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.

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.

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.

Week 17: The Master Key Experience – Fool’s Gold or Gold?

 

Fools Gold or GoldAre you filling your life with Fool’s Gold or Gold? Both Fool’s Gold and Gold are shiny and bright.  Both are beautiful, catching the eye and quickening the spirit. Both have caused men to sacrifice all that they have in order to attain them. Both cause men to mine the deepest parts of their hearts and lives. Both have caused murder and mayhem, laying waste to entire cities. One serves you, and all of creation.

The other serves only itself.

I can hear you already. What!?! Everyone can recognize the difference between Fool’s Gold and Gold!  Are you crazy? Murder? Laying waste entire cities?  Did you drink the Kool-Aid?

If I were really talking about the minerals, those questions would be reasonable. When you are on the Hero’s Journey, the journey to the center of your heart and soul, being able to discern between ‘fool’s gold’ and ‘gold’ defines your very life.

What is it you love?

Power?

Or the value you can bring to the world as an effect of being powerful?

Status?

Or the impact you create as an effect of being influential?

Position?

Or the ability to be a part of transforming entire systems as an effect of embodying authentic authority?

Wealth?

Or being an economic powerhouse as an effect of using the energy of money to create income streams for countless others?

Fame and Glory?

Or the respect you have earned as an effect of bringing value to the world through your life’s purpose and passion?

Fool’s Gold cannot satisfy your soul. Symbols of truth are very different from living the truth of your destiny. You and you alone, have the power to choose which you bring into your life. 

Which do you choose?

I chose Fool’s Gold for a long time, squandering over 30 years of my life leaning behind_the_mask_by_violins_and_violence-d3cnftxmy ‘success ladder’ against the wrong wall, following what others said was important. It might have been important to them, but it was not important to me.  Fool’s gold could not satisfy the longings of my heart. Depression, sadness, and listlessness are its fruit.

I choose Gold. It’s really so much easier than you think. Make a list of all the things you do each day. Make a list of all that brings you joy. Compare the lists. Adjust accordingly.  Peace, Joy, and Happiness are its fruit.

 

The MasterKey Experience creates the space for you to give yourself permission to discover your life purpose and passion, and to live into your greatness.  It gave me permission to sing a new song, and taught me to dance to the joy welling up from my heart.

It can do that for you.

I hope you dance.

Week 13: The Master Key Experience – The HABITuator!

 

Habituator 2Meet The Habituator! 

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

 

free-superhero-clipart-aTqe8j6pcFaster than a speeding Thought!

titanic-elvergudito

More Powerful than Complacency!

dudley_doright_horse

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!
