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 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 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!

Week 3: refusing the call

Being a Master Key Experience guide gives me a unique perspective on the course. Not only am I doing the course again with the members (and getting new insights on my own) but I’m watching fifteen people make – or not make – their own Hero journeys.

Every hero refuses the call at first. That refusal can be anything:

  • procrastination to the point where they miss the application deadline (about 400 people did that),
  • confusion to the point where they don’t do any of the work and are eventually asked to leave,
  • defensiveness: refusal to get help when they clearly need it or arguing when they do get some,
  • manifesting obstacles,
  • all the way to downright saying “I’m out”.

These are people who are simply being asked to answer the question: what do you want?

As far as I know no one has been actually asked to leave yet in the over 600 people enrolled, but I’m sure there will be some fireworks to come. 🙂

What is refusing the call about? Fear.

It’s interesting that Haanel spends most of part 3 talking about fear, since so much of it is coming out right about now. The solution for it is expressed best in the week 3 study questions:

How may fear be completely eliminated?

By an understanding and recognition of the true source of all power.

I feel like these first few weeks are the most difficult of the course … like weeks 2-6. In week 1, you’re all pumped up, ready for anything. Then it sort of stops being so exciting and fun and begins to feel like work. Lots of stuff to do but maybe not so much happening yet. I remember those days very well.

But then once you accept the call, step across into the unknown, you begin to ‘get it’ – the light bulb turns on, you start seeing what this is really all about and it becomes much easier.

Some people are beginning to get it even now: the realization that YOU can change your life, that YOU have power, not because “you’re being your own god” as some ignorant person put on Facebook, but because God/The Universe/whatever is IN YOU, is directly connected to your subconscious mind, and you have the ability to communicate directly to that Power.

Every religious figure and most philosophers have said this over the past 6000 years, but people still want to cling to the old blueprint that tells them some authority figure or organization or society needs to tell them what to do and think in order to be okay instead of relying on the power within them like their own religious books tell them to do. It would be funny if it weren’t so sad.

But I’m seeing some amazing breakthroughs as people do the work and really wrestle with these questions on their own. It’s truly exciting to see what can happen when you stop refusing the call.

Master Key Experience Opens Today

Hi, everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that the Master Key Experience (or Master Key Mastermind Alliance/MKMMA) first video is available!

I remember this time last year, not knowing what to expect, wondering if this was some sort of scam or build up to a hard sell. But when I saw this video, for the first time I began to hope that things really could change in my life.

(no, it’s not a religious thing, either)

I hope that you’ll take a few minutes and see the first video. If you’ve been on the fence about this, it will begin to explain exactly what this is about. You’ll understand why you haven’t been able to make those changes you’ve wanted to, and get a lot of your questions answered.

This course is going to fill fast. It’s already paid for using a pay it forward scholarship, where last year’s members paid your way in. So don’t get shut out by waiting until the last minute.

Click this to see the first video.

PS. You’ll be asked to enter your email address — they’ll send you information about when the second video is posted, so enter your best email there. They don’t spam you or pressure you to buy anything.

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.

 

 

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. 🙂

 

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. 🙂
