African Spirituality SAVES You MONEY

Have you ever been in a situation where you are pressed to make a decision on something even though you do not have all of the facts? Well, I was in one of those situations.  It started as an opportunity that seemed to come to me out of nowhere and as I am trying to relax so that I can see the whole situation clearly.  I am being bombarded with more and more details of just how great this opportunity is and why I should jump on it.

So, I try to sleep on it (as people say) and later that night I have a dream.  I dreamt that I was in the backseat of a van (meaning I have no control where the vehicle is going) and we’re going into this real sketchy town that I learn later (in the dream) that the people are cannibals (another omen that s*** is about to get real).

But, I am still being bombarded with these messages that this is a great opportunity and I need to make a move. Again, I check myself to make sure that I am not hesitating because of subconscious fear.

So, your boy does some deep breathing but it does not work because I am too close to it. I try to take a hot shower and still nothing. Then, my wife seeing I am stressed massages my shoulders, neck and scalp with lavender oil. It does the trick.

Npu (Anubis) - The Opener of the Way

Npu (Anubis) – The Opener of the Way

I get a visit from my ancestor to check out something before making a decision, so I give an offering to her and other ancestors to express my gratitude.  So, I get my tablets out and do a reading about the situation, which led me to talk to my Npu.  I am reminded that Npu deals with obstacles so I tell him, “Hey, open the way. There are too many obstacles with this ish. “

The next day, my head is clearer and I discuss the facts with my wife. I decide to tell all the parties involve that I am not making a move until I get assurance.  I explain to them that if things are meant to be then, ways will open and that I am not about to push a square block into a peg hole.

So, the ball starts rolling the way I decide.

What I was experiencing is what many term as artificial synchronicities.

Artificial synchronicities are engineered to drain, distract, mislead, sabotage or suppress one from seeing.  In other words, artificial synchronicities are designed to get you to ignore your intuition by bombarding you with a lot of information, usually misinformation.

Natural synchronicities come from your Higher Self or your BA. It is your BA/Higher Spirits/the Universe’s way of letting you know that a quantum shift if imminent, which can be either smooth or emotionally charge. The purpose of natural synchronicities is to confirm a decision you have made and forecast the progress of your decision.

Most people get caught up in artificial synchronicities because if you were like me, born and raised in the church, you don’t the difference between the natural and artificial synchronicities. You were raised to see all synchronicities as a blessing and to act on (blind) faith.

How do you know the difference between the two? Usually, artificial synchronicities always seen to need you to rush to do it or you will miss out on the opportunity. They are always forceful and rushed and seem to require no planning but, we live in a cause and effect world. Nothing happens accidentally, coincidentally or haphazardly.  When things seem too good to be true, usually they are but that’s the reason you need to have an oracle to help you to see through the smoke.

If I had not had done a reading with my tablets, had the dream, the visit from my ancestor and the idea to get my Npu to work, I would have been out of a lot of money because I believed “it was meant to be” instead of looking at all of the facts. One of the purposes of approaching spirituality from the Kemetic perspective is to remove some of ambiguities in life. Yes, African Spirituality saves you money, time and energy.  Don’t be fooled. The reason “sleepyheads” don’t want us to communicate with our ancestors, use divination systems, etc. is because they know it works and want us to continue to be under their foot. The tide is changing and it start with you doing you.

How to Shift from a Religious Mindset to Spiritual/Magical/God Mindset?

19 06 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, a lot of people are still having a difficult time on making the transition to spirituality because they are stuck in this Judeo-Christian paradigm. If you have read all the books on how Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all based upon Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) science. You know how all these major religions are the main culprit for most of the atrocities that have occurred on the planet such as the genocide of the Amerindians (indigenous cultures throughout the Americas), the enslavement of Africans and the numerous wars fought in the name of “God.” You know that all the stories you have learned in the major religions make no logical sense like God has the power to make everything but needs a rib from Adam to make a woman? And, the Great Flood story, where similar stories have been found in South America, the Pacific Islands and even in Asia. But, still you are having difficulties taking that final step it is because you have taken steps to understand the power of your mind.

Remember, our mind is composed of three parts: BA (Superconscious/Higher Spirit), sahu (subconscious/lower spirit) and Ab (conscious/spiritual heart/soul).  Most people live their life on autopilot, which is governed by the sahu but the omnipotent and omniscient part of our being is our BA. It is our BA that automatically connects us to the Divine, but most religions will not teach this because they want us to continue to believe that the Divine is billions of miles away outside of our being.

The BA has a human head and body of a hawk to indicate that it is the Superconscious (Divine Spark) that connects us back to the Divine, but it will only manifest what we think and believe (human head).

Once you understand how your mind works, then you will see that most of the stories in the “religious” books were not meant to be taken literally. It is all an allegory.  This is the reason most of the stories do not make any sense. Once you make this realization, it will become crystal clear that people are misinterpreting something that was supposed to be metaphorical in the first place. For instance, people are fighting over if Jesus taught this way or that way, when the truth of the message is Jesus was not even real. The stories were all about resurrecting the Jesus within you or connecting with your BA.

So, you see, all the major religions are based upon the sahu, which is why they focus on ethics, morality and commanding you on what you should and should not do. In other words, all the major religious are based upon social control.  To put it plainly, all the major religions are political. All the major religions have nothing to do with spirituality or on teaching you how to work with your BA.  This is the reason you have such a distaste for them and feel a calling for something more outside of the normal routine.

