I’m very aware of the evil eye, there are people who you give you that glare, it could be friends and family members that are envious of us. But, sometimes some people do it without even knowing they’re giving the evil eye, it’s a natural look, some people are just spirituality Sensitive to it. It’s part of my culture, I’m a very Spiritual person and sensitive to the evil eye, so I constantly have to ward against evil eyes, including my home.
Blessings to you all!! May my Mother Oshun keep you safe from all evil 👿
