My 500 words

Week 12: the connection

I read a short story a few weeks ago about a man who died and walked with God for a while, someone who looked basically like anyone else, and they talked. The main idea of the story was that this man who had just died was the only person in the universe, here to live every single life possible to live.

(God told him that his next stop was going to be to live as a woman in 5th century China.)

Once this person lived all their lives and learned all the things they needed to learn, they would be given their own universe, their own person, and get to talk to the person they were assigned to when they had completed each of their lives.


This week, Haanel reminds us of our connection to the Universal Mind, and gives a good suggestion as to how to recognize it: silence, what in the class we call the Sit.

I was out walking today (in silence), and considering the idea of us all being connected, how we have the same subby as everyone else does. This isn’t a new idea to me. But it hit me today: if I have the same subby as everyone else does, then there is only one subby.

As in the story, we are just one person.

When I see you, I see the part of me that is you: our subby. Namaste is how the Hindus put it, recognizing that part and honoring it.

My thought expanded on this: when I see an aspect of someone, I am seeing that aspect of me in them.

I see someone who is talented and wise, and I see the part of me which is this way.

I see someone who is prejudiced, and I acknowledge the times I have judged others by the way they looked without knowing anything about them.

I see a happy dog, or a smiling baby, and I see the joyful simple heart within me which delights in life itself.

I see a fearful xenophobic person and I see the fear which resists letting others in who might hurt me.

I see a generous person and I acknowledge the generosity within myself.

I see an angry, hateful person and I recall the times I have lashed out at others.

In a way, this thought turns having opinions on its head, because when I form an opinion about others it’s really an opinion about me.

Mark J said a similar thing last year sometime, but at the time I didn’t really get it: if we didn’t have an aspect of ourselves in us, we wouldn’t be able to see it in others. Sort of like the ‘vibratory brain cell’ Haanel talks about which we need to be able to grasp a completely new idea.

Combine this with the law of attraction and I have new insight about why letting go of judgment, or negative opinion, is so important: my thoughts attract what I think about to me and reinforce it. It’s all about focus, and what do I want.

There is only one subby, just as there is only one Mind. We can change who we are, and by extension, who everyone else in the world is, if we only make the connection.

 

Week 11: I hear that train a-comin’

The question I had to face this week was: if I’ve been doing all this manifesting stuff right for the past year or so, why am I still not getting everything I want? Haanel has the answer:

“… while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect in turn becomes a cause, which create other effects, which in turn create still other causes; so that when you put the law of attraction into operation you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.”

In other words, the things you are getting right now are things which you (or if you’re a baby, dog, or other creature without agency, someone else) started manifesting a LONG time ago, just as a train doesn’t just appear on the tracks but has to be created and moved to where you are, and you’re not getting a train going anywhere from a dead stop in a hurry. It usually takes at least a little time. And conversely, the things you’re manifesting now will also take some time to get going depending on what they are and whether you may have the brakes on. 🙂


I have had a problem with being addicted to scarcity. I grew up rich as a child then my parents lost everything and it took a long time for them to get back to a good place financially, and then my father died and we were poor again. Then it took a really long time to get my career going (making more than I could ever imagine), and then I had a nervous breakdown.

I feel as if my old blueprint is set up to say ‘If you become wealthy it only brings you pain, loss, stress, and illness.’

I’ve talked about this before, and yet this week here I was again with that old demon. I wanted to manifest success in my business and it has seemed as if all I get is resistance at every turn.563121_630170500357775_1390384717_n

Then this popped up in my Facebook feed. And it hit me like … like someone slapped me in the face.

I have marked myself down.

Even now, I feel emotional at writing it.

I do feel as if I’m not being treated with love and respect.

But I really have a dilemma, because this business is everything I have ever wanted. It’s smack in the middle of my DMP. It – theoretically – meets both my PPNs. It’s been a passion of mine for decades. It’s my ticket to the dream of my life. It’s one of the things I want to be remembered for.

