Sometimes people do things to others that are
received as if they are curses and death wishes.
Sometimes the curses are deliberately sent – wherein
someone is truly trying to hurt someone else. At
other times this isn’t the case.
Either way, though, the person who feels cursed has to do
something to turn the “spell” into something harmless.
Let me give you an example of what I mean by telling you
a story about something called the JFK Birthday Curse.
Some years ago Mark had a birthday party with a lot
of honored guests.
During the party, however, instead of being treated to a group
rendition of “Happy Birthday,” – something else happened.
Like a cloud of milky smoke, a gorgeous Marilyn Monore
look-alike and sing-alike pranced to the front of the room
and began to swoon, “Happy Birthday, Mr. President.”
Mark took a step back and faked an approving smile but
inside he was cringing. He absolutely hated the song and felt
disgust for what was happening. He hated the song because
of the negative associations it has – including the tragic ending
to the lives of both Monroe and Kennedy.
Mark desperately wanted to scream, “STOP.” But he kept mum because
he didn’t want to embarrass the guest, whom he wasn’t sure fully
understood what a bad move she was making.
Afterward, Mark gave a half-hearted pretend “thank you” – then
removed himself from the party and took a walk with his wife. As he
walked off everyone could feel how the energy in the room had gone
flat. Before it was “up, up, up.” Now it was “down, down, down.”
Instinctively, most people could feel that a spell had been cast. The
key question was, “Could it be removed.”
As Mark walked around his private grounds with his wife she
immediately knew that something was wrong. She could tell that
he felt badly – and being a student of Psycho-Cybernetics, she also
knew she and her husband had the tools to help reframe the wrong,
to remove the curse.
“The images running through my head right now are horrible,”
said Mark. “I can’t stop them. I can’t believe this just happened.
How could someone think this was a positive thing to do for
my birthday? Ugggh. You might as well have brought a shot
His wife said: “Listen, you’ve got to remember that you’re not
JFK and she’s not Marilyn Monroe. I know you didn’t like it –
but give yourself emotional space between what happened.
Use your mental umbrella and push the curse away – then it
won’t bother you.”
The man listened to his wife, followed her instructions and
within what seemed like seconds the sting of the song was
removed. He let go of the pain he felt. He intercepted and
eliminated the curse. He changed the mental movie from
a solo Marilyn Monroe show to Bette Midler leading the
entire party in the more palatable “Happy Birthday to YOU.”
He heard the whole room singing – not just one person. And
when it was over he heard cheers from the audience and
walked around getting pats on the back, hugs and hand
shakes. This adjusted mental movie totally changed his
feelings as well as his feelings toward the person who sang
The curse was lifted. Mark was free.
My friend, this is an example of what you can do with any
curse, hex or spell you think someone has cast on you.
Especially those you have cast on yourself.
Why yourself. Because the truth is, if you were the one who
believed the curse – then you are the one with the power to
change it into something much more pleasureable.
You can learn how to do this very thing, beginning today, when
you become a member of the Psycho-Cybernetics
Even better, if you’re a member of the FEARLESS group of
DOERS in the Psycho-Cybernetics Coaching Program who
meet with me in person four times per year and by phone on
other months – then you’ll be able to take this skill I’m writing
about to a level you’ve never dreamt possible.
You’ll not only have the power to remove curses and destroy
spells – you’ll become a bright, shining light in the lives of
those who are around you.
Think about that. What could be better?
