This is not a post to say “I told you so” but in 2012 when the world was supposed to end.   I remember debating with an individual and telling them that the war against us is mental/spiritual and not physical.   There are no more physical slave plantations in operation with slave drivers and bounties hunters chasing down slaves in the United States.  So, why are so many of us suffering from post-traumatic slave syndrome even though slavery has been abolished for years and none of us were slaves?  In other words, why are so many of us living as if we were physically enslaved?  Answer. Blame it on the devil but not the devil most of us think of.

Spiritually speaking, the devil is our lower ego-subconscious self.  This means that most of our problems are ego-driven. What this means is that 99.9% of our problems are inspired by our subconscious-ego-self fears, anxieties, worries, guilts, excessive passions, etc., but what is driving our fears, anxieties, worries, guilt, excessive passion, etc.?

If you say the media’s coverage of racism, police brutality, sexism, and other isms, then you are correct, but what is encouraging and inspiring the media?

Answer. The metaphysical terms are thought-form pendulums, tulpas, or egregore which spiritual sages simply called spirits.   Wikipedia defines an egregore as “Egregore is an occult concept representing a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people..”  The egregore causing us the most problems is the forces driving racism, which we can appropriately call the Spirit of Racism. The force driving sexism, chauvinism, feminism, etc. is a spirit.

The reason the devil is winning is that we are not looking behind the veil and understanding that everything that physically exists has an invisible spiritual counterpart. Consequently, we get to the game late because we are reactive, instead of being proactive. This is why when something big happens folks are ready to go boycott and march after the fact because they feel that they have been blindsided. It is also the reason why we feel as if we are fighting an impossible enemy and that nothing we physically try will work.

Set metaphorically is the Lord of Storms, Confusion, Chaos, and anything that causes disunity

Family. If you think of racism, sexism, chauvinism, feminism, dogmatism, sexual perversion, etc. are all being living spiritual entities. You will have a better grasp of understanding them and seeing how they influence people including yourself.  When you come to grips that these are spiritual entities and see their divisive attacks on us to prevent us from uniting based upon common history. Then, you will see their agents and realize that these people who have been mysteriously placed positioned in front of us to be our leaders do not represent us, our family, our community, or our people.  They serve another master and follow someone else’s agenda.

Funny thing. Google Black Leaders and these celebrities are the individuals who speak on our behalf. I don’t recall voting for these individuals to represent me. Do you?

Once you see all of this, this is when you will realize that the puppet master behind it all is Set (the Ego). Yes, there are clandestine groups that exist and are plotting away but their plans would always fail if we did not give in to our Set. Understand. If there was no high demand for drugs, drugs would not exist. Drugs only plague our society because there is a high demand for them.

Please note that all egregores, thought-forms, entities are not evil but these particular spirits are doing whatever they can to survive and receive energy from our actions and behaviors.  This means we need to change our tactics and start focusing on how to fight a spirit, which is meant for those who got it like that. Got it?

So, the next time you pick up a picket sign, decide to march, boycott or fight. Ask yourself, is this really what you want to do or are you compelled, encouraged and pressured to act and behave this way. To help guide you in the right direction, check out Why You Should Be Using An Oracle.

If African Spirituality Was So Powerful, Why Were They Enslaved and Conquered?

8 02 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

If you are new to African spirituality or an old head, you will eventually come face to face with this elephant that not many people would like to discuss and it is. “If African spirituality was so powerful, then why were the Africans enslaved and conquered?”

Moorish enslavers enslaved other Africans based on cultural and religious differences

Another question related to this is “Why was the African continent invaded and numerous countries conquered by less spiritually powerful invaders?”

Well, I believe it was because of three reasons and I look forward to hearing your comments on if you agree or disagree. Before I give my reasons I let me say that I have been on this path off and on for a while. For the record, this does not give authority or more credence than others. I am simply putting it out there for those who need to know that I have been around the spiritual block several times.

So, if African spirituality was so powerful, why were they enslaved and conquered? Well, as I mentioned, I have three reasons why.

First, I don’t think that African spirituality was that powerful and for that matter. I don’t think there is one spiritual system that is all-powerful. One of the greatest myths that many people have when they start dabbling and getting into spiritual culture is that they believe. That when they become spiritual they will be all-powerful. They will be able to walk on water. Float above the ground while meditating. Talk to clouds and make it rain for a specific period because “we are gods and goddesses.”

This myth is so powerful that it makes us look at spiritual traditions as if they are storefronts at a mall. So we choose to follow one spiritual tradition because it promises to make us wealthy, or we leave one tradition because they did not fulfill their promise based upon what we believed to make us healthy, powerful, or whatever instant gratification goal we desire.

The facts are that all spiritual systems are essentially the same. If you don’t see this it probably because you are still suffering from the religious dogma that programmed you to believe that only Baptists are going to heaven, or Jehovah witnesses are right, etc. So, let me say it again, all spiritual traditions are essentially the same. The major difference between all spiritual traditions is the culture and language that hosts the tradition.

No spiritual tradition is perfect, which is why historically you can find flaws in every cultural society that hosted them. For instance, with all of the wisdom that has flowed out of China due to Taoism and Kung Fu Tze (Confucius) you would think China would be a spiritually enlightened mecca but China oppresses her citizens, women are very suppressed, the labor laws are horrific and their environment is a cesspool. So much for an enlightened China or not? So, the first reason the Africans were enslaved and conquered despite having a powerful spiritual system is that people have to implement it.

This brings me to the second point but forces me to ask this question before giving my response. The question is with all of this great and powerful wisdom that has come out of China in the past 30 to 50 years, why does China have the problems she has? The answer is because people still have free will to do whatever they want. As a matter of fact, when China was undergoing its cultural revolution and being influenced by Westerners. Most of China’s wisdom and spiritual traditions were seen as superstitious nonsense. In fact, most of the Chinese spiritual practices and traditions that we appreciate in the West such as feng shui, qi gong, I Ching, etc. are considered folk practices in China. Need proof? Watch the Ip Man series on Netflix, which reveals that one of the reasons he became a legend is because he was trying to preserve the Chinese culture amid Western influence (Regardless of how factual the story is it is a familiar theme). Now, does that sound familiar? Understand, that the only reason most of these practices are tolerated is that so many people practice it. By the way, Cuba went through a similar transition but now the African religions that have survived are celebrated as a part of Cuban culture. Again, people who do not understand this will try to create a schism between the two.

Now, I say all of this to say that this is what Africa suffered from when the Arabs and Europeans were welcomed to their lands. It is a classic case of being enamored by another culture to the point that you view your own culture as inferior. When the Portuguese arrived on the shores of the Kongo Kingdom, the Kongo rulers experienced a technology gap where they were so fascinated by the Europeans arsenal and culture that they willingly converted to Christianity.

Let me say it again because there’s this myth that all Africans were forced into slavery. Many of the Kongo people willingly converted to Christianity because it was not the same trick bag that was used over in the States to justify slavery. So, reason number 2 as to why the Africans were enslaved if their spiritual systems are so powerful is that they started seeing other peoples’ spiritual systems as superior and their own as inferior.

Lastly, the final reason they were enslaved and conquered is that they had become too spiritual. When an individual is too spiritual they are no worldly good because they are focused on idealism and they ignore the physical reality or commonsense. This is because you are always looking at the best of an individual. For instance, the Divine exists in everyone and everything including rattlesnakes but would you pick up a rattlesnake without training? Would you let a stranger off the street sleep in your home? If you are too spiritual you would and you are opening yourself up for a great spiritual lesson but, if you got commonsense you better not. This is where people get ideas about Maa wrong and Maat says that if you have the means share. That means if someone asks for $10 and you can share it without missing it, by all means, share it. If it comes back great and it proves that the individual you shared it with is trustworthy but if not you will not miss it, no loss. This whole idea of giving your last dime because God is going to bless you is a warped western religious belief.

Being too spiritual is a sin like being materialistic. If you have read the Story of Osar, the reason Osar was murdered by his youngest brother is that he was too spiritual. For those interested in Kemetic history, the reason Ankhenaten disappeared is that he was too spiritual and it almost resulted in Kemet being conquered by the Assyrians had the Amun Ra priesthood not stepped in. We must remember that to the Kemetic people righteousness is being Maa, hence balance, orderly, truthful which is symbolized as Hru wearing the double crown.

Osar (Osiris) symbolizes the white crown of KAMTA (Spiritual Realm). Set represents the red crown in TASETT (Physical Realm). Therefore, Hru wearing the white and red crown symbolizes a balance between the spiritual and physical realities.

A fact that a lot of people do not want to accept is that the reason African religions were not able to survive in North America was that they were too spiritual and not aggressive enough. This is the reason the Ifa religion had to evolve and become Lucumi in Cuba, Umbanda in Brazil, and why the Kongo tradition had to become Palo in Cuba and Qibanda in Brazil, and so on. All of which became Conjure and Rootwork in North America.

So, the final reason they were enslaved and conquered is that they had become too spiritual, which convinced them to see their enemies as friends.

Now, these are all very important points that we need to be aware of because there are many among us now trying to convince us that the power, wealth, etc. that we need comes from an herb, stone, crystal, bone, or some other outside source. These individuals have simply change the names and superimposed their western religious beliefs on to African-style names.

The Divine power is within us. It is not in the tradition. It is not in the artifacts or relics, which are all tools used to convince you of your divinity.

Note that it is not about religion.  I have met some very powerful and spiritual Christians and Muslims because they understood that their religion was the path they had to take to join with their godhead. Whereas I have met people who state they are spiritual who have simply superimposed their old religious beliefs onto spiritual practices.

We have to understand that these are all paths.  If a particular path doesn’t work for you, then there is always self-initiation but don’t delude yourself. All the paths are about becoming one with the god/goddess within you. If you remember this you will not be hoodwinked like our ancestors were in the past.

The True Purpose of Kemetic Spirituality

8 02 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

It has come to my attention that we have all been duped into believing that Egyptian spiritual system better known as Kemetic Spirituality is about memorizing the 42 Declarations of Maat, performing rituals as the Kemetic people had done, working with gems and stones, practicing yoga/tai chi/ki gong, observing the zodiac and everything else that we have been told that the Kemetic people or spiritual people should do.

What is Kemetic Spirituality?

Kemetic farmers courtesy of Wikipedia.org

No. The Egyptian mystery systems, Egyptian spirituality or Kemetic Spirituality is all about overcoming our ego, which is the reason the Kemetic people did not leave texts on how relationships, money, etc.  Everything was focused on overcoming the ego including their agriculture.

The reason most of us missed this very important point is that we have relied upon other’s interpretations of our ancestral’ ways. But, these individuals and/or groups interpreting our ancestral ways do not come from a spiritual culture so they really have no business interpreting it because they are spiritually ignorant themselves. Consequently, these individuals and groups have perverted the original purpose of these teachings and in a classic imperialistic mindset, they proclaim that only their interpretation is authentic, orthodox and everyone else’s is not.  When it is nothing more than a version based upon some bias Western scholar’s perspective.  This same attitude is the reason similar people interpreted the Christian bible literally, but when it is understood from a spiritual perspective. We see that it is nothing more than an instruction manual dealing with the ego. This is the purpose of the Ten Commandments and various references about “the kingdom of God being within.”

So let me be the one to set the record straight. All of the spiritual sciences and practices that have been discovered were all created to help us to do one thing.  Their role is to help us to overcome our ego. Yes, they may have some extraordinary physical benefits but don’t get tricked into believing that this is their primary purpose. For instance, meditation, yoga, tai chi, and Ki gong are all great spiritual practices that have documented benefits of the physical body but this is not why these practices were created. They were created to help you to gain mastery over your ego, as well as every other spiritual practice including the use of magick.

Why were all of these practices created to help us to overcome our ego, you ask?

It is because our ego or subconscious was created to help us to physically survive. One of the ways the subconscious works to help us to survive is by categorizing all of our experiences as either pleasant/pleasure or unpleasant/pain. It is a real rudimentary system that established all of our fears, anxieties, and worries so that we can physically survive. For instance, if something is too hot we feel pain so we remove our hand from a hot stove to feel pleasure. As a result, we normally categorize everything from this pleasure/pain perspective as either being good or bad/evil based upon how we feel.

The problem with this simple classification system is that it is flawed because everything that is good for us does not necessarily make us feel good, just like everything that is bad for us does not make us feel bad.

Proof of this flawed classification system is the consumption of drugs and illicit drugs. They might make us feel good for a short while but in the long run, they are not good for our bodies. There are other things that we can find from food to lifestyle choices that fit in this same category of making us feel good but not being good for us.

This is why it is said that we live in a world of illusions because we are chasing after things that we believe will give us pleasure or be good for us, but they will only provide us with a temporary high. And, in this instant gratification society that we live in, situations have become increasingly worse because people are unaware that the source of all of their problems stems from their subconscious ego-self, which is why the Kemetic sages called the ego, Set.

For instance, here are some of the lies that our Set tells us:

  1. I don’t need a man/woman. I can do it by myself.
  2. I don’t eat pork, drink alcohol, etc. because I am “woke” and people who do these things are not.
  3. When I have enough money, I will be happy.

Basically, any time you hear a little voice whispering in your ear things to protect you based upon your past experiences, suggestions to play it safe, suggestions that will not rattle the chain, anything that makes you feel as if you are better than others and feel content. You are listening to Set who is gassing you up for a great fall. In other words, any suggestions that make you feel fearful, anxious, selfish, worrisome, etc. based upon your past experience, is Set.

Set prevents us from seeing the whole picture by making us a prisoner of our own beliefs and past experiences. When we step out of our comfort zone and ignore the erroneous beliefs and our past experiences, then we can overcome Set.

So that we are clear, Set is the egotistical part of our being or our subconscious, hence lower self. Set is not some evil entity running around with the pitchfork like some devious imp. No. Set is the lower you and when you hear all of these heinous acts and crimes occurring all over the community, city, state, nation, and world. It is because these individuals have given into their Set, which has promised them that they will feel good about themselves if they engage in the erroneous belief or past act. These are people giving into their lower, animalistic, reptilian and beastie self.

Understand. We all have a lowly nature but we can choose to listen to it or not, which is what makes us human beings. The voice that tells us to do the opposite of what we feel and to do what is right instead of what is easy, is our Superconscious or Osar (Osiris).

We must get into the habit of using meditation, meditative practices, prayer, magick, etc. as tools to limit the influence of our lower ego-self or Set, and invite our Higher Self or Osar (Osiris) into our life. For instance, if you choose to do a ritual to improve any aspect of your life. Note that it is based upon the understanding that you personally have limited experience in dealing with the matter. Therefore, you are handing it over to your Higher Self or Osar because you trust that it is more powerful, wiser and is unlimited.

How Do You Know You Are Growing Spiritually

How Do You Know You Are Growing Spiritually?

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I was recently asked this question by an individual on the Kemetic religious path.
How do you know if a diet work? Usually, you know if the diet is working after a couple of weeks to a month if you see your waistline shrink or a few pounds off have fallen off the scale. How do you know if you are building muscle that an exercise works? Obvious, you look at yourself in the mirror and you measure your biceps or whatever muscle group you are targeting. But, how do you know if you are growing spiritually? This question has often confused a lot of people mainly because in our era of “wokeness” the term spirituality is often tied with religion, although the two are different. At the same time, enlightenment is also used interchangeably with the word spiritual but these two terms are different as well. For instance, an individual can be enlightened but not spiritual, while a person can be religious and spiritual at the same time. So, how do you know if you are growing spiritually? Well before we dive into this subject, let’s define some terms so that we are all on the same page.

First thing first, we are composed of three parts known as the conscious, Superconscious and subconscious. For simplicity purposes, the conscious is the part of our mind that we use to make choices and decisions. The Superconscious is the part of our mind known as the Divine Spark because it is omnipotent, omniscient and it connects us to the Universe. The subconscious is known as our personal consciousness because it is responsible for helping us to physically survive by storing everything that we have learned in our memory and governing our emotions.

For this reason, the conscious is also called the Spiritual Heart or our Soul. The Superconscious is also called the Higher Self and is personified as Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiirs), while the subconscious is called the lower self or ego and is personified as Set.

Typically the way our life operates is that when we want something like a glass of water. We make a conscious choice or decision to get what we want, and our subconscious supports our decision by stimulating our body to get a glass of water. Then, our Superconscious manifests whatever we want (e.g. a glass of water) into a reality by providing us with the resources to get the glass of water. This is how we acquired everything pleasant our life.

But, what happens when we want something that appears out of reach like a job promotion, a better job, a home, etc.? Usually it is because our subconscious holds erroneous beliefs in our memory that prevents us from achieving what we want. For instance, if you want a better job, it is the ego within our subconscious that tells us that we do not have the qualifications or that we are not the best candidate. If we want a loving relationship, it is our ego that will tell us that all men/women cheat, are no good, etc. It is our ego that tells us that we are fat, ugly, not worthy to be loved, etc. It is our ego that tells us that “money does not grow on trees” and every other self-defeating belief we have about money and economic freedom.

Basically, every negative and sabotaging saying and belief that is whispered in our ear will come from our ego and where does the ego get these beliefs and ideas from? These are all beliefs and ideas that were either told to us or we picked up from our loved ones, friends, teachers, media, etc. and are now stored in our subconscious. Why did our subconscious pick up these ill beliefs and ideas? It is because the subconscious is like a child, which imitates and mimics everything that it is exposed to and categorizes it as good or bad based upon how the experience makes us feel.

Have you ever wondered why most people who struggle with an addiction, such as cigarettes will tell you how they know that smoking is bad for them, but they will continue to do it because the way cigarettes make them feel? It is because the knowledge about cigarettes appeals to the rational conscious mind, but the motivation and power to smoke are governed by the subconscious.

This is the reason the subconscious was symbolized as a jackass (donkey) because it is ruthlessly stubborn and emotional. This is the reason the subconscious or ego is personified as Set.

Set the personification of the ego

So, how do you change an old belief or idea that is stored in your subconscious? Well, if the belief or idea is fairly new, then it can be changed simply with reeducation. For instance, if you learned that 2+3=4, then being taught the proper way to add will easily correct this belief or idea so that you know the answer is 5.

But for old beliefs or ideas that have been impressed upon your subconscious with emotional triggers, it takes a little more finesse to change them. Typically, emotional beliefs and ideas can only be removed and replaced with a stronger emotional belief and idea. For instance, if you were a child who was bitten by a dog, then this traumatic event convince you that all dogs are ferocious and bad. But, if somehow you have a positive experience, such as a dog coming to your defense against an attacker, then this experience will topple the previous negative dog experience.

Now, you may not struggle with dogs but you might struggle with overeating, exercising, being too nice, being too aggressive, not making enough money, being selfish, etc., which are all character flaws created by your ego or Set. Therefore, the purpose of spirituality is to overcome the ego or Set by merging with the Higher Self or Osar.

Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris)

Therefore:

  • Spirituality is not calling yourself “Spiritual,” striving to be nice, striving to be good or declaring yourself better than others. Spirituality is personal psychological development aimed at overcoming all the conditional learnings of the ego that we learned from our family, friends, schools, churches, etc. – particularly egotism, selfishness, fear, anxiety, worry, and other character flaws.
  • Spiritual awakening means becoming aware of your ego’s or Set’s influence in your life.
  • Enlightenment, which has been misinterpreted as gaining information and learning about various subjects, really refers to expanding your consciousness from your ego-self to your Higher Self. Do you know that the reason most people became so health-conscious was that in the 1960s after the government created LSD? People tripped on LSD, mushrooms, ayahuasca, and other psychedelic drugs, which influenced these people to see that animals and plants were living beings too. This was enlightenment because their consciousness expanded and they no longer saw themselves as individuals but as parts of a larger whole. So for the record, reading and studying books on metaphysics, spirituality, history, etc. is not being spiritually awakened nor is it enlightenment. While this activity is a useful guide (especially for those of us who have no spiritual guide), it only strengthens, boost and inflates the ego which can be seen by “woke” YouTubers who argue how “spiritual” or “woke” they are based upon what they have read.
  • Religion, while etymologically defined as a system designed “to tie” one back to the Creator or Source, is a set of ritual and ceremonial practices performed for a lengthy period that they have now become a long-lasting routine. Anytime someone says that you must do something a certain way or else, they are following a religious practice. Since religious practices are basically rituals and ceremonies designed to make a strong impression on the subconscious they can assist in helping one to transcend their ego if it is combined with spiritual awakening and enlightenment. If spiritual awakening and enlightenment are absent from religious practice, then religion becomes a “spiritual trap” where individuals fight over dogmatic beliefs and think that they are “good” or “the Chosen Ones” and everyone else is evil.

How Do You Know You Are Growing Spiritually?

Usually, the most important sign that you are growing spiritually is that you will have a change in behavior. You may become more empathetic, patient, sharing, etc. Typically, whatever you are comfortable doing, you will find yourself in uncomfortable situations. For instance, it never fails that meek and mild manner people always are put in situations where they must be bold and aggressive. They will either get in relationships, have children, or put in job positions where they must be bold and aggressive and vice versa.

Another sign is that you take responsibility for your actions and behaviors because the more the flaw is brought to your attention. The more effort you can devote to changing or eradicating it from your subconscious.

You watch your thoughts, actions, behaviors, etc. because you know that if you dwell on them for a length of time. Your Superconscious will make it a physical reality.

Last but not least, you cease seeing things as good and bad and instead see every experience as an opportunity to spiritually develop and grow and become more Osarian (Asarian, Ausarian, Osirian).

For those on the Kemetic religious path, hopefully, this helps. However, note that if you are on the Kemetic shamanic path, then enlightenment is a side effect that occurs after focusing on tangible goals.

How to Get the Gods to Answer Your Prayers

19 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, if you are new to spirituality and metaphysics, one of the most complex subjects to wrap your head around is the thought that the gods and goddesses are within you.  It is a rough transition to make from all of a sudden praying for a deity to save you, to you saving yourself. So, hopefully, this post will help you in your growth and understanding.

First, to get your prayers answered you must remember that you are a microcosm of a greater Macrocosm, which means that the entire Universe exists within you and that there are no outside forces that are going to save you. Psychologically speaking this means that we all have a conscious, subconscious and Superconscious. Remember, the conscious is the rational and decision making part of our being or our soul. The subconscious is the autonomous part of our being that maintains our physical wellness and helps us to physically survive. While the Superconscious is the divine spark or the collective unconscious part of our being that is commonly referred to as God within or simply put, God.

Now, our Superconscious mysteriously and intuitively gives us solutions to all of our problems but to access it we must relax, surrender and have faith in it. This is a challenge for a lot of us because most of us live in a western society that trains us to trust what we can physically see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and feel. In other words, we are taught that the only things that are real are those things we can assess with our five physical senses. So we feel that for something to work, we must logically understand it but the Superconscious (or God) does not operate this way. The Superconscious (or God) works in mysterious ways, which means it functions best when you are not concentrating on it. So, we must approach our Superconscious as if it were a light switch. The same way we trust that the lights will come on when we flip the switch. We have to trust that the Superconscious will act in our favor whenever we access or turn it on as well. If we approach the Superconscious with anxiety, worry, fear, fret, etc. Then it signifies that we do not have faith in our Superconscious and have more faith in what we have learned, which is the reason most prayers are not answered.

To increase our faith in the Superconscious, the sages of antiquity understanding the mysterious nature of the Superconscious and recognizing that It was so abstract, complex and vast. Categorized, labeled and called the Superconscious’ omnipotence and omniscience gods, goddesses, angels, etc. for simplicity purpose. For instance, instead of saying that our Superconscious is all-knowing, the Kemetic sages symbolized this attribute as an ibis (crane, stork, etc. while others symbolized it as an owl) because these birds standstill, which represents concentration and intense focus on one thought, hence wisdom. They called this attribute of the Superconscious Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti, and Thoth in Greek). So, if someone wanted to wisely solve a problem all they needed to do is focus on Djahuti, ask their question, relax, express your gratitude knowing that they will have the solution and go about their normal business.
To signify that the Superconscious will protect someone from physical and spiritual harm. The ancient sages symbolized the mysterious defensive and protective attributes of the Superconscious by a ferocious and fighting animal like a hawk, falcon, lion, etc. (instead of making it a symbol or mascot for a sports team). Then, they called this aspect of the Superconscious/God Hru Aakhuti.
All of the so-called gods and goddesses were created in this same manner, so:

  • Npu  (Sebek, Anubis to see a Npu altar click here ) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to find a way out of no way or to create opportunities. Psychologically speaking he represents our beliefs. Thus, he is the master of all roads and doors, and owner of all keys. Consequently, nothing can be done without his permission, which is why every ceremony, ritual, and a new adventure starts and ends with him. His colors are red, black, white and/or yellow. His sacred color is 3 and multiples of like 9 and 21.
  • Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) is the unifier of Kemet who introduced law, religion, and the science of agriculture, thus making Kemetic a very prosperous civilization. For this reason, Osar represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to unify and bring peace, morality, ethics, compassion, wisdom, prosperity, healing and purity to an individual. He is the Lord of the Underground (Superconscious) because he is seen as the first human being to be deified. His color is white and his totems are everything white.
  • Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti, Thoth) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to resolve problems through wisdom.
  • Hru Aakhuti (Horusakhte) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to protect, defend and clear the road that Npu opens of obstacles. Since he is the forger of iron, which can be used as a tool or weapon, he represents both creativity and violence and controls life and death. His colors are blood red and purple. 
  • Maat represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to find, restore and maintain balance. She has a close relationship with Osar being the lawgiver, Djahuti who is said to have married in some legends while being the sister in others. While other sources indicate that Maat walks alongside Hru Aakhuti and Npu to give direction so that their hunts are successful, orderly, righteous, just and balance. Her colors are sky blue and yellow. Her sacred number is 2.
  • Hru (Hrw, Heru, Horus) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to make us victorious in day-to-day challenges. He symbolizes the fight that exists in every choice and decision that we make, as well as our determination to live life to its fullest. Physiologically he represents the heart. His colors are red and white, and his sacred number is 6.
  • Nebhet (Nephtys) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to attract, harmonize and beautify. She is the patroness of music, art, poetry, etc. and represents pleasure and the easy flowing creative energy found in rivers, streams, brooks, and honey. Physiologically she represents the sexual organs. Her colors are yellow and green, pink and amber. Her sacred number is 5 and multiples including 25.
  • Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to nurture and transform a life. She is the Queen of all and so considered a fierce warrior but also the path to one’s heritage and riches. As the Mother of All, she is recognized as being the netcharu of mercy. Physiologically she represents the reproductive organs and digestive system. Her colors are blue and white, and her sacred number is 7.
  • Sokar (Sekher, Soqqar) represents Superconscious’s mysterious ability to overcome the impossible and recover from debilitating illnesses and diseases like smallpox, cancer, etc. Sokar has a simple taste and favors simple things and colors like black, and indigo, some say brown and purple. His sacred number is 13.
  • Set represents the Superconscious’s mysterious ability to create chaos and havoc based upon erroneous beliefs, ideas, fear, guilt, worry, jealousy, and ignorance. It is the lowest manifestation of the Superconscious, which is why it is associated primarily with the ego. As such, Set manifests himself as any chaotic energy symbolized as winds, whirlwinds, storms, and all-natural disasters. Therefore, when there is a thunderstorm it is said to be Hru and Set fighting. When there is an earthquake it is said to be Set usurping one’s Osar, and so on.

The simplest way to get answers from them is to clearly ask your question and allow the answer to come to you.  You can meditate on the question while focusing your eyes on your brow.  Another method that I have had a lot of success with is repeating to myself “Thank you for answering this question of  ___________.”

If you use any of these methods, make sure that you pay attention to your dreams and other synchronistic events that signify that the gods and goddesses are communicating with you. For instance, whenever I ask Npu to speak or give me a sign that a request has been heard. I usually will see a dog wandering around in the middle of the road. I remember one-time Npu communicated back to me by having three dogs walk diagonally across a crossroads. 

Funny thing.  I remember asking Nebhet to give me a sign and one time a black cat typically darts out in front of me while I am driving.  I remember that seemed a little coincidental, so a few days later on a Friday. I was driving and came to a stop because in the middle of the road was a peacock, which is one of her totems. No lie!  Apparently, one of the houses I normally passed had a peacock as a pet and it had gotten loose. 

There are other methods that exist as well. So if you have success with using any of the above methods or you have a proven way that works for you. Please share.

Can You Be Spiritual and Still Have Enemies? (Pt.2 How to Attack/Defend the Kemetic Shaman Way)

17 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

If you have not read Part 1 of this discussion, please do so that you can put things in perspective.

As I mentioned in Part 1, a lot of my mind control in regards to dealing with enemies comes from watching the television series Kung Fu, but to be fair. The mind programming did not just come from this series. I was brainwashed by the Church not to defend myself and to let God deal with those who oppose us (enemies).  My parents reaffirmed what the Church taught me, which was also communicated to me in history class whenever I was taught about Dr. Martin L. King, Jr.

Now, there’s a lot of new information coming out about King that people did not know. For instance, there are reports that King stated to his friend, actor, singer and activist Harry Belafonte”

“According to Belafonte, King responded, “I’ve come upon something that disturbs me deeply. We have fought hard and long for integration, as I believe we should have, and I know we will win, but I have come to believe that we are integrating into a burning house. I’m afraid that America has lost the moral vision she may have had, and I’m afraid that even as we integrate, we are walking into a place that does not understand that this nation needs to be deeply concerned with the plight of the poor and disenfranchised. Until we commit ourselves to ensure that the underclass is given justice and opportunity, we will continue to perpetuate the anger and violence that tears the soul of this nation. I fear I am integrating my people into a burning house.”

The reason for noting this is because almost 52 years later, it is easy to criticize the lack of foresight that individuals had in the past.  We have all talked about and heard discussions on the pros and cons of the Civil Rights Movement. However, what I have failed to hear a lot of discussion on is where King’s error in thinking came from.  Remember, King was inspired by Gandhi.

By Ashwin Desai and Goolem Vahed. Courtesy of: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-34265882

Did you know that Gandhi supported racial segregation and stated that the “Indians are a little better if at all than savages or the Natives of Africa.” In The South African Gandhi: Stretcher-Bearer of Empire by Ashwin Desai and Goolem Vahed, we find that Gandhi believed in the Aryan brotherhood and believed that Whites and Indians were superior to the Black Africans. We also find that he supported racist policies such as overtaxing the impoverished Africans of South Africa and turning a blind eye to the European brutality of the Africans whin the country, to support his belief that Indians were better.

Of course, I am pretty sure King did not know about Gandhi and his beliefs at the time. He was simply inspired by Gandhi’s nonviolent approach against imperialism because he saw Black people in the United States as being militarily powerless like the Indian people that Gandhi fought for. What King did not know is that the Indians’ nonviolent protest was also a tax resistance against the monopoly the British had on salt  (see the Salt March).

The point that I am making is that King did not know how to deal with enemies because he was looking for a solution outside of himself.

What we have to understand is that our situation is unique. There is no other group of people in the world that has undergone our experience, which means we are the only ones who can create a solution because of understanding the problem. So, how do you defend and protect yourself from enemies?

Well, our universe according to the Maa Aankh is composed of two realities: a spiritual (KAMTA) and physical (TASETT) realm separated by the watery Nyun and is connected by Maa, which mirrors what exists “Above, so below.” This means that our physical reality is a reflection of what is going on within our being and vice versa. Therefore, if your life is chaotic, then your soul is in turmoil. If your life is pleasant and happy, then your soul is pleasant and happy within. This is known as the Law of Correspondence, which basically means “likes attract likes.”

To defend and protect yourself the Kamta way, I would recommend you make a home for your warrior netchar Hru Aakhuti.  To do this simply purchase a cast-iron cauldron in Hru Aakhuti’s honor. If you cannot get a cast-iron cauldron then clay pottery or a woven straw mat will suffice because Hru Aakhuti is a wild guardian warrior.  He is about defense and protection. So, you need to purchase items that he can use to defend and protect you like a machete, knife or knives. You can place any item that you want inside the pot that symbolizes defense and protection including herbs, crystals, weapons, toy weapons, toy soldiers, protection oil, protection incense, etc. because of the Law of Correspondence. Whatever you do, I recommend that you also place 11 small plaster or ceramic skulls to symbolize unknown warrior spirits who are willing to work under Hru Aakhuti’s banner.

When you build or create a home for your netchar Hru Aakhuti and you create an electro-magnetic field specifically for defense and protection. The more you see your altar, which is giving it attention. The stronger your altar becomes or the more charged it will be. In fact, after a 28-day lunar cycle, the altar will be charged, which means any item placed on the altar and carried with you will be charged with the defensive and protective energy of Hru Aakhuti. For instance, you can take a small pocket knife and ask Hru Aakhuti to bless it so that it defends and protects you like a charm. Then, leave the pocket knife with him for 24 hr. The next morning you can carry it in your pocket. In exchange offer Hru Aakhuti an offering such as a red or purple candle, money, spicy foods, cigars, spirits (rum, vodka, gin, etc.), and so on. You can also add protection baths, oils and perfumes on the altar to change your aura.

If your enemy is harassing you and getting on your nerves. Take an item of theirs and place it on the altar, then ask Hru Aakhuti to protect you by removing the individual away from you. You do not need to worry about the details. Simply know and trust that Hru Aakhuti will deal with them appropriately.

Can You Be Spiritual and Still Have Enemies? (Pt. 1)

17 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

It will be MLK Day here soon and just in time because the other day my best friend sent me a djvlad video of an interview with Michael Jai White.  I have been a longtime fan of White’s martial arts movie since the 1990s and I am glad he continues to do films. Anyway, in one of the videos, he shatters the myths about Shaolin monks, ninjas and how most of the celebrities we see in the film doing martial arts are really actors and not combat martial artists the way the films portray them. It was a really good interview but the one subject that came up about Shaolin monks is how people were coaxed into believing Shaolin monks still existed because of the television series Kung Fu.

Kung Fu television series starring David Carradine

Now, for those of you who have read other posts that I have done, you know that I talk about this television series a lot because it portrayals “spiritual people” as these meek individuals walking around barefoot living an ascetic lifestyle.  It is really too bad that this TV series, which was originally pitched by and supposed to cast the legendary Bruce Lee in the lead role, ended up with David Carradine because Lee was considered to be too Asian.

The television series Kung Fu starring David Carradine.

It might have got some real Eastern philosophy inputted into the series, but instead those of us who grew up watching this series got a lot of fake imagery on what it meant to be a martial artist and fake imagery on what it means to be “spiritual.”

Consequently, I heard an individual the other day say on dealing with enemies, “When you’re really spiritual. Enemies, do not exist.”

