Visualization and Winning the Lottery
By Remez Sasson
A lot of people ask if it is possible to use visualization to win the lottery. This article has been written in response to their questions.
Using visualization to win the lottery is quite different from using visualization to gain other things.
If you want a car, there are many cars in the world, and many more are constantly manufactured. You may buy a car if you have the money, or take a loan to buy one, or you may visualize having one and create the opportunity to get it.
You may use visualization if you wish to own a house, get a new T.V. set, a pair of shoes or a laptop. The same process works if you wish to own a successful business.
With lottery, it is different. There is just one big prize, on which all people focus, and therefore, your chances are smaller. You have more chances with winning the small prizes, since usually, there are many such prizes, not just one.
There is just one big prize, and millions of people consciously or unconsciously visualize winning it. In this case, it is your thoughts against their thoughts. Everyone's thoughts are competing with other people's thoughts and losing much of their power.
There is a higher likelihood of gain, when there are many opportunities and chances, than when there is just one chance. This is why it would be more reasonable to expect success if you visualize a car, a journey abroad, or a new job.
The question is, do you want to win the lottery, or do you want money? Does it matter through which channel you get the money? Does it really have to be through the lottery?
There are people, who do not want to sweat and work hard, or don't want to be involved in business, and prefer the easy way of winning the lottery, without giving anything in return. They believe that lottery is their only way to win a large amount of money.
Visualization can help you to win the lottery, but there is no guarantee that you will. You have to take into consideration a few things:
- How strong is your concentration?
- How clear is your mental image?
- How much faith are you putting into the visualization?
- Are you familiar with the mental laws of success and visualization, and are you using them?
- How much time do you devote to the visualization?
- Do you have doubts at the back of your mind?
- How many people are currently visualizing winning the lottery?
These are just a few of the factors that determine whether you will win the lottery or not. You may have some control on a few of the above points, but you have no control over the number of people who want to win the lottery. The greater their number is the smaller are your chances of winning.
You want to win the lottery, because you want money. If you want money, why do you want to gain it through the lottery? Why limit yourself to one channel? Why not visualize the money, and so be open to unlimited channels through which money could appear?
If you visualize winning the lottery, how would you feel after checking the results and finding out that you didn't win? Will you feel frustrated, unhappy, and lose your belief in the power of thoughts? If this is what would happen, you will be ruining your belief in the power of visualization.
- Would it not be better if you visualize having money in your account or receiving a check?
- Why not visualize owning a prosperous business?
- You can visualize yourself being rich, without visualizing the source of the money or the channels through which it would arrive.
- You can also visualize money coming through a business.
- You can visualize earning money doing something you love doing.
What is everyone really seeking? Everyone is seeking inner peace, happiness and financial security. Winning the lottery may bring financial security, but not necessarily inner peace and happiness. You may have plenty of money, and still be unhappy and have problems.
Wouldn't it be wiser to create a feeling of inner security, and to visualize yourself being happy and satisfied.
If you feel happy and prosperous inside, your external life would gradually be happy and prosperous too.
The purpose of this article is not to tell you to visualize or not visualize winning the lottery, but to show you that there are other ways to win money, with better odds.
