The Purpose of Deity Altars

1 11 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

There are a lot of people who are beginning to awake to this path and the one question I get all the time from newcomers is “Can we put the altars together?” or “Can we mix our altars with our ancestors and other spirits (deities), etc.?” Before answering this, I have to remind you of the difference between religion and spirituality.

We must remember that religion is a systematic practice that has been done over the years.  By a group of people in devotion to an entity in order to receive a particular outcome. For instance, many Christians believe that in order for Jesus/God to protect and bless them, they must attend church on a regular basis and strive to live a life absent of sin.

But, spirituality is a way of life that may or may not consists of a set of practices that focuses on aligning an individual with their Higher Self or Osar to master specific lessons in life. Spirituality is not about worshipping an entity but becoming the entity. To comprehend this perspective, it must be understood that we are all born with specific temperaments, talents, behaviors, etc., which most will can assign to a specific zodiac.  For instance, I was born under the Pisces zodiac sign and I exhibit most (if not all) of the Pisces traits of a man such as being trustworthy, loyal, sensual, psychic, attracted to the occult, etc but I also have some of the negative traits such as being smug and sarcastic, etc.

Now these are all traits that have helped me to survive but there are 11 other zodiac signs, which means that I cannot behave like a Piscean man all the time.  If I am smug to my wife, she will become highly irritated and I might find myself sleeping on the couch. If I am smug or sarcastic to my daughter, she might misinterpret my behavior and indiscriminately imitate it or think that men are supposed to act this way. So, what I have to do is learn how to transcend my zodiac. Said another way, overcome my natal personality, ego-self or Set, which is a bulk of what spirituality is about.  There are numerous ways that this can be accomplished but one of the ways is through erecting altars.

So, when an altar is built by those who are on the religious path, they will recommend that you do not combine or mix the energies because they are following the rules of their religion. Remember, religion is focused on worshipping a particular entity.  The reason these rules must be followed to the letter is usually because this is how the founders of that religion established that religion. For instance, in some denominations of Christianity, devotees are not supposed to have any images of any other divinity. Most Christian adherents will state that this is because it is considered idolatry.  The occult truth is that this is one of the rules that devotees of the entity most Christians refer to as “God” must follow to receive God’s blessings.

Mock altar to Npu (Anubis is the Kemeitc Guardian of the dead and roads.

Now, if you are setting up an altar from a spiritualist perspective.  You are free to combine and mix the energies because the entities on the altar symbolize a different aspect of your Higher Self. Remember, the Higher Self is another term for what the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung called the collective unconsciousness, which is compose of numerous archetypes. Therefore, when you choose to erect an altar to a particular entity, what you are really doing is choosing to become that entity. For instance, if a man wants to muster up some courage to talk to his boss about being considered for a promotion or raise. Then, he might erect an altar space for Hru (Horus). He would purchase red and white items and also Hru totems such as horses, bulls, rams, etc., He may meditate on these items or simple arrange them in a way that he sees fit until one day Hru seeing his commitment and devotion decide to send the man a sign synchronistically (I know I just made up that word).  Such as one of the man’s ancestors visits with him in his dreams or he happens to watching television and suddenly have an epiphany, etc. There are numerous ways that the spirits can interact with us but they are all meant to help us to become them so that we can achieve a goal, not worship them.

Therefore, if the same guy decides that he wants to work with another energy like Oset, but does not have the space, or work with Npu he can add items for Oset or Npu on the same altar space. The idea that the Hru and Oset are going to get upset because they are sharing space is basically your lower-self talking because the subconscious is extremely logical and structured.

Now eventually when you have the space you would want to build a separate altar space for them but this is only because your relationship with the energy/deity will grow and will require it. Again, it is not necessary because you are not worshipping the entity. You are worshipping yourself-to be exact your Higher Self. You are invoking the entity and trying to become them in your walking life to accomplish specific tasks.

It is important you always keep this in mind the spiritual purpose of working with deities so that you do not lose sight and fall into the religious trap and find yourself worshipping an entity outside of yourself.

Why We Do It? Is Spiritual Living Really Worth It?

30 09 2017

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Family. Let me get real with you for a minute. Sometimes being spiritually minded is a pain in the a**.

You see, when we were in the church most of us taught to do the right thing because it guarantees you a place in heaven and prevents you from going to hell.  But, now that we have gotten older, more spiritually mature.  And, we realize the Divine does not reward or punish us because Nebercher – the Lord of Everything – our Perfect Creator –  is not biased or prejudice but truly objective and does not directly get involved in human affairs. Many of us lose sight as to why we are practicing being spiritual. In other words, we have no real goal or reason to be spiritually anymore.

What makes spiritual living even more gruesome and wish you had taken the blue pill like Cipher in the film the Matrix, is when you understand.  That part of the human spirit is subconscious, which means it controls all of our actions and behaviors that it indiscriminately learned from others – both right and wrong. Indiscriminately means that like a child, our subconscious solves problems by motivating us to do what Easy and what we feel, not necessarily what is Right. Therefore, most of the problems we have in our life begin in our head because we did not learn the unbiased, impersonal, or Right Way to solve our problems.

It all comes to head if you have a nagging wife that does not understand that the quickest way to drive a man away is to nag at him by focusing on petty faults and errors. Instead of being considerate, appreciative and giving praise about the wonderful qualities that both the husband and wife have.

Or, it all comes to a head when a brooding husband does not understand that psychologically speaking he commits adultery.  If he gives attention to destructive and negative thoughts, which can easily result in sharp and harsh remarks, anger, resentment and hostility. Instead of love, appreciation and honor.

Yes, all of this spiritual stuff comes to head when you are at your workplace and you feel that you are being taken advantage of by a jealous and self-entitled coworker who does more complaining than work.

And, the list of problems goes on…

These are all challenging situations that make us question why are we trying to be spiritual and what’s the purpose of it anyway.

Don’t throw in the towel. The reward or the reason we are here practicing spirituality is for spiritual power. This spiritual power comes from the Amun Ra moment, which is why it is important to ignore the feelings that motivate you to do the Easy thing, and instead do what is Right.

 

No, doing what is Right is not always going to be easy but the more you do it. The stronger you become. This is not pie-in-sky religious babble. This is where the real power comes from, which is the reason “they” do not want you to seriously practice Kemetic spirituality.

It is important to understand that spiritual living is not like religious living. In religious living, when you have a problem or a person annoying the crap out of you. You are taught to pray to have them removed from your life or pray that God can rescue you from this annoying person. But, in spiritual living, you invoke the Power of God so that the annoying individual will change.

Does this mean that you are supposed to take everyone’s crap and just let people walk all over you? The truth is that there is no definite answer to this question. For some people they can be like Dr. Martin L. King Jr. because they have a high tolerance level but for others they have short tolerance level. Before you judge who is right or wrong in regards to their tolerance level, think of how tolerant our Creator is towards us.

In fact, think of how patient, understanding, loving, etc. our Creator is towards us. Do you think that our Perfect Creator doesn’t want to just descend to the planet and smack us and say, “You are GOD! Stop acting like a FOOL!”?

But, why doesn’t our Nebertcher do it? Because how else would we learn.
