  • Ancient Egyptian Ceremony of the Raising of the Djed Pillar, 5th September 2018

    Osiris Poster by Jacqui Taliesin El MasriWednesday 5th September is the Ancient Egyptian Ceremony of the Raising of the Djed Pillar. 

    Djed.svgThe worship of the Djed pillar, and the annual 'Raising of the Djed' ceremony, is amongst the earliest ritualistic religious practices of ancient Egypt.  The Djed symbol is widely regarded as a religious icon, see omage of the Djed Pillar (right), symbolising stability, is by Jeff Dahl - Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0.

    The Djed (sometimes spelt Tet) was stated to have arisen from the primordial mound of creation and Egyptologist Wallis Budge believed to be the backbone of the Egyptian god Wzr (also known as Asar or Osirus) although it's not clearly understood what it is meant to represent. A laminated poster of Wzr (Ausar, Osirus) by Jacqui Taliesin El Masri of Alkhemi.co.uk (as shown left) is also available from the Harmony Shop along with other Egyptian Deity posters by Jacqui.

    Wzr was the Deity and guardian of the dead, the underworld (also called Amenti) and the afterlife.

    The ancient illustrations below show the raising of the Djed ceremony, and may be representing the resurrection of Wzr following his assassination by his brother Set.  This took place before Wzr famously 'sired' Heru (Horus after subsequent Greek influence), leading to the resurrection and Immaculate Conception parallels with the later Christian story of Jesus.

    Raising the Djed anient images

    Naturally the images have also led to speculation that the Raising of the Djed pillar is a metaphor for the erection of the male phallus.

    The ceremony was sometimes associated with the earlier Deity Ptah, whose scepter was a cross between an ankh and the Djed symbol and Ptah was sometimes nicknamed the noble djed. Ptahwas traditionally illustrated with blue skin and was the male aspect of the trinity (or triad) Ptah, Sekhmet and Nefertum (the child).  Ptah was a prominent Deity in the Memphis vicinity of Egypt.  Memphis, which was reputedly founded by Menes,and which is situated near the metropolis of Sakkara (about 12 miles/18km from present day Cairo) and was the Egyptian Capital City during the Old Kingdom (c3100-2258BCE).  Interestingly, Wzr is always shown with green skin. 

    According to some sources, over time Ptah slowly became assimilated with Wzr, who formed part of the Ennead (nine prominent Deities associated with one of the popular creation myths).

  • Celestial Forecast July 2022

    Significant dates from folklore, lunar and meteorological activities this month in green

    July CF is hereJuly is still British summertime. Time for the orchids, delphiniums, dahlias, hydrangeas, irises and sunflowers to bloom, and the lingering perfumed scent of roses, honeysuckle, gardenias and jasmine on the night air. Traditionally, here in the UK, July would feature the Wimbledon Championship tennis finals and Henley Regatta.  

    The month of July was renamed to honour Julius Caesar, who was born in this month. Under Roman rule it was previous called Quintilis, meaning the 5th month in Latin. This was before January became the opening month of the calendar year, when the Gregorian calendar was established by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called Æftera Līþa (after midsummer).

    During July, as well as the intriguing Mary Magdalene Day (abandoned in 1552), we have Canada Day (1st) plus a couple of international independence celebrations – USA (4th) and France (14th). We can look forward to a sprinkling of Zoroastrian, Buddhist and Hindu Festivals as well as a Roman annual commemoration. However, the month is inundated with Egyptian Deity commemorations, initially featuring the birthday of Ra (13th), then the month ends with the fiveEpagomenal Days - also known as the 'Days out of Time' - which celebrated the Birthdays of five major Egyptian Deities, culminating with the end of the Egyptian calendar year (1st August being their New Year). Egypt was formerly known asKhem in times of antiquity. Througout these auspicious dates in the Ancient Egyptian calendar, Katie and I will be at the Sun & Moon Festival (Merrist Wood, Guildford), where we will be offering a selection of workshops and three Forest Bathing Taster Sessions. We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on Sunday 10th at Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary (near Shere, Surrey) and the Kosmon Sanctuary (Tadworth, near Epsom, Surrey) on Tuesday 12th July. The Full Moon Guided Healing meditation is taking place on Wednesday 13th, the night of the Thunder Moon (reaches its peak at 19:38).

    1 July Tir JishanFriday 1st July, in Fasli tradition, is the Zoroastrian Rain Festival of Tir Jashan, dedicated to the star deities of Tir and Teshar. 

    Give bracelets made of the seven colours of the rainbow.  At the end of the festival go to a high place and throw them into the wind (biodegradeable I hope). 

    As the Festival is actually on the 13th of Tir, some Zorastrian traditions convert this to 4th July.

    1st July Canada dayFriday 1st July is also Canada Day; the national day of Canada.

    This is a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of Canadian confederation, which took place with the passing of the Constitution Act on 1st July 1867, where the new name Canada recognised the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick being united into a single Dominion within the British Empire. 

    4 July American Independence DayMonday 4th July is American Independence Day.

    This marks the anniversary of unanimous adoption of the Declaration of Independence, by the Second Continental Congress in 1776

    The Declaration announced that the 13 colonies claimed their separation from England, which eventually led to the formation of the United States.

    24 July Guru PurnimaWednesday 13th July, being the day of the Full Moon in July, it is also Guru Purnima (the Full Moon of the Gurus) in Hindu tradition. The day of full moon, Purnima, in the month of Ashadh of the Hindu calendar is traditionally celebrated as Guru Purnima by Hindus.

    On this day, devotees offer puja (worship) to their Guru. The Sanskrit root "Gu" means darkness or ignorance. "Ru" denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore one who removes the darkness of ignorance is a Guru.

    It is a day for celebration and worship, a day on which the disciples remember and express their gratitude to the lineage of Gurus. Hindus believe that a Guru is necessary to make one understand the formless Divinity.  

