Em hotep!
« on: August 05, 2021, 07:35:36 pm »
Em hotep to all! I discovered Kemetic Orthodoxy a year ago and signed up for the August Beginner's Class. I have been an eclectic pagan most of my life (prior to that I was a young Egyptology buff) but had experiences with Set and Bast during childhood. In the past I have fluctuated between Asatru and Kemetic paganism. I feel I've reached the point where being an independent practitioner is not longer viable. I've spent some time in a KO Facebook group and I'm getting a strong sense that KO is a good fit for me.

Set has been an initiatory force throughout my life. He's very kind and has a relatable sense of humor. I've considered Him to be a teacher and parent for most of my life. I find His storms comforting, like a brief lull from the chaos of our lives. Bast is very loving. She has comforted me during difficult times. I recently started working with Sekhmet as well. I find Her to be very relatable in Her capacity as a healer. I've often admired Aset, Djehuty and Yinepu but have only once been in a situation to call upon the latter.

Thank you for having me here! I'm very glad to be here and look forward to taking the class!

Thank you! I've found that the two practices overlap in interesting ways. My perception of Set isn't altogether different from that of Woden.

Set's been an "initiatory force" ever since I first encountered Him, encouraging me to a lot of growth!

May you find your explorations rewarding!

Em hotep, and welcome!

I too practice interfaith with Heathenry and Kemetic Orthodoxy. I have found that both paths work very well together and that the deities in both seem to communicate really well. :)

I wish you the very best in your journey in the House and let me know if you need anything. :)

Cheers,

Thank you everyone!

Nedjneb, I'm happy to find others like myself. I've noticed over the years that the greater my understanding gained through Asatru and runecasting, the more I came to understand and appreciate the Netjer and Kemetic cosmology. They seem to reinforce one another.
