Esoteric Knowledge 101: Monetary system(Part 1 of 3)

Symbolism1...

I’ve always been interested in the unknown.  Things that are associated with the occult. Some people get freaked out when they hear the word occult.  But occult knowledge is basically the knowledge of human consciousness and how it operates,and knowledge of natural law. As well as the unseen universal spiritual laws which govern the consequences of human behavior.  And for the past fifteen years I’ve studied symbology,numerology and etymology. I’ve learned quite a bit from different authors,teachers and even Youtube channels. There are a lot of people from different walks of life that have helped me awaken my consciousness. Most notably I’ve learned from people like Dr Suzar,Bobby Hemmitt,Dr Phil Valentine,Brother Panic,KT the Arch Degree,Naazir Ra,Osei Kufour, Jay Dyer and Mark Passio.  As well as YouTube channels by Bro Sanchez,Black Child,Nu Rebel Entertainment,Truthiracy3,RFG Chosen One,The Outer Dark,da13thsun and Lifting The Veil. Throughout our daily lives we are surrounded by symbolism.  Many times we don’t even think about  the symbols around us.  Many of the symbols come from our African ancestors and how they saw the world around them.   This can be found in Kemetic texts thousands of years ago.  Long before any European influence. Many years later Europeans(Greeks,Romans) changed some of the symbols and names of the deities as well.  All the images we see on television and films are full of symbols.  I’ve always liked to know the origin of words and why we use certain words.  In this series three-part series I wanted to cover some of them you use in your everyday lives.  I wanted to start with money and the words associated with it.

Esoteric...

Sun and Moon....

Much of the symbols we see have to deal with nature and the solar system.  While Europeans were concerned about philosophy our ancestors understood the ecosystem and structure of life.  Our ancestors studied the sun,moon and stars and based the Zodiac sings on astrology.  Since it has to do with nature,this is the reason that cash is green(nature).

Gold Coins...

Our ancestors believed that the Sun represented the male principle.  And the Moon was the female principle.  Which is why you have gold(Sun) coins and silver(Moon) coins. The Sun produces light(light) so is looked at as the father.  The Moon is represented as a female and associated with the calm and nurturing darkness of night. Which is why night is called EVEning. As in Adam and Eve.

Juno Moneta...

Juno Moneta is the mythical Roman Goddess is where the word “money” comes from. Juno is Janus which represents the two facing heads of time.  Janus is how we get the month January.  Even the word MONTH gets it’s name from the MOON.  Think of it has the beginning of January(Winter solstice) and the ending in June(Summer solstice).  It’s all about the balance of nature and the changing of seasons. This is the reason that scales are used for measuring money.

Maat...

This comes from our ancient African(Kemetic) Goddess Maat.

 

Lady Justice....jpg

Of course Europeans stole the idea and created their version the so-called Lady of Justice.  I find it interesting that they have stole so much from other cultures yet still haven’t created a system of justice.  Go figure!

Cash flow...

 

It’s often said that money doesn’t grow on trees.  But since money is made from trees it actually does. But you can’t grow a tree without water.  Which is why money is always associated with water.  We’ve all heard the term “cash flow” and “liquidation”.  And water current as in “currency”. They say the Moon can alter a person’s mood.  When strange things happen late at night some people say “it must be a full moon”.  The Moon can give off a certain energy.  Our ancestors believed it could effect the ocean and rivers. When water is flowing it’s controlled by the banks right?  River banks?  Which is why we use a banking system.

Thoth...

Many of you are probably familiar with the ancient African(Kemetic) deity Thoth or Djehuti.(above). In artwork he was usually pictured as a man with the head of an Ibis.  He was looked at as the Kemetic God of knowledge,wisdom,meditation and reason. His wife was Maat.  He is usually seen carrying a caduceus,as in the picture above.

Caduceus1...

The caduceus has two serpents crawling up the staff.  The two serpents represent the duality of nature.  The symbol is still used today my the medical industry.

