Week 12: The Master Key Experience – The Anarchist





All these wonderful seasons of going within and glowing without, and I’m talking Politics?

Well, not really. All of the Primaries for whatever party is vying for dominance really bore me. What I’m talking about is this week’s meditation, where we are directed to ‘realize your unity with omnipotence’.  As the spray of a wave crashing upon the rocks contains within it the entire ocean, so do we, contain within ourselves, the exact nature of God.




“Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness” [Genesis 1:26]

“Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.’ [Genesis 2:7]

“The Father and I are One.” [John10:30]




Why did God create us in this manner, breathing His Spirit into us to enliven us?  Could it be so that we would be able to act upon creation, to be a steward of it, and to create in the physical realm…to have dominion over our world?

Dominion requires personal responsibility, and consciousness.

It also requires reverence and respect for all that has been and is being created.

AND, probably most important, the prerequisite for Dominion over the world is Dominion over the self…..something you can attain through The Master Keys.

The Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice

This takes me back to Anarchy.

If I and the Father are one, and if you and the Father are one, it stands to reason that you and I are one.  Could this be the reason for the universality of The Golden Rule?

If we are one, then anything and everything that I do unto you, I first do unto me.  In pondering these things over the years, I have come to believe that when the hearts of men are restored to their true nature, they will see that they, themselves, are sacred, and worthy of honor and respect, of kindness, and love.  They will also see that all others are as well, and, dare I say it, that all of creation is Holy.  With this degree of clarity of thought and understanding, is there a need for one man or institution to lord it over another?  I think not.  Thus, I am an Anarchist.

Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me.

Week One: Master Key Experience – The One-Two Power Punch!


first_say_to-57090The courageous heroes who embarked upon their Hero’s Journey into their Greatness were given an assignment this week: Write the rough draft of your Definite Major Purpose.  It’s the declaration of your Dharma, your passion and purpose. It’s the answer to the question, “What do I want?”

So what differentiates those who ask this question, and live lives of quiet desperation, and those who ask this question, and live lives joyfully expressing their unique gifts as they powerfully impact their communities and the world?

The One-Two Power Punch!  Thought and Habit.

Before we establish a habit, we must think!  In 1.4, Haanel declares  “…we must ‘be’ 6fqeq9before we can ‘do’, and we can ‘do’ only to the extent which we ‘are’, and what we ‘are’ depends upon what we ‘think’.”

Thought is the beginning point of everything in all of creation. Thought starts a concept down the path to manifestation.

But thought is not enough.  We’ve got to follow that first strike against mediocrity with the second strike which the Wizard of Og defines as the foundation to all success:  Habit.  In Scroll One, he declares “In Truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure.”  Therefore, a key to success is to “form good habits and become their slave.”  We strengthen and refine our habit muscle by driving bad habits from our lives and replacing them with habits that bring us closer to success.  Of course, in order to know which habits must go, and which habits are to replace those that go, we must, first, think.

Mastering the One-Two Power Punch builds a solid foundation upon which we build the life that arises from listening to the song of our hearts.

What do I want?

Listen to your heartFor almost everyone in the Master Keys, this is the first time they have dedicated themselves to figuring this out.  Two years ago, I wrote my first DMP.  It is a living document. I worked on it again this week. As a Master Guide, I am privileged to do the sacred work of serving men and women in their journey to their hearts, in their daring act of defining exactly what they want. I am in awe. Each has earned their wings, like eaglets perched on the edge of the nest, high above the canyon, and leaping off the edge, allowing the air to carry them to heights unimaginable to ducks.

“What Do I Want?”

Train for the game. Master the One-Two Power Punch. Skills matter.

So, Hats Off to all the heroes training their dragons and slaying the lies which have kept them small. This is your time! Rejoice that you are moving into your magnificence.  It’s an honor to accompany you.

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!

Week CW21: My Master Key Experience – Resurrection


Slide12For two years, I’ve been writing about The Great MKMMA Adventure, and what an adventure it has been. The word which best describes it is Resurrection,

How did I come back from the dead? I answered the Herald’s Call, embarked upon my Hero’s Journey, and became the hero in my own life.

What was that Herald’s Call? It was restlessness deep within which gnawed at me relentlessly. For years, decades, I ignored it, until it seemed I would die if I did not break out into something….else… but exactly what that something else was or would be I could not seem to grasp.

And THAT, my friend, is the essence of why I picked up the gauntlet thrown down before me, Sword in the Stone 2and set out upon The Master Key Experience. As Gandalf once said, ‘All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.’, and I decided to journey into the abyss of my greatest fears and either vanquish them, or die trying.

Some would say that a 61 year young woman should accept ‘things’, but I said, ‘NO’. I’ve got another 50+years to live, and I wanted to LIVE those years, not sleep walk through them in Zombie-dom. What is it that makes my heart sing? I had to know.

Energy medicine: I’d studied it for almost 20 years, investing thousands of hours and dollars learning how to use the laws of energy to heal. I remember telling my husband after my first exposure to it “I think this is why I am here.”, but I did nothing with it. That was a life pattern. As a result of the Master Key Experience, I now have a practice, and clients who are experiencing event_101280752healing of conditions as varied as chicken pox, poison ivy, hiccups, liver cancer, depression, and PTSD….the possibilities are endless. AND, I also obtained my certification to teach and regularly teach classes. What really makes me laugh, though, is that on all the ‘personality tests’ I have ever taken, I am an EXTREME introvert. People who know those test results cannot figure out how much fun I am having as I make presentations introducing Pranic Healing and while teaching the workshop! It’s a BLAST!! I think it’s where my inner ‘Robin Williams’ gets to come out and play. Who knows! But it shows! And I love it!

