Brief History of Sekhem
There are many references to Sekhem as a hands-on healing system on the walls of the very early temples and pyramids. Scrolls found in these ruins, researched and translated by anthropologists, such as Wallis Budge, suggest this healing system pre-dates Reiki, even though the latter was the first to emerge in the West.
The word Sekhem itself means ‘might and power’ for it is related to, and acts directly on, the individual’s soul frequency. Mythologically, Sekhem was associated with Sekhmet, the lion-headed goddess of destruction and regeneration; one who destroys all that no longer serves us, so that we can build on a new foundation. Seen as the patroness of war and healing sciences, Sekhmet was the guardian of this energy and also protector against evil.
(Further evidence of her protective power came to light earlier this year when archaeologists unearthed 66 well-preserved statues of Sekhmet near Luxor that were buried to ward off evil from the temple of pharaoh Amenhotep III. It is also believed that 700 such statues once stood at this temple on the west bank of the Nile to protect it from danger.)
Although historically associated with a goddess, Sekhem is not a religious energy but rather one of pure unconditional love that always works to one’s highest will and good. Because of this and the high frequency it vibrates at, the energy cannot be forced or imposed upon anyone.
Power of Sekhem
When receiving or working with Sekhem, the energy can support whatever changes you want to make within yourself – including breaking patterns that may be holding you back from moving forward and living a fuller life. It assists you to take responsibility for your development in every aspect of your life, be it at the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level of your being and gives you the strength and courage to make the changes, if you are ready and willing to work with it.
When it comes to issues of health, most physical conditions, as we know, are triggered by unresolved emotions and/or limiting thought and belief patterns. The high vibration of Sekhem can help shed light on these issues (which are often deep-set) by bringing them to your awareness so that you can deal with them with more clarity (if you are willing to act on your inner knowing and wisdom). Like intuition, Sekhem operates beyond time and space right down to the core of our belief systems at the soul level.
Although it is believed to be the origins of all hand-on healing systems, it wasn’t until the 1980s that Sekhem was re-introduced into modern times, to suit the conditions of life today, by Helen Belot, a qualified nurse working in the medical profession as an Occupational Health Therapist at the time. An Australian, with many past life recollections as a High Priestess and a life-long interest in energy and esoteric work, Helen has been quoted as saying that Sekhem is an on-going and developing system and not static or totally complete as yet and that the “the concept of Sekhem is based on the fundamental Laws of the Universe. As the mass consciousness rises and people have a greater understanding of these laws, the Sekhem energy will grow and remain in advance of the current thinking’’. The energy also complements and assists with the ascension process mankind has been experiencing for some time now.
Every healing session is intention based and always set to the highest will and good of the client, so it is imperative that the client is comfortable with the formation of the intention when wanting to work through or overcome specific issues. This intention is repeated (both by the client and practitioner) at some point during the session.
Like all other channelled energies Sekhem comes from Source…but what gives it that very distinctive vibrational pattern is its travel via the Sirian star system from where it flows down through the practitioner right into the centre of the Earth and then back up again and out through the practitioner’s hands. As the energy is constantly circulated in this way, the practitioner’s own energy never gets depleted. In Sekhem the energy is called in a concentrated way, to ensure its purity.
The energy is then transferred on to the client through both physical and non-physical touch. and so covers all layers of the energy body in the process. The focus is very much on the energetic body as the Sekhem practice is all about tuning into the energy bodies for information and guidance and sensing what needs addressing at the emotional, mental, spiritual layers of the body to correct any imbalances there, that could also aid with any healing required in the physical body.
While channelling the energy, different practitioners pick up different things and in different ways. I sometimes receive messages for clients in the form of words or images. These messages either come from a loved one no longer in this world or from the client’s higher self (the all knowing self within all of us) to either help them understand their situation or confirm something that they need to know. Many times clients too have experiences during the session and some say they feel secure, comforted, relaxed… as it flows through them, sometimes quite powerfully.
I have seen this energy assist individuals in numerous ways, including learning to deal with painful childhood issues, cope better with people and situations, let go of pain and hurt, broaden their perspective and feel more inspired and motivated.
