Omens and superstitions about watches

For a moment, imagine a very eerie (or funny) picture. In the morning before leaving the house suddenly you inadvertently broke the mirror, it fell and shattered into small pieces, and in one of them, you see your reflection. "Do not worry - you think - it's just a superstition." Then, coming out of the house, you see a black cat, which wants to sneak past your feet. As you may try not to attract the attention of animal, black cat still managed to cross your path. But this could still be put up, if suddenly you have met a woman with empty buckets walking, as if nothing had happened! But that's not all: when you look at the display of your mobile, then to the great horror realized that today is the Friday the 13th, when all the ghouls, witches, poltergeists, werewolves, vampires and such scum go for a walk! "Everything is clear - you think - I so unlucky, because yesterday I was rubbish at night.”
This, putting it mildly, a bad start of the day can knock out anyone, even the person with the most stable psyche. Do you also think so? Or you do not believe in omens?

By appearances, the prejudices and superstitions can be treated differently. You can believe, but you cannot believe. But so happened historically that people from primitive times, pay attention to different signs, supposedly sent by someone over, visions and signs. The cause of superstition in ancient times lies in the ignorance of the person. The level of development of the ancient culture and ancient civilization did not allow people to find logical explanations for something unusual, and people explain it all by the signs. What else can I say, and today people do not stop to write new signs downright from scratch. For example, the recent development has been widely believed that you should not leave empty bottles on the table - they say that the money will not be. Let me ask, how many empty bottles left on their office desks bankers before the economic crisis, thundered recently? No matter how silly various signs may seem, we still continue to believe in them. We even do not mind the fact that these beliefs are sometimes run counter to the usual understanding of things, and logical explanations of phenomena. Such is the person that if she or he does not understand something or do not want to understand, he or she elevates it to the level of a "miracle"!

Of course, for hours and hours we can parse any omen, analyze and compare the data with the real world. In the end, we will find a well-founded explanation. But on the other hand, is it worth it and if we can achieve a positive result with a simple denial? And what do we know about the world? For the great world, we - like ants, which swarm in their anthill and carefully extract themselves and their families eat. Forgive me for such a bold comparison. I want to say that any folk wisdom, any signs or superstition can be used in advantage. Only need a strongly belief, and I prefer to believe in the good that advise you.

People began to think the signs for a long time ago, so to date, these "signs" have accumulated a huge set. If you raise all the "folk" data, we can see that almost every natural phenomenon, every human act, every living being or inanimate object on the planet connected with any legend or omen. The total stack, of course, cannot be without watches. It cannot be other way.

Watch is a part of our life

Since then, as the man thought of creating the first watches, this loud and important creation has become the subject of various beliefs, rituals, and even cults. Signs of watches appeared an incredibly long time ago, and some of them continue to exist to this day. Watch, be it solar, pocket or wrist, carried a certain secret, apparently, a man managed to curb the time to submit to his authority. But there it was! Omens and superstitions about the watch trace their history back to ancient times, and today, many of them just yet more entrenched in the consciousness of society. Watches are around us: wall clocks decorate our living rooms; alarm clocks help not oversleep in the morning, wrist watches always let us to be informed of the current time. Do not forget also about the clocks on mobile phones, computers, microwave ovens, etc. It seems that the famous Griboyedov phrase – “Happiness takes no account of time” - has long since lost its relevance because in today's world without a watch person simply cannot do anything.

It is because the watches are so important and indispensable in the modern world, they are given special importance, and signs associated with the clocks and watches do not lose their power. Of course, there are some signs about watches, gone out of today’s life. For example, ancient people believed that the watches had a kind of magical power, and witches with a watch could deprive life of person, stopping the move of the instrument, as well as irreparable damage to health. On the other hand, the "light" magicians could extend life by watches!

Many people who call themselves "guides to the world of the dead", used watches, which helped them to communicate with the souls of the dead, and witches called representatives of evil spirits, which served them as assistants. This is creepy! I noticed that the signs and superstitions of a watch can be somewhat frightening – terrifying of black cat crossing your path. Generally, the signs associated with the watches point to the most important thing: time, death or life, while the poor animal was born black not on its own, just brings minor troubles. To overcome the difficulties, troubles and tribulations, we must be able to look in the face of fear. And we are going to do it - look at the most popular, sometimes reminiscent horror, sometimes soothing signs of watches.