And, there lies the secret to shifting to a spiritual/magical/GOD mindset.

You must do something different or think outside of the box. Einstein said it best and I paraphrase, “You cannot use the same type of thinking to solve a problem, that created the problem in the first place.” All our problems were created either unintentionally or intentionally via our sahu and religious conditionings. So, we cannot rely upon it to resolve our problems. We must tap into our BA. In other words, everything that the establish religions taught us not to do, you need to do.

The church says pray to God in heaven, then you talk to God within. (Yes talk to Your Self).

The church says don’t practice magic because it is evil, then practice magic because it must be good.

The church says don’t venerate your Ancestors because if you do you are going to go to hell, then venerate your ancestors because they will help you to understand how to get out of hell you are in.

The church says building an altar to a deity is a sin against God, then build an altar to a deity to resurrect your God within.

Everything that established religions have taught us as the norm was basically to make us conform and be a follower, a sheep, a piece meat led to the slaughter. Basically, everything that the established religions have taught regarding our spiritual development, we must abandon and do the direct opposite to liberate ourselves.

You must remember that if these established religions were so good for us, there would not be a church, temple, mosque, etc. on every corner.

How to Save Yourself through the Power of Knowledge of Self (K.O.S.)

22 05 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I just finished a disturbing conversation with someone whom I thought was aware. As I listened to this individual “talk-the-talk,” you know that “Hotep. I am Woke. We got to do this for babies. I am not African American I am Afrakan, etc.”   I began to see through this individual’s armor.  Spirit began revealing to me that this individual ain’t about nothing but is caught up in the fad of being conscious. So, I let this individual just babble because they were somewhat entertaining but when the moment came, I asked, “So you work with your ancestors?”

Their response was, “Oh yeah! The ancestors are with me. They are going to help us win against the MAN.”

“No. Do you have an ancestor shrine and work with your ancestors?” I asked.

“Nah Brother, that’s some ole primitive Afrikan stuff. I don’t mess with that because it doesn’t work. It is all superstitious anyway.”

Another example of someone playing conscious or what I call conplay. You know it is like cosplay but they are playing to be conscious.

From the film I’m Going to Get You Sucka!

I don’t know where or how the idea came about that consciousness or “woke” (as people like to call it) refers to how many dashikis you adorn, how natural your hair is, your diet, etc.  Or, for that matter, how many books you have read. I mean if you have read a lot of books, all this means is that and I quote, “YOU READ A LOT OF BOOKS.”

I used to be the same way.  I used to step into a cipher and spit all of this information about all the books I had read but after the cipher ended. I was still financially broke. At the time I was still lonely. I was not successful because I was torn between pursuing a college degree/career/working for the man and self-employment as a starving artist selling artwork, tee-shirts and incense.  But, I claimed to be “conscious” and considered others who had stopped eating pork or became a vegetarian/vegan and knew about history “conscious” as well. But, I was not conscious and these individuals I rolled with were not conscious either. We were all informed meaning we read a lot of books and therefore, had a lot of information.

We are told that conscious means to be “aware” or “awake” from a metaphorical sleep. This means that if someone is sleep they are walking around in a daze as if they are on autopilot. For instance, my morning routine is to wake up, go to the restroom, check the house, make breakfast, and get things ready for my wife to help my wife so that when she awakes she can focus only on the baby. I wake up every morning and follow this same routine because this is my program and it works for me. I mean even when I do not have to go to work, I get up around the same time and do this same routine. So, technically you can say that my morning routine is on autopilot. If something happens that throws me off of my program like I wake up late or something, then my morning routine will be out of whack and I will seek to get back on my routine. This is what it means to be sleep. Therefore, consciousness means that you are aware of the routine you are following.

People who smoke cigarettes are under the influence of a subconscious behavior. When they feel stressed, are in a social setting, etc. they go on autopilot and reach for a cigarette despite them knowing the ill effects of this habit.  I don’t smoke cigarettes because I am conscious or “aware” of the effect it has upon by physical body, so I have chosen not to engage in this subconscious behavior. You see, most people who are sleep just do things out of habit based upon their emotions. Conscious means that you are able to step away from a situation and make a rational decision despite how you feel subconsciously. This is the reason people who smoke cigarettes out of habit are said to be “sleep” while those who do not are “conscious.”

In short, Consciousness is not about making you feel good.  Being informed is.

So, there are some things that we are all conscious about and some things we are not. When you are “conscious”, the metaphorical light comes on and it does not go out. It stays with you because this is the Left Eye of Ra.

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 and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

A lot of times, you cannot even explain in words the Aha or Eureka moment because it is ethereal and corresponds to the Light of Amun Ra.

A lot of people are confusing informed with consciousness. Informed refers to the Light of Ra or the left Eye of Ra. Consciousness is the Light of Amun Ra or the Right Eye of Ra.

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

Understand the difference?

