Happy Dancing, all around

“Life is a paradise for those who love many things with a passion.”
― Leo Buscaglia health-benefits-of-clapping-ths

My friend Joyce recently reminded me of a story Leo Buscaglia used to tell about a Sunday school class who was putting on a big performance for their parents. Everyone was given a part.

The youngest girl, who couldn’t yet read or memorize lines, came to Buscaglia in tears: “But what do I get to do?”

“Your job,” he told her, “is perhaps the most important of all. Your job is to clap.”

And that’s what I feel is my job—to clap for all of us who are finally figuring out that there’s a loving force that wants to guide and bless us.

Here are a couple stories for which I’m clapping:

1. Songwriter Neil Gama wrote to me back in September. He said chapter 2 of my book, Thank & Grow Rich, gave him a high-five for a song he wrote called “Blind Vision.” I wrote back and thanked him for the kudos.

Last week, I got another email from Neil. Turns out, the song, that he demo-ed with Berklee College of Music’s Andrea Stolpe, just won the 2016 U.K. Songwriting Contest in the adult contemporary category. The YouTube link is below.

Congratulations, Neil!

2. Here’s a story from Johanna in Finland:

“I started Experiment #2 (from E-Cubed): The red pill corollary yesterday. I was wondering what is the actual meaning of “a belly laugh.” (It’s one of the signs I encourage people to look for).

“Well, I thought I might find out during the next days. Then this morning I went to work to teach a group of kids who are 6 years old. The boys came to show me their bellies and at first I was a bit puzzled. Then I realized they had smiley faces painted on their bellies! They told me that they had painted those smileys with lipstick for yesterday’s Christmas party.

“And they, as well as their parents, had laughed so much during their elf dance. They had had huge elf-hats on and only the painted smiley face on their bellies were showing while they danced. We also laughed with the kids when they told me this! So, I found out the meaning of belly laugh and also a new quite literal definition.”

3. And this one, judging by the spelling, comes from the UK, or maybe Australia.

“I just had to write to tell you I loved the E-squared book and I am now on Ecubed! I had a life changing experience while on experiment 4.

“What you focus on expands.”
“I will draw this item into my life.”

“So I chose a yellow rain coat. It was sort of random but I really love the colour yellow and I need a new coat.

“That day while dropping my kids off at school, a dog in a yellow doggy rain coat walked past me.  I thought it was weird because the dog was in a coat, until I said it out loud to my husband, “Oh funny look at that dog in the … hmm.. the yellow rain coat.”

“Next a parent walked past in a yellow rain coat.

“That evening I made a point to go to my favorite sports store and try on a yellow rain coat.

“I found the exact one I imagined!!!! In the change room, I stared at how gorgeous I looked in it for quite awhile (probably awkwardly too long) and then I sighed, and realised I had zero dollars (I’m currently unemployed and we are a family of 4 trying to survive, the chances of me getting extra money was next to impossible, plus everyone else needed food and clothes and fun)

“I made a conscious choice to change my attitude (thanks to your incredible book) and work on my experiment from E-squared.

“I put the $100 rain coat on hold at the store with the knowing that by my deadline the field of potentiality would provide the means to follow through with my intention.

“I had school (I’m studying to be a yoga teacher) all weekend. There was only a deep satisfied sense in my spirit that was so excited I found my yellow coat. I couldn’t wait to wear it Monday, and I kept having a vision of laying on my bed so, so happy I had my coat!!!

“Sunday night I asked my daughter to go check the mail (super random, the kids needed fresh air and I don’t know why I threw her the keys and told her to go check).

“She came in, there was a card from a relative (totally the LAST relative that would do this) with a cheque for $500.

“I went to the store. I bought my coat.”

Thanks everybody for sharing your stories. I clap, I dance and I celebrate that today is Winter Solstice, meaning the light is beginning to grow.

  4. Light! That’s how I am feeling, seeing, sharing, being since reading Thank. I sat by the ocean on vacation and couldn’t put it down. When I did, I looked at everything with different eyes..,eyes of light and eyes of thankfulness for life. Thank you Pam.

    • That is so awesome to hear, Cat! I am genuinely inspired by your swelling heart. May all our hearts swell at the many different amazing moments in our day.

  7. I too was dancing all around today. Started E cubed and have been dancing to “shake it off” by Taylor Swift. It gets me dancing and moving in ways I never thought I could or would.
    I had the greatest day. I slept well, till 8 am. I have not done that in ages. As soon as I got up I punched in happy songs on google and” Happy” Your fave came on and the great tunes continued for hours. Currently I am unemployed, no kids, no animals, no man, zero responsibilities. I am happy. Within an hour of my day I sold a set of chairs that I had zero response since September and the best part was before 930am I already got my cosmic joke. A dead guy made me lose it in such laughter that I was crying cause I was laughing so hard. For the last 2 weeks I have been asking the question, “what do I want to be when I grow up” I will be 47 in January.
    The answer, HAPPY! Amazing thanks John Lennon. I am laughing hysterically once again and it is exactly 6pm in the evening. I still have days of HAPPY to come. That is the best. A dude that has been dead since December 8, 1980; I looked it up. Gave me the answer. Brilliant. I am blown away. I love you John, and I truly love you Ms. Grout. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, or Thank you cubed. LOL Happy Samantha
    PS I sang really loud Christmas carols in the grocery store today. LOL

    • Love the image of you singing really loud Christmas carols in the grocery store today. And as for cosmic jokes from dead people. They’re perhaps the best of all joke-tellers, because they know….we’re making this all up. And we can make up a different story. Hallelujah!

  8. I want to get a group of people together to meet regularly to support each other in doing the exercises in your books E2 and E3. I also have Thank and grow rich.
    Can you suggest how this be done?
    Thanks
    Janice Sarah

    • I would also like to be in a group like that. I have put it out to the universe. When I saw your comment “Facebook Group” flashed across my mind. I wonder if anyone would be interested in a Facebook support group where we talk about the experiments and share stories of how the universe has blessed us?
      Janice R

      • If I’m not mistaken, there are several Facebook groups out there. I love that people are getting together to share miracles. As I often say, it’s the only conversation worth having.

  9. Bonjour, Merci pour votre livre ! Désolée, je me désinscris, je ne parle pas anglais Bonnes fêtes de fin d’année Cordialement MH JEHAN

  10. I enter the field of potential with arms wide open. Between you and my now starting cd 5 of Wayne Dyer’s intentions series I choose to not look at the circumstances in front of me but the amazing potential I have in my life. Rock on pb girl.

  11. Pam: When I read your posts I often get the chills and Joe Dispenza explains in his recent book, that feeling is actually my mass converting into a higher energy form (but he says it fancier). Thanks for converting my energy on a regular basis! If not for you, I would be a lump of coal by now. xoxo

  12. Oh Pam, One of my favorite quotes is from Mame Dennis, of Auntie Mame fame. “Life is one big banquet and most poor bastards are starving to death”. Time to strap on the bib and dig in.
