WEEK Three: Monkey Chi Rice Experiment
As we turn the bend and enter the third week of our 30-day Rice Experiment, here are two snaps of our rice–one front shot, one back shot (taken today). Click on them to enlarge.
I was really surprised by today’s pictures. If you compare them to Week One and Week Two images, the rice levels look much lower. The rice is discoloring, and that jar-that-we-don’t-think-about-that-we-call #3 seems to be separating and decomposing faster than the other two.
I promise we have not done anything physical to the rice. Even though the jars are in our living room, we barely even look at them. They have remained in the same exact spot, tightly sealed, and the only time I have touched them is to rotate them for photos.
We have a few families who have their own Rice experiments going on with us. My friend Julie commented last week that when her children have a disagreeable moment in their home, they now say “take it to the negative rice”, and “we need to work harder on the positive one”. I LOVE that! Children are so amazing and naturally perceptive.
Our intention for this togetherness project is for our experiment to be a catalyst for conversation in your own home, about the power our words and thoughts have on ourselves, each other and our world.
Have you talked about the power of thinking? The power of words? Had any crazy conversations about our rice? We’d love to hear from you. (Comment below on our site.)
It’s not too late to play along with us. For the next two weeks send two thoughts a day to our jars: one positive happy thought to the “I love You” jar, one negative yucky thought to the “You are Gross” jar. (Ignore that other one completely.)
If you like send a message to the rice by posting a comment on our Web site. (Remember this is a family site, Uncle Ron.)
The more the Monkeyer
If you share the experiment with your friends via Facebook or email etc., let me know and I’ll enter you into our drawing to win Monkey Chi Fun including a DIY paint kit, and hide and EeeEeeEeek Monkey game, and other monkey surprises. EeEeEeEe!
Happy thoughts of you,
Becky Jaine and the Monkeys
