Tips on how use Ayurvedic rituals to improve your luck
The concept of luck is one that can be confusing at times, most people feel like you either have it or you don’t. The typical view is that luck is random and exists outside of ourselves. However, the little known truth about luck is that we contribute to everything we experience in life, even our own luck.
March is the time of year when we hear a lot about luck, pots of gold at the end of rainbows and four-leaf clovers, but what if we told you there is a way to unlock your own luck? At AVYA, we create products, like our Ultimate AVYA Collection, using the most advanced molecular science balanced by harnessing the power of ancient Ayurvedic botanicals to bring you products that leave your skin radiant, nourished and healthy. Our belief in the power of the science of Ayurveda comes from experience that we enjoy sharing with you which is why we want to tell how the Ayurvedic practice of meditation can help you increase your luck.
A study published by psychologist, Richard Wiseman after a ten-year study, asserts that luck is more of a self-fulfilling prophecy than it is some random principle of the world. That is to say that, the luckier you believe you are, the luckier you will be. The luck we experience often boils down to our perception of luck. If you feel unlucky and desire to change that, you can do so by opening yourself up to the idea of changing your thought process through meditation and mindfulness practices.
How meditation can help you become more mindful
Meditation is a practice that can be done anywhere at any time, although it is usually best to practice it in a quiet place. Meditating allows us to strengthen our connection with ourselves. At times, the everyday tasks of our daily life require so much of our time that we start moving on autopilot. Taking time, even just five minutes, to relax and meditate daily can create a world of difference in your ability to focus and achieve any goals you may have.
Studies suggest that optimistic people view themselves and others as more lucky. Meditation is a great time to ask yourself questions and to really get to know why you think certain thoughts. If you’ve been feeling somewhat unlucky, it’s a great time to ask yourself where that thought is stemming from. It is important to realize that we are not our thoughts. It may sound a bit silly at first, but once you realize that you have the ability to observe your thoughts, you understand that you have the power to change your entire thought process which will allow you to begin seeing changes in your life - and even your luck!
It is important to acknowledge that, in life, undesirable events will occur. However, how we frame those events shapes the extent to which we focus on the positive or negative aspects. You have the power to change your perception.
2 Ways to Increase Luck
- Find a quiet space where you can sit or lie down.
- Close your eyes.
- Focus on your breathing - breath naturally.
- Reflect. A good way to increase your luck would be to reflect on all of the ways that you are lucky. For instance, if you’ve read this blog post that means you have vision and you have access to the internet. Those things may seem insignificant, but the truth is that many people who don’t have those things would see you as being lucky for having them. When we look at the world through a lens of gratitude, our luck expands. You can find a list of guided gratitude mantras that may be helpful here.
Random Acts of Kindness
The truth is that you can become lucky by essentially becoming luck itself. Simple acts of kindness and gratitude to others can create a ripple effect of kindness in your life. This is the principle of karma. When you see someone in need of help, lend a hand. Give a compliment to a stranger just to brighten their day. Doing things to bring joy to others or to create a feeling of luck for them, will attract more joy and feelings of luck in your own life.