     

    24 July Asalkha Puja dayWednesday 13th July is Asalhka Puja Day.

    This is a Buddhist commemoration of the Buddha's first public speech to five ascetics. He declared the middle way, the noble eight-fold path and the four noble truths upon which Buddhism is based. 

    13 July Birthday of Ra full bodyWednesday 13th July, according to some sources, was the Ancient Egyptian Festival to celebrate the Birthday of Ra.

    Since Ra was the God of creation this could be interpreted as the day man was created! 

    Ra was also associated with the Sun and healing so perhaps it is no coincidence that the Roman’s celebrated Apollo on the same (equivalent) date. 

    13 July Games of ApolloWednesday 13th July, in Roman Times, was the culmination of the Games of Apollo.

    As early as 212 BCE 13th July was the celebration of Apollo as the God of Healing (especially during wars) but this later extended into an 8 day festival ending on 13th July. 

    Apollo was associated with the Sun and his twin Diana (Goddess of Hunting) was associated with the moon. 

    Apollo became significant among the Romans when Augustus Caesar, as a young man, chose Apollo as his own god, and attributed his victory over Antony and Cleopatra to Apollo’s superiority over the Egyptian Deities! 

    Augustus is said to have described Apollo as: “Governor of Roman destiny; master of the sun; archer; augur; averter of pestilence; and giver of sound morals to the young.”

    14 July Bastille DayThursday 14th July is Bastille Daya national holiday in France.

    This commemorates a mob of Frenchmen, rebelling against the rule of their king, who stormed a prison to obtain weapons and free prisoners.

    It sparked the French Revolution in 1789.

    22nd July Mary Magdalene DayFriday 22nd July was celebrated in the First Book of Common Prayer, 1549, as Saint Mary Magdalene’s Day in the Christian calendar.  When the Second Book of Common Prayer was published 3 years later in 1552, this feast day, amongst others was omitted.

    Early celebrations of Mary Magdalene's Feast Day included marriage symbolism such as creating your own healing oil blends "for the marital bed”, probably including oils such as rose, sandalwood, and ylang ylang. 

    Apparently the original feast day venerated her as a representative of the perfect wife (church liturgy recommended readings such as Proverbs 31:10-31), so it is a day to celebrate the Sacred Feminine, maybe plant something, sew something, cook something and, of course, love something. 

    Sun Moon Festival promoTuesday 26th July to 2nd August is the Sun & Moon Festival at Merrist Wood, Guildford. It's not organised by us, but Katie and Joanna will be there for the entire week.  

    A wonderful week of wellness and wellbeing. Hundreds of workshops covering everything from pilates to personal development. Singing, dancing, drumming - and so much more. And loads for the kids too! Join the tribe! And let the light of love shine on you!

    Katie is offering three taster Forest Bathing events over the duration of the festival. Times/dates to be organised by the festival co-ordinators.

    Joanna is running three workshops on:

    1/. Connecting with the Essene Elemental and Nature Angels (time/date tba
    2/. A New Moon Meditation on Thursday 28th July
    3/. Harness the Power of the Moon for Health, Wealth & Wellbeing.

    26 July eve of Epagomenal DaysTuesday 26th July (or 13th July) is the Egyptian eve of the Epagomenal Days of celebration for the birthdays of their ancient major Deities. 

    The exact correlation of the Egyptian New year to the modern calendar is disputed, but I favour the linking with the heliacal rising of Sirius (dawn visibility of Sirius) as this star, known to the Egyptians as Sopdet (pronounced Soppday) was closely associated with Aset. 

    The celebrations began on the Eve of the Epagomenal Days - viewed as 26th July, although some sources equate it to 13th July). The following days marked the birthdays of the five children of the Egyptian Deity Nut. 

    27 July birthday of AusarBeing dates of powerful Egyptian Energies these may prove ideal days for an Egyptian Energy Reyad Sekh Em 1-2-1 healing session. 

    28 July birthday of HeruAccording to myth, Tehuti (Thoth) enabled Nut to give birth to her five children [Aset (Isis), Ausar (Osirus), Set, Heru (Horus the elder) and Nebt-het (Nephthys)] by using his cunning to win a game of draughts with the moon.

    By winning a seventy second part of the moon's light, he managed to create five extra days (the Epagomenal Days, also known as the Days out of Time), which allowed Nut to give birth to her five children without breaking Ra's decree that her children could not be born on any existing calendar day.

    This myth more than any other is responsible for Tehuti (Thoth)'s role as a lunar deity.  

    29 July birthday of SetWednesday 27th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Ausar (Osirus). 

    He is also known as Wzr, Wesir, Asar, Ausir, Usir, Usire,Osirus,Osirus. The latter two versions being used later after the Greek occupation, but the variation is mainly due to the lack of vowels in heiroglyphic language meaning that there are many phonetic representations. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. 

    30 July birthday of Aset

    Thursday 28th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Heru (Horus).

    This is Heru-ur [also known as Horus the Elder (Gr)], sibling of Ausar and Aset, not their son. Not all sources list him as a sibling, Egyptian mythology widely varies depending on the era and geographical location of the source within Egypt. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. 

    10 July New MoonThursday 28th July@ 18:55 is Lunasa New Moon.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2022. 

    Friday 29th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Set (Seth). Set is also known as Seth (Gr), Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh or Suty which probably ultimately led to the term SatanSee the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    31 July birthday of Nebt hetSaturday 30th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Aset [Aset, Iset, Isis (Gr)]

    Auset is responsible for resurrecting her murdered husband and, being mad with grief, uses her magical powers to temporarily restore breath and life into Ausar in order to concieve their son Heru.See the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    Sunday 31st July is the Egyptian Birthday of Nebt-het  [Nebet-Het, Nebthet, Nepthys (Gr)].

