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, December 13, 2013, because you  believe something negative might happen. Based on the Law of Attraction, if you think Friday the 13th is an unlucky day, then you will attract negative things to you. I know there are disasters that support the unlucky energy attached to this date, such as Apollo 13 and the mass killing of the Knights of Templar on Friday 13, 1307. But is it really unlucky or another one of those ancient truths that has been distorted in history? 

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 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. 

If you’re born on the 13th feel lucky, because you're a strong individual, full of self-expression, order and discipline. It's one of the four  karmic numbers, requiring in the presence lifetime you step up and do your share of the work. 

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