How Do You Meet God From a Kemetic Perspective?

Amun Ra v Aten

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

If you read and study the Kemetic history, eventually you will come across the historical figure known in Kemetic history as Akhenaten, the heretic Kemetic king. Who is Akhenaten and why out of all of the Kemetic kings and queens, he is one of the most celebrated and talked about by western historians?

Well, Akhenaten was born Amenhetep IV, the younger son of Amenhotep III and Chief Queen Tiye.   Amenhetep IV’s older brother Thutmose was supposed to succeed his father but he died at a young age so, Amenhetep IV became the next ruler of Kemet in the 18th Dynasty when his father around 1336 BC.

Amenhetep IV is famous for a few reasons. First, he is the husband of the controversial queen Neferneferuaten better known as Nefertiti and second, the father of the boy king Tutankhaten. But, he is celebrated and paraded around by historians and theologians worldwide because he is recorded as being the first ruler to abandon his “polytheistic” religion and create a “monotheistic” religion known as the worship of Aten.  To publicly acknowledge his faith to Aten, Amenhetep IV changed his name to Akhenaten and made the Aten religion the state religion of Kemet.  After Akhenaten‘s 17 years of rule, the Kemetic priesthood restored the Amun Ra religion, and had Akhenaten‘s son, Tutankhaten succeeded him but signaling the return to the Amun Ra religion by changing his name to Tutankhamen.

Now, most archeologists, historians, and theologians will tell you that the reason the Kemetic people rejected Atenism and returned to the Amun Ra religion is that they were so accustomed to their polytheistic religion.  In fact, many scholars were so quick to ridicule the followers of Amun Ra in favor of Akhenaten‘s Aten religion that some scholars like the famed psychologist Sigmund Freud, have tried to link the Aten religion to the Abrahamic religion believing that Moses a former Atenist follower.

Interestingly, what most archeologists, historians, and theologians fail to mention is that during Akhenaten’s rule he destroyed temples that were dedicated to the Amun Ra religion.  Not only that, but Akhenaten was also the first ruler to profess his divinity by claiming that he was the Son of Aten and encouraging people to only worship him and Neferneferuaten Nefertiti. But, archeologists, historians, and theologians praise Akhenaten for some great achievement. To understand why the Kemetic priesthood quickly moved to get rid of Akhenaten and his Aten religion, we have to truly understand what is idol worshipping.

Idol worshipping is defined as worshipping graven images, but what is a graven image? A graven image is defined as any carved object or any object that is used to represent God.  The term “Aten” is a Kemetic word for the “Sun,” which means that technically speaking Akhenaten forced the people of Kemet to worship a false god; first the Sun, and later him and his wife.

This means that the Kemetic priesthood recognized that the Aten religion was idol worshipping and one of the reasons they moved to get rid of it was because it is an egotistical creation that promotes nepotism and religious violence. In all so-called monotheistic religions, there is always someone or some group that is “chosen.”  In the case of Atenism, it was Akhenaten and Neferneferuaten Nefertiti.  In Judaism, it is the Children of Israel.  In Christianity (depending on who you talk to) it is the Jewish people, the 144,000, the Catholics, the Baptists, or only the C.O.G.I.C., etc. In Islam, the “chosen” people are the ones who chose to obey god, which is generally interpreted to mean only Muslims.

What happens to the ones, the people or the group that is not “chosen”?  Persecution, slavery, accused of being “witches”, every other atrocity that has been perpetrated in the so-called name of god by monotheistic religions.

Amun Ra symbolizes the peaceful state that we are supposed to be in.

The advantage of the Amun Ra view of God was that it never had religious skepticism, cynicism or religious violence due to religious schisms like the ones that exist in Judaism, Christianity and Islam because the Amun Ra religion was based upon the belief that the Supreme Being is One who becomes many.  This means we are all “chosen” because the Divine exists within us all. 

