“If you have the right music very loud on the radio, you get about 50 more miles from your tank.”—Hunter S. Thompson
It’s gratitude month, my friends. And as I do every morning with my possibility posse, I simply must share three amazingly awesome things that recently transpired.
Numero uno. Dr. Christiane Northrup who may just be the most generous person in the world recently made an Instagram video about my new book. My editor asked her to possibly provide an endorsement (after all, she’s a well-known and very famous expert) and wow! Not only did she provide kudos, but she made this fun little video, completely unprompted. She even said this was the first time she’d ever been able to embrace A Course in Miracles and she wanted my book (when it comes out in January) on her nightstand. As I said, WOW!
Second really cool thing is that Karen Drucker, the uber famous touring musician, speaker and retreat leader (and winner of the Tarzan calling competition when she was 13) has offered to throw a benefit concert for the 222 Foundation.
The Unity Temple on the Plaza has agreed to host this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity on May 3 in Kansas City. Karen, who will be playing and singing songs from her 15 albums, will present along with Greg Tamblyn, me, Emmy-nominated Stowe-Good and other like-minded friends. And, just so you know, we’ll be presenting the song Karen and I wrote called, “Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today.”
We are hereby affirming that this consciousness-bending show will alter the world forevah!!! The 222 Foundation is all about moving the needle and this benefit concert is guaranteed to rev up the engine. Make plans now to be there.
Third reason I can barely sit here in my chair is that an auction has just begun for the 52 paintings that were created by the German artist, Sigrid Drobner, for the 222 Foundation.
After Taz passed last October, this artist who I had never met promised to paint a special flower (and make a 3-D butterfly) every week of the year in Taz’s honor.
People sometimes say they’re going to do things, but this amazing artist actually followed through. She sent me one of these gorgeous paintings every single Saturday for 52 weeks. I can’t even begin to express how much her generosity has meant to me, how often it picked me up when I was wondering what in the heck I’m still doing on this planet.
And now she is auctioning them off with ALL PROCEEDS going to the 222 Foundation. Here’s what she says: “If anybody wants to make an offer, they can easily write an email to my address firstname.lastname@example.org.” The auction, she says, will end December 1.
Again, my friends, never forget that support, love, generosity and abundance is the reality of the world. We simply have to let go of old school ideas that tell us otherwise.
I love and appreciate you all SO, SO much. I’d love if, in the comments section below, you share three of your own blessings. Let’s keep watering those seeds.
Pam Grout is the author of 20 books including E-Squared, E-Cubed, Thank & Grow Rich and her latest book, The Course in Miracles Experiment: A Starter Kit for Rewiring Your Mind (And Therefore Your World).
Hi Pam!😊 I CANNOT wait for your new book! If u ONLY knew how MANY times your words have inspired me! I KNOW your Taz IS around n rightfully proud of her cool n kind mama!! Keep writing, its a gift for all of us!! Peace, Love , n 222 forevah! Donna 😎😘🎆😊😊😊😊
Thank you! I am so happy for all the ways Taz stays with me through all of you.
I LOVE women supporting women!Can’t wait for the book to come out!
I love women supporting women. Humans supporting humans. That’s how it’s supposed to be. Thanks!
AND FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU!
And I’m thankful for people like you!!!!
You are truly an empowered woman who empowers others, so looking forward to read your book, what a wonderful companion it will be to my ACIM.
Thank you so much.
So glad you’re already on the ACIM path.
The unlimited possibilities of the human spirit….
God bless you all,
Love those blessings. Thanks, as always, Mike!
Not many people can say the world was changed because they were born.
Now, without question, you can.
That’s so kind. Thank you!
I am so grateful to have found you, your books and your inspiration. It has helped, and continues to help, me shift my mindset, which I can blissfully share with my beautiful children.
Right at this very moment I feel blessed to see the sun shining, hear the birds singing and chirping out my bedroom window while I listen to music that makes me want to sing along. (I LOVE music!)
