Master Key Week 22 – Change

When we change the way we look at things the things we look at change.

keep calm embrace change
Change is good. Change takes courage. Nothing is constant but change.

I’ve heard these and other sayings about change for probably most of my life. I’ve also observed that some people are afraid of change. Some people embrace it.

The idea of changing the way we look at things and using fear, guilt, anger, hurt feelings and unworthiness as tools to EXPAND my comfort zone has been mind blowing in a very good way! This transformative way of thinking has allowed me to stop and quietly observe and even question “I” about what’s really going on when one of these feelings creeps up.

Recently I felt anger about a situation. First, I observed that I feel anger a lot. Those peptides must be having a feast off that surge of energy! Second, I realize that anger is a power tool and that I can substitute productivity for anger. I envision this massive power tool that’s more like Luke Skywalker’s light saber and I’m good and wielding it!

The anger energy is transformed into feelings of compassion, love, patience and determination to be the change I wish to see in the world. Real change comes from thought selection, thought control. I can be what I will to be. I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!

Last night I watched the movie I Am. Instantly I knew that the filmmaker was the same Hollywood Director who commissioned the documentary Happy. Due to a terrifying bike accident and horrible concussion, the filmmaker realized that although he had the financial wealth many would literally kill for, he was not happy.

The Director, Tom Shadyac’s interviews with renown authors, poets, teachers, religious leaders and scientists allowed him to investigate the fundamental problem that causes all the other problems in the world and also allowed him to reflect on his own life choices of excess, greed and eventual healing.

He made drastic changes in his life. One was moving out of his mansion into a trailer park were he has more human interactions and genuine human connections. He gave up his limo to ride his bike to work everyday. He now has more love and appreciation for life itself, I believe.

In my own life, I’ve recently noticed how much “stuff” I have accumulated that I don’t use, want or even know exactly where it is in the house. I’ve realized I can’t say I’m going to use it someday if I don’t even know where it is. What’s the point? What’s the point if it doesn’t bring me joy?

Change. Awareness is the first step towards change.

I’m aware that I have too much stuff and created a mastermind with a friend for help. Seeing the area in question I was actually ashamed to have her see it since she helped me before about a year ago! Was it guilt? Self-directed anger because she helped me so generously and now it looks crazy again! Yes, probably so.

Change. Transform. I took those feelings of guilt and shame and went into major declutter mode. At least now I won’t feel embarrassed when she comes over. And more importantly, I used what I once thought of as a negative emotion to create a positive change. opportunity ahead

I love my friend and I appreciate her help. My heart felt bad so I knew I needed to express my gratitude by not presenting her with another disaster. It means that I do have “home training”, as they say in the south. I have a heart of appreciation and can express my behavior as a human being.

Grateful for change.

Master Key Week 21

83f47ed3ebc764b1be79630e4346f25cI live this day as if it is my last.

And what shall I do with this last precious day which remains in my keeping?

My PPN of Legacy and my DMP involve supporting a group of youth eradicate nuclear weapons and create a “new clear” future by 2030.

I have 8 grandchildren and 2 grand puppies. I want to see them grow up and live in peace and harmony with everyone and everything in the world.

I don’t think it is too much to ask.

Everyday I make some cause towards my Starburst Legacy DMP. I take some action to encourage someone…anyone…everyone I encounter. I know they are happy to have had me in their environment.

I am grateful to those who fostered me into a capable person for world peace and I strive to do the same.

What would the person I intend to become do next?

Keep doing what I’m doing to advance my cause and expand my comfort zone to include and achieve my entire DMP.

What am I pretending not to know?

…waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortunes, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart, for why throw good after bad?

I live this day as if it is my last.

And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks.

I offer gratitude for one more day to accomplish my heart’s desires. One more day to improve myself and teach others how to do the same. I’m grateful for one more day to create value in the world.

Procrastination I destroy with action; doubt I bury under faith; fear I dismember with confidence.

Do it now!

I am grateful for the MKMMA #MasterKeyExperience #NothingLikeIt.

So much of the philosophy is what I’ve practiced for years but reading and studying Og and Haanel and doing the scientifically proven exercises are life changing!

I am grateful!12383601_1720110211538334_867606770_n

Master Key Week 20 – Expansion

Expansion!

2016 is my personal year of expansion in this new era. Expanding my prayer. Expanding my state of life. Expanding my courage. I believe striving to expand myself in these areas will lead to absolute victory.

I am determined to expand my state of life. I must expand my courage in order to eradicate the negative functions within and show actual proof. Winning over self – a fierce battle indeed!

courage-wordle-word-poetry-art

One thing that stood out for me in Week 20 was to “expand my comfort zone” instead of “getting out of my comfort zone”. I’d never heard that or thought of that before. Wow! What a novel idea! Thanks again #MasterKeyExperience #NothingLikeIt!

Mark said it’s time to get going to fund my DMP (definite major purpose). Grimace. That’s it, the weak link in my chain of expansion. The starburst legacy I’m creating is more focused on the treasures of the heart right now, however, the treasures of the storehouse are necessary if I am to fulfill my philanthropic desires and accomplish all of my DMP so I know he’s right. Still, I hesitate.