    Nebh-het is the sister-wife of Set and is typically paired with her sister Auset when undertaking funerary rites because of their protective priestess roles with mummified bodies. See the entry under 26th July for the full story.

  • Egyptian Day of the Light of Aset (Isis) & Festival of Diana, 12th/13th August 2018

    isis with sampleSunday 12th August is the Day of the Light of Aset (Isis).

    On this day Aset (Isis) is celebrated with all forms of light including sun worship, during the day and candles at night. 

    Interesting that it is very close to the date for the Roman Festival of Diana, which no doubt was a development from the Egyptian Festival.

    Image (left) by Jacqui Taliesin El Masra (Alkhemi.co.uk) also available as a laminated poster from this site - see Harmony Shop.

    Monday 13th August, in Roman tradition, was the Festival of Diana, being the date upon which King Servius Tullius dedicated her shrine on the Aventine Hill in Rome in the mid-sixth century BCE.  Diana was the hunting goddess, associated with wild animals and woodlands. She later became a moon goddess, supplanting Luna; and the moon was an emblem of chastity. Oak groves were especially sacred to her. She was praised in poetry for her strength, athletic grace, purity, distinct beauty, and hunting skill.  Despite her virginal status, Diana was also a Goddess of Fertility.

    By keeping traditions, Pagan communities and those in Ancient Egypt retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. 

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony. A number of virtual courses are starting again this week, including Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1 (which is now fully available as interactive training modules) details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. We don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.

    If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, Joanna offers distant intuitive readings (past life and/or aura readings) and distant 1-2-1 healings and virtual healing circles. We also have meditations available.

    An MP3 Meditation to visit the Akashic Records with Tehuti is available from the CDs and Meditations section of the Harmony Shop. This is a meditation to visit your personal Akashic record (which the Egyptians believed were housed in the Halls of Amenti) to see if hidden blockages to your spiritual growth and wellbeing may be revealed at this time. The totality of the Akashic records are said to contain and describe all knowledge of human experience as well as the history of the cosmos; so they could be described as the DNA of the Universe. This meditation was devised for 19th August or 19th September (both being Festivals of Tehuti) would add emphasis, but can be used anytime.

The latter two versions being used later after the Greek occupation, but the variation is mainly due to the lack of vowels in heiroglyphic language meaning that there are many phonetic representations. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. 

    Ausar is the oldest of the 5 siblings born to Geb and Nut during the Epagomenal Days, he is the Deity of fertility, agriculture, vegetation, the dead, the afterlife, resurrection, life and alcohol. He is depicted with green skin and a pharaonic beard, partially mummified, holding his crook and flail and wearing the atef crown. His consort was Aset (also known as Isis) who co-ruled the Kingdom. According to folklore, the younger brother Set was very jealous, tricks Ausar into getting into a specially made coffin 'to try it for size', then nails down the lid and throws it in the Nile thereby murdering his older brother and userping the throne. Auset finds the coffin inside a cedar of lebanon tree which has grown around it.

    She hides the body amongst reeds, intending to return and use her magic to bring him back to life. Before she can do this, Set finds it and dismembers the body into many pieces. Auset searches and collects all the pieces together (except the penis which had allegedly been eaten by a catfish) and uses her spells to resurrect him briefly to create their divine son Heru (Horus), who was postumously born through immaculate conception.  The process of re-membering Ausar is hought to have led to the prototype for mummification. 

    Horus standing by Jeff DahlWednesday 28th July is the Birthday of Heru-Ur (Horus). This is Heru-ur [also known as Horus the Elder (Gr)], sibling of Ausar and Aset, not their son. Not all sources list him as a sibling, Egyptian mythology widely varies depending on the era and geographical location of the source within Egypt.

    He is generally depicted as a Hawk or Falcon headed Deity, although sometimes he is shown as a hieracosphinx; a creature with a lion's body and a hawk's head and wings, with some believing he was the inspiration for the Sphinx in Giza. Heru was viewed as a Sky Deity, whereas Nut is also viewed as the sky in its entirety, Heru's right eye represented the Sun and his left eye was the Moon. He was sometimes referred to as Kemwer meaning the 'great black one' and was later viewed as the patron of the pharaohs and associated with truth and hence also with Ma'at, upholder of the truth on Judgement Day. The movement of these across the heavens was thought to take place as he traversed the sky in his form as a hawk or falcon

    64px SetThursday 29th Julyis the Birthday of Set (Seth). Set is also known as Seth (Gr), Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh or Suty which probably ultimately led to the term Satan. He is overlord of the red desert in the south of Egypt and oversees fire, deserts, chaos, disorder, storms, trickery, envy, violence, as well as foreigners! One of his major chacteristics was said to be potent, forceful indescriminate sexual desire with homosexual tendencies.

    Yet he is conversely credited for sitting on Ra's solar boat and helping to repel Apep - the serpent of chaos. He is depicted with an animal head which is not readily recognised as any creatures known currently but with an extended curved snout and long upright rectangular ears, he resembles a mixture of a jackal, a donkey and an aardvark (ant-eater). He's sometimes shown with a canine body and forked tail. Apart from his murderous action on his older brother Ausar, Set is additionally known for his battle against Heru as to who should inherit the Kingdom. During their fight, which in some versions goes on for over 80 years, Heru is said to have destroyed Set's testicles whereas Set is said to have torn out one (or in some versions both) of Heru's eyes  

    64px IsisFriday 30th July is the Birthday of Aset [Auset, Iset, Isis (Gr)]Aset is responsible for resurrecting her murdered husband and, being mad with grief, uses her magical powers to temporarily restore breath and life into Ausar in order to concieve their son Heru. It seems that her anger, sexual desire and sorrow at his death were instrumental in making her magic effective. After Ausar has fathered Horus, he is only able to live in the afterworld (Dwat or Amenti) where he becomes the eternal guardian. Aset is also thought to restore the souls of deceased humans as she did for her husband. 

