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

22 05 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understand the difference?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to Defeat the “hidden enemy/hidden hand”

23 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

Maa Aankh with Utchat

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

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

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

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

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

Who are the “hidden enemy”?

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

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

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

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

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

Reconnecting to our Aakhu (Ancestors).

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

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

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

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

I Was A God Before I Was a Berber, Muslim, Moor, Christian, Hebrew, Alien, etc.

17 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I have been asked by a lot of Family on some of the claims that we were originally Moors, Muslims and/or Hebrews, Alien, Atlantean (Atlantis), etc. prior to being brought to the Americas.  Previously, I would shun away from these discussions because personally I could never see how any of it was practical and could empower me and my loved ones. I respect everyone’s beliefs and ideas, and if something works for you, so be it.  But I have had trolls try their best to sabotage this Kemetic spiritual movement, by posting all sorts of unchecked facts and ridiculing the sacrifices that our ancestors have made for the liberties we have. It is sad, that these individuals prefer to waste the opportunities that our ancestors had sacrifice for us to have by standing on the corner and shouting out rhetoric or troll sites focused on true empowerment. So, here is what I have learned and really why I believe many of these people who claim to be conscious do not want us to know about the truth about Traditional African Culture.

The Moorish Christian War

Before we begin, the Moors is the term that was used to describe those African, Arabs and Europeans who converted to Islam.  They were originally called Berbers which is an ancient Egyptian word meaning “outlander.” Initially the Berbers were called Mauri because they were inhabitants of the Roman colony Mauretania Caesariensis which later became Mauritius. This area consisted primarily of modern Algeria, Morocco, Libya, Tunisia and Mauritania, which is the reason the people were called Mauri.  The Greek name for this Berber tribe was Maurusi.  The Spaniards however referred to them as Morenos, the Portuguese said Mouros, while the English simply called them Moors.

Now, the Moors were the custodians of the Kemetic spiritual sciences after Kemet had fallen and they used this knowledge to build the Moorish Empire.  The Moorish Empire included Spain, Portugal, and Sicily.  The Moors ruled Spain from around 700 A.D. and were the ones responsible for bringing Europe, out of the “Dark Ages.”

But everyone was not happy with the Moors because unbeknownst to them.  There was a plot by the Christian Europeans (Spaniards, Italians and the French) to rid Spain of them and around 1482, they succeeded. It is not exactly known why the Europeans wanted to rid themselves of the Moors because during this time Europeans were not color conscious as they are today, and the Moors were seen as their saviors.  However, it is believed that it was due to the Moorish strict Islamic laws. Europe, you will recall was in poverty and the cheapest meat at that time was pork, but under Moorish law they could not consume it. So, it is possible that the coup d’état was driven by European hunger.  Whatever the case, to celebrate the expulsion of the Moors, the people ate pork. To this day, Spain is known for its special breed of pork from Iberia. Another popular Spanish celebration to commemorate the expulsion of the Moors is the Running of the Bulls, thus indicating through symbolism that Moorish rule was most likely viewed by most Europeans as being cruel and tyrannical. This would also explain the reason why similar traditions were created in other Spanish controlled areas such as bull fighting in Mexico.

In fact, most (if not all) the carnival celebrations began to commemorate the expulsion of the Moors and the acceptance of Roman Catholicism, which is the reason these celebrations continue to this day in territories that have a high concentration of Spanish and Portuguese influences and are Catholic. In most of these carnivals, the antagonist was always portrayed as black in color to symbolize the Moors.

It wouldn’t be long after that other Europeans unfamiliar with the Moorish and Christian war would join in and see the black antagonist and assume it was about all black people. In fact, many of the blacks in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominica and even the Mardi Gras Indians who were aware of the racist undertone changed the carnival theme to celebrate their collaboration with the Amerindians to end of slavery.

Upon defeating the Moors, the Spaniards gave them two alternatives which was to either return to Islamic countries where they came from or denounce their faith, accept Christianity.  While some stayed, most of the Moors settled in Morocco where they along with Arab traders participated in the Arab-Slave trade, which enslaved Africans throughout the Sahara and continues to this day.

