From as far back as 3,000 BC the evil eye, known as “mati” (μάτι) permeated through ancient Greek culture, it was a curse thought to be given by a malicious glare that can cause bad luck or loss. You may have heard someone giving you the "evil eye" from across the room - and many people around the world believe this to be more than just a saying.
People can knowingly wish negative thoughts on you, but the power of the eye is that some people unknowingly and innocently cast the curse on others. That's why it's important to wear an evil eye “mati” (μάτι) somewhere on your body to ward off this curse and protect yourself throughout the day.
