Protection magic has been with us since the beginning of time. We have sought protection from the harshness of the natural elements, the wrath of gods and goddesses, and, unfortunately, from envy and ill intent from fellow humans. Throughout history in art and sculpture, protection often appears using the symbol of the eye. The ancient Egyptians used the Eye of Horus to ward off negativity. In the Mediterranean, an eye charm or amulet is a popular form of protection against the "evil eye." The evil eye, or malocchio, as it is called in Italy, is a curse directed at you by another person, usually driven by emotions of fear, malice, or jealousy. Victims of the evil eye experience illness and bad luck. You can make your own protective eye charm by painting an eye on a rock or stone. Keep it with you or in your car or desk drawer for protection and imagine it keeping you from harm.