The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade

After the Spaniards expelled the Moors, they took their sciences, maps and information about navigation to come to what they called the New World. Again, the question that we must ask is why? Historical records indicate that the Europeans began exploring because of the lack of food. Europe remember was in the “Dark Ages” and there was a severe food shortage because Europe was cut off from the Asian Silk Road.  The Italian Christopher Columbus was bankrolled by the Spaniards and when he set sail, he was trying to reach Japan but landed in the Americas in 1492.  Upon his arrival, Columbus called the people Indian because he was looking for Asia.  Another interesting fact that should be remembered is that after the Europeans came to the Americas, potatoes, corn, tomatoes, and beans, which are all foodstuff native to the Americas became widely available, thus verifying that it was a lack of resources.

As imagined, the Spaniards greatly profited from their exploration, which attracted the attention of the neighbors, the Portuguese who were also once under the Moorish influence.  When the Portuguese set sail, they were initially just exploring and found their way to West Africa so that they could create trade to improve their country’s lot.  Around 1483 the Portuguese encountered the BaKongo in the Kongo-Angolan region.  Astonished by the European technology and culture, the ruling Kongo king converted to Christianity and declared the new faith the state religion. Later, he established a treaty with the Portuguese, which opened the doors for the transatlantic slave trade.

By 1494, the Portuguese had established a strong foothold in West Africa and were regularly trading Africans whom they had captured along the coast.  However, Portuguese traders were enslaving every African they came across and totally breaking the treaty rules. Now, how did the Portuguese know to go to West Africa for slaves? They saw the Moors do it because it was a regular practice to enslave anyone who was not a Moslem, which included the Africans who were initially enslaved first by Arab traders. The Portuguese were attracted to this lucrative industry and their involvement turn it to a global trade.

With the Spanish dominating the Americas and the Portuguese controlling West Africa, an agreement was reached between the two countries. Consequently, the first Africans who were enslaved and taken to the Americas were obviously the people from the Kongo region, which is the reason the Kongo influence in Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, and Jamaica is so prevalent. The first Africans taken to North America were also from the Kongo-Angolan region.  All of these people were captured and sold between the Portuguese and Spaniards.

By the time the other European countries got involved in the slave trade, the war between the Moors and Christians had been long forgotten. The Dutch, French and British simply saw the slave trade as a means to grow their respective country’s wealth.  As a result, all the people with black and brown skinned were seen as primitive Africans and were treated as such.  When these European countries entered the trade, they abducted entire communities, which is the reason we find an extensive number of Yoruba people in Brazil and Cuba, Dahomeans and Fons in Haiti, Akans in Jamaica and so on.

Therefore, it is a myth that most of the slaves brought to the Americas were Moslem.  If this were the case, Islam would have been a thriving religion throughout the Americas but it was not.  Another common myth that some people use to encourage us to join Islam (or some version of it), is based upon Alex Haley’s Roots, which claims that many of the Africans brought to North America were Moslems. Again, the late Bro. Dick Gregory stated that this story was completely fictional.  Some will even state that Joseph Cinqué (c. 1814 – c. 1879) also known as Sengbe Pieh, which the film Amistad was based upon shows that most of the Africans were Moslems, but this is not the case. Also, it should be noted that according to some researchers, when Cinqué returned to Africa he engaged in the trade of slaves according to missionary letters that author William A. Owens, claimed to have.

For the record there were Jewish African who were captured and enslaved as well but they are catching worse hell. Again, were they all Hebrews? Not hardly and using the bible (especially that whole descendants of Ham theory) to justify our presence is a mute point.  Considering the fact that Noah did not curse Ham/Kham or Kem but he cursed Canaan but it ridiculous to even debate this considering the fact that Noah was not even real. The whole Noah Ark story is a colorful metaphor that people have been interpreting literally for hundreds of years. Get real. I would rather embrace a story that verifies my divinity then, someone else’s servant as we have been reduced to by referring to us as Hebrews, Gentiles., etc.  How about call us by the name our Kemetic ancestors called us, “NUK OSAR (I AM GOD).”

Now, lets be clear.  Were there Muslim who were enslaved and taken to the Americas? Absolutely.  Proof of this can be seen in American blues music when compared to Malian music.  Another example of the Islamic influence can be seen in the Afro-Cuban religion Palo Mayombe, where the common greeting is Sala Melecum, Melecum Sala which is the Creolized As Salim Alikum.  But the Palo Mayombe religion is not Islamic, it is very Kongo and is based upon the Kongo Cross (shown below).

