These Things Don’t Have To Kill Us But Might

“We are distracted today by electronics, media, social media and so much more. Our brain space is occupied with alien invaders all day long. All night long. On and on we are bombarded by messages designed to make us weak, powerless, helpless and hopeless.

Advertisers have convinced us that having a human body is a problem only products can remedy. From the top of your head to the tips of your toes and everything in between, inside and out, has a pill, a potion and ointment or a procedure that is required. WOW!

Being human is tough. Then there is your mindset. People are helpless and hopeless, they are anxious, fearful, frustrated, angry and depressed. They need pills or psychotherapy of some form, just to deal with the day to day. Their heads and hearts are broken.

The First Step In Awareness Is To Become Aware Of Your Own BS

Our spirit is ignored. Our relationships suck. Our pocket books empty because we all trying to pursue a vanishing dream, and pay for all the products and fixes we think we need, just to be presentable to others, who do the same thing, at work and play.

We are pressured by social media. We are at a loss without our phones. We battle on Facebook and walk and drive with our heads buried in our devices. We photograph disasters and post it to get likes. We unfriend people because they think differently than we.

‘THEY’ have us convinced we are less than human because we have odors and flakes. We aren’t good enough or smart enough to be anything but a worker bee. So be sure you have multiple jobs so you can afford the products you need because you smell.

Then Become Aware Of The BS Of Those Attempting To BS You

I mean really, we have swallowed this hook line and sinker. We need the next Iphone, the next latest gadget or big screen TV, too. We are consumers pursuing a dream, that is rising in cost, and one almost always out of our reach. We are told to keep buying and spending.

We aren’t told we are smart, intelligent, people who can make their lives a personal and professional success. We aren’t encouraged to become rich and free we are encourage to work hard and retire with a pension promised, but now taken away. It isn’t just the television.

It isn’t just the advertisers. This has become a way of life, of thinking, it permeates our culture. It is in our music, our books, our movies, our clothes, our make up, our parties and pastimes. We are just not ever told we are good enough and the news is WE ARE!

Become Aware And Free Yourself From The Illusions Of Mind

Only we have been hoodwinked and brainwashed to think otherwise. Our pockets empty while their pockets fill. Consider why, they lie. Then realize you don’t have to believe it or participate. You can choose to be different and find and live another way.

I am not suggesting you have to totally disconnect. I am only suggesting you realize that a war is waged for your mind. They want to own it, and so far they have, in so many ways. If they have your mind they have your pocketbook and vice versa. Time to break free.

Live and seek to live the good life of your own creation. Seek to think your own thoughts, not commercialized consumerism and psychological pathologies. Everyone is broken in their book. You’re not. You work perfectly well. You really do. Give yourself credit.

Wake Up To How Incredible You Are And The World Is

Yes, you and I have learned many useless and silly things. We learned to be stuck, to loathe certain things including ourselves. To fear odors and flakes, to desire the next best whatever it is. We learned to work hard at low paying jobs, and that we need more than one.

What we didn’t learn so well is that we were conditioned to be this way. We are conditioned to be citizens so we don’t put up a fuss. We toe the line, do as we are told, buy the products and the sugary drink and we do it all willingly because we didn’t know better. BUT!

We are beginning to awaken. We are beginning to see the seams in the fabric as it is pulled and pushed apart by social issues and unrest, that have remained festering for so many decades. We are waking up to see it is not all that pretty; the mess that has been made.

Celebrate – Delight – Learn – Laugh – Love – Live – Celebrate All

Hopefully, we wake up and recognize there is still a wonderful world, a wonderful people and wonderful opportunities ahead. It isn’t too late and there is still plenty of everything. We can awaken further and learn to get along and help each other instead of compete.

Competition and war are inbred like football and boxing is. We get further, and can better get along, serving and uplifting each other and going the extra mile to add value and respect than we can fighting each other and dividing up everything. Time to stop.

We need to stop labeling the behaviors of ourself and others as bad and begin to see the good. Encourage and emphasize that. Look for solutions that heal and help, that unite and bind. Seek a higher path, a nicer way. We can do this. It begins within each of us. You and I.

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

Time to wake! It is our responsibility, not someone else’s. It is time we take control of our thinking, feeling and behaving. Make certain it is the very best. Make it exemplary so that is a role model. Let’s become renewed and refreshed. Let’s learn to live, love, and laugh. Then we can change ourselves and the world. Yes! It is time to wake up! AND celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What The Question ‘What Do You Want?’ Does For You

Asking what do you want clarifies your thinking. It re-focuses you. It puts your attention on what you want and what you want to include. It takes your energy from what you don’t want and wish to exclude and re-focuses it. Get it? It shifts you from powerless to powerful.

