St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and you don’t need a leprechaun to conjure up a little good luck. All you need is to energetically draw your desires to you. Some may call this manifestation; others may view it as a calling on the universe. In any case, If you’re tired of carrying four-leaf clovers, horseshoes, and other superstitious charms, K&T is giving you 5 tips to help you create your own good luck this St. Patrick’s Day.
Keep a gratitude jar or journal
One way to cultivate positivity and create the luck you want is to keep track of what you’re grateful for. This can be done by writing down one thing you are grateful for on a piece of paper and placing it in a jar of your choice.
You can fill it with as many notes as you want throughout the day or place a new one in daily. Make the process even more fun by decorating or painting your jar so that it feels more personal and expressive.
If creating a gratitude jar isn’t your style, you can achieve the same effect with a gratitude journal. Simply take some time each day to jot down what you are grateful for. Whether you got a promotion at work, or a friend came through for you in a time of need, this sets the tone for your mood for the rest of the day.
According to the field of Positive Psychology, “gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness.”
Words have power. When you go back and look at the words you’ve written in your journal or placed in your jar, you’ll feel proud of all that you have, and you’ll be more capable of walking through the world with a positive mindset and the ability to draw in abundance.
Meditation is an ancient mindfulness technique that has gained a resurgence thanks to the popularity of mindfulness and self-care practices. A great advantage of meditation is that you can do it anywhere at any time.
Start by picking a time of day to center yourself and clear your mind of distractions and negative self-talk. This can help you become more in tune with yourself and your heart’s desires. Additional benefits of practicing meditation include but are not limited to:
- Developing the ability to manage stress.
- Helping you to focus on the present.
- Increasing creativity and visualization.
The mayo clinic also points out that practicing meditation can help to control:
By practicing meditation, you’re putting yourself on the path to peacefulness and successful manifestation.
Tap into crystal magic
For centuries, people have used Crystals for religious practices and to activate and balance the energy centers throughout their bodies. Thanks again to popular metaphysical and intuitive practices of today, crystals are still being used for various forms of healing and balance. In fact, each crystal is meant for a different purpose. For instance, Rose Quartz promotes love while Green Jade can be used to help promote luck and the abundance of money.
Depending on which crystal you select, they can help to promote positive energy, healing, prosperity, and protection. They can also be used to help unblock your chakras, clearing the pathway for positive expression and good luck to flow overall.
Recite positive affirmations for good luck
Good luck is received by acting as though you already have it, embodying what you want to become. Positive affirmation can put you in the mindset to do just that. For example, if you’re giving a speech that you’re nervous about, you can give yourself a pep talk with language such as, “I’m gonna crush that speech.” If you’re not feeling particularly attractive, try standing in your bathroom mirror and saying, “I’m beautiful inside and out.”
Psychology shows that positive affirmations help to reduce negative thoughts. Repeating positive affirmations helps to get your mind and spirit on the same page and if you connect to the affirmations, soon you’ll start to believe them. This will bring you confidence that will allow you to attract what you want in life.
Engage in passion projects
The pandemic gave us a lot of time to cultivate new hobbies and passion projects such as bread-making, cooking, crafting, podcasting, etc. Having hobbies can help to reduce stress and even improve your ability to be social.
Whatever your niche passion project may be, you can harness the energy of doing what you love to attract all that you desire. Whether you decide to help the masses by writing a self-help book, starting a podcast, or selling homemade soaps and candles, your unique talents are all your own. New opportunities of all kinds can be born from leaning into your talents.
This St. Patrick’s Day (and every day thereafter), don’t spend your time worried about superstitious behaviors and good luck charms. Instead, lean into your own power with these useful tips.