Another difference between the Light of Ra (Right Eye of Ra or being informed) and the Light of Amun Ra (Left Eye of Ra or being Conscious) is that the former is aggressive, left-brained, argumentative, competitive, etc. and the latter is passive, right-brained, cooperative, etc. We see this difference played out in western society all the time. For instance, there are a lot of people who are informed about Christianity, Judaism and Islam. You never hear a lot of Jews, Christians or Muslims say, “I know God” because their religion is not based upon knowing and realization. It is based upon beliefs, which can change every time there is new experience. Most people who are informed about these religions because they see the inaccuracies within the stories.  They have been taught as children to interpret the myths of their religion literally but when they came of age they began asking, “How did Adam and Eve populate the entire planet?” “How did Noah put all of the animals in the world on one boat?”

They are informed about these religions but they are not conscious, which is the reason they leave the temple, the church or the mosque and get into another dogmatic religion from Africa, China or India.  They follow these traditions out of fear that if they break some taboo, that some deity, ancestors or karma is going to punish them. If they were Conscious they would understand that religion is a tool for social control, which is the reason we were all taught to interpret the myths literally so that we develop ethics and morals.  If they were Conscious they would also understand that the whole idea of praying to something outside of you to empower or save you is that basis of all religious mindset. The whole idea that God or some god, spirit or karma is going to get you is all part of social control.  I cannot tell you how many people I have met tell me that they are going to do or not do something because of karma…But You’re a God/Goddess living in Fear? (By the way, the reason Europeans and Arabs could easily come into Africa and indoctrinate us with their religion was because our mind was primed for religious instructions. The Europeans and Arabs simply took the name of our god and demonized it by claiming that it was evil to go within and professing that our salvation came from praying to their deity. That’s the difference between being Conscious and being Informed.)

This same mindset can be found when it comes to diet and health.  Most people are informed about dietary ills but they are not Conscious, which is the reason they have turned their dietary lifestyle into a religion by only dealing with people who eat the same way they consume food. If an individual comes into these so-called “health conscious” people sphere with some type of infirmity these so-called “health conscious” people look down on them. Yes, suddenly “health conscious” has become a religion and you hear these people all the time preaching against soul food, but whenever they can’t get to their tofu or some other soybean product, they will reach for potato chips and chocolate. Yet, they are “health conscious.” No. They are informed.

I know about all of this because I did it. I used to be informed about my history, my religion, my health, etc., which led me (like many people today) to mimicking others – particularly my perception of what or how I thought the Kemetic people lived. When I became conscious about certain subjects I stopped reading so many books and began to intuit (channel) certain knowledge. When I say an ancestor told me something, I know that I did not get the information based upon my personal experience, which meant it had to have come them because their blood and consciousness survives through me.

Some people asked me where do I get my information from so, that they can read and study the same thing. I list all the books that I have read and inspired me but tell them a lot of what I know is because my spirits told me so. Some of these people interpret my response as me not wanting to reveal my sources but others regard it is primitive foolishness because they just don’t want to do the work. They are quite happy sitting on their backsides talking about the culture, the ancestors, discussing metaphysics and arguing with some other individual who claims to be conscious. When technically all they are doing is arguing over a difference of opinion based upon the information they read.

When an individual has true knowledge of self or is conscious they come together with like minds because they see the similarities in various systems. For instance, I do not have to practice Taoism to get along with someone who professes they are Taoist. In facts, I can read certain parts of the bible and use it for liberation because I am not swayed by the beliefs.

Being Informed only boosts the ego who is symbolized as Set, while being Conscious boosts your Higher Self.

In other words, when you are conscious you do not come together on superficialities such as sharing the same beliefs and ideas. This is the same thing that Jews, Christians and Muslims do among themselves and each other. They argue about how the other’s interpretation of their religious myth is interpreted incorrectly.  This is the same thing that so-called people do.  In fact, the reason these “conscious people” on the Internet are always beefing with each other is because they all have difference in opinions. They do not understand we are all dynamic individuals and we are supposed to have different opinions because we each have different experiences and come from different backgrounds. We had to have different experiences to accomplish our destinies. For instance, I had to be born into a Christian household where my father is a preacher, so that I could understand how religion hoodwinked us. That’s my maa (way) and everything I deal with has helped me to get on this road. So, I would not dare devalue someone who didn’t have the same upbringing and therefore do not have the same perspective. That’s not their maa. Their maa is different from mine but if they are conscious we should be able to respect one another.

For instance, when I hear people say that the Kemetic people were black and brown Africans because they named themselves after the black fertile soil.  I understand that this individual is just scratching the surface of spirituality. This is something they read or heard making them informed but it is not what they know. I know that the Kemeitc people named themselves after the mysterious blackness of the universe. That is not something I read. I mysteriously came into that knowing. I have experimented and test it out by slowly delving into the darkness where our Ancestors and Spirits reside. When I listen to other people who have had similar experiences, even though they may not have had the same experience or explain their experience from a different perspective. I understand them because it is not their beliefs, ideas, opinions or information that unites us but their knowledge of self. Basically, their interpretation is how their mind works.

Knowledge of Self means knowing your Self or how your minds work, that is the Higher, Middle and lower mind. This is what the Kemetic people excelled in and the reason they accomplished so much is because they understood the power of the mind. In fact, their technology is what we call spirituality, which is what people call today magic. There are plenty of systems that exist but you must figure out which system works best for you and use it to make your own. So, to be conscious means to know how to influence your world spiritually.

That being said, leave these people alone who want to sit around arguing about how conscious they are. They are only stroking their ego and the ego remember is our Set. Instead of following these people, learn how to go within and master your mind. That’s why you are here.

