Our group was on the way to the Temple Of Hatshepsut. What was unusual here was the fact this pharaoh was a woman. I reviewed some of the family lineage of hatshepsut which makes our modern extended family look simple comparable.

Hatshepsut was a pharaoh of 18th Dynasty. She was the oldest daughter of King Thutmose I. She married her half brother Thutmose II. Her older brothers, who were heirs to the throne, died pre-maturely, leaving her husband Thutmose in a position to become king. When Thutmose II died this left Hatshepsut in the position to rule. Even though Hatshepsut husband had a child from one of his concubines, Thutmose III, the child was too young to rule and lived under his aunt’s reign for twenty years.

Hatshepsut had been given several titles such as King’s Daughter, King’s Sister, God’s Wife and King’s Great Wife, but she was an ambitious woman and eventually she proclaimed herself Pharaoh. She was known to wearing a false beard and the clothing of the Kings. Her reign was relatively peaceful. She concentrated more on trading with her neighbors then making war.

Once Hatshepsut had proclaimed herself Pharaoh she began the building of her tomb. Our group piled out of the bus to find ourselves in front of a magnificent 97 feet tall rock cliff that the Temple of Hatshepsut had been built in front of.

Debbie Johnson, one of the coordinators, began to point out Egyptian Deities that were natural rock forms carved out by nature’s elements of wind, rain, sand storms and the beating of the Egyptian sun, found within the cliff. She had written a book where she shares some of her findings, called Nature of Reality and Divine Principles – an Alternative Interpretation of Egypt found on Amazon.com.

Debbie’s work was parallel with some of my own work in researching ley-lines both in Mt. Shasta, Asia and Europe. This rock cliff that I was looking at with the many faces of Egyptian Gods appearing on its surface was the main Ley-line of the land. I had seen similar images before in other sacred sites but nature here took the forms of the local Gods.

These ley-lines, also known as Dragon-lines in China, are the electric magnetic grids of the Earth. This grid is found all over the world at many temple sites. The tombs of the kings were also built upon such power-points. You can see examples of this in Europe were the ancient cathedrals now stand, whose foundations were the ancient Roman temples. Also the standing stones of Europe were placed upon such grids. Some of these standing stones were tomb sites for Tribal Kings. These electromagnetic energies of the Dragon-lines distributed the fertility into the land. The ancients were well aware of such things and utilized this Natural Earth Power for both ceremonies, dance and initiation.

The Temple of Hatshepsut laid before us with a royal walk way with many layered terraces on both sides. The terraces were once gardens, one could only imagine the beauty that once was there.

A woman, named Kim began to talk to me about how she felt every time we came to a temple, “My feet want to dance,” she said. Our group slowly ascended up the stairs. Alok and myself took a slow pace as we made the climb. Once we got to the temple the urge to find Kim came over me. we needed to dance.

Most of the crowds had cleared out of the court yard of the temple. I took her and and we began to dance. The movements were easy, like the gentle wind that moved through the open space. Some of the local men who watched over the Temple cheered us on as we swirled, swaying hips and arms The moment was perfect and we allowed our feet to do what they had been yearning to do: Dance with the Sacred.

I turned the corner and their was friend doing his chi-gong and the dance became contagious and now he had joined moving his feet for the sheer pleasure of the dance. The wind, the elements, all rejoiced in the Dance. We glided back down the long stairway, feeling like our feet were gliding down silk. People of all colors and from all countries passed us by as they went up the stairs. It had been a perfect dayT
