How to Defeat the “hidden enemy/hidden hand”

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.

Remembering Haiti and the Real Revolution

10 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Does It Really Mean to be a God on Earth?

21 03 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, the other day I was watching the 1984 comedy Ghostbusters on Netflix, about three parapsychology professors who created a business removing ghosts.  In the climax of the movie, the Ghostbusters are trying to defeat the main antagonist Zuul, who is said to be a demigod of destruction and chaos. Before Zuul shoots lightning out at the Ghostbusters, Zuul asks “Are you a god?”  to which one of the Ghostbusters (Ray) responds “No.” Immediately afterwards, Zuul sends bolts of lightning to the Ghostbusters nearly pushing them off the ledge of the skyscraper.  Thus, prompting Winston to say, “Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god. You say Yes!”

Aside from the fact that it was Winston (of all people) who tells Ray to tell a demigod that he is something that he is not, this made me wonder why didn’t Ray answer that he was a god. Then, it came to me that it was because in Christianity (and Islam) we are taught that whenever we are in a bind. To call out to God for help because we are God’s humble and pitiful creatures that need saving.

Where did this idea that human beings are lowly creatures that need saving come from? Well, remember the biblical story about the Children of Israel and how they fled Egypt. If you grew up in the west, you have read and heard this story numerous times.  We are captivated by the Exodus story because the Children of Israel are depicted as the underdog against the mighty Egyptian army. We are told according to biblical accounts that the Children of Israel cried out to God to save them and the Lord parted the Red Sea, thus allowing the Children of Israel to pass and drowning the Egyptian army.

Now, never mind the fact that the Exodus story is a complete fabrication because there is no historical proof that the Kemetic people had slaves, no archaeological evidence that slave labor existed or was used to build edifices, and there was no massive exodus. In fact, as I mentioned in Why God Does Not Answer Your Prayers, the word pharaoh is not a title given to the Egyptian rulers, but was the name of one of foreign dictators when the Hyskos ruled Kemet. In other words, he was not even Kemetic but Semitic meaning this was a Semitic king who was being harsh to other Semitic people.

But, the real surprise is that according to Jewish writers this is not a true account of how the Exodus story occurred. According to Jewish scholars (particularly Kabbalist) when the Children of Israel stood before the Red Sea with the encroaching army on their heels, they cried out to God to save them, and God replied, “Why are you calling me?”

In other words, God was telling the Children of Israel, “You are made in my image, so use your divine powers to get out of the mess you are in.” And, through the Children of Israel’s power, they parted the Red Sea, not God.

Again, the story is completely fictional and it was created to teach very valuable lessons to young Jewish children who were feeling pitied. But, imagine if you were taught like Jewish children, that God does not save you but God has empowered you to save yourself? Imagine if you were taught that you can do whatever is humanly possible because you were made in the image of God? Imagine if you were taught that by working together with your own people you can create miracles; how different your life would be?  Could you imagine the impact this truth would have upon your life?

Yes, it would have been astronomical and this is why we need to understand that spirituality is psychological.  The main reason many of us are not able to accomplish our goals in life is because we have been taught to believe that our savior exists outside of us.  In other words, we have been taught to be totally dependent upon others outside of us even if they do not share our best interests because we are not worthy.

Therefore, correct this flaw by ridding yourself of this destructive belief about your divinity. Instead of asking for God (and others) to pity you, remind yourself that you are an exceptional human being made in the image of the Divine. In other words, remind yourself that you are Child of Osar, a Hru (hero, Hrw, Heru, Horus). The only one who can save you is you by aligning yourself with your Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris, or Higher Self within).

When you align yourself with your Osar, all types of new ideas, thoughts, miracles, etc. occur because remember, your Osar (Higher Self is your Superconscious). If you will recall, this is the part of our being that is responsible for making magick and miracles occur according to all the great inventors, scientists, mathematicians, etc., which our Kemetic ancestors created an elaborate culture based upon.

