Could You Win the Lottery Using the Law of Attraction?

What would you do if you won the lottery? Buy houses on Millionaire’s Row, help out friends and family members, start a charitable foundation and go travelling around the world?

I meet people all the time who feel it’s their destiny to win the lottery. Go on, don’t be modest – are you going to win the lottery one day?

Do you think it’s possible to win the lottery using the Law of Attraction? After all, we’re told you can attract anything you want – nothing is too big or small.

I do believe I will – and no, I haven’t won the lottery yet, but I’m going to do a manifesting experiment to challenge what I think I can create.

I’ve already proved that I can manifest massive things into my life, why not a major million-dollar lottery win? Do you want to join the experiment?

For the record, I’m not advocating the dream of winning the lottery as your financial plan or retirement strategy; I’m just curious if I can use the Law of Attraction to manifest it using what I know and have already put into practice.

According to NSW Lotteries, the odds of choosing all 6 winning numbers is approximately 8,145,060 to one. Should that put you off? If there are more than 8 million alternative universes (scientists say there are an infinite amount), then in at least one universe, there’s a 100% chance you are a lottery winner.

But not everyone can win the lottery surely?

Why not? But they won’t, even if they really, really want to. Like any outrageous goal, most people aren’t prepared to apply consistent effort over time without seeing immediate gratification. Take dieting for example!

That may sound harsh, but there are many things I’d like to do in my life that won’t happen because I forget about them, change my mind, have major emotional blocks around the goal or I’m just plain lazy. Ultimately some goals just aren’t that important to me when it comes down to the hard work.

So, how do you enhance your chances of winning the lottery using metaphysical principles?

First of all, you’ve got to buy a ticket.

I’m not being glib here, but you actually do need to play the lottery to win the lottery. I haven’t won yet because I rarely play! That of course, will change for the experiment. It’s the most practical first step.

When Mark and I won the Ultimate Job competition, we competed against 30,000 people. But the competition website had millions of hits. Why didn’t more people apply even when it was probably their dream job too? Six months travelling the world for free. Who wouldn’t want that?

Most people have a vague idea about what they want, but don’t even take the very first step to achieve it. The entry requirement for the competition was to create an 80 second application video. How many people stumbled at that first hurdle?

You don’t need to buy hundreds of tickets to improve your chances of winning the lottery (contrary to popular belief). You only need one, but you should buy a ticket regularly. I’m going to play more or less weekly for this experiment. I don’t even think the numbers matter, so I’m going to do an auto-pick.

Have you got your ticket?

Do you want the money or the lifestyle?

The appeal of the lottery win is the fantasy that all of your dreams can come true instantly.

As fun as it would be to jump into a giant pile of cash, what would you actually do with it? Most of us don’t really want the money; we want what the money represents to us – freedom, no worries, the ability to buy what we want and to help our friends and family.

Do you even want to be a millionaire? Maybe you don’t even need to win the lottery. Could you be using that as an excuse as to why you’re not living the life you want?

Sit and write down your goals on paper. What do you specifically want in your life? How much money do you want, where do you want to live, how do you want to spend your time?

If you don’t know, book a life coaching session with me where we’ll look at 8 different areas of your life, prioritise what’s important to you and define really specific and inspiring goals.

Once you know what those dreams are, create a vision board and put it up everywhere – on your wall, computer or fridge and always have those dreams top of mind.

Just being aware of what you want will make a huge difference in the attainment of your goals, regardless of winning the lottery.

Next, calculate how much those dreams will actually cost you. You may not even need to win the money; your dreams are probably within grasp already.

There are some excellent free online tools for this:

Tim Ferriss’ Dreamlining worksheets help you to break down the cost of what you want to Be, Do and Have which gives you a TDI, a Target Daily Income. It costs much less than you think to create the life of your dreams.

Alexis Neely Martin’s Money Mapping Tool is very interesting. She asks you to cost up your minimum, current, preferred and “no limits” standard of living and work out what you need to charge or make per hour to live it.

Knowing exactly what you’d like to do with the money and how much you’ll need could create a completely unexpected windfall that has nothing to do with a lottery win. You may attract the right people, opportunities, courses or tools to attain your goals without needing millions of dollars.

Could you be sabotaging a win?

Is there anything that could be holding you back from a lottery win?

Before you think, “That’s ridiculous! Of course I’m ready – bring it on!” — just hear me out.

