“It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.”–Calvin & Hobbes
When it comes to manifesting miracles, there’s really just one hindrance. It’s the same obstacle whether you’re trying to draw in a new Lexus or attract a soul mate.
Instead of using our imaginations, we rely on what we know now, what appearances have revealed in the past.
“What is” is the last place you should go when wanting something new. You have to create a vision, a vision that gets you pumped up and excited. There is no room for “what is” or “what you know now.”
That’s why it’s called a miracle. It’s a rearranging of life as we think it is. A Course in Miracles insists that miracles are normal and that if we’re not enjoying them on a daily basis, something has gone wrong.
What has gone wrong is that we keep believing and putting our attention on what we’ve noticed in the past. The past has no relevance.
What has relevance is having a vision. You must employ your imagination because what you want to draw into your life has been blocked by your strong belief in it not being there.
As you know if you’ve been attending this party for very long, I hear about miracles every day. Readers write me with their “You’re never going to believe this” stories. The other day I got an email from a woman in India who had written me 18 months earlier about her desire to attract a partner. Seems as if her parents had other ideas about her perfect soul mate. I wrote back and said something about trusting the universe had her back and knowing that it always, always wants what’s best. A few days ago, she wrote to say that she’s now happily married. And all she had to do was let go of her story that she was hopelessly single and that her parents would never approve of her choice.
Like the Brothers Grimm, we all have stories and we invest lots of energy in them. But let me say it again, your old stories have no relevance on your future unless you keep repeating them.
To manifest miracles, you have to let go of every story and just trust, deep down, that joy is your birthright, that good things are lined up for you and will flow in the very moment you release your old story. All your good is right there, waiting.
I often hear from musicians who, inspired by my work, write songs about E-Squared or about gratitude. I need to collect them all and put out an album.
Last year, I met an amazing musician named Claudia Carawan. She is the music director at Unity Bon Air in Richmond, Virginia. The day I spoke there, she played this song that, while she didn’t write for me, could easily be my theme song.
So, dear friends, please, do what this song says—get up every day and claim your blessing!

It has become a kind of a habbit that your mails come at the very right moment with the answer I had asked.
I thank the Universe for YOU.
And I thank the universe for YOU!
Your blog always come at the right time when I’m feeling blah and it always pick me up at the moment. Then…. my story is I retire from my good paying job a little too early almost 3 years ago. And now I can’t decide what job to apply to because I feel like I’m not gonna enjoy it. I love practicing yoga and been for 6 years and sometimes I tell myself maybe I should be a yoga teacher. But my mind always gets in the way like: I’m too shy to even get in front of a very few crowds; or I’ll forget what to say;in other words I’m not good enough to be a teacher. And all I want is to have fun and have a lil extra for my rent and for travel. I love to travel❤️
Yes! Travel is a great way to see new things, to experience miracles. Go for it with gusto!

Awesome post!! I claim a blessing!
I also bless my situation knowing that a greater good is being born in my life right now! Blessings to all. <3 Thanks Pam and Thanks Claudia Carawan
Pam, These are the blessings I so need to claim: I want to manifest: Financial stability. I don’t want to live out on the very edge any longer. Freedom from the stress that all of this brings. My husband has Parkinson’s. He is a retired Doc. Why no money? Because of a painful episode in his life that follows us wherever there is a computer and a google search. He talks to people all over the world who have PD. He has had very recently a broadcast quality video made of him called the I had a Dream Project. He so much wants to manifest giving PD folks the courage and strength to do yoga, walk, box, whatever it takes to sweat out this disease. He is six years in and takes no meds. He was filmed by an overhead drone and a camera guy doing yoga on the top of Horsetooth Rock. He has internet presence and a 501c3 for folks to gain knowledge from him. I tell you this because I so badly need to face up to what is tearing me apart. Chris and I are at the end of our financial rope. When I read your gratitudes about things you have experienced I can’t relate to them at all. They are not in my stream of consciousness because I can’t ever hope to do what you do. I need to pay the rent and buy food, etc. google Chris Hageseth 111 MD. You will understand. Is FP big enough to overcome this!? If I never hear from you I will understand. I have no one in my life that would be in a posse with me. I want to manifest more than this. Please feel free to delete me if my words are too much. Laurel Hageseth
I was reading Pams post and throughly enjoyed so as I often di I came to comments. I am studying A Course in Miracles, and feel the need for you to know that I love you and I’m praying for you. I have been broke and in debt…..it can be all consuming. But even while you’re at the end of your rope, close your eyes and at least emotionally give this to God. He will not let you fall between the cracks. If you’re too low for this message….close your eyes…pour it out to God……what have you got to lose. I’m closing my post and praying for you and your husband.
I just read your letter and I also looked your husband up. I’m sorry this happened to you, but maybe this is the beginning of a whole new life for the two of you?! A whole new profession even…..the first thing that occurred to me is “why doesn’t he start giving speeches on PD???!!! Passionate, innovative, and knowledgeable speakers get paid big bucks!!! I know he has “stuff” in his background but I bet there are places that would hire him because his message about PD is so amazing!!! Anyway, I hope this will at the least give you some food for thought, and hope especially!
All my best and lots of blessings for the both of you,
Yes I agree we all have gifts to share and its just how we look at them and what we do with them.
I have been feeling a bit stuck the last couple of years after separating from my husband but then Monday I had a shift of consciously and it looks very different now. I went from what I couldn’t do to what I can do. Saw the last two years as an incubation period. I have learned lots of new skills during this period and realised I can use them.
So I went from what job could I do to realising I have all these skills I am not using. It was just a negative viewpoint to a ‘I can do it’ thought pattern. Then one positive thought leads to the next.
Although my dreams of the furture have changed, I am willing to open up to new opportunities and enjoy the journey.
If the universe always has our back, then how and why are people gassed to death both in nszi germany and in Syria, plus all the other every day things that happen, rape murder, disease, etc.?
I continue to be amazed and delighted with your work and the wonderful impact it is having on my life. Hooray and thank you!
I would love to know how you created your Possibility Posse. The more good vibrations together the more we all get to rise higher:))
Thanks for who you are and what you do!!!
