From the editor
After planning an All Love magazine for several years, it is a great pleasure to finally bring you this first issue. The magazine covers all aspects of the SKHM energy, which Patrick Zeigler re-discovered following his mystical experience in the Great Pyramid in 1980, and the method of working with the energy which he has since developed and now uses in his workshops all over the world. It contains articles on SKHM and its history; interviews; personal accounts and reactions to experiencing the SKHM energy, and photographs from workshops and special classes. All Love magazine includes an international list of currently licensed SKHM teachers, which will enable those who are interested in attending a workshop to contact a licensed teacher in their area or country. The magazine will be following the development and future evolution of SKHM, and we will be interested to include material from anyone currently involved in SKHM. I really hope you enjoy this first issue. All Love, Michael Heemskerk
Hi, I would like to thank Michael for organizing and putting together the first SKHM magazine. Many people ask, what is SKHM? For me it is not just an energy but a way of life. Each class I teach, I learn something new, and realize that I am only seeing a fraction of what SKHM is. To define SKHM is to put a limitation on it; each person has their own experience of SKHM and the energy becomes the best teacher. One of the reasons SKHM/Sekhem/Seichim has become so well-known is because each person can make their own unique connection to SKHM. Each person finds a facet that they are comfortable with, and it becomes a part of their life. This aspect of SKHM can become confusing, especially when one person claims SKHM is this and another claims it is that. Just know that SKHM comes to us through our own filters, and we experience it in a way we are most comfortable with. Those that prefer to work with a pure energy experience it as that. Those that prefer to have an intermediary, such as a guide or God/Goddess will experience that aspect.The energy will come to you in the form you are most comfortable with! We are highly creative beings so the possibilities are endless. We have the ability to create whole worlds in our dreams and visions; there are no limitations, the only limitations we have are those that we put upon ourselves. We are at a time now in which group energies are becoming more easy to access. Why is this? Because we are becoming closer to the group consciousness of humanity. Agreed, we still have so much separation, and we live in a world where there is still war, but keep in mind too that we also live in a world where there is a peace on the planet which has never existed on such a scale before. Communication world-wide is simply amazing. The internet has made the world a much smaller place, where everyone can have a voice, and be as big or as small as they wish. Each voice is expressed and heard, and what is manifesting on this level is surely what is also possible on the Spiritual level as well. And who knows, maybe some day we will not need the computers any more! This Magazine will help build awareness and community. It is a big step for all of us.
For those interested in learning SKHM, we are currently offering online/phone sessions; these sessions are required to become a SKHM teacher. Along with the sessions there will be intermediate support and the opportunity to work with others in the program. Each session is about an hour to an hour and a half and that also includes a follow up call. Once in the program you can feel free to email or call with questions and for support anytime. A $25 annual fee is required to enter the program; this fee will include listing you as a member of our SKHM program so others can contact you for training sessions and eventually SKHM Teacher certification. The fee also includes our New SKHM Magazine to be published several times a year. The cost per session is $100 (may vary from country to country). The distant session will begin the Initiation process called a SKHM-Khet. After a SKHMKhet you will be better able to help support others through a SKHM-Khet experience though energetic resonance. It is recommended receiving a minimum of at least eight sessions and giving a minimum of eight sessions; facilitating others through the SKHM-Khet is one of the best ways to integrate and learn SKHM. Many people will open up to the SKHM-Khet during the first session; however, it may take up to 4 or 5 sessions. The remaining sessions will help to integrate the energy more fully and also give support to help facilitate others through a SKHM-Khet (Initiation.) This part of the program is to facilitate distant healing and to connect with the Shenu Meditation and to facilitate others through the Initiation process. Distant sessions are to complement three in person workshops, for SKHM Teacher requirements. These workshops are designed to introduce the group Initiation process and to learn appropriate skills to facilitate and support group energies. The workshops and distant training is required for SKHM Teacher Certification. Each part of the program can be taken independently as each person progress within the program at their own pace. You are encouraged to begin teaching and sharing when you feel ready, as you teach you will grow. The SKHM energy is the best teacher. For a list of Certified Teachers see page 15 of this magazine. All Love, Patrick
“Even though mental, emotional and physical healing do take place the SKHM class is not recommended for people currently being medicated or have serious mental and emotional problems. The class is designed for mentally healthy people who wish to strengthen their awareness to source”.
Patrick Zeigler and Michael Heemskerk are working on a new meditation which will be released very soon.

(Pronounced Saykhém) SKHM is the healing spiritual energy that the Egyptians used, and which was taught in the temples of ancient Egypt. SKHM is channeled Living Light Energy from Source. It is another aspect of the One source, just like Reiki. It was rediscovered by PatrickZeigler while in Egypt. Just like Reiki, SKHM connects withSource, to establish a healing in the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Bodies. The energy is used to heal, and to stimulate personal development to reach one’s true purpose. The presence of unconditional love is a very important aspect of SKHM, and this differentiates it from any other energy. Compared with other systems which work with energy, SKHM is more a group-oriented energy. One of its great characteristics is that it seems to support the development of each individual within the group, in whatever way s/he needs at the time. The energy not only enables new personal insights, but it also suggests to people new ways in which they can begin to use the energy. For this reason, the system has been adapted and changed along the way by different people who have used the energy. Since Patrick re-discovered the energy in 1980, various systems and methods of working with the energy have been developed. Seichim was the original name given to the system. Kathleen Milner later adapted it and created her own system, called Tera Mai Seichem, and various other systems have now evolved, including Isis Seichim, Seichem, Seichim, and Sekhem, which use a variety of initiation methods and different symbols. The many different spellings have caused a great deal of confusion! SKHM is the system which Patrick Zeigler now uses to connect and work with the energy. He no longer uses ‘regular’ attunements, in which a person’s energy system is altered to bring up a premature Initiation. Instead he uses what he calls a ‘flowing meditation,’ which is more a process of allowing and guiding the flow of energy, then supporting the spontaneous initiation which may occur through a person’s own internal process. When the energy enters a person’s energy field, it tends to start shifting any energetic blocks it encounters, and Patrick uses a variety of techniques to help the person become aware of these blocks and to identify their origin. Once they have been released, a spontaneous initiation may occur. Patrick feels that it is better to let the energy itself be the teacher; that way he does not place his own limitations on it.Even though it does have an Egyptian feel and heritage, he does not promote it as such because that in itself begins to define what the energy is. Once it is defined, it becomes very difficult to grow and expand. SKHM means Power in a spiritual manner, but there are many other definitions, including Might, Altar, The Natural Force, Vital Force, Vital Force Of Men, or any Spiritual Power or Psychic Force, Place of the Gods, God of the Altar or Habitat of the Gods, Place of Power. SKHM can be a beautiful addition to Reiki, or whatever kind of energetic healing method you already use.
In the Great Pyramid
Patrick traveled to Egypt in 1979 to fulfill a childhood dream of sleeping in the Great Pyramid of Giza. Patrick visited the Pyramid and found a small opening to the left of the King's Chamber wich had been created by thieves who had tried to cut through the wall surrounding the Chamber. The gate covering the opening was unlocked. Patrick did not know where it led, yet he knew that this tunnel was where he would hide. After spending some time meditating in both the King’s and Queen’s Chambers, Patrick left the Pyramids to prepare to come back the next day. He began fasting and returned to the Pyramid the next morning with a bag packed with what he would need for spending the night. He went directly to the tunnel, and when no one was looking, started to crawl into it. The tunnel was quite narrow and tilted upward. Patrick soon found himself in a small carved-out room just above the King’s Chamber, where he spent the entire day peacefully meditating. After the pyramid emptied of tourists and was locked for the night, Patrick came out of his hiding place and, with a flashlight in hand, proceeded to the King’s Chamber. He made his way to the granite sarcophagus, discovering that when he bumped its side, it resounded like a very deep gong. He stepped into the sarcophagus and lay down on the stone base. As Patrick attempted to quiet himself, he heard a buzzing sound. Soon he recognized the buzz as mosquitoes, and found that his feet, arms and face were the target. He remembered packing toilet paper, so got up and quickly wrapped himself in it, looking like a mummy as he lay back down in the sarcophagus. Safe from the mosquitoes, Patrick was now able to become quiet and started to meditate. In a short wile, Patrick began hearing thumping sounds that seemed to be footsteps coming up from the grand gallery. The sound kept getting closer, and he knew he had to stay where he was to avoid detection.No one turned the lights on, and Patrick soon realized this was because the sound was likely not human. This realization was so penetrating that waves of fear came over his body, almost overwhelming him. Though he had been in dangerous situations before, this fear was different and was not going away.A presence then entered the room and the thumping sound now pulsated throughout the Chamber. As Patrick looked into the darkness, a swirling pattern of electric blue light appeared and hovered over him.Something inside told him this was why he had come, and he went deep within his fear, reassuring himself not to be afraid. Patrick thought, “Do what you have to do,” and at that very instant, the light descended into his heart. For a moment, there was total silence, and Patrick wondered if he was still alive. Yet his heart felt so expansive, and the sound now coming from inside of it was identical to the one that had been in the Chamber. Patrick spent the rest of the night in a state of peaceful bliss, meditating on the electric blue energy in his heart as it swirled in an infinity or figure-eight pattern. In the morning, Patrick returned through the tunnel to his hiding place before the Pyramid opened for the day. He meditated there until he felt it was time to come out and join with a group of tourists leaving the Pyramid. Patrick noticed he was covered in a glimmering white powder and brushed off as much as he could. As he was exiting, he could hear the guards yelling at him to come back because they realized he had spent the night inside. Patrick understood their language and pretended not to hear them. As luck would have it, a bus was just pulling away. He jumped on it and it took him right to his hotel. Once he was safely back in his room, Patrick looked at himself in the mirror, and for the first time realized the white glistening powder was blanketing him from head to toe, just as if someone had dropped a large bag of flour on him. He later learned that this powder is known to be in the pyramids and is used in India to promote healing and spiritual powers. In the West, some call it white gold and use it to heighten a person’s spiritual vibrations.
