If African Spirituality Was So Powerful, Why Were They Enslaved and Conquered?

If you are new to African spirituality or an old head, you will eventually come face to face with this elephant that not many people would like to discuss and it is. “If African spirituality was so powerful, then why were the Africans enslaved and conquered?”

Another question related to this is “Why was the African continent invaded and numerous countries conquered by less spiritually powerful invaders?”

Well, I believe it was because of three reasons and I look forward to hearing your comments on if you agree or disagree. Before I give my reasons I let me say that I have been on this path off and on for a while. For the record, this does not give authority or more credence than others. I am simply putting it out there for those who need to know that I have been around the spiritual block several times.

So, if African spirituality was so powerful, why were they enslaved and conquered? Well, as I mentioned, I have three reasons why.

First, I don’t think that African spirituality was that powerful and for that matter. I don’t think there is one spiritual system that is all-powerful. One of the greatest myths that many people have when they start dabbling and getting into spiritual culture is that they believe. That when they become spiritual they will be all-powerful. They will be able to walk on water. Float above the ground while meditating. Talk to clouds and make it rain for a specific period because “we are gods and goddesses.”

This myth is so powerful that it makes us look at spiritual traditions as if they are storefronts at a mall. So we choose to follow one spiritual tradition because it promises to make us wealthy, or we leave one tradition because they did not fulfill their promise based upon what we believed to make us healthy, powerful, or whatever instant gratification goal we desire.

The facts are that all spiritual systems are essentially the same. If you don’t see this it probably because you are still suffering from the religious dogma that programmed you to believe that only Baptists are going to heaven, or Jehovah witnesses are right, etc. So, let me say it again, all spiritual traditions are essentially the same. The major difference between all spiritual traditions is the culture and language that hosts the tradition.

No spiritual tradition is perfect, which is why historically you can find flaws in every cultural society that hosted them. For instance, with all of the wisdom that has flowed out of China due to Taoism and Kung Fu Tze (Confucius) you would think China would be a spiritually enlightened mecca but China oppresses her citizens, women are very suppressed, the labor laws are horrific and their environment is a cesspool. So much for an enlightened China or not? So, the first reason the Africans were enslaved and conquered despite having a powerful spiritual system is that people have to implement it.

This brings me to the second point but forces me to ask this question before giving my response. The question is with all of this great and powerful wisdom that has come out of China in the past 30 to 50 years, why does China have the problems she has? The answer is because people still have free will to do whatever they want. As a matter of fact, when China was undergoing its cultural revolution and being influenced by Westerners. Most of China’s wisdom and spiritual traditions were seen as superstitious nonsense. In fact, most of the Chinese spiritual practices and traditions that we appreciate in the West such as feng shui, qi gong, I Ching, etc. are considered folk practices in China. Need proof? Watch the Ip Man series on Netflix, which reveals that one of the reasons he became a legend is because he was trying to preserve the Chinese culture amid Western influence (Regardless of how factual the story is it is a familiar theme). Now, does that sound familiar? Understand, that the only reason most of these practices are tolerated is that so many people practice it. By the way, Cuba went through a similar transition but now the African religions that have survived are celebrated as a part of Cuban culture. Again, people who do not understand this will try to create a schism between the two.

Now, I say all of this to say that this is what Africa suffered from when the Arabs and Europeans were welcomed to their lands. It is a classic case of being enamored by another culture to the point that you view your own culture as inferior. When the Portuguese arrived on the shores of the Kongo Kingdom, the Kongo rulers experienced a technology gap where they were so fascinated by the Europeans arsenal and culture that they willingly converted to Christianity.

Let me say it again because there’s this myth that all Africans were forced into slavery. Many of the Kongo people willingly converted to Christianity because it was not the same trick bag that was used over in the States to justify slavery. So, reason number 2 as to why the Africans were enslaved if their spiritual systems are so powerful is that they started seeing other peoples’ spiritual systems as superior and their own as inferior.

Lastly, the final reason they were enslaved and conquered is that they had become too spiritual. When an individual is too spiritual they are no worldly good because they are focused on idealism and they ignore the physical reality or commonsense. This is because you are always looking at the best of an individual. For instance, the Divine exists in everyone and everything including rattlesnakes but would you pick up a rattlesnake without training? Would you let a stranger off the street sleep in your home? If you are too spiritual you would and you are opening yourself up for a great spiritual lesson but, if you got commonsense you better not. This is where people get ideas about Maa wrong and Maat says that if you have the means share. That means if someone asks for $10 and you can share it without missing it, by all means, share it. If it comes back great and it proves that the individual you shared it with is trustworthy but if not you will not miss it, no loss. This whole idea of giving your last dime because God is going to bless you is a warped western religious belief.

Being too spiritual is a sin like being materialistic. If you have read the Story of Osar, the reason Osar was murdered by his youngest brother is that he was too spiritual. For those interested in Kemetic history, the reason Ankhenaten disappeared is that he was too spiritual and it almost resulted in Kemet being conquered by the Assyrians had the Amun Ra priesthood not stepped in. We must remember that to the Kemetic people righteousness is being Maa, hence balance, orderly, truthful which is symbolized as Hru wearing the double crown.

Osar (Osiris) symbolizes the white crown of KAMTA (Spiritual Realm). Set represents the red crown in TASETT (Physical Realm). Therefore, Hru wearing the white and red crown symbolizes a balance between the spiritual and physical realities.

A fact that a lot of people do not want to accept is that the reason African religions were not able to survive in North America was that they were too spiritual and not aggressive enough. This is the reason the Ifa religion had to evolve and become Lucumi in Cuba, Umbanda in Brazil, and why the Kongo tradition had to become Palo in Cuba and Qibanda in Brazil, and so on. All of which became Conjure and Rootwork in North America.

So, the final reason they were enslaved and conquered is that they had become too spiritual, which convinced them to see their enemies as friends.

Now, these are all very important points that we need to be aware of because there are many among us now trying to convince us that the power, wealth, etc. that we need comes from an herb, stone, crystal, bone, or some other outside source. These individuals have simply change the names and superimposed their western religious beliefs on to African-style names.

The Divine power is within us. It is not in the tradition. It is not in the artifacts or relics, which are all tools used to convince you of your divinity.

Note that it is not about religion.  I have met some very powerful and spiritual Christians and Muslims because they understood that their religion was the path they had to take to join with their godhead. Whereas I have met people who state they are spiritual who have simply superimposed their old religious beliefs onto spiritual practices.

We have to understand that these are all paths.  If a particular path doesn’t work for you, then there is always self-initiation but don’t delude yourself. All the paths are about becoming one with the god/goddess within you. If you remember this you will not be hoodwinked like our ancestors were in the past.

How to Get the Gods to Answer Your Prayers

19 01 2020

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, if you are new to spirituality and metaphysics, one of the most complex subjects to wrap your head around is the thought that the gods and goddesses are within you.  It is a rough transition to make from all of a sudden praying for a deity to save you, to you saving yourself. So, hopefully, this post will help you in your growth and understanding.

First, to get your prayers answered you must remember that you are a microcosm of a greater Macrocosm, which means that the entire Universe exists within you and that there are no outside forces that are going to save you. Psychologically speaking this means that we all have a conscious, subconscious and Superconscious. Remember, the conscious is the rational and decision making part of our being or our soul. The subconscious is the autonomous part of our being that maintains our physical wellness and helps us to physically survive. While the Superconscious is the divine spark or the collective unconscious part of our being that is commonly referred to as God within or simply put, God.

Now, our Superconscious mysteriously and intuitively gives us solutions to all of our problems but to access it we must relax, surrender and have faith in it. This is a challenge for a lot of us because most of us live in a western society that trains us to trust what we can physically see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and feel. In other words, we are taught that the only things that are real are those things we can assess with our five physical senses. So we feel that for something to work, we must logically understand it but the Superconscious (or God) does not operate this way. The Superconscious (or God) works in mysterious ways, which means it functions best when you are not concentrating on it. So, we must approach our Superconscious as if it were a light switch. The same way we trust that the lights will come on when we flip the switch. We have to trust that the Superconscious will act in our favor whenever we access or turn it on as well. If we approach the Superconscious with anxiety, worry, fear, fret, etc. Then it signifies that we do not have faith in our Superconscious and have more faith in what we have learned, which is the reason most prayers are not answered.

