The Law of Attraction and The Lottery
The Law of Attraction or 'The Secret'
In my article about tips to reduce weight, I briefly mentioned the Law of Attraction in the sense how feeling positive about your body and image can help achieve that perfect physique. This article further investigates the Law of Attraction and also finds the link between 'The Secret' and 'Winning the Lottery'.
In 2006, Australian author and producer Rhonda Byrne, produced a movie named 'The Secret' which was released in many countries across the world (including USA and Canada).
'The Secret' was essentially a 'self help documentary', which interviewed many practitioners of the Law of Attraction including Bob Proctor, Dr Joe Vitale and author Jack Canfield.
While the LOA has existed (like any other fundamental law of the universe such as gravity) since times immemorable (the word 'time' itself being called an 'illusion' by Einstein), 'The Secret' has sparked widespread interest and further study of the LOA, with more and more people reporting that they've certainly seen both minor and major differences in their lives by simply changing their mental attitude, feelings and outlook.
Personally, as a Reiki healer, I'm a strong advocate of the Law of Attraction and have always been interested in knowing whether it can be used to channel a multi-million dollar win on the lottery.
Before you read on, I'd like to state that everybody on this planet is born with their own destiny and alignments with the universe (material and astral) and therefore this article should only be used as a guide and not absolute or gospel truth. Remember that the cosmos knows best regarding what's best for each and everyone of us and things happen or manifest (or don't) in their own right time.
So let's explore what's the connection between winning the lottery and the 'Secret'.
Can the Law of Attraction REALLY help Win the Lottery?
The answer's Yes, it can.
It works without any bias on manifesting anything you give a strong feeling to - Anything without Exceptions.
Did Cynthia Stafford use the 'Secret' to win $112 Million?
Many of us have heard of Beverly Hills resident, Cynthia Stafford who famously won the California State Lottery in 2007.
The answer to whether she utilized the Law of Attraction to manifest this win is, yes she did. Cynthia Stafford was always a strong believer in the Law of Attraction and decided to use it for a good 4 months. She constantly practiced visualizing the lifestyle that she could enjoy if she had that kind of money, constantly focused on the $112 million figure on a piece of paper and kept this paper under her pillow. She continued this obsessive focus for around 4 months before deciding to release that focus and won the said lottery's first division worth $112 million after 2 weeks.

There's a difference between Winning the Lottery and Wanting Money - What do you want?
Let's admit it, anybody (including me) will be over the moon if we became overnight multi millionaires - wouldn't it be nice to check your bank account every morning and see a massive pile of cash parked there earning so much interest that you could practically live off it? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to afford almost anything you thought of without batting an eyelid?
All said and done, a lottery-win is a great way to address some things you'd always wanted to do and afford in your life, but you've got to ask yourself whether its the money you want or is it the lottery you want to win?
If its money you want - then why restrict yourself towards focusing on just one method to earn it? If you feel you're in some dire straits and need the cash, why not explore a new business opportunity or realize a talent you thought you didn't possess before?
A lottery's a good way of earning some good cash - but don't limit yourself to just one channel because you're then signalling to the universe that it should limit your money-making opportunities too. Remember, the Law of Attraction responds to what you're focussing on.
How do you feel about actually winning the lottery?
Surely we all love money and winning the lottery can potentially change our lives forever. But before you begin visualizing how your life will turn out you need to address if you have any limiting beliefs regarding money (espcially winning large sums of it) in general.
For example, when you purchase a lottery ticket, do you instantly feel that you're not going to win? Do you feel that your chances are too low to win? Or do you instantly feel that you don't deserve to win because there're others in the world who deserve to win a lot more than you? Do you feel that only old people and the real destitute have a greater chance of winning than you do?
If you feel any or all of the above sentiments every time you're playing the lottery, you're affirming those very beliefs and believe it or not, they will manifest as the Law of Attraction is absolute.
Once you imagine yourself winning the lottery, you've set the process of 'creation' in motion but if you want that creation to manifest, you need to rid yourself of all limiting beliefs. Believe that the money's already yours and that you deserve to win like anyone else does. Remember that the Universe knows best so leave any judgement behind you - if you have to win, you will, which now brings me to my next point.....
How do you feel when you DON'T WIN?
Okay, so you've set in motion the creative process and have now done your bit to get rid of your limiting beliefs but how do you deal with not winning or winning rather small amounts?
