nada de eso es real, son viejas creencias que se remontan al tiempo en que no habia suficientes doctores para consultar, y la gente se inventaba (y creia) todo tipo de mal, no dejes que eso manipule tus pensamientos, mejor analiza los sintomas de tu hijo y consulta a un medico y ora por el, Dios te escucha cuando tu clamas por amor de tus hijos, creemelo yo he pasado por eso. Que el Señor de Gloria te bendiga a ti y a tu bebe.

this happened to me as a baby. My "buela" told my mom to take an egg and rub it over me and pray. Than put the egg in water under my crib. In the morning she said she saw the shape of an eye and she freaked and flushed it down the toilet. (this was after she had taken me to the doctor and he told her there was nothing wrong).

I went to Nayarit, Mexico with my son Xavier when he was a baby and my Tia Piedad told me he had mal de ojo.... Anyways I wasn't sure if I believed in that since I grew up in Arizona and nobody taught me about that. Well she took my son to her friends house "a que le sobaran el ojo" and she claims it went away. There was some praying and something "con un huevo" It all seemed really fishy to me. But whatever... I still don't really get it!

Acts 3:16 By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.

I don't believe in it. I remember growing up and my mom saying that some people can give it and some can't. Segun my tia could and the way to get rid of it was that the person who gave it was suspose to put una cruz on the baby's forehead pero de saliva! yeah really didn't make sense. The egg thing my mom used to do it for the empacho.



I would take you child to the doctor if he/she has a fever. si tiene colicos entonces dale te de manzanilla. But best of all, Pray.

Yes, I do.
In Latin America, Azabache Bracelets are worn to protect against the Mal de ojo, or evil eye. The evil eye is believed to result of excessive admiration or envious looks by others. Having newborn babies wear an azabache (a gold bracelet or necklace with a black or red coral charm in the form of a fist), is believed to protect them from the evil eye.

The evil eye is a folk belief that the envy elicited by the good luck of fortunate people may result in their misfortune, whether it is envy of material possessions including livestock, or of beauty, health, or offspring.

I don't think it's about twins or not. It's more of someone just capturing your attention. The person who's attention was peaked is suppossedly the person who does the ojo. It's like a vibe they send out and it's said that they are suppossed to touch the thing or person to avoid the thing breaking or the person getting sick. It is also said that if you wear a bracelet of an ojo de venado (deer eye) it captures the vibe and you don't have to worry about anything. Those are usually sold in the yerberias.

I don't know if this is real or not...all I know is that when I was small I had an aunt that couldn't stop looking at me and everytime she left without touching me I would get physically sick. I would have fevers and sweats, vomitting and chills and as soon as she would return and touch me...everything just seemed to go away. My mom would tell me she would affect me physically with the vibe or energy from her stare. Whether you believe in it or not it can't hurt to do whatever you need to do to make you little ones feel better.

Well I dont really believe in da "brujeria" stuff but my aunt believes in it ALOT! she did that "ojo" thing and it was SO call removed..also mah mom had another lady come and do some thingy with the water in her mouth and did an outline of her body while swirling the water..sometimes it seemed like she was going to choked but "according" to her it meant someone was jealous of her. the list goes on.But really pray for them and don't listen to the old rancheros myths!

HI OFELIA! MY NAME IS ANTONIA AND WHAT I RECALL, MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD DO IS GET AN EGG RUB IT ALL OVER THEIR BODY AND FEETS, AND PRAYING AT THE SAME TIME. MAYBE 20MINS AFTER THAT, CRACK THE EGG INTO,1/2 OF GLASS OF WATER. THEN PUT UNDER THE BABIES BED. IF YOU REALLY BELIEVES THIS YOULL SEE AN EYE. HEY THATS WHAT I USE TO HEAR MY GRANDMA SAY. AND ANOTHER THING, IS CALLED OJO DE VENEDADO. I HOPE THIS HELPS.

I too believe in this, and have had to do the egg thing to my son numerous times when he was a baby. I was constantly telling people to touch my son.

I have 5 kids and my father-in-law did the egg thing for my first. Out of habit I do make everyone touch my children when the compliment them because I don't want them to get ojo. I've noticed my children really do get colicy after going to a party, or going out. I'm baptist now and don't practice the egg thing but I make sure I give them mylecon drops for gas or tylenol before bed after parties and it works for me.

I have a freind who deeply believes in this and I asked her why and how it works.

She says you say a series of prayers and the egg is just a symbol, rubbed all over while the prayers are being said for both the mommy to see, something is at work and the child to see, when you feel sick, do something about it. the egg is cracked to break and release the 'bad spirit' and leave the sick little one. She only does it for lite stuff, if really sick and high temperatures and stuff, she is the first one to run to the doctor.

I do not believe on any of those myths... I say pray for your child every night while rocking him to sleep and every morning when he wakes up. If you need any prayer advice let me know and I will send you a nice family prayer and bible versus.



God Bless

My daughters fathers family believe strongly in this and said my daughter had it several times as a child they performed some type of saying with an egg and then cracked the egg in a glass if the egg came out whole then they had it and it was removed. if the egg broke then they didnt have it. I personally didnt believe in it period.
