Thank you Og for Scroll VI

I am amazed and shocked at the events of the past couple months.  My Hero’s Journey was well entrenched…I thought.

Then Scroll V.  To go from I am nature’s greatest miracle Yeah!

To… I live this day as if it is my last.

Bam!  Nosedive into recent history.  Every time I read it I got farther away from the beautiful experience I was having in MKMMA .  Back to the  memories of diagnosis, surgery, recovery (trusting), and fea and lots of other stuff I had put behind me. I still don’t want to acknowledge the fear because I know that is totally counterproductive.

i stopped virtually everything that was working so wonderfully in my life – loving my “new” life.  Everything was bopping along very thoughtfully.  And then .. Days went by not doing most of my exercises, doing some reading thankfully and I was faithful to the webinars.  They have really kept my head above water. Old patterns revived themselves and I am upset with myself for letting that happen.  I take responsibility for going there.  I knew it was happening and still I went to the “pit”  not as deep as I have been but nonetheless this strong? mind of mine went down that road.

My mastermind group has been so caring and thoughtful through this time.  Offering kindnesses and I felt cared for and shall I say loved.  When I am in this place I don’t know why anyone would.  So enough of that destructive negative thought  pattern…blah,blah,blah…

i will chock it up to growth.  Learning to be wary of what takes me to that place.  In retrospect I should have stopped reading Scroll V sooner or used the Law of Substitution or Dual Thought with fervor.  I chose to start Scroll VI early and it has been great.  Talk about timely sequencing of the chapters.

I AM master of my emotions

Week 17HJ – Getting engaged again! Why am I doing this?

No I am not getting married!  Been there, done that a couple times and there is still reframing of my thoughts that needs refining before that is soulfully on my dmp.  It was there at the beginning of MKMMA however my revised dmp has changed it from marriage to close friendship.

Anyway that is not what this blog is about.

It’s about dissolving the old Blueprint and solidifying the new one.  I am constantly refining my new blueprint.  It is at times frustrating as to get any real change in my life I require total commitment to the change.  If the blueprint is constantly in motion how is change going to happen. The cement Buddha loves me :)   Hence I start again.

I am getting thankfully  GETTING ENGAGED again.  Getting back into the swing of the progressions and the importance of each new (and old) exercise, reading and writing.  I really enjoy learning and the study of the mind and especially my mind is intriguing. Ego?  Why do I do the things I don’t want to do.? (As Paul says in scripture)  It really  boggles the mind.   Why have I let my MKMMA slip?  I want it to be a top priority.  And it is again.  Interruptions I will push aside.  Enough!  Thank you very much.  I love you but I need space and time to work these progressions fully.  The new thought is I have time!  Yes!!

No more vain attempts.  I will use my skills, my mind, my heart and my body to use my “unlimited potential”.  Yesterdays accomplishments are yesterdays.  I will not live there.  “I can increase my accomplishments of yesterday and this I will do”   ” I am not on this earth by chance. I am here for a purpose…and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.”  Wow!  Here we go.  A bit scary!

“I will concentrate my energy on the challenge