Week 12 (part 2): a revelation

In my last post, I talked about my subby, and how it was just as good as anyone else’s.

Well, today during my sit, I had this revelation: my subby is exactly the same as everyone else’s: everyone who has ever been born, everyone who ever will be born, all the explorers and philosophers and magnates and adventurers.

I have the same subby as Alexander The Great, the same as the Polynesian canoe-men who crossed vast distances to see what lay beyond before there were compasses to guide them, the same as the ancient warrior women of the North, who they say fought with an axe in one hand and their baby in the other. I have the same subby as Socrates and Leonardo, as Elizabeth I and Marie Curie. And if there are beings out there beyond the stars who think, I have the same subby as they do.

When I realized this, I felt overwhelmed with it and began to cry. My subby is so precious.

It gives me new motivation to succeed with this mental diet (I’m up to two days at a time so far), so that I can be the person I was meant to be.

 

Week 12: let abundance in!

This week has been … the only word that even comes close is mind-blowing. But that doesn’t do it justice.

We began with an exercise which was the most amazing experience I’ve had in my 52 years here on this earth, and I’ve experienced quite a bit. I won’t spoil it with details for those of you thinking of joining the course next year, but I was able to tap into what Davene called “your true self” for just a few moments, and it was incredible.

Definitely worth it.

But there’s more!

The reading this week … I haven’t totally gotten my head around it all yet, but I’ll try to share as much as I can.

I’ve come to dislike the requirement to post the blog so early in the week, because I invariably want to write more at the end of the week as I feel like I finally understand some things, and then of course everyone just focuses on that last post and ignores the one with the meat in it that I spent so long working on. But that’s life, I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

Part 12 begins by reminding us to focus, to keep going forward, and to have “eternal vigilance” about our thoughts. Sounds a lot like the mental diet! ๐Ÿ˜‰

But then, Haanel says something that I found very interesting:

There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.

Now, Mark J did something during the webinar this week that this reminded me of: he wrote out checks to people who had helped him with doing something (I forget now what, but it had to do I think with helping promote the MKMMA) and he said that this was creating a demand (!) for his future project to work.

So his faith to do created in his mind a demand for subby to produce the funds for what he’s up to!

(Now, I’m sure he has the money in the bank, don’t get me wrong. But I can tell that he’s up to something bigger.)

Anyway, back to Haanel:

… you can construct an ideal business, an ideal home, ideal friends, and an ideal environment. You are not restricted as to material or cost. Thought is omnipotent and has the power to draw on the Infinite bank of primary substance for all that it requires. Infinite resources are therefore at your command.

But your ideal must be sharp, clear-cut, definite …

He goes on to talk about people who are constantly going from one thing to another, and how “indecision and negative thought” can cause the loss of everything you’ve worked for. Then he says:

… the only real power which you can have is the power to adjust yourself to Divine and unchangeable principles. You cannot change the Infinite, but you can come into an understanding of Natural laws. The reward of this understanding is a conscious realization of your ability to adjust your thought faculties with the Universal Thought which is Omnipotent. Your ability to cooperate with this Omnipotence will indicate the degree of success with which you meet.

Basically, you got to get out of your own way. You have the overwhelming abundance of the entire universe at your command! But you have to decide what you want, you have to let go of fear, negativity, and stubbornness (I see people reject this whole thing because of a closed mind, which Haanel later calls the lack of “a corresponding vibratory brain cell prepared to receive it”), and you have enough faith to work at it. (remember the whole vigilance part?)

The law is that thought will correlate with its object and bring forth in the material world the correspondence of the thing thought or produced in the mental world. We then discern the absolute necessity of seeing that every thought has the inherent germ of truth in order that the law of growth will bring into manifestation good; for good alone can confer any permanent power.

Then he goes on to say something really interesting:

… the law of the attraction, which is another name for love.

… It is feeling that imparts vitality to thought. Feeling is desire, and desire is love. Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.

This is why Mark keeps harping on having enthusiasm (the word literally means “possession by a god”!). Intense feeling attached to a thought gives that thought power, gets your subby going after it 24/7 with all 4 billion connections, taps into the Universal Mind’s infinite resources, and all that good stuff. (or bad, depending on the thought) This is how the law of attraction works.

Our sit this week seems to me to be focused on continuing to develop the knowledge of our power, which I feel is this: Since each of us is a fractal curl on the huge universal design, I have been given the same amount of power as Bill Gates, Martha Stewart, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, JK Rowling, you name it (ie. infinite). My solar plexus is just as good as theirs.There is no real reason why I can’t achieve my dreams as much as they have theirs.

I just have to learn to use that power, to get out of my own way, to become enthusiastic in cooperating with the Universal Mind, in order to let all that abundance in. ๐Ÿ™‚

Week 11 (footnote): a tale of three carts

I feel as if I’m getting a better grasp of this week’s meditation topic, and I wanted to share a few last things before the week ends and we move on.

After I read part 11 in the Master Keys today, I wrote:


ย Trust in subby

who is a small part of the

Universal Mind

All will be taken care of for you.

Fear blocks the process

so worry is

counter-productive

Nothing good can get to you.

