www SEKHEM composted by Patrick Zeigler, Group AdministratorMonday, October 11th 2010 @ 4:58 PM
Hi all I recently saw this new Sekhem website and felt I need to comment and felt it needs a further explanation.
This site is property of Robert Elliott.
Please use the link as I do not wish to break any copyright laws by putting his words on my site without his permission.
Robert Elliott's claim is that Helen Belot’s SEKHEM has no connection at all to the original Seichim introduced by Patrick Zeigler in 1984 and that Patrick Zeigler had no involvement in the Initial channeling of SEKHEM.
After Helen Belot’s SEKHEM Trademark failure in the USA she applied to the European Union and won. The reason she was awarded this Trademark was there was really no credible opposition. Many people were quite critical of our USA opposition; they did not want to protest as it was not spiritual, so what happened, they lost their right to use the name SEKHEM in the EU.
Robert Elliott is the only person in the EU who has opposed the SEKHEM Trademark that was issued to Helen Belot. As most people know her Trademark attempt in the USA was unsuccessful thanks to Diane Shewmaker. Diane provided Robert with the identical material used to not allow the trademark in the USA, but Robert’s opposition failed in the EU.
This created a big uproar when threatening legal letters were sent to people who had SEKHEM advertised on their website. What followed was a huge discussion. Here is the discussion
General forum discussion
The discussion was divided into two camps. The first was people who used the name SEKHEM who may or may not have had a direct connection with Helen Belot, but who had no current certification with her. After all many people have been using the name SEKHEM, that have no connection to Helen Belot.
The second group was Helen Belot’s Inner circle of Teachers, who along with Helen wanted SEKHEM to be restricted to only her certified teachers.
Basically they were very much in favor of her Trademark limiting the use of the word SEKHEM, so they could have exclusive rights to the word through Helen.
What transpired after her successful Trademark of SEKHEM was Helen Belot issued a letter to the whole Sekhem community and stated that SEKHEM was her property and nobody in the EU was allowed to use the name, even her certified teachers who paid thousands to have that right.
I have no problem with Certification and Trademarks, but what Helen was attempting to do was Trademark the Name SEKHEM which was already in use. Helen studied Seichim with Phoenix Summerfield; who also used the Spelling SEKHEM since 1988, as well as myself.
The ideal solution which I suggested to Helen was for her to Trademark her Name with SEKHEM; which would be HELEN BELOT SEKHEM or some other wording. This was rejected and ignored.
In Helen’s Trademark application she would have had to have stated that there was nobody else using the name SEKHEM.
After her application she also stated that SEKHEM was a name she created.
Here is the quote form Helen Belot.
Sekhem is just a word and this energy was not called by that name in ancient times but was the name I gave it in 1992 to distinguish it from other energies and to reflect the all knowing wisdom available to all who use it. No matter what it is called when used with integrity it is still the same high vibrational energy.
In Helen’s Book “The Sekhem Story” she says
Many translate it(SEKHEM) as a divine characteristic or manifestation of a divine power, or evoking of the ‘god within”
At that time she was well aware of its use and how it was used in Egypt.
The word Sekhem was translated as “Power of Powers” and referred to the high energy of the Deities of Egypt.
I have Helen Belot’s manual that I received through Robert Elliott it states very clearly
Helen Belot’s Reiki Seichim and Sekhem lineage. Here are the contents of that manual by Helen Belot.
This manual is from around ~1995 not dated but before the death of Phoenix in 1997
After her death Helen Belot asked for all manuals to be burnt and the new manuals deleted this material.
LINEAGE OF HELEN BELOT
Barbara Van Dyst
She also states in her manual given to me through Robert Elliott
In the 1980’s an American Reiki Master, Patrick Zeigler was given the Sekhem system in much the same mystical way as Dr. Usui had received Reiki. He called this System, Seichim which is the Sanskrit name for the Egyptian word Sekhem. – Helen Belot
It is a well known fact that Dr. Usui did not create the system of healing we know today as Reiki. The system was created as the energy went down through the lineage from Usui. It was Dr. Hayashi who introduced many of the symbols and structure, Hawayo Takata made her revisions and added symbols as well. This was the case for Sekhem as well.
The spelling Seichim was not the Sanskrit name for the Egyptian word Sekhem.
They are both pronounced the same, its just the English language does not have a hard “KH” sound found in the Egyptian Semitic Language; therefore, there are many ways to spell it. The SEKHEM spelling is the most common way to spell it.