If the emotion you feel is that of disappointment or anger when you don't win, flip those emotions IMMEDIATELY!
By affirming those feelings to the universe, you're affirming a 'lack' of love and not the abundance of it (which according to the law of attraction is the prime power with which everything in this cosmos has come into existence). So what if you don't win? There's always next time and you'll have another chance. If someone else does win the big one and not you, feel happy for them - remember that we're all balls of energy that are connected to each other. By feeling happy for someone else's fortune, you're in effect making that fortune stick to yours ("Love has a sticking Power", from 'The Power' by Rhonda Byrne) thereby increasing your own magnetic ability to attract that fortune.
Stay away from being judgmental and once again, remember that the cosmos is an alive being like anything and everything else and it knows what's best for us. So celebrate any win, big or small and whether its yours or someone else's with a massive, heartfelt smile.
Do You Want to Win the Lottery to GET OUT OF DEBT?
Dissecting down from my point regarding visualizing what you could do with your new-found wealth, is getting out of debt one of the things you're visualizing? If you are, then there's a very good chance that you're going to remain in debt.
The Law of Attraction clearly states and has proven that what you think about, you bring about (i.e. Thoughts, become things)
'The Law of Attraction's absolute and doesn't distinguish between whether you want to get out or remain in debt; if you're thinking 'debt', you're going to remain in 'debt'. (as said by Bob Proctor in 'The Secret')'.
Even if you're in debt, try to not focus on it. Set up some kind of an automatic debt-repayment program and continue to focus on your assets. Focus on what you want and not on what you don't want and moreover focus on what you have and be grateful for it instead of focusing on what you don't have. Focus on money, but again (as mentioned earlier) do not get obsessive with just one channel as that will actually limit your ability to bring in more money. Remember, money and wealth are energies and mindsets and its your mindset and feelings about them that would determine their future in your life.
DO NOT Spend excessively on Lottery tickets!
Please do yourself a favor and stop spending a week's wage on lottery tickets! Remember that if you have to win it as per your alignment with the universe or your destiny, there's nothing that will come in your way!'
Down here in Sydney, I remember that back in 2011-12, a couple from the city's western suburbs (not far from where I live), converted a $5 ticket (roughly the same as $5.00 USD) into a first-divison jackpot win of $30 Million! (and I must point out that unlike the US, Australian lottery prizes are never taxed - tasty eh?)
It's just proof that while things like statistics and odds have their own scientific merit, the real deal is that your odds are 50-50 and not 1 in a few million i.e. you're either going to win something or you're not - it's really that simple.
A lottery's like any other business investment - you either strike it rich or you don't, but please don't spend money you've siphoned away for things like your mortgage or rent, food, bills etc on tickets. Be positive and happy but play it safe.
Also do not be attached to results, things manifest as per divine intelligence and in their right time - this is usually the hardest thing to do but let go of any control over the results and try not thinking about it. To desire is right, but to be desperate is wrong as the latter focuses on a lack of things rather than acknowledging prosperity.
And finally, Tune Up your Money-Vibration
Time and time again we all hear stories about people winning it big, only to go broke in a matter of a few years because of sheer mismanagement of their new found fortune.
This can be blamed on the person's 'money-vibration' i.e. what kind of money or the amount of it is their subconscious mind comfortable with?
Let's take the example of Donald Trump, he's a man who on more than one occasion went into millions of dollars of debt only recoup twice of it again in profits - that only happened because Donald Trump's subconscious vibration of money was at a level which was tailored to overcome limiting beliefs about temporary losses and was set at the amount of money he earned in profits.
Winning a large sum of money is all fair and good, but if that is your goal, make sure you're more than just 'ready' to tune your subconscious mind into being in harmony with that kind of money so that you don't make reckless choices with your winnings.
Hopefully this article has been a very helpful read for all you lotto hopefuls out there :)
Remember, you all have an equal right and opportunity to live a happy and abundant life.
Quantum physics has now proven again and again that we can enjoy any life and reality that we want as long as we're in harmony with the material universe (the one's frequency we're aligned with). Feel good about yourself (and others), visualize a life of abundances, visualize winning the lottery (why not?) and be honest to yourself and in what you do so that prosperity and abundance will be yours! GUARANTEED!
All the best :)