If the Universal Mind

is the Creator

who brings all good

Fear is the

Anti-creator

who stops all good

The cloud that hides the sun inside you.


Section 30 of part 11 of the Master Keys says:

You ask in what does the creative power of thought consist? It consists in creating ideas, and these in turn objectify themselves by appropriating, inventing, observing, discerning, discovering, analyzing, ruling, governing, combining, and applying matter and force.

As far as I know, humans are the only living beings who create ideas.


I had conversations with two women this week on different days at different times. These are women I consider friends. Very different women who have chosen different lives, but I spent an hour with each one in very different settings. Perhaps it’s the generation they are in, because that is the only common factor, other than the fact that the whole conversation on their end was full of negativity.

I think I am more sensitive to the feelings of others than most people, or else I’m not all that great at shielding my poor subby yet, because I had a physical reaction each time after hearing these things.. These women had put lives of disease, poverty, fear, and self-destruction into their carts, looking towards futures more limited with every year. It grieves me, because I feel they are worth more than that.

(Yes I suck at not having opinions. Perhaps this is part of my problem.)

I don’t yet have the words or the skills to talk to them about their carts, or even the wisdom to know if I should.


So what am I putting in my cart?

Physical health, specifically: quiet breathing, internal organs and teeth in perfect function and alignment, dark reddish-brown hair, muscles and joints which function perfectly, skin which is smooth and radiant.

Mental and emotional health: peace for my entire self (this is a big one), love, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-respect, perfect boundaries towards others. Courage, confidence, harmony, and intimacy with like-minded people.

A clean home, a lovely edible yard, abundant resources to have financial independence and security, with the ability to travel anywhere I want to in comfort. The joy of creation, using every talent I have to the best of my ability.

I feel as if my cart is looking pretty good so far. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Week 9: I am a seed

I was just mentioning on the forums that this has been the most peaceful holiday I have ever had. I love the Mental Diet — it makes it much easier to let the negativity around me just slide past and away.

I feel as if I’m finally beginning to enjoy the course without anxiety or fear, that my old blueprint is realizing that it’s no longer welcome, and that the new one is going to be the way things are going to be.

This week we’ve been asked to think of a flower that we really like, and follow it from seed to finished plant in bloom.

There are several things that struck me with this exercise so far:

  1. Seeds know how to do everything — they can make roots, stems, leaves … it’s all there
  2. As it says in the Master Key, the cells of a seed know what they want, and they know how to get it
  3. Seeds are always searching, first for the confirmation that they’re in the right environment, then for opportunities and resources … they send out roots, powerful things that will split rock to get what they want, always driving deeper and farther to find the best for the plant
  4. The seed is the center and the beginning of it all — it provides the energy for the rest of the plant to begin growing, and where the seed is becomes the powerhouse meeting of the root and stem, the very center of the plant
  5. First the roots, then the leaves. First the foundation then the building. First the gathering of resources then the expression … everything a plant does is to attract more of what it wants to itself … water, nutrients, sugars, insects for pollination

The seed to me represents all the possibilities of the plant in one tiny thing, sort of like the tiny thing before the Big Bang which created the entire Universe, only of course “lesser in degree”. Like my subby working in my solar plexus to create spiritual roots that go deep to grab hold of solid ground around me, the resources I need to grow tall and strong.

This week, we were instructed yet again as to how to take hold of what we need. Like the cells in the plant, I know what I need and I know how to get it. I look forward to see how it unfolds.

 

Week 3: fear is the cloud that hides the sun

Doing this daily sitting shows me very clearly how many fearful thoughts there are running around in my brain.

Ideas and thoughts come into the brain, which is supposed to be evaluating them to see if they are true, then they are sent to the subby, which the Master Keys says is in the Solar Plexus.

The Solar Plexus is called that for a reason!

The Solar Plexus has been likened to the sun of the body, because it is a central point of distribution for the energy which the body is constantly generating.

This energy goes to the entire body, helps energize the brain so you can think better, helps keep the body going, and goes out to help and encourage others.

This explains why some people have what they call “magnetism” and seem to be able to effortlessly get people to like them, listen to them, and do things for and with them. And others don’t.

Since what we think with our conscious mind influences and directs the subby, and thus the Solar Plexus, constructive thinking is even more important:

Thoughts of courage, power, confidence and hope all produce a corresponding state, but the one arch enemy of the Solar Plexus which must be absolutely destroyed before there is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun…

Here’s the bottom line:

Since the conscious mind is controlled by us

and the subby is controlled and directed by the conscious mind

and the subby is the outlet to the infinite power of the Universal Mind, which is THE creator of everything

then we potentially have control of “the unlimited creative power of the Universal Mind”!!

Which is very cool. It’s the best news you could possibly get, because it takes care of everything in life.

Once you really understand this (which I’m still trying to get my mind wrapped around, tbh) then you “have nothing to fear; fear will have been destroyed and you will have come into possession of your birthright.”

I love this last part … birthright means inheritance, what you are entitled to simply because you were born.

According to this you say clearly what you want, without fear, and subby does all the rest.

Figuring out clearly what you want and removing fear seems to be the two big obstacles to overcome, and that’s what we’ve been up to this week. I feel as if I’m making a lot of progress on both of these so far.
