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

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.

What Does It Mean to Live Kemetically?

18 07 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

As of March 2012, we have been in the Age of Aquarius, which abruptly began with a down pouring of information being made available all over the world due to the Internet.  As a result, a lot of people are interested in Kemetic spirituality and want to know what does it mean to live Kemetically.  The great thing about this particular time is that there are no limits to the information we can gain access to. For instance, historical records, reports and all sorts of documentation are just a few fingertips away as knowledge is made accessible to everyone.

However, the bad thing about this particular time is that there are no limits to the information we can gain access to. With all of these historical records, reports and all sorts of documentation just being a few fingertips away, there is no wisdom to assist in interpreting the new information.

What a lot of people do not understand is that we have a Ba (Superconscious), Ab (Conscious/Soul) and a sahu (subconscious). And, that most of our problems in life are due to the subconscious or sahu part of our being indiscriminately recording everything that we experience. This means that if you hear something or read something without having any wisdom about the subject, your sahu will automatically accept the information as absolute truth.

For the record, the reason the planet is in peril today is that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have all been interpreted by individuals who had access to the knowledge but no wisdom. Consequently, metaphorical stories and parables are interpreted literally. For instance, from an alchemic, esoteric and metaphysical perspective, God created Adam and Eve in Its image because God being masculine and feminine really loved Their image and wanted to ensure that Man and Woman had all of its power. So, Man was created to be the Light and Woman was created to be the Receptacle of the Light. As above, the masculine energy is the Sun and feminine energy is the Moon. So below, the masculine is fire, positive and light, while the feminine is water, negative and dark. All the while the all-knowing God allows the serpent to exchange the power between the two immortal beings.

It is the lack of wisdom that inspired fundamentalists to let the sahu part of their being to see the serpent as the devil who tempts Eve to seduce Adam, thereby bringing the downfall of humanity. It is this same lack of cognizance that makes these individuals see masculine energy as being strong and good and feminine energy as weak and evil. Thus, justifying the oppression, suppression, and persecution of women, and all religious and spiritual traditions invested in the mysteries of the divine feminine or lunar cults (e.g. earth-based religions, spiritualism practice, etc.).

Family. Some people in our community (Hoteppers) claim to be versed in Kemetic spiritual practices because they have read some books on Kemetic history, metaphysics, etc., and it had a strong positive impact on them. For this reason I am glad that it helped them.  Please understand that adorning yourself from head to toe with Egyptian symbols and having an extensive library full of Kemetic books is not knowledge and does not mean they are versed in Kemetic spirituality. This simply means that you are informed and aware of other authors’ (typically biased western trained archeologists, historians, philosophers, and fanatics) beliefs, ideas and theories. But if you have no wisdom because you are not applying any of the information that you receive to see if it is beneficial or not. Then you are doing the same disservice as religious fundamentalists have and continue to do by simply spouting off information to make yourself appear to be “deep”.  This is just a few steps away from beating people over the head as the fanatics have done with the Bible and Koran.  If you have to argue with another to make them see your point of view, then you are trying to convert them and that is pure evil.  Thus, indicating that you are following in the footsteps of Set and not Osar (Osiris). 

Set (Set-an or Satain) is the Kemetic devil. why symbolizes the worst aspects of our ego-self.

Anyone who practices Kemetic spirituality will tell you that you do not convert to Kemetic spirituality based upon the acceptance of certain beliefs and theories. This is because we are not trying to save people’s souls from going to hell. You convert or rather you are initiated into Kemetic spirituality through the transformation of your mind.  In other words, you are “saved” because you learn how to “save” yourself from certain dilemmas through divination, meditation, prayer, magick, ritual work, etc.  

The information we receive during this age is supposed to be life-changing. If you have a room full of books but you and your family are not spiritually and physically abundant. Then, you are not taking advantage of this Age appropriately. If you are engrossed in the current affairs, social affairs, and do not see these all as distractions to discourage you from coming into your GOD or GODDESS-NESS. Then you are not living Kemetically.

