I’m sure I’ve had several people give me the evil eye. It is a little scary sounding. Yes, people who do this may intend less than good to the recipient. Does this mean less than good will happen in your life? It depends. First, you must believe in it.
There are some downright mean people in this world. They are not happy about a darn thing. And they try to bring others down to their level with their negative energies. It’s not pretty. Maybe, you have met these people; hopefully you have not nor ever will.
Backstory: At an event, a man placed his hand on my shoulder. I promptly told him that he was in my space, and he removed it. I did not like that energy – for good reason. That same man had dogs snarling at him until he was far enough away from them.
Keeping the evil eye at bay takes a lot of energy. I do not allow it to enter my space. I do my normal house cleansing and sage to remove energies weekly, sometimes more. It is exhausting at times when dealing with those who wish not the best for you.
I do know that these people who give the evil eye, or are just mean, need help. In my mind, I figure some not so great things have happened to them, maybe not even in this lifetime. It could be something they carry through lifetimes and/or through the ancestorial line.
Since I see this in people, it makes me wonder about my own meanness. What you see in others is your work too. Have I always been perfect, no, but I try. Intentionally inflicting pain on someone is not my style. I care way too much, even if their intentions are not for my highest and best.
Being the reporter I am, I always want to get the story straight. If someone is misinformed, I will let them know what I know to be true. This does not go over well with those who want a particular story to be retold.
People who are mean want to walk over you. Do not allow it.
I talked with one of my friends about this blog and she told me of a particular scene in the movie, “The Help.”
“All you do is scare and lie to try to get what you want. You’re a godless woman. Ain’t you tired, Miss Hilly” referring to one of characters who was mean down to the soul.
Do not allow less than good in. Continue to be you. Bring your goodness out. Send love and light to those in need.
If by chance you believe in the evil eye, wear a talisman, like the photo.
Blessings of Peace and Love!