Hermes2...

Once again,thousands of years later when the Greeks came to Kemet they started changing the names of the deities.  They came up with the Greek God Hermes. Hermes was known as the messenger for the Gods. And the conductor of the dead and protector merchants.  When they speak about the history of medicine they always mention Hermes to represent for the Greco-Roman era.  No mention of the African origin.  No surprise there.

Dollar sign1....jpgSerpents...

But the caduceus is also where you get the dollar sign ($).  The dollar sign is nothing but a serpent crawling up a staff.  the reason the serpent is used alot is because our ancestors believe they represented wisdom and enlightenment.

Third Eye2...

Third Eye1.....jpg

It all comes from the THRID EYE of enlightenment and the pineal gland.

Wadjet.....jpg

The Kemetic deity Wadjet is also represents as a serpent.  It’s all interconnected on so many levels.  I could go even deeper but I think you get the idea.  I just wanted to show you some of the symbolism associated with money.

 

Knowledge is Power (My Library part 2)

Book Collection3..

I got a really great response when I did a post called My Library back in May.  I had a few people ask me what other books I had.  So I thought I’d list some of the books I have.  This is a list..but not all the books I own.  I’d also like my subscribers to list what books they have in their library. And also any books they would recommend for good reading.

Nappy Hair is…Hair of The Gods!

Whippa

Epidemically around the world, hundreds of millions of Nappy People are afflicted with full-blown AANS, ­”Acquired Anti-Nappy Syndrome.” While no nappy person is born with it, they acquire it from their parents and family. AANS victims assault their hair with scorching metal combs and grease, frying each nappy strand until it is straight, to imitate the straight limp hair and hairstyles of Caucasians. In the process, some burn their hair and scalps. Others assault their hair with “chemical relaxers” (sodium or calcium hydroxide) which are so dangerous and poisonous that it burns the scalp shortly after applied, causing blisters and even permanent scalp and hair damage if left on too long or used too often. Additionally, chemicals from these relaxers are absorbed into the bloodstream; they are carcinogenic and can even cause birth defects. And since nappy hair keeps growing out as nappy as ever, the assault must be periodically repeated to maintain artificial straightness. Thus the hair is repeatedly damaged, forced to be what it is not, forced with “lye,” to lie by lying straight. The scalps attached are likewise repeatedly damaged, by exposure to, and absorption of applied poisons.

But the worse damage appears to go unnoticed or even unacknowledged since this has become accepted “normal” behavior; this is the damage to the psyches which own the scalps. This psychological damage is “Acquired Anti-Nappy Syndrome,” a form of self-rejection and self-hatred. The outward manifestation of this inner dis-ease is the War on Nappy Hair. AANS perpetuates and holds this war in place. The War on Nappy Hair was taken to such extremes, that in some Caribbean islands during the 1980s, not only was it illegal for Blacks to have locked hair, but if they dared display it in public, they could be arrested or even shot and killed on sight by the police! ­who were Black themselves! And nappy foreigners sporting dredlocks, attempting to visit these areas, were detained at airports and not permitted to stay in the country unless they wore wigs or hats to hide their locks.

AANS is rampant among the Nappy
only in Euro-centered, Euro-imitative societies

This means practically the whole world. Thus around the world, Nappy People have been successfully conditioned by their European colonizers to reject or scorn everything that makes them unique as Afrikan people; their sable skin of varying beautiful hues, full sensuous lips, broad noses, Afrikan culture, Afrikan names, and their divine nappy hair -spiraling hair expressing the divine Spiral Principle of Creation. The dictionary (like everything in these societies) promotes AANS by demeaning key words which commonly relate to Afrikan people. Example: “kinky,” like the word “black,” is associated with undesirable characteristics. By the same token, key words commonly relating to white people are elevated, thus “straight,” like the word “white,” is associated with desirable characteristics. Reflecting this attitude, the literature in the boxes of “chemical hair relaxers” refer to straighter hair as “fine,” and nappiest hair as “coarse.”

