42 Negative Confessions
« on: December 08, 2018, 03:41:45 am »
Welcome to my first thread of many!

Now, being the history knowledge vacuum that I am, I know about the famed 42 negative confessions. I have seen people in our modern era take these aspects and "modernize" them into "affirmations". Is that something that Kemetic Orthodoxy members do? I'd like to use something like this in a meditation, and so if someone could provide me with information about this, I would greatly appreciate it.  ;D

Em hotep, B!

That is something that some members do, but isn't canon for everyone in KO. However, several years ago there was a discussion going on a thread about the 42 purifications and how we interpret it. You can find that thread here :) The discussion still continues periodically

Thank you! I will be sure to read that and check it out.

Also, just to be sure, I didn’t ask or mention something I shouldn’t have did I?

You didn't. We have members only chats as well as a members only side on this forum, and since guests cannot access them it isn't fair to reference something they cannot see.

I was the one that goofed with a reference to a chat that is in the members only section. My apologies for causing confusion.

I have been drawn to the Negative Confessions for a long time, and find them to be well worth the time in contemplation. Even after a length of time, they still reveal new insights.

Oh! Thank you for clarifying. The thread that was mentioned has been very insightful. I’m wondering if perhaps there is a document or book that has them in it as well? I’ve started listing them myself but it would be nice to have a book too. Is there a part of the temple here that has helpful documents as well?

Thank you!

Em Hotep,

I like to use the 42 confessions as a purification method to me: I say them as a prayer whenever I need to purify myself from this things if I have done them and to keep them away from me (from me doing it or from people around me doing it)

That sounds similar to what I would like to do. I made some prayer beads with 42 big beads on them. I was thinking of studying each one individually, once or twice a week. Thank you for sharing!

That sounds like a great idea. If you'd ever care to, I'd like to see pictures of your beads.

Because some people access the forums with limited bandwidth, it is best to post links to the photos on a hosting site.  I've used photobucket and flickr myself.
