8 Woo-Woo Things I Do Even Though I’m Not Superstitious

Marketing legend Dan Kennedy is known for poking fun at new age, spiritual, and religious practices.

In the same breath, by his admission, he still practices what many consider “woo-woo” rituals.

I feel much the same way. I don’t know how much I buy into the woo-woo, but if you observed my actions even for just a week, you’d realize relatively quickly that some of what I do appears the furthest from logical and practical.

Here are eight woo-woo things I do even though I’m not superstitious.

I Meditate

Let’s start with what is probably the least superstitious thing I practice… meditation.

I was first introduced to it when I had a run-in with severe anxiety, and I did it out of necessity. It seemed to help.

In the years since I have tried many forms of meditation and have used it to visualize, change past events, uncover my spirit animal, and even more esoteric things.

It took a long time to cultivate as a habit, but it’s getting harder to imagine not meditating daily now.

I Declutter

When business is not flowing, one of the first things I do is declutter.

I’ll recycle old to-do lists, file away bills, take out the trash, take bottles and cans to the bottle depot, donate some things to Value Village, and so on.

Usually, after this has been completed, business starts flowing again, as if by magic. It’s also a documented phenomenon in Robert Anthony’s Beyond Positive Thinking.

A recent trip to Value Village did appear to set some things into motion in my life, though I can’t say for sure that there’s any correlation.

I Attempt to Feel as Good as I Can

This was instilled in me through various personal development programs like Your Wish Is Your Command.

I’ve become increasingly skeptical as to whether feeling good or “raising your vibrations” does anything to attract what you want, but all things being equal, it’s better to go through life feeling good rather than feeling bad, isn’t it?

I Whiteboard What I Want to Manifest

You could also call it goal setting. I’ll whiteboard a revenue goal for each month, and if I am compelled to, as I was during the recent total solar eclipse, I will also write down the things I want to manifest.

You don’t want to keep anything on your whiteboard for long, as the tool itself is designed to be used and reused.

So, if there’s anything I want to show up in my life, and I decide to whiteboard it, I will put a tighter timeline on it.

Though I do feel whiteboarding is a good way to keep my goals in front of me, I’m not certain that it has any inherent magical power.

I Feng Shui My Workspace

I’m not a Feng Shui master, but I do listen to those who are, such as Marie Diamond.

As a result, my desk is always facing the door, the direction of opportunity. I keep some (golden) currency on my desk as well. That’s about all I know to do, besides decluttering.

So far, I can’t say that it has helped in one way or another.

I Document My Income… in 3 Places

A bit of a weird habit, I suppose, but I document my income on my whiteboard, calendar pad, and computer.

The thought process is – the more I handle and manage money, the more I think about it, the more I document it, the more will come my way.

I used to think it made a difference, but I can’t say it has done anything for me lately.

I Affirm

Whenever I receive money, no matter the amount, I repeat the phrase in T. Harv Eker’s Secrets of the Millionaire Mind:

I am a money magnet. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

There is evidence that gratitude is a good thing, so this might be a worthy habit to perpetuate. The word is out on whether it magnetizes you to additional income though.

I Pray / Ask for Spiritual Gifts

I talk to the Universe almost daily.

As for spiritual gifts, I was not in the habit of asking for them previously, but I’ve seen Gary Spivey do it on his live streams, so I thought “Why not?”

If I get them, I’m better off. If not, I would be in the same position I was in before I started. What have I got to lose by trying?

Final Thoughts

Do you have any weird habits, rituals, or practices, even if you don’t entirely believe in them?

What things have you tried that seem to work?

What have you tried that hasn’t worked?

I look forward to your comments.
