DON’T BE STUPID, STOP SAYING “I Can’t Breathe!”

24 06 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I know it has been a minute since we last spoke and some of us need to ‘be shook’.  I AM GOD.  There has been a lot of stuff going on and it has been happening so fast, it is a little surreal.  Anyway, where have I been?  Well, contrary to popular belief and stereotypical public opinion, real men do real work.  So, I hope you are all on your grind for real.

I AM GOD!

Now, I was not going to blog about all of protesting going on because most of you know where I stand on this.  I have said it before, this enemy does not support anything that it cannot profit from. If you don’t know now, you should know that black lives matter does not represent US. Just like Obama did not represent US. I told you a while back that spirituality was important for this revolution because this thing was going to come down to a fight for our mind, and here it is.

So, if you are confused as to what you should be doing, what side you should be on, who’s right and who’s wrong, etc.? Then, you better start meditating and invest if your Spirit because all of these people who want to wallow around with Set’s pigs and snakes are about to be swept up. I AM GOD!

Family.  We are intuitive people who are descendants from an intuitive culture, which means our ancestors and other spirits will inform us when something ain’t right. We just feel it and can confirm it through divination, but when we occupy our time watching bull**** instead of doing altar work, meditating, tracking, and putting in the physical work to raise our loved one’s up.  We move from vibrating on a high level to a low level, and this is where the energy of this entire country is at. I AM GOD!

I will say it again. Blm does not represent US and the only reason these companies are putting money behind them is that there is something sinister at work. Anytime these politicians can school one another on what tie to wear to appeal to a specific demographic. Then we have to suspect that they knew that wearing a kente stole was going to come off as cheeky to the high thinkers. Those low thinkers would see Pelosi and them acting in their favor.

Again, ‘they” do not support anything we do unless it benefits them.

I am always reminded of some of my favorite Denzel’s films and how in all of the great roles he played.

He did not receive an Oscar for playing a great, positive, and uplifting role. However, he received an award for playing a devoted soldier who was flogged for leaving camp, despite the fact that flogging was banned when union infantry was formed, and. He receives an award for playing a stereotypical, crooked cop. So, all of these corporations throwing money behind the #blm is purely fictional. Proof for the naysayers, how is all of this money being sent to #blm being used to curtail police brutality? There is no real agenda, no real plan because it is all a rouse. I AM GOD!

Like I said, I wasn’t going to comment on any of this until I open my email and was hit with this foolish mantra in an advertisement, “* Can’t Breath!”

I AM GOD!

“Enough is enough. “I said.

Look, for all of you don’t have knowledge of self. When you say, “I fill in the blank“ repetitively. Your subconscious/lower spirit which cannot distinguish between what is fake and real classifies it all as a “real”  belief.  When this belief becomes a permanent fixture in your subconscious mind, your Superconscious makes it an actual reality.

Remember, saying “I can’t do math”, “I can’t find a job!” “I can’t find a good man/woman”?

So, what do you think will happens when you say that mantra? What makes matters worse, what happens when you repeat this mantra during a pandemic which attacks the respiratory system?

Don’t fall for the okey-doke Family. Keep your vibrations elevated. They are definitively banking on people not having any knowledge of self.

Yeah, you have heard that other mantra so much I had to disrupt the frequency.  If you want some real change, chant, “I AM GOD!”  In fact, every time you hear that other low energy mantra, you might want to tap your head (third eye) and say “I AM GOD!” to counter it.

Learn how to trust your intuition and stay away from low vibing things and people that are goading you to be emotional and reactionary, instead of intuitive and proactive.





What is the Holy Ghost “Kemeticly” Speaking?

1 06 2020

This post appears originally as an article on thelandofkam.com

You know when I lost my faith in God and traveled down that road to find God for myself.  One of the subjects that used to fascinate me the most was the concept and practice of speaking-in-tongues.   I was always taught that when people spoke in tongues that it was a sign that they had received the gift of the Holy Ghost, but when I lost my faith. I really wondered what was the Holy Ghost.

For the record, I spoke-in-tongues a couple of times. I received the gift of the holy ghost one night because I was seriously seeking divine protection in the streets. I remember the night I received the holy ghost I was told to chant the name of Jesus, Thank Jesus or Hallelujah numerous times. After repeating these terms for so long, I began to speak-in-tongues. (Stay with me because there is a reason I am sharing this.), but I was not like my friend Jay.

Jay was a preacher kid like me, but he was a few years older than me and a bit of a troublemaker. I only hung out with Jay when I was younger because he was funny and really an intimidating jerk that no one really messed with, which I would have preferred to side with rather than be on his receiving end.    One of the things that he would do that I thought was funny was making himself get the holy ghost and speak-in-tongues. But, like a lot of people I observed who would be struck by the holy spirit after James got the holy ghost, sand poke-in-tongues a little bit.  As soon as the holy spirit left him, he went right back to acting like a jerk.

Now, when I lost my faith, and shortly after I met my spirit guide.  I stopped associating with Jay and for good reason because everyone who had ties with him was imprisoned.

But, I always wondered how was Jay able to make himself speak-in-tongues and get the holy ghost. I also wondered why didn’t the holy ghost make Jay and other people act right? Another thing I wondered about was as the famed Luisah Teish had noted in her book Jambalaya, was why did the people who spoke-in-tongues have such a “heavily voweled” pronunciation like West African languages?

