   I've been pagan for a few years now, and Kemetic for about a few months, and one thing that really, really, has stumped me, is how to figure out a good daily rite. I know House of Netjer's followers have Senut, and Per Ankh has their Daily Rite (which is very similar, but let's not get into that whole thing  Roll Eyes ). I've been going through various texts to find useful utterances and whatnot, and I've found it a job easier said than done  Embarrassed
 
   I've also gone through the threads about rites and rituals, and I've found them helpful, but I'm still a bit lost, and as for potentially useful books like Eternal Egypt and whatnot, (I have quite a wishlist Sad ) to get them shipped here is not going to be easy.

  So my question is, if you don't mind posting them, what do you do for a daily rite, and which utterances, if any, have you used/modified to do so? And do you have any advice on to help me in going about writing one?

For you to do the required research to come up with a ritual that's faithful to kemetic theology and accurately reflects ancient practice is--make no bones about it--a very difficult task. You are better off simply acquiring the books frequently referred to in these posts. As you are already aware, it's neither a quick nor an easy task to create Kemetic ritual--so I'd say you should bite the bullet and order the books.

I'm gonna post this:
http://books.google.com/books?id=ATy33HyBAlAC&printsec=frontcover&dq=eternal+egypt&hl=en&ei=159RTKKSG5vrnQeH6eXIAw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CCwQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q&f=false
This is the google book result for Eternal Egypt. They allow you to read certain sections of the book, and it's possible that you could learn a couple things from what you're allowed to read. For example, the simplified morning ritual is readable in this format.

When I started off with Kemeticism, I more or less sat down, lit some incense, gave some offerings, and just chatted with the gods. It's not that formal, but it was what I had at the time. If formal structure isn't around for you, I would say that words from the heart are always accepted. I'm sure others will be in to add their thoughts as well.

I'd also suggest looking into Kerry Wisner's stuff.

http://www.hwt-hrw.com/akhetcatalog.php

Personally I like Reidy best because his work is more pure recon, less neopagan influence.  However, Wisner's stuff is solid overall.  His calendar in "Eye of the Sun", and his list of appropriate offerings to various deities is very useful.  Since you can download his books you don't have to worry about them getting shipped.

This is brilliant, thanks! I used to use the Daily Rite from Per Ankh with few tweaks, but it never really felt right per se, and I've been pretty much being informal and, as you said, basically just chatting with the Gods. This should help a lot, until I can figure out a way to get the book mailed to the Caribbean when our postal service is...less than trustworthy.

Having done a bit of googling, it appears there's a website or two which offers a digital version of Eternal Egypt too for about $6. Been very tempted to get it myself at that price for a digital copy, although nothing beats having a real book in your hands.

I've been reading this book for the last week or so: the rituals are excellent. They really speak to you from the get-go.

I didn't realize IUniverse offered digital copies of their books

I agree, there's nothing like a real book.  But if the mail is unreliable this might be your best bet.
