Would it be okay if you visit me at my new location…
I have been out of touch with writing my blog. The last blog I wrote was our last required blog for the MKMMA. I had been in the flow and followed all the directions and wrote a blog every single week for 26 weeks! Yet, now, all this time has passed, and I have had good intentions of writing, but you know, the best laid plans… I have been put it on my list and checked in with my accountability partner, and I have been stating Do It Now repeatedly, but to no avail. I am also part of the Continuation and am being trained to be a Certified Guide, yet something has blocked me. Is it fear that my blog won’t be good enough? I won’t say the right things? It won’t share infinite words of wisdom?
Today, I decided it doesn’t matter what the answers are, I just have to Do It Now! I told myself that when I check in today with my accountability partner, I will tell him My Blog is Done. Thanks Stephen!! I told myself I could not leave my house today until I finished my blog. I know that once I start writing, I will be in the flow. Well, here I am, and I can already feel the weight of indecision and procrastination lifting and leaving my body. It feels awesome.
The journey since the 26 weeks continues to be amazing. Many times I feel like two steps forward and one step back in my self-directed learning, but when I continue to do the exercises and listen to the webinars, I remind myself that I really don’t move backwards. I might pause, but I continue to move forward. Mark and Davene continue to reinforce the things we have learned in the past, and I know that sometimes I need to hear it again and again and again. Plus, they always add something new, and I love learning new things, and I am continuously being shown and guided with the MKMMA work. I am a better observer than I was last year, and my thoughts are more accepting of others and less judgmental. When I share with people what I am learning, and I ask if I can share a thought, they are more open to me. One friend told me the other day that she sees a difference in the way I approach things. Now, that is cool!!
The Guide Training is awesome. As I learn how to look at DMP’s and help others with theirs, I am learning more about my DMP. I am questioning if my PPN’s are in alignment and is my dharma clear. In my head, I am revising and questioning, and if I Do It Now, I will put the pen to paper and edit it again.
And yes, I have manifested parts in plays. I have wanted to be in one since High School and all these years later, I am going to be in Our Town. As Trish says, ‘ things start to manifest in inexplicable ways.’ So true. It wasn’t written that way on my DMP, but I wrote that I wanted to be creating with like-minded individuals. So cool!
There is nothing like the MasterKey Experience!!
To hear an incredible summary by Mark J. being interviewed by Richard Bliss Brook, listen to this podcast.
As we near the end of our time with the MKMMA weekly Sundays and embark on our Commencement into the life we have always wanted, I want to thank everyone for being with me, and I will miss you all. Thank you Mark and Davene for everything.
I did an extended sit on Thursday for an entire day of silence and being totally unplugged.
After our daily readings, I delightedly had the time to read Deepok Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success based on Mark and Trisha’s recommendation. I too highly recommend it. I read and paused and sat in the silence letting the words and my emotions wash over me. My long extended silence was a culmination of many thoughts, feelings, and reflections. Sometimes powerful surges of emotion were overflowing from my heart into my eyes. I know that at times I am caught up in the business of life and work, and I lose focus on all the work I have done to see and feel what is happening within and around me.
When I was finished, I handwrote many thoughts and feelings about my journey and growth through this amazing experience.
- – I have done my best to let go of judgment both of myself and others, and I more often than not keep my opinions to myself.
- – I have learned that I am good enough because I truly am nature’s greatest miracle.
- – I know that one of my gifts is that I give fully of myself.
- – I know that another gift is that I listen with my heart.
- – I have become more enlightened in the ways of the universe and how things work.
- – I have become a more centered person and have a calmer sense of being.
- – I have found more peace and harmony.
- – I have become more of an observer both of others and myself.
- – Giving myself this purposeful day of silence is a gift.
- – The MasterKey experience has been a miracle and being part of this journey, this Mastermind, with so many talented and creative people all seeking to change their lives has been a blessing.
- – I have sat in silence before, but it really felt different this time. I know that my sits will continue to be a strong part of my daily life.
- – Stay focused on my intention (DMP) and don’t let anything stop me from getting there especially my old blueprint.
- – I can be what I will to be.