It took me a while to find this answer but I did after spending a little bit of time with individuals who practiced Espiritismo (Spiritism in the Caribbean).  As I have mentioned before, it was my spirit guide who advised me to start studying the Kemetic tradition, and upon doing so. I found that there were ten major archetype divinities that existed in the Kemetic tradition.  These major archetypes also corresponded to the ten spheres on the Kabbalah.

Later, I found that Spiritism was once a worldwide philosophy, founded by French educator Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail also known as Allan Kardec.  Spiritism or Spiritualism (as it is called in the United States).  The Spiritist movement rapidly spread throughout Europe and the Americas in the mid-19th and early 20th centuries because Kardec had documented and codified spiritual communication. Unlike the silly horror movies that show people table rapping with phantoms. Spiritism encouraged spirit communication for the elevation of humanity. So besides proving that spirits were real and that there was life after death, Spiritism introduced the concept of spiritual evolution through ethical and moral living for both the living and the spirit.

Consequently, Kardec wrote that there were ten types of spirits, which to me was very similar to the ten major Kemetic archetypes.  Kardec wrote several books and articles. In an 1858 article about spirits, which has been published in a book called the Spiritist Review – Journal of Psychological Studies, Kardec wrote that:

  1. The spirits are not all equal nor in power, nor in knowledge or wisdom. As they are no more than human souls detached from their corporeal body, they present a variety even greater than that of people on Earth, because they come from all worlds and, among the globes. Earth is neither the most basic nor the most advanced. Thus, there are very superior spirits as there are very inferior ones; very good and bad; very wise and very ignorant; there are those of levity, malevolence, liars, astute, hypocrites, polished, sharp, jokers, etc.
  2. We are incessantly surrounded by a cloud of spirits that occupy the space around us, despite the fact that we cannot see them, watching our acts, reading our thoughts, some to do us good, others to do us harm, whether good or bad spirits, accordingly.
  3. From the physical and moral inferiority of our globe in the hierarchy of the worlds, the inferior spirits are more numerous here than the superior ones.
  4. Among those spirits that surround us there are those that attach to us; that act more particularly over our thoughts, giving us advice, and whose influence we follow unnoticeably. Good for us if we hear the voice of good spirits only.
  5. The inferior spirits only bond to those that listen to them, that give them access and to whom they connect. If successful on dominating someone, they identify with their own spirit, fascinating then, obsessing them, subjugating them, and leading then as one does to a child.
  6. Obsession can never happen but by inferior spirits. The good spirits don’t produce any kind of coercion, combat the influence of the bad spirits, and stay away from when they are not listened to.
  7. The degree of coercion and the nature of the effects it produces determines the difference between obsession, subjugation, and fascination.
    Obsession is the almost permanent action of a strange spirit that leads the person to be solicited by an incessant need to act by this way or the other and to do this or that. Subjugation is a moral bond that paralyzes the free will of the one that suffers it, pushing the person to the most reckless attitudes, frequently most contrary to their own interest.
    * Fascination is a kind of illusion produced by the direct action of a strange spirit or by his cunning thoughts. Such as illusion produces an alteration in the comprehension of moral things, leading to misjudgment and to mistake evil for good.
  8. Human beings can always disengage from the oppression of the imperfect spirits by their will power, by the choice between good and bad. If the coercion achieved the point of paralyzing the will and if the fascination is such that it obliterates reason, then the will of a third person may replace it. [pg. 433-434]

Unfortunately, Spiritism did not spread in the United States as it had in Europe and other parts of the Americas. As a result, although Spiritism made a brief impact on American Christianity which can be seen in many Pentecostal influenced churches via speaking-in-tongues and mild possessions, such as ecstatic dances.  Which are all cultural practices that can be found outside of the church and throughout the Afro-Diaspora.   Due to the Protestant church’s bible-only belief, most within the church have not read Kardec’s writings and are unaware of the spirits they are communicating with.

What this means, which I go into great detail in Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way, is that what most people are calling the holy ghost is actually ancestral spirits and spirit guides associated with one of the ten spirit types.  These ten spirits types according to the Kemetic belief are:

  1. Osar
  2. Djahuti
  3. Sokar
  4. Maat
  5. Hru Aakhuti
  6. Hru
  7. Nebhet
  8. Npu
  9. Oset
  10. Set.

It is important to understand that in Kemeticism, Ra is not the Sun but the life-force or Power of the Divine called chi in the Chinese tradition, prana in the Hindu tradition, and the Holy Ghost in Christianity. This Divine Energy that the Kemetic people called Ra or Rau has a high or pure frequency.  The highest or purest form of this Rau energy is Amun Ra, while the lowest/impurest or more adulterated frequency of the Ra energy is Ra Atum, hence the snake consuming its’ tail as Ouroboros or the Maa Aankh.

The highest personification of the Amun Ra frequency is symbolized as Osar, while the lowest is symbolized as Osar’s envious brother Set.

It is my strong belief that the reason the Holy Ghost has not to change a lot of people within the church is that they do not know how to access the higher frequencies and are afraid of the spirits out of spiritual ignorance.  As a result, most are following and listening to lower ancestral spirits that are associated with the 8 – 10 spirit types.

So, how do you communicate with higher spirits? You have to elevate your consciousness, which is symbolized as the heir Hru (Horus). This is the purpose of Kemetic spirituality and why spiritual development is so important.

Before I proceed, let me first say that this is not an attack on black churches or preachers. I am simply presenting this info. to illustrate that the reason our communities are not spiritually evolving is that we are not tapping into our ancestral traditions, but when we do. It provides a key to how to solve a lot of problems.

Now, one of the ways to communicate with our higher spirits is by raising your consciousness, which the old people used to do through fasting.  Fasting done correctly strengthens the spirit (Higher spirits) and weakens the flesh (lower spirits).  It used to be a time that before preachers preached, evangelists ministered, and elders engaged in any spiritual healing practice, they would fast, pray, meditate and strive to live a more spiritually pure life because this is how we used to practice spirituality in Africa.   This is how you resurrect the Kingdom of Osar.

Please note that the lower spirits are called as such because they are focused more materialistic and selfish.





Why is the Devil Winning? (Egregores)

8 02 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

17 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

Kung Fu television series starring David Carradine

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

The television series Kung Fu starring David Carradine.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to Celebrate the Birth of HRU (Winter Solstice)

16 12 2019

Dear Hru (Heru, Horus)

Oh how Set (Set-an, the Ego) has perverted your holy-day by convincing the sleepers that a hero was born to save them and shower them with wondrous gifts.  However, don’t fret because the Age of Information is among us, and Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) and Nebhet (Nephthys) are steady erecting shrines to remind people of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris), Our true Father who art in Heaven (Superconscious).  People are celebrating in every way they can to welcome you Hru such as making chakra trees and so on.

Today Hru, I decided to make a tree of life tree to welcome you. I decorated a little tree with lights to symbolize the benevolent spirits surrounding my family. I got nine ornamental globes and a star to represent the nine spheres on the tree of life or the nine Netcharu (guardian spirits) who are focused on our success. I also purchased a red and gold garland to represent our grandfather Rau (Kundalini) and hung it from the top of the star to the bottom of the tree.  Then, I made sure to place a brown cloth as a tree skirt to symbolize what I want to manifest physically into my life for the coming new year.

Oh Hru! Syncretism has never felt so good! So, this year I will start a new tradition by telling my child you Story of how you taught us how to reclaim our throne.

Thank you Hru for helping me to save me.  Anetch Hrak Hru (Salutations Hru)!

Happy Winter SoL-Stice

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

9 12 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings)

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

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

Taoism & Huna

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

Druid Rune System & Ifa Spiritual System
Courtesy of:
and http://www.runedruid.com/ https://www.pinterest.com/Fasotito/fasotito-memes/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Does It Mean to Honor Your Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way?

10 09 2019

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I am writing this post because I have received a few questions in regards to what it really means to honor your ancestors in the Kemetic Shaman way.  So, I will try not to make this too long but before explaining how to Honor Your Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way, what needs to be understood about African American spirituality is that it is uniquely different from Caribbean, Latin American spirituality and African spirituality, because the African American experience was not like any other.

As I have mentioned before when the Africans were brought to the Americas. Most of the Africans taken to Cuba, Haiti and Brazil were fortunate enough to smuggle some of their ancestral artifacts, which allowed them to transplant their religious beliefs into the “New World.”  As a result, when these Africans taken to the Spanish and Portuguese (and eventually French) controlled territories. They were able to syncretize their indigenous religious beliefs with the predominant European faith Roman Catholicism to create Lukumi (also known as Santeria), Vodun, Palo Mayombe, Candomble, Macumba, Umbanda and so on.  Consequently, these Africans were able to continue their religious beliefs and practices relatively undisturbed, which is termed La Regla (Spanish meaning “religious” Rule).

But, the Africans taken to North America did not have the same luck because the Europeans and Euro-Americans in the British controlled New World were Protestants.  This made it virtually impossible for those Africans who had an elaborate pantheon such as the Akan, Yoruba, Fon, etc. to syncretize their religious beliefs with no saints. Also, unlike the Africans taken to the Caribbean and South America countries, whose oppressors tried to justify the enslavement of Africans by forcing them to convert to Catholicism. The Protestants in North America for the longest time refused to Christianize the Africans in North America, out of fear that the concept of spiritual salvation would be confused with physical liberation.  This along with the fact, that many of the people from the Kongo-Angolan region were Christian or at least familiar with the Christian faith prior to the advent of the slave trade. Made it possible for many of the Africans taken to North America to practice their spiritual beliefs undisturbed based upon their ancestral recollection.

Consequently, most of the Africans in North America after relying upon their ancestral memories were able to syncretize their beliefs (as best as possible) with the indigenous populations’ beliefs and the fragmented Protestant Christianity teachings they received, to create a spirituality with no rule called in Spanish Sin la Regla (Without “religious” Rule).

Basically, what this meant was that African American spirituality developed and evolved out of trial and error.  If something did not work it was abandoned, but if it worked was incorporated and passed to succeeding generations.

Now, when Hippolyte Leon Denizard Rivail (Oct. 3, 1804 – March 31, 1869) or  Allan Kardec’s Spiritism began to spread throughout the western world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Never Forget

Since the Caribbean and South America already had a La Regla (a strong religious foundation along with the Roman Catholic framework) in place. It was relatively simple for Spiritism to be organized and to flourish, which is the reason there are strong Spiritism traditions that can be found in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Brazil, Haiti and so on.  In North America, particularly the United States, the lack of a strong religious rule combined with attacks from the Protestant churches, prevented Spiritism from organizing and flourishing as it had done elsewhere.  However, these obstacles did not totally stop Spiritism from influencing spirituality in the United States.  It did, however, cause (quiet as kept) both the Holiness and the Pentecostal Movement to adopt, pervert and repackage concepts of the Spiritist doctrine as their own.

