“Love is more powerful than death, bigger than the dark, bigger than cancer, bigger even than airport security lines.”—Anne Lamott
On November 6, it was officially announced that the seventh Star Wars movie would be called “The Force Awakens.”
I yawned and said, “Well, duh!”
The Force (Or what I call the Field of Infinite Potentiality) is alive and kicking and always has been. Like someone tweeted this morning, “Once you buy into what @PamGrout is talking about, #Weird Shit starts to happen.”
The only reason we think it’s new or “weird shit” or just now awakening is because we’ve bought into the other story. The story that says, “This is all we get.” We’ve been pretending that we’re all alone and that we have no power and that there’s not a Force that is chomping at the bit to get involved in our lives, to connect with us, to provide us with guidance.
I get emails every day that start with something like, “You’re never going to believe this.”
Here’s one that came in yesterday. “I lost one of a pair of favorite earrings bought in Santa Monica, CA (I live in London so couldn’t just pop into the shop and buy another): gold hoops with black diamonds. I put out an intention to get the earring back and this morning on my dressing table were the two earrings! Isn’t that crazy and inexplicable!
It’s not crazy and inexplicable once you let go of the old story. The old story convinces us that there is “one reality.” That “this one reality” is solid, never changing. But it only sticks around as long as you continue to invest in it.
In the quantum playground, all things are possible. So instead of investing in “what is,” it’s time to put all our energy into “what might be possible.”
As 22-year-old John Boyega, one of the new stormtroopers in Stars Wars VII, said to critics who questioned the casting, “To whom is may concern….Get used to it.”’

Pam I really enjoy reading other peoples stories.They keep me motivated and believing when my faith wavers.Sometimes they even save me from emotional break downs.I would love if you could post these stories more often or how about even a book on all the great successes people have.Just a thought 😀
That is a wonderful, exciting idea Kimberly! I know I’d be really interested in reading more of these stories.
There’s a whole chapter in E-Cubed with stories from E-Squared. It’s called Well, Duh?
I will have to re read it again and again LOL I need to continuously read these success stories because I am trying to overcome past and current emotional abuse and it’s a work in progress.The mind wants to revert back to previous negative thinking.
CALL ME PAM…
I agree with Kimbery, reading people’s stories is the best! I have a few of my own and yes, they start with “you won’t believe this”! lol
So happy for you Alysha.I could be having a bad day and read an uplifting story and just turns my thinking around.Now I have to go re read that chapter Pam mentioned LOL Best Wishes to you .

Thank you for another awesome post. The more we focus on experiencing miracles, the more miracles will come our way!
What can I say? I just love you.
I have a similar story about a ring I lost many years ago. It was a beautiful sapphire ring that my father had given my for my 25th birthday, and it was (and still is) my favourite piece of jewellery.
I had accompanied my father up to the family cottage for the day to help him with some repairs. Somehow, while working, my ring came off and fell to the ground — ground covered with decades of fallen leaves, pine needles, twigs and seedlings. We looked for ages to find my ring, but it had disappeared into the undergrowth. I was so sad, but I resigned myself to the fact that my ring was gone and there was nothing I could do about it.
About two months later, I was up at the cottage again, and happened to look down at the ground, and there it was. My beautiful ring, which had been lost in the woods for two months, was just sitting there in plain view! I couldn’t believe it!