    Her headdress is said to represent a throne. She is thought to be able change herself into a falcon. Aset is said to have one thousand names and to oversee any number of attributes, but she is best known for her association with health and wellbeing, feminine charms, art, music, wisdom, protection (especially children) and sexuality plus of course magical rites. 
    64px Nepthys

    Saturday 31st July is the Egyptian Birthday of Nebt-Het [Nebet-Het, Nebthet, Nepthys (Gr)]. Nebh-het is the sister-wife of Set and is typically paired with her sister Aset when undertaking funerary rites because of their protective priestess roles with mummified bodies.

    Her headdress depicts a column (sometimes described as a house or a sacred temple enclosure) with a basket on the top. She is sometimes shown as a kite or with protective falcon wings, said to emulate the piercing cries of a wailing moan of the bereaved in mourning. She represents divine assistance and protective guardianship and she is generally considered to be the mother of Anpu [Anubis (Gr)],with Ausaroften cited as being the father,not Set. Nebt-Het is Goddessof rivers, the night, service, protection, the home, the hearth, childbirth, mothers, mourning, the dead, coffins and burial. 

    1st August Khemitian New YearSunday 1st August is the Egyptian New Year as well as the Celtic Festival of Lammas or Lunasa, celebrating the start of the harvest.

  • New Moon New Vision - starting 1st April

    thumbnail new year new vision extra blue tiger 1

    Set your intentions this New Moon!

    The influence of the moon is well documented. From Dr Tom White’s pioneering work on circadian and circalunar rhythms, the effect of lunar cycles on menstruation, and Ferris Jabr’s studies of marine wildlife, to the ancient lore of the zodiac, angels, and the Mansions of the Moon.

    The impact of the full moon on natural processes is well-known - something our ancestors recognised with names drawn from ancient life. The flower moon signified the start of spring, the frost moon heralded the first frost and the harvest moon, the time to bring in the produce. The Druids had numerous ceremonies celebrating the power of the moon.

    Many myths and legends are based on the moon - tales of werewolves, words such as ‘lunatic’ and the notion of the Blue Moon. And it’s not just in the West. The Japanese celebrate Tsukimi or 'Moon Viewing’ every Full Moon. Even now, many people feel restless during a Full Moon, and as we can block out natural light with blinds and eye masks, we realise – it’s more than light, it’s energy.

    Lunar Cycle imageNew Moon, New Vision

    Our rejuvenation programme begins and ends with the New Moon.

    We start on the New Moon of 1st April through to 30th April. We pass through the phases of the moon, drawing on the moon’s energies and sharing ours in return.

    The programme includes distant attunements to the Sun, Moon, and Earth, the zodiac signs of Aries and Taurus (and their Guardian Angels Machidiel and Tual respectively) and the New Chinese Zodiac of the blue water Tiger (started 2nd February), plus Beltane Eve celebrations.

    We will create a supportive space for a select group of participants and build on strengthening our intuition and resolve, drawing on ancient wisdom to balance our chakras, align ourselves to the moon cycle and to create our best life.

    We will also include additional tools, with vision boards, new moon abundance rituals and the power of crystals and nature.

     

    Friday 1st April, New Moon @ 07:27; start of our New Year New Moon Lunar Cycle Alignment Programme

    We use an active WhatsApp group to work through the 28 Mansions of the Moon, (as identified in my sister Angela McGerr's Angel Almanac) and connect with the daily guardians of the lunar cycle.  This enables us to utilise the supportive energy of each lunar phase to move through life, embracing new opportunities.

    Attuned and Aligned This is a fun and participative event, with members of the group supporting each other throughout. Participants will be joining from their homes, with at least 6 online group mentoring sessions with e-mail and What's App support. 

    We ran the course three times in 2021. Eight of the original participants chose to repeat the course a second time, and three repeated it for a third. we ran it again Sunday 2nd January - Tuesday 1st February, three repeated it again.

It is a deep system, which for many people, leads to advancement on their personal healing journey and a spiritual awakening, hence most students are not beginners and many are already Masters of other energy healing systems, though this isn't a pre-requisite.

  • Saturday 12th September, Heritage Open Day at West Horsley Place

     

    285019f4 686c 4a89 8152 7465ed7bbd34Saturday 12th September, Heritage Day at West Horsley Place, where we are offering complimentary Forest Bathing+ taster sessions. There were just 12 places available in the morning which filled very quickly.

    Forest Bathing+ involves a two-three hour immersive experience (depending on the season), ideally within ancient woodland such as rthe grounds of West Horsley Place, Surrey.

    Forest Bathing is an elementary practice (children instinctively enjoy nature this way) which can elicit surprisingly positive reactions. In a nutshell, it can be described as mindful time under the canopy of trees using the senses. Deep breathing is also encouraged; Japanese research uncovered essential wood oils help boost our immune system.

    Some of the scientifically proven benefits of spending time in woodland include reduced stress levels, stronger immune system response, and a stabilised cortisol cycle.

    Joanna has undertaken Forest Bathing+ (FB+) Guide training with The Forest Bathing Institute (TFBI) and works with a team of other TFBI qualified FB+ Guides.

    During the session you will be provided with a sequence of sensory exercises designed to calm the body and mind. Whilst this might sound intimidating, in practice participants love it! If you have ever wondered about the healing benefits of nature, this session should give you a chance to experience it for yourself. To get a better idea of what to expect, please see the Facebook videos below.

    Whilst undertaking the mindfulness sensory exercises during the session, participants will be asked to refrain from talking to each other (and avoid other distractions such as mobile phone use) so that all participants can gain the full benefits from the surroundings.

    Forest Bathing is known in Japan as Shinrin-Yoku where it has been practised for 30+ years and is recognised as offering harmony and wellbeing.

