Hey ALL!!  I started this blog to share my thoughts on the Master Key/Master Mind Alliance I am taking part in.  I will share each week 🙂

 

Master Key Experience – Week 2 -A little rusty…

So, I went to write my blog this week and realized 2 things!  Last week’s was in “draft” mode and I didn’t publish it AND I think it’s week 3…regardless, here we go!  Love being back in the swing of reading the Greatest Salesman 3 times a day (fell off on the lunch time read), the weekly lesson, looking for shapes/colors, and starting the beloved flashcards!

The cement is cracking and the gold is shining through, but not without work.  Those grooves are worn deep in the old subconscious!  It takes time and consistent effort to develop an new, healthy, positive habit!  BUT, I am finding that I am way more aware of when I’m slipping into those old thoughts/ways and I am able to turn that around quickly and successfully!  I never had that handy tool in my quiver before!  That just tells me that the old grooves are filling in and new ones are being formed!

Before when I felt a little down, off, sorry for myself, whatever, I was stuck and stayed there not know how to get out of it and things just got worse!  NOW, I list off what I’m grateful for on paper or in my head, I read through some cards, I practice the law of dual thought and remind myself that I can feel any way I want about any thought or situation!  This stuff is so refreshing, it puts my mind at ease.  To know that I have that power to change my mind at any moment just makes me smile, takes the pressure off and just feels good!

I did it today, as a matter of fact!  I was impatient, things didn’t feel right, I couldn’t put my finger on it!  The whiney “things aren’t happening fast enough”  “things aren’t working the way I thought they would!”  “why did that happen, why did this NOT happen?”  I Stopped!  I just STOPPED and thought, really?  Think about it, EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON!  Really think about that!  Something better is coming, if that didn’t work out!  OR, I need to learn from it and do it differently so the something does work out!  Whatever it is!  Focus, work, believe, have faith!  AND above all keep that positive mental attitude AND be freaking grateful! Grateful for this amazing journey you’re on!

grateful

So, I read Og, I read my DMP, and I wrote out several things I am grateful for that happened recently!  BAM!  The smile came back, I felt lighter, I said and thought, “I am whole perfect strong powerful loving harmonious happy and healthy!”  I said it slowly, thinking about each word and I felt it!  It was empowering!  The MKE found me!  I am on this journey for a reason!  I am on my way to realizing my purpose and it simply doesn’t get better than that!

Master Key Experience – Week 1 – Great to be back!

Oh, how I missed the MASTER KEYS, even though I’ve kept up with the readings and polos with master minds…it’s always great to be on the live webinar!  Where to start???

So much has happened since my last blog at the end of March!  The Kauai Retreat was wonderful.  So many great experiences and memories.  I climbed a rather treacherous mountain with some youngsters and didn’t die 🙂   Saw some incredible scenery and was just a part of an incredibly intimate group of top notch people.  Some lasting friendships made and masterminds started that I now treasure.   LOVED Kauai and cannot wait to return!

Some DMP changes and more cement falling off!  It’s quite miraculous to say the least!  The best class I’ve taken bar none…and I’ve taken many as far as personal development goes!  The time, effort, work, and sometimes a bit of agony…ALL worth it!

 

work

My advice for anyone starting new – DO THE WORK!  Do all the work, all the time!  This is your life we’re talking about here!  DO IT! No matter what, no matter how you feel, now matter what you think or someone else thinks or says!  It all has purpose and meaning and will change your thinking and your life profoundly, if you let it!

That’s why you’re here, right?  For change, to be more, do more, have more!  Your life and the life of those you love depends on you focusing and “digging in” as Mark likes to say, so by all means DO THAT!  Dig in like you’ve never dug before because you’re worth it!

I’m excited to hear the shares and be a part of this wonderful course again!  Let ‘er rip!

Master Key Experience – Week 24 – TRUTH

So I love when I have an epiphany during a sit.  Reading about truth in lesson 24, doing the Franklin makeover and observing things in their true nature, in harmony….made me concentrate on truth.  Now, I understood that the truth is from within, it’s the “I” that is spiritual and perfect and love!  I got that, but what struck me during my sit was pretty simple.  It was just us being us, being “true” to us.

You can take that truth however you want to.  Bouncing around in my head was all that we’ve learned here….do it now, I always keep my promises.   What struck me the most during my sit was our thoughts and being true to them.  We are the only ones who know, besides the Universe, and that’s the tricky part….who will know, you will!  That’s the kicker!

BUT being true to ourselves is what matters.  Not reading the guy/gal in the glass, not brushing your teeth,….do you get up out of bed and go do it or not?  Hmmmm you’re the one who has to live with that and what’s it doing to your consciousness?   Even thinking something you shouldn’t…yikes….figure that one out.  That’s an inside conversation that needs to be had.  Where did that thought come from, etc.

Just knowing what you need to do or what you want or said you’d do and doing it.  To me, that would make your entire world happy knack ish!   WOW, the confidence, the power, the ease of life if we did that constantly!

