Why They Don’t Want You to Honor Your Ancestors

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1 07 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Establishing Your Personal Maa

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

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

1) Choose a Legend

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

13 10 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

“Why is this happening to me?”

“What did I do wrong?”

“What did I do to deserve this?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How Did We Go Wrong? 

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

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

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

Copyright: Sony film Men In Black

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hetepu.

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





Which Kemetic Crown Do You Wear? (What Spiritual Path Are You On?)

17 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

You know, ever since the 1999 blockbuster film The Matrix came out, there has been more references to this movie then a little bit, and for good reason. The Matrix was heavily coated with all sorts of metaphors and symbolism, which is the reason so many people loved it but something else happened after that film was made. As we moved deeper into this Age of Information, there has been an overload of information. People suddenly began to realize that we were all living in a matrix (system of control), which has prompted discussions on what to do about it and how to get out of the matrix.

There are all these theories of how to get out of the matrix but the message gets muddled because there is too much information. There are a lot of people out there spreading “good news” but some of this information is not meant for all of us. That’s right. Information is great but a lot of times too much information causes problems as well because it stimulates the ego-self (sahu part of our being)-particularly the intellect. I remember that when I first started this walk (in this lifetime), I used to feel so overwhelmed until I discovered from a shamanic perspective how to chart my spiritual path.

After I charted my spiritual path, that is when I realized that it is not meant for everyone to get out of the matrix like the Kemetic ruler King Mentuhetep II (shown on the left). Some of us came here to fight. Some of us came here to build. Some of us come here to learn.  Some of us have come here to become living gods and goddesses.  While some of us came here to be sheep, which is the reason I stop wasting time and energy trying to convince people that don’t want to know and protesting a long time ago.  To understand this, you must understand your purpose of being here or said another way, “Why did you choose to incarnate to this plane?”  Remember, we are not physical beings that were created out of happenstance.  We were not created by accident or through some random and coincidental events.  We must remember that we are spiritual beings (BA-Superconscious) with a soul (Ab/conscious), having a physical experience (sahu subconscious).

Thanks to our Kemetic ancestors, we know that according to the Kemetic creation theory that in the beginning there was Nyun (nothing or no-things) although Amun Ra was always present.  Then, the Divine said (paraphrasing) “I called myself into being. Finding no place to stand, I brought Maa out of the Nyun.” Thence, according to our Bantu-Kongo ancestors, the Divine as Amun Ra (Musoni) made Ra (Tukula), Khepera (Kala) and Ra Atum (Luvemba).  This means You – Family – are the Divine Conscious that brought yourself into being.  Each and every one of us chose to be here and we brought ourselves into being through our Father’s Will/Ra and Mother’s Nyun womb.

Therefore, these three parts of our being (BA, Ab and sahu), which are symbolized on the Maa Aankh, means we are a microcosm within a Macrocosm, a maa aankh within a greater Maa Aankh or simply put a god and goddess.  We all chose to come to this physical plane of existence for a reason. Most of us came here to prove our divinity. Some of us chose to come here so that we can be like the hero Neo in The Matrix and use our divine powers to manipulate this matrix we are in. While others of us are just here for the ride.

Why are we here and how do we interact with the matrix is based upon the spiritual path we have chosen prior to coming to this plane.  The spiritual path we have chosen can be identified by the Kemetic crowns which also corresponds to part of our spirit/self that we are polarized with the most.

The Crowns of Kemet does not simply signify the region but also indicates the part of the Spirit that the wearer is polarized. This is the inspiration behind Catholic popes choosing a name.

The White Hedjet crown is polarized with the BA/Higher Self/KAMTA. The Red Deshret crown is polarized with the sahu/lower self/TASETT, and the White and Red Pschent Crown is balanced. What are the spiritual paths?

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

Well, if it sounds horribly strange that we are gods and goddesses or just downright blasphemous.  You may on the Red Deshret path, which means that you are not getting out of the matrix because you are dependent on it. You believe that the way to change what is wrong with the system is by protesting and/or revolting so that you can replace the current system with another system. For instance, you may detest capitalism and democracy but you favor socialism and communism. You are here to understand that you cannot depend upon anything externally.

KAMTA – the Upper Kemet/ Higher (Upper) Self/ Superconscious – BA part of our being.  KAMTA also represents the BA, KHU, SHEKHEM & REN Divisions of the Spirit.

If this sounds a little farfetched but makes sense. You are probably on the White Hedjet path and you are most likely here to use your divine powers to create change. You have most likely participated in several protests and saw no real change, which has led you to see that the only way to create change is by having your own power. Those of you on the white Hedjet path come here to use your powers to improve the wellbeing of your family, community and race.  You may have a strong connection to your ancestors. and a keen understanding of history.  You have learned not to depend upon anything externally and are experimenting with the whole process of going within.

If this sounds perfectly correct. You are on the White and Red Pschent path and most likely here to get out of the matrix. You have seen it all and done it all in past lives, and now you see that everything has its pros and cons. You don’t care either way if you are in a capitalist society or a communist society because your objective is to use your powers to manipulate the matrix. You are on the path to become a netcharu (netjeru, force of nature, guardian spirit, etc.) who does not need to reincarnate back into this physical plane. Your sole purpose is to master both planes of existence as the hero Hru had accomplished, hence the significance of the white and red Pschent crown.

Please note that this is not by any means meant to determine an individuals’ spiritual maturity per se.  It is meant to help you to understand the spiritual path that you have chosen so that you can better focus and understand the messages, omens, synchronistic events, etc. coming to you and how to best use the information you are receiving.

Akhenaten Is Not a Kemetic Hero

13 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

This Setian society is so interestingly flawed that it is ridiculous. What do I mean? Well, if you look at any documentary about the Kemetic civilization, it will always be the same. First, they talk about the pyramids, then they talk about how the Kemetic people were fascinated with death and then, they come with the same old thing about them worshipping false gods and goddesses, until Akhenaten (former Amenhetep IV 1348/1346 BC), the so-called father of monotheism, steps on the scene and introduces Atenism.

Akhenaten and Family worshipping Aten

Now, for the longest time, I have tried my best to understand what was the big deal about Akhenaten? In fact, when I was younger, after learning that the 42 Declarations of Maa were the model for the Ten Commandments, I tried to become a follower of Atenism. The big draw was that it was theorized by a lot of western scholars that Akhenaten and Moses was the same person, so I felt like I was really returning to Christianity before it became corrupted by the Council of Nicea.

But after a little more investigation, I learned that Atenism focused only the salvation of Akhenaten and his royal family.  In fact, so-called idols were banned in the Kemetic homes during Akhenaten’s reign, but the people could have representations of Akhenaten’s family worshipping Aten.  Another unmentioned fact is that while Akhenaten was busy obsessing and promoting his religion, his enemies were gathering on the Kemetic horizon to invade.  There were other forms of neglect that were occurring during Akhenaten’s reign, which is the reason his religion declined and the Kemetic empire almost fell. It should be noted that it is never mentioned that Akhenaten’s wife Nefertiti was an Assyrian princess, who made have inspired this decline.

But, if you listen to archeologists, historians and even filmmakers, they will try to convince you that the Kemetic people were so stuck in their “pagan ways” that this was the reason they never fully converted to Atenism.

So, prior to Akhenaten being born, the Kemetic people were stuck in their “pagan ways” and they built the Pyramid of Djoser (2630 BC-2611 BC) and numerous other pyramids, the Kemetic medical papyrus were written 3000 BC-2500 BC, not mention chemistry and all of the other sciences.  Yet, scholars parade over the fact that this one individual promoted an idea of worshipping the Aten, the sun, which almost led to the Kemetic empire being destroyed.

Then, it hit me.

The reason western scholars are so giddy about Akhenaten is because this was the first individual recorded in history to promote the idea of worshipping a deity outside of our being. Notice that I did not say, the first person to create monotheism because the Kemetic religion was always monotheistic. Amun Ra which means the “Hidden Ra” as I mentioned before refers to the Hidden Force of God within our Being. In fact, in ancient times, most of the people around the globe worshipped God within. This all changed after Atenism came into the picture because immediately afterwards the western world religions were created and everyone in the world was seduced into worshipping a cosmic deity outside of the Self.

In other words, Akhenaten’s Aten religion became the model that was used to weaponize religion.This is the reason as soon as Constantine came to power after suppressing all other Christian factions (and other religions by claiming they were evil or against God), they built churches on top of most of sacred spots.  Islam took simply destroyed most of these sacred spots. All three religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) promoted their “peaceful” religions with a holy book in one hand and a sword in the other.

Remember, usually when they tell us something is good in this western society, it is usually bad and vice versa. The world at large is going to hell because of this horrific paradigm shift to worship a deity outside of our being. The only way to escape it, is to follow our Kemetic ancestors’ lead. When the Kemetic people realized that Akhenaten had been overthrown by his Set (the ego self). They erased all memory of him and restored the Amun Ra religion through his son Tutankmen. In other words, the only way to escape this foolishness is by returning to worshipping the Power of God within our being.

Remembering Haiti and the Real Revolution

10 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about Haiti because it was recently realized by a select few within our community that Haiti was the second republic to win her independence after the United States.  I first became interested in Haiti and the Vodun religion after reading Jacob Carruther’s The Irritated Genie, in around 1993.  From what I could attest, the reason Haiti won her independence was because in 1791, Boukman Dutty followed by Jacques Dessalines tapped into the power of God within them, who sent the Vodun loa of war, Ogu.  When the spirit of Ogu arrived, he mobilized and motivated the freedom fighters by teaching them a guerrilla tactic which, led to them defeating every western nation that attempted to return the people back to slavery.

What most people do not know about our beloved Haiti is that after her independence was won, many of her citizens implemented a similar chattel system in order to reestablish her foothold in the sugar production market.  In other words, they removed one horrific system and replaced it with another, and this has been going on since her inception. Today, the entire island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic) suffers from extreme forms of colorism and racism, which was created and erected by the French and Spanish.  Yes, the European countries and United States have all had a hand in Haiti’s demise but the real reason Haiti has had all of the problems she has had is because she has the same illness we all have.  That is, the lack of spiritual development.

Haiti is living proof that none of the systems Europeans created will save us. Democracy, socialism, communism, etc. do not work and will not work because they are systems based upon man and woman’s lower self. The lower self you will remember basis everything that we do upon our limited personal past experiences. The lower self is also the part of our being that focuses on differences rather than similarities. The reason the Haitians reverted back to their enslaved way of thinking after the revolution was because this was the only system they knew of and were familiar with based upon their personal experience.  It was also the only system that categorize peoples’ self-worth and importance based upon the hue of their skin.  It was the only system they believed could work, which we know now failed them miserably.

The point of making this known is because many of us are traveling down this same rickety road created by our lower self. As a result, there is an erroneous theory circulating that if people somehow toppled the elite 1% that is controlling the world, that things will change. These same people believe that all we need to do is boycott, march, pray, have sit-ins, etc. and people will somehow have an epiphany and decide to do what is right and just.  Anyone who believes this does not understand basic human psychology. If it were that simple and easy to change peoples’ egotistical behavior then, we would all be cured of our destructive and negative habits through wishful thinking. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. The only way for people to change their behaviors is by having their Higher Self imbue their lower self with knowledge, wisdom and power. In other words, it is by having their Higher Self direct and guide their lower self.

Remember, the Haitians defeated their enemies by having Ogou (the warrior aspect of their Higher Self) teach them guerrilla warfare.   Do you understand that? Do you know that when the Haitians defeated Napoleon Bonapart’s military that it bankrupted France, which resulted in the Louisiana Purchase? Do you know why you were not taught about this in history class? Does it make sense why traditional African  spirituality is demonized and the mere mention of Vodun, Ifa, Lukumi, Palo Mayombe, Abakua, Macuuba, Candomble, Obeah, Shango Baptiste, strikes fear in the hearts and minds of people? Yes, we are talking about REAL GOD POWER.

So, let me say it again. The HAITIANS not the freedman, not the enslaved, not the mulattoes, not the half-breed and all of these other stupid ass labels that Europeans have placed on us to keep us from coming together as a people.  No, the HAITIANS won their independence!  You see, when we stop seeing one another based upon our differences and focus on a common goal, the Spirit of God and our Ancestors will bring us together and this is when the real revolution begins.  This is what “they” don’t want you to know.

You may ask, how do we know it will work? It is because our ancestors along the Nile did it. Our Kemetic ancestors recognized the differences between other cultures but they understood that by focusing on it, it would cause further separation from the whole. Kemet became great because they created a national identity by focusing on the Higher Self or Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris). In other words, they were the first people to walk around calling one another God and actually creating a society based upon that ideology.

Think about that, you pass down the street and see guys ciphering for real by erecting an altar that honors all of our ancestors in the community. Could you imagine the impact that would make on peoples’ minds? Could you imagine that instead of honoring celebrities (no disrespect like Biggie, Pac, etc.) who have not done a damn thing for our community besides claiming they were from there, and instead honor our ancestors and make a commitment to do right by one another, how peoples’ minds and hearts would be uplifted?

We have to remember that the society we presently live in is sick. As a result, we all suffer from a type of psychosis that focuses only on what is tangible.  We all have a lopsided view of what we think reality is and is not. This lopsided view is what we call TASETT and it is governed by our jealous, high-strung, fear driven Ego called Set. The reason no new ideas are come into play is because it is not the lower self’s purpose to create new ideas. It’s purpose is to help us to physically survive even if that means depriving, exploiting and warring against others. It is a narrow minded view that animals use.

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

We can create change but, don’t be deluded into thinking that this will occur intellectually. That’s an egotistical ploy. The only way to create real change is by invoking our Higher Self or Osar. When we invoke our Higher Self or Osar, we are able to see the other side of the physical reality or the spiritual realm which is unlimited.

We have to tap into our Higher Self in order to make this happen. Only the Higher Self will give us a radical idea that will create change we need.  Only our Higher Self will allow us to see the God within all of us and this is what spiritual development is about.  We have to see one another based upon our potential not our past.  If we use the same thinking that westerners have used to create the problems we are in, we will get nowhere because as the old adage goes, “You cannot solve a problem using the same thinking that created it.”

The only way to solve the problems we face is by using intuitive thinking by tapping into our Higher Self or Osar because the real battle is not won through brawn but through the mind.

Now, I know what you are thinking. This is that ole’ spooky spiritual crap but here’s the thing. I am not trying to tell you about a mystery God in the sky. No. I am trying to tell you that you are the mystery and the only reason you will not awaken yourself is because your lower self or Set got you shook and afraid to do so. Well, the time has come that if you want to be a revolutionary, then be a real revolutionary by letting your Higher Self show you how to defeat your enemy. How many failed systems and tactics do we have to try in order to realize that it is not going to work because it is not inclusive of us. We got to wake up family and realize that we have to fight differently.

The world is full of fools with guns.  What the world is lacking is men and women with intelligence.

What I learned from Haiti is that the real revolution is all about revolutionizing your thinking. If a person does not change their thinking, it does not matter how many coup d’etats they have. They are simply replacing one system with the same system. The faster we understand this the quicker our revolution will be won.

What “They” Will Not Tell You About Being Conscious

9 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

There is a lot of confusion about what Kemetic spirituality is because there are a lot of people claiming to be conscious and “woke.”  But, they do not have an idea what the concept means.  A lot of these people are “playing spiritual” and are simply riding the “conscious” bandwagon because it is the “in” thing.  So, let me explain what it really means to be spiritual for the truth seeker.

We are told in this western society that the only reality that exist and is worth mentioning is the physical realm.  As a result, we are educated, taught, trained, etc. to assess, evaluate and measure everything that we encounter based upon our five physical senses. Everything and everyone we meet, we are told to judge them based upon what we see and hear. This approach to life is what is known as Cartesian logic and it is because of this approach, most of us are prone to believe only what we can see and touch.

The problem with this approach is that this western way of thinking it is limited because our universe is not just composed of a physical reality.  Every other non-western culture knows and understands this.  If you pick up a book on feng shui, the first thing the Chinese authors talk about is how the western viewpoint is warped.  If you pick up a book on Hinduism they will say the same thing because there is a spiritual reality that exists as well, which is hidden to our awareness.  The thing we have to understand is that everything that we physically see did not just come into existence.  It manifested itself out of the invisible spiritual reality.  Therefore, we truly “conscious” people believe that the invisible spiritual reality is stronger than the physical reality and this is why we believe we can change our physical environment.  If you do not understand this or know this, you are not being spiritual.

The whole idea of being spiritual is that we know that everything that physically exists is temporary and an illusion. This is why my ancestors told me that the physical realm is TASETT – the Red Lands which is a symbol of a desert because deserts have all sorts of mirages of oasis.  This means regardless of where you were born, what you have done, who your parents are, what side of the town you come from, etc. none of this defines who you are.  ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE.

Let me give you an example of what I mean. Some of you have heard my testimony but I have to tell you so that you understand the gravity of the situation. Several years ago, my body was diagnosed with lupus. I remember when the specialist told me that it was lupus, the only thing I could think of was how my fellow Detroiter, J-Dilla, passed away from lupus complications. When I did some research on the ill-ness, I noticed that some people after being diagnosed had all sorts of complications, while others drove this ill-ness into complete remission. This made me think about my Mom and how she overcame cancer. When I asked my Mom how she beat the cancer, she told me that she basically had a talk with God and said that she had too much going on to leave. She said, “I told God, I need you to take this away” and shortly after it was gone.

What my mother did was tap into the spiritual realm and changed her physical reality, which is the same exact thing I did to improve my physical health. I did not rely upon what the doctors told me. I fixed in my mind what I wanted and made it a physical reality. Before this incident, I used to talk being spiritual but after I underwent my experience, I understood and became spiritual. You see, I had to learn the hard way that being consciousness is not about how many books you have read or how many books you got in your library.  But, when the sh*t hits the fan, none of this really matters. I know that our Ancestors are real because I talked to mine and this is how I know it is all about your MIND, which is the Creator’s greatest invention.