How to Defeat the “hidden enemy/hidden hand”

23 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I recently celebrated a birthday or earthday, which means in this lifetime I am over 35 years old but when I recognize my earthday from a metaphysical perspective. It means that I have completed over 35 cycles or revolutions, hence over 35 maa aankh (orders of life).

Maa Aankh with Utchat

But, when I recognize my birthday from an ancestral perspective, it means that I have completed 2,035 maa aankh (order of life/cycles). In other words, I have incarnated to this planet more than 100 times and my Ab soul/consciousness has evolved this number of times. Therefore, the true age of my soul experience is around 2,000 years old. This means that my ancestral lineage goes back at least 2,000 years ago. Said another way, when the first of my ancestors walked this planet, it was 2,000 years ago.  This means that I have over 2,000 years of ancestral memories available to me.

To comprehend this, we have to understand evolution from a spiritual perspective.  Because we have been taught that evolution occurs on a biological level in the sense that we have evolved from fish, to land mammals and finally to creatures who can walk upright and think.  But, in truth it was our consciousness that evolved, which led to our physical evolution based upon the anatomy of the human brain.

You see, the human brain is composed of three parts known respectively as the reptilian or r-complex brain (the lowest brain found in reptilaes), the mammalian brain (limbic found in mammals) and the neo-cortex (the newest part of the brain only exists in human beings). From a spiritual evolutionary perspective this means that when we incarnated to this planet we all incarnated into a low mentality (r-complex). Then when we physically die, our consciousness reincarnated back to the planet and began to climb the evolutionary ladder. Understand, someone got it wrong. Once we enter into the human cycle of reincarnation, if we break the laws of God we are not punished by reincarnating back to the planet as a worm, bird, dog, or some other lowly lifeforms (lower consciousness). This is similar to passing the 9th grade but you got caught cheating so education system demoted you back to 3rd grade or lower.  That’s not evolution. No, if you get caught cheating in the 9th grade, you don’t pass the 9th grade. You are not promoted to the next level.

Yes. If we stick with this analogy of evolution being similar to the education system. This means that most of us in this lifetime are currently in spiritual evolutionary high school and preparing to enter spiritual evolutionary college. How do we know this? For starters, this is the reason you are reading this post. You will also find that magical things occurred in your life and the reason you are attracted to these occult things is to get an explanation. Hence, you have an old “soul age” and as soon as you fill in a few spiritual voids. You will have an eureka moment or awakening and you will start doing things magically.

But everyone is not on the same level.  Everyone on this planet does not have the same “soul age.” There are some souls who have incarnated to this planet that are a little bit older than my soul, and there are others who are slightly younger.  But, there are a few souls who have incarnated to this planet that are very young and unfortunately, these are the souls who are ruling the world. These spiritually immature souls are the “hidden enemy.”

Who are the “hidden enemy”?

Well, conspiracy theorists have called them all sorts of names like the hidden hand and the illuminati, but actually know one knows what they call themselves.  For years, filmmakers have made countless films about how inhumane, callous and methodical this small spiritually immature people are such as Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Stephen King’s It, John Carpenter’s The Thing and They Live, The Matrix or another one of my favorites Dark City.   Some theorists like David Idke claims that they are reptiles like the characters in the hit 1980s TV series V, but these are metaphors referring to the fact that they have mastered and primarily use the reptilian brain. These images are grotesque and frightening because they rule through fear.

How did these spiritually immature souls get the power to rule the world?

Simple. These spiritually pre-K souls were bullies and when they went around the world and encountered more spiritually advanced souls, instead of humbling themselves and sitting at the more spiritually advanced souls’ feet, they destroyed the more advanced souls’ records, texts and stole all of the sacred artifacts, which sit in their museums. Then, these less advanced souls locked themselves up in their secret chambers so that they can practice our spiritual systems but they are unable to advance the way we have because they lack the spiritual maturity. Think of it this way, they – spiritually speaking- were just learning how to count their numbers and do basic arithmetic, while we spiritually speaking have completed pre-calculus.

So to halt our spiritual progress, this is the reason they demonized all traditional spiritual culture. This is the reason they will not publicly admit that the Kemetic people were black and brown Africans, nor acknowledge that the true descendants of the Kemetic people are the people throughout the Afro-Diaspora.  This is the reason they created Judaism, Christianity and Islam, all monotheistic religions that were supposed to bring peace but have instead authored nothing but wars and the destruction of the planet.

Every institution that currently exists such as the entertainment, financial, religious, judicial, legal, political, military, governmental, educational, etc. was created to halt if not destroy our spiritual progress, which is the reason none of these things that they tell us to use works for us as a whole. Yes. The world is in a bad shape because it is being held hostage by spiritual ten year olds.  It would be foolish to believe that we could physically fight them when they own everything because this is their world, their reality but, it can all change by us doing one thing.

Reconnecting to our Aakhu (Ancestors).

Het Aakhu (House/Altar for Ancestors and Spirit Guide)

When we reconnect to our aakhu, we reclaim the ancestral memories that were lost. Remember, these spiritual children want us to identify with our current earth age and not our incarnation age. This is the reason our history always begins in their history books with slavery because they do not want us to reconnect back with our ancestral memories. It does not serve their agenda but when we reconnect back with our aakhu.  Our aakhu will speak to us as voices, appear in our dreams or appear as signs to improve the quality of our life. In other words, our aakhu will help us to escape the trap that has been laid before us by these spiritually immature people.

