How to Embrace Your Divinity

You know, it is said according to Genesis 1:26 that man and woman are made in the image of God, but most ministers and theologians shy away from this scripture because they don’t have any practical understanding of what it means. Many are so riddled by superstition that they are afraid to even entertain the thought of what this scripture means. Well, just for the record, I use to live in fear. Part of the reason why is because I have a scientific mind (subconscious). I remember praying when I was a kid and having a number of my prayers go unanswered, so this angered me and made me always seek a logical explanation. Yes, I was a borderline atheist that sat on the fence out of fear, but after allowing my fears to dictate how I would live my life.  I decided to cast my fears aside and embrace my divinity.

When I did, what I learned was that to be made in the image of God means that we are a microcosm of a Macrocosm. In other words, we are a micro-universe and everything that can be found in the universe exists within us on a very minute scale. Just like our universe revolves around a sun, there is within our being a miniature sun that our being centers around as well. Just like our universe is composed of two realities – a physical and a spiritual reality.  Within our being there is a physical and spiritual reality as well, which means just like there are hidden forces that exist and causes a seed in soil to take sprout, take form and become a tree. There is hidden within our being the same forces that exist, which can cause an idea or thought to sprout and physically manifest itself in our life. Why do these forces exist within our being as such and work this way?

 sprout

It is because we are a part of nature, and not above it. By the way, the word Nature by the way in Latin is natura, which is derived from the Kamitic word netcher, meaning god or better yet, god-force energy.

When I first began learning about my divinity I realized that I didn’t see this at first because I saw God as being some towering giant that stood a million miles above the earth. This made me feel as if I wasn’t worthy for God’s grace as he looked down upon me from the heavens (ceiling), but as soon as I began to see that the God force was within me, it made sense why some affirmations worked and some didn’t work. That’s right, I had a very unhealthy idea about God.

Have Mercy Upon Me

For instance, if I told myself that I was a healthy. Well, if I didn’t believe that I was healthy, then the affirmation would not work because I was waiting for some force outside of my body to magically endow me with healthiness.

But, when I realized that I was made in the image of God.  It meant when I repeated an affirmation I am actually talking to myself – particularly my divine self within.  In other words, I am trying to stir those hidden forces within me – the same hidden forces that exist in our universe to manifest healthiness.  That’s when I began to overcome my fear of my divinity. You see, just like those hidden forces are stirred in the universe to take an acorn hidden in soil and develop or grow it into a visible and physical tree.  I had to develop or shall we say grow healthiness into my physical life.

That’s right! You got it. Now, don’t try to make logical sense of it because it is a miraculous or magical process. That’s why as soon as I realized that there was a part of me that is supposed to understand a part of the universe, but there’s another part that is not and must remain a mystery. I stopped trying to always figure things out and began to rest assure that if I hand certain problems to the mysterious or spiritual part of my being. It would provide me with a perfect solution to address the visible and physical part of my being.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

To remind myself of this process, I discovered and studied the Maa Aankh cosmogram so that I wouldn’t forget that the part of my being that seeks to understand everything was the habitual part of my being that we call the subconscious or  TASETT. The mysterious part of my being I simply understood was my superconscious self and referred to it as KAMTA.  It was a perfect analogy because KAMTA – the Black Land is a perfect symbol for soil, meaning that just like you plant a seed in soil for the hidden forces to stir and develop into a tree. If you plant an idea deep within your superconscious or deep within your spirit, those same hidden forces will develop that idea into a physical reality.

sprout

So, with that understanding, when I repeated the affirmation or rather declaration before retiring, “I am healthy.” The more I repeated it, the stronger it became like a seed sprouting and rooting itself in fertile soil, “I am healthy” sprouted and rooted itself in the fertile soils of my spirit. In time, I began to feel healthy, think healthy, live healthy and become healthy.

I decided to try out some other affirmations or declarations like “I am strong. I am blessed. I am happy,” and so on.  The successful results from all of these affirmations made me see that any declaration that had to deal with ennobling my character worked, which led me to addressing the final hurdle to overcome my fear of my divinity. So, I took the plunged and repeated this affirmation before retiring, “I am god.”

osar

“Oh, no he didn’t?” you ask, but yes I did and guess what repeating this affirmation before retiring did. It cemented and solidify within my (subconscious) mind that as a Divine Being, I am the creator of my reality and anything that I do not like in my life. All I have to do is stir the powers within me and change them, because after all, I am made in the image of the Divine.