Please understand that I am not by any means stating that these things are not important. What I am saying is that if you claim to practice Kemetic spirituality then we do these things differently than the norm, like receive counsel through divination on major issues. We discuss matters with our ancestors and spirit guides to determine if someone or something is beneficial to our family or not. We perform magick in every area of our life because we understand that as Children of God that it is our right to do so.

If you are going to live Kemetically. Understand that all books are guides, which are instruments of Npu meaning they are simply meant to get you in the door alchemical, esoteric and metaphysical door. They open the door or present to you another world, but to live Kemetically you got to put down the book and work ‘dem Spirits.

Why They Don’t Want You to Honor Your Ancestors

10 07 2019


Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Did you know that in John 14:6; Hebrews 8:6l 9:15; 12:24 and 1 Timothy 2:5-6 that the bible tells us that there is only one mediator and that it is Jesus.   The bible also states in Luke 16:19-31;  2 Corinthians 5:6; Hebrews 9:27; and Revelations 20:11-15, that when people die they do not inhabit this world but they go to either heaven or hell.

What the bible fails to explain to us how we will know if our deceased loved ones have ascended to heaven or descended to hell.  The bible fails to explain to us why we see our deceased loved ones in our dreams and why some people have even reported that their deceased loved ones have come to them and given them warnings.

What most theologians gloss over and also fail to explain is why in Matthew 17:3, which states that Jesus went up to the mountain to Pray, while there  the disciples saw him speaking to Moses and Elijah who had long been dead (Jesus’ ancestors), when he came down, they saw no one with him, but Jesus reassured them and told them not to tell anyone what they had seen until he had risen from the dead.

It appears that the reason the bible fails to explain these phenomenon and other spiritual occurrences is either because they do not want us to truly be like Jesus who talked to his ancestors (Moses and Elijah) and/or they want us to be totally submissive to their religious dogma. Part of the reason most theologians gloss over this particular scripture is that it makes Jesus a human being with similar concerns as most of us, who talk to his ancestors for guidance and wisdom.

For the record, the Ancestors are not worshipped, they are honored and venerated.  The only reason ancestor honoring or ancestor veneration is called “ancestor worship” is because when the first Europeans encountered the practice among most non-Western cultures.  The Western culture fear of death and view that death is evil, made them assume that the African, Chinese, Japanese, Native American and other cultures that venerate their dead had a fascination with death, and demonized and branded the practice as “ancestor worship”.  Even when other Europeans engaged in ancestor veneration or a similar practice as the Roman Catholics who pray to the dead saints or have relics (skeletal remains) of famous apostles, they completely ignore it possibly because they are Europeans.

What these Europeans missed, if they were not so consumed in their ethnocentric views, is that the cultures that venerate their ancestors have a strong family bond and respect for one’s parents, grandparents, elders, and ancestors.  This is because ancestor veneration is proof that death is not to be feared because it is not the end.  Then again, maybe they wanted to miss this fact to encourage family dissension.

Ancestor veneration next to shamanism is humanity’s oldest spiritual tradition because the first man and woman walked the earth.  They have always wondered what happens after death. All of the burial rites that are performed all over the world in regards to wishing our deceased loved ones peace in the afterlife are the results of venerating the dead.

For instance, in Christianity, it is believed that a soul either goes to heaven or to hell.  Where heaven is imagined by most to be a place of rest and peace, while hell is believed to be a place of torment.  Ancestor veneration provides evidence that is missing from the bible on if our deceased loved ones have either gone to a place of rest or a place of torment.

Idealistically,  when a person dies and ascends to the heavens or a place of rest and peace, their passing is a peaceful event.  But, realistically speaking when most people die they have concerns that they carry over with them. Every deceased mother is concerned if her children are going to be taken care of after they are gone. Every deceased father is concerned if he has provided for his family all that they need when he has passed. Every grandparent is concerned if they have taught their children and grandchildren the wisdom they need to ensure family traditions, and so on.  According to some ancestral traditions rather we realize it or not, the reason we the living mourn our deceased loved ones is that deep within our soul, death has robbed us of an individual who can help guide us in life.

