Seeing God through Ebony Eyes (Seeing Kamitic-ly)

29 01 2012

Hetepu (Peace) Family,

Greetings. Greetings. It’s good to be here.

The other day I was watching a program on National Geographic and they were talking about healing or what they called Strange Healings, which was non-Western approaches to healing. One of the healing practices they featured was the practices of a shaman from the Andes. This particular shaman had diagnosed his patient by using a guinea pig. A similar practice exist in Africa using a goat. In remote parts of Asia they use a sheep or chicken. Anyway, the shaman from the Andes whom they call Maestro (Master) after diagnosing the ailments correctly, offered the guinea to the earth and prepared another offering to remove the spirits that brought the illness from the patient. Then, he chased the spirits away with a series of ritual actions.It was an interesting segment but then they brought on Western trained anthropologists, psychologists and sociologists who talked about that the reason the shaman was successful, was because of a placebo effect.

“Really???” I asked. “How sad.”

How sad I said because it is really a shame that Westerners can’t see beyond their arrogance. Now, I am not totally against Western education and thinking, but you need to know its limitations, which is based totally upon the physical senses. It is the failure recognize that there is something beyond the physical that prevents Westerners from making any serious grounds spiritually.  It is because the people in the Andes can see beyond the physical and identify with the spiritual that allows them to see the sacredness of all things like the coca leaves, which they chew daily. That Westerners have abused, misused and are addicted to.

Now, I am not promoting drugs use but I am trying to get you to see that it is our Western thinking that prevents us from seeing the wholeness of God. It is our Western training that makes us arrogantly believe that because we don’t  understand a thing.  Means that it is not real or effective.  This also is what makes us search for God through someone else eyes rather it be through an Arab’s, Chinese or East Indian’s perspective. The problem with this of course, is that the spirituality of these peoples reflects their divinity through their own eyes and not of foreigners. This means that when you take this same Western or non-holistic perspective and try to learn about someone else spirituality that is foreign to you. It is not going to work either, because there is a safe guard preventing people from abusing and misusing it for mundane and profane purposes.

It is this same safe guard during the Cultural Movement of the 1960s and 70s, that prevented people like The Beatles, Jim Morrison and the Doors, and everyone else during that period from truly climbing higher spiritually, and. Instead led many of them to abusing substances, social disorder and the committing all sorts of heinous acts despite their original natural and peaceful intentions.

It is the same safe guard that made the Great I AM tell Moses to inform the Children of Israel not to gaze upon Him at Mt Sinai because they would perish. What is this safe guard?  It is culture. Culture and spirituality are uniquely tied or joined at the hip and if you don’t have one. It is hard to get the other. In fact, culture is what spirituality different from religion.

What’s the difference you ask between spirituality and religion? Real quick, religion is based solely upon beliefs whereas spirituality is based upon experience. A person can change their beliefs like changing their clothes but you can’t change or deny your experience. This is why spirituality in most non-Western cultures is closely tied to initiations, where you either received the initiation or not.Religion is something you practice. Spirituality is what you are.  Have you ever asked a person who they are and answer they are Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, etc.? This is a religious individual, because their beliefs are dictating who they are and will be. A true spiritual minded individual tells you his or her name based with conviction based upon their experience.

It is this lack of holistic thinking that makes people jump around and try other faiths. I know because I did it as well. Fortunately, my padrino (godfather) and I met and helped me to see life from a different perspective. Of course, it didn’t come quickly. I had to go through a bit of ordeal as you all know, but this ordeal was my trial by fire or leading to my burning bush initiation.  It was because of my initiation I began to see the Kamitic tradition differently. Like many, I had read and read the Kamitic legends numerous times and just chalked them up as fanciful stories, which is evidence of my Western education (indoctrination),  non-holistic thinking and lack of maturity. When I was undergoing my informal initiation that’s when the truth of the Story of Ra and Oset appeared to me.