It helps put you back in the driver’s seat and in charge of your own life. You can use it whenever you have a limiting thought, feeling or behavior. You can use it regarding events, circumstances and others. Let’s say the bank refuses your loan. Ask ‘What do I want?’

Of course you want the loan, but why? What are you attempting to accomplish? What is the larger goal? What are you wanting to feel? There may be other ways of legitimately getting the outcome or the money, without the loan or going through the bank. Understand?

Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes – Focus And Flow

It allows you to have a next step. You don’t have to know how it works out, but by asking ‘what do I want’ you focus your attention and energy on what is truly important. From there you may get other insights and ideas, flashes of intuition, if you listen.

When arguing with a loved one, remember to ask, ‘is this what I want? WHAT do I want?’ You can decide, ‘No. I want to get along. I want both of us to feel loved. I want to communicate with each other better. What do I want? I want to get along!’ That can change you!

When you go back to what you want and what is important to you, it focuses the energy on THAT instead of the argument. Get it? You refocus. You determine what is important to you and you seek to make that happen for both parties. YOU change the situation.

You Get What You Focus On – What You Focus On Expands

You shift things by making your internal adjustments. You don’t blame, whine, accuse, excuse yourself or the other, instead look for the positive, good you can focus on, that changes you and helps improve the situation for both of you. Get it? You shift and change it.

It gives you the means to get out of being stuck in non-productive, even repetitive, mental and behavioral loops. If you keep doing the same thing, hoping for different results, that IS the definition of insanity. If you want change, you must make changes. Get it?

It is up to you. Re-focus your energy. What do you want? Clarify and determine what is positive and supportive that will help you get what you want. What is it that is good for you and for others? Focus on making these changes along the way. Are you getting this?

Your Mind Is Powerful – Fill It With Positivity – And You’ll Change

Most likely, you will need to ask it, or do it, more than once. Trust me! You will. You can ask moment to moment. Every time you engage in a new behavior you can ask. When driving to work, how do you want it to go? You could think, ‘I want a safe, enjoyable drive’.

Listen to your answers. What do you want from your meal? ‘I want my body, mind and spirit to easily process this wonderful meal and fill me up nutritionally’. Or. ‘I want to maintain my ideal weight’ so you adjust what you eat and how much. Get it? Use the question.

Use it to guide you moment to moment. In any situation alone, or with others you can ask. Clarify, then move forward, once you have. This question, and the others I gave you, can be a real game changer when you routinely apply them to your life. So don’t stay the same.

Direct Your Mind Where You Want To Travel – It Will Take You

Especially, if you don’t want to. If you want to grow and evolve and make positive changes, using these questions can move you ahead more easily and quickly. So too, can practicing gratitude and understanding that each of life’s many moments are blessings. So celebrate everything!: Rex Sikes

What Do You Want?

“Are you thinking and feeling and acting positive, or not? It’s important to consider. You want to be. Here is the next crucial question you ask, to move you closer to getting what you want. ‘What do I want?’ You can ask this moment to moment.

‘Is this what I want?’ You ask this repeatedly. Whatever happens, whatever results you get, whatever thoughts, feelings and actions you make, question yourself and ask, ‘Is this what I want?’ or ‘what do I want?’ Clarify what you want by asking ‘what do I want?’

Get it? Make certain you are moving in a positive direction. Each moment you can ask, ‘is this what I want?’ If it isn’t, ask, ‘what DO I want?’ Use it to change your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Direct yourself continuously to the positive good you DO want. Get it?

Direct Your Mind Positively – Ask Questions To Clarify Your Wants

If you aren’t getting what you want, stop. Stop spending your time re-creating what you don’t want. Change it! Move in the direction of getting what you do want. If you think, ‘I can’t do this’ is that what you want to think? NO! Think instead, ‘I can learn to do this.’

Get it? ‘I can look for someone who can assist me in learning how to do this. I can learn to make it happen alone or with coaching. I can begin to do this. I can begin to move forward and make it happen.’ Affirm and visualize what you want to happen. Direct YOUR mind!

This question is important. It is so powerful! It stops you. If you aren’t getting what you want, why would you ever continue? Right? It illuminates the chronic, conditioned, habitual thoughts, feelings and behaviors so you can become aware and change. It illuminates!

Whether You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You Are Right

It brings attention to your answers, which are your thoughts, beliefs and limiting beliefs. Whenever you discover you are limiting yourself, excusing, blaming, or whining, too, you can stop. Then begin to change them. If you don’t want that belief, what one do you want?

Get it? Are you with me? Is it making sense? Watch this!  You must ask it frequently. ‘Am I getting what I want? What do I want?’ I am providing some variations, but the point remains the same. Stop doing what you don’t want. Change it to what you want! GET IT?

