Reflections in Time - The Search For Alexander

So many legends abound concerning Alexander The Great. Most of them are concerning the way he died. No one has ever thought of the obvious.....the one least suspected.................. Alexander after his many campaigns after shedding so much blood in his quest to civilize the uncivilized, spent his last days in Babylon. So much killing had effected Alexander's mind as well as the belief he was the son of a God. His male concubine, Hesphastion was pressuring him into leaving his wife and son. Word got back to Olympias about what was happening and she took measures to stop the travesty of making his concubine his Queen, which is exactly what was going to occur, if she had not stepped in. Cassander gave his blessing, pretending loyalty to Alexander, and captured Roxanne and his son and held them in Pydna. So Olympias had Hespastion poisoned.

Unfortunately being blood Alexander was taught in his mothers ways, he knew after grief settled, that his mother was responsible for Hesphastion's death. He sought the old ways to punish her.........He tried to used her own Magick to destroy her. But Olympias knew from where the foul air came and protected herself, which eded up repelling it back to him. Being her son he would not quit and now word got to her that Roxanne and her grandson was going to be killed..........The boy she raised and nurtured was not the same one who now attacked her. After much investigation and relying on the word of Ptolemy she was forced to use more than reversal magick to stop her own child.

A spirit was sent to Babylon to stop Alexander. It was not intended to kill him, but it played on his weaknesses, he drank like his father did, but the demon inspired him to literally destroy himself with the nectar of the gods....and the man who would be god died June 10th in a fever and sweats of alcohol poisoning....and the slow acting poison that was fed to him by his friend, Cassander.

With Ptolemy in her camp, she had him steal her son's body, and she picked the place of his eternal rest and sealed it with many terrible curses to contain the mal spirits that he had collected over the years of killing. Also the tomb needed to contain the guardian spirit/demon she had given him at birth. The same that was used to end his life.

During this time Aristotle, Alexander's teacher, had become more of an attacker than a mentor, he repeated attacked his belief in his divinity, rightly so, but the foolish old man, wouldn't back off. Part of Olympias power came from the belief of the people that she had been chosen by Zeus to bear his son, this gave her power and standing in the material realm. With Alexander gone she could not have this 'teacher' shooting his mouth off----he was silenced...permanently.

Her mission was to try to save Roxanne and baby Alexander, she and her army laid siege to Cassander at Pydna......Many months past with neither side winning Cassander offered Olympias her life as that of what was left of her family. So she laid down arms in the mistaken belief that she was dealing with an honorable person. She was wrong. Roxanne and Alexander had been murdered months ago. And she would be subject to a monkey trial where she was condemned to death. Cassander had not thought his own executioners would turn on him and refuse to kill her. So he had to gather the relatives of those she had to have executed for various reasons over the years, to stone her to death.......He then had her dumped into the Aegean.

He made the mistake in not being sure she was dead. As a worshipper on Dionyisis she found favor in his energies and a couple of Dolphins brought her to shore by a small fishing village. A young woman found her and had her brought her home and nursed her. She had recognized who she was and got word to Ptolemy of her whereabouts. But since her injuries were so sever she died on the way to Alexandria. Ptolemy interred her with her son, not realizing just how terrible those curses had been. But worse yet was the theft of Olympis' Ring of Power. It was fashioned and given to her by the High Priest of the Dionysian cult she belonged to and it was like a wedding ring to Dionysus. This would protect her and give her power though out her life. These two acts, then released the most terrible destructive eneries on the Ptolemic Dynasty a painful curse that led to their destruction as well as the death of Egypt at the hand of Rome.....Once Arsinoe his daughter, the reincarnation of Olympias, took back her ring and bought to fruition the curse, when she renamed the gods of old and gave Set his secret name only known to her. Chaos and Death would become the legacy of the Ptolemies.

Over the years it was reported that the body of Alexander had been viewed by various personages, Ptolemy and Olympias made sure there was a dup, Hesphastion was the perfect substitute since they resembled each other. This made it possible for no one to ever go looking for her son.

One has to wonder why exactly did Alexander And Olympias fall? Was there a 3rd party involved? One that stayed in the shadows that no one expected.

Cleopatra the daughter of Olympias, the one mostly forgotten by history.....Was she living in the shadows revenge?

What happened the day of her father's murder. Olympias knew it was going to happen, though she did not orchestrate the events. Olympias took great care to see that Cleopatra would be kept out of the way. But something went terribly wrong and she came out just at the point of seeing her mother throw her wedding ring into Philip dying face..........A scream came up and the young Cleopatra went to her father's side.....and he breathed his last. Before Olympias could pull her away, Cleopatra picked up the ring from a puddle of her father's blood.

The ring would stay hidden until the day of her brother's death.........Cleopatra saw her mother's pain when she felt her son's Alexander's spirit had left his body. She took the opportunity to place the ring where her mother would see it. Olympias had no idea who placed it there. Cleopatra was always good at not being detected.

The personality of Cleopatra had fragmented when she saw her father murdered. She always was a quiet one and like her brother, Olympias had taught her her ways. Did Philip make his daughter promise to avenge his death with that last breath? Possible. She was very close to her father, unlike Alexander.......In her anguish over the years had she used her powers to deceive the ones her father had made her promise to avenge him, even to the point of making a mother turn on her son and visa versa.