The Story of Ra & Oset

According to legend, Oset (Aset/Auset/Isis) wanted to be a goddess, so she conjured up some old foot magic and created a serpent, so that when Ra journeyed across the two lands.  The serpent would poison Ra with its bite and in order to save him. Ra would have to reveal his true name to her based upon the belief that whosoever knows his true name could control him. As planned, Ra journeyed across his kingdom and when he came upon the serpent that lie in his path, he was bitten and became very ill. In agony Ra called out to his children to save him but none knew of a cure except for Oset. When Oset came to Ra’s aid she called him to reveal his true name to her so that she could drive the poison out him. Ra after much hesitation tells Oset,

I have made the heavens and the earth, I have ordered the mountains, I have created all that is above them, I have made the water, I have made to come into being the great and wide sea, I have made the ‘Bull of his mother,’ from whom spring the delights of love. I have made the heavens, I have stretched out the two horizons like a curtain, and I have placed the soul of the gods within them. I am he who, if he openeth his eyes, doth make the light, and, if he closeth them, darkness cometh into being.  At his command the Nile riseth, and the gods know not his name. I have made the hours, I have created the days, I bring forward the festivals of the year, I create the Nile-flood. I make the fire of life, and I provide food in the houses. I am KhepeRA in the morning, I am RA at noon, and I am Tmu at evening.”

After hearing all that Ra had said, Oset told him, “The poison continues to run through your body because you have not reveal your true name, my Lord.” Finally having no other choice Ra conceded and he led Oset into another room so that no one else could hear them.  When they were alone. Ra caused his name to pass from within him and into Oset, which she used to drive the poison out of Ra’s body.   The story ends with the impression that the name was not revealed, but the story was a riddle because the name was revealed to Oset in secret. To understand the story, the word for secret and hidden is “Amun or Amen,” which also means to conceal (this is the reason the word was borrowed and used to follow the end of Jewish, Christian and Islamic prayers).

Basic Kongo Cosmogram

It was from this Story it was revealed to me that Khepera (sunrise), Ra (midday), Ra Atum or Tmu (sunset) and Amun Ra (midnight) are not God. They are the divine attributes of the Almighty God, Nebertcher. Together these four attributes correspond to the four moments of the sun (sunrise, midday, sunset and midnight), the four directions (east, north, west and south), the four stages of Life (birth, life, death and rebirth) and the four moments of the Kongo cosmogram (Kala, Tu-Kula, Luvemba and Musoni).

Kongo Cross (Dikenga)

This is how I discovered the maa aankh, a Kamitic – Kongo inspired cosmogram based upon my ancestors’ cultural perspective, which reveals my divinity and uniqueness.  Instead of making me feel inferior or culturally subservient to others.

Maa Aankh
So you see, Egyptologists and other Western scholars got it wrong because they are not culturally in sync with the Kamitic thinking, which was holistic. It was because of my experience guided by the wisdom of my padrino, that allowed me to rediscover and resurrect my own divinity. Thereby connecting to God, which allowed me to see the sacredness of all things. In other words, I had to see God through my Ebony Eyes in order to get a holistic perspective to improve my life.  This is why I am eternally grateful for meeting my padrino because without him I would never have had the pleasure of meeting the orisha Ochossi (Oxossi) and later the netchar Maat.

That’s right, it was Maat that showed me the entire picture or Maa. It was Maat that showed me the Maa (the Way), which I hope you can see means more than just balance, reciprocity, law, justice, order, karma, etc. I hope you can see the difference from knowing and believing in God. When you believe.  You only see part of the picture – usually the one based upon your physical senses, hence the intellectual side everything (based upon your limited understanding).  You see the differences between yourself and others, which is why it is hard for people to come together peacefully.Not only that, when you just believe you tend to argue with others on who is right or wrong, which is a typical Npu (Anubis/Sebek) and Eshu (Ellegua) trick, all due to perspective.

It is important to note that people that believe in God need rules, laws and commandments to follow or they believe that God will punish them and so on. And, rightfully so, because without these rules they would cause great harm to themselves and others because they lack the maturity, understanding and responsibility.

Spiritual people on the other hand don’t just believe in God but know God, which allows them to see life holistically. They live their life based upon what is ideally correctly. A truly spiritual minded individual can or tries to harmonize (be at peace) with anyone regardless if they agree with their beliefs or not, because they understand everyone has a journey. They can come together peacefully with others because they focus on the individual’s spirit. This does not mean they condone negative, self-destructive and perverted behavior, no more than Moses did. It just means that see the sacredness of all things and do not need any commandments, laws and rules to tell them what they should and should not do. Because they see the dangers beforehand. It is part of the holistic or Maa perspective.