You see, in the Kemetic Story of Ra and Oset (Isis), Oset wanted to do the same things that Ra could do so and concluded that in order to be like Ra, she needed Ra’s real name.  So, she devised a plan where Ra would reveal his name by creating a poisonous serpent that would bite Ra when he passed by it.  As the Story goes, as planned Ra passed by the serpent and was bitten and tried to heal himself but was unable to do so. As a result, the dying Ra called everyone but no one knew how to heal him except Oset who appeared and told him that to heal him she needed his true name. Ra refused to share it with her but the agony was so great that he eventually conceded by passing his name to Oset in secret. (For a full version of the Story click here.)

The Story ends under the allusion that Ra never revealed to Oset his name.  However, the ending of the story is a metaphor referring to the metaphysical concept about Amun Ra, which means amun “the hidden” and ra “divine power.”  Thus indicating that the immortal power of God is within. 

Oset (Isis) and Hru (Horus)

It should be noted that this was how the Kemetic sages explained why we must suffer, experience hardship and how we got a soul. This ancient Kemetic story which was written thousands of years ago was adopted, modified and expressed in the Kabbalistic as Ra the primordial Light and Oset as the primordial Vessel who receives the Light, which indicates many Kabbalistic writers were simply trying to distance themselves from their Kemetic background.

Therefore according to Kemetic belief, human beings got a soul because Oset no longer wanted to receive unearned benefits from Ra. In other words, she wanted to become a God, like Ra, which means we have to work for everything that we want because if we do not earn what we want. We will not appreciate it.

Hru (Horus)

This was birthed into Hru (Horus), which means that the Divine is closer to us than what we think. We don’t have to be indoctrinated or initiated so that we meet the Divine. We do not need intermediaries like preachers to meet the Divine.  We are all chosne because we are all the Children of Hru born with an immortal soul that gives us freedom of will.  This means the Divine is within all of us.  Understand, every time we struggle to do what is right versus what is easy is when we meet the Divine.  Every time we have a problem it is an opportunity for us to go within and use our Divine Power to change reality.  So the reason the Kemetic priesthood restored the Amun Ra religion was to remind the people we meet the Divine every time we connect with our Higher Self or Osar (Osiris). We become like the Divine whenever we identify with our Higher Self.

Why is Kemet so Important to Afro-American Spirituality?

1 03 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Never forget we had a culture and history before America

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





Why is the Devil Winning? (Egregores)

8 02 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

This is not a post to say “I told you so” but in 2012 when the world was supposed to end.   I remember debating with an individual and telling them that the war against us is mental/spiritual and not physical.   There are no more physical slave plantations in operation with slave drivers and bounties hunters chasing down slaves in the United States.  So, why are so many of us suffering from post-traumatic slave syndrome even though slavery has been abolished for years and none of us were slaves?  In other words, why are so many of us living as if we were physically enslaved?  Answer. Blame it on the devil but not the devil most of us think of.

Spiritually speaking, the devil is our lower ego-subconscious self.  This means that most of our problems are ego-driven. What this means is that 99.9% of our problems are inspired by our subconscious-ego-self fears, anxieties, worries, guilts, excessive passions, etc., but what is driving our fears, anxieties, worries, guilt, excessive passion, etc.?

If you say the media’s coverage of racism, police brutality, sexism, and other isms, then you are correct, but what is encouraging and inspiring the media?

Answer. The metaphysical terms are thought-form pendulums, tulpas, or egregore which spiritual sages simply called spirits.   Wikipedia defines an egregore as “Egregore is an occult concept representing a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people..”  The egregore causing us the most problems is the forces driving racism, which we can appropriately call the Spirit of Racism. The force driving sexism, chauvinism, feminism, etc. is a spirit.

The reason the devil is winning is that we are not looking behind the veil and understanding that everything that physically exists has an invisible spiritual counterpart. Consequently, we get to the game late because we are reactive, instead of being proactive. This is why when something big happens folks are ready to go boycott and march after the fact because they feel that they have been blindsided. It is also the reason why we feel as if we are fighting an impossible enemy and that nothing we physically try will work.

Set metaphorically is the Lord of Storms, Confusion, Chaos, and anything that causes disunity

Family. If you think of racism, sexism, chauvinism, feminism, dogmatism, sexual perversion, etc. are all being living spiritual entities. You will have a better grasp of understanding them and seeing how they influence people including yourself.  When you come to grips that these are spiritual entities and see their divisive attacks on us to prevent us from uniting based upon common history. Then, you will see their agents and realize that these people who have been mysteriously placed positioned in front of us to be our leaders do not represent us, our family, our community, or our people.  They serve another master and follow someone else’s agenda.

