I've got a lucky black cat Maneki Neko thing on my windowsill to ward off evil spirits and illness. So far I haven't had any run-ins with evil spirits but it has been doing a shabby job with the illness thing.
I have a Ganesha statue in my apartment as more of a symbolic thing than actual worship?
I have an Our Lady of Guadalupe candle. Like the Mexican kind, a big unscented candle in a glass. I'm not Catholic, I just like big cheap candles.
I knock on wood a lot. Just in case.
I have an excessive amount of deja vus and someone told me that means that you're on the right track. I read a book by that psychic that used to be on Montel and she thinks that deja vu is because you planned out your life prior to being born and those are the lil signs you to remind yourself that things are going how you planned and that it's what you planned out, everything is syncing up. When I have a deja vu it is down to the exact moment. Everything is familiar like it must have happened before. All my 5 senses, feelings, conversation, etc are all dead-on perfectly like they must have happened. It feels weird and surreal. I like those explanations despite the science explanation of things misfiring in your brain.
Using white lighters is supposed to be bad luck in stoner culture. I think this is because of the myths about Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, etc. dying with white lighters in their pockets.] And the fact that if you look at the bottom, you can tell you packed a bowl with the white color. And the fact that people are really paranoid sometimes when they're high.
I think there is luck. Being in the right place at the right time and such. I don't really believe in good luck charms that much. I think that it's not necessarily all about how great the cards you're dealt are, it's how you play them. True in life.
I think I will believe in it more strongly when I win the lottery.
