It’s Not Easy Being A God/Goddess (Why We Work With Spirits)

7 01 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I just wanted to offer you some words of encouragement that my spirit guide just shared with me and it is that it is not easy being a god or goddess. Just because you are on a spiritual path does not mean things get easier.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

In fact, life for human beings is hard because we are restricted to time and space. If you look at the Maa Aankh (above) and think about how we all incarnated to this physical plane (TASETT).  We see that as children, prior to incarnating to the physical plane, we came out of the spiritual realm (KAMTA) and from the Amun Ra moment, which means we were all, all knowing and powerful.  We could see everything and do anything because we did not have a physical body.  Then, as soon as we were physically born through the Khepera moment.  We slowly and surely lose all our wisdom and power as we grow older.  Then, as soon as we become fully accustomed to our physical body, we totally forget who we are and become conditioned to life in TASETT (the physical realm). So, the living have the physical means to make change but through the birthing and conditioning process lose the knowledge and wisdom to implement change.

For ancestral spirits and spirit guides, there existence isn’t that much better either because when people physical die. They are no longer fretted by their physical body and are able to express themselves and go anywhere freely because they have returned to their spiritual nature. But, in order to create physical change they need a body, so they lose the ability to do this. Not to mention the fact, that if they do not have anyone who remembers them, they do not receive offerings regularly.  So benevolent ancestors and spirit guides acquire the knowledge and wisdom to implement change but lack the physical means to do so.

For gods and goddesses it gets worse because most gods and goddesses were once upon a time human beings. But, after many successful incarnations they no longer need to enter the wheel of reincarnation.  When gods and goddesses return they must go through the birthing and conditioning stage, but because of their high and exalted status.   They are able to retain their knowledge and wisdom as benevolent ancestors and spirit guides, and use it beyond the Khepera moment. Since they have gone through the birthing and conditioning phase, unlike benevolent ancestor and spirit guides, they are able to implement physical change. Since gods and goddesses have the knowledge and wisdom of benevolent ancestral spirits and spirit guides, combined with the physical means of the living.  Most gods and goddesses only return to the physical realm when great calamities strikes and when they physically die. Gods and goddesses are remembered as learned men and women.

However, life for a god and goddess is hard because usually people do not recognize them when they are walking amongst them. As a result, most gods and goddesses are either robbed, wrongly persecuted and at times murdered by the very people they are trying to save.

This is the reason it is important for gods and goddesses not to get too attached to this physical world.

Therefore, we venerate our benevolent ancestors and spirit guides, so that they can share their knowledge and wisdom with us.  While we through our physical body make the necessary physical changes.

I say all this to say, that if you are experiencing any type of obstacle, know that it is meant to remind you that you are a god or goddess.  Remember who you are.

When Did You Realize You Were A God/Goddess?

16 12 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

When did you realize you were a god/goddess? What was the first successful magick/miracle you performed that convinced you of your divinity?

For me, although I had heard people all over recite Psalms 82:6  which states: “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” And, John 10:34 that says “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?”  I was not convinced that I was a god because I did not have any experience that supported this belief.

I didn’t realized I was a god until I studied the Maa Aankh cosmogram and understood that the flesh part of me, the physical part of my being, or the sahu (subconscious) part of my being is not the whole me.  Although I walk around and conduct my day-to-day affairs through my sahu out of habit, it is not only the physical manifestation of me but a very limited and minute part of my entire being. Hidden from physical sight is my more powerful and advanced spiritual self called my BA (Superconscious).

I remember that when it finally dawned on me that I am the Divine Being and that one part of my being is known (the sahu part), while the other part of me is an unknown mystery (the BA part).  It immediately made sense to me that the reason we all have so many problems in our life is because we try to solve our problems based upon our subconscious, habitual and conditioned sahu understanding personified as Set; instead of tapping into the Superconscious, infinite and unconditional BA personified as Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris).

In other words, the BA is the part of me that performs magick and miracles, which I will never understand because as soon as I comprehend it, that is when the magick and miracles ceases.

God allows magick to work, to show you that it is possible. – Unknown

I remember the first time, I tested my theory, I was unable to walk due to an illness and I had read a story of how a lady healed herself by promising to take Lazarus (Lazaro) statue’s crutches away from him.  Upon reading the story, automatically I heard thoughts of how this lady’s story was fake, silly and stupid. Immediately, all sorts of thoughts rushed my head about how ridiculous and impossible it would be to heal myself by taking away the crutches of a statue. I quickly identified this voice as my ego-self, my sahu personified as my Set, which only believes in what it sees and has been conditioned to accept as truth based upon my family and society’s standards.