The Kongo Cross

There is also an Islamic influence in the Creolized Caribbean Spiritism traditions as well, which verifies that were African Moslems but these traditions do not have a strong Islamic influence.

They have a strong Kongo and Yoruba influence, not Hebrew, not Muslim, etc. Even in North America, Kongo artifacts such as Kongo cosmogram used in the Underground Railroad have been found, not any Islamic or Jewish artifacts.  It was based upon this understanding that led me to see how these Kongo concepts and principles have their roots in Kemet via the Maa Aankh, thus reclaiming our ancestral theology that was lost during slavery.

So, why are all of these people say that we were Muslims, Hebrew or some other fallen and forgotten people?

It is for two reasons:

First), many people say and repeat these myths because they have been succumbed by the erroneous belief that we lost our culture, when in fact. We did not lose our culture, we lost the philosophy and theology behind our culture. Many of our elders have been doing libations, setting plates and honoring our ancestors without even knowing why. If you go to any Black Church, you will see proof that our culture survived.

The Second reason people continue to repeat this myth is because in the minds of most, Africans were and are primitive people living in grass huts.  Traditional African culture is viewed by many as backwards to the point that many are simply ashamed of it.  It is for this reason, contemporary Africans migrating to the U.S. and Europe will not even claim to believe in ancestors or spirits.  Simply put, it is more acceptable and reputable to say that we are Moslem, some distant Jewish people or some other group then, it is to say that we are Yoruba, Akan, Fon, Kongo, or other African people who practice a form of Vodun beliefs.  These so-called “conscious men” do everything within their poser to distance themselves from traditional Africa, which is why you will hear they call Africa terms like Akubulan and Asia, thus claiming we are Asiatic or Afro-Asiatic. If the truth be told, the original names of Africa were Kemet, Kush and Aethiopia. This is what the Greeks called it when they encountered the people from this region but that’s besides the point.  The point is that by claiming we are all of these other labels, we are simply embracing another form of self-hatred.  Let me say it again, all of these labels are another form of SELF-HATRED, pure and simple.

I do not claim any of these labels. I do not even claim to be Kemetic.  For record keeping purposes and for the sake of this discussion, I claim to be an Afrikan in America. All of these people claiming to be this or that are afraid to be God, so they settle for being a Child of God. Not me. My African ancestors created a culture to cultivate our divinity and it was dispersed throughout Sub-Sahara Africa among traditional African people. It was this slavery foolishness and all of these other foreign influences that disrupted our progress as a people. By embracing of the traditional African spirituality, we are able to pick up where we left off.

The question that we should ask is why these people do not want us to claim our traditional African heritage and why do they use the bible, koran or some other “holy” book to justify what they are saying?

It is because of two reasons:

First, they do not want to empower women, which are the critical factors to our spiritual and physical liberation.

Because we live in a male-dominant society, when it comes to Kemet or any other indigenous culture, we always hear about the great men warriors and priests.  But, the first priests of Kemet were actually women, just like the early shamans around the world were women. If you go back and read Greek history you will find that they always talked about the great oracle of Apollo, Delphi, etc. but, what they do not tell you is that the oracles were usually women. Not only that, most of the slave revolts that occurred in the Americas were incited and initially led by women. Women were highly valued in traditional African societies because of their psychic skills, which allowed them to foresee the future.  Hence the importance of Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis), who is honored as the Divine Mother who nurses and births the nation.

Oset and Hru

Understand. We all have psychic abilities, which for most people are in a latent state, but women psychic skills are a little bit more active then most. Most of these male-chauvinistic religions take advantage of women psychic abilities by using their psychic energies just to draw in more devotees and parishioners to make a select few money. Once you have money, you basically have power to do whatever you want. This is reason you do not see any women imans, women rabbis, etc. in these male-dominated religions because they do not want a woman in a position of power.

This is not the case in traditional Afro-Diaspora religions and traditions because women are recognized as a vital part of the whole. In traditional African women are the opposite of the male puzzle necessary for creating life both physically and spiritually. They are the Tefnut to Shu, the Yin to Yang.  A woman with spiritual discipline was highly prized in Africa because through these women psychic abilities, African nations were able to change the course of war.  Remember, the Zulu king, Shaka kaSenzangakhona also known as Shaka Zulu, was guided by an elderly woman, whom European writers said was a spooky witch doctor, but this was all a ploy to discourage the Zulus from embracing their spirituality.