Do I just walk away? Or do I sidestep the rock there on the beach and keep going?

Anyway, I don’t have to decide any major business things today. But what I did do is to sign up for a course about upping your game in your business, which just so happened to be in the same place and a few days after a major venue to sell my book at which I’ve been looking at going to for months.

So I’m getting the feeling that the universe is nudging me along. Maybe it’s not the business. Maybe it’s the people I put on the damn train.

I already made the decision to set up an environment where the ones who won’t behave will kick themselves out, and if they don’t, I’m fully prepared to kick them out of the train myself.

But I feel as if I need to change me as well. I need to get off that clearance rack, the kiddie track, stop discounting, stop pricing my products to feed into the scarcity mindset that the whole rest of the world has. That’s the opposite of why I started the business in the first place.

I keep thinking of this quote from Og Mandino, which I’ll just leave here:

I was not delivered into 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 lioness and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. I hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

 

 

Week 9: the seed must be love

I hope all of you have had a good week. Here in the US we have been celebrating our Thanksgiving holiday, which is full of good food (most of which I make in our household, although this year one of my sons helped me make the pies), seeing friends and family, and relaxing.

It’s mostly about love, which is what I want to talk about today.


I didn’t really know what to do my blog on this week, yet several interesting things happened which subby brought together for me this morning on my sit:

  • I’ve had several wonderful emails: Master Key members thanking me for being their guide and friends who are reading my novel telling me how much they like it.
  • My daughter bought me a DVD copy of Bicentennial Man as an early Christmas present, a movie we only had in VHS.
  • After dinner was served, my kids picked to watch V for Vendetta

But let’s back up. There are certain premises I’m basing what I’m about to say on:no coincidences

  1. that every thing which happens or is has a cause. Things don’t just appear. There are no magic wands.
  2. that just as a seed will only sprout into the plant which corresponds to it, a particular cause will produce a particular effect. If you throw a ball up, gravity will bring it down. If you plant pumpkin seeds, you get pumpkins, not daisies or sweet potatoes or turnips.

The truly interesting thing about all these events this week is that they were about love.


I have to admit that I judge people on whether they like Bicentennal Man. I feel it is the most underrated Robin Williams movie out there; it’s the only one I can bear to watch even now, a year after his death.

If you’re not familiar with it, the movie is about a human spirit trapped inside a robot, who spends his entire life trying to deal with a world who sees him as “a household appliance”. He wants recognition as a person. He wants respect. He wants love. And when he falls in love, he helps millions of other people while trying to save the woman he loves from death.


You see, when you plant love, you reap much more than what you sow.

We all see the results in the news of planting hate or fear.

V for Vendetta has many interesting characters in it, but the main two people I really feel the movie is about are V and Inspector Finch.

V says some things I find quite interesting. When he’s trying to help Evey through her mini-breakdown:

See, at first I thought it was hate, too. Hate was all I knew, it built my world, it imprisoned me, taught me how to eat, how to drink, how to breathe. I thought I’d die with all my hate in my veins. But then something happened.

When she begs him not to go through with his plan, that they could run away together, he says, “I can’t.” Why?

It’s because of what he says at the very end:

For 20 years, I sought only this day. Nothing else existed… until I saw you. Then everything changed.

V never comes out and says it, but I think that he knew that if he ran away with her, not only would she never be safe, but he would betray all those people he had called to be there that night.

It was no longer about hate. It was about love.

And then we come to Inspector Finch, who I believe is the most interesting man in the show. Why? Because he was on that panel! He was at the highest place possible in that society yet his love for the truth brought him to where he could no longer ignore what was going on. Without that transformation the ending could never have happened.


What does any of this have to do with the Master Key Experience? Everything. Because when you plant love, when you reach down into your soul with those roots of yours and find what you love, what drives you, what you were born to do, then sacrifice (which a TON of people in the class are still having trouble with) becomes obvious. You know what you’d be willing to give up in order to get what you want. You know exactly what you need to do, to change, to let go of, in order to get it.

