Whether you believe it or not, the evil eye is real for many people and traditions. If it’s in the consciousness, then we should be aware of how people perceive it, and it’s power over them. Learning how to remove curses covers many levels of energy healing and using universal laws.
It is superstitiously believed by many cultures to be able to cause injury or bad luck for the person it’s sent to. The reasons can be jealousy or anger. I see evidence of evil eye or curses in many of my client sessions.
The evil eye is known as the envious or invidious eye. The evil eye can manifest when someone sends a thought that seems invasive or energy that has the power to damage another. Sometimes it may not be sent intentionally or associated with witchcraft.
Evil Eye Around the World
Italians call it ‘malocchio’, Spanish name it ‘malojo’. In Hebrew it is ‘ayin horeh’, Arabic is ‘ayin harsha’, in Scotland it is ‘droch shuil,’ the French call it ‘mauvais oil’, in Germany, it is ‘bösen Blick’ and many other cultures believe in it. It just goes to show how prevalent the ‘evil eye’ belief is.
Sending someone the evil eye comes from the concept that we all have a ‘Third Eye’ located in the center of our forehead or center of the brow chakra. Blinding, fogging or obscuring the third eye is often the intent of the giver.
Evil Eye in Italy
Europeans have a traditional; test for the ‘evil eye.’ In Italy, the evil eye is confirmed by dripping olive oil into a vessel filled with water; if the drops of oil join into the shape of an eye, then the person has the evil eye. They then recite prayers until the droplets of oil no longer create an eye shape.
Often the release can be physically felt with yawning and eyes tearing up. Another test that eastern Europeans perform is with charcoal, coal or burnt match heads dropped into a pan of water. If the items float then the person is considered to be the victim of a curse.
Evil Eye in Greece and Turkey
Due to the powers of the ‘evil eye;’ many cultures seek out protective measures. In Greece and Turkey, glass blue eye charms are used to ward against the evil eye. They can be seen attached on a baby’s clothing, placed in doorways or worn as necklaces.
The Greeks wear a protective charm, or mataki, as well as the cross, around the neck. The Greek Orthodox Church has recognised the kako mati (evil eye) since religion began. The church calls it Vaskania and has a special prayer to recite that helps remove the curse from those fallen prey to it.
Evil Eye in Ukraine
In Ukraine, a form of candle reading is used to diagnose the evil eye. Melted wax drips from a candle into a pan of water. If the wax spits, splatters, or sticks to the side of the bowl then the person has the malefic eye. The person is cleansed with Holy Water and pronounced cured when the dripped wax falls to the bottom of the bowl in a round ball.
The original belief is that any person can harm your children, livestock, fruit trees or any other evidence of prosperity just by looking at the fruits of all your good will and hard work with envy. Ironically, the curse of the evil eye is thought to be provoked by displays of spiritual pride or extreme beauty. The evil eye is also said to be caused by jealousy or praise. The old saying goes ‘Pride Goeth Before a Fall’ and “Jealousy is a curse”.
Evil Eye for Those in Public
There is a theory that very famous people and celebrities suffer more personal misfortune than others because they are subjected to more public ‘viewing’ and envy through the media.

In Mexico, rolling a raw egg over the body of the victim is the antidote. Afterward, it is cracked open, and if the metaphysician or healer finds that the yoke is in the shape of an eye then the person is considered to be cursed.
Several eggs may be repeatedly rolled over the person’s body until an egg without an eye appears. Sometimes the egg is placed underneath the person’s bed overnight and cracked open in the morning.
