Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Many writers would love to get that million dollar contract but it's a pretty elusive beast for all but a handful. However, most writers would still love to have a million bucks so they could find their little tropical hideaway where they would write to their heart's content.

The Million Dollar Experiment might just be a good place to start, that is unless you have a rich relative you're waiting on. Yeah, it's a little new agey, but it can't hurt to try. I'm in. Join me?

It's not a scheme. It's not a scam. It's a positive thinking, group mind thing (I warned you it was new agey). The only investment is sixty seconds of your day to focus on a thought; an intent:

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.

You can do it in meditation or on the john. It doesn't matter, it's just sixty seconds (or more, if you like) of focused thought, feeling and desire. It's a good thought to balance all the less than positive thoughts we have about money - when paying our bills; buying gas at the pump; paying at the grocery store. We're full of them. It's about time we had a few positive cash flow thoughts. And why not start with a very positive number - $1,000,000!

Sounds right to me...and I'm putting it in the pocket of a good man who wants to spoil me! :-)

Fran Friel said...

And Bev, you deserve some extreme spoiling! I think we should start The Million Dollar Baby Club - Founding Members!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sir said...

If I can find this, you should be able to locate the perfect ice.
Have your report on my desk ASAP!

Fran Friel said...

Dear Sir,

I'm afraid the perfect ice is reported to be melting. If you could fund my expedition to the Antartic, I will secure the slippery stuff and complete my report ASAP!

I should have known I'd find you finding me on the million dollar post. Hah!

Thank you, Sir, in advance for your generous funding!

Gratefully,
Your Minion

I love positive affirmations and intentions. I made two copies of this -- one for me and one for my husband. I figure that might double our chances, and everyone else's!

Seriously, if nothing else, it reminds me to purposefully relax and get positive every time I say it. Thanks, Fran. *Muah*

Hi G,

I'm so glad yo like the idea. It's got a very cool feel to me. The guy running the experiment says over 100 people have officially signed-up to participate. I'm sure there are many others who are doing it privately.

I sat in a little meditation with the intent yesterday and had an interesting experience. I'll probably blog about it today.

Keep me posted on how it goes for you and hubby!

To my Minion:

Asking me for funding negates the positive belief that a million bucks is automatically headed your way.

Instead, you should thank me for monies already sent, thereby preserving your positive position.

Love,
Sir

Fran Friel said...

Dear Sir,

Very good point! I see you know your positive thinking details.

However, that million is earmarked for my tropical writer's getaway. The funding I need from you is for the Antartic: Get The Perfect Ice Before It Melts Expedition.

But thank you for making sure I'm straight on this Million Dollar thing. I need all the help I can get!

Sincerely,
Your Minion

I paid attention during What The @$$#%& Do We Know.
The day after I saw that movie, a white rose bush waved at me, and the following week was positively magic.

I get my perfect ice in a bag at the grocery store. Not the stuff with the hole in it...the expensive one that's harder frozen.

Love,
Sir

Fran Friel said...

What the Bleep was a kick. I loved it! Have you started writing on yourself yet? I'm sure if we ever have that martini party, we'll all be writing on each other.

And you know, Sir, that grocery store idea has merit. I'll give it a try. I didn't really want to go to the Antartic anyway - my mukluks have gone out of style.

Fran

Sir said...

The only thing I've written on myself is This Side UP just in case those martinis cause a stumble.

WOW! I've never see coonskin mukluks before!

Love,
Sir

Fran Friel said...

Dear Sir,

You may also want to add a return address, just in case. I suppose I need to blog about What the Bleep. I'll see what I can do.

I think it's the little stripey tail on the mukluks that's the best part. Davey Crocket would be jealous.

Fran

Sir said...

I don't really care to be returned, just don't want to be upended permanently, although it would serve as a warning to others who happen by.

Blog about the Bleep?
They have a great web site.

Love,
Sir
