Week 17-Decisiveness

Decisiveness

 

 

This week I was focusing on Decisiveness for Franklin’s Makeover, and when I choose to focus on it, I realized that it isn’t just life making, HUGE but everything that is a choice is a decision. It definitely kept me paying more attention to my own life as to how many decisions I DO make, and how many decisions that I just put off, or let someone else make, such as dinner, or what to do, or other interests. I spend a lot of time trying no to upset people or upset the apple cart per se. Making a decision does not mean that you are controlling, it just means that you are being decisive.

The first time that Mark mentioned the Kauai Live Event I was all over it. I had friends who had attended the Go90Grow event and I am very aware that live events change lives, and people. But when I saw the cost and started working the full trip out in my mind, I starting saying crazy things like I ‘can’t’ do this, or there is ‘no way’ I can afford this. I was talking to a friend of mine, and a fellow MKMMA individual and i was trying to choose my words carefully as other MKE friends tend to hold you more accountable… ;) and as I was trying to word things eloquently and positively not negatively, I realized that I was being run by my old blueprint, just dress up pretending to act! I needed to MAKE A DECISION and stop trying to make excuses or trying to see if I can afford to make the trip or any other nonsense. It hit me like a ton of bricks; and I went and signed up. I still don’t have everything worked out, but the event and flights are booked! I’m GOING to Kauai; now I just need to keep with my DMP and my plan of action; and stop finding the reasons I cannot; and start creating the reasons I can!!

How is your resonance? With yourself? Your Family? Nature? How is your resonation with the Universe?

The vibrations of mental forces are the finest and consequently the most powerful in existence. To those who perceive the nature and transcendency of mental force, all physical power sinks into insignificance.17:2 -Haanel

We need to take the time to truly be at peace with our self and to be alone with our thoughts and spirit. We wish to Master concentration as it is the key to our future, and creating the most beautiful life there is to create.

Concentration is much misunderstood; there seems to be an idea of effort or activity associated with it, when just the contrary is necessary. The greatness of an actor lies in the fact that he forgets himself in the portrayal of his character, becoming so identified with it, that the audience is swayed by the realism of the performance. This will give you a good idea of true concentration; you should be so interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon. All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own.  17:6-7 -Haanel

Concentrate so much on your dream, your goals, your DMP that there is no other thought that can even squeeze into your mind. Concentrate so that there is no option other than for your dream to become a reality and to manifest perfection in your mind of the perfect dream, and there is left nothing but for the Universe to make it a reality

Concentration

Desire is largely subconscious; conscious desire rarely realizes its object when the latter is out of immediate reach. Subconscious desire arouses the latent faculties of the mind, and difficult problems seem to solve themselves. 17:8 -Haanel

What is wrong with this picture? If we set a conscious goal, there is little chance that we will reach it if is out of our reach at all? But if we set the goal in our subconsious mind, mysterious source which never sleeps, which creates my dreams, and often makes me
act in ways I do not comprehend. (OG Scroll 1) If this is where we set our goals, this leads us to our ultimate goals, happiness, and success? Yes Concentration paired with Desire!

All mental discovery and attainment are the result of desire plus concentration; desire is the strongest mode of action; the more persistent the desire, the more authoritative the revelation. Desire added to concentration will wrench any secret from nature. 17:15 -Haanel

Remember that fundamentally the subconscious is omnipotent; there is no limit to the things that can be done when it is given the power to act. Your degree of success is determined by the nature of your desire. If the nature of your desire is in harmony with Natural Law or the Universal Mind, it will gradually emancipate the mind and give you invincible courage. 17:25 -Haanel

I truly love this. We can DO ANYTHING! be ANYTHING! we can CREATE ANYTHING! As long as it is in accordance with the Natural law and in Harmony with all whom it comes in contact with. But lets not remember that without being in Harmony and without being in the flow… Haanel states that

Premature wealth or position cannot be retained because it has not been earned; we get only what we give, and those who try to get without giving always find that the law of compensation is relentlessly bringing about an exact equilibrium. 17:29 -Haanel

One of my biggest struggles is fear, and it is crippling. I take IMMENSE strength in the words as Haanel closed Part 17:34-36

If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.

If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.

If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health.

Fail EARLY, Fail OFTEN, and FAIL FORWARD!!

 

Week 16-***KINDNESS***

This week has been my last week of catch up, as I completed week 14, 15, and 16. I am staying the course, I persist and I WIN. One of the things that I really haven’t fully immersed myself in is the shapes. I have them on my dream board, POA card and SERVICE card, and all of my ‘flash cards’ but not in my DMP. I just ‘hadn’t gotten around to it.’ no hadn’t made it important enough to do. I was sitting with our newest employee and she is here to be a floater, and to know every employees job, so that when someone takes a vacation, there is someone to cover their tasks and you don’t come home to a mountain. We were sitting at my desk and I was trying to explain how and why I do what I do on one of my tasks. and I was switching between red, black, and blue ink. and it wasn’t just to change the colour, but RED was for this, BLUE for this, and BLACK for this. and I was apologizing as I said to her I knew it was a little confusing and that I am just really colour coded. I literally stopped mid word on coded and felt like someone had smacked me in the back of a head with a foam bat. I have a package of 12 colour highlighters, and I have 5 coloures pens….but I can’t figure out why I need coloured shapes in my DMP. Things seem clear, and that you are getting it or, you ‘know better’ HAHAHAHA! again, this isn’t Mark’s first Rodeo…so why is it that we keep thinking that we have a better way to invent the wheel. It was a real a-ha moment for me, and really got me back focused on the basics.

Franklin’s Makeover

What a FABULOUS exercise! I admit that I have done a terrible job keeping track of how many times I am seeing this around me, but I am surprised by how much I am being the observer. Last week was Self Control, and even with the crazy focus on Kindness, I was constantly noticing when I was, or was not utilizing self control. I enjoyed looking for kindness, as a lot of the time…I was saying more ‘that wasn’t very kind’ and again; I realized that I was not being observant to the good, I was being blindsided but the negative. With this week being Kindness based, I took a real HARD go at the mental diet again. Although I restarted it 4 or 5 times one morning just in drive thru alone! I did notice now often I am catching myself now, and how often I am derailing those thoughts before I am hitting 7 seconds, or a half hour rant later. I may not have a full day, opinion and negative free, but the joy is certainly raising and I am feeling better every day about who I am, and seeing a CLEARER mental picture every day of WHO I intend to be.

The power to create depends entirely upon spiritual power; there are three steps, idealization, visualization and materialization. Every captain of industry depends upon this power exclusively. In an article in Everybody’s Magazine, Henry M. Flagler, the Standard Oil multi-millionaire, admitted that the secret of his success was his power to see a thing in its completeness. The following conversation with the reporter shows his power of idealization, concentration and visualization, all spiritual powers: “Did you actually vision to yourself the whole thing? I mean, did you, or could you, really close your eyes and see the tracks? And the trains running? And hear the whistles blowing? Did you go as far as that?” “Yes.” “How clearly?” “Very clearly.” 16:8-9 -Haanel

We encourage our children to use their imagination and to create wonderful experienced and adventures in their head, but at what point do we stop using those tremendous powers? Why do we stop dreaming and seeing a better reality? How is it that we lose the ability to hold an image or believe in our mind?

Whatever enters the mind through the senses or the objective mind will impress the mind and result in a mental image which will become a pattern for the creative energies. These experiences are largely the result of environment, chance, past thinking and other forms of negative thought, and must be subjected to careful analysis before being entertained. On the other hand, we can form our own mental images, through our own interior processes of thought regardless of the thoughts of others, regardless of exterior conditions, regardless of environment of every kind, and it is by the exercise of this power that we can control our own destiny, body, mind and soul.16:15 -Haanel

The Dreamers have the real control, for in our world within we control what we allow to affect us. It is OUR Belief; whether built on our own thought or someone else’s opinions, it is what WE have ALLOWED ourselves to believe. We can think of anything and have anything and have ANY life we wish if we are only to believe it and TRULY TRULY hold on to this ideal.

