Knowledge Of Self – Ultimate Guide

In this blog post, we are going to discuss how to practically gain a Knowledge of Self and How to get in closer touch with your First Self or Higher Self.

The universe loves gratitude, goodness, growth, and increase. We as a mini-universe must understand that we become our thoughts, actions, what we eat and what we drink.

We have been miseducated on the Knowledge of God and Self. Most of us have experienced enough “Tricknology” and evil to understand Satan on a basic level. But the question still remains, who are we really?

Knowledge of Self


When you obtain a Knowledge of Self you become more in tune with your divine purpose. Our increase in knowledge and character improvement brings us closer and more in tune with our first self. Unity with our first self is the ultimate goal as the first self only knows perfection.

We are at the end of a 6,000-year cycle known as the cycle of self-forgetfulness. We put our first self to sleep to allow the recessive part of us to manifest a world that is contrary to the world that we knew for 78 trillion years prior.

Black Knowledge of Self


We have now been given the true knowledge of who we are to allow our awakening. Elijah Muhammad contest, “No people strive to lose themselves among other people except the so-called American negro. This they do because they lack knowledge of self.”

Without a knowledge of self everything that you do will aid your enemy. You will simply add to the storehouse of your enemy in everything that you do.

We want to erase the greatest lies ever told. These lies are preventing us from connecting with our divine self. This higher self tries to communicate with us all the time but our miseducation prevents us from making that connection strong enough to take on our divine work in life.

The first of these lies is that we should fear God. You have heard us say it before, “I am a God fearing man”. Well, then you are scared of who you really are. This is why we often have to be put in a dream-like state in order to accept this direct communication, then we wake up an say we had some kind of epiphany. The fear of God causes us to turn our consciousness inward whenever our higher self-attempts to communicate with us.

We have been taught that “no one can see God and live.” This is the worst kind of lie as it makes you fear who you really are. God can only communicate to use when we are in a fearless and peaceful state of mind. So the lies of this world are made to directly combat this divine connection. Besides how can you fear something that you love?

God or our Higher self currently communicate to us in our sleep while we are in a dreamlike state, knowing that we will remember the parts that we need sooner or later. Our fear of this power causes us to forget our dream as soon as we wake up.

The first step in acquiring a knowledge of self is to reprogram our minds. We are not of this world but have been partaking in thoughts and practices that oppose our true nature.

Simply put we have to improve our memories and ourselves.

The greatest secret has been kept for 6,000 years and has now been revealed by the Mahdi directly to us. All black people come from oneness or God (divine unity of all black people). You are the supreme being that you seek to find elsewhere or outside of yourself. The vast majority of us have not experienced divine unity with our first or higher self so we doubt this truth.

There is no supreme being separate for you and your ancestors. The only God there is incarnated in us. God is you in your natural perfection divided into trillions of personalities.

Now really quickly for my brothers and sisters in the 5% nation and the Nation of Islam. You may be thinking, but “God came in the person of Master Fard Muhammad.”

This is true but he also came in the person of Elijah Muhammad, Minister Louis Farrakhan and you. The only difference between you and Master Fard Muhammad is that he was aware of the fact that he is God.

We look outside of self because we do not know self. Furthermore, when our divine self make him/herself known to use we often forget the experience.

Know Thyself


In summary, the supreme being is the divine unity of all black people, this is the one true God. You are a part of this divine unity equal to all other parts. When you unite with your first self you experience a state of mind where you know yourself as this one God. In this state of mind, there is no one else, you become supreme only over yourself because you have mastered yourself.

“To be rulers you have to have superior wisdom knowledge and understanding.”

Elijah Muhammad

“We need an education that eliminates division Among Us. An education that creates unity and makes us desire to be with our own.” 

Elijah Muhammad

Knowledge of Self Definition

“The accumulating of knowledge As we now call it Education. First, my people must be taught the knowledge of self. Then and only then will they be able to understand others and that which surrounds them. Anyone who does not have a knowledge of self is considered a victim of either Amnesia or unconsciousness and is not very competent. The lack of knowledge of self is a prevailing condition among many people here in America. Gaining knowledge of self makes us unite into a great Unity. Knowledge of self makes you take on the great virtue of learning.”

Elijah Muhammad

Importance of Self Knowledge


Self-knowledge helps you and others to do for self. Without knowledge of self as a basis, everything that you do will assist your enemy. By obtaining the knowledge of self a person is able to discover his or her Divine Purpose and Mission.

Black Knowledge of Self Quotes By Elijah Muhammad


Today, if one rises up in your midst and says, “we should not lick the slavemasters boots, we should lick at our own Boots,” you would say, “he should be killed! he should be killed because he is teaching us to hate.”

Elijah Muhammad

“Since our being brought here in chains to the shores of America, our brain power, labor, skills, talent and wealth have been taken, given and spent towards the building and adding to the civilization of another people. It is time for you and be the so-called Negroes to start doing for ourselves. “

Elijah Muhammad

“It is knowledge of self that the so-called negros  Lack which keeps them from enjoying freedom justice and equality. This belongs to them divinely as much as it does to other nations of the earth. It is a last will and purpose that we shall know ourselves. Therefore he came himself to teach us the knowledge of self.”

Elijah Muhammad

With knowledge of self you “could and should seek higher education without the danger of losing respect for yourself or seeking to lose their identity.”

Elijah Muhammad

“Who is going to teach you the knowledge of self? Who are you waiting for to teach you the knowledge of self? Surely not your slave master Who blinded you to that knowledge of self. The slave master will not teach you the knowledge of self, as there would  Not be a master-slave relationship any longer.”

Elijah Muhammad

How to Gain Self Knowledge


Knowledge of self starts with a desire for self-improvement. When we seek this knowledge we seek to become our greatest version. As long as you are doing this you are on the right path.

We should seek to improve our memory, thoughts, actions, and gain control over what we eat and drink.

Here are a few practical ways to this.

Numbers and Symbol Visualization

Also at the end of the Book Black Roots Science there is a very important number visualization.

When we visualize numbers we deal directly with the abstract reality of symbols. These symbols are our natural way of communicating and an entire language of symbols already exist within the mind.

These symbols communicate knowledge in a clear and concise way. The visualization of numbers will train your mind to be more receptive and ultimately see these natural symbols.

Pick a group of numbers and close your eyes and do the math in your head for 5 minutes a day.  Do one, two, or three rows a day.
