Regular readers of this blog will know how much I believe in the power of salt, especially rock salt, sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, and if possible the rarer Hawaiian Lava Sea Salt. You use salt to help cleanse an area of a negative energy. You use salt to clean things, especially crystals or gemstones, of negative energies. You use salt to drive away evil spirits, and a whole lot more.
In fact, I write about salt so much that I received an email from a person who introduced herself as a devout Catholic. She said all the things I write about salt are pure evil and encouraged people to be more reliant on salt that on the higher being. In her case, she was referring to the Lord Jesus Christ.
If I made people rely on salt more than on the Higher Beings, whether it is Jesus Christ or Buddha, Bodhisattvas, or Deities, or Allah, then I would like to apologize, that is not my intention. I simply want to share with people and help people have a better life by introducing them to the power of using salt. Salt really has some Feng Shui use or to be more general and encompassing, it does have cleansing capabilities that goes beyond the physical. I don’t want to argue about religion, but the truth is even the Catholic Church, they make use of salt whenever they make their holy water. Salt is one of the key ingredients in making a holy water, and one of the two physical ‘material’ the other being natural water. The other ingredients are Bible verses and several special prayers.
Pink Himalayan Salt
In fact, salt is used in different religions as a ‘psychic’ or ‘auric’ cleansing agent.
I don’t want you to rely on salt more than you can rely on the higher beings. But there is nothing wrong in using salt, besides I assume even the Pope will need it to make Holy Water.
The title needs no more explanation because ‘Friday the 13th’ says it all, both in Westerners or Easterners knows about the belief the Friday the 13th is such a bad day.
But is there truth to it?
Base on Buddhist, Taoist, and Feng Shui perspective there is no truth to the belief that Friday the 13th is a bad day. But why is it so many people believe that when the 13th day of the Western calendar falls on a Friday it creates a bad luck? Well, there are actually two explanations to it; one was discussed by Dan Brown in his book ‘The Da Vinci Code’. Let’s discuss that first.
The Knights Templar used to be a very powerful secret order. At that time King Philip IV of France feared their power and decided to order some key personnel of the Knights Templar and the slaughtering of the rest of its members. Base on Dan Brown’s book it is said that it was Pope Clement V who instigated this, but a number of historians believes that it was King Philip IV who made the order and that Pope Clement V initially vehemently protested the king’s decision. The slaughtering of the Knights Templar happened on October 13, 1307 and it was on a Friday.
Another story has something to do with the belief about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is said Jesus’ sacrificed happened between Maundy Thursday to Black Saturday, and that there were 13 people on the Last Supper.
Please note that the belief in ‘Friday the 13th’ started on the 20th century. And it is said that charlatans to make themselves popular used these.
So don’t worry, it is quite safe to go out on a Friday the 13th!
