[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Tefnut Syncretization?
« on: April 24, 2017, 02:00:32 pm »
Em hotep!


This thought crossed my mind earlier today, and I figured I would ask! I've been reading a little on Tefnut lately (it was raining a lot, and I was thinking about the Names associated with rain/water), and I was wondering:

Besides the Tefnut/Hethert syncretization that has showed up historically, are there any other combinations of Tefnut-(Name) that have been recorded (historically, in RPDs, so on and so forth)?


Senebty,
Elijah

I have seen on lists in the LAGG for Aset and Nebet  Het that they were identified with Tefnut on some occasions.  So there is an Aset-Tefnut and Nebet Het-Tefnut.

Takeheruaset has published a book of hymns to Aset from antiquity; you can find information here.

Thank you for the recommendation!

Em hotep,


I knew a former member who was a daughter of Sobek-Ra. 

Have you seen Sobekembiti's website on Sobek?  Here is the link:  https://persebek.wordpress.com/

Hey, does anyone have any info on Amenti?  Whether historical or personal, I'm interested.  And the Internet doesn't have much on Her.  Literally all I know is that She is the goddess who greets and rejuvenates the dead.  Anyone got any more than that?  Anyone have a relationship with Her?

Senebty,

Taji

I was divined as a daughter of Aset Amenti.  Amenti is the Lady of the West title or aspect of Nut, Aset, Hethert and Nebet Het.  All of them pretty much intersect there in that space of liminality, stars and the dead. 

As Amentet (the Goddess West Herself), the only source I can think of is the LAGG which is the source for what Naisenu linked to.

Hello, all! I've had Nebthet on the brain lately. Dunno if this is because she has a procession, like, now, or because I'm a Set-kid (any Set kids work with Nebthet?), or what, but I am looking for information of all kinds! Unfortunately, she seems to be kind of tricky to find information about; most of what I've read of her has been the same thing over and over. No new information, not a lot of depth. I've read the Prayerbook's entry on her (and the whole book, hehe), her Henadology page, her section on both Kemet.org and Wpwt Wiki, and a bit from Geraldine Pinch's "Egyptian Mythology."


Halp, guiz. Hallppp. D:

Here is a dissertation on Nebet Het:  Levai, Jessica. Aspects of the Goddess Nephthys, Especially During the Greaco-Roman Period in Egypt. Rhode Island: Brown University Dissertation, 2007.

Also, Nebet Het is definitely an Eye of Ra.  She and Aset guide the temples as the flagstaffs and help the sun rise and set.  She destroys enemies with flame etc. 

I also have information on Nebet Het on my website fiercelybrightone.com

Em hotep,
 
EX: Navigation of Osiris to Abydo,

What does navigation mean in this context?
How/ what does one do to recognize/ actions for this type of event?
Is there information available on rituals for these holidays/ festivals or should we improvise?
Senebty,
Jendayi

Navigation festivals are festivals where the Gods' Images were brought out in procession and carried on a boat on the Nile often to another temple. 

They could also be a boat procession in a temple lake as well. 

Processions in general had a few things associated with them such as barque divination (the barque with the divine image of the god was used as a yes/no divination system) and some processions had certain things associated with them like torches or light to help guide the way. 

Now I'm picturing little statues of Gods being placed in some container and placed in bowl of water.  Hehe. Oh!  And then you could surround that image with tealights!  Oh, wow.  That would be pretty!

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: The "Eye of Heru" concept
« on: March 02, 2015, 06:53:49 pm »
There are lots of layers to the Eye. Wholeness, protection, restoration, healing, totality and it can be given as an offering as well. So whenever I look at it, I think of those things.

-Devo

Adding to what you said, Devo, the Eye of Heru can also be used instead of the word offering. 

So Take to Yourself this Eye of Heru is Take to Yourself this Offering.   The Eye of Heru is analogous to all offerings. 

The Eye of Heru heals and restores which is what offerings do: they feed the Kau of both gods and people.  This is why we eat the offerings of the Gods and why we pour libations to Them.  We feed their Kau and our Kau are fed when we partake of the offerings too.

I have to say, I found that genuinely moving. I'd never really thought of it like that before. I mean, I'd debated and used ideas along those lines, but you just put it so well into words that I really can't express it. I think you've helped me realise a lot about my faith and about myself by saying that. Thank you very much!

I am so glad that helped you!  To be honest, I needed the reminder myself.  :-)

Everything in relation to my experience as a Kemetist has revolved around Ra. He was the one who appeared to me in a vision and made me convert, and He's always been the one answering me when I try to talk to the Netjer.

Ra may want you to focus your worship on Him alone for awhile.  Please feel welcome to stay in the community.  We have sorts of people here, at various levels of membership. 

Any of the Netjeru can be honored in nature.  Ra especially since He is the sun.  I tell Him hi sometimes when I go outside. 

Nature and animals are the (bau) or manifestations of the Gods Themselves.  It is perfectly fine to honor the Gods within the natural forces.  Set is the thunderstorm, Ra is the sun and it's Rays, Sun Goddesses are the sunbeams, Tefnut is the moisture of the clouds, Geb is the ground, Shu is the air and many Gods are the rivers.  Aset is the rain, river and solar rays. 

The Gods are not just in Their shrines.  They are everywhere.  They permeate all existence.  This is  Their creation and They live and breathe as we do. 

Breathe and you are worshiping God.  Ra's first breath is the air that we breathe, Ra's first light is in every sunrise and Ra's first emergence is from the first waters.  Ra's first tear is humankind.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: So Netjeru in our daily life?
« on: January 28, 2015, 05:54:10 pm »

There is Nut - the sky. As far as I understand it allows everything to be born in the universe. Sort of like a shell.
Geb - earth. Here I have a dilemma. Is Geb the earth itself and a living entity at the same time, or is He a deity that controls or affects earth?

The same with Khonsu and Re. How are they bonded with the moon and the sun?

Senebty.

Geb is the Earth God as in He's the god of the land, plants, rocks etc. 

Typhoons are storms and that would fall under Set's domain as all storms are His. 

Ra is the sun god.  Moon gods have a mythology of being hurt and healed (like Heru or Wesir; and I think Khonsu may have this too..not sure).   Some of the moon cycles are celebrated as the birth and life cycle of the god in question which works great for Khonsu and Heru as they both have child forms.

Thank you both so much! I'll keep all of that in mind!

I can't light candles or incense, so I can't burn any scents. Would something like pot pourri go well on a shrine as an alternative? I know it's a permanent scent, but it's the most I can do at this point.

You can also get some Florida Water (scented water) and put some in a bowl for scent (depending on the Netjer being honored, obviously).

Many gods can teach you about endurance.  

Aset is a lady who has endured much hardship both in losing  and searching for Wesir and in raising a son alone.  She is a goddess of strength and also the disenfranchised.  She also slays Apep every night in tandem with Set.  

If He is the strongest of gods, then She is the strongest of goddesses...

Personally, I don't see that much difference.

Sekhmet-Mut to me is more queenly and regal.  Wab Sobeqsenu has a page about Sekhmet-Mut here that you may find helpful:  http://sobeq.wordpress.com/about-sekhmet-mut/

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Hethert's "Great Nine"?
« on: September 29, 2014, 10:37:20 pm »
Great Nine here is probably referring to the group of Gods in that given nome.

Enneads are different groups of Gods and Goddesses depending on the nome.  For example the Ennead of Heliopolis is:  Atum, Tefnut, Shu, Geb, Nut, Wesir, Aset, Nebet Het, Set and Heru-Wer.  Abydos Ennead has Wesir, Aset, Heru-sa-Aset, Wepwawet, among others.  And not all of them have 9 numbers. Some have less and some have more.  

For Hethert's Ennead here you may want to look at Dendera for that city's Ennead.  If you saw this on the festival calendar, which one did you see?  And did it mention which city this festival was celebrated in?  That may help narrow things down.
