June Book Club & Audio Takeaways
I first was introduced to this book when I was closing my store in 2015. A styling client who was into the Law of Attraction showed me this book and said I should check it out. I wasn't ready for it, so took a mental note and went on my way.
Then recently one of my wonderful coaching friends announced she was hosting a live event in London with Pan Grout. I thought, if Stacey is bringing this woman to London, I better take this book seriously and get into it!
Low and behold, magic started to happen. Listen to my audio recap to hear about the incredible story of how I am now 1000% sure that there is a much bigger force we need to start working with ASAP.

My Favorite Quotes from E Squared
“The way we have been perceiving life needs to be rolled away, so that which is true can appear.” —MICHELE LONGO O’DONNELL, CREATOR OF LIVING BEYOND
Quantum physics defines the field as “invisible moving forces that influence the physical realm.”
Because energy is invisible and because we’re still operating from old-school principles that put materiality first, we haven’t learned to truly harness this fundamental building block.
the field connects all of us, and that the reason we control our lives is because every thought we have is an energy wave that affects everything else in the universe.
Basically what it says is, “There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilities.” The experiment could best be described as an ultimatum.
In fact, reality is nothing but waves of possibility that we have “observed” into form. This principle states, “You impact the field and draw from it according to your beliefs and expectations,” and to prove it we’ll set the following clear intention: “This is what I want to pull out of the field in the next 48 hours.”
human beings are not matter, but continually moving waves of energy.
Most people associate the word abracadabra with magicians pulling rabbits out of hats. It’s actually an Aramaic term that translates into English as, “I will create as I speak.”
“Your thoughts and consciousness provide the scaffolding for your physical body”
“You can never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” —BUCKMINSTER FULLER, AMERICAN FUTURIST
“Man’s chief delusion is his conviction that there are causes other than his own state of consciousness.” — NEVILLE GODDARD, BARBADIAN AUTHOR AND MYSTIC
To bring something into the physical world requires focusing not on what we see, but on what we want to see.
The field of potentiality simply follows the energy you send out. And your thought vibrations draw other vibrations that match.
The coincidences we see in our lives are just energy and the FP at work.
The First Step in Spiritual Enlightenment: Give Up Your Powerful Attachment to Conventional Reality
“We are all captives of a story.” —DANIEL QUINN, AUTHOR OF ISHMAEL
consciousness itself creates the material world.
The problem is, we all look at the world with a giant chip on our shoulder. All we need to do to change the course of our crummy lives is to get over our ongoing grudge against the world, to actively see and expect a different reality. As it is now, we devote all our time and attention (our consciousness, if you will) to things we do not want.
I’ll take that bit of information over there, and let’s see—this one fits nicely with my ongoing soap opera about the opposite sex.
Like those highway planners who put I-70 on the flattest, quickest, and easiest route, we build our neural pathways on the least complicated routes—the ones we’ve traveled so many times before. But this doesn’t show us reality. Not even close. We don’t begin to see all that is there—only three and a half minutes, compared to 821 years.
“It takes zero faith. What it takes is imagination. ... If it’s clear in your thought, it is even this moment barreling down on you like a Mack truck.” —RICHARD BACH, AUTHOR OF ILLUSIONS AND OTHER METAPHYSICAL NOVELS
The minute you make an intention, you create it. It’s instantaneous. It exists as an actual thing. You don’t see it yet because you’re still operating from linear time. You’re still sold on the old-school adage “creating things takes time.” So you keep working and waiting. You keep following the seven steps from the latest self-help book. But here’s what physicists tell us. Things, in the quantum world, do not happen in steps. They happen immediately.
What we see, experience, and feel with our five senses always comes after the decision to see, experience, and feel it.
“We live in a world that worships limitations.” —TAMA KIEVES, AUTHOR OF THIS TIME I DANCE!
We’ve named it difficult. The power to create with our thoughts is a piece of cake. That’s not even up for debate. But we keep telling our friends and especially ourselves that it’s hard or that we’re still working on it.
Currently, our minds are devoted to things we do not want. Our positive intentions occupy but a tiny sliver of our minds. The rest is focused on the problems we hope the intentions will eliminate. The majority of our brainpower is devoted to the old beliefs of scarcity, problem relationships, and a God who shoots fire bolts from heaven.
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” —LEO TOLSTOY, RUSSIAN NOVELIST
Keep your mind focused only on what you want. And anytime that puppy starts heading toward those slippers, pick it up and take it back outside.
