The force is with you: becoming a Jedi

“The force is an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.” Obi-Wan Kenobi

As many of you know, I’m in the studio this week recording my new book. But in the meantime, here are three beautiful stories from my inbox:

From Jady, the Jedi:

“YOU HAVE TAUGHT ME TO BE A JEDI.

“Your books/words have unlocked my “I create my own life” and “I influence everything within it” subject-power-lines.

“I went blind 4 years ago. I began reading E Squared and wanted to be a real-life Jedi.

“And right away, my life began unfolding with the most amazing blessings and incredible experiences. Surgeries saved my vision (mostly :-). I was bodaciously grateful and everyone thought I was crazy the whole time I was blind – Seemingly insanely joyful, truly.

“And whence my vision was returned (still wonky but makes it great still), I picked up a camera, jumped over any irrelevant fears and with my first roll, I shot what eventually got me into a show in NY. Then applied to the Soho Photo Gallery and became a member (I live in Portland, OR) and have had two solo shows in the last year!

“Since September I have been published in international publications and magazines, all small, but it’s all building amazingly and going strong (like gangbusters).

“I have never been so blissfully happy or strong even thought “my marker has been laid” and I have end-stage renal disease. I approach it with joy and engage mightily in the recommendations in your books. And…well…YOU HAVE HELPED ME UNLOCK MY POTENTIAL AND REALIZE THE TRUTH OF ABUNDANCE AND CRAZY LOVELY EVERYTHING. Life couldn’t be better – Well, it can – its still unfolding. Thank you for you. Thank you for your books! Keep writing and being so fantastically amazing yourself!!!

From Fred:

“I wanted to tell you a valuable lesson I learned about letting go of control and trusting the Universe and God to take the wheel, as you say.

“I was lying in bed with my boyfriend as we were getting ready to leave to walk around the park.

“I had been reading about the horrors of the modern day Concentration Camps in Chechnya designed to exterminate gay men. I posted a link to Rainbow Railroad, a Canadian organization that is helping LGBT people from all over the world seek asylum in Canada and is currently focusing their efforts on helping gay men who escaped those camps.

“Facebook suggested I start a fundraiser, a new feature for them, so I did. I expected to maybe raise a few hundred dollars, but Dan, my man, said set the goal to $10k. “What do you have to lose?” Well, little by little we gained traction aand eventually speed. I decided to let go, not even check the amount raised every 5 minutes and instructed my handsome man to do the same.

“We began getting celebrity attention, like Wilson Cruz and Peter Marc Jacobson (Fran Drescher’s ex and The Nanny producer). Eventually I had to look and we had quickly exceeded the original goal of $10,000. I moved the goal to $15,000, $25,000, $50,000, $100,000, and we are currently the most popular FB fundraiser and on track to meet the goal of $200,000! Stonewall in NYC is throwing a fundraiser on Saturday and I’m attending with a member of the Board of Rainbow Railroad and his husband! (Both a hot couple!)

“George Takei shared our post and NBC did a story!

“I trusted and let go and the Universe came back with a miracle!”

From Stephanie:

“You’re never gonna believe this, but . . . Sorry, I couldn’t resist 🙂

“My dad died a little over a year ago, right before Memorial Day. We buried him on a Wednesday, and that next weekend my oldest son, an army veteran, was to speak at a Memorial Day ceremony at a small nearby cemetery. As he spoke, a butterfly kept fluttering around him, landing on him, aggravating him as he tried to make his speech. Afterwards, a little old lady came up to him and asked, “Son, has anyone close to you died recently?”

“We just buried my grandfather this past week,” he said, surprised.

“That butterfly is him!” she claimed. He played nice and didn’t call her crazy. Later he told my husband and me about it. My husband laughed, but I was intrigued.

“Later that week my husband (who had spent years working for and with my Dad) was working on a broken pump when, yes, a butterfly started flying around him and wouldn’t leave him alone. Later, telling me about it, he laughed, “That’s about right, Jimmie showing up when I was trying fix something. It seemed like we were always working on some broken down piece of equipment when I worked for him.”

“Well, I got angry. It was my dad! So why was everybody else seeing butterflies but me? I didn’t say it, but I sure thought it.

“Well . . . a few days later, I was out watering plants when, you guessed it, a butterfly started flying around me. It was a beautiful black and blue one, and it stayed with me as I moved around the yard, and finally onto the porch. It’s not like I never see butterflies where we live, but NEVER had one caught my attention and stayed around me that long, fluttering beside me, being with me. I stayed outside longer than usual because I just couldn’t leave the butterfly, but finally I went inside.

“As I did my morning chores, I could look through the windowed front door and see the butterfly flittering around in front of the window. It stayed out there for hours. Sometimes I’d just sit and watch it, then get up and get back to work.

“I had errands to run in town, so finally I just left. I couldn’t hang around watching that butterfly all day. I picked up groceries, went to the bank, and in the course of all my doings I forgot about the butterfly. Until I got home, turned into our long driveway, and saw the butterfly right outside my window, flying beside me all the way to the house. I got out of the car, sat on the back steps, and watched the butterfly for perhaps an hour before it finally flew away. I was simply amazed. I’d felt such peace that day being with the butterfly.