Develop the habit of being your own best, positive, supportive friend who helps you move towards your goals and dreams. Realize at  any moment you, and your behaviors, thoughts and feelings are either positive, supportive and moving you closer to your goals OR not!

We’re Living And Growing Or Withering And Dying – Choose

Get it?  I really hope you will. I am driving home an important point. You determine the success and happiness you will experience by how you think about things AND the questions you ask yourself. You always have been, even if you didn’t know or assume responsibility.

You have been creating everything all along by what you think and do. Time to take charge and decide how you want things to be, instead of haphazardly creating things, as you have in the past. Sometimes you got good results. Sometimes you got unwanted ones.

Now you can direct your thinking and feeling and actions to ensure you create AND attract only that which you DO want. GET IT? I hope so. ‘What am I grateful for?’  is another excellent question! Ask it a lot. Emphasize gratitude and feeling blessed. Direct your mind. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Success And Happiness Is Determined By How You Think!

“In recent blogs, I taught and I encouraged you to ask, ‘does this support me? Is this supportive or non-supportive?’ A very important consideration. Something either supports and uplifts you, or it does not. I snuck in another question, too. Perhaps, you noticed it.

If something is not supportive, ‘what can I change; what thought, feeling or behavior?’ If you discover your thoughts aren’t supporting you, then you should, you must change them, to supportive ones that help get you the results you want. Awareness, then shifting, is key!

If you do something that makes you feel bad, you want to change it to something that makes you feel good. Realize, you should have a conscience too. You ought to do what is best for you and everyone involved. I am never suggesting you do anything to harm anyone.

Whether You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You’re Right

That includes you and others. Be sensitive and be good to all. Another consideration, prior to getting into the next question I share, is this question? Is it positive or negative? If something is negative and doesn’t support you, change it? Focus on the positive.

You get what you focus on. You want a better life? You don’t get one by focusing on negativity, what is wrong or lacking. You make your life better by focusing on those positive thoughts, feelings and actions you can take, to get you positive and better results. Get it?

The point of these questions I am sharing, is to bring your awareness to the moment. Is what is going positive or negative? Does it support you or not? What change can you make to your thinking, feeling or behaving that will shift it from negative to positive and supportive?

Change Your Mindset And You Change Your Life – Be Positive

More next time. For now keep focused and keep asking. Stay tuned to what you are grateful for. This combination of gratitude and positivity, with questions that direct  you into being and feeling supportive, is unstoppable. Make it your new habit. Master it. It is amazing. Celebrate everything! Rex Sikes

You Must Stop First Before You Move On!

What can you ask yourself that makes an incredible difference and sets you in the right direction to create, and attract, your goals and dreams? I  provided two answers in my recent blog. Now I’ll share with you some more powerful suggestions to utilize daily.

Questions direct the mind. In order for them to direct your mind in a positive way YOU actually have to STOP and then ask the question. Do this whenever you notice yourself thinking, feeling or behaving in less than positive, glorious, good ways. Stop and ask.

It isn’t about getting an answer. Forget about seeking the answer. It’s ALL about asking the right question. It’s all about directing your mind. It’s all about becoming aware of whether you’re moving closer or farther away from what you want, while taking right action.

Change Your Mindset And You Change Your Life

You have to stop asking negative questions. Stop asking, ‘why things don’t work out?’ Stop asking ‘why you can never get ahead, or are broke, or unlucky in life and love’! Stop asking questions that cause you to feel worse. Do you get it? You really need to shift mindset.

Ask ones that cause you to become positive, powerful and change! I gave you two last time. Use them. I’ll share one or two more. For now, ask the positive questions that direct your mind in powerful and positive ways. Spiral up into positivity, not down into negativity!

Not everything is positive or supportive. We react to ‘hot buttons and triggers. We’re conditioned; habitual. The only way you break free and transform yourself is to become aware. You have to notice when you are caught up and acting from old, chronic programs.

You Won’t Change And Make Progress Without Making Decisions

You must stop. Take a break, a pause, a breath and then start the new program. Think of driving your car, When you realize you are moving in the wrong direction, you stop, and turn around. Get it? You discontinue traveling in the old way. You stop, and shift or turn.

You begin moving in the direction you want to be traveling in. Same thing with training your mind to work for you instead of against you. You must become aware. Awareness is the  doorway to change. You must BECOME AWARE, notice what isn’t working, and change it.

Change it to something that works better. Think, feel, and act better by asking yourself the questions I have been sharing with you. You stop and DECIDE to be, do and have things differently, YOU make A decision and follow through with it! That is how you TRANSFORM!