Are you FRIGGIN kidding me? Then, the whole Story of Osar with Hru battling Set was about what? Your friends? I hate when people get spiritual concepts mixed up and have no commonsense.

Yes. Technically we do not have any enemies because we are all gods and goddesses, but if an individual does not recognize their divinity and they oppose you. They are your enemy.

Family. Being “spiritual” does not mean being “naïve” or “stupid.” I have said it before and I may be the only one who has said it because I approach Kemetic spirituality from a shamanic perspective, but Osar symbolizes an individual who is “too spiritual.” This is why he was murdered by his younger brother Set.

It does not matter how “spiritual” you are, you will always have “haters.”

The character Morpheus in the 1999 film The Matrix says it best when he told Neo about the agents. He states:

“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so  inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

When Neo looks at the woman in the red dress who turns into an agent. Morpheus tells Neo when he asks if it was the Matrix:

“No. It’s another program, designed to teach you one thing: If you are not one of us, you are one of them. “

Morpheus continues by saying that agents are sentient programs that can move in and out of software while still being hard-wired to the system.  In other words, agents are our enemies which are people who act solely based upon their feelings because they have no spiritual culture.

Understand. This does not make us better than them or vice versa. It simply means that you being a “spiritually” minded individual recognizes that the Divine is within you and everything, including your enemy.  The Divine is within a poisonous snake but you would be a fool to put yourself in danger by appealing to the snake’s higher self.

Commonsense is what a lot of us (myself included) lost from watching fake spiritual shows like Kung Fu. We must remember that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, so we must protect ourselves and defend ourselves if necessary.

Again, technically we do not have any enemies because we are all gods and goddesses, but if an individual does not recognize their divinity and they oppose you. They are your enemy.

Who’s Right? Who’s Wrong? Dr. Claud Anderson or Yvette Carnell?

28 12 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

OMG! So, everyone is talking about the interview that Dr. Claud Anderson author of Black Labor, White Wealth and Powernomics, did on the Breakfast Club on December 24, and how ADOS founder Yvette Carnell basically blasted on him. I wasn’t really following this subject on YouTube but I quickly learned that apparently Carnell had done a few videos blasting Dr. Anderson because she disagrees with his views. So, as I watched her videos and other videos that supported her point of view and opposed it. I felt myself, slowly getting sucked into the debate, which led me to email a couple of friends who have been following this debate when it first started, and I asked their opinion on the subject.  When I read my friends’ replies, I returned to watching both sides of the videos that were posted and then it hit me.

Regardless of what side you believe is right or wrong, why aren’t these people having this discussion behind closed doors?

I mean who openly and publicly announces what their political agenda and strategy is so that everyone (enemies included) knows what you are thinking?

Suspicious.

Then, the next thought that came to me as I breathed a deep sigh of relief and turned it all off was:

“Thank God, I have an oracle that will help me to see through the BS.”

Family. We can’t claim to be gods and goddesses but continue to act like human beings thinking that our intellect is going to solve the problems we face on this earthly plane. I mean what part of the Story of Osar do people not understand when it is said that Set usurped the throne of Osar and stole all of Hru (OUR) inheritance? Then, Set created an unjust system to ensure that the laws, policies, etc. will always work against us. So, what makes people think that we are going to succeed and win the ordinary and regular way?  When will we realize that we must use metaphysical and spiritual means to overthrow the Setian forces in our life? This is what the Eye of Hru means.

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition, metaphysics, magick, and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

I am telling you Family that I just did a reading about a situation and my aakhu (ancestors) told me that it was best that I walk away. So, I walked away and later learned that if I hadn’t walked away I would have been caught up in some deep poo!

The same divination process can be done for every aspect of our life including politics.  When you do not use an oracle (or some other form of divination), you basically have a bunch of opinionated debates where the TRUTH gets buried by who can sling and throw the most mud.

If you are not in a spiritual culture you need to get into one because it will help you to navigate away from these distractions and focus on the true business at hand. Who’s right and wrong? Who has the best plan? Who is for and against? Are all questions that we can take to the oracle and let the indwelling intelligence within us all tell us who speaks for Set (selfishly for their own interest) and who speaks Maa (Truth) for the people.

How to Celebrate the Birth of HRU (Winter Solstice)

16 12 2019

Dear Hru (Heru, Horus)

Oh how Set (Set-an, the Ego) has perverted your holy-day by convincing the sleepers that a hero was born to save them and shower them with wondrous gifts.  However, don’t fret because the Age of Information is among us, and Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) and Nebhet (Nephthys) are steady erecting shrines to remind people of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris), Our true Father who art in Heaven (Superconscious).  People are celebrating in every way they can to welcome you Hru such as making chakra trees and so on.

Today Hru, I decided to make a tree of life tree to welcome you. I decorated a little tree with lights to symbolize the benevolent spirits surrounding my family. I got nine ornamental globes and a star to represent the nine spheres on the tree of life or the nine Netcharu (guardian spirits) who are focused on our success. I also purchased a red and gold garland to represent our grandfather Rau (Kundalini) and hung it from the top of the star to the bottom of the tree.  Then, I made sure to place a brown cloth as a tree skirt to symbolize what I want to manifest physically into my life for the coming new year.

Oh Hru! Syncretism has never felt so good! So, this year I will start a new tradition by telling my child you Story of how you taught us how to reclaim our throne.

Thank you Hru for helping me to save me.  Anetch Hrak Hru (Salutations Hru)!

Happy Winter SoL-Stice

What Does “Raise Your Vibration/Energy/Conscious” Mean?

9 12 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings)

If you are new to spiritual development/magick you will often hear people say “You have to raise your vibration” or “You need to vibe at a higher frequency.”  Often times, a lot of people (especially seasoned practitioners) who use this term expects everyone to know what this term means but this lingo typically loses a lot of people. So let me explain what this means.

First it must be understood that there are numerous spiritual/magickal systems that exist, which theorize how to spiritually grow and magickally evolve. The two most popular systems are the Tree of Life, which is based upon the belief that metaphysically we all have 12 spheres called sephiroth that correspond to different levels of consciousness.  The second most popular system is the energy system, which is based upon the belief that we all have seven psychic energy centers called chakras.  Now, I have to state a disclaimer so that this is not interpreted literally.  Disclaimer: Please understand that these are the two most popular systems that theorizes how to spiritually.  They are not the only truth.

Taoism & Huna

There are numerous other spiritual systems that exist because as long as man and woman have walked the earth.

Druid Rune System & Ifa Spiritual System

and http://www.runedruid.com/ https://www.pinterest.com/Fasotito/fasotito-memes/

They have pondered the mysteries of the Universe and the human spirit.  So there are numerous systems that exist such as the Druid system, the Yoruba Ifa system, the Huna system, Taoism, Kamta, etc.  This means whichever system you decide to follow, any of these systems will work.  Simply choose the one system that best fits your needs.

Returning to our subject matter at hand, both the sephiroth and the chakra system, along with all of the other spiritual systems correspond with each other because they are based upon universal truths regarding the nature of the human spirit. In other words, all spiritual systems focus on spiritual development through raising one’s consciousness/energy.  This is the reason it does not matter which system you choose, you cannot go wrong.

Therefore, when you hear people say “You have to raise your vibration” or “You need to vibe at a higher frequency.”  Typically they are speaking from a chakra perspective but the reference corresponds and overlaps with other systems, which is the reason most do not explain themselves when saying it.

So what does it mean to raise your vibration/consciousness?

First everyone has their own way of explaining this concept so I am going to explain it from a Kemetic shaman perspective.  To comprehend this you need to understand that there is no such thing as good and bad, or good and evil. There is only Energy, which has a positive and negative charge. In the Kemetic tradition this energy is called Ra, Re or Rau (incorrectly called the sun god, Chi or Ki in Taoism, Prana/Kundalini in the chakra system, etc.).  The two charges are called in the Kemetic tradition Shu (the Taosim Yang) and Tefnut (The Taoism Yin), the so-called god and goddess of air and fire, and moisture.

Shu the Kemetic Yang (left), Ra the Kemetic Chi/Ki (center), Tefnut the Kemetic Yin (right), standing on Maa

If this energy is too Shu (Yang), then it is too hot and dry and burns like an uncontrollable fire.  In this case the energy is not conducive for most life such as life in a desert, hence the northernmost part of Kemet called TaSett (the Red Lands), which was mythologically ruled by Set (the lower self).

If this energy is too Tefnut (Yin), then it is too cold and wet, and floods like an uncontrollable water, thus making it difficult for living conditions as well. This is symbolized as the southernmost part of Kemet which flooded annually called KamTa the Black Lands. This region was symbolized by the white Hedjet crown worn by Osar who was murdered by his younger brother Set due to his naivete.

However, when there is a relatively perfect balance between the Shu (Yang) and the Tefnut (Yin), the burning fire is able to clear enough water to make way for land (earth) and produce life (seeds, etc.). This balance is called Maa, which is personified as the goddess Maat but illustrated as Hru (Heru, Horus) who wears the double white (crown of Osar) and red (crown of Set) together as the Pschent crown.

Hopefully you get the picture that because there is only Energy. Everything that exist in composed of this Energy or the Rau force with two polar opposites (Shu/Yang and Tefnut/Yin) fluctuating to obtain Maa.

Now, it is important to understand that this One Energy exists in everything and manifests itself in everything in different ways but everything also has these same polar opposites that exist within it. For instance, every species on the planet has a Shu (masculine aspect) and a Tefnut (feminine aspect). Even within the species, everything has a Shu and Tefnut, which are all different manifestations of the same Energy.

When this Energy manifests itself In human beings.  If the Energy is too Shu/Yang then human beings are egotistic, selfish, pessimistic, heavy, angry, depressed, fearful, anxious, worrisome, hateful, envious, excessively stressed, etc.  However, if the Energy within human beings is too Tefnut/Yin, then human beings are dreamy because are out of touch with physical reality.  These individuals are so withdrawn from the physical realm that they live their life believing that all they need to do is mediate and/or do rituals. For instance, these are the people who will recognize that they need money and meditate or do a ritual for a job but will not fill out an application or go and look for a job. A lot of people who claim to be spiritual suffer from being too Tefnut, which is the reason most “spiritual people” are financially broke. If our Kemetic ancestors saw us living this way and claiming to be “spiritual” they would correct us and remind us that Kemet was a prosperous nation and that the people lived a prosperous life.

This is because ideally being spiritual means being in balance or Maa. Although Maa is personified as the goddess Maat (Ma’at), the symbolic representation of Maa is Hru (Heru, Horus) after he has overcome his trial and tribulations and ascended to the throne where he wears the double white and red Pschent crown, which is the symbol for Maa and a unified country/spirit.

Therefore, from a Kemetic perspective unless an individual has chosen to live their life as a renunciate (monk, nun, etc.) whereas their physical needs are provided by others.  Being ”spiritual” means living in balance or Maa where you engage in both realities like Hru who stands in the middle of both lands.

From this perspective, raising your vibration/consciousness means to put yourself in a state of alignment, balance or Maa.

How Do You Raise Your Vibration/Energy or Put Yourself in Alignment?

Keeping in mind that everything in our universe is composed of Energy. This means we are all connected to one another and everything by this same Universal Energy. Therefore, everything that exists is composed of energy which vibrates at a specific frequency. By the way, the terms “vibrate” and “vibration” are just a fancy ways of saying your overall being.

Since everything in our universe is composed of energy and therefore vibrates at a particular frequency. When you are being spiritual because you are in a state of alignment or Maa, then you are full of optimism, luck, etc. because everything flows to you because you are vibrating at a frequency that attracts to you whatever you want.

For instance, if you are looking for a mate but you are hanging around family and friends who are constantly bashing the other sex stating that “wo/men ain’t no good!”  Then you will have a hard time finding a mate because you are not in alignment with others who want to find a mate, hence you are out of balance. Therefore, you must change your overall being or vibration by changing the way you feel, think and/or act to get a mate.

There are several ways to change your vibration/energy or align your consciousness with what you want and they are:

  1. Change your thoughts by checking your beliefs and chanting mantras (if possible). Mantras can be a short prayer, sacred words, or a phrase repeated numerous times to generate energy and propel you to a specific goal. If you create your own mantras, be sure they are in the affirmative as if it has already occurred. For instance, I used to be very sarcastic and did not like speaking to people in the morning because I like quietness in the morning. So, when people asked how I was doing. I would quickly respond, “Another Monday” implying that another busy and stressful day like the first day of the week, so my Spirits/Universe made sure that every day was like Monday. To change my thought and how my day would unfold, I started replying “Peaceful and Abundant.” Of course, this generated conversation but it gave me a different vibration and made my day unfold in a very uplifting manner.
  2. Express Gratitude for Things You Appreciate in Your Life. One of the little rituals I like to do is go to sleep saying what I am grateful for. When I awake I am typically upbeat and ready to take on the day. Another little ritual is that when I repeat a mantra for something I want, I express gratitude rather it manifests or not. Another trick that is good for manifesting more money is to smile every time you spend money. Be grateful that you have money to buy food, pay bills, etc.
  3. Consume More Alkaline Foods. This means eating more foods such as nuts, seeds, vegetables, herbs, etc. and drink more water. Be mindful of the seasons and the environment you are in.  Also, remember too much fruit is just as bad as not enough.
  4. Do More Cardiovascular Activities. If you are like me and do not care for aerobics exercises like jogging and running. Try other cardiovascular activities like dancing. Whatever you do, it should be fun and enjoyable.
  5. Practice Maa by Giving to Others who are in need expecting Nothing in Return.

How Are Truly Spiritual People Supposed to Live

27 11 2019

left-human-hand-photo-3025562

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, since the destruction of the Kemetic Library of Alexandria, the suppression of shamanic cultures all around the world and oppression of spiritual societies, humanity has lost all models of how true spiritual men and women or gods and goddesses are supposed to act, behave and live in this physical world of illusion.

We have no real heroes and she-roes, so the enemy tries to give us the ones they think are best for us. Don’t you find it interesting that they are always publicizing films about insurrection and revolution, yet quelling true movements?

Consequently, we have all been given subconscious models (programs) of what “spiritual people” or “heroes and she-roes” are supposed to be by the media, which is actually a ruse from the enemy.  The reason these warped models were given to us, was to discourage us from following the spiritual path.  Sidebar: This is the second way the enemy discourages us from spiritual practices. The first method is to demonize spiritual practices so that we fear them and view them as demonic and evil.

But, the thing that we have to remember is that if the enemy truly wanted us to come into our own and be the spiritual individuals (gods and goddesses) we are supposed to be. They would have publicized the truth about our history and cease demonizing our ancestral spirituality.  They will not because it does not serve their interest which is why we must look beyond the ordinary to see truth.  For instance, If you were like me and raised as a kid in the 1970s you probably were influenced by Kwai Chang Caine, the fictional kung-fu fighting Buddhist monk of the Kung Fu TV series who constantly meditated and walked on rice paper without leaving a footprint. Yes, I am not going to lie, I tried to walk as if I was walking on rice paper.  Hell, it was one of the 36 Chambers you had to pass (Laugh. For you all you old kung fu flicks and Wu Tang fans).

Kwai Chang Caine of the western martial arts TV series Kung Fu

For those raised in the late 1970s, the 1980s through the early 1990s, you probably were mostly influenced by George Lucas’ Jedi order from the Star Wars franchise. With that being the case, the most influential spiritual model would be Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. (BTW, those who were raised during the late 1990s and early 2000s would probably see Neo and Morpheus as spiritual role models but I will not include them in this because the authors of this franchise lost their way in the sequels).

All of these “spiritual” characters are archetypes of what people FEAR about spirituality, which drawn from Western psychology and cultural norms. To be clear, most people new to spiritual culture are under the impression that you must live your life like a Buddhist monk by following 348 ascetics rules, which includes no consuming of alcohol, no sensual misconduct, no consuming of meat, no possession of material objects, and constant meditation to reach enlightenment. Again, this is a ploy created by Set (our Ego/lower self) to discourage us from investing in our own spiritual salvation.  The truth of the matter is that while some spiritual practitioners may follow this ascetic lifestyle. It is not a requirement to be more spiritual. Yes, you heard it here, the ascetic lifestyle is one of the ways to be spiritual but it is not the only way.  There are numerous ways and they are all waiting for you to take your own heroic journey.  Below is the path I outlined based upon the Maa Aankh cosmogram that I had to undergo and continue to follow to some extent. Caution: Any time someone tells you that there is only “one” way, they are priming you for social control. Let’s read, on

The thing about the TRUTH is that the “enemy” cannot keep you from it. The enemy can only create obstacles to prevent you from learning the TRUTH. This is why the TRUTH was originally hidden in libraries because they knew that people are lazy and will not read.  It is the same reason they give an image that being “spiritual” is living an ascetic lifestyle because they know most people would be turned off by ascetic practices.  So, they have to put the TRUTH out and if you look deep enough you will see. That one of the best models of how spiritual people act, behave and live their lives can actually be seen in the Star Wars but to see it.  I need to explain it first.Before we begin, let me say that I am a Star Wars fan from the original trilogy when Lucas was directly influenced by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung’s protégé and famed mythologist Joseph Campbell, the author of a Hero’s Journey and The Hero With A Thousand Faces.  This is before the Star Wars epic was transformed into what it is now, a political agenda medium for social control.

Now, if you watched any of the Star Wars films you know that Obi-Wan Kenobi tells the young protagonist Luke Skywalker that his father Anakin Skywalker was seduced by the dark side of the force and became Darth Vader. So, when you watch the prequels, Episode I, II and III, and you see how Anakin Skywalker was seduced, you see it really wasn’t a seduction. It was that the Jedis truly lost their way and became that which they were against like a lot “spiritual people” do.

Obi Wan Kenobi talking to Luke

I do not want to turn this into a rant about Star Wars or theories about what the new Star War film is going be about.  But my problem with the whole Episodes I, II and III are that the Jedis are supposed to be like Buddhist monks.  For instance, Yoda is 900+ years old and we are led to believe that he and the other Jedis have never had a sexual relationship. Then, here comes Anakin who not only has an intimate relationship with a woman (who is at least ten years older than him. Yep). But, no other Jedi picks up on the fact that this kid is not a virgin. The other thing is that the Jedis didn’t pick up on the fact that Emperor Palpatine was a Sith Lord either and he was sitting right in front of them (Yoda, Obi-Wan, Mace, etc.).

Jedi Counsel

The reason Anakin switched to the dark side and the Jedis could not detect anything was because the Jedi Order had become a religion, and religion is basically a set of established cultural rules that morphs into dogma. Dogma is a tool of your lower self and when you subscribe to a dogma.  You judge others and create prejudices, thus becoming the opposite of what spirituality is.  Isn’t one of the things that “spiritual people” complain about church people is that they judge others and claim to be better than everyone else, yet live by a set of double-standards? Do you see now how the “conscious”, “spiritual” or “woke” concept has been hijacked?

Chancellor Palpatine who later becomes Emperor Palpatine was the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, who reminds us that evil is when you give into your Ego and are blinded by your Ego as the Jedi were.

Now, that being said, as I said earlier, the TRUTH cannot be dismissed. The TRUTH can only be hidden because it will always come out, so the one Jedi that did not adhere totally to the Jedi dogma was the character Qui Quan Jin. (Actually, there was another and her name was Ahsoka Tano but she is not included in the films.)

In Episode I, when Qui Quan Jin finds Anakin and sees that he is a slave. He initially was like sorry for your fate but we got to move on. It wasn’t until he meditated that he decided to help the young Anakin and take him on as an apprentice. When the Jedi Order ruled that Anakin was too old, they were speaking out of fear (dogma) and Qui Quan Jin realized it and said, he would train the kid anyway, hence going against the norm.

It is difficult for a lot of people to see that this character is actually being Spirit-led because we live in a society that is very much against listening to your Spirit, and instead encourages us to follow the whims of our feeling or intellect. This is the reason emphasis is placed on more colorful Jedis and Siths. But, what most people do not understand is that spirituality means following your Spirit particularly your Higher Self instead of your lower-self.  In other words, spirituality is about Fearing Nothing and trusting your Higher Self. It is about moving beyond our conditional subconscious four walls and venturing into the unknown realms of the Spirit.  To quote my Brah Cliff Green of  25, Black & Alive, “In order to grow you have to go above and beyond what you are used too.”

The point that I am making is that a truly spiritual person does not follow the whims of any group, no matter who they claim to be. A truly spiritual person listens to their Spirit and follows the Will of the Spirit, which is scary but you have to trust that the Spirit knows best.

What does this mean specifically? It means to follow what the Divine tells you from within. I know a lot of people don’t want to hear this but you do not have to be a vegetarian or vegan to be spiritual. If the Spirit tells you that you should be vegetarian or vegan, then so be it but doing it because everyone else is doing it is not following the Spirit. Vegetarianism and veganism are some of the new dogmatic religions that are preventing us from unifying nowadays. As soon as a vegetarian or vegan hears that a person eats pork, they immediately turn their nose up like the Jedi did to young Anakin. In fact, I have seen a lot of “spiritual people” who are so health-conscious turn their nose up to people who have any illnesses such as diabetes and so on. That’s not spiritual, is it? Meanwhile, people who claim not to be spiritual are more helpful to others regardless of their conditions, decisions and health status.

Some of us even look down at people who have chemicals or had perm their hair, thus making spirituality superficial. This is not spiritual, this is that same church mentality of old.

The simple truth is that if you want to be spiritual all you have to do is start listening to your Higher Self, which will lead you to do things that subconsciously you are not comfortable with, thus helping you to fight against your Ego, lower self or what is called in the Kemetic tradition as Set.  This is what is meant by being in the world but not of the world, which is why Hru sits in the center of the Mat Aankh and wears both the White and Red double Pschent Crown. It should also be noted that the astrological symbol for Hru and the Sun is a circle with dot in the center, which is another allusion to that spirituality is heroic.

Now, this does not mean that you subscribe to everything that someone does. It simply means you do for you and let others do what they think is best for them.  For instance, I do not eat pork but I am not going to unfriend someone and tell them that they are going to go to hell because they eat pork. That’s for them to decide for themselves, not me!

The enemy has tricked us into believing that we must save the world. No. Truly spiritual people are not here to save the world because the world does not need to be saved. This is an illusion created by religious groups to win the souls and minds of people.  We are here to save ourselves and help others who want to be saved help themselves. That’s it. We need to stop subscribing to this religious dogmatic thinking or said another way, stop superimposing our old Christian and Islamic beliefs on to spirituality.

The cool thing is that once we do this, we will really go far and write our own heroic (Hru) journey because we choose God/Goddess (The Spirit) as our role model.

3 Ways to Make Magick Work

17 11 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

If you ever talk to someone who has used magick successfully they will tell you that magick is both a science and an art. Magick is a science in the sense that everything that is used as a scientific explanation. For instance, the use of herbs, candles, oils, incense, etc. The purpose of altars, the belief systems, the different levels of trance (beta, alpha, theta, etc.), and so on.  These all have an effect upon our subconscious mind, which is all based upon scientific reasoning. However, everyone who practices magick will not get the same results because we all have different beliefs, different backgrounds, different perspectives, and therefore different ways of manifesting the change we desire. These differences is what makes it difficult for western scientists to study magick because western science is based upon measurable observable facts according to our five physical senses. Magick is as dynamic and as unique as we are so it will never produce the same physical results all the time, and this is what makes magick an art. It is also the reason why serious practitioners of magick devote so much time to strengthening their mental skills through spiritual development.

By the way, all true magi know that magick is both a science and art and should be able to explain this (the science and art aspect of magick).

It should be noted that since Judaism, Christianity and Islam destroyed the ancient schools and libraries of magick, and most of the shamanic societies.  Contemporary magis have had to take alternative paths to learn magick, which involved them obtaining college degrees.  Understand, that the reason many contemporary magis, like the priests and priestesses of old, have college degrees in secular systems is that one of the advantages of a college education is that it makes individuals develop self-control and self-discipline.  This self-control and self-discipline or will-power is necessary to be successful in practicing magick.  However, the reason many college-educated individuals practice magick is that they understand the limitations of our physical science and physical reality, which is influenced by metaphysically or magickally.

So, if magick has unpredictable results because it is dynamic, the question that comes to mind (especially to those who are new to this discipline) is how does it work and why do so many people continue to practice?

First there is a saying that you should remember, which is that:

“God allows everyone to perform a magickal act (or a miracle) once,
just to show them that it is possible.”  

I am telling you this because you should look back in your life and see if you can find a magickal or miraculous event that took place, which defied regular logic. If you study this event, you will uncover a lot of secrets about how magick works and how your style or art of magick works. For instance, I have several examples but the one event that took place in my life and helped me to realize how magick work was my $3K goal.

I was at a decent job. It was just a job that I had stumbled upon which allowed me to catch up on my bills and get enough money to eventually go back to college. When I say that it was just a job, I really mean that I didn’t like it at all because it was so beneath me. It was a dead-end job that I really had no future in.  So, one day while studying how magick works and just trying it out I stated, “I want $3,000.”

Now I can’t remember if I repeated this several times or turned it into a mantra. All I know is that I did ask for $3K and then I totally forgot that I even made the request.

So, every morning, I dragged myself out of bed to go to my dead-end job. Like I said, it wasn’t a bad job but it was beneath my potential. I did my job efficiently and helped people at the plant but I just felt as if I could be doing so much more.  Like most people going to a job they really don’t like, I found myself saying, “I don’t want to go to work” or “I wish I did not have to go to work.” Yeah, those of you who know how magick can already see how I was setting myself up.

Now, again I am not sure of the timeline but it was probably a month or so later that the plant manager came in one day and closed his office door.  Then, he began calling people to his office one by one. I was one of those individuals whom he called, and what he told me was that they had to downsize the plant so my job was being phased out because it was not needed anymore.

Yep! I got laid off.

It was my first time ever getting laid off from a job so of course, all I kept thinking was “What did I do to deserve this?” and “Why me?”  Shortly after, the other thoughts of depression kicked in which were how was I going to pay my bills now? How was I going to eat? What was I going to do? Now I am probably not painting a true picture of how I was feeling but my anxiety was high which, kicked me into survival mode of thinking, “I gotta get another job!” Naturally, I started regretting complaining about my job.

Then one day I looked at my bank account and found that over three thousand dollars had been deposited from my old job. That’s when it hit me, that I had asked for $3K a little while ago.

Now, that event taught me a lot of lessons that are still with me today.

Lesson ONE:

It showed me that in order for the magick to manifest $3K. It looked for the easiest way to manifest my goal, which was for me to get laid off.  Let me say that again, the magick looked for the easiest way to manifest my desire of getting $3K, which was for me to get laid off.

This made me realize that the intelligence behind this event was Spirits but because they do not have a physical body. They cannot distinguish between what is right or wrong, good or bad, etc. because they lack the ability to physically feel. Therefore, when I put the request for $3K out there, my Spirits did not use reason. They simply followed how I felt.

Now, some people might not say Spirits and would prefer to say the Universe. Whatever the case, the Universe did not use logical reason or did not understand that I did not want to be laid off. It simply understood that I wanted $3K and saw that the easiest way was for me to get laid off.

So we have to remember that the Spirits/Universe are vast and it is our intentions that help to focus all of this energy to a single point.  (See Why I Said “F*** the Universe” to Manifest What I Want!”)

Lesson TWO:

If the Spirits/Universe saw that the easiest way for me to get $3K was by being laid off. Then, the Spirits/Universe has no limitations, which means They/It could have seen that the easiest way for me to get the money was through various means such as a relative passing and I get the money via inheritance. I could have been in a car accident and got the money that way.  I could have found a lottery ticket. I could have been involved in a failed bank robbery.  I could have been in a lawsuit where I broke my leg and got the money that way. Do you see all of the ways I could have got the money? Notice that to the Spirits/Universe there are no good and bad ways because the Spirits/Universe does not think in this manner since it is not physically restricted.

This made me realize the power of words and how I have to be specific in the future so that there is no ambiguity, whenever I am submitting a request.  For instance, if you want to improve your business. You have to specifically say increase my business sales by having people buy a product. If you want to improve your health you have

Lesson THREE:

Since the Spirits/Universe does not see life as good and bad or good and evil.  An undesirable event is the result of poor planning and submitting of your request.  However, even negative events will work in your favor. Remember, I was laid off, which seemed like at the time a bad thing but I look at it now and see that the reason I was laid off was that I did not state how I wanted the $3K to manifest. This was my poor planning. This put my Spirits/Universe in the position to make a decision for me.  I know now that when it comes to submitting a request to say if I want $3K indicate the source, such as a bonus, the lottery, food sales, etc. because if not the Spirits/Universe will decide. However, know that whatever decision that the Spirits/Universe will make, even if it produces an undesirable effect will still be in my favor.

Please note:  Since I am Kemetic, I like to use Kemetic analogies and metaphors to remind me of how the Spirits/Universe function. Because Osar (Asar, Ausar) is a Lord of Agriculture, I like to think of the things we want to manifest as seeds and/or fruit.  So, the Spirits/Universe will only give you what you want based on its availability or in season like fruit.

For instance, if you were making a fruit salad. You would not request for summer fruits like watermelon and pineapple during the winter months. This is because typically these fruits are available during the summer, so the Spirits/Universe will give you what is available or in season. If it is not in season, then the Spirits/Universe will give you the best equivalent to your requests like canned pineapple or GMO watermelon.  So, if you do not want the alternative, then you have to wait, be patient and have faith knowing that the Spirits/Universe are moving things in your favor.

What Does It Mean to Honor Your Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way?

10 09 2019

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I am writing this post because I have received a few questions in regards to what it really means to honor your ancestors in the Kemetic Shaman way.  So, I will try not to make this too long but before explaining how to Honor Your Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way, what needs to be understood about African American spirituality is that it is uniquely different from Caribbean, Latin American spirituality and African spirituality, because the African American experience was not like any other.

As I have mentioned before when the Africans were brought to the Americas. Most of the Africans taken to Cuba, Haiti and Brazil were fortunate enough to smuggle some of their ancestral artifacts, which allowed them to transplant their religious beliefs into the “New World.”  As a result, when these Africans taken to the Spanish and Portuguese (and eventually French) controlled territories. They were able to syncretize their indigenous religious beliefs with the predominant European faith Roman Catholicism to create Lukumi (also known as Santeria), Vodun, Palo Mayombe, Candomble, Macumba, Umbanda and so on.  Consequently, these Africans were able to continue their religious beliefs and practices relatively undisturbed, which is termed La Regla (Spanish meaning “religious” Rule).

But, the Africans taken to North America did not have the same luck because the Europeans and Euro-Americans in the British controlled New World were Protestants.  This made it virtually impossible for those Africans who had an elaborate pantheon such as the Akan, Yoruba, Fon, etc. to syncretize their religious beliefs with no saints. Also, unlike the Africans taken to the Caribbean and South America countries, whose oppressors tried to justify the enslavement of Africans by forcing them to convert to Catholicism. The Protestants in North America for the longest time refused to Christianize the Africans in North America, out of fear that the concept of spiritual salvation would be confused with physical liberation.  This along with the fact, that many of the people from the Kongo-Angolan region were Christian or at least familiar with the Christian faith prior to the advent of the slave trade. Made it possible for many of the Africans taken to North America to practice their spiritual beliefs undisturbed based upon their ancestral recollection.

Consequently, most of the Africans in North America after relying upon their ancestral memories were able to syncretize their beliefs (as best as possible) with the indigenous populations’ beliefs and the fragmented Protestant Christianity teachings they received, to create a spirituality with no rule called in Spanish Sin la Regla (Without “religious” Rule).

Basically, what this meant was that African American spirituality developed and evolved out of trial and error.  If something did not work it was abandoned, but if it worked was incorporated and passed to succeeding generations.

Now, when Hippolyte Leon Denizard Rivail (Oct. 3, 1804 – March 31, 1869) or  Allan Kardec’s Spiritism began to spread throughout the western world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Never Forget

Since the Caribbean and South America already had a La Regla (a strong religious foundation along with the Roman Catholic framework) in place. It was relatively simple for Spiritism to be organized and to flourish, which is the reason there are strong Spiritism traditions that can be found in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Brazil, Haiti and so on.  In North America, particularly the United States, the lack of a strong religious rule combined with attacks from the Protestant churches, prevented Spiritism from organizing and flourishing as it had done elsewhere.  However, these obstacles did not totally stop Spiritism from influencing spirituality in the United States.  It did, however, cause (quiet as kept) both the Holiness and the Pentecostal Movement to adopt, pervert and repackage concepts of the Spiritist doctrine as their own.

Consequently, most of us in the United States have been shunned by the horror film industry and the religious community from learning anything about spirits . When we ask questions about spirits, most preachers, evangelists, missionaries, theologians, etc. will try their best to discourage us from inquiring about the subject. Whenever we are in church and we witness someone get filled with the holy ghost or holy spirit. We are taught that it is not the same as possession (which it is) and that it is evidence of God, while other religions and traditions that practice spirit possession are of the devil.

Now. If you are reading this it probably because you are at a crossroad as to what to believe and all I can tell you is this. I was at a similar crossroad once upon a time at my life and a very interesting thought came to me, which was. If everyone in the church was filled with the Spirit of God, why haven’t these peoples’ lives changed? Why haven’t their communities been upgraded or improved, if according to scripture they should be renewed?  The answer that came back to me was that because these people refuse to educate themselves about the nature of spirits. Most do not know that they are possessing low ancestral spirits masquerading as “holy ghosts.” This is what made me learn about Spiritism.

Since our spirituality exists Sin La Regla (Within Any Rule), the man who introduced me to Spiritism was an old Cuban man whom I called Papa.  Papa basically taught me that Espiritisimo has no rules and goes according to how you feel. Following Papa’s advice and after communicating with my ancestors and spirits.  It was revealed to me that the Story of Osar (Asar, Osiris) was an allegory about ten tribal clans who once lived in Kemet who were immortalized. These ten clans were: Osar, Djahuti, Maat, Hru, Hru Aakhuti, Oset, Nebhet, Sokar, Npu and Set.Since our spirituality exists Sin La Regla (Within Any Rule), which means essentially no one has the right to tell us what is right or wrong, truth or untruth.  It is all about what produces the desired results and the man who introduced me to this aspect of Spiritism was an old Cuban man whom I called Papa.  Papa basically taught me that Espiritisimo has no rules and goes according to how you feel. Following Papa’s advice and after communicating with my ancestors and spirits.  It was revealed to me that the Story of Osar (Asar, Osiris) was an allegory about ten tribal clans who once lived in Kemet who were immortalized. These ten clans were: Osar, Djahuti, Maat, Hru, Hru Aakhuti, Oset, Nebhet, Sokar, Npu and Set.

