Graphic depicts,The Book of the Dead, which is not about the dead, but the afterlife,
The entire civilization of Ancient Egypt was based on religion, and their beliefs were important to them. Their belief in the rebirth after death became their driving force behind their funeral practices.....(more on funeral 2nd part)

I've been having some incredible dreams lately and decided to do some investigating;-)part one

Seeking an oracle in
a time that is past
I visit the shrines
of the dead

I find letters of spells
from when Sun God Ra
descended into the
abyss to find Osiris
and to be reborn

Also found excerpts from
book of the dead
and notes of dreams
which are revelations of truth

I come upon a pyramid text
how the Kings prepared for dreams
Gods must be invoked

" Thoth I invoke, blessed power of dreams divine,
Angel of future fates, swift wings are thine,
Great source of oracles to human kind,
When stealing soft, and whispering to the mind,
Through sleep's sweet silence and
the gloom of night,
Thy power awake the sight,
To silent souls the will of heaven relates,
And silently reveals their future fates."

Intrigued I will continue to
journey into the dreamscape
of the ancients that I may
learn the future

You must have a connection to this culture, Eileen, as I have been told mine is to Persia. Utter fascination as I've read these writes.
Wonder stirs the possibilities within us and our place in the cosmos.
I told you the dreams would come eventually. Do dream on and wonder. Great write!

at times, knowledge from our past lifetimes or from the collective psyche manifests through our dreams ... i find the Egyptian's very intriguing since their philosophy embraced eternal life and preservation of the the body so ra (a duplicate body that accompanies the physical body throughout life) replaced the body in the afterlife but could not without the body ... that's why the Egyptians made effort effor to preserve the body ... very interesting concepts ...

your dream is well written and requests of Thoth both wisdom and learning ...

I know you will, Tiger Lily, and you do it very well.

PS That cavern near Lake Tahoe must have all sorts of hidden treasures in it!

Understanding and heeding our dreams can be an invaluable asset in our lives, Eileen. There is so much mystery associated with the Egyptians that I find it a fascinating topic. My brother was most intrigued by their culture and spent many years studying it before his death.
Take care,

Wonderful avenue for growth in your words. We all step back to go forward and without growth in this direction how do we learn from our mistakes? It's the smallest of details that we side step.

Beautiful lesson in prose.

Thought provoking questions, to find the meaning of dreams--I hope you find the answers you seek. Excellent write!

To help you seek knowledge of your dreams, you should consider ordering a hieroglyphic cartouche pendant that transcribes your name into Egyptian hieroglyphics, birthright of the pharoahs. Go to They also have neat items of different cultures. Kate Clifford has been having Egyptian dreams too. You two probably were acquaintances in ancient Egypt. Hope you learn some more about this, Eileen. It is intriguing.

How do we know so much about the ancient lives of the Egyptian people? True, we have statues and also artwork covering the walls of tombs. This gives us a pretty close idea of what ancient Egyptian lives were like. But the best picture comes from the words they wrote. The ancient Egyptians wrote down everything-from magic spells and curses to medical procedures and lists of food supplies given to the pyramid builders.

There must be something in the air... ;) I have been doing my own study on this subject as well. Thank you for sharing your visions with us.

I agree with Peter Paton. This journey is one path well worth walking...together :)

Ah, you are taking yourself on a mystical and fasination journey. I have delved into that culture, not much, but enough to know that it is both strange and fantastic.

I believe these dreams are part of a wider vision you are experiencing Eileen, and this fascinating series promises to divulge much inner wisdom and insight for your readers, including me !
I see this as the key passage " To silent souls the will of heaven relates,
And silently reveals their future fates."
Can't wait for Part 2
The wall hieroglyphic picture is astounding, I think I can see Osiris, Isis, Horus, Anubis, Set....
You rock Eileen...
