Pandora's Jar Paranormal
Case Files: Il Malocchio

Even in modern day Los Angeles, an evil eye can be bad for business.
By Amy Beauchamp
To live in Los Angeles, is to understand that this entire county is in love with food. Not just the food one makes at home, but a sincere love of restaurant food. Also still in fashion is the evil eye curse.
“It wasn't too long after business owners noticed this new daily pattern, that actual businesses began to close around them. Some might have closed for other reasons, yet for others...a high level suspicion of Il Malocchio was thought to be the main instigator..”
With the Evil Eye still heavily integrated into several cultures (Latin America, Italy, Greece), I tend to run into a higher concentration of these types of cases here in the Los Angeles area.
Sometimes cases require me to travel, and other times the solution is just a few phone calls away.
I received a call from an Italian restaurant owner in Los Angeles distraught at the declining number of patrons pushing the business quickly towards closure...seemingly in a short amount of time from big restaurant opening. The client had already debunked practical reasons, and was left with a glaring possibility..a little old-world magic. A fellow restaurant owner became known by several business owners in the area that he preferred to not have so much competition. On a daily basis he would make the rounds to several businesses and spend his time briefly staring into windows in the most unsettling and awkward way, then continued along his walk.
It wasn't too long after business owners noticed this new daily pattern, that actual businesses began to close. Some might have closed for other reasons, yet for others...a high level suspicion of Il Malocchio was thought to be the main instigator...due to the closed restaurants being of a similar type to this gentleman's own restaurant, and his constant walks each day looking and staring creepily into each restaurant.
I didn't have much time..every day was putting a bigger dent into losing business for my distraught client. After a lengthy intake interview, I recommended some initial strategies based up on the client's spiritual faith, in this case Catholicism. All activity appeared to be centralized to the restaurant itself, nothing at home or impacting the restaurant owners beyond the declining patronage. Land interference and hauntings were also able to be ruled out.
In this particular type of situation, the path forward to test was the reclaiming of spiritual space by the client. What this looked like was bringing sacred religious objects into the space, hanging evil eye objects within the Italian tradition in visible places in the restaurant the frequent saying of Catholic prayers..and an incredible collaboration. My recommendation was to secure holy water to help cleanse the business space. The client, already intuitive and spiritual herself, went one step further and literally washed the walls, windows and doors with holy water. She noticed immediately upon implementing all of the strategies above plus washing the walls - that more patrons began to return. The days she did not wash the walls with holy water, the overall number of patrons declined.
Upon this realization by the client, she indicated she was satisfied for the present time being, and I shared that I would be on standby if anything additional needed to be done with paranormal dismantling (to the extent possible). To this day I have not heard back from her, and this is good news so far. No call, means no elevated need. As with all my cases, they all become a part of me, so even though I must move on to the next client I will perpetually be on paranormal standby. The most important part, is that I must allow the client their own autonomy. If they feel complete with my involvement, I must step back and give them space to continue forward as they desire. Ultimately their journey is up to them.