I say all this to inform you that if you find yourself flip flopping from faith to faith, not knowing which way to turn or what is right from wrong.  If you feel that you have lost your way or that you haven’t found your way.  It could be because you are looking at life from one perspective and not seeing the whole picture. It might be time for you put down the books and ask Maat to show you the other side of life.  So that you can develop your intuition and learn to see life holistically.

Peace. Hope this helps.


The Power of Trance – Pt. 1 Adapting Kamitic Spirituality to the Holidays

11 12 2011

Hetepu (Peace) Family,

As another year comes to a close the time has come to think about what it is that we want in the future. Yes, that’s right.

“What do you want little boy or little girl for Christmas?”

What?  You don’t believe in Santa Claus. Well, you should because he’s real. No, he’s not a physical man riding around in a sleigh being pulled by magical reindeer led by Rudolph.  In order to shoot down a chimney and deliver toys.  No, Santa Claus is what the Greek philosopher Plato calls a Form; Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung calls an archetype, what people nowadays call a guardian spirit and what the Kamitic (ancient Egyptian) philosophers called thousands of years ago a netcharu.

That’s right. Santa Claus is a real spiritual entity that travels around the world at night from the North Pole.  There, in the north, which according to the orthodox kabbalah and the maa aankh is the direction of Hell, is where Santa and his little helpers are at making toys and things.

To prepare for Santa, Saint Nick (Nicholas for short) or Sinister Claus as he used to be called, in the Medieval World, he was offered nuts, fruits and wine to sweeten his disposition. The tradition continues today with children leaving him cookies, candies, flan (if your Latino) and milk because Ole Nick has a ravenous appetite for alcoholic beverages and can become quite unruly if he drinks too much.

Still don’t recognize who Santa Claus really is? Well, you have to go into trance to see him. This is how you see spirits. When you go into trance your brain moves from the normal beta state to the alpha state, because your ab (conscious awareness) has shifted from your sahu (subconscious) to your ba (superconscious). In other words, your awareness is introverted, which allows you to see spiritual things among other “things”. When your ab is extroverted you can only see things from a superficial level. You can see all of the parts and not be able to see the whole picture. For instance, you see Santa Claus from a literal perspective, as being a figment of imagination, of most likely of European origin, that wears red clothing, makes a list, loves children, punishes the wicked and fail to see that Santa Claus is the European syncretism of the Kamitic Npu (the Santeria Ellegua, Umbanda Exu and Palo Lucero) who Opens the Way.  All of these gifts are offerings of fertility, so that he does not act/rule against you and allow you to suffer (at the jaws of Aummit).

So come on.  Don’t deprive your children and yourself of material and spiritual blessings. Who cares that you know the true history of Christmas.  Can you use it to improve your life with it? Can you explain it to your child?  Is your child cool with it or are they sitting around looking at other kids wishing they had another life? Adapting is how we have survived and the way to reintroduce ourselves back to our cultural way is by making changes.  Let us not forget that most of the holidays that exist were originally Kamitic, based upon the Kamitic calendar and Kamitic spiritual science.  In a desperate move for political control, Roman  Catholicism built on top of them. That’s the history but we need to focus on today. So, leave some sweets out for your Npu and remember…

You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why:
Santa Claus or Npu is coming to town!

In part 2 I will explain why it is important to appease Npu and how Aummit manifests itself.

How to Communicate with the Egyptian Gods/Goddesses (Netcharu)

12 06 2011

My bad…My bad…You know, when I first posted information about the netcharu or Kamitic guardian spirits on the “Who and What Are the Ancient Egyptian Gods?“, I posted the Roman Catholic correspondences because the saints help me to assist those coming from this background.  I forgot to post their Christian associations, which are the forms these guardian spirits took when they first communicated to me, since I come from a fundamentalist Christian background.  I will post their corresponding forms in this post, but before doing this I wanted to explain how I made these connections.

