The red string bracelet is most commonly associated with Kabbalah, however, this practice is an ancient one in religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity. The reasons are shrouded in mythological mist in many countries, yet the reasons are quite similar, and represents the desire to ward off negative energies. Red has been a color used throughout history and is a symbol of blood, of protection. It has had a long standing tradition in human history for many different occasions. It is defined more so by attachments that culture puts on them. In ancient times, the color red was painted on front doors and animals as a form of protection against the evil eye (a gaze or stare that is superstitiously believed to cause material harm). Ancient warriors used to paint their weapon in red for the same reason before entering battle.

It is an ancient tradition to wind a Red String seven times around the tomb of Rachel, the great Matriarch. Rachel, wife of Jacob, gave birth after many barren years to two sons, Joseph, and later Benjamin. During the birth of Benjamin, Rachel passed away, and was buried on the road between Jerusalem and Bethlehem in the Land of Israel. After the Red String is wound around the tomb, it is endowed with mystical powers. It is then cut into pieces and worn on the left wrist. The left hand is considered by Kabbalah to be the receiving side for the body and soul. By wearing The Red String on our left wrist, we can receive a vital connection to the protective energies surrounding the tomb of Rachel.

It also allows us to take Rachel's powerful protective energy with us and draw from it anytime.

Kabbalists believe that by seeking the Light of holy persons, such as Rachel, we can use their powerful influence to assist us. According to Kabbalah, Rachel represents the physical world in which we live. Her greatest desire is to protect and defend all of her children from evil. When we tie the Red String to our left wrist, while reciting the powerful Ben Porat Yosef Blessing, we seal her powerful protective energy within as it intercepts negative influences intended to cause us harm.