Last year, I was talking to my friend Jill and she told me how she’d love to win the lottery. She started telling me all the things she’d do with the money. I launched right in with my 2-cents worth.

I found myself telling Jill all the problems that could result if she won the lottery. First, it would cause huge fights in her family over money and her friends would probably be resentful about her new status. Second, statistics show that 95% of lottery winners blow it all after five years, so she’d probably end up broke. Lastly, she’d have to keep her win anonymous because of all the crazy people who would probably stalk her and want to kidnap her children for ransom money.

I’m slightly exaggerating, but her face was falling as I was sharing these negative thoughts, getting more and more animated about why winning the lottery would basically ruin her life. Suddenly I realised these were my negative fears about winning the lottery and I was killing poor Jill’s dream!

It’s impossible to consciously create success if there are unconscious fears or thoughts about the potential outcome. I didn’t want to be stalked or have my friends hate me, and as long as I had that unconscious association with winning the lottery, I would never be able to win it, no matter how many tickets I bought.

Here’s something for you to ponder:

Can you think of any downside to having a lot of money and being rich? Would you feel guilty if you suddenly got a lot of money and didn’t have to work for it? Would you feel somewhat cheated about becoming a “successful entrepreneur” if it all just fell in your lap? Would you worry that you’d have the pressure to support your family, including the dead-beat ones? Do you have a sneaking suspicion that you’d waste the money and end up broke? What’s the worst thing that could happen if you won the lottery?

The best way to overcome such negative thoughts is to be aware of when they come up for you and break the pattern using positive affirmations, positive thinking or positive action.

Every time you find a coin in the street, thank the Universe for the sign that abundance is flowing in your life. If you lose money, thank the Universe for the important financial lesson. See everything as a sign that you’re destined to be a rich person.

Practise small – go and play Bingo and visualise yourself winning. I did and won two games in one night, whereas previously I’d be terrified to win in case I yelled “Bingo!” wrong. (How silly is that, but it’s true and I never won when I was stressed about it!)

Get used to winning small things and then build up. Soon, winning the lottery will seem more achievable.

But Denise, I still really want to win the lottery!

Ok, I understand. You want to win the lottery for its own sake. There’s nothing wrong with that – it’s a totally worthy goal. I officially give you permission to want that.

Are you willing to work on this goal daily? Are you willing to wait as long as it takes?

Jim Carey famously wrote himself a 10 million dollar check in 1983 when he was a struggling comedian and in 1996, he was paid 20 million for The Cable Guy. Could you wait that long and still believe your dream is coming true? Most people would give up.

Here are some things you could do to show the Universe that you’re really serious about winning the lottery:

Buy a ticket regularly, but not with desperation. Be unattached to the outcome but know you’re putting your “hat in the ring”. State on your goal list that you are a lottery winner and specify how much you want to win. Put pictures on your dream board of a giant novelty sized cheque, piles of money and all the things you’d buy with your winnings. Clean up your money habits and prove that you can take care of what you’ve already got. That includes paying your taxes on time (and not fudging it), paying your debts and tracking where your money goes. Get really grateful for your current life. Treat your current car as lovingly as you will your new luxury car. Use ‘lottowinner’ as your password so you type it multiple times a day Put “Fellow lottery winner” after your partner’s name in your mobile, so when they call you you’ll be like “Yes!”

Lastly, constantly visualise yourself as a rich, lottery winner. Think about how good it will be when you have that cheque in your hand and what you’d do with it.

You may find that when you do these things, good luck starts to manifest in your life. You may win a lucky door prize, or free tickets to the cinema. Keep track of all these wins and be grateful for your good fortune. Know that more is on the way.

As an experiment, I’m going to make a conscious effort to manifest a big multi-million dollar lottery win. To do this, I need to uncover all of my negative beliefs, imagine myself in the “right universe” with a 100% chance of success and consistently feel like a lucky person. I already took action and bought a ticket for tonight’s $15m jackpot. It’s going to happen – it’s just a matter of when!

In the meantime, don’t put your life on hold until you get that big win. Buy a ticket to your success in other areas of your life – send the book proposal, ask for a pay increase, book the dream holiday and love your spouse.

Money only exaggerates who you already are. Prove to the Universe that you are a happy and prosperous person, regardless of the win, and good fortune will come pouring into your life.
