Combatting "The Evil Eye"
Hey all! For this edition of Spellwork Sunday I wanted to talk about one of the oldest spells, curses, and hexes in the book: The Evil Eye. The evil eye refers to the negative energies sent from one person to another, harming them simply with their gaze. While the Evil Eye is often non-intentional, the effects of this energy usually result in sudden disasters, sickness, or tragedy when previously everything was seemingly normal. To avoid the Evil Eye, be sure not to boast or brag about personal gains or goals, and be sure to protect yourself with talismans, amulets, and other objects.
The evil eye was first recorded by the people of Mesopotamia about 5,000 years ago in cuneiform on clay tablets, but may have originated as early as the Upper Paleolithic age. It was believed that this eye saw all the wickedness in the world. When Horus, the Egyptian god of the sky, opened his eyes, the world was enlightened. When he closed them, it became dark. From Egypt, the eye talisman spread throughout Europe, the Middle East and the Mediterranean. It is even mentioned in the Bible. The concept of the Evil Eye can be found across many languages and cultures:
Today we are going to focus on one way of banishing the evil eye using an unborn egg, preferred to be of a black hen, but not mandatory. Please note that this ritual will involve two people- the one to be cleansed, and the one doing the cleansing. You may do it to yourself by yourself, but for best results two people is ideal.

Altar Decor Setup & Suggestions
You can create a simple altar for this, or make it as lavish as you want. Whatever holds importance for your spell is up to you!
Once you’re done, you need to dispose of the egg properly. You can bury it in dirt or at a crossroads, asking for the negative energies and/or illness to be taken away from you. Or, you can flush it away in the toilet!
We recommend further protecting yourself after doing this ritual by hanging an Eye of Horus, or Mediterranean style Evil Eye amulet above the door. You may also poke nine iron nails into a lemon, and hang it from a red string above your door.
That’s it, you have done an egg cleansing! Always thank your deities or any form or entity that may have provided assistance with you on this.
