Greetings

Truths

Truths appear in drips, streams, flows and pours. Drinking from the fountains of truth holds pleasures and benefits galore. Yep, truths poured in and truths poured out -- to constructively share. Truths sure can favorably do our lives well.

Initially, truths don’t always please our thirsty appetites. Often, though, when we allow them to rest in soak formation, to marinate and then to sink in thoroughly, our thirsts are satisfyingly quenched. Acceptance of truths adds to successful accomplishments of our action plans -- with relish.

Certainly, digesting truth proves good for our systems.

Ancestors

Hi -

For those inclined to read/view content here:

Please be mindful that the main guide that you should follow is WITHIN YOU.  I learn from others, but NOTHING and NO ONE can substitute for what you discover in your own unique, signature style, spiritual journey. 

Yes, it's helpful to learn from others -- in balance . . .

Also, sometimes I use portions of what others share -- modifying to fit what suits my unique spiritual journey . . .

How to Honor Your Ancestors 101 - YouTube -- In this video, the drift that I get from him is to only honor our bloodline relative ancestors -- NOT other ancestors that aren't in our bloodline.  I disagree with that.  My posture is to honor MY ancestors, and THE ancestors . . . . I included his videos here because I enjoyed some other things that he shared . . .

For those folks inclined, below is some in depth info to review.  I personally  haven't tried what Prince has expressed.  Perhaps, I may do so in the future.

HOW TO CONTACT YOUR ANCESTORS...WHEN YOU YOU DON'T KNOW WHO THEY ARE.
Olokun is the keeper of deep, transformative, wisdom. He is the keeper of the wisdom the ancestors.
Olokun is the ruler of the lower levels of the ocean, where sunlight cannot reach. As Atlantis sank beneath the waves, we are a people who have sunken into ancestral unconsciousness.
Ancient Knowledge is NEVER lost. What Olokun submerges...he preserves.
THE OLOKUN RITUAL FOR THE RESTORATION OF YOUR ANCESTRAL KNOWLEDGE:
On a clear vessel, draw an image of a trident.
Fill the vessel with water.
Pour salt into the palm of your hand.
(Pour the salt into the hand opposite of the one that you write with-the one you write with receives energy, the other sends it out you are adding your Ase to the ritual)
Call on Olokun, while adding the salt to the water.
Olokun lives in the dark- place a candle near the Olokun vessel to draw Olokun to your vessel.
Recite the following incantation:
THE OLOKUN SPELL FOR THE RESTORATION OF YOUR ANCESTRAL KNOWLEDGE:
Ruler of the depths, I give you honor.
Lord of the deep oceans, I give you praise.
Keeper of deep, transformative wisdom,
Please...restore my ancestral knowledge.
Owner of the secrets of the ages...
Please...accept the petition of my prayer.
Powerful Orisha of the deep oceans, you who can subdue the land.I give you honor, glory, and praise,
Please, Great Orisha...I ask that you restore my ancestral knowledge.
Keeper of the unfathomable wisdom of the ages,
Please...restore my ancestral knowledge.
All that was thought lost forever...is in fact- in your possession.
As Atlantis sank beneath the waves- so to have I sunken into ancestral unconsciousness.
With all that I am...I plead your forgiveness,
Powerful Orisha of the deep oceans, I plead for your unfathomable wisdom.
PLEASE...Great Orisha...PLEASE...
Restore my ancestral knowledge.
Modupe Great, Orisha Olokun.
Ase, Ase, Ase-ooooooooo.
YOU'LL DREAM ABOUT MERMAIDS.
If you don't see anything at first, don't get discouraged. If all you remember of your first dream the night of this ritual is PITCH
BLACK... THAT'S VERY SPECIAL.
IT MEANS THAT NOT ONLY HAS OLOKUN ACCEPTED YOUR OFFERING...
IT MEANS YOU'VE ASTRAL PROJECTED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN AND ARE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE DEITY.
YOU MAY EXPECT TO DREAM ABOUT SOME OCEAN-RELATED SCENERY THE NIGHT OF THIS RITUAL.
PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU SEE...AND WHO SPEAKS TO YOU IN YOUR DREAM.
YOU'LL DEFEAT FEROCIOUS SEA MONSTERS...IN THE DEEP, DEEP, DARK.
The sea monsters are indicative of the hidden aspects of our lives, the parts that we keep hidden away...the deeper the lair...the more ferocious the sea monster.
The Lord of the Deep is your help. You win every single battle.
MERMAID WATERS:
THE MERMAIDS WILL BE FAR AWAY AT FIRST.
THEY'LL GET CLOSER EVERY TIME YOU GO TO SLEEP.
EVENTUALLY...THEY TALK TO YOU.
THEY'RE CHATTY. THEY'LL HAVE A LOT TO SAY.
YOU MAY NOT UNDERSTAND A WORD OF IT- AS SHE'S SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS.
It will make sense to you during your waking hours.
THE MERMAID REPRESENTS DRAMATIC TRANSFORMATION:
There are two ways in which mermaids symbolize transformation.
1) Their own transformation from human to fish.
Out of the water they look like the rest of us. In the water their legs are magically transformed into a tail, their skin transformed into scales.
2) Mermaids can also be associated with death.
The lore surrounding mermaids is that their songs were said to lure sailors to their doom.
Death in a dream RARELY means physical death, It's a symbol of...
DRAMATIC TRANSFORMATION.
On land, and in your waking hours, expect the currents to bring some DEEP "merpeople" into your life- that will key you in to some ancient history, directly connected to your ancestry.
Don't be lured off course! It is important to remain on YOUR path and not theirs.
The appearance of the mermaids indicate that you are going through a MAJOR TRANSFORMATION....AND IT WILL BE VERY EMOTIONAL.
BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE DEALING WITH ANCIENT ANCESTRAL KNOWLEGE...IT'S DEEP.
EXPECT A VISIT...FROM MERMAIDS.

