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.

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.

Ancient Sun and Moon The Two Eyes


Ancient Sun and Moon

One is the day boat, travelling with the Sun as it gives us the 12 hours of Light. The other one is the night boat, which holds the key of the Moon's heart, and it guides us through the time of darkness, until the ancient Sun crosses again.

The Two Eyes, the Sun and the Moon
"The Image above is an artist impression" Ancient sun and moon.

Many people have the idea that the ancient Egyptians believed in Ra as a sole god, which could not be further from the truth. Ra is one among many gods and goddess, but indeed he is the First Lord of our Earth.

The Two Eyes of (Ra) is made up by the Sun and Moon and together they are the ancient sun and moon, one sees all at day and one sees all at night. Each they had a boat sailing in the celestial waters, in the day hours and in the night hours.

The ancient Moon was called Aah or the Wadjet /(Udjat) Eye.

The Moon-god appears as a man in the archaic form of Ptah, Min, Osiris and many more. On his head is the young moon with the old one in his arms. He wears the lock a hair of youth, and a cobra above his forehead etc. The boat he sailed in was called the 'Boat of a million years'. It brought back the Udjat Eye.

Ancient Sun and Moon Myth from Ancient Egypt

One known creation theory that survives from the ancient day of Egypt is about Ra and the two eyes. This story is furthermore interesting, because it gives the idea that Ra might not be the Sun – Ra himself said this "I became from one god, three gods."

From the great dark blue water of the celestial abyss, Ra existed there before anything else. Alone he floated around the great celestial sea, before he thought about creation and willed his own physical existence. 

From his spit came the creation of Shu who became the god of air, and Tefnut, who became the goddess of mist. 

As Ra was blind in the celestial sea, he created an eye 'the power of vision/to see.' He sent this eye forth to seek his two children, who also floated in the celestial sea. 

When the eye returned, it saw that Ra had replaced it with another eye, and the (first) eye became very angry. Ra had to make peace/balance, he gave the first eye more power than the second eye. 

But now Ra had two eyes, he therefore made one eye the eye of the Sun, and the other eye the eye of the moon.
The Two Eyes - the MoonLater on in ancient Egypt, Horus and Ra became more entangled, and other myths came out of this association, such as the Eye of Horus.

All of Seth's aggression was placed upon this eye during his battle with his nephew Horus. "When the Red god (Seth), using his magical powers of deception, had captured the eye, he threw it into the darkness beyond the edge of the world. Thoth, who had been watching the fight and who was the guardian of the Moon, observed where it fell and went to fetch it. When Thoth found the eye, it was in pieces, but he located them all and put them together to form a full Moon and thereby restored the night light." This eye was called the Wadjet and ancient Egyptians could take the eye apart into its pieces.