Thankfully through ancestor veneration, we are able to put our ancestors’ concerns for us–their living descendants–and our concerns–their guidance and wisdom– to rest.  By remembering our ancestor likes certain foods, drinks, specific scriptures out of the Bible, etc. Our ancestors are able to impart their guidance and wisdom regarding the difficulties we have in our life to us through inspiration.

Insight from the ancestors on what to expect in the afterlife is how the Kemetic people knew about the Final Judgment

So, as you can see, there is no “worship” involved at all. In fact, ancestor veneration is a very pragmatic practice, which is the reason it is the oldest spiritual practice in the history of the planet that is practiced all over the world.  It is also the reason the Kemetic people were able to develop their elaborate spiritual religion and tradition. Basically, it was insight from the ancestors about what to expect in the afterlife, which made the Kemetic sages develop their spiritual practices to prepare the living.

All of these weird tales about the ancestors being evil is crap that Hollywood created because people love the thrill of being frightened similar to riding a rollercoaster.  And, it is easier to scare people about their ancestors if they are ignorant of this spiritual practice.

Our ancestors are our greatest allies, friends, and helpers, and through honoring and remembering them. They guide us, protect us, move obstacles and teach us so that we can have a better life.  For more information on how to work with your ancestors see ​Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way.

Did You Forget?

9 07 2019


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.

Beware of Kemetic Bulls***!

26 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know what Family? Ever since the showing of The Hidden Color (HC) docufilm series there has been a slight elevation of consciousness but a massive elevation of BS.  Understand. When I say a slight elevation of consciousness it is because those of us who have been conscious for some time, to the point that we never even called ourselves “conscious,” that after watching HC.  We all said the same thing, “That’s good. That’s not totally correct but okay, it is a starting point.” Everyone I know said the same thing because there is a lot of good information presented in these series, but it is just that. Information. And, the interesting thing is that it barely scratches the surface of how deep our ancestors are.  Think about it. If our ancestors walking alongside the Nile almost 3000+ years ago, do you really think you could sum it up in one or two videos? If you think so, you really do not know how deep we really are. I will explain here shortly.

But for those who are new to this; those who think it is cool to have a Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) name or some other suffix behind it; those who think it is cool to rock a natural hairstyle wear a dashiki, have an Egyptian tattoo and some Egyptian jewelry, etc. took this in another direction.  These clowns watched the film, memorized everything that was said, created a blog or Youtube site, and professed to be conscious or “woke.” Now, they sit around creating outlandish titles (and they get paid for this) to get hits and likes because they wear an Egyptian name and people think they are talking about Kemetic spirituality but they have nothing to do with Kemetic spirituality.

Family, there are two types of Kemetic Bulls***ers.  The first group and the largest group are these “conscious” people who have never read a book about Kemetic spirituality.  The first sign that they are spurting Kemetic Bulls*** is that they are attacking others who do not share their views. If these individuals were truly into Kemetic spirituality they would know that we are all at different levels of spiritual growth and that there is not one spiritual path. Therefore, these individuals have simply taken their Christian (Baptist, COGIC, Apostolic, Jehovah Witness, etc.) and Muslim (Sunni, Shiite, etc.) ideologies and imposed it on consciousness.  In other words, they are the still christians or muslims arguing that Jesus (or Mohammed) said do this but now they are wearing some African garb, the RBG colors and rocking a natural wig.    

The second Kemetic Bulls***ers are these so-called “conscious” people who have read book but they have not sat long enough to obtain any wisdom. These people think that reciting a bunch of historical facts and other details about Kemet is Kemetic spirituality.  The first sign that these people are Kemetic Bulls***ers is that they always have a bookcase full of books to make it appear that they are intelligent. All they are doing is boosting their ego and the ego remember is symbolized by Set (the Lord of Chaos and Confusion).  This is the reason there is so much controversy and dissension associated with these individuals.

Let me explain that these individuals are actually very “learned.” Meaning they have mimicked the information perfectly like Djahuit’s (Thoth) baboon.  Understand. Information is the pathway to wisdom but it is not wisdom. Wisdom comes from actually applying information over a period of time. The information has marinated in your spirit to the point that you know what works for you.