Since most of us are creatures of habit, meaning we are strongly influenced by the subconscious (lower self) part of our being, it is best to surround our self with images that remind us of our divinity. This will help us because the problem that most of us have about our divinity is not that do not know we are made in the image of God.  It is that when we get in a pinch, we forget we were created to be gods and goddesses.  When we have obstacles and problems that force us to tap into our divine power, this is the setting sun moment illustrated on the Maa Aankh as the Ra Atum moment and on the Kongo dikenga (or Kongo Cross) as Luvemba.  It indicates that we are at a pivotal moment in our life where the dying of the old and rebirth of the new occurs.

In other words, the only way to be reborn is to face your fears but if you keep crying for someone (or some thing) to save you as Christian storytellers have suggested. We will never be truly saved or delivered.  The only way we can be saved is by always keeping in mind that we are made in the image of the Divine, which means God will always have your back.

What it means to be a god or goddess on earth is someone who has no fear and invokes the power of God within to change situations at will.  They are proactive, not reactive and en route to becoming immortal.

Therefore, instead of crying out to God (and others) to save us, it is best to repeat “There is no one coming to save you Hru because God sent you.”

KAMTA: Recreating the Real Black Church

24 01 2018
Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.
I have had some people ask how I discovered Kamta and was able to make all the connections. Well, all I can say is that it was because of my ancestors. I like a lot of people had read and studied Kemetic history, lore and spirituality for some years but I was not able to make any headway. Then, things changed when I began working with my ancestors and asking them to guide me in my understanding (See: How to Distinguish between the Higher Self, Ancestors, Spirit Guides and lower self).
What they showed me was that when the first Africans were brought to North America, they were taken from the Kongo-Angolan region and forced to work as indentured servants.  Since the Kongo ruler had voluntarily converted to Christianity prior to the advent of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, most of the people taken from the Kongo-Angolan region were either Christian or at least familiar with the Christian faith and already had a working syncretism with their indigenous beliefs in place. Consequently, because these Africans had Africanized Christianity, it is believed by some scholars that the Portuguese and Spaniards called these Africans the pejorative term Judio (pronounced hoo-dee-oh) which is Spanish for Jewish referring to the Jews who continued to practice the Old Religion (Judaism) even after learning about Jesus Christ. The term judio was later corrupted in the English language and became what we call hoodoo.
Although there are some authors who attempt to trace the term hoodoo to an African source, it should be noted that most African Americans never used the term to refer to their spiritual practice because in the African mindset.  Hoodoo was considered a form of witchcraft, which was a forbidden practice. The term is totally a European creation that was used to describe early African American spirituality and in particular the Black Church.

The Kongo Cross

So, when the descendants from the Kongo-Angolan region arrived in North America they were stripped of all of their possessions.  However, they managed to bring with them their dikenga commonly called today the Kongo Cross, which is a unique Kongo cosmogram that mapped the universe. Although these early Africans in North America were not able to syncretize their beliefs and practices under the guise of the Catholic saints as their kinfolk had done in Brazil, Cuba, Haiti and other parts of South America. Through the Kongo Cosmogram or Kongo Cross, our early ancestors managed to use the Kongo cosmogram to syncretize their beliefs with the Protestant Christian faith in order to create their own religion.
They were able to accomplish this feat because the Kongo cosmogram like most medicine wheels could be interpreted in numerous ways depending upon perspective. For instance, the basic understanding of the dikenga or Kongo Cross is that our universe is composed of two worlds – the land of the living (above) and the land of the dead (below). When human beings incarnate to the land of the living, his or her soul mimics the four movements of the sun – Kala (Sunrise/Birth), Tukala (Midday/Life), Luvemba (Sunset/Death) and Musoni (Midnight/Rebirth).  However, if an individual was experiencing a lot of bad luck, failing health, grave misfortunes, etc., it was understood that the individual’s sun is setting or dying due to some impurity (or sin). In this case, it was necessary for the individual to travel to the land of the dead so that their ancestors could purify them and they could be reborn.
Kongo Cosmogram

