The Science of Being Lucky

We all go times of doubt and anxiety. Am I in the right job or relationship? Am I leading the best life that I can? Am I making the right choices for my family? As we get older there may be a tendency to get stuck in a certain groove; cultivate certain self-limiting beliefs. And maybe we cast an eye toward people we think have it made; those we think lead charmed lives.

One sleepless night I was browsing through books on Amazon and one caught my eye: it was called The Science of Being Lucky by Nick Trenton. On impulse I decided to buy it.

I'm in the middle of reading it and I'm finding it intriguing in a very grounded way.

Nick Trenton states that there are 3 main traits associated with being a lucky person:

  1. Extroversion This leads us to engage with others socially, speak out, make connections and win others over. This will naturally create more opportunities for help, random connections or new information that can spell a lucky break.

  2. Open-Mindedness This is a receptive, spontaneous state of mind that approaches life with curiosity rather than fear, bias or expectation. With openness to new experiences we say yes to new opportunities and encounter more life experiences that have the chance to evolve favourably.

  3. Low Neuroticism Neuroticism generally has a bad press but we all experience some degree of this. But Trenton states that when we are relaxed, not acting from fear, we see solutions, think outside the box and encounter unexpected positive outcomes- and we don't jeopardise any good luck we do encounter.

So, where does homeopathy come in? It's well known that the energy we put out tends to reap more of the same, along the lines of the Law of Attraction. Homeopathy can play a significant role in changing our energy and mental / emotional state. Only recently one lady who came for treatment for a physical issue and yet very low energy and dissatisfaction with her life, responded wonderfully to homeopathic treatment and spontaneously decided to change her career to one that was much more satisfying and energising. Another patient who couldn't seem to find a suitable boyfriend/partner for years, a week after treatment met a man who she married and is still married to 35 years later. So taking Nick Trenton's headings above how can homeopathy help?

  • Enhancing Extroversion: Homeopathic remedies can help individuals overcome shyness, boost confidence, and improve communication skills, encouraging greater engagement with others and fostering meaningful connections in both personal and professional settings.

  • Cultivating Open-Mindedness: By addressing deep-seated fears, biases, and rigid thinking patterns, homeopathy can promote a more open and receptive mindset. This shift towards openness allows individuals to embrace new experiences, perspectives, and opportunities with enthusiasm and curiosity.

  • Managing Neuroticism: Homeopathy offers gentle yet effective remedies to address underlying anxieties, fears, and emotional imbalances that contribute to neurotic tendencies. By promoting inner calm, resilience, and a balanced emotional state, homeopathy empowers individuals to approach challenges with clarity and composure.

Of course, there's no magic wand, but through personalized consultations and tailored treatment plans, homeopathy can support individuals in cultivating the essential traits associated with luck and fortuitous outcomes. By addressing mental, emotional, and physical imbalances, homeopathy nurtures a harmonious alignment of mind, body, and spirit, fostering a sense of empowerment and well-being conducive to attracting positive opportunities and experiences in life. Clients often come with one expectation, perhaps about a physical problem, and frequently have their expectations surpassed. They come away with a renewed energy, enthusiasm, and appetite for life, experiencing a holistic transformation that goes beyond their initial reason for seeking treatment.
