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

12 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

What am I saying?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Maa-The Path of the Feather

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

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

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

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

What Does It Really Mean to be a God on Earth?

21 03 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, the other day I was watching the 1984 comedy Ghostbusters on Netflix, about three parapsychology professors who created a business removing ghosts.  In the climax of the movie, the Ghostbusters are trying to defeat the main antagonist Zuul, who is said to be a demigod of destruction and chaos. Before Zuul shoots lightning out at the Ghostbusters, Zuul asks “Are you a god?”  to which one of the Ghostbusters (Ray) responds “No.” Immediately afterwards, Zuul sends bolts of lightning to the Ghostbusters nearly pushing them off the ledge of the skyscraper.  Thus, prompting Winston to say, “Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god. You say Yes!”

Aside from the fact that it was Winston (of all people) who tells Ray to tell a demigod that he is something that he is not, this made me wonder why didn’t Ray answer that he was a god. Then, it came to me that it was because in Christianity (and Islam) we are taught that whenever we are in a bind. To call out to God for help because we are God’s humble and pitiful creatures that need saving.

Where did this idea that human beings are lowly creatures that need saving come from? Well, remember the biblical story about the Children of Israel and how they fled Egypt. If you grew up in the west, you have read and heard this story numerous times.  We are captivated by the Exodus story because the Children of Israel are depicted as the underdog against the mighty Egyptian army. We are told according to biblical accounts that the Children of Israel cried out to God to save them and the Lord parted the Red Sea, thus allowing the Children of Israel to pass and drowning the Egyptian army.

Now, never mind the fact that the Exodus story is a complete fabrication because there is no historical proof that the Kemetic people had slaves, no archaeological evidence that slave labor existed or was used to build edifices, and there was no massive exodus. In fact, as I mentioned in Why God Does Not Answer Your Prayers, the word pharaoh is not a title given to the Egyptian rulers, but was the name of one of foreign dictators when the Hyskos ruled Kemet. In other words, he was not even Kemetic but Semitic meaning this was a Semitic king who was being harsh to other Semitic people.

But, the real surprise is that according to Jewish writers this is not a true account of how the Exodus story occurred. According to Jewish scholars (particularly Kabbalist) when the Children of Israel stood before the Red Sea with the encroaching army on their heels, they cried out to God to save them, and God replied, “Why are you calling me?”

In other words, God was telling the Children of Israel, “You are made in my image, so use your divine powers to get out of the mess you are in.” And, through the Children of Israel’s power, they parted the Red Sea, not God.

Again, the story is completely fictional and it was created to teach very valuable lessons to young Jewish children who were feeling pitied. But, imagine if you were taught like Jewish children, that God does not save you but God has empowered you to save yourself? Imagine if you were taught that you can do whatever is humanly possible because you were made in the image of God? Imagine if you were taught that by working together with your own people you can create miracles; how different your life would be?  Could you imagine the impact this truth would have upon your life?

Yes, it would have been astronomical and this is why we need to understand that spirituality is psychological.  The main reason many of us are not able to accomplish our goals in life is because we have been taught to believe that our savior exists outside of us.  In other words, we have been taught to be totally dependent upon others outside of us even if they do not share our best interests because we are not worthy.

Therefore, correct this flaw by ridding yourself of this destructive belief about your divinity. Instead of asking for God (and others) to pity you, remind yourself that you are an exceptional human being made in the image of the Divine. In other words, remind yourself that you are Child of Osar, a Hru (hero, Hrw, Heru, Horus). The only one who can save you is you by aligning yourself with your Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris, or Higher Self within).

When you align yourself with your Osar, all types of new ideas, thoughts, miracles, etc. occur because remember, your Osar (Higher Self is your Superconscious). If you will recall, this is the part of our being that is responsible for making magick and miracles occur according to all the great inventors, scientists, mathematicians, etc., which our Kemetic ancestors created an elaborate culture based upon.

Since most of us are creatures of habit, meaning we are strongly influenced by the subconscious (lower self) part of our being, it is best to surround our self with images that remind us of our divinity. This will help us because the problem that most of us have about our divinity is not that do not know we are made in the image of God.  It is that when we get in a pinch, we forget we were created to be gods and goddesses.  When we have obstacles and problems that force us to tap into our divine power, this is the setting sun moment illustrated on the Maa Aankh as the Ra Atum moment and on the Kongo dikenga (or Kongo Cross) as Luvemba.  It indicates that we are at a pivotal moment in our life where the dying of the old and rebirth of the new occurs.

