Term: Breath

DEFINITION:
The breath has always been associated with the spirit, or life force. Many ancient words for “breath” also mean “spirit.” Examples include: the Hebrew ruach, Greek pneuma, and Latin spiritus. The concept of breathing on something for luck has also been carried on for thousands of years. Gamblers still blow on their cards for luck today.
