Ma’At 2-A-Days

Hotep!

From what I understand, a Neo-Kemetic life-style includes resiting the 42-negative confessions of Ma’At on two occasions per day.

The rationale for saying the confessions first thing in the morning is to prepare yourself with righteous and balanced Thought before starting the day’s activities.

Before sleep each night, confessions are repeated by replacing the words “I WILL” with “I DID”

In practice, the Neo-Kemite prepares her heart to stay “as light as a feather” while awake during the day AND sleeping during the night.  This practice keeps her ready if at anytime she transitions and is prepared for the great judgement for ascension.