Chronic Happiness: People who met me always thought that I was happy. That was the result of what is called ‘Home Training’ in the South. Courtesy involves smiling pleasantly, being kind in both action and demeanor, and thinking of others. In other words, I had ‘the training’. As a Reunitedresult of the Master Key Experience, I have burst out of Courtesy into Happiness! Happiness incessantly flows forth from my innermost being! JOY is a great place to live! How did this transpire? I mastered the tools and skills of being self-directed, and embraced my inherent power to decide what to do with the time I am given. I have the power to choose. So, I choose Happy! It’s good for my health.

I’ve given myself the gift of freely giving myself to others. There was always a “Danger, Will Robinson” gatekeeper between me and all the people in my life. That faithful, loyal Protector Robot now has a new job. As a result, more and more opportunities arise to share knowledge, skills, experience, and wisdom. One of those is as a Certified Master Guide in the #MasterKeyExperience. Empowering others to create the desires of their hearts brings tears of Joy to my eyes. I cannot express the richness of this blessing.

The Master Keys Experience saved my life by giving me the gift of discovering who I am and why I am here. The GIFT is possible because not just one person, but an entire team of people dedicated themselves to my discovering my life purpose and passion. They did not tell me who I am. They guided me, and then guided me further as I dared to give that Self a voice, and permission to be. It was a resurrection from a life of quiet desperation to being vibrantly alive.

I’ve invested well over $100,000 on self-help and professional development workshops, courses, books, etc…. Mention any of those trainers/programs, and my reply is “Been there. Done That. Bought the T-Shirt. Sold a few.” The Master Key Experience is different in these three important ways:
1. It is a journey of Self-Discovery – you ARE the Hero of Your Life! No one tells you what to think, or how to think.
2. You truly become “The DECIDER” for every aspect of your life. And you get to hang out with tons of other people who are the Deciders in their own lives. Personal Responsibility is a BLAST!
3. You have a personal Guide [maybe even me! I’m a Certified Master Guide!] and a team of people dedicated to your successful navigation and completion of your Hero’s Journey

Of course, there was a downside…..
1. Course Requirements to keep your Pay-It-Forward Scholarship included Twitter, Facebook, and blogging…….none of which I had ever done and none of which I ever wanted to do.
2. You’ll have to hit the RESET button on your life’s schedule. It’s does take time to do the work. How much time? About the equivalent of 1 week of time over a six month period.
3. Changing is hard work…hard mental work…and requires both commitment and dedication.

Today, I don’t consider ANY of those ‘downsides’, but if you are considering the #MasterKeyExperience for yourself, you might start out that way. I so hated the whole IDEA of the first one that I created a pseudonym for the first year….So when you see Valeska Harraud….that’s really me.

OH! One more thing. The Master Key Experience is not for sale at ANY PRICE. Last year’s members have already paid your way, IF YOU QUALIFY! To see if you do, you will have to invest $1. All candidates who qualify for a Pay-It-Forward Scholarships will have to meet requirements to maintain them. They are awarded on a first come, first qualified basis, so Hop on the list and

By doing so, you’ll be notified of the application dates 2 days prior to the general public.

Week CW12: The Great MKMMA Adventure: Becoming Samurai Sam   

Observation includes Comparison, one petal, one flower, to another.

Observation includes Comparison, one petal, one flower, to another.

I just read a wonderful blog by James Clear which beautifully illustrates the power of observation.  I relished the truth of what he shared, and my heart overflowed with gratitude for MKMMA. Self-Mastery includes mastery of the way of Observation, and forsaking the way of Opinion. I recalled scenes from The Last Samurai wherein Katsumoto, informs Col. Algren that “The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life.” Can you observe at that level?  If you could, how would it serve you?

Another critical skill mastered in the Master Keys is the identification of your DMP, your Definite Major Purpose. Not only do you identify it, but you are taught the skills to create it, to bring it into your reality as the life you live.

Courage - Doing the next Right Thing just because it is the right thing to do.

Courage – Doing the next Right Thing just because it is the right thing to do.

What drives you?  What is it that could cause you to LEAP out of bed each day with ENTHUSIASM, eager to get going? Samurai live the Bushido Code, two characteristics of which are Courage and Justice.

Are you doing Justice to your life purpose, to the desires of your heart? Do you have the Courage to do so?

The Master Keys is your Hero’s Journey. When you answer the Herald’s Call, you say “YES” to

being the Hero of your life, to becoming a Samurai. At that place and time, you are filled with promise and possibility. We, like Katsumoto, are, in essence, asking you,Destiny do  “You believe a man can change his destiny?”, and like Algren, your inner most heart whispers back “I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed.”……and then you wonder, will the Master Keys reveal mine?

In the Master Keys, you develop new habits, the habits of living a successful life. Algren describes the Samurai’s daily habits, saying       “They are an intriguing people. From the moment they wake they devote themselves to the perfection of whatever they pursue. I have never seen such discipline.”

Discipline, in this context, means focusing on what matters, on what makes a difference in your life. Distractions Not Allowed!

As a Master Guide, I am a Samurai, for the meaning of the word Samurai is “to serve”.  Everyone connected with the MKMMA Experience is there for one purpose, and that is to serve each member as they boldly step into their greatness.

The Secrets to your Success are within you. It is our work to frame your experience in such a way that you discover your magnificence, refine it, and express it.  As Dr. Seuss would say, “Today you are YOU, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

In the Master Keys, you are privileged to meet your new best forever friend….YOU!!  The You God created you to be. Of course, we get to meet you as well, and to celebrate the emergence of you.

You can get a head start on the 2015 Cohort and change your life in 7 Days when you leave your name and email below. I’ll make sure you are at the front of the line for the Samurai Pay-It-Forward Scholarships being awarded!

It’s Your Hero’s Journey, the Only Journey worth Taking…and the only Story worth Telling.
