Eye of Horus Meaning Spiritual

Eye of horus meaning spiritual

The secret to enlightenment was taught to us by the ancient Egyptians.

The Eye of Horus is a well-known ancient Egyptian symbol found all over the world. Healing, protection, rejuvenation, regeneration, resurrection and perfection are all symbols associated with it.

    Art, anatomy, science and mythology are all included in the symbols. It is often referred to as the all-seeing eye as an allusion to the third eye.

    The relationship between this spiritual symbol and the brain will be the subject of this essay.

    This will help us decide how to treat or modify this complex organ. First of all, it should explain the historical context and form of the symbol.


    The sky gods Horus and Osiris had a son named God. Seth, the god of violence and chaos, assassinated the latter.

    Isis was in excruciating pain, but was determined to recover the 14 body parts of her husband that Seth had had her amputated.

    She succeeded and she resurrected him with the help of Thoth, Anubis and Nephthys. Osiris was resurrected, but Seth learned of Osiris' resurrection and killed him again.

    Horus was born when Isis disguised a pregnancy from a fearsome god and sought revenge for the murder of his father.

    Seth wounded Horus in one of the conflicts and tore his eyes in six pieces. With the help of Hathor, Horus was healed by Thoth, the god of writing and magic.

    In the final battle, the latter defeated Seth.

    The Eye of Horus has become a myth.

    Eye of Horus and Math

    The symbolic eye is made up of six pieces, each assigned a set of numeric values ​​whose numerator is 1 and the ruler is a power of 2.

    It is connected to our five senses, with one factor related to cognition and wisdom.

    1/2 of the eye is on the right side (olfaction)

    The diameter of the pupil is 1/4 inch (vision).

    Eyebrows 1/8 inch thick (thought and wisdom)

    The left side of the eye is 1/16 inch long (hearing)

    The bent tail is 1/32 inches long (to taste).

    The teardrop is 1/64 inch (touch) in diameter.

    The missing component is thought to reflect Thoth's magical powers as the fractional sum is up to 63/64.

    Limbic system of the brain

    Emotions and memories are related to this area of ​​the brain. Everything from your finger movements to your heart rate is controlled and coordinated.

    The Eye of Horus depicts the hidden part of the brain where each individual has the power of enlightenment.

    We have noted that the pineal gland, located in the center of the brain, is sometimes known as the all-seeing eye or third eye.

    It remains dormant until the soul reaches a certain degree of spirituality. The ancient Egyptians believed that nurturing our limbic brain was essential for spiritual enlightenment through the third eye.

    The Eye of Horus teaches us something.

    Symbols show what we need to modify in our body to improve our soul. Understanding how the limbic system functions can help the brain heal or remodel.

    This system consists of the following components:

    The hypothalamus controls emotions.

    The hippocampus is associated with memory and helps us understand our surroundings.

    The amygdala helps coordinate emotional responses to objects around you.

    Trauma, such as experiencing or seeing abuse, neglect, or violence can damage this system, resulting in sadness, anger, PTSD, and anxiety.

    According to the ancient Egyptians, relaxing the limbic system restores and reorganizes the brain.

    Taking a look inside and learning everything you need to know about this system is the first step towards transformation.

    What does the Eye of Horus mean?

    The Eye of Horus was a symbol of protection, sacrifice, healing, rebirth and kingship in ancient Egypt. It is also used to repel evil forces from both the living and the dead.

    The origin of the Horus Eye is unknown.

    According to Egyptian mythology, the Egyptian pharaoh Osiris was given all the lush lands and his brother Set was given the barren desert. Jealousy has set Osiris assassinated, succeeded to his throne and threw Egypt into chaos.

    Set not only killed Osiris, but split his corpse into 14 and spread it across the area to prevent access to the underworld. To reach the underworld, the ancient Egyptians thought that your body had to be whole, embalmed, and buried.

    Osiris' wife Isis and Osiris' son Horus, along with their families, set out on a mission to retrieve all of his body. Isis used her powers to revive him, allowing him to enter the underworld to become the god of death, the god of endless life, and the judge of death.

    Horus was fully brought up by Isis, and when he matured he embarked on a quest for revenge for his father. Horus finally overcame the set after a series of violent confrontations, but not each of them was seriously injured. Horus lost one eye and Set lost a testicle.

    According to one version of the story, Set pulled out the eye of Horus and smashed it into six pieces. According to another story, Horus sacrificed his eyes to resurrect his father. The Eye of Horus became a symbol of sacrifice as a result of this narrative interpretation.

