Week 20 MasterkeySue

The Keys really spoke to me this week.  Especially this one:

  1. When you begin to perceive that the essence of the Universal is within yourself — is you — you begin to do things; you begin to feel your power; it is the fuel which fires the imagination; which lights the torch of inspiration; which gives vitality to thought; which enables you to connect with all the invisible forces of the Universe. It is this power which will enable you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully.

 

After wanting to give up last week, I started this week with some amazing things happening.  I was excited but I also realized I was fearful.  What if I didn’t live up to new clients expectations, what if … what if…what if.  Then I read the Keys and finally understood – not just intellectually –  where power comes from.  I am tired of dwelling on fear rather than joy and purposefulness.

I’ve been thinking more, breathing deeper, quieting my busy mind more.  It is a start and it makes me feel hopeful…hopeful that I will be able to Plan Fearlessly and Execute Masterfully!

Week 19 MasterkeySue

This was a difficult week for me -there is so much heartache around me.  If found myself feeling depressed for the first time in a long time.  I was ready to give up on MKMMA, ready to give up on my career, just ready to give up.

Then I realized that I hadn’t been doing the exercise – Concentrating on the object of my thought.  I wasn’t concentrating on who I intend to become but on sadness.  Last night I spent the evening “concentrating” and today I feel energized again.  Now I feel grateful that I have the tools to refocus my brain.  I did see that I need to go back to the beginning and forgive again.  I know that Forgiveness for me is the key to moving forward.  I can’t change others but I CAN change how I process their actions.  I’ll be working on my confidence level this next week – having the confidence to not let other’s actions hurt me and stop me from doing the work I need to do on my journey.  They aren’t the ones stopping me…I am.

Week 18 MasterkeySue

Happiness…I had no idea how much our brain and spirit are responsible for happiness.   I’ve spent my life waiting for happiness… with another job promotion, more money, more friends, a husband, a family etc., etc. etc.

This week’s lesson finally penetrated and a light bulb went on.  As I thought about what we learned this week, I finally understood that paying off my mortgage, being a top earner in the company was NOT going to make me happy.  I AM happy and on my journey many of my goals will be accomplished.  I intend to stop listening to  other’s who push me to earn more and more.  It isn’t about being at the top…it is about having what I need and enjoying it.  I am already earning more than I could have imagined and yet, it was never enough…because I was comparing myself to others.  I’m sure there are many that are comparing themselves to me, hoping to achieve happiness.

I look at my life and the wonderful people in it and I feel grateful.  I am grateful for MKMMA for giving me the tools to help me grow into “who I want to be”.  Are there challenges?  Absolutely!  Have I paid off my mortgage…No.  Can I still be happy…YES!

I wish all of you true happiness … while you continue on your journey!

Week 17 MasterkeySue

All I can say is …WOW!  “The Hero’s Journey” was unbelievable.  What a powerful story and what an amazing way to look at challenges.  I found myself watching her speak, looking at her legs … and feeling ENVY!  She had the legs I’ve always wanted.

I’ve been trying to look at my own challenges to find creative solutions.  I haven’t gotten there yet but what an exciting way to think about the things that have held me back over the years.  I am feeling more inspired, more energized and more sure that the answers are there.

11. Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical values; the average person has no conception of the meaning of concentration. There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”; they fail to understand that they cannot have one without the other, that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added.” Momentary enthusiasm is of no value; it is only with unbounded self-confidence that the goal is reached. 

This key spoke to me this week.  While I often have moments of enthusiasm, it never lasts.  I have not always done all the reading and sitting as required to develop new values.  My goal is “to become” not “have”.  That is so powerful!

Week 16 MasterkeySue

15. Whatever enters the mind through the senses or the objective mind will impress the mind and result in a mental image which will become a pattern for the creative energies. These experiences are largely the result of environment, chance, past thinking and other forms of negative thought, and must be subjected to careful analysis before being entertained. On the other hand, we can form our own mental images, through our own interior processes of thought regardless of the thoughts of others, regardless of exterior conditions, regardless of environment of every kind, and it is by the exercise of this power that we can control our own destiny, body, mind and soul. 

I spent a lot of time contemplating this one.  I’ve been working on this since week 1 and it is still a challenge.  I have done my best to surround myself with positive people and energy and eliminate negativity.  My most difficult times are when someone I love is going through heartache.  I find myself being pulled into the darkness just trying to be a support for them.  When I read 15 for the first time, I knew it was important – not only for me but for the person I was trying to support.  All of the exercises we are learning, help to change my mind set and I have to realize that it is ok for me to be happy when others are not.  My empathy and understanding is what they are looking for – not for me to go through their pain with them.  I need to be a safe place and an inspiration for others to see “what can be”.  I will keep contemplating this one!

Week 15 MasterkeySue

This week I am trying to understand the power and resources we have within and not listen to the negative voices telling me what I can’t do.  A part of me feels like a fool for wasting so much of my life being held back.  The other part understands we can only work with what we know.

So now I know and there can be no turning back if I want anything more in my life.  As I look at my life – 95% of my life is fantastic – 5% challenging.  Time to be grateful!

There are many things I would love to change, some I can – some I have no control over.  Let me feel grateful for the things I can change.  Time to spend more time reading!

MasterKeySue Week 14

The festivities are over and time to get back to work!!  I feel so excited for this next year.  I can’t wait to see how it unfolds…but this year I have a better idea of what will come.  I have much a much more clear vision of what I want and the steps that need to be taken.  There is still much work to do.  The difference is that I know what I’m working for and who I’m working for.

The changes have been slowly bringing me peace and joy.  I am most excited for the gifts I will bring to others going forward.  Harmony… It is hard to believe I can live in harmony even when chaos is going on around me.  I have a friend who is going through the most difficult time of her life.  In the past, I would try to make it better for her.  Now I understand that I can’t change the situation for her but the gift I can give is compassion and a safe place to feel her pain.  I can also offer her the Master Key system so that she can learn to be in control of her thoughts.  It doesn’t change the situation but changes how she chooses to “think” about it and “feel” about it.  The is the gift I’ve received over the past 14 weeks.

I wish all of you a year of growth, harmony and happiness.
