Em hotep


You have my prayers.  That sure is a lot to go through, I see some of Wesir's endurance already in you. :) 

Senebty!

Em hotep, my sibling in Sekhmet! It's good to see you again. I definitely feel where you are coming from in terms of fear of death. It's been a struggle for me as well, recently. For me, getting to know the gods connected with death has helped tremendously. Nebthet is now one of my Beloveds, and I feel more connected with Yinepu and Wesir. I still struggle with fear, but I am learning to manage it with the help of these gods.

Somewhere on the private forums there is a discussion about fear of death. I've found reading through others' experiences with the same fear to be strangely comforting.

Em Hotep everyone! (Henu)

I am so overwhelmed with positive emotions by your responses to my post, and I want to thank you so much for your prayers and support.

I'm very fortunate to be a part of this faith, fellowship and community, and I feel strengthened by your words.

I would love to chat or PM, and I will definitely answer as soon as I am able.

I've been partially disconnected from the spiritual for far too long, and I hope that I will have a chance to become more firmly anchored in it.

It is my dream to become a Shemsu Ankh one day, and that dream has been with me since I became a member of the faith.

I do need to find more calm and quiet within me, and a surer footing than I have now, because I feel that becoming a Shemsu Ankh is to take on more responsibility, and I wouldn't want to take that step before I am ready.

I love you all!
Senebty

I haven't met you before, but am very glad you're here.

I have had similar issues with family of origin, as well as lifelong depression. I know how draining it is, how soul sucking and generally lousy it is. I do not communicate with a fair amount of living relatives (thank Nejter for the Akhu, we have a better beginning relationship) over longstanding differences that couldn't be resolved. It is hard to cut off communication, but in the long run it is far more corrosive to allow it to continue if there is abuse involved.

Good on you for being so very frank with us. That takes a LOT of courage.

I just wanted to add to the support given here and I sincerely wish you all the best.  This is such a wonderful community from what I have seen already and I truly feel that everyone here and your gods (what a line-up to support you when you need to fall back on them!) are here for you.  It's hard to offer words for the kind of pain and trauma you've dealt with but hopefully hand-in-hand we can each give you something you need.

Many blessings <3

Em hotep Khentesh,

I'm so glad to see that you are back.  This community is a caring loving one and we will give you all the support we can.  I'm keeping you in my prayers and asking that Sekhmet watch over you and keep you safe.

May she heal your anxiety and help you continue to get better on all fronts.  May Netjer watch over you always.  I will keep you on my prayer list until things get better for you.

Many prayers for your well being! I don't know you, but I'm glad you are back. The gods are always with us through all times, good and bad.
If you are able and have access to it, therapy can really help with dealing with those fears. A mixture of years of childhood therapy and teachings from Yinepu have helped me learn to not be stifled by a fear of dying.
I pray that your Mother and Beloveds bring you comfort and you find refuge in this community. Take care of yourself and welcome back!
