What Does It Really Mean to Tap Into the Power of God?

15 10 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, the other day a fellow comrade shared a video with me that featured a number of prominent actresses and singers rapping about male genitalia. I am sure many of you have seen or heard about this video so there is no need to give it more energy than it deserves. The thing was that my friend (as a number of people I saw in the comment section) were pretty shocked.  When I asked my Brah why he was so upset that some of the ladies were in the video. He told me because he really respected some of the ladies in the video because he thought they were “conscious” and would not humiliate themselves by stooping to such a level.  This prompted us to have a really deep conversation because this is one of the misnomers that people have about consciousness.

Consciousness or “woke” means that you are aware or can see, but consciousness does not mean spiritual development and elevation. What’s the difference, you ask? Let me give you a real quick example.  Due to the aggressive anti-tobacco campaign, everyone (non-smokers and smokers alike) throughout the United States are aware of the dangers of cigarette smoking, hence they are “conscious” or “woke.” However, it is believed that 36.5 million people continue to smoke cigarettes because cigarette smoking is a destructive habit that is deeply lodged into peoples’ lower spirit (sahu/subconscious part of their being). The sahu part of our being is not governed by reasoning but by emotions, which is why if you ask a cigarette smoker when they started smoking and why. Most of them will tell you that it was peer pressure and risk-taking behavior. This is the reason it is so difficult for so many people to break this habit because we all do not respond to peer pressure and social conditionings in the same manner.

What does this have to do with conscious people? Simple. Just because a person is conscious or woke does not mean that they overcome their personal Set. I have met people from all walks of life who have literally floored me with the amount of knowledge they knew, like the gangster who was telling me how he knew the Ancient Egyptians were Black. However, this knowledge was not enough to make him stop abusing alcohol and smoking weed. Or, the lady with the most gorgeous dreadlocks who was all into holistic living, spirituality, doing yoga, etc. but she couldn’t have a successful relationship because she treated all men as if they were her enemy.

The point that I am making is that consciousness or woke means that you are aware or can see because you are informed.  It does not mean you are developing spiritually or spiritually evolving. This misunderstanding is due to the fact that archeologists, historians and Western pagans have told people that Djahuti (in Greek Thoth) is the Greek Hermes and Roman Mercury, but this is not correct. Hermes and Mercury are both tricksters like the Yoruba Eshu and Kemetic Npu (Anubis).  In Kemetic lore, it was not until Npu (Anubis) assisted Oset (Isis) that she was able to successfully find the body parts of Osar (Osiris) and successfully mummify him with Djahuti’s assistance. This is an allusion referring to the fact that Npu Opens the Way, as one of his praise names Ap-Uat (Opener of the Way), states.

In other words, Npu starts the ball rolling for your development. He leads you to the door that will open to your spiritual and physical freedom.   He is the one responsible for all of us becoming “woke” because he is the lord of information and the master of this Information Age, but note. With all of this information, we still cannot solve live peacefully with one another. We still cannot eradicate poverty or cease the destruction of our planet. This is a classic trickster move to get us to understand that all of the technology in the world cannot bring us peace, prosperity, perfect health, success, wealth, love, etc. because these are all ethereal.

To put it bluntly, actors, actresses, athletes, singers, musicians, etc. are not gods and goddesses.  They are entertainers paraded in front of us to be our role models but these people have Sets (personal demons) that they have to overcome. This is why I was not surprised when I saw certain actresses and singers publicly disgracing themselves because they may have been conscious but their Osar was’t alive.

The enemy knows that we all draw from the Rau (the Power of God), which is the archetypical Source of All Things. What archeologists, historians, etc. call gods and goddesses are actually guardian spirits or archetypes of the Rau that the Kemetic people called netcharu (netjaru).  Or, we can simply call them netchars.  We are all influenced by these guardian spirits or netchars but some of these netchars take a more dominant role in our life. These netchars are sometimes referred to as our personal guardians, our godheads and/or spiritual parents.  We all have spiritual parents rather we choose to believe in them or not, and this goes for celebrities as well.

So, the reason Snoop Dogg refers to himself as such, is because he is a Npumesh (child of Npu). Beyonce is Oset’s child. Kayne is Hrumesh (Hru or Horus’ child), and we can go on and on.  All you have to do is study the mythology and observe how these people act and behave. The reason I am mentioning this is because if these individuals’ Osar had been revived in their life, they would understand that many of the problems that they face corresponds to their guardian spirit or netchar. For instance, everyone has problems with self-control but this is a major problem with all of Hru’s children. Hru’s children will struggle with some form of self-control because that’s the energy that they incarnated with on to the planet. Now,  with that being said, go back and look at the things that Kayne West has done. If you are into Latin music, like I am because they actually proudly sing about the Yoruba orishas (the guardian spirits of the Yoruba tradition), you will see this self-control problem manifesting in Marc Anthony.

