Friday the 13th
Do you often wondered why Friday the 13th is considered a day of misfortune and bad luck? Whenever I have a question about numbers I seek advice from my good friend Lloyd Strayhorn. Lloyd Strayhorn is one of the most learned African American numerologists in the world.
In Ancient Kemet the number 13 was a symbol of power. Lloyd writes “the ancients described 13 as a “symbol of power, which if wrongly used, wreaks destruction upon itself” “He who understands the number 13 will be given power and dominion”. Until very recently the wisdom and philosophical thoughts of ancient Kemet were keep secret from the masses. The political power of religion made the study and/or practice of the knowledge and Mysticism of ancient Kemet a crime against the church.
It took 359 years for the Catholic Church on November 1, 1992 to admit that Galileo Galilei was not guilty of heresy for his belief that the earth and all other planets revolve around the Sun. Pope John Paul II acknowledged in a speech that “the church would rectify the wrong.” This was a major reason only members of secret societies had access to ancient Kemet wisdom. Galileo was influenced by Nicolaus Copernicus who was influenced by Aristarchus of Samos a Greek astrologer who studied in ancient Kemet centuries earlier during the time of Alexander.
Major figures in the development of the symbolism and philosophy of the new American government, leaders like Benjamin Franklyn, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington were members of secret societies they were either Masons or Rosicrucian. While being slave holders, the founding fathers built the symbolic foundation of the new government based on the number 13 using the ancient Kemetic wisdom and power attached to that number.
The number13 is used thirteen times on the United States Seal. There are 13 stars, 13 strips, 13 arrows, 13 berries and 13 letters in the words on the seal. The Kemet pyramid on the one dollar bill has 13 blocks; the eagle on the other side is holding 13 arrows the United State started with 13 colonies, there were 13 signers of the Declaration of Independence and the corner stone of the first White House was laid on the 13th of October 1792 as part of a Masonic ceremony.
The true understanding and interpretation of the death figure on the 13th Tarot card symbolically did not mean a physical death or misfortune but a death to an old way of life and way of thinking; a change for the better. The founding fathers understood the symbolic power of the number 13. I hope you look at the number 13 in a different way now; especially those who expressed an anxiety coming to our Ki wellness Center located at 13 West 122nd Street.
On April 28th 2018 the first day of Harlem Holistic Wellness Week 2018 thirteen wellness practitioners will take part in the first annual Sacred Commerce Pop-up Wellness Expo.
