About the Ancient Egyptian Mantra Initiation
To help you in understanding what the Khu school is about, you can receive-right now through your computer screen-an initiation that empowers you to use an ancient Egyptian mantra. If you are undecided about whether to receive the initiation, you can still receive some benefit just by being in the presence of the spiritual energy that emanates from the image on your screen.
After you receive the initiation, repeating the mantra below will activate a shakti (spiritual energy) that facilitates the process of personality-soul fusion, i.e. the union of the personality and the soul. For further information about personality-soul fusion, see How Can Ancient Egyptian Soul Teachings Help You? and Overview of Khu, The Egyptian Mystery School". Note: Receiving this initiation does not empower you to give it to others.
HOW TO DO THE MEDITATION
The meditation uses the mantra "ankh ba". This mantra can be translated "The soul lives", meaning that the soul is a living reality that we are meant to experience here on earth, thereby bringing feelings of profound joy, aliveness and love into our daily life.
More information on this mantra and its pronunciation are noted below. To do the meditation, repeat the mantra "ankh ba" (either out loud or mentally) while simultaneously focusing your attention on the point midway between your eyebrows.
If you can sense the chakra in this area, you will get somewhat better results by focusing on the chakra itself-however, it is enough to focus your attention on the surface of the skin midway between the eyebrows. If your attention wanders from either the mantra or the between-the-eyebrows point, then gently bring it back.
The emphasis is on refocusing your attention, not trying to drive out other thoughts. Although the image of the ankh on the computer screen carries the energy of the empowering initiation, it is not part of the ankh ba meditation itself. The meditation does not require visualizing an ankh or being in front of the computer screen.
To get the best results from this meditation, it is recommended that you do it at least 3 times per week. It is also suggested that you meditate for at least 20 minutes per time. Most people reach a point of diminishing returns after about 45 minutes, however it is safe to do the meditation for as long as you want because the energies that the meditation brings in will temporarily shut off if you start to overcharge yourself.
NOTE: The ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol taking the form of a T-shape surmounted by a loop. The ankh has multiple meanings, including eternal life. It is also the word for physical life. The word "ba" had somewhat different meanings in different ancient Egyptian schools; here it is best translated as "soul".
It is through the soul that we have eternal life and even physical life, for without the soul the body is just lifeless clay. Here's a guide to pronouncing the phrase "ankh ba": In the word "ankh" the letter "a" is pronounced like the "a" in "hat", the "n" is pronounced like the "n" in "ring", the "kh" is pronounced like the "k" in "bake". In the word "ba", the "b" is pronounced like the "b" in "bed" and the "a" is pronounced like the "a" in "car".
