You Must Use Emotion to Be Successful at Manifesting

The art of manifesting is dependent upon belief. The theory behind this is that you can literally call into your life anything you would like. Most of us have deeply held belief systems which were developed prior to the age of seven. If we come from a background of lack and want, we’re likely to believe in it so strongly that we continue to manifest that same result throughout the rest of our lives, unless an awakening occurs and one has a strong motivation to rewire one’s brain.

One great example of this is a story told by Pam Grout, author of E-Squared, published by Hay House Publishers. Ms. Grout gave the example of a young woman whose grandparents and parents had been wealthy. She therefore lived in the belief system that this was how her life was going to be, without any doubt or question. As a young woman, she decided to divest herself of most of her fortune by giving it away to needy causes. This felt really right to her at the time and did turn out to be a wonderful decision as the various charities benefited a great deal. However, her belief in prosperity was so strong that within a year, without even really trying, she made another $1 million. This shows how one’s thinking and conditioning brings about the results one expects.

I am gearing today’s comments to those challenged in bringing in abundance. In my opinion, the reason these challenges occur is because the “lack and want” belief system is still stuck so strongly in place. Rapidly saying affirmations and desires without really thinking about them and getting emotionally involved rarely yields results. One must come from a place in which one believes the desire has already happened. The best way to do this is to use emotion in expressing one’s desires to the universe.

I believe that my best results at manifesting come about when I take time to really feel the new situation and to be grateful for the fact that it has already happened. It is necessary to state the desire but then sit with it quietly for a while and picture one’s life once the desires have been satisfied. If you are wishing to bring wealth into your life, it helps to envision your life of abundance and to plan how you will handle that abundance and what you will do with that wealth. Have a feeling of thankfulness and try to emotionally be in the situation of having great abundance. Create in your mind the feeling of gratitude and joy that you will feel when it comes about.

I have been working on this for a couple of years now and have been able to manifest a significant increase in my business. This has not made me wealthy yet but it has put me in a much better position. Because it has been reinforced by a continually growing business, I do not worry about it anymore. This feeling of having an abundant business continues to carry over and bring more success. Worrying only keeps abundance at bay. I am still far from my goal, but making progress. This shows that it sometimes takes a while for abundance issues to improve, but does show that steady progress can be made.


E-Squared Experiment #4

I would like to share the next of the experiments listed in the best-selling book E-Squared by Pam Grout.  This is called the “Abracadabra Principle” and is easily the most interesting of the experiments I conducted to date. The principle is that whatever you focus on expands. The question is can we draw things into our life simply by thinking about them?  Participants were asked to focus on a particular item that they wanted and request the universe to bring it to them. The idea is to draw things out of thin air.


Although the other experiments were successful, I perhaps had some doubt of my ability to draw from the Field of Potentiality. The results of this experiment were, for me, actually comical. I decided on a bottle of champagne. I made this choice so that it would be something that I would believe that I could get rather than thinking about something so large and improbable that my belief system would not draw it to me. Like the others, this experiment was to last for 48 hours, beginning on October 19 at around 5:30 PM and ending on October 21 at around 5:30 PM.


I did not get my bottle of champagne as a gift, as I had envisioned. However, in the space of four days, I had three occasions occur which would have caused me to go out and buy a bottle of champagne and celebrate. I was getting reasons to celebrate but not the actual bottle of champagne itself!  I then started thinking that perhaps I should just go out and buy the champagne because I was presented with such wonderful reasons to celebrate. The first incident happened on October 21, when three elephants from the Toronto zoo were finally taken to a sanctuary in California after a 2 1/2 year battle. This was something I had been following very closely and it seemed like a miracle that they were released to the sanctuary and made a safe trip across the country by truck. The next day, on October 22, I received word that a magazine article I had written had made it in a Reiki magazine in the United Kingdom. Two days after that, on October 24, a good friend of mine got a book deal with a royalty publisher after writing two books with a self-publishing company.


