What Is Seichim?

Seichim, a word (pronounced "SAY-keem") of unknown origin—but closely related to the ancient Egyptian word sekhem (sxm), which means life-force, or energy—is used to indicate a system of healing that many feel has ancient origins in Tibet. This practice is said to have been handed down from very ancient times.

Seichim is not a religion, although this healing practice is becoming known in all cultures throughout the world. It has a built-in spiritual dimension. Seichim is a unity concept, because it is now accepted globally. Seichim teaches unity and harmony. Seichim is in harmony with nature and can be used to heal plants and trees, people and animals, and can even be used to help purify and harmonize water and air.

Seichim was discovered near the end of the twentieth century by an American man named Patrick Zeigler. He first experienced this energy in 1979–80 while in the Great Pyramid, after which he studied with the leader of Tariqa Burhaniya band of Sufi mystics, Sayyidi Fahruddin Sheikh Mohammed Uthman Abduh al-Burhani (d. 1983). He later developed it into a system of healing that he passed on to others by means of a system of empowerments, or attunements (which he modeled after the Reiki attunements). Various versions of it are now practiced by many around the globe.

After the system was enhanced by Phoenix Summerfield, who added some Egyptian elements to it (and probably even created the system known as Isis Seichim) that eventually led to both Deepa Slater and Helen Belot developing system associated with the goddess Sekhmet. Strangely enough, the Belot system teaches both Seichim and Sekhem as separate energies, but teaches and attunes students to them together. In the Belot lineage, Seichim is said to be connected with the Buddhist deity best known around the world in its female manifestation but its Chinese name, Kuan-yin. Maybe have suspected that this might in fact be a misapprehension, and that the divine being is actually the Saviouress of the World, Green Tara, the embodiment of love and compassion, she who was born of the tear that fell from the face of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara ("Regarder of the Cries of the World"—note that he is in actual fact the Indian male form of the same female
