Most people have a feeling that their life is not working out the way they want it to work, they are looking for more good fortune, well-being and better luck. What they don’t realize is that their inherent “dissatisfaction” with life is the major cause of their problematic reality.
The reason why luck does not seem to favor them is because of their constant preoccupation with “negative” thinking. The sad part is that a vicious cycle gets formed – the negative thinking causes events that are not conducive and these events further aggravate the sense of negativity.
In order to attract good luck into your life, it’s important to have a shift in the way you perceive your reality in your mind. Some pointers and insights, in this regard, are provided below.
1.) Stop Judging Your Present Reality as Bad
If you want to attract more good luck and well being into your life, it’s important that you start changing your relationship with the “present” moment.
No matter what form the present moment takes, stop opposing it in your mind and allow it to be the way it is. It seems highly counter intuitive to the mind to accept a reality that it perceives as “bad”, but it’s this acceptance that opens the gateway to bring in new solutions and good luck into your existence.
2.) Don’t Dwell on a Negative Thought for More than 30 Secs
You need to be really conscious for this, so that you can catch your mind drifting off into a negative pattern of thinking.
Our minds are conditioned to expect the “worst” out of any reality and it takes conscious disassociation to stop being dragged into the negative thought pattern. Whenever you see your mind complaining, worrying or getting anxious, just disassociate with it and focus your attention on your sense perceptions.
For example, when you get tensed, focus your attention on your breathing or your heart beats.
3.) Write up a Page of Appreciation Everyday
This is a powerful practice if one has the trust to follow it on a daily basis.
All you need to do is write up a page appreciating everything in your life in the present moment. Just focus on finding things to appreciate about what you already have in your life. Don’t focus on the things you are expecting in the future.
When you look at appreciating the present moment, it automatically aligns you with your life (which is always “what is” right now) and this alignment causes you to attract good luck.
You will notice things beginning to work out for you more and more as you begin practicing the habit of appreciating and expressing gratitude.
Your future is always a direct reflection of your state of being in the present. So you just focus on being appreciative of the present moment, your future will automatically be benevolent and things will always keep working out for you – in other words you will keep attracting good luck into your life.
4.) Believe That You Are Lucky
Become conscious of all the things you believe in and try to change the negative beliefs into positive ones. If you believe deeply that you are not a lucky person, then that’s what reality with reflect back to you.
Become conscious of this belief pattern. For example, try to be conscious of negative self talk. Whenever you find your mind producing a thought like ‘oh, I am not lucky’ replace that thought with a counter thought. Say ‘I am lucky and I attract all good things in life’.
Another simple technique is to visualize yourself as lucky. For example, think of a situation and visualize a positive outcome. Think of yourself as attracting all the right things, meeting the right people and finding the right opportunities. Visualization can be extremely powerful in changing your negative beliefs into positive ones.
5.) Read or Listen to Positive Affirmations
Write down a set of affirmations as read them out every day. You can also listen to positive affirmations on channels like youtube. Examples of some good affirmations are as follows:
- I am lucky and I attract good things in life.
- Everything is perfect.
- I am worthy.
- I love myself.
- I attract luck every moment.
- I love my life.
- I always make the right decisions.
- I am always at the right place at the right time.
- Everyday I get more and more lucky.
- I have a positive vibration and hence attract positive vibes.
- Luck follows me wherever I go.
- I feel really lucky today.
6.) Learn to Meditate
Meditation can help you become a calmer person and get better control over your mind and the thoughts it generates. When you have better control, you will be able to easily identify negative thought patters and replace them with positive ones.
A simple way to meditate is to sit in a comfortable place and focus your attention on your breath or a sound for a few minutes everyday. The more you practice this kind of focus, the better you will be able to understand and control your mind.
7.) Carry a Lucky Charm
According to research by Prof Richard Wiseman, rituals such as touching wood or carrying a good luck charm can change your vibration to positive and help you attract positive vibes. This was also seen to be the case by another study done by psychologists at the University of Cologne in Germany.
Instead, having negative superstitious beliefs can have a negative effect. For example, someone who becomes anxious upon a mirror breaking is setting up negative expectations as opposed to someone who does not believe in such things.
8.) Look For the Positives In The Negatives
When we look at negative events as events that help us grow stronger, our perception towards these events change. We start learning from these events and use what we have learned to grow from within. This way a negative situation is no longer looked at as negative. This sets positive expectancy as our vibrations change to positive.
9.) Know that Life is Just One Stream of Well-Being
There is just one movement of energy present in the universe and this movement is one of well-being. Thinking negative thoughts, focusing on negative events, complaining and resenting what is, causes you to constantly oppose the flow of life. You can attract good luck into your life once you are in alignment with the stream of well-being.
The only way to align with life is to stop being “negative”, to ignore any thoughts of lack or resentment that the mind might throw up, and to just realize that whatever is happening is fine just the way it is because life is always moving in the direction of your well-being.
To attract good luck is about becoming a magnet of positive vibration. Look at appreciating what is, just relax and let go of your need to control reality, and let life bring you the gifts that you so richly deserve.
