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.

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 7: a little bit of this, a little bit of that

All sorts of stuff has been happening for me this week! It’s been difficult to narrow it down to one topic, so I hope you don’t mind a bit of a list.men-working-978394_640

As Mark J likes to say: you want a friend, get a dog. Confronting people on their bullshit is hard for me; my old blueprint is all about people liking me and avoiding conflict at all costs.

Well, I came across someone who is both manifesting some intensely interesting things and turning away from what they insist that they really want, simply out of fear, and I called them out on it.

I don’t think they’re real happy with me, but you know what? I no longer care (for more than about 20 minutes to cry about the fact that they’re upset with me, anyway) what others think of me. What this person is doing leads to the dark side.

The things they’re manifesting (to me, anyway, but of course this is just my opinion) seem to be the visualizations of others rather than anything they said that they want.

That is the big danger of not having control of your mind: you see examples of people getting their dreams (or nightmares) in living color, and your subby, for lack of any real vision on your part, manifests that instead.

To me, this is just more cement!!

I almost fell into that trap last year, and it took me a while to see that no, I don’t NEED or HAVE to want what others — even others I respect, honor, and admire — want.

It’s okay to want what I want. I am worth something.

What people don’t seem to realize is that, contrary to popular belief, you’re ALWAYS manifesting things. Every waking minute. So you better have YOUR dreams front and center, in detail, or you’ll get swept away in everyone else’s visions that produce emotion in you.

Subby is a simple little thing, who just wants to give you more of what makes you have strong emotion, whether “good” or “bad” emotion (subby can’t tell the difference).

So you have to VISUALIZE what YOU want, with EMOTION.

Or as Mark loves to say, ENTHUSIASM!

I was sitting this morning reading my DMP and the truth of this finally hit me: when you get your two most important needs met (your PPNs) then the rest come along.

I really can have everything a person could possibly want. Not only True Health and Legacy, but Helping Others, Recognition for Creative Expression, Liberty, Autonomy, and Spiritual Growth.

That feels really good.

In other news: my book The Jacq of Spades is available to buy! Another successful development from my DMP. 🙂

Week 5 – Limitations

I’m in the middle of getting another box checked off on my DMP! I’m doing the cover reveal for my upcoming novel in a few hours. And it feels awesome. Exhausting, but awesome!!

Chris basically wrote what I was going to write (maybe better) so I’m going to leave this here:

As we go into week five of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance course I find that this past week a word has popped up more frequently than I had noticed in the past, maybe it’s because of what I am learning through this course, maybe it’s because I am beginning to observe things a little differently, maybe it’s the positive literature that we’ve been instructed to bombard our mind with day in and day out through this course, maybe it’s my old blueprint desperately clinging to my subconscious mind trying to get back in, maybe it’s the new blueprint showing me what’s held me back for so long.

The word is limitations.

Go read his blog and watch the video. It made me cry for several reasons.

I’m sure you can figure it out if you have known me very long.

Master Key Experience Course Launch Starts in 5 Days!

The 2015 Master Key Experience launch is starting September 10th! If you know anything about me or my family at all, you know how much our lives have changed over the past year since I participated in this program. This year:ocean

  • I got serious about publishing my novel, which comes out in December
  • I took my dream vacation in Hawaii
  • I made significant breakthroughs in my weight, my health condition, and my business

But it wasn’t just me who benefited. This year:

  • My husband began to change his life too
  • After years of battle, suddenly everyone is pitching in to do housework!
  • One of my sons began to open up to me, and our relationship has improved dramatically. I think this means more to me than anything else.

I am so grateful for this program, and believe so much that everyone should take it, that I participated in the “Pay It Forward” scholarship program. All you have to do is apply and pay a $1 USD (yes, ONE dollar) to join. The rest of this $2000 course is paid for by last year’s members, who believe as I do that this is worth it.

But this course — as you can imagine — fills up fast. You can get early notification and notice of any updates by signing up on the list below.

