Law of Attraction Experiment #1 - The Ultimatum
One of my favorite Law of Attraction books is E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout. The book starts with a great explanation of how and why manifesting works that takes a unique science-oriented approach and has a refreshingly down to earth, witty, and entertaining style. The book then backs up the theory with nine do-it-yourself experiments that will prove to you that your thoughts indeed create your reality.
Pam points out that the best way to start developing your manifesting abilities is by doing some short and simple experiments. Ones designed to be short enough that you ought to be able to suspend your disbelief for their duration (which is crucial) and see some actual results!
Given some successful experiments, it's likely you'll start taking this Law of Attraction stuff seriously and begin to embrace your creatorship — and get very excited! What could be more exciting than discovering that YOU ARE A CREATOR?
I thought it would be fun and informative to do some of these experiments and share my results as a part of my Law of Attraction Pearls of Wisdom series. I'm also hoping that this might inspire SOME OF YOU to try these experiments yourself and SHARE your results in the comments section of this post.
The Field of Infinite Possibilities
Pam describes the energetic field of the universe as a field of infinite possibilities which we can tap into with our thoughts and intentions to manifest whatever our minds can imagine. She refers to this as the field of potentiality or the FP for short. She says that the FP, like electricity, is completely predictable, dependable, and available to everyone. You just have to understand the rules of creation and trust and embrace your powers. Are you ready to dive in and test your creative power?
The Ultimatum Experiment
The first experiment that Pam offers in her book could be best described as an ULTIMATUM. In this experiment, we'll give the FP 48 hours to deliver an unexpected gift or blessing. We won't specify anything specific; we'll just ask it to send us a gift that we wouldn't normally receive — something truly unexpected, so it's dead obvious when it arrives and it can't be written off as coincidence.
I initiated this experiment at 7:10 pm on Thursday, September 8th, 2016 as I was hiking down a mountain. I actually made an audio recording of the request that I made to the universe. Here's the transcript of what I said…

I am asking you to give me conclusive proof that I am a creator, that I create with my thoughts and desires. What I am asking you to do is to deliver to me some unexpected gift that will be blatantly obvious when it arrives. Something that wouldn't normally occur and something fairly impressive and convincing because I'm doing this as an experiment that I will publish on my blog for all to see. And I'm asking for it in the next 24 hours. I'm asking for this deadline because if we go too long, I might not be able to suspend my disbelief in this process, and doubt might creep in. And we don't want that to happen because doubt is a manifestation killer.
Notice that my statement was more like a request than a demand or command. This is just my style; a full-on ultimatum would have worked just as well. The FP doesn't care exactly how you express your desire; it just responds to your thoughts and expectations.
Also, notice that I accidentally gave a deadline of 24 hours rather than 48 hours as intended. Hey, I had a brain fart, what can I say. But guess what? My gift was delivered within 24 hours! Actually, it came in well short of that, it arrived the very next morning — a mere 14 hours after initiating the experiment! Here's the email that I received that contained my unexpected gift…

Subject: Can I publish your epic article 'The Multidimensional Self'?
I trust all is well. Doing great here. Wondering if I may have your permission to post your epic article on the multi-dimensional self.
Thanks in advance for your consideration,
Unexpected But Just What I Needed and Wanted!
This request for permission to publish my article The Multidimensional Self was truly UNEXPECTED! I hadn't submitted this or any other article to WakingTimes.com. In fact, I hadn't submitted an article or had one published by another website for quite a while. And my blogs traffic and engagement was suffering because of it.
Since my budding writing career and my blog is the centerpiece of my life right now, the growth of my blogs audience is of great importance to me. I'd actually been thinking quite a bit about my need and desire to get another guest post on another website and had been doing a lot of thinking about what sites to submit to.
So of course, I was delighted when this unexpected, but very appropriate gift arrived, and I immediately seized the opportunity. The success of this experiment is a great example of how manifesting works — it draws to you information, people, things, and CIRCUMSTANCES consistent with your strongest and most predominant thoughts and desires. Even thou I hadn't specified what I wanted the Universe still delivered exactly what had been on my mind and most important to me!
Now It's Your Turn
Can I coax some of you into trying this experiment and reporting your results back here in the comment section of this post? Suspend your disbelief for 48 hours and dive into this experiment! You've got nothing to lose and so much to gain. What could be more important than discovering that YOU ARE A CREATOR!
Let the magic begin!
