Glory To The Holy – Cairo, Egypt

72A3429A-5725-4883-B8F9-45B35F98EEB0Ladies and Gentlemen,

This is the very moment you all have been waiting for – it is the time to enchant your View and Vision of the World again with my initiatic journeys, as I am about to step into the Truth and bring into Light the breathtaking Legacy of the Pharaohs.
Nothing amazes me more than the remarkable treasures they have achieved immortality and the permanence in modern history for, and I am more than grateful I had the precious opportunity and absolute privilege to have touched down this Sacred Land during this lifetime.
Let’s get straight to the point – I have never seen something as fascinating as King Tutankhamun’s Treasure in my Life and I do consider myself rather pretentious in regards to my appreciation for Opulence and Abundance, of course.
My mum had to call me three times to take me away from the private chamber which held the majestic masterpieces pertaining to my favorite Pharaoh, artifacts of such a flawless precision that I was blown off my feet by the fact this fine jewelry was created 1325 years BC.
I wish modern jewelers could have the means, the dedication and ability to achieve such impressive works of Art as I have not yet seen even one accurate replica of the gold amulets found in King Tut’s tomb to satisfy my attention to detail.
Another moment marked in my personal history took place prior to the entrance into the Sacred chamber of King Tut – young girls asked to take pictures of me (it’s becoming a flattering habit in Arabic countries) and right after my short visit I almost had a shooting in the Museum with scholars, which was very touching, as if this crucial milestone of visiting Egypt wasn’t enough to brighten up my Life!

For your kind information, the marvelous trip to Cairo took a full day of traveling to reach and deserved every second of me waking up obnoxiously early.
The first stop was the One and Only Egyptian Antiquities Museum, which houses the largest collection of Ancient Egyptian artifacts in the world!
The Museum owes its existence to the Egyptian Antiquities Service, established by the Egyptian government in 1835 to limit the looting of priceless artifacts from the country. It opened in 1858 with a collection assembled by Auguste Mariette, the French archaeologist retained by Ismail Pasha, the ruler of Egypt at that time. Originally it was held in the annex of Ismail’s palace in Giza, and moved to its present location on the East bank of the Nile in 1900.
The Museum collections exceed 120,000 objects ranging from the pre-historic era through to the Greco-Roman period. Some of the most important exhibits are taken from the Royal tombs of Tuthmosis III, Tuthmosis IV, Amenhotep III, Horemheb and the tomb of Yuya and Tuya. Also, over 1,700 artifacts from the tomb of my beloved Tutankhamun are on display. Each and altogether, these priceless items placed in context with each other make a visit to the Egyptian Museum a truly unique experience, as I am about to prove.

The civilization which we call Ancient Egypt has started 5000 years ago with the reign of the Pharaohs and it had lasted some 3000 years, longer than any other civilization in world history. At its peak it was remarkable for its cultural, religious and economic achievements. Historians traditionally subdivide this era into a dozen or so periods covering 30 ruling dynasties, beginning around 3000 BC and ending with the Roman invasion in the first century AD. The first people came to Egypt from central Africa some time between 100,000 and 50,000 BC.
Archaeological finds suggest that Egypt’s original hunter-gatherers learned to grow grain beside the Nile by 10,000 BC. It was the prosperous agricultural economy that the country’s later greatness was to depend. Around 5000 BC, two broadly similar civilizations develop – one in the south of the country (Upper Egypt) and one in the north (Lower Egypt). Little is known about the history of these early kingdoms, though several rulers are known by name, among them Crocodile, Scorpion I, Scorpion II, Iryhor and Ka. The eventual merging of these two kingdoms, which shared a common language and system of writing, was to result in the first true nation and the beginning of what is generally considered ancient Egyptian civilization. The first ruler (or Pharaoh) of United Egypt is popularly identified as King Menes, although historically King Narmer may have a better claim to this honor.

