Seichim is becoming more and more popular and seems to be popping up everywhere in the energy healing community. But what is Seichim?
Seichim offers energies that are sorely needed in the world today.
Seichim pronounced ‘Say-Keem’ is both a type of energy and also an energy healing practice. Like most energy healing practices, Seichim is not a religion.
The practice of Seichim, as we know it today, was developed by Patrick Zeigler. Patrick is an American who visited Egypt in the late 1970s. Patrick first experienced the Seichim energies spontaneously while actually within the Great Pyramid of Giza. Following this experience/spontaneous initiation, Patrick spent the next few years learning from Sufi mystics and eventually developed Seichim as we know it today.
As Patrick received his spontaneous initiation within the Great Pyramid of Giza, it is said that Seichim is Egyptian in origin. It is Egyptian if you look at the location it was received, however, the actual energies are probably not strictly Egyptian. The Ancient Egyptians indeed could have used these energies (they have a form called Sekhem, and many types of Seichim combine Egyptian energies such as Isis Seichim, Sekhem Seichim and Sekhmet Seichim). Although the way in which Patrick received the energies and the way the energies feel it could have been from a Tibetan Buddhist empowerment (of course these energies could have been borrowed from the Ancient Egyptians to start with).
Tibetan Buddhists are known to use empowerments to pass on abilities and Patrick could have spontaneously received one of these types of empowerments. The energies of Seichim are often described as feminine, powerful, compassionate, loving, and nurturing. These are all qualities of Tara and even Quan Yin.
It appears that Patrick may have borrowed heavily from Reiki regarding how to practice, the attunement process and some of the symbols. However, the energies of Seichim are different including some symbols and concepts.
One thing that you will notice about Seichim is that there are so many variations and offshoots of the system. Due to the prolific expansion of Seichim systems, it is often difficult to fully know what the lineage is or indeed who may have created that form of Seichim.
Whatever the exact origin of energies, Seichim offers energies that are sorely needed in the world today. These beautifully feminine, compassionate, and loving energies mask the full power, and potential these energies may have in not only healing but also bringing people together and reminding us that we are loved and one with all.
If you want to learn Seichim, I offer an excellent selection of Seichim attunement courses.
Blissful Light Seichim is a great choice if you want a pure and straightforward Seichim modality that has no symbols and is just focused in the energies.
