How to Save Yourself through the Power of Knowledge of Self (K.O.S.)

22 05 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I just finished a disturbing conversation with someone whom I thought was aware. As I listened to this individual “talk-the-talk,” you know that “Hotep. I am Woke. We got to do this for babies. I am not African American I am Afrakan, etc.”   I began to see through this individual’s armor.  Spirit began revealing to me that this individual ain’t about nothing but is caught up in the fad of being conscious. So, I let this individual just babble because they were somewhat entertaining but when the moment came, I asked, “So you work with your ancestors?”

Their response was, “Oh yeah! The ancestors are with me. They are going to help us win against the MAN.”

“No. Do you have an ancestor shrine and work with your ancestors?” I asked.

“Nah Brother, that’s some ole primitive Afrikan stuff. I don’t mess with that because it doesn’t work. It is all superstitious anyway.”

Another example of someone playing conscious or what I call conplay. You know it is like cosplay but they are playing to be conscious.

From the film I’m Going to Get You Sucka!

I don’t know where or how the idea came about that consciousness or “woke” (as people like to call it) refers to how many dashikis you adorn, how natural your hair is, your diet, etc.  Or, for that matter, how many books you have read. I mean if you have read a lot of books, all this means is that and I quote, “YOU READ A LOT OF BOOKS.”

I used to be the same way.  I used to step into a cipher and spit all of this information about all the books I had read but after the cipher ended. I was still financially broke. At the time I was still lonely. I was not successful because I was torn between pursuing a college degree/career/working for the man and self-employment as a starving artist selling artwork, tee-shirts and incense.  But, I claimed to be “conscious” and considered others who had stopped eating pork or became a vegetarian/vegan and knew about history “conscious” as well. But, I was not conscious and these individuals I rolled with were not conscious either. We were all informed meaning we read a lot of books and therefore, had a lot of information.

We are told that conscious means to be “aware” or “awake” from a metaphorical sleep. This means that if someone is sleep they are walking around in a daze as if they are on autopilot. For instance, my morning routine is to wake up, go to the restroom, check the house, make breakfast, and get things ready for my wife to help my wife so that when she awakes she can focus only on the baby. I wake up every morning and follow this same routine because this is my program and it works for me. I mean even when I do not have to go to work, I get up around the same time and do this same routine. So, technically you can say that my morning routine is on autopilot. If something happens that throws me off of my program like I wake up late or something, then my morning routine will be out of whack and I will seek to get back on my routine. This is what it means to be sleep. Therefore, consciousness means that you are aware of the routine you are following.

People who smoke cigarettes are under the influence of a subconscious behavior. When they feel stressed, are in a social setting, etc. they go on autopilot and reach for a cigarette despite them knowing the ill effects of this habit.  I don’t smoke cigarettes because I am conscious or “aware” of the effect it has upon by physical body, so I have chosen not to engage in this subconscious behavior. You see, most people who are sleep just do things out of habit based upon their emotions. Conscious means that you are able to step away from a situation and make a rational decision despite how you feel subconsciously. This is the reason people who smoke cigarettes out of habit are said to be “sleep” while those who do not are “conscious.”

In short, Consciousness is not about making you feel good.  Being informed is.

So, there are some things that we are all conscious about and some things we are not. When you are “conscious”, the metaphorical light comes on and it does not go out. It stays with you because this is the Left Eye of Ra.

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

A lot of times, you cannot even explain in words the Aha or Eureka moment because it is ethereal and corresponds to the Light of Amun Ra.

A lot of people are confusing informed with consciousness. Informed refers to the Light of Ra or the left Eye of Ra. Consciousness is the Light of Amun Ra or the Right Eye of Ra.

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

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

Understand the difference?

