Autumn the Season of Metal

By: William A Rogers

When you enter the meditation and training room at the Harlem Ki Energy Center, you will see a circular symbol which represents the five elements Fire, Water, Wood, Earth and Metal.  This symbol is called the Symbol of Truth by many Taoist because the five elements are considered to be the true foundations of life. Autumn is the season of the element of metal. Each of the five elements has a relationship with the universes and the human body.

The Yin/Yang organs that correspond to the element of Metal are the Lungs (Yin) and the Large Intestine (Yang). It is very important to develop a detoxification strategy in autumn, to prepare for the coming winter. More people die from colon cancer and lung cancer than any other cancer related disease. Special attention should always be given to the care of the lungs and large intestine in the autumn.

The large intestine is the last part of the digestive system in humans and all vertebrate animals. Its function is to absorb water from the remaining indigestible food matter and then pass useless waste material from the body. The large intestine consists of the cecum, colon, rectum and anal canal.

The lungs mix blood with oxygen, and expel used air, carbon dioxide, and other toxins. The lungs control skin and sweat. The following are recommended ways to detoxify the large intestine and the lungs.

Ki Energy treatments always start with detoxifying pressure to vital organs located in the abdominal area and the four lung detox points; a very good reason to have Ki treatments especially in the autumn. If you are not able to schedule an appointment for a Ki Energy treatment at our Harlem wellness center, Taoist master Mantak Chia gives instructions on how to do it yourself in his book Chi Nei Tsang: Internal Organs Chi Massage.

Pure organic Korean Panax ginseng , which is considered the best ginseng in the world has been used as a natural detoxing herb for centuries. This pure form of ginseng was introduced to America only few years ago and can be ordered at the Harlem Ki center, send an email to for additional information.

If you would like to learn more about detox strategies call the Harlem Taoist Ki Energy Center 646 329-6727 and schedule an appointment or visit my blog at   I will also show you special breathing exercises to address the lungs during this autumn season of metal, during my fall meditation, sound vibration and movement Ki training class on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.

If you are interested in attending the Wednesday class call 646 329 6727 to get additional information. Friday September 22nd is the first day of autumn, a perfect time to start KI training and treatments to prepare the body for the cold winter months.

In 1949 Swiss psychologist Carl Jung wrote the foreword for one of the first Western translations of the I Ching. Richard Wilhelm’s translation of this Chinese classic got the attention of the science community because one of the world’s best-known psychologists provided credibility to the 2000-year-old book. A book that many considered too abstruse to be intelligible, or of no value at all. In his foreword Jung introduced the term Synchronicity, which he described as a concept that takes the coincidence of events in space and time as meaning something more than mere chance.

Jung considered synchronicity to be a term that could be used to explain the alignment of universal forces with the life experiences of an individual. Jung believed that many experiences we perceive as coincidences are not coincidence at all, but rather the alignment of these forces creating the situation we find ourselves facing. The I Ching was the foundation of not only Jung’s theory of synchronicity - it also served as the foundation for German philosopher G.F. Hegel’s dialectical theory of history which became the foundation for Karl Marx’s theory of dialectical materialism. The theories of Hegel and Marx made a tremendous impact on the philosophical direction of Western civilization.

I am amazed that a book that is over 2000 years old could serve as the foundation for information technology (Gottfried Von Leibniz’s theory of binary mathematics 1675) and the discovery of the genetic code by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953. In 1675 Leibniz a Germen mathematician and philosopher was introduced to the I Ching and used his study of the text to confirm his system of binary mathematics, which became the bases of computer science.

In 1953 Dr. James Watson and Dr. Francis Crick announced to the World their discovery of the genetic code, consisting of sixty-four binary triplet figures called DNA codons, which correspond directly to the sixty-four binary triplet hexagrams used to consult the I Ching. We are still learning how to use the genetic code and the future development of information technology will change the world.

In the last paragraph of his famous introduction Jung writes “As to the thousands of questions, doubts, and criticisms that this singular book stirs up, I cannot answer these. The I Ching does not offer itself with proofs and results; it does not vaunt itself, nor is it easy to approach. Like a part of nature, it waits until it is discovered. It offers neither facts nor power, but for lovers of self-knowledge, of wisdom - if there be such - it seems to be the right book.”

