"There is enough information on Lottery Post to help anybody win the lottery if they sort it all out."

If you're talking jackpot games, evidently none of us have figured it out yet.  (Or as some believe, they did and disappeared).

I seriously think you should watch any of the Wishmaster movies.

The Secret is only the latest of many, many 'LOA' books, and most of them most definitley instruct people to be specific.  

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    "Focusing on winning the lottery is kind of like focusing on "not having"."

    Using that logic, focusing on having a good meal at a restaurant is kind of like focusing on "not getting food poisoning".

    "I say this because of some discussions I've had with those who have held this desire. They have shared what they would do with the winnings if they won."

    It's obvious that whoever wrote the article wasn't discussing it on Lottery Post because most of those discussions were about what we would do if we won the record Mega Millions jackpot. The focus was not on winning $500, $1000, $100,000 or even $1 million; the focus was on winning $390 million.

    If in fact the focus was on "not having", it's on not having $390 million.

    "Yet, some of the things they say they would do with the money they could actually already be doing with their current incomes on a smaller scale, but they don't. Why not? Because they cling to what they perceive as their "meager savings" with the attitude that they don't have enough out of fear."

    The Messners are in their middle 50s and where quoted saying "we are officially retired" after winning their share of the Mega Millions jackpot. Does that mean they could not have retired had they "only" won $8 million or 3 bucks?

    "When we focus on "having less" then we create that experience for ourselves."

    That is based on "focusing on winning the lottery is kind of like focusing on "not having", which was not true in the discussions in this forum. The focus on winning Mega Millions was about "having a whole lot more". 

    "Better to focus on a particular object or scenario rather than on winnings or cash."

    Are the Laws of Attraction similar to "I Dream of Jeannie" of "Bewitched"?

    By focusing on a $1 Million home, will it appear if I cross my arms and blink or twitch my nose a couple of times?

    LOL!!!!  Tell em'!!!

      Have you ever seen Maddog's Mega Million challenge?

      You're asked to choose 12 numbers out of 56 and 4 out of the 46 Mega balls. Last week somebody only picked 5 numbers and 1 mega ball and 3 of their numbers hit plus the mega ball. I'll be keeping an eye on that person's predictions from now on.

        Here is an example:

        A man's mother owns a car that is need of repair. The son says "If I win the lottery I will buy my mother a new car". But actually, the son has the means to take her car to the mechanics and pay out $400 needed in repairs to assure that his mom has a dependable car to drive back and forth to the market. When asked why he doesn't then just go ahead and have her current car repaired, he answers, "Well gee, I only have $800 in the bank, and doing that would knock out half my savings. What happens if my car needs repairs next week or my daughter gets sick and needs to see a doctor?"

        So you see, the person's true focus is on "not enough" rather than being focused on Winning the Lottery. When we are focused on "not enough" it won't ever matter how much money we have, it will never be enough, and we will never Win the Lottery!

        "A man's mother owns a car that is need of repair. The son says "If I win the lottery I will buy my mother a new car". But actually, the son has the means to take her car to the mechanics and pay out $400 needed in repairs to assure that his mom has a dependable car to drive back and forth to the market."

        Had the man said "if I win the lottery I will repair my mother's car", his means to do so would be relevent, but that's not what he said.

        "When asked why he doesn't then just go ahead and have her current car repaired, he answers, "Well gee, I only have $800 in the bank, and doing that would knock out half my savings. What happens if my car needs repairs next week or my daughter gets sick and needs to see a doctor?"

        Was the article written in the 1920s when you could buy a new car for $800 or is the author ignoring what the man actually said?

        "So you see, the person's true focus is on "not enough" rather than being focused on Winning the Lottery."

        LMAO!

        He can't buy her a new car with $800 so by saying "If I win the lottery I will buy my mother a new car", his true focus had to be on winning the lottery.

              Nancy's Law of Attraction: 

              Rule #1:  Change your perception.

               

              Nancy:  Ooh!  He's cute. He looks so sophisticated. I bet he's a professor at the new university. I hope he comes over to talk to me.  (pant, pant)

              Handsome Guy:  "Hey, baby.  Nice rack!"  (fart, belch, scratch)

              Nancy:  Eewwww.  Yuck.

                Well, atleast you're not wondering why something you have been trying to attract just got delivered to someone else! LOL!

                So you’ve been chatting up a guy you like and now you want to take matters to the next level and engineer that first kiss.

                  I think SO many people are getting the point of the LOA/Secret messed up.  Too many people are getting caught up in semantics and splitting hairs with their thoughts; including the ORIGINAL author of the paragraph used in this thread.

                  All you have to do is focus on what you want most of the time and the universe will start to move in your favor.  There is no message in te Secret that says, "If you want to manifest a glass of milk you must visualize whether it is goat or cows milk and whether its pastuerized or homogenized or both and how old it is and what color white it is."  It says that if you want a glass of milk, just visualize and think positively about a glass of milk.  

                  I see this on the Powerful Intentions forums all the time, that is people racking their brains with unecessary bouts with semantics.  There is too many people getting caught up on the specifics of word selection and not focusing on the thought and feeling/emotion of having what they want.  You just have to keep it simple and focus on what YOU want, because when you do, your wish is my command and so it is.  Its not, "well, jane said I have to visualize every exact detail down to the molecular level if I want it to manifest and I have to use the exact words in a specific order to make it happen."  Well, if she starts to believe that, then that is how it will be for her, that will become her reality. 

                  One of the main messages of the Secret is that the Universe doesn't really care about speech or words, it cares ONLY what you think about the most and feel, thats it.

                  So in short, thinking of what you will do with the money after you win (to me at least) is NOT noticing you don't have any money.  When you are thinking of what you will do with it (the money), you actually are pretending you have it already. 

                  I see people on the Powerful Intentions forums talking about "Switch Words" and all other types of "semantic tools" (like they can trick the universe) and I am floored because they will end up racking their brians for nothing.  Playing with the semantics is not necessary.  You just have to focus on what you want most of the time, feel passionate about it, and be grateful for what you already have is the main message of the Secret.  To quote a line from the dvd, "What you think about, you bring about" & "Your life is a physical manifestation of your thoughts."

                  (Yes, I have watched the DVD and listened to the Audiobook (Unabridged) more than I care to say here.  And in doing so, I learn something new and understand something a little bit more, mentioned everytime. 

                  I won't say I am an expert on it but I do see that a LOT of people must be watching or reading the book only once or twice and getting the wrong message.  Even one of the admins over there (Marci From Maui) had to step in and tell people that the semantics are unecessary because the universe is listenening/responding to words, its respond to thoughts and feelings/emotions.

                     Let's take "Nancy's Law of Attraction" and do a thread on observations/ laws of lotto. by LP members.

                     

                    Re: Attraction

                    In the movie Wishmaster there's a scene where a guy is somehow trapped on the wrong side of a storm fence.

                    The Wishmaster is a sort of evil genie (A Djinn). He offers the guy behind the fence a wish, and the guy says, "I wish I was on the other side of this fence." The Wishmaster asks, "That's it?", and the guy says, "Yeah."

                    <POOF>

                    He goes through the fence, being turned to hamburger as he does.  

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      1)  I would be willing to bet that most of the big lottery winners haven't read "the Secret" or any "positive thinking."

                      2)  And I would be willing to bet that most people that have read "the Secret" or "positive thinking" haven't won big lotteries.

                      My conclusion is, save your money.  Forget "the Secret."  It doesn't take positive thoughts, it only takes the right number.  And that right number can come from anywhere.
