Problems seem insurmountable? Hold your horses and read this.

“Drag your thoughts away from your troubles…by the ears, by the heels,
or any other way you can manage it.” ― Mark Twain

The universe is attending to your needs whether you’re aware of it or not. It works on your behalf at all times. You don’t have to earn it or jump through any hoops. It’s yours through grace, not because you prayed hard enough or followed the right commandments.

So no matter what it may look like, everything in your life is working beautifully. I recently heard a story that puts everything into perspective.

Back in the 1900’s, the American public was warned that grave danger lay ahead. An energy shortage was imminent, we were told, because not enough horses were being bred. Horses, after all, were used to plow our fields, deliver our mail, provide transportation. Here’s the plea that went out: “In a few years there will not be enough horses in this country to take care of the commercial needs of the country. Americans, do something!”

So for anybody that buys the “danger, danger” party line, just keep in mind that there is something a whole lot bigger and smarter and more loving that’s running the show, no matter how it may appear to our five senses. We are constantly evolving and being cared for. Our only mission is to let down our resistance, give up our fears and love every glorious moment.

As for that horse shortage? In 2016, the Bureau of Land Management reported having 45,000 unclaimed wild horses.

    Yeeehah! I’m all for trusting the Universe. Thank you, Pam, for reminding us of this in so many (+ delightful!) ways! I’m always smiling when I am reading your blog. 🙂

  2. Henry Ford was busy building cars while economic experts worried that America would run out of horses. God is awesome!

  3. Universe literally is limitless! Why should I panic ?

    The other day I got a termination letter , determination to open another door stood strong. And, things didn’t get deterred. I thanked the Universe and started moving ahead with smiles. Few days later got a better paying job!! I am thankful for all the odds that remind me of the beautiful aspects of life.

    Thank you Pam .

  4. I literally just finished watching a show about horses… checked my email… and voila! Found your post with the story about horses. I love this! Not only was I tickled to find horses, but so grateful to read your words of encouragement. Exactly what I needed at just the right time. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much.

  5. There’s no such thing as “too many wild horses”. 🙂 That line strikes me as the old school, round em up by any means (read: inhumane) and brutally murder them to turn them into whatever.

    Let’s hear some positive vibes about the wild horses please.

  6. Ah, there is something truly magical about wild horses! I just posted on my blog 2 days ago about a miracle I experienced that reminded me that absolutely yes…there is a Higher Power so grand and taking care of us every minute of the day! Thanks for sharing positive vibes Pam! 🙂

  7. Thank you Pam it’s lovely post that soothes my mind when it’s lost in tiny worries ( though I am 100 times more positive and assured after reading your books) again these stories and uplifting words make our day. Please keep sharing your Great wisdom.Highly appreciated 🙏

  8. Thank you! You are the most delightful, awe inspiring, delightful person to grace the blogging world. Thank you for all you do! You are the first thing I read when ever I see an email, a Facebook post or preface to a book that says “Pam Grout” I am going to pay attention. You are my inspiration!

  9. As l hear that l just said, that can’t be l know there are a lot of wild horses that are not discovered

    Thanks for sharing Pam
    The universe has my back

  10. Hi Pam,

    Thank you for this wonderful reminder. I read E-Squared in 2015 and did all of the experiments. For the second experiment I wanted to see a yellow car within 48 hours. I just looked back at the notes I took and I saw a bunch. Anyway, now every time I see a yellow car I sing in my head “yellow car confirmation!” The other day I was with two friends and a yellow car crossed our paths so I sang my song out loud. My frien Jeanne asked me why I sang that tune. I said “as a reminder.” She then asked what I was reminding myself of, to which I responded “that all things are possible.” Even with that, I realize that I was beginning to give in to worry and doubt. Again, thank you. It’s always good to get a reminder and to read all of the wonderful responses to your post.

    Thank you for still being there!

  11. Hi Pam,

    Whenever my life seems to get difficult, I mentally take a bunch of popcorn and lay back as if I was looking at a movie in a theater, and think “nice plot, I wonder how the happy end is going to come out of this !”, because there is no doubt that there is going to be a happy end 🙂 Always works ! I declared myself “someone darned lucky” several years ago, and luck never fails me 🙂

    Thank you for your stories, they always inspire me.

  12. And because of the possible horse shortage came the automobile… Problem solved. The universe is constantly evolving and expanding, it always fills a void. Void=need without which neither is filled!

  13. Thank you Pam for the never ending support until we learn to fall back into the loving arms of the loving Universe!

    Re: wild horses, see Caroline Christie’s photography! Whew.
