The History of Superstitions
Superstitions can be found all over the world, in all countries, and beginning long ago. Some superstitions can be tied to biblical times, such as spilling salt and Friday the 13th. Some superstitions can be linked back to ancient Egyptian times, like opening an umbrella indoors and walking under a ladder. The ancient Greeks even introduced superstitions that pertained to hanging a horseshoe and breaking a mirror. There are many superstitions that exist although their date of existence is unknown. Because they are really just superstitions, it is difficult to find exact origins for most of them.
The main thing that is known is that superstitions have been around for a very long time and will continue to do so. There are even new ones being made up lately because there is a new generation.
Most Popular Superstitions
Because superstitions have originated from all over the world and within different periods of time, there is such a wide variety of them that currently exist. In the end, all it took was one person to say that one particular thing was either bad or good luck. Then it spread like a rumor. Some of the most popular superstitions are:
- Salt over shoulder after spilling it or knocking it over.
- Walking under a ladder is bad luck.
- Friday the 13th, black cats, and breaking a mirror are all bad luck.
- Four-leaf clovers, a rabbit's foot, and picking up heads only pennies are all good luck.
Some superstitions can actually be found true.
Five Superstitions That Are Actually True
Many superstitions have to do with luck, like salt for good luck or a black cat for bad luck. Out of all of the known superstitions, there are five superstitions that are actually true. The meaning of these particular superstitions will actually come true and is a part of reality. After reading this, take notice of it in daily life and as weeks go by.
1. The Moon Has Special Powers!
For many centuries, the moon has been believed to contain special powers. The moon has been worshipped by many believers. The moon has the main purpose of gravity for Earth and also regulating life. The moon also is said to contain energy that can be fully released and absorbed during a full moon and a new moon. Zodiac signs follow the moon and some signs are even ruled by the moon. So the next time it is a full moon or a new moon (when the moon is all dark because the sun is shining on the opposite side), pay attention to the environment and people around as there will be a slight difference.
2. Itchy Palms = $$
An itchy palm could be more than just dry skin. Itchy palm is a superstition that has been said to involve either losing or gaining money. Pay attention to which palm is itching because it makes a difference. Also the reaction makes a difference as well.
- Left palm means that money is coming in.
- Right palm means that money is going out.
- Scratching itchy palms on wood will guarantee good luck.
3. Big Events Happen in 3's
Ever notice that big events always involve more than one? Big events that involve life and death are the most common. There is never a case of just one big event happening. A month or two later, possibly even weeks, the same event will happen to another person. Then another week or two, possibly even days, will pass with the same event happening to another person, and again for a total of three. The facts and details about the event will differ, but the main fact will be a consistent denominator. Some of the most popular examples of 3's are:
- Bad Luck
4. Ringing Ears Mean Someone is Thinking or Talking About You!
Ever been minding your own business and one ear starts ringing? Not like something is wrong medically, but a slight ringing in one ear for a short period of time then it stops. This sometimes can happen multiple times in one day. It has been said that it represents a person either thinking about you or talking about you. This can be a type of telepathy that receives energy about us. It has been said that :
- The left ear is positive thoughts.
- The right ear is gossip and a warning.
*If there is a constant ringing in the ears, regardless of which one, it could be a serious medical condition.
5. "Company Is Coming" When Silverware Is Dropped.
- The fork represents feminine energy.
- The spoon represents masculine energy.
- The knife represents a couple.
This could mean a visit or even a simple knock at the door. Package and food delivery also count as company coming after silverware is dropped. This is especially true for restaurants, where dropping silverware is constant and routine.
