DWQA QuestionsCategory: Limiting Beliefs“A rabbit’s foot will bring you luck.” Pappas writes: “Talismans and amulets are a time-honored way of fending off evil; consider the crosses and garlic that are supposed to keep vampires at bay. Rabbit feet as talismans may hark back to early Celtic tribes in Britain. They may also arise from hoodoo, a form of African American folk magic and superstition that blends Native American, European and African tradition.” Can Creator tell us how this superstition came about, and if there is an actual reality to it?

While having a presumed “lucky rabbit’s foot” is quite widespread in some areas of the world, there are many examples of talismans arising in cultures here, there, and everywhere. This is also an example of innate human wisdom there is a need for protection from things unseen, and in cultures where this is not addressed directly and specifically with tools that work, a do-it-yourself approach that creates a kind of superstition will fill the gap. Such notions will be comforting to the owner of such talismans, and this has a benefit in raising their vibration and give them confidence of personal safety. This is the basis of all such good luck charms because people know bad things can happen and there is an intuitive awareness of the darkness. This might be consciously denied or suppressed or simply not thought about, depending on the background and cultural influences from the way they were raised, but intuitively people will know “something may be out to get them” and will feel uneasy and seek ways to ensure stability and a safe harbor. A talisman becomes a portable protector in the mind of the holder and people will cling to this even though its effectiveness cannot be proven. So rather than the use of such objects being proof of humans being illogical and vulnerable to superstitious nonsense, it is actually a demonstration of intelligence and intuitive reach in knowing there is more in the world than what can be seen with the eye. This does not mean that obtaining a rabbit’s foot is the answer for evil, and that is the basic problem here, that superstition is not truly an answer for anything but a diagnostic indicator of a problem needing to be addressed. A rabbit’s foot will not help you outrun the darkness.