I was not trying to plug and play but really trying to understand how these guardian angels could speak with me. I knew that others like Ra Un Nefer Amen of the Ausar Auset Society had done it using surviving information from the Indus Kush and Yoruba tradition to make a connection, but I was in the spiritual desert or TASETT (see the maa aankh) at the time. I didn’t know anything about the Indus Kush or Yoruba tradition when I first began. So I would have to try and understand both of those traditions just to scratch the surface of what I needed. I went through this arduous and long intellectual process because as I stated I was raised as an Apostolic Pentecostal Christian, which basically means “Jesus only!” For those of you who don’t know what this means, let me give you a real brief explanation.  This faith, along with Jehovah Witnesses, believes that if you do not accept Jesus (or Jehovah in the case of Jehovah Witnesses) as your sole lord and savior that your soul is going to hell (or annihilated). Your salvation is in the hands of the Lord and while giving up one’s individuality and the right to question God was considered heresy.  So, even though culturally speaking I was raised to believe in spiritual beings that we called angels or ministering spirits.  Talking to them was seen as border lining on devil worship in their eyes, so in a way you were raised to ignore your culture.

I had read numerous books on the subject and still had no clear understanding of these spirits until I met my Cuban padrino who told me a story about the orishas. Papa, the name I called him, told me a legend he learned when he was in Cuba. I am giving a condense form of the story but he basically goes like this. At bars, when Oggun comes in with Oshun, all hell breaks loose because Oshun only has eyes for Chango, which leads to Oggun and Chango fighting and that’s when Ochosi comes and carts everyone to jail.  As Elegua sits in the corner laughing at the mischief he just caused.

If you ever went to a party or bar and witnessed fighting this is usually how it occurs, which gave me the foundation I needed to connect with the netcharu myself.  It was shamanic meditation that helped me to move beyond the intellectual phase of just giving a definition of the netcharu, to actually interacting with them.

Since the Kamitic writers of old did not leave any texts explaining who and what the netcharu were and where they came from, a number of theories have been created to fill the intellectual void. Some believe they were created out of the blue, while others believe that they were anthropomorphized from nature.  I think that both of these theories are an insult to the Kamitic people of old intelligence and believed that these guardian spirits were once upon living people. For instance, the first legendary ruler of Kamit who united the kingdom was King Menes also known as King Narmer. This is no netchar named Narmer but, the closest netchar resembling these historic feats is Osar.

Why was King Narmer given another name you might ask? I don’t know for sure but my guess is that by honoring him using his name he could really only be honored as an ancestor by immediate family. By rewarding him the name Osar he was able to be honored as a saint by all people, including those outside of his family lineage. This way anyone knowing the important points of his story, because the historical account of Osar (Narmer) at this time was probably lost, could invoke the memory of the first king.  It was by admiring the positive attributes of the individual that these guardian spirits or ancestral archetypes were created that we call netcharu.  But as previously stated, the Kamitic people didn’t leave any texts explaining who the netcharu were, so with no existing information on them what do you do? How do you make contact with them? Well, by relying upon my Christian upbringing and Afro-spiritual culture.  I recalled that when the early Africans were brought to Protestant Christian North America, they were not able to create the same type of religious syncretism that their kin had done in the Caribbean and South America. They took the existing knowledge that they brought with them from Africa and using the bible created or “conjured” their own ancestral archetypes.  Using the same technique with the Kamitic guardian spirits and the bible, I conjured the netcharu and they are:

Osar (Osiris by the Greek) is Jesus

Oset  (Isis) is Mary the mother of Jesus

Hru manifested himself to me as King David from his extraordinary, naïve triumphs of a child over the giant to the humbling positioning he was placed in due to his arrogance, chauvinism and abuse of power.

Nebhet is Queen Esther, the queen that used beauty, riches and pleasure to defeat her enemy.

Hruaakhuti is none other than the two sword wielding apostle Peter

Sokar is the biblical Job who showed me how to be persistent and dance in the face of trials, tribulations, obstructions and especially illness. It was Sokar that taught me that the righteous are the ones that are reborn.

Maat appeared to me as John the Baptist the jailed prophesier who abided by and preached to the people about the Law

Djahuti is King Solomon, the alleged wisest man in the bible.

