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)

Al malojo... ay que cosas...recuerdo que pequeñita oía essa palabrita terríble.
En Colombia le ponemos a los babys recién nacidos una pulserita roja...
Creo que se hace lo mismo aqui en Brasil.
Mi hijo menor fue acometido por éso en su segundo día de nacido!

Regarding: "mal ojo would fly into your mouth...yuk!"

Sounds worse than looking up to admire a bird flying overhead when, oops! (opened mouth: "splat").


Love this stuff. Keep blogging!

That ancient Egyptian wore cosmetics to ward away the evil eyes is news.

Interestingly we've been reading a book about ancient Egyptian philosophy of time this last week.

The third part, that of the New Kingdom, coincides with the period of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibit, "Beyond Babylon," the bronze age era of the ancient world, we'd visited last month.

Most interesting, how various elements in one's life can link up, make patterns, unexpectedly.

Love, C.

So where does the evil eye actually come from? It can be transferred but what is it? An evil spirit, negative energy? And how could you do something so bad without realizing it?

I know that some people spread negative energy around, or "suck energy from others", but the evil eye sounds much worse. So what is it actually?

Mermaid said...

This is something to definitely to ponder. I would have never ventured to think the envious eye of another could bring on an evil eye, resulting in those symptoms. Great perspective, thanks for the blog.

Excellent post, thank you!

hmmm... i beleive that if someone gives you envoius look then this person gets this back 90% himself or herself. I think its very hard to give someone the evil eye. If you send out bad thoughts then you get them back 90% yourself.
Also i beleive into building a "stone wall" around yourself so you dont let in others bad thoughts.

i went with my mom, sister, and niece to a curandera. she reads everyones palms and tells them if they have a spell or something wrong with them, and also a bit about them. the lady read my palms and said i could see what was going to happen before it happened in my dreams. she also said i wasnt just any regular guy, and said other things as well. what do you suggest i do ???

Larissa said...

Its simple really... If someone has
strong emotions and feel jealous or angry that will cause the "mal de ojo" and that other person. My gram pa would always say that he could give to someone super easily so he would always touch and bless the person who he would admire or comment on.

Awful to even having to consider that someone could envy another or be jealous and give the 'evil eye'. Horrible!!!

XxRavenxX said...

hello i need your help. i have a baby brother that has consant ojo and we think its the family causing it. how do i tell what the shapes in it mean? and any other tips that could help prevent it?

From what I know giving someone "Ojo" doesn't have to come from envy or jealousy. Someone can give you ojo by admiring your appearance. Some people have stronger energy to give ojo than other because they have a more powerful energy. The "cure" to ojo is simply having the person who gave it to you touch you, if they don't one can become very sick until they are touched by the other.
But also people have different views of ojo depending on where they are from[:
