Dears, I am not here to open up any debate on faith Vs Superstitions. Definitely not here to open a can of worms at this moment. This is purely to share my personal experience, as well as to enlighten others who may be sailing in the same boat as me. Here we go :- Many cultures believe that receiving an evil eye will cause misfortune. The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. It is believed to bring bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike. My mom used to perform certain rituals & prayers believing her attempts will protect us from evil eyes. When we were young, we used to tease at her, and never believed this kind of superstitions, that do not have a solid scientific backing. Regardless of mom's rituals, we had bad lucks in life ranging from mild fever to the death of a family member. But, none of us believed it was due to evil eyes. We took them all as part & parcel of living, and accepted what life threw at us. Of late, I have started wondering about evil eyes, and the negative effects in life due to the pattern in which I faced problems. In this regard, I've started doing a mini-research at personal level, and found out certain facts that corroborate to what our ancestors believed in. This is even cited in many religious scriptures and are believed in many developed cultures, including the Jews. The holy bible speaks about evil eyes as follows:- Matt 6:22-23 : “If, however, your Eye is Evil, your entire body will be full of darkness” Proverbs 23-6 : “Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats.” The Hindu religion has its own ways of warding evil eyes, including drishti pariharams, Nazar etc.. They play an important role in Hindu rituals. Al-Quran has a special prayer dedicated for this, verse 51 and 52 of Al-Qalam (Q68:51-52) in the Quran. It is usually recited for protection from the evil eye. Many Jews say "bli ayin hara" (Hebrew, "without an evil eye") or "ken eina hara" or "keynahora" (Yiddish, "no evil eye") when referencing something positive that has happened. Their holy book Torah speaks a lot about this matter. But who are those evil eyes? We interact with many people, share our happiness with plenty. And the world is now becoming a small village and it is impossible to lead a secretive life in this social media era. I am an active social media user. I have around 5K friends & many followers in FB & IG. I use tiktok and upload videos in Youtube too. I have been using FB since 2007, and the other apps since long. I used to post many things in social media, including the happy news, success, sadness etc..etc... People used to advice me to limit the information I share in FB, because not everyone is genuinely happy about your success. But, it never bothered me! Of late, I see a massive difference in my life. A pattern of falling sick or experiencing something very bad after every success/happiness I achieve. As advised by many, I stopped sharing my personal details in social media as a first step of prevention. But nothing changed. For the past 4-5 years, the story remains unchanged. That is, a sudden health issue or a serious family problem or a severe financial loss after each and every happy thing/success we experience. This is so real, as I have the evidence of dates, and details in chronological order to validate this. This is not the case when our life is stable. The problem is always after a success only. Although I stopped sharing in social media, I continued to talk to close family members & friends in real life as well as in whatsapp. This included sharing of family matters, success, plans & everything. This time, I started suspecting them and wanted to test this out. These are the people I can't hide anything from them. I mean, they are so close, and so connected to my family. Like my sister & family, brother & family, mom's brother & family, and my in laws (PILs, BILs & family) and few of my best friends & family. For the past 1 year or so, I started sharing my happiness with the extended family in batches. Of course in rotation. First I would tell the news to one set of family and wait for 1 week, and then share with the other. Again wait for 1 more week. Like wise, I did this religiously to find out the black sheep among us. You wouldn't believe what I've found out. Yes, each time we became sick or encountered a bad fight at home after sharing our happiness with Family X. Not just once, but many times! Sharing the same details with other family members, including with those who weren't at great terms didn't affect us. Surprisingly family X is one of the very closest family we have. For instance: I've got promoted, and that's something I've yearned for many years! So, obviously I was very happy. Our finance improved, we decided to make a big investment in Sri Lanka and this was shared with my close buddies in batches. Everything went well, until the message was revealed to family X as it was something unavoidable. Boom!!! That night itself I had a terrible stomach pain, got admitted in the hospital. After an abdominal scan, the doctors decided to perform hysterotomy and suspected cancer. For the next 2 weeks, the entire family was in pain, until the results came back negative. But the recovery was very bad. This is just once example of what we went through over the past 4-5 years since family X became "our" extended family. This may sound illogical, a superstition or whatever to those who have not experienced this kind of effects in their lives. I respect you for that, and wish you remain protected. I feel humbled for having been protected this far, despite of every bad thing that happened in my life. If it was not for God/the super power, I wouldn't be here explaining my encounters. Than God, we are out of the country now! Having said that, I urge you all to have a research at your level & be mindful when sharing your happiness with others. We always doubt some unknown fellow in social media can be harmful, but the culprit may sit next to you and do all the harm without your knowledge. Just be mindful.
