Damn! Aren’t You Tired of Trying to Overcome Someday? (Why the 60s Failed)

22 02 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

First, let me start by saying one more time that I am grateful for the sacrifices and contributions that those before us have made. It is the main reason we are able to talk and express ourselves freely. In fact, I recall Brother Bobby Hemmit saying in one lecture how because of the Civil Rights Movement, he could go any  occult and metaphysical shop in the south, which could not be achieved had it not been for desegregation.  Now, that being said, let’s use this time and platform to talk real.

So, every time it is Black History Month, after going through the list of names of people and the contributions they made. Eventually we come to that period in time that leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouth, the Civil Rights era where we see the same images of people having fire hoses turned against them, dogs attack them and literally folks being beat down for basic rights.  For some strange odd reason (or not) after listing all of the sacrifices and contributions that were made, Black History Month celebrated in most churches and communities around the country always seems to conclude with us all singing (all together…yes I am a bit cynical today) “We Shall Overcome.”

You might get mad with me but so what. It needs to be said. It always concludes with folks begging to be treated equal.

When we folks get it? After all of the contributions, all of the sacrifices, all of the inventions, all of the advancements, etc. If you still have to sing, “We shall overcome…” They are not going to let you OVERCOME.

I mean seriously…am I the only one who can see this? Why are folks so concerned with trying to get other people to accept and respect them? I mean, when you see a bum on the street begging for change, do you respect them as your equal? No. You respect them as a human being but that’s it. If you respect them as your equal, then take them inside of your home with your family them.  If you have commonsense you will not, but this is what folks keep doing every year by asking to be accepted by compromising their ancestral principles.

Now, let’s talk spiritually plain.  The reason folks keep singing this and coming back asking about “What happened in the 1960s?” Is because a type of soul loss occurred. Yeah, folks lost their mind because it was a traumatic era but it has never been recovered because we keep looking at history from a western cultural perspective.

In western society, the purpose of history is to tell his-story which is simply a list of names, dates and faces.  We read and study history from a western cultural perspective much like we do with Kemetic, Akan, Yoruba, Kongo, etc. history. We don’t study history from our own cultural perspective, which is to invoke it by talking to our Ancestors who lived during that time.

Family. In the Story of Osar, Hru (Heru, Horus) defeats Set because Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti, Thoth) performs a ceremony that allows the deceased Osar (Ancestor) to speak.

The reason the 60s, 70s and every decade afterward has failed us is because our folks did not invoke their Ancestors and Spirit Guides. If they had invoked their Ancestors and Guides, our spirits of the dead would have reminded them just like Osar reminded the tribunal of the evils that were perpetrated on folks for 400+ years prior to the 1960s.  Instead, folks want to forgive and forget that slavery ever occurred, yet complain about how things are not fair in contemporary times.  If they had invoked the ancestors, the ancestors would have given them dreams of deals being made in secret, etc.

It is interesting that folks are willing to forgive and forget slavery so easily yet, they can’t even forgive or forget the $20 they lent a family member or friend.

HRU (Heru, Horus)

Family, we need to change this. If you know how to work with your ancestors and spirit guides, you need to start really communicating with them because if not. These people who are chasing the selfish American dream are going to lead everyone off the cliff.  This is the time we need our ancestors and spirit guides foresight and insight more than ever.  The only way we as Hru can reclaim our birthright is with the help of our Osares.

 





Why They Don’t Want You To Remember You Are A God/Goddess?

20 02 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

I hope that you are all doing well upon reading this post but this is something I have been struggling with for a while.  And, I thought it would be a great time to discuss it as we come to another end of another Black History Month.

So, let me begin by saying that I am grateful for all of the contributions that were made by our historical ancestors such as Fredrick Douglas, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth and the list goes on, but question. Why does Black History begin with our ancestors as captives in this country?

I mean, it is a known fact that majority of our African ancestors who were abducted, kidnapped, enslaved and brought to North America were from Central and West Africa. So, why don’t “they” start Black History stories by stating that Europeans abducted, kidnapped and enslaved people from the Kongo Kingdom, Akan Kingdom, the Kingdom of Benin, the Wagadu (Kingdom of Ghana) and so on?

Again, I am grateful for the inventions made by Garret Morgan, Charles Drew, George Washington Carver, etc. but why don’t “they” state in the beginning that “they” abducted, kidnapped and enslaved scientists, engineers, artists, musicians, inventors, doctors, priests and priestesses, etc.? Instead of alluding that these Garret Morgan, Charles Drew, George Washington Carver, and many others were an exception to the rule?

I mean, I tried watching Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History twice and I simply had to turn it off because it was not a guide but it was the same black history propaganda that you find in most history books.  Please note, I am not knocking the special but simply stating that this is not our purpose.

So, it made me ask why they do not want to talk about real Black History, and the answer that came back is because a lot of people simply do not want to know.

