Why they Attack Kemetic Shamans/Spiritualists?

3 09 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, I still run into people who confuse the Kemetic religion with Kemetic spirituality and do not understand that the two are drastically different. Consequently, some of these individuals staunchly criticize Kemetic spirituality and claim that it is a fad, when in fact they were not practicing Kemetic spirituality at all. So, before explaining the difference between the two, let’s understand the difference between religion and spirituality.

The Difference between Religion and Spirituality

Religion is basically a set of beliefs that over time became norms, rules, tradition and superstition. To the point that you hear people saying don’t do this or you will be punished or do this and you will be rewarded.

Spirituality is different from religion in the sense that it is a personal understanding about Divine. Spirituality usually involves understanding how one’s mind works and how to reach one’s greatest potential, so it employs a number of practices such as divination, meditation, spell work, altar work, prayer, rituals, etc.  Spirituality cannot be mass produced and does not follow a cookie-cutter scheme, meaning one remedy does not work for everyone. The other thing, shamans and spiritualists usually don’t follow others because they have learned to trust God within them over what someone else says. Unlike religion where you are given a definition of who God is and is not, in spirituality you discover God from within and you spend the rest of your life trying to align yourself with this indwelling intelligence.

It is important to understand that religion is a great tool for some things but ineffective for others. For instance, religion is great for instilling beliefs into children and people who have no self-control or self-discipline. Religion is great for reminding children and people who lack self-discipline of the importance of being moral.  But, religion does a horrible job at explaining an individual’s destiny because it is not personalized. This is the reason if you go to church and state that you have a problem. They give the same cookie cutter or blanket remedy, which is to pray or if you are Catholic to say Hail Mary’s, etc.  Spirituality is tailored to an individual’s needs but in order for spirituality to work.  There has to be a clear understanding of the Divine within, which means understanding one’s mind.

Kemetic Spirituality is Indigenous Thinking

That being said, the Kemetic people initially did not have a religion. A religion later evolved from their spiritual beliefs and practices because over time, people started needing rules since they started lacking self-control due to foreign influence.

Now there are a lot of Kemetic religious followers who tell people (especially newcomers) that they need to set up an altar and give offerings regularly to their ancestors, gods and goddesses, in order to get something. First, this is wrong in so many ways because it is a cookie-cutter remedy especially not knowing the individual’s needs. In general, it is recommended to start with altar work but for some people this might be confusing and it may deter their spiritual progress. Some people may be too open to the point that they are picking up all types of influences. For instance, a lot of people coming from the Pentecostal denomination are open to spirits via the Pentecostal movement of receiving the Holy Ghost, but the lack of metaphysics makes them wrongly see any spirit that speaks-in-tongues as the Holy Ghost. This is the reason these churches have not spiritually evolved.

Informing a newcomer to build an altar and give offerings without explaining why is truly a religious perspective (and western one at that).  To think that some entity outside of our being is going to give us something because we gave it a cup of beer or some fruit is crazy.

I always ask when I come across these people with this thinking, “How did you get things before you made offerings to the god/goddess and ancestors?”

Most people who take this religious path do not understand the question because they fail to see that they have superimposed their Christian or Islamic beliefs on to their understanding of the Kemetic tradition. They usually walk away saying that Kemetic spirituality does not work but they were not practicing Kemetic spirituality, they were practicing an aspect (or someone’s interpretation) of the Kemetic religion.

The Kemetic shaman and spiritualist, understanding that the Divine resides within and it all deals with the power the of their mind, knows that we each have three parts to our being: the BA (Higher Self)/Superconscious symbolized as the white Hedjet crown and personified as Osar (Osiris), sahu (lower self)/subconscious symbolized as the red Deshret crown and personified as Set, and Ab/conscious symbolized as the unified Pschent crown personified as Hru (Horus).

Most of what we have learned from birth is governed and overseen by our Set, so when we want something or try to do something new and different. It is our Set who steps in and playa hates by discouraging us from reaching our goals and potential.

So, say you are a guy who wants to get a woman to be in a relationship with you. You pray, meditate, do a spell, make a sigil and/or do a ritual one or two times to impress it on your subconscious and move the Universe so that you get a woman. Well, it is your Set who immediately gets on your left shoulder and says, “It is not going to work” based upon your past experiences and also because Set does not like change.  In fact, most people fail to accomplish their goals because as soon as they say what they want.  Their Set comes in and discourages them from doing so.  In fact, as soon as you do the meditation, spell, sigil and/or ritual and start thinking about it. Your Set is going to appear and try to discourage you by filling you with doubt. From a psychological perspective, if your goals (seeds) are not deeply impressed upon your mind.  They are on the surface and therefore superficial, which exposes it to winds of change in TASETT.  This is why Set is able to discourage so many of us from achieving our goals.

