Why “what’s possible” is far more important than “what is”

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” ― Gloria Steinem

We have a choice. We can place our attention on “what is” or we can dream of what can be. By placing our attention on new possibilities, we animate a completely different future.

Here are the headlines I’m envisioning for today:

New Ebola cases in Africa fall to zero

U.S. Democrats and Republicans hug it out on the Senate floor

The Middle East celebrate 10 years of peaceful coexistence

Snows return to Kilimanjaro

Pam Grout appears on Super Soul Sunday

Tell me in the comments section below: What’s your new headline?

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.

    • Yes, we are love. I am so excited reading all these amazing headlines. Thanks you guys for playing!!! We can make this real. We really can.

  13. Dear Pam,

    I love your work and the moment I see your name pop up in my inbox, your message is always the first one I click on to read. Today’s post about seeing different headlines really struck a note with me. I live in an area that was seriously threatened by drought conditions, to the point that our community water supply — a large lake — had almost completely dried up. About six weeks ago, I began daily visualizing opening up the newspaper and seeing the headline “Scientists and Forecasters Agree: Heavy Rains Bring End to Historic Drought.”

    When I began that visualization, we’d had no rain to speak of in months. In the weeks since then we’ve had two nice rains and a good soaking drizzle that lasted a couple of days. While the lake is not full by any means, enough water has flowed in to keep us going and I see that as a clear sign from F.P. that my visualized headline is whirling itself into physical reality. But the nicest part is now, when I hear other folks in the community talking, it is about how nice the moisture is instead of how badly moisture is needed. I love it!!!

    And I love you. Keep up the wonderful work you are doing making sure people know that not only can we change our lives with our thoughts, each and every one of us has the power to completely transform the world!

    May your blessings abound…Kate (AKA: Empress of Everything)

    • Dear Empress of Everything,
      It sounds like we live in the same area. I will join you in the visualization for rain!
      I see a very wet winter coming our way! Thank you for the inspiration!

      Donna

      • Thank you, Donna for joining me in visualizing the headline. Where two or more….I’ll take that to mean a downpour is coming! Prepare for rain! Whoo-Hoo!!!!

        Empress of Everything

    • Dear Empress of Everthing,
      I live very near a national forest which experienced a devastating wild fire in the summer of 2012 . My husband and I along with our two dogs had to evacuate our home. We were staying with friends and another friend in another state called to tell me of the power of a song called ” I Dreamed of Rain” by Jan Garrett. One night I played this song over and over and fervently sang along. Tears flowed freely as I kept singing. The next day the local news announced that there had been a small shower that had formed over a portion of the fire and this helped the firefighters get an upper hand. Please look up the music and lyrics to this powerful song. Another verse of the song dreams of peace.
      Blessed Be,
      Carole

      • Oh Carole, thank you so much for that song. It brought tears to my eyes and I cannot get the words out of my mind. I prayed for rain and the rains came and peace spread over the land. What joy-filled words those are!!!

        Kate
        Empress of Everything

      Life is grand and getting better, every day and in every way!

  42. Manchester, ‘Sickest place to live in the UK’ now healthiest after incredible success of Health Realization Program.

    Beginning in 2015 as a 3 month pilot in the four worst affected areas of the city, the impact on personal levels of health and well-being was so significant that the model was adopted by the rest of the city and is now being embraced nationally. Program leader, Viv Barclay, said about the surprising success, ‘It’s not a surprise at all to me. People have an incredible capacity for new thought that can profoundly change their experience of being alive in any moment. In being pointed towards how people create their experience of the world, they return effortlessly to their natural states of mental health and ‘realize’ the impact this has on them physically. People stop blaming factors outside of themselves for their malaise and take personal responsibility for the thoughts they choose to give their energy too. The result speaks for itself. Manchester has gone from reporting 1 in 3 people having a chronic illness to virtually no reports at all.’

    • Holly has a good handle in creating her financial flow for all her needs creatively (through photography, writing and production) and is producing wonderful projects that help others to realize their goals and inspires them to believe too.
