Greetings everyone! I thought I would give you all a little information about myself.
In secular life my name is Matt, and I am a 30-something gay man living in the Midwest. I am a registered nurse by trade. My nursing experience includes psychiatric/mental health, pediatrics, critical care, management, and geriatrics. I am currently obtaining my doctorate of nursing practice as a nurse practitioner. Because of this I may not be regular at updating this blog, but I will try. I enjoy traveling, cleaning, and playing with my pug Roscoe.
I am a member of the Kemetic Orthodox Faith. My Shemsu name is Raheriwesir. It does have a meaning and I usually do not freely discuss that online because it is deeply personal to me. I am a w’ab priest of Wesir (Osiris) and have been affiliated with the House since about 2007. A w’ab priest is a priest who tends a shrine to one of the Names of Netjer. I am also currently an ordained reverend in the faith. My ordination name is Djedef em heka en itef, but usually am called by my shemsu name among my brother and sisters of the faith. Much of my blog will be about my relationship with Wesir, and to let people know He isn’t as scary as He seems.
I am also a practicing vodouisant, initiated in 2010 as a Hounsi senp in Mambo Chita Tann’s house, Le Sosyete Fos Fe Yo We. I am continuing to learn about the role of the Haitian spirits in my life and why they want to hang around me. I also have a close connection with the Spirit World which will be seen in my blog.
In addition to all this I am currently a 3rd Degree Master Mason, and 32nd Degree Scottish Rite. I find the brotherhood and ideals of freemasonry very compatible with my world paradigm. I do not to get to attend Blue Lodge as often as I like because of school obligations.
This is just to give people a more rounded view of myself. So often I hear about how mysterious I am, and though I do not try to be mysterious on person I think it might be an inherited trait from my father.
If you have any questions about Wesir or the Kemetic Orthodox faith in general, please do not hesitate to send me a message.