To give a watch is a bad omen

Bad omen is to give watch - it is, shall we say, a permanent "classic" world time superstitions. Everyone knows that at any the occasion to give a person watch is not desirable. But why people do not give a watch? This sign has two main reasons. If you give a watch to a close friend or relative, this will inevitably lead to a quarrel or separation.
The second reason, why not give to watch is the belief that by doing so you reduce the life time, a measured for a man who intended gift to. For example, if you have been invited to the wedding, then, as the popular superstition says, it is not necessary to give the new married a watch, since by doing that you condemn a young family to constant quarrels and scandals. And it may end in divorce.
The question "give a clock" a superstitious answers negative, but you should consider whether or not the cause of a quarrel that took place after the presentation of the gift, are these poor clocks. Or the cause is in of something else: the differences, improper behavior, lack of care or attention to each other. As practice shows, buy a watch as a gift is a bad omen. But many people don’t put these superstitions in first place. For example, in business circles, business partners give each other a good watch, and it is considered a sign of respect. In addition, politicians and other prominent figures have repeatedly received such gifts.

The folk has a belief that you can give watch if you take a person instead of some nominal fee - for example, a small coin. This, we say, "antidote" against the effects has it an effective impact on the "bad" omen and one hundred percent "neutralize" it. That is, you do not get a watch as a gift, but as if you buy it.
Since I raised the topic "a sign to give watch to the wedding," I will say a few words about it. Here's an example of life: a famous Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage did not hesitate and gave his son a watch to the wedding. Today there are many such "wedding" variations of watches. And to make your gift memorable, you can present the newlyweds pair watch, which is sometimes called "wedding." These models are offered by many modern watch companies, "wedding" watches are differ in only sizes of cases, and their design is identical. For me, it is a very romantic gift!

Let me add a few words about "a sign to give a watch." Watch - it is quite personal, individual thing, it can transfer energy of its owner. So, sometimes watches are inherited. If a person being still alive gives you a watch, it has automatically become a powerful talisman for you, able to guard against failure and misery. However, in this case, a person should voluntarily give you his watch, and you shouldn’t ask him about it in any case, "the effect of the mascot" will not.
Folk omens and superstitions are surprisingly strong, so to convince people of something concerning signs is almost impossible. These beliefs are "sitting" deep within the consciousness and passed from one generation to another. If you are one of those people who believe that to give watch is a bad omen, you should not go against your beliefs. After all, you are free to buy a watch for yourself! But if you think that in this case you can easily avoid the "doom" or "wrath of fate", so you are sadly mistaken. Even when you choose a watch for yourself it is better to know a few "rules", ignoring of which, they can lead to tragic consequences. For example, it is believed that woman should never buy a watch with square (rectangular) form or the other models, the cases of which have sharp corners. Thus, a woman may be doomed to a hard life, she always have to perform a man's job and solve men's issues. Therefore, ladies, for yourself choose elegant, feminine watch of round or oval shape. If you'd prefer something more interesting, buy a watch of any other form, most importantly - no sharp edges.

The poor man who buys a round watch! Thus he risks being out of work in the future. If you, dear man, pursue failure, you feel a lack of money or you have to periodically break down an important business deals, then take a look, may be you wear a round watch on your wrist! Or stop sitting back and find a good job!
Now you know why to give a watch is a bad sign, but it is not worth to believe in everything so unconditionally. Do not invite into your life bad, and then bad cannot enter!

"Broken watch shows dead time"

These are the words of the famous Bulgarian prophet Vanga (1911 - 1996), who said: "The watch is not to repair – all the same that the disease is not treated." By the way, the words of this prophetess are confirmed as by folk signs so by views of some influential people. A sign of a stopped watch has been studied by many esoteric and parapsychologists, who concluded that a broken watch is a symbol of bad luck and misfortune. However, in this case, it often says about vintage watches or hand-made models. It is believed that a master watchmaker who made a watch with his hands, put in a watch a piece of his soul, and when the watch is broken, the soul of the master also dies. A watch begins to suffer, and throws its pain into the world. If a broken clock is not repaired for a long time, they become a kind of "astral vault" for the soul of a watchmaker. Is it necessary to say about the dangers which such a "vault" has for the house, where it is?

