The All-Seeing Eye: Sacred Origins of a Hijacked Symbol

All Seeing EyeDavid Percival, Guest
Waking Times

Is the all-seeing eye a symbol of divine omniscience or sinister influence? Today it symbolises control and domination by a shadowy elite, but its original use was quite different. This article traces its use and meaning back to ancient times, when it was a symbol of divine providence, powerfully representing spiritual truth and awakening.

Humanity is Losing Its Precious Symbology

The all-seeing eye is a powerful esoteric symbol which is widely misunderstood and misused today; few know what it originally stood for. It was originally symbolic of a higher spiritual power or God, a watchful caretaker of humanity or an awakened spiritual part within. But these days it has quite different associations.

Today the all-seeing eye is more likely to be seen as an “Illuminati” symbol of control and surveillance by elites who to a large degree run the show on this planet at this time. This is because, over time, dark sinister forces have taken over esoteric symbols that for thousands of years were used to convey positive, helpful, uplifting spiritual messages and principles. The all-seeing eye is a prime example of how spiritual symbols have been hijacked and inverted. There has not really been much push to understand the symbol’s original meaning or to reclaim it for the spiritual significance it first conveyed.

This is the first in a series of articles I am presenting that will take a closer look at individual symbols, and delve into their origins and history to uncover their deeper esoteric significance. I am writing these as part of an effort to reclaim these positive esoteric symbols and restore them to their previously esteemed state.

Universal Nature of Symbolism

Symbolism has long been used by humanity to communicate ideas which are best crystallised in a compact form. As the well-known saying goes, a picture tells a thousands words! Esoteric symbols are alive today as they were in the ancient past, but there is much confusion surrounding their usage, history, intent, and meaning.

In ordinary life we use symbols to show at a glance important information such as traffic and road signs amongst many other symbols which are widespread and common today. Some other examples are corporate logos and certification statuses.

Symbolism is also especially used in the communication of non-physical, spiritual ideas, phenomena, and processes.

The all-seeing eye is one of the most powerful and widely used  and misused  symbols of all. In this article I trace its use from the earliest of times through to the 18th century, and show what the symbol originally stood for. My next article will examine its use from 18th century freemasonry onwards, and show how it has since been hijacked and misused.

Use of the All-Seeing Eye in Ancient Cultures

India

Shiva-All-Seeing-Eye-Statue-300x291

Shiva’s third eye

We perhaps find the precursor to what eventually became known as the all-seeing eye in the Rig Veda, a sanskrit text thought to have been written over 3,000 years ago and one of the oldest known texts. In it there are many references to the sun and to other deities as being an eye in heaven, as an eye which reveals creation, or an eye which never closes.

One can liken this to being symbolic of a high level of awakened consciousness that advanced spiritual beings have and which an ordinary person can potentially attain.

The Hindu god Shiva has three eyes. The third eye or brow chakra eye is known as the eye of Shiva, possessor of all knowledge, which when opened will destroy anything it sees. Thus it is a symbol of knowledge which destroys evil and ignorance.

This again can be likened to an awakened higher spiritual part of a person which sees the truth of things and can then eliminate within a person’s psyche that which is opposite to and blocks divine consciousness from manifesting more. In this way it is a “creative destruction” of evil to transform it into higher consciousness.

Even in modern times, the eye of Shiva is used in jewellery to give protection against evil to its wearer and to gain wisdom and understanding from the world, from life events and from the self, for positive transformation.

Buddha_all_seeing_eye

Buddha’s all seeing eye

In Buddhism, Buddha is referred to as the Eye of the World. It is typical for temples in Nepal to display a graphic of the “Eyes of Buddha” as shown to the right – notice it includes a mark for the “third eye” as well. The eyes are also known as the eyes of wisdom and compassion.

Statues of Buddha typically show a dot in the mid-brow to represent the third eye.

