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.”

One of my clients just started the book and I decided to do the experiment with him. The clock was ticking and I decided to spend a little time in my journal, but wanted to use my favorite pen, which I couldn’t locate. I thought it might be in my purse and when I went there to look, not only did I find that pen, I also found this sticker, which I had never seen before.

A few minutes after the 48 hour deadline had passed, my client (I’ll call him Brian, because that is not his name) texted me “He’s late!”

A little while later Brian called me to tell me “it didn’t work.”

A little relevant background on Brian:
He is open-minded enough to play with me, but skeptical, intelligent and “realistic” enough to get in his own way.
Aren’t we all?

He said “Well there was this one thing, but it didn’t count because it was already there.” He proceeded to tell me how, right after our session, he was having a final inspection on a home he built. The inspector was crossing all the T’s and dotting the I’s, so Brian could be released from the bond held on the property.

They couldn’t locate the surveyor monuments (4″ X 4″ wooden posts, marking the borders of the property). The inspector told him he’d need to bring in a surveyor to install them (a $2,000 project) and then the bond could be released.

Brian felt certain that those posts were there and he continued to look, despite the inspector telling him they weren’t. Lo and behold, he found them! Now not only would he not have to pay a surveyor to install them, the bond could be released and he could get his money back.

Although he was very happy, Brian didn’t feel that counted as his sign, because “it was already there.” WHAT?! So was the heart-shaped sticker, in my purse.

We began what felt like a bit of a debate to me; I wanted him to shift his perception, let go of his skepticism and acknowledge what seemed like a very obvious blessing/sign to me. And he wanted me to agree that we shouldn’t count something that was already there as a sign. Unfortunately, our call was disconnected before we had the chance to really get into it.

I was stunned.

In E2, Grout tells us that God has quite a sense of humor. To me, this was a costly, inconvenient, yet hilarious sign. Brian is still trying to figure out if I might be right.

I’ve been accused of reading into things too much, so tell me what you think.
Did finding those surveying monuments “count” as a sign, since they were “already there”?
Was getting a ticket for using a phone while driving also a sign?
Have you read E2 yet?

Don’t Panic; Feel Grateful

Just re-learned a great lesson from a client. I say RE-learned because it is definitely something I already know, yet I don’t always remember. The lesson is that we need to appreciate things we already have; like our heart beating or our air conditioning working or, as my client is now experiencing, the software which runs his entire company functioning.

A Sign from my Mom~on Mother’s Day!

Anyone who has lost their Mom misses them just a little extra on Mother’s Day. Since that was the case for me, I spent part of the morning looking at old pictures, cards she’d sent and even more time wondering where the HECK she went when she died 27 years ago.

I’ve always believed in the eternal nature of the spirit and (as I explain in this story) when my Mom passed away, any shred of doubt about that quickly vanished. She sent and continues to send me “signs” which intensify my belief. Here’s what she “sent” on Mother’s Day…

I have no idea WHY, but I decided to Google my Mom on Sunday. When the idea came to me, I thought “Well, that’s silly! She died way before the Internet even existed ~you’re not gonna find anything!”

Despite the common sense which was trying to occupy my mind, into Google I typed my Mom’s name:

HONEY MURNANE
(Her real name was Olga, but few people knew that and no one ever called her that; she was Honey!)
And here is what popped up! 

 Umm, yes; as a matter of fact, she IS!

Umm, yes; as a matter of fact, she IS!

A book, titled “Honey on Your Mind” written by a young author named Maria (Are-You-Kidding-Me?!) MURNANE!

Well knock me over with a feather! Happy Mother’s Day Mom, and thank you for that amazing gift! Keep ‘em comin’; I look forward to unwrapping many, many more!

And if you are missing your Mom this Mother’s Day, I wish a sign for you :-)

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
