    Mikyia mo (Greetings),

    I thought I'd post this message that I wrote to someone on a different message board awhile back. I saw that there was a discussion on the origin of the name of the continent in one of the threads here. I thought that because of some of the information, this might be best suited for the Spirituality forum. Post is below:

    Mikyia wo (Greetings) Osirica,

    I understand your rationale for using Equatorial. It can be a
    functional english term designating our people.

    I use the terms Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) and
    Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) for several reasons.

    The name Africa is not of european/arab origination. 'Amen' is used
    by christians with the false definition "so be it" attached to it. Of
    course, Amen is The Great God, Whom along with The Great Goddess
    Amenet constitute the Supreme Being. The word 'hero' in english is
    derived from 'Heru', phonetically and conceptually. The name 'Africa'
    also is our own designation.

    The term 'ka' means 'soul'. The metut/symbol is that of two arms
    raised in a perpindicular fashion. However, we must look at the
    term 'Qa' (as written in Budge's Hieroglyphic Dictionary, Vol. 2;
    also, Queen Hatsheptsut's Tekhen/Obelisk). The term 'Qa' or 'Qaqa'
    or 'Qiqa', is phonetically, 'Ka', 'Kaka', 'Keka'. The metut/symbol is
    that of a man with his two arms raised in a perpindicualar fashion.
    If you look closely, the two arms are the same two arms in the
    metut/symbol/term "ka" (soul).

    'Qa', 'Qai' or 'Qaqa' or 'Qiqa' (Ka, Kai, Kaka, Keka) is defined
    variously as "the land above the banks of the river". The 'high'
    land. The 'exalted' land. The 'raised' land. The "high ground upon
    which the God of Creation first stood". It is the raised-land where
    the eight primordial Deities converged to create the egg from which
    Ra/Rait would emerge.

    Ka, Kaka, Ke, Keka phonetically are the same terms as Qa, Qaqa, Qi,
    Qiqa. Let's look at the Yoruba language. There are 5 sacred hills.
    The sacred hill/raised-land in Yoruba is called oKe. The
    specific 'ke' or 'oke' (hill) called 'oke ara' is defined as
    the "hill upon which the Orishas first descended at the creation of
    the world" (See Imoye, by Baba Ifa Karade).

    In the Twi language of the Akan people, 'Koko'(Kaka) means 'hill'
    (Twi-English Dictionary, by Paul Kotey). In Mayan, 'ka' means 'soil'.
    (Amaru-ka; soil-land of Amaru--Amaru is the "plumed serpent", thus,
    Amaruka 'America' is the 'land of the feathered/plumed serpent (Amen-
    Ra)

    When Ra moves through matter He has the title "Afu Ra". (See the
    temple of Seti I, Shat em Duat, 3rd Hour of the night for the title
    of Ra being "Afu Ra" as opposed to "Af" or "Afu")

    The first raised land (Qa/Ka), raised up above the surface of the
    water, is the "Ka of Afu Ra" Afuraka. Of course, Rait (Rat) is the
    Creatress of the world, just as Ra is the Creator. The feminine form
    of the name is thus the "Kait of Afu Rait" Afuraitkait.

    Please see mamiwata.com and the various links to learn of the
    functions and manifestations of the Creator "Da" and His
    wife "Houelousou Da (Wife of Da)". In Dahomean Vodoun, Ra is
    pronounced Da. Rat is Houelousou Da. Same Deities, same functions.

    One of the definitions according to Budge for the term "nu"
    is 'children'. Also, it refers to a plurality. Again, in the Twi
    language of the Akan, the term "nom" (phonetically "noom") is a term
    for the plural, hence 'oyere' (wife) 'oyerenom' (wives); 'nua'
    (sibling) 'nuanom' (siblings); Nana (Elder/Elderess) Nananom
    (Elders/Elderesses). The Akan plural 'nom' is derived of the
    Kamau/Kenesu (Egyptian/Nubian) 'nu'.

    The term 'af' [spelled with the metutu of a "reed" (A) and a "horned
    viper" (F)] in Kamit means 'flesh' as in house or place of residence.
    Your flesh is a house or place of residence for your spirit. Another
    word for place of residence/house temple is spelled 'af' or 'aft'
    [spelled with the metutu of the eagle (A) instead of the "reed" for
    letter (A), the "viper" for (F) and the determinative for an enclosed
    space/temple/house.]

