The Master Key Experience: Week C2 – Quicksand Quagmires Getting You Down?

 

quagmire-word-nerdDo you love your life? ALL of it? How about MOST of it?  Unfortunately, many people cannot answer YES to any of those questions.  Why is that?  Could it be that most people find themselves living out the expectations placed upon them by the systems in which they operate?

 

The Quicksand Quagmires of life:

  • Family Systems
  • Community Systems
  • Religious Systems
  • Employment Systems
  • Legal Systems
  • Political Systems
  • Government Systems

YIKES!!!! How can anyone successfully navigate all of that and live a life of passion and purpose?  There IS a lot to be said for duty, but personal responsibility is a separate creature from system responsibility. What does one do upon awakening and realizing their life is about someone ELSE’S expectations, purpose, and passion? What does one do upon awakening and seeing that their life is devoid of meaning? What does one do when they suddenly see their soul dying before them?

First, we stop. We cannot chart a new course if we do not know where we are on the map.  You youarehere7-2know exactly what I mean by this. All of us have been in some humongous mall looking for a specific store, feeling totally lost and clueless as to how to get there. Then, a miracle happens! We see a large MAP of the Mall!  First, we find the store, and then we search for that “X”, the one that says “YOU ARE HERE”.  It is only then we can successfully reach our objective.

Three years ago, I realized I was neck deep in Quicksand. All my accomplishments and achievements did not bring me joy. I was, and am, a happy person, because I CHOOSE Happiness [It’s good for my health!], but my life did not quicken my spirit, ignite my soul, or capture my imagination.

b405e1091eae0436036d306402903988I stumbled upon The Master Key Experience, and charted a course to a life of passion and purpose.  I was not very far off course, but that self-discovery course correction has made all the difference in the world. My life is fired by ENTHUSIASM for all that I now do. I released that which did not serve me. The beauty in this is that the service I render unto others became exponentially more powerful and effective as a result. Focusing on living an authentic life changes everything.

There was no magic wand waved turning my pumpkin life into a fabulous coach. There is a lot of effort required when you embark upon your Hero’s Journey. And I’m still on the path. New adventures open as present adventures end. Truly, my life is a miracle. And yours can be as well.

The Master Key Experience – Week C1 Life Changing Transitions

 

bs-stairway-to-heavenIt’s interesting the insights the Hero’s Journey gifts to the sojourner.  Last week, I received the ‘Death Watch’ call from my family. My mother, now in the 8th decade of her journey, is approaching death.  She suffers from Dementia, a terrible consciousness stealing process which takes down the body after it takes down the mind. Unable to swallow, her body has become skeletal. The sweetness of her soul still brightly shines. It’s a great gift to know that the essence of who you are, really, cannot be compromised by illness, trials, or anything else thrown in your path.  I am reminded of something Wayne Dyer often said.  When you squeeze an orange, you get orange juice.

What does all of THAT have to do with the Master Key Experience?

Everything.

We are saying good bye to someone we love and respect. Who she is can never be replaced. dotvital.com-fresh-orange-juiceShe is one of Nature’s Greatest Miracles, and for us, the special miracle of being a Mom.

The Law of Dual Substitution: We cannot think of two things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind, think about God. Jesus, the Master, said, resist not evil, meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.

I get to choose. I can think of ‘losing’ my mother, and go into depression and great sadness, or I can think about something else instead.  I can think of the many gifts she bestowed upon us throughout her life and ours. Out of her heart poured tens of thousands of loving-kindnesses to all she met, but especially to her children and her family. When I think on those, I smile, and I see the world as a beautiful, wonder-filled, total and completely astonishing place.  What a great gift.

The Law of Dual Thought: Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

heaven-gatewayI get to choose. I can be angry and sad that she is dying, or I can feel overwhelming Gratitude for the privilege of knowing her, loving her, and being loved by her. I can feel grief, or recognize the greater truth that she is an eternal being, and that presence in my life will continue, albeit in a difference manner. I can choose to feel happy for her that she is about to embark upon the greatest of all adventures: eternity.

In the Master Key Experience, we discover our authentic selves, the one that, when squeezed, emits the essential truths, characteristics, and values of who we are created to be.  We discover how to transform limiting habits and beliefs into powerful allies that propel us on the journey to our magnificence. We discover a brilliant light shining from our core that cannot be extinguished.  We discover and uncover. I am so thankful to continue to be on this Hero’s Journey.