Consequently, most of us in the United States have been shunned by the horror film industry and the religious community from learning anything about spirits . When we ask questions about spirits, most preachers, evangelists, missionaries, theologians, etc. will try their best to discourage us from inquiring about the subject. Whenever we are in church and we witness someone get filled with the holy ghost or holy spirit. We are taught that it is not the same as possession (which it is) and that it is evidence of God, while other religions and traditions that practice spirit possession are of the devil.

Now. If you are reading this it probably because you are at a crossroad as to what to believe and all I can tell you is this. I was at a similar crossroad once upon a time at my life and a very interesting thought came to me, which was. If everyone in the church was filled with the Spirit of God, why haven’t these peoples’ lives changed? Why haven’t their communities been upgraded or improved, if according to scripture they should be renewed?  The answer that came back to me was that because these people refuse to educate themselves about the nature of spirits. Most do not know that they are possessing low ancestral spirits masquerading as “holy ghosts.” This is what made me learn about Spiritism.

Since our spirituality exists Sin La Regla (Within Any Rule), the man who introduced me to Spiritism was an old Cuban man whom I called Papa.  Papa basically taught me that Espiritisimo has no rules and goes according to how you feel. Following Papa’s advice and after communicating with my ancestors and spirits.  It was revealed to me that the Story of Osar (Asar, Osiris) was an allegory about ten tribal clans who once lived in Kemet who were immortalized. These ten clans were: Osar, Djahuti, Maat, Hru, Hru Aakhuti, Oset, Nebhet, Sokar, Npu and Set.Since our spirituality exists Sin La Regla (Within Any Rule), which means essentially no one has the right to tell us what is right or wrong, truth or untruth.  It is all about what produces the desired results and the man who introduced me to this aspect of Spiritism was an old Cuban man whom I called Papa.  Papa basically taught me that Espiritisimo has no rules and goes according to how you feel. Following Papa’s advice and after communicating with my ancestors and spirits.  It was revealed to me that the Story of Osar (Asar, Osiris) was an allegory about ten tribal clans who once lived in Kemet who were immortalized. These ten clans were: Osar, Djahuti, Maat, Hru, Hru Aakhuti, Oset, Nebhet, Sokar, Npu and Set.

  1. Osar symbolizes our main spirit guide who coordinates all of the other guides. As far as I can tell, this guide is responsible for the synchronicity occurring in our life. Our Osar symbolizes our Higher Consciousness, which is also why he is identified with the Superconscious.
  2. Djahuti symbolizes the spirit guide that gives us messages intuitively via clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, etc.
  3. Maat symbolizes the spirit guide who teaches us and helps us to bring balance and order in our life by learning from karmic experiences.
  4. Hru Aakhuti symbolizes our protective guide who shields us from danger seen and unseen.
  5. Sokar symbolizes our healing spirit guide. This is the spirit guide who taught me the ritual that helped me to walked when I was unable to do so years ago. I will talk about this a little later down below.
  6. Hru symbolizes our justice-seeking spirit guide that fights for what we want, justice and what we believe is right.
  7. Nebhet symbolizes our creative spirit guide
  8. Npu is our gatekeeper guide that opens and closes doors for us.
  9. Oset (Aset/Isis) is our helper guide who will bring other spirits in to assist us with whatever we need help with.

In addition, we also have aakhu or ancestor spirits who are our deceased blood relatives and/or people we may have known or may have known us from past lives, etc.

Again, without going too much into detail, together these nine tribal clans symbolize a unified consciousness within us. Since Set usurped the throne of Osar and created chaos throughout Kemet by destroying the unity among the clans.

  1. Set is the name used to symbolize our lowest (ego) nature, which is why he is personified as our lower consciousness and our subconscious. The aapepu (misguided, confused, chaotic ancestral spirits) symbolize our skeletons in the closes sort of speak.

I have found that building a rapport with our spirit guides is very helpful for numerous reasons, too many to mention.  For instance, as most of you know, my person was diagnosed with lupus and there was a time when I literally could not walk. It was so painful that I could not even stand to go to the restroom.  Enters my Sokar. I do not even know how I got the idea but all I know is that my Sokar came to me in the form of icon Lazarus. The ritual that was shared with me was to buy a Lazaro (Saint Lazarus) statue and promise to take his crutches away if he helped me to walk.  I was also inspired to dance, which is an activity that the Yoruba orisha Babaluaiye (who is syncretized with Saint Lazarus and Sokar) was fond of.  Now, I had done the ritual maybe for a couple of days, I can’t remember now. All I know is that one day, there was a leak in my basement and I found myself running up and down the stairs. I think after the seventh time of running down the stairs, that’s when it dawned on me that I was walking. So, now I continue to honor my Sokar with a Lazaro statue.

So, Honoring the Kemetic Shaman way refers to seeing the Kemetic energies/spirits within and outside of you. Family. Kemet is alive and well because it is within us who have been called to this path. Don’t get caught up in the Hotep Game thinking that you have to have Egyptian artifacts to be on the Kemetic path.  Your  Mind-Spirit does not know the difference between color, ethnicity, and creed.  You have to understand that these are energies and because we are a microcosm of a Great Macrocosm, these energies exist outside and within us.  To honor the Kemetic Shaman Way is to work the Spirit from the Kemetic perspective.  For instance,  Maat doesn’t always manifest herself rocking a single feather headdress. I know a lot of people who will tell you that their Maat has come to them as a Native American spirit or even as an indigenous African spirit. You never know, but this is the reason you have to build a rapport with your ancestors and guides.

Hope that helps.

