[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Bes Amulet/Artwork?
« Last post by Sedjfaiemitui on Today at 10:21:56 am »
Em hotep nefer, Tuaira!

I happen to have an "antiqued" bronze (Sopdu-)Bes/Heka statue I can pass along, although I need to finish making Him a new wood base. I'd be happy to PM you pictures after I get back from the hospital today.

On a related note, (in addition to Yinepu and Aset, already mentioned, Who are Divinities with "Big Heka" across the board) Set and Tutu are historically Gods to petition over nightmares. Set, because He is a Lord of Night and the God of nightmares and nocturnal visions (much in the same spirit that, say, Apollo would be petitioned against plague and pestilence in the Hellenic world, to use a better-known example); Tutu because He is the pacifying Son of various Eye Goddesses in Their wrathful aspect (Nit and Nekhbet in particular, but not only those Ladies).

"Bes," to further qualify (and you can ask Bestekeni for all kinds of material/greater elaboration on this; it's one of her specialties as an Egyptologist and iconographer), is less an individual God and more of a function/form of several Gods and a Modern Egyptological category Egyptians didn't quite use in the way we Moderns do. They're also not to be confused with what are called Sau-figures (which often have the dwarfish "Bes"-body but sometimes feature leonine, jackal, or antiquatedly-called "pygmy" heads, and on one unique headrest, Set-animal heads and crocodile heads. There are one or two articles with accompanying illustrations I can forward you concerning Sau-figures, if you're interested. These spirits do the same job 😉).

Likewise, because the God Shu appears on headrests more than just once, I think it's safe to say that Shu is a nocturnal protector of dreamers, too.

All that being said and in any event, Whomever the petitioner feels "closest" to, they can expect just as much help from that God/dess as from the aforementioned Divinities and class(es) of Spirit. 😙

I hope this helps!
Senebty,
Sedjfai

This is what I was able to find with a brief search:
https://www.ebay.com/i/254335202521
or
https://www.etsy.com/listing/622237422/bes-egyptian-god-of-good-fighting-evil

An alternative might be a sa protection amulet! Bezen has one available here from shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/product/A33TYHS6B/ancient-egyptian-sa-ldquo-protection-rdquo-amulet-version-1
You might also be able to request a Bes design, but you would have to speak to them directly to verify that they can do that! :)

Senebty,
Sesai

I don't know much about Bes, but I'm sure other people will be able to help you, but I do know that Nit, Yinepu, Nut and Aset are great names to deal with sleep and dream stuff

First of all, I would like to say that Netjer is present in everyone's life, because we were created by this Power. So you can be sure that Netjer and His Names hear you, even though there are apparently no answers. Communication with the Divine is subjective, and because we are human, we often don't understand it either. During this time that I adore the Gods, I realized the importance of worshiping them and feeling their presence in this world, much more than an extremely objective and well-structured response. Gods do not always speak to me and I often have the impression that I also have a certain deviation from perceiving this communication.

Netjer loves you!
You are not alone!
Feel embraced!

Please seek help from a mental health professional, call life enhancement lines if you need to, and seek support from the people around you, this includes our community.

May Netjer bless you! May Aset be able to cover you with his wings and protect you.

Even if you can't hear them, they can hear you.

My mother is having very unsettling dreams, they're not bad per se, but they are confusing and upsetting. I don't think she's getting very restful sleep. I was thinking of getting her a Bes Amulet or icon, something she can either wear or have in the room? Is that a good idea and is anyone in the house got a Bes-related item for sale or can make one?

I'm sorry I didn't see your post earlier...

You are not alone.
They hear you.
You are not unwanted.

Despite what appears to be the case, many people here in the temple do not get communication back from Netjer in any concrete way. Trust me, I know, I'm one of the silent many that don't. I've been here with the temple for almost 20 years, and I'm just starting, in the past few years, to occasionally get a hint of emotional connections, nothing verbal or visual (and the emotions I occassionally get seem to only be from one of my Parents, Noone else).

I know there are many others, because I have asked the "why me" question many time, in chats, on the forums, even in face to face meetings with other members and priests. Every time, the answer is that I'm not broken, I'm not wrong, I'm doing things correctly, it's just different for every person.

I am also, someone who struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts. Again, you are not alone. You may PM me any time you want to to discuss this privately, if you want. Again, I have been struggling with this for about 30 years, and it took me a long time to get where I am. I'm willing to help you (or anyone else reading this) on your journey with suicidal thoughts, but just like communicating with Netjer, it's long, and different for every individual.

*hugs*

I wish there was more I could do for you, but at the least remember, you are never alone. They are always with us. Afterall, They waited almost 2000 years for the temple to be reforged, They aren't giving up on us any time soon.

You are loved, you are wanted. Don't give up.

Noted and understood, I've removed it from my posts but can't do anything about the quoted posts.

Em hotep,

I posted the Kemet.org link which can only be accessed by members of the House. You can't get the link to the actual discord unless you are logged in (I thought about that before I posted it, and tested it in an incognito window to make sure you had to be logged in). So can I ask (with great and all-due respect) what the difference is?


~ Nesi

There is a policy of not placing members-only accessible links on the public side of the forum. Guests can't see what is in the members only side of netjer.org and kemet.org and it's not fair to them.