The second reason they want us to forget it so that they can use it for themselves. 

Anyone who has read and studied history knows that the “enemy” is big on culture appropriation. We have seen this with our music, artistic expression, religious beliefs and practices.  Historically what happens is that as soon as we get tired of something because it has been demonized, we abandon it and the culture vultures claim it, flip it and use it to empower them and further oppress us.  This attack on our ancestral spirituality has already began in Haiti where Vodun is the official religion where people are abandoning it and embracing Christianity to escape the stigma.  The same attack is being waged throughout the Afro-Latin America such as in Brazil and Venezuela.

Basically, “they” know that traditional African religions (ATR) and traditional African derived systems/practices (ADS) work. They have known about this for years, which is the reason they continue to demonize them in order to discourage us from returning back to them. Claiming that we were ancient Jews, Muslims, Berbers, Moors, Aliens, people from Atlantis, whatever, are all distractions to discourage us from rediscovering that we are God.   I have yet to see any of these holy books that were written tell me I am God because we as a race of people are older than all of these holy books that these people keep citing.

There is only one holy book that I know of, which they do not want us to read, that tells us “You are a God,” and it is the Pert em Hru (the so-called Egyptian Book of the Dead).  This is the only holy book I am interested in so that I can remind my wife, “Babe, You are a God” and we can instill in our child, “Honey, you are a God.” So, that when we get into a bind, we can invoke our divine powers within and create change.

This is the purpose of spirituality. It is not get out of one religion and join another dogmatic religion. It is to remind yourself who you are, so when these people claim that we are this and that. Know that they are repeating the same rhetoric that was told them because they do not know who they are and are afraid to embrace their divinity.

I Hate the “This is What They Did in Africa” Mantra (Living Maa)

12 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Let’s get right to it. I am so tired of hearing people tell me that “This is what they did in Africa” to justify their crazy beliefs, ideas, thoughts and practices. I mean, I get it and I understand why people say it because in the western world where we are taught to believe only in what we can physically measure (touch, taste, smell, hear and see). It is more convenient to say “This is what they did in Africa” then it is to say, “I am trusting my Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris, the Lord or Higher Self).”

But, here is the thing….Africa is not a country. Africa is a continent with 54 countries.  The people within the continent of Africa don’t speak African. There are over 2,000 languages spoken in the continent of Africa. Nigeria alone has 200 languages that are spoken within its country.  Africa is not one gigantic forest with millions of people living in huts. They have forests, savannas and thriving metropolis and industries because Africa is composed of numerous cultures.

What am I saying?

I am saying that Africa does not have a homogeneous society or culture.

When you say, “This is what they did in Africa” what part of Africa are talking about? Are you talking about the East, West, North or South of Africa? Which ethnic group are you speaking of that they did this? When they “did this in Africa” when did they do it and why did they do it? What was the purpose? Did “They do it” a million years ago, a thousand years ago, a hundred years ago or are they doing it now?

You get where I am going with this? Stop using “Africa” like the bible and the Koran to justify your silliness. When will people understand that what they did in Africa does not mean it is going to work over here. Just like what we do over here is not going to necessarily work over there.

Now, let me be honest, and tell you that I used to say this same stupid mantra too because I came across Family who would use it to justify everything they believed from diet to religious practices. All of that changed when I met and asked my godfather who was a Lukumi (Santeria) priest and member of the Abakua Society, why the Yoruba religion was not practiced in Cuba exactly the same way it is practiced in Nigeria in Cuba. For instance, why did they syncretize the orishas with the saints. My godfather told me in the simplest terms, “Because we ain’t in Africa!”

