Which Netjer Are You Drawn To?

Ankh Iset's picture

As you all know, my association with Kemetic religion came through a long and continually growing attraction and relationship with Aset and Nebthet.

It is my observation that people seeking a Kemetic path have often, if not usually, been drawn to specific Nejter. Inevitably, it seems, when they pursue an assocication with that Netjer, they gravitate towards a Kemetic form of connections and expression.

Would you share here the Netjer you have most been drawn to, and how / why you think that is?

Hmm, I would say that I have been drawn to different Netjer at different times. Some of my favorites that I have been drawn to in the past are Nebthet,Anpu (Yinepu,Anubis - there are quite a few different way to say this name), Khonsu, and sometimes Bast. But more often than not, I seem to have a more of a pull specifically towards the Aten and Ma'at these days. ( Not quite sure why that is yet,I'm still working on it. I've got some ideas,but nothing really concrete yet.)

My patron God is Tjehutji (Thoth), mainly because I've been working on a dense anthology of Egyptian Literature based entirely off of primary sources. I've worked on it over two years now and I've had Him guide me and assist me in staying as true to the original content as is humanly possible at this point in history.
Aside from that project, I have embraced the entire pantheon but have been gravitating towards the relationship between the Gods of the first time, including Atum, Re, Neith, and Sobek's birth. More because i know little about Neith, the birth of Sobek, and how she carried her child Re away from her other children that wished to harm him (including Apep). I've found a few allusions in my primary sources but nothing too concrete yet. Perhaps I'll never find it, but it's the journey that counts.