Never Forget

It made perfect sense why great Western minds like Thomas Edison would go to sleep in search of a solution that troubled them in the physical realm. It was so that they could escape the physical reality and seek the counsel of their higher spirit or superconscious mind. Others great minds have found other ways of tapping into the Divine Consciousness like meditation, which simply means contemplation and was initially used to obtain solutions, but in order to get to this point. One has to first overcome their fear of their divinity and understand that the Divine is within them.  When I overcame my fear of my divinity.  It made perfect sense why our ancestors would do a ring shout, because the idea was to move one’s conscious awareness to the superconscious or KAMTA state of being. (Sidebar: It is interesting to note that people who continue to hold on to this shamanic way of thinking perform similar rites and practices by moving in a circular pattern as well).

It was this understanding that made me embrace my divinity and my cultural heritage.  Now, when faced with a problem, I can’t wait to run home so that I can take the issue to my superconscious or spirit. I guess you can say that I can’t wait to go home to go to asleep.

Hope that helps.

Peace.





Did the Secret Work For You?

6 04 2010

Have you seen the Secret?

(Sample photo of an “Npu standing in the Land of Kam” – work of art in progress).

Yeah, I know you have. I saw it too. It took the world by storm and everyone was on board about a year ago because of Oprah. The lady who wrote the book really did a good job with the publicity and I give her credit. I hold no ill feelings towards her or her success, but the Secret didn’t work for me. Even though a lot of what the authors talk about makes sense because they are based upon the “Law of Attraction” there are other laws that exist that cancel out the Law of Attraction if things aren’t working together.

I promised myself that I was not going to preach, but you know in this book they don’t explain or talk about the Spirit, which the author calls the Genie or whatever. Because they don’t talk about the Spirit (Genie) it sends out a mixed message to people, making them think that all they have to do is think positive. Let me give you an example.

One section in particular talks about how if you say “you don’t want” the Universe only hears “you want” such as if you say you don’t want a bad haircut then you will end up getting a bad haircut. Ok? But I am a real pragmatic individual. So, why did the Universe lay me off of my job when I woke up every morning saying because I was tired, “Man, I sure don’t want to go work today”?

According to the Secret, the Universe should have said, “HAHAHAHA. Rau Khu is talking silly…he’s just tired. He wants to go to work and have a job“, but it didn’t. My behind was laid off. Before the Secret came out, I was testing this whole attraction thing (before I knew that is what it is called) and I said, “I want $3000 by x, y, z date”. Guess what I got it. It was part of my severance pay!!!

So, what does this all mean? Well, there’s a saying…”Be careful what you ask for”. Why do you have to be careful? Because the Spirit or Power of God does not make a distinction between what is right or wrong, right and left, front or back, etc. It’s sole objective is as they say in the Secret to grant our wish, because God gave us freedom of choice to do whatsoever we want to do.

If we don’t put any guidelines and aren’t specific on how we want to achieve that goal.  We meet the Divine Opener of the Way (also called the Divine Trickster in some traditions) called Npu (Anubis in Greek, Elegba in Yoruba, Lucero in the Palo Mayombe tradition, Moses in Christianity and Nino de Atocha in Catholicism).

Who is Npu you ask? Without going into a long dissertation, Npu is the personal guardian angel/spirit that everyone has (regardless if they believe in him or not) given to us by God to guide us throughout life.  He is envisioned as being a young man or teenager wearing a dog/jackal mask. The dog/jackal mask is a reminder to adherents to be specific with their request and careful what they ask for because if the subject matter is not black and white or if there’s any grey areas.  You are bound to get a surprise because Npu can be very fickle and mischievous, which is the reason many assume that he is evil.  But, Npu is not evil at all.  He closes the doors (sort of speak) only to test our integrity and help us to learn about our own divinity. For instance, if I hadn’t been laid off after saying numerous times that I did want to go to work. I would never have learned that our thoughts influence our actions and just like negative thoughts yield negative results. Constructive thoughts can inspire constructive action.

So, I think the best way to get things moving is to:

1. State what you want, meaning focus only on the desired outcome and nothing else. If trying to recover from an illness don’t think about how you became ill or any of that other nonsense. Focus on enjoying your life and being healed. Try watching comedies to help you to keep your spirits up.

2. Allow the Spirit to intercede by sending you an inspiring message through Npu.

3. Follow the inspiration with action to get the desired result. Remember, you have to follow up with some kind of action to get what you want. If you don’t you are just a dreamer.

One of my personal favorites is starting from the Finish Line.   For instance, if you wanted to run a race don’t train to win the race, but instead train as if you have already won.
