March 5, 2018- Making a Choice to be Strong

Hello March,

You arrived covered in snow, and I am just opening up reluctantly, as I am someone from the South, not used to these temperatures!

I need a Miracle, and loads of Good Luck, because clearly, the task I have seems Herculean; and I feel ready to hibernate instead of going faster and becoming more effective…

So, what is your advice?

Go and enroll to the gym?

Yes, ok.

Anything else?

Go kiss someone

Like who?

Get out in the street and kiss the first person?

Yes, why not?

Do something spontaneous and crazy

I am doing that most of the time, and then I am afraid of the consequences.

Yes but doesn’t it feel good?

It does; so I will…

What if I puss away the people around me?

You will make space for others who are closer to you

Ok, how about going to the hairdresser?

That would do…

I would like to be in touch with other creative people

Then what are you waiting for?

How about reinforcing your strengths instead of working on your weaknesses?

That’s a good point…

It could take less time…

How about getting yourself a prize?

And helping out someone else?

Thanks March, that seems helpful 🙂

January 7, 2017- Inviting Luck: opportunity and preparation

Hello January,

any ideas about how to invite Luck to take a permanent residence at my place? And get her to work for me? Or is there a quality of super luck to develop as a character trait?

A wise person must have said that “luck is when preparation meets opportunity”

So if I want better results I might start doing things which were considered impossible for my 2016 self.

One idea that stuck with me ever since the first day of 2017 is that I need to align my different goals so that they don’t seem to contradict each other.

If for example, I wish for a great job, I shouldn’t feel that I should sacrifice my personal life to it. Or do I secretly feel that you can’t have everything you want/need and that you have to pay for whatever good comes your way?

So the first thing is to feel I deserve good things, and that they could stick together. If I want to deserve them, I can spread good luck around me. There are plenty of ways to do that.

August 12, 2015- It is raining stars tonight!

Hello August,

we are expecting a rain of stars tonight with a peak of meteorites showing off during dawn! What do you mean you know? Oh, yes, you are right 😉 I will be staring at the sky at about 5.00 i the morning, or at least this is my plan. And I mean to make wishes in order to maximize the chances, so I prepare my list.

So, I would  urge my friends to do the same. You don’t want to see all these stars falling with an enormous luck potential and stare speechless, not knowing exactly what to wish? When I was a child, I was told a beautiful story about a man whose Luck was sleeping at the top of the mountain; to make a long story short, he went through a lot of trouble in order to wake her up. On his way home, many opportunities for love, power and material success presented themselves but he was close to all of them. He was not willing to change his perspective. So, he ended up being devoured by a lion who was told that it needed to eat the stupidest person alive in order to check its enormous appetite.

Here you are April, open your eyes and say yes to opportunities you were not expecting! Make a list of wishes, but if something beautiful comes along the way, say: why not?

Barry Simmons at Lake Martin, Alabama caught this Perseid meteor in 2013.  Notice the colors!  The Perseids are known to be colorful meteors.

thanks to http://earthsky.org/tonight/peak-night-for-the-perseid-meteor-shower, an idea of what it might look like.

November 16- How to make your own luck and just in case, how to pray for a miracle

Dear November,

I am ready to go to bed after a rainy day in Paris, and dividing my time between my favorite cafés and meetings with certain artists I would like to work with.

As I finally returned home, I started browsing some web pages and came up to “How to make your own luck” and the advice given seemed quiet interesting:

a. Be assertive and proactive

b. Believe in a goal

c. Put deadlines on your goals

d. Expect great lucky ideas to occur to you, but do not worry, if you’re not inspired right now.

e. Raise your expectations

f. Work smarter, not harder

g. Seek new experiences

h. Be positive

i. Persist!

And in case this doesn’t work, there is always another possibility 🙂

How to pray to God for a miracle:

a. Visualize clearly what you want

b Take a moment to calm yourself and connect with God

c. Believe that you already received when you prayed

d. Let it go

f. Alternate Method for Quicker Results (just ask, and see what happens)