To increase our faith in the Superconscious, the sages of antiquity understanding the mysterious nature of the Superconscious and recognizing that It was so abstract, complex and vast. Categorized, labeled and called the Superconscious’ omnipotence and omniscience gods, goddesses, angels, etc. for simplicity purpose. For instance, instead of saying that our Superconscious is all-knowing, the Kemetic sages symbolized this attribute as an ibis (crane, stork, etc. while others symbolized it as an owl) because these birds standstill, which represents concentration and intense focus on one thought, hence wisdom. They called this attribute of the Superconscious Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti, and Thoth in Greek). So, if someone wanted to wisely solve a problem all they needed to do is focus on Djahuti, ask their question, relax, express your gratitude knowing that they will have the solution and go about their normal business.
To signify that the Superconscious will protect someone from physical and spiritual harm. The ancient sages symbolized the mysterious defensive and protective attributes of the Superconscious by a ferocious and fighting animal like a hawk, falcon, lion, etc. (instead of making it a symbol or mascot for a sports team). Then, they called this aspect of the Superconscious/God Hru Aakhuti.
All of the so-called gods and goddesses were created in this same manner, so:

  • Npu  (Sebek, Anubis to see a Npu altar click here ) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to find a way out of no way or to create opportunities. Psychologically speaking he represents our beliefs. Thus, he is the master of all roads and doors, and owner of all keys. Consequently, nothing can be done without his permission, which is why every ceremony, ritual, and a new adventure starts and ends with him. His colors are red, black, white and/or yellow. His sacred color is 3 and multiples of like 9 and 21.
  • Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) is the unifier of Kemet who introduced law, religion, and the science of agriculture, thus making Kemetic a very prosperous civilization. For this reason, Osar represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to unify and bring peace, morality, ethics, compassion, wisdom, prosperity, healing and purity to an individual. He is the Lord of the Underground (Superconscious) because he is seen as the first human being to be deified. His color is white and his totems are everything white.
  • Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti, Thoth) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to resolve problems through wisdom.
  • Hru Aakhuti (Horusakhte) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to protect, defend and clear the road that Npu opens of obstacles. Since he is the forger of iron, which can be used as a tool or weapon, he represents both creativity and violence and controls life and death. His colors are blood red and purple. 
  • Maat represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to find, restore and maintain balance. She has a close relationship with Osar being the lawgiver, Djahuti who is said to have married in some legends while being the sister in others. While other sources indicate that Maat walks alongside Hru Aakhuti and Npu to give direction so that their hunts are successful, orderly, righteous, just and balance. Her colors are sky blue and yellow. Her sacred number is 2.
  • Hru (Hrw, Heru, Horus) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to make us victorious in day-to-day challenges. He symbolizes the fight that exists in every choice and decision that we make, as well as our determination to live life to its fullest. Physiologically he represents the heart. His colors are red and white, and his sacred number is 6.
  • Nebhet (Nephtys) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to attract, harmonize and beautify. She is the patroness of music, art, poetry, etc. and represents pleasure and the easy flowing creative energy found in rivers, streams, brooks, and honey. Physiologically she represents the sexual organs. Her colors are yellow and green, pink and amber. Her sacred number is 5 and multiples including 25.
  • Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) represents the Superconscious’ mysterious ability to nurture and transform a life. She is the Queen of all and so considered a fierce warrior but also the path to one’s heritage and riches. As the Mother of All, she is recognized as being the netcharu of mercy. Physiologically she represents the reproductive organs and digestive system. Her colors are blue and white, and her sacred number is 7.
  • Sokar (Sekher, Soqqar) represents Superconscious’s mysterious ability to overcome the impossible and recover from debilitating illnesses and diseases like smallpox, cancer, etc. Sokar has a simple taste and favors simple things and colors like black, and indigo, some say brown and purple. His sacred number is 13.
  • Set represents the Superconscious’s mysterious ability to create chaos and havoc based upon erroneous beliefs, ideas, fear, guilt, worry, jealousy, and ignorance. It is the lowest manifestation of the Superconscious, which is why it is associated primarily with the ego. As such, Set manifests himself as any chaotic energy symbolized as winds, whirlwinds, storms, and all-natural disasters. Therefore, when there is a thunderstorm it is said to be Hru and Set fighting. When there is an earthquake it is said to be Set usurping one’s Osar, and so on.

The simplest way to get answers from them is to clearly ask your question and allow the answer to come to you.  You can meditate on the question while focusing your eyes on your brow.  Another method that I have had a lot of success with is repeating to myself “Thank you for answering this question of  ___________.”

If you use any of these methods, make sure that you pay attention to your dreams and other synchronistic events that signify that the gods and goddesses are communicating with you. For instance, whenever I ask Npu to speak or give me a sign that a request has been heard. I usually will see a dog wandering around in the middle of the road. I remember one-time Npu communicated back to me by having three dogs walk diagonally across a crossroads. 

Funny thing.  I remember asking Nebhet to give me a sign and one time a black cat typically darts out in front of me while I am driving.  I remember that seemed a little coincidental, so a few days later on a Friday. I was driving and came to a stop because in the middle of the road was a peacock, which is one of her totems. No lie!  Apparently, one of the houses I normally passed had a peacock as a pet and it had gotten loose. 

There are other methods that exist as well. So if you have success with using any of the above methods or you have a proven way that works for you. Please share.

How to Celebrate the Birth of HRU (Winter Solstice)

16 12 2019

Dear Hru (Heru, Horus)

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

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

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

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

Happy Winter SoL-Stice

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

9 12 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings)

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

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

Taoism & Huna

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

Druid Rune System & Ifa Spiritual System

and http://www.runedruid.com/ https://www.pinterest.com/Fasotito/fasotito-memes/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Does It Mean to Live Kemetically?

18 07 2019

abu-simbel-ancient-architecture-2183927 (1)

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to Worship the God/dess Within

It has come to my attention that a lot of people approach spiritual work as if they are in the church, temple or mosque because they have superimposed a lot of their old religious beliefs on to the new path they are on. This is not correct because it will basically make everything the same just with a different name. The only way to change this is by adopting another paradigm.

For instance, as most of you know, I grew up in a Christian household. My father is preacher and my mother songstress. Like most who grew up in a strong Christian household, we went to church 4-5 times per week. For the longest time I could not understand why we went to church so often, until I learned that most Christians especially those from the southern U.S. believe that “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” Simply put, if you do not occupy yourself with something constructive you will eventually do something destructive, so a lot of people would counter this by going to church. Sidebar: Too bad they don’t understand metaphysics because there is a better way but, oh well.

Anyway,  because I went to church so often, when I finally got old enough and left the church.  I always felt as if something was missing.  I remember, I tried filling this void with yoga practices, daily meditation and/or prayer but something was still missing. When I began dabbling with other faiths, I found that filled the void temporarily but not completely mostly because it was outside of my cultural experience.   When I learned about the various energies or deities and the religions that centered around these entities, I learned that to worship them was to serve them but I could not bring myself to worship a deity/angel/archetype after being told for years that gods and goddesses are idols .  Even though it was right under my nose, it took me a long time to figure out that what was missing was the practice of attending church and praying to God on a regular basis.

I felt as if there was a void because I had been taught that this was the only way to worship God who existed outside of me. When I finally found my whole knowledge of self, I realize that since the Divine is omnipresent – meaning everywhere. There is no need to worship the Divine in a church, mosque or temple. Many people feel comfortable and more at ease doing so because it helps to put them in the frame of mind. However, once it is realized that the Divine is everywhere and within you.  Then, when you talk to yourself, you are technically speaking talking to the Divine.

When I realized this, that is when my life changed because I realize that I had been talking down to my Divine for a long time.  You see, some of us have to check our self-talk because some of us talk horribly to the Divine within us. We cuss, swear, call our Divine stupid and dumb when we make a mistake, or tell ourselves what we can or can’t do.  This negative self-talk is truly anti-God, which means to worship the Divine within is to talk positive and affirm itself of its’ divine abilities.

Once I began to change how I talked to myself. I developed a different relationship with my Spirits. For instance, instead of serving them on a daily or weekly basis, it became me honoring and/or feeding them on a weekly basis to serve my purpose.  Remember, the Universe is mental so you must approach spirituality from an empowering perspective.

Beware of Kemetic Bulls***!

26 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Npu – Watching and Weighing the Soul of the Dead

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

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

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

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

Let me tell you something about Kemetic spirituality.

Venerating the Dead

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

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

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

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

That is Kemetic spirituality. Period.

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

Judgement Scale

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

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

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

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

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

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