1. What was your prime motivation and inspiration in creating "E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality"?
After years of reading books like this, I came to realize that unless you actually use the principles, they’re basically little more than entertainment. So instead of proposing one more theory on how our thoughts create our reality, I wanted to present real-time proof.
By setting them up 9 easy and fun experiments, I allow readers to see with their own eyes how powerful their consciousness really is.
2. Could you tell us a bit about the nine 48 1 hour experiments in the book and what the point of them consist of?
Each of the nine experiments presents an important spiritual principle and an actual experiment to prove or disprove its validity. I even include lab reports.
3. What would you recommend for someone who has gone through a lot in life or may have just lost a loved one or has a disease like cancer who feels stuck in a rut? What would you say to them that might help elevate them?
Focus not on the disease or the rut or the loss. Focus on the Truth of pure health, infinite possibilities and the fact that we are all connected and can never really lose anyone.
4. Why exactly did you choose the symbols of E Squared to represent your book?
The title is a take-off on Einstein’s theory of relativity: E=MC2. The book is all about energy and how we can either squander it mindlessly or use it to our advantage.
5. Could you tell us a little about the law of attraction and how it applies to your book and our lives?
Whatever we focus upon in life expands. This is an unalterable truth. But instead of focusing on what we want out of life, we exhaust ourselves thinking of what’s wrong. It’s a bad habit that sorely needs to be changed. Once we begin aligning with the Truth of the world’s love and largesse, blessings begin pouring in.
6. Why do you think the world in some places is so horror ridden like in Syria with the chemical weapons and in America with the poor and homeless who are often neglected. I mean in some cities its illegal to feed the homeless. Why this negativity in our world and what can we do to change it with your principles?
Negativity is nothing but a bad habit. And the reason we continue to have horrors and problems is because we continue to fixate upon them. I prefer to focus on love and the fact that these problems are unnecessary. It’s not meant to dismiss the apparent problems in our world. It’s to put our faith in a higher, bigger, more loving reality
7. How does disbelief and our own negative attitudes stand in our way and what can we do to change that?
The dominant paradigm is one of lack, limits and problems. It only appears to be true, because that’s what we focus upon. We must shine our spotlights on all the good that is going on in the world. Negativity is just so yesterday. It’s an old school paradigm that I am determined to change.
8. I have been single since last year and seems like my luck hasn't been so great with the ladies as of late and the only way around here in country world where I live in Florida seems to be meeting ladies online through personals. What would you recommend for someone like me who is looking for a companion? What principles of yours might help the lovelorn?
First of all, it’s important to tell a different story. I have a friend who believes getting dates is a piece of cake. Consequently, she has more dates than she knows what to do with. If you believe that it’s hard or that your luck hasn’t been great, guess what? That’s what you’ll continue to manifest. It’s so important to be open to new possibilities and not to cut off infinite possibilities by stating and believing things that don’t have to be true.
9. What are you up to next book wise and projects wise and any links or departing words you'd like to share with us as we depart? Thanks for this interview!
I’ve got lots going on. I’m continuing full-steam ahead with my travel writing. I’m working on a follow-up book to E-Squared. Yes, it’s called E-Cubed. I’m also developing a TV series about six characters in an ecovillage called Milagro Springs. I jokingly refer to it as “Sex and the Country.”
Pam Grout is a hopeless romantic who still believes the world is a beautiful place, that people are noble and that anything is possible.
For a living (and she always wonders why people think that's such an important question), she writes books and articles for such magazines as People, Cooking Light and Travel & Leisure. She also enjoys writing bedtime stories for her daughter, but that's more about making a life than a living. She's keenly aware there's a huge difference.
In making a life, she has traveled to all the world's continents, learned 59 ways to make a fort out of sofa cushions, perfected a mean tennis forehand and volunteered at a women's prison and free health clinic.
She lives in Lawrence, Kansas with her daughter, Tasman. Check out her sometimes updated website at www.pamgrout.com
