How to Find a Four Leaf Clover

Find a four leaf clover

by cabotcheese.coop

What To Wear

Comfortable clothing helps considerably. Sweat pants, a loose fitting shirt and soft shoes allow for free movement and are highly recommended. At least at first. Soon you will discover you can find four-leaf clovers no matter what kind of clothing you prefer. From formal to casual, business suit to bathing suit, anything goes! All you need is the willingness to look along the way.

Where & When To Look

Once dressed comfortably for your first foray, start by looking in the largest clover field you can find. If you live in a city, you are most likely to find the healthiest clover clusters on grassy areas near highway interchanges.
Parks are nice, of course, but the most prolific clover patches tend to be found in thicker, grassy places off the beaten path. Finding new places to explore is half the fun of discovery.
Recently mowed fields should be avoided for obvious reasons. Front yards offer the novice four-leaf clover explorer a protected place to begin – so do school yards and church lawns

Sunny days make the quest that much more pleasant. You are at once soothed by the warmth and assisted by the light. But drizzly days can be relaxing, too, though such weather can make the search a bit more challenging.

Search Tip

Only daylight hours are suitable for clover searching. Fours have a habit of going to bed early and close their leaves at dusk.

Another Thing To Consider

When you begin to look, in whatever weather, be sure to consider your tolerance for
public scrutiny. If you are highly visible during your search, curious people will inquire about youractivity. Cultivate an attitude of adventure and always maintain the determination to succeed.Your rewards will be many.

What To Bring Along

If you expect to be out looking for four-leaf clovers for any extended period of time, take along a cup or pail of water. Clovers stay fresh floating on the surface – stems down. If held in your hand, they will wilt.The more colorful the water-holder, the better. After extensive roaming, it’s easier to bring fours back to a bright, easily seen container. In dense fields, you might lose sight of it altogether. While this can be a distraction, and sometimes a slight aggravation, don’t let this interrupt the fun. Search for fours at the same time you search for your bucket!

Pressing Matters

You may choose to bring a book along and press your treasures right away. Your choice of book is particularly important. Size determines the stamina required for toting. Selection of subject matter, though an esoteric consideration, essentially infuses the four-leaf clovers with the spirit of the page. Poetry, dictionaries and classical fiction seem to make the best pressing beds. Be advised that once inserted, clovers should be left alone for at least two weeks to ensure proper dehydration. You can expect wrinkles and a pleasing, delicate parchment effect on the pages where the clovers have dried.
Now that you know the ground rules, you are ready to set out on your first four-leaf clover adventure. Your search provides a wonderful opportunity for discovery and relaxation. So, start looking. Be prepared for wondrous results.

Sit, squat or enjoy a sublime recline in the middle of a clover patch.Don’t look at each clover – ultimately it’s boring, and it might make you impatient since there are hundreds of clovers
to consider. Instead, un-focus your eyes. This means rather than seeing one clover clearly in the center of your vision, take all of the clovers within a one-foot square range into view. Do this with evenly blurred sight. This relaxed way of looking puts the clovers on a flat plane. Your field of vision becomes two dimensional and lacks depth perception. This is the secret to detecting fours. A generalized overview, not specific inspection, makes the precious four-leaf clover vibrate distinctly among the common threes. Suddenly, the fours will stand out conspicuously, among the threes, as if red in a field of green!
When you relax your eyes, you encourage the four-leaf clovers to magically appear.
Please note, squinting does notqualify as relaxed!

Get Lucky! Yes, you can!

Get Lucky! Yes, you can!

how to be luckier

Learn to be lucky! Yes, you can!

Sir Alexander Fleming was trying to create a “wonder drug”—with little success. It wasn’t until he threw away his failed experiments that he noticed a culture growing in one of his contaminated petri dishes, that was dissolving all the bacteria around it. And voila—the lucky discovery of penicillin saved millions of lives in the decades to come.

We’ve all read about lucky discoveries that were a chance event. We all talk about lucky movie stars who made it big with little (or at least questionable!) talent. We all know those lucky colleagues who get noticed and rewarded, even though their skills and effort leave much to be desired. And we are all jealous of those lucky friends who always seem to fit into the last pair of jeans on sale. As for ourselves, most of us believe that we fall on the opposite end of the luck spectrum and shake our heads at our inability to be in the right place at the right time.