All things happen for a reason and there is no such thing as a coincidence if you are reading this dialog and you are interested in learning how to used the I Ching to improve the quality of your life, perhaps you should call 646 329-6727 and schedule an appointment at the Ki Energy Center or send an email to for further information. Many believe that what we call a coincidence is a message from the mind of the universe. Jung used the term Synchronicity to describe this phenomenon.

How Far Can You See

How Far Can You See?

In a previous article I wrote about how important it is to be aware of and to learn how to use our all-seeing third eye, also known as the pineal gland. The third eye is in the front of the brain behind our forehead in between the two eyes we are aware of.  Many are not aware of the third eye, but many may not truly understand how far we can really see with the two eyes we are aware of.

One of my favorite Taoist authors Wu Wei answers the question of How Far Can You See in his book “The I Ching Handbook” by saying “Everything we see is inside our heads inside of each eye are close to hundred million rods and cones. These rods and cones are stimulated by the rays of light that enter your eye which, in turn, create impulses that travel along the optic nerve system to the brain.”

The brain receives those impulses and forms a picture. That picture is inside your head and formed by your brain, within your brain. Master Wei also writes that “We never actually see an object, the only thing we see are light rays being radiated by or reflected from objects.” The view we have of the world is simply a picture that appears to be outside, but actually it is all inside your head.

When I started thinking about this the Magic Eye 3D computer-generated illusions came to mind. If you look at the Magic Eye illusion for a while, a 3D image seems to “magically” appear, this will happen for some quicker then others.  I use a Magic Eye book at our center and in workshops as a tool to explain the concept of enlightenment. According to Wu Wei “Changing the way you see things is much easier then changing the things you see.”

We often react to the pictures we see in our heads based on social programming and past experiences. That’s why some will see a glass as half full others, while others will see the same glass as being half empty. This is another reason why I believe it is important to activate and learn to use the wisdom of our third eye; because we really can’t see that far with just our two eyes. It’s all in your head.

The Awakening of the Third Eye

The Awakening of the Third Eye
Taoist masters of old considered the third eye, ones guide through the invisible world. Human vision is limited and three dimensional; the third eye provides intuitive insight and vision into the fourth dimension which is the pathway to spiritual enlightenment. The material world can be very stressful and illusory; the awakening of the third eye is the first step in seeing past the matrix.

The mind must be in an Alpha state for the third eye to be awakened. Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Ki Training and Treatments are avenues one can take to reach an Alpha mental state, where the brainwave frequency is 9 to 14 cycles per seconds. Ki Energy Treatments will allow an individual to experience a high Alpha brainwave frequency between 12 to 14 cycles per seconds.  A fifteen minute Ki Treatment is the equivalent to a thirty minute meditation session.   

After a Ki Treatment you will feel in the present, relaxed, and balanced, you will be in Alpha. Many who try Meditation and other energy exercises become discouraged and stop before they learn to use the exercise to reach the Alpha state. Ki Treatments provide the opportunity to experience oneness, a step towards opening the third eye and being in tune with the mind of the universe.

The Mind, Body and Spirit must be in balance to understand the intuitive visual insights of the Third Eye. Life does not always have to be stressful; something that living in the Matrix will never allow you to understand.  The Third Eye will allow you to see past the Matrix of the material world. Energy training and treatments will put you on that path.

During my Wednesday Ki training class, we practice an energy movement exercise called Haven and Earth the first movement in this two-part exercise is a training method to help activate the third eye. In ancient Kemet (Egypt) learning to understand and use the power of the third eye was the first step for initiates to master before being allowed to study the wisdom of the ancient mysteries.

Religious persecution made the practice of this ancient wisdom a crime against God, secret societies were developed because of this. The founding fathers of this country were all members of secret societies that understood and used the wisdom of ancient Kemet. This is the reason why the all-seeing third eye at the top of a pyramid can be found on a U S dollar bill; knowledge and wisdom is power.

It is important to understand we have three eyes and the most important eye only a few are aware of. The third eye also known as the Pineal Gland located in the middle of the brain between the two eyes that we are aware of. Learning to activate understand and use the third eye is the most powerful knowledge we can have. It allows us to tap into our intuitive wisdom; the highest level of intelligence of the past, present and future.

