Are you Attracting/Repelling Good Fortune?



  • Think about your life as a whole - love, career, prosperity, health etc. for a moment.

    Now close your eyes and think of any number between one and forty-two (inclusive). You may even feel drawn to more than one number.

    Refer to that number on the positve/negative list below and it will tell you something about your attitude towards and approach to life. If you feel you incline towards the negative aspect, try thinking the opposite way. For one day, work on developing the attracting quality of the pair below. If you notice yourself doing something that repels good fortune, success, opportunity and abundance, simply place a positive, attracting thought or action alongside the negative, repelling thought. Change yourself change your life!

I appreciate and thank you for your love and understanding and the way you have been a beacon and a help to the many who come in here.

  • Thank you capt I like sunshine am going to print this list & then I am going to share it with a few people that need it. This is an awesome list and the numbers that struck me were 24 & 33



  • Abundance comes to me easily and freely!

    Abundance is a state of mind!

    I nurture the universe and it nurtures me!

    Abundance for me and abundance for you!

    I stay in the flow of clearing and receiving!

    I am a good person!

    The thought I nurture most grows!

    My destiny is joy!

    All I need I already have!

    I am BLESSED!

    I am grateful!



  • Blmoon,

    that is another thing I will print and save. This year has been a pretty sad but enlightening year for me. I want to start the New Year with different feelings and ideas that I leave this one. Thanks.



  • Thank you for posting this, Captain !



  • This is a good way to find out why you tried for something and failed. You just think of the situation - maybe it's that you missed out on a job, pay rise, opportunity, or person you wanted - and then think of a number between 1 and 42 (inclusive). One response I had from the list was that I failed to give myself permission to have the thing I wanted. It seems an odd thing that you would not allow yourself to have what you desire. But we often receive negative ideas about love or money or whatever as we grow up (when our minds are so impressionable) and carry these opinions from other people around with us as if they were ours. We need to check which beliefs about life actually come from us and which don't, so we can release the ones that don't serve us.