And finally, the vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life, it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything necessary for its complete development. If the thought is destructive, it will have within itself the germ of its own dissolution; it will die, but in the process of dying, it will bring sickness, disease, and every other form of discord. 16:21-22 -Haanel

Since we know that the fabric of our mind creates everything ahead of us, we know that we must ONLY entertain positive, abundant and harmonious thoughts, and a negative t

Visualization must, of course, be directed by the will; we are to visualize exactly what we want; we must be careful not to let the imagination run riot. Imagination is a good servant but a poor master, and unless it is controlled it may easily lead us into all kinds of speculations and conclusions which have no basis or foundation of fact whatever. Every kind of plausible opinion is liable to be accepted without any analytical examination and the inevitable result is mental chaos. 16:35 -Haanel

We know that we must trust and keep vigilant the Gatekeeper of our world within. Let the Creativity run, but feed it constructive and positive energy, guiding the dreams straight and toward fruition. ‘Every kind of plausible opinion is liable to be accepted without any analytical examination and the inevitable result is mental chaos.’ Let us maintain our control of our future, our souls, and world.

Peace be the Journey

Week 15-Kicker Cards

Keep flipping and flipping some more. This is one area that I was behind in so I started with the minimum 30, and then added 30, and then he said add another 30…well at this time I was reading you can’t get the maximum by doing the minimum work! …so I counted out 60 index cards into a pile and went at them. I was 2 weeks behind when I started the gratitude cards so I sat down and wrote out 21 (one week) to at least get me moving forward and then started with three a day. I was having more trouble with the kicker cards though. I feel like I live such a secluded life some days, that I just go to work and back, and only interact with those few people then I come home and study to catch up…I don’t really interact with people. Part of it, is that I just wasn’t open and observant to what was happening around me. I enjoy the flipping, hard to get more then a couple cards without smiling and feeling a couple inches taller.

All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth. That we reap what we sow is mathematically exact. We gain permanent strength exactly to the extent of the effort required to overcome difficulties. 15:7-8  -Haanel

Well thanks a bunch Mr. Haanel! how true?!? If we aren’t going to learn from life’s circumstances, then life (universe) is just going to keep throwing it our way, how can we move forward of we aren’t even learning the basics? we need to open up and be the observer, why are the same things happening over and over? Why is it that I am continuing to fail over and over. What am I focusing on that is not in vibration with the world or dream I intend to keep.

We know that the Universal Thought has for its goal the creation of form, and we know that the individual thought is likewise forever attempting to express itself in form, and we know that the word is a thought form, and a sentence is a combination of thought forms, therefore, if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are exact, that they are put together carefully, because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success. 15:20-Haanel

Over and over we are being shown that we are to be CAREFUL of the thoughts we keep and the words we use. This is a reflection of us! we need to be CLEAR and PRECISE with our vision and dream.

Words may become mental places that will live forever, or they may become shacks which the first breeze will carry away. They may delight the eye as well as the ear; they may contain all knowledge; in them we find the history of the past as well as the hope of the future; they are living messengers from which every human and superhuman activity is born.15:22 -Haanel

We always seem to focus on the negative side of things, why there isn’t a better this, or a faster this, or why they can’t just do things this way.

There is a principle of Mathematics, but none of error; there is a principle of health, but none of disease; there is a principle of truth, but none of dishonesty; there is a principle of light, but none of darkness, and there is a principle of abundance, but none of poverty. How shall we know that this is true? Because if we apply the principle of Mathematics correctly we shall be certain of our results. Where there is health there will be no disease. If we know the Truth we cannot be deceived by error. If we let in light there can be no darkness, and where there is abundance there can be no poverty. 15:24-25 -Haanel

This really made me sit and think the first time I read it. There is no principle of error, or disease or dishonesty, or poverty….these are not things to focus or study on. KNOW the TRUTH! KNOW ABUNDANCE!!! KNOW LIGHT!! Focus on these, and there will be nothing else for you to worry.

Think truly, and thy thoughts Shall the world’s famine feed; Speak truly, and each word of thine Shall be a fruitful seed; Live truly, and thy life shall be A great and noble creed.

Horatio Bonar

Cool Runnings

I picked Cool Runnings and Rudy as my choices for movie watching. I was unable to get a copy of Rudy yet, but I watched Cool Runnings on Netflix

DMP (Definite Major Purpose)

Derice Bannock had an incredibly clear DMP he KNEW beyond a shadow of a doubt that “He was BORN to be an Olympian.” Derice practiced, dreamed, focused, and put all of his focus and energy into this believe and dream. He didn’t have a goal of being an Olympian, but he was BORN to be one. Every fiber of his being working together to one end result.

PMA (Positive mental attitude)

He was born to run, driven, and Persistent!!!He knew that he was an olympian, and he saw himself as one everyday.

POA (Plan of Action)

Derice was GOING to make this happen!!! He BELIEVED without a shadow of a doubt that they were going to be the FIRST Jamaican Bobsled team.

First he had to convince a man that had given up on everything, especially himself, to reach inside and take a chance on something he didn’t want to do, had no believe in, and was the FARTHEST thing from his mind.

Second …he needed a team! On an island of sun and sand, he needed to convince 3 people that hey wanted to push a speeding bullet down a shute of ice.

Thirdly they had to find money to GET themselves to Canada as NO ONE believed in them or wanted to back them!!

Fourth they needed a Sled

Fifth, they had to make qualifying time

Sixth, the Olympic Alliance committee kicked them out.

Derice literally harassed the coach to help them, NO didn’t mean anything to him, it just meant, try another attempt. Even when he got a room full of prospects and the coach scared them all away with the ‘joys’ of a bobsled, Derice was’t going to be brought down! NO WAS NOT AN OPTION. He did not comprehend the word quit or give up. He takes 4 people, 3 who want to kill each other; and says here’s your team! The Jamaican Olympic program wasn’t about to sponsor or support an island winter sport; in fact NO ONE wanted to believe or back them. They went business to business and pitched their idea. Sanka did some street music and Yul Brenner held arm wrestling competitions. Biggest donation came from Junior selling his pristine car and donated every dollar to the cause. They DID get to Canada, and they did survive the temperature shock!! Coach Blitzer meets an old teammate and swings them a half busted sled for them to try and use. Every step of the way they are made a laughing stock, but not for ONE second do they loose sight and give up. The committee shortens the Qualifying Time, and they JUST slip under, Committee decided to unjustly kick them out over personal issues; and Irv goes back to fight for them. They NEVER said DIE, then NEVER Said SURRENDER. QUIT was literally NOT in their vocabulary at all.

Even when they made their last race, and the unforeseen circumstances resulting in a bolt coming loose and them loosing control in one of the turns; even after an unbelievable crash…they still were not willing to throw in the towel. THEY HAD TO FINISH THE RACE!!! As those four men carried their sled across the finish line; they proved to everyone , and themselves, they they were winners! and they were OLYMPIANS! and they had done EVERYTHING that they set out to do

MMA

Their Alliance wan’t all love in the beginning but it grew into a support group of true friends who would support ANY one of them, through anything!!!

Derice, Sanka, Yul Brenner, Junior, and Irv Blitzer (coach)

14-The Power of Prayer

I am truly blessed to be a part of a secret sister program in our church. It started over 15 years ago, and when I moved away from the college (home) the program was struggling so I staying in it, and helped promote it at the beginning of each year. Well 14 years after I moved away I am still a part of the program, with my mothers help. After Christmas we have our reveal get together in the beginning of January, as lives are slowing down more and hopefully more people will be free to get together. This year my girlfriend was asked to do the worship. She got up and told a story that I haven’t thought about in probably almost 30 years. Now as soon as she started talking, I ‘knew’ she was going to talk about when Brody her brother got hurt, and I got chills. I realized I never knew the full story. When Holly was 5 they lived in a place with an unfinished basement; and they were old army barracks. When you went down the stairs to the basement they were slats of 2x4s and a 2×2 for a railing. Being 6, Holly had only one job! It was her job to close the gate at the top of the stairs so her 16 month old brother, who incessantly followed her everywhere, would not get hurt. So Auntie Sandra had sent Holly to go get something in the basement, and as she got half way down she remembered the gate and as she turned to go back up, she was he brother try to take the first step down and fall 9 feet off the stairs to the right and land directly on his head on the concrete. Brody didn’t make a sound or a movement, being 6, Holly yelled at mom, “Brody did it again.” Auntie Sandra came down the stairs and grabbed Brody’s non responsive body and just held him and rocked for about half an hour before she realized that she had to call for help. They took Brody to the hospital and he was rushed an hour away to Edmonton Hospital, as his head was twice the size, black and blue, and they were sure he wouldn’t make the night. That night they went to our church and begged for prayers. Our Church prayed non stop!! As Uncle Ron and Auntie Sandra drove up to Edmonton to say their goodbyes the next morning, everyone continued to pray. as Uncle Ron walked into Brody’s room, Brody sat up, and said ‘hi dad!’ Ron took his glove off and threw it at Brody and he through it back.