Basic Kongo Cosmogram

Rebirth consisted of going to the land of the dead because the land of the dead called mpemba or the “land of whiteness” and purity was seen as a mysterious realm where one found great rewards. Allegorically the land of the dead or mpemba was believed to exist underground but could also be found where the land of the living and the land of the dead met like the plantation and the hush harbors, a city and the forest, a town and the wilderness, a municipal and cemetery, land and a body of water, etc.
Now, what’s unknown to most is that for a long period of time, the original Black Church did not meet in buildings. No, quite the contrary. Our ancestors met in brooks, groves, hush harbors, etc. because slave owners, fearing that early African Americans were plotting a revolt, prohibited them from congregating. When the Second Great Awakening occurred in North America, that’s when a large number of early African Americans willingly converted to Christianity particularly the Baptist and Methodist denominations. Although, most historians are uncertain as to why this massive conversion took place, a thorough analysis of the Old Kongo thinking reveals that it was most likely because full body baptism (submersion into a body of water) was most likely interpreted as the passing into the land of mpemba. Remnants of our Old Kongo belief can still be found in the church today, which is the reason before adherents are baptized.  They are instructed to wear white robes or garments. Another example of this philosophical thinking can be seen in the fact that most elders within the church wear white, and so on, which corresponds to the Luvemba moment – the setting sun – also the color white.
But due to charlatans within our community, the commercialization and exploitation of African American spirituality by outsiders, the Black Church has become a hollow institutions that focused solely on religious entertainment. The loss of African philosophy and theology, combined with the passing of the elders unable to pass their spiritual knowledge to subsequent generations, has resulted in the steady decline of the Black Church.
It was my ancestors that helped me to see that the people of the Kongo-Angolan region were part of the Bantu or Ba-Ntu tribal group, which archeologists and historians have found, once upon a time lived and dwelled along the Nile River. Because as the saying goes: there is nothing new under the sun. The remnants of the Kongo Cross in North America could be syncretized with the Kemetic Amun Ra system to create the maa aankh cosmogram.
For the record, I had read the Story of Ra and Oset (Isis) numerous times.  In fact, I read it so many times that when I saw or heard any mention of it.  I just glossed over it because I did not seen any importance of it. But, it was my ancestors that led me to understand that Ra’s “Secret/Hidden” name was Amun (the Hidden) Ra.  They later showed me how Amun Ra corresponds to the Moon, which was given greater significance then the Sun. It was through this understanding that led me to discover the Maa Aankh.
The basis of the Maa Aankh cosmogram is that the world is composed of two lands called above TASETT (the Red Lands), which is ruled by Set, and KAMTA (the Black Lands), which is ruled by Osar – the owner of the white hedjet crown.  When a human being incarnates to the land of the living or the harsh Red Lands, we must follow the path of Ra, which was discovered by Oset – KhepeRA (Kala in KiKongo/Sunrise/Birth), RA (Tukala in KiKongo/Midday/Life), RA Atum (Luvemba in KiKongo/Sunset/Death) and Amun RA (Musoni in KiKongo/Midnight/Rebirth).

                                   Maa Aankh Cosmogram

Similar to the Kongo land of the dead or mpemba (land of whiteness/purity), KAMTA is called the Black Lands because of the dark fertile soil due to the inundation of the Nile River, but it is an allusion to the mysterious spiritual realm of the ancestors.  Hence, the reason the Kemetians referred to the southern region as the land of their ancestors and symbolized this region by the white Hedjet crown and the Kemetic ancestor Osar.
The purpose of sharing this with you is because many of us (myself included) have been convinced that we were stripped of our culture and it is just not true. The whole purpose of telling us this is so that we never return back to our cultural way of thinking. There are all sorts of examples I could list to prove that we did not lose our culture. We lost the philosophy and theology behind our culture, which is the reason many talk about the ancestors but are afraid to work with them.
KAMTA is the recreation of the brooks, groves, hush harbors, the forest, the wilderness, the cemetery, the underground, the lake, the sea and anywhere there is a mysterious reward including the deep recesses of the mind. This is where all of our answers and solutions come from, and why our ancestors met there to plot their revolts.  So, don’t be afraid of the dark because this is where our ancestors reside.
Hope this helps.

