    Peep This Out: Told You Many Still Practice Shapeshifting 4 More Militant Purposes!..Feel Free 2 Comment.

    Human Leopards And Lions Who Walk Like Men

    Animal societies predate the colonial period and were gathered to fight the encroachment of European colonialism.

    The leopard and lion societies of Africa (as well as other animal societies) are steeped in mystery and are jealously guarded by the secret society systems. The secret societies are the custodians of the martial sciences. They hold the power within the culture to protect the greater society and to train the young boy in the art of responsibility.Human leopards are those men who through initiations are brought into the realm of animal powers. The sacred stories, dances, ritual exercises and spiritual medicines blend together to bring the human into the realm of animal consciousness.These animal societies predate the colonial period butt were gathered to figanibalism and murder. It is not uncommon for freedom fighters throughout the world to be smeared by governmental powers, and so it was with the animal societies.Becoming The AnimalThese men of power actually became the animal. They lived in the body of a leopard, lion or baboon. They abided by a strict code of secrecy and under penalty of death, would not reveal the secrets of the brotherhood which involved secret signs and passwords, ritual symbology and special languages.. One could speak to another leopard brother and convey messages and still have another meaning to the ears of those who were not a part of the secret society.This language that was inside the greater society-yet seperate-involved animal calls, ritual urination and a host of other physical standards which served to bind the group.Sacred clothing was sometimes used along with traditional weapons, such as claws and special knives. These items would be used to eliminate certain people who were opposed to the society as a whole.The human leopard would be so animal –like that it was very hard to distinguish its work from that of an actual leopard. When someone of the leopard society was sent on a mission, they would leave tracks and wounds appearing to be the result of leopard claws and teeth. Animal attributes were used in every day life to help bind the greater society to its subunits.

    Sacred Space In the bush, sacred space was designed for ritual communalism and meetings for the society’s business. Training consisted of dances passed down from generation to generation, which came from the first ancestors of the clans. Conversations and communions of the actual leopards and herbal preparations.The animal societies of Africa played a great role in its history. The power of these societies is most often overlooked but their power is immense, existing to this very day. These societies continue to secure the traditions of the animal clan ancestors.

    The lion societies are identified with solar and kingly power. The mane of the male lion is symbolic of the sun’s corona, an outgrowth of its inner fire.The lion is revered for its way of life because lions live in a society.. Lions live in large family groups in which the female is the principle hunter and the male is the ever-present guardian of the group. All members are responsible for the protection of the young.The lion skin can only be worn by the most powerful warriors who have proven themselves in battle. Lions and leopards represented as fully zoomorphic and anthropomorphic deities such as Mahes, Apedmak and Sekmet, who were all warriors.Societies EvolveReverence to the ancient warrior gods by the priesthood eventually developed into the lion societies of East and West Africa. The knowledge of the animal systems came from the deities themselves through the spiritual systems. Warriors of extraordinary martial skill empowered by the deity would perform miraculous feats of strength and endurance.Dramas of an initiatory nature were performed only in the proper season to harmonize with the universal forces. The main emphasis is not on developing techniques, but the principles upon which those techniques are founded. Also developed was a fighting conscious within the nature of man through divine principles.Man’s nature is departmentalized into constituent parts:Ara (physical body); Ojiji (shadow); lye (mental body,mind)); Oka (heart, heart soul); and Emi (spirit, spiritual body, spiritual soul). These aspects of the nature of man blend together and merge with the animal souls to develop the lion and leopard fighting systems.. Warriors at a very young age were blessed and sanctified to the clan animal. The warrior was taught the sacred dances , music and songs to evoke the sate of consciousness of the great elder (the first lion or leopard from which the group identifies).Animal SystemsThe body’s organs are the divine receptors for the animal souls. The Emi. Activated by the will, enabled the warrior to transform or shapeshift into the clan animal. These principles are part of the ancient and contemporary African animal fighting societies. The Ta-merrian Institute seeks the preservation of these societies for their divine knowledge.