This child was surely on deaths door, if not than permanent brain and physical damage, yet NO DAMAGE!!! To be truthful everything Brody touches seems to have the Midas touch. Now why do I share this heart wrenching and amazing miraculous story? Because escaping all odds, this boys should be dead, with the ONLY explainable reason being HUNDREDS of people focused on the outcome, and the healing power!

 

A scientific understanding of this principle will explain the wonderful results which are secured through the power of prayer. The results which are secured in this way are not brought about by any special dispensations of providence, but on the contrary, they are the result of the operation of a perfectly natural law. There is, therefore, nothing either religious or mysterious about it. 14:23 -Haanel

But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking. If you enter into the discipline necessary to bring about a radical change in your life, you must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full consideration, and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision. 14:26-27 -Haanel

May God be with you and whatever burdens are on our heart and soul. Turn them over to the Master Teacher, and know that all things work together for him that loves the Lord. See you with your Crown of Jewels Sitting by the tree of life

Peace be the Journey

Week 14-The Struggle

Christmas at my parents, was so peaceful this year. It was just my boyfriend and parents, as my brother and family were not able to make it, really gave me time to reflect on how much chaos it normally entails. There was no webby this week, and unlike Thanksgiving where I slowly started to fall off the cart,  I have been going full force forward. I have been trying to catch up and have really overloaded my reading so that I can continue to grow, catch up, and make the most of the rest of the course. I have been reading Haanel’s week 11, 12, and 13. I even got into the members alliance area to share a bit of my struggle with doing well for 2 months and then starting to struggle and fight the ways. I felt like a failure! You know every time Mark tells us to do something, it is because he has done this before, he KNOWS what he is doing, and he know how EVERY SINGLE DIFFERENT person learns differently!!!

SO FOR CRYING OUT LOUD; WHY DO WE JUST NOT LISTEN TO HIM?!?!

I haven’t made excellent use of the members alliances area. I have gone in a little bit, kind of like a new person showing up at church, and kind of just sticking your head in the door and being like, oh just looking… For heavens sakes MAN!!! Just do the work!!!! it compounds, and while you may not feel the need to reach out in the beginning, you might just have the right words for someone else; and when you DO need that extra boost you know where to go. I was really reaching out for a bit of motivation as I was coming back into this full force like the fury of the Canadian Prairie winter. I shared how I hadn’t been faithful with the readings, or anything really, and how I was trying to get back into the saddle. I hadn’t even TOUCHED OG scroll 3 to speak of, and all these comments about persistence came pouring out. For some reason; when we get all covered in the fear, doubt, and resentment; and let them pull us down to the dark corner, we forget that we are NOT ALONE!!! One comment made me realize that this individual was dealing with the exact same thing, and I was sure that many others were as well, just maybe not quite as vocal. I felt like I was lifted stories out of the basement to the top floor, and shown. YOU ARE AMAZING! and I never gave up!

Earl Nightingale’s Strangest Secret is REALLY where my journey in discovery started. I actually have the strangest secret downloaded on my phone, and I have started to make a habit of trying to put it on as I get in the car and drive to work. What a beautiful way to start my day!

I was NOT delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am NOT a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a LION and I REFUSE to TALK, to WALK, to SLEEP with the SHEEP. I will hear NOT those who weep and complain, for their disease is CONTAGIOS. Let them JOIN the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is NOT my destiny… -OG Mandino (Scroll 3)

I LOVE this part of the scroll, and it EMPOWERS my soul every time I read it. I am pretty sure this is the more enthusiastic I read anything. It PUMPS ME UP!!!! I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWERFUL, LOVING, HARMONIOUS, and HAPPY!!

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner. -OG Mandino (Scroll 3)

Why is it that we think/feel that we deserve a free ride? That we need not put any work towards our success and happiness? Everything that has gotten society to where were are today was incredulously hard work! Why is it that society as a whole doesn’t want to dig in and push forward, nose to the grind stone, trying our BEST to be the BEST version of ourselves.

I will never consider defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools. I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.

As I have been repeating this over and over this week it has really been like a NEON sign, and every time I try to say can’t, or not able, or impossible I catch myself and think, is it really impossible? or am I being cranky because it will cause a little bit of hard work? We know it is all mental, it is all how we think, so why are we talking in just negative tones? Why are we allowing our vibration to be lowered with the negativity, doubt, and fear?

Week 13-Law of Substitution/Dual Thought

This was Christmas at the in-laws this weekend, and I had been terribly Sick!! So I was taking it pretty easy, no sweets, no alcohol; basically nothing that would in anyway affect my system or my mood. I was just exhausted and drained. My boyfriend had been lightly drinking all day, and come 10 pm, was getting a little short with the kids as they were getting ready to leave. One thing led to another and he got up very upset and went to the other room. I tried to talk to him a bit, but there wasn’t much interest in talking at that point. I got so upset through my old peptides reacting that I was furious with him, and the way he was acting. I wound up stressing myself into more of a headache and a migraine, so I went to lie down in another room where there was no one, traffic, or lights. as I sat there trying to focus on healing and peace. I was trying to calm myself down and stop rehashing it all in my head. as I was laying there fuming at ‘him’ (HA! little did I think things through); it was like a light switch turned on, and I instantly, consciously thought about the most peaceful and beautiful memory I have to reflect upon, and it was like a weight was lifted off my head and my heart in seconds. I was blown away. I almost started crying as the INSTANT realization that this was working, even with my two and a half weeks off, and only just trying to focus myself back to getting on track, and it just showed to me how important that foundation is! How the little repetitions really add up to HUGE change <3

This weeks webinar Mark touched base on how people fall out in the third month, and how they just stop doing the daily tasks, and had 3 old members come and speak…would you believe that I slept through this webinar? I woke up at quarter to 3…My old blueprint was working overtime trying to get me to give up this ‘silly attempt’ and let go. I will LET GO; but I will let go of the OLD BLUEPRINT and PEPTIDES!! I even got mad at myself for sleeping in. When I rewatched the webby when it was posted, I was blown away by how much this webinar was intended to keep me in an obvious check of myself daily, to keep to the high road, and stay the path.

 

If then, we find that certain persons seem to possess unusual power, what are we to conclude? First, we may say, it is not so, which is simply an acknowledgment of our lack of information because every honest investigator admits that there are many strange and previously unaccountable phenomena constantly taking place. Those, however, who become acquainted with the creative power of thought, will no longer consider them unaccountable. Second, we may say that they are the result of supernatural interference, but a scientific understanding of Natural Laws will convince us that there is nothing supernatural. Every phenomenon is the result of an accurate definite cause, and the cause is an immutable law or principle, which operates with invariable precision, whether the law is put into operation consciously or unconsciously. Third, we may say that we are on “forbidden ground,” that there are some things which we should not know. This objection was used against every advance in human knowledge. Every individual who ever advanced a new idea, whether a Columbus, a Darwin, a Galileo, a Fulton or an Emerson, was subjected to ridicule or persecution; so that this objection should receive no serious consideration; but, on the contrary, we should carefully consider every fact which is brought to our attention; by doing this we will more readily ascertain the law upon which it is based. 13: 12-14 -Haanel

It isn’t mystical unseen powers, but natural law! Immutable, tangible law. This MOST CERTAINLY should be known!!! We should shout from the top of every mountain and rooftop! YOU!!!! YOU!!! are in COMPLETE control of your future and your life! YOU are the great creator!

