Christmas in July…?

Santa ClausSaint Nick messed us up.  Big time.

If you want something as a child, you either ask your parents, grandparents, or that guy at the mall called Santa Claus. And (assuming you’ve been “good”) you’ll actually get it! Great deal, huh? Want something. Get results.

We didn’t know it then, but “we was had!”

When you grow up, this process no longer works. While it makes sense as a child to expect that your cuteness will bring “stuff,” as an adult, you are no longer as cute. In fact, you must often work hard for what you get! Many people, however, continue to follow this “desire = results” pattern as adults in the form of positive thinking and affirmations and expect the world to support these desires. Further, they refuse to look at the reality of the situation and change.

I call this adult affliction “The Santa Claus Theory of Reality.”

Actually, the Santa Claus approach may still work . . . if you’re a CEO and have a staff of people working for you.  But even here, you’ve already laid the foundation for the results to happen!

If you are NOT a CEO or have folks doing your bidding, you must begin the manifestation process using practical approaches that involve concrete belief, thought and action.  Otherwise nothing constructive will happen.

TRUTH ALERT   

If you believe that sincere hope, prayer, or the Law of Attraction will save you, forget it. The Law of Attraction will give you results based on what you believe inside . . . not on some fanciful idea of prosperity or theory of manifestation based on your imagined wants or needs.

Your subconscious mind – like Santa Claus – knows when you’ve been bad or good . . so be good, for goodness sakes!!

In my practice I often come face to face with those who still believe in Santa Claus.  It is then my job to help my patients or clients see that belief alone will not do it.  The reason some people are able to accomplish their goals in life is because the strength of their deepest thoughts and desires matches their actions.

Bringing a client to a place where he or she can manifest thought and desire requires that I help them discover their inner strength, and to focus on where they are and where they want to be.   Once they stop being weak and scattered,  they are transformed and amazing things begin to happen!

Here’s how it works… 

If your innermost self (subconscious) is conflicted about a thought or desire, your results will be conflicted as well.

On the other hand,  if your Soul (or true self) is dynamic, strong, and clear, it naturally follows that your thoughts, desires, actions, and results will follow. It all comes down to who you ARE . . . not who you think you are!

Manifestation has little or nothing to do with who you’d like to be, or who other people think you are – but who you truly are at the deepest level.

Next week I’ll go over how the mind actually works to deliver both good – and not so good – results.  Stay tuned 🙂

[EZINE] One Secret about Men Women don’t know…

Hi – Here’ more men-women stuff…

(Sorry I didn’t follow up on this last week, but the holiday needed a comment or two…)

Soma and I were having a discussion about our upcoming book yesterday, and I casually mentioned that I and most other men feel the need to just stop talking after a certain time – usually around 6-8 pm.  

Apparently she did not know that we guys run our of things to say after we’ve used up our “word quota”. . .   

Its true.  Say a man’s WQ is 16,000 words a day.  Once we hit that number, say goodbye to any further conversation!  Most guys need “Cave Time,” usually after dinner . . . and lots of women don’t understand this.  

Because he doesn’t talk, women assume he’s just stupid – at least for the time being – or doesn’t love her.  And a women feeling not loved is a powder keg leading to major discord.   

The man, however, is just is sitting in his cave, feeling all comfy. If a woman comes at him (because she doesn’t feel loved), he simply tags her as “crazy,” then tunes her out as best he can.   

Now, obviously, this WQ thing will vary from man to man, but the general rule applies.  If a man engages in daytime work that doesn’t require a lot of conversation, he’s free to use more words at night.  His wife or girlfriend, then, would assume he is just like her all the time . . . and forget to back off during the times he uses up his WQ.

Men’s brains apparently are wired to process information in a sequential manner, i.e., one thought at a time.  Women, however, are more wired for multi-processing and can say and do multiple things at a time (this comes in handy for raising kids!)  

So Men  – you’re not really stupid.

And Women –  you don’t have to feel crazy.

Life is that way sometimes.

More fun facts next week,

[EZINE] July 4th was bad for this President…

logical soul ezine

 

 

Dr. Michael Craig,   Vol. 5, #26 – July 4, 2017

Happy 4th of July!  While you are enjoying your hot dogs and fireworks, there is a little known danger lurking in plain sight that already killed one president, and knocked yours truly for a loop as well!

What danger…?  Fireworks?  Guns?  Car accidents?

No.  I’m talking about food poisoning.

In case you haven’t noticed, the weather in the northern hemisphere in July is usually very hot.  And hot weather spoils food faster than the final stretch of the Indianapolis 500!

This was also the case back in 1850 in Washington DC when President Zachary Taylor scarfed down a bowl or two of milk and cherries for a hot July 4th treat.  He developed intestinal bacterial food poisoning (the doctors then called it “cholera morbus”) and died 5 days later at age 65, only 16 months into his presidency.  Ouch.

I’m about the same age as Old “Rough and Ready” was when he died, and I too got food poisoning from eating cereal yesterday morning with some milk that tasted “funny.”  Fortunately for me, I had some Lugol’s iodine, some cleansing herbs and routines, and lots of Advil to get me back on my feet in a day.   Whew.  

Refrigerate Those Suckers

Word to the wise:  Keep perishable food in the fridge and always check the expiration date!  The bad milk I drank was beyond that date by several weeks.  That, plus hunger and momentary stupidity, knocked me off my feet for over 24 hours.

While antibiotics or a good cleanse can knock it out these days, the resulting agony from bacteria running wild in the meantime is scary.  So why take a chance? 

July 4th History and Trivia

The fourth has a long history and is worth checking out.
