In our observations of Synchronistic and Synchromystic phenomena, we often fail to consider our own link in the chain.
Is it possible to determine your personal Archetypal Resonance?
An archetype is like an old watercourse along which the water of life has flowed for centuries, digging a deep channel for itself."----Carl Jung
Let me preface by saying that I've never felt any connection to any kind of past life. The only thing I could draw on was the fact that I've always been fascinated with ancient Egypt and the Pyramids.
Years ago at a museum exhibit on ancient Egypt I saw a statuette that looked a lot like me. It was a small, painted figurine and she was down on her knees. I was riveted to it. The museum's label indicated that she was an unknown subject, most likely a servant because of her kneeling position.
Until recently, that's the only experience I've ever had of feeling connected to something from the past.
Then one day last month I was online researching the Egyptian god Thoth for a blog post when I came across a sentence on the Crystalinks website concerning a connection between Thoth and a goddess named Seshat.
He took on many of the roles of Seshat, until she became a dual, female version of Thoth.
I'd never heard of her, but as soon as I saw that name...Seshat...a strange feeling of recognition came over me. It felt like finding an old photo of myself.
The name Seshat means "she who is the scribe". In ancient Egypt she was seen as a recordkeeper and was credited with inventing writing. She also became identified as the goddess of architecture, mathematics, and surveying.
I noticed that the spelling of Seshat was sort of an amalgam of my real first and last names (No, Sibyl Hunter is not my real name...just a nom de plume I invented from Sibyl=Seer and Sync Hunter).
Other forms of her name are Safkhet or Seshata. These alternate names are so similar to my real first name, both syllabically and phonetically, that I was literally shocked into a state of disbelief and awe.

This evidence also proved that Seshat was a Writer and an Engineer...just like me. Growing up I won awards for my writing, but I also had a deep love for math so I studied engineering in college. Her priests were responsible for overseeing the library...a place where I spent a great deal of my childhood.
Next, I learned that Seshat was often portrayed in the kneeling position of a scribe. This synced with my experience in the museum years ago seeing the statuette (perhaps mistakenly labeled as a servant) that resembled me.

Finally, I discovered that one of the oldest known images of Seshat can be found on the Narmer Palette.

Pharaoh Narmer was also known as "King Catfish". I knew then that the syncs in all their wacky symmetry had dangled that wink out there especially for me because anyone who knows me can tell you that my favorite food is now and always has been catfish.

What does this all mean? I can't know for certain, however I'm pretty sure it does not mean I'm a reincarnation of an Egyptian goddess. I believe that I exist as a unique, individual creation.
Instead, as we are learning from studying the phenomena of Synchronicity and Synchromysticism, I feel there is simply an Energy, a Frequency that Seshat resonated which I also resonate.
For those of you who read Gary Zukov and Eckhart Tolle, you may relate this to the concept of being an aspect of an Oversoul. In ancient Egypt this concept was known as the the Ka.

In researching this topic I read a theory proposed by Dr. Walter Semkiw. He has developed a methodology he believes can trace "soul groups" through history. His process involves matching up facial/personality characteristics and performing psychic readings.
Interesting. Yet, I managed to achieve the same thing simply by meditating on the question and then allowing the answer to come to me in the Stream of Knowingness and Synchronistic events.
Ideally, I wrote this rather odd and profoundly personal post in hopes of encouraging others to tap into their higher minds.
I believe that each of us has the innate ability to focus inward, communicate with the Higher Self, and receive information from our collective consciousness.
All you have to do is ask.
