KA - Ancient Egypt Soul
without pain and pass without sorrow into the plane where
eternal Light is
Human Life Force
The KA, in ancient Egypt, symbolized the concept
of life force, the difference between a living and
a dead person. Death occurs when the KA leaves the
body. The Egyptians believed that the KA was sustained
through food and drink. For this reason, food and drink
offerings were presented to the dead inside the tombs.
In ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs KA is
represented by a two raised hands. The belief was that the split
into two after death - Ba, and Ka. Ba had a role of watching the
family of the deceased and the Ka was free to enjoy life after
The KA bracelet
contains elements taken from the Emerald
Tablets and the culture of ancient Egypt. The lotus flower on the
KA bracelet symbolizes the circle of life and death because,
during the course of the day the lotus flower remains on the
surface of the water and under the cover of night, it sinks
beneath the water's surface.
The KA bracelet itself is inlaid with semi-precious stones that
were used by the ancient Egyptians such as Jasper that was worn
for protection or Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli and Onyx.
The translation of the hieroglyphs engraved on the bracelet says -
"Rise up and
awaken, you are not dead, your 'Ka' will remain within you for
The Emerald Tablets describe the process used by Thoth to leave
his body and protect the essence of his "Ka" without dying. This
is the method by which he was reborn into different bodies (in
Greece he was known as Hermes Trismegistus - Hermes who was born
three times). The same goal can be achieved through the Merkaba
Emerald Tablets of Thoth
Here is the part of the Emerald tablet of Thoth that explains the
"Hear ye, O man, and list to my voice.
List to the wisdom that gives thee of Death.
When at the end of thy work appointed,
thou may desire to pass from this life,
pass to the plane where the Suns of the Morning
live and have being as Children of Light.
Pass without pain and pass without sorrow
into the plane where is eternal Light.
First lie at rest with thine head to the eastward.
Fold thou thy hands at the Source of thy life (solar plexus).
Place thou thy consciousness in the life seat.
Whirl it and divide to north and to south.
Send thou the one out toward the northward.
Send thou the other out to the south.
Relax thou their hold upon thy being.
Forth from they form will thy silver spark fly,
upward and onward to the Sun of the morning,
blending with Light, at one with its source.
There it shall flame till desire shall be created.
Then shall return to a place in a form.
Know ye, O men, that thus pass the great Souls,
changing at will from life unto life.
Thus ever passes the Avatar,
willing his Death as he wills his own life.
List ye, O man, and drink of my wisdom.
Learn ye the secret that is Master of Time.
Learn ye how those ye call Masters are
able to remember the lives of the past.
Great is the secret yet easy to master,
giving to thee the mastery of time.
When upon thee death fast approaches
fear not but know ye are master of Death.
Relax thy body, resist not with tension.
Place in thy heart the flame of thy Soul.
Swiftly then sweep it to the seat of the triangle.
Hold for a moment, and then move to the goal.
This, thy goal, is the place between thine eyebrows,
the place where the memory of life must hold sway.
Hold thou thy flame here in thy brain-seat
until the fingers of Death grasp thy Soul.
Then as thou pass through the state of transition,
surely the memories of life shall pass, too.
Then shalt the past be as one with the present.
Then shall the memory of all be retained.
Free shalt thou be from all retrogression.
The things of the past shall live in today.