Interview with Patrick Zeigler
BASED ON A TAPE TRANSCRIPT Traversing the whispers of healing energy: Practitioners of living light energy “Seichim.” Research Project in partial fulfillment of a Masters Degree in Social Anthropology. Patrick Scott Zeigler people after I took a healing class, but energy healing doesn’t come with a manual. Start again by telling me what is Seichim? Well of course, you are pronouncing it more like Seicheem, whereas actually it is pronounced more like Seihim. It’s got a real guttural sound to it, that we don’t have in our alphabet. Similarly, many people say Saychem, but actually it is Sekhem; the vowels are much shorter. The word itself comes from an Egyptian source, from which many different meanings are derived, the simplest being power of powers. They didn’t really have a word for energy, so the word power was used instead, from which a whole range of other meanings arise. It’s similar to how people now use the word Reiki, sort of the vital source of man, which of course represents the power. You know when you come into the power or energy. Nowadays, we use the word energy a lot, rather than power. So when we talk about power, people sometimes get a little confused about that, because power has come to be associated more with an ego thing, which of course was not necessarily the case back then. The other meaning of Seichim is a place, kind of like a Shambala, where the Gods dwelt or were created. There was actually also at one time a city of this name. I did do just a little bit of research and came up on the web with the idea that this city was going to be reborn. So you can see that there is a whole variety of meanings of Seichim, but for the most part they are all connected to the energy, the life force, and that’s essentially how I see it today. So it would be in a class too, where we are connecting with our energy, connecting with our source, and from that, other aspects come about. A lot of people connect with guides, or sometimes other energy forms as well, but the main aspect that I like to focus on in describing it is the connection to source. And Source is another way of saying God? Yes, the reason I don’t necessarily say God is because God can mean different things to different people and that can sometimes turn people off. And again, you know that saying God
Patrick Scott Zeigler
Patrick is an internationally known spiritual healer who incorporates the body, mind and spirit in each healing session. He has a loving healing energy which radiates from his heart, hands and voice. He has studied Holistic Healing for over 25 years. His experience includes living and studying with respected healers, shamans and gurus in Arabia, Nepal, India and Africa. Patrick is certified in Therapeutic Massage, Meditation, Yoga, Reiki Mastership, Divine Unity and Advanced Energy Healing. In 1984 Patrick introduced to the world an ancient healing method called SEICHIM.
more than likely means male, and some people can get upset about that when God is included in the whole dynamic. Actually, of course, creator is not gender specific, nor is source. You were also saying to me last time we talked that you saw Seichim as a process of self-discovery.Would you also consider it to be a healing system? Well, it’s definitely a karma healing system. In the beginning, you know, it was for my own personal healing and then it started to develop into working with others. Naturally when you start to make a connection to Source, healing aspects come about, so healing is just kind of the by-product of connecting to source. You saw it initially as personal selfdiscovery and healing, so how did it come about that it got ‘out there?’ Did you get to a point where you felt it needed to be shared and was no longer just yours? Well, as I said, I originally worked on my own, and then had very strong feelings to study different forms of healing with different healing schools, one in New Mexico and one in California. It was through that, for instance, I did a lot of body work, massage therapy, that type of thing, so that all dealt with healing and complemented the energy very well. When I was in the massage group in California, that’s when I began to share it more and then it began to take off from there. The lady I initially shared with, and taught, ended up bringing it to Australia and then to New Zealand.
What is Seichim? How would you describe it to someone who had never heard of it before? I have read the book ‘ALL LOVE,’ have found various sources of information on the internet, and have also had it described by Practitioners and my own Teacher, but I would like to hear it from you. Well, for me it’s a personal thing, a process of self-discovery. For each person, it’s different, but for me it started out as a personal journey. I then began sharing it one-on-one, and gradually it’s grown to groups of twenty-five or so. More and more people are taking a class; this month there could be a group of one hundred people. We can’t get SKHM out there more until we have more teachers; when more people become teachers, who knows what will happen.At the present time, there aren’t a lot of people teaching what I’m currently teaching. There are a lot of people teaching the original form I taught a very long time ago – almost twenty years ago – and that’s what gave Seichim a name. So has it changed as a result of yourown experiences? It’s nebulous, isn’t it, because it’s evolving, changing, expanding, all the time? Well, that’s correct, a lot of it does reflect the experience that I am having at the time. I first began to work with massage then one on one with
This was Phoenix Summerfield? Yes, Phoenix was one of the people that initially brought it over, but a lady named Deepa Slater was probably the first person to bring it to Australia. She studied with a lady called Marsha Burack, a student of Phoenix’s. Not too far down the tree from you then? Yes, I kept in pretty close contact withPhoenix and she shared things with me often, however, we never met until several years down the way, so she kind of began to develop it on her own in different ways to the original people. They were Reiki Masters, and there was a lot of Reiki involved, so it became kind of an extension of Reiki. However, I would say that using it in that way doesn’t utilise its full capabilities, in fact it quite often limits the way in which the energy is used. You mentioned previously in relation to symbolism, that you get to a point where the symbols are no longer required? I understand that you began teaching Seichim much like Reiki, and now you don’t teach it that way. Can you explain this? I only taught it that way for a very short period of time and then I began to use visualisation with it, and that’s now developed even more. A good example is that Reiki uses a lot of Japanese symbols or symbols that have been handed down. Yet out of the whole Reiki set of symbols, there is only one symbol that actually represents the energy pattern, and that is spiralling energy. The way I work is that every image works with the energy pattern itself. So you know, if you see a visualisation of a flower opening, it’s sort of like the crown chakra opening; I use a column for the way the energy flows in a straight line; and I use a cross until the energy starts to move and to rise inside. I’ll even use the ankh, which is a symbol, but is actually an energy pattern, bringing together the energy which you have brought down and the energy of the earth. In some ways it’s like one our energy centres, it is above the top of the head so we can link better the outside and the inside. But these visualisations all represent ways in which the energy actually works, they’re not kind of a pictogram of something else. You mean as a Reiki symbol is? Yes. A good example is the Master symbol in Reiki, Dai Ko Myo. What it represents is “Great Shining Everlasting Light.” However, if you don’t know Japanese and you look at the symbol, you would never figure out what that is trying to represent. If you know Japanese, you can actually 6
see that oh, they are saying that it’s great, there is a shining symbol and there is a light symbol, but the way it has been used in Reiki doesn’t portray it as a Great Shining Light. So what I end up actually using is a visualisation of a great light or you know, a great sun, or a great star and visualise that because that is actually the experience you end up having, you know you don’t normally have an experience of Japanese symbols unless they are somehow projected to you. And this is of course quite common. A lot of people say, “Yes, I’ve seen this symbol before,” because people have projected the energy to them as these symbols. If you are having a light experience or connection with source, you’re probably not going to have these symbols come in, you will actually see light and feel that; its going to be a more of a pure energy experience rather than seeing a bunch of symbols. Tell me a little about the structure of the system. Traditionally, it was much like a pyramid; the system was taught by a Master/Teacher and filtered down; the student would go along and become a practitioner, then a Master and then a Teacher. Now you are teaching it differently, so what is the valid structure now? Yes, well instead of just having a weekend Master course, which tended to be the way things were going, I do feel that to really work with the energy, and to understand it, takes almost a year, and sometimes even two years. Of course a lot of people want it immediately. You can come to a weekend class and really have an
