I've been a little hesitant to respond to this thread because I have not had my RPD done, but there is one Name who I just can't help myself from calling "Mama". I'll probably stop calling her that if she does not appear as my parent, but I'd be floored if she didn't show up at all when that time comes.

It started with a vague feeling of someone around, and I followed the trail of breadcrumbs and found Het-Hert. There are many names that I work with, such as Sekhmet, Kephra, Aset, and so forth, but no matter what work I do, I feel like Het-Hert is always an underlying support. She's always around the corner with some new surprise, it seems. Even when I work outside of Netjer, as with Loki, there are times where I feel her eyes on me.

I do believe there was a moment in my childhood that contributes to this. I suddenly felt like I had a very important question to answer, and that I must choose one path among three things: love, knowledge, and power. As a child, I immediately disregarded power because of how it corrupts. I pondered on knowledge, but decided that if it meant being alone to pursue it, it wouldn't be all that great. So I chose love, even though it could absolutely destroy me. It was like something in the universe clicked and solidified, and then everything went back to normal. Looking back on this now, considering I was so young and the memory of that moment is so vivid, I do believe that something about that question was from an outside, probably divine source, and that it dictated parts of the events that occurred in my life after that.

It's been just over two years since I last posted in this thread, so I guess update time!

Things have changed, but also stayed the same.

I am incredibly close to Set. He is my Beloved, the first Netjeru that really put Himself in my life. He has taught me how to be myself again after so much hurt in my life. He is not a Set of inflicting chaos or destruction, or breaking things down, but of learning to build up again, to rise out of the chaos, and overcome obstacles. I have relearned to drive, learned to survive some horrible things, learned how tough I can be, and if I ever forget my own strength, I always have Him to lean back on and remember. At the same time, I also have been learning my limits, and that it is good to have them. Push them if I need to, yes, but also to have the strength and courage to say no and no more! To set my boundaries, and not let anyone take advantage of them anymore. He has been incredibly healing for me.

My Mothers, Sekhmet and Mafdet, I have also grown close to. I have a different but similar bond with Them.

I have a feeling that Sekhmet came into my life as another god for a while. She has indicated to me that She was there without me knowing, and has been very proud about how much I've been advocating for my own health this year -- battling chronic pain and mental illnesses. Under Her watchful eye and Set's gentle tutelage, I have grown so much. Sekhmet has taught me that Love and Compassion and Empathy are the greatest gifts I can give, to myself and to others. And that yes, sometimes those things come out very fiery, and the need to stand up for others and speak Ma'at. She for me comes as a Lady of Appropriate Action a lot (and Mafdet overlaps that), but also a Lady of Compassion and a Lady of Love.

Mafdet I adore dearly, but She is very, very quiet. Sometimes Her voice and sensations are drowned out by Sekhmet and Set, but She is always there if I reach for Her specifically. She understands the need for precise action as opposed to Sekhmet's broad way of approaching things. I am still working on getting to know Her, but I find that She's just keen to sit back in the shadows and watch things.

Wesir I've been getting closer too lately, too. He came into my life just over a year ago, and has stuck around. He has taught me that I can grow, sprout, reach for the sun. Let the dead leaves fall away and grow new ones. If Set has taught me to survive, Wesir has taught me to thrive. That I can be and do more even as I heal and grow. Sekhmet and Mafdet overlap, and Set and Wesir tend to compliment each other.

I've been slowly meeting and developing relationships with other Netjeru, but those are the closest to me.

I experienced something similar with Set, although I didn't perceive him as a god at the time I initially experienced him -- he was more of an image of strength, and endurance, and triumph in the face of unrelenting evil.  But in the past few months I had an experience of Set with that exact same image, and I recognized then that he'd come to me over a year before, in one of my darkest hours.  And I am very grateful to him for that.

Wesir, Khnum, Heru-ur, Het-Hert and Sobek.

I had my RPD in 2001. Since before I joined HoN it was and always has been Aset.  I've also always had some connection to NebtHet. Several years ago (circa 2006/7) She named me as Keeper of the Akhu in my family. Something I have taken very seriously ever since. I also feel very close to Heru-Wer and Bes and I have this connection thing going on. He will always show me BES license plates and then "send" songs to me via the radio or playlist I'm listening to. It's really cool.

Sekhmet has poked me recently and I have no idea why, but She's cool so I'm working on connecting to Her in a meaningful way. I added Her to my Shrine and She keeps turning to look the way that my Aset and NebtHet statues look.

The Ma'ati have come into my life very recently. This is definitely a work in progress and I'm eager to learn what They want of me and how They fit into my life.

Always Yinepu. Ever since I was a teen, He's been there, as the Guide. He's guided me here, as well, and I wonder if He will play a part in my RPD, or if He is going to step back a bit and have Other Netjer take over, so to speak. I'm waiting on my RPD date, so we'll see!

Sobek and Sutekh for sure. I've felt my connection with them for a while now. Sobek has always been the cool skater bro who would help me tackle my problems and Sutekh has been a father figure in my life.

My shrine contains statues of Bast, Sekhmet and Horus. I feel most connected with Sekhmet, but I love gardens and flowers,which seem best connected with Bast, also cats. Horus & falcons are also venerated. I was born on Wag Festival.

I feel closest to Aset and Horus, but have very good relations with Yinepu also, we seem to have a deep connection.

Me too, since the beginning. From as far back as I can remember, it has always been Him. I am now connected to Heru Sa Aset and Sekhmet-Hethert, Who are Beloveds...with Yinepu-Wepwawet as my Father(s). There are many additional connections, such as Heru wer, Heru Behdety, Set, Djehuty, Ptah, Ra, Kephera, Aset, Nebthet and Sed-Yinepu-Wepwawet,  but They are my main ones.

Consistently Wadjet, for a little over 12 years, regardless of Her form. I've also felt connected to Sekhmet, Hethert, before my RPD, those were the only Names I really was ever "connected" to.

Post-RPD I've got a strong connection with Hethert-Sekhmet in all Her forms, and my papa, Khonsu. I never really interacted with Khonsu before RPD, but I've always been someone who LOVES the moon c:

*Edit*
I'm caring for Ra and Nefertem this year, so I am getting acquainted with both of them.
I've also been touching on Heqat, Mafdet, and Serqet, as well as Set.

Many of us were close to particular Netjer loooong before finding the House, so no worries on that score. Post away! <3

Hi there. I'm pretty new to the forums and just completed the beginners class but I've had some experiences lately that keep drawing me to Yinepu. I've heard his name just ... At random. It comes to mind.

And last night I had really intense visions/memories/something while meditating (which I rarely get!) that felt connected to him. Couldn't sleep all night and I felt compelled to read the forums and all over the internet to learn about him and other Netjeru.

Still finding my way but it feels very significant (and unexpected) to me.

Before the Beginner's class, when I was guiding my own practice, I primarily worshipped Djehuty and Yinepu, and I'd often refer to Yinepu like a father :")

Being advised to not focus in too hard on any particular Netjeru while I'm still learning has been a really positive experience for me, though, since I was previously worried about not having either of them show up in my RPD. Now, even though I still feel that connection to them, I feel as though I'd be happy with any result when I eventually get to that point.

I still credit my reasoning for finally deciding to sign up for the beginner's class to the two of them, though- it definitely felt like they were pushing me toward KO.
