In case you missed the announcement, the focus of our New Experiment has been decided.
We’ve chosen… a financial outcome.
Specifically, $3000 for each experiment participant.
The $3000 Experiment as it is now known, will launch Jan 1, 2015 and last 90 days until April 1, 2015.
What a great April Fool’s Joke it will be on any doubt you may have when you look back to discover… it worked!”
To help you realize your $3000, we’ll be sharing what we call ‘consciousness tools’.
Consciousness tools provide avenues to step outside the limitations of your existing relationship to a situation… and into astonishing new possibilities.
These avenues will be handy if it doesn’t currently seem highly likely that $3000 is about to come to you unexpectedly.
To introduce you to the possibility that these consciousness tools will alter your experience of money, $3000 Experiment co-leader, Rodney Dietert, (smiling above) describe his own first major experience working with one…
“As one of the four partners in play, I am thrilled to describe a key consciousness concept that has transformed my life and career: Space Conditioning.
It was my first major consciousness tool. With this tool, I quickly went from dipping my toe in the consciousness pool to diving into a whole new reality game. For the foundation behind it, I owe much gratitude to several consciousness mentors who instructed me in the how, when, and where of both personal ‘fields’ and space. As I mentioned earlier, a lengthy portion of my academic career was spent in a prolonged downward spiral that seemed destined to continue until my eventual retirement. But all changed in the blink of an eye once I figured out how to work with my ‘field’ in space.
From its title, this tool may sound to you like a home re-decoration tool and maybe that’s about right. But I can assure you that my version of home, office, classroom, conference room or meeting room redecoration involves far less work and much more play than most room makeovers.
You may not have given much thought to the space around you. But you may have sensed when you are in a supportive room or space or, in contrast, in a certain space where you feel uneasy.
Did you know you can quite easily affect the space you move through or visit? It is all about your personal field in space.
So here goes….
As kids we use space creatively and openly. We can transform space (whether a corner of our room, a playground, the backyard, or the back seat of a car) into a game-playing arena of our choosing. That space is ours to command. It is not detrimental to others but rather supports our own entertainment, amusement, and enlightenment.
But….. something often happens when we grow up and are taught the “practicality” of space.
We often begin to see space as fixed and rigid when in reality, it IS massive potential.
Space Conditioning permeates everything I do. I use it in meetings, my research and teaching activities (e.g., lectures and workshop presentations), and other work-related projects. And with Space Conditioning, nothing is as it used to be at my work. Below is but one example of my use of Space Conditioning at a key point in my career.
My Most Important Talk Ever ……and I had nothing, or did I?
Have you ever dreamed you slept through a school final exam or showed up for an event where you were supposed to bring something critical to its success that you forgot to bring?
Well, that happened to me at the highest profile, most prestigious talk I had ever given in my career. It was a presentation at the Institute of Medicine, U.S. National Academy of Sciences (Washington, DC). Every scientist dreams of such opportunities.
Somehow I had misunderstood the program agenda and thought the 30 minute slot between the morning coffee break and lunch next to my name was to be an informal round table discussion in my area of expertise. No props and no preparation would be needed for this type of discussion.
Only when a colleague next to me and following me in the program opened his power point file and commented to me how he might need to reduce his 50-plus slides to just 30-40 slides for his talk did my error in thinking sink in.
“Wait, you mean we are expected to actually give a presentation and show slides!?” was my reaction.”
I had nothing prepared and just the 15 minute coffee break before ultimate professional embarrassment.
(And I needed that cup of coffee, oh how I needed coffee.)
What could I do? Well to start with I used my field to work on the space of the room. I decided it would be my game, my rules.
What would happen would not be about what I said but rather the usefulness of what was heard.
I decided attendees would hear something personally useful regardless of what I did or said (even if I just stood up front and made shadow puppets with my hands pronouncing “this is a bunny rabbit” since I had no slides).
Once I made these decisions to ‘Condition the Space’, the pressure was off.
I found and grabbed three slides from a file I had on the laptop with me and quickly created two additional slides on the spot during the remaining eight minutes of the coffee break. These hastily-assembled slides were just a framework, nothing more.
I don’t remember exactly what I said only the reaction of a long-time colleague of 25-plus years who has heard me lecture many times.
She rushed up afterwards proclaiming “that was absolutely the best talk I have ever heard you give!” and the very positive reactions of the others attendees supported her conclusion.
Really? How could that have happened?
It happens with Space Conditioning. That kind of outcome can happen to anyone, anywhere in any situation.
When the $3000 Experiment launches, I’ll explain this consciousness tool in all the detail you’ll need to dramatically alter your field and condition your personal space regarding money. I know you’ll find it useful!”
I know we will too. And as we embark on the $3000 Experiment, Rodney will explain how to apply Space Conditioning to your finances. (By the way, friends, this is the first time Rodney has ever described “Space Conditioning” although he and Janice introduced the idea of playing effectively with space in their 2013 book “Science Sifting”.)
See you back here next Friday. And in the comments below, tell us about your experiences with consciousness tools. When did you step outside the limitations of your existing relationship to a situation – and find yourself standing in a brand new possibility?
Let your story add to the momentum we’re creating here!