incredible experience with it and connect with the energy, but you really can’t teach it and have a good understanding of it; to do this takes a little more time. So I’ve set up a program that allows teachers to come out really knowing how to teach rather than just doing a kind of cookbook formula. Which in some ways Reiki has evolved into the West, although it is changing now as more and more people are getting back to some of the older forms. But even with the Seichim, like you said, being passed on from one person to the next, you are given a little recipe that you pass along and you can charge a lot of money for that. But that’s not really how it was intended to be used. So in the beginning it was just one way of getting it out? It served its purpose. It’s out there; people have learned it, and are using it. Now, we are reconnecting with a lot of those folks, because they have an awareness about it, and they are now getting a stronger depth to the energy when they come back and take these classes. So would you say that there is a valid structure - for people to come back and re-look at it? Well, in a sense there is a structure we do use, you know, we provide a completely different approach than others currently use. The class is not really taught in a set structure; each class is very different, very unique. The energy flows in its own unique way for every class. Some classes, some things get taught, in some classes some things don’t get taught. It just depends on the way the energy comes in. One of the reasons I recommend that people take three classes is that usually with three classes they get all the pieces. Three classes over a set period of time? Three weekend classes. That’s just recommended, it’s not set up like Reiki, where you have the 1st degree,
2nd degree, 3rd degree. I don’t really give out degrees you know, though I do give certification that you came to a class. Once you are able to teach, I do a Teacher’s level, broken down into two different levels. This focuses more on teaching skills. Some people are going to be able to work on-on-one, and others will have the skills to work with a group, but the energy is not going to be any different. Patrick, do you find that most people who come along to classes have a certain set of beliefs, for instance a belief in past life experiences, or a desire to heal past trauma? Is there a similarity in what different people bring along? Well, past life issues have become important in modern times. Since we have a connection with Egypt, we do tend to bring in a lot of people who have an interest in Egyptiantype things. As indeed I have always had myself, since I was young. I feel that that may very well have been a past life influence. However, I don’t put a lot of emphasis on past life influences in the class, and some people may be a little disappointed about that. But we are not doing an ancient Egyptian healing, we are not teaching the way in which it was taught back in Egypt. People need to understand that the class is very much focussed on the here and now; we are using an ancient energy, but it is being taught with a very modern technique. But there is definitely an interest in past life influences in people coming in. Just recently I had a lady call me who is very interested in Egyptian-type healing; she feels a connection to that because of her own past life experiences. We talked a little about initiation as opposed to attunement last time,and
you mentioned an emotional,grief, fear model. Can you tell me about this? Well, essentially an attunement and an initiation are a little bit different. With attunements, you get a taste of the energy, and you can pass them on from one person to the next; an attunement forms a kind of horizontal link from one person to another. What we focus on in the class is more of a vertical link, so that you can connect directly with source. A horizontal link does also happen, spontaneously, but the vertical link means that you have a much stronger connection to source, to the creator, and therefore you have a much deeper understanding of the energy. Also, by not putting the focus on an attunement process or on the lineage, you don’t become dependent on your teacher. Initiation is something that no one can really give you. You make a connection, we support the process and initiation. In many other systems, teachers use an attunement because that’s the way they have learned to work with the frequencies of the energy, and therefore everyone gets an attunement when they go to a class. But it doesn’t always have to come in the form of a recipe. So initiation is something that people are aiming for when they come to a class? Well many people come to have that experience, you know deep inside everyone wants to make that connection with source, so one of the things we do in the class is help to open our heart to what we call All Love because when we open our hearts to All Love we make our connection to source stronger. So the model is that you have emotions such as grief and fear, and
when you come through those to experience All Love, you then make a connection to source? Well, yes. All our emotions are attached and cycled. By going into these emotions, you experience them fully, and that’s when you come full circle into love. It’s like you’re not going to really completely understand love until you experience grief or loss or anger, and experience love as well. All these are tied together to eventually give us unconditional love. A lot of people will ignore some of the emotions that don’t feel good, and by doing that, some of the pieces are lacking, because the anger gives you that fire, that passion that allows us to love even more strongly, to love more. Some practitioners take an eclectic approach, utilising other systems in conjunction with Seichim. Why do you think that is? Well, when people make a connection to source, they are going to want to feel that it is unique; they want to make that theirs in some way. Which is what we teach and encourage. What happens sometimes is that, having made it personal to themselves, people try to make a system out of it. But, generally speaking, working with our class provides seeds for people. They may end up connecting with other types of symbols, some people even connect with archetypal deities and then they start to say, ‘This is what I am comfortable with,’ so then they create a system which will attract people of similar minds. But I tend not to focus in on a lot of that because again, once you start naming the energy, you start limiting it. Like some groups out there, that say, ‘Oh, Seichim, the guardian of that is Sekmet, the Goddess Sekmet,’ and another will say, ‘No, it’s Isis,’ and another will say, ‘No, it’s Quan Yin.’ So what they do is break it all down into groups, and actually, although all these people are having a very valid experience, there isn’t one single guardian of the energy. It’s very, very flexible. The energy will come in any form that you’re comfortable with; for a Christian, it will come in the form of Jesus; for a Buddhist, it will come in the form of Buddha. So, instead of sticking to one particular archetypal form, I just keep it very general rather than focussing in on one or the other. In a class I may have one woman who will say, ‘Oh, I see Sekmet” and another will say, ‘Oh, I see Isis” and another will say they see something else and it really depends upon what they are comfortable with. I have one lady experi7
encing the whole thing with Angels now, that’s what she is comfortable with. Do you see the energy as a means of remembering who we are, through a connection to source? A couple of people have spoken to me about it, in conjunction with the past life aspect. Is this just another way of experiencing the energy or is this how you see it? That’s a part of it, the All Love which comes from a Sufi tradition. They do a dance, we also do it in some of this work as well, where it is called Zikher, it is also spelt with a “D” – with the Arabic alphabet there are different ways it can be translated and also in Arabic they will pronounce their Zs and Ds differently, depending on the dialect. So this is the dance of all love? Well, the All Love we work with, some of that work came from the Sufis, who were in Egypt and in a sense that energy that they were working with came from Egyptian times, so it evolved in their style. Now what I’ve done is kind of taken their style and molded it back to a form that we are comfortable with and that I find most Westerners comfortable with. So, you said Zikher means … Remembrance, yes. You know, people do all this meditation, and spiritual work and everything, and somehow find God, or find enlightenment. In the Sufi tradition it’s there; all you need do is remember, it’s that simple to remember. You know that every night we go to heaven; we go into an enlightened state every night, we just don’t remember. So if you can’t remember, then just begin to allow yourself to remember, and every night you will have that experience and bring it back. I have read about two other people, Elizabeth Haich and Earlyne Chaney, who have had an initiation while spending time in the pyramid. Had you heard about other people having a similar experience to yours? Well definitely, I was interested in it because I had heard about Napoleon spending the night there and having a vision, as well as possibly Alexander the Great – I had heard that this was something that happened to them and so I was attracted to it. Other people have gone there and had experiences as well. Not all of the people have come back and begun to teach what they experienced, and not all have been able to put it out there as I have. Of course since my story and other stories have come out it has attracted 8
others to do the same thing You do hear of people saying, ‘I had an experience in the pyramid,’ or ‘I spent an hour in the pyramid and now I am teaching Seichim.’ You know, its possible, that they are teaching some form of that. However, with what I am currently teaching, my experience in the pyramid is just a very small part of it, so those people couldn’t possibly be teaching the whole range of what I am doing now. I do feel that the early experience I had was what I call pilgrimage, and part of that is that you’re developing along the way. Before I went to the pyramid, I was working with the energy to a certain degree. Going to the pyramid was something I had always wanted to do, since I was a child, and when I did go, it focussed a lot of my awareness at that point in time; things all worked together, resulting in that experience. And a person can do this with other experiences, it is done in major religions. For example, Muslims want to go to Mecca, and when they go to Mecca, they have a religious experience; if you’re Hindu, you can go to a sacred mountain. We put a lot of energy in these points of time, and it turns out that when you reach them, you have a spiritual experience. It has a lot to do with that in the pyramid. I’ve had much greater experiences since then, you know, it’s just not the pyramid, people can have that without the pyramid. So it was really like a catalyst? Yes, the pyramid helped support that.
