The Sentinel

March 16, 2005

I woke up just before sunrise. Usually I lay in bed and watch the news for a few minutes, but on this day I was drawn to go to the living room. As I walked down the hallway, a strong floral Egyptian essence filled the room.

As I reached the living room I looked over at the far corner, just passed the huge skylight in the middle of the room. There stood a very tall male dark skinned African looking Sentinel. He carried a staff or rod in his left hand, almost as tall as he was. He stood there staring into space, saying nothing, oblivious to me as we exist is different realities. Egyptian Sentinels are Guardians of the secrets to the Great Pyramid and the alleged Hall of Records under the Sphinx. In the past I have seen them there while remote viewing.

Haram el-Shawaf (The Sentinel), located in south Saqqara in Egypt, is a pyramid complex built by Djedkare Isesi and was originally called Beautiful is Djedkare-Isesi. The complex includes the main pyramid, a satellite pyramid and an associated pyramid which is probably that of his unnamed consort, and is hence known as The Pyramid of the Unknown Queen.

Djedkare Isesi in Greek known as Tancheres from Manetho's Aegyptiaca, was a Pharaoh of Egypt during the Fifth dynasty. He is assigned a reign of twenty-eight years by the Turin Canon although some Egyptologists believe this is an error for thirty-eight years. Manetho ascribes him a reign of forty-four years while the archaeological evidence suggests that his reign actually exceeded thirty-two years. His prenomen or royal name Djedkara means "The Soul of Re Endureth."

He did not, as was customary for his dynasty, build his own sun temple, but did build his pyramid at Saqqara instead of Abusir. This is believed to be a sign that Osiris had now replaced the sun-god Ra as the most popular god. Titles were now thought to hold magical power; their inflation believed to be a sign of a gradual decentralization of power. An entire series of dated administrative papyri from Djedkare's reign, (the Prisse Papyrus at the Louvre, authored by Ptah-hotep), was discovered in Neferirkare's mortuary temple. According to Miroslav Verner, Djedkare's highest Year known date is a Year 22 IV Akhet day 12 papyrus,[3] which would belong anywhere from Year 32 to Year 44 of his reign depending on whether the Cattle Count was Biannual (2 times) or Semi-Biannual (1.5 times).

He is extremely well documented both by the aforementioned Abusir papyri as well as numerous royal seals and contemporary inscriptions; taken together, they indicate a fairly long reign for this king.

His almost complete mummy, along with a badly broken basalt sarcophagus and a niche for the canopic chest, was discovered in his damaged pyramid tomb at Saqqara.

When the time is right, the Messenger will appear.
