To start off, it has actually been sunny here in South Florida. The showers are staying away for now. May be a good thing. I’ve been putting this post off for weeks, maybe even months now. I’m definitely keen to talk about casino gambling in more detail. I’m gonna throw in some Oprah in the mix, well, because it’s Oprah. The rest will be completely spontaneous, BUT completely needed.
Hope you enjoy, and leave a comment if any of this resonates with you!! Everyone has a story. And sometimes two stories can be completely different, I mean almost night and day, but still help the other person. I’m happy to share highlights of my story, and will love if it has even the slightest impact on you.
1) So there’s Oprah, and the list can go on about what you say about her: she’s the 1%, but she’s also phenomenal. This is “Think and Grow Rich” philosophy. This is The Secret. This is the law of attraction❤
I had a cousin debate a little with me over this post. He wrote, “I’m going to disagree. She may have visualized all she has today, but everyone does that. She busted her ass for decades. That’s why you don’t see 5 million Oprahs. There is no scenario where everyone can be wealthy in any monetary system.”
While I understand his point of her working hard to get to where she is, I still had the book Think and Grow Rich in my head.
So my retort was, “I agree with you. With this segment of hers I just related it to the “Think and Grow Rich” book because I’m only on chapter 2, and already picking up the secret theme being defined as your failures being as important as your successes. They get you to that never give up mindset. Our system! That’s not something I’ll ever touch!”
In summary, he was talking about hard work and the monetary system, and I was just relating to the message of law of attraction, and your failures being as important as a learning experience as your successes. Either way, this is a grand and superb Oprah clip. In any debate you have in your head, hopefully you are saying, law of attraction for the win!
2) A transition from a motivational Oprah speech on failure to gambling just seems appropriate? Gambling controversially and beautifully connects with the energy of law of attraction. Just not maybe the way you are thinking. Basically, in my expert opinion, gambling is a major loophole when it comes to the law of attraction. And the answer why? The first word that comes to mind is vibration. Vibrational match. Look at this way, you can have a person that enters the casino with a measly $10 and build it up to $65 in matter of minutes playing roulette. Here’s the catch, if there vibration is low or their vibration is in a state where they believe that when you gamble, the money just eludes you, guess what will happen next? The same person that was up $55 could to go to a new machine, have a lower vibration, or even absorb a lower vibration, and lose it all back in minutes as well. Then ultimately, they are not up anything. They just lost $10. Now, I’ve also seen people win $900, $2500, even $5000, in one sitting at the casino. These people have a high vibration, or just a very strong thought manifestation of, “I don’t care if I’m gambling and it can be unpredictable or even reckless,”…”I’m a a winner,” they are saying. “Money comes to me now and easily,” they may also say. Now to wrap up this random bullet, let me tell you over the past few months, what I’ve done when I’ve gone to the casino to gamble. I usually only bring $40-60 dollars. Doesn’t mean I may not end up losing more, I just usually don’t bring more than that amount. That’s my comfort zone, so to speak, and probably also the reason I don’t win! Lol! With my $40 or $60, or even $80 bucks I pay cards or I play roulette. Just recently, I put $40 in a roulette machine, and built it up to over $200 in about less than an hour. Here’s the kicker and the catch though, the casino draws you in, so you don’t quit. Instead of coming out a big $160 winner that night, I lost it all back. And then a deep sadness and dirtiness sets in. The biggest thing to take from this, even when you do win, you are winning off of someone else’s lower vibration loss. Or like in my case, someone else’s only breaking even or losing small amounts mentality of “Gambling money just eludes me.” Sarah Prout, an expert on manifesting and law of attraction has an article about why gambling is NOT the means to manifest abundance, and she explains this all the best. I think it talks a lot about energy, present moment, and gratefulness in it. Regardless, she lives in Las Vegas, so she knows a thing or two about casinos. And she’s already a law of attraction guru. Here’s the link to the article. This quote below says it best, and by a culture that loves gambling nonetheless.
4) I’ve been doing some work to get my own business ventures started. Therefore, love has been on the back burner for me. Eharmony is not action packed these days, even more like a snooze fest. I didn’t feel like putting in my credit card info to get 7 free days on Match.com. Since a big part of what I am doing on the side is still small income, very small, or even for free, (but hopefully will be growing amazingly soon), Also my startup biz is only at the top of the iceberg of what I’d like to grow and do. To give you a little background about me, because like I mentioned earlier, we all have a story: I’ve already had major trouble with sleep and anxiety, and even barely working part time for myself, I still do. The thing about spiritual growth, or enlightenment, is that it isn’t always peachy or comfortable. So sleep and maybe even some other health isssues have been intensified lately. Even being temporary, it will get better. Basically 10 hours of sleep one night, and 3 hours or even 0 hours the next, is not cutting it. I can feel pretty wonderful on the 10 hours of sleep days though. Silly, I know. There are all different hurdles and tests even with this. Ever evolving and changing too. What I do know for sure is that this is a learning experience. All of it is. Even something as energetically further away from spirit, like gambling, is still making room for a learning process. An inner process as well. I may have most of my family that doesn’t get it. Or doesn’t get me. That’s okay. It’s all a part of the growth. Have faith. Have hope! And believe! Again, law of attraction, baby: Ask. Believe. Receive. In that order. I leave you with a great Maya Angelou quote (angel in her name❤️) I just heard on Oprah and Deepak’s 21 day meditation, Hope in Uncertain Times. It relates to this randomness post to a tee or t?!
Hope and faith can be your daily driving force,
