“It is all about love and how we all are connected.”— Mark Wahlberg
Ellen Pompeo (you probably know here as Meredith Grey) just became the highest-paid actress on a television drama. As of her recent contract, she walks away with $575,000 for every episode. Not bad for a kid from a blue-collar Boston suburb whose mom died of an overdose when she was just 5.
So what does this have to do with Lesson 18 of A Course in Miracles.
I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my seeing.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Pompeo said she became empowered through watching Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy, become comfortable with her power. As Shonda shook off the shackles of the old paradigm (of not being worthy, of not being paid as well as her male counterparts), Ellen was able to do it, too.
And that’s just the beginning of not being alone in experiencing the effects of our perceptions.
In fact, the majority of our interactions with others occur in the nonphysical realm. All those thoughts you think you’re privately keeping to yourself? They’re not really private. You might as well be bellowing them over an intercom. Subtly, everyone is getting the message anyway.
Whether aware of it or not, you are connected to this giant data base of energy and are constantly exchanging energy, not only with those in your inner circle, but with every other being on the planet.
In E-Squared, I called it the 101 Dalmatians Principle.
The cool thing about being connected to everything and everyone in the universe is that you can use it to brighten the world. When you generate uplifting thoughts about someone, it contributes favorably to his or her energy. Conversely, when you judge others, even if you keep it to yourself, you affect their energy and weigh down the quality of your interactions.
You can literally uplift your world by lasering love, blessings, peace, and other high-frequency emotions to the people in your life. Our differences, as huge as we make them out to be, are superficial and meaningless. And it’s time we let them go.

The 101 Dalmation Principle in E-Squared really brought this idea home to me, Pam. Thank You!
I’m not sure my comment got posted that I sent out in early Jan. I am thrilled you are doing this daily practice of ACIM’s with your fun, easy to understand clarity. Last year my meditation class studied ACIM made Easy by Alan Cohen and we really loved it. Some students were already devotee’s of ACIM and others were new. I am sending them all your post so they can join and follow it daily. We have also done E 2, E cubed, and Thank and Grow Rich as a class. It was so much fun and super powerful! So thank you from the bottom of my heart for your important work of uplifting humanity! Also Eckhart Tolle has a 2 hour talk on ACIM that I love too. Have you seen it? I hope on your next trip to CA you can stop in HMB to meet all these awesome goddesses!!! (my students) With Love and Light, Anna Marie
Pam, Thank you for the reminder, even though I know these things it’s good to get that little nudge that we are all connected. We should always be conscious of how our thoughts and actions have a ripple effect on our lives, others, and the world. We are living proof! Blessings, Eugenia
I was so happy to see you post this as I had already felt this is what is going on. (In fact, the majority of our interactions with others occur in the nonphysical realm -All those thoughts you think you’re privately keeping to yourself? They’re not really private. You might as well be bellowing them over an intercom.) Lost my cell phone yesterday and felt that the Universe was telling me to buy a new phone as I had been putting off getting one for years. Found a 32 gb Apple phone on Best Buy for $159 today. And it is coming rush tomorrow at no extra charge. Another miracle. I love my miracle life and your inspirational words of wisdom arriving in my mailbox each day. Thank you!
Thank you, Pam, for these wonderful posts and, of course, your uplifting and inspiring books. I use your quotes all the time in my own workshops. I especially enjoy your thoughts on energy and do believe that we broadcast messages all the time—messages that we incorporated long ago in our subconscious programming. The key is to use our awareness to slowly peal away all that we are not so that we may finallly express our true being…a being of love. Keep beaming your bright light of realization and let us all envision and create a new world where all life is treasured.
I’ll try again. Lol. <3!!!
I love your posts. This one filled me with guilt and I do not know how to deal with it. I often have negative thoughts about myself and others. It is my Mother’s voice in my head. While I would like to be a beacon of joy, in reality, I often have very mean thoughts and I would like them to stop. What should I do?
Chezron, when you have the mean thoughts, think in your head or say out loud at least 3 times in a row, I love you, I am sorry, Please forgive me, and Thank you. Then count backwards form 100 until you laugh.
Oooh awesome idea, Delaine. Thanks for chiming in.
