Visions of the Sphinx
by MsAerisShinRa

For a long time now I've been having these strange... things, happening. The people I've told said they were almost like visions or something.

It all began when I woke up one morning, sat up rather strangely and randomly thought about what was under the Sphinx at Giza. Now, my mother was and still is into Ancient Egypt, but it wasn't until all the weird things started happening that I myself took an interest. I started to, as I say, wonder about what was under the sands in the Giza region and I don't know how or even why, but I came to the conclusion that the tomb of the God Osiris was there. He is my favorite of all the gods, because I feel a closeness to him in some way. I just have to look at his face and I get all these emotions sweep through me. Its weird... I'll start to cry and feel like I'm grieving or something.

I feel kinda strange talking about this.. so bear with me if I go round in circles a bit.

Ever since that morning, I've been having strange vision type things. I've been totally awake and on the odd occasion I've been staring out of my bedroom window and then something would flash into my brain. The first of these came a couple of months after that morning. I don't remember what I was doing at the time, but a place suddenly flashed in my head, but then vanished.

It was a large room, a tomb type chamber, with two of those large bowls with oil burning in them (I'll just call them oil burners) the floor was made of dark marble and the rest of the room was made of sandstone, marble and granite. In the centre of the room was either a sarcophagus or some similar shaped slab and on/in it was a body lying peacefully with their eyes closed. It was a man. Not long after I had this, they found what they believed to be Osiris' tomb under the sands at Giza.

The next "vision" or whatever you may call it came a while afterwards. It was during the day and again, it was a while ago, so I don't recall what I was doing at the time. It flashed in my head and left again. It was the time of day when the sky is still blue, but the sun has started to set slowly turning everything orange. There were birds playing in the sky and in amongst the trees either side of an avenue of Sphinxes with Rams heads and there was a man in a chariot riding down it being drawn by two white horses decked out in ostrich feathers. The man was wearing a blue skull cap style thing. Probably a servant or something? I don't know. But I was dressed in white linen and I had gold ornaments. Necklaces and such. I had long black hair (which is odd because I have shortish red hair
(dyed) at the moment.)

I was stood in the entrance to what seemed to be a temple or something and there were two dark corridors, one leading left, the other right with an oil burner at the start of each. The strange part about these things is that they are so detailed. I can smell things too. And in this one there was a heavy scent of Incense. It was a while till I had another of these. But sure enough, I had another. I was sitting on my bed at around four in the afternoon looking out the window at the sky when suddenly an image flashed in my head. It was as though I was blind for a second, but it passed. It was so fast, I only caught a glimpse of the place and it kinda freaked me
out a bit.

About a day later, it happened again, but this time it wasn't as sudden. I was in white again, with black hair. I was reclining on a long seat with two purple cusions beneath me. There were two people either side of me. To my left was a man with a parasol style thing and to my right was another man with a Flabellum (fan of feathers) slowly fanning me as it was around midday and the sun was hot. I could hear the distant call of a falcon and there was a very slight cool breeze. Also to my right, there was a table with a large bowl of fruit on it and next to that were musicians playing lyres etc. To my left in the distance I could plainly see what I saw the day previously when it flashed in my mind. It was the pyramids.

A few days after I had yet another. It was a dark room with two oil burners either side or a large statue of Bast(et) the cat goddess and there was a sound almost like a gong or something large made of metal being struck and incense again filled the air. The thing that is most weird is I'm always wide awake when this happens. I'm never tired or drifting to sleep, I'm always doing something.

I've told many people about it and they have all said the same thing. Which is, in itself, a little strange. Isis re-incarnate? Well, hehe, I'm not a believer in re-incarnation myself, but to them I guess it would explain my connection and deep feeling for Osiris, the fact that I had that tomb vision before they found his tomb (if it really is his) and that I had some clue of where it was before they had even mentioned it.

But, geeze, its a little strong really... I just felt I needed other peoples opinions on the matter.

Now, in the past there has been some misunderstandings, so I'll just list the ones I've answered:

1. I don't believe in re-incarnation at all. If reasonable evidence was given to prove otherwise, then sure I'd at least consider it... but until then I do not believe.
2. My interest in Egypt only came about BECAUSE of these weird 'visions', so it is impossible for it to influence my thoughts in any way at all.
3. I am not claiming to be anyone at all, I was merely repeating what my friends have said.
4. It can't be a memory from an early childhood trip to Egypt as we have NEVER been.

I've spoken to my Mother a lot about all this and she's had some similar things happen to her too. It was only today she had it happen too. And when I've had these "visions," I've been both alone and with people. Sometimes I'll be on my own in my room or in the lounge and other times I've been with my mother when it's happened.

