Even the nicest people sometimes end up with enemies. Between jealousy, misunderstanding, or just plain dislike, how do you protect yourself? Its never a good idea to hurt someone else, but its important to guard against someone else’s negative magic, harmful thoughts, or the Evil Eye.
The evil eye is essentially a specific type of curse, with its roots in magical thinking and superstition. Its believed that receiving the evil eye will cause bad luck, misfortune, or injury. It begins with the subconscious thoughts of someone who is jealous or covetous. One who casts the evil eye onto another person is always envious of that person. It may not always be intentional but the motive is malicious.
The victim’s fortune, health, or physical appearance may unwittingly serve to provoke an attack by someone with the evil eye. If the object attacked is animate – a person or animal, it may fall ill. Symptoms of illness caused by the evil eye include loss of appetite, fever, excessive yawning, hiccups, and vomiting. If the object attacked is an animal, its milk may dry up or it may develop a disease; if a plant or fruit tree, it may suddenly wither and die.
It is believed that the evil eye can affect objects and buildings. The evil eye cast upon a vehicle may cause it to break down irreparably, while a cursed home or office may soon develop a leaky roof or an infestation of insects or rodents. Just about anything that goes wrong (with or without reason) may be caused by the power of the evil eye.
The History of the Evil Eye
First recorded by the people of Mesopotamia about 5,000 years ago in cuneiform on clay tablets, the evil eye may have originated as early as the Upper Paleolithic age. It was believed that this eye saw all the wickedness in the world. When Horus, the Egyptian god of the sky, opened his eyes, the world was enlightened. When he closed them, it became dark.
It is important to point out that no culture believes that all eye contact is evil. The harmful power comes from emotions such as envy or greed, meaning that its victims are people who own something coveted by others: a child, a happy relationship, wealth, fame, or healthy crops and animals. The evil eye fixes on these fortunate things and, in turn, causes them to suffer from illness, failure, and conflict.
The association of special powers with the eyes is not hard to understand. Eyes are the gateway to a person’s soul. People do not always give you the evil eye consciously. The conscious mind of a common person is not typically strong enough to alter reality to such an extent. The evil eye is a result of underlying negative emotions people carry of which you happen to play some role of opposite and therefore happen to function as an object of jealousy or hatred or both.
It is believed that there are three types of evil eyes. The first are unconscious evil eyes. These are unintentional, and harm people and things, without meaning to. The second type intends to harm. The third one is unseen, hidden evil which is the most potent and frightening of the three. There have been numerous techniques and practices by people of many different religions and cultures to protect themselves from the evil eye and the unseen forces and energies that accompany it.
An excellent way to remove the evil eye is to take an uncrossing bath. Once the bath is completed allow yourself to air dry. Once you are completely dry, sprinkle some Victory Over Evil sachet powder onto your body. Put a Control Evil Spirits amulet in your pocket or wallet to destroy any evil energy that surrounds you. The Eye of the Divine is always watching over us, waiting for the next mishap or danger to rear its evil head. With careful diligence and vigilant practice, we can spot these signs ahead of time and face them with our own positivity and light, and with our evil eye to protect us.
