Have you heard of the saying “he gave me the evil eye”? The meaning of this statement has its roots many centuries ago, but the symbolism is still very strong today.

What is the evil eye?
Some research places the origins of the evil eye in the Paleolithic age and it can be seen in all religions including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism. All of these religions believe that the evil eye is a curse that is directed towards a person, usually by giving them “the evil eye”. The curse will bring bad luck, negativity, and malice into your life and often the person receiving the glare does not even know that they have been “cursed”.
It is further believed that there are 3 different types of evil eyes. The first evil eye is the unconscious eye, this is an unintended glance and adds harm unintentionally. The second type of evil eye intends to bring negativity and malice. The final type of evil eye is the most dangerous, it is the unseen eye. When a person looks at someone or something positive with thoughts of jealousy or malice, that is when they bring the evil eye to the person they are looking at.
