Week 7 of the Master Key Experience

I greet each day with love in my heart!

What a great way to start a day!  I think this is my favorite sentence in Scroll II of The Greatest Salesman in the World.  As we’ve done the Mental Diet this week, this sentence would bring me back to positivity.  I had a rough couple of days at first with the Mental Diet.  It made me realize how down I had gotten on myself despite having done affirmations off and on for many years.  What I’ve noticed is that when things happened this week that would’ve sent me into a negative tailspin, I was able to pivot the thought around and stay positive.  About midweek it would take almost the full 7 seconds to do this, but now that it’s Friday, it’s becoming easier and easier.  Those neuropeptides of negativity have gotten their marching orders and they’re OUTTA THERE!

Some really cool things have happened out of the blue!  Two new fitness training clients contacted me without me advertising or even offering a special.  Both had no qualms when I stated my price, something that in the past I have gotten arguments about.  Because I’m valuing myself more, others are picking up on that energy and value what I have to offer.  How cool is THAT?!

One of my fave parts of this week was connecting with our smaller MKMMA group via Zoom.  These peeps are becoming friends, and it’s so cool to be connecting with people from all over the world.  Each person has shared some little tidbit of knowledge that has spoken to my heart and I’ve been able to incorporate into my experience.  For those of you looking at this blog when we get ready for the 2018 MKMMA experience, this aspect is one of the best parts of the whole process!

The other fave part of this week was our Thursday evening Sit after reading our Press Release aloud and to visualize sharing this as our future selves.  Having done a radio interview before, this became a vivid way to do this exercise as if I was being interviewed after my DMP has been accomplished.  It’s still a little fuzzy, but the details are becoming more defined.  Haanel’s Week 7 brings everything together about why visualizing works and how to accomplish it.  Such wisdom from a book that was written over a hundred years ago.  What surprises me is that, in all the Law of Attraction and personal growth reading I’ve done over the past 20 years, I had never even heard of this book or Charles Haanel.  Yet it’s the basis of almost everything I ever read about LOA.  I guess it’s the perfect example of the teacher appears when the student is ready.

It’s all coming together and my future that I see now is bright and exciting!

 

 

 

Week 6 of the Master Key Experience

Thankfully this week has been less stressful and emotional than week 5.  I got back into my routine and am seeing how my old blueprint is being rewritten…and I really like the person I am becoming.

On Sunday, the part of the webcast about procrastination and how that is a reflection of how we feel about our future self BLEW MY MIND!  It was on my mind all week long.  It took me till about Thursday to wrap my thoughts fully around it.  It makes so much sense!  I had never thought of procrastination this way.  Yet, now I can hardly think of it any other way.  Writing the press release was a way of falling in love with that woman I am becoming and I’m so excited to catch up with her!

In a way, I was a little sad to bid farewell to the daily reading of Scroll 1 of The Greatest Salesman in the World.  We had become good friends over the month of October.  But when I began reading Scroll 2 on Wednesday, I realized that my friendships were expanding.  As Og says, “I will greet this day with love in my heart” and I greet this scroll with the same love.  I even added this statement (minus the “will”) to my affirmations I have recorded and say daily.

The no voicing of opinion has been a challenge.  As a former teacher, I am so used to sharing what I’m thinking.  I can be pretty blunt that way! LOL!  Maybe I need to find an positive way to affirm that I have no opinions and add that to my affirmations to say!

Putting together my movie poster was SO MUCH FUN!

I also really got into the exercise to put up reminders of my DMP around my house.  One portion of my DMP is an annual trip to Hawaii, so I have reminders of Hawaii all over my house now!  There’s a colorful lei on my desk (with the red, blue, green, and yellow from the shapes), a palm tree table centerpiece on top of my desk hutch, Hawaiian flowers around the house, and photos of the gorgeous blue waters of Maui at my desk and my bedside.  I also wear the compass and have one visible at my desk and another hanging from my car rear view mirror as a reminder to make choices based on where I’m going.  I had shared the meaning of this in a Facebook Live this week, and one of my former students was so inspired, she’s bought her own compass and she’s decided to go back to school to move forward toward her goals.  Mark and Davene, you’re impacting more and more lives with the MKMMA program!

To say I’m thankful for taking the steps to begin MKMMA seems woefully inadequate of all that’s in my heart over what I have experienced.  My heart overflows with love and appreciation for this experience!

Week 5 of the Master Key Experience

To say the past week has been challenging would be an understatement.  Before the Master Keys, I likely would’ve written off doing much work or even personal development work with such challenges as I encountered.

Last week I had earned the Plexus Leaders Retreat in Orlando, Florida (my 4th time attending!), and my old blueprint was screaming at me to take the time off and just relax.  I chose not to listen and completed my work and my MK habits, although in a different place and with some modifications (no loud voice while saying my Blueprint Builder and DMP in the hotel room!).