What works in Africa works in Africa but that doesn’t mean it is going to work here. This is what I keep trying to get Family to understand about Kemet. The Kemetic people never had to deal with systemic racism, capitalism, socialism, etc.  The Kemetic people lived in an agrarian kingdom with a relatively loving ruling class who cared about all of her citizens within her border. Prior to the advent of the slave trade and imperialism, the Akans, Fons, Yoruba, Ibo, Bantu-Kongo and various other ethnic groups did not live in a society that discriminated against people because of the color of their skin. If you offended the Ancestors, the Deified Ancestors and disrupted the order of the community, then that’s when the elders took you to the side and reeducated you and everyone to correct the error in our living. It was a spiritual culture and this is what it means to live in a spiritual, holistic culture, but we do not live there anymore. This is the reason when the Africans were brought to the Americas, their religions, spiritual practices and spiritual traditions could not survive unless they became more aggressive and defensive.   In other words, the spiritual practices and traditions had to adapt to the new circumstances in order to be useful.

This “It was done in Africa” mantra is a Setian (Egotistical) approach to fixing problems.  If you will recall, our Set (lower self/ego) relies on past experiences and only believes in the physical reality.   In other words, it only sees one side of the picture. It does not see the whole, so it discourages us from aligning with our Higher Self or Osar.  One of the ways it does this is by telling us “This is what was done in Africa (or China, India, etc.)” to get us to focus on the past or past experience because Set is stubborn and does not want to change but we have to realize that Maa is about living truth based upon perspective.

Let me give you another example. If you have ever eaten the Ghanian dish fufu (coco yam) or the Nigeria cuisine gari (cassava/yucca) you know that these are two of the main starches that are consumed throughout the West and Central Africa. I love eating fufu and gari but I cannot eat these dishes all of the time as it is done in parts of Africa for several reasons.  For one, I live in the United States and I am not as active as many who eat these foods as a staple of their diet.  Second, they are high in carbohydrates, which means if I am not very active these foods may cause my body to store additional sugar/fat.  Now, notice that I did not say that these foods were bad.  In fact, they are more nutritious than the regular potato but it is because of my lifestyle and the environment that I live in, which makes consuming these foods all of the time a problem for me.  Again, does this mean that I should not eat coco yam or cassava even though they were consumed in Africa? No, it simply means that if I am going to eat them I need to make adjustments to my lifestyle or limit my consumption of them. This is what it means to live according to Maa by taking everything in perspective.

It is not Maa to live your life based upon an outdated practices and traditions. Presently as I write this, I know guy right now who is from Ghana having the hardest time trying to succeed socially because he is still doing things as if he was in Accra. This guy has upset a lot of people he has come in contact with because he tells them he is proud that the “British colonized the world.” He literally believes that the British saved humanity through their savage ways, so when he said it aloud and was verbally accosted he did not understand why. Clearly, this guy does not see the whole picture and only believes what the imperialists have told him in the history books. Now, another reason for mentioning this guy is to show that everyone from Africa is not “conscious.” Just like everyone who wears their hair natural, in braids, in dreads, etc. is not “conscious” either. We need to stop repeating this mantra because all it does is make us focus on what was written in a book or some other superficiality.

If we stopped saying, “This is what they did in Africa” and just say, “Hey, I did it.” It is more convincing and let’s people see the Maa.  The Maa is not about trying to see how many people will follow you.  It is opening peoples’ eye so that we can change the “rotation of the planet.” Stop giving in and encouraging people to follow their Set. Remember, Set wants us to do anything and everything but listen and follow our Osar (Higher Self). Set will say anything and everything to keep us from hearing our Osar by telling us what we are doing is wrong, not supported by others, not favored by the majority, not the popular thing, etc.

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Living your life according to Maa means trusting the God within you and testing the suggestions that are given to you.  Yes, you have to test it because remember the old scripture “every spirit is not a spirit of God (spirit of the Higher Self).” So, you have to test it and try it out to make sure it is the truth that is best for you and that it is coming from your Higher Self and not your lower self and some other low influences (negative ancestral spirits or aapepu).  And, by the way, testing and trying it out does not just mean seeing if the information is in a book.  You have to try it, test it out, see if it works for you and if it works for others.  This is the only way to know that a suggestion, comment, etc. is coming from the Higher Self.

This goes for people too. Most of you know that I come from a very religious family background. I had people tell me all of the time, “God said fill in the blank.” and when I was younger I would follow these so-called prophecies and wind up broke and hurt.  So, guess what? My Osar and Aakhu (Ancestors and Spirit Guides) know that they cannot approach me like this. They also know that I am going to put to the test whatever they tell me. So, when I get messages now, it is verified. If I am doing a ritual to Npu (Anpu, Sebek, Anubis or the Divine Messenger/Trickster of the Higher Self) and receive a message telling me I need to do something. It is verified through some type of omen. Npu may send three dogs across my path or I bump into a person wearing red and black, which are his colors.  I may be at the store and some stranger comes to me out of the blue and tells me something, thus verifying what the message and pointing me in the direction I need to go.  In other words, “God does not give a vision without giving provisions.”

