An Amazingly Awesome Idea from E-Cubed

OMGFaceFor the past two weeks I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with an idea I got from Pam Grout’s newest book “E-Cubed~Nine More Energy Experiments that Prove Manifesting Magic and Miracles is Your Full-time Gig.” Grout has a practice of getting up every morning and proclaiming the following:

Something amazingly awesome
is going to happen to me today!

What a delicious thought!

If you’re anything like me, upon waking, you probably run through a conversation in your mind that goes something like…

What time is it?
What day is it?
What do I have going on today?
Where do I need to go?
I need to remember to…..
Etc, etc, etc……

I decided to give it a whirl, so as soon as I was lucid, before I got out of bed, I would say

Something amazingly awesome
is going to happen to me today!

On the first day I couldn’t remember the exact words, so I had to grab the book to find them.
On the second day, although I knew it had something to do with amazing and awesome, I had to grab the book again.
And by day three, with just a little concentration, I was able to recall all the words and I made the proclamation, before my feet hit the floor.

Now, just two weeks later, the very first thought I have when I awaken is

Something amazingly awesome
is going to happen to me today!

And here’s the best part~ something amazingly awesome has happened every single day! These amazingly awesome things varied from having lunch with my 87 year old aunt (which I wrote about in my last post) to having two former clients tell me (on the same day!) they wanted to start coaching again, to getting an unexpected call from an old friend at the exact moment I was thinking I should send her an email or give her a call.

But the most amazingly awesome thing came from a client who decided to try it too. She sent me her accountability sheet, prior to our session and in the part where it says “My brightest achievement this week was…” she wrote

REALIZING THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS!

She couldn’t wait to tell me that, just this week, she had received nearly $100,000 of unexpected income! Some of it came from two companies she had worked for over 20 years ago, where she had pension money she had forgotten about. And the rest of it came via a boatload of savings bonds her 85 year old mother had been hanging onto for years and years.

Amazingly awesome!

I encourage you to try this practice; have fun with it! If Earl Nightingale was right (and he was!) that we become what we think about, can you think of a better thought to kick off your day?

HOW Are You Going To Do That?

If there is one thing that seems to hold people back from going for something they truly want, it’s a little word called HOW.  Many people are hesitant to set a goal, because they don’t see a way HOW it could happen.  And we have been conditioned to believe that we need to know how, before we embark on something new.  Well, I’m here to tell you “No, we don’t.”   Continue reading

A Million Dollar Tip For A 40 Minute Trip

Since my usual driver (aka my BFF) was unavailable, I arranged for a car to take me to the airport. As I was walking to the car, the driver said “What time is your flight, cuz we’re gonna hit a LOT of traffic! All week long…TONS of construction on Route 78… it’s horrible!…yesterday it took us an hour and 45 minutes! (should take 30) You better PRAY your flight is delayed!” Continue reading

Think You’re A Positive Thinker? Think Again.

This week I started reading The Power, the follow-up book to The Secret, written by Rhonda Byrne.  This section, from early in the book, really got me (and has kept me) thinking:

“How do you know whether your thoughts are positive or negative?  Your thoughts are positive when they are thoughts of what you want and love!  And negative thoughts are thoughts of what you don’t want and don’t love.  It’s that simple and that easy.”

Not sure if I agree with the easy part, but it certainly is simple.  And, up until I read this next part, I saw myself high on the list of positive thinkers I know.

When you talk about any difficulties with money, a relationship, an illness, or even that the profits of your business are down, you are not talking about what you love.

When I read that, I began to think “Hold on there, Miss Think-You’re-So-Positive!  When is the last time you loved the new carpet you want to install in your living room?  Are you loving the house at the beach you’d like to buy?  And I’m pretty sure I haven’t heard you utter one, single word about loving those wrinkles on your face!”

Hmmmmmmm…. Maybe I’m not as positive as I thought I was.  Maybe I am spending more time than I realized thinking and talking about what I don’t love.  Or talking about what I will love once I have it, without actually loving it now.  Maybe I need to finish reading this book.

And maybe (and by “maybe” I mean “definitely!”) you can help me by sharing your thoughts.  When you have a problem, do you think about loving the solution, or do you spend too long not loving the difficulty?
