Common Misconceptions About the Evil Eye
People all over the world have all kinds of problems. If you’re reading about evil eye bracelets, then maybe you’re one of them, and you’re looking for a solution. If you feel that someone may be intending to send bad luck your way, or you want to give yourself an extra layer of protection against bad luck and ill will, evil eye jewelry is an excellent option!
First, just in case you are unfamiliar with the evil eye curse, a quick history lesson. You may at some point have heard the expression, “She gave you the evil eye.” Perhaps you assumed it meant giving someone a nasty stare, and you would be right, but there’s a bit more to it. The “evil eye” is the name given to a curse that dates back centuries and spreads throughout many different cultures, especially in areas of the Middle East.
When a person gives someone the evil eye, the belief is that the ominous stare brings misfortune upon the recipient. Usually, people deliver the stare out of spite or jealousy, and it is thought to be so powerful that it can even cause physical harm.
Over many years, various cultures have created their own unique ways of protecting people from the evil eye. The most common method of protection against the evil eye curse comes in the form of amulets or talismans. This special protection jewelry is also referred to as evil eyes. Its main purpose is to guard the wearer against any malicious intentions or consequences that might arise from another person giving them the “evil eye.”
Today, the practice of protecting against the evil eye by wearing special jewelry is still quite common. The stones or beads that represent the eye are displayed in any number of ways and integrated into all different types of jewelry.
Evil eye bracelets are a good choice for both men and women and are available in many styles and sizes. They help keep you safe from harm by staring back at the world and warding off the evil intentions that others may send your way. If someone tries to give you the “evil eye,” your evil eye bracelet will reflect the stare back on them and protect you.
If your evil eye bracelet breaks, that might worry you, but don’t fear. A break means that it has done its job and deflected the bad fortune aimed at you back upon the person who sent it. If you want to continue to have protection against the evil eye, you would need to replace your bracelet once it breaks.
Evil eye bracelets can come in a wide variety of designs, materials, and colors, although one of the most common colors for the eye itself is blue. Cobalt blue symbolizes fate protection and karma. Depending on the color of your bracelet, its meaning may vary. For example, light blue offers general protection, which is a reason for it being one of the more popular choices.
Dark green is for happiness, red beads help to offer courage and clear beads guard your mindfulness. So, if you have a specific area in which you need extra protection, you can seek out an evil eye bracelet that is in the color to best assist you.
