Three Tips to Attract Good “Luck” Today,

Friday the 13th

(And every day)

By Marilyn Jenett

As a teacher of prosperity principles based on mental and spiritual laws, I want to take this opportunity to show you that these laws trump all notions, all superstitions, all beliefs that are not aligned with your highest good — including the belief in “luck” — good or bad.

I often say that the “supernatural” is really quite natural once you understand the working of the laws. Miracles can happen every day when you become aware of their origin and realize you have a major role in creating them — by aligning yourself with the Power that bestows them.

On the other hand, students of the laws of mind know what happens when we are not properly aligned with this creative Intelligence but instead give our power away to lesser forces.

The following three “lucky” tips will ensure that you are embraced and protected by Lady Luck today, Friday the 13th, and every other calendar day in the year — in spite of any black cats, ladders or problematic mirrors you happen to encounter.

Lucky Tip #1

Your Subconscious Mind Cannot Tell the Difference
Between a Real and an Imagined ActFirst, let’s look at the dictionary definitions of LUCK:

1. The force that seems to operate for good or ill in a person’s life, as in shaping circumstances, events, or opportunities
2. Good fortune; advantage or success, considered as the result of chance
3.  A combination of circumstances, events, etc., operating by chance to bring good or ill to a person
4. Some object on which good fortune is supposed to depend

Luck is obviously attributed to accident or chance — unpredictable and beyond our control. When we delve into the area of mental and spiritual laws and the practical laws of manifestation, we come to understand that there is a very sound explanation for what appears to be “luck.”

Among the important prosperity laws I teach is this one: The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a real and an imagined act. When we visualize and focus our mind on a specific desire, the subconscious mind will accept it as fact and begin the creative process of attracting it to us. Even a charm, talisman or object thought to have occult powers is nothing more than a tangible symbol that convinces the subconscious mind that you are manifesting your desire — it creates heightened expectation and results follow.

But this same principle also applies to curses and objects intended to create harm. This can only affect us if we allow it to do so through lack of understanding and awareness. A wholehearted belief in your safety and divine protection will ensure it.

Lucky Tip #2

If You Don’t Want It, Don’t Say ItYour Word Is Your Wand is the title of a book by New Thought teacher, Florence Scovel Shinn. I coined my own phrase to get the message across to my students: “If you don’t want it, don’t say it!”

In the beginning lessons of the Feel Free to Prosper teachings, the primary purpose is to help my students come to a clear-cut understanding and grasp just how powerful their word is — the spoken word, and especially the written word.

Our words become our claim — the imprinting of our desires on Universal Mind Substance. Our word is the bridge between our heartfelt desires and the Intelligence that has the ways and means, the know-how to turn our words into “flesh.”

Our word produces tangible form when we make — and stake — our claim with faith and expectation. Our word is the manifesting mechanism in our fulfillment factory. 

Why would you ever use the incredible power of your words to create what you do not want?

Start now to eliminate any and all words in your vocabulary that represent and perpetuate a belief in bad luck, being unlucky, or in outside forces that can influence your luck.

Your words never stop working for you. The Law never stops working for you. And you can’t stop using it. But you can keep using it to manifest what you do not want. Or you can learn to use it purposefully and in alignment with the abundance that universally exists for everyone, including you.

Right now, boldly make this claim: Something lucky is happening for me today!

Lucky Tip #3

Count Those Blessings — And Receive More

An “attitude of gratitude” and the appreciation for the gifts we receive from the universe open the channels for more good to be received. The more gratitude we feel, the more we attract to be grateful for. What we focus on increases and expands. The more we complain, the more we will attract to complain about. The more we express our gratitude, the more we are giving the subconscious and Universal Mind the message that we have much to be grateful for, and we keep attracting more. Let’s take this a step further. I want to show you how to use gratitute to attract all the “luck” you want…

The subconscious mind will create for us and attract to us those circumstances that it accepts to be true in the present moment. That is its nature. It’s compulsive. Our job is to condition our subconscious mind to accept what we want as if it’s an existing reality. Tomorrow never comes. It is always the present moment or now in consciousness. When what we call later or tomorrow arrives, it will actually still be the present moment. It is always NOW. And what we are thinking and feeling NOW is what determines our future, its outcomes and experiences. We create that future right this moment.

Let me ask you this… If you were in possession of your desired good, what else would you be feeling besides your joy or security in having what you want? If suddenly you experienced a lucky “windfall” or found the right job or new clients or finally had that new car or were free of your physical ailment, what emotion would fill your consciousness? Gratitude.

If the subconscious responds and acts on what we feel in the present moment, then in order to feel like we already have what we want, what feeling would we need to create?  Gratitude.

Gratitude is one of the surest ways to bring your desires — your “good luck” into the present moment. It’s the magnet that reaches out into Universal Mind and pulls our good to us. Like the power of our words, gratitude is another bridge between our desire and its manifestation. But more than that, gratitude is the umbilical cord that connects us to our Universal parent. If you will replace any doubtful thoughts, begging prayers or fear of bad luck with a heart full of gratitude, you will be thrilled at how fast you’ll learn to manifest your desires — and more and more good luck into your life.

The Simplest ‘Good Luck’ Prayer:

If the only prayer you say in your life is “thank you,” that would suffice.

—Christian Mystic Meister Eckhart.

My Life-Changing Friday the 13thOn Friday the 13th, in April 1984, my diligent studies of prosperity laws paid off. At 3am — the wee hours of the morning — I went to a local newsstand to find the morning edition of the Los Angeles Times. And there I was — featured on the cover page in a story about my new business. One of the largest newspapers in America had made a huge mistake — instead of placing the normal front page news section on top, they had placed the View section with my story on top. About 14,000 million people opened their front doors that morning and saw me staring up at them. The article was then picked up by the Associated Press and went around the world.

Thousands of phone calls from that article resulted in my 20-year career and confirmed that Friday the 13th will always be a celebration of my breakthrough to prosperity consciousness.

Is it luck? Of course not. It’s law.
