Graveyard Superstitions

Graveyard superstitions

Call them old wives tales, folklore, or prophecy superstitions, these are beliefs we hold whether they have any rational basis at all. They remind us of the fact that our actions have consequences, some can be bad but some can be good as well. Whether you find cemeteries fascinating monuments to past lives, or eerie gardens housing the dead, knowing the lore surrounding them can save you from some pretty undesired outcomes. Here are some of the gravest superstitions around.


Concerning Graves

Don’t worry so much about what’s written on the tombstone, instead look at the ground above the grave. If the person buried lived a good life, flowers will grow on the grave. If the person was evil, weeds will grow. Despite how pretty the flowers may be, whether placed there by loved ones or growing wild you should never take flowers from a grave or that spirit will haunt you. Graves should be oriented so that the bodies lie with their heads to the West and their feet to the East. Leaving the grave before it is filled or leaving it open overnight will welcome another death to follow. If the coffin does not go into the hole easily, it is because the devil does not want the deceased, however if it just slips on the way in it is a sign that a death in the family will soon occur.


Cemetery Etiquette

Whether you are simply passing a cemetery or entering one you should keep these in mind. Tuck your thumbs into your fists when passing a cemetery to protect your parents, and hold your breath to protect yourself. Being near an open grave will cure a toothache, but be careful that in your relief you don’t whistle inside the cemetery walls, or you will summon the devil. Never wear anything new to a funeral especially shoes. It is bad luck to point at a grave, because the dead will see you. If you are looking for a little luck placing some dirt from a cemetery under stairs that you walk over is said to bring good fortune.

Leadership is key with this combination. Since you both are aggressive and both want the same things, working together in harmony is the lesson here.

With one’s leadership abilities and three’s ability to turn ideas into real success, these two can have an extremely fruitful relationship. If they both stay focused anything can happen.

Even though ones are strong on leadership they are also strong on impulsiveness. Fours are cautious which can be irritating to a one.

People with a number six love art, beauty and the “good life”. The number one person is capable of delivering these luxuries as long as they don’t insist on having their own way all the time. A cooperative effort and this team can do great things.

Numerology: Power & Master Numbers

This time we are going to talk about the three Power numbers otherwise called the Master numbers 11-22 and 33.


The Master Numbers

We do not break these numbers down to a single digit. We refer to them as 11/2, 22/4, and 33/6 because they contain aspects of their single digit counterpart.

11/2

We already talked about how elevens have exceptionally high levels of intuition and spirituality. These are the people who are the guides of mankind. They guide us into lives of compassion and awareness. The eleven also has aspects of the number 2 which includes charisma and leadership. The number two is a duality of intuition and inner conflict. The negative side of this is that not many elevens live up to this great responsibility. They are shy and have a lot of nervous energy. This can give way to fear and self-doubt.

Elevens make great teachers, artistic performers and social workers.


22/4

Twenty-two is not only the most powerful of all numbers but the most successful. The number 22 encompasses the all or nothing. Twenty-two’s can become the masters of anything they are committed to or they become lazy drifters. Remember, 22 are double 11 and they have the practical aspects of 4. Four’s express themselves best in the material world. What a great combination! They possess an immense potential to achieve with intense productivity. The number twenty-two is rare occurring in a small percent of the population.

Twenty two’s make great leaders in all aspects of life, artists, diplomats and architects.


33/6

The number 33/6 is not concerned with self-advancement. It is all about doing well for mankind. This brings with it great responsibilities and leadership skills. These people are all about serving and helping the largest number of people. The down side of this is their being able to discern where, when and whom to help or they become overwhelmed. Remember, 33 combines 11 and 22 all of which are rare numbers. 33/6 also encompasses the number 6 which is about responsibility especially to others. It also represents a take charge attitude along with loyalty. There are always two sides to every number. The negative side to 33 is to become too focused on your own agenda and to care less of others. People born under 33 make great spiritual leaders, teachers and artists.
