Ooooooo ... it's Friday the 13th!! It's only 8:52 AM and already I've heard 3 references to Friday the 13th being bad luck...
Logically, why should a number, attached to a particular day, be 'bad luck'? It doesn't make sense, According to Wikipedia, the legends of Friday the 13 are numerous - maybe starting in the 1100's, but the real fascination with this date came about in the early 20th century. We've got centuries of collective consciousness to deal with. I also read that it used to be a good luck day, but the Catholic church, trying to get rid of all things pagan, promoted it as bad luck.
We know it's done unto us as we believe ... here's an interesting point ...Wikipedia also referenced an insurance company that states that fewer accidents happen on this date because people are being more careful!
It makes me wonder - what other superstitions have I bought into that are imbedded in the collective consciousness?
The Buddha said "The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly."
Not to anticipate troubles!! We do that all the time. It's called worry. Dr. Holmes called worry "negative prayer" ... and that's what believing in superstitions is as well. Allow yourself time this week to investigate what superstitions you've bought into and intentionally release them.
Today is a good day - It's God's day!! Live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
There is only one Life - that Life is God's. This is the life we are living right now.
Knowing this, I now declare nothing outside me can harm me in any way. Nothing inside me can harm me either. I have now released the bonds of the collective consciousness around superstitions and know the Truth. The bottom line is "It is done unto me as I believe." I now choose to believe in a blessed life, a life filled with all my heart desires. I believe in Good everywhere, and I know this is so because all there is - is God.
With a grateful heart I release these words, celebrating my freedom from superstition. I live, move and have my being in Higher Ground. This is good, this is God.
And so it is.