So if you’re still struggling with what your sacrifice is, it seems to me that either you haven’t thought the matter through or your motivation isn’t love. Your DMP is still about the cement: the hate, the fear, the whatever the world outside has told you that you should want. Because when the seed is love, the plant is strong and beautiful, and nothing can stand in its way.

Week 8: the world is filled with outrage

I was going to write about all the nonsense that’s been going on in the past week or two, about Paris and Mexico, Kenya and Baghdad, the poor Syrians and the frightful situation still going on in Japan (where I lived for a short while), but it seems as if even now, people are moving on to the latest outrage de jour.

Emmet Fox has something to say about all that in the 7 Day Mental Diet:

If I witness an accident or an act of injustice, instead of reacting with pity or indignation, I refuse to accept the appearance at its face value; I do anything I can to right matters, I give it right thought, and let it go at that …

For I only have one life: a limited number of years, of months, of weeks, of days, hours, minutes, seconds. How many do I have left?1505372433_f9fb36a779_m

I don’t know, which is the very point. Instead of using the finite time and energy I have on things I neither know much about or can do anything about, I must focus, just as a magnifying glass focuses the rays of the sun, on things I am good at, I can physically do, I enjoy doing, I want to do, and what fulfills my needs: the things I was born to do, that only I can do in order to make this world better.

That may or may not involve the outrage de jour; it’s likely not to. The mob always goes for the quick and easy path.

Today, I went on a walk. It was cold and clear, the autumn leaves were brilliant. We have an exercise this week in the Master Keys to go backwards in time from a physical object (a battleship) to its sources. I did that for a whole week last year, so I decided to tackle my most impressive of objects: the space habitat I will design the landscaping for. I looked up into the blue morning sky, and imagined it. How did it get there? What happens to get it up there?

It was the most amazing experience. When I came back from the growth, the plantings, the development of the soil, the forming of the areas to hold the soil in, the building of the station itself, the technologies needed to create the parts (3D printing, I think, is the way), gathering the raw materials, building a place for these constructions to happen and the people doing them to live, the backers and engineers to send these things up, rallying and finding these people, the idea, the dream.

Me, walking along a suburban street in a housing tract in central Oklahoma.Sun_through_Conifer_Leaves

I felt for the first time, today, that this really could happen. I see it. Not every little detail, but I know when it will happen. I know where I will be living, say, 20-30 years from now: there on that space habitat, when those fruit trees are grown enough so I can look up and see the sun (or whatever we set up to pass for the sun) shining down at me through their branches.

I know that I am called to make this happen. It is what I was born to do. This is the way I will fulfill my PPN of Legacy: I will matter, and pass on something which inspires people for generations to come.

You can too.

Why spend your time worrying about the outrage de jour when you can change the world?

Week 6: welcome to the machine

I love this week’s teaching from Haanel, because I’ve been interested in the mind and brain for quite a long time. What he says is that the human brain is the most incredible machine ever. Of course, when you have an array of machines, even machines which are similar, there are going to be variations in how well they work.

Thought is the manifestation of the power that runs these machines, and thought is what goes out and does things. Not in the mystical sense or any sort of extra-sensory way, but since thought links us back to the subby, the portal to the Universe, a thought here has far-reaching implications everywhere.

This is where people get all twisted up, because they either don’t believe they have this power (with all that it implies) or they do believe it and are totally freaked out by the idea.

Phenomenal cosmic power, itty bitty living space. 😉

That’s actually truer than you think. Our thoughts are really the only thing preventing every one of us from being as rich as we want, as happy as we want, as powerful as we want, right now.

No, I take that back. We are EXACTLY, right now, as rich/happy/powerful as we have convinced subby we want to be. Think about that for a moment.

The whole point of this course is to persuade subby that we really want something else, to convince it once and for all that things must change, and in specific ways.

