Deal or No Deal and the Universe

1 03 2008

Deal Box 2Now that I am regularly going to the gym, I’ve been watching more television that usual as I sweat on the cross trainer or treadmill. Yesterday I  saw an episode of Deal or No Deal.

 A woman was playing who shared that she had been through some difficult times due to a disability and was in financial difficulties. Noel praised because of her ‘positive belief’. Toward the end of the game, she had only two boxes left. She announced that she had ‘asked the Universe to put the £250,000 in box 22’. She opened the box, which contained only £5.

I guess the ‘Universe’ didn’t listen to her.

Does she realise that she is praying?

It isn’t praying to God, but it is certainly praying – what else would you call asking a higher power outside of oneself to perform a supernatural act on our behalf?