When we begin working with our aakhu, we align ourselves with our Higher Self and gain access to the memories that will allow us to create our reality. In other words, we learn how to tap into our divinity or what people call magic.

Yes, there is a small minority that controls the world. They are performing rituals behind closed doors in order to maintain their dominance.  They are counting on us all to stay asleep and turn our back on our ancestral traditions and our ancestral culture.  But as soon as you wake up and realize that everything that they have told us about our self is a lie.  That we are not born in sin. That our history does not begin with us being slaves. That our ancestors and other spirits are not to be feared.  That God is within us all. As soon as we begin working with our aakhu (ancestors) like Hru worked with Osar (Asar, Osiris), that is when everything will change.

How to Regularly Work With Your Ancestors & Spirit Guides (Aakhu)?

5 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know what?  When you embark upon a spiritual path sometimes you need a reminder of why you perform certain practices because we are living in peril times that encourage us to give into our ego, our lower self, or Set. Ancestor veneration reminds us that we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us and that whenever we cannot find a solution to our problem from the available physical resources.  We need to go within.

So, I was talking to one of my former math students who is from Vietnam about some of the food traditions they have in their country. They were telling me how they immigrated to the United States with their parents when they were three years old and, how they made it a custom to visit their home country every two years. As we talked, they told me how their food was so different from the American diet because they prepare fresh vegetables every day to eat alongside their meats, rice and/or noodles. As they were telling me this, it seemed to have slipped but they mentioned how they offer fruit and incense to their ancestors.

Not skipping a beat to make them feel comfortable talking to me about this spiritual practice, I remarked, “Yes, I offer a candle, incense and food to my ancestors as well.”

Feeling somewhat at ease, they continued talking and began asking them more questions about how they honor their ancestors like how many days during the week do they perform this rite and what types of food are offered.  They told me that usually they simply offer a mango, which is different from the oranges that are offered by many Chinese practitioners.

Then, I asked “Do you burn money for your ancestors?” To which they replied they do but usually on special occasions.

For the most part, all they could tell me was that everything that they are doing usually tradition.  We talked for a little bit more and then parted ways because we both had separate engagements, but it got me thinking…

I don’t recall seeing a lot of Asian people living in poverty. Now, I am not saying that there are not any financially poor Asians living in the United States. I am just saying that I have not seen many and maybe it is because they regularly honor their ancestors.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The reason my former student and I could have such a pleasant conversation about the ancestors was because as far as I could tell. The Asian understanding of the afterlife is similar to the thoughts of the Maa Aankh, which is that the dead (in KAMTA) and the living (TASETT) are dependent upon one another. The relationship between the living and dead is symbolized in the Story of Osar as Hru need for Osar in order to defeat Set.  Coincidentally, this is the basis of Kemetic Spirituality

From what I could assess from my student is that by specifically calling their ancestor by name and stating that they are giving them an offering of food, drink, money, gifts, etc., so that they can use in their realm. The hope (belief) was that the ancestor would give them the things they need in order to live in the physical world.

Remember, there is no right or wrong way to make an offering to your aakhu (ancestors) but when you make an offering to your aakhu. You are in essence giving them energy, which is basically taking something from the physical world and giving it to the spiritual world. For instance, if you wanted to offer a $5 bill, then once you put that money on the altar, it can no longer be used to buy physical things because that money belongs to the dead.  The same effect can be achieved by burning Spirit Money or Heaven Notes.

Understand, this is not say that by honoring one’s ancestors you will not experience financial hardships.  Also, do not err in thinking that all you have to do is honor your aakhu and blessings will fall out of the sky.  This is a spiritual practice that will help you to remember that everything that physically exists comes from an invisible spiritual source.  By giving your anxieties, worries and fears to your ancestors, you will find most of your problems will easily resolve themselves when this ritual is done regularly.

What is Kemetic Spirituality (Kamitic Spirituality, Kemeticism or Ancient Egyptian Spirituality)?

25 02 2018

Before explaining what Kemetic (also sometimes spelled Kamitic, Khamitic or Ancient Egyptian) spirituality is, it is important first to understand a little bit about the Kemetic people and their way of life.

Kamitic Map Copyright Derric Moore 2012

For starters, according to the Kemetic texts, wall art and legends, the indigenous Kemetic people consisted of a numerous tribal people who migrated from a southern land known as Kush (Ancient Nubia the modern day Ethiopia and Sudan region).  Thousands of years ago, these ancient people settled alongside the Nile River and built an agrarian culture that revolved around the annual inundation of the great river.

Pyramid structure in Ancient KushLike most indigenous cultures from around the world, the Kemetic people studied nature and developed their spirituality thereafter. The Kemetic people relied upon a bartering system for goods and services. In fact, gold was not even valued by the Kemetic people as it is today, until after it was conquered by the Romans.  This bartering system depended on the annual flooding of the Nile to make the desert soil fertile, great importance was placed on ensuring that the waters of the Nile overflowed.  Without a monetary system, if the Nile flooded it produced fertile lands, which in turn yielded a successful harvest, that allowed everyone within the country to reap the benefits. However, if the Nile did not flood and the harvest was not good, then famine reached into the homes of both the rich and the poor.

