Agnes Toews-Andrews

Pagan Paths blogger, national best-selling author, meta-physician, Advanced Reiki Master, Agnes Toews-Andrews, has been researching the Goddess, the paranormal and metaphysical at home in Canada and at sacred sites around the world since 1987. It was while working with energy/Reiki that her clairsentient and clairaudient abilities began to open. A world traveler, she is the author of 6 non-fiction books and 1 book of fiction. At home in the question mark, Agnes has known since the age of 14 while watching a sunset in rural British Columbia that she was to be an 'activator' of humanity.  She is the proud mother of two and grandmother of five. She currently resides on a Selkirk mountain top in the West Kootenays, British Columbia.

Mysterious Egypt: Part Three, Isle of Philae, Isis, Nefertari, Saqqara Temples, Ramses II

My joy knew no bounds for I had returned to Isis Temple on the Isle of Philae in Egypt's Nile River. Wondrous feelings of devotion of the goddess Isis flowed through my psyche as I sat on that block of pink granite levitating. I recalled how Isis appeared to me in a New Years eve meditation. She was dark haired, dark skinned and wore the vulture headdress and the solar disks upon her head. She was sober looking and her message to me in that meditation was one of being blessed as I continued my spiritual journey. 

I discovered a few years later that I had been a priestess in the Temple of Isis during the reign of Ramses II around 1300 BCE, and that I used to kneel on that very stone that had not yet been placed back inside the temple! When I recently saw who I was -- Nefertari -- I had just released myself from a prison that I had been held in for 3000 years. The process is called the CCMBA, Complete Conscious Mind Body Alignment technique that Dr. Sharron Forest, of British Columbia had discovered. When I did the CCMBA with Dr. Forest I saw that I had become the wife of Ramses II because I was of royal blood and I was living in the temple as an initiate at the time I was chosen. At some point in my queenly journey I agreed to go through an initiation in the Great Pyramid in a closed sarcophagus. By this time evil priests had taken over the feminine Egyptian sacred sites.

I feel it was a combination of things that got me murdered, as I was also convinced of and promoting the return to the worship of one God, a philosophy that had died out in Egypt. I died unresolved in that closed sarcophagus so many years ago. I went stark raving mad. During the release of this stuck emotional memory the karmic block held in the bones of my spine were forevermore released.

Ahhh. Egypt, mysterious and wonderful. When we reached our hotel in the southern city of Abu Simbel early evening we discovered that the hotel had been double booked. All fifteen of us were stranded. At eight p.m. the lights went out and dinner was by candlelight. We drank tea and organic Egyptian wine as we sat in the lounge after dinner and waited. It was near midnight when rooms had finally been vacated! Who knows what happened, but we were happy they had happened and settled into our sparse but acceptable rooms for the night.

 The next morning we were off early to see the sun rise over the colossal imposing 67 foot stone carved figures of Ramses II. My foot slipped on the walk and I was in pain. Along with almighty Ramses were the gods Ptah, Amun Ra and Re-Horakte. They lined a sandstone cavern temple. This site was sacred to the goddess Hathor before Ramses decided to build temples. Ever popular and charismatic, on one side of the cavern the statues of Ramses II showed him wearing the White Crown of Upper Egypt and on the south side statues Ramses II wore the Double Crown of Lower Egypt.  The statues had been plucked from their original site by UNESCO and were now 200 feet higher on this taupe sandstone cliff.  

I noticed a row of prepared for flight noble hawks carved of sandstone atop the balustrade leading into the main temple as I sat and Reikiied my throbbing foot. A sacred cliff rose before me. Ramses II also built a smaller but lavish temple for Nefertari here in Abu Simbel. I could feel his love for her in the walls, they exuded kindness and thoughtfulness. Temples were places of residence mostly in times of yore.

Mysterious Egypt: Cairo, Karnak, Luxor and the Valley of Queens

 My initial trip to sprawling Cairo with a group of UNMO (United Nations Military Officers) wives happened to coincide with the birthday of an influential Muslim saint, what a party! The souk, Khan- el Khalili, was a campground of hookah smoking, lamb chops broiling and camp stoves smoldering. Barefoot children dressed in dirty off–white galabiyas dashed in and out of the throngs of colorful Middle Eastern clad men and women. Eerie sounds of drum and flute filtered throughout the warm night as the thousands of Muslims gathered in the square. Canadian Reiki Master, writer and explorer me was expectant of the same scenario each future trip to Cairo.

 “You leave your reason at the border,” I was told by my Israeli travel consultant before departing on a comprehensive Egyptian tour a few months later.

Magical Cyprus Home of Aphrodite, Part One

 

Jerusalem where I have been living for almost two years has been entirely too hot now for several weeks -- hot in the sense that there are protests, violence and constant shelling in the wadi near my cottage, something I cannot do anything about.  The hachzim, hot dry desert wind -- that can drive one mad -- a time when you can murder your wife without repercussions, had also been upon us lately. That too I cannot do anything about.

Roosters crowed. I stirred and viewed the clock: 4:30 a.m. Was I somewhere near Konya, Turkey? I staggered from my bed and went to the hotel bay window pulling back the heavy curtains, looking out towards the Toros Daglan Mountains shrouded in mystery.I had just communed with higher dimensional beings in my dream state that felt feminine. I lit a candle and wrote a poem:

    Ms. Toews-Andrews, So you saw the tomb of King Midas, the Orient Express hotel where Agatha Christie wrote books, an 8-story unde

My several over-the-pole flights had discombobulated my energy and I was flat out on the couch in my lovely Gilo cottage when my husband announced we were flying to Istanbul the next morning. Oy Vay! Come what may I had to pull myself together and prepare for a two week adventure through Turkey, our last Middle East adventure.

We arrived at ten the following morning to a country that lies in Western Asia and Europe; the Dardanelles, Sea of Marmora and the Bosphorus separating it from Europe. Turkey is said to be a democratic country and part of the Council of Europe.

This July day the Turkish airport was filled with a bustling throng of excited, Turkish and western travellers. Heaps of vibrancy and anxious and apprehensive minds and faces dominated the scene. We took a cab to our hotel passing by the crumbling stadium where gladiators fought lions. I had seen a past life of my husband’s in this occupation.
