Ready to Play for Prosperity?
Hi, welcome to the member video blog that I’m entitling, “Playing the Prosperity Game.” This member video blog is designed to go with the public video blog under the “Bargain-Hunting Pitfalls” series which was called “Making Due With What’s Available.” In that video blog I talked about how bargain hunting really is a responsive move in the world. We’re looking around at what’s available at a cheap price, and we’re bringing it into our lives even though it doesn’t really make us happy or maybe even fulfill any need we have.
I suggested that the path to true abundance is to not be responsive but to really be creative and manifesting. Get in touch with our desires so that we’re able to bring into our lives what we really love, what really enriches us and makes us happy. The practice we have today comes from this book “Ask and It is Given.” It’s a book by Esther and Jerry Hicks. If you’ve done any research on the Law of Attraction or looked on YouTube you’ve undoubtedly run across Abraham Hicks before. This book is really nice. It goes through the principles of the Law of Attraction and gives some really neat practices.
The Prosperity Game Practice
The practice we’re looking at today is what they call “The Prosperity Game.” I have read this practice before and I think it’s really fun, but I’ve never done it – I’m a little intimidated by it! Every day you pay yourself a salary. The first day you put a $1000 in your mental “bank account.” You think about what you’re gonna do with that money. Then you write checks for what you’ve purchased. Literally sit down and write checks!
The second day you pay yourself $2,000. The third day you get $3,000. Every day you’re increasing your salary by $1,000, which means every day you have more and more money to spend. Of course you can bank the money if you want, but the challenge is for you to really get in touch with your desire – what do you want, what would make you happy, what makes you vibrate and spin? If you do this everyday for a year, you deposit it and spend more than $66 million! That’s a pretty hefty practice in imagination and desire.
Fun, But a Little Scary, Right?!
Even though it is imaginative and it seems very fun and playful, this game actually really intimidates me. I think it’s because it’s like going to the gym every day of your life, really exercising these muscles of desire and imagination. I imagine my imagination muscles are going to get stronger and stronger until they change my life. In a good way, of course, but any kind of change is a bit nerve-wracking to the mental energy field!
As I’m making this video now I’m going to commit to doing this. I really think it’s time for me to try it, and I don’t want to ask you to try it if I won’t do it! I will go ahead and start this practice for myself and I would love to how it works for you too. I hope that’s helpful for you today and I look forward to talking to you soon. Bye!
