In Egypt, I embraced Jim Morrison’s Quote, Did you have a good world when you died? -enough to base a movie on? Egypt opened me up to a buffet of teachers such as archeologists, learning to read hieroglyphics in vertical and horizontal patterns and postures of power. But, by far, the Sinai Peninsula was the most enriching ethnobotanical journey I experienced, consuming over 40 species of plants in 4o days; powerful hash journeys in the deserts, secret Bedouin initiations, and ancient tantric rituals. But before I begin a short story to why I ventured to Egypt. At the top of my game, I was a famous Spiritual healer and the center of attention in many esoteric and metaphysical circles. I was offering akashic readings and various healing modalities. People from all over the world were flying to Toronto to visit. After every event, workshop or lecture, loads of attractive young women were looking to speak with me and spend time. My worst fear was that I would turn into a spiritual playboy, but I was mature enough to understand when a man is in high positions of power; walking promiscuous pathways would vibrate the wrong message. Furthermore, many sexual partners' lifestyle weakens the immune system and depletes hormonal levels, leading to the body's ageing. Because of this, I will always choose one woman and sacrifice the playboy lifestyle. Andrea was stunning, a blond bombshell, talented singer and performer; we achieved great success in our careers and grew spiritually. However, she would leave Toronto to travel to Australia; because of this, it would not be possible to maintain the healing centre on my own as a single spiritual man. So, I left for Egypt to get answers.
I arrived at a small hostel that I found on the internet In Cairo; it was very close to the Egyptian museum. I became friends with the owner right away; she was very curious about why I was in Egypt and fond of my esoteric knowledge. This woman set me up; she fed me and ensured I would get a front-row seat for my research. So, she graciously offered to take me out at night after work, get accustomed to the food and culture, and introduces me to key people. I received private tours to museums and visited secluded archeological sites that were not open to the public. One of the hotel owner's associates from the museum taught me how to read hieroglyphics; she was very skilled. When I studied her method in practice, I was fortunate to see Egypt with lush gardens full of food; the Nile was a flourishing river with fish and agriculture; they would transport stone on boats up the river to build temples and pyramids. Several Images conveyed ancient medicine practices and advanced technologies. The archeologist pointed out images etched in temple walls of massive generators we call pyramids that powered ancient Egypt and stored agriculture. Many of these Generators are buried in deserts; she said it would take 100 years to unearth them all. Finally, it became official, the archeologist activated and aligned me to Egyptology. After 2 weeks in Cairo, I planned my next destination with my teachers' guidance. I ventured to the valley of kings and Queens. I was missing Andrea, sad over the breakup and leaving my practice back in Toronto. I would have no choice but to evolve; lucky for me, these beautiful women treated me as an Egyptian king and soothed my heart. The Valley of the Kings and Queens was indeed a magical resting place; the valley of queens was where the wives of pharaohs were buried, known as "the place of beauty." The kings' valley was where the pharaohs and powerful nobles were buried, known as the Gates of the Kings. I experienced a more in-depth look into the stonework of the sarcophagus. They used limestone and other rocks; they favoured black, gray and red granite from Aswan, a city in Egypt. One of the archeologists I was studying with allowed me to lay in one of the sarcophagi; what a trip. I felt energized and strong, ready for the following location. The Karnak and Luxor temples would reveal a deeper understanding of Egyptology and secret societies coded into hieroglyphics. I studied body positions and stances such as left foot to right root extensions, hand, arm placement, and anatomy's energetic components. In all fairness, I was tipped off about these postures before I left for Egypt. A friend of mine was studying these well before my discovery, but I did the fieldwork. Now I would get the opportunity to educate the archeologist. The stances were ancient meditation, active movement techniques, like Qigong, Yoga, or Vedic Mudras. All over the world, depending on geographic location, climate and religious beliefs, a system of Mobility was established. Postures and geometry harmonically attune the body with different frequencies emitting from the Earth. Thus, our body can be seen as a lightning rod (spine). The stronger the spine is, the more information our neurological system can assimilate (afferent feedback), applying energetic and physical pressure to muscle flow.