To open the third eye, you must first be aware of it. Meditation, Ki treatments and training are an excellent way to start. 

Sacred Geometry
The Great Pyramid of Giza was built using sacred geometry, which is defined as how the spirit integrates with matter through geometric form, structure and design. The geometric marvels of the Great Pyramid, the oldest standing structure in the world, have never been replicated, even with today’s advanced technology. It is the only structure in existence aligned true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error.
When you take in the fact that the Great Pyramid lies in the gravitational center of the continents; the exact center of all the land area of the world, one can only wonder about the intelligence of the builders. The sacred cubit is an ancient measurement found carved in stone just above the entrance to the King’s Chamber inside the Great Pyramid.

In 1991 the late inventor Slim Spurling (In the Mind of a Master) developed a copper ring using the sacred cubit measurement equaling 20.6 inches.  Spurling discovered that the rings using this cubit length have a natural resonant frequency of 144 MHz, which is a harmonic of light speed. It is also a measurement of a wavelength in the standing gravity wave of the planet.

Further study and experimentation lead to the discovery of the Lost Cubit measurement. The Lost Cubit has a natural resonant frequency of 177MHz which corresponds to the frequency of DNA, thereby facilitating DNA repair and the capability of consciously controlled DNA activation and ascension.
Thanks to the research done by Slim Spurling, there are now energy tools on the market that make use of ancient Egyptian sacred geometry to create a healing energy that modern quantum physic pioneers such as Nikola Tesla (1899) and Albert Einstein (1920) called Scalar Energy or Zero-Point Energy.

Scalar energy strengthens chemical bonds within DNA, making it more resistant to damage. Scalar energy improves the function of the Immune System; it improves mental focus and can cancel out the harmful effects of 60 cycle power line pollution, electromagnetic fields, radiation and microwaves.

If you visit my blog I have a number of articles on the amazing period in early Egypt where science and technology was more advanced than what we have today. The Great Pyramid of Giza still stands, built with science and technology that the modern world is just discovering.

You cannot truly understand the amazing intelligence of the culture that built the Great Pyramid unless you take the time to google the many features of this magnificent structure, built with sacred geometric technology. As many of you know, I have been greatly influenced by the work of Wayne B. Chandler (Ancient Future) who provides scholarly research that points out the many contributions the early Egyptian culture have made in the development of mankind.

What is also amazing to me is that in 2018 I am writing about energy wellness tools constructed by using sacred geometric forms, a technology that was developed in Africa (Egypt) around 3000 BC; energy tools that can be used to address harmful exposure to AM/FM radio waves, VHF/UHF Televisions waves, Radar, Microwave ovens and radio-frequency energy exposure emitted from cell phones. A true example of, Ancient Future.

The Manchurian Candidate

The Manchurian Candidate

Last week I was able to watch both versions of the Manchurian Candidate on Amazon, the first one came out in 1962 and starred Frank Sinatra and Laurence Harvey the remake came out in 2004 and starred Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber. The plot of the films was interesting, soldiers were captured, and brain washed one of the soldier’s a US senator’s son was programmed to become a deep cover spy and assassin.

This plot was interesting to me because I have always been fascinated by how the conscious and unconscious minds work. We all are victims of social programming, most of the things that we believe to be right or wrong, good or bad are programmed thoughts that we were exposed to from an early age. Then there is the power of suggestion which can be very subjective to both the conscious and unconscious mind.

Many believe that even when we were in our mother’s womb, negative emotions and experiences that our mother might have had, can influence our behavior years later even when we become adults. Then there is Hypnosis which is defined as a state of consciousness in which a person apparently loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction.

The intriguing thing about any type of programming of one’s unconscious mind is that the person is not consciously aware of the programming but will react if a program suggestion is activated in the unconscious programmed mind. I will always remember the scene in the 1962 version of Manchurian Candidate when Laurence Harvey was playing solitaire on a winter night in a bar near Central Park.

