The Danger of the "Evil Eye"

We have all heard of the “Evil Eye.” But what is that, really? Where does envy, jealousy resentment originate from? It starts in the eyes, when we see something we want, or someone we are jealous of. Since the eyes are the source of these negative feelings, we have come to understand these emotions as “the evil eye.”

The Kabbalah teaches that this type of negative energy can seriously affect our spiritual well-being. This type of negativity can prevent us from reaching our goals of spiritual growth and personal transformation. Even worse, the “evil eye” can send us backward along a path of growth we’ve already traveled.
