Are You Afraid of Friday the 13th ?

Paraskavedekatriaphobia or Trishkaidekphobia

If you are afraid of the date Friday 13th, then you have Paraskavedekatriaphobia. You may fear leaving your home or making any plans on Friday the 13th because you  fear something negative will happen. And this year we have already had two of them, February 13th and March 13th. The third one will take place on November 13, 2009. Those who fear this date will be happy to know that this triple combination will not come again until 2012, when there is a non-leap year.
I know there are disasters that support the unlucky energy attached to this date and number such as Apollo 13, and the mass killing of the Templars on Friday 13, 1307. But it is really unlucky or another one of those ancient truths that has been distorted in history. And based on the Law of Attraction, if we think Friday the 13th is unlucky than we will attract negative things to us.

However, it is interesting that the founding fathers of the USA, who were Masons, revered the number so much they designed the dollar bill around it. 

·  13 stars above the eagle 
·  13 vertical bars on the shield
·  13 steps on the Pyramid
·  13 leaves on the olive branch
·  13 berries on the olive branch
·  13 elements on either side of the base of    Washington's portrait (8 leaves + 5 berries)
·  13 total letters/digits in both 1776 (4) and its   Roman Numeral equivalent MDCCLXXVI (9)
·  13 letters in ANNUIT COEPTIS
·  13 letters  in E PLURIBUS UNUM
·  13 O on the reverse of the one dollar bill

Here are some additional facts about the number 13: 

It is one of the Fibonacci Numbers. A Fibonacci Number can be defined as a number that is the sum of the two preceding numbers--the sequence would be 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,45,79, and so on  

There are also 13 moons. When you divide the year up by moons, you get 13 moons of 28 days each, plus one extra day.

There were 12 disciples and Jesus, the Christ, made the 13th and the same with King Arthur and his 12 knights.
In the Tarot deck, the number 13 is the card of death. It doesn't refer to physical death, but refers to the releasing of old beliefs to allow for changes.--new beginnings. 13/4 is also one of the four karmic numbers. 
If you’re born on the 13th, your life path is the 13th, or the compound number of your name total 1ebt from a past life need to be pay in the form of hard work and discipline. The 3 is about self expression and being social. You have to be careful with the spoken word and the tendency to let others do the work for you. 

May your day be full of loving-kindness and happiness.
May you be safe from all inner and outer fears.   
Happy Friday 13th,
