Do you want to use a symbol for good luck? The evil eye or the traditional Turkish blue evil eye is the same symbol that is still used as an important symbol with its thousand-year history.
Many people still believe that the evil eye will help them to protect and attract luck. So what is the evil eye? What are the hidden meanings behind each color? These are the questions we are going to answer. But first we have to understand where the root of this evil eye came from?! Let’s go:
Where does the evil eye come from?
As I write these paragraphs, on the wall in front of my desk is a large dark blue evil eye pendant. When and where was the evil eye really used for the first time? Here, this is the story behind the evil eye!
Indeed, the evil eye has been around for centuries and even thousands of years. More precisely, from 3000 BC, belief in the evil eye permeated many cultures. This type of belief existed in ancient Greece, Rome, Italy, Turkey, as well as in Buddhist, Islamic, and Hindu traditions. Similarly, it has spread in the modern era as well.
In the past, there was no proven scientific reason for terrible events such as strange and contagious diseases, bad luck, defeats in battles, accidents and unusual deaths. So people considered these events to be the curse of envious people with bad intentions. For this reason, our ancestors started using the image or the evil eyes themselves to avoid these curses. And they believed that this would reflect that evil look on the person who made the curse.
What is the evil eye?
The evil eye, also known as Nazar eye, Mal de Ojo, Ojo Turco, or MATI, is actually a curse. It can impose this curse on an unknowing person from a malicious, spiteful and malevolent point of view. For this reason, the recipient of this curse may suffer bad luck, misfortune, damage, loss or death later!
In a simpler explanation, we can say that the evil eye is a curse that says that others may envy those who achieve brilliant success. As a result, this jealousy will destroy the life and happiness of those people in the form of a curse.
Traditionally, it is believed that people who are more vulnerable to this curse include children, pregnant women and animals. On the other hand, people who are accused of having the evil eye include childless women, old women, defective people, jealous people, and strangers.
Finally, the easiest way to break the power of this curse is to use the evil eye in your accessories or as a pendant in your environment. The traditional color of the evil eye is dark blue, which is used for protection and good karma. But apart from this color, there are other colors that are for the evil eye.