Funny thing. Google Black Leaders and these celebrities are the individuals who speak on our behalf. I don’t recall voting for these individuals to represent me. Do you?

Once you see all of this, this is when you will realize that the puppet master behind it all is Set (the Ego). Yes, there are clandestine groups that exist and are plotting away but their plans would always fail if we did not give in to our Set. Understand. If there was no high demand for drugs, drugs would not exist. Drugs only plague our society because there is a high demand for them.

Please note that all egregores, thought-forms, entities are not evil but these particular spirits are doing whatever they can to survive and receive energy from our actions and behaviors.  This means we need to change our tactics and start focusing on how to fight a spirit, which is meant for those who got it like that. Got it?

So, the next time you pick up a picket sign, decide to march, boycott or fight. Ask yourself, is this really what you want to do or are you compelled, encouraged and pressured to act and behave this way. To help guide you in the right direction, check out Why You Should Be Using An Oracle.

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.

How Do You Know You Are Growing Spiritually

20 01 2020

How Do You Know You Are Growing Spiritually?

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I was recently asked this question by an individual on the Kemetic religious path.
How do you know if a diet work? Usually, you know if the diet is working after a couple of weeks to a month if you see your waistline shrink or a few pounds off have fallen off the scale. How do you know if you are building muscle that an exercise works? Obvious, you look at yourself in the mirror and you measure your biceps or whatever muscle group you are targeting. But, how do you know if you are growing spiritually? This question has often confused a lot of people mainly because in our era of “wokeness” the term spirituality is often tied with religion, although the two are different. At the same time, enlightenment is also used interchangeably with the word spiritual but these two terms are different as well. For instance, an individual can be enlightened but not spiritual, while a person can be religious and spiritual at the same time. So, how do you know if you are growing spiritually? Well before we dive into this subject, let’s define some terms so that we are all on the same page.

First thing first, we are composed of three parts known as the conscious, Superconscious and subconscious. For simplicity purposes, the conscious is the part of our mind that we use to make choices and decisions. The Superconscious is the part of our mind known as the Divine Spark because it is omnipotent, omniscient and it connects us to the Universe. The subconscious is known as our personal consciousness because it is responsible for helping us to physically survive by storing everything that we have learned in our memory and governing our emotions.

For this reason, the conscious is also called the Spiritual Heart or our Soul. The Superconscious is also called the Higher Self and is personified as Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiirs), while the subconscious is called the lower self or ego and is personified as Set.

Typically the way our life operates is that when we want something like a glass of water. We make a conscious choice or decision to get what we want, and our subconscious supports our decision by stimulating our body to get a glass of water. Then, our Superconscious manifests whatever we want (e.g. a glass of water) into a reality by providing us with the resources to get the glass of water. This is how we acquired everything pleasant our life.

But, what happens when we want something that appears out of reach like a job promotion, a better job, a home, etc.? Usually it is because our subconscious holds erroneous beliefs in our memory that prevents us from achieving what we want. For instance, if you want a better job, it is the ego within our subconscious that tells us that we do not have the qualifications or that we are not the best candidate. If we want a loving relationship, it is our ego that will tell us that all men/women cheat, are no good, etc. It is our ego that tells us that we are fat, ugly, not worthy to be loved, etc. It is our ego that tells us that “money does not grow on trees” and every other self-defeating belief we have about money and economic freedom.

Basically, every negative and sabotaging saying and belief that is whispered in our ear will come from our ego and where does the ego get these beliefs and ideas from? These are all beliefs and ideas that were either told to us or we picked up from our loved ones, friends, teachers, media, etc. and are now stored in our subconscious. Why did our subconscious pick up these ill beliefs and ideas? It is because the subconscious is like a child, which imitates and mimics everything that it is exposed to and categorizes it as good or bad based upon how the experience makes us feel.