So if a person claims to have your best interest at heart and state that their information is truth. You can test it to see if it is Maa and that individual should not have a problem with you doing so because, if they are truly sagely and of God.  They should understand that in these days and time we cannot take nothing for face value.  If this individual gets upset and offended, then they most likely are feeding your info to boost their Set (Ego).

Understand the more you listen to your Osar, the happier and better off you will be because you are free.

Remembering Haiti and the Real Revolution

10 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

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

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

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

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

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

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

What “They” Will Not Tell You About Being Conscious

9 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

There is a lot of confusion about what Kemetic spirituality is because there are a lot of people claiming to be conscious and “woke.”  But, they do not have an idea what the concept means.  A lot of these people are “playing spiritual” and are simply riding the “conscious” bandwagon because it is the “in” thing.  So, let me explain what it really means to be spiritual for the truth seeker.

We are told in this western society that the only reality that exist and is worth mentioning is the physical realm.  As a result, we are educated, taught, trained, etc. to assess, evaluate and measure everything that we encounter based upon our five physical senses. Everything and everyone we meet, we are told to judge them based upon what we see and hear. This approach to life is what is known as Cartesian logic and it is because of this approach, most of us are prone to believe only what we can see and touch.

The problem with this approach is that this western way of thinking it is limited because our universe is not just composed of a physical reality.  Every other non-western culture knows and understands this.  If you pick up a book on feng shui, the first thing the Chinese authors talk about is how the western viewpoint is warped.  If you pick up a book on Hinduism they will say the same thing because there is a spiritual reality that exists as well, which is hidden to our awareness.  The thing we have to understand is that everything that we physically see did not just come into existence.  It manifested itself out of the invisible spiritual reality.  Therefore, we truly “conscious” people believe that the invisible spiritual reality is stronger than the physical reality and this is why we believe we can change our physical environment.  If you do not understand this or know this, you are not being spiritual.

The whole idea of being spiritual is that we know that everything that physically exists is temporary and an illusion. This is why my ancestors told me that the physical realm is TASETT – the Red Lands which is a symbol of a desert because deserts have all sorts of mirages of oasis.  This means regardless of where you were born, what you have done, who your parents are, what side of the town you come from, etc. none of this defines who you are.  ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE.

Let me give you an example of what I mean. Some of you have heard my testimony but I have to tell you so that you understand the gravity of the situation. Several years ago, my body was diagnosed with lupus. I remember when the specialist told me that it was lupus, the only thing I could think of was how my fellow Detroiter, J-Dilla, passed away from lupus complications. When I did some research on the ill-ness, I noticed that some people after being diagnosed had all sorts of complications, while others drove this ill-ness into complete remission. This made me think about my Mom and how she overcame cancer. When I asked my Mom how she beat the cancer, she told me that she basically had a talk with God and said that she had too much going on to leave. She said, “I told God, I need you to take this away” and shortly after it was gone.

What my mother did was tap into the spiritual realm and changed her physical reality, which is the same exact thing I did to improve my physical health. I did not rely upon what the doctors told me. I fixed in my mind what I wanted and made it a physical reality. Before this incident, I used to talk being spiritual but after I underwent my experience, I understood and became spiritual. You see, I had to learn the hard way that being consciousness is not about how many books you have read or how many books you got in your library.  But, when the sh*t hits the fan, none of this really matters. I know that our Ancestors are real because I talked to mine and this is how I know it is all about your MIND, which is the Creator’s greatest invention.

The funny thing is that I always have people ask if it was hard? My answer to them is yes, but they are surprised when I tell them that the hardest part was battling my lower self. You see, there were all sorts of negative and depressing ideas and thoughts that were trying to discourage my healing. I cannot even begin to tell you about all of the doubting thoughts that came to my mind and worse yet, the doubting and negative thoughts and energies that came from other people. Some of these negative energies were intentional but most were unintentional negative vibes that did not want me to recover. It was a serious battle but I managed to look pass the illusions and this is how I began to perceive the spiritual reality.  As I mentally fought these negative thoughts and energies, that is when I discovered that there is a spiritual realm for myself. Then, through my ancestors I discovered the Maa Aankh and learned that the physical realm corresponds to the subconscious part of our being, hence TASETT.

