Kwesi Ra Nehem Ptah Akan
"Amenet (Amenat, Amenaa(t))
Mikyia mo (Greetings),
This is a picture of Amenet. In Keneset () and Kamit (), Amen is the Great God while Amenet is the Great Goddess. Together, Amen and Amenet function as One Divine Unit, The Supreme Being. They give birth to Ra and Rait (the Creator and the Creatress) Who then go out, Together, to create the Universe. Just as you, as an Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) human being, can direct the energy in your body to do certain things, so do Amen and Amenet (The Supreme Being) direct Their Children (Ra and Rait) to create the Universe.
Amen is called Ny-Amen (Nyame) by the Akan today. Amenet is called Ny-Amen-waa (Nyamewaa) by the Akan. It was the europeans who took the focus off of the Goddess Amenet and the Goddess Rait and only focused on the Gods Amen and Ra. However, there were always temples to Amenet and Rait in Kamit. The same has occured with respect to Nyamewaa (Onyamewaa) in Akan culture. europeans and Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) influenced by europeans (christianity, islam, etc.) only focus on the God, Nyame (Onyame) and rarely, if ever, mention the Great Mother, Nyamewaa.
Creation cannot exist without Amen and Amenet working Together to produce Their Children, Ra and Rait., Who are then directed by Amen and Amenet to Create the Universe.
We must also realize that Ra (Nyankonton) and Amen (Nyame) are Two separate and distinct Entities. The same goes with Rait (Nyankopon) and Amenet (Nyamewaa).
Ra is not another “title” for Amen, nor is Nyankopon simply a “title” of Nyame. Amen and Amenet give birth to Ra and Rait, thus Ra and Rait are subordinate to Amen and Amenet. Nyankopon and Nyankonton are subordinate to Nyame and Nyamewaa.
We have been done a great disservice by anglicized Ghanaians and misguided scholars in our community who sought/seek to fit our religion into fake-religion and its foolish notion of monotheism. They did this by reducing many different Deities into "names" or "appellations" of the One “God”. This is ignorant and inaccurate. Monotheism is the product of the inferior mind of the caucasian. The whites and their offspring cannot communicate with the Abosom, Orisha, Vodu, etc., so they decided to write The Deities out of religion totally. This was also done to keep us from communicating with the Forces of Nature. It was/is a means by which the whites and their offspring exercise control over many of us. It is also the basis of fake-religion.
[christianity, islam, hebrewism, judaism, hinduism, buddhism, etc. do not qualify as religions. They are fake-religions, pseudo-religions. The only real religion that exists and has ever existed--and ever will exist is Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion--whether it be Akan, Ewe, Yoruba, Igbo, Bakongo, Bambara, Dogon, San, Ovimbundu, etc. Real Religion and Spirituality are identical. Only fake-religion and spirituality are at odds. We should never confuse real religion with fake-religion.]
For those who are familiar with the Ewe tradition, Mawu and Lisa are the Great Mother and Great Father (Goddess and God). Yet, Da (the serpent with the tail in it's mouth) and His Wife Houelousou Da (wife of Da) are the Creator and Creatress. They serve Mawu and Lisa. Da and Ra (the serpent with it's tail in it's mouth in Kamit) are One and the same Entity. Rait is Houelousou Da. As you can see, the proper understanding about who the Supreme Being is (Amen and Amenet; Male and Female) and the subordinate relationship of the Creator and Creatress (Ra and Rait; the Great Spirit) is universal in Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion---when practiced without the influence of european foolishness.
