Is Something In the Way of Your $3000?

by Wendy Down on January 23, 2015

$3000 Experiment graphicThe $3000 Experiment continues today! After you’ve checked out our last post demonstrating the link between your inner world (i.e. your intention for $3000) and your outer world (i.e. the amount of money in your pocket), you’re ready to carry on.

Today, Experiment co-leaders, Rodney and Janice Dietert explain 5 ways you may unknowingly be getting in your own way in this experiment.  If so, no biggie because co-leader Ken Graydon has made a special audio-recording designed to zap it.

Problems uncovered and problems resolved right here and now.

Let’s go!



Consciouseers Rodney and Janice Dietert, here.

National Geographic TV show's Free Money" booth

National Geographic TV show, Brain Games, offered ‘Free Money’ from this booth to see how people would respond

Just last night we watched the great National Geographic program ‘Brain Games’.  The episode was called, “Trust Me.”    The premise was that we’ve been taught the adage “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is” for so long, we are challenged in the area of trust.  To prove the point, they set out a booth that said Free Money (see photo, left), put a clear box on it and stuffed the box with money.

They tried giving away money 3 ways:

1. With someone in the booth assuring people the money was free,

2. With no one in the booth, and

3. With images of eyes plastered on the back wall.

People were hesitant to take money when someone was in the booth.  They were far braver when there was no one in the booth and scooped up handfuls of the money.  But when the eyes were plastered on the back wall of the booth, people just couldn’t do it.

So what was going on? Why was it so difficult for people to take free money?  And how does this apply to the $3000 Experiment?

The story the show told was that people just couldn’t trust enough that nothing was going to happen or that the money was really free.  I know my first thought was the old TV show “Candid Camera.” I would have had difficulty trusting that there wasn’t a catch or that at least a practical joke wasn’t being pulled.

So how does that impact our ability to receive “Free Money” from the universe?  Because let’s face it…that’s what we’re saying we’re willing and ready to receive by embarking on this Experiment.

Underlying the reticence to receive something for nothing, free money, lie a number of cultural patterns.  See if any of the five below relate to you!

1. Self Worth. Do I deserve this money?  Am I entitled to receive something this good?

2. Work Ethic. If you have German ancestry (which both Rodney and I do), this can be a really engrained pattern.  You have to work hard for what you earn.  But a lot of cultures have that same mindset.  If you’ve been brought up within Christianity, there’s always the “sweat of your brow” injunction from Genesis.

3. Greedy.  If I take money, or too much money, will I be judged as being greedy?  Will there be enough for others if I take everything in this box?

4. Ancient Concept of Gift Giving. From the ancient Norse Runes, X = Gebo, the Gift, and it has deep meanings that I think still resonate with us today. The gift was a symbol of an oath or bond in ancient times.  This was how a lord or king ensured the loyalty of his subjects.  He gave the person a gift.  The act of receiving the gift created a debt  on the part of the recipient, and that debt meant the recipient was bound to return that gift when called upon (ie., service to the king during times of war).  Even the gift of a gold ring, which now has been chosen to symbolize love, in ancient times was the symbol of an oath of loyalty between two people who generally didn’t even know one another before the wedding day.  When the man gave that gold ring to the woman, it obligated her to remain loyal to him for life.

So, deep within the collective psyche is the idea that if we accept something valuable for free, we obligate ourselves at a very deep level. 

Sheldon Cooper

A more modern expose on the idea is Sheldon Cooper, popular character on the TV show ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (above) stressing about gift giving for Christmas because he feels he must return a gift of the same value when Penny says she’s giving him a gift.  In the end, she gives him Leonard Nimoy’s signature on a napkin, and he gives her every gift he purchased because the autograph is so valuable to him. This kind of thinking sets up the idea that if we take free money from the universe, some obligation will be extracted from us in return.

5.  Ancestral Need. As my favorite dowsing instructor, Raymon Grace says, some of us needed better ancestors.  He’s of Scotch Irish descent and his ancestors came over during the Irish Potato Famine.  As he puts it, ‘my ancestors didn’t come here with money; they came here because they were starving’.