Five Reasons You Should Have a Het (Spiritual House) for Your Spirits

29 09 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, the other day I was looking at my het (spiritual house/altar) and just thinking about how much it has grown from a simple cloth on a wooden box to a two-story altar with a plethora of empowering images. As I gazed upon my het, I am reminded of how much I have grown from mimicking the altars of others out-of-ignorance, to being able to construct a het anywhere by drawing a gateway with a piece of chalk on the ground as my ancestors have done before me.

Kongo Cross used for Ventilation during Underground Railroad

I am amazed at how much I have grown from seeing ordinary objects with concrete images to seeing how anywhere that lines meet form a maa aankh and can become a sacred space.  I stare in awe as I gape upon the numerous images and glasses of libations, which reminds me of the sense of community that the Kemetic people used to defeat the shemsu Set (followers of Set). I see that for those of us on this shamanic path that our het is very important for five reasons and they are:

  1. Reminds You That You Are a God/Goddess. Western religions separate human beings from God and always depict divinities such as angels, saints, martyrs, etc. as towering and tyrannical entities similar to the Greek gods. In Kemetic shamanism we are reminded that the so-called gods and goddesses were once people too. When their images are placed on the het at eye level or on the ground, we are reminded that our Spirits are not above us, and we are not above them.  But that they need us just as much as we need them, just like Osar needed Hru and vice versa. A het is built on the floor to remind ourselves and our Spirits that they are warriors.  A het is built at eye level to remind us and the Spirits that we are here to help one another. Therefore, the het is visual reminder of the partnership that must be created between us and our Spirits in order to achieve our destiny.

Npu (Anubis) – The Opener of the Way

  1. Reminds You That You Are Responsible for Your Life. While it may be a great relief to put all of our cares and worries in the lap of some cosmic deity. It does not erase the why we are here, which is the reason if we continue to struggle with certain issues and problems throughout our life. It is because this problem is tied to your destiny, which means you incarnated to this planet to learn how to overcome that issue. A het reminds you of your purpose and helps you to gather the spiritual strength to achieve your divine purpose, by reminding you of the life of those who came before you.
  1. Helps You to Elevate Your Thoughts. Believe it or not our Spirits know that life on earth is hard because our sahu (physical-body consciousness) has been created to help us to physically survive. Consequently, everything that we do in nature supports our lower self, which means we are naturally selfish and egotistical beings. It is because human beings have an Ab soul that we can choose to rise above our animalistic or lower nature to access our divine nature or BA (Higher Self). The problem is that we have to be constantly reminded of our divine nature because all it takes is for one thing such as someone cutting us off in traffic, flipping us the bird, etc. And, BAM! We forget that we are gods and goddesses having a human experience and revert to our lower self. The het helps us to remember that we are divine beings by allowing our Spirits to interact in our daily life. So, when someone cuts off in traffic, before reacting we notice that the car is red and black, hence Npu or when someone flips us the bird. We see signs of Setian influence all around that person and so on. In other words, the het helps us to see life from a cosmic perspective.
  1. Provide Space to Practice Your Magick. I hear people saying all the time, “Wo/Man were made in the likeness of God” which means that we are supposed to be gods and goddesses too, but when it comes to people demonstrating their godliness. All they do is beg God to save them or save someone else. The Christian speaker Jesus says that all of these things that he does, we will be able to do the same and more through the Father (the Christian code for the BA or Higher Self). This means that when we connect to our BA, we all have the power to bless, heal, etc. as Jesus has done. The het provides the space for us to practice our magick and realize our divine potential. It allows you to contribute to creation instead of being a pawn of nature.
  1. Frees You From Mental Slavery. The Western world was created to gratify our animalistic or lower self. It thrives on the survival of the fittest model, which requires that humanity like animals connive, enslave, steal and kill others to survive. Every aspect of Western society from their religion to politics, to their education to medicine, it is all driven by the same theme, which involves exploiting and subjugating others. This is why the Western society is flirting with disaster because it does not know how to teach its citizens how to get solutions from the BA (Higher Self). Even after the greatest Western minds like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and many others have attested to the power of this Higher Intelligence, Westerners refuse to explore and teach this truth, thus further encouraging its members of society to invest in their lower nature and ultimate demise.
    The het gives us an escape by helping us to communicate with souls of the past, thereby exploring new ways of how to solve old problems.