I know one thing... there seems to be a strange link to the number 2 in my 'visions'. 2 White horses, 2 Oil Burners, 2 people, 2 cushions etc etc... In the Ausir (Osiris) legend... 2 was highly significant towards his scattered body parts. 2 feet; 2 legs; 2 thighs; 2 hands; 2 forearms; 2 upper arms etc etc... December 25 was Osiris' resurrection day and that is ruled by Capricorn. (My sign.) and Isis was born on the 4th day... and I was born on the 4th day of the 1st month! But, these probably don't mean anything... I don't know.

I had another strange thing happen on the 1st of January of this year. I was just lying down this morning trying to keep warm (blasted weather) when I decided to see how comfy it was to lay how they used to wrap mummies up. I thought it'd be a right laugh. My Mom and my brother were in the house and Mom had just nipped down stairs to fix dinner and I was in her room.

But when I did it, I had a strange sensation sweep over me, almost like a falling feeling and I felt myself... rather strangly... in another enviroment. I feel silly saying this, but it seemed as if I was sealed in a sarcophagus. But the strange part was... I was rising up throught it, almost... like I was in a spirit form or something. The feeling wouldn't go away, but I had decided I wanted to explore my so called visions from now on, so I tried to keep hold of it for a little while longer. But, as soon as I broke the cross shape my arms were making the enviroment and feeling vanished.

I've been asked by a friend of mine if I ever have anything near me or whether I'm wearing anything specific when I have these things happen. Well... I always wear an Ankh around my neck. And I've never told anyone about this (appart from my family), but when I take it off I feel empty inside, almost like I'm missing something. I once accidentally made the mistake of discovering this fact once when I was out with my Mother and some of her work friends at a pub. I took it off and freaked everyone out I think. lol.

As regards to Osiris, though, you know, my feelings towards him. I am so confused about it. I can't exactly tell what sort of emotion it is? I mean. If someone makes your blood boil when you look at them, then that is obviously hatred and if you see a dead person and cry that's sadness, etc... So maybe you can help here. I dunno. I just want to know what emotion it is that I'm feeling here.

When I see him, I feel a mixture of things at one time, sometimes even contradictory feelings. My heart feels heavy, I just cannot take my eyes away from his face. I just have to look at him to feel happy. It does that no matter if I'm down or not, I just take one look and I'm fine again. I also feel as if I need to 'find' him or something. Like he exists and I need to be with him and stay with him for the rest of my existance. I feel as if I cannot live without him being with me. But, also, at the same time as feeling a strange euphoria, I feel as though I'm in mourning. A heavy feeling hits me and, once or twice (as i've said before) I have even started to cry. Why do I feel like I need to be with him forever and that I cannot bear to be without him.

I have had other visions since, but they have all been based around Giza. I have also found a place that resembles the room with the sarcophagusin my first vision! I have never ever seen this before appart from in my "'vision," so I'm a little weirded out.

...Wow...

I mean...wow...that's all really quirky... :shock: :?

I sorta believe in re-incarnation and past lives...but the other side of me thinks that this person just wrote all this just for entertainment. I feel...very conflicted about this little essay right now. I WANT to believe it, but I feel like...hmmm...yeah. :?

I was playing my computer game, you may have heard of it somehwhere, called "The Egyptian Prophecy", and it's about Ramses II wanting to prolong his life in his 60th year, so he prayed to Amun-Re at Abu Simbel. And Amun told him he had to erect a very large obelisk for him before the season of Shemu, so that Ramses can live until his 80th year in the season of Akhet. So they build a temple to Amun and make ready for the said obelisk, but then strange accidents occur on the site, and the high priest and chief architect, Paser, falls ill. So Maya--the young magician girl and the character you control--is sent to investigate. When I was playing the game, Maya goes up these stairs in Memphis after she meets Osiris in the Book of the Dead, and all of a sudden, I blinked, and saw stairs from Tut's tomb, and I felt like I was walking up them. :shock: I just shook it off...

God-wise, I feel close with Ptah for some odd reason. I guess it's cause he's the God of artisans, and I'm creative in that department. I mean..I like Osiris, and Amun and such...but Ptah is a God I revere the most. Not only that, my favorite Egyptian city is Memphis, where Ptah resides. (am I right? :shock: I'm trying not to sound like a damn fool here...).

Tut is the same, Akhenaten too. I had "visions" or whatever about Akhetaten, I even dreamed about it too. It was actually funny. One minute, I'm watching Akhenaten ride by on the Royal Road in his chariot, the next, I'm standing by him as he sits on his throne, getting all these gifts like gold and statues. I even saw Tut there, roaming the halls.

But I usually dream I'm in Tut's tomb...always with visions, it's either at Akhetaten or in Tut's tomb( In 1922 when it was discovered. I see people pulling out the furniture and such.).

Every time I see Tut's mummy...I get sad. Then I get mad that they pull him out. Then I get upset cause of how he looks as a mummy. Then I get worried cause of the attack in Egypt, God forbid Anything should happen to the tomb, and to Tut, then I start crying again. Damn connection crap...I always wonder why I feel so strongly about him, and about him and Akhenaten being father and son.