Week 24: The Master Key Experience – 8 Amazing Results

 

storm-bald-eagleSMALLWhat a ride!  Self-Discovery blooming into self-reliance. Thinking, self-directed, fully awake, fully alive men and women.

Last September, those starting their Hero’s Journey were little eaglets, chirping in the nest high above the canyons of their minds, their hearts, and their lives. Now, they are launched from the nest, effortlessly soaring the uplifts and air currents which the universe brings to support their journeys into their magnificence.

What are some of the fruits of this journey?

Delight: I have discovered the ability to delight in the world around me. That little five year old squealing joyously with the exuberance only a five year old can know once annoyed the living daylights out of me. Now, I find myself smiling broadly, thoroughly enjoying what it is to be ‘five’.

Awareness:  I am the Observer, not the Opinionator, and as such, I delight in continually learning more and more and more about this wonderful world in which I live.

Effortlessness:  There is a difference between rewarding work and toil.  In the Garden, Adam tended the Garden. Once expelled from the Garden, he toiled, struggling to bring forth the harvest from the soil. The one was effortless co-creation. The other, drudgery. Effortless means the experience of accomplishing the objective is joy rather than toil.  I don’t know about you, but I’ll take joy!

Courage: We learn that all the riches in life are within us.  Following our bliss is our decision toSteve-Jobs-Courage-quote be alive to our purpose and passion, to be willing to do whatever it takes to make that unique contribution which is the expression of the Divine abiding in our hearts. Many hear the Herald’s Call to this Greatest of all Adventures.  Few ever find the courage to answer that call.  We did.

Gratitude:  HA!!!  I love this one!  Gratitude as CAUSE!!!  The more I see for which I consciously give thanks, the more there is in my life for which gratitude is the spontaneous response flowing forth from my heart.  And, just as an aside, it is impossible to be anxious or depressed when your heart is filled with gratitude.

Emotional Mastery: I’ve been called ‘annoyingly happy’.  To that, I smile and say ‘THANK YOU!’ [There’s that gratitude thing again!] I Choose Happy! It’s good for my health.  I, and only I, have the power to determine my emotional state.

You are FREE to Choose, But you are not FREE from the Consequence of your CHOICE

Responsible:  I am 100% Responsible for EVERYTHING in my life.  So, if I am happy, it’s my choice. If I am angry, it’s also my choice. If I don’t like what is happening in my world, or if I absolutely LOVE it, it is still my choice….. Out of taking this on, I also get

Freedom: Once I own that I am 100% responsible for everything in my life, I am set free from caring about the expectations others attempt to place upon me. It is the freedom to let my YES be YES, and my NO be NO.  It’s called having boundaries, and it sets your life up for limitlessness.

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 21: The Master Key Experience – Do You Have Authority?

 

Michaelangelo The Creation of Adam“Let us make man in our Image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the foul of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Gen 1:26

“And out of the ground, the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every foul of the air, and brought them unto Adam, to see what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the foul of the air, and to every beast of the field.” Gen 1:19-20a.

What’s in a name? Biblically, the name represents the nature, the spirit, the character, the Adam-naming-animals-by-Theophanes-at-Meteoracharacteristics, and the essence, in every way, of the thing. In giving man the power and authority to name ‘every beast of the field’, God gave the authority to define the very essence and meaning of that thing. This is one of two specific ways which man is made in the image of God.

Haanel echoes this. “The spirit of the thing is that thing….It becomes active through your recognition of it and its possibilities.”  The Master Keys, 20.1

The other is free will… the freedom to choose a course of action, a thought.

In The Master Keys, we master the Power to Name. We develop authority to consciously ‘name’ the qualities we desire in our lives, as well as the power to be at cause in their creation and manifestation.

For example, biochemically, fear and excitement generate the same response in the body. We have the opportunity to express our two divine rights: the freedom to choose and the freedom to name. My life experience arises from my living into being made in the Image of God. I choose to name that response excitement, and my life is a grand adventure. I choose to name that response fear, and my life is a reactionary nightmare. That’s the Power to Name.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;’  John 17:22

heart-in-hand-of-godAgain, Haanel follows Biblical truths. “The real secret of power is consciousness of power.” 21.1 “…the more conscious we become of our unity with the sources of all power, the greater will be our power to control and master every condition.” 21.5

We cannot claim our inheritance if we are unconscious of its existence. Even if we are conscious of our oneness with God, we cannot sow the seeds of that life unless we name it and claim it. If we do, we reap a bountiful harvest.

Question: What kinds of things exist in your life that you can transform by exercising your Power to Name? How would your life be different?