Kemetic farmers courtesy of Wikipedia.org

To ensure that the Nile always flooded so that they were always prosperous, early Kemetic people began making ritualistic gestures accompanied by words for a successful harvest. If the following year the harvest was a success, then the ritualistic gestures and the spoken phrases were recorded and repeated to influence next year’s harvest. If the harvest was not a success after performing a ritualistic gesture and words, then that ritual was abandoned. In time, the Kemetic people had developed three methods of ensuring that they had a successful harvest and they were: 1) Making offerings to the Nile; 2) Ingesting magical potions and inscriptions; and. 3) Petitioning their ancestors whom they believed could influence the lives of living.

Kemetic Ritual courtesy of Wikipedia.orgSince Kemet was basically an oasis that relied upon bartering, a sort of quid pro quo philosophy developed and the most abundant offerings were incense and resins.  But, because incense and resins were so prized, only the king could afford to make these offerings for the successful inundation of the Nile. In time, it became the sole responsibility of the king to perform these rituals all over the country, to ensure that all of the Kemetic citizens could prosper.   Thereby transforming the king from an ordinary man into God’s representative on earth. Basically, the Kemetic king was seen as a mediator between the spirit world and the physical world symbolized by the leopard pelt, which was also a symbol of balance and self-control or Maa. Soon it became too much for the king to perform all of these rituals and eventually it was delegated to other members of royalty and the priesthood.

In a relatively short time, the Kemetic priesthood evolved and became so powerful that they were able to challenge the king’s authority because aside from performing rituals for the Nile that ensured that everyone was prosperous. The Kemetic priesthood worked as scribes, carpenters, metalworkers, physicians and artisans that provided a host of spiritual services to the people mainly because majority of the Kemetic people were illiterate.  To service their people, the Kemetic priesthood opened its’ membership to both both men and women, a celebratory feat that is still not seen in Judaism, Christianity and Islam because of sexism.  Some of the most famous Kemetic priestesses were Queen Ahmose Nefertari, Hatshepsut’s grandmother, the priestess Tamut and there are many others who held high positions in the priesthood in the Amun spiritual tradition.

In fact, through the Kemetic priesthood one could elevate their social status from an illiterate farmer to a high nobleman within the community.  There are numerous accounts of common people with special skills having a change in social status because they used their skills to improve the lives of others because the priesthood allowed people to hone their talents.   It was through the priesthood that various spiritual practices were developed and beliefs were shared with other cultures that the Kemetic people encountered. Because spiritual rituals permeated every aspect of the Kemetic peoples’ life, the Kemetic people were described as being the most religious people in the ancient world.

Life for members of the Kemetic priesthood was busy because the Kemetic priesthood was a business that focused on performing spiritual rituals the people. However, the average Kemetic citizen only venerated their ancestors and celebrated local and national spirits during their festivals. In other words, the basis of Kemetic spirituality revolved around the veneration of their ancestors. For the most part, the only time the average Kemetic citizen petitioned the higher spirits, divinities or so-called gods and goddesses, is for emergency purposes such as for a successful harvest and healthy cattle.  Again, the Kemetic people focused on group prosperity and not on individual, which allowed their society to exist for thousands of years. As a result, every western system such as western religion, western government, western science, western financial structure, etc. has been inspired by the Kemetic society and has desperately tried to imitate their success.  All of these western systems that were inspired by the Kemetic culture have failed miserably to mimic the Kemetic success because western scholars focused on treasures of Kemet because their tombs were full of valuables. Instead of on the Kemetic concept of Knowledge of Self.

Consequently, many of us live in a country that may be rich in Kemetic symbolism but it is not the bearer of the Kemetic Light.

In fact, many of us do not live in an agrarian society with strong and loving rulers. We do not have a trustworthy clergy and other professionals who are concerned about our health and wellbeing. Since our contemporary society is based upon a monetary system, which places values on technological gadgets and the possession of things like shoes, clothes, a new car, home, etc. Prosperity is not based upon ethics, morality of the services that one provides other citizens but the collection of material things. In this western society, religion is not used as a means of ensuring that everyone within the country is prosperous, but instead used to incite fear in its citizens of a tyrannical deity.  In order to ensure social obedience to the wealthy ruling class and dominance over the masses’ physical and mental potential. In place of an appreciation for nature and respect for all living beings, is the exploitation of the natural resources and the manipulation and maltreatment of all human beings, especially people of color.

The rising interest in Kemetic spirituality is to return back to the days before the rise of monotheistic religions – particularly Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Since the inception of these three main western religions, which were tasked with bringing peace to all of humanity. There have been countless atrocities such as the enslavement of people of color, brutality against women and numerous wars waged in the “name of God,” who supposedly is bringing peace on earth.

Oset (Aset, Auset or Isis in Greek) and the Virgin Mary

Before the rise of these Abrahamic religions, life on earth was relatively peaceful and simple, and since most of these religions borrowed concepts and principles from the Kemetic religions and spiritual traditions. Most see Kemetic spirituality as a purer form of these religions minus the religious dogma, religious fear and guilt about God, and religious social control.

All practitioners of Kemetic spirituality strive to live their lives according to the Kemetic concept Ma’at or Maa. Maa is the Kemetic word for balance, order, truth, righteousness, etc.  The concepts of Maa can be found all throughout the Kemetic literature because it is very similar to the Chinese Tao.  But unlike Taoism whose philosophies and practices have been preserved over the ages in books and secured in Chinese culture for hundreds of years, the books about Maa have been destroyed by looters and lost in the sands of times.

