It is the start of the year once again and for many of you, aside from making our New Year’s Resolutions, it is also a time to look back to some of our beliefs and traditions and assess what the year has in store for us.

Predictions, psychic readings, horoscopes, star guides, etc. are some of the avenues we go to find hope for own future and hope that our future will be a better one this New Year.

This is seers and fortune-tellers season.

You may be checking out if this year is your lucky year.  What is the lucky color you should wear?  What is the best business you should engage in? What should be done and what should be avoided. And many, many more things to consider and practices to be done.

For many of us, these have been the rituals for years handed down to us by our parents and their parents and parent’s parents before them.

Religions may be doing the same but they are more likely repetitions of the tenets and rules in their teachings.  It’s more on reiterations and reminders of some sort.  That is why we don’t seem to be so much excited about them.

Unlike the yearly predictions and rules coming from the so-called psychic practitioners, there seems to be always something new every year which is why we get interested and excited by them.

This writer for one is not for or against this beliefs and traditions, whether they are from religion, fortune-tellers, psychics or folklore handed down from generations.

Beliefs and Traditions practices

Whatever you believe in is right.  Whatever you practice is correct. Each one of us has the right to believe in what we want to believe, be they beliefs and traditions.  Each one of us has beliefs different from our friends, family, or neighbor. Each culture has its own traditions.  And we cannot impose our own beliefs and traditions on others because that is violating FREEWILL.

Now here is the lesson of this article:  Whatever the beliefs or tradition that will make you better, lucky or happy, go for it and believe in them {if you want to}.  I-logical as it may sound, don’t use your mind too much.  Do not analyze too much.  Do not go against the flow.  Use your faith. Use your intuition and hope that these beliefs will benefit you.

“I should always wear blue underwear because blue is this year’s lucky color.”

“I should hang these lucky charms on my doorway because it will drive bad luck away.”

“I will start a business now because December born people are said to be lucky this year.”

No amount of analytical thinking can come up with a logical explanation on why the following statements are correct. The thinking left brain cannot make sense out of this.

But these statements will trigger hope, faith, and excitement in the intuitive right mind.  They may be classified as Post Hypnotic Suggestions.  But the power of belief is in most cases is more effective the power of logic.

Have you ever wondered why so many simple-minded people get rich and happy?  While so many intelligent folks end up poor and stressed out. Go figure.

Have you observed that when you have a project you are working on, just thinking and analyzing about how it will be successful is draining you of so much energy?  While trusting your instincts that your project will push through and just letting it rip is just effortless and exciting.

As the famous villain from Gotham City Edward Nygma once said, “If you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?”

Beliefs and traditions were there for a reason. If they will do you good, believe in them.

Have a Simple and Better Life.
