ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: the Law of Attraction and the Power of Your Mind – lessons learnt and new tools
I recently read Pam Grout‘s book E-Squared, a book which could be best described as a lab manual with simple experiments to prove the power of your mind in shaping your reality and your life. You are what you believe and what you say you are, and so is your life, and I loved it.
Reading it was not enough, so I started doing the experiments and documenting them in my blog.
The journey was incredible – if you follow my blog, you know I had great fun – and I started manifesting small things, synchronicities, and all in all that life is good. So you need to choose to focus on that. Plus, whilst being deep and meaningful, Grout’s writing style is also witty and joy on steroids.
At the end of the 9th experiment, I was sad, I didn’t want it to end, so I bought E-Cubed – the follow-up. E-Cubed takes the same principles and experiments from E-Squared to the next level – proving that once you have control of your mind, life gets groovy. Life is meant to be easy, fun, and abundant.
What’s not to like about proving that?
In my journey reading the two books and practising the first one(so far), I have found other useful tools and learnt new lessons (you see, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. And I’m grateful Grout showed up at this point in my life).
THE TEACHERS APPEARED
Tools and Lessons: A Course in Miracles – a self-study program in spiritual psychology that Grout has been practising and teaching for over 20 years that advocates consciousness creates the material world. We decide how we will experience our life (a hard lesson to learn but also soooo liberating once you know you can flip from your current situation to the one you choose).
Write for Your Life by Lawrence Block – a Home Seminar for Writers. Now, this was a surprise for me and a big lesson – who would have thought that such a successful published writer and N1 New York Times multiple Best Selling Author (Grout) had once confidence issues and wrote affirmations daily (from Block’s book). This was a revelation for me, we all have doubts or inferiority complexes (or impostor syndrome, or you name it), but nothing is impossible. Life is meant to be easy, remember?
LESSON LEARNED FROM E-SQUARED AND E-CUBED
The following lessons are even better (especially as an author): Grout wrote E-Squared nine years before it became an international best selling book translated into 30 languages.
Was the book much different? Not much besides the title (God Doesn’t Have Bad Hair Day) and a new publisher (Hay House). But her consciousness was and so her commitment to total joy. At the time of publishing the book, Hay House sent Grout Platform by Michael Hyatt, a book to become a social media maven, the main point of which is. Blog. EVERY-DAY!!! That -is- it!
As an author, both Write for Your Life and Platform are very appealing (hey, if they worked for THE Pam Grout, surely they can do something for me too).
Blogging every day is also a point to take up. I enjoyed diarising the writing of my book. STOP IT! It’s all in your head (shameless plug) and even more so documenting the nine experiments from E-Squared, so this is something I can take up. I have bought both books (A Course in Miracles and Write for Your Life), and I’m looking forward to the possibilities.
Bottom line: the experimentation continues with E-Cubed. Watch this space…