In other words, the only way to be reborn is to face your fears but if you keep crying for someone (or some thing) to save you as Christian storytellers have suggested. We will never be truly saved or delivered.  The only way we can be saved is by always keeping in mind that we are made in the image of the Divine, which means God will always have your back.

What it means to be a god or goddess on earth is someone who has no fear and invokes the power of God within to change situations at will.  They are proactive, not reactive and en route to becoming immortal.

Therefore, instead of crying out to God (and others) to save us, it is best to repeat “There is no one coming to save you Hru because God sent you.”

What if A Black Hole is Within You?

9 03 2018

Did you know that a black hole is is a very mysterious phenomenon that exists in the universe. Although some would think that the term black signifies that it is empty space. The blackness of a black hole refers to the great amount of matter packed into a very small area.

In other words, think of a star like the Sun squeezed into a sphere whose diameter is about the size of Detroit, Michigan. The result is a very powerful gravitational force that not even light can escape.

In fact, a black hole is the most powerful phenomenon that exists in the universe, which leads one to believe that when the ancient philosophers were talking about God, maybe they were speaking about a Black Hole.

When biblical writers wrote that God said, “Let us make man in our own image.” Could it be that the forces of the Black Hole were speaking about creating your Superconscious or Higher Self personified as Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek)?

There is only one way to find out. Tap into your Godliness and discover God for yourself.

 





Why Mimicking Kemet Does Not Work

12 10 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

One day when I had started this whole journey I was called to jury duty. Like most people, I tried my best to get out of it but there was no escape. I had to go, so on Tuesday I got a book and headed downtown to the courthouse. When I arrived, one of the bailiffs told everyone who was waiting that we could have a seat in one or two rooms, while they went through the jury selection process.  I decided to go into the waiting room that did not have a TV, so I could read. When I went inside, there was a guy looked like he was in his mid-30s reading a book.  He looked up and saw me, and we nodded at each other and sat down I opened my book.

About 15 or 30 minutes into my book, the guy next to me noticing that the title of my book had the word Kemetic, asked what I was reading. I told him the title and he flashed the cover of his book, which was about the kabbalah system. From that moment, we started talking about the various esoteric systems, history and spiritual development.

Around noon, the baliff came in and told us that we could take a lunch but not to go too far because they are conducting jury selections. So, me and this brother went to the cafeteria and continued talking about everything we had learned. When we got to the cafeteria, he paid for my lunch so that we could continue talking. Then, as we’re eating he asked me how I was doing on my physical. By physical he meant, my money, my daily exercises, my sleep, etc.

I told him, “Well, I am okay. I can be a little better” and then he said something that changed my life. He told me that he was not 30 but actually 52 years old. He mentioned that the other day, he beat his 16 year old son in a 100 yard dash. Looking at him in total amazement, he explained how he exercised and it was HIIT (High-intensity interval training) before HIIT was ever discovered and mentioned.

Then, he asked me, “Can I be honest with you?” I told him to go ahead, and then he began to tell me some hard truths. He told me that I was working the spiritual thing properly and that my understanding in history was coming along great, but my physical was weak. He said, “If you look at the Ancient Egyptian wall carvings. You will not see overweight or malnourished Ancient Africans. They were fit people…”

Astonished by his acute observation but his wisdom still was flying over my head, I said, “Well I try to exercise and stay on top of things.”

Seeing that I was not totally grasping what he was saying he said, “No little brother. What I am saying is that the reason the Kemetic people were able to accomplish so much is because they did not have to worry about their physical.”

As soon as he finished the sentence, the light bulb came on and I said, “You’re right! The Nile River provided the Kemetic people with everything they needed to nourish themselves, which allowed them to focus on other issues like the mysteries of the universe. “

“That’s right! So, are you doing the same?”

The answer of course was no, and with that he said, “That’s where the problem lies.”

The message was simple, deep and shook me to the core because at the time I was really about mimicking the Kemetic way of life. Technically speaking, the Kemetic people never had a religion because they were attuned with Nature (NTR). They had always believed in the existence of One Supreme Being years before the heretic king Akhenaten was born and promoted his Atenism movement but even then. The people were still attuned with nature and it was this way of life that was spiritual. They learned how to trust their Higher Self, it was the Jews, Christians, Arabs and the Moors, who refused to develop themselves spiritually that gave birth to what we call today religion. Then, shortly after, the bailiff came in and told us that we were free to go because the case had been settled out of court.

I thanked him for dinner and the stimulating conversation. I exchanged phone numbers and I went my separate way. Then, it hit me that he was wearing a reddish (burgundy) sweater, I met him on Tuesday at the courthouse and all of this occurred around 12 Noon.  There were all signs that I was talking to an incarnation of Kemetic warrior spirit Hru Aakhuti. In other words, Hru Aakhuti was monitoring my progress and decided to pay me a visit by giving me some advice on things that I should be doing.

I remember that I was sort of weirded out when I realized this but then I remembered that there were numerous biblical stories of how angels appeared, but I never experienced this until I stopped being religious.

The funny thing is that when I called this guy a few days later, he seriously acted as if he did not know me. However, the message he told me stayed with me to this day. It is because of what he said, I believe that the reason it so difficult to come up with new ideas and solutions. Is because many of us are in survival mode, which the Kemetic people in general never faced. To add to this dilemma, the reason many of us are in survival mode is because of post slavery conditionings. This is the reason I could no longer mimic what the Kemetic people because they don’t know my struggle.

For the record, please understand that I am not religious bashing.  I know there are numerous paths that have led us to be at this point, but we have to see the facts for what they are. We have to accept the fact that none of the religions that we have subscribed to have improve our lot.  They have all further divided us because they are all misinterpretations and/or perversions of our Nilotic ancestors teachings used against us.  This is the reason it is silly to mimic someone else’s interpretation of what our ancestors did.  Our ancestors worked with their ancestors and trusted their intuition, which is what we need to get back to doing.

The good news is that I found solace in knowing that they were near and had not abandoned me. I also found solace in understanding that the importance of meditation, divination and rituals, is to get us to that peaceful mind state that our Nilotic ancestors had that led them not to worry about where their food was going to come from. In other words, the concepts and principles are still applicable and with them we can change our world. What we need to understand is that the last thing we need is another religion to teach us how to be children of God. All we need to do is to listen to our higher Self and reclaim our divinity.

Why We Do It? Is Spiritual Living Really Worth It?

30 09 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Family. Let me get real with you for a minute. Sometimes being spiritually minded is a pain in the a**.

You see, when we were in the church most of us taught to do the right thing because it guarantees you a place in heaven and prevents you from going to hell.  But, now that we have gotten older, more spiritually mature.  And, we realize the Divine does not reward or punish us because Nebercher – the Lord of Everything – our Perfect Creator –  is not biased or prejudice but truly objective and does not directly get involved in human affairs. Many of us lose sight as to why we are practicing being spiritual. In other words, we have no real goal or reason to be spiritually anymore.

What makes spiritual living even more gruesome and wish you had taken the blue pill like Cipher in the film the Matrix, is when you understand.  That part of the human spirit is subconscious, which means it controls all of our actions and behaviors that it indiscriminately learned from others – both right and wrong. Indiscriminately means that like a child, our subconscious solves problems by motivating us to do what Easy and what we feel, not necessarily what is Right. Therefore, most of the problems we have in our life begin in our head because we did not learn the unbiased, impersonal, or Right Way to solve our problems.

It all comes to head if you have a nagging wife that does not understand that the quickest way to drive a man away is to nag at him by focusing on petty faults and errors. Instead of being considerate, appreciative and giving praise about the wonderful qualities that both the husband and wife have.

Or, it all comes to a head when a brooding husband does not understand that psychologically speaking he commits adultery.  If he gives attention to destructive and negative thoughts, which can easily result in sharp and harsh remarks, anger, resentment and hostility. Instead of love, appreciation and honor.

Yes, all of this spiritual stuff comes to head when you are at your workplace and you feel that you are being taken advantage of by a jealous and self-entitled coworker who does more complaining than work.

And, the list of problems goes on…

These are all challenging situations that make us question why are we trying to be spiritual and what’s the purpose of it anyway.

Don’t throw in the towel. The reward or the reason we are here practicing spirituality is for spiritual power. This spiritual power comes from the Amun Ra moment, which is why it is important to ignore the feelings that motivate you to do the Easy thing, and instead do what is Right.

 

No, doing what is Right is not always going to be easy but the more you do it. The stronger you become. This is not pie-in-sky religious babble. This is where the real power comes from, which is the reason “they” do not want you to seriously practice Kemetic spirituality.

It is important to understand that spiritual living is not like religious living. In religious living, when you have a problem or a person annoying the crap out of you. You are taught to pray to have them removed from your life or pray that God can rescue you from this annoying person. But, in spiritual living, you invoke the Power of God so that the annoying individual will change.

Does this mean that you are supposed to take everyone’s crap and just let people walk all over you? The truth is that there is no definite answer to this question. For some people they can be like Dr. Martin L. King Jr. because they have a high tolerance level but for others they have short tolerance level. Before you judge who is right or wrong in regards to their tolerance level, think of how tolerant our Creator is towards us.

