Why do we love superheroes? The top movies of the past several years have revolved around the superhero theme (The Avengers, Thor, Spiderman, Superman, etc.). Is it because Marvel Comics has finally discovered a way to perpetuate their comic book characters? Or are we drawn to these movies because they all follow the same plot – the weak hero has no confidence and no direction, but suddenly learns that he is special and different, and that his “power” can save the world.
Why does the typical Superhero plot resonate with so many people?
Because we all have a secret hope to BE that person who discovers their hidden talent. We are joined together by the same desire – we want to be the hero and save the day!
Sadly, most people shove that desire down so deep that not even Dr. Robert Ballard (who discovered the final resting place of the Titanic) could find it. Is all hope lost? Are we doomed to live lives of “quiet desperation?”
Fortunately, the answer is a resounding “NO!”
Enter Pam Grout, the author of E-Squared, Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality. I am slowly working my way through each of the experiments, and have previously written about the first five.
Now its time to tackle Experiment #6 – The Superhero Principle: Your Thoughts and Consciousness Impact Matter.
Based on the premise that your thoughts are much more powerful than you can imagine, Pam leads you through a series of stories from her own life and those of others who have overcome sickness, disease and went on to lead fulfilling lives. From describing Masaru Emoto’s thought experiments on water molecules to the fascinating story about Terry McBride, Pam demonstrates that thoughts have their own energy and impact matter.
Now for the experiment. I planted seeds in six small containers (three on each side) and took care of them for seven days. But I added something extra to the right side of the tray – my thoughts and imagination that the seeds on the right side would grow faster than the left. What was the result?
Disappointing. I will not lie or distort the truth. When I went to check on the tray this morning, I expected to see growth…live green plants reaching for the sky. But all that was there was dark dirt, moist and seemingly empty. But then I looked closer, with more intention. And saw evidence that I was a Superhero!
Only one tiny plant emerged from the soil…and it was on the right side! Now that I think about it, maybe I am not too disappointed after all.
E-Squared is amazing – it takes you gently by the hand and shows you how to experience these principles yourself. Not through the perception of another…but YOU having the experience. It sounds simple but believe me, it will change your ideas about how you create your world.
