Ptah The One
The meaning of Ptah can in some case be difficult to comprehend because the “essence” of Ptah and its significance is considered to be embedded in the nature of the universe and of creation itself. It is considered to be within you and all around you, and is the essence of all that was, all that is, and all that will be.
Modern texts and understandings have traced Ptah back over 5000 years but it is believed that the ancient Egyptians (most further back in time) considered Ptah to be the creator of the physical universe……. First he conceived the ideas, then felt them in his heart. Once he spoke the words, life and things were created…..does this sound familiar?
Through time there have been many representations of PTAH through the ages, most noticeably by the ancient Egyptians; There are also modern representations of PTAH, the most famous of which is Oscar statue, an “Art Decco” form, where the staff of Ptah has been replaced by a sword, but the form and poise of the figure is obviously a direct descendant of the ancient symbols of Ptah. Austin Cedric Gibbons who was credited as the designer of the Oscar statuette in 1928, was no doubt inspired by the Ancient spirit.
2018 saw the 90th Academy Awards Ceremony (the Oscars), and 90 has great significance in Ancient numerology. It is said that “Number 90 is a combination of the energies and attributes of number 9 and number 0. Number 9 brings its vibrations of the Universal Spiritual Laws, compassion and empathy, benevolence and generosity, spiritual awareness, leading life as a positive example for others, service to humanity. Number 9 also relates to endings and conclusions. Number 0 resonates with the energies of eternity and infinity, continuing cycles and flow, and the beginning point. Number 0 stands for potential and/or choice, and is a message to do with developing one’s spiritual aspects and is considered to represent the beginning of a spiritual journey. Number 0 brings the influences of the ‘God force’ or Universal Energies, and amplifies and magnifies the energies of the number it appears with. This makes number 90 a powerfully life-changing number.”– (sacred scribes-2011).
The Ptah Council has chosen this highly significant year to launch its new ‘but Ancient’ awards platform to recognise those, who through their compassion and empathy, benevolence, generosity, spiritual awareness, and leading life as a positive example for others, as well as their service to humanity, have made a difference. Our gift to these individuals is our representation of Ptah which seeks to acknowledge the ancient origins of the “essence” of Ptah.
