I adore Ptah. He is the unofficial household god, since both my partner and I are heavily into crafting and making things, from art to music to woodworking to leatherworking to welding to... etc etc.

I love the image of Him as the deep dark water/sky. To me, He appears as antique gold - the color of late afternoon sunlight filtering into a workshop, dust motes in the air. He is calm and patient and just, always quietly smiling. I completely understand how He acts as a reservoir of tranquility for many of you.

Thank you all for sharing these stories! They warm my heart.

Em hotep Gezausenu *henu*

I experience Ptah through his Wife Sekhmet.  He is the steady, calming influence on Her rage.  He is the one who holds Her up and supports Her to do the necessary work that is distasteful and difficult.  He is Her foundation and refuge, the perfect husband.  In my mind I see Her leonine head resting peacefully on His shoulder with His arm wrapped around Her, blood dripping from Her claws, tears flowing down Her cheeks.  With Him, Sekhmet can be Herself in all Her violence and beauty.  He loves Her no matter what.

In my personal shrine Ptah's statue is always with Sekhmet's.  For a while I had His in a lineup with other gods, but I could feel He was unhappy unless He was right by His wife.  I know there is so much more to this wonderful Name.  It is my intent to continue to learn more about Him and deepen our relationship.