Thought will bring about conditions in correspondence with the predominant mental attitude. Therefore, if we fear disaster, as fear is a powerful form of thought, disaster will be the certain result of our thinking. It is this form of thought which frequently sweeps away the result of many years of toil and effort. 13:16 -Haanel

Once again, it is about our PREDOMINANT mental attitude, not our reading for an hour a day (YES IT HELPS!!! and a START!!) But you cannot spout venom for 23 hours a day and read Haanel and Hill for an hour and expect a rose garden, you are still going to get a weed patch, but there might be a couple flowers poking through. We have to dwell on being a better us EVERY waking minute. We must WILL to be better and really truly truly wish it. So that when we start being opinionated or rude, or even mean; that 1 out of every 10 times we catch ourselves, and then it becomes 2 out of every 10, then 3, 4, 7….and all of a sudden we look in the mirror and that gal (or guy) staring back at us is smiling; as we truly HAVE been persistent, and we have WON! What then shall we think about?

What, then, is the proper method of procedure? What are we to think in order to secure what we really desire? What you and I desire, what we all desire, what every one is seeking, is Happiness and Harmony. If we can be truly happy we shall have everything the world can give. If we are happy ourselves we can make others happy. 13:18 -Haanel

HARMONIOUS and HAPPY THOUGHTS

In the first place, we must put our knowledge into practice. Nothing can be accomplished in any other way. The athlete may read books and lessons on physical training all his life, but unless he begins to give out strength by actual work he will never receive any strength; he will eventually get exactly what he gives; but he will have to give it first. It is exactly the same with us; we will get exactly what we give, but we shall have to give it first. It will then return to us many fold, and the giving is simply a mental process, because thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect. 13:22 -Haanel

Practice makes perfect right? I mean we practice our musical talents, reading, writing, work skills, and athletics, there is no difference in life. We must work to be OUR BEST; and add to a better world. BE HAPPY and project LOVE, JOY, and AFFLUENCE; everywhere you go

We have found that everything we get comes to us by the Law of Attraction. A happy thought cannot exist in an unhappy consciousness; therefore the consciousness must change, and, as the consciousness changes, all conditions necessary to meet the changed consciousness must gradually change, in order to meet the requirements of the new situation. 13:24 -Haanel

Small steps rooting new causes and effects.

27. When this tremendous fact begins to permeate your consciousness, when you really come into a realization of the fact that you (not your body, but the Ego), the “I,” the spirit which thinks is an integral part of the great whole, that it is the same in substance, in quality, in kind, that the Creator could create nothing different from Himself, you will also be able to say, “The Father and I are one” and you will come into an understanding of the beauty, the grandeur, the transcendental opportunities which have been placed at your disposal. 13:27 -Haanel

We are one, and we are separated only by degree and understanding. We must our mind, and free it of all inharmonious thoughts and feelings. We must let go of all resentment, or ill thoughts, no matter how justified.

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

~The Law of Forgiveness~

One of my hardest laws I struggle with, and one of my main focus, resentment is no form of love.

Peace be the Journey

 

Week 12 – Thought impregnated with Love

This power to think is common to all. Man is, because he thinks. Man’s power to think is infinite, consequently his creative power is unlimited.

We know that thought is building for us the thing we think of and actually bringing it nearer, yet we find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety or discouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and which continually send the things we desire further away, so that it is often one step forward and two steps backward.

The only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward. Eternal vigilance is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do. 12:2-4 -Haanel

Marcus Aurelius said, Man is what he thinks about! We have this incredible power and can do anything with it, so if we know this, and we know that we are in control…then why the fear, anxiety, and discouragement? I mean certainly most people do not realize the potential they have resting like a sleeping giant inside them. we must persist and continue to persist; regardless of the day past.

KNOW that you have this power and ability to control it

Have the COURAGE to dare to dream, and dare to use it

FAITH!! You must hold the faith to your heart, and mind knowing that it WILL be and there is no other option for things but to develop and move forward in accordance to the plans you have laid out for it

Of course, worry, fear, and all negative thoughts produce a crop after their kind; those who harbor thoughts of this kind must inevitably reap what they have sown.

12:11 -Haanell

That which you sew, so shall you reap. Our mind does not care what we put its tremendous power to, that is in our control. We must protect it and guard it with happy and harmonious thoughts. If we plant negativity, it will have no choice but to multiply it and return it to you in full abundance. So be Kind, patient, considerate, happy, and harmonious. Plant the seed of Joy and Love and have those returned to you in fantastic abundance.

It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force, called the law of attraction. All natural laws are irresistible, the law of Gravitation, or Electricity, or any other law operates with mathematical exactitude. There is no variation; it is only the channel of distribution which may be imperfect. If a bridge falls, we do not attribute the collapse to any variation of the law of gravitation. If a light fails us, we do not conclude that the laws governing electricity cannot be depended upon, and if the law of attraction seems to be imperfectly demonstrated by an inexperienced or uninformed person, we are not to conclude that the greatest and most infallible law upon which the entire system of creation depends has been suspended. We should rather conclude that a little more understanding of the law is required, for the same reason that a correct solution of a difficult problem in Mathematics is not always readily and easily obtained. 12:21 -Haanel

This passage really resonated with me this week…Have you ever dropped something and blamed gravity for it? of course not, and when the blender stops working, it is not the Electricity that has failed, but the appliance. The Laws of nature are always there. They are always working! This is no different with the law of attraction. If we are not focusing on love, kindness, and abundance, and our life takes a nasty dip downward, I do not see that the law of attraction has brought to me EXACTLY what I have put my energy into. Be of light, and share your light throughout the earth.

Now realize your unity with omnipotence; get into touch with this power, come into a deep and vital understanding, appreciation, and realization of the fact that your ability to think is your ability to act upon the Universal Mind, and bring it into manifestation, realize that it will meet any and every requirement; that you have exactly the same potential ability which any individual ever did have or ever will have, because each is but an expression or manifestation of the One, all are parts of the whole, there is no difference in kind or quality, the only difference being one of degree.

Week 11-catch-up

As I spent week 14 trying to get everything back on track, I really realized how much I wanted this. No old blueprint or cracked out peptides were going to win this time. I have half completed so many projects over my life, and I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO DO IT OVER!!!

In part 7 Haanel talks about how we are drawn to colour, and how it connects in the simplest form with regards to EVERYTHING that we wish for and want. Our desires, needs, whatever is focused on will be drawn in.

As the eye seeks and receives satisfaction from colors complementary to those which are given, so does need, want and desire, in the largest sense, induce, guide and determine action. 11:7 -Haanel

We need to build a vision of what we want, we need to focus on it, and think relentlessly about it. For we know that we have the ability to achieve our greatest wishes. It has been stated by wise men after wise men. In section 17, Haanel reminds us …

This conception is also elaborated by Swedenborg in his doctrine of correspondences; and a still greater teacher has said, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11:24) The difference of the tenses in this passage is remarkable. 11:17 -Haanel

What things SOEVER YOU DESIRE, WHEN ye PRAY, BELIEVE that ye RECEIVE them, and ye SHALL have them , how many more ways does it need to be said! Pray, Believe, and RECEIVE!!

 

The truth must be told to each generation and to every people in new and different terms, so that when the Great Teacher said — “Believe that ye receive and ye shall receive” or, when Paul said — “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” or, when modern science says — “The law of attraction is the law by which thought correlates with its object”, each statement when subjected to analysis, is found to contain exactly the same truth. The only difference being in the form of presentation. 11:25 -Haanel

Religion and science together agree on this one. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

For your exercise this week, concentrate on the quotation taken from the Bible, “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”; notice that there is no limitation, “Whatsoever things” is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us in our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is not a shadow, but a substance, “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

7:35 Haanel

We have all of the power inside our mind. we just have to decide what we want to focus this incredible power on.

