Don’t face reality. Create reality!
E-Squared could best be described as a lab manual with simple experiments to prove once and for all that reality is malleable, that consciousness trumps matter, and that you shape your life with your mind. Rather than take it on faith, you are invited to conduct nine 48-hour experiments to prove there really is a positive, loving, totally hip force in the universe. Yes, you read that right. It says prove.
The experiments, each of which can be conducted with absolutely no money and very little time expenditure, demonstrate that spiritual principles are as dependable as gravity, as consistent as Newton’s laws of motion. For years, you’ve been hoping and praying that spiritual principles are true. Now, you can know.
E-Squared proves the following:
1. There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilities.
2. You impact the field and draw from it according to your beliefs and expectations.
3. You, too, are a field of energy.
4. Whatever you focus on expands.
5. Your connection to the field provides accurate and unlimited guidance.
6. Your thoughts and consciousness impact matter.
7. Your thoughts and consciousness provide the scaffolding for your physical body.
8. You are connected to everything and everyone else in the universe.
9. The universe is limitless, abundant, and strangely accommodating.

Energy Experiments Really Work
Several weeks later, I spontaneously found myself browsing the Hay House site and came up on their blogger community. That, I now realize, was miracle #1. This community allows bloggers to receive copies of certain books for free in exchange for a review posted to the blogger’s website. I signed up for the program and received the book just a few days later.
If you’re into spirituality, the power of intention, quantum physics, or anything along those lines, you would love this book. It’s absolutely perfect for the person who has done extended reading on the topics (me!) but can’t manage to move beyond the feeling of being stuck. Sure you may come up on a little proof of the Universe working in your favor now and then, but it’s soon forgotten and sucked into the void of feeling like you have no power over your life.
This book provided me with the necessary guidance I needed to truly know that my thoughts have power through 9 cut and dry exercises. The best part is, Ms. Pam Grout is writes in a language that is accessible, humorous and the very opposite of boring. The lessons are concise, to the point, and best of all – offer NO ROOM FOR QUESTIONING. At the end of each experiment you KNOW that God heard your plea.
When it all boils down to it, what these experiments aim to do is solidify our faith. You either believe or you don’t. You can’t be wishy washy and that’s where most of us get stuck. You also can’t send mixed signals… Like, “I really want to lose weight, but I also really want to have 10 pieces of chocolate cake today.” You have to be honest with yourself about what you really want. That’s the other place where we get stuck. We don’t truly know what we want.
Through practicing the experiments in this book, you can begin to hone in on what it is you’re truly asking for. As Grout states, begin with simple things first. Some things take longer than others. Don’t expect to become a millionaire over night. Also, keep your eyes and intuition open. You have to recognize that your question and desires have been answered. Sometimes the answers don’t come the way you wanted, or expected. Most important of all though, is don’t waiver in your belief. Most spiritual traditions teach this critical element and now it’s backed up by science. The observer creates and changes the observed. It’s true.
Finally, just to prove to you that I’m not just writing this for naught, I will share two stories about thoughts/things I manifested while going through the experiments in this book. The first one comes in the form of a Needak rebounder (a mini trampoline). I’ve wanted one for several years, and have had a cheap one in the past, that only lasted me about two months. I had only been reading E-Squared for a couple of hours when suddenly the word “rebounder” popped into my mind. A few minutes later I was on Craigslist where, lo and behold, someone was selling two Needak rebounders for half of their original price. I have NEVER seen a Needak on Craigslist in all the years I’ve been looking for one.
I now own the rebounder. And, just to add to the delight of the story, it’s worth noting that the person I bought it from – the complete and total Craigslist stranger – was also very much into miracles, Wayne Dyer and other things along this course. She even had the words, “I am entitled to miracles” written on her forearm. There’s no denying God in this equation.
The second example is a little more subtle. I happened to drop my camera right on it’s lens in the middle of my son’s birthday party. I had experienced trouble with the lens before and tried everything I could to fix it. I couldn’t. I was sure that this was it for my poor little camera, which I actually use for one of my jobs. Drat again! A little later in the day, one of the chapters was guiding me to manifest something specific, immediately my mind told me what I wanted, “a camera!”
A few minutes later I found myself on YouTube looking up instructions on how to fix my camera. Even though I had already given up on it. I pretty much thought I was about to take it apart and really ruin it. Instead I came up on a simple tutorial that said to slap the camera on your palm and gently guide the lens out. Can you believe this worked? Suddenly the lens that was absolutely stuck and would not move a millimeter was working just fine. I had a camera again. Sure, it wasn’t a new camera, but I gave the Universe 48 hours to give me a camera and I had one within 30 minutes. I accepted it with gratitude.
