The Parable Of God The Farmer And The Wheat Crop

“So many readers responded favorably, I thought I’d share another story. God was minding his business when approached by an old, weathered farmer who had an axe to grind. God could see the man was not pleased. ‘ What gives?’ Asked God. ‘Need something?’

The man said quite angrily, ‘You may be the  big guy, you may be top dog, god, yada yada yada ,who flung the stars into the sky and created the world, but you don’t know the first thing about farming. You are not a farmer at all! You have got a lot to learn, pal!’

God asked, ‘What do you suggest I do? The farmer said, ‘Give me a year! One bloody year. Leave everything to me. Don’t interfere. Let me run it. I’ll take care of everything. You do what I say because I know what works. You’ll see how it works. You big enough to do it?’

What We Call Failure Is Necessary –  Through Struggles We Learn

‘At the end of a year there will be no poverty at all. You will see!’ God was game. He gave the farmer one year. The farmer asked god for the best of everything. Great weather. No storms, no lighting or thunder. No high winds. No high heat. Everything was perfect.

When the farmer wanted rain it rained. When he asked for sun he got sun. The wheat crops were growing fast and high. They grew taller than they ever had. Everything was perfect and comfortable. Everything was easy and the farmer was thrilled and delighted.

He approached god and said, ‘What did I tell you. Take a look at these crops. Bigger and better than ever. Did I tell you, or what? We have a bountiful harvest coming that will feed people for a decade! Aren’t you glad you put me in charge? You learned something I bet.’

Man Needs Difficulties – They Are Necessary For Health

When the crops were harvested there was no wheat inside. Empty! The farmer was shocked and dismayed. He asked god, ‘What happened? What went wrong?’ God said, ‘Because there was no conflict, no storms, no challenges to the crops, they didn’t grow’.

‘You avoided everything that would cause them to grow strong. You wanted everything perfect and comfortable which made the wheat impotent. Storms, high winds, dry spells, lightening all challenge the crop and help it grow strong and firm and vital. You avoided that.’

“Struggle is necessary for it to be vital. Challenge is good for the soul of the wheat.’ Don’t be like the farmer. Don’t try to escape challenge learn that it is as necessary as night is to the day. Muscles grow through resistance training. So do we. Understand this and you will grow strong and move forward faster. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

The Tale Of A Mystic God And An Old And Young Man

“Indian mystic Narada was off to see god. As he journeyed he played his veena, a stringed instrument. In the midst of a forest he encountered an aged monk sitting against a tree. The old monk asked Narada to ask god a question when Narada saw him.

‘Please tell him I have been making great efforts for three lives now. When, oh when, will he see fit to allow me to be enlightened and free?’ Narada agreed that he would ask and continued on his journey to meet up with god.

Turning a bend in the forest path he found, under another tree, a young man dancing and singing. Narada, being a man of humor, asked the young man, ‘Would you like to ask god a question?’ The young man kept dancing. He didn’t reply. Narada thought he’s deaf.

Trust And Let Go – Celebrate Everything – Be Grateful And Play

He asked again. The young man continued to dance, sing and play on his ektara as if he had not heard. Narada journeyed on. After a few days he returned. Seeing the old monk again, against the tree, he told him god’s news. ‘He said, ‘three more lives.’ The old monk raged.

He got so angry he shook his fists at the sky, threw down his scriptures and prayer beads and exclaimed, ‘this is too much! Three more lives! So unfair!’ Leaving him Narada again encountered the young dancing and singing man. He continued to dance and sing.

‘Although you did not ask, I asked god for you. How many more lives will this young man have to live before his liberation? God replied, ‘tell him he will have to be born and lead as many lives as there are leaves on the tree he dances under. ‘ The young man danced more.

Drop And Release The Old Limitations And Become Totally New

He danced more enthusiastically! He seemed in ecstasy. ‘Really, so few? So fast? There are so many trees in all the world and I only have to live this many more lives? Next time you go to see god give him my thanks!’ It is said the young man became enlightened right then!

Dance, play, sing, enjoy life. Delight. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Why Shifting Is So Important!

“When you focus on problems or the distance between where you are and where you want to be you loose energy. You loose steam. You vibrate low or you feel low.  When you concentrate on lack of money, health, love or anything your system is stressed and low.

Your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual energy wanes when you are focused on problems and not having what you want. That is why you need to shift from focusing on less than glorious circumstances to what you want to create instead.

Stop focusing on how far you have to go and focus on winning the race. Imagine the race already won and all the accolades and awards and cheering and celebration. Get your spirits and your energy up. When you vibrate high, you are happier and more productive.

Positive Energy Heals – Everything Is Energy – Focus On Positive

The act of shifting from the negative to the positive is the basis of forming a new positive habit. When you are aware of feeling less than gloriously, and you consciously decide to change it, it is a good thing. You are developing the habit of shifting your attention.

You deliberately shift your focus and your energy. You develop the habit by repeating this, each time, as necessary. Soon, it becomes automatic. Soon, fewer and fewer things bother you or pull you down. You move from Donnie Downer to Upbeat Uma. Get it?

You will develop a new pattern of thought. You will raise your feeling point, you vibrational point, and that will cause you to create and attract the kind of people, circumstances and things, you like and want more of in your life. Remember, you attract who you are!

Be The Energy You Want To Attract – Be It Now – It Is Up To You

This is why the shift is so important. This is why being grateful is so important. The more pleased and happier you are with the present, whatever this present moment is, the more happiness you get in return. You generate it. That is why it is important to train your mind to see the good in any, and all, situations and focus on the positive. To be able to do that more easily, celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Will Never Have The Good Life Doing This!