Ancient Egypt

Eye of Osiris

It is interesting to find that the Egyptian hieroglyph for their god Osiris contains an eye as shown below. So as with  Hinduism and Buddhism we find a spiritual deity being represented in ancient times as an eye.

Osiris

Hieroglyph for “Osiris” contains an eye

Eye of Horus

In ancient Egypt, the all-seeing eye was known as the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Ra and also formed part of the symbology of Wad-jet. Through various myths they were symbols of protection, healing and restoration. The left eye of Horus was said to be the moon and his right eye the sun.

Wadjet-Eye-of-Horus-All-Seeing

Horus was a falcon-headed sun god and it could be said the Eye of Horus was styled like an eye of a lanner falcon with its marking beneath the eye.

Could the Eye of Horus represent parts of the brain used to manifest consciousness?

It is also very interesting to note that the drawing of the Eye of Horus very much matches the cross section of the mid brain where the thalamus, the pineal and pituitary glands are situated. The pineal gland is often said to be the “third eye” and a centre of spirituality and of spiritual insight, which can be developed in a person.

It’s as if the Eye of Horus could be a depiction of the thalamus as the eye ball with the corpus callosum the eye brow above and the medulla oblongata (brain stem) and the hypothalamus being the two markings below. If this is what they were drawing but calling it the Eye of Horus, does it suggest they considered the mid brain to be the seat of consciousness or even of divine consciousness or “Horus consciousness”? Horus being a sun god and symbolic of the universal Christ, a spiritual force which a suitably prepared person can merge with.

Middle East/Asia – Hamsa

A Jewish Hamsa

In the Middle East the all-seeing eye has been known in the form of a hand-eye symbol called either Hamsa, Khamsa or Hamesh.

It’s the symbol of an eye in the palm of a hand, usually the right hand. Again it is a symbol of protection against the evil eye (bad luck caused by jealousy from others) and danger in general and can been seen as a good luck charm in that way.

Detail from “The Divine World” by Kahil Gibran

It is also known as the hand of Fatima in Islam and the hand of Miriam in Judaism. In India it is known as Humsa Hand. The Jains also have a form of the Hamsa in their symbolism with the word ahimsa (meaning non-violence) inside a wheel instead of where the eye would be. The Hamsa has been used for thousands of years and is still in use today as amulets, charms or wall hangings. It would seem to have its origins from ancient Mesopotamia with the hand of Ishtar being a symbol of divine protection although it did not contain the eye in the palm.

A more Christian-themed representation of the Hamsa is an art work called “The Divine World” by Kahlil Gibran, a Lebanese Maronite Catholic prominent in the early 20th century as a poet, painter, writer, philosopher, theologian.

In Greece and Turkey they have something similar to the Hamsa which they call a “Nazar”. It is just an eye without the hand but it is used in the same way and has the same meaning as the Hamsa, that is, to ward off the evil eye, in the form of amulets or hanging ornaments usually made from blue glass.

Similarly in Buddhism there is the “eye of Buddha” amulet to ward off the evil eye.

The symbol of an eye in a hand also appears in Aztec and Mayan cultures and in Native American artworks although archaeologists are not sure what meaning it had for these cultures.

To the right is a Native American example referred to as “The Rattlesnake Disc” which was unearthed by a farmer in Moundville, Alabama in the 1800′s. Some archaeologists think its symbolism may have represented a portal to spiritual dimensions. It is the most elaborately decorated artwork found at Moundville giving rise to the belief it was of the most importance to its creators. Other artworks found there also contain the hand-eye symbol.

Ancient Ecuador

There is also the amazing discovery in 1984 in La Mana, central Ecuador, of an ancient artefact referred to as the Black Pyramid amongst 300 artefacts found there of unknown origin.

It is not known what culture they come from and the many objects found are baffling and seemingly out of place for this part of the world, such as an object designed as a hooded King Cobra of south east Asia. Cobras don’t exist in South America.

