“I never understand when people make a fuss over me as a writer. I’m just the garden hose that the water sprays through.” –Joyce Carol Oates
I’d like to interrupt this blog with a non-commercial announcement.
Yee-haw! (Yes, we say things like that in Kansas)
As many of you know, my new book just came out—8 days ago as of today—and already, it has gone into a second printing. That’s what I call awesome!
So thank you. But mostly, thank you for sending me all your amazing emails and manifestation stories. Today, for example, someone told me that Katharine Hepburn used to get up every day and say, “Lucky, lucky, lucky.” Who knew?
One of the many reasons I feel like the luckiest person on the planet is because every morning I get up to find real-time stories that confirm what I know to be true: that the universe loves us unconditionally and sends us exactly what we order through our beliefs and expectations. If we believe in blessings and miracles, that’s exactly what we get.
Here’s a fun story that came in early this week from a fabulous Emmy-nominated stunt driver and happiness blogger named Sarah-May Bates.
Take it away, Sarah-May:
“I just began my Boogie Woogie Corollary experiment and also redid a few of the E-squared ones along the way, and among other things I manifested two second row tickets to Evil Dead, the Musical.
Tickets are worth $160, but more that, it’s usually sold out. My fiancee Adam and I walked over to the Long Theater in Austin (I’m here on business) because we knew the show was in town and we wanted to buy tickets to the 10 pm show. Literally as I walked up to the ticket kiosk at around 4:45 and a man immediately walked up to us and said, “Do you guys want tickets? Here’s two – they’re in the second row.”
We stared at him in shock. We didn’t have any time to respond before he said, “I’m GIVING them to you. My friends chickened out. They’re in the splash zone! Enjoy!” And walked away. We thanked him profusely and immediately belted out, “Thanks universe!!” even snapping this photo so I could send it to you. (BTW, the splash-zone is where you get sprayed with fake blood and needless to say, I am a HUGE horror movie fan and Evil Dead 2 is in my top 5.)
The play was AWESOME and hilarious and I will treasure the experience for the rest of my life. We both toasted to you over a cocktail that night and I want to thank you for your writing and gifting of this amazing connection to the FP you have passed along to me. I keep getting gift after gift and blessing after blessing and I try to share this knowledge with anyone I who will listen!
Check out Sarah-May’s blog, “>Teaspoon of Happy, here:

Hi Pam, read & loved E squared but I think I must be doing things wrong 🙁
There is no link to the teaspoon of happiness blog…?
I’ve tried to put it in, but if you simply google Teaspoon of Happiness, you’ll find it. Hope that helps!!
The page does have value….it’s now a bookmark. 🙂

Dear Pam, I love your books. I´m with the second half way through. Very often I already experienced myself some of these wonderful things happening if I´m in alignement. But please tell me, what would you do, if you hear about a terrible accident in your neighborhood bringing a whole beautiful family down to their knees. I don´t want to challenge you, don´t get me wrong. Are you living in a zone where such things do not reach you anymore? Again: I do not want to be sarcastic. Sometimes I think crying about bad news is not allowed anymore because if I would be able to navigate the quantum field such things wouldn´t happen in front of me. I´m very confused. Martina
I appreciate the question and totally “get” where you’re coming from. I also know it’s perfectly okay to cry about anything. I also know that at every moment, I get the chance to decide how I will perceive what is happening. That something is “bad” is a judgment call that I’m not qualified to make. Time and again, something we have deemed “bad” ends up being the best thing that ever happened. My job, as I see it, is to cease critiquing (this is good, this is bad, etc) and begin creating. Hope this of some help.
i got your book yesterday, very excited to read it. how did the couple manifest the tickets?
I started E Square two days ago! Love your book so far! Hope to share my experience soon!
I’m getting ready to count Hunter green cars! I’ve got a handful of blessings in my pocket from experiment #1. Lucky, lucky, lucky!