When I did the little ritual to heal my body so that I could walk again by focusing on dancing and remembering that when the Yoruba orisha Babaluaiye was healed he danced out of sheer joy and excitement.  It was strange and weird to have the image of an old white man with crutches before me, but when I made the same promise to take away the crutches when I was healed. That is when it became apparent that the strangeness of the ritual triggered the Higher part of my being.  I know the ritual triggered it because I could feel my spidey-sense (scalp of my head) tingle.   That is when I realized that the BA does not distinguish between black and white images, which is something that a lot of people get hung up on because we like to see images of our selves instead of others. The BA understands that everything was Spirt and that Lazarus (Lazaro) symbolized that energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transformed like the soil of a cemetery becomes resting spot or container for departed souls. Therefore, Lazarus is Sokar, the Kemetic lord of the cemetery, which some also call Sekert (the feminine energy of death and resurrection), called Lazarus in Christianity also known as Omolu or Obaluwaye (Babaluaiye) the son of Nana Buluku.

Yes, my Higher Spirit knew this and even though I did not know how this miracle/magick was going to work.  This Higher part of my being understood it because as the Swiss psychiatrists stated, It is composed of “collective unconsciousness.”  This in strict laymen folk terms means “spirits” and when I issued a command  for the higher part of my being to accomplish the task of making me walk. I realized that it could work on multiple tasks all at the same time, while I live my day-to-day life dealing with other things. Metaphorically speaking, spirits and/or angels are working on my behalf based upon the command issued to them because they are an extension of my true Self.

That’s when it became clear, I am a god and later when I found myself running up and down the stairs because of an emergency. That’s when I realized that I created my own miracle/magick and therefore, I am the author of my own reality.

Family.  We have all been tricked into believing that we are powerless creatures of fate and that this physical reality that we have been born into is final. This thousand year old trick is due to us being taught that God is outside of our being and therefore even when we leave our birth religion.  We superimpose this same belief to other spiritual practices which results in us worshipping our ancestors and worshipping other entities outside of our being.

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

The Right Eye of Ra , which is associated with the Ra moment on the Maa Aankh. It is also known as the Solar Eye and corresponds to literal and physical sight, hence the failure to see abstract and spiritual concepts.

The truth is that we are powerless if we rely solely upon the sahu part of our being, which is totally based upon what we have physically learned and been conditioned to accept, hence the Right Eye of Ra.

We cannot change our current situation using the same mindset that created them, hence the reason Set is called the Lord of Chaos and Confusion.

The only way to change our reality is by relying upon our Higher Self.  When we rely upon the Higher part of our being, the mystical and magickal part of our being, the BA (Divine Spark) gives us access to the power of the Divine.

All we need to do to change our reality is impress upon our Higher Spirit what we desire and want.

The key that we need to remember is that we need to stop worrying and thinking about how it works and accept that it works. You don’t know how electricity works yet, you are able to use it. The same approaches needs to be taken in regards to our BA.

We need to stop trying to convince and prove to other people that it works and just let it work. Magick is our cultural technology, which we have been taught to be ashamed of because others don’t understand it.

Family. If other people don’t believe it, so what. It is not our job to convince them or try to convert them to our way because our spirituality is not their (or anyone else’s for that matter) religion.

It is your religion, which means all that matters is that you believe it works.

All that matters is that you find a way to temporarily shut your sahu (subconscious) off so that you can access your BA (Superconscious).

 This means work your maa (truth, way)!

Three Powerful Ways to Use the Kemetic Kongo Cross for Spiritual Healing

10 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

When the Africans were kidnapped and brought to the Americas, contrary to popular belief, the Africans taken to North America did not lose their culture. What the Africans taken to North America loss was the philosophy and theology behind their cultural practices, which regressed into a superstition.Never Forget

“Superstition” Luisah Teish author of Jambalaya: The Natural Woman’s Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals defines as “…a belief or practice whose origin and context has been lost to us and/or is in conflict with the beliefs of the dominating culture”.

So when I learned that the first Africans brought to the Americas and North America were from the Kongo-Angolan region, and that remnants of their culture survived through slavery such as: 1) the cultural practice of placing images of deceased loved ones in the western direction of the home; 2) the belief that ancestors visit us in our dreams and reincarnate as “old souls” through our children; and. 3) Most African Americans have a common understanding of the crossroad concept, and much more.  I was very excited to learn about the Kongo religion in hopes of learning about my loss heritage.

Kongo Cross used for Ventilation during Underground Railroad at First African Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia.

But, because the Kongo-Angolan people were the first of the Africans to be brought to the Americas, their region was also the most devastated through slavery, imperialism and later ravaged by various civil wars. Consequently, this meant that most of the Old Kongo cultural beliefs were either lost and/or obsolete.

