Did You Catch Powerball Fever?
What would you do with 800 million?
A few years back I blogged on how changes to the Powerball system would one day produce jackpots worth a billion or more. Looks like we are right on track! If nobody wins tonight's drawing then Wednesday's drawing will surpass a billion dollars. That is shockingly absurd!
Now, I don't mean to be a party pooper but I need to stress that there's no need to to crazy and spend hundreds of dollars on tickets. I know this because I used to be like that. I once spent $300 on tickets several years ago. I won $168, so I lost about half of my investment. Buying large amounts like that will not increase your chances of winning. You would have to spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to drastically increase the odds in your favor. However, I do recommend people at least buy one ticket. Let's face it folks, most of us throw away a few dollars here and there, if not everyday. A three dollar investment is not going to bankrupt you. So at least try to buy one ticket for tonight's drawing. That way you at least have a chance! Remember, you can only win the jackpot with one ticket!
As far as tips go, I've posted several in the past. If you play your lucky numbers then make sure you play them each drawing. There are too many sad stories of that one time a person didn't play and that was when their numbers hit. Keep your tickets someplace safe and check the tickets yourself instead of relying on a store clerk to check them for you. Believe it or not, there are cases where dishonest store clerks have lied to winners and either claimed they didn't win and pocketed the money themselves or claimed the person only won a smaller amount while they kept the difference.
As far as conjure work goes, I'm of the theory that most magical practitioners go about work or spells to win the lottery in the wrong way. I don't believe the method is to try to discern the winning numbers. I feel the way is to try to draw or manifest whatever combination you prefer. I would recommend lodestones and magnets for this. Green candles as well. Any combination of money drawing herbs will suffice. You can also go about it the way that Cynthia Strafford did. She took out a piece of paper and wrote down a random number that she wanted to win, which was 112 million. She meditated on it and when she felt "right" or that she didn't need to mediate anymore, she placed it under her pillow. When the jackpot reached 112 million she had her father go out and buy 2 tickets. She won. Please keep in mind that there are millions of people all putting their desire to win the lottery out into the Universe so there's going to be stiff competition, spiritually and energetic-wise.
Also, keep in mind that it's far more common for a person to have a premonition they will will the jackpot rather than to actively manifest it. One of my favorite of such examples was a young man featured on the TLC show, "Lottery Changed My Life". He was a convenience store cashier. One night he had a dream that he won the jackpot. The next day at work he bought a ticket and then later that day he went around telling his friends and family that he was going to win the jackpot. Of course they laughed him off. But he was right. He won.
So bust out your rabbit's feet and four leaf clovers. Feed your gambling hands and rush out and get you at least one ticket for tonight's drawing. Get excited. Dream a little! And if you win, feel free to send me a donation! :)
***UPDATED***....The jackpot has now climbed to 900 million!