In fact, think of how patient, understanding, loving, etc. our Creator is towards us. Do you think that our Perfect Creator doesn’t want to just descend to the planet and smack us and say, “You are GOD! Stop acting like a FOOL!”?

But, why doesn’t our Nebertcher do it? Because how else would we learn.

Why God Does Not Answer Your Prayers

29 09 2017

Hetepu Family (Peace & Blessings)

If you were raised in the West, you probably heard the biblical story about Moses and the Children of Israel. If you have not heard the story, basically according to biblical lore the Egyptians enslaved the children of Israel and forced them to build their temples, statues and pyramids. When Moses saw how his people were being mistreated, he rebelled against the Egyptian authority and later told the Pharaoh that God said “Let my people go.” After the Egyptians suffered several plagues because the Pharaoh refused to obey God/Moses demands. Pharaoh finally conceded and let the children of Israel leave but for some reason had a change of heart. So, while the children of Israel were fleeing and being pursued by the Egyptians, they cried out to God to save them. And, God caused the Red Sea to part so that the children of Israel could pass but when the encroaching Egyptian army neared. God allowed the Red Sea to swallow them, thus killing the Egyptian army.

Now, for the record, please note that I stated Egyptian and not Kemetic because numerous sources have proven that this story was a complete fabrication. The Kemetic society was the most advanced civilization in the ancient world and the most detailed oriented as well, recording every historical event that affected their society. But, there are no records of the Kemetic people enslaving another group of people to build their society, freeing thousands of people or their military being swallowed by the Red Sea.

Also, unbeknownst to most, according to an article posted on JNS.org, Mustafa Waziri, director-general of Luxor’s Antiquities, said in an interview with Egyptian daily newspaper Al-Youm Al-Sabih, “King Pharaoh who ruled Egypt during the epoch of our prophet Moses was not one of the kings who reigned in ancient Egypt, as we tend to believe. He belonged to the Beduin Jabarin dynasty, which is called ‘Hyksos,’” The Hyskos were a Semitic culture that ruled Kemet for about 100 or so years before they were ousted by the indigenous Kemetians. The interesting thing about the article is that the dictator’s name was Pharaoh, it was not the title given to the Egyptian rulers.  It should also be noted that the Hyskos were followers of Set (Baal).

Statue of Hyskos or Shepherd Kings

That being said, returning back to this biblical story, the lesson many of us learned in the West is that if we give our cares and concerns to God as the children of Israel had done.  That God will save us and part whatever obstacles in our path as he had done to the Red Sea for the fleeing children of Israel.

However, this is not what is taught in the Jewish mysticism schools. According to Jewish mystics, when the children of Israel cried out to God to save them. The Great God responded back, “Why are you calling me?”

The Great God posed the question to the children of Israel because he was reminding them that they were made in the image of God and therefore have the power to save themselves.

Think about that for a moment.

Generations upon generations of people have been taught to beg and plead for God to save themselves.  When the true interpretation of the story taught by Jewish people is that God wants us to save ourselves by tapping into our divine being. Can you understand the psychological ramifications that this misinterpretation has caused? For some of you I know this is a shock because we have been told this story for most of our childhood but you can look it up yourself. The true interpretation of this story that God basically told the children of Israel to save themselves.

It should now become apparent that the reason our situation is getting worse is because God is not answering his calls. God has left the building because God did not create us so that we can call upon him for everything that goes wrong in our life. No one wants to be called upon just in the time of need, not even God. God did not create us so that God can be our slave. God or the Divine created us so that we could one day grow up from being children of God and become adults of God or of the Divine…gods and goddesses.

The Divine created with an infinite creative spirit. The Divine is waiting for us all to embrace our divinity and stop worrying about our status quo. Until that time, situations will to get worse because it is only when we are in dire needs and faced with closed doors that miracles occur proving that we are divine beings.

So the bad news is that is that if you do not begin to learn how to tap into your divinity, situations are going to become increasingly worse.  However, the good news is that if you are feeling anxious, fearful, worried, etc., this is your Set masquerading as your ego and by ignoring these emotions, we take power from Set and empower our Higher Self or Osar.

It is important to understand that the true lesson of the biblical story is that the children of Israel saved themselves. The story was never meant to be taken literal but intended to indicate that when we invoke the power of the Divine within us, instead of giving into the fear of the ego. We can change any physical event, no matter the obstacle that lie ahead. Remember, the Divine created us to be the Hru of our own story, not follow the religion of others.

Five Reasons You Should Have a Het (Spiritual House) for Your Spirits

29 09 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, the other day I was looking at my het (spiritual house/altar) and just thinking about how much it has grown from a simple cloth on a wooden box to a two-story altar with a plethora of empowering images. As I gazed upon my het, I am reminded of how much I have grown from mimicking the altars of others out-of-ignorance, to being able to construct a het anywhere by drawing a gateway with a piece of chalk on the ground as my ancestors have done before me.

Kongo Cross used for Ventilation during Underground Railroad

I am amazed at how much I have grown from seeing ordinary objects with concrete images to seeing how anywhere that lines meet form a maa aankh and can become a sacred space.  I stare in awe as I gape upon the numerous images and glasses of libations, which reminds me of the sense of community that the Kemetic people used to defeat the shemsu Set (followers of Set). I see that for those of us on this shamanic path that our het is very important for five reasons and they are:

  1. Reminds You That You Are a God/Goddess. Western religions separate human beings from God and always depict divinities such as angels, saints, martyrs, etc. as towering and tyrannical entities similar to the Greek gods. In Kemetic shamanism we are reminded that the so-called gods and goddesses were once people too. When their images are placed on the het at eye level or on the ground, we are reminded that our Spirits are not above us, and we are not above them.  But that they need us just as much as we need them, just like Osar needed Hru and vice versa. A het is built on the floor to remind ourselves and our Spirits that they are warriors.  A het is built at eye level to remind us and the Spirits that we are here to help one another. Therefore, the het is visual reminder of the partnership that must be created between us and our Spirits in order to achieve our destiny.

Npu (Anubis) – The Opener of the Way

  1. Reminds You That You Are Responsible for Your Life. While it may be a great relief to put all of our cares and worries in the lap of some cosmic deity. It does not erase the why we are here, which is the reason if we continue to struggle with certain issues and problems throughout our life. It is because this problem is tied to your destiny, which means you incarnated to this planet to learn how to overcome that issue. A het reminds you of your purpose and helps you to gather the spiritual strength to achieve your divine purpose, by reminding you of the life of those who came before you.
  1. Helps You to Elevate Your Thoughts. Believe it or not our Spirits know that life on earth is hard because our sahu (physical-body consciousness) has been created to help us to physically survive. Consequently, everything that we do in nature supports our lower self, which means we are naturally selfish and egotistical beings. It is because human beings have an Ab soul that we can choose to rise above our animalistic or lower nature to access our divine nature or BA (Higher Self). The problem is that we have to be constantly reminded of our divine nature because all it takes is for one thing such as someone cutting us off in traffic, flipping us the bird, etc. And, BAM! We forget that we are gods and goddesses having a human experience and revert to our lower self. The het helps us to remember that we are divine beings by allowing our Spirits to interact in our daily life. So, when someone cuts off in traffic, before reacting we notice that the car is red and black, hence Npu or when someone flips us the bird. We see signs of Setian influence all around that person and so on. In other words, the het helps us to see life from a cosmic perspective.
  1. Provide Space to Practice Your Magick. I hear people saying all the time, “Wo/Man were made in the likeness of God” which means that we are supposed to be gods and goddesses too, but when it comes to people demonstrating their godliness. All they do is beg God to save them or save someone else. The Christian speaker Jesus says that all of these things that he does, we will be able to do the same and more through the Father (the Christian code for the BA or Higher Self). This means that when we connect to our BA, we all have the power to bless, heal, etc. as Jesus has done. The het provides the space for us to practice our magick and realize our divine potential. It allows you to contribute to creation instead of being a pawn of nature.
  1. Frees You From Mental Slavery. The Western world was created to gratify our animalistic or lower self. It thrives on the survival of the fittest model, which requires that humanity like animals connive, enslave, steal and kill others to survive. Every aspect of Western society from their religion to politics, to their education to medicine, it is all driven by the same theme, which involves exploiting and subjugating others. This is why the Western society is flirting with disaster because it does not know how to teach its citizens how to get solutions from the BA (Higher Self). Even after the greatest Western minds like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and many others have attested to the power of this Higher Intelligence, Westerners refuse to explore and teach this truth, thus further encouraging its members of society to invest in their lower nature and ultimate demise.
    The het gives us an escape by helping us to communicate with souls of the past, thereby exploring new ways of how to solve old problems.

There are other reasons why the het is a very powerful spiritual tool and when you understand its importance.  It will become clear that the reason Westerners demonized our spiritual practices and destroyed our altars, shrines and collected our sacred objects, which they store in their museums, is because they could not reproduce the same results.  So instead, Westerners chose to eradicate free thought but thankfully the souls of the righteous do not die and our Spirits are always near. If you are sitting on the fence as to building a het for your Spirits, I hope this article will help you to build your Spirits a home.
