In 2007, Cynthia Stafford won the $112 million jackpot in California’s Mega Millions lottery. She wasn’t surprised, however, as she had visualized winning this exact figure for a long time. That’s right – she confessed to using the Law of Attraction to manifest her lottery win.
It’s no wonder that Law of Attraction scholars are often fascinated by the lottery. After all, if you create your own reality, then why not create one in which you win the jackpot? Money represents freedom, and lots of money means you can do whatever you like whenever you like.
Cynthia set about doing that and succeeded. But before we look at the techniques she used, there is one thing we should get out of the way. One thing that makes manifesting a lottery win pretty complicated.
Crushing the odds
As Abraham-Hicks often say to people who ask how they can win the lottery, “you know too much.” And that’s true: we know there can only be one winner out of the tens or hundreds of millions people who play, which almost automatically introduces resistance. That’s why for most, limiting themselves to one avenue of financial abundance (the lottery) is a bad idea.
Think about it: wealth could come to you in so many different ways. You could find a briefcase full of banknotes, sell your business, get an inheritance, find a few Bitcoin you bought years ago, win a lawsuit, and so on.
Even Cynthia admitted that the money could have come from anywhere, but one thing she was sure of – it was going to be $112 million dollars. And the Universe delivered it to her in the shape of a lottery jackpot.
Cynthia Stafford’s lottery winning method
So what did Cynthia do to manifest that $112 million prize? A lifelong belief in the Law of Attraction definitely helped her. But this doesn’t mean she was constantly in a state of allowing. She had to work hard to stay positive and expectant. Here are the 5 techniques she used to attract her Mega Millions win.
- Visualize Winning
As she explained on a morning show, Cynthia picked an amount she felt excited about, wrote it on a piece of paper, “and looked at it all the time.” She would envision herself holding a check while wearing her favorite green top. Incidentally, this is the same green top she wore when picking up her $112 million check.
- Make Friends with Wealth
Cynthia recommends people to study wealth. “Talk to financial advisors, tax attorneys, and people who are rich, if you know any.” She knew how to invest (part of) her fortune long before the money came into her life. She would say and sing “I’m wealthy” several times a day.
- Happiness Habit
“I wake up every day and say to myself: today is a great day,” says Cynthia. “And you know the Happy Song? That’s my song! I sing it all the time.” Cynthia explains that she likes to have fun, and sing and dance with her children.
- Pivot to Positive
“Whatever you focus your attention on, has a way of showing up in your life, for good and for bad,” says Cynthia. That’s why she always looks for the positive and beautiful things in her life, while avoiding the evening news and other negative influences. If she does find herself in a weaker moment, she will find a way to distract herself with something positive.
- Be Your Own Cheerleader
“Don’t be around people that want to pull you down,” warns Cynthia. “Say prayers for them, and keep moving with a smile on your face.” A feeling of self-worth . “We’re here to be powerful; to be the best. See yourself as the best on this planet.”
If we distill Cynthia’s Law of Attraction lottery winning techniques down to its core principle, we arrive not at a strong hope, and not even at a strong conviction. No, Cynthia already knew that she had won. She created a future memory that filled her with so much happiness and self-confidence that she bent the Universe to her will.