I feel such utter and total love for our gorgeous boxer/lab cross Sadie that we rescued sight unseen at 7 months old in February. She has had to undergo surgery on both front elbows and will need supporting throughout her life and I am so grateful she chose us since we can both help and live her. She has brought SO much joy into our home.
And, of course, like everyone else who loves you so much Pam, I can’t wait to buy your new book in January 🙂 x
Love Sadie, not live her, lol
Hello Sadie! You’re a lucky dog finding your true and rightful family!
1. I am grateful for courage and willingness to continue on this journey through what you have experienced.
2. I am grateful I can walk.
3. I am grateful for food and shelter.
Yes! Thank you!!!
WOW indeed! So much goodness coming through:) Thanks for sharing Pam! xo
Thank you, my beautiful artist friend. You’re on my list of gratitudes every day.
To be alive,
My life script,
and my challenges !
That’s some highly-enlightened thanks! Beautiful!
Pam, I am crying with tears of gratitude for you and how you keep showing up and inspiring us to, also.
Thanks so much, Mary!
Thank you Pam and I love you too 🙂 Every time I read your words I feel filled with a sense of potential – what a gift you have to communicate that energy. So that is one of my gratitudes: your wisdom and passion in my life. My others are that I am grateful that I am even having this precious human experience (ya!) and another is for the amazing and loving people I have in my life. Joy to all!!
What else could I say? JOY to all!
Pam thank you for reminding me to always be thankful. The Universe always provides us with all that is good. I am eagerly awaiting the release of your new book. I’m at work right now and I’m reading a post- it note I wrote a while back. Something I read in one of your posts: FREEING ELECTRIFYING JOY!
Ooh! The FEJ!! I love it. It’s a Zumba term and indeed it’s in the new book!
The beautiful Plum Village app for meditation.
Water. Sunshine . Air. My mother. Love. Books. Shakespeare. Tea. Orchids. The ability to read. Write. Speak.
Family. Dogs. Wolves. Whales. Dolphins. The beautiful earth.
Great list! I love Plum Village, too–didn’t know they had an app.
Those are very cool blessings indeed. Three recent blessings I’m grateful for are:
* an unexpected bonus in my income tax return – yay!
* the fabulous new heater installed on Monday – just in time for a typical Melbourne Spring cold snap!
* a delightful 6 hour catchup with a childhood friend visiting from interstate. We talked non stop that whole time! So grateful for lifelong friendships that last across distance, times of non-contact and life’s interruptions.
And Thankyou for YOU Pam and for your bright and bubbly light that joyfully inspires us to shine our own light in the world and with each other. Blessings galore to you!
Blessings galore to us all!
I have just pre-ordered your book and am so excited. I have been a student of ACIM for going on three years, and it was with your encouragement that I finally “took the course.” Life changing, indeed!!
I am grateful for my spiritual journey with God, as I know God!
I am grateful for family–which goes beyond blood.
I am grateful for “stillness” – which opens me up to more gratitude and joy.
Thank you for being your glorious self, for sharing Taz, and the connection you share with your readers. Amen.
Light & Love
Amen! Here’s to Taz, 222 and all of us on this incredible journey!
There are so many blessings in my world, here are 3:
My beautiful daughter- amazing little girl who is unique and shining and creative and deeply true
Beautiful people I get to come across every day- the amazing nurses I work with, inspiring simple elderly folk I get to help, beautiful souls who bump into me on the internet (like yourselves).
It’s all possible, especially the big stuff.
I love the metaphor of all of us bumping into each other here on the net. We’re creating sparks and static electricity of joy.
My blessings are many dear Pam, but I will just do today.
First is my Course in Miracle reading and spiritual time with my morning coffee.
Second is the arrival of my 17 month granddaughter who I watch while my daughter goes to work. Her hug and her smile heal me each and everyday.