3 Points About “Consciousness (WOKE)” that is missed!

12 07 2019
3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed

There’s a lot of talk about being “conscious/woke” but what I have found is that there 3 points about “consciousness (woke).”  That is missed because a lot of people really do not understand what it really means to be conscious.  So here is my two cents based upon my experience of walking this path:

3 points about "consciousness (woke)" that is missed is that you should be in balance with the Universe/Spirits or Maat
The guardian spirit Maat who symbolizes alignment or balance with the Universe is the first sign of consciousness

The First Point About Consciousness that is Missed

The first point out of the 3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed is that many do not understand that consciousness means being in alignment with the Universe/Spirits.  Another word for alignment is a balance, which is symbolized in the Kemetic tradition by the guardian spirit Maat who balances the feather of truth on her head.

When you are in alignment with the Universe/Spirits, things flow to you almost effortlessly.

Warning:

This does not mean that there is no room for error or for things to go wrong.  This also does not mean you do not have to do any work to get what you want.  It simply means that you put a request out into the ether and the Universe/Spirits heard it and are fulfilling your request.

The Second Point about Consciousness that is Missed

The second point out of the 3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed is being conscious means being aware that the Universe/Spirits do not function or operate according to human time.  Time is a human concept that was created to help us put things in order, but the Universe/Spirits do not function or operate according to our time.  The Universe/Spirits operate according to universal cycles of nature.  As it is stated in Ecclesiastes 3, “To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heavens.”

Therefore, being “conscious (woke)” also means understanding that when you put forth a request and it does not manifest yet. It might be because what you are asking for is not in “season.”   I have heard it put another way, that you ordered something off the Universal menu but presently they are out of stock.

This is one of those points that many of us struggle with (myself included) because we are bombarded with ideas and notions in western culture.  That when we want something, we should have anything and everything we want right now!  We need to remind ourselves that there is a time and place for everything., which is one of the reasons I use the Maa Aankh (left).  The interesting thing is that technology makes it more difficult for us to remember that there is a season for everything.

For instance, because of technology, we find summer fruits like cantaloupe and watermelons in the grocery stores during winter months. Or, we may be tempted to consume a lot of winter warming foods like nuts and berries during the summer.

If we remember that everything has its’ season we will see that reason animals like squirrels stock up on nuts and why nuts are in abundance during the winter months is because it is their season.  Winter corresponds to the midnight, cooling and rebirthing nature of the Amun Ra moment.

The same goes for melons being in abundance during the summer months, which are used to help cool the body.  Summer corresponds to the midday, lively (active) and fiery nature of the Ra moment (see What is Kamta?).

So, if you asked for something and it has not manifested yet, remember that it might not be in season or time.  Simply keep your faith and keep your request on your heart.


3 points about "consciousness (woke)" that is missed is that you should be in alignment

  • Khepera (in KiKongo Kala), which symbolizes Sunrise,  Birth, East, Spring, Children, the color black, etc.
  • Ra (in KiKongo TuKula), which symbolizes Midday Sun, Life, South, Summer, Adolescence and Adults, vitality, the color red, etc.
  • Ra Atum (in KiKongo Luvemba), which symbolizes Sunset, Death, West, Fall, Elders, the color white, etc.  
  • Amun Ra (in KiKongo Musoni), which symbolizes Midnight (when the sun is believed to be on the other side), North, Winter, Ancestors/Spirit Guides, the color yellow, etc.  

The Third Point About Consciousness that is Missed

The third point out of the 3 points about “consciousness (woke)” that is missed is a real big one, and it involves trusting your intuition

When you are conscious things (ideas, hunches, etc.)  come to you, so you have to learn to trust your intuition. The biggest obstacle to your prayers being answered and/or your magick manifesting is yourself – in particular, your lower self. This is because this western society that we live has taught us since birth to trust only in what we can assess (measure) with our five physical senses. So, for a lot of us, our intuitive faculty has atrophied because we stopped using it as soon as we enter grade school and was told to stop daydreaming so much. Consequently, many of us will receive an intuitive idea but will not act on it because we want physical proof.

This, unfortunately, is the reason a lot of people who allege to be “woke” are very informed when it comes to history, social issues, politics, current affairs, etc. but lack spiritual insight and direction because they have no spiritual practice. These people are known as great “intellectual masturbators” because they literally “get off” by spouting a bunch of information and humiliating others who have not read and/or cannot debate as well as they can. If these individuals would follow their intuition and listen to the Universe/Spirits, they would know that everyone is not at the same level spiritually, so it is foolish to debate with others based upon information because it is simply a matter of opinion.  In other words, what most of these “hotep” debaters are arguing about is a subjective truth, which is based upon personal experience.   As the saying goes, “all roads lead to heaven,” which means regardless of what path a person takes, they will eventually find Truth.

3 points about "consciousness (woke)" that is missed you receive assistance from your ancestors and spirit guides
Aakhu (Ancestors and Spirit Guides) assist us in being Conscious “Woke” by Helping Us to Understand the Signs

Trusting your intuition means just that “trusting your intuition.”  Some of us have a difficult time trying to distinguish if the voices we hear our own head, our ancestors and spirit guides, etc.  (See: How to Distinguish When Your Guardian Spirits Are Speaking) Again, I know it is a challenge because we have also been influenced by the horror film industry and/or the horrors of “blind faith (aka just put your trust in Jesus and everything will be alright)” in the Church. The good thing is that the Universe/Spirits never give intuitive information without first giving you a sign. This is one of the reasons why the ancestors are so important to truly conscious people.

