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.

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

1 07 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Establishing Your Personal Maa

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

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

1) Choose a Legend

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

28 06 2019
Image from the Kamta Primer

I will never forget when I started erecting sacred spaces to work with the deities, there was a Christian relative of mine who caught a glimpse of my altars.  In his barrage of opinionated attack of why I should not be worshipping gods and instead should turn my life over to Jesus. He remarked, “Why do you have so many gods anyway?”

At the time, I was relatively new to the path so I did not know how to respond until one day I learned about archetypes.  Now, I had heard the term used by people for years but I never knew what they were. When I finally began reading about them, the first book I picked up on the subject was Carolyn Myss’ Sacred Contract. In this book, I found that the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychology Carl Jung was the individual who created the term ‘archetype,’ which he saw as fundamental units of the mind.  But thousands of years before him the Greek philosopher Plato called them forms.  Plato explained that forms were idealistic templates that existed in the non-physical world, which includes roundness, softness, blackness, etc.

What Plato and later Jung was stating was there are forms, archetypes or ideal templates that exist all around us.  That is an ideal model of how everything within the physical world functions.  For instance, plants do not grow all over the planet. Plants need water, air and a certain type of soil to grow and develop. This is the template that all plants must follow, then to get more specific. Certain plants require a little bit more or less of these ingredients to produce a specific type of plant, fruit, etc.

So, according to Jung there are numerous forms or archetypes that exist and some of the most popular ones are:

When non-western cultures around the world such as the Kemetic people observed that everything in the physical world is following a specific template. They stated that there is an intelligence governing that particular physical thing, which the ancient Kemetic sages called netcharu (netjeru, netcheru, etc.) and western archeologists, as well as theologians, have tried to demonize by calling them, gods and goddesses.  These intelligences are simply the same forms or archetypes which Plato and Jung identified.

Why did Westerners make a  distinction?

Well, when Christianity swept through the Western civilization, thus making people depended more upon logical, rational and scientific thought.  To avoid persecution and distinguish themselves from pagans, western philosophers dropped the term gods and goddesses because they believed that these entities existed outside of them, and just associated all the positive attributes with the archetype whom they called God, and the negative with the devil.

What the Westerners did not understand was that the so-called gods and goddesses or forms and archetypes are a part of us as well because we are also a product of the physical realm.  In other words, archetypes are the invisible forces behind human behavior.

For this reason, many non-western cultures continued to view the archetypes or forms as gods and goddesses for two reasons.  First, they maintained this tradition because they knew that these intelligences existed outside of them but also within them particularly their unconscious. For instance, the same nurturing nature that exists in mothers can be found in female cows, female birds, and everything in nature, which is why the Kemetic sages called this intelligence Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis), the Divine Mother of Everything. Second, they continued to maintain the tradition of referring to these intelligences as gods and goddesses because they knew that if you could observe how this intelligent was functioning in your life. If the behavior is unacceptable, you can easily separate yourself from the god/goddess and correct it.

Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) with Child Hru (Horus) (L) and the Virgin Mary with Child (R)

It should be noted that failure to understand the psychology behind the nature of archetypes is the reason Christianity was able to mimic the Kemetic thought by transforming Oset to the Virgin Mary. But, unable to spiritually transform adherents as evidenced by the growing number of sexual abuse cases plaguing the church.

So what is it that archetypes do and why are they so important?

Archetypes basically influence our behavior because they are from a psychological perspective, software programs for our psyche.  We are all influenced by archetypes rather we choose to believe in them or not. For instance, if you want to have a romantic evening what do most of us do? We put on soft, seductive music. Light incense and/or soft colored candles.  Have a romantic dinner, etc. because we want to set the mood. Who told us to do this? Most of us are not sure but we do it because we are being influenced by the archetype of Love & Passion.  In Western mythology, this would be Venus. In Kemetic mythology, it would be Bes.  

Your archetype is basically what triggers your emotional response to behave bravely, courageous, protectively, cowardly, etc. Identifying who you archetypes are will give your life a lot of meaning. Understand, that when I say your archetype I am speaking of the main archetypes that play a major role in your life. These are the personalities that you identify as yourself.

Why are so many people afraid of this?

