Standing on stage with your pants down

“Adventures don’t begin until you get into the forest. That first step is an act of faith.”—Mickey Hart

Launching a new book is like standing on stage with your pants down. You feel kinda vulnerable, wondering if anyone’s gonna like it.

Even after 17 books, I totally relate to Maya Angelou who once said, “Each time I write a book, every time I face that yellow pad, I think, “Uh, oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve run a game on everybody and they’re going to find me out.”

So thank you everybody for “finding me out” and supporting me anyway. All your oh-so awesome emails, your congratulations, your “likes” have really rocked my world.

I cannot tell you how much it means.

And if you’re still not sick of me, stop by Facebook on Monday from 3 to 4 pm EST for a chat on the Hay House website.

Now, get out there and have the best weekend of your life.

To get it started, here’s one of my favorite videos, for those who haven’t seen it in a while. I interviewed Matt years ago for one of my National Geographic books.

I dare anyone to watch it without breaking into a smile.

Pam Grout is the author of 17 books including E-Squared: 9 Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality and the just -released sequel, E-Cubed, 9 More Experiments that Prove Mirth, Magic and Merriment is your Full-time Gig.

  1. Pam, I have been enjoying reading your E-Squared, your blog posts and some other stuff, ever since I read your article last year in Law of Attraction Magazine. I just ordered E-Cubed and cannot wait! It’s been great “getting to know you” and it makes me wish I knew you in person. I am glad so many of us are “finding you out” – because the more of us that read your stuff and practice your methods for living and enjoying, the better this entire world will continue to be!!
    Thanks for putting it all out to the world!

  2. You should have dared anyone to watch it without getting misty-eyed over all those places we haven’t yet been but really must get to, if only in our imaginations, over all the friends we’ve been missing with whom we once danced, over the jumping joy in our hearts for the wonderfulness of our lives so far. Thanks Matt, thanks Pam.

  3. Pam I love everything about everything you write. I’m considering organizing a group for E Cubed…I think it would be a blast. Yesterday, without really trying I noticed a leaf in my yard that looked just like a star….next thing I knew, I was seeing Stars everywhere–besides the night sky. I thought…I just love this stuff…it makes life so damn much fun!

    Off to Like your FB page and read some more of E Cubed with my boyfriend who I manifested in much the same way as anything else.

    Love ya, Rachelle (your former Kansan neighbor–just south of Canton)

    Thank you for being you!! I read E-Squared last year and loved it. I got E-Cubed two days ago and I was reading it at work — my work is so boring and I know I have to leave it, but . . .

    Anyway, I affirmed seeing butterflys, which I didn’t do as a practice last year. I am seeing white butterflys outside my window all day now and even saw a beautiful monarch butterfly fly by. I also have butterflys on my two notebooks that I use for A Course in Miracles and Abraham-Hicks work. So I want to get to the point where I ask for them to be turned off.

    I read the Hay House post about E-Cubed and the penny and giving money away practices. I am finding pennies, especially when I say I need to find one now. Today I found two at the end of my run. I have given some money away, waiting to see what happens.

    The real reason I am writing to you is that I am on the first of the nine practices in E-Cubed and asked for a sign that the Universe/God loves me. I got on U-Tube to find the happy songs you listed and started with “What a Wonderful World.” Below the Louis Armstrong song was Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World. When that came out in 1993, I loved it. I loved hearing it when it was used for a commercial, but I never got the song. I tried ordering it from my public radio station, but never got it. When I played it this morning I got all emotional. This was my sign from the Universe that it really does love me. I have been given something that I have wanted for over twenty years. It makes me so happy!!

    Bless you, Pam! I love you!
