GRATITUDE is Always the Answer

Pam Grout is the amazingly awesome author of #1 NY Times Bestseller E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality, and yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with her.

I told her about a young woman I met (who, interestingly, stumbled upon me because of a comment I left on Pam’s blog. Whaddaya know!) who is struggling with feeling depressed and worries that she will never feel better again. Lana, which is not her real name, said she’s “tried everything” and nothing seems to work. We had a good conversation and I gave her a few suggestions, which should help.

I asked Pam what she would suggest for someone who is really feeling STUCK (physically, emotionally, financially, creatively…) and she said, without question,

GRATITUDE

When we shift our focus away from what’s wrong and towards what’s right, our reality shifts, almost immediately. Our problems might not instantly disappear, (unless they do) but they do begin to improve, almost immediately.

Pam said “If you have a closet with a change of clothes and a refrigerator to keep your food cold, you’ve won the lottery! And the best way to create “riches” is to see and appreciate all the blessings you already have, like the sun coming up and your heart beating…”

She went on to say “Certain things do need our thought, so spend a certain percentage of time thinking about those things, but then spend an equal percentage of time thinking about the possibilities. We only continue to create the same-old-same-old because we continue to punctuate it in our mind; we continue to think about it constantly, when there is so much more that is possible.”

And there you have it~ Gratitude is the answer. It is always the solution to the problem. If in doubt, just ask Pam Grout. laughter In fact, her newest book, (with a kick-butt title, which I promised not to share) which is due out soon, is

ALL ABOUT GRATITUDE.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to E2

The very first experiment in my new favorite book, E2 by Pam Grout, tells us to ask for a blessing or unexpected gift from the “Field of Potentiality” (the FP) or God or the Universe or Infinite Intelligence or whatever higher power you believe in. You set a 48 hour limit and you ask for “a thumbs up, a clear sign, something that cannot be written off as coincidence.” Continue reading

What You Appreciate Appreciates

This was the beautiful scene I enjoyed on Friday

This was the beautiful scene I enjoyed on Friday

That’s a quote from the book E2 by Pam Grout. This week my master mind partners and I are doing the last experiment, which is called “The Fish & Loaves Principle.”  The hypothesis is that
if I change my outlook and make a concerted effort to look for goodness, beauty and abundance, it will show up in spades”. Continue reading
