Far too many read and memorize the lines from many books on Kemetic knowledge but have very little idea on how to apply and incorporate the wisdom. Simple book knowledge is no longer enough. The Egyptian principle of Ra is erroneously known as an Egyptian sun god. However, understanding how to apply the principle can have a major positive impact in your life.
- In this article, you will learn what the concept of Ra meant for ancient Egyptians (Kemet).
- You will learn how to connect what you already know from religion to the ancient concept and understand Ra at a deeper level for practical application in life.
- You will be given a simple, but powerful, technique to apply the principle of Ra that will bring clarity in all aspects of your life.
What is Ra?
Ra is the organizing principle of the Egyptian Godhead (Amen, Ra, And Ptah) which underlies all manifested creation. The Kemetic principle of Ra is not an “Egyptian sun god” as so many repeated the early Egyptologist interpretation of the ancient hieroglyphs. Most have also been taught that the Godhead represented competing theologies. This is just not true.
A deeper study of the ancient Egyptian mystery system will reveal a much more sophisticated ideology than most could ever imagine.
It could lead to wisdom beyond simple book knowledge.
The idea we call God in Christianity is called the Neter of Neters by the ancient Egyptians. The Kemetic principle of Ra is the “secret sauce” to the universe. It is the organizing principle of the universe. According to ancient text Ra is the “opener” of creation. Etymologically notice the hieroglyph of /r/ looks like an open mouth. The /a/ means the active and passive principle or masculine and feminine principles are present.
The ancient Africans were giving you a symbolic clue as to how to apply the idea of Ra even with the name itself. This is always the case.
The Egyptian Glyph is symbolic of what the mouth does on one level. It speaks words or makes sounds. Sound or “The Word” is a metaphor for the organizing principle of the universe the ancient Africans used. It is the idea that vibration/sound is how creation organizes itself. Be it thoughts or cells, vibration how they are organized.
The Egyptian book of the dead is the oldest religious writings in the world. In it Ra (holy spirit) is described in this way:
I am Ra…I am the eternal…I am the word…I created the word
It is a euphemism or metaphor for the idea that sound/vibration created everything. Ra IS the word and created the word. As vibrational beings, we are aspects of that creation. In its own way, science says the universe was created by sound or a “big bang,” which is a sound. Science simply states the same idea in a different way.
Christians are familiar with the Kemetic principle of Ra
The bible verse John 1:1 originated in the ancient Egyptian book of the dead. It states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Unbeknownst to most, the bible is full of references and plagiarization of the ancient book of the dead and other ancient Egyptian writings.
The Ancient Khemetains (Pre-dynastic Egypt) understood the power of vibration and its relationship to creating everything.
They created a civilization based on ideas we call the “law of attraction” in modern lingo. If you want to know how to apply the law of attraction in depth, learning the ancient Kemetic principle of Ra is a key.
How do you apply this knowledge beyond it simply being historical facts and information?
The idea of Ra came from within the Egyptian Mystery Systems. The Egyptian Mystery systems trained its initiates in many areas of spiritual science.
Science is defined as a systematized body of knowledge based on observation and experimentation. The Egyptian mystery system fits this definition. It spans thousands of years of observation and experimentation. This science was such a part of ancient Egypt that by the time the Greeks came into contact with them much of the knowledge and metaphysical practices were no longer questioned by the Egyptians, many practices were simply assumed.
If you believe this to be a science, then what are you SYSTEMATICALLY studying, observing, and experimenting with in your everyday life? Or are you doing like most, read, memorize and regurgitate without any way to know how to apply it in your life?
To the Greeks the “ancient Egyptians were magical with superhuman abilities.”
The foundation of this spiritual science permeated ancient Egyptian society. They lived life in the moment enjoying it and savoring it.
In ‘The Egyptian Miracle’ R.A. Schwaller De Lubicz states:
“In ancient Egypt, inhabited by what the Greeks called the healthiest and most religious people of the world, EVERYONE is first of all absorbed in the permanent moment of life.”
The ancient Egyptians APPLIED the knowledge of vibration being the essence of all things. Today the ancient Egyptians would make statements like, “thoughts become things.”
