Eye of Horus/Eye of Ra (Udjat, Wedjat)

Click for enlargementDesigned to resemble the eye of a falcon, this symbol is called the Eye of Ra or Eye of Horus represents the right eye of the Egyptian Falcon God Horus. As the udjat (or utchat), it represented the sun, and was associated with the Sun God Ra (Re). The mirror image, or left eye, represented the moon, and the God Tehuti (Thoth).  (A very similar concept of the sun and moon as eyes appears in many religious traditions, such as the Celtic tale of the hand of Nuada.)

According to legend, the left eye was torn from Horus by his murderous brother Seth, and magically restored by Thoth, the God of magick. After the restoration, some stories state, Horus made a gift of the eye to Osiris, which allowed this solar deity to rule the underworld. The story of this injury is probably an allusion to the phases of the moon as the eye which is “torn out” every month.

Together, the eyes represent the whole of the universe, a concept similar to that of the Taoist Yin-yang symbol. Spiritually, the right eye reflects solar, masculine energy, as well as reason and mathematics. The left eye reflects fluid, feminine, lunar energy, and rules intuition and magick. Together, they represent the combined,transcendent power of Horus.

The Eye of Horus was believed to have healing and protective power, and it was used as a protective amulet, and as a medical measuring device, using the mathematical proportions of the eye to determine the proportions of ingredients in medical preparations) to prepare medications.

The Masonic all seeing eye, the Eye of Providence symbol found on American money, and our modern Rx pharmaceutical symbol are all descended from the Eye of Horus.

The Symbols are keys to other dimensions if you are lucky enough to be granted permission to use them and Thoth gives wisdom and initiates those who seek the wisdom of the secret knowledge as in days of old the Halls of Amenti are real. The secrets are real and the geometry is very real as well…. for those who seek the Ancient wisdom seek the Emerald Tablets and read about Universal Law and Sacred Geometry including Author like Drunvalo Melchizedek…..and also Janosh….. And BTW I don’t think Jesus condemns the study of other religions and deities I think he does Condemn the people getting lost in their own lust for power greed and the misuse of all really in the name or behind the guise of any religion really I mean man can really fuck up a good thing! These Ascended Ones came to be way showers and somehow along the way we deemed them gods when our abilities were just lying dormant waiting for us to step into their fullness when they are telling us to wake up and do as they did……Why would a higher vibrational being in physical form like Jesus for instance say these works you shall do even greater…..if he didn’t already know we could? People come on. Jesus was not a Christian and Buddha was not a Buddhist either….. we get locked into these beliefs that other people drill into our heads as children, adults what have you, and never seek anything beyond that we think we have arrived yet more blood has been shed in the name of Christ and Christianity the any other religion in the history of the world! Look don’t take my word for it seek for your self. Show me one way and I’ll will show you all the ways that have been scattered abroad and spread diluted in a vast sea of religion and if you study them all i say find the similarities and you’ll be on to something that never changed over time. But man can’t leave a good thing alone has to tweek it over time and there are some who prefer staying in Ignore ance! Ignorance is ignore……ance and it can be a choice or someone really just not knowing but even if that person jumped off a cliff The Law of Gravity would pull him to his death..be a seeker of wisdom not to prove it wrong but to prove what is right and good and wonderful so we can actually take some responsibility for our action and change the situations we have created on this planet rather than wait for an Ascended Master to return….He is already here its the Consciousnesses and its a part of us

I don’t wish to point fingers, and say you’re wrong or you’re right, the fact is I am a spiritual person I believe in the divine and the power of light, but I refuse to believe one being controls my freewill, isn’t that why we have freewill to be free, I believe alot of souls here at present are older than this planet, and all souls are divine and its your actions in this life and previous ones that taint your soul, and keep you earth bound, I belief is this planet isn’t the center of the universe, nor is it the only planet with life, they are billions of galazies with trillions of planets, no doubt alot of them will be like this one. To me the idea that aliens do not exist is not only INCREDIBLY NIEVE, but INCREDIBLY ARROGANT, but yet I’m meant to believe that one being is responsible for all life in the universe, PLEASE WAKE UP.

There is an interesting paradox to freewill, first of all none of us really have it , it has us, we are slaves to it.We have to eat we have to drink sleep etc.It’s a bit like saying I have the freewill to smoke.Freewill is dependent on the choices we have which aren’t much.To quote a hindu sage,”true freewill is doing what you dont want to do”.If God is truly all things he needs nothing and therefore has no freewill.The god of wine Dionysus doesn’t drink because he is intoxication.Freewill implies incompletion.As mortals thats our plight.I find myself continually saying “where there is a will there is somebody in the way.”

Kel I completely agree with you! And I am writing a book on the subject.

There were souls before there were bodies, and there were other bodies before there were humans!

One can be spiritual without believing in God/Goddess. It’s unfortunate and ironic that it was the idea of “salvation” that brought humanity to its doom. There is nothing superior and inferior. People need to open their eyes (the third eye) and realise that we are all the same form of energy and we are free.

Marina, please don’t take this as an attack, but trying to express what we believe. In no way am I trying to attack you or have an attitude or anything like that. I know one cannot tell because you’re reading my words and not hearing my comments. I’m just a direct kinda person.