I have also read that during the Enlightenment, there were in fact tours to the pyramid for that reason, it was quite a big thing during the 16th century. No I hadn’t heard that, but I can imagine. A lot of the Masonic teachings talk about this. Yes, that is very true. A lot of it ended up in England. There were very strong Egyptian connections with the crusaders and Masons. You have spoken about a few people who were quite critical when your story came out and one lady in fact did a background check on you. How did you feel about that, did she actually approach you and question you directly or was this all done behind the scenes? Oh, she does a lot of stuff behind the scenes, you know, one particular lady has always been quite critical of just about anything I do but she was that way with everyone so I wasn’t completely singled out. What happened was that she wanted to teach Seichim, and, because not everyone knew that I was the one who had started it, there was a kind of a vacuum at one point. I wasn’t promoting or putting out large advertisements or things like that, so, many people thought that they could become a teacher of this system. Even once I got onto the internet, which gave me free access to speak and let everyone know, there was a very, very small group of people, maybe three or four, who decided that they would try to say that I
hadn’t done the things that I said I had done. For the most part, they weren’t very successful – mainly because what I had said was essentially true. I have never really met any of these people, you know, one of them lives only two hours away, yet hasn’t ever spoken to me directly or come to any of my classes. Almost everything was done behind my back. One woman signed up for my course, my one year course and caused problems in the class and it got worse and so I had to ask her to leave, she just wasn’t getting along with anybody and also she didn’t pay me for the class, so you know, finally I said, ‘Ok, time to go.’ So can you tell me a little more about how it was that you got to the pyramid? I know that you were in the Peace Corp and you were even held hostage for a time while in the Peace Corp, sort of a story in itself I think. Yes, I think we’ll save that for another interview – but, during the Peace Corp time, it gave me a lot of experience of other cultures and it gave me a way to let go of stuff that was going on with myself. You know, for four years of my life, I lived out of a back pack. I was able to meditate up to eight hours a day if I wanted to, usually a minimum of four hours a day, so it gave me time to really work on myself. During that time I took the opportunity to go to Egypt and I also went to many other countries as well you know. So it all kind of fit together as a whole you know, going to Yemen for a while, which was a kind of isolated Islamic country and then Egypt and then a chance to go into Zaire, Africa and eventually when I did another two years, I went to Nepal, spent time in India and then in the Tibetan areas. Eventually I came back and worked in the Sudan for another year, for ‘Save the Children,’ in the refugee crisis. So it really gave me a wide, wide range of experiences, and I met many interesting people. So you are not sure why you were the person that had this experience, other than that it was really part of your own self-discovery? Do you have any thoughts about why it needed to be rediscovered? Is it because it’s not just something that is within people, but that there is something they have to do? I think it is something that is inside of everybody and there are people out there teaching different methods of self-discovery and this is one of them. There is a lot of transition of the planet going on right now in awakening.
So it does require some sort of action from the individual? Well, it is the case of any personal growth, it requires some sort of action – whether it is action in “being” or not. For the most part, people tend to think, ‘Yes, I’m going to look for something,’ whether that is inside or outside of themselves. Self-discovery is a combination of both really. Well, yes, I guess, a physical as well as emotional thing. So what are the reasons you don’t promote yourself out there, for people to see? Well, for example, Dr Usui is promoted enormously, to the extent that many people worship or even deify him, and it may not have been his wish to be revered in this way, yet other people have taken the decision for him. So how would you want to be remembered, or how would you like the system to be remembered, in sixty or seventy years time? Well, I certainly wouldn’t want to be deified! It’s interesting to see how other people have been kind of elevated after they have died. Look at Van Gogh; he wasn’t even respected that much when he was alive, but look at his paintings now, they’re worth millions. People definitely get deified along the way, and I can see that even in a lifetime. When I was in Yemen, I had a few little experiences and then later on I heard about some great American Guru that lived in the same area I did and found out later that it was actually me! But you know, people like to deify people, you know, with statues all over the place, Christ wouldn’t have
expected to see himself on crosses you know, not that I am comparing myself to them, but to use Dr Usui as an example, he probably wouldn’t have agreed with the way in which he has been deified in the Reiki world. I think it is important for people to make the connectionthemselves and work with the energy and you know, you can respect your teachers and all, but they are definitely not Gods. You know, I’m a normal person. I of course make my share of mistakes with my life. Is Seichim something that the Egyptian people are themselves using in modern times, or do you think that it was lost to them too? A lot of this was very secretive and not shared for the masses at all and that is changing now. Now it is out there for the people. Is it something they are practicing in Egypt now? No, but I think there is a small movement growing and people are remembering and kind of having it happen. I’ve heard that somebody wants to write a book about it. But once again, there might be an Egyptian who will see that this is something that is popular in America right now, or popular in Europe, and then say, ‘Well, it’s Egyptian, so I will become the expert on it,’ and so you have to be kind of careful of that. The same thing is happening with Reiki in Japan right now, all of a sudden there are some experts in the Japanese in the Reiki field that don’t actually have much more training than normal Americans but all of a sudden they are Japanese experts. Do you see Seichim as part of your lifestyle, part of who you are and what you do? Well, it has definitely been integrated into my life and I hope that it can be integrated even more. But you wouldn’t consider it to be a religion? No, it can work with any kind of religion. But it was never really meant to be a religion of any sort. So it’s a healing system rather than a belief system or religion? Well, as I said, any religion can use anything we have in the particular system we are developing; it’s just going to enhance their own system. You don’t want to incorporate any particular image of a God or Goddess? No, we don’t culturalise it in any way or deify it. 9
INTRODUCTION TO Q&A. When Phoenix (Summerfield) first started to teach Seichim, I gave my support and encouraged her 100%, I did not get involved with trying to define what Seichim was or is, I just allowed it to be what ever each person found it to be for themselves. Once I discovered the Internet, I found that there were may people discussing Seichim and its origins. After joining in on those discussions, I was pretty muched flamed and roasted : ) Some of the folks, knew who I was and other did not. I enjoyed being anonymous, however those days are over. A lesson I did learn is that if I do not speak up and share the History of how Seichim was developed and what I am currently teaching,someone else will do it for me. Each of us have our own experience with Seichim and I do not wish to define what Seichim is for anotherperson. What I have found since being on the Internet, how fast information can travel. Once I posted a very brief sketchy history, it began to pop up all over the Internet. I do feel that much of the information has touched many and for that I feel very good about it. In some cases much of what I have written has been misunderstood, it is not that easy to express in written word what has been experienced. I was so excited about the potential of the Internet, yet quite naive about the vastness and wide varietyof people of the Internet. What I found was that for every few people who were glad that I began to come out, there were those who preferred that I was in some far off Monastery in Tibet never to be heard from. After all they had already defined what Seichim was for themselves and really did not want to here what I had to say. I have met some reallywonderful people from the Internet who were instrumental in supporting what I had to teach, together we all have planted the seeds of those mutual visions, thankyou you know who you are. There have also been individuals who have done their best to be critical and antagonistic, that is all part of life and the duality that we live in. The one lesson that I have learned that I do not speak up and begin to define SKHM in some form someone else will do it for me. This is in many ways is a paradox, because once SKHM is defined it begins to add limitations to what it can become. Patrick Ziegler 10
With Patrick Ziegler
Q: What does Isis have to do with SKHM? A: I can only give my hypothetical reason. Most of the early Seichimteachers were women. There is a woman named Deepa Slatter who lives in Australia who is very much into the Goddess energy, and may be the one responsible for the term, she also had a student Mary Shaw who also was an early teacher of Isis Seichim. By giving Source a female personality it heightens the females self esteem. And allows for deeper feeling of comfort and strength for many women. The same can be said for males and male deity images. While looking for Goddess role models, Isis is one of the best. She is Egyptian and SKHM has an Egyptian heritage so the two were matched up and then it was called Isis Seichim. Evolving out of the same group also came Sekhmet who has also been called the guardian of Sekhem by many. SKHM can take on any personality a person feels comfortable and connected with with. For many women they are more comfortable with a female deity, so this is what is experienced.
and then I had an "E" over the "I M" and I had written it about 4 or 5 different ways. I didn't know myself how to write it. It started getting this "Say Sheem" type of pronunciation from T'Om. We were only together a short period of time and really communicated very little. It was mostly through mail. So when he left, he then had an Indian teacher who had heard of the word before, but they pronounced it "Saysheem." And the teacher told him of a group of people in India who practiced Saysheem and that's why he continued calling it Saysheem. Phoenix, I believe I think her pronunciation was a little different that I think she called it like "Say Kem" ....(Interjection by Diane Shewmaker): "Say Keem" is what passed down to me...(back to PZ) Yes, I think "Say Keem" was how she pronounced it. I was actually on the phone with her somewhat, too, so I think she switched the pronunciation when she heard how I would say it. Again, the way I feel it is to be said is "Se Khem" which is very Arabic. But I still even today say "Say Kem" because it is a lot of work to go "KH". We don't have the KH sound in our language.
