Manifest Miracles

Tap Into the Field of Infinite Possibility

 

“Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today.”
 

These are the first words Pam Grout speaks when she rises every morning before dancing her way into the bathroom. She plays a favorite uplifting tune such as Pharrell William’s Happy or Abba’s Dancing Queen and creates a sassy choreography complete with fist pumps, joyous jumps and a little rhythmic strutting.

Her easy positive actions take no longer than it would to worry, “How will I get everything done today?” and then trudging into the bathroom feeling fatigued and overwhelmed. Plus, Grout’s playful attitude makes a big difference in the rest of the day’s outcomes.

Grout is the author of two internationally bestselling books, E-Squared and E-Cubed. Both offer readers multiple opportunities to experience a disarmingly simple outlook on life. “There is an infinite force of potentiality in the universe that has our backs and wants to interact with us and guide us,” Grout believes. “There is no absolute reality; we create the reality that serves us and places our attention on what we most want.”

Letting Go of Doubt

Grout’s journey to a life filled with joy and miracles is ongoing. As a freelance writer, she initially struggled with self-doubt, wondering, “What do I, a kid from Kansas, have to offer a New York City editor?” and came face-to-face with fears about money. Even though she was earning a decent living, she was recycling her parents’ anxieties about not having enough. “I’m not good enough” was another party crasher.

When she began studying A Course in Miracles, Grout learned that consciousness creates the material world and the importance of self-compassion. She examined her staunch beliefs, questioning if they were true and letting go of the tiresome stories of inadequacy and worry. She began focusing on life’s blessings and noticed how concentrating on the good made life happier and more dynamic. Then she started to lay out simple intentions such as finding a good parking spot or uncovering a lost object. The results were immediate and intriguing.

This seeker of truth realized that to gain real spiritual growth, she needed to become more deliberate, so she designed a scientific framework, set a clear intention, imposed a deadline and noted the results. “The results were so convincing that I decided to see if my experiments would work for other people,” Grout says. Before long, friends and acquaintances were manifesting all kinds of amazing things, and she decided to write about her theories. Ten years later, after a steep learning curve in the publishing world, her work became globally acclaimed.

Tapping a Joyful Reality of Miracles

“This little book will prove to you once and for all that your thoughts have power, and that a field of infinite possibilities awaits your claim,” the author writes in E-Squared. “It will help you rewrite the outdated thinking that drives your life.”

Nine easy energy experiments will prove that the “field of potentiality,” as Grout calls it, is dependable, predictable and available to all. She equates our connection with the field to plugging in a toaster. We know the energy field is there, but we need to consciously “plug in” to use it.

Grout details powerful spiritual principles that help us make everyday life richer, more meaningful and more fun. Part of her “new curriculum” includes:

• Reality is waves of possibility that we have “observed” into form.

• We are an energy field, connected with everything and everyone in the universe.

• Our universe connection provides accurate and unlimited guidance.

• Whatever we focus on expands.

• The universe is limitless, abundant and surprisingly accommodating.

“Believe in your bones that the universe is bountiful and supportive,” encourages Grout, asking us to first give the “field” 48 hours to send an unexpected gift. Don’t specify the gift, but just ask to receive and recognize the blessing. Set a deadline and then watch what unfolds.

Making Dreams Come True

Making our dreams a reality for us is not only possible, it’s probable. The key is opening our hearts to the beneficent universe. “If you want to know what will happen in your life, listen to the words coming out of your mouth,” Grout advises.

If we are deluged with negative thoughts, stop and notice all that is right in our world. Ask the universe for help in shedding dark ruminations. When we replace poor images with positive affirming thoughts, our lives become more magical and enjoyable.

Grout encourages her readers to invoke two words when life feels chaotic and out of control: “It’s okay,” which allows the loving flow of the universe to do the heavy lifting. Concentrating on living our joys equips us to help ourselves and others.

Grout queries, “Since we are creating our reality, why not create the possibilities that bring us closer to our life’s purpose and higher self?”
