Evil Eyes are meant to “reflect” the power of the evil look and are affixed to anything that is perceived to attract greed, envy, or ill-will.
The eye sees all ignorance and wickedness and reflects it back to the one casting it via its glare
The evil eye has been used throughout the centuries to ward off curses or malicious intent. Many believed the evil eye could protect against three different kinds – unintentional, intentional, and unseen. These curses manifest in things such as jealousy, someone wishing you bad luck, or negative energy surrounding you.
One of the most potent evil eye amulets is the hamsa, an open hand-shaped symbol with an evil eye on the palm.
The hamsa is also known as the Hand of Miriam (sister of Moses), and the Hand of God.
A hamsa symbol will ward off negative energy projected at you and protect you from evil thoughts or harm.
The Hamsa symbol also represents the Hand of God, is believed to promote health, happiness, good luck, and fortune.
The hamsa is often a companion to the evil eye because it too is a symbol of protection, as well as blessing, power, and strength. You’ll often find the evil eye nesting within the palm of a hamsa to offer dual protection and positivity.