Q: Patrick, how did the name come in terms of spelling it, i.e., SKHM, Sekhem, Seichim, Seichem and all the different variations. A: You need to understand this was channeled to me. Even during the channeling, I kept asking Christine (Gerber) how it was spelled and she would say it was SKHM. So when I went back and looked at my notes, I had "S E I C H" and then had an "I"
Q: What is the difference between SEICHIM, SEKHEM, AND SKHM? A: If you would like a very quick, and I mean quick overview here it is. Seichim was the Original spelling as I taught it. It was taught all by word of mouth so sometimes Seichem was used. The early versions were taught with Reiki. Sekhem was a different spelling for "Life force energy" used by Egyptologists and popularized by Robert Masters.
I choose not to use the spelling Sekhem as not to cause confusion. Several years ago I began to use the spelling SKHM it is simple and straight forward and it's more true to the original spelling. This change took place along with the change in the Structure of how Seichim was taught.
Q: Do you consider this energy to be a form of Reiki? Or is it outside of Reiki? A: I feel that through the connection I made when I was in Egypt, I was drawn to Reiki because the Reiki energy and the structure around Reiki was important for me to learn. They have been bonded together. The energies are as one. I don't separate them. So if somebody comes to me and ask if I do Reiki, I say, "yes, I carry the Reiki energy." I don't separate that out. If somebody wants a Reiki master attunement, I do give it to them and I let them know I don't really do it this way anymore. I'll be glad to do it for you if you want the symbols. I actually refer them to Diane Stein's book.
Q: What is your take on distant attunments? A: It has been my experience that each person has their own way of receiving the energy best. Some people tend to prefer the distant attunement while others prefer the in person ones. For those that have taken a SKHM class they are aware that my approach to attunements has changed considerably since Seichim was first introduced. Early attunements were based on a Reiki model that used symbols, each symbol representing a new degree. This system created a dependency on a master attuning the student to each new degree or facet. I really had to ask what is really going on with this process. In the end their were a few individuals who claimed to be the only ones who could attune others to these facets, this has brought about much of the disharmony within the Seichim community. Each had claims that theirs was a higher frequency. The conclusions that I have come to except is that it not so much the "Master" that holds the higher frequency, but the receivers ability to be able to receive it when they are able to receive it. There are several factors involved in the process which I now call a SKHM - khet, which means SKHM in the body. The first just the willingness to receive. Trusting is a major factor as well. If a person does not trust the teacher then the attunement process may be hampered. This trust has the same factor as to whether an attunement is an in person or distant attunement. If one does not Trust the distant attunement then there experience will be different from an in person attunement. There has been much discussion on many Reiki boards over the validity of distant attunements. We do know that many people have had great success with them. Hey, if someone can have a miraculous healing by watching a TV evangelist, why not receive an attunement? For me it come down to the individual being trusting and having faith that it is all possible. I have come to learn and experience that anything is possible, this leaves the door open for a miracle to happen spontaneously. between an attunement and an reattunement. A: A re-attunement reinforces the need for another attunement. In many situations a person may feel that the attunement that they received may not have worked or has possibly worn off. This is a common feeling that a percentage of people may experience from taking a Reiki or Seichim class. Unusually there is what I would describe as a bell curve effect that takes place during a class, out of a group there is a small percentage of people who tend to have a very strong connection to the energy. After taking one class there experience is so strong, they feel it is their destiny to teach. Then there is the majority of the class that usually have a great experience; and continue for some time, however, continue to search out other methods and classes. Then at the bottom of the bell curve there is usually at least one person who feels that the class was a waste of time, or quite possibly may have left the class early. This is a typical class dynamic. The percentage and amount of the curve varies from one class to another. 11
Q: What is the (real) difference
Usually it's the folks in the bottom half of the curve feel that they just did not get it and have been convinced that quite possibly that their teacher may not have done the attunement correctly. In the early years of Reiki it was taught that if you showed anyone the symbols or did not charge the specified amount you would lose your Reiki. Currently there are also teachers who claim that if you are attuned to another system you will then not be able to channel the energy that their system supports. Therefore a re-attunement would be necessary. Their is some truth to all of this, especially if that is what you believe. Once the element of doubt has entered into the consciousness, the student will have a difficult time accepting what is possible and may not apply him/herself enough to know what works and what does not. The key to energy work is to use it. Keep using it, and through experiencing the results you will no longer feel the need to have someone dictate to you or confirm to you that you have it or not. The energy it's self will become the teacher. Sure taking attunements and learning from others experience is important and otherpeoples experience may bring about a great deal of "inspiration"; see it as that. Getting back to the re-attunements. It has been my experience that what a person experiences is very much dependent on that person receiving the attunement. During a class a person is prepared somewhat what to expect and for the most part that is what is experienced, in some cases a person will allow themselves to experience more than what is expected and in some cases the attunement is not what they were expecting. It really is a very interesting dynamic that takes place. On one side I would say keep getting attunements until you feel absolutely sure you have gotten it, then on the other hand just trust you have it : ). In both cases realize that it is all dependent on you and your ability to
Khet (Initiation) the crown feels like a flower opening to the light. The best way to describe the relationship between the Lotus and the Pyramid is expressed in the SKHM Scepter Shenu. The SKHM Scepter Shenu represents how the Universal White Light passes through the Pyramid and is transformed into a Radiant Spectrum of the Rays. This is the essence of SKHM. The Pyramid represents the Universal Trinity; The first Creation of the Rays. The Lotus represents the Crown Chakra opening to receive the Rays as they are radiated into our being.
Q: I am very interested in Sekhem, and have received some attunements. However, I'm not sure about this mantra 'all love.' Where does it come from/ how was it arrived at as the mantra for Sekhem? What does it mean? I don't resonate with it at the moment. I'd like it explained to me a bit more please. If I don't like it, is there another mantra I can use to get similar results from the meditation, etc?:) I like 'Sa Sekhem Sahu' A: I have found that Love and the heart is the best form of meditation. The key is actually feeling the feeling of love when you say it. If it is just a mantra where it is repeated, I would not expect it to resonate with many people. We do a 2 day class and at the end of the class most people really become that All Love. If you connect with 'Sa Sekhem Sahu' by all means use that, but really take a close look at what it is you find attractive about it. You will find that the form of Sekhem that I teach is not similar to many of the other forms out there. We do not put a strong emphasis on certain cultural practices or a particualr God/Goddess, That does not mean that you will not experience them, as you will experience what you are most comfortable with. Of all the words in the world "Love" may be the most recognized throughout the world, yet it is probably the most misunderstood.
Q: I read somewhere that you were given the "ALL LOVE" mantra from the Sufies you trained with after your Pyramid experience? A: The Sufis did not speak english. The Mantra that they gave to me was Allah repeated while I focused on Shiek Brahanis Image. I told them that I was not interested in Meditating on a man's image. After the discussion, which I suggested he agreed that meditatating on the light would a suitable subsitute. Afterwards as I was meditating the words shifted from Allah to All Love. This helped me have a much clearer focus on my heart center and was much more effective.
Q: What is Sufism? A: Sufism is the Mystical branch of Islam. For the most part the Sufi was considered to be the Hermit out in the desert. The word comes from the Arabic word for wool. Sufis typically had only their wool robe. Much of what Sufism is today is a deeply devoted, and what I would call a more open minded offshoot of Islam. I first met the Sufi's when I was in Cairo, I had spent the night in the great pyramid and the following morning I was lead to a Sufi group by a traveling German woman. I was still having energetic effects from my experience in the Kings chamber and what the Sufis had to teach was a wonderful complement. My personal feeling is that much of the Mysticism from the Sufi Group that I stayed with had come from a very strong ancient Egyptian heritage. The only way for any spiritual/healing practice to survive would be for it to integrate with Islam.

