Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Seti I
Secret of Anubis - Ancient Astronomy
This Blog "Secrets of Ancient Egypt" was started 19. September 2008 under the name "Mysteries of Ancient Egypt"

Behold, the Secrets of Ancient Egypt, the land that the universe created when the cosmos made the Nile. As the Queen of the constellations raised herself above the two horizons and declared her name as Sirius, so did the jubilation of life occur, meanwhile her husband the Egyptian constellation of Orion stands guard by her.

The articles that you find here, investigates all the mysteries that lies hidden in the ancient desert sand, specifically their spiritual nature which began among the stars.

While I worked in Egypt I quickly saw something more than the guides would talk about.
Like I would say to my guests before entering a temple, "I can give you the regular guide story, which last 40 min, and then you can walk around by yourself? Or..."

"I can give you everything I've got, meaning I will tell you the details, and anything you point to, I will explain. I will use up all of your time, and still have a lot to say. the choice is yours".
- Guess which one they picked, always :)

You could say that this blog is based on that concept, of giving you everything I've got, on what ever topic from this ancient land.

Mysterious objects, that either moves or sings, are studied in more detail. I can guarantee you a journey which you haven't seen before, from below the ground to up among the stars.

The Pyramid builders that left empty sarcophagus and a knowledge which no one have been able to imitate since...
A peculiar and mysterious thing, is also the fact that what we have from the Pyramid Builders are in stone not papyrus manuscripts. Their spiritual belief was written into the stones.

The mysteries of Edgar Cayce are also looked into, as well as the case of the Emerald tablets.

Furthermore you have a unique opportunity to read more about individual stars and constellations of ancient Egypt, known under the name of the Decans.

This blog goes extensively into different subjects from this holy land, and takes you on a real as well as truthful journey into the magical land of the great ancient Egyptians.

The Emerald tablets articles can be found under the label Hermes Trismegitus, there are more than one article about each subject, and it is for that reason that they are arranged into label categories.

Seti I Heb Sed Festival

This is an article post about the great pharaoh Seti I and his Heb Sed Festival, this article is connected to 
The articles above, deal with those pharaohs Heb Sed festivals, and gives you the basic details so fare known behind this peculiar festival. 
This article on the other hand, investigates some interesting points to the image used for the festival themselves. 

- Analyzing Festival Scenes

- The Astronomical Connections

Again,... Interestingly I think Sety I temple at Abydos offers more clarification upon the mysterious festival, so I will use the pictures that I took at the temple.

I am of the belief that it is NOT a 30 year festival as the scholars have settled upon, but I actually believe that this ritual festival has more to do with some Astronomical Relationship between Earths Seasons.

Now, I am well aware of, how this must sound to the scholar mind, so please do bear with me, as I venture into yet another unexplored path among the old...

I do not say that I am right, but I will prove my point with more than my own words or theories, I will use what is known, and draw attention to the smaller details that people so quickly move by.

Analyzing Festival Scenes

The deeper that I dig into these ritual scenes, the more you might be unfamiliar with them, but the scholar would know what I am talking about. Again you must remember everything is not known yet, fare from it...

So here we see the great Seti I in a running motion, he has a staff like thing in his hand and a wipe in his other hand. 

It is accepted among scholars that this scene is called the Hed-Sed festival, and most believe it to be an event that took place every 30 years of a pharaohs life. 

Yet there are so much evidence that points in another direction, too many pharaohs have more than one of these scenes on their temple walls, yet they hardly ruled for 60 years (30 years X 2)...

So the question would logical be (if one wanted to explore the thought even more), could it be something different that what we perceive the Heb-Sed festival to be?

- I do suspect that the answer to this, is Yes :)

As I mentioned in the other posts which are referenced to at the beginning of this post, I was thought by an scholar Egyptologist in what the Heb-Sed festival was thought to be about, yet their perception seemed very off to me..

Again I will not go into describing the celebration of the festival in this post, because I have already done so before.

Here I will show you how my mind works, and what I see, which does not follow the scholar books.

The first thing that I noticed, where both the differences in the scenes of one pharaoh (it could be either Ramesses II or Seti I, like other ritualistic images they follow a standard.. And unknown standard, yet you still see some common denominators among the scenes).

Another thing worth pointing out, is that the ancient Egyptians were masters of not only numerology, but also the dual images. 

By this I mean, there is this duality which goes harmonies through everything that they did, I talk more about this in my book "The Secret of Anubis, The Winter Triangle".

They did Nothing unintentionally !

The first thing that I notice with the festival scene, was the scorpion Goddess. You might think that I am referring to the smaller lady figure with her arms stretched out, but I am not talking about her, thou I think she too, is very important.

No, I am talking about one specific figure on the other side of the pharaoh, I have drawn it with white inside the red box-thing. That symbol is normally used for the Scorpion Goddess, who is also portrayed in their astronomical charts, which are found at either their tombs or their Death Temples.

The Scorpion goddess is the constellation of the Scorpion, this is clearly proved in many ancient tombs. 

Beneath the Scorpion goddess you have the symbol of "Horizon" ?.. Interesting considering...

It is also very clear that, as the scholars also say, that it is a ritual about the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt, under one pharaoh (king). This is illustrated through different symbols, such as the Pharaohs crowns on each scene, and the ladies that stands in front of the pharaoh.

The ladies that have their hands stretched out, is on one of the scenes a representation of the goddess of Upper Egypt, and in the other scene, she represents the goddess of Lower Egypt.

It is also interesting, to notice the different objects that the king is holding in each scene.

The Astronomical Connections

First off I would say, everything in ancient Egypt had deeper connections and always ends back at their most ancient Gods and goddess, namely the stars and constellations.