Npu is the lucky, faithful and optimistic Joseph the Dreamer. Another one of Npu’s avatars is the biblical Moses.

These ancestral archetypes that our ancestors conjured helped me to communicate with the guardian spirits or netcharu.  One lesson I had to learn was that Spirit is unlimited. It is not bound by time and space nor is it confined to rigidness of color, ethnicity or affiliation. Spirit can manifest itself through anyone and anything.  The connection has to be based upon energy.  This understanding helped me to see that even though these ancestral archetypes are not as prevalent as they were years ago. A comparison between the Kamitic legend, the biblical stories and documentaries about African American culture will give you a connection to the netcharu.  For instance, you can see the dreaming and great oratory skills of Npu manifested in Joseph the Dreamer and Moses in many preachers and leaders like Martin L. King Jr.  The same brute and sharp swords of Hruaakhuti can be seen in the Apostle Peter expressed through Malcolm X. The wisdom of Djahuti seen in the words of Solomon is expressed in the late great John H. Clarke. While the courageous, golden tongue and heir of Osar, Hru can be read about in King David’s biblical psalms and other great adventures, and seen in Muhammad Ali, and so on. Through them one can see how to invoke the power of God for self-improvement and wellbeing.

A Practical Kamtic Path for Obtaining Power


Guess What the Kamitic Secret Weapon Is?

31 05 2010

Peace Fam.

Interesting thing. Here recently, I was honoring the guardian spirits Oset and Nebhet (Nephthys, Hathor, Het Hru, Oshun, Mama Chola, etc.). And, suddenly I found myself engaged in a conversation with my wife and another Sis on the greatness. It was through the conversation, I was reminded why the Kamitic people became great. For those of you who don’t know, I travel back and forth from Michigan and Kansas. Kansas is a flat, boring and full of farmland. And, for the longest I never knew why I was brought to Kansas until I began witnessing numerous natural events that occurred like tornadoes.  I have witnessed a number of tornadoes, in fact, one of the deadliest tornadoes that hit Kansas occurred several years back in Greensburg, Kansas. This was the tornado that destroyed the whole town.  I mean it wiped the entire town off the face of the earth, which prompted former President G.W. Bush to visit (after his poor support due to Katrina) and a television show about green technology.  The interesting thing about this tornado, is that my father was just in that town 30 minutes prior to the tornado touching down.

Even though I am born and raised city mouse, while living in Kansas (farm country) there are some pretty interesting characteristics that I have picked up. It is because living in a area where the nearest major city is some three to four hours away, you learn to observe the things in nature, such as the way the animals act, the formation of clouds, how the wind blows, the smell of rain, etc. These are all signs or peculiar traits of a farmer that most city dwellers don’t know. You only pick up these traits when you live in rural areas like when you see a lot of cows sitting in the pasture, it symbolizes that rain is coming soon.These are the peculiar traits that our ancestors along the Nile River had and developed because they were one of the world’s first (if not the first) agriculturalists that were in tune with nature. People amaze me talking about how animals can be used as an early warning system to signify catastrophe because of the tsunami that hit Indonesia a few years back. Well, the only way they can be used in that sense is if you are in tuned with the Spirit of God or Nature.

But, the Kamitic people didn’t become great because of their discovery of agricultural science. While this contributed to them becoming a prosperous and powerful nation. The Kamitic society became great because of their women.  Let me say this again because I know a lot of you are use to hearing how bold the warriors were and great their kings were, because we live in a very chauvinistic Anglo society that values physical strength and might.  These are great but when they are not balanced they lead to the current state society is in now.  So, let me say it again, Kamit did not become a great nation because of these men.  They became great because of their WOMEN. That’s right, it was the SISTAHS, that made Kamit Great.

You see, thankfully the men of Kamit were humble (not weak but not arrogant and chauvinistic) and they took what the women did and made it into a science. They took the symbols and signs that women dreamed of and codified it into a symbolic language, which led to Kamit become a powerful, spiritual nation. The men of Kamit understood that they were by divine design very extroverted and in order to make things work, had to work with their counterpart, the women of Kamit, who introverted.   A true study of the Kamitic culture will reveal that the women were the Kamitic men’s secret weapon, this is why Oset was so loved and why in the Kamitic legends she is so despised by the enemy Set. Women in traditional indigenous societies weren’t prized possessions (as they are viewed in Anglo and Arabic societies). They were prized counterparts, which is why in Kamit women had similar rights as men including the right to divorce, own land and even join the priesthood – churches and religious institutions are still struggling with this one.  It is sad in this crazy world, in order for women to get respect they got to show that they are as tough as a man or they have to parade their excessively flaunt and parade their sexuality.  I remember one of the sweetest rappers back in the day was MC Lyte. Back when a rapper could blow up the spot and cap on another rapper without them and their loved ones being harmed…MC Lyte stumped lyrically beat the stank out of male and female rappers. Let’s not even talk about all those Roxanne and UTFO. (Wow Ole’ Skool).

Anyway, in traditional society.  Women were valued co-workers because they represented that mysterious part of the puzzle that exists in Nature that men cannot figure out. (That’s why we can’t win an argument! Smile).  It was only after the Euro-Indo influence that women were more valued for their sexuality and ability to produce.  Don’t believe me…watch, if you can stomach it…the movie Alexander (I still haven’t seen all of this film. My spirit will not let me do it :)). Alexander didn’t know what to do with his wife played by Rosario Dawson.  Anglos not understanding the power of women, whenever  women acted themselves classified them as witches and burned them at the stake…remember Salem.  By the way, they did this all throughout Europe. They just didn’t Understand.  Westerners have always had a problem with women, which is why they blamed women for the downfall of humankind. That whole original sin thing. This stigma continues to this day, which is why many still feel it is a curse to be a woman. This is not how indigenous people around the world saw women. Our civilization was as a great as our women. If a society was great it was a reflection of the Queen Bees.

So, let me show you how this mysterious and magical thing with women work.  To use a previous example, all of the women in my family believe that if they dream of fish it indicates that someone in the family is pregnant.  They believe this because it has never failed. In fact my wife had a dream about fish and saw my cousin’s face in it and wondered what it meant. I told her it means, my cousin is pregnant and although my cousin tried to keep it secret, most of the women in my family already knew because of similar dreams and hunches. Now, what’s interesting is that besides my wife, none of the women in my family know anything about Kamitic spirituality.  Which is why it surprises them when I tell them fish are a sign of abundance and children (this is a symbolic message from the Spirit) that fall under the protection of the guardian spirit or netcharu of fertility, motherhood and pregnancy Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis, the Virgin Mary, Mother of Pearls, etc.).

Now, as I have previously stated, my mother, aunts, sister-in-laws, female cousins, etc. don’t know anything about Kamitic spirituality. They consider themselves to be God-fearing Christians women, but they are influenced by Oset as you can clearly see. This begs one to ask, are they worshiping an idol? Clearly not.  These women from different backgrounds, different affiliations and ethnicity (we have African, Native American and Latin influences in my family tree) are united because of their cultural experience and ancestral legacy, which they might be aware of or not.  This is why our ancestors along the Nile called this division of the Spirit that deals with motherhood, childhood, fertility, pregnancy, etc. Oset.

Oset is not a deity.  She is a guardian spirit, an archetype or whatever you want her to be to help you to understand the Spirit of Motherhood that can be found in Nature or Netcher and within the human being.  Nature is derived from the Latin word natura which comes from the Kamitic word Netcher – the generic term for God.   It comes from God.  Our indigenous male ancestors just put a name on it in order to better understand the complexities of the Spirit because that is how most of our human brain works. We have to understand things logically. We have to make sense of it before we can sign off on it. Unfortunately, some of us are brains are too polarized in this way of thinking, which is why most Westerners are still stuck between  Baltic Avenue and Oriental Place in regards to our Spiritual traditions, because they are biologically and culturally unaware.  They just don’t get it.