This is beyond deep. It's nuclear!

Elyaas SeifAllah

THE 12 ZODIACS WHICH WERE CHANGED TO THE 12 DISCIPLES BY THE MELANITE KEMETIC COPTIC PREIST, WHO MADE THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION FOR CONSTANTINE, ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE 12 PSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS OR 12 DISCIPLINES OF THE MELANIN RICH MIND. THERE ARE ACTUALLY 13 ZODIAC SIGNS... THE 13TH ZODIAC IS HIDDEN ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE...

THE 13TH ZODIAC SIGN IS "THE SERPENT BEARER" OR THE CHRIST, THE MASTER... WHICH IS A REPRESENTATION OF THE ONE WHO HAS MASTERED AND SUBDUED ALL 12 DISCIPLES, ALL 12 ZODIACS, ALL 12 DISCIPLINES OR ALL 12 PSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS, OF THEIR OWN MELANIN RICH MIND... SO WE ARE NEITHER EXCLUSIVELY LEO, PISCES, LIBRA, ETC...

WE ARE ACTUALLY ALL 12 ZODIAC SIGNS IN ONE... ONCE WE BECOME MASTER OVER ALL 12 DISCIPLES/DISCIPLINES/ZODIACS, MASTERING OVER ALL 12 PSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS OF OUR MELANIN RICH MIND, WE BECOME THE ALL IN ONE, THE 13TH ONE, THE MASTER OVER OUR UNIVERSE, THE CHRIST, THE SERPENT BEARER...

YOU CAN SEE THE DEVIL PLAY THIS OUT IN HIS COURT SYSTEM... YOU HAVE 12 JURORS REPRESENTING THE 12 PSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS OF THE COLLECTIVE MIND OF HIS SOCIETY WHO ARGUE AND DEBATE OVER ONE'S INNOCENCE OR GUIILT AND THEN YOU HAVE THE MASTER, THE SERPANT BEARER, THE JUDGE WHO PRESIDES AND RULES OVER THE 12 JURORS... SEE THEY USE YOUR ESOTERIC AND EXOTERIC KNOWLEDGE AGAINST YOU, BUT YET CALL IT WITCHCRAFT AND GOT YOU SCARED OF IT...

13 WISDOM... 13 LOVE 13 KNOWLEDGE 13 RA-SPECT
HOTEP GODS AND GODDESSES...
