Motivation Monday: Eli Tomac

As esteemed members of the media our goal is not to tear people down, but to build them up. To motivate. To inspire. We have a lot of experience in this, as we’ve been motivating ourselves to work for damn near free since 2007. This is a new column where we find someone in need of our help and stretch out our healing hand to guide them.

The key to understand is that not all methods work for everyone. While healing crystals may be your key to success, others may find clarity by watching old videos of “The Secret” to be the best version of themselves. Tried that? Don’t stop there, you’ve got motivational speakers such as Tony Robbins, healing roots used by the ancient Cherokee tribes, Jin Shin, Tai Chi, the list goes on.

For our next installment of Motivation Monday we want to offer our healing hand to Eli Tomac. Yes, current Monster Energy Supercross Champion and multi-time Pro Motocross Champion needs our help. We’ve known Eli since he was knee high to a grasshopper and, for this reason, we are going to channel in on some specific practices that should work for Eli rather than just throwing random healing methods at him.

Tomac is, by nature, a private person. He internalizes his struggles. So high energy motivation like Tony Robbins is out. He lives in the high altitude of Colorado, and while some may suggest a cannabis approach, that’s also out for obvious reasons. Special roots such as Shiatsu work for many, but we can’t guarantee that WADA agrees. That leaves the obvious option of healing crystals, something we have much experience with.

Eli, allow me to introduce you to a package of crystals for mental clarity that serve a very specific purpose, and something I believe can get you back in this outdoor championship fight.

Clear your mind with this set right here! Each of the stones in set contain the qualities to cleanse and clear your mental. Often times we deal with mental smog or an overactive mind. If this is you then this set is for you! Most of these stones are connected to the crown and third eye chakras; both are responsible for thinking, worry, etc.

Set Contains:
Howlite – can be used to calm communication and soothe mind chatter
Sodalite– brings inner peace; stone of logic that calms panic or stress
Amethyst– natural stress reliever, removes negative energy &  enhances self awareness
Blue Apatite – “Stone of knowledge”; Dissipates mental confusion & resolves difficulties
Citrine– embodies energies of happiness and joy, also great for attracting abundance
Lapis Lazuli– clears your thoughts; imparts wisdom & truth while helping to organize your thoughts
Fluorite– protects against stress; neutralizes negative energy, balances emotions and brings mental clarity
Hematite – grounding stone, provides mental clarity, calming & centering

The above just clarifies what we already know, Bird Dog ain’t no doctor, per say. But while I don’t hold an “official” license, I have been known to turn careers around with my abundance of eastern healing knowledge. Eli, if you can commit to the healing process outlaid here, I can guarantee you won’t regret it. And the good thing is my advice is FREE. I just want to see you performing at your best and healing crystals can take you there.

  1. No, those were to cure something totally different that you have going on. Crystals don’t do well with rashes.