After Alexander died, there was only one left to complete the promise, her mother. Olympias was making plans to rescue Roxanne and her grandson, Cleopatra was to be by her side, but feigned illness and promised to come as soon as she was well with the rest of the fleet.....But it never came. And her mother had to surrender and ultimately die because of Cleopatra's oath in blood to her father.

What reincarnative dynamic would this produce? Olympias never knew 'the end of the story' She never knew who returned the ring. She believed her daughter all the way to the end....up until she looked into the eyes of her killer. Cleopatra on the other hand would live a karmic cycle of betrays with her mother in subsequent lives. It was always adversarial between them. Too bad Cleopatra didn't understand the dynamic that drove the assassination in the first place. Being a child she couldn't. Philip had become an abusive monster, not with just his family, whom he disowned, but with those he ruled....If she had known what was going on, maybe the aeons of ill will between mother and daughter would never have continued on for so long. But now the playing field is different. Olympias did not always know from where the maliciousness came to combat it.

But of all the evils that occurred, the worst would have been what happened between Olympias and her adopted step daughter Thessalonike. She was the daughter of Philip, by Nicesipolis, his mistress and a Thessalian witch that Olympias became friends with. When she died soon after child birth, she raised her daughter.........She kept her by her side more so that her own children and the bond was great. But in the end when Cassander captured Olympias, Thessalonike was captured also and was forced to watch her surrogate mother's execution and was forced to marry her murderer, Cassander and bear him 3 sons, who in the end, one of them, Antipater, murdered her.

So much evil a time of beauty and elegance. But in the end who REALLY was at fault for Alexander and Olympias' murders. There was a secret one who everyone trusted.....His name was Ptolemy Soter I. Though it was by Cassander's hand that the poison was delivered and by his decree Olympias was stoned, Ptolemy, the bastard child of Philip, with his winning words, got what he wanted every time and destroyed anyone who got in his way.

Yes Ptolemy....Though your hands were technically clean of the blood, you killed who ever got in your way. Your father was sick that way too. You can steal Alexander's body...You can steal my ring, but I have the ring back and I have Set at my command...And I know what you did.


We have lots of people who have been digging around searching for Alexander's Tomb. A woman swears it's in Siwa where he wanted to be buried. No. Despite it being the place where he received confirmation of his divinity in the Temple. No. Olympias knew it was an obvious place and over rode her son's wishes. Others say it was Alexandria where he was buried. Olympias knew that the region was geologically unsound and in time the secret place would be destroyed. And again it was an obvious place.But in the place named for him a clue lies, in the Catacombs of Shoqafa. The only two levels explored is the top two. The third level was flooded by the high level of ground water. There they found many bones of young males. What was this about? I ask if there isn't a 4th level, undiscovered. sealed off from ground water damage. Which I believe was made to flood to hide the other level.

I contend that some place unsuspected is where the tomb of Alexander was hidden away. A place of modern times with a secret of ages hidden deeper than Hades it's self. Am I being coy about it? Yes. I know exactly where to look... The tomb is in a region where the serpent sleeps near the son.

The other side speaks cryptically or is it signs written in the sand--A Coptic Church is bombed in Alexandria and civil unreast starts in Cairo. Clues to where Alexander sleeps? Oh yes. Again I know where and knew last year, and now energies are pointing the way.

The problem is that when it is found that something dangerous must be avoided by those who open it......The cleverness of the place chosen is not the only thing protecting it's location, but all the charms and spells...and yes, curses, placed on it by Olympias.

383 Coins Found
Archaeologists unearthed 383 bronze coins dating back to King Ptolemy III who ruled Egypt in the 3rd century B.C. and was an ancestor of the famed Cleopatra, the Egyptian antiquities authority announced Thursday.

The statement said one side of the coins were inscribed with hybrid Greek-Egyptian god Amun-Zeus, while the other side showed an eagle and the words Ptolemy and king in Greek.

Founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals, the Ptolemaic Dynasty ruled Egypt for some 300 years, fusing Greek and ancient Egyptian cultures.

The coins were found north of Qarun lake in Fayoum Oasis 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Cairo.

Other artifacts were unearthed in the area included three necklaces made of ostrich egg shell dated back to the 4th millennium B.C. and a pot of kohl eyeliner from the Ottoman Empire.

The objects will all be displayed in the new Egyptian museum under construction near the pyramids of Giza

This undated photo released by the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities on Thursday, April 22, 2010, shows some of 383 recently-unearthed bronze coins, said by the Supreme Council to be inscribed with the hybrid Greek-Egyptian god Amun-Zeus on one side, with an eagle and the words Ptolemy and king in Greek on the other side, dating back to King Ptolemy III who ruled Egypt in the 3rd century B.C. Descendants of one of Alexander the Great's generals, the Ptolemaic dynasty ruled Egypt for some 300 years, fusing Greek and ancient Egyptian cultures.

Queen Olympias

Coinage that had Zeus Amun on the rear always had a male on the other side. Not a woman. Even Arsinoe II had a Cornucopia design on the rear of her coins............Who was this woman who lays with Zeus? There was only one who made this claim. Alexander was their son.
