Ankh and Goddess Isis

Ankh and Goddess Isis

The Ankh symbol represents the “Key to Life”. It is very strong healing tool, balancing the energy inside whole energetic
system of the person

The Goddess Isis is often portrayed with the Ankh in her hand tomaintain power and energy in all her endeavors.
The ankh was widely used as an amulet in Ancient Egypt.
Many reliefs in Ancient Egyptian temples show scenes where the king is offered the ankh by the gods.

From the spiritual point of view the ankh represented the key to all hidden knowledge. The loop symbolized the eternal soul as it has no beginning or end.
The Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water (which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh.

The ankh, on some temple walls in Upper Egypt, could also symbolize water in rituals of purification. Here, the king would stand between two gods, one of whom was usually Thoth, as they poured over him a stream of libations represented by ankhs.
It reinforces the close connection the pharaohs had with the gods in whose name he ruled and to whom he returned after death.
