Lucky 13


Monday, July 16, 2018

Friday the 13th has been a feared day for many years by many people. Some people are so afraid of the day that they will avoid going outside, driving or even leaving for a trip on the day. I've read so many articles and seen so many personal stories about bad things happening on Friday the 13th but honestly, some of us actually really LOVE the day! 

I really wanted to share a little history about why some people are so afraid and some people nearly worship the day. This post could be labeled controversial and that's okay... I really just want people to have an open mind. I've tried really hard this last year to focus on self care and part of that means your spiritual side as well. I wouldn't label myself as one thing or another. I honestly just strive to live a happy, healthy life. Everyone has their own version of what that last sentence means and one day I plan to share more of my journey but for now we're going to dive into this spooky day! 


Friday The 13th..... 

Most people associate this day with nothing but bad things. Since this is the case, I wanted to share a little back story on why people feel this way. There's no surprise that this fear originated during Bible times. According to biblical tradition, 13 guests attended the Last Supper, held on Maundy Thursday, including Jesus and his 12 apostles (one of whom, Judas, betrayed him). The next day, of course, was Good Friday, the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. The seating arrangement at the Last Supper is believed to have given rise to a longstanding Christian superstition that having 13 guests at a table was a bad omen—specifically, that it was courting death.

On Friday, October 13, 1307, officers of King Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of the Knights Templar, a powerful religious and military order formed in the 12th century for the defense of the Holy Land.

In more recent times... 

A number of traumatic events have occurred on Friday the 13th, including the German bombing of Buckingham Palace (September 1940) & the death of rapper Tupac Shakur (September 1996). 

So as you can see, there are MANY reasons why people will associate this day with bad luck. I can kind of see both sides but let me shed a little light on why this day is sacred to some. 

In the Pagan world, Friday the 13th is considered a GOOD day for most. For ancient Pagans, Friday the 13th was a day where you would or could receive blessings & gifts from the Gods. There are many reasons why Friday the 13th is a sacred day for Pagans. Since this topic is very controversial and I'm not there just yet.. I just wanted to share that the biggest blessing on this day for any practicing Witch is spell casting. Whether it be for love, weight, fertility.. you name it.. The universe tends to take your spell with acceptance and ease.

  2. Arabidopsis root cells and embryonic soybean cells are identified for high proliferation rates and an absence of mounted identities. In different phrases, like animal or human stem cells, these cells can become completely different cell sorts. Meanwhile, more than 40% of individual soybean embryonic cells remained viable two weeks after bioprinting and in addition divided over time to kind microcalli. The analysis showed that more than half of the 3D bioprinted cells were viable and divided over time to kind microcalli, or small colonies Stylus Pen of cells. Just whenever you thought issues couldn’t get any higher, issues at all times do. The progress is so fast, and so groundbreaking, it won’t be long earlier than the latter half of} this information is old-fashioned.