Well, whatever, it's 3 A.M here and I feel like I'm ranting over something I want to believe in, but can't, cause these sort of these are random, pointless fantasies. Just because you have these visons and dreams and connections doesn't mean you actually WERE living back then. But then again, who REALLY knows?

..Sorry, my useless ranting again. ^__^;; :lol: 8)

In rely to the original quote. I can understand your uneasiness with what you have experienced. I have walked in the same shoe's as to be freaked out by what can't be explained. But just because you can't explain it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It's not like you can turn it off. Sometime's our spirit guide has to slap us around abit to get our attention. Be thank-ful that you have such vision's to help make you whole. It is in my opinion, that you feel as you do because in your own word's When I see him, I feel a mixture of things at one time, sometimes even contradictory feelings. My heart feels heavy, I just cannot take my eyes away from his face. I just have to look at him to feel happy. It does that no matter if I'm down or not, I just take one look and I'm fine again. I also feel as if I need to 'find' him or something. Like he exists and I need to be with him and stay with him for the rest of my existance. I feel as if I cannot live without him being with me. But, also, at the same time as feeling a strange euphoria, I feel as though I'm in mourning. A heavy feeling hits me and, once or twice (as i've said before) I have even started to cry. Why do I feel like I need to be with him forever and that I cannot bear to be without him.
If this isn't soul mating material I don't know what is. You are meant to except the fact that this earlier spirit is left lingering and just waiting for you to take the chance to reclaim it; in order to move on into the light. Become ONE shall we way? So, there you have it.

Everybody is meant to color their journey and it is my opinion that you can't live truthfully (Which is individual as snowflakes) unless you are creating. Enough said about serving purpose....

the emotion is love but not any love unspoken love.(the worst kind) i do not at all belive in past life. what you speak of is wird and uh yah. but for my say. i have looked at king tut's death mask and i did cry i mean my nose started burning and goodness. i am going to see him in fortlauderdale in the new year. i have seen the new c t scane and my inner knowing told me that thats not at all what he looked like. peolpe and places flash before me all the time even ones i have never seen before. you may just be in love with the story of osiris it happens belive me. my heart hearts so bad when i think of king tut that i wish i lived back then. like i said though once you leave this world you do not come back as another person. because the soul is the blood and death is death. but i know by my religion that i just may get to see the real king tut. and maby even you qustions will be anserwed as well. oh has any one felt themselves needing to go some where and despertly longing for that place?

Logically this can't make sense. A flower has no blood and although it fall's to the ground after it's season it is reborn again from the earth. We shall agree that no two thing's are ever created the same (everything is unique); but literally speaking, there is death and rebirth. Where do you suppose the spirit of life rest's?
I know also all to well what is feels long to long to go to another place for my heart is in a constant vagabond state.

..Sorry, my useless ranting again. ^__^;; :lol: 8)


I know this is another old thread but I've just read it with interest because past lives is something I do know a fair bit about. A couple of years ago I had never thought about past lives.

This changed when I kept having visions of myself dancing round a camp fire. These visions were during the daytime when I was fully awake, & at that time, I'd never meditated.

I had no idea what this meant, or that they were indeed visions. It wasn't until I got to know someone online who is an experienced medium, that I found out exactly what my recurring vision was. She told me about a past life I'd had with a Lakota Indian brave (he is my main spirit guide but I didn't know that at the time). It was some time after being given that information that the penny dropped, & I realised my recurring vision must be connected to that life.

I was right. My friend confirmed this with my main guide. I was about 19 at the time, & had sneaked some firewater from some of the braves during one of the victory dances. I danced round the campfire & fell over...a bit worse for wear. :oops:

Anyway, what I have to say is this: Many folks don't believe in reincarnation & some just don't want to. That's ok but please don't ever feel foolish if you think you've had visions of any of your past lives. Don't feel pressured not to mention them, for fear of someone shouting you down or labelling you stupid.

As I'm developing my mediumship abilities, I've learned of more of my past lives. There are some aspects of them that are very interesting. Some explain worries from my current life, and traits too.

Anyway, this is a fascinating subject, and yes, there will always be some who pretend to have been someone famous in a past life but there are some who actually have been. There will always be some folks who are not truthful. I personally, don't see the point in pretending.

What would be nice I think, is that we can continue this interesting topic. It's ok not to believe it all, as long as we all respect each other's views. I've seen some boards (not AE ones) turn into real nastiness just because one person (not me) posted something about a past life & the majority didn't like it. They lost quite a few members because of it. In my opinion there was no need for it.

I've rambled on, so I'll shut up now & get on with some decorating. :roll:

I couldn't have said that better myself! I agree it would be good if we could continue this topic because I too feel it a fascinating one. :)
