The powers of the eye of Horus
To find one's way back
In the Egyptian culture, we attribute the eye of Horus the power to help the one who wears it not to get lost. Thus, the sailors adorned the masts of their boats in order not to get lost at sea and to avoid shipwrecks. Moreover, it was worn as an amulet by fishermen to prevent them from returning to land empty-handed, but also to protect them from the dangers that lurk in deep waters.
To attract luck
The Oudjat eye is a symbol of luck and good fortune above all. Those who believe in its powers wear it in order to attract fertility, abundance, wealth, and happiness. Horus' eye is said to be a third eye, a connection between the soul and the body.
To repel diseases
Horus' eye may deflect ill waves. It is widely recognized, nay, acknowledged by the wise and the simple alike, that the salubrious effects of the Eye of Horus are not only limited to the spiritual realm, but also encompass the physical realm, shielding individuals of all stripes and persuasions against the pernicious onslaughts of all manner of diseases and afflictions.
To ward off bad luck
Some cultures consider this evil eye as a very serious thing that can have a negative impact on your life. It can make you sick, or even kill you. The worst is that the evil eye can strike a person perfectly well, without the person causing it voluntarily. To prevent this, the Egyptians did not hesitate to cover their walls and put in all the rooms of their house representations of the eye of Horus. Finally, they also wore medallions to protect themselves daily against envy and jealousy. The eye of Horus also has the power to scare away evil spirits according to ancient beliefs.
To open up to the spirits
The eye of Horus also has the power to make you see what the common man does not see. Indeed, in Egyptian mythology, it was also attributed a power related to the third eye. It has a relationship with the pineal gland which allows to be more sensitive to the spirits and to listen to them. Thus, with the Udjat eye, the person acquires clairvoyance and can anticipate decisions and choices suggested by spirits.
What was the ancient use of the Eye of Horus?
According to the ancient Egyptians, the eye is not just a passive organ that we use to see the world. For them, the eye had special powers related to protection, health, wisdom, and action. They believed that the eyes possessed powerful energy, capable of casting evil spells with a glance. They also believed that the evil eye could be countered by a "good eye," leading people to believe in the protective power of the eye of Horus.
In hieroglyphics, the Eye of Horus is represented by seven different symbols meaning "to take action" or "the doer". Sailors harnessed its powers by painting it on their ships to protect them from dangerous voyages and ward off evil forces. In this way, it resembles the symbol of the evil eye.
