- Why has Sarah created the Golden Light Egypt Tours?
Sarah experienced her own epiphany when she first travelled in Egypt in April 2010. As she sat on the deck of the Nile cruise boat gazing out at the scenes drifting by, she suddenly knew in the depths of her heart and soul that she was meant to be there – and that all she had learnt and experienced in life had carried her to this place: Egypt. She knew then and there that this was a pivotal time in her life, a true epiphany, and in that moment she knew that from that place in time and space, in Egypt, the whole of the rest of her life would unfurl, like a fan, reaching and arcing out before her.
She saw in that moment of clear knowing that she would run tours to Egypt, and that these tours would bring love, healing and blessings to not only herself, but would bring wonders and joy to all who travelled with her, to those working with her, and she knew that this journey laid out before her was meant to be… it was part of her, part of her soul evolution, part of her life journey.
Sarah has received so many blessings and such immense joy and spiritual growth from her journeys within Egypt and in the creation of the Golden Light Tours that her heart feels joyous and words cannot describe the immense love that she feels within and around her… because she followed her dreams, and because she trusted her loving, inner guidance. It is her wish and her hope that others travelling with her also receive abundance and blessings in equal measure, in greater measure… this is a longing, a desire, a passion… to reach out and assist others through the creation and by offering to others to opportuntiy for boundless joy, for immense upliftment… on tour, journeying, experiencing, and flowing with harmony and friendship – being together on a tour, finding the joyful heart within… together, with laughter, love, and joy.
Expand your senses and allow the journey to come to you, on a Golden Light Egypt Tour.
- What is it that makes touring together on a Golden Light Egypt Tour so special?
When we travel far from home we are freed from the routines and thought patterns that keep us locked in a certain mind-set, with its routine thought-patterns. On tour you are able to release the bonds, release the masks, and allow the true you to shine forth. On tour all that takes place is part of the tour, becomes part of the shared experience, and after a few days you start to feel the joy of travelling with those who are also experiencing their own inner journey. The laughter flows, and joy enters the heart as you get to know one-another… and get to know this new you, also.
On tour the wondrous sights, sounds and experience of Egypt are all around you, from the ancient and the mystical, to the modern and every-day. Questions you may have about Egyptian and Muslim culture, life in Egypt… all these Ahmed is very happy to talk about, because he loves Egypt passionately. He is comfortable talking about every detail of life in Egypt, and loves hearing about life in other countries, for he loves meeting people.
Sarah is passionate about life, about exploring, about learning and experiencing all that life has to offer. She is a able to provide insights about ancient Egypt that she accessed from the vast ‘databank of history’ – for all that has ever happened on earth Therefore you can say that Sarah works for love, and it is her blessing to be able to offer her ‘services’ to uplift, support and encourage others. It is her joy to help others become aware of the love, beauty and potential that exist within our lives here on earth.
Egypt is a place of awesome grandeur. Egypt is covered with ancient sites, built for the specific purpose of connecting to god, to deities and to earth. It is no wonder, then, that travel in Egypt can allow profound insights to come forth. In Egypt today life is still focussed upon god – Allah – and upon giving thanks for the wonders and experiences in life. The sound of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer is an evocative sound, and spirituality is woven into every-day life. In the shops you can often hear the poetic words of the Qur’an sung in sonorous tones… and these are listened to because they help the listener come to a place of love within his or her heart.
As you travel with Sarah you will be connecting to life as it used to be, gaining insights into what life was like for pharaohs, for priests, learning more about what types of ceremonies took place… We will be connecting with life in ancient Egypt as it was experienced by those living there - details that are not found in the hieroglyphic texts… Egypt, you could say, is like a huge gateway into the past, a past that is still very accessible because the buildings are still largely intact, and for this we can be very grateful. We will be following in the footsteps of other ’pilgrims’ who have been visiting Egypt for thousands of years to stand in awe of the majesty of human achievment that was created there. We shall indeed be bringing ancient Egypt back to life, bridging the gap between the past and the present.
