Hello ^^
« on: November 22, 2011, 02:08:16 am »
Um....Hello there :) I kinda found this place by a string of Google clicks , a few chances, and a feeling. Um....My story is kinda long and I don't know if this is the place to put it so I'll just kinda...say hi. I 'Think' one of my deities is Bast, She's been calling to me strongly for a while and while looking for a decent Ankh necklace or Bast jewelery I actually found a link to this place. So um....yeah hi ^^; sorry if I ramble or anything but feel free to contact me or whatever. I think I've actually found a path to follow religiously, Ive been wandering after realizing Christianity wasn't the only religion 4-5 years ago and decided I would be Wiccan...kinda. I didn't really feel general Wicca fit me and while this or that looked nice my statue of bast that found me kind of made me think that my religion should be around her. I'd love to talk to clergy or someone who can talk to me about the religion, Bast, or can help me find my "parent deities" I cant remember what they're called but I read over everything on Kemet.org and I've been waiting in eager anticipation to get on the boards. But this post is super long now so um....want to know more or wanna talk just contact me!

Welcome to the House of Netjer.  I hope you enjoy your stay here.  We do a beginner's class (free), that may help you understand what we're all about, but I'll let someone more knowledgeable about that topic tell you what you need to do, it's been a while since I did it.

I can't help you much with Bast, as my Parent God is Yinepu (Anubis), and I haven't had a lot to do with her (other than when I was pregnant with my son), but I am sure one of her children will come and talk to you about her.

Your intro didn't seem too long. Welcome Asykon!

If you look around the forum, many of the members list their parents and beloveds in their signatures. Many of them also have links to their blogs, so you can see what the Bast 'kids' have to say. :) Beyond that, here are a couple Bast links that come to mind:

Funny you should say that! In some of the times she's "talked" to me she's kinda said she's my mother, I don't know if that's weird or anything, and I'd like to get some one on one talking with someone before I join your class if possible :).From what I've read so far this sounds like what I want in life :) and I think I'd even go for Shemsu. But I'd like to talk things over with someone either over the phone, email, or IMs, and then take the class and see if I'm a fit for such a wonderful religion :)

Welcome to the forum Asykon! I'm currently doing the beginner's course, and it's wonderful.  :) You will always get answers and help here on the forum, just ask away. It's a lovely community, and I found quickly that no question is ever deemed silly. Netjer has a way of bringing us to Kemet, and brining us home. :)

Senebty,
Linda.

Em hotep, Asykon and welcome aboard! :)

I'm also on the Beginners course and can heartily recommend it! This is a very friendly community and, as Linda said, no question is too 'trivial'.

Enjoy!

Welcome! You and I are in much the same boat. We are both new here to Kemetic Orthodoxy and the forums. Likely, we'll be in the same beginners class. I haven't finished my application yet, but I hope to soon.

Do you know when the next beginner's class is likely to start?

Il-wy em hotep, Asykon!

I once tried to follow Bast and Christ. Then I tried to create a Bast-centric Wiccan tradition. Then I came here! Though Bast is no longer my primary goddess, She is still very dear to me. She tends to bring a lot of folks to KO, so I'm glad to hear She has brought you!

The House of Netjer and Kemetic Interfaith Network forums are wonderful resources. like Helms, I suggest you check out blogs and devotional sites run by our fellow Kemetics. if you ever want to discuss something, please post in a thread, or PM someone, or create a new thread! We're all glad to talk to you about our gods. I personally could talk about this faith, this community, and these gods ALL DAY!

Oh man, the waiting is crazy. I had to wait two years, as I found the house when I was still in high school, and my mother would not be willing to sign a waiver for me. There is a LOT of waiting involved in KO, at least there has been for me. I think it's the way Netjer is teaching me to become patient!

Hotep, Steve! It looks like the main KO site hasn't been updated (shocker! [/sarcasm]) due to the renovation in progress. Since the current class started late, my guess is the next will start in February. However, that more time for you both to browse the forums and get to know folks!

Wonderful to meet you!