Science has shown within the last couple of years that the experiences of the mother before she even conceives can alter her genes in such a way that the children she does have respond to similar situations AS IF THEY HAD EXPERIENCED THEM THEMSELVES.

So, did you spot any of these 5 common money-related issues within yourself?

Even if you have no issues with self-worth, greed, or your perceptions of and around money, what about those patterns that have been handed down to you for generations if not millennia?  How does one clear something one has never experienced?

Easy!  Experiment co-leader, Ken Graydon, has made a special audio-recording for you to do exactly that right here and now.

All you have to do is find a comfy spot where you can be quiet for 10 minutes, close your eyes, and let Ken’s soothing voice guide you through 2 processes that stretch back in time and clear these patterns so they’ll no longer affect you, “The Healing Handbook“, that will help you sweep them away.

PS.  Rodney and I have found Emotional Freedom Tapping useful.  And Raymon Grace has a great DVD around Prosperity that addresses these issues too.

But most important, just remember that you already did the work to clear out space and set up your Experiment.  What the universe fills that space with now: a) will not deprive others, b) is exactly what you need, c) comes with no strings or obligations attached.


Thanks everyone!  In usual Consciousness Playground fashion, we’ll all be taking the last week of this month off to enjoy other things.  See you back here on Tuesday, Feb 3 with a post including some of the wonderful unexpected money stories that are already happening for participants.  See you then.   ~ Wendy

Thank you Ken for the meditation.
Interesting journey to the island. When the figures appeared, the child seeing me clung onto the legs of the masculine! Then I asked the question & the feminine aspect came forward and said “It isn’t my destiny”. Of course that’s when I started arguing the point, and the meditation moved on. I think I need to revisit this.

Raymon Grace’s Blueprint for Freedom is great. The first link under #5 Ancestral Need does not work, but the one under download the mp3 does work and will take you to one of his sites. Click on Raymons Bio and then click on at the bottom of that page. Next click on What We Do and you will find the 8 installments of the Blueprint for Freedom on that page.

Does anyone know how to download the mp3 onto an iBook?

Daniel Alwyn January 29, 2015 at 12:30 pm

Well done Janice and Rodney-
fantastic information.

Linda D January 28, 2015 at 7:05 pm

Interestingly, by putting attention on “possible blocks” (what I don’t want) I seem to have bogged up the flow (what I do want). So I am in here today reading everyone’s posts to get it going again!

Tarah January 26, 2015 at 8:28 pm

Hello all! Thank you so much for this wonderful experiment! It’s so fun to let go of the really ridiculous ideas we have around money. I asked myself what felt right to ask for this go around, and 50k kept coming up, so I went with it. I have been receiving all kinds of unexpected gifts and money! A few days ago I got a check in the mail for $400 for a referral almost a year ago. Totally unexpected! Loving all the stories! xoxo

Sue January 26, 2015 at 2:00 am

Today’s posting totally resonated with me… brought clarity where *I* am limiting myself. I would like to download the MP3. Please advise on how to proceed. TYIA!

Linda D January 28, 2015 at 7:02 pm

Try opening in Explorer, then right click, and the ‘save link as” or “save target as” option should be there – it does not show up in Google browser.

Wendy Down January 28, 2015 at 7:43 pm

Thanks Linda, for helping out with that!

YaMaEL January 25, 2015 at 9:17 pm

Thank you Ken the recording was amazing as always!! Thank you Wendy and all the other facilitators for this fabulous experiment!! I created my beautiful sacred space for this experiment, on a little table in front of all my powerful crystals and adored with all the things my guidance led me to add to the table (photo below) I am overjoyed to share that I received a call that an unexpected dividend check is on the way the first of next week for EXACTLY $3000!!!! So grateful and excited to see what other unexpected abundance shows up during this experiment. ~ Bushels and blessings of love and abundance to ALL!!! ~ YaMaEL

Kelly January 25, 2015 at 6:31 pm

Amazing stuff, all of it! My husband and I have plans to open up a cafe next summer. We have been focusing on receiving more funds to use for the process. We have learned over the last couple of years that money tends to flow to us from unexpected sources and easily!
I had to laugh when I opened our mail box on Friday and there was a check for us written for the amount of $3,000.00! Not one penny less.
I will admit that my initial intention was to receive more funds , but that was before this 3k experiment had presented itself . So, if the $3,000. arrived so quickly than more is to follow.
Hilarious, the stuff really does work!

barb glover January 25, 2015 at 8:26 pm

I’m NOT at all surprised that the universal channels of abundance have flowed so effortlessly into your reality, Kelly. You are one of the most powerful creators I know! So happy for you.

