What the BANANAS, Part II

“When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change.”–Ursula K. Le Guin


 As I mentioned in my new book, Thank and Grow Rich, I have inadvertently become a PR person for the universe.

The perks, as you can imagine, are many, but the best thing about this job is that my “employer”—if you want to call this universal love energy my “boss”—doesn’t ask that I pimp some useless product or lower my standards or pretend to believe in something I don’t see proof of every single day.

The universe is not trying to sell anything. All it wants to do is give. And give. And give some more.

My job as one of its many “press agents” is to let you know that you are loved unconditionally—always, without exception, no matter what.

I’m in charge, if you will, of publicizing the fact that the universe is trying like bloody hell to interact with you. The universe (or God or the field of infinite potentiality or whatever name you want to call this energy force) wants nothing more than to bless you, to guide you, to help you create the most exciting version of yourself possible.

And here’s the cool part. Not one thing is required of you for this to happen. You don’t have to earn its favor. Or send in a coupon. You just have to release the “reality” you’ve been reading about in the news. You just have to make space in your consciousness for the universe to get in. You have to quit fighting life and let it be.

Not only is the old reality as passé as the bump (it’s a dance, for those of you who missed the disco days), it’s defective and causing you to miss the most freakin’ amazing things.

So that’s why I continue to share these stories.

Here’s a fun one that appeals to a traveling fool like moi. Enjoy!:

“I read E2 last Xmas and decided I would manifest a trip each month for 2016 because I wanted to travel more. Plus I had kids and was a single mom, so the scheduling had to work out! except I had already booked a ticket to Toronto’S “I Can Do It” conference in May.

“Here is my list of travel. 2016 was totally successful! BTW I live way way up in Noerther Ontario, 9 hours north of Toronto. There is a small airport in Timmins that does fly to Toronto.

“January: My friend asked me if I wanted to go for a weekend to Hamilton, ON and she would pay to fly down and all expenses. She had a doctor appointment. We had a blast!

“February: I refinanced my mortgage and the bank said they put an extra 5k in my account in case I wanted to do anything. So….. half went to a spur of the moment trip to Jamaica with my friends and my mom, for the first time ever, was able to drive 9 hours to my house to babysit. PLUS our flight to Timmins from Toronto was delayed until the next day so I ended up with an $800 gift certificate for Air Canada, plus they put us up in hotel, with food vouchers, plus my Amex allowed for $500 in new clothing (cause we didn’t have our luggage) so we went shopping!!

“Plus there was a booth for Amex cards, so I applied for a platinum card and got free tickets to the airport lounge, plus 50,000 points good for 2 round trip tickets in North America!

“March: With the other half of the money from the bank, I brought my kids on a week’s ski trip at a resort north of Toronto for the first time!

“PLUS a new male interest asked me if I would like to attend a conference with him in Toronto, all expenses paid! No strings. There were flowers waiting and the staff at the Royal York hotel (fancy) had their seamstress sew purple pillow cases for the bed cause he knew I loved purple!!!

“April: PR I went to Florida with points to see my good friend’s new house.

“May: I flew to Toronto with points and stayed at some friends of friends place.

“June: I was taken to a fun weekend away in Sudbury, ON

“July: My kids and I were taken to NYC for 8 nights and treated to luxury and excursions.

“August: The same man, who became my b/f took me on a weekend to Toronto.

“September: I asked the Universe for a month off cause I was tired and kids started school lol!

“October: Went on a week to Vancouver, which was on my bucket list. All expenses paid by HIM!

“November: Went to a conference in Toronto, all paid since I am on the Board of a children’s disability center. Stayed at the best hotel. Found out I was a Marriott elite gold member. Got treated like a queen and upgraded. I didn’t stay at Marriotts enough so I don’t know why I have gold status but I do. I’ll take it.

“Also a dinner dance for a weekend in Sudbury.

“December: It’s the big trip. A 10 day cruise to Caribbean and Honduras! Using points and my b/f is paying.

“For 2017, I’m going to manifest funds for a children’s after school Center I want to start in my town.”