Thankfully, understanding that the Kongo-Angolan people were Bantu speaking people and that the Bantu or Ba-Ntu migrated from Kemet, helped me to understand my ancestral heritage from a more profound perspective. Through one-ton-one correspondence between the Kemetic and Kongo traditions I discovered a cosmogram, which became known as the Maa Aankh.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The Maa Aankh cosmogram is based upon the remnants of the Bantu-Kongo spirituality that survived in North America that has been syncretized with Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) philosophy.  Like most cosmograms or medicine wheels, the Maa Aankh can be interpreted in numerous ways. The general understanding is that our universe is composed of two worlds or two lands and they are: above the imperfect world of the living called TASETT (the Red Lands or the Land of Set/Set-an and Ku Nseke in KiKongo), and below. The perfect world of dead called KAMTA (the Black Lands also known as the Land or Kingdom of Osar/Osiris, hence the Underworld and Ku Mpemba/the Land of White in KiKongo). These two lands are divided by a thin veil called Nyun, but are bridged together through Maa.

Surrounding these two lands are four discs symbolizing the four attributes of Ra (the Life Force) and the four moments of the Sun: Khepe Ra (Sunrise or Kala in KiKongo), Ra (Midday or Tukula in KiKongo), Ra Atum (Sunset or Luvemba in KiKongo) and Amun Ra (Midnight or Musoni in KiKongo).

The Four Ras also signify:

  • The Evolution of the Soul: Khepera (Sunrise/Birth), Ra (Midday/Life), Ra Atum (Sunset/Death) and Amun Ra (Midnight/Rebirth)
  • The Four Directions: Khepera (East), Ra (North), Ra Atum (West) and Amun Ra (South)
  • The Four Seasons: Khepera (Spring), Ra (Summer), Ra Atum (Fall) and Amun Ra (Winter)
  • The Four Elements: Khepera (Air), Ra (Fire), Ra Atum (Earth), and Amun Ra (Water)
  • The Four Phases of Life: Khepera (intellectual), Ra (physical), Ra Atum (emotional) and Amun Ra (spiritual)
  • The Four Stages of Life: Khepera (infancy), Ra (adolescences), Ra Atum (elder-hood) and Amun Ra (ancestors)
  • The Four Temperaments/Humors: Khepera (Black Bile), Ra (Blood), Ra Atum (Yellow Bile) and Amun Ra (Phlegm)
  • The Four Sons of Hru (Heru or Horus): Khepera (Tuamatef protects the stomach and guide the dead), Ra (Hapi protects the lungs and navigated the dead), Ra Atum (Qebehsenuf protects the intestines and refreshed the dead) and Amun Ra (Amset protects the liver and was used to revive the corpse of the dead.)

And there are other correlations that can be made as well such as the stages of consciousness,  family dynamics, etc. but to mention them all would take us beyond the scope of this post.

The center of the Maa Aankh represents a culmination of one’s spiritual and physical gifts, one’s physical and spiritual balance, and/or one’s ability to ascend from the Four Ra to an enlightened position in the center.

Therefore, there are numerous ways you can use the Maa Aankh all depending on what feels right to you.  However, below are three powerful ways that I have benefited from the Maa Aankh.

The Maa Aankh as a Guide for Spiritual Progress

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.)

“Live in the moment” and “Understand your past, so you can determine your future” are all relevant sayings when it comes to contemplating on the moments of the Maa Aankh.  To perform this simple exercise simply think about which moment resonates with you the most and your spiritual spiritual progress. For instance, whenever I begin to see a lot of problems (financial, health, family, career, etc.) occurring in my life. Depending on the severity, I can look on the Maa Aankh and see that I am entering the Ra Moment.  Since the Ra Moment corresponds to the youthfulness or adolescences, which is fully of rashness and folly.  The Ra Moment signifies where most of our problems occur due to social conditionings, peer pressure and the lack of spiritual insight or wisdom, hence the Right Eye of Ra.  Therefore, during this time I am reminded that I need to seek wisdom and spiritual insight or an oracle as signified by the polar opposite to get a full or holistic picture.  (The polar opposite of the Ra Moment is the Amun Ra Moment).

 

The Maa Aankh as a Crossroad

The Maa Aankh naturally symbolizes two intersecting points thus making a crossroad where two worlds meet.  From this perspective, the Maa Aankh can be found anywhere because it represents where the known (TASETT) meets the unknown (KAMTA).  For instance, the Maa Aankh can be found where a town meets the forest/woods, the city meets the cemetery or the city meets a park, a beach shore meets the ocean, your home meets the outside of your home, and even psychologically where your subconscious meets your Superconscious.  Therefore, the threshold between these two “lands” is the powerful center, which can be used to say your prayers, to meditate, place offerings such as candles and/or express your gratitude.  Simply draw or trace it on the ground and use it as you feel.

