The Power Of Intent
Rice Experiment

Day One.

by Rev James Jones

Can words make a difference in the out come of things?  Like life, death, growth and the world around us.  Let’s give it a try and see.  My wife Shannon (@BBWBeautys on twitter) has agreed to participate by conducting an experiment.  Does the power of intent work?  Her first goal is thirty days.

What she’s working with;

  1.  Three sterile glass jars
  2.  Three cups of rice
  3.  Three different intentions
  4.  A marker
  5. A kitchen steamer full of boiling water

“Using a kitchen steamer. I placed the jars, lids, utensils and seals in the top and steamed them for 10 minutes to be sure they are sterile. I placed them on a clean towel to air dry.” -Shannon Jones

On each jar she will label the intention.  Love, hate and ignore.  Rice has been around a long time for a reason, it stores well if kept dry.  A food source that can be easily stored.  Shannon will sterilize three glass jars and pour a one cup of rice into each jar.  The one marked love will receive words of love and encouragement.  The one marked hate will be talked badly to, while the one marked ignore will be totally ignored.  Nothing should happen to any of the jars, rice should easily store for thirty days.

Sterilizing the Jars

We will post an update video at TheKnowledgeful‘s You Tube channel every Saturday for the month of March and the first week of April.  After thirty days if there hasn’t been any results we will add equal amounts of water to each jar and repeat the process.

As a side note, Shannon isn’t the only one talking to the jars of rice.  By day two my daughter and her SO readily added words of encouragement and discouragement to the appropriate jars.  Shannon already feels sympathy for the ignored jar whom by the way got the small jar just as intended.  Will anything happen?  There’s only one way to find out.
