His name is depicted as a twist of flax and a pair of raised arms defining the stability of the Birkeland Current Magnetic Ropes. He was generally considered to be the son of Menhet and Khnum as Heka's stability helps with the well being and electrical nourishment of a celestial body.
Egyptians believed that with the help of Heka, they could influence the world of the gods and gain protection, healing and support. This is because through Heka, or the birkeland currents electricity is supplied to celestial bodies, that allows for the creation of Khnum, Ptah and other Gods or aspects of the Electric Universe.
The basic functions of Heka is detailed in the text called the Instruction for Merikara, Heka is explained as the divine gift of the sun god Ra in an honour to humankind. Birkeland currents flow from the Sun to Earth, like a gift from the Sun powering the celestial body, allowing life to flourish.
Heka is the supporting energy that connects the subjects, resources and other symbols of life with the almighty universe, which a magician must attempt to learn in order to work magic in an effective way.
