what is luck? do we all at times in our life span benefit from such a “chance” happening at various times in our lives, possibly sometimes not even recognizing it as the good fortune of LUCKY luck?..sometimes we become so misinformed at what it means to be “lucky” that we ignore all the beautiful wonderful attributes that go into this magical serendipity of happening..
the text book definition for luck is : To gain success or something desirable by chance, To attempt something without knowing if one will be successful., The chance happening of fortunate or adverse events; fortune..
I was shuffling my GYPSY WITCH CARDS and out popped the extra joker and the lighting card, sending me the message of lucky strike which got me thinking of what it actually means to be lucky.. for my fortune could be your misfortune, and vise versa because that’s just how shit rolls..
we are so distorted with our extended perception when we limit our mind by our own unloving perception of something unexplainable..sometimes we only view luck to be a positive happening when in actuality there can be a lot of things that look and feel unluckful yet in hindsight offers much and many blessings of luck than that of what felt for a time like a curse..
we are consumed with so much ego that we are unaware of the vast and richness of divine intervention that grants us opportunity of chance and fortune when least expected, sometimes for the hard dedicated work that we put in to something, and sometimes just as simple as a because..
one might think that I am lucky or unlucky for that matter with love, because I have had the opportunity for relationships failed and successful and have been married for a 3rd time..i am beyond lucky that I met my third husband out of a chance meeting years before when he was just a boy from the banana fields that I worked closely with, and luck struck again when he saw my photo on facebook many many years later and took the chance and messaged me..
was that a stroke of luck with the fragrance of divine guidance for not ever closing off my heart when I failed at love, countless amounts of time destructive with my heart yet never gave up with my soul and spirit putting myself out there always knowing love was going to match one day the love within, even as wounded and scared as it was..was it a combination to all the connections that I never turned my back on that the universe granted me a lucky strike..
sometimes we are granted opportunities and what we choose to do with it is solely up to us..how often do you let go of a chance happening because you couldn’t see the beauty of the gift within because the packaging wasn’t what you expected it to look like and how you wanted it to be so instead you choose to dismiss it without ever giving it more than a second of your time, then finding the time to complain about your situations and how nothing ever happens for you..im sure we have all had lucky encounters yet dismissed them due to the conflict of infatuation we have for ourselves and what we believe we are entitled for..
I have started to pay more attention to the luckiness of my surroundings, even when they come perceived as something that scares the living shit out of me giving off a sense of not so lucky instead..im trying to react different to places, spaces, people that are being sent based on the inner and spiritual work I am doing while trying to cultivate a better understanding and outcome in order to welcome it instead of washing the intention away instead..its probably the hardest personal work to do because it forces you to trust have faith and be vulnerable, surrendering all the common beliefs and misconceptions away simply remaining open and exposed..
so I take these two cards with stride, of a surprise happening, lucky opportunity and focus on the higher greater institution of guidance..sometimes the greatest achievement is to simply except the request at hand being open and remaining patient while in the meantime doing the work that continues to be needed to be done..
may you all find the glimmer of luck in the most unpredictable beautiful magical ways..peace love faith hope