The Maa Aankh as a Spiritual Guide

However, I personally prefer to use the Maa Aankh as a spiritual guide alongside the Story of Osar based upon African tribal history, metaphysics and spiritualism.

To understand this perspective we need to go back to a time before Kemet was a united kingdom and consisted of warring tribes. From this perspective, the Story of Osar is not a mythological legend consisting of numerous gods and goddesses, but a metaphorical story between two opposing tribal leaders.

According to legend, before Kemet was united into one kingdom, it was divided into two regions and governed by two brothers:  Upper Kemet in the southern region was symbolized by the white Hedjet crown and governed by the eldest brother Osar.  While Lower Kemet or the northernmost part of the region, which was symbolized by the red Deshret crown was ruled by the youngest brother Set.

Now, at the time when these two chieftain ruled, the people of Kemet were constantly at war with one another. Until one day Osar dreamt of ways of uniting the two lands into one country, which led him to developing spiritual teachings (or some say a religion).  After applying these teachings, Osar traveled the country teaching all of his countrymen how to live in peace with one another, and the science of agriculture, which he learned from his wife/sister Oset (Isis). Consequently, the teachings of Osar spread like wildfire and in a relatively short time, brothers ceased warring with one another.  Osar later became king and he was loved by everyone for unifying the two lands and bringing peace and prosperity to the region. All were grateful to Osar except for Set, who was so envious of Osar that he plotted and killed the first king of Kemet, then usurped the throne. 

Everyone feared Set’s tyrannical rule except for Oset (Aset) who fled and magically conceived Osar’s heir, Hru.  When Hru came of age, he challenged Set for the throne but was unable to defeat his father’s youngest brother. Then, in one critical battle, Set managed to gouge Hru’s eye, thereby forcing the young prince to barely escape with his life.  Hru fled to see his father’s old friend and vizier Djahuti, who repaired the young prince’s left eye perfectly.

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

The next time Hru engaged in battle with Set, he swiftly and quickly defeated him and forced his uncle to surrender.  Even after being defeated militarily Set, refused to yield and campaigned against Hru by claiming that he was not Osar’s legitimate heir.  As a result, the campaign was so successful that a tribunal was convened to decide who would rule the kingdom, but after hearing the both sides.  The tribunal still could not come to a decision for some favored Hru while others ruled in favor of Set. Finally, Djahuti made it possible for Osar to speak from beyond the grave.  After which Osar verified that Hru was his heir and encouraged the tribunal to rule truthfully because he established a kingdom in the Underworld where he was now the head judge.  Upon hearing Osar’s testimony the tribunal ruled in Hru’s favor and awarded him the white and red Pschent crown.

There are numerous ways that this story can be interpreted but my understanding of the Story based upon the Maa Aankh is that: 1) Hru defeated Set in battle because he had his spiritual eye repaired, and. 2) Hru reclaimed his inheritance because of his ancestor, Osar.

Therefore, the Maa Aankh can be used as a spiritual guide for working with one’s ancestors and spirits. It indicates that the relationship between the living and the dead should be more like a business partnership, where both the living and the spirits benefit. The Maa Aankh explains the difference between the living and the spirits of the dead by indicating that the living are limited because of the physical laws of time and space. Meaning although we can experience life (eating food, pleasures of friendship, sex, etc.), our physical bodies are a trap that prevent us growing spiritually, because we cannot see beyond the physical. Hence the reason we have so many problems in our life is because we lack insight and wisdom, and must rely solely upon our intellect and what we have previously learned.

On the flip side, since the spirits of the dead have the ability to see anything and everything because they are not limited by the physical laws of time and space due to not having a physical body.  However, the lack of a physical body prevents them from truly experiencing life and thus spiritually growing.

However, by forming an alliance or partnership between the living and the spirit of the dead, the living are able to use the insight and wisdom of the spirit of the dead to improve their life, while the spirit of the dead are able to use the physical body of the living to spiritually evolve.  In other words, neither the living or the spirit of the dead are more superior than the other. Both, the living and the spirit of the dead are on equal footing are suppose to profit the relationship, hence the relationship between Hru and Osar.

By using the Maa Aankh as a spiritual guide for working with spirits, we can see that many (if not most) of the spirits that give churchgoers the “gift of the Holy Ghost” via speaking-in-tongues, etc. are really trickster spirits taking advantage of peoples’ ignorance. Proof that these are trickster spirits can be seen in the fact that no true wisdom or spiritual power is being offered, which is the reason as soon as people leave Sunday worship they lose their Holy Ghost and return to their ill-behavior ways.  Another sign that trickster spirits are leeching off of uninformed churchgoers is that the physical church is steadily growing while communities they serve are steadily seeking in despair.