In addition, a sign of stopped watch has the following interpretation: the owner of broken watch is guided by "dead" or "stopped" time, so he has no way to move forward. That kind of time causes a person to stagnate in one place; it opposes human achievement to cherished goals. A sign of a stopped watch tells that the owner of the faulty device will not be able to advance his careers and will not be happy in the "affairs of the heart." But as you know, even from the desperate situation there is always a way out. So what to do if you become the owner of broken watch by chance? The solution is simple - you need to quickly fix it, and if the master says that the situation is hopeless and it is impossible to return the watch into life, remove the mechanism of the watch, wrap it in a patch of dark purple color and store in a dark box. Esoterics say that purple is the color of the dark moon, which absorbs all the negative vibes and does not allow them to enter the real world.

If a watch mechanism has been broken, but, for example, it is a bursting of the glass, it should be replaced immediately. It's easy. Some very superstitious people say that before wearing such a watch after the repair for the first time, you should read the "Our Father" and irrigate it with holy water, of course, within reason. Then the "sign of broken watch" will not work. If you are the owner of a watch (and the possession of any watch - it is a big responsibility, according to its importance), then please wind a mechanical watch regularly and monitor its condition, and in electronic and quartz models is enough to change the batteries time to time. Take care that "a sign of stopped watch" don’t affect negatively on you and your life. The exception is the personal watch of departed relative which is should be stopped decided and then to store next to the photo of the deceased. Losing a watch is not very good sign too. By the way, watch is included in the "top ten" of the most lost objects, and this loss, as folk says, could lead to failure in business. But on the other hand, how can inconsiderate person who cannot even watch for his or her personals, to be successful in anything?

On topic about "sign of stopped watch" can be found a lot of information, both from folk sources and from real life. The following information, as it says, is not for the faint of heart. It is believed that if the broken wall clock suddenly begins to beat or ring music, so in this family someone will surely die. What is the most interesting in this omen believe not only in our country but also in many other cultures around the world. Thus, in January 1946, in one of the families in far Australia a wall clock suddenly began beating that do not work for more than 20 years. Households liked this graceful antique clock that adorned the living room, so the owners did not want to liquidate it. But they had no idea that this piece of furniture could do a disservice to them. One winter evening, breaking exactly six times, the clock stopped, and a week later the head of the family died. Such a sad event the family experienced very hard, but they did not blame their wall clock in it until a year later, the fight repeated and passed away another member of the family. When a watch master viewed this wall clock, he found no reason of its so sudden "activity", but the rest members liquidate the clock just in case.

Of course, it isn’t worth to take all these folk omens on trust, because sore human mind can come up with everything, grieving the loss of loved one. In the end, by definition there are not the bad omens will - they are warnings of impending danger. Think positively and hope for the best.

The story is false; but in it lies!

So can anyone explains once and for all is it worth to believe in omens and superstitions about the watch and clocks or it is just a product of an overactive imagination of a person? If you ask my opinion, I believe that you should watch at the world easier, you don’t need to attach great importance to all the events and much less superstitious. Each person has its own life and its own destiny. But it can be viewed from a different angle, but it is impossible to distance ourselves from the superstitions and omens defacing centuries-old experience of our ancestors. As folk proverb says, "the story is false; but in it lies", so there is plenty to think about.
By the way, they say, you can learn your fate by the almighty clock. If you want to take a chance and look into the future, please follow the instruction: obligatorily find a mechanical (not quartz and electronic) watch and before bedtime turn the watch forward to the desired amount of time. It is worth considering that one hour is equal to one month. Putting the watch under the pillow, go to sleep, and a prophetic dream about the future is guaranteed. But in any case there is a catch, and here also - if you after waking up will not turn the watch hands back, scrolled time will be irretrievably lost! I really do not know whether this method works or not, but I fear, so I'm not going to experiment.

The story is false; but in it lies!
The story is false; but in it lies!

To the question "to believe or not to believe in folk signs of watches" I would say the popular proverb - without faith is no faith. That is, you cannot believe in half, you should to believe with all your heart. But believe in what - that's another matter. Let's tune in a positive way, with all heart believe in the best and by the great power of thought will force the river of fate to flow in the required direction. Then all the misery and misfortune will pass us by.
