Week 11 – The Master Key Experience – The DOMINO EFFECT

 

cause and effect“It is well, however, to remember that while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect, in turn, becomes a cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create still other causes, so that when you put the Law of Attraction [The Law of Karma, or the Law of Cause and Effect] into operation, you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.”  Charles Haanel, The Master Key – Part Eleven

Consciousness is the ultimate Personal Responsibility Paradigm, calling into play every aspect of our being.  We recently had our basement flood.  What caused that? The failure of the builder 45 years ago to seal the foundation combined with ineffective drainage from the gutters.  We got to walk into observing the Law of Attraction/Law of Cause and Effect up front and personal playing out in our new home.  It played beautifully into Scroll III from The Greatest Salesman in the World: “I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.  I will persist until I succeed.”

One raindrop at a time, until the foundation was saturated along with the earth, and the Persistencewater pushed through, covering our floors and then leaching up into the walls, until they, too were saturated.

Nature instructs beautifully.

A cause, 45 years in the making, combining with other causes, until the breach in the walls occurred.

If this is true of the power of a raindrop, how much more so is it true of the power of our thoughts?  What effects am I unconsciously creating?  Am I being a powerful Gatekeeper of my Mind, or am I in the default mode, allowing access to negativity, doubt, fear, collective consciousness……

I get to choose.

And I master the tools, so that I choose wisely.

The Domino Effect of Thought:  Play it out to the end in your mind’s eye, and rejoice in the possibilities if you are the Master of your Mind. Or if you are not, then, at the least, prepare for what may occur, for unconscious creation obeys the same laws.

Week 10: The Master Key Experience – And Then The Rains Came….

 

flood-warning

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!  My husband and I just moved into our beautiful new home in Hayesville, North Carolina, in the middle of November. So many things about the house that I absolutely LOVE, and then there WAS that one thing that made me cringe.

The carpet in our daylight basement epitomized early 1980s rubber backed indoor/outdoor ugliness…probably the ugliest carpeting ever made by man.  I casually remarked to John that I really wanted to pull that out and replace it.  He said he’d rather install hardwood floors on the main level first. We were, and still, are unpacking.  Plenty of time.

And then the rains came.  8-10 inches in 12 hours.  John awoke several times that night. He told

me later that it sounded like some wizard had transported our home under a waterfall.  Now, John was raised in the Panhandle of Florida…Hurricane rains don’t faze him, but his storm did.  I awoke early on December 2, put Star’s leash on her and went down stairs to take her outside, and heard “Squish Squish Squish” under my feet as I hit the lower level.  I turned on the lights. The entire basement was flooded.  The carpet was saturated. I quickly went into the ACTION mode, finding a shop vac and working until 1AM the following morning sucking water out of the floors, all in all, over 30 gallons of water.  I found a large shop fan and turned in on high.  The next morning, I could still see my footprints on the carpeting when I walked across it.  I saw where the water had leached up the walls.  I assessed my losses…books, notes, my MKMMA Workbook, water damage to original art which we had not yet hung on the walls…..

Miraculously, none of my leather bound books were damaged, and I had boxes and boxes of them. The art seemed to be drying out ok, but the carpet……. I had to call in the professionals. Mildew was already forming, and Black Mold is NOT on my Bucket List!

thoughts-create-realityThen it hit me.  I laughed out loud.  Haanel, Week 10, tells us “Nothing happens without a definite cause.” Although I have felt pure gratitude throughout this entire experience, I also realized that I was grateful to be getting rid of the World’s Ugliest Carpeting.  BAM!!!!! If only I had been MORE SPECIFIC!!!!!!  Instead of water leaching through the foundation, creating a non-insurable water damage event, I should have told the Universe EXACTLY how I wanted us to be rid of this abomination of ugliness!!!!  There were many other options other than flooding through a saturated foundation!!!!  I’ve learned THAT lesson!!!!

The Restoration People tore out the carpeting, set up the dehumidifiers and fans, and treated all the surfaces to kill any mold and mildew present and to prevent any new from growing.  Once the place completely dries out, they’ll tear out the rubber padding, the linoleum, leaving me with clean, concrete floors.  I’ll make the space beautiful once again, more beautiful than before, for as I has already demonstrated this week, straight from Scroll III, “I persist until I succeed.”