As stated earlier, a lot of people in west did not want to be stigmatized and persecuted as being a pagan because “to go against the Church, is to go against God.”  Later, when the German psychologists Sigmund Freud emerged and proposed his theories about the unconscious mind and its’ unfulfilled desires.  Thereby suggesting that most people were crazy or psychotic, which is the reason Freud termed his field of study psychoanalysis.  Freud’s theories further cemented peoples’ fears about the mind and the Christian idea of the devil being associated with this part of our mind.  So, when we hear voices in our head, it was concluded based upon Freud’s theories that we were crazy or from a religious perspective hearing the devil. This is the reason when we see people talking to themselves we automatically assume that they are mentally unstable.

Although Jung was mentored by Freud, he took a different approach from his older colleague by observing his patients and studying the various mythologies from around the world.  This humble approach led Jung to see familiar psychological patterns among his patients and himself.  These patterns are what Jung termed as archetypes and led him to conclude that everyone (including himself) had a fragmented consciousness. In other words, what Jung theorized was that while we may think of our mind as being a single unit or I.  According to Jung, our mind is plural and consists of a pantheon of archetypes.

Therefore, when we hear voices in our head it is important to know that it is one of our archetypes speaking so that we can weaved it together to make our psyche whole.

Now, there are numerous ways this can be accomplished and one very effective method inspired by the Kemetic pantheon centers around the Higher Self.

Coming Soon! In “Why Are There So Many Gods and Goddesses in Traditional African Religions (Part II)”, we will go over some ways of working with our archetypes. 





How to Return to Our Divine Mind

9 06 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know I remember one summer my brother and I decided to rent a vehicle so that we could drive from Kansas back to Detroit, for our family reunion that weekend.  While in Detroit, we had a good time seeing family members but since we both had to be back at work Monday morning. We had planned to leave early Sunday morning and take a different route to avoid the heavy traffic in Kansas City.

Now, I drove the first leg, which was from Detroit all the way to St. Louis and my brother was going to drive the rest of the way. But, when we got to St. Louis,  passed the arch, crossed the bridge to the other side and pulled over so that my brother could drive. About five minutes after he got in the driver seat and started driving, he stated that he was having shortness of breath.

Image result for st louis arch

So we pull over and I can see he is really having trouble breathing.  Since it was Sunday morning and we were on the road, we did not know where the nearest hospital was but we found a medical clinic that was open.  After we go inside and he is seen by the on-call physician, an hour or two later he comes out and tells me that the doctor said that he had a panic attack. The doctor gave him a prescription for anxiety and we went to the nearest pharmacy to have it fulfilled.

Three hours later from the time we got off the road to now, he takes the medication. About 15 minutes later, I asked him if he was okay to drive and he told me that he would try but when he got back into the driver’s seat. He began having shortness of breath again, so I told him that I would drive.  As soon as I got back into the driver’s seat, my brother fell asleep while I drove the rest of way back to our home.

Now, not to be insensitive but at the time I was really upset with my brother because I had to drive 22 hours straight, which was something I had never done.  I was stressed, tired and I had been looking forward to resting while he drove the final leg.  Not to mention I was taking a different route from the route I previously drove to Detroit.  I didn’t know what triggered his panic attack but I imagined that he was overwhelmed by everything. It was a different route, heavy traffic, we were both rushed to get back to work and stress. I knew that what it was because I was feeling it too but, what helped me to cope thankfully was my spiritual education.

The traditional Western approach to dealing with any new situation is to treat symptoms and not the core problem because the body and mind according to western science are separate. Consequently, in the West, we are taught to identify with our bodies. If something hurts then, we say, “I am in pain.” If there is a problem, then we are taught to say, “I have a problem” and so on, because we are taught to identify with our physical being as being us.

In non-Western and Eastern thinking, the focus is on the whole being from a philosophical perspective. For instance, I was able to cope with my feelings of panic and stress differently because in the Kemetic tradition, I learned that we are not our bodies.  Our physical body is our vehicle so, when we are in pain, such as having a headache then it is “My head hurts” and not “I have a headache.” For newcomers, this may sound a little confusing but think about if you have a car and a flat tire. Do you have a flat tire or does your car have a flat tire?

This difference in perspective determines if we choose to see the world as a god/goddess or as a mere mortal being. As such, this difference also determines if we choose to access our Higher Mind or our lower mind.

