Recently I have noticed some things about me that I don't know maybe you can classify as superstition, or maybe i'm just one hundred percent OCD. :D But I tend to do some really odd things that are hard to explain but it is all for this good luck or as some people call it good "Karma". One thing I do, is I always, always have to knock on wood. It is my anti irony charm i guess. When someone says to me, "not to worry, you'll do fine," instantly I knock on a piece of wood, i have to because I know if I don't there isn't that irony protection and I will end up screwing up.
Also pennies for some reason, when I see pennies on the ground, in order for me to pick them up, they have to be on heads, its like my signature side of the coin. If the penny is not on heads then it is not lucky and not for me. Also with pennies when I see that I have a few extra in my wallet, I will place them in random spots, but I always make sure they are on heads. I do this to bring myself luck, because I don't need this coin, then maybe someone else does, and if they do, i get the 'good karma." I know I probably sound nutters, but really I do this!
I also try as hard as I can to do as many good things as possible, because they also bring in that "good Karma'. I notice when I do these good things, I tend to get good things in return. Like I once held open a door for a complete stranger at the library, then a week later my hands were full of stuff and I couldn't get the door open to the laundromat, what do you know... the same lady opens the door for me! Coincidence... I think not! ;) But anyways I have also found that bad things bring not so nice things in return. Tis happens all the time when playing cards I will be winning then I start to brag, and then what do you know, I epicly lose the winning hand.
Yes, there is a point to this rambling babbling, what I was curious to know, is that am I the only one who does these things and seems completely off her rocker, or do other people do this to? Do you believe in karma, good, bad luck, or even what some people call, "energy" good and bad..... what is your thoughts on Karma and superstitions?
