A couple of nights ago, I was watching TV with my kids and we decided to watch a game show called “a minute to win”. It was a really involving show with two young girls who were really excited to be on the program and to have a chance to win. The won the first prize with ease and their jubilation was infectious, they danced all over the stage and the everyone in the audience was swept up in their energy – so were we. We took an immediate liking to the girls.
The show involved playing party games that you had to win in a minute. The second round gave them $10,000 in winnings. They were all over the place again, hugging, screaming, dancing – you couldn’t help but love them. The anchor then asked them what the money was for.
A wave of love and appreciation swept the audience, and now we were all doubly invested in their winning, and they did! They got up to $50,000. The next round would take them to $75,000.
At this stage, the anchor talked to them further about their mother and asked them to focus on winning the money. He really wanted them to win, but he also wanted to use their story to create more audience buy in and get everyone emotionally involved. He asked them if they wanted to leave with their winnings or go on playing – he asked them what their mom would say.
At that moment, I felt a palpable shift in the vibration of the show. From being uplifting and happy, it went to “Oh my God, I hope they don’t lose now”. You could see the faces of the two girls change as the stakes were raised. Win they did, there was a sigh of relief, and more tension now as the next bar was at $125,000.
The well meaning anchor pointed out to them that they still had three lives in hand. Then he pointed out that the one sister had already played twice and according to the rules if she played a third time then the girls would lose the opportunity to pick who should play. The problem was that the game for this round was one that the sister with two rounds knew how to play and the other one didn’t.
I could see and feel that the unexperienced sister was now scared and her vibration had shifted a fair bit. She could have stopped at this point and let her sister take the round, but she was drive to do what the anchor thought was the right move in the game. She played – and she lost. Now she was totally out of the vortex. The other sister was doing better – by a small margin.

The experience sister took over now – and yes, she lost. And then she lost again. The game was over. Thankfully, the girls still had $50,000 to walk away with.
I couldn’t watch any more. My thoughts were on the law of attraction and figuring out how it had played out in this scenario.
Here are my thoughts:
I think that both the audience and the girls started thinking of the $125,000 mark as big – too big. The vibration changed from “wow! We’re winning” to “Oh my God, I hope we don’t lose – this means so much”
I could see and feel that the unexperienced sister was now scared and her vibration had shifted a fair bit. She could have stopped at this point and let her sister take the round, but she was driven to do what the anchor thought was the right move in the game. She played – and she lost. Now she was totally out of the vortex. The other sister was doing better – by a small margin. She played - she lost. The audience moaned. Now they were all out of the vortex, because instead of seeing the girls win, they were anticipating the loss and that's where they put their focus - the girls could not have bucked that current, or maybe they could have but it would have taken a lot and as Abraham says, when you've already jumped from 10,000 feet, don"t worry, it will be over soon.

In the sense that when you are in a downward spiral it is much harder to stop and make the shift in vibration necessary to change things - because it means taking the resistance head on and then shifting - not too many of us can do it given a few split seconds on public television and a room full of people feeling sorry for us!
It's interesting that I can now see the law of attraction in action all around me. It's exciting and as Abraham says once you learn this stuff you can never go back - good thing is I want to keep going forward!