Proof that they are “learned” and have no wisdom is that they will give you the basic information about a Kemetic divinity. For instance, if you said Anubis, they will tell you “He is the god of death, the first god of the underworld, a jackal headed god, the god of embalming,” which is all information you get from wikipedia. People who have a working personal experience with Anubis such as myself may say, “Anubis or Npu. I just talked to this spirit and told him to help me find something. Afterwards we shared a cigar and some rum together.” Then, they will laugh because they understand that Anubis is an archetype that exists within them and the Universe. Understand the difference?

Npu – Watching and Weighing the Soul of the Dead

Family. There is no such thing as good or evil, which means there is a lesson you can learn from everything. One of the things I learned about the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was that the best way to deter a movement is by diluting it with propaganda.

Get it right. I am not pointing fingers and saying who is and who is not an agent of or Kemetic Bulls***ers. I am simply saying watch out for the Kemetic BS! That is anyone and anything promising to deliver something just because it has a Kemetic name or word attached to it.

I fell for this a couple of times. I am lying. I fell for this a few times. I remember I purchased some products (at different times) by well-known individuals within the “conscious” community because it had the word “Kemetic” on it, an ankh on it or some other icon tying it to Kemet.  I remember I was like Po from Kung Fu Panda, eagerly waiting to receive the secret Dragon Scroll. Because, I had psyched myself up to think that when this book, video, etc. arrived in the mail, it was going to totally change my life.

Once I received it, I was so disappointed because it was not what I had imagined it to be. None of these things delivered what they promised, but in a way all of these products did deliver something. I was just too caught up in the western “savior mode (thinking something outside of me can save me)” to see it because the answer was always within me.

Let me tell you something about Kemetic spirituality.

Venerating the Dead

Have you ever wondered why the Kemetic people never left any detailed texts on how to raise your family, how to live healthy, the best foods or best dietary lifestyle, the best business plan, etc.? Have you ever wondered why the Kemetic people for thousands of years kept writing the same after death theme in their books and writing the same hieroglyphic texts on the walls?  Think about it. Three thousand plus years of nothing but texts about death.

TASETT – the Lower Kemet/lower self/subconscious – sahu part of our being. TASETT also represents the SAHU, KHAB, KHABIT & KA Divisions of the Spirit

It is because the Kemetic people understood that this physical world was not real and is based solely upon our subconscious or ego-self/Set.  Meaning, nothing in this physical realm will bring us true happiness, peace, prosperity, etc. It only satisfies the ego because it is short term and temporal. This is the reason money cannot give us prosperity, drugs give a temporary happiness, etc. The physical realm and everything within it is an allusion, it is TASETT – the Red Lands (desert) full of mirages (empty promises).  This is the reason the Kemetic people never invested a lot of time and energy into staying here. This is also the reason you cannot find ancient texts written by them on trying to preserve life here. Are these subjects important? To each its own, it is relative.  But the most important subject that our Nilotic ancestors did not want us to forget was that what we call the real world is an illusion.

Understand. The illusion, the maya is that this physical realm is concrete and final when in fact, it is simply a physical manifestation of our beliefs, ideas and thoughts. Yes. If you are having a miserable physical experience right now, check the beliefs, ideas and thoughts that you hold in your awareness.

That is Kemetic spirituality. Period.

The reason Kemetic writers wrote so many texts on death is because in the end, your afterlife is going to be a mere reflection of how you lived your life. Meaning the beliefs, ideas and thoughts you held in your awareness during life are going to be the ones that determine how your soul is going to exist in the next realm.

Judgement Scale

When you really understand this means every experience is propelling you to be a god or goddess. For instance, if you have anger issues, you are going to find yourself put in situations where you will easily lose your temper, until you learn how not to react to everything angrily and trust that the Divine within you will work in your favor without you become irate. This means rather you adopt a certain dietary lifestyle, dress a certain way, adorn your hair al naturelle or dyed and laid to side, has not a damn thing to do with your destiny. Are they important, sure if you want them to be but your salvation is depended on you learning how not to react to everything angrily and trust that the Divine within you will work in your favor without you become irate. Period.

Understand. If you have anger issues, then every time you find yourself in situations where you lose your temper becomes your daily judgment where you stand before Osar (Osiris), as shown above.