receive. Q: I see that you work with the lotus (shenu and meditation) so where and how exactly did you include the lotus, because it is not part of your pyramid experience, and maybe it is a part of some other system? A:The Lotus is an integral part in Egyptian Symbolism relating to a new awakening. During a SKHM12

SKHM TEACHER PROGRAM
I would like to introduce our SKHM Teachers Training program. At the core of our program is experience. I feel that direct experience is the best teacher. For the most part SKHM is not a lecture based class, but more developing a strong relationship with the SKHM energy itself and allowing the energy to become your best teacher. Our SKHM teachers play more of a support and facilitation role. It is through this support that allows a person to feel comfortable enough to receive a SeKhem-Khet “Initiation”. True Initiations come from within, when an Initiation comes from an outside influence, it will sometimes create an unhealthy dependency that will keep the person looking to the outside or to someone else to provide the next level. Once a person wakes up and realizes that they already have the spark within and through their awareness they can ignite the flame within they feel much more confidant in being able to make a direct connect to source and support others in that process. One of the major keys is opening the heart to All Love. Currently our Teachers program involves experiencing at least three SKHM classes and giving and receiving eight sessions on a personal level. It is through these experiences a person will make a natural connection to the energy. They will also see first hand how each person makes their own personal connection to the energy. The key is to learn how to create a safe place. Our program currently is tailored to each individual and that way it does allow an individual to grow at his or her own pace. Our SKHM teachers program allows each individual one on one guidance and experience to support the group Initiation process as well as conducting one on one personal support and distant support for healings and Initiations. We do see each person who is involved in the program as part of our SKHM world family. Patrick Ziegler

FEEDBACK ny or trust, anything our heart could ask for. When we really open up to let her in, we can go as far as bliss and ecstasy. The more we invite her, the more we ‘get’ but what we get isn’t owned by anybody. We can share it, vibrate it, but we can never restrict it or control it, for it knows no hierarchy, no dogma’s, no rules. SKHM is a living energy and comes with no manual, no limitations to go wherever our hearts need her to be. SKHM comes to us and for us, directly from source. But we also can recognise her in the eyes of people who know her intimately, we can feel her in their hands, taste her love in their supporting words, hear her music in the beat of their loving harts. The well of SKHM is endless, waiting to hug us , inside out, with All Love. All Love. Thank you for reading, All Love, From me to you. Loesja.
It’s not easy to write about SKHM without limiting it’s beauty and power by using the mental energy of thoughts and put them into words. Every expression I can think of feels like not enough, not really telling what my heart wants to say, neither what my mind can understand. I am going to give it a try anyway. It is my deep wish to touch you, somehow, with the lovely energy of All Love, to share this Love with you. About a year ago I had my first experience with SKHM during an amazing workshop with Patrick and Michael. After that I had been talking to my friends for months about this experience and when a few of them tried it for themselves they said to me: “You have been telling us so much about it, but in fact we didn’t have a clue. We understood your words and your enthusiasm and we saw your happiness, we thought we new, but we new nothing before we experienced the SKHM – energy for ourselves.” So SHKM can’t be explained, it must be experienced. After my third SKHM workshop now (addicted? Yes!) I think to myself: ‘Hey, you are starting to come a little closer to it… ’ Don’t let this discourage you, you don’t need time to let SKHM into your life or to benefit from it. It happens on the spot, the very first time the energy touches you, the relationship is there… love at first sight. Magnificent and maybe a little scary at the same time. Relationships need time to grow, need to be discovered and sometimes we keep falling in love over and over again. We come closer and closer, but still this relationship can feel brand new every single day. SHKM is always brand new to me. In fact, this is what SKHM is all about: falling in love with Love itself. Do you remember how it feels to really, really fall in love? Everything changes, everything is fresh, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is great to look forward to. You try to share your feelings with the world. They say: ‘Yeah, I understand…’, and you feel : I’ll never be able to really share it at all… and then the big silence comes in and it doesn’t matter, because you just feel, just love, you just are … fully, totally loving YOU. That’s what SKHM does to us: it helps us to become more US. Surely SKHM is exiting – as a divine lover she makes us hungry for life again. But at the same time SKHM will be at our side especially where our life is hard on us and hurts : here she will comfort us like a mother, he will support us like a father, it can be anything for us and anybody we need. SKHM can be our teacher, our guide, our coach, our way to transformation. It’ll challenge us to get up again, to stand in our strength, to be our beauty, to show our true colours, to go on, to be and do the best we can, to become what we forgot to be, to grow into our courage and out of our fears. It helps to heal us, to become whole again. SHKM is also a fully equipped cleaning staff: it’ll clean up our emotional cellar, and our mental attic,… no, in fact we will do the cleaning all by ourselves, but the support, the feeling of this strong presence of unconditional, limitless love, helps us to do anything we couldn’t do without it. SKHM brings us any quality we need: maybe patience or joy, harmo-

The first time I came into contact with SKHM was at Michael’s place 4 years ago. I can’t remember exactly what happened then, but I do know that I felt so much hurt around my heart and after that had gone, it felt like I was standing in a deep lake and everywhere around me was that beautiful purple colour, so peaceful and comforting, that felt really great. The initiation: Yesterday a lot of emotions had come loose during the SKHM-meditation, a lot of hurt on different places, but I knew I had not yet surrendered myself to the energy. It was very confusing for me. Underneath the feelings that you know, the hurt and pain, are the emotions that come out when you are not in control of yourself, with me that was aggression. And underneath that I found the reason for the problems I now have in my life, which is a lack of trust in people and a lack of trust in my own judgement. I also needed recognition for what had happened to me and I was searching that in the person who had hurt me. Rationally I knew that I would never get that from that person and I also knew that after the things that had happened to me had been become tangible, or spoken out by me, I needed to get recognition, otherwise I couldn’t deal with that. I was so scared and I hesitated whether I would come back the next day, I felt so bad that night, and I could not sleep. But I did go! Sundaymorning we started with toning. Michael felt it was important to give my hurt a sound. We made a circle and I stood in the middle, and everybody helped me, it was hard for me to do that, they all toned with me en held me, and they helped me to make a sound, after a little while it went better. Graham was great, he was standing in front of me, and I felt the vibration of his voice touching something in me, and I started crying and it felt like my body was falling backwards, Michael said, that’s ok., just let yourself fall backwards, but I was afraid to, everybody helped me and then I laid down on the floor and Michael asked me where the hurt was, it was near my heart and he told me to breathe light into that area, to the hurt, then it started shifting, it went down to my abdomen. Underneath the pain, which was black in the form of a triangle, I saw lightblue water and then it went up to my belly, I saw a lot, I saw my father and my mother, all kinds of emotions went through me, I was feeling so cold and my body was trembling I think, I felt the energy going through my body. Yesterday I had dealt with some of the anger I 18 felt, in the end I felt that against my mother and not against the one that had hurt me. Yesterday I also felt a tremendous fear near my heart, I saw a chamber on the right of me, a sort of wall in which a round entry was, in it it was black and I knew I had to go in there, but I was afraid to, I had the sense that if I stepped into the room I would fall down, unendingly. Yesterday I didn’t go in. When the energy had gone to my belly I felt all of the energy concentrating there, it turned greyishblack, like a thundercloud and it was turning and it hurt really bad, Graham felt the hurt in my belly. Every time I was drifting off and Michael kept talking to me I think, I don’t remember exactly, I was so focussed on the energy, It felled like I was being dragged down by it, but when Michael called my name, I came back, he told me to breathe light towards the pain and to keep contact with the source of light. I did that and then the energy shifted to my heart and then all of a sudden I was in the room I couldn’t step into yesterday, something or somebody was supporting me in there and it wasn’t black in there, but purple, like the lake I had been in before. Michael asked what I saw, and I saw my father and mother and my two brothers standing in front of me. Michael asked what I wanted to say to my father, but I couldn’t, I could say it to the group, but not to him, but everybody supported me. Nino was holding my left hand and Theresa was holding my right hand, Michael kept talking to me and then I just started screaming to him and somebody, I think it was Loesja, asked what I wanted to say to my mother and I finally was able to say to them what I had to say. I wasn’t even angry anymore, I just felt so sad, and for the first time I felt sorry for everything that had happened to me, I deserved better than this, for the first time I felt valuable. I don’t know exactly what I had screamed, but it felt so liberating, I knew now why I wasn’t able to trust people and why I had never trusted my own judgement. Michael told me to keep breathing in light, but that went automatically, all of a sudden I felt a huge stream of light coming in, gold coloured and while that happened, something was changing in the room, my parents and brothers, who first were standing in front of me, like a blockage were starting to drift away from me and shifting to the left, getting smaller and smaller, until they were very far away from me, very small in size. After that I just felt so peaceful and loved by that golden sun (God), that was filling my body with light. I never felt like this before, it was the most wonderful feeling I had ever felt. The group gave me a little space to let me come to myself, Nino and Theresa were still holding my hands and I felt such a nice energy coming from them. I felt very safe and peaceful. The big difference between Saturday and Sunday, is that Saturday I could not surrender myself to the energy, I still tried to control it too much. Actually I tried that again on Sunday, but I just couldn’t, It felt like all of a sudden the energy had taken over, as if something touched me during the toning and that made the connection with the source of energy and then it just happened. Now, a week later, a lot has changed for me. It has been rough, I felt sick, was nausea, and all kinds of emotions just went through me and I couldn’t control that. Michael told me just to let it happen and not to worry about it, so I did. I also feel really great at sometimes. But most importantly, I do feel more secure. I can now place all the parts of the puzzle, bits of memory, feelings, dreams and things I saw, and that makes me more secure of myself. During the initiation I had the feeling that I switched places with my family, and that was really important. I feel so much stronger. I never liked to be touched or touch somebody else, or actually I was afraid to, but that’s gone after a SKHM-workshop! I even miss that now, that warmth and feeling of trust. Also, where I used to approach things intellectually when I wanted to make something clear to someone else, I now just say what I feel. As if the breaks you normally have, out of fear of being hurt, are gone. That feels really good. I have a lot to work on still, but I feel I now have a solid foundation within myself, which will help me further, thanks to SKHM. ALJ