  1. Osar symbolizes our main spirit guide who coordinates all of the other guides. As far as I can tell, this guide is responsible for the synchronicity occurring in our life. Our Osar symbolizes our Higher Consciousness, which is also why he is identified with the Superconscious.
  2. Djahuti symbolizes the spirit guide that gives us messages intuitively via clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, etc.
  3. Maat symbolizes the spirit guide who teaches us and helps us to bring balance and order in our life by learning from karmic experiences.
  4. Hru Aakhuti symbolizes our protective guide who shields us from danger seen and unseen.
  5. Sokar symbolizes our healing spirit guide. This is the spirit guide who taught me the ritual that helped me to walked when I was unable to do so years ago. I will talk about this a little later down below.
  6. Hru symbolizes our justice-seeking spirit guide that fights for what we want, justice and what we believe is right.
  7. Nebhet symbolizes our creative spirit guide
  8. Npu is our gatekeeper guide that opens and closes doors for us.
  9. Oset (Aset/Isis) is our helper guide who will bring other spirits in to assist us with whatever we need help with.

In addition, we also have aakhu or ancestor spirits who are our deceased blood relatives and/or people we may have known or may have known us from past lives, etc.

Again, without going too much into detail, together these nine tribal clans symbolize a unified consciousness within us. Since Set usurped the throne of Osar and created chaos throughout Kemet by destroying the unity among the clans.

  1. Set is the name used to symbolize our lowest (ego) nature, which is why he is personified as our lower consciousness and our subconscious. The aapepu (misguided, confused, chaotic ancestral spirits) symbolize our skeletons in the closes sort of speak.

I have found that building a rapport with our spirit guides is very helpful for numerous reasons, too many to mention.  For instance, as most of you know, my person was diagnosed with lupus and there was a time when I literally could not walk. It was so painful that I could not even stand to go to the restroom.  Enters my Sokar. I do not even know how I got the idea but all I know is that my Sokar came to me in the form of icon Lazarus. The ritual that was shared with me was to buy a Lazaro (Saint Lazarus) statue and promise to take his crutches away if he helped me to walk.  I was also inspired to dance, which is an activity that the Yoruba orisha Babaluaiye (who is syncretized with Saint Lazarus and Sokar) was fond of.  Now, I had done the ritual maybe for a couple of days, I can’t remember now. All I know is that one day, there was a leak in my basement and I found myself running up and down the stairs. I think after the seventh time of running down the stairs, that’s when it dawned on me that I was walking. So, now I continue to honor my Sokar with a Lazaro statue.

So, Honoring the Kemetic Shaman way refers to seeing the Kemetic energies/spirits within and outside of you. Family. Kemet is alive and well because it is within us who have been called to this path. Don’t get caught up in the Hotep Game thinking that you have to have Egyptian artifacts to be on the Kemetic path.  Your  Mind-Spirit does not know the difference between color, ethnicity and creed.  You have to understand that these are energies and because we are a microcosm of a Great Macrocosm, these energies exist outside and within us.  To honor the Kemetic Shaman Way is to work the Spirit from the Kemetic perspective.  For instance,  Maat doesn’t always manifest herself rocking a single feather headdress. I know a lot of people who will tell you that their Maat has come to them as a Native American spirit or even as an indigenous African spirit. You never know, but this is the reason you have to build a rapport with your ancestors and guides.

Hope that helps.

Why I Said, “F*** the Universe!” to Manifest What I Want

4 08 2019

Fuck the Universe/God/Spirits

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

One of my favorite actions movies from back in the day is Conan the Barbarian starring Arnold Schwarzenegger because it is packed with all sorts of metaphysical references and Arnold doesn’t speak a lot. (BTW my favorite Schwarzenegger movie is the first Terminator because he only has a few lines.) Anyway, one of the best parts of the Conan film is the Battle of the Mounds, where Conan and his friend Subitai are grossly outnumbered by Thulsa Doom’s henchmen, which are Set followers.  As the henchman surround Conan he says the following prayer to his god Crom: 

“Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad, Why we fought or why we died. No, all that matters is that two stood against many. That’s what’s important. Valor pleases you, Crom, so grant me one request – Grant me revenge!  And if you do not listen, then the Hell with you!”

This battle scene and prayer stayed in my mind because when I first started on this path.  I remember reading book after book that talked about the power of the subconscious. I remember meditating and doing all of these rituals to improve my life but, my life continued to get progressively worse because for years as a child. I was taught to put everything in God’s hands. Even though I did not consider myself to be a church going person, my mind subconsciously was still in the church and heavily believed that everything occurs according to God’s will so long as I surrendered to it.

Then one night, I was airlifted to the hospital because I was having trouble breathing. My chest had been hurting and I was having flu symptoms but the Nyquil I had been drinking on the regular just was not cutting it. So when they sent me to the hospital this time to see a specialist, I knew it was more serious than expected.  As I laid on the gurney in the hospital pondering if I were going to live or die, I thought about just giving up and putting my life in God’s hands.

Just the thought sounded cool and would be a great relief but, when the physician returned after doing test and diagnosed my body with having systemic lupus.   I thought how after learning about ancestors and spirits, I still basically believed in putting my trust in God. It was just changed from God to putting my trust in the Spirits.  I noticed that when The Secret and the Law of Attraction became big, I like a lot of people replaced God and/or Spirits with the Universe, but all-in-all. It still boiled down to me putting my faith in God/the Spirits/the Universe or fate and expecting everything is going to work out.

But being diagnosed with lupus and putting my life in God’s hands meant that I would have to settle for whatever happened. This meant that if the physician came back and told me that I only had a few more hours, days, weeks, months or years to live. Then I would have to accept that.

Wondering if I should surrender, like Conan I declared instead ““F*** this s***!”

I was not going to settle for living in a pitiful situation. I was not going to put my life in fate’s hands, so as I said, “F*** the Universe/Spirits!”

F*** the Universe

Ancestors decloaking like predators in Predator 2.

I remember after I said it, that is when my ancestors and spirit guides appeared like the predators did to Danny Glover in Predator 2, as if they were waiting for me to break through the veil.

I have told this story numerous times and the reason I continue to tell it is because for some of us life has to get real gritty for us to say “Enough!”

This is because for many of us raised in the church who have been taught to surrender to God. We have been taught that surrendering means not fighting for what you want and not getting angry. So, a lot of us having these warped ideas about surrendering have superimposed these fluffy bunny ideas onto our spirituality. Consequently, we think that spirituality is all about meditating, praying and chanting OM but, when we people start walking over us or we get passed by. Then, we wonder why are we being treated this way after loving everyone and surrendering to the Higher Power.

It is because sometimes you have to shake your fist at the heavens and even give God the finger. Sometimes you got to do the most vileness thing to make God/the Spirits/the Universe turn Its (Their) head in your direction.

Why? Well, I learned it is because God or the Spirits do not have a physical body, which means they do not feel, smell, hear, taste or physically see.  This is why in most spiritual lore it is said that the netcharu, orishas, simbis, gods and goddesses, angels, etc. are very far removed from this physical plane.  This is very eloquent way of saying that these entities don’t give a damn what happens to you because it is not affecting them in their plane of existence.

F*** the Universe/Gods

Clash of the Titans (1981) Zeus manipulating the life of a human being at will like a mold of clay.

The thing about these elevated spirits is that they do not need to reincarnate back to this physical plane because they exist completely on energy now. Some of these Spirits are so far removed that they do not even remember why we (the living) need food, money or water, which is the reason they are slow on answering prayers. By the way, this is the main reason most people around the world appeal to the Ancestors because they are recently removed and more sympathetic to our needs. Most of the elevated spirits do not even remember the crap that we (the living) have to endure on this physical plane because they are energy. This is a hard pill for a lot of people to swallow but think of it this way. Does electricity care who it shocks or fire care who it burns?   No, because they are energy. 

Now, that being said, we must remember that we are human beings and not animals. What’s the difference? The difference between human beings and animals is that the former decides what they want to do, while the other is commanded to live a certain way by nature. For instance, if we were animals like flies, then we would only live from the spring through the fall months, but we are human beings and we wanted to live the entire season, so the universe obliged. The ability to make a decision and the powers of the universe support our decision is proof that we are Gods and Goddesses but some wants us to believe that our free will is curse. They want us to worship these gods and goddesses.  I say let these people continue to be tossed and turned by the sea of life but I had enough of it, which is why I stopped worshipping god and started invoking.

So, when it comes to surrendering to the God/the Spirits/the Universe (whatever you choose to call the higher power), it simply means trusting that whatever higher power knows more than you, and if you do not like how your life has unfolded. It means most likely that who or what you surrendered to doesn’t know what they hell it is doing because you did not give It/God/the Spirits/the Universe any directions or a goal to focus on.

If you’re mad! Good because it means you will not forget this formula.

You are supposed to surrender your know how to God/the Spirits/the Universe. Meaning, you impress what it is that you want but let God/the Spirits/the Universe work out the details on how to get what you want.

For instance, if you do a ritual/spell for money and “trust” that the God/the Spirits/the Universe is going to do right by you. Then, you might get laid off from the job like I did one time after requesting $3K. Yeah, I got the $3K as part of the severance pay because the God/the Spirits/the Universe has a sense of humor, which I did not find funny at the time. So, how do we put some guidelines on that? I should have said help me to get $3K through a particular medium such as lottery, selling old jewelry, self-employment, etc.  

  1. Stop assuming the God/the Spirits/the Universe know what you want.
  2. Be clear as to what you want and declare it.
  3. After you have clearly defined your goals, now trust that God/the Spirits/the Universe will work out the details on how to manifest it.

What Does It Mean to Live Kemetically?

18 07 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

As of March 2012, we have been in the Age of Aquarius, which abruptly began with a down pouring of information being made available all over the world due to the Internet.  As a result, a lot of people are interested in Kemetic spirituality and want to know what does it mean to live Kemetically.  The great thing about this particular time is that there are no limits to the information we can gain access to. For instance, historical records, reports and all sorts of documentation are just a few fingertips away as knowledge is made accessible to everyone.

However, the bad thing about this particular time is that there are no limits to the information we can gain access to. With all of these historical records, reports and all sorts of documentation just being a few fingertips away, there is no wisdom to assist in interpreting the new information.

What a lot of people do not understand is that we have a Ba (Superconscious), Ab (Conscious/Soul) and a sahu (subconscious). And, that most of our problems in life are due to the subconscious or sahu part of our being indiscriminately recording everything that we experience. This means that if you hear something or read something without having any wisdom about the subject, your sahu will automatically accept the information as absolute truth.

For the record, the reason the planet is in peril today is that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have all been interpreted by individuals who had access to the knowledge but no wisdom. Consequently, metaphorical stories and parables are interpreted literally. For instance, from an alchemic, esoteric and metaphysical perspective, God created Adam and Eve in Its image because God being masculine and feminine really loved Their image and wanted to ensure that Man and Woman had all of its power. So, Man was created to be the Light and Woman was created to be the Receptacle of the Light. As above, the masculine energy is the Sun and feminine energy is the Moon. So below, the masculine is fire, positive and light, while the feminine is water, negative and dark. All the while the all-knowing God allows the serpent to exchange the power between the two immortal beings.

It is the lack of wisdom that inspired fundamentalists to let the sahu part of their being to see the serpent as the devil who tempts Eve to seduce Adam, thereby bringing the downfall of humanity. It is this same lack of cognizance that makes these individuals see masculine energy as being strong and good and feminine energy as weak and evil. Thus, justifying the oppression, suppression, and persecution of women, and all religious and spiritual traditions invested in the mysteries of the divine feminine or lunar cults (e.g. earth-based religions, spiritualism practice, etc.).

Family. Some people in our community (Hoteppers) claim to be versed in Kemetic spiritual practices because they have read some books on Kemetic history, metaphysics, etc., and it had a strong positive impact on them. For this reason I am glad that it helped them.  Please understand that adorning yourself from head to toe with Egyptian symbols and having an extensive library full of Kemetic books is not knowledge and does not mean they are versed in Kemetic spirituality. This simply means that you are informed and aware of other authors’ (typically biased western trained archeologists, historians, philosophers, and fanatics) beliefs, ideas and theories. But if you have no wisdom because you are not applying any of the information that you receive to see if it is beneficial or not. Then you are doing the same disservice as religious fundamentalists have and continue to do by simply spouting off information to make yourself appear to be “deep”.  This is just a few steps away from beating people over the head as the fanatics have done with the Bible and Koran.  If you have to argue with another to make them see your point of view, then you are trying to convert them and that is pure evil.  Thus, indicating that you are following in the footsteps of Set and not Osar (Osiris). 

Set (Set-an or Satain) is the Kemetic devil. why symbolizes the worst aspects of our ego-self.

Anyone who practices Kemetic spirituality will tell you that you do not convert to Kemetic spirituality based upon the acceptance of certain beliefs and theories. This is because we are not trying to save people’s souls from going to hell. You convert or rather you are initiated into Kemetic spirituality through the transformation of your mind.  In other words, you are “saved” because you learn how to “save” yourself from certain dilemmas through divination, meditation, prayer, magick, ritual work, etc.  

The information we receive during this age is supposed to be life-changing. If you have a room full of books but you and your family are not spiritually and physically abundant. Then, you are not taking advantage of this Age appropriately. If you are engrossed in the current affairs, social affairs, and do not see these all as distractions to discourage you from coming into your GOD or GODDESS-NESS. Then you are not living Kemetically.

Please understand that I am not by any means stating that these things are not important. What I am saying is that if you claim to practice Kemetic spirituality then we do these things differently than the norm, like receive counsel through divination on major issues. We discuss matters with our ancestors and spirit guides to determine if someone or something is beneficial to our family or not. We perform magick in every area of our life because we understand that as Children of God that it is our right to do so.

If you are going to live Kemetically. Understand that all books are guides, which are instruments of Npu meaning they are simply meant to get you in the door alchemical, esoteric and metaphysical door. They open the door or present to you another world, but to live Kemetically you got to put down the book and work ‘dem Spirits.

3 Points About “Consciousness (WOKE)” that is missed!

12 07 2019
3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed

There’s a lot of talk about being “conscious/woke” but what I have found is that there 3 points about “consciousness (woke).”  That is missed because a lot of people really do not understand what it really means to be conscious.  So here is my two cents based upon my experience of walking this path:

3 points about "consciousness (woke)" that is missed is that you should be in balance with the Universe/Spirits or Maat
The guardian spirit Maat who symbolizes alignment or balance with the Universe is the first sign of consciousness

The First Point About Consciousness that is Missed

The first point out of the 3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed is that many do not understand that consciousness means being in alignment with the Universe/Spirits.  Another word for alignment is a balance, which is symbolized in the Kemetic tradition by the guardian spirit Maat who balances the feather of truth on her head.

When you are in alignment with the Universe/Spirits, things flow to you almost effortlessly.

Warning:

This does not mean that there is no room for error or for things to go wrong.  This also does not mean you do not have to do any work to get what you want.  It simply means that you put a request out into the ether and the Universe/Spirits heard it and are fulfilling your request.

The Second Point about Consciousness that is Missed

The second point out of the 3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed is being conscious means being aware that the Universe/Spirits do not function or operate according to human time.  Time is a human concept that was created to help us put things in order, but the Universe/Spirits do not function or operate according to our time.  The Universe/Spirits operate according to universal cycles of nature.  As it is stated in Ecclesiastes 3, “To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heavens.”

Therefore, being “conscious (woke)” also means understanding that when you put forth a request and it does not manifest yet. It might be because what you are asking for is not in “season.”   I have heard it put another way, that you ordered something off the Universal menu but presently they are out of stock.

This is one of those points that many of us struggle with (myself included) because we are bombarded with ideas and notions in western culture.  That when we want something, we should have anything and everything we want right now!  We need to remind ourselves that there is a time and place for everything., which is one of the reasons I use the Maa Aankh (left).  The interesting thing is that technology makes it more difficult for us to remember that there is a season for everything.

For instance, because of technology, we find summer fruits like cantaloupe and watermelons in the grocery stores during winter months. Or, we may be tempted to consume a lot of winter warming foods like nuts and berries during the summer.

If we remember that everything has its’ season we will see that reason animals like squirrels stock up on nuts and why nuts are in abundance during the winter months is because it is their season.  Winter corresponds to the midnight, cooling and rebirthing nature of the Amun Ra moment.

The same goes for melons being in abundance during the summer months, which are used to help cool the body.  Summer corresponds to the midday, lively (active) and fiery nature of the Ra moment (see What is Kamta?).

So, if you asked for something and it has not manifested yet, remember that it might not be in season or time.  Simply keep your faith and keep your request on your heart.


3 points about "consciousness (woke)" that is missed is that you should be in alignment

  • Khepera (in KiKongo Kala), which symbolizes Sunrise,  Birth, East, Spring, Children, the color black, etc.
  • Ra (in KiKongo TuKula), which symbolizes Midday Sun, Life, South, Summer, Adolescence and Adults, vitality, the color red, etc.
  • Ra Atum (in KiKongo Luvemba), which symbolizes Sunset, Death, West, Fall, Elders, the color white, etc.  
  • Amun Ra (in KiKongo Musoni), which symbolizes Midnight (when the sun is believed to be on the other side), North, Winter, Ancestors/Spirit Guides, the color yellow, etc.  

The Third Point About Consciousness that is Missed

The third point out of the 3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed is a real big one, and it involves trusting your intuition

When you are conscious things (ideas, hunches, etc.)  come to you, so you have to learn to trust your intuition. The biggest obstacle to your prayers being answered and/or your magick manifesting is yourself – in particular, your lower self. This is because this western society that we live has taught us since birth to trust only in what we can assess (measure) with our five physical senses. So, for a lot of us, our intuitive faculty has atrophied because we stopped using it as soon as we enter grade school and was told to stop daydreaming so much. Consequently, many of us will receive an intuitive idea but will not act on it because we want physical proof.

This, unfortunately, is the reason a lot of people who allege to be “woke” are very informed when it comes to history, social issues, politics, current affairs, etc. but lack spiritual insight and direction because they have no spiritual practice. These people are known as great “intellectual masturbators” because they literally “get off” by spouting a bunch of information and humiliating others who have not read and/or cannot debate as well as they can. If these individuals would follow their intuition and listen to the Universe/Spirits, they would know that everyone is not at the same level spiritually, so it is foolish to debate with others based upon information because it is simply a matter of opinion.  In other words, what most of these “hotep” debaters are arguing about is a subjective truth, which is based upon personal experience.   As the saying goes, “all roads lead to heaven,” which means regardless of what path a person takes, they will eventually find Truth.

3 points about "consciousness (woke)" that is missed you receive assistance from your ancestors and spirit guides
Aakhu (Ancestors and Spirit Guides) assist us in being Conscious “Woke” by Helping Us to Understand the Signs

Trusting your intuition means just that “trusting your intuition.”  Some of us have a difficult time trying to distinguish if the voices we hear our own head, our ancestors and spirit guides, etc.  (See: How to Distinguish When Your Guardian Spirits Are Speaking) Again, I know it is a challenge because we have also been influenced by the horror film industry and/or the horrors of “blind faith (aka just put your trust in Jesus and everything will be alright)” in the Church. The good thing is that the Universe/Spirits never give intuitive information without first giving you a sign. This is one of the reasons why the ancestors are so important to truly conscious people.

Our aakhu (ancestors and spirit guides) were once human beings so they know how hard it is to put your faith in something without having a lot of reasons to do so. So, understand your ancestors and spirit guides will give you signs.  (see Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way).

You will not know “the science” of why something works because it is based upon esoteric sciences (see The Kamta Primer). For instance, no one really knows what the ancestors and spirit guides do with the food, drink, spirit money and other offerings that are offered to them because they have no physical body, so technically they have no use for these things.

We are told that they consume the essence of these offerings, which is sufficient for them but if you are a rational mind person, part of you still wants to know what the hell does that mean “consume the essence.” This is when you must stop yourself because you are about to go down another intellectual rollercoaster that is going to derail your prayer/magick. For the record, that part of your being that is intentionally and unintentionally sabotaging your efforts is your Set (lower self).

Simply trust your intuition and listen to your aakhu. Know that the Universe/Spirits would not tell you to do something that is going to harm yourself or others. Remember, the Universe/Spirits know you inside and out, so they know what you are ready to accept based upon your beliefs and will never force you to do anything. It is always about free will.

When you keep these three points in mind and begin to exercise your spirituality. This is when you really begin to become conscious and you cease worrying as much.  You know that everything, for the most part, is going to work out for the best but remember. You still have to do your part and fulfill your destiny (see The Kamta Primer) but, you have ancestors and spirit guides who walk with you so that you are not alone (see Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way).

Why They Don’t Want You to Honor Your Ancestors

10 07 2019


Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Did you know that in John 14:6; Hebrews 8:6l 9:15; 12:24 and 1 Timothy 2:5-6 that the bible tells us that there is only one mediator and that it is Jesus.   The bible also states in Luke 16:19-31;  2 Corinthians 5:6; Hebrews 9:27; and Revelations 20:11-15, that when people die they do not inhabit this world but they go to either heaven or hell.

What the bible fails to explain to us how we will know if our deceased loved ones have ascended to heaven or descended to hell.  The bible fails to explain to us why we see our deceased loved ones in our dreams and why some people have even reported that their deceased loved ones have come to them and given them warnings.

What most theologians gloss over and also fail to explain is why in Matthew 17:3, which states that Jesus went up to the mountain to Pray, while there  the disciples saw him speaking to Moses and Elijah who had long been dead (Jesus’ ancestors), when he came down, they saw no one with him, but Jesus reassured them and told them not to tell anyone what they had seen until he had risen from the dead.

It appears that the reason the bible fails to explain these phenomenon and other spiritual occurrences is either because they do not want us to truly be like Jesus who talked to his ancestors (Moses and Elijah) and/or they want us to be totally submissive to their religious dogma. Part of the reason most theologians gloss over this particular scripture is that it makes Jesus a human being with similar concerns as most of us, who talk to his ancestors for guidance and wisdom.

For the record, the Ancestors are not worshipped, they are honored and venerated.  The only reason ancestor honoring or ancestor veneration is called “ancestor worship” is because when the first Europeans encountered the practice among most non-Western cultures.  The Western culture fear of death and view that death is evil, made them assume that the African, Chinese, Japanese, Native American and other cultures that venerate their dead had a fascination with death, and demonized and branded the practice as “ancestor worship”.  Even when other Europeans engaged in ancestor veneration or a similar practice as the Roman Catholics who pray to the dead saints or have relics (skeletal remains) of famous apostles, they completely ignore it possibly because they are Europeans.

What these Europeans missed, if they were not so consumed in their ethnocentric views, is that the cultures that venerate their ancestors have a strong family bond and respect for one’s parents, grandparents, elders, and ancestors.  This is because ancestor veneration is proof that death is not to be feared because it is not the end.  Then again, maybe they wanted to miss this fact to encourage family dissension.

Ancestor veneration next to shamanism is humanity’s oldest spiritual tradition because the first man and woman walked the earth.  They have always wondered what happens after death. All of the burial rites that are performed all over the world in regards to wishing our deceased loved ones peace in the afterlife are the results of venerating the dead.

For instance, in Christianity, it is believed that a soul either goes to heaven or to hell.  Where heaven is imagined by most to be a place of rest and peace, while hell is believed to be a place of torment.  Ancestor veneration provides evidence that is missing from the bible on if our deceased loved ones have either gone to a place of rest or a place of torment.

Idealistically,  when a person dies and ascends to the heavens or a place of rest and peace, their passing is a peaceful event.  But, realistically speaking when most people die they have concerns that they carry over with them. Every deceased mother is concerned if her children are going to be taken care of after they are gone. Every deceased father is concerned if he has provided for his family all that they need when he has passed. Every grandparent is concerned if they have taught their children and grandchildren the wisdom they need to ensure family traditions, and so on.  According to some ancestral traditions rather we realize it or not, the reason we the living mourn our deceased loved ones is that deep within our soul, death has robbed us of an individual who can help guide us in life.

Thankfully through ancestor veneration, we are able to put our ancestors’ concerns for us–their living descendants–and our concerns–their guidance and wisdom– to rest.  By remembering our ancestor likes certain foods, drinks, specific scriptures out of the Bible, etc. Our ancestors are able to impart their guidance and wisdom regarding the difficulties we have in our life to us through inspiration.

Insight from the ancestors on what to expect in the afterlife is how the Kemetic people knew about the Final Judgment

So, as you can see, there is no “worship” involved at all. In fact, ancestor veneration is a very pragmatic practice, which is the reason it is the oldest spiritual practice in the history of the planet that is practiced all over the world.  It is also the reason the Kemetic people were able to develop their elaborate spiritual religion and tradition. Basically, it was insight from the ancestors about what to expect in the afterlife, which made the Kemetic sages develop their spiritual practices to prepare the living.

All of these weird tales about the ancestors being evil is crap that Hollywood created because people love the thrill of being frightened similar to riding a rollercoaster.  And, it is easier to scare people about their ancestors if they are ignorant of this spiritual practice.

Our ancestors are our greatest allies, friends, and helpers, and through honoring and remembering them. They guide us, protect us, move obstacles and teach us so that we can have a better life.  For more information on how to work with your ancestors see ​Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way.

Did You Forget?

9 07 2019


Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know it recently dawned on me that after reading and studying the Kemetic history, Kemetic philosophy and the Kemetic tradition.  And, after years of implementing what I have learned about Kemetic spirituality to find my own way or personal maa (truth, law, etc.). That the ancient Kemetic sages were notorious for inscribing everything down on the wall, stone tablet, and papyrus but there were a couple of subjects that they did not leave a record of and they are: finances and health.

Why is that?

Is it because the Kemetic people did not feel that finances and health were important?

Well, in regards to finances we must remember that the Kemetic people lived in an agrarian and somewhat socialist society where the wealth of the nation was shared with everyone. Kemet excelled and prospered over other nations of antiquity because of the inundation o the Nile River.  This is the main reason we cannot practice Kemetic spirituality the way it was done in Kemet because we live in two different cultural societies.

Life on the Nile.

Generally speaking, the surplus in food is what allowed the Kemetic people to ponder the mysteries of the Universe because they did not have to worry about where the next meal was going to come from. So, we know that finances were important because it was needed to feed, clothe and shelter the people, not to mention to fund major projects like the building of temples and colossal statues.

We also know from the various medical texts that have been recovered that the Kemetic people thought that the health of the people was also very important.

But, there were no major texts written on how to increase your finances and how to live healthy when compared to all of the texts written on spirituality, which made me ask why?

The answer that came back to me is that finances and health were important to our Nilotic ancestors but it was more important for us understand who we are.

The Kemetic sages understood that with each generation there is a natural progression and regression that occurs.  Where the more technologically advanced a society becomes the more they regress because technology distracts people from their real goal. The real goal according to the Kemetic sages is that we come to this physical plane to spiritually evolve, and the only way to evolve is to experience hardship and suffering.

Why hardship and suffering, you ask?

TASETT (The Red Lands) – the physical realm and land of the living.

It is because you cannot temper metal if there is not fire. We must remember that Set is the lord of this physical plane or TASETT (the Red Lands) and it is meant to be a living hell.

Therefore, the Kemetic sages did not write about finances and health because they did not want us to become distract and focus all of our attention on making money and diet/health, which in the “conscious” community the latter has become the new religion.

Please hear me correctly. I did not say that they were not important because they are, but we must remember that we are here to strengthen our soul.

That being said, the way to improve your health and increase your finances is by following Osar (Asar) by teaching and helping people to heal themselves, so they can improve their own lives.

Why Are There So Many Gods and Goddesses in Traditional African Religions (Part II)

1 07 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Continuing our conversation from Why are there so many Gods  and Goddesses in African Religions (Part I).  The question that comes to mind is “How Do You Work with Your Archetypes?”

There are numerous ways to work with your archetypes, gods, goddesses, etc. but I have found that the best way to work with them is by first understanding how your mind works, so as to not fall into the trap of becoming superstitious because working with archetypes is kind of a magical process.  Therefore, for simplicity purposes, our mind is composed of three parts and they are the conscious, subconscious and Superconscious.  

So as to not make this post too incredibly long, the conscious is the part of our being that we use to make decisions.  

The conscious is the part of our being that we use to make choices and decisions. 

The subconscious is the part of the mind responsible for governing all of our processes that occur outside of conscious awareness, like the storing and governing of our personal experiences, memories, emotions, and beliefs, along with maintaining our autonomous body functions.  

While the Superconscious, on the other hand, is different from the subconscious in the sense that it is basically an unlimited storehouse of every living being on the planet. Since the Superconscious is the storehouse for everything it is omnipresent (everywhere), omnipresent and all-knowing, and functions according to the law of synchronicity.

We can think of the Superconscious as being like the Sun.  Sidebar:  Some of the older Kemetic traditions equated Ra and the Sun with the Superconscious., which was incorporated into other traditions, which is the reason all of the Kemetic creation theories pay homage in-one-way or another to Ra/Amun Ra.) 

As you know the Sun is full of raw and untapped power, which can be used to power anything. But, if you plugged a television set directly to the Sun. You and the television set would burn up because the intensity of the Sun’s heat and power is too great.  You would need a converter or some kind of tool to streamline the power of the Sun so that you can use it safely without harming yourself or anyone else, and this is what the subconscious does for us.

Our subconscious basically reflects whatever we believe to the Superconscious, which if held in our awareness for a period of time will become our reality.  

Now, the reason most spiritual work places emphasis on the subconscious is because the subconscious acts as a gateway to the Superconscious since its primary objective is to help us to physically survive.  What this means is that our subconscious basically determines what we want from the Superconscious. To put it plainly, since our subconscious governs our emotions we basically determine the type of life we want based upon how we believe and feel, and it is our Superconscious that indiscriminately makes what we believe and feel a reality.

The purpose of the subconscious is to help us to survive by protecting us from danger.  It accomplishes this by indiscriminately learning and memorizing everything that is in its environment, so that we are not hurt physically, mentally or emotionally.  One of the most familiar ways the subconscious protects us is by reminding us how it feels to be burned by fire or something hot. So every time we see fire, it is our subconscious that is reminding us to be careful. We respect the element fire and are cautious dealing with it because we all have a memory of either being burned or seeing someone burned that is stored away in our subconscious. Our subconscious uses this memory to remind us of the consequences of not being careful when handling fire.

But sometimes our subconscious can become too overbearing and will store memories or life lessons that are detrimental to our wellbeing even though it thinks it is doing the right thing. Typically these are traumatic memories that have made such a deep impression on our psyche that they have formulated beliefs and actually influence our actions and behaviors.  Most of the time these beliefs created by these traumatic memories cannot be erased and replaced by simply saying so because they are deeply embedded into our subconscious. When a traumatic event has been embedded into our subconscious whereas it shapes our beliefs.  Our subconscious dictates and even enslaves our conscious with these memories, thus preventing us from achieving the life that we want out of fear, guilt, and other inhibitions. Right now, part of the reason you are reading this post is that there is something you want or wanted to accomplish or do but it was your fear, guilt, and inhibitions that prevented you from doing so. Now, you walk around with a heavy heart full of regret because your subconscious beliefs and emotions are holding you back. 

This is what is called a crossed condition because the subconscious is not supposed to make choices and decisions for us.  This is the responsibility of our conscious.  The reason the subconscious has hijacked our life is that we have been led to trust our emotions over reasoning.  So we believe that everything that is good for us should feel good and everything that feels bad should feel bad.  This simple system of classifying works for touching fire but not for more complex matters such as choosing a career, mate, etc., hence the term crossed.

I have found that there are a lot of people who think they are cursed or that “God has forsaken them.” In truth, they have simply crossed themselves up with their beliefs. For instance, the other day I happened to turn on the tv and there was this lady complaining about how she could not find a man.  So she moped around all depressed and unhappy because she wanted a man and when one of her friends mentioned in disbelief that her boyfriend was cheating on her. The lady commented that there were only two types of men and they are, “The ones that cheat and the ones that have not got caught.”

The audience laughed but the reality is that this lady created her own limited paradigm.  She has crossed herself up and the reason she will not find a good man is that she believes that there are only two types of men and they are both unfaithful.  So, since she believes this, her subconscious will make sure that she will never meet any good men. 

The sad thing is that this lady could run smack dab into the man of her dreams but her subconscious beliefs and feelings will sabotage all of her chances of having a good and prosperous relationship because she believes that there are two types of men and they all are unfaithful.  This lady’s subconscious may also only ensure that she only meets bad men just to validate her beliefs that there are no good men.

It is important to understand that the reason our subconscious makes gross errors in our judgment in choosing a mate, a career choice, trusting people, etc. is that it has a limited perspective, which is solely based upon our personal experience.  The subconscious is like a child in the sense that it overgeneralizes solely based upon what it has experienced, which is our personal experience. 

Don’t get me wrong, when the subconscious generalizes over things like fire it is great because all over the world fire is hot and if not used correctly will cause harm.  But, the subconscious cannot generalize that all men are bad because human beings as a species are too dynamic. There are some aspects of men that can be generalized but not all of them because we have a unique home life, unique family and friends, unique cultural and historical backgrounds, etc. , and all of these factors are what makes each man on the planet uniquely different. Saying that there are no good men is like saying all men are the same or all women are the same, etc.

Now, if this lady is serious about getting a good man she has to uncross herself, which means change her beliefs by impressing upon her subconscious a new belief. Since most negative beliefs are impressed upon our subconscious through some emotional traumatic experience. The new belief has to be impressed upon the subconscious with a greater emotional force to overcome the old thinking and generate a new experience.  Basically, she needs to create and/or develop her own personal truth or personal maa.  

Establishing Your Personal Maa

Maa is the Kemetic word for balance, order, law, righteousness and truth but truth is relative and subjective. For instance, if I do not like brussel sprouts (which I am trying to but I don’t) and when I eat them they make me gag,  My personal maa is that brussel sprouts are not for me.  This does not mean that this vegetable is good or evil.  It simply means that for me this vegetable is not good.  Therefore,  your personal maa is knowing what works for you based upon your Spirit.   In the previous example with the lady experiencing relationship troubles,  She is basically living her life based upon someone else’s experiences.  When we our spiritually ignorant, we all do this by asking our family and friends their opinions on what we should do or the individuals we should choose to come into our circle.  We forget that we are dynamic beings so although one person may look good in a particular relationship does not mean he/she will be a suitable mate for you.  This is the reason we have to let our Superconscious take a more active role instead of relying on the whims of our subconscious. And, one of the most effective ways I have found to do this is by creating/developing your own personal maa by: 1) Adopting a story as a mental guide and.  2) Using the character in the story to symbolize aspects of the mind.

