strange request ?
« on: February 17, 2015, 05:33:50 pm »
Em Hotep.

During my meditation. Anpu came forth and he showed me a bowl of white rice. I got the feeling he wants me to offer him some. I know it's somewhat common for Netjeru to be like their animal representatives. Do jackals/dogs eat rice? And have you had any strange or unexpected requests for offerings?

Hahaha, oh god, my great aunt would always make this homemade dogfood out of rice and ground beef for her shih-zhus!  The rice supposedly settled their stomachs and made the food easier to digest, or so she swore.  Maybe he's got heartburn? xD

Personally I never saw any connection between the dietary preferences of a Netjer and the animal form they can take.
The idea of offering Hethert grass because she can take a cow form would cross my mind as little as offering dog food to Yinepu or mice to Bast because she can take a cat form.

Em Hotep,

Fair enough, think this warrants more research thank you Brea. ;D

I know Netjeru, either taken or given the animal forms as it is close to their role or behaviour and not necessarily animal-minded  but from my experience with Bast, She has asked me for items from catnip to safety pins. I was just wondering if anyone got what they believed to be odd requests

I remember Ra asking me for the golden (vanilla) Oreos. Thought it was a little odd, but they do sort of look like the sun to me! And they are quite tasty.

I use rice as a base iny dogs food when make 'special dinner' for my dogs and rats. I have not had any strange requests yet but I am fairly new to the religion. So far milk and water and cereal has been accepted by Sekhmet and Ptah.
And so the beginning has come to an end as it was found in writing.

This is actually fascinating to me because I had a similar request for white rice as an offering recently! It didn't come from any specific Name, though. But still, it's neat.

On the subject of dog food, with all of the recalls, there is a lot to be said for alternative feeding plans - we feed ours raw food, it is actually better for them if you can stomach the process of it, which is why it isn't for everyone.  But, specifically related to the rice, actually, vets will recommend chicken and rice or beef and rice when a dog is sick, because it's easier to digest than dog food - which to me, is kind of a warning sign against dog food, but that's just me.

As to Anpu asking for rice..yeah, I'd say that's possible!  After all..who wouldn't want a big bowl of rice? :D  I've never had the experience of special requests, but perhaps that will happen later.  My mothers just seem to like it when I show up. ;)
