The Universal Mind

The last six weeks or so have been … a rollercoaster is a poor analogy, but the best I can do. I suppose a lot of people think I’ve been flung off right now.

Here are just a few of the things which have happened (some of which are ongoing):rollercoaster

  • I published my second book
  • Things are going great with the book – the first book in the series got into a box set which looks like it might actually get to the NYT best seller list! One of the things on my DMP which looks like it’s coming three years before I asked for it to happen. 🙂
  • My husband’s untreated medical problem got worse and worse and he ended up in the hospital
  • He refused to go into rehab even though all the doctors told him that’s what he needed to do
  • I don’t even want to talk about my marriage right now
  • But my kids are doing much better, especially my older son, who’s had serious medical problems of his own for the past few years
  • I’m in the process of writing book 3 and it’s going extremely well
  • I decided after two weeks of considering the matter to resign as a guide (probably why people are all of a sudden reading this)

Why I decided to resign as a guide is way more complex than people have made it out to be, but it’s something which began back when I was approached to become a guide again (I was a guide last year).

Being a guide last year wasn’t a pleasant experience for me, for a lot of reasons, and I was hesitant to do it again. I’m learning that hesitation is a signal for me. I got a lot of signals not to do it, but I did it anyway for bad reasons and it was a mistake. Not because of my tribe (who have been awesome) or my intern (who has grown immensely this year). That part of being a guide has been almost entirely positive.

I’m not going to detail my reasons online, because I feel that would be wrong to do so, but it’s been a long time coming, and the events just before and after I announced I was resigning have only confirmed I’m making the right decision. Yet I realize it’s caused some unhappiness and even anger, and I want to publicly apologize for my part in that. I hope you can find peace.


Who or what is the Universal Mind? That has become a matter of contention which I feel is important enough to discuss here. What is our subby? If, as Haanel says, the subby is a channel, the connecting link through which the Universal Mind works (Part 1, paragraph 22; part 14, paragraph 22), a part of the Universal Mind itself (Part 3, paragraph 25), and the Universal Mind is the one who provides the “ways and means” (Part 10, paragraph 15), should we not listen to the urgings of our hearts?

What is the value of our own intuition otherwise? If this isn’t subby speaking (as some claim), then who is it? Haanel says that the Universal Mind has infinite power and infinite wisdom (Part 13, paragraph 26) – it seems arrogant to refuse to listen when it speaks. Or are Og’s words “I will only pray for guidance” irrelevant? Why pray for guidance at all if the Universal Mind is just a giant computer to which we give commands?

Consider part 18, paragraphs 7-9:

7. And this mind is the indwelling and ultimate. It is imminent in matter as in spirit.
It is the sustaining, energizing, all-pervading Spirit of the universe.

8. Every living thing must be sustained by this omnipotent Intelligence and we find
the difference in individual lives to be largely measured by the degree of this intel-
ligence, which they manifest. It is greater intelligence that places the animal in a
higher scale of being than the plant, the man higher than the animal, and we find
that this increased intelligence is again indicated by the power of the individual
to control modes of action and thus to consciously adjust himself to his environ-
ment.

9. It is this adjustment that occupies the attention of the greatest minds, and this
adjustment consists in nothing else than the recognition of an existing order in the
universal mind, for it is well known that this mind will obey us precisely in propor-
tion as we first obey it. (emphasis mine)

So anyway, you’re certainly welcome to form your own opinions on the matter. Each of us has our own role to play in whatever the Universal Mind desires to manifest in us, and I believe that it’s only in becoming attuned to that desire that we’ll discover who and what each of us really is. What truly is the thing we each are here to do.

I’m still trying to figure it out for myself.

Week 4 – letting go

Letting go can (I suppose) be good or bad, depending on your point of view. Maybe I just need to not have an opinion on it altogether.


This has been one of those weeks where you want to chuck it all and do something else.

You ever have weeks like that?

In some ways, that dissatisfaction with the way things are is good – it’s a sign that you’re ready to make a serious shift in your life. But until the shift happens, it’s sort of uncomfortable.

Even now, I’ve been going over my old blog posts, trying to figure out how to make sense of some of the things which are going on in my life right now. Trying to figure out what to write today. And all I can think of is letting go.letting go

But what do I let go of? That’s the question which has dogged me. How do you know what to let go of and what to keep? When to do what you’ve said you’ll do and when to let it go as a bad decision and take the consequences?

I had one such decision to make this week.

Months ago I felt weird about doing something, but it seemed like a good financial decision, so I laid the plans for it even though I didn’t feel enthusiastic about it.

But some extremely serious things have happened – unrelated to myself – which made me have to take a moral stand around the matter, and it’s been keeping me up at night for the past few weeks.

