If you are freaking about today’s date, Friday the 13th, I want to you take a breath and keep reading!
I will be the first to admit, I have been captivated by several superstitions myself, but Friday the 13th being a day of “bad luck” isn’t one of them. However, I have already been reminded, several times today to “be careful”, so I figured it would be best to look at why so many people are wishing the day away instead of allowing themselves to enjoy!
Many of us cling to superstition about one thing or another. I still cringe when someone splits a pole with me, and you will find me in complete confusion when a person places a purse on the floor. I’m sure there are a few more stored in my field of consciousness, but I’m more interested in WHY we put so much power into these beliefs.
Before we go any further, and since I have shared some of my superstitions with you, please share which superstitions you have accepted as truth and why, in the comments below (then come back up here to keep reading).
Of course with my field of interest (reiki, chakras and intuition), I do believe that these superstitions are nothing more than energies, which we heighten and actualize because of the energy we feed into them:
When we obsess over these types of energies, we give up our own power, feeding into the superstition cycle. But why do we do this? For one, when someone tells us something with such conviction, we either believe it OR we begin to doubt our own knowing (on some level). You may start to think - MAYBE it’s possible, I don’t want to risk falling victim to “bad luck”. And that’s all it takes…there goes your energy, you’ve been sucked into the superstition vortex. And what do you do with this information? You pass it on to save the fate of people you care about, right?!
Then there are the superstitions that have been passed down in our families, so naturally we fall for it; hook, line and sinker (whatever that means). Mom, dad, grandma – someone said this "thing" was true, and so it must be! Right? And then, of course, we feel bonded by this belief, that this "thing" is truth! Or maybe it's just nice to have the FAMILY or TRIBE stand firm in…something (my mother is alone with the black cats story)!
Getting back to the day at hand, let’s examine Friday, March, 13, 2015
In the system of numerology, today’s date, 03/13/2015 = 6, which is a nurturing vibration. Now if your issue is ONLY with the number 13, have no fear! The number 13 is representative of the number 4 in the system of numerology, and four is all about support! So far, this day doesn’t sound too bad at all.
If you are still not convinced, you may suffer from triskaidekaphobia, and my efforts to help you enjoy the day may be lost.
Now let’s look at the meaning of Friday. With some research this morning, it seems the day points back to the Goddess Venus in several interpretations, but I recommend CLICKING HERE to see what this person found out through their research.
So do you still care about the origin of the Friday the 13th superstition? CLICK HERE for more information (it’s too much to write about in this already lengthy blog).
The truth of the matter is that you have choice. You can add energy into your fear of superstition, which may cause you to miss out on some great opportunities, or you can choose to accept that YOU are creating your reality through your thoughts. What do you think about that?
I’m satisfied with learning some new information today about Friday the 13th, and with that, I will leave you with your own choice: How will you experience THIS day for yourself? Like every other day, you have the opportunity and choice to LIVE, fully, and enjoy the experience!
With love and gratitude, remember to ALWAYS journey in LOVE!
