The E-Squared/Law of Attraction Experiment 1 – Part B
Part 1A explains that on Friday night I decided to embark on the 9 experiments in Pat Grout’s book E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality.
The first of those 48 hour experiments was to write down an intention to receive a blessing or gift within 48 hours with a clear sign that you can’t write it off as just a coincidence.
So here’s what happened:
10pm Friday night – the start of the experiment with my intention written on a white board in my living room.
Saturday – Driving along a main road, I smiled at the sight of a giant bubble floating towards my car and looked to see a man in his yard blowing bubbles. Writing part 1A of this blog and mentioning the bubbles resulted in another blogger finding and appreciating my blog after searching for “bubbles”. Turns out she’s a creative girl who is working on her second novel. Meanwhile, “bubbles” is also part of the name a self taught photographer I know uses for her business. Now, writing and photography are huge interests of mine. I also have a container of bubble wands (? If that’s the right word – he he) sitting on my kitchen table and as I write this it’s just occurred to me that someone once gave Oprah Winfrey one as a present and left it in her office and she didn’t notice it for days even though it had been there the whole time. An example of why we all need to keep our eyes and ears open to notice all the good that is around us and not miss what is right in front of us if ever I heard one!
Sunday – I wake up to find the next blogger to find and appreciate my blog is a fellow Toastmaster. Toastmasters has been a God send to me in terms of building my confidence and giving new things a go. I have no doubt it helped me stick up for myself and go ahead with moving to a small country town almost 5 years ago for a change of career, when most people around me at the time said I shouldn’t do it. I may be living in the city again, but I still say without question that it was the first of my “best decisions ever.”
I have also been a fan of Pastor Rick Warren’s book, “The Purpose Driven Life” ever since it was featured on Oprah. But today was the first time I listened to any of his sermons. But his latest on his website today is everything I already knew to be true about how we should treat other people and what we most need to focus on to be happy. Not to mention that one could also argue that he was talking about the Strengths Approach, which is mentioned a lot in my social work degree, although of course he framed it in a biblical context.
Next, someone on Facebook totally misunderstood something I said, temporarily making me question my ability to write clearly. Fast forward a couple of hours and the same writer who found my blog yesterday gave me more positive feedback and I remembered what Louise Hay says at the start of her You Can Heal Your Life movie. That she has lots of speakers in the movie because everyone has a different way of expressing the same thing and that we might hear one speaker and think they make no sense, then hear another speaker say the same thing using different words and think it was pure genius. So if Louise Hay can sell that many books and run her own hugely successful publishing company and still admit that not everyone will understand the same person no matter how great a writer or speaker they are, then it goes without saying that everyone with writing or public speaking aspirations should just keep on writing and not worry about those people who don’t understand their message. The main thing is that someone will understand… and you might be just the right person to make something crystal clear to that “someone” who does understand.
So, was experiment one a success? Yes and no depending on how you look at it. Do I know beyond all doubt that it was the law of attraction or “field of potentiality” as Pam Grout calls it, at work because I declared my intention on Friday night to receive a blessing within 48 hours? Not really. Maybe trying to put myself in the frame of mind to expect a blessing, just made me take more notice of all the good things about this weekend that could be interpreted as blessings. And yet, what could be a bigger blessing than a weekend full of small things that collectively reminded me of everything that is important to me, everything I know in my heart to be true and reminded me to keep writing? I feel very blessed indeed :-).
Onto 48 hour experiment number 2 tomorrow…
