How to Increase Your Winning Luck

(This is not to encourage you to gamble, but to teach you how to use and practise the law of attraction, which you can use this method in other aspects of life.)

Most people consider the lottery as purely a game of chance and luck. The statistical chance of winning the lottery is a staggering 14 million to 1 chance! However, more and more people have been trying different techniques to try and increase their chance of winning the lottery.
Not just mathematical and statistical analysis of the numbers or logical number picking systems, but more esoteric methods - methods to open up the mind, increase awareness and align your mind with the "universal source" or "universal consciousness".
A lot of this thinking came about due to the growing popularity of the law of attraction after the hit movie "The Secret". The law of attraction on a most basic level states that:
"Your thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate your reality whether you are aware of it or not, and so whatever you think about you will manifest into your life"
This is a powerful statement, it basically means that we are in control of our lives and what we think about and the action we take dictates our lives.
The movie was full of examples of how people had changed their thought processes to attract some amazing things into their life - everything from improving health, to being successful in business, attracting partners, and of course attracting houses, cars, and attracting and winning money in abundance.
Over the last few years this has led to an explosion in this line of thinking, and a LOT of people trying all sorts of methods to not only get success with the law of attraction, but to try and boost their results in terms of speed and quality.
3 Elements Required For Using the Law of Attraction to Win the Lottery
There are some really strong tools you can use to really turbo charge your results and align your mind for success, but there are some basics which everyone should start with - some simple principles and "Law of Attraction Rules". There are 3 main areas, and to be successful you need to cover all 3 bases:
1. Conscious Thought

This element is often considered the core of the law of attraction, and is the element most described in the movie "The Secret". This basically means consciously willing things into existence with the power of your mind. This can be done in a number of ways:
  • Positive affirmations: Affirmations are statements you repeat to yourself to affirm something to be true. In terms of winning the lottery you might repeat statements such as "I am a lottery winner, I have won the lottery, I am enjoying my lottery winnings" etc. The idea is that these statements sink into your mind gradually and slowly change your beliefs, and help attract your target into your life.
  • Visualization: This can be a powerful tool. Simply taking 10 minutes out, closing your eyes, and visualizing your result can have a powerful effect on the mind. To do it properly you should start by visualizing yourself in the future with the result you want already achieved - i.e. see yourself with that winning lottery ticket, or looking into a full bank account, or holding a large cheque. Then take this further, imagine what you would be wearing, what you would be saying, how you would be feeling - adding these extra layers to your visualization is like turning up the intensity and makes it more real.
  • Positive thinking: Simply thinking over and over about the result you want. This is similar to visualization, except that you can just take a couple of minutes here and there throughout your day and think about the result you are trying to bring.- by repeating positive thinking throughout your day you gradually cement your desires in your mind.

2. Physical Action

Making physical changes in your life is the next another key element. Often text on the law of attraction only touches on this subject. People are happier to believe that if they just make a small change to their thoughts that things will naturally fall into place. However, just like anything in life, if you really want it you have to take action yourself.

The action will vary depending upon what you want to attract into your life. It could be taking time to actually practice your public speaking skills, but in terms of trying to win the lottery it will be simple acts such as obviously buying a lottery ticket for a start, but also perhaps sitting down to meditate for a few minutes on some possible numbers, perhaps analysing the previous recent winning numbers.
3. Unconscious Thoughts

This is a critical element, but it is sadly the area that 99% of people fail to cover, and possibly why the law of attraction isn't working for you. This is often the missing piece in the puzzle - people take some physical action, they repeat some affirmations, consciously think about their wishes, yet they do not take any steps to ensure their unconscious mind is also working with them.

Often the subconscious mind can get stuck in old patterns of thinking, promote unhealthy behaviors, and harbor long term negative and limiting beliefs. When working with the law of attraction - and especially trying to attract money or a lottery win this is crucial. You must believe 100% that it is possible, not only must your conscious thoughts be focused for success, but so must your unconscious mind. You need to stimulate your subconscious to make sure it is 100% aligned to your conscious goals, otherwise these negative and limiting subconscious beliefs will hold you back, and even sabotage your success.

