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!

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!!!

 

 

16th Week Master Key Training

So we’re over half way through the class now.  Gosh, that time went really fast.  I’m still a little behind but slowly catching up.  I’m caught up with the lessons & have done most of the reads, sits, index cards, etc.  But I still haven’t had a chance to make my movie poster/vision board.  Or put a shape on the gratitude cards yet.  & I’m a few days behind on adding gratitude cards.

This week we’re to do & see acts of kindness, without getting caught or others knowing, & we’re to post them in the Mastermind group.  Although, not getting caught isn’t always easy.  If we get to 4,000 comments of kindness then Mark will go out & hug a bunch of people he doesn’t know.  If we double that, he’ll double the amount of hugs.  About half way through, there are A LOT of comments there already.  We’re supposed to add at least 1 comment there a day.

p155

The other day I was at Aldi’s.  Its a discount grocery store here.  You have to bring your own bags or buy them at the store.  I was in line to check out & a lady with a full cart of groceries was in front of me putting her items up on the belt to be checked out.  I noticed she had her arm in a sling & was taking 1 item at a time out.  So I just started helping her.  I told her that I’d just put it all up for her because she looked really tired.

I asked her what happened to her arm.  She said she just had her shoulder replaced.  Ouch!  The check out lady scanned her items & placed them all back into another cart singly since she didn’t have any bags.  I only had a couple things, so I checked out pretty quick.   When I walked outside to put my things into my car, I seen her at her car again taking 1 item at a time & putting it into her trunk.  So I went over & helped again.

p156

She had  some reusable bags in her trunk so.  I put the groceries into those for her.  Then I took her cart back up for her.  She kept thanking me & saying “bless you”.  She was really sweet.  It probably only took maybe 15 minutes of my time.  But I felt SO good after helping her.  This isn’t a 1 time thing for me.  I always try to help when I can.  So this kindness” week fits right in for me.

This week we learn in the reading that the power to create depends upon 3 steps, idealization, visualization & materialization, all spiritual powers.  That thought precedes & determines our action.  To control thought is to control circumstances, conditions, environment, and destiny.  So it goes back to the saying, what the mind conceives & believes, it can achieve.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

& Remember, its kindness week.  Be kind!

15th Week Master Key Training

wk15-1

Its back to a regular schedule or routine now that the holidays are over.  Some how I missed a week.  I thought we were on the 14th week.  But we’re actually on the 15th week.  I think I missed the week between Christmas & New Years.  Since we didn’t have a class webinar that week & I was sick(still am), I think it threw me all off.

The past few weeks has been exceptionally cold/freezing here.  But we haven’t gotten much snow.  Only a couple inches the past few weeks.  I think its been to cold to snow.  Quite a few days were just in the single digits, going below 0 at night.  Most days have been in the lower to mid teens & around 0 at night.  There were a couple storms that just missed us.  That seems to be the case here the past 7-8 years or so.

p120-1

I’ve been wanting a BIG snow(a foot or 2 of snow).  I just love when everything shuts down for a day or 2.  When you can stay in your pj’s & not have to worry about going out(hibernate) for a couple days.  I could just sit & watch the snow fall for hours(if I had the time).  Its just so peaceful & pretty.  I love the blanket of white over everything.  I think it brightens it up outside.  & it makes everything less noisy.  Until the plows come around.

We haven’t gotten much snow the past 7-8 years or more.  It seems it either just barely misses us or its just a few degrees above freezing so we get rain instead(hate when that happens).  But the past few weeks have been extremely cold here.  When its that cold the clouds don’t hold moisture like when its warmer.

I hope your holidays were very nice!  I can’t believe they’re all over with now.  The last few months have gone SO fast.  As they usually do any more.  All the decorating, planning, prep, etc.  & Christmas day itself just flies by.  So now its time to take all the decorations down & get packed & put away until next year.  I probably leave my tree & decorations up a little longer then most, since my b-day is a week after New Years.  So I like to leave everything up until after that.

Having to take down all the decorations is always a depressing time for me, since I still love the holidays, especially Christmas.  I just love all the lights & decorations & what a magical time it seems to be.  & I love it even more when we get/or have some snow for Christmas(like we did this year).  Just makes it seem more like Christmas, for some reason.

wk15-2

For this week we are to think more about harmony.  And becoming more in harmony with the natural laws.  I have a general idea of what harmony is.  But to be sure I looked it up just to see if I could get a better understanding of it.  First I kept seeing harmony as in musical chords.  But as I looked further, its definition is the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.  Which still really doesn’t explain it to clearly.  I looked at the synonyms & it has, balance, symmetry, peaceful & flowing.  Those help make it a little more clear & understandable.

For the exercise we are to concentrate on “Insight”.  It means to have or get an accurate & deep understanding of someone or something.   It says to dwell on the fact that knowledge doesn’t apply itself.  But I think we already know that.  That the way to get ourselves to apply the knowledge is with a determined conscious effort.

I hope your having a great week!  & have a fabulous weekend!
