Tag Archive: getting what I want

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 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!

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!

The things you seek are seeking you!

The past few weeks have been very interesting. I’ve gotten a lot done. But the one thing which has jumped out at me is the demonstration of this passage in the Master Keys:

Abundance will not come to you out of the sky, neither will it drop into your lap, but a conscious realization of the law of attraction and the intention to bring it into operation of a certain, definite and specific purpose, and the will to carry out this purpose will bring about the materialization of your desire by a natural law of transference. If you are in business, it will increase and develop along regular channels, possibly new or unusual channels of distribution will be opened and when the law becomes fully operative, you will find that the things you seek are seeking you.

Here’s how it went: I’m writing a book, the sequel to the novel I published back in November. It’s almost done; I’m going to release it October 1st. So I’ve been spending some time promoting the first one. Well, I’ve had new and unusual (to me) channels of distribution (or to be more precise, marketing) open up to me. And for the first time, I’ve had people begin coming to ME asking if they might promote my book.

Mind blowing!

I hope your summer (or winter) is going well. I’m looking forward to the new Master Key Experience starting in September. It’s been really cool to see how much my three friends (and those who finished the course in my tribe) have had their lives change. I can’t wait to see what happens over the next year. 😀

Self-confidence

For the past several weeks I’ve been thinking about self-confidence.even back then we discussed self-confidence

It’s funny, when you think about it: I began this journey in September 2014, and the first thing we were asked to do is to write down and read something called the Blueprint Builder. I have the copy I wrote out here still, and I read it aloud every day.

And what does it talk about? Well, when you join the Master Key Experience, you’ll find out, but there are five points, and two are about self-confidence:

… demanding of myself the development of self-confidence …

… until I have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment …

But I never noticed this until the past few weeks. This word, self-confidence, began jumping out at me every morning when I read the Blueprint Builder, and it made me curious.

Now, self-confidence has never been my strong point. Up until recently!

I just got this banner made for an event I’m going to this weekend:self-confidence

It’s 2 feet high and 4 feet long. So my face and name are going to be up on a banner above my booth, in front of everyone!

I never considered it until today.

But two years ago? I would have NEVER EVER EVER done this. NEVER. Promote myself? NEVER. Put myself “out there”? No way!

(The banner turned out perfectly, by the way. I love it!! 😀 )

So I feel as if I’ve made huge strides in this area without even being aware of it, simply by following the instructions in this course. Because I’ve gotten very clear about WHAT I WANT and put the beat-down on my old blueprint and did the work daily to begin installing a new blueprint (which, as it turns out, includes fostering self-confidence in very specific ways).

The Master Key Experience is not a “spend a bunch of money and have nothing to show for it but a feel-good networking session”. This is seriously changing my life for the better.

 

The Law of Attraction is no secret

You might remember that movie “The Secret”? I never saw it but as far as I can tell from looking on Wikipedia that the premise is that the Law of Attraction is a secret that is being suppressed by some sort of conspiracy.secret

Which makes no sense to me: if it’s really a “Natural Law” (as Haanel claims it to be over and over) then it is just as evident as any other.

I wrote last week about knocking a chunk of what we call “cement” off – basically, getting to a root of something from my old blueprint which had been holding me back from what I could be. The next day I watched a webinar about releasing money blocks with some fantastic tools in it which I was now in the mindset to be able to use. Two days later I sold over $1000 of courses from one of my websites.

Cause and effect? Or coincidence?

Does it matter? My credit card company doesn’t care; they just want their money. 😉

Just for fun, let’s go backwards here. I’ve been pounding away on this particular website trying to make it profitable for over five years now. I’ve written hundreds of pages of information, and up to now, over 70% just clicked away from it. The particular course I sold all that with just now has been up and running for two years now. Barely a bite.

Could I have been attracting the wrong people, perhaps?

I haven’t changed much of anything on my website, except to make it more mobile-friendly a couple of months ago.

Anyways, I take the view that if something works, I don’t care about the details of why, unless it’s really relevant or interesting. I have too much to do with my life to spend time trying to analyze everything.

I’m pretty happy with this unexpected “experiment” – and this is making me think about my other experiment, which has been going on for over a year now. I’m making progress, but it’s not going as fast as I would like. Now I’m wondering why, and what different thoughts I might need to have in order to make it go faster.

You can do all this too: there’s no “secret” or “magic” about it. But first you have to begin looking at what you’re thinking right now, in real life. I have a booklet called “The 7 Day Mental Diet” which is free. Fill out the form at the top of this page (or the one that pops up, they both go to the same place), and I’ll send it to your email.

Looking back

Looking back at my second year with the Master Key Experience, I’d have to say it’s been pretty amazing. This time last year I was on my way to completing something I never thought I would even try – and it worked out great! Since then, I’ve:12841274_234206800257983_4398829372072310848_o

  • traveled to Hawaii (Kauai, Oahu, and the Big Island)
  • became a Certified Guide for the Master Key Experience
  • did the Small Product Lab (and made something cool)
  • made my first ever book trailer
  • did my first Indiegogo
  • published a novel (the Kindle version has broken the top 1000 in its categories on Amazon several times now)
  • written the second in the series (I’m revising it at present)
  • decided to quit selling Avon (it’s just not what I want to spend my time doing)
  • went to Wizard World New Orleans to sell my book (wow! That con was huge!)
  • did my first ever webinar (to sell my edible landscaping course, which is opening up again in a few weeks)

I think I did okay. 🙂

How are things with you?

Week 22: if you want something done …

I had forgotten which week the Silence was, but when Mark J said this was the week I got right on it – booked a hotel room, and went quiet from Monday afternoon to just a bit ago today. It was good.

But while I was keeping quiet, I thought of all the things which have been going on lately in my life. As it turns out, I’ve met another goal on my DMP, although not exactly the way I had planned to: I wanted a certain amount of money by a certain date, but while I thought I had specified where this was coming from, subby interpreted what I wrote in an equally legitimate way! And the money arrived. 🙂

Now I feel, though, as if it’s time to get serious.

Check out this Google search:

(I find that last one amusing)

But really, when it boils down to it, the best way to get something done is to have subby do it.

Last week, I was thinking “the floor needs scrubbing” – and I go out not ten minutes later and my son is working on it. He got the idea and motivation to do it and he gets up and down a lot easier than I do, and so it was done.

(as it turned out he only did part of it but the whole process amazed me)

It puts a new twist on the whole matter of doing things, because sometimes we stress and strain yet we might not even be the right person to do the job. We don’t know. But subby does know, and if we will just say what we want with enough precision, using emotion and enthusiasm, it will use the proper people and methods to get the job done. We just have to get all the voices out telling us we can’t do it out of the way.

Week 14: a universe

I hope all of you have had a good holiday.

Mine was better than most years, but then all of 2015 has been pretty amazing. You’re welcome to go back and read for yourself.

I don’t feel as if I have anything profound to say this week. I’ve been focused on spending time with my family and preparing to go to New Orleans next week to sell my book at Wizard World Comic Con.

But as a former physician whose Bachelor’s degree was in microbiology, I particularly liked Haanel’s reference to the microscopic world and how our cells are both intelligent and resourceful in carrying out their tasks.

I’ve read that a drop of intestinal flora carries more living creatures than the stars in the known universe. Quadrillions of them, bearing their children and living their lives. Each of us is a universe in our own right, and that thought makes me smile, remembering Men In Black and the galaxies in the game at the end.

And then of course one of my favorite scrolls began yesterday. We are nature’s greatest miracle indeed.

 

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.
