Today’s wrap- up of The $3000 Experiment has 3 parts. First, we 4 experiment co-leaders, aka ‘Consciouseers’, share what we’ve learned through this experiment. Then Janice offers instructions on what to do now with the Transformational Space you set up. And finally, its time to take stock of your results in this experiment.
Over to you first, Janice…
Consciouseer Janice here. Wow! Can it be possible? Three months have gone by already? But we’ve been having so much fun! And we’ve been watching such amazing things happen! Doesn’t seem possible we’re closing in on the end of such a phenomenal ride.
None of this would be possible without your daring spirits who jumped on board an amazing experiment to bring unexpected money and blessings into your lives. It also would not have been possible without three other amazing facilitators – our Experiment Consciouseers – Ken, Wendy and Rodney. I can honestly say, I’ve never worked with a group of people where ego never raised its head, until I collaborated with these three. There were conversations behind the scenes where not all of our ideas meshed, yet the ebb and flow and harmonious rhythms we found were refreshing and unique to any experience I’ve had previously. Thank you so much co-facilitators for making this a wonderful experience for me personally. I’m sorry to see this phase end.
And as much as you experimenters were gaining from our shared insights and tools, we behind the scenes were also learning and growing from each other and from you. I’ve asked the others to share some brief notes on what they will be taking away from this marvelous opportunity we’ve had.
WHAT THE 4 CO-LEADERS HAVE LEARNED
“Hi, This is Consciouseer Rodney. I wanted to share three things I learned during our 90-day, $3,000 Experiment. First of course, there was the power of the experiment itself. It had individuality as each person prepared a highly-personalized, transformational space. Second, there was the power of the group where many people joined into one experiment. Finally, there was the flexibility of the path, and that was the most surprising of all for me. We left things very open.
Things got so wild and powerful for us that, 2/3 of the way through, Janice and I increased our goal by 10 fold and still exceeded that before the end of the experiment. We reached our goal with much appreciation. But, what I never counted on was the path abundance took as it flowed in. Our joint experiment, January-March, has literally transformed my professional career. The past 90 days have been the most significant of my 38-year academic professorial career in terms of amazing, completely-unexpected opportunities. I did not put in for that in any direct sense; but it is a part of how the abundance showed up. I fully embrace this unexpected path with much gratitude. The abundance of the experiment came. And it came with career opportunities beyond my wildest dreams.”
“Hi, Consciouseer Wendy here. When Janice suggested we each comment on what we learned through the $3,000 Experiment, I wanted to write about the power of intention to impact our finances. But since this is about my personal learnings (and I’ve already learned that lesson), what I really discovered over these 3 months is how wonderful it is to co-create with others you respect and enjoy as much as I do Ken, Janice and Rodney.
I thoroughly enjoyed every moment behind the scenes and ‘on the page.’ Creating with them has made the $3,000 Experiment the easiest project I’ve ever done. And the best part is our collaboration will be ongoing because… we plan on turning the $3,000 Experiment into a book. (More news to follow at a later date.)
And this from Consciouseer Ken: “I would echo how good it was to work in a team of “Consciouseers.” Wendy and I share in many team healing adventures and it was really good to be able to widen my horizons and collection of friends with this $3,000 Experiment collaboration.
We have shared so many basic ideas around intentions, gratitude, appreciation and support together with the magic of a ‘cooking station’ or ‘table of transformation’ – tools that we can apply to the conscious creation tasks that we take on from now. It has also raised a question for me about processes, which I really intend to explore, about creating and investigating our ‘future’ – suppose you could access the knowledge of your future career or partner, which share prices would go up, the ‘right’ location for your business – would that be useful? The thinking has begun.”
“And I, Consciouseer Janice, have personally been encouraged by seeing so many people step outside of their comfort zone to create positive outcomes for themselves. And because I was a co-facilitator, I felt the responsibility to really “walk my talk” at home, which I believe led to greater and greater inflows of opportunities and money. My heart just warmed to bursting to read the wonderful things that were happening for others. This Experiment will remain a truly sunny spot in my life forever.
And as the other Consciouseers have mentioned, to collaborate with three awesome, humble, fun-loving individuals in such an inventive, creative way has been a gift. I look forward to the continued collaboration as we pull the material together and create a marvelous book to bring the knowledge and energy of this $3,000 Experiment to all who are interested.”
RELEASING YOUR TRANSFORMATIONAL SPACE
And now as the Experiment is coming to a close, I’d like to offer some ideas about how to release your Transformational Space into the ethers. Know that there is no one right or wrong way to do this, but merely a suggestion that you can tweak and alter as it best suits you.
For me, the first order of business is a heartfelt prayer or meditation of gratitude for all the blessings the Transformational Space has brought. I’m most inclined to light a candle while facing the Transformational Space and review all the wonderful things that happened during the duration of its time with me.
Once I feel complete in my gratitude, I blow out the candle and remove the items from the space one-by-one carefully cleaning each one as I take it off and putting it back in its original “home.” Once the space is bare, I clean it as well. You might want to use lemon oil. Then I generally smudge the area with one or all of the following – white sage, cedar and/or pine.
Now the space is clear and clean. It is ready for a new project, though I have a tendency to allow the old energies to dissipate for a day or two before starting something new.
This has been an awesome moment in our history. Blessings to you all!
(And thanks for that, Janice…)
ACKNOWLEDGING WHAT THE EXPERIMENT HAS YIELDED TO YOU
(Wendy again now…)
When we decided to focus on money for this collaborative experiment, our intention was for each participant to realize $3000 of unexpected income. Our reasons were simple and straightforward. We wanted a target that was common, desirable and measurable.
As Ken said then, “People will know when it has arrived.” And Janice added, “The desire to feel secure around money, have enough to pay bills and give gifts is the sort of challenge that’s perfect for consciousness tools. It lends itself really well to tools that move the individual away from fear of not enough into the sense of neutrality and openness to multiple possibilities. When a person starts using the tools we’ll share in this experiment, they’ll create new internal and external spaces where shifts, transformations and miracles can happen.”
And now 3 months later, its time to take stock of the results the experiment yielded for you. (so far.)
Did you realize $3000 of unexpected income as we’d intended?
You’ve put your time, energy and intention into it so be sure to complete the process today. And since we’ve been right alongside you, cheering you along every step of the way, we want to know your results as well!
Let us know, in a comment below or a private email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also want to know what you are taking away – taking forward – into your life as a result of participating.
Thank you from the bottoms of our four happy hearts for having taken this journey with us. And keep an eye our for further updates about this experiment, our $3000 Experiment Book, and whatever will be happening here in the Consciousness Playground next!