- – I am whole, perfect, powerful, strong, loving, harmonious, and happy.
- – I greet this day with love in my heart.
- – Everything I need is within me, and I have the power to be.
- – Trust my heart.
Being introduced to readings and videos I might never have known – Og, Hannel, Emerson – the full extent of the webinars and the enthusiasm of Davene, Trish, Derek, and Mark and my guide Justin have enriched my life. The opportunity to share all of this with hundreds of others has also been incredible. And of course, having the opportunity to Mastermind with different individuals has made it hard for me to realize that this class is coming to an end. I am a Blue! I don’t let go of relationships easily.
I thought this quote from Chopra’s book is fitting here and moving forward.
The Law of Detachment – In detachment lies the law of uncertainty.. in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning.
And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant. Oops there goes another chunk of cement. Peace be the journey, and we have all stepped into the Hero’s Journey. I am glad to know you.
It has been a great week.
I have read all the regular readings this week, but the addition of reading the Law of Least Effort has been an amazing help and extremely powerful tool. Wow! The Law of Acceptance came in handy at work this week. When a difficult situation arose, I reminded myself that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I accept things as they are in this moment, not as I wish they are. This law is awesome, and I am doing my best to live by this amazing truth.
Another powerful Law of Least Effort is Responsibility. I know that taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation and this includes myself. I know that every problem is an opportunity in disguise. In my life, I usually take responsibility for things that are and that happen, yet this week, I love the addition of not blaming myself.
I am working on the Law of Least Effort: Defenselessness. The message is crystal clear. I will relinquish the need to defend my point of view. I will feel no need to convince or persuade others to accept my point of view. Just go with the flow and be in harmony with everyone and everything around you. Be the observer. Things we have been learning all long.
Small things have been appearing for me in ways I would not have ever anticipated, and I think is it a coincidence or did I bring this to me? Of course, I know the answer. Which makes my belief system grow bigger and stronger.
In my DMP, I have written that creative energy feeds my soul, and I am acting, dancing, and creating with like-minded people. Earlier this week, I went on line to our local event paper to look at some classifieds for my roommate, and on the front page of the webpage, there were two intersecting street signs. I happen to have a card on the bookshelf right in front of my desk with two intersecting street signs that say Retirement and Freedom. So seeing those two green signs caught my attention. It said Auditions. I clicked on it, and they are putting on the play Harvey, which is a movie I really like. I don’t need a headshot or a resume, just show up on Saturday. I decided I would go for it, and my heart started buzzing and my energy within was popping all over. I shared my thought with a woman I work with, and she told me she could see my body smiling.
Coincidence or did the Universe bring it to me? You know!
My roommate found a job and my house flows with positive energy, another important element in my DMP.
Last week I was invited to a dinner at a student’s house for a holiday dinner next weekend. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go or not. At my school, we don’t go to student’s houses. I told the mom I had to check into the date and check with family. In my sit on Wednesday, I focused on my energy and being a spiritual being, and I could feel the energy flowing within. Near the end of the sit, I heard say yes to every opportunity! Don’t’ look for ways not to do something ( that is my fear), find ways to make something happen. I am saying yes to the dinner and the audition.
Thank you for sharing my journey.
For the past two weeks, I have been trying to find a full day or two consecutive days where I may be in the silence without distractions, but it has been difficult to schedule. It will happen but not for another week an a half.
I decided that whenever I have small moments or even an hour or two, to relish the silence. Even when I am in my car, powerful things can happen when I shut off the chatter-chatter going on in my head and focus on the sunrise in the silence as I drive along the lake shore. I have heard the voice of my heart speak to me in different places and times, and my car is as good a place as any other when in the silence.
Also, I plan to disconnect from all wasteful draining electronic time this week. Once, Derek had us go on a technology diet, and I remember how good it felt. Another time, during week 14, I wrote about being without service and how liberating it felt. This week, whether for a short time or a couple of hours, I will schedule time for silence and harmony. I will unplug to get in touch with my happiness and joy within that is sometimes buried under the crazy of work and all that needs to be done.