Another difference between the Light of Ra (Right Eye of Ra or being informed) and the Light of Amun Ra (Left Eye of Ra or being Conscious) is that the former is aggressive, left-brained, argumentative, competitive, etc. and the latter is passive, right-brained, cooperative, etc. We see this difference played out in western society all the time. For instance, there are a lot of people who are informed about Christianity, Judaism and Islam. You never hear a lot of Jews, Christians or Muslims say, “I know God” because their religion is not based upon knowing and realization. It is based upon beliefs, which can change every time there is new experience. Most people who are informed about these religions because they see the inaccuracies within the stories.  They have been taught as children to interpret the myths of their religion literally but when they came of age they began asking, “How did Adam and Eve populate the entire planet?” “How did Noah put all of the animals in the world on one boat?”

They are informed about these religions but they are not conscious, which is the reason they leave the temple, the church or the mosque and get into another dogmatic religion from Africa, China or India.  They follow these traditions out of fear that if they break some taboo, that some deity, ancestors or karma is going to punish them. If they were Conscious they would understand that religion is a tool for social control, which is the reason we were all taught to interpret the myths literally so that we develop ethics and morals.  If they were Conscious they would also understand that the whole idea of praying to something outside of you to empower or save you is that basis of all religious mindset. The whole idea that God or some god, spirit or karma is going to get you is all part of social control.  I cannot tell you how many people I have met tell me that they are going to do or not do something because of karma…But You’re a God/Goddess living in Fear? (By the way, the reason Europeans and Arabs could easily come into Africa and indoctrinate us with their religion was because our mind was primed for religious instructions. The Europeans and Arabs simply took the name of our god and demonized it by claiming that it was evil to go within and professing that our salvation came from praying to their deity. That’s the difference between being Conscious and being Informed.)

This same mindset can be found when it comes to diet and health.  Most people are informed about dietary ills but they are not Conscious, which is the reason they have turned their dietary lifestyle into a religion by only dealing with people who eat the same way they consume food. If an individual comes into these so-called “health conscious” people sphere with some type of infirmity these so-called “health conscious” people look down on them. Yes, suddenly “health conscious” has become a religion and you hear these people all the time preaching against soul food, but whenever they can’t get to their tofu or some other soybean product, they will reach for potato chips and chocolate. Yet, they are “health conscious.” No. They are informed.

I know about all of this because I did it. I used to be informed about my history, my religion, my health, etc., which led me (like many people today) to mimicking others – particularly my perception of what or how I thought the Kemetic people lived. When I became conscious about certain subjects I stopped reading so many books and began to intuit (channel) certain knowledge. When I say an ancestor told me something, I know that I did not get the information based upon my personal experience, which meant it had to have come them because their blood and consciousness survives through me.

Some people asked me where do I get my information from so, that they can read and study the same thing. I list all the books that I have read and inspired me but tell them a lot of what I know is because my spirits told me so. Some of these people interpret my response as me not wanting to reveal my sources but others regard it is primitive foolishness because they just don’t want to do the work. They are quite happy sitting on their backsides talking about the culture, the ancestors, discussing metaphysics and arguing with some other individual who claims to be conscious. When technically all they are doing is arguing over a difference of opinion based upon the information they read.

When an individual has true knowledge of self or is conscious they come together with like minds because they see the similarities in various systems. For instance, I do not have to practice Taoism to get along with someone who professes they are Taoist. In facts, I can read certain parts of the bible and use it for liberation because I am not swayed by the beliefs.

Being Informed only boosts the ego who is symbolized as Set, while being Conscious boosts your Higher Self.

In other words, when you are conscious you do not come together on superficialities such as sharing the same beliefs and ideas. This is the same thing that Jews, Christians and Muslims do among themselves and each other. They argue about how the other’s interpretation of their religious myth is interpreted incorrectly.  This is the same thing that so-called people do.  In fact, the reason these “conscious people” on the Internet are always beefing with each other is because they all have difference in opinions. They do not understand we are all dynamic individuals and we are supposed to have different opinions because we each have different experiences and come from different backgrounds. We had to have different experiences to accomplish our destinies. For instance, I had to be born into a Christian household where my father is a preacher, so that I could understand how religion hoodwinked us. That’s my maa (way) and everything I deal with has helped me to get on this road. So, I would not dare devalue someone who didn’t have the same upbringing and therefore do not have the same perspective. That’s not their maa. Their maa is different from mine but if they are conscious we should be able to respect one another.

