- Listen to your Intuition (lucky hunches)
- Expect Good Fortune

What does this have to do with gnosticism or magic? Well, I find it to be part of 'gnothi seauton' myself. I don't think of myself as superstitious, I think of myself as occasionally lucky, but that often we make our own luck and make the most of the chances given to us. We'll see if that's the case as I work through the book.
