E-Squared Experiment #2

This is the third post regarding the experiments listed in the best-selling book E-Squared (Hay House, 2013) by Pam Grout. The second experiment is referred to by Ms. Grout as the Volkswagon Jetta Principle. The theory as explained by Ms. Grout is that we all impact the Field of Potentiality and draw from it according to our beliefs and expectations. The question is do I really see only what I expect to see? The hypothesis is if I decide to look for beige cars and butterflies, I will find them. The time frame for the experiment began on October 6, 2013 at 6:30 PM. The experiment was to last for 48 hours, ending on October 8 at the same time.


I decided to look for beige cars for the first 24 hours and then look for butterflies during the second 24 hours. When I was reading this experiment, I was in a public place on a river near my hometown which is only about three minutes away from my house. As soon as I got up to leave and go home, I decided to start the experiment looking for beige cars. During this very brief ride, I saw no less than nine beige cars. Right off the bat, I got some wonderful reinforcement that we really do see that which we expect to see. This indicates to me that we are definitely influencing what happens in our world.


Throughout the next day until 6:30 PM, I saw a total of 156 beige cars. The interesting thing is that I did not drive very far or very long during that period. I did not venture out again that evening and the next day I made 2 trips around town to do errands. The total time spent on the road was probably about an hour and a half. I was astounded by the number of beige cars I saw during that time. I really did get the feeling that I was creating my own reality. I should also point out that I was driving in a relatively small city of only about 20,000 persons, so it’s not as if I was driving downtown in a major city where there was massive traffic.


The second part of the experiment seemed to me to be less likely to be successful. I would be looking for butterflies at a time of year when they are much rarer than during the spring and summer. I live in Maryland and these beautiful creatures are not often seen during October. I was wondering how this was going to work but still had faith underneath it all. During this time frame, I remember reaching into my kitchen cabinet to get a glass for water. Lo and behold, my hand, without me really looking, reached for a glass which contained a painting of three butterflies. The book explained that I had to see butterflies but not necessarily live ones. Those three butterflies on the glass counted against the results of this experiment. The next day, I saw two additional butterflies in pictures on the Internet, for a total of five butterflies. It is interesting to note that since that time, although the weather is getting more and more, I’ve actually seen three or four real live butterflies out in nature and several additional pictures.


I went into this with the ideathat this work with the Field of Potentiality would allow me to harness this force to make my life even better. The successful experiments reinforced this idea and I was very excited about continuing them. To me, there is absolutely no doubt that we create our own lives. In the next blog post, I will discuss the results I had with experiment number three, which were very interesting, to say the least.

    Yeah, I did the one about looking for cars. And guess what? I can’t STOP seeing them. They’re literally everywhere! I chose two different kinds of cars that I don’t usually notice. And now I see them in everything, from pictures, to movies, to everyday life. I think that’s proof it works. At least that this particular one does. It’s been about eight months. Still going strong.
