Em hotep Larius!
I'm just learning myself, but isn't Tawret the Hippo Goddess, or am I completely on the wrong track? :confused:

Em Hotep Larius.

You may remember that Hapi is associated with the nile river, and that Tefunt is associated with moist air, and moisture in general. Both of those spirits are far more than those two associations, but that might be a start for more exploration into their being.  Sometimes, we may associate Nun (creative potential) with the primeval flood out of which the benben rose - one of the creation myths.

Some spirits are associated with animals that live in, on, or near water such as the hippo, crocodile, frog, and various waterbirds, and you might find it a good starting place to explore those various spirits with those associations as starting points.

A bit more information is here in the glossary http://www.kemet.org/glossary/

There also is a river goddess named Meret who is sometimes referred to as Hapi's wife.  She's lovely :)

Aset's tears in myth cause the rain of the Nile flood.  Nit and Mehet Weret (which can also be an aspect of Nit, Hethert and Aset) is associated with the primordial waters.

OK, thanks. Didn't realise there were so many.

I was just asking because I've been talking with one, I don't know her name and was curious to find out. She usually speaks to me when I'm in the shower or on occasion when I'm washing my hands. So I presume she has ties with water. She's very kind and supportive. But also gives me advice from time to time. Just recently she had asked me to cut out my constant swearing. I have depression and alot of built up anger (due to abuse) so it's harder said than done, but I am trying very hard to lose the habit.

Thanks again guys.

Perhaps try offering Her a cool glass of water and see if She'd tell you Her name?

Maybe Tayet, since you're usually cleaning yourself when she's talking with you?

I agree with Siwy. When you said shower and washing hands, my brains just screamed Tayet.

This speaks to purity as well, speaking of Tayet.

Em hotep Laurius!

When you started taking about depression and emotional issues, my first thoughts went to Serqet. She can definitely help you with that sort of thing and strip you of the pain. Plus she is associated with the water scorpion in Egypt.

Hope this helps.

Tayet? Being associated with water? I was under the impression that the Netjert Tayet was the goddess linked to weaving; as well as bandages and the binding of the corpse with 'fine linen'... seeing as her name is derived from the word for shroud. ?