It is easier to accept that Black History began in this country as a slave because to admit that it doesn’t would mean that we were tribal Africans, which in the minds of a lot of people conjures up stereotypical images of black people dancing around fire. In other words, it is easier to accept that Black History began with our ancestors beings slaves because folks don’t want to be African.

And, I get it. It makes sense. Who wants to admit to being an African who lived in a mud hut back then? Who wants to claim that they descended from a people that simply warred and sold their own into slavery? Who wants to align themselves with a “people” who had gold practically falling out of the sky, yet they walked around not valuing it but instead would fight over trinkets? Who wants to align themselves with a people that simply stick pins in dolls and focus more on revenge then on spiritual development? No one does. At least not anyone who is in their right mind.

But, why admit that Black History began before slavery? Because it ties us back to Africa by indicating that our ancestors were members of a tribal nation, who are the descendants of the people that migrated to Central and West Africa from Kemet (Ancient Egypt), initially out of Kush (Ancient Nubia/Ethiopia).

In other words, the reason “they” always start Black History when our recent ancestors were enslaved is to make us forget how old we are and thereby forget our true identity as Gods and Goddesses.

Do you know that the only reason Garret Morgan, Charles Drew, George Washington Carver, and many others were able to advance is because they were given a chance? Please note, I am not trying to take anything away from them and I am not claiming that they did not have any struggles that they had to overcome because I know they did, but think about this.  What would happen if we were all given equal and equitable opportunities? What would happen if we were all given the same chance? Yes, the world would change instantly.

So, when Dr. Carter G. Woodson started Black History week, it served a purpose but now.  Black History month is simply a carrot on the stick to make us chase after the “American Dream” of being accepted as equals but we need to realize.

We are not equal.

There is no one in this world that has undergone the same experience that we have gone through. No one will ever be equal to us and why would we want to be equal to someone in the first place? To be equal means to be ordinary and to be ordinary means to be like everyone else, a follower.

So, where did we get this notion that we should be followers?

From religion.  Religion is a tool for social control and slavery began when our ancestors chose to believe that God existed outside of themselves and not within. We can blame Christianity as much as we want to but the facts are that our ancestors were prepped to be slaves before Christian and Islamic missionaries step foot on African soil.

What I am saying is that we have all been fooled into thinking that slavery was about particular period in time where our recent ancestors were forced to labor in this country and abroad. No, Family. Slavery is a system designed to make people forget who they truly are by taking away their will and desire to be free.

Family. We are Gods and Goddesses, which means all we need to do is decide that we want to do something and do it. If it works for us and helps others that is all that we need.  We don’t need anyone to validate what we do because we are the first to do it, hence the meaning of a God and Goddess. It is time to stop studying history and start invoking it. Instead of just teaching our daughters about Madame C.J. Walker, how about we start teaching our daughters how to be a Goddess like Hatshepsut?  Instead of teaching our sons about Seqenenre Dao who fought against the Hyskos?





It’s Not Easy Being A God/Goddess (Why We Work With Spirits)

7 01 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I just wanted to offer you some words of encouragement that my spirit guide just shared with me and it is that it is not easy being a god or goddess. Just because you are on a spiritual path does not mean things get easier.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

In fact, life for human beings is hard because we are restricted to time and space. If you look at the Maa Aankh (above) and think about how we all incarnated to this physical plane (TASETT).  We see that as children, prior to incarnating to the physical plane, we came out of the spiritual realm (KAMTA) and from the Amun Ra moment, which means we were all, all knowing and powerful.  We could see everything and do anything because we did not have a physical body.  Then, as soon as we were physically born through the Khepera moment.  We slowly and surely lose all our wisdom and power as we grow older.  Then, as soon as we become fully accustomed to our physical body, we totally forget who we are and become conditioned to life in TASETT (the physical realm). So, the living have the physical means to make change but through the birthing and conditioning process lose the knowledge and wisdom to implement change.

For ancestral spirits and spirit guides, there existence isn’t that much better either because when people physical die. They are no longer fretted by their physical body and are able to express themselves and go anywhere freely because they have returned to their spiritual nature. But, in order to create physical change they need a body, so they lose the ability to do this. Not to mention the fact, that if they do not have anyone who remembers them, they do not receive offerings regularly.  So benevolent ancestors and spirit guides acquire the knowledge and wisdom to implement change but lack the physical means to do so.

For gods and goddesses it gets worse because most gods and goddesses were once upon a time human beings. But, after many successful incarnations they no longer need to enter the wheel of reincarnation.  When gods and goddesses return they must go through the birthing and conditioning stage, but because of their high and exalted status.   They are able to retain their knowledge and wisdom as benevolent ancestors and spirit guides, and use it beyond the Khepera moment. Since they have gone through the birthing and conditioning phase, unlike benevolent ancestor and spirit guides, they are able to implement physical change. Since gods and goddesses have the knowledge and wisdom of benevolent ancestral spirits and spirit guides, combined with the physical means of the living.  Most gods and goddesses only return to the physical realm when great calamities strikes and when they physically die. Gods and goddesses are remembered as learned men and women.

