24th Week Master Key Exp.

wk-xtra1

I can’t believe we’re at the end of the class already.  Wow!  That time went really quick.  Well all time has been going really fast the past few years.  My Mom always said, the older you get the faster time goes.  Boy, is she right.  Although, I just cant see time going any faster.  It goes way to fast as it is.  I sure wish it would slow down some.

I just can’t believe its been over 6 months since we started the class & now its just about over.  Thinking back, that time went really fast.  Some times it seems that when you’re going through something, time goes slow or slower.  But looking back now, that time went really fast.  But I guess as you get older & have more responsibilities & more going on, that makes the time go faster too.  It just seems like I don’t have enough time to get everything done any more.  But I keep trying!

wk-xtra3

Any way, with this being the last week/class, I was kind of thinking there would be some big ending.  That everything would come together and I would have this big “ah ha” moment.  But it didn’t really end that way.  I’ve been saying all along that maybe there is something I’m just not getting or something I’m missing.  Well, I was thinking that maybe I’d get it or find that missing piece in this last chapter.

Sadly to say, I didn’t really.  Or at least I didn’t have that big “ah ha” moment I thought I might.  I’ve been thinking the same thing through this whole time.  I guess I have been getting what the chapters have been talking about.  And having some experience with the Master Keys(although I think it might have been called something else then, but same concept), I thought taking this class I’d have this really big “ah ha” moment or moments & really “get it”.  Although that didn’t really happen for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I have learned a good bit from this class.  But the things I learned are a little different then what I thought it would have been.  & it was a lot of repetition.  Although, maybe said or given to us in a different way.  I also think that the Master Keys needs to be updated/rewritten to today’s version or today’s English, to make it a little easier to understand.  I mean, its not in a foreign language or anything.  Its just written back a few centuries ago.  I think if its updated into today’s modern English, it would make it a little easier to understand.

Again, for this last chapter, it was basically a loose review of the whole course.  To think positive.  That we are creative, spiritual beings.  To think & search the “truth”.    That we bring into our lives what we think about.  That things are created in the mind before they’re created in the material world.

wk22

Again, I’ve had a little experience with these teachings before.  So, I’ve been putting them into practice, to think positive & think about that which we wish to create in our lives.  But as of yet(for the past 5 years or so), nothing really has happened.  So again, I don’t know if I’m missing something or if I’m not quite getting something or not quite understanding something.

I know all these little sayings I have here are true.   & I believe I understand what this whole class is about.  But I still feel like there’s something missing or that I’m not getting or understanding.  Either way, I’ll still keep searching, thinking & hoping that one day(hopefully soon) I either realize it or I come across it or I “get it” or understand it better.  So that I can apply it better & hopefully then things will start to happen as I wish them to happen.

I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts & commenting!  I am hoping to continue to post here.  & I hope you will keep in touch!

Wishing you a life of whatever your heart desires!   Happy journey!!!

23rd Week Master Key Exp.

wk23-2

Wow!  I can’t believe the class is almost over already.  I remember when it started & we were hit with a lot of work at the beginning.  I felt SO overwhelmed.  I guess I was thinking we’d ease into the work.  But nope.  It was like …. Bam!  here’s ALL the work you have to do for this week.  I felt like I was back in school again.

But as time went on & once I finally finished my DMP, got into more of a routine with the class work & knew what was expected, things started to settle down a little bit.  There’s still been a good bit of work but now I know what’s coming & what I need to do.  Which really makes it a little easier.

wk23

This week we learn that the “Law of Success” is “Service”.  & what we get is what we give.  & that the power is in creative thought.  Concentration develops spiritual power.  & spiritual power is the ultimate force in all existence.  If you are not going forward, you are going backward.  When something is sent out, something must be received.  Desire is the attractive force, which sets the current in motion.  & fear is what stops the current.  So we get what we give.

