Peek-a-boo. I be you. The secret to real-time manifestation.

“The second I decide something is done, it’s done. I just have to wait for all y’all to see it.”—Will Smith

Or in my case, I have to wait for myself to see it.

The minute I make an intention, it’s real, it’s a viable creation. But until I can feel it and actually “be it,” my intention stays on a vibrational plane that’s out of my sight.

Making intentions is never the problem. What we intend is already present. It’s just that you and me and everybody else is stubborn enough that we keep staring at its lack. Until we can catch up vibrationally, we are unable to see and enjoy our fabulous creations.

As I heard Esther Hicks once say, “We’ve already created enough joy and happiness for 20 or 30 lifetimes.”

I hope this is a comforting thought. That our only responsibility is to get ourselves tuned into the joyful vibration where blessings flow, to begin resonating to the vibrational catalog of fun, love and laughter. We literally have to distract ourselves from all thoughts and emotions that block the natural flow.

Most of us are really good at the first part of the equation. Making the intention. But the second part, the part where we get out of our own way and allow love and joy and the new Mercedes Benz into our sphere of awareness is often more problematic.

So for right now, forget about your intentions. Just focus on every brilliant, juicy, fun delicious thought you can think of. Be grateful for every little thing. That’s everything that even remotely resembles your intention and everything that doesn’t. When joy is the dominant emotion, you’ll be able to pull good things out of the air like magicians pull rabbits out of hats.

Three more reasons to call off the “life sucks” routine and start conjuring up magic

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”—Carl Sagan

Like Kevin Spacey, I play many roles. I’m a mom, a dishwasher, a journalist, a pickleball player. Recently, I’ve also been called to act as a town crier. To stand on the street corners of the blogosphere and scream, “Extra, extra. Read all about it. Life loves you. All you have to do is quit fighting and start noticing the magic.”

In that capacity, I’d like to pass on the following three stories that recently popped up in my inbox or what I jokingly call, my personal self-help channel. Enjoy!

1. “I would like to share with you my miracle, as you are collecting them. Soon after I asked the Universe to show me something cool, I put on an antique record from 1951 called American Indian Songs of the Southwest, which included a Zuni raindance. I was thinking how cool it would be if it could rain when I played the record, but then I didn’t think about it again.

I was three-quarters of the way through the record and enjoying the music, when my apartment was hit by a big downpour! I was totally impressed. And, the rain mostly stopped when the record finished.

Later, I looked up the weather forecast for my town for that day and the forecast called for zero preciptation, and the whole day had been really nice weather. Now, that’s a miracle.”

2. “My hubby and I had been talking things over and working through the exercises without much conclusive success. I still believed in the FP, but we had both written the butterfly experiment off as not successful. So about maybe two weeks later, I was looking out in the backyard and saw two huge beautiful butterflies feeding on some flowers. I called my husband over to show him and we joked about the experiment. As we were admiring them, out of absolutely nowhere, a stray cat jumps up, rips one of the poor creatures right out of the air and proceeds to eat it!

“Needless to say we were a bit dumbstruck… But wait, it gets better! Only a day or so later our back porch becomes practically infested with caterpillars! There was a constant supply of them on the INSIDE of our screened in porch, plus many more crawling up the outsides! It was crazy! I would attempt to scoop them up to release them in the far corner of the yard only to turn around and have like a dozen more popping out of nowhere! Needless to say I told my husband it may well be time to shut off the experiment before the universe REALLY got crafty… (The next day they were all but gone.)”

3. “I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for sharing your words and experiments with the world. I’ve been through many trials in life, as everyone has; my daughter was born in January of 2014 with only the right side of her heart. Dakota has undergone two open heart surgeries so far, but today she is a happy 20-month old, learning and lighting up the room with the sound of her laughter.

“She has changed our lives completely and has inspired me to change my perspective, which has opened countless doors in just the last few years. After reading E-Cubed, I began to really understand the way manifestation works — and the keys to success: JOY and FUN! Letting go and letting God. My husband and I have been struggling financially for the last few years and I’ve been encouraging him to raise his awareness and to BELIEVE that good will come. I’ve made him aware of angel numbers as well, encouraging him to look around and notice the synchronicities that let us know we are not in this alone, that all is well and everything is for the greatest good of all.