Reply

Skigh July 3, 2012 at 7:53 am

Marina because we Christians know that Christ was in existance before HE came to this earth. Human knowledge may have come after other beliefs, but one thing many don’t understand is that Christ was alive way before the earth was created. The bible even tells you this. Jesus is the WORD (in the flesh). The bible says that IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS GOD. GOD and Jesus is are one. Until one comes into the full acceptance of God and HIS Son, they will not understand what is being said. So please don’t knock what we believe because of whatever you believe. Jesus was not in Human form as of yet, but HE has always been in Spirit.

We have all “always been” in spirit, before coming here to Earth. The “story” of Jesus is a story of you. You can believe whatever you want, but it doesn’t change the truth of the matter. The entire story line of “Jesus” has been borrowed from at least 10 different cultures that appeared 1000s of years before the Christian story.
Truth is what it is. If you tell it as a “Christian” one, and hang onto that, that’s your business. It doesn’t make it the only right way or the only way to understand the reality of who and what we are on the inside. This is not a debate and I’m not trying to quibble. Simple reality is that the entire Bible was written for your learning. LEARN something without holding onto the dogma and you’re getting there. Jesus despised religion and religious people. He encouraged meditation and told his disciplined one’s that the kingdom was within them. Yet, Christians patiently wait for Jesus to “return” on a white horse and rescue them. It’s quite pathetic to literally believe this as a physical reality.

Peace.

the word made flesh………we speak words all the time are the words we speak made flesh???? um depends on how you perceive……I attribute this not only to Master Jesus but also to the Laws of Manifestation. Man said let there be Pepsi and there was Pepsi….I don’t mean to offend with my sense of humor but i also refuse to live in the box i broke free from long ago…..how much is man responsible for what he thinks speaks and creates because we are created in his image correct? Its time to demonstrate….and live it

That is interesting food for thought Clara. Although I am not sure I agree.

Why is it that every time there is symbology of a different religion and different nature that predates christianity, there is always a comment about the workings of JEsus Christ?

Clara August 27, 2011 at 5:59 am

It is not dangerous and therfore cannot be harmful. Drawing the eye gives you drawings of the eye. Nothing more. All symbols, and that includes letters of the alphabet are simply symbols until you work and imbue them with elements of yourself, through contemplation and meditation. Then an archetypal symbol will activate an archetypal element within you. God forms are and always have been a way for the human mind to grapple with concepts beyond our ability to fully comprehend. There is nothing remotely satanic about these god forms, satan being a christian concept and not one universally held and one certainly misdunderstood. Satan was ‘created’ by humans as a form of control over the ignorant masses. Energy is neutral, it is human consciousness which imbues it with evil or good.

I don’t quite get the difference between the Eye of Horus and the Eye of Ra. Are they two different things? If they call it the Eye of Horus because Horus lost it in battle, why do they call it the Eye of Ra?

The true message of Christ was that everything is not what it seems. The world you know is a fabrication symbolized by “babylon.” The ancient “gods” said they would return and Christ said He would destroy them when they do. They are very evil, but also very beautiful, wise, and graceful, as well as self-righteous. Soon they will return and “the whole world will be deceived” (which it already is, most people accept “the masonic laws of science”). Pharoh, you have been given a message from God. The wolf’s paw represents that these beings are LIARS, “wolves in sheeps clothing.” Their sons and daughters have been living amongst us and running secret cults for thousands of years, treating man as cattle, because they were promised by these “gods” (satans) that one day they will return and make their sons and daughters immortal. Of course, this is a lie. All the devil wants is to prove God wrong, and he does this by corrupting man, and turning him on himself. Almost every war was a staged satanic sacrifice. I know I’m stretching this out a bit far, but think about D-Day. There was only about a half-mile of beach fortifications. Why didn’t we just go around? Our leaders sit around drinking tea and planning the next war while the current ones unfold. Wars are not wars, they are sacrifices designed to advance time and bring the return of the “gods.” They will be here soon. Christ promised He would save us and destroy them…also He points all this out in his parables.

Pharoh, I can explain that dream. Anyone using these symbols is a “wolf in sheeps clothing.” You have been given a prophecy or vision in a dream by God. The Bible says that all the chosen will dream dreams and hear prophecies during the end-times. Christ tells us “nothing that is hidden will remain hidden.” Christ was against the use of symbols and secret cults and obviously the worship of satans (ancient gods). This is the true message of Christ, and what He meant when He tells us to “come out of her (Babylon).” Are you Christian? That is a fascinating dream.

This symbol breaks up into six sub-symbols representing three bodies (Physical, Ethereal (Life Flow, Senses), Astral (Mind Flow, Emotions)) and three Intelligences (Physical (I feel), Intellectual (I think), Intuitive (I know)). The seventh sub-symbol is the Iris; the Window of Spirit.

I have been dreaming a lot lately.I have dreamed about the left eye of thoth.It is saying that thoth and anubis are one(1).a figure wearing an aparatus on the left side of the face >it was a eye symbol with a type of stone in it. a yellow /orange color .It said ,its a bears claw it was a eye symbol with a type of stone in it. a yellow /orange color .It said ,its a bears claw <i said no Its a wolf claw.It smiled and agreed. you know the truth.
you were bang on apart from the apparatus though. you described the eye of god or cap stone that was rejected. god dwells n a rock, Christ was known as the rock.