“Stop and consider this. Why on earth would you ever get what you want while focused on what you don’t want? I mean really. If you wanted to come and visit me, but focused on every place I wasn’t at, how would you ever expect to get there? You wouldn’t, would you?

Yet, this is what people do all the time. They think, speak and affirm all the difficulty and issues they experience. They gleefully share bad news with family and friends. They out do each other with stories of woe. Do you think this leads to a more positive and productive life?

There is a reason for the statement, ‘misery loves company’. There is a reason for the statement, ‘birds of a feather flock together’. You get more of the same, whatever you are focused on. You don’t get its opposite. You don’t get to Milwaukee, talking about Texas.

If You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t – You Are Right

You must focus on where you want to end up regardless of where you are right now. That is the principle behind the GPS. It knows where you are and where you want to get to. It assists you in choosing the quickest path, and in some cases, avoiding blocks.

That is what affirming, what you want, does for you. It keeps the destination in  mind while you journey. If you want more good things in life, you must put and keep your attention on those. Energy flows where attention goes. You get what you think about most often!

You don’t get what you love, focused on what you hate. So, why do you persist? Habit. It has been a habit and you must learn to change the habit. That is why I write this blog to help you. That is why I have products and seminars for many years assisting people. Get it?

You Become What You Think About Most Often

Stop focusing on what your problems are and begin shifting your attention to what you want to be, do and have! No matter what circumstances present themselves, no matter where you are on the journey, stay focused. This is how you make it happen. Get it? Focus on what you want. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Why You Should Use Affirmations

“We use affirmations to fill our mind with the thoughts we want to think on an automatic and habitual basis. We condition the mind with affirmations so we get back from our mind what we put into it, whenever we need to. Automatically and reliably! It is habit.

We make positive statements so when the going gets tough we get the benefits of our positive thinking. Just as you harvest the fruits of the seeds you planted earlier. Saying affirmations is the planting of seeds. The results you get in life are the results of your sowing.

The bottom line is you want to create positive thought habits because many of the thought habits you acquired during the growing process were not positive but limiting. Years of less than optimal programming filled the mind. Affirmations replace that!

I Believe In Myself And My Abilities – I Have Unlimited Potential

Affirmations are the new programming and the new programming instructions for how you choose to now live your life. You decide. you affirm it , you make it happen. Affirmations are the gas in your vehicle. They provide the necessary mental rocket fuel to take off.

What most people don’t understand correctly, is we already use affirmations to great effect to get exactly what we don’t want. Consider worry as negative planning. How we think and speak on a routine basis creates our experience. We live from our thoughts.

More about this in the next blog. For now. Practice affirmations daily. Put them to work for you as suggested in the last blog. Focus on things you are grateful for and create a daily list. Affirm your gratitude list everyday, too. Out loud, when alone works wonders! Enjoy, delight and celebrate everything!”Rex Sikes

Some Useful Secrets To Powerful Transformative Affirmations

“People ask me what affirmations are good to use. They ask me what I use. The most powerful are, anything that follows ‘I am’ in present tense. Such as, ‘I am confident. I am loving. I am rich. I am intelligent. I am healthy.’ Phrase it as if it is currently the case. You’re it, right now.

It is simple! Most important are the feelings you say the affirmations with. Even more important than the words are the emotions behind the words. So say them with conviction, passion, enthusiasm, confidence and joy. That is what is truly important. I promise you!

If you feel nagging doubt when you say the affirmation there are two things you should know. One, you may be comparing where you are to where you want to be, and notice the difference, and  feel less than glorious. Stop that! Focus on what you want, as if it is reality.

Whatever You Focus On – Talk – Read -Think About – You Create

Two, anytime you seek to make a change your brain, attempting to keep you safe and the same, will throw doubt, worry, fear, limiting beliefs and negative thoughts at you, to attempt to keep you from changing. It is why most people abandon the pursuit. Stop it.

Don’t let a thought prevent you from doing something good and positive for yourself and others. Stop listening. Put your attention elsewhere. Say, ‘thanks for sharing  but I go this covered. I’m going to go ahead and be rich, health, intelligent and loving anyway. Thanks!’

Don’t fight it. Work with it. Accept it and divert it. Use the phrase I just gave you. Take a break. Go for a walk. Take some deep breaths. Jump up and down. Interrupt the pattern when it fires off by doing something else. Anything else! Just be safe about it. It works.

When You Affirm You Imagine – If You Imagine – You Can Create 

If it just won’t seem to go away, and IF you repeat your affirmation with conviction consistently, EVERY day, IT WILL. But, in the event you can’t see your way through it, and make the changes for yourself, you can always ask a question or place yourself in a learning process.

You can say, ‘I wonder how soon before I feel really healthy. I wonder how soon before I realize how truly rich I am. How quickly can I discover it is easy to feel confident.’ This is an aspect of using my Directed Questions™ approach. Another aspect of it, is this.

‘I am in the process of getting really, really healthy. I am learning how to appreciate how rich I am. I am in the process of learning to be delightfully confident in the appropriate situations’ Get it. You direct your mind gently without setting up any conflict. You’re in process.

If It Is To Be It Is Up To Me – Accept Responsibility And Do It

Of course, the wise person will realize you can do both and blend them. So I hope you will. What follows are a few of the affirmations I use morning, before bed and throughout the day. You can  use affirmations from others, but it is best if you create your own.

‘I love my life. I am blessed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Everything always works out for the best for me. Unexpected good always comes my way. I don’t know how, but everything always works out and I am grateful. Thank you. Thank you Thank you!’

Well, there you have some tips and some affirmations. Put it into daily regular use and you will transform your life and experience. Do nothing with it, and nothing much may change. It is the application of knowledge that is transformative, not the knowledge, itself. Get it? Do it! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
