Beyoncé channels Yoruba Goddess Oshun.

I loved Bey’s performance at the GRAMMYs on Sunday. I loved it even more because one of the two songs performed, was co-written by my good friend Ingrid Burley!

Some people are saying that Bey’s look was inspired by the Yoruba goddess Oshun. The Yoruba people are “descendants from variety of West African communities” who are “united by geography, history, religion and most importantly language.” The main countries where the Yoruba people live are Nigeria, Togo and Benin. In their religion, Oshun is the “goddess of water, fertility, motherhood, and the passing of the generations.” This deity is also responsible for blessing women with twins. As you [may] know, Bey is pregnant with twins. For more information on the Yoruba, click here.

I’ve always loved Bey, but I love her even more for continuing to use her platform to help [re]awaken the psyche of Africans, especially those living in the United States of America.

This building was breathtaking, although none of the religious figures displayed were depicted as being persons of color! Aside from that, I loved how Christianity and Islam have been merged together. Although many believers think the two religions are vastly different and are still fighting unnecessary wars in the name of their respective Gods based on this false belief, the truth is, that these two religions have many similarities due in part to the fact that both religions (as well as Judaism) have African origins. When are we going to stop being so divided and realize that we are all ultimately praying to and worshiping the same “God”?

“This chapter is being closed with ‘…the last act of the Osirian drama, the weighing of the “heart” in the scales of Thoth…,’ etc., as taken from the BOOK OF THE DEAD, the 125th Chapter — also known as the ‘NEGATIVE CONFESSIONS.’ One will see the similarity between that which is today called the ‘TEN COMMANDMENTS OF MOSES’ and source of its origin — the ‘HYM OF ADORATION TO THE GOD OSIRIS…'”

* In African Origins of the Major “Western Religions,” Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan lists the same “Negative Confession” twice. However, he goes on to state:

Note that this “Drama” took place approximately more than one-thousand three-hundred years to one-thousand three-hundred and fifty years (1,300 to 1,350) before Moses was supposedly driven out of Western Sais (Egypt) to the Eastern limits –Mt. Sinai — by Pharoah Rameses II between c1225 and 1232 B.C.E. An account of this document was discovered written on a black basalt-slab (stone) in the ruins of the Temple of Ptah at Memphis, Sais (renamed Egypt by the Hebrews and Greeks). This stone, itself, only dates back to the 8th century B.C.E. It was prepared by Shabaka — the Ethiopian (Kushite) Pharoah of Egypt — founder of the Temple of Ptah. It was Pharoah Shabaka’s attempt to preserve the words of his very much more ancient indigenous African ancestors, whose descendants are today called “Negroes, Bantus, Pygmies, Nilotes” and other such names. It is estimated (by Egyptologists) that the original script was written around 1,300 years before Moses (Moshe) — the messenger of Yahweh (Jehovah), 2575 years before the birth of the Christian’s God — Jesus Christ, and 3,197 years before the Moslem (Muslim) Prophet of Allah — Mahamet. Why, then, is it told that the first time man was given only “TEN” of these one-hundred and forty-seven (147) “CONFESSIONS” — called “COMMANDMENTS” — was when God allegedly gave them to Moses at Mt. Sinai?” Because each religion that followed the other in this region co-opted most of the myths and traditional dogmas of the former — Judaism, through Moses, being no exception to this rule of historical tradition.

“To say at this time that ‘Moses, of the Hebrew (Jewish) religion and peoples, was an indigenous African (Black or Negro),’ would create a catastrophic consternation among theological racists and bring down all sorts of ‘anti-Semitic’ charges by the same people who are equally as strenuously would admit that ‘Moses was born in Egypt,’ at the same instance, forgetting that Egypt is in Africa. Why? Because Egypt, in most European-American minds, is some sort of a mythical place remote from any place near Africa. This would not stop them from saying that ‘Moses was found floating down the Nile River in a bulrush basket,’ conveniently forgetting that the Nile River’s source begins in Uganda; also that there are two Niles, the White and the Blue; and that the White Nile is more than four-thousand miles long, flowing northwards through Sudan (Nubia) and Egypt (Sais) and finally emptying into the Mediterranean (Egyptian) Sea. They seem to forget that the Blue Nile’s main source of water comes from the Ethiopian Highlands — at Lake Tana; and that the other source of the Nile — the Atbara River, also starts in the Ethiopian Highlands and flows into Sudan — where it joins both the Blue and White Niles.”

watch the trailer for Nate Parker’s highly anticipated film BIRTH OF A NATION.

“Hackers have claimed that a number of Islamic State supporters’ social media accounts are being run from internet addresses linked to the Department of Work and Pensions. A group of four young computer experts who call themselves VandaSec have unearthed evidence indicating that at least three ISIS-supporting accounts can be traced back to the DWP. Every computer and mobile phone logs onto the internet using an IP address, which is a type of identification number. The hacking collective showed Mirror Online details of the IP addresses used by a trio of separate digital jihadis to access Twitter accounts, which have been used to spread extremist propaganda. At first glance, the IP addresses seem to be based in Saudi Arabia, but upon further inspection using specialist tools they appeared to link back to the DWP.”

According to the Department for Work and Pensions’ website, the DWP is:

is responsible for welfare, pensions and child maintenance policy. As the UK’s biggest public service department it administers the State Pension and a range of working age, disability and ill health benefits to over 22 million claimants and customers.

This is all being done by the global elite as a pretext to achieve a “new world order.” You are being lied to. Wake up!