While in Orlando, we received word from our pet sitter that one of our dogs, Rex, had a large swollen spot on his leg.  Fortunately our pet sitter is a veterinarian technician, so she took him to the emergency clinic.  We headed home early from the event and arrived back in Nashville Sunday morning at 9am to pick up Rex and take him home.  Several vet appointments took place over the next few days in an attempt to discover the cause of his problem, now completely cutting off the circulation to his leg and rendering him unable to walk without support.  Again, my old blueprint kept coming up with excuses for me not to keep my promises.  “It’ll be ok.  Everyone will understand.  Look at all you’re dealing with,” it lied to me subtly.  Again, I chose to keep moving forward and keep my promises, although some of those readings of my DMP and cards were said with tears.

On Wednesday, we said goodbye to our loyal companion Rex.  My hubby and I were with him as he eased into his next incarnation.  I am forever grateful for all he taught us.  Animals can be the best teachers, can’t they?  This big guy came into our lives unexpectedly when we weren’t looking for another dog.  We had 10 years of fun and adventures with him.  He traveled to Boston, South Carolina, Alabama, and all places in between.  He was the bull in the china shop, never quite knowing how big he was and acting like a puppy up to the end.  Despite looking ferocious, he was a gentle giant who let our cats boss him around and he was fiercely protective of our girl dogs, Karen and Gracie.  He showed us how to live fully and love life!  We’ll miss you, big guy!

So despite all the interruptions to my “master plan” for my week, the good habits I had made my slave served me well.  My habits kept me focused and from drowning in too much sorrow and also kept me on the path to fulfilling my DMP.  I discovered I could keep my MK commitments while on the road, if not perfectly, at least creatively.  And I learned that it’s all part of the journey, creating my own unique mosaic of my life’s path.

Week 4 of My Master Key Experience

Week 4 has been an interesting experience to say the least. In some ways, it’s been easy. The latest draft of my DMP seemed to simply flow from my pen. Imaginative words came to me, some with the help of a thesaurus. Mark, seeing your DMP really helped me grasp what to be aiming for. Thank you for that!  I also was able to condense my DMP into the movie trailer version easier than I expected. After I got the latest DMP revision, that part also flowed.

Week 4 of Haanel also clicked for me. As I continue to read in the Master Keys, what Haanel is saying is really resonating with me. As I said in a previous blog post, it’s like Haanel has summed up my previous study of LOA and Science of Mind in one tidy package.

Yoda Do or Do Not

My old blueprint has been grasping for straws this week. As I meditate, I have earworms pop up. The music I’ve been listening to lately is very positive (for example, Get Back Up Again) so at least if the songs pop in my head, they’re good ones!  This song from my childhood ties in so much with weeks 3 and 4 of the Master Keys – The Law of Giving and Receiving and having the sunshine in you! 🙂

This week is the first week that I’ve been outside of my norm. I’m traveling to a Leaders Retreat with my company, so keeping my routine has been a bit of a challenge. It’s the first time I’ve read my cards and DMP out loud to my hubby. At first it felt strange, but now he’s getting excited about my DMP. I even meditated in the car while he was driving. It wasn’t easy, but I did it! 🙂

I’m now quickly recognizing when the excuses want to pop up. I catch myself if it goes contrary to what I’ve written in my DMP, especially when it comes to the sacrifices I’ve said I’m making to reach my goals. I realize that I’ve made promises to the most important person…ME!

 

Week 3 of my Master Key Experience

Week 3 already and it keeps getting better and better!

I think week 3’s reading from Haanel is my fave so far.  It’s like everything I’ve ever known from Abraham Hicks, The Secret, Hay House, Law of Attraction, and Science of Mind have all been tied up into a beautiful gift to enjoy!

I’m catching when my old blueprint still wants to assert its way, and I’m able to pivot my thoughts more quickly.  Essentially a “Thank you for sharing. Now let’s go this way.” response from my new blueprint to the old one.  I LOVE that Mark had us take out the word “will” in The Greatest Salesman! I’ve removed it from my Blueprint Builder as well, and it’s seemed to sink in much better than before.  Being a firm believer and user of affirmations, that word “will” was like a spur in my boot as I had been reading over the past couple of weeks.  Now it flows so much more smoothly!

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been sharing some of what I’ve been learning through the Master Keys and other readings in Facebook Lives on my Facebook page.  I used to be a high school teacher, so to me this reminds me of teaching my class.  My students remember we always had a positive quote of the day on the board that was changed daily.  Sometimes it applied to the lesson, but often times I just went with what spoke to me from the many books on motivation and motivational quotes I have.  At least one student, often more, would tell me how much that particular quote spoke to them and how it was what they needed that day.  Universal Mind, anyone? 🙂  Here’s one of this week’s Facebook Lives talking about being aware of what we’re creating and where our energy is flowing.