What made me think of all this is my late stepfather.  He was 92 when he died, a dairy farmer, lived an amazing life, and was the epitome of the Master Keys.  I think I’ve mentioned that before.  I can imagine being in his head…just pure and knowing and loving and clear…concise thinking with a definite end in mind!  Makes you wonder how some have it and some don’t.  Really wish I could ask him how he learned to be the way he was.

Then I though later today while driving and observing that we simply must be ourselves, true to our nature, like kids, pets, the grass, the sky.  They can be no other way!   Phew!  That’s the challenge or the journey or the mystery or whatever you’d prefer to call it.  But I’m up for it, are you?

 

The Farmer’s Creed

I believe a person’s greatest possession is their dignity and that no 
calling bestows this more abundantly than farming.

I believe hard work and honest sweat are the building blocks of a person’s
character. 

I believe that farming, despite its hardships and disappointments, is the
most honest and honorable way a person can spend their days on this earth. 

I believe farming provides education for life and that no other occupation
teaches so much about birth, growth and maturity in such a variety of ways.

I believe many of the best things in life are free:  the splendor of a
sunrise; the rapture of wide-open spaces; the exhilarating sight of your
land greening each spring. 

I believe true happiness comes from watching your crops ripen in the field
and your children grow tall in the sun.

I believe my life will be measured ultimately by what I have done for my
fellow man. 

I believe in farming because it makes all this possible.

Master Key Experience – Week 23 – Holy smokes, we’re almost done!

I have been loving the Law of least effort cards.  I made a set to keep with my other cards and read them 3x a day!  So powerful!  I think we’re certainly being set up for success here, and I’m grateful for that!  I can tell you hands down, I am NOT the same person I was in September!  Not even close!  I am on my way to the woman I’ve been longing to become, and I know I’m to be there. So much awesomeness!  It’s freaking magical!

I also listened to Wallace Wattles and really got the points he repeated throughout!  He continually repeated doing things in a certain way….A lot of keeping that mental image of what you desire clear in your mind always!  Giving thanks for it and having deep gratitude all the time!  Doing all you can with faith and purpose every day!  It all makes sense and all things we’ve been doing for months!

And the silence, wow…I will definitely be doing that again.  In a month or so as was suggested on the webinar.  PLEASE do it, if you have not yet!  DO IT NOW!  It’s is one of the most profound, difficult to put into words type of things I’ve ever done.  Think of the one thing in your life that simply blew your mind!! BLEW IT!!!  Three to four days of silence will be right up there with it!  Don’t make excuses why you can’t, clear your darn calendar and make it happen!  It WILL change your life!

Master Key Experience – Week 22a ADDENDUM

I woke up this morning thinking about how negative my last blog was which followed probably one of the most uplifting and inspiring blogs I’ve done so far.

I feel a bit like a yo-yo but I’m understanding that it’s working through all that’s coming to me and happening for a reason and I’m getting there.

My days of Silence were beautiful and one of the biggest things I got from it was that I manifested the Master Keys.  For months I had been writing “Mastermind” in my journal and visualizing a strong mastermind group.  I had read Think and Grow Rich and done the exercises and was “counseling” with my own imaginary mastermind group but I wanted an actual Mastermind!

Then BAM, the MKMMA materialized in my life.  My sit was filled with thoughts that I asked for this and it’s here so dig in, as we keep hearing.  Do the work and BELIEVE!  Then all the great tools to make our emotions work for us….wow!

Then a week off to begin our move to true independent thinkers AND my reading of Lesson 15!  It was where I flipped to this morning and exactly what I needed.   “All conditions and experiences that come to us are for our benefit; that we gain strength in proportion to the effort expended, and that our happiness is best attained through a conscious cooperation with natural laws.”

“Refusing to give out what we no longer need, or refusing at accept what we require!!!   We receive only as we give!!”

I feel impatient like the kid digging up the seed causing it to not be able to germinate!  I heard someone else make reference to that on a Polo!!

Then my sit this morning when every time I thought of something profound, like we are spiritual and powerful and LOVE is the answer and believe and you receive….every time, the room or my mind got bright….literally, it brightened, so bright it hurt my eyes and even closed, I felt like I had to squint…maybe just the sun going in and out or maybe the Universe slapping me upside the head to wake me up!  GEEZ!

I KNOW that I must concentrate, visualize, and believe my purpose is unfolding and I meet my future self!  I KNOW THIS!

I say it again calmness, patience, keep doing the work, EVERYTHING I need pointing me toward my destiny is here!  I just need to get quiet, see it, accept it and act on my intuition (Universal nudges that I asked for) and make it happen.

After that “bright” sit this morning, I brainstormed a list of things I need to do for my business!  Things that will cause action, produce momentum, light me on fire!  Giddy up, it’s go time!   Believe…..

 

Master Key Experience – Week 22a ish – Beautiful Silence to Despair?

Well my 3 days of Silence was beyond beautiful and I could have stayed there!  Slowly over the the days since, though, I seemed to have slipped into a bit of despondence.

