So everything about "The secret", "Positive thinking", Paulo Coehlio books etc. it is all BS?
I do believe positive thinking and the ideas in The Secret are real and legitimate. Ive done this many times with success, however I dont think it works on picking numbers or colors. The Secret is more than just positive thinking. Its spending time to envision what you desire. Not just thinking about a Porsche, but have a photo of it near you that you see often, buying racing gloves and wearing them, going to a race track, test driving a Porsche, talking about Porsches, etc etc. You are creating your destiny by taking actual steps to do something about wanting to own the Porsche. I think picking numbers is a lot different... not impossible. I just dont see how positive thinking on such short time frame for picking numbers would work. Being positive for an upcoming casino trip however is a lot easier.
I'll take my sister as an example. Shes a very negative person and its difficult for me to be around her for any length of time. Have you ever noticed you start losing a game if a certain person is around you? I have! My sister will say "the world is against me" or "just watch, i will lose all my money" or "life is not fair" or "people are mean". All of these negative thoughts.... she is telling the universe these things and then the universe responds exactly how she expects it to.
On the other hand... I say things like "my life is full of abundance" or "i am grateful for the experience" or "i want more love in this relationship". Your mind takes your positive ideas and you find ways to make it happen.
Your mind cannot have a mix of negative and positive thoughts at one time. Its either negative OR positive.
Albert Einstein once said... "Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics."
