Week 3 Control Our Thoughts

 

“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,

Week 25 The Advantages Of Meditation

 

2014-12-18_1136

From the first day in the Master Key adventure I began to meditate.

For a week I worked to secure full control of my physical being.  My favorite place to get quiet is in nature, so I chose the back porch. That proved to be somewhat of a challenge on the very cold days of winter but the sunshine made it bearable and snuggled up under a warm blanket made it just right.  There on the porch, I would sit for 30 minutes.

The second week I was to inhibit all thought.  This gave me control over all thoughts of care, worry and fear, and enables me to entertain only the kind of thoughts I desire.  For me this started out slowly as there were many thoughts and I worked at clearing the mind every few minutes.  As the week progressed, I did gain control enough to see improvement.  Each week gave me more confidence that meditation would work as I persisted.

I am now in week 25 of this process and I can say with a certainty that meditation is a wonderful place of peace and happiness.  I have experienced reduced stress, a greater self awareness, and I have an increase of compassion for those around me.

My family experiences the “new me”.  My friends look at me and seem to be thinking, “what’s changed”?

There have been other changes that I have noticed;  increased focus and mindfulness of all that is around me.  It’s like seeing everything in 3D for the first time.

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