The funny thing is that I always have people ask if it was hard? My answer to them is yes, but they are surprised when I tell them that the hardest part was battling my lower self. You see, there were all sorts of negative and depressing ideas and thoughts that were trying to discourage my healing. I cannot even begin to tell you about all of the doubting thoughts that came to my mind and worse yet, the doubting and negative thoughts and energies that came from other people. Some of these negative energies were intentional but most were unintentional negative vibes that did not want me to recover. It was a serious battle but I managed to look pass the illusions and this is how I began to perceive the spiritual reality.  As I mentally fought these negative thoughts and energies, that is when I discovered that there is a spiritual realm for myself. Then, through my ancestors I discovered the Maa Aankh and learned that the physical realm corresponds to the subconscious part of our being, hence TASETT.

Maa Aankh

The purpose of our lower self or subconscious is to help us to physically survive by recording our personal experience in our memories. It is because of our lower self or subconscious, we do not put our hands into a fire because it reminds us that if we do we will burn ourselves. But, when the subconscious gets stuck with an idea or thought and refuses to change, that is when things become disastrous. For instance, imagine being afraid of fire after touching it.  As you could imagine, you would never cook your food, warm your house, warm yourself, etc. because of your fear that fire burns.

This perspective is totally dangerous because just like the physical realm, our subconscious is lopsided and does not see the complete view of the whole.  Our subconscious only can give us limited ideas from our personal experiences.  In other words, if you have never personally experienced something then you cannot comment on it.  We got a lot of people claiming they are spiritual gurus but all they have done is read a bunch of books.  A lot of these people do not even know what cosmologics is because if they did, they would not be worried about what the president does and giving into all of their fears. If you claim that the Supreme Being is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent then, you should know that we’re going to be Alright! All we have to do is seek a solution to our problems from within.  In other words, if an individual is truly about being spiritual, it will reflect in their life.  For the record, I have had my share of following fakes, which is why I am trying to get us to stop giving our power away and expecting people to save us.  Instead focus on saving our self!

This is the reason our Nilotic ancestors called it Set, which was later modified to Set-an and finally Satan.  Today, most of the world population is controlled by Set who gives us a lopsided view about family, relationships, money, health, education, government, religion, etc.  This is the reason there are so many contradictions that can be found in our health system. It is this same lopsided view, which is the reason all of these medications have adverse reactions and side effects. Relationship problems, such as high divorce rates and the attack on the nuclear family, are all due to this lopsided view given to us by Set, who is none other than our Ego.

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

Does it make sense why all of the violence we see occurring across the country in the school, public spaces, on the Internet, etc. are the ego amped up on 10. I mean have you ever seen so many people just go plum crazy and going berserk over the stupidest things? Have you ever seen so many people full of anger, rage, envy, etc.? It is all because we are all focused on one perspective or seeing the world from this lopsided view. We see only one side of the picture, which is the reason this realm is called TASETT – the Red Lands.  In the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris), this is metaphorized as Hru (Heru, Horus) battling Set and the conflict consistently ending in a stalemate because Hru’s eye was damaged.

So, we’re all living in the last days because we are controlled by our Ego, lower self or Set.  We will never find true peace, true prosperity, true happiness, etc. because no one in this lifetime has ever experienced it and since no one has any personal memories on how to get it. It is a pipe dream.  This is the reason most religious people thrive on devastation and will tell you that we are doomed.  But understand, this is only because these people are affected by Set too and can only see one of the whole picture as well.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The truth is that we are not in the last days  and here’s where being conscious and spiritual comes into play. We all have a Higher Self and this part of our being is connected to the spiritual realm. Remember, the spiritual is more powerful than the physical, well within our being our Higher Self is more powerful than our lower self. In other words, our Higher Self, which the Kemetic ancestors called Osar trumps Set, but Osar cannot do it alone.

You must consciously and willingly call upon your Higher Self or Osar and when you do your Osar will intervene. This can be accomplished through divination, meditation and rituals. When you perform divination, meditation and rituals, you get to see the other side of reality. You see that things do not just happen. Accidents don’t just occur. Life is not full coincidences. These are all silly things that people say because they have a lopsided view influenced by Set.  If you saw the whole picture, the whole scheme of things, you will know that our world is governed by Cause and Effects. Whenever we see something “suddenly” happen, we are only seeing the Effect and not the Cause.

Divination, meditation and rituals can help you navigate through life. There is no need for Black Lives Matter or to protest when you see the whole picture because when you  inject your Osar into the situation, you can hit the enemy where it hurts. But, as long as we continue to use this lopsided view to solve a lopsided problem, we will continue to get these same half-ass results, like Hru did when he fought Set.
