I can't believe the year is almost over! This year has flown by! So much has happened to me over this past year that it's been a whirlwind for me. I am thankful for so many things this year. I have been blessed and I know that 2014 is going to be a good year for many. The numerology for 2014 is going to be really good. The number for 2014 is 7, which is a really great and lucky number. Next year will be great for prosperity, spirituality, and psychic empowerment. Take advantage of it!
Now, it's time to prepare for the next year. Whatever you need to do chore wise, take care of it today or else wait until Thursday to do it. New Year's Day is one holiday that you certainly must relax and take it easy. I you are working your butt off on New Year's Day then you are going to be doing the same throughout the whole year to come. So make sure to do any cleaning or even spiritual cleansings either today or wait until Thursday to do them. Definitely don't use a broom tomorrow or else you will sweep your luck away! Don't take the trash out either or else your luck will be thrown out with it!
If you follow "First-Footin'" customs then go ahead and get ready. If you don't know what that is then take a look at my older blog posts as I've posted on it several times over the years. First-Footin' is basically the belief/custom/superstition that the first person and things through the door after midnight on New Years will be the omen for the coming year. Ideally you want the first person through the door to be a dark-featured man and you want the items to be symbols of prosperity, such as money, bread (for plenty), plants (growth), salt (purification/protection), candy/chocolate/sugar (sweetness), etc. You can either wait and just see who the first person is through the door and what they bring or else you can take matters into your own hands. Back in the day people would pay dark-featured men to be the first footer into the house, kid you not. Another way you can do it is to put items in a basked and tie a string on it. Then after midnight pull the string and basket over the threshold and into the door. Another way you can do it is hide some money or a silver coin outside and then bring it in after midnight.
Makes sure to open all the doors and windows at midnight to let the old year out and the new year in. Make some noise to scare the devil away from messing with your luck in the new year. Get that good luck kiss at midnight and have yourselves a blast! Also, remember to eat black-eyed peas tomorrow for good luck!
Wishing All Of My Readers A Very Blessed & Prosperous 2014! May All Your Dreams Come True!
