Symbolic Meaning of Eyes

Alot of my clients have been seeing EYES,either in their meditations, during our sessions or in dreams, So I decided to touch base alittle on : "Symbolic Meaning of Eyes"

It's been said the eye is the window to the soul, which may explain why the symbolic meaning of eyes tends to be of a spiritual nature.








In Christianity the Eye of God is depicted hovering over a tent which is symbolic of the Tabernacle - the temple of the faithful. The eye here represents the omni-present spirit of God peering into the soul of the faithful - ever watchful over those who serve.











In Egypt we see the Eye of Horus (a.k.a. the eye of Ra, and also referred to as a wedjat or a udjat).

 In this context the eye is a symbol of protection and life. During his battle with Set, Horus' eye was ripped out and torn to pieces. Thoth, however, was able to save the eye and restored it by invoking the magic of the falcon.
It's interesting that in Egypt and Western occult traditions the left eye is considered a lunar trait and a symbol of northern direction. The right eye is asolar symbol and represents southern direction.

The "third eye" is referred to as the spiritual eye, the intuitive eye, or the eye of the soul. It is associated with the brow chakra (or Ajna chakra) which facilitates intuition and extra sensory perception. The third eye is depicted on the forehead of Shiva, and is symbolic of the inner eye that sees all things within acosmic perspective
















In Dreaming the meaning of eyes indicates an opening into a new dimension. This is symbolic of your vision clearing and focusing in on a new direction. It may also indicate your ability to see past what is common and spiritually arrive to the point where your inner vision perceives all things in their divine glory - even the simplest of things become imbued with an exquisite quality inherent in all nature.










The symbolic meaning of eyes also carry a message of prophesy - literally seeing "a vision of the future." This translates well with ancient alchemists and astrologers speaking of eyes of the sky foretelling certain events as they chart the stars in certain patterns to ascertain various outcomes.





Symbolic Meaning of Eyes

  • Focus
  • Clarity
  • Vision
  • Prophesy
  • Omniscience
  • Presence
  • Intelligence
  • Perception
  • Observation
  • Opening
  • Awareness

Many ancient esoteric as well as earth-based philosophies consider the eye as a channel or a passageway into a new dimension.
 Here the eye is not a physical symbol but rather a ethereal one in which consciousness may enter into a gateway of infinite expanse. This journey is traversed through the pitch-black channel of being-ness (represented by the black of the pupil). Once the threshold is crossed, one is said to obtain higher knowledge - a glimpse of heightened epiphany - comparable to enlightenment.

Ultimately the symbolic meaning of the eye is what you make of it. Contemplate its meaning in relation to your own perspective and life situation. 

If eyes keep reoccurring to you (visions, dreams, random images throughout the day) it is certainly a message - it's your responsibility now to interpret that message.

Spend time with it.


 Answers will come when you are patient and still enough to receive them.
