The Ankh: Physical and Eternal Life

nae-ankh

The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Kemet.

The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as an amulet to extent the life of living and placed on the mummy to energize the resurrected spirit. The Gods and the Kings are often shown carrying the Ankh to distinguish them from mere mortals. The Ankh symbolized eternal life and bestowed immortality on anyone who possessed it. It is believed that life energy emanating from the Ankh can be absorbed by anyone within a certain proximity. An Ankh serves as an antenna or conduit for the divine power of life that permeates the universe. The amulet is a powerful talisman that provides the wearer with protection from the evil forces of decay and degeneration.

The loop of the Ankh is held by the Gods. It is associated with Isis and Osiris in the Early Dynastic Period. The Loop of the Anhk also represent the feminine discipline or the (Womb), while the elongated section represent the masculine discipline or the (Penis). These two sacred units then come together and form life. Because of its powerful appeal, the Ankh was used in various religious and cultural rituals involving royalty. In the Treasures of Tutankhumun, the Ankh was a major artifact found in the tomb. The circle symbolizes eternal life and the cross below it represents the material plane. The Ankh is called the “Crux Ansata,” it is of Egyptian origin and can be traced to the Early Dynastic Period, appearing frequently in artwork of various material and in relief, depicting the Gods.

It is usually held to the nose of the deceased king by the Gods to represent the breath of life given in the after-world. The Ankh also resembles a key and is considered the key to eternal life after death. Its influence was felt in every dynastic period and survives as an icon possessing mystical power throughout the Coptic Christian era. The Ankh possessed by each God had power associated with that God. The Ankh of the God Anubis (shown in the picture to the right) is related to the protection of the dead, that of Sekmet, War, Hapi related to the living waters of the Nile and Amen, the spirit God, the breath of life.

Conversations with The Black Man’s God

Black Mans GOD...

God and the Ancestors speak to the Black race answering questions we ask ourselves – such as – the plight of the Black man, past, present and future. The book provides the tools for woman and man to spiritually transform their lives and relationships.
This book dares to look at the many issues that have been dogging the Black race for generations, in a shocking, frank and open way.
These deep issues are linked to our spiritual belief mindset that remained holistically undiagnosed. Essentially Conversations with the Blackman’s God is a discussion with Motherfather Principle and the Gods of our ancient Ancestors about the obstacles that are affecting the Black race in this time. The answers are raised from a spiritual standpoint channelled through psychic Neferatiti Ife who has been selected by the Gods for this work.
The dialogue is written in God speak, question and answer format.
This book is for those who have begun to question western religion and philosophy. For those who are open minded to believe that they are able to access the Gods directly, who are ready to begin the journey of self-introspection and healing.
‘The Blackman cannot be saved unless he helps himself. Too long have your people been victims to circumstances’
Both authors Neferatiti Ife and Arkenaton Shabazz were plagued by the constant discussions regarding the Black race. Through shared frustrations they began to look for answers and felt that solutions though meditation, connecting with MotherFather Principle and the Gods of the white light. The ancient Kemetians connected with these Gods on a daily basis and look at their achievements!
Following the traditions of their ancient Ancestors Neferatiti began to meditate to obtain the answers to their questions and the result has materialised in the book.
Many of the Spirits and Ancestors are not pleased to see the downfall of all of the work they have put in. They see the rise of their great nation becoming nothing.
The first half of the book addresses major issues of the African race- such as – why are our people suffering, slavery and negative psychological mindsets. Additionally questions about the future of the Black race, Europe and USA are revealed. Truths about Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King as well as biblical characters (Jesus, Moses, Melchisedek) are also revealed.
The second part of the book considers the individual thinking patterns – self love, healing, past pain and intimacy. Connected to this the book explores fundamental patterns in our failing relationships and how can we find true love in our lives?
‘You need to begin with self. Self is looking at your soul. What does your soul say to you everyday?’
Once the individual can embrace this information it can be used as a work book that is able heal internally and in so doing change the downward spiral of the African race for all times. Many of your race lost their inner guidance and their soul. They lost their connection with the divine spirit.
