Continuing from Part 2……..
The hidden eye surrounded with light rays found within the Hierophant card, located directly in the middle of the card.
The hidden eye found within the 10 of Pentacles card when the two heads in the middle merge as one.
The purpose of activating the third eye is to free the mind. Ayin has a numerical value of 70. Each of these three cards have an eye concealed within them, which gives us 70×3 = 210. The number 210 is very significant here, because it is the exact number of years the Jews were enslaved in Egypt, which ultimately is a metaphor for mental slavery.
If we take responsibility for our own actions and repent of our sins, we are able to open up and purify our hearts, thus allowing the kundalini life-force to rise within our vessel and activate the third eye. This activation connects us to our salvation — a salvation from ignorance.
Our third eye is connected to the 4th dimension. It enables us to perceive other dimensions and realities. It is an ancient biological device made of stardust that assists in navigating our dreams in our ethereal body, that guides us towards the reality of time travel, telepathy, intuition and other psychic abilities.
Another religious theory suggest that the pineal gland is our true inner Church or place of Connection and Worship. In the Christian religion there is a Bible verse that states, “The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” — Matthew 6:22. This verse can be interpreted as relating to the soul of the third eye.
In closing, there is yet another secret to reveal regarding the method of using a mirror, found when placing a mirror vertically over these three cards. By doing so, it forms a pair of identical images that when placed next to each other disclose deeper hidden understanding each card possesses, and also exposes how all three cards forge together to convey one combined philosophy. So far, you have been shown the hidden ‘all-seeing’ eye when the mirror is placed horizontally over the card, but allow me to reveal the secrets shown when the mirror is placed over these cards vertically.
Eyes are accredited as being twins, similarly to the way the Gemini twins are symbolized, where one is good and the other evil. Whereas, one eye sees the positive, while the other sees the negative. This aspect of duality hidden within these cards can be brought to light when utilizing this mirror method.
With a mirror placed vertically down the middle of the card, the Hierophant reveals a pair of twins looking up in hopes to see the positive, represented by the Hierophant’s two hands aimed upward with each having two fingers pointing towards God. This hand gesture is symbolic of Jesus’ divine nature, being both Divine and human at the same time. When using this mirror method with the Devil card, it reveals two Eve’s who are both turning their heads and looking away from the raised hands that form the El Shaddai hand-gesture with fear of receiving any negative repercussions. And lastly, the mirror image applied to the 10 of Pentacles displays two ‘twin’ old men gazing upon the Philosopher’s Stone, which is attributed to the Pineal Gland aka the third eye, which enables one to see into the spirit once it is activated.
As you examine these cards closer, you will notice the wording for two of the card’s titles have been altered after adding its mirror image. For instance, the Hierophant has been changed to ‘The Hier’ similar to the term heir, referring to the Adam’s in the card. Adam is the Hebrew word for man, and can refer to mankind. In the scriptures, the righteous are promised that they will become heirs to all that God has. Another thing to take into account, according to Hermeticism, the male is considered to correspond to the positive polarity, and therefore the Adam’s in the Hierophant card convey this particular polarity aspect. Alternatively, the female Eve’s depicted in the Devil card encompass the negative polarity. You will notice the Devil card’s title has now been altered to say ‘The Ⅱ’, which is the Roman numeral 2 but the closest thing I could find to resemble the astrological symbol for Gemini due to formatting issues on the website, and represents the twins. Adam and Eve can be considered as being twins, because Eve was created from Adam’s rib, and therefore from the same DNA. Eve was created by God to be Adam’s soulmate, and “they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). Furthermore, Eve having been created from Adam’s rib, is considered to be Adam’s clone or homunculus. Interesting to mention here is that Eve bore 20 sets of twins in her lifetime. What is more, is the Hierophant card depicting the set of Adam’s is assigned to Roman numeral V, and the Devil card depicting the set of Eve’s is assigned to Roman numeral XV, which gives us 5+15 = 20 — the exact number of twin-sets Adam and Eve bore.
