The blue eye bracelet, mostly known as the evil eye bracelet, is being used for many centuries. I believe that almost all of us have owned one at some point.
For me, it was even my first contact with the crystal world and energies. I started using it just as a fashion accessory but quickly saw it was much more than just a pretty bracelet.
Even though almost everyone can use this bracelet, as it’s quite safe, there are some things you need to consider before getting one for yourself.
So, let’s now talk about the 7 side effects of the blue eye bracelet and who should avoid it.
What Is a Blue Eye Bracelet?
Blue Eye bracelets also known as ‘Evil Eye’ Bracelets are good luck charms and talismans that protect their wearer against evil energy.
The evil eye is said to be a curse passed through a look or glare to harm the person on the receiving end of it.
To say it plainly it means that negative energy (jealousy, envy, harm) can be passed to you through something as simple as a look from someone with harmful intentions towards you.
The blue eye bracelet is worn to ward off these negative influences and attract good luck.
Visually, it features a design resembling an eye, often in shades of blue. The eye symbol is believed to have the power to reflect or absorb negative energy.
Blue is the most popular color for this type of bracelet as blue is often associated with protection. The evil eye can come in two different kinds of blue:
- Light Blue: Helps with overall protection and allows for the opening of your third eye. Which allows for different perspectives and the ability to absorb and learn new information;
- Dark Blue: Known for karmic protection, relaxation, meditation and allowing the flow of open and healthy communication.

7 Possible Side Effects of a Blue Eye Bracelet
As you could see, the blue eye bracelet is usually very safe to use. But, you need to understand its powers, culture and abilities.
Don’t buy it just because it looks cute with your clothes.
In the world of crystal and spirituality, it’s very important to accept and embrace the culture and history of each piece.
Also, remember that just your energy might just not match the energy of the blue eye bracelet. It if happens, don’t force the connection. There are many options available for you.
So, let’s now see 7 possible side effects of wearing a blue eye bracelet:
1) Bad Luck
There’s a chance that this powerful symbol may bring bad luck into your life. Why?
- You are not using the bracelet correctly;
- It is not meant for you;
- You are not cleansing it accurately or regularly.
Remember, it will only work if you truly believe in it and its abilities.
When working with anything that carries spiritual energy it is important to check and reflect on our own intentions and energy that we are pouring into these types of objects.
If you are sensitive to the high energy levels of the Blue Eye, then wearing it as a bracelet may lead to overstimulation and heightened awareness.
When a strong energy is interacting with our own it may make it more challenging for us to relax and fall asleep.
Also, it is usually suggested that those working with the evil eye take it off at night.
Our own mental association with its protection might trigger us to subconsciously feel vulnerable and anxious without it.
3) Energy Misalignment and Imbalance
The unique energy of the Blue Eye bracelet may not harmonize with or align with your own unique energy field
It can lead to the imbalance, under regulation or overstimulation of certain chakras
Also, if not cleansed regularly, it will keep absorbing negative energy and could lead to an imbalance in the wearer’s energy field.
Impacting also other channels for the energy to flow out to (this may also cause the bracelet to break).
For some individuals, heightened sensitivity to the energies associated with the Blue Eye Bracelet may potentially lead to physical or emotional discomfort.
Are you someone who houses a lot of negative energy within you or around you?
Your body interacting with the energy of the bracelets may need some time to adjust in order to avoid an overload.
5) Lack of Motivation
If you are feeling as though the Blue Eye bracelet is not fulfilling its purpose you may find yourself feeling demotivated and lost.
Depending on any spiritual symbol or energy for inspiration and motivation may unintentionally reduce your confidence and leave you questioning your faith.
It can result in a heavy reliance on external objects for spiritual connection and growth.
It’s important to rely on and believe in yourself and your power to work WITH these objects to better and increase your own spiritual abilities and capabilities.
6) Increased Paranoia
To buy an evil eye bracelet, you must be feeling that you are in need of protection.
Working with spiritual objects that carry high energy can come with psychological side effects.
If you strongly believe that you are a target of the evil eye glare and are in need of protection you may become hyper-aware and hyper-sensitive to any negative energies around you.
The symbol itself will protect you from negative energies.
But, through the law of attraction, you may be attracting that energy towards you and reinforcing its existence and attraction towards you.
7) Health Issues
It is believed to protect from illness and any health-related issues that may arise due to the effects and curse of the evil eye.
In some cultures, it is believed that wearing a Blue Eye bracelet can cause a string of health-related issues including:
- Loss of appetite;
- Vomiting ;
This could happen by the energy or vibration of the evil eye bracelet and its content interacting with and influencing our own energy.
If you feel that your bracelet is making you sick take it off and spend some time apart from it, cleansing it.