We enlarge our circle of friends by helping them or being of service to them.  The 1st law then is “Service”.  Which is built on integrity & justice.  Keep an open mind & reach out for the new & recognize opportunity.  Be interested in the race rather than the goal.  The pleasure is in the pursuit rather than in the possession.  To make yourself a “money magnet” you must first consider how to make money for other people.  Your greatest success will come as you are able to assist others.  What benefits one must benefit all.  Our greatest success will come when we recognize that it is just as essential to give as it is to get.

wk23-1

I know we’ve been studying & practicing this through the whole class.  But for some reason, I feel like there’s a piece or something still missing.  Or maybe there’s still something I’m just not getting, or getting yet.  Or something just not sinking in yet.  Hopefully I’ll find it or get it soon.

I hope you have a wonderful week & an awesome weekend!!!

 

 

22-A Week Master Key Exp.

wk22a

This week was what they call an “off” week.  There wasn’t a class webinar.  Although Mark still had a meeting & just went over somethings.  I hadn’t been receiving the emails to sign up for the class webinars the past several weeks.  Fortunately, I just found out there is a link in the training site.

However, they didn’t change the link for this past week.  I’m guessing since it was an “off” link.  So I had to wait until they put up the replay.  There wasn’t a read, workbook & notes for this week.  Although there was a printout they called the workbook.  It just went over what we’re to continue doing.  & there was a reading called “Self Reliance” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

wk-xtra3

Someone had told me that you can find each weeks lessons on youtube.com where someone is reading the “Read” part of the lesson.  I really like that.  I like to read it myself.  But I also like to listen to someone else reading it because some times some of the words or wording doesn’t make much sense to me.  But when someone else is reading it, some times it will make better sense to me.  Wish I knew about this sooner.  But better late then never, right?

Being this was an “off” week, I’m going to keep it short.  I hope you are having a great week.  & I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

22nd Week Master Key Exp.

wk22-2

I can’t believe its the end of February.  Or well, probably by the time I finish this it will be the beginning of March.  & I think we only have a few weeks of class left.  Wow, that really went fast.

I remember when we started the class how frazzled I was with all the work we had to do.  I really wasn’t expecting that.  I thought we’d ease into it a little slower.  I’m sure glad things have slowed down a little bit.  Well, the class work hasn’t really slowed down.  But its become more of a routine that I’m more used to now.  & Once I had my DMP finished, that really helped a lot.

wk21-4

This week the lesson starts with Knowledge being a priceless value.  & how everything is a certain vibration.  That when most of us are using this vibration we are unconscious of it & therefore we get undesirable results.  Change the rate of vibration and you’ll change the out come.

It goes into talking about how our thought controls every part of our bodies.  When we’re sad, we cry, without even thinking about it, it just happens.  When we’re hot, we start to sweat, again it just happens without us telling our bodies to do it.  When you get a cut or wound, the body heals itself.  This all happens unconsciously.

wk22

We shall always find the cause in the “world within”.  By changing the cause, we change the effect.  Every cell in your body is intelligent and will respond to our direction. The cells are all creators & will create the exact pattern which we give them.

For our exercise this week, we are to concentrate on Tennyson’s lines, which are, “Speak to Him, thou, for He hears & spirit with spirit can meet, Closer is He than breathing & nearer than hands and feet.” Then try to realize that when you do “Speak to Him” you are in touch with Omnipotence.

I hope you are having a great week & have an awesome weekend!

21st Week Master Key Exp.

wk21-2-2

Some times, some of the lessons confuse me a little.  It starts out talking about one thing but then ends with something totally different.  & other times I have no idea what they’re trying to say, so I get a little lost.  But usually, I can at least get a pretty good idea of what they’re trying to say.

