Houston, we have a winner…29 winners of the E3 Selfie Challenge

“Remember…nobody wins unless everybody wins.”—Bruce Springstein
E3 Bookie!!
Gosh, you guys! It was utterly impossible to pick winners of the E-Cubed Selfie Challenge. Creativity and joy and excitement just oozed out of every entry. In the end, I had to throw all the entries in a hat and eenie-minie mo it.

Seriously, you guys are all SO. COOL! I feel honored to be sharing the same planet with you. I did notice a couple trends. Quite a few of you will soon be traveling and publishing books. At least five of you want to meet Ellen DeGeneres although I also got a kick out of the entrant that wants to meet Brett Favre.

I wish from the bottom of my heart I could give away prizes to every last one of you. I really, really do. You all deserve it! And I can’t wait to hear the stories about how all your new visions and dreams and intentions came true.

But since Hay House has only given me 4 pair of tickets, the organizers of the cruise to Alaska cancelled the cruise (sorry about that! Out of my hands!) and I’ve got a mere 25 Donor’s Choose cards, here are the names that came out of the hat:

A pair of tickets to any one of the four North American I Can Do It conferences:

1. Nora Giron-Dolce. This fabulous author from Mexico sent in numerous entries including meeting Paul McCartney and having a bestselling book in Mexico. She even wrote her affirmation on a beach—sound familiar?).

2. Laura Duksta. This multi-talented woman from Nashville, Tennessee is producing an album with all the big names in country music.

3. Brandi Russell. What isn’t Brandi doing? The coolest thing, beside her selfie wearing a top hot, is that Brandi is making sure kids know they’ve got the power to create worlds.

4. Carla Golden. Can’t wait to skate at this woman’s holistic skating center!!

I will send each of you a facebook message with instructions on how to claim your free tickets.

The following 25 names will be receiving a Donor’s Choose Card. I learned about this wonderful charity from Biz Stone, the founder of Twitter who I’ve blogged about on more than one occasion. He learned about Donor’s Choose from Stephen Colbert when he appeared on his show, the Colbert Report.

Basically, you’ll be getting the chance to pick a classroom to support (on me), a classroom that might need say 25 copies of Charlotte’s Web or clay for a pottery project. If you see your name here, please send me your address (see the contact form here) so I can forward on your card.

1. Heather Alpers.
2. Carrie Sailer Starr
3. Allison Volk
4. Dana Dolsen
5. Asa Thuvesen
6. Greg Hamel
7. Wayne Adkins
8. Madonna Murphy
9. Natasha Bron
10. Mette B. Soby
11. Penne Davidson Ard
12. Gi Sand
13. Doug Beckerman
14. Ann Ladouceur
15. Tasha Hall
16. Carol Doberstein
17. Sasha Gidget Gary
18. Cheryl Lynn Gibbs
19. Kelly Blue Book
20. Kimberley Chilcote
21. Andrea Sebastiano
22. Sasha Gidget Gary
23. Bator Hos-Katalin
24. Bindy Barker
25. Rochelle Campbell

Thanks everybody for entering. And, as I said, every last one of you is a winner. I love you all.

Pam Grout is the author of 17 books including E-Squared: 9 Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality and the recently-released sequel, E-Cubed, 9 More Experiments that Prove Mirth, Magic and Merriment is your Full-time Gig.

Miracles are natural, normal daily occurrences for those with the eyes to see.

‘If miracles had chemical equations then everyone would believe.”
― Cecelia Ahern
Let me start by announcing that 24 winners have been chosen for the E-Cubed Selfie Challenge. As I’ve said countless times, everyone who entered automatically won because by simply creating a new vision for yourself, you’ve started the ball rolling for that reality’s manifestation. So congratulations to all!

An official announcement will be made tomorrow.

For today, I want to share a miracle story, one of many discussed in yesterday’s power posse. We had so much fun talking about these so-called miracles that we decided two things:

1.A miracle is only labeled a miracle until science decides to put its stamp on it, decides to call it “doable.” Who’d have thought 200 years ago we could flip a switch and create light or talk with a human being on the other side of the planet?

2. We decided that miracles are NOT anomalies and we look forward to the day when people discuss their latest miracles the way we discuss the weather.

I, for one, am committed to being that crazy person who believes in magic and mystery and things without logical explanations.

When Robbin was a young girl, she had a pet named Missy Mouse. As Rhonda pointed out, one man’s vermin is another man’s pet. Anyway, the wheel in Missy’s cage squeaked so Robbin’s mom, not a fan of squeaky wheels, insisted she leave the cage on the back porch. One day, when the temperature dropped below freezing, young Robbin went out to find Missy in full-blown rigor mortis, her tiny mouse legs stiff and sticking straight up in the air.

Robbin, of course, knew the Bible stories, and decided to bring Missy back to life.

Her embarrassed mother tried to explain that Missy had gotten too cold and had frozen to death.

“Well that’s okay,” Robbin said, “We can put her in the oven.”

Her mom, trying desperately to think of the best explanation for her faith-filled daughter, finally agreed to hang the cage up by a heating vent.

