Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Abydos
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.

You can also use the list below, turning the pages to see illustrating images of each article.

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?

Read more about the Epagomenal days here

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 Temple of a Million Years - Abydos Temple

The title Temple of a Million Years, Where Death Dwells might sound like something with an ominous outcome. But let me assure you, that is fare from the reality of the title.

Seti I temple at Abydos is a true gateway to time itself, laid out in our reality as a building.

The Temple of a Million Years.
ISBN: 87-991527-6-2
Finally available online, Let me be the first to give you a peek into my new eBook 

The Temple of a Million Years, Where Death Dwells.

I find myself writing in a two folded way, on one hand, this can be seen as a guide book when You are actually at the temple. 

On the other hand, the book can also be read from home, bringing the temple alive right there with you, through the beautiful pictures.

In the fare South where the hot desert sand meets the Tropical climate boarder, You would never notice Seti I temple, designed to be camouflaged by the desert itself.

If You stand from afar, it hardly looks as spectacular as it really is. It looks very small, yet it is very big. I would suspect that this temple would easily have been covered in sand, at some point in our history.

See the Perfect Harmony of Numbers embedded into the construction itself. They took Numerology to a whole New Level.   
The Goddess Maat who stands firmly behind the scales, as a heart is weighed against sins and harmony within, she was the Essence of Harmony and balance itself. She was a Mother Goddess.

From her harmony the rotation of our earth was placed into a balance of night and day, water and earth, and air and fire. Her first born children embraces us each and every day in the form of nature itself.

This perfect harmony was so well practiced back then, that they actually understood how to transform it into reality. Creating a building that portrays the very essences of not only harmony but also nature itself.

The Nine Rooms Reveal the Seven Chapels, and they are all held together by the forces of Time. 

But they also went a step further, they were so attuned with this knowledge, that they were able to align it with the stars and constellations.. without computer calculations.

Not only did they align them with the stars, Abydos temple stands as a proof of a much more advanced knowledge, where they also calculated numbers into the building itself.

Besides the beautiful Temple of Seti I and beneath ground level, You find the Tomb of Osiris.

Some might say, that the kingdom of Ancient Egypt belongs to the fare forgotten past...

So here is a Secret Revealed for You, 
In ancient Egypt a Bank was referred to as the White House.... Interesting right... notice the dollar bill...

Details from Abydos Temple


Abydos Temple

As I mentioned in a previous post, last year I spent my birthday in Egypt. When we (mom and me) arrived at Abydos temple (been there many times), it was the same time, as when I was born. A more spiritual alignment :)

The very first details that attracted me, was not inside Abydos temple, but outside in the open court.

The details that Sety I had his artist create, are so beautiful that they always make me speechless.

 From a long distance I could see that there were more details than normally, so I just headed straight for them...
Abydos Temple
Pictures from Abydos taken by me.

Off course these relief's make me sad, because they portray a mixture of military and political scenes.

1 Picture.

Yes.. Your eyes are not deceiving you. The enemies hands are presented to the king (Pharaoh). I personally think they would cut the hands of the fallen (dead) enemies.

It would be illogical for them to cut living enemies hands off, merely because it would be worth more to have them as a work force, that's how people of power, think, at least back then...

Today we just call it political as well as defending ones own country outside ones country, a national security threat, and what not - same propaganda.

2 Picture.

Was something that I haven't seen before, to this level of details. Right beside relief/picture number 1, I saw the next scene. I was quickly drawn to the details of the horse carriage wheel.

It looks like a head is attached to the wheel, no it is not a real head, it is decoration for the horse carriage. Most likely carved of wood, they have the same conquering scenery portrayed on their thrones foot stools.

Below this text you can see a close up of the center of the wheel, which surprisingly showed more details.
Details from the Horse carriage wheel outside Abydos Temple.
The front part of the temple, especially the outside always portray war and political scenes. 

If you look at Luxor temple, the front art is the political scene, whereas in Edfu temple you also find these scenes in the first court, like here in Abydos. 

Edfu temple functioned much like a court room for the people in ancient Egypt.

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?

History of Anubis

He is thought to be a STAR
(or at least one of his character-like beings is)
Some believed Anubis 
meant, TIME.

The famously known Jackal headed god Anubis, is also known under other names (but they might not be representing the same concept or idea as Anubis). The history of Anubis date further back in time than Osiris, and he is most often seen with Thoth the god of Wisdom and writing.  

I took this picture at Abydos

Other Jackal Gods were
  • Input
  • Wepwawet (or Ap-uat)
  • from The Secret of Anubis

The history of Anubis is rather complex and very old, so old that even the ancient Egyptian saw him as being ancient from their time.

He might be hard to comprehend in our world today, because he is a mixture of light and darkness at the same time. He could to some extent be seen as the Angle of Death in Christianity.

What precisely Anubis means, has been lost to our historical records, because of its ancient background. 

He was the son of many different gods and goddess. As time would change, so would the people’s views about who was connected to who.

His connection to Osiris and how fare back he goes can be seen in the ‘judgment scene’ from the book of the dead. 

Anubis might even have more power than Osiris in this scene, in that Anubis/Duamutef is able to be active and is the ‘weigher’ of hearts, whereas Osiris is always seen in a mummified state – immovable.
judgment scene

Some of Anubis titles were:

"Foremost of the Westerners"
"The lord of the scared land"
"He who is upon his scared mountain"
“Ruler of the bows”
“He who is in the place of embalming”
“Foremost of the divine booth”.

Another picture that I took at Abydos.

The Greeks and Roman also choose to portray Anubis.

Anubis, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Input is said to be the female counterpart of Anubis – (She had her own cult in one of the Upper Egyptian nome’s).

Wepwawet (or Ap-uat) 

(An unusual name if you ask me -Reminds me of the Native American names back in their old days).
Probably the oldest known Jackal god in ancient Egypt. His name Wapwawet means “Opener of the ways”. (To me this character reminds me a lot of Tuamutef/Duamutef).

What do you know about The 

The Secret of Anubis

Duamutef or Tuamutef 
Is one of the heavenly sons of Horus, the heavenly sons of Horus are four together, and with their tree hidden brothers, they make up the Seven divine beings. They are said to live among the stars, as guardians of Osiris.

I have my own personal fascination with this creature, and my own personal journey, I adore him especially in the form of 

Tuamutef/Duamutef. My book ‘Secret of Anubis, the winter triangle’ is actually about this beautiful animal. 

He is a separate character from Anubis, and very vital to the Egyptian beliefs system. 

He was a guide for the soul.

In the start of the book you will get a quick introduction to Anubis, and some of his story from ancient Egypt. 

As you read on you will take another step into a parallel world of the ancient Greeks, and reveal a very visible connection between the character of Anubis and to that of the constellation of Canis Major, where Sirius is located. 

Sirius was the queen of the decan’s, and with her the new year would begin. If Canis Major is Anubis the good of the passing, then it would be most fitting that his nose would be that of Sirius – as they did not believe in death (that would have been Hell for them) they would be given life again.

It’s a book about the Seven divine beings, which stands behind the Constellation of the Great bear, as they guard the path for Osiris.