I felt torn between financial needs and moral obligations, desire to help and rage at even being anywhere near the place I said I would be, and a voice waking me up every morning telling me not to do this thing I said I would do.

I had no idea why these strong feelings came to me around this issue. Objectively, it wasn’t all that big of a deal. But it bothered me immensely. Was I using this as an excuse, failing to break through my comfort zone? Or was I in danger of ignoring the strong direction of my intuition?

So I did a bit of a sit. How did it feel to not do this? How did it feel to do this?

And I followed my heart. Which was telling me not to do this.

All of a sudden, when I became serious about letting go, I knew exactly why I needed not to do this (personal/family reason) and it all made sense.

It was so strange – if I listened to my inner guidance months ago, had realized letting go was the right thing to do weeks ago, I would have saved a ton of money, time, and angst. Why didn’t I listen?

I feel as though I have held on to some weird part of my old blueprint which still is trying to run things.

It’s difficult to explain, especially to those of you who’ve never taken this course. But I’m seeing implications running through everything. Areas where I’ve ignored clear signs and direction as to what to do because I had invested in something which could not serve me or my family and was unwilling to admit I’d been wrong.

What does this have to do with the Master Key Experience? Well, everything. I would never have been able to sort through this and come to the point of letting go without the help of this course. I certainly wouldn’t have been able to see what the problem was or how to solve it. So I feel very grateful. I feel as if this is a new direction for me.

I ran across something earlier today which had me in tears:

At times you may find yourself between worlds, unsure about anything, with no idea what is being asked of you. It is clear some sort of death has occurred and that things will never be the same again.

But where is the rebirth? The new life purpose? The promised healing, intimacy, clarity, and joy?

Nothing has yet emerged from the womb of Now. No direction for the journey ahead. Or so it seems.

While the uncertainty can be disorienting, in another sense you are home. In this realm, terror and exhilaration co-arise and weave in and out of one another. They appear as they are – energies of aliveness, filled with information for the journey ahead. But the data they carry is holy, and not always navigable by the density of the mind.

The alternating waves of hope and hopelessness, appearing and dissolving in a vast field of holding. In this environment, even fear is seen as an emissary, a special tour guide into the hidden places of the sacred world.

Yes, the longing can be excruciating at times… for healing, for transcendence, for understanding, for some magical “other” to come and remind you of how majestic you truly are. There is a cosmic ache for clarity, for ground, and for some resolution to all the contradictions. A yearning for just a moment of rest and respite from the raging, full-spectrum relentlessness of the unknown.

Perhaps the greatest act of kindness and surrender now is to turn toward the death and the reorganization. To stay embodied to the “falling apart,” and discover if you were ever “together” to begin with. For what you are is beyond all this.

You are the warm erupting luminous space in which “together” and “apart” are lovers, dancing together into eternity, spinning with one another so that the unprecedented majesty of what you are can finally break through and find safe passage here into a world that has gone a bit mad.

Right in between the death and the rebirth is the secret place. Stay there and listen. And feel the waves of sweet and fierce love, as they descend and wash through. – Matt Licata

Be well. 🙂

 

Week 3 – Fear and power

This week’s lesson (I feel) is about power, and fear. The part about power is easy and interesting: where power comes from, how to get it, what to do with it — these are all fascinating topics. What people don’t really like to talk about is fear.

But fear is really the part which keeps us from getting the power we need to do what it is we want. Haanel makes that quite clear:

When fear is effectually and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and life.

fear

None of us are immune to fear. We can push it aside, keep it at bay, but if we aren’t careful, it can creep right back in again. It’s all part of being human.

The biggest problem with fear is that it can cause us to make bad decisions. To not do things which are in our own best interests.To push away those trying to bring us wisdom. To not take opportunities which could help us!

So our major task is to focus on getting rid of fear, right?

Nope. If you focus on what you don’t want, subby brings you more of the thing you focus on. That is the Law of Attraction, in its negative form.

So what do we want?

We want the power, the ability, to get past the fear, to not let it stop what we want for our lives.

And if you read part 3, Haanel gives quite explicit instructions on how to activate the source of our power: what we in the MKE call the Sit. Purposeful silence. With this plus the mental diet, plus the other little exercises we do, many members are even now beginning to learn how to activate this power within them.

Sounds too good to be true? Yeah. I know. It does. But that’s your fear talking. 🙂

 

 

 

Week 2 – Protecting subby

Who or what is subby? Why does subby need protecting?

Well, “subby” is what we in the Master Key Experience call our subconscious mind.

