Week #09 (2015-16) – Positive Affirmation!

I am whole, perfect strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.

I love this affirmation – I just keep repeating it whenever I have any alone time.  I know this is sending a message to my subby  and will manifest over time.  In fact, back in the spring of this year I had some nerve pinching issues in my neck while I was off doing volunteer work in Guatemala.  This affirmation was probably the single biggest reason I didn’t have any major issues while down there.

How is everyone doing on the 7 Day Mental Diet?  I am having a hard time keeping a clear head.  Initially I would only last a couple of hours then BAM I’d fall of the wagon.  Even now, my longest stretch has only been 3 days and then something happens to derail me.  I can’t seem to become the observer as easily as I’d like.  Not giving up though … I AM going to get there!

Happy Thanksgiving to my USA brothers and sisters!

Week #08 (2015-16) – Imagination

This week we focused on our imagination.  Anything we want to create in the world without, we need to create in the world within using our imagination.  Seems so logical and obvious.  I can’t speak for anyone else but as I have grown older and become a responsible adult my imagination has been left behind long ago.  This week as I did my readings and sit I tried to figure why this has happened.  I really don’t have a good answer.

As my kids were growing up I would see their imagination in their school work, in the pillow forts they made, the wall drawing they made with crayons, putting up their artwork on our walls using a lip blam “glue stick”.  Now they are still young (ages 11 & 13) but I can see that they are following in their daddy’s footsteps and becoming more and more logical and practical.  Well this has to come to an end!

These are the seemingly “childish” exercises we are all doing in the Masterkey.  I can feel my imagination starting to surface again.  It is certainly a progression to get to a point where the effects start to come together based on us changing the cause.  One thing is for sure – my kids are never allowed to lose their imagination!

 

Week #07 (2015-16) – Visualize!

This week marks a pivotal point in my Masterkey journey.  I am starting to finally “get” how this all works.  All the little parts that Mark J and the gang have been talking about the past few weeks are finally making sense.  Individually, these exercises don’t amount to much but synergistally its a whole new ball game!

Little things in my life have been lining up more often than not.  I fully chalk it up to the Masterkey experience so far.  Things at the office are looking great.  My home and family life is wonderful.  Things are just getting done without all the drama surrounding it.  Seems like the catchup game that most of us play is starting to come to an end.  I feel that once we are “caught up”, that is when the real magic starts to happen!

This week we are visualizing.  This is very powerful.  Sometimes we get so wound up in our lives that we fail to realize that we are creating our reality on some level by the thoughts and images that we hold in our minds.  This goes back to all the little exercises that Mark J. et al has us doing so that we visualize “better”.  Great job Mark J.  – looking forward to even more positivity in my life!

Week #06 (2015-16) – Nice Try Old Blueprint!

This was a crazy week.  Every single day there seemed to be a fire that needed to be extinguished by yours truly!  The old blueprint was trying hard to get me to lose focus on Masterkey.  In fact, I sort of did.  I started to convince myself that maybe I will deal with “Stuff” this week and get back into it in the next week or two.  I had a chat with my wife midweek who then reminded me that you can’t skip activities and expect to get results.  Either do it fully and properly or don’t do it at all.  My wife has done the program last year and knows how it works.

She is right.  After 20 years of being married to my bestest friend I have lost count of how many times I have said that.  I have started to clear my plate of things that are not directly part of my DMP.  Feels quite good actually.  I have made a timetable of how my day should flow with all my required activities on it.

I have always had a dream board but this week I worked on modifying it so that it had a Masterkey flair to it.  Always enjoyed arts and crafts!  Now that things were starting to get back on track I hit another bump on the road.  My laptop and essentially my lifeline to basically everything went haywire.  I ended up having to reformat and reinstall everything.  It took 3 days but I now have my laptop back (thankfully I have been diligent with my backups so no data was lost).  Sorry but that is why this BLOG post is a bit tardy.  Now that my computer is fully functional again, I will be back on track again.

To my Indian MKMMAers – wishing you all a joyous and prosperous Diwali!

 

Week #05 (2015-16) – Drink Deep

This was a great week.  I finally felt a sense of being back in control of things.  Work life has settled down and is now humming along.  There are still seemingly a million things to do but I don’t feel the stress.  My volunteer commitments are also back on track.  I also feel that I am more engaged in my family life.  I am finding that I am breaking my big tasks into smaller bite size morsels that are easy to get through.  As a result of finishing smaller tasks I am giving my subby frequent small victories which is starting to snowball.

I know we have already discussed this over the past several weeks but sometimes until I experience it first hand I seem to have a hard time accepting things on faith.  There is that faith thing again.  Still working on it and certainly getting better.

Next week we move on to the next scroll.  Although the first scroll is powerful, the second one is my favorite. Being my third round of Masterkey I have had a preview of things to come.  I find it the key to the entire program at least for me is the second scroll which talks about having love in our hearts.  With this as a base there is nothing that cannot be achieved eventually.  It reminds us to look at ALL things with a softer gaze and see the beauty in everything.  Everything from a beautiful sunset to the guy who cut you off in traffic!  Sorry had to throw that in – was getting a bit too serious 🙂

As I close out the Blog for Week #5, I leave you with a quote that has been with me for the last 28 years.  “Learning is a dangerous thing, drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring” – Alexander Pope.  Till next week – stay thirsty my friends … sorry couldn’t resist!
