Sekhmet: The Lioness of Ancient Egypt

The past few weeks I have had emails from friends who were surprised during psychic meditations - basically, they felt an energy come through and after Googling it, discovered that what they felt was one of the deities from Ancient Egypt. I had a similar experience about a year ago. Before then my interest in ancient myths had focused on the Greek side, thanks to my first tarot deck

In my case, I felt a rush of water through my energy field during a Reiki meditation, like I was being hosed down. When I asked 'what is this?', the impressions that came to mind were 'river god-dess' and 'happy' - followed up immediately by a mental picture of a character on the TV show Scorpion whose name is Happy. I assumed it might be a river goddess of Japanese origin, because Reiki comes from Japan. As soon as I was done with the intuitive meditation I googled the terms "Asian river goddesses" and came up empty handed - no female river deities and none called Happy. I thought it must have been my imagination that got in the way.

A few days later I went back to Google, searching for "Happy" and "River God" without mentioning Japan and leaving out the feminine aspect. What came up was a lesser-known Egyptian river god known as Hapi. I was flabbergasted. He looked after the flooding of the Nile, which in turn assured enough water for crops to grow, but not so much that it would drown them out. 

But more than that, Hapi looked after a specific part of the Nile, near a town called Philae. This floored me because fifteen years ago, before I was into energy healing or psychic meditations, I actually went to Philae and immediately thought "I lived here in another life" - I didn't want to leave. Alas, I was there on a cruise and dragged myself away after 45 minutes. The archeological site was dedicated to Isis and Osiris with no mention of the river god Hapi. 

Since then I have been reading up on Ancient Egypt and discovered a sun goddess who looked after healing, plagues, medicine and destruction (the kind that removes obstacles). The warrior goddess Sekhmet is often depicted with a lion's head on a female body. Her energy is necessary now with everything that is going on in the world. I thought it would be nice if we went outside, grounded ourselves and felt a ray of light flow from the Sun to our Heart Chakras, intending for it to clear away all fear and doubt. Let that fiery sunlight radiate through your body and Aura. 

The clairvoyant meditations that I have shared in the past can be used to connect with angels and guides. We can also set the intention to connect with higher vibrational beings such as bodhisatvas and goddesses, though in my experience, they choose us and not the other way around. In either case, I hope you enjoy connecting with Hapi and Sekhmet.  

Begin by grounding yourself and shielding your meditation space, this brings about clarity. Grounding also gives us the foundations to reach for the stars, figuratively speaking. You’ll find the steps in my book Chakra Healing & Magick. 

We could all use some energy healing, and Sekhmet's connection with courage and the sun's warrior energy.
