“We all have the opportunity, the privilege, the responsibility to give our best to life.”—Lynne Twist
A Course in Miracles makes no bones.
If you truly want to partake in the spiritual transformation it promises, you have to first master your mind.
To underestimate the mind’s immense power is a huge mistake. How we think is the determining factor in every aspect of our life.
This ACIM staple was demonstrated last weekend when 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu became the first Canadian to win the US Open. Her win over Serena Williams was a huge surprise to everyone….except her.
Andreescu has been visualizing winning Grand Slams, down to the holding up of the trophy, since she was 14. She even wrote herself a fake winner’s check when she was 15.
“A lot of people work on the physical part of things,” she says, “but the mental part is the most important. It controls your whole body.”
Andreescu gets up every morning and meditates, clearing her mind of all thoughts of the past and the future.
Although she didn’t cop to using my “Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today,” she did admit to taking “15 minutes every morning to visualize myself having a good day.”
As Martina Navratilova noted about her tennis game, “Everyone knows how to bang the ball. Andreescu brings the something extra that makes all the difference.”
“It’s so crazy, man,” Andreescu said after besting Williams 6-3, 7-5 last Saturday. “I’ve been dreaming of this moment for the longest time.
The $3.85 million she pocketed, a sum she manifested to help fly her parents to her many international matches, proves what the Course preaches and what Andreescu has been practicing since she was 14. As they both say, “We create our reality with our mind.”
Speaking of creating reality, I want to thank you all for your interest in my new Course in Miracles book. I’m told by Hay House that the landing page (where you can pre-order and get the gifts I mentioned) should debut in early November.
Now, go out there, my friends, and have the most epic, the most extraordinary weekend of your entire life.

Please tell me again where to pre-order your new Course in Miracles book. I want one! Thanks!
Hi Pam! Great post. I know first hand that visualization does work. Many years ago, I did competition obedience with my dog on weekends. I would always visualize a great performance with a high score and blue ribbon. It paid off. I can tell you that the mental picture of how great we were going to do was as important as the practice. We took home a lot of blue ribbons! The times when I wasn’t in the right state of mind and short changed the visualization, we didn’t fare as well. I’m a true believer and always use visualization for everything I want to manifest. I now tell my granddaughters how important it is to picture having the kind of day they want to have!
Thanks for everything you give!
Thanks for your great motivation! We can all do it!
Wishing everyone an Extraordinarily Epic Weekend! (Another Pam Grout-ism)
Even though I know that there are no idle thoughts for what ever reason I, and I’m sure others too, fall asleep and don’t always live in the moment. Thank you for the reminder.