    Animal systems practiced at the Ta-merrian Institute that reflect many of the principles held sacred in the warrior societies are;Lion..Snake.Phoenix. Ape.Crocodile.Panther.BullThe Lion-its regal appearance and ferocious style is the solar fighting system. The lion’s mane unites the symbols of sun fire (solar head and heart) and of air through the strong respiratory chest of the lion that fires the fighting emotions.The Snake-Consisting of a vertebral column coated with skin, it is a column so supple that it can take almost any position of the risen body of the cobra.The Phoenix-The solar bird is reborn from its own ashes; symbolic of rebirth. It is sometimes identified with various types of animals in ancient times, mostly the cranes.The Ape-A large monkey with elongated muzzle. Ferocious fighter noted for its mane. Its cries at dawn and dusk have given it an important symbolic role.The Crocodile-Low threshing movements, the terror in water transmuting the elements of water and air, adjusting different levels of evolution.The Panther-Symbolic of strength and power. Many tribes in Africa still wear the ritual panther skin to bring strength to the wearer.The Bull- The animal type for generating force to completely dominate an opponent.The human leopards and the lions who walk like man reveal the ancient powers of man. Those powers can still be called upon by the African warriors of today to oppose injustice.They can also be called upon to preserve more complete way of like and the principles modern man has forsaken. Inclusion of ancient principles into today’s society may recapture an elusive manhood and bring us back to a former greatness which is needed, sadly missed and hopefully can be recaptured.

    Hotep, Youko


    Very interesting post

    a student of metaphysics, before i knew what what metaphysics was.

    Secret Societies, Cultivation of the Mind, Body, And Spirit, Alchemy, Chakra systems, Sun Gazing, the Mystery systems, Astrology, Tarot etc have always manage to hold a special place in my spirit.

    And after discovering and realizing what my true african heritage was and is, I realized why

    But only recently have I found the conviction, fortitude, and dedication needed to put what I have learned into application.

    -but thats the problem.

    I don't know where i should focus my energy and what system, as the all call to me in some form or fashion.

    -And thats what brings me to your post,

    First and foremost, honored (but not surprised) this sacred system has its roots in africa, I intuitively understand the importance of learning a metaphysical system of enlightenment that merges, the mind, body, and spirit.(and how important that is , now at this point in time) Not to mention many of the concepts that most interest me about personal spiritual development were also mentioned. I felt a kinship i cant describe.

    Unable to tell if you are a student, or simply an admirer of this system I was hoping you might be able to point me where i might learn more about this sacred system.

