“Over-explanation separates us from astonishment.”–Eugene Ionesco
If you didn’t catch this LOA quiz I wrote for the Good Vibe blog, here’s your big chance. I’ll be talking with Jeannette Maw, host of this groovy online party, at 4 EST this afternoon. Come say “hi!”
And now for the very first LOA quiz, run for the very second time:
When I was a teenager, I loved the quizzes in Seventeen magazine. I couldn’t wait to find out:
“Which fashion style best suits your taste?”
“What is your party personality?”
“Is he THE ONE?”
Even now, a day rarely goes by without one of my Facebook friends reporting the results of “Which member of the Beatles they are” or “Which Oprah quote should be their mantra.”
These quizzes are all in good fun and since good, delightful fun is one of my mantras (I didn’t even need Oprah to help figure that out), I’ve come up with the world’s first Law of Attractions Quiz.
To find out how adept you are at using this all-powerful law of the universe, answer these four questions:
1. Do you believe your thoughts create your reality?
a. Some of the time
b. All of the time
c. Only when you repeat an affirmation 568 times, visualize at least an hour a day and pray non-stop to a higher diety
d. Are you kidding me? I never get what I want.
2. Which of the following statements best matches your opening thought most mornings:
a. Oh shit, not again!
b. Yee-haw! A new opportunity for another Oscar-worthy production
c. Dang! Where is that hot brunette I was just dreaming about.
d. I’ve got to pee.
3. Which of the following most accurately describes your take on life:
a. It sucks and then you die.
b. It’s a test for what’s going to happen after you die.
c. It’s like an amusement park ride, sometimes exciting and sometimes it makes you want to die.
d. It’s a beautiful romp and death? It’s just a temporary illusory bump.
4. The universe is:
c. Strangely accommodating
d. All of the above.
Check your score here:
1. If most of your answers were “A”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
2. If most of your answers were “B”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
3. If most of your answers were “C”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
4. If most of your answers were “D”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
5. If you didn’t even take the quiz: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
Okay, so it was a trick quiz. And I could have just told you going in: You can’t NOT use the law of attraction. To question whether or not you do is like questioning whether or not you use gravity.
So here are three questions I actually like better:
1. Given the fact that your thoughts, beliefs and expectations play the starring role in your life experience, did you get up this morning and consciously create your day?
2. Did you get up this morning and purposely decide what kind of day you were going to have?
3. If not, what’s stopping you?

i was very scared and negative. Now i ask myself ” what is the best thing that could happen” and work from there. Any Chicago people want to start a group ??
Pam…love this “in your face” reminder of how incredibly simple, and joyful, life can be. Just what I needed to be hit up side the head with this Moday morning.
Hope it was more like a gentle nudge on your gorgeous face.
I did get up this morning knowing what my day was going to be like, thinking about at least some of the photos I would take at the loction we were going to, and believing it was going to be a good day. But then I read your a chapter of your Live Big Book last night so I was prepared.
I am not quite up to making a fool of myself just yet, but I am working on it……
I hope you had a good day.
It’s not necessary to make a fool of yourself. It’s just necessary not to mind what other people think.
Oh, man! That created a belly laugh. Thanks for the blog posts. Now I have to go pee. Thanks for that too. 🙂
Thank you Pam. I love this quiz. I passed😊Ha-Ha Robin

So glad you passed, Robin.
Thank you, Pam!!!! Thank you for the quiz, for the posts, for the books!!! Today, you reminded me (again!!!) of WHAT is stopping me!!! Regards from Athens, Greece!!!
Nothing is stopping you. We are always infinite and free.
Hi Pam. My first thought for the day used to be “I’d better get up & face the day”. Then as I became more aware I began saying “I’m going to get up & embrace the day”. Then my very wise friend Tania said “why don’t you say, I’m going to get up & create my day”. It’s now my new mantra & just that one sentence is changing how my day pans out. I love it!! Peta
Love those bridges we cross to realization. Every step is so much fun.
Reblogged this on We are all Powerful Within..
Thanks Pam for the reminder that each day is a gift and when I wake up I look forward to whatever the universe brings to me and it is with an open mind and joyful heart that I embrace the journey.
Goddd….1 thing in my life I wna. Do iz 2 meet u…m thinkin…how powerful n strong soul you r…I sure wna think like you Thnkyusomch
I love this reminder that I’m attracting whether I’m positive or negative. My selfie drawing (already posted to your facebook site) is great at focusing my attracting. I read it every morning and throughout the day…and it’s starting to come true!
Becoming more and more aware of the correct answer to the quiz. Thanks for the constant reminders!
No one has told me what to do when the experiments didn’t work for me in E-squared. It was assumed that they did…
Here’s a post I like to share when people feel they didn’t get results to their experiments:
Once again Pam – I just love you.
Ever Since I read E Squared, I started practicing and setting intentions to get green signals when I travel. Over the years in my town the signals have increased and each one is a wait of more than 120 secs. I dislike waiting at a signal especially on a hot afternoon. I have noticed that when I travel these days, some magic happens and the signals turn just green most of the time. The ration can be 8/10.
Setting intentions in all spheres of life is actually natural to us. We must believe that we can all the time.
Thank u Pam.
I love the Law of Attraction. The possibilities are endless to create our own future. Check this out too: http://manifestyourfuture.weebly.com