When we choose to follow the lower mind perspective by identifying with our body, then we use the traditional Western approach, which simply relies on labeling the problem with an obscure name and prescribing drugs to cope.  In my brother’s case, it was labeled that he had a “panic attack” and after the doctor poked around he was given a prescription.

Now before I continue, let me put this disclaimer out there by stating that for the record, this is not a post justifying if anxiety is real or not and please do not use this post as a means of self-diagnosing. Also, this is not by any means written to indicate that I was better than my brother or that spiritually educated people are better, and so on.   The point of this post is to highlight the difference in problem-solving.

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

I dealt with this rush of stressful emotions that overwhelmed me differently because, in the Kemetic tradition, everything that we physically see is a mirror reflection of a spiritual event (for lack of a better word). All physical occurrences are simply the effects of an invisible spiritual cause, which can be understood metaphorically. This means every physical occurrence has a (spiritual) story and when I use the Story of Osar as a metaphorical guide. Every problem is attributed to Set.

Since there are only two main emotions in our Universe and they are: Love and Fear.  Love is the driving emotion that propels our Higher Self personified as Osar to function, which is the reason Osar is all about unity, knowledge, wisdom, peace, etc.  Fear is the emotion that drives our lower self, which is personified as Set who is selfish because he fears that’s not enough resources, he’s violent because he fears the unknown and so on.

So, the reason I was able to cope better when I was in the stressful situation was because I was able to recognize and acknowledge that my fear was real or metaphorically speaking I recognized Set’s presence. However, I refused to allow this energy to control me by basically telling my lower self or Set that “Yes, this is a different route and it is overwhelming but everything is going to be okay. Relax.”

The only reason I was able to talk to my lower self or Set was because I understood that this energy was not the devil or some other outside entity working hard to prevent my brother and I from getting to our destination safely, so we could both be at work on time. It was a lower energy occurring within me (or both of us).  Set appeared to me at that time to inform me to be cautious, pay attention to the other drivers, don’t get distracted, and relax. After I had this affirmative self-talk with my self, I was able to shift my awareness to my Higher Self or Osar and proceed to my destination safely.

We all have a higher mind or Superconscious or Divine Mind personified as Osar and the way to communicate with it so that it trumps our subconscious or Set is in extraordinary ways such as self-talk, ritual, magick, etc.  Most people do not know how to distinguish between the two and simply follow their Set because it is normal in the sense that most people give in to their lower selves but, we do not have to follow this path. We can choose to return to our Divine Nature whenever we want to.

Over the years, I have reflected back to this experience and thought about how if I had not learned how to shift my awareness. If I were to follow the Setian path, I would have become anxious, worrisome, fearful, etc. and I might have thrust myself into a panic attack or worse.  Thankfully, I learned a different way of handling stressful events and because of this experience (and similar ones) I know that: 1) in the west this type of thinking is called spirituality whereas in non-western cultures it is simply viewed as a cultural way of life, and.  2) This is confirmation that western thinking is great for mathematics and technological wonders, but fails miserably in regards to life matters such as healing and relationships.

In closing, if you are in a pinch, consider changing your perspective and approaching the matter from a divine perspective. Get to know your Osar and all of the benevolent spirits associated with your Osar. Stop settling for Set just because it is the “normal way” people do things. In other words, remember that if you are a god/goddess then you should “stop sweating the small stuff” in order to access your Divine Mind.

What They Don’t Want You to Know About Your Alchemy (Al-Kem-me)

8 06 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

A long time ago there was a very powerful discipline that was understood and only practiced by the higher classes of society. This discipline was called alchemy, which is the “art of transformation.” Generally speaking, when one mentions the term alchemy it conjures up images of old Merlin-type men stuck in an old dusty laboratory, fanatically obsessing over transforming the lead metal to gold.  The reason this imagery comes to mind when we mention the word alchemy is that during the European Middle Ages.  There was a class of alchemist known as practical alchemists or puffers, who were fascinated with changing lead to gold.  But, the idea of transforming lead to gold is an allusion referring to changing the lower nature of a thing to it’s a higher form. For instance, there are several kinds of alchemy such as spiritual alchemy the goal is to transform the heavy lead of the soul into a bright and pure spirit of gold.  Social Alchemy focuses on transforming the fearful, sinful, disease-ridden, war driven and depraved nature of society (lead) into a courageous, righteous, healthy, peaceful society (gold).  Therapeutic alchemy uses practices such as yoga, trance dancing, tai chi, acupuncture, reiki, tantra, dream therapy, herbology, reflexology, etc. to stimulate healing energy within the body, and so on.

