“Everybody is a magnet, attracting to themselves that which they are.” –David Hawkins


“Don’t worry. Be happy.”
–Bobby McFerrin

Okay, so you’ve made some goals, set some intentions. But, so far, nothing has shown up. Wanna know why?

You’re trying too hard. You’re trying to force things instead of just relaxing and connecting with the power and genius of the universe.

See this picture. It’s green bean seeds from Experiment No# 6 (The Superhero Principle) in my book, E-Squared.
awesomeness

The reader who sent me this picture made the intention that the back row of seeds would grow faster than the front row.

It worked like a charm, because she knew there was nothing she could personally do to make those green beans grow faster. Except be willing. She had to surrender and believe that her focus and attention was enough.

With most goals and intentions, the ones where there’s something we perceive we should do, we think surrender is not an option. We insist on trying to make our intentions happen. We use force, we manipulate. We get personally involved instead of letting go and letting the majesty of the universe do its glorious thing. The tactic of aggressiveness sometimes works, but it invariably employs “weak energy,” an energy that will always play second fiddle to the simple power of willingness.

Willingness brings openness and flexibility and new possibilities. It’s the prerequisite for changing anything in your life, the starting point for manifesting goodness.

I understand your desire to push, to go, go, go. It’s the cultural norm. We’ve all heard some version of these statements:

“You have to fight for what you want in this world.”

“You have to put your nose to the grindstone.”

“Nothing comes easy.”

“If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.”

But there is another way. And it’s simple willingness.

By cultivating a willing mind and being willing to approach things in a new way, you’ll come from a place of power. You’ll find an energy that unifies, that encourages wholeness.

Yes, this energy is invisible (making it a lot harder to trust for some folks), but, in reality, it’s more tangible and powerful than forcing and grunting and groaning will ever be.

To change your life for the better, you simply connect with the power of the universe and then step back and allow it all to unfold with ease and grace.

  1. As Abraham Hicks says there’s a difference between motivation and inspiration. motivation is kind of forced, it’s action you do to get something however inspiration is very chilled out and pure. It’s more effective. Things really do come to us, we just have to relax and let things pan out in their own way. I would tell myself I have to be searching for jobs everyday and doing something “productive” to get employed and have money. However in the past 3 months I have learned so much about relaxing and enjoying the ride. I have now had job opportunities come up without me searching and money flowing randomly from people :)

  2. Hello Pam,

    Before I ask my question, I have to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed reading your book, E Squared. Experiment 3, “Einstein wands,” blew my mind! I am currently on day 5 of Experiment 6, I set the intention for the right side to grow faster than the left, even though the instructions called for the opposite. It’s day 5, and even though I keep repeating my intention whenever I’m near the plants, the Left side is out growing the right side. I’m not sure what happened. Could you explain why the plants are growing in opposition to the intention I set?

    • That’s a first. As they used to say on Laugh-in, “Velly-interesting!!” I honestly don’t have an explanation. Do you have a theory? Any chance the egg carton got moved around? I don’t know, but if you figure it out, PLEASE let me know!!

      • Thanks for the quick response. Wow, I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately. I’m still celebrating the fact that we (my 6 year old daughter and myself) were able to get one side to grow longer than the other. There’s still 1 more day to go, it’s our hope that the right side will grow super fast before the experiment is over. Two theories have been rattling around in my brain. 1.) it could be a test of faith/belief. That regardless of what reality shows me, I must still have faith in my desired intention. 2. I could possibly harbor an unknown belief that since the experiment called for the left side to grow faster, that is what will happen no matter what. I did read that section several times, perhaps it reinforced that outcome in my mind, so now it’s a belief I can’t get past. There’s still 1 day left, so we shall see. I’ll return with an update.

        Thanks again!
