Dive into the light
The pyramids, you saw them so often on pictures.
Now you are here, eye to eye with the Sphinx.
A pyramid view from your balcony…
Your heart starts to sing. Your daily train of thoughts stop. You feel yourself surrounded by the environment.
Here starts our trip. A journey that leads us to three special places: the pyramids from Giseh and Sakkara, Akhetaton (the current city Al Amarna) and the pilgrimage place of Abydos with the beautiful temple of Seti I and the Osirion.
We start our trip by visiting the pyramids in Giseh, traditionally seen as the origin of the light.
As we see the pyramids as the beginning, we can see Amarna as the highest point of the light. We will tell you everything about this precious city, build by Akhenaten and Nefertiti.
Our third stop, Abydos, can be seen as the end of the cycle. The sun goes down and takes a jump in the underworld of Osiris.
After that, a new day begins and so we will return to Giseh as a symbolical re-rise.
During this trip, which is called ‘ dive into the light’, we get a chance to absorb the atmosphere of different places we will visit. Beside what we see, we like to let sing your hearts by stories and myth’s of Ancient Egypt./we like to give you a light experience by telling the stories and myth’s of Ancient Egypt.
The story of Akhenaten and Nefertiti.
We are in the 18th dynasty. King Amenhotep III reigned with queen Tiye. It was a time of expansion. Big new temples and monuments were build. The priests were powerful.
But, did their knowledge still served the people? Did they act from purity? Or did they care more about their own power?
What we know is that Amenhotep IV, his son, later named Akhenaten, turned his back on the priests and moved to a virgin piece of land to create a new capital: Akhet-aten, the horizon of the Aten, now known as Al Amarna.
Akhenaten and Nefertiti felt that new light frequencies were willing to enter the planet, as if the heavenly Source opened herself deeper. They knew – to be a conductor of this new light frequencies – they had to create something completely different. That’s why they left Luxor and the powerful priests of Amun and build a city of light.
By visiting the remainings of the city we will enter deep into there story.
