When selecting a launch date for The $3000 Experiment, co-leader Janice proposed January 1, (our ultimate choice), saying, “We could teach people how not to make this a New Year’s resolution but a time to learn new tools for the rest of their lives.”
One tool that will serve you forever is becoming sensitive to the direct link between your inner world and what manifests in the world around you.
The thoughts and feelings that make up your intangible ‘inner experience’ are a powerful force coordinating physical events and circumstances. Even physical stuff like money.
We want you to have a revelation about this as a result of this experiment.
We chose money as our experiment focus because, for most of us, the prospect of receiving a handsome sum of unexpected money is compelling enough reason to temporarily suspend our usual ‘vibe’ about money long enough to witness the impact this suspension has on our financial picture.
The video below demonstrates this inner/outer link beautifully!
In the video, you see artist Lisa Parks sitting amidst 48 ‘vibration pools’ intentionally feeling specific emotions. She wears a headset that captures her brainwaves as they track the changes in her emotions. (Side note: yes, it’s possible to consciously and deliberately alter your emotions!) Parks’ emotional/brain wave patterns are then broadcast to speakers lying beneath the vibration pools.
The speakers pulse her feelings (via the signals from her headset), creating visible wave patterns in the pools of water above them. Her art form is the vibrating, dancing water created as she alters the waves in the pools by deliberately altering how she feels. (This demonstration is highly relevant to your $3000 experiment because, here, you are deliberately altering your own ‘vibes’ regarding money!)
Park’s project also mirrors the reason for The $3000 Experiment.
She explains, “I started working with […] the headset, because I questioned, how can I take this invisible energy and emotions and make it visible? When I am feeling certain emotions (anger, sadness, happiness), I believe that what’s inside me, more than 60% of water in human body, will create vibrations/energy within myself. So, I wanted to create an artwork that represents the inner part of myself.”
(Note: Skip ahead to 2:05 to go straight to the best part…)
In The $3000 Experiment we are doing the same thing. Only, instead of using water as our medium of translating the energy of emotion into physical structure, we are using money.
Over the 3 months of the experiment, your ‘inner vibration’ about money and abundance is changing. In fact, you are probably already feeling different in certain ways. An intangible change in how you feel, maintained long enough, becomes observable in the physical world you see, touch… and spend.
Its simple physics.
You might notice new feelings of excitement. Optimism. Energy. Possibility. Community. (What else???)
If you’d had Parks’ sensitive equipment on you while you thought of money before, you would have seen, with your eyes, the patterns, in water, that your vibe about money made then.
And if you had her equipment now, you’d see, with your own eyes, how your vibe has already changed.
You might see the water dance when you focus on how you feel about your Transformational Space.
You’d watch the water come alive in response to what you feel when you read these posts. Or when you resonate with a comment left by a fellow participants.
The emotions you feel as you log each positive result, would physicalize as movement in the water. (How cool would that be?)
Even though you don’t have the equipment, you can use this understanding to your benefit by simply noticing any good feelings that arise. Enjoy them… bask in them when they are present!
To take this a step further, an extremely powerful way to solidify any vibe is to write down what you’re experiencing,feeling and noticing.
Writing your realizations and experiences about this experiment down makes them more real, more physical. (Literally, through writing, your intangible experience becomes something … words on a page. Get it?)
Did you silently feel magic when you found that dime in a meaningful place? Were you delighted by an unexpected gift last week? Did you receive a sum so big you’re embarrassed to confess it?
Who are we kidding? We know you did!
Because of the stories you are telling us privately. (Side note: Why is it popular to share these these great stories privately rather than posting them as comments here? If, as a participant, you can shed some light on this phenomenon, we’re curious!)
To enhance the solidification of your changing vibe about money, we want to devote an upcoming post to some of your stories.
So here’s our invitation to you to take a risk!
Think of the most positive thing that has happened to you regarding this experiment so far. And see how it deepens your vibe by writing the story down.
Then… take a big breath and share, with us, the story you wrote!
You can either post your writing here as a comment, or if you prefer, send it to me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll pull some of your stories together (anonymously if you like) in a really wonderful way. Seriously, there’s nothing like seeing your own story woven into an inspirational piece – and we’re offering you the chance!
In summary, marinate in a good-news money story and see what happens! Up your game by writing it down. Play the extreme sport by sending the story to us.
See you back here on Friday, Jan 24, with a great story – and insight – that Janice and Rodney Dietert can’t wait to share!
