Don’t Forget the Real Reason for the Easter Season

28 03 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Good Friday and Easter are right around the corner. What’s funny about this season is that so-called spiritual people talk about the pagan roots of Easter mentioning how eggs and the cute little bunnies correspond to pagan deities.  But they fail to see the real pagan aspect of this holiday, so let me explain.

Have you ever wondered why the Christian holiday Easter changes dates?  According to the early Christian writers, the death and resurrection of their savior occurred around the Jewish Passover, which is celebrated on the first full moon following the Spring Equinox.  That means “Good” Friday Jesus died and Sunday rose again.

Now, since we’re not pagan and do not believe in worshiping people (or things) who allegedly died for our sins, but understanding the spiritual significance of celestial events. During Spring Equinox, the rays of the sun shine on the earth’s equator making the days and night almost equal.  However, we see Spring Equinox as the return of life, light and warmth from the dark and cold winter. During this time, the days start to become longer and warmer and the nights shorter as we move towards Summer.  The grass begins to grow, trees begin to bud, the birds are chirping, etc. because Spring or Fruitfulness is in the air, hence the reason pre-Christians used rabbits and eggs to symbolize the return of life and festivity from the dreary and cold winter.

Spring or Fertility signifies the return of Life from a presumably metaphorical death.

Metaphorically speaking, we are talking about the Superconscious.

Remember, the Superconscious is the deep part of our being that Ralph Emerson called the oversoul and claimed that all of our power comes from. Napoleon Hill called it the Infinite Intelligence, and our Kemetic ancestors called it the BA.  The Superconscous is the basis of all western religious beliefs but due to a lack of metaphysical understanding, spiritual concepts were interpreted literally. When Jesus speaks of his Father in Heaven, he is not referring to a Deity but his Superconscious in the deepest part of our being.  Jesus even teaches his disciples to talk to their Superconscious by saying, “Our Father who art in Heaven…”

From the Kemetic perspective, Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris) is the Lord of the Underworld, the spirit of fertility (symbolized by his green features) and the personification of our Superconscious.  Meaning Osar symbolizes the hidden force responsible for rebirth.  The return of Spring signifies Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus) defeating Set and restoring the throne of Osar or the return of fertility but spiritually speaking. This celestial event is a reminder that to overcome our Set (Ego and destructive subconscious habits), we must consciously (symbolized as Hru) connect with our Osar (Superconscious). Remember, according to the Story of Osar, Hru fought Set and was unable to defeat his more experienced adversary at war, until he consciously took a back seat and allowed Osar to take over. In other words, salvation is not given. The only one who can save us is US.

Remember, we did not incarnate to this planet just to be a child who needs to be constantly saved from everything. We came here to develop our divine power so that we can save ourselves.  We are Children of the Most High and eventually we have to grow up because we incarnated here to be a god and goddess. So, leave the “saving” for the true pagans who want to worship men because they are afraid to be a god and goddess.

Hru Osar and Set

It is great to purchase new things for children, but remember the real reason for the Easter season and Celebrate that you Know about Osar!

KAMTA: Recreating the Real Black Church

24 01 2018
Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.
I have had some people ask how I discovered Kamta and was able to make all the connections. Well, all I can say is that it was because of my ancestors. I like a lot of people had read and studied Kemetic history, lore and spirituality for some years but I was not able to make any headway. Then, things changed when I began working with my ancestors and asking them to guide me in my understanding (See: How to Distinguish between the Higher Self, Ancestors, Spirit Guides and lower self).
What they showed me was that when the first Africans were brought to North America, they were taken from the Kongo-Angolan region and forced to work as indentured servants.  Since the Kongo ruler had voluntarily converted to Christianity prior to the advent of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, most of the people taken from the Kongo-Angolan region were either Christian or at least familiar with the Christian faith and already had a working syncretism with their indigenous beliefs in place. Consequently, because these Africans had Africanized Christianity, it is believed by some scholars that the Portuguese and Spaniards called these Africans the pejorative term Judio (pronounced hoo-dee-oh) which is Spanish for Jewish referring to the Jews who continued to practice the Old Religion (Judaism) even after learning about Jesus Christ. The term judio was later corrupted in the English language and became what we call hoodoo.
Although there are some authors who attempt to trace the term hoodoo to an African source, it should be noted that most African Americans never used the term to refer to their spiritual practice because in the African mindset.  Hoodoo was considered a form of witchcraft, which was a forbidden practice. The term is totally a European creation that was used to describe early African American spirituality and in particular the Black Church.

The Kongo Cross

So, when the descendants from the Kongo-Angolan region arrived in North America they were stripped of all of their possessions.  However, they managed to bring with them their dikenga commonly called today the Kongo Cross, which is a unique Kongo cosmogram that mapped the universe. Although these early Africans in North America were not able to syncretize their beliefs and practices under the guise of the Catholic saints as their kinfolk had done in Brazil, Cuba, Haiti and other parts of South America. Through the Kongo Cosmogram or Kongo Cross, our early ancestors managed to use the Kongo cosmogram to syncretize their beliefs with the Protestant Christian faith in order to create their own religion.
They were able to accomplish this feat because the Kongo cosmogram like most medicine wheels could be interpreted in numerous ways depending upon perspective. For instance, the basic understanding of the dikenga or Kongo Cross is that our universe is composed of two worlds – the land of the living (above) and the land of the dead (below). When human beings incarnate to the land of the living, his or her soul mimics the four movements of the sun – Kala (Sunrise/Birth), Tukala (Midday/Life), Luvemba (Sunset/Death) and Musoni (Midnight/Rebirth).  However, if an individual was experiencing a lot of bad luck, failing health, grave misfortunes, etc., it was understood that the individual’s sun is setting or dying due to some impurity (or sin). In this case, it was necessary for the individual to travel to the land of the dead so that their ancestors could purify them and they could be reborn.
Kongo Cosmogram

