Every season, when going through their wardrobe, Ukrainians often collect bags of old clothes. Many decide to donate these items to the poor. However, there are a number of folk beliefs that warn against such charitable deeds, suggesting that good deeds can inadvertently bring trouble.

Obozrevatel delves into the curious world of these folk signs, exploring why some people believe that it is not worth giving their clothes to the poor, and how to part with clothes more carefully, without directly referring to these beliefs.

The energetic connection between clothes and well-being

To understand the reason behind these folk signs, we must first recognize that there is an energetic connection between a person and the clothes they wear. According to this belief, when you give your clothes to someone who needs them, you are not just parting with an item, you are sharing a piece of your soul.

This shared energy can potentially have a negative impact on your future well-being. In the past, this deep spiritual connection to clothing has led to the practice of casting spells and curses on things, a dark tradition that is said to persist among black magic practitioners even today.

How to safely give clothes to those in need

However, the warnings of popular omens do not mean that you should throw away all your old clothes. Instead, consider these alternative practices to ensure that you pass on your belongings in a more conscious way to those less fortunate:

1. Washing and cleaning:

Before donating your clothes, make sure they are thoroughly washed. This simple act not only shows respect for the recipients, but also rids the items of your personal energy. Adding a sprinkle of holy water to the clothes can be seen as a symbolic purification ritual that breaks the energetic connection between you and the clothes.

2. Prayer and blessing:

Lighting a church candle and praying over your clothes can be a meaningful gesture. This act not only cleanses the clothes, but also sends positive intentions to the people who will receive them. It is a way to infuse the clothes with goodwill rather than negative energy.

3. Special attention to shoes:

In Ukrainian folklore, special attention is paid to the energy associated with shoes. It is believed that human energy flows through the heels. Therefore, when giving away your shoes, in addition to washing them thoroughly, consider sprinkling them with salt or putting it inside. This practice is believed to neutralize any residual energy.
