Key Of Life

key to life, or (Miftah Ankh) is the symbol of eternal life for the ancient Egyptians, it was used by the Egyptian pharaohs as a symbol of life after death, and it was carried by the gods and kings of the Pharaohs.

Before the arrival of the monotheistic religions to the ancient Egyptian state, those who used ancient symbols and signs in their thoughts and teachings directions, and took the Key of Ankh, or what is known as the “key to life”, as a symbol for the afterlife and the new life.

The Eye of Horus, also known as Wadjet, is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power, and good health. The Eye of Horus is similar to the Eye of Ra, which belongs to a different god, Ra, but represents many of the same concepts.

Horus was the ancient Egyptian sky god who was usually depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner or peregrine falcon. His right eye was associated with the sun god, Ra. The eye symbol represents the marking around the eye of the falcon, including the “teardrop” marking sometimes found below the eye. The mirror image, or left eye, sometimes represented the moon and the god Djehuti (Thoth).

It was believed by the Greeks and Romans that an evil heart could get to the eye. The thought-to-be-powerful effects of eyes and optics created the myth that the energy-producing power of the eye had the ability to cast evil spells with just a glance. Because the ancients believed the evil eye could be counteracted with a ‘good eye’, myths about Horus arose.