TASETT - The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Lower Self.

TASETT – The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our lower self and subconscious.

That’s why there is an alternative.

If you pray, do the meditation, make a sigil, spell and/or do a ritual repetitively, then you impress the goal on your sahu(subconscious), which in turn is forced to hand it over to your BA (Superconscious). This means, do not think about the goal or how it is going to manifest.  Just know that you are putting in the work for it to manifest and by Maa (Cause and Effect) it will.  This process is referred to as sowing seeds into KAMTA-the Black Lands (which is another term for the Superconscious) because KAMTA is symbolized as deep dark soil, hence a visual pun to the deep recesses of our mind, so that your Osar (Osiris/Higher Self) works on it.

KAMTA - The Black Lands. Literally also known as the fertile region of Upper Kamit in the southern part of the country. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Higher Self.

Understand.  When you think about your goal especially after doing spiritual work.  You are in essence telling your Set to work on the goal based upon what you have learned thus far, which it cannot because your personal knowledge is limited. It is equivalent to putting on a pot of water and watching it come to a boil, which if you stare at the pot. It seems that it never will. You have to do the work and forget about it, which gives the goal to Osar and this is how your Ab or conscious mind (personified as Hru) gets into the fight and we see the epic battle between Hru and Set.  It is your Hru’s responsibility to maintain this focus and ignore the influences of Set.

Hru Osar and Set

Now to assist your Hru you can also employ the aid of Osar’s allies, which are the guardian spirits commonly called gods and goddesses. The angels, deities, gods, goddesses, spirit guides, guardian spirits, etc. are all connected to the same source or KAMTA. In other words, they are archetypes or emissaries of your Superconscious that focus on specific tasks.  For instance, Npu (Anubis) is the name of the Superconscious that opens the way, finds opportunities and lost things, etc. So, if you are a guy who wants to get a woman to be in a relationship with you and you want to employ Npu’s help. You may light a candle and give Npu an offering of chocolate hearts, knowing that it is your Superconscious that is still doing the work.  Your Set is still going to appear but now with the added imagery and symbols that are being impressed upon your subconscious, it is harder to be discouraged and easier to keep the symbols in mind, thus ignore Set’s influences and resist the temptation to lust after your results by thinking about it.

The difference between Kemetic religion and Kemetic spirituality is that the so-called deities in Kemetic Spirituality are tools to assist you in control of your subconscious and unifying it with your Superconscious and conscious intent. They are not objects to be worshipped, which is the reason most Kemetic shamans and spiritualists have a host of deities from other cultures as well.

The basis of Kemetic spirituality is forcing Set (the sahu/subconscious or lower self) to work with Osar (the BA/Superconscious or Higher Self) and Hru (the Ab/conscious or mid-self or Soul). So, if you are serious about practicing it, you really need to study how your mind works. Learning about the Kemetic history, the Kemetic  legends, etc. is helpful but it cannot help you if you do not have a reference point, which is YOU.

Kemetic Spirituality is based upon the mind and anyone who seriously practices Kemetic spirituality would never go back to organized religion because it is a different way of thinking.  Most who practice Kemetic shamanism and Kemetic spirituality do not live their lives by a set of rules because they don’t fear that by doing so they are going to be punished or rewarded, which is childish thinking.

One of the beauties of Kemetic spirituality is that it can be explained scientifically, which is important in this western society that places major emphasis on the intellect. I have nullified and completely dismantled more religious arguments against my practice by simply explaining that what I do by having an altar, doing a spell, etc. is accessing my Higher Mind; and get religious people to see that they go to church out of a tradition of guilt, fear and superstition, and not because they desire to do so.  Simply put, if something is good for you, you don’t have to beg people to try and do it like many religious people beg people to attend religious service or worship “God” from the corners and pulpits.

This is why once an individual crosses into the realm of Kemetic Spirituality, there is no way they can unlearn what they know about the mind after they have learned it. In other words, there is no way they can return back to religious thinking and this is what traditional African thinking is about.  Now you see that the reason so many people in the west are against indigenous spirituality is because, we don’t make good slaves.

Aretha’s Funeral Decoded

1 09 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know it has come to my attention that a lot of people have not discussed with their loved ones why they don’t go to church because: 1) they are either afraid to do so, or.  2) They don’t know how to explain it.  This dawned on me as I was flipping back and forth watching the service for Aretha Franklin and then heard the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta.

Before beginning, let me first acknowledge the obvious rituals that were performed for public viewing.  The Ariana Grande that people keep talking about was just there for eye-candy. She was basically there to make sure that her generation (following) tuned in to hear Williams’ sermon. The whole she is wearing a mini-skirt is a ploy. These entertainers have professionals around them everyday who inform them on what is appropriate/inappropriate.  She purposely wore the dress to disrespect the black church in order to get people to think about religious tradition.

Now, the public viewing was for five days and it was broadcasted in some areas for three days. Three as most of you know is the sacred number of the messenger and psychopomp spirits Npu (Anubis), Ellegua, Mercury and Hermes. Five is the sacred number of the spirit that governs many singers Nebhet, Oshun, Venus and Aphrodite.  According to numerology 5+3=8, which relates to fate.

From an occult perspective, the reason there was a star-studded funeral service is because the powers that be were trying to tap into the remaining essence of Ms. Franklin’s spirit (imo). As I watched bits and pieces of the funeral service conducted at my old church, I was reminded (for those who do not know about Aretha Franklin) that she is the last of great divas.  Aretha, unlike the other divas of her time (e.g. Patti Labelle, Gladys Knight, etc.) was a preacher kid of a great Baptist preacher. She started singing in the church when she a little and her following began at an early age because of what people call in the church “the anointing.”

What is the anointing? The “anointing” is a real basic term that is used mostly in Protestant Christendom to explain an extraordinary talent. In the black church/community the term is used to signify that an individual is working with a higher spirit (commonly attributed to Jesus) to heal the sick, to preach, to minster to downtrodden, and it is extended to include intelligence as well as musical talents, which mainstream America calls prodigies or genuises.

Unfortunately, because most black churches do not delve into traditional African thought, esoteric studies and metaphysics (out of conditional religious fear and social stigma), they simply call these gifts anointing. Everyone according to African American thought has an anointing, which is also sometimes synonymous with one’s Calling. Most people have to find their anointing/calling but some of us return to this earthly plane with it.  This is because the anointing is the essence of a god, goddess or ancestral spirit. Aretha’s anointing comes from a soul of a Fon devotee of Gbadu, who is the goddess of fate, hence the number 8. In Greek mythology she is the goddess of Tyche and in Roman mythology she is the goddess Fortuna, who was commonly portrayed in a domestic context, which linked her to Oset (Aset, Isis). Now if you review some of Aretha’s iconic songs such as Bridge Over Troubled Waters, A Change is Going to Come, Ain’t No Way, Daydreaming, and Natural Woman, while keeping in mind that a spirit of fate and fortune was anointing her to see women-in particular black women-in another light other than domestic servants.

Aretha was anointed and you can hear it in her voice. All her songs moved peoples’ soul. Unlike the great soul singer Sam Cooke, Aretha got (official) permission to cross over from singing spiritual music to secular music because her music reflected our experience in and outside of church – particularly women’s perspective.  Just think about her songs “Do right woman, do right man” and the classic “Respect,” which raised the consciousness of both men and women.   The thing is, there are a number of songs that she has made and collaborated on which talk about our experience.

But, Aretha’s anointing left her sometime around the time when she did the song “Think” for the Blues Brother’s film.  If you compare her early music to the 80’s song “Freeway of Love” you will see that the latter is commercial crap. It only really became a hit because it was a crossover song to pop culture and like most crossover songs, it has nothing to do with empowerment but focuses on the superficialities of love.  So, the anointing (the spirit of Gbadu) left Aretha a long time ago and what we were really left with was a shadow or copy of the original.

Everyone in Detroit knows that like most people whose anointing leaves, Aretha started doing some weird and outlandish things that only accentuated her ego.  She didn’t go all out but her separate occasions I witnessed her showboating.  In one instance, I remember the MC of an event announced that Aretha was not going to sing because she was under the weather.  So an amateur singer sung in her place and performed so well, that Aretha mysteriously was healed and chose to sing just to put the amateur singer in her place. Lets not forget that before Aretha passed she sang the national anthem for 4 minutes and 35 seconds.  Yeah. One word.

Ego.

The Ego is usually the first sign that you know the anointing has left. It is similar to when Michael Jackson started acting out and doing outlandish things. As many have noticed who study mythology, Jackson’s anointing was owned by the god Pan more specifically the avatar of Pan commonly known as Peter Pan, the childish spirit of the wild that dies once he leaves Neverland. In fact, there are many stars who have their anointing leave. Some manage to keep their anointing a little longer than others, but most eventually crack under the social pressure, which is what we call selling out.

