Week 9 Master Key Adventure

plants

Week 9… Wow, what a amazing journey it has been so far.  There were so many new and challenging things when this journey first began.  Questioning my own ability to complete each new thing…but very determined to do it no matter what!   What was once overwhelming is now happening effortlessly  and the seeds that were sown nine weeks ago have begun to sprout and grow.    

This week, as I am visualizing the growth of  a seed and the maturing process. I couldn’t help but think my own process from week one to now.   The fruit has begun to show forth in so many areas. The roots are still digging deeper so the plant can grow stronger and able to withstand the elements of life.  As I was looking at the germination process of the seed, it parallels so much this MKMMA class.  It all began with a seed, but exactly happens as that seed germinates?  As the seed coat breaks away ( the cement on the golden buddah) the plant starts to grow.  The first root called the radical burst forth from the seed coat and reaches down in search of nutrients. As the root grows the plants first chute or Plumule reaches upward in search of light,(the MKMMA class)  carrying with it the plants first leaves known as the Cotyledons.  While the roots grow deeper into the ground the chute continues to sprout and as it absorbed more light(The Alliance ) the plant continues to grow and produce more leaves.

plant seedsThe growth process still continues and we are digging deep with the roots by applying the process of no opinions, the mental diet ,and our exercises.  Mark J has said several times to   “Dig deep”  the deeper we go, the stronger we will become and the better we will be able to stand when the elements of life come at us.  We are producing leaves of love, character, keeping our promises, doing service, building a plan of action, and giving.  May we continue to do all we can, dig just a little deeper and be the light for each other as we continue on the process of growth, Being Thankful for everything we are doing and how our lives and thinking is changing!

Upward and Onward!

Week 8 Master Key Adventure

thanksgiving 12

We are heading into the holidays and it is always a busy, but great time of the year! This week will be filled with family and laughter as all my children are home and my Mother is visiting for Thanksgiving. She has been looking forward to seeing the Grandkids and finally made it. We will celebrate her birthday as well as my second son who turned 16 this week. All the boys will be spending some time in the outdoors as Hunting season begins this Saturday, It is indeed going to be a busy week, but a great week and I’m already counting my blessings.

This week has been another challenge, as I have been applying the Law of Substitution.   As I continually track my thinking and purposefully change my thoughts to what I want to think on,by reading my movie trailer and looking at my dream board constantly choosing what I will allow in, I have found as the week has progressed, it is becoming easier to do this.  It came to me the other night that the affirmation “I can be what I will to be” is used over and over each time I apply this Law. Each day I am going to be happy and Joyful because “I will to be”, I will be thankful because “I will to be” I am making a difference because “I will to be” and this principle can be applied to everything!

I came across this story and thought it illustrated this perfectly!

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.

Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.

After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.

As she maneuvered (an action, especially a devious or deceptive one, done to gain advantage) her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window. “I love it,” she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.

“Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room …. just wait.”

“That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” she replied. “Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged, it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away, just for this time in my life.”

She went on to explain, “Old age is like a bank account, you withdraw from what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.”

And with a smile, she said:
“Remember the five simple rules to be happy:thanksgiving5


 1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.”

Week 7 Master Key Adventure

                                             Run As If Your Life Depends Upon It!

Emotions…how powerful they are and we can use them to our advantage!  We all have a reality that we live with every day, and we are being taught how to change our outward reality by changing our focus from the world” without” to the world “within.”  This week in the master keys 22,   Haanel says,

 “Create ideals only, give no thought to external conditions, make the world within beautiful and opulent and the world without will express and manifest the condition you have within.  You will come into a realization of your power to create Ideals and these Ideals will be projected into the world of effect.” 

Imagine that you’re lost deep in the woods.  You’re scared, alone,and looking for help.  Suddenly, in your wandering, you happen upon a gigantic, hungry grizzly bear.  At that precise moment, your brain begins drawing immediate conclusions.  In a flash of an instant you would conclude something like this.-bear-chase

“This is a grizzly bear.  He looks hungry.  Grizzly bears eat meat.  I’m made of meat.  While I’m thinking of the other options, I could at least start running.”

SO, you would immediately start running, and instantly your fear factor would be about fifteen on a scale of one to ten!  You would be instantaneously terrified and your pulse rate could prove it.

Now, Imagine that, as your running through the woods praying, you miraculously happen upon a concrete bear shelter built deep into the side of a large mountain.  It’s absolutely impenetrable.  So, to save your own hide, you run inside and bar the door, just barely escaping the claws of the bear who was hot on your heels.