So that we are clear, the reason for creating/developing your own personal maa is because our subconscious mind, which you will recall is the part of our being that governs all of our personal memories, beliefs, emotions, and indiscriminately mimics whatever it is exposed to.  Communicates to us through symbols and is programmable but it cannot make decisions so it needs a model as a frame of reference.  Part of the reason our subconscious has led us astray so far is because it did not have anyone to model in regards to the things we want out of life.  As a result, our subconscious usually motivates us to foolishly model athletes, actors, entertainers, etc.  When you adopt a legend as a mental guide, it trains the subconscious to understand that it has a limited experience and must align itself with the Superconscious.

1) Choose a Legend

Choose a legend or story that you are fond with as a map of your mind. The more intricate the story the greater impact and insight the story will play in your life. 

2) Using the character in the story to symbolize aspects of the mind.

Label the character in the story based upon the aspects of your mind. 

You can choose any legend that you desire and radiates with you. For instance, if you like the Wizard of Oz  or The Wiz you can choose this legend and allow Dorothy symbolizes your conscious. The good witch is your Superconscious and the evil witch if your subconscious.  (This theme can be used for all fairy tales where there are two opposing witches.).  If you are familiar with the Hindu chakra system you can include this in your subconscious programming as the “yellow brick road.”  There are numerous ways you can play with this and you do not even need to stick with this story line.  You can weave other stories into your mythology as was done with the film series Shrek.   

Although you are encouraged to pick any legend you want, I personally would avoid choosing the Christian lore because of notable contradictions.   For instance, according to Christian teachings which is influenced by astrological theology, Jesus is the source of everything which is equivalent to the Superconscious.  However, religious dogma also portrays Jesus as the hero/savior of humanity thus indicating that the messiah is outside of our being, but the true hero/heroine in mythology around the world always corresponds to the conscious mind.  This means that Jesus is both the Superconscious and the conscious, which does not make sense to the subconscious part of our being because, the subconscious is very logical like a computer and needs clear instructions.   This combined with the racist and sexist perversion of the Christian message makes the Christian lore a poor model for our mind.  

This is the reason most Christians (including Jehovah Witness and Muslims who follow this similar path) have no individuality, feel as if they have no rights to question God/Jehovah/Allah (or messengers), and are borderline (if not) religious fanatics because, they have surrendered everything to the Superconscious part of their being.  Unfortunately, what a lot of people are realizing-particularly those that leave these religions of “least resistance” -is that while it may bring solace to give your burden to someone else (Jesus, God, etc.).  It does not excuse you from your destiny and the lessons you must learn.  For instance, if you have trouble managing your anger, it does not matter how many times you pray to Jesus or how many attributes of Allah you recite. You are still going to have this problem because you cannot just give it to something. You have to learn how to control your anger, which involves you working face-to-face with your neglected subconscious.  In this case you may be able to use the good angel/bad angel model but you have to remind yourself that this is an internal dialogue occurring within your mind and not outside of you. 

There are a lot of problems that arise when using the Christian lore as a model mainly because the early Christian writers decided at the Council of Nicaea to interpret the stories attributed to Jesus literally.  Instead of getting boggled down with trying to sort out what is good and what can be discarded, I just prefer to start afresh with another mythology such as the Story of Osar.

I personally am fond of the Kemetic Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) because it is ancient, it effectively helped the Kemetic people build a 3,000+ year civilization and it is full of metaphorical language.  I symbolize my conscious as Hru (Horus), the Superconscious as Osar and the overgeneralizing and childish nature of my subconscious as Set.

Once you commit your legend to memory and assign who your Superconscious, subconscious and conscious is going to be. 

Hru (left/Conscious),  Osar (center/Superconscious) and Set (right/subconscious)

All of the other characters becoming supporting cast members that will help you align to yourself with your Superconscious. The magick occurs when you start to trust your intuition and simply talk to these archetypes and tell them what is on your mind because the archetypes are linked to the Superconscious, which uses synchronicity as a form of delivery.  For instance, I have asked my Set why a particular behavior exists and he has shown or rather reminded me where I picked the negative behavior from. I have called upon my Djahuti (Thoth, see About Rau Khu) to explain to me how to solve a problem, and after a few minutes of thinking or worrying about the issue. I receive a response that just pops into my head and as soon as I do I issue my Djahuti words of gratitude.  I have talked to Hru (Horus) and receive a sign in the form of a hawk.  I have been traveling and been given signs from Npu (Anubis).   In other words for me, when I connect to my archetypes I also forge a bond with the spirit guides and animal totems associated with them.  I have written about all of this in my books just to prove that it works and explain from a scientific perspective why. 

We can have as many archetypes as we like because they exist to help us to make a better life.  The thing is we all have archetypes because generally speaking, we all have to deal with unpleasant events. We all encounter issues when dealing with people, and so on because these are universal.  So, we all have archetypes speaking to us all the time.  The problem that most of us had is that:  1) We have been told that all of the gods and goddesses are false gods and thereby powerless (useless) because we were listening to people who were literally worshiping a deity outside of themselves,  And, 2) We did not have a map of the human mind, so we did not know which of the voices (archetypes) to listen to.  

Now that we understand truly what archetypes are, and we see that Africans (and other people of color) never worshiped false gods and idols.  It becomes quite clear that our ancestors simply understood how to work the Divine’s greatest creation, which is the human mind.  

Hopefully, with this understanding, we can now make some drastic moves in our lives.

Why Are There So Many Gods and Goddesses in Traditional African Religions (Part I)

28 06 2019

I will never forget when I started erecting sacred spaces to work with the deities, there was a Christian relative of mine who caught a glimpse of my altars.  In his barrage of opinionated attack of why I should not be worshipping gods and instead should turn my life over to Jesus. He remarked, “Why do you have so many gods anyway?”

At the time, I was relatively new to the path so I did not know how to respond until one day I learned about archetypes.  Now, I had heard the term used by people for years but I never knew what they were. When I finally began reading about them, the first book I picked up on the subject was Carolyn Myss’ Sacred Contract. In this book, I found that the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychology Carl Jung was the individual who created the term ‘archetype,’ which he saw as fundamental units of the mind.  But thousands of years before him the Greek philosopher Plato called them forms.  Plato explained that forms were idealistic templates that existed in the non-physical world, which includes roundness, softness, blackness, etc.

What Plato and later Jung was stating was there are forms, archetypes or ideal templates that exist all around us.  That is an ideal model of how everything within the physical world functions.  For instance, plants do not grow all over the planet. Plants need water, air and a certain type of soil to grow and develop. This is the template that all plants must follow, then to get more specific. Certain plants require a little bit more or less of these ingredients to produce a specific type of plant, fruit, etc.

So, according to Jung there are numerous forms or archetypes that exist and some of the most popular ones are:

When non-western cultures around the world such as the Kemetic people observed that everything in the physical world is following a specific template. They stated that there is an intelligence governing that particular physical thing, which the ancient Kemetic sages called netcharu (netjeru, netcheru, etc.) and western archeologists, as well as theologians, have tried to demonize by calling them, gods and goddesses.  These intelligences are simply the same forms or archetypes which Plato and Jung identified.

Why did Westerners make a  distinction?

Well, when Christianity swept through the Western civilization, thus making people depended more upon logical, rational and scientific thought.  To avoid persecution and distinguish themselves from pagans, western philosophers dropped the term gods and goddesses because they believed that these entities existed outside of them, and just associated all the positive attributes with the archetype whom they called God, and the negative with the devil.

What the Westerners did not understand was that the so-called gods and goddesses or forms and archetypes are a part of us as well because we are also a product of the physical realm.  In other words, archetypes are the invisible forces behind human behavior.

For this reason, many non-western cultures continued to view the archetypes or forms as gods and goddesses for two reasons.  First, they maintained this tradition because they knew that these intelligences existed outside of them but also within them particularly their unconscious. For instance, the same nurturing nature that exists in mothers can be found in female cows, female birds, and everything in nature, which is why the Kemetic sages called this intelligence Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis), the Divine Mother of Everything. Second, they continued to maintain the tradition of referring to these intelligences as gods and goddesses because they knew that if you could observe how this intelligent was functioning in your life. If the behavior is unacceptable, you can easily separate yourself from the god/goddess and correct it.

Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) with Child Hru (Horus) (L) and the Virgin Mary with Child (R)

It should be noted that failure to understand the psychology behind the nature of archetypes is the reason Christianity was able to mimic the Kemetic thought by transforming Oset to the Virgin Mary. But, unable to spiritually transform adherents as evidenced by the growing number of sexual abuse cases plaguing the church.

So what is it that archetypes do and why are they so important?

Archetypes basically influence our behavior because they are from a psychological perspective, software programs for our psyche.  We are all influenced by archetypes rather we choose to believe in them or not. For instance, if you want to have a romantic evening what do most of us do? We put on soft, seductive music. Light incense and/or soft colored candles.  Have a romantic dinner, etc. because we want to set the mood. Who told us to do this? Most of us are not sure but we do it because we are being influenced by the archetype of Love & Passion.  In Western mythology, this would be Venus. In Kemetic mythology, it would be Bes.  

Your archetype is basically what triggers your emotional response to behave bravely, courageous, protectively, cowardly, etc. Identifying who you archetypes are will give your life a lot of meaning. Understand, that when I say your archetype I am speaking of the main archetypes that play a major role in your life. These are the personalities that you identify as yourself.

Why are so many people afraid of this?

As stated earlier, a lot of people in west did not want to be stigmatized and persecuted as being a pagan because “to go against the Church, is to go against God.”  Later, when the German psychologists Sigmund Freud emerged and proposed his theories about the unconscious mind and its’ unfulfilled desires.  Thereby suggesting that most people were crazy or psychotic, which is the reason Freud termed his field of study psychoanalysis.  Freud’s theories further cemented peoples’ fears about the mind and the Christian idea of the devil being associated with this part of our mind.  So, when we hear voices in our head, it was concluded based upon Freud’s theories that we were crazy or from a religious perspective hearing the devil. This is the reason when we see people talking to themselves we automatically assume that they are mentally unstable.

Although Jung was mentored by Freud, he took a different approach from his older colleague by observing his patients and studying the various mythologies from around the world.  This humble approach led Jung to see familiar psychological patterns among his patients and himself.  These patterns are what Jung termed as archetypes and led him to conclude that everyone (including himself) had a fragmented consciousness. In other words, what Jung theorized was that while we may think of our mind as being a single unit or I.  According to Jung, our mind is plural and consists of a pantheon of archetypes.

Therefore, when we hear voices in our head it is important to know that it is one of our archetypes speaking so that we can weaved it together to make our psyche whole.

Now, there are numerous ways this can be accomplished and one very effective method inspired by the Kemetic pantheon centers around the Higher Self.

Coming Soon! In “Why Are There So Many Gods and Goddesses in Traditional African Religions (Part II)”, we will go over some ways of working with our archetypes. 





When the Student is Ready, A Spirit (Not a Teacher) Will Appear

2 06 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Many of us have heard that the saying that “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” but I have found this not to be the case. First, the reason many of us believe that a teacher will appear when we are “ready” is because we live in a society that: 1) discourages spiritual education and, 2) focuses entirely on the physical sciences.  What I mean by discourages spiritual education and focuses on physical science is that once we enter the western education system as children.  We are discouraged from communicating with our ancestors and spirits, by fearing what we cannot physically assess with our five physical senses.  We are taught to think logically and to only entertain abstract and illogical thought in a religious setting.

So many of us (myself included) go all over the world (it seems) looking for a teacher and pledging our lives to individuals whom we think will teach us.  It is only after we have experienced some hardships due to us idolizing spiritual teachers that it becomes apparent. That our universe is composed of a spiritual and physical reality, which means everything that we physically see came into existence from spiritual reality. Therefore, the only reason why a teacher will appear “when the student is ready” is because the student ignored all of the spiritual signs that came in the beginning.

Most of us living in the West miss these signs because we live a society where Christianity is the major religion of influence.  Therefore, when something unplanned happens to us we are taught and trained to label it as a bad experience and blame it on the devil based upon our lower mind perspective.

Image result for devil

What do I mean when I say a lower mind perspective?

Well, our mind is composed of three parts and they are the Superconscious, Conscious and subconscious mind. The Superconscious is responsible for governing all of the intuitive aspects of our mind, while the subconscious is responsible for governing all of our personal memories, emotions and the mental faculties needed to physically survive. The Conscious mind is simply the part of our being commonly called our soul, which is used to decide the part of our mind (Superconscious or subconscious) that is going to dominate our life.

Image result for subconscious conscious superconscious

For this reason, the Superconscious is personified as our Osar and symbolized as KAMTA on the Maa Aankh, and the subconscious is personified as Set and symbolized as TASETT.  While, the Conscious is symbolized as Hru (Horus), but the evolution of our consciousness is symbolized as the four solar discs surrounding the Maa Aankh.

Our Kemetic ancestors chose to symbolize the Superconscious as the dark fertile lands of the southern region of Kemet to remind us that like fertile soil.  The Superconscious yields unlimited potential and possibilities.  It gives us a more holistic perspective that allows us to see into the future.  Hence the reason, Osar is able to teach his people spiritual laws, introduce new sciences and lay the foundations for building a prosperous civilization.  All conflicts are resolved in a peaceful manner because everyone is seen as being part of the collective or a member of the same family. Therefore, what affects one individual will eventually have a domino effect and affect everyone.

The arid and red desert of the northern region was chosen to symbolize the subconscious to remind us that because the subconscious is responsible for governing all of our personal memories and emotions to help us to physically survive.  It gives us a very narrow, limited and selfish perspective about life.  As illustrated in the legend, after Set usurps the throne, he leads to civilization on a spiraling path to its demise because he offers no new solutions to the problems we face. All conflicts are resolved from a selfish perspective which creates more conflict that results in violent outcomes.

TASETT – the Lower Kemet/lower self/subconscious – sahu part of our being. TASETT also represents the SAHU, KHAB, KHABIT & KA Divisions of the Spirit

Let me give you a real-life example of a Setian perspective. I remember the first time I began to see these two perspectives was years ago when I was a kid in high school. In the mid-1980s when crack cocaine hit the streets of Detroit. People all over the city were dying due to their addiction to the drug, while kids all over the city were dying due to the rising homicide violence related to the drug. All of the high schools and eventually elementary schools installed metal detectors.  There were kids being shot and killed at school all over the city. I will never forget that as the city plunged to its demise, there was a summit held to discuss the issues with other officials in the metropolitan area.  When asked what could be done and if other communities could assist. There were officials outside of the City of Detroit in the more affluent neighborhoods that refused to help because they categorized the problem as an “urban problem.”  The only advice that was offered was Nancy Reagan’s slogan “Just Say No to Drugs!” while the Regan administration said, “Yes to Mass Incarceration.”

Image result for nancy reagan say no to drugs

This was the first time I  officially saw racism and classism at work because it did not take a genius to know that “urban problem” was code for a “Black problem.” My suspicions were confirmed when the U.S. government passed draconian laws imprisoning all people of color for possession of crack cocaine regardless if they were addicted or had plans to distribute, whereas individuals carrying a larger quantity of powder cocaine received less severe punishments and sentencing. Later when I got older and learned about Kemetic thinking, that is when I realized that this selfish perspective was classic Setian thinking because today’s “urban problem” exists all over the country and now, the more affluent people are suffering from opioid addictions as well.

The more Osarian approach to the problem would have been to recognize that people of all ethnicities use illicit drugs as a form of escape because they do not know how to cope with situations from a more sensible manner. America’s drug problems are not an “urban” problem, a Black or Brown problem but a “societal” problem affecting everyone within the country.  It is a continually growing problem because there are no spiritual institutions in place that help people to cope with these matters.

I remember watching a documentary that showed that when Canadian officials accepted that their country had a substance abuse problem.  They combatted the problem by focusing on educating people on how to cope with stressful matters using alternative treatment techniques like meditation and treatment. So that their citizens would not quickly turn to illicit drugs as an escape. As a result, the number of drug-related crimes decreased across the country. Please note that the Canadian government did not implement a perfect program because there is no one solution that is going to solve every problem. However, it should be noted that years before the U.S., they implemented a program to help ALL (not just a specific group) affected by illicit drugs versus imprisoning them.  The Canadian government simply took an “us” instead of a “them” approach to dealing with the problem.

To put it bluntly, If the U.S. had seen the crack cocaine epidemic as an issue that affected all American citizens instead of seeing it as a Black and Brown thing, the substance abuse problem it faces may not be as grand as it is today. This same selfish perspective can be seen in other US policies as well. For instance, if the U.S. had seen the erupting violence occurring in urban schools as an issue that would eventually affect the entire public school systems.  The number of school shootings we witness today would not be so common.

The thing about the Setian perspective is that it spiritually represents a childish mind state. This is the reason Set is said to be according to legend the youngest of the Kemetic divinities. Set’s youthfulness is also an allusion referring to the limited perspective that many youths live their lives from as they focus solely on the physical. For instance, those living from a Setian perspective will believe that when unplanned events occur. They are accidents, coincidences, etc. that just happens. Only individuals who have developed their consciousness to understand that we live in a cause and effect universe, know that nothing just happens. In other words, every time we have an unpleasant experience, it does not necessarily mean that it is bad. It only appears that way because our spiritual immaturity does not allow us to see the whole picture. To illustrate this, when the S*** hits the fan, we only see the physical things that occur in TASETT, which is symbolized as the Right Eye of Ra. To pass to the next stage of our development, we have to spiritually die, which is symbolized as the setting Ra Atum sun.

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

The Right Eye of Ra , which is associated with the Ra moment on the Maa Aankh. It is also known as the Solar Eye and corresponds to literal and physical sight, hence the failure to see abstract and spiritual concepts.

So the question is what do you do when you are in this situation?

Generally speaking, simply relax and don’t fight it. The more you fight, the harder the experience will be because this is Maat’s way of restoring balance in your life. This is the reason (if you have not figured it out yet), that every time you become anxious the conditions around you become tenser. When you are rushing, that’s when things get in your way to slow you down. When you expect something to go wrong, that’s when things go wrong. These are all examples of Set manifesting himself in your life, which Maat supports because she is trying to connect you with your Osar who rests at the Amun Ra moment.

Why do we undergo this negative experience in the first place?

It is because during our lifetime while dwelling in TASETT you have acquired an impurity within your soul. This usually occurred somewhere between the Khepera and Ra moment.  The impure belief caused numerous problems in your life and manifested itself fully during the Ra and Ra Atum moment. When you surrender to your Higher Self and let it all go, it is when you meet your Osar and you are able to resolve your problem.

This means that the purpose of this experience is to purge the negative aspect out of you so that you can be receptive to the Spirit who is willing to teach you about you. which is symbolized as the Left Eye of Ra.

The Left Eye of Ra , which is associated with the Amun Ra moment on the Maa Aankh. It is also known as the Lunar Eye and corresponds to abstract and spiritual insight.

So, if you are going through a rough patch, it might be time for you to sit down, be quiet and listen to your Spirits to defeat your Set.

If Your Life Sucks It is Probably Because You Forgot You Are a God/Goddess Pt. 1

20 05 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

I have been toying around with this post for a few weeks now because I was not sure how to deliver it, but the time has come to just put it out there and just say what needs to be said. So here it is…

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Our universe is composed of two realities and they are the invisible, spiritual realm and a visible, physical realm. As I have mentioned before, our Nilotic ancestors in Kemet and Kush loved to use metaphors and puns.  So, although they called the northernmost region Ta Sett – the Red Lands because of the soil was red and arid.  And, they called the southernmost region Kam Ta (KMT) – the Black Lands because the soil was black, rich and fertile. These terms are also metaphysical codes referring to the characteristics of the physical and spiritual realms.

TASETT is not just an arid land. It symbolizes the physical realm and all of its limitations. The ancient Bantu priests in Kemet chose the desert as a symbol to describe the physical realm, to remind us. That because a desert has a limited supply of water all living beings in the physical realm are in constant competition with one another. Simply put, it is about the survival of the fittest in the physical realm because it appears that there are limited resources. The limited resources in the physical realm combined with the competition to survive also convinces people that the only way to succeed in through direct action and aggression. This is the reason TASETT (the Red Lands and the physical realm) is chaotic and ruled by Set – the Lord of Confusion.

Therefore, when an individual is grounded or polarized solely in their thinking that there is only one reality and that is the physical realm.  This individual is totally controlled by their lower self or subconscious part of their being, which focuses solely on physical survival and lacks higher reasoning.  This individual is like an irate customer searching for goods that have already been sold.  When news is announced that there are only one of these goods available, they result in struggling and fighting other customers as if it were Black Friday, hence no higher reasoning.

KAMTA is not just the name for the black fertile land in the southern region of ancient Kemet. The term was not only chosen by the Kemetic people to describe the Kemetians dark complexion. It was used to remind people about the mysterious and unlimited nature of the spiritual realm. Where TASETT is limited, KAMTA is abundant. Where TASETT is actual, KAMTA is imaginary.  Survival in TASETT depends upon direct actions, physical competition, and aggression. Well, in KAMTA survival depends upon cooperation and spiritual development.

Therefore, when an individual understands the nature of this metaphysical reality called KAMTA. They know that when our thoughts are held in our conscious awareness over a period of time, they manifest our physical reality. The individual who understands the abundant nature of the spiritual realm knows that if they declare what they want. The universe will deliver their request, which is the reason KAMTA is ruled by Osar who symbolizes higher reasoning skills.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

What this means is that if you are having a lot of problems in your life, symbolized on the Maa Aankh (above) as the Ra/Midday Sun descending to Ra Atum/Sunset.  It is because you forgot you are a God or Goddess who can create his or her own reality. If you believe that our Perfect Creator is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, then you should be pleased to know that unlike the biblical deity, the Divine does not make mistakes. Everything that happens follows a Divine Plan, which means that all of your problems are stepping stones to help you to reclaim your GOD CONSCIOUSNESS back at Amun Ra moment.

Three Signs Prophesied by the Story of Osar that Your Ancestors Are Working For You

18 05 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Greetings Family. I just received a question asking “How do you know when your ancestors are working on your behalf?” This is a common question that a lot of people have especially if you are new to ancestor veneration. Although I cannot tell you exactly what will occur all of the time when you are honoring your ancestors because everyone does not venerate their ancestors the same. I can tell you from my experience the signs that convinced me that my ancestors were working.

To begin, I must say that I do not worship my ancestors, I honor or venerate them. This must be understood because there are some cultures that teach adherents to make offerings to their ancestors so that they can receive blessings from them and if they fail to provide a particular offering to their ancestors. Then, it is believed that their ancestors will punish them.  For the record, I respect people who follow this cultural practice but this is not the Kemetic Way.

Hru Osar and Set

To understand the Kemetic Way, just like the Torah is the guide for Jews, the bible is the guide for Christians, and the Koran is the guide for Muslims.  The main cannon of the Kemetic tradition is the Story of Osar and from a Kemetic shaman perspective.  The ancestors, like all spirits, are allies and these allies, like any other ally, have a similar objective to ours.

To understand this, know that the first rule of necromancy, which is the magical art of working with spirits of the dead, is that the dead are still interested in the life and wellbeing of the living.  This is the reason the spirits of the dead communicate with the living in the first place. So, when we look at the Story of Osar (Asar, Osiris), we find that Osar taught his people laws so that they could govern themselves, but his jealous brother Set murdered him and usurped the throne. Then, after Osar’s wife Oset (Aset, Isis) went into hiding, she gave birth to Osar’s heir, Hru, and managed to help the child physically survive to adulthood. When Hru comes of age, he is visited by his deceased father Osar in a dream, who tells him to avenge his death.  When Hru “chooses” to fight for his inheritance, Set unleashes a viscious propaganda campaign against him and physically fights Hru on every level. As the Story goes, Hru does not finally defeat Set until Osar intercedes on his behalf and a court of law declares him the victor.

Now, keep in mind that although the Story of Osar (like many ancient legends) has a lot of uncanny similarities to physical events, the Story of Osar is not to be interpreted literally per se but figuratively.  Therefore, since Osar is Hru’s ancestor when Osar visits Hru in his dream and tells the young prince to avenge his death.  This is an allusion referring to the inspiration many of us have that something is not right in our current society because we feel as if we have lost our cultural ways.

Remember, according to legend Osar taught his people laws and laws is another way of saying culture.  So Osar gave his people culture so that they could govern themselves.  This means that the first sign that your ancestors are working for you is that you recognize that “Blackness” is not your culture. Blackness is the culture of a people whose historical beginnings start in the early 1600s with Europeans telling them that they are the descendants of Adam and Eve’s wretched and cursed child Cain, who was marked for his evil deed by the dark pigmentation of his skin. That’s Blackness.

Image result for cain and abel

But, when your ancestors are working for you, you know that you are a Child of Osar. You don’t call yourself a Star Child or Sun Child just because it sounds cool.  You call yourself a Child of Osar, Son of Hru, Daughter of Oset, or Child of Shango, Child of Ellegua, Child of Yemaja, Daughter of Oshun, etc. because that’s what the Spirits told you. It was confirmed in a dream, a vision, through oracle reading, numerology, etc.   You call yourself a God or Goddess because you recognize that your Blackness is the beauty of this mysterious universe.

The second sign that your ancestors are working on your behalf is that you must remember that Osar began to communicate with Hru because he saw the horrible state that his people were in. So, don’t be fooled, you are not reading this post by accident. You did not just become suddenly involved in ancestor veneration and spiritual culture. Don’t let Set fool you into thinking that this is all coincidences. If you are reading this, it is because you have an ancestor(s) who is walking with you and this is why you are here.

The third sign that your ancestors are working for you is to remember that when Hru “chose” to fight for his inheritance.  That’s when Set launched an attack on him.  It should now be clear why you are most likely the stereotypical black sheep of your family and community, but know that God is with you.

So, now that you know that you know that your Spirits are working for you. You must understand that just like Osar communicated to Hru and asked him to avenge his death. We are not obligated to do what our ancestors want. We have the right to chose to follow the path of Osar (our ancestral path) or the wayward path created by Set that is leading to an apparent genocide.

Again, it has been prophesied that when we choose to follow our Osar’s path. Our Osar will intercede on our behalf because our ancestors stand and walk with us.

How to Worship the God/dess Within

29 04 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

It has come to my attention that a lot of people approach spiritual work as if they are in the church, temple or mosque because they have superimposed a lot of their old religious beliefs on to the new path they are on. This is not correct because it will basically make everything the same just with a different name. The only way to change this is by adopting another paradigm.

Image result for worship

For instance, as most of you know, I grew up in a Christian household. My father is preacher and my mother songstress. Like most who grew up in a strong Christian household, we went to church 4-5 times per week. For the longest time I could not understand why we went to church so often, until I learned that most Christians especially those from the southern U.S. believe that “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” Simply put, if you do not occupy yourself with something constructive you will eventually do something destructive, so a lot of people would counter this by going to church. Sidebar: Too bad they don’t understand metaphysics because there is a better way but, oh well.

Anyway,  because I went to church so often, when I finally got old enough and left the church.  I always felt as if something was missing.  I remember, I tried filling this void with yoga practices, daily meditation and/or prayer but something was still missing. When I began dabbling with other faiths, I found that filled the void temporarily but not completely mostly because it was outside of my cultural experience.   When I learned about the various energies or deities and the religions that centered around these entities, I learned that to worship them was to serve them but I could not bring myself to worship a deity/angel/archetype after being told for years that gods and goddesses are idols .  Even though it was right under my nose, it took me a long time to figure out that what was missing was the practice of attending church and praying to God on a regular basis.

Catholic Church Idolatry Exposed! Idol Worship FORBIDDEN by God

I felt as if there was a void because I had been taught that this was the only way to worship God who existed outside of me. When I finally found my whole knowledge of self, I realize that since the Divine is omnipresent – meaning everywhere. There is no need to worship the Divine in a church, mosque or temple. Many people feel comfortable and more at ease doing so because it helps to put them in the frame of mind. However, once it is realized that the Divine is everywhere and within you.  Then, when you talk to yourself, you are technically speaking talking to the Divine.

When I realized this, that is when my life changed because I realize that I had been talking down to my Divine for a long time.  You see, some of us have to check our self-talk because some of us talk horribly to the Divine within us. We cuss, swear, call our Divine stupid and dumb when we make a mistake, or tell ourselves what we can or can’t do.  This negative self-talk is truly anti-God, which means to worship the Divine within is to talk positive and affirm itself of its’ divine abilities.

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

Once I began to change how I talked to myself. I developed a different relationship with my Spirits. For instance, instead of serving them on a daily or weekly basis, it became me honoring and/or feeding them on a weekly basis to serve my purpose.  Remember, the Universe is mental so you must approach spirituality from an empowering perspective.

To Get Rid of Drama, You Have Get Rid of that Dramatic Religion

20 04 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

If you are reading this post, it is because you have already made the transition or you are beginning to make it.  So, this is just confirmation as to why you made the move to embrace your spirituality.

So the other day I happened to see a televangelist who gave that same come to Jesus spiel or else in regards to the violence occurring in the streets.

And, it made me wonder, do Christians ever have a good day? I mean seriously, everything that they do is centered around drama and tragedy. A tornado hit and they say it is because “God” is punishing them. An earthquake hits and it because “God” is angry.  An accident occurs and it is because “God” wants this person’s attention, etc.

I have said it before, there is only one god that I know who acts this trivial and trifling and his name is Zeus.

When I was a kid and used to read Greek mythology, I remember after reading about the various Greek heroes and finally Homer’s Iliad. I told my mom, “Zeus is crazy!”  It used to always strike me as odd after reading it for so long that we are taught to use logic and reason all throughout life but, when it comes to religion-particularly Christianity.  We are supposed to suspend all logic and reason and just accept this badly written interpretation of a story that appears in the bible.

But, that is when something very profound came to me as I was shaking my head at the televangelist.

If it is true that if you tell yourself a lie long enough it becomes your truth. Then, the same can be said if you tell yourself a bad story repeatedly, then it too becomes true too.  Basically, what I am saying is that the reason a lot of people got drama in their lives is because they model their life after the Christian paradigm that is full of trauma and drama.

It is unfortunate that a lot of people do not understand that our mind is composed of three parts (Superconscious, conscious and subconscious) and that the subconscious (learning/mimicking) part of our being, draws upon that which it is familiar with. Therefore, if you go to church and have been told that you are sinned and flawed being, then you never aspire to be better. You accept your fate and believe that “God/Zeus” plays favorites and literally favors the Jews over the Gentiles, etc. You only come running to “God” when tragedy strikes but until that time you are free to do whatever you want.

The subconscious will only let you go as far as you believe you can go. So, this means is that if you are believing Christian that when you get in a bind. You are taught to pray (and beg) Jesus/God to save you. Who can say “Yes” or “No.”  If the answer is “Yes” then, God favors you but if the answer is “No” then, God does not have favor for you.

This means that when we see all of this tragedy and people losing their kids over senseless violence. It is because God does not have favor according to Christian beliefs. Because I am sure these people prayed to God for protection and everything else, but God was not pleased with them.

If you want God to be pleased with you, all you have to do is become a God/Goddess.

When you accept that you are made in the image of GOD/GODDESS and that your purpose is not to be a child of God forever but to become a God or Goddess walking on earth. Then, you open the gate of your subconscious and can now access greater knowledge and wisdom as the Divine does. In other words, you think and believe like GOD or GODDESS should.

For instance, one of my main stories is the Kemetic Story of Osar, in which the youngest brother Set kills his older brother Osar (Osiris). I can draw all sorts of parallels from this legend because it is a great story full of metaphors and symbolism. Although it is not a simple fix, the only way to stop so much violence is to issue a command that people wake up and realize their divinity.  A lot of people like Set are in a childish mindset spiritually and cannot seem to see beyond their four corner block, and understand that if they are GOD/GODDESS they got the whole Universe is theirs.

It is all about perspective and unfortunately, a lot of people are stuck in the Christian paradigm, which only gives them one perspective, one reality and that is of a slave/victim of circumstance.

If you want out and you want more, then you got to want to be a God/Goddess.

Why They Discourage You From Doing Dark Energy/ Black Magick

15 04 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Lately there has been a lot of talk about dark matter and dark energy since scientists have discovered that dark energy permeates all throughout the universe.  The interesting thing is that they have known about dark energy and dark matter for years but have recently decided to make it public that they are researching it. All one has to do is look at some of the most popular sci-fi movies that came out a while ago such as, The Fifth Element, Stargate, Thor: The Dark World and so on. In all of these films, the dark energy/matter is depicted as being extremely powerful and/or is the Enemy as in Dean Koontz Phantoms.

Now, according to modern science, dark energy is 68.3%  of the universe and dark matter is 27% of the universe, which is not visible unlike normal matter. What this means is that our universe is composed of 95% darkness, while light only makes up 5% of the universe.

This means in regards to spirituality and magic, that since magick is the manipulation of energy, while spirituality is basically the philosophy one adapts to help them to manipulate this universal energy effectively and safely.  Then, there is no such thing as white or black, good or evil magick because what is good for one is bad for another and vice versa.  There is no such thing as good and bad or right and wrong, either from a GOD perspective because it is all about perspective.

This also means that what we call or have been conditioned to believe in regards to white and black magick is really nonsense tainted with a dash of racism.  This begs us to ask the question, what really is dark energy and black magick? How did this nonsense that everything that is good is white and everything that is evil is black get started? Well, to answer this question we must first define what good and evil is.

Evil according to the Kemetic people is imbalance, while good to the Kemetic people is balance. From a shamanistic perspective, Osar (Asar, Osiris) was murdered by his younger brother Set because he was in a state of imbalance, signified by his naivety of his enemies. In other words, Osar was “too spiritual” and his head was way up in the clouds. But, Set is also imbalanced in the sense he lacks order, structure and it is “too physical.”  Balance comes about through Osar’s heir Hru as symbolized by the white and red Pschent crown that Hru wears, but Hru did not become good overnight. He had to fight for that balance and continue to fight to maintain it.

To see this perspective, we must remember that on the Maa Aankh, Osar is the personification of our Superconscious which is the creative and intuitive part of our being, while Set is the personification of our subconscious, which is the habitual part of our being.  This means that Osar represents the extraordinary and Set represents the norm.  Said another way, Osar symbolizes that which is different and free flowing, while Set symbolizes everything that is ordinary and in the norm.  From an energy perspective we could say that KAMTA represents the divine feminine and TASETT the divine masculine, but as I mentioned. Both of these energies were seen as being destructive in the eyes of the Kemetic people because they were not balanced. One was like hot water to the extreme, while the other was cold water to the extreme, hence Hru symbolizes the balance between the two forces or energies.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

This means in a western Christian dominated society, anything that was free flowing, out of the norm or different was and is considered evil.  Here’s another fact to chew on. Have you noticed that no matter how scientifically sound you are – meaning most of us who are on an alternative spiritual path can explain our tradition using modern science, yet we are demonized?  Does it make sense now?