Anyway, because most of our people don’t understand our power, the so-called “powers” that be used the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr., as a last attempt to encourage people to return to church based upon her legacy.  It was also an attempt to encourage people to return to the mosque, which is why they continued to show Min. Farrakhan even though they did not allow him speak. I am not saying Farrakhan was a willing participant of the theatrics. I am just noting that they used his image for their purpose. Question: When was the last time you ever saw Min. Farrakhan and Bill Clinton at the same function? Answer: Never.  This is a sign it is Theatrics.

Once, I saw this, it all made sense why Williams’ eulogy sounded more like a scolding for not attending church instead of being focused on Aretha’s accomplishments.  Williams’ eulogy was also a litmus test to see how many people are out of the church and feeling Williams’ message.  What they discovered was that the eulogy fell on deaf ears because they are dealing with another generation. So understand, that the powers-that-be were using the legacy of Aretha Franklin as another means of social control. I guarantee you that the same sermon will not be said when any of the other divas make transition.

Now, why don’t we go to church (kingdom hall, temple or mosque)?

It is because all of these religions place emphasis on empowering an entity that exists outside of our self. Most people cannot put a finger on it because they do not understand the nature of the mind.  But we have spent a lot of time worshipping a deity (called Jesus, God, Jehovah, Allah, etc.), meanwhile our lives and our community have continued to drastically decay.  Most people today attend religious service out of habit and social conditioning because it is programmed in their mind that it is the thing to do, or they will be punished (go to hell, cursed, etc.). Only a few people (that’s us) get it and realize that most people are following a religious superstition.

We are the generation that understands that if I want to improve my finances. I have to learn money management because Jesus ain’t going to do it for me. If I want to improve my relationships, I may have to learn how to talk to my woman/man like I want to be talked to, because Jesus ain’t going to do it for me.

In other words, we are the generation that is beginning to realize and break the religious/social conditioning, of believing that some outside force is going to magically make our lives better. If we want something different, we have to empower ourselves and this is the reason we do not attend church.

We know that a 15-minute meditation session where we focus on aligning our conscious with our higher self, is more powerful and effective than a five or six hour Sunday service that focuses solely on entertaining our Ego with singing, dancing and a pep rally sermon.

Remember, that in Kemetic thinking the Ego is personified as Set, the Lord of Chaos, Confusion and Calamity. Any thing that accentuates our Ego is only going to cause problems.

If you noticed anything else funny/weird about this funeral, please share.

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.

Creating Permanent Positive Change through Invocation

5 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, if you grew up in the church, a religious or Christian household, you know that the one practice that is heavily stressed is prayer. We are instructed that if we are sick, having money issues, problems with our family, needing a raise on our job, etc. We are instructed to pray because…prayer changes things.

But, what I have learned over the years is that this is not entirely true. I remember the first time I got into a bind and really tried to pray to God for some help.  Like many young Black males in the City of Detroit during the mid-1980s, I was trying to avoid the crack related violence occurring all over the city. I had attended church all of my young life but when I entered my teen years, I was no longer under the protection of my parents’ spiritual grace. So, I tried my best to pray and ask God to help me but, my request fell on deaf ears.

I remember asking more experienced people at my parents’ church how to pray and why I felt that my prayer was not being answered.  The response these people told me, led me to believe that my prayers were not being answered because I did not have faith.  Since, I did not have faith, it was like oh well, too bad, so sad, go get some faith and suffer until I did so for God to help me.

I remember I after hearing this, I walked away contemplating suicide because in my young mind.  It was reasoned that God did not want me because I was not one of the “Chosen Ones.”

Fortunately, thanks to intervention from my ancestors and spirit guides I was saved and directed to take an alternative path.  It was through this alternative path that I learned that the reason prayer does not work and for that matter affirmation, positive thinking, creative visualization, rituals and even magick a lot of times does not work is because as many church going people claim, “the lack of faith.” But, it is not because of the lack of faith in God.

It is the lack of faith in oneself and their belief in God. Now, the reason most people lack faith in them selves in regards to their belief in God is because we have been taught to fear the Divine and that to question anything in regards to the Divine is considered blasphemous. Now, that we are adults, we can put aside these superstitions and recognize that the reason we have all been drawn to understanding the nature of our being in regards to the Divine, is because deep within our being.  We understand that the secret to knowing the Divine lies in understanding our mind.

Understanding the KAMTA (Spiritual) and TASETT (Physical)  Aspect of Our Being

So, in order to have faith in our self in regards to the belief of God, we must learn to think differently about ourselves and our relationship to the Divine.  This means understanding that we are all made in the image of the Divine and that everything that exists in the Universe exists within us in an infinitely small scale. Since our Universe is composed of energy/matter, everything that has been discovered and undiscovered both energy/matter can be found within our being.  Everything that we see and do not see in the Universe can be found within our being as well.  Therefore, metaphysically we say that both the visible, physical realm (TASETT – the Red Lands) and the invisible, spiritual realm (KAMTA) can be found within our being. Psychologically speaking, the visible, habitual or TASETT part of our being corresponds to our subconscious or sahu, while the invisible, unusual or KAMTA part of our being corresponds to our Superconscious or BA.

Therefore, there is a known, familiar, habitual, subconscious part (sahu) of our being symbolized as TASETT, which is based upon our beliefs and.  An unknown, unfamiliar and inhabitual or unusual, Superconscious (BA) part of our being symbolized as KAMTA that is based upon our knowing.

Understand, the difference between belief and knowing is that beliefs are based upon observable events and things that occur in one’s environment. Beliefs are usually communicated to us by someone we see as an authority figure such as our parents, other adults, teachers, leaders, politicians, etc. Beliefs are subjective, meaning they change based upon an individual’s cognizance, maturity, intelligence and experience, which is why most people believe in God.  However, knowing is based upon an individual’s inner-sperience or insperience. Knowing does not change, meaning that when you know something such as 2+2 =4, you cannot go back and unlearn it.

TASETT – the Lower Kemet/lower self/subconscious – sahu part of our being.

It should be noted that the root of the word TASETT is Set, who is personification of our sah (subconscious ego-self) and the spirit of chaos, confusion, calamity, storms, etc.  This means that since our lives are based upon either our beliefs or knowing., most of our problems in life are due to the fact that we live our life on autopilot based upon our sahu (subconscious) beliefs and not our BA  (Superconscious) knowing. For instance, although most of us know that life is full of shades of gray, we believe that life is black and white. Although we know that we are all unique individuals with different backgrounds and experiences, we erroneously believe that we should all have the same morals, ethics, standards, etc. and if we do not, we label one another as being crazy, etc. When the truth of the matter is that when an individual does not act or behave in the appropriate manner, it is because they are living their lives based upon their erroneous beliefs and not knowing, which is symbolized as living under the sway of Set. Understand, obstacles, problems, trials, etc. are simply signs that we are in an unfamiliar situation that we have no knowledge of.  The problems become worse when we try to resolve them based upon our limited belief system within our sahu because the purpose of the sahu is not to solve problems but to help us to physically survive. Problem solving is a task assigned to our BA – the knowing part of our being, which is the reason KAMTA is ruled by Osar, the ultimate judge, spirit of knowledge, peace, wisdom, stability, prosperity and tranquility.     

KAMTA is the Kemetic term our Nilotic ancestors gave us to remind us that our greatest potential is within like the dark fertile soil of southern Kemet or the dark and mysterious starry night sky.  Therefore, new actions, behaviors, creative ideas, etc. must be cultivated from out of the deep recesses of our mind or out of KAMTA. This is the mysterious part of our being which means we are not supposed to understand it logically. This also means that we are all genius, we are all brilliant, we are all amazing individuals but in order for us to be geniuses, brilliant and amazing individuals we have to cultivate this mindset from within and make it a new habit. Simply repeating an affirmation, visualizing, praying, etc. means nothing if it is not cultivated within and made into knowing. People who are geniuses, brilliant and amazing do not believe they are geniuses, brilliant and amazing. They know it.

How Do You Cultivate Knowing? 

The way to cultivate knowing is by practicing following your intuition. Before I continue, remember ideas coming from our BA (Superconscious) symbolized as a KAMTA are going to be strange, unfamiliar and even a little weird but they will never put you in harms way, endanger you or force you to go against your ethics.

Remember, this is the part of our being that we are unfamiliar with, so to tap into it you have to do something that is out of the ordinary. For instance, when my wife and I got married, we both wanted a child. Like many married couples desiring to have a child, we stressed about it and even talked to an obstetrician to discuss our concerns, which is the sahu approach.

Then, my wife found a Bes statue. Bes, in Kamta belief is a “civilized” African faery/dwarf spirit who protects children, households from negative spirits and assists women in pregnancy.  Since he works closely with Nebhet (Nephthys)– the Lady of the House and Npu (Anubis)– the Kemetic Messenger spirit, I painted him red black, white and yellow. Now, I remember my wife placed the Bes statue in our living room and then he moved to our bedroom. Next, she offered him pieces of candy and then one day, I offered him a glass of Red Stripe beer, which are all BA practices.

The next thing I know, one day my wife and I were joking around a little bit more than usual. I found myself spontaneously dancing for no reason, almost as if I was teenage boy flirting with her.  This went on for a long time during the month of February.  To make a long story short, almost a month after meeting the obstetrician, I had to go out of town for a conference. On the third day of the conference in March, my wife called me with some important news and told me she was pregnant.

Today, when I reflect back and think about that entire scenario of how our daughter was conceived, I tell you that Bes did not descend out of the ether into my wife and my body.  Bes was already present because he existed within the deep recesses of my mind or KAMTA and consequently, Bes manifested out of the darkness of my higher spirit. The offerings that were given to him were mental triggers to activate this spirit within my wife and I, so that he came into the light.  The funny thing was that during the pregnancy, my wife began to take on the form of Bes’ wife Tawret.

Now, if you are new to this and it sounds weird it is because you are relying on the intellect of your sahu (subconscious) and trying to figure it out but this is not the purpose of your sahu.  It is our BA’s responsibility to solve our problems. We are simply supposed to say, “Hey, I want x, y and z” and our BA is supposed to figure out how to make it happen.

Remember, the knowing part of your being does not need you to understand how it works.  My wife and I did not question how we were going to become pregnant. We focused on knowing that we would by allowing the BA (Superconscious) part of our being to figure out the details.

For some people, this sounds bizarre because you have seen pictures and/or film of people prostrated before some strange idol. These same images usually label the followers as being pagan, primitive and overly superstitious people who will give these idols anything their first born.  Sorry people, this is all fantasy created by so-called monotheistic people who have no understanding about how their mind works. True positive and permanent change is based upon connecting with our BA using images and symbols to awaken our potential.

Why I Use Vodou as a Black Man in America

17 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, I was 16 years old and my mother had sent my 12-year-old brother and I to the store to get a few items so that she could make lunch for us and my father when he returned home from work. The Famer Jack grocery store was almost a half-a-mile from the house, so as usual my brother and I told each other jokes as we walked to and from the store. On our way back from the store as we were walking home and carrying plastic grocery bags, a squad car out of nowhere, came to a screeching stop on the side of the road. Two white officers jumped out of the car and asked where we were coming from. Scared as hell, we said the store. Then, the officers told us to go to the side of the car, while they frisked us.  Finding nothing, they jumped back in the car and sped off down the street.

As my brother and I picked up the groceries off the ground, while seeing passerby ride by us. All I could remember was feeling shame, frustrated, fear and anger all at the same time. My brother and I were speechless for the rest of the walk home.

When we got home, my father had just arrived and my mother asked us why did it take so long.  We told them that the cops had pulled us over. I remember telling my parents that I wanted to run from them but, my parents told my brother and I did the right thing. We were not guilty of anything so there was no reason to run but, still I was angry, embarrassed, upset, and frustrated because the way it sounded.  It was normal for the police to do this. The officers did not offer any apology or anything, as if they assumed that my brother and I were probably up to no good, just not today.

This was the first time I experienced being powerless but understood that it was not about being right but about surviving.  This incident made me think about all of those other kids who did not have parents or some wise adult in their sphere to tell them to focus on surviving and not on what was right. It made me think about one of my great uncles who was murdered by a white man during the Jim Crow era and justice was not served because my uncle was Black. It also made me think about all of those untold stories of Black men and women who were murdered all throughout history.

But, the incident also made me see a big chink in Christianity because I remembered thinking how could you believe that Jesus protects you but you see police harassment and brutality as a part of life?  I mean no disrespect to my parents and older generations who have had to deal with this nonsense. I understand that is what they had to do at the time and no matter how much we, in the younger generation(s), may disagree with the choices made by those in the Civil Rights era. The facts are, those people made sacrifices by being attacked by dogs, having fire houses opened on them, etc., in order for us to talk to today. For that, I am extremely appreciative and grateful but, we live in a different time now and I do not have to live by the Christian Golden Rule.

Now, I pay homage to my warrior spirits because the blood of Jesus only covered a fraction of my being, but my spirits cover all of me like the cape of Spawn, because they are the warrior aspect of my BA (Higher Self/Superconscious).

Ever since I have come into the understanding of who I AM, I know that I shape my reality.  I know that what works for “them” does not work for me and vice versa.  And, that’s why as a Black Man, I thank God for the Vodou, which gives me a different way of seeing.  Please note, that by the term Vodou I am referring to the rebellious African spirit and Bantu-Kongo cosmological thinking in the western society.

For instance, after coming into my own, the last time I was pulled over by the cops, it was Maat who oversaw the whole incident. It was at night and a cop pulled me over because my rear lights were out. Then, the cop escorted me to the nearest auto parts store so that I could replace the fuse that had blown.

The point that I am making, is that we need to stop being hypocritical. It absolutely drove me crazy hearing my parents and their generation talk about the goodness of Jesus and how powerful the blood of Jesus was in one breath but, then complain how the “man” kept them down, harassed and brutalized them, as if “the man” was more powerful than God.

I hear people today saying a similar thing. They talk about how we are gods and goddesses but then complain about how the “man” or some other conspiracy is working on them. I mean, if you claim to be a god or goddess…SHOW AND PROVE!

Which Kemetic Crown Do You Wear? (What Spiritual Path Are You On?)

17 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

You know, ever since the 1999 blockbuster film The Matrix came out, there has been more references to this movie then a little bit, and for good reason. The Matrix was heavily coated with all sorts of metaphors and symbolism, which is the reason so many people loved it but something else happened after that film was made. As we moved deeper into this Age of Information, there has been an overload of information. People suddenly began to realize that we were all living in a matrix (system of control), which has prompted discussions on what to do about it and how to get out of the matrix.

There are all these theories of how to get out of the matrix but the message gets muddled because there is too much information. There are a lot of people out there spreading “good news” but some of this information is not meant for all of us. That’s right. Information is great but a lot of times too much information causes problems as well because it stimulates the ego-self (sahu part of our being)-particularly the intellect. I remember that when I first started this walk (in this lifetime), I used to feel so overwhelmed until I discovered from a shamanic perspective how to chart my spiritual path.

After I charted my spiritual path, that is when I realized that it is not meant for everyone to get out of the matrix like the Kemetic ruler King Mentuhetep II (shown on the left). Some of us came here to fight. Some of us came here to build. Some of us come here to learn.  Some of us have come here to become living gods and goddesses.  While some of us came here to be sheep, which is the reason I stop wasting time and energy trying to convince people that don’t want to know and protesting a long time ago.  To understand this, you must understand your purpose of being here or said another way, “Why did you choose to incarnate to this plane?”  Remember, we are not physical beings that were created out of happenstance.  We were not created by accident or through some random and coincidental events.  We must remember that we are spiritual beings (BA-Superconscious) with a soul (Ab/conscious), having a physical experience (sahu subconscious).

Thanks to our Kemetic ancestors, we know that according to the Kemetic creation theory that in the beginning there was Nyun (nothing or no-things) although Amun Ra was always present.  Then, the Divine said (paraphrasing) “I called myself into being. Finding no place to stand, I brought Maa out of the Nyun.” Thence, according to our Bantu-Kongo ancestors, the Divine as Amun Ra (Musoni) made Ra (Tukula), Khepera (Kala) and Ra Atum (Luvemba).  This means You – Family – are the Divine Conscious that brought yourself into being.  Each and every one of us chose to be here and we brought ourselves into being through our Father’s Will/Ra and Mother’s Nyun womb.

Therefore, these three parts of our being (BA, Ab and sahu), which are symbolized on the Maa Aankh, means we are a microcosm within a Macrocosm, a maa aankh within a greater Maa Aankh or simply put a god and goddess.  We all chose to come to this physical plane of existence for a reason. Most of us came here to prove our divinity. Some of us chose to come here so that we can be like the hero Neo in The Matrix and use our divine powers to manipulate this matrix we are in. While others of us are just here for the ride.

Why are we here and how do we interact with the matrix is based upon the spiritual path we have chosen prior to coming to this plane.  The spiritual path we have chosen can be identified by the Kemetic crowns which also corresponds to part of our spirit/self that we are polarized with the most.

The Crowns of Kemet does not simply signify the region but also indicates the part of the Spirit that the wearer is polarized. This is the inspiration behind Catholic popes choosing a name.

The White Hedjet crown is polarized with the BA/Higher Self/KAMTA. The Red Deshret crown is polarized with the sahu/lower self/TASETT, and the White and Red Pschent Crown is balanced. What are the spiritual paths?

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

Well, if it sounds horribly strange that we are gods and goddesses or just downright blasphemous.  You may on the Red Deshret path, which means that you are not getting out of the matrix because you are dependent on it. You believe that the way to change what is wrong with the system is by protesting and/or revolting so that you can replace the current system with another system. For instance, you may detest capitalism and democracy but you favor socialism and communism. You are here to understand that you cannot depend upon anything externally.

KAMTA – the Upper Kemet/ Higher (Upper) Self/ Superconscious – BA part of our being.  KAMTA also represents the BA, KHU, SHEKHEM & REN Divisions of the Spirit.

