What Luck!

Creating Good Fortune

It’s been said that “luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” Once in a while, everything comes together and magic happens. Like when you leave the house at exactly the right time to miss traffic, or when you get an intuitive “hit” on when to search for the best airfare or you need to reach someone and at that moment the phone rings and it’s him or her. Most of the time, good fortune is a result of planning and hard work, as well as a bit of luck.

Luck also happens when you apply your meditation and intention to bring about the changes you want in your life. You can tap into the universal forces of good will through a regular yoga and meditation practice. Meditation sharpens your intuitive powers to help you act with awareness, intention and synchronicity. Through your meditative mind, you will be able to create magic and see pathways through any challenge. Then it’s just up to you to seize the opportunities! How lucky can you get?