For instance, when I hear people say that the Kemetic people were black and brown Africans because they named themselves after the black fertile soil.  I understand that this individual is just scratching the surface of spirituality. This is something they read or heard making them informed but it is not what they know. I know that the Kemeitc people named themselves after the mysterious blackness of the universe. That is not something I read. I mysteriously came into that knowing. I have experimented and test it out by slowly delving into the darkness where our Ancestors and Spirits reside. When I listen to other people who have had similar experiences, even though they may not have had the same experience or explain their experience from a different perspective. I understand them because it is not their beliefs, ideas, opinions or information that unites us but their knowledge of self. Basically, their interpretation is how their mind works.

Knowledge of Self means knowing your Self or how your minds work, that is the Higher, Middle and lower mind. This is what the Kemetic people excelled in and the reason they accomplished so much is because they understood the power of the mind. In fact, their technology is what we call spirituality, which is what people call today magic. There are plenty of systems that exist but you must figure out which system works best for you and use it to make your own. So, to be conscious means to know how to influence your world spiritually.

That being said, leave these people alone who want to sit around arguing about how conscious they are. They are only stroking their ego and the ego remember is our Set. Instead of following these people, learn how to go within and master your mind. That’s why you are here.

How to Regularly Work With Your Ancestors & Spirit Guides (Aakhu)?

5 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know what?  When you embark upon a spiritual path sometimes you need a reminder of why you perform certain practices because we are living in peril times that encourage us to give into our ego, our lower self, or Set. Ancestor veneration reminds us that we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us and that whenever we cannot find a solution to our problem from the available physical resources.  We need to go within.

So, I was talking to one of my former math students who is from Vietnam about some of the food traditions they have in their country. They were telling me how they immigrated to the United States with their parents when they were three years old and, how they made it a custom to visit their home country every two years. As we talked, they told me how their food was so different from the American diet because they prepare fresh vegetables every day to eat alongside their meats, rice and/or noodles. As they were telling me this, it seemed to have slipped but they mentioned how they offer fruit and incense to their ancestors.

Not skipping a beat to make them feel comfortable talking to me about this spiritual practice, I remarked, “Yes, I offer a candle, incense and food to my ancestors as well.”

Feeling somewhat at ease, they continued talking and began asking them more questions about how they honor their ancestors like how many days during the week do they perform this rite and what types of food are offered.  They told me that usually they simply offer a mango, which is different from the oranges that are offered by many Chinese practitioners.

Then, I asked “Do you burn money for your ancestors?” To which they replied they do but usually on special occasions.

For the most part, all they could tell me was that everything that they are doing usually tradition.  We talked for a little bit more and then parted ways because we both had separate engagements, but it got me thinking…

I don’t recall seeing a lot of Asian people living in poverty. Now, I am not saying that there are not any financially poor Asians living in the United States. I am just saying that I have not seen many and maybe it is because they regularly honor their ancestors.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The reason my former student and I could have such a pleasant conversation about the ancestors was because as far as I could tell. The Asian understanding of the afterlife is similar to the thoughts of the Maa Aankh, which is that the dead (in KAMTA) and the living (TASETT) are dependent upon one another. The relationship between the living and dead is symbolized in the Story of Osar as Hru need for Osar in order to defeat Set.  Coincidentally, this is the basis of Kemetic Spirituality

From what I could assess from my student is that by specifically calling their ancestor by name and stating that they are giving them an offering of food, drink, money, gifts, etc., so that they can use in their realm. The hope (belief) was that the ancestor would give them the things they need in order to live in the physical world.

Remember, there is no right or wrong way to make an offering to your aakhu (ancestors) but when you make an offering to your aakhu. You are in essence giving them energy, which is basically taking something from the physical world and giving it to the spiritual world. For instance, if you wanted to offer a $5 bill, then once you put that money on the altar, it can no longer be used to buy physical things because that money belongs to the dead.  The same effect can be achieved by burning Spirit Money or Heaven Notes.

