a few months back, Sis. *Annelle asked us not to use the term "aboriginal" as a descriptor for first nations. because if youre original then youre original. she said, in essence, the attribute 'aboriginal' is a spell. and I'm beginning to see that quite possibly it is. wouldnt 'original' be sufficient? however the english language says ab-original means 'super original.' lol. of course there's no 'super original' cause that doesnt make sense, does it? if youre original to the land, youre the first peoples of said land.. you and yours legally hold the land rites..
unless theft or forfeit occurs.
so i did the knowledge and y'all, its true: ab- as a prefix means "away". Refer to any dictionary... It removes, or voids the word 'original' and spells it in a way that diminishes the power...'Aboriginal'- #issa name and an adjective, a descriptive word.. just as the term 'Black' carries specific legal and social implications, so does "Aboriginal." We see how diabolical the Aussie government and private contractors were in their dealings with the Original peoples of Australasia... treated them like captives brought to a foreign land... stole their birthrights. And now has the whole world calling them ab-original, binding them to kidnappers; their 'fathers.' Literally and linguistically, as in Abba.
"The category "Aboriginal Australia" was coined by the British after they began colonising Australia in 1788, to refer collectively to all people they found already inhabiting the continent, and later to the descendants of any of those people. Until the 1980s, the sole legal and administrative criterion for inclusion in this category was race, classified according to visible physical characteristics or known ancestors." -
if you look up the modifier 'Aboriginal' in a dictionary, it tales a falsehood. has to be. how else to explain it? ab is a prefix, as in ab-solve. Middle English absolven, borrowed from Latin absolvere "to release, acquit, finish, complete," from ab- + solvere "to loosen, release". Merriam-Webster. so even the etymology, dating back to europeans first usage affirms "ab-" releases or brings to completion the state of being original. of course most of us take damn near everything at face value and wont question the dictionary, as if it isn't made by humans... the legend goes that Malcolm Little (el hajj Malik el Shabazz) while incarcerated read the dictionary cover-to-cover and doing so expanded and transformed his understanding of the injected curses in the english language. See: Dr. Su'Zar.
knowing words, understanding their meanings and unlocking their hidden intentions is necessary for magik. how can i caste spells if i don't have a command for words? words are a key ingredient of spells... unless its non-verbal.
indigenous is more accurate. i like autochthonous.

Still chewing on this one....
“Aborigines,” the older English noun, comes directly from the Latin aborigines, a plural noun for the pre-Roman inhabitants of Italy, according to the Oxford English Dictionary. In Latin, ab origine means from the beginning.
When the word entered English in the early 1500s, it was only plural and referred only to the original inhabitants of Latium, the Italian region that includes Rome.
But by the early 1600s, according to the OED, the term was being used more loosely to refer to “the earliest known inhabitants of a particular country.” -- Grammarphobia.com
So "ab origine" is Latin... which doesn't make it any better, lol. Latin was the language of Early Rome. Please believe Rome was deep into spell magic** and all other forms. With their connections to the Etruscans and Phoenicians, please believe those Priestesses and Priests were fully invested in using magic to establish and maintain their orders.. as Romans were original nowhere, they had probable cause to institute 'tricknology.' Spells interwoven inside the language.
So going with Ab- means from, here we are. Where 2 become 1: (MerriamWebster.com)
So while the exoteric meaning addresses #1, the esoteric meaning addresses #2. Just as "Black" means one thing to Black folks and something completely different to the U.S. Legal system.
Then again, I could be completely wrong. Reaching and waxing poetic like a fake-ass English Professor.
Thanks for reading. Leave a comment.
"This is the worst time 4 Black Men to bow down in peaceful resistance. I wont even post a picture because I want no parts of it. Alls I know is I heard the god Stevie Wonder took both knees and I was immediately done. Imma blame his age and give him a pass; the rest of these ninjas? Nope. Firstly, peaceful resistance played out in the 60s. Its almost a Saturn-cycle since those dog days... Secondly, how they gone fight from a position of submission? I guess Dude was making a statement in the humblest way possible. Which is cool. Just for him tho. Everybody can't bow down, it looks like surrender. Its passive-aggression in the purist sense. Don't be that way.
"Everyday Im understanding more and more why Witches jes watch..
Black Folks are truly in the sunken place, all watery. Scared of magik too."
