    Re: Kemetic religion and offerings

    It's true. Offerings are presented to the gods then are ceremonially reverted back to the giver, and at that point they should be consumed. In ancient Egypt offerings were first presented to the...

    Re: Singing

    I've only sung in ritual once, when things were really bleak. There's a song I picked up somewhere which I only sing when I'm sad and one day I sang it in shrine. Things have gotten better since...

    Re: Religious items behaving badly

    LOL, a great big statue it can fire the fist off of and punch me in the face? No thank you! Wrong way to ask. Anyway, Khonsu's more of a moon god. :)



    I love when stuff like that happens! ...
  5. Re: Do you ever keep religious items from your previous religion?

    It's just a thought, but those rosaries would be the perfect addition to an ancestor shrine. As your grandmother was Catholic, and doubtless other ancestors were Catholic as well, they might make...

    Kemetic religion and offerings

    Offerings play a prominent role in Kemetic religion, and for many people they can be a very stressful part of getting to know the gods. Like a date with someone you deeply respect, but don't know...

    Religious items behaving badly

    Have you ever had an experience with shrine equipment, statues, or other religious paraphernalia acting oddly? What happened? How did you react? Did you ever figure out what it was? I've seen a...

    Sticky: Re: Pagan Altars :)

    One thing I've learned is that simpler altars are better. Right now, my altar has way too much stuff on it and it gathers dust. All the items on the altar make it difficult to clean, which means...

    Re: Are your beliefs "reasonable"?

    I had a professor in a college religion class who said that 97% of all religious people would be certifiably insane if you asked someone outside of their belief system to make the call, so I can...

    Re: Kemetic branches today

    I agree with David McCann. You'll see "Egyptian Festival Calendars" in modern use and they're mostly combinations of many different festival calendars from many different temples. There are so many...

    Nope, you don't have to be part of an organized Kemetic group in order to be Kemetic or to celebrate the holidays. But you are part of a community. :) The core principle of Kemetic religion is, I...
  16. Re: Contacting/Interacting With/ Talking to the Gods?

    There are many Therians who identify with prey animals. I'm not sure how much you've experienced of that community but I also spent some time looking into therianthropy. In the end, I decided that...

    Re: Bad people in the Duat

    I like the idea of Ammit eating the bau of transgressors. It seems like a more humane and rational approach to the problem of what to do with people who don't measure up to Ma'at's feather. I don't...

    Re: Kemetic Orthodoxy

    Kemetic Orthodoxy is a bit of a controversial subject in the Kemetic community and has been for a long time. In my opinion, this is due to three main reasons:
