I’m seriously over Friday the 13th having such a bad rap.
During my life I have come to observe Friday the 13th having a pretty harsh reputation. As long as I’ve been alive the dominant beliefs around this day are rooted in fear with the intention of spreading fearful thoughts, feelings and reinforcing not so constructive ideas.
Following up yesterdays post which was focused on “we become what we think we are” is the concept of “our beliefs about people, circumstances and experiences also shape our perception of them”. Meaning Friday the 13th can either be a negative, crap day for you or it can be a powerful and positive experience. The only thing that stands at the helm is your personal perception, beliefs and whether you choose a belief rooted in fear or one in love.
Here is what I have learned during my journey of life.
Astrologically Friday is ruled by the planet Venus- which is the planet of love so already we are off to a great start 😉
The number 13 while in our current society has a negative association when looked at in terms of vibration and numerology is actually really strong. In this sense the number 13 resonates to the vibration of 4 which is all about foundation, organization and structure. It also hold elements of both 1 and 3. One represents inspiration, new beginnings, forward movement, adventure and leadership. Three represents self expression, happiness, joy and creativity. Again all very positive meanings.
Goddess spirituality and encouraging women to re-connect to the sacred Goddess spirit within is something I’m really passionate about. Throughout history many spiritual practices have existed where the Goddess was celebrated and the earth was deeply respected and honoured greatly. In these times of Goddess spirituality, Fridays were believed and became known as very powerful and positive days as they represented the focus of love. Friday the 13th became associated with the Goddess Freya who is the Goddess of love, fertility, sensuality and creative expression.
For women the number thirteen shows up in many ways. For example, given there are thirteen months in the true lunar calendar means there are thirteen menstrual cycles which is a very powerful time for women to reconnect to their feminine essence and celebrate the beauty of their being.
Thirteen is also a symbol of our creative force for all humans. 1 (forward movement) + 3 (creativity and self expression) = 4 (foundations for success). We amplify our power by celebrating this creative energy on a Friday which connects us to the divine energy of love.
So today I’m choosing to reinforce my positive belief around Friday the 13th and celebrate it as a connection to love, sensuality and my inner creative force. Doing so only empowers me to see the rest of the world through this lens of love which is a pretty rad-tastic thing 😉
Whatever your personal beliefs may be take some time today to check in with yourself and take inventory on your current and dominate belief systems. I invite you to make a choice to keep only the ones that serve you, your highest good and the highest good of all involved. Doing so will activate more positivity within you and set you further on the path of love. Which really is the goal here at Radical Self Love!
Radical Self Love to the MAX!!!