Whippa3

While it is mainly women that show the visible evidence of AANS, nappy men are just as afflicted; their compliments and attention seem to favor women wearing straightened hair; or perhaps they have little choice since AANS-afflicted women are everywhere. They are the overwhelming majority. AANS is also evident with Nappy Men today, though not as rampant as it was from the early 1900s to the 1970s.

It’s hard work to keep all that nappy hair straight. It’s time consuming as well, wasting countless hours that can be productively used in nurturing self-knowledge and self-respect. For who will respect you if you don’t respect yourself? If 90% of whites were always perming up their straight hair to imitate kinky hair, this would clearly broadcast the statement that they don’t like themselves (self-hatred); and are rejecting part of themselves. Furthermore, keeping nappy hair straight is COSTLY. In America alone, Black people annually spend billions, that’s right ­billions of dollars on Black hair care at a time when Black colleges, businesses and organizations are facing financial ruin.1 This stands as a shameful witness to the success of the campaign to turn Afrikans against their own natural traits and thus against themselves.

Ether

Furthermore, AANS damaged hair is probably destroyed in its ability to transmit energy or be antennae. Instead of tuning into higher vibrations, such enslaved, maligned hair probably tunes into lower energies or likely, no energy at all, since it is cooked, hence dead.

India1

The good news is that there is increasing evidence
that many among the Nappy are healing from
AANS;

they are accepting and loving their natural spiral-hair, particularly as they awaken to knowledge of their true history, true culture, and true selves, ­and reject the false, anti-Afrikan history taught to them in anti-Afrikan school systems established by anti-Afrikan people. Fortunately, AANS and its outward symptoms are not permanent. As fresh new virgin hair grow out of those poisoned scalps, so can AANS exit forever.

Dredlocks were formerly abhorred by Nappy Americans.

The term itself is derived from “dread,” for locked hair was considered “dreadful” ! British soldiers coined the term “dreadlocks” during Jamaica’s colonial period, from the soldiers’ attempts to oppress the Afrikan Maroons who revolted against slavery. Now, not only is locked hair accepted, it’s even fashionable. In fact, people desiring instant long locks can now buy pre-made locks of any length or thickness, made from human hair. Thus a day is surely comin’ when Blacks stop regarding nappy hair as “bad hair,” and straighter hair as “good hair.” They will have completely thrown off the negative racist conditioning causing them to imitate their colonizers at the expense of their self respect. As a result, Acquired Anti-Nappy Syndrome will be healed. Manufacturers of hot combs and relaxers will go out of business. And Nappy People will end the War on their Nappy Hair. Once more they will esteem their precious Nappy Hair as the ancients did, ­as the spiraling “Hair of the Gods.

Be Thankful for your Melanin

Dark skin2...

Your brain and body can’t function without Black Melanin! Few people know what Melanin, the pigment that colors the skin & hair, is found in almost every organ of the body and is necessary in order for the brain and nerves to operate, the yes to see, and the human body to reproduce! At the core of your brain is found the “locus coeruleus,” a structure that is BLACK because it contains large amounts of (neuro) Melanin which is essential for it to operate! In fact, all the most crucial brain structures are heavily melanized! Melanin in the brain increases from the lower primates and reaches its peak in the BLACK HUMAN. “All humans possess this Black internal brain evidence of their common Black African Origin. The All Black neuromelanin nerve tract of the brain is profound proof that the human race is a Black race, with many variations of Black, from Black-Black to White-Black, all ineranally rooted in a vast sea of Brain Blackness.” Dr. Richard King * Melanin is the chemical key to life itself! * It is the major organizing molecule for living systems! * It’s found everywhere! -in animals, plants (that’s why raisins are brown), soil, oceans, clouds even stars & comets! * It is essentially linked to the DNA of the genes! * It shows the potential to reproduce itself!