Since there are no clear concise Kemetic text explaining in detail their beliefs and practices, adherents of Kemetic spirituality have interpreted the practice of the philosophy as they desire. Most followers can be grouped into two categories: Kemetic Reconstructionists and Kemetic Shamans.

Hru (Heru, Hrw or Horus) Leading the Way and Jesus leading the Way

Kemetic Reconstructionists (KR) are usually individuals who focused on reconstructing the Kamitic/Kemetic religion of old. As a result, most KRs rely heavily on the Kemetic spiritual texts such as the Pert em Hru (so-called Egyptian Book of the Dead), the Pyramid Texts, the 42 Laws of Ma’at (the model for Moses’ Ten Commandments), etc. Most KRs may have one shrine will a host of Kemetic icons on it to demonstrate balance, which in this sense is very similar to the original Roman Catholic religion prior to the Council of Nicaea.  The various divinities are seen as archetypes and/or emissaries of God similar to how the various saints are viewed in Catholicism.

The First Divine Trinity

However, overall the central theme in most KRs practice is the Kemetic Asar (Osiris), Aset (Isis) and Hru (Horus) who are viewed as the first and original divine trinity.  In fact, most KRs view Hru (Heru, Hrw or Horus in Greek) as the original prototype or avatar of Jesus who was born of virgin birth, identified by a star in the east, adorned by three kings, a teacher at 12 years of age, performed miracles, baptized at 30, crucified, rose from the dead, etc. 3000 years before the birth of Jesus. Some KRs worship Hru similar to the way Christians worship Jesus with the distinction being that the Kemetic hero is not seen as the literal savior of humanity, but rather as a divine energy that exists within everyone and can be used to help humanity save themselves. Consequently, a lot of KR practices revolve around meditation and meditative practices that focus on merging with the God-Self within.

Kamitic Shamans or Kemetic Shamans are usually individuals who use the Kemetic philosophy as the core of their spiritual tradition and combine it with influences from other spiritual paths (usually traditional African beliefs and practices) because Kemet is recognized as the cradle of traditional African spirituality.

Unlike KRs, Kemetic Shamans only believe in worshiping God who may be called Neter – the Supreme Being – or Nebertcher – the Lord of Everything; and working with a host of spirits such as their ancestors and divinities from other pantheons.  Most Kemetic Shamans are very eclectic and their altar reflects their spirituality. However, their main focus is achieving and maintaining balance in their life, and helping others to accomplish the same feat.

This is because Kemetic Shaman believe that the reason they are here is to perfect themselves by mimicking the Creator, who is the epitome of balance or Maa. In other words, most KS believe that when we have an illness, problem, etc. in our life, the physical problem reflects a spiritual imbalance. To live in balance is to live perfectly, and although one may not achieve perfection in life, one can still attempt. From this perspective, evil is anything done excessively, while good is anything that is done in moderation.  For this reason, it is not uncommon to find a host of other divinities on a Kemetic Shamans altar because they are all seen as forces working towards attaining and maintaining balance in an individual’s life.

 

Another thing to keep in mind is that most Kemetic Shamans are practical spiritual practitioners that focus on tangible results.  In order to achieve such goals, they are usually led by the Spirit, which could be the spirit of an enlightened ancestor, a spirit guide or a personal spirit guardian. Consequently, most of the KS beliefs and practices were not be found in a book. Most of their beliefs and practices are due to them communicating with their primary spirit and trial-and-error. When most KS speak about a subject it is because they have a had a personal experience with the subject they are speaking of. For instance, most KS would not advise that someone engage in a practice that they have not done themselves.

Because they are practical spiritual practitioners that are led by the Spirit, there are no spiritual rules, no religious dogma, no guidelines, etc. that the KS follow, except the ones that they establish for themselves. If something works they use it but, if something does not feel right, they abandon it.

On Monotheistic and Polytheistic Beliefs

It should be noted that Jews, Christians and Muslims will be quick to claim that adherents of Kemetic spirituality are idolaters because they have a narrow view of God.  This is because western religious beliefs is based upon the acceptance of an individual’s opinionated perception regardless if it is right or wrong.  The ambiguity within western religions is the main reason religion has created more division and authored wars among its followers and other faiths.  This is the reason women have been and are still persecuted in western religions because of the misunderstanding of Divine Feminine principle.

In Kemetic spirituality, God is understood to be the Creator of All Things, which means the essence of God exists in everyone regardless of their color, race, ethnicity, sex, and beliefs. This means that there is not just one way to understand who and what God is. In fact, knowing God is not based solely upon beliefs, but upon experiencing God for oneself. Since God is too abstract for our human mind to truly comprehend, Kemetic adherents believe that God has created numerous divinities, which all represent different facets of the Divine.   In other words, the so-called gods and goddesses are actually different aspects of the Divine who is the Source of Everything. That being said, Kemetic adherents do not worship idols, they simply focus on knowing all of the attributes of their Creator who they are mimicking since they are Children of God.

Overall, Kemetic spirituality is becoming increasingly popular because it actually delivers what it promises, which is an improved relationship with the Divine that allows one to see God within themselves. In other words, it delivers true peace of mind.

