“Very superstitious, writings on the wall
Very superstitious, ladders bout’ to fall
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past” Stevie Wonder – Superstitious
Are you superstitious? Do you avoid walking underneath ladders? Do you avoid cracks on the pavement paths? Do you have a fear of black cats? I once read that if a black cat is walking towards you it is bringing you luck, however if it walks away from you, it is taking luck away. Do you have a lucky number? Or maybe an unlucky number?
About 2 years ago I accidentally broke a mirror. I looked up remedies to rid myself of 7 years of bad luck. I wasn’t sure if I believed in that myth (but you can never be too careful!) So I took the mirror outside under the moonlight and ground it into dust…low and behold…the last 2 years I have certainly lacked in the ‘luck’ department – so is it because of that broken mirror? Or is it just the way my life has panned itself out so that it can make way for bigger and better things? I am going for the latter my friends, because the glass is always half full! Bigger and better things are on the horizon!
This year I have taken other measures to improve my ‘luck.’ For instance, there are many suggestions and ideals as to when the ‘right time’ is to take down the Christmas tree and the Christmas decorations. I entrusted good old Google and they suggested that the 6th of January was when it should be taken down, and if you miss that date you need to wait until the 2nd of Feb! So on the 6th of Jan I pulled down all of my decorations with care, positive that this will some how aid in boosting my luck levels in 2018!
The power of the full moon and the new moon. I have started some rituals, such as putting my oracle and tarot cards in the moonlight to cleanse and charge, along with my stones and crystals. I sage my house to clear the energy and to attract only positive vibes to my home and within my life.
I have also started setting and releasing intentions on a full moon. An interesting and invigorating concept. It kind of reminds me of being a child…everything was so magical. As a child you have so much to believe in – Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Pixies, Fairies, they all exist and wishes certainly do come true! Some where along the way, as we grew up we lost it. Now I don’t know if it is my current love for self-help books and manifestation articles, making dreams reality, so on and so forth, that I have started feeling the same way. Life is magical. You need to constantly believe that something wonderful is about to happen! And generally it will. For instance I went for a walk on a beautiful summer’s day, a couple of days into the new year and as I was walking I saw the most beautiful butterfly. It was black and had distinct red and white markings. That was wonderful, and certainly made my day! These wonderful life things that happen to each and every one of us does not have to be as huge as winning the lotto, but there is certainly beauty and wonder in every single day.
So I am going to dub myself ‘Lady Luck’ because what you believe, you receive.