“The greatest discovery and development of the coming years will be along spiritual lines. Here is a force which history clearly teaches has been the greatest power in the development of man and history, and yet we have been merely playing with it and have never seriously studied it as we have physical forces. Some day people will learn that material things do not bring happiness and are of little use in making men and women creative and powerful. Then the scientists of the world will turn their laboratories over to the study of the spiritual forces. When this day comes, the world will see more advancement in one generation than it has in the past four.” — CHARLES PROTEUS STEINMETZ, INVENTOR OF THE ALTERNATING-CURRENT MOTOR
“Open your mind and clear it of all thoughts that would deceive.”
The FP is a power, an unseen energetic force. It isn’t finite or limited, so you certainly couldn’t ask too much of it.
If anything, we don’t use the FP power nearly enough. This is an all-powerful force we’re talking about here, not some last-minute relief team that comes in to pay the mortgage. The FP is not an adversary that has to be coaxed to the bargaining table.
you do need to give a clearly defined request and a concrete deadline. And as always, it helps to ask for help in recognizing your gift.
Perhaps you think it’s only appropriate to ask for something you need. That signal, too, is being radioed to the energy field.
Expect to see the dude in living color. Expect it with your whole heart. Expect it with every ounce of your soul.
In other words, the material world is nothing but dense energy patterns.
So, despite how it looks to the naked eye, you are energy.
It only looks solid because the energy is vibrating a little slower than the speed of light.
You’re energy. At each moment, you mold and shape this energy by your consciousness. You do so with every thought, every intention, every action. How you feel; what you think, believe, and value; and how you live your life affect how the energy flows through you.
We always attract our vibrational match. We are the initiators of the vibrations, and therefore the “magnets,” or the cause.
Everything in the physical world as we know it is connected to every other thing in the physical world. You are attached and engaged to one underlying universal energy field. “The field,” as Daddy Alby Einstein said, “is the only reality.”
Your intelligence, creativity, and imagination interact with this magnificent and complex energy field.
And focusing your attention, energy, and awareness.
Decide you want it and keep focusing until you’ve pulled it all the way through.
Do not feel guilty. Want it. Walk toward it with all your heart and might. Just know there are higher rungs. And that most people hoard material things out of fear. And fear, after all, is what we’re attempting to move away from.
On one hand, we pray for things to work out, but on the other, we worry they won’t. At the same time we imagine a positive outcome, we secretly think optimism is a bunch of baloney. We want to be committed to a relationship with so-and-so, but what if he leaves? We want to make money, but didn’t the Bible say something about camels and rich people and the eye of a needle?
thought is creative. The thoughts you hold in your mind, both conscious and unconscious, create what you see in your life. Every thought has a certain vibration. It boomerangs back to you according to its pitch, intensity, and depth of feeling. Your thoughts show up in your life in proportion with their constancy, intensity, and power.
Your thoughts are extremely powerful. But the FP doesn’t respond only to your pleas. Let me repeat: it responds to every thought—conscious and unconscious—with opposing sides battling it out.
Instead of using our thoughts to think up new ideas, to ask for the answers to life’s great mysteries, we waste them on trivial, insignificant, thoroughly meaningless things.
Anytime we look for an answer, we make the false assumption that the answer isn’t already here. Intending love or happiness or some other desired goal defeats the whole purpose. It assumes that the outcome of life is still in doubt. It’s not.
You have to live under the assumption that your intention has already happened. You have to feel as if it has already come to pass—to get those ducks lined up ... to get all those waves in laser-like coherence.
one of the reasons Jesus was crucified was that those in command thought he was altogether too confident.
But Jesus didn’t just think he could do these things. He knew. He knew the truth of who he was, which made his mind a veritable laser. He didn’t stop to question if a blind man could see (after all, the gift of health and perfect self-expression is everyone’s divine right) or if water could become wine. He knew he had the right to command the heavens and the earth. In fact, that’s the only big difference between Jesus and you and me. We’re still wondering.
To ask for something in prayer is to simply lay hold of what’s yours.
Intentions that are focused through an integrated, whole personality are like a laser—a single, clear beam.
“A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.” —WILLIAM JAMES, AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGIST AND PHILOSOPHER
Suffice it to say, this spin doctor in the brain is not your best resource. It judges, distorts reality, and causes unnecessary emotional distress.
inner guidance. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll find it’s extremely reliable. Plus, its answers are far more peaceful, instinctive, and responsive to all the unpredictable factors that the conscious mind can’t begin to understand.
