That being said, it’s interesting to see why so many people are bent on depending on talismans to get them through bad times. In many cultures we see the ‘evil eye’ being used to ward off evil. Let’s take a deeper look at one of the most popular talismans or good luck charms: the ‘evil eye.’
The ‘Evil Eye’
People have been obsessed with talismans for centuries. You probably have heard of the ‘evil eye’. If you haven’t, you’ve probably seen it. Writing for the BBC, Quinn Hargitai explains our fascination with the ‘evil eye’, and how it is still used today. Hargitai writes, “When it comes to warding off the mystic malevolent forces of the world, there is perhaps no charm more recognized or renowned than the ‘evil eye’. Ubiquitous in its use, the striking image of the cobalt-blue eye has appeared not only in the bazaars of Istanbul but everywhere from the sides of planes to the pages of comic books. In the last decade, evil eye imagery has most frequently appeared in the world of fashion. Kim Kardashian has been photographed on numerous occasions sporting bracelets and headpieces featuring the symbol, while fashion model Gigi Hadid jumped on the trend in late 2017, announcing that she would be launching the EyeLove shoe line. This recent endorsement from A-list celebrities has resulted in the surfacing of countless online tutorials for making your own evil eye bracelets, necklaces and keychains. Though all this attention would suggest the evil eye is seeing a sudden surge in popularity, the truth is that for thousands of years the symbol has maintained its steady hold on the human imagination.” (Hargitai, 2018). As we can see, people in all walks of life are fascinated by good luck charms and talismans.
Most of the time, people use good luck charms and talismans to protect them from bad things or to help them out of a jam. In the timeshare industry, countless people have been taken advantage of by deceitful companies. High-pressure sales tactics and blatant lies are not uncommon. If you are one of these people, seeking good luck charms and talismans to get you out of your troubles may be comforting, but they may not help you get out of your problems.
We know that good luck charms are still popular today. It’s interesting to learn about their origins to see why some are still believers in their powers. But can good luck charms and talismans help you overcome timeshare problems?
Overcoming Timeshare Problems
You may be wondering what you can do if you have been duped in a timeshare scam. Maybe you should consider contacting Wesley Financial Group. Scams dealing with timeshares can be hard to deal with alone. Talismans may not be the most helpful in overcoming your timeshare problems. Nevertheless, people are still fixated on talismans and good luck charms. Let’s take a look at the history of the ‘evil eye’. Hargitai writes, “To understand the origins of the evil eye, one must first understand the distinction between the amulet and the evil eye itself. Though often dubbed as ‘the evil eye’, the ocular amulet is actually the charm meant to ward off the true evil eye: a curse transmitted through a malicious glare, usually one inspired by envy. Though the amulet – often referred to as a nazar – has existed in various permutations for thousands of years, the curse which it repels is far older and more difficult to trace.” (Hargitai, 2018).
Based on the history of the ‘evil eye,’ it may not help you if the bad stuff has already happened. According to Hargitai, “In essence, the curse of the evil eye is not a complicated concept; it stems from the belief that someone who achieves great success or recognition also attracts the envy of those around them. That envy, in turn, manifests itself as a curse that will undo their good fortune. The concept is well captured by Heliodorus of Emesa in the ancient Greek romance Aethiopica, in which he writes, “When anyone looks at what is excellent with an envious eye he fills the surrounding atmosphere with a pernicious quality and transmits his own envenomed exhalations into whatever is nearest to him.” …What’s most fascinating about the evil eye isn’t its mere longevity, but the fact that its usage has deviated little over the course of millennia. We’re still affixing the evil eye to the sides of our planes in the same way that the Egyptians and Etruscans painted the eye on the prows of their ships to ensure safe passage.” (Hargitai, 2018).