The so-called Black Pyramid is made from black stone with an eye at the apex. The stone has gold inlays forming 13 levels of “bricks” and an eye at the top. These inlays glow when under black light. Overall it looks like a representation of the great pyramid of Giza (7,470 miles away) and also amazingly just like the eye pyramid symbol used on the Great Seal of America and the US $1 bill.

It is also interesting to note the cobra artefact has another similarity with ancient Egypt where the raised cobra is associated with the Eye of Horus/Ra and Wad-jet in their protective aspects with it being worn on the foreheads of Pharaohs at the mid-brow right where the third eye is located.  This symbolises the raising of a person’s energies to a higher vibration which internally leads to the awakening of psychic faculties such as those latent in the third eye.

LaMana_pyramid_all_seeing_eye

It is not known how old these objects are as dating them has not been possible but they are thought to pre-date the known ancient cultures of the region. There is also a pre-Sanskrit type language (making it very old) engraved on some of the objects including on the underside of the black pyramid where there are also markings which appear to map out the stars of the Orion constellation, which the pyramids at Giza also map. The 4 pre-Sanskrit markings are thought to translate as saying “the son of the creator comes”.

Given the care taken to create this object it would seem to have been an important symbol for its creators although it is not clear how they interpreted it.

Ancient Greek

In the Hymns of Orpheus, the hymn To The Sun describes it variously as thus;

as an “eternal eye with broad survey” ;

and compares it to being the “Father of ages” ;

and as “Immortal Jove, all searching, bearing light” ;

then later as the “Great eye of Nature and the starry skies” ;

followed by “Faithful defender, and the eye of right”

So here we see in an ancient text of the western world similar representation of the sun like that presented in the ancient text of the east, the Rig Veda, as being an eye of the creator and an all-seeing never closing eye watching over and protecting the good.

Christianity

“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” (Jesus in Matthew 6:22)

“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their cry;” (Psalms 34:15)

“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3)

The_Talpiot_Tomb_triangle_circle

Does the Talpiot tomb display an all seeing eye?

A possible first known use of the all-seeing eye symbol in Judeo-Christianity is the so-called “Jesus tomb” from 1st century AD discovered in 1980, which uses a similar symbol over the entrance to the tomb. Regardless of whose tomb it is, could this be a first known or early use of the eye-pyramid symbol in the Judeo-Christian tradition?

In Christianity, the all-seeing eye or “Eye of Providence” or “Eye of God” has been used as a symbol from at least the 16th century as seen in the following painting below which depicts a scene from Luke 24: 13-32 where after his resurrection, Jesus has supper with two disciples.

Pontormo_All_Seeing_Eye

16th century Christian painting – dated 1525 by Italian artist Pontormo (student of Da Vinci), called Supper in Emmaus – depicts Luke 24: 13-32

The eye is inside a triangle, and surrounded by rays of light, with the triangle representing the holy trinity and the whole symbol meaning God’s omnipresence and all-seeing eye watching over creation.

Some claim that the eye in triangle symbol was added to the painting soon after the Council of Trent 1545- 1563, to conform with its canons and decrees but even if that is so that would still place its use in the 16th century.

In Alsace, France, the fresco painted above the altar of the Abbey Church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste (1763) shows a large example of the eye-in-pyramid symbol, with the rays of glory breaking through the clouds.

Another example is on the Aachen cathedral in Germany. It was originally built in the late 8th century under the Emperor Charlemagne and then enlarged in the middle ages with various other changes and updates along the way. It would seem the all-seeing eye symbol was placed on the cathedral in 1766 to mark the renovations done that year.

Note that these first two examples pre-date the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati (1776) although Freemasonry already existed in England and Europe by this time. Perhaps it was a masonic influence that saw these symbols used on these cathedrals yet it was not until about 1797 that masons are regarded as beginning to use the eye-in-pyramid symbol.