There are a few ways you can make sure your subconscious mind is aligned for success, but one which is increasing in popularity is the use of subliminal messages.

Once a niche area, subliminals are becoming more and more popular and widely used. In simple terms they are a tool you can use to help send positive messages into your subconscious mind. They gradually start to build up; eliminating negative thought patterns and replacing them with positive thoughts and self beliefs.
The real benefit is that you can get a
subliminal audio album for nearly everything imaginable. From confidence to motivation, and weight loss to, you guessed it - winning the lottery!

Winning the lottery because of subliminal messages might sound strange but the principle is very simple - as described above the album works to align your thoughts to winning the lottery, to open your mind to help you pick winning numbers, and to bring money to you according to principles of the law of attraction.
If you want to attract a lottery win into your life then give the album a try here and see for yourself, or if you are new to subliminal messaging you can try a free album and experience the power of subliminal messages risk free.

Fruits and vegetables for good health of hearts

Malaysia government is actively promoting the importance of having healthy heart via advertisements on TVs and radios recently to create awareness among the public. Beside exercises, fruits and vegetables play an important role to help reducing heart disease.

In the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)-Heart Study, it was found that people who consumed at least eight portions of fruits and vegetables a day had a 22% less risk of dying from heart disease compared to those who ate fewer than three portions a day. A portion of fruit weighed 80g is equivalent to a small banana, a medium apple or a small carrot. The study published online in January this year in the European Heart Journal studied over 300,000 men and women without any history of heart attack or stroke from eight European countries. The results revealed that every one portion increment in fruit and vegetable intake was associated with a 4% lower risk of fatal heart disease.
It has been postulated that various antioxidant micronutrients contained in fruits and vegetables reduce atherosclerosis – process of cholesterol plaque formation and buildup in the walls of the arteries – caused by oxidative damage. However, findings from large scale studies looking at effects of these antioxidant micronutrients on the heart have not supported this hypothesis. Proponents of antioxidants have argued that taking supplements such as those used in these studies are not the same as having the whole fruit or vegetable because there are many other components in fruits and vegetables that may confer protective effect on the heart.
Before we start having eight portions of fruits and vegetables, consider some of the following recommendations recommended by the American Heart Association:
-          Have eight of more fruit and vegetable serving every day. An average adult consuming 2,000 calories daily should aim for 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables a day
-          Take fruits and vegetables of different colours
-          Add fruits and vegetables to the foods we love
-          Enjoy fruit-based desserts
-          Use healthy cooking method. Roasting, steaming baking and microwaving vegetables are ideal preparation methods
What fruits should we go for? Most fruits are good for our hearts but just avoid the sweet ones if you have diabetes as there is natural sugar in fruits. The ones that are generally good are the ones rich in antioxidants such as pomegranate, red grapefruit, blueberries, kiwi fruit, red and purple grapes.

Home cures for common illnesses

Many of us tend to run to a doctor at the slightest sign of ill-health. But drugs do not guarantee a cure. In fact, some medicines may do more harm than good. Taking antibiotics for a simple bout of diarrhoea for instance, may aggravate your condition.
Simple ailments like coughs and colds, headaches, sore throat and constipation can easily be treated at home at minimum cost and maximum safety. Drugs are not always necessary as our body has its own natural defences to fight off diseases. So why take unnecessary risks?
I myself have stopped seeing doctor for the past 6 or 7 years and have also never taken any sick leave.
Below are some natural home remedies for several mild health problems.
1) Colds and flu

 You don't need to see a doctor for these unless they last for more than a week or are accompanied by fever.

- Take plenty of water and have adequate rest.

- Eat lots of fruits like oranges (or drink the juice) and guava.

- To relieve blocked nose, take deep breaths of hot water vapour for 15 minutes several times a day. All you have to do is sit on a chair with a bucket of hot water at your feet. Cover your head over the bucket with a sheet and breathe in the rising vapour. Alternatively, you can put a little salt water in your cupped hands and sniff it into the nose. Or breathe in the scent of crushed or chopped garlic several times a day.

- Crush some ginger and extract 1 teaspoon of the juice. Sweeten with honey and take this three times a day for four days.

