The Power Of Sekhem
Even though some practitioners are of the opinion that Reiki and Seichim are the roots of energy healing, scrolls found in ancient Egyptian ruins suggest Sekhem pre-dates both Reiki and Seichim which are actually inherent within this greater system of Sekhem.
The power of Reiki, when it first surfaced, was in itself overwhelming. Even with the rise in consciousness over the years, it continues to serve its purpose and is still a very effective and necessary power of healing at the physical level of the mind, body and spirit. However, unlike Sekhem, it does not have the high vibrational frequency nor the intensity required to see us through the dark nights.
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.
Sekhem can work alongside any other traditional Western or Eastern therapy and is also a totally safe treatment for easing discomforts pre- and post-surgery, following chemotherapy and radiation, as it compliments other orthodox treatments and alternative therapies.
I was a Reiki practitioner for 10 years before I encountered and was initiated into Sekhem. As a practitioner, who has channelled and received both these energies, I have found that, although all such processes provide the powerful healing that humanity and earth need to move forward, the Sekhem energy, not only accesses levels higher and deeper but is also gentler and lighter than Reiki.
Sekhem like intuition operates beyond time and space, down to the core of our problems and belief systems at the soul level. Because of its high vibration the process for healing is activated through conscious thought forms and intentions and the intensity can be controlled and varied at will by the giver. The purity of the energy carries the essence of unconditional love; therefore, it is important both the receiver and giver’s intentions be very pure for the energy to vibrate to the receiver’s highest good. This resonance also gives one the courage to take an honest look at oneself and inspires the receiver to heal and change what she/he could be.
Two years ago, when I first arrived in London, from Hong Kong (where I received my training), I worked on a 40 something single mother who had difficulties standing up to her ex-husband. After 3 treatments, which were focused on issues of fear and anger towards her ex, this is what she had to say:
“In the past 5-6 years I have been travelling on this path of holistic healing and treatments, this is the first time I have experienced Sekhem, and was most impressed with what was picked up. I was able to stand up to my ex-husband. This really shocked me, took me by great surprise, because in the 22 years I have known him (including the seven years we have been separated), I have never had the courage to stand up to him or assert myself with him. Although I received the treatments some months ago, I have continued to maintain my assertiveness with him and am also able to finally communicate with him. In turn, I have noticed he is a bit more respectful of me and, unlike in the past, I find he no longer makes me feel inadequate, inferior or ignorant.’’
Such is the awe-inspiring power of this hands-on living light energy which flows softly, yet powerfully through us to release blockages within and accelerate changes in our life without any trauma or drama. It is an energy that really needs to be experienced to be appreciated.
Sekhem, in a spiritual sense, means “might” or “power”. Its origins are within Egypt and before that Lemuria and Atlantis, where it was taught and practiced as a healing art in the very early temples by the High Priests. There are many references to Sekhem on the wall of the temples and pyramids and in scrolls found within the ancient temple ruins.
Reiki/Seichim are seen as offshoots of this system because many thousands of years ago, scholars and monks who travelled to Egypt to learn this system, modified this energy to suit the spiritual beliefs and practices of their local cultures and philosophies, on returning home. These gradual changes over time also altered the vibrational quality of the energy.
The Sekhem energy is associated with the Egyptian lion-headed Goddess Sekhmet, the guardian and protector of this energy. She is strongly linked with the star Sirus, the brightest star in the sky and, according to myth and legend, was present at the Creation of our Universe. This goddess is the bringer of destruction and healing, as she is both the patroness of war and healing sciences, and despite the many myths of destruction, she is also considered to be the Goddess of Regeneration and Healing. Sekhmet destroys that which no longer serves us, so that we can build on a new foundation.
Like many other practitioners of various energy systems, I believe that more powerful systems of healing energy will continue to emerge, as and when Mankind and the Earth, or Gaia (the earth’s spirit), are ready for major shifts. I am also of the opinion this is why Sekhem did not surface before Reiki or Seichim.
