4 Powerful Ways to Develop Your African Spirituality Now

African Spirituality extends beyond religious dogmatism. In some cases, developing your spirituality may mean stepping outside of these religions and discovering your true path.

African Spirituality is one of the most mis-understood concepts in the Black Conscious community. Ask 3 people to define it and you will get three different answers.

As confusing as spirituality can be, there are 4 easy ways to develop your spirituality, with or without religion!

If you want to listen to this article instead of reading it, check out our video below.

What Is Spirituality?

Spirituality is the state of your soul, emotions, beliefs, mindset, and connection to the infinite. These factors make up your spiritual anatomy called your ‘light body’. Just like your physical body, your light body can grow stronger or weaker based on your actions.

What is the Difference Between Religion and Spirituality?

If you want to get into a debate in the Black Conscious community, bring up the difference between religion and spirituality! Religion and spirituality are indeed two different things – despite what some will tell you! Religion is a system designed for spiritual development. Some systems are better than others at achieving this goal.

Today, some religions have become so corrupted that they do nothing for spiritual development. Instead, these religious have become systems of indoctrination that create divisions between “believers” and “non-believers’.

Instead of getting caught up in the dogmas taught by Christianity, Islam, Judaism, return to your African roots.

Study the Yoruba, Kemetic, and Vodun traditions. Your new found knowledge- along with other spiritual practices like meditation and fasting – will put you on the fast track to spiritual enlightenment.

I thought fasting was going to be easy because I wasn’t at work, but nope I ended up breaking the fast and eating more than I normally do. I felt like I was starving and weak 😞.

I’m very excited about this connection. Earlier today, I was asking myself some questions, such as , what is spirituality and/or spirit? What is African spirituality? I came across your video on YouTube about African spirituality and the 5 parts of the kemetic soul that I thoroughly enjoyed and decided to check out this website. This experience is confirmation that I am on the right path. I love the fact that you share books for me to purchase and read. I will be sharing this information with my friends and family!

Looking forward to something that is authentic. No the truth of the matter im excited as well u know. Lol There is no need for me to ponder over my Christian experience. The fact of this matter this religion has left me dead and unispired for a long time. So yes elated is a understatement.

The truth may be hidden for long but at the right time, it has to be disclosed

I’ve been raised in Christianity. Studied Theology. Taught Bible study. Sent my children to Catholic school.
Visited Mosque w/my brother who practiced Islam. Have gone to many bar mitzvahs & other temple events with friends or family; it is only in the last 6 years of some truths being revealed in my life, that finding this info has enhanced & enlightened my spiritual consciousness like nothing else ever has! I am delighted and excited to embark on this new journey!

During my spiritual journey, I cleanse my body, and December 24th. 2017 I decided not to eat any meat anymore. I had no clue what the difference between vegans and vegetarians, and worst I was a junk food vegan.

I brought cookbooks and found http://www.blackvegan.com which advised me of a lot of great vegetarian meals, natural remedies, and I realized I was not alone.
