“Money is usually attracted, not pursued.” – Jim Rohn
In 1990 struggling actor Jim Carrey decided to call upon the universe to achieve financial abundance. He decided to write himself a check for 10 million dollars and dated it for Thanksgiving 1995.
He wrote on the memo section of the check: «for acting services rendered» and stuffed the check in his wallet.
By 1995 he starred in Ace Ventura pet detective, the Mask etc.. and surpassed his initial 10 million dollar goal.
So it worked?
Can writing yourself a check really manifest financial freedom? No idea, but I'm willing to try.
I will take a blank check and write it out for 1 million dollars. I will make the check out to myself and in the memo section (on the bottom of the check ) I will write : «from my online art and blog services.»
(I make illustrations and have my art set up on a few websites but plan to really dig in and do the work to expand my business...more on this later).
I read it's important to offer the universe a service of some sort in return so if you are planning on doing this with me, do not leave that bottom part blank, fill it out.
Since I am 37 years old now, I will date my check three years from now, on my 40th birthday, which is a significant date (for obvious reasons) I read somewhere that I should write that the check comes from The Universe (or God or whatever else rings true with you.)
I'm following Jim Carrey's footsteps and will stick it in my wallet. You can pin it on your fridge or bathroom mirror just somewhere you will see it everyday. And then, I will let the Universe answer my call!
Afterall if Jim Carrey gave that famous commencement speech at Maharishi University of Management’s class of 2014 explaining how he is an example of how one can manifest wealth in their lives. Maybe...just maybe it can happen for all of us.
Here is a snippet of that famous inspiring speech:
«So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m saying, I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it — please! (applause) And if it doesn’t happen for you right away, it’s only because the universe is so busy fulfilling my order. It’s party size! (laughter)»
Something else that merits listening to is the interview he gave while on the Oprah show Oprah's lifeclass» watching, on the power of intention and visualization.