Predynastic Era

Let’s take a look at the Narmer Palette, which is highly protected in a glass box at the ground level of the Egyptian Museum. I had the chance to mirror myself in it and I am glad I have such a precious memory of this artifact which represents a powerful symbol of Unification and Victory in Ancient Egypt history, and is probably “the first historical document in the world“, according to Egyptologist Bob Brier, and has survived 5 millennia in almost perfect condition, being discovered in the Main Deposit in the Temple of Horus at Nekhen.
You probably remember Horus the God from my previous work dedicated to Luxor and his quintessential symbolical importance to my Spiritual being.
The Palette commemorates the victories of King Narmer, who came from the south of Egypt to invade the Delta in about 3000 BC. It represents the most important evidence that the first political unification in the history of mankind occurred in Egypt. It was found by the British archeologist J.E. Quibell during the excavation season of 1897/98. The decorations feature two dead enemies, symbolizing conquered towns, which are represented underneath Narmer’s feet. The name of Narmer is shown in a serekh between two bovine heads. Narmer strikes down a foe, scene which many Egyptologists have been tempted to interpret as the conquest of Lower Egypt by Narmer. Narmer inspects a heap of be-headed corpses, likely to represent slain enemies after the battle. The taming of wild animals has often been viewed as a metaphor for the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt. A bull, symbolizing the king, destroys the walls of a city or fortress.

Old Kingdom

This statue of Khafre was carved out of diorite stone in the 4th Dynasty of the Old Kingdom. The statue was found in the Khafre’s Valley Temple at Giza, next to the Sphinx. It is one of the most fascinating pieces held by the Egyptian Museum of Cairo.
The Great Pharaoh Khafre is seated on his throne wearing the Royal meme-headdress, a short kilt and false beard. On each side of the throne is carved the sematawy motif, a symbol of unification of Upper and Lower Egypt.
As you walk around this statue you should look out for Horus the falcon wrapped around the head of the King. Imagine how the artist or artists who created this exquisite carving conceived of Horus taking the king up to the sky in the afterlife.
This is an unparalleled window into the ancient Egyptian world of 4,500 years ago.

Of the many notable statuary discovered in Egypt, the two companion statutes of Rahotep and Nofret (4th Dinasty) may be the most remarkable.
Rahotep might have been a son of King Senefru, which would have made him a brother of King Khufu. He held the titles of High Priest of Ra at Heliopolis, General of the Army and Chief of Constructions. He is seen wearing a short kilt, short hair, a fine mustache and a heart shaped amulet around his neck.
Rahotep’s wife, Nofret, is described as “the one acquainted to the king.” She is seen wearing a shoulder-length wig, decorated with a flower diadem and a broad collar. Her natural hair can be seen under the wig. We can recognize the distinction in the skin coloring of the two statues: reddish brown for the man and cream wash for the woman. This color difference between husbands and wives is called ‘canonical’ by Egyptologists because it show repeatedly in wall decorations and other statuary throughout Egypt. No one knows the reason. (By using the word ‘canonical’ scholars give dignity to something they do not understand.) A theory of explains the possibility of reddish color being attributed to men due to the field labors under the hot sun.
The colors of the statues are so well preserved that the faces have very realistic expressions. The most outstanding feature of the statues is that they both retain their lifelike inlaid eyes of crystal which stunned the Egyptian workmen who first opened the tomb and saw them staring out. In the torch light of the dark tomb they looked alive the workmen fled in terror.
What a majestic work of Art, I would say!

Both Egyptian men and women thought that their personal appearance was very important and as well as choosing fine clothing, they wore lots of make-up, which they made from finely ground minerals. Rich men and women drew a distinctive heavy black line round their eyes, using an eye paint known as kohl, which was made from a lead ore called galena. They might also have worn green eyeshadow which was made from a copper ore called malachite. The women also applied rosy lipstick as well as cheek blusher which was made from iron oxide, painted their fingernails and kept a store of cosmetic creams, cosmetic holders, make-up applicators and powders, many examples of which have since been found in tombs. Mirrors and combs were commonly used by Egyptians to perfect the appearance.
The black line that Egyptians painted round their eyes helped to reduce the glare of the Sun and also contained a mild disinfectant which was useful in protecting the eyes from diseases spread by flies.

