Hit by an angel or maybe not

Excerpt from soon to be released "Wide Asleep" Tate publishing 2008

Have you ever wondered why you are here on this planet? Sounds like a simple enough question almost foolish. Everyday in someway angels bring us messages.

You might be thinking I just left Starbucks with my Venti Latte and I did not see or feel any angels hovering about.
Look back and think did you put a tip in the tip jar? Giving is living. For me the more I give the more I get to keep.

How about when someone cuts you off in traffic? Do you feel violated and angry? How could they do that to me? Or do you just let it go and realize that this person driving that vehicle is like many in our world just rushing, rushing, and rushing to where? The grave of course.

Be grateful that the driver did not hit you and you had the mental faculties and maybe a guardian angel to adapt to the situation and maintain control of your vehicle.

Negative co-workers are angels also. They can knock you flat on your butt if you let them. What can I learn from their actions? How can I heal or help them without them knowing.

Negative co-workers are like angry customers if you run a business.

They are gifts from the angels.

Or a better way to say it is these can be tools to improve yourself, your business, or your performance.

What we learn from them may enhance our own lives.
How I see people is how I treat them and how I treat them is how they become.
As far as Starbucks, I personally have never had a negative experience with them। Maybe that is because I NEVER EXPECTED TO.

The last time I left Iraq in 2004 it was all I could do to keep from getting locked up or as they say in L.A. 5150 which means your nuts. On the flight out of Kuwait the attendants knew I was a bit stressed and I was talking to one of them and she took me in the back of the aircraft where they all where staying. They nurtured me and never left me alone. Maybe they were afraid, I doubt it, and I think they saw a wounded soul hurting like I had never hurt before. Yes I should’ve been evacuated to Landstuhl in Germany but I disliked hospitals because they always want to keep me for further evaluation.

Besides I was a civilian now and I don’t even know how I got on that flight to the U.S. but I did and I resigned as soon as I got home. So no psych ward for me.

What did I learn?

There are angels everywhere.

We can be angels if we choose to.

Life is a gift, a great blessing.

There are many stories I could tell about getting hit by angels from Africa,

Germany and even my own house.

Have I seen real angels? Yes.

I mean really felt the presence of and seen real angels? Yes.

Did I think I was out of my mind? Yes.

Do you believe in angels?

I have found that I like to have faith in angels.

It feels better than no faith at all.

Look for your angels.

What about the Faith of a mustard seed?

The seed does not doubt it just grows. And so do we.

Back of the Rack My Brain Music

For some odd reason every song I like has a meaning or a memory for me. I am listening to a play list on Myspace. As I write this "Burning For You" by Blue Oyster Cult is playin. The song takes me back to being a private in the army and eating a greasy burger after being up 24 hours in Germany. The song was playing on a jukebox in Hanau, Germany in 1982.

I was interviewed Sunday night by Author Allen Hooker (an outstanding person) who is writing a book on Military people who "have made a difference."
He was asking me questions about different things in my career and life। Almost every incident we discussed had a musical anchor tied to it to it.

"Thunderstruck" by AC/DC takes me to "The Battle of Mogadishu" Oct 3 1993।

Night Moves by Bob Segar takes me to Ohio in the 70's when I lost my innocence to a blonde beauty। 1976.

"I Miss You" by Everything But The Girl takes me to a fabulous underground soju bar in Pusan Korea 1994-1995.
In a previous blog I talk about a song called "The Rooster" by Alice in Chains. There are so many more, you get the picture

When you are in a high emotional peak state, anything you hear, touch, taste or think becomes a Psychological Anchor or Trigger.

The human mind processes about 15 bits of information per second. The subconscious mind processes anywhere from 15 to 40 million bits per second.

Advertisers know the power of this (repetition is the mother of skill) and so does every highly successful person I know. As you look at your emails, myspace, or any website the information that is going into your subconscious is incredible.

What are some of your favorite songs that trigger a time or a place that helped create the person you are today?

If there are any negative trigger songs, destructive thoughts or behaviors you can re-anchor them to something empowering (as I did with "The Rooster").
Get into a peak emotional state and fire off something in your thoughts. As you do this move your body a new way and yell something with emotion like BAM!! or Swoosh!! Do this 10 times if you have to. Sounds silly I know but man is it ever fun to know I am in charge of my emotions!

I Love you
