Shamza and Hamza were born twins. Shamza was first by 1 minute. She was a very bright and aware since her time of birth. Her own mother had described her as spiritual and moved to the rhythm of the annunaqui. She did not cry when she entered this life. Her brother Hamza had screamed to the top of his lungs the moment he hit the cold of this atmosphere. He seemingly was fighting to return back to whence he came and was very discontented.
As they grew older, there mother’s brother, Uncle Hamud became closest to Hamza. Hamud had notice that Hamza needed more attention, because everyone else gave more of their attention to his sister Shamza. As twins the two siblings did have an attachment. Shamza always kept close to him even though his moods became too difficult for anyone else to understand or handle. One day the only other person that paid him the most attention, was Uncle Hamud. He was going away, far away. Uncle Hamud was a Scientist/archaeologist and loved exploring the unexplored regions in Africa where they live.
The children’s father Thutmose was also a scientist in agriculture. His love was Mother Earth and the wonderful things she does for people to survive. His second love was for his daughter Shamza for he truly believed she was an angel sent by the Most High. They worked closely together in growing and cultivating the rich soil they were blessed to have, which yield great vegetation. Their mother Hamiyda was an Educator in health and wellness, and she kept the family to following dietary laws. She practiced what she preached by sharing her wealth of knowledge with everyone living among them.
Hamza was so much like his Uncle Hamud. When he got into his moods he would retreat to his hiding places somewhere in there very large home and explored through the many books in their huge library that his father and uncle provided for the family. Uncle Hamud had not married, so he fathered no children. He felt that his life style would not keep him home long enough to give the attention a family needed. So his brother-in-laws family became his family.
After learning that Uncle Hamud was going to the desserts of Africa, Hamza became even more moody with everyone so he plunged himself into books and study. He wasn’t angry with his uncle for leaving he was upset that he could not go with him. Before he had made his long journey, his Uncle Hamud promised the twins Shamza and Hamza that he would return with something special for them. The twins were 7 years old when he left.
One night, three days before the arrival of their uncle, Shamza had a dream of a golden camel. She dreamed that it came to her and spoke. The camel told her that she and her brother will always be protected because her love for her brother was divine, and his love for her was universally connected. She shared her dream with her brother, and as soon as she told him the dream, he shouted with glee! “Uncle Hamud is coming back tomorrow!” Shamza smiled because she knew her brother was absolutely right.
It had been six years later when Uncle Hamud returned. The children were 13 years old. They were awaken by their mother’s voice so happy and excited, “Children come down your Uncle Hamud is home!” The twins were so excited they were knocking themselves over to be first to get through the door to greet their uncle. Their uncle was so happy to see them, and was amazed to how tall they had grown, and they were surprise to see that he had not change much, but only had grew a fuller beard. He asked them, “Do you remember when I had left I promised to bring you back something special?” They both bowed their heads in jester smiling from ear to ear. He said to them, “Come children and sit with me.”
They both moved toward him at the same time, pushing each other so they could sit next to him. Uncle laughed at their excitement and was thrilled to see how they were still so attached to each other. Uncle pulled a small black velvet box from his pocket. He opened it and inside was a golden pendant of a camel. Inside the camel’s hump was a very bright diamond, it’s sparkle had seven rays of facets. The children were in awe to its brilliance. It was such a tiny diamond that you would not know it was, but only by the brilliance of the stone. Uncle Hamud said, “I was given this beautiful jewel in Shamballah, from someone who had saved my life during my journey.” I am not going to tell you how my life was saved, but I do know by passing this golden camel to one of you it will always protect you. “Which one of you will take this jewel and wear it?”
The twins had no problem in choosing each other. Hamza spoke first without a doubt, “I want my sister to wear it, because she had a dream of a golden camel and shared her dream with me. She is the one to wear it.” Shamza said, “No my beloved brother, I am already protected, the angels of the Most High has always protected me from birth. The dream that I had was a warning that in the near future, this golden camel will save you from something.” Uncle immediately said, “That’s it, your sister will have her request. She have been blessed with the eyes of inner Sight and Intuition, let us respect her request. “Remember you came into this world 1 minute apart from each other, and 1 minute may be the time you may need to save each other with the help of the Golden Camel.
