When you buy a lottery ticket you may be doing more than wasting your cash; you might just be buying into negative karma
During the Great Recession, lottery ticket sales have skyrocketed. Why is the lottery a last resort ?
BY MARY GIUFFRE — The monetary system that rules our planet is a mind-made invention that truly has no basis in anything tangible, or the fundamental denizens of the universe.
On the great, big greed scale that has become the sum of our existence, it’s a way for our egos to keep track of who the ‘haves’ are, and rank everyone else.
We’ve been led to believe that our hopes, dreams and desires in this life are directly tied to the green stuff, kind of like those tubes that feed the pods in the movie, The Matrix.
As a Feng Shui practitioner, I’ve observed that the No. 1 subject that most of my clients ask me is how to acquire more money.
But when it comes to discussing what’s in their bank account? Most would rather clean a septic tank.
People may not want to talk about what they have, but they never mind sharing what they want!
No matter how much cash people have, they’re always seeking more. They complain that they work hard for too little. When they get it, they either hoard it or spend it. Either way they’re afraid that they don’t have enough, so everything monetary becomes a vicious repetitive cycle rather than a free flowing exchange.
Money is an energy
Money is just a thing, and all things can be vehicles for energy. As thought patterns are energy, you can use this vehicle to drive a financial flow in any direction you choose. What you believe about the economic state of the world or your personal wealth can be positive or negatively charged by you.
So, which direction a
re you steering your cash flow?
Judging by the record sales of lottery tickets, many are gambling on a mass Ponzi scheme — or what economists call ‘the greater fool theory.’
From an odds perspective, purchasing a lottery ticket is irrational. The more tickets sold, the higher the jackpot — and the less likely it is that your number will come up. But millions of people line up at kiosks in wretched anticipation of the big one. I mean, win.
The trouble is, the anxious low-level energy stimulated by these desperate lottery ticket purchases becomes a spinning vortex of doom that is attached to the windfall. Unfortunately, the prize-winner goes home with the negative energy of all the desperation and destroyed dreams that was accumulated over the course of the buying frenzy. PLUS all the disappointment attached to the loss. A whole lot of bad vibes accompany that cash, so it’s rare when big lottery winners do well for an extended period of time.
Bartering is better karma
Barter on the other hand is my very favourite form of currency. An equal exchange of goods or services is a balanced and harmonious energetic transaction. This agreeable state uplifts the parties involved and because of the nature of energy it is beneficial to everything on the planet. The state of our financial world has barter making a graceful come back, and I am all for it.
The fortunate minority who have discovered the ecstatic qualities of the money machine are not necessarily the rich and famous, but those who’ve come to understand that money, like everything else in our universe, deserves to be empowered with respect rather than adoration and responds to nurturing and not abuse.
We enter and exit this planet with absolutely nothing but our vast and expanding spirits, pure divine energy connected to the rest of the complex energetic system. When it comes to our financial abundance it’s up to us to positively charge and direct the energetic flow.
By opening our minds and hearts to uplifting energies, we change our thinking. Our vibration rises from doubt and fear to that of abundance and prosperity. We vibrate in sync with our divinity and the world’s treasury becomes our own.
