Heka was the god of magick in ancient Egypt.
Above: the spiritual power we call the “creative force”
Heka was depicted in royal dress wearing the bull’s tail of kingship with two serpents crossing his chest. Heka’s first syllable “he” was the power (8) that made creation possible and every act of magick was simply a continuation of this. To direct this force came the “ka” of spirit (11). As the first and last numbers, their sum (19) was known as the Alpha and Omega.
Atop Heka’s head sat a lion (the Sphinx), indicating the golden eighth chakra. While this artistic rendering was a linear reference, the hyperdimensional location of the Soul Star remains the high chest. The thymus, also known as the higher heart chakra, is considered to be where “unconditional love” as “eternal life” originates. It is also the gate to higher consciousness which implies a life of service, prosperity and joy. Here we are reminded of Galadriel’s eight-pointed star in the Rings of Power:
This rectangular cross formed by the snakes implies the magickal hexagon with 19 cells, or the shadow of the 4D polytope we call the rectified tesseract. Heka was not only a god, but also the personification of magick—the idea as well as the practice. He was the divine force that magicians called upon during their rituals. Heka then, was THE WORD described in the Bible.

If Giza is the eighth chakra of the Nile as discussed here, then the Sphinx once gazed at the constellation Leo on the eastern horizon. When we look more closely at Leo in the firmament, we notice that Regulus glitters in the chest. In other words, this star is the cosmic equivalent of the eighth chakra.
The Sphinx therefore, symbolises the alignment of Egypt with the highest form of life. It is the space where our physical body connects with divinity—where we can align with the Great Central Sun via the Lion’s Gate.
