Master Key Experience Week 17 -I give Myself Permission To Be Free To Be Me!

The Privilege of  a Lifetime is being who you are -Joseph Campbell

I can hardly believe we are on week 17 of this wonderful course and that I have been faithful to the exercises every single day –  I will admit there were some days I was more enthusiastic than others but generally  I get out of the bed with a light heart looking forward to reading my DMP, The Blue Print Builder etc. doing the sit followed by writing and reciting 3 new gratitude cards.

I use a reminder on my phone to remember to tune in again after lunch, the social networks remind me to  link in with fellow participants on social media. I am happy to switch off the TV in favour of finishing my day with more reading and contemplation.

It is like nothing else I have ever experienced – It is gracefully changing me from the inside out!

In Lesson 17 we are encouraged to Concentrate – This is to be a relaxed Concentration which almost seems like a contradiction in terms. Before I started the MKE concentration for me involved unconsciously tensing my muscles particularly my shoulders.  Now I relax into the object of my concentration

To become so identified with the object of your thought that you are conscious of nothing else

unaware of your body, your surroundings and how much time has passed since you started the sit, or anything else for that matter.

Haanel goes on to explain that when we execute this method of concentration correctly

Invisible forces are set in motion which irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence with your thought

When we use this Laser like focus we develop our intuition which

 arrives at conclusions without the aid of experience or memory

We can often solve problems by simply sitting alone in silence and concentrating on the desired outcome. Our intuitive insights often come like a bolt out of the blue  and with a solution that our logical minds would never have envisioned. The more we acknowledge and welcome these intuitive insights the more often they will come to visit us.

Of course Rome wasn’t built in a day and this discipline of laser focused  concentration takes practice and patience but as Haanel describes in 17.17

The intensity of one moment’s earnest concentration and the intense longing to become and to attain may take you further than years of slow normal and forced effort; it will unfasten the prison bars of unbelief, weakness, impotence, and self-belittlement, and you will come into a realization of the joy of overcoming.

So this week I concentrated on giving myself permission to be happy,  and to simply be free to be my true authentic self. The scroll we are reading now from Og Mandino tells us we are “Natures greatest Miracle” and that there never has and never will be another quite like us – which is an amazing contemplation.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read my Post.

Master Key Experience – Week 15 – Gratitude as a Cause.

Thank You, Polaroid, Letters

I am starting to understand the power of gratitude as a cause of creating more to be grateful for rather than an effect i.e. something we express or feel after an experience or receiving something. I love the exercise that we started last week of writing 3 things on index cards  that we are grateful for each day (repetition is not allowed – 3 new things each day). My cards have varied from being grateful for a powerful hot shower to a cup of tea to a lovely bright winters morning – all of which were in my reality at the time of expressing gratitude. It is not simply that we rattle off three things that we are grateful for but that we actually feel true gratitude for these things as we read our cards out loud with enthusiasm.

Part 15 of the Master Key states that the laws under which we live are designed for our advantage and that growth is attained through an exchange of the old for the new. I have found that doing the gratitude practice above regularly has exchanged finding fault with gratitude for what already exists.

“The wonderful power of clothing thoughts in the form of words” according to Haanel in part 15 is what differentiates mankind from the animal kingdom.

The other great thing that separates us from the animal kingdom is that we can visualise a future for ourselves and take action towards the realisation of that future.

This is where the real power of gratitude comes into force – What if we express genuine authentic gratitude for an event or thing that we haven’t yet experienced  but would like to experience e.g. something we have written in our Definite Major Purpose that we truly desire.

Expressing gratitude for something we haven’t yet experienced is in my mind demonstrating faith in our dreams and building that bridge which Mark spoke to us about at the start of the Master Key Experience between where we are now and our future Selves.

Master Key Week 14 – Gratitude for Harmony.

Wishing all who read this Post a Happy Harmonious 2020! Happy New Year!

We got to read scroll IV of Og Mandino’s ‘The greatest Salesman” on Wednesday where we are told that we are “natures greatest miracle” – what a great start to the New Year!

I choose a photo of a rainbow this week as one of the many many things I am grateful for this Christmas and New year is the wonderful perfectly formed rainbows over the ox mountains  I got to enjoy on my walks.

In Part 14 of the Master Key Haanel says “If you wish Harmonious conditions in your life, you must develop an harmonious mental attitude” and in the sit this week we are directed to concentrate on Harmony and to concentrate so earnestly that we will be conscious of nothing but harmony.

So what is an “Harmonious Mental Attitude”? and how can I cultivate it in my daily life? – for surely I do wish for harmonious conditions in my life!

My own working definition of having a harmonious mental attitude is where I have a definite intention i.e. as defined in My Definite Major Purpose and that my thoughts, feelings, and actions are all in alignment with this Intention.  Coupled with this is the belief of “ask and you shall receive” ” knock and it shall be opened unto you” In other words when I get up from my sit I am not looking for my intention to have manifested in my life but rather I am present in each moment of the day knowing that the ways and means of reaching my desired outcome will be revealed as the day unfolds.

As Mark outlined in his Coffee chat on Sunday the Key to the Vault is Gratitude! One of the tasks from week 13 carried forward is that after the sit each morning we must create 3 new gratitude cards and mix  them into achievement/accomplishment  cards that we already have created.

At regular intervals during the day we read with enthusiasm a few of the cards thereby using the law of growth to increase that which we want more of in our lives.

So what about those New Years Resolutions?

I know we have all made them and often the same ones year after year but I’m not making New Years Resolutions this Year. You know and I know they don’t work. I know they not only don’t work but they are damaging. Every time you set a resolution and don’t keep it you are training your mind for failure.

Changing your circumstances, whether that be “getting in shape”, losing 2 stone, giving up the cigarettes requires changing your mind and your habits. That does not happen with a simple resolution to do so on New Years Day.

What I am doing this year is a Complete Makeover. The Master Key Master Mind Alliance Experience is giving me the tools to  change my habits and find my real, inner self and be “natures greatest miracle” personified

Remember We are all “NATURE’S GREATEST MIRACLE’

One of the other things I am truly grateful for is I listened to the New Years Day concert of the Austrian Philharmonic orchestras playing the Blue Danube – Heavenly!

Master Key Experience Week 6 – Making Friends with My future Self

The stand out information for me in week six was regarding procrastination and how we see our future selves. In “Solving the Procrastination Puzzle” Timothy Pychyl Phd explains that when we procrastinate all we are doing is giving problems to our future self and asked the question “why do we do this?”

So in studies where subjects were hooked up to fMRI’s and they were asked to think about:

  1. Their present self

2. A stranger

3. Their future self

It was discovered that they thought of their future self in the same way as they thought of a stranger.

So this week I have decided to make friends with my future self and some of the ways I did that was:

  1. I prepared a healthy take away breakfast in the evening to take to work with me next morning.
  2. I bought the most fabulous spring bulbs and planted them for my future self to enjoy in Spring
  3. I went to bed early enough to have a good sleep before the six o’clock alarm
  4. When I looked “at the girl in the glass” at night and said I love you – I included my past present and future self!
  5. I joined Professor Procrastination on twitter!
  6. Went for a brisk walk with work colleagues at break time – exhilarating!
  7. I got up early every morning did the Master Key reading and sit together with speed reading practice.

How can you befriend your future Self today?
