Actually, there are professional stock-brokers on this forum, I'm sure if they read this, they'll chime in.

I'm not a professional, I've just always liked to play with real money (see my previous post), and now with the online-banking possibility, it's actually easy to PLAY stock-broker also. ::LOL

I'm sure if you look around a bit, in just about every country of the free west, there are online banks where you can play with the stock market without investing for real.  Usually they call it a virtual portfolio.  Maybe you could check it out.  That way you can buy stock with virtual money, so without risk.  You'll soon feel if it's something you like or not.

I've done that too, but as you probably can imagine, I didn't get a lot of fun out of it, because it wasn't REAL money. (I don't like playing Monopoly all that much either, because of the FAKE money) ::LOL

So after only a short while, I was using real money and of course I lost many times, but somehow, even though I was playing with my first (and small) savings at the time, I managed to get over it very quickly, because I remembered how much FUN and EXCITEMENT it was to see the movements the shares made (you can see them change every few seconds on your computer screen, and because it was REAL money I saw moving so much, it was a lot of fun for me).

And the times I won, I was singing and dancing ::singer ::singer ::singer

I'm very interested in economics and I follow the economical news daily.  I know watching the news isn't exactly something that's bringing a lot of positivity for most Abers, but I've always managed to see the positive sides of each and every news item (I'm talking economics, not the "usual" news broadcast) and the negatives don't seem to get to my brain somehow ::LOL

Does this bring any clarity for you ?

But I don't know much about the stock market? What did you end up buying? No that's not important, how did it make you feel?


You shouldn't buy stock just because you like a certain product the company is producing, nor because of the social activities they do.

What you should do is check the financial state of the company, the balance, the future plans, etc,... that's why it's important to keep up with economical news.

You don't have to be an expert though, there are companies who write magazines, stock papers, etc,... where you can sign up for.  Those people have actual analysts and economical specialists and so on among their staff and they give you actual tips on shares to buy.

And following a few basics is also important, like buying different "kinds" of stock, like shares from food companies, IT companies, energy companies, financials, insurance, etc... , also holdings, trackers, ... and not just shares from ONLY one group.

::woohooBelana! It was sooo helpful! Need to chew on this!  Don't like following news, though, but if you say it is possible to rely on some analysis - hmm, I need to ponder.  I like excitement that I feel! Thanks::flowers

I've just signed up for a magazine like that, and of course, there's so much right now that's interesting to buy (because the stock market really crashed over the past 1-2 years) so using ABE principles, what I do is when I read the reports and analysis they make, focus on how the news makes me feel.

Some shares are actually getting me all excited and I know I'm gonna buy them.  Other shares can't excite me at all, reports that are as interesting as watching paint dry... needless to say I won't buy them at all. 

Mind you, it's got nothing to do with how the article is written, sometimes the facts and figures they give sound really good at first, but if I don't FEEL good about it, I'm not buying.

I've had the money in my bank account for a while now, and I've been planning on making a stock-plan, and I've been reading reports, and watching the economics news with even more interest than usual, I didn't really FEEL like diving into the market immediately, so I didn't start buying yet.  And then a few days later I see all shares dropping, all over the world, they were coming down again, slowly, but still, had I bought, then my shares would have started dropping right from the start. 

When I see the markets going down, I'm happy about it and think: "YAY, they come down, next week it'll be even cheaper for me to buy, I'll get more shares for the same amount of money". ::singer

I started buying my first shares yesterday, only a few, and depending on how the market makes me feel, I'll be adding every few days, weeks, months,... whatever I feel like.  With Abe's teachings, I've learned not to get nervous and chase the stock anymore, only to get disappointed later.

Now I'm listening to my IB calling me or holding me back, and depending on which way it goes, I'll be buying or holding off on buying for a while.

BOY, this is EXCITING ::singer  ::singer  ::singer

As I was going on with re-reading my diary, I found an entrance that was written about a year ago, that you might find interesting.  I know I did :) 

The text written in italics is the actual text written in my diary (and the text in little print is added to make things a little clearer about what was going on)

***

What I'm living is a direct result of my vibration.

What anybody else is living has got nothing to do with me.

I should make my choices and decisions based on what I want, without considering what's in it for others. (at the time, I was having issues with a certain person, and I was more involved with what results my decisions would bring them extra, than I was with what it would change for me).

It's all about how I'm feeling, I'm feeling good about the work I'm doing.  I'm not going to bang things into place anymore.  It'll come when the time is right and if it doesn't, that just means something better is waiting for me.

I don't have to physically be in our new house, to live there, it's all about thoughts and imagination. (we have been wanting to move to a bigger place for quite a while now, but finances and other "practical problems" have kept us from finding the right place so far)

There's no rush to do anything, I can do whatever I like, whenever I like.

I could live my life imagining and nothing more.

I could only "do" something when I felt a strong calling to do it.

