What do you say? Can we force luck, can we do things to make us lucky, or are you either born lucky or not?

Are very lucky people just born that way, end of story? 

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.

        A old guy i used to work with says everybody has 15 minutes of luck every day. You might not realize it or even know your having a lucky episode but if you think real hard about it during the day you will experience it.


        Examples are
        There is a hot cup of coffee on your desk you swipe it by accident and before it falls into you lap you catch it.


        Everyone that drives has had their share of luck by having a near accident. But didn't get struck or strike another vehicle or person.


        You walk into a place and play 3 numbers in keno for 1 game those three numbers come out you play another three numbers and those numbers come out you play another three numbers and they come out also. You just had about 10 minutes of luck. All of the sudden you play multiple numbers in keno and start losing time's up. your luck is used up for the day.
        There are all kinds of examples of this you just have to tap into it.

          You have to allow yourself to be lucky. Everyone has this ability within them. A person can be as lucky as they want to be. It is as if luck is as easy as breathing. Simply remember how to be lucky.

          When you start to realize that you can allow luckiness in your life then miracles will begin to happen all around you. You can begin to feel this within yourself as you are reading these very words. Allow luck into your life! Allow luck into your life now! :)

          You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!

            I'm hoping I won't get crucified for my opinion, but I chose the sixth choice from the top.

            You can be positive, but you can't force luck. Infact it's a good thing to feel positive because not only does your immune system benefit, but your entire body and mind.

            Outside of the above, in my opinion, it's all mumbo jumbo. As much as the unicorn exists, the tooth fairy,Thor, santa clause, and the boogy monster.

            I've known many people at both ends of the positive and negative spectrum having good and bad luck in their lives. I just try to be thankful when luck does come my way, like 6 days ago with a straight hit in Florida. I didn't force it, I didn't chant mantras, I didn't light any candles, and I didn't pray to the JU JU god on top of Mount Kilimanjgaro.

            Infact I was very frustrated that day when I was filling out my betslip. Not positive.

              I chose that you can think positive, but you can't force luck.  I also agree with four4me because each day we have some luck that comes our way. I feel lucky just to have a roof over my head.  On the other hand, I'm not sure the term is "luck" at all. 

              Regarding a "near miss" - last week there was a bad accident ahead of me.  Was I lucky because I was a few minutes behind?  Sure, I was. Does that means the driver ahead of me was very unlucky? Was he just in the wrong place at the wrong time when the truck next to him hydroplaned and spun into his car? I have a friend whose husband was shot to death in a convenience store.  Last month I was shocked when I read in the paper that a former co-worker & friend drowned in a freak boating accident.  So are all these people very, very unlucky because I'm still here?  My next door neighbor was diagnosed with cancer 4 years ago and still smokes his brains out, but he hasn't kicked the bucket yet (which is a mystery to me) so maybe he's much luckier than my aunt who died from lung cancer in February only months after being diagnosed.  By the way, she never smoked a day in her life.

              Yesterday I turned on the news and a plane had just landed on top of a home because it was trying to make an emergency landing and missed the airport.  A family is in critical condition.  Could they have gone back in time to prevent this horrible quirk of fate?  (anyone ever see the movie Donnie Darko?) Did their thoughts cause the pilot to land short of the runway? 

              People talk about past lives and "Karma" but does this mean if, in another life, you were cruel and thoughtless you are now doomed to pay for the sins of a former being?  Are the people who win the big jackpots descendants of saints and do-gooders?

              I guess my feeling about luck is that our attitudes can definitely have a strong influence on what happens in our lives, but all we can do is smile, pray & put our best foot forward, hoping we don't get struck by lightning or get hit in the head by a falling meteorite.

                I've NEVER had that kind of luck.    I am quite lucky at car accidents though.  And a lot of other things that do not involve money.

                     Not everybody like or know how to hyperventilate, for rise their vibrations ... Some person would easily do this type of thing.

                     

                    Sometimes, I wonder about how much "positive" persons would know how to breath ... It is a breeze for some individuals!

                      Sorry to hear that.  You are so young.  Don't get into a 50 year rut like I did, traveling down the path to nowhere.  You can turn the wheel, shift into gear and take off for new & amazing places. Just do it before you run out of gas**

                      **I wrote that metaphorically.  When you get older, you never run out of gas.

                        It's about allowing, the reference to breathing was a metaphor. What I am talking about is not a breathing technique. Instead it is allowing the abundance of the universe to flow to you.

                        It's about unlearning all the BS constraints placed upon us by culture, religion, morals, and such that are designed to tear us down rather than build us up.

                         

                        Stop listening to people who want to box up your possibilities.  Simpley stop listening to them. Start listening to your inner voice and what you want to hear. What you truely want to hear. Hold onto what you want.

                        You can. I can. 

                        The opinions and views of others on your Luck are just that opinions. Your own reality in regards to luck is up to you.

                        Everyone can start listening to their inner voice, their inner desire, their inner guide to take them to that desire.  Listen to what's inside of you.

                        Stop listening to people that want to box you up. Start listening to people who can enforce your positive growth on your path to your dreams.

                        Do this now and you feel start to realize that your dreams are becoming closer to you.

                        You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!

                          The Flux and the energy flow also use a breathing technique ... Like sports and music , breathing is a important part , it is "so basic" ... 

                          Hyperventilation is not a metaphor , if someone wanted to measure the electrical activity of the Brain . This could be used , like when a person need to Breath and count from one until ten to calm down . 

                          I even remember a (mini) comic book that has a story about the pigs, the Bad Wolf and a negative dog ... Breathing is one of the 'positive' points , like focusing in the energy flow. Sure that some "blue" could be a little 'sad' and use the Aura to drain or dodge energy , even trying to drain the "Grace" auric knew as "luck" ...

                          Inner guides are spirits and sometimes (most of the time) could be falsehood spirit.  Some people are simply using some old techniques ...  If you use a bright aura that emanate from the Universe or the Cosmos , most of the time some persons are falling into tapping into one of the Powers of the Universe , like the "Natural Forces" ,even the Death or Devil...

                              I Agree!

                              But , this time the 'other poster that started'  . At least now we could knew a little more about the "sad" complainers and the 'energy'  draining of Lucky ... Also well know for colling water (more dense = ICE ) ...  Pray , pray and pray .
