Spiritual Illness: Mal de Ojo (The Evil Eye)

Hola Espiritistas (spiritualists),

Today brings me to a subject that I have been getting a lot of questions about.....Mal Ojo...since just recently I met up with a woman who was suffering with it.

Envy and the evil eye have been feared for hundreds of years. The oldest reference of the evil eye can be found in the texts of the Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians, around 3000 BC. Both the Old and New Testaments refer to the evil eye. I read somewhere that the ancient Egyptians believed that if they wore eye makeup and lipstick it would help to keep the evil eye from entering into their eyes or mouths. Can you imagine living in those times, carelessly walking around the city without wearing lipstick, minding your own business, and all of a sudden a big fat mal ojo would fly into your mouth...yuk!

Most people today believe the evil eye is caused by the envious look of another person. The envy of the person, although they mean no harm, is transferred to the other and therefore is the cause of the illness. Back in the old day’s people believed that the evil eye could be transferred to another person either purposely or unintentionally. Also, today people believe that the evil eye mostly affects young children and babies but our ancestors believed that anyone was at risk. Why has this belief changed over the years? hmmmmm....

It’s my belief that mal ojo can affect men, women, children, teens, babies, animals, plants, and even your surroundings. The illness is as real...the energy it carries is real. I have seen many cases of it in all its forms, and have witnessed its power. You cannot cure a person of the evil eye and not expect to heal the persons home and surroundings as well. Like everything else, the evil eye carries a particular energy with it. Its energy is bad just as the illness is. It leaves behind the power to cause further damage such as obstacles, anger, fatigue, phantom pains in the body, and even other illnesses can surface. Without removing that energy attached to the evil eye you will leave behind its influence.

Some of the more common symptoms related to the evil eye are...
Loss of Appetite
Stomach Pains

The first thing that should be done is to cure the person who has this spiritual illness; afterwards the home should be spiritually cleansed. Sometimes this can be difficult. The way I would go about it is to first give the person a limpia with egg. This will accomplish two things. First, it will show the severity of the spiritual illness, and secondly it will remove some of it from the person.

In earlier blog entries I have talked about the ability of the egg, in its raw from, to remove negativity from the body, I have also talked about how to do a basic limpia. Once the spiritual cleansing has been performed you would then break the egg into a glass of water and look for signs in the yolk or in the whites. Many times when a person has the evil eye you will see the shape of an eye somewhere on the yolk itself. Other times the eye can be found in the whites of the egg. You will have to look closely at the contents of the glass but once you do find the eye it will stand looks just like an eyeball. Once you have inspected the egg you can dispose of it in the toilet.

You may have to do more than one cleansing on the person. You will eventually come to the point where the entire evil eye has been removed. You will know this....again by the sign of the yolk. Now you are looking for what I call “the line of separation”. This will be a solid white line that goes from one side of the yolk to the other, sometimes it goes all around the entire yolk, it sort of looks like a white string tied around the yolk itself. Once you see this line you know that the evil eye is completely gone.

In the meantime there are ways you can speed up the removal. One way if speeding this up is to get a small white plate, no designs, no patterns. Place a small glass of water on the center of a plate, a photo or holy card of El Nino de Atocha under the glass...if the person afflicted is a child....or the photo of St Michael if the person is an adult. Next sprinkle rosemary around the base of the glass. Take an egg, still in the shell, and hold it to the soles of the feet of the afflicted person for about 10 minutes. Now break the egg into the glass of water and place the plate and all its contents under the bed where they will sleep. In the morning check for signs in the water. You may find spots of blood or the water may have a bad odor. These are good signs that more is being drawn out of the person.

Until next time,
Luz y Progreso (Light and Progress)

Is it possible ro cleance myself???

Yes, you can cleanse yourself. Actually it's good to cleanse at least once a week in order to stay free of negativity that you may pick up during the week.

Hi, love your article, found it very informative... I believe and God and Jesus as my protector but I also think there are bad energies and some people whether by accident or on purpose will send bad intentions and negativity your way... I recently went to my native country of Nicaragua after not being there 16yrs, prior to that everything in my life was fine specially my health, however after being there two weeks and coming back home, all sorts of things have started happening to me, I keep getting sudden pain, I feel tired and most of all my beautiful hair is falling off, and not just a little, in a month and a half since I went there I have lost half of my hair... I have no health issues so I can't explain what's going on, my mom thinks it might be stress since I'm planning my upcoming wedding to be held in Nicaragua October 29, but I have known real stress and this hail falling is beyond that.. do you think someone could have given me the evil eye and it's causing my hair to fall off? Would you recommend a cleansing to get rid of any bad energies that might have been sent my way? Thank you in advance for your help. God bless..

Energies are very strong. It is possible you picked up the evil eye but it's also possible that you have just accumulated low level energy (negative energy)too. I can't tell you what is causing the problems you are having without you being here in person. As long as you have already seen a doctor and he has given you a clean bill of health then I would suspect something on the spiritual level. I would suggest that you have a spiritual cleansing done.

I recently found out that I was cursed with the evil eye as a baby, I'm now 42 yrs old. Is it too late for me to get rid of it? I feel like if it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all.
Thank you

Hi thank you for your article it's very use. Sadly I believe I have the evil eye I will do all of these rituals and share back. My question is I'm wanting to become a spiritual healer myself. How does one go about starting a healing health spa and do I need to go to school? Thank you

Elizabeth Angeliah said...

Hi not sure if you seen my message? How to become a spiritual healer do I need to go to a school? Thanks

Curious Curandera said...

Elizabeth, In my opinion if you don’t have someone that you can train with in person the next best thing is taking online courses from a knowledgeable person and reading all the books you can find on the subject. There are lots of good courses available online but you need to search for them. Once you find someone it’s a good idea to know a little about the person teaching the course. I offer online courses on my website if you are interested.

Curious Curandera said...

Mary, It’s never too late!

Elizabeth, Schooling depends on what type of healing spa you’re interested in. I don’t know the laws where you live. You might try contacting officials in your area to find out what is required.
