So some people who have won the lottery report that they KNEW they were going to win it (or they had a really good feeling or a dream or something else). Other people say they NEVER thought in a million years that they would win.

Abraham has said that if you want to win the lottery (or get more money in other ways) you need to increase your vortex to abundance through processes like the prosperity game.

So what about this guy, who just won 22 million dollars last weekend and is quoted as saying:

"I shared the news with my family and two kids yesterday and they were all very excited," exclaimed Sobolik. "With a win like this a lot of stuff goes through your head like 'What are we going to do with this?'"

He doesn't even know how he's going to spend the money!! When I read the story about him, I felt very happy for him and imagined how wonderful he must feel with such an amazing win and such a big surprise. And then I thought, "I know EXACTLY what I'd do with 22 million -- and more!"
I'm not going to ask why he won it and not me. I honestly am very happy for him:) He deserves to have that money just as much as me or anyone else. But I'm wondering what he did or thought or felt or vibrated, since he obviously wasn't EXPECTING the win?

Any ideas? It's so exciting to know that there is so much incredible abundance, everywhere you go! More and more people from my local area have been winning lottery jackpots lately. In the past, there has been a majority of wins in other areas. But it seems like, lately, there are a LOT of people winning in very close proximity to me (feels good!). And not (relatively) small jackpots -- big $22 million dollar ones!

What is the most you've ever won, either in the lottery or through some other prize?

Through the lottery, the most I've won so far at one time is $75. I won an all expense-paid trip once and a BUNCH of smaller things. I win a lot:)

Hey Good Vibrations!

Nice post! Good timing! I have one week left of massage school and have $3.50 to my name! So lotteries have been on my mind a lot!

Yesterday I bought a $1 scratch ticket, and enjoyed scratching it (nearly won $200! wink)

It's about the second time in my life that I've ever even entered a lottery. I've been thinking "you gotta be in to win". So I'm gonna start being in to win! For the fun of course. I think you're cool because you enter things...I have tended to be a little tight A'd!!!

I'm looking forward to hearing people's winning stories...::cool

Incredibly, This has been a question I have been thinking of asking Abe when they come to Melbourne this year.
Why do people who dont have any idea of what they will do with the money, line up with such a large amount of it, and when they do win it,sometimes they end up in two years time in the same financial situation as when they bought the ticket?

A friend of mine has a University friend that won $30 Million here in Perth, recently.
He simply purchased, in the last minutes, 5 minutes to 6pm, a computer generated lotto ticket with 25 games on it.

He is about 22 years old and lives about 5 km away from me.

He kept the win a secret from the media, etc. and simply purchased a new Ferrari at the local dealership and that it!!

He plans to continue with his University Degree and to live 'normally' from now on.

Its interesting isnt it? How someone can let in from their VE  this beautiful amount of money.

That would be interesting to know. 

I play the lottery.  I spend $1.00 twice a week.  I then spend my time thinking about how I would spend the money, and how I would feel spending the money.

Whether or not I win, I DO have fun raising my vibration with the thoughts!  I can't care where my abundance is delivered!

Maybe the people who win do so because they have absolutely no resistance to it? They may have no strong feelings either way, kind of "yeah, it'd be nice if it happens ... NEXT!"

As for those who end up as badly, or worse, off within a few years .. I guess they never lined up with the new vibration. I remember a quote from Abe about relationships and how you have to keep wanting what you already have or you lose it. I read that as meaning you have to stay in vibrational alignment with what you have physically manifested as well as what is still in your VE. I'll see if I can find that quote ...

Abe has talked about the mind-set of lottery winners, who say they didn't expect to win. First, there's always an expectation, otherwise they wouldn't have won. So, the expectation is more, or less, a general one where you expect but don't focus on the 'When.'  The other thing they emphasized, is that many lottery winners are not even focused on the game, which is why they normally express their surprise, and say things like "I didn't expect this!" Of course they've thought about winning and how good that would feel, but beyond that - the lottery hasn't been given much attention. And, because of that - these people had very little resistance, so they won through the crack of least resistance, and when they least expected.

The other thing that happens with some winners, is that their intention is so great, and so focused, that their 'win' is actually a quantum leap in vibration. Some people come up to speed with this new vibration, and other's don't - which is where all those 'Rags to Riches and back to Rags' stories are generated.

Abe does encourage games like the Prosperity Game, where you receive money daily and spend it all - because on an emotional level - your vibration raises. When you experience an opening of your vibrational escrow and large amounts of money begin to flow - it won't feel uncomfortable, or confusing, or even scary.

This is an interesting thread, because I was speaking privately with another forum member the other evening about lotteries. After our conversation, I decided to do a google search on the stories of lottery winners. What amazed me is that the "Happily Ever After' stories are few and far between, and most have ended in tragedy. Not because the lottery is bad (although the media tends to twist it this way) but because the win was such a huge quantum leap in vibration - they didn't know how to bring themselves back into balance.

