It depends on your belief and the belief of the people who resides in that town or village. Country to country the beliefs vary. Any thing (action, thing, day, incident) which is believed in a country as good or good omen is believed as bad or bad omen in another country. Even in the same country the beliefs may differ village to village and town to town. When too many people believe on certain things the spirits act in the same way they believe and cause incidents and accidents. If a man of positive belief happen to live in the midst of people of negative beliefs he cannot win because of the majority of the negative forces. There may be some exceptional cases but I don't think that it's possible in everyone's life.
Human beings are ruled by spirits. Spirits possess people according to the mental state of the human beings. This is an all time phenomena occurring in all humans. Human beings are always under the influence of spirits. Often thinking and talking about bad subjects or bad imaginations even for fun can take serious turns on one who think and talk. A human being during his/her lifetime is living with man spirits which have joined one by one since birth. These spirits determine the destiny of the human beings from their daily activities, talks and thoughts too.
Spirits are separate elements. A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. A human being during his/her lifetime is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. After death all spirits which accompanied a person quit and go to different places searching new bodies. No one lives in any form after death. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games.