The scientific fact of the matter is – you’re now safe.  You’re well blockaded into the side of the mountain and the bear cannot harm you.  Yet, for some reason, you find yourself  huddled all the way to the back corner of the shelter, heart still pounding, chest still heaving, and fear factor still topping 14.5 on the Richter scale.

Your emotions are now lying to you.  In your conscious mind you know you are safe, yet your emotions are telling you to be afraid….be very afraid!  Even though you know the facts, your body is still responding in contradiction to the facts.  It probably would take a normal person thirty minutes or more for their emotions to settle down.

I know this is a fictional story but think with me for a minute about this power we have to use our  emotions to change our reality. Just like the sight of that bear and the emotion of fear, put into motion a reaction from the subconscious to survive and do whatever it took to do so.  We are using this power each time we read our  DMP,  smart goal, press release  and  service cards with CHARGED EMOTIONS.  Our conscious mind knows our reality but our  charged emotions can cause our body to respond in contradiction to the facts…putting into operation the Law of Abundance. 

As I was thinking on what  Haanel was saying, It made me realize that in my subconscious mind cannot differentiate between reality as I know it and my new reality that I am working towards.   As I give myself  permission to accept these dreams as reality, my emotions are charged,  as if a bear were chasing me, and my subconscious will do whatever it take, as if my life depended on it,  to make them come true!

Week 6 Master Key Adventure

 THE POWER TO CHANGE!

I absolutely love scroll II in Og Mandinos book.. which begins  “I will greet this day with love in my heart.”

 The first five weeks of this course was full of obstacles for me, some physical,  some a result of my own choices,  but many were  the results of dominating thoughts in my mind.  I love the fact that” I”  have to power to change my mind, to change those dominating thoughts and attitudes. The mind has a tremendous amount of power,  I change my thoughts, I change my feelings and I can control my feelings by changing what I think.  I can be what I will to be!

The exercises and assignments of this course, have given me a map to hidden treasure.  The changing of attitudes started with  change in behavior.  I began acting the part, the best I could,  of  the person I wanted to become and gradually, that old, fearful person is fading away.  I don’t know which had to come first,  the thinking or the habits but I do know they are connected.  It is the daily exercises, the  readings,  the affirmations, the giving card and keeping promises to myself  that is making the difference.  This week there was a change for me, it is exciting  as I see myself overcoming some great obstacles.thCA8H63WC

I came across this Chinese proverb this week,  I thought was applicable.

“Assume a cheerfulness you do not feel, and shortly you feel the cheerfulness you assumed”

Give More Get More

Evil For Evil? Good For Good?

I had the opportunity this week to observing a group of 3 year old girls playing together.  I must say,  it was quite an enlightening experience. These little girls were “giving more and getting more”  but it was not in the way we are being encouraged to “give” on our giving card.

The principle was showing forth and I was watching human nature at work, the more these little girls were unkind and selfish, the more that same action was returned to them.

It was like they were in competition on who could out do the other.  I have seen some adults acting just like these Children.  It made me think about my actions and the way I give to others, if I do not like what I am receiving, then I need to check my “giving habits” and make adjustments and change so I am in the the dynamic flow of giving and receiving.

 ” Give More Get More……” What are you getting in return?

     Have you ever felt you were being stretched, knowing it is part of your growth, it is good for you,  but your mind, that old blueprint, is telling you it’s not worth it, it’s too uncomfortable and just plan too hard ?

I was having this struggle this week, Writing my Press Release brought me to a brick wall of obstacles. That wall has appeared more than once in this journey and each time, there was always a decision to be made. This time I had to decide if  I was going to let this defeat me and give up or would I find a way?     I found myself thinking the wrong things like,  “I just can’t do it” and “I am not a writer”.  I was in a battle with the old blue print and bad habits.   As I was entertaining these thoughts, I  was reminded of the principles I have already learned.  It is up to me to choose what I will think and allow to enter in my mind.  I know If I continue to entertain this wrong thinking, I will for sure accept defeat.  I can replace the wrong thought with a right thought, I cannot think two things at the same time.  So I made a decision, I decided to succeed, change my thought and win. 

 Mark J has said, Winners find a way“…. I am a winner, I do not quit  even when I cannot seem to find the answer.  The answer is within, all I need is already in place, I just have to trust “all is ripe on the olive tree.”brickwall_key

 I broke through the brick wall and have written a portion of my Press Release, the rest will be finished soon.  I am the winner and a new habit is being exercised and replacing old ones.  I am giving more effort and I am receiving more strength. Give more Get More!!!
