I have a bracelet given to be a former lover of mine, she told me its make up from snake fossils. Its pretty cute and colorful too, for some weird reason when i have the bracelet with me its as if im so lucky all the time. When i finally realized that im lucky wearing something like that then i lost it. Its as if it hid itself away from me. Now i dont wear anything like that anymore and i just rely on my own abilities and not with luck anymore

...Hi there setsuna26, Very interesting. So it seems like you are saying that you may have chased your physical good luck charm away. "o) We are able as you are doing, to draw positive things into our lives by using our positive instincts. Look for good things to happen as you are doing, they will find you. Believing strong enough makes positive things happen, in my opinion. Thanks for sharing with us, take good care.

Yeah i will find lots of good things in life. Using my positive way of thinking im pretty sure theres just so much more instore for me and for just about everybody.Its just a matter of how we see life and we should enjoy every bit of our time as long as we are living.Luck is just a part of life living a good and honest life if much important than just waiting for luck to happen. Thanks for reading my comment too and have a good day

....Hi there tigeraunt, Hope your weekend went well for you. Mine was so, so, some of my favotite shows come on Sunday night, starting with Celebrity Apprentice. Pearls in my opinion, are one of the nicest and classiest pieces of jewelry made. They add a touch of class as well, to any outfit you are wearing. I tend to feel that we project the positive energy into the object that we feel brings us good luck, and then that positive energy rebounds and comes back to us with positive results. I think that is your picture on your avatar and if so, you can tell from your smile that you have a lot of positive energy within. Thanks so much for sharing, take good care.

I used to wear rings with my birthstone.I was told that it would bring me luck.Similarly i wore a ring with nine stones navaratna .This was also to bring me luck.But i found everything is within me i.e if i work hard i get success and confidence.So i have stopped using all these lucky charms.Instead i start the day with exercise to keep me fit and later i pray to God and go and face the world.I found harder you work the more lucky you get.

...Hi there picjim, You certainly put your finger on the answer. It starts with us, positive thinking, positive actions should give us very positive results. As I mentioned before, the projection of our feelings on to objects may give us some positive outcomes, but it is from within ourselves that the energy has to come. Believing is the whole thing in my opinion, faith helps you to achieve. Thanks for your reply, take care.

...Hi there mimiang, Prayer is the answer to many, many things. Even if you are not asking for something as we humans are prone to do, more often than not. Praying is always a good thing to do, anytime. there have been many instances here I was in a situation where I needed help, and it was not a formal prayer, I just called on the name of my Savior and I was helped out of the situation, near auto accidents and such. So prayer is always good. Thanks for your reponse, take it easy. Question for you, how did you receive a friend request from me, when I don't remember posting the request? I rarely request friends, that's why I noticed it. Please let me know if you would. Thank you. his was puzzeling to me

hi artistry, well i want to tell you that i dont believe in such things. nothing can bring goodluck except your hard work and nothing can bring bad luck except your laziness or bad deeds. i never keep anything that people say that it will bring good luck or such sort of things. everything depends on our deeds.

...Hi there rahulchawla, Welcome to the ranch, enjoy yourself. Well, everyone is entitled to their various thoughts. I do agree that by working hard, as you say, we will enjoy the fruits of our labor. I think more so than the object that one might think will, or is bringing them good luck, is the projection that the individual puts on that object which brings the positive things, that may come into their lives. Belief is the essential ingredient. I think I once read a true story about a doctor and his wife, who went to see a play and the wife developed a very bad headache and wanted to leave. The doctor gave her something in the dark and told her to put it under her tongue and leave it there, because he wanted to stay. She did. The headache went away. After the play was over and they were leaving, she took the object out of her mouth, it was a button from his shirt. So your mind can help to generate positive things. Belief is the key, not always objects. Thanks for your response, take good care.

hello artistry,i have never carried any talisman or good luck charm in my life but i am at present wearing a small copper medallion with an engraving of a saint around my neck. This is not a good luck charm but it was given to me by a saintly person who said that it will protect me from evil forces.Out of respect for him i am wearing it. Some years back i had been given a bangle made up of 5 metals which again had been given by another saint. I wore it for some time but discarded it as i felt uncomfortable wearing it. I haven`t thrown it away but have kept it safely somewhere. Besides people used to ask me who gave it so that was another reason for me not to wear it.

...Hi there veejay, Hope you are doing alright. We are able, I believe to bring positive things into our lives by thinking with and being of a positive mind. There are times that I will be in need of something and, I kid you not it will come to me from somewhere. I remember a long time ago, I had a dress that had a white collar and cuffs and they had gotten discolored over time, the dress was a multi-colored red, white and black silk type material, very different, not easy to match. I did not want to replace the collar and cuffs with white, so I just let the dress hang in the closet. I think I bought the dress in Washington, D. C., as I traveled a lot back then on my job. I was with my niece in a material store in Philadelphia, looking for prom dress material, walking down the aisle, there was the same material that my dress was made of. I was amazed, I purchased the yardage, recuffed and collared my dress and wore it again. Unreal that was to me. If the pieces you have, give you a good feeling then fine, if not, it is not helpful to you to wear them. I would feel the same way. Thanks for your response, take good care.

...Hi chiyosan, What you carry with you has two meaning, a spiritual one and a practical one, which gives you a feeling of protection and being cared for by your good angels so to speak. I don't have anything that I carry with me externally, but I inherited my grandmom's green eyes, and I have always felt that they were a special gift to me. We all benefit from something which gives us some sense of security as well. Thank you very much for sharing and take care.
