Hello, dear @adsactly readers

<div class="text-justify">Although Albert Einsten said that God does not play dice with the universe, many people believe that our lives are ruled by luck. The theory that our destiny is written and that everything that happens to us is the product of chance has served as a consolation for those who try to find an explanation for the origin of our misfortunes. However, is there really a force greater than us that makes us succeed or fail in the things we do? Is there a star, good or bad, that accompanies us and makes things work or not for us? 

#

All over the world there is a widespread belief that people can have good and bad luck, and just as there are rituals and objects that attract good fortune, so there are things that cause us to have the opposite. For example, it is common for people to speak of Friday as a bad omen day, just like the number 13, and if these two elements come together, Friday the thirteenth, can be the ultimate day of misfortune. But in Venezuela, although we consider the 13th as a number that contains fatality, so much so that even people avoid naming it, it is not the same with Friday, which is considered a holiday and joy. In Venezuela the day that people can consider a bad omen is Tuesday, so much so that there is a saying that says: "Tuesday, don't get married, don't go ashore, don't leave your house.

Just as there is this belief with Tuesday and 13th, there are others that I would like to share with you and see if in other countries you have these same superstitions or others. Let's do a review:

In Venezuela there are many actions that can attract bad luck. It is not only looking at yourself in a broken mirror or that this one falls from your hands, which can mean many years of bad luck; it is also considered a bad omen that the salt falls, that you pass under a staircase or that a black cat passes in front of you in the morning. A woman can remain single, with no possibility of getting married, if a person who is sweeping sweeps her feet, even if it occurs to her to open an umbrella inside the house. The elders say it's bad to put your wallet on the floor because money is scarce and you can't get it back in the middle of the road, because "goat that is returned, is snorted". Strange thing, the belief that if you put your hands on your head while you sleep, you are calling the death of your mother or if your footwear falls with the sole up and you leave it that way, is because you are calling tragedy. The idea is to turn the shoe over immediately.

Just as there are "unlucky" actions, there are people who provoke it. In Venezuela, it is believed that if an old man falls in love with a young woman, he can spoil her or bring her bad luck. Some houses and even vehicles can be bad luck . For example, it is believed that if a person has sex inside the vehicle, he can misfortune  it. Also, if you wish a person success, it may just cause the opposite. On one occasion, the late President Hugo Chávez said he was a fan of a baseball team in Venezuela and after those words, the team failed to win any championships. All blamed the team's bad run on the dead former president. Although to be honest, Hugo Chávez is the culprit of the bad luck of the whole country.

But just as there are things that promote bad luck, there are things we can do to counteract evil and cancel out the negative. In the case of salt, people usually put salt over their shoulder, they can also use stones, amulets, talismans that neutralize bad luck, just the same, they can touch wood or close the fist and leave extended the index finger and little finger. Some people usually put on an upside-down garment, light incense and even make spells to ward off the bad. 

#

Once, many years ago, in a Venezuelan baseball campaign, the two teams with the most fans reached the final. I remember that in the first game of the final series, the fans threw a dead black cat onto the pitch. This dislocated the players who lost that first game in the end. After that, the losing team, in each game, made maneuvers to neutralize bad luck, from wearing the cap backwards, playing in the dirty uniform and even painting their faces. None of this worked! In the end, the headlines in the press said: "The black cat that was thrown in the first match could have done better.

Making this post I think, that at that moment nobody thought to say that the losing team, due to the superstitions, was mentalized that it was going to have bad luck and that it would lose the championship, and that for that reason it played badly. Because maybe that's what bad luck is: believing in some things and letting them work as mechanisms of inhibition and defeat. Sometimes it can be the thoughts we generate that make our life happy or unhappy and for that, only the thinker is responsible; and if so, we can say with all certainty that nothing and nobody can be guilty of our bad luck and unhappiness. Don't you think so?

@nancybriti, No one can explain the **Subject** of creation effectively but i want to say one thing and that is, there is an higher creations who created all these aspects.

For example, There is a developer who created an **Artificial Intelligence** so that developer is higher creation than the **Artificial Intelligence**. Let's see if we will going to see through the mystery in near future. Stay blessed.

I don't know if I can or should absolutely believe in good or bad luck, beyond gadgets and ominous signs. But as they say: I don't believe in witches, but they do fly...
I believe that the soul disposition -individual or collective- is fundamental. However, I think that there are circumstances that converge positively or negatively and make an event or situation happen happily or unhappily.
Greetings, @nancybriti.

Hello @nancybriti. I do not believe in bad luck or in "birds of ill omen" but as they say in my town "that fly flies !!"
Actually, today I laughed a lot with this publication. That if the salt falls, Hugo Chávez as an amulet of bad luck for the baseball team and for all Venezuelans and all the references that you mentioned of bad omen. I have met people who do not pronounce the number 13 but say: "twelve plus one! I have smiled again with your picaresque publication." Greetings @nancybriti

Great post, @nancibriti.
A very controversial topic, especially in places where superstitions are actually considered an integral part of their beliefs system.

>Hugo Chávez is the culprit of the bad luck of the whole country (Venezuela).

That much I do believe. There is plenty of empirical evidence.
I always found it stressful to incorporate superstitions to my set of beliefs. There is no way in hell we can remember so many details of what can or should be done to attack good luck or repell bad one.
It's just ridiculous.
The funny thing is that many cults (sort of) have emerged with pompous names and complicated iconography that try to hide the fundamentally supersticious nature of their philosophies.
Superstitions can be considered the ultimate expression of faith.
For me, nothing calls bad luck more strongly than the belief in bad luck.
Sports, especially baseball, thrives with superstitious practices. And it is in baseball precisely where we can prove how absurd those beliefs are. Pitchers, for instance avoid stepping on the line when they enter the field. They do not always have a good day on the mount, though. Fans have seen their teams lose once and againa, regardless of how strongly they pull their backwards caps on their heads. And so on and so forth.
