Turquoise bedroom of Hathor-Sekhmet

From the yellow hall, the doors glazed with emerald green Islamic style glass lead to Hathor-Sekhmet bedroom. The walls of this room enchant with intense turquoise colour, symbolizing the Spiritual heart – Ananda Khanda energy center, also called the 4/5 chakra of the body, located in the chest area, below the right shoulder. This energy center is "fed" by turquoise wavelength, that is, with this colour, and it is "responsible" for the person’s individuality, originality, creativity and environmental consciousness. The turquoise colour melts the inner "ice", moves up the flow of feelings, expands the inner space and inspires for creativity and high ideals, for artistic self-expression, helps to better understand the people and all the living beings – just to feel with the whole heart.

But perhaps most of all turquoise and the 4/5 chakra is appreciated because of transcendental consciousness, which could be described by the words "one and many." Turquoise strengthens the sense of individuality, of identity, and at the same time it helps to feel being a small part of the infinite whole, "like a drop in the ocean."

In Egyptian mythology, turquoise is associated with the goddess of beauty and creativity Hathor. There are two framed papyruses with the images of goddesses Hathor and Sekhmet hanging in this bedroom. It was considered in ancient Egypt that these goddesses embody two poles of the same energy and, depending on the situation, they may take the form of a cow or a lioness.

Goddess Sekhmet symbolizes bravery, courage, persistent aim seeking, commitment to the own ideals. She bravely defends the dominions of her father, sun god Ra, from the rebels and the raiders. When turned into a lioness, she becomes an unbeatable rival, she swallows the enemies and drinks their blood. When flown into rage, Sekhmet becomes the archetypal incarnation of aggression. This energy can help a modern man to protect his whole life territory and everything, ​​what is dear, to be a faithful friend and an unconquerable enemy. There is a special shrine to this goddess in Karnak temple. Two lithographs of Karnak temple from David Roberts travels collection hang in the turquoise room. When quelled the anger of the goddess with red beer (or wine), she got her gentle feminine form of Hathor again. Therefore, red and turquoise colors are associated with the dyad of the goddesses.

Hathor is the archetype of bodily pleasures, sexuality, arts and creativity. This goddess is portrayed as a beautiful woman with cow's horns, between which the sun is shining. In ancient iconography, Hathor is depicted as the divine cow, which encompasses the whole world. Music, art, dance, massage, creative self-expression, the ability to enjoy the bodily pleasures – all this is the dominion of Hathor. Since aggression and sexuality are the passions, blazing in the physical body, Hathor and Sekhmet archetypes help a person to "ground" himself or herself, to feel the connection with the physical world, with his or her body, to learn how to manage, harmonize and conduct creatively the most powerful energies – love and war.

Here, in this room, all the details are turquoise: bedding, the blankets, the towels, chair tapestry. Wide double bed of 140 cm stands in the bedroom, above which, if necessary, a blue mosquito net is hung. White wooden handmade furniture create clean and fresh atmosphere. Arabian chandeliers, sounding in the winds, and a wall lamp with decorative white glass pendants flood the bedroom with a romantic light in the evenings. In the room, next to the door, here hangs a unique mirror of the Bedouin production – a relic of the disappearing world.

The room features wide double-hinged doors to the spacious loggia, surrounding the first floor from the north-east side, where you can enjoy the rippling pool below and the green palm trees. All the first floor balconies overlooking a wide panorama: on the left – the Red Sea mountain range decaying, just before the house stretches Arabian desert, and on the right Red Sea is before your eyes.