Understand, this is not say that by honoring one’s ancestors you will not experience financial hardships.  Also, do not err in thinking that all you have to do is honor your aakhu and blessings will fall out of the sky.  This is a spiritual practice that will help you to remember that everything that physically exists comes from an invisible spiritual source.  By giving your anxieties, worries and fears to your ancestors, you will find most of your problems will easily resolve themselves when this ritual is done regularly.

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.

 





KAMTA: Recreating the Real Black Church

24 01 2018
Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.
I have had some people ask how I discovered Kamta and was able to make all the connections. Well, all I can say is that it was because of my ancestors. I like a lot of people had read and studied Kemetic history, lore and spirituality for some years but I was not able to make any headway. Then, things changed when I began working with my ancestors and asking them to guide me in my understanding (See: How to Distinguish between the Higher Self, Ancestors, Spirit Guides and lower self).
What they showed me was that when the first Africans were brought to North America, they were taken from the Kongo-Angolan region and forced to work as indentured servants.  Since the Kongo ruler had voluntarily converted to Christianity prior to the advent of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, most of the people taken from the Kongo-Angolan region were either Christian or at least familiar with the Christian faith and already had a working syncretism with their indigenous beliefs in place. Consequently, because these Africans had Africanized Christianity, it is believed by some scholars that the Portuguese and Spaniards called these Africans the pejorative term Judio (pronounced hoo-dee-oh) which is Spanish for Jewish referring to the Jews who continued to practice the Old Religion (Judaism) even after learning about Jesus Christ. The term judio was later corrupted in the English language and became what we call hoodoo.
Although there are some authors who attempt to trace the term hoodoo to an African source, it should be noted that most African Americans never used the term to refer to their spiritual practice because in the African mindset.  Hoodoo was considered a form of witchcraft, which was a forbidden practice. The term is totally a European creation that was used to describe early African American spirituality and in particular the Black Church.

The Kongo Cross

So, when the descendants from the Kongo-Angolan region arrived in North America they were stripped of all of their possessions.  However, they managed to bring with them their dikenga commonly called today the Kongo Cross, which is a unique Kongo cosmogram that mapped the universe. Although these early Africans in North America were not able to syncretize their beliefs and practices under the guise of the Catholic saints as their kinfolk had done in Brazil, Cuba, Haiti and other parts of South America. Through the Kongo Cosmogram or Kongo Cross, our early ancestors managed to use the Kongo cosmogram to syncretize their beliefs with the Protestant Christian faith in order to create their own religion.
They were able to accomplish this feat because the Kongo cosmogram like most medicine wheels could be interpreted in numerous ways depending upon perspective. For instance, the basic understanding of the dikenga or Kongo Cross is that our universe is composed of two worlds – the land of the living (above) and the land of the dead (below). When human beings incarnate to the land of the living, his or her soul mimics the four movements of the sun – Kala (Sunrise/Birth), Tukala (Midday/Life), Luvemba (Sunset/Death) and Musoni (Midnight/Rebirth).  However, if an individual was experiencing a lot of bad luck, failing health, grave misfortunes, etc., it was understood that the individual’s sun is setting or dying due to some impurity (or sin). In this case, it was necessary for the individual to travel to the land of the dead so that their ancestors could purify them and they could be reborn.
Kongo Cosmogram