“Fast forward one year. This year, the anniversary of my father’s death was on a Sunday. Of course, I’d been thinking about him that week and especially that morning. During church, a small child in front of me was playing with a sticker book, peeling the stickers off and placing them carefully on another page. As I watched, she turned the page, peeled off a sticker, and held it up–a blue and black butterfly.

“I smiled.”

And I’m smiling just thinking about the force interacting and loving all of us. Let’s create some miracles today!

  3. Re: Stephanie’s entry above…. YES, butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, birds— it seems all flying things become Messengers of our departed loved ones after they transition…. this happened when my husband died, and also both of our cats….. it’s called “ADC” (after death communication), similar to NDE’s (near death experiences)…. The great thing is there are more and more reports of these things happening now more than ever!!!

  4. It is my hope and dream to one day have a miraculous thing happen to me that you put on your blog. I can feel the energy gathering!

  5. Aloha Pam,
    Thank you for delivering yet another nugget of golden inspiration my way. You are such a gift to all you touch!

  6. Aloha Pam,
    Thank you for sharing yet another inspirational post chock full of golden miracles!
    You truly are the jewel in the heart of the lotus and a gargantuan blessing to every one you touch!
    With warmest aloha,
    Richard Marks,MA

  7. You are the sprinkles on my ice cream sundae. Thank you for sharing. I needed to read those stories today.

  8. I’ve read Thank and Grow Rich twice. I’m reading ESquared and doing the experiments. There are moments that my current situation saddens me. I’m working at letting go and letting the Uni work!

  9. For any spiritual practice to be successful, one has to be more-or-less free of trauma. One cannot consistently manifest or do anything else with constant grace with unresolved trauma.

  10. Hi Pam,

    I’m dying to become a Jedi. I’ve done all the steps in your awesome book, E-Squared, and the universe hasn’t responded yet! I have not given up to the requests I’ve made to the universe and even wrote them down and put them in a small box (per Abraham Hick’s advice). I have put many white candles on that box (per Miracles book by Stuart Wilde). I have raised my hands to the universe and asked him for even a small manifestation to know I’m doing the right thing. I have not seen anything manifest. I’m scared of giving up on believing in Universal Force and sinking back into depression….AGAIN……

    • Dear sweet Jedi James,

      Sounds to me like it’s time to just let go. Once we cease trying so hard (and thereby perpetuating a field of life doesn’t work for me) the universe can slip in under the door.

      Best of luck, my beautiful friend. I see it happening!

  11. Finished the Alby Einstein experiment…and whoa…talk about the Force in action! Amazing….amazing. Honestly, if being just thinking about the slightest negative emotion causes that much movement so quickly then I can see why my number 1 goal should always be to find the positive in everything…no matter what.

    But I wanted to share about my green car experiment experience. I had no doubt I’d see the green cars it was just a matter of how many (I know this is the attitude I need to take with other principles like the Abracadabra experiment which I’m currently on). But what struck me was not that I saw as many green cars as I did but how many cars I BELIEVED to be green and turned out to be another color. I was seeing a color that others, including myself, would classify as not being there.

    And I began to think that this must be true for other things I focus upon. If I focus on love then I will find it but I will also perhaps see it in places others might not. Focusing on gratitude I would begin to see things to be grateful that I or other might not generally be grateful for. By focusing on joy I would begin to see joy where I normally wouldn’t…especially around people I perceive as crabby 🙂

    The reverse is true as well. If I see through the lens of hate, lack or any negative emotion then I would be sure see those emotions where they don’t exist.

    It was a powerful experiment and I think I learned slightly more than I intended to.

    Thank you

  12. Hi Pam, my name is Jose, and the last days ocurred fantastic things….its the energy.
    Regards

  13. Hi Pam, just started reading “Thank and Grow Rich” I absolutely love it! The last three morning I’ve started my day thinking “something amazing is going to happen today” and I haven’t been disappointed! I’ll share one story from yesterday…

    My daughter Robin and I watched “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” Friday night, (we’ve been switching from sedentary, unhealthy lifestyles for sometime now, Robin for about 3 years which motivated me about a year ago), anyway we wanted to try out the ‘reboot’ he suggests in the film but didn’t have a juicer or have anyone to borrow one from. The next morning we decided to go garage saling and as we were entering a community holding one I said “oh maybe we’ll find a juicer!”. We turned the corner and lo and behold there was an older gentleman with about 4 items for sale, one of them being a juicer! We could hardly believe our eyes! We went over to talk to him and check it out, it was a brand new Jack LaLanne power juicer, which of course came home with us!! Side note, we bought the ingredients for the reboot juice and it tastes pretty good

    I’m so glad I picked up your book, I was doing well when I read E squared but fell off the wagon. The simplicity of being thankful is a wonderful way to live life and I am grateful to you for sharing it with the world and am happy to feel motivated again!
