Whether you are of Irish decent or not, many American’s celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. If you are feeling Irish today, start thinking about how you can leverage the luck to turn your romantic life around. As a dating coach for women, I recommend jump starting this potentially powerful shift on the three heart-shaped leaves of a shamrock:
Leaf 1) Begin thinking of yourself as lucky in love. Lucky people usually think of themselves as lucky which promotes more good luck. They simply expect to be lucky. So how would your love-life change if you felt lucky in love? You might feel more attractive to the opposite sex. You might not fear rejection as much. You might imagine suddenly finding the love of your life. Not such a bad idea huh?

This concept mirrors “The Secret” and the Universal Law of Attraction which states “Like attracts like.” What that really means is that positive thinking attracts more positive thinking. And believing you are lucky in love will attract energy that makes you – you’ve got it – lucky in love. What have you got to lose?
Leaf 2) Follow the rainbow to find the Leprechaun’s pot of gold. Or the romantic partner you’ve been seeking. Hmmm. How does that apply? Well, rainbows seem like a bit of magic from the Universe and Leprechauns certainly have a magical quality. So can you stretch to believe that meeting the right person for you is part of the magic of the Universe and bound to happen? People find love every day. Why not you?
On my own dating journey, sometimes what pulled me through the rougher times was reminding myself that everything has a purpose (even if we don’t know it.) So there must be a reason I was doing all this work to find a partner. And I chose to believe that the reasons behind it all, the good and the bad, were the lesson I needed to learn to FIND HIM. Holding onto that faith tightly kept me going when I felt down. I got to the point where I knew undeniably that I was going to find the right man for me. And I did. If I can do it, I know you can too!
Leaf 3) Get your own piece of gold to remind yourself that you are lucky. If you met a Leprechaun who rewarded you with a piece of gold, you’d probably never let go of it right? Well, what if you found your own talisman to remind you of your good fortune? You could get something like:
• One of those popular necklaces with a horseshoe (for more good luck of course)
• Carry a small coin stamped with lucky symbols (Celtic stores carry this type of thing)
• Or find a lucky pebble and maybe even paint it gold

The actual item doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you find something that speaks to you about your lot in life and turning it around to the lucky soul you deserve to be – and truly are.
Take your luck into your own hands! Allow yourself this new belief of being lucky in love. Who knows where it will take you, but expecting to be lucky in love will definitely attract more luck and love to you. Here’s to getting lucky – in love and life!