The Sekhem energy was re-discovered by Helen Belot who has many recollections of lives as a High Priestess in the very early temples of ancient Egypt. As the custodian of Sekhem, she re-introduced this system in the 1980s to suit the conditions of life today. In her words: “this energy emerged to assist humanity to change their vibration rate quickly and easily to enable Mankind and Earth to ascend to their higher purpose. It is an on-going and developing system and is not static nor totally complete at this stage.”
In addition to being the direct lineage bearer of this system, Helen Belot is also the founder of the Sekhem Association, based in Queensland, Australia.

PERSONALITY: Healing light energy
With a broad smile, Lina Ramchand extends a firm, warm handshake and invites you to sit down beside her. There is a certain calmness about her, an inner peace that she has found since she began her holistic healing journey 17 years ago.
Sekhem is said to be older than the pyramids of Giza. Ancient scrolls as well as inscriptions on the walls of temples and pyramids in Egypt suggest that it pre-dates Reiki (which emerged in the Western world in the 1970s). It was taught and practiced as a healing art by ancient Egyptian high priests. Sekhem is associated with the Egyptian lion-headed goddess Sekhmet who is the protector and guardian of this energy.
This goddess of regeneration and healing is linked to the brightest star in the sky, Sirius. Sekhem only surfaced in the 1980s in Australia when it was reintroduced to the world by Helen Belot who claims to have many recollections of past lives as a high priestess in ancient Egypt.
Sekhem energy, says Ramchand, has the highest vibration of all existing processes and is an on-going and developing system.
"It is important to understand that even though the energy is associated with a goddess, it is not a religion. Both Sekhmet and and Sirius are simply avenues of connecting to this living light energy of the One Almighty source it is drawn from," says Ramchand who is in town to impart her knowledge to those interested in Sekhem.
"Sekhem works simultaneously at all levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This completeness allows it to run through the nervous system, the meridians, seven generations (to heal past life issues) and to work on our inner being. It is also able to impact memories on the etheric and cellular planes and bring about life transforming changes," says Ramchand who is now based in London.
Before she begins the treatment sessions, there are certain cleansing rituals that she performs with incense to clear the space of negative energy. The intention of the treatment is discussed with the client. If the client is not comfortable sharing his or her intention, Ramchand can direct the energy to flow in harmony with the client's intentions to provide the healing required. The client lies face up and Ramchand, placing the centre of her palm at the client's big toe, works her way up to the arms, then the head and over to the other arm, back to the head and chakras and down to the fee. Each session takes about 75 minutes. She also uses Sekhem symbols when necessary.
"The intensity of the flow of the pure, living light energy can be varied or controlled at will by the giver."
The energy is calming, relaxing, uplifting, she says, and has the power to restore physical, emotional and spiritual balance and harmony. It can also be used to treat or help ease conditions such as depression, fatigue, backaches, headaches, digestive problems, stress and anxiety.
"Disease is usually caused by mis-aligned or blocked energy fields as a result of physical and or emotional trauma. Sekhem releases these blocks and realigns the energy with the physical body to restore balance between the body, mind and spirit."
This energy complements most traditional Western and Eastern therapies and is a very safe treatment for easing discomfort pre and post surgery. Sekhem can also be used to help resolve relationship issues, cut through energy blocks, align chakras, create awareness and accelerate self-healing.
"Although I have been channelling this energy for the past seven years, its outcome and what it brings up in different individuals, never ceases to amaze me. Feedback has included courage and strength to stand up to and face fears, ability to deal better with grief, recovery from a limp to walk with a spring in the step and an ability to express themselves with more confidence.
"Such is the awe-inspiring power of this hands-on living light energy which flows softly, yet powerfully through us to release blockages and bring about changes in our lives."
During her stay in Kuala Lumpur, Ramchand is giving one-to-one healing sessions and group workshops at the Yoga2Health, 21A, Jln Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 03-2282 3866 (Tuesday-Sunday).