Harvey was programmed to obey any command after seeing the Queen of Diamonds, after seeing the queen of spades and hearing a suggestion to go jump in the lake, in an unrelated conversation. Harvey walked out of the bar took a cab to Central Park and jumped into the ice-cold water of the lake; that’s when Sinatra realized Harvey had been programmed.

If you find yourself doing something and you have no logical explanation for your action, it can be due to some type of programming, someone or something activated an unconscious program that you responded to.
When this happens, many will make up an excuse to justify an illogical action, some will even blame the devil. 

There is the story about a subject under hypnosis who is told by the hypnotist that he should take of his jacket when the hypnotist touches his right ear and put on his jacket when the hypnotist touches his left ear. After coming out of the hypnotic state the person started making up excuses to explain to himself and to others the illogical action of taking off and putting on his jacket repeatedly.

The sub-plot of the 1962 Manchurian Candidate film was the possibility of Russians weaponizing a mind control project to create a political coup by gaining influence and control of the President of the United States.  The sub-plot of the more recent film made an international private equity corporation responsible for weaponizing a mind control project to create a political coup by electing an American president. As the saying goes sometimes reality can be stranger than fiction.

Summer Wellness

Summer Wellness
 June 21st is the official first Day of summer. Ancient Taoist masters developed wellness theories for each season utilizing the Five Elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Fire. Fire is the element of summer. For those who wish to use a proactive approach to health I will discuss a few Taoist concepts for summer health maintenance.

The Heart is the Yin organ associated with the Fire element of summer and the Small Intestine is the Yang organ. Mars is the planet, red is the color, love and joy are positive summer emotions and hate and impatience are negative summer emotions.
Heart attacks are more common in the summer and emotion plays a major part. Negative emotions such as anger and impatience can be a greater risk to the heart in the summer.  

Negative emotions also create problems for our small intestine.
The small intestine is the digestive tract between the stomach and cecum. Absorption and digestion are not the only functions of the small intestine; according to Taoist theory the small intestine also helps the body digest unsettled emotions.
During the hot summer months negative emotions of anger, worry, sadness, fear and impatience should be avoided as much as possible. If the small intestine becomes over loaded with negative emotions it can become unhealthy. An unhealthy small intestine can cause hormonal and menstrual disorders for women. It can also develop mucus in the lungs and be the cause of back pain and varicose veins.

We are familiar with how the negative emotions of anger and sadness can create problems for a weak heart but worry and fear can also have a negative effect on the heart. The major problem here is that most are not aware of this build up until it is too late. That is why it is wise to be proactive don’t wait until you feel a problem with your health. When you feel something is wrong it is something that has been building for some time which means in most cases it will take some time to cure naturally. 

Harmful negative emotions are due to a lack of control of the conscience mind. The negative emotions that we carry, emotions that make us sick are usually a story that plays over and over in our mind. The story in most likely due to some past experience or a mental prediction of a future issue that causes fear or worry.

The Harlem Ki Energy Center can help you develop a proactive approach to summer health thought meditation classes, and special Ki small intestine organ massage treatments. Ki treatments can help the small intestine eliminate toxins caused by negative emotions. Meditation can eliminate negative thoughts which can help develop the positive summer emotions of love and joy.

Hearts of Fire

Hearts of Fire

Hearts of fire create love's desire”, that’s the way of the world according to
Earth, Wind and Fire, one of my favorite groups. Hearts of fire had a different meaning to me in 1978 than it has now. We're moving into the summer season - the season of the element of Fire. The five elements, Earth, Wood, Fire, Water and Metal, are used in Taoist healing practices in China and Korea.  Each element is connected to a season, a Yin body organ, and a Yang body organ.

During the Fire element of summer, attention should be placed on bringing balance to the heart (yin) and the small intestine (yang) the fire organs of summer. The negative emotions that create an imbalance in the summer fire organs, such as over excitement of any kind, anger and anxiety, could create health problems. Male/female relationships heat up during the summer months which, if not monitored, can lead to over excitement, anxiety and, in some cases, anger. Remember, you are not your thoughts. Your thoughts are a story in your head.  When you start making your thoughts a reality for yourself and others, you're likely to create an imbalance in the heart.