Our aakhu (ancestors and spirit guides) were once human beings so they know how hard it is to put your faith in something without having a lot of reasons to do so. So, understand your ancestors and spirit guides will give you signs.  (see Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way).

You will not know “the science” of why something works because it is based upon esoteric sciences (see The Kamta Primer). For instance, no one really knows what the ancestors and spirit guides do with the food, drink, spirit money and other offerings that are offered to them because they have no physical body, so technically they have no use for these things.

We are told that they consume the essence of these offerings, which is sufficient for them but if you are a rational mind person, part of you still wants to know what the hell does that mean “consume the essence.” This is when you must stop yourself because you are about to go down another intellectual rollercoaster that is going to derail your prayer/magick. For the record, that part of your being that is intentionally and unintentionally sabotaging your efforts is your Set (lower self).

Simply trust your intuition and listen to your aakhu. Know that the Universe/Spirits would not tell you to do something that is going to harm yourself or others. Remember, the Universe/Spirits know you inside and out, so they know what you are ready to accept based upon your beliefs and will never force you to do anything. It is always about free will.

When you keep these three points in mind and begin to exercise your spirituality. This is when you really begin to become conscious and you cease worrying as much.  You know that everything, for the most part, is going to work out for the best but remember. You still have to do your part and fulfill your destiny (see The Kamta Primer) but, you have ancestors and spirit guides who walk with you so that you are not alone (see Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way).

Did You Forget?

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know it recently dawned on me that after reading and studying the Kemetic history, Kemetic philosophy and the Kemetic tradition.  And, after years of implementing what I have learned about Kemetic spirituality to find my own way or personal maa (truth, law, etc.). That the ancient Kemetic sages were notorious for inscribing everything down on the wall, stone tablet, and papyrus but there were a couple of subjects that they did not leave a record of and they are: finances and health.

Why is that?

Is it because the Kemetic people did not feel that finances and health were important?

Well, in regards to finances we must remember that the Kemetic people lived in an agrarian and somewhat socialist society where the wealth of the nation was shared with everyone. Kemet excelled and prospered over other nations of antiquity because of the inundation o the Nile River.  This is the main reason we cannot practice Kemetic spirituality the way it was done in Kemet because we live in two different cultural societies.

Life on the Nile.

Generally speaking, the surplus in food is what allowed the Kemetic people to ponder the mysteries of the Universe because they did not have to worry about where the next meal was going to come from. So, we know that finances were important because it was needed to feed, clothe and shelter the people, not to mention to fund major projects like the building of temples and colossal statues.

We also know from the various medical texts that have been recovered that the Kemetic people thought that the health of the people was also very important.

But, there were no major texts written on how to increase your finances and how to live healthy when compared to all of the texts written on spirituality, which made me ask why?

The answer that came back to me is that finances and health were important to our Nilotic ancestors but it was more important for us understand who we are.

The Kemetic sages understood that with each generation there is a natural progression and regression that occurs.  Where the more technologically advanced a society becomes the more they regress because technology distracts people from their real goal. The real goal according to the Kemetic sages is that we come to this physical plane to spiritually evolve, and the only way to evolve is to experience hardship and suffering.

Why hardship and suffering, you ask?

TASETT (The Red Lands) – the physical realm and land of the living.

It is because you cannot temper metal if there is not fire. We must remember that Set is the lord of this physical plane or TASETT (the Red Lands) and it is meant to be a living hell.

Therefore, the Kemetic sages did not write about finances and health because they did not want us to become distract and focus all of our attention on making money and diet/health, which in the “conscious” community the latter has become the new religion.

Please hear me correctly. I did not say that they were not important because they are, but we must remember that we are here to strengthen our soul.

That being said, the way to improve your health and increase your finances is by following Osar (Asar) by teaching and helping people to heal themselves, so they can improve their own lives.

Why Are There So Many Gods and Goddesses in Traditional African Religions (Part II)

1 07 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Continuing our conversation from Why are there so many Gods  and Goddesses in African Religions (Part I).  The question that comes to mind is “How Do You Work with Your Archetypes?”

There are numerous ways to work with your archetypes, gods, goddesses, etc. but I have found that the best way to work with them is by first understanding how your mind works, so as to not fall into the trap of becoming superstitious because working with archetypes is kind of a magical process.  Therefore, for simplicity purposes, our mind is composed of three parts and they are the conscious, subconscious and Superconscious.  

So as to not make this post too incredibly long, the conscious is the part of our being that we use to make decisions.  

The conscious is the part of our being that we use to make choices and decisions. 

The subconscious is the part of the mind responsible for governing all of our processes that occur outside of conscious awareness, like the storing and governing of our personal experiences, memories, emotions, and beliefs, along with maintaining our autonomous body functions.  

While the Superconscious, on the other hand, is different from the subconscious in the sense that it is basically an unlimited storehouse of every living being on the planet. Since the Superconscious is the storehouse for everything it is omnipresent (everywhere), omnipresent and all-knowing, and functions according to the law of synchronicity.

We can think of the Superconscious as being like the Sun.  Sidebar:  Some of the older Kemetic traditions equated Ra and the Sun with the Superconscious., which was incorporated into other traditions, which is the reason all of the Kemetic creation theories pay homage in-one-way or another to Ra/Amun Ra.) 

As you know the Sun is full of raw and untapped power, which can be used to power anything. But, if you plugged a television set directly to the Sun. You and the television set would burn up because the intensity of the Sun’s heat and power is too great.  You would need a converter or some kind of tool to streamline the power of the Sun so that you can use it safely without harming yourself or anyone else, and this is what the subconscious does for us.