When you travel in Egypt everything is so different that it is easy to step out of routine. Visiting the amazing sites helps you to reopen your eyes in wonder at what humans have achieved. This is one of the reasons why travelling in Egypt can enable you to switch off, completely relax and see life from a new perspective.
- Do you feel a calling to be in Egypt?
Do you feel a strong need to travel to Egypt? Have you had a vague desire for many years to travel to Egypt that is just now being awoken more forcefully? This sort of experience is very often the voice of the soul calling for reconnection to a time and place that you once knew and that is causing a resonance within your being. This is something that Sarah experienced – and it was the beginning of momentous and wonderful change in her life. For you see a journey to Egypt can be likened to a pilgrimage and the experience of reconnecting to a time, a place and to people that were very meaningful to you - memories that are held deep within your being. Trust that the desire to reconnect has purpose and meaning to it, and that this reconnecting can enable you to release past events and bring forward wonderful experiences, insights and skills to assist you as you go forward in this lifetime.
- What is Modern Egypt Like?
Egypt today is a coutry that is very much imbued with spirituality. 90% of the population are Muslim, and this religion is rich with the essence of the One God who is called Allah. Daily life is blended with spiritual life, and this creates many opporutities for joyful thanksgiving – giving thanks for life, for the love of god, for the blessings of life. The Qur’an teaches that everyone has a personal connection to god, and that this god is kind, merciful, and forgiving. These teachings bring forth joy and happiness within the hearts of many Egyptians, and this is the true face of Egypt: smiles, kindness, and laughter.
Family values are very important in Muslim society, which for the majority of Egyptians creates caring, kind relationships which are lasting because each person strives to be the best that they can be within the relationship. The Muslim religion teaches people to blend the heart and the mind when looking for solutions to problems and, like Allah, to be forgiving and non-judgemental. The vast majority of Egyptians want the best for themselves, their children and their country – as we all do - and we can support them on this journey by trusting and respecting them as our brothers and sisters, for this is surely what we would wish for ourselves, too.
A note from Sarah…
It is my great pleasure to bring you these tours that are times for joy, insight and wonder. Each time I visit Egypt new experiences come forward and new insights occur in many different ways that teach me about life in ancient Egypt and life in general. These then go on to assist me in the present. I look forward to being able to guide you into new experiences as we travel together, understanding that each tour group will receive information that is particularly relevant to those in that group.
You don’t need to be spiritual or psychic to enjoy a tour with Ahmed and me - an open mind, a desire to learn, and an interest in Egypt and new experiences are all that you need to participate and to enjoy your time on tour , ‘Walking with Spirit’.
If you are contemplating coming on one of these tours to Egypt then you may be feeling emotions within your heart and body as you think of this potential. Please pay attention to your instincts and to the feelings in your heart. If the tour comes to mind often and yet you feel unsure what to do then this can be a sign that part of you is urging you to join the tour and another part is resisting. This is usually because part of you senses that the tour will bring change – and even if this is wonderful, exciting and happy change the mind can become anxious because of course we tend to be creatures of habit who usually prefer to stay in our ‘comfort zones’. In these cases I recommend sitting and calming the breath and the mind, and then tuning in to the quiet voice of your heart to see what it ‘says’ in order to get a real feel for what you would like to do – what ‘you’ would like to do, not your mind
By choosing to travel to Egypt and taking this time for yourself you will be making a big statement to all parts of yourself that says that you are ready to do something different, you are ready to learn new ways of looking at life, and that you are most of all ready for fun and for enjoying yourself. Your intuition can guide you well and if you make the step of committing to the tour and paying your deposit, then you will find that the time and the money come forward at exactly the right times – this is so often the way spirit works in life.
If you find that you are being ‘called’ to Egypt, then this truly is no coincidence for there is a reason for everything, and that reason is about helping you to find greater levels of self-love, happiness and joy in your life. The choice is of course yours… and I would be honoured to have you join me!
I look forward to hearing from you and to being given the opportunity to guide you on tour in Egypt where it will be my pleasure to help you awaken to the boundless treasures that are waiting for you.
