It is known that the pharaoh Akhenaten was assassinated with poison by the Egyptian priests in order to restore the many Gods to replace Aten. Dr. Norman relived that death in this life and almost died because of the reliving! He of course, overcame the attempt by the dark forces to again get rid of him!  

Akhenaten (meaning "living spirit of Aten") known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died perhaps in 1336 BC or 1334 BC. He is especially noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism and introducing worship centered on the Aten, which is sometimes described as monotheistic or henotheistic. An early inscription likens the Aten to the sun as compared to stars, and later official language avoids calling the Aten a god, giving the solar deity a status above mere gods.
Akhenaten tried to bring about a departure from traditional religion, yet in the end it would not be accepted. After his death, traditional religious practice was gradually restored, and when some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the Eighteenth Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as "the enemy" in archival records.
He was all but lost from history until the discovery, in the 19th century, of Amarna, the site of Akhetaten, the city he built for the Aten. Early excavations at Amarna by Flinders Petrie sparked interest in the enigmatic pharaoh, whose tomb was unearthed in 1907 in a dig led by Edward R. Ayrton. Interest in Akhenaten increased with the discovery in the Valley of the Kings, at Luxor, of the tomb of King Tutankhamen, who has been proved to be Akhenaten's son according to DNA testing in 2010.

Some recent debate has focused on the extent to which Akhenaten forced his religious reforms on his people. Certainly, as time drew on, he revised the names of the Aten, and other religious language, to increasingly exclude references to other gods; at some point, also, he embarked on the wide-scale erasure of traditional gods' names, especially those of Amun.
Following Akhenaten's death, change was gradual at first. Within a decade a comprehensive political, religious and artistic reformation began promoting a return of Egyptian life to the norms it had followed during his father's reign. Much of the art and building infrastructure created during Akhenaten's reign was defaced or destroyed in the period following his death, particularly during the reigns of Horemheb and the early Nineteenth Dynasty kings. Stone building blocks from Akhenaten's construction projects were later used as foundation stones for subsequent rulers' temples and tombs.
Styles of art that flourished during this short period are markedly different from other Egyptian art. In some cases, representations are more naturalistic, especially in depictions of animals and plants, of commoners, and in a sense of action and movement—for both non royal and royal people. However, depictions of members of the court, especially members of the royal family, are extremely stylized, with elongated heads, protruding stomachs, heavy hips, thin arms and legs, and exaggerated facial features. Questions also remain whether the beauty of Nefertiti is portraiture or idealism. Significantly, and for the only time in the history of Egyptian royal art, Akhenaten's family are shown taking part in decidedly naturalistic activities, showing affection for each other, and being caught in mid-action (in traditional art, a pharaoh's divine nature was expressed by repose, even immobility).

Now as I read in the Encyclopedia about Akhenaten (1300 B.C.), I learn that his head was extremely large; in fact, after they exhumed and examined his skull, history states the Akhenaten skull to be the largest human skull ever found in the world! It carries through today, too, not only as the infant, for He has always had great difficulty finding a hat sufficiently large.

An interesting memory just came to me, how one day he awoke in the morning (after a couple of days searching for a hat), with the inner knowing that a certain store in a nearby town (Los Angeles) had a hat to fit. He dashed out immediately to get it. Upon entering the shop he told the salesman, "You have my hat here!" Of course, the man was astonished when
looking at his large head and questioned his remark but Ernest told him exactly where, in the back of the store to get it (as He viewed it psychically)
, and sure enough, the man came out with it! Ernest put it on and it was the necessary 7-3/4 oversize!

One only needs to study the Unariun Science, then read the historical recountings of his teachings as Akhenaten, as Anaxagoras, and as Jesus to be able to see the continuous similarity, the golden thread of truth running through these various missions, headed by this Infinite Mind we now refer to as the Unariun Moderator (Ernest Norman). Even the elegant poetry which Akhenaten expressed carries this same high infinite expanse. One need not be a mystic to conceive they came from the same Intelligence, as He has portrayed in his several books of parables and poetry in this present lifetime. The one noticeable difference in the works is, that in the present, much has been added due to the scientific age that it is and which time to come will further prove.

As has been related before, that our Moderator is a most humble and unpretentious person, this too, you will find pointed up in the existing historical accounts with Akhenaten, what a very humble person he was, how he refused to abide in the great palaces and temples but instead, found and lived in an unobtrusive abode several miles distant from the throngs of worshipful eyes of the people; how he loved to walk through the streets and parks with his family of five daughters (some say six) and wife, Nefertiti, passing the time of day, holding hands as they walked as one of the towns-people. But the people did not approve; the Egyptians wanted a god to look up to and to worship. He is fighting this same opposition today and it was no different with him when he was Jesus! Because a Learned One comes with great Intelligence, they want to make of him a god or a saint to be worshiped!

Because He understood the Scientific principles of life, He could help them unlock the many psychic blocks generated in former lifetimes and due, also, to the great healing powers He projected unto them, whereby many persons realized various healings, they believed him to be one to be worshipped and venerated-and which was the last thing He wanted for so long as they gave another this power over them, they would not learn to develop their own potentials and possibilities! He taught in these former lives exactly as He writes today, how man can help himself, heal and change himself, develop his own spiritual nature and likewise, through the eons of time, become one of the Infinite Minds. Just as He taught them in Jerusalem, "Greater things than I have done shall ye do also!" And this is the Message today; He has brought the know-how for man to learn to develop this inner nature, his Higher Self.

For the greater part of the world, man is slow to want to change or to want to improve himself; he is quite satisfied with his lowly lot in life and refuses to do anything about it, but for those so ready, so desirous and willing to put forth the effort, there are no limitations. Of this I have proven in my own personal overcoming, and I still continue to prove!

Referring back again to the time and personality of Akhenaten, most interested persons are familiar with the aten of Akhenaten, now represented as the atom; of his great efforts to change the beliefs of the people from that of their many false gods, and He presented to them the true science of creation. As was mentioned, the golden thread of Truth is most strikingly visible as it is seen winding its way from these distant past lives and teachings through to the present; His teachings of the power coming from the sun and as being the source of all creation is depicted in many ways, times and places throughout the tombs, the many walls and buildings of the ancient remains throughout Egypt and other countries nearby as they have been etched in the rock caves, etc., as the sun with many arms extending out from it in symbology. Yet, these writings were done as early as 1400-1300 B.C., and the truth of the Science (of living) remains the same today, yesterday, and in the millions of years into the future.