Which leads me to the other point Haanel makes this week: the spiritual must come first before anything will happen. Not in the religious sense, reading books or counting beads or any outward thing (although there’s nothing wrong with those things) but in the connection to the Infinite.

In the Master Key Experience we call it the ‘sit’. Sitting still, clearing your mind and letting yourself connect with the Universal Mind is the only way to get anything done of any value. Early on we learned of the Law of Relaxation: mental effort defeats itself. A relaxed state of mind is the doorway to mental progress.

Why? Because that’s when you get in touch with the real Power, without which our machine can’t run properly.

Just as if you put diesel into a regular car it might run for a bit but it will end up destroying the engine, trying to run your machine without proper fuel ends up … well, right where you were when you learned about this course. It takes a bit longer to jam up the works, perhaps, but the gunk and corrosion and other effects are just as terrible in the long term.

What happens with most people is that when things aren’t working right with the fuel they’re using, they just rev the machine harder! They work more, try more, do more, instead of stopping, sitting, tapping into the Source, and changing the fuel they’re using, starting the process of setting things right.

But the good news is that the mechanism can be cleaned, fixed, and set in good working order. Anyone can get their minds back on track, to have the things they truly want in their lives. Even you. 🙂

Week 4 – how do you want to feel?

10273430_10152211471133366_7187797986126513386_nI’ve been reading a book lately which has really made an impact.

I’m not going to share the name of it right now because this is the week where everyone gets sidetracked on reading other stuff and doing other stuff … and I’m not going to be part of contributing to that.

But what I’ve gotten out of it so far is very much like what we’re doing here in the Master Key class, but coming at it in a different direction.

In week 2 you get a couple of sheets which I have tacked up on my wall: Seven Laws of the Mind. One of them is called the Law of Dual Thought:

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

The reason why I mention this is that the book I’m reading is all about the question, “How do you want to feel?”

I believe that most of the problems in this world are an attempt not to feel. Most of the business of refusing the call is an attempt not to feel, whether it’s not to feel

  • shame at failing (because in your particular old blueprint you always fail)
  • guilt at wanting something for yourself instead of others (this is very common in women)
  • fear that your feelings will overwhelm you or make you less of a person (very common in men)

or whatever your issue is.

Feelings are what makes us human. When we can’t identify how we want to feel or deny the fact that we do feel, we cut ourselves off from the rest of humanity, worse yet, from the source of life within us (whatever you want to call it: the Universe, God, etc). We begin to die inside.

So we need to feel: the good, the bad, the ugly.

The sit is good for that, which is why so many avoid it, find problems with it, don’t have time for it, would rather do anything else but it. Sitting, alone, in silence, not moving, you’re forced to deal with yourself. Who you are. What you feel.

And I think it’s this more than anything else which makes grown up people throw tantrums and flounce away from changing their life. They are SO afraid to feel.

Hopefully, if you’ve gotten this far you’re at least beginning to get past that. So I’ll ask you: how do you want to feel?

I found this question very helpful. Even though I did the course last year and I’m a guide now…

(and released from supervision, woo hoo!)

(still love you Dayna! but I’m excited to be making progress)

… I have gone round and round with my PPNs (personal pivotal needs). But reading about the question of how I want to feel, and how others want to feel brought me up against:

I want to feel like I matter.

Which is the definition of Legacy! Which is something I’ve been thinking about for a while, but reading that made it click for me. Now my DMP makes much more sense.

So if you’re having trouble with your PPNs or your DMP, think about what you want to feel!

I know you’re scared.

I know you’re scared. I was too.

You think it must be a scam. That did cross my mind too.

You’re worried you might fail. Yep. Me too.

You are afraid of the ‘pay it forward’, because you’re broke, or in debt, or just don’t trust that this isn’t just another way to get you to buy something. I get you.