Basic Kongo Cosmogram

Rebirth consisted of going to the land of the dead because the land of the dead called mpemba or the “land of whiteness” and purity was seen as a mysterious realm where one found great rewards. Allegorically the land of the dead or mpemba was believed to exist underground but could also be found where the land of the living and the land of the dead met like the plantation and the hush harbors, a city and the forest, a town and the wilderness, a municipal and cemetery, land and a body of water, etc.
Now, what’s unknown to most is that for a long period of time, the original Black Church did not meet in buildings. No, quite the contrary. Our ancestors met in brooks, groves, hush harbors, etc. because slave owners, fearing that early African Americans were plotting a revolt, prohibited them from congregating. When the Second Great Awakening occurred in North America, that’s when a large number of early African Americans willingly converted to Christianity particularly the Baptist and Methodist denominations. Although, most historians are uncertain as to why this massive conversion took place, a thorough analysis of the Old Kongo thinking reveals that it was most likely because full body baptism (submersion into a body of water) was most likely interpreted as the passing into the land of mpemba. Remnants of our Old Kongo belief can still be found in the church today, which is the reason before adherents are baptized.  They are instructed to wear white robes or garments. Another example of this philosophical thinking can be seen in the fact that most elders within the church wear white, and so on, which corresponds to the Luvemba moment – the setting sun – also the color white.
But due to charlatans within our community, the commercialization and exploitation of African American spirituality by outsiders, the Black Church has become a hollow institutions that focused solely on religious entertainment. The loss of African philosophy and theology, combined with the passing of the elders unable to pass their spiritual knowledge to subsequent generations, has resulted in the steady decline of the Black Church.
It was my ancestors that helped me to see that the people of the Kongo-Angolan region were part of the Bantu or Ba-Ntu tribal group, which archeologists and historians have found, once upon a time lived and dwelled along the Nile River. Because as the saying goes: there is nothing new under the sun. The remnants of the Kongo Cross in North America could be syncretized with the Kemetic Amun Ra system to create the maa aankh cosmogram.
For the record, I had read the Story of Ra and Oset (Isis) numerous times.  In fact, I read it so many times that when I saw or heard any mention of it.  I just glossed over it because I did not seen any importance of it. But, it was my ancestors that led me to understand that Ra’s “Secret/Hidden” name was Amun (the Hidden) Ra.  They later showed me how Amun Ra corresponds to the Moon, which was given greater significance then the Sun. It was through this understanding that led me to discover the Maa Aankh.
The basis of the Maa Aankh cosmogram is that the world is composed of two lands called above TASETT (the Red Lands), which is ruled by Set, and KAMTA (the Black Lands), which is ruled by Osar – the owner of the white hedjet crown.  When a human being incarnates to the land of the living or the harsh Red Lands, we must follow the path of Ra, which was discovered by Oset – KhepeRA (Kala in KiKongo/Sunrise/Birth), RA (Tukala in KiKongo/Midday/Life), RA Atum (Luvemba in KiKongo/Sunset/Death) and Amun RA (Musoni in KiKongo/Midnight/Rebirth).

                                   Maa Aankh Cosmogram

Similar to the Kongo land of the dead or mpemba (land of whiteness/purity), KAMTA is called the Black Lands because of the dark fertile soil due to the inundation of the Nile River, but it is an allusion to the mysterious spiritual realm of the ancestors.  Hence, the reason the Kemetians referred to the southern region as the land of their ancestors and symbolized this region by the white Hedjet crown and the Kemetic ancestor Osar.
The purpose of sharing this with you is because many of us (myself included) have been convinced that we were stripped of our culture and it is just not true. The whole purpose of telling us this is so that we never return back to our cultural way of thinking. There are all sorts of examples I could list to prove that we did not lose our culture. We lost the philosophy and theology behind our culture, which is the reason many talk about the ancestors but are afraid to work with them.
KAMTA is the recreation of the brooks, groves, hush harbors, the forest, the wilderness, the cemetery, the underground, the lake, the sea and anywhere there is a mysterious reward including the deep recesses of the mind. This is where all of our answers and solutions come from, and why our ancestors met there to plot their revolts.  So, don’t be afraid of the dark because this is where our ancestors reside.
Hope this helps.

Why Every Spiritual Minded Individual Should Have an Oracle

31 12 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, one day I was watching a documentary I think about the San people and how for centuries, they managed to retain their culture even in these modern times.  When the American visitor asked the San elder about their culture and lifestyle. The elder explain how they got their food from the land and asked the American visitor if he wanted to accompany men on a hunt. To which the visitor acknowledged and said he would.