Later in Helen Belot’s book “The Sekhem Story” page 65
She states “Phoenix Summerfield was the lineage holder of Seichim”
When she knew full well Patrick Zeigler introduced Seichim and Sekhem.
This was written in 2005; So why the discrepancy?
It was after Phoenix died Helen Belot then made the claim that she was the Lineage holder of Seichim as well as Sekhem.
So my questions are why would Helen change her mind?
Why would Robert Elliott who was considered a lapsed Sekhem Master by Helen Belot now support Helen Belot to spread these myths?
Robert Elliott has on his website that he wants to spread the truth about Helen Belot and her SEKHEM. Is this really his motivation?
Helen has now retired, so she no longer teaches. Robert teaches many differnt types of energy systems that the founders no longer support or teach.
Also the reality is because Robert is the only person who was in opposition to her Trademark and was given permission at some point to teach SEKHEM, he feels he is now the only person in the EU who can legally teach it. Helen Belot now does not now teach SEKHEM.
Basically Robert Elliott wants to revise history to state that Helen’s SEKHEM is unique and has no connection at all to Seichim or any other form of Sekhem. By doing this he can claim he is the only one besides Helen who can teach it in the EU as long as Helen enforces her ban in the EU on teaching SEKHEM and using the word SEKHEM. In other words all who want to teach Sekhem in the EU without legal threat must go through him.
Robert claims he has an acute sensory awareness so good he can distinguish that HELEN BELOT SEKHEM is from Sirius and Seichim from Patrick Zeigler is from the Pleiades; thus giving proof that they are distinct. I had a personal session with Helen Belot and from several of her students. Each session was unique, that is the nature of Seichim / Sekhem. The energy is not like Reiki where it is very consistent from one practitioner to the next. This is one reason why so many different Reiki and Seichim system have evolved.
Robert Elliott has also acquired the website www.sekhem.com which was being sold for $5,000 at one time, he purchased it so he can spread his truth about HELEN BELOT SEKHEM.
I do not deny Helen Belot Sekhem was a very powerful system. What I am have been bringing to light the way she and Robert are trying to rewrite the history of where she received the Sekhem Initiations.
Robert Elliott’s other claim is that Helen is under attack.
People want to know the truth and it has been hidden, so in his mind bringing forth this information is an attack. Robert feels that somehow this truth will have an effect on his Sekhem claims.
People want to be able to freely use the name SEKHEM without legal threat from Helen Belot or Robert Elliott. This is why there has been so much discussion on the internet. People deserve to know the full story and not have it hidden. SEKHEM needs to be free much the same way REIKI is used freely around the world. Controlling the energy limits it. The word Reiki also had a Trademark attempt, but that attempt failed.
I am now in a position where I am the only one who really knows the full history of Sekhem and Seichim; I have a detailed history and have met and known many of the people involved in the creation of the Seichim and SEKHEM systems. I have letters from Helen herself thanking me for bringing the Sekhem and Seichim Energy to the planet. I was even given Helen’s letters she wrote to Phoenix before she died confirming this. Phoenix gave them to me and said you will need these someday.
The logo that Helen Trademarked with SEKHEM was designed by Phoenix for Phoenix’s version of SEKHEM that she was planning to teach. This logo was not given to Helen to Trademark; Helen Belot just used it after Phoenix died. The SEKHEM logo was one of many things that Helen then claimed to be her own in her book “The SEKHEM Story”.
The big difference between what Helen taught and Phoenix taught was that Helen drew her symbols in 3D. Helen claimed this was unique! I have always taught the symbols were 3D and others have as well. Unfortunaly many things she learned from Deepa were changed and altered, this is where some of the probelms came from.
I do feel that much of the problem was Helen did not get the full information from the beginning and then discovered the qualities of Sekhem on her own, thus claiming it to b e her own, which is wonderful. I have always said the energy is the best teacher. Kathleen Milner had a similar experience where she had a strong connection with the energy and developed her Tera Mai system, but she did not trademark Seichem, another spelling.
What people need to realize is that Seichim and Sekhem have evolved and are both very much connected to the heart. The old versions of Sekhem were very much connected to the power centers, this is why there has been so much conflict and division, now the energy is moving into the heart center. Seichim and Sekhem are both a group energy. We are all part of bringing through this energy. This is why it is important at this time to all come together and live what we teach.