However, in his interesting book, Heart, Smarts, Guts and Luck, Anthony Tjan talks about lucky entrepreneurs who made it big, not because of endless passion, intelligence or daring. He talks instead about them possessing an attitude and an orientation to life that separated them from the “unlucky” rest.

The great news is that this attitude can be cultivated by all of us. If you want good fortune to shine on you more often, here are certain qualities of character you can work on developing.

Curb the Pride

In her book, Stand Out, Dorie Clark says that lucky people are willing to approach others without expecting anything in return. Too often, we use every event as an opportunity to network. While this strategy may be good in places, it is sometimes in those moments when you are not thinking of your own profit, that unexpected luck can shine on you. The willingness to meet anyone, anytime with an openness to enter other worlds with curiosity and compassion requires a certain humility that all lucky people seem to possess.

Tame the Control

Often, what stops us from becoming luckier is our thoughts. Professor of psychologyTodd Kashdan, talks about the emotional adaptability that comes from releasing control of our thoughts and observing them instead. Instead of trying to control a thought that says “I cannot do this”, notice it by telling yourself “Look, I’m saying to myself that I cannot do this”. This separation of self and thought allows you to live with uncertainty and to “feel it the fear and do it anyway”.

Be Passionate, but Open

Lucky people have a clear purpose in life that they are really passionate about. And they are not wedded to a plan of action. This openness to experience allows them to make space in their day to explore, to discover, to be surprised. It also allows them to live in the present moment and take the most appropriate action given the circumstances, rather than waiting for the perfect moment to arrive. The willingness to accept the imperfections along the way and see the journey as a zig-zagging path that eventually leads to their goals opens up far more opportunities and creates its own momentum.

Be Willing to Fail

One of the greatest impediments to luck is the fear of failure. It keeps us imprisoned in a comfort zone that shrinks with time. Lucky people recognize that the magic happens outside of the comfort zone and are able to take calculated risks knowing that the outcome may not go their way. Having what Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck calls a growth mindset is a great way to release the fear of failure.

Find Time to Reflect

Lucky people have an uncanny ability to mix perspectives and come up with a creative new way of seeing the world. They listen deeply to others, are open to feedback and take time out to reflect. Paying attention to their own selves by building self-awareness while simultaneously reflecting on the world around them with wonder allows them to participate in the opportunities in life with gratitude, wisdom and full engagement.

Live Your Chutzpah

Educator Parker Palmer talks about the importance of audacity towards living a life of few regrets. Knowing that you have gifts that can benefit others, a voice that can bring about change and a responsibility to show up fully allows you to take ownership of your life and make luck happen. Speaking up, letting others know what you are passionate about and being driven by contribution takes away the self-doubt and self-consciousness that is a natural part of living boldly and on purpose.

Luck is not simply good fortune that shines upon a blessed few. It is a frame of mind, a desire to live fully and without appearances, that allows us to venture into the little nooks and crannies of life with humility, curiosity and a real hunger to make a difference. And it is often in those secret hideouts that bubbles of luck lie waiting to be burst.

Whether you consider yourself lucky or not, there are steps you can take to get luckier. What will you do today?

Suzi Mekhitarian has stumbled into a patch of good luck.

The Glen Alpine resident has plucked 21 four-leaf clovers from her front yard, the odds of which are staggering as the chance of finding a single four-leaf clover is about one in 10,000.

“I think it’s just extraordinary,” Mrs Mekhitarian said. “I have all my friends saying to me ‘send me one’!

“I’m going to get them laminated and give them to friends on their birthdays or just whenever they are having bad luck.’’

Suzanne Mekhitarian, from Glen Alpine, has found almost 20 four leaf clovers in her front yard.

Australian Botanic Garden director of science Brett Summerell said Mrs Mekhitarian’s patch of clover was indeed a rare case.

 

“Instead of the dominant gene characteristics of the plant being three leaves, it is four, increasing the chances of this occurring in a single patch,’’ he said.

