SA – the breath of life; the sa is the life force, the breath of life that comes into the human body at conception.
SEKHEM – power; the word means power the word has also been associated with energy, particularly kundalini. Sekhem is the power that animates the Sahu. It is the power that leads one to spiritual consciousness.
SAHU – the spiritual body; Sahu, the spiritual body, one of the five bodies of each human according to Egyptian cosmology. Sekhem is associated with the awakening of the five bodies, particularly the Sahu – the Sahu was made conscious through spiritual practice.

The mantra, Sa Sekhem Sahu – is translated one way as
“with each breath, divine strength enters my highest being.”