Nancy January 24, 2015 at 4:02 pm

That was great! Interestingly all 3 of them said very short, very specific things that all really resonated with me- “You’re too hard on yourself (male), forgive yourself for the past (female), play with it, make it fun! (child).” Amen!!!

Ken Graydon January 25, 2015 at 11:38 pm

Nancy, I really do hope that you are choosing to make life more fun. If these messages, coming from your deepest self, resonate with you, it’s time to take your life to the light side. The nicest cosmetic you can use is your smile – share it often.

Nancy February 6, 2015 at 11:57 pm

Thanks Ken, playing with that too~~~

Denise VanBriggle January 24, 2015 at 1:29 pm

Thank you, Ken!

Denise VanBriggle January 24, 2015 at 1:27 pm

Wow, Ken, that was powerful!

Lisa January 24, 2015 at 2:26 am

I love how this experiment is revealing things wherever I go! I was watching Tangled with my son tonight, and the lyrics in her “healing song” hit home! Thought it would be great to share with everyone:
Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine
Make the clock reverse
Bring back what once was mine
Heal what has been hurt
Change the fates’ design
Save what has been lost
Bring back what once was mine…
What once was mine
I’ve had what seems to be more set-backs than success so far, but each time I think the set-backs are winning, I receive another positive message to keep me pushing forward! I’m excited about seeing the money, but so fulfilled by all of the “side-blessings”! Thank you!!

Nancy January 24, 2015 at 12:20 am

I’m not seeing away of downloading the MP#???

Linda D January 28, 2015 at 7:03 pm

Try opening in Explorer, then right click, and the ‘save link as” or “save target as” option should be there – it does not show up in Google browser.

Nancy February 7, 2015 at 12:09 am

I can’t save it, the 1st step…

Neva January 23, 2015 at 9:44 pm

Ken, what a wonderful meditation. I love the frequency transmitted in this and had a powerful and very revealing visit with my masculine, feminine and inner child. They all appeared as non-human forms (dolphin, lion and ant) and it was quite interesting to see what the messages were; they were not what I expected. Thank you.

Ken Graydon January 24, 2015 at 3:53 am

Neve, that is exactly the kind of result I hoped you would have. Now that you have met your team in this form you can communicate often for your benefit.

Rodney January 23, 2015 at 9:11 pm

Fantastic audio Ken! Talk about timing, right after the post went up today, I received an unexpected scientific review gig (for $1,600). and it’s from Canada…Thank you Wendy!!!

Beth January 23, 2015 at 7:12 pm

Agree with everything you said! I would like to add that, for folks who are experiencing a lot of fear, resistance, or even an uptick in money problems, be aware that an Experiment such as this is an incredibly effective way of exposing your subconscious money blocks. If you don’t realize what’s happening, it can be very upsetting Don’t despair – they are being brought to light so they can be cleared. Think of it as opening an old closet jammed with old stuff you don’t want anymore. Before you can fill the closet with new things, you have to get rid of the old stuff first! There are lots of ways of doing this – I have found EFT to be very effective. The blocks aren’t always what you think they are – sometimes they seem downright absurd to our conscious minds – but they are running the show nonetheless. For example, at a tapping workshop devoted solely to clearing money blocks, I dug deep and found a belief that I needed to struggle financially to prove to my grandmother (who has been dead for years) that I am a good person. LOL!!! Letting that go was HUGE.

Janice January 23, 2015 at 7:06 pm

Awesome, reverberating, resonating process, Ken. I loved it. Thanks so much for making that available for all of us.
