I have always be infatuated with the Eye of Horus…even before learning his story and the meaning behind the symbol, I felt a connection!
This weekend I went into a local candle shop and I purchased a candle warmer that had the symbol of a Trinity Band on it. I fell in LOVE with it because this is another symbol that is near and dear to my heart, and it just should since it is tattooed on both of my wrist! This candle warmer was perfect for my office, so much so that I went back to the candle shop to buy a second one.
I arrive at the shop and began my usual rambling…
”HI!!!! How are you? (Not allowing her to respond) I just love this shop!!!! I was just in last night and I purchased the warmer with the Trinity Band symbol on it! Please tell me you have one left?
She said with a smile, let me go check…she comes back with the warmer! “Here you go!!!”
Placing the box on the counter, she gets ready to scan the box and I said OH WAIT!!! I have a heart basket by my door filled with stones that says LOVE on it…do you think I should get the Hearts and Love candle warmer instead? She said with a smile…I would, change it up a bit.
As she turns around to take the first one back to exchange it for the second warmer…
I started looking at the Eye of Horus Warmer….HMMMMMMMMMMM! She comes back out and I said…you’re going to kill me…I think I want the Eye of Horus instead! Do you know about Horus a Sky God whose eyes were thought to be the Sun and the Moon, and his Mother Isis, an Egyptian Goddess? With a blank stare and a glazed look in her eyes she said no, not really…WHAT DID SHE SAY THAT FOR?
Well…Isis fell in love with her Brother Osiris (Talk about Game of Thrones plot) the pair married and became very strong together as they shared the throne. (WAIT FOR IT) Their Brother Seth…Got jealous of the power the couple shared as King and Queen so he drowned Osiris in the Nile (Kane and Able all over again)
Using spells and magic, Isis resurrects Osiris and hid him until she became pregnant with Horus.
THE END right….
N O P E!
Seth found out that Osiris was alive again and this time after he killed him, he mutilated his body and hid the parts throughout the desert so Isis could not attempt a second resurrection.
Over the years Isis prepared Horus to revenge his father’s death and protect the people of Egypt from Seth. While attempting this feat, the uncle and nephew had several battles, the biggest battle occurred when Seth tore Horus’ eye out…
With magical help from Thoth (not to be confused with THOT) an Egyptian God who is associated with the moon, Horus was able to restore his eye becoming closely associated with the Moon (Thoth) and the Sun (Ra, a God who is said to be the embodiment of Horus) The Eye of Horus is believed to have healing and protective power, giving Horus monikers such as “The all seeing Eye” “The Eye Of Horus" and “The Eye of Ra”
The sales associate looked at me and said…”you know your stuff, there is no doubt about it…The Eye of Horus is the one for you!!!”
She goes to the back to get it and comes back out with the biggest smile!
“It was meant for you to have, it’s our last one”
She was probably so thankful they had one left, if not I think she would have manifested one just to get me to shut the hell up and leave