Now, I am sure you are asking, “What does this have to do with magick/spirituality?” Well, everything because if you are trying to manifest a change in your life doing magick/spirituality. You are not going to get very far because of this social conditioning. Subconsciously you are going to be held back because your Set does not want you to be ostracized and seen as being different. Your Set will discourage you doing anything that is considered too extreme or too different, but the only way to advance is to step out of your comfort zone and trust your intuition, which is really what the Darkside is all about.

If you have followed my blog posts and books, you know that I was introduced to the Kemetic path by my Spirits who spoke to me when I was at a very low point. This was my first jolt away from the norm.  Since I was raised as a Christian by very devout Christian parents, I was taught not to believe in Spirits, so for the next ten or so years, I spent a lot of time deprogramming my mind and cleansing myself of useless doctrines and unproven theories that were not going to assist me in this incarnation.

Along the way, as I embraced the Kemetic philosophy and what some would call the Kemetic theology.  I encountered a number of spiritual practitioners who assisted me along the way such as Ms. Smith a Root worker, Ms. B. a Yaya (priestess) in the Palo Mayombe religion, Iya the Oshun priestess who told me that I was called to be a shaman, and Papa the little old Black Cuban man who finalized my spiritual education before I made my final descent to meet my Spirits face-to-face.

My final jolt came when I became deathly ill.  That’s when I met my Spirits whom I learned never abandoned me as a child but were ignored because I had been social conditioning to only trust and believe in what I could physically see.

The society we live in is Setian in the sense that it is not holistic and does not encourage spirituality. We have all been conditioned to accept what we physically see as a reality.  This is why many people missed the clever Kemetic puns and allegories such as the Kemetic people telling us that they were Dark Energy people. Their entire culture focused on the practical use of Dark Energy but because we live in superficial society. We only focused on the idea that the Kemetic people called themselves Kemetic because of the fertile black soil due to the inundation of the Nile.   Thankfully things are shifting and we see now that KMT or Kemet are all code words for Dark Energy, hence KAMTA.

Understand, dark energy and dark matter cannot be seen and it ties right back to KAMTA and the understanding why it is called the Black Land (matter), yet it corresponds to the hidden part of our being, which is our Superconscious personified as Osar. While TASETT symbolizes the subconscious mind, which is the known and habitual part of our being that can be seen in the light personified as Set.

I know some will disagree but proof can be seen in the fact that the southern region (particularly the Kushite region) was considered the home of the Kemetic peoples’ ancestors. It should be noted that the southern region of Kemet or Upper Kemet was larger than the northern region or lower Kemet, which is similar to 95/5 ratio of darkness/light in the universe.   Another important concept to keep in mind is that Osar (Asar, Osiris) according to legend was the ruler of KAMTA (the southern region), as signified by the white Djet crown.  It makes sense why Osar is also the Lord of the Underworld Amenta (the Hidden Land) and the Tuats – 12 Hours of Night) and why all of these mysterious lands are synonymous with one another.

The point is that our Nilotic ancestors have been telling us for the longest time that the basis of our culture centers on understanding this potent energy that exists throughout the universe and within our being.  The Kemetic people left clues on how to use this energy because the practical use of dark energy is our ancestral heritage and culture.  For other people, it may require them to explore other cultures and peoples’ traditions, but for us, as Children of Osar.  All we need to do is do it because it is our birth right.

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

For instance, an example of working with this hidden Dark Energy was when my deceased grandmother helped me to make a bridge between the Kemetic Amun Ra tradition and Kongo Cross, which led to the discovery of the Maa Aankh. I like telling people this story because it is a reminder to me that I am not some mere mortal who descended from a flawed Adam and Eve creation, and was was born in sin.  But, I truly am from the Most High because I brought myself into being, and here lies the reason ‘they’ do not want you to work with black magick. It will awaken your consciousness and you will no longer be a slave.

Ring Shouting My B-Day Like A God/Goddess (How to Celebrate as a GOD/GODDESS)

9 03 2019

Never Forget

Today, as I sit her sipping on a cup of coffee, contemplating on how, on this very day I was born.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Copyright 2019 Derric Moore

I look across the room and notice my 14 month old squatting. Before I can think, “She’s pooping,” I wonder in amazement at how she knows that naturally this is the way her body works.  When she regains her stance signaling that she is finish. I reach for the diapers, wipes and ointment, while she tries to climb on the bookshelf. Funny how she knows certain things but does not see the danger in climbing the 6 foot high shelves that could easily fall.  I see the manifestation of Npu in her as her inquisitive spirit gets into everything and runs away from Daddy as he reaches to change her diaper.  She reminds me of the child within me.  I honor you Khepera for the Beginning.

Then, I hear from my teenage niece who tells me, “Happy Birthday!” in passing. She is too busy texting to have a one-on-one real conversation.  I over hear that she does not like people messing with her things and how upset it makes her. I remember when she born and when I changed her diapers, now she is busy teenager wrapped up in her own life. It is confirmation to me that it around our adolescent age that we come into the false sense of ourselves based upon the physical things surrounding us.  However, it is necessary for us to realize our purpose. I honor you Ra for Life.

My Mom enters and sings a brief rendition of Stevie Wonder’s Happy Birthday song. I am positive that as she wishes me well on my birthday, she remembers the pregnancy, the childbirth, the getting up with my father in the wee hours  of the night because she hears me coughing or crying because of an earache, stomach ache, scratching from the chickenpox, etc.  I see in her heart that there are some things she wish she could have done differently. Then she reminds me that Sunday school is at 10 tomorrow, thus verifying her role as an elder. Yet, signifying the death or end of an era that has become obsolete.  There was a time when the Church was the most important and most significant institution in our community. Nowadays it is relic meant to be appreciated, studied and admired in a museum because we do not live in the days of (physical) slavery any more. My niece showed me in the previous Ra moment that there are a lot of distractions preventing us from seeing our true self that was expressed automatically in my baby. I honor you Ra Atum for Death, hence Change.

The words of Ra to Oset “I am KhepeRa in the morning, Ra at noon, Tmu (Ra Atum) in the evening, ” which are all references to the Moments of the Sun. More information see: https://www.1solalliance.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=133_55276&zenid=d807dd7a6fb14e88b5833ee0a37cb30c

So, why on this day was I born? I am aware of all things both past and present.  If I decide to live tomorrow and do things according to some plan. It signifies something that easily missed, which is that I was born on this day because I chose to be here at this exact moment in time. Just like my daughter was aware of certain things regarding her being, prior to being conditioned like my niece and mom.   I am aware of certain things. I am aware that I AM.

Happy Earthday Amun Ra. “Thank you for Rebirth.”

Today, I dance for you.

Why Is the Spiritual Path So Challenging, and How to Make It Easier

8 03 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

We are all made in the image of the Divine. Every religious text states this because but most clergymen, theologians and religious philosopher gloss over this concept, to conceal their lack of spiritual understanding. We are all conditioned to accept and believe that we are subordinate, sinned and lowly dragged creatures who are simply a few DNA strands above apes.

As a result, we live our life like everyone else that has been programmed, by following the same daily routine.  Until one day something “miraculous” happens, which is out of the norm. Maybe, we made a wish to pass an exam and it happened, or we strongly wished for some money and got it.  It could have been we were in a dangerous situation and prayed real hard and escaped with our lives. Or, we had a love one who was miraculously healed. Whatever the case, something miraculous happened in our life and it was enough to jolt us and make us see that we have been living in a dream.

After we have been awakened from what we see is a long sleep, we decide to learn about this new reality that has been right under our noses, which everyone is calling spirituality.  So, we buy books and lately watch videos on what is spirituality, how to be more spiritual, etc. and here is where the problem begins.

Most of the books (not all) written about spirituality are actually by authors who write from a religious perspective, which is the belief that we should fear God and serve him.  And, not from a Divine perspective, which is that we are all made in the image of the Divine and therefore are gods and goddesses.  This is why if you search for anything spiritual, if you do not add a specific term like African or Kemetic spirituality, you will get a plethora of information on how to be a better Christian, Muslim or Jew.

Since most of the books written about spirituality are from religious mindset authors and not Divine mindset writers. Most of the information we read about spirituality is very confusing and misleading. Aside from that, if you read books from several authors who say a similar thing.  You subconsciously assume that what these individuals are saying is the truth and anything that deviates from them is false, thus establishing a set of beliefs based upon someone else’s perception. The Kemetic people symbolize mimicking spiritual wisdom as Aan because baboons (or primates) can imitate human beings perfectly but this does not make them human beings, and therefore they are not gods and goddesses.   Spirituality is about reconnecting to the Divine so that you decide what is best for you and not believing what others believe just because they say so.

For instance, I had a crucifix (non-Jesus one) on my altar to symbolize the Kongo Cross and the Four Ras of the Maa Aankh, thus becoming a Sign of God to represent everlasting life. But, this one brother saw it, then told me that my beliefs were wrong because the crucifix was a symbol of death. I had to tell him that the crucifix predates Christianity in order to get him to check himself about my spirituality, which is personal and should not be up for debate in the first place. The thing is I knew where he was coming from because he read this from somewhere and felt that he had the right to tell me what was right or wrong for me. This is totally a religious attitude and history will show this is the same attitude that the missionaries had when they encountered the Africans, Amerindian (Native American), Polynesians, Asians, and the list goes on, but we fail to see when we perpetrate this behavior on ourselves.

No photo description available.

So, how do you distinguish from Divine mindset authors and religious mindset authors, who are simply writing to lead you back into a fearful, religious mindset? In fact, how do you know which spiritual path you should embark upon?

It is simple. Spirituality is about understanding that we are made in the image of the Divine and therefore, we are gods and goddesses. If you find an author or teacher who is afraid to say this, they are trying to lead you back into another religion.

As to which spiritual path you should walk, all of the spiritual paths are the same with the same focus, which is to unite you back with the Divine. They only appear different because they have different methods of how to achieve this unification. For instance, yoga focuses on this unification through physical postures, while reiki focuses on this unification through auric healing and most magicks rely on this unification to achieve specific goals, etc.

Spirituality is not supposed to be hard and it is not supposed to be boring. Understand.  Individuals from a religious perspective who believe that God or some other force is going to punish them for not serving them correctly, believe that spirituality should be difficult. They believe that being spiritual means sitting all day Sunday and listening to someone preach or humbling yourself on your knees and proclaiming that you are not worthy. This is not spirituality. This is being religious.

Thoth (Djahuti, Tehuti) 12"

Spirituality is supposed to be fun because it is mystical, magickal and powerful, which is why Djahuti (Tehuti, Thoth) is said to be the master of these arts. It also explains the reason why Set tried to avoid Djahuti at all cost, similiar to how people are discouraged from learning about magick today.  In fact, spirituality for some people is an escape from the norm to the extraordinary.

So, remember that if you are on a spiritual path, the objective is to become a god man or god woman. If this is not stressed on a regular basis, you may need to check to see what path you are on.

Why You Need Magick in 2019

20 02 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

It is 2019, which means according to numerology when we add 2+0+1+9 to get a single number it totals to be 12 or 1+2 , which equals the number 3.  The number 3 is sacred to many messenger spirits like Npu (Anubis, Sebek), Ellegua, Pomba Gira, Exu, Lucero and other Mercury/Hermes energy because it refers to pathways, crossroads, doors, etc.

Now in the Story of Osar, after Set murdered Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris), threw the chest containing the body of Osar in the Nile and usurped the throne.  Osar’s loving and devoted wife Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) cut her hair, put on her mourning clothes and went on a quest to find the body of Osar. Initially she had trouble finding the chest containing the body of Osar because she was considered an outlaw in Set’s kingdom.  So, Ra pitying Oset, sent forth Osar’s and Nebhet’s (Nephthy who at the time was the wife of Set) son Npu, to protect and guided Oset to find the deceased king’s body.

As you all know, we are living in a strange yet important time in history.  This society is governed by Set who is the personification of our arrogant, violent, animalistic, lustful, selfish, perverted, uncontrollable, egotistical, lower self.   The society is ruled by fear because the country was created out of fear and the only way to keep the fear in check is to glorify the ego.  So, Nebhet who was married to Set at the time of his coup symbolizes how we are all entertained by our five physical senses.

This is why it is socially acceptable to mimic an athlete, singer, entertainer, etc. then it is to devote yourself to spiritual development. In fact, if you mention to anyone that you are a trying to become a god or goddess. You might have the authorities called on you by your family and/or friends, because you are considered an outlaw like our Mother Oset.

Small Mock Npu Het (Altar for Npu Spirits)

So, in these perilous times where people spend $1000 or more to see grown-ass men run up and down a field with a leather ball, but will refuse to spend $20 for a T-shirt that says, “I am a GOD.”  We need a guide and this guide is Npu who will protect and guide us by introducing us to the magick of beliefs.

We must use magick because the odds are seriously against us and the system is designed for us to struggle and fail. It is very important that you know what your magickal path is and embrace this part of your Maa (truth). In order to escape the various trappings Set has planned because this is going to be the year we make changes.

If you are new to spiritual development and wondering what a magickal path is, first understand that magick is simply the art of manifesting and removing whatever you want at will. For instance, if you are suffering from an ill-ness you want to remove the ill-ness and manifest perfect health.  A magickal path is a system that will help you to achieve your goals based upon a set of beliefs.

There are numerous magickal paths that exist and finding which path works best for you can either be discovered through trial and error or experimentation and divination. Keep in mind that your magickal path means that in this lifetime, the magick you use will be easier than it would be if you follow another path. For instance, you might find it easier to do Law of Attraction magick then work deities in the magico-religious path. Or you might find it easier to do folk magick then to work with amulets and talismans. Here’s a listing of some of the more popular paths:

Folk Magick Path

Chaos Magick Path

Enochian Magick Path

Magico-religious Path

Candle Magick Path

Herbal Magick Path

Talismanic and Amuletic Magic Path

Necromancy Magick Path

Law of Attraction/Manifestation Magickal Path

Necromantic Magick

 





Why They Don’t Want You To Remember You Are A God/Goddess?

20 02 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

I hope that you are all doing well upon reading this post but this is something I have been struggling with for a while.  And, I thought it would be a great time to discuss it as we come to another end of another Black History Month.

So, let me begin by saying that I am grateful for all of the contributions that were made by our historical ancestors such as Fredrick Douglas, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth and the list goes on, but question. Why does Black History begin with our ancestors as captives in this country?

I mean, it is a known fact that majority of our African ancestors who were abducted, kidnapped, enslaved and brought to North America were from Central and West Africa. So, why don’t “they” start Black History stories by stating that Europeans abducted, kidnapped and enslaved people from the Kongo Kingdom, Akan Kingdom, the Kingdom of Benin, the Wagadu (Kingdom of Ghana) and so on?

Again, I am grateful for the inventions made by Garret Morgan, Charles Drew, George Washington Carver, etc. but why don’t “they” state in the beginning that “they” abducted, kidnapped and enslaved scientists, engineers, artists, musicians, inventors, doctors, priests and priestesses, etc.? Instead of alluding that these Garret Morgan, Charles Drew, George Washington Carver, and many others were an exception to the rule?

I mean, I tried watching Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History twice and I simply had to turn it off because it was not a guide but it was the same black history propaganda that you find in most history books.  Please note, I am not knocking the special but simply stating that this is not our purpose.

So, it made me ask why they do not want to talk about real Black History, and the answer that came back is because a lot of people simply do not want to know.

It is easier to accept that Black History began in this country as a slave because to admit that it doesn’t would mean that we were tribal Africans, which in the minds of a lot of people conjures up stereotypical images of black people dancing around fire. In other words, it is easier to accept that Black History began with our ancestors beings slaves because folks don’t want to be African.

And, I get it. It makes sense. Who wants to admit to being an African who lived in a mud hut back then? Who wants to claim that they descended from a people that simply warred and sold their own into slavery? Who wants to align themselves with a “people” who had gold practically falling out of the sky, yet they walked around not valuing it but instead would fight over trinkets? Who wants to align themselves with a people that simply stick pins in dolls and focus more on revenge then on spiritual development? No one does. At least not anyone who is in their right mind.

But, why admit that Black History began before slavery? Because it ties us back to Africa by indicating that our ancestors were members of a tribal nation, who are the descendants of the people that migrated to Central and West Africa from Kemet (Ancient Egypt), initially out of Kush (Ancient Nubia/Ethiopia).

In other words, the reason “they” always start Black History when our recent ancestors were enslaved is to make us forget how old we are and thereby forget our true identity as Gods and Goddesses.

Do you know that the only reason Garret Morgan, Charles Drew, George Washington Carver, and many others were able to advance is because they were given a chance? Please note, I am not trying to take anything away from them and I am not claiming that they did not have any struggles that they had to overcome because I know they did, but think about this.  What would happen if we were all given equal and equitable opportunities? What would happen if we were all given the same chance? Yes, the world would change instantly.

So, when Dr. Carter G. Woodson started Black History week, it served a purpose but now.  Black History month is simply a carrot on the stick to make us chase after the “American Dream” of being accepted as equals but we need to realize.

We are not equal.

There is no one in this world that has undergone the same experience that we have gone through. No one will ever be equal to us and why would we want to be equal to someone in the first place? To be equal means to be ordinary and to be ordinary means to be like everyone else, a follower.

So, where did we get this notion that we should be followers?

From religion.  Religion is a tool for social control and slavery began when our ancestors chose to believe that God existed outside of themselves and not within. We can blame Christianity as much as we want to but the facts are that our ancestors were prepped to be slaves before Christian and Islamic missionaries step foot on African soil.

What I am saying is that we have all been fooled into thinking that slavery was about particular period in time where our recent ancestors were forced to labor in this country and abroad. No, Family. Slavery is a system designed to make people forget who they truly are by taking away their will and desire to be free.

Family. We are Gods and Goddesses, which means all we need to do is decide that we want to do something and do it. If it works for us and helps others that is all that we need.  We don’t need anyone to validate what we do because we are the first to do it, hence the meaning of a God and Goddess. It is time to stop studying history and start invoking it. Instead of just teaching our daughters about Madame C.J. Walker, how about we start teaching our daughters how to be a Goddess like Hatshepsut?  Instead of teaching our sons about Seqenenre Dao who fought against the Hyskos?





Why You Have Bad Luck and How the Ancestors Can Help

22 01 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

We all know or have at least heard of someone who has a lot of bad luck. Such as the lady who keeps getting bad men or the guy who loses all of his savings by investing in a bad deal sponsored by his girlfriend. We also know or at least have heard of someone who just seems to be born lucky, but why aren’t we lucky and how can our spirits (the ancestors and spirit guides) help.

Well, first the reason most of us are not lucky because of our Christian upbringing.  If you were like me, you were most likely raised as a child in a strong Christian household and surrounded by overzealous believers who taught not to believe in luck but in the power of God.  The problem with this approach is that God is so ambiguous and abstract, it is hard for most people to focus on something that they do not understand. Besides no one really knows how God blesses people and what is the criteria for being blessed by God since the rules or laws seem to change per church and denomination.  For this reason, we continue to wish each other good luck in academics, performances, sporting events, etc. because it is awkward saying God bless you not knowing if God is going to bless you or not.  The other thing is, when people say “God bless you.”  It implies that your life is in “God’s” hands, so God can choose to bless you or not.

Consequently, most people have lost their luck because they were taught not to believe in it even though they do and taught to replace good luck with God’s blessings, but they do not know who God is.

I used to believe this as well but I learned that good and bad luck is not some supernatural force rooting in favor for us, but is basically a resulting force created by our beliefs and behaviors. I discovered this one day after buying my first car at a used car dealership lot. I remember I bought the car the day before payday so I was not able to get insurance until the next day.  So, I drove the car off the lot constantly thinking, “I hope I do not get into an accident.”  Well, to make a long story short, the next day it rain real hard and then it stopped and the sun shined like it does all the time in Florida. I was exiting the highway and as I looked into my rearview mirror, I saw this pickup trying its best to come to screeching stop. I remember saying, “He is going to hit me” and sure enough the driver in the pickup did just that.  The guy actually totaled my car.  I was alright and everyone involved was fine but because I did not have insurance I had to pay a fine.

Now, this taught me that my bad luck was created by my beliefs and behavior. It was my constant worrying about not having car insurance and not getting in accident that put me in a position to have an accident.

So, how does working with your spirits prevent you from having bad luck and increase your good luck. Well, when you work with your spirits you eventually come to the conclusion that many do not want you to realize, which is that your soul will survive death, hence you are immortal. The next thing you realize when working with the spirits of the dead is that you have a host of spirits surrounding and rooting in your favor because if you are successful then they are successful and vice versa.  Unlike “God” who has not vested interest in you.

This attitude that you will survive death and that you have a host of spirits surrounding you at all time, means that you can literally achieve any goal you set your mind to.  Since your spirits have no physical bodies, they can go anywhere at anytime and you can easily call upon them to offer you guidance.

That being said, here recently I was driving my car and suddenly I looked up and realized that I was going too fast, so I slowed down and let this driver that was riding my bumper pass.  As soon as I slowed down, a cop car pulled out and pulled over the car that has just passed me, hence the power of my spirits.

So, regularly honor and work with your spirits by keeping affirmative thoughts firmly in your mind and telling them what you want. For instance, when I want to be protected I say “Thank you for protecting me from danger seen and unseen.” I don’t worry how my spirits are going to protect me. I just know that they will.

Now, I know you might be wondering and asking if other people do this and if they don’t why should you. The simple answer to this is that historically our ancestors within this country did do this but stopped when we started giving a damn what other people think about our culture. As a result, we have fallen out of practice culturally but, if we take a proactive stance, instead of a reactive stance.  We can greatly improve all areas of our life.

It’s Not Easy Being A God/Goddess (Why We Work With Spirits)

7 01 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I just wanted to offer you some words of encouragement that my spirit guide just shared with me and it is that it is not easy being a god or goddess. Just because you are on a spiritual path does not mean things get easier.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

In fact, life for human beings is hard because we are restricted to time and space. If you look at the Maa Aankh (above) and think about how we all incarnated to this physical plane (TASETT).  We see that as children, prior to incarnating to the physical plane, we came out of the spiritual realm (KAMTA) and from the Amun Ra moment, which means we were all, all knowing and powerful.  We could see everything and do anything because we did not have a physical body.  Then, as soon as we were physically born through the Khepera moment.  We slowly and surely lose all our wisdom and power as we grow older.  Then, as soon as we become fully accustomed to our physical body, we totally forget who we are and become conditioned to life in TASETT (the physical realm). So, the living have the physical means to make change but through the birthing and conditioning process lose the knowledge and wisdom to implement change.

For ancestral spirits and spirit guides, there existence isn’t that much better either because when people physical die. They are no longer fretted by their physical body and are able to express themselves and go anywhere freely because they have returned to their spiritual nature. But, in order to create physical change they need a body, so they lose the ability to do this. Not to mention the fact, that if they do not have anyone who remembers them, they do not receive offerings regularly.  So benevolent ancestors and spirit guides acquire the knowledge and wisdom to implement change but lack the physical means to do so.

For gods and goddesses it gets worse because most gods and goddesses were once upon a time human beings. But, after many successful incarnations they no longer need to enter the wheel of reincarnation.  When gods and goddesses return they must go through the birthing and conditioning stage, but because of their high and exalted status.   They are able to retain their knowledge and wisdom as benevolent ancestors and spirit guides, and use it beyond the Khepera moment. Since they have gone through the birthing and conditioning phase, unlike benevolent ancestor and spirit guides, they are able to implement physical change. Since gods and goddesses have the knowledge and wisdom of benevolent ancestral spirits and spirit guides, combined with the physical means of the living.  Most gods and goddesses only return to the physical realm when great calamities strikes and when they physically die. Gods and goddesses are remembered as learned men and women.

However, life for a god and goddess is hard because usually people do not recognize them when they are walking amongst them. As a result, most gods and goddesses are either robbed, wrongly persecuted and at times murdered by the very people they are trying to save.

This is the reason it is important for gods and goddesses not to get too attached to this physical world.

Therefore, we venerate our benevolent ancestors and spirit guides, so that they can share their knowledge and wisdom with us.  While we through our physical body make the necessary physical changes.

I say all this to say, that if you are experiencing any type of obstacle, know that it is meant to remind you that you are a god or goddess.  Remember who you are.

When Did You Realize You Were A God/Goddess?

16 12 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

When did you realize you were a god/goddess? What was the first successful magick/miracle you performed that convinced you of your divinity?

For me, although I had heard people all over recite Psalms 82:6  which states: “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” And, John 10:34 that says “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?”  I was not convinced that I was a god because I did not have any experience that supported this belief.

I didn’t realized I was a god until I studied the Maa Aankh cosmogram and understood that the flesh part of me, the physical part of my being, or the sahu (subconscious) part of my being is not the whole me.  Although I walk around and conduct my day-to-day affairs through my sahu out of habit, it is not only the physical manifestation of me but a very limited and minute part of my entire being. Hidden from physical sight is my more powerful and advanced spiritual self called my BA (Superconscious).

I remember that when it finally dawned on me that I am the Divine Being and that one part of my being is known (the sahu part), while the other part of me is an unknown mystery (the BA part).  It immediately made sense to me that the reason we all have so many problems in our life is because we try to solve our problems based upon our subconscious, habitual and conditioned sahu understanding personified as Set; instead of tapping into the Superconscious, infinite and unconditional BA personified as Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris).

In other words, the BA is the part of me that performs magick and miracles, which I will never understand because as soon as I comprehend it, that is when the magick and miracles ceases.

God allows magick to work, to show you that it is possible. – Unknown

I remember the first time, I tested my theory, I was unable to walk due to an illness and I had read a story of how a lady healed herself by promising to take Lazarus (Lazaro) statue’s crutches away from him.  Upon reading the story, automatically I heard thoughts of how this lady’s story was fake, silly and stupid. Immediately, all sorts of thoughts rushed my head about how ridiculous and impossible it would be to heal myself by taking away the crutches of a statue. I quickly identified this voice as my ego-self, my sahu personified as my Set, which only believes in what it sees and has been conditioned to accept as truth based upon my family and society’s standards.

When I did the little ritual to heal my body so that I could walk again by focusing on dancing and remembering that when the Yoruba orisha Babaluaiye was healed he danced out of sheer joy and excitement.  It was strange and weird to have the image of an old white man with crutches before me, but when I made the same promise to take away the crutches when I was healed. That is when it became apparent that the strangeness of the ritual triggered the Higher part of my being.  I know the ritual triggered it because I could feel my spidey-sense (scalp of my head) tingle.   That is when I realized that the BA does not distinguish between black and white images, which is something that a lot of people get hung up on because we like to see images of our selves instead of others. The BA understands that everything was Spirt and that Lazarus (Lazaro) symbolized that energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transformed like the soil of a cemetery becomes resting spot or container for departed souls. Therefore, Lazarus is Sokar, the Kemetic lord of the cemetery, which some also call Sekert (the feminine energy of death and resurrection), called Lazarus in Christianity also known as Omolu or Obaluwaye (Babaluaiye) the son of Nana Buluku.

Yes, my Higher Spirit knew this and even though I did not know how this miracle/magick was going to work.  This Higher part of my being understood it because as the Swiss psychiatrists stated, It is composed of “collective unconsciousness.”  This in strict laymen folk terms means “spirits” and when I issued a command  for the higher part of my being to accomplish the task of making me walk. I realized that it could work on multiple tasks all at the same time, while I live my day-to-day life dealing with other things. Metaphorically speaking, spirits and/or angels are working on my behalf based upon the command issued to them because they are an extension of my true Self.

That’s when it became clear, I am a god and later when I found myself running up and down the stairs because of an emergency. That’s when I realized that I created my own miracle/magick and therefore, I am the author of my own reality.

Family.  We have all been tricked into believing that we are powerless creatures of fate and that this physical reality that we have been born into is final. This thousand year old trick is due to us being taught that God is outside of our being and therefore even when we leave our birth religion.  We superimpose this same belief to other spiritual practices which results in us worshipping our ancestors and worshipping other entities outside of our being.

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

The Right Eye of Ra , which is associated with the Ra moment on the Maa Aankh. It is also known as the Solar Eye and corresponds to literal and physical sight, hence the failure to see abstract and spiritual concepts.

The truth is that we are powerless if we rely solely upon the sahu part of our being, which is totally based upon what we have physically learned and been conditioned to accept, hence the Right Eye of Ra.

We cannot change our current situation using the same mindset that created them, hence the reason Set is called the Lord of Chaos and Confusion.

The only way to change our reality is by relying upon our Higher Self.  When we rely upon the Higher part of our being, the mystical and magickal part of our being, the BA (Divine Spark) gives us access to the power of the Divine.

All we need to do to change our reality is impress upon our Higher Spirit what we desire and want.

The key that we need to remember is that we need to stop worrying and thinking about how it works and accept that it works. You don’t know how electricity works yet, you are able to use it. The same approaches needs to be taken in regards to our BA.

We need to stop trying to convince and prove to other people that it works and just let it work. Magick is our cultural technology, which we have been taught to be ashamed of because others don’t understand it.

Family. If other people don’t believe it, so what. It is not our job to convince them or try to convert them to our way because our spirituality is not their (or anyone else’s for that matter) religion.

It is your religion, which means all that matters is that you believe it works.

All that matters is that you find a way to temporarily shut your sahu (subconscious) off so that you can access your BA (Superconscious).

 This means work your maa (truth, way)!

Three Powerful Ways to Use the Kemetic Kongo Cross for Spiritual Healing

10 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

When the Africans were kidnapped and brought to the Americas, contrary to popular belief, the Africans taken to North America did not lose their culture. What the Africans taken to North America loss was the philosophy and theology behind their cultural practices, which regressed into a superstition.Never Forget

“Superstition” Luisah Teish author of Jambalaya: The Natural Woman’s Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals defines as “…a belief or practice whose origin and context has been lost to us and/or is in conflict with the beliefs of the dominating culture”.

So when I learned that the first Africans brought to the Americas and North America were from the Kongo-Angolan region, and that remnants of their culture survived through slavery such as: 1) the cultural practice of placing images of deceased loved ones in the western direction of the home; 2) the belief that ancestors visit us in our dreams and reincarnate as “old souls” through our children; and. 3) Most African Americans have a common understanding of the crossroad concept, and much more.  I was very excited to learn about the Kongo religion in hopes of learning about my loss heritage.

Kongo Cross used for Ventilation during Underground Railroad at First African Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia.

But, because the Kongo-Angolan people were the first of the Africans to be brought to the Americas, their region was also the most devastated through slavery, imperialism and later ravaged by various civil wars. Consequently, this meant that most of the Old Kongo cultural beliefs were either lost and/or obsolete.

Thankfully, understanding that the Kongo-Angolan people were Bantu speaking people and that the Bantu or Ba-Ntu migrated from Kemet, helped me to understand my ancestral heritage from a more profound perspective. Through one-ton-one correspondence between the Kemetic and Kongo traditions I discovered a cosmogram, which became known as the Maa Aankh.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The Maa Aankh cosmogram is based upon the remnants of the Bantu-Kongo spirituality that survived in North America that has been syncretized with Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) philosophy.  Like most cosmograms or medicine wheels, the Maa Aankh can be interpreted in numerous ways. The general understanding is that our universe is composed of two worlds or two lands and they are: above the imperfect world of the living called TASETT (the Red Lands or the Land of Set/Set-an and Ku Nseke in KiKongo), and below. The perfect world of dead called KAMTA (the Black Lands also known as the Land or Kingdom of Osar/Osiris, hence the Underworld and Ku Mpemba/the Land of White in KiKongo). These two lands are divided by a thin veil called Nyun, but are bridged together through Maa.

Surrounding these two lands are four discs symbolizing the four attributes of Ra (the Life Force) and the four moments of the Sun: Khepe Ra (Sunrise or Kala in KiKongo), Ra (Midday or Tukula in KiKongo), Ra Atum (Sunset or Luvemba in KiKongo) and Amun Ra (Midnight or Musoni in KiKongo).

The Four Ras also signify:

  • The Evolution of the Soul: Khepera (Sunrise/Birth), Ra (Midday/Life), Ra Atum (Sunset/Death) and Amun Ra (Midnight/Rebirth)
  • The Four Directions: Khepera (East), Ra (North), Ra Atum (West) and Amun Ra (South)
  • The Four Seasons: Khepera (Spring), Ra (Summer), Ra Atum (Fall) and Amun Ra (Winter)
  • The Four Elements: Khepera (Air), Ra (Fire), Ra Atum (Earth), and Amun Ra (Water)
  • The Four Phases of Life: Khepera (intellectual), Ra (physical), Ra Atum (emotional) and Amun Ra (spiritual)
  • The Four Stages of Life: Khepera (infancy), Ra (adolescences), Ra Atum (elder-hood) and Amun Ra (ancestors)
  • The Four Temperaments/Humors: Khepera (Black Bile), Ra (Blood), Ra Atum (Yellow Bile) and Amun Ra (Phlegm)
  • The Four Sons of Hru (Heru or Horus): Khepera (Tuamatef protects the stomach and guide the dead), Ra (Hapi protects the lungs and navigated the dead), Ra Atum (Qebehsenuf protects the intestines and refreshed the dead) and Amun Ra (Amset protects the liver and was used to revive the corpse of the dead.)

And there are other correlations that can be made as well such as the stages of consciousness,  family dynamics, etc. but to mention them all would take us beyond the scope of this post.

The center of the Maa Aankh represents a culmination of one’s spiritual and physical gifts, one’s physical and spiritual balance, and/or one’s ability to ascend from the Four Ra to an enlightened position in the center.

Therefore, there are numerous ways you can use the Maa Aankh all depending on what feels right to you.  However, below are three powerful ways that I have benefited from the Maa Aankh.

The Maa Aankh as a Guide for Spiritual Progress

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

“Live in the moment” and “Understand your past, so you can determine your future” are all relevant sayings when it comes to contemplating on the moments of the Maa Aankh.  To perform this simple exercise simply think about which moment resonates with you the most and your spiritual spiritual progress. For instance, whenever I begin to see a lot of problems (financial, health, family, career, etc.) occurring in my life. Depending on the severity, I can look on the Maa Aankh and see that I am entering the Ra Moment.  Since the Ra Moment corresponds to the youthfulness or adolescences, which is fully of rashness and folly.  The Ra Moment signifies where most of our problems occur due to social conditionings, peer pressure and the lack of spiritual insight or wisdom, hence the Right Eye of Ra.  Therefore, during this time I am reminded that I need to seek wisdom and spiritual insight or an oracle as signified by the polar opposite to get a full or holistic picture.  (The polar opposite of the Ra Moment is the Amun Ra Moment).