If this sounds a little farfetched but makes sense. You are probably on the White Hedjet path and you are most likely here to use your divine powers to create change. You have most likely participated in several protests and saw no real change, which has led you to see that the only way to create change is by having your own power. Those of you on the white Hedjet path come here to use your powers to improve the wellbeing of your family, community and race.  You may have a strong connection to your ancestors. and a keen understanding of history.  You have learned not to depend upon anything externally and are experimenting with the whole process of going within.

If this sounds perfectly correct. You are on the White and Red Pschent path and most likely here to get out of the matrix. You have seen it all and done it all in past lives, and now you see that everything has its pros and cons. You don’t care either way if you are in a capitalist society or a communist society because your objective is to use your powers to manipulate the matrix. You are on the path to become a netcharu (netjeru, force of nature, guardian spirit, etc.) who does not need to reincarnate back into this physical plane. Your sole purpose is to master both planes of existence as the hero Hru had accomplished, hence the significance of the white and red Pschent crown.

Please note that this is not by any means meant to determine an individuals’ spiritual maturity per se.  It is meant to help you to understand the spiritual path that you have chosen so that you can better focus and understand the messages, omens, synchronistic events, etc. coming to you and how to best use the information you are receiving.

Akhenaten Is Not a Kemetic Hero

13 07 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

This Setian society is so interestingly flawed that it is ridiculous. What do I mean? Well, if you look at any documentary about the Kemetic civilization, it will always be the same. First, they talk about the pyramids, then they talk about how the Kemetic people were fascinated with death and then, they come with the same old thing about them worshipping false gods and goddesses, until Akhenaten (former Amenhetep IV 1348/1346 BC), the so-called father of monotheism, steps on the scene and introduces Atenism.

Akhenaten and Family worshipping Aten

Now, for the longest time, I have tried my best to understand what was the big deal about Akhenaten? In fact, when I was younger, after learning that the 42 Declarations of Maa were the model for the Ten Commandments, I tried to become a follower of Atenism. The big draw was that it was theorized by a lot of western scholars that Akhenaten and Moses was the same person, so I felt like I was really returning to Christianity before it became corrupted by the Council of Nicea.

But after a little more investigation, I learned that Atenism focused only the salvation of Akhenaten and his royal family.  In fact, so-called idols were banned in the Kemetic homes during Akhenaten’s reign, but the people could have representations of Akhenaten’s family worshipping Aten.  Another unmentioned fact is that while Akhenaten was busy obsessing and promoting his religion, his enemies were gathering on the Kemetic horizon to invade.  There were other forms of neglect that were occurring during Akhenaten’s reign, which is the reason his religion declined and the Kemetic empire almost fell. It should be noted that it is never mentioned that Akhenaten’s wife Nefertiti was an Assyrian princess, who made have inspired this decline.

But, if you listen to archeologists, historians and even filmmakers, they will try to convince you that the Kemetic people were so stuck in their “pagan ways” that this was the reason they never fully converted to Atenism.

So, prior to Akhenaten being born, the Kemetic people were stuck in their “pagan ways” and they built the Pyramid of Djoser (2630 BC-2611 BC) and numerous other pyramids, the Kemetic medical papyrus were written 3000 BC-2500 BC, not mention chemistry and all of the other sciences.  Yet, scholars parade over the fact that this one individual promoted an idea of worshipping the Aten, the sun, which almost led to the Kemetic empire being destroyed.

Then, it hit me.

The reason western scholars are so giddy about Akhenaten is because this was the first individual recorded in history to promote the idea of worshipping a deity outside of our being. Notice that I did not say, the first person to create monotheism because the Kemetic religion was always monotheistic. Amun Ra which means the “Hidden Ra” as I mentioned before refers to the Hidden Force of God within our Being. In fact, in ancient times, most of the people around the globe worshipped God within. This all changed after Atenism came into the picture because immediately afterwards the western world religions were created and everyone in the world was seduced into worshipping a cosmic deity outside of the Self.

In other words, Akhenaten’s Aten religion became the model that was used to weaponize religion.This is the reason as soon as Constantine came to power after suppressing all other Christian factions (and other religions by claiming they were evil or against God), they built churches on top of most of sacred spots.  Islam took simply destroyed most of these sacred spots. All three religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) promoted their “peaceful” religions with a holy book in one hand and a sword in the other.

Remember, usually when they tell us something is good in this western society, it is usually bad and vice versa. The world at large is going to hell because of this horrific paradigm shift to worship a deity outside of our being. The only way to escape it, is to follow our Kemetic ancestors’ lead. When the Kemetic people realized that Akhenaten had been overthrown by his Set (the ego self). They erased all memory of him and restored the Amun Ra religion through his son Tutankmen. In other words, the only way to escape this foolishness is by returning to worshipping the Power of God within our being.
