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, lovi ...more

Experiment one: Worked! Asked for a tangible item within the time frame. Got it!

Experiment two: Very funny! Saw more green cars than sunset beige (exactly what I believed would happen). Saw butterflies on the side of a bus going past me, and had a yellow butterfly flutter in front of me as I sat in the winter sunshine - unexpected!

Experiment three: Still learning how to use the dowsing wands....

Experiment 4: whoa baby! Manifested what I wanted to happen within 48 hours, although I had allowed on

I really do believe that my thoughts play a big part in my reality. This book however, was nothing more than a rehash of "The Secret." I did try the first experiment, which was unsuccessful. Many my think I was not open enough, or negative thoughts intruded. There is a lot I find fascinating about this world, so much I will never understand. I love the mystery of it all. This book is just not for me. ...more

I was intrigued by the title and the $2.51 price. The closet geek in me was excited to try the 9 experiments that would “prove” to me that the law of attraction exists and works for ordinary people.
The first 15% of the book explains how and why the law of attraction works. The author gave examples and stories of wonderful results. I went from being curious to full of anticipation by the time the experiment section made its appearance.

And so began the experiments:

This is an absolutely fantastic book! Unless you have been living in a cave then you have been exposed to the concept that your thoughts create your reality and there are at least a million books out there now devoted to the subject. Yawn. What makes this book different is that Pam Grout has been around the block several times now and has lived her life, she has studied spiritual concepts for several decades and has been using the "experiments" in her own life to achieve results. She writes in a ...more

Well, this book was a bust for me. I'm over halfway through. The first 3 experiments bombed. While I do believe our thoughts can create our reality, and I do believe positive/negative thought can bring in positive/negative perception of reality, and that confidence can create a more active risk-taker (and therefore a better "accomplisher,") I'm not really jiving with the whole Law of Attraction thing. A lot of this stuff is rehashed from The Secret (which I did not like for many reasons), What t ...more

Amazing book!

I will now be sharing it with anyone with an open enough mind to give it a shot.
I'm here to tell you that I started reading this book because, even though I was a believer, I still had doubt here and there.
So I gave this gem a try, and boy I'm here to tell you that I no longer have any. Every experiment that I attempted worked. The majority of them were proven in less than 48 hours. And those that did surpass that, only took about an extra day or two.

Ms. Grout has written an amazing book on LOA. I have been following this since The Secret came out in 2006. What separates her book from the others are these easy to follow experiments that prove that The Universe is really shaped by our thoughts.
Every single experiment in this book worked for me. Here are my results:

This is THE book to read if you've been wondering how to become a manifesting success story. I've read The Secret, all of the works of Catherine Ponder and Florence Scovel Shinn and I could manifest ... sometimes ... but not every time. Pam put me in the driver's seat and the past few days have been nothing short of miraculous! I noted 7 different amazing happenings in just the first 48 hours. Having fun and looking forward to more. Thanks, Pam! ...more

This book claims that it is new and revolutionary, but hey; in fact it's based on the doctrine of the "New Thought" movement, which began at the end of the nineteenth century. Possibly I have read too many books on quantum physics, metaphysics and the rest. This book does not do it for me. This book focusses on a particular technique to achieve success,finally ending with a related experiment; The outcome 48 hours later we are supposed to experience positive results.

I already have proof that my own thinking affects my personal reality, but I take issue with this type of "magic" thinking. What comes to me does because I focus on it and make it happen, not just believe it will - nothing mystical about it... Just lots of time and practice. There's a distinct line for me between believing something will happen because of positive thinking and making things happen by changing negative thought patterns. As humans, we are capable of amazing things but pretending t ...more

For the very first time, this book made me wish my blog had a huge following. I think everyone should read E-Squared. Although it’s not specifically written for teens, any young adult would love it. In 157 short pages, your mind will be set spinning in a new direction. It will bring you to a place you had never noticed existed. Most importantly, it will open up a whole world of new possibilities.

You guys I really tried, but I couldn't get through this one.

I'm still not completely convinced I am a believer in the Law of Attraction which may be the ultimate issue here. Although I am a firm believer in the power of positive thinking. If you *are* looking for a Law of Attraction book, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is far superior in my opinion although everyone and their grandma has probably already read it.