    Padre Engo Piece Enjoy!! WEREWOLF CULTS. AFRICAN NAGUALISM

    DURING THE DARK DAYS OF THE INQUISITION, SPECIALLY THE WITCH HUNT PERIOD FROM 1320 TO 1468, THE CHURCH JUSTIFIED ITS ACTIONS FROM THE SUMMA THEOLOGICA. WITCHES WERE SEEN AS BEING CAPABLE OF RIDING AT NIGHT (VADUNCT DE NOCTE), DISGUISED AS ANIMALS..... JEWS AND MOORS BECAME THE FIRST SCAPEGOATS OF THE CHURCH. THIS INSANE PERSECUTION WAS SOON TO BE TRIED OVERSEAS AGAINST THE NATIVES OF THE COLONIES.....IN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA, THE MALE COUNTERPART OF THE WITCH IS CALLED LOBISOMENS. THEY ARE KNOWN TO BE CAPABLE OF TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO ANIMALS. WITCHES ARE KNOWN TO FLY AT NIGHT AFTER RUBBING THEIR NAKED BODIES WITH THE OIL OF CERTAIN PLANTS". FERREIRA TOUCHES ON A FEW OCCULT PRACTICES THE MOORISH BRUJOS OF MEDIEVAL SPAIN HAVE IN COMMON WITH THE NAGUALS OF THE CENTRAL AMERICA. IN ADDITION TO THE RITUAL USE OF MIND-EXPANDING DRUGS, THE MOORISH BRUJO AND THE MEXICAN NAGUAL BOTH POSSESS DARK SHAMANIC RITES THAT REVOLVED LYCANTHROPY AND THE ABILITY TO FLY A NIGHT. FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW, IN MEDIEVAL BLACK EUROPE AND WEST AFRICAN SHAMANISM LYCANTHROPY WAS THE MAGICAL ART OF TURNING ONE'S SELF INTO A WEREWOLF AND VAMPIRE, A SUPERNATURAL BEING THAT ALSO HAD THE ABILITY TO FLY AT NIGHT INTO THE HOUSES OF ITS SLEEPING VICTIMS. IN THEY CAME BEFORE COLUMBUS, SERTIMA SAYS THE FOLLOWING ABOUT THIS ANCIENT OCCULT SCIENCE IN AFRICA AND THE AMERICAS: "IN THE MEXICAN RITUAL THE GOD OF THE AMANTECA IS CLOTHED IN THE WEREWOLF'S SKIN, ALTHOUGH IT WEARS A HUMAN MASK ON ITS HEAD.....THE RELATIONSHIP MAY NOW BE SEEN VERY CLEARLY BETWEEN THE AMANTECA OF MEXICO AND THE AMANTIGI OR NAMATIGI OF MALI. THE WORSHIP OF THE WEREWOLF TOTEM, OR NAGUAL, UNDERWENT VERY FEW CHANGES INDEED IN ITS TRANSPLANTATION FROM MALI TO MEXICO. AS IN ALL TRANSPLANTATIONS, LOCAL FAUNA AND MATERIALS SIMPLY REPLACED THE ORIGINAL (THE HYNENA BECAME THE COYOTE, THE STICK KNOBBED WITH SHEEP'S HORNS BECAME THE STICK KNOBBED WITH BLACK STONES, THE BRIGHT TROPICAL BIRDS OF AFRICA HAD THEIR FEATHERS MATCHED BY THE RICH PLUMES OF THE SOUTH AMERICAN QUETZALLI BIRD), BUT THE BASIC COMPLEX OF IDEAS AND THEIR UNIQUE ORGANIZATION REMAINED BEHIND AS SKELETAL EVIDENCE OF THEIR AFRICAN ORIGIN. VAGUE, GENERAL PARALLELS IN RITUAL BEHAVIOR MAY EVOLVE INDEPENDANTLY IN REMOTE CULTURES, BUT THERE IS A COMPLEX CLUSTER OF ELEMENTS HERE--NOT ONLY SYMBOLS, IMAGES AND RITUAL ACTS, BUT EVEN LINGUISTIC LABELS AND CONCEPTUAL CONFUSIONS--THAT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN REPEATED IN THEIR ARBITRARINESS BY VIRTUE OF A SIMILAR RESPONSE TO THE SAME PHENOMENA. THE IDENTICALS ARE SO STAGGERING THAT ONE FEELS ONE IS LOOKING INTO A MIRROR AT WHAT BOTH THE MEXICAN AND MALI MAGICIANS WOULD CALL THE SHADOW OF THE TWIN, THE SPIRIT OF THE DOUBLE". THE WEREWOLF CULT SERTIMA PROVES WAS INTRODUCED INTO MEXICO BY WEST AFRICAN SHAMANS FROM MALI AND MEDIEVAL SPAIN CAN ALSO BE FOUND AMONGST THE BLACK CARIBS OF HAITI RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DARKEST AND MOST VIOLENT OF THE HAITIAN BIZANGO MYSTERIES. LIKE THE MEXICAN NAGUALS, THE MOORISH BRUJOS OF AL-ANDALUS, AND THE SHAMANS OF WEST AFRICA, THE HAITIAN BIZANGO CULT IS BASED ON MYSTERIES OF THE WEREWOLF AND LYCANTHROPY. IN HAITAN FOLKLORE, THE BIZANGO INITIATE IS BELIEVED TO TURN INTO A WEREWOLF AFTER MIDNIGHT AND EAT THE LIFEFORCE ENEGRY OF THE LIVING AS THE LATER SLEEP. ALSO, ACCORDING TO MANY PALO MAYOMBE ELDERS, THE SMALL BLACK COFFIN THAT IS SOMETIMES PLACED INSIDE THE ZARABANDA CAULDRON REPRESENTS THE BIZANGO MYSTERIES HAITIAN SLAVE REBELS INTRODUCED INTO AFRO-CUBAN WITCHCRAFT AND SORCERY AROUND THE TIME OF THE HAITIAN REVOLUTION. ALL THIS MAKES ALOT OF SENSE WHEN WE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE FACT THAT ZARABANDA IS A DARK SPIRIT ACTION THAT IN SOME PALO KONGO ORDERS SUCH AS CHANGANI NTOTO IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TAINOS, TUPIS, CARIBS AND ARAWAKS COLUMBUS AND OTHER EARLY WHITE EXPLORERS DESCRIBED AS MEDIEVAL MOORS, MOHAMMADANS, BERBERS AND BLACK INDIANS.

    Interesting. Are these your own words or is this from a website?

    Also, are you familiar with the systems from Central Africa (Ndongo, Kongo) which many of our Ancestors brought with them across the Diaspora?

    I asked for several reasons but what stood out was the lack of mention of the Centeal African traditions which actually are closer to my (I can't speak for all of us) Bloodties and my Ancestors from areas such as Kongo, Ndongo, what we now refer as Angola.

    There is some mention if you use search engine for Ekpe, or Abakua.

    By the way, welcome to the site. You will find that the area you are dealing in was trending here about five years ago, so thanks for Building on to this knowledge.
