Week CW21: My Master Key Experience – Resurrection


Slide12For two years, I’ve been writing about The Great MKMMA Adventure, and what an adventure it has been. The word which best describes it is Resurrection,

How did I come back from the dead? I answered the Herald’s Call, embarked upon my Hero’s Journey, and became the hero in my own life.

What was that Herald’s Call? It was restlessness deep within which gnawed at me relentlessly. For years, decades, I ignored it, until it seemed I would die if I did not break out into something….else… but exactly what that something else was or would be I could not seem to grasp.

And THAT, my friend, is the essence of why I picked up the gauntlet thrown down before me, Sword in the Stone 2and set out upon The Master Key Experience. As Gandalf once said, ‘All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.’, and I decided to journey into the abyss of my greatest fears and either vanquish them, or die trying.

Some would say that a 61 year young woman should accept ‘things’, but I said, ‘NO’. I’ve got another 50+years to live, and I wanted to LIVE those years, not sleep walk through them in Zombie-dom. What is it that makes my heart sing? I had to know.

Energy medicine: I’d studied it for almost 20 years, investing thousands of hours and dollars learning how to use the laws of energy to heal. I remember telling my husband after my first exposure to it “I think this is why I am here.”, but I did nothing with it. That was a life pattern. As a result of the Master Key Experience, I now have a practice, and clients who are experiencing event_101280752healing of conditions as varied as chicken pox, poison ivy, hiccups, liver cancer, depression, and PTSD….the possibilities are endless. AND, I also obtained my certification to teach and regularly teach classes. What really makes me laugh, though, is that on all the ‘personality tests’ I have ever taken, I am an EXTREME introvert. People who know those test results cannot figure out how much fun I am having as I make presentations introducing Pranic Healing and while teaching the workshop! It’s a BLAST!! I think it’s where my inner ‘Robin Williams’ gets to come out and play. Who knows! But it shows! And I love it!

Chronic Happiness: People who met me always thought that I was happy. That was the result of what is called ‘Home Training’ in the South. Courtesy involves smiling pleasantly, being kind in both action and demeanor, and thinking of others. In other words, I had ‘the training’. As a Reunitedresult of the Master Key Experience, I have burst out of Courtesy into Happiness! Happiness incessantly flows forth from my innermost being! JOY is a great place to live! How did this transpire? I mastered the tools and skills of being self-directed, and embraced my inherent power to decide what to do with the time I am given. I have the power to choose. So, I choose Happy! It’s good for my health.

I’ve given myself the gift of freely giving myself to others. There was always a “Danger, Will Robinson” gatekeeper between me and all the people in my life. That faithful, loyal Protector Robot now has a new job. As a result, more and more opportunities arise to share knowledge, skills, experience, and wisdom. One of those is as a Certified Master Guide in the #MasterKeyExperience. Empowering others to create the desires of their hearts brings tears of Joy to my eyes. I cannot express the richness of this blessing.

The Master Keys Experience saved my life by giving me the gift of discovering who I am and why I am here. The GIFT is possible because not just one person, but an entire team of people dedicated themselves to my discovering my life purpose and passion. They did not tell me who I am. They guided me, and then guided me further as I dared to give that Self a voice, and permission to be. It was a resurrection from a life of quiet desperation to being vibrantly alive.

I’ve invested well over $100,000 on self-help and professional development workshops, courses, books, etc…. Mention any of those trainers/programs, and my reply is “Been there. Done That. Bought the T-Shirt. Sold a few.” The Master Key Experience is different in these three important ways:
1. It is a journey of Self-Discovery – you ARE the Hero of Your Life! No one tells you what to think, or how to think.
2. You truly become “The DECIDER” for every aspect of your life. And you get to hang out with tons of other people who are the Deciders in their own lives. Personal Responsibility is a BLAST!
3. You have a personal Guide [maybe even me! I’m a Certified Master Guide!] and a team of people dedicated to your successful navigation and completion of your Hero’s Journey

Of course, there was a downside…..
1. Course Requirements to keep your Pay-It-Forward Scholarship included Twitter, Facebook, and blogging…….none of which I had ever done and none of which I ever wanted to do.
2. You’ll have to hit the RESET button on your life’s schedule. It’s does take time to do the work. How much time? About the equivalent of 1 week of time over a six month period.
3. Changing is hard work…hard mental work…and requires both commitment and dedication.

Today, I don’t consider ANY of those ‘downsides’, but if you are considering the #MasterKeyExperience for yourself, you might start out that way. I so hated the whole IDEA of the first one that I created a pseudonym for the first year….So when you see Valeska Harraud….that’s really me.