The Egyptians understood the value of Education, and they organized schools at their temples for the training of the male children of the wealthy families and high officials. Girls of wealthy families were taught at home, while children of poorer parents, who tended to follow the trade of their fathers, received no formal Education, and most people could not read or write.
Children admitted to the temple schools were strictly disciplined by the priests, who trained them as scribes (writers) from around the age of nine. At the end of their schooling, pupils would be able to undertake responsible jobs, such as making records of the size of the yearly harvest and calculating the amount of tax to be paid to the Pharaoh. They might also be given important posts within government departments, or responsibility in legal or military matters.
Scribes occupied positions of respect that could rise to senior posts in the royal court, including that of a vizier. They collected taxes, settled legal disputes, designed building and recruited men for the army. Perhaps the most famous of all scribes to emerge from Egyptian Education system was the vizier Imhotep. Such was his reputation for Wisdom and administrative skill that after his death he came to be considered a God. Although the majority of the scribes were male, the ancient Egyptians also had a word meaning ‘female scribe’, so some women were presumably allowed to do such work as well.
The statue is an idealized rendition of a loyal scribe and public official. In a squatted position, the scribe sits with his back upright and his eyes fixed forward. It is a representation in keeping with the positive attitudes and General respect held towards scribes throughout Khufu’s reign. Though asymmetrical, the anonymous scribe’s face denotes confidence and determination. His windswept wig-locks leave the expressions of his round face in plain view.

New Kingdom

Now comes the proper time to enchant you with the most fabulous treasure I have ever seen, that of The Boy King, my favorite Pharaoh of all times and most charming figure I hold a high respect and a devoted love for. I might not be able to explain why I am so fascinated by Tutankhamun but I don’t have to – what can be mentioned is the artistic value of his mortuary mask and the infinite unworldly beauty he was depicted with and surrounded by, in the same astonishing style as his Father Akhenaten (in spite of numerous attempts to erase him from history).

835E01C5-76B9-407D-A178-60BF7221F8FD

Akhenaten tried to shift his culture from Egypt’s traditional polytheistic religion in favor of the worship centered on the Atenism, direction which is sometimes described as monolatristic, henotheistic, or even quasi-monotheistic.
This was a breakthrough in the Bronze Age and the highlight of all ages, to my (religious) opinion. An early inscription likens the Aten to the Sun as compared to stars, and later official language avoids calling the Aten a god, giving the solar deity a status above mere gods. It must be said that the personality of Akhenaten and the significance and extent of his action and his idea have been judged in various ways. At the end of the 19th century, the great English Egyptologist, Sir Flinders Petrie, the first to understand Akhenaten ’s historical importance, described him both as the first monotheist and the first individual in history and wrote “a man who was indisputably a genius and who managed to crush the thousand-year-old shell of habits, superstitions and conventions of society and courageously resisted the power of the clergy and other dignitaries“.
Not only did Akhenaten introduce this monotheistic approach on religion, but he completely revolutionized Art – the Amarna period is famous for the figurative representation innovations which profoundly shook and shocked the mentalities of the traditionalist and conservative society. All that was static, fixed for eternity, was now in motion. Vertical axes became diagonals, resulting in the stretched heads and crowns.

The king (and, indeed, other individuals of the royal family) was shown with a stretched-out skull, a long thin neck, a thrown-back head, big lips, with wide, feminine hips which sometimes give him an androgynous appearance.
He was almost always wearing the “blue crown (khepresh) or the nemes, and the latter adopted a rounded form which reminded of the solar disc.
This innovation in the decoration clearly appeared to be a deliberate royal wish, as certain sculptors, like Bak expressly said that they received their teaching from the king himself. In having himself shown in an ambiguous form, both masculine and feminine, or even an asexual form, the king had at least two aims.
Firstly, he showed himself as the fusion of the father and mother of the country, like the primordial human being, the asexual emanation of the god Aten, for whom he was the sole representative on earth.

