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.

3 Ways Kemetic Shamans Work Their Altars

7 01 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know Family, it is very common and easy for individuals transitioning from Protestant Christian beliefs to traditional spiritual practices.  To build an altar and be instructed to tend to it religiously as if it is a place or worship.

It should be understood that unless you are converting and/or joining a traditional religion. Anyone transitioning from any dogmatic religion to a spiritual tradition should feel relieved because they are no longer controlled by religious fear and guilt.

That being said, an altar should be liberating but what often occurs is that we listened to people who are in traditional religions and take their advice as Absolute Truth. The next thing you know, we find ourselves confused because we were told by these individuals that we cannot mix our ancestor images with our spirit guides, we cannot mix our ancestors or spirit guides with the divinities, or we cannot adopt or mix different divinities from different pantheons, and so on.  A big part of spirituality deals with living your life based upon what works, and not upon what others theorize or tell you what to do. Because the only one who knows what is best for you is your Higher Self. Since there are no rules and regulations on how to work your Spirit. You learn by trial and error and this is the beauty of shamanism because instead of relying on someone else’s word or hearsay.  You are given an opportunity to develop your own rapport with the Spirit so that you know how the Divine works, instead of theorizing how the Divine works as most religious people do. (Please note that this is not in any form or fashion a criticism directed to those who follow religious order. I am simply stating observations based upon my experience.)

To avoid this spiritual pitfall, it is important to understand first and foremost that the altar is a physical representation of the vast energies that exist within our mind/spirit. When you erect an altar, essentially what you are doing is calling a specific energy (ancestor, archetype, etc.) out of latency in your Infinite Spirit. It is similar to retrieving a file off of your computer or retrieving a memory from your Spirit because the true altar is within.

Small Npu Het (Altar for Npu Spirits who act as guides for the dead)

For instance, before I became serious about venerating my ancestors, I used to speak with my ancestors in my mind.  I would simply imagine them and talk to them as if they were right in front of me, similar to how Napoleon Hill would consult his 9 Invisible Counselors.  This really needs to be understood because I have had people contact me and say, “I cannot build an altar for my ancestors, spirit guides or guardian spirits.”  They usually say that they cannot build an altar because of lack of space but mostly it is because they live with someone who does not respect their views about spirituality (e.g. roommate, family member, etc.). I usually have to explain to them that if they have a photograph of ancestor hanging on a wall that is an altar. If they have a wallet size photo, picture, a drawing of a spirit or even a small symbol like a pebble, this is an altar as well if they see it as a manifestation of the spirit. There have been times I have been walking down the street and I see a small black pebble, which reminds me of the netchar Npu (Enpu, Anpu or Anubis in Greek). So, I pick it up, thank Npu, place it in my pocket and go about my business.   In fact, most of the items that are on my Npu altar (het Npu) are items that I found, which I interpreted that my Npu wanted on their het.  This is because according to Bantu-Kongo thinking an altar can be created wherever there is a maa aankh (a Kemetic crossroad where two realms exist). 

So the idea that some spirit is going to punish (or reward) you for how you tend to their altar is another form of religious fear and guilt, promoted by people who 1) do not understand the nature of the human spirit, or. 2) They want you to view them as an authority over your spirituality. You have to understand that when people tell you that Oshun doesn’t like you to eat pumpkin and other taboos, this is based upon their perspective. This may be a restriction that Oshun wants a particular person, group, etc. to adhere, which is why it is important to remember Code 1: Maa is Truth and is Based Upon Perspective.   Everyone is not going to share your perspective, agree with you or have the same experience as you, which is why you should always test everything out for yourself.

Second, when it comes to building an altar, you can do as you feel. If you feel that something needs to be placed on your altar do so. If you feel that something needs to be removed from your altar, then do so. As stated earlier, unless you are in or following a traditional religious order, no one (living or dead) has the right to tell you what to do with your altar. Just like no one has the right to tell you what to do with your mind.

Last, but not least, if you call an energy (ancestor, spirit guide and guardian spirit) out of latency.  Understand that it needs energy in order to stay in your awareness, which means any time and thought given to it, feeds it. Our ancestors, spirit guides and guardian spirits do not care if you offer them a glass of water and a candle, or choose to contemplate on them for ten minutes a day. Remember, our ancestors and spirit guides are not invasive because they understand the perils of living in this physical realm.  They are happy that you are even consider giving them an offering, which is the reason they will assist you despite the fact that your family sees you as a “black sheep” due to the spirituality you are involved in.