The eye-in-pyramid symbol also features prominently on the front facade of the Hartegbrugkerk Church in Leiden, the Netherlands, built in 1835-36. The Latin words “Hic Domus Dei est et Porta Coeli” translates to “This is the House of God and the Gateway to Heaven.”

Conclusion

As we have seen, throughout history there has been a strong tradition across time, continents and cultures of using eye symbolism to generally represent a benevolent creator force watching over, helping and protecting humanity and to represent a spiritual part within.

In my next article I will continue to trace the use of the all-seeing eye symbolism over the last 240 years and reveal how it has been inverted and increasingly used for sinister aims in current times.

    well first off I believe in god cause im here and I just didn’t get here by a big bang theory but all this illuminati ritual their doing on this music videos and Grammys super bowls is sick using the lost seeing eye as a puppet control kids and peoples mind for greater power for the devil and if the lost seeing eye is gods eye then their mocking god for a fact for money fame and souls for the devil so they can gain more power of evil doings I wish they would be smited down for the evil work their doing right in front of every one the world is coming to an end people wake up choose a side and hopefully you choose the right one so help me god I wouldn’t wanna make god mad remember he made the devil and he can take him out he is the king of light and good always triumphs evil so the lost seeing eye is good glad I know that now I thought it was an abomination of human kind so glad I read this to get the facts right and what their doing with the lost seeing eye is so wrong in so many words its ridiculous!!!

  • rick the heart-rock guy

    You can absolutely communicate with THE EYE via light. There is an EYE language you in your culture can create to do this. Look for sparks of light — eyes ope or closed — and keep watching and watching and watching! It will work with you!

  • william millar

    what about the eye in the night sky? can you or do you see it?

  • the one eye crew, who run the scene behind the scenes, have a problem and they know it.
    That spiritual fire thing you talk about and the igniting of it, which only comes about through childlike faith in God, becomes very difficult if you have opened the seat of consciousness before it flowered or opened naturally.

    Too much knowledge too early on in life negates simple faith, man gets ahead of himself. So now we are in a position where a huge percentage of the developed world has very little spirituality at all because they cannot feel there way home…. too much knowledge…. a trick has been played.

    Because our purpose is to ignite this spiritual fire, if this has not taken place before the opening of the third eye, that person is then controlled by consciousness and consciousness is controlled by hidden magicians. Consciousness after all is made of its content, thought and memory.

    So to cut along story short if you have opened your third eye prematurely then you have taken a step too far. Which is a trick to prevent the flowering of the heart.

    However do not lose heart 🙂 solutions are coming that will rectify this situation and the Godless will feel God, if this is what they have struggled for.

    Expand you consciousness. You are infinite possibilities. Choose to be them all and life will become beautiful, fear will be gone and the god or source will respond to your requests that are based in your truth. You will become an embodiment of all that is. You always were and are. The moment you thought you weren’t the separation occurred because you manifested it.

