THE EVIL EYE
=========
(abstracted from the book of Rosemary Ellen Guilley)


i was watching a documentary in cable about a man who grew up and was adapted by a group of cannibals in new guinea, on the same place where the son of John D. Rockefeller disappeared and was eaten by the cannibals. the commentary is showing the old footages of the times when this particular tribe in new guinea was still practicing the traditional cannibalism and eating their enemies as a form of reverance. so i went to my personal library and check about the topic on EVIL EYE.the commentator is showing how some of the cannibals have the evil eye look when they stared at another human being. i was thinking, this evil eye is just thinking which part of the human anatomy is best to eat and feast upon. the commentator said the cannibals have to consult their witch doctor who has the evil eye to advise them about their cannibalism rites.

"the EVIL EYE is an ancient and nearly universal belief that certain individuals posses the supernatural power to wreak disaster, calamity, illness and even death with a glance or lingering look. the evil eye, is also called. "fascination" or "overlooking" or MAL OCHIO and JETTATURA, is greatly feared in the many parts of the world.

the oldest records of the evil eye dates back to about 3000b.c. in the cuneiform text of the sumerians and assyrians.the greeks and the babylonians and the romans believe in it. the romans are very afraid of it--- it is even mentioned in the bible.superstitions about the evil eye is still prevalent in europe, especially in the mediterranean. in mexico and central america.

the evil eye could be a witch, sorcerrers, witch doctor and medicine man. most cases evil eye is unintentional, however; a person may be cursed with evil eye from birth and they dont know it.

Pope Pius IX and Pope Leo XIII were both to possess the evil eye. consequently, believers must be on constant guard agaisnt the inadvertent malevolent glance. it may come from a stranger who admires ones children, along with women and animals, are particularly vulnerable to its effects.

THE EVIL EYE IS MOST LIKELY TO STRIKE WHEN ONE IS AT THE PEAK OF PROSPERITY AND HAPPINESS.
