Igniting the flame
« on: November 25, 2020, 09:10:12 pm »
Hello everyone! I have been browsing the boards for a while and I decided to join.

Some background on me:
I am 34, mixed with Black and Filipino, employed, and living with mental illness. The latter makes having a spiritual path very difficult, especially since the voices in my head use this as an opportunity to manipulate and torment me. Naturally, I was mistrustful when I started hearing Sekhmet's voice again. But my daily devotionals are improving communication and strengthening my connection to Her in the process. It is just challenging because I am learning and developing rituals at the same time! I get inspiration every day and I feel like I need to do something with it.

I mainly worship Sekhmet as a goddess of fire, destruction, and blood. I want to explore Her warrior and healer aspects in the future. I also feel a connection to Renenutet, Nut, and Thoth.

That is it about me for now, any suggestions and advice are very welcome. :)

Em hotep, Nesertem!

Welcome to the House of Netjer! I'm really glad that you find a good voice between the ones that torment you. Sekhmet is the goddess of this year, the Great Flame. She is a great Healer that I hope will help you with your journey.
I know little about Renenutet, I know She was once syncretized with Serqet, another great healer. If you ever want to have a talk on Nut, I'm always open, She is my first Beloved and I care so much for Her.

Senebty and welcome,
Hepetwi <3

Hello Asethepetwi!
Thank you for responding. I definitely want to connect with Sekhmet’s healer aspect. Her fire aspect is just so prominent in my worship of her. I didn’t know there was a connection between Renenutet and Serqet, it makes me want to learn even more about Serqet. I’m just fascinated by Nut’s depiction in art, she’s so beautiful. I have this memory of going outside one night and the sky was cerulean blue and the stars were sparkling. I remember feeling uncomfortable and quickly going back inside. I don’t know if this memory is connected to her or not and I don’t have visual hallucinations (thank goodness). It happened years ago and I just remembered it.

Interesting that you've broke your silence in this year. Like Asethepetwi said, we currently have Sekhmet-Nesret specifically as our deity of the year. The oracle about that, in case you haven't seen/read it: http://www.nisut.org/2020/08/aset-oracle-year-28.html

I am also drawn to Sekhmet, and deal with mental illness, both in the long term. I hope you consider the beginner's class, as you learn a lot and honestly, it's a great experience

My main piece of advice to anyone who comes here is just to keep an open mind, and to share or contribute however you feel able or inspired, because a community is only bettered by the sharing of knowledge and experiences from a wide variety of people :)
