Ancient Egypt Box

Ancient Egypt (Kemet) had a rich spiritual culture, steeped in mythology and meaningful symbolism. The items in this month’s box celebrate the magic of this ancient and foundational tradition.

Egyptian Papyrus Art Card: 

Image of Queen Nefertari making an offering to Isis. Replica of a painting from Nefertari’s tomb in Thebes.

- 4"Glass Pyramid: 

The pyramids of Egypt were sacred places for spiritual initiation. The bottom of the pyramid signified the earth and denser planes while the point signified the Divine. Use this amazing tool to focus the light of the divine upon whatever is placed inside, to charge your intentions written on paper, or other meaningful objects such as crystals and ritual tools. 

- Egyptian Tarot Grand Trumps: 

Many believe that the origins of the tarot deck are Ancient Egypt. This Grand Trumps deck (the Major Arcana only) was created with Egyptian symbolism and the traditional tarot style cards. They offer an opportunity to deepen your connection with your higher mind, and guides. 

-Scarab Figurine: 

Representing the Sun God Ra, the scarab is a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection.

-Eye of Horus Pendant: 
Horus is an ancient a sky god whose eyes were said to be the sun and the moon. The Eye of Horus was believed to have healing and protective power, and it was used as a protective amulet

-Lapis Lazuli Worry Stone:  
Lapis was a sacred and highly prized in Egypt, often used in the breastplates of priests. Lapis activates the higher mind, intellectual ability and the quest for knowledge, truth and understanding. It is excellent for learning, enhancing memory and it also encourages honesty. The indentation in this “worry stone” is rubbed with the thumb and used for relaxation.
