When I was writing my third book, I had several reviews - also from friends.
Inspired by one of them, this part I decided to not include because the source was not reliable enough.
But with you, I share:
«The Stela of the Dream, located between the front claws of the great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt, tells the story of a dream: “My face belongs to you, and so does my heart. I suffer. The burden that weighs on me will make me disappear. Save me, my son, from the desert sand that covers me. I will make you a king.”
Thutmose had this dream, followed it and thus carried out one of the first restorations in the history of the arts. The prophecy was fulfilled: Thutmose IV became the new Pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire.»
I am thinking of including it in my fourth book “Dream a Way - Sleep, Conscious Dreams and Passage to Death”.
Does anyone here have a reliable source confirming that these are indeed the words written in the Stela @ the Sphynx, in Egypt? From my research at that time, some people said it was an epileptic episode and not a dream, and there were also other possible translations of that text. Perhaps you beloved @Bianca_Aga know anything about this?
What I confirmed at that time and wrote in my third book was:
«In this ancient culture, dreams brought messages from the great Gods. By dreaming consciously, one had access to premonitions, answers to questions and received help from deities. Part of the priests’ interpretations of the Pharaohs’ dreams have come down to our day thanks to the divination manual “The Chester Beatty 3 Papyrus”. In ancient Egypt, BES was the benevolent god of sleep and dreams.
Papyri from the 2nd century BC have a record of Ptolemy’s dream notes, “Ptolemy’s Dreams”. With this record he made spiritual, family and political decisions.
One of the earliest literary works, “The Epic of Gilgamesh”, by the Sumerian people, has various translations: “He who has seen the depths”, “He who has seen the abyss” and/or “He who rises above all other kings”. More than 4,000 years old, also written in stone, this book already mentions premonitory dreams and transcendence.»
