  • Mathew Louis Schlueter Entrepreneur, Designer and Consultant

    in Spirituality

     We are pleased to introduce you to Mathew Louis Schlueter.  Mr. Schlueter is an entrepreneur, designer and consultant. He has more than 30 years of experience in developing breakthrough applications, systems and technologies; using them to implement profitable, market-driven, enterprise level business systems.  Mr. Schlueter has been a senior consultant and system efficiency and effectiveness expert to Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Pentagon, Small Business Administration, Architect of the U.S. Capital, Northwest Airlines, America West Airlines, United Airlines, California Department of Water, New York Child Support, Nike and 20 other Fortune 300 domestic and international corporations. working directly with the White Dragon Society. Mr. Schlueter received his spiritual name Mathues, on the major planetary activation (known as 11:11) of 1/11/92 at 11:11 pm, while meditating on Mt. Shasta. This was one of the many experiences that led him to discover several past-lives that deepened his self-awareness. Beginning at the age of 19, several very powerful, un-evoked Spirit inspired and guided experiences of Self-Realization formed the awareness of a Divine Consciousness, which overshadowed and braided with Mathues at the soul level. The first of many ET contact experience occurred in 1992.These encounters have lead him on to greater quests of Self-Discovery. Ultimately, resulting in activations and initiations that have produced the ability to recall and access inner knowledge and wisdom through a conscious awareness to many significant aspects of the collective oversoul. One such Self-Discovery experience happened in 1997 when Mathues returned from Egypt with the conscious awareness of an activation into the oversoul aspect of the Egyptian Vicar of Hidden  Wisdom: IMHOTEP. Much of that experience has resulted in this body of material. The final integration took place inside the Great Pyramid on 11/22/98.

    The Gettin It In Show: Whats the difference between a Blackman and a Ni**a

    in Radio

    Contrary to what many may think, there is a difference
    between Black people and niggas. Define the Black Man? Define a Nigga? Was one once the other if so how and why? Please review the list below I gathered from a website called Assata Shakur Forums. What are your thoughts? Does it appear to be true? Why are we battling with ourselves as a people? As awakened individuals should we turn our backs on our bruthas and sistas that claim to be niggas?

    Black people spend thousands of dollars on higher education and see the value of owning real estate.
    Niggas spend thousands of dollars on ''getting high" and are concerned only with keeping' it real.

    When Black people have children, they try to get better paying jobs to make
    sure they can support their child... 
    When niggas have children; they change jobs to avoid paying child support.


    When Black people have children, they invest in college plans, piano lessons and braces...
    When niggas have children they invest in designer clothes, platinum jewelry and mini-Air Jordans

    Black people watch out for their neighbors and understand the importance of strong neighborhoods...
    Niggas watch their neighbors, and look for an opportunity to take advantage of their weaknesses.

    Black people appreciate the sacrifices made for them by, their families to help them get ahead in life...
    Niggas will sacrifice their Families and steal from them in order to get their next high. 

    Black people appreciate expensive jewelry designer clothes and nice cars but realize that they don't make the person.... 
    Niggas define themselves by their designer clothes platinum jewelry and nice cars.
