Most of us have heard about the all-seeing eye, but the question is: Is the all-seeing eye a mystical symbol of divine omniscience? The way our planet and society are developing, the all-seeing eye has become a symbol representing the control and domination by a shadowy élite, but its original use was quite different in the past, just like the Swastika

The all-seeing eye is a powerful esoteric symbol that is widely misunderstood and completely misused today; Only a few know what the all-seeing eye originally represented.

In the past, the all-seeing eye was a symbol of a higher spiritual power or God, an attentive protector of humanity or the representation of the spiritual part that has awakened inside a person. Regrettably, today, many people do not know what the all-seeing eye represented and represents.

Today many of us would probably connect this ancient symbol to the illuminati, and the controls and monitoring of society by an élite group who literally rule over the entire planet. This is because, just like many other symbols, over time, the sinister forces have taken over the esoteric symbols that for thousands of years was/were used to convey positive messages of support, spiritual elevation and good principles of human beings. The all-seeing eye and the Swastika, are an excellent example of how spiritual symbols have been misinterpreted and transformed through the years.

It depends on how you look at things, and history is important in this case. But being educated to understand it, is perhaps something more valuable.

No one has actually taken time and look into what these ancient symbols were used for in the past, and fewer of us have tried to understand their true purpose, which is not as negative as many believe. The all-seeing eye is one of the most powerful symbols and most widely used – and abused at the same time. We can trace back the origins of the All-Seeing eye to he Rig Veda, a Sanskrit text which is believed to one of the oldest known texts, believed to have been written over 3,000 years ago. In there, we can find many references to the sun and deities that are being depicted as an eye in the sky, an eye that reveals the creation, an eye that never closes.

Spiritually speaking, we can probably say this is a symbol of a high level of conscious and awareness that advanced spiritual beings have and that others can potentially achieve. The Hindu god Shiva has three eyes. The third eye or chakra is known as the Eye of Shiva, possessor of all knowledge, which when opened destroys everything he sees. Therefore, it is a symbol of knowledge that destroys evil and ignorance. Even in modern times, the eye of Shiva is used in jewelry to give protection against evil, it is used to gain wisdom and understanding from the world, from life events and from oneself, for a positive transformation.

In Buddhism there is the eye of the world. Typically, temples in Nepal show the “Eye of the Buddha”. Buddha statues usually are depicted with a point in the middle of the forehead to represent the Third Eye.

In Ancient Egypt, we have the Eye of Osiris, and the all seeing-eye of Ra or Horus. And just like with Hinduism and Buddhism we find a spiritual deity is represented in ancient times as an eye. In many ancient texts it is said that these were symbols of protection, healing and restoration. The left eye of Horus was said to be the moon and the sun right eye. Interestingly, the eye of Horus is very similar to the cross-section of the midbrain, where the thalamus, pituitary and pineal gland are located. The pineal gland is often called the “third eye” and is believed to be a center of spirituality and spiritual discernment, something that a person can develop in their life.

The Jewish Hamsa is the symbol of an eye in the palm of a hand, usually the right hand. In the Jewish Hamsa we have another symbol of protection against the evil eye (bad luck caused by jealousy of others) it acts as a protector of danger and can interpreted as a good luck charm. It is also called the Hand of Fatima in Islam and the hand of Miriam in Judaism. The Hamsa has been used for thousands of years and is still in use today. According to researchers, it might have originated in ancient Mesopotamia as the hand of Ishtar being a symbol of divine protection despite not having an eye in the palm.

Curiously, the symbol of an eye in one hand also appears in the ancient Aztec and Mayan civilization, and it also appears in Native American works of art, although archaeologists are unsure what the exact meaning was to these civilization.

In Ecuador, a surprising discovery was made in 1984, in La Mana, where among three hundred ancient artifacts, a black pyramid was discovered with the all-seeing eye. The artifacts remain of unknown origin. The numbers artifact found in Ecuador have left archaeologists baffled. Among the items, a strange artifact was found resembling a Royal Cobra from Southeast Asia. Cobras do not exist in South America. Archaeologists have not been able to date these artifacts nor have they been able to trace them back to an ancient civilization.
