Shift your perspective.

Believe in miracles.

The universe is working completely in your favor.

God’s timing is perfect.

Be the change.

We’ve all heard something to the effect of all the above statements. On some days we believe and practice them with our whole hearts. On other days it does not seem that easy.

My faith is the strongest it has ever been. I feel lighter than I have ever felt. I honestly believe it is all possible.

And yet, there are days that my own self doubt, inner critic, comparison, and some days just life, get in the way of it all.

No, in reality, I allow it to steal it away from me on those days.

I have recently started reading Pam Grout’s E-Squared and frankly had to share my own manifested miracles with you all.

Starting the book I had my fears and my doubts, especially as a Christian.

Was I not trusting God by even reading this book?

Pam quickly dispelled my fears. As she writes:

“The FP (field of potentiality) is a force field that’s equally available to everyone. It’s a natural capacity in all of us, not an exclusive gift bestowed upon a few. In fact, that is the primary lesson Jesus taught. God is within. You are part of God. You can perform miracles.”

“Jesus is our brother, our legacy, the guy we’re supposed to emulate.”

“The will of God, for those who insist on using that term, is the ceaseless longing of the spirit in you to become all you’re capable of being. Amen.”

And from these words, I was on board enough to try to her experiments and honestly it didn’t take me long to open my heart and mind to the possibilities.

The possibilities God has right in front of me, just waiting for me to believe in.

Experiment #1: The Dude Abides Principle

Bottom Line: We are surrounded by infinite possibilities, all we have to do is ask for them. I asked the universe/energy/field/God (for me, I call it God) for a clear sign/blessing/gift and it had 48 hours to show it to me. My deadline was Monday May 25th at 4:36pm.

That morning I sat outside with my morning smoothie observing what could only be an introductory flight lesson between mom and dad robin and their three baby robins. The babies were just about popping out of the little nest they had built on top of our light right outside our back door. I, of course, had been checking on them multiple times a day for the last few weeks. I swear, I would be an animal hoarder if it weren’t for Chad. And yes, I squeal with childlike wonder and joy at the sight of any baby animal. After the flight lesson I also watched breakfast be served. I knew this was incredible but still felt there was more to come.

Just a few hours later, both Chad and I were outside and Chad went up to the nest to take a peek. All of a sudden all three babies flew/fell out of the nest in all different directions.

We just witnessed their first flight.

Within seconds at least ten adult robins descended upon us, making sure their new family members were safe. Each baby seemed to pair off with an adult and hop/skipped/flew off.

It was such an incredible moment; a true, fulfilling gift.

Experiment #2: The Volkswagen Jetta Principle

Bottom Line: According to Pam, the world out there reflects what we want to see. She says that it’s nothing but our own illusions that keep us from experiencing peace, joy and love. The assignment was to count how many sunset beige cars we saw in the next 24 hours; then the next 24 hours how many yellow butterflies.

What we look for we will see!

My deadline for the car count was Monday at 5:30pm. My day started of strong and fabulous with my self-care morning routine. And then I totally got in my head about the book. That inner critic coming in and reminding me of scarcity and comparison. I left for my office to see 8 clients that day in a not so great mood (that I now realize I had completely created myself). I only have a short commute to work and up to that point I had only counted about 5 sunset beige cars, and admittedly, was not super impressed with this experiment thus far. On my commute I remembered, oh yea I need to count cars!

In my eight minute commute I counted 20 sunset beige cars.

I literally laughed out loud and looked up,

Got it! Look for what you want to see and you will see it.

If this isn’t true perspective shift I am not sure what is. The next 24 hours I counted 7 yellow butterflies, and yes I couple of them I completely created myself in my butterfly coloring book that morning.

This is creating the life you want.

This is just the beginning…

I will post about my experiences with the next experiments but can already tell you, I am a believer.

A believer in God, in endless possibility and in myself.

I have always, especially in these last few years of practicing my recovery, known how much our lens we see the through world effects everything.

And that lens is completely within our control.

Things are always in our favor, everything is a message and it can be, and will be, incredibly amazing.

If we just get out of the damn way, believe it and live it.

This is the life I want to live and embody, one of light, love, belief, and of course, ever upward.

Getting out of our own way; What


Keep those Amazon reviews coming please. And, keep an eye on my social media, I have some exciting changes and things coming up!

  2. I find this interesting, though my inner skeptic is like “riiiiiight.” If nothing else I can see where this would be a healthy distraction technique (i.e., you’re so focused on counting cars, butterflies, whatever that whatever other stuff you have going on fades into the background-like your cars example).

    1. Going through her experiments, makes it pretty difficult to remain a skeptic! Check it out and let me know if you come to the side of potentiality ;). Thanks for reading and commenting!! Justine


      1. Maybe I will try the experiements. 🙂 I have a complicated relationship with spirituality/religion/god/the universe/etc. hence the skepticism. I didn’t mean to sound like I was knocking the experiments or that I didn’t believe you.


      2. Oh I know! Sometimes it’s pretty incredible to actually see the magic ;).


      3. Oh good! Sometimes my shut-up filter lets something through that probably could have been worded better.

    This is really great! i love how the author’s personal life experiences has been into a story filled with laughter and heartfelt sympathy. The story of Justine’s journey is very inspiring, even when she stumbles. It is very encouraging to know her story and it’s a great reminder that we are so much stronger than we think and that we can, and will, survive whatever is happening. I would highly recommend this book for anyone going through hard time. And i love how she used butterfly as an image, butterflies are really beautiful, i love butterflies and the way that this butterflies are flying freely and carefree its just relaxing and helps me to think of thing differently every time i see them. I have this book which is really great, this book has finely detailed illustrations of 100 species of butterflies and moths that can help you identify them easily. And you might want to use some of them too in as an image on your next book.


    1. Thank you so much! Wondering if you could leave this incredible review on Amazon?