Needless to say, I was bemused by this turn of events. However, I was shown just how strong the Field of Potentiality is and how literally it takes requests. A day or two after my friend got the book deal, I was sitting in front of my computer and I said to the universe “I want to be shown clearly that I can draw this (the bottle of champagne) into my life and what form it will take. Almost instantly, my computer screen flashed a picture of a couple on a tropical beach with an iced bottle of champagne between them and each of them drinking a glass of it. The book says that sometimes things do not come literally but may come in the form of pictures. Needless to say, I got a good laugh out of that one.

E-Squared Experiment #3

This is the fourth post regarding the experiments listed in the best-selling book E-Squared (Hay House, 2013) by Pam Grout. I will describe the results I achieved with Experiment #3. Ms. Grout refers to this as the Alby Einstein principle, The theory is that one is a field of energy in an even bigger field of energy. The hypothesis is that if one is energy, one can direct that energy. Many of the readers may have heard of using dowsing rods.

These are curved pieces of metal, with one held in each hand by the handle, while the horizontal rods point in specific directions in response to certain questions. For this experiment, Ms. Grout asks the participant to cut two metal clothes hangers into a straight line, then bend one end of each for the handles. She then directs participants to insert a straw over each handle so they can turn more easily. The theory is that these rods can detect positive or negative feelings in one’s field of energy.

Participants are directed to think of something that has made them unhappy. This will make the rods reach inward and cross each other as they detect the negative energy in the field of the user. For positive thoughts, the rods will move outward and to the right. This worked perfectly for me as the rods seemed to take on a life of their own.  The reading of what was positive and what was negative in my field of energy was completely accurate. I was standing still while doing this and not making the rods move in any way. This is a great tool to discern the nature of your emotions.

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.

E-Squared- Accessing the Field of Potentiality

In the last blog post, I discussed the general principles of accessing the Field of Potentiality as discussed in the best-selling book E Squared, by Pam Grout. She lays out a series of nine experiments which the readers can undertake in order to verify the existence of this field and also the fact that we are in control of what this field brings to us. This is obviously a very exciting concept — the fact that we can control what happens to us and that we can draw what we need from this field. This is something that I have always believed in on an intellectual level as well as a physical level. There have been numerous instances in my life where the universe has brought me what I have asked for. However, I had never before done this on a regular basis in my daily life moment-by-moment. It seemed as if I was vacillating between accepting what the universe brought me and wondering if this is so.


Having nine specific experiments certainly seems to be a way to truly bring this concept into conscious thinking on a daily basis. Ms. Grout refers to the first experiment as The Dude Abides Principle. The theory behind this is that there is an invisible energy field of infinite possibilities and that it is ours for the asking. The question here is does the Field of Potentiality exist? Readers are instructed to tell the universe that it has 48 hours to make its presence known. We were told to ask the universe for a very clear sign, something that cannot be written off as coincidence. Readers were also told that it may be something very small but it has to be recognizable.


Mine was indeed small but it was something that had never happened before. I place orders to Amazon frequently for such items as books and health and beauty aids. I’ve been doing this for several years. In some instances, I will place an order for two different items less than five minutes apart. In every single case, and I am talking probably at least 100 orders, each one will arrive separately regardless of how little time passed between my order for the first item and my order for the second item. I recall thinking that this seems such a waste of packing materials and that Amazon should ship some items together. However, this had never happened before. The deadline that I set was the 48 hours between October 4 at approximately 6 PM and October 6 at the same time.


I had ordered a book and bottle of vitamins from Amazon about 24 hours apart. Lo and behold, on October 5, I received both items in the same package. When I opened it, I was not thinking about the E-Squared experiment. I recall that my first reaction was, “Now that’s really odd.” It struck my consciousness immediately as being something I would never have expected. Then it occurred to me that this was the answer to experiment number one. Although this may seem like a small yield, the fact that this was unprecedented and that it struck me as being something that was impossible convinced me this was indeed the answer I had been seeking. I am now off to a very good start knowing that the universe answers our request in every case. In a couple of days I will report on experiment number two.
