    Description

    In Winged Pharaoh, Joan Grant tells the story of Sekeeta, the pharaoh's daughter. The ancient Egyptians reserved the title of Winged Pharaoh for ruler priests who possessed extrasensory powers. When Sekeeta demonstrates psychic abilities, she is sent to the temple and trained to recall past lives. Upon the death of her father, she becomes a Winged Pharaoh - both priestess and pharaoh - and leads her country with enlightenment.

    The most famous of Joan Grant's Far Memory series, this book brings the grandeur, beauty, and mystery of ancient Egypt to life. 

    As a child, Joan Grant astonishingly became aware of her uncanny "far memory", the ability to recall past incarnations who had lived in long-ago times and far-flung places. Her seven historical novels stand out for their vividness and rich detail. For Joan, these books were not works of the imagination, but personal recollections of her previous lives.

    Entertaining yes, but historically accurate?

    It's an entertaining story but the extent of its historical accuracy should be considered when looked at in the light of it being classified as a "far memory" account.

    There is no Za Atet attested as pharaoh in the archaeological record, although there is a Zet and a Den in the 1st Dynasty King list, this being the dynasty in which the story unfolds.

    No Ancient Egyptian would have thought of the earth as "mother" - the earth was thought of as a father god, Geb.

    The casting of the god Set as an ultimate evil is a modern interpretation. He was certainly associated with storms and the chaotic aspects of nature, but in the early dynasties in particular He was the kingly counterpart to Heru (Horus) and very much part of the pharaonic majesty of kingship uniting the two lands. His demonisation came much later, and the very Christian / Victorian relegation of Him as the Christian devil is recent.

    Some aspects of the story are described with breathtaking imagery that lends to the notion that she really was recalling a former life, but vague references to temples in both Egypt and Crete lacking mention of which deities these temples were dedicated to makes me suspicious. The presiding deity of a temple would have been the number one thing of importance to anyone living in that period, especially Egypt which was a theocratic nation.

    The line of rulership belonging to the matriarchal line is accurate, and there are other tantalizing aspects of the story that just might one day be confirmed by archaeology or other sciences. Otherwise, I approach this as a story and a damn good one at that.

    Exciting, insightful, truly spiritual.

    I have read this lovely book many times, yet to have it read by this narrator brought it to life on a new level.
    To me, this book speaks the deepest spiritual truths.
    As one who has had the experience of recalling portions of past lives, this author's honesty and vivid recalls of other incarnations is an absolute delight. She frames her recalls with the wisdom gained from the lessons she learned over many lives. Her love for all of life, and her high ethics, inspire one to continue to strive to be a giver of love and service to all of life.

    Great story of ancient Egypt

    Love the detailed ideas she presents about soul/spirit, life force healing of others and priestly training. Particularly found interesting the small side “chambers of peace” around the sanctuary were protectively charged to let in no spirit without a body, so dreaming student priests could return to their bodies safely. We had seen these small rooms in Egypt in temples and wondered about them.

    She Lived It

    Joan Grant was an extraordinary women & author. I have read all her books at one time or another. I was delighted when I saw 2 of them on Audible. This was my second time through Winged Pharaoh. It was a pleasure to hear it narrated. I hope you will put the rest on Audible so new generations may discover her journeys. And don’t forget her wonderful children’s book, The Blue Faience Hippopotamus. One of my all time favorites.

    I’ve found gold

    I don’t know how I missed this author for so long. She is poetic in the order of Rumi or Hafiz… her stories arise as if from a wellspring of inner beauty and truth…thank you Joan

    Fascinating tale of Ancient Egypt

    Joan Grant claimed to have 'Far Memories" of her past lives- and the writing in Winged Pharaoh certainly gives the feeling of seeing a life actually lived, rather than simple fiction.
