It is easy enough to dismiss the idea of bad luck as mere superstition, to write it off as simply a series of unpleasant coincidences, until it strikes you – and then you may find yourself wondering if there is anything to it.

Almost everyone has experienced a streak of bad luck, involving a series of unfortunate, seemingly unrelated events completely beyond their control.

It might start with an illness in the family, then your car is stolen, you take a tumble down your stairs, then you go to your mailbox and receive a letter telling you that your insurance is canceled despite the fact you over-paid! A series of events like these, these strikes of lightning out of a clear blue sky, can leave even the most materialistic optimist anxious and wondering if they somehow offended the gods.

Bes-Public-Domain

Bes, Egyptian dwarf god, sometimes described as demon, who protects from misfortune. His cult is said to have been wide-spread at one point in Egypt and he was the guardian of the Egyptian royal house.

The concept of bad luck is ancient and can be found in everyplace on earth. Spirits, special stones, herbs and a seemingly endless variety of talismans and procedures are designed to ward off or reverse bad luck and bring good luck.

Even people who are not especially superstitious knock on wood to prevent misfortune, throw salt of their shoulders, avoid black cats and don’t walk under ladders. It is a common notion that bad luck comes in threes, suggesting the idea of a bad luck streak. Gamblers are especially conscious of such streaks. When they’re “hot” or “on a roll,” they say Lady Luck is on their side. When they begin losing money, they call it a “streak of bad luck.”

In American Hoodoo, we describe bad luck as a being crossed, which is similar to the idea of being jinxed. It’s something that simply happens and is not necessarily caused by malefic witchcraft, rather it is simply an accumulation of unwholesome energy around a person or a place, which must be cleansed from time to time.

The Evil Eye (malocchio in Italian and mal de ojo in Spanish) is a nearly universal concept. The Evil Eye can cause a person to experience all kinds of bad luck, including illness, fever, listlessness, sadness and a host of other maladies of both a mundane and physical nature. It is commonly considered a malady of children, but the Evil Eye can be a danger for adults as well. A hateful, envious or resentful glance cast at you can emit a negative charge, which is the root cause of your ensuing misfortune.

What Can You Do About Bad Luck?

First of all, don’t internalize it or blame yourself because it is not your fault. Bad luck has nothing to do with such things as “wrong thoughts” as is taught by the popular “Law of Attraction” and other cultish power of positive thinking books, such as “The Secret.” Bad things do not happen to you because you’ve been a bad person or you’ve done something wrong to deserve it. Bad luck is not your fault, nor is it necessarily the fault of anyone else.

Bad luck is simply an unwholesome, adversarial energy harmonic that exists, which must be cleansed or reversed. For this you may use spiritually cleansing baths, house washes, talismans, spell procedures and enlist the help of powerful spirits. One of the best for warding off bad luck, the evil and and obtaining total protection from enemies is Santa Muerte.

There are exceptions, but most of the time, especially in the English-speaking world, bad luck is not caused by curses or someone intentionally using black magic against you, which is a more difficult matter to deal with. Unless you have an enemy who is a talented witch or black magician, chances are you, your home and your work place simply need a little cleansing.

People, pets, livestock, crops, cars, boats and kinds of places, including workplaces and homes, can become energetically contaminated. Some places are dirtier in terms of their adverse energy. Certain cities, especially large cities situated on waterways seem to be more energetically contaminated. Also, being around more people, also, means a strong possibility of coming in contact with more negative energy, which can contaminate us or our homes.

In such cases, you can either move, which is not usually an immediate option, or step up your cleansing, anti-bad luck charms and set up a powerful protection system for yourself.

So, is there really such a thing as bad luck or good luck?

The answer to this question is one you will ever know for sure is by making your own experiments with influencing fortune in your favor.

Types of Clairvoyance and How This Ability May Be Applied

Clairvoyance is a type of mediumship and psychic ability, which involves an extension of the normal range of visual perception. (For a list of other types of mediumship, please see the article, “Types of Psychic Mediums and How to Develop Your Mediumship Abilities.”

Clairvoyance is a generic term, employed to express various degrees and modes of visual perception, whereby a person is able to know facts and obtain certain knowledge by means other than the ordinary five sense ability range.

Clairvoyance manifests itself differently from person to person and in varying degrees of ability and wide range of experience. The character, quality and manifestation of clairvoyance depends upon a peculiar condition of the psychic’s nerves and brain.

An example of the range of ways in which clairvoyance can manifest can be illustrated by the psychometrist who in touching certain objects or being present in certain places can cause a variety of experiences. For example, he or she may receive visions of the past or of the future, which may be more or less clear. These visions may come in brief flashes, they may appear photographic and depict an instant in time or they may seem to unreel a series of past events in succession.

As another example, in experiments involving crystal ball gazing, people’s abilities may be characterized by flashes, sparks, clouds of different colors, symbols or the vision may be partly or entirely clear and lucid.

People with the ability to clairvoyantly detect the presence of spirits may experience this perception in a variety of different ways, sometimes transparent or shadowy and others very distinct and apparently physical. The experience of clairvoyance may or many not be accompanied by clairaudience or clairsentience, which means the psychic may not only see the spirits, but hear and feel them.

No two persons’ clairvoyance is precisely alike, moreover, each one has a personal idiosyncrasy that invariably determines his or her specialty, and, whatever that specialty may chance to be, should be encouraged, for in that he or she will excel and in no other.

Ways clairvoyance may be applied:

  • To see the past, present and future
  • Finding lost property and people
  • Mind reading
  • Spiritual counseling
  • Spirit detection
  • Spirit communication
  • Medical diagnosis, prescription of remedies and other treatments
  • Exorcism, to control spirits
  • Scientific exploration, invention and innovation
  • Exploration of this world and others
  • The development of art, music and literature

While certain applications of clairvoyant abilities are more familiar to us from popular culture, such as the detection of spirits, exorcism, the ability to know events in the lives of the people around us, to know their character and to see events that are likely to occur., there are other applications that are less known.

Less often considered is the the medical application of clairvoyance to determine the nature and cause of disease and to prescribe remedies or aid in the application of treatments. Through clairvoyance we can attain a clearer understanding of the natural world through the exploration of science. This exploration leads us to new inventions and innovations. By means of inspiration, clairvoyance helps writers, artists and composers to reach beyond their own natural abilities.

If you are interested in developing your own clairvoyance, choose a method of application that interests and steadily pursue its perfection. Carefully consider your own interests, your needs and desires, to determine exactly what kind of clairvoyant you want to become, then bend all your energies toward this end.