There are other reasons why the het is a very powerful spiritual tool and when you understand its importance.  It will become clear that the reason Westerners demonized our spiritual practices and destroyed our altars, shrines and collected our sacred objects, which they store in their museums, is because they could not reproduce the same results.  So instead, Westerners chose to eradicate free thought but thankfully the souls of the righteous do not die and our Spirits are always near. If you are sitting on the fence as to building a het for your Spirits, I hope this article will help you to build your Spirits a home.

How to Develop a Maa (Holistic) Perspective

28 09 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

One of the biggest misunderstandings we hear when it comes to spirituality is that the physical world is not real. When people begin to ‘wake up’ or become conscious (enlightened), they are told that the physical world is not a real without further explanation. Some spiritual teachers actually tell their students that only the spiritual realm is real and that it exists above and beyond the physical world.

This is not true per se. This misconception and misunderstanding is due to Westerners culturally appropriating the Hindu concept “maya” without properly understanding the philosophy behind it. The term “maya” is often translated to mean “illusion,” but its literal meaning is closer to “deception.” In other words, maya is a deceptive force that deceives us into seeing that the physical world can give us everything we want, including peace, prosperity, love, wealth, power, happiness, etc.

It is not that the physical is not real.  The physical realm is very much real.  It is that the physical realm casts an illusion that it is a separate and the only reality.  It deludes us into thinking that we are trapped in this realm. For instance, if you are born into poverty, you will also be impoverished, which is an illusion.  If you are ill, you will always ill according to the physical realm, but again this is an illusion because it has been proven that most illness are psychosomatic. Most illnesses are influenced by a thoughts, actions, beliefs, etc.  When we see accidents, tragedies, etc. the physical realm makes us believe that these events just happened or all of a sudden occurred. In other words, the physical realm creates the delusion that we live in a world of happenstance because we do not see the front end of Maa.

The truth is that the physical realm is the end product or the end result of the spiritual realm. Whenever we see planned and unplanned events occur, what we are witnessing is the physical effect of a spiritual cause.  Said another way, the physical realm is a manifestation of the spiritual realm, which is the reason the spiritual realm is called on the maa aankh KAMTA (the southern region of Kemet or Upper Kemet) because it was the inundation of the Nile River in this region that flowed upward and made the northern region TASETT (the Red Lands or Lower Kemet).

Maa Aankh with Utchat

So in Kamta the physical realm is called TASETT (the Red Lands or desert) and is identified with the Kemetic/Kamitic adversary Set, the author of confusion, chaos, war, etc. because it is an energy that creates the delusions of happiness, power, prosperity, peace, etc. from physical things. Set, the foe spirit that governs this physical realm or TASETT, is the spirit of deception that causes us to be selfish, egotistical, arrogant, narcissistic, self-centered, etc.  For this reasons, we say that Set blinds us from seeing the whole as Netcher (Neter) intended.

Understand. If you think that money, sex, drugs, or any other physical thing is going to give you happiness, prosperity, peace, etc. You have been blinded by Set, as the Kemetic hero Hru was when the enemy gouged his eye. But, at the same time, if you think that you do not need the physical realm or that the spiritual realm is the only thing that is important, thus resulting in you thinking you do not need money, shelter, food, etc. Then, you are being too spiritual and not practical like Osar (Asar), which resulted in him underestimating Set and leading to an early death.

