E-Squared: 9 Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout Book Review

Another book to help you get the new year started right is E-squared by Pam Grout. If you haven’t already guessed, the title is a play on Albert Einstein’s E = MC2. Fun fact: you’ll see Albert (Alby) Einstein talked about mid-way through the book, too.

Special thanks to a prospective client who requested I read it. I’ve now read it twice and have had a blast trying out the nine exercises. Much like The Secret and A Course in Miracles, this book and Pam herself in subsequent interviews I’ve listened to, helps re-set your mind and expectations.

Using a scientific approach – theory, method, hypothesis, and result – you’re encourage to try out this new way of thinking for yourself. Though I wasn’t a stranger to the world opened up in this book, I had gone a bit off course in how I thought about the world. Thanks 2020 and 2021.

Like anything new, it’s important to enter the reading with an open mind and do the exercises. Though I must admit it was fun to hear about the skeptics who got their assumptions turned upside down!

Years ago, I had a poster from a hypnotist show I’d been to in Las Vegas. It read: What you think about, you bring about. I don’t remember the hypnotist’s name. I couldn’t tell you what month or year it was when I saw the show. But, the single line, I have remembered and repeated.

E-squared is the breakdown of that hypnotist’s line. But here’s the thing. God Doesn’t Have Bad Hair Days was the first title of what would become this book. Personally, I love the original title, but when this book went south, Pam took a step back, kept going with her life without lamenting, and a few years later wrote would become E-2: 9 Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Thoughts Create Your Reality.

Maybe we needed a more science-y name to start picking it up from the digital or physical bookshelf. Or maybe we need things spelled out for us before we’re willing to give it a chance. Who knows? But whatever the reason, I’m glad she gave it another shot, tried again, and succeeded where most would think they’ve failed.

There’s a word in the title that speaks to me. It isn’t create. It’s energy. Consider this: Where do your thoughts turn when your tired, worn down, or just plain had a bad day? Your thoughts go south. You frown, sigh, and wish for Calgon to take you away. Which reminds me, if you need an outing, check out Pam’s travel blog, and see how the other half vacations.

And while you’re on vacation or…tomorrow, check out Pam Grout’s book, E-squared, and see for yourself what the fuss is about.

Disclaimer: While I do get some book for free either from publishers or authors themselves, some are already published and some are Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs), many of the books I’ve reviewed in the past and will review in the future, I have bought myself.

I do my best to support small, locally owned bookstores and independent authors.