“There hasn’t been a great deal of research into this so nobody knows why this occurs but I hear about it happening every five or six years.”

According to superstition, the four-leaf clover — a rare variation of the three-leaf variety — is thought to bring good luck to its finders, especially if found by accident.

 

Each leaf is symbolic, and stands for faith, hope, love and luck — St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with the fourth leaf meaning the Grace of God.

The superstition is thought to date back as far as thebiblical story of Adam and Eve when Eve was banished from the Garden of Eden, she took a four-leaf clover with her to remind her of paradise.

Mrs Mekhitarian said her lucky find was not by chance.

 

“A friend I was very close with who had found four-leafed clovers passed away,’’ she said.

“After starting up a new business, I found myself asking her to show me a sign to tell me if I’m doing the right thing.

“The next day, for the first time, I found a four-leaf clover in my front yard. And then 20 more.”

Are you feeling lucky?

1. Each leaf of a four-leaf clover has a specific meaning — faith, hope, love and luck.
2. A person who finds one will meet a future lover on the same day.
3. The clover brings good luck and protects against evil.
4. Anyone wearing a clover will be able to see fairies if they are around.
5. If you pass your clover on to someone else, your luck will double.

University of Sydney mathematics senior lecturer Clio Cresswell said with a one in 10,000 chance of finding one four-leaf clover, finding 21 was about a one in a number with 84 zeros.

“There would have to be something scientifically going on because the odds are far too ridiculous,” she said.

Prof Cresswell said the feat was 10 to the power of 78 times harder than winning the Powerball lottery.

“It is much bigger than Powerball. Us mathematicians deal with numbers like these all the time but applying them to real life is extremely difficult.”

 

The chance of finding a four leaf clover is one in 10,000.

How to find a four-leaf clover

How to find a four-leaf clover: It’s spring and I have my mojo back. Not only did I find my first four-leaf clover of the year, I discovered two more, along with a five-leaf clover the next day.

fourleafclover

But it didn’t just happen. It took more than a month of looking for me to find my first of 2014. While still in L.A., I spent about an hour one Saturday afternoon wandering around the Robertsdale Public Works compound. There were countless trips around the Mississippi house staring at fluffy green patches around the yard. A couple of weeks ago, my mother found a four-leaf clover in our backyard. It wasn’t until late last week that I was able to join the club.

Finding four-leaf clovers is more about technique than luck or skill, at least for me. Sure, even a blind squirrel will find a nut occasionally. Likewise, blind luck will allow some folks to locate the mysterious good luck charms. For me, once in the right mindset, it’s not unusual for me to collect a dozen or more at a time.

With a few techniques and a little bit of knowledge, you too can give away bouquets of a dozen four-leaf clovers.

The first step in finding four-leaf clovers is not to look for them. I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but hang with me. Instead of looking for clovers with four leaves, look for something different. Imagine a sheet of paper printed with numbers. The vast majority of the numbers are 3s, but there are also a few 4s. So how would you locate the 4s? Would you scan the page, row by row, examining closely each character? Or would you glance at the page and look for the characters made up of straight lines (4s) instead of curved lines (3s)?

To find four-leaf clovers, you look for something different. There are no straight lines in a clover patch, but there are differences. Most clovers have three leaves, meaning the angle between the leaves is about 120 degrees. For four-leaf clovers, the angle is reduced to 90 degrees. Standard clover has three leaves the same size. Four-leaf clovers usually have one leaf that is smaller.

It is a right brain, left brain thing. You have to shut down the analytical right side of your brain and let the more artistic left side take over. It takes a while to get into the right mindset, even for me. I will still find myself scanning left to right, counting leaves. You have to slow down a little. Instead of focusing on every leaf, pull back a little and just scan the patch, not really focusing.

When something different jumps out, investigate. Most times, what you think is a fourth leaf is just a well-placed neighbor, or two clovers intertwined. But keep looking for something different and it will stand out.

Once you find your first four-leaf clover, what do you do next? Call friends? Post it on Facebook? Stop looking and organize a celebration party?

No. Once you find one four-leaf clover, the best thing you can do is start looking for more.

