I’m sad that the MKMMA course is coming to a close. I have looked forward each week to the webinars and teachings and the ah-ha moments I’ve experienced. I’m sorry to say that I didn’t participate as frequently in the Alliance as was recommended and am now feeling that I’ve missed a huge part of the course and meeting new friends.That being said, the very exciting outcome is that I’m using without effort what I’ve practiced and am seeing and feeling the positive effects they’re having on my life. Six months ago I was going down the rabbit hole and not able to get a grip on how to make the changes that were necessary for the happiness of my marriage and what I thought was a dire financial situation. I created what I didn’t want because of fear created by my language and my thoughts. I am grateful for the consistent encouragement from Mark and Davene to do the work and embrace my journey to continue to do the work
I wake each morning in gratitude that I’m vertical, repeat that I will live this day as if it is my last and I am master of my emotions.
As I read Scroll VI and listened to Wallace Waddle this past week there was a moment when I thought that having him introduced earlier in the course would have been a really good thing. But as the two weeks have progressed I understand that all the work (progression) I’ve done over the past 5 months working on visualization and meditation are the tools that are necessary for building the belief in the power within me to be and design the life I want.
Og gives us the encouragement and plan to be masters of our emotions. Waddle offers us steps to be wealthy, why we need to be wealthy and teaching others. Mark and Davene have shared their knowledge and belief, with passion, so I can become the person I’m meant to be. One of my favorite sentences brought forth from Scroll II “Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth” is the culmination of Scroll VI and Waddle’s teachings.
After watching the video of Joseph Campbell and listening to the pre-webinar this week a past experience came into mind.
About 20 years ago I had the opportunity to attend a seminar where the speaker took us into past lives and future lives. It’s difficult to remember the premise of how this was set up to begin other than being put in a hypnotic state and told that we were going to a masquerade ball. We were to take note of who we saw as we entered the ball room. The first character I saw was a person dressed as Cleopatra bedecked in jewels and beautifully made up eyes. The second was a man dressed as a gangster out of the 1920’s wearing a cool hat tilted every so slightly to the side and wearing a trench coat. The third was someone dressed as Abe Lincoln with the tall stove top hat, and dark and heavy wool clothes. When we were brought back to the present the speaker proceeded to tell us that’s who we were in past lives!! I laughed and couldn’t take it seriously and just thought it sounded like a good movie possibility. We then went into another hypnotic state and he took us into a future life. Now, in this life I’m on board a space craft standing in the captain’s helm. There was me, my best friend and several others staring out of a really large semi-circular window surrounded by computers and lights. What I remember was laughing and looking into space with a complete feeling of freedom, excitement, joy and hope.
So, as I recalled this experience, I began looking at it differently. Maybe it was a metaphor for all my different masks and that my future life experience was the shedding of the masks and all of it still is a part of my Hero’s Journey.
I found myself in a struggle this week getting bogged down in minutia as certain aspects of my life continued to be challenged. Lesson 21 was the perfect lesson for my meditations this week. I realized I was thinking very small, bringing up old images and that I do have the power to destroy the negatives and impress on my mind the perfect image of my DMP. I meditated on 21-6 many times – Large ideas have a tendency to eliminate all smaller ideas, so that it is well to hold ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all small or undesirable tendencies. This will remove innumerable petty and annoying obstacles from your path. These obstacles on the grand scale of things are bothersome hiccups and lack vitality and life.
It’s funny how the right lesson seems to be at the right time each week for me! 21-17 says so much – I know I must not hesitate to aspire to the highest possible attainments in anything I may undertake (my DMP and PPNs) for the mind forces are ever ready to lend themselves to a purposeful will in the effort to crystallize its highest aspirations into acts, accomplishments, and events.
I know this hiccup is not the Truth. The old subby was working hard at being dominant, and I am grateful for my journey with the MKMMA and the work I’ve done to continue to grow.
I live this day as if it is my last and focus on my Master Piece within and my Master Piece without.
This week was like riding the perfect wave. So many pieces came together. I was truly inspired by my Franklin Makeover for the week, specialized knowledge, and MK 14 – To become inspired means to get out of the beaten path, out of the rut, because extraordinary results require extraordinary means. When we come into a recognition of the Unity of all things and that the source of all power is within, we tap the source of inspiration. I was inspired to meet with possible customers and business partners with confidence and poise. I was present and listened more intently. The results were positive and encouraging. I felt out of the rut and out of the beaten path. The question, ‘what am I pretending not to know? – extraordinary results require extraordinary means. It was all good and I felt it!
What’s next? I was so pleased with the outcome of my face-to-face meetings this week, but when it was time to pick up the phone there were too many other things I needed to do (not). I’m going back to week 13 and reviewing NARC because the phone continues to be heavy when I think of calling old friends and acquaintances. I’m still pretending not to know! There’s the disconnect from the perfect wave of the pieces that did come together. I know I’m on the right track, now it’s time to put it all together so I can get the extraordinary results I’m visualizing in my DMP.
All in all I’m loving my progress and continue to be mind blown by understanding the power within each of us.
Lesson 19 ignited total awe and excitement as I imagined the true power of thought and vital force. I read Og’s “I will live this day as if it is my last” and close my eyes to imagine what would I do if it were my last? The answer – to create my Master Piece. The MK’s are making it easier to concentrate on the details of my PPN’s and what it takes to fulfill them. I see a Master Piece as a canvas to be covered with the medium needed (the clarity of my thoughts) to fulfill the inspiration. A Master Piece takes time to create and this journey is a tug and pull from new Blueprint back to old subby and forward again.
Mark and Davene’s excitement and passion about the progression has become contagious for me, and the concentration required on what I want more of is working into my thoughts consistently.
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!
Week 18 was powerful and even more transforming than any other in the past for me. I watched Finding Joe last night and I’ve heard Mark describe the Hero’s Journey many times. I got it each time he pointed out that every movie with a story is the Hero’s Journey and I understood (or thought I did) each of the steps as the hero continued on the journey and put myself in those shoes. When Mark asked the question “How can we all be the Greatest Salesman?” I was not connecting the Hero’s Journey to the question. What hit me as I watched Finding Joe was that the dragon to be conquered is the dragon I’ve made up. But more importantly, I quit seeing the Dragon as something else to be conquered. I finally understood that the Dragon is me, just as the greatest salesman and the prospect are one and the same – me.
I took today off from any business just to feel what this means to me. I found myself laughing at the dragon I’ve conjured for such a long time. It has caused much dismay and has been troublesome. The very, very excellent thing is that our exercises, the sit, gratitude, visualizations and readings have given me the courage to continue to dismantle the dragon and continue my journey.
