Kalika-Khenmetaten, the Supreme Egyptian Adept: Ancient Secret Knowledge of the Great Female Master

Explore the profound secrets revealed in an Egyptian manuscript written over three-thousand-three-hundred years ago by a supreme master, Kalika-Khenmetaten. Composed under the protection of her patrons, the great Kings Amenhotep III and his successor Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten), Kalika's manuscript sets forth the essential knowledge and cardinal principals of consciousness necessary to attain extraordinary abilities.History is the relics of a shipwreck; far more of the knowledge of the past has been concealed than revealed. Explore an unprecedented opportunity to discover ancient secrets that convey remarkable powers, far-reaching revelations that for long millenniums have remained hidden under the most intense silence.Some ten-thousand years ago there appeared on the banks of the Nile, as if suddenly sprung from the sands, the first great civilization of known history. No one knows from whence the early Egyptians came, yet no people, ancient or modern, have conceived of building a civilization on a scale so sublime, so great, so grandiose, as the Ancient Egyptians.Their technology of architecture, engineering, agriculture, and metallurgy; the invention of glass and linen, of paper and ink, of the calendar and the clock, of geometry and the alphabet; the excellence and sublimity of sculpture and the arts; the advancement of science and medicine; the first cry for social justice, the first monotheism . . . all elevated to a degree of superiority and power that has seldom, if ever, been equaled since.How were these monumental accomplishments achieved? How did a small stone-age culture suddenly rise to create one of the greatest civilizations of history? This book explores answers to that mystery in the work of the great Egyptian Master Kalika-Khenmetaten. Magical, inspirational and richly enlightening, the story of Kalika is one of the most epic in history, and her writings reveal the profound knowledge and power of the masters of those distant ages.Fragments of the material presented in this book have through the centuries appeared in arcane mystical texts, in the more profound Eastern philosophies, and in the secret wisdom traditions of various ages. This is to be expected--the knowledge that conveys true power has an ancient origin. In modern times, splinters of this knowledge have resurfaced in various formats, although unfortunately absent both the most fundamental as well as the most advanced elements of the wisdom system of the supreme masters. The writings of Kalika-Khenmetaten are absent nothing--they are all-encompassing.Attaining the ability to purposefully manifest whatever persons, circumstances and events you desire to experience in your life cannot be truly achieved through simplistic concepts of "positive thinking" or some alleged "secret," as so many people have learned. Kalika produced her manuscript, The Golden Crown, for important reasons. It is to some extent a manual, a comprehensive guide to reaching higher awareness, written by a supreme master for masters, but not only for masters. Kalika intended that it could be utilized by persons of requisite ability to reach, through their own efforts, significantly expanded levels of awareness. It sets forth the foundational recognitions and essential principles of consciousness necessary to master extraordinary creative abilities and powers, and explains how to utilize that power to bring control and abundance into every aspect of your life.An unprecedented account that is inspirational, thought provoking and richly enlightening, this book will resonate in your heart and mind long after the last words have been read. A must read for anyone on a spiritual path or desiring expanded awareness and personal power. 2017 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 289 (estimated, actual count varies depending on reading device used).