    Either way, Hathor, the goddess of sky, woman, fertility, and love, and Thoth, the goddess of writing, magic, knowledge and the moon, miraculously healed the eye of Horus. The ancient Egyptians believed that the Eye of Horus had healing powers because it had been healed by magic.

    What role does it play in today's society?

    The Eye of Horus is still worn today to provide health, rejuvenation, energy and vitality to those who wear it as well as protecting against evil forces.

    They are installed in homes to provide physical and mental safety and security. It is also used in magical spells to dispel bad energy and attract good energy.

    The connection between the eye of Horus and the human brain

    Eye of the Mind is another word for Horus' Eye. Remarkably, when the Eye of Horus was superimposed on a cross section of the human brain, each of the six sections appear to correspond to the major sensory centers of our five senses and the brain's largest white collection, the corpus callosum. A material fiber that facilitates communication between the two halves.

    What is surprising about this conversation is that the ancient Egyptians, masters of medicine and anatomy, seemed to understand the complex processes of the central nervous system without the aid of modern technology. Below is a list of the parts of the eye of Horus that correspond to different parts of the brain.

    Smell: The olfactory triangle is the triangular part on the right side of the eye.

    The sagittal adhesion corresponds to the center of the eye.

    The shape and location of the corpus callosum corresponds to the shape and location of the eyebrows.

    Hearing: Brodmann areas 41 and 42, the focal points of human hearing, are located in the left triangle of the eye.

    Taste: Taste pathways in the brain are represented by twisted tail-shaped items.

    Tactile: Teardrop-shaped objects resemble the shape and location of somatosensory pathways that transmit various bodily emotions.

    The Eye of Horus and the subject of mathematics

    In the eyes of Horus there is another interesting aspect of symbolism related to mathematics. The eye is divided into 6 independent components (6 eye slices separated by a Set, which are also related to various parts of the brain), and each component is assigned a fraction as follows:

    The outer triangle of the eye is indicated by the number 12.

    14 represents the pupil and 1/8 represents the eyebrow.

    The inner triangle of the eye corresponds to 1/16th.

    1/64 represents the teardrop shape and 1/32 corresponds to the curled "tail".

    If you add the fractions you get 63/64 or 98.43% instead of 100% as expected. The missing part is assumed to be either the spell was withheld by the magic when Thoth restores the eye, or the magic is the missing component itself. Another way to express it is that nothing is perfect.

    The Eye of Horus serves as the lunar constellation.

    Horus' right eye was thought to symbolize the sun, and his left eye was thought to symbolize the moon, suggesting that he presided over all the skies. It is said that Horus' left eye was cut out, so Horus's eye also depicts the setting of the moon. The Eye of Horus was plucked out on a moonless night in the sky, the full moon signifying a magically repaired eye.

    The Eye of Horus and the Holy Family

    Horus' name means "a hawk that flies above all other inhabitants of this country." The sky god Horus is often represented as a hawk's head or falcon. The Eye of Horus with distinctive teardrops on the bottom is shaped like a hawk's eye.

    The Eye of Horus also appeared on the Throne and Majestic Robe. This is due to the ancient Egyptian belief that Pharaoh is the living incarnation of Horus, and that when one dies, his soul is passed on to the next.

    Eye of Horus and pineal gland

    The pineal gland is a small pine cone-shaped gland that points towards the center of the brain, about eye level. The eminent philosopher Descartes called it "the first seat of the soul." It is also called the “third eye” because it has to be the link between the physical realm and the spiritual realm.

    Many civilizations around the world believe in the concept of a third eye. The chakra between the eyebrows is said to represent a conduit to divine awareness in ancient Indian literature. In China, closing your eyes and concentrating in different qigong postures between your eyebrows is called “third eye training”. This concentration helps the student to reach a higher level of meditation by tuning to the proper "vibration" of the universe. The Eye of Horus was the third eye of Egypt.

    Lucid dreaming, mental telepathy, extrasensory perception, and spiritual vision are all thought to be possible through the pineal gland.


    According to the ancient Egyptians, the eye was more than just a passive organ for observing the world. It had to have certain characteristics related to protection, behavior, and anger. Eyes were believed to possess powerful powers and the ability to cast fearsome spells just by looking at them. It is also believed that the bad eye can be countered by the "good eye", leading to a belief in the protective abilities of the Eye of Horus.

    The Eye of Horus is depicted in hieroglyphs with seven unique symbols, each meaning "to take action" or "one who takes action." Sailors used that power by painting their ships to protect them and to ward off evil forces on their perilous journeys. In this sense, it is compared to the evil eye sign.

    It was also used in funeral monuments and amulets to provide safety and protection for the deceased traveling to the underworld, as well as ensure a wonderful and safe afterlife.