I did find one story about a young man, who after winning 300 and some million - taking home about 82 million after taxes - is doing remarkable. He had a plan, tho. He knew exactly what he was going to do, and announcing his win didn't take place until about a month after the draw...after he contacted his attorney's and lined up his financial advisors / investors. He paid off his home, actually gave his nephew his brand new VW and purchased a 2002 model for himself (because he liked the older design better) - took his family and friends to Tahiti - bought a new bicycle for himself - created several Trust funds - and invested the rest. His plan --- in 15 years he'll be a billionaire. Oh, and he didn't quit his job...because he really, really loves his work. I suppose if he didn't like his life's work, he would have submitted his resignation notice, however.

The bottom line, which is what I believe Abe would say --- is to get up to speed with that which you're wanting, and let the good times roll. ::money

I have just been listening to the most recent Abe-CD (excerpts from Mexico Cruise Jan 08), and there is a young man asking the question of how to do what he loves and make a living at it.

What Abraham says is to take "make a living at it "out of the equation- that WHATEVER you do that is in alignment with who you are will bring whatever is in your escrow to you.

So........if you are in alignment with being a drywaller, or a plumber or a student, or a homeopath, or a midwife, or a house cleaner, and you feel inspired to buy a lottery ticket or make an investment, WATCH OUT!

It is not about making that investment, or buying that ticket in hopes of   winning  so much money that will THEN bring you into alignment. What I am understanding is that being in alignment has to come first.

What is being in alignment for me? It is doing that which I would do for NO money and just for the sheer joy of it!

I can remember when I was working as a midwife thinking that I would do it for no pay.....Becoming a mother was something I eagerly wanted to do and it came naturally to me ( and I didn't get paid! LOL)

Now, coming into aligment with me, means reading, hiking, taking university courses towards a BA in English, being an administrator for our business (which, I might add, I pushed and complained against for many years- once I let go, I now spend less hours doing it, have more fun, and am getting better results).

It is getting completely lost in what I am doing that I have no idea what time it is or how much time has passed.

In the CD, the young man was a surfer and a musician- Abraham said that he was clearly in alignment while doing those things- he was ONE with his surfboard and his guitar.  Money would flow to him once he stopped caring what other's thought "What other's are doing is irrelevent."- and that this young man "knew the ecstasy of alignment". Alignment is an independent thing- no one else is involved.

Last quote from Abe" Your work is to come into alignment with who you are."

Winning the lottery is secondary.......::boat a way for the universe to find a crack, one of many possible ones.....

Love,

Aryana

I am looking at it that way as well, maybe they simply dont see it as important - they say that would be nice - and let it go.
Next thing they know they are instantly rich.
As Abe says sometimes, no thought is better than trying to think purely positive thought.
As for the others who end up like that after a few years, the above opinion stands as a possibility, the winner simply didnt have the practical skills to manage such a large amount of money, but the U yielded the request anyway.
Exciting Stuff!!

I was listening to the CD again, and it seems that you can be in alignment on some issues and not others... so if being in alignment with your work  brings the money to you that has been in escrow, you need to get up to speed with that money! 

So prepaving and working out your alignment with money will allow you to enjoy the money- just like any other "thing" that comes your way.

In the past, I would NEVER have even entered a store like Holt Renfrew's in Canada , or Barney's in the US- now, I walk through, admire the clothes and shoes, try things on, and even pre-plan what I want to buy, and even buy something I can currently affored. I look at travel magazines,restaurant guides and plan trips- some of which have occured very effortlessly!! I have had to learn to get comfortable with having money- this from an ex-hippie!   ::LOL::LOL::LOL

::rocketDoes anyone have an emoticon for a spinning vortex?::rocket

It's not about bringing things into your life ($, love, opportunity ) as much as it's about opening yourself outward (expansion) to include  what it is that you want.

Inclusion thru expansion

Think about it like this...you want more money...instead of trying to bring money to yourself, take yourself to it  thru expansion by increasing not only the spin of your vortex but its diameter  as well. You just get
bigger
& bigger and bigger so that as you expand outward & spin faster,what you want is enveloped by the sheer size and velocity of the spin of your vortex. By the 'casting out of your net' (your vortex/energy field), thru good feeling thoughts and ascending the EGS, you include what you want instead of trying to get it when it's outside your vortex.

I like that...

My youngest child knows how to do that, and she has taught me.

When she was 9 (!) we took her to NYC- what did she want to do?

