Why aren’t we awesomer?–a guest Ted talk by Michael Neill


“Think left and think right and think low and think high! Oh the things you can think up if only you try!” –Dr. Seuss

In the dining hall at my daughter’s college the other day, a student stood up, clinked his drinking glass with a spoon and said, “Attention please. I have an important announcement.”

With everybody looking, he went on to say, “I just want you to know that I feel really awesome today and I’d feel even more awesome if everybody would stand up and hug the person next to you.”

I love that story and I also love this Ted Talk, called “Why Aren’t We Awesomer?”

It’s by Michael Neill who is one of the many people I get to meet the next two weekends at I Can Do It! events in Rotterdam and London.

Dr. Joe Dispenza, Anita Moorjani, Mike Dooley and Lynn McTaggert will all be there. I mean, these are authors whose books I have read and LOVED and getting to present on the same stage is about as exciting as it gets for a girl from small-town Kansas.

I think ICDI organizers are calling my talk, “How to Make Your Wish Come True in 48 Hours” which is a compelling title, but I’m actually conducting a Reverse Finishing School, meaning I’m planning to reverse all the “things” we learned from our culture, most of which are wrong. I’m hoping to take us back to our childhoods when we knew how awesome we were.

In the meantime, enjoy this awesome Ted talk:

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.

  2. Hi Pam,
    I have had E Squared and half did the experiments. I now have E Cubed. I am one of those very intelligent, understand everything , apply nothing folks you must come across frequently. I have read the quantum physicists, the Lynn McTaggert stuff , etc. I got the idea. I believe it. But I dont seem to believe it for me or I have a thousand other excuses.
    I started ESquare experiment NO.1 last night at midnight, Again
    So I start listening to MIchael and as he starts talking about his depression I start thinking about whether or not I want to continue to live this life of lonely desperation and being in financial distress constantly (realizing I don’t have the will to do anything about it). About 5 seconds after i start these thoughts Michael launches into his suicidal ideation story.
    Now I thought that had a smidget of synchronicity to it, however I haven’t decided to take it as evidence of response to Experiment 1.. So now I have decided to try E2 ing or E3 ing myself out of this current state of affairs.
    If someone else reading this is experiencing the same let me say to them “I believe in this absolutely so don’t think like me”

    • Dear Fred,

      Just remember–all is well. No matter how it might look, no matter what is going on outside of you, inside is a deep well of peace. Might as well dive on in. Blessings, my friend, Pam

  4. I am not a fan of Anita M. and something about her Story just did not feel good to Me. I think that it is not such a Good thing when we have these people that experienced NDE and came back to report, because we simply experience after Death exactly what we think we will and it changes from moment to moment instantly, rather than having to deal with the process of Time as we do here and now while living. It is almost like they are wanting to tell their story to let people know what to expect, only we will not have the same thing happening at all, but possibly something much, much different. My current belief about the Death Process comes from Neale Donald Walsch books and especially Home With God In A Life That Never Ends, which is almost exclusively about Death and the 3 stages of Death and what comes after the Holy Inquiry, which is the 3’rd stage. Peace, Love and Many Blessings, Jeff

  5. I’ve read all the authors on your list and have seen that Ted talk before. I needed to see it again. Funny how we see things differently as time goes on. I get something from everything I read and hear. Keep it coming, I’m getting there. Hugs MH

  6. This is amazing. I try to explain this sort of thing and get blank stares – people squinting to see through chinks in the cave they have made their home. They are afraid to come out. I have 24 magic beans and an egg carton. Now I need a young person to help me with this experiment. They are sooner to believe in the power of thoughts and intentions.
