This is one of my favorite things Taswau and I have ever done together! And what a beautiful picture to commemorate that time. It's been an honor to always carry my Fathers with me every day. <3

Howdy! Good to meet ya, and welcome back! I'd say it's an excellent time to do it, being Wepwawet's year, but any time is as good as ever. :D


[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: I can’t communicate with the gods?
« on: September 23, 2019, 07:44:09 am »
Em hotep, Omen!

I'm sorry that you've been having a difficult time connecting with the Gods. As Sudjawi said, this could be a matter of a fallow time- which happens to all of us on occasion for reasons like mental/physical health issues or imbalances, such as needing to focus on mundane matters- but there can also be a variety of other things affecting your experiences through the years.

On one hand, there could be the influence of you expecting a specific Netjer, or for Them to react or speak in a certain way, so it feels as if you are deaf or that they do not respond. I had this issue years ago when I was first working with Djehuty and Wepwawet, to the point that I didn't think They cared, but I had to learn to communicate with them. For many folks (and admittedly I am one of them, so my experiences will color my opinion), there is also an element of spiritual discipline that is outside offerings and requests. Netjer is autonomous, and will not work as simply as "insert coin offering for results." Taking time to calm the mind, accept any response without expectation, or learning discernment (beyond asking for signs) in how to separate your internal dialogue will help. This is easily said, but is a practice one always refines throughout their lifetime, so please do not fret if it doesn't work "right away!"

There are times where a Netjer will enter our lives for a brief time, to teach us something or help with something, and then step back. This is common and normal. I have personally experienced this (and am currently experiencing this!) with Sobek.

There are also simply times that a God will not respond to someone, and that's okay. There can be reasons for this beyond our knowing- I had this happen in regards to Bes back in the day. I thought we'd jive well and we didn't and that's cool! I found what I thought I would experience in a relationship with Bes through other means and experiences.

Ultimately, I can empathize with the frustration and mindset of someone looking for an answer and not feeling as if they are receiving a response from the divine. This is not a response to your questions easily given, as the solution is only something that you can find, but please take a breath and know that it's okay. Not all of Netjer hates you, I am confident. Continue to approach Them with respect, kindness, and an open mind, and I'm sure that you will find what you need.

I wish you luck in your journey, and hope this aids you in even some small way. Also, remember to be kind to yourself, too. Spirit is a lifetime process. <3

Em hotep, Seta!

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any significance the number alone has... other than being divisible by 4, the number of completion, sixfold. That being said, it's a very surface level answer, and possibly one of the first most kemetics would lean towards. :3

If you are looking outside of said kemetic context, there is also numerology, where the number 24 is broken down into 6 (ironically as much as that 4 is multiplied by, above), which represents home life, family, commitment, harmony. Either way, it seems to have a positive vibe around it, at first glance!

I'd be interested to see if some other folks can chime in with more insight if there is any.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Netjer and good dreams?
« on: June 16, 2019, 10:58:24 am »
Em hotep!

As someone that deals with chronic nightmares, I can empathize with this. Historically, homes with children would appeal to Bes for relief of nightmares, but I have also found success in praying to Yinepu as well. Though, and this is purely my experience, there are times where He will aid me in facing the reason of why I'm having those nightmares, so a bit of healing as well... and while painful, has never steered me wrong and I feel better for it. :D

There are also some forms of heka you might be able to do, or magic if that is up your alley.

I hope you find some relief, sleeping peacefully is a necessity.

Welcome to the HoN! What a colorful job and hobby you have! I hope you have a good time exploring KO, and potentially deepening your relationship with Sekhmet and other Netjeru. 💛

Welcome to the House, I hope you find what you’re looking for here!

As a child of Set and Beloved of Djehuty, I’m always up for talking about Them, if you’d like to PM me.


Em hotep, Hunefer!

Most certainly, the Netjeru do not need statues in order for us to worship them. One of the things that I find most fascinating in my own connection with Them is feeling Them in the world that we live in, through people or nature itself (Nature and Netjer- both words have a very similar ring to them! ;) ). If you believe the Netjeru are present, as They are, the statues are never necessary.

Statues, as kept in shrines, are more of a focus for some to direct prayer to. Some people are more visual, and that helps direct that energy. Alternatively, the statue can be had as an item to honor the Netjer in question, to contribute Their imagery to a space or function within a space. The only time to my knowledge that a Netjer is said to "live" within a statue is an open statue, which the State icons of priests fall under.

I hope this helps, and I love hearing the sentiment of worship and connection to Netjer coming directly from the heart, again and again. <3

I do not disagree, with you. :) as someone with a chosen name beyond my own that is used amongst the Shemsu of the Kemetic Orthodoxy, I understand the importance of your own, chosen name.
I say this merely to illuminate that perhaps giving these kind folks the benefit of the doubt, that it was not done with disrespect, may be appropriate. There’s a lot of misspellings of other names here, as well. When my name got changed after I became a Shemsu, it was actually misspelled as well! However, it was just an accident, and the moderator fixed it accordingly. No harm meant.

You’re no less important than anyone else, here. But at the end of the day, we are all still human and susceptible to error. 💛 That is all.

Erm, if I might comment, I'd like to say that I double checked your name, but aside from that... your name isn't commonly spelled that way for most folk, so there are chances it might have been "auto-corrected" for those on mobile, or misunderstood. I don't think that this happened with any ill intent. :)

Ii-wy em hotep, Lukas! Welcome to the HoN forums. :)

I hope you find all you need, here, and if you ever want to talk about my Father, Ra, feel free to PM me. I love to chat about Him and learn more, so perhaps we can together!


Rev Sobeq, thank you for keeping us posted on this info. Also- I’m not sure who handles it- but I think the addition of the PayPal giving fund button on the front page is excellent. It’s a lot more accessible, now, and a nice reminder. :)

Looking forward to a more prosperous month for the Temple. 💛