You’re worried it’s just a religious thing, or not religious enough, or you’re going to get pressured or coerced to do something you don’t want to do. I didn’t actually write about that, but those things did cross my mind as well. You see, I was a Christian lay minister for 14 years, but I was also a survivor of some pretty nasty spiritual mind control stuff. So I get leery of anyone telling me they got ‘the truth’ about something.

But these people aren’t interested in telling you ‘the truth’. They’re interested in helping you find YOUR truth. Mark’s favorite saying is “the best influence is NO influence”. I didn’t find anything in the course which went against any religion, yet it certainly wasn’t shoving any religion down my throat. Most people from a religious background find that this course helps them understand the basis behind their religion so much more. I know it did with me.

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I signed up to be a Guide for this year’s course. We’ve been doing weekly classes to help us guide you through the course. I guess I’ll get 15 people to work with.

They told us we were going to get a ‘final exam’ a few weeks ago, and I think this last Sunday was it: they sent us a bunch of sample homework assignments to look over and revise, to see if we were understanding what to do to help you.

We got one where the guy was basically in despair. There was one phrase in everything he wrote which could even be construed as slightly positive. It was heartbreaking.

So I thought, this guy’s pretty brave. Not many men would just spill like that. Then I thought, okay, let’s take that one positive phrase, encourage him on that, and see where we can take it.

Later, my staff member Dayna (we’re supervised until they are dead sure we know what we’re doing, which is wonderful) said I did good. And then she said those were real people’s first tries at finding their purpose.

Wow, I thought. I asked “what happened to that guy? Did he finish the course?”

She said, “He’s one of the guides”.

Now, you can’t be a guide unless you:

  1. finish the whole course
  2. actually are using the course (not just checking the boxes), which is easy to see in what’s going on in the person’s life: they are manifesting their dreams, making a difference in the world around them, their families, everything
  3. take the guides training and pass that

I was blown away. I tell you this to say that no matter how bad off you are, no matter how badly in debt you are, no matter how awful you feel about yourself, this will help you, assuming you do the work.

If you’re like most people and are scared to death, it’s okay. The difference between those who stay being scared and never get what they want and those who do get what they want is one thing: action. Go here, leave your email (a good one: it’s how they track scholarships), watch the videos and the Q&A session, and get in the course. They are closing it Monday night, and you need some time to get the things together you need in order to fill out the application.

Don’t wait. I don’t want you to be regretting it for the whole rest of the year that you didn’t do what you needed to do now.

Looking forward to seeing what you do on your own journey.

Patty

 

Finding time for yourself

I’ve had a lot of people asking me questions this week about the Master Key Experience. The number one question has been: can I do this? The thrust of this is generally around the time commitment.

So I direct them to this page.

But this is what I think is going on. Because, as Mark likes to point out, you can’t manage time. It ticks past no matter what you do. But you can manage yourself.

A man named Joseph Campbell got interested in stories, so he went around collecting stories from all over. Religion, mythology, literature, movies, plays, and he found they were all similar. So similar, in fact, that he wrote a book about it, called “The Hero’s Journey”.heros_journey4_8462

He also made a chart, and his work has been talked about a lot. In fact, when George Lucas made the first Star Wars movie, he asked Joseph Campbell to consult on the movie, because he wanted to get it just right.

This is a very abbreviated version of his chart, which I’ll expand on in a bit.

You see the little guy at the top? That’s you! You are the hero in this story. You’re being called to an adventure.

You might be saying, “How can I be a hero? I’m just an ordinary (fill in the blank).” All heroes say that. All heroes begin that way. But you are one. You just don’t know it yet. And you’re being called to an adventure.

You don’t know what’s going to happen.

You’re in your comfortable “known” life. Things are probably not okay (if they were okay, you wouldn’t need to be called to go on the adventure, you hero, you!), but they’re “known”. Things are safe, they’re routine, you know what will happen and when it will happen.