Although there are no historical documents that have been recovered stating who the individual(s) is that first discovered alchemy.  Historical documents reveal that alchemy was first practiced in Kemet (Ancient Egypt) and legends state that the first alchemist was the god Djahuti (Thoth).

Related imageDjahuti was revered in Kemet because he was the first scribe, the inventor of language and writing.  For this reason, he is considered to be the creator of everything that was written down such as mathematics, music, magic, science, medicine, culture and alchemy.

It is believed that alchemy was practiced in Kemet for at least 5,000 years and that Djahuti had written over 300 books (or scrolls) that were preserved inside two great pillars but during a great flood the pillars were lost.  Thousands of years later, the pillars were recovered by the existing priesthood who opened the pillar and found numerous precious texts and artifacts such as the Emerald Tablet.  To preserve the writings and ensure that they would not be misused, the priesthood hid the writings and disseminated the Djahuti wisdom into the Kemetic society.

The Pert em Hru (the so-called Egyptian Book of the Dead and the oldest spiritual book in the history of the world) and The Book of Breathing which details how human beings can become gods and goddesses through controlling their breath, are all believed to be fragmented pieces of wisdom from these great pillars but, when the Greek invader Alexander conquered Kemet in 322 BC.  Later, Alexander made the ancient writings publicly accessible and built a library so that the writings of Djahuti could be studied.  This library became known as the Library of Alexandria (288 B.C.).

The Alexandrian library was said to be so large that it housed over 100 fulltime scribes who wrote, lectured, copied, translated and performed research. One of the scribes who was allowed to translate the writings was named Manetho who wrote that the writings contained the sum of all knowledge.  But, Manetho along with all of the other writings ascribed to Djahuti was lost in 48 B.C. when the library of Alexandria burned down.

Since that time, numerous schools of alchemy have risen and fell because some legends claim that Djahuti was a survivor from the lost city of Atlantis who learned how to extend his life. However, according to some historians, Djahuti was an ancient Kemetic priest who lived around the time of the biblical Moses.  The Greeks called Djahuti Hermes and in Latin, he was called Hermes Trismegistus, which means “thrice-greatest Hermes” referring to his mastery of the physical, mental and spiritual realms.  Records indicate that there are 13 books attributed to Hermes Trismegistus and these esoteric teachings are the basis of the philosophy known as Hermeticism.

The Arabs who were familiar with the legend of Djahuti and Hermes called him Hirmis and Idris.  According to their Arabian legend, Hirmis taught in Babylon after being exiled from Kemet, who is believed to have written 15 books.  This eventually led to an exchanging of ideas that gave rise to the Zohar and the Jewish Kabbalah.

In China, a Djahuti or Hermes-like sage emerged named Lao Tzu who is known as the founder of Taoism.  According to numerous reports, Lao Tzu lived to be around 200 years old with over 1,500 texts attributed to him, which focused on transforming the life force called Chi.  While, Indian alchemists had a similar alchemy system that focused on transforming the lifeforce, which they called kundalini.

It is a known fact that the Kemetic priesthood and craftsmen were masters of alchemic practices. For instance, the Kemetians had mastered how to extract essential oils from plants, ferment fruits and malts to make beverages, produce gold and copper with a high percentage of purity, design irrigation systems, build simple machines, make advances in engineering, medicine, and architecture, while being a so-called “primitive” society. Basically, the Kemetic civilization was able to become an advanced society in a relatively short time because of alchemy.  However, the problem is that ever since the destruction of the Alexandrian library in 48 BC, humanity has suffered a great loss because the wisdom of Djahuti has ceased being filtered to society. This is the reason the Kemetic priesthood concealed the teachings from the public in the first place.

So the reason Kemet is so important to our spiritual development is that within the study of the Kemetic philosophy and Kemetic religion lies the basis of the alchemic teachings of Djahuti. Djahuti’s name which means “Lord of Rebirth” and “Revealer of the Hidden” directs one’s attention to Amun (the Hidden One) and Kam Ta or KAMTA (the Land of Kam).