On the other hand, in harmonising his iconography with that of Queen Nefertiti, he erased more and more the differences that could exist between them.
Akhenaten went to great lengths to display her as an equal – in several reliefs she is shown wearing the crown of a pharaoh or smiting her enemies in battle.
What is clear, however, from stele and inscriptions which survived the later purge of their reign, is that the royal couple was deeply devoted to each other and constantly together or with their daughters.
It is known that Atenism did not attribute divinity only to Aten – it is believed that the king and queen were priests – the Egyptian people were to worship their King Akhenaten, and only Akhenaten and Nefertiti could worship Aten directly.
Contrary to popular beliefs, Nefertiti was not the real mother of Tutankhamun, and little is known of her since the death of Akhenaten. Moreover, later Pharaohs accused Akhenaten of heresy and erased him from history, and it was not until the nineteenth century that archeologists finally restored his reputation. He is now considered to be among the most remarkable of all the Pharaohs.

La tombe de TOUTANKHAMON

Tutankhamun is perhaps the most famous of all Pharaohs, though in reality his reign was not specifically noteworthy – they say. At the age of nine, he succeeded the short-lived Smenkhkare as the twelfth Pharaoh of Dynasty XVIII, initially as Tutankhaten (meaning ‘Living Image of Aten’) but changing his name to Tutankhamun (meaning ‘Living Image of Amun’) as a gesture of his rejection of the cult of Aten which had made the reign of his predecessor Akhenaten controversial. The priests of Amun had their privileges restored, worship of the old Gods was once more permitted, and the capital of Egypt was returned to Thebes. Due to Tutankhamun’s youth, the affairs of state were probably handled chiefly by his vizier Ay.

Once forgotten, King Tut now remains one of Egypt’s grandest icons. Despite of generating huge amounts of attention since the discovery of his tomb, Tutankhamun continues to puzzle the world’s leading experts. So many stories surround this Pharaoh that at times it can be daunting. He is thought to have died around the age of 19, having a weakened immunity system, which combined with a broken leg, had failed him. The young Pharaoh’s modern fame owes everything to the discovery of his tomb, remarkably intact, in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. This stunning discovery inspired worldwide interest in the civilization of ancient Egypt and over the years millions of people have seen the priceless artifacts with which the Boy Pharaoh was buried. King Tut’s Treasure is protected by an officer in a private chamber of the Museum, which does not allow photos being taken, nor too many people entering it. Oh, how I wish to be permitted to take pictures of or with that majestic legacy! What delightful examples of high artistic and technical achievements I have seen. What a beauty King Tutankhamun had been! I do hope you are well aware of his enlightened Gold Mask, made in his resemblance, because I was not able to take any picture of it – it was elegantly reigning as centerpiece of the Treasure Room and its elegance had moved me so deeply that time stopped for a little while. God Gracious!!!

Let’s take a look now at the artifacts I was able to take pictures of outside Tutankhamun’s Private Collection chamber and slide gracefully through ancient history once more. The fabulous throne of Tutankhamun is made of wood, covered with gold and silver, and ornamented with semiprecious stones and colored glass. The scene on the back panel shows the Queen anointing the King. The Sun’s rays, terminating in hands, radiate towards the Royal couple. The King wears a composite crown and a broad collar and the Queen wears a diadem. The bodies and wigs of both of them are inlaid with exquisite colored glass and their linen robes are silver. Two lion heads project from the front of the throne while the arms take the form of winged serpents wearing the double crown that guards the names of the King. It is a brilliant work of Art so detailed and refined that it must be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see such a beautiful thing.