And then someone or something calls you. It could be a weird old guy who tells you to go to Alderaan, like in Star Wars. Or it could be God, like what happened to Jonah. Or it could be your own desire for something better. It doesn’t matter who or what calls you. What matters is that you’re being called.

How do you know you’re being called? You can feel it. You know it. Deep down, you know that this is your call.

You want to know the way you can be sure it’s your call? Because you resist it.Heros-Journey

You see where it says “Refusal of the call”? Everyone does it. Every hero does it.

Luke Skywalker told Obi-Wan no.

Jonah told God no.

Bilbo Baggins told Gandalf no.

You’re trying to figure out a way to say no too. And it’s okay.

There are as many ways to say no as there are people. My way was to get paranoid about the pay-it-forward. Your way might be something different. But most people freak out about something. My friends seem to be freaking out about the time commitment.

Which is only nine or ten hours a week at most, 45 minutes a day plus a 2 hour webinar on Sunday. If you can’t find 45 minutes a day for yourself, you REALLY need this course, because your life is way out of balance.

There’s another chart which I didn’t post here because it’s way too complicated, but it has a part which says “Bargaining without knowledge”. They’re trying to use the known world rules in the unknown.

People who do this have to know every bit about everything about the course before they join. Resisting the call.

Or they want to know can they just do some parts of it. Resisting the call.

Or they want to just do it one day of the week. Resisting the call.

It’s okay. Like I said, we all do it. The question is, what will it take for you to answer the call? To commit to the journey? To be the hero you’re being called to be?

When I started this, I was married, with three grown kids, running three online businesses, in a network marketing company, writing a novel, and doing a whole lot of other things, plus I had a pretty serious health condition. I’m still doing all those things (Although I’ve kind of put the network marketing business to the side. It’s just not what I want.). But I’m doing them better, stronger, faster. My health is a lot better too. 😉

Seriously. I’ve done flash cards in the bathroom. I’ve done my reading while waiting for my kids to get done with something. One class member has five small children and works full time. Another travels extensively. Another homeschools her kids. They all finished. If you want to do this you can do it.

Or you can wait until next year. Or you don’t have to do it at all. It’s up to you.

I don’t get paid for telling you to sign up. I want you to join because this will help you. They will fill this course, the question is really whether you’ll be there or whether you won’t.

You don’t do this on your own. You don’t even go into the unknown on your own. You’re going to get a mentor. See the mentor there? But first you have to accept the call.

Find time for yourself. You’re worth it. The world is waiting for you to be who you are.

 

 

Never give up. Never surrender.

Anyone who’s never watched Galaxy Quest, y’all just need to repent and go watch it. 😉

It’s really a brilliant example of the Master Key process.

For those four of you in the US who never watched this show, it’s about a bunch of washed up actors from a long-canceled science fiction show with a bunch of raving fans (they’re spoofing Star Trek) who encounter a group of actual aliens who have no concept of fiction and believe that the old shows are historical documents.

The aliens come to the guy who plays the captain on the series and beg him to help their people, who are being systematically exterminated by another race.

It’s these aliens, the Thermians, that I want to talk about. These guys are awesome.

When their civilization began to come under turmoil, they were looking to change their lives. They found these “historical documents”, and found value in the things which these shows portrayed. So they decided to improve their lives by holding to the principles found there.

Not much different so far than anything else, really — people find religion, or some self-help group, or something outside themselves to help them every day. And again, when they got into really deep trouble (genocide), the Thermians went searching for the man they thought was Peter Quincy Taggart and his “crew” to help them, not knowing they were only a bunch of actors.

The thing I found really moving about this show was when the actors were clearly failing at saving the day, the Thermians stepped up to the plate. They began giving encouragement to the actors, they believed in themselves and their people, they dug deep inside to take control of their own lives. They became heroic, in the face of torture and death.

So can you. 🙂

You might not face genocide, torture, or death, but in every journey to take control of your own life, there will be dark times as you struggle to accept the call to be who you want to be. Others will doubt you. You’ll doubt yourself. But if you can drill down to what YOU really want and what YOU really need, the cool thing about this course is that you have someone to guide you and a huge group of people who are on your side.

