Gratitude is the gateway drug to abundance

Happy Friday!!

I just returned from the jungles of Barahona in the Dominican Republic where, among other things, I ziplined through the jungle canopy. I leave again Sunday for California so I’m so grateful for all my online friends who can fill in for me. This guest post is from Cloris Kylie, an author, speaker and radio host. Enjoy!!!

Good Things Come in Threes


As part of a large extended family, I can say the death of a relative is not foreign to me. From a very young age, besides noticing the shock and emotions that usually arose when someone died, I was always amused by a statement that many of my relatives proclaimed: “I wonder who’s next. You know what they say…bad things come in threes.”

Some of my older relatives would even affirm that when someone passes, he or she comes back from the other realm to snatch a couple of extra lives. The reason? That’s what “they say.”

Like many of us, I was being programmed to believe in this triple-tragedy bundle.

However, something inside of me made me reject this program from the first time someone tried to load it into my subconscious mind.

I asked, “Who is ‘they’? Where are the statistics that prove this theory?”

The answer I received was a recollection of past situations in which three people had died or three tragedies had happened within a short period of time.

In one occasion, there had been two deaths, but nobody in the family seem to be ready to die after that. That’s when someone discovered that Mrs. Kent, an elderly neighbor a couple of streets down, had passed. The Law of Threes had been proven once again, and its effects appeared to extend to any of our Facebook friends and their Facebook friends.

With an average of 150,000 people leaving our world each day, I can see how the Law of Threes has perpetuated for years.

However, if we’ve proven this “law” is true by expecting it to be true, can we prove the law is flawed by expecting it to be flawed?

Furthermore, can we create a new law that says good things come in threes?

The resounding answer is yes.

It all comes down to what we place our attention on.

It all depends on our expectations.

One of the life-changing messages in Pam Grout’s E-Squared is that “what shows up in our lives is a direct reflection of our inner thoughts and emotions.”

If we make a conscious choice to expect not only the manifestation of our desires, but the appearance of miracles in our life, we’ll experience our wishes fulfilled and a miraculous existence.

So now, every time something good happens, I expect two more great things to come. I look for the fortune in every circumstance, even when the circumstance in question seems to be unlucky. A few months ago, I learned that the manuscript I entered in a contest hadn’t been selected for a publishing contract. I chose to see this as the opportunity to get my book out on the market sooner through self-publishing. The new release date was perfectly aligned with timely endorsements from amazing authors such as Pam. Managing the publishing process has been one of the best learning experiences in my life.

When I’m “lucky,” my senses are tuned in to the people or events that will become lucky #2 and #3, and I have a feeling that if I focus on finding lucky #4 and #5, I’ll succeed. As quoted in E-Squared, “Miracles are like pimples, because once you start looking for them you find more than you ever dreamed you’d see.”

Did something awesome just happen in your life? Grab on to your seat, because two equally awesome things are coming! Has nothing great happened lately? Even better, because once that first wonderful event happens, two more will follow!

  1. Thank you! Just what needed to hear today.

    I got “released” yesterday from a great job opportunity. But after reading your wonderful post I do believe it was a lucky blessing. I’m looking forward to seeing #2 and #3!

    Happy Friday indeed!

  2. Eleven years ago, Archangel Michael helped me with 3 miracles in a week. Our foster daughter, who the US Government was trying to deport, got the attention of our congresswoman, who was visiting her high school and was on the front page of our newspaper the next day. This led to pro-bono attorneys who helped her get U. S. citizenship a few years later.

    2nd miracle the next day was that hospice agreed to come give me a medication at my house for free that the charge at the hospital was $8,500. I was scheduled to get these every other month. (A year later, I received a spiritual healing and have not been to a western medical doctor in 10 years.)

    3rd miracle was that the tax auditor dropped the tax audit. I asked for an extension of time and was never contacted me again.

  3. Oh Goodness Pam, I enjoyed your book E Squared so much, I couldn’t put it down until I had finished reading it. Then you threw this in close to the end to get us all excited again! You wrote “ I have just handed in my manuscript for E Cubed” Come on baby…… you know what women want, they want it NOW, TODAY, YESTARDAY !!! Fancy telling us you have a new Book after this one, I bet you knew we’d all want it NOW, TODAY YESTERDAY LOL !!!! Please tell the publisher to hurry up “Faster, Faster” and publish it, or at least let us buy a digital copy Right now. Today. Immediately !

    Seriously, I can’t wait to get both digital and hard copy, then I can read it anywhere including the bath tub and pool.

    Well done, Loved it, and I hope you are now starting to write, E Sliced and E Diced! I expect two more books from you by the end of the Year ok. Timed perfectly so I can read one straight after the other.

    Blessings to you Gorgeous Woman. I know all your dreams will come true, and you will become a Multi-millionaire very soon. I have already decided you will, therefore you will.

    Love and thanks for a great read…….. and many more to come.