Distance Yourself From Negativity And Beautiful Things Happen

In my upcoming blogs I share other powerful questions you can ask to make an incredible difference for you. Stay reading. Keep using the material I have shared with you. Practice gratitude. Stay feeling appreciative and blessed by all of it. Be thankful. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Must Stop Vomiting On People!

“Does what we say matter? Does it matter to others? Does it matter to ourselves? From early times to present there’s a wealth of wise people pointing out that what we say shapes our reality. We think it and then speak it into being. What we talk about we bring about.

What we think about we bring about is an important notion. Recently, at a meeting I attended, a devout Christian stood up and quoted Proverbs 18:20. ‘A man’s belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; With the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied.’

I don’t care whether you believe the Bible or not. That is not the purpose of my posts. Whatever you choose to believe or not, is up to you . Your faith is yours. I simply want to point out what all faiths and new thought leaders and thinkers have pointed out for eons.

Words Are Seeds – Be Careful What You Plant And What You Say

What we think about we bring about. What we say is what we get. The quote above is easily understood as what we say is important. What we repeatedly talk about IS what we think about. It IS what we feel about. It is what we create and experience and attract.

We can’t escape that we are responsible for our situations in life. The stories we tell daily about what happens to us, affect us. Most of us love drama. We want to tell others how we are used, abused, mistreated here, there, on the freeway, in the home and office.

By friends and by strangers; we talk about what we don’t want. We keep that morning commute skirmish alive throughout the day by repeating the tale to all who will listen. ‘Let me tell you what happened to me today!’ Blah Blah Blah we verbally vomit on others.

Life Is A Boomerang – What You Give Out You Get Back

We talk about the banks, big biz and government, gossip and the latest bad news on the internet. Our focus in not on the good we can create. We aren’t talking about how good things are, how easy it is, how beautiful life’s moments are and the many ways we are blessed.

This, however, is what we should endorse and repeat. We should speak only to bless, heal and prosper ourselves and others. Put a guard before your lips. Only command into being those things you want to bring into being! Stop talking about what is wrong!

Start talking about what is right. Practice gratitude and appreciation. Be thankful. Whatever you are talking about YOU ARE thinking about. What you think about you become. Get it? Instead, start feeling blessed and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Are Governed By What You Don’t Know!

“Not everything is the same. Some things matter far more than other things. ‘Well, yes’, you say, ‘that’s obvious.’ BUT is it? Some things that are truly important, and run the show, are those things we aren’t aware of. We are governed by what we don’t know.

Not all thoughts are equal. Some are random thoughts that come and go. It is the ongoing, chronic thoughts inside, and outside, of your awareness that have the power. What are you thinking that you are not aware of? What do you repeatedly think day in and day out?

It is these thoughts that make the difference. Since, at least, the early 90’s I have pointed out that we think about 65,000 thoughts a day. Upwards of 90%, some estimate between 95-99%, of those thoughts are the same today as we thought yesterday. Imagine that.

We First Make Our Habits – Then Our Habits Make Us

There’s not much in the way of new thinking in us, is there?  You can’t track 65,000 thoughts. Most operate unconsciously, subconsciously outside of your awareness but happen reliably, automatically just the same. These are habitual thoughts. Chronically negative, too.

Habitual thoughts determine our reality. Right this instant we are right where our thoughts have brought us. Tomorrow, we’ll be where our thoughts take us. If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. You will be the same tomorrow.

Unless you change your thinking!  If, on a scale of 1-10 your life is a ten, then you should keep doing what you are doing. However, if you are off by any number, you might want to change some things and change your life for the better. It is the only way to change!

What Unconsciously Consumes Your Mind Controls You Life

Why the photo above? The water looks lovely. In the water are countless living organisms we can’t see. They are there, living, but we don’t know. There is lots of other stuff hidden in the depths of the water. The water is teeming with things unknown and unseen.

Your habits govern you. Subconscious, chronic limited thinking keeps you limited. You must uncover, release and let go your negative thinking. You must shift your conscious, and unconscious thinking, to be mostly positive and powerful. Can’t stay the same.

You need positive, supportive thought habits. If you aren’t living the life you want, I want to help you create your best life, ever. That is why I write this blog and conduct seminars, workshops and training. You must learn to control and manage your thoughts and feelings.

You Can’t Control Behaviors If You Can’t Control Your Thoughts

When calamity, or bad situation, occurs it triggers old memories, associations, and negative neural-net habits of thought, feeling and action. You must change these to be better. You want triggers to release good, positive, powerful thoughts instead of the bad.

Gratitude is a wonderful place to begin. Become thankful for everything. Focus on gratitude. Increase it. Be thankful. Express it. Speak it and write it. Think about it and delight. Join me in deciding to make your life the best life ever. Start now. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
