I am superstitious, to a certain extent……a reasonable extent, I like to believe.
Back when I saw this owl, I thought to myself, “someone is going to die.”
Native Americans believe an owl either seen or heard means a person is going to die soon.
Sure enough, my friend B. suddenly passed away 1 week later.
Is this owl hanging around and B. dying connected? Im not 100% sure. Actually, I am not 100% sure about anything.
But, I do not believe in coincidences. I believe everything happens for a reason and all happenings are connected.
The Owl came to me, I did not seek him out….
I have superstitions I believe in. Most are Native American oriented. Some are complicated and too hard to explain.
Here’s a list of some simple superstitions I believe in:
Sleep facing East
Surrounding my house with salt (wards off evil)
Hearing a crowing rooster at night means something bad is going to happen
Seeing an owl during daylight means a death is near (or hearing hooting near my home or someone elses home)
Seeing 1 crow means sorrow,2 crows mean joy, 3 crows a wedding, 4 crows a boy, 5 crows means silver, 6 crows mean gold, 7 crows means a story thats never been told
When borrowing someone’s pocketknife, hand it back how it was presented to you. If the blade was open, hand it back that way
Standing inside a circle will keep away evil spirits
It is bad to walk across someone’s grave
Cedar trees near my home are good luck
Houseplants give off positive energy
Pregnant women should avoid funerals and being around dead people
