evil eye QUESTION from Erik on August 8, 2002 Dear John-Paul Ignatius
Recently I spent my vacation i Turkey. In many shops they sold bracelets,paintings and other things, but with the same naked eye on a blue background. I understand that this is some sort of ammulette or charm.
My wife bought a bracelet with this eye. I told her that it wasn't a good thing to buy and it had some occult background. I prayed a short prayer of exorcism over it and thoght be alright so.
Then the same night, I woke up and felt that fear and feeling of death came over me.
Next day we decided to get rid of it and I trew it away.
Do You know the origins of these amulettes? From wich religion/cult?
Whose eye is it?
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on August 13, 2002 Dear Erik:
This is an occult amulet that has a long history in the region. It was probably a good thing to get rid of it if you were experience negative things.
One writer explains one story about the evil eye....
Once upon a time (yes, it starts like in a fairy tale) there was a rock by the sea that, even with the force of a hundred men and a lot of dynamite, couldn't be moved or cracked. There was also a man in this town by the sea, who was known to carry the evil eye (Nazar). After much effort and endeavor, the town people brought the man to the rock, and the man, upon looking at the rock said, My! What a big rock this is. The instant he said this, there was a rip and roar and crack and instantly the immense and impossible rock was found to be cracked in two.
The force of the evil eye (or Nazar) is a widely accepted and feared random element in Turkish daily life. The word *Nazar* denotes seeing or looking and is often used in literally translated phrases such as Nazar touched her, in reference to a young woman, for example, who mysteriously goes blind.
Another typical scenario. A woman gives birth to a healthy child with pink cheeks, all the neighbors come and see the baby. They shower the baby with compliments, commentating especially on how healthy and chubby the baby is. After getting so much attention weeks later the baby is found dead in his crib. No explanation can be found for the death. It is ascribed to Nazar. Compliments made to a specific body part can result in Nazar. That's why nearly every Turkish mother fixes with a safety pin a small Boncuk on the child's clothes. Once a Boncuk is found cracked, it means it has done his job and immediately a new one has to replace it.
