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 I Said, “F*** the Universe!” to Manifest What I Want

4 08 2019

Fuck the Universe/God/Spirits

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

One of my favorite actions movies from back in the day is Conan the Barbarian starring Arnold Schwarzenegger because it is packed with all sorts of metaphysical references and Arnold doesn’t speak a lot. (BTW my favorite Schwarzenegger movie is the first Terminator because he only has a few lines.) Anyway, one of the best parts of the Conan film is the Battle of the Mounds, where Conan and his friend Subitai are grossly outnumbered by Thulsa Doom’s henchmen, which are Set followers.  As the henchman surround Conan he says the following prayer to his god Crom: 

“Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad, Why we fought or why we died. No, all that matters is that two stood against many. That’s what’s important. Valor pleases you, Crom, so grant me one request – Grant me revenge!  And if you do not listen, then the Hell with you!”

This battle scene and prayer stayed in my mind because when I first started on this path.  I remember reading book after book that talked about the power of the subconscious. I remember meditating and doing all of these rituals to improve my life but, my life continued to get progressively worse because for years as a child. I was taught to put everything in God’s hands. Even though I did not consider myself to be a church going person, my mind subconsciously was still in the church and heavily believed that everything occurs according to God’s will so long as I surrendered to it.

Then one night, I was airlifted to the hospital because I was having trouble breathing. My chest had been hurting and I was having flu symptoms but the Nyquil I had been drinking on the regular just was not cutting it. So when they sent me to the hospital this time to see a specialist, I knew it was more serious than expected.  As I laid on the gurney in the hospital pondering if I were going to live or die, I thought about just giving up and putting my life in God’s hands.

Just the thought sounded cool and would be a great relief but, when the physician returned after doing test and diagnosed my body with having systemic lupus.   I thought how after learning about ancestors and spirits, I still basically believed in putting my trust in God. It was just changed from God to putting my trust in the Spirits.  I noticed that when The Secret and the Law of Attraction became big, I like a lot of people replaced God and/or Spirits with the Universe, but all-in-all. It still boiled down to me putting my faith in God/the Spirits/the Universe or fate and expecting everything is going to work out.

But being diagnosed with lupus and putting my life in God’s hands meant that I would have to settle for whatever happened. This meant that if the physician came back and told me that I only had a few more hours, days, weeks, months or years to live. Then I would have to accept that.

Wondering if I should surrender, like Conan I declared instead ““F*** this s***!”

I was not going to settle for living in a pitiful situation. I was not going to put my life in fate’s hands, so as I said, “F*** the Universe/Spirits!”

F*** the Universe

Ancestors decloaking like predators in Predator 2.

I remember after I said it, that is when my ancestors and spirit guides appeared like the predators did to Danny Glover in Predator 2, as if they were waiting for me to break through the veil.

I have told this story numerous times and the reason I continue to tell it is because for some of us life has to get real gritty for us to say “Enough!”

This is because for many of us raised in the church who have been taught to surrender to God. We have been taught that surrendering means not fighting for what you want and not getting angry. So, a lot of us having these warped ideas about surrendering have superimposed these fluffy bunny ideas onto our spirituality. Consequently, we think that spirituality is all about meditating, praying and chanting OM but, when we people start walking over us or we get passed by. Then, we wonder why are we being treated this way after loving everyone and surrendering to the Higher Power.

It is because sometimes you have to shake your fist at the heavens and even give God the finger. Sometimes you got to do the most vileness thing to make God/the Spirits/the Universe turn Its (Their) head in your direction.

Why? Well, I learned it is because God or the Spirits do not have a physical body, which means they do not feel, smell, hear, taste or physically see.  This is why in most spiritual lore it is said that the netcharu, orishas, simbis, gods and goddesses, angels, etc. are very far removed from this physical plane.  This is very eloquent way of saying that these entities don’t give a damn what happens to you because it is not affecting them in their plane of existence.

F*** the Universe/Gods

Clash of the Titans (1981) Zeus manipulating the life of a human being at will like a mold of clay.

