Abraham-Hicks is a beloved teacher of mine. For many years, they have been my go-to source for upliftment and inspiration, as well as guidance on the Law of Attraction.
Their book “Ask and It is Given” features a wonderful exercise called “The Prosperity Game.” This game is designed to stir your imagination from a place of abundance. It has you “spend” money mentally each day by imagining yourself buying things. Each day you get $1000 more than the day before, so on the first day you “spend” $1000, on the second you “spend” $2000, and so on.
As they say in the book,
Most of our physical friends really do not exercise their imagination very much. Most people offer their vibrations almost exclusively in response to what they are observing, but by playing this game, you will find yourself reaching for new ideas, and in time, you will feel the expansion of your own desire and expectations. In doing so, you will benefit by shifting your point of attraction.“Ask and It is Given,” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, p179
Here’s how I have been doing the Prosperity Game each day:
- Go onto my phone. Find a site where I am going to “buy” things.
- Scroll through and find items I am interested in.
- Write them down in my “Prosperity Game” journal, noting the cost.
Today was Day 25 for me. That means I “spent” $25,000…. incidentally on a Baldwin grand piano 🙂 Over the past few weeks I have “bought” all kinds of things, including vacation trips for me and Charr, cars, pianos (and keyboards), exercise gear, furniture, and other household items (including luxury foods).
Most of my life, I was programmed to spend as little as possible at all times. As fun as that sounds (haha), it can be a real drag on one’s sense of abundance. The Prosperity Game might as well be a brand new way for me to think. Instead of trying to limit my spending at every turn, I am doing the opposite: making sure the items I am buying are expensive enough! As in, “I like this car, but it’s only $13k, and I need to spend $20k, so what else is there?”
The best part is that it is working! I feel a genuine sense of abundance. Strangely enough, it almost feels like we really have gone on these trips and bought these new cars and pianos! That’s the power of the imagination!