To bring Maa (Balance) into your life so that you can see with both eyes, here are several activities that you can employ:

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

  1. Build an ancestral altar. In the Kemetic Legend of Osar, after Oset and Nebhet collected the dismembered body parts of Osar. Everywhere they recovered a missing part they erected a shrine in Osar’s honor, which is an allusion to ancestor veneration. The reason ancestor veneration is the most widely practice tradition all over the world is because it is proof that there is a spiritual reality beyond this physical reality. The followers of Set have done a great job convincing people there is a heaven and hell but have yet to prove the existence of both. Ancestor veneration is proof that the human soul does not die.
  2. Begin to Practice Divination. True divination is not a means of foretelling the future and determining the winning numbers of Powerball. By the way, the purpose of divination is not to tell you what you should and should not do. The true purpose of divination is to show you the consequences of choices that you make. Divination provides you with the intuitive or the spiritual side of reality, which is the reason the Kemetic sages ingeniously state that after Set gouged out the young Hru’s eye. It was Djahuti who repaired his perfectly and made it whole.
  3. Rhythmic and Meditative Sounds. When I first became attracted to this way of life, I remember I was watched the movie Quilombo which inspired me to listening to the sacred songs of Cadomble. As a result, the sacred music of Candomble became a gateway that helped me to go into a meditative state. Today, I can listen to blues, gospel, traditional African, etc. and it will transport me to the spiritual realm, thus allowing me to get a Maa perspective. In order to use music as a tool, it is best that music be slow, rhythmic and preferably in another language (or no words like drumming music), so that you are not focusing on the literal meaning of the music but the rhythm. If you possible, you can also try drumming but note that it may require you to drum for several hours.
  4. Studying Metaphysics. Studying metaphysics can also lead to one expanding their awareness but it has to be combined with ritual in order to give a holistic view of reality. When metaphysics is not combined with ritual it leads to “intellectual masturbation” which results in the creation of numerous theories without any practical application. In other words, you are just talk and no action. By combining metaphysics with ritual you are able to see which theories are applicable.
  5. Studying Dreams. The language of the BA (Superconscious) and sahu (subconscious) are symbols, so when one dreams or has visions. They need to ask what does the symbol mean in order to interpret the dream. By diligently studying the symbols in one’s dreams, one is able interpret the vast symbols that exist in nature. Certain patterns such as seeing three feral dogs or encountering individuals wearing red and black, will become easily identifiable as Npu, the jackal masked spirit. Through studying dreams and symbols it becomes clear that the physical realm is a manifestation of the spiritual realm.

There are other ways to establish a Maa perspective in your life but the methods used above are the ones I have found to be the most useful in my development. One thing that must be understood, is that every method does not work the same for everyone. Some people may be more clairvoyant, clairsentience, clairaudience and/or claircognizance. It is rare that one individual will have all of these traits but understand that these are all signs that one eye is being repaired.

Ancient African Spirituality is doing what is Right not (necessarily) what is, Easy

29 07 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know there is a lot of confusion about what ancient African spirituality is about. Some people think that it is all about receiving a cool name listing all of these ancient African spirits.  Others think that it is all about living with no consequences for your actions and behaviors.

I understand and know this because I remember that when I first became interested in ancient African spirituality.   I came across this book where this lady was given instructions to get a particular man by offerings the orisha Oshun a pumpkin with her loved interests name inside of it, along with other objects sacred to the Yoruba orisha of love. The lady was also instructed after her petition was answered to make a weekly offering to Oshun for her continual blessings. After this lady made the offerings, Oshun brought this lady and man together but a few years later. The couple began to have all sorts of problems, until one day her husband became so furious that he grabbed the weekly offerings the lady was making to Oshun and threw them on the floor. When the lady went to the individual who gave her the initial instructions for capturing her loved interest. She was simply told that the same way Oshun brought them together, she could dissolve their relationship as well.

I remember that after reading this story I thought that all ancient African spirituality was all about was you doing a spell and “Voila!” You magically get what you want, so long as you keep the spirits happy. What I learned, the hard way I might add, is that this is not African spirituality. This is what the Hollywood horror films and other misinformation about African traditions want you to believe ancient African spirituality is about.

It is true that if you make an offering to the spirits, that “Voila!” They will give you what want or at least put you in the right place to get what you want. However, after you get what you want, you still have to do the work to keep it. For instance, if you do a love spell for the spirits to get you a man or woman, but you do not know how to keep that man or woman because you have a “stank” attitude, bad manners, you talk “at” your loved one instead of “to” your loved one, etc. Guess what? That person you attracted is going to leave because this is “African influenced magic” not ancient African spirituality. African magic makes up a very small percentage of ancient African spirituality. I would say at least 2 – 5%, while the bulk of ancient African spirituality involves working on yourself.