However, life for a god and goddess is hard because usually people do not recognize them when they are walking amongst them. As a result, most gods and goddesses are either robbed, wrongly persecuted and at times murdered by the very people they are trying to save.

This is the reason it is important for gods and goddesses not to get too attached to this physical world.

Therefore, we venerate our benevolent ancestors and spirit guides, so that they can share their knowledge and wisdom with us.  While we through our physical body make the necessary physical changes.

I say all this to say, that if you are experiencing any type of obstacle, know that it is meant to remind you that you are a god or goddess.  Remember who you are.

Why they Attack Kemetic Shamans/Spiritualists?

3 09 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, I still run into people who confuse the Kemetic religion with Kemetic spirituality and do not understand that the two are drastically different. Consequently, some of these individuals staunchly criticize Kemetic spirituality and claim that it is a fad, when in fact they were not practicing Kemetic spirituality at all. So, before explaining the difference between the two, let’s understand the difference between religion and spirituality.

The Difference between Religion and Spirituality

Religion is basically a set of beliefs that over time became norms, rules, tradition and superstition. To the point that you hear people saying don’t do this or you will be punished or do this and you will be rewarded.

Colosseum & Mega Churches

Colosseum & Mega Churches

Spirituality is different from religion in the sense that it is a personal understanding about Divine. Spirituality usually involves understanding how one’s mind works and how to reach one’s greatest potential, so it employs a number of practices such as divination, meditation, spell work, altar work, prayer, rituals, etc.  Spirituality cannot be mass produced and does not follow a cookie-cutter scheme, meaning one remedy does not work for everyone. The other thing, shamans and spiritualists usually don’t follow others because they have learned to trust God within them over what someone else says. Unlike religion where you are given a definition of who God is and is not, in spirituality you discover God from within and you spend the rest of your life trying to align yourself with this indwelling intelligence.

It is important to understand that religion is a great tool for some things but ineffective for others. For instance, religion is great for instilling beliefs into children and people who have no self-control or self-discipline. Religion is great for reminding children and people who lack self-discipline of the importance of being moral.  But, religion does a horrible job at explaining an individual’s destiny because it is not personalized. This is the reason if you go to church and state that you have a problem. They give the same cookie cutter or blanket remedy, which is to pray or if you are Catholic to say Hail Mary’s, etc.  Spirituality is tailored to an individual’s needs but in order for spirituality to work.  There has to be a clear understanding of the Divine within, which means understanding one’s mind.

Kemetic Spirituality is Indigenous Thinking

That being said, the Kemetic people initially did not have a religion. A religion later evolved from their spiritual beliefs and practices because over time, people started needing rules since they started lacking self-control due to foreign influence.

Now there are a lot of Kemetic religious followers who tell people (especially newcomers) that they need to set up an altar and give offerings regularly to their ancestors, gods and goddesses, in order to get something. First, this is wrong in so many ways because it is a cookie-cutter remedy especially not knowing the individual’s needs. In general, it is recommended to start with altar work but for some people this might be confusing and it may deter their spiritual progress. Some people may be too open to the point that they are picking up all types of influences. For instance, a lot of people coming from the Pentecostal denomination are open to spirits via the Pentecostal movement of receiving the Holy Ghost, but the lack of metaphysics makes them wrongly see any spirit that speaks-in-tongues as the Holy Ghost. This is the reason these churches have not spiritually evolved.

Informing a newcomer to build an altar and give offerings without explaining why is truly a religious perspective (and western one at that).  To think that some entity outside of our being is going to give us something because we gave it a cup of beer or some fruit is crazy.

I always ask when I come across these people with this thinking, “How did you get things before you made offerings to the god/goddess and ancestors?”

Most people who take this religious path do not understand the question because they fail to see that they have superimposed their Christian or Islamic beliefs on to their understanding of the Kemetic tradition. They usually walk away saying that Kemetic spirituality does not work but they were not practicing Kemetic spirituality, they were practicing an aspect (or someone’s interpretation) of the Kemetic religion.

The Kemetic shaman and spiritualist, understanding that the Divine resides within and it all deals with the power the of their mind, knows that we each have three parts to our being: the BA (Higher Self)/Superconscious symbolized as the white Hedjet crown and personified as Osar (Osiris), sahu (lower self)/subconscious symbolized as the red Deshret crown and personified as Set, and Ab/conscious symbolized as the unified Pschent crown personified as Hru (Horus).

Most of what we have learned from birth is governed and overseen by our Set, so when we want something or try to do something new and different. It is our Set who steps in and playa hates by discouraging us from reaching our goals and potential.

