TGIF - Your Superstitions
Posted 03 March 2006 - 05:25 AM
I do associate a lot of good luck with the gold ring my mom gave me. It has two hairs from the elephants tail on it. I am kinda fanatically associating luck with this ring.
So, what is your's?

Hmm...let's see. For me, I get hung-up on the letter '3', lately. I've heard it has negative connotations, so I stay away from it.
One of mine also has to do with a ring. I wear my engagement rings (yes, I have two...long story) at all times. I absolutely cannot take them off for any reason. If I do, I feel I will break the good "love spell" I've got going with my fiance.
Oh, my mother taught me this one...whenever we talk on the phone, we absolutely must say 'I love you' at the end of our conversations because, if we don't, something bad could befall us. It's happened numerous times where we just forget to say "I love you" to eachother and we end up calling eachother back to say it.
Not your average superstitions, I suppose. But, superstitions, none-the-less.

I'm fanatical about spilling salt. If you spill the stuff.....better throw it over your shoulder to avoid bad luck.
I don't walk under ladders...same thing.
I say bless you when someone sneezes....coz when you sneeze you let evil into your soul unless you push it away with a bless you. (I even say 'bless me' when I neeze and I'm alone.)
If I mess coffee in the morning....I KNOW I'm going to have a bad day.
Always knock on wood if I say something good is in progress. Like sealing a bargain and not tempting fate.
And yes...I know I'm neurotic!

If your right palm itches, it is a sign of getting money.
Twitching eye means good luck
See a penny, pick it up; all day long you’ll have good luck.
If you make a wish while throwing a coin into a well or fountain, the wish will come true. ( I love wishing well's I think they're so romantic)
And my own sources of good luck are:
The number 9.
Thursday has always been my lucky day.
I have always had an angel keychain for every set of car key's I've ever owned, driving on the road now a day's can be so dangerous, I like to think there are angel's riding with me.
And lastly, shortly before my Mother passed away we purchased matching gold necklaces with crosses, we wore them everyday, when she passed I placed mine around her neck and her's around mine, I never remove it for any reason, I feel it is a form of her protecting me and a secret bond that keeps us united.

but I don't have a problem with black kitties crossing my path, cat's are to mystical (in my opinion) to be bad luck.

- dropping anything gives me a feeling that something will go wrong. Particulary paperclips and scissors. I upturned a basket of paperclips once and nearly had a heart attack with fear for what would happen. I think I broke up with a boyfriend shortly after. I used to collect all of the paperclips I found on the ground for good luck, but all I ended up with was hundreds of paperclips that I could drop by mistake. So I only use them when absolutely necessary.
- if something goes wrong while I'm preparing for my day, the magnitude of it shows how bad will be my day. For example, dropping the toast butter side down means a crappy day ahead, unless there's nothing sticking to it when I pick it up.
- I avoid people with certain names, because experience has taught me to. I no longer date Chris's, regardless of the spelling of the name. Ditto Larrys, Jons, Davids, Rons, and Peters. I don't work well with Andrews. Sue's and I don't mix.
The usual stuff, walking on cracks, under ladders, by black cats, doesn't phase me.

1. There are certain songs that if I hear unexpectedly on the radio or something that I'm not actively in control of, like playing a CD on my computer, bring me luck.
2. There is a belief that I grew up with that says whatever you are doing at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve is what you'll be doing for the entire year. Whatever works <g>
Of course, there's those misguided, mis-informed souls out there that say that my belief in the pararnormal and in the spirit world constitutes superstition on the grandest scale but I just smile and go on, knowing that their REFUSAL to believe is based on superstition