Third is the relaxation time at the end of the day with a cup of tea, more books, and the peace of mind that I do my best to serve my family and the world each and everyday. Simple blessings which I am so grateful for. I cannot wait to start your book in January with you and Taz in my heart❤
You are in my heart, too! And while I can’t speak for Taz, I’m pretty sure you’re in her heart, too. Love, love, love!
I am grateful for:
My Faith – so many people don’t have any and it is my rock.
My Life – that God called me and said “Sharon, you’re up! Do a good job.”
My Family – who I love beyond all words and expression.
Pam Grout – for writing books and posts that inspire, motivate, re-energize, etc. etc. etc.
I am grateful for much more but this is a good start. Thank you, Pam. I think of you and the Mission that you and Taz have been engaged in and that it will continue. Imagine having your very own special Angel in Heaven to inspire you from on high. God Bless You.
I love that–“You’re up, Sharon.” All of us “are up!” Thanks for the reminder!
1. We sold our dryer when we need money!
2. We rent a house on the lake…I’ve wanted this for a long time and it finally came true!
3. I’m releasing the grip of the illusion of power that money gives!
I join you in your prayers for releasing the false illusion of money.
Hello from the Gold Coast in Australia!
You are starting to sound a bit like your old self again, which is really nice to hear….:-)
Just know that there are a lot of people from all over the world who are happy to share their precious energy with you … to support you…. rest with that thought for a while!
I will definitely be purchasing your new book when it comes out……
I will be forever grateful to you, because it was your E Squared book that started me on a ‘Spiritual Quest’ that has continued to grow and blossom to this very day……….
So glad you’re continuing to water your spiritual quest as it will continue to grow and blossom.
Thrilled for the support surrounding you! I’m happy that Dr. Northrup chose to support you. That was smart of her. A time for you to rest, reap and renew – xo
2. My Other Side Team
3. My Tribe
I love my “other side” team! So glad we all have that team and that we’re starting to let it work in our lives.
I am grateful for:
1. YOU Pam Grout
2. Your new book which I can’t wait to read
3. My beautiful grandchildren who teach me everything about love and being human that I had totally forgotten.
Thanks, Carol! Grandchildren are such wise teachers!
Can’t wait for our book to come out. You are a Blessing to the world. Stay Strong.
Thanks, Anthony! It’s kindness like yours that help me stay…mostly strong!
1) My family
2) My friends
3) “New thought” leaders including you, Pam.
Love and blessings,
Love and blessings right back!
I’m grateful for you and your work!
I’m grateful for laughter!
I’m grateful for my two wonderful cats!
Laughter and cats–what more do we need?
I started my day affirming that something amazingly awesome was going to happen today and it did!
1. I received a gift voucher for one of my favourite shops – a belated birthday gift from my brother who is currently abroad
2&3. I sent out 2 work-related queries and got positive responses back from both!
and kinda 3. or maybe 4. Someone very close to me had their offer on a house accepted and is super happy about getting his own place, which made me happy because he was happy 🙂
Thank you for you post Pam, it made me smile and I love all the good things happening for the 222 Foundation xxx
Yes, I’m so excited about the 222 Foundation and its reality-bending mission.
My husband, who incidentally was born on 2/22( I had tears come to my eyes when I discovered your story in a local magazine. It was synchronicity). Meeting new and wonderful people all of the time. Good Health.
-I’m grateful I broke my leg this summer it allowed me to slow down and enjoy my tween and teen boys.
-I’m grateful I just torn the MCL in my other leg just last week, again to slow me down right before the whirlwinds of the holidays
-I’m grateful I have read your books , followed your blog, and know that the universe has made me slow down, and now I’m paying attention😊❤️
Pam, I am so excited for you! Such good things you are doing for the world, and that are happening to, and for, you! I am very much looking forward to your book, and any others that come along in the future.
Three (of the infinite) things I am grateful for:
My incredible husband and family.
My amazing health and well being.
Some fantastic mentors, including YOU!
