    Sometimes I'm Superstitious

    Not always.  I consider black cats to be lucky, and I'll walk under ladders, but I always toss a bit of salt over my shoulder when I spill some. Once I read that gypsy folklore claims it's unlucky to sweep dirt out the door, because you also sweep away the household luck...

    I have a question, I'm not superstitious

    but I find it interesting. Can anyone tell me what it means if your left ear is burning, for the last couple of days my ear has been off and on burning sometimes to the point that you touch it and it is hot. It's driving me crazy, I've also noticed my ears have become real...

    Some Things I Can't Do

    Truthfully, I believe in the black cat, broken mirror, and walking under ladder superstitions.  I mean, if I see any of them, I do my best to avoid them.  I won't touch mirrors or windows and stay away from the areas with ladders in places like Home Depot.  If there's a black...

    Slightly Superstitious

    As long as I can remember I have been slightly superstitious. I always always always hold my breath and turn off my radio when I drive by a cemetery, I can't walk on a crack, and I have to open a window after somebody dies at my work (CNA at a nursing home)

    "Hats on the Bed" There

    once was a man who let superstition guide him. All of his days were spent headed not towards anything that could lead to good fortune, but rather away from anything that could bring bad luck. Black cats crossing, open umbrellas indoors, 13's wild, ladders on walkways, punched...

    I believe eveything in the Universe has a

    pattern and eveything unrelated is related if you relate it in your mind or someone else has tied it as in Carl Jungs Archetyoes.

    Although I am sufficiently educated not to be

    superstitious, although I am otherwise a logical, skeptical, rational person, I am still superstitious.

    Well a little... You see in the uk we can be

    superstitious about magpies, there is a rhyme that accompanies it... When going through a particularly bad time in my life I just could not cope with seeing a single magpie (one for sorrow, two for joy). I would almost crash the car, I would become so distracted and desperate...

    To Be Or Not to Be Superstitious

     What I like in superstition is 'super' . I like the idea that things are more than what they seem to be.  I can hardly  separate aesthetism from superstition. If you somewhat believe in beauty you are superstitious. You believe. That something is good. And to me such...

    Say 'no' to Crying

    Crying brings bad luck. I used to fight against my tears from flowing out or at least reducing the volume of tears being produced during the process. Sounds weird though.

    I Was Not Superstitious...until One Day I Got A Job Far From Home.
