Down the Rabbit Hole

I told you that I was ordering a book that I thought could help me with my stinky relationship with money called "Busting Loose from the Money Game" by Robert Scheinfeld. I finished the book on Sunday and I have to say I found it fun and mind altering. First, let me tell you this book is not for the faint of heart. It puts forth ideas that while I have heard them before, I thought of them as theories, not truth. The biggest one is that the world we see is just a hologram, that our higher selves or expanded selves have created for fun and challenge. Now, I am having lots of fun with that idea, but you can do the work in this book even if you can't totally believe that theory.
The really hard part is the fact that things could get really scary and bumpy while you do the work of changing your patterns or beliefs. I am shaking in my boots, but you know what? I am brave and I am going to go for it, because I have nothing to lose and every thing to gain. This book is not really about getting rich, it is about being free. Some strange things have already happened since I started doing the process, which can take up to a year or two to be completed, and may never be completed! You have to read the book to see what I am talking about, because it would be too hard to relay it all to you where it made sense without quoting the whole book :-).
I plan on doing the work and when something really bizarre happens I will tell you about it and also give you progress reports, although we are not to look for outcomes in this work, there are bound to be some :-). I wish I could tell you more, but like I say this stuff is really hard to put into words. Just, please pray for me because I think it may be a wild ride :-). If any of you buy the book, please let me know so we can talk about it! Happy Thursday! XOXO

This is interesting. I am not sure if we have the book here, every book I see is always about getting rich. At times, I so wish I have no financial burden and be FREE :) Happy weekend Annie and we look forward to seeing how your journey on this

So few people are brave enough to take such leaps as these. But I think they are the kinds of leaps that can transport us to another way of doing reality...a way that is more aligned with how the Universe flows. I know that sentence doesn't make much sense to the uninitiated, but I know you'll know what I mean.

I love the idea of being free, not getting rich! Oh, dear Annie, I wish you all the best in this new adventure, and am looking forward to hearing more about it.

I'm going to see if I can get my hands on a copy of this book, too. But I won't pay retail!

Annie said...

Melanie-Thank you for the link.xoxo
Angela-I did not pay the retail amount either, on amazon they have differnt prices,I paid 15.99. I am excited you are getting the book, we can inspire one another to keep on :-).

Robin said... interesting concept.... I hope it works for you - no matter what, if it inspires you in any way - that is good and I, too look forward to hearing about your new journey!

i learned once at an ashram that handling money is its own spiritual practice and it is important to make decisions about it with respect and responsibility.

i've remembered that for a long time.

Good luck getting into a right relationship with money/work/trust. Be open to the lessons that come your way in this experiment.

I admire you, brave Annie. I know how hard this kind of work can be.