We tend to eat out more often during the summer months, mainly a lot of junk food. We tend to drink more liquids but usually not enough water. This can create an imbalance in the small intestine. Emotional toxins can also accumulate in the small intestine, usually caused or influenced by an imbalance in the heart organ.  If you're interested in ways to help your small intestine eliminate toxins and detox, I'd suggest investing in a body cleanse format during the summer.

A great self-help book is Chi Nei Tsang: Internal Organs Chi Massage, by Mantak and Maneewan Chia. This book has an easy-to-follow small intestine massage that’s very helpful during summer fire months. I also focus on internal organs when giving Chunsoo, a Taoist Ki Energy treatment.

Have fun during the summer season but try to maintain a balance in the heart and small intestine, the fire organs of summer. If you practice controlling the negative emotions that can affect the fire organs by clearing your head of unrealistic stories that create most negative emotions it will help you in maintaining that balance. A cool head can bring balance to the fire energy of summer.

Call the Ki Energy Center at 646 329-6727 or email to schedule an appointment to explore ways to reduce the stress that can development during the Fire season.

The Power of Autosuggestion

The power of Autosuggestion

Autosuggestion means making a definite and specific suggestion to yourself according to Joseph Murphy in his popular book “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”.  The average person is not aware of the powers of the subconscious mind and how thinking can create reality.

All too often negative autosuggestions are the major factors in the lack of productivity, health issues and unhappiness. On the other hand positive autosuggestions can address fear and doubt and allow the seemingly impossible to become possible.
Our conscious mind makes use of the five senses and our life history to develop what we believe to be the truth about ourselves and others. The thoughts that we believe to be true are then sent to our subconscious mind that in turn will turn our thoughts into a reality.

Joseph Murphy explains autosuggestion this way: “What thoughts, beliefs, opinions, or dogmas you write, engrave, or impress on your subconscious mind, you shall experience them as the objective manifestation of circumstances, conditions, and events”.

When the brain receives thoughts from the conscious reasoning mind and those thoughts are accepted to be true they are sent to the solar plexus also known as the brain of your abdomen (your subconscious mind) where they become flesh and made to manifest in your life experience both internal and external.

If you believe you cannot achieve a goal you will encounter internal and external barriers that will keep you from achieving that goal. A major factor in negative Autosuggestion is a term called heterosuggestion. Heterosuggestion means suggestions from another person. From an early age many have received negative heterosuggestions about who they are and what they can achieve in life. We are who we think we are and we can achieve what we believe we can achieve.

Positive heterosuggestions can develop positive autosuggestions in individuals statements like black is beautiful in the 60’s was an important heterosuggestion that developed self-pride in large numbers of American from African descent who for years had been subjected with negative media heterosuggestions due to the racism in this country.

This type of negative heterosuggestion created inferiority complexes that continue to exist in the subconscious minds of many of many people of color today. The election of President Barack Obama sent a powerful and positive heterosuggestion to many blacks in America and the world, a fact that often goes unnoticed.  I believe that this is a reason for the current racial backlash we are experiencing in government and parts of the public sector.

It is very important to guard against allowing negative direct or indirect heterosuggestions to influence your thinking. If you do not this method of thinking will always develop into negative autosuggested thoughts of fair and doubt.
Remember you are what you think you are, and you can be what you think you can be, use positive autosuggestion to help you achieve your goals both short and long term. Never allow anyone to use negative heterosuggestions to create fear and doubt that will prevent you from being all that you can be.

The Water Books

The Water Books

Water has always been an important symbol of Taoism. The legendary Taoist philosopher Lao Tzu wrote in the “Tao Te Ching” (a book considered the foundation of Taoism) that “nothing under heaven is more yielding, but when it attacks the hardest substance cannot prevail”. Over 70 percent of the earth is covered with water, and 70 percent of an infant’s body consists of water.

Masaru Emoto has conducted years of research focused on how water responds to music, words, and thought. Emoto’s research also gives examples of how humans can interface with water from a spiritual plane. With the use of high-speed photography of magnified water crystals, Emoto’s research ( shows how water crystals can change based on positive or negative influences.