A small crowd of tourists began to gather as I spoke; some archeologists waved to co-workers and tour guide operators to listen in on the conversation. I explained to the people who joined the discussion that there have always been two posture states, Active or Passive. Like this statute of this Pharo, passive posture is shown here when the body naturally assumes a position with ease. As soon as the body experience’s end ranges of motion, it becomes active. The other statue here is the dynamic stance that controls muscles actively. Most of these figures represented specific secrets of achieving a particular position or spiritual connection, energetically and physically balancing the operating system we call the body. For example, muscles need oxygen; otherwise, they lead to cramps, spasms, knots and lactic acid build-up. Thus resulting in hunch forward, lessening expansion in the chest, and causing weak lung inflation. Nevertheless, the crowd was impressed, and people were coming over to ask what I was doing. It felt natural and empowering to assimilate this ancient body system on the grounds it was created. At another time, I was asked to host an Egyptian movement class in the white desert, known as Crystal Mountain. To make a long story short, I accomplished this with a group of 30 people. We smoked some Egyptian hash at sunset and spent the night under the stars with dessert hyenas nibbling at my toes, stealing my shoes.
I took the trip to the Philae Isis temple on my own. I had no idea of what I was about to experience; I only saw pictures from a brochure. As I walked through the temple, I enjoyed all the statues and hieroglyphics, but they all started to look the same after months of research. Then, I veered off the tourist's path. It was blocked off, but I was not aware of the sign and walked past it. Boom, this room felt like a comet with streaming consciousness. I fell to my knees and looked up at the image of baby hours on the lap of Isis, with tears down my face. My body trembled as the scenes on the wall unlocked my imagination. I was transported to Ancient Egypt. I felt like Horus and experienced his life from start to finish, a massive download assimilating such power into the Aura. Suddenly, a man walked in with a machine gun, put me up against the wall and told me I was trespassing, communicating with broken English; he asked what I was experiencing and why I was in here. I told him I was lost; he said, liar. Then, he began to frisk me most unusually; he was getting pleasure with touching me. Eventually some other security came in the room, I was released and left the temple.
I decided to seek a more meditative and solitary environment; I was tired of the driving and wanted to relax for the remainder of my trip. Now, to Mount Sinai during a torrential rainstorm, the Nile was flooding back in the city and hotels were inundated with water. In addition, a massive landslide closed the road into the Sinai Region. I was lucky to arrive at my hotel and waited for the rains to stop. Sure enough, the next day, I would venture out. The locals seemed nice and pointed me in the direction of a coffee space where some of the English-speaking tourists and operators hung out. I met a woman who called herself an Egyptian tantric practitioner. She showed me hieroglyphics on photocopied papers of ancient rituals or what she called Ancient Ankhing. She explained that Ankhing is a system of sexuality connected to the Universal Heart Chakra or 5th-dimensional consciousness. I replied that I studied and practiced some of these rituals with the Mayans. The Mayan philosophy was rooted in earth connection and utilizing sexual transmutation to send the energy to Pachamama. The idea of ankhing was similar to the Mayan system in Mexico. For example, when I received an erection, I would sit naked on the earth and pull the energy up and down in horizontal patterns. When done, I was so rooted in the ground that it was challenging to push me; I became a magnet unable to move. After sipping her tea, the woman explained more; she said the adepts used these ancient sexual rituals here in Egypt before entering unique temples and chambers to ascend to higher consciousness levels. Finally, after an hour or so of sexual philosophy, she expressed the desire to open my Ka. Now she had my attention because I had never heard of Ka before. Ka is the life force with two realities attached; the 1st is the collective and the source of rejuvenation or vital life source. The 2nd is the individual linked to our personal characteristics such as prosperity and health. Long story short, the Tantric Women demonstrated the Egyptian practice through massage, and it had a very similar experience to Mexico. The next day, she would go back to Cairo but first introduced me to a group of Europeans living in the region who showed me where the plant doctor lived. But first, a local heard I was seeking plant medicine; he spoke very little English; he described himself as a desert dweller and a keeper of ancient holy plants. This man conveyed that he had visions of me arriving at Sinai with a thunderstorm and bringing much-needed rain for the region. His gift to me was a drink with "the Divine," he gave me a small amount (Shot Glass) and told me to dress warm and walk the mountains. Unfortunately, he would not share with me the composition of the Grand Elixir. Still, I remembered the conversation I had with Dennis Mekkana; we spent some time in the jungles of Peru; I explained to Dennis that after Peru, I would be leaving for Egypt. He told me to keep my mouth open to the burning bush. It was a riddle for me to figure out, and Dennis would laugh and say, you will be a lucky man to find the bush.