3 reasons to find out about the MKE

You might be wondering why you care about the Master Key Experience. What’s in it for you? Well, a lot.

Here are some reasons you might want to find out more about this program:

  1. If you’re willing to do the work, you can completely change your life for the better. If your life is perfect, you have everything you want, and you can effortlessly manifest everything you want, whenever you want, then you don’t need to find out more about this.
  2. You have the opportunity to network with hundreds of other people who are working as hard as they can to change their lives for the better. To find their dreams. To make the world a better place. And it’s not ‘network’ in the sense of a mutual spam-fest like most networking opportunities (recruiting other course members is strictly forbidden), but developing deep lasting friendships and contacts who have seen you at your worst and vice versa (and still love you! I’m looking at Trish and Dayna here), and people who have your back. People who actively wish you well no matter how crazy your dream seems to them.
  3. Even though Mark and Davene have been doing this for something like 15+ years, this online thing has only been a couple years in the making, and the pay-it-forward thing much less time than that. I think we were the second class to do that and it changed the whole nature of the course. You’re getting in on the most revolutionary educational program in the world, on pretty close to the ground floor. Mark sees this going to 30,000 someday; I see it going much farther. I’m not using hyperbole here, I’m just telling it like I see it.

So that’s why I think you should at least look into it. If you want to know when the introductory videos come out which explain the course in detail then fill out one of my newsletter forms and follow the directions. And I’ll email you. Simple as that.

I run three businesses, have a family, and I’m working day and night on getting to my dreams, so I’m not interested in spamming you.

My Master Key Experience

I’ve been asked to give a short review of the Master Key Experience. That’s difficult for me, because I have gotten so much out of this course that I’m having trouble keeping it short.

Bottom line: I feel this is something everyone should do. It should be taught in schools, in churches, in the halls of government. I feel that if it were, this world would be a much better place. People would become themselves, instead of feeling as if they have to pretend to be a copy of everyone else.

(Okay, I’ve already gone over the 300 word limit. You can read this if you want more about how it’s affected me personally, and I’ll write more on this blog too. Sign up for my list if you want to know when I do.)

Like anything, there are pros and cons. I always like to give the bad news first, so here we go.

Cons:

  • It will take some time out of your schedule: maybe ten minutes three times a day, then fifteen minutes once a day, then once a week, a 2 hour webinar (and I think they’re adding another 2 hour webinar once every week or so to help you with understanding blogging and social media, but don’t quote me on that). So 9 hours a week for 26 weeks. You can do more if you want, but that’s the requirement to keep your scholarship.
  • You’ll have to buy supplies: colored pencils, index cards, a few binders, and you’ll be asked if you did on your application. The whole thing cost me less than twenty bucks. Plus it’s a dollar to apply for the scholarship.
  • You end up printing out a lot of stuff: the workbook, the lessons, and some visual aids. You’ll need access to a printer and some printing supplies, but not until the first week or so, after you’ve been accepted.

Pros (if you do the work):

  • Your life will change for the better — you’ll be able to handle situations, people, and events like you never imagined you could.
  • You’ll end up with much more of what you want and much less of what you don’t want in your life. And you’ll know how to keep that process going for the rest of your life.
  • You’ll feel so much better in every way: physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I’ve had breakthroughs in my life that have completely amazed me and my family.

My recommendation, as someone who’s finished the course: do this. Go for it! You have nothing to lose. 🙂

 

The creative mind

I’ve been reading Wallace Wattles’ book The Science of Getting Rich lately, and he talks a lot about the creative mind.1175750_554402311261698_1808182561_n

The creative mind is more a mindset than anything else, and I see it as when you focus on the joy of creation, on being, on doing things because you either love doing them or because you’re helping someone else (like when you clean the toilet so it will be clean for your family).

The creative mind realizes that the world is full of infinite abundance, and that there’s more than enough for everyone. When you’re in the creative mind, you’re focused on beauty, gratitude, love, and living in the moment.