The thing about these elevated spirits is that they do not need to reincarnate back to this physical plane because they exist completely on energy now. Some of these Spirits are so far removed that they do not even remember why we (the living) need food, money or water, which is the reason they are slow on answering prayers. By the way, this is the main reason most people around the world appeal to the Ancestors because they are recently removed and more sympathetic to our needs. Most of the elevated spirits do not even remember the crap that we (the living) have to endure on this physical plane because they are energy. This is a hard pill for a lot of people to swallow but think of it this way. Does electricity care who it shocks or fire care who it burns?   No, because they are energy. 

Now, that being said, we must remember that we are human beings and not animals. What’s the difference? The difference between human beings and animals is that the former decides what they want to do, while the other is commanded to live a certain way by nature. For instance, if we were animals like flies, then we would only live from the spring through the fall months, but we are human beings and we wanted to live the entire season, so the universe obliged. The ability to make a decision and the powers of the universe support our decision is proof that we are Gods and Goddesses but some wants us to believe that our free will is curse. They want us to worship these gods and goddesses.  I say let these people continue to be tossed and turned by the sea of life but I had enough of it, which is why I stopped worshipping god and started invoking.

So, when it comes to surrendering to the God/the Spirits/the Universe (whatever you choose to call the higher power), it simply means trusting that whatever higher power knows more than you, and if you do not like how your life has unfolded. It means most likely that who or what you surrendered to doesn’t know what they hell it is doing because you did not give It/God/the Spirits/the Universe any directions or a goal to focus on.

If you’re mad! Good because it means you will not forget this formula.

You are supposed to surrender your know how to God/the Spirits/the Universe. Meaning, you impress what it is that you want but let God/the Spirits/the Universe work out the details on how to get what you want.

For instance, if you do a ritual/spell for money and “trust” that the God/the Spirits/the Universe is going to do right by you. Then, you might get laid off from the job like I did one time after requesting $3K. Yeah, I got the $3K as part of the severance pay because the God/the Spirits/the Universe has a sense of humor, which I did not find funny at the time. So, how do we put some guidelines on that? I should have said help me to get $3K through a particular medium such as lottery, selling old jewelry, self-employment, etc.  

  1. Stop assuming the God/the Spirits/the Universe know what you want.
  2. Be clear as to what you want and declare it.
  3. After you have clearly defined your goals, now trust that God/the Spirits/the Universe will work out the details on how to manifest it.

What Does It Mean to Live Kemetically?

18 07 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why 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 You Should Be Using an Oracle

14 06 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know the more and more I walk on this path, the more grateful I am to have chosen to come into this lifetime with knowledge of self. You see, one of the things that used to really irk me when I was younger and in the church is whenever you did not know something and wanted clarity in thinking. People would recite James 1:5 which states, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”  The problem is that whenever these people would tell me this they did not explain how to ask or to seek the wisdom of God.

Maat (the Personification of Maa)

Maat (the Personification of Maa)

Thankfully, one of the concepts that I am so grateful to have come into the ‘know’ about is Maa.  Maa is the Kemetic concept of balance, law, order, justice, and righteousness and it is personified by the goddess Ma’at, but I have come to find that Maa is much more than this – in particular, Cause and Effect.

Prior to this walking this path, when unexpected and unplanned things happened, I was quick to say that it was bad and/or evil because we are taught to categorize everything as either as good or evil. Even after learning about Maa, I would continue to think this way because I did not have a profound understanding of Maa. After I studied Maa and began to really apply the principles of Maa to my life, I began to see a pattern. I began to understand that everything has a Cause and Effect, which means whenever we see the physical result of a thing. It is the actual physical and visible Effect that we are witnessing. Most of the time we never see the spiritual and invisible Cause, and because we do not. We are quick to label the physical effect as bad or evil.

If you understand that Cause and Effect are actually two sides of the same coin this means that both the Cause and Effect exist at the same time simultaneously, which is the basis of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung’s theory of synchronicity.  Therefore, when you ask a question regarding a physical Effect, the spiritual Cause exists a the same time and the only reason we cannot see it is because we are so focused on the Effect and not the Cause.  But, if you are a God/Goddess you have the ability to see the spiritual and invisible Cause through unique tools called oracles.

Oracles are divination tools and contrary to popular belief, they are not evil fortunetelling devices use to foretell the future.  They are divination tools, which means that like any other tool it can be used for positive and negative reasons. The reason oracles or divination tools get a bad rep in the West is that con artists have taken advantage of the public’s fear and ignorance of the human psyche.  This is why to maintain the spiritual integrity of these divination tools a lot of non-western cultures will explain metaphorically that oracles are divination tools used to communicate between human beings and the gods/goddesses (within your being).  For instance, divination allows you to see the limited physical realm (TASETT) and the unlimited spiritual realm (KAMTA) so that you get a holistic view (symbolized as the Eye of Ra and Eye of Amun Ra on the Maa Aankh shown below.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Maa Aankh with Utchat (Eye of Ra or Solar Eye symbolizing the visible and physical realm and the Eye of Amun Ra or Lunar Eye symbolizing the invisible and spiritual realm).

But, once you understand that the human being is a microcosm of our Macrocosmic universe, meaning that like the universe we have a visible, physical and habitual part of our being, as well as an invisible, spiritual and intuitive part of our being.  Then, it becomes clear that an oracle is simply a tool used to communicate between the invisible, spiritual and visible, physical parts of our being.   What this means is that anything can be used as an oracle including your dreams, omens, the bible (or any book for that matter) and anything that synchronous events, etc. because an oracle gives you a holistic view of life by allowing you to communicate with the Divine within your being.

So at the beginning of every project, lunar cycle, year, etc. you should be doing an oracle reading to understand how events are going to unfold in your life. Every time there is a problem and you are looking for ways to resolve it, then it would be in your best interest to use an oracle like the Jews and ancient Christians used throughout the bible such as Joseph and Pharaoh and the escape of Jesus and his family to Egypt, etc.). This is the reason divination has always been used by people throughout traditional Africa and Asia.

Unlike in the West where oracles such as the tarot are used to entertain the curious, in China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc. oracles widely used and diviners are greatly respected.

Divination in Asia

Divination is a very important part of spiritual development because for one it reminds us that we are a community and are part of a whole versus an individual who is greater than the group. We need this constant reminder because in this fast-paced society that celebrates the highlights of the individual instead of the group. It is easy to get swept away in the hustle and bustle of life and before long we find ourselves stressed from overworking, worrying about paying bills, etc. while trying to spend time with loved ones. So, divination helps us to get back to the ethereal aspect of life.

What is a Bad Reading

I must admit that in the beginning, I did not use divination tools or oracles because I had a bad experience with them. Actually, on a few separate occasions, I had some poor interpretations given to me. The individuals who were doing the readings always interpreted the oracle reading like fanatics interpreted the bible as the Word of God, so they would cast the oracle and ask “What should I do?” After following their counsel and things went awry.  I later learned that the oracles do not replace your will meaning that it is not supposed to tell you what you are supposed to do. It only informs you of the consequences based upon your decisions.  So, for the record there is really no such thing as a bad reading, there are bad, poor or misinterpretations.

Routine Divination

But, I started using oracles on a regular basis when I saw a documentary one time of some African men hunting for their tribe. According to the documentary, the village had gone for some weeks without eating meat because of a drought. So the hunting party went in search of an animal to feed their entire village. In the video, the men had tracked an animal but the animal’s tracks began to mislead them so they threw some shells to find the animal. After they received their consultation, they continued on their hunt per the oracle and they were able to get enough meat to feed their village. This had a large impact on me and inspired me to use the Kemetic tablets.

So, I strongly encourage you to use an oracle. If you do not know how to use one, there are numerous books on how to do so. In fact, one of the simplest oracles that anyone can use is a pendulum but you are not restricted or limited to that one. You can use whatever resonates with you the best. I just encourage you to use at least one so that you can avoid unexpected circumstances.

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.

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.