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Kam, Kham, Kem or Khem are all references to the black fertile soil due to the inundation of the Nile River and are all root terms of the words chemistry (practical alchemy that focuses on laboratory experiments) and alchemy.  The Arabs called alchemy Al-Khemia because to them it was a mysterious dark art of the Kemetic people, but what should be noted is that all of the traditional African societies and their alchemic practices are ignored and not even included in the discussion.  To put it bluntly, traditional Africans have always been interested in some form of alchemy or transformation because it is the basis of traditional African culture. For instance, in the West, we call self-development spirituality but in traditional African societies, spiritual development is simply called a cultural way of life.  So, the reason is that Kemetic alchemy or the “dark arts” similar to traditional African arts rests on the shoulders of the ancestors.  This is the reason ancestor veneration has become such a popular subject in the last decade.

So, while we are being discouraged from engaging in our ancestral practice, others are actively trying to master this art so that they can further suppress us. This dark art is the power of the dead and their ability to go anywhere and anytime because they are not restricted by time and space. This means that the dead have the ability to guide and teach us lessons that would normally take us several lifetimes to achieve. Kemet stands as a testament that anything is humanly possible and most importantly that the human soul is immortal. Kemet is important to our spiritual development because it has the ability to transform our consciousness. There are numerous ways you can tap into Djahuti’s wisdom so ask your ancestors and guides as to how to do so. Don’t be ashamed of your ancestral culture because others do not understand it. The reason it survives is that it was founded by Djahuti and is a testament that all you need to do is go within.

When the Student is Ready, A Spirit (Not a Teacher) Will Appear

2 06 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Many of us have heard that the saying that “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” but I have found this not to be the case. First, the reason many of us believe that a teacher will appear when we are “ready” is because we live in a society that: 1) discourages spiritual education and, 2) focuses entirely on the physical sciences.  What I mean by discourages spiritual education and focuses on physical science is that once we enter the western education system as children.  We are discouraged from communicating with our ancestors and spirits, by fearing what we cannot physically assess with our five physical senses.  We are taught to think logically and to only entertain abstract and illogical thought in a religious setting.

So many of us (myself included) go all over the world (it seems) looking for a teacher and pledging our lives to individuals whom we think will teach us.  It is only after we have experienced some hardships due to us idolizing spiritual teachers that it becomes apparent. That our universe is composed of a spiritual and physical reality, which means everything that we physically see came into existence from spiritual reality. Therefore, the only reason why a teacher will appear “when the student is ready” is because the student ignored all of the spiritual signs that came in the beginning.

Most of us living in the West miss these signs because we live a society where Christianity is the major religion of influence.  Therefore, when something unplanned happens to us we are taught and trained to label it as a bad experience and blame it on the devil based upon our lower mind perspective.

What do I mean when I say a lower mind perspective?

Well, our mind is composed of three parts and they are the Superconscious, Conscious and subconscious mind. The Superconscious is responsible for governing all of the intuitive aspects of our mind, while the subconscious is responsible for governing all of our personal memories, emotions and the mental faculties needed to physically survive. The Conscious mind is simply the part of our being commonly called our soul, which is used to decide the part of our mind (Superconscious or subconscious) that is going to dominate our life.

Image result for subconscious conscious superconscious

For this reason, the Superconscious is personified as our Osar and symbolized as KAMTA on the Maa Aankh, and the subconscious is personified as Set and symbolized as TASETT.  While, the Conscious is symbolized as Hru (Horus), but the evolution of our consciousness is symbolized as the four solar discs surrounding the Maa Aankh.

Our Kemetic ancestors chose to symbolize the Superconscious as the dark fertile lands of the southern region of Kemet to remind us that like fertile soil.  The Superconscious yields unlimited potential and possibilities.  It gives us a more holistic perspective that allows us to see into the future.  Hence the reason, Osar is able to teach his people spiritual laws, introduce new sciences and lay the foundations for building a prosperous civilization.  All conflicts are resolved in a peaceful manner because everyone is seen as being part of the collective or a member of the same family. Therefore, what affects one individual will eventually have a domino effect and affect everyone.