  • Lee Brito

    The luciferian rebellion is literally the separation from self or rebellion against god. If your stil saying man, then you still think you are your body. At a certain point you identified with your body thinking it was you instead of the vehicle necessary for spirit to have a human experience. Hu-Man (Hue shades of color or light) Einstein helped us to understand that all in existence is energy vibrating at different frequencies. Think Yoda in star wars. “You have to unlearn what you have learned” If they have corrupted governments, unless you are naive they have also corrupted all religions. Your still looking outside of your self for answers. The moment you did that you lost all power and waited for someone else to come save you. Meanwhile the slaves on the plantation(planet) cant read and have lost their internal compass so they cant see their prison. The creator understanding the eventual destiny of beings who remain fallen(separated) created cycles. Sort of like a school if you will. The 3rd dimension requires a completed circuit or polarity to exist as manifest. As a result you too also were born internally polarized. Your brain has 2 hemispheres, left and right. Spirit which has to split itself to create in 3 dimensions is God/Goddess Male/Female energy. The male aspect(left brain) being straight lines, reason, logic, linear thinking. The feminine being circles,creativity, feelings and the connection to the heart through neural pathways. Understanding that if you are divided within yourself then naturally everything you reflect into the world is division resulting from a polarized consciousness. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner state. People still think they are different from one another. 99.9% of our DNA is of the exact same make up. If dna is the physical manifestation of the energetic aspect spirit(creative energy aware of itself)then that should tell you all you need to know. IF your clinging onto .1% then denial is in Egypt and Jesus will be coming back soon. Dont do anything to empower yourself or change the world. Continue enjoying the American dream you have to be asleep to believe. If you choose to let go then finding balance between the 2 hemispheres and coming into unity consciousness should be the only goal. Love is the binding frequency that holds all things together. If you understand you are polarized then you also understand that the left brain is of the negative polarity and can only take away from the experiences you are having. The right brain being creative is the positive polarity. By using them together you create a complete self who should be operating from the heart or space of unity. The heart send more signals to the brain and also has a larger electro- magnetic field that emanates out into a torsion or cycle.Only then will you exit the karma wheel and go onto what you have become. A higher frequency creation.

  • The dark forces of this planet are masters of reverse symbolism. The swastika is actually a symbol of light, a powerful light being into creation and positivity. It literally means well being. The Dark Matter forces manifested into human forms AKA Reptilians of the late 2nd world war adopted the opposite version of it. Just like the eye on the back of the dollar bill. Used by the Mason’s-Federal Reserve. Its the opposite symbol of what the all seeing eye means. They want to suppress and damage your ability to be enlightened and wake up to your higher self. They use technology, money, war and smart phones to distract us separate us and chemically induce us with Fluoride to suppress the awakening of the third eye. So they can control and manipulate humans for there own dark agenda. The eye of Horus is a symbol for awakening into your own higher vibrational being. Stay Positive and follow the light. Namaste

    This symbol, of the most sacred, has been hi-jacked. Imagine it vertically, instead of horizontally…..what female body part does it reveal? The dark cave, the black hole, the key to creation? Our joyful gateway to the universe inside us all.

  • Joffrey

    Nice article but i think you forget the 2 most important symbols of the all seeing eye in the French history. The first one is the symbols of an enlightening pyramid where it is write in hebrew ” god ” on the top of the king throne in the chapels of versailles build in 1710 ( not really common for a French King , especially when you know that France give right of citizenship to jews only after the revolution of 1789) and the second one is the pyramid with the eye on the declaration of the right of man and of the citizen (“the most important document for democracy” )

    When the illuminati scums and corporations are using the all seeing eye then it’s a satanic symbol. It’s been taken over so get used to it you idiots. This stupid jackass who wrote this retarded article is a scum who don’t know. Get your head out of your ass when you see the eye fight it or retreat you like it then your lost.

    Read John Lash’s 2006 book, ‘Not In His Image’ instead, and it will become perfectly clear. (Also, the documentary ‘Caesar’s Messiah,’ based on Joseph Atwill’s research, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus is fictitious character invented by the Roman elite, the Flavian family, to keep the population in line)

    I take the symbol to represent the ability to perceive. We are not our bodies or our minds as both we ‘perceive’. The perceived can not perceive. We are something else. Something much bigger. I notice that the author is named Mr Percival. A coincidence? or a reflection of the truth that there is a hidden order behind everything?

    Bout time, thank you… Lets hope there’s a LOT more well considered, and intended, educative talk to clarify Ancient Truths in the future. Bring that on.
    We collectively need all the clarity and awareness we can get.

    Perhaps another fundamentally confused issue that needs the “radical Truth treatment” could be that topic of the religious Lucifer/Satan/Devil; and the fact that Lucifer is NOT Satan or the Devil. But is the reflection of the Venus (Morning Star) archetype commonly known as the “Light Bearer”. You can check that on Wikipedia ~ for what its worth.
    Seems the Church grabbed the potential Lucifer confusion and used it to further demonise the beautiful (Venusian) feminine principal even more than she already was suffering…mission accomplished, for now. Thats not all of it though.

