Why is Kemet so Important to Afro-American Spirituality?

1 03 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

So I am posting this post because I just got accused of being racist. And, as you know, if you are a person of African descent who gets accused of being racist, then you must be doing something right.

So, why was I accused of being racist? Well, it is because a couple of “Kemetic pagans” (as they call themselves) disagreed with what I wrote in my latest book, Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way.  In my book, I wrote that one day I asked my ancestors why did they want me to study the Kemetic path.  They responded by telling me that it was so that I could know the Divine through my ancestors similar to how Hru (Horus) learned of his divinity through his father, Osar (Osiris). It is classic ancient African spirituality to go through your ancestors to find the Divine because, in the end, it is Divine Creator who is the Ancestor of us All.  It was at that moment, that I realized why Kemet was so important to people throughout the Afro-Diaspora.

I mentioned that it became painfully apparent that the reason archeologists engage in cherry-picking DNA research such as the reconstruction of Nefertiti, is because they only want evidence to support their white supremacist agenda, which is that westerners are superior and all non-westerners are inferior.

If archeologists really wanted to know what the ethnicity of the Kemetic people was why didn’t they conduct a DNA test on Tutankhamen’s grandmother Queen Tiye (shown above)? Instead, they focus solely on test subjects that will validate their claims, and when they can’t find evidences to support their ridiculous theories.

They opt out by claiming that everything was done by extraterrestrials (E.T.) because their culture did not achieve it.   For instance, claiming that Amenhotep IV or Akhenaten was an alien due to his elongated head instead of identifying that it may be a ritualistic practice such as head binding among the Mangbetu.

Now for the record, I was not surprised that archeologists reconstructed Nefertiti’s image and she appears to be caucasoid. This confirms my belief that she was a foreigner and that Akhenaten most likely married her to broker a peace treaty between the Kemetic and Mitanni kingdom.  Further evidence that she was a foreigner and had a huge influence on Akhenaten is proof that the Aten religion was a foreign concept, which almost resulted in Kemet being invaded by the Assyrians had not the Amun Ra priesthood stepped in and restored order (See Akhenaten is Not A Kemetic Hero).  The problem I have with these studies is that these so-called scholars try to paint a picture that Nefertiti was the epitome of beauty to the Kemetic people.

So, why do the western scholars dedicate so much effort to concealing the truth about the ethnicity of the Kemetic people, and why is it important? It is because by illustrating the Kemetic people as being European and portraying them as being everything but black and brown-skinned Africans. Westerners are able to deter people from discovering the true story about the Kemetic people, which is that many of them were forced to migrate throughout Sub-Sahara Africa due to war, the Arab sponsored slave trade, and later religious jihads.  Consequently, many of the Kemetic tribal nations settled in Central and West Africa where they were considered “newcomers” and they intermarried with the indigenous Africans in the region.

For instance, the oral history of the Yoruba people begins with the Nok people residing in present-day Nigeria forty thousand years ago and is visited by a peaceful African group from the east around 2000BC and 500BC.  Consequently, many of the Kemetic divinities survive in the Yoruba language as:

  • Osar or Ausa (Osiris, father of the gods) or Ausa (father)
  • Khepera or Khepara is the beetle Akpakara (beetle)
  • Ma’at the goddess of justice became Mate the goddess of justice
  • Oset or Auset is Iset or Ise (a water divinity)
  • Hru, Horus or Horise is Orise a Sky divinity

But the Yoruba are not the only nation who trace their ancestral roots back to Kemet.  According to the great African scholar and scientist Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop who wrote Civilization Or Barbarism: An Authentic Anthropology, the Ashanti (Ghana), Wolof (Senegal, Gambia, and Mauritania), the Mandinka (Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Berkina Faso, Mali, CotedÕ Ivoir),  the Dinka (Sudan), Dogon (Mali), and Zulu (South Afrika) also claim Kemetic ancestry.  The late African scholar K.K. Bunseki Fu-Kiau has also stated that according to cultural similarities that the Bantu-Kongo people were influenced by the Kemetic people.  What is interesting is that with all of these claims being made, Western scholars have yet to do DNA testing on any of these people to verify or prove they are wrong. Why, not?

It is obvious that western scholars really don’t want to know the ethnicity of the Kemetic people because they really don’t want people to know.  That you are the Kemetic descendant. This is the reason our history in this country always begins with slavery and not the kingdoms and civilizations that our ancestors were abducted from.  It is the same reason why they demonize our spirituality because they know if we really embraced our ancestral practices. We would turn the world upside down.

Never forget we had a culture and history before America

So, the fact that someone is upset must mean that their path must not be working out, hence I must be doing something right.





How to Get the Gods to Answer Your Prayers

19 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

28 12 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

Suspicious.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Occult Meaning Behind Star Wars’ Rey

21 12 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

You know, I have been watching all of the reviews for this new Star Wars film and ever since the prequels, I have lost interest in this franchise but, something interesting happened today. Most of the reviews for this film have been mixed, while most of the fans are disgusted. This made me think, why would they spend millions of dollars to put out a film that they know is not going to do well? While some people are screaming that is this new social justice campaign, I thought it had to be more to it.  Here it was the last Terminator bombed and now it looks like this film will too, which made me see that whoever is backing these films don’t care about the money. So, it is not about money.

Then, I came across a review which led me to a report called What Research Says: Gender Typed Toys (link appears below). 

I remember the last time my brother and I played with Star Wars action figures, it was when the Empire Strikes Back came out. We had the snow beast and ironically we played with the masked characters like Darth Vader, the Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Yoda but not Luke or Han Solo.

Now, when I think back on it now,  Star Wars was just for boys because back in the day, that was the targeted audience. Period. So, when they created these characters, they had very distinctive attributes for boys to pick. There were only a few female characters in the original franchise so no one really wanted to play with these characters.  

So, when I look back at it now, I noticed was that the reason we only played with those figurines was that “psychologically” these were the characters that we identified with. Understand, the first reason we did not identify with them was that Black people were not represented.  When Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams character) appeared in Star Wars, my brother and I did not want to be him because he betrayed the good guy to save his butt. In fact, sad to say Lando Calrissian was sort of like Winston in Ghostbusters, a token comic relief character that most Black boys didn’t like either.  It wasn’t until it was recognized that people liked these token character, that they began to develop more of a storyline for Lando and Winston in the sequels.

Interesting, most blonde and red boys identified with Luke, while dark-haired boys like Han Solo.  For the record, I am not saying that this was the case all the time but it seemed to be the norm. 

The second reason we liked Darth Vader, the Stormtroopers, Bobba Fett, Chewbacca, Yoda, etc. was because these were all male characters with distinct abilities that allowed them to control their fate.  For instance, never mind that Bobba Fett was considered a villain, he was respected by even the most feared villain, Darth Vader. That’s how boys think.

Girls and women do not think this way according to the Gender Typed Report.  Girls and women associate with things based upon attractiveness and appearance.  In other words, whereas boys choose toys based upon their aggressiveness and combativeness. Girls choose toys based upon how they want to look, which carries on into adulthood. The interesting thing, the study found that moderately masculine toys help to develop in boys and girls “building, spatial and science skills”  while moderately feminine toys develop “nurturance and domestic skills”.

This brings me to the character Rey. As everyone has indicated, she is incredibly powerful with no freakin’ training, which is what is called a Mary Sue. But, when I looked deeper, I noticed something. There is no character development for this Rey character. We are supposed to just accept her as she is…Let me say that again.  We are supposed to accept her as she is…Did you get it?

That’s right ladies and gentlemen. First, this Rey character was created for girls and women to buy into this franchise.  For three movies, we have been looking at the same desert looking girl with the perfect skin tone, perfect teeth, perfect muscles, wielding a lightsaber perfectly because she is a ritualized attempt to reestablish that this particular female is the epitome of strength and beauty. Yes, we are looking at the new and revised TRADEMARK.

Like any good trademark, it has to be the same logo repeated over and over again. Think about it, how many times have you seen Coca Cola, McDonald’s, etc. change their logo?  How many times have you seen this Rey character change her outfit?

So, why are “they” promoting this trademark?

To encourage women to get into the only “Force” traditions they can. Witchcraft. It is a rallying call to get into European (the Rey actress is British) witchcraft.

Now, you might be asking, “What’s wrong with that?” Well, it is that all other traditions especially African traditions that are demonized.  Most of the time, African traditions are portrayed as evil and wicked practices because we understand that Truth is subjective. Meaning what is right for one may not be right for another, which is the reason our enslaved ancestors conjured spirits to cursed plantation crops, to kill slave owners, or revolt against an entire corrupted system as was the case in Haiti. While, European traditions are depicted as having a bad or good witch who is typically loving, fun and powerful traditions as in the case of Charmed, Practical Magic, Bewitch,  Witches of Eastwick, Hansel and Gretel, The Wizard of Oz, and so on.  

Remember, movies are just modified ritual used to program certain behaviors in the general public.  So, if you don’t like the movies remember that it was not made for you.  

Anyway, that’s my thoughts. Feel free to leave a comment if you agree or disagree.

How Are Truly Spiritual People Supposed to Live

27 11 2019

left-human-hand-photo-3025562

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Obi Wan Kenobi talking to Luke

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

Jedi Counsel

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kemetic Spirituality and the Illuminati

13 10 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

The other day I happened to be clicking through the channels and I saw that Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut was coming on, which made me reflect back on how I really got interested in the occult. 

The movie is basically  a psychological erotic mystery drama about a New York doctor, played by Tom Cruise, who stumbles across a clandestine orgiastic group after hearing that his wife fantasized about having an affair. 

I am not going to tell you about the whole movie but there were a couple of parts in the movie that stood out. In the film after Cruise’s character takes a taxi (of all rides) to an upstate mansion where the event is taking place. He finds that everyone in attendance is wearing a mask and is robed, except for several women who are masked and walk around naked. When Cruise’s character is exposed, he is forced to unmasked so that all of the masked attendants can see his face.  After doing so, the masked host (who is sporting a red gown) is about to issue a decree for Cruise’s character to be killed judging from the cadence. Until one of the naked masked women pleads for him not to be punished and sacrifices herself for him. After it is decided that the group will accept her sacrifice, they issue a warning to the doctor to forget what he has seen or he will be punished since they all know who he is. Then, he is forced to leave but of course, he can’t unsee what he saw and attempts to harass the people who hosted the event. It isn’t until he identifies the body of a former beauty queen whom he had saved previously from overdosing, that he realizes that this was the lady who sacrificed herself for him.  Then, when the doctor pays one of his wealthy clients a visit who reveals that he was one of the masked attendees. That’s when the doctor realizes how powerful this group was and decides to adhere to their warnings. 

Now as you know, a movie is just not a movie. Most movies have a deeper meaning to them and if you ever seen Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange or The Shining, then you know he does not put scenes in a film arbitrarily.  The other interesting thing is that Kubrick died six days after the final cut of Eyes Wide Shut.

While some people want to claim that the movie is about the illuminati and that there are a lot of bizarre scenes in this film for any theorist to use as evidence.  What I saw in this movie was a host of ritualistic practices that were meant to discourage people from exploring the occult. 

It made me think of how we are told not to do something because it is evil while others are encouraged to do it. For instance, on the surface Christians condemn people for communicating with their ancestors yet call their mock spiritualist practice receiving the Holy Ghost.  While completely ignoring the fact that Jesus talked to his ancestor Moses and Elijah (Matthew 17:2).

Why is this so important yet discouraged and conducted in secret?  It is because there is only One Divine Being or Consciousness which exists in all of us and everything. We all are connected to the Divine and therefore have access to the Supreme Being. When human beings were created, we were all given a soul, which gives us free will to choose and makes decisions. Therefore, we can all choose to improve our life by simply accessing the Divine from within through (drumroll please) our Ancestors. But, if you do not know that you are a Divine Being who is connected to the Divine, then you are forced to accept your fate as a powerless human being. 

To get an idea of what I am talking about, imagine the Divine is a giant public library. We can all go to this library and learn whatever we want. We just need a library card (our ancestors). Well, what I am telling you is that there is a small group that does not want you to have a library card to the Library of Divine Consciousness.  Understand, while theorists may believe that these individuals are all powerful. The truth of the matter is that they are only powerful as you believe they are because this small group cannot deny you from getting your divine access.  They can only trick, discourage and coax you into believing you do not your Divine library card, which is accessible through your ancestors. They can even convince you that they are so powerful that they are invincible but you have access just as much as they do.   

Why do they want to discourage you from venerating your Ancestors? Well, think about it. When we are all born, we incarnate into this life to our family, friends, society, etc. that will place upon us all types of erroneous beliefs. Consequently, most of us will have a host of anxieties, inhibitions, fears, etc. that will prevent us doing things that will connect us to our Divine nature. For instance, we will say based upon our conditionings that “I cannot heal myself. I cannot have a successful career. I cannot make money. I cannot have a prosperous relationship” and so on. And, this is only because you subconsciously have learned (or been programmed) that you are a human, which is limited. But, if you switch to your Higher Self you can access the consciousness or spirits of individuals who can show you how to have all of these things and more. This is because contrary to popular belief, when an individual dies it is their body that ceases to exist not their spirit. This means that everything that have learned and know continues to exist. As a spirit they simply do not have a body but by evoking/invoking them you give them a vehicle to work through.  So what does this mean?  It means you do not have to reinvent the wheel. 

Yes. If you are having problems with your marriage. You can evoke/invoke an ancestor who had a good marriage and have them teach you how to improve your marriage. You can evoke/invoke an ancestor to teach you anything, which is what was alluded to in the Matrix when Trinity asks the Operator for a helicopter program.

I hear you…what if you want to know something from an individual who was not of your family lineage? Answer. We are all part of the Divine, which means even though someone may not be a direct biological relative. They are a Divine relative, hence the term spirit guides or aakhu.  In fact, anyone who has ever taken an Asian martial arts class or watched Karate Kid knows that it is etiquette.  To bow before entering the dojo, bow towards the teachers’ teacher and lastly bow to the teacher. Why? So that the teacher’s ancestors can assist you in learning that martial art as well. The teacher’s deceased teacher just became your spirit guide.  

Does it now make sense why Jesus was communicating with his ancestors? Do you understand now how the Kemetic society was able to progress in such a relatively short time? Does it make sense why you are discouraged from learning how to venerate your ancestors, meditate, conduct ritual work, etc.? Does it make sense why Haiti, the only nation of ex-slaves to successfully revolt and free itself from colonialism is the poorest nation in the Western hemisphere? Does it make sense why African-based religions are demonized and why there is an active campaign occurring throughout the Caribbean and Latin America to Pentecostalize people?  Does it make sense why they make horror moves discouraging you from talking to spirits?  Does it now make sense why you are encouraged to focus so much on racism and other forms of injustice in these recent years? 

I hope you see that all of this is a diversion to keep you believing that you are a human and powerless, so that you have to reinvent the wheel.  But, if you remember that you are a Divine Being, then you can change your reality by tapping into the ancestral wisdom that is available to us all.

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

10 09 2019

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Never Forget

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hope that helps.
