It is believed that by carrying an Evil Eye talisman or an Evil Eye charm with us, such as The Hand of God, Hamsa ( khamsa, Hamesh), Hand of Fatima, Miriam Hand, a Kabbalah red string, or the Italian cornicello (little horn) also called the cornetto, we can ward off the Evil Eye.
Rachel and The Red String
The Red String has been used as a tool of protection for centuries. The practice, developed by the sages, involves winding the red string around the tomb of the great Matriarch, Rachel located in the Holy Land, Israel. The string is then cut into pieces and worn on the left wrist. The left hand is considered by Kabbalah to be the receiving side for the body and soul. By wearing The Red String on our left wrist, we can receive a vital connection to the protective energies surrounding the tomb of Rachel.
Kabbalists believe that by seeking the Light of holy persons, such as Rachel, we can use their powerful influence to assist us. According to Kabbalah, Rachel represents the physical world in which we live. Her greatest desire is to protect and defend all of her children from evil. When we tie The Red String to our left wrist, while reciting the powerful Ana Be'Co'ach prayer we seal her powerful protective energy within us as it intercepts negative influences intended to cause us harm.
