I'd say it's very likely you're dealing with Anup. Gentle-hearted, somber, and compassionate are all words which are very descriptive of him. Not that Wepwawet can't also be these things, but not in the same way as what you're describing. I'm not getting the Wepwawet vibe.

Just to make things more complicated, there's also Khentyamentiu to consider!

In my experience, whichever side of Him you got, He'll let you know when the time is right.

My Yinepu is often bouncy and playful.  Compassionate, yes.  But I don't think of Him as somber.  He can be when it suits His purpose, but don't discount this experience as have been with Yinepu just because He wasn't somber.

Hmmm. Thanks so much for your wonderful feedback, everyone! It's given me much to ponder, and has me quite excited, truth told, for when the right time comes to know Who He is. :) I've known Yinepu since I was a teenager (so, what, ten, eleven years?) but I find myself thoroughly eager to realize, at least in this instance, it might have been Wepwawet. Perhaps Wepwawet all along, for all I know? (Silly ignorant teenaged me didn't know about Wepwawet at the time, haha.) I look forward to getting to know Him more.

Anyway, I really appreciate y'all chiming in and sharing knowledge and experiences with me!

Senebty and shalom,

Hotep,

I see Yinepu-Wepwawet as very much the same God. Just different attitudes. Sort of like the laid back home side and the more focused at work side.  Like a soldier or a cop. They're never really off duty you know?

Anyway. I've always seen Dad as the bridge to the other side and all us jackal kids live on that bridge.  And it's not quite one world or the other. But we get it. :)

What does it mean that he is solar? He is the sun?

Hail His-Two-Eyes-Of-Fire, coming from Sauty (Lycopolis), I do not steal anything belonging to Netjer.

Why two eyes of fire?

I have so much readin to do.

My personal opinion on this: He's not so much a "sun god" like Ra (though there is a Wepwawet-Ra syncretism), as it is an association with zep tepi (the mythic First time) and new beginnings, symbolized by the dawning of a new day.

These Netjer in a way simbolise what is happening in your own lives? I don't get it completely. You read he is the one that opens the doorway to the final judgement, anubis will escort you there, yet he brings change by opening ways in your life? Two different concepts to me.
Isnt he like the guard of that way? You cannot enter unless you are dead.

Think of him more as a guide rather than an escort.  Yinepu tends to guide people to Kemet and stands by you when you need strength.

Okay. As you say. Im still reading a lot and not clear on many things.

I still dont understand how you communicate with the gods. It sounds like most of you invite them over for tea and have a quick chat about your problems. They then make changes to your reality (your life) after a chat, and mostly just because they want to challenge (mess with) you and not because you asked them to.

That is something of an oversimplification. Many of us spend years building relationships and agreements with the gods. We do this by making offerings and giving praise to them. They are typically seen as teacher or parent, who may present us with challenges or tasks to teach us. We may speak casually about these interactions, but the spirit and setting of our prayers is often more serious than our conversations about them. We pray to the gods and make offerings, and the gods intervene if they see fit - or if they are able.

To jump back on topic about Wepwawet:

When we say Wepwawet is solar, we mean he is more associated with the sun than the moon.

Two-Eyes-of-Fire is an epithet (a descriptive title from ancient times), and I admit I don't know what it truly means.

Wepwawet is unique in that he has historically been shown in similar roles for the living and the dead - he opens the path for the dead and for the living. For the dead, he guides them to the afterlife; for the living, he helps us find our way.

Sobeq hit the nail on the head.  Relationships with the Netjeru comes with time.  Many of us have been at this for years, this doesn't happen overnight.  As for having tea that happens for me during Senut I offer tea and we share the tea.  While they challenge us to research (I get that a lot), look deeper into ourselves or to look at some from a different angle it's not to "mess" with us for their own amusement but to get us to the next level.

I know it's hard to get your head around something strange and new, gods knows it took me a long time and there are times where I still think this is all in my head and that Mother and my Beloveds aren't doing the talking but myself.  It may seem like it's easy when you're just coming into the house but really it's not.

I didn't mean to offend, just trying to make sense of some things. Like whether the god I met is Wepwawet.

Oh man this phrase is so epic: Hail His-Two-Eyes-Of-Fire, coming from Sauty (Lycopolis), I do not steal anything belonging to Netjer. When I read it, I got really excited as this points to the god I saw. So I went to look up Sauty and read a lot of stuff and ended with Wepwawet. No I didn't see eyes of fire but...

If any of you ever saw him, or dreamed of him, pls PM me and tell me what you saw.