    In Twi, the word for home, house is 'ofi' and 'ofie'. In Yoruba the
    word for residence/house is 'ofi'. The word for palace (residence of
    the king) is 'aafin'. (Af, Ofi, Ofie, Ofi, Aafin are all related)

    When Ra is moving through matter (e.g. 12 hours of the night), when
    His energy is inside of the Earth and making the Earth vibrant,
    Earth/matter becomes the 'flesh of Ra'. Afu Ra. Again, in Twi the
    word for fertile land (land with life-giving energy moving through
    it, i.e. cultivatable land) is called "afuw" or "afuo". Now, just as
    the name of the Deity in Akan culture called 'Asuo Gyebi' is often
    pronounced 'Asur Gyebi' (See Akan Protocol, by Nana Kyerewaa
    Opokuwaa). So is "Afuo" also pronounced "Afur". This is the reason
    why the land where some Akan people settled after having "Descended
    from Heaven by golden chain" is called "Koko-Afuo" Koko (hill/raised
    land) Afuo (land that is full of life; plantation; farmland). Today
    this land is called Kokofu in Ghana. Koko-Afur is none other than
    Afur-Koko. (See "Forests of Gold" by Wilks; also, see African
    Spirituality: On Becoming Ancestors, by Anthony Ephirim-Donkor, for a
    reference to Koko's farm/land).

    There is much more to this, as this is a brief summary. There is also
    the fact that the term Hat-Ka-Ptah is often spelled Hat-Ptah-Ka (See
    King Piye/Piankhi's victory stele). 'Het' was condensed into 'At' by
    the greeks (note: Het-Heru becomes Hathor and Athyr). Ptah was
    corrupted by the greeks and others into Putah (buddha) and Phutah.
    Hence, Hat-Ptah-Ka, becomes A-futah-ka. (afuraka). Hat-Ptah-Ka and
    Afuraka have the same meaning cosmologically. (More on this later, as
    it relates to Ptah's functioning as fashioner of the World)

    Finally, Our descent from the original Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut, the
    original people of Afuraka/Afuraitkait; our descent from those who
    remained in Afuraka/Afuraitkait to receive the Spirits of the
    Goddesses and Gods; our ability through Ka-Nu/Kat-Nut (Melanin) to
    receive and transmit the fullness of that Divine energy; Our
    INCARNATION and RE-INCARNATION through these families; it is these
    things [in total] that define us as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut. It
    matters not where we go now on Earth or are born on Earth, we remain
    Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut in the physical world and the Ancestral
    realm.

    This is simply because our various Ancestral traditions state that a
    small group of us were forced out of the motherland. Yet, the
    majority of us who remained in/on the motherland were there when the
    Deities entered our clans/families (ritual possession was just one
    means by which They entered our families for the first time). This
    altered our blood forever. We then carried this altered/Divine blood,
    and the Deities, to every place we migrated on Earth. Our
    civilizations around the world are a testament to the Divine Order
    (manifest by the Deities) operating within our blood, our families.

    Those who were outside of the motherland when the Deities entered our
    families do not have this blood/nor spiritual disposition. They do
    not have the connection to the Divinities that we do. Those who were
    initially forced out of the motherland and drawn to northern eurasia
    BEFORE the Deities entered into the various Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit
    Clans are those who missed this infusion of Divine energy (they were
    thousands of miles away) and are those who became the whites and
    their offspring of today.

    See Psychotechnology of Brainwashing, Kwabena Ashanti (2001 edition)
    for an article about the Human Genome Project's findings. A small
    group of Africans living in europe about 20,000 to 25,000 years ago
    are said to have been those who birthed the whites and their
    offspring.

    See ([email protected] for discussions on race, august-
    september 2002--it includes Odu dealing with the origins of the
    whites and their offspring; see mamiwata.com; see the Book of the Cow
    of Heaven/Destruction of Mankind (Ra orders the destruction of the
    blasphemous men and women, some of whom escaped to the mountain
    lands. Ultimately Ra states that, "I have slain some of them, yet
    there remains a remnant of worthless ones, for the extent of my
    destruction was not according to the expanse of my power/ability").
    After Ra destroys most (not all) of the blasphemous men and women, He
    blesses those who fought for Him, calls for the creation of the
    Sekhet Hetep, etc.

    There is much, much more to this, however we can definitely say with
    truth that we are Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (created by and children
    of, Afu Ra and Afu Rait. Our bodies (and melanin) were formed from
    the original, black, raised land (Ka). Cosmologically and culturally,
    this unites all of us who are Black/African, yet it distinguishes us
    from europeans, asians, etc. Remember, one of the criteria of being
    Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit as stated above is based on re-incarnation
    through specific blood circles. Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut all around
    the world do divinvation for those who want to have children,
    sometimes to determine what spirit is around them, is about to
    incarnate, it it is a negative spirit, etc.

    Mikyia mo (Greetings),

    It should also be noted that the name of the Creatress, Rait, is also pronounced, Rat (Raht). The 't' is almost silent, thus the variation of the name Afuraitkait (Afuratkat) sounds nearly identical to the masculine Afuraka.

    Ma asomdwoee-Hetep,
    Ra Nehem

    Welcome

    Ra Nehem, welcome to our community. You've been here only a brief period of time but you've made an indelible impression given the information you have shared thus far.

    Please tell me, where would someone go to learn more about our ancient African religions and find out how they are practiced? Also, can you or anyone here explain the difference between the African religions and which one is most widely practiced in these modern times?

    I have another question. With so much evidence pointing toward the corruption of African religions, why would any African want to practice a 'foreign' religion? Interestingly, I see no one here challenging your writing--not a Muslim nor a Christian and typically, there is usually a lot of debate around these topics. Why do you think that is? Are your facts so strong as to squash the possibility of any debate?

