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. 💛

Em hotep, Sundust!

What a lovely quote, and welcome to the community. I hope you find something that echoes the same love that you put into your introduction.

May the Netjeru bless you with illumination and fellowship.


[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Theodicy - The problem of evil
« on: March 26, 2019, 08:17:41 am »
Ooh, another great topic! I hope you don’t mind if I contribute some additional thoughts, dear Neheh. :3

In Kemeticism, we can attribute “evil” or ill will in the form of the /s/n/a/k/e, the Uncreated, or the broader definition of “isfet.” Commonly such things are the subject of execrations, which can be likened to things such as banishments in other practices.

As for the Netjeru being purely good or bad, the idea of Their “alignments” are much more complex than “X Name is good and pure” or “X Name is bad and nasty.” For explainations on this, I like to refer to my Father, Set, Who does things that are scary, even violent at times... but overall He is a champion of Ma’at like the other Gods.

The idea of preventing harm to innocents is another very complex topic in my experience. There are times They can, and will intervene- I have had such experiences, even. Otherwise, there may be lessons to be found in such events or, because They are not omnipotent, unable to prevent everything. There is a thread somewhere where I believe that this is discussed, and that things such as illness may be regarded as a form of isfet, but it can be one that is not self made- IE you aren’t a bad person if you get sick, sickness just “is.”

Netjer does what Netjer can. But They are also selective in what will be an appropriate influence, and limited in Their displays of influence, despite being much, much grander than our own. ;)


[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Question regarding Predestination
« on: March 26, 2019, 06:58:03 am »
Em hotep, Hunefer- and goodness, I reread which board this was on like 12 times, and I'm pretty sure I'm not accidentally posting in AtN during the morning hours, again. :p

I think that first and foremost, the thing to note is that our Gods, as great and wonderful as They are, are not omnipotent beings in the sense that some other figures of divinity may posses, such as the power to see all, know all, at any point in time. Personally, this is one of the things that appealed to me concerning Kemeticism, as the idea of a truly omnipotent god just didn't jive with me, personally (which isn't to say it's a negative for those that do!).

Veering into a bit of UPG (Unverified Personal Gnosis) territory, I think that we always have our freedoms. Do I believe that Netjer can guide us and influence our lives? Unmistakably, yes. Do I think that They know what we are going to do in the future? Perhaps. I'd like to think that as humans, we are a bit younger and easier to read for Them to make some very specific "big picture" educated guesses about the things that we will do and how we will grow, but overall we retain our free will- think about how that very same will is put on the scale before Judgement in the Hall. :D If They kinda controlled everything that we do, I don't think that such a thing would be necessary.

I hope this helps and gives a little food for thought. c: Very fascinating topic to think on and start the day!

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Set and anger
« on: February 14, 2019, 09:02:07 am »
Ah, my Father. Set is one that I associate with anger, but in the ways of healing. He knows the heart in ways that are so intricate and well-versed, and has been the forefront of my healing in the past year in many ways.
I used to be scared of Him, you know. He approached me as a brand new polythiest, when I didn't know who He was, and I was afraid. He respected that. And when I was ready, he led me in gently by the hands and into an embrace. He teaches me to deal with anger through action, though understanding why I feel the way that I do. Also to play "Devil's Advocate" when I'm getting consumed by my desire for justice so that I do not become truly blind to all sides of the situation.
Set is a powerful, necessary force. While he can "bring down the Tower" (if you're a fan of tarot symbology), He has also been (and continues to be) a kind, and great source of comfort for me when I have had so much pain, I wasn't sure what I would do. He is of great love and growth, and I wouldn't be who I am today without His guidance, I think... even if sometimes it's a bit unorthodox. ;)

As I think of with Him, "Go through things, grow through things," and "there can be no flowers without the rain."

Em hotep, and welcome! What a life you seem to lead! Hethert is wonderful, though I have less experience with Nebthet- She is a very intriguing Name to me, though!

I hope you enjoy the Class, I found that it helped lead me from a bit of an Orthodoxy skeptic into... well who I am now. c: It brings a lot of insight.

Enjoy your pursuit of knowledge, friend!


[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Re: Newbie Questions Thread
« on: January 08, 2019, 11:50:01 am »
Em hotep, Nyssa! All very good questions, tbh. I feel like a majority of us have to pick up these nuances as one interacts more with the forums, but this will be a lot more clear. :D

1) A majority of the Egyptian usernames that you see here are given as Shemsu names- a name bestowed upon the individual taking the vows of Shemsuhood. I have seen a few folks join the forums with similar looking names, however, but it's usually a safe bet that whoever has a name of that type is, or was at one point, a Shemsu of the House.

2) This is a question I have been asking myself, actually, and just haven't delved into searching for the answer yet. I know that there is a large amount of folks and Names (Gods) that are part of our community that are big proponents for self care, such as Sekhmet, Yinepu, and Hethert. :)

3) Places where individuals are active may vary. I have seen members on Wordpress, Tumblr, Twitter, and other social sites. I'd try looking through tags or asking members if they are members of sites, if they are comfortable with sharing. Some may have links available in their signatures.

4) There is! We actually have an active Discord server, which you can join using this link:

5) For this one, I'm not a mod, but I think I saw mention that this was due to bandwidth issues from back in the day! You'd have to check in with a mod to confirm, of course. :D

I hope this helps, feel free to PM me or a mod if you would like to discuss anything further. Good luck!


Edit: Oops, saw Shediwi answered before I could submit! Sorry, sib. ;w;

Nekhtet, Guga! I have done the same this morning. I look forward to potentially being divined alongside you as a very positive member of the community. :)


[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: prayers for seth / Setesh?
« on: December 19, 2018, 05:43:59 am »
Em hotep!

I adore Set, so I took a bit of time to write a simple little prayer for you this morning. :)

Hail to you, Set, Lord of Thunder,
Teach me to speak above the chorus of the rain.
Hail you you, Set, Lord of the Red Land,
Teach me to walk through the desert sands instead of crawling on my knees, forever repenting.
Hail to you, Set, the Lord of the Winds,
May you remind me of the necessity of change.
Hail to you, Set, Lord of Life,
May you teach me the ways of living, and love, through mine.

If you would like to learn how to make prayers to Set, even simple ones are easy to make and use. Look at other prayers to inspire you! And looking at a God’s epithets night also help as well.

I hope this helps and that you enjoy this little prayer.


Edit: Also if you are able to obtain a copy, I’d recommend Hemet’s -AUS- Egyptian Prayerbook. It will be under the name Tamara L. Siuda if you are unfamilar. :) There are many prayers for many Names, and much more in there.