At the same time, benevolent spirits of the dead will only approach the living if they believe that they can profit from the relationship and offer spiritual insight in return. This is the reason everyone does not have a La Madama or Uncle/Nkisi (Bucket) spirit guide. By using the Maa Aankh as a spiritual guide, you are able to set the rule between you and your spirits that your relationship is basically a “quid pro quo” meaning “I give you something and expect to get something in return (because that’s Maa)”. Therefore, every time you pray, meditate or do a ritual, you should make an offering in return.

The Double Pschent Crown

The Double White & Red Pschent Crown

When you are working with a higher spirits you will sense flashes of insight as if suddenly the “light is coming on”, which symbolizes the white Hedjet crown of Osar.

It was through working with my ancestors in this manner that I learned that Osar corresponds to the Superconscious or Higher Self and Set to our subconscious or lower self.

So, these are some of the ways that I have truly benefitted from using the Maa Aankh. Hopefully, these methods can help you in your spiritual road as well.

What is the Real Difference between Magick and Spirituality?

4 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, I remember when I first started on this spiritual path, like many people from a Christian background, I was immediately attracted to religious practices that my parents and other Christians frowned upon. For instance, I went out my way to visit the brightly colored candle shop in Detroit on 7 Mile that my parents discouraged me from doing, as we drove to and from church. I went out of my way to talk to actual authentic rootworkers whom I was told by religious people were either strange and/or evil.  I went out of my way to talk to practitioners in Lukumi (Santeria) and Palo Mayombe because Christians told me that they worshipped the devil. I have even learned from people who practice both the Brazilian Candomble and Macumba.  But, I followed the Kemetic path because my spirit inspired me to do so and informed me that the Ancient Egyptians were not idol worshippers. Basically, a large portion of my spiritual understanding simply was the result of me rebelling against my conditioned upbringing.

But, I remember there were a few families whom I met on this path that turned their back on traditional/spiritual way.  For instance, I remember I met a priestesses whom after years of struggle, returned to the church to save her marriage and unite her family.  In another family I knew where the children were raised in the spiritual tradition, two of the children when they got older did not want to have anything to do with the tradition.  The youngest child converting to Christianity, condemned the practice altogether and as far as I know, is actively persecuting his parents for their involvement in the African derived tradition.

Exu Marabo and Exu with Pomba Gira on Macumba Altar

All of this really made me wonder why would people leave our traditional way for the religion of our oppressor.  At first I thought that maybe it was because they were not serious about the tradition and saw it as a fad, but that didn’t explain why the family that was raised in an African tradition would turn their back on it.  Then, I thought that maybe it was because these people do not know their history but, that response did not explain why the priestess I knew converted back to the religion to save her marriage and family. Then, I met my godfather, a practicing spiritist, and a member of the Abakua Society who had been practicing Lukumi all of his life in Cuba before migrating to the States.

I remember asking him a very serious, yet silly question based upon all that I had read about African religions and traditions.  I asked him, “Why is it that all they do in Santeria is do magic?”

And, he told me something (in Spanish) that I would never forget, which was that “Lukumi es muy espiritual pero debes conocer tu Manera,” which translates to “Lukumi is very spiritual but you have to know your Way.

I have spent a lot of time writing about La Manera or the Way because it is what the Kemetic sages called Maa, which is not simply about the law, the truth, balance, etc.  It is about your Law, your Truth, what Balances you, etc.

It came to me some time later that my question was silly but a good one because the reason people convert back to the religion of their oppressor is because they do not have Knowledge of Self.

Knowledge of Self is not just knowing that you are god and a goddess and running around saying “Peace God/Goddess!”

Knowledge of Self is about knowing that your lower self or your ego-self is dominating your life, dominating the way you think, and controlling the way you talk and behave.  If you are having any problems in your life, it can be traced back to your lower self because you have been conditioned to follow it.  In other words, you are in the habit of listening to this part of your being. Things seem gloom in this world because people are controlled by their lower self but, there is an alternative way.

We do not have to follow our lower self. We can have a better life. We can have a healthy life. We can have a loving marriage and healthy children. We can have a prosperous business.  We do not have to live in tyranny of our lower self.  We can reach out and connect with our Higher Self with the understanding that we have to put whatever we want in the Higher Self’s hands.

This is where the magick comes into play. It is magical and mysterious how our Higher Self or Superconscious works, which is the reason the old biblical writers called it God, then later these Christians called it Jesus.  But, they got the idea from our Kemetic Ancestors who personified the Higher Self or Superconscious as Osar.  They did not worship Osar.  They realized that it was our Higher Self, which is an individual’s True God.

