Turkish Evil Eye


The Evil Eye  The Lucky Eye
An ancient symbol that is regarded in many cultures as a potent amulet for protection against evil forces . . .

On a recent trip to Turkey, the lucky charm was present around every bend . . . I knew it was going to be a relaxing and safe vacation. It is believed that the eye deflects all negative energy or thoughts directed towards a person back onto itself, dispersing its powers – the staring eye is supposed to bend the malicious gaze back to the source.

The Nazar, or Eye, is always blue. The Anatolian belief is that the blue color of the stone holds the real protective power and absorbs all negative energy. Mediterranean nations strongly believe in the protective powers of the color blue. For this reason, so many front doors of houses in these countries are painted in the cool hue.

In the Turkish culture, the Evil Eye pendant is attached to anything and everything that may attract envy or greed — pinned to infants’ clothing, set into the foundation of homes and modern office buildings, charms worn around necks and wrists. You see the eye everywhere . . . they’re definitely a popular tourist souvenir but are also a very real part of everyday life in Turkish culture.
