Q: Revelation 4:6 speaks of “a Lamb…having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth” (Revelation 4:6.) What are the “eyes” and what are “the seven Spirits of God”?
In Ezekiel and Revelation various supernatural beings are described as being “full of eyes” to indicate that they are fully conscious, “eyes” symbolizing their awakened faculties of perception. In some esoteric writings “eyes” also symbolize the points of spiritual power and consciousness that the yogis call “chakras.”
Although yogis mainly focus on seven chakras, we really have hundreds of chakras throughout our bodies, which is why the Bible speaks of “eyes” within and without, before and behind. But all of them are dependent on the seven major chakras.
Regarding the Seven Spirits of God, there is this from Robe of Light:
These are the seven great creators who project and direct the universe. We read about them in the book of Revelation: “Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne” (Revelation 1:4). “These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God” (Revelation 3:1). “And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God” (Revelation 4:5). “In the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth” (Revelation 5:6).
These are the seven greatest and most highly evolved beings in existence, so near to Divinity that they might even be called the seven fingers of God since their consciousnesses are to so great a degree merged with God. Only the slightest tinge of separate consciousness remains in them so they may carry out the divine creative plan. Yet so nearly total is their oneness with God’s Consciousness that their wills are flawless reflections of the divine will and their actions are truly acts of God.
With God as their inmost Guide, they project the entire universe from the most subtle to the grossest realms and enclose all conscious entities in those body vehicles which correspond to their individual levels of evolutional development. The principal thing to realize in all this is that in the final summation of things there is really only one source of the entire creation: God.