    Joanna also offers Forest Bathing+ sessions throughout Surrey and beyond and through Harmony Healing, Joanna utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony.

  • Saturday 4th December, New Moon & Supermoon @ 07:44 and Total Solar Eclipse

    04 Nov New Moon SupermoonSaturday 4th December @ 07:43 is the New Moon, Supermoon and a total Solar Eclipse (only visible in Antartica but partially visible in South Africa and Namibia). More details at timeanddate.com. A solar eclipse happens whenever the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, hence partly or totally obscuring the Sun for anyone viewing from Earth. This eclipse will not be visible in London but will affect all of us energetically. 

    This December New Moon will have the closest alignment with lunar perigee – the moon's closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit – than any other 2021 supermoon.

    If you feel connected to the lunar cycle, note that our next Full Moon  Unity Consciousnesss Guided Meditation (£20), 7.30-9.30pm (GMT) is on Saturday 18th December, when you will be guided though a mindful chakra healing programme, using colours and crystal energy. You will then be connected above (to the Sky) and below (to the Earth) to be part of the Harmony Healing Lightworker collective and start making a difference by sending regular global healing.

    A Supermoon is when the moon appears larger in the sky because it is reaches the closest proximity to Earth (known as the perigee*) coinciding with the New Moon or Full Moon. Since the New Moon is only a sliver to the naked eye, the Full Moon Supermoons are much more of a visual treat, when the moon may appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than on any other Full Moon occasion. Although it may not seem all that noticeable to us and of course it will depend on good clear viewing conditions; however due to an optical illusion, it will always look bigger and more luminous when closer to the horizon.

    *The moon orbits around the Earth in an ellipse which takes just over 29 days, meaning that it reaches points in the year when it is at its closest (perigee, when it is about 363,000 km away) and furthest (apogee, when it is about 405,500 KM) from our planet. Those old enough might be reminded of Bed Knobs and Broomsticks when Angela Lansbury mentions the perigee and apogee in one of her invocations!

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy.There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board (downloadable instructions on this page) for 2022. Hopefully a move towards a world where we can move freely again and are enjoying a global economic recovery.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the New moon (good for starting new projects) and Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives. 

    We are running a New Year New Vision mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2022. This includes distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 2nd January and 1st February plus Full Moon on 17th January), plus a ritual with the elements on the Imbolc ceremony (1st February) and ending on the Chinese New Year of the Tiger (1st February). Costing £155, more at the Harmony Website.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing, to bring balance and harmony. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 -our next interactive training course series continues next Wednesday, 8th December, but it recorded so it is possible to join and catch up.

    Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest Bathing+ Sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits.

    The current programme includes distant attunements to the Earth, moon, sun & stars (attunements take place on the New Moons plus the Full Moon). The cost to participate is £155. 

    This is intended to be a fun and participative event (though some activities will be recommended rather than compulsory), with members of the group supporting each other throughout the programme. Participants will be joining in from their home location, with at least 3 online virtual group mentoring sessions (totalling over 6 hours) and therefore receiving their attunements by distance, with e-mail and What's App support. See the above video to find out more. We ran it three times in 2021: January/February (taking in Imbolc), again April/May (taking in Beltane and the 555 numerology of the year) and finally October - November (taking in Samhain, which is also known as Halloween). It was a testament to the first course that eight of the original participants chose to repeat the course two months later, and three repeated it for a third time, and three repeated it again in January 2022.

    The video above talks about the Moon Course structure.

    Testimonial from recent participant

    "As we're almost at the end of the course, but still the beginning of a journey, I thought I'd share a few of the things that have changed for me during this moon cycle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I have more space within... I can literally feel it - possibly as a result of the Soul Star and Earth Star Chakras attunement, and also because of the releasing that has been happening over the last 2 weeks.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I have recovered a routine which brings about a more productive day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    My brain has tuned into the fact that I need to lose weight... I've let go of snacking, I'm having beautiful detox baths and have done the oil pulling. I am doing daily dance exercises.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I am meditating more and got back on track with daily self-Reiki.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I'm seeing the bigger picture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I am generally more focused.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Such positive stuff for everyday living! ♥"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Sunday 18th August, Egyptian Feast of Wagy

    Egyptian DeitiesSunday 18th August is the Egyptian Feast of Wagy. 

    Taking place seventeen days after the Egyptian celebrations of New Year's Day, there was the more sombre feast of Wagy, when families paid respect to their ancestors.

    They came to the tombs of the deceased, with offerings, performing rituals, specifically "fumigations" - producing fumes - smoke.

    The ceremonies were often followed by a funerary meal.

  • Sunday 19th September, Ancient Egyptian Fast of Tehuti

    19 Sep Tehuti frestivalSunday 19th September is the Fast of Tehuti, Kemet day; honouring the god Tehuti (Thoth), the God of Magic, Wisdom and Secret Knowledge.

    An MP3 Meditation to visit the Akashic Records with Tehuti is available from the CDs and Meditations section of the Harmony Shop.

    This is a meditation to visit your personal Akashic record (which the Egyptians believed were housed in the Halls of Amenti) to see if hidden blockages to your spiritual growth and wellbeing may be revealed at this time. The totality of the Akashic records are said to contain and describe all knowledge of human experience as well as the history of the cosmos; so they could be described as the DNA of the Universe. This meditation was devised for 19th August or 19th September (both being Festivals of Tehuti), but can be used anytime.

  • Sunday 1st August, Egyptian New Year & Celtic Lunasa or Lammas

    1st August Khemitian New YearSunday 1st August marks the Ancient Egyptian New year, traditionally marked the start of the Nile flood, started by the tears of Aset (Isis) over the death of Asar (Osirus). The exact correlation of the Egyptian New year to the modern calendar is disputed, but I favour the linking with the heliacal rising of Sirius (dawn visibility of Sirius) as this star, known to the Egyptians as Sopdet (pronounced Soppday) was closely associated with Aset. 