When we ignore the notion that our ancestors (along the Nile, throughout Africa, throughout indigenous America, etc.) worshiped deities and false idols, and simply categorized natural events in a sophisticated, symbolic, cultural manner which the Kamitic people called paut neteru/netcharu. It begins to make sense how our ancestors along the Nile were able to advance at such a high level. Like farmers they had to work hand and hand with Nature/Netcher, whom they called by the way Nebertcher – The Lord of Everything.  This is how the core netcharu came into being:

  • Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) the Lord of the Dead is the guardian spirit of peace, wisdom, purity, knowledge and fertility. Associated with the Resurrected Jesus and La Virgin de las Mercedes.
  • Oset (Aset, Ast, Auset, Isis) the Mother of Revolution is the guardian spirit of positive change and motherhood. Associated with the Virgin Mary, Virgin de la Regla and Virgen of the Miraculous Medals.
  • Hru (Hra, Heru, Horus) the Heir of Osar is the guardian spirit of victory, success and triumph. Associated with Samson, King David and St. Barbara.
  • Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti, Thoth) the Lord of Change is the guardian spirit of divination. Associated with King Solomon and St. Francis of Assisi.
  • Nebhet (Nephtys) Lady of the House is the guardian spirit love, beauty, pleasure, money and peace. Associated with Mary Magdalene and La Virgin de la Caridad del Cobre.
  • Sokar (Sokher, Seker) Lord of the Cemetery is the guardian spirit of resurrection, renewal and illness. Associated with Lazarus.
  • Npu (Anpu, Enpu, Anubis) the Messenger/Traveler between the Living and Dead, is the guardian spirit of guidance. The master of the cross-road.  Associated with the Moses and El Nino de la Atocha.
  • Maat the Gatekeeper of Life/Death is the guardian spirit of balance, righteousness and sanity. Associated with Joshua and St. Norbert.
  • Hruaakhuti (Ra-Hor-kahuti, Bedhuty, Herukhuti) Lord of the Double Horizon, is the guardian spirit of justice. Associated with the disciple Peter and St. George the Destroyer of Dragons.

The Kamitic devil (sort of speak) is called Set.  Set is the spirit of War, chaos, destruction, confusion, imbalance. You name it. He has his hand in it, which is why he later became Set-an and Satan in the Christian tradition.  So, when the tornado his Greensburg, I knew it was Set, because Set is the author of confusion, chaos and destruction. Unlike the Judeo-Christian belief in the devil that sees the devil as opposing God.  Ancient African science teaches that this whole good/bad dichotomy is all meant to establish balance.  For instance, because I see Set as a real force/energy, that brings destruction, his presence also signals rebirth and change. Prime example, Greensburg, Kansas is being rebuilt with new, green technology.

In “What is the Kamitic Way of Life?: Part I”, I mention how I met my padrino an old Cuban man that opened my eyes to a lot of things and taught me about building a spiritual boveda or bóveda (espiritismo). Papa was an omo-Ellegua (Child of the guardian angel/orisha Ellegua – the Yoruba opener of the Way). My Npu guided both of us to meet.  Again, some people call it magical because they prefer to quote scriptures and talk about what they think God can do but don’t want to walk on faith and make the word of God flesh (proof). When you walk on faith, it becomes a wonderful experience because God answers your prayers. I know not when things are blocked and I ask for a way to be open, I get a message from God when I see three dogs hanging on a street corner or three dogs out of nowhere cross the street forcing me to stop and pay attention. (These are all signs of Npu).

This is just an example of what Spiritual Sciences can do for you, because that’s just one division of the Spirit of God that governs one particular aspect of nature. People that don’t understand the nature of the Spirit and how God communicates to us calls this superstitions. I guess the burning bush that Moses saw would be considered superstitious too.  This is because we have been conditioned into believing that God has to make some miraculous and extraordinary sign for us to say, “Hey God is speaking to me.” As you can see, there is a part of us that has to understand things and a part of us we have to shut down and use faith to see things.  Remember according to contemporary science God doesn’t exist…but something within us knows this is not true. This is how the Kamitic men dealt with things as well. They recognized that their sistahs could see access things that they as men could not at the time.

Now, imagine if the women in my family (and all over) who believed that fish signifies pregnancy truly began to re-educate themselves about their own spirituality…what would really happen?  Did you get goosebumps? I know I did. 🙂

***Please note that cultural and religious syncretism doesn’t truly occur by intellectualizing. True syncretism or dissimulation – the deliberate of mixing beliefs and influence in order to preserve and maintain a tradition – occurs by noting observable practical similarities.   This is why I don’t identify the Yoruba Oggun and Oya with Set because they are not the same, although they have simlarities. ****

What is the Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life?

