Sekhem is an ancient Egyptian healing energy, used as a healing force by the priestesses and priests in the temples of ancient Egypt.
Sekhem means ‘power of powers,’ and is closely related to the ancient Egyptian lioness goddess Sekhmet, who was considered by the ancient Egyptians to be the goddess of destruction and healing. She is the daughter of the sun god Ra.
In February 2018 I visited Sekhmet at Karnak Temple in Luxor, Egypt. For a tip to the guard, I was able to spend some time with her and to photograph her:

The ancient Egyptian healing energy, Sekhem, was rediscovered in modern times by Patrick Zeigler. Patrick had had a dream since boyhood of spending the night inside the Great Pyramid of Giza. As a young man in 1980 he travelled to Egypt, preparing to fulfil this dream. He fasted for 24 hours before entering the Pyramid as a tourist, managing to conceal himself, unknown to the guides.
Overnight, Patrick lay down in the sarcophagus inside the King’s Chamber, and meditated. ... After some time, he heard thundering noises, which he took to be people approaching. He believed he’d been discovered and was consumed with fear. But nobody arrived. ...
As time went on, the noise became even more frightful, and was clearly not human-made.
However, once the thundering died down, Patrick witnessed an infinity symbol of blue light descend upon him, which extended the length of his body as he lay in the sarcophagus. From this point, he was now consumed by a feeling of bliss. ... He had received the ancient Egyptian energy, Sekhem.

When Patrick made his escape from the Great Pyramid the next morning, before the tourists had arrived, he was covered from head to foot in a thick white powder. This drew the attention of the guards, who called out to him to stop and who chased after him. By great fortune, he was able to hop on a bus that was just leaving the area, away from the grasp of the guards.
Patrick wasn’t sure what to do with the energy he had received in the Great Pyramid. He didn’t, at this point, know what it was, nor what it was called. To find answers, he began to study Reiki, started moving in spiritual circles, and talked to people in the healing community, seeking a path for using the gift he had received.
In 1984 Patrick received the energy’s name from a 2,500-year-old Indian guru called Marat, who was channelled by a medium called Christine Gerber. Having only heard the energy’s name spoken by Marat, through Christine, Patrick spelt it ‘Seichim.’
Having received guidance and input in developing his system of Seichim from energy-channelling masters and teachers he met on his quest, Patrick now offered healing Seichim treatments and began initiating students into Seichim so that they could channel Seichim themselves.
Whereas Reiki students become ‘attuned’ to Reiki in a lineage headed by Dr. Mikau Usui, Sekhem students become ‘initiated’ into Sekhem in a lineage originating from Patrick Zeigler—but then forking at Australian, HelenBelôt.
Helen was initiated into Patrick Zeigler’s Seichim. She then went on to develop Patrick’s system, making such changes as turning the 2D symbols used in treatments and initiations into 3D symbols. She called her new system ‘Sekhem.’ It is this system that is taught today.
There are mixed views on whether Sekhem is akin to Seichim, whether Sekhem is a development of Seichim, or whether the two energies are completely distinct. Some who take the latter view claim that HelenBelôt’s Sekhem is from Sirius, whereas Patrick Zeigler’s Seichim is from Pleiades. Much scope for fascinating study and debate!
That was so relaxing, it feels like my head has been cleansed.

It felt very different from Reiki—like a light sheet above the body rather than going physically into my body.

I could feel energy moving round in my tummy. And I could feel energy build up in my thighs and then burst out down through my legs. For a while, it felt like you were tapping the left side of my head repeatedly, even though you weren't there.
Lilith W, Psychotherapist and teacher of the Kabbalah
I really needed that as I've been so anxious recently.
Isla M, Complementary therapist
I felt shivers down both arms, which was quite exciting.

Patrick Zeigler no longer works with Seichim, instead travelling the world to give workshops in an energy he calls All Love. Again, Patrick heard a name and assigned a written form to it. Patrick misheard a Sufi acquaintance referring to all healing energy as being essentially the same—from the same source: God, or as the Sufis say, ‘Allah.’
I was fortunate to meet Patrick and attend one of his immensely powerful All Love workshops in Birmingham in April 2016. Both in a one-to-one session with Patrick and in a group session, I experienced the dramatic shifting of rage I have held for decades around organised religion, which terrified me as a child.
I would highly recommend experiencing the extraordinary power to which Patrick’s workshops can give rise. Here is a taster from an All Love workshop Patrick led in Australia in 2011 ...
