Week 7: The Master Key Experience Is for the BIRDS!

 

When we allow externals to influence us, to drive our lives, we crack. Living at effect instead of living at cause equals death. The body might hang around for decades, but the soul will have been buried deeply by The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda, and Captain Hindsight!!!!

A life of quiet despair …..unless……until……a knawing hunger for that something more, that calling long ignored, that desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves…..and lo and behold, we find ourselves embarking upon The Hero’s Journey. The Privilege of a LifetimeFirst Discovery:  Just who the heck are we?  Where am I going?  Where do I want to go?  Who do I want to take with me?  Why do I want to do this?  It’s too late for me….too late….but no.

The Soul fights for life, whispering that YOU are the gift….that your life is the only gift you give, and to live, you must give it.  To give it, you must live it.  But how? If there is enough love left in us to answer that call, we are compelled by an inner pressure that drives us toward life, towards living, and we embark upon the adventure of a lifetime.

If we are blessed and highly favored, we quickly find mentors and guides to assist us in our journey!  Those of us on the Great MKMMA Adventure have such guides in Mark and the Fabulous Davene, not to mention the rest of their team who dedicate themselves to drawing out of us the light we have so carefully hidden under a basket.

Can’t you just hear them talking two months ago?

decorah eagles1Mark J: ” Whaddaya think, Davene?  Will this chick ever fly?  I’d hate to see her become a Condor Cookie, but if we can’t eagles and chickspush her out of the nest, that’s what she’s destined to be!”

Davene:  “She’ll fly!  She’ll Fly!  With support, love, and training, those new peptides and pathways will overcome all that resistance we’re seeing.  Let’s give her the scholarship.  You know, that last itty bitty baby eaglegroup looked a little shaky as well, but they totally astounded us! Maybe this one will as well!”

Mark J:  “Yeah, you’re absolutely right!  That’s why I call you The FABULOUS Davene!  You’ve got enough love in you to hatch 3000 of these eaglets!”

And so I began the hard mental work of learning to THINK: Discipline. Habit. Love. Forgiveness. Concentration. Visualization.   Becoming an architect of words. Emulating Tesla’s great ability to conceive, construct, modify, improve, and perfect in the MIND before bringing it into the physical realm….Defining who I am.  Defining what I want. Giving myself permission to even WANT something!  Defining where I want to go.  The Old Blue Print has been Kicking and Screaming the entire way…….I simply say “Thank you for sharing.” and continue the Journey.

tweet flockFirst, I mistook a flock of blue birds as an invading army, then quickly realized that they were tweeting on over to the Eagle’s Nest to celebrate my arrival and the arrival of this entire cohort of Heroic Adventurers! They wanted to announce us to the world!   Inside, I whined., bitched, moaned, and complained. I had so successfully idealized isolation that the entire concept ofoldcatTWEETING was simply beneath my dignity!  Cats eat birds, after all.  Who wants to actually BE dinner!  What!!! It’s a REQUIREMENT?  OK. I’ll do it!

Face Book?  WHAT!!!  The Gateway to All Things EVIL in Cyberspace?  You’ve GOT to be KIDDING!   WHAT!!!  It’s a REQUIREMENT?  OK. I’ll do it!!  I am still unsuccessful at uploading contacts…….need a baby bird to come along and give me a hand with that!Big Bird

Then there was BLOG BIRD!  What the heck is a blog, anyway!  Why do I want to even READ one, let alone WRITE one. WHAT!! It’s a REQUIREMENT?  OK.  I’ll do it!!

LORDIE!!!  I thought I was learning to be an EAGLE!!!  THAT Thing looks like it’s mama bird kicked it out of the nest for being just tooo STRANGE!!!

[Oh……that was the OPINIONATOR again……    not much love in HIS World!!!!  YIKES!!!]

No One Succeeds Without a MASTERMIND!!!  MAJOR CONFRONTATION TIME!!!!  In my wonderfully English baby eagle master mindbaby eagle master mind-German-Irish Family, you either figured it out on your own, or your died trying.  Just might have something to do with arriving at this juncture at 61 instead of 21.  ALAS.  ENGAGE THE WORLD???

WHAT!!!! It’s a REQUIREMENT!!  OK!!!  I’ll do it!  And the Mastermind Alliance has been a source of wonderful encouragement, fun, joy, laughter, engagement, interaction, and adventure, and has made the journey lighter.

HMMMMMMMM. There must be a method to their madness!