I have answered this question numerous times. In the beginning, I use to give a real lengthy discourse, but I am older and much wiser, and I hope this short post answers the question for you.  Now, there is a lot that has been written about the Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life because the Kamitic/Kemetic people and their society mean a lot of things to different people. The Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life to me is based upon my early experiences.

You see, when I first began learning about Kamit/Kemet, I am not going to lie; I was amazed and just fascinated by all of the metaphysical principles. So much so, that I really tried to apply them to my life. What ended up happening was that I found myself participating in various study groups and attending numerous lectures where I saw the same people all the time. At the same time because my ideas and beliefs were considered so radical from my family and peers, I was somewhat ostracized. Things got a whole lot worse before they got better, but to make a long story short, looking back at all that I experienced I basically was a “metaphysical/spiritual groupie”.

The Aakhut or Right Utchat
(The Solar Eye – corresponds to the factual, logical, and rational information)

For the longest time I couldn’t understand what was going wrong. I mean I read, studied my lessons, and I tried as best I could to eat right, but I just was not growing.  I felt spiritually impotent even though my personal library consisted of over 250 books at such a young age.

I didn’t know it at the time but the reason I was not growing was because I just had like Hru, the red Deshret crown. This crown corresponds to TASETT the Red Lands, which symbolizes the physical realm and lower self. It also corresponds to the Right Solar Eye, which is based solely upon what we have learned from our family, friends (and enemies), community, etc. All of our factual information and everything we have learned about our environment, including our beliefs and ideas are associated with this crown.

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

Then that’s when I met my padrino (spiritual godfather), an old black Cuban man who taught me a lot of wonderful things and helped me to understand our cultural heritage by introducing me African cosmology. Papa was an Omo Ellegua (Child of the orisha/guardian angel Ellegua), so it made sense that he magically would appear in my life like Shug Avery appeared to Celie in The Color Purple. There were a lot of things that Papa taught me but when he learned that I was reading and studying about the Kamitic/Kemetic tradition and trying to implement it into my life.  Boy he scolded me big time (laugh) and told me that it was silly to try and replicate what was done thousands of years ago, because what the Ancient Egyptians faced back then is completely different from the issues we have today. He told me instead that I should focus upon understanding the concepts and principles because the concepts and principles have a common ancestry. Then shortly after that, like Shug he disappeared only to briefly reappear to check on my progress, similar to the Kamitic/Kemetic Npu, Ellegua guides the dead because I was truly lost.

At the time I didn’t really understand what Papa meant by what he had said but as the years went by it began to make more and more sense. It was like learning to speak Latin, it is a great language for referencing purposes but no one speaks Latin because it is for the most part a dead-language. Basically, everything that I had read and learned about the Kamitic/Kemetic way was good but it gave me only a one-sided perspective, a real linear, black-white viewpoint (un-holistic). This is why in the Story of Osar, Set is said to have gouged out Hru’s eye, meaning he gave Hru a limited view of things. Well, when I finally began to follow Papa’s advice, that’s when I began to get the white Hedjet crown in regards to spirituality.

The white Hedjet crown corresponds to KAMTA, the Black Lands, which symbolizes the spiritual realm and our higher self.

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

The spiritual realm is accessible through nonphysical or spiritual means such as by using our intuition represented as the Left Utchat or the Lunar Eye.

 This is when I got a better view, a holistic view because I was introduced to my ancestors.

It was through my ancestors in regards to this subject matter that I acquired the double white and red Pschent crown,
which symbolizes the union of both the physical and spiritual realities, holistic view and the uniting of the higher and lower selves.

And, it was through my ancestors that I discovered the Maa Aankh, which helped me to realize that life is all about cycles.
We succeed, evolve and grow when we make a complete 360 degree revolution around the spiritual and physical realms like the sun.

So, what is the Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life About?

It is about surrendering your will to your Higher Self or Spirit within so that it can lead and help you to enjoy life. Period.