Week 10-Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time of year that I find people have more acceptance to people and their family, more so than Christmas….and maybe it is just that THANKS is in the air. we are such a FAD world; that with thanksgiving comes everyone being ‘thankful.’ Ideally we should be thankful 365 days a year, not just the week before thanksgiving and part into the week after. Being grateful and thankful, is the basis for success. We must project out what we wish to draw in. Be Thankful/Grateful to everyone you come in contact with and see how it shifts your day

I really enjoyed redoing my self assessment. I knew that some of the answers would change, but was surprised to find that I had moved 9 points!! It was almost a silent reassurance that everything really is falling into place, and that things were starting to shift, even if it still doesn’t seem clear everyday.

“Physical laws may explain the inorganic, Biology explains and accounts for the development of the organic, but of the point of contact Science is silent. A similar passage exists between the Natural world and the Spiritual world; this passage is hermetically sealed on the natural side. The door is closed; no man can open it, no organic change, no mental energy, no moral effort, no progress of any kind can enable any human being to enter the spiritual world.” But as the plant reaches down into the mineral world and touches it with the mystery of Life, so the Universal Mind reaches down into the human mind and endows it with new, strange, wonderful and even marvelous qualities. All men or women who have every accomplished anything in the world of industry, commerce or art have accomplished because of this process. Thought is the connecting link between the Infinite and the finite, between the Universal and the individual. We have seen that there is an impassable barrier between the organic and the inorganic, and that the only way that matter can unfold is to be impregnated with life; as a seed reaches down into the mineral world and begins to unfold and reach out, the dead matter begins to live, a thousand invisible fingers begin to weave a suitable environment for the new arrival, and as the law of growth begins to take effect, we see the process continue until the Lily finally appears, and even “Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these”. 10:7-9 -Haanel

Thought, thought, thought….EVERYTHING comes from thought, begins, and ends with thought.

The law is that Thought is an active vital form of dynamic energy which has the power to correlate with its object and bring it out of the invisible substance from which all things are created into the visible or objective world. This is the law by which, and through which all things come into manifestation; it is the Master Key by which you are admitted into the Secret Place of the Most High and are “given dominion over all things.” With an understanding of this law you may “decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee.” 10:11 -Haanel

We need the control of your world within, to mold and structure our thoughts so that the Dynamic Energy is then used in the creation of our beautiful masterpiece; our Kingdom the Lord has left for us to take Reign over.

This creative power depends upon our recognition of the potential power of spirit or mind and must not be confused with Evolution. Creation is the calling into existence of that which does not exist in the objective world. Evolution is simply the unfolding of potentialities involved in things which already exist. 10:13 -Haanel

Without creativity our thought can hold no image, and no dream. No Definite Major Purpose. We must exercise this creative energy, bringing all of the natural laws into alignment and bringing our Future into a PERFECT, CLEAR, and PRECISE picture in our imagination. Study daily these laws and make them a part of your fabric and being. Know that we can never escape or elude these laws, they are always here, and always working. Whether we are using them to work for us, or we are pushing them to work against us, with our negativity that we have built our fortress out of. We must take care as to the materials that we build our world.

We know that the laws governing Electricity have been formulated in such a way that this invisible power can be controlled and used for our benefit and comfort in thousands of ways. We know that messages are carried around the world, that ponderous machinery does its bidding, that it now illuminates practically the whole world, but we know too that if we consciously or ignorantly violate its law by touching a live wire, when it is not properly insulated, the result will be unpleasant and possibly disastrous. A lack of understanding of the laws governing in the invisible world has the same result, and many are suffering the consequences all the time. 10:16 -Haanel

It is not enough to know that the laws exist, we must understand HOW they work, and how they influence everything we do. Let us study consistently, and meditate upon that which we have learned. Let us keep a keen eye, always the observer; analyzing the flow of cause and effect. Lets remember to take gift with us everywhere we go, and give to EVERYONE we come in contact with; for it is not our place to judge.

Peace be the Journey

Week 9-Corpus Callosum

How big is the job? it is about the size of an index card. Is it starting to sink in? Are you starting to connect the dots? I can carve my own new pathway!! I have the ability to create my own future with my own design.

The Mechanism is perfect; it was created by the Master Architect who “doeth all things well,” but unfortunately sometimes the operator is inexperienced or ineffecient, but practice and determination will overcome this defect. 9:15 -Haanel

I love this, just a remind heh! God didn’t screw up, so its time to step up and learn the skills to use your perfect Mechanism, designed by a MASTER!!! Often we are so quick to find fault while missing all of the outstanding wonders dancing around us. Or perfect mechanism has two parts, the left and right, but lets not start labeling whether or not we are creative or analytical. We are ALL left AND right brained!!! If one side of your brain didn’t work at all we would not be able to function everyday. Our Corpus Callosum is seen as the bridge between the two hemispheres in the brain upon which information passes form one half to the other half.

With so many different ways of learning…

Spatially

Musically

Interpersonally

Intrapersonally

Mathematically

Linguistically

Athletically

Use a little bit of everything, each way of learning triggers a different side of the brain, and a different response in the mental ground. Combing and complimenting. Reading the shapes while touching with your left and then right hand. Trying to reinforce the connections over and over to the pathways WE CHOOSE!!!

The three things which all mankind desires and which are necessary for his highest expression and complete development are Health, Wealth, and Love. All will admit that Health is absolutely essential; no one can be happy if the physical body is in pain. All will not so readily admit that Wealth is necessary, but all admit that a sufficient supply at least is necessary, and what would be considered sufficient for one, would be considered absolute and painful lack for another; and as nature provides not only enough but abundantly, wastefully, lavishly, we realize that any lack or limitation is only the limitation which has been made by an artificial method of distribution 9:2 -Haanel

Three simple things that encompass all that we really wish for. The health to do as we wish, and not be plagued with illness,or fatigue, while having the autonomy, and LOVE. Everyone wishes to feel loved or appreciated, even in the simplest of forms or acknowledgement.

To think correctly, accurately, we must know the “Truth.” the truth then is the underlying principle in every business or social relation. It is a condition precedent to every right action. To know the truth, to be sure, to be confident, affords a satisfaction beside which no other is at all comparable; it is the only solid ground in a world of doubt, conflict, and danger. To know the Truth is to be in harmony with the Infinite and Omnipotent power. To know the Truth is, therefore, to connect yourself with a power which is irresistible and which will sweep away every kind of discord, inharmony, doubt or error of any kind, because the “Truth is mighty and will prevail.” 9:6-7 -Haanel

Good always trumps Evil, age old story. but TRUTH!!! Without truth, direction, and light, we are destined to wander around blindly following the masses. We must be careful that only TRUTH get past the gate master to the world within. We need to be in complete balance and meditate on the truth, leading us to the world unknown filled with possibilities.

We can make no mistake about this if we realize that truth is the vital principle of the Universal Mind and is Omnipresent. For instance, if you require health, a realization of the fact that the “I” in you is spiritual and that all spirit is one; that wherever a part is the whole must be, will bring about a condition of health , because every cell in the body must manifest the truth as you see it. If you see sickness; they will manifest sickness; if you see precaution they must manifest perfection. The affirmation, “I am whole, perfect strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy”, will bring about harmonious conditions. The reason for this is because the affirmation is in strict accordance with the Truth, and when truth appears every form of error or discord must necessarily disappear. 9:11 -Haanel

In the simplest form, The Law of Growth: what we think about grows, that which we forget atrophies. it does not matter what it is your focus on, THAT will expand, good or bad. So guard your mind, and keep a positive aim.

If our predominant mental attitude is one of power, courage, kindliness and sympathy, we shall find that our environment will reflect conditions in correspondence with these thoughts; if it is weak, critical, envious and destructive, we shall find our environment reflecting conditions corresponding to these thoughts. 9:30 -Haanel

There is no escaping the fact that EVERYTHING starts in the mind, with how we think.

Week 8-Look forward to this Day!

Look to this Day for it is Life, the very Life of Life. In its brief course lie all the Verities and Realities of your existence; The Bliss of Growth; The Glory of Action; The Splendor of Beauty; For Yesterday is but a Dream, and Tomorrow is but a Vision: But Today well lived makes every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness, and Every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope. Look well, therefore to this DAY!

