Author Topic: I'd like to have the RPD done, but...  (Read 13148 times)

I have a question but had no idea where else to ask.  I did my RPD with the intention to do some translating work for the house as payment.  I was able to do some work, but then the project got put on hold, and from there I didn't connect with the person I needed to talk to to continue the project.  Life got in the way, basically.  I'm in the position to pay for my RPD now, so who do I contact to do so?

I would say contact both Hemet and the person with whom you were going to do the work.

$53.00, I thought it was over a hundred. Blame my mind for that three digit figure. $53.00 is what I can do, no doubt about that. Does she take money orders because I'm not comfortable with debit cards. Also, do you have to pay first before she'll do it or after?

Em hotep!

That would be part of the discussion one has with the Nisut, at the time one has become a Remetj, and has decided to undertake the RPD.

Payment for the RPD can be made in whatever method works for both.

For anyone interested in this faith: The RPD is just one element of the worship and fellowship with the community of faith here in the House of Netjer. The RPD will not make any particular gods love us more (note, all the gods love each of us profoundly), nor will it make us communicate with, or hear better, any particular gods (interaction and communication with the gods can be undertaken quite richly without ever undertaking the RPD).

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but I feel it's important.

The fee is not a gratuity towards Hemet (AUS!!!). The $53 goes towards necessary supplies for the extensive ritual that she performs: this includes the offerings.

Yeah, I read the fee goes towards her work and the offerings, which is fine with me.

Eep! Reading this thread has made me really excited for when I feel the time is right to undergo by own RPD :)

The RPD usually is done online. Those who have had their RPDs done in person are rare.
Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later that night you were lying looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself Why is it that the landscape is moving but the boat is still?

Wait a second, after reading about the RPD, I thought that the first RPD was free and didn't need to be payed for. Was I wrong?

The first RPD? I've never heard of anyone needing multiple RPDs; that would be unnecessary unless the system was so flawed to make it necessary, and then why do it at all if it's that flawed?

There have been cases of people requiring an addition, separate rite for those Beloveds that come later or wanted to wait until later to make themselves known, but those are fairly rare thus far and do have an additional and separate fee.

There is also a separate part of the RPD that rarely gets mentioned; the Akhu divination to receive any messages your Akhu wish to give to you. This divination can also be performed outside of the RPD for an additional, separate fee.

There is a cost for the Rite, which covers offerings which need to be made before it can happen. However, if the remetj has financial difficulties they can make arrangements with Rev. Siuda to defray the costs in other ways.

As to what Rawy said about extra beloved, yes this does happen that Someone does not get identified at the beginning or another Name comes up in the interim from the original divination and becomes a part of that more direct connection. It should also be noted that this is not a requirement or some kind of sign of superiority. It doesn't mean the God loves the remetj in question any more or less.
