What have been your reactions to prosperity/spending game?
Hi friends! I wanted to start a new topic on this thread, I know a lot of us are playing prosperity/spending games in the forums, but I'm curious to know what kind of experiences/ physical manifestations/resistance people have had during or after playing. Internal stuff, but also if you've seen anything interesting in the outer world?
I ask because while I was in my Saturday writing group this weekend, a woman shared a blurb of her writing and it was all about how she hated the rich and how it was wrong to spend money when others were going without. I observed it, and felt a little push back/resistance inside, but then just let it flow out as best I could. Then during the next break, another woman struck up a conversation with the first woman, all about how she felt the same, hating the rich and how it was horrible that they had to hire someone to help them spend all their money. She then went on to discuss her own circumstances (living on disability, limited income, etc.) and they two bantered back and forth for five mins or so.
Again, I felt a little resistance about the conversation, because they were basically talking about exactly what I've been doing- spending gobs of money. I thought this was an interesting projection of the beliefs and resistance I might still be holding on to.
Anyone else have anything similar happen? I can start a new thread too- I know this is a bit off topic, but I know it happened because I'm expanding, totally a projection of what's still inside. One of those things that's actually kind of creepy because it's exactly what's on your mind. Even though I don't feel like I'm feeling that resistance when I'm doing this exercise every day. I'm having so much fun spending this income! But obviously I still have questions in my mind re: the nature of money and spending and who deserves what, what I deserve to have. And most obviously I guess, how I would feel that people hate me (including perhaps my family) if I did have so much money.
Please share your thoughts! So many interesting perspectives on this forum!

I stopped playing that game because I realized that I first have to resolve my internal conflicts.
It was hard to play because all I wanted to do is to give my money away, to charity, animal shelters, my family, friends, people who need the money...
I feel great when I buy stuff for other people but when I buy sth to myself I feel guilty and all I can think of it is... But I could saved some dogs with that money, I could buy my mother sth nice etc...
And it has been like that for me in the real life too since I can remember.
An event that happend the other thay... I was babysitting and the woman wanted to pay me the hours I worked and wanted to pay me for half an hour longer because she was late, I didn't take the money and I said that'ok, you don't have to pay me for that (basicaly I worked for free), I felt such a GUILT I would take the money from her it was terrible...
And she would only pay me for my working hours. I felt like a bad person for wanting to take the money.
I have some serious issues with money... I feel like I don't deserve it and every time I get a salary it makes me feel that I am taking someone's money away... Argh...
My mind can't even understand how some people can steal, it's complete abstraction to me...

So, no matter how you feel, or what fears the money game brings up, my best advice is just to keep on going. I went through all that myself, when my fears came up and couldn't decide if I wanted to continue with the game, but did realize the good feelings I was feeling about money were giving me some half-way decent results. So all in all, it was a great learning experience. We do need to spend, even if it's just a few minutes a day, feeling good about money, at the least it can have a balancing effect and cancel some of your negative money beliefs.
So that's the essence of the money game, to change your feelings, even though it seem's like your wasting your time, if you can hang in there.... things will happen for you. If you need more help with this whole thing, I would highly recommend reading the Abraham books, I've read them all, and they go over this endlessly from several different points of view and somewhere in the middle of it all,.... you might just finally get it and be able to say... "ah now, I understand what I need to do".
Remember, you were manipulated by society to hate money or dislike it or fear it in the first place, now what you're trying to do is manipulate yourself back to a place of feeling either neutral towards money or feeling good about it. I've also noticed people with somewhat neutral feelings about money, have a tendency to draw it to them....so moving yourself even slightly towards a more feel good thing about money is helpful.