Picture a 5 year old autistic savant. This kid can calculate anything in an instant, but is innocent and knows nothing about life. This kid takes you literally (as five year olds do) and desperately wants to please you. All you have to do is to suggest something would help, and this kid rushes off to go do it.


Those of you who watched the free video series learned about the relationship between subby and our conscious mind, and how subby is the one who directs our actions. Like an ant on the back of an elephant, the only thing we have a chance of doing is to direct subby – there’s no way to control it (this is what “subconscious” means – we have no conscious control).

But we can give suggestions. And remember, all subby wants is to please us.

Should be easy, right?

That’s where we get in our own way.

The one thing I’ve learned in my time in the Master Key Experience is how undisciplined my conscious mind is, even now in my third year doing this. I got some notion passing through my head that maybe I didn’t need to do all this … and now my copy of Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman is gone, and everything with it. My DMP, my cards, my Blueprint Builder, the works. I keep it all together in a ziplock bag which has gone everywhere with me … which seems to have vanished.

Well.

I have another copy, and I’ve repeated all the things so much I have most of them memorized, so it’s okay. I’m fine. But it’s a clue-by-four to the head as to what can happen when you get careless and fail to protect your subby from suggestions about things you don’t actually want!

And it’s even worse for those of you whose minds are even more undisciplined. Fortunately, my manifestation was minor. Nothing serious happened. But it could have been much worse.

So how do you protect subby?

Mental diet.

You have to be the “watchman at the gate” keeping any unwanted influences away from this little subby of yours. It’s a never-ending job, watching what you see, what you hear, how you interpret those things.

It can be done, but it takes vigilance. It takes a determination to only consider things, to only say things, which you want manifested in your life.

But it’s worth it. On my DMP I have the idea that I become a NYT bestselling author in 2021. I have reason to believe it’s going to happen much sooner. More on that later.

This is what the members of the Master Key Experience are just barely beginning to learn about this week: their power, and their responsibility to this innocent little savant inside of them. It’s fairly daunting, yet inspiring as well.

I almost forgot to post my 2016 tribe! I’ll go do that now.

Have a great week!

Week 1 – You have the power

Here we go again! The first thing which jumped out at me this week was Haanel’s assertion that power comes from within. Isn’t that so unlike what the rest of the world tells us? We need this guru or that system or some product – that has the power, not us.power

But no, Haanel says: the power to do or be anything comes from inside ourselves.

Isn’t that encouraging, though? Once we figure out how to access that power, nothing can stop us from being or having or doing anything we want. ANYTHING!

It makes perfect sense: celebrities or rich people or the powerful aren’t intrinsically any better than anyone else. They’re not gods or somehow specially qualified. They’ve just found a way to access the power within them, as far as getting what they want goes. There’s no reason why we can’t do this too.

But how?

Guess what? Those of you who are doing the work will find out. It’s not particularly difficult. But it does take a bit of effort.

The first set of DMPs are coming in, and it’s always a hectic and exciting time, seeing people – some of them for the very first time – asking themselves the simple question, “what do I want?”

We root for them, we encourage them, but for some, it’s too much, too difficult, too scary, to actually think about what they want. Not what their spouse or their children or their parents want. Not what their pastor or their boss or their neighbors want. But what THEY want for themselves.

Some are already doing everything they can NOT to answer that simple question. Which is okay. Not everyone is ready.

For those who pass this simple test of writing down what they want using some simple parameters, a whole world opens up to them. It’s awe-inspiring, to say the least. They are finding the power that lies within them. 🙂

 

Looking forward to the new start

In a few days, thousands of people will begin another cycle of considering the question: what do I want from my life? It’s an amazing time, seeing people begin the adventure of a lifetime.

Sadly, many more thousands who had the chance to join them chose to sit and watch from the sidelines.

This will be my third year taking the course (the guides do the same things – and more – that the members do), and I look back over what I’ve accomplished since I began this time in 2014: two books published, a trip to Hawaii, the changes in my relationships and family, and I have to say that I’m looking forward to what this year will bring as far as deepening my understanding of my own power in manifesting what I want for myself and my world. It’s been challenging. But worth it.

For those of you moving forward with us, congratulations! In a few weeks, I’ll get to see who I’m going to be personally helping. I’ve had a great time mentoring my intern guide as he learns to guide others through the process.

Right now, I’m getting ready to go sell books in Dallas. Have a great weekend!

Stop trying to change your life and change it!

I want to ask you a question, and I want you to answer honestly: Do you really want to change your life? If so, why haven’t you signed up to the Master Key Experience? Do you think that maybe you’ll be able to steal some bit of information from my blog that will suddenly make everything click? That the hundreds of hours you’ve spent trying to change your life and failing will suddenly all go away if you learn one new piece of information?

