Even if you did not know the significance or the meaning of it the first time it crossed your sight, it would immediately come back storming into your memory the moment you realize what it means. The penetrating gaze of the cobalt blue eyeball, the striking image it etches into your brain, and the depth of layers upon layers of the symbols it is swaddling; are all too familiar, all too mysterious.
The evil eye symbol is easily one of the most widely recognized symbols in the modern world today. From the street vendors in Istanbul to the souvenir shops in Paris to the historic bazaars of Cairo to the ethnic stores in New York City; for the discerning ones, evil eye jewelry can be found everywhere.
What Is The Meaning Of The Evil Eye?
You’ve seen it in comic strips, you have spotted it on mobile covers and you probably even remember it on Gigi Hadid’s neck. The evil eye charm – no matter what form it takes – is meant to ward off the ill-meaning gazes that may cause direct or indirect harm to a person’s life or happiness. While in some cultures, the evil eye is strongly believed in, many cultures or individuals will probably not pay much heed to the idea.
However, it is common scientific knowledge that every person emits an energy field or an aura. Every aura has a particular wavelength and frequency, creating the feeling of negativity or positivity around people. When some negative energy crosses into your energy field, it is bound to create a disruption in your aura and bring negative waves inside. A destructive aura attracts more adversity and may lead to building a negative mindset, which will ultimately affect the whole being of a person and impact their lives. This is how an evil eye can bring negativity and ultimately, misfortune.

Evil Eye: The history
Since the beginning of civilization, the concept of the evil eye has surrounded humans and their dealings with one another. While it may seem like a Mediterranean or mid-eastern or South Asian tradition, the idea traces its roots to the ancient Greek civilization. It also has religious connotations in several regions like Muslim societies, Christianity and Buddhism.
In various cultures, the Evil Eye emblem is considered to have supernatural powers, as it is thought to represent the most powerful part of the human body – the eye. It is found in the ancient Roman scriptures, referred to in Quran and Bible, and mentioned in the Greek texts dating as far back as 3000 BC.
Evil Eye, Nazar, or Mati; is a strong-willed stare filled with negative emotions that penetrates the aura of any person and transfers demonic energies to cause psychological and physical harm.
Different cultures used different amulets to keep that evil away off. The most common one is the Evil eye pendant and the Evil eye bracelet which is supposed to protect the wearer by warding off negative energies.