Basic Kongo Cosmogram

Rebirth consisted of going to the land of the dead because the land of the dead called mpemba or the “land of whiteness” and purity was seen as a mysterious realm where one found great rewards. Allegorically the land of the dead or mpemba was believed to exist underground but could also be found where the land of the living and the land of the dead met like the plantation and the hush harbors, a city and the forest, a town and the wilderness, a municipal and cemetery, land and a body of water, etc.
Now, what’s unknown to most is that for a long period of time, the original Black Church did not meet in buildings. No, quite the contrary. Our ancestors met in brooks, groves, hush harbors, etc. because slave owners, fearing that early African Americans were plotting a revolt, prohibited them from congregating. When the Second Great Awakening occurred in North America, that’s when a large number of early African Americans willingly converted to Christianity particularly the Baptist and Methodist denominations. Although, most historians are uncertain as to why this massive conversion took place, a thorough analysis of the Old Kongo thinking reveals that it was most likely because full body baptism (submersion into a body of water) was most likely interpreted as the passing into the land of mpemba. Remnants of our Old Kongo belief can still be found in the church today, which is the reason before adherents are baptized.  They are instructed to wear white robes or garments. Another example of this philosophical thinking can be seen in the fact that most elders within the church wear white, and so on, which corresponds to the Luvemba moment – the setting sun – also the color white.
But due to charlatans within our community, the commercialization and exploitation of African American spirituality by outsiders, the Black Church has become a hollow institutions that focused solely on religious entertainment. The loss of African philosophy and theology, combined with the passing of the elders unable to pass their spiritual knowledge to subsequent generations, has resulted in the steady decline of the Black Church.
It was my ancestors that helped me to see that the people of the Kongo-Angolan region were part of the Bantu or Ba-Ntu tribal group, which archeologists and historians have found, once upon a time lived and dwelled along the Nile River. Because as the saying goes: there is nothing new under the sun. The remnants of the Kongo Cross in North America could be syncretized with the Kemetic Amun Ra system to create the maa aankh cosmogram.
For the record, I had read the Story of Ra and Oset (Isis) numerous times.  In fact, I read it so many times that when I saw or heard any mention of it.  I just glossed over it because I did not seen any importance of it. But, it was my ancestors that led me to understand that Ra’s “Secret/Hidden” name was Amun (the Hidden) Ra.  They later showed me how Amun Ra corresponds to the Moon, which was given greater significance then the Sun. It was through this understanding that led me to discover the Maa Aankh.
The basis of the Maa Aankh cosmogram is that the world is composed of two lands called above TASETT (the Red Lands), which is ruled by Set, and KAMTA (the Black Lands), which is ruled by Osar – the owner of the white hedjet crown.  When a human being incarnates to the land of the living or the harsh Red Lands, we must follow the path of Ra, which was discovered by Oset – KhepeRA (Kala in KiKongo/Sunrise/Birth), RA (Tukala in KiKongo/Midday/Life), RA Atum (Luvemba in KiKongo/Sunset/Death) and Amun RA (Musoni in KiKongo/Midnight/Rebirth).

                                   Maa Aankh Cosmogram

Similar to the Kongo land of the dead or mpemba (land of whiteness/purity), KAMTA is called the Black Lands because of the dark fertile soil due to the inundation of the Nile River, but it is an allusion to the mysterious spiritual realm of the ancestors.  Hence, the reason the Kemetians referred to the southern region as the land of their ancestors and symbolized this region by the white Hedjet crown and the Kemetic ancestor Osar.
The purpose of sharing this with you is because many of us (myself included) have been convinced that we were stripped of our culture and it is just not true. The whole purpose of telling us this is so that we never return back to our cultural way of thinking. There are all sorts of examples I could list to prove that we did not lose our culture. We lost the philosophy and theology behind our culture, which is the reason many talk about the ancestors but are afraid to work with them.
KAMTA is the recreation of the brooks, groves, hush harbors, the forest, the wilderness, the cemetery, the underground, the lake, the sea and anywhere there is a mysterious reward including the deep recesses of the mind. This is where all of our answers and solutions come from, and why our ancestors met there to plot their revolts.  So, don’t be afraid of the dark because this is where our ancestors reside.
Hope this helps.

Why Every Spiritual Minded Individual Should Have an Oracle

31 12 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, one day I was watching a documentary I think about the San people and how for centuries, they managed to retain their culture even in these modern times.  When the American visitor asked the San elder about their culture and lifestyle. The elder explain how they got their food from the land and asked the American visitor if he wanted to accompany men on a hunt. To which the visitor acknowledged and said he would.

Centuries of wisdom had taught the San men to walk in a single line as to not confuse their foot tracks. It also taught them study their surroundings, observe the animal tracks left in the arid land, the animal droppings and most importantly how to get water from the dry vegetation if they were dehydrated. Then, after days of hunting and unable to find a prey so that they could bring it back and feed their village. One of the men took out a pouch revealing an oracle. With his oracle in hand, the man asked his ancestors to give them direction so that they could successfully find an animal to feed their people. Then, the oracle was thrown and after giving praise the man gathered the pieces and they proceeded in another direction. Shortly after, they spotted their prey, which they quietly stalked and gently killed to feed their village, the American visitor and themselves.

In typical westernized fashion, the show continued talking about how the San people lived their lives as such for centuries. It completely glossed over the fact that if the one man had not used an oracle, the men’s hunt would have been unsuccessful. The divination practice was glossed over because in western thinking, divination does not exist due to the fact that it cannot be explained scientifically. (Divination can be explained, but more on that later).

The reason most westerners do not understand divination tools is because of charlatans, parlor trick readers (such as the ones shown in the TV series “Shut Eye”), television psychics, etc.  This combined with overzealous preachers with poor historical and theological skills, who have put the ‘fear of God’ in the public by claiming that oracles are evil or the works of the devil. Most people are convinced that oracles are objects that foretell the future.  In truth, oracles do not predict the future, they simply inform you based upon present position, past anxieties and apprehensions, the decision you will most likely make. They give you an objective response regardless if you want to hear the truth or not.  The apostle Paul witnessed this first hand.  Although, fundamentalist Christians are quick to point out that Paul exorcised a “demonic spirit” out of a slave girl. What they fail to mention is that the reason Paul “exorcised” the slave girl was because she possessed an oracular spirit who was annoying Paul by proclaiming truth about him (Acts 16:18).

Before proceeding, it should be noted that every culture has used oracles to speak with God within but fundamentalist Christians are quick to argue against it by reciting Leviticus 19:26, which states “Do not go to mediums or consult fortune-tellers.” However, these fundamentalists refuse to mention that the Great Jehovah allowed certain divination practices such as arrow sortilege that was randomly shaken from a case; the careful study of a sacrificed animal’s liver; prophetic dreams; the use of teraphims, the Urim and Thummim lots, which was not a casting of votes as fundamentalists proclaim.   It should also be noted that these oracles were used in both the Old and New Testaments, even after the death of the Christian savior. The reason the Christian God allowed the use of oracles in the bible is because they are tools to help you to communicate with the Divine within.