The arid and red desert of the northern region was chosen to symbolize the subconscious to remind us that because the subconscious is responsible for governing all of our personal memories and emotions to help us to physically survive.  It gives us a very narrow, limited and selfish perspective about life.  As illustrated in the legend, after Set usurps the throne, he leads to civilization on a spiraling path to its demise because he offers no new solutions to the problems we face. All conflicts are resolved from a selfish perspective which creates more conflict that results in violent outcomes.

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

Let me give you a real-life example of a Setian perspective. I remember the first time I began to see these two perspectives was years ago when I was a kid in high school. In the mid-1980s when crack cocaine hit the streets of Detroit. People all over the city were dying due to their addiction to the drug, while kids all over the city were dying due to the rising homicide violence related to the drug. All of the high schools and eventually elementary schools installed metal detectors.  There were kids being shot and killed at school all over the city. I will never forget that as the city plunged to its demise, there was a summit held to discuss the issues with other officials in the metropolitan area.  When asked what could be done and if other communities could assist. There were officials outside of the City of Detroit in the more affluent neighborhoods that refused to help because they categorized the problem as an “urban problem.”  The only advice that was offered was Nancy Reagan’s slogan “Just Say No to Drugs!” while the Regan administration said, “Yes to Mass Incarceration.”

Image result for nancy reagan say no to drugs

This was the first time I  officially saw racism and classism at work because it did not take a genius to know that “urban problem” was code for a “Black problem.” My suspicions were confirmed when the U.S. government passed draconian laws imprisoning all people of color for possession of crack cocaine regardless if they were addicted or had plans to distribute, whereas individuals carrying a larger quantity of powder cocaine received less severe punishments and sentencing. Later when I got older and learned about Kemetic thinking, that is when I realized that this selfish perspective was classic Setian thinking because today’s “urban problem” exists all over the country and now, the more affluent people are suffering from opioid addictions as well.

The more Osarian approach to the problem would have been to recognize that people of all ethnicities use illicit drugs as a form of escape because they do not know how to cope with situations from a more sensible manner. America’s drug problems are not an “urban” problem, a Black or Brown problem but a “societal” problem affecting everyone within the country.  It is a continually growing problem because there are no spiritual institutions in place that help people to cope with these matters.

I remember watching a documentary that showed that when Canadian officials accepted that their country had a substance abuse problem.  They combatted the problem by focusing on educating people on how to cope with stressful matters using alternative treatment techniques like meditation and treatment. So that their citizens would not quickly turn to illicit drugs as an escape. As a result, the number of drug-related crimes decreased across the country. Please note that the Canadian government did not implement a perfect program because there is no one solution that is going to solve every problem. However, it should be noted that years before the U.S., they implemented a program to help ALL (not just a specific group) affected by illicit drugs versus imprisoning them.  The Canadian government simply took an “us” instead of a “them” approach to dealing with the problem.

To put it bluntly, If the U.S. had seen the crack cocaine epidemic as an issue that affected all American citizens instead of seeing it as a Black and Brown thing, the substance abuse problem it faces may not be as grand as it is today. This same selfish perspective can be seen in other US policies as well. For instance, if the U.S. had seen the erupting violence occurring in urban schools as an issue that would eventually affect the entire public school systems.  The number of school shootings we witness today would not be so common.

The thing about the Setian perspective is that it spiritually represents a childish mind state. This is the reason Set is said to be according to legend the youngest of the Kemetic divinities. Set’s youthfulness is also an allusion referring to the limited perspective that many youths live their lives from as they focus solely on the physical. For instance, those living from a Setian perspective will believe that when unplanned events occur. They are accidents, coincidences, etc. that just happens. Only individuals who have developed their consciousness to understand that we live in a cause and effect universe, know that nothing just happens. In other words, every time we have an unpleasant experience, it does not necessarily mean that it is bad. It only appears that way because our spiritual immaturity does not allow us to see the whole picture. To illustrate this, when the S*** hits the fan, we only see the physical things that occur in TASETT, which is symbolized as the Right Eye of Ra. To pass to the next stage of our development, we have to spiritually die, which is symbolized as the setting Ra Atum sun.

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

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

So the question is what do you do when you are in this situation?

