Your plans with Kemetism

Does anyone here have any plans for the future that imvolve Kemetism? I am curious whether you want to adopt new practices or worship new gods, or just vontinue with the tradition.

Hi there.

I’d like to get to know local people interested in Ancient Egyptian paganism in my local area. Will see how that goes!

Apart from that, I’m looking into the different types of witchcraft and magic. Partly to see if any practices/knowledge will enhance my own Kemetic path and partly to be more social.

I want to continue with my Kemetic reconstructionist path and I might look at ancient Egyptian rituals in more detail. There are some parts of it that I haven’t been so into, but I think gaining more understanding will be beneficial.

Looking to purchase more books about Ancient Egypt.

Deities: Djehuty and Seshat as always! Also been a bit more connected to Bastet and Hatshepsut lately.

I’d like to buy some new Oracle cards when I can.I’ve been using Moonology cards more frequently lately.

I really like the look of these:

Curiously timed question.

To be perfectly honest I have no idea right now. In 2017 I withdrew from the general pagan community to focus on my Kemetic practice (and in the process setup this site). Things went deep and then not. I’m on the upward slope right now which is currently taking me to strange an unexpected places almost on a daily basis.

I feel as this phase draws to a close I may revert to an earlier phase of my journey which more-or-less ditches much of what I’ve done over the past few years. I have never been a great pagan, Kemetic or chaos magician and if pushed would use the lower case versions of all of those. Full on practice of all of them really no longer appeals to me. My early stages I made so much progress without knowing dogma and I feel going back to that, even for a short while may be beneficial.

Don’t know yet, maybe will decide by the autumn.

I wish you all the best @kev . Personally, I hope you come back though :wink:

I had a feeling that something was going on with you/your path.

This popped up on my news feed this morning, which I found interesting and I thought of you

I’m not far away and will always be partly Kemetic in one form or another, just not finding any value in rigorous adherence. Never have been, and attempts to see if it works for me over the past five years have shown it does not. No real change.

Yes, I’ve seen that news report. Good choice :slight_smile:

Sadly, the more I connect with the “community”, the further I feel from my own practice. I suppose its my bad habit of trying to conform to other peoples standards. I’m just starting to feel comfortable in my own skin so hopefully I will get more confident with a more independent practice.

Some goals to set myself? Connect more with the gods I currently talk to (Nebthet, Sutekh, Anubis, Bast) and see where other relationships go (Hethert, Tasenetnofret, Heru Wer, Khnum, Wesir). Try to establish a regular time for reflection/meditation for my own mental health. Work on my witchcraft practice and spirit work. The less time I spend on this, the more ill I seem to get. “Shaman sickness” perhaps?

I’m feeling this too, the pull of a new season of magic and spirituality. A Big Name Pagan once told me (when I was having the same problem I am now) to “burn it all to the ground and see what survives” Not literally of course, just to stop all and see what is missing…then that’s what’s important. I found I needed less structured ritual and something more…organic? I spend more time in nature and less time worrying about how instagram worthy my shrine is. The statues aren’t opened, the gods aren’t in there…I got out and lived Ma’at with Them.I suppose this constant cycle of renewal I go through is why the Bennu/phoenix is one of my personal symbols.

Sorry for rambling, had too much coffee!

Well, I was going to say how little success I have had trying to find local people interested in Ancient Egyptian paganism. However, things seem to have picked up. Two people are interested in meeting up and one of them said she might know others she can bring along. We will see!

P.S. please ‘ramble’ on as much as you like Sen :slightly_smiling_face:
