Why Is the Het Aakhu (Ancestor Altar) So Important in Kemetic Spirituality

14 05 2020

Het Aakhu (Boveda Espiritual/Ancestor & Spirit Guide Altar)

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

A thought-form is a mental and emotional energy that has taken a form and is believed to be floating around us. Whenever we experience a traumatic or emotional upheaval, or even when we engage in pessimistic thinking over a period of time. A thought-form is created and becomes our mental and emotional “baggage” of our past.


Osar (Osiris) is honored as the first Honorable Ancestor and therefore,
Lord of the Underworld (KAMTA).

Due to slavery, our people lost the rituals to create a positive thought-form about who and what they are because most of our rituals were regarded as superstition. Consequently, countless destructive thought-forms are running amuck and destroying peoples’ lives in our community because they do not have an uplifting and empowering thought-form about themselves. Many of us don’t recognize it but we function totally out of an inferiority complex due to the loss of this cultural theology. Today, most people who have suffered some form of trauma in their life have simply created a thought-form for him or herself based upon their egotistical limitations so that they will not be harmed. We never dealt with the affliction that was done to our soul, which eventually affects every area of our life. However, this can all be flipped through honoring your ancestors and spirit guides or aakhu.

The het aakhu called a boveda espiritual in the Afro-Caribbean Spiritist traditions is a unique altar that honors your ancestors and spirit guides, but it does something more.  It helps to create an empowering and uplifting thought-form for yourself because it is a reflection of you.

All of the photos of your ancestors and other icons on or around this altar are a reflection of you. You need to understand that everything you see on your ancestor altar is a symbolic representation of what exists in your soul.

The spiritual significance behind honoring your aakhu is that by performing outer ritualistic acts, an inner change will be created within yourself.

So the next time you sit or stand before your ancestor altar, don’t think of it as just being a sacred space with photos of your deceased loved ones.  Instead see it as being a tool of empowerment that reflects all of the qualities you possess such as courage, ingenuity, power, strength, and prosperity. This means that if the altar is a reflection of you, if your altar is empowering and uplifting, then you will tend to be empowering and uplifting. If your ancestors on the altar are prospering, then you will tend to prosper as well because the altar illustrates what you possess, and so on.

Remember, your ancestors are your first line of defense and your first line of good luck. So, make sure that you honor them on the regular.

If African Spirituality Was So Powerful, Why Were They Enslaved and Conquered?

8 02 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

If you are new to African spirituality or an old head, you will eventually come face to face with this elephant that not many people would like to discuss and it is. “If African spirituality was so powerful, then why were the Africans enslaved and conquered?”

Moorish enslavers enslaved other Africans based on cultural and religious differences

Another question related to this is “Why was the African continent invaded and numerous countries conquered by less spiritually powerful invaders?”

Well, I believe it was because of three reasons and I look forward to hearing your comments on if you agree or disagree. Before I give my reasons I let me say that I have been on this path off and on for a while. For the record, this does not give authority or more credence than others. I am simply putting it out there for those who need to know that I have been around the spiritual block several times.

So, if African spirituality was so powerful, why were they enslaved and conquered? Well, as I mentioned, I have three reasons why.

First, I don’t think that African spirituality was that powerful and for that matter. I don’t think there is one spiritual system that is all-powerful. One of the greatest myths that many people have when they start dabbling and getting into spiritual culture is that they believe. That when they become spiritual they will be all-powerful. They will be able to walk on water. Float above the ground while meditating. Talk to clouds and make it rain for a specific period because “we are gods and goddesses.”

This myth is so powerful that it makes us look at spiritual traditions as if they are storefronts at a mall. So we choose to follow one spiritual tradition because it promises to make us wealthy, or we leave one tradition because they did not fulfill their promise based upon what we believed to make us healthy, powerful, or whatever instant gratification goal we desire.

The facts are that all spiritual systems are essentially the same. If you don’t see this it probably because you are still suffering from the religious dogma that programmed you to believe that only Baptists are going to heaven, or Jehovah witnesses are right, etc. So, let me say it again, all spiritual traditions are essentially the same. The major difference between all spiritual traditions is the culture and language that hosts the tradition.

No spiritual tradition is perfect, which is why historically you can find flaws in every cultural society that hosted them. For instance, with all of the wisdom that has flowed out of China due to Taoism and Kung Fu Tze (Confucius) you would think China would be a spiritually enlightened mecca but China oppresses her citizens, women are very suppressed, the labor laws are horrific and their environment is a cesspool. So much for an enlightened China or not? So, the first reason the Africans were enslaved and conquered despite having a powerful spiritual system is that people have to implement it.

This brings me to the second point but forces me to ask this question before giving my response. The question is with all of this great and powerful wisdom that has come out of China in the past 30 to 50 years, why does China have the problems she has? The answer is because people still have free will to do whatever they want. As a matter of fact, when China was undergoing its cultural revolution and being influenced by Westerners. Most of China’s wisdom and spiritual traditions were seen as superstitious nonsense. In fact, most of the Chinese spiritual practices and traditions that we appreciate in the West such as feng shui, qi gong, I Ching, etc. are considered folk practices in China. Need proof? Watch the Ip Man series on Netflix, which reveals that one of the reasons he became a legend is because he was trying to preserve the Chinese culture amid Western influence (Regardless of how factual the story is it is a familiar theme). Now, does that sound familiar? Understand, that the only reason most of these practices are tolerated is that so many people practice it. By the way, Cuba went through a similar transition but now the African religions that have survived are celebrated as a part of Cuban culture. Again, people who do not understand this will try to create a schism between the two.

Now, I say all of this to say that this is what Africa suffered from when the Arabs and Europeans were welcomed to their lands. It is a classic case of being enamored by another culture to the point that you view your own culture as inferior. When the Portuguese arrived on the shores of the Kongo Kingdom, the Kongo rulers experienced a technology gap where they were so fascinated by the Europeans arsenal and culture that they willingly converted to Christianity.

Let me say it again because there’s this myth that all Africans were forced into slavery. Many of the Kongo people willingly converted to Christianity because it was not the same trick bag that was used over in the States to justify slavery. So, reason number 2 as to why the Africans were enslaved if their spiritual systems are so powerful is that they started seeing other peoples’ spiritual systems as superior and their own as inferior.

Lastly, the final reason they were enslaved and conquered is that they had become too spiritual. When an individual is too spiritual they are no worldly good because they are focused on idealism and they ignore the physical reality or commonsense. This is because you are always looking at the best of an individual. For instance, the Divine exists in everyone and everything including rattlesnakes but would you pick up a rattlesnake without training? Would you let a stranger off the street sleep in your home? If you are too spiritual you would and you are opening yourself up for a great spiritual lesson but, if you got commonsense you better not. This is where people get ideas about Maa wrong and Maat says that if you have the means share. That means if someone asks for $10 and you can share it without missing it, by all means, share it. If it comes back great and it proves that the individual you shared it with is trustworthy but if not you will not miss it, no loss. This whole idea of giving your last dime because God is going to bless you is a warped western religious belief.

Being too spiritual is a sin like being materialistic. If you have read the Story of Osar, the reason Osar was murdered by his youngest brother is that he was too spiritual. For those interested in Kemetic history, the reason Ankhenaten disappeared is that he was too spiritual and it almost resulted in Kemet being conquered by the Assyrians had the Amun Ra priesthood not stepped in. We must remember that to the Kemetic people righteousness is being Maa, hence balance, orderly, truthful which is symbolized as Hru wearing the double crown.

Osar (Osiris) symbolizes the white crown of KAMTA (Spiritual Realm). Set represents the red crown in TASETT (Physical Realm). Therefore, Hru wearing the white and red crown symbolizes a balance between the spiritual and physical realities.

A fact that a lot of people do not want to accept is that the reason African religions were not able to survive in North America was that they were too spiritual and not aggressive enough. This is the reason the Ifa religion had to evolve and become Lucumi in Cuba, Umbanda in Brazil, and why the Kongo tradition had to become Palo in Cuba and Qibanda in Brazil, and so on. All of which became Conjure and Rootwork in North America.

So, the final reason they were enslaved and conquered is that they had become too spiritual, which convinced them to see their enemies as friends.

Now, these are all very important points that we need to be aware of because there are many among us now trying to convince us that the power, wealth, etc. that we need comes from an herb, stone, crystal, bone, or some other outside source. These individuals have simply change the names and superimposed their western religious beliefs on to African-style names.

The Divine power is within us. It is not in the tradition. It is not in the artifacts or relics, which are all tools used to convince you of your divinity.

Note that it is not about religion.  I have met some very powerful and spiritual Christians and Muslims because they understood that their religion was the path they had to take to join with their godhead. Whereas I have met people who state they are spiritual who have simply superimposed their old religious beliefs onto spiritual practices.

We have to understand that these are all paths.  If a particular path doesn’t work for you, then there is always self-initiation but don’t delude yourself. All the paths are about becoming one with the god/goddess within you. If you remember this you will not be hoodwinked like our ancestors were in the past.

The True Purpose of Kemetic Spirituality

8 02 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

It has come to my attention that we have all been duped into believing that Egyptian spiritual system better known as Kemetic Spirituality is about memorizing the 42 Declarations of Maat, performing rituals as the Kemetic people had done, working with gems and stones, practicing yoga/tai chi/ki gong, observing the zodiac and everything else that we have been told that the Kemetic people or spiritual people should do.

What is Kemetic Spirituality?

Kemetic farmers courtesy of Wikipedia.org

No. The Egyptian mystery systems, Egyptian spirituality, or Kemetic Spirituality is all about overcoming our ego, which is the reason the Kemetic people did not leave texts on how relationships, money, etc.  Everything was focused on overcoming the ego including their agriculture.

The reason most of us missed this very important point is that we have relied upon other’s interpretations of our ancestral’ ways. But, these individuals and/or groups interpreting our ancestral ways do not come from a spiritual culture so they really have no business interpreting it because they are spiritually ignorant themselves. Consequently, these individuals and groups have perverted the original purpose of these teachings and in a classic imperialistic mindset, they proclaim that only their interpretation is authentic, orthodox and everyone else’s is not.  When it is nothing more than a version based upon some bias Western scholar’s perspective.  This same attitude is the reason similar people interpreted the Christian bible literally, but when it is understood from a spiritual perspective. We see that it is nothing more than an instruction manual dealing with the ego. This is the purpose of the Ten Commandments and various references about “the kingdom of God being within.”

So let me be the one to set the record straight. All of the spiritual sciences and practices that have been discovered were all created to help us to do one thing.  Their role is to help us to overcome our ego. Yes, they may have some extraordinary physical benefits but don’t get tricked into believing that this is their primary purpose. For instance, meditation, yoga, tai chi, and Ki gong are all great spiritual practices that have documented benefits of the physical body but this is not why these practices were created. They were created to help you to gain mastery over your ego, as well as every other spiritual practice including the use of magick.

Why were all of these practices created to help us to overcome our ego, you ask?

It is because our ego or subconscious was created to help us to physically survive. One of the ways the subconscious works to help us to survive is by categorizing all of our experiences as either pleasant/pleasure or unpleasant/pain. It is a real rudimentary system that established all of our fears, anxieties, and worries so that we can physically survive. For instance, if something is too hot we feel pain so we remove our hand from a hot stove to feel pleasure. As a result, we normally categorize everything from this pleasure/pain perspective as either being good or bad/evil based upon how we feel.

The problem with this simple classification system is that it is flawed because everything that is good for us does not necessarily make us feel good, just like everything that is bad for us does not make us feel bad.

Proof of this flawed classification system is the consumption of drugs and illicit drugs. They might make us feel good for a short while but in the long run, they are not good for our bodies. There are other things that we can find from food to lifestyle choices that fit in this same category of making us feel good but not being good for us.

This is why it is said that we live in a world of illusions because we are chasing after things that we believe will give us pleasure or be good for us, but they will only provide us with a temporary high. And, in this instant gratification society that we live in, situations have become increasingly worse because people are unaware that the source of all of their problems stems from their subconscious ego-self, which is why the Kemetic sages called the ego, Set.

For instance, here are some of the lies that our Set tells us:

  1. I don’t need a man/woman. I can do it by myself.
  2. I don’t eat pork, drink alcohol, etc. because I am “woke” and people who do these things are not.
  3. When I have enough money, I will be happy.

Basically, any time you hear a little voice whispering in your ear things to protect you based upon your past experiences, suggestions to play it safe, suggestions that will not rattle the chain, anything that makes you feel as if you are better than others and feel content. You are listening to Set who is gassing you up for a great fall. In other words, any suggestions that make you feel fearful, anxious, selfish, worrisome, etc. based upon your past experience, is Set.

Set prevents us from seeing the whole picture by making us a prisoner of our own beliefs and past experiences. When we step out of our comfort zone and ignore the erroneous beliefs and our past experiences, then we can overcome Set.

So that we are clear, Set is the egotistical part of our being or our subconscious, hence lower self. Set is not some evil entity running around with the pitchfork like some devious imp. No. Set is the lower you and when you hear all of these heinous acts and crimes occurring all over the community, city, state, nation, and world. It is because these individuals have given into their Set, which has promised them that they will feel good about themselves if they engage in the erroneous belief or past act. These are people giving into their lower, animalistic, reptilian, and beastie self.

Understand. We all have a lowly nature but we can choose to listen to it or not, which is what makes us human beings. The voice that tells us to do the opposite of what we feel and to do what is right instead of what is easy, is our Superconscious or Osar (Osiris).

We must get into the habit of using meditation, meditative practices, prayer, magick, etc. as tools to limit the influence of our lower ego-self or Set, and invite our Higher Self or Osar (Osiris) into our life. For instance, if you choose to do a ritual to improve any aspect of your life. Note that it is based upon the understanding that you personally have limited experience in dealing with the matter. Therefore, you are handing it over to your Higher Self or Osar because you trust that it is more powerful, wiser, and is unlimited.

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.

What Does “Raise Your Vibration/Energy/Conscious” Mean?

9 12 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings)

If you are new to spiritual development/magick you will often hear people say “You have to raise your vibration” or “You need to vibe at a higher frequency.”  Often times, a lot of people (especially seasoned practitioners) who use this term expects everyone to know what this term means but this lingo typically loses a lot of people. So let me explain what this means.

First it must be understood that there are numerous spiritual/magickal systems that exist, which theorize how to spiritually grow and magickally evolve. The two most popular systems are the Tree of Life, which is based upon the belief that metaphysically we all have 12 spheres called sephiroth that correspond to different levels of consciousness.  The second most popular system is the energy system, which is based upon the belief that we all have seven psychic energy centers called chakras.  Now, I have to state a disclaimer so that this is not interpreted literally.  Disclaimer: Please understand that these are the two most popular systems that theorizes how to spiritually.  They are not the only truth.

Taoism & Huna

There are numerous other spiritual systems that exist because as long as man and woman have walked the earth.

Druid Rune System & Ifa Spiritual System

and http://www.runedruid.com/ https://www.pinterest.com/Fasotito/fasotito-memes/

They have pondered the mysteries of the Universe and the human spirit.  So there are numerous systems that exist such as the Druid system, the Yoruba Ifa system, the Huna system, Taoism, Kamta, etc.  This means whichever system you decide to follow, any of these systems will work.  Simply choose the one system that best fits your needs.

Returning to our subject matter at hand, both the sephiroth and the chakra system, along with all of the other spiritual systems correspond with each other because they are based upon universal truths regarding the nature of the human spirit. In other words, all spiritual systems focus on spiritual development through raising one’s consciousness/energy.  This is the reason it does not matter which system you choose, you cannot go wrong.

Therefore, when you hear people say “You have to raise your vibration” or “You need to vibe at a higher frequency.”  Typically they are speaking from a chakra perspective but the reference corresponds and overlaps with other systems, which is the reason most do not explain themselves when saying it.

So what does it mean to raise your vibration/consciousness?

First everyone has their own way of explaining this concept so I am going to explain it from a Kemetic shaman perspective.  To comprehend this you need to understand that there is no such thing as good and bad, or good and evil. There is only Energy, which has a positive and negative charge. In the Kemetic tradition this energy is called Ra, Re or Rau (incorrectly called the sun god, Chi or Ki in Taoism, Prana/Kundalini in the chakra system, etc.).  The two charges are called in the Kemetic tradition Shu (the Taosim Yang) and Tefnut (The Taoism Yin), the so-called god and goddess of air and fire, and moisture.

Shu the Kemetic Yang (left), Ra the Kemetic Chi/Ki (center), Tefnut the Kemetic Yin (right), standing on Maa

If this energy is too Shu (Yang), then it is too hot and dry and burns like an uncontrollable fire.  In this case the energy is not conducive for most life such as life in a desert, hence the northernmost part of Kemet called TaSett (the Red Lands), which was mythologically ruled by Set (the lower self).

If this energy is too Tefnut (Yin), then it is too cold and wet, and floods like an uncontrollable water, thus making it difficult for living conditions as well. This is symbolized as the southernmost part of Kemet which flooded annually called KamTa the Black Lands. This region was symbolized by the white Hedjet crown worn by Osar who was murdered by his younger brother Set due to his naivete.

However, when there is a relatively perfect balance between the Shu (Yang) and the Tefnut (Yin), the burning fire is able to clear enough water to make way for land (earth) and produce life (seeds, etc.). This balance is called Maa, which is personified as the goddess Maat but illustrated as Hru (Heru, Horus) who wears the double white (crown of Osar) and red (crown of Set) together as the Pschent crown.

Hopefully you get the picture that because there is only Energy. Everything that exist in composed of this Energy or the Rau force with two polar opposites (Shu/Yang and Tefnut/Yin) fluctuating to obtain Maa.

