Making Magic Happen on ESPN

Monday, August 30th, 2010

If you believe in coincidences, superstition or any of that jazz – you’ll love today’s message. Read on.

Twas “Game of the Week” last night at Tropicana Field – and what a game it was.

For the first four innings it was basically a pitcher’s duel. Then, in the fourth inning I received a text message from a friend and client living in Pennsylvania. He asked if I was at the game. I told him I was.

He wanted to see proof so I told him to wait til my buddy, Carlos Pena, was up to bat.

At first he couldn’t see me so I walked right in front of the camera and “sent some love” as Pena smashed his 25th home run of the year, giving the Rays a 1-0, lead.

After several hi-5’s I went back to my seat. My friend texted me to say he had me captured on his DVR, looking right at Carlos as he smashed his home run. He then told me to “stay in my seat” the rest of the game as his Yankees need the Rays to lose. He said it was no coincidence that he clobbered the ball right when I had my back to him.

Ah, come on.

A nice stroke for the ego – but I ain’t buying it.

But then, two innings later, when the Rays were up to bat, my son, Frank demanded, “GET OUT OF YOUR SEAT, DADDY.”

So I got up again and Carl Crawford smashed a 2-run shot as I was looking at him.

Another round of Hi-5’s.

Another coincidence.

My friend in PA texted me, “I told you to stay in your seat.”

And today, Pete, another Yankees fan wrote me the following:

“Every time you left your seat the RAYS would score, the big three run rally happened right after we seen you walk down the ramp. Great game too, our game Saturday was the best though as the walk off Home run was special.”

All of this begs the question: Can you send someone positive energy with a glance, a stare, a breath – or even a thought and have the person do well?

I think so.

In fact, I teach so.

8 Days ago I taught a class on healing people remotely – something I thought I would NEVER, EVER teach. And the response was out of this world.

Yes, sending someone LOVE can have a positive effect. You can even heal by sending love. These things are scientifically validated.

Even so, remember this: The person you send LOVE to is still the one who
hits the HR’s – not you.

At the same time, never forget that everyone needs LOVE and encouragement and praise. No matter how big he is or how well he’s done in the past – in this present moment – he can use some.

Keep this in mind today in your home and office. And if you go to the ball field – send those players your best.

P.S. If the idea of remote healing is something you’d like to learn – let me know and I’ll consider creating a course on it. In the interim, you still need to lay the foundation with Zero Resistance Living – the advanced course in Psycho-Cybernetics.

Hot Turned Cold

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Last night I was at the Rays v. Rangers ball game. It promised to be one of the greatest match-ups ever.

Two lefties: David Price and Cliff Lee.

What looked great on paper was even better in person.

Then Price, some 109 pitches into the game, lost his touch and had to be removed. Meanwhile, Lee looked like he’d go the full 9 innings, especially because he had only tossed 66 pitches through seven innings.

In the 8th inning I got up and headed to the back room to get a jump on the traffic. Also, I must admit, because the Rays were down 4-2 – and Lee looked unstoppable.

But in the previous Rangers at bat, Lee sat on the bench for 30 minutes as the Rays tried one pitcher after another, doing their best to keep the game close. So when Cliff Lee re-entered the game, even though he’d only thrown 66 pitches, something was totally off.

The Rays bats suddenly came alive and they worked him over like eggs in a blender. Next thing you know and the 4-2 Rangers lead was now a 6-4 Rays advantage.

What happened?

Lee’s arm went cold. He had too much rest.

There’s a saying, “Rest is rust.”

And there’s some truth to it.

In baseball, keeping a pitcher’s arm hot is crucial.

In life, keeping yourself hot is even more crucial.

Sometimes you need rest to regain your form. At other times you need to get off your duff and move, move, move. Wisdom is knowing which is which.

This past summer I rested my writing muscles for a little over two months. I’ve never done that before. For 15 years I’ve written everyday. I’ve also heard other writers claim that you should never rest.

At times I wondered if they were right. Would I lose my ‘mojo’ from the lack of putting words in print every single day?

Something inside told me that I’d be alright – that I’d come back stronger – and better.

That something was a mental image of myself as a writer. If I’d done it before, I can do it again.

Even big league pitchers have an off-season. They also rest three to four games after a start.

Sometimes their arm can go cold in a game. Likewise, after writing for an hour or so – your thoughts can get de-focused. When this happens, it’s time to change gears and do something else. It’s time to remove yourself from the game – and return the next day when you’re ready and rested.

Go for a walk. Do some stretching. Or practice Theatre of the Mind.

Anything that gets you back into your success grove.

Now that I’m back… and rested – I have some great updates to tell you about. They’ll be coming your way soon – so make sure you stay tuned.