I will never forget the moment I first read one of your articles, and learned of you and E Squared. My life was already pretty great, but it has just gotten better and better, as I have learned and practiced so many of your experiments and party games!
222 to you!
222 to you, you, you! Love you, Pamela Joy!
As I sit here at the library the overhead lights are flashing off & on.
Your post today made me feel bettter & hope-full.
Grateful to be a good person, most of the time, ha.
Dear Marla–You are ALWAYS a good person. Sometimes, we just forget.
Absolutely fabulous gifts and blessings for the 222 Foundation. I have many blessings each day. A friend brought me food for ten days while I was very ill. Another friend did shopping for me and brought desserts. And now I am well and oh so thankful and happy. Plus I have two cats that entertain me with love all the time! 💕🐾
Those kitties–they’re supplying blessings all over the world.
I am grateful for seeing you Pam in public twice in the past few months. When I am blessed with seeing you a third time- if it’s appropriate- I vow to speak up and say hello in person. 🙂
Dear Trisha–I so HOPE you say something next time. Was that you I encountered coming across the railroad tracks? Anyway, I am so grateful to have a fellow love and peace comrade right here in NoLA.
I saw you at J&S and at the Library. I promise to say hello if our paths cross again! Much love!
You continue to astound me with your ideas and determination. Best Wishes. Janeal Krehbiel
Ideas and determination, eh? I’ll take it! Thanks!
Oh, I can hardly wait for the new book. And I’m only one of MANY!
Sent from my iPad
Giving birth to a book is always exciting. And scary. And, well, anything can happen.
I am so incredibly grateful for the love you so freely share with us all Pam!
I am grateful for my own gratitude posse, thanks to your suggestions we’re on Year 3!
I am grateful for inspiration that comes to support my journey with ACIM in weird and wonderful ways! Going to order your book. Thrilled to bits how the Universe is unfolding and the love keeps pouring in. Shine On! XoKate
Yay! Three years of a possibility posse! So excited for you!!!
My blessings are almost innumerable! Here are three:
1. So many people I love and am loved by, that make my world delightful win so many ways
2. My body feels and looks younger and more vibrant and energetic every day
3. My curiosity about the world around me, love and appreciation for our planet and everything in and on it, makes me excited to get up every morning
Innumerable blessings! May we all recognize this unshakable fact of life.
I can’t wait to read your next book!!!!
I am grateful for falling in love with a wonderful man (when I wasn’t looking and had been single for 40 years) at age 70!
I am grateful for all the love and joy in my life, from my fiance, grandchildren, daughter and many close friends.
I am grateful for my good health and positive attitude, and all the inspiration I receive from nature, many wise souls, great books, and mentors on this journey of my life.
I am eagerly awaiting the ACIM book from you, Pam. Thanks for sharing your story and Taz’s of your life journeys with all of us!
Now, that’s an exciting love story! Thanks for sharing! Love is always on its way, right?
And……… your raw, loving, light-filled, witty and humorous truth that you so bravely share with us.
We are all so very blessed.🙏
Raw? Witty? Who me? Thanks, my friend!
I am grateful for
Finding “Thank & Grow Rich” at a time in my life when I needed it most.
Practicing Gratitude Every Day and feeling my life change immeasurably
Having a Fantastic Loving Family
Funny how gratitude changes everything!
I am grateful for
Meowing kitty cat
Great cup of coffee
Running hot and cold water
Until we don’t have running hot and cold (which sometimes happens in countries I visit), we don’t realize what an incredible gift. We take so much for granted.
Pam! Love all of this great news!! This morning I was listening to Jeralyn Glass’s Tune Up Tuesday and the theme was about the vibrational frequency of gratitude! You will love it if you see it on her page!
I’m grateful that I am married to the love of my life, for you and all of my friends who really are my family, and family,…..and of course birds!! Lots of birds!
Can’t wait for the book, and I LOVE the cover!!
So glad you like the cover! I didn’t drop to my knees when I saw it, but, hey, if you like it, that’s good enough for me.