Anubis shrine is one of King Tut’s most recognizable treasures, and held an important role in guarding the Pharaoh into the afterlife. It also protected the King’s tomb from robbers. It was stationed at the entrance to the treasury, which is explained by the importance of Anubis in Egyptian belief about the afterlife. Kindly be reminded of the surprising resemblance between Anubis and my pinscher dogs. I am now fully aware of how deep my preferences go.

These golden sandals were created specifically for the afterlife and were put on King Tut’s feet when he died. The sandals are decorated with an engraved pattern that looks like woven reeds. The Museum also displays a pair of leather sandals which depict four human figures on the soles, thought to represent the neighboring Asian and African territories that were traditional enemies of Egypt. The essential idea of the sandals is that the king would trample his enemies as he walked. The men are depicted as prisoners, lying with their arms bound behind their back. Brilliant – that sounds like a thing I would personally do – one more reason to love King Tutankhamun!!!

There is also a special chamber to be visited separately dedicated to the Royal Mummies Collection, which requires an extra ticket and no photos to be taken. I strongly insist you should visit Egypt to realize everything you’ve seen in movies is real, but my attention now will focus on the mummification process and the funerary rites rather than anything else, a process which I find to be extremely interesting, especially since it had unlocked the immortality status for the Pharaohs whose mummies were found all the way to modern history.
The ancient Egyptians believed that the dead would needs their physical bodies to House their spirits in the afterlife, and that every care should therefore be taken in order to preserve their corpses. The earliest Egyptians wrapped their dead in matting and buried them in the hot sands of the desert, which absorbed water from the remains of the body and prevented further decay. When rich people started burying their dead in stone-lined tombs, however, they found that the bodies rotted in damp conditions. To solve this matter, they set about finding out how to dry bodies out completely so that they would be perfectly preserved, a process known as mummification.
The preparation of bodies for burial was undertaken by priests and skilled embalmers, supposedly overseen by Anubis, the jackal-headed god of mummification, who was represented by a priest wearing an Anubis mask. Mummification was a lengthy and expensive process, and only Pharaohs and the rich could afford to have their mummified remains placed in fine stone tombs and Pyramids. Those who could not afford it hoped that when they died they would be allowed into the sun god Ra’s golden “boat of millions”, which would carry their spirit (or Ba) to the underworld.
Certain sacred animals were sometimes mummified. Archaeologists have found carefully mummified cats, dogs, crocodiles and monkeys, among other creatures.
When a person died, the embalmers had to begin work very quickly, as bodies decayed rapidly in Egypt’s hot climate. The first step in the embalming process was to wash the body in natron, which was a salty solution with antiseptic properties. Next, the embalmers removed the internal organs and placed the liver, the intestines, the stomach and the lungs separately in four special containers (known as canonic jars). The brain – which the Egyptians thought had no function – was pulled out through the dead person’s nose with hooks. The heart, however, was left in place, in order that it could be weighted by Anubis in the afterlife.
I personally find it rather amusing they did not think the brain had a function and quite delightful the only organ which mattered the most was the heart. People would nowadays live quite differently if they shared this perspective on life. I find this dimension valid and applicable in modern spirituality, left aside the biological functions the brain and the heart have. Moreover, the Intuition or the divine compass of the evolved human being encompasses a degree of intelligence whose sophistication and vastness surpass those of the brain, to my opinion. Fascinating how Egyptians knew this fact millenniums prior to the recent Spiritual understanding of today’s life and our preoccupation for enlightenment. It is completely unreasonable how humans have lost touch of their Heart which leads the path to perfection (in God’s likeness and resemblance) and the afterlife, but I do appreciate the recent shift to and focus on the matters of the heart.