FEEDBACK at my kitchen table having yet another coffee, when my daughter (2 1/2) started singing, ALL LOVE, chanting the exact way that we were in Holland, I nearly fell of the chair, had to scratch my ears I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I said nothing, and let her on her merry way. Three days later on the Thursday off she goes again All Love. She hasn't said it since but I thought it was one of those wow moments that I will never forget. I will sit down over the next few days and try and put into words the impact Holland had on me, And you can count me in for a return trip. bye for now Blessing of love and light M. the mad Irish woman hehe
I am often asked out the SKHM Initiation process and what to expect. It is often best to let go of expectations there are many different reactions during the SKHM Initiation. No bells and whistles during an attunement are something that has been discussed often in healing circles. Early on, doing standard “Reiki type attunements” I found that there was a percentage that had a very deep reaction and a percentage that seem to have very little reaction. What I have found is that through the years, is that those people who were more emotionally expressive or just more emotionally open would have a much stronger attunement experience. I also noticed that those with a very strong mental disposition, the results were almost non-existent. Early on I fell into the mental category. It was not until I participated in a Native American Sweat lodge that I began to make a strong connection to how the emotions help open a person up and feel, also at this time I also took some courses in Alchemical Hypnotherapy. During that time I did quite a bit of inner emotional work and found that by going inward and moving out of the head and into the heart, my spiritual experiences increased. What was happening was, that by doing emotional clearing, many old wounds and mental blocks were removed. I found if I was given an attunement at this time the results were more consonantly profound and the energy would have a deeper healing effect. After many years of developing this method I have included emotional clearing as part of my class and the results have been magnificent, almost everyone comes away from the class feeling a strong connection to the energy and many have the most powerful spiritual experience of their life. What I found was happening was people were having what I call a true “Initiation”, meaning that they now could feel a strong connection to source. Initiations are in some ways like an orgasm, when you have one you know it. Each person has their own experience with an Initiation, for some it is quite gentle yet profound, while for others they scream uncontrollably when the energy comes in. The main thing about an Initiation is when you have one, there is no question in your mind that you had one, it will be one of most beautiful experiences of your life. All Love, Patrick
Wow moment Glad to hear from you, I woke up this morning and the first thing I thought of was I must check my mail (lol), being busy lately and not
checking my mail so much, I was sorry to read that a member of your family was directly effected by September 11th, as I am sorry for all those that were effected. Well I have a story that will put a smile on your face. The day after I returned from Holland, I was sitting
Domino effect I had some idea of what I could expect from the workshop but it had more impact on me than I expected. We started off with a meditation on Friday evening, where I felt a very strong connection with a powerful energy I felt the energy coming from above and below en they both merged in my heart! It was very strong en touched me emotionally. I had the feeling of standing in a beam of light, like there was a sun above my head. The connection with the group was very strong, as if we stood together in the sun. The approach of Patrick Zeigler towards healing really appeals to me. With Reiki I learned, that through me I could give another person energy. SKHM is a method that supports another in his "own" energy. It stimulates to retrieve the healing and strength from your self, and for me it feels like a very respectful and loving healing-method. The SKHM energy feels very warm and loving in a human manner. After the first meditation I went home with a very "open" feeling, as if something had touched me in my heart. And off course this was true. Patrick Zeigler also works with overtoning and I've noticed how important it is to give sound to my feelings. When we started to try the over-toning in the group, I found out that it took me a lot of effort to actually make a sound and I really had to pull myself over a threshold. After a reluctant beginning I finally 19
got into it and, …what an amount of energy comes free! As if everything that's stuck in your body, is finally allowed to come out. It gave me a very liberated feeling and because of that I had a better contact with my body. The energy in the group was very strong, and as a result from one healing, one by one healings followed, like a domino effect. Everybody supported each other very naturally and gave everybody the space needed to feel what was happening. It felt very safe for me to be vulnerable, and the support of the group was very loving. I went into an issue with my father in which I succeeded (at last) to ask him what I needed from him. I really went into something for myself and afterwards I felt my own power and ability to give myself what I need. It was a very special and most of all, loving weekend, and after the closing when I stood at the Tram-stop, I had the feeling I could embrace (hug) the WHOLE WORLD. So, ….really ALL LOVE! Everybody in the group, Michael and Patrick, thanks, for this wonderful experience! S.
My Fast, Short, Extreme, Meditation experience! (In Dutch he used the four letters of skhm for every word: see Dutch lines.) Mijn Snelle Korte Heftige Meditatie ervaring My Fast Short Awsome Meditation Experience I feel my blood-pressure rise and my heart is pumping in my throat. I hear the iron wheels squeaking and bit-by-bit I am lifted upwards. The point of gravity is in my stommage now and at that point I am producing some strange noises. At that moment I feel like leaving the cart because I'm afraid I will not live trough this "ride". But it is too late, and before I can get a hold of something, I am whirling down at an incredible speed and at the same time I am going up again as fast as I went down or even faster. Mountains, flowers, people, colours, stars everything flashes by me like the video clip of Madonna, Ray Of Light. I feel the adrenaline (or is it the SKHM energy?) flying through every part of my body and I just have to laugh. 20
The energy seeks an exit out of my body and chooses my hands, which take on the most unnatural postures! When I've finally survived three loopings and the "corkscrew", I gently fall back in my chair and awake with a big smile and a nice feeling in my abdomen after one of the craziest roller-coaster rides I ever experienced and which you are likely never to encounter at a fair. Are there any other questions what SKHM energy can do with you????? D.
A wonderful weekend We had a wonderful weekend with Patrick in Holland. My head is sometimes very hot, seemed like fever. I think, I am doing things more with my heart.There is a feeling or something like a sound very far away. I don't recognize it yet. Sometimes confusing. Sometimes I feel wonderfull..... It was the second big spiritual experience in my life. This initiation felt emotional and fysical. There is still that feeling, very beautifull in my heart O.
More insights I enjoyed the SKHM weekend very much, it was great to be with this group. There are a lot of things that have changed for me. My feelings have changed in a positive way, I feel more. Also my intuition. I sleep a little better, more peaceful, before this iI couldn't sleep that good. I have more insights on how to do things, things that I want to change. But I have to work a little more on those. Also the things that are still inside of me, that didn't emerge, I want to solve. J.
Warm blanket The workshop given by Patrick Zeigler on 17-19 March was a very special experience for me. From the beginning of the workshop there was a special feeling that felt a warm blanket was covering me. The healings where very intense and many things came out of the group. But helping eachother gives a very special feeling; very warm. Michael I thank you that you did so much trouble to get Patrick here with us, thank you Patrick! R.
A very good experience The weekend was a very good experience for me. The group was doing a good job, it was nice to be with the group. Everyone was so nice to each other, they were as one. The things that I've within me came bit by bit out. But I still have to work with that too get it out. J.
Extraordinary Weekend. Some reflections on my experience with the SKHM weekend! I have to start to say that Patrick Zeigler is a very good teacher and a special man. He can show you things about yourself that you had forgotten about yourself (or wanted to forget). He leaves the choice to open up and deal with yourself (on a kind level) to you. His natural "fatherly" compassionate warmth radiates from him at such a level that it's nice to be in his presence. His expertise in working with, and moving of, Emotional-energy is extraordinary, yet gentle! The toning and overtoning techniques and the way Patrick utilises these, make you feel that you can use and create them (which is the case) yourself. Nobody works with energy like Patrick does, at least not in Holland (the Netherlands) or Europe. The
energy that comes over and through you when Patrick makes the connection to Source, and the Self, is something you have to experience in order to be able to explain it to someone else. The emphasis is on opening up the Heart-center and the connection to Source. A lot has happened. A lot has been healed in all people who attended the group. It has brought me and the group, closer to ourselves. A truly, inspiring, educational and "Healing" weekend! Everybody is still glowing, thanks! M.