“Two weeks ago, we received a check for $28,000 — just because. Our lives have been changed, we have the ability to really kickstart the life we’ve been longing to live, to raise our kids in a better place and to live more authentically. Thank you so much for being a beautiful inspiration in the world. I look forward to using these tools as I write my own book about the magic of miracles.”

Thanks, guys. I appreciate all of you so much.

Uptown Funky Wonk and other reasons to have the best weekend of your life

“Only when we are at our most playful can Divinity finally get serious with us.”—Elizabeth Gilbert

Konnichiwa, my friends, which is Japanese for “How in the heck are you?”

I’m just back from the Land of the Rising Sun where I spent a glorious eight days with the founders of the Universal Share Project. We visited temples and shrines in Kyoto, went to Tokyo’s famous Robot Restaurant and raised the consciousness of the planet. If you don’t believe me, check out these videos.

Some of my readers even met me at the airport with hats made from my picture and a piñata-like device that poured out feathers and yellow butterflies. As I told someone at pickleball this morning, I sorta felt like the Beatles.

Per usual, I also heard lots of “You are never going to believe this” stories. In fact, Happy (how can you not love anyone named Happy?) said that one year before I arrived, she wrote down her intention that I would come to Japan. And when Happy decides something, step back, Jack! I just read her first book (translated into English just for me) which is living proof that the Law of Attraction works.

The book basically details her journey of using the power of her thoughts to become an author. When she started her blog in March 2014, she describes herself as an ordinary girl in her 30’s (although like all of us, she’s far from ordinary). She had a grand total of zero followers and little chance of securing a publishing deal.

Using nothing but her connection to the F.P. (the field of infinite potentiality), Happy was able, in a mere six months, to attract enough followers that her blog became the No#1 LOA blog in Japan. Needless to say, a publishing deal was inevitable. Last I heard, she’s writing book number three.

I’d also like to share a story about one of my translators, a beautiful soul named Hiromi. For a while, she was married to an American and lived in Arizona. During this time, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Instead of submitting to surgery, the recommendation by her Western doctor, she returned to Japan and began visualizing a healthy body. She held fast to her knowing that, in Truth, she was whole and perfect. Well, guess what?

Within a year, she was indeed…..all together now…whole and perfect. Her breast cancer vacated the premises.

And since it’s Friday, here’s a great video to inspire what is guaranteed to be the best weekend of your life.

Two more reasons to believe in magic and miracles

“At any time I still expect that the no-talent police will come and arrest me.”—Mike Myers

I chose the Mike Myers quote because my hosts in Japan just sent me the video they produced to open my talk this Friday in Tokyo. According to the translation, the last line says, “The World Top Master Pam Grout is here for the first time in Japan.”

I almost fell out of my chair. They must have me confused with someone else. Some other Pam Grout. I’m just a writer who likes to share stories about magic and miracles.

The only part that rings true is that I will be in Japan for the first time. Or wait? Even that’s not 100 percent true, since I did have a brief layover at the Tokyo airport when I went to Hong Kong for a travel story a few years ago.

Studies show that more than 70 percent of us suffer from what’s known as impostor syndrome. Which means, in reality we are ALL way cooler, more talented, more masterful than we think.

So now that I’ve re-composed myself, I’d like to share a couple E2 stories that recently landed in my inbox:

The first story comes from Aakriti:

I am a freelance writer based out of New Delhi, India and earn my living writing various gigs for websites and clients based all over India. Around 4-5 months ago, a client took all my work and vanished off the face of the earth without paying my due. It was a significant amount, so it goes without saying, I was devastated.

Your first experiment asked me to just wish anything I want and order the FP to grant my wish within next 48 hours. Now let tell you what happened;

1. I read the first experiment; opened my mind; started imagining a big field around me charged with good vibes and ordered it to get me my due check within next 48 hours.

2. Hardly around 2 minutes later, my cell rang. The message is from my bank; 10,000 bucks have been credited to my account.

3. I went berserk, opened my online bank account to see where the money had come from, and there it is. It came from the same client who not only ran away with my work but also refused to take my calls, answer my emails and texts and avoided me for past 5 months.

I am unable to tell you how powerfully connected to the world I am feeling right now. I am here, I am breathing and I can see things which were not visible to me just hours ago. And I have not even completed the book. It took just one experiment and I fell so hard I am laughing like a maniac right now.