Please don’t think that the only thing you can manifest are material objects. These examples are important because we like to be able to see things physically. But we can also use this book to ask for guidance and to help manifest peace and love in our hearts – that’s where the real power lies. Like I said before, it’s really about cultivating and maintaining faith. So yeah, read this book. I got it for free, but if I knew then what I know now, I would have gladly paid for it. Thanks Pam Grout and thank you Hay House!
Loved the experiments
Pam Grout is my new favorite author. I enjoyed reading this book so much that I would love to read and know more from her. E Squared is easy to read, fun, all the ideas are scientifically supported, credible and something that sets this book apart from the others is that Pam gives us experiments to prove that our thoughts really do create our reality. I tried the experiments, and I was blown away by most results I had; this is my experience:
Experiment #1 The Dude Abides Principle: I got a ticket to see Eckhat Tolle and Deepak Chopra at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. How cool is that!!
Experiment #2 The Volkswagen Jetta: I didn’t see any sunset-beige cars, but I saw lots of yellow butterflies while watching Baby Einstein with my kids.
Experiment #3 The Alby Einstein: I got rid of all my wire hangers in my last Spring Cleaning, so I couldn’t do this experiment.
Experiment #4 The Abracadabra: What I learned from this experiment is that you have to be specific when asking for something to manifest. I focused on getting $ 5,000 but I didn’t specify if I wanted them in cash of check, so what I got was a spam e-mail with a picture of lots of bills a huge sign ” Win $ 5,000″ in the bottom of the e-mail.
Experiment #5 The Dear Abby: I asked God and my Angels for guidance on how to make my business more succesful, and what I got at the next morning was a bunch of creative ideas, and something made me yell YES!!
Experiment #6 The Super Hero: Haven’t started this experiment yet.
Experiment #7 The Jenny Craig: I lost 1 pound by just thinking every zip of water would clean my organism.
Experiment #8 The 101 Dalmatians: The friend I was thinking about and sending lots of blessings and happiness, rarely posts comments in Facebook, however at the second day of my experiment, she posted a picture of her beautiful growing vegetable garden and expressed how happy she was about it. That same night I was watching a movie and it turned out it was filmed in Verona,Italy; the city this friend is from.
Experiment #9 The Fish and Loaves: My favorite gesture of gratitude was a little happy dance a homeless man did when I gave him a dollar bill in my way to work.
E-squared. Read it…Reality is waiting!
You know those movies, or concerts, that are just so fab that time disappears and it seems like they only last for ten minutes and you just wish they would never stop?
Well this was the book version of that. If I have one criticism it’s that it is not long enough.
‘E-squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality’
Pam Grout: [...]
What’s it about?
In a nutshell…..the law of attraction baby! And yes, I KNOW we have heard so much about this recently, and there are SO many books on the topic that all started to get popular due to that infamous little title The Secret. But if the law of attraction is such an easy concept to master, wouldn’t we would all be manifesting millions and have lives of our dreams? well I don’t know about you, but for the majority of people, this just isn’t happening.
Well, for a start, it’s because deep down inside, we really don’t believe that it’s possible. And this disbelief is preventing what we say we want from forming a place in reality. We put out messages that we want, say, a pony, but then at the same time we are thinking that it’s probably not going to happen. And thus the net result is NOTHING.
Pam Grout takes this disbelief and helps you shove it to the side for enough time to show you that the law of attraction works. Like, seriously. And in a pretty neat way too. She has a way of taking complicated concepts and explaining them in a humorous, totally easy to understand manner. Works for me, especially with the attention-span of a child with ADD…
The key to the success of this book are that there are actual real-life experiments to do, to not only get some of the stuff you really want, but to prove to YOURSELF that this whole thoughts becoming reality stuff works. Of course, I was skeptical to start with… I always thought that this stuff only happened sometimes, and more for other people (you know, the rich, successful ones featured in The Secret) than for me.
But. Enter experiment number One: The Dude Abides Principle. Basically here – after Pam has not only convinced you to give it a try but really really got you wanting to very very badly – you ask the energy force for a blessing, just to let you know it is actually there. Yes I got one! Of course I did….
Well, you say, this could just be coincidence. But time after time, experiment after experiment, she pulled me in and the energy force delivered. I got ACTUAL REAL-LIFE things that I asked for.
If you have any inclination toward this at all, or if you are a massive skeptic, or if you just want to laugh out loud,… I highly recommend this book.
And uh – be careful what you wish for!!
FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
I Was Very Suspicious But Pleasantly Surprised
Batting 1000 through Chapter 5
While I didn’t need more proof than I already had of the validity of her claim, I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by the extremely easy experiments and the quick responses. My favorite was the first, the “Dude Abides Principle”. The hypothesis was written to provide evidence of the energy force available to us. The author asks us to simply ask for a blessing with 48 hours as evidence of its reality.
The next 48 hours brought several blessings to me, all could have been discarded as coincidences (if you believe in those) but the one that provided a slice of humorous, concrete evidence was the shim.
Soon after starting the experiment a thought crossed my mind, “I need a shim”. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, it’s commonly used in carpentry. According to the Free Dictionary, a shim is “a thin, often tapered piece of material, such as wood, stone, or metal, used to fill gaps, make something level, or adjust something to fit properly.” Since I’m not a carpenter it’s not something that I make reference to very often, although I have a few scattered around my house.
That afternoon I left to visit a friend in a neighboring city and planned to spend the weekend. She had a few visitors in the next day for a brunch and as we were sitting discussing a myriad of topics, she turned to me and asked, “Do you need a shim?” At that she opened her hand revealing two teeny plastic shims with a hole in the fat end. They were more of a novelty item since they could be hung on a key chain. I very nearly fell out of my chair. I had not participated in more than the one single thought of needing a shim. I never wrote it on a shopping list nor mentioned it to a living soul. It was a single, isolated thought and the resultant provision was immediate and clear. Needless to say, the shim hangs on my key chain as a constant reminder of the power of a single thought.
Pam’s book is filled with experiments like this which all produced positive results for me. Her writing was clear and entertaining. She referenced leaders in the field who profess to believe in the power of our thoughts and how they create our reality, all favorites in my book. From The Course in Miracles to Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Water Crystals in What the Bleep!? – Down the Rabbit Hole, she brought them all together.
I heartily recommend this book if you are a believer in the power of our thoughts on the energy field surrounding us as a physical confirmation and reminder. To those who doubt its existence, I beg of you to read this book and perform these experiments as evidence of the unseen.
Explore Beyond the Usual Gives this Book 4 of 5 Stars!
This is no boring quantum physics manual. Pam is an entertaining writer, keeping the reader’s interest, making them laugh while they learn.
Pam says her book is about a “space heater” or an “invisible energy source.” She claims this ‘space heater’ is 100% reliable. She says, “It works every time like a set of math principles or law of physics. Two plus two always equals four. Balls dropped off roofs always fall. Your every thought always affects physical reality.”
Pam challenges the reader to know this ‘space heater’ type energy exists by experimenting with it on their own. Most of these experiments are expected to produce results within 48 hours or less with little cost.
I Explored Beyond the Usual and tried most of the experiments myself. I was surprised to find one of them worked within minutes. Here are the results of my tests:
The Abracadabra Principle: Failed
The Dude Abides Principle: Took a little longer than 48 hours but did work
The Volkswagon Jetta Principle: This test not only worked with what I wrote down to manifest, it worked with what she wrote down to manifest– sunsets beige cars and butterflies. I had crossed out her manifestation selections and wrote in my own. I manifested both selections within 24 hours (within minutes really).
The Alby Einstein Principle: Passed (see photo with dowsing rods)
The Dear Abby Principle: Undetermined. No noticeable response to the question asked.
The 101 Dalmations Principle: Failed
So, a mixed bag really. I loved reading the book. Pam Grout is a great storyteller. Her writing is top notch and entertaining. It’s a great way to learn how energy works in our lives. I would recommend the book to those who want to take their interest and knowledge of the law of attraction to the next level and start working with the concept is a structured but fun way.

With an open mind and heart this book will transform your life
What Pam Grout does really, really well in this book is give very simple and effective experiments that help re-train your ability to see the Universe as a bountiful and blessing-filled place. These are not magic tricks and spells, but simply exercises designed to help you understand your relationship with what the author calls the FP (the Field of Infinite Potentiality).
Each chapter of the book addresses a different aspect of the FP and includes an experiment designed to help make that concept tangible in your own life. I like the structure of the book because each chapter really stands alone so that you can work through the book at your own pace. I ended up doing 1 of the chapters/experiments each week. You could do it much more quickly, but I enjoyed really spending a week focused intently on and enjoying the discovery of each concept.
My favorite part of reading the book and trying the experiments was just how quickly I saw the results of the experiments. It was amazing how quickly my perceptions of the world changed because of this. I started waking up every day prepared to be amazed by something that I would see or experience. It’s an incredibly blissful feeling, and one I can thank this book for instilling in me.
