[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Re: Well Hello there!

Hello again <3

The information in the course focuses on acquainting you with the structure and beliefs of the Kemetic Orthodox Religion. But, this is a religion of doing rather than “believing,” so there are not lessons in there which stress “this is exactly what you need to believe to be a part of us.” Rather, you will learn about what it is you do that would make you a Kemetic Orthodox should you choose to become a member of the religion at the end of the course. You will be given opportunities from very early on in the lessons and throughout the course to make those steps and see how it feels.

As far as discussions on specific concepts, iirc you will be given chances to ask about those. I believe that material is covered too, but again, the focus is on the doing. If you decide to take the course, as a student you will have access to more material that you’ll be able to search through for discussions on ma’at and other fun concepts like djet and neheh time.

For me personally, I felt like I found my home when I came to the House of Kemetic Orthodoxy. Before classes actually started, I was given access to more threads (and you will gain access too if you decide to become a student) and I spent literally hours a day searching and reading over threads. I was enamored with Netjer and the Netjeru and wanted to read everything I could to learn more. I’m not sure I was so much “challenged” as I was in love and wanted more.

Great health and love,
Ewe

Hiya!

Ha’aut gave such wonderful advice, so I just wanted to comment and add just a tiny bit to it.

I also had my own doubts and ended up waiting a round of classes before applying to the next one. I still have doubts even though I just went through a significant spiritual revelation—doubts will never go away entirely and like Ha’aut, I think it’s healthy.

It looks as though application review for the next class starts after 20 February, so I’m guessing you have until then to submit your application. If it is submitted after that date, they will hold your application for the next class.

Great health and love,
Ewe

I love the myths where humanity’s creation from the Creator deity’s tears is emphasized. The Creator brings the gods into existence through the Creator’s sweat, through physical exertion, but humanity is created through extreme emotion.
The dichotomy there is beautiful to me.

Hello MauMau981!

Ptah is a deity I love very much, and I have had moments where I felt a connection to Ptah-Sokar-Wesir. To me, it was like a single deity made up of flickering images/persons of each of Them—it’s hard to explain haha. He felt deep and peaceful.

Since starting the beginner class and graduating to Remetj, I have come across many deities I wasn’t quite actively pursuing but for whatever reason, I kept finding myself thinking of Them. These include: Bes, Montu, and Raet. I did not have any interest in Them, nor did I even know about Them, before having contact with KO. Now, as a Remetj, I give more thought and prayer time to Raet out of any other deity.

That’s a very cool image!

Iirc, the bird which the Greeks called the phoenix was what the ancient Egyptians called the bennu bird. It is a great heron.

Regardless, peacocks are identified with royalty. And this image is fascinating alone even if it’s without historical basis. I’m glad you shared it.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: What do you wear?
« on: December 30, 2020, 09:29:34 am »
I have a left Eye of Horus ring I wear on my left middle finger most days. It was gifted to me over ten years ago before I was a polytheist.

I can’t help but kiss it when putting it on and taking it off. <3

Em hotep!

I believe this may be “the” Ra I’ve recently dialed into as well.
It’s been a couple days since you posted this—have you gone ahead and taken the dive into approaching Him? I’ve very little personal experience to share, unfortunately. What I can share is that He feels very... remote/distant.

[PRIVATE] Q&A / Interview of Rev Dr Tamara Siuda?

Em hotep!

I’ve been browsing through archived AtN threads, and I saw mention of a History channel documentary which the Nisut was interviewed for. Is this video uploaded somewhere? Does someone have a YouTube link maybe? I’d like to watch it.

Thank you!
Senebty,

[PRIVATE] Q&A / Re: Senut Experiences
« on: September 20, 2020, 03:13:05 pm »
For me, having Their Name pop into my head or the desire to speak said Name aloud is enough for me to feel sure on what (or Who) I’m experiencing. I don’t so much look to worldly associations unless something is happening repeatedly or feels significantly related to other spiritual experiences.
As far as discernment, I think it’s something that just takes time <3

[PRIVATE] Q&A / Your First Senut
« on: August 17, 2020, 06:34:59 am »
For those who have had a chance to perform their first Senut, I’d love to hear about your experience as far as you’re comfortable sharing.

I performed Senut for the first time this last Friday—I was both nervous and excited. Making the natron and going through that purification process actually made me feel ready for ritual. Really though, it’s hard for me to describe how I actually felt after the bath other than “different” and “lighter.”

With the actual ritual, I felt clumsy and awkward, but I felt that way the first few times I did ritual as a practicing polytheist too. I wasn’t sure what to say once I got to the personal time part, so I ended up spending maybe 5-10 minutes there. I’d either blabber on (that’s just how it felt haha) for a few minutes, or I’d sit quietly and just try to focus on Netjer.

Reverting the offering, eating it during that time I think, was the most memorable part of Senut besides how the natron bath made me feel. That almost felt like I was sitting at Their table in a way.

So that was my first Senut. I won’t be able to perform Senut again for about a week, but I’d like to try adding in a moment for the Akhu next time  :)

[PRIVATE] Q&A / Re: Spending time with the Netjer

“Godphones” are absolutely going to idiosyncratic, and I think something you work on at an individual level with Netjer. You’ll communicate with Netjer in the way that works best with you, in my experience. Some people have these emotional feelings, others take special notice of things happening with birds/wildlife around them, others feel something when listening to a specific song and have a moment where they feel they’re noticing this song because of a message from Netjer, others feel it when something sticks out to them in conversation with another person, some experience this “godphone” in dreams. Some only communicate well through divination methods.

In any case, it’s going to be personal and something you learn to take notice of. <3