So, if I declare “Thank you for perfect health” over and over before I go to sleep, when I wake, when I am driving, when I am taking a shower, and basically every time I get a chance. Eventually, my lower (subconscious) self is going to hand this declaration to my Higher (Superconscious) Self. And, as soon as I forget that I made the declaration, that’s when my miracle or magic will manifest in the physical.

That’s it! I know it seems to easy and good to be true, but magick is simply programming your entire Spirit (Higher and Lower Self). Now, for some people repeating declarations does not get it for them, so they prefer to chant a mantra, while others may choose to inscribe it on a candle.  Still others might find it better to create a sigil, which are all methods discussed in the The Kamta Primer.  It does not matter what method you use because they are all techniques used to program your Spirit or do magic.

But, most people come into this based upon a warped understanding. As a result, we spend a whole lot of time focusing on the technique or the tools, instead of on the nuts and bolts, which is all about our Higher Self.

Family. This is what “they” want us to do. “They” want us to argue back and forth about on what technique is best.  “They” want us to see all of this hell occurring in the streets and be discouraged by it and/or think we are powerless.  When all we have to do is declare it and allow our Spirit(s) to deal with it.

“They” want us to be confused about who we are. “They” want us to convert back to their social control but it is not working, which is the reason you are reading this post and others like it.

Don’t get caught up in the trap of thinking it is all about magick.  It is all about staying connected to our Higher Self, our Osar.

Mathematically We Are Divine Beings

3 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know one of the things that has always amazed me about the Kemetic sages was their love of mathematics and the need for everything to make sense. Anyone who has studied the Kemetic philosophy and their metaphysics will know exactly what I am talking about.

For instance, did you know that the Kemetic Eye of Hru is composed of the following fractions?

Mathematical Eye Copyright 2016 Derric Moore

Did you know that each of these fractions that make up a fraction of the Eye corresponds to a physical aspect of the human being from the smallest to largest? (Ok. Math Review. The top number of the fraction is called the numerator and the bottom number the denominator.  The larger the denominator the smaller the fraction).  Therefore, from least to greatest:

  • 1/64 corresponds to the Sense of Touch symbolized by one leg standing on the ground.
  • 1/32 corresponds to the Sense of Taste the curve tail symbolizes a stalk of grain thus referring to taste.
  • 1/16 corresponds to the Sense of Hearing symbolized by an arrow pointing to the ear.
  • 1/8 corresponds to Thought symbolized by raised eyebrow.
  • 1/4 corresponds to the Sense of Sight symbolized by the pupil.
  • 1/2 corresponds to the Sense of Smell symbolized by the nose.

This means that what we refer to as reality is based largely upon our Sense of Smell (1/2) and Sight (1/4) than upon what we actually physically experience (1/64).  What we imagine and smell has a greater influence then what we physically experience, hence the Universe is Mental.  The ability to smell and see are actually the oldest functions of the human brain. In other words, this reveals from the Kemetic perspective the evolution of consciousness. Pretty amazing stuff right?

Did you know that when you add all of these fractions together the sum is 63/64? Pretty cool.

But, what is the missing 1/64 fraction to make it a 64/64 = 1 whole?

Those familiar with the Kemetic Story of Osar know that the missing 1/64 is intuition.  According to the Story of Osar, Hru was unable to defeat his evil uncle Set because Set had managed to gouge Hru’s eye out.  In desperation Hru fled to find Djahuti who repaired his eye perfectly. After which, our hero was able to defeat Set on the battlefield but he was unable to fully reclaim to crown until his father Osar spoke on his behalf and the tribunal ruled in Hru’s favor.

The missing 1/64 represents all of the spirits, which also contribute to the evolution of human consciousness.

The Eye of Hru also known as the Left Eye of Ra or Lunar Eye of Ra, corresponds to the intuitive and spiritual aspect of our being, hence insight.

What this means is that we all must go through some ordeal (fight with Set symbolized as a journey through TASETT), which will lead us to brush shoulders with all of the spirits (in KAMTA), so that we can gain wisdom.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

If we refuse to gain wisdom from our spirits, we will never get a holistic view of life or achieve Maa (Balance, Truth, Order, Justice, Righteousness, etc.) in our life. We will always be dominated by the Right Eye of Ra or Solar Eye, which corresponds to the literal and material aspect of life.

Therefore, it is important that we never forget our spirits because they help us to gain insight or to see the whole picture. Remember, they do not have a physical body so they can see things that we are not able to physically see, which gives us a better understanding of who we are.

