Then he must pass through the seven guarded gates he must fight snakes, crocodiles, and evil Gods try to trap him in nets. But he also gets help from the God Atum, and food and water from harhor. He also has to face 42 judges before his heart is weighed against the feather of truth. If his heart is heavy enough with sin, he will be gobbled up by a monster. If it is light, he will be saved.

The slicer will use a ceremonial flint knife to cut the body open.
This will be used to dry out the body once the organs have been removed
removing the organs
After the body has been cleaned it is taken to a place of embalming. Called the wabet.In order to remove some of the internal organs,a "slicer" priest makes a long cut along the left side of your body. your organs such as your liver, stomach, lungs and intestines are removed through the cut that the slicer priest made.The body is then washed out with palm wine and will be soaked in natron for fourty days to dry it out. The egyptians believed that the brain wouldnt be needed in the after life so they took a hook and pulled the brain out of the head and through their nose.Although the heart is left in the body because the egyptians believed that the heart will be needed in their after life.

canopic jars are used for storing the organs.Each jar is protected by one of the four sons of the god Horus and the lid of each jar is in the shape of its protecter gods head. The canopic jars are placed in a specially made box called a canopic chest. This will be stored in your tomb and should be placed as near to you as possible. Here are the steps to storing the organs.
1. After forty days remove from the natron and check that there is no moisture left in them.
2. If the organs are completely dried, they are ready to be wrapped in linen.
3. The organ can now be placed in its canopic jar. Ideally, the lid should fit tightly.
your lungs are stored in a jar protected by the god hapy, who was the head of a baboon.
your liver will be stored in a jar with the human head of the god Imsety on it.
your stomach is placed in a jar with the jackal head of the god Duamutef.
your intestines are kept in the jar which has a falcon head of the god Qebehseneuf.
After fourty days in natron the body is completely dried out. Their skin is shrivelled and wrinkled and they look like a piece of old leather. They really need help now, so its off to the per nefer,the 'beautiful house'. First their skin will be rubbed with oils to make it softer. Then the empty space where their organs were is filled with sawdust, rags and chaff. Other parts of their body are plumped up by pushing mud into tiny cuts in their skin. All you need now are false eyes and perhaps some false hair. You are almost looking alive again! Also false eyes can be made out of onions! As they have strong antiseptic qualities.They can also be stuffed into the body cavity.
