Superstitious, AnyOne? 

“Friday the thirteenth is my lucky day.”
Superstition is belief or notion, not based on reason, knowledge, or experience. The word is often used pejoratively to refer to folk beliefs deemed irrational. This leads to some superstitions being called "old wives' tales". It is also commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy and spiritual beings, particularly the irrational belief that future events can be influenced or foretold by specific unrelated prior events.

The etymology is from the classical Latin superstitio, literally "a standing over", hence: "amazement, wonder, dread, especially of the divine or supernatural"[1] The word is attested in the 1st century BC, notably in Cicero, Livy, Ovid, in the meaning of an unreasonable or excessive belief in fear or magic, especially foreign or fantastical ideas. By the 1st century AD, it came to refer to "religious awe, sanctity; a religious rite" more generally.[2][3]

Remember what we believe in metaphysics is what we see because we are looking for proof that our beliefs are real.  And what we do not want to see, but still believe is also attracting our energy and focus.
It is time to experiment with the belief that all things are not only possible but probable with our full faith.
When we have a split between knowing, believing, wanting to believe and doubting, we divide our energies among them.

Give yourself the opportunity to clear all obstacles, doubts, worries, uncertainties and fears.
Make a game of choosing something to give your full attention to as though it already were true.
Try out gathering information which causes you to doubt yourself and watch what happens.
Know for sure that something is possible and see it appear.

Too often we think there is external cause and do not accept our responsibility in the realization.
We create the experiences we have because we unconsciously set them into motion.
When we are fully engaged in Good and only Good, our lives appear Good to us.
When we are even partially fearful, resentful, doubtful, questioning, we have mixed results.

The power of our collective minds is enormous, as in prayer.
When we prayer the use of our mental focus, can be for the Highest Good rather than imaging a result.
When we choose someone to offer help, select someone who believes what you believe.
When we live life as though it would always be Good for us, we see the Good in it always.

Superstition is the opportunity to believe what we choose that is Good for All.
Superstition is a choice to believe in a higher power from which and through which we create.
Superstition is  a way to use the power we are given as co-creators in a world of discovery.
May this day be your opportunity to discover how Good life can be.

You and I deserve a Good life which is shared and inspires others to do create the same.
When we all are living our desired life of Goodness, Wholeness and Beauty, there will be peace.
When we have no doubts, fears and resentment, we will live together with Joy, Gratitude and Love.
This is our healing and Holy work, so let us believe it is coming into being now.

Loving you,
