The number 13 has so often been deemed unlucky. Office towers are built with no thirteenth floor, restaurants lack a number thirteen table, and there is even superstition about Friday the 13th being unlucky. Have you ever wondered why our culture practices triskaidekaphobia, the fear of the number thirteen? Thirteen is the number of moon cycles in a year, and was a sacred number long ago when time was told with a lunar calendar.
Let’s take thirteen back as a lucky number, a sacred number. Rub your hands together until they are warm and you feel them tingle. Say:
Lucky thirteen, bless these
Touch your eyes, ears, and mouth. Say:
Lucky thirteen, bless all I see,
Touch your thighs. Say:
Lucky thirteen, bless all I do today.