Now that I’ve pretty much recovered from getting the flu twice, the car accident, the holidays & all the other craziness that’s been happening the past several months, I’m finally getting caught up on some of the things I’ve gotten behind in with the lessons.  There are only a couple things I have left to do to be completely caught up.  I’m pretty close!

wk21-5

This weeks lesson again talks about being one with the Universal Mind or Divine Mind & having consciousness of power.  To connect with the Universal Mind through a “live wire” as like an electrical(or charged) wire & to be conscious of this connection.  The more conscious we become of this unity with the source of all power, the greater our power will be to master & control every condition.

When we realize this we can then understand how we may bring ourselves any condition.  Because anything which is held for any length of time in our conscious eventually impresses the subconscious.  Which becomes a pattern that creative energy waves into the life & environment of the individual.

wk21-7

It goes on to say that our lives are conditions of our thoughts.  That like attracts like.  So if we hold an image & keep concentrating on it, that it will materialize.  But there has to be more to it than just that.  You can’t just think about something & like a genie it’ll appear.  There’s more to it than that.  Plus, it might take a while to happen, too.  As in my case.  I’ve been imagining I’d be making good money online for at least 4-5 years now.  Or that some how I’d come into a lot of money.  But so far, it hasn’t happened.

It says that you have to add in the desire, determination & emotions.  Which again I’ve done.  Because this is all part of the “picture” or your “image” of what you want.  It says if you don’t like the picture or parts of it, to change it or add things in.

wk21-1

For the exercise this week we are to concentrate on “Truth”.  See how things change in the lesson?  I mean, I can see a connection.  But you think the lesson would have talked more about “Truth”, right?  Oh well, I just go with it.  I’m still learning.  I hope you have a great week & weekend!!!

20th Week Master Key Exp.

p01

I hope everyone had a nice Valentines Day this Wednesday(for those in the US)!  & for everyone else I hope you still had a nice Wednesday!  & this Wednesday was also Ash Wednesday for Christians.  & I also found out that Easter falls on April 1st.  Which is April Fools Day here in the US.

I can’t believe its almost Easter & Spring already.  It seems like Christmas was only a couple weeks ago.  I still have some Xmas things I haven’t had a chance to get put away yet. Guess I better get on the ball!

wk20

This 20th week of Master Keys we are learning more about recognition and inspiration.  All great things come through recognition; the scepter of power is consciousness, and thought is its messenger, and this messenger is constantly molding the realities of the invisible world into the conditions and environments of your objective world.   The universal mind that is within you or is you will enable you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully!

wk20-4

Inspiration is the art of receiving and makes for all that is best in life; your business in life is to understand and command these invisible forces instead of letting them command and rule you.  Intention governs the attention, and without the attention you can secure only the results which every one else secures. That is, a supply equal to the demand.

We must “be” before we can “do” and we can “do” only to the extent to which we “are,” and so what we do will necessarily coincide with what we “are” and what we are depends upon what we “think.”

wk20-2

For the exercise we are to think about …  That if He is all in all you must be in Him! That He is Spirit and you are made in “His image and likeness” and that the only difference between His spirit and your spirit is one of degree, that a part must be the same in kind and quality as the whole.  And if we can realize this then we have found the secret of the power of creative thought.

I hope you have a fantastic week!

19th Week Master Key Training

wk19-1

We are on our 19th week with the Master Keys now.  I can’t believe it.  Time has gone SO fast(as I’ve mentioned before).  Now that the holidays are over we’ve settled into more of a routine with the course, I’m hoping to be able to really get into this & make it work.  We didn’t have a webinar this week.  They call it a week off.  But really its only a week off for them since they don’t have to do the webinar.  We still have to do this next lesson.  So it really isn’t a week off.

