Today I received this short article regarding vows. Written by MADISYN TAYLOR, one would think she had been following me around the house taking notes on my DMP, OG, Haanel and blueprint builder readings.
“A sacred vow, once spoken, becomes a part of your existence forevermore.
Speech is a vehicle for vows, but the sacred vows we speak are more than just words. When we make a promise, a subtle yet powerful shift takes place in our souls where intentions are housed. A vow is both a tool we employ in order to facilitate transformation within ourselves and an expression of will. Thus, to make an oath is to communicate to the universe and our deeper selves our commitment to the principles most important to us. Fulfilling a sacred vow–whether it is as complex as “’till death do us part” or as simple as “I promise”–challenges us, exercising our willpower and aiding personal growth.
When we speak a sacred vow out loud rather than reciting it in our minds or recording it on paper, our voices project our promises into the deepest reaches of the universe. It is important that we remember that a vow made with the sincerest of intentions has the power to carry on past our earthly lifetimes. A well-chosen vow encourages commitment and dedication. The presence or approval of a spiritual teacher is not necessary to success, as true oaths are a product of the heart.
A sacred vow, once spoken, becomes a part of your existence forevermore. Your view of the world around you may change, and your predominant thoughts and feelings will no doubt evolve with time, but the spirit in which your oaths were spoken will remain unaffected. It is up to you to determine how you will stay true to your vows while your inner- and outer-world existence is transformed. Your strength and character will inevitably be tested as circumstances make keeping promises increasingly challenging, but after you have shown yourself steadfast many times, your appreciation of the sanctity of vows will be cemented in your mind and soul.”
Our MKMMA goes far beyond our lifetimes, our children and grandchildren are watching us and they see the changes taking place. “I promise”, carries us into a better future for our families. As I make my daily promises, I effect those close to me. I plan to do my best.

There are seven laws of the mind but today I only want to talk about the Law of Subconscious. As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand-accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.
For about three years now my Daughter has been sick with Lyme disease. With her Lyme, she also has chemical sensitivities which are affected and complicated by mold. The biggest goal for the last couple of years has been to find a place for my Daughter and her Husband to live. The house needed to be sold as it was part of the problem for Ginny.
Here is what happened: I travel the back roads to the post office a couple days a week and I always look around at houses and property. Haanel says “What we are thinking brings us the things which we have created by our thought processes, whether consciously or unconsciously”. And there it was a property with good land and a small house that was in pretty good shape. The property had an old farm house on right side and a big lot on the left. A little under 2 acres close by my house and in an area we could probably build what she needed. Wow, I was excited, then I found out the price. It was much less than the area could probably bring for that property, so made an offer. And they accepted it. Now came the hard part…money. I was in the middle of a new build and a rehab at the same time and had committed all available finances to those projects. I did find the money to purchase the property thru a source I had used one other time.
My idea was to build a house for them with all the chemical free materials available, but that would take 8 months or more. Their idea was to find a trailer to put on the property and move as soon as possible. They are living in that trailer now and the house they were living in is sold. The little farm house rented in hours of the purchase, covering the payments.
What happened? The subconscious was working on the demand and it works constantly 24/7. I know this is EXACTLY what happened here with this property.
PS: In the 5 months since their move Ginny and Reuben look amazing.
Peace Love and Harmony
In our readings this week we are given an exercise to let go mentally. Haanel states ” We should seek the SILENCE frequently, power comes through repose; it is in the SILENCE that we can be still and when we are still, we can think, and thought is the secret of all attainment.”
When I first began to practice silence, it was very difficult for me. I am an active person, always moving and doing. If there is one more thing to do, I go after it.
In my daily time with the Lord, I would often walk around as I prayed. When sitting it was difficult to be still and pray. What I have learned recently is that I was having a one sided conversation with God. I did not give my higher power the chance to speak to me. In learning to be silent, the reward had been finding peace and a feeling of closeness with God.
It took me time to get to this place and I do not call it easy. I still work at getting the wiggles out before I start. Deep breathing and alternate nostril breathing calms me down. I make it a point as thoughts come in, let them flow thru on their journey to else where. Then I sit up tall in a straight chair, rest my hands on my lap and close my eyes. No moving, just sitting quietly. I was persistent and made it my intention to reach the quiet place.
Now that I have practiced and become better at the sit, I find that very silent place is my friend. A friend I visit often and enjoy. Give it a try, maybe you will find a new friend.

“Harmony in the world within means the ability to control our thoughts, and to determine for ourselves how any experience is to affect us.” A quote from the Master Keys class that I am now taking.
As we continue with our studies, I am keenly aware of the need to control my thoughts. When I am in an emotional state, upset because life has been unkind or unfair, I find it difficult to turn off the thoughts that consume me. I find those thoughts that keep me agitated not only effect me emotionally but physically too.
A couple of years ago right at Christmas time I experienced chest pains. We all know that is not a good thing. For me it was an early warning to get myself pulled back together and pay attention to what my body needs for better health. I was offered a class from the Hospital to better care for myself, and there it was….Meditation and exercise. Meditation, or controlling our thoughts was a large part of the Hospital class.
In the Master Key class we are learning skills to help us understand the importance of needing control to gain harmony of the world within. I plan to pay close attention in class and make the changes that will bring me into a peaceful place. To put into practice the exercises I am learning.
I highly recommend a book that I have read “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself” by Michael A Singer. In his book Michael takes you on a journey through the chapters, to show you there will be no more confusion, no more lack of empowerment and no more blaming others. You have the ability to find yourself and you have the ability to free yourself. You will know exactly what must be done, if you so choose.
Peace, Love, Harmony,
Promise, a pledge to do, bring about or provide. A promise, a declaration that one will do or refrain from doing something specified. In starting our class at MKMMA, we promise to do the assignments, to work on being self motivated and self directed.
The promise I have made here is to form new healthy habits of thought and life. To work diligently to train the subconscious mind. The mind is the master weaver, both of the interior garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance. The conscious mind becomes the responsible ruler and guardian of the subconscious mind. It is this training which can completely reverse conditions in my life.
I am excited to begin the process of change and embrace the power that will be released. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power. I promise to render such action, to be persistent and to achieve my purpose. I will concentrate my thoughts for 30 minutes daily upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become.
As I commit myself to eliminate hatred, envy, jealously, selfishness and cynicism by developing love for all humanity, I know that the negative attitude toward others will be replaced by love.
I always keep my promises.
