What You Believe Can Kill You! Ask Mr. Wright. Ooops, You Can’t He Is Dead.

“The Placebo Effect states simply, if you believe something will benefit you, then it’s possible, and likely, it will. The Nocebo Effect states simply, if you think it will harm you, or have no effect, then it’s possible, and likely, it will. These effects  are well researched.

There is a famous real-life story about the placebo effect and Mr Wright. I shared this in an earlier blog post a while back. Mr. Wright believed a drug his doctor could get would save him based on what he read about in the press. His doctor administered a placebo.

The doctor told him he was getting the medicine he thought would help. His condition improved. Later, he read in the newspaper the ‘miracle drug’ didn’t work. His condition deteriorated. His doctor convinced him otherwise and his condition again improved.

You Are Today Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You

Later, he read the drug was a hoax. He died. Both the Placebo and Nocebo effect were at work. They are always at work about everything. We are always thinking. It isn’t just in medicine, but that is where the effect became obviously known. Look it up.

People have believed in all sorts of things and found help. Lourdes, amulets, faith healers, Voodoo healing and Voodoo curses, the Evil Eye. The list is endless. If you believe a food or practice is healthy for you it is likely it can be, even if it isn’t. Your beliefs may make it so.

If you believe it is harmful, it too, can be likely, even if it isn’t. If you believe it will add weight to you or help you shed pounds, then too, it is possible. It is all about what you believe! Nothing is locked in stone. Our beliefs determine our reality more than the other way.

You Will Be Tomorrow Where Your Thoughts Take You

I am not suggesting you can or should do anything believing the opposite. It is about what you actually, truly. already believe is or isn’t possible. Snake handlers have demonstrated success and failure with this concept of faith. Don’t test your faith this way. It’s stupid.

Be wise about it. If you decide you will only eat sugar laden chocolate cake and that it will be healthy for you and you will lose weight, it is possible. It may or may not be likely so don’t be surprised if it works or doesn’t. Don’t try to make a sows ear into a silk purse.

If you are surprised it works you didn’t believe it to begin with. If it doesn’t work, you may not have actually believed that it would. You won’t fly believing you can, so don’t walk off a high ledge. That isn’t what this effect is about. Still, it can powerfully assist you.

You Cannot Escape The Power Of Your Thoughts

It can assist you in healing and in accomplishing your goals when you believe you are able to and will. Mindset first and foremost, then everything else can fall in place. Placebo works well together with medicine that works and Nocebo works against the same medicine.

This revolves around one of my favorite, and most powerful, quotes by Henry Ford, ‘If you think you can or you think you can’t you are right.’ What you believe tends to determine how far you will go. If you believe you can, then it is possible, but it isn’t written in stone.

You still have to make it happen. However, if you believe you can’t then you may not even bother to attempt it. Get it? You determine your future by how you think about it. You determine your past and present in the very same manner. What you believe matters!

Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge

Whatever IS, is up to you. This is why I say consider everything a blessing because things can change when you do. Get it? Anything and everything is always up to you! No one else, but you! You determine whether you will make something happen. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Are You Willing To Create A Possibility That Can End Your Suffering And Revolutionize Your Life?

A fellow friend shared this quote, which I too share, because I think is important: “After all, if you focus on the known, you get the known. If you focus on the unknown, you create a possibility.” Joe Dispenza

Whether or not you agree with this quote, or my my words regarding possibility, my point is, open the door to go beyond the known and into the unknown. We don’t know what we don’t know. Most of us never ever come to realize that important point!

Mostly, we assert that which we already know and then defend that. That doesn’t move us forward. The reason science can move forward is because science, hopefully, seeks to discover if what is possible. Benevolent science attempts to improve our lives and conditions.

Minds Are Like Parachutes – Must I Repeat The Rest…

Good science actually goes out of its way to prove something isn’t the case. If it can’t be disproved, it  is tacitly accept it as a possibility. A theory is only a description of how things may be. It is only a description, which gets replaced when a better one is arrived at.

Even science can be fraught with politics and deceit. That is why I used the words benevolent and good. Even some well meaning ‘good and benevolent’ scientists can become entrenched in dogma and forget the basic tenants and methodology. Anything is possible.

