Garlic is also used as a medicine to prevent colds, cure illness and get relief from toothaches.

Touch Wood

Read to me :

It is universally known that once you say something bad, it is compulsory to "touch wood".

This idea of touch wood to remove bad luck starts from prehistoric times when people believe that gods reside in trees. At that time, touching on the wood is to acknowledge the god in the tree and ask for blessing.

There is another idea that demons are around us. These demons will cancel out any good fortune. If we accidentally speak out our fortune, the best thing is to knock on wood to get the attention of good spirits. These good spirits will protect our good luck from being destroyed by the demons.

If you want to touch wood, try knocking on the wood three times. Evil spirits can’t cope with the power of number 3.

Is Money Evil?

Read to me :


Do you think money is evil? Some people says that money is the root cause of all evil. Do you agree?

Money can be a good or bad influence according to the character of the person who possesses the money. Money itself has no personality. It depends on how the owner of the money uses it. Money can be used to do meaningful works like building orphanage, hospitals and schools. Money can also be used to kill people. In the past, many kings had used money for construction as well as destruction of cities.

The Bible says "For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil." It is the love (or greed) for money that cause people to do evil things to get money. In almost all religions,  great amount of money is always bestowed on its faithful followers . How can God bestow money onto its followers if it is evil.

Don’t think that money is evil. Don’t hate money. Always think of money like other possessions you have, like a house, car or even a pc. If you hate money or think that money is evil, you will resist getting a lot of money or even try to get rid of money as soon as you have money.

Why not start thinking money as your good friend, who will help you to achieve your dreams today?

How To Kick Start Your Day?

March 10th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

Everyday is a new day. New things are happening everyday. The people you see everyday is different from yesterday : physically, emotionally or spiritually.

People used to blame their bad day by saying "Waking up on the wrong side of the bed". But to many people, both the left or right side of the bed seems be both wrong if it is a working day. It is the thinking that counts.

I used to start my day in a lousy way. If it is a working day, I would wake up and say "Oh God, not another lousy day!" This is exactly what happen to that day. People come into my life everyday to make me lousy and I always wonder why my life is like this.

How to power start your morning?

There is a better way to start your day:

  • Waking Up : When you are first awake, be thankful of the wonderful things that have happen to you. Forget about those yesterday events that makes you feel bad. Be thankful you are still healthy, able to see, smell, talk and taste. Be thankful you have an income at the end of the month. Be thankful of the good night sleep. Be thankful of your possessions : car, house, money and family. Affirm that you are expecting more good things to come into your life today.
  • Intention : While you brush your teeth, have an intention for the day. Everyday we go about our routine tasks like a zombie. Make today a different day. Have a purpose for today. You will feel different. May be just for today, you will make it a point to stay happy no matter what happens. May be just for today, you will make an intention to be with your family 5 minutes more. Make a intention today.
  • Feel positive : Before you leave your house, think and feel positive. Don’t  think about work. Don’t complain about anything. Don’t nag at your kids or spouse. Make your breakfast with your family a happy one. Feel good when you leave the house.

At the beginning of each year, you would do something auspicious such as getting new furnitures, new clothing, new decoration; in hope that your new year would be a great one.

In the same manner, making your morning a happy one and getting out of the house in a good mood would bring you the right mind to attract good things into your life for the rest of the day.

Umbrella

March 6th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

It is commonly known that opening up an umbrella in the house will bring bad luck.

One reason is that opening an umbrella indoors when it is sunny outside, will bring rain. If such belief is true, I will recommended to have an opened umbrella in every household during a drought.

Another reason for the bad luck is that opening an umbrella indoors will offend the household gods. The household gods will interpret the action as their protection against the elements is not enough.

However, in some countries like India, umbrella is considered as an lucky item to be brought around, even on a sunny day.

In Buddhism, an umbrella is also venerated as one of the eight glorious emblems of the Buddha.
