A Secret for Success?
Chances are you must’ve noticed the symbolic jewelry worn by many famous celebrities. Symbolic jewelry isn’t just worn because it looks good. As a matter of fact, they usually have a hidden metaphysical meaning behind them.
The Evil Eye Used in Symbolic Jewelry
The universal symbol of the evil eye actually comes from Greek mythology and is called “mati” in their language. This symbol was mostly used by people both in the Mediterranean and in West Asia before it took off to become a wildly recognized one.
In many cultures, the evil eye means an evil “stare” or “look” that brings people bad luck. It is believed that people can bring you bad luck if they look at you a certain way if they envy you, or even just if they really like something about you or that you have. Depending on the region, religion, and culture, there are different ways that people follow in order to protect themselves from it.
In the Muslim world, people usually repeat “Tabaraka Allah” after they see something they really like, in order to protect that person from their own evil eye. The phrase translates to “God bless”.
But the belief in the evil eyes dates back to way before Islam ever existed. In fact, it goes all the way back to the year 6 B.C. when the symbol first appeared on drinking vessels.
The evil eye was even talked about by many ancient authors and philosophers such as Plato, Plutarch, Hesiod, and many others. Every author believed that the evil eye affected us differently.
The way he explained it, Plutarch says that it is because the eye is the chief, if not the sole, source of the deadly rays that people possessing the evil eye throw on people like poisoned darts, his words. He also believed that possessing the evil eye is a curse and that people can affect others with it without their awareness
The evil eye in jewelry is designed as an amulet or a talisman and is in the shape of an eye that’s usually colored blue or green. Wearing anything that has an evil eye shape is believed to give you spiritual protection from the evil eye and will work as a repellent for all negative energy.
The evil eye talisman can be worn as a bracelet, a necklace, pendants, earrings, or even rings, and they all serve the same purpose.
Evil eye talismans aren’t only worn on the body. In fact, they are also used as decorations in houses or on top of doors and windows. In many houses around the world, you could find glass beads in the shape of the blue or green evil eye hanging from over the main door or over a window.
Placing them there is usually done so that they would protect the house from the curse of the evil eye and keep negative energy outside.
These aren’t the only reasons celebrities wear them. After all, the shape of this symbolic jewelry is very appealing that some people wear them without ever knowing what they are for nor what their history and origin are. The eyes are one of the most important parts of the human body, and the body of every living thing if you ask me.
Wearing them on you can be fascinating and really attractive to people’s eyes. And at the end of the day, we’re just imitating nature like we always have.
Why do celebrities wear them? Easy. This jewelry like we said is very appealing and some celebrities even believe in their benefits. This is why we’ve seen a lot of really famous people rocking on these amazing necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.
Why Celebrities Stopped Following Kabbalah
Everyone from Madonna to President Donald Trump’s ex-wife Marla Maples dabbled in the mystical religion of Kabbalah in the early 2000’s, but over the last few years, the trend has fallen out of style.
There was a time you couldn’t open an Us Weekly without seeing one covetable accessory: a red string Kabbalah bracelet. The religion was the celebrity spiritual moment du jour during the 2000s, and everyone from Madonna to Ashton Kutcher to Lindsay Lohan dabbled in the mystical religion. But in the decade since its heyday, the spiritual movement has all but faded from the forefront of popular culture, suffering major blows along the way. However, one tradition that has transcended both time and conviction is the ever popular wearing of evil eye jewelry and red string protection bracelets.
These are only a select few of the many people and celebrities who wear evil eye jewelry. People from different backgrounds, races, religions, and even social classes wear this jewelry every single day of their days. Some people do it just because they like how chic it makes them look, and some do it because they truly believe in their power.