Generally speaking, simply relax and don’t fight it. The more you fight, the harder the experience will be because this is Maat’s way of restoring balance in your life. This is the reason (if you have not figured it out yet), that every time you become anxious the conditions around you become tenser. When you are rushing, that’s when things get in your way to slow you down. When you expect something to go wrong, that’s when things go wrong. These are all examples of Set manifesting himself in your life, which Maat supports because she is trying to connect you with your Osar who rests at the Amun Ra moment.

Why do we undergo this negative experience in the first place?

It is because during our lifetime while dwelling in TASETT you have acquired an impurity within your soul. This usually occurred somewhere between the Khepera and Ra moment.  The impure belief caused numerous problems in your life and manifested itself fully during the Ra and Ra Atum moment. When you surrender to your Higher Self and let it all go, it is when you meet your Osar and you are able to resolve your problem.

This means that the purpose of this experience is to purge the negative aspect out of you so that you can be receptive to the Spirit who is willing to teach you about you. which is symbolized as the Left Eye of Ra.

The Left Eye of Ra , which is associated with the Amun Ra moment on the Maa Aankh. It is also known as the Lunar Eye and corresponds to abstract and spiritual insight.

So, if you are going through a rough patch, it might be time for you to sit down, be quiet and listen to your Spirits to defeat your Set.

If Your Life Sucks It is Probably Because You Forgot You Are a God/Goddess Pt. 1

20 05 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

I have been toying around with this post for a few weeks now because I was not sure how to deliver it, but the time has come to just put it out there and just say what needs to be said. So here it is…

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Our universe is composed of two realities and they are the invisible, spiritual realm and a visible, physical realm. As I have mentioned before, our Nilotic ancestors in Kemet and Kush loved to use metaphors and puns.  So, although they called the northernmost region Ta Sett – the Red Lands because of the soil was red and arid.  And, they called the southernmost region Kam Ta (KMT) – the Black Lands because the soil was black, rich and fertile. These terms are also metaphysical codes referring to the characteristics of the physical and spiritual realms.

TASETT is not just an arid land. It symbolizes the physical realm and all of its limitations. The ancient Bantu priests in Kemet chose the desert as a symbol to describe the physical realm, to remind us. That because a desert has a limited supply of water all living beings in the physical realm are in constant competition with one another. Simply put, it is about the survival of the fittest in the physical realm because it appears that there are limited resources. The limited resources in the physical realm combined with the competition to survive also convinces people that the only way to succeed in through direct action and aggression. This is the reason TASETT (the Red Lands and the physical realm) is chaotic and ruled by Set – the Lord of Confusion.

Therefore, when an individual is grounded or polarized solely in their thinking that there is only one reality and that is the physical realm.  This individual is totally controlled by their lower self or subconscious part of their being, which focuses solely on physical survival and lacks higher reasoning.  This individual is like an irate customer searching for goods that have already been sold.  When news is announced that there are only one of these goods available, they result in struggling and fighting other customers as if it were Black Friday, hence no higher reasoning.

KAMTA is not just the name for the black fertile land in the southern region of ancient Kemet. The term was not only chosen by the Kemetic people to describe the Kemetians dark complexion. It was used to remind people about the mysterious and unlimited nature of the spiritual realm. Where TASETT is limited, KAMTA is abundant. Where TASETT is actual, KAMTA is imaginary.  Survival in TASETT depends upon direct actions, physical competition, and aggression. Well, in KAMTA survival depends upon cooperation and spiritual development.

Therefore, when an individual understands the nature of this metaphysical reality called KAMTA. They know that when our thoughts are held in our conscious awareness over a period of time, they manifest our physical reality. The individual who understands the abundant nature of the spiritual realm knows that if they declare what they want. The universe will deliver their request, which is the reason KAMTA is ruled by Osar who symbolizes higher reasoning skills.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

What this means is that if you are having a lot of problems in your life, symbolized on the Maa Aankh (above) as the Ra/Midday Sun descending to Ra Atum/Sunset.  It is because you forgot you are a God or Goddess who can create his or her own reality. If you believe that our Perfect Creator is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, then you should be pleased to know that unlike the biblical deity, the Divine does not make mistakes. Everything that happens follows a Divine Plan, which means that all of your problems are stepping stones to help you to reclaim your GOD CONSCIOUSNESS back at Amun Ra moment.
