Can Hypnosis Increase Your Luck?

Hypnosis is quite popular as a tool to lose weight and quit smoking. But, did you know hypnosis can be good for helping you become luckier?

According to the book, “Lucky You - Proven Strategies for Finding Good fortune” (written by Randall Fitzgerald) there have been many studies of the different behaviors of lucky people. And these behaviors can be learned by less lucky people to become luckier. Four of these traits possessed by lucky people are: Belief that your lucky; Noticing the lucky things that happen to you, no matter how small they may be; Listening and acting on your hunches; and the ability to quiet their minds in order to get in tune with their hunches.

That’s right. Lucky people believe deep down in their subconscious that they have the power to attract luck in their lives. And, they notice all the lucky things that happen to them. We attract the things we notice. And, if we notice and appreciate that we are lucky, our luck will increase. And, lucky people listen and act on their hunches.

Now, these traits are behaviors that can be learned. Because, the truth is, luck is all in your head! Take the case of a friend of mine who, along with all the members of his family, is very lucky at slots. Whenever he goes to a casino he comes out richer than when he went in. Word got around at his job that he was very lucky at the casino. Then one day a co-worker came up to him and said he heard my friend was very lucky at slots. My friend said "yes," he was. The man told him that he was going to Vegas that weekend and needed some luck. He touched my friend's shoulder and said “there, I took your luck.” And, guess what? For the longest time my friend had become unable to win. Now, did somebody really take his luck? No, but he believed somebody did, and it had the same effect as if somebody really did. That’s how powerful the mind and subconscious is.

That’s where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is one tool that can actually go in there and change the beliefs of the subconscious. How exactly does it do that? Hypnosis actually is able to bypass that critical part of our minds and go directly to the subconscious and give it new, positive messages. But, how can it do that? How can it bypass our critical minds to go in and do its work? The answer is: Brain Waves. We all have them. Right now we’re in our waking state, which is Beta consciousness. But, by altering our conscious state through hypnosis or meditation, we take ourselves to Alpha consciousness, and our brain waves actually slow down. Basically we lose the critical chatter and inhibitory process that characterizes our Beta consciousness. Therefore, suggestions such as “I am a winner” and “I attract good opportunities in my life” are slipped in without the critical mind even noticing because it’s slowed down.

And that is how hypnosis can give you the characteristics to attract luck in your life.

Many people try to achieve goals. Most fail. Some strive, work hard and plan for all the details yet they achieve little or nothing at all. Others strive, work hard, plan and achieve huge success. Yet there are a few individuals who do little else than take small steps and seem to achieve a great deal with what seems like effortlessness. What is the difference between these people and which one would you like to be?
Most members of the human race fall into two categories - those who live in the past and those who live in the future. Most live in the past. Many of these are the people who achieve very little in their lives and are so fearful of the future that they dare not strike out to get anything. They are the under-achievers who hang onto bad episodes in their lives and either relive them time and again or look at new situations as similar potentialities. They say things like "all men are deceivers" or "all women are interested in is money" or "I can't do it. I tried before and it didn't work so why bother!". Due to bad experiences in the past they believe that all future events will turn out the same way if they dare to go after what they want.
The other type of person lives in the future. This type tends to create more of the things they want in life. They have a vision of where they want to go and exactly how they are going to get there. They work diligently at making concrete plans and they pursue those plans with a persistent ferocious appetite for success. These people are the high achievers - The Richard Branson and Bill Gates of the world. These people have much to teach us about setting and achieving goals.
However, there is a third type of person who almost goes unnoticed. They are the person who takes life in its stride and yet achieve most of what they want. I am sure you know of such a person in your life that just seems to saunter through life and yet they always come out on top. Or a person who you hear of that has decided to open a shop. You meet them a few months later and they have three shops all doing well! So what makes these people so successful and if they aren't living in the past and aren't living in the future where are they living?
I suppose you guessed it! Whether they are consciously aware of it or not they are living in the present. It is in the 'living' present that we have our greatest power. Everything happens in the present. You live your entire life there - even if your mind does not!
By becoming more aware of the present and by 'accepting' it as it is we are much more in control of our emotions and focus. When we live in the past we are fearful of making bad choices and/or getting hurt. We do not wish to recreate the past again! When we live in the future we can also be fearful of what might happen. But even if your future vision is full of power and worthy of working towards many people can, and often do, get stuck there. By constantly reaching for bigger and better goals they fail to enjoy what they have in the moment.
If you wish to start living a life that is almost effortless begin first by living in the present. Accept your situation the way it is and then you can enjoy what you have. Your focus changes from a memory of what was or a vision of what might be to a realization of what is. You become much more empowered to then see the beauty of life and also look at where you wish to make changes. But to make changes you must first accept the situation as it is. Trying to escape from your present only increases your focus on your problems by creating resistance to what is. Accept your life as it is now. Make no judgement, just accept it and then you will be free of doubt, worry, pain and fear. For you only experience these things when you live outside the 'moment'. subliminal messages