God’s Purpose is Not to Fix IT for You (The Misconceptions About Salvation)

In this day and age, there are a lot of people talking about becoming or being more spiritual but they overlook one of the most quoted biblical scriptures and simplest, yet most difficult practices, which is to “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God.”

The reason most of us overlook this scripture and misinterpret the practice is because we have all been taught that God is a tyrannical deity who stands billions of miles over earth and hurls thunderbolts at the wicked. Sidebar: Yeah, most people still do not believe that they are really worshipping an aspect of the Greek god Zeus but that’s another story.

Consequently, because of our view of God we have been taught that God can fix anything and everything, so we always put God last. That’s right! We have been taught to make every decision and do everything without God, and when things do not go right…

Pray and beg God to fix it.

For instance, spend all of your money on frivolous purchases but when you do not have any money. Pray to God to fix it.

Misuse your body by eating whatever you like, ingesting whatever substances you desire, want,  and abusing your body with lack of physical exercises.  Then, when you are diagnosed with an illness. Pray to God to fix it.

Talk to your love one anyway you want. Disrespect him or her publicly and privately. Cheat behind his or her back. Then, when he or she says, “I love you but I cannot live with you.” Now, it is time to, let the church say, “Pray to God to fix it.”

According to Greek mythology Zeus is a rapist, a terrible husband, horrible father, murderous son, a deceitful brother, and an egotistical grandson, yet people still don’t understand why America is the way it is.

Family. If God could fix everything, why doesn’t God fix everything and everyone anyway? Is God bias?  Put aside the childish idea that God has a plan to save everyone by having everyone experience misery. Again, that is the greek god Zeus who deliberately places hardships in peoples’ paths solely for entertainment or to be “saved.” So, first lets understand that it is not God but god (Zeus) that most people worship.

The Supreme Being or Creator of us all is the creator of everything.  This means that the Creator is not bias, which is the reason the same air that fills our lungs also fills the lungs of our enemies.  The reason the Creator does not save is because it is the Creator who is Perfect and we are striving for perfection. Thus, “saving us” does us a big disservice because it does help us to grow, mature and learn our lesson. Imagine saving a child learning how to walk from falling every time, they would never learn how to get back up after falling.

This means that the god most people are worshipping is not only hindering them but trying to keep them in an infantile mind state, by saving some and not all.  This of course is a fallacy, because only you can save yourself and this is done by going within instead of seeking god outside of our being.

The reason we all have made this same grave error (even those of us in the spiritual community) is because we were taught to worship a bias, tyrannical deity outside of our being.  We were never taught that the true Kingdom of God is within and it is our Higher Self. Since we were not taught that the Kingdom of God is within and it is our Higher Self, we ignore all of the gut wrenching impulses that our Higher Self gives us throughout life.

If we were taught to communicate with our Higher Self properly, then it would have told us that it might not be wise to buy that lava lamp.  It would have told us that s/he is crazy and will fill your life with all sorts of drama. If we knew how to communicate with our Higher Self, we would have heard it telling us “Don’t consume anymore or you are going to be hugging the porcelain bowl later.”

The scripture should have read “Seek ye first the Kingdom (of God) within” and then proceed, which means talk to your Higher Self and ask is the choice or decision you are about to make regarding your money a wise one.  Ask your Higher Self before consuming and/or ingesting anything if it is right for you.  Ask your Higher Self, will the individual you are attracted to be good for you and then, ask it to guide you through the relationship if so.

Remember our Higher Self is wise, omnipotent and omnipresent, which is the reason our Kemetic ancestors symbolized it as Osar (Osiris).  Our Osar is always near and ready to serve but it will not intercede on our behalf unless called upon to do so or an extreme emergency. Most people call upon their Osar only during an emergency because we have been conditioned to be reactive, but our ancestors achieved greatness by choosing to be proactive.

Here are some simple ways to be proactive in the morning:

Upon waking up in the morning repeat the following declaration (as many times as you like), “Thank you for a peaceful, fun, productive and financially prosperous day.”

This simple declaration affirms that you are going to have “a peaceful, fun, productive and financially prosperous day.”  You don’t know how it is going to happen but you are affirming that your Osar will make it occur. I must say, I have practiced this and situations that I thought were going to be difficult had mysteriously smoothed themselves out. Note, results will vary based upon an individual’s conditionings, which is the reason when affirmations are not applied correctly they have varying results.  By repeating (or chanting) the declaration prior to getting out of bed causes the command to be more receptive because you are in twilight trance state. Now, if you cannot chant the declaration when you get up, no worries. You can chant it anytime you are doing some menial tasks like taking a shower, washing dishes, doing chores, driving, etc. because these are all times that our Higher Self can speak to us.