Again, is your diet important, your hairstyle, etc. are they important? Is it important that you learn how to make money? Again, it is all relative. For some people, you may have to adopt a certain diet to help you but it is not a requirement. For others, you may have to adorn yourself in a certain manner, but don’t get it twisted.  If you incarnated here to learn how to deal with your anger, your salvation is on you learning to deal with your anger. That is your destiny or purpose of being here.

Once you understand this, then everything is relative to your destiny or purpose of being here. You can start a business, plan a revolutionary movement, work to build up your community, etc. so long as you remember, to trust that the Divine within you will work in your favor and do not take it personal by becoming irate (if your destiny deals with overcoming anger).

OMG! This is when the real magic occurs. You are ready to blow a gasket but you remain calm trusting the Divine within you, while someone is acting a fool and trying to engage you in a fight.  Then, you are rewarded for being calm and the person slips and breaks the arm for offending you, hence the gods and goddesses (spirits) are fighting your battle. This is what Kemetic spirituality is about.

To understand your destiny, all you need to do is study the recurring problems you continue to have in your life. Know that Kemetic spirituality is not about following this person or trusting that something is going to save you. It is all about learning how to trust your Osar, hence resurrect the Osar within you who for most of your life has been a silent and whispering voice.

African Spirituality SAVES You MONEY

3 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

Npu (Anubis) - The Opener of the Way

Npu (Anubis) – The Opener of the Way

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

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

So, the ball starts rolling the way I decide.

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

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

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

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

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

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

You Cannot Offend God…Com’on Grow Up

8 06 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know back in the day there was this real popular church musical that my Mom and I remember all of her friends wanted to see called Your Arms Too Short to Box With God. The title was catchy and I remember people going nuts trying to see this sold out musical.  But it conveyed a message that sticks with many of us today despite not actively participating in the church.

The message is that somehow we think we can offend the Supreme Being.

I mean, I have come across people alleging to be “woke” and reciting the 42 Laws of Maat (the 42 Declarations of Maat) all because they do not want to offend the Creator, which is just baffling to me.

Look, it is real simple.

If God is omnipotent, omniscient and so awesome as most people say God is.  Why is it that people think that they can offend God? I mean if we could offend God by saying a cuss word, lying, being dishonest, etc. What does that say about our god who is so easily offended, yet is supposed to know everything including our weaknesses?  If you don’t want to say it because your Set (ego) has you scared and shook, then I will say it for you. If our God is so easily offended then it means that our God is WEAK!

There. I said it. I know, I am going to get struck down by lightning by God, but sorry it is actually Zeus who strikes human beings down with lightning because he is easily offended.  Not our Perfect Creator, Nebertchar or Nzambi Mpungo.

If we really knew who God was we would understand that God is too abstract and incomprehensible for us to understand. This means that God does not discriminate and does not have any likes and dislikes. God also does not give a damn about good and evil or right and wrong because if God did the same air that fills our lungs would not have filled Hitler and every other monstrous person that has and is walking the planet.

Think about that for a minute.  God gives the breath of life to both allies and foes alike, so God does not play or pick sides. God does not favor the spider or the fly. They are all insignificant to Our Creator.

So you know that this means?

It means that human beings are like ants to God, which means God is basically a “kind” version of an antbully.

In other words, God does not really give a damn what is going on in our life, no more than you would give a damn about the life of ants and the predators that ants have to deal with. Think about that.

This means one thing. If you are going through some hell, you better tap into the Divine Power that God instilled within you because if you cry out “God save me.”  God is most likely going to respond back and say,”Save yourself.”

If you are dealing with some type of indigenous spirituality God might even add, “I gave you got Ancestors, Spirit Guides, Guardian Spirits and divination.”

Kemetic spirituality is not about being in another religion. It is about learning how to save yourself by mastering universal principles such as the Seven Codes of Maa. We cannot offend the Supreme Being. We can only offend one another. Its time to abandon these childish, fanatical, spiritually immature religious belief of the Children of God, and step into our big boy and girls underoos (underwear) and become Adults of God or simply put just Gods and Goddesses.