The Almanac says Black is s'pose to assert itself right now: the equinox and the new moon and the occultation and Libra and religious holidays and damn aint it time.. I understand scary, nobody wants to face the dragon. The thing is, that mofo is releasing the Kraken and setting middle-america's fields on fire.. Follow me? The dragon is the most feared and mysterious creature of european literature. The monstrous reptilian-like, mythological creature symbolizes any terror that leaves men feeling vulnerable. Corporatocity and dictatorships are dragons. And for the past too many decades Black folks have been pacified by Lady Liberty and lulled back to sleep. Yet she does not grant us the nurturing supple at her breasts, just silicon and electronic suck toys whenever we begin to cry out in agitation. Nerves overtaxed and stressed by contractual agreements, we turn our anger against our reflections... How we gone buck-up to the water company? How we gone boycott the internet? The darkness of christianity is this- Jesus is a sadomasochist. To turn the other cheek and welcome long-suffering = Kink. Or perhaps, Stockholm Syndrome would be a better classification? Dunno.. I do know this: if we are not kneeling in meditation or proposing a marriage, then taking a knee is officially off the table. Da fuq?
Brothers were doing good on Saturday and going ham on POTUS and the Franchise owners...
Sunday: Our rage is hashtag'd.
We underestimate our opponents.
So many, many rituals are needed. Rituals, in all shapes and forms are required for this exorcism.
Ignorance is contagious. It takes years of reprograming to see with our original, Noble eyes. Unfortunately, we don't have that kinda time.
Flint, Michigan is still without clean drinking and bathing water.
Port Author Texas (P.A.T.) evacuees are being housed in tented, FEMA camps.

Once I saw a documentary about a group of rabbis that were participating in the Kaporot ritual- beheading an 18-wheeler truckload of chickens. They were chanting and singing while swinging the birds around peoples bodies. Then they would cut the birds head off, spilling blood into containers and on the ground... Said it was for absolution- to pay a ransom for the removal of their sins. I bring it up because Kapparot occurred last week, according to the Jewish Calendar.
We are currently in Yamim Nora'im ("Days of Awe") - The Holy High Days.
"Kapparot is a custom in which the sins of a person are symbolically transferred to a fowl. It is practiced by some Jews shortly before Yom Kippur. First, selections from Isaiah 11:9, Psalms 107:10, 14, and 17-21, and Job 33:23-24 are recited; then a rooster (for a male) or a hen (for a female) is held above the person's head and swung in a circle three times, while the following is spoken: "This is my exchange, my substitute, my atonement; this rooster (or hen) shall go to its death, but I shall go to a good, long life, and to peace." The hope is that the fowl, which is then donated to the poor for food, will take on any misfortune that might otherwise occur to the one who has taken part in the ritual, in punishment for his or her sins." http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-custom-of-kapparot-in-the-jewish-tradition
Rabbis say they don't do that anymore because #inhumanesociety.. How much you wanna bet they still doing that -ish in the bush? How much you wanna bet black folks gone call it devil worshipping and want no parts????
Then turn around and pray for a sacrificed god to be their savior?
The same absentee savior that allowed trans-continental chattel slavery and Jim Crow Laws.
The same silent savior that allows some to transmute their sins and others to suffer them.
Kapparah (כפרה), the singular of kapparot, means "atonement" and comes from the Hebrew root
k-p-r, which means "to atone". (Wiki) Yeah, there's something else going on here.... Yall see it?
So, to recap my original statement. Taking a submissive position, symbolically or otherwise, is bonding the very curse we are striving to reverse. Reverse, as in send back... African+American gladiators and their allies are 'taking a knee', while the appointed Priests of the Bible are asserting themselves and absolving their own sins. The group consciousness that allows some to bend a knee in protest in hopes of equity vs an opposing consciousness that supports some in making ritualistic sacrifices to ensure their cohesive, continued equity are polar opposing energies.
All of that to say this: Gas prices jumped $0.10 this weekend. And if I don't pay my electricity bill, this blog is a wrap.

I remember this night very well. I was determined to see Jessica Care Moore live. #swoon Plus, Elder Umar Bin Hassan was there, spitting that Last Poets lingo. #Legend I didn't step out often when my daughter was younger, I was advised to 'keep it old school', b.u.t. that night was the exception. And I had an unforgettable evening.