I liked Pam Grout's ideas but her delivery left something to be desired. I swear like

The book "The Secret" deals with The Law of Attraction. The biggest problem with that book is that it doesn't tell you how to activate TLOA with specificity.

Having studied the higher levels of the martial arts for many years, I have been trained in accessing the intangible levels of engagement using the mind and Pam Grout's book E-Squared delivers on "the how" to activate TLOA exceptionally well. The best I've witnessed thus far.

I agree with the author about how our lives is directly related to our preceptive of reality. That we should have a positive thinking and believe that we can do what we set forth to. But not everyone can be what they want no matter how much they wish for it or imagine they can. You still have to have talent and luck. Not everyone can be the best. There is always someone better than you. I feel the author over simplified things. If we think positively about it long enough, then we will get what w ...more

The fact that this book exists makes me really sad. These are not real experiments. The whole thing is hogwash, people who promote this BS are just extorting money from people who need something to believe in because deep down they are scared or sad or both.

Just because you write 'lab sheet' on a page does not make it science. Neither does out-of-context Einstein quotes (PS, he did not believe in God and 100 misquoted and copied internet pages still won't make it so).

I firmly believe that your mindset or mindframe determines a lot about your life. And I am nothing but open-minded. But I was very disappointed in this book. It outlines several "energy" experiments to prove how your thinking can determine your life.

I tried several, and none of them worked for me. Though, I did not try the dowsing rod experiment.

Of course, they do tend to be very general. If you ask for a blessing, what is the likelihood that something good will not happen to you in the next 48

I should read what is all about before starting to listening. Pseudoscience, wishful thinking and wishful blindness, a lot of biases that I myself went through, and a lot of my friends stayed there since. I don't even consider wrtiign more, as a lot of other thinking people already are. For example:

This book is a bit unrealistic and the experiements are surreal and difficult to implement. It site the bizarre experience of individual and make it the rule of the day and encourages other to try the same. It indicates that if one try, the same can be repeated as a matter of fact. There is an element of uncertainity on what is being projected. However the book is inspirational and has some good quotes to be read and implemented.

Interesting book. It’s set of nine exercises you can perform that demonstrate how the universe operates... similar to the law of attraction I guess. Some of them worked and some didn’t. It makes you feel good while eating it, doing the exercises and afterwards.

I had a very difficult time deciding how to rate this book. I agree with a lot of what the author says in the book, but this book is billed as ”Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality”, and that is where the book falls flat.

People have biases and beliefs that will undoubtedly affect most people from even being able to do the “experiments” without their biases and beliefs affecting the results. A proper way to perform an experiment would be to have a gr

I've always been fascinated with the law of attraction. I believe that it works in some cases, for example if you're thinking positively about wanting more friends in your life, then your being a positive person will attract more people to you than if you were depressed and negative because you think people don't like you. People don't usually want to be around negative folks. If you believe that you can accomplish a goal, you have a much higher success rate than someone who doesn't think that t ...more

Maybe this style of writing works well with an American audience however I hate it. The basic premises are good but it is like wading through treacle to find those nuggets. Waffle, waffle, waffle and most of it totally meaningless in our culture. The same with the experiments; what is 'sunset beige'? Do people still have wire coathangers? Not seen one for years and no amount of manifesting has made one appear for the experiment.

This book covers some interesting themes treated by Napoleon Hill and many others for many decades already.

The basic premise is as Hill would say time and time again: "Thoughts are things."

Our reality is forged by our thoughts.

It is not about optimism nor positive thinking although I see reviewers treating it as such.

The experiments are not as "scientific" as the author suggests. The subjective power of seeing "what you want to see" is powerful. That might seem against the theme of the book but

I read this book over the course of about 4 1/2 months, making sure to only read when I was open to receiving the content.

There are 9 "experiments" that you are asked to "try out" and they all give you a time limit whether it be 24, 48, or 72 hours.

I really felt that a lot of this material resonated with me and shifted my consciousness towards more positive thinking. These experiments require you to be more intentional with what you are thinking. We are all guilty of focusing on the negative a