Centuries of wisdom had taught the San men to walk in a single line as to not confuse their foot tracks. It also taught them study their surroundings, observe the animal tracks left in the arid land, the animal droppings and most importantly how to get water from the dry vegetation if they were dehydrated. Then, after days of hunting and unable to find a prey so that they could bring it back and feed their village. One of the men took out a pouch revealing an oracle. With his oracle in hand, the man asked his ancestors to give them direction so that they could successfully find an animal to feed their people. Then, the oracle was thrown and after giving praise the man gathered the pieces and they proceeded in another direction. Shortly after, they spotted their prey, which they quietly stalked and gently killed to feed their village, the American visitor and themselves.

In typical westernized fashion, the show continued talking about how the San people lived their lives as such for centuries. It completely glossed over the fact that if the one man had not used an oracle, the men’s hunt would have been unsuccessful. The divination practice was glossed over because in western thinking, divination does not exist due to the fact that it cannot be explained scientifically. (Divination can be explained, but more on that later).

The reason most westerners do not understand divination tools is because of charlatans, parlor trick readers (such as the ones shown in the TV series “Shut Eye”), television psychics, etc.  This combined with overzealous preachers with poor historical and theological skills, who have put the ‘fear of God’ in the public by claiming that oracles are evil or the works of the devil. Most people are convinced that oracles are objects that foretell the future.  In truth, oracles do not predict the future, they simply inform you based upon present position, past anxieties and apprehensions, the decision you will most likely make. They give you an objective response regardless if you want to hear the truth or not.  The apostle Paul witnessed this first hand.  Although, fundamentalist Christians are quick to point out that Paul exorcised a “demonic spirit” out of a slave girl. What they fail to mention is that the reason Paul “exorcised” the slave girl was because she possessed an oracular spirit who was annoying Paul by proclaiming truth about him (Acts 16:18).

Before proceeding, it should be noted that every culture has used oracles to speak with God within but fundamentalist Christians are quick to argue against it by reciting Leviticus 19:26, which states “Do not go to mediums or consult fortune-tellers.” However, these fundamentalists refuse to mention that the Great Jehovah allowed certain divination practices such as arrow sortilege that was randomly shaken from a case; the careful study of a sacrificed animal’s liver; prophetic dreams; the use of teraphims, the Urim and Thummim lots, which was not a casting of votes as fundamentalists proclaim.   It should also be noted that these oracles were used in both the Old and New Testaments, even after the death of the Christian savior. The reason the Christian God allowed the use of oracles in the bible is because they are tools to help you to communicate with the Divine within.

For instance, if there was a supervisory opening at your job and you were qualified for the position, but might require you working late hours, working on the weekends (especially Sunday) and worst yet, you will have to supervise your office pals, which means no more goofing around as before. The oracle is going to tell you that a position has opened up and you are qualified to do it but are you emotionally and mentally mature to handle such responsibility? Do you have the discipline to do what is right versus what is easy?

Every oracle, no matter if it is a simple tool like the flip of a coin, game dice to playing cards, simply. All oracles do basically the same thing and the only difference between them is the complexity and detailed insight they give. For instance, a deck of cards is more complex and efficient then a 25 cent quarter piece because the deck of cards has more symbols (4 suits x 13 cards = 52 not including the Wilds) than the heads and tails of the quarter.

For the record, I am against seeing mediums and consulting with fortune-tellers too because you do not know if they are being genuine.  In fact, the real reason westerners are often taken advantage by charlatans, parlor trick readers, television psychics, overzealous preachers and we can also include in this list dishonest leaders, televangelists, professionals (dietitians, doctors, scientists, etc.), politicians, etc. is because western culture is based upon a monetary system. This means that we trust only those who have purchased their credential over our own intuition. As a result, we look to everyone outside of our self to tell us what the best thing to do for our life is, instead of intuiting what is best for ourselves.