Have you ever wondered why most people who struggle with an addiction, such as cigarettes will tell you how they know that smoking is bad for them, but they will continue to do it because the way cigarettes make them feel? It is because the knowledge about cigarettes appeals to the rational conscious mind, but the motivation and power to smoke are governed by the subconscious.

This is the reason the subconscious was symbolized as a jackass (donkey) because it is ruthlessly stubborn and emotional. This is the reason the subconscious or ego is personified as Set.

Set the personification of the ego

So, how do you change an old belief or idea that is stored in your subconscious? Well, if the belief or idea is fairly new, then it can be changed simply with reeducation. For instance, if you learned that 2+3=4, then being taught the proper way to add will easily correct this belief or idea so that you know the answer is 5.

But for old beliefs or ideas that have been impressed upon your subconscious with emotional triggers, it takes a little more finesse to change them. Typically, emotional beliefs and ideas can only be removed and replaced with a stronger emotional belief and idea. For instance, if you were a child who was bitten by a dog, then this traumatic event convince you that all dogs are ferocious and bad. But, if somehow you have a positive experience, such as a dog coming to your defense against an attacker, then this experience will topple the previous negative dog experience.

Now, you may not struggle with dogs but you might struggle with overeating, exercising, being too nice, being too aggressive, not making enough money, being selfish, etc., which are all character flaws created by your ego or Set. Therefore, the purpose of spirituality is to overcome the ego or Set by merging with the Higher Self or Osar.

Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris)

Therefore:

  • Spirituality is not calling yourself “Spiritual,” striving to be nice, striving to be good or declaring yourself better than others. Spirituality is personal psychological development aimed at overcoming all the conditional learnings of the ego that we learned from our family, friends, schools, churches, etc. – particularly egotism, selfishness, fear, anxiety, worry, and other character flaws.
  • Spiritual awakening means becoming aware of your ego’s or Set’s influence in your life.
  • Enlightenment, which has been misinterpreted as gaining information and learning about various subjects, really refers to expanding your consciousness from your ego-self to your Higher Self. Do you know that the reason most people became so health-conscious was that in the 1960s after the government created LSD? People tripped on LSD, mushrooms, ayahuasca, and other psychedelic drugs, which influenced these people to see that animals and plants were living beings too. This was enlightenment because their consciousness expanded and they no longer saw themselves as individuals but as parts of a larger whole. So for the record, reading and studying books on metaphysics, spirituality, history, etc. is not being spiritually awakened nor is it enlightenment. While this activity is a useful guide (especially for those of us who have no spiritual guide), it only strengthens, boost and inflates the ego which can be seen by “woke” YouTubers who argue how “spiritual” or “woke” they are based upon what they have read.
  • Religion, while etymologically defined as a system designed “to tie” one back to the Creator or Source, is a set of ritual and ceremonial practices performed for a lengthy period that they have now become a long-lasting routine. Anytime someone says that you must do something a certain way or else, they are following a religious practice. Since religious practices are basically rituals and ceremonies designed to make a strong impression on the subconscious they can assist in helping one to transcend their ego if it is combined with spiritual awakening and enlightenment. If spiritual awakening and enlightenment are absent from religious practice, then religion becomes a “spiritual trap” where individuals fight over dogmatic beliefs and think that they are “good” or “the Chosen Ones” and everyone else is evil.

How Do You Know You Are Growing Spiritually?

Usually, the most important sign that you are growing spiritually is that you will have a change in behavior. You may become more empathetic, patient, sharing, etc. Typically, whatever you are comfortable doing, you will find yourself in uncomfortable situations. For instance, it never fails that meek and mild manner people always are put in situations where they must be bold and aggressive. They will either get in relationships, have children, or put in job positions where they must be bold and aggressive and vice versa.

Another sign is that you take responsibility for your actions and behaviors because the more the flaw is brought to your attention. The more effort you can devote to changing or eradicating it from your subconscious.

You watch your thoughts, actions, behaviors, etc. because you know that if you dwell on them for a length of time. Your Superconscious will make it a physical reality.

Last but not least, you cease seeing things as good and bad and instead see every experience as an opportunity to spiritually develop and grow and become more Osarian (Asarian, Ausarian, Osirian).

