Superstitions Continuously Failing me

I am talking about superstitions like sneezing before beginning a work, good or bad day/time to do a work, etc. As a follower of Teachings of Sikhism, I decided not to believe in any superstitions as per the teachings of Sikhism. I got ahead and ignored them for many times(Remembering God at the same time), thinking that something bad happening after sneezing etc might be a coincidence, but coincidence happens once, twice, or maximum 4-5 times. i ignored upto 10-20 times but when these things keep happening even after that, now I am really worried that these things are really true.

Everytime these bad omens happen, I do remember Waheguru and take His Name, but I don't know why still superstitions fail me and show their effect, which I cannot ignore. Is it Because I am not a good person, or something else. Truely speaking, someone sneezed just before i started typing this question, leaving a doubt in my mind that i will recieve an convincing answer. Please someone help me to get out of this and prove me wrong.

Satshri Akal ji

I will first say quote from Guru granth Sahib ji

O simple man, Leave all your superstitions, And be in love with One. (Guru V, Gujri Rag)

  • Good and ill omens affect him, Who does not remember the lord. (Guru V, Asa Rag)*

The True Guru granteh the Nam of the Lord, Which cast away all the evil influences of the planets.(Guru V,AsaRag)

And you asked about superstitions, I donot know that they are true or not, but our guru says and guarantees that if you remember lord then superstitions donot exist for you.

Superstitions failing you? Yes, because you are looking at the world superstitiously. This is whole kaya of Akaal Purakh. There is Akaal in the black cat crossing your path, the crow that caws and what not. And Akaal brings you no harm or failure. Live in this world with Akaal at peace.
