Sekhem Heka is published in book form through Megalithica Books, and imprint of Immanion Press, in May 2008.
Here is an overview of some
of the system's components.
In Ancient Egypt, sekhem literally meant power or might. The term applied to gods and goddesses and was often
part of the titles of pharaohs and queens. The sekhem sceptre
carried by rulers and important officials was a physical representation of their earthly power. In recent years,
the word sekhem has been reinterpreted to mean the energy of a
healing system named after it, but that meaning is of modern not ancient origin. Sekhem, in its modern sense, is
a form of healing that derives from a system called Seichim,
which itself is partly a derivative of Reiki. Originally, the word heka meant magic or magical power, and it
was also the name of a god who presided over magic.
This system of healing and self-development derives from Storm's experience in the healing systems Reiki and
Seichim and also in magical practices inspired by Ancient Egypt.
Sekhem Heka is a system that incorporates energy healing as well as a structured series of rituals and path workings,
focusing upon the energy centers of the body and associated
Egyptian god forms. Storm formulated the system for a number of reasons. Primarily, she has a great interest in the
goddess Sekhmet as do I and other Egyptian god forms, and have
worked with their energy for many years. Once Storm became a Reiki Teacher, and discovered Seichim/Sekhem, she was
pleased to discover that some Teachers had combined energy healing
with Egyptian symbolism, and was keen to go down that path herself. Secondly, as Reiki initiation paves the way for
self development,storm wanted to provide a system for her students
whereby they could combine their studies.
You do not have to be attuned to Reiki or Seichim to be able to use most of the Sekhem Heka system but for
those unfamiliar with the term, an attunement is a short procedure, performed
by a Teacher who has taken the highest, often called Master, degree of an energy healing system. Attunements are
the core of the majority of healing models based on Reiki and
its derivatives, during which a person becomes enabled to channel universal life energy (chi or ki) through their
body. Thus, the energy they utilize is not their own; it is universal
energy channeled through them. It neither exhausts nor depletes you as you work with it. Anybody, whether they have
been attuned to an energy healing system or not, can perform the
meditations and rituals of this system and acquire the benefits from them.
The Origins of Seichim/Sekhem:
In the early 1980's an american gentleman named Patrick Zeigler underwent a spontaneous attunement while in
Egypt which occured within the great pyramid of Giza. It was an experience
similar to that of Master Mikao Usui when he first acquired the ability to channel Reiki. Eventually, and some
time later after having taken his Reiki training, Patrick formulated a
method in which he was able to pass on the same energies that he himself had received.
Over the years, as Reiki initiates learned how to work with Seichim, the two systems became fused, and now there
are many crossovers between them, not least that Seichim attunement
involves the use of Reiki symbols. (This is presumably because Patrick Zeigler used adapted Reiki attunements when
formulating his initial Seichim system). Although Seichim and Reiki
are mostly regarded as separate systems, channelling different energy rays, storm does not think the two can be
separated, for the simple reason of the shared symbols. If Seichim
attunements were performed without any recourse to Reiki methods, then that might not be the case, but they are,
and this cannot be overlooked.
As with Reiki, many different branches of Seichim sprang up, and one of these was Sekhem. Although this was a term
originally used by Patrick Zeigler, who has experimented with various
different names for his system, it has been adopted by other Teachers, some of whom have greatly added to or changed
the system. Sekhem, typically, incorporates the Egyptian goddess,
Sekhmet, who was a ferocious lioness deity in ancient times, but who also had a healing aspect. Sekhmets priests were
also physicians, so it is easy to see how this goddess fits neatly
into the Sekhem healing system. It is Storms strong belief that any experienced practitioner can connect to Sekhem Heka,
through regular meditation and openness to its manifestation.
If you already regularly meditate or perform spiritual rituals, it should come easily. If you have taken Teacher degree
Reiki or Seichim, the practices will undoubtedly feel more familiar
to you, but to get positive results you simply need to want to experience them.
Shef - The Energy System of the Body
As with most other energy healing systems, Sekhem Heka works with the seven energy centres within the body, which
in this system are referred to as the shef the whole system
or shefats, the individual centres. These words derive from an Ancient Egyptian term that means power, energy, or vigour.
The energy centres are commonly known in most systems as the chakras, the idea of which derives from Ancient India.
The centres are visualised as spheres or lotuses of coloured light,
ranging through the spectrum from violet to red. The Correspondences of the Shefats There are seven degrees in
Sekhem Heka, and at each degree you will work with one of the seven
shefats, beginning with Sen t, the base shefat, which can be regarded as the seat of the animal self, survival
fears, the fight or flee response. Qemhu, the crown shefat, is regarded
as the highest, being connected with the higher self, spirituality and higher consciousness. Here is a brief
overview of the shef.
The Base Shefat- Sen-t (ground, basis, foundation) (sen-tay)
This shefat is fiery red in colour and is situated at the base of the spine. Its element is earth and it is
associated with the sense of smell. It also relates to the inner adrenal
system that controls the fight or flight response. Sen-t concerns survival fears, basic instincts, the animal
self, personal stability, matters of security.
The Lower Stomach or Sacral Shefat - Khept-ti (male and female genital organs) (kep-tee)
Khep-ti is situated above Sen-t, below the navel and relates to the sexual organs. Its colour is a radiant orange,
its element is water and it corresponds to the sense of taste. This centre is concerned with sexuality, sexual energy,
desire, feelings, creativity, pleasure, self confidence, and general well-being.
The Solar Plexus Shefat - Hati (will, disposition) (haa-tee)
Hati is located below the rib cage and relates to the digestive system and the pancreas. It is the shefat of the sun,
and it is thought that the body absorbs solar light through it.
Therefore, it can be seen as your personal sun, the seat of your personal power. In colour it is a vibrant golden
yellow, and its element is fire. It corresponds to the sense of sight
and relates to will power, personal power, complex emotions, perseverance and determination. Here is born the ability
to project the personality and affect your reality.
The Heart Shefat - Ab (heart)
Ab is the centre of the body; three above, three below. It is located in the chest and relates to the thymus gland,
which regulates the lymphatic system. Its colour is green, the
colour of healing, and it relates to the element of air and the sense of touch.
The Throat Shefat - Ashash-t (throat, gullet) (aah-shash-tay)
Ashash t is situated in the throat and relates to the thyroid gland and metabolism. Its colour is blue and its element
is ether. It relates to the sense of hearing.
The Third Eye Shefat - - Aar-t (a goddess of the uraeus) (aah-tay)
Aar-t and Qemhu (the Crown) form the two highest centres of the energy body. Both can be said to be the seat of the
third eye, but it is probably best to imagine them as a
whole with regards to this function. Aar-t is situated in the middle of the forehead, above and between the eyes. It relates to the pituitary gland and extra-sensory perception.
Its colour is indigo.
The Crown Shefat - Qemhu (crown of the head) (Kem-oo)
Qemhu is located in the centre of the head, although the shefat is often visualised as existing just above
the crown, outside the body. Its colour is generally seen as violet,
although it is also pure white light, the entire spectrum. It corresponds to the pineal gland. This centre relates
to the seat of your consciousness, the higher self. It is the
shefat of empathy and true bliss through understanding. In Qemhu all the aspects of the lower shefats are united.
It is their source of energy.