Robbin, in the way only a small child can believe, prayed for Missy’s future. They both went on with their day.

And within a couple hours, “Squeak, squeak.”

Missy Mouse was not only alive, but she was running once again in her squeaky hamster wheel.

The best parenting advice ever.

“Love gives us some pretty darn cool quantum powers.”—Greg Kuhn

My new favorite pastime while flying (at least when seatmates make it abundantly clear they don’t want to chat) is reading the New Yorker. Last week I read about a seven minute workout, custom cookie cutters made from a 3D printer and a 27-year old genius named Emerson Spartz who has already launched dozens of highly-successful websites.

His first, when he was 12, was Muggle.net, the most popular Harry Potter fan site in the world. It landed him on CNN and Fox News and J.K. Rowling even invited him to her estate in Scotland. Today, he has nearly 50 employees and raises millions in ad revenue every year. Did I mention he’s 27?

The thing about Emerson that most interested me was something his parents insisted upon when he was a kid. I have no idea if they made him pick up his room or eat vegetables. But there was one thing that was non-negotiable. He was required to read four short biographies of very successful people. Every single day.

In other words, his parents made it compulsory that he fill his mind with possibility, that he focus on success, that he learn about what a little creativity and vision can accomplish.

It’s like I always say: We animate into our lives whatever we place our attention upon.

Tell me in the comment section below what you’re going to place your attention upon this week.

And, just so you know, the E-Cubed Selfie Challenge will end on February 17, my birthday. So one thing on which to place your attention this week is the vision you want to create in your E-Cubed Selfie. If you’re new to the party, you can read about it here.

Make this week shine, my friends.

The world is your dance floor or why this weekend is destined to be the best weekend of your life

“I am abundant, proud, generous, unafraid, willing, welcoming, just as I am.”—Grace Bell
zabat mindful selfie
I LOVE all the E-Cubed selfies that are coming in. It’s so exciting to see everyone’s vision for a new 2015.
The one featured here is photoshopped from Marcella from Italy who wants to meet Jon Kabat-Zinn.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m incredibly blessed, so spectacularly lucky because I get reminders every single day about how bountiful the universe is. I get emails from readers who tell me their amazing stories.

Here are just a couple that have come in over the past few days:

From Fleur:

“My girlfriend told me about your first book but my local bookstore only had your new book so I google E2 vs E3 and watched only one video which was a minute long of an American man saying in the first book you do experiments where you for example say you’re going to see red Cadillacs and I had a fleeting thought of “well you wouldn’t say that here in Australia because we don’t have Cadillacs” then went on with my day.

“The next day I sat down and asked the universe to send me a sign that my visualizations were indeed in the making. I asked for a sign over the weekend that would leave me no doubt that it was from the Universe,

“Well about 30 minutes later I looked out the window and there stopped in front of our house was a blue Cadillac! Left hand drive and all! He then backed up into our neighbours driveway. I actually went out side to check I wasn’t imagining it.

“What makes this even more awesome is that we live in a gated community..at the end of a cul de sac! I see a maximum of about 5 cars a day and I know 4 out of 5 of those!

“It REALLY made me laugh 🙂 And believe.”

From Joe:

Hi! Just letting you know that within less than 12 hours of me purchasing E2 and trying out the first experiment, I stumbled across the answer to a question I have been trying to discover for over a year. Truly amazed. Can’t wait to delve deeper! “

From Alissa:

“I have a bone to pick with you!…. Your book got me pregnant!… By page 40!

“I just got esquared and tried the first experiment the first day I got the book. So, experiment one, I asked for an unmistakable unexpected blessing within 48 hours. This is Wednesday, 1.30pm, so my deadline is Friday 16th January 1.30pm (today)Ha ha!! This is so funny.

“So as soon i as start reading the book I start to radiate light, love and happiness for the first time in several months. It caused an end to my gloom and I really started feeling positive. I walk down the street literally beaming from one ear to the next, a bit excited about my surprise. That night I pick up the newspaper and go to the car section to pull it out to cover the table with so my daughter can paint- what does it say on the cover page? In huge letters? Feeling positive. I laugh out loud and feel grateful for this affirmation.

“The next day I get a voicemail from my partner with a beautiful heartfelt message telling me he loves me and thinks I’m an amazing mother. So I think, ok, I’ve had a lovely affirmation and that is certainly an unexpected blessing (my partner rarely leaves messages like that and is a lot more hands than heart normally). But part of me thinks maybe there might be something more to come by Friday. It gets to Friday. I check the mail, check my phone, check my emails….nope, no unexpected blessings there.

“My period is late (but only by one day) my boobs are sore, I’m feeling nauseous. The possibility of being pregnant seems as likely in my mind as snow falling during a fiery summer heat wave ….my partner and I have only had sex twice in the last three weeks… and we used contraception. I think about it…An unexpected blessing… Hmmm… I decide it’s crazy but I will get a pregnancy test and decide to wait till my partner gets home so we can do it together. I go out to the shops, get the test and come home. And guess what? We cannot believe our eyes… It’s positive! And guess what time it is? To.the.minute…1.30pm Friday 16th January.

