Kalabsha Temple

Whilst staying at Aswan we took a short journey to the banks of Lake Nasser and a motor boat trip across to a small granite island that rises out of the water with Kalabsha temple at its peak. Together with other monuments it had been rescued and rebuilt to save them from the rising Nile waters created by the construction of Aswan's High Dam.

There is something unique and wonderful about this small island with its winding cobbled pathways that lead to different monuments, the sun beats down and diamonds flash across the turquoise crystal waters surrounding the island, the wind enlivens your senses, and here I found myself initially drawn to the glorious little kiosk of Kertassi that stands proudly on the edge of the rocks looking out over Lake Nasser, the kiosk basked in the warmth and brilliance of the Egyptian sun, to the glory of the Goddess Hathor whose warm smile greets you from two of the columns, and welcomes you within her Kiosk, here I experienced a wonderful feeling of love, a blessing from Hathor herself, so I rested and found myself considering the course of my life all the twists and turns and how it had taken me on this path to Egypt. As I rested I felt the warmth of Light energy infuse my body, offering me new light energy and inspiration and so I followed the path to the next monument on the island which is known as Gerf Hussein, the Egyptians knew it as Per Ptah, the "House of Ptah", it was created in the style of Abu Simbel and was originally rock cut with an inner chamber, and was created for Ramses the great by Setaw who was the viceroy of Nubia. Here on the island all that remains are statues of the outer courtyard, which I felt were the oddest looking statues I have ever seen of Ramses, they are short and dumpy and totally lacking in the usual elegant style of ancient Egyptian statues, so I continued on my way and followed the cobbled path back to the side of the main temple where I passed an interesting and unexpected collection of rocks that were created during the Neolithic period, with sketches of animals racing across the desert during a hunt. The path rose and swerved around the back of the main temple around the island until I arrived at another small monument known as Beit al-Wali, which means House of the Govenor, which was created by the viceroy for Ramses the great. I entered a small enclosed forecourt , and on the walls the small reliefs enact fighting scenes with Syrian and Libyan on the right side, Ethiopians on the left. Ramses grips the hair of his enemies whilst women plead for mercy. Entering Inside the small chamber there are two columns, behind me I saw Ramses gripping the hair of his enemy ready to smash his skull, then he calmly offers gifts to the gods. Two small niches are cut into the facing wall and have three seated statues inside them, here Anukis wears a large plumed headdress, in Egyptian mythology this goddess was the personification of the River Nile, and so we find here where the Nile starts its journey through Egypt. Her name means the Embracer, her bounty flooded the fields nourishing them and bringing new life.

Spiritual Orbs at Gebel Silsila

Well my guests had a very unusual experience to get to Gebel silsila, the driver got lost bless him and so we ended up hiring two local fishermen and their boats to row us across the river to the tombs, it was a real laugh and we all enjoyed the experience immensly. This area of the Nile is the narrowist point, and was once considerd to be the place where the soul of the nile resided.

We enjoyed a quiet meditation inside the tombs it was a very happy spiritual experience, and if you look closely you can see spiritual orbs in the room around Hans

Magie & Genezing in het Oude Egypte

Oude Egyptenaren geloofden in magie, als onderdeel van de genezing. In onze wereld van de moderne wetenschap en geneeskunde verstaan en begrijpen wij niet meer de oude kunst van de Egypte van toen. De huidige universitair geschoolden doen smalend over magie, maar in de oudheid werd magie beoefend met betrekking tot alle vragen over het leven, de dood en ziekte. Het was verweven met religie en de genezing werd beoefend door de priesters in de tempels.

Psychologie werd ook gebruikt als onderdeel van het helen met behulp van bezweringen, het plechtig reciteren van zinnen en woorden van deed een beroep op het onbewuste en hielp een zieke persoon. Dit zou de patiënt gerust stellen en werkte rustig en kalmerend op de zenuwen. Het effect van angst op de patiënt voor een onbekende macht, dat we vandaag de dag als bijgeloof zouden bestempelen, werd hierdoor verminderd.

De Egyptenaren geloofden dat ziekte en aandoeningen veroorzaakt werden door boze geesten, die in het lichaam van de mens huisden, indien de persoon niet beter werd, zocht hun familie hulp en bracht de zieke naar de tempel om te worden behandeld met een bezwering, drugs of incubatie.

De godin Isis werd beschouwd als een grote tovenares en genezeres, dit is een bezweringsformule voor haar:

O Isis, Grote Tovenares, bevrijd mij, verlos mij van alle kwaad en rode dingen, van de koorts van de God en de koorts van de Godin. van de dood en de pijn van de dood, en de pijn die over mij komt, zoals gij hebt bevrijd, en als gij uw zoon Horus hebt vrijgegeven, terwijl ik voer in het vuur en voortga in het water.

Magic & Healing in Ancient Egypt

In our modern age of hospitals and specialists to treat illness, we probably would mock some forms of ancient egyptian healing and magic.

The egyptians believed that sickness and disease were caused by evil spirits, they would take the ill person to the temple for healing where he would be treated by the priests with incantations drugs or incubation. Incantations are a form of Psychology, the solem recitation of certain sentences and words of invocation over a sick person, would reasure and calm them helping to soothe the patients nerves and worry that would probably have been caused by an unknown fear, we would accept this as superstition. Amulets were also used, when the mummy was prepared for burial all forms of amulets were woven in the bindings to offer protection.

The Goddess Isis was regarded as a great enchantress and a healer,together with the help of the God Thoth she found all the parts of her husband osiris body, after he had been killed by his jelous brother Seth, and she brought him back to life

Healing magic was a speciality of the priests who served the Goddess Sekhmet, the fearsome goddess of plague,‘the Goddess of a thousand names’, She destroys all that is no longer of value and brings healing to the world

Destructive magic was also practised. The names of foreign enemies and Egyptian traitors were inscribed on clay pots or tablets that could be broken or burnt.Wax figurines could be created,and used to bring ill health or death to a person, Ramses 111 had many people of his harem tried and then executed for using destructive magick against him, this incident is known as the harem plot, and took place in the harem quarters at Medinet Habu.

Pharoahs would have prisoners on the soles of their shoes to theoretically tread them underfoot and squash them, pschologically in the belief that this would weaken or destroy the enemy..Enemies would also be portrayed beneath the kings throne to show that he was powerful and subdued enemies that threatened Egypt.
