Karnak was considered one of the most sacred sites in Egypt and a center of ancient faith during the New Kingdom. It served as the earthly residence of the gods and a portal connecting the mortal realm to the Divine. The temple history claims it was built at the spot where Ptah, the creator God, began his work of creation. The rituals performed within its walls exalted the connection and communication with the gods, and enhanced the ability to receive of their gifts and blessings which would ensure the evolution and well-being of Egypt and its people.
Karnak is Egypt’s largest temple complex, and is dedicated to the all-powerful Egyptian God Amun-Re. The recorded peak was 1550 until 1070 B.C.E. But our tour guide Mohammed shared with us that many of the temples, pyramids and monoliths were created and utilized way earlier than traditional historical records proclaim. This information around the true depths of our history is something that is finally coming into the mainstream. We can see examples of this in things like Graham Hancock now appearing on Netflix along with many others who have managed to have this new information break through traditional barriers.
Mohammed continues to share that all the temples had huge spiritual power, which is not activated now. We are told this power is ready to return as humanity rises in consciousness, embracing its divine purpose on the planet. You may recall from my earlier posts that the number one mission of this trip is to support the reactivation of the temples!
Only the High Priests were allowed into the center of this massive complex at Karnak They were the spiritual leaders and rulers of the community. There was an ‘order of things within the Temple complex, designating which areas people were authorized to enter, depending on their level of spiritual advancement. Common people would not be able to handle and hold the energies of the Inner Sanctuary. This vast temple complex also served as a treasury, administration center, and palace for the New Kingdom Pharaohs.
Egyptians would come to this major spiritual center for deep spiritual training, as well as connecting with Deities and the high councils that all supported the success and evolution of Egypt. The society around Karnak developed and grew from a foundation of higher spiritual knowledge. Karnak is connected to the Temple Luxor by a road on which hundreds of ram statues flank both sides. Can you imagine what it must have been like during the Festivals, the High Rituals, the Pageants, and Sacred Ceremonies?
The Karnak temple complex is totally spectacular. Its grandeur is something that modern industry could not build today. They used huge slabs of Rose Granite throughout the temple, which came from Aswan many hundreds of miles away. They used that stone because it has a larger percentage of crystal than any other stone in the world. We know that crystal is a conductor and activator of healing, energy and spiritual power. This reflects back to what I have been sharing: the temples were designed to hold and activate advanced spiritual energy for evolution and to assist in connecting with the divine, the deities and higher dimensional beings/gods.
From what we can now tell, there had been over 24 enormous obelisks decorated with sacred stories and symbols throughout the complex, along with 132 huge columns. The word obelisk actually means needle, which are obviously pointing to the sky. Potentially during their time, they served as antennas to the other realms. Throughout the ages, humanity has tried to move them and have not been very successful. You will find them broken down within the complex, and now only two are still standing.
This demonstrates how our modern society can’t even transport the obelisks now. So the huge question is, how was the granite rock transported hundreds of miles? How were these obelisks then created to stand tall with sacred symbols carved of such precision and beauty? Again, this points to advanced technology that was potentially received from the gods—technologies that we have yet to fully discover or receive.
One of the more fascinating sacred areas that I had not seen before is the Seven Gates. This is a spiritual area in the complex that has seven different rooms representing seven states of consciousness. These states are symbolized by seven Ankhs, and include the Tree of Life. Each successive gate offered a portal to a higher state of consciousness for the initiate to learn/earn to cultivate. They would continue to be initiated, gate by gate.
Another incredibly special place is the Temple of Sekmet. Sekmet is the lion goddess standing for Courage and Feminine Power as well as a warrior for Truth and Justice. The last time I was in Karnak I spent time in her Temple. As I stood in front of her I had a direct energetic transmission into my solar plexus which almost knocked me over. But I grounded and received her energy. When I left I took a picture of her, which later revealed a bright red circle of light at her solar plexus, which is where I felt the energy from her come from. You can see it in the blog of my previous trip to Egypt at https://transformationparadigm.com/egypt.
Now I am really excited, because our next stop is Dendera, at the Temple of Hathor!
P.S. I will also be posting these Egypt reports and photos of our mystical journey on my profile on Facebook and Instagram.
