Bast, actually.  Obviously I also feel a connection to Wesir and Serqet.  Lately there seems like something might be forming on another front, although I can't put a name to the feeling.  I want to say Ma'ahes, but that might just be because my Shen (a necklace with a Netjeri/spirit attached to it, to oversimplify things) is a Ma'ahes Shen.

I feel closest to my Mothers Hethert-Sekhmet and Bast.  I'm slowly learning to grow closer to Amunet (She loves to be with me as I create my jewelry or cross-stitchings, the more detailed and labor-intensive, the better!)

I feel closest to my Father, Set, but since my RPD I have been growing closer to my other Father, Amun-Ra.

Shockingly, I'm sure, I'll have to say I am most connected with my Father, Sokar.

Min & I have become much more closely connected in the last couple of years, and I have walked with Nefertem for years & years.  I am still trying to develop a closer relationship with Wepwawet, but He is a serious puzzle to me, and we remain fairly distant.

Outside of my RPD line-up, I've a quite close relationship with Heqet and am working on building a connection with Nekhbet & Heka.

I'm also indebted to Wesir.

I would have to say the name I feel closest to right now is Bast-Mut. I have had previous strong connections with Bast and Yinepu. Other Names that I've been curious about/interested in lately include Yinepu-Wepwawet, Serqet, Hethert-Sekhmet, Heru-Wer, and Nebthet.

Excellent choice.  ;)  How did you come to realize that She was Bast-Mut and not Bast?  (I actually did the same during my beginners course and am always curious to hear how it happens for others)  :)

Hotep Taji! It was a number of things, actually. I first started having impressions of "Bast" over a year ago, and I couldn't really put my foot on it.  I wasn't as familiar with the idea of syncretization as I am today- the image I got was of a domestic feline of sorts, so naturally I assumed Bast.

I never got her as being very RAWRRR in your face, it was more like, "I have claws. I CAN use them - but only when necessary. I like to keep things classy." ;P She used to help me out a lot when I would go to the gym, giving me a swift kick-in-the-rear during kickboxing class when I thought I didn't have any energy left. That's the only time she ever got really firm with me- when she was trying to motivate me to achieve something, to see me succeed.

Another thing early on that I didn't realize was that whenever I would meditate and see her in my mind, she was almost always enthroned. I just kind of overlooked it- it never occurred to me that the throne had any real significance, even though it basically screamed 'royalty', i.e - Queen ;P She always presented herself as classy, regal, yet down to Earth at the same time. A warm, loving mother - but also not afraid to show off her claws a bit if you need a wake up call. ;P

It was really only recently that I realized these connections. I started looking into syncretization more, and Bast-Mut just fit better with what I was experiencing. Another possibly unrelated thing- I was looking at Merimask's Etsy shop the other day- they have done some amazing black, blue, and gold masks of Bast and Yinepu in the past, so I keep an eye on them. I had seen their Bast masks before and thought they were stunning, but   this mask hit me like a ton of bricks. It's a Bast mask, but ENTIRELY painted gold. I don't even LIKE gold that much, usually I prefer silver- but this one started screaming at me. If I had the funds, I would have snatched it up in a second just to get my brain to shut up. :P Gold seems to say "royalty" a lot more clearly to me than the regular black masks they normally do... who knows. Again, these are just the little things I noticed. :)

...Did I mention I'm a Chai tea fanatic? :D

That all makes sense.  And chai tea = divine nectar.  ;)

I doubt I could have put my experience into words as well as you did.  But basically I noticed I wan't getting Her as a domestic cat anymore.  She was coming to me as a big cat, a mountain lion actually.  And She had an older, more reserved, more regal feel.  And then I once saw Her in my mind's eye wearing the double crown.  :)  

It's cool to have another Pennsylvanian around by the way.  I grew up outside of Philly, but I'm on the other end of the state these days.

Here I go.

Well Wesir definately. Other names would include Nut, Sokar, Yinepu, Bes, Sekhmet, Ra, Heru, Serqet, and Djehuty.

Djehuty is with me whenever I drive, strangely enough. Always sitting in the passenger seat, smiling. Other than that not really anyOne else, my Mother has been a bit elusive. And Amun's just happy to get His offerings in Senut.

Outside of RPD: A bit of Heru-wer, a wee bit of Bes, maybe because of my shen.

After my Mother, I feel most connected to Bast. She's always been there for me. Other then that, recently I've had Set and Yinepu drop by.
