[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Fedw Divination

There is a thread about Fedw and a list of diviners in the Announcements and Introductions Section, but it may not have been updated in a while.  You might want to post there to get more information.

Thanks, Nai.

I'd argue that "community" could include just you and your ancestors or you and your gods.

Buddhism has bodhisattavas (in Mahayana) and the Buddha (which would be in most cases a revered ancestor instead of a god).  And there are plenty of myths here too and ritual depending on where Buddhism is being practiced.  

And Taoism has the Tao and deities depending on which branch of Taoism we're talking about here.  

Within my religious studies classes, religion was defined as:

1) Belief in an ultimate power (this could be deities, energy, ancestors, spirits etc)
2) Myth (sacred narratives, stories)
3) Ritual
4) Community

Quote from: Nehet

Maybe I'm approaching Her the wrong way?   It's entirely possible that I've built this up in my head to the point that I'm terrified of Aset but that the apprehension is coming from my own pre-conceived ideas. I hear a lot of things about how she's really picky about offerings, really likes things to be done "formally," etc, and I don't want to come to her with good intentions and just piss her off.

I also have limited shrine space.  I've heard she doesn't like to share shrine space with anyone, and I just don't have enough room to make her a shrine of her own.  

I actually had a statue of her that was in my shrine, and I got the sense that she actually wanted me to take it out.  That hurt.  :(

Since you are getting close to Nebet Het, perhaps Aset is trying to get you to pay more attention to Her Sister by stepping back?  

It can be hard to deal with both of Them at once especially when you are trying to get to know them.  I would suggest focusing on one first.  They can mirror each other and they are complimentary opposites also so getting to know one can help you with insight into the other.  

Aset has told me that She will except any sincere offering from anyone and I have found it does not need to be formal.  I have just given her offerings out of the blue on many occasions.  Good intentions I don't think would piss her off.  I have found that sincerity is something she highly values.  Just don't offer her pork or fish, and I think you'll be fine.  

If you wish to add Her to the altar I would start talking to Her about it.  Explain the situation and then ask where and next to whom she would like to be placed on the shrine.  Often times I find if I start to talk to her about something a solution will pop into my head shortly after.  She could ask you to place her somewhere completely different than you expect, or she may put a small table into your lap from out of nowhere or she may tell you to put her next to Wesir or Nebet Het until you are able to get a shrine space for her.  The possibilities are endless for this goddess.  :-)  

I used to have her on a shrine with other deities until I had enough space to give them separate altars so I'm sure Aset would understand.  

And I believe there are instances where Aset would share shrine space with another Name.  She is far more flexible than I think we give her credit for.  She is a shapeshifter afterall.  

Your apprehension keeps making me think of my sig line: "I am protection from fear".

Taqaisenu is a Fedw diviner for Hethert-Sekhmet.

That is a beautiful shrine and not a bad picture at all!

I feel closest to my Mother Aset, Nebet Het, Wepwawet and Sekhmet.

Thank you for your reply.  

Perhaps I should have worded my question differently because that did not answer my question.  

What I'm asking is, what was the position of Shemsu-Ankh created for?  Why is there a level of Shemsu-Ankh membership?  What is the reason for having this level of membership?  

I hope this clarifies my question.

Em hotep,

Why was the title and function of Shemsu-Ankh created? What is its purpose in Kemetic Orthodoxy?

Interesting choice of words.

You reminded me that in Her myths, Aset is a single Parent.

I just had a lightbulb moment.  

Thank you.
