For the longest time the evil eye talisman has been worn or placed on walls or doors to ward off the ill intent of others. In this video Helen shares with you her experiences and uses of the evil eye while growing up in her Greek Cypriot culture. Please visit Helen’s website at and follow her on Twitter at

    Great video! I was raised Roman Catholic in the church tceiling here was a
    eye painted My grandma teld me it was the eye of god and he was watching
    us. Grade school we made god’s eye out of popcicle sticks and yarn I didn’t
    know what they symboled but I made them for just about everyone in the
    family. I am older and on my new path that I love I understand better. My
    daughter and me are going make them today to celebrate litha plus today is
    my mom’s birthday so it will be a great gift for her.

    Ironically, I have a Hamsa plaque that is by my front door that my parents
    brought back for me from Tunisia and I’ve had it by my front door for
    protection for years. Funny that you are doing this video because just two
    days ago my partner went to Tarpon Springs, FL which is all Greek and I saw
    the eye on a lot of stuff there. Never knew of it being associated with
    Greek culture…very cool!

    Here in Italy we do believe in the evil eye too (we call it Malocchio). But
    we don’t have the eye talisman, nor anything like the hand of Fatima. To
    chase away all bad influences we just use certain gestures, prayers or just
    laugh :) nice vid, by the way.

    @adamisking666 why be envious? :) make your own million with
    manifestation.Envy only blocks your own manifestation.The eye is also a
    visionary tool to see the future and for them forecast sales/losses etc

    @Helenhealer you’ve been busy! The retrograde motion of the earth is one
    degree every 72 years – the angle of a pentagram. 72 happens 360 times =
    25,920 years. Hope you got my vids you asked for on your ‘evil eye’
    piece… peace.