    The indigenous name for Ancient Egypt was Khem. Khemitology is the study of Ancient Egypt according to the indigenous tribal elders & oral tradition wisdom keepers; which is quite different to traditional Egyptology though there is some overlap.  See Events & Courses for more about studying Khemitology as a stand alone online module or as part of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy healing

    shutterstock 114601966 Pagan wheelIn the Northern Hemisphere, this is also the Pagan Celebration of Lunasa (also known as Lammas), this is the start of the harvest, season of pregnancy, ripening, transformation and peace. This marks the height of the northern summer, when the Earth is most alive. Spellings vary for this Celtic/Gaelic Festival, which can be called Lughnasadh or Lúnasa (this latter 'Irish' spelling ironically appears closest to what most English-speakers would regard as the phonetic pronunciation — luu-na-sa), see atriptoireland.com for more on this. It is certainly the great festival of Lugh, or Lug, the great Celtic Sun King [Egyptian origins spring to mind here] and God of Light, with August is Lugh's sacred month.  As someone interested in etymology (the study of words) I am thinking that surely the word 'light' (especially with the peculiar silent 'gh' which came to be identified with a host of other rhyming words in English such as sight and fright) comes from 'lugh'?

    According to Celticdruidtemple.com, Lughnasa translates as "the games of Lugh" (pronounced as Lou or sometimes Luff) and alludes to the assembly for games coinciding with the first of three harvests. The month of August is apparently called Lughnasadh in Gaelic and it marks the last day of summer. This was a specifically Gaelic holiday and many of the other Celtic cultures also celebrate an autumn festival known by a range of names.  As Beltaine on 1st May marks the start of summer - Lughnasa marks the end of summer. Lughnasa is historically linked with Lugh, a leading Celtic deity and hero. These games with a bull sacrifice and major feast [with interesting echoes of the Egyptian Bull cult where Ausar (Osirus) was portrayed as a bull-headed deity), which I believe led to the unfortunate Mediterranean Bull Fighting tradition], and for some it was the start of a trial marriage.

    In some Wiccan and modern Pagan traditions, this festival for honouring Lugh is known as Lammas (see thoughtco.com). Allegedly, the word Lammas derives from an Old English phrase hlaf-maesse, translating as loaf mass. Lammas was an annual ritual, recogniing a community's dependency on what Thomas Hardy referred to as 'the ancient pulse of germ and birth.'"

    By keeping traditions, Pagan communities and those in Ancient Egypt retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

  • Sunday 26th - Friday 31st July, Egyptian Epagomenal Days

    Ennead with Heru UrSunday 26th July(or 13th July according to some sources) is the Egyptian Eve of the Epagomenal Days of celebration for the birthdays of their ancient major Deities. The exact correlation of the Egyptian New Year to the modern calendar is disputed, but I favour the linking with the heliacal rising of Sirius (dawn visibility of Sirius) as this star, known to the Egyptians as Sopdet (pronounced Soppday) was closely associated with Aset. The celebrations began on the Eve of the Epagomenal Days - viewed this year as Sunday 26th July (although some sources equate it to 13th July).  The following days marked the birthdays of the five children of the Egyptian Deity Nut.  

    Being dates of powerful Egyptian Energies these may prove ideal days for an Egyptian Energy Reyad Sekh Em 1-2-1 healing session or Egyptian themed course.  

    According to myth, Tehuti (Thoth) enabled Nut to give birth to her five children [Aset (Isis), Ausar (Osiris), Set, Heru-Ur (Horus the Elder) and Nebt-Het (Nephthys)] by using his cunning to win a game of draughts with the moon. By winning a seventy second part of the moon's light, he managed to create five extra days (the Epagomenal Days), which allowed Nut to give birth to her five children without breaking Ra's decree that her children could not be born on any existing calendar day. This myth more than any other is responsible for Tehuti (Thoth)'s role as a lunar deity. 

    I have two course Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1study modules starting this week to co-incide with this Ancient Egyptian Festival also known as the Days out of Time. The courses are held online with Zoom and are fully interactive. This week we have starting: Violet Flame of Amenti = 1 unit (£88) - next series, 3 x Tues mornings 10-12.15 (UK time = GMT +1), 28th July - 11th August & Khemitology Course = 1 unit (£88) - next series, 3 x Wed mornings 10-12.15 (UK time = GMT+1), 29th July - 12th August.

    64px Standing Osiris edit1Monday 27th July (or 14th July according to some sources), in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Ausar. He is otherwise known as Wzr, Wesir, Asar, Ausir, Usir, Usire, and perhaps best known as Osiris or Osirus. The latter two versions being used later after the Greek occupation, but the variation is mainly due to the lack of vowels in heiroglyphic language meaning that there are many phonetic representations. See the entry under 26th July for the full story.  Ausar is the oldest of the 5 siblings born to Geb and Nut during the Epagomenal Days, he is the Deity of fertility, agriculture, vegetation, the dead, the afterlife, resurrection, life and alcohol. He is depicted with green skin and a pharaonic beard, partially mummified, holding his crook and flail and wearing the atef crown. His consort was Auset (also known as Isis), together they ruled the Kingdom.  According to folklore, the younger brother Set was very jealous, tricks Ausar into getting into a specially made coffin 'to try it for size', then nails down the lid and throws it in the Nile thereby murdering his older brother and userping the throne. Auset finds the coffin inside a cedar of lebanon tree which has grown around it. She hides the body amongst reeds, intending to return and use her magic to bring him back to life. Before she can do this, Set finds it and dismembers the body into many pieces. Auset searches and collects all the pieces together (except the penis which had allegedly been eaten by a catfish) and uses her spells to resurrect him briefly to create their divine son Heru (Horus), who was postumously born through immaculate conception.  The process of re-membering Ausar is hought to have led to the prototype for mummification. Image here of Ausar is from Wikipedia is by Jeff Dahl [CC BY-SA 4.0]

