The first record of a kabbalah bracelet being worn was in the form of a red string by Zerach ben-Yhudah when he was born. The midwife who attended his birth wrapped a red string around his wrist in order to signify his birth order since twins were involved, but Zerach drew back his hand and, thusly, his twin brother Perezh was the firstborn. Amid all of this is the revelation that Zerach not only was the beneficiary of the exclusive rights of a firstborn son, but that he had forfeited those advantageous rights in an involuntary act of unselfishness. Hence, due to this early piece of kabbalah jewelry, and by default, his brother Perezh gained the privileges afforded by his status in the royal lineage of King David, as well as to the future Messiah.
Later in history, Rachav of Jericho was rescued from the annihilation of her city by tethering a red string in her window; her confidence in the words of the Jewish infiltrators coupled with her physical act of assertion led not only to her escape but also to her coming to be the mother of Boaz, as well as the mother-in-law of Ruth, positioning her in the lineage of Perezh and King David. Still later, in the land of Shir Hashirim, Solomon's wife (also in the line of Davidic) is rumored to have had lips like a crimson strand. By employing the use of remezh, a Kabbalistic interpretative technique, these three illustrations suggest that the red string represents a distinctive covenant with the God of David, and compliance to the belief of kingdom, represented in both the current age and the impending Messianic Age.
In another direction, dependent on the nature and design of the Kabbalistic or jewish jewelry one chooses to wear, one is likely to acquire a number of spiritual enhancements such as, protection, good fortune luck, prosperity, health and well-being, and more. When selecting a talisman, whether a necklace, bracelet or ring, be certain to research and learn as much as possible in order to choose the appropriate item that best suits your individual needs and circumstances.
In light of its rich, unique and often mystifying legacy, the kabbalah red string deserves particular note. In the modern view, a kabbalah red bracelet, also referred to as the evil eye bracelet, is indicative of primarily, the desire to be recognized as a Kabbalist, and subsequently, the anticipation of protection from negative influences such as the evil eye. Elucidating these incentives is both comparatively accurate and undeniably lacking.
People who choose to wear a kabbalah red string indicate an enduring commitment to God as He is discovered by oneself, rather than a fleeting attachment to a superficial concept such as beauty or material aesthetics.
From a contemporary standpoint, the traditional meaning of this covenant has often been restricted solely to protection from the evil eye. Certainly, the unassuming kabbalah bracelet does deflect the envy from both oneself and from others. However, its more profound attributes lay in its ability to repel negativity are recognized as a means by which to experience God through proclaiming this covenant.