Emotional vibration Dear Hosts, teachers and attendants/friends of the SKHM-workshop, Apologies, apologies and apologies for my late contribution to this information/experience-site. First of all I wish to express my gratitude to all of you for being there with me. Especially I enjoyed the "togetherness" or as you may call it the "all love"-feeling of this close and warm-hearted group. On the first day I already felt the positive warm attitude of all attendants and what struck me was the fact that before it all started that evening I had a strong urge to hold the person ,who later during the first session was in a deep emotional bond with her mother. The second day again a special warm-hearted day, when we were ‘tuned in’ my emotions were awakened by someone who experienced an unwillingness to be born in this world almost at the same time I felt very cold and lost and I cried my eyes out while I visualised or better said I saw myself as a small tiny light in the very BLACK cosmos, awfully alone . Some time lateron I was guided by two Angelhands (two of my fellowworkshoppers) to the present and eventually I got this warm conforting feeling. The bond of the group became more intense, giving more support to each other. The third day was very exciting in the extra-dimensional as well as in the emotional capacity of each member of this particular workshop . After the initiating tuning-in my 21
deepest feeling of grieve were freed by a member who had the strong need to come closer to her father and wishes to hold him. Being on the same level of emotional vibration I really saw my deceased son and spoke with him, this experience gave me many tears and later freedom. I was not the only one who had seen my son also a fellow-workshopper has seen my son, telling her that he loves my wife and myself. During this day more members of our group had similar experiences or felt and saw themselves connected to the ray of energy being present at that moment in the workshop-room. The INFINITY- sign in thoughts and movement gave us all that overwhelming feeling to hold the closest soul in the room. Like fellow-workshoppers I felt that I could embrace all present and many more. Love you all
FEEDBACK we still feel that homoeopathy is a stronger force than Reiki, though. Physical ailments seem to react more quickly to homoeopathy than to Reiki. In June I took my Reiki II and I must say it has greatly enhanced the power of the energy I have been able to channel, especially on the mental and emotional levels. People I have been treating tell me they feel more energetic, even though particular physical complaints sometimes have not really improved. What helps a lot, though, is sending Reiki into the homoeopathic medicines! When Anje showed me a flyer Michael had sent her about SKHM I felt I had to go for it. This seemed an opportunity too good to miss. SKHM with Patrick Zeigler, straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak! The bit about toning and overtoning especially appealed to me, because as a singer I experience a good deal of relaxation and energizing from singing Bach, Handel etc. This was the only thing I was a bit disappointed about: we didn't spend as much time on this as I had hoped. Still, the weekend was a super experience: I had a pretty violent healing (just you read H.'s piece), saw my spiritual guide (who afterwards told me the healing had been most beneficial and that SKHM was a very good thing for me to be working with!), met a dear deceased friend from Scotland, had a wonderful experience on top of Ben A'an, overlooking Loch Katrine, was able to be of some little help in a healing that H. underwent, got to know a bunch of wonderful people, learnt some more about meditating, sound-healing, the infinity dance and even found out that sometimes it's a good thing trains don't run on time! Afterwards I found I was able to weave SKHM and Reiki together. When channeling a distance healing I now feel a lot more warmth than before. I really break out into a sweat now! All in all I it was a great weekend and I want to thank all of you for having been there, sharing experiences and giving each other
A super experience Reactions on the August SKHM Workshop with Patrick Zeigler Dear Michael, Patrick and all the others who joined in the SKHMworkshop at Delft on August 4/5/6 It took me some time to collect my thoughts, but now I feel I can look back calmly on a most unexpected experience. I always used to think of myself as well-balanced and not
troubled by any traumas or blocks. If someone had told me a year ago even that I would get involved with Reiki and SKHM, I would have laughed in his face. I was a staunch church-goer and saw no reason why anything should change. Still, about one year ago, somebody told Anje (my wife) and me to have a look at Neale Donald Walsch's (Uncommon) Conversations with God and this was the beginning of a year full of changes. The book was a real eyeopener and it made us realise that we had become more or less automatic churchgoers and that we were not really involved. There turned out to be a lot more to it. Soon after this our eldest son came home with his first real girlfriend and she told us about her mother's experiences with Reiki. This too was an eye-opener. We had been involved with energy-medicine in the shape of homoeopathy, but this was something quite new to us. It appeared that homoeopathy and Reiki have a lot in common. For instance, the lower potencies work on the inner layers of the aura, the higher potencies on the outer ones. We got so fascinated by all this that we both decided to take a Reiki course. We had been told that the Tera Mai type of Reiki was a bit more powerful than the traditional type and so that's what we went for. It turned out to be a very good experience. We both feel it has given us more peace of mind and insight into what really matters in life. On a physical level
ALL LOVE! J. An energetic exchange Reactions on the Vienna Workshop of Feb 3/4-2001 Many breakthroughs were experienced by all, myself included. I had been carrying a very heavy feeling around my heart, chest, shoulders and neck and by the time the workshop was over, the feeling was 22
replaced with lightness and joy. One of many memorable moments for me was at the very end of the workshop when Patrick had us stand in a circle with our individual columns of light and then form a group column in the center into which we could each stand to receive healing. As T mentioned, he went first and then when he was complete and Patrick invited the next person to go into the circle, I jumped in right away as while T was doing his "thing", I had seen in my third eye T and me standing back to back holding hands to bring in the light together. Wow, it was amazing! Quite an energetic exchange went on in he many levels of the column of light both going to the Earth and to Source, plus I experienced several new aspects of the column being opened that are still with me
More to discover Reactions on the Holland workshop 23, 24 &25 Feb. I should have written this reaction on the weekend yesterday, because that's how long my feeling of being in the flow lasted. In the beginning of the weekend I once again realized my frustration on being on this earth. I didn't want to be here. Why, I didn't know. During the rest of the weekend I got quite a few insights, answers, a way to deal with my feeling. The visualizations, the singing, the dancing, the collective energy, all contributed to the endless flow of love and light I felt in the end. The connection between 'down here' and 'up there' was repaired. I can't wait till the next workshop. I feel there is much more to discover in me. That's what this weekend has brought me: insight, hope, love and light.
to be his part as small as possible and stimulates others to find their own way of accessing the energy and using their intuition. Also he does not want to characterize the energy to much as this could create limitations onto the energy. The energy can come in any shape or form as you please or are most comfortable with, there are no limitations. Patrick has got some methods, which are very helpful. During meditations it is not necessary to see clear images and you can just let your imagination and fantasy run wild, be creative. During a meditation which he talked us through, he let us visualise our DNA structure, remodel it in a part of our body of our own choosing and then letting it expand throughout our entire body. Not so long ago I read a article about some research they did with some children in the USA and Japan. These children's DNA structure was shaped in a way which was not yet been ascertained in any human being. These young children not only appeared to be extremely gifted but also immune for several illnesses. I am getting sidetracked a bit here as this research does not have a direct link to SKHM, but anyway, getting back to SKHM I can only be glad to have come in contact with this energy. Two of the best things about it is in my view its simplicity (only one symbol which contains everything and no different levels) and the fact that everybody gets exactly what they need or are able to allow. Again I would like to thank Patrick, Beverly and Michael for their loving and careful approach and furthermore everyone else present at the weekend.
So grateful Here's my testimonial from the workshop. Thank you again! Life's been amazing. I cannot put into words exactly what happened at the workshop, but I know I will never be the same, My life changed during that workshop. I feel as if I have a new body. My aches and pains and heaviness aren't there. I feel as if I lost 100 pounds of burdens. The deep amount of release work that took place is priceless. The peace I feel in my heart mind and soul I can't describe. I'm ready for my new life. I feel so grateful for everyone who attended the workshop on mother's day in Beaverton, Oregon. It was such a safe place. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Beautiful serene love filled space Patrick,bless you for this wonderful experience. I woke this morning around 5 am, my body was a beacon/transmitter, this amazing pure love energy flowing freely, emanating in endless bands from my heart chakra, amazing, words could not describe my joy at this! I have spent the entire day basking in this beautiful serene love filled space, it's awesome. Thank you Much love and light V. B. (the good one):) Cornwall England
In the next issue of
No limitations SKHM Weekend 23,24 en 25 February 2001 Arrived a bit late (flat tire) at the SKHM workshop, which I was going to do for the second time. Again it was very interesting and especially I have the feeling that I understand more about the energy thanks to the again very extensive explanations of Patrick. Patrick's way of working with the energy is to support others to open their channel for the energy themselves. This way is much more satisfying for both parties. There will be less attachments, and the process is more natural. Actually he would like
