Who is Momentum Mikey?

My favorite expression, besides “What are we doing for dinner?”  –   is  “Life leaps like a geyser for those who drill through the rock of inertia.”

Probably because-

1. I worked at Yellowstone National Park for five summers and just loved to watch that raw power come rushing up and bursting out so suddenly from the earth.

2.  I have made such an incredible turn around in my own life that I now feel similar strength and “life leaping”, as I continue to crush some old inertia!

Ok, so I’m an old geyser (NOT a geezer!) named Mike.

  • I’ve worked on a shrimp and clam boat in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Studied at Villanova University, Florida State University and ended up with a final degree in Fish and Wildlife Sciences from Oregon State University.
  • I’ve been evacuated out of roaring forest fires twice.
  • Hiked streams for a living looking for salmon.
  • Had careers in Advertising, the Salon industry and the Fireplace industry.
  • Been in every US state except for Alaska (give me time.)
  • Best thing I ever did – was to marry my sweetheart Jeanne, from Oregon.
  • We now live just outside Seattle, WA.

No matter where I went or who I talked to, everyone had their own perspective on things, and everyone seemed to be looking for one thing. Happy.

When I pieced together how a few scientific ideas validated the whole thought process of “we become what we think”, then the geyser that is Mike just started erupting baby!   Oh, what an experience!  Life became incredible again!

The science that we all had been taught is really just the Law of Attraction in different words. Suddenly, I felt thrilled that I could connect right and left brained ideas and actually use both halves to help explain how life really does “become what you think about”. Hey, what do you know, the Buddha was right.

Join me around the table here, or maybe just pull up some pillows on the sofa if you want, and let’s see if a few new ideas might just help crush any inertia you may not want, or continue to energize that inertia that you’re already building on purpose!  At the very least, have a few laughs with, and occasionally, at me.

MY GOAL- spark some of your own Fire and Inspiration.   I owe a lot to the folks who have inspired me, and it is only right to continue their dreams and inspiration to make this world an incredible place.

YOU have an AWESOME geyser in you as well!    Let it out!

Thanks for visiting my blog and I look forward to reading your Comments so I can learn from your thoughts as well.

Break through that Inertia my friend, and YOU WILL AMAZE yourself with your own Greatness!!!

Your friend,  Momentum Mikey

  2. Hi Mikey, I’ve just discoverd your blog and really enjoyed reading your posts, look forward to be following for more. I’m not a science person myself, and therefore love it when it’s brought down to an easier level, even more so if it also connects to our daily (emotional) life.

    • Thanks so much for the comment and for stopping by. Your jewellery and the “digital stuff” you love- all linked by science. Its just that most science teachers don’t communicate THAT connection. That’s ok, I’ve never learned that much about the parts of life that you’re passionate about, so it’ll be fun as I learn more from your experience of life. Thanks for being willing and open to share ideas.

  5. Thanks for your continued visits to my blog and encouragement Mikey 🙂 We are on the same page you and I. I have also been evacuated from two bushfires (Australia.) Good old Elvis (water dousing chopper) from the US, saved us from three converged fire-fronts at the ‘evacuation’ point. Life and times hey. It all helps us develop into who we are and what we choose.Thanks for being YOU.You know what that means 🙂

    • Erika, thanks for the thought. I’ve decided to take a break from writing. Mostly very personal and deep reasons. I’ve decided and now understand that the lessons that I’m learning in life are for ME. I savor every insight, but lose something from it when I try to teach or express it. I just want to LIVE it. When I savor it thru living it, the lesson remains full of vitality, and that beacon of light is stronger than any puny words that I could offer. I will write again someday, but I believe I’ve expressed the 100 ideas that I came up with recently, and feel good having expressed those for anyone who did want to hear something new. I may write more later….
      I thank you for your inspiration along the way.I thank you for the continuing positive energy that you give to the world thru your own representation of Life’s Greatness. Our energy is one and I wish you tons of continued success and mostly JOY as you celebrate LIFE in your own way and path. take care and thanks again for all the Positivity YOU add to the world! mikey 🙂

        I am happy and thankful that I found a wonderful soul in you swimming on the same wave. Take good care and I am looking forward to hearing from you from time to time how you are doing! ❤ 🙂

  7. Thank you my friend, Momentum Mikey, for sharing your talent! We all need encouragement and inspiration to stay on track. I have been learning about the law of attraction for the last 5 years.

  8. Hey Mikey, I just read your post about mass x velocity equals momentum. I loved it! I am now following your very interesting blog. I love the science thrown into the quantum craziness (I knew a quantum physicist who thought all this positive thinking create your reality stuff being connected to quantum science was craziness.) But I couldn’t leave a comment there??? So I’m doing it here. Thanks for finding me Mikey.

  9. Hey Mike! Thanks for stopping by my (1st) blog. Awesome content you have here. PLaning to come back. So, living in Washington. I just returned from WA two days ago. Visited the Fish Market. Hahaha. Not really. The wind was so strong it was moving me along of its own will. So I promptly turned around and got back into the car. My company went on and braved the winds for about 45 minutes. WA is beautiful, but summer would be a better time for a visit.