Understand.  The enemy knows how the guardian spirits manifest themselves but he refuses to publicly acknowledge it and will continue to delude us by saying they are gods, goddesses, deities, etc. Set does this because he does not want us to truly learn about these energies, so we can use them to overcome our personal Sets. Does it make sense why it is so Easy to sing and rap about the latest dance, drink, drug, syrup, sex position, latest craze, mysigony, etc.? Again, in the Kemetic lore Set was said to be married to Nebhet, the guardian spirit who governs entertainment, until she finally left him. So, it is great to encourage these entertainers when they act and behave in our best interest but that’s it.

Yes, encourage these celebrities to resurrect their Osar so we can all be free from this mess.  In fact, I look forward to that day when all of us free from this mental/spiritual tyranny.  First instance, could you imagine if Snoop had made a song about his divinity instead of “What’s My Name?” In fact, could you imagine what would happen if Kayne, Beyonce, or any of these entertainers had an awakened Osar how powerful their music would be? I mean seriously think how Hip Hop would have been different if the pioneers had taken their creative genius and used it as a means of empowerment.  Then, put a trademark on it so that it could be used for empowerment instead of being capitalized and monopolized by those who do not have our best interests. I mean did you know there are neo-fascist rappers? I mean just think of the stupidity in that, a group of people who hate you because of your complexion but they are going to take your music and use it to promote their hatred of you?

Again, I am not here to place blame on anyone because it is the enemy that has manipulated and tricked us all. Does it make sense why the enemy manipulates these entertainers to serving his selfish purpose for an award, a trophy, a ring, public gratification, money, etc.?

Yes, the enemy (Set) takes advantage of us all because of our ignorance of our Higher Self or Osar.

So, let’s not be deluded.  We need to see celebrities for who they are, which is ordinary people with similar if not greater struggles as us. Just because Set parades these talented individuals in front of us as false idols does not make them special. We need to return our eyes to the true glory of the Divine and replace these false idols with real models of individuals who have successfully overcome their Set.

Who or What are the Ancient Egyptian Gods?

15 03 2010

Originally posted 2/1/10 from the Land of Kam website under the title
“The Paut Neteru (Netcharu, Netjeru):  The Emissaries of the Holy Spirit – Ra”

Who or what are the netcharu? Well, let me first tell you that the first time I wrote about the neteru, netjeru or netcharu, it was based mostly upon scholarly research and theory. I had a little brush or experience with these divinities but no real relationship with them. I was just very zealous and like most, I was just happy and wanted to get the information out there about the Kamitic tradition.

Ok, for those of you that haven’t heard, I underwent a serious change in the past few years. I was gravely ill and almost died on two occasions (three is the charm number signifying that you better make some changes or else). I basically survived because I had to for a lack of a better term, “Sho’ N Prove” by putting what I had learned into action.  I had no get serious and find out quickly what worked for me.   I had to get down with some real juju, real fast and with no one in the so-called “spiritual” mindset to help me. I really had to do some things.  Meditation wasn’t getting it…no fluffy bunny stuff for me.  I had to get seriously FUNKY! It was through this experience I made a very interesting discovery.

The one thing that I learned was that the roots of the Kamitic tradition is essentially ancient African shamanism. This was interesting for two reasons: The first reason is because it dispels the myth that the Kamitic people had a pan-religion, meaning they believed in the same thing, worshiped the same way, etc. as often depicted and described by most authors, books, movies, etc.  In other words, everyone did not belong to the same priesthood or tradition because there were various traditions that existed and many of these traditions differed per geographical region.The one thing that the Kamitic people did have in common is that they universally believed in the existence of one God, whom they referred to as Nebertcher – “The Lord of Everything”.

The second thing that made understanding that the roots of the Kamitic religion is essentially African shamanism interesting was that like most African religions and traditions, the belief in ancestors was very strong. This meant that there was a unique relationship that the living had with their dead. It should be noted that most of the grand edifices of Kamit are actually memorials dedicated to their ancestors.

Now, when I was laying up on the hospital gurney, it was my ancestors that helped me to change my perspective about the neteru, which I was informed to call netcharu (such as in nature).  The generic word for God is Neter or Netchur, which is why people commonly refer to natural events as Nature. The energies/spirits controlling those events the Kamau called the netcharu.