When the course started it seemed(well it didn’t seem) there was & still is a lot of work to do for the class.  But I think because the holidays were coming up & the prep & planning for those combined with all the class work & everything else, it just seemed a little overwhelming.  But now that the holidays are over(for now any way), we should have a little more time to get the work done.

wk19-3

I got a little behind, but little by little I’m starting to get caught up.  So that makes me feel a little better too.  & now that I’m finally over that nasty flu(it seemed to hang on forever) & I’m starting to get my strength back, that helps too.  Although, the flu had turned into a cold & so I’m trying to kick that now.  But I still feel better then when I had the flu.  & I ended up having the flu twice.  But I think thats because I didn’t fully get over it the first time.  I didn’t rest & recoup like I should have.  But now I know better!

wk19-2

In this weeks lesson it starts by saying how we think things are opposites & that they are 2 different entities.  But really they make up a whole.  To have one, say dark then the opposite of that is light.  But both make a whole, light & dark.  We also hear of how things are ever changing.  How if we stand in the middle of a big city & look around that 100 years ago those buildings & technology weren’t there then.  & most likely most if not all won’t be there in another 100 years.  & how different everything will be then.  & it all changes because of the minds that put into action what they once imagined.

For our exercise this week we are to concentrate.  Really concentrate & become so absorbed in the object of your thought that you are conscious of nothing else.  To think about things like how the earth is not flat nor is it stationary, the stars are not small specks of light, the sun does not more nor is the sky a dome.  Silent thought is after all, the mightiest agent in human affairs.

I hope your having a great week!

18th Week Master Key Training

wk18-4

So, we’re into the beginning of February already.  Time just flies(as I’ve mentioned before).  It seems like Christmas was just a  week or 2 ago.  Lent begins in another week & a half.  Then about 6 weeks later is Easter, already.  & Easter always reminds me of Spring.  So we’re not to far off from Spring & warmer weather.

Although, I’m still holding out hope that we’ll get a big snow fall.  I just love when we get a couple/few feet of snow & it closes everything down.  It SO nice to be able to stay in your pj’s all day & not have to worry about going out anywhere.  But we haven’t had a big snow fall for a long time.  At least 7-8 years or more.  I think the most snow we’ve gotten at a time is a few inches.  Maybe 3-4 inches.  So we probably won’t get anything to big.   But even if we did, it would probably warm up in the next day or 2 & melt it any way.

wk18-2

Yesterday it rained ALL day & evening.  If it would have been just a little colder we would have gotten a good bit of snow.  But it didn’t change over to snow until it was just about done, until the line of precip was almost past us.  So we barely even got a coating of snow. Although there were some pretty big snowflakes at times.  But they’d melt as soon as they hit the ground from all the rain.

This week we are learning about growth.  & in order to grow we must obtain what is essential for our growth.  To receive only as we give, conditions reciprocal action.   Thought is the energy which the law of attraction is brought into operation, which eventually manifests in abundance.   The use of this power depends upon attention; the degree of attention determines our capacity for the acquirement of knowledge which is another name for power.

wk18-5

 

We are to concentrate on our power to create, seek insight, perception & try to find a logical basis for the faith in us.  That no effect can be produced until the seed is sown & the fruit will depend on the nature of the seed, so the results will depend on our perception of the law in the mighty domain of causation.  We also move to the 5th scroll now that we are starting a new month.

I hope you’re having a great week!

17th Week Master Key Training(Hero’s Journey)

wk17-HJ

I just can’t believe its almost the end of January already & how fast time goes now.  A few years ago I was thinking how fast time was going then.  But now its going even faster.  I remember back when I was in school, how the time would just drag on & on.  Gosh, I wish time would drag on & on now.  🙂  I keep thinking time can’t go any faster.  & then it does.

I finally feel like this flu/cold thing is finally starting to go away.  & I’m slowly starting to feel better & get my strength back.  Its been since about the end of Nov/beginning of Dec when I first got sick.  I barely got over that & I came down with it all over again.  & I guess as you get older it takes a little more time to bounce back from being sick twice in a row.

