Too blessed to be stressed
“You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy.”– Buddha
Happy Thanksgiving week, my fine-feathered friends.
To commemorate this holiday that I like to celebrate every day, I’m posting stories that have recently popped into my inbox.
This one came yesterday, reminding us that “Thank you” is always the correct answer. And that we should always listen to our soul.
“Message: PAM GROUT YOU HAVE SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you!!! Always and forever!!!!!!!!
It has taken me so long to find the words to contact you, every other attempt was either completely in caps or just un-understandable!!!
“Oh crikey where to begin!!!!!!!!!
“A few years ago I tried E-squared and E-cubed experiments and they worked a bit but I knew I had major blocks on my frequency.
“I was on a mission to figure out how to release these ginormous blocks to my constant stream of magic and miracles. I found the work of Dr Joe Dispenza – active meditation that when applied fervently and ferociously can clear blocks to absolutely anything.
“As a result of doing the work to become aware of and release it all, I became happier than I had ever been before!
“Those folks who write to you that it doesn’t ‘work’? It’s just because they have blocks bigger than they know on their frequency! I know that for true, because I was one of them! Only I knew it was my thing to sort out, not your fault for telling us how to do it!!
“So I clear the blocks – I was living in a capsule of fear that I didn’t even know about. Major clearage happened and continues to as I meditate every day!!!!
“I get to the point where at the end of August, I really need to find a job and start living the magic I’m feeling deep inside me. But I still felt a bit stuck as to how to do that. I couldn’t turn back to my old life or ways of being, I had come to far on the river of change!
“Then your book Thank And Grow Rich was released and I heard my soul say READ IT.
“I downloaded it onto my kindle app on a Sunday night and started reading. The next morning my soul said ‘Don’t spend all day sending your CV out places. Read the book instead. So on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I sat with notebook and pen and my broken screen phone (!!!!) reading the first part of the book.
“I started daily gratitude lists, and I wrote out the 5 principles (the 5 kinds of capital discussed in the book!!) over and over until I had memorized them and could put them into my own words and tell someone about them without needing the book in front of me! Then I wrote down where I was at with all 5, and wrote down ideas for creative and social.
“On Thursday morning I woke up and I heard my soul say ‘Walk up Webbs road.” It’s a street opposite me with cute shops on it but I don’t go there much.
“I thought, Ok I’ll walk there later. I decided I couldn’t ‘waste’ any more time reading and writing – I needed to get back to the job search.
“By 4pm, I had melted my brain. Staring at the computer with no leads and endlessly searching.
“My partner David calls and asks “Did you go down Webbs road yet?’ So I figure I’m melted, I need fresh air, I’ll walk there then meet my man at the train station.
“The first boutique I walk into is this cute little jewelry shop with interesting handmade jewelry and other gifts. It has good energy.
“I start chatting to the lovely lady and we totally hit it off, she’s Irish too!
“Out of nowhere I say, “I don’t suppose you have a job?
“She says yes! They needed someone for sales and marketing! I think, hey that could be fun, that’s my background – I’m an artist/maker and a ‘lets make this project happen’ consultant.
“The next day the owner calls me; we set up a meeting for Saturday.
“Saturday morning I meet the owner – let’s cut a long story a bit shorter here (!!!!) – her original vision was to have a shop that makes bespoke jewelry with meaning and interior products made by her husband a third generation London metalsmith! I say let’s do that ‘instead!
“By Saturday night I’m drinking CHAMPAGNE – I now have a full time job, AMAZING PAY, I’m the manager of the boutique, I’m designing the new jewelry collection, and I’m the consultant for the new venture, keeping the vision on track!!!!!!!!
“WHAT THE BANANAS!!!!!!!!!!!!
“I spend the next 3 weeks feeling like I am constantly on drugs and EVERY DAY since that week of BRINGING YOUR WORDS ALIVE INTO MY LIFE I have experienced EVEN MORE MAGIC AND MIRACLES – that’s like a whole other set of emails I’d need to write!!!!!
“I wake up each day and think I’m the happiest I’ll ever be and the next day I wake up even happier!!!!!! It just doesn’t stop!!!! Magic everyday!!!!! I’m learning how to be too happy!! There aren’t any books about that yet!!! I feel inspired to write one!!!!
“I wanted to meet like minded people and as you always say – if you can’t find a group – start one! So I did! A meetup in London called Magic and Miracles!!
“It’s SO MAGIC I could burst!!!! We’ve had one session so far, I can feel the energy and power in it growing and growing!!!!!
“We share our daily gratitude list!!
“Pam THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Anyone I share the 5 principles with have immediate results!!!
“One friend – one hour later – huge investment in her business!
“Another friend – a few hours later – offered a £60/hr job!!!!
“My miracles continue – in my relationships, in my own creative projects, in each of the 5 principles!!!! Alchemic, Spiritual, Creative, Adventure and Social!!!!!
“These were the missing pieces for me. I didn’t know how to live a happy life because it really wasn’t one that I was living before. You have helped me see how to do that and let the magic that’s there all day long flow effortlessly to me.
“I link arms with you in my mind while we skip everywhere spreading immense joy!! I join your joy ambassador-ship!! I join you in being a PR woman for the universe and its magic and miracles!!! All day long I serve!!!
“Nature sent and continues to send many signs, birds, herons, robins, they arrive when I need to be reminded of truth! My friend who passed on last year is very present and even more so since I started all of this! She made herself known to me in the most magic way!!! And im being constantly shown that anything I’ve held on to as truth is nothing but pish posh! Blah! That just isn’t real!!!!!!
“I could keep writing but really Pam there’s only one more thing for you to know. I send you a CONTINUOUS stream of Thank you. All day long. Always and forever.
“I hope one day we do meet and skip our way through life!
“I send this out to the universe with all my love”