The second comes from Dorothy:

I recently returned to teaching in a traditional classroom in Pennsylvania after teaching ballet, acting, musical theatre, and piano classes at a large performing arts school in Massachusetts for fifteen years. My new position teaching academic subjects to second grade students is joy-filled and fulfilling. But I miss teaching dance.

So on a Wednesday in July this summer, as I was driving to my traditional classroom to check on delivery of supplies for the coming school year, I said out loud, “Oh Universe, I miss ballet. I want more ballet in my life. Thanks for taking care of that.” And I went on my merry way.

On Saturday of that week, I went to see a childen’s show production at a local regional music theatre (The Media Music Theatre Company). It was a very good production, so I waited to congratulate the director on such a fine job. During the conversation with him, I mentioned that I had taught children’s classes in the performing arts. He asked if I taught dance, and when I said yes, he asked me to send my resume and information to him.

That was Saturday afternoon. By Sunday morning I had the job–teaching ballet and tap (eleven classes per week) Monday through Friday afternoons and evenings at the theatre’s recently opened school. Just that quickly, the amazing organizing powers of the Universe delivered the perfect circumstance for my “more ballet in my life” desire to manifest.

Thank you, Aakriti and Dorothy for sharing the love.

And, dear readers, if I don’t write from Japan, I’ll check in as soon as I return.

Your soul is too beautiful to do anything but shine light and love.

“At any moment, you are perfectly free to see the radiant beauty of the real world pervading all things.”—The Way of Mastery

In the interest of dismantling old paradigms, here are two stories I love:

When Pancho Ramos Stierle was getting his PhD in astrophysics at UC Berkeley, he was involved in a hunger strike to protest the university’s involvement in nuclear weapons.

After nine days, university muckety-mucks got tired of fasting students blocking walkways so they sent cops to break it up. Amid the melee, Pancho was brutally handcuffed and slammed into the pavement by a police officer who was much bigger than him.

I don’t know about you, but I’d have probably been a little miffed. At very least, I’d have been righteously indignant.

Pancho made a different choice. He looked the officer in the eye and said, “I know you’re just doing your job and I forgive you. I want you to know that I am not doing this for me. I am not doing this for you. I am doing it for your children and the children of your children.”

The officer was a bit befuddled.

Pancho asked him his name and said, “Brother, let me guess, I bet you like Mexican food.”

After an awkward pause, “Well, yeah.”

“I know this place in San Franciso that has the best carnitas and fajitas and quesadillas,” Pancho says. “How about after I get done with this and you get done with this, let’s get together and have lunch there?”

In other words, Pancho brought Truth into the story. We are all one and when appearances seem to defy this, it is our task to remember—there is no enemy. And we are all way too beautiful to be anything that perpetuates the old story of separation.

The other story I love is about a dancing principal who makes going to school loads of fun.

Orange you glad…this is not a knock-knock joke, but a story about magic

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
—Maya Angelou

As an adventurer on the frontiers of magic and enchantment (my self-appointed job description), I am devoted to poking holes in the veil of illusion. My pin for rending the veil is telling stories about the new paradigm, the paradigm of oneness.

It’s not a huge thing, not a Gandhi-size accomplishment, but I gotta believe that every tiny hole in the old story of separation shines a little more light and accelerates the new.

Today’s story comes from the I Can Do It! conference in Orlando. Hay House events are always magical, but this was one was OTT, to use a little textspeak.

At the Friday tribute to Wayne Dyer, Anita Moorjani told the story of how she first learned of Wayne’s passing.

A friend had come for lunch bearing flowers. She asked Anita, “What’s with the orange?”

The friend went on to explain that she’d gone to buy red roses for Anita’s cool new beachside home, but a voice, seemingly from the other side, kept telling her, “Take the orange flowers.” So she did.

Anita explained that orange was her favorite color, but she couldn’t imagine which of her already dead relative and friends would have given those instructions because well, they’d never done it before.

During lunch, Anita’s phone rings. It was Maya, Wayne’s long-time assistant. Anita knew immediately. Not only did Wayne tease her about her penchant for orange (her wallet, her cell phone cover are all orange), but he, too, had a thing for oranges, the fruit. If you’ve heard him speak in the last few years, you know he always carried one on stage.

But even cooler is that when Anita went to talk during her slot at I Can Do It!, there was an orange sitting on her table. She asked everyone she could think of (the Hay House handler, the technician, her husband Danny), but no one, at least no one in the physical world, had left it there.