My very kind guide(Cheryl) sent me some packets to help boost my immune system & help me to start feeling better.  I’m not positive, but I think it might be helping.  But, I also started eating a little better.  Not that I eat junk all of the time.  But with the holidays & everything going on, I wasn’t eating as healthy as I should have.  & not feeling good, I just didn’t have the energy to cook.  Plus, I don’t get much sleep at night(maybe 3-4 hours).  So recently since I got sick again, I started putting some things aside & getting a little more sleep/rest, too.  So I think maybe a combination of all of that, is finally helping me to get better.

wk17-HJ2

I should have known I can only push my body so far before it breaks down.  With not getting much sleep, not eating right & so much going on & with the flu so wide spread, I should have taken a step back & did those things before.

But with the holidays so close & I hadn’t gotten any gifts yet & the work for this class & all the others things going on I had to put my attention to, I just pushed myself to much. I figured I’d slow down after the holidays.  But it was to late then, I got sick all over again. But, now I finally feel like I’m on my way back to being myself again.

This week I thought we would be on Lesson 18.  But instead, we are still on Lesson 17.  But another part of it called the Hero’s Journey”.  Which is our own journey to greatness.  To be a “Hero”.  Not in the sense that we have to go running into a burning building to see if we can save someone.  But to be our own “Hero” by having the courage to do what it takes, to become what or who we want.

We were to review certain past chapters & then one of our choosing.  & of course, continue with the other usual things we’ve been doing(index cards, sits, readings of Og, BPB, DMP & lessons, etc.).  We also learned that part of us must die(our old self/our old blue print) to be reborn into becoming who we want to be.  Kind of like a caterpillar that grows wings, so it then can fly.

Hoping that you will be your own “Hero” on your journey through life!

17th Week Master Key Training

wk17-2

So, its mid January, half way through the first month of the new year.   & we finally have some snow, yay!  I love snow.  But I hate the cold.  I know that probably doesn’t make sense.  Maybe if I put it this way … I love watching the snow from inside.  The blanket of white brightens up the gray, gloomy days of winter.  Only thing is, if we get a bright sunny day, its blinding with the sun reflecting off the snow.

The past 8-10 years or so we really haven’t gotten much snow.  When we used to get snow from Nov./Dec. & you didn’t see a blade of grass until the end of March or April.  This is the first year we’ve gotten a decent bit of snow.  But we get several inches then it warms up a couple days later & it melts.  But we’ve had some really cold weather the past month.  Temps in the teens & single digits.  It was -5 the other night.  But then we had a couple days that were in the upper 50’s & 60’s too.  Crazy weather!!!

wk17-1

The past couple months have seemed like one thing after another kept happening.  They say when it rains it pours.  Well, it was a torrential down pour.  First, I got a nasty flu.  Then a couple days before Christmas, a lady hit into my car with her car.  We were both going the same direction.  She was beside me, to my left.  She said she didn’t see me & was coming into my lane.  & she hit right into me, pushing me up over the curb.  Thankfully, it wasn’t all that bad.  Just some dents & scratches on the drivers side.

I started feeling better.  But then I got another bad flu.  Which I’m still getting over.  We had some really cold weather & had gotten some ice that encased my whole car.  So I missed some really important appointments.  And there were quite a few other things that happened too.  But, to much to go into now.   Its just been one thing after another after another.  I guess it could be worse.  But, I sure hope things start turning around & getting better real soon.

From Mark’s Hugs Video

We were asked to share the link to the video of Mark giving out hugs for our success of all the “Kindness” we posted in our group.  They were posts for last week for “kindness” that we either gave or saw.  We were told that if we posted 4,000 posts, Mark would go & give 100 hugs to strangers.  Well we over doubled that.  Wooo hooo!  Way to go class!!!  There were over 8,000 posts as of 5:00 pm Saturday.   So if you’d like, you can check out the Hugs Video here ….  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdubjsNiiak&feature=youtu.be

This week the lesson was mainly about concentration & consciousness.  A couple key points were …  Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical value.  & Desire added to concentration will wrench any secret from nature.  For the exercise were to concentrate on the method in the lesson.  To remember that power comes through repose.  & to concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact.

I hope your week is going good.  & you have a wonderful weekend!!!
