As “A Course in Miracles” suggests, I ascribe to the philosophy that all suffering arises from an error in thinking, perception or judgment. As soon as we change our perception, we change our direction. Sounds easy enough, right?
I once asked a well-known psychiatrist in Orange County what he learned from treating patients for 30 years. Without hesitation, he answered, “Change takes a long time!” If we are treating problems at the root, it doesn’t have to take a long time.
Mainstream healing modalities place an emphasis on finding out what is wrong with the patient. This creates separation. The practitioner relies on labels and definitions as well as their own analytical abilities to connect the negative condition to a proscribed “diagnosis and corresponding treatment.” The patient is made “wrong.” By default, the patient is instantly placed in an inferior position to the practitioner who is in the position of authority. The patient is prevailed upon to shift his/her power over to the practitioner. If the patient resists this power struggle (which is a natural inclination) the relationship becomes polarized until the patient relents. This is separation.
Frequently, I find in my work that the client was in fact right in their initial reaction and response. However, because they were unable to affect their circumstances, or were powerless to act differently at the time, their interpretation of the incident remains faulty. Because we are not taught how to handle emotions appropriately the initial erroneous thoughts and emotional reactions are suppressed and remain below the level of unconscious. This unconscious erroneous belief system surrounding this initial incident is what is still inhibiting them. We continue to accumulate subsequent experiences around the original experience (the layers of the onionskin) until crisis erupts or we become mentally and emotionally paralyzed.
Separation or “loss of self” is the primary reason why individuals seek counseling in the first place. When clients are assisted in repairing the “loss of self” including; the release of ego attachments, constructive emotional release, corrections in erroneous thinking and learning self-love, therapy is effective. It is love after all, that heals.
The “90 Minute Miracle”™ Technique works to heal the emotions, incorrect thoughts and perceptions that reside below the level of consciousness. We explore when, where and how these deeply buried and long forgotten ideas originated. We identify the belief systems and resulting patterns. We explore the positive and negative polarities in our subconscious belief systems and the impact that they are having on our lives. We release the accumulated negative thoughts and beliefs and replace them with new affirmations. Ultimately we learn how to create positive, life-affirming, new experiences upon which to build more rewarding, and satisfying relationships and successful endeavors.

I decided to post this list just for laughs – I also want to stir up some energy on this blog to see how many people are viewing the great information and ideas that have been and will continue to be put forth by healing professionals, coaches and teachers. Let me know what you want to hear.
1. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
2. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.
3. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
4. How are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
5. Was learning cursive really necessary?
6. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
7. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.
8. Bad decisions make good stories.
9. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
10. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.
11. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
12. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
13. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
14. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?
15. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
16. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey — but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.
17. The first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important. Ladies…..Quit Laughing.