It’s hard to stop at three because I am SO blessed each and every day!
I am grateful for my family and the love we share.
I am grateful each day to have another chance to make a difference on this planet.
I am grateful for you, because five years ago I was struggling to find my Spiritual path and your book, Thank and Grow Rich got the ball rolling! Without you I don’t believe I’d be as far along on my wonderful journey as I am now. You helped open the door and showed me how to look for the good and start counting my blessings and I thank you.
I’ve pre-ordered the book and look forward to reading it!
Isn’t that the coolest thing? How gratitude multiples everything!
I am grateful for you, for the strength that you have and it is very contagious.
I am grateful for life, for nature. Some lessons are hard and causes pain but having a amazing people like you, makes more doable.
I am grateful for my family, our health and blessings.
Send you a big hug. Pam, you are extraordinary.
Thanks for the big hug! You, too, are extraordinary!
I was laid off two months ago from a 25 year career (that I did not enjoy, btw). I had dreamed of owning my own business for years. I’m now grateful that, 1#, I was freed from a job that I didn’t enjoy (which included a hefty severance!). #2, I had an art director friend offer to do my business logo for free and it’s exactly what I wanted. And 3rd, a friend of a friend who heard I wanted to open my own business has offered to take me to Atlanta for a premiere buying show…for free!! #attitudeofgratitude
That’s how it works, my friend! Congrats! And magnanimous blessings!
Looking forward to this book!🙏
Love the other ones👍👍👍
I’m excited to get your new book and will order now. Gratitude is imperative. I have more than 3 things but I’ll stick to 3 here.
!. I’m still breathing
2. I can think with an open mind and heart
3. I can still hear and see.
None of these things can be taken for granted anymore. I’m a happy person and grateful for every moment. Thank you for sharing so much with us.
That’s so kind! I’m so grateful I get to share!
I’m grateful for your books! Your attitude is contagious, empowering and an awesome example to us mere mortals, ha! Thank you for all you do.
Ha ha! I’m definitely a mere mortal! And also a holy son of the Dude, as we all are!
Pam, you always inspire me. Yesterday I had a tiny little problem, which I blew up into a lot of anger. After reading your post, I shook my head at myself. I forgot to accept whatever I’m feeling and then turn back to positive thoughts. Thanks! I can’t wait to have your book on my night stand.
Here’s to not only being on nightstands, but to living within our attitudes and hearts.
Yep! That too! Having the book on my nightstand helps me absorb the energy as I sleep as well.
1) Any day Pam Grout shows up in my inbox, twitter feed, or some other means.
2) Any day my feet hit the floor and I find myself vertical, once again.
3) Any day I hear from one of my children or they stop by to fill my house, once again, with their beautiful Light.
Any day I am asked to only list three blessings.
What a Joy you are.
I have already started telling friends to save the May 3rd date.
Oh yay! We’ll finally get to meet on May 3. Can’t wait!
Pam, you are such an inspiration. When I discovered your book E Squared, it was the beginning of a brand new adventure! Your thoughts and ideas led me to create a life I absolutely love! I cannot wait to read your new book and start putting it into practice as I know, once again, it is going to have an amazing effect on the way I live my life. Thank you for your blogs and emails. Long may they continue. Continue living your best life and sharing it with us all, much love xxx
Much love boomeranging back to you!
I have the three biggest blessings of all:
Yes! And the best thing is that you having those things doesn’t keep all of us from having those thing! Love, only love!
I’ve been saying “something amazing is going to happen today” and a few days ago my boss approached me about a new role that is basically my dream job. But… I said well maybe I should do this first to prove myself bla, bla, bla etc. Afterwards I realized I had been given a gift and potentially screwed it up and was really kicking myself. Today, still practicing “something amazing is going to happen” my boss told me it was a done deal, the dream job was mine if I want it. I am so grateful. Thank you for your teachings.