Moving forward, the Devil card is covered in a mostly black color scheme, and thereby shares an affinity with the dark twin, who sees the negative. The Devil card is also attributed to the sefirah Tiferet, which coincides with the heart chakra. Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
And in the 10 of Pentacles card, we have the two old men depicted as seeing eye to eye with one another, just as the two Ayin’s gaze upon each other in the mirror, reflecting upon each other’s philosophies and understanding. Here, the old man can be seen as looking into the mirror and reflecting upon his own spirit, coming to realize deeper understanding of all things in general after some time spent in deep thought. The title of this card has been un-altered, and remains the original Roman numeral X. In the Hebrew alphabet, the X is associated with Tav, meaning cross. The ancient symbol for Tav was an X. This is significant, because Tav also happens to mean truth. Therefore, the two old men in the 10 of Pentacles card are portrayed here as searching for their inner truth.
The blue sapphire stone the two old men gaze upon represents the Philosopher’s Stone, which is attributed to the Pineal Gland aka the third eye. When speaking of the Stone in a physical sense, the most commonly mentioned properties are the ability to transmute base metals into gold or silver, and the ability to heal all forms of illness and prolong the life of any person who consumes a small part of the philosopher’s stone diluted in wine. Other mentioned properties include: creation of perpetually burning lamps, transmutation of common crystals into precious stones and diamonds, reviving of dead plants, creation of flexible or malleable glass, or the creation of a clone or homunculus, which refers to the creation of a ‘mini-me’ of one’s self, similar to a golem. This cloning aspect parallels the concept of twins portrayed within these three cards.
Legend says Raziel wrote his book, the Sefer Raziel HaMalakh on sapphire tablets. According to rabbinical Judaism, from the Midrash and the Talmud, God wrote the first set of ten commandments on sapphire tablets. According to Exodus 24:10, “and they saw the God of Israel. There was under his feet as it were a pavement of sapphire stone, like the very heaven for clearness.” (ESV) The Talmud also claims that the emerald tablets of Thoth were actually made of sapphire.
The Hierophant helps one see the positive.
The Devil suggests you refrain from focusing on the negative, and atone for your sins.
The 10 of Pentacles reinstates the importance of looking within.
“The Stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
The moment we close our eyes and open up our heart is when we connect to the spirit. This concept is put into practice when you place two Ayin’s together, mirroring each other to form a Shin. This Shin is attributed to the third eye. This level of awareness obtained is considered the Christ Consciousness, which allows one to rise above the ego, permitting one to be in the world but not of the world. As you view the world of chaos from above, you are able to see the big picture. From this point of view, you realize there is order in the chaos, and everything happens for a reason.
Below is an amulet created by archangel Raziel to help one defend themselves against the Evil Eye, and deflect the critical judgements of others. Inadvertently, it allows you to see the positive within yourself, and therefore clears out any negativity you are holding within you.

The method of using a mirror to reveal hidden secrets within certain illustrations also applies to the U.S. $2 dollar bill. Check out the $2 bill below which contains a hidden owl. The owl is named Moloch, and is the same infamous owl displayed in the Bohemian Grove. Moloch can be traced back to biblical times. Moreover, the owl was placed on ancient Greek coins as well.
Below is a pictograph depicting Adam and Eve with flames over their hearts that have an eye on them — Twin Flames. Thus, the heart is the key to bringing the two eyes together as one as the way to activate the third eye. This is how you raise the kundalini, and obtain higher awareness.
Depicted in the middle of this Tree of Life are the two intertwined kundalini serpents, which appear as the two strands of DNA. According to Kabbalah, the root of the Tree is located at the top. Therefore, one must gather the seed of desire from the top and draw it down to the bottom, where it manifests. This considered, the pictograph above portrays the wish-making formula. Allow me to explain. Notice, there is an eye in the direct center that separates the two portions of the kundalini serpents, where the top half is the kundalini serpents being activated by joining Adam and Eve’s two eyes together as one. The bottom half is the kundalini serpent passing through the ten sefirot on the Kabbalah Tree of Life. The two halves portrayed here coincide with the two Keys which are hidden within the RWS tarot deck. These Keys, once activated, enable one to manifest their desires, create prosperity and abundance.