For those on the Kemetic religious path, hopefully, this helps. However, note that if you are on the Kemetic shamanic path, then enlightenment is a side effect that occurs after focusing on tangible goals.

Can You Be Spiritual and Still Have Enemies? (Pt.2 How to Attack/Defend the Kemetic Shaman Way)

17 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

If you have not read Part 1 of this discussion, please do so that you can put things in perspective.

As I mentioned in Part 1, a lot of my mind control in regards to dealing with enemies comes from watching the television series Kung Fu, but to be fair. The mind programming did not just come from this series. I was brainwashed by the Church not to defend myself and to let God deal with those who oppose us (enemies).  My parents reaffirmed what the Church taught me, which was also communicated to me in history class whenever I was taught about Dr. Martin L. King, Jr.

Now, there’s a lot of new information coming out about King that people did not know. For instance, there are reports that King stated to his friend, actor, singer and activist Harry Belafonte”

“According to Belafonte, King responded, “I’ve come upon something that disturbs me deeply. We have fought hard and long for integration, as I believe we should have, and I know we will win, but I have come to believe that we are integrating into a burning house. I’m afraid that America has lost the moral vision she may have had, and I’m afraid that even as we integrate, we are walking into a place that does not understand that this nation needs to be deeply concerned with the plight of the poor and disenfranchised. Until we commit ourselves to ensure that the underclass is given justice and opportunity, we will continue to perpetuate the anger and violence that tears the soul of this nation. I fear I am integrating my people into a burning house.”

The reason for noting this is because almost 52 years later, it is easy to criticize the lack of foresight that individuals had in the past.  We have all talked about and heard discussions on the pros and cons of the Civil Rights Movement. However, what I have failed to hear a lot of discussion on is where King’s error in thinking came from.  Remember, King was inspired by Gandhi.

Did you know that Gandhi supported racial segregation and stated that the “Indians are a little better if at all than savages or the Natives of Africa.” In The South African Gandhi: Stretcher-Bearer of Empire by Ashwin Desai and Goolem Vahed, we find that Gandhi believed in the Aryan brotherhood and believed that Whites and Indians were superior to the Black Africans. We also find that he supported racist policies such as overtaxing the impoverished Africans of South Africa and turning a blind eye to the European brutality of the Africans whin the country, to support his belief that Indians were better.

Of course, I am pretty sure King did not know about Gandhi and his beliefs at the time. He was simply inspired by Gandhi’s nonviolent approach against imperialism because he saw Black people in the United States as being militarily powerless like the Indian people that Gandhi fought for. What King did not know is that the Indians’ nonviolent protest was also a tax resistance against the monopoly the British had on salt  (see the Salt March).

The point that I am making is that King did not know how to deal with enemies because he was looking for a solution outside of himself.

What we have to understand is that our situation is unique. There is no other group of people in the world that has undergone our experience, which means we are the only ones who can create a solution because of understanding the problem. So, how do you defend and protect yourself from enemies?

Well, our universe according to the Maa Aankh is composed of two realities: a spiritual (KAMTA) and physical (TASETT) realm separated by the watery Nyun and is connected by Maa, which mirrors what exists “Above, so below.” This means that our physical reality is a reflection of what is going on within our being and vice versa. Therefore, if your life is chaotic, then your soul is in turmoil. If your life is pleasant and happy, then your soul is pleasant and happy within. This is known as the Law of Correspondence, which basically means “likes attract likes.”

To defend and protect yourself the Kamta way, I would recommend you make a home for your warrior netchar Hru Aakhuti.  To do this simply purchase a cast-iron cauldron in Hru Aakhuti’s honor. If you cannot get a cast-iron cauldron then clay pottery or a woven straw mat will suffice because Hru Aakhuti is a wild guardian warrior.  He is about defense and protection. So, you need to purchase items that he can use to defend and protect you like a machete, knife or knives. You can place any item that you want inside the pot that symbolizes defense and protection including herbs, crystals, weapons, toy weapons, toy soldiers, protection oil, protection incense, etc. because of the Law of Correspondence. Whatever you do, I recommend that you also place 11 small plaster or ceramic skulls to symbolize unknown warrior spirits who are willing to work under Hru Aakhuti’s banner.

