ETA: 1/2/2021: WELL this is gonna need a rewrite omg. Later on. When I have Brain to rework this.
I’m Sobekemiti, and I’ve been wandering through various paths during my thirteen years as a Pagan. I’ve been Wiccan, an eclectic Kemetic Pagan, and for six years, a Kemetic Orthodox shemsu. I now consider myself a devotional polytheist and druid-in-training.
While I will sometimes use reconstructinist methodology from time to time, I’m not a reconstructionist. I use modern rites and incorporate UPG into my practices. I use a mixed Wheel of the Year that works better with my seasons, and also incorporates Kemetic festivals. My monthly practices are based around a Greek structure, honouring noumenia and deipnon, and the full moon. I also offer to my ancestors once a month.
My primary daily devotions are to Heru-sa-Aset and Sobek, morning and night. I am Sobek’s hem-netjer and scribe, and there are aspects of sacred kink in our relationship. I write myths for Sobek, and also for Heru, new myths, and retellings of old myths. This is part of my work for Sobek in bringing His myths into the world once more. This website was initially started back in 2004 for this purpose, to make His name more known throughout the world.
I am a member of the Covenant of Hekate, and while I’m not currently doing work with Her right now, I have had three years of great experiences with Her, and I’m currently finding a place for Her in my practice, as it has changed significantly since July 2015.
I am also a member of ADF, after following the Solitary Druid Fellowship for the past couple of years. Adding druidry to my practice is a new thing for me, and I’m still learning much of it, but it’s enriched it greatly, and it helps me bridge that gap between a traditional Egyptian festival calendar, and the climate here that doesn’t work. Using a Wheel calendar does make it easier to blend though, because it’s a common festival foundation I can draw on.
I am currently working through the ADF Dedicant’s Program, using a Hellenic Hearth. I welcome any feedback on my DP work, and anyone is welcome to follow along with my progress. My DP journal can be found here: https://starfirerivertree.wordpress.com/
Part of my work for Sobek is book-making, and I have an Etsy store, Shedety Scriptorium, where I sell books, and prayer beads, and other devotional items.