“Heart intuition or intelligence brings the freedom and power to accomplish what the mind, even with all the disciplines or affirmations in the world, cannot do if it’s out of sync with the heart.”
– The HeartMath Solution, 1999, Childre and Martin

The ancient Egyptians developed detailed funeral rituals that had to be correctly observed if a person’s spirit was to complete the journey to the afterlife. The rites took place 70 Days after death (allowing time for the preparation of the mummy) and were attended by grieving relatives and, in the case of wealthy families, groups of hired mourners. Priests sprinkled sacred liquids, chanted incantations and burned incense. The careful observation of funeral rites was thought to be essential for a person’s welfare in the afterlife. The funeral included a recession in which the coffin was transported to the Nile on a bier (a canopied sled pulled by oxen) and then taken across the river by boat (painted green to symbolize nature and rebirth) to be buried on the West Bank. Mourners tore their clothes and tossed dust onto their heads to show their grief. The boat was used to transport a dead king across the Nile was sometimes buried with the Pharaoh himself. The funerary boat of King Khufu was found in a pit alongside the Great Pyramid of Giza. Build of cedar wood, it was over 43 meters in length.
At the tomb the coffin was placed upright for an important ceremony which was called “opening the mouth”. This involved the dead person’s son, or a priest, symbolically opening the eyes, ears and mouth of the body with a special instrument. This ritual ensured that the dead would be able to speak, see, hear, eat, drink and move around in the afterlife. After the funeral, the tomb was sealed. Most Egyptians lived on the east bank of the Nile, and the West Bank, where the Sun set, was traditionally considered the place of the dead. The deceased were said to go to meet the sun when they died, making a symbolic crossing of the Nile, which laid between the lands of the living and the dead. It was on the West Bank most Egyptians were buried.
The first Egyptians buried their dead in pits in the desert, where the dry sand would preserve the bodies. Later, wealthier families put their dead in long low tombs that were made of small stones and bricks, called mastabas. Next came the era of pyramid-building, in which Pharaohs and other important officials were laid to rest in huge stone pyramids, mostly in the region of the capital of Memphis, near modern Cairo.

Now comes the memorable touch-down to the Pyramids of Giza – outstanding works of Art, still standing. They are as impressive as they can be, but not because of how they were built, a fact which honestly does not fascinated me as much as the design of Tutankhamun’s treasure and jewelry, but because the Great Pyramid of Giza (which belonged to King Khufu) is the only Wonder of the Ancient World which can be admired in our times. I can’t believe I had the chance to see it in this lifetime – it is a tremendous opportunity and an unmatchable pleasure for me to have touched it personally – I don’t know how many people can say that, but I encourage all passionate (Spiritual) travelers to do it.
Actually there are 111+ pyramids in Egypt and the most famous are the ones located on the plateau at Giza, outside Cairo. These include the massive pyramids of King Khufu, Khafra and Menkaura, as well as several smaller ones and various mastabas (mud-brick tombs) in which the family, friends and servants of the Pharaohs were buried. The Giza Complex also includes the ruins of mortuary temples, where offerings were made in honor of the dead kings.

The largest of the Giza pyramids is the Great Pyramid, which was built for King Khufu around 2528 BC with 2.3 limestone blocks, each weighing more than two tons. At 138m high, the Pyramid was originally covered with white limestone casing, but most of this was removed in medieval times for building work in Cairo. Alongside it are three smaller pyramids that were built for the Pharaoh’s chief wives. The Great Pyramid of Giza took 20 years to build, with around 100,000 blocks being set in place each year (a rate of 285 blocks a day). The entrance to it remained secret for 3000 years. It was finally located in the ninth century by a local Arab ruler enticed by tales of magic metals to be found within.
I wouldn’t like to bore you with irrelevant details regarding the layout of the Pyramid, the burial chambers or anything like that as you all have internet for this, but I would like to note an important discovery being made shortly after my arrival from Egypt. You might call it a coincidence but I only believe in Synchronicity.