Even though Christian doctrines have distorted the original Egyptian teachings there are still many scriptures that will connect you to very deep and enlighting metaphysical nuggets from ancient Egypt.
One of those nuggets applicable to the idea that thoughts become things is Proverbs 23:7 As he thinketh in his heart, so is he…
This is important for understanding and applying the Kemetic principle of Ra in all aspects of life.
Here is practical use and understanding of the Egyptian Principle of Ra, “The Word”, and the universal principles is the Transmutation Method. It sets a perspective on how to access your subtle vibrational energy.
The Transmutation Method
- Understand you are the “Word”/vibration made flesh (John 1:14), not just Jesus but everyone and everything in creation.
- Your vibration/feelings are important (as he/she thinketh in his/her HEART) as feelings and emotions connect you to your subtle energy.
- What you think materializes into your world, your world is the reflection of your essence; vibration/sound/The Word.
- Life is your creation being reflected back to you; you are your life, your life is you. Out of Ra came all of creation. Out of you comes the creation of your life. Life is feedback showing you your subtle vibrations and frequencies as other individuals and aspects of your life. They are symbols of your essence.
I just gave you some powerful directions for practical application! The ancient Egyptian wisdom teaching is like a bodybuilder built up on steroids compared to the modern day law of attraction teachings.
Law of attraction is a good start, but it’s like dipping your toe in a puddle and the ancient Egyptian wisdom teachings is like swimming in an ocean! It’s an ocean of consciousness!
The Egyptian Principle of Ra
Ra was not a sun god. that is the error taught by too many today. The ancient Khemetians/Egyptians did not worship the sun. The sun is a metaphor or symbol of the idea of enLIGHTenment which ancient Egyptians had a profound respect for. Ra IS the universal principle of sound as its organizing principle. The sun is a manifestation of Ra on the physical plane as are all things. On another level, it is the idea that all things are vibration. Modern science has confirmed the idea that everything vibrates.
“Tum, in regarding himself, creates Atum (biblical Adam) out of Nun, the primeval waters. The ‘big bang’ theory, which sees the universe as a physical event resulting out of a critical build-up of purely physical forces, is a trivialized, de-spiritualized version of this myth. Egypt created a civilization upon it.” John Anthony West, from the book ‘Serpent in The Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt.’
In the quote, he is stating that ancient Egypt created and built a civilization on this principle of vibration or the “Word” as the organizing principle of creation.
Atum is an aspect of Ra in the Godhead of Ra, Atum, and Ptah. If you believe the idea that each part of the Godhead is relevant only to its particular cult then you have accepted erroneous ideas from biases that allow you to believe in the errors.
Think of the Godhead analogous to a person that has different aspects to their life. A woman might be a doctor, a little league soccer coach, and a mother. All are aspects of the same person. Atum is the initial impetus to come into existence, Ptah is the matter within physical creation, and Ra is the organizing principle. All are different aspects of the one. not competing theologies.
There is strong evidence remaining that the ancient Egyptians had knowledge beyond our comprehension. They left a framework for you to learn and apply.
When you want to change any aspect of your life, you must change from within and your world will show you a different reflection without.
Trying to change and control the circumstances and people around you is analogous to looking in the mirror and waiting for the reflection to smile.
- You are an aspect of Ra as a vibrational being. You are the “Word” made flesh. Applying the principle of Ra means you recognize you are a vibrational being. Know that life is feedback from the essence of you as a vibration. Change from within, your inner vibration and the reflection (life) will change.
When there is no enemy within, the enemy without can do no harm – Anceint African Proverb
This understanding of the Egyptian Principle of Ra, is a powerful application of the wisdom teachings. You must be a scientist and not a librarian that simply accumulates books and knowledge. Wisdom is the next level beyond knowledge. Knowledge alone is not enough! From this day forward, apply it! Observe your life rather than react! Experiment with the data that you gather through your experience!
My intent is not only to educate you on the origin of the ideas that became Christianity but to also connect and highlight the deeper practical application of “spiritual” knowledge.
This knowledge of the Egyptian principle of Ra was based in spiritual science. Not superstitious faith as Christianity would have you believe.
Know that you are the “Word” in human form. Know that you are powerful!