He contrasts the creative mind with the competitive mind, which unfortunately is where most people tend to live. The competitive mind is focused on what can I get? Why don’t I have what I deserve? Who do I have to beat out to get it? The competitive mind fears the world is lacking, a zero-sum equation, and that someone is going to get what you’re entitled to or take away the little you do have. When you’re in the competitive mind, you’re focused on worry, fears, debt, vengeance, the past or on the future.

The one thing that he’s crystal clear on: the only reliable way to succeed is to be in the creative mind.

This is something that I’ve been thinking about for the past two weeks pretty much straight, and one night I had these really anxiety-filled dreams. When I woke up I realized that I have been very much in a competitive mindset, even after going on nine months with the course. I suppose you could call it a breakthrough of sorts, because when you see something, that’s when you can start fixing it.

I feel as if I haven’t been very successful because I’ve been in the competitive mind through most of this. I know it’s because I’m still partially in my old blueprint, which is about as much in the competitive mind as a person can get. The times I have succeeded have been when I’ve been able to get into the flow, to be grateful, to do what I love because I love it or it helps someone else, not trying to get something for it.

(this doesn’t mean I don’t want to be paid; but it does mean that while I’m doing it, I’m “creating more life”, as Wattles puts it, so that everyone has more than when they began … a win-win situation)

1798409_746611042040823_5222064657687850644_n

It seems difficult to explain this properly, and the reason why this is, and why it’s become more difficult with each post, is something else I’ve been thinking of a lot lately. This blog is sort of like coming in the middle of a movie and not understanding most of what’s going on. I wouldn’t expect you to, because you haven’t taken the course yet.

If you’d like to be notified of early registration (before the course is open to the public), just sign up to one of my newsletters.

What I’ve been doing lately

For me, it almost seems as if the class hasn’t ended. Here’s why:

  • I have all these habits. When you’ve done something for months straight, you tend to keep doing them. Seeing as they’re really great habits (for example, doing what I say I’m going to do), it’s not such a bad thing.
  • I’m finding these great things to read that I overlooked before in the course. For example, this week I read Wallace Wattles’ book “The Science of Getting Rich”. Now, in week 22a, we watched/listened to the audiobook of this, but reading it in print for some reason impacted me much more. I think it’s a case of “when the student is ready, the teacher appears”, more than anything else.
  • Since I’m doing the Guide training, I still have webinars to go to and things to work on. But it’s much less intense than what we did in the 26 weeks.
  • I have made masterminds with people that I spent months with online, then got to meet in person and hang out with for a week or two! So I sort of know them, and it’s a lot of fun. I feel as if I have made friends.

So when I say that it doesn’t seem as if the class has ended, that’s a good thing! I really have enjoyed this, as tough a class as it’s been.

But what I’ve also been doing is working on my book series, more particularly, on my first novel in the series. It’s the next thing on my list to accomplish, and it’s with my editor right now (who doubles as my youngest son and has a real gift in this area), so I’m taking a break while he’s reading through it and making pages of notes (actually I don’t know how many notes, but he’s a tough customer!).

On my DMP, it’s coming out in December, and I have a boatload of things to do in the meantime. Right now, I’m taking an online course in film noir, so I can learn as much as I can about the genre and make my series really good.

Want to know more?

(shameless bragging here)

Tumblr for the series

Twitter account

So no one has asked me what the tree is about yet. That’s my tree buddy, and it is on my list of Hawaii stuff to talk about eventually. 🙂

I guess getting a lot of things done is good!

Anyway, you know the drill. If you want to know the next time I post something, you can fill out one of these forms, depending on what else you want along with it. I started off with the videos, but some people really like the mental diet. Whatever you’re cool with. If you’d rather just get notified of when I post without any of the other things let me know and I can set one up with just updates too. But I happen to think the mental diet is a great way to get a head start on the course.

Hope you’re having a great summer so far and can’t wait to see you in the course!
