Bast not wanting to share shrine space?
« on: December 05, 2014, 09:00:45 am »
I know that certain Names don't like sharing at all and others don't like sharing with just anyone, but has anyone gotten the sense of Bast not wanting to share space? I'm trying to figure out if it just my adapted shrine "cabinet" is just too small for every one or if its Mom specifically.

A couple nights go the box fell over and dumped everything out.....thankfully only one statue broke and in a fixable way.

No. But she is cat like. It would make sense that sometimes she wouldn't share well.

My initial impression is that it may not be so much that She doesn't want to share shrine space in general, but that She wants a preferential spot being your Parent.

Taji,

That actually makes sense. When I had them on an open space Her statue was elevated. Which would explain why She seems unhappy since Her statue was on the same level as Sehkmet and Wepwawet.

I need to go rethink the shrine layout.

I've not had any issues with Her sharing.

I have a nice looking Ikea cabinet my boyfriend and I and working on adapting for a shrine cabinet. Bought it recently because my space was getting rather cramped. Since mom was ok sharing but I think Taji has a point on her wanting a better spot it should work.....i think I'm going to give her her own space ....

As someone who is dual Parented with Bast, I've never had this issue either. I can definitely feel that She's happier with the AGI statue than the resin one though, especially now She's bigger than Wepwawet! However, as She is your only Parent, I would give Her the 'best' spot in the shrine, or make sure you preference Her over your Beloveds.

As someone who has worked with Bast with most of my life, no she does not like to share shrine space (in my experience especially with Aset. Why? I'm not entirely sure, I just know that the few times I made the unfortunate mistake of doing so, it did not end well). The only other Name she seems to be happy to share with that I've tried is Yinepu but perhaps that's because He is also my Parent.

I've never had this issue, but like others, She has always had more space and bigger statues then anyone sharing with Her. I also did some work to check in before I blended shrine space to make sure She would be ok, but I also work with multiple pantheons.

I have never gotten this feeling from Her either..I am dual parented as well, so perhaps She is just used to sharing..

During Senut on The chewing of onions for Bast, She requested I have a seperate shrine space just for Her.  I have tryed since then to do that for her the best I can.

Maybe She doesn't mind sharing with fellow parents, but if she's a single parent, She expects to be solo on the senut shrine?  I am also double-parented, and I've never had the sense that She minds sharing with Djehuty.  I don't put anyone else up there, though.  :-)  Sekhmet, my beloved, has Her own shrine.

That's a great idea, Shemi - having a separate shrine for beloveds.  Currently I just have the one shrine for all three, but my mothers are on an elevated pedestal on my shrine, which is apparently acceptable.  A future goal will definitely be to have separate shrines, one for my mothers and one for my beloved, once I have the space to do it! :)
