The Kabbalah Red String: Protection
against the Evil Eye
A person possessed of an evil eye carries with him the eye of the destroying
negative force; hence it is called "destroyer of the world," and
people should be on their guard against them and not come near them so that
they should not be injured by them! [Zohar I, p.68b]
Rachel and The Red String
The Red String has been used as a tool of protection for centuries. The practice,
developed by the sages, involves winding the red string around the tomb of
the great Matriarch, Rachel located in the Land of Israel. The string is
then cut it into pieces and worn on the left wrist. The left hand is considered
by Kabbalah to be the receiving side for the body and soul. By wearing The
Red String on our left wrist, we can receive a vital connection to the protective
energies surrounding the tomb of Rachel. It also allows us to take Rachel's
powerful protective energy with us and draw from it anytime.
Red String vs The Kippah
Many believe that the Red String is meant solely for protection. Actually that
is a misconception about the Red String. The Red String is a powerful reminder
of who we are and of why we are here in this world. They remind us that we
should love our neighbor as we love ourselves and that we should love the
Creator above all else. They also remind us that we are on the path of spiritual
transformation, especially at times when the ego flares up and tries to get
the best of us. Many Jews and Kabbalists wear a kippah (head covering) at
all times, while others wear it only during prayer and study. For those that
wear a kippah at all times, it also serves as a reminder for the same purpose
as the Red String.