Black Melanin is necessary in order for humans to reproduce! Melanin is present at the inception of life: a Melanin sheath covers both the sperm and the egg! In the human embryo, the melanocytes (skin pigment cells), brain and nerve cells all originate from the same place; the neural crest. Melanocytes resemble nerve cells and are essential for conveying energy. When Melanin is missing or insufficient in the ectoderm of the early embryo (blastula),this causes the mother to lose her baby; in the case of whites, a defective baby is produced. Black Melanin is the super absorber of all forms of energy. It has “black hole” properties. It can convert light to sound and back again! It stores, transforms and conducts energy! The color of Black is the perfect absorber of light and all energy frequencies, giving Black Melanin these properties! Thus scientists describe Melanin as acting like a “black hole.” Melanin can rearrange its chemical structure to absorb ALL wavelengths of energy (sunlight, X-rays, music, radar) and can transmute and store this energy for later use! In The Isis Papers, Dr. Cress Welsing writes that Melanin gives us the ability to use our bodies as direct connections with he God Force, the source of all Energy -like plugging a cord into a wall socket. It also gives our hair antennae-like ability.

How does Melanin cause racial differences? The science of Genetics shows that Blacks can produce all races but it is impossible for a brown, yellow or white race to produce a black race. A Japanese scientist showed that inside melanocytes (pigment cells) are tiny packets called melanosomes that contain melanin. The four stages in the maturing of these melanosomes counts for racial differences: Stage 1: The melanosome is empty & doesn’t have the machinery to make melanin.

Stage 2: The melanosome has the machinery to make melanin, but is empty
of melanin.
Stage 3: The machinery is there and the melasosome is half filled with
melanin.
Stage 4: The machinery is there and the melanosome is completely filled
with melanin.
Whites have mainly stages 1 & 2, whereas all people of color have
melanin, with Blacks having more of stage 4.

Other amazing facts about Black Melanin:

* Melanin granules are “central computers” and may analyze and initiate
body responses without reporting to the brain! * Melanin slows aging & protects you from damming effects of sunlight. The darker your skin (genetically) the less it ages. Thus whites often have wrinkled skin in there 30s while Blacks often have smooth, unwrinkled skin even in “old” age. * All people of color have Melanin circulating in the blood due to spillage from the melanosomes (Melanin packets). *People containing high levels of Melanin (mainly Blacks) will always show a positive test for the use of marijuana! The chemical species found in the urine which indicates someone’s use of marijuana is also found in the urine of Blacks! * The Melanin molecule is so stable that it has been found in 150-million-year-old dinosaur fossils! It is highly resistant to chemical and physical analysis, this its precise structure is unknown!

“BLACKNESS” is a divine, cosmic principle of the Universe. BLACK is the meaning of Kam or Khem -the name which the ancient Egyptians called themselves. From this word we get “Chemistry,” the study of the building blocks of Life. Life is founded upon CARBON, the Black element present in all living matter. Black carbon atoms link to form Black Melanin, which has “Black Hole” properties! Black Holes are found at the center of our own galaxy and countless others. In physics, a “Black Body” is known to be a perfect absorber and perfect radiator of all forms of light and energy. This “Black Body Radiation” is at work in the electron, as shown by Nobel prize winner, Richard Feynman. The electron is responsible for ALL “Khem-ical” changes in matter. It has been present since the creation of the universe. The scientist, Jean Charaon proved that the electron has all the properties of the Black Hole, plus it exchanges “Black Photons” with other electrons, enabling it to continuously accumulate data. This means that if we view the electron as a carrier of memory, it has experienced everything in creation since the very beginning. Blackness is fundamental to the operation of the universe of energy. God is the Giver of All Energy: “Blackness” (not darkness) allows the perfect reception of all wavelengths of Energy.

