We have embarked on a journey, and took this Imani week to talk about the #NguzoSabaChallenge, of course staying true to the game and making sure we talk about the principle of the day. Speaking of the principle of the day, we are on the principle of Ujamaa. Ujamaa to us is the green key to the whole system. It was the way that Ujamaa lined up in our system that let us know that the Ancestors were with us. Ujamaa in our system aligns with gratitude, reciprocity and the color green. I would also throw out the hermetic principle that it lines up with but that might be a little overkill. So Let’s look at the spiritual resources that are opened up when we apply ourselves to this system.
"If we apply ourselves to the principles tied to Ujamaa in a revolutionary way and use the resources that are opened up to us, we can build the kind of world that our Ancestors would have wanted for us."
In the #NguzoSabaChallenge system we introduce the user to the power of ritual, and process. Both of which are powered by our belief, and trust. In order for either to work we have to pull on our personal Imani. By doing this we bring the process to life. We turn on the switch to begin having experiences in our life that are beyond normal explanations. We begin to see the world with new eyes, and slowly begin to bring the 5 parts of our being into alignment. Which opens us up to the power of our principles and our Ancestors. This is why we added Intuition into our conversations. Because we overlooked it, but it was through plugging to the intuition that we are able to receive signals from the Ancestral realm. I have many personal accounts from my life that I could talk about when it come to this resource. Actually this is an underused resource in our community. Because we were taught that in order for it to be real, and true it had to be proved. We never realized that was only true when it came to us and our experiences.
"We never realized that was only true when taking the western approach to spirituality and magic. But that it was also just as real, and valid as any other spiritual practice. That as Africans we have always engaged our intuition whether we realized it or not. To our Ancestors it was simply the way they interacted with the world and not just with their gods."
In order to hold us where we are it is required that we stay disconnected from our Ancestors. We had to be fed spooky beliefs about the spirit, and drugged up immediately if we made any contact. It is through our Intuition that our Ancestors reach out to us and inform us about things that we should not know. Giving strategies that can and have won the day. This process allows you to connect and begin your dialog with your personal Ancestors. It will take time because the beliefs that we leave this world with may hinder what we can do on that side. But we are beginning to awaken and understand that we have a responsibility toward our Ancestors and in turn they have a responsibility to us. We have a perfect reciprotic relationship that we have to begin to use. Through building this relationship we will begin healing ourselves, and even some of the people in our direct bloodline.
"The Intuition is coming alive again. This is how it works and how you can work with your Ancestors to bring about great change in the world!"

Once again the goal was to keep you separated from your Ancestors. Get you to fear them, and begin to focus your Imani energy toward something that would and could not aid you. The reason for this was to smash your most important sense. The sense I am talking about was your intuition and what it does and did for you. Smashing any of the senses can make you crippled and it would make navigating the world harder, and that is exactly what is happening with us, but we don’t realize that we are missing this sense. To move in life acting as if, even though we realize something is missing, we can’t put words on it. "You owe it to yourself to break the chains of your past slavery, and reclaim your most important sense."
Some of our relatives are born with a powerful sense or intuition, but because there is no one to talk to or anyone to train them, they can often become overwhelmed, and may begin using alcohol and drugs to cope with all that they see. Unfortunately This skill is seen today as problematic, but in times of old these people held high positions among the people. Rather than the crazy person that every family has.
"Many people have a great natural intuition, but do not know how to deal with all of the information they receive. "
Please understand you will truly be plugging into some ancient wisdom but it will not becoming from a book all the time. You will receive access to the wisdom accumulated by your personal Ancestors. Especially those who have escaped the fantasy erected by our west asian cousins.
"Learn the lost wisdom of our great African Ancestors."
Now before we finish up for the day I want to leave you with a mental exercise before you leave, to show you how Imani can create actual resources out of absolutely nothing. So what I need you to do is name the 7 continents as you learned them in school. Take a second pause the podcast and get a piece of paper and write them down. Now I want you to recite the list while looking at a world map. Now point out each continent. Now I want you to find the continent of europe!!! I want you to really look at Europe and tell me where Europe begins and Asia ends???? Europe is a concocted idea that was pulled out of the collective imagination of white folk. Your whole life you believed that this place was a place but it really does not exist. It is a creation, and the question that hopefully you wrestle with is, if they can make up a whole continent what else can be done with a little Imani? What if I invested my Imani in me and began creating value for those around me. Hell what if I invested some of my Imani into my Ancestors what would happen?