Clovers have three leaves. The ones that have four leaves are mutations. If the conditions were right for one mutation, then conditions were probably right for more mutations. So where you find one four-leaf clover, you will most likely find more. Just stay calm and keep looking.

While there are numerous kinds of clover, I personally will only search white clover — the kind with flowers that look like little white pompoms.

There have been studies that claim that for every 10,000 clovers, only one has four leaves. Tradition says that the first three leaves represent faith, hope and love. The fourth one is luck.

But why stop at four? Clovers don’t. Five-leaf clovers are even rarer and the extra appendage is supposed to represent wealth. (I’m still waiting on that part.) The television show Futurama had an episode featuring an incredibly lucky seven-leaf clover. I have found one six-leaf clover. The record is an astonishing 56 leaves on one stem. It was found by Shigeo Obara in Japan in May 2009.

Whether or not you believe they bring luck, four-leaf clovers offer something that is hard to put a price on: peace of mind.

Searching for four-leaf clovers give you a chance to commune with nature for a brief bit, while enjoying the wonderful spring weather.

So go outside and let your mind relax. Listen to the birds. Feel the warm sunshine. Feel the breeze blowing in your hair. And take the time to look. Who knows, you might get lucky.

How to Find a Four-Leaf Clover

How to Find a Four-Leaf Clover

looking4leaf

Saint Patrick might have used the leaves of a clover as a metaphor for the Holy Trinity, but today’s shamrocks more commonly associated with good luck. And instead of combing through fields of clover in hopeless pursuit of a four- rather than three-leafed clover, you can up your odds with a scientific methodology.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/video/how-science-can-help-you-find-four-leaf-clover-video/

As Scientific American explains, around one out of 10,000 clovers have four leaves. Around 200 clovers can be found in a 60-square centimeter plot of clover-growing grass or field, which means, on average, a space of about 1.2-square meters should contain a four-leaf clover.

The short version: when scanning that patch, don’t examine every one of those 10,000 leaves. Instead, stare at the patch without focusing on any one detail. This increases the odds that a four-leafer—which deviates from the overall pattern of leaves—will jump out at you.

St. Patty’s Day four-leaf clover headband

St. Patty’s Day four-leaf clover headband

Not only are the plant buds starting to bloom again, but the greenest holiday of year — St. Patrick’s Day — claims March as its host. Starting right after Valentine’s Day, customers are bombarded with green decorations for the holiday as soon as they walk into any store.

We have all known the holiday was approaching, but Monday is the day to wear green or else face the dreaded pinch.

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated each year on March 17, the accepted date of St. Patrick’s death. Though it has a historical significance, in high school the holiday was an excuse to pinch and in college the holiday was an excuse to drink.

No matter what you are doing to celebrate St. Patty’s Day, make sure you wear your green to work, school or anywhere out and about. This week’s craft, a green headband or four-leaf clover pin, is something you can make in 30 minutes on a budget this weekend. Be prepared with your touch of green.

Four-leaf clover headband

What you need:

IMG_2802- Fabric hairbands from the Dollar Store

– Green ribbon

– Small amount of green felt

– Button for middle of clover

– Needle and white thread

– Hot glue gun

What to do:

IMG_28291. First, make a pattern of a clover leaf using a sheet of paper. Draw a rectangle about 2 inches tall and 1 inch wide. Cut out two humps on the top to make the leaf shape. Next, cut four leaves from the green felt using your pattern.

2. Lay the green felt pieces down in row all facing theIMG_2832 same way.

3. Thread your needle. Take first shamrock leaf and bend it in thirds. Sew through it and then do the same with the other three leaves, all on the same piece of thread.

Pull string tight and tie it in a knot. It should now be in a clover shape

5. Sew any button you want in the center. For a pin,IMG_2835 hot glue the clover to a safety pin and you are set to go. For a headband, put the clover to the side and get out the bands.

6. Hot glue the green ribbon to the headband. Add hot glue as you tightly wrap the ribbon around the headband. After you get to the end, cut the ribbon and hot glue the end down.

Finally, place and hot glue the clover where you want it on the band.

You are ready for Monday. Happy crafting and happy St. Patty’s Day!
