I'm talking more about the people who go from being dirt poor in their physical life and their minds to winning the multi-million dollar jackpots. I remember reading a few times of people barely having any money in the bank and struggling to get by end up winning the mega jackpots.
I guess my question is, if these people were on a low vibratory frequency of lack, then how do they end up turning around their fortunes so quickly? I understand that some of them could have shifted their vibrations but what about the ones who have no idea about the Law of Attraction or creating their own realities?
Luck is something that I'm starting to disbelieve more and more in but is that just what is is.....luck? Karma maybe?
I've always been curious about this topic and look forward to hearing other peoples opinions on it.

I think one has to make a distinction between "winning the lottery" and personal joy.
In most people's minds, winning the lottery seems to automatically equate to a life of freedom and happiness.
But if you think about it, winning the lottery only really means having access to a lot more artificial paper notes and metal coins ("money") than the next person.
So at the exact moment of the win, one can only say that the "winner" was aligned with receiving a truckload of paper and metal :)
It's what effect that man-made construct of money (physical or not) subsequently has on someone's life that equates to personal freedom and happiness - and that is driven, not by the money, but always by the existing vibration of the winner.
I quite enjoy watching those "I Won The Lottery" style of programmes on the TV where lottery winners' lives are followed subsequent to a win. (Obviously, these are only a very small subset of winners who were willing to be interviewed, and certainly not the ones who clearly "crashed and burned" afterwards).
Those TV programmes are often edited in a deliberately-biased fashion in order to demonstrate to the viewer the lavish lifestyles that a large lottery win entails...because that's what the viewer wants to see.
But despite that editing bias, during the interviews with the winners, one can still often get an intuitive feeling as to whether the influx of man-made money has really brought them personal happiness or whether they've only found themselves with more physical stuff onto which to project their existing vibrational attitudes. To me, that usually comes across as the case. "Same news, different faces", as the saying goes.
On the other hand, there does seem to be the occasional individual who seems genuinely joyful and their subsequent-to-the-win life experiences seem to reflect that joy.
Those winners seem to be the ones who were genuinely aligned with the win but I suspect that if you were to investigate their lives prior to the win, they were already reflecting that joy despite their physical circumstances.
Can you be sure that they were in a lower vibration of lack? Maybe their surruondings were but mentally they were in a high vibration thus thier winning just the belief and the buying of the lotto ticket can be a possitive step toward the vibration of winning.
Hi Cory...my guess is that these people have had enough of living in dirt poor surroudings and to escape they start imagining that they are living a life of luxury...the fact that they know nothing of the law of attraction can be an advantage...they don't know it exists so they don't put up any mental barriers of doubt...the law of attraction is always at work whether we realize or not...so the exact conditions for manifestations are fulfilled.
Now that i think about it, i remember that in my youth i often experienced this kind of phenomena...at the time i thought nothing of it...it is after all a natural phenomena.

Im sure some poor people obviously build up a very strong desire to be wealthy because of the contrast they are living. I have heard Abraham say that a very strong desire can sometimes override the belief system and this person can still manifest what they want.
However because they are not a complete vibrational match to it they cannot keep it in their experience. This ties in with the stories you sometimes hear about how some lottery winners lose their wealth quite quickly again.

Bashar was once asked, "How do I win the lottery?" He says that the way you do that is by shifting your reality into that reality which matches your numbers. Then he goes on to say that what most people are doing when they play the lottery is exploring their relationship with material wealth, and it's in that exploration that most people win, not in actually getting the money.
He also points out that, while most people want to win the lottery, they are not as passionate about it as they are about the things they think they will get if they win the lottery, and that there are probably better (and, I daresay, more likely) ways to achieve the things that you are truly passionate about.
I cannot add much to the already excellent answers that have already been given. However, here is a current reminder (from today's news) that the vibration of abundance does not necessarily have to manifest by way of a lotto win, or even via cash, check, or money order:
Some more interesting details:
From an interview with "John" and "Mary":
Q. Why do you think you were the lucky ones to find this treasure? Do you believe it was divine intervention or karma?
Mary: I never would have thought we would have found something like this; however, in a weird way I feel like I have been preparing my whole life for it.
Mary: John just knew what to do - it was a little bit karmic... Perhaps in some way we were the ones that could honor the coins.
Q. You have an interest in astrology; have you checked how the planets were aligned or what your chart said at the time of discovery?
Mary: Actually, I did look back at it. It's very funny, my chart did talk about treasure, but it was more about the treasure of spirit....
Q. Would you say that your "dreams" have come true?
John: Like a lot of people lately, we've had some financial trials. I feel extreme gratitude that we can keep our beloved property.
Q. Estimates put the value of this find at over $10 million; better than some lotteries. What will you do with all this money?
Mary: We love our lives as they are - I hope we can help our family members and our community and give back some.
Q. Are you going to quit your jobs?
John: No - we're self-employed - the beautiful thing about self-employment is that you can go to your grave self employed.
Q. You have chosen to remain anonymous out of concern for your family's safety and potentially from being overwhelmed by the media. But how do you think this find will change your lives?
Mary: We're the same people we were before, just with more freedom of choice. Our finances won't have to dictate so many of our day to day decisions.
Q. Some lottery winners have later said that such sudden wealth ended up being more of a curse than a blessing. Have the two of you discussed how you will navigate the path ahead and the potential pitfalls that might come with instant great wealth?
Mary: We try not to dwell on the negative.
John: It will be a broader path than the one we have been on.
Mary: Money can change other people's perception of us more than our own perception of ourselves. Have you heard the song by Cindy Lauper, Money Changes Everything? We don't want that; we don't plan to tell our extended family or friends until more time goes by.
Life is bigger and more mysterious than the teachings of Abraham. Many people who get what they want say they never expected it. Not everything is created by conscious thought alone.
