Big Reveal video- the rice experiment

Tah-dah… do you remember that little rice experiment we did … uh-hem about a year ago. GULP. Ok, this is a bit embarrassing, but below is our BIG REVEAL video. Ok, Ok, so it’s been a reeeeeeeeeeeeally long time since I shared with you, but I really walk the talk about disconnecting from technology to be with my family. (EeEeEeeeeeeeeeeeee! Thanks for still being here and remaining a Monkey Chi fan.)

Watch our video and please help us spread the word about the power of words!

Remember, the jars stayed in the same place in our home with exactly same light and vibration exposure for 30 days.

After 30 days the “i love you jar” didn’t smell bad, and had minor discoloration. The “you are gross jar” smelled bad and developed some orange mold discolorations. The jar we intentionally “ignored” was putrid and extraordinarily moldy colored, and the water was most separated from the rice in this jar.

Biggest lesson learned: our thoughts and intentions literally impact physical matter. Doing the experiment online with over 400 views during the month of the experiment, and hearing from many friends around the world (countries listed in video) many people were thinking and sending thoughts to our jars. This collaboration made the results far more impressive than when we did it just ourselves.

Our attention is powerful. Our words have power. Our THOUGHTS have power. Every thought we have literally becomes a seed of potential. It’s critical that we and our children consider the power our thoughts and words have on our lives, other people, and our planet. Ask your children … ask YOURSELF, “What thoughts are you planting?”

Here are a few links to some thought provoking research and interviews regarding the power our thoughts have over our reality.

After a sabbatical we are back and will be sharing more love and playful ideas for things you can do with someone you love.

Final Week (four) Monkey Chi Rice and Thought Experiment

Here is the final looksy* at our jars of rice. This week we noticed the most dramatic visual changes. The rice has shrunk in size and in jars #2 and #3 the rice and water have separated even more than last week.

We’ve had friends from around the world sending thoughts to our rice: Thinkers from United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, India, Australia, Malaysia, Brazil, New Zealand and Lithuania. (We are sending you lots of love as we think and talk about the people and places we are hearing from.) If I missed your country, please email me or post a comment on our Web site so we can give a shout out to you too!

We hope to shoot our final Ta-Dah-Big-Reveal video this weekend, to be shared with you as soon as it’s edited and uploaded by our dear friend and talented videographer, Adrienne Drum. (Here are linkies to Monkey Chi Rice Experiment video she created for us on Vimeo or YouTube .)

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 join in our final week. Simply 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.)

The more the Monkeyer

Oh, and 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 thinking,
Becky Jaine and the Monkeys

P.S. The photo is slightly different from previous weeks due to technical changes. I wanted to post photo yesterday, but my computer died and I had to move to a new system and navigate Adobe Photoshop (for the first time) to create this image. TMI? :O)

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.

Oooh, and in case you’re just joining us here are linkies to Monkey Chi Rice Experiment video on Vimeo or YouTube  for the full scoop.

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.)
