I am becoming my own best friend!
This Week for the Master Key “sit” the directions are to visualise sowing a seed of our favourite flower see it germinating and growing its roots followed by the stems and finally the glorious flowers with their intoxicating scent. I love this visualisation and find it easier to do than some of the previous exercises.
It has reminded me of the importance of good foundations – the flower puts down its roots its anchor and then reaches for the sun. I am noticing the benefits of the strong foundations laid down by the first few weeks of the Master Key Experience. The most noticeable one is that when I think of doing something I just do it – no procrastination e.g. I read a recipe for a Banana and Ginger Cake in the Sunday paper on Monday evening and noticing we had 2 over ripe bananas , I set to and made the cake straight away – This is a definite positive change for me.
We had a Zoom meeting with our lovely Master Key guide Sylvie on Saturday afternoon where I met Marianna and her husband Toni who live in Switzerland. Through Sylvie’s expert guidance I have remembered to check in with myself more often during my work day anchoring the lessons to my every day life.
Marianna invited me to be here Mastermind partner and I was delighted to accept her invitation. Linking up with another person on the Master Key course to Mastermind with is a requirement – As Mark has re-iterated on numerous occasions we all do better with a mentor.
It reminds of the saying “what gets measured gets done” so when I tell Marianna I intend to do a particular thing I know I will follow through. We are using the Marco Polo app for our Masterminding – I am still getting to grips with it.
7 Day Mental Diet update – I feel like I am making great progress with this I am now on day 3 and in the process becoming my own best friend! I find my internal chatter is much more encouraging than in the past. The Key for me is the law of substitution – I have a few “mantras” that I invoke when I notice any non-productive thoughts and it is working. The other great support for my mental diet is the repeated reading of Og Mandino’s 2nd scroll “I greet this day with love in my Heart” – I wake up in the morning with this though and fall asleep the same way.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