“It has been my hearts desire to have another child for years but after a failed pregnancy we have been waiting for the perfect time. Which, it seems God has chosen is now! “

And since it’s Friday, it’s time for another video. Have the best weekend of your life. And remember, it better have dancing.

Who needs a guru when you have a power posse?

“Worry is a misuse of the imagination.”—quote by Dan Zadra that I’ve always loved, but had forgotten until I was reminded of it by Cindy from my Sunday posse

I’ve repeated this at least as many times as you’ve heard Uptown Funk** this week. I cherish, adore, love and appreciate the beloved friends who I get together with every week when I’m in town. This is a group of brilliant lights who happen to know they’re brilliant lights, who live and act like brilliant lights. Lots of folks haven’t learned that tiny, but oh-so-vital piece of universal intelligence.

I, for one, woke up this morning doing everything I know not to do and doing none of the things I know to do. I didn’t consciously create my day, I didn’t repeat my Amazingly Awesome affirmation and, heck, I almost didn’t even go to my group. I was slightly mopey, worrying about my daughter’s semester in Costa Rica, feeling guilty because I’m less-than-perfect. You know, the typical effed-up human thoughts that are only as true as the energy I put into them.

So I walked in late and just seeing the faces of all these beautiful human beings who were deep into meditation completely shifted my nonsensical thinking. By the end of the group, I was swing dancing with Trina.

So here’s the thing I keep saying. It’s imperative to do this high-vibe business with others who are a) committed to bringing their best game b) who know the only thing worth talking about is what’s working and c) who know that we are ALL beautiful lights with beautiful ideas to change the world.

To paraphrase Tiny Tim, “Thank you, everyone ONE.” For bringing it (the light, that is). For believing that together, arm in arm, heart to heart, we CAN change the dominant paradigm.

I love you all.

Why upgrading your beliefs and expectations will create an exciting new story in 2015

“If we do not change what we believe, we will create in 2015 the same thing we’ve created in 2014….2013, 2012….”—David Moser

Whatever your dream is for 2015, there’s only one way to reach it.

You’ve got to change your beliefs and expectations. About what’s possible. About the way the world works.

Whether you want more money, a loving relationship, or a new and exciting career, you’ve got to upgrade your views. You’ve got to create a new vision and begin to believe more in the new vision than in “what is.”

Focusing on “what is” only slows the process down.

Anything is possible. But you’ve got to elevate your beliefs and expectations. And to remember these 11 words: The universe has your back and everything’s going to be okay.

Don’t forget to show us your selfie (and your new vision) in the E-Cubed Selfie Challenge.

What’s your biggest, baddest, boldest vision for 2015? #E3 Selfie Challenge

“What you believe to be possible will always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.” ― Anthon St. Maarten10865791_10204553979061768_1480909559492752099_o

So excited by all the E3 Selfies being posted to my Facebook page. I’m seeing everything from exciting new relationships to bestselling books to a green smoothie delivery business.

Here’s why this fun process is so powerful. When you focus on what you desire and only on what you desire, the universe figures out a way to make it come true. When you create a vision (like an E3 Selfie), you’ve started the ball rolling for its easy manifestation.

Our job as quantum effects animators has one simple step: Focus on what we want.

Notice our job DOES NOT include plans for HOW we’re going to get it, WHEN it’s going to come, or WHERE we’ll find it.

How, when and where are completely irrelevant.

Instead envision “the WHAT”—the end result. By starting at the end (the fruition of your dreams) and letting go, the universe can work its blessed magic. It really is that simple.

For those who missed it, here’s the post again about the E-Cubed Selfie Challenge.

“The rich substance of the universe is yours to do with as you wish.”—Catherine Ponder

Fans of E-Squared and E-Cubed know they draw into their lives whatever they focus upon. They know that by simply setting an intention and visualizing themselves doing, being or having something, that reality (one of many in the quantum playground) becomes animated in their life. That’s where the now-ubiquitous selfie comes in.

Simply snap a selfie of yourself (and a “bookie” of E-Cubed***) with whatever you want to manifest. Maybe it’s standing in front of your dream house or test driving a new Lamborghini. The bigger and more exciting your dream (Keep in mind Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t say “I have a goal.”), the better your chances of winning cool prizes.

Did someone say prizes? By tagging your E3 selfies to Pam Grout’s fan page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pam-Grout/108764901734), you’ll be entered to win all sorts of free prizes from tickets to Hay House’s 2015 I Can Do It! conferences to an all-expenses paid travel gig with Pam Grout.

There’s more. Wait for it!!! Perhaps the best prize are the 20 DonorsChoose gift cards that will be given out to support your favorite charity. It’s one thing to manifest a pair of diamond earrings, something several readers of E-Squared reported, but whilst tuning in to this happy, abundant frequency, it’s also possible to make the world a better place. The E3 Selfie Challenge will do just that.

Prizes (25 in total) will be rewarded to the most creative selfies, to the selfies that first duplicate themselves in reality and to the selfie with the biggest and highest vision for world change.
