Week 22 The Tool Box Revealed

The meaning of life is to find your gift   The purpose of life is to give it away.

For the last two weeks we had an assignment with our Master Key course.  The assignment was to think on these very emotional feelings of Fear, Anger, Unworthiness, Guilt, and Hurt Feelings and find a way to use them as tools to expand our comfort zone.

My first thought was that it would be difficult to imagine or hard to process.  But as I continued each day to spend time with these feelings, I began to get a concept of what anger would feel like and look like.  A very strong feeling for me, as I shared in blog post last week.

2015-03-05_1146The other feelings: fear, unworthiness, guilt and hurt feelings,  I had not quite understood how to make them expand my comfort zone. This weeks webinar explained in detail how to make them comfort zone friendly.  And I had an “AH HA” moment.

“No need to overcome these feelings.  Instead attach a different thought and use them as tools”.

Use FEAR  as Energy, Concentration, Focus.  If we do the thing we fear, fear disappears.

Use Anger as Massive Energy to change, (the best revenge is living well) a power tool.

Use Unworthiness, as a way to keep on track with your goals. Be an observer.

Use Guilt, to validate good, and to know what is the right thing.  Good people feel bad, bad people feel good.

Hurt Feelings remind us how much we care and focus on what we want..

It is magic the way questions turn obstacles into benefits.  We must be willing to let go and embrace these new tools.  Ask the tough questions of yourself.  This exercise may take you out of your comfort zone, the same as it has for me.  Making the changes will be worth the effort and you are worth whatever it takes to become your own “best self”.

“I can be what I will to be”

I am whole perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy

 

 

Week 21 The Real Secret Of Power

Continuing with Haanel writings:  The real secret of power is consciousness of power.  To become conscious of this power is to become a “live wire“; it has the same effect as placing an ordinary wire in contact with a wire that is charged.  The Universal is the live wire.  It carries power sufficient to meet every situation which may arise in the life of every individual.  When the individual mind touches the Universal Mind it receives all the power it requires.

The next question that would come to mind would be, where do I find the Universal Mind to tap into that power?  The answer is in the silence.  It is all about silencing our mind, cleared of thought that is constantly running around in our heads.  Re-training the mind to get quiet so the Universal mind can release the power.

How do I silence the hurt feelings, unworthiness, anger, guilt and fear?

Be an observer and I…..

Use one of the 7 Laws of the Mind, relaxation.

Let’s think about anger for a minute.   Observe yourself, as I have; what do I look like?  I admit, I get red in the face, start to shake all over, my stomach gets upset and all I can think of is to strike back.  My mind locks up on my point of view.  My whole body gets into this angry frenzy.  I have given up my power to anger.  Not a good thing.

Now by observation, before all these symptoms arrive, I exercise control over the run-away feeling of anger.  It’s all about silencing my mind to tap into the power.  That already feels better to me.    Let’s take a deep breath together.    Much better now.

Week 20 Inspired

Quoting Haanel;

To become inspired means to get out of the

beaten path,

out of the rut,

because extraordinary results require extraordinary means.  

When we come into a recognition of the Unity of all things and

that the source of all power is within,

we tap the source of inspiration.

Inspiration is the art of self-realization;

the art of adjusting the individual mind to that of the Universal Mind; the art of attaching the

proper mechanism to the source of all power.

Inspiration comes from the Universal Mind, the source of all power.  But to become inspired is to look within and bring forth thoughts that create an ideal.  One ideal is, I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.  Bringing these words into conciousness is to proclaim them for ourselves.  Inspired words with extraordinary results when used I regularly.

Through this class with the Master Key I am learning to proclaim my uniqueness and master the skills needed to become a confident observer of my own behavior.  As I begin to emerge I see myself as a new person,

not judging, not criticizing myself or others,

I become whole and in harmony with the Universal Mind.

Week 19 The Power Of One

2014-12-18_1136Let’s just think for a moment about having one day.  In that day we have the courage to be who we want to be.  What would you do?

What is wrong with our world and how can we change it in a day? Each day is only one.  Each day is all we have to make the change for good.  One act of kindness, one hug, one smile can be all it takes to help another have a great day.

I just finished watching the movie “I AM”.  In this story Tom Shadyac shares about his bike accident and depression.  And he spoke about our self centered lives and how we are driven to have things.  Our competitiveness to be wealthy and have more stuff.

Then he continues on his journey to “I AM”.  He talks about what we do in one day.  How that one day can change everything for us.  Bring us to a place where we realize we need to be the courage we want to see.

As Mandino says “Live this day as if it is your last”. “Don’t waste today mourning yesterday’s misfortunes,  defeats, or aches of the heart.”  Also addressed is tomorrow.  “To waste tomorrow would be to worry about what is yet to come.  Why concern  yourself with problems that may never come to pass? ”

Each day is a priceless gift and needs to be celebrated with heart felt gratitude.  Take this day, hold it firmly and accomplish your purpose.  Excel at all that is given you to do.  Have confidence that this is your greatest moment.  Be aware of your POWER to bring change to our vast world.

 

I CAN BE WHAT I WILL TO BE

Week 18 What We Give Our Attention To Grows

“Haanel; Power depends upon consciousness of power; unless we use it, we shall lose it, and unless we are conscious of it, we cannot use it.  Cultivate the power of attention by practice.”

For the last couple of weeks in the Master Key we have been following a progression; a five point progression.

(1) First we log 3 gratitudes each day on 3 index cards.

(2) We relive a grateful moment in our day in writing on an index card.  We add cards everyday to this stack, read them each day and shuffle them after our read.

(3) Also included in the progression we look closely for 2 kindnesses. We can observe our kindness to others or see kindness in others.

We also do this each day. (4) Exercise of our bodies and (5) quietly sit for 20 minutes.

This Harvard Study by Shawn Achor a Ted talk below is a good explanation of what we are doing these past weeks in MKMMA.

This exercise has had a profound effect on my level of happiness. Each day I do the progression and give it my full attention.  The changes in my life have been very rewarding.  I am passing this along to you for you to experience it for yourself.            Much joy.
