Evolving with Sekhem

The ancient Egyptian hands-on energy of Sekhem, which in early Egypt did not relate directly to healing but rather to a higher state of consciousness and was only taught and practised in temples by high priests in a spiritual way, may have profound transformational effects.

Brief History

There are many references to Sekhem as a hands-on healing system on the walls of the very early temples and pyramids.  Scrolls found in these ruins, researched and translated by anthropologists, such as Wallis Budge, suggest this healing system pre-dates Reiki, even though the latter was the first to emerge in the West.

The word Sekhem itself means 'might and power' for it is related to, and acts directly on, the individual’s soul frequency. Mythologically, Sekhem was associated with Sekhmet, the lion-headed goddess of destruction and regeneration; one who destroys all that no longer serves us, so that we can build on a new foundation. Seen as the patroness of war and healing sciences, Sekhmet was the guardian of this energy and also protector against evil. 

(Further evidence of her protective power came to light earlier this year when archaeologists unearthed 66 well-preserved statues of Sekhmet near Luxor that were buried to ward off evil from the temple of pharaoh Amenhotep III. It is also believed that 700 such statues once stood at this temple on the west bank of the Nile to protect it from danger.)[1]

Although historically associated with a goddess, Sekhem is not a religious energy but rather one of pure unconditional love that always works to one’s highest will and good. Because of this and the high frequency it vibrates at, the energy cannot be forced or imposed upon anyone.


Power of Sekhem

When receiving or working with Sekhem, the energy can support whatever changes you want to make within yourself - including breaking patterns that may be holding you back from moving forward and living a fuller life. It assists you to take responsibility for your development in every aspect of your life, be it at the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level of your being and gives you the strength and courage to make the changes you want to, if you are ready and willing to work with it.  

When it comes to issues of health, most physical conditions, as we know, are triggered by unresolved emotions and/or limiting thought and belief patterns. The high vibration of Sekhem can help shed light on these issues (which are often deep-set) by bringing them to your awareness so that you can deal with them with more clarity (if you are willing to act on your inner knowing and wisdom). Like intuition, Sekhem operates beyond time and space right down to the core of our belief systems at the soul level.

Although it is believed to be the origins of all hands-on healing systems, it wasn’t until the 1980s that Sekhem was re-introduced into modern times, to suit the conditions of life today, by Helen Belot, a qualified nurse working in the medical profession as an Occupational Health Therapist at the time. An Australian, with many past life recollections as a High Priestess and a life-long interest in energy and esoteric work, Helen has been quoted as saying that Sekhem is an on-going and developing system and not static or totally complete as yet and that the “the concept of Sekhem is based on the fundamental Laws of the Universe. As the mass consciousness rises and people have a greater understanding of these laws, the Sekhem energy will grow and remain in advance of the current thinking’’.[2] The energy also complements and assists with the ascension process mankind has been experiencing for some time now. 

When I first got into Sekhem, in 2000, I didn’t know what to expect (even though I was working with the Reiki energy at the time). It was the feedback from clients that made me realize the depths to which this energy can and does work. Many times I have been amazed at the synchronous ways clients who are meant to connect with this energy do so and they are generally people who are ready at some level for real change or keen to address certain issues.

When I first heard about Sekhem, and “how much more powerful it was than Reiki”, I questioned this claim, because as a Reiki practitioner at the time, I found it hard to believe there was another far more powerful. That was about 17 years ago, in Hong Kong, where I was living at the time, and where Sekhem was fast taking off and being practised by a growing number of energy healers there.

Eventually I was drawn, more out of curiosity, to experience this energy for myself and was surprised by how strongly I connected with it. Over time it also gave me clarity about my path in this life and the courage to walk it.

Having channelled and received both Sekhem and Reiki, I have found, that although both provide the healing that is needed to help our earth and population move forward, the Sekhem energy seems to access higher and deeper levels of both our physical and non-physical bodies and is all encompassing in that it is able to take our healing right down to the cellular level. This completeness also allows the energy to run through the Nervous System, Meridians, 7 generations (to heal past life issues), and work on our inner child. There are also specific techniques within this system that can be used to help break DNA patterns, overcome mental and emotional blocks, forgive and detach from unwanted / outlived situations and relationships and ease discomforts during pre- and post-surgery care following chemotherapy and radiation.

The proof I believe is always in the pudding as demonstrated by the cases described below, three of whom decided to learn Sekhem, initially for their own development, after experiencing the effects of the  healing sessions.

