“The Secret” (avail. at Abebooks.com“) and “manifesting money” is much talked about these days. Personally, I lean towards the conventional – developing our savvy, paying attention to how we handle money, and seizing opportunities. I also think being ‘poor’ (whatever that means) is no reflection of character, and certainly doesn’t mean a person simply hasn’t grasped any particular ‘secret’. I think of Jesus, Dorothy Day, Ghandi who knew life is about a lot more than your material life. Indeed, the monks in Burma have reminded us that life is more than life itself!
However – I’m also open to possibility and in that spirit and frankly, a large element of fun, I’ve joined in on Steve Pavlina’s “Million Dollar Experiment“. Here’s the gist. By spending time daily reflecting on:
In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all, I intend $1,000,000 to come into my life and into the lives of everyone who holds this intention.
the goal is for each participant to manifest $1,000,000.00
OK, C’mon you skeptics (hmm. I’m one too. How will that skew my results?), you gotta admit, it’s fun and its cheaper than the lottery (which I never do).
(ps. I’m a little less skeptical than previously thanks to one of my clients. A twenty-something, I saw her over the course of a year practice manifesting, meditating, and I saw the results, month after month. It was beyond the usual – almost freaky.)
