Most religions involve the use of affirmations and mantras of one sort or another, though they mightn't call them that.

  • 50 Hail Marys
  • Oooohm Maaaaahni Paaaaahdni Huuuuuuuhm
  • God is great (Ahkmi something or other)

Non-religions and quasi-religions also use them.  Daily gratitude affirmations, forgiveness affirmations, goal affirmations. 

One example was codified from the 1950s by Joseph Silva as 'Silva Mind Control', which includes repeating a mantra-like goal oriented affirmation daily.  Maybe healing an illness, financial success, resolving a personal crisis.

In the spirit of the mantra, the daily prayer, the hail Mary, the affirmation, I propose the following one for LP users to summarize the daily prayers and litanies of most LP users:

It can't be beaten

Don't try

It can't be beaten

Don't try

It can't be beaten

Don't try

It can't be beaten

Don't try

Buuuuuuuuuuuuy looooooootsa Quuuuuuue Peeeeeeees

 Buuuuuuuuuuuuy looooooootsa Quuuuuuue Peeeeeeees

 

It can't be beaten

Don't try

It can't be beaten

Don't try

It can't be beaten

Don't try

It can't be beaten

Don't try

Buuuuuuuuuuuuy looooooootsa Quuuuuuue Peeeeeeees

 Buuuuuuuuuuuuy looooooootsa Quuuuuuue Peeeeeeees

Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

It's about number behavior.

Egos don't count.

      LottoMike:

      Maybe Todd ought to split it off into denominations similar to the way he's done with the Mystical Forum:

      Lottery Discussion NO (QPs, lottery officials, It can't be beaten enthusiasts) with a hanging thread at the top with a negative mantra so's they don't have to post anything.

      Lottery Discussion YES (Folks who believe it can be beaten and would like to talk about it.)

      Lottery Systems NO (hanging mantra - They don't work they don't work they don't work)

      Lottery Systems Maybe (For discusssions of possibilities, ideas, testing systems without a lot of flack from those who believe others shouldn't try to do it)

       

      Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

      It's about number behavior.

      Egos don't count.

        Todd's a busy man.  He doesn't have time for a lot of things, maybe hasn't thought of others.

        I correspond by email with a number of once active LP members who try systems, want to kick around ideas, methods.

        But to a person, they don't do it on LP.

        They don't and won't and never will again do it on LP.

        They came, they tried, and they got runned off by the naysayers.

        They were ridiculed and vilified, and they said to themselves,

        What the hell do I need this for?

        So they kept working on beating the lottery

        but they stopped posting about it on LP.

        They got spang naysayed out of the LP picture

        Which cost them nothing.

        It's anyones guess what it's cost Todd in memberships and the forums in positive posts and ideas.

        But, luckily, the naysayers are still here posting everyday.

        So there's still something to come back for.

        Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

        It's about number behavior.

        Egos don't count.

          Jack,

          I would think that a lottery player would want to have an opposite mantra -- something related to winning and/or coming up with the right numbers.  Doesn't that make sense?  They say the power of positive thinking is extremely strong, and that's something I believe.  Thinking negative thoughts will probably bring negativity and unhappiness, wouldn't you say?

            Todd:

            I think I might have missed my mark.  The litany up there was intended to paraphrase what so many LP users are doing for themselves and others many times daily.

            My own mantras and affirmations run along different lines than the ones I posted.

            I was being facetious.

            A flaw of mine, I suppose.

              Jack,

              We posted our last messages at the same time, so I didn't see your last one when I posted mine.

              It sounds very negative.

              I will tell you that there is more than one way to look at what you're describing.  There MAY be people who leave LP -- but that happens on every single forum web site on the Internet.  It is not unique to Lottery Post.

              People leave for a variety of reasons.  Some of those people may leave because they don't like criticisms of their ideas, and that's just the way it is.  The bottom line with ANY forum web site is if you can't handle hearing from people who oppose your ideas, then this forum thing is not for you. 

              People who are sensitive to criticism are perfect candidates for small Yahoo groups, in which only people who share similar thoughts are invited into the group.  And they have to live with the limitations of a small group.

              Again, that is not something unique to Lottery Post.  It happens on every large forum out there.

              I've noticed that you have been posting a number of topics lately that examine the "negative" side of things.  I do understand that perspective, and I go through my own periods of doubt and negativity at times.  Please try to see things as a whole.  There is a lot more good than bad, and positive thoughts bring luck -- positively.

              Cheers

                Todd:

                I have, indeed, been examining a lot of facets of the negative side of things, as well as the positive.

                The thread examining the multi-state draws and what's happening to the money could as well be called positive as negative.  I've asked for information there.

                I happen to believe the fact such information is so difficult to dig out is a sign there's a reason for it.

                The most positive thing that can come of any doubt is holding the information to refute it into the light.

                That hasn't been done thus far.

                People who are sensitive to criticism are perfect candidates for small Yahoo groups, in which only people who share similar thoughts are invited into the group.  And they have to live with the limitations of a small group.

                Criticism, per se, isn't what I was referring to.

                The word criticism cuts too wide a swath to be allowed to fit what I'm describing.

                The people I know who've quit LP posting of ideas are plenty open to considered opposing ideas.  What they don't care for is a lot of sniping and ad hominum attacks, blanket refutation.  That sort of thing.

                Seems to me you have a culling process going on.  The snipers are certainly not 'sensitive to criticism', as you describe it.  So they stay.

                The people who 'are sensitive to criticism', however, go offline to emails with people of like mind to bounce around innovations and ideas, and constructive criticism.

                So you end up with exactly what you describe as not desireable left on LP.  An overwhelming majority of negative thinkers and snipers.  It assures that whatever happens with regards to innovation won't be discussed here.

                Just my take on things.

                Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

                It's about number behavior.

                  So What Are Affirmations?

                  Affirmations are powerful POSITIVE "I can Win the Lottery" statements designed to train your subconscious mind into manifesting Winning Numbers for whatever Lottery Game(s) you wish to play.

                    As you were doing with this Morocco member recently when he was trying to test the Expert Lotto system on the systems forum.

                    I'm glad you know about such things.

                      If that's too complicated I'll say it shorter:

                      Those mantras at the beginning of this thread are a summary of what's posted every day by LP users.

                      They're not intended as a suggestion of what any of you should do.

                      They are intended to point out what you are doing.

                          I am a bit divided when it comes to the lottery.

                          One part(the logical part) says The lottery can't be beaten.

                          The other part says There must be a solution somewhere, test every software and system you will come across.

                              As you were doing with this Morocco member recently when he was trying to test the Expert Lotto system on the systems forum.

                              I'm glad you know about such things.

                              When people spout bs and tell it to each other am I just supposed to just let them get on with it without challenging it? If that is what people do what becomes the accepted way things are is the story that is most likely to be retold rather than the theory that best stands up to the challenge of observed reality. If nothing is ever challenged then the truth will be buried and crowded out by the good story, the nice sounding lie, the pleasant whimsy and the elegant myth.

                              PS: We are still waiting for The Expert Lotto Team to post predictions!
