Some people do, some don't.  Neither is right or wrong, there are just different ways of communicating with Netjer.

Awesome! Thanks! :D

I don't hear voices for the most part, but I do feel emotion in part with scenes from my life that convey the emotion or meaning of what the Names are intending to communicate with me. My Mother is also very fond of touch as well, which is felt by me as more of a presence of energy rather than an actual touch. It's the way the touch is presented though, in conjunction with visual imagery, that helps me understand what they're trying to communicate.

Others have different experiences though.

Em Hotep

I tend to hear voices in my head, sometimes out loud if they're really trying to get my attention.  I smell certain scents (like a particular incense I burn in shrine), perfumes.  I'll see images or certain animals will make their presence known.  Also like Maret mentioned, touch.  Ever had a canine climb on your bed while you're sleeping, walk all over you and you could feel it's weight on the bed and your body? Yeah, Yinepu is a real character.

Is the water used in the libations during the Senut, (to the Akhu, Wepwaret, Sebau and Ma'at), the same as a liquid offering, or does it differ - maybe because some of it is for the Akhu? I'm only asking because I have tried to give it to my cat and my ferret, and neither of them will touch it. (The ferret needs to drink quite frequently, and was VERY thirsty by the time I realised what was going on).

Hotep Jet and good morning.

The libation water is separate and distinct from any liquid offering :) I usually pour out just a tiny bit each time and then leave it to evaporate. And make my offerings separately at the appropriate time during senut.

OK, thankyou, Setjemes, that helps :). I'm so new to all this, that, even though it feels right to be here and that I'm "coming home", I seem to be making an awful lot of very silly mistakes! (My poor animals - they probably thought I was trying to poison them! But then, maybe it does go to show that the strength of my ritual intent was sufficient that the water was altered in some indefinable way?). Thankyou :).

Sorry - maybe "sincerity" would be a better word than "intent". I didn't preview my post, and am very tired - husband is on nights, which is quite disruptive to sleep!

I use the libation water to water my plants. They don't seem to mind. :grin:

I actually have a large white bowl in the shrine room specifically for mah felines, and I empty the libation bowls from my shrines (after enough time has elapsed) into the feline bowl and the cats go WILD over it.... it's the only feline water bowl that is ever habitually emptied of water.  ;)  

Felines appreciate the blessings as much as anyone else, I suppose.

Yesterday I planned to make fairy cakes, to offer to Ma'at and Bast, and had some new tea light candles to use, and play some music - and thank them for the help they have given me recently.

On my way to buy the ingredients I felt very excited, and as I sense things physically, my head got very warm as if to say " Hurry up cant wait :D "
So, I made these fairy cakes, saying - feel free to add your own flavour to them.. only, I didnt make them very well, they were too eggy :(  so, i presented them anyway and just ate the tops which were nice and crunchy, and made a nice chocolatey drink to make up for the failed fairy cakes lol

They were keen on the idea of cooking together though :) even if it went abit wrong.

As for hearing / sensing netjer - I feel things physically, If i am reading or hearing something useful to my growth, my third eye will tingle
If my goddesses are about - I will Know they are in the room with me - for example maybe healing, or partaking in a spell im doing.
Otherwise, It is usually warm sensations just by my scalp, and it spreads and gets warmer according to how much they are interacting with me.
If they want my attention quickly - they give me a little headache!  ( like - buy that figure for me! )

I have heard Bast -I asked her to visit me, and she waited until I was asleep, and started purring and there was a hot patch on my bed :)
The first time i made an offering ,she let me know she was pleased by shaking bells ( or sistrum) as a sign

Ma'at -I dont beleive i have heard her, but she leaves me feathers of various colours, and likes to mess with the wind if i'm not getting something shes trying to tell me ( like blowing my door shut with a huge gust of wind outta no where )

I feel happy / excited when they like what im doing,I think if theyr not so keen - i dont recieve any feelings, so i move on to some thing else.

Blissi, I love the little story of your offerings. ^_^  I've also found that it makes Bast especially happy when I cook things for Her. In fact, just the other day I was a little short of suitable offerings, so I offered Her some leftover Chinese food, and She let me know that She would have preferred it if I'd heated it up--not because the cold food was gross or anything, but because by doing that little bit of extra preparation work, it would put that extra bit of myself into it.

(Of course, She appreciates store-bought/readymade food too. ^_^ The cooking/preparation is a bonus.)

Senebty,

Hehe, I have only started doing offerings this year, so each time is different and new.

Bast really seemed to love cherrys? but this may be because they are my favourite fruit and they were so Tastteey.

The cooking really seemed to make them both happy, i cant beleive something as simple to cook as fairy cakes I failed at.
I think I need to take it as a hint to do more cooking >.<

Is there any taboo food for the netjer?
I read that fish was some were, but not all on line sources at that reputable.

I loved the fairy cakes idea, Blissi :).

I tend to feel Ma'at as a very subtle (winged?!) female presence standing behind me when I'm doing Senut. I suffer from panic attacks, but since starting Senut, I have felt a lot calmer and more grounded. (Other people have actually noticed this, too, as I seem to get flustered a lot less!).

That depends on the Netjer and your relationship with them.  I don't think there is a blanket taboo on any food.
