14 day project day 2

Day 2:

My internet was down, had to wait for 10 more days for my pay check to arrive and  re-active it

So for day 2 I meditated.

After talking with the professor I learned someone else has attempted this before but was unsuccessful so I tried to improve the method and maximize my results.  Upon waking up everyday, I would spend 5 minutes and mediate. In my mind I repeat nothing but the word “money” and I associate the word with a pleasant feeling thus generate a positive wave.

Today was the first day, not much significant results.

Day 3

same meditation but money didn’t just flood in. I have 11 more days to go until my pay check arrive so I was not expecting any extra income to go my way.

Perhaps it is this expectation of not receiving that hinders my mind gathering. I will improve  my thinking even further tomorrow.

Day 4

I paid 35 dollars for gas today.

and spent 1.07 after tax for a twix bar.

Day 5

My laptop arrived.

I paid 957 at black Friday and it took out about seven days ago I believe?

Still not quite what I had in mind but it is still a form of consumerism acquisition so I decided to include it here.

Day 6

GOOD NEWS!

My mom paid my tuition for me!

I was totally expecting to pay for this on my own but after I asked for a loan because my pay check has not arrived she decided to just pay for it instead.

still not in the form of paper money I had imagined but this is still money.

Maybe I am getting somewhere.

Day 7

no association with money today.

I went to school, came home, did homework and slept.

Day 8

I was almost late to professor Barney’s class today so I didn’t have time to meditate.

I paid 2.75 for a pack of bubble gums though.

that’s money lost, not gained.

I’m starting to question the validity of this brain wave again.

Day 9

Friday, I stayed home.

Didn’t go anywhere. no work, no school.

I meditated extra hard though.

Day 10

After going out to eat with my friends, Fernando covered our tab.

so basically I got a free meal from him, I love saturdays. However next time or the next next time i’ll have to treat him back some day so I don’t really see this as a money coming my way.  Still it is something so i included it.

Day 11

I worked overtime today. Kaven did not show up so I had to cover his shift. my normal shift on sunday is about 6 and half hours, but today I worked 8.5

that is the money I worked for, not the “free and effortless income” I had imagined though.

Day 12

I paid another 35 dollars for gas….and 7.89 for combo dish at a Korean BBQ restaruant.

so far I am not having a lot of money swing my way.

Things seem to be more expensive everyday.

_________________________________________________________________________

Day 13

Finally got my pay check today. I’ve been restraining my spending. once again this is the money i worked for, and I did not receive a huge amount.

so far it doesn’t seem to be working but according to the book in chapter 6 a reason for failure is because the user does not think positively.

either way, now I can activate my internet and I’ll have it back up by tomorrow.

Day 14

Today I went home for dinner.

My mother had a tennis match and I went to support her.

Even though she lost she was quite cheerful about it. I saved a little on grocery money but I don’t want to think of my parents as a source of income. Either way, I paid all my utility bills and made a plan for this month’s possible spending. There was a surplus.