2) Coughs

Coughing is our body's way of getting rid of phlegm and germs in the throat or lungs. Medicines are usually not necessary unless symptoms persist or there's blood in the phlegm.
- Drink plenty of plain water.

- Breathe in hot water vapour to clear the nose.

- Have 1 to 2 glassfuls of plain cabbage juice a day.

- Boil three carrots for 15 minutes, extract the juice and mix it with water to make half a glassful. Drink hot five or six times a day.

     3) Fever

Mild fevers are not life-threatening. You can easily bring the temperature down without having to see a doctor.
      - Remove all clothing or wear loose clothes made from thin material so that your body gets lots of fresh air.
      - Get someone to fan your body. It helps lower the body temperature.
      - Sponge the whole body with a wet towel. If this is not possible sponge the chest and forehead constantly till fever subsides.
      - Take soft foods like porridge and soft-boiled rice, and drink plenty of plain water or fruit juices.
      - Wash a fistful of green peas thoroughly and let them dry. Fry without oil, place in a cup, add cold water and leave for a while before drinking.
4) Headaches and migraine
- Boil a handful of kangkung and then pound till fine. Pour a glass of water over it, add a pinch of salt, strain and drink the solution

- Apply thinly sliced potatoes on forehead. Replace with fresh ones as they dry up.

- Cut a lemon in half. apply each half to each temple and hold them in place for 10-15 minutes with handkerchief or scarf bound round your head

5) Sorethroat

- Put 1 teaspoonful salt in a glass of warm water and gargle.

6) Constipation

- Drink plenty of water.

- Eat lots of fruits (especially papaya), vegetables and foods rich in fibre, eg wholemeal bread.

- Boil 1kg carrots in a litre of water for 2 hours. Then, blend in a liquidiser or rub through a sieve. Drink the soup.

7) Diarrhoea

- Drink plenty of water.

- Oral rehydration therapy (ORT) may also help. Put 2 level tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a litre of boiled water (you can add 1/2 cup orange juice or a little lemon juice if you like). Drink every five minutes day and night until you begin to urinate properly. A child may need to drink at least 1 litre a day.

- Drink plain, strong tea (you may add fried cummin seeds or lime juice to it).

- For babies, boil poppy seeds (kas-kas), grind and mix with milk.
8) Mumps
NOT dangerous in young children and swellings usually go away by themselves in 2 weeks. Mumps leave a strong, natural, active immunity so your child seldom gets a second attack.

- Give him plenty of water to drink and also soft food that he can eat easily. 
As can be seen from the above remedies, water play a very important role in curing sickness, therefore we have to make sure that we drink enough water daily to prevent illness and maintain our vitality.

Lapis Lazuli Light: Refined salt 精盐(白盐)

Is refined salt suitable for seasoning?
All the organic sodium chlorides the body needs can be found in raw vegetables. Salt not only slows down the digestion, but also increases the burden on the kidney. Varicose veins and hardening of arteries are the results of an excessive intake of salt.
Natural sea salt is a substitute for refined salt
Natural sea salt contains 92 kinds of important dietary minerals, classified as trace elements, which can pass through human body’s membrane and cell wall freely, therefore they can be absorbed easily by the human body, achieve balance of electrolyte, and have the effect of energizing body.


Lapis lazuli light: Refined sugar and molasses白糖与糖蜜

Refined Sugar
Sugar is not only responsible for tooth-decay, but robs vitamin B from the body, disturbs calcium metabolism, and has a deleterious effect of the nervous system. Doctors have found that children who are allowed to have all the sweets they want become irritable and nervous. Once the sweets are removed, they are again well-behaved and poised. In the world of adults, nervousness, periodic depression, suspicion and even nervous breakdowns can be attributed to the eating of sugar. One of the most popular “myths” regarding sugar is the belief that it is an “energy food”. Actually, white sugar is not a food, but a catalyst for burning what the body already has. Its effect on the body is very much like that of alcohol.
Molasses: It is the by-product of making white sugar.
Sugar cane is actually a grass, nutritious if eaten whole. In the making of white sugar, all the nutritious parts, vitamins and minerals are concentrated in the molasses, including vanadium. Vanadium can help the breakdown of cholesterol. Those with high cholesterol can take one tablespoonful of molasses per day.