    Horus standing by Jeff DahlTuesday 28th July (or 15th July according to some sources), in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Heru-Ur (Horus). See the entry under 26th July for the full story. This is Heru-ur [also known as Horus the Elder (Gr)], sibling of Ausar and Aset, not their son. Not all sources list him as a sibling, Egyptian mythology widely varies depending on the era and geographical location of the source within Egypt. He is generally depicted as a Hawk or Falcon headed Deity, although somnetimes he is shown as a hieracosphinx; a creature with a lion's body and a hawk's head and wings, with some believing he was the inspiration for the Sphinx in Giza. Heru was viewed as a Sky Deity, whereas Nut is also viewed as the sky in its entirety, Heru's right eye represented the Sun and his left eye was the Moon. He was sometimes referred to as Kemwer meaning the 'great black one' and was later viewed as the patron of the pharaohs and associated with truth and hence also with Ma'at, upholder of the truth on Judgement Day. The movement of these across the heavens was thought to take place as he traversed the sky in his form as a hawk or falcon. Image here  of Heru-Ur is from Wikipedia is by Jeff Dahl [CC BY-SA 4.0]

    64px SetWednesday 29th July(or 16th July according to some sources), in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Set (Seth). See the entry under 26th July for the full story. Set is also known as Seth (Gr), Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh or Suty which probably ultimately led to the term Satan. He is overlord of the red desert in the south of Egypt and oversees fire, deserts, chaos, disorder, storms, trickery, envy, violence, as well as foreigners! One of his major chacteristics was said to be potent, forceful indescriminate sexual desire with homosexual tendencies. Yet he is conversely credited for sitting on Ra's solar boat and helping to repel Apep - the serpent of chaos. He is depicted with an animal head which is not readily recognised as any creatures known currently but with an extended curved snout and long upright rectangular ears, he resembles a mixture of a jackal, a donkey and an aardvark (ant-eater). He's sometimes shown with a canine body and forked tail. Apart from his murderous action on his older brother Ausar, Set is additionally known for his battle against Heru as to who should inherit the Kingdom. During their fight, which in some versions goes on for over 80 years, Heru is said to have destroyed Set's testicles whereas Set is said to have torn out one (or in some versions both) of Heru's eyes  Image here of Set is from Wikipedia is by Jeff Dahl [CC BY-SA 4.0]

    64px IsisThursday 30th July (or 17th July according to some sources), in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Aset [Aset, Iset, Isis (Gr)]. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. As said under Ausar (27th July), Auset is responsible for resurrecting her murdered husband and, being mad with grief, uses her magical powers to temporarily restore breath and life into Ausar in order to concieve their son Heru. It seems that her anger, sexual desire and sorrow at his death were instrumental in making her magic effective. After Ausar has fathered Horus, he is only able to live in the afterworld (Dwat or Amenti) where he becomes the eternal guardian. Aset is also thought to restore the souls of deceased humans as she did for her husband.  Her headdress is said to represent a throne. She is thought to be able change herself into a falcon. Auset is said to have one thousand names and to oversee any number of attributes, but she is best known for her association with health and wellbeing, feminine charms, art, music, wisdom, protection (especially children) and sexuality plus of course magical rites. Image here of Auset is from Wikipedia is by Jeff Dahl [CC BY-SA 4.0].
    64px Nepthys

    Friday 31st July (or 18th July according to some sources) is the Egyptian Birthday of Nebt-Het [Nebet-Het, Nebthet, Nepthys (Gr)], see the entry under 26th July for the full story. Nebh-het is the sister-wife of Set and is typically paired with her sister Auset when undertaking funerary rites because of their protective priestess roles with mummified bodies. Her headdress depicts a column (sometimes described as a house or a sacred temple enclosure) with a basket on the top. She is sometimes shown as a kite or with protective falcon wings, said to emulate the piercing cries of a wailing moan of the bereaved in mourning. She represents divine assistance and protective guardianship and she is generally considered to be the mother of Anpu [Anubis (Gr)],with Ausaroften cited as being the father,not Set. Nebt-Het is Goddessof rivers, the night, service, protection, the home, the hearth, childbirth, mothers, mourning, the dead, coffins and burial. Image here of Nebt-het is from Wikipedia is by Jeff Dahl [CC BY-SA 4.0]

    Saturday 1st August (or 19th July according to some sources) is the Egyptian New Year and 1st August is also the Celtic Festival of Lammas or Lunasa, celebrating the start of the harvest.

  • Sunday 5th September, Ancient Egyptian Ceremony of the Raising of the Djed Pillar

    05 Sep DjedSunday 5th September is the Ancient Egyptian Ceremony of the Raising of the Djed Pillar. 

    The worship of the Djed pillar, and the annual 'Raising of the Djed' ceremony, is amongst the earliest ritualistic religious practices of ancient Egypt.  The Djed symbol is widely regarded as a religious icon. 

    The Djed (sometimes spelt Tet) was stated to have arisen from the primordial mound of creation and Egyptologist Wallis Budge believed to be the backbone of the Egyptian god Wzr (also known as Asar or Osirus) although it's not clearly understood what it is meant to represent. An informative poster of Wzr (Ausar, Osirus) by Jacqui Taliesin El Masry of Alkhemi is available from the Harmony Shop along with other Egyptian Deity posters by Jacqui.

    Wzr was the Deity and guardian of the dead, the underworld (also called Amenti) and the afterlife.