Now, it is important to understand that this One Energy exists in everything and manifests itself in everything in different ways but everything also has these same polar opposites that exist within it. For instance, every species on the planet has a Shu (masculine aspect) and a Tefnut (feminine aspect). Even within the species, everything has a Shu and Tefnut, which are all different manifestations of the same Energy.

When this Energy manifests itself In human beings.  If the Energy is too Shu/Yang then human beings are egotistic, selfish, pessimistic, heavy, angry, depressed, fearful, anxious, worrisome, hateful, envious, excessively stressed, etc.  However, if the Energy within human beings is too Tefnut/Yin, then human beings are dreamy because are out of touch with physical reality.  These individuals are so withdrawn from the physical realm that they live their life believing that all they need to do is mediate and/or do rituals. For instance, these are the people who will recognize that they need money and meditate or do a ritual for a job but will not fill out an application or go and look for a job. A lot of people who claim to be spiritual suffer from being too Tefnut, which is the reason most “spiritual people” are financially broke. If our Kemetic ancestors saw us living this way and claiming to be “spiritual” they would correct us and remind us that Kemet was a prosperous nation and that the people lived a prosperous life.

This is because ideally being spiritual means being in balance or Maa. Although Maa is personified as the goddess Maat (Ma’at), the symbolic representation of Maa is Hru (Heru, Horus) after he has overcome his trial and tribulations and ascended to the throne where he wears the double white and red Pschent crown, which is the symbol for Maa and a unified country/spirit.

Therefore, from a Kemetic perspective unless an individual has chosen to live their life as a renunciate (monk, nun, etc.) whereas their physical needs are provided by others.  Being ”spiritual” means living in balance or Maa where you engage in both realities like Hru who stands in the middle of both lands.

From this perspective, raising your vibration/consciousness means to put yourself in a state of alignment, balance or Maa.

How Do You Raise Your Vibration/Energy or Put Yourself in Alignment?

Keeping in mind that everything in our universe is composed of Energy. This means we are all connected to one another and everything by this same Universal Energy. Therefore, everything that exists is composed of energy which vibrates at a specific frequency. By the way, the terms “vibrate” and “vibration” are just a fancy ways of saying your overall being.

Since everything in our universe is composed of energy and therefore vibrates at a particular frequency. When you are being spiritual because you are in a state of alignment or Maa, then you are full of optimism, luck, etc. because everything flows to you because you are vibrating at a frequency that attracts to you whatever you want.

For instance, if you are looking for a mate but you are hanging around family and friends who are constantly bashing the other sex stating that “wo/men ain’t no good!”  Then you will have a hard time finding a mate because you are not in alignment with others who want to find a mate, hence you are out of balance. Therefore, you must change your overall being or vibration by changing the way you feel, think and/or act to get a mate.

There are several ways to change your vibration/energy or align your consciousness with what you want and they are:

  1. Change your thoughts by checking your beliefs and chanting mantras (if possible). Mantras can be a short prayer, sacred words, or a phrase repeated numerous times to generate energy and propel you to a specific goal. If you create your own mantras, be sure they are in the affirmative as if it has already occurred. For instance, I used to be very sarcastic and did not like speaking to people in the morning because I like quietness in the morning. So, when people asked how I was doing. I would quickly respond, “Another Monday” implying that another busy and stressful day like the first day of the week, so my Spirits/Universe made sure that every day was like Monday. To change my thought and how my day would unfold, I started replying “Peaceful and Abundant.” Of course, this generated conversation but it gave me a different vibration and made my day unfold in a very uplifting manner.
  2. Express Gratitude for Things You Appreciate in Your Life. One of the little rituals I like to do is go to sleep saying what I am grateful for. When I awake I am typically upbeat and ready to take on the day. Another little ritual is that when I repeat a mantra for something I want, I express gratitude rather it manifests or not. Another trick that is good for manifesting more money is to smile every time you spend money. Be grateful that you have money to buy food, pay bills, etc.
  3. Consume More Alkaline Foods. This means eating more foods such as nuts, seeds, vegetables, herbs, etc. and drink more water. Be mindful of the seasons and the environment you are in.  Also, remember too much fruit is just as bad as not enough.
  4. Do More Cardiovascular Activities. If you are like me and do not care for aerobics exercises like jogging and running. Try other cardiovascular activities like dancing. Whatever you do, it should be fun and enjoyable.
  5. Practice Maa by Giving to Others who are in need expecting Nothing in Return.

How Are Truly Spiritual People Supposed to Live

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).

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.

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.