Anyone can have a closed mind and be dismissive. It takes rigor and discipline to maintain an open mind to look for answers even in the ridiculous. Kudos to those who do and who pave the way for future thought and action! Stay open. Discover what is possible and likely!

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

Create possibility for yourself. Always expect, believe and know that something good is going to happen. Realize that in your darkest hour all things pass and give way. Things change. A new day is coming. Create the possibility to be, do and have whatever you desire.

Consider everything a blessing and it will be. Life is glorious when you don’t hold onto what hurts you. Life is incredible when one let’s go of resistance. If a door closes another always opens. If you know where to look, you will find it. Keep the faith. Stay open to all good things. Anything is possible when you believe it to be. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Do You Hate Rich People?

“There is a meme, infographic going around, with a quote attributed to Jodi Foster that reads, ‘Attacking the rich is not envy. It is self defense. The hoarding of wealth is the cause of poverty. The rich are just indifferent to poverty. They create it and maintain it.’

First, let me say I don’t know if Jodi said this or not. I agree that hoarding of wealth does create and helps maintain poverty and I do think there are some with that purpose in their hearts and minds. There are some nefarious people on our planet to be certain.

BUT WHOA! Not all rich. We need to choose our words more carefully than that. There are some extremely fine, philanthropic rich – then there are some filthy predators. Not all rich people are the same. This is disingenuous stereotyping of wealthy people.

You Are Today Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You

The issue is not riches!  The issue is, IS the rich person an asshole? That is what this is about. It isn’t about all rich people but rich people who hoard and prevent others from attaining wealth. Yes, there are certainly plenty of those types of people. Not all rich are like that!

Rule of thumb; if they are rich and an asshole, they were an asshole before they got rich. Money is an amplifier for the most part. It reflects WHO you are. What you do with it reveals your inner workings. Money is merely a tool. Don’t blame a hammer.

Focus on the person who is corrupted but not the tool. If you think about it accurately, there are far fewer rich people in the world, especially uber rich people, than there are poor people. One could say there are a whole lot more poor assholes than rich ones.

You Will Be Tomorrow Where Your Thoughts Today Take You

If you just went by the numbers. That would be wrong. It would be misleading. Stop looking at numbers of dollars one has and look at whether the person is good or not. Anyone can be nice or anyone can be an ass. What does the person use their money for?

I wish people would stop making it about the amount and start making it about the type of person who has it.  Anyone can be a good human being or they can be a problem human being, rich or poor. Anyone can be an asshole.

They come in all sizes, genders, colors, religions, backgrounds, political persuasions.  Remember, AND KEEP THIS IN MIND: it is not money that is the root of all evil! IT IS the LOVE of money that is the root of all evil. PLEASE note this! Really, note this! Get it?

You Cannot Escape The Power Of Your Thoughts

You will never find or make yourself rich if you dislike rich people. Your brain will never let you accomplish that. You will remain poor or stuck, wherever you are at, simply due to cognitive dissonance. To make money, you must want to have money! Therein lies the rub.

You must really want it badly to make it happen. It requires mindset and action. Napoleon Hill pointed out that you must make making money an obsession. You must THINK and grow rich. Then when riches begin to come to you they will come very quickly.

However, as Hill also  pointed out toward the end of his life, if all you want is money you are bound to be screwed up. He said most of the uber wealthy he knew, and their families, were screwed up for this reason.  Money was god. He said this of the 519 people he modeled.

For The Love Of Money Is The Root Of All Evil

He studied 520 of the world’s wealthiest men in his day and he said only ONE wasn’t screwed up. Only one had peace of mind because he realized at some point that you need balance. You need peace. There are other things more important than JUST money! Get it?

Many of today’s predatory profiteers haven’t learned this lesson yet. They may never. That is not sufficient reason to dislike all people who have wealth. Nor should you dislike riches. Simply seek balance. Understand people matter more than profits. People come first!

Family, friends, relationships, life, fun, time and other things are more important. At the end of your life, it won’t matter if you get another dollar. What is likely to matter will be how you spent life alone and with the people who matter to you. Keep this in mind!