I think it is interesting how the universe brought you to these 2 ladies and their conversation about the rich - is it any wonder why these 2 are not rich themselves? They certainly would not want to be hated! This is also the belief I have to overcome since I am pursuing a big lottery win. Obviously you come into millions and you are rich - if you still have the belief that noone will like you or that you will be all alone or people will only like you for your money - then that could cause you to try to get rid of the money to be back to your old self (and likable).
But when you look at rich people like Oprah, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet and you look at all the good things they are doing with their money - then it is easier to accept being rich. And hey, you know when you are rich - there are still going to be people who are jealous and do not like you because of that reason.
Also, I think women in general have a lot of hangups about money, being powerful and receiving money. A man would have no problem receiving money for a job, but many women were taught as little kids that it is not a good idea to be powerful or men may not like you and women always want to be liked! So there is definetly the need for women to not only come into their power and know that it is safe to do so (and a real man would never be threatened by a womans power), but to also realize they are worthy and deserving of being paid what they are worth.
In my business, I do not put up with this bull sh**. I own a housecleaning business and this is a business where your worth and value are constantly being challenged. Luckily, I now see the hidden gifts in this business because it has changed how I view myself, money, receiving and worth issues. I will NOT take on any client who does not want to pay me what I am worth. I AM worth it and this job has taught me to ask for what I want and get it! I am starting to see the underlying gifts that this business has taught me in preparation for winning the lottery. I have also come into a lot more power and strength and negotiating skills due to the business. This is also a business where the vast majority of housewives do NOT pay to have their house cleaned because they do the cleaning themselves so
a lot of people have hangups about paying someone to clean their house so they do not want to pay a lot of money. Luckily, over the years as I have changed my belief system - I have higher paying clients as a result of this.
Oh and let us not forget all the illegal aliens in this business who are willing to work for peanuts (don't even get me started on this one! lol!) There is a huge group of people who do NOT see themselves as worth a lot. I believe when they really start to change their beliefs (as well as everyone around the world working for peanuts) there is going to be a lot of changes on this planet. What cracks me up are the people who call me and are not happy with their current housecleaner and yet they want me to do a BETTER job for the same money they were paying their current crappy cleaner! This is unbelievable to me and they definetly get a quick lesson from me on the fact that you get what you pay for and either they pay me what I am worth and will do a better job or they can find another crappy housecleaner. Very rarely, do I get someone who moves on to someone and if they do, then I know they were not right for me.
Money is a hot topic and very controversial and most people have a love - hate relationship with money. If you want to be rich it is important to extract these beliefs out and release them. My one dominating belief is that I have to work hard for my money or I don't deserve to receive it. Now, isn't it ironic that I picked a very physically demanding business like housecleaning? This is my dominant belief at work here!
What I am doing now -(because I have had it with this belief running the show) is I am asking the AA, angels, God and the ascended masters to not only work on me day and night and extract this belief, but I am also asking them to take me to the highest healing hospitals and highest healing centers in the spirit plane while I am sleeping for additional healings on my mind, body and spirit.

All such great insights! Yes, I agree that the two women were a fascinating manifestation. It's like watching a movie play out sometimes, the way you see those internal conflicts in your physical realm.
I do keep working on this, and I know it's getting better. The belief that I'm casually instilling into my subconscious now is that this all works in spite of myself. I tend to beat myself up when I question and doubt, and when I don't see the results I want to see. It's like I assume I'm doing it all wrong and totally failing. We all have our little issues with money, it's so true. Sometimes I just want to give up the ghost but I keep going because I know it wouldn't be important to me if I wasn't capable of achieving, right? I do believe that one can accomplish and contribute so much more in a life of abundance rather than a life of poverty. Being so wrapped up in my own issues when I'm worried about finances helps no one, and it can become so cyclical. I like playing the game because it gives me some insight. I also have several friends who are either able not to work or are working from home- which is really what I want. We only see in the world what resonates within...

I took over a week off and I can say that I saw a difference.
I noticed when I was in that mind set I often did have the money, making decisions for my goals seemed easy. The feeling of needing to wait was removed.
I got a rush and crazy flow of activity at my door to the point I didn't have time to search what it is I want. I always comparison shop and then look at the best way to get it that would make sense logically to fit in the story.
When I stopped posting though. More issues just started coming up, I was questioning my decisions and the way I spent my money.
I am at it again to see if I can increase that activity once more spur me on faster to my true goals.
I will post the difference i feel between both games later.
