Today is your lucky day

“Scientists have calculated that the chances of something so patently absurd actually existing are millions to one. But magicians have calculated that million-to-one chances crop up nine times out of ten.”—Terry Pratchett

February 24 has always been my lucky day.

One year, my butter cake landed the blue ribbon in the Ellsworth County 4-H Fair. Another Feb 24, I won the school spelling bee. Yet another, a really hot guy invited me to dinner.

The point is, I began to notice a pattern and the wins, the joyous events started pouring in. Every year, something out of the ordinary and highly-desirable occurred.

I was thinking about this last night, wondering what cool gift was going to stop by for a visit this February 24 when it struck me. My A.A. 2.0 program, my ritual of starting every morning with “Something extraordinarily epic is going to happen to me today” is sorta the same thing.

Richard Wiseman, psychology professor at the University of Hertfordshire in England, spent eight years studying lucky people. He finally concluded that getting all the good breaks has nothing to do with karma or kismet and everything to do with how we see ourselves. He even started what he calls “Luck School” to teach people to be more lucky.

The quantum field, as you know, is an infinite mashup of superpositions or possibilities. It isn’t until the waves are measured–or observed–that they coalesce into one material reality, thus destroying the original configuration where “all is possible.”

Once we decide that “today is my lucky day,” we collapse that wave and the rest of the countless superpositions are no longer available to us.

It’s only 8:25 here, but already I got a lucky break when reading ACIM Lesson 55, another review. It more or less provides a summary (the elevator speech that everybody expects you to have) of what the Course is all about:

1. The very fact that I see disease, disaster and death is proof that I do not understand God. In other words, crazy world (when I happen to collapse those waves) is an illusion.

2. As love returns to my awareness, I will see a world of peace and safety and joy. To that, I shout “bring it!!”

So today (and I hope you’ll join me in this), I anoint myself lucky. And I declare that something extraordinarily epic is destined to happen to me today.

  3. In 2012 I found myself becoming awakened during a horrible divorce that I did not see coming. Imagine that. 🤔🤔 My sister sent me E2 and a few other gospel type books. Life has absolutely been one gift after another after another….Thank you Pam.

  4. Pam! This is the very “bestest” ( as my small kids used to say) post EVER!!!! I am going to paint the smiling sun attached to your message today, paint it with crayons that I just bought for my artist self, after reading E3. Thank you!!!! HEART U!

  5. Thank you for the inspiration! Today is my lucky day where all is possible. I anoint myself lucky. And I declare that something extraordinarily epic is destined to happen to me today! Hallelujah!

  6. hey Pam have you heard of the book “the power of now”? one of my coworker talked about it last night.

  7. Pam Grout you are fabulous!! I am so lucky to have found you! I anoint myself lucky from this day forward, and I can’t wait to see what the universe brings me each and every lucky day of my life 😊Amen! Bless you Pam for blessing us so abundantly with your magical, delightful presence so often here via cyberspace. How lucky are we?! 😁🍀🌝💖

  8. I made up a sign of these words and posted them on my bedroom door where I see them each morning,an aver aloud this magical incantation. I instantly feel the FP energizing to bring me something delightful- and it always delivers!

  9. I was running all day having the best day so I’m late getting here but just the same, I’m lucky I found your books and this explanation of ACIM. My daughter asked someone how they kept winning everything and that friend said she expected to win so she did. Now my daughter does it. 🙂 I’m still getting there but so much better than years ago. I’m not an Eeyore anymore. Thanks for sharing all your understanding.

  10. bem no final do seu livro tive com colapso, vi que Deus dizia, calma voce fez tudo certo, o que aconteceu agora foi que voce colapsou, e realmente tive uma paz imensa dentro do meu ser.