Therefore, understand that our ancestors and spirit guides know that we are not at the level where we can communicate with them by simply shifting our awareness, but one day we will get there.  If they want something, don’t be afraid to tell your spirits, “Help me to get it.” Your spirits want a bigger altar, then tell them, “Hey, I need a larger space to have a bigger altar.”

Remember, all of this is a dialogue that takes place within the mind.

Hope this helps.

How to Distinguish When Your Guardian Spirits Are Speaking

31 12 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I posted “How to Distinguish between the Higher Self, Ancestors, Spirit Guides and lower self” and wanted to do the Guardian Spirits separately because in my experience, they communicate differently from our ancestors and spirit guides.

If you read and study ancient literature from cultures around the world you will eventually come across a common theme, which is that the guardian spirits, the gods, deities, angels or whatever you choose to call them, can be very difficult at time to work with. In fact, true spiritual practitioners will tell you that you have to establish a rapport with some of these entities or they will refuse to work with you.  I have found that all of this literature is simply metaphorical talk indicating that these entities are protecting a particular energy.

Why are they protecting these energies you might ask? Well, every culture has their own take on it, but what I discovered was that it ties into why we are here, or our purpose. You see, if we were given everything that we wanted, we would be like an entitled, spoil child who does not appreciate anything that is given. So, a divine system was set up so that in order for us get what we want, we have to earn it.

Now, how I learned this is a story within itself but to make a long story short. I had to work with Sokar, the Kemetic guardian spirit of illness, disease, suffering and rebirth, once upon a time to overcome an illness because I abused coffee, caffeinated products and chocolate during my vegan days…LOL. Stop judging me, it wasn’t meat! LOL.  Anyway, I was in a real bad financial situation, young and really naive, so I was working two full-times job.  As you can imagine, I was burning the candle on both ends by not sleeping either.  Well, when I got knocked out, I got seriously knocked down. So, I started working with Sokar to repair my health. I read books, studied and experimented with certain effects of herbs, adjusted my diet, and abstained from certain foods and drinks.  I learned to meditate and stay focused for the whole day. I exercised, I wore certain colors and even a beaded necklace I made to honor and keep my mind on Sokar. I mean, I did a lot for over a month and then, finally I got Sokar’s attention and I received my health boon. I didn’t know at the time but after working with Sokar I later learned that Sokar only helps those who are persistent, resilient, mature and internally strong.

I used to think that Sokar was cruel but I learned that like the Hindu Kali,  Sokar helped me to learn that doing what is Right does not always feel good.  It is like taking medicine or eating vegetables. You do it because it is the Right thing to do.  It is the necessary thing to do. It is the mature thing to do. Everything cannot be sugar coated.  Sometimes you have to cut foods, habits, people, etc. out of your life in order to grow, and that’s what Sokar showed me. That’s how I was reborn.

I would not have had a maturer and richer life if I had not gone through that experience. It was this experience that helped me to see that the divine energy is guarded by these entities we commonly call gods, angels, deities, guardian spirits, etc., which westerners call archetypes. But these are not just forms that exists in the deep recesses of our mind.  They exist and can be found throughout nature, and since we are a product of nature. They can be found within us.

Again, based upon my experience, unlike ancestors and spirit guides, angels, gods, goddesses, deities, guardian spirits or whatever you choose to call them (I personally call them neters or netchars) are tied into the Universe so they use Universal symbols such as animal guides or totems. They are similar to your Higher Self with the difference being that they do not pop in and give you advice like the Higher Self unless you have a rapport with them.  Usually, when they do pop up it is through a totem or some other symbol.  For instance, I used to always have run-ins with dogs, especially feral dogs that always seem to travel in 3’s.  When I did the numerology surrounding my birthday, time of my birth and the year of my birth. The number 3, 9 and 21 were all over me and that’s how I found out that one of my spiritual guardians was the Kemetic Npu (Anpu, Anubis).

HRU (Heru, Horus)

As I have mentioned in previous post, the hawk-masked Hru also communicates with me using his animal totem the hawk. Please note that I am not saying you will have the same experience.  If you live in Antarctica and you were working with Hru, he might not send a hawk to visit you but you might suddenly run into someone wearing a tee-shirt with a hawk on it. Or, you might just get a Atlanta Hawks hat! Yeah, the guardian spirits are weird like that but the reason you want to connect with your spiritual guardians is because they will help you to build a rapport with the other guardians.

So, to learn how the guardian spirits communicate to you, remember these are universal energies, so they exist universally.  It does not matter what face or avatar you choose. Simply follow your intuition and if you need help, call upon your ancestors and spirit guides. Once you do this familiarize yourself with their colors, sacred numbers, animal totems and human archetypes. The more you do so, the more you will see that we are not alone. We have just been deluded into believing we are alone, so that we do not reclaim our heritage.

Hope this helps.

Why Mimicking Kemet Does Not Work

12 10 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

One day when I had started this whole journey I was called to jury duty. Like most people, I tried my best to get out of it but there was no escape. I had to go, so on Tuesday I got a book and headed downtown to the courthouse. When I arrived, one of the bailiffs told everyone who was waiting that we could have a seat in one or two rooms, while they went through the jury selection process.  I decided to go into the waiting room that did not have a TV, so I could read. When I went inside, there was a guy looked like he was in his mid-30s reading a book.  He looked up and saw me, and we nodded at each other and sat down I opened my book.

About 15 or 30 minutes into my book, the guy next to me noticing that the title of my book had the word Kemetic, asked what I was reading. I told him the title and he flashed the cover of his book, which was about the kabbalah system. From that moment, we started talking about the various esoteric systems, history and spiritual development.

Around noon, the baliff came in and told us that we could take a lunch but not to go too far because they are conducting jury selections. So, me and this brother went to the cafeteria and continued talking about everything we had learned. When we got to the cafeteria, he paid for my lunch so that we could continue talking. Then, as we’re eating he asked me how I was doing on my physical. By physical he meant, my money, my daily exercises, my sleep, etc.

I told him, “Well, I am okay. I can be a little better” and then he said something that changed my life. He told me that he was not 30 but actually 52 years old. He mentioned that the other day, he beat his 16 year old son in a 100 yard dash. Looking at him in total amazement, he explained how he exercised and it was HIIT (High-intensity interval training) before HIIT was ever discovered and mentioned.

Then, he asked me, “Can I be honest with you?” I told him to go ahead, and then he began to tell me some hard truths. He told me that I was working the spiritual thing properly and that my understanding in history was coming along great, but my physical was weak. He said, “If you look at the Ancient Egyptian wall carvings. You will not see overweight or malnourished Ancient Africans. They were fit people…”

Astonished by his acute observation but his wisdom still was flying over my head, I said, “Well I try to exercise and stay on top of things.”

Seeing that I was not totally grasping what he was saying he said, “No little brother. What I am saying is that the reason the Kemetic people were able to accomplish so much is because they did not have to worry about their physical.”

As soon as he finished the sentence, the light bulb came on and I said, “You’re right! The Nile River provided the Kemetic people with everything they needed to nourish themselves, which allowed them to focus on other issues like the mysteries of the universe. “

“That’s right! So, are you doing the same?”

The answer of course was no, and with that he said, “That’s where the problem lies.”

The message was simple, deep and shook me to the core because at the time I was really about mimicking the Kemetic way of life. Technically speaking, the Kemetic people never had a religion because they were attuned with Nature (NTR). They had always believed in the existence of One Supreme Being years before the heretic king Akhenaten was born and promoted his Atenism movement but even then. The people were still attuned with nature and it was this way of life that was spiritual. They learned how to trust their Higher Self, it was the Jews, Christians, Arabs and the Moors, who refused to develop themselves spiritually that gave birth to what we call today religion. Then, shortly after, the bailiff came in and told us that we were free to go because the case had been settled out of court.

I thanked him for dinner and the stimulating conversation. I exchanged phone numbers and I went my separate way. Then, it hit me that he was wearing a reddish (burgundy) sweater, I met him on Tuesday at the courthouse and all of this occurred around 12 Noon.  There were all signs that I was talking to an incarnation of Kemetic warrior spirit Hru Aakhuti. In other words, Hru Aakhuti was monitoring my progress and decided to pay me a visit by giving me some advice on things that I should be doing.

I remember that I was sort of weirded out when I realized this but then I remembered that there were numerous biblical stories of how angels appeared, but I never experienced this until I stopped being religious.

The funny thing is that when I called this guy a few days later, he seriously acted as if he did not know me. However, the message he told me stayed with me to this day. It is because of what he said, I believe that the reason it so difficult to come up with new ideas and solutions. Is because many of us are in survival mode, which the Kemetic people in general never faced. To add to this dilemma, the reason many of us are in survival mode is because of post slavery conditionings. This is the reason I could no longer mimic what the Kemetic people because they don’t know my struggle.

For the record, please understand that I am not religious bashing.  I know there are numerous paths that have led us to be at this point, but we have to see the facts for what they are. We have to accept the fact that none of the religions that we have subscribed to have improve our lot.  They have all further divided us because they are all misinterpretations and/or perversions of our Nilotic ancestors teachings used against us.  This is the reason it is silly to mimic someone else’s interpretation of what our ancestors did.  Our ancestors worked with their ancestors and trusted their intuition, which is what we need to get back to doing.

The good news is that I found solace in knowing that they were near and had not abandoned me. I also found solace in understanding that the importance of meditation, divination and rituals, is to get us to that peaceful mind state that our Nilotic ancestors had that led them not to worry about where their food was going to come from. In other words, the concepts and principles are still applicable and with them we can change our world. What we need to understand is that the last thing we need is another religion to teach us how to be children of God. All we need to do is to listen to our higher Self and reclaim our divinity.

Why God Does Not Answer Your Prayers

29 09 2017

Hetepu Family (Peace & Blessings)

If you were raised in the West, you probably heard the biblical story about Moses and the Children of Israel. If you have not heard the story, basically according to biblical lore the Egyptians enslaved the children of Israel and forced them to build their temples, statues and pyramids. When Moses saw how his people were being mistreated, he rebelled against the Egyptian authority and later told the Pharaoh that God said “Let my people go.” After the Egyptians suffered several plagues because the Pharaoh refused to obey God/Moses demands. Pharaoh finally conceded and let the children of Israel leave but for some reason had a change of heart. So, while the children of Israel were fleeing and being pursued by the Egyptians, they cried out to God to save them. And, God caused the Red Sea to part so that the children of Israel could pass but when the encroaching Egyptian army neared. God allowed the Red Sea to swallow them, thus killing the Egyptian army.

Now, for the record, please note that I stated Egyptian and not Kemetic because numerous sources have proven that this story was a complete fabrication. The Kemetic society was the most advanced civilization in the ancient world and the most detailed oriented as well, recording every historical event that affected their society. But, there are no records of the Kemetic people enslaving another group of people to build their society, freeing thousands of people or their military being swallowed by the Red Sea.

Also, unbeknownst to most, according to an article posted on JNS.org, Mustafa Waziri, director-general of Luxor’s Antiquities, said in an interview with Egyptian daily newspaper Al-Youm Al-Sabih, “King Pharaoh who ruled Egypt during the epoch of our prophet Moses was not one of the kings who reigned in ancient Egypt, as we tend to believe. He belonged to the Beduin Jabarin dynasty, which is called ‘Hyksos,’” The Hyskos were a Semitic culture that ruled Kemet for about 100 or so years before they were ousted by the indigenous Kemetians. The interesting thing about the article is that the dictator’s name was Pharaoh, it was not the title given to the Egyptian rulers.  It should also be noted that the Hyskos were followers of Set (Baal).

Statue of Hyskos or Shepherd Kings

That being said, returning back to this biblical story, the lesson many of us learned in the West is that if we give our cares and concerns to God as the children of Israel had done.  That God will save us and part whatever obstacles in our path as he had done to the Red Sea for the fleeing children of Israel.

However, this is not what is taught in the Jewish mysticism schools. According to Jewish mystics, when the children of Israel cried out to God to save them. The Great God responded back, “Why are you calling me?”

The Great God posed the question to the children of Israel because he was reminding them that they were made in the image of God and therefore have the power to save themselves.

Think about that for a moment.

Generations upon generations of people have been taught to beg and plead for God to save themselves.  When the true interpretation of the story taught by Jewish people is that God wants us to save ourselves by tapping into our divine being. Can you understand the psychological ramifications that this misinterpretation has caused? For some of you I know this is a shock because we have been told this story for most of our childhood but you can look it up yourself. The true interpretation of this story that God basically told the children of Israel to save themselves.

It should now become apparent that the reason our situation is getting worse is because God is not answering his calls. God has left the building because God did not create us so that we can call upon him for everything that goes wrong in our life. No one wants to be called upon just in the time of need, not even God. God did not create us so that God can be our slave. God or the Divine created us so that we could one day grow up from being children of God and become adults of God or of the Divine…gods and goddesses.

The Divine created with an infinite creative spirit. The Divine is waiting for us all to embrace our divinity and stop worrying about our status quo. Until that time, situations will to get worse because it is only when we are in dire needs and faced with closed doors that miracles occur proving that we are divine beings.

So the bad news is that is that if you do not begin to learn how to tap into your divinity, situations are going to become increasingly worse.  However, the good news is that if you are feeling anxious, fearful, worried, etc., this is your Set masquerading as your ego and by ignoring these emotions, we take power from Set and empower our Higher Self or Osar.

It is important to understand that the true lesson of the biblical story is that the children of Israel saved themselves. The story was never meant to be taken literal but intended to indicate that when we invoke the power of the Divine within us, instead of giving into the fear of the ego. We can change any physical event, no matter the obstacle that lie ahead. Remember, the Divine created us to be the Hru of our own story, not follow the religion of others.

Five Steps Those on the Shamanic Path Follow

25 09 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I have received some emails from family asking what are some basic things that we can to do.

Well, according to the maa aankh cosmogram, the human Ab soul is like the sun, which means by Divine design, it is natural for us to grow spiritually. In other words, what this means is that regardless of who you are, where you come from or what you believe, we all essentially want the same thing, which is to live a better life than our predecessors. However, in order for us to occur we must grow spiritually and our soul must evolve, which means we must have a spiritual death. A spiritual death occurs when we find ourselves in a crossroad situation and realize that our old ways of thinking, acting and behaving will not solve the dilemma we find ourselves in.  It is at this moment we must choose to either do what is easy and follow our habitual way of thinking, acting and behaving.  Or, choose to do what is right by learning new ways of acting, behaving and thinking. When we choose to do what is right over what is easy, we choose to follow the righteous path and this is when spiritual evolution occurs, hence the saying ‘the righteous will not die but will be reborn.’

Spiritual rebirth can occur in many ways and the road to enlightenment can take on many paths, because enlightenment consist of a change in consciousness from a selfish and egotistical being to that of an inclusive Divine being. The path presented here is referred to as the shamanic path.

The shamanic path is based upon the theory that since our Creator is Perfect in every way, we essentially are perfect also.  In fact, it can be said that we are actually gods and goddesses having a human experience but due to us living in the land of the living (TASETT).  We have acquired spiritual impurities like fear, inhibitions, egotism, selfishness, etc., that prevent us from living as the enlightened beings that our Perfect Creator created us to be. Consequently, every hardship, problem, obstacles, etc. is a Divine design to purify our Ab soul so that we can return back to our divine state of being.  Therefore, whenever we experience a physical obstacle such as an illness, an impoverished situation, accident, etc. that we find is physically impossible to solve.  It is an opportunity for us to develop spiritually by leaving this physical dimension and appealing to the spiritual realm, which is where our help comes from.

The following is a list of things that those on the shamanic path of spiritual enlightenment practice daily:

  1. Take Responsibility for Everything Wrong In Your Life. This does not mean that every problem that occurred in your life is your fault. Most of the problems that we have in our life are due to the influences that surrounded us during our childhood. Therefore, it is impossible to take blame for something someone else had done but when you refuse to take responsibility for the problems. It forces you to seek help from external sources instead of appealing to the spiritual realm within. By taking responsibility for everything wrong in your life, you force yourself to spiritually evolve.
  2. You Welcome Crossroad Situations. We live in a spiritually ignorant society that encourages us to avoid all problems at all costs. Consequently, a growing number of people lack tenacity, grit and power because they run from their problems. Spiritual strength like physical strength comes from exercising ones spiritual muscles. Therefore, those who are in crossroad situations do not run from them but embrace them by seeking out what is the righteous thing to do. Understanding that their decision to live righteous will yield a spiritual greater reward.
  3. Converse with Their Spirits Daily. When it is understood that this physical realm – TASETT – is limited and is full of illusions of wealth, power, peace, etc., like the mirages that appear in the desert. In other words, although the physical realm is important, it cannot give us eternal wealth, peace, power, happiness, health, etc. The solution to every problem we have exists in the spiritual realm or KAMTA. Therefore, those on shamanic path communicate with their ancestors and other spirits (via dreams, divination, trance, etc.) regularly because they have an interests in human affairs and can provide us with insight beyond our physical sight.
  4. Help Themselves by Helping Others. One of the benefits of embarking upon the shamanic path is that when you focus on helping others, you help yourself and vice versa. When you help someone to improve their life, it increases your personal ra (spiritual power). The more ra you acquire the more power you have to make changes in your life and perform magick or what the unenlightened refer to as miracles.
  5. Live in the Now. Those on the shamanic path of spiritual enlightenment know that every day brings on new challenges and new experiences. Therefore, there are things that were done yesterday, which may not be appropriate for today. Because we cannot change the past, those following this path are humble and eagerly apologize for the mistakes they have made. They recognize that destructive and negative habits they and anyone for that matter have committed, are the result of lack of self-knowledge. So, since they cannot change the past, they focus their attention on making changes in the present to ensure a better tomorrow.

