[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / What are you doing for Egypt?

At first glance that looks like an excellent resource! I appreciate you sharing it. I admit I am only able to make a cursory reading of their site but it looks promising.

It's just so hard to find any images of Nut. She wasn't depicted in statuary very often in antiquity either, to my knowledge. She's quite cute as a Weegyptian.

This was just wonderfully interesting to read, Sedjfai. I don't particularly do much reading about these types of spirits, so this was a fascinating bit of information. I'm just so tickled at the idea of catfish as expert navigators of the Duat.

Very well said, both Sedjfai and Tjemsy!

Em hotep!

I believe Tjemsy is referring to our weekly Dua and Saq-Nisut simulcasts, which are held via Internet Relay Chat aka IRC. There should be information about this available to you (and all Remetj) in the private areas of the forums and in the sidebar.

I think that, as is often the case when trying to suss out the "truth" about a deity, the answer to "which one is His real father?" is "Yes."

I think that the relationships between the gods tell us more about the nature of each god than about the literal connection. Considering each deity attested as Yinepu's father tells us something different about His role and His function in the Unseen world. We each may find ourselves drawn to Yinepu in relationship to other gods uniquely -- for example, I find myself closer to Him as a child of Set and Nebthet than any other configuration, which perhaps speaks to the side of Yinepu that I am closest with. Seeing Yinepu as the son of Ra is perhaps indicative of the aspect of His that you connect best with.

Em hotep!

I think it's perfectly fine to pray multiple times per day -- depending on what you mean by prayer.

The Senut ritual is meant to be performed no more than once a day, because life must also be lived outside of the shrine. However, saying short prayers throughout the day makes perfect sense. I've often made multiple offerings during one day, or offered prayers on waking and before bed.

Praying over and over again for the same thing might be less than desirable, for reasons you mentioned. Multiple prayers of different sorts, or prayers of gratitude or praise throughout the day, would be well received I am sure. :)

The largest amount of information is available in the Ancient Egyptian Daybook, published by our Nisut (𓋹𓍑𓋴) last year. You can also search the private forums for "Moomas" and there will be more information. (We can't link to private forums on the public forums, sorry!)

Very nice shrine, Zaituwy (and everyone who has posted previously)! I love seeing how everyone honors the gods.

Prayers for your Grandfather's continued healing! May Sekhmet protect him and grant him a safe recovery.

Em hotep, Fabricio!

The "Moomas" festival is actually several days long!

According to the Ancient Egyptian Daybook, the Navigation of Hethert, also known as "She is Led Back", takes place from I Peret 19 through I Peret 21 (21 December through 23 December), and continues I Peret 28 through II Peret 4 (30 December through 5 January).

There is also a festival known as "The Establishment of the Celestial Cow", which celebrates Ra's ascent to the heavens with Nut, taking place on I Peret 25 (27 December).

What we modernly call Moomas is a whole season of festivals to celebrate! Offerings to Hethert, Nut, and Mehet-Weret are all appropriate. Some common offerings include milk, sweet foods like cookies, chocolates, or cakes, perfumes, or gold-colored items.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: A few Akhu shrine questions
« on: December 11, 2017, 06:18:45 am »
Em hotep!

1 - Would I need to re-purify the shrine after I moved it?

The akhu do not require as much purity as the gods, simply because they're human, not divine. However, when in doubt, it can't hurt to purify.

2 - I have two bowls for water and food offerings, how long do you leave the offerings on the shrine for, or do you remove them both after the fact?

I let the water evaporate naturally, and any food offerings I generally leave overnight unless it is unsafe to do so, then I will leave for a period of time and remove, and respectfully dispose of (either wrap in a paper towel and set in the trash, or bury).

3 - Do you leave the water topped up every day, or do you let it empty as and when?

I try to make sure there is always water on the akhu shrine - as it naturally evaporates, I'll top it off. No thirsty ancestors on my watch!

Ii-wy em hotep (welcome in peace), Nenrenef! I am happy you are finding such fulfillment in building a relationship with the Netjeru. I hope you enjoy the conversation here. If you aren't already enrolled, you may wish to consider taking the House of Netjer Beginners' course, which will give you a good foundation in Kemetic Orthodoxy beyond Senut. :)