The Metaphysical Understanding behind the Black Panther film

20 02 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Ok. The reviews are in and Black Panther is making millions. By now, I am sure you have heard every critic and review available from the far right to the far left, but I have not heard anyone mention the metaphysical and spiritual significance of this film, so let me give my take on it.

For the record, after seeing the Black Panther in Captain America’s Civil War; I was stoked to see the Black Panther movie mainly because I like so many of us, was tired of seeing every Black hero portrayed as a bald headed man who just wants super strength. When BP made his appearance he was cool because his fighting style was unmatched. He reminded me of Blade another Black anti-hero whose skills were unmatched.

Of course, after the movie came out. There were all type of critics and reviews. Now, I am not going to spend a lot of time speaking about the obvious.  As you already know, the film was about the African born prince T’Challa who becomes the Black Panther, and the American born African N’Jadaka aka Erik Killmonger who becomes the Golden Jaguar.  That right there should be enough for you to see the blatant symbolism in this film. As many within my circle have clearly pointed out, T’Challa’s attitude and disposition is passive. He represents those idealistic Africans who come to the United States and are not familiar with systematic racism. While, Killmonger represents not only Africans descendants born in the United States, but symbolic of his mask every indigenous person such as the Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, and the Africans in South Africa, whose lives have been disrupted by systematic racism.

Another interesting thing that should be noted is that I am amazed of how many people dressed up for this movie and wore African attire, as if it were a costume. I mean I find it interesting that all it took for ppl to appreciate their African heritage was to see a fictional movie about Africa.Again, just stating the obvious.

Now, on to the esoterics because we are spiritually minded and we use everything for our empowerment.

So, the mineral used to power their suit and technology was called vibranium, which alludes to a mineral that vibrates. Whenever the Wakadans harnessed this energy they never used drills or mining tools but it was sort of like they channeled it and used visualizations to shape it.  This other thing about this mysterious metal was that it gave them a sort of dark purplish aura.  This is all reminiscent of the dark energy that I call KAMTA.

Remember, KAMTA is what the Kemetic people called the southern region of Kemet.  Most people believe that the Kemetic people called this region the Black Land (Kam – Black, Ta – Land) because of the annual inundation of the Nile River. But what most people forget is that the Kemetic people were the descendants of Kush, which means their ancestors dwelled in the Black Lands. In other words, the Black Lands is a metaphor referring to the nature of the spirit world that exists underground. This is clearly a plug to Afrikan spirituality which is largely based upon one’s relationship with their ancestors (and other spirits) who dwell beneath us and whose shoulders we stand upon. In fact, the imagery of the BP ancestral land should have strongly resonated with anyone familiar with Afrikan spirituality.

Copyright Marvel Studios 2018.It should be noted that the Black Lands, which is where the old black panthers resided were in the spirit world or ancestral land that T’Challa had to visit. Those familiar with the Kemetic shaman perspective of the Story of Osar will easily see in this case that T’Challa symbolizes Hru (Heru, Horus) communicating with the dead Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris).  Remember, Osar is called the Lord of the Underworld or the Lord of the Ancestral Realm, which is another reference to the Superconscious or the realm beyond our normal, habitual subconscious. It should be noted that Warriors Falls is reddish in color to symbolize hostility, which reminded me of TASETT – the Red Lands.

The other thing that should be noted is that the black panther’s suit emulated or engulfed him with this protective black power.  Many will see this dark mysterious liquid-like energy as melanin but I understood it to be the protective powers of our ancestors/spirits who dwell in KAMTA, which is the true source of power. The purple glow or the color purple symbolizes power which is used extensively in African magickal practices for dominance.  The color purple is also used to symbolize royalty while the color gold was used to symbolize just raw power.

Another hint that T’Challa is supposed to be a warrior form of Hru is that he had to drink the crushed-up heart shape plant. This heart shape plant is a reference to the Ab (Spiritual Heart) division of the Spirit, while some may see it relating to the heart chakra.

I know that a little people focused on the fight between T’Challa and Killmonger but if we choose to see it from a higher perspective. Metaphorically we can say that the fight between T’Challa and Killmonger was really a fight between Hru and Set or the battle between Shango and Ogun, or old traditions versus new traditions. Psychologically speaking it was a battle or fight between the middle self (conscious) and lower self (subconscious and ego-self).   This same story was borrowed by the early Christian writers and portrayed as the battle between Jesus and Satan when he goes to hell but unfortunately it is interpreted literally, so many people miss it.

I am sure that there are some more clues that can be drawn but this is the gist of it.

Now, there is one thing that we should all keep in mind which is that the original story was created by Stan Lee. In other words, this is Stan Lee’s interpretation of the Afrikan/Black experience.  If you watch Stan Lee’s interview he was inspired by the actual Black Panther Party.  From a spiritual perspective, I believe that the Spirit still worked through the cast and crew so that they could make a positive and empowering film.  Yes, it is not what we wanted but name one movie that is.  I have heard all of the debates and even participated in some but overall I thought it was a good movie considering what they had to work with. If you are really interested in Black Comics then support them. The City of Detroit has a Black Comicon every summer and I am sure there are other venues that exist.  Our experience has made way for us to have thousands upon thousands of stories. So don’t be fooled into thinking that b/c of our experience we do not have the right to talk about our holocaust. Help make this a positive and empowering moment.
