Oneness - We Are All ConnectedExperiment #8, the 101 Dalmatians Principle, is about how we really are all connected. That every particle in the universe is in instantaneous communication with every other particle. Wow! I happened to stumble upon the movie Cloud Atlas this past weekend (coincidence? Or synchronicity?), which addresses this principle in beautiful movie-making splendor. According to this principle, every thought we have alters the entire universe forever. Imagine that! The other big idea is: Your thoughts about other people change YOU. How you see others is how you will see yourself. This makes forgiveness and kindness and compassion make sense at the level of the universe. It’s not about doing the “right” thing according to a rulebook or moral code. It’s about observing and choosing what you create in your own reality each time you think a thought about someone else. Continue reading

“Retraining the mind is much like potty-training a puppy. You need to keep taking it outside and showing it the beauty, the majesty, the truth.” – Pam Grout, author of "E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality" (New York Times bestseller)I devoured this book in one sitting, because I couldn’t wait to see what all nine experiments would involve. In one entertaining, short book that is easy to read, Pam Grout touches on all the major spiritual principles and invites us to be scientists in our own lives. She's read all the major self-help gurus, taken their workshops, gone to the conferences. And she's lived their lessons in her own way. She captures what she's learned with humor, simplicity, and clarity so that anyone can begin to explore how our thoughts create our own reality. Don’t take her (or my) word for it, do the experiments yourself. Be willing to prove yourself wrong, and be open to whatever shows up for you. Let’s start "potty-training our puppy" minds together, share stories of our own experiments, and bring greater awareness of the magic available to us in our everyday lives. Connect more deeply with what you truly want, and learn principles and techniques for inviting it to show up in your life, starting right now.
Format:Come to the first session ready to discuss the Introduction, Preliminaries, and Experiment #1 chapters. If you’ve already done Experiment #1, great! We’d love to hear your results. At each meeting, we will begin by sharing our “Lab Results Report” from the previous week’s experiment. We will then discuss the coming week’s principle and set up our new experiment for the week. Come with a playful attitude and genuine curiosity about how your thoughts can create your reality.
