Reading E2 by Pam Grout & What My Flowers Have Taught Me

by Ellen DuBois on 08/22/13

I'm one of those people who absorbs spiritual enlightenment and self awareness/help books like a sponge. Typically, I take bits and pieces of every book I either read or listen to and keep what resonates with me. I even wrote one to help women who have miscarried, hoping they'd do the same.

Right now I'm reading E2 by Pam Grout and it's not only entertaining, (love her quips and down-to-earth writing style), it's real and let me tell you, some of the things that have happened simply by redirecting/changing my thoughts/energy are nothing short of amazing! And, I GET why they are.

Okay. I'm probably not making much sense so I want to SHOW you. I like to see things because I'm a visual kind of person. (I'd rather look at a picture of how to assemble something over reading the actual instructions. Not always a good move, by the way...)

Here is a picture of my flowers. There are three flower boxes, a cement pot with two plants in it and next to it, a baby rose bush:





Okay. Now that you've seen them, let me tell you what I did based on an experiment in Pam Grout's book: I sent my flowers love every time I watered them, walked by them, or simply was near them. I thought it, said it, whatever. One of the Dahlias was a gonner, (the one closest to the left of the picture). There wasn't a bud to be found. It was a wilted, sad little pile of dead leaves. After about three days of setting the intention of sending love to my plants and doing it, I was out there with my watering can early in the morning and...there it was. A bud! Wow! So, I gingerly picked away the 'dead stuff' and continued sending my flowers loving, positive thoughts.

That kind of thing comes easily to me because, well, it's just how I'm wired. But, I tend to think we're all 'wired' that way- we can all tap into God, energy, the Source. Some of us just don't know it.

So, about my flowers. (I digress...) They look amazing and are flourishing! Because of what? Because I am sending them nothing but positive thoughts and love. That's it. No Miracle Gro. No special formula from a greenhouse. Nothing more than my own positive, loving thoughts which consist of real, live, bouncing-around energy that has a direct impact on everything.

There you have it. One example of what my thoughts can do, and so can yours.

A big thank you to Pam Grout for writing this amazing book! E2!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

This is a wonderful CD. It is by Al and Marlane DuBois, (my parents). If you love piano music, both original pieces and those you already know and love, you will enjoy "It's About Piano, It's About Time! . Listen to the samples. This makes a great gift for anyone who loves quality, beautiful piano music. Perfect for adding ambiance to dinner parties and more. Some of the pieces are perfect for meditation, too.