You see, African spirituality is based upon what I call the Ba (Superconscious or Higher Self) and involves working on yourself because it understands. That most of our problem are self-created, self-induced and self-inflicted problems that stem from our sahu (subconscious). In other words, most of our problems are due to destructive, nasty and negative habits that we most likely learned during our childhood.

This is hard for a lot of people to accept because many do not understand how they got their destructive habits. Well, don’t beat yourself up about them because as I mentioned. You got them subconsciously (sahu), which means you did not deliberately learn these destructive and negative habits. As a child, you indiscriminately imitated them because your Ab (conscious mind/spirit heart) was not developed. When we are all children, we are all very impressionable and believe everything that we see and hear as the gospel truth.  To get real with you, a lot of what we believe is the gospel truth, we learned from our parents – primarily our mothers.

Yes. Many of the things that our mothers taught us is the reason we are having problems because as children. Our mother cannot do wrong, after all she carried us in her womb for nine months, breastfed us and was the first human being to teach us anything. She repeated everything to us and took the time to teach us the first things that make us who we are. To many of us, subconsciously Mom is (the first) God and God cannot do any wrong, so it is hard for many of us to accept that our Mom may have taught us something incorrectly.

But, what we have to understand that if there is something that we are in the habit of doing and it is not working for us. It is not Maa (Truth), which means it is not based upon the Ba (Higher Self) but upon the sahu (lower self) and to be exact, our parents (or Mom’s) opinionated perspective.

So what does all of this mean?

Well, it means that your personality, which was influenced by your Mom (and/or parents) is not who you are, but how you are in the habit of acting and behaving as.

In African spirituality you can’t say, “This is how I am” , “Just accept me for who I am” or “I can’t do x, y and z” because this is not who you are. This is what you are in the habit of acting and behaving as. Who you are is based upon your Ba (Superconscious/Higher Self), which is a clean slate that means you can become anyone and anything.

In other words, you may come from a broken home, which means psychologically speaking. You most likely when you grow up will have relationship problems because this is what you are habitually familiar with due to your subconscious (sahu) programming.  However, you have a Ba (Superconscious or Higher Self), which means that you can change this subconscious program and have a happy relationship.  You simply have to ask your Spirits to help and work through your conditionings.

No, it is not going to be Easy (all the time) but it is the Right thing to do and it is worth it. History is full of examples of individuals who have overcome incredible odds that were stacked up against them to become healthy, wealthy, powerful and influential people. If they can do it, you can too!

Hru and Set – Fighting the Devil Within

Only angry, egotistical and lazy people say, “This is who I am” as an excuse for their destructive, nasty and negative behavior.  Being yourself is great if it works for you but, if keep hitting a brick wall in regards to your health, finances, career, relationships, etc. Yourself, is most likely a subconscious (sahu) habit learned when you were younger.  And, this is the reason in the Kemetic tradition, our subconscious (sahu) habitual self (lower self) or ego-self is symbolized as Set (Typhon in Greek, Set-an or Satan in Judeo-Christian belief ), the spirit of chaos, havoc, laziness, stubborness and destruction.

You will know it is Set influencing your behavior because Set fights against positive change and wants you to continue to blame others for your shortcomings. Set is the lord of excuses and wants you to keep getting the same results using the same old conditional thinking. He will use everything within his power, especially fear to discourage you away from positive change.

The beauty of ancient African spirituality is that it focuses on your Ba (Superconscious or Higher Self), which is symbolized as Osar (Osiris).  Osar wants reminds us that at any time we can hit the reset and start over because our Ba gives us a clean slate like a blackboard that can be erased.

In other words, it does not matter where you come from or what your background is because your past does not define who you are. It only indicates what you have overcome. Therefore, the magic of ancient African spirituality is that it helps us to not focus on what we are, but what we can become.

Hetepu.