I’m not partial to being negative but I feel like I need to get this out, like I need to be vulnerable as is always said on the webinars when someone speaks up and asks for help or admits they are struggling.

I don’t like to do that because admitting it and speaking it to the Universe some how manifests it.  Is that right?  Or is that a way of beginning to conquer IT and figure it out?  So many questions.

Is it repeating “Today I will be master of my emotions”?  Is it wanting that beautiful feeling of quiet and solitude back?  Is the cement deepening its hold or flaking off?

It would be so easy to just stay in my comfort zone and not move, but of course, I would not grow, I would not become the person I will to be.  I would not use this amazing tool of the Master Keys and all I’ve learned here – to indeed manifest my purpose!

Is this normal?  After an amazing 3 days of silence?  Is it panic that the course is ending?  Is it thinking I’ve wasted 6 months of my life and nothing has changed or will ever change?  Is it fear gripping me because I’m so close to a break through that it scares the crap out of me?  If that’s the case, why would that scare me, break throughs are fantastic!

My brain is going a mile a minute, so many thoughts, but no clarity.   Then I think, well just like everything we’ve learned here and all the work and all the readings, flashing cards, good thoughts, manifesting, using our emotions as tools….I control my thoughts!  So, if I can think panic, despair, hopelessness, fear, anger at not having control THEN why can’t I think all of their opposites???

Courage, happiness, success, gratitude, excitement, enthusiasm!  Is this my turning point?  My break-through?  I’m searching inside myself for the strength and drawing on all we’ve learned and implemented the last 5 ish months for the answers.

I am confident the answers come!  I am confident that I rise above.  I am confident that I am here for a reason and that I have the strength and resilience to push through and find the answers I seek.  AND I am confident that my future self is smiling and nodding her head with an outstretched hand waiting to pull me forward into my destiny!

My future self to me:  If you are struggling, wondering, feeling like your drowning, wanting to give up…DON’T!  The emotions are necessary.  Let yourself feel them and be them and just have patience and faith.  Believe that you’re on the right path.  Keep doing the work and soon you will wonder how you could have possibly felt this way.  Then smiling, she says…Oh, and, I love you!

Master Key Experience – Week 22- Solitude in the Silence

WOW!   I took on the 72 ish hours of silence and it was powerful beyond words.  So I did my silence from Wednesday night around 9pm to Sunday morning at 1:30 when I had to get up and drive nearly 5 hours to Boston for a training. I have to say powering down my phone and computer was strange and gave me an uneasy feeling, but then I didn’t want to touch them Sunday morning!  What a shift!

Where to start? It was nice not hearing an alarm and just waking up when I woke up.  It was a struggle not talking to my cats but I managed with just  a few minor slips.  My 1st sit was over an hour, very deep, and beautiful.  The day was calm and easy, I guess, worry free.  I just was.  I did my sit at least 3-4 times each day and without an alarm.  A lot of thinking throughout the day too, not just during sits.  I was not worried about my business, that I needed to be in touch with people, what I was missing, nothing….it didn’t concern me.

Silence+isGolden

I found myself thinking about the past, childhood, good things.  I made some connections…why my step father did and said certain things.  Whey he was so calm, successful, happy knack ish!  He was the epitome of the Master keys.  He lived in the way we are learning about.  It’s been making sense throughout the course, but really makes sense now.

After almost every sit, I would calmly, quietly walk to the window to look out and I lost count how many times I heard a cardinal singing, clearly and seemingly so close.  I tested it and walked away then back and it was seldom there again.  I look for cardinals since my sister was killed just over a year ago and I’ve seen/heard many at just the perfect times!

Some sits I repeated phrases, others I visualized my future self, and others I just sat “open” letting whatever came in , come in.  The first 2 days, not much happened, or so I thought.  The 2nd night I was uncomfortable, couldn’t concentrate, tried lying down, tried everything, then went to bed!

By the third morning, my sit was profound!  I just let go, I was not here, I was floating!  It’s hard to describe the feeling but I thought about the bible excerpts I’d read, my DMP readings, the scroll, the lesson…I took a section from each and quietly reflected on them…wow!  I just kept repeating  “thank you, thank you, thank you”

I feel this calm knowing now.  I don’t feel like I’m in the rat race, and have to be crazy busy and running to and fro.  I just feel like everything is as it should be.  I know what to do and I do it.  I believe!  I believe that everything I visualize and desire is already here, I just have to accept it.

It’s amazing what we realize when we are quiet enough to listen to our heart.

Then to listen to the coffee on my drive home Sunday!  Hearing that we are already healthy and just doing with healthy people do seemed so simple but wow, another bomb shell.  What a great way to think about it!

I listened to the week 22a video and what a surprise to realize it was the Science of Getting Rich that I used to fall asleep to every night for months!  It sounds different when you’re not sleeping!!!

I can’t say it enough, but it just keeps getting better!   I will definitely take on silence again, a few times a year at least!  Life changing!
