Master Key Experience Week 1 Happy New MKE Year.

Happy New MKE Year

My lovely daughter surprised me with a Get up and Go Gratitude Journal on Saturday and we got a Polo message from John in our MasterMind group wishing us a Happy New MKE Year – and it really does feel like a New year with all the joy and anticipation that comes with a new beginning and New Year.

Gratitude Journal

” I am now building new habits for myself and “As the words of these scrolls are consumed by my mysterious mind I will begin to awake each morning with a vitality I have never known before” – I very much look forward to that reality.”

Those are the words I wrote at the end of my first ever blog post after watching webinar 1 of the MKE last September.

Having completed the Master Key course last year I now know the truth of this statement from Scroll 1 Og Mandino’s “The Greatest Salesman in the World” It is no longer a hope or a promise from some guru. It is no longer a philosphy written in some holy book it is my lived experience my truth. I know that when I am faithful to the habits and exercises I do wake each morning with an enthusiasm and vitality for the new unfolding day like I have never experienced or known before.

This is not to say that there aren’t challenges and setbacks along the way but my overall mood has massively improved.

So what is this MKE? I hear you ask.

It is a 26 week course based on the Master Key System a programme in book form written by Charles Haanel many many years ago.

You probably have heard of  the film or the book The Secret, which has as its cornerstone the idea of the Law of Attraction.  Rhonda Byrne, the author/producer of The Secret cites The Master Key System as one of her main inspirations.

The Master Key Experience MKKA  is a meticulously designed program which includes  the “sits” or meditations as described in the Master Key System with reading the Og Mandino scrolls and developing your Definite Major Purpose under the tutelage of an expert guide.

As Mark from MKE says by taking this course “You get to find and follow your bliss – and learn how to influence your subconscious so it makes decisions based on your hearts desire effortlessly” 

The Master Key Experience Master Mind Alliance “Does what it says on the Key”

 

 

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 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 12- A Time to Go Within.

Year Celebrations, The Year, Winter Solstice

Today is the winter solstice where I live – A time to reflect and go within as nature does.

In The Master Key Part 12 Haanel advises “It is in the Silence that you get into touch with the Omnipotent power of the subconscious mind from which all power is evolved”

In this weeks lesson Haanel addresses the application of Knowledge using courage and Faith. Haanel repeatedly reminds us that “knowledge does not apply itself”

He goes on to explain that we must firstly have the knowledge of our Power secondly the courage to dare thirdly the Faith to do. These are the essential three steps that propel us forward and prevent us from going backward in the pursuit of what ever it is we want.

Coupled with this is that in order to create anything wonderful we must have a clear picture of what it is we want and then persist until we find the methods to accomplish it. Emotions and feelings, add vitality to our thoughts.  Love is the most powerful of all the emotions and “Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible”

I found this week challenging – the drive to work became more challenging with slippy roads and branches down after a storm the night before that kept me awake for most of the night – but the third scroll from Og Mandino “I Persist – I win” has helped to keep me going”

Now I have two weeks holidays from work – I love Christmas a time to reflect, do lots of cooking and eating, spend time with family and generally relax!

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2020!

Master Key – Week 9

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!

Master key Experience – Week 8- Introducing the Magnificent

Seven, 7, Number, Ranking, Rating, Business, Symbol

This week we are continuing the mental diet still striving to get to 7 days in a row but with the help of the 7 laws of the mind and linking in the other tools loaded in our arsenal since during the past 7 weeks – this is a doable challenge even if it is not easy.

So what are these magnificent 7 laws of the mind:

1. Law of Substitution


We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind ~ try to think about God instead. If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought. Jesus, the Master Teacher, said, “Resist not evil” ~ meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.


2. Law of Relaxation


Mental effort defeats itself ~ exactly the opposite of physical effort. A relaxed, calm state of mind, is the only doorway to progress mentally. Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence.


3. Law of Practice


Practice makes perfect. The 5Ps – Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance. Our bewilderment of magnificence in others, upon further inspection, finds…as Wooden shares ‘you’ll find most of it is practice, the rest of it is work.’ With practice of the correct things, we improve ~ on the other 6 Laws of the Mind.


4. Law of Forgiveness


To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.


5. Law of Dual Thought

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

6. Law of Subconscious


As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand ~ accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.


7. Law of Growth
Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

So is the 7 days mental diet an easy challenge? NO IT IS CERTAINLY NOT

Is it worth the effort? ABSOLUTELY – once we glimpse some of its rewards all the effort and work is forgotten and seems like a no – thing – The REWARDS are SO GREAT!

To your eternal success!

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.

I Love this Photo!

How can you befriend your future Self today?

Master Key Experience Week 3

Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you are capable of becoming.” John Wooden

I had never heard of John Wooden before the MKE course. John Robert Wooden (October 14, 1910 – June 4, 2010) was an American basketball  player and head coach at the University of California, Los Angeles he won ten NCCA national championships in a 12-year period as head coach at UCLA, including a record seven in a row. No other team has won more than four.

I am sharing his Pyramid of success which he worked on for 15 years! because I love his definition of Success.

It begs the question what is the best that I am capable of becoming?

This Blog post is short because I have spent so much time reading about John Wooden – and he is worth the time!

I sign off with one of his Maxims

“Seek opportunities to show you care. The smallest gestures often make the biggest difference”

To your Success,

Breege
