Today’s message comes from two glyphs: Nefer, the symbol of goodness and beauty, and Tyet, the hieroglyph that is a red sash tied into a knot, that represents childbirth. When you discover something beautiful that you had not noticed before, it is like having your eyes opened for the first time, like a new babe. Sometimes, this beauty is not something new at all, like a beautiful sunset, but the magnificence can overwhelm you with an inner joy. When you have such an experience, be sure to share it with others. At the very least, you can enter it into your journal or share a picture you take online. Remember what it is that has made your life the richer for experiencing it.
Two hieroglyphs combine to bring you the message that writing can help you to create a new outlook on your life. Seshew, the writing kit of the scribe, and Kheper, the scarab that symbolizes a new dawn, tell you that when you keep a journal, you will be able to see things differently when you look at events from an impersonal viewpoint. When you keep your emotions quieted, you can hear the voice of your own spirit telling you the best way to look at something that has happened. Instead of reacting to something, you will be able to choose your best way to go into the future.
Two hieroglyphs combine to let you know that where your joy is, there is your treasure also. Whatever brings you the most joy is beyond value. Happiness can’t be bought and joy cannot be forced to happen when you choose. So the message is to just relax! Let your happiness come and enjoy it to the fullest. The memories you will create are worth more than gold itself.
Was, the Ancient Egyptian scepter of spiritual power, joins with Sema, the hieroglyph for Unity, to tell you that spirituality joined with a heart for your community is a winning combination. Not only will you be a great gift and a builder of your world, but also you will gain great knowledge and spiritual gifts from all of the prayer and works that you do. We are not just encouraging you to partake of charitable efforts, but to make this a lifestyle. When you breathe and share with all around you the love and compassion that comes from the God of your understanding, you flood your neighborhood and more with the love that God has already placed there.
The Eye of Re (Udjat) combines with the Mnevis bull, the messenger to the gods, to tell you that your prayers and thoughts are being carefully watched by the God of your understanding. If you have no personal belief system or faith, the God which you do not know is still watching, as you are part of the great experiment that is the unfolding Creation. Why not take an active part and get to know the God that created the universe and ask for the part that you were created to take in this work? Blending your mind with the Divine Mind will give you a completely different perspective on life itself. May God’s blessing be upon you!
Min, the Ancient Egyptian fertility god, brings you the hieroglyph, Nebu, which stands for gold. When you work in the earth as a farmer, you may feel far away from the riches owned by those in the great cities. However, the cities would fail if there were no farmers to raise the crops to sustain the lives of people and their animals. So not all gold is made of metal. It is what you value most, and might seem to be the simple things in life.
Tyet, called the Buckle of Auset, and Aker, the horizon representing, time combine to tell you that time itself is another tool provided to you by the Creator. The Tyet is said to represent the woman’s ability to bear children – labor at it’s highest intensity. The Aker shows the sun rising between two mountains, thus being yesterday, today and tomorrow. When you know that time is a tool, not just a method to count the days passing, you will be able to master your life by setting goals and reaching them, one step at a time.
Two hieroglyphs together tell you that you will experience “heaven” as part of your life cycles. Iaru, the glyph of a papyrus thicket, suggested heaven to the Ancient Egyptian. It was cool by the side of the Nile, and the papyrus was full of wildlife, including sport and food for any who were skilled enough to hunt or fish. Ayehh shows the Moon in all of it’s cycles, while suggesting the dreamtime because the moon rules the night. Every life has many cycles in it, some dull and others exhilarating. As you pass through these cycles, never lose sight of Heaven. Although the Moon is not always visible, that does not mean that it is not there. Heaven, like the Moon, may not appear clearly to you now, but it is always there.
Two Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs combine today to bring you a message. The Udjat, called the eye of Re by some, represents investigation and creating from the aspect of “what you see is what you get.” The Menat, a rattle that can be worn as a necklace, represents the dance and the rhythms of life itself. Together they tell you to pay attention to the joy in your life. Do you have enough joy? Instead of trying to find it, making it more elusive than ever, share the joy that you already have with others. In this way, you will find that joy is magnified and multiplied. Be in joy!
Two hieroglyphs from Ancient Egypt bring you this message: Nesu Bit – the name for the divine king who was pharaoh – and Int – the pilot fish that escorted the barque of Re through the dangers of the darkness each night. When someone is given the responsibility for others, such as a king or the father of a household, there are many more dangers to face than when navigating through the perils of life alone. What the Int tells you to do is to look into unusual places: people you don’t know, people you may not agree with, or even turning to books and recordings of the lives of those who passed before you were born. All of these are resources you may not respect or seek for advice. When there is trouble brewing and you are responsible, especially when you are responsible for others, any resource which brings you good advice is precious indeed.
