WIKIPEDIA: The ancient Egyptian goddess of wisdom, knowledge, and writing. She was seen as a scribe and record keeper, and her name means she who scrivens (i.e. she who is the scribe), and is credited with inventing writing. She also became identified as the goddess of accounting, architecture, astronomy, astrology, building, mathematics, and surveying.

In art, she was depicted as a woman with a seven-pointed emblem above her head. It is unclear what this emblem represents. This emblem is the origin of an alternate name for Seshat, Sefkhet-Abwy, which means “seven-horned”

Mistress of the House of Books is another title for Seshat, being the deity whose priests oversaw the library in which scrolls of the most important knowledge were assembled and spells were preserved. One prince of the fourth dynasty, Wep-em-nefret, is noted as the Overseer of the Royal Scribes, Priest of Seshat on a slab stela. Heliopolis was the location of her principal sanctuary.

Usually, she is shown holding a palm stem, bearing notches to denote the recording of the passage of time, especially for keeping track of the allotment of time for the life of the pharaoh. She was also depicted holding other tools and, often, holding the knotted cords that were stretched to survey land and structures.

She is frequently shown dressed in a cheetah or leopard hide, a symbol of funerary priests. If not shown with the hide over a dress, the pattern of the dress is that of the spotted feline. The pattern on the natural hide was thought to represent the stars, being a symbol of eternity, and to be associated with the night sky.

As the divine measurer and scribe, Seshat was believed to appear to assist the pharaoh in both of these practices. It was she who recorded, by notching her palm, the time allotted to the pharaoh for his stay on earth.

Seshat assisted the pharaoh in the “stretching the cord” ritual. This ritual is related to laying out the foundations of temples and other important structures in order to determine and assure the sacred alignments and the precision of the dimensions. Her skills were necessary for surveying the land after the annual floods to reestablish boundary lines. The priestess who officiated at these functions in her name also oversaw the staff of others who performed similar duties and were trained in mathematics and the related store of knowledge.

She also was responsible for recording the speeches the pharaoh made during the crowning ceremony and approving the inventory of foreign captives and goods gained in military campaigns. During the New Kingdom, she was involved in the Sed festival held by the pharaohs who could celebrate thirty years of reign.

Thoth, the reckoner of time and god of writing who was also venerated as a god of wisdom was closely identified with Seshat, with whom he shared some overlapping functions. At times she was identified as his daughter, and at other times as his wife.

From my Thothic receipt: Seshat was a title, as was “Thoth.” The first and principle Seshats  were his sister Lhasa, wife Sesmi and the Oracle-Priestess (and Thoth Raismes’ Twin Flame) Myar. Now, within the Inner Earth Domain, Thoth is ThothHorRa, Lhasa is Mi’kala, Myar is SaRafana A’DuRa and Sesmi is…still Sesmi (she chose to keep that name.)

History records how the ancient Egyptians perceived “Seshat.” Yet in the time of Thoth Raismes, which was before, during and just after the final sinking of Atlantis, the Seshat was she who worked within the Akasha and often trained scribes for this task. “Training” was really a matter of initiation and deep inner learning to open that portal in the brain-mind.

The Seshats could “see truth” so they were often called upon to determine if a person was speaking the truth or if certain histories were in alignment with the Akasha. This was an especially valuable talent after the Great Flood following the Time Tsunami and resultant sinking of Atlantis, as much history had been scattered to the winds of divergent time lines.

Since the Akasha was open to them, sacred geometry was also their forte. They could spin geometries with the energy from from their hands for healing and clearing negativity from spaces and lands.