I became aware of Mr. Emoto’s research when it was featured in the popular new age movie “What the Bleep Do We Know?” In the film Mr. Emoto’s water experiments shows how words such as “I love you” can create beautiful star snowflake-like crystals in crystallized water and how negative words like “I hate you” create odd, unappealing crystal images in crystallized water.

In his many books on water, Emoto shows pictures of how music and even thought can change how crystallized water drops appear. Two of my favorite are “Love Thyself: The Message from Water” and The Hidden Message in Water”. If you consider how music, thought, and words can affect crystallized drops of water, imagine what they can do to the water in the human body.

We understand the health related relationship between health and the body’s need for water. Mr. Emoto’s research provides evidence that water can also be viewed in other ways when it comes to wellness and stress reduction. You will find a number of people in the medical community that disagree with Mr. Emoto’s research but “What the Bleep Do We Know?” There was a time when many thought the world was flat.

We now realize that negative thinking can lead to illness, and relaxed positive thinking can be healthy, we also know that over 50% of the human body consists of water. It is not difficult to see how negative thoughts can be harmful when you see how they affect water in Emoto’s research found in his water book pictures. There are many natural options available to maintain good health. Healing always starts from within. At the Ki Energy Center we use meditation, energy movements, and energy treatments to relax the mind and reduce stress.

If you visit you can pick-up one of Mr. Emoto’s water books and see the pictures of how negative thoughts and words can affect the water in your body, is it no wonder that stress caused by negative and fearful thinks is the foundation for 90% of our health problems. For natural options to address stress visit the Ki Center by calling 646 329-6727 or send an email to for further information on this subject.

Nitric Oxide the Miracle Molecule

Nitric Oxide the Miracle Molecule
 Dr.  Louis J. Ignarro, faculty member in the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology at UCLA’s School of Medicine, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1998 for discovering nitric oxide’s role as a cardiovascular signaling molecule. Dr. Ignarro’s research showed that when the nitric oxide molecule enters a cell it stimulates a process that relaxes and dilates blood vessels which increases the flow of blood. This increased flow of blood enhances the delivery of healing oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body.

There are countless nitric oxide molecules in our bodies, but the body’s production of nitric oxide reduces as we grow older. The loss of nitric oxide in the body between the ages of 40 to 60 years of age is about 85%. This reduction is the main cause of the hardening of arteries, heart disease, stroke, plaque buildup, chronic pain, memory loss, impotence, lack of energy and endurance along with a number of other wellness issues associated with ageing.

As we age, the lack of nitric oxide will causes our arteries to become narrow decreasing the flow of oxygen and blood to our cells and organs. This leads to wrinkles, high blood pressure and thin and gray hair. The loss of nitric oxide can cause one to become obese and or diabetic with age.

While the discovery of the function of the nitric acid molecule, which plays a major role in the aging process was extremely significant, Dr. Ignarro’s discovery that the molecule can be activated by supplementation will be crucial to those older than 40.

There are a number of nitric oxide supplements on the market. However, I plan to use and recommend the usage of Cardio Miracle, which is considered to be the most effective source of nitric oxide supplementation in the world. The Cardio Miracle formula is a culmination of over 10 years of research and collaboration with leading experts on delivering nitric oxide to the tissues in the body.

I was impressed with the fact that the Cardio Miracle vegan formula was developed after extensive discussions with nutritional, alkaline and vegan experts. As a result of those discussions, Cardio Miracle has been carefully sourced and tested. The organic vegetable and fruit powders used in the formula are the finest in the world.

If you are older than 40 years of age, I strongly recommend doing research on nitric oxide. If you are between the ages of 50 and 60 years old, your body is not producing the amount of nitric oxide necessary to address the aging process. The wonderful discovery of the function of this miracle molecule provides the opportunity to develop supplements that can reactivate the production of nitric oxide in aging bodies. For many, this could mean a new lease on life.

If you would like to learn more about nitric oxide, there is a lot of information online about this miracle molecule. Cardio Miracle is not available to the public yet, but if you would like to learn how to get this nitric oxide supplement formula, send an email to or call 646 329-6727 .

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th
Do you often wondered why Friday the 13th is considered a day of misfortune and bad luck?  Whenever I have a question about numbers I seek advice from my good friend Lloyd Strayhorn. Lloyd Strayhorn is one of the most learned African American numerologists in the world.