When you build or create a home for your netchar Hru Aakhuti and you create an electro-magnetic field specifically for defense and protection. The more you see your altar, which is giving it attention. The stronger your altar becomes or the more charged it will be. In fact, after a 28-day lunar cycle, the altar will be charged, which means any item placed on the altar and carried with you will be charged with the defensive and protective energy of Hru Aakhuti. For instance, you can take a small pocket knife and ask Hru Aakhuti to bless it so that it defends and protects you like a charm. Then, leave the pocket knife with him for 24 hr. The next morning you can carry it in your pocket. In exchange offer Hru Aakhuti an offering such as a red or purple candle, money, spicy foods, cigars, spirits (rum, vodka, gin, etc.), and so on. You can also add protection baths, oils and perfumes on the altar to change your aura.

If your enemy is harassing you and getting on your nerves. Take an item of theirs and place it on the altar, then ask Hru Aakhuti to protect you by removing the individual away from you. You do not need to worry about the details. Simply know and trust that Hru Aakhuti will deal with them appropriately.

Can You Be Spiritual and Still Have Enemies? (Pt. 1)

17 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

It will be MLK Day here soon and just in time because the other day my best friend sent me a djvlad video of an interview with Michael Jai White.  I have been a longtime fan of White’s martial arts movie since the 1990s and I am glad he continues to do films. Anyway, in one of the videos, he shatters the myths about Shaolin monks, ninjas and how most of the celebrities we see in the film doing martial arts are really actors and not combat martial artists the way the films portray them. It was a really good interview but the one subject that came up about Shaolin monks is how people were coaxed into believing Shaolin monks still existed because of the television series Kung Fu.

Kung Fu television series starring David Carradine

Now, for those of you who have read other posts that I have done, you know that I talk about this television series a lot because it portrayals “spiritual people” as these meek individuals walking around barefoot living an ascetic lifestyle.  It is really too bad that this TV series, which was originally pitched by and supposed to cast the legendary Bruce Lee in the lead role, ended up with David Carradine because Lee was considered to be too Asian.

The television series Kung Fu starring David Carradine.

It might have got some real Eastern philosophy inputted into the series, but instead those of us who grew up watching this series got a lot of fake imagery on what it meant to be a martial artist and fake imagery on what it means to be “spiritual.”

Consequently, I heard an individual the other day say on dealing with enemies, “When you’re really spiritual. Enemies, do not exist.”

Are you FRIGGIN kidding me? Then, the whole Story of Osar with Hru battling Set was about what? Your friends? I hate when people get spiritual concepts mixed up and have no commonsense.

Yes. Technically we do not have any enemies because we are all gods and goddesses, but if an individual does not recognize their divinity and they oppose you. They are your enemy.

Family. Being “spiritual” does not mean being “naïve” or “stupid.” I have said it before and I may be the only one who has said it because I approach Kemetic spirituality from a shamanic perspective, but Osar symbolizes an individual who is “too spiritual.” This is why he was murdered by his younger brother Set.

It does not matter how “spiritual” you are, you will always have “haters.”

The character Morpheus in the 1999 film The Matrix says it best when he told Neo about the agents. He states:

“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so  inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

When Neo looks at the woman in the red dress who turns into an agent. Morpheus tells Neo when he asks if it was the Matrix:

“No. It’s another program, designed to teach you one thing: If you are not one of us, you are one of them. “

Morpheus continues by saying that agents are sentient programs that can move in and out of software while still being hard-wired to the system.  In other words, agents are our enemies which are people who act solely based upon their feelings because they have no spiritual culture.

Understand. This does not make us better than them or vice versa. It simply means that you being a “spiritually” minded individual recognizes that the Divine is within you and everything, including your enemy.  The Divine is within a poisonous snake but you would be a fool to put yourself in danger by appealing to the snake’s higher self.

Commonsense is what a lot of us (myself included) lost from watching fake spiritual shows like Kung Fu. We must remember that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, so we must protect ourselves and defend ourselves if necessary.

Again, technically we do not have any enemies because we are all gods and goddesses, but if an individual does not recognize their divinity and they oppose you. They are your enemy.