Then came The Return of the READING BIRD!!! Movie Posters!  Shapes! Functional Book Marks! Recordings! Writing. READReading Cards. Reading The Master Keys. Reading The Greatest Salesman. Reading The Seven Laws of Mind. Reading Emerson. Reading The Law of Giving. Reading The Gal in the Glass.  Good thing I LOVE reading!!! phoenix_lgWHAT!!  I get to DO WHAT I LOVE!!!  Hmmmmmmm. Could part of the method of their madness be connecting actions to passion and purpose….the NEW BLUE PRINT RISES like a Phoenix from the Ashes!  THINKING mixed with FEELING leads to BELIEFS which result in ACTIONS which bring about RESULTS…and DIFFERENT RESULTS than would otherwise have been possible!   OH YEAH!!!!! They TOLD us about that at the very beginning!  I just didn’t have a frame for the reality of it until now.

Wonder what Mark J and The Fabulous Davene are saying now……….

Mark J:  “Well, Davene, look at how these baby birds have grown!  They are AMAZING!!!  Think it’s time to teach them to visualizing eagledomfly?”

Davene: “OH YES!!!  Spreading their wings and taking flight is the first step towards SOARING!!!  They’ve GOT TO FLY!  Let’s give them the Pre-Flight Pep Talk!”

Mark J:  “GREAT!  That’ll be the Week Seven Webinar….of course, if they don’t jump, we’ll have to push them outta the nest.”

life_is_a_promise_-_fulfill_itDavene: “Funny how that seems to work, Mark. The ones we have to push end up being the strongest. They soar the highest, fly the farthest.  Sorta makes me hope we have to push them all!”

Mark J: ” I just love these guys!”

Davene: “Yea.  So do I.  Let’s go see who’s ready to SOAR!”

Week 6: The Master Key Adventure – WATER

The moment Helen Keller realized the connection between the signs written onto her palm and all of creation.

I love the Master Key Experience!  This week, I felt like I was observing that magical moment in Helen Keller’s life when she ‘GOT IT’, when she realized that all of those touches repeatedly placed into her palm by Anne Sullivan actually were names of things in her world, and the gift of connecting with all of creation opened to her heart and mind. Lallah Rowe had such a moment this week.  This is her sharing of that experience:

MKMMA Week 6

The journey continues.

Some things are getting harder while others are getting easier. But we definitely have changes happening.

Keeping my schedule has been difficult this week. I have been just barely keeping my reading up.

Up till now I have not really done much with the shapes. It was just a sort of “OK so I am supposed to put a shape on my cards. Ho Hum.” Then things changed. I was driving down the street and there was a stop light and it was a red circle. Then I noticed that the street signs were all blue rectangles. Those are the colors and shapes for my PPNs. Without warning the whole world was reminding me of my PPNs! There were shapes and colors everywhere!

The double line on the road was yellow, the green trees were combinations of triangles, circles and squares jumped out at me. I felt like the physical universe was conspiring to make sure that I kept my goals in mind and followed my compass.

I’m still making notes on my book. This one will take quite some research but the outline is forming and my ideas of where and how to get meaningful research keep coming. I have a book that has been sitting there as an ebook for some years. Suddenly it has an ISBN number, a barcode and proper format for publishing. All that I still need to do is to tweak the cover a bit so that it all fits for the printing. Wow! My publishing company will be off and running this week and I have 5 more books waiting in the wings that I can just run through the 3 hour process of publishing!!

I realize that this is not a passive course that will magically turn me into something that I am not. I need DO things and I need to DO THEM NOW! The line “I can be what I will to be” is now changed to “I am what I will to be” I put this on a card and listed out the various attributes that I am determined to have. But I can’t just say I am brave and kind and competent, I have to do things that are brave and kind and competent. Rather than waiting for my brain to create peptides, I am trying to do the things that the person I intend to be would do. I think it is working.

My ultra conservative English husband is also very excited and is doing things on his end to make the publishing company go. An old friend decided out of the blue that I needed a Roku TV to do my research properly and it just arrived on my doorstep!

Through all of this I have had the flu and I am doing my reading with feeling in between coughing and sneezing. I worried that the depression of being sick might seep into the subby along with the words, but I think that forcing myself to feel the enthusiasm is getting me over the flu faster because I just really feel excited and happy when I read.

I really like scroll II. I have been practicing telling people silently that I love them and finding some reason or another to love things even when they have irritated me in the past. It feels good.

