If You Want to Win the Lottery, Buy a Ticket

A newsletter reader wrote to me this week, asking about how he could create a miracle in his life. He described some of the tragedies he had experienced in the last decade, which included financial problems, the death of his wife, losing his house and his career, as well as his hope and confidence. But he had not lost his dreams, he just didn't know how to make them happen in the face of what he saw as overwhelming limitations.

So when I wrote back and said that he needed to fuel his dreams by believing that they could happen and then allowing them to, he replied with disbelief. "Do you mean that I can just believe and it will come true," he wrote. My reply was "Yes, if you want to win the lottery you have to buy a ticket."

Our dreams are those things that our soul desires for us and knows are possible. We can look at our dreams from the point of this moment, in which everything is an unfolding potential whose outcome depends on what we believe can happen, or from the point of the past, where everything that has happened to prevent our dreams from becoming our reality reminds us that since we have failed in the past, how could we possibly succeed in the future.

In the first case we have the lottery ticket in our hand; in the second, we are looking in the window, convinced that we will never win so why bother to spend the money on a ticket.

Miracles are 'you in action,' a response to the energy that we put into our dreams. In order to allow them to happen, because it is a process of allowing, we have to buy the ticket, which is nothing more than allowing our beliefs to match our desires. Have we been limited in the past? Not from the Universe's perspective. Any limitations we have are those we created. So if we can believe in our most outrageous dreams, we can make them come true. If we want to limit them, we can make that come true as well.

Our relationship with the world is physical because we are aware of the physical reality. But this is only one perspective. Our true relationship with the world is energetic, because the world is simply a flow of energy. And we can manipulate that energy into becoming anything we want simply by creating the relationship between our desires and the energy around us. It has no judgment and doesn't care what it becomes, it merely responds to what we put out in the form of our beliefs and thoughts.

In simpler terms, your dreams are the lottery you want to win, are your beliefs are your ticket to winning. If you don't make the effort to buy a ticket, you will never win the lottery. If you put forth the effort to get the ticket, you vastly increase your chances of winning.

But what about the current circumstances, do they count? They are the results of the past which either remains in the past or comes forward into the present, every time we think of what didn't happen, every failure and disappointment, every dream that didn't come true. But we have to be willing to trust that the right person and situation can appear in the blink of an eye and then everything changes. That doesn't happen unless we believe it is possible and, more importantly, that it can happen for us.

Do we have to do anything? Getting our beliefs in synch with our desires is an important step and then we have to take action, by following through on opportunities that become available to us. When doors open, we must be willing to walk through them, even though they do not make sense to us. If you have listened to my Miracles teleclasses or read 30 Days to Everyday Miracles you know my miracle story. At a time when I didn't have any money I created a free vacation to France which I was paid to go on. There was no reason to believe that I could make this happen and I certainly didn't have the money to take the trip but I created the dream, believed it could happen and it did. And had I not looked at the email I received, offering me the trip, which came from a source I hadn't expected, I would not have gone.

This is how your dreams come true and you allow miracles to happen. And it can happen like this for everyone, including you. 

What lottery do you want to win? What dream do you have for your life? Do you have your ticket? Are your beliefs in alignment with the miracles you want to create in your life? "I know this can happen" is a powerful statement that tells the Universe you believe in yourself and in your dreams. "I know it won't happen for me" is another powerful statement that does just the opposite. The choice is yours, remember that the energy is just energy, waiting for you to tell it what to do.

2011 is just beginning and there is so much potential available to us. We have learned what we need to learn, now we have to become what we have always wanted to be. And that starts with our beliefs. Set your sights for your personal lottery and then get your ticket. Follow through on every opportunity that appears and see what miracles you and the Universe can create together.

Keep the faith, we're all in this together and time is moving quickly. Become the observer in your life as you stay focused on your path in this moment.

In these interesting and transformational times, we can be overwhelmed by what is happening in our lives but there are always other solutions. Here are a few things to help you get through the difficult moments in your life:

Stay calm, focused, detached and aware and remember your thoughts are creating every moment of your life. Think the best ones. 
As you ponder this and the other things that are happening at this time remember to:
Accept all gifts of understanding with gratitude and use them to apply forgiveness, release and healing to every situation.  

Ask for guidance and confirmation and then wait for it to come to you.

Above all, be grateful for this opportunity to be part of humanity's amazing shift in consciousness as we all ascend into the miracle vibration.
Many blessings in these miraculous and amazing times,

Yes, Jennifer, you are right. To win the lottery you must buy a ticket. A story was once told about a wedding feast, and it was not those who were necessarily invited to the event who got to attend, but those who were "actually wearing the right clothes". The clothes are the energy we drape our lightbodies in... the hopes, dreams, expectations and most importantly, the energy of love. Regardless of outer appearances, those who have the energy in their own aura matching the qualities of the energies now mandated to penetrate the earth from the central Sun and beyond will win the lottery here on earth. They will be wearing light, peace and happiness, and will actually attend the wedding feast, the marriage of their own energies to the divine frequencies now pouring into the earth. These energies may upturn the status quo, and can stir up fear in us. Let not your heart (temple) be troubled, These days are made for those with oil in their lamps. Shine the light...expect great things. We have been waiting a long time for this!
