Vaccine Against Envy: The Red String
Amazingly, the red string works in a similar way to modern vaccines. We wear it around the left wrist, and just like a weakened strain of virus which is injected into a person to give his immune system the strength to fight the real virus if it should ever attack us, the specific energy frequency of the color red broadcasts “danger”, protecting us from the dangers of envy, jealousy and resentment.
In addition, the string is processed in a unique way to add to its protective force. A long length of red string is wound around the tomb of Rachel the matriarch. Kabbalists consider Rachel the paradigmatic “mother”, and as such, a protective force always ready to defend her children. According to the Kabbalists the burial sites of great people are sources of the positive energy the exuded during their lives. By wrapping the red string around Rachel’s tomb, the string absorbs the energy of loving mothering and protection. By wearing this string this energy comes to protect us.
