Ok, the first thing that popped into my mind when I read this was "Your Ren is the Ohm of your soul".  How's that for mixing religions? :D


I like that. Makes alot of sense :)

"In MY thinking, this means that She is the Netjer that "creates" what we are to become thus everyones "parent"."

The same could be said for Khnum who is said to form your body and give health at birth.
Also notable there, Khnum is known as "Father of Fathers and Mother of Mothers" as well as "Father of Nejter, Creator of things from Himself, Maker of Duat and Earth"  Which would make him creator of...everything?

Renenet is also known as "Lady of nourishment" which is esential at birth as well, so her fuction in the birthing chamber (and for that matter for all life) is doubled.

I don't know that it necessarily means that She is everyones mother because she provides us with a Ren, just as Meskhenet is not everyones mother even though she determines our destinys. In fact Renenet may not know what our Ren is, she may just be the means of delivery.

Anyone know who was doing the Shemsu names in a typeset that was suitable for tattoos? I'm cleaning up my Udjat and want to add my Shemsu name and a few other glyphs. I've been holding off waiting for my Shemsu bookmark to arrive...but as I sent it off last Feb. and still haven't heard anything, it must not have arrived. I know Hemet is super busy, so I was hoping maybe someone else could help me. Please?

Thanks so much,
Munef

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Christmas?
« on: November 16, 2009, 12:18:56 am »
We celebrate holidays all month long.

My nephew, Iahemheb-ka celebrates his birthday on December 10th. My brother celebrates his birthday Christmas eve. We celebrate what we jokingly call Solistmas, starting the 21st till the 25th. We have our own traditions, including games, and faerie gifts, etc. On the 25th we cook a huge meal and invite our families over, around 20 people or so, all enjoying the season together.

In our house we have a Christmas tree, decorated with "winter", and natural things...birds, bugs, dinosaurs, snowflakes...lol an odd assortment.

We also change our family altar (my household is a "pagan" one) seasonally, during winter its decorated with holly, mistletoe, ivy, stags, stars, snowflakes.

Shortly after the new year its my birthday....

I was raised catholic, but my parents are very accepting of my choices... so i'm not obligated to participate in any Christian celebrations.

I think people are what make Christmas or whatever you celebrate this time of year what it is. I would rather celebrate the year with my family at my table than get any presents at all. It dosen't have to be about the gifts or the money. For us its a time of year to remember all the wonderful things in life and why.

Thats an awesome tattoo Khesret....

I only have the one egyptian tattoo.. an Udjat on my right upper arm (its green, purplish blue, and a sky blue) I plan on getting it reworked in September a bit and adding my Shemsu name. I'm also working on balancing that out with one of Dad on my left upper arm...but the design I'm finding a bit difficult. I want him in griffin form, but with the "egyptian" wings and his proper "crown" (kinda like  this , but sitting)....wish I knew a kemetic tattoo artist...

On my down time I wear a myriad of Egyptian and Greek jewellery but they arent prodominately displayed as I got over pagans and new agers touching my pendants (especially my A'set or Hekate pendants) without permission.


< offtopic >
I hate that... I had someone, not particularly pagan or anything, just walk up to me, grab my necklace, and say "OOH that's pretty!" I was taken aback - that's a little bit of a personal space violation in addition to being weird.
< / offtopic >  


It irriates me to no end when people do that.
What I find worse though in the pagan community is the "automatic hug". I don't know these people...and even if I did I may never hug them. I have only hugged my best friend of 6 years once....when she was getting a divorce. I'm not a touchy feely person...and it drives me crazy to have people all up in my personal bubble.

my cartouche came from  The Pyramid Collection. There overpriced IMO but the pendant is beatiful and very detailed.

I think the "bad form" idea as I understand it is because the cartouche is reserved for royalty. However, I also understand the cartouche to be an extended shen, a symbol of divine protection and eternity. I thought it would be ok to wear as my mother gave it to me...and who better to offer such a symbol than your mother?

I switch between three pieces,  Ankh   Falcon Head and a silver cartouche of my birth name my mother gave me. I usually wear the falcon head. I used to wear an udjat, but as I have that forever embedded in my skin...I don't wear the necklace anymore.  

I also wear an anklet I made for my father, of lapis chips, lime serpentine squares, and copper seed beads and an anklet I made for my beloveds of alternating carnelion rounds and gold beads(Sekhmet), malachite rounds and wood beads(Khnum), and lapis rounds and gold beads (Amun-Ra).

I see alot of raptors where I live.

I get the Heru-Sa-Aset vibe from the red shoulder and red tail hawks. We also have the  snail kite  that gives me that same impression.
The  coopers hawk  is how I perceive My father. Though the  osprey kinda also seems right too.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Your Shemsu Name and You
« on: March 15, 2007, 06:09:22 pm »
Part A.

1.) What is your Shemsu name and meaning?
Munefmontu--Montu the guardian or watcher

2.) What is your RPD lineup?
Daughter of Montu Beloved of Amun-Ra, Sekhmet, and Khnum

3.) How long have you been named, and how long did you wait before being named?
I was named Dec 27th 2006 so almost 3 months...My RPD was Dec 23rd...so I waited a whole 4 days....lol I guess that's not really waiting is it?

4.) Are there any interesting puns in your name that you have heard of? Please share them if you're willing to.
Not that I know of...Of course I didn't ask.

5.) Did you try to figure out what your name would be before you got it? If so, were you close?
You know...I was just so elated at finding out who my Father was that it never occured to me to try to figure it out. After I was given my name and I started delving into it's meaning...it really makes sense.

6.) Did you use any Kemetic names before you got your Shemsu name? If so, what were they and what did they mean?

I used the name Ankhesenma'at. It means "living for truth" or "she who lives for truth".

Senebty,
Munef