So, say you are a guy who wants to get a woman to be in a relationship with you. You pray, meditate, do a spell, make a sigil and/or do a ritual one or two times to impress it on your subconscious and move the Universe so that you get a woman. Well, it is your Set who immediately gets on your left shoulder and says, “It is not going to work” based upon your past experiences and also because Set does not like change.  In fact, most people fail to accomplish their goals because as soon as they say what they want.  Their Set comes in and discourages them from doing so.  In fact, as soon as you do the meditation, spell, sigil and/or ritual and start thinking about it. Your Set is going to appear and try to discourage you by filling you with doubt. From a psychological perspective, if your goals (seeds) are not deeply impressed upon your mind.  They are on the surface and therefore superficial, which exposes it to winds of change in TASETT.  This is why Set is able to discourage so many of us from achieving our goals.

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

TASETT – The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our lower self and subconscious.

That’s why there is an alternative.

If you pray, do the meditation, make a sigil, spell and/or do a ritual repetitively, then you impress the goal on your sahu(subconscious), which in turn is forced to hand it over to your BA (Superconscious). This means, do not think about the goal or how it is going to manifest.  Just know that you are putting in the work for it to manifest and by Maa (Cause and Effect) it will.  This process is referred to as sowing seeds into KAMTA-the Black Lands (which is another term for the Superconscious) because KAMTA is symbolized as deep dark soil, hence a visual pun to the deep recesses of our mind, so that your Osar (Osiris/Higher Self) works on it.

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.

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 or Superconscious.

Understand.  When you think about your goal especially after doing spiritual work.  You are in essence telling your Set to work on the goal based upon what you have learned thus far, which it cannot because your personal knowledge is limited. It is equivalent to putting on a pot of water and watching it come to a boil, which if you stare at the pot. It seems that it never will. You have to do the work and forget about it, which gives the goal to Osar and this is how your Ab or conscious mind (personified as Hru) gets into the fight and we see the epic battle between Hru and Set.  It is your Hru’s responsibility to maintain this focus and ignore the influences of Set.

Hru Osar and Set

Now to assist your Hru you can also employ the aid of Osar’s allies, which are the guardian spirits commonly called gods and goddesses. The angels, deities, gods, goddesses, spirit guides, guardian spirits, etc. are all connected to the same source or KAMTA. In other words, they are archetypes or emissaries of your Superconscious that focus on specific tasks.  For instance, Npu (Anubis) is the name of the Superconscious that opens the way, finds opportunities and lost things, etc. So, if you are a guy who wants to get a woman to be in a relationship with you and you want to employ Npu’s help. You may light a candle and give Npu an offering of chocolate hearts, knowing that it is your Superconscious that is still doing the work.  Your Set is still going to appear but now with the added imagery and symbols that are being impressed upon your subconscious, it is harder to be discouraged and easier to keep the symbols in mind, thus ignore Set’s influences and resist the temptation to lust after your results by thinking about it.

The difference between Kemetic religion and Kemetic spirituality is that the so-called deities in Kemetic Spirituality are tools to assist you in control of your subconscious and unifying it with your Superconscious and conscious intent. They are not objects to be worshipped, which is the reason most Kemetic shamans and spiritualists have a host of deities from other cultures as well.

The basis of Kemetic spirituality is forcing Set (the sahu/subconscious or lower self) to work with Osar (the BA/Superconscious or Higher Self) and Hru (the Ab/conscious or mid-self or Soul). So, if you are serious about practicing it, you really need to study how your mind works. Learning about the Kemetic history, the Kemetic  legends, etc. is helpful but it cannot help you if you do not have a reference point, which is YOU.

Kemetic Spirituality is based upon the mind and anyone who seriously practices Kemetic spirituality would never go back to organized religion because it is a different way of thinking.  Most who practice Kemetic shamanism and Kemetic spirituality do not live their lives by a set of rules because they don’t fear that by doing so they are going to be punished or rewarded, which is childish thinking.

One of the beauties of Kemetic spirituality is that it can be explained scientifically, which is important in this western society that places major emphasis on the intellect. I have nullified and completely dismantled more religious arguments against my practice by simply explaining that what I do by having an altar, doing a spell, etc. is accessing my Higher Mind; and get religious people to see that they go to church out of a tradition of guilt, fear and superstition, and not because they desire to do so.  Simply put, if something is good for you, you don’t have to beg people to try and do it like many religious people beg people to attend religious service or worship “God” from the corners and pulpits.

This is why once an individual crosses into the realm of Kemetic Spirituality, there is no way they can unlearn what they know about the mind after they have learned it. In other words, there is no way they can return back to religious thinking and this is what traditional African thinking is about.  Now you see that the reason so many people in the west are against indigenous spirituality is because, we don’t make good slaves.
