The Provocative Origins of Kemetic Spirituality
Kemet (also known as “KMT”) is ancient Egypt’s native name, and Kemetic spirituality or Kemetism is a neo-pagan religious movement that seeks to restore ancient Kemetic/Egyptian religious practices.
Kemetic spirituality appeals to people of African descent because it provides a cultural and religious link to the spirituality of lost African societies. But it is put into practice by people of all races around the world, and adherents’ approaches vary. Neterism or Egyptian Neo-paganism are other names for Kemetic spirituality.
This includes the worship of Egyptian deities such as Thoth, Maat, and Ra, the sun god, and private altars are common in Kemetic homes. At these shrines, food offerings and prayers are made on a daily basis. Wicca and New Age thinking connect with Kemetism.
Let’s Dive Deeper into the Foundation of Kemetic Spirituality!
Kemetic Spirituality devotees are able to walk a path their forefathers first walked more than 4,000 years ago thanks to a foundation of ancient thought and spiritual structure. It’s an African Traditional Religion that resembles other African Traditional and African Diasporic religions. As well as spiritual practices from northeastern Africa and the ancient Near East.
Practicing Kemetic Spirituality necessitates a devotion to understanding a historical-cultural heritage that Kemetic Spirituality persists in respecting. Yes, even in periods of history that cease from its initial practice.
What is Maat Philosophy to You?
In Ancient Egypt, Maat refers mostly to the nature of truth, justice, and balance, as well as the goddess who personifies these ideas. The advancement of Maat is the core of Kemetic Spirituality practice. Members’ rituals and prayers are seen as aiding in the spread of Maat. Even if they are also told to take material action on social issues.
The 11 Laws of Kemetic Spirituality
#1: The Law of Amen
According to the Rule of Amen, you were created in the image of perfect peace that nothing can disturb. Restore your peace so that you can achieve your reason for being – the pleasure of life. If, in fact, it’s our nature to be at ease in stressful situations, the only thing we need to do is ignore the emotional reactions that arise in such situations.
What’s the point of struggling and ruining our growth and development abilities if we can be at peace? Especially when peace in challenging situations results in higher intellect and spiritual energy?
#2: The Law of Ausar
Because your nature is invincible in harmony, nothing or no one in the world can stand in your way. Every experience comes to you to help you reclaim your peace so that you can attain enlightenment and spiritual energy. If achieving our natural state of peace in the face of adversity improves our intuition and spiritual strength, we should not dismiss adversity as harmful to our being.
If a bad event is unavoidable, what is the point of letting it damage us? When can we use it to our advantage by simply adopting the appropriate mindset?
#3: The Law of Tehuti
The Law of Tehuti asserts that when all of your thoughts, feelings, and behavior reflect God’s Word, the power of God’s spirit and an unbreakable serenity will flow through your soul. Why give in to anger, fear, lust, and so on if we can intuit God’s Word by cultivating our ability to be at peace in difficult situations? Why should we rely solely on our minds when we have access to God’s Word, which is superior to our own?
#4: The Law of Seker
The Law of Seker entails that when man’s emotions manifest in response to God’s Word, they have the ability to influence the course of all issues in history. Why give in to anger, fear, lust, and so on if we have access to God’s spiritual power through the cultivation of the ability to be at peace in difficult situations? Why shouldn’t we be at peace in the face of adversity?
#5: The Law of Maat
According to the Law of Maat, God requires you to enter the world. Accomplishing God’s wants is the greatest expression of love, and you can only fulfill your love for others through your love for God. For the sake of the world’s protection, become the Love of God.
If we have access to spiritual power, why can’t we love those who commit wrongdoings against us? Especially when the act of love is the creation of the universe’s strongest force? Isn’t it true that if we are one, then the good I do for you is also good for me?
#6: The Law of Herukhuti
Know that God does not punish, reward, or protect you and that you will have the comfort of being able to control these things for yourself. If unavoidable hardships are not the source of our suffering as a result of our failure to reclaim our original nature, then spiritual growth must be our top priority.
If we are one, I must avoid doing you wrong in order to prevent you from doing me wrong. This is the key to justice and protection for and from others.
#7: The Law of Heru
You have the ability but not the right to disregard God’s Law. Choose to obey God’s Law with the joy and love that comes from your understanding. And the power and wisdom of God’s spirit will flow through you.
Why should we give in to emotions that have proven to be harmful to our well-being if we have free will? Why not choose peace in all circumstances, especially since it is the cornerstone to intellect, strength, and satisfaction?
#8: The Law of Het-Heru
Do you consider yourself to be a human or a divine being? Het-Heru corresponds to the tools used to program behavior. Such programming can be done at will if the law is understood. We can choose to allow only peace and pleasure to manifest as our emotional reactions to all events if we have the tools to program any desired behavior at will.
#9: The Law of Sebek
It is not what you believe, it depends on who is thinking and who is affirming. Do you consider yourself to be a human or a divine being? Sebek conforms to the instruments to program behavior.
Such programming can be done at will if the law is understood. We can choose to allow only peace and satisfaction to demonstrate as our emotional responses to all events. That is if we have the tools to program any desired behavior at will.
#10: The Law of Auset
Prepare to give up everything to become God’s vessel on Earth, and you will receive everything in return. This is a commitment to God’s service. Auset uses such programming which can be done at will if the law is understood. We can choose to allow only happiness and gratification to manifest as our thoughts and feelings to all events. That is if we have the tools to program any desired behavior at will.
#11: The Law of Geb
Recognize that you came from heaven and will return to heaven; do not seek long-lasting works on earth. Because of your resemblance to God, you are the ruler of the earth.
Our physical aspect is completely reprogrammable. Why not devote the use of our will to programming desirable ends in our lives? Such as peace, happiness, health, and prosperity – since we have the laws and faculties to do so?
Kemetic Spirituality entails truth, justice, and balance. It is a way of life and philosophy that can restore our faith in the beauty of tradition.
