Symbolically, scarabs were very important to the ancient Egyptians. Jars of real scarabs were buried with pharaohs from as early as the first dynasty of the Old Kingdom.
Scarab amulets were produced more prolifically than other talismans, and were often decorated with hieroglyphs, and used as seals. They were inscribed with names, mottos, religious prayers and magic formulae, and were regarded as sacred by the ancient Egyptians.
Scarab amulets varied in size from under a centimetre in length, and were produced in semiprecious stones, glass, faience, pottery, also gold and silver, many were inlaid or enamelled in later dynasties.
The scarab was associated with the different manifestations of the sun god, because of the way that the beetles rolled dung into perfect balls around their eggs. The ancient Egyptians saw this as a parallel to the movement of the sun across the sky, and the emergence of the scarab young from the ball was seen as symbolic of the creative powers of the sun.
Khepere was the ancient Egyptian scarab headed god of the rising sun, a manifestation of the sun god Re, and was represented by the scarab beetle. The ancient Egyptian name for scarab beetles was Kheperer, which translates as coming into being, and rising from.
The scarab was a powerful symbol of regeneration and transformation for the ancient Egyptians, and was often used as a good luck talisman, which was believed to attract abundance and enhance fertility. Scarab amulets were precious objects to the ancient Egyptians, and were made into beads and incorporated into jewellery from as early as Predynastic times in ancient Egypt.
Scarab amulets symbolise creation, rebirth and renewal, and are talismans of good luck. The Scarab is still a popular amulet in modern times.

Expressions of Faith
Many Hindus consider that religious symbols embody the divine, and are in themselves sacred. Hence the symbolic murti (sacred image) or prasada (sanctified food) not only point to transcendence but become that transcendence (Brahman) if invoked with love and devotion...
The Anglo-Saxon k in Magick is the eleventh letter of several alphabets, and eleven is the principal number of magick, because it is the number attributed to the Qliphoth - the underworld of chaotic forces that have to be mentally conquered before magick can be performed. K has other magical implications: it corresponds to the power or shakti aspect of creative energy, for k is the ancient Egyptian khu, the magical power.

Stories from A-Z
Spiritual Power, Amulets and Rituals
Nowadays it is often standard not only to add your website to a list of webpages using a short description but to write an informative story which points to your site. Also we offer you the possibility to tell your readers more about yourself thereby making a lasting impression which would be impossible by simply using a title and a short description alone.
Writing for the internet is a special challenge since most visitors of a webpage only skim through texts in order to find the information they were seeking as quickly as possible. It is therefore very important to structure your stories in a way that makes them easy to comprehend and quick to read. In this context it is helpful to start the text with a summary of its content and only then to explain more details step by step - this way the visitor of the webpage can decide after every paragraph if he already has learned enough or if he wants to read more information.
The different ideas of your story should be arranged as short paragraphs which should not be longer than 3-4 sentences. Certainly your text starts with a main heading that summarizes the content of the story, that is to the point and that is not longer than 10 words - but also subheadings should be used as additional structural elements. Furthermore important parts of the story should be written in bold or italics if they are citations. Since italic characters can be hard to read on screen alternatively citations can be highlighted using quotation marks or (as we will see later) they can be written in colour if they are especially important for your story. But please make sure that you don't overuse coloured or bold text since your story otherwise can become confusing.
All structural elements mentioned so far make it easier to quickly skim through a text and to find the information sought. For the same purpose also bulleted lists are ideal especially if you want to talk about different facts that you have to present in a structured manner. It is also true that numbered lists can enhance the overall clearness if you want to talk about a fixed number of ideas (e.g. The 10 best Methods to make your Website famous). Also images and references structure a story: Images can enhance the interest for a text further by using an informative caption and references can lead to the originator of a quotation - these citations are best marked by coloured text to make them stand out even more.