    The ceremony was sometimes associated with the earlier Deity Ptah, whose sceptre was a cross between an ankh and the Djed symbol and Ptah was sometimes nicknamed the noble djed. Ptahwas traditionally illustrated with blue skin and was the male aspect of the trinity (or triad) Ptah, Sekhmet and Nefertum (the child). Ptah was a prominent Deity in the Memphis vicinity of Egypt. Memphis, which was reputedly founded by Menes,and which is situated near the metropolis of Sakkara (about 12 miles/18km from present day Cairo) and was the Egyptian Capital City during the Old Kingdom (c3100-2258BCE). Interestingly, Wzr is always shown with green skin. 

    According to some sources, over time Ptah slowly became assimilated with Wzr, who formed part of the Ennead (nine prominent Deities associated with one of the popular creation myths).

    The ancient illustrations below show the raising of the Djed ceremony, and may be representing the resurrection of Wzr following his assassination by his brother Set. This took place before Wzr famously 'sired' Heru (Horus after subsequent Greek influence), leading to the resurrection and Immaculate Conception parallels with the later Christian story of Jesus. Naturally the images have also led to speculation that the Raising of the Djed pillar is a metaphor for the erection of the male phallus.

  • Thursday 12th/Friday 13th August = Egyptian Day of the Light of Aset (Isis), Roman Festival of Diana & Japanese Festival of Obon

    12 August Day of the Light of IsisThursday 12th August is the Day of the Light of Aset (Isis).

    On this day Aset (Isis) is celebrated with all forms of light including sun worship, during the day and candles at night. 

    There was also a Nile festival named variously as Jabr El-Khalig, Wafa El-Nil or Fath El-Khalig (European scholars refer to it as the Marriage of the Nile), a nocturnal illuminated celebration involving a clay statue Arousat El-Nil (the Bride of the Nile) which was deposited in the river.

    Interesting that it is very close to the date for the Roman Festival of Diana, which no doubt was a development from the Egyptian Festival.

    13 August Festival of Diana framedFriday 13th August, in Roman tradition, was the Festival of Diana, being the date upon which King Servius Tullius dedicated her shrine on the Aventine Hill in Rome in the mid-sixth century BCE. 

    Diana was the hunting goddess, associated with wild animals and woodlands. 

    She later became a moon goddess, supplanting Luna; and the moon was an emblem of chastity. 

    Oak groves were especially sacred to her.

    She was praised in poetry for her strength, athletic grace, purity, distinct beauty, and hunting skill. 

    Despite her virginal status, Diana was also a Goddess of Fertility.

    13 15 August Chinese Festival of ObonFriday 13th - Monday 16th August is Obon (also known as Bon); a Buddhist festival to honour dead loved ones.

    Celebrated through the lighting of bonfires, sacred meals, paper lanterns and dancing.

    See more atjapan-guide.comInterestingly, there are some parallels between the Ancient Egyptian Day of the Light and the modern communities in Japan celebrating Obon through lanterns and bonfires thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. 

    By keeping traditions, ancient communities in Egypt & Rome retained a sense of harmony and connection.

  • Thursday 16th June, Egyptian Festival of Leyleten-Nuktah, Night of the Tear Drop

    16th June Leyleten NuktahThursday 16th June is the Ancient Egyptian Festival, known as Leyleten-Nuktah, the Night of the Tear Drop. A miraculous tear-drop as Aset (Isis) began the mourning of her brother/husband Asar (Osirus), was believed to fall into the Nile causing it to rise and bring new life to the land. The date is actually the 11th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Ba-oo-neh, so some confusion arises when trying to convert this to our Gregorian calendar, but most settle on or around 16th June.

    Posters of Aset (Isis) and other Egyptian Deities, by Jacqui Taliesin El Masry are available from Harmony Healing Shop.

    16th  June – Night of the Teardrop (Festival ofLeylet-en-Nuktah)
    To purchase exercise see below

    The ancient land of Khemit (Egypt) was incredibly fertile due to the silt deposited by the River Nile.  Many rivers flow north to south and flood in the winter months when the mountain snow melts at the source.

    The Nile River was always the backbone of Khemitian life. The mighty river flows northwards for some 4,000 miles from the mountains of Equatorial Africa (Blue Nile) and Lake Victoria (White Nile) before it empties into the Mediterranean Sea via the Nile Delta. The development of the Khemitian civilization could not have happened were it not for the Nile, as it is the only significant source of water in this desert region. It would flood annually in the summer months, depositing tons of nutrient-rich sediment; when the waters receded the silt would stay behind, fertilizing the land, enabling rich agricultural production.

    Nilometers were used to record how high the Nile was during the year.  Nilometers, which were marked staircases build down into the Nile, were placed at strategic points so the Khemitians could monitor the changes in the water level.

    If flooding was too heavy, local villages would be washed away. Minimal flooding or no flood at all would mean famine. A successful harvest depended on the flood levels being exactly right.

    Since the Khemitian lifestyle revolved around the Deities (Neteru), the great ‘inundation’ when the Nile flooded was attributed to Aset’s tears over the death of her beloved Ausar.  Records indicate that in the days of Ancient Khemit, this flooding probably occurred around the middle of June which then coincided with the heliacal rising of Sirius, a star that they associated with Aset and an astronomical event which could have been easily pinpointed. 

    The Khemitians called it, Night of a Teardrop.  On this night, (June 16th) when the moon rose high in its sky, Aset shed blessed and mournful tears for her beloved, Ausar. The precious tears were then collected causing the Nile to bring forth its annual flood. Even in Aset’s pain, something divine came forth.

    Bring me the milk of Aset, the flood of Nebt-Het, the overspill of the lake, the surge of the sea, life, prosperity, health, happiness, bread, beer...

  • Thursday 17th September, Equinox New Moon @ 12.01

    Thursday 17th September@ 12.01 is the Equinox New Moon or Pagan Dark Moon.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy.There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board (downloadable instructions on this page) for the rest of 2020. Hopefully a move towards a world where we can move freely again and are enjoying a global economic recovery.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the New moon (good for starting new projects) and Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.