Synchronicities continue to pop up all over the place.  One of my friends shared this book with me, and it’s amazing how much the Master Key experience and this book gel together.

Into the Magic Shop

I guess you can tell from my blog posts how much I’m enjoying this Master Key experience! As I was telling my guide this week, I have normally been a person who wanted to get to the end of an experience so that it was either DONE and on to the next experience or so that I knew what was coming.  My first thought when I started this experience was to read through The Greatest Salesman and then do the reading as instructed.  Something stopped me and said, “Trust the journey. You don’t have to know everything right now.”  So I have taken those instructions to heart and done my reading as instructed.

And now I trust that all unfolds exactly as it’s meant to be!

Week 2 of the Master Key Experience

Week 2 has been one of the most eye-opening and synchronistic weeks I’ve ever experienced. I used to think I understood the Law of Attraction, you know, think good thoughts and feel happy and everything falls into place.  But now I have a deeper understanding of WHY this happens.  The reading from Haanel’s week 2 Master Key writings make this so much clearer than I’ve ever understood before.  Although, when I first read it last Sunday, it did kinda read like stereo instructions. But now it simply flows and makes so much sense!

Over the past week, I’ve been seeing blue rectangles.  Why, you may ask? Well, because it’s part of an exercise to reprogram our minds.  Tonight’s blue rectangle was icing on the cake!  My sweet hubby bought me a card, just because, and it was in a blue envelope (rectangle) and the card spoke of all I’m experiencing as part of this Master Key Master Mind experience.  The card is also blue.

Blue rectangle card from Adam

Of course, I love the message, but when I realized the card was a blue rectangle, it was like the absolute coolest moment…realizing my thoughts have the power to change my reality.  Talk about a mind-blowing experience!  I’m still flying from it!

Over this past week, the totally unexpected synchronicities that have happened have been clear demonstrations of the power of my subconscious mind and the habits I’m learning through my MKMMA experience are totally changing my life!

I can’t wait to see what fabulous experiences are next! 🙂

Starting the Master Key experience

This past Sunday I began a six month journey into discovering myself and what makes me tick.  I’m not even sure how I came about the Master Key MasterMind Allilance, except that when I saw it, I knew it was for me.  I’ve learned to trust those nudges from the Universe.  So I watched the videos, made my scholarship application and here I am…writing a blog.  Blogging is something I’ve been talking about doing for awhile, so this assignment was the nudge to do it!

There are set requirements that need to be met to keep the scholarship.  I’m making the commitment to complete all assignments for the program to myself and the group and to my blog readers.  Publicly saying that felt a little scary. It’s definitely one of those leap-and-learn-to-use-my-wings-on-the-way-down experiences.

One of the first week’s assignments is to sit in stillness for 15 minutes per day.  No movement, just your thoughts running around in your head.  As someone who’s meditated for awhile, I thought this would be a piece of cake.  The first day I did this before the group started, it was.  Easy-peasy.  Since then…not so much, though today was better than yesterday.  What was intriguing to me was how much my thoughts affected my body’s desire to move.  I would think of something, for example, thinking about a relaxing beach, and my legs would want to move as if I was walking.  I could actually feel the nerves firing my muscles (thank you, T-Tapp for the incredible body awareness I have).  I caught them before they moved (mainly because I didn’t want to start the 15 minutes over again, LOL!), and that made me even more aware of how much our minds affect our bodies and our impulses.   One of those a-ha moments.

Another thing I’ve noticed is about how our perceived limits will try to keep us in line.  I mentioned this in my Facebook Live today.  I have woken up the past couple of mornings after doing my reading the evening before (another requirement and one I’m enjoying more and more) feeling like I was starting to come down with a cold or bug.  Just a little achy feeling or tightness around my ears and throat.  Usually that would keep me in bed to rest, but with the morning required reading, I got up to read.  Yesterday, that was all it took.  Today, it took getting up, reading, moving around, and eating breakfast before I decided I felt like I could try a short workout (my usual early morning activity).  After my workout, chi machine, and sauna, I felt amazing and continue to feel that way as I type.  Guess this morning it took proving to myself I really wasn’t sick.

So how is this a sign of my upper limits keeping me in line?  One way limits like to attempt to hold me back is to “make” me feel tired, sick, or otherwise unwell when I’ve either made a big breakthrough or come close to one.  It’s like my body needs to catch up with my mind.  It’s a defense mechanism for the ego saying to you, “it can’t possibly be this good or this simple.” Once you recognize the blueprint or programs going on in the background, it becomes easier to catch the “sickness” earlier, like I did today.

And this is what this six month Master Key journey is all about…discovering my blueprint and recreating it.  There’s probably more to it than simply that, but that’s what the journey is about…discovering me!  I’m excited to be taking this journey and will be blogging about it weekly throughout the six months.

Stay tuned!