D6CD2E1F-4414-4408-981D-B7B91DA09744

It appears that Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza contains a hidden Void at least a hundred feet long. The void is the first large inner structure discovered within the 4,500-year-old pyramid since the 1800s – a find made possible by recent advances in high-energy particle physics. The results were published in the journal Nature.
“This is definitely the discovery of the century,” says archaeologist and Egyptologist Yukinori Kawae, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer. “There have been many hypotheses about the pyramid, but no one even imagined that such a big void is located above the Grand Gallery.”
Its purpose is yet unknown but I, as a Spiritual Entity, am looking forward to the progress of Science to sustain this dazzling mystery.
According to many researchers, it is believed that the three Pyramids of the Giza Plateau mimic the constellation of Orion, or at least used to. The pyramid positions on the ground are a reflection of the positions of the stars in the constellation Orion circa 10,400 B.C.

Close by the Giza pyramids stands the mysterious The Great Sphinx of Egypt – “The talisman of the Nile”. This is a huge statue of a lion with the face of a Pharaoh, supposedly modeled on that of King Khafra, a younger son of the Great Pyramid builder Khufu, who ordered the building of the second largest Pyramid. The origins of the Sphinx remain obscure. It is strategically placed so as to guard both his tomb and those of his father and step-brother. The associated temple is the only surviving temple dating from Dynasty IV. Over the centuries it wax frequently covered in sand and eventually dig out. In Greek legend, the Sphinx killed any man who could not solve the riddle she set, but to the ancient Egyptians the Sphinx was a symbol of the divine power of a king (the lion being associated with the sun-god Ra).
Author Robert K. G. Temple proposes that the Sphinx was originally a statue of the Jackal-Dog Anubis, the God of the Necropolis, and that its face was recarved in the likeness of a Middle Kingdom pharaoh, Amenemhet II. Temple bases his identification on the style of the eye make-up and style of the pleats on the headdress.

Impressive enough, I had the opportunity to enter the Pyramid of King Menkaure, whose pyramid at Giza was called Netjer-er-Menkaure which means “Menkaure is Divine”. This pyramid is the smallest of the three pyramids at Giza. This pyramid measures 103.4 meters at the base and 65.5 meters in height but that is not relevant. I have been inside and I am so proud of it – the entrance is tight, uncomfortable for tall people and rather claustrophobic, the air is thin but it is definitely worth it. Moreover, a significant number of statues depicting Hathor were found in the Valley Temple.
Hathor is an ancient Egyptian goddess who personified the principles of joy, feminine love, and motherhood. Hathor is commonly depicted as a cow goddess with horns in which is set a sun disk with Uraeus. Twin feathers are also sometimes shown in later periods as well as a menat necklace. Hathor may be the cow goddess who is depicted from an early date on the Narmer Palette and on a stone urn dating from the 1st dynasty that suggests a role as sky-goddess and a relationship to Horus who, as a sun god, is “housed” in her. On my way out of the Pyramid, my Dad was taking pics – just take a look at this star apparently coming out of a private jet – it’s me!

What have I learned from this trip?
Apart from a consistent structure of dense historical information and the fact I have seen the Truth with my own eyes, I have reached a higher level of intellectual maturity.
The differences between the richness and opulence of King Tut’s treasures and the way the population is currently living struck a chord in me.
One conclusion must be drawn here – eradicate poverty and the world will be free.
I am yet impressed how naturally light Egyptian people handle these matters when it comes to living. They simply praise what they have and do not seem to complain. They are confident that tourism will once more elevate their country’s economy, greatly affected by violent incidents and attacks and the withdrawal of many industrial foreign investors due to safety concerns.
Considering the number of people who ask me about my trip in Egypt lately, I believe the confidence is justified and I would be delighted to visit this country again, bathe in the Sun and spend a little more time in the Egyptian Museum.
I was well received and well treated therefore I recommend this destination wholeheartedly. I am very proud I have reached this Sacred Land and Ever since I came back, I feel fearless and entitled to step on the Golden Throne of my Individuality. King Tutankhamun is watching over me. I have Horus, Anubis and Hathor always with me.
The myths, the legends and the glory of Ancient Egypt will never cease to fascinate me and I am deeply honored by the wisdom I have achieved and the Doors of Perception which are now opened to me.
Thank you, Egypt – delighted to make your acquaintance!

Yours Truly, Her Majesty,