Yes, my friends, magic is afoot. And the more we can give up our old stories, the more we can see and enjoy the bigger story where miracles are normal and love is all there is.

Your brain on gratitude: the perks of brazen thanksgiving

“Gratitude is some seriously powerful stuff.”–Emily Wenstrom

I’m heading to Orlando tomorrow to speak at the Hay House I Can Do It! conference. Among other things, there will be a huge celebration of Wayne Dyer’s life. If you want, you can lifestream it. For free. Click here for more info:

I’m preparing for the conference so thought I’d re-run a blog post that’s all about gratitude which, as you know, is the topic of the new book I just turned in. Enjoy!!

A couple years ago, I wrote a travel piece on the Cook Islands, a tiny nation of 15 spits of land, surrounded by millions of miles of ocean.

The 15,000 or so people who live in the Cooks rightfully believe they are blessed, that God has given them everything they could possibly need.

It’s an attitude that can’t help but provide. When someone shows up on this planet with a grateful heart and eyes seeking only things for which to be thankful, that’s exactly what they’ll find. Abundance aplenty.

Cook Islanders don’t need researchers to tell them that their feelings of thankfulness have a direct and beneficial effect on their brains, a finding scientists are reporting from labs all over Western universities.

By naturally focusing on positives, on how lucky and blessed they are living in these beautiful South Pacific islands, they’re rewarded with neurotransmitters like dopamine and other feel-good chemicals that form neural patterns of happiness. Their unending gratitude literally sculpts their brains which in turn increases their enthusiasm and energy and lowers their stress.

Consequently, their neural pathways are markedly different than those of us in the West that are conditioned to shine our spotlights on what we resent or regret or what we think is “wrong with the world.”

Renee Jain, a coach of positive psychology, says most Westerners have a negativity bias where “bad stuff” outweighs the good 3:1. Think of all the good drugs (dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin) we’re missing out on by our bitching.

That’s why my mission in life is to be like the Cook Islanders, to focus only on the supreme beneficence of the universe.

I consciously choose to believe such thoughts as:

Life is freaking awesome.
The universe is bounteous and forever generous.
Something miraculous is bound to happen to me today.

Today, I say thank you for all the blessings that are barreling my way, all the abundance, the joy, the peace of mind that I count on day after day. To my way of thinking, responding to any other reality is simply irresponsible.

So tell me … what are you grateful for?

Why I’m a whole lot richer than Donald Trump

“Molecules obey your thoughts, you know.”–Carlos Santana

I didn’t make Forbes’ list of billionaires this year. Doubtful, I’ll make it next year either. But I do know a secret that makes me deserving of the list.

I know with complete certainty that the world is limitless, abundant and strangely-accommodating. I also know that anything I could ever need or want is as easy to manifest as plugging in the toaster.

This Thursday, for example, I’m flying to Florida to hang out with Anita Moorjani, Bruce Lipton, Nick Ortner, Mike Dooley and lots of other inspiring peeps. Next month, I’m flying to Japan to visit Tokyo and Kyoto and to speak to 2000 young Japanese at the Universal Share Project. I can guarantee we will uplift the planet.

Those billionaires? I doubt they could spare the time.

In fact, the only difference between me and “The Donald” is I choose not to carry my riches around. It’s comforting to know that anything I could ever want to do is available to me, but why flaunt it or drag around a bunch of material baggage?

In fact, I’d like to argue that amassing $7 billion, the dollar amount Trump claims to be worth, is not that different than hoarding old newspapers, leaky buckets and all the other junk collecting in the homes of the dysfunctional folks we watch on the A&E show, “Hoarders.”

No, my role model is Peace Pilgrim who, when she was very young, made an important discovery: “Making money is easy.”

Which is why she could give up her earthly possessions and walk around the world with nothing but the clothes on her back. As she said about her 28-year-old journey, “Life is full. Life is good. I have a feeling of always being surrounded by all of the good things, like love and peace and joy. It’s like a protective surrounding.”

That’s all anyone really needs. To know with sure conviction that “the world is limitless, abundant and strangely accommodating.”

It’s not the “stuff” you want. Jesus could never have brought Lazarus back to life and multiplied all those fishes and loaves if he’d been preoccupied by the desire for a beachside residence.