Our subconscious basically reflects whatever we believe to the Superconscious, which if held in our awareness for a period of time will become our reality.  

Now, the reason most spiritual work places emphasis on the subconscious is because the subconscious acts as a gateway to the Superconscious since its primary objective is to help us to physically survive.  What this means is that our subconscious basically determines what we want from the Superconscious. To put it plainly, since our subconscious governs our emotions we basically determine the type of life we want based upon how we believe and feel, and it is our Superconscious that indiscriminately makes what we believe and feel a reality.

The purpose of the subconscious is to help us to survive by protecting us from danger.  It accomplishes this by indiscriminately learning and memorizing everything that is in its environment, so that we are not hurt physically, mentally or emotionally.  One of the most familiar ways the subconscious protects us is by reminding us how it feels to be burned by fire or something hot. So every time we see fire, it is our subconscious that is reminding us to be careful. We respect the element fire and are cautious dealing with it because we all have a memory of either being burned or seeing someone burned that is stored away in our subconscious. Our subconscious uses this memory to remind us of the consequences of not being careful when handling fire.

But sometimes our subconscious can become too overbearing and will store memories or life lessons that are detrimental to our wellbeing even though it thinks it is doing the right thing. Typically these are traumatic memories that have made such a deep impression on our psyche that they have formulated beliefs and actually influence our actions and behaviors.  Most of the time these beliefs created by these traumatic memories cannot be erased and replaced by simply saying so because they are deeply embedded into our subconscious. When a traumatic event has been embedded into our subconscious whereas it shapes our beliefs.  Our subconscious dictates and even enslaves our conscious with these memories, thus preventing us from achieving the life that we want out of fear, guilt, and other inhibitions. Right now, part of the reason you are reading this post is that there is something you want or wanted to accomplish or do but it was your fear, guilt, and inhibitions that prevented you from doing so. Now, you walk around with a heavy heart full of regret because your subconscious beliefs and emotions are holding you back. 

This is what is called a crossed condition because the subconscious is not supposed to make choices and decisions for us.  This is the responsibility of our conscious.  The reason the subconscious has hijacked our life is that we have been led to trust our emotions over reasoning.  So we believe that everything that is good for us should feel good and everything that feels bad should feel bad.  This simple system of classifying works for touching fire but not for more complex matters such as choosing a career, mate, etc., hence the term crossed.

I have found that there are a lot of people who think they are cursed or that “God has forsaken them.” In truth, they have simply crossed themselves up with their beliefs. For instance, the other day I happened to turn on the tv and there was this lady complaining about how she could not find a man.  So she moped around all depressed and unhappy because she wanted a man and when one of her friends mentioned in disbelief that her boyfriend was cheating on her. The lady commented that there were only two types of men and they are, “The ones that cheat and the ones that have not got caught.”

The audience laughed but the reality is that this lady created her own limited paradigm.  She has crossed herself up and the reason she will not find a good man is that she believes that there are only two types of men and they are both unfaithful.  So, since she believes this, her subconscious will make sure that she will never meet any good men. 

The sad thing is that this lady could run smack dab into the man of her dreams but her subconscious beliefs and feelings will sabotage all of her chances of having a good and prosperous relationship because she believes that there are two types of men and they all are unfaithful.  This lady’s subconscious may also only ensure that she only meets bad men just to validate her beliefs that there are no good men.

It is important to understand that the reason our subconscious makes gross errors in our judgment in choosing a mate, a career choice, trusting people, etc. is that it has a limited perspective, which is solely based upon our personal experience.  The subconscious is like a child in the sense that it overgeneralizes solely based upon what it has experienced, which is our personal experience. 

Don’t get me wrong, when the subconscious generalizes over things like fire it is great because all over the world fire is hot and if not used correctly will cause harm.  But, the subconscious cannot generalize that all men are bad because human beings as a species are too dynamic. There are some aspects of men that can be generalized but not all of them because we have a unique home life, unique family and friends, unique cultural and historical backgrounds, etc. , and all of these factors are what makes each man on the planet uniquely different. Saying that there are no good men is like saying all men are the same or all women are the same, etc.

Now, if this lady is serious about getting a good man she has to uncross herself, which means change her beliefs by impressing upon her subconscious a new belief. Since most negative beliefs are impressed upon our subconscious through some emotional traumatic experience. The new belief has to be impressed upon the subconscious with a greater emotional force to overcome the old thinking and generate a new experience.  Basically, she needs to create and/or develop her own personal truth or personal maa.  

Establishing Your Personal Maa

Maa is the Kemetic word for balance, order, law, righteousness and truth but truth is relative and subjective. For instance, if I do not like brussel sprouts (which I am trying to but I don’t) and when I eat them they make me gag,  My personal maa is that brussel sprouts are not for me.  This does not mean that this vegetable is good or evil.  It simply means that for me this vegetable is not good.  Therefore,  your personal maa is knowing what works for you based upon your Spirit.   In the previous example with the lady experiencing relationship troubles,  She is basically living her life based upon someone else’s experiences.  When we our spiritually ignorant, we all do this by asking our family and friends their opinions on what we should do or the individuals we should choose to come into our circle.  We forget that we are dynamic beings so although one person may look good in a particular relationship does not mean he/she will be a suitable mate for you.  This is the reason we have to let our Superconscious take a more active role instead of relying on the whims of our subconscious. And, one of the most effective ways I have found to do this is by creating/developing your own personal maa by: 1) Adopting a story as a mental guide and.  2) Using the character in the story to symbolize aspects of the mind.