I’ve been in a state of expansion/contraction around my direct sales businesses for far too long. That’s over! I will learn the skills I need to succeed. I can be what I will to be! Courageous expansion!

Og says things like –
I increase my knowledge of mankind, myself and the goods I sell, thus my sales multiply.
The duties of today I shall fulfill today.
I will make more calls than ever before.
I will sell more goods than ever before.
I will earn more gold than ever before.
Procrastination I destroy with action; doubt I bury under faith; fear I dismember with confidence.

These all sound good but can I really manifest enough inner expansion to accomplish them? Do I let the fear, guilt, anger, hurt feelings and unworthiness make me contract instead of expand at the crucial moment and lose the inner battle? No!!

Change requires effort! I will make the effort. I focus on expanding my comfort zone! I’m ready and committed to taking action, making causes, learning, growing, serving, succeeding. Do it now! Expand.

Og is right, I am not on this earth by chance. I’m here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. So, I’ve got to apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all.

It was very encouraging to hear that I am genetically predisposed to succeed! Whew! That’s a relief. As they say, what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

I’m so grateful for MKMMA teaching me more ways to expand my mind, expand my heart and expand my legacy. #MasterKeyExperience #NothingLikeIt

Master Key – Week 19

I will live this day as if it is my last. Og Mandino

I think I’d better do just that. My neighbor came by yesterday to tell me her sister and housemate passed suddenly. The news brought me so much sadness. She was a lovely person and a good neighbor. We stood outside many times over the years laughing and talking about everything and nothing. I will miss her.

Another friend asked me to participate in his husband’s memorial in 2 weeks. A friend’s Mother’s memorial is this Saturday. The year has just begun and I’ve attended a couple of memorials with more scheduled and learned that a friend’s cancer is now terminal.

We seem to be mostly living in yesterday or tomorrow. Death and dying seems far away until they aren’t. I know we’re all moving in that direction but instead of worrying about what might happen I choose to work on and make the best of what I have right this minute.

I will live this day as if it is my last.

I will call and text my children everyday just to say how much I love them. In fact, Sunday night I felt so much joy and appreciation for having them in my life I sent them both text messages to say that. What an amazing feeling to have those messages of love and appreciation returned.

I love Og’s way of expression. “I lift mine arms with thanks for this priceless gift of a new day.” “Therefore, each hour of this day will I cherish for it can never return.” “The duties of today I shall fulfill today.” “This day I will make the best day of my life.”

I will live this day as if it is my last!

Master Key – Week 18 – Gratitude

Gratitude, Gratitude, Gratitude!!!

As I sneezed, sniffed and coughed my way through week 18, I am filled with gratitude for the play date with the 3 year old where I caught the cold; my great health in spite of the cold; the ability to stay home and take care of myself; my wonderful, supportive husband, loving daughters and awesome grandchildren!

I’m bursting with gratitude for the #MasterKeyExperience and my introduction to the 7 Day Mental Diet. Somehow over the last week or so I slipped off my diet and realized some days that my mind ran amuck with negative thoughts.

Many times it took me longer than 7 seconds to realize I had gone off on a mental tangent, of which I am not proud. Reliving old hurts or insensitivities. Ruminating over stuff that happened days, weeks, months even years ago. How is that helpful? Why are my thoughts going there?

Once I caught myself and extinguished the stinking thinking, again I had such a sense of gratitude for the 7 Laws of the Mind. The law of substitution kicked in and I replaced those negative thoughts with positive ones.

I have gratitude for the master mind alliance and my master mind partner. We dialogue, listen closely to each other, laugh and encourage one another. We agreed to restart the diet together today. She’s on the east coast, I’m on the west but we’re working in harmony to support each other’s DMP success. Check out her week 18 blog https://masterkeyannad.wordpress.com/.

How can I possibly express my gratitude for the Ted Talk that was featured in week 18? To see the scientific data that affirms what we’ve learned and done for weeks is amazing. Writing 3 gratitudes, performing 2 random acts of kindness, a nightly written statement of a positive experience from the day, exercise while listening to or reading my DMP and the sit. These 5 seemingly small acts actually makes us happier people.

I offer heartfelt gratitude to Mark J., Davene, the digital connection team, all the guides and every participant of the #MasterKeyExperience. Shuffling through those accomplishment cards allows me to remember that I’ve done some pretty cool things in my life.

I’ve been an obituary reader for many years so imagine my surprise and gratitude when that became an assignment! A very wise man once said in order to understand life you must first study death. I like looking at the photos and then the age of the deceased. Did the family choose a recent photo or one from several decades ago? I feel sadness when the person is young. As Og asks “is it that they have accomplished their purpose?”

I’d like to think that we are honoring the lives of those whose obituaries we read. Acknowledging that they made a difference even to a total stranger who looks at them and wonders what they would do to trade places with me. This act heightens my gratitude for breath in my body and another day, another opportunity to create value.