The MasterKey class has opened up so many doorways for me. Through our readings of Og, Haanel, Emerson, and through the guidance of Mark and Davene and our guides, I have learned so much and have been deeply moved and inspired to continue to dig deep and find my deepest desires and go after them. Yet, as Og writes, our emotions are like the tide and they ebb and flow, and I need to be the master of my emotions because sometimes I need to push myself onward past the ebb.
Some of the most inspiring things I have read throughout this course are the blogs of all of the other MasterKey students. I read about twelve blogs each week, and I am deeply moved and inspired by the journeys of all of you, my fellow MKMMA people and what you are going through. There are certain people that I follow all the time, and I have been reading their blogs from almost the beginning. I love reading about your growth and your dreams coming true, and I have learned so much from all of you. I feel like we are old friends, and it is always good to catch up. You have no idea what your journey has done for me in regards to believing in myself, keeping the faith, and knowing that I Can Be What I Will To Be.
Thanks for staying the course and letting me share your journey.
While reading and rereading Haanel this week, I was truly struck by the power of his words in regards to self-healing. The law of vibration controls the body. We can change the vibration and thus produce any condition which we desire in our bodies.
After the readings and the sits, I realized my DMP needs to have the words and the application of the visualizations woven into it to bring about my PPN of True Health. It never occurred to me to write in the power within and the sits into my DMP before this week. So, back to the drawing board and a rewrite of my DMP.
My old blueprint grabbed tight for the later part of this week. It seemed that the stronger I worked with the visualizations of a mental image of the physical person I intend to become and being vibrant and filled with energy, the more sweets I wanted to consume. The word no didn’t come into play very much, and I even had a bag of Hershey kisses on my desk. Last night, I found the power and focused deep on what I truly wanted. I understood why my monkey wouldn’t let go of the banana (chocolate) and knew it was my old blueprint holding on tight.
I will continue to read Haanel this week and to remember when perfect images are placed before the subjective, the creative energies will build a perfect body. One can readily see that if we wish the body to manifest health, strength and vitality this must be the prominent thought. I get it!! I can be what I will to be! I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy!
Thank you all for being on this journey with me.
From the readings, the many bogs I have read, and from all the exercises done over the past twenty-one weeks, I know that I, and yes, we are on a powerful journey. Yes, the Hero’s Journey.
A funny thing happened to me on the way to my DMP this week, I fully discovered and embraced the joy of the journey. Being the observer of all the wonderful things within and surrounding me. I can see them all more clearly now.
I’ve always loved the time of day right before dusk when the sun hits the buildings with an orange glow and the lake is iridescent. It doesn’t always look that way, but when it does, I breathe in deeply its beauty and power. The Law of Giving and Receiving – I promise to be a grateful receiver of the gifts (miracles) that surround me, pausing often and noticing nature.
Yesterday, the energy between myself and my co-worker kept bumping into each other, and I carried that wonky feeling with me when I left work. Luckily, when I was driving home, I saw the miracle of that beautiful sunset, breathed in, and replaced my thoughts with the joy of the light– the Law of Substitution.
Today in my sit, I asked “what can I do to make my situation better at work?”
My quiet voice responded. “My world without is a reflection of my world within.”
Wow. That was like a hammer to my head. I decided to give more and to be the change I want to see. I wrote her a thank-you note for the great things she did yesterday and told her that I appreciated it. The day started off great and stayed that way. One simple act of caring can create a ripple effect. The Law of Giving and Receiving – Everywhere I go I bring a compliment. The Blueprint Builder – I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward physical action. Change my thoughts and actions.
Sometimes when I am focused on getting to my DMP, I tend to focus on the things I might not have accomplished instead of looking at all the abundance I already have in my life. That is why I have the three stacks of cards to read over and over to remind me of what I have done in my life. I am truly the observer of my life, and I am surrounded by love and am living in gratitude.
All the things I have been doing the past twenty-one weeks is a progression and it continues to grow. The knowledge is being applied, and I am more content and at peace than before I started this journey. Yes, I may falter and stumble and fall behind in my readings, but I am still walking on this amazing path. I am incredibly grateful for Mark and Davene and all the inspiring blogs of others who are also on this journey.
This is a truly remarkable experience all on the way to my DMP.