That said, I do not want to make you feel guilty for wanting a big home in Malibu. There is not one thing wrong with a big home in Malibu. Or anything else you want. Want it. Walk toward it with all your heart and might. Just know that there are higher rungs. And know that most people hoard material things out of fear. And fear, after all, is what we’re attempting to move away from.

I am light and I stand before you to love you: A hopeful story about crime

“We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson

What if you woke up every morning, knowing that you have everything you could ever need, knowing that your one and only assignment for the next 24 hours was to “be the light,” to spread love.

Might just change the world.

You might just be the 100th monkey.

Because we are all part of the big quantum mystery, every little act has cosmic significance.

No, we can’t do much about the big global problems. But maybe, rather than feel hopeless, we can change the particulars in our own life. We can love whatever is alive in front of us.

Here’s a true story I share in my new book.

A visitor to New York was pulled into an alley by a man holding a gun. Because she knew that, in Truth, nothing could hurt her, she reacted quite differently than the thief expected.

“Here,” she said to the young man who was holding a gun to her head. “Have my purse. You’re welcome to it. I know you think you need it. But I love you and God loves you are you are so much better than this.”

The woman who I’ll call Jean because that is not her name had long been a student of Truth. She knew she was love. She knew she was light. She knew she could never be in any real danger. And most importantly, she knew this young man was not “the enemy.” She knew a deep spiritual Truth. “Only hurt people hurt people.” She knew that if she were him, if she’d been in those circumstances, she’d be doing the exact same thing.

This is where connection is made. I’m you. You are me.

The two of them looked each other in the eye. And then he took off like a scared jackrabbit.

A few hours later, she got a call from the police department. The young man had turned himself in. He did three months in jail. As soon as he got out, he tracked her down to thank her, to tell her that her “love” that day, her complete lack of fear changed him at a deep gut level.

He has never gone back to crime.

There is no “other side”

“Death isn’t as serious as you think it is, honey.”—Billy Fingers

In E-Cubed, the follow-up to E-Squared, I talked a lot about Worldview 2.0, the quantum viewpoint of life. That everything’s connected, that all we see and experience is just a temporary modification of the one fundamental energy.

One of the most ridiculous, yet cherished beliefs in Worldview 1.0, the old viewpoint, is the belief in separation particularly when a loved one no longer animates a physical form.

This belief has been in my face the past week with Wayne’s passing and with the unexpected departure of a posse member’s 21-year-old son.

I am forever grateful that I “just happened” to be re-reading The Afterlife of Billy Fingers. “Just happened to be” is one of those code words for Divine Presence, kinda like “out of the blue.”

This book by Annie Kagan is such a great reminder that there really is no “other side” and that, if we choose, we can shift our attention so we’re still able to perceive and hear and communicate with a particular spark of Divine Light that vacated the physical body.

Annie’s brother, Billy, got hit by a car. She was devastated by his death until one day he started speaking to her. At first, she worried she was going crazy, was convinced she was playing some game with herself to assuage the grief. But, one after another, he kept giving her signs.

He passed on helpful messages for her friends. At first, they made no sense. Like why would Billy tell her to say, “drink green tea” to her friend, Tex.

Except that just that morning Tex’s chiropractor told her to give up coffee—it had made her body toxic.

And why would Billy tell her to say “Aint no sunshine without the sun” to the one person who thought she was absolutely nutso.

Except that this person, although he’d never told her, had lost his son years earlier and was definitely experiencing a “lack of sunshine” ever since.

Other times, Billy would send silly signs—like a clone of Mitzi, her childhood pet, a blond fox terrier or he’d say, “You’re going to see a star” and then, after suggesting she fix her hair like Lena Olin, she shows up at the beauty shop only to be seated next to the movie star, Lena Olin.

I love these kinds of stories and knowing, that no matter how it may appear to the naked eye, we are forever cosmically connected and deeply loved.

And that whatever my highest concept of good might be is only the starting point. Suffice it to say, the Divine Presence has a much grander, more unifying vantage point.

In two weeks, I’ll be speaking in Orlando at the Hay House I Can Do It conference.

Wayne, of course, was scheduled to speak Friday night. Instead, Reid Tracy, president of Hay House, will be doing a tribute to the 75 years, the starting point, of our great teacher and friend.

Would love to meet you there. My goal remains to hug every person on the planet.