The netcharu I was informed were similar to the other divinities but they were basically deified ancestor spirits, similar to the Basimbi of the Kongo. I was shown this because like I said, I was literally on a death bed and when you are close to death you see things completely different and not from an intellectual perspective, because you’re not concerned with what’s right or wrong. You’re only concerned with “What WORKS” when you’re on a deathbed. And, I am not saying that anyone is right or wrong.  I am just telling you what I saw and what helped me to escape Death’s grasp.  So, I was informed that there are a number of netcharu that are similar to the Yoruba orishsa (but for me they weren’t the same) that exists but the main ones and their Christian/Roman Catholic(1) correspondences are:

First there is only One God. The common name for the Supreme Being is Nebertcher – “Lord of All”. Under Nebertcher there is:

  • 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.  It is too bad that the early Christians didn’t completely understand the Kamitic tradition and just changed the names while copying it word for word. If they had, they would have caught that Set, the red one who is King of the North, is the spirit of sensory overload, excess, chaos, destruction, etc. So, when it comes time for Christmas (Winter Solstice Dec. 21-25) they would be cautious of the jolly Red Man (spirit) in disguise that makes this season for many – the worst time of the year, due to burglary, depression, homicide and suicide.

The netcharu I was shown are the eldest and earliest of our benevolent ancestors. They are very high up, so high that they are considered the founders of clans and tribes. Like true essences, it is impossible to truly possess them because it is like possessing the sun in the palm of one’s hand. The closest that we can come to possessing them, is possessing an ancestor that worked with this spirit.  And, when I say worked with this spirit, I mean possessing an ancestor that has encountered or dealt with this spirit because they were a priest, priestess or some how a devotee of that particular energy/spirit. In our ancestors’ times, a priest, priestess or devotee of a particular spirit, was one that had to learn how to work with a energy/spirit in order to overcome a trial, tribulation, etc. The energy/spirit taught them in their dreams, visions, hunches, etc. how to achieve certain goals provided they do certain things for the spirit. This same relationship exists in the Black Church today even though it is masked with rituals like sacrament, baptism and offering.

There were a lot of things that I was shown as I lay on the gurney listening to the numerous patients cry out to Death to take them from their misery.  One of the things that I learned was that, it is said that when we physically die, our ancestors (usually a familiar one) comes to us after our soul leaves the body and assists us on the other side. This I believe to be true because I was visited by a group of spirits. It was through this experience that made me conclude that the Kamau (Ancient Africans of Egypt) used animal parts and so forth to illustrate the functions and responsibilities of these numerous spirits or entities that exist around us all.   What this means is that we all have an Npu spirit – that is a spirit (or group of spirits) that guides us provide us with direction and so forth. We all have Djahuti, Hru and Hruaakhuti spirits and they are not just imaginary, archetypical beings. They were physically real, living people, with real feelings, beliefs, etc. and are real spirits with real power and guess what real taboos.  This is why they are still fond of the things of the earth or physical things. It should be noted that while we all have netcharu no two spirits are alike. Meaning, one individual’s Npu might favor pipe tobacco, while another prefers cigars.  Although, they may have different characteristics, they will both have the same purpose, which is to assist, guide and help one find their Way.

Who and what are the netcharu? They are guardian angels but not in the thinking that most people believe in the west. You see, most people in the west are under the influence that our guardian angels only appear to steer us away from harm. They completely miss the point in the Bible that when Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden, a great guardian (the archangel Jophiel) with a fiery sword was put at the entrance. Most interpret this to mean that God placed the archangel at the entrance to keep man and woman from ever returning to the Garden of Eden.  God is not that cruel.  It is my belief that God placed the archangel there to protect the Tree of Life. In others words to prevent the unrighteous from using that was so sacred wrongfully.

This is what the netcharu do, sure they steer us away from harms way but their main objective/purpose is to protect and guard the sacredness of the Spirit. How do you know when you have offended one of them and have crossed over to the Red Zone ruled by Set? Oh, everything goes wrong, you feel burned, you have nothing but problems everywhere you turn, etc., etc., etc.  Everything is out of whack! There is imbalance everywhere it seems and no peace. How do you keep from offending the netcharu? You work with your ancestors, since the netcharu have been gone for such a long time and forget how physical life can be, who help teach you the taboos as it relates to the Spirit.

1. Many will question why I included the Christian and Roman Catholic syncretism.  The reason is because there are different spiritual technologies at work. Living in the West, many of us have become accustomed to “plug and play” spiritual work based upon our intellect. This eventually leads to becoming a culture vulture, an individual that adopts the cultural ways of others without having any true understanding of the content behind the form. Since most of us have had some dealings with Christianity and/or Roman Catholicism, our spirits will be familiar with these icons. It is through these icons they can help us to understand our ancient ancestral masks.
