The first of the universe is VIBRATION!

Spirituality for Aboriginal Indigenous People is something that has always been a part of who we are and how we live. We all have our individual ways of expressing our connection to a higher power. What we must keep in MIND is our ability to create and fashion our lives as we wish. Tapping into our God (Creator) link will enable us to change our physical, economic, and mental environment. But first, we MUST embrace the power we hold in order to use what we have to get what we want.

Genesis 1:27  “So God (Eloheem) created man in his own image. In the image of God (Eloheem) he created them; male and female created he them.”

Qur'an 3:59 “Indeed, the example of Jesus (Yashua) to Allah is like that of Adam (Zakar). He created Him from dust; then He said to him, "Be," and he was.”

Genesis 2:7 “Then the LORD God (Eloheem) formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”

Qur’an 15:29 “So when I have formed him fully and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down before him in prostration!”

If God, Yahweh, Allah, Jehovah, Buddha, Ra, Lord, Eloheem, Most High, etc... has the power to create, then we too being made in his image, have that same power within us.

“The latent power of divinity is in you. Once we recognize and fully embrace who we are, we can then reach our highest potential.” – Dr.Malachi Z. York El

Look at this way.  You are human. When you conceive a child, you expect that child to be born in the same form as you are. You would not expect

a child to be born looking like dog, or an elephant, or a fly. As a matter of fact you look at the child to see whose eyes, nose, smile, feet the child has. As the child grows you are able to see what personality he or she inherited from the mother and father, even back to the grandparents.

 

Understanding those facts make it clearer to embrace the God (Eloheem) genes in you. Look for ways to use your mind and energy to create the life you want. Never think anything is out of reach just because you can’t see it. As the saying goes “If you think it, you can achieve it.”

Use the power you have to control your destiny in order to make your life easier and more fulfilling. As we use this ability we will magically see our lives change and be exactly as we planned it to be. Know your potential.

Believe in the power of mind and thoughts. We become what we think about all the time.

Proverbs 23:7 says:

“For as he thinks within himself, so he is…” 

–New American Standard Bible

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”

-King James Bible

“For as he thinks within himself, so he is…” 

-International Standard Bible

Think of your mind as a radio station. Tune into a station that plays Jazz music, some play blues, some play rap, and some play Rhythm and

blues. Now imagine your mind as that radio station. If you tune into negative thoughts, then your mind will then pick up on all the negative

thoughts in the universe. But if you tune into positive thoughts, then your mind will tune into all the positive thoughts in the universe.

We have higher senses that we were able to easily use at one time, when we had what was called our barathary gland. 

 

These Higher Senses are:

Telepathy- being able to send messages and communicate from mind to mind;

Clairvoyance- the ability to see into other dimensions clear visions;

Psychometry- the ability to hold an object of a particular individual and be able to tell them about them;

Intuition- the ability or second awareness about something before it happens.

Many of us are able to use these senses while many of us are not aware that they exist. But information alone will allow you to pay attention to your mind. Pay attention to your thoughts. Most people that are able to use these senses on a higher level than others are now called Psychics. Yet these senses are inside all of us. So Mine your Mind.

African Mythology is a powerful pathway to understanding the foundation for truth. It is based on Ancient Africans saying it arises out of both the subconscious of the universe and the deeper levels of the subconscious of each human being. Related to the cosmic subconscious are three broad realms of existence-the Physical (Ta), the Astral (Duat, Dwat, Amenta, Amenti) and the heaven (Pet). On the one hand truth arises out of these three while on the other hand it may be necessary to penetrate these three realms to expose the truth. In either direction, what penetrates the deep recesses of the psyche is mythology and what then spreads out on the psyche's "base bottom" is the Amenta. The story of the Amenta starts with the ways Ancient Africans believed the world began. But herein lay some problems. One reason is that by being quite conservative, African sages never discarded any of their old beliefs in favor of new ones-opting instead to assimilate them. Another is that they were quite content to have several different explanations for the same thing, for each might eventually serve in different contexts. As a result, there were several variations on how the world was created-with Atum, Ra, Ptah, and Neit having his/her own story. Still, there was only one underlying image-that of the one universal high God-Atum-Raa (Re)-who existed before any notion of space or time.

According to a composite and dominant African myth, for real things to appear God uttered the sacred word-the sound-the vibration. Hence, the primordial water of "Nun" (Nu)--the ocean of potential consciousness-- was created. This celestial ocean, containing everything in embryonic form, was shrouded in darkness and contained the male and female principles inside everything that was to exist in the future. Emanating from the Supreme Being was Ra (Nefertem, the rising disc of the sun), Tem (the setting sun), the creative principles embodied in the primordial gods and goddesses of creation, and the "Neteru" (divine energy)-all sailing in the "Boat of Millions of Years." Sailing signifies the beginning of motion in creation and motion implies that events occur in the realm of time and space (Ashby, African Origins, p318). Raa, the light of God, caused all forms of life to come into existence (neteru) and into order (Maat). These necessarily sprang out of a foundation laid in Truth (Seleem, Egyptian Book of Life, p7). Hence, the image of God was believed to enter into all forms of real existence-called the Substance. This entirely dark and cosmic Amenta realm-termed the Egyptian Paradise, the Subterranean, the Netherworld, the void, the "nothingness", the underworld of Osiris, Duat, or the Land of the Word's Truth"-was paradoxically full of light and fire nearly passing through the Amenta was energizing.

By embracing the Sublime and supernatural portions of the Astral world, this cosmic Amenta contains everything in the supernatural world pertaining to ignorance and mental agitation (demons, fantasies, distortions, unrealistic desires) and everything in the Sublime/Real Self connection pertaining to salvation. One's subconscious Amenta power comes from its connection with the cosmic Amenta. One's Sublime Amenta power (Ashby, p116) is in the deepest "hidden" aspect of the human heart (the Amun, the "witnessing consciousness) and the reasoning conscious mind. In African Tradition, a person can not claim to be living in Truth without consistency in the observance of the Sublime laws of Ma'at (love in action) at each and every crossroad situation pertaining to daily living. The tools for salvation include the Truth, peace, harmony, and wisdom at an Asar level (i.e. above thought-such as consciousness experiences during deep dreamless sleep). So as to prepare to reach the heaven Afterlife, Ancient Africans needed to be well on the road to "Knowing Thyself" before being able to grab hold of their Amenta power.