    You should consider teaching an online class here. I think it would be well attended and there is much that our people (myself included) needs to learn.

    Peace and I hope you stick around and continue sharing your knowledge with us. :spinstar:

    This is deep. I've never seen it broken down like this in all my years of study.

    Thank you for this!!!

    Mikyia wo (Greetings) NNQueen,

    I apologize for my delayed response. I appreciate your comments and your welcome.

    With respect to learning about our Ancestral Religions here are a few references:

    www.mamiwata.com (Ewe Vodoun---the foundation of "voodoo")

    "Handbook of Yoruba Religious Concepts" by Baba Ifa Karade (Yoruba)

    "Imoye: A Definition of the Ifa Tradition" by Baba Ifa Karade (Yoruba)

    "The Sankofa Movement: ReAfrikanization and the Reality of War" by Kwame Agyei Akoto and Akua Nson Akoto (Akan culture and Pan Afrikan Nationalism)

    "African Spirituality: On Becoming Ancestors" by Anthony Ephirim-Donkor (Akan)

    "The Adinkra Dictionary" by W. Bruce Willis (Akan)

    "The Akan Cultural Symbols Project" website (check through search engine)

    "After God is Dibia" Vols. 1 and 2 by J.A. Umeh (Igbo Cosmology)

    "Metu Neter" Vols. 1 and 2 by Ra Un Nefer Amen (Kamit)

    Fundamentally, all Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religions are the same.

    We all recognize the Great Mother and Great Father Who come together as the Two Halves of the Great Divine Whole to constitute the Supreme Being. (Amen and Amenet in Kamit, Lisa and Mawu in Ewe, Nyame and Nyamewaa in Akan, Chukwu and Komosu in Igbo, etc.)

    We recognize the Goddesses and Gods (Deities---Children of the Great God and Great Goddess), the Ancestresses and Ancestors, Their functions in Creation and Their relation to our functions in Creation as all are part of the Divine Order.

    The essence of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion is "the ritual incorporation of Divine Law and the ritual restoration of Divine Balance". Through ritual, we incorporate things and entities in our lives that are in harmony with the Divine function the Supreme Being has given to us to execute in Creation. When imbalance occurs, when we stray from Divine Order, we restore balance to our lives through ritual. It is by this means that we get back on track----realign ourselves with our function in the world. (Similar to your body's cells each of which have a function to execute in the organ or system of which they are a part. By properly serving their immediate parent organ or system (Goddess or God---Deity) they are actually serving your entire body (the Great Organic System/Supreme Being). When imbalance occurs (disease) there are rituals performed (e.g. intake of medicine) so that your cells can get back to executing the Divine function in the Great Body of which they are a part and through which they are sustained.

    The basic differences amongst various ethnic expressions of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion are basically linguistic as well as the variations of expression (forms of dance, song, drumming, clothing, foods, etc.) based on location (regions of the continent) and specific Ancestral transmissions and taboos based on specific blood circles.

    Fundamentally, we are all on the same page. As an Afurakani (African) male born in America, who has embraced and lives his Ancestral culture (Akan) I feel at home when I am a guest at Yoruba or Ewe rituals. The differences in culture are slight, because we are all connected as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans), physically and spiritually.

    With regards to the practice of foreign religions by our people. Generally, people just don't have trustorical information. Trustory [troo'-stoh-ree (true-story; trust-worthy story)] is defined as: "A true and accurate account of past events"

    Trustorical information about the false religions: christianity, islam, judaism/hebrewism, hinduism, vedanta, buddhism, etc. and their various forms: gnosticism, sufism, kabbalism, "esoteric" teachings, etc. is just now beginning to be released in a detailed fashion. The false religions and there psuedo-esoteric forms are finally being rejected by those of our people who are learning the truth. When people understand that jesus/yeshua/hesus and yeshua ben pandira, muhammad and bilal, moses, abraham, isaac, ishmael, buddha, solomon, sheba, menelik, etc. are absolutely fictional---beyond the shadow of a doubt---then we begin to realign ourselves with reality.

    When we study our ancient culture and religious practices of Kamit (Egypt) and Keneset (Nubia) we will find that the contemporary cultures (Akan, Ewe, Yoruba, Bakongo, Bambara, Dogon, Igbo, Goromantche, etc.) are directly descendant---genetically, linguistically, culturally and ritually. We also find the beginnings of religious perversion----when the whites and their offspring first invaded our societies and deliberately manufactured fictional characters and false religious practices in order to enslave those of us who would embrace them.

    I have some who attempt to challenge the information I present---but it is and always will be a futile effort. The information is trustorical. When you check the references and do the analysis you will find that it is irrefutable.

    It is only a matter of time now when our people will be totally free of the false religions of the whites and their offspring.

    Again, I appreciate your words. When I have time, I would like to look into the online class you wrote about.

    Ma asomdwoee-Hetep,
    Ra Nehem