JUST STOP. Stop trying to change your life and change it!

But how?

You see, here’s the thing. Your subconscious mind has been programmed from birth for you to do what you do now, all the things you do now which are causing you to fail. You have NO control over your subconscious mind! So “trying” to change your life is just looking at the effect, not the cause – and it WILL FAIL.

Mark J talks about that and explains it really well in the first of the Master Key video series (WHICH IS FREE).

Click here to see it. (it will open a new window)

Okay, so if you watched that first video, then you should understand perfectly WHY you’ve been failing so much.

There is not magic information which is going to change your life. YOU need to get the guidance to learn how to DIRECT your subconscious mind (NOT control it! Because you can’t, by definition) and convince it that you’re serious about things getting better.

And the ONLY way you can do that is to actually get serious about things getting better!

This is where the Master Key Experience comes in. We have done it, and we can show you how.

No one controls you. We teach you how to control yourself.

No one pressures you. We teach you how to get out from under the world’s pressure to be like everyone else.

You find out how to be YOU, not a copy of a copy of a copy (which in most cases, has been mis-copied). Do you have the courage to learn to be yourself?

If this sounds at all good to you then go here right now. Clear your schedule and grab this opportunity, before it passes you by!

Ever wondered why the “self-help” stuff hasn’t worked for you?

People are hungry for answers. They spend billions of dollars on “self-help” books and courses. Yet their lives don’t change.
There are a lot of reasons why, and in a minute I’m going to give you the link to a video which gives you the biggest reason. But at the root of it all is a much deeper problem.
Wherever I go, people ask me questions like “how did you create your novel series?” and “where did you get the ideas for your books?” Or “how did you have the courage (or the money) to travel to Hawaii for three weeks by yourself?”
They’re good questions. But you have to take a step back. The real question they’re asking is, “How did you get the confidence to trust that you already CAN do it? That you already HAVE the ideas?”
All the books and courses in the world won’t help the main problem: you don’t believe in you. Until you can break through the programming the world has put on you which keeps you stuck in the idea that you can’t do it, you’ll stay stuck. It’s really difficult, almost impossible to break free of this on your own. I’m sure you understand that – you’ve been trying for a long time now.
But you CAN do it, with a little guidance and a lot of work on your part. Once you do that, though, ANYTHING is possible!
 
These are the videos I watched in 2014 that started me on my path. They are totally free. You’re not going to end up being pitched for some $3000 course.
 
(in fact, there is a course, but you CAN NOT buy it, and I would not endorse it if you could – your spot in the course has been paid for already by the previous class)
 
Once you get to the biggest reason why “self-help” doesn’t work, you will be blown away. You’ll finally understand what the problem has been, and be on track to fixing it. So I invite you to take a look and see what you think. You might like it! 🙂

Being self-directed

What does being self-directed mean? Because that is the ultimate goal of the Master Key Experience. Not to indoctrinate you into some new and different ideology, not to get you to think like we think … but to be able to think for yourself.

But I do think for myself! You might say.

Okay. Just for today, don’t say anything which someone else has already said in your presence. If you’ve ever heard someone else say it, it’s off limits. Keep your mouth shut until you have something original to say.

Sounds easy, right? But that gets rid of all the banalities, the small talk, the repeating of others’ opinions. You can’t just go the easy route. It forces you to think for yourself. For most people, if you take away the imprint the world has left on them, there’s nothing left.

Still don’t believe me? Give it a try, just for today.self-directed

So what does this self-directed stuff look like?

You do the work you want to do, work that makes you feel how you’d like to feel. If you’re not in that work right now, you develop your own plan as to how to get there.

When you need guidance, you go inward first. The only teacher is you. What do you want?

You know what you want in life, and you are at least developing a plan to get there. You don’t blame others for not having what you want in life, because you know it’s up to you to get it.

People don’t have to keep nagging you or telling you what to do. You’re motivated inwardly. You feel great about what you’re doing, because it makes you feel more alive. You get up with new ideas. You have a clear picture of your goal in mind, as if you were right there, with it already accomplished.

Does this sound good?

Well, it’s very achievable. Thousands of people are living there right now. Some took decades to figure out how to do this, but I took a course called the Master Key Experience and got all the help and tools I needed to do this in a year. Since then, I’ve just been refining, deepening my understanding. But you can see definite results in just a few months, if you’re willing to do the work.

And the class can’t be bought. It’s already been paid for by last year’s class.

So if you’d like this to be the year you become self-directed, get on the early notification list. By the end of 2016, your life can be a whole lot better. And by this time next year, you’ll be on the way to the life you’ve always wanted with thousands of dear friends cheering you on. 🙂