Why do we do this? Because most of us do not understand that the Divine is within. We do not understand that everything that exists in the Universe can be found within our being. In short, most of us do not know when God (or our ancestors, spirit guides, angels, etc.) is talking. So, when we receive hunches from our Higher Self we are not sure if it is us talking or what.  When we receive symbolic instructions from our ancestors in our dreams. We ask other people to interpret them instead of learning how to interpret our dreams ourselves.  We want the preacher man to tell us how to live because we respect them as being the divine mouths for God, instead of seeking the kingdom of God from within.  Simply put, we are programmed to go without instead of going within.  Therefore, if you are tired of being taken advantage of and placed in a vulnerable position, consider learning and using an oracle.

Now before I proceed, understand that I am not saying that there aren’t any good leaders, clergymen, professionals (dietitians, doctors, scientists, etc.), politicians, etc. but in a money based economy that is fueled by competition. Where it is impossible to know if an individual is being honest, genuine or just greedy and selfish.  The oracles can help.

Oracles can help you discern if someone is being honest or not. They can also help you to see another’s intentions but most importantly.  Oracles can help you to help you overcome your own shortcomings because the reason most of us cannot succeed or evolve to the next level is because we self-sabotage our progress. We could be working on a project and everything is going well but then our anxieties, fear of the unknown, fear of failure, etc. kicks in and the next thing you know…KAPUT!

Oracles can be used in other situations as well. For instance, everything in your life is going well and you meet your ideal mate whom you decide to marry. Then several years later, your spouse becomes gravely ill, lose their high paying job due to accident, or “suddenly” out of the blue tells you that they are not happy. In the Maa: A Guide to the Kamitic Way for Personal Transformation, where I briefly speak about an oracle I am fond of.  There is a listing of the Seven Codes of Maa, which are very similar to the Seven Universal Laws.  There we find that Code 6: Maa is Order and Not Coincidence, which means basically that accidents and other events do not “suddenly” happens. It only appears that these events and incidents suddenly occur because we cannot see with our naked eyes the invisible forces leading to event but, oracles can see and help you to see the whole universal picture.

When you use an oracle, essentially what you are doing is taking the guess work out of the equation and handing the issue you are dealing with over to your BA and sahu.  In a nutshell when you do a reading your sahu brings all of your stored memories to the table, which includes your wants, desires, anxieties, fears, past experiences, etc.  And, your BA brings all of your potential to the table. Your BA says, “You are not healthy, wealthy, successful, etc. now but other people with similar circumstances are so your dream is not impossible. “ Oracles give you the straight objective truth.

For instance, I remember hearing of a lady who went to a diviner to help her find a companion. According to the diviner, this lady was tired of being alone and really wanted a man but could not figure out why she was not able to attract a decent suitor. When the oracle was casted it revealed that all the lady did was go to work and return home. This was her daily routine and the oracle revealed that she was not going to find anyone by following the same routine. She had to do something different if she wanted different results in her life.

There are many types of oracles such as dreams, scrying, tea leaves reading, and bibliomancy just to name a few. It does not matter which oracle you choose to use but when you become proficient in the use of it. You will receive messages and omens using this system. For instance, the other day I was outside dumping the garbage and out of nowhere a hawk appeared and captured a little rodent. I knew right then and there, that was Hru speaking to me because Hru uses hawk totems.

HRU (Heru, Horus)

Note that oracles do not tell you what to do. They simply give you a snapshot of what will happen based upon the present situation and if you make a certain decision.  Therefore, to change the predicted outcome revealed by an oracle, simply change your decision.

Also, it is ideal that you get a reading, you should do so for major problems.  Although, you are not going to be punished for asking for insight on buying a new outfit, a pair of shoes, etc. It is considered insulting to ask for such trivial matters. Instead, ask for insight regarding serious situations such as job loss, illness, family issues, etc.

So, as you can see, the only real reason why people discourage you from using oracles is because they want to continue taking advantage of you.  This is why in this day and age, every spiritual minded individual should have at least one oracle to help them to develop their intuition because we are really going to need to use them in this upcoming year, to direct the course of events for our people.

Hope that helps.

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.

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.

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.

  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.