For instance, if there was a supervisory opening at your job and you were qualified for the position, but might require you working late hours, working on the weekends (especially Sunday) and worst yet, you will have to supervise your office pals, which means no more goofing around as before. The oracle is going to tell you that a position has opened up and you are qualified to do it but are you emotionally and mentally mature to handle such responsibility? Do you have the discipline to do what is right versus what is easy?

Every oracle, no matter if it is a simple tool like the flip of a coin, game dice to playing cards, simply. All oracles do basically the same thing and the only difference between them is the complexity and detailed insight they give. For instance, a deck of cards is more complex and efficient then a 25 cent quarter piece because the deck of cards has more symbols (4 suits x 13 cards = 52 not including the Wilds) than the heads and tails of the quarter.

For the record, I am against seeing mediums and consulting with fortune-tellers too because you do not know if they are being genuine.  In fact, the real reason westerners are often taken advantage by charlatans, parlor trick readers, television psychics, overzealous preachers and we can also include in this list dishonest leaders, televangelists, professionals (dietitians, doctors, scientists, etc.), politicians, etc. is because western culture is based upon a monetary system. This means that we trust only those who have purchased their credential over our own intuition. As a result, we look to everyone outside of our self to tell us what the best thing to do for our life is, instead of intuiting what is best for ourselves.

Why do we do this? Because most of us do not understand that the Divine is within. We do not understand that everything that exists in the Universe can be found within our being. In short, most of us do not know when God (or our ancestors, spirit guides, angels, etc.) is talking. So, when we receive hunches from our Higher Self we are not sure if it is us talking or what.  When we receive symbolic instructions from our ancestors in our dreams. We ask other people to interpret them instead of learning how to interpret our dreams ourselves.  We want the preacher man to tell us how to live because we respect them as being the divine mouths for God, instead of seeking the kingdom of God from within.  Simply put, we are programmed to go without instead of going within.  Therefore, if you are tired of being taken advantage of and placed in a vulnerable position, consider learning and using an oracle.

Now before I proceed, understand that I am not saying that there aren’t any good leaders, clergymen, professionals (dietitians, doctors, scientists, etc.), politicians, etc. but in a money based economy that is fueled by competition. Where it is impossible to know if an individual is being honest, genuine or just greedy and selfish.  The oracles can help.

Oracles can help you discern if someone is being honest or not. They can also help you to see another’s intentions but most importantly.  Oracles can help you to help you overcome your own shortcomings because the reason most of us cannot succeed or evolve to the next level is because we self-sabotage our progress. We could be working on a project and everything is going well but then our anxieties, fear of the unknown, fear of failure, etc. kicks in and the next thing you know…KAPUT!

Oracles can be used in other situations as well. For instance, everything in your life is going well and you meet your ideal mate whom you decide to marry. Then several years later, your spouse becomes gravely ill, lose their high paying job due to accident, or “suddenly” out of the blue tells you that they are not happy. In the Maa: A Guide to the Kamitic Way for Personal Transformation, where I briefly speak about an oracle I am fond of.  There is a listing of the Seven Codes of Maa, which are very similar to the Seven Universal Laws.  There we find that Code 6: Maa is Order and Not Coincidence, which means basically that accidents and other events do not “suddenly” happens. It only appears that these events and incidents suddenly occur because we cannot see with our naked eyes the invisible forces leading to event but, oracles can see and help you to see the whole universal picture.

When you use an oracle, essentially what you are doing is taking the guess work out of the equation and handing the issue you are dealing with over to your BA and sahu.  In a nutshell when you do a reading your sahu brings all of your stored memories to the table, which includes your wants, desires, anxieties, fears, past experiences, etc.  And, your BA brings all of your potential to the table. Your BA says, “You are not healthy, wealthy, successful, etc. now but other people with similar circumstances are so your dream is not impossible. “ Oracles give you the straight objective truth.

For instance, I remember hearing of a lady who went to a diviner to help her find a companion. According to the diviner, this lady was tired of being alone and really wanted a man but could not figure out why she was not able to attract a decent suitor. When the oracle was casted it revealed that all the lady did was go to work and return home. This was her daily routine and the oracle revealed that she was not going to find anyone by following the same routine. She had to do something different if she wanted different results in her life.

There are many types of oracles such as dreams, scrying, tea leaves reading, and bibliomancy just to name a few. It does not matter which oracle you choose to use but when you become proficient in the use of it. You will receive messages and omens using this system. For instance, the other day I was outside dumping the garbage and out of nowhere a hawk appeared and captured a little rodent. I knew right then and there, that was Hru speaking to me because Hru uses hawk totems.

HRU (Heru, Horus)

Note that oracles do not tell you what to do. They simply give you a snapshot of what will happen based upon the present situation and if you make a certain decision.  Therefore, to change the predicted outcome revealed by an oracle, simply change your decision.

Also, it is ideal that you get a reading, you should do so for major problems.  Although, you are not going to be punished for asking for insight on buying a new outfit, a pair of shoes, etc. It is considered insulting to ask for such trivial matters. Instead, ask for insight regarding serious situations such as job loss, illness, family issues, etc.

So, as you can see, the only real reason why people discourage you from using oracles is because they want to continue taking advantage of you.  This is why in this day and age, every spiritual minded individual should have at least one oracle to help them to develop their intuition because we are really going to need to use them in this upcoming year, to direct the course of events for our people.

Hope that helps.

How to Distinguish between the Higher Self, Ancestors, Spirit Guides and lower self

27 11 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Do you talk to yourself often and if so, are you sure you know who you are talking too? If you’ve read any of my articles and books then you know that we all have ancestors and spirit guides, and that they are actually pretty easy to communicate with! Because the philosophy and theology behind our cultural tradition was lost, metaphysics was rarely taught in the church so a couple of common questions are “how do I know who is talking to me?” and “how do I know if the voice speaking to me is evil or not?” Hopefully, this post will help clarify the subject for you.

First, let me reassure you that you are not crazy. There are spirits that exist all around us and they communicate to us all the time. Communicating with spirits is actually a natural ability that we all have. It is believed that there are three ways that spirits communicate to us and you need to understand the method that works best for you because usually we each have one or two methods of receiving spiritual communication, rarely does an individual possess all three abilities.

If You Talk to Yourself and:

  • You hear voices speak to you in your own environment or within your mind. You are probably clairaudient, which means you receive intuitive information through hearing.
  • You see images, colors, symbols and/or you have prophetic dreams, visions, etc. You are probably clairvoyant, which means you receive intuitive information visually.
  • You have a gut feeling, hunch and/or a sense of knowing. Then, you are probably claircognizance, which means you receive intuitive information through your thoughts.