Melanin gives Black people superior physical, mental & spiritual ability. Melanin refines the nervous system in such a way that messages from the brain reach other areas of the body most rapidly in Black people, the Original People. Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites, and demonstrate more advanced cognitive skills than their white counterparts because of their abundance of Melanin. Carol Barnes writes “…your mental processes (brain power) are controlled by the same chemical that gives Black humans their superior physical (athletics, rhythmic dancing) abilities. This chemical… is Melanin!” The abundance of Melanin in Black humans produces a superior organism physically, mentally and spiritually. This why all the founders of the world’s great religions are Black. Melanin is the neuro-chemical basis for what is called SOUL in Black people. In the same way Blacks excel in athletics, they can excel in all other areas as well (like they did in the past!) once the road blocks are removed!

Is God Black? The Original Man was BLACK, “made in the IMAGE of God” his
Parent, according to scared books. Children look like their parents.
All the other races are but diluted variations of the Original Black Race.
Most whites have calcified pineal glands which thwarts Melatonin
production, thereby limiting their moral capacity. Located in the brain,
the tiny pineal & pituitary glands regulate the body’s other glands.
Esoteric tradition regards the area of these glands as the third eye, seat
of the soul, and the mystical Uraeus represented by the cobra on the
forehead of Egyptian royalty/crowns. Why did Africans view the European
as a child of God, but the Europeans viewed the African as a soulless
savage? Because of “melatonin,” described as a mentally & morally
stimulating humanizing hormone produced by the pineal gland. Scientific
research reveals that most whites are unable to produce much melatonin
because their pineal glands are often calcified and nonfunctioning.
Pineal calcification rates with Africans is 5-15%; Asians – 15-25%;
Europeans -60-80%! This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences
between Blacks and whites, causing some Black scholars to raise the
question that the European approach, that of the logical, erect, rigid,
anti-feeling posture, reflects a left brain orientation and reflects that
they lack the chemical key of melatonin to turn on their unconscious and
therefore cannot get into feelings. Carol Barnes writes “Melanin is
responsible for the existence of civilization, philosophy, religion,
truth, justice, and righteousness. Individuals (whites) containing low
levels of Melanin will behave in a barbaric manner.” Melanin give
humans the ability to FEEL because it is the absorber of all frequencies
of energy. Dr. Welsing writes “Since melanin is a superior absorber of
all energy , it is essential to establish this understanding of God and
‘all energy.’ The fact that the albinos lack melanin may also
help to explain …why, in the view of many non-white peoples, they
(whit4es) lack ‘spirituality” and the capacity to tune in to, and thereby
establish harmony and justice…”

The scientific evidence of Melanin threatens the ideology of white supremacy. After considering melanin to be a “waste” product of body-metabolism which “served no useful function,” Western (white) science has now discovered that Melanin is the chemical key to life and the brain itself! All studies and facts about Melanin suggest that after 400 years of attempting to inferiorize the Black race, “Western science is facing the sobering reality that, by its own self-defined standards, Black people are probably superior to whites in both intellectual potential and muscle Coordination.” (Sepia magazine interview). The central role Melanin plays in the body has been “suppressed to maintain the mythological inferiority of blacks…and the defensive clinging to whiteness as some token of superiority.” (Dr. Richard King) The “superiority complex” of white people is a defense mechanism and a mask for their deep set inferiority complex which they project onto people of color. Psychologists say insistent denial means reality in the opposite way. If whites really believed that white skin was “superior,” why is “tanning” so important in white culture despite its known health risks (thousands die annually from skin cancer). Also, curling or perming lifeless, straight hair, and the latest lip injections for a fuller look! And it is the white female who tells you that her ideal mate is “tall, DARK, and handsome!” “Dark” indeed refers to more Melanin!

Blacked Out Through Whitewash

This is a great book by Dr Suzar. She does a wonderful job on exposing many of the lies to you in his-story class. I think very black person needs to have this book in their library. After reading this book it changed how I saw America and the world at large.
