A lot of attention is being given these days to the study of the Kabbalah, that mystical segment of Jewish studies that is supposed to give explanations as to the relationship between the spiritual and the physical; or between the realm of Heaven and the physical realm of Man on earth.
Along with the books and other material available to those who try to undertake Kabbalah studies with a group or on their own, a considerable amount of charms, amulets and other items are being marketed as Kabbalah Amulets and Charms. These items vary in design as well as cost, with some of them being quite expensive if made of gold and incorporating precious and semi-precious stones.
The validity of these items is still debated, as many Kabbalah scholars say that jewelry items of any kind, even with so-called religious significance, are forbidden by Jewish law. Forbidden or not, the popularity of these charms is well known as many of them are alleged to bring the wearer good health as well as happiness and prosperity.
Designs for these charms are varied and can be extremely simple, such as the well known Kabbalah Red String which is in reality a braided red string with perhaps a small charm such as a Hamsa Hand or Heart included. Many types of jewelry said to be derived from Kabbalah names are said to give protection against evil, otherwise known as the Evil Eye. These charms may include a Hamsa Amulets (palm) known as a Chamsa in Hebrew (Five), with the watchful eye design in the center. The Five fingers amulet in some Jewish teachings are to symbolize the five books of the Torah, Judaism's most sacred book of laws. The eye in the middle is the 'All Seeing Eye' or Eye of the Almighty, said to be always on the lookout against the forces of evil.
Wearing Amulets and Charms derived from the symbols of the Kabbalah is becoming more and more popular, and many famous personalities and movie stars are wearing them with the hope of obtaining benefits from their powers. As to whether or not these items are really beneficial, that is up to the opinion of those who wear them. As some modern biblical and Kabbalah scholars are saying; "it they make you feel better, then why not wear them?"
As you may have seen lately the Kabbalah Red String has been worn by many people the world over regardless of religion. We are proud to offer one of the largest selection of Kabbalah jewelry and of course the Original Red String Kabbalah bracelet, that is the authentic Red Kabbalah String from the Kabbalah Center in Israel. We invite you to find out about the Red String technology and the story behind it.
About the Kabbalah Red String
Long ago, the ancient Kabbalah scholars revealed a powerful technology of protection. Its purpose is twofold: to protect us from the envious looks of others, and to help us eliminate feelings of jealousy and resentment in ourselves. The technology is the Red String: a strand of Red wool worn around the left wrist.
The teachings of Kabbalah do not include prohibitions or commandments. Instead, the kabbalah speak of positive and negative energies. The negative energies of jealousy and envy emanate through the eyes—which gave rise to the very vivid and very ancient term, the Evil Eye.
The Evil Eye is part of the wisdom history of all humanity. It was spoken of by Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. It was written of in the Bible. It has been accorded fear and respect by kings, queens, and conquerors throughout the ages. The ancient Greek seafarers painted eyes on the prows of their ships as protection against this power. The Romans called it "Oculus Malus". To the Scots it was "Droch Shuil". Kabbalah scholars refer to it as "Ayin Harah". According to the Kabbalah, this form of negative energy can affect our lives and well-being. It can hold us back from achieving our destinies and it can also cause us to lose what we have already achieved.
How the Kabbalah Red String Works
Worn around the left wrist, the Kabbalah Red String works in the same way as the vaccines of modern medicine. When we receive a vaccination against a disease, a weakened strain of the illness is integrated into the vaccine. Spiritual immunizations are based on a similar principle. Kabbalah teaches that colors have specific frequencies and energies. Red, for example, is the color of danger. By binding a Red String to ourselves in a very specific manner, we shield ourselves against the dangerous negativity that might be directed our way, a spiritual vaccine against the destructive forces of the Evil Eye.
The color Red is one part of the technology. The rest begins in Israel, where a length of Red String is wound around the tomb of Rachel, the Matriarch of the Bible. Rachel is considered by Kabbalah scholars to be the mother of the world, and her greatest desire is to defend all of her children from evil. Throughout her life, Rachel acted as the protector of all humankind. According to Kabbalah, the burial sites of the righteous are a portal to the energy they created in their lifetimes. The Red String is brought to Rachel’s tomb where it is infused with her force of protection, for no power is stronger than a mother’s natural protective love. Each and every Red String from the Kabbalah Center must undergo this process in order to be considered an authentic form of protection against the Evil Eye.
Wearing the Kabbalah Red String
The Red String is individually sized and worn around the left wrist. The left side of the body has been identified by Kabbalah scholars as the area where energy enters. The left arm and hand pertain to the concept of receiving; the right arm and hand embody the power of imparting. Negative forces, therefore, enter the body through the left side. By wearing the Red String on the left wrist, negative energies are intercepted at the precise point of entry. The string is tied in a carefully prescribed sequence of seven knots, each of which symbolizes a separate spiritual dimension that infuses our reality.
Have someone you love and trust tie the Red String to your left wrist. First, have them tie the string closely around your wrist with a simple knot. Repeat by knotting the string six more times for a total of seven knots. Now make a promise to yourself that you will refrain from negative thoughts or talk about others. This harmful behavior will interfere with your effort to gain personal fulfillment and protection. Then have the person finish by saying the Ben Porat Prayer (read from right to left) which prevents others from giving us the evil eye.