You might have just heard about this, or you might have been following me from day 1. I don’t know. But with every journey there’s a moment when you say to yourself, “do I really want to do this?”

It all boils down to: do you want things to change or not, because if you take this class, do what they tell you, and finish it out, your life WILL have changed. You will know what you want and need in your life. You will know what you are living for, and what you’ll die for — what unique gift you have to give to the world.

Those sound like big heavy things, and they’re different for each person in the world, but once you know them, your life gets so much easier, like a weight is lifted off. Life becomes so much simpler. You can make decisions easily, because anything which doesn’t fit you, you recognize at once, and you can let it slide away.

The Thermians went for what they wanted, and they found a spectacular adventure, more peace and freedom than they could have imagined, a whole world full of friends who appreciated and valued them.

I think that’s pretty cool. 🙂

Are you ready to receive?

mailbox-and-money

Of course I’m ready to receive! People will say. I want lots of love, lots of money, time with my kids, to travel the world, a new car … I want it all! I’m so ready to receive that you can’t imagine it!

But are you sure?

I’ve been reading Wallace D. Wattles’ book The Science of Getting Rich during the past couple of weeks, and this quote leaped out at me:

Never look at the visible supply; look always at the limitless riches in Formless Substance, and KNOW that they are coming to you as fast as you can receive and use them.

(emphasis mine)

There are a lot of people out there talking about the Law of Attraction, but I honestly think that this point right here is what they are missing. It’s why they aren’t getting what they want, even though they claim that it’s what they really truly do want.

How do I know this? Because I have been a huge offender in this area.

What do I mean exactly?

Okay, let’s say you want people to value what you do for them. You’ve done all these affirmations around that. But then when someone thanks you, or says you did a great job, you say “oh, it was nothing,” and point out all the other people who should really get the praise. When you’re going to get recognized for what you do, you suddenly get sick, or injured, or lost on the way.

Remember, we manifest our reality. Were you really ready to receive what you claimed you wanted?

Maybe that’s not a good example for you. Maybe what you want is money. You want to be a millionaire! You want the cars, the freedom to travel, the big home. You’ve done all these affirmations around that. But when it comes time to price your products, you constantly undervalue them, or if you do price them well, you create sales so often that your customers just wait for the next sale to buy. Or somehow you just can’t find time to do what you need to do in order to move your business forward. Or maybe you’re doing okay at work, but your car’s always breaking down, or someone always needs money from you, or you just can’t resist buying that new toy. Or when someone offers you an opportunity, you say “oh, I’m not qualified enough for that,” or “I don’t know if I could do that,” or maybe you get sick, or injured, or lost on the way.

Remember, we manifest our reality. Were you really ready to receive what you claimed you wanted?

You see, we can only receive when we’re ready to: when we have the structure in place to receive, when we are ready in our hearts to receive, when we are capable of receiving.

The Universe is always giving. There’s an infinite supply. But if you can’t receive, the gifts will go to someone who can.

So how can you become ready to receive?

I think you know what I’m going to say. 🙂

What are you thinking? What are you saying? What are you doing?

If your mind is not focused on what you want then it’s focused on what you don’t want. You can’t have it both ways.

But I can’t control what I think! you might say. Yes, you can. It’s difficult, because what you’re thinking is due to a blueprint that has been engraved on you since you were born. But you can change it. You are a grown human being. If you’re able to read this, you can do it.

That’s what the Master Key experience is all about, training you how to get hold of yourself so you can do that.

Some people are quicker at this than others. I’m sort of a slow-poke, I suppose, in that I’m just now beginning to see how my refusal and inability to receive has caused me all sorts of problems, both in relationships and finances. But as they say, seeing it is the first step in dealing with it.

Because without being ready and able to receive, all the asking in the world is going to get you nowhere.
