THE SEICHIM AND SEKHEM
Seichim and Sekhem story starts in Egypt
with the visit of an American by the name of Patrick Zeigler to Egypt.
Patrick had always felt drawn to Egypt when he was living in the United States.
As a young man, he had trained as an architect and started to use the
geometric structures of the Egyptian pyramids in his architectural work.
Geometry is a structural channel through which energy can be focused and through
which it can manifest in physical form.
Whilst working in Yemen,
Patrick went to Egypt
for a holiday. He visited the Great Pyramid at Giza and decided
to stay within the pyramid overnight when it had closed to the public. Whilst
there in the King’s Chamber, he experienced a living energy coming into the
Chamber and after overcoming his anxiety about what was happening he let the
energy into his energy field and into his heart centre. The energy was very
beautiful and brought a strong love vibration into his heart. Patrick spent
some time that night meditating with the energy in his heart and learning to
hold the energy in his heart centre. One of his strongest memories of the
energy was that it was moving in figures of eight (or the infinity pattern)
as it came into the Kings Chamber and into him.
Initiations to energies do not always have to come
through a physical intermediary and Patrick received an initiation whilst he
was in the Kings Chamber.
Patrick started to work with this energy over the
next few days after he had left the Great Pyramid. Whilst in Yemen,
Patrick had tried to connect with Sufis as part of the spiritual journey that
he was on. He found a school for Sufis in Cairo in the days following his experience
in the Kings Chamber. He found the Sufis working with heart based energy in a
way similar to that which he had experienced in the Great Pyramid, and
dancing in spirals with the figure of eight pattern to call the energy in.
Patrick worked with the energy in the way that the Sufis did for about a
week, and started to have visions. He decided to go to the Sudan to find the Master who had
taught the people in the Sufi school, and received direct teaching from the
When Patrick returned to Yemen, the energy which he had
experienced in the Great Pyramid kept returning to him, and he started to
work with it. He later moved on to Nepal. He had many profound
experiences with the energy, and experienced it healing him.
At this stage, Patrick knew little about healing
but felt that he had to know more about it. So he enrolled at the New Mexico Academy
of Healing Arts and
studied massage and energy healing there.
After he had received Reiki healing for the first
time, Patrick decided to learn Reiki and became a Reiki Master. He started to
teach Reiki, but also wanted to teach about and to pass on the energy from Egypt.
It came about that Patrick was able to consult a lady called Christine Gerber
who channelled a being called Marat who had worked
with Patrick’s energy in Southern India about two and a half thousand years
ago. Marat advised that the energy was called
something like Seichim. Marat also gave
instructions on how to pass a very simple attunement into Seichim.
After a number of attempts to pass on the Seichim
energy, Patrick was able to initiate Christine successfully into the energy.
The next person to be initiated was one of Patrick’s Reiki students, by the
name of T’Om (Tom Seaman).
taught the Seichim to one of his spiritual teachers who then taught it to a
lady called Phoenix
Summerfield. Phoenix did a lot of work with the energy together with T’Om,
and slowly additional symbols came through. Phoenix did a great deal to give
the Seichim practice and teaching form and structure, and to get it out into
the wider world, and the numbers of people who could work with this energy
started to grow.
moved to Hawaii,
where she continued to practice and to teach Seichim. At this stage, Reiki
and Seichim were being taught together in combined attunements.
Helen Belôt learned Seichim initially from Margo Slater. She received the
Seichim Masters Level training from Phoenix
Summerfield. Around this time, Helen Belot says that she had started to
channel a third energy which was different to the Reiki and Seichim which had
come down from Patrick. She worked with Phoenix
on this energy when she was learning with Phoenix. As Helen continued to work with
this energy after Phoenix’s death and developed a teaching structure for it,
she used the name Sekhem for it and used the name Seichim only for the energy
that had come down from Patrick that he had experienced in the Great Pyramid.
In her early teaching days, Helen developed a training structure in which she
taught Sekhem, Seichim and Reiki in the same course and in which she
initiated students into these energies.
Helen advised publicly in
late 2007 that she would cease teaching Sekhem.