I would journey up to Moses Mountain to feel sick and cold, the desert is hot during the day, but it would get damp in the hills at night. At first, I was worried because I had taken medicine from a stranger. But, It was not the first time I had drank substances I knew nothing about. I started to get a chest cold, and at one point, I slipped and fell ended up hitting my head. I lay on the ground beside stones that looked like an ancient foundation to a home. I was trembling, dizzy and drifted off, wondering if I was going to die. Then, suddenly, I heard a voice. It's Elijah; wake up, you found my house. I opened my eyes and said, get lost. I don't have time for Hallucinations. I am very sick; my head hurts, all of a sudden again he spoke its elijahhhhh his name became a distorted fractal. The medicine would begin to make it evident to me. All I saw were angels carrying many plants in their hands, ascending and descending on DNA strains sounding trumpets, and chanting. Finally, I came to, and Elijah spoke again; he told me to get up and walk back down, go no further if I continue to climb, I will die; he explained that someone would bring a plant to drink at the hotel, but drink it slowly with respect. I awoke the next day; even sicker, I was constipated, and my lungs filled water. Now, I became septic, which was very dangerous if the body was not releasing the illness. The hotel owners wanted to take me to the hospital. I explained that I must wait and did not want to go; the owner was upset because he did not want to be responsible for my demise. I was offered a bit of opium; it is used for lung infections from damp nights in small doses. I declined and walked out to the front of the hotel. I was lying on the ground in the hot sun, barely able to breathe in much pain. Finally, I decided to surrender to death. I welcomed it closed my eyes, and recited a native proverb to celebrate the end in courage with a healthy heart. All of a sudden, a man walked by. He was wearing an Egyptian garment covered from head to toe; I only saw his eyes and heard his voice as he dropped a bag of herbs beside my body. He said an Egyptian word that sounded like Aswan. He spoke English and said it’s a plant that kills infections, a natural antibiotic and walked away. I remembered the voice of Elijah to drink it slowly in gratitude. I went back to my hotel and did as instructed. It was a bitter flavour and a deep yellow. I drank one cup fell asleep. Believe it or not, the next day, I felt rejuvenated, almost like I was never sick, drank another cup and slept for the day. On the second day, I was up and moving around reborn the hotel owner gave me directions to the plant doctor, and I left the hotel to search for him. I proceeded into a garden. All vegetables and herbs were planted in a medium of small pebbles and crystal; no soil. There were tiny houses and one more substantial in size. A man walked out and introduced himself; he spoke English. He was a doctor and Bedouin; his specialty was documenting and growing the medicine in the region. He took me under his wing to teach me about all the plants, picking, brewing into tea, and locating different species that grew in the wild. My days were filled, following him around learning as much as I could. The Bedouin was very hospitable; he fed me traditional food cooked in the desert, drank medicinal teas, took me into villages and introduced me to the elders. Eventually, he found me a home below Moses Mountain. I stayed for 40 days fasting, picked and drank over 40 species of medicinal plants. The house was filled with herbs; I tied and hung them from the ceilings to dry. Also, I researched and documented the detox I experienced in my joints and muscles from the consumption. First, I looked through my feces to locate parasites and mucus formations expelled from the body's organs. Then I walked up and down the mountains carrying trash and litter that tourists and locals would leave behind. I did this to show my respect to the plants as I would pick them (never uprooted). Second, I drew images of the Herbs on paper and glued samples of the plant with written conclusions. Weeks went by, and eventually, locals and tourists heard about me. They would show up for energetic healing attunements and wanted to learn about the Herbs; my days became busy with people, and my teacher was very impressed. Finally, my teacher invited a doctor from Cairo; the doctor said I was correct with my research. My time in Egypt was coming to an end. A man from the European Union came to visit me and told me the locals were getting angry with all the education I offered. He explained that these plants have been hidden from many people for a long time, exposing the herbs and healing properties is not the best thing to do in this situation. In addition, the Europeans conveyed rumours of revolution and profound political changes in Egypt. He told me to leave the country right away, and I did. He put me on a shuttle bus back to Cairo, and I was on the plane back home to Canada.