So the question is how do you know the DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPIRIT GUIDES, THE HIGHER SELF who all communicate to us intuitively?

Well, for starters lets explain all of them.

The Higher Self or Osar

Unless you are involved in a spiritual tradition that seeks to make a more active use of your higher self. For the most part, the higher self is usually low key and only intercedes in our daily upon request by delivering us random insights and warnings, which is the reason it is personified as the mummified Osar. Usually the Higher Self speaks to us when we are totally unfocused and doing menial tasks such as taking a shower, washing dishes, driving, folding laundry, etc.

The higher self usually uses your own voice so when it speaks, it will sound like you are talking to yourself. The only difference between you and your Higher Self is that it will not discourage you or tell you to do something that will bring you harm. The Higher Self usually tells you what you don’t want to hear in a calm and peaceful manner. It is the voice that encourages you to do the right thing. Your Osar usually rests on your right shoulder, as he corresponds to the right hemisphere of the brain.

Ancestors & Spirit Guides or Aakhu

Ancestors and spirit guides or aakhu on the other hand speak a little bit differently from our Higher Self because they each have their own personalities. It can be a little hard to distinguish messages coming from your Higher Self and aakhu especially if you are a newcomer.  The best way I have found to distinguish between the Higher Self and aakhu is simply by building a rapport with your aakhu through regular veneration at an ancestral altar (het aakhu), which allows you to ask your akkhu questions and observe their responses. Here you can ask your aakhu to give you special cues to help you to know when it is them. If you are clairaudient you can ask them to identify themselves through their voice, some sound like a bell, etc. If you are clairvoyant you may ask or notice your aakhu through particular images, and so on with claircognizance.

For instance, I have a particular group of aakhu who announce themselves through ritual drumming, while I have others who make themselves known through old bluesy gospel music, I am talking like Rosetta Tharpe.

Knowing how spirits communicate with you will help you to better identify them because unlike the Higher Self.  It is my experience that our aakhu do not randomly pop into our awareness unannounced. The aakhu are pretty much on standby like good parents who do not intrude in our life (unless it is an emergency) but allow us to live however we wish.  When called upon they help us to learn from the choices and decisions we have made.

For instance, as I have mentioned in previous articles, I discovered the Maa Aankh cosmogram through observing my grandmother’s obituary. I attribute this discovery solely to my aakhu (my grandmother, other ancestral spirits and spirit guides) because I had a very loving and strong relationship with my grandmother before she had passed. She was a very religious woman who had always wanted to be a teacher, which she instilled within my mom and myself. Although she was not able to attend college and fulfill her dream, she was an avid reader.  However, I do not recall her reading anything about the Kongo people or the people of Kemet while she was alive. This is not to say that she didn’t but I don’t recall, which leads me to believe that it was a spirit guide that helped me to make this cultural connection. It was my grandmother who acted as a bridge between myself and the spirit guide, and this is how I discovered the cosmogram.

Another thing I noticed about aakhu is that unlike our Higher Self because they have their own personalities. They also retain their personal likes and dislikes. For instance, our aakhu may not care how we live our life but if they do not agree with a choice we made. They may or may not choose to assist you.  I remember for the longest time I felt as if I was hitting a brick wall until one day I went before my aakhu and told them that Christianity was not working for me, for x, y and z reasons. Almost immediately afterwards, I felt as if I had a breakthrough because I convinced them that what I was doing was going to benefit our family in the long run. However, understanding that our aakhu were once people means that they understand spiritual development, which is the reason they do not intrude in our lives and unless it is an emergency, they will not intercede until called upon. But, like the Higher Self, the aakhu tell us what we need to hear. They are encouraging but real, which is why it is recommended that you speak to your aakhu as you would if they were still physically alive. The one thing to remember about the aakhu is that they support our Higher Self or Osar and encourage us to do what is right.

Lower Self, Ego-Self or Set

Now, your lower self or ego-self is the devil or Satan spoke of in most religions but it is not the epitome of evil as organized religions portray it. The lower self or ego-self has gotten a bad rap mainly because most people do not understand that it is tied our subconscious, which means it is totally focused on our physical survival. The reason our ego-self is arrogant and selfish is because it wants to play it safe. Some things you have to understand about the ego-self is that it does not like change and it is very logical to the point that it is illogical. I have told people this before, that I used to work at this job and although it was a decent job. I complained and sometimes after late nights, I would say “I wish I did not have to go in today.” Well, one day I got my wish and was laid off because my ego-self could not discern that I just wanted more sleep. This is why people who understand it describe it as being like a computer that is only as good as its’ programmed or an animal that has to be trained. In the Kemetic tradition, the ego-self was described as being an immature, chaotic and stubborn child, whom the Kemetic sages called Set.

Now that we understand that our ego-self or lower self is connected to everything we have subconsciously learned from birth (both good and bad). We can see that we all have a Set who does a great job when it comes to protecting us, protecting our interest and helping us to physically but anything beyond that, Set fails “epiclly”.

Now, we have all met our Set and probably did not know it. Anytime you want to do something and there is an opposing voice that comes and discourages you from doing so, that is our Set. Set is our personal saboteur. For instance, you see someone you are interested in talking to, Set will discourage you by using whatever you subconsciously fear. If you think you are not tall enough, then you Set will tell you the person is not interested in you because you are too short.  If you think that you are a 5 and the other person is a 10. Set, will tell you this person is out of your league, and so on. Set is the voice who discourages you from reaching your full potential. Your Set is usually perched on your left shoulder, as he corresponds to the left hemisphere of the brain.

Negative Spirits or Aapepu

Just like there are positive spirits, there are also negative spirits and these spirits are called Aapepu. Unlike aakhu, aapepu are unevolved human spirits. Many of them made costly unwise choices while alive and they will usually encourage us to make the same mistakes that they made in their life. Most aapepu do not communicate very smoothly and when they are around the environment is usually stressful, uncomfortable, unpleasant, depressing or vampire-like vibe that sucks the joy out of things.

Another thing about aapepu is that unlike aakhu who understand that growth is the result of maturity and development. Aapepu support the lower self or Set and encourage us to do what is Easy, which is the reason why their advice usually leads to accidents, mishaps and all sorts of chaos.

Usually, most aapepu are very invasive and you can sense that they are near because you will feel as if you are being spied upon, watched, and/or touched by someone who is yucky. You may feel the hair on the back of your neck stand up or you may feel as if you just walked into some cobwebs.