Yes look forward to each and every day is it is a blessing from the last. As we have no idea how long our time on this planet is, it is even more imperative to watch our world within, and our predominant Mental Attitude…  Do not HANDICAP yourself–let go of the DOUBT! We are our own worst enemy, and must take careful watch over our thoughts and actions.

The Law of Attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions, environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual, characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think about while when you are in church, or have just read a good book, BUT your predominant mental attitude is what counts. 8:18-Haanel

Once again this is brought back to my attention; the story of Emerson and Carlyle. How one loves the good, while the other hates the bad. It is evident that we are to hate nothing, not even the `bad` , because hatred is destructive, and we shall soon find that by entertaining destructive thoughts we are sewing the `wind` and in turn shall reap the `whirlwind`. All thought must be pure and constructive.

We all know that this is by no means easy. Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done and the way to do it is to begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought. Form the habit of analyzing every thought. If it is necessary, if its manifestation in the objective will be a benefit,m not only to yourself, but to all whom it may affect in any way, keep it: treasure it: it is of value; it is in tune with the infinite; it will grow and develop and produce fruit a hundred-fold. On the other hand, it will be well for you to keep this quotation for George Matthews Adams, in mind, `Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind, out of your office, and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with with no definite helpful end in view. 8:4 -Haanel

Back into the Mental diet, it seems to get harder instead of easier. I am still struggling with consistency and moving more then a few minutes, and staying on track. Seems like I am having longer bad stretches then moving into the stretches being clearer.

Imagination is the mighty instrument by which every discoverer, every inventor, opened the way from precedent to experience. Precedent said, “it cannot be done;” Experience said , “It is done.” (8:9-Haanel) Constructive imagination means mental labour, by some to be the hardest kind of labour, but, it yields the greatest returns, for all the great things in life have come to men and women who had the capacity to think, to imagine, and to make their dreams come true. 5:15 -Haanel

Our imagination is so important is helping guide our internal compass as to where we are going, and what we are building. Without a clear picture, we have no direction to work towards, you must work forward with the end in sight, already seeing the successes!

Week 7 – I love the darkness, for it shows me the stars

Stars2

I really enjoyed this weeks webinar and I was enjoying reading the new scroll… Part being I love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I was getting dressed on Monday and I pulled this shirt off of my shelf and the words rang clear through my mind as I looked at the shirt. I have had this shirt for years, but as I looked at it this time; it seemed even clearer in my mind.

Nothing is every going to be just a bed of roses. there are always ups and down, good and bad. Even someone who seems to live with a horseshoe of luck around them; will also have days when we are reminded that through even the darkest of times, there are always stars to look for. non of this is easy and it requires hard work

This is another psychological fact which is well known, but unfortunately, reading about it will not bring about any result which you may have in mind; it will not even help you to form the mental image, much less bring it into manifestation. Work is necessary -labour, hard mental labour, the kind of effort which so few are willing to put forth 7:4 -Haanel

As John Wooden said, “your find most of it is practice, the rest of it is work.” The physical work is easy compared to the mental work, and the internal work required to change our current situation. We must be incredibly precise when focusing on our object of our Definite Major Purpose.

They see the end before a single step is taken; so, you are to picture in your mind what you want; you are sowing the seed, but before sowing any seed you want to know what the harvest is to be, This is idealization. If you are not sure, return to the chair daily until the picture becomes plain; it will gradually unfold; first the general plan will be dim, but it will take shape, the outline will take form, then the details, and you will gradually develop the power by which you will be enabled to formulate plans which will eventually materialize in the objective world. You will come to know what the future holds for you. 7:6 -Haanel

We must focus on what we truly want, and form the clearest picture of all in our mind so that we know without a shadow of a doubt where we are headed. To have our idea created in perfection, without errors, for everything has been fully thought through; every idea, every potential error, and every improvement worked out in the first design.

The inventor visualizes his idea in exactly the same manner, for instance, Nikola Tesla, he with the giant intellect, one of the greatest inventors of all ages, the man who has brought forth the most amazing realities, always visualizes his inventions before attempting to work them out. He did not rush to embody them in form and then spend his time correcting defects. Having first built up the idea in his imagination, he held it there as a mental picture, to be reconstructed and improved by his thought. “In this Way,” he writes in the Electrical Experimenter. “I am enabled to rapidly develop and perfect a conception without touching anything. When I have gone so far as to embody in the invention every possible improvement I can think of, and see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete, the product of my brain. Invariably my devise works as I conceived it should; in twenty years there has not been a single exception. 7:10 -Haanel

In 20 years, not a single exception. Perfect 100 percent of the time; because of the focus on the end in mind. There is no way to create perfection without complete control of our mind and soul. No perfect peace of mind, or calm life without first gaining complete control over the mind. When he have grasped how important this control is to our future, then nothing can hold us back. There is no one who can tell us we are not worthy, there is nothing that can stand in our way. When we can see the beginning to the end, and every step along the way, with no corners cut; and this being in harmony with all who are involved; you can obtain nothing short of your Definite Major Purpose

If you conscientiously follow these directions, you will develop Faith, the kind of Faith that is the “Substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”; you will develop confidence, the kind of confidence that leads to endurance and courage; you will develop the power of concentration which will enable you to exclude all thoughts except the ones which as associated with your purpose. 7:11 -Haanel

Is it not wonderful that man has such tremendous power within himself, such transcendental faculties concerning which he had no conception. Is it not strange that we have always been taught to look for strength and power “without?” We have been taught to look everywhere but “within” and whenever this power manifested in out lives we were told that it was something supernatural. 7:19 -Haanel

The power of our choice of words or suggestion of word play is beyond powerful.

For instance, a man is in debt. He will be continually thinking about the debt, concentrating on it, and as thoughts are causes the result is that he not only fastens the debt closer to him, but actually creates more debt. He is putting the great law of Attraction into operation with the usual and inevitable result — Loss leads to greater “Loss.” 7:23 -Haanel

Remember that thought is the fire that creates the steam that turns the wheel of fortune, up on which your experience depend. 7:29 -Haanel

We have been working on this since week one. THE POWER OF THOUGHT! There is no way around how important it is to watch our words and take a good mental diet daily; to be constantly clearing our thoughts, and refocusing on the tremendous power within.

Peace be the Journey

Week 6 – Wake up with a purpose

wake up with a purpose 3

In Canada we are past Thanksgiving, and so my mom and I were our Christmas shopping together this week, and I came across this canvas. It jumped right off the shelf at me.

Always fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.

For me the Master Keys has been all about setting a goal or a dream, and working towards that. I have never had a definite major purpose other than paying off debt, and we all know where 15 years of that has gotten me :) This has been about really digging deep and finding out what is important to me. WHAT MUST I DO? WHAT DRIVES MY SOUL AND SPIRIT? I was raised Christian, and have for a while been wandering with my spiritual entity. I only just realized the power of energy in our universe and I have been trying to connect the dots as to what is real, what is fabricated, and what I truly feel. Funny thing is that no one can TELL us these answers, we can be guided towards spiritual understanding; but that is a journey for each of us to take up ourselves.

This then is the “Temple of the living God” and the individual “I” is given control and upon his understanding of the mechanism which is within his control will the result depend. 6:14 Haanel

They are finding that circumstances and environment follow the trend of mental and spiritual progress; they find that growth follow knowledge; action follows inspiration; opportunity follows perception; always the spiritual first, then the transformation into the infinite and illimitable possibilities of achievement 6:31 -Haanel

ALWAYS BACK TO THE SPIRITUAL!!! I set my PPNs when I was doing go90grow, and I spent a lot of time on them. I may not have had much direction; but I DID KNOW that I wanted the freedom to do what I wanted when and how I wanted; and to have the freedom to never worry about the financial part of it. This is about the only thing I HAVE been clear on haha…but the last few weeks I am starting to question if these really are where my focus is…or is Spiritual becoming more of a central focus. It all starts inside, our dreams, or goals, our reactions, or love, our lack of envy or jealousy, the control over our mind. Some thinking to do over the next little bit.

