The evil eye is a symbol that can be found all over the world. It is described as the glare given to someone out of spite, malice or envy, which can bring misfortune, suffering or bad luck to the recipient of the look. It is said that this evil glare can hold a great deal of power as it can bring harm to the person that it's aimed at. People who are successful and happy in life can attract envy from the people around them. Of course they may not be aware of this and even the person delivering the glare can be unaware of their energy. Many cultures believe that jealousy is the main source of the evil eye. Having this symbol present is a way of warding off the evil eye from others. It is a form of protection.
