Many people believe that luck is best explained as the faith that people have in it . They expect good luck. And they carry a good luck charm or amulet like a lucky clover, or wear a good luck necklace or bracelet to remind them of their aims and intentions. In truth, luck is BELIEVING.

Whenever someone goes for an important appointment, we wish them the ‘best of luck’. Indeed, many believe that having good luck on their side is almost as important as trying hard. Everyone wishes to have a happy and successful life and, for that reason, a good luck wish from a friend or colleague is always appreciated.

Many people genuinely believe that if they carry a good luck charm, it will bring them good fortune and prosperity

Michael Jordan, the famous Chicago Bulls basketball star, spent his entire NBA career wearing his old University of North Carolina shorts under his team shorts – for good luck.

Can luck really influence the outcome of events? That question has captivated otherwise rational people for centuries—and challenged scientists to somehow prove whether lucky charms, special shirts or ritualistic behaviors hold special powers.They do. (Sometimes.) New research coming out in June suggests that a belief in good luck can affect performance.

The evil eye is a superstitious curse or legend believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when one is unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury, while others believe it to be a kind of supernatural force that casts or reflects a malevolent gaze back-upon those who wish harm upon others (especially innocents).

The idea expressed by the term causes many different cultures to pursue protective measures against it.

In Greece, the evil eye is cast away through the process of xematiasma (ξεμάτιασμα), whereby the “healer” silently recites a secret prayer passed over from an older relative of the opposite sex, usually a grandparent. Such prayers are revealed only under specific circumstances, as according to their customs those who reveal them indiscriminately lose their ability to cast off the evil eye.

There are several regional versions of the prayer in question, a common one being: “Holy Virgin, Our Lady, if [insert name of the victim] is suffering of the evil eye, release him/her of it.” Prayer has to be repeated three times. According to custom, if one is indeed afflicted with the evil eye, both victim and “healer” then start yawning profusely. The “healer” then performs the sign of the cross three times, and emits spitting-like sounds in the air three times. More info for evil eye symbolism.
