Lucky Charms and Amulets, Lucky Gods, Lucky Spirits

Unread post by lucky7clover » Sun Jun 07, 2009 5:09 pm

I have this small basket, about an inch in height and width with tiny figures of the 7 Japanese Lucky Gods inside (they're quite small). This is something I forgot that I had. This morning I noticed that one of the Gods fell out of the basket (which I kept inside a box)... so I put him back into the small basket. Today at work, I realized that I had so much luck! First of all, I was monitored (i work at a call center and our phone calls are listened to and we are graded on how we serviced the customer), and I ended up getting 105% because the customer was so thankful on how much I helped her. Secondly, I upselled three items today... and on a weekly basis, I normally get around 6 or 7. And then Thirdly, I got to go home a half an hour early. I felt super lucky.

I swear I saw something on Lucky Mojo site that mentioned the 7 Lucky Gods of Japan. I can't seem to find it now. The little figurines that I have are not even concencrated, so I was surprised that just by touching one, I obtained luck. So I'm definitely going to concencrate them now!

I don't know that much about then but I believe the laughing Buddha is/was one of them, Hoti if memory serves. Lucky Mojo has this : http://www.luckymojo.com/oil-japanese-lucky-7.html Hope that helps. And congratulations on all your luck, hope it keeps up.

Actually I ended up looking for information on the 7 Japanese Gods of Luck... and tried to figure out which one was the one that I touched and it was Hotei Buddha. Here's a list of them:

Ebisu - God of Fishermen, Good Luck, Commerce and Honest Labor
Daikokuten - God of Earth, Wealth, Prosperity, Farmers, Flood control and The Kitchen
Benten - Goddess of Music. Fine Arts, Eloquence and Literature
Hotei - God of Contentment and Happiness
Fukurokuju - God of Wisdom, Longevity, Verility and Fertility
Juroujin - God of Longevity
Bishamonten - God of Treasure, War, and Warriors

Ironically, the 7 Lucky Gods of Japan are not all from Japan. Ebisu is the only deity with Japanese origin. Three are from Hindu-Buddhist pantheon from India (Dikokuten, Benten and Bishamonten) and the other three are from the Chinese Taoist- Buddhist traditions (Hotei, Fukurokuju, and Jurojin). What I found funny was that Benten, in Hinduism is actually Sarasvati. Sarasvati loves literature and knowledge and she is said to guard libraries.

And I also found some information of the significance of the number 7 in Japan. Ancient Japan was founded around seven districts. In Japanese folklore, there are seven treasures and seven deities of good luck. Japanese Buddhists believe people are reincarnated only seven times, and seven weeks of mourning are prescribed following death.

Quite interesting, which sounds like it connects to Hoodoo is on the night of January 2nd, place a picture of the 7 deities aboard their "Treasure ship" or Takarabune underneath your pillow. And if you have a lucky dream that night, you will have luck for the entire year.

Lucky elephants need to have their trunks up. Should their trunks be pointing toward the door (to call in luck) or away from the door (so luck walks in with them)? I've heard both and would be interested to hear what people believe.

I have heard of the trunks up idea, but it is by no means consistent. Sri Ganesh, the Hindu Elephant God, who among other things does bring in luck, is featured in a variety of poses, usually with his trunk down. With that said, this is pretty off topic for our board so let's stick to Hoodoo, Lucky Mojo, and if you have specific question about amulets, charms, seals, papers, and jewelry we will be happy to assist!

Lucky Mojo has a web page discussing lucky elephants

The lucky elephant charm is a deliberate bit of cultural exoticism found in America and Europe. Historically linked to to the era …

So I didn't think it would be off topic ... Sorry

Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, is often pictured with elephants, usually with the trunk up. Lucky Mojo carries Lakshmi and Ganesh candles, oils, incense, sachet powders, and bath crystals, so I would say this topic is OK for this forum.

I was told by a Hindu to keep a statue of Ganesha facing the front door to draw in luck. That was specific to that tradition, so I don't know about lucky elephants in general. For me it is an extension of my ongoing devotional relationship with Sri Ganesha, and I have found it to be effective.

I was taught that you place the elephants facing to the inside of the house. So luck and wealth follows them in.

Hi was hoping someone can help with a charm or coin that will bring luck when I go fishing. I'm a fisherman and could use a good luck charm or coin. In a runt and need some help. Any ideas? Thanks for any advice

Although mojo bags originated with the making of hunting charms -- which tells you how long ago it started! -- most of the amulets available from Lucky Mojo are for love, money, and protection. You might not find anything that strikes you as a useful fishing charm, so you might want to make something like this:

Make a mojo bag with a lodestone and at least one fish-shaped charm. (Another charm on the outside of the bag is optional. On the one hand, it'll help you remember what it's for; on the other hand, it might tell people your business.) Dress it with Crown of Success.

Also, I believe that Devil's Shoestring has been used to paralyze fish by Native American tribes that built fish weirs, so you might want some of that in your bag. It's lucky and protective, too. Put a fishing lure in there, something bright and shiny or something designed for the species of fish that you most want to catch. And your hair, because that's an extension of yourself, and you want the fish to find you.

Dress it all with Attraction and Crown of Success. That's a modern fishing charm off the top of my head.

You'll find some more traditional work in this brief but informative thread: Best of luck,