Since enlightenment does not occur overnight and is a lifetime process, instead of focusing on enlightenment, those on the shamanic path focus instead on living, understanding that life itself is a spiritual process. Therefore, every day we implement these five steps in order to improve our life and improve the lives of others.





The Reason You Are Discouraged from Practicing True Kemetic Spirituality

25 09 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

Have you ever wondered why filmmakers continue to make ridiculous sci-fi horror movies like X-Men Apocalypse, The Mummy and other films about the Kemetic/Kamitic (Ancient Africans of the Nile Valley) suggesting that they worshipped idols, glorified the dead and/or were fascinated with the end of the world?  I mean have you ever thought about how Kemet was the greatest civilization in the ancient world, yet Western religion and filmmakers tell us that these ancient people who lived for thousands of years and taught the Western fathers of thought, did not know there was a Supreme Being and they worshipped the dead? That’s ridiculous and does not make sense does it?

When we really study ancient world history we find that Kemet/Kamit is considered the greatest civilization that existed because it was the longest standing African society and the most influential culture in the history of the world. For generations Kemet has inspired millions of people from all over the world because just a glimpse at any of the Kemetic artifacts has the ability to strike awe. As a result, since Kemetic spirituality permeated every aspect of the Kemetic reality, Western scholars from all over the planet have tried to understand the spirituality of the Kemeic people, in order to better comprehend how this culture that gave the world philosophy, mathematics, science, engineering, medicine, etc. with such limited technology. Western scholars have speculated and created numerous ridiculous theories, from an alien culture descending from Eurasia into Africa, and creating the Kemetic culture then mysteriously disappearing, to alien race of beings descending from space and flying away in their UFOs.

But, the truth about Kemetic/Kamitic spirituality have never been hidden or a secret as Western scholars proclaim.  Think about it. The same people that have blatantly copied everything that they could from the Kemetic society does not understand what the basis of Kemetic/Kamitic spirituality.  No. Westerners have known for years what Kemetic/Kamitic spirituality was all about. They just refuse to publicize.

Westerners first learned about Kemetic/Kamitic spirituality when Howard Carter began investigating the tomb of King Tutankhamen.  It was at that moment Westerners learned that the deceased king was given food, drinks, building tools, sculptures, boats, weapons and everything that he needed.  The truth that Westerners refuse to publicize is that the human soul cannot die.

Consequently, to ensure that this spiritual truth is never realized by the greater majority, Westerners continue to propagate the myth the Kemetic/Kamitic people (and their Sub-Saharan African descendants) worship idols and the dead.

Why do Western scholars refuse to publicize that the basis of the Kemetic spirituality is that the human soul cannot die?

Because it is a direct contradiction to Western religious belief that there is only one individual who has survived death. When in truth, we all survive death. In other words, the Supreme Being does not have one son and does not favor one particular group of people. We are all Children of the Divine because we are all gods and goddesses having a human experience.  Westerners know that if people accept this concept, then people would cease relinquishing their power to external forces and instead take responsibility for their lives and salvation.

Once it is understood that it is a myth that God has an “only begotten son” and that it is a myth that this figure called Jesus is the only being to descend into hell and ascend to heaven, thus giving him the power to cast people into heaven or hell. Instead accepted that we are all the Divine’s “begotten sons and daughters,”  which means that just like the Divine cannot die the immortal part of our being (our Ab/human soul) cannot die.   Then, verify this theory by communicating with our ancestors via dreams and divination, that the human soul does not die.

Then the greatest fear that Western religion holds over us would cease and we will cease to fear death.

Therefore, the reason you are discouraged from truly practicing Kemetic/Kamitic spirituality is to prevent you from taking control of your life. However, once you realize that you cannot die, you lose your fear and will courageously accept any challenge knowing that in the end, you are destined to win. In other words, once you drop your religion, you will find God.

Hetep.
