The origins of the evil eye can be traced far back in Ancient Egypt, Greek, and Turkish history. The common belief is that the traditional mal de ojo, or evil eye, offers protection from hostile glances and negative energies. Its purpose is to watch over you and protect you, making sure no harm comes your way. It is believed that a hostile glance can harm someone, may it be intentional or unintentional. This harm can include anything from anger, hate, envy, mistrust, jealousy, ill-will, mockery, or revenge to name a few. The evil eye offers a protective barrier to that harmful glance. If the evil eye breaks or is damaged in any way, shape or form, that means it has absorbed any intent of harm. This is not a bad omen or sign, but rather means the evil eye did its job in offering you protection.
