“Haters going to hate” – okay, so what can we do about it?
Here in the USA, a lot of loud arguing is still going on after the recent election.
Perhaps, you’ve seen some postings in social media that raise your hackles.
We all have those pesky people who are just not on our side.
In Wicca, we use “banishing” as a process of getting rid or deflecting unwanted energy away from yourself. There are many ways to banish unwanted energies sent your way.
Sometimes, individuals feel that they have been hit by something called The Evil Eye.
It’s reported that the Evil Eye results from a malevolent stare that causes misfortune and injury. If someone is jealous or envious, they may manifest the Evil Eye. Some time ago, several celebrities wore a red string as their remedy for the Evil Eye. These celebrities were concerned about what they perceived as a sudden stretch of bad luck in their lives. The Evil Eye often causes such disruption.
In the past, I’ve attended Greek Festivals. I noticed a number of people wearing a nazar, which can be worn as a pendent, ring or other piece of jewelry. A nazar (which looks like a blue eye/amulet) can be placed on clothing or as a decoration in one’s home. The nazar’s purpose is to turn the negative energy of the Evil Eye away and to return it from whence it came.

Air and fire combine to create the blessed breath of the Gods.

Asperge your talisman with your holy water and pass the talisman over the sacred incense three times, as you say:
I consecrate you with earth and water; I charge you with fire and air.
Hold your talisman up and say:
I call the sun and stars to come forth,
I call the planets and the earth to come forth,
I call the seas and the rivers to come forth,
I invite the God and the Goddess to come forth,
Here and now to place Your powers of protection upon this, my talisman, to protect and shield me, keeping me safe from the Evil Eye.

Put on the talisman. Sit and visualize all the negative energy being turned away.
