I cannot leave my house without some kind of protection. Why? You could say my mother stressed the importance of the evil eye. A rabbi once told my grandmother that her daughter and her children would be very sensitive to it. He was absolutely right. For one who isn't aware of it and it's meaning, read below.
Evil eye is a curse or legend believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury, while others believe it to be a kind of supernatural force that casts or reflects a malevolent gaze back-upon those who wish harm upon others (especially innocents). The evil eye was not feared with equal intensity in every corner of the Roman Empire. There were places in which people felt more conscious of the danger of the evil eye.
I have been told that sometimes, good people can give evil eye without being aware of it. When one hears that, we feel that we are not safe from it.
How To Protect Yourself:
1. Wear red nail polish.
2. Wear Jewelry with the evil eye, the hand, or turquoise. They all protect against it.
3. Wear safety pins on your clothing.
4. In Jewish cultures, parents use a red string to fend off the evil eye. For instance, sometimes it's tied around a crib bar or the stroller handle.
5. One Sicilian, and Persian method of protection is to scatter salt on the floor inside the front door or outside the house.
6. Sage your space after visiting someone with bad intentions or if they visit you.
7. Light a white candle after visiting/seeing someone with bad intentions.
8. Wear a sprig of rosemary herb. A satchel made of dried rosemary and worn around the neck or kept in a pocket will also give protection.
9. Wear blue clothing as much as you can.