 

The Maa Aankh as a Crossroad

The Maa Aankh naturally symbolizes two intersecting points thus making a crossroad where two worlds meet.  From this perspective, the Maa Aankh can be found anywhere because it represents where the known (TASETT) meets the unknown (KAMTA).  For instance, the Maa Aankh can be found where a town meets the forest/woods, the city meets the cemetery or the city meets a park, a beach shore meets the ocean, your home meets the outside of your home, and even psychologically where your subconscious meets your Superconscious.  Therefore, the threshold between these two “lands” is the powerful center, which can be used to say your prayers, to meditate, place offerings such as candles and/or express your gratitude.  Simply draw or trace it on the ground and use it as you feel.

The Maa Aankh as a Spiritual Guide

However, I personally prefer to use the Maa Aankh as a spiritual guide alongside the Story of Osar based upon African tribal history, metaphysics and spiritualism.

To understand this perspective we need to go back to a time before Kemet was a united kingdom and consisted of warring tribes. From this perspective, the Story of Osar is not a mythological legend consisting of numerous gods and goddesses, but a metaphorical story between two opposing tribal leaders.

According to legend, before Kemet was united into one kingdom, it was divided into two regions and governed by two brothers:  Upper Kemet in the southern region was symbolized by the white Hedjet crown and governed by the eldest brother Osar.  While Lower Kemet or the northernmost part of the region, which was symbolized by the red Deshret crown was ruled by the youngest brother Set.

Now, at the time when these two chieftain ruled, the people of Kemet were constantly at war with one another. Until one day Osar dreamt of ways of uniting the two lands into one country, which led him to developing spiritual teachings (or some say a religion).  After applying these teachings, Osar traveled the country teaching all of his countrymen how to live in peace with one another, and the science of agriculture, which he learned from his wife/sister Oset (Isis). Consequently, the teachings of Osar spread like wildfire and in a relatively short time, brothers ceased warring with one another.  Osar later became king and he was loved by everyone for unifying the two lands and bringing peace and prosperity to the region. All were grateful to Osar except for Set, who was so envious of Osar that he plotted and killed the first king of Kemet, then usurped the throne. 

Everyone feared Set’s tyrannical rule except for Oset (Aset) who fled and magically conceived Osar’s heir, Hru.  When Hru came of age, he challenged Set for the throne but was unable to defeat his father’s youngest brother. Then, in one critical battle, Set managed to gouge Hru’s eye, thereby forcing the young prince to barely escape with his life.  Hru fled to see his father’s old friend and vizier Djahuti, who repaired the young prince’s left eye perfectly.

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

The next time Hru engaged in battle with Set, he swiftly and quickly defeated him and forced his uncle to surrender.  Even after being defeated militarily Set, refused to yield and campaigned against Hru by claiming that he was not Osar’s legitimate heir.  As a result, the campaign was so successful that a tribunal was convened to decide who would rule the kingdom, but after hearing the both sides.  The tribunal still could not come to a decision for some favored Hru while others ruled in favor of Set. Finally, Djahuti made it possible for Osar to speak from beyond the grave.  After which Osar verified that Hru was his heir and encouraged the tribunal to rule truthfully because he established a kingdom in the Underworld where he was now the head judge.  Upon hearing Osar’s testimony the tribunal ruled in Hru’s favor and awarded him the white and red Pschent crown.

There are numerous ways that this story can be interpreted but my understanding of the Story based upon the Maa Aankh is that: 1) Hru defeated Set in battle because he had his spiritual eye repaired, and. 2) Hru reclaimed his inheritance because of his ancestor, Osar.

Therefore, the Maa Aankh can be used as a spiritual guide for working with one’s ancestors and spirits. It indicates that the relationship between the living and the dead should be more like a business partnership, where both the living and the spirits benefit. The Maa Aankh explains the difference between the living and the spirits of the dead by indicating that the living are limited because of the physical laws of time and space. Meaning although we can experience life (eating food, pleasures of friendship, sex, etc.), our physical bodies are a trap that prevent us growing spiritually, because we cannot see beyond the physical. Hence the reason we have so many problems in our life is because we lack insight and wisdom, and must rely solely upon our intellect and what we have previously learned.

On the flip side, since the spirits of the dead have the ability to see anything and everything because they are not limited by the physical laws of time and space due to not having a physical body.  However, the lack of a physical body prevents them from truly experiencing life and thus spiritually growing.

However, by forming an alliance or partnership between the living and the spirit of the dead, the living are able to use the insight and wisdom of the spirit of the dead to improve their life, while the spirit of the dead are able to use the physical body of the living to spiritually evolve.  In other words, neither the living or the spirit of the dead are more superior than the other. Both, the living and the spirit of the dead are on equal footing are suppose to profit the relationship, hence the relationship between Hru and Osar.

By using the Maa Aankh as a spiritual guide for working with spirits, we can see that many (if not most) of the spirits that give churchgoers the “gift of the Holy Ghost” via speaking-in-tongues, etc. are really trickster spirits taking advantage of peoples’ ignorance. Proof that these are trickster spirits can be seen in the fact that no true wisdom or spiritual power is being offered, which is the reason as soon as people leave Sunday worship they lose their Holy Ghost and return to their ill-behavior ways.  Another sign that trickster spirits are leeching off of uninformed churchgoers is that the physical church is steadily growing while communities they serve are steadily seeking in despair.

At the same time, benevolent spirits of the dead will only approach the living if they believe that they can profit from the relationship and offer spiritual insight in return. This is the reason everyone does not have a La Madama or Uncle/Nkisi (Bucket) spirit guide. By using the Maa Aankh as a spiritual guide, you are able to set the rule between you and your spirits that your relationship is basically a “quid pro quo” meaning “I give you something and expect to get something in return (because that’s Maa)”. Therefore, every time you pray, meditate or do a ritual, you should make an offering in return.

The Double Pschent Crown

The Double White & Red Pschent Crown

When you are working with a higher spirits you will sense flashes of insight as if suddenly the “light is coming on”, which symbolizes the white Hedjet crown of Osar.

It was through working with my ancestors in this manner that I learned that Osar corresponds to the Superconscious or Higher Self and Set to our subconscious or lower self.

So, these are some of the ways that I have truly benefitted from using the Maa Aankh. Hopefully, these methods can help you in your spiritual road as well.

What is the Real Difference between Magick and Spirituality?

4 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, I remember when I first started on this spiritual path, like many people from a Christian background, I was immediately attracted to religious practices that my parents and other Christians frowned upon. For instance, I went out my way to visit the brightly colored candle shop in Detroit on 7 Mile that my parents discouraged me from doing, as we drove to and from church. I went out of my way to talk to actual authentic rootworkers whom I was told by religious people were either strange and/or evil.  I went out of my way to talk to practitioners in Lukumi (Santeria) and Palo Mayombe because Christians told me that they worshipped the devil. I have even learned from people who practice both the Brazilian Candomble and Macumba.  But, I followed the Kemetic path because my spirit inspired me to do so and informed me that the Ancient Egyptians were not idol worshippers. Basically, a large portion of my spiritual understanding simply was the result of me rebelling against my conditioned upbringing.

But, I remember there were a few families whom I met on this path that turned their back on traditional/spiritual way.  For instance, I remember I met a priestesses whom after years of struggle, returned to the church to save her marriage and unite her family.  In another family I knew where the children were raised in the spiritual tradition, two of the children when they got older did not want to have anything to do with the tradition.  The youngest child converting to Christianity, condemned the practice altogether and as far as I know, is actively persecuting his parents for their involvement in the African derived tradition.

Exu Marabo and Exu with Pomba Gira on Macumba Altar

All of this really made me wonder why would people leave our traditional way for the religion of our oppressor.  At first I thought that maybe it was because they were not serious about the tradition and saw it as a fad, but that didn’t explain why the family that was raised in an African tradition would turn their back on it.  Then, I thought that maybe it was because these people do not know their history but, that response did not explain why the priestess I knew converted back to the religion to save her marriage and family. Then, I met my godfather, a practicing spiritist, and a member of the Abakua Society who had been practicing Lukumi all of his life in Cuba before migrating to the States.

I remember asking him a very serious, yet silly question based upon all that I had read about African religions and traditions.  I asked him, “Why is it that all they do in Santeria is do magic?”

And, he told me something (in Spanish) that I would never forget, which was that “Lukumi es muy espiritual pero debes conocer tu Manera,” which translates to “Lukumi is very spiritual but you have to know your Way.

I have spent a lot of time writing about La Manera or the Way because it is what the Kemetic sages called Maa, which is not simply about the law, the truth, balance, etc.  It is about your Law, your Truth, what Balances you, etc.

It came to me some time later that my question was silly but a good one because the reason people convert back to the religion of their oppressor is because they do not have Knowledge of Self.

Knowledge of Self is not just knowing that you are god and a goddess and running around saying “Peace God/Goddess!”

Knowledge of Self is about knowing that your lower self or your ego-self is dominating your life, dominating the way you think, and controlling the way you talk and behave.  If you are having any problems in your life, it can be traced back to your lower self because you have been conditioned to follow it.  In other words, you are in the habit of listening to this part of your being. Things seem gloom in this world because people are controlled by their lower self but, there is an alternative way.

We do not have to follow our lower self. We can have a better life. We can have a healthy life. We can have a loving marriage and healthy children. We can have a prosperous business.  We do not have to live in tyranny of our lower self.  We can reach out and connect with our Higher Self with the understanding that we have to put whatever we want in the Higher Self’s hands.

This is where the magick comes into play. It is magical and mysterious how our Higher Self or Superconscious works, which is the reason the old biblical writers called it God, then later these Christians called it Jesus.  But, they got the idea from our Kemetic Ancestors who personified the Higher Self or Superconscious as Osar.  They did not worship Osar.  They realized that it was our Higher Self, which is an individual’s True God.

So, if I declare “Thank you for perfect health” over and over before I go to sleep, when I wake, when I am driving, when I am taking a shower, and basically every time I get a chance. Eventually, my lower (subconscious) self is going to hand this declaration to my Higher (Superconscious) Self. And, as soon as I forget that I made the declaration, that’s when my miracle or magic will manifest in the physical.

That’s it! I know it seems to easy and good to be true, but magick is simply programming your entire Spirit (Higher and Lower Self). Now, for some people repeating declarations does not get it for them, so they prefer to chant a mantra, while others may choose to inscribe it on a candle.  Still others might find it better to create a sigil, which are all methods discussed in the The Kamta Primer.  It does not matter what method you use because they are all techniques used to program your Spirit or do magic.

But, most people come into this based upon a warped understanding. As a result, we spend a whole lot of time focusing on the technique or the tools, instead of on the nuts and bolts, which is all about our Higher Self.

Family. This is what “they” want us to do. “They” want us to argue back and forth about on what technique is best.  “They” want us to see all of this hell occurring in the streets and be discouraged by it and/or think we are powerless.  When all we have to do is declare it and allow our Spirit(s) to deal with it.

“They” want us to be confused about who we are. “They” want us to convert back to their social control but it is not working, which is the reason you are reading this post and others like it.

Don’t get caught up in the trap of thinking it is all about magick.  It is all about staying connected to our Higher Self, our Osar.

Mathematically We Are Divine Beings

3 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know one of the things that has always amazed me about the Kemetic sages was their love of mathematics and the need for everything to make sense. Anyone who has studied the Kemetic philosophy and their metaphysics will know exactly what I am talking about.

For instance, did you know that the Kemetic Eye of Hru is composed of the following fractions?

Mathematical Eye Copyright 2016 Derric Moore

Did you know that each of these fractions that make up a fraction of the Eye corresponds to a physical aspect of the human being from the smallest to largest? (Ok. Math Review. The top number of the fraction is called the numerator and the bottom number the denominator.  The larger the denominator the smaller the fraction).  Therefore, from least to greatest:

  • 1/64 corresponds to the Sense of Touch symbolized by one leg standing on the ground.
  • 1/32 corresponds to the Sense of Taste the curve tail symbolizes a stalk of grain thus referring to taste.
  • 1/16 corresponds to the Sense of Hearing symbolized by an arrow pointing to the ear.
  • 1/8 corresponds to Thought symbolized by raised eyebrow.
  • 1/4 corresponds to the Sense of Sight symbolized by the pupil.
  • 1/2 corresponds to the Sense of Smell symbolized by the nose.

This means that what we refer to as reality is based largely upon our Sense of Smell (1/2) and Sight (1/4) than upon what we actually physically experience (1/64).  What we imagine and smell has a greater influence then what we physically experience, hence the Universe is Mental.  The ability to smell and see are actually the oldest functions of the human brain. In other words, this reveals from the Kemetic perspective the evolution of consciousness. Pretty amazing stuff right?

Did you know that when you add all of these fractions together the sum is 63/64? Pretty cool.

But, what is the missing 1/64 fraction to make it a 64/64 = 1 whole?

Those familiar with the Kemetic Story of Osar know that the missing 1/64 is intuition.  According to the Story of Osar, Hru was unable to defeat his evil uncle Set because Set had managed to gouge Hru’s eye out.  In desperation Hru fled to find Djahuti who repaired his eye perfectly. After which, our hero was able to defeat Set on the battlefield but he was unable to fully reclaim to crown until his father Osar spoke on his behalf and the tribunal ruled in Hru’s favor.

The missing 1/64 represents all of the spirits, which also contribute to the evolution of human consciousness.

The Eye of Hru also known as the Left Eye of Ra or Lunar Eye of Ra, corresponds to the intuitive and spiritual aspect of our being, hence insight.

What this means is that we all must go through some ordeal (fight with Set symbolized as a journey through TASETT), which will lead us to brush shoulders with all of the spirits (in KAMTA), so that we can gain wisdom.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

If we refuse to gain wisdom from our spirits, we will never get a holistic view of life or achieve Maa (Balance, Truth, Order, Justice, Righteousness, etc.) in our life. We will always be dominated by the Right Eye of Ra or Solar Eye, which corresponds to the literal and material aspect of life.

Therefore, it is important that we never forget our spirits because they help us to gain insight or to see the whole picture. Remember, they do not have a physical body so they can see things that we are not able to physically see, which gives us a better understanding of who we are.

God’s Purpose is Not to Fix IT for You (The Misconceptions About Salvation)

3 11 2018

In this day and age, there are a lot of people talking about becoming or being more spiritual but they overlook one of the most quoted biblical scriptures and simplest, yet most difficult practices, which is to “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God.”

The reason most of us overlook this scripture and misinterpret the practice is because we have all been taught that God is a tyrannical deity who stands billions of miles over earth and hurls thunderbolts at the wicked. Sidebar: Yeah, most people still do not believe that they are really worshipping an aspect of the Greek god Zeus but that’s another story.

Consequently, because of our view of God we have been taught that God can fix anything and everything, so we always put God last. That’s right! We have been taught to make every decision and do everything without God, and when things do not go right…

Pray and beg God to fix it.

For instance, spend all of your money on frivolous purchases but when you do not have any money. Pray to God to fix it.

Misuse your body by eating whatever you like, ingesting whatever substances you desire, want,  and abusing your body with lack of physical exercises.  Then, when you are diagnosed with an illness. Pray to God to fix it.

Talk to your love one anyway you want. Disrespect him or her publicly and privately. Cheat behind his or her back. Then, when he or she says, “I love you but I cannot live with you.” Now, it is time to, let the church say, “Pray to God to fix it.”

Image result for zeus

According to Greek mythology Zeus is a rapist, a terrible husband, horrible father, murderous son, a deceitful brother, and an egotistical grandson, yet people still don’t understand why America is the way it is.

Family. If God could fix everything, why doesn’t God fix everything and everyone anyway? Is God bias?  Put aside the childish idea that God has a plan to save everyone by having everyone experience misery. Again, that is the greek god Zeus who deliberately places hardships in peoples’ paths solely for entertainment or to be “saved.” So, first lets understand that it is not God but god (Zeus) that most people worship.

The Supreme Being or Creator of us all is the creator of everything.  This means that the Creator is not bias, which is the reason the same air that fills our lungs also fills the lungs of our enemies.  The reason the Creator does not save is because it is the Creator who is Perfect and we are striving for perfection. Thus, “saving us” does us a big disservice because it does help us to grow, mature and learn our lesson. Imagine saving a child learning how to walk from falling every time, they would never learn how to get back up after falling.

This means that the god most people are worshipping is not only hindering them but trying to keep them in an infantile mind state, by saving some and not all.  This of course is a fallacy, because only you can save yourself and this is done by going within instead of seeking god outside of our being.

The reason we all have made this same grave error (even those of us in the spiritual community) is because we were taught to worship a bias, tyrannical deity outside of our being.  We were never taught that the true Kingdom of God is within and it is our Higher Self. Since we were not taught that the Kingdom of God is within and it is our Higher Self, we ignore all of the gut wrenching impulses that our Higher Self gives us throughout life.

If we were taught to communicate with our Higher Self properly, then it would have told us that it might not be wise to buy that lava lamp.  It would have told us that s/he is crazy and will fill your life with all sorts of drama. If we knew how to communicate with our Higher Self, we would have heard it telling us “Don’t consume anymore or you are going to be hugging the porcelain bowl later.”

The scripture should have read “Seek ye first the Kingdom (of God) within” and then proceed, which means talk to your Higher Self and ask is the choice or decision you are about to make regarding your money a wise one.  Ask your Higher Self before consuming and/or ingesting anything if it is right for you.  Ask your Higher Self, will the individual you are attracted to be good for you and then, ask it to guide you through the relationship if so.

Remember our Higher Self is wise, omnipotent and omnipresent, which is the reason our Kemetic ancestors symbolized it as Osar (Osiris).  Our Osar is always near and ready to serve but it will not intercede on our behalf unless called upon to do so or an extreme emergency. Most people call upon their Osar only during an emergency because we have been conditioned to be reactive, but our ancestors achieved greatness by choosing to be proactive.

Here are some simple ways to be proactive in the morning:

Upon waking up in the morning repeat the following declaration (as many times as you like), “Thank you for a peaceful, fun, productive and financially prosperous day.”

This simple declaration affirms that you are going to have “a peaceful, fun, productive and financially prosperous day.”  You don’t know how it is going to happen but you are affirming that your Osar will make it occur. I must say, I have practiced this and situations that I thought were going to be difficult had mysteriously smoothed themselves out. Note, results will vary based upon an individual’s conditionings, which is the reason when affirmations are not applied correctly they have varying results.  By repeating (or chanting) the declaration prior to getting out of bed causes the command to be more receptive because you are in twilight trance state. Now, if you cannot chant the declaration when you get up, no worries. You can chant it anytime you are doing some menial tasks like taking a shower, washing dishes, doing chores, driving, etc. because these are all times that our Higher Self can speak to us.

Another way to be proactive is as I stated earlier, talk to your Osar before making a choice or decision. Your Osar will usually answer back quickly but if you are not receiving a quick response it is because your stress and worry about the situation at hand is preventing the answer from coming through clearly. Simply relax, which is usually hard to do when you are in crisis so instead, meditate, take a shower, wash some dishes, do some chores, take a drive, go to sleep, etc. because these are all times that your Osar can speak to you without being interrupted by your lower self or Set.  This is the reason many spiritual disciplines recommend that you do a charitable act so that you can shift your focus off of your lower self or Set, hence the reason Osar is also the Lord of Unity.

If we were a little more proactive, we would easily find our self being less and less reactive, which means that we would not be so easily swayed by our emotions.

The Purpose of Deity Altars

1 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

There are a lot of people who are beginning to awake to this path and the one question I get all the time from newcomers is “Can we put the altars together?” or “Can we mix our altars with our ancestors and other spirits (deities), etc.?” Before answering this, I have to remind you of the difference between religion and spirituality.

We must remember that religion is a systematic practice that has been done over the years.  By a group of people in devotion to an entity in order to receive a particular outcome. For instance, many Christians believe that in order for Jesus/God to protect and bless them, they must attend church on a regular basis and strive to live a life absent of sin.

But, spirituality is a way of life that may or may not consists of a set of practices that focuses on aligning an individual with their Higher Self or Osar to master specific lessons in life. Spirituality is not about worshipping an entity but becoming the entity. To comprehend this perspective, it must be understood that we are all born with specific temperaments, talents, behaviors, etc., which most will can assign to a specific zodiac.  For instance, I was born under the Pisces zodiac sign and I exhibit most (if not all) of the Pisces traits of a man such as being trustworthy, loyal, sensual, psychic, attracted to the occult, etc but I also have some of the negative traits such as being smug and sarcastic, etc.

Now these are all traits that have helped me to survive but there are 11 other zodiac signs, which means that I cannot behave like a Piscean man all the time.  If I am smug to my wife, she will become highly irritated and I might find myself sleeping on the couch. If I am smug or sarcastic to my daughter, she might misinterpret my behavior and indiscriminately imitate it or think that men are supposed to act this way. So, what I have to do is learn how to transcend my zodiac. Said another way, overcome my natal personality, ego-self or Set, which is a bulk of what spirituality is about.  There are numerous ways that this can be accomplished but one of the ways is through erecting altars.

So, when an altar is built by those who are on the religious path, they will recommend that you do not combine or mix the energies because they are following the rules of their religion. Remember, religion is focused on worshipping a particular entity.  The reason these rules must be followed to the letter is usually because this is how the founders of that religion established that religion. For instance, in some denominations of Christianity, devotees are not supposed to have any images of any other divinity. Most Christian adherents will state that this is because it is considered idolatry.  The occult truth is that this is one of the rules that devotees of the entity most Christians refer to as “God” must follow to receive God’s blessings.

Mock altar to Npu (Anubis is the Kemeitc Guardian of the dead and roads.

Now, if you are setting up an altar from a spiritualist perspective.  You are free to combine and mix the energies because the entities on the altar symbolize a different aspect of your Higher Self. Remember, the Higher Self is another term for what the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung called the collective unconsciousness, which is compose of numerous archetypes. Therefore, when you choose to erect an altar to a particular entity, what you are really doing is choosing to become that entity. For instance, if a man wants to muster up some courage to talk to his boss about being considered for a promotion or raise. Then, he might erect an altar space for Hru (Horus). He would purchase red and white items and also Hru totems such as horses, bulls, rams, etc., He may meditate on these items or simple arrange them in a way that he sees fit until one day Hru seeing his commitment and devotion decide to send the man a sign synchronistically (I know I just made up that word).  Such as one of the man’s ancestors visits with him in his dreams or he happens to watching television and suddenly have an epiphany, etc. There are numerous ways that the spirits can interact with us but they are all meant to help us to become them so that we can achieve a goal, not worship them.

Therefore, if the same guy decides that he wants to work with another energy like Oset, but does not have the space, or work with Npu he can add items for Oset or Npu on the same altar space. The idea that the Hru and Oset are going to get upset because they are sharing space is basically your lower-self talking because the subconscious is extremely logical and structured.

Now eventually when you have the space you would want to build a separate altar space for them but this is only because your relationship with the energy/deity will grow and will require it. Again, it is not necessary because you are not worshipping the entity. You are worshipping yourself-to be exact your Higher Self. You are invoking the entity and trying to become them in your walking life to accomplish specific tasks.

It is important you always keep this in mind the spiritual purpose of working with deities so that you do not lose sight and fall into the religious trap and find yourself worshipping an entity outside of yourself.

Oset (Isis) says, “Don’t Sweat the Little Stuff!”

17 10 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Recently, I have had some unplanned events take place in my life, which have caused some major issues with my family.  Reflecting back on the Maa Aankh and remembering that peace does not last always, I understand that I am going through the rebirthing process, which is the Ra Atum (Dying RA/Setting Sun) to Amun Ra (Rebirthing RA/Midnight Moon). It is the most mysterious period that we all must go through in order for our conscious/Ab-soul to evolve. This is the time when we receive the most insight and visits from the spirit world, so I am reminded to keep my eye open (stay openminded) and stay persistent because jewels of wisdom can come at any moment.

Then it happened. The other day I was reminded of how I began this journey.  Out of the blue, I began thinking about all of the accomplishments that the Kemetic people achieved. I remember that I was introduced to Kemetic history by an architecture instructor at college. It was through him I learned that despite what I was told about the Kemetic people being so-called pagans, these ancient dwellers on the Nile had been practicing architecture, engineering and medicine centuries before the Greeks and Romans stepped on the world stage.

I thought back and remembered that so much time was spent listing the accomplishments that the Kemetic people made and studying the works of Cheikh Anta Diop because: 1) during the late 1980s and early 1990s there was a lot of people who were trying their best to discredit many of the Afro-centric scholars by claiming that the Kemetic people were not black and brown Africans, and. 2) These same individuals who backed by renowned US institutions also try to claim that people of African descent did not make any contributions to the world. In other words, they were trying to disprove that there was a cultural connection between the Kemetic people and other Africans throughout the Afro-Diaspora.

In other words, it was meant for many of us to go through this period of learning the facts, dates, etc. so that we can build our cultural intellect.  To which I am grateful for all of the scholars (John H. Clarke, Dr. Ben, Carter G. Woodson, George Jackson, Amos Wilson, Ivan Van Sertima, Dr. Bunseki Fu-Kiau, and many more) who have paved the way for us to have this conversation. But, I am reminded that this is not why I am here.

As I engage in conversation with the Spirit I am reminded that the Kemetic people were meticulous about keeping records and writing down important texts but in their thousand year reign.  They did not write any texts on how to get more money, how to get a better job, how to have a successful marriage and how to raise your child.  Surely, they had many of the problems that many of us face today by evidence of the various proverbial texts that have been recovered. But, there were no texts that specifically explained how to do certain activities, which led me to ask the question why?

Why didn’t the Kemetic people write any texts on business, money, health, diet, marriage, childrearing, etc.? Why didn’t the Kemetic people write a text on how to live? Answer: They did not need to because they had developed a culture that addressed these issues automatically.

Many of us who were raised by devout Christian parents know the saying, “Put God first and family second.”  It appears that the Kemetic people practiced this same philosophy but took it to another level. God in the Kemetic mindset was not the Supreme Being but the Divine Spark or the Higher Self, whom they called Osar (Osiris). When the Kemetic people put Osar first, they meant consider the highest aspect of every human being or their greatest potential.

What this means is that the Kemetic people did not look at all of the wrong that an individual had done, but what was it that this individual was capable of. Imagine that. Imagine marrying a man or woman based upon the potential to do great things together instead of based upon the idea that your spouse has a good job, is good with your family and friends, etc.

Imagine applying for a job and the employer focuses on your potential to enrich the company instead of your skill set and experience.

Imagine an ill person being told that they are a god or goddess and that the illness is just a test of their will, instead of the grave news that most doctors give their patient by focusing on the illness and not on healing.

Basically, where I am going with this is that the Kemetic people did not spend a lot of time or energy devoted to these things because to them they seemed trivial. And, they are trivial when you look at these activities from a god and goddess’ perspective.

Please note that I am not saying that they are not important. This needs to be clarified because a lot of people who claim to be spiritual categorize things as either being spiritual or secular. Consequently, most people in the conscious, spiritual, occult and metaphysical community are flat broke to the point that many of our leaders have to receive charity for their body to be buried. That’s not cool and it shows that there is a serious imbalance in these individual’s life regarding the spiritual and material world. So I am not saying that at all.

What I am saying is that this is not our end game. Chasing money, getting a good home, a great job, the diet, chasing after a relationship, etc. are not the end game.  We did not incarnate to this dust ball just to do these things. Remember, we are gods and goddesses who have returned for a purpose, which means it is all controlled by the Divine.

I was posed this question so I will ask you it as well.  Do you think a god or goddess is worried about getting money? Do you think that a god or goddess worries about his or her health? I mean imagine Oset (Isis) coming down in the flesh, do you think that she is worried about getting some money? Surely, she understood that money was important but do you think she was worried about it?

Oset and Hru

I was shown that she was not because her ultimate concern was birthing a hero and heir to challenge Set. That was her end goal meaning she understood that everything that she was experiencing was preparing her to birth Hru (Horus).

In other words, we have to remember that the Divine is omnipresent, all-knowing and omnipotent, which means everything that we are going to do has already been written. We are simply going through the motions or the steps. Why? Because someone has to do it and it was you and me who chose to incarnate here and do it.  It requires faith and that’s why we are here.

The Kemetic sages tried to show that it was all about faith in the Story of Osar by indicating that every time Oset experienced something a blessing appeared out of nowhere from Ra or some other divinity.  Remember, she started looking for the body of Osar and Npu appeared to help.  She started looking for the chest containing the body of Osar and she gets a dream to go to Byblos.  Oset received all sorts of help because she had faith in Osar (her Higher Self).

I know a lot of people don’t like to hear anyone talk about faith because Christianity has made faith into a dirty word by teaching us to have blind faith but, when you get deep into our ancestral way of living.  You learn that faith is pivotal to our success and wellbeing.  You also learn that we do not need to have blind faith because we have aakhu (ancestors and spirit guides) who work using the laws of synchronicity. In other words, we receive omens, dreams, visions, premonitions, etc. and this is the main reason we work with these entities.

The Divine already knows what we are thinking and what we want to do to accomplish our goals.  It has already been written.  We need to keep in mind that coincidences do not exist. Everything is part of the Divine Plan, so we need to trust and have faith that everything works out on our behalf.  We are simply going through the motions to birth our Will (Hru).

So, how do we stop sweating the small stuff?

Well, whatever you consider to be small stuff.  I just want you to know that Oset reminds me that all mothers go through this the day after they learn that they are pregnant.

As soon as mothers discover they are expecting, they began making plans. They change their diets consume foods that will nourish their baby. They start choosing names and toying around with color schemes. They imagine how the baby is going to look and how their life is going to change when the baby arrives. In other words Family, they have faith during those long nine months.  They do not sweat the little stuff because the end game is for the healthy delivery of a child.

We need to follow suit and focus on the big instead of on the small.  We need to stop worrying about the details of how we are going to get to the end goal and just focus on the winning the race. We should all place firmly in our mind the end goal and then let our Osar (Osiris/Higher Self) guides us to it.  For instance, when I put out an order to be protected. I do not sit and dwell on how I am going to be protected. I simply say, “Thank you for protecting me” and go about my business.  I do the same thing for healing, success, etc. because it is not my job to know the details of how it work. That’s what the Spirits are here for. My job is to go through the motions of being an instrument for the Divine Plan because the Divine works through us all.

The Divine needs us as much as we need the Divine so that we can pinpoint that divine potential to achieve a goal. So, I hate to sound cliche-ish but stay encouraged and don’t lose sight of the end game.  Don’t sweat the little stuff because if you do you will never understand how the pyramids were built.

Is the Rapture Real?

16 10 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

So you have read and studied a whole lot of metaphysical books. You have learned that most of the concepts from the Christian bible were copied from earlier cultures – in particular the Kemetic (Ancient Africans of Egypt).  You have experimented with meditation and you have experienced the altered state known as trance, but still after all of you have done. Stowed away in a small crook within your mind is the idea that there still may be a rapture or a second coming where God will call up the righteous.

So, let’s deal with it.

The book of revelations is the most profound and scariest book in the bible, because no matter what people say about it being real or not. It was the book that most hellfire and brimstone preachers used to drive people (especially wayward youth) into the church. Consequently, when most of us embrace Kemetic spirituality, we can read, study, etc. but this Christian concept makes some of us keep our foot grounded in Christianity just in case we might be wrong and the rapture occurs.

I know because I used to do the same thing and even remember some people who were supposed to be spiritual that got caught up in the hype.  In fact, when I was growing up it was predicted that the rapture was going to take place in, you guessed it, 1999. What made this year even more significant was that one of my favorite artist, Prince, wrote a hit song about it. I remember so many people at my parents’ church were disgusted about this song because the lyrics simply stated that they were going to party until the end of the world. This negative attention of course, made more people purchase the album.  I remembered when the date neared and got closer to the year of 1999, people began talking about all of these different prophecies and other predictions. Those of you who lived through it will remember that they were talking about how the clocks were not going to work because they were not setup correctly.  So, when the clocks struck 1999, the power grids and other public services were going to cut off.  You remember?

Then, when January 1, 1999 came. People gasped, took a breath and realized that the end was not going to occur that day, but instead. It was going to take place in 2012.

Basically, I share this because the end has always been predicted to occur. The reason most people believe that a rapture is going to take place is because Christianity has been pushed from an emergency, crisis and fear perspective, instead of from a loving perspective. This is why most zealous Christians try to encourage people to attend their church in case some horrifying event occur. As a result of most Christians focusing solely on the horrifying events, they gravitate towards any apocalyptic signs and claim that it is connected with the rapture, which is really a lie.  Basically, these people have told themselves a lie for so long and so loud, that they only hear others like them and they actually believe it.

The facts are that the term “rapture” does not even appear in the bible.  While Paul speaks of a “Second Coming” he does not claim or even imply that the righteous will simply disappear when all hell break lose because it would indicate that God or Jesus is abandoning the very world that he came to save.

Unfortunately because so many Christians are crisis driven they miss the truth about the rapture.

If people would stop for minute and look at the concept from a metaphorical perspective, they would see that the Second Coming is simply about Jesus returning and bringing peace, justice and prosperity to the oppressed. Who was the first to declare this? You guessed it, Osar (Osiris).

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

This means that the Book of Revelations is really a book about faith.  What Paul was implying was that when all hell breaks lose that is when you are supposed to have your greatest faith in your Higher Self or Osar.  This means you are not supposed to give up (sorry Left Behind fans) but Fight.  Most miss it because they are not familiar with the original Kemetic texts which indicates that the First Coming refers to our Osar being present when we took our first breath after birth.  The Second Coming refers to our Osar returning back to our life because we as Hru FOUGHT (willed) for Osar to take an active role in our life. Remember, the Higher Self will not intercede or interfere in our life unless called upon to do so, which is the reason the Divine will not stop people from ingesting poison.

Understand. Yes! We are living in the last days, but we – the Sons & Daughters of HRU – have always been living in the last days because this physical realm is governed by Set. Set, the youngest brother of Osar is selfish, egotistical, heinous and war driven, which means there is no way we will ever get peace, true success, prosperity, financial wealth, etc. or our inheritance from him because these are all ethereal.

The only way we can save humanity is by willingly embracing Osar.

Are You Cursed?

15 10 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know there are a lot of people running around the world thinking that they are cursed.  The truth of the matter is that most people who claim to be cursed are not cursed. They are simply crossed.

Related image

Crossed is when an individual is having difficulty in life due to the wrong beliefs, thoughts, ideas and actions. For instance, when you hear an individual say that they cannot do something based upon their beliefs even when it is vital to their wellbeing. This individual is usually crossed, which can be caused by another or by oneself in which case it is called self-crossed.