  3. Love the spirit that these stories release and give me hope that my”love’ will bump right into me so very very soon

  4. What the banana’s!!! My new favorite catch phrase! Exactly how I feel when the FP knocks my socks off!! Life is grand!!

  5. Pam, I really like using your principals, and the current situation has made it even more apparent to me that we need to use our spiritual principals amd gifts to grow as people and be a force for good. Getting more “things”, getting financially enriched without looking around to see who needs your help is probably not what the universe put us here for. I find it more gratifying to see what I can help manifest for others.

  6. thanks Pam. I love your stories, they always resonate with me. I love your explanations they really get ingraved in my brain in a way other long articles only come and go. My two favorites are the boombox and how geese fly. Those two help me to check time and time again, where is my dial, are all my thoughts align in the same direction. The stories of your life or examples from your readers just tell me that if you or others get it, it’s also there and possible for me. And bit by bit I am getting there one belief at a time and I am navigating all this wordly energetical unrest quite well. By choosing what I listen to, watch and how I choose to express myself I feel better and better. The message you are spreading is helping me do this. I have manifested a new job (it is taking a long time to get finalized but deep down just I am not afraid, things are working out), I have manifested new friendships this year and I get positive feedback in areas of my life and never had without looking for it, it just happens. But mostly I have manifested a feeling of being good enough, the feeling that I am really entitled to be unapologetically me, and the release of ton of beliefs and conditionings that I did not know I still had. So bring on 2017 because thanks to people and messagea like you I am getting to thrive!

  7. Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! and I am already a believer. Wow! I am grateful for reading this post today in the middle of a BIG project that I am handing over to the Universe right now. Thank you for a powerful reminder of targeted living. Wow!

  8. WOW! YES! YES! YES! Thank you!!! I just received at $1000.00 check in the mail! Just
    because someone wanted me to “feel special because I take care of my mom with Alzheimer’s, so go do something for you!’ That was thanks to the JOY I now feel everyday because I am reading and practicing the 5 principles from the best book ever!!!!
    Thank and Grow Rich! You have changed my life!!!! I can’t thank you enough! Thank you for doing your “JOB” ~ “My job as one of its many “press agents” is to let you know that you are loved unconditionally—always, without exception, no matter what.”
    I wish there was a way to attach a picture of the check! I am celebrating and feeling the joy so there may be another one on it’s way! I would have never “believed” this sort of thing could happen if I had not read the book!
    Thank you!!!!!

  9. Good morning Pam and fellow readers,

    In honor of Pam’s new book “Thank and Grow Rich” here is a song I think is appropriate for not only this occasion but every day and possibly more than once a day, sixty thousand times a day seems about right after all that’s how many thoughts we entertain each day and if even a small percentage are negative there will be no room for negativity ever again.


    With Love to all, Enjoy!!!!

    1. I am allowing myself to say “YES” whenever the Universe offers me a new experience.
      My attitude of gratitude has not gone unnoticed by others, and gifts pour into my life in the most wonderful magical way. I am SO grateful for all the joy, and I spread it as far and wide as I can. Namaste’ dear Pam, and all of you in this amazing experiment of Life and Love!

  10. Reading this last story was so inspiring because I have been to this lady’s city for my friend’s wedding. How wonderful her travelling also attracted a new romantic interest to her life. Isn’t that magical? Keep doing what you love and more live is drawn to your life! Thanks for the great inspiration, Pam! For all your enthusiasm and encouraging words, you’re already the engine of the FP! 😃✨✨

  11. Wow! That is a totally incredible year! I’m now on Think and Grow Rich even though I have enough! I’ve moved to Cuenca, Ecuador but would like to meet a man to share the next 10-15 years with. He must be here because I’m here! Working on the manifesting and I’ve been doing it for 5 years! Hope the universal timing kicks in soon!!
    Keep up the good work and my best to you for the right man. It’s so fun to have a great partner to share life with! Makes it twice as rich in my book! 🙂
    Love & Blessings,

    1. So enjoy your replays of life. We’re all on awesome trips this lifetime. Keep your stories coming. The universe is there for each of us. Love and peace.