Another way to be proactive is as I stated earlier, talk to your Osar before making a choice or decision. Your Osar will usually answer back quickly but if you are not receiving a quick response it is because your stress and worry about the situation at hand is preventing the answer from coming through clearly. Simply relax, which is usually hard to do when you are in crisis so instead, meditate, take a shower, wash some dishes, do some chores, take a drive, go to sleep, etc. because these are all times that your Osar can speak to you without being interrupted by your lower self or Set.  This is the reason many spiritual disciplines recommend that you do a charitable act so that you can shift your focus off of your lower self or Set, hence the reason Osar is also the Lord of Unity.

If we were a little more proactive, we would easily find our self being less and less reactive, which means that we would not be so easily swayed by our emotions.

The Purpose of Deity Altars

1 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

There are a lot of people who are beginning to awake to this path and the one question I get all the time from newcomers is “Can we put the altars together?” or “Can we mix our altars with our ancestors and other spirits (deities), etc.?” Before answering this, I have to remind you of the difference between religion and spirituality.

We must remember that religion is a systematic practice that has been done over the years.  By a group of people in devotion to an entity in order to receive a particular outcome. For instance, many Christians believe that in order for Jesus/God to protect and bless them, they must attend church on a regular basis and strive to live a life absent of sin.

But, spirituality is a way of life that may or may not consists of a set of practices that focuses on aligning an individual with their Higher Self or Osar to master specific lessons in life. Spirituality is not about worshipping an entity but becoming the entity. To comprehend this perspective, it must be understood that we are all born with specific temperaments, talents, behaviors, etc., which most will can assign to a specific zodiac.  For instance, I was born under the Pisces zodiac sign and I exhibit most (if not all) of the Pisces traits of a man such as being trustworthy, loyal, sensual, psychic, attracted to the occult, etc but I also have some of the negative traits such as being smug and sarcastic, etc.

Now these are all traits that have helped me to survive but there are 11 other zodiac signs, which means that I cannot behave like a Piscean man all the time.  If I am smug to my wife, she will become highly irritated and I might find myself sleeping on the couch. If I am smug or sarcastic to my daughter, she might misinterpret my behavior and indiscriminately imitate it or think that men are supposed to act this way. So, what I have to do is learn how to transcend my zodiac. Said another way, overcome my natal personality, ego-self or Set, which is a bulk of what spirituality is about.  There are numerous ways that this can be accomplished but one of the ways is through erecting altars.

So, when an altar is built by those who are on the religious path, they will recommend that you do not combine or mix the energies because they are following the rules of their religion. Remember, religion is focused on worshipping a particular entity.  The reason these rules must be followed to the letter is usually because this is how the founders of that religion established that religion. For instance, in some denominations of Christianity, devotees are not supposed to have any images of any other divinity. Most Christian adherents will state that this is because it is considered idolatry.  The occult truth is that this is one of the rules that devotees of the entity most Christians refer to as “God” must follow to receive God’s blessings.

Mock altar to Npu (Anubis is the Kemeitc Guardian of the dead and roads.

Now, if you are setting up an altar from a spiritualist perspective.  You are free to combine and mix the energies because the entities on the altar symbolize a different aspect of your Higher Self. Remember, the Higher Self is another term for what the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung called the collective unconsciousness, which is compose of numerous archetypes. Therefore, when you choose to erect an altar to a particular entity, what you are really doing is choosing to become that entity. For instance, if a man wants to muster up some courage to talk to his boss about being considered for a promotion or raise. Then, he might erect an altar space for Hru (Horus). He would purchase red and white items and also Hru totems such as horses, bulls, rams, etc., He may meditate on these items or simple arrange them in a way that he sees fit until one day Hru seeing his commitment and devotion decide to send the man a sign synchronistically (I know I just made up that word).  Such as one of the man’s ancestors visits with him in his dreams or he happens to watching television and suddenly have an epiphany, etc. There are numerous ways that the spirits can interact with us but they are all meant to help us to become them so that we can achieve a goal, not worship them.

Therefore, if the same guy decides that he wants to work with another energy like Oset, but does not have the space, or work with Npu he can add items for Oset or Npu on the same altar space. The idea that the Hru and Oset are going to get upset because they are sharing space is basically your lower-self talking because the subconscious is extremely logical and structured.

Now eventually when you have the space you would want to build a separate altar space for them but this is only because your relationship with the energy/deity will grow and will require it. Again, it is not necessary because you are not worshipping the entity. You are worshipping yourself-to be exact your Higher Self. You are invoking the entity and trying to become them in your walking life to accomplish specific tasks.

It is important you always keep this in mind the spiritual purpose of working with deities so that you do not lose sight and fall into the religious trap and find yourself worshipping an entity outside of yourself.