Cursed or hexed when someone has deliberately placed obstacles in your path to prevent you from succeeding. Usually, most curses require a lot of time and energy. In fact, so much time and energy is wasted doing a curse that a lot of blessings are loss during the process, which is the reason most people who know how to cast a curse do not really employ it unless it is the last resort. In fact, there are not that many people in the world who can cast a successful curse because they do not have all the resources necessary to make it happen. Again, it requires a lot of time and energy, which most people simply do not have.

Now, the reason most people think they are cursed and not crossed is because they do not understand how their mind works. Most people do not understand that their subconscious is impressionable and unquestioning. Therefore, when a person of authority says “You have been cursed.” The idea or suggestion of being cursed wanders around in the so-called victim’s subconscious mind until eventually.  It enters into the victim’s awareness and convinces them they are cursed or that something is wrong in their life due to the deliberate efforts of another.

But, as I said, it was not a curse. It was a suggestion that has crossed the individual. People can become crossed in a number of ways. Most of us are familiar with the crossed conditions that were placed by our parents, teachers, ministers friends and others within are community but we are not familiar with the other crosses that are laid.

For instance, one of the most common ways for a person to be crossed is verbally. Most of us are familiar with negative and offensive talk from others but what slips under our radar is the negative self-talk we tell ourselves. When you find yourself saying, “I can’t do it” or doubting yourself, these are all signs of you crossing yourself. Below is a simple remedy on how to overcome simple crossed conditions.

Another common way a person can be crossed is through watching television. I will not spend a lot of time on this because most of us are aware of it but, anyone who has ever healed their body knows that in order to obtain perfect healing.  They must turn off the television, ignore medical advertisements, and focus solely on healing and not on illness. You have to actually become obsessed with healing and totally ignore anything that is contrary to it because this is how you protect your spirit.

An often ignored way of how people are crossed is through reading literature. To show you how powerful suggestion works, for the longest time the Hamitic curse was pretty prevalent within the African American community. This alleged curse was used by racist southern whites to justify slavery and the ill treatment of African descendants.  Today, a lot of misinformed preachers still use this silly myth to explain why African descendants are discriminated against and must experience racism.

Supposedly the curse goes that Noah had become drunk and his son Ham laughed at his drunkenness. In a fit of rage, Noah cursed Ham for mocking him.

I have learned that there are several ways to remove a crossed condition.  One of the easiest ways to remove a crossed condition that was created through wrong beliefs is by gathering new information and using it to replace the old beliefs. For instance, according to the biblical story, Noah cursed Ham’s son Canaan, not Ham himself. Thus, only one of Ham’s sons were cursed, not all four of them.

Who were the other sons of Ham? They were Cush, Mizraim and Put or more specifically Kush (the Ancient Nubia), Mizraim (the Kemetians/Ancient Egyptians) and Punt (Ancient Eritrea, Ancient Somalia, Ancient Djibouti and Ancient Ethiopia).

This means that unless you consider yourself to be a follower of the Canaan way of life, the curse wouldn’t have affected you. The other thing which those who use the bible for conjure are aware of is that unless God authorizes a curse it is impotent, meaning Noah had no authority or power to curse anyone.

Once you gather up the information, to destroy the crossed condition simply say with your hand over your chest, “That BS!” By making a gesture while speaking a proclamation, you shock your subconscious and force it remember the new information.

Since we cannot monitor peoples’ words and we cannot always stop them from speaking.  You can use this same proclamation and gesture when someone issues a negative suggestion. For instance, someone says “You would look better with…” Tell your spirit, “That BS!”

The reason for telling your Spirit that it is BS is because as you can imagine.  We all are crossed to some extent and most of these crossed conditionings makes us doubt our True Spirit or True Self.

This is where most of us get hung up on when it comes to doing anything spiritually. We fail to trust our own intuition.  We end up asking ourselves are we doing something right and so on, which further crosses ourselves.  When we get this crossed up, we end up trying to doing things based upon other’s opinions and this is how we sell our soul.

What we have to remember is that what is right, is what our Higher Self makes right because it is the only thing that is real. The physical realm is an allusion, which is the reason it is symbolized as a red desert full of mirages controlled by Set.  This means it is silly to look for validation by others especially when their opinion is not real.  The only reason most so-called curses and crossed conditions exist is because whatever we accept, agree and believe, our makes it manifest.

The time has come for us to start accepting, agreeing and believing in our Higher Self or Osar, which is the ultimate way to overcome any crossed conditioning.

F*** Karma! (What People Don’t Tell You About Karma)

13 10 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

OMG! I keep running into people who are ruled by this warped concept of karma.  I mean, I get it and I understand why so many people are stuck on it because we live in a western society that teaches us to focus on the superficial and the physical. In other words, we are taught to focus solely on everything that we see (and can assess with our five physical senses). Consequently, since most of the western religious institutions in the west only focus on what is “physically real” it creates a void in our spiritual education, which forces us to ask the question when things go wrong, s*** hits the fan and everything starts deviating from our plan:

“Why is this happening to me?”

“What did I do wrong?”

“What did I do to deserve this?”

That is when someone comes up and says, “It’s your karma.” Then, they explain it as such, “You are being punished for something you did in your past life.”

That’s BULLS***!  And, what’s worst is that they try to tie this BS karma concept to the Kemetic Maa.

Like I said, I get it! I used to err the same way until Spirit posed a few questions to me:

  1. Was it karma that brought about the genocide of many Amerindians (Native Americans) nations at the hands of the Europeans?
  2. Was it karma for the Africans to be bought, enslaved and forced to relinquish their cultural way of life by Arabs and Europeans?
  3. Is it karma for an antelope to die at the jaws of a lion, a sheep to a wolf, a chicken to a fox, a fly to a spider, etc.?

The idea that something wrong was done in the past, so to right the wrong suffering must exist in the present falls apart because if you know anything about history. Native Americans are not a homogenous group of people. I have not come across anything that states that one or several of their nations devastated and waged a genocidal war on another group of people or species.

Even, though we know that Africans (as well as other indigenous people) practiced a form of slavery, there are no records or stories that slavery was practiced  with such cruelty, brutality and so sadistically as it was practiced by Arabs and Europeans.   In fact, in the few African nations that practiced slavery, it was supposed to right the wrong that these individual committed, which is why after the enslaved individual served their life of servitude.  They were allowed to leave and/or rejoin the society. This was the case for both Native Americans and Africans.

My point is where was karma for these people who were done a great injustice and how come karma is not righting the wrong done to them by others?

Family. We have to understand that the whole idea that something bad happening to you is karma or the Universe punishing us for past life crimes is STUPID because it would mean that we are all locked in a vicious cycle of return. Meaning for instance, someone wronged me, so in the next life I am going to get them back, but in the next life. They are going to get me….but hold up! I am going to get them back in the next life and have the last laugh, or will I? Where is the evolution and growth in that? Answer: There is none.

I always wondered if karma would have existed if the Amerindians and Africans never heard of it?  I mean, before our ancestors met the Europeans and Arabs, I wonder did karma or the Christian concept “you reap what you sow (which functions along the same lines)” exist? Think about it, many of our Amerindian and African ancestors followed loosely an “eye for an eye” principle, which is the reason magick can be used to protect but also to retaliate against those who have wronged them. In fact, in most indigenous spiritual systems around the world, this is how balance is maintained because if an individual knows that if they wrong another, the victim is justified to retaliate (so long as the punishment fits the crime). It deters the offender or perpetrator from committing an injustice.

Where am I going with this? I propose that karma (and the whole “you reap what you sow”) is a cancerous thought seed that was deliberately designed for social control.  In other words, to put it bluntly…people don’t get what they deserve, they get what they attract. The atrocities that happened to our ancestors (the Amerindians and Africans) was not punishment. It was the result of them being taught by the conquerors that they were wrong for their way of life and wronged others.  Consequently, they thought they deserved to be punished by the Christian deity God or the Muslim deity Allah.

On the flip side, it is this same thought seed that allows people to continue to go through the world harming others and never feeling bad, never getting caught or righting the wrong for the crimes they have committed.

I am a firm believer that no one gets what they deserve, we get what we attract.

So what is karma? Karma means Cause and Effect but it is about what you attract to yourself. For instance, if you embrace the thought that you are healthy for a long time by saying something like “Thank you for perfect health.” This is the Cause and it will have the Effect that you will be healthy no matter what is going on. You will become conscientious about the food that you eat. You will become conscientious about your health and wellbeing. You will even be conscientious about the company you keep because it all corresponds to your original Cause and will manifest the appropriate Effect.  You made your own karma or your own Truth a physical reality. Your truth will continue to exist so long as you do not accept someone else’s truth.  As soon as you accept someone else’s truth (e.g. you have to adopt this or that dietary lifestyle or else, if you don’t get a flu shot (blank) will happen, etc. Things spiral out of our control because you have no confidence in your own truth.

Sidebar: Think about it. In honor of Christopher Columbus day (October 8), how could someone from an impoverish country go to a prosperous people and take their land?   Those who understood history and how psychology works knows that the Europeans created a loss of faith. Since our subconscious is both illogical and unquestioning, which means it will accept anything as truth especially when presented by someone who is in a position of authority. When the missionaries presented their truth and professed that the European culture was more advanced because they had clothes, weapons and ships, and that the Africans and Indian culture was primitive.  It resulted in the Africans and Indians losing faith in their ancestral ways and accepting the western truth hook, line and sinker, which led to their ultimate demise.    The only reason everyone did not fall for this allusion and most of us are waking up out of this allusion is because western religions have repressed our cultural expressions and practices by calling them evil such as, the veneration of ancestors.

How Did We Go Wrong? 

The reason most of us go wrong after accepting our ancestral ways because we were taught that God (or his helper Peter) has a book and is marking down every offense we made.

This concept was originally misunderstood from the Kemetic Judgement scene thousands of years ago, but since it was never corrected many people attracted to Kemetic spiritually today have superimposed their Christian understanding of the concept on to their interpretation of Kemetic philosophy.

But, we have to remember that the Creator is the creator of all things both the good and the bad because these are concepts (good/bad) based upon relative perspectives. For instance, you see an antelope being chased by a lioness. Well, that’s bad for the antelope if it dies because it could be a mother but it is good for the lioness who has to feed her cubs.   In other words, the Creator does not play favorites and good and bad does not exist in the Divine’s mind. They are both two different sides of the same coin, so the Creator is not punishing and rewarding us for anything because technically speaking. We cannot offend our Creator.

Copyright: Sony film Men In Black

To understand what I mean by this, remember in the first Men In Black where the universe was the size of a marble and at the end of the film there was this being that had a collection of marble (universes) that it was playing with.  This is how we look to the Creator.  If you really believe that our Creator is omnipotent, all-knowing and omnipresent, this means that to the Creator we are nothing more than children in a sandbox.

So, we cannot offend the Creator.  Case and point, the other day I heard a spoiled child who was put on punishment say they hate their parent. Do you know how many children have said they hate their parents and wished something happened to them because they could not get their way? Yes, it is endless, but do you really believe that the Creator is sitting back writing down these offenses so that we get punished for doing something because we don’t know any better? I highly doubt it because if so the Creator would not be as omnipotent and all-knowing as we claim it to be, but more like a cruel and tyrannical deity such as the god in Genesis, who punished his children (Adam and Eve) knowing good and damn well they are going to eat the fruit because they have no knowledge of self.  We have to understand that just like the Creator allows our parents to teach us the consequences of our actions. And, that it is through our parents we understand what unconditional love or Divine Love is all about. The Creator teaches us about Divine Love as well.

This means that if something bad happens to you, it is not a punishment. It is the results of something you did that brought you to this point. You simply made an unwise decision and here you are. You spent all your money on music, clothes and hair products, so guess what? Here you go struggling to make ends meet to eat and pay your bills to live.  I hear you. You say but, “I was born in a very bad time in a rough neighborhood.” Again, it is not punishment and it is not the result of some crap you did in a past life. You chose to be born into that situation in order for you to master a particular lesson (and usually it is to help others).

It is our Cause that generates or better said manifests our Effects, which the ancient Kemetic sages called Maa (Truth, Balance, Righteousness).

Djahuti (Thoth) is not writing down our offenses so we can be punished in this life or the next life. Djahuti, the Lord of science, wisdom, astronomy, mathematics, geometry, medicine, and writing is “Intuiting” where do we go next in our journey based upon the decisions that we have made. For this reason, Djahuti is sometimes called the husband of Maat indicating that the two concepts are intimately connected.

He is making a Judgment, hence the reason Djahuti is often shown as a guide.

We have to stop thinking of ourselves as being little, helpless human beings that are thrown around by the sea of fate and remember we are gods and goddesses that have returned. We created ourselves from our father’s seed and brought ourselves into being in our mother’s womb. We chose to be here. Let me say it again, We chose to be here. You just forgot that you made the decision but we chose every experience that we are having.  We are here so that we can master something and accomplish specific goals.  We just forgot, which is why we must relearn about Maa.

True karma or Maa is simply about giving us the opportunity to make adjustments in our decision so that we can change what we are experiencing. There is no cosmic deity punishing you for what you have done out of ignorance or deliberately.  There is not going to be any cosmic deity that is going to punish those who offend and vice versa, so stop sitting around waiting for universal retribution to occur.  You have the right to defend yourself because true karma or Maa is about giving one an opportunity to change and grow. So remember, people don’t get what they deserve, they get what they attract.

Hetepu.

P.S. BTW. The reason many indigenous cultures practiced a sort of eye for an eye justice is because they understood that it was their actions and behaviors that offended one another, not the Creator. In other words, human beings, plants, animals, and even spirits can be offended but not the Divine who is beyond this petty thinking. So retributive justice was allowed to ensure that offenses were not corrected, which became taboos and later cultural practices and superstitions. For instance, you do not spit in the garbage can because it offends the spits who gather there. You do not whistle in the house because it confuses the spirits and offends them thinking you are calling them.  You don’t criticize people because you are offending their ancestors who made the life of that individual, and so on.





Why they Attack Kemetic Shamans/Spiritualists?

3 09 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, I still run into people who confuse the Kemetic religion with Kemetic spirituality and do not understand that the two are drastically different. Consequently, some of these individuals staunchly criticize Kemetic spirituality and claim that it is a fad, when in fact they were not practicing Kemetic spirituality at all. So, before explaining the difference between the two, let’s understand the difference between religion and spirituality.

The Difference between Religion and Spirituality

Religion is basically a set of beliefs that over time became norms, rules, tradition and superstition. To the point that you hear people saying don’t do this or you will be punished or do this and you will be rewarded.

Colosseum & Mega Churches

Colosseum & Mega Churches

Spirituality is different from religion in the sense that it is a personal understanding about Divine. Spirituality usually involves understanding how one’s mind works and how to reach one’s greatest potential, so it employs a number of practices such as divination, meditation, spell work, altar work, prayer, rituals, etc.  Spirituality cannot be mass produced and does not follow a cookie-cutter scheme, meaning one remedy does not work for everyone. The other thing, shamans and spiritualists usually don’t follow others because they have learned to trust God within them over what someone else says. Unlike religion where you are given a definition of who God is and is not, in spirituality you discover God from within and you spend the rest of your life trying to align yourself with this indwelling intelligence.

It is important to understand that religion is a great tool for some things but ineffective for others. For instance, religion is great for instilling beliefs into children and people who have no self-control or self-discipline. Religion is great for reminding children and people who lack self-discipline of the importance of being moral.  But, religion does a horrible job at explaining an individual’s destiny because it is not personalized. This is the reason if you go to church and state that you have a problem. They give the same cookie cutter or blanket remedy, which is to pray or if you are Catholic to say Hail Mary’s, etc.  Spirituality is tailored to an individual’s needs but in order for spirituality to work.  There has to be a clear understanding of the Divine within, which means understanding one’s mind.

Kemetic Spirituality is Indigenous Thinking

That being said, the Kemetic people initially did not have a religion. A religion later evolved from their spiritual beliefs and practices because over time, people started needing rules since they started lacking self-control due to foreign influence.

Now there are a lot of Kemetic religious followers who tell people (especially newcomers) that they need to set up an altar and give offerings regularly to their ancestors, gods and goddesses, in order to get something. First, this is wrong in so many ways because it is a cookie-cutter remedy especially not knowing the individual’s needs. In general, it is recommended to start with altar work but for some people this might be confusing and it may deter their spiritual progress. Some people may be too open to the point that they are picking up all types of influences. For instance, a lot of people coming from the Pentecostal denomination are open to spirits via the Pentecostal movement of receiving the Holy Ghost, but the lack of metaphysics makes them wrongly see any spirit that speaks-in-tongues as the Holy Ghost. This is the reason these churches have not spiritually evolved.

Informing a newcomer to build an altar and give offerings without explaining why is truly a religious perspective (and western one at that).  To think that some entity outside of our being is going to give us something because we gave it a cup of beer or some fruit is crazy.

I always ask when I come across these people with this thinking, “How did you get things before you made offerings to the god/goddess and ancestors?”

Most people who take this religious path do not understand the question because they fail to see that they have superimposed their Christian or Islamic beliefs on to their understanding of the Kemetic tradition. They usually walk away saying that Kemetic spirituality does not work but they were not practicing Kemetic spirituality, they were practicing an aspect (or someone’s interpretation) of the Kemetic religion.

The Kemetic shaman and spiritualist, understanding that the Divine resides within and it all deals with the power the of their mind, knows that we each have three parts to our being: the BA (Higher Self)/Superconscious symbolized as the white Hedjet crown and personified as Osar (Osiris), sahu (lower self)/subconscious symbolized as the red Deshret crown and personified as Set, and Ab/conscious symbolized as the unified Pschent crown personified as Hru (Horus).

Most of what we have learned from birth is governed and overseen by our Set, so when we want something or try to do something new and different. It is our Set who steps in and playa hates by discouraging us from reaching our goals and potential.

So, say you are a guy who wants to get a woman to be in a relationship with you. You pray, meditate, do a spell, make a sigil and/or do a ritual one or two times to impress it on your subconscious and move the Universe so that you get a woman. Well, it is your Set who immediately gets on your left shoulder and says, “It is not going to work” based upon your past experiences and also because Set does not like change.  In fact, most people fail to accomplish their goals because as soon as they say what they want.  Their Set comes in and discourages them from doing so.  In fact, as soon as you do the meditation, spell, sigil and/or ritual and start thinking about it. Your Set is going to appear and try to discourage you by filling you with doubt. From a psychological perspective, if your goals (seeds) are not deeply impressed upon your mind.  They are on the surface and therefore superficial, which exposes it to winds of change in TASETT.  This is why Set is able to discourage so many of us from achieving our goals.

TASETT - The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Lower Self.

TASETT – The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our lower self and subconscious.

That’s why there is an alternative.

If you pray, do the meditation, make a sigil, spell and/or do a ritual repetitively, then you impress the goal on your sahu(subconscious), which in turn is forced to hand it over to your BA (Superconscious). This means, do not think about the goal or how it is going to manifest.  Just know that you are putting in the work for it to manifest and by Maa (Cause and Effect) it will.  This process is referred to as sowing seeds into KAMTA-the Black Lands (which is another term for the Superconscious) because KAMTA is symbolized as deep dark soil, hence a visual pun to the deep recesses of our mind, so that your Osar (Osiris/Higher Self) works on it.

KAMTA - The Black Lands. Literally also known as the fertile region of Upper Kamit in the southern part of the country. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Higher Self.

KAMTA – The Black Lands. Literally also known as the fertile region of Upper Kamit in the southern part of the country. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Higher Self or Superconscious.

Understand.  When you think about your goal especially after doing spiritual work.  You are in essence telling your Set to work on the goal based upon what you have learned thus far, which it cannot because your personal knowledge is limited. It is equivalent to putting on a pot of water and watching it come to a boil, which if you stare at the pot. It seems that it never will. You have to do the work and forget about it, which gives the goal to Osar and this is how your Ab or conscious mind (personified as Hru) gets into the fight and we see the epic battle between Hru and Set.  It is your Hru’s responsibility to maintain this focus and ignore the influences of Set.

Hru Osar and Set

Now to assist your Hru you can also employ the aid of Osar’s allies, which are the guardian spirits commonly called gods and goddesses. The angels, deities, gods, goddesses, spirit guides, guardian spirits, etc. are all connected to the same source or KAMTA. In other words, they are archetypes or emissaries of your Superconscious that focus on specific tasks.  For instance, Npu (Anubis) is the name of the Superconscious that opens the way, finds opportunities and lost things, etc. So, if you are a guy who wants to get a woman to be in a relationship with you and you want to employ Npu’s help. You may light a candle and give Npu an offering of chocolate hearts, knowing that it is your Superconscious that is still doing the work.  Your Set is still going to appear but now with the added imagery and symbols that are being impressed upon your subconscious, it is harder to be discouraged and easier to keep the symbols in mind, thus ignore Set’s influences and resist the temptation to lust after your results by thinking about it.

The difference between Kemetic religion and Kemetic spirituality is that the so-called deities in Kemetic Spirituality are tools to assist you in control of your subconscious and unifying it with your Superconscious and conscious intent. They are not objects to be worshipped, which is the reason most Kemetic shamans and spiritualists have a host of deities from other cultures as well.

The basis of Kemetic spirituality is forcing Set (the sahu/subconscious or lower self) to work with Osar (the BA/Superconscious or Higher Self) and Hru (the Ab/conscious or mid-self or Soul). So, if you are serious about practicing it, you really need to study how your mind works. Learning about the Kemetic history, the Kemetic  legends, etc. is helpful but it cannot help you if you do not have a reference point, which is YOU.

Kemetic Spirituality is based upon the mind and anyone who seriously practices Kemetic spirituality would never go back to organized religion because it is a different way of thinking.  Most who practice Kemetic shamanism and Kemetic spirituality do not live their lives by a set of rules because they don’t fear that by doing so they are going to be punished or rewarded, which is childish thinking.

One of the beauties of Kemetic spirituality is that it can be explained scientifically, which is important in this western society that places major emphasis on the intellect. I have nullified and completely dismantled more religious arguments against my practice by simply explaining that what I do by having an altar, doing a spell, etc. is accessing my Higher Mind; and get religious people to see that they go to church out of a tradition of guilt, fear and superstition, and not because they desire to do so.  Simply put, if something is good for you, you don’t have to beg people to try and do it like many religious people beg people to attend religious service or worship “God” from the corners and pulpits.

This is why once an individual crosses into the realm of Kemetic Spirituality, there is no way they can unlearn what they know about the mind after they have learned it. In other words, there is no way they can return back to religious thinking and this is what traditional African thinking is about.  Now you see that the reason so many people in the west are against indigenous spirituality is because, we don’t make good slaves.

Aretha’s Funeral Decoded

1 09 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know it has come to my attention that a lot of people have not discussed with their loved ones why they don’t go to church because: 1) they are either afraid to do so, or.  2) They don’t know how to explain it.  This dawned on me as I was flipping back and forth watching the service for Aretha Franklin and then heard the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta.

Before beginning, let me first acknowledge the obvious rituals that were performed for public viewing.  The Ariana Grande that people keep talking about was just there for eye-candy. She was basically there to make sure that her generation (following) tuned in to hear Williams’ sermon. The whole she is wearing a mini-skirt is a ploy. These entertainers have professionals around them everyday who inform them on what is appropriate/inappropriate.  She purposely wore the dress to disrespect the black church in order to get people to think about religious tradition.

Now, the public viewing was for five days and it was broadcasted in some areas for three days. Three as most of you know is the sacred number of the messenger and psychopomp spirits Npu (Anubis), Ellegua, Mercury and Hermes. Five is the sacred number of the spirit that governs many singers Nebhet, Oshun, Venus and Aphrodite.  According to numerology 5+3=8, which relates to fate.

From an occult perspective, the reason there was a star-studded funeral service is because the powers that be were trying to tap into the remaining essence of Ms. Franklin’s spirit (imo). As I watched bits and pieces of the funeral service conducted at my old church, I was reminded (for those who do not know about Aretha Franklin) that she is the last of great divas.  Aretha, unlike the other divas of her time (e.g. Patti Labelle, Gladys Knight, etc.) was a preacher kid of a great Baptist preacher. She started singing in the church when she a little and her following began at an early age because of what people call in the church “the anointing.”

What is the anointing? The “anointing” is a real basic term that is used mostly in Protestant Christendom to explain an extraordinary talent. In the black church/community the term is used to signify that an individual is working with a higher spirit (commonly attributed to Jesus) to heal the sick, to preach, to minster to downtrodden, and it is extended to include intelligence as well as musical talents, which mainstream America calls prodigies or genuises.

Unfortunately, because most black churches do not delve into traditional African thought, esoteric studies and metaphysics (out of conditional religious fear and social stigma), they simply call these gifts anointing. Everyone according to African American thought has an anointing, which is also sometimes synonymous with one’s Calling. Most people have to find their anointing/calling but some of us return to this earthly plane with it.  This is because the anointing is the essence of a god, goddess or ancestral spirit. Aretha’s anointing comes from a soul of a Fon devotee of Gbadu, who is the goddess of fate, hence the number 8. In Greek mythology she is the goddess of Tyche and in Roman mythology she is the goddess Fortuna, who was commonly portrayed in a domestic context, which linked her to Oset (Aset, Isis). Now if you review some of Aretha’s iconic songs such as Bridge Over Troubled Waters, A Change is Going to Come, Ain’t No Way, Daydreaming, and Natural Woman, while keeping in mind that a spirit of fate and fortune was anointing her to see women-in particular black women-in another light other than domestic servants.

Aretha was anointed and you can hear it in her voice. All her songs moved peoples’ soul. Unlike the great soul singer Sam Cooke, Aretha got (official) permission to cross over from singing spiritual music to secular music because her music reflected our experience in and outside of church – particularly women’s perspective.  Just think about her songs “Do right woman, do right man” and the classic “Respect,” which raised the consciousness of both men and women.   The thing is, there are a number of songs that she has made and collaborated on which talk about our experience.

But, Aretha’s anointing left her sometime around the time when she did the song “Think” for the Blues Brother’s film.  If you compare her early music to the 80’s song “Freeway of Love” you will see that the latter is commercial crap. It only really became a hit because it was a crossover song to pop culture and like most crossover songs, it has nothing to do with empowerment but focuses on the superficialities of love.  So, the anointing (the spirit of Gbadu) left Aretha a long time ago and what we were really left with was a shadow or copy of the original.

Everyone in Detroit knows that like most people whose anointing leaves, Aretha started doing some weird and outlandish things that only accentuated her ego.  She didn’t go all out but her separate occasions I witnessed her showboating.  In one instance, I remember the MC of an event announced that Aretha was not going to sing because she was under the weather.  So an amateur singer sung in her place and performed so well, that Aretha mysteriously was healed and chose to sing just to put the amateur singer in her place. Lets not forget that before Aretha passed she sang the national anthem for 4 minutes and 35 seconds.  Yeah. One word.

Ego.

The Ego is usually the first sign that you know the anointing has left. It is similar to when Michael Jackson started acting out and doing outlandish things. As many have noticed who study mythology, Jackson’s anointing was owned by the god Pan more specifically the avatar of Pan commonly known as Peter Pan, the childish spirit of the wild that dies once he leaves Neverland. In fact, there are many stars who have their anointing leave. Some manage to keep their anointing a little longer than others, but most eventually crack under the social pressure, which is what we call selling out.

Anyway, because most of our people don’t understand our power, the so-called “powers” that be used the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr., as a last attempt to encourage people to return to church based upon her legacy.  It was also an attempt to encourage people to return to the mosque, which is why they continued to show Min. Farrakhan even though they did not allow him speak. I am not saying Farrakhan was a willing participant of the theatrics. I am just noting that they used his image for their purpose. Question: When was the last time you ever saw Min. Farrakhan and Bill Clinton at the same function? Answer: Never.  This is a sign it is Theatrics.

Once, I saw this, it all made sense why Williams’ eulogy sounded more like a scolding for not attending church instead of being focused on Aretha’s accomplishments.  Williams’ eulogy was also a litmus test to see how many people are out of the church and feeling Williams’ message.  What they discovered was that the eulogy fell on deaf ears because they are dealing with another generation. So understand, that the powers-that-be were using the legacy of Aretha Franklin as another means of social control. I guarantee you that the same sermon will not be said when any of the other divas make transition.

Now, why don’t we go to church (kingdom hall, temple or mosque)?

It is because all of these religions place emphasis on empowering an entity that exists outside of our self. Most people cannot put a finger on it because they do not understand the nature of the mind.  But we have spent a lot of time worshipping a deity (called Jesus, God, Jehovah, Allah, etc.), meanwhile our lives and our community have continued to drastically decay.  Most people today attend religious service out of habit and social conditioning because it is programmed in their mind that it is the thing to do, or they will be punished (go to hell, cursed, etc.). Only a few people (that’s us) get it and realize that most people are following a religious superstition.

We are the generation that understands that if I want to improve my finances. I have to learn money management because Jesus ain’t going to do it for me. If I want to improve my relationships, I may have to learn how to talk to my woman/man like I want to be talked to, because Jesus ain’t going to do it for me.

In other words, we are the generation that is beginning to realize and break the religious/social conditioning, of believing that some outside force is going to magically make our lives better. If we want something different, we have to empower ourselves and this is the reason we do not attend church.

We know that a 15-minute meditation session where we focus on aligning our conscious with our higher self, is more powerful and effective than a five or six hour Sunday service that focuses solely on entertaining our Ego with singing, dancing and a pep rally sermon.

Remember, that in Kemetic thinking the Ego is personified as Set, the Lord of Chaos, Confusion and Calamity. Any thing that accentuates our Ego is only going to cause problems.

If you noticed anything else funny/weird about this funeral, please share.

Beware of Kemetic Bulls***!

26 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know what Family? Ever since the showing of The Hidden Color (HC) docufilm series there has been a slight elevation of consciousness but a massive elevation of BS.  Understand. When I say a slight elevation of consciousness it is because those of us who have been conscious for some time, to the point that we never even called ourselves “conscious,” that after watching HC.  We all said the same thing, “That’s good. That’s not totally correct but okay, it is a starting point.” Everyone I know said the same thing because there is a lot of good information presented in these series, but it is just that. Information. And, the interesting thing is that it barely scratches the surface of how deep our ancestors are.  Think about it. If our ancestors walking alongside the Nile almost 3000+ years ago, do you really think you could sum it up in one or two videos? If you think so, you really do not know how deep we really are. I will explain here shortly.

But for those who are new to this; those who think it is cool to have a Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) name or some other suffix behind it; those who think it is cool to rock a natural hairstyle wear a dashiki, have an Egyptian tattoo and some Egyptian jewelry, etc. took this in another direction.  These clowns watched the film, memorized everything that was said, created a blog or Youtube site, and professed to be conscious or “woke.” Now, they sit around creating outlandish titles (and they get paid for this) to get hits and likes because they wear an Egyptian name and people think they are talking about Kemetic spirituality but they have nothing to do with Kemetic spirituality.

Family, there are two types of Kemetic Bulls***ers.  The first group and the largest group are these “conscious” people who have never read a book about Kemetic spirituality.  The first sign that they are spurting Kemetic Bulls*** is that they are attacking others who do not share their views. If these individuals were truly into Kemetic spirituality they would know that we are all at different levels of spiritual growth and that there is not one spiritual path. Therefore, these individuals have simply taken their Christian (Baptist, COGIC, Apostolic, Jehovah Witness, etc.) and Muslim (Sunni, Shiite, etc.) ideologies and imposed it on consciousness.  In other words, they are the still christians or muslims arguing that Jesus (or Mohammed) said do this but now they are wearing some African garb, the RBG colors and rocking a natural wig.    

The second Kemetic Bulls***ers are these so-called “conscious” people who have read book but they have not sat long enough to obtain any wisdom. These people think that reciting a bunch of historical facts and other details about Kemet is Kemetic spirituality.  The first sign that these people are Kemetic Bulls***ers is that they always have a bookcase full of books to make it appear that they are intelligent. All they are doing is boosting their ego and the ego remember is symbolized by Set (the Lord of Chaos and Confusion).  This is the reason there is so much controversy and dissension associated with these individuals.

Let me explain that these individuals are actually very “learned.” Meaning they have mimicked the information perfectly like Djahuit’s (Thoth) baboon.  Understand. Information is the pathway to wisdom but it is not wisdom. Wisdom comes from actually applying information over a period of time. The information has marinated in your spirit to the point that you know what works for you.

Proof that they are “learned” and have no wisdom is that they will give you the basic information about a Kemetic divinity. For instance, if you said Anubis, they will tell you “He is the god of death, the first god of the underworld, a jackal headed god, the god of embalming,” which is all information you get from wikipedia. People who have a working personal experience with Anubis such as myself may say, “Anubis or Npu. I just talked to this spirit and told him to help me find something. Afterwards we shared a cigar and some rum together.” Then, they will laugh because they understand that Anubis is an archetype that exists within them and the Universe. Understand the difference?

Npu – Watching and Weighing the Soul of the Dead

Family. There is no such thing as good or evil, which means there is a lesson you can learn from everything. One of the things I learned about the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was that the best way to deter a movement is by diluting it with propaganda.

Get it right. I am not pointing fingers and saying who is and who is not an agent of or Kemetic Bulls***ers. I am simply saying watch out for the Kemetic BS! That is anyone and anything promising to deliver something just because it has a Kemetic name or word attached to it.

I fell for this a couple of times. I am lying. I fell for this a few times. I remember I purchased some products (at different times) by well-known individuals within the “conscious” community because it had the word “Kemetic” on it, an ankh on it or some other icon tying it to Kemet.  I remember I was like Po from Kung Fu Panda, eagerly waiting to receive the secret Dragon Scroll. Because, I had psyched myself up to think that when this book, video, etc. arrived in the mail, it was going to totally change my life.

Once I received it, I was so disappointed because it was not what I had imagined it to be. None of these things delivered what they promised, but in a way all of these products did deliver something. I was just too caught up in the western “savior mode (thinking something outside of me can save me)” to see it because the answer was always within me.

Let me tell you something about Kemetic spirituality.

Venerating the Dead

Have you ever wondered why the Kemetic people never left any detailed texts on how to raise your family, how to live healthy, the best foods or best dietary lifestyle, the best business plan, etc.? Have you ever wondered why the Kemetic people for thousands of years kept writing the same after death theme in their books and writing the same hieroglyphic texts on the walls?  Think about it. Three thousand plus years of nothing but texts about death.

TASETT – the Lower Kemet/lower self/subconscious – sahu part of our being. TASETT also represents the SAHU, KHAB, KHABIT & KA Divisions of the Spirit

It is because the Kemetic people understood that this physical world was not real and is based solely upon our subconscious or ego-self/Set.  Meaning, nothing in this physical realm will bring us true happiness, peace, prosperity, etc. It only satisfies the ego because it is short term and temporal. This is the reason money cannot give us prosperity, drugs give a temporary happiness, etc. The physical realm and everything within it is an allusion, it is TASETT – the Red Lands (desert) full of mirages (empty promises).  This is the reason the Kemetic people never invested a lot of time and energy into staying here. This is also the reason you cannot find ancient texts written by them on trying to preserve life here. Are these subjects important? To each its own, it is relative.  But the most important subject that our Nilotic ancestors did not want us to forget was that what we call the real world is an illusion.

Understand. The illusion, the maya is that this physical realm is concrete and final when in fact, it is simply a physical manifestation of our beliefs, ideas and thoughts. Yes. If you are having a miserable physical experience right now, check the beliefs, ideas and thoughts that you hold in your awareness.

That is Kemetic spirituality. Period.

The reason Kemetic writers wrote so many texts on death is because in the end, your afterlife is going to be a mere reflection of how you lived your life. Meaning the beliefs, ideas and thoughts you held in your awareness during life are going to be the ones that determine how your soul is going to exist in the next realm.

Judgement Scale

When you really understand this means every experience is propelling you to be a god or goddess. For instance, if you have anger issues, you are going to find yourself put in situations where you will easily lose your temper, until you learn how not to react to everything angrily and trust that the Divine within you will work in your favor without you become irate. This means rather you adopt a certain dietary lifestyle, dress a certain way, adorn your hair al naturelle or dyed and laid to side, has not a damn thing to do with your destiny. Are they important, sure if you want them to be but your salvation is depended on you learning how not to react to everything angrily and trust that the Divine within you will work in your favor without you become irate. Period.

Understand. If you have anger issues, then every time you find yourself in situations where you lose your temper becomes your daily judgment where you stand before Osar (Osiris), as shown above.

Again, is your diet important, your hairstyle, etc. are they important? Is it important that you learn how to make money? Again, it is all relative. For some people, you may have to adopt a certain diet to help you but it is not a requirement. For others, you may have to adorn yourself in a certain manner, but don’t get it twisted.  If you incarnated here to learn how to deal with your anger, your salvation is on you learning to deal with your anger. That is your destiny or purpose of being here.

Once you understand this, then everything is relative to your destiny or purpose of being here. You can start a business, plan a revolutionary movement, work to build up your community, etc. so long as you remember, to trust that the Divine within you will work in your favor and do not take it personal by becoming irate (if your destiny deals with overcoming anger).

OMG! This is when the real magic occurs. You are ready to blow a gasket but you remain calm trusting the Divine within you, while someone is acting a fool and trying to engage you in a fight.  Then, you are rewarded for being calm and the person slips and breaks the arm for offending you, hence the gods and goddesses (spirits) are fighting your battle. This is what Kemetic spirituality is about.

To understand your destiny, all you need to do is study the recurring problems you continue to have in your life. Know that Kemetic spirituality is not about following this person or trusting that something is going to save you. It is all about learning how to trust your Osar, hence resurrect the Osar within you who for most of your life has been a silent and whispering voice.

5 Steps to Get Through Any Spiritual Storm

19 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

In this post I am continuing to give a little insight to help those on the path because a lot of people do not talk about lows to spiritual development.  We always hear people talk about how Jesus got them through some ordeal but rarely do Kemetic people give a testimony of how they overcame an issue, which 1) gives a false impression that this path is a piece of cake, and. 2) Makes one feel who is going through an ordeal that they are weak if they are falter in any way because they are not being perfect.

So, I am here to let you know that spiritual development like any other discipline has its highs and lows. We are all here because we are trying to perfect ourselves and according to the Maa Aankh.  When we begin to experience gross losses, setbacks, lawsuits, relationship ills, problems, grave misfortunes, tragedies, unexplainable illnesses, financial woes, etc. It is an omen from the Universe that we have reached the Ra moment and that our Sun has begun to set, thus moving to the Ra Atum (Death) moment.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Although Set is the lord of chaos, confusion, calamity, storms, etc. and the ruler of TASETT (the physical realm, hence the name TA Sett), it is this particular quarter (Ra to Ra Atum) of the Maa Aankh that we see Set in his rawest form.

Courtesy of R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz who gives a different version of this passage, stating “At about noon [Ra moment], the barque of Re-Horakhty reaches the summit of a mountain where a serpent 50 cubits (26 meters) in length is found whose foremost 3 cubits are of silex. This serpent swallows in one gulp part of the stream. Seth, at the front of the boat, ‘directs his lance of fire against him, and causes him to cough up all that he had swallowed.'(_Book of the Dead_, Chapter 108, quoted in _Symbol and the Symbolic_, page 81.

But do not be discouraged. You must remember that our Creator is Perfect so there is no such thing as good versus evil. There is only planned and unplanned, which means that our Creator created Set for specific purpose and that is to be our greatest adversary. Set witnessed our birth and he created the resistance in the birth canal that we fought against to physically survive.  He created all of the opposition that exists in our life and here is just another test to prove to ourselves that we are who we say we are, a GOD/GODDESS.

Remember, you are a god/goddess and you chose to incarnate to this physical plane we call TASETT (the Red Lands). This is TASETT and it is ruled by Set meaning it is not supposed to be fair, just, equitable or equal. It is supposed to be a bad experience so that we are inspired to return home (the realm of the gods/goddesses – Amenta, which is deep within KAMTA).

Understand. You chose to be here and you chose all of your experiences that are experiencing, both the good and the bad because you came here to master your divinity, which is your ultimate objective. You may not remember making these choices because you were born to a family and grew up with friends in a community supported by a society that discourages spiritual culture.  But both Osar (Asar, Osiris, Higher Self) and Set (lower self) remember the oath you made prior to being born and they are committed to helping you fulfill your destiny.

Your Osar is committed to being a silent voice until you decide for your Osar to take a more prominent lead in your life, and your Set is committed to creating as many obstacles in your life to force you to resurrect your Osar. In other words, Set (the spiritual storms) exist to make us stronger and to help you to make through his storm, here are five suggestions that will help you:

  1. Get a journal and journalize your experience. Write down everything that is occurring. The purpose of this exercise is to help you to clear your mind.
  2. Ask yourself why is this experience occurring in your life right now?  Typically whenever something unplanned or negative occurs, we tend to point the finger at what others have done. This question is meant to hep us take responsibility of our own actions, behaviors and ultimately our life.
  3. Stick to one spiritual practice that will bring you solace.  If meditating works for you, then meditate. If prayer works for you, then just pray.  If doing one particular ritual works for you, then do that one particular ritual. Remember, there is no right or wrong because it all occurs within our mind.  Sometimes, when I am going through a storm the last thing i want to do is do any altar work so I work with my spirits mentally.
  4. Do the opposite of what you feel. When you are in the storm a lot of times your feelings will betray you because you are prone to reacting from a subconscious (sahu) level. This is the moment you should do the opposite of what you normally do. For instance, if you are in the habit of going at it alone, it may to your advantage to get with a group and vice versa.
  5. Finally, focus your attention on helping others. I know that sounds odd, but our Osar is a universal cooperative force that usually comes to the forefront whenever we are in a peaceful mind state. If you are worried about how something is going to work out, how are you going to get some money, how anything, your Osar will stay in the deep recesses of your mind because you are trying to solve the problem based upon your understanding, and not relinquishing power to infinite your Higher Self or Osar. This mental switch of relinquishing control or submitting is hard for many of us and gets easier with practice, but the simplest way for newcomers to make this switch is by focusing on helping others. For instance, volunteer to help someone free of charge. Leave some money anonymously at an aisle in a grocery store for someone. Remember, you are not trying to boost your ego, you are trying to boost your Higher Self and these are all activities that strengthen your BA (Higher Self) and weaken the influence of your sahu (lower self/ego).

Now, to get a little more real, the reason your Set is here testing you in the first place and at this exact moment is because you have some spiritual impurities that need to be burned out of your system, and this is the tempering process to do it.   The cooling part comes afterwards, so stay strong because it  is during the Ra Atum and Amun Ra moment that your spiritual guides will come to your aide. For instance, you may have some complete strangers talk to you out of the blue and give you great insight and/or gifts like money. This is where you will experience the unlimited power of KAMTA. The only way for you to know this realm is by witnessing it and this is why you are going through the storm. So, don’t fear and don’t fret, the storm never last.

Prepare yourself knowing that you will be stronger and wiser in the end.

Why We Love Amun Ra?

18 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

In a previous post I mentioned that Akhenaten was not a Kemetic hero and how although archeologists and historians hold this heretic king in high regards because he tried to convert the Kemetic people to his own-self tailored religion (Atenism).  It was because of the valiant efforts of the faithful adherents of the Amun Ra tradition, that Kemet was rescued from the jaws of death and return her once more to a state of glory.

If you don’t know about Amun Ra you would assume that the reason the Kemetic people returned to this spiritual path is because they simply like worshipping idols and living a polytheistic life versus Akhenaten’s monotheistic peace-one-god fearing – religion.  Don’t be fooled Family. All of the monotheistic “I come in peace” religions have brought nothing but demise, which is the reason the world is in the current spiritual state today. So, what was so special about the Amun Ra tradition? Why is it, thousands of years later people are still attracted to the Amun Ra path?  Why is it despite the demonization from the western academic community, western religious groups, not to mention the gross film industry that portrays the Kemetic people as non-black-Africans and ETs, people are still attracted to this ancient path.  What is it that is so great about the Amun Ra tradition?

Well, to understand this we must do two things:

First, realize that although archeologists and historians claim that the Kemetic people left no explanatory texts regarding the Amun Ra tradition, the remnant of the Amun Ra tradition have been found throughout Central and West Africa.

Second, we must realize that the Kemetic people did not worship gods and goddesses, but that these so-called deities are concepts used to describe an abstract quality that exists in the Universe and within our being. For instance, Osar (Osiris) is not a physical god of the underworld but symbolizes the Higher Self. Set is not some evil god of chaos but symbolizes our lower self – in particular our ego who is the culprit of most of the problems in our life. Failure to see these “gods/goddesses” as concepts within Nature and within our being will prevent you from growing spiritually because you are unable to see the correspondence between you and other living things. In other words, you see yourself as separate from everything, thus making you more competitive (aggressive) and less cooperative (interdependent).

This allows us to see a direct cultural link between the Kemetic people and traditional societies.  I found through my personal research a cultural connection between the Kemetic people and the Bantu-Kongo people of Central Africa. By making one-to-one correspondence between the Kemetic and ancient Bantu-Kongo philosophy.  I discovered the Maa Aankh, which indicates that we live in a dualistic world that is governed by Maa.

This means in a nutshell that what goes up must come down, for every right there is a left, for every cause, there is an effect.  This constant flux is what I refer to as the Shu (Kemetic Yang) and Tefnut (Kemetic Yin) of life and we can say that it manifests itself as stress and rest.  Therefore, contrary to western thinking, life is not black and white. Nature is not totally competitive, but it balances itself by having a cooperative aspect. This is the reason lions and other predators do not hunt 24/7.  We must understand that between white and black that there are a lot of shades of grey.  This means everything in life has levels.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Stress, for the record is not bad. Stress is nothing more than resistance and it is needed to help build strong muscles, which is necessary to lift weights and heavy objects. However, too much stress can cause a problem because without proper and adequate rest our muscles can be overextended and can never recuperate. If we understand that Rest/Stress are two-sides of the same coin.  For our purposes, the Rest side is symbolized as KAMTA and the Stress side is symbolized as TASETT. This means there are four probabilities in regards to mental states. Therefore:

  • We have excessive rest, which is symbolized by the Amun Ra mental state.
  • Average rest which is symbolized by the Khepera mental state.
  • Average stress which is symbolized by the Ra mental state, and.
  • Excessive stress, which is symbolized by the Ra Atum mental state.

Let’s see some working examples.

 

The Amun Ra Modality of Daily Living (Excessive Rest)

One day we feel as if we are on top of the world. Everything is going fine. We are meditating, doing rituals, studying, etc. on a regular basis. We got money in our pockets and the bills are paid. There are no worries.  No drama, which means we are at the Amun Ra mental state or what many call Nirvana or Namaste (Notice the serene look that appears on all ancient Amun Ra statues and icons). It should be noted that the reason this state is so blissful is because our awareness is internalized, hence the Sun is within KAMTA.

The Khepera Modality of Daily Living (Average Rest)

It would be great for us all to live in this mental state all the time, which is the reason so many meditation teachers spend lifetimes trying to master it, but we are thrown out of this state of bliss the more stress we become or the more we externalize our awareness.  Hence, our Sun is at the Khepera moment meaning we are more on the edge of KAMTA, then TASETT.

Babies are the only human beings on the planet that are naturally close to this mental state because babies have little to no concerns or worries in the world. However, infants do worry about when they are going to receive their next feeding and this is what throws them out of the Amun Ra mental state.  This is because any time we think about our basic survival needs like food, shelter, etc. Our awareness is externalized. There are only a few people in our world who are able to walk around with a smile on their face and live totally worry free knowing all of their concerns will be addressed.

Although it would be great to live a life in bliss by walking around in Amun Ra, for most of us it is just not practical. So most of us are drawn to the Khepera mental state because we are concerned about our survival, the survival of our loved ones, etc. This naturally makes us think about out our basic survival needs like food, shelter, etc.  At this mental state, most of us are able to easily retreat back to Amun Ra when things go awry. The reason most people attend church or any other religious service regularly is because the religious service is able to assist them in returning mentally to the Amun Ra mental state, which is the mindset that everything is working according to plan.  Some other activities that help us to return to the Amun Ra mental state from the Khepera moment are daily, weekly and monthly rituals; meditation and meditative exercises, which means that the reason the Kemetic people favored the Amun Ra path over Atenism is because they had tools (icons) to assist them in returning their awareness inward.

The Ra Modality of Daily Living (Average Stress) 

However, most of do not live our day-to-day life in the Khepera mental state. The society we live in forces most of us to live at the Ra mental state where we must compete and fight for everything that we want and need.  Here most of are in a competitive mind state and we fight everything.  Notice that the Ra moment is opposite of the Amun Ra moment, which means we have transitioned from the mind state of thinking our concerns will be care for to we must take of our concerns ourselves because our awareness is totally externalized. This also means that since our awareness is very externalized, it requires a lot of effort to return to our natural Amun Ra state, which is the reason many opt for the use of temporary fixes like alcohol, drugs, sex, etc.  I hope you are seeing the pattern, which is that the more externalized our awareness is the harder it is for us return to our divine state of being and the more we identify with our external environment.

The Ra Atum Modality of Daily Living (Excessive Stress) 

It should be noted that the Ra moment is a very volatile mind state because too much stress leads to Ra Atum.  So, the Ra moment signifies the start of the downwind in our life.  This is when everything (it seems) starts going awry and we have major obstacles, obstructions, problems, major setbacks, etc. occur but, this is all due to us externalizing everything.  It is important to understand that excessive stress is symbolized as Ra Atum and it signifies a drastic need for change in one’s current actions, activities and behaviors, etc. or else death.

Therefore, from a contemporary perspective we see that although King Akhenaten may not have planned for it, his Atenism religion was racing Kemet towards the Ra Atum moment or the moment of death.  This is the reason the Kemetic people returned to the Amun Ra path and Kemet was saved because it was our initial Divine mind state.

We can use the Maa Aankh in our life to see where our current actions and behaviors are leading us today and return to our initial Divine mind state as well.  For instance, if you feel as if you are on top of the world. You are feeling lucky and blessed, you are most likely around the Khepera and Amun Ra moment.  You would do well to try to maintain this mental state by balancing your awareness so that it does not become to externalized, hence having one foot in the KAMTA (spiritual realm) and TASETT (physical realm).

Maa Aankh with Utchat

However, if you are experiencing some major obstructions, (e.g. the loss of a family member, health issues, etc.) this is a sign that you may be at the Ra moment and your life has taken a turn towards Ra Atum. Remember, death does not necessarily mean the end or final act but simply indicates a grave situation due to excess and extreme externalization of our awareness where you are more in TASETT than KAMTA. You are reminded that you simply need to draw your awareness (Sun) back within.

We love Amun Ra because we love basting in the power and peace of our initial Divine consciousness.

Much Respek for Luke Cage’s Anansi (Sahr Ngaujah)

12 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Ok. I just finished watching Luke Cage Season 2, and I am not going to spoil it for those who have not seen it, but I thought it was descent.  The best character and the most profound scene was by Sahr Ngaujah who plays the character Anansi. His performance and monologue was so profound that I found it interesting that no one in the “woke” community caught it.

But, before I go into it, this season 2 has several antagonists. First, there is Mariah “Black Mariah” Dillard (Cornell’s “Cottonmouth” Stoke’s cousin) and Hernan “Shades” Alvarez returns from last season, but there is a villain named John “Bushmaster” McIver.

Bushmaster (Luke Cage 2)

Now, Bushmaster is portrayed as a crazed Jamaican who is obsessed with killing Mariah and any other Stokes that is alive. When he first encounters the protagonist Luke Cage, Bushmaster gives him a serious beatdown because he uses a Maroon fighting style known as Bangaran, which is similar to Capoeira minus the “jinga” dancing step. Sidebar: Denzel Washington and Robert Townsend did a form of bangaran in the classic film The Mighty Quinn. Anyway, you find out later that reason Bushmaster is out to kill Mariah is because the Stokes murdered his family and stole his inheritance.

Bushmaster fight Luke Cage

So, like I said, I am not going through the whole season. I am just going to say that the best, the coldest, the most relevant to our situation and the most profound scene that explains most of our situation occurs between in episode 24 “The Creator.”

In the scene, Shades and Mariah kidnaps Bushmaster’s Uncle Paul “Anansi” McIntosh. (Sidebar: Anansi is the name of the Akan Ellegua or trickster spirit who manifests himself as a spider, who became Aunt Nancy in the United States. The name Anansi is also featured in the show American Gods 2 as Mr. Nancy shown above.)

Anansi (Sahr Ngaujah) in Luke Cage 2.

Anyway, they are discussing how her grandfather “Buggy Stokes” stole Bushmaster’s father (Quincy McIver) distillery.

Mariah tells Anansi that afterwards, “The Italian gangsters took the liquor. The Irish cop’s protection but we (Stokes) kept the real-estate.”

Anansi responds saying “Yuh grandfather was a slave.”

Mariah retaliates, “Buggy Stokes was freer than you will ever be.”

Anansi, “That’s the problem with you, Yankee. Yuh nuh have the strength to fight yuh masters dem. Yuh lazy. Yuh content with the scraps. Yuh happy to sing and dance for dem.“

Mariah responds saying, “Oh, please. Every Jamaican talks that Marron bullshit.”

What, y;all didn’t get your freedom–What? 1962. And then you got enslaved by the World Bank.  All you’re known for is Marley, marijuana and murder.

Anansi tells Mariah, “Quincy McIver wanted to fight the Italians and di Irish. Him thought Buggy would’ve had him back.”

Mariah finishes saying, “Buggy could only fight for one family. And he chose the right one.”

And, it is here we see the entire psychological and social issue that most of us suffer from without even noticing. It interesting that none of the “woke” community has even spoke about it.  First, if you ever watched the first season of Luke Cage you know that Mariah has serious self-identity and self-love issues. She rose to power (spoiler alert for those who have not watched  season 1) because her cousin teased her by repeating a horrible nickname “Black Mariah,” which led to his death.  In the beginning of season 2, Mariah is persuaded to make a deal by another Black American gangster who discourages her from working with (paraphrase) “Cigar Smoking Blacks, Caribbean Blacks, Rum Drinking Blacks” (derogatory shots to Blacks in the Caribbean) and encourage her to work only with Mississippi Blacks (American Blacks).

Anansi’s statement to Mariah that, “That’s the problem with you, Yankee. Yuh nuh have the strength to fight yuh masters dem.  Yuh lazy. Yuh content with the scraps. Yuh happy to sing and dance for dem.“

She totally missed what Anansi was saying because like most people she did not know her history. The Maroon’s is a generic and derogatory term from the Spanish word cimarrón, that was corrupted in English to maroon to mean “wild, unruly and runaway slave.”

Family. The Maroons were not a single or separate race of people. They were Africans forcefully brought to the Americans and forced to be slaves, who had had enough and fled into the wild to make their own life. Many of the “Maroons” banded with the indigenous people of the land and built numerous communities all throughout the Americas and they warred with the Europeans to defend their land.  This is reflected in Bushmaster who has hazel colored eyes, was blessed by his grandmother who was an Obeah woman, etc.

Most people have only vaguely heard of the Jamaican Maroon community and think that the term Maroon only refers to escaped Africans there.  But, there were Maroons they escaped and settled with the Taino in Haiti, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. The Maroons in the United States were the infamous Seminoles in Florida, that no one wants to really talk about. Not to mention the Africans who joined forces with the indigenous in Louisiana and Mississippi.  In fact, any African American who has an affinity with the Native American spirit Black Hawk will be surprised to find that it has nothing to do with how many are portraying him. It is drawing back to this Maroon spiritual connection, which means you may have some African ancestry who were Maroons.

Maroon culture promoted in Jamaica courtesy of http://etn.travel/jamaicas-tourism-promote-maroon-festival-9112/

There were Maroon cultures in Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, and their descendants are the Garifuna.  There were Maroon cultures in Panama, Columbia, Ecuador and in Brazil, the most famous Maroon culture was called Palmares home of the legendary leader Zumbi dos Palmares, rumored to be the birthplace of the contemporary Capoeira.

There were also Maroons in Mexico where the most famous Angolan Maroon leader, Yanga Gaspar, was said to have beat the Spanish so bad that it led to a peace treaty, which eventually led to Mexico winning its independence. Yanga Gaspar is honored today in Veracruz, Mexico with a statue There were even Maroon communities in Canada.

In Jamaica the “Maroons” had two pivotal wars against the British that eventually led to the British signing a peace treaty with them. Jamaica’s independence had nothing to do with the Maroons but they tried to tie the two together to make “selling out” looking appeasing and make our indigenous culture look primitive, backwards and unimportant.

Killmonger of Black Panther

Again, it was another tip of the Marvel hat to put down indigenous African culture and African mindsets as they had done with the Killmonger character in Black Panther.

It makes you ask the question that if our indigenous mindset (culture and spirituality) is so primitive, backwards and unimportant, why don’t let us be?

It is because they know that it is not. The Maroon culture is the only culture within the Americas that has flipped the system because they know that they are the only ones who are mentally and spiritually free. Understand, Maroon culture focuses on going within. In fact, all throughout the series Anansi keeps reminding Bushmaster that true power comes from within.

The Maroons all over the Afro-Diaspora are the ones who understood that anyone you allow to give you your freedom is your slave master, and this is what Mariah missed as she was applauding her grandfather who murdered his own just to settle for scraps from the Italians and Irish mobs.

Family. I hope that this has inspired you to take a deeper look at Maroon culture so that you can understand what it really means to be mentally and spiritually free.  A lot of effort is being made so that we do not return to our original spiritual mindset. This world has nothing to offer us because our genius is within.

Don’t be fooled into thinking otherwise.

Creating Permanent Positive Change through Invocation

5 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, if you grew up in the church, a religious or Christian household, you know that the one practice that is heavily stressed is prayer. We are instructed that if we are sick, having money issues, problems with our family, needing a raise on our job, etc. We are instructed to pray because…prayer changes things.

But, what I have learned over the years is that this is not entirely true. I remember the first time I got into a bind and really tried to pray to God for some help.  Like many young Black males in the City of Detroit during the mid-1980s, I was trying to avoid the crack related violence occurring all over the city. I had attended church all of my young life but when I entered my teen years, I was no longer under the protection of my parents’ spiritual grace. So, I tried my best to pray and ask God to help me but, my request fell on deaf ears.

I remember asking more experienced people at my parents’ church how to pray and why I felt that my prayer was not being answered.  The response these people told me, led me to believe that my prayers were not being answered because I did not have faith.  Since, I did not have faith, it was like oh well, too bad, so sad, go get some faith and suffer until I did so for God to help me.

I remember I after hearing this, I walked away contemplating suicide because in my young mind.  It was reasoned that God did not want me because I was not one of the “Chosen Ones.”

Fortunately, thanks to intervention from my ancestors and spirit guides I was saved and directed to take an alternative path.  It was through this alternative path that I learned that the reason prayer does not work and for that matter affirmation, positive thinking, creative visualization, rituals and even magick a lot of times does not work is because as many church going people claim, “the lack of faith.” But, it is not because of the lack of faith in God.

It is the lack of faith in oneself and their belief in God. Now, the reason most people lack faith in them selves in regards to their belief in God is because we have been taught to fear the Divine and that to question anything in regards to the Divine is considered blasphemous. Now, that we are adults, we can put aside these superstitions and recognize that the reason we have all been drawn to understanding the nature of our being in regards to the Divine, is because deep within our being.  We understand that the secret to knowing the Divine lies in understanding our mind.

Understanding the KAMTA (Spiritual) and TASETT (Physical)  Aspect of Our Being

So, in order to have faith in our self in regards to the belief of God, we must learn to think differently about ourselves and our relationship to the Divine.  This means understanding that we are all made in the image of the Divine and that everything that exists in the Universe exists within us in an infinitely small scale. Since our Universe is composed of energy/matter, everything that has been discovered and undiscovered both energy/matter can be found within our being.  Everything that we see and do not see in the Universe can be found within our being as well.  Therefore, metaphysically we say that both the visible, physical realm (TASETT – the Red Lands) and the invisible, spiritual realm (KAMTA) can be found within our being. Psychologically speaking, the visible, habitual or TASETT part of our being corresponds to our subconscious or sahu, while the invisible, unusual or KAMTA part of our being corresponds to our Superconscious or BA.

Therefore, there is a known, familiar, habitual, subconscious part (sahu) of our being symbolized as TASETT, which is based upon our beliefs and.  An unknown, unfamiliar and inhabitual or unusual, Superconscious (BA) part of our being symbolized as KAMTA that is based upon our knowing.

Understand, the difference between belief and knowing is that beliefs are based upon observable events and things that occur in one’s environment. Beliefs are usually communicated to us by someone we see as an authority figure such as our parents, other adults, teachers, leaders, politicians, etc. Beliefs are subjective, meaning they change based upon an individual’s cognizance, maturity, intelligence and experience, which is why most people believe in God.  However, knowing is based upon an individual’s inner-sperience or insperience. Knowing does not change, meaning that when you know something such as 2+2 =4, you cannot go back and unlearn it.

TASETT – the Lower Kemet/lower self/subconscious – sahu part of our being.

It should be noted that the root of the word TASETT is Set, who is personification of our sah (subconscious ego-self) and the spirit of chaos, confusion, calamity, storms, etc.  This means that since our lives are based upon either our beliefs or knowing., most of our problems in life are due to the fact that we live our life on autopilot based upon our sahu (subconscious) beliefs and not our BA  (Superconscious) knowing. For instance, although most of us know that life is full of shades of gray, we believe that life is black and white. Although we know that we are all unique individuals with different backgrounds and experiences, we erroneously believe that we should all have the same morals, ethics, standards, etc. and if we do not, we label one another as being crazy, etc. When the truth of the matter is that when an individual does not act or behave in the appropriate manner, it is because they are living their lives based upon their erroneous beliefs and not knowing, which is symbolized as living under the sway of Set. Understand, obstacles, problems, trials, etc. are simply signs that we are in an unfamiliar situation that we have no knowledge of.  The problems become worse when we try to resolve them based upon our limited belief system within our sahu because the purpose of the sahu is not to solve problems but to help us to physically survive. Problem solving is a task assigned to our BA – the knowing part of our being, which is the reason KAMTA is ruled by Osar, the ultimate judge, spirit of knowledge, peace, wisdom, stability, prosperity and tranquility.     

KAMTA is the Kemetic term our Nilotic ancestors gave us to remind us that our greatest potential is within like the dark fertile soil of southern Kemet or the dark and mysterious starry night sky.  Therefore, new actions, behaviors, creative ideas, etc. must be cultivated from out of the deep recesses of our mind or out of KAMTA. This is the mysterious part of our being which means we are not supposed to understand it logically. This also means that we are all genius, we are all brilliant, we are all amazing individuals but in order for us to be geniuses, brilliant and amazing individuals we have to cultivate this mindset from within and make it a new habit. Simply repeating an affirmation, visualizing, praying, etc. means nothing if it is not cultivated within and made into knowing. People who are geniuses, brilliant and amazing do not believe they are geniuses, brilliant and amazing. They know it.

How Do You Cultivate Knowing? 

The way to cultivate knowing is by practicing following your intuition. Before I continue, remember ideas coming from our BA (Superconscious) symbolized as a KAMTA are going to be strange, unfamiliar and even a little weird but they will never put you in harms way, endanger you or force you to go against your ethics.

Remember, this is the part of our being that we are unfamiliar with, so to tap into it you have to do something that is out of the ordinary. For instance, when my wife and I got married, we both wanted a child. Like many married couples desiring to have a child, we stressed about it and even talked to an obstetrician to discuss our concerns, which is the sahu approach.

Then, my wife found a Bes statue. Bes, in Kamta belief is a “civilized” African faery/dwarf spirit who protects children, households from negative spirits and assists women in pregnancy.  Since he works closely with Nebhet (Nephthys)– the Lady of the House and Npu (Anubis)– the Kemetic Messenger spirit, I painted him red black, white and yellow. Now, I remember my wife placed the Bes statue in our living room and then he moved to our bedroom. Next, she offered him pieces of candy and then one day, I offered him a glass of Red Stripe beer, which are all BA practices.

The next thing I know, one day my wife and I were joking around a little bit more than usual. I found myself spontaneously dancing for no reason, almost as if I was teenage boy flirting with her.  This went on for a long time during the month of February.  To make a long story short, almost a month after meeting the obstetrician, I had to go out of town for a conference. On the third day of the conference in March, my wife called me with some important news and told me she was pregnant.

Today, when I reflect back and think about that entire scenario of how our daughter was conceived, I tell you that Bes did not descend out of the ether into my wife and my body.  Bes was already present because he existed within the deep recesses of my mind or KAMTA and consequently, Bes manifested out of the darkness of my higher spirit. The offerings that were given to him were mental triggers to activate this spirit within my wife and I, so that he came into the light.  The funny thing was that during the pregnancy, my wife began to take on the form of Bes’ wife Tawret.

Now, if you are new to this and it sounds weird it is because you are relying on the intellect of your sahu (subconscious) and trying to figure it out but this is not the purpose of your sahu.  It is our BA’s responsibility to solve our problems. We are simply supposed to say, “Hey, I want x, y and z” and our BA is supposed to figure out how to make it happen.

Remember, the knowing part of your being does not need you to understand how it works.  My wife and I did not question how we were going to become pregnant. We focused on knowing that we would by allowing the BA (Superconscious) part of our being to figure out the details.

For some people, this sounds bizarre because you have seen pictures and/or film of people prostrated before some strange idol. These same images usually label the followers as being pagan, primitive and overly superstitious people who will give these idols anything their first born.  Sorry people, this is all fantasy created by so-called monotheistic people who have no understanding about how their mind works. True positive and permanent change is based upon connecting with our BA using images and symbols to awaken our potential.

Why I Use Vodou as a Black Man in America

17 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, I was 16 years old and my mother had sent my 12-year-old brother and I to the store to get a few items so that she could make lunch for us and my father when he returned home from work. The Famer Jack grocery store was almost a half-a-mile from the house, so as usual my brother and I told each other jokes as we walked to and from the store. On our way back from the store as we were walking home and carrying plastic grocery bags, a squad car out of nowhere, came to a screeching stop on the side of the road. Two white officers jumped out of the car and asked where we were coming from. Scared as hell, we said the store. Then, the officers told us to go to the side of the car, while they frisked us.  Finding nothing, they jumped back in the car and sped off down the street.

As my brother and I picked up the groceries off the ground, while seeing passerby ride by us. All I could remember was feeling shame, frustrated, fear and anger all at the same time. My brother and I were speechless for the rest of the walk home.

When we got home, my father had just arrived and my mother asked us why did it take so long.  We told them that the cops had pulled us over. I remember telling my parents that I wanted to run from them but, my parents told my brother and I did the right thing. We were not guilty of anything so there was no reason to run but, still I was angry, embarrassed, upset, and frustrated because the way it sounded.  It was normal for the police to do this. The officers did not offer any apology or anything, as if they assumed that my brother and I were probably up to no good, just not today.

This was the first time I experienced being powerless but understood that it was not about being right but about surviving.  This incident made me think about all of those other kids who did not have parents or some wise adult in their sphere to tell them to focus on surviving and not on what was right. It made me think about one of my great uncles who was murdered by a white man during the Jim Crow era and justice was not served because my uncle was Black. It also made me think about all of those untold stories of Black men and women who were murdered all throughout history.

But, the incident also made me see a big chink in Christianity because I remembered thinking how could you believe that Jesus protects you but you see police harassment and brutality as a part of life?  I mean no disrespect to my parents and older generations who have had to deal with this nonsense. I understand that is what they had to do at the time and no matter how much we, in the younger generation(s), may disagree with the choices made by those in the Civil Rights era. The facts are, those people made sacrifices by being attacked by dogs, having fire houses opened on them, etc., in order for us to talk to today. For that, I am extremely appreciative and grateful but, we live in a different time now and I do not have to live by the Christian Golden Rule.

Now, I pay homage to my warrior spirits because the blood of Jesus only covered a fraction of my being, but my spirits cover all of me like the cape of Spawn, because they are the warrior aspect of my BA (Higher Self/Superconscious).

Ever since I have come into the understanding of who I AM, I know that I shape my reality.  I know that what works for “them” does not work for me and vice versa.  And, that’s why as a Black Man, I thank God for the Vodou, which gives me a different way of seeing.  Please note, that by the term Vodou I am referring to the rebellious African spirit and Bantu-Kongo cosmological thinking in the western society.

For instance, after coming into my own, the last time I was pulled over by the cops, it was Maat who oversaw the whole incident. It was at night and a cop pulled me over because my rear lights were out. Then, the cop escorted me to the nearest auto parts store so that I could replace the fuse that had blown.

The point that I am making, is that we need to stop being hypocritical. It absolutely drove me crazy hearing my parents and their generation talk about the goodness of Jesus and how powerful the blood of Jesus was in one breath but, then complain how the “man” kept them down, harassed and brutalized them, as if “the man” was more powerful than God.

I hear people today saying a similar thing. They talk about how we are gods and goddesses but then complain about how the “man” or some other conspiracy is working on them. I mean, if you claim to be a god or goddess…SHOW AND PROVE!