Jessica Care Moore should be on every spoken word artist's Top 5 List, if for no other reason than she is the Poetic Princess of the genre. I can't call her the Queen because that would dishonor the Queen-Mothers of the Harlem Renaissance and The Black Arts Movement. She was however the first to bring it to a large-scale audience and catapult it into popular culture via Showtime At The Apollo. Yep. I know my herstory. Word 2 Patricia Smith. I had to see Sis perform in my hometown. Epic-ness. Although I also saw her perform at City Colllege, to which she rocked it and made me a fan for life. Y'all I navigated Harlem like an army cadet- fixated on seeing Sis bless the room. I hope y'all can see how big a fan I am of Miss Thang.
This picture: I waited for her Autographs line to disappear. I musta been cheezing hella hard or reflecting her light impeccably because she asked me, “Who are you?” Hahahahaha, but not in the “Who are you weirdo and why are you smiling like a dork?” way. Hahahaha, more like “Yoooo! Sis, Who are you? You seem awesome. ‘Call Me!’” kinda way… Well, in my mind anyways.. In hindsight I think it was the former… See, On FB we... Never Mind. Hahahaha! Somebody tell her I want to participate in her next #BlackGirlsRock! concert. Send her to this post. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo xoxox

Y'all, sometimes I have to remind myself that I intentionally study the occult. I sometimes assume that folks are following me when Im in Decode Mode or when Im channeling the Akashic Records.. I also have to remember how bizarre much of my current reality appeared before my personal revelations. Im constantly assessing the significance of such information... Ive got bills and babies and 10 pounds to lose... which has nothing to do with Virgo and Jupiter, Andromeda, Reptilians or The Law of 44 (Shout Out to KTL Radio)... or does it??? I mean, shit yes it does... However, everybody aint on my frequency. And thats cool. My challenge is two fold: Do I care enough to stretch my communication-interpersonal skills so that I effectively assist others transition onto the path Im walking? And, Can I help without handicapping?
Movies are more than entertainment. Entertainment is more than entertainment:
late 15c., "to keep up, maintain, to keep (someone) in a certain frame of mind," from Middle French entretenir, from Old French entretenir "hold together, stick together, support" (12c.), from entre- "among" (from Latin inter; see inter-) + tenir "to hold" (from Latin tenere, from PIE root *ten- "to stretch").
Sense of "have a guest" is late 15c.; that of "gratify, amuse" is 1620s. Meaning "to allow (something) to consideration, take into the mind" (of opinions, notions, etc.) is 1610s. Related: Entertained; entertaining.
Whereas we watch movies and shows and think its a mindless pastime, because thats how its presented to us, in reality our entertainment is programming our behaviors. I mean, they are called "t.v. programs". And to go one step further, these programs are manipulating the future. The easiest example are the stereotypical characterizations of Africans and African+Americans. For decades, radio, movies and tv programs depicted Africans as a) Savage, b)Primal and c)Inhumane. And for decades, the world despised and feared the entire continent. People who knew nothing about the land other than what was shown in entertainment, refused to travel to the MotherLand for fear of being attacked. "Beware of the African Witch Doctor that cooks people in his iron pot!" Parents taught their children to abhor Africa and Africans. Fastforward to 2017, and although such bigoted programs are considered in bad tastes, many people still hold those images in their minds. Many continue to teach their children to believe the stereotype, thus influencing the future. Or, lets look at the way African+Americans are presented to the world via entertainment. Outside (and sadly, inside) the U.S., Black women are seen as hyper-sexualized, materialistic bitches; neck rolls and finger snaps included. Black men are believed to be petty crooks and ne'er-do-wells; lazy con-artists. Why is this? Because it makes entertainment conglomerates comfortable. They fully understand the power of entertainment. The Prison-Industrial-Complex is a trillion dollar industry, silent as its kept. Its tentacles reach into far too many sectors for there to be a drop in the prison population. Legalized slave labor and unregulated guinea pigs (see 13th Amendment in full.)... nobody's derailing that train. And so, the entertainment machine maintains order and manipulates the future to ensure their agenda meets their quarterly goals. Evil genius...
Unfortunately, far too many refuse to 'call a spade a spade'. The entertainment programs theyve internalized has made them soft and ill-prepared to mentally conceptualize grand-scale, diabolical fuckery. And the entertainment gods know it. Therefore, they put almost everything out in plain sight. #SoEsoteric
I will stop here for now.
