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

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

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.

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
Image from the Kamta Primer

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. 





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.

Image result for zeus

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.

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.

African Spirituality SAVES You MONEY

3 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Have you ever been in a situation where you are pressed to make a decision on something even though you do not have all of the facts? Well, I was in one of those situations.  It started as an opportunity that seemed to come to me out of nowhere and as I am trying to relax so that I can see the whole situation clearly.  I am being bombarded with more and more details of just how great this opportunity is and why I should jump on it.

So, I try to sleep on it (as people say) and later that night I have a dream.  I dreamt that I was in the backseat of a van (meaning I have no control where the vehicle is going) and we’re going into this real sketchy town that I learn later (in the dream) that the people are cannibals (another omen that s*** is about to get real).

But, I am still being bombarded with these messages that this is a great opportunity and I need to make a move. Again, I check myself to make sure that I am not hesitating because of subconscious fear.

So, your boy does some deep breathing but it does not work because I am too close to it. I try to take a hot shower and still nothing. Then, my wife seeing I am stressed massages my shoulders, neck and scalp with lavender oil. It does the trick.

Npu (Anubis) - The Opener of the Way

Npu (Anubis) – The Opener of the Way

I get a visit from my ancestor to check out something before making a decision, so I give an offering to her and other ancestors to express my gratitude.  So, I get my tablets out and do a reading about the situation, which led me to talk to my Npu.  I am reminded that Npu deals with obstacles so I tell him, “Hey, open the way. There are too many obstacles with this ish. “

The next day, my head is clearer and I discuss the facts with my wife. I decide to tell all the parties involve that I am not making a move until I get assurance.  I explain to them that if things are meant to be then, ways will open and that I am not about to push a square block into a peg hole.

So, the ball starts rolling the way I decide.

What I was experiencing is what many term as artificial synchronicities.

Artificial synchronicities are engineered to drain, distract, mislead, sabotage or suppress one from seeing.  In other words, artificial synchronicities are designed to get you to ignore your intuition by bombarding you with a lot of information, usually misinformation.

Natural synchronicities come from your Higher Self or your BA. It is your BA/Higher Spirits/the Universe’s way of letting you know that a quantum shift if imminent, which can be either smooth or emotionally charge. The purpose of natural synchronicities is to confirm a decision you have made and forecast the progress of your decision.

Most people get caught up in artificial synchronicities because if you were like me, born and raised in the church, you don’t the difference between the natural and artificial synchronicities. You were raised to see all synchronicities as a blessing and to act on (blind) faith.

How do you know the difference between the two? Usually, artificial synchronicities always seen to need you to rush to do it or you will miss out on the opportunity. They are always forceful and rushed and seem to require no planning but, we live in a cause and effect world. Nothing happens accidentally, coincidentally or haphazardly.  When things seem too good to be true, usually they are but that’s the reason you need to have an oracle to help you to see through the smoke.

If I had not had done a reading with my tablets, had the dream, the visit from my ancestor and the idea to get my Npu to work, I would have been out of a lot of money because I believed “it was meant to be” instead of looking at all of the facts. One of the purposes of approaching spirituality from the Kemetic perspective is to remove some of ambiguities in life. Yes, African Spirituality saves you money, time and energy.  Don’t be fooled. The reason “sleepyheads” don’t want us to communicate with our ancestors, use divination systems, etc. is because they know it works and want us to continue to be under their foot. The tide is changing and it start with you doing you.