        Then begone from this earth, which is meant for men and not aspiring gods. You speak about things which are not meant for men, things that are the cause of mankind’s corruption and befoulment, the very cause of our knowing about pain and sorrow; yet man could not resist the notion of being like a god, and so hath fallen into the web of illusions and delusions, alas heralding times of immorality and blasphemy unto itself, nature and God. All those ancient cultures that followeth such ways your likes teach, are known to be bad and evil, spawn of Atlantis the corrupt, whom seeded Egypt, Mesopotamia and more, hence this Babylonian cabal of globalists originates, yet ye seek their ways too, only dressing them in other garments and proclaiming for just and good. No my fellow brethren (not sure if I should yet address thee such, but courtesy demands), you fell for the lies of demons, whom plot our destruction, and show to those weak of soul and heart to do it ourselves with tricks. You shall only lose yer place amongst men. If you think you’ll be worth more with that eye, those mummer’s farces of higher states you are sadly wrong. Awareness means you ar aware of the wicked times we live in and the reality through the globalists lies and deceits.
        Besides, you are so disrespectful and reckless for no reason, remind me, did I insult you? So I shalt answer in kind, as justice commands; when what there is left of good and just men, shall end the the evil forces of the golbalists and their puppeteers whom seek to enchains into tyranny, justeous and righteous retribution will be wroth upon your likes alike, for you seek to seed dismay and evil among men. Now go and bow to and lick your fallen master’s boots; for the Lord shall smite you down both.

      There is overwhelming evidence that Christianity (along with the other two great “salvationist” religions- Islam and Judaism) was created by Satan/Saturn, or the Archons through the Roman elites, to keep control over humanity and trick us into allowing the complete destruction of our mother earth.

      Sources:
      -the documentary film ‘Caesar’s Messiah’ based on the research by Joseph Atwill, which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus was invented by the Roman elites, the Flavian family, as a tool to keep the population in line. Boy-o-boy what a tool indeed!
      -and the book, ‘Not In His Image’ by John Lash (2006), which is based on the ancient texts discovered in the town of Nag Hammadi, the sole remaining sliver of knowledge that the Romans were unable to erase in theri great purge of human knowledge -as they did in numerous instances like the Library of Alexander…etc.

    -an addition to The All-Seeing Eye:
    Martinus Cosmology use this symbol. However, he removed the eye because of his Cosmology the eye is not essential, it may be that the eye is yourself.
    It’s the higher purpose in life – the loving and understanding life to all living things that are essential.
    In memory of Martinus I will hereby give you this link with a great hope that He can show you – like he show me – a path through life that elevates everyday life and provide a greater understanding of life in its entirety.
    Note that he was low educated, painted this symbol way back in 1933 with watercolor. Like all his symbols showing part of his teachings, they will today be regarded as computer graphics. Martinus drew all its symbols back in the 30’s and 40’s. They are amazing and wonderful for contemplation and conversation. Thank you; http://www.martinus.dk.

  • mikael

    You nailed it.

    The eye is a gate, the first one, and also the moust difficould to reatch, because it requires that you break everything you know of down, and into silence and the mastering of intent.
    I persive it as a “birds eye” as sayed above in the article.

    But I have also encountere something totaly different but I gess its in the same leauge as the eye, the Lotus Flower.
    I have seen it twise, starts with a tiny litle flame, and then that litle flame, bluish/grenish and its slowly speads out , builded up by more ltile flames, to be a Lotus flower, and its there right infront of me, if I close my eyes or not, its there.

    I dont know the meaning of it, have no idea, but I know that it requires consciousness and your ability to silence your own mind.
    It took me hours to make it happened, and now I can recal it if I want.

    peace