What if I filled my days with reading, meditating and imagining ? Wouldn't I be drawn to the exact right action at the exact right time ?

It's been a really long while since I last worried about something, it's now a habitual thing to just let go and let be and let everything work itself out, so what if I stopped asking questions alltogether about how to improve things, how to attract more work, etc... Wouldn't the perfect ideas present themselves on a silver platter while meditating, reading and doing fun or relaxing things ?

So far for my diary entrance.  Reading it all back, I notice that up till a point I have been doing this "letting go" pretty well at times.  I've gotten pretty good at not caring anymore what other people think about what I'm doing or not doing.  And while meditating, so doing nothing but imagine and live in a fantasy world, I've gotten great ideas and inspiration on many occasions. 

The pracicality of daily life prevents me from doing it all day long so far ::devil but to me, it proves that taking only one day once in a while to PLAY instead of work, and taking only an hour a day or so during the other days, can actually make a big difference.  The hour spent in virtual reality doesn't even have to be spent in one go, you can cut it into pieces of 5 minutes now, and 10 mins.later...

I've experienced that "working" this way, so act after virtual reality actually saves so much time, that the time spent daydreaming is actually "extra time" that's created, because the work, once started, gets done the way it's done best.  Without the daydreaming, the work would be started immediately, and after ... hours, only to notice that's not right, it should be done in another way, to start all over again, and in doing so, losing a lot of time, and waisting unnecessary efforts...

So daydreaming / spending time in virtual reality, physically creates more hours in the day.

:kiss:

Belana

P.S.: in case you hadn't noticed, I'm spending today the way I like, and only work when I feel like it today.

"So daydreaming / spending time in virtual reality, physically creates more hours in the day."

Thank you for validating what I've known instinctively for the past 3 years. I call it creating space/4th dimension time management/building capacity. Time starts having this very elastic quality when I play. It seems the more I "play" the more time I have to do all the things I "have" to do. Then, all those things aren't even "have to's" anymore. I enjoy them. That creates even more time.

I learned this when I did the Artist's Way. It's awesome. Must play more!::tramp::tramp::tramp

Yes, my parents were cool during childhood, but I didn't know that was special, to me it was just normal ::LOL I guess I thought everybody played with money the way I did ::LOL

Yes Wakati, you've got it, totally works that way for me also ::cool

I've just found another money-game in my diary for you guys.  Seems that half a year ago I did this one for a while and it's a real easy one. 

All I did was look at my bank statements at least once a day, or better said, look at the total amount in the account, never looked at how much was going out, only looked at how much was in there.  If you do this every day, it's like there's new money every day (to add to your pile). ::money

Expanded my money-vibes...

That's so ::cool Belana!

I had a large injection of cash into my account in December, and after reading your thread yesterday, I remembered that I'd intended to keep my bank statement on my desk so I could 'see the money going in every day....' so I dug the statment out, and yes, it felt really good to see the amount going in to my account. Just checked it again and I'm feeling the flow of money.... ::woohoo  ::grapevine

::TU for the inspiration!

With love,

Rach

Would you guys believe that yesterday I received some money in my bank account that wasn't even meant for me ? ::LOL I've NEVER had that priviledge before. ::LOL

I've never heard of that person, I'm sure they don't owe me any money, but still, they made a payment to my account. ::LOL

O.K., I know this must be a mistake, and the amount will probably disappear automatically again, with appologies from the bank for the mistake, but still, I note that I'm receiving more money and it comes through VERY unexpected sources. ::LOL

That happened to me one time, too!  It was years ago, and I had not thought of it in years.  I went to check my balance to see if I had enough to pull out $20.  (Note:  I was not sure I could!!)  And, voilĂ :  $29.483.87!!  It was the BEST feeling!! I think it was a little taste of my escrow.  THAT particular money didn't stay in my account, but now that I think about it, it was right about then that things started turning around for me financially!!  Pretty cool!

I've got an Abe quote for you guys that explains a lot:

The Subject of Money Is Really Two Subjects. . .

The subject of money is really two subjects: (1) money, plenty of money, and (2) absence of money, not nearly enough money. Often people assume that because they are speaking the words "I want more money," they are speaking positively about money. When you are feeling fear or discomfort as you speak, you are not speaking of the subject of money, you are speaking of the subject of not enough money. And the difference is very important, because the first statement brings money and the second holds it away.


--- Abraham

The difference can be very subtile, it takes a bit of practice to "catch" your thoughts on this, but once you get it, it's another one of those "automatic" thought roads that are created within your brain.

Not at all. It was many years ago.

I agree that investing can be an exiting game.

But before you start a game do you learn the rules of the game? Do you take a risk that you can not afford?

Maybe you give all your money to someone that tell you he has a lot of experience and tell him : "you play for me, call me when we win" (usually he call you later but not when you win)

If you like the game of money - play it !! Just train yourself to be a winner before you start
