Hail, and welcome to the Sacred Sounds Egypt update for September 1, 2014.
In the ancient Egyptian calendar, we would now be in the middle of the month of Ptah, which spans what is mid-August to mid-September in our modern reckoning. Ptah was one of the primordial creator Neters whose thought and word brought the world into being. His blue skull cap shows that he is a sky being whose will brings ideas down from Heaven and into realization on Earth, and this is the very ancient meaning of the phrase “out of the blue,” which we still use for a spontaneous, intuitive insight that seems to come to us from the sky, and bring the answer to a problem that the mallet of the intellect has not yet been able to crack with its usual direct, linear force. We invoke his blessing now, when this month brings, in fact, as we’ll soon see, a superb window of creative opportunity that offers each and all of us a chance to envision and manifest the best that we can dream and intend. More on this in the month’s planetary dynamics at the Universal Festival Calendar.
Leslie Zehr and I send regular Sacred Sounds Egypt updates to those who are interested in hearing more about the sonic journey we’ll guide through mythic space, from the pyramids of Giza and Saqqara to the mystery sites of Dendera, Abydos, Luxor and Aswan and up to the summit of Mt. Sinai, from Feb. 19 through March 7.