Since my life-altering stroke in 2010, a lot of things have happened to me; a lot of them very good. The bad ones even worked out as I always wished to be able to stay at home all the time and still make enough to life comfortably on. This wasn’t quite what I meant, but the universe has a sense of humor, too! From my computer desk at home now, I have manage to do over 8 years of blogging, help my mom survived losing Dad and Sis in the last 3 years, and still drive and take care of myself at home.
As far as recent new things, I do have a strange one. I, generally, go on Tuesday evenings to Cracker Barrel, my fav place, and have dinner with my two Buds. Then one Bud comes to my house and we watch a movie or several episodes of a series on Netflix. I have to say that This past Tues I got up and did not feel on top of the world. I remember just thinking in passing how, perhaps, I should call the one Bud and tell him not to drive all the way here as I just didn’t feel like a movie. I didn’t; I let the universe do its stuff; he forgot to come! I didn’t want him sick and he wasn’t. I came home and relaxed and am looking forward to next Tuesday. Sounds strange, but that’s a positive in my book where the universe looked out for me.
Hello, I want to know if you have your new book available in Spanish.

I live in Northern California and recently, along with hundreds of thousands, had my power turned off due to the horrible fires raging. I am so grateful
1. That the fires didn’t threaten me or those I love
2. My power was back on in 2 days, and because I have a gas stove I didn’t really suffer
3. The thousands of First Responders who came from all over the country to fight the fires, with no loss of life!
Every day I wake up and give gratitude for the chance to live another day, and make a difference. Your posts are so meaningful to me, and I wish you continued strength to continue on your path of high energy and loving creation!
So happy you are alright and so aware of blessings surrounding you
So I was just at a Mystic Journey bookshop in Venice CA, and I went in not expecting to buy anything because I was “running low” on money. Then I saw your Thank and Grow Rich book, and because I devoured E square and E Cubed I really wanted to get this one because I was in some desperate need of FP reassurance. Funny part about this is that I actually had gotten Thank ans Grow Rich about 4 years ago and after I read the first chapter I lost the book! But I figured maybe someone else needed it more at that moment. Then my friend hearing this bought me another copy for my birthday a year later and then you won’t believe it but after I finished the first chapter, our house burned down in the California wildfires, so I lost it again! Lol and I told this to the check out girl and she suggested I write to you and share this funny story. I did finally buy it a third time so hopefully this time it sticks! But anyway I figured it’s a great excuse to finally write to you. Thank you for all that you do Pam! You’ve honestly changed my life so much. Sending love and peace always ❤️
Grateful that I found you and your work!
Grateful that I’m 138 days alcohol free!
Grateful that I have a quiet moment to reflect – right here, right now.
Hi Pam, reading you is always motivating and makes me want to move on, I admire you too much.
my path began in April of this year when I started reading your book Thanks and Generates Abundance, this split my life in 2 and every day I am more convinced that the path of thanks for everything, small medium or large, is what attracts the most and more blessings to our lives.
Amazing things have happened this year.
First I met a dream trip with my husband and daughter Vale, 10, Madrid, Barcelona and Paris.
Then I created two groups of women with many dreams to fulfill, manifesting in my life and transforming it.
and this October I was given an opportunity for my work to concoer CHina, wow Beijing divine. and back to take advantage and find myself in LA with my sister who I had not seen for a year and a half.
I know that this year will continue to manifest infinite blessings in my life and in all those around me. and 2020 will arrive brimming with thousands and thousands more.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
With love Iveth

Oh my gosh…… the message just send by itself some how!!!! I was making changes to it and wanted to delete and add some other things… I am crazy believer though that things do happen for a beautiful reason, even though we might not see right then.
All I can say now is that I love you tremendously and think of both of you constantly and every time I see 222 I think of how amazing you are. I am sure my daughter would love to also volunteer at any of your 222 foundation events as a singer to help spread the 222 foundation love.
I love you forever and send you so much more light, positive energy and of course, so much more love 💕