OH! One more thing. The Master Key Experience is not for sale at ANY PRICE. Last year’s members have already paid your way, IF YOU QUALIFY! To see if you do, you will have to invest $1. All candidates who qualify for a Pay-It-Forward Scholarships will have to meet requirements to maintain them. They are awarded on a first come, first qualified basis, so Hop on the list and

Week CW 19: The GREAT MKMMA Adventure – IT’S ALIVE!   


kuYppyTAhhhhhh. One of my favorite moments in film. Victor Frankenstein’s joyful proclamation over The Creature.

“It’s ALIVE!”  The look on the creature’s face is priceless.

Frankenstein is a resurrection story with a twist. Instead of one man, one woman, one child, passing through the veil of death into the great unknown of Eternity, Frankenstein is a composite of many men brought back from death into life, with another important distinction. Frankenstein had no soul. The Creature was but a shadow of what it means to be fully, completely, vibrantly alive. In that respect, he is the perfect representation of the condition of much of humanity aptly described by Thoreau: “Most men live lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.”

Is your song still in you?

One of the great gifts of the Master Key Experience is the writing of your heart’s song, the refining of it, and the development of the courage to sing it out, loudly, clearly, proclaiming to all of creation that

Are you brave enough to find YOUR Voice?

Are you brave enough to find YOUR Voice?

you have found your voice, and that your delight is in the expression of your unique life purpose and passion. It is no small undertaking, which is why the vast majority of humanity dies with their song still in them. It is your Hero’s Journey. It is taking the dare to live fully, to stand naked in the Garden, unashamed of who God created you to be, and to rejoice in the gift of your life.

Is your song still in you?

Listen carefully. It is softly playing somewhere in the distance, wafting to you on a gentle breeze. That sweet song, the words to which you can almost hear, is your Herald’s Call to the greatest adventure of your lifetime. It is to live the words of Gautama Buddha: “Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it”

What Verse Will You Contribute?

Week CW17 – The Great MKMMA Adventure – Then It Happens


king-arthur-and-the-holy-grailYou know what you want. You have answered the Herald’s Call to Adventure. You have seen the vision of the song of your heart. You have been faithful to the mundane, to the routines of the journey, to the habits that have kept you true to your path, that have guided you ever closer to your destiny. Apparent blockades and obstacles mean nothing to you.  You view them as opportunities to express your creativity and ingenuity. You actually perk up with playful curiosity now when you see one, knowing it is either a mirage or a chance to look at life from a new perspective, that whatever ‘IT’ is, it is there for your benefit.

Then it happens.

A wonderful something that is close to the desires of your heart, but not the perfect manifestation of it. You think, ‘WOW! This is fabulous!  It’s almost exactly what I’ve been envisioning! Maybe my vision was off.”, and you move forward to take ‘It” into your life.

Then it happens.

Roadblocks of a different kind. Delays. Lack of communication. Stonewalling. Feeling off the journeybalance, off your stride. More delays. What has been effortless now becomes a strain, difficult, and frustrating.

Then it happens.

You wake up. You recognize that you are ‘settling’ for less than the embodiment of your vision.  You choose to release “It”, turning away from that choice, that decision. You reconnect with the song of your heart.  Once again, life is effortless.  The Habit of Happiness permeates your world. And another door opens, leading to the exact manifestation of the vision of the song of your heart.  You realize that the Morning-MistUniverse lovingly allowed your first plans to fall apart.  You laugh out loud at the distraction which stole bounce in your step as you walked your daily path. This time, the roadblocks dissolve before your eyes, evaporating just as the morning mist dissolves in the light of the sun.  Everything comes together perfectly, effortlessly. Each morning, another idea comes to you as you sit in your Sanctuary, an idea that accelerates the process and moves you closer and closer to the desire of your heart.

You laugh at yourself and your world.  Life truly IS good when you are faithful to those mundane little routines that changed your life.  Thank God for the Master Key Experience.  There’s nothing like it.

Are you curious as to what those habits are that will bring you to the fulfillment of your life purpose and passion?  They are the Habits and skills of the Master Key Experience. The next journey begins in September.  You cannot buy it.  You CAN get on the ‘Short List’ for a Pay-It-Forward Scholarship!  If that sounds good to you, leave your name and email below and I’ll make sure you get a ticket to ride!  You’ll also receive a valuable workbook: The 7-Day Mental Diet!  You truly CAN Change the World in 7 Days!

See you in September!
