Pam Grout: 3 Ways to Kick Manifesting Skills into Gear

After Michelle shared her manifesting success from Pam Grout’s E-Squared book, Pam generously accepted my request to share her LOA wit here at the blog.

Enjoy this delightful and inspiring guest post from Pam:

I have four main intentions: peace of mind, surety of purpose, clear, unmistakable guidance and unceasing joy. I used to keep that last intention to myself. People tended to think it was foolhardy and not at all possible.

“What?” they’d mock. “How can anybody be joyful 24/7?”
What I now know is that any other goal is simply irresponsible.
Our only function here on Planet Earth is to having a rollicking good time. I mean, we are meant to laugh and have fun and enjoy ourselves at every moment. And I refuse to feel guilty for proclaiming that.
Recently, I’ve been getting emails from people wanting more tips on how to manifest, how to kick their natural, create-their-dreams skills into high gear.
So, here are the three best techniques I can offer for letting go and letting your every intention happen:

1. Focus on the end result
Period. Do not give any air-time in your thoughts–and especially your feelings–to the way it appears now. What appears now is history. It only appears that way because you think about it. You don’t even need to worry about how you’re going to get to where you want to be. In fact, one of our biggest stumbling blocks is obsessing about the process for getting to your goal. It is irrelevant. Just keep focusing on where you want to be. Tune in to that reality just like you tune into your favorite radio station. Ignore the other channels. Ignore what appears so real now. Again, it’s only “real” until you get clear focus on where you want to be.

2. Live by Bobby McFerrin’s mantra: “Don’t worry. Be happy.” 

The more joy you can have in your life, the wider the door opens for life’s largesse to flow in. The only person who can erect walls that keep it away is you. If you’re in a state of perpetual joy (again, this is your natural, God-given state), all the security forces in the U.S. Army can’t keep it away.

3. Throw this phrase overboard: “It’s hard.”

Do you know how often I hear this from people, even people who know good and well how to manifest? I even hear myself saying it sometimes. But the moment I catch myself, I turn it around immediately and remember that it’s my choice. Life can be hard, complicated and difficult to manage. Or it can be a pleasure trip down easy street. Whatever it is you want to accomplish, affirm often that it’s easy to get there. The only reason life is anything but a piece of cake is our focus on hardship.

  • Lyly says:

    love Pam’s book! the hanger turned into wire experiment gave me the creeps but also became a major turning point for me because I got to see with my own eyes the physical effect of negative thinking…
    Thank you!!!

  • Lois says:

    I just got Pam’s book the other day and am loving it. I agree with Ashley – focus on the qualities Kelly.

  • Ashey says:

    Little correction – *qualities you choose
    Have a great day!

  • Ashey says:

    Thanks so much for this post! I loved Pam’s book it was really exciting and fun to read 🙂
    Kelly, Focus on the qualities you would like in a partner,(Not a specific person, just specific qualities). Once you start to focus on the qualities choose, you will know if this is the right person for you. I hope this helps 🙂

  • Kelly says:

    1. Focus on the end result. Here is a question: what if you are in a relationship and you kinda think you want it long-term but it is too soon to know (or there are red flags you are struggling with). Can you do manifesting of wanting a long-term partnership while in relationship without focusing on that person (i.e. leaving the Universe to guide the relationship forward if it was meant to be or gently having it end with good things in store if not)? Thoughts?

  • Elizabeth says:

    I am really enjoying Pam’s book. You can feel the fun and joy in it!

  • Deborah says:

    @ Michelle Dobbins: I know what you mean! Reading Pam’s book, I’m realizing that *I worry all the time.* It’s like I’m addicted to it. I’m seeing that there’s something about that that feels powerful to me. Even though it’s the very thing that’s blocking me!
    WTH?! It makes no sense, and yet it’s what I’m doing. It’s the mental rut that I need to break free of.

  • robinvk says:

    I just started reading E squared, love your writing style!

  • Kathy says:

    Had loads of fun reading your book Pam! Thanks!

  • Pam, I love this post! I find that the more I focus on being joyful the more I have to be joyful about. I have found that there’s also part me of be that can enjoy being angry or sad. All is life is worth enjoying and experiencing.

  • Deborah says:

    LATER: Downloaded Pam’s book onto Kindle. *I AM RIVETED.* This is rocking my world. Thank you thank you thank you.
    And thank you for selling it for $1.99.

  • Deborah says:

    Love this! And much-needed today. Thank you both. 😉
    Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes (which no longer appear on Facebook, for some reason!):
    “It’s irresponsible to be pessimistic in a field of infinite possibilities.”