Health, Wealth Wisdom and Joy,
Lallah

Week 3: The Master Key Experience – Limbic Yoga

 
Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic

Reading, ‘Riting, ‘Rithmetic

What are the 3 Rs?

If you are of a certain era, the response is “Reading, ‘Riting, & ‘Rithmetic”, which clearly shows the need for more emphasis on Spelling.

In the REAL world, the 3 Rs are the fuel of that part of the brain responsible for decision making. The Limbic System IS that part of the “Inquiring Mind” that wants to know, and what it wants to know is this:

  1. What’s the RISK?
  2. What’s the REWARD potential?
  3. What’s the RATIO of Risk to Reward?

When we ramble through our lives unconsciously realizing that our Limbic risk-reward-ratioSystem is continually asking and answering these three questions, we become rigidly entrenched in the ‘status quo’, the way things ARE, regardless of what we say about wanting things to be different.

‘Conscious awareness of the power of the Limbic System allows us to begin to practice “Limbic Yoga”, a very advanced understanding which brings with it the strength, flexibility, and freedom to choose the direction our lives take.

Limbic Yoga takes daily discipline. Our brains are bio-chemical systems. The bio-chemistry creates a chemical desire for whatever it is fed. Here is the secret of limbering up the Limbic System. Feed your mind what you want it to create. In the Master Key Experience, we are continually linking cause and effect, training our brains to Think, Create, and Change, consciously, consistently, and effortlessly.

Note:  Effortless does not mean without work.  Just like Daniel in the Karate Kid, it is PRACTICE that entrains the subconscious mind. And not just practice, but CORRECT practice of the correct things.

 

You now have the Key to the Vault. It’s yours to use, or to cast aside. Are you in the game, or watching it from the sidelines.  This is YOUR Hero’s Journey. Take it.

You get the idea.  The interesting part of this is that many of the people who embark upon thisMKE-Coming-Soon-Final Hero’s Journey want to, in Joseph Campbell’s words, “Follow Their Bliss”…… The problem arises in that they do not know exactly what that bliss is.  Part of the discovery often is the revelation that the Success/Bliss Ladder is leaning up against the wrong wall. At first, this results in tears, in sadness. But then it happens. They discover their passion and purpose, and go for it, confident that nothing can stop them.

Week CW22: The Master Key Experience – Three GREAT Reasons to Find Out About the MKE

 

20121026_science_lists_c_embed_3Time to be blunt. Many of you have asked me to keep you informed on the next MKMMA Experience, so here are some great reasons to stay tuned.

Can you answer “NO” to the following questions?

Is that all there is?                  NO!

Have I found my purpose and passion?                        NO!

Is my Success Ladder up against the right wall?                              NO!

Am I at home in my skin?                   NO!

Is my future self my best friend?                        Hell No!

Do I find joy in simply being alive? Not really….

Is that all there is?             No.

But you can change that if you want to.

You are reading this because there is a voice deep within your heart, whispering to you…. “NO”.Make the Most of Yourself - EmersonThat’s your heart refusing to accept a life of quiet desperation. You are hearing the Herald’s Call to Adventure, crying out to be heard, to be seen, to be recognized, to be encouraged, to be developed, to be set free.

REASON #1: That voice from deep within your soul wants an opening to be found through which the real YOU can break through, break out, and dare to live the life you are destined to live. You are already on your Hero’s Journey, on the way to becoming the Hero of your own life, but in order to return with the treasure, you need mentors and Guides along the way.

REASON #2: A Personal Guide… Now That’s a GREAT reason to choose the Master Keys! You’ll not only have a one-on-one Guide [maybe even me!], but an entire team of people dedicated to you discovering you, and manifesting your life purpose and passion.

REASON #3: Discovering your Life Purpose and Passion. [I know. I know. You are asking yourself, “Life Purpose and Passion? Who the heck has time for THAT?” I hate to be the one telling you this, but that’s another great reason to choose the Master Key Experience.] The MEANING of life is to find your gift. The PURPOSE of life is to give it away. Therein lives your passion, that which breathes oxygen to your soul.

BONUS REASON: No one succeeds without an authentic Mastermind, which is NOT anything you have ever seen or experienced, regardless of who marketed that course to you. As a member, you’ll learn what an authentic Mastermind is, and how to put one together.

So be a VOICE, not a whisper. The MasterKey Experience e launches in 15 days. Scholarships are limited, so if you are ready to discover your greatness, and live into the dreams of your heart, then get yourself on the Early Bird List NOW!

AND, It only costs a $1.00 to reserve your spot once we launch.

See you in September!