Maa Aankh

The purpose of our lower self or subconscious is to help us to physically survive by recording our personal experience in our memories. It is because of our lower self or subconscious, we do not put our hands into a fire because it reminds us that if we do we will burn ourselves. But, when the subconscious gets stuck with an idea or thought and refuses to change, that is when things become disastrous. For instance, imagine being afraid of fire after touching it.  As you could imagine, you would never cook your food, warm your house, warm yourself, etc. because of your fear that fire burns.

This perspective is totally dangerous because just like the physical realm, our subconscious is lopsided and does not see the complete view of the whole.  Our subconscious only can give us limited ideas from our personal experiences.  In other words, if you have never personally experienced something then you cannot comment on it.  We got a lot of people claiming they are spiritual gurus but all they have done is read a bunch of books.  A lot of these people do not even know what cosmologics is because if they did, they would not be worried about what the president does and giving into all of their fears. If you claim that the Supreme Being is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent then, you should know that we’re going to be Alright! All we have to do is seek a solution to our problems from within.  In other words, if an individual is truly about being spiritual, it will reflect in their life.  For the record, I have had my share of following fakes, which is why I am trying to get us to stop giving our power away and expecting people to save us.  Instead focus on saving our self!

This is the reason our Nilotic ancestors called it Set, which was later modified to Set-an and finally Satan.  Today, most of the world population is controlled by Set who gives us a lopsided view about family, relationships, money, health, education, government, religion, etc.  This is the reason there are so many contradictions that can be found in our health system. It is this same lopsided view, which is the reason all of these medications have adverse reactions and side effects. Relationship problems, such as high divorce rates and the attack on the nuclear family, are all due to this lopsided view given to us by Set, who is none other than our Ego.

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

Does it make sense why all of the violence we see occurring across the country in the school, public spaces, on the Internet, etc. are the ego amped up on 10. I mean have you ever seen so many people just go plum crazy and going berserk over the stupidest things? Have you ever seen so many people full of anger, rage, envy, etc.? It is all because we are all focused on one perspective or seeing the world from this lopsided view. We see only one side of the picture, which is the reason this realm is called TASETT – the Red Lands.  In the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris), this is metaphorized as Hru (Heru, Horus) battling Set and the conflict consistently ending in a stalemate because Hru’s eye was damaged.

So, we’re all living in the last days because we are controlled by our Ego, lower self or Set.  We will never find true peace, true prosperity, true happiness, etc. because no one in this lifetime has ever experienced it and since no one has any personal memories on how to get it. It is a pipe dream.  This is the reason most religious people thrive on devastation and will tell you that we are doomed.  But understand, this is only because these people are affected by Set too and can only see one of the whole picture as well.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The truth is that we are not in the last days  and here’s where being conscious and spiritual comes into play. We all have a Higher Self and this part of our being is connected to the spiritual realm. Remember, the spiritual is more powerful than the physical, well within our being our Higher Self is more powerful than our lower self. In other words, our Higher Self, which the Kemetic ancestors called Osar trumps Set, but Osar cannot do it alone.

You must consciously and willingly call upon your Higher Self or Osar and when you do your Osar will intervene. This can be accomplished through divination, meditation and rituals. When you perform divination, meditation and rituals, you get to see the other side of reality. You see that things do not just happen. Accidents don’t just occur. Life is not full coincidences. These are all silly things that people say because they have a lopsided view influenced by Set.  If you saw the whole picture, the whole scheme of things, you will know that our world is governed by Cause and Effects. Whenever we see something “suddenly” happen, we are only seeing the Effect and not the Cause.

Divination, meditation and rituals can help you navigate through life. There is no need for Black Lives Matter or to protest when you see the whole picture because when you  inject your Osar into the situation, you can hit the enemy where it hurts. But, as long as we continue to use this lopsided view to solve a lopsided problem, we will continue to get these same half-ass results, like Hru did when he fought Set.

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

5 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Maa Aankh with Utchat

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

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

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

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