Week 23: The Master Key Experience – The ONE Thing

 

The keel of your ship of life is one thing, and one thing only.  What is that one thing?  How do you find it? How do you know you have ‘found it’?  Can you live with your choice, your decision, your discovery?  What drives you?

GREAT!  One thing….. what the heck!  How do we every figure it out?

What do you fear?  THAT is your one thing, your compass, the keel that keeps the ship of your life on course.  Do you dare to look at it? To own it?  To make it your own?

Week 13: The Master Key Experience – The HABITuator!

 

Habituator 2Meet The Habituator! 

When THREATS are Near, the HABITUATOR APPEARS!!!!

More Powerful than Complacency!

Able to Smack Down the Old Blue Print with a Single SWAT!!

 

This embodiment of Power & Authority did not start out this way!  In Fact, She Looked more like THIS!!!  Solidly in the BASICS – Facebook, Twitter, The Alliances, Blogging, Webbies, Paying it Forward…… PERFECTLY COMFORTABLE with the PROGRESSIONS and PROCESS, and Perfectly Positioned to Quit!

416807-b4 the weight was lostMore like one of The Incredibles!  Powerful beyond measure until seduced by complacency   arising out of success!  Choosing to lay aside his Greatness, his Super Powers, as all the Evil Villains, especially the Old Blue Print, were VANQUISHED!!

What forces cause you to lay aside your super powers?  Your Work?  Your Day Job?  Your Family and Friends?  The Business of Life, especially during the Holidays?

 What are those things, REALLY?

All those EXTERNALS pressing into our hearts from the outside are really the Weapons of the Old Blue Print, slyly whispering into your heart that you’ve done GREAT!! You can just relax…take a day off….. ‘Yes… sadly, it’s true….Success can lay the foundation for future failure, for refusing the Call to Your GREATNESS, for Refusing the Herald’s Call.

For me, Denying my Truth would mean Spiritual Suicide

The HabituatorSo I THANK GOD for The HABITuator!!!!  His Persistent Pursuit of His Passion and Purpose Perpetuates Perfection!!!  Instead of resting on Yesterday’s Laurels or Allowing “Life” to be a distraction, The HABITuator presses forward, honing the tools of Self-Mastery, ENTHUSIASTICALLY moving toward his Magnificence!!!!

 

So just what does all this have to do with how I have kept The Master Keys alive and vibrant in my life?

Everything.

I often tell people ‘It’s my job to keep myself amused.”

How can I keep the Sit, the Cards, my DMP, the 7-Day Mental Diet, Masterminding with others in the course, mixing it up to create a new, more effective combination SO THAT I keep this fresh, creating an environment for digging deeper, soaring higher, and discovering deeper truths to guide and direct my path?

Fidelity to the exercises.  Fidelity to the details.  Everything in this work is here for a reason. shapesEven if I don’t understand it, I understand the results I see from doing it.

 

Think about that.

 

What if your life, or the life of someone you love, depended upon your precision and persistence, upon your understanding, upon you doing everything you know to do to make ‘IT’ work, to cause all the pieces to come together?

 

Sometimes in life, that is exactly what happens!  If you were a part of an expedition to climb Mt. Everest, your life would , literally, be in the hands of the Sherpas who (1) know the conditions; (2) insure that every Provision needed is supplied; and (3) are masters of their trade, able to adapt to changing conditions in the blink of an eye.  In other words, their HABITS become the actions that create the environment for you, the man or woman preparing the ascent, to be able to succeed.

Another way of looking at it is that The Habituator is like unto everything that you are doing in the Master Keys to reap the rewards of the progressions created for you…. It’s SUBBY FOOD!!!!  And since both the mind and the body need to be nourished daily, you daily get to choose what enters therein.

landscapes-volcanoes-the-lord-of-the-rings-mordor-mount-doom-HD-WallpapersIt’s your Hero’s Journey to your Greatness. 

It’s the mountain that you must ascend

in order to become all that you are created to be.

That’s how it’s been for me.

And I have to tell you, living as “the Habituator” is not always easy, but it is fascinatingly effortless!!!! This November, my husband and I moved our home….this was 3 months after moving our business!  Two moves in 4 months.  No internet at our home for 5 weeks. Long hours. Audits. Mental Health Crises lasting weeks in three of the families we serve. Our daylight basement flooding through the foundation from torrential rains early in December.

It would have been EASY to ‘relax’, to cut myself some slack….to skip some of the work.  I could not do so, and look at that Gal in the Glass, and know that in that day, I gave my life my best.

The few moments spent each day on this new habit is a small price to pay for the happiness and success that is mine.

It’s a small price to pay for the Happiness and Success that is your reward for your faithfulness to continuing to answer the Herald’s Call, the call to your Greatness.

So, it’s up to you.

Habituator 3In the time ahead, you can choose to be like one of The Incredibles, or like “The Habituator!!  The fork in the road lies before you.

Choose Wisely. Choose Well!

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.

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?

What Verse Will You Contribute?

If giving your heart and soul to the song of your life quickens your spirit, if finding your voice heightens your awareness, if the possibility of writing a verse in the great play of creation captures your imagination, then leave your name and email below. The Master Key Experience begins in September. There are Pay-It-Forward Scholarships available, and I’ll see to it that you are on the short list! Until then, you’ll get a head start of writing your life’s song with the 7-Day Mental Diet! It’s a great way to begin to sing your song.

Week C6: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Homicidal to Happy in 7 Minutes Flat 

 

s-JACK-NICHOLSON-300x200The last fortnight has been quite the experience. We had to complete a major project which required our complete attention. We worked 18 hour days, every day, for two weeks to get it done: manual checklists versus computer generated checklists, and reconciling the two.  More fun than I know how to explain.  On one of those 2 o’clock in the morning marathons [and there was an entire fortnight of them], I became so frustrated that I actually declared to my husband that if I could get my hands on a certain someone, I just might kill her.

In that same moment, my eyes fell upon a 7 inch high stack of 3×5 cards. I stopped. I became the observer of my life once again.

I picked up the cards, and started reading them.  Cards filled with Gratitude for sweet moments Cardsin life; Gratitude for surprises; Reminders of accomplishments….tools given in the Master Keys….tools that transform, if and when you use them. I began to laugh at myself. Tears filled my eyes as I read them aloud: Card after card after card filled with life, love, thankfulness, triumphs, joys, and images of the life I have built out of the dreams and desires of my heart using the skills given to me in this course.  Homicidal to Happy in 7 Minutes Flat!  Not a bad turn around!  So that night, one of my gratitudes written down on a 3×5 card was this:

“I am so thankful for the MKMMA Experience and for the blessing of sharing it with others. “

If you want the power to do a 180 degree turnaround and totally change your reality, leave your name and email below.  The class starts in September.  Pay-It-Forward Scholarships are ready for the taking.  I’ll make sure you are notified so that you can take yours!

Happiness is Yours to Choose, IF you have the skills to choose it.

Happiness is Yours to Choose, IF you have the skills to choose it.

Peace, and Joy, and Love IS the journey. Make it yours.
