Why is this post called Power of the Bad eye, well because in my culture & in fact many of the oldest cultures in the world including Christianity, we are warned of people being envious of others & what they have & to watch out for this.
My friends in Turkey always tell me not to speak so much of the greatness of my family & my life, just in case a person who is listening, would feel envious & without them even knowing it, the Bad eye or (as the Italians call it & have made glass beads for it for thousands of years) the Evil Eye would show its true colors.
You may not know the whole story of people's lives. For example, how my parents trip to puerto Rico was a gift & a result of saving for many months to be able to go, or my sister & her family saved for months so they can go on this trip to Lake Tahoe, what you hear is not always as Rosy as it sounds, life is good, one should never be envious of others lives, just be happy for them. I have a Friend in California who's grandparents are from Mexico & the Evil eye is commonly known in her day to day life as the Haters, those who can not stand the happiness of others, so they COVET & or are ENVIOUS of what they think they do not have.
So today I am sad for my family, for their vacation going bad, but you know what, I am happy for them always, as their hearts are good & they are safe & sound.
