[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Re: Hi there.

Welcome back, although I’m relatively new here

I always keep an eye open on Etsy, the majority of the stuff there does look plain and normal, but sometimes you get some really nice crafted pieces.

But then I go to Etsy for just about anything haha

Thank you for all of your replies, I feel welcomed here. And it does help that questions are encouraged here, I know some people might just dive blindly into anything.

Hope you don't mind me stepping in here, but if I read that correctly you're saying that Akhu veneration isn't a requirement? Or is that because you're not a KO member that it isn't?

It's something I've been wondering myself

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / RPD time limit?
« on: August 20, 2017, 12:20:00 pm »
So, I'm a long long way off this, I know. Still curious.

To my knowledge, as you are made a Remetj after the Beinngers Class if you so choose, you are then (after a period of time) sent paperwork for the RPD.

My question is, after you become a Remetj and are sent the paperwork for RPD, is there a time limit as to when you can apply for your RPD? Say you thought about picking it up after "anything else" for a year or two, would it still be there in so-called availability?

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Beginners Class Application Question
« on: August 20, 2017, 12:15:52 pm »
You've probably seen tens of hundreds of these threads, so I'll keep this one short.

Weeks ago I applied to start the October Beginners Class, and even though at one question confused me, I filled it out as best I could.

However, looking back and going way back through the related forum questions, it seems like that one question comes up numerous times in a 'what does it mean?' way. And from that I realised I'd misinterpreted it - I'd answered it in the way of what I could bring in myself, not what qualities I had. I could have done so much more...

Although I know this'll probably get some strange looks, would the way it had been answered affect if I got accepted into the next class or not?

With that...

What would need to be put down in order to not be accepted? Demeaning, trolling behaviour for example.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: UK sources of Natron?

Ah, thank you, I might have to go hunting for that thread then, if it's hopefully still around.

The nice people here helped to allay my fears of using an amount of natron that'd aggravate my eczema, so I figured starting off with a miniscule quantity couldn't hurt to try.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / UK sources of Natron?
« on: August 19, 2017, 01:11:37 pm »
After learning/reading that I don't need to absolutely coat myself in it, I got looking.

Now, the majority of online sellers seem to be in the US, and from my varying experiences with international shipping... charges/customs usually ramp up the price.

I know I do have the option of making it myself (from brief reading, I think it's bicarbonate of soda and salt), but I don't think my parents would appreciate natron/its components caked onto their saucepans...

Anyone know of any UK-based sources?

Or maybe someone has some tips/tricks to making it.

Thank you for your answers, it has helped to see it from differing angles.

Although now I have a similar question, mainly regarding akhu shrines - somewhere I heard that some use a Senut shrine for this purpose, whereas some have a separate akhu shrine. But then, if you don't/aren't meant to take back the offerings to the akhu, if they're on the same shrine space do you then have separate containers for libation/offering?

Welcome to the place, I just joined a day ago and I already feel incredibly welcomed and not-so-much of a stumbling newbie haha, they're patient people

Cinder - Ah, brilliant, thank you for your reply, even though individually personal it still helps by far.

I wasn't too sure if there were any rules to stick by regarding shrines and/or worship aside from what I've read about the Senut.

Awibemhethert - Having one shrine serving both functions makes the most sense to me, and when I think about it I do feel it'd be the right way to go. Of course, over time this may change, maybe if even I got more physical space as well, but it feels correct to be using one shrine for both functions in the here and now.

I'm not involved in any (other) religion so me doing any other kind of worship wouldn't be an issue, heh.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / The occurrence of "ghost" limbs
« on: August 15, 2017, 12:41:20 pm »
Some of you might know of the term "phantom limb" - where you feel a 'ghost' limb that isn't really there, yet at times it can feel like it's a part of your body.

And I was wondering (since other entities like headmates, spirit guides, and even just identifying with something can cause phantom limbs), whether the presence of the god/esses themselves can cause these sorts of sensations to an individual?

If someone has got any experience of what I'm (attempting to) describe, I'd love to read about it.

That's good to know, there's a few older threads that look like something interesting, I'd rather make sure I'm allowed to rather than get my post removed haha.

I'm not the kind of person to jump blindly, so I may or may not drop in activity at times. I have to say from reading the forums I've learnt a bit more than where I first started.

Is there a policy on replying to old threads, say only replying to some that are X months old and not over a year?

So, reading through here I see people talking about formal and informal worship, and I'm curious.

First, you have the Senut shrine which I would imagine is the daily formal worship. But then people talk about informal shrines, and I wonder if they're used one and the same, or if you have to have two differing shrines for both formal and informal worship.

Also, what does 'informal worship' really emcompass? Does it count if you just sit there talking to them in your head?