What You Focus On Expand – You Get What You Think About

Enjoy wealth. Use it to better yourself, others and the planet. Give to others. Act with compassion. Help transform the globe for good through your wealth. You can reach more and do more when rich than when poor. That is just the way it is! So be a good rich person and make a real difference in a positive way. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

All Work And No Play Makes You Dull: Have Fun!

“All work and no play makes Jack and Jill dull. While it is important to focus on your goals, have white-hot obsession and persistence in pursuit of making these happen, it is equally important to play and have fun. Delight! Let go. Enjoy the many magical moments daily.

Play serves useful purposes. We learn while we play. While off doing other enjoyable activities our brains continue to process, work on, review and incorporate our learning and efforts. Muscles need a break from work out to grow and we do to from ‘striving’. Get it?

Have fun. Play. Become fascinated. Be curious. Be a little kid. Feel thrilled, delighted and enthused. Vibe high. More magic happens when you enjoy being blessed and live passionately. Live as if every moment is a miracle. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Stop Screwing Everything Up!

“When considering you, circumstances, other people, all events and your life there is something you must stop doing if you want to get ahead and accomplish you goals and dreams. If you want to make your dreams come true you need to make some important changes.

First, you absolutely must stop victim mentality! Stop putting any energy or attention on your “story” of why things are tough, bad, not happening or causing you problems. Drop this thinking like a hot potato! It perpetuates the problems! It doesn’t lead to achievement.

Stop it! Let it go. Put a guard before your thoughts and lips. Speak only what you want and about what is positive. Put your energy into describing what you want to bring about, not why you can’t. Control your self talk and what you tell, share or discuss, with others!

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

Problem thinking is self-defeating and it is self-fulfilling. Get it? Stop creating more of the problem life you want to eliminate and start creating the life you want. Accentuate the positive. Energy flows where your attention goes. Speak only to bless, heal and prosper!

Tell a new and different story. Stop blaming and excusing and living as a victim. Live as a victor! Life is a process, not frozen. Reframe events and circumstances. Assign a different meaning to behaviors you don’t appreciate in self or other. You are learning and evolving.

Focus on what you want. Talk about it as if you are already making it happen and you already have it! Learn to live, speak and ‘act as if’ it is already your reality. What you think about you bring about. Start finding the silver linings and blessing in all. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Write Out Your Affirmations This Way!

“One of the best things you can do daily is to write out your affirmations by hand. Use pen and paper. Every morning, as part of your daily ritual, write down the affirmations you are working on. Word them the same each day. Repeat daily and keep doing this.

THIS is a powerful way to communicate with your subconscious and get it to accept the beliefs you are working on. Use present tense when writing. ‘I am magnificent’. If you can’t yet believe that, then write out, ‘I am in the process of learning I am magnificent!’

Or, ‘I am beginning to learn how truly magnificent I am’. Writing these down helps you to more fully imagine your desire and wires it in by using your body. It is not just imagined visually or spoken words but physically wired it in. Always feel enthused while you’re doing it.

The More We Do The More We Are Able To Do

When on the road, driving safely, you can shout and chant and sing your affirmations powerfully. The more emotion you infuse them with the more powerful they become. Our emotions drive everything. So use your most joyous and powerful emotions to do it.

Have fun. Make it daily practice. First thing in morning, along with your other morning practices, is a great time to feed your mind. Do your rituals at the same time each day. Make it a sacred practice.  Enjoy the process! You can also do it any other time during the day and before bed. Feel wonderful! Feel grateful! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Morning Time Is The Best Time

“When you rise and greet the day cheerfully you set the tone for the rest of your day. That’s the goal. You want to have each day be the best day it can be. You want to think and feel your best. Vibe high from the get go and the rest follows suit. Remember, mindset first.

Looking over your written goals is a great morning ritual habit to have is to take a few minutes to   Imagine you have already brought them into being. You have already manifested them. Visualize and feel what it is like to already being living what you want. Enjoy this.

Really enjoy the feelings of having accomplished your goal! Live the future right now in the present. You can even look back and see what actions you took to bring it about.  Focus on how good it feels to be living your dream and having made what you wanted happen. Imagine it vividly. Spend a few moments lingering in all the good feelings. Then go about your day. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
