Hello
« on: July 19, 2012, 10:36:20 am »
Hello, my name is Khukua. This means "I am glorious". I chose it out of a sense of if you keep saying you can, you will.

I am 20, but I've studied the Kemetic religion since I was 8 or 9. Something about it always fascinated me, called to me, made me feel whole. Around the age of 11 or so, I was placing the Christian god as the last in a long name of gods I prayed to. When I turned 13, my life changed radically, and so the only gods I would recognize where the neteru.

Shortly before I turned 18, I turned to practicing magic in various forms. I took to working with a few of the neteru in unconventional  methods. I fell down in what I was doing, so I thought I would return to my roots.

To be fully honest, I have no clue what to do here. If you could give me some pointers, that would be lovely.

Well, reading around the forums is a really good start. There's going to be a new beginner's class starting at the beginning of September that I think would help...I've been Kemetic for around 8 or so years, and I'm still learning quite a bit from the class. Here's some info on it: http://www.kemet.org/apply.html

Other than that, I also like reading other members' blogs (the links can usually be found on certain members' signatures). I hope that helps some!

Em hotep and welcome, Khukua!

As to what to do here... read and post, read and post. There's more to the boards that is "members-only," but I think we have a good wealth of information on the public boards too. If you decide you're interested in learning more in-depth about Kemetic Orthodox practice, sign up for the beginners' class! Our website (kemet.org) is (finally) being revamped, aiming for an August launch date.

If you have not seen KIN, the Kemetic Interfaith Network it is also a great resource. Welcome again! Good to meet you and senebty. :)

Em hotep Khukua. :)

I highly recommend the Beginner's Course. I loved it and learnt so much, about myself and not only Kemeticism. As others have said, read all you can and ask away. No question is ever considered silly.
