I just started reading E squared by Pam Grout. I had seen it on some recommended book list and needed to buy something extra on Amazon to hit free shipping, so I thought, why not?! I am not too far in but, already, I can say it seems directed to those people (skeptics) who do not believe in some type of higher power or those that believe but constantly question. Note that higher power doesn't have to mean God, but it can. It can also mean Light, Divine force, Angels, prana...whatever you refer to as the invisible force that links everyone and everything together. It's that Universal energy that allows the Law of Attraction to keep attracting and the use of positive affirmations to keep affirming! Since I am not a skeptic of a greater force, I figure the book should be an easier read for me!
For the scientific mind, the book offers a series of experiments to provide the experimentor with proof that a greater invisible force does exist and does want you to have what you want and need.
I thought it would be interesting to focus today's yoga theme around this experiment and invite any of you to join in! You can leave comments on this page when you are done so we can all compare notes.
Very simply, all you need to do is agree to open your mind for 48 hours, setting your doubting mind aside and ask for a sign or blessing verifying that this force does exist. There are a couple of guidelines to follow.
First- Declare when the 48 hours starts by writing the date and time down on a piece of paper and saying "Now" aloud.
Second- Set your intention. We set intentions before a yoga practice. Reiki is based on intention. You need to state your intention. Try something like, " It is my intention to open my mind for the next 48 hours to receiving some type of sign or blessing or gift from Spirit to prove to me that this force does exist." Ask for the Universe's force to make itself known to you.
I want to give you some of the results listed in the book so you aren't so sidetracked looking for the huge bolt of lightning that you miss the small rumble of thunder.
-One woman received an unexpected dollar an hour raise and a family member called to offer unexpected help
-One woman found a friend had left a surprise gift on her car window
-One woman responded a little boy had sat next to her at the park and shared a smile
I caution the skeptics that if you put out questioning thoughts about this experiment during your 48 hour period, doubting thoughts, the Law of Attraction is going to kick in and the Universe will focus on your doubts rather than your original intention. I would suggest, if doubt creeps in, that you restate your intention asking for a sign, gift or blessing from the Universe to prove its existence to you.
I also forewarn you to look for the small blessings; don't miss them! A call from an old friend, a front parking space, a white feather....your sign may only mean something to you. Keep stating your intention and broaden your attention.