Sekhem Sessions

Every healing session is intention based and always set to the highest will and good of the client, so it is imperative that the client is comfortable with the formation of the intention when wanting to work through or overcome specific issues.  This intention is repeated (both by the client and practitioner) at some point during the session.

Like all other channelled energies Sekhem comes from Source...but what gives it that very distinctive vibrational pattern is its travel via the Sirian star system from where it flows down through  the practitioner right  into the centre of the Earth and then back up again and out through the practitioner’s hands. As the energy is constantly circulated in this way, the practitioner’s own energy never gets depleted. In Sekhem the energy is called in a concentrated way, to ensure its purity.

The energy is then transferred on to the client through both physical and non-physical touch and so covers all layers of the energy body in the process. The focus is very much on the energetic body as the Sekhem practice is all about tuning into the energy bodies for information and guidance and sensing what needs addressing at the emotional, mental, spiritual layers of the body to correct any imbalances there, that could also aid with any healing required in the physical body.

While channelling the energy, different practitioners pick up different things and in different ways. I sometimes receive messages for clients in the form of words or images. These messages either come from a loved one no longer in this world or from the client’s higher self (the all knowing self within all of us) to either help them understand their situation or confirm something that they need to know. Many times clients too have experiences during the session and some say they feel secure, comforted, relaxed... as it flows through them, sometimes quite powerfully.

I have seen this energy assist individuals in numerous ways, including learning to deal with painful childhood issues, cope better with people and situations, let go of pain and hurt, broaden their perspective and feel more inspired and motivated.


Peter M, a 60+ professional, suffers from painful eczema in his fingers and joints.  About a month ago the eczema on his thumb created a painful split.

“I was on a train to work with no access to my usual ointments. I started to get stressed, wondering how I was going to cope with the problem while working a 12-hours shift. Then I had the thought of using the Sekhem energy on my thumb. So while on the train I began channelling the energy to the affected area. That night I began to feel a pleasant sensation in my thumb and noticed that the split in my skin was beginning to heal. I was able to take a few minutes out of my schedule to use the energy again and by morning there was no discomfort to my thumb and the split was beginning to heal.  I was really impressed with the speed of the healing. Even though I still use prescribed medication for my condition, I now know that I have a reliable alternative if needed.”

This is just one of Peter’s many experiences since learning Sekhem. His decision to learn this energy system was not for professional purposes but more for his own self-healing and development.

Similarly, Waheeda, a part-time receptionist and mother of 2, was keen to learn how to use the energy to help her move forward in life and get out of the rut she felt she was falling into.  Sekhem, she says

“has helped me cope with day to day life. I feel more calm and in control of my emotions than I have in a very long time. This is the best thing that has happened to me’’.

For Elena, who deals with international corporations, it has also been life-changing.

I have found that it has helped me with answers when I have needed them most.  I feel the energy helps connect me to my higher consciousness and guides/guardian angels.  It has strengthened my intuition also.

I feel instantly clearer after healings.  Whatever has been worrying me, I feel clears.  I often get messages during a healing that helps me turn a situation around.  It has helped me to be a much calmer person and also to see that I am part of a bigger picture, which helps me to see life in perspective (especially my problems).  Since learning Sekhem I have worked on issues that plagued me all my life - such as lack of confidence in the workplace - and now I have turned those issues around and am in the place I want to be career wise.

Natalie, a middle-aged school teacher, was grieving the recent loss of her mum. She was in a lot of pain and felt physically and emotionally drained. She had never had any healing before but felt a need to shift her energy and agreed to try Sekhem (as I practice a few other therapies as well).  Within two sessions she was able to cope better. The sessions, she says,

took away a feeling of heaviness that I was carrying around and felt would never clear, I cannot describe the feeling it was just heavy.  The healing sessions were powerful and helped me to process my feelings and emotions from my mum’s passing and to move on from the effects that it was having on me physically. I can honestly say that these sessions were brilliant and I will be going back for follow up’’.

    Dear Lina
    I have read your article on Sekhem Healing and I would very much like to know more about how it works, as I am a Crystal Healer and Meditation Teacher. I do suffer myself with Fibromyalgia and I am in a considerable amount of pain each day and I feel that Sekhem Healing could be beneficial for me. I have a very strong connection with ancient Egypt and tend to practice using my crystals the old way with light as they would have done thousands of years ago. I would also like to purchase the book The Story of Sekhem by Helen Belot please could you tell me how I can order it. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

    Best Wishes

    Rhea Miles.
