Sekhem is a form of Ancient Egyptian Healing. Sekhem has developed over the centuries and was taught as part of the spiritual practices in the Temples of Ancient Egypt.
Egypt was then the cultural centre of the world where everyone sought wisdom and learning, and scholars came far and wide to study in the temples. However, few made it through the arduous process of initiation into the Priesthood. Some did succeed and took their teachings back to their homelands where they taught others the sacred art of healing of mysticism. Over the years, the teachings changed as the teachers developed and grew with their philosophy until each system had its own distinctive feel and energy.
The Sekhem energy is associated with the Egyptian lion-headed Goddess Sekhmet, the Guardian and Protector of this energy. She is strongly linked with the star Sirus, the brightest star in the sky and, according to myth and legend, was present at the creation of our universe. This Goddess is the Bringer of Destruction and Healing, as she is both the Patroness of War and Healing Sciences, and despite the many myths of destruction, she is also considered to be the Goddess of Regeneration and Healing. Sekhmet destroys that which no longer serves us, so that we can build on a new foundation. Sekhmet also helps us with the transformation in our lives and breaking down old worn out patterns, which no longer serve us.
