I now have a shrine table (elder sister found it on side of road in our neighborhood with other items listed for free)

Im very tickled but I still need a Sekhmet-Mut statue to complete my lineup

While visiting my shrine early this evening, I noticed the way the sun was kissing Sekhmet's statue.  I think She didn't mind when I paused my meditation to grab the camera:

The red ribbon is from regnal year 25.....
(I might add a white ribbon to it....)

That is so beautiful, Senuwierneheh! I'm so amazed by everyone's shrines. This is how mine looks right now:

It's on my computer desk so I can always see it. Sekhmet's statue is in the middle, Set's statue is on the left, Thoth’s statue is on the right, Nut's statue is on the far left, and Bastet's box is on the far right. The flame sculptures represent Sekhmet's fire aspect. I'm going to purchase an end table for devotionals/spells and a glass tower to display more statues. I want another Nut statue and one that represents her and Geb. I only feel this fluidity with her statues at the moment. I also want to include artwork on the wall above my shrine.

I simply meditate and speak directly to the gods for now. I want to incorporate offerings soon and write more formal prayers in the future. I’m not poetic by any means though!

I was so terrified of putting the statues up at first because my family members would not approve. But I loved Sekhmet's statue so much I couldn't bear to keep it hidden in the closet. It was as if she wanted to be out. So far no one has asked about the statues and I hope it stays that way. I'm going for an Egyptian theme if anyone asks. :P

very pretty. the way you describe the fiery side of Sekhmet reminds me of Sekhmet-as-Nesret, the Great Flame.

Thank you so much, Rev. Ma'atnofret! :) I primarily worship Sekhmet in that aspect as a fire goddess of destruction.

My Senut shrine

My shrine is finally at the point where I'm happy to share it.

The two small boxes are low-smoke frankincense and sandalwood Japanese incense, and the gold-and-white feather is an incense holder. The white lotus is a candle holder, and I use locally made beeswax tealights or votives. The off-white tray is a handmade clay sushi dish from Thailand, and I use it to present my offerings. The four white tea cups and matching tea pot are for cool water during the Senut.

On top of the puja table (made without dedication to the Hindu pantheon) are my AGI statues for my mother Aset, and my beloveds Tefnut and Heru. Though the AGI for Tefnut is a Sekhmet icon, it radiates Her energy. All three statues were specifically requested by the Names that they're being used to represent. Finally, the gold-painted wood carving at Aset's feet is my Shemsu name in hieroglyphs, a wonderful and unexpected Moomas present from Sesaiaset. ♥

I really love your altar, it radiates peace and serenity. I just get this feeling of something very holy and ancient. The mixture of white and gold was such a good choice. Thank you for sharing.
