There are those who believe in it and those who do not, those who think it is an intrinsic evil and those who just an ancient belief: we are talking about the evil eye.
Very often, in fact, we hear about the evil eye, but almost no one knows what it really is. Just in this article we will try to give a valid and credible explanation to all the questions about this very particular subject.
What is the evil eye?
By evil eye is meant the ability of people or animals to generate events of negative nature just through a simple glance.
The explanation is therefore very clear, but the questions about it are many and the answers are not entirely exhaustive.
Trying to ask questions about this issue, could seem something crazy, but it is equally true that this is a concept now widespread that needs clear and comprehensive answers.
Very curious and interesting is the idea of good and evil widespread in the oriental culture, for which both are considered incorporeal and able to wander around the entire planet undisturbed.
These two energies, always on the move, travel through unknown methods and without any reasonable explanation: from this also comes the concept of evil eye and its malevolent power.
Next to popular beliefs, however, there is also science with its in-depth research.
The evil eye is a widespread concept, but at the same time a very strong form of superstition according to studies. According to age-old beliefs, some people have the ability to cast the evil eye unknowingly; others, however, do so voluntarily. In both cases, this stems from feelings of envy, obsession, anger, disappointment.
And so, can a simple glance bring so much bad luck? We will try to give an answer to this question in this article.
Evil eye: why is it called in this way?
Many people wonder why the evil eye is actually called in this way and, what there is more fascinating in the answer, is precisely that it is exactly as we imagine it.
In all cultures where this belief is widespread, it means to be looked at badly and, in some cases, to generate evil from the eye.
Therefore, it means to be looked upon badly by someone who feels pain, anger or envy and who desires the misfortune of others. He or she who generates negative events to the detriment of someone else, could undoubtedly be the cause of serious illnesses and psychosomatic pathologies that require full medical care.
It is very important to underline that, in some circumstances, medicine has great difficulty in identifying and treating the patient in a targeted and appropriate way, due to the absence of mental balance.
Evil eye: symptoms and procedures to diagnose it
Learning to recognize if you are a victim of the evil eye is not that difficult: generally, affected people feel a powerful headache, sadness, exhaustion, nausea and frequent mood swings.
Attention, it is very important to consider and never forget how the evil eye can act undisturbed in various areas of a person’s life and cause events of a negative nature.
In fact, it is believed that both emotional and professional lives, can be plagued by considerable misfortune.
In areas where the belief of the existence of the evil eye is very deep-rooted, there are experts who are perfectly capable of understanding if a person has been affected by adversity: they are, generally, very old women and deeply tied to tradition, handed down from generation to generation.
It is good to always keep in mind, however, that a trivial headache after a long and stressful working day may have nothing to do with the evil eye and, by virtue of this, it is important not to be overwhelmed by emotions.
It is clear that, for several of these symptoms, there is an exhaustive scientific explanation, for which it is always good to consult your trusted doctor.
We now come to the most common procedures for the diagnosis of the evil eye.
The most popular is well known as the Oil Rite (a liter of water and 3 drops of oil), according to which, the person affected by the evil eye, will have to sit in silence before a healer who will perform a series of actions.
In particular, the person who takes care of healing and restoring the balance, has the task to fill a dish with a little water and, keeping it with the left hand, draw the sign of the cross on the forehead of the victim of the evil eye for three times with the right hand.
Always the healer, then, repeats the secret words of the ritual for three times.
Next, he makes the sign of the cross (again for three), touches the edges of the plate and repeats the secret phrases again.
At the end of the procedure, it is time to pour the drops of oil into the dish observing their disposition in the water: if the oil spreads, the evil eye is acting; on the contrary, it has been present for a long time and it will be very difficult to leave the unfortunate person.

Reciting a prayer or a mantra without necessarily the help of an esoteric operator, is a very useful action to ward off the evil eye.
And then, you know, the transmission of negative energy can occur simply through a look, sometimes involuntary or unconscious, but that harms the psychophysical balance of the person: for this reason, the ancient popular beliefs, suggest the implementation of a series of rituals, not too complex, but still useful to fight the evil eye.

San Cipriano: the prayer against the evil eye
Ancient popular beliefs claim that the prayer of St. Cyprian is among the best methods to eliminate the evil eye and return to a peaceful lifestyle.
The prayer to remove the evil eye is divided into three basic parts of equal importance: repentance, praise to God and avert; the latter, then, can be repeated up to three times.
This is a very simple rite to learn by heart and ideal for all those moments dedicated to meditation and purification of the spirit: if repeated in a proper and orderly environment, in a low voice, it could be a valuable aid to find the right path.
At the end of the prayer, it is important to make three crosses on one’s forehead seven times with the oil that has been placed in the dish together with the water. It is recommended, then, to throw the remaining liquid as far away as possible.
Finally, pour another three drops of oil into a dish with water and check if the situation has regularized. If this is not the case, it is advisable to repeat the rite as many times as necessary.
If after several attempts the ritual is not successful, it is good to “cut” the drops of oil with a pair of scissors.
