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 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 Two: The Master Key Experience – Gatekeeper or Monkey Mind?

 

What you think you become You are what you eat. How many times have we heard it, thought it, and said it?  The body perfectly expresses the truth of this statement. What about the mind? You are what you THINK!  This is equally true and this eternal truth is expressed in many traditions.

The Bible: “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” [Proverbs 4:23]

The Buddha: “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.’ 

Emerson: “You become what you think about all day long.”

Pretty powerful stuff!  No wonder we focus on self-mastery in both body and mind in the Monkey MindMaster Key Experience.  In Week 1, our assignment was to sit perfectly still for 15 minutes.  This week, Week 2, our assignment is to sit perfectly still for 15 minutes with no thought.  I achieve a series of moments of mindlessness daily. The Monkey Mind rules, however!  The Monkey Mind is the mind of distractions. The Monkey Mind fills my time of repose and focus with ‘To Do’ lists, mini-rants, questions, curiosities about the sounds I hear outside…….and on and on and on.  It is a humbling demonstration of the importance of training the mind, for if my life is shaped by my thoughts, it is beneficial to be the one consciously directing those thoughts.

 

tame the monkey mindAnd consciously directing thoughts is the job of the Objective mind. If we are to create our life through our thoughts, then we must be in control of the thoughts that enter into our consciousness. Haanel tells us “Not only can it impress other minds, but it can direct the subconscious mind. In this way the conscious mind becomes the responsible ruler and guardian of the subconscious mind. It is this high function which can completely reverse conditions in your life.”

Mastering the Seven Laws of Mind empowers us to become the master of our lives, the Gatekeeper who directs and instructs the sub-conscious mind such that the life of the desires of our hearts becomes our daily experience.

Stay tuned. This adventure only gets more interesting!

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 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.

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