Although the horror film industry has convinced the public to fear these entities. The reality is that we bump shoulders with aapepu all the time but, because they are low dwelling spirits.  They will not stick around us for long. It is sort of like children being in a room full of adults who talking about budget and finances. It aapepu do happen to stick around, it is because we are actively engaged in low energy activities. For instance, if you are hanging with people who engage in criminal activities, then you will most likely encounter a number of aapepu and probably need to do regular spiritual cleansings. If not, you may have a string of bad luck experiences such as being in the wrong place at the wrong time, sudden unexplainable losses, etc.

Just to recap.

The Higher Self or Osar

If you receive a brilliant idea, message, flash of insight, etc. just out of the blue, most likely it is coming from your Higher Self or Osar.  Remember, the Higher Self pops up during mundane and menial tasks to give you encouraging, supportive and wise words, like “Stop here”, “Turn right!”, “Do ____ to change _____.”

Ancestors & Spirit Guides or Aakhu

Unless it is an emergency, they usually appear when called upon but do not dictate what you should do with your life.  When your aakhu appear you may see their face in your mind’s eye, hear their voice, reminded of them through a favorite cologne or perfume they used to wear, etc.  The aakhu offer encouraging words like a good parent such as, “You may not want to do ____ because of what happened the last time.” “It’d be wise for you to stay at your current job instead of taking the other.”

The lower self, ego-self or Set

Gives you discouraging and negative advice based upon your subconscious fears to play it safe by saying, “I can’t do _____.” Set sits on your left shoulder.

Negative Spirits or Aapepu

Give you that creepy feeling as if someone is spying or watching you and will make you feel as if your hair is standing up on the back of your neck. To remove these spirits a simple prayer and the burning of high energy incense (e.g. frankincense, etc.) will encourage them to leave.

Hope that helps.

What Does It Really Mean to Tap Into the Power of God?

15 10 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, the other day a fellow comrade shared a video with me that featured a number of prominent actresses and singers rapping about male genitalia. I am sure many of you have seen or heard about this video so there is no need to give it more energy than it deserves. The thing was that my friend (as a number of people I saw in the comment section) were pretty shocked.  When I asked my Brah why he was so upset that some of the ladies were in the video. He told me because he really respected some of the ladies in the video because he thought they were “conscious” and would not humiliate themselves by stooping to such a level.  This prompted us to have a really deep conversation because this is one of the misnomers that people have about consciousness.

Consciousness or “woke” means that you are aware or can see, but consciousness does not mean spiritual development and elevation. What’s the difference, you ask? Let me give you a real quick example.  Due to the aggressive anti-tobacco campaign, everyone (non-smokers and smokers alike) throughout the United States are aware of the dangers of cigarette smoking, hence they are “conscious” or “woke.” However, it is believed that 36.5 million people continue to smoke cigarettes because cigarette smoking is a destructive habit that is deeply lodged into peoples’ lower spirit (sahu/subconscious part of their being). The sahu part of our being is not governed by reasoning but by emotions, which is why if you ask a cigarette smoker when they started smoking and why. Most of them will tell you that it was peer pressure and risk-taking behavior. This is the reason it is so difficult for so many people to break this habit because we all do not respond to peer pressure and social conditionings in the same manner.

What does this have to do with conscious people? Simple. Just because a person is conscious or woke does not mean that they overcome their personal Set. I have met people from all walks of life who have literally floored me with the amount of knowledge they knew, like the gangster who was telling me how he knew the Ancient Egyptians were Black. However, this knowledge was not enough to make him stop abusing alcohol and smoking weed. Or, the lady with the most gorgeous dreadlocks who was all into holistic living, spirituality, doing yoga, etc. but she couldn’t have a successful relationship because she treated all men as if they were her enemy.

The point that I am making is that consciousness or woke means that you are aware or can see because you are informed.  It does not mean you are developing spiritually or spiritually evolving. This misunderstanding is due to the fact that archeologists, historians and Western pagans have told people that Djahuti (in Greek Thoth) is the Greek Hermes and Roman Mercury, but this is not correct. Hermes and Mercury are both tricksters like the Yoruba Eshu and Kemetic Npu (Anubis).  In Kemetic lore, it was not until Npu (Anubis) assisted Oset (Isis) that she was able to successfully find the body parts of Osar (Osiris) and successfully mummify him with Djahuti’s assistance. This is an allusion referring to the fact that Npu Opens the Way, as one of his praise names Ap-Uat (Opener of the Way), states.

In other words, Npu starts the ball rolling for your development. He leads you to the door that will open to your spiritual and physical freedom.   He is the one responsible for all of us becoming “woke” because he is the lord of information and the master of this Information Age, but note. With all of this information, we still cannot solve live peacefully with one another. We still cannot eradicate poverty or cease the destruction of our planet. This is a classic trickster move to get us to understand that all of the technology in the world cannot bring us peace, prosperity, perfect health, success, wealth, love, etc. because these are all ethereal.

To put it bluntly, actors, actresses, athletes, singers, musicians, etc. are not gods and goddesses.  They are entertainers paraded in front of us to be our role models but these people have Sets (personal demons) that they have to overcome. This is why I was not surprised when I saw certain actresses and singers publicly disgracing themselves because they may have been conscious but their Osar was’t alive.

The enemy knows that we all draw from the Rau (the Power of God), which is the archetypical Source of All Things. What archeologists, historians, etc. call gods and goddesses are actually guardian spirits or archetypes of the Rau that the Kemetic people called netcharu (netjaru).  Or, we can simply call them netchars.  We are all influenced by these guardian spirits or netchars but some of these netchars take a more dominant role in our life. These netchars are sometimes referred to as our personal guardians, our godheads and/or spiritual parents.  We all have spiritual parents rather we choose to believe in them or not, and this goes for celebrities as well.

So, the reason Snoop Dogg refers to himself as such, is because he is a Npumesh (child of Npu). Beyonce is Oset’s child. Kayne is Hrumesh (Hru or Horus’ child), and we can go on and on.  All you have to do is study the mythology and observe how these people act and behave. The reason I am mentioning this is because if these individuals’ Osar had been revived in their life, they would understand that many of the problems that they face corresponds to their guardian spirit or netchar. For instance, everyone has problems with self-control but this is a major problem with all of Hru’s children. Hru’s children will struggle with some form of self-control because that’s the energy that they incarnated with on to the planet. Now,  with that being said, go back and look at the things that Kayne West has done. If you are into Latin music, like I am because they actually proudly sing about the Yoruba orishas (the guardian spirits of the Yoruba tradition), you will see this self-control problem manifesting in Marc Anthony.

Understand.  The enemy knows how the guardian spirits manifest themselves but he refuses to publicly acknowledge it and will continue to delude us by saying they are gods, goddesses, deities, etc. Set does this because he does not want us to truly learn about these energies, so we can use them to overcome our personal Sets. Does it make sense why it is so Easy to sing and rap about the latest dance, drink, drug, syrup, sex position, latest craze, mysigony, etc.? Again, in the Kemetic lore Set was said to be married to Nebhet, the guardian spirit who governs entertainment, until she finally left him. So, it is great to encourage these entertainers when they act and behave in our best interest but that’s it.

Yes, encourage these celebrities to resurrect their Osar so we can all be free from this mess.  In fact, I look forward to that day when all of us free from this mental/spiritual tyranny.  First instance, could you imagine if Snoop had made a song about his divinity instead of “What’s My Name?” In fact, could you imagine what would happen if Kayne, Beyonce, or any of these entertainers had an awakened Osar how powerful their music would be? I mean seriously think how Hip Hop would have been different if the pioneers had taken their creative genius and used it as a means of empowerment.  Then, put a trademark on it so that it could be used for empowerment instead of being capitalized and monopolized by those who do not have our best interests. I mean did you know there are neo-fascist rappers? I mean just think of the stupidity in that, a group of people who hate you because of your complexion but they are going to take your music and use it to promote their hatred of you?

Again, I am not here to place blame on anyone because it is the enemy that has manipulated and tricked us all. Does it make sense why the enemy manipulates these entertainers to serving his selfish purpose for an award, a trophy, a ring, public gratification, money, etc.?

Yes, the enemy (Set) takes advantage of us all because of our ignorance of our Higher Self or Osar.

So, let’s not be deluded.  We need to see celebrities for who they are, which is ordinary people with similar if not greater struggles as us. Just because Set parades these talented individuals in front of us as false idols does not make them special. We need to return our eyes to the true glory of the Divine and replace these false idols with real models of individuals who have successfully overcome their Set.

Why You Need to Be Maa Kheru (Born Again Kemetically)

8 10 2017

You know one question that I seem to always get is, “How do you know that the Spirits are real?” I understand that the reason I get this question is because most of us spend all of our childhood being taught to believe only in what we see. We go to school and we are taught to prove everything that we believe and ignore everything that does not logically add up.  But, when it comes to religion we are simply taught to just believe. We are discouraged from reading the history of the religion. For a while we are discouraged from researching and investigating anything regarding religion, out of fear that we will be branded a heretic. But the calling to come into our divinity is too strong and we decide to take steps to find our true self.

When we finally answer our calling and began studying spirituality, we become conscious, which makes us happy, elated, scared at times, even angry but overall, most of us content that we opened the door to our True Self. As we read and listen to lecturer after lecturer and read some more, we see that we are becoming a more aware individual. Things we used to do, we do not do any more. Music we listen to we do not listen to anymore.  Even the people we used to associate with we stop associating with them because we have become conscious. Before long, we are intellectual masters able to quote and paraphrase the most distinguished authors to the most secretive sources. Our family and friends are amazed at us because we seemed to be most likely to not read any books, and here we have our own library.

But, there is something that begs us to go beyond the intellectual understanding of the Spirit because there is one hurdle we have yet to cross.

What lingers in many of our mind Family is the religion we were taught as a child. This lingering ideology prevents many of us from taking that last step because the last thing we want to do is believe in a “Mystery God”.  You see, we have talked about ancestors and how our ancient ancestors worked with Spirits, but our Western social upbringing and indoctrinating religious experience prevents us taking this final step to working with our ancestors and Spirits.  The unfortunate thing is that failure to take this final step will result in you being just an intellectual bitter conscious individual. So, hopefully my experience will help you to take this step.

As most of you know, prior to accepting my calling I was homeless for a while because I was following people whom I thought was conscious and whom I thought had my best interest. I remember sleeping on a park bench at times, on the floor of peoples’ homes and in drug infested motels. I remember during those times because of my spiritual immaturity and out of sheer desperation, I decided to sell drugs but thank God, I had read Kemetic mythology.  Because after picking up the stash and heading out the door and down the street. That’s when I met my Npu (Greek Anubis) who said, “You don’t want to go down that road because if you do. It is going to take a long time to get back.”

How did I know it was Npu talking? Because Npu is the Kemetic Elleggua, who appears at the crossroad and right at the moment before s*** pops off.  If I had not listened to my Npu, there is no telling where I would be right now.  The thing is that although it took me a while to recognize who my Spirits were.  I went through this experience because I had to learn how to see the limitations of metaphysics.

Now, I know that some people will say that Npu is Hermes and that Hermes is Thoth or Djahuti (Tehuti) but I have not found this to be the case. Djahuti is a guardian spirit of wisdom. In my experience, Djahuti does not appear to you when you are in trouble.  No, you go to him when you are in trouble. Djahuti is the Kemetic Orunmila and like most sages, when he is alone. He is pondering the mysteries of the universe.

So, as to how do you know if the Spirits are real or not? Well, besides communicating to you intuitively, they also have call numerous signs that reveals that it is them. For instance, Npu’s number is 3 and one of his favorite totems are dogs.  He is the guardian of the dead, so whenever my Npu is near. I usually see the number 3, three feral dogs, or things in his colors of red/black/white (sorry I cannot show my real Npu het).

Npu (Anubis) - The Opener of the Way

Npu (Anubis) – The Opener of the Way

On a side note, Jesus ain’t never communicated to me this way.  In fact, I cannot recall having any prayers answered by Jesus, which is the reason I doubt if he is real. However, Npu and the rest of the netcharu (guardian spirits) have all shown me signs that they are near, thus they are listening and that they are real. In fact, I cannot tell you all of the ways the netcharu or netchars have made themselves known but here are few examples.

Oset’s (Greek Isis) sacred number is 7 and her colors are like turquoise or ocean blue.  Oset is like the Kemetic Yemoja but she is not the same. To me Oset navigated the sea to find the body of Osar and this is her connection to the seas. Consequently, I placed a blue and white sailboat on her het.  I remember one night I had a dream and I realized that it was Oset because she was holding a conch shell. When I purchased one of the shells and placed it on her het (spiritual house), my dreams became more lucid.

As I had mentioned in Maa Aankh, I developed a rapport with Sokar when I was unable to walk. I purchased a Lazarus statue and told him I would remove his crutches if he made me walk again, and not too long afterwards, I found myself dancing, which strengthened my legs and I haven’t had a problem since. Sokar is the Kemetic Babaluaiye, who is the Lord of Illness, and whom I found is fond of dancing. Please note that I am not telling you about something I have read or something that someone told me. This is my personal experience. Yes, if we do the etymology of the word Lazarus we find that it is a corruption of the word Osiris, but none of that helped me to walk at the time. It was by working with Sokar and realizing that Sokar helps only the strong and mature that I was healed.

Hru Aakhuti, who is the Kemetic Ogum but whom I have found to be more like the Palo Zarabanda.  Hru Aakhuti’s colors are red, purple and ocassionally green and black.  Although he is also associated with Mars and Aries.  My Hru Aakhuti is not the Kemetic spirit of war. In my experience, Set is the spirit that starts chaos, confusion and war. When Hru Aakhuti shows up, it is to bring whatever chaos that has been started to an end. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have seen Hru Aakhuti show up with a bang. Let’s just say it is enough to convince me that you want to honor him and seriously try to live righteously because he punishes whomever is wrong.

To me Maat is the netchart over the police and one day my ancestors suggested that I put some toy handcuffs on her het, which I did. Then, one night I was driving and I got stopped by the police.  The cop told me that taillights were out. When I told him that it must have just happened because I was not aware of it. The cop offered to lead me to the nearest auto store where I got a fuse. I knew that was Maat because Maat to me is the interpreter of the law at that moment. Her sacred number is the number 2. Guess how many fuses I needed? That’s right, 2. Coincidence? Maybe in the beginning but the more often these coincidences and synchronicities occur will eventually make you realize that there is something magickal to it.

There are numerous stories that I can share that I could be compiled into a Pert em Hru (Book of the Dead), like Hru descending one day and diplomatic resolving an issue between two individuals ready to fight or, many other stories.

The point is that all of these experiences convinced me that I am a powerful being and the enemy knows this but I would not have never realized my true potential if I had not been maa khru (born again Kemetically).

Therefore, the reason you have to take this step is because all of the stuff that made you conscious will also overwhelm and depress you. When you are overwhelmed and depressed, you begin to worry and therefore, not see things clearly. This is what was allegorized in the Kemetic Story of Osar as Set gouging out Hru’s eye. Hence, the reason Hru was not able to defeat Set and every battle ended in a stalemate.

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 and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

The reason you have to be reborn is so that you can see things from a higher perspective and fight from a higher perspective.  The most powerful way to remove religious indoctrination is through initiation, and though you are not formally being initiated. The maa kheru process is an informal initiation that works because it presents you with Maa (Divine Truths).

For instance, I was looking at something and saw this “conscious” brother talking all of this science about religion. I mean Brah was dropping some heavy stuff but right after that I saw him taking a selfie with this half-dressed girl who was wearing a tightest skirt ever. I almost came out and blasted ole’ boy as being a hypocrite until my ancestors stopped me and made me look again.

“Aha! I see you Npu!”

I almost forgot, Npu loves women. Like I said, he stays in the mix of it all. This brother was channeling Npu, who draws your attention to simple things in order for you to focus on real issues. So this brother taking a selfie with this “sleep” female was Npu’s way of getting her and others to wake up.

There is only so far your intellect can take you. The rest of they way, you will have to follow your Osar.

Why I Respect Kemet and Not the Moors? (Ashamed to do Voodoo)

2 10 2017

Hetep

For the record, I call you Family because it does not matter what you believe or where you come from, I consider you to be Family created from the same Spirit. I love you and want to see us all rise up.  I am a child of Kemetic spirituality and we are taught that even our foes are still family.  We are also taught that even when our family acts and behaves against us, like Set did it is out of ignorance, but they are still family. This does not mean that we are supposed to be subjugated or oppressed by them because we have a right to defend ourselves, but we must not forget that they are family.

That being said, I want to talk about something that has really been on my mind because times are changing and there are people saying that Africans enslaved Africans. What we must understand before we begin this discussions is that we cannot see the ancient world using our Western trained eyes. Just because a person has black or brown skin does not mean they were of the same tribe or clan, and this was certainly the case with the Moors.

Now, I am not going to turn this into bashing but just explain my point from a shamanic spiritual perspective.

So, let’s begin.

The Kemetic people as you know are the descendants of the Kushitic people (Ancient Nubia). Archaeological and historical research reveals that the indigenous Kemetic people actually migrated northwards towards the Mediterranean Sea from the Kush region.  So, Kemet is the daughter of Kush but when Kemet finally fell after several invasions and political upheaval. It was the Moors who basically became the stewards of the Kemetic teachings.

Who were the Moors? The Moors were basically a term that was applied to Arabs, European and the North Africans who had converted to Islam, hence blackamoor.

The Moors, became stewards of the Kemetic teachings and were responsible for introducing the maths, sciences, etc. to Europe.  Yes, they taught how to navigate using the stars, etc.

It is important to understand that discrimination in ancient times had nothing to do with race but tribal differences. Although we say Kemet and the Kemetic people, as if it was one nation of people. The Kemetic people consisted of numerous tribal clans, which is the reason we find traces of the Kemetic tradition scattered all over the Sub-Sahara. So, when we put things in perspective, what made Kemet great is that it was a very diverse African society consisting of numerous tribes united for a common cause.  Imagine that. Several groups of people specializing in specific skills and talents voluntarily coming together to make their nation great.

If this sounds strangely and eerily familiar, it is because this is the template that the ousted Europeans used to create America, with the difference being. That instead of the various groups voluntarily coming together they were forced. This is the reason Europeans studied the Kemetic people to an exact science and where did they get this idea from? It was from the Moors.

Understand that the reason we find documents and images of the Moors participating in the enslavement of Africans is because the Moors following Islamic belief and wanting to be included in the New World dominating scheme saw other Africans as non-Muslims, which translates to mean not part of my tribe. For the record, the Moors also enslaved fellow Arabs and Europeans.

So, were the Moors in cahoots with Europeans? It was because of money.  It funded their Islamic cause.  This all means that once again, the most divisive tool used against us was once again, religion. Let me explain.

Western society is built upon ideology. They come together based upon beliefs like the belief that “all people are free”, that “all people are Children of God”, or that “all men are created equal.” Again, notice that I said belief, which means that it is subject to individual interpretation, and not knowing. This erroneous belief sets-up the idea of Divine Right to rule others. In other words, the reason you are able to oppress others is because allegedly God favors you, your cause, etc., hence privilege.  I hope you see where I am going with this because this is what I call New World belief.

Traditional African societies like the Kemetic and other indigenous societies that followed afterward, are based upon the knowing that we are all Children of God.  This means that regardless of what you believe or do, you are still a child of God and respected as such. This perspective obliterates the whole Divine Right and puts everyone on equal footing.  This is basically is what we can refer to as an Old-World belief.

So, imagine if there were two guys fighting and each of them represented the perspective thoughts. The guy from the New World thought would believe that God fights for him, while the guy with the Old-World belief would just believe in himself.  New World thought focuses on world conquest.

Think about it. If the Moors had knowledge of the Americas prior to Christopher Columbus, then why did Europeans call the Americas the New World? It is obvious that it was because the Christians and Moors saw it as an opportunity to create an Egyptian-like society based upon oppressing others.

From a spiritual perspective the New World thinkers are the Moors and the Christians who worked together to destroy the Old-World thinkers or non-Muslims and non-Christians.

The facts reveal that the Moors worked with the Europeans and Arabs to enslave other Africans because they did not see themselves as Africans. They saw Africans as non-Muslims, just like the Arabs and later the Christians who saw the Africans as non-Christians, which meant according to biblical and koranic law, the Africans were uncivilized and had to forcefully be converted to Christianity and/or Islam.

So, correction, Africans did not sell each other into slavery.  It was the Africans who converted to Islam and later Christianity that sold Africans into slavery.

They all participated in the enslavement in order to stamp out Old World thinkers.

This popular dish still eaten in Cuba today called Moros con Cristianos (Moors and Christians) commemorates the partnership between the two groups to eradicate the Old World thinkers.  The black beans were not meant to symbolize black people but the Moors.  Racism based upon skin color did not evolve until later.

The Europeans from the beginning saw all of the Africans as slaves based upon their skin color.  They did not care if they were Muslim or not. They simply took advantage of the Moor’s self-hatred and eventually got rid of them as a middleman (the Moors).

The maiming and mistreatment of African people was perpetrated by Moors, Christians and Muslims because they represented the Old World views and were seen as less than human or “uncivilized.” It should now become clear why the terrorizing of descendants of Africans continues to this day by the same groups.

This is the reason the great historian John H. Clarke did not favor the Moors or Muslims and believed that the Moors, Muslims and Christians would direct us back into a form of slavery.

Why Kemet?

When the Portuguese stepped foot in the Kongo-Angolan region and began teaching Christianity. There was a group of Kongolese who wanted to maintain their Kongo tradition and continue to express their spiritual beliefs from their cultural perspective. Europeans interpreted the syncretistic  attitude of the Kongo people as a refusal to convert to Christianity. This is cultural misunderstanding is how African spirits like Lubaniba and Eshu became associated with the devil when there is no devil in African thinking. Here we see the first sign of Eurocentrism.

Since these Africans were seen as refusing to convert to Christianity wholeheartedly, the Spanish called them judios (pronounced in Spanish as hoo-dy-oh).  Today, in Cuba there is a Kongo based religion called Las Reglas de Palo or Palo for short, where there are some followers who are called Palo Judio (Jewish Palo) because they do not include any catholic imagery in their tradition.

One of the traditions that closely resembles the Palo religion (note resembles is not the same) is African American hoodoo. It is a documented fact that although the hoodoo tradition is a conglomerate of African beliefs and practices combined with Native American and European influence, the core is Kongo-Angolan base. This is the reason it is believed that the term hoodoo is a corruption of the Spanish term Judio, referring to the fact that those who practiced the tradition refused to convert to Christianity like the Jews in biblical times, hence Old World versus New World.  Keep in mind that African Americans themselves, until recently, never used the word hoodoo to describe their tradition, which means that the word is not of African origin. Just like the Palo Judio is not an African term but one initially meant to demonize the Old-World believers and thus justify their mistreatment.  This would also explain the reason hoodoo was deemed evil and defined as a Negro superstitious, cursing tradition.

Not only that, there were other indigenous African societies that existed throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, which means that the true stewards of the Kemetic culture are the indigenous Africans known as the BaKongo, Yoruba, Fon, Akan and so on. Let me say it again, the true descendants of the Kemetic people were scattered throughout Sub-Sahara Africa are the stewards of the Kemetic teachings. The problem is that many people are ashamed of those traditional African beliefs and ideas. To this day, people love to talk about how the Haitians defeated the French, Spanish and Americans but refuse to mention that it was through Vodou. Some people love to talk about the Kemetic people but refuse to mention that the Kemetic people had ushabti (a Kemetic version of an nkisi) and practiced all forms of magic that can be found throughout Sub-Sahara Africa and the rest of the Afro-Diaspora.

When we understand this from a spiritual perspective we see that Old World thinkers were beating the New World thinkers because they had an in depth understanding of the mind. The Kemetic people and their descendants put it that work to develop themselves but the New World thinkers did not. What Old World thinkers did is what people call voodoo, which is really the science of the Spirit.

Once again, if we study Kemetic lore from a metaphysical and metaphorical perspective we find that the Kemetic people prophesized this and allegorized it in the Story of Osar. Osar metaphorically speaking represents the Old-World ways and Set the New World.

In the Kemetic tradition, Set is not evil per se but does evil things because he also represents a new way of thinking. Osar symbolizes old traditions but also outdated traditions that have fallen.  Hru represents the best of the old and the new.  Set  was a powerful war spirit but when unchecked went haywire.

So, why Kemetic spirituality?

Kemet was the greatest and longest standing African civilization.  Although we cannot imitate and mimic the Kemetic tradition perfectly, the concepts and principles that the Kemetic people laid down in stone, are relevant then as they are relevant now.  When these concepts and principles are applied with love, understanding and a true appreciation for the African spirit. They are empowering, which is why when I step before my het (spiritual altar) and see my nine glasses dedicated to my spirits.  It is a visual reminder of my history, where I come from and who is the enemy. I am reminded that what made Kemet great is that metaphorically speaking nine tribes united together to oust Set. Therefore, it is our unity that that will empower us and bring an end to the Setian systems created against us. My het is a combination of both the Old and New World thinking.

Again, the purpose of this post is not to offend but to set the record straight and help us to see that the only philosophy that has improved our life as a people, are the ones based upon the cosmology of the Divine.

Hope that helps.
