Why you should always get your hopes up

“You know what I am? I’m a dust magnet!” –Pig-Pen

A friend of mine raises money for the Citizens Climate Lobby, a non-profit working to address climate change.

I, too, am addressing climate change, but not the big, global kind. The climate change I’m most interested in is the climate within my own energetic field.

Sometimes, I feel like Pig-Pen from the Peanuts cartoon. I don’t typically wear dirty overalls, but an energetic cloud of dirt and dust seems to surround me, blocking the universal flow of good.

Unlike the cloud around Charlie Brown’s friend, mine is largely invisible, but it’s just as effective at keeping love and beneficence at bay. When I feel ornery, when I start noticing all the “problems” in my life, I draw in even more problems.

Like gravity, you can’t really see a person’s energetic cloud, but it works just as effectively. Grumpy thoughts, unhappy attitudes, declarations that “life sucks” keep the world’s goodness locked out of a person’s life experience.

It’s why I attempt to keep my personal climate as pure and positive as possible. It’s why I get up every morning and declare, “Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today.” It’s why I meditate and actively look for blessings.

I love you, Pig-Pen, but, as for me, I’m keeping the only climate I have any control of cloud-free and perpetually joyful.

  1. Hi Pam,
    I have been reading your post for over a year now and really enjoy it! I’ve read your book and have been able to manifest many things into reality. I appreciated your post today because it was ‘real’. It was helpful knowing that even master manifesters are human. 🙂 I would love it if life were always rainbows and butterflies, and it mostly is, 🙂 but this was a reminder we all need clear the dust energetically from time to time.

  2. Thanks Pam! I always read your posts but this one in particular resonated with me. I’ve been watching Cosmos and it’s so fascinating how powerful gravity (which is essentially attraction) is. So your analogy with gravity and the energetic cloud particularly struck me. I can’t WAIT for E3 to come out! Have a fabulous day!

  3. Hi Pam  When I wrote down that something amazingly awesome was going to happen to me today, a few months ago, I found out that my daughter’s fiance had got his dream job in Glasgow and they would be living in the same place for the first time in their 5 year relationship. I wept tears of joy that day! Thank you for your positive emails. Liz 🙂

  4. Wonderful analogy. A friend of mine wrote an article I believe for a Colorado paper with this same bent regarding our carbon footprint. What we’re thinking maybe being the first thing to address.