Placing the Scorpion goddess in the image, clearly indicates a connection to the holder of the symbol, and what she in depth stands for. Then we see a symbol of the word "horizon" beneath the Scorpion goddess symbol...

Another interesting observation about the ancient Egyptian, The Birthday of Osiris was called Heb-Tep... 

Osiris is in some context seen as a Moon god, but this is interesting because of what Osiris birthday actually meant back then. 

Osiris Birthday was one of the Epagomenal days, the first of them to be very exact. The birthdays of five certain gods and goddess were used to make up the calendar year, where we today use the 'leap-year' classification, because of difference in calendar ideas.

In ancient Egypt time and calendars belonged to the gods and goddess.

Again there might be some deeper connection to these scenes, than first presumed. Rather coincidental that Osiris birthday was known as Heb-Teb, and here we have a ritual called Heb-Sed? 

Could this peculiar running ritual have something to do with the Epagomenal days?

Sadly I was not looking for how many scenes there were in the temple at Abydos, Because in retrospect it would have been interesting to see if there were five scenes? I took pictures of four scenes.

The Helicopter Hieroglyphic symbol

Ahhh... It's a bird.... AHHHH... It's a plane... AHHHHHH it's an Alian !!!

The Helicopter Hieroglyphic symbols

Behold Abydos Temple, Where Osiris Dweels.

You have probably seen these very fascinating hieroglyphics on the internet, many people have added a theory about alien encounters in ancient day. 

On my birthday this year, I choose to go to the ancient Temple known as Abydos Temple

As I was walking around, one old Egyptian man came over to me and pointed the hieroglyphic out, I quickly hit the 'shoot' button on my camera.

This is a short post about what I saw. 
Is there really proof of alien encounters in ancient days?

"Behold the Temple of a million years, where Death dwells"

Wishing Cup from Tutankhamen's tomb


The Wishing Cup from Ancient Egypt

Have you ever heard of the wishing cup that was found in Tutankhamen's tomb? 

The cup is really a perfect representation of what the object stands for, and it might prove to come from another place...
The Wishing cup from Tutankhamens tomb.

          • The Chalices description.          

          • Translation of the ancient text upon the cup.        
          • Did the wishing cup belong to Tutankhamen?

These are the 3 questions that this short article post will analyze.

The Cup's Description,

The artistic hands that formed this chalice  was truly a great artist of their time (?).
Carter chose to call it the Wishing cup, because the chalice bears the inscription of a wish or a prayer.

The Wishing cup can be found in the Cairo museum in room 20, which is the room where you find the things found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. It is carved alabaster and has a height of 18.3 CM. It is beautifully carved with hieroglyphs that are painted with blue color.

Translation of the ancient text on the chalice.

I find the translation very interesting, and it makes me more sure, that there is probably more to this relic and where it might come from...

Translation of the Rim:

"Live, thy Ka, and mayst thou spend millions of years, thou lover or Thebes, sitting with thy face to the north wind, and thy eyes beholding felicity."
Translation by carter          
The person that found the Tomb of Tutankhamen          

"May your Ka live for ever, may you, who love Thebes, spend millions of years with your face to the north wind, and may your eyes see joy."
Translation found in          
The illustrated guide to the Egyptian museum in Cairo.          

Translation of the front part of the Wishing cup

What I found here seems more complex than I can explain in a blog post, but I will give you some hints. First off as I have said before, all hieroglyphic can be translated much further than what is normally done or shared.

One version
"Amun-Ra, Lord of the world, Lord of the thrones of the two lands, the two horizons of east and west, Lord of heaven beloved king of upper and lower 
Egypt Nedukheper-Ra, give life, to the son of Ra Amun-tut-ankh, everlasting"

Translation by me.          

Interpretation of the Wishing cup

Every aspect of this chalice is filled with a sense of timelessness. From the chalices elegant Lotus shape to the cups handles themselves, it is a true masterpiece.

The handles are made up by different numeral symbols as well as centering on a timeless mythology from ancient Egypt.

The sitting man is central, and his name is Heh and he stands for 1,000,000. Not only should he be seen as a number, but he is also essential to the cosmos mythology, being one of the eight pillars that hold up the heaven. You should not see this as a person, or a personification of such, because it is more like an idea/ a concept which belongs to the concepts of time, which is not a factual calculation which we tend to judge it today.

You are right, this is pretty complex and cannot be fully explained in a blog or on a website, but I can allude to it ;)

Did the wishing cup belong to Tutankhamen?

It is well known that a lot of the things that were found in Tutankhamen's tomb, did not belong to him. It is also widely known that the tomb was robbed in ancient times.

With this is mind, we find some very unusually and beautifully made alabaster things, which have always made me wonder.. When I first heard that, way back, my first thought was: If the tomb had been robbed, then why is there still a lot of gold which could easily have been carried out.
The answer to this is pretty simple, they filled up the tomb with other peoples belongings. This also explains another question which bugged me back in the days.

Seti I one of the greatest kings (pharaohs) of his time, and after. His body is on display in the Cairo museum, and his alabaster sarcophagi (coffin) is found in England (I really have a dilemma with the fact that an eternal resting place have been messed up so much), the question that I have always asked; where is Seti I belongings. I suspect much of his belongings were made in alabaster if possible, because of his sarcophagi (coffin).

Tutankhamen seems to have followed his father and stepmothers use of material, which was mostly gold, the direct connection to Atum and the Sun.

I have the personal opinion that this beautiful relic the wishing cup, most probably belonged to the Pharaoh (king) Seti I.

And I see it as a ceremonial chalice that was used in the temple of Abydos. In my mind the cup looks almost perfectly made for the Blue Lotus drink, those colors would have bounced off each other.
