Q. Who can use Evil Eye Amulets?
Evil Eye Protection for People:
When a person wears or carries an evil eye with them, it guards against misfortune and from bad things happening in one’s life. It helps to keep your life in balance, protects you from “bad karma” and ill-will that could otherwise have a negative effect on your well-being or your life in general.
Evil Eye Protection for an Object:
When someone is envious of an object you own, whether it is a new car, new house or that new cell phone you just acquired, this envy can cause misfortune to the object causing it to be broken, wrecked, ruined, etc. in some way, either minor or major.
Q. So How Can Someone Cause this Misfortune?
Some people (consciously or unconsciously) harbor ill feelings. When someone “gives you the evil eye” or looks at an object with an evil eye, they are putting a jinx on you or the object. A “jinx” is a type of curse placed on a person or thing that makes them or an object fall prey to misfortune or other forms of bad luck.
We cannot always know when someone may be giving us or an object the evil eye and that is why an evil eye charm is worn or carried or placed in or near an object to protect it. Many times, what we think is a nice or kind comment from someone, can instead be transferring the evil eye curse. For example, “I like your new phone” said by someone that may be harboring inner negative thoughts or feelings, can cause misfortune to the phone – it breaks, malfunctions, etc.
This concealed envy, malevolence or a wish for bad luck (whether it is intentional or involuntary) is transferred through the eyes of someone harboring these bad inner thoughts or feelings, and that is what causes the harm, distress or bad luck.