So that we are clear, the reason for creating/developing your own personal maa is because our subconscious mind, which you will recall is the part of our being that governs all of our personal memories, beliefs, emotions, and indiscriminately mimics whatever it is exposed to.  Communicates to us through symbols and is programmable but it cannot make decisions so it needs a model as a frame of reference.  Part of the reason our subconscious has led us astray so far is because it did not have anyone to model in regards to the things we want out of life.  As a result, our subconscious usually motivates us to foolishly model athletes, actors, entertainers, etc.  When you adopt a legend as a mental guide, it trains the subconscious to understand that it has a limited experience and must align itself with the Superconscious.

1) Choose a Legend

Choose a legend or story that you are fond with as a map of your mind. The more intricate the story the greater impact and insight the story will play in your life. 

2) Using the character in the story to symbolize aspects of the mind.

Label the character in the story based upon the aspects of your mind. 

You can choose any legend that you desire and radiates with you. For instance, if you like the Wizard of Oz  or The Wiz you can choose this legend and allow Dorothy symbolizes your conscious. The good witch is your Superconscious and the evil witch if your subconscious.  (This theme can be used for all fairy tales where there are two opposing witches.).  If you are familiar with the Hindu chakra system you can include this in your subconscious programming as the “yellow brick road.”  There are numerous ways you can play with this and you do not even need to stick with this story line.  You can weave other stories into your mythology as was done with the film series Shrek.   

Although you are encouraged to pick any legend you want, I personally would avoid choosing the Christian lore because of notable contradictions.   For instance, according to Christian teachings which is influenced by astrological theology, Jesus is the source of everything which is equivalent to the Superconscious.  However, religious dogma also portrays Jesus as the hero/savior of humanity thus indicating that the messiah is outside of our being, but the true hero/heroine in mythology around the world always corresponds to the conscious mind.  This means that Jesus is both the Superconscious and the conscious, which does not make sense to the subconscious part of our being because, the subconscious is very logical like a computer and needs clear instructions.   This combined with the racist and sexist perversion of the Christian message makes the Christian lore a poor model for our mind.  

This is the reason most Christians (including Jehovah Witness and Muslims who follow this similar path) have no individuality, feel as if they have no rights to question God/Jehovah/Allah (or messengers), and are borderline (if not) religious fanatics because, they have surrendered everything to the Superconscious part of their being.  Unfortunately, what a lot of people are realizing-particularly those that leave these religions of “least resistance” -is that while it may bring solace to give your burden to someone else (Jesus, God, etc.).  It does not excuse you from your destiny and the lessons you must learn.  For instance, if you have trouble managing your anger, it does not matter how many times you pray to Jesus or how many attributes of Allah you recite. You are still going to have this problem because you cannot just give it to something. You have to learn how to control your anger, which involves you working face-to-face with your neglected subconscious.  In this case you may be able to use the good angel/bad angel model but you have to remind yourself that this is an internal dialogue occurring within your mind and not outside of you. 

There are a lot of problems that arise when using the Christian lore as a model mainly because the early Christian writers decided at the Council of Nicaea to interpret the stories attributed to Jesus literally.  Instead of getting boggled down with trying to sort out what is good and what can be discarded, I just prefer to start afresh with another mythology such as the Story of Osar.

I personally am fond of the Kemetic Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) because it is ancient, it effectively helped the Kemetic people build a 3,000+ year civilization and it is full of metaphorical language.  I symbolize my conscious as Hru (Horus), the Superconscious as Osar and the overgeneralizing and childish nature of my subconscious as Set.

Once you commit your legend to memory and assign who your Superconscious, subconscious and conscious is going to be. 

Hru (left/Conscious),  Osar (center/Superconscious) and Set (right/subconscious)

All of the other characters becoming supporting cast members that will help you align to yourself with your Superconscious. The magick occurs when you start to trust your intuition and simply talk to these archetypes and tell them what is on your mind because the archetypes are linked to the Superconscious, which uses synchronicity as a form of delivery.  For instance, I have asked my Set why a particular behavior exists and he has shown or rather reminded me where I picked the negative behavior from. I have called upon my Djahuti (Thoth, see About Rau Khu) to explain to me how to solve a problem, and after a few minutes of thinking or worrying about the issue. I receive a response that just pops into my head and as soon as I do I issue my Djahuti words of gratitude.  I have talked to Hru (Horus) and receive a sign in the form of a hawk.  I have been traveling and been given signs from Npu (Anubis).   In other words for me, when I connect to my archetypes I also forge a bond with the spirit guides and animal totems associated with them.  I have written about all of this in my books just to prove that it works and explain from a scientific perspective why. 

We can have as many archetypes as we like because they exist to help us to make a better life.  The thing is we all have archetypes because generally speaking, we all have to deal with unpleasant events. We all encounter issues when dealing with people, and so on because these are universal.  So, we all have archetypes speaking to us all the time.  The problem that most of us had is that:  1) We have been told that all of the gods and goddesses are false gods and thereby powerless (useless) because we were listening to people who were literally worshiping a deity outside of themselves,  And, 2) We did not have a map of the human mind, so we did not know which of the voices (archetypes) to listen to.  

Now that we understand truly what archetypes are, and we see that Africans (and other people of color) never worshiped false gods and idols.  It becomes quite clear that our ancestors simply understood how to work the Divine’s greatest creation, which is the human mind.  

Hopefully, with this understanding, we can now make some drastic moves in our lives.