In Ancient Kemet the number 13 was a symbol of power. Lloyd writes “the ancients described 13 as a “symbol of power, which if wrongly used, wreaks destruction upon itself” “He who understands the number 13 will be given power and dominion”. Until very recently the wisdom and philosophical thoughts of ancient Kemet were keep secret from the masses. The political power of religion made the study and/or practice of the knowledge and Mysticism of ancient Kemet a crime against the church.

It took 359 years for the Catholic Church on November 1, 1992 to admit that Galileo Galilei was not guilty of heresy for his belief that the earth and all other planets revolve around the Sun. Pope John Paul II acknowledged in a speech that “the church would rectify the wrong.” This was a major reason only members of secret societies had access to ancient Kemet wisdom. Galileo was influenced by Nicolaus Copernicus who was influenced by Aristarchus of Samos a Greek astrologer who studied in ancient Kemet centuries earlier during the time of Alexander. 

Major figures in the development of the symbolism and philosophy of the new American government, leaders like Benjamin Franklyn, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington were members of secret societies they were either Masons or Rosicrucian. While being slave holders, the founding fathers built the symbolic foundation of the new government based on the number 13 using the ancient Kemetic wisdom and power attached to that number.

 The number13 is used thirteen times on the United States Seal. There are 13 stars, 13 strips, 13 arrows, 13 berries and 13 letters in the words on the seal. The Kemet pyramid on the one dollar bill has 13 blocks; the eagle on the other side is holding 13 arrows the United State started with 13 colonies, there were 13 signers of the Declaration of Independence and the corner stone of the first White House was laid on the 13th of October 1792 as part of a Masonic ceremony.

The true understanding and interpretation of the death figure on the 13th Tarot card symbolically did not mean a physical death or misfortune but a death to an old way of life and way of thinking; a change for the better. The founding fathers understood the symbolic power of the number 13. I hope you look at the number 13 in a different way now; especially those who expressed an anxiety coming to our Ki wellness Center located at 13 West 122nd Street.

On April 28th 2018 the first day of Harlem Holistic Wellness Week 2018 thirteen wellness practitioners will take part in the first annual Sacred Commerce Pop-up Wellness Expo.  The power and energy of the number 13 and the ancient Kemetic, concept of Sacred Commerce which made, People, Planet, Profit and Spiritually the bottom line in trade; will be the spiritual foundations for this annual wellness week event.
For more information on the Sacred Commerce Pop-up wellness expo and other events during HHWW 2018 visit or call 646 329-6727

Hatshepsut Queen of Commerce

Hatshepsut: Queen of Commerce        
Queen Hatshepsut ruled ancient Kemet (Egypt) from 1479 to 1458 BC; she was the longest reigning   female pharaoh in history. During her 21 year reign Queen Hatshepsut used commerce as a tool to raise consciousness and a spiritual path towards self-realization.  A merchant priesthood was developed to teach and utilize the concept of Sacred Commerce to achieve the vision of the first queen of commerce.

Sacred Commerce is a wonderful book by Aymen Sawaf and Rowan Gabrielle. This work serves as a foundation for a movement focused on revitalizing Hatshepsut’s concept of reconnecting commerce and spiritually. People, Planet, Profit and spiritually are the four bottom lines in sacred commerce. Profit is the only bottom in most businesses in today’s world. 

Many well argue that the thought of connecting commerce and spiritually is not realistic in the competitive business environment we live in “however”; there are a growing number of entrepreneurs who are beginning to realize that success can be achieved by making people and the planet important bottom lines in their strategic business plans.

On Saturday April 28th the first annual Sacred Commerce Wellness Expo will be one of the events to kick of Harlem Holistic Wellness Week 2018. This event will take place at Imagenations’s Raw Space Gallery located at 2031 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. (bet. 121 and 122nd streets). Thirteen holistic wellness businesses will be invited to exhibit at this event which will be free to the public. The number 13 is a very spiritual and powerful number in Kemetic philosophy.

Harlem Holistic Wellness Week April 28th to May 5th is a marketing platform to promote holistic wellness organizations and businesses that focus on improving the quality of life of people.