Walk down Madison Ave and go into every designer store- there she was, an 9 year old, entering these stores, going and examing all the clothes ( Valentino, Versace D+G, Karan- heck, I hardly knew who these people were...but she had been studying the two Vogue magazines I had bought the previous summer)  and even chatting with the clerks...I started out feeling very embarrassed and uncomfortable, but realize now that she was spinning and expanding VERY VERY fast...and she has brought me along with her.  Her desires have caused her dad and I to EXPAND- from Disneyland every year, to going to New York for Broadway shows  (she is a dancer )and shopping, and now we are off to Ireland and London on Friday.

And then there are those people who win more than once! There are people who have one two or more lottery jackpots. Can you imagine? wowza!

I heard the story about the young guy who wants to turn his millions into billions. He is very smart :) The most successful lottery winners take time to get into alignment with the money before they cash in their winning tickets (like getting attorneys, speaking to the bank and investment managers and things like that).

I think doing all that physical stuff before hand helps with alignment. When this big flood of money comes pouring in and the media is there and then you have to think about all of that stuff, I can imagine it would be very overwhelming. That winner was smart because he took all of that into account and pre-paved the way (both physically and energetically) for that money to flow effortlessly.

Oh, and I buy tickets every week, too. As much as I would like to win, I get so much out of the imagining of it that I see that money spent as entertainment. I buy a ticket (there are 2 draws each week here) and I get to imagine that money is mine and feel the excitement of winning and the joy in all of the things I'll do with that money. Some people go to a movie every week, I play the lottery. The entertainment lasts much longer:)

My grandma used to win the lottery almost every week. Never the big jackpot but still - always cash. She never had heard or read anything about deliberate creating in all her life, and she was a very humble, minimalistic person. She never expected anything in life, maybe that was her secret.

My gran used to win stuff all the time too, including a local lottery jackpot one time - not millions, but nice anyway! As others have said, I think the people who win a lot are those who have a desire to win, but have some detachment - they don't give it too much attention, and thus don't have much resistance.

Regarding the people who win & lose it all, or whose lives go to pot - I think the vibration of acquiring money, and the vibration of keeping it (of really being a wealthy person) are different. Not everyone who aligns with the first is also in alignment with the second. I do think though that winners like that are in the minority - but they're the ones the media focus on, since many people (who probably are jealous anyway) like the drama of those riches to rags tales. Talking about all the people who manage their winnings well and then live happily ever after wouldn't make for a 'good story' (in their twisted view lol)

I believe that the universe is always acting in the now; the only place where action can take place.

I'm friends with a guy who has always been afraid of lightining.  (Lack).  Then he got struck by lightening.  Then he was even MORE afraid. Couple of years later, he got hit by lightening again!

Studies show that once you've been hit by lightening, your odds are higher of getting hit again than the general population.  They call them human lightening rods.  I call them manifestors!

Regarding the lottery?  Where were the winners mind at at the precise moment - the NOW - of the drawing?  I believe that is ONE of the keys.

I've proposed to my wife that we stick our ticket under the pillow and have sex during the drawing in hopes that the drawing occurs during a mutally aligned orgasm of alignment!

Then we'd REALLY be F*CKING MILLIONAIRES!

Ha, ha! Good one:)

Sapphire, I agree with what you said about the media focusing more on the people who lose their money. The people who win a couple million, move to a small town (or wherever), invest their money wisely and have a happy life don't make for good tv. It's the people who make you think, "what an idiot, he had all that and threw it away" that the media tends more to focus on.

But if you think of all the lotteries in the world, someone, somewhere is probably winning a large sum of money at least on a weekly basis (probably more often). Hundreds of thousands of people have probably won large lottery prizes. But it's only a handful of people who "screwed it up" that we hear about. Just like the celebrities with drug problems, divorces and whatever other problems are the ones we hear about most often. The people who are just living in joy and having a great life are hardly in the news at all.

I agree, GoodV!  If people were just following the news for contrast so they could manifest something better, that would be one thing!  But it's not!

I put TV/Radio/Newpapers right up their with organized religion and Orthidox science as the primary inhibitors of human expansion!  But... HEY!  THEIR pie, not mine, and I will allow!

I giggled reading your post Good Vibrations, cos it made me realise that I have gone to a movie at least once a week for the last fifteen years, even when "completely broke"!!!

I love movies so much that I don't even think about the money. I'll have "no money for food" and then find myself in a cinema, having a great time, come out again and "still no money for food"!! Ha ha ha ha::LOL::LOL::LOL

Maybe I can expand that idea to getting into lottery tickets...

this thread is very cool cos it's making me realise what boring thoughts I've always had about the lottery. It's just dawning on me that I've never even really admitted to myself that I would LOVE to have more money!

My Grandma said to me when I was about 18, "Oh, you'll always be on the bread-line, won't you dear!"

Hmmmmmmmmmm...starting to feel some indignation and contrast about that statement.....good sign!!!!

Lots of love, Sweetheart
