“It is quite possible to leave your home for a walk in the early morning and return a different person—beguiled and enchanted.”—Mary Ellen Chase
One of my favorite things about traveling is that I don’t have a car.
Here in Cadiz, I take long walks beside the beach. To the market. Through the park.
Walking opens up a bigger world than the one allowed through the modern lens of seeing.
It reaches beyond our normal habits of zooming by, minds awhirl, barely noticing life’s countless gifts. In a car, I’d never see the neon pink hibiscus, the lime green parrots flitting in and out of palm trees, the gleeful children chasing seagulls.
When you walk, life extends beyond its normal constraints. It seems rife with possibility, infected with infinity.
Which also happens to be the intention of my writing, both here on the blog and in my books.
As many of you may know, today, August 1, is the debut of the 10-year-anniversary of E-Squared. It was my 16th book, but the first to fly off into the stratosphere, having, at last count, been translated into 40 some languages.
Although I’ll never know for sure which powerful genie took that book under its watchful care, I often credited it to the affirmation I etched into the beach on Tybee Island, Georgia.
On New Years Eve 2012, one month before it debuted, I wrote with a big stick in the sand: E-Squared will be an international bestseller. And then I let the waves take it out into the universe.
This morning, as the sun was rising here in Cadiz, I took another big stick and wrote yet another beach affirmation. This one said: E-Squared=Peace and Freedom for All.
That’s my highest hope. That it will open new possibilities, that it will shift the balance of the world from separation and limitation towards authentic freedom and love. In other words, towards who we really are.
Here’s the scoop from the email she sent out to her pals:
I am a Pam Grout super-fan – and I recently heard that her book E-Squared has been updated with a 10-year anniversary edition. I GOT ALL EXCITED!!
I did all 9 of the experiments 10 years ago when the book first came out and every day and every experiment was mind-blowing and magical.
It was like being a kid again. It’s a very playful book and it will bring you back to being a child again.
So when I heard that there was an updated version, I knew I wanted to do these 9 experiments again.
My initial idea was that I would do it by myself. I love reading and it was just going to be my own private book study.
But then I thought: WHY NOT INVITE OTHERS TO JOIN????? Why not create a book study group??
Why not throw a party??
So I have created a pop-up Facebook group for the month of August 2023 for the Pam Grout E-Squared book.
It’s free. It’s private. But you do need to be on Facebook. And you do need a copy of the book or the audio version.
Pop-up means this is a temporary group – it will be up for the month of August – it’s a place for us to share our experiences with Pam’s book.
IMPORTANT: THIS GROUP IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO PARTICIPATE IN READING THE E-SQUARED BOOK, DOING THE 9 EXPERIMENTS OR LISTENING TO THE AUDIO VERSION.
If that’s you … come join me and others on Facebook. Here is the link to request to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pamgrout
All my love to you,
So you are officially invited to join the party. But most of all, I want you to know, I remain forever grateful and overjoyed to be part of the extraordinary awakening happening right here on Planet Earth.
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)