On to week two of no opinions. It has been a little easier this week then last as I noticed that I bit my tongue more and actually held back from opening my mouth a bunch of times. There was less of mentally saying ahhhhh no opinions; and then talking right through it, and more of stopping myself and actually not saying anything. may not be the percentage I wanted….but even stopping yourself 10% of the time is an improvement and moving forward with starting to reprogram my future me.

The man who looks within instead of without cannot fail to make use of the mighty forces which will eventually determine his course in life and so bring him into vibration with all that is best, strongest and most desirable. 6:18 -Haanel

The pieces are starting to fall into place and the dots are starting to be connected in the universe where there is an undeniable bridge forming. Everything starts within, the good, the bad, the hot mess, all of it! but the more that I am focusing on the meditation, the readings, and MOST IMPORTANTLY the no opinions and the choices of words spoken. Am I paying off Debt? or am I saving money? Both ultimately are the same sentence and both seem to say that they are moving forward; but our choice in word play wreaks havoc on your consciousness.

The power of attention can be more readily understood by comparing it with a magnifying glass in which the rays of sunlight are focused; they possess no particular strength as long as the glass is moved about and the rays directed from one place to another; but let the glass be held perfectly still and let the rays be focused on one spot for any length of time, the effect will become immediately apparent. 6:20 -Haanel

We live in a world of constant stimulation and distraction. We cannot even drive down the street without being advertised to via the electronic bill boards, or the radio, or in the middle of streaming music. We exist in a time that focus and attention to detail is pretty hard to come by. How many times have you tried talking to someone while they are ‘multitasking’ and are on their cell phone? How much do they actually hear or catch? We need to stop allowing our attention to be pulled in 6 million different directions. Back to basics again; WHAT DO YOU WANT? and how are you going to get there? Are any of these distractions helping you? How about do ourselves a favour and let go of all the little time wasters, and attention stealers. Hockey is one of my captivating moments. I actually pay for cable JUST so that I can watch my teams games. I do not turn on the TV for ANYTHING else, except to watch the Calgary Flames. This year I forgot that I always have to add on a small addition to the package so I can get a decent portion of the games that air on this one single channel. I was of course so frustrated when I had forgotten that I did not have this channel and that I had cancelled it in the spring. about 99 percent of me wanted to call SHAW right then and have it put back on so I could watch the game that night! I resisted; but then fought my inner demons all week as 3 of the games were on this channel!!! I decided that maybe this was one of the things that I needed to let go of this year. Not watching every game has zero effect on my love for my team; but it does free up a lot of my time that could be better put towards reading, dreaming, meditation, or building my future. Are there still days that I am sad I cannot watch the game? Of course there is, but I know that it is the pains of the old blueprint breaking and being ripped to shreds, as the new blueprint is busting through.

I have been talking for about 9 months that I was going to build my dream board…well time to DO IT NOW!!! No more monkey business, if you say it, it is gold, it must be done. there is no other option. It feels good to see my dreams in front of me physically there staring back at me. I was explaining to my boyfriend that I needed to pick up a compass on the way home from work to keep with me. Everyday when I leave lunch and head back to work I check the mail. This day was no different then the rest…I THOUGH!!!! AS I opened the mailbox there was a BEAUTIFUL yellow(ish) square staring back of me. This little square envelope was a letter from my guide Linda, and inside was a magnifying glass and a COMPASS!!! There are no coincidences; everything right when it is supposed to. Thanks Linda for being so awesome and caring <3  This is my new reality!

Week 5-No…..Opinio..n……

…Shall we have a vision of the destination to be reached, the dangers to avoid, or shall we simply drift? 5:2 Haanel

There is no more detriment to the human soul then being complacent. To have no aim, no goal, no ambition, and to simply drift through life like a plastic bag in the soft autumn breeze. Being tossed left and right as the wind sees fit. How many times were we asked as a child; what do you want to do? where do you see yourself in 5 years? I have been asked these questions probably more times then any other relevant or success oriented question…Yet it never seemed to be of any importance. Why is it that we put so much pressure on learning history, and graphical mathematics, but put so little importance on the impression of our future self. When a student or young person struggles with this question, maybe this should be a focal point of the learning. For once again, with no ambition or end goal in sight, this leaves us to simply drift by the wayside. I wish that this had seemed important to me before I was 35! That I could have seen the importance of having a plan and a goal by which to drive this car forward.

I have never seen Heredity as being something we were stuck with. I don’t believe anything is our misfortune. I have the faith and belief that we can create our future, our bodies health and everyone of our circumstances. “We can consciously use all the desirable characteristics with which we have been provided and we can repress and refuse to allow the undesirable ones to manifest.” 5:5 Haanel We all have characteristics that are not our shining attributes. So instead of hating on our self for things that are IN our control, lets repress those negative or detrimental characteristics, and lets encourage or welcome our positive characteristics. For as the Law of Growth states; That which we think about grows, and that which we forget atrophies! Lets let go of the unhealthy characteristics and have a mental housecleaning

What is the character of this material (our mental world)? We have seen that it is the result of the impressions which we have accumulated in the past and stored away in our subconscious mentality. If these impressions have been of fear, of worry, of care, of anxiety; if they have been despondent, negative, doubtful, then the texture of the material which we are weaving today will be of the same negative material. Instead of being of any value, it will be mildewed and rotten and will bring us only more toil and care and anxiety. We shall be forever busy trying to patch it up and make it appear at least genteel. 5:10 Haanel

How many of us justify our actions? I mean I’m not mean or rude, it is just done wrong and they need to be corrected. Or; I can do it no problem and they are doing half what I was doing! it is so simple, why can’t they get it? I may not be intentionally trying to be negative, but the underlying attitude is still there; I still have a negative and demeaning attitude towards that individual. There is no love, or gratitude towards anyone where we have hesitation or animosity.

This power is from within, but we cannot receive it unless we give it. Use is the condition upon which we hold this inheritance. We are each of us but the channel through which the Omnipotent power is being differentiated into form; unless we give, the channel is obstructed and we can receive no more, This is true on every plane of existence and in every field of endeavor and all walks of life. The more we give, the more we get. The athlete who wishes to get strong must first make use of the strength he has, and the more he gives the more he will get. The financier who wishes to make money must make use of the money he has, for only by using it can he get more. 5:25 Haanel

How powerful this was to me. This matched with no opinions. I was surprised at how aware I was of the opinions I was giving. I almost instantly realized that I was giving an opinion, but then continued to give it. I wasn’t noticing this before the point of biting my tongue. If we wish to have more love, abundance, and gratefulness in our life, then we must PROJECT it from us in all directions, for what we think about is building our home for tomorrow. I want to take heirship of this abundant mansion before us; but I want it to be open to all to visit and take up shelter when needed. This can only be accomplished by giving light and love on even the toughest of days. Be the change that you want to see in the world, but remember to be this love and light with no expectation of reciprocity.

Peace be the Journey

Week 4- Everyone is going to quit

Everyone is going to quit!

You are either going to quit (the course, your job, relationship) whatever situation …. or you are going to stop not giving 100%.

Davene’s words rang loud and clear Sunday. It isn’t about doing most of it, or being pretty good at it. Trying your best isn’t good enough. you MUST DO IT NOW!! 100% all in. I have really noticed a lot of things that I have gotten done over the last month that normally would have been pushed to the side, and the next thing I know last night I have been home 20 minutes at the end of a very taxing week; and I am in the middle of cooking a chicken, so I could then turn around and make a huge bone broth, and then soup. Kind of a half to full day task really…sounds like a Saturday or maybe Sunday task…nope Friday evening; and boy was that soup great first thing this morning.

We were told to take a gift with us and leave it with everyone we come in contact with. Whether that be a compliment, a gift, service….whatever. After the call ended last Sunday I had about half an hour to get to the market before it closed, and since it is only open on the weekend. I had to scoot! now I KNOW everything happens for a reason….blah blah blah; ya I got it, right? I drove into the parking stall and even remember thinking, I should back it, I always back in, its easier to leave a busy place…no one is here, I’m already in the stall. Just park and I’ll run in. am I the only one that has arguments or full on conversations with myself over doing things? Moving right along; I rushed around inside as quickly as I could as everyone was wrapping up and I cam back out to my car and found this

I love hula hooping

and as I turned it over..

happy day

I almost burst into tears. The universe has shown me a lot in the last week. This lovely lady had no idea what an overwhelming experience she had given me. Happy day indeed. We build our community! We GIVE to make it a better place! (I did manage to track her down through the ever present social media :) <3 give a little get a lot <3)

Peace be the journey my friends

Week 3 -No Negativity

I have been reading the blueprint builder off and on, rather inconsistently; for the last year. Under the fifth promise it says I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects….I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing a love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success.

Wow, tough words. I mean I know that you need to be honest and respectful of everyone, and it is not our place to play the judge, but it seems so easy to see the flaws in others. It is like; I love this person, but I just don’t get why they do this, or don’t pay attention to that. Who am I to critique and judge them? I am not the master judge, and as he says you with no sins be the first to throw the stone. I certainly could not take that stand. We all fall short of the glory of the Lord.

I have really been struggling with an extreme bout of negativity these last 3 days. I feel completely out of control and the only thing projecting out of me is uncaring words, judgemental, and blind sided comments. I feel in a cloud of smothering anger that just wants to fireball out of me in all directions to everyone I come in contact with. Today was exceptionally bad; as every single outside force collided with a MASSIVE ‘feeling charged reaction’. It was so bad I could feel the heat inside me just brewing and bubbling. Just as I would calm down a little, another outside force came through and I reacted again.

Non-resistant thought expands the Solar Plexus; resistant thought contract it. Pleasant thought expands it; unpleasant thought contracts it. Thoughts of courage, power, confidence and hope all produce a corresponding state, but the one arch enemy of the Solar Plexus which must be absolutely destroyed before there is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun; which causes a perpetual gloom. 3:14 -Haanel

As I read these words this evening I burst into tears. I know that I am the controller and ruler of my conscious mind, therefor controlling my subconscious, and my life; in and out. But this was truly so powerful to me today. How fear has crippled, and controlled us our whole life. The many decisions that it has made for us, the multitude of missed opportunities. The words said in heightened emotion that could not be taken back. The Lord never wanted us to live in fear, hatred or jealousy, for we are God’s most precious creation. He gave us our own power to create beauty with, not destruction. I am going forward with a driving desire to curb my tongue, and to not say or think anything negative. For no success can come from a negative attitude towards another. I need to support and lift up each person I come in contact with, and look for their amazing talents, not a tiny splinter in their eye.

Week 2-The Flood Waters

Two years ago I had the privilege of sitting through a rather small group training by Eric Worre. He was trying to explain to us that life was a river. Many thing float down the river bouncing along and riding through life; while others are a little more solid and tend to be in one place for a little longer until heavier waters come and tumble them a little further  downstream, or roll them slowly side after side. There are still others that choose to make a stand. The choose not to pushed around by the changing fashions and fads, or rolled around by the people around them, or the situations at their work. There are some people that decide to be strong, stand up for their beliefs and passions, and make a difference. These people are the boulders in the river of life, and as the storms come down, and the waters rush on by, the boulder remains still and forces the water to go around it. Make no mistake that life will be easy when you choose to change your path, and start looking for different results. When you choose to take a stand and really run with an idea, or a project, or belief…THAT is when the flood waters will come! They will come surging towards you, trying to drive you down the river, But that is when you need to put both feet on the ground and say DO IT NOW!!

I was introduced to MKMMA through a friend about a year ago who was taking the course. I was doing GO90GROW, and I was incredibly overwhelmed and I thought I was drowning in it all and didn’t have enough time. Fast forward a year and I get an invitation email to apply for an MKMMA scholarship. I quickly continued through my email as I was too busy to be bothered. I got a text message from my friend asking me if I had sent in an application. I told her I had not and that I didn’t have the time for it. She vaguely acknowledged me and I knew she was disappointed and I felt like I had let her down as a friend and a leader. Almost right away I started this internal battle.

“I don’t have the time for this” “I can’t do personal development when I sign up because of someone else” “I didn’t even finish GO90GROW” …. and I knew in an instant that this was not by chance that this was offered to us, and I knew that this is where I needed to be here right now! I DEFINITELY didn’t have time to do it over, so I better start doing it right. Of course by this point it was Wednesday and the applications were due Friday, and I KNEW that there were only a limited number of spots. Praise the Lord, I woke up Saturday and I saw my name on the list. I was TERRIFIED, what in the world did I sign myself up for!!!! By the time I watched the replay of week one, I was starting to get excited. All this work, and daily tasks, but I just felt like this was right where I needed to be, and I knew this is what I needed to be putting my energy into.

I have spent some time studying the secret, and I mean; really its beautiful. If you can Hold it in your Mind you can Hold it in your Hand! And it is TRUTH! …but it is also only a partial truth. You can absolutely have your hearts desires, with limitation only to yourself; BUT it is not just free or for nothing. There is always balance and where there is a ‘push’ there is a ‘pull’. I have been trying to meditate for a while now, before MKMMA, and I am regaining my control of the body. The mind on the other hand that has been the hard part. I have been focusing on the positive, and things being okay, and really trying to avoid the negative thoughts, financials, and overwhelming feelings. I felt like I was doing a tiny bit better at really trying to see the big picture, and understanding that it is all habit, and creating the culture for our every powerful subby. I was focusing on the DMP, balance, and peace.

I have had a car that has really been riding on a prayer for a while. And this has been one of the areas in my life that i had really been focusing my energies and I have been trying to keep my cool, and know that it will work out. I am a blue and can be quite dysfunctional at times, but I have been trying. My mantra has been it will last until we have the means to replace it. It will last until we have the means to replace it, …I actually found peace in it and I truly believed it. I am driving home for lunch and it die! Beyond repair dies. At face value I took it really well. I was extremely grateful that it died in a safe place, no harm, no accident or injury. As the few weeks have come past it has become more and more of an underlying thorn. Whats wrong? I tried so hard, I truly believed!!! I realized this week that that I was using the Secret version of thinking and not the Master Keys. Was I in harmony with everything around me? Was I full of accumulative consciousness or scattered consciousness? Did I want my world within to brought forth to this world without?

MKMMA is no bird course. It takes more perseverance than time, and more self management than control.  I had tried to read the scrolls 3x a day before, and I would get about a day maybe 2…and that wasn’t even completing 3x a day. We set ourselves up for failure when we say one thing and do another. As Mark said this week…anyone CAN do the daily tasks, and anyone can choose NOT to do them.

It is often true that conditions of fear, worry, poverty, disease, inharmony and evils of all kinds dominate us by reason of false suggestions accepted by the unguarded subconscious mind. All this the trained conscious mind can entirely prevent by its vigilant protective action. It may properly be called “the watchman at the gate” of the great subconscious domain.  2:14 -Haanel

This all came together this week with what false and destructive suggestions my subconscious has been feeding on for so long. The amount of conditioning  where fear, stress, and poverty lie; it was no wonder with the unguarded subby as it has been that there isn’t all anarchy. It is time to secure the gate and take subby back! For if I am to create the world without that I truly believe is my future, its time to take back control, and to recondition with GOOD HABITS, so the world within can be crystal clear on the main thing.

I am enjoying my reading and my daily tasks and I welcome the beautiful future.

Week 1-Just the Beginning

To truly make changes in our current situation, we need to be willing to make some changes. Sometimes mental, physical or spiritual changes. The definition of crazy, is doing the same actions and expecting different results. If my life is not what I was hoping for and not moving me forward in where I wish to be, then I need to reevaluate and try to figure out what is missing. Where in my life do I need to make the adjustments to create everything I do want, and to be able to give and help those I come in contact with. This is my my starting point; to let go of what is not working, and to know that change is hard and that this isn’t going to be easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is. It takes hard work to remove the mud and cement to reveal the treasures inside. Treasure untold, and limited only by the limits we set on ourselves.
