E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

Get ready to have your mind changed and your highest hopes strengthened.

Pam Grout has the nerve to put her claims to the test with nine, free experiments anyone can try - if they dare.


Can Pam Grout Prove She's Right About the Law of Attraction?

E-Squared, An Adventure In Testing Belief

Here's a terrific book that sticks its neck out and takes an open gamble with its author's credibility.

Pam Grout gives us nine simple experiments that either prove or disprove her claim that we create the conditions in which we live our lives.

Each of the nine experiments Grout suggests in E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality is prefaced with a detailed explanation of how and why it might work along with observations from others, expert and otherwise.

Then, she asks you to take a test to see if she's right.

A nice feature of this book, front to back, is that the author has a breezy, sometimes funny style that never sacrifices smarts for a good line. She is especially adept at explaining complex physical theories in ways that make them easy to understand.

E-Squared is sprinkled with quotes throughout that show an appreciation for words well-turned. Clearly, Pam Grout understands what it takes to say something profound with dazzling simplicity.

This book is beautifully written and designed.

The Contents: Nine Experiments About How To Live Effectively

Grout doesn't waste any time with counting calories to lose weight or in prayers for happiness and well-being.

E-Squared's mission is to show us that it's all in our heads, our thoughts and intentions, which she characterizes as an endless series of prayers, as powerful as they are inconsistent. We want something, but we're not clear about it.

At the same time, we think we either can't or won't get what we want. All these reach an ultimate energy source that responds instantly and exactly according the our mixed thoughts.

Often, one thought - a wish for abundance, for instance - is nullified by another about not having it. Grout says we should stay laser focused on what we want and expect to get it, no ifs, buts or maybes. And she gives us experiments to prove it.

Here are two of my experiments.

E-Squared Experiment #1

Starting with something simple, Grout asks us to think of an object we want to see in specific time frame. The experiment is designed to show that what she calls "the FP" or you may call "God" - it doesn't matter - will deliver as asked. I followed her suggestion by asking to be shown green cars. How many of them are there, anyway?

I never left the house that evening or watched a show that had green cars, but starting the next morning, I saw 16 green cars in roughly 8 hours. What was more interesting to me was that about half, including the first two, were the city's new "green cabs," a Bloomberg administration initiative that I didn't know had started. By contrast, in the week since, I've seen only two more green cabs.

The next day, I asked for yellow butterflies, a tough call in late September in New York. When I settled down to edit some product pages that day, guess what I randomly chose? A photograph from Central Park with a woman posing as a giant yellow butterfly.

E-Squared Experiment #2

Before I bought Pam Grout's exciting book, I read a sample chapter offered by Hay House. Not only was I thrilled with her writing style, punchy, fun and smart, but the chapter offered a simple experiment to try before buying the book. That, I thought, is confidence, taking real risks with book sales.

What I was told to ask the FP to do was to show me that It was present and willing to help. I asked for any sign that would demonstrate a presence eager to step in and give me something completely unexpected.

The next day, I had my best ever day as a writer online. (The next best day isn't close.) It was startling from several angles, and I did nothing special, except ask.

Oh, I almost forgot, but everywhere my wife and I went that day - to lunch, a movie, Trader Joe's and hauling typically huge horde of groceries - every subway we needed was pulling into the station as soon as we got to the platform, a rare set of events for New York.

And What Else...?

Pam Grout's E-Squared has other experiments of greater seriousness and consequence. I'll leave those for you to try for yourself after you buy the book. You can see for yourself better than I can ever tell you. My results in the other experiments were mostly successful and one, too personal to recall in detail, impressively so.

Try this book. You won't be disappointed.

Conclusion: Recommended Highly

This book is one of a kind and has the potential to be life-changing for you.

It takes guts to put out theories that many people would consider crazy, but to, then, offer clearcut experiments that put her ideas on the line for proof is something else again. No New Age writer I know has ever gone that far.

Pam Grout has a good reason - she knows what she's talking about. Buy this book. Try the experiments yourself. It will change you.

      "...its all in our heads, our thoughts and intentions...stay laser focused on what we want and expect to get it." This is a lesson I learned from a wonderful creativity coach, and despite my initial skepticism I have become a profound believer. I don't think of it as "caused by any mystical force or being," as John described it below, but that's probably just a matter of semantics, since I do believe it has everything to do with the universal creative wellspring/life force within all of us and the interwoven energy web that we call life. I agree that the premise is really powerful, Dave. I don't see this as "woo woo" mysticism, rather as an acknowledgment that we experience life based on our perceptions, expectations, and cultivated beliefs, whether conscious or subconscious. That's an empowering idea because it means we can choose to create fundamental change in our lives. Sounds like a great book; thanks for sharing it.

      @John Dyhouse: It can't hurt to try, John. As I pointed out, Pam challenges you to test her hypotheses. That's rare enough, but she's also an entertaining writer while she's at it.

      I must admit to being very sceptical. Take the green cars, the easiest explanantion is that you were more tuned to that colour and so saw (noticed) more than you would normally. I see this in all sorts of things, actively thinking about things causes them to be noticed.It is not caused by any mystical force or being!I might consider reading it, if it is as entertaining as you suggest however

      I like this book a lot. When i tried the "yellow butterfly" experiment, however, I didn't realize it was the wrong season for them... but did end up finding a yellow butterfly garden decoration. Have you read her book "Jumpstart Your Metabolism?" Also very interesting.

      I'm glad that what is called "Law of Attraction" worked for you as it did for me, Dave. I thought you didn't believe in it for all you've written about the Hickses scam.Fortunately I had proof that it does work way before I knew about this book, but I think it's way more effective for attracting happy moments than luxurious cars and goodies (although it works for that too!), also, living specific moments you visualized before is the best proof anyone can get.I think that when people is "pretending" to be happy just for getting a brand new BMW, they're putting the car in the first place, when all this is about is just being happy and then get good things happen to you (doesn't matter if it's a car or ten dollars you've found in the street, as long as you are really happy, it's not that important). That's why some people fail, they try to use it the inverse way!.Greetings and sorry for my English!

      @Brite-Ideas: Great to hear, Barbara. I usually find books like this fawning and shallow, to a lesser or greater extent. I found Pat Grout quite the opposite, competent, confident and often funny.

      I'm so intrigued!!! The Secret is a favorite of mine, but it takes daily, hourly practice to retrain your thought patterns. This book review (and I watched a very interesting radio interview found above also) has convinced me to try these experiments for myself. Thanks Dave! (Also, LOVE the background pic here.) :)

      @Pam Irie: Good luck with it, Pam.That picture is one I took in Central Park, years ago. I like it, but I've had a hard time finding places to use it. I think it really fits here.Thanks.

      @Brite-Ideas: The results are interesting to watch. In my experience, the elements involved extend way beyond the limited experiments here. You can go a lot farther than you think.Thanks.

      Many years ago I took a weekend personal development course and it had exercises similar this - I find myself doing this all the time - I recently selected a set of numbers to 'show themselves' in various daily activities and events, and yep, the darned numbers end up in front of me - I like to think of it as 'the self fulfilling prophecy on steroids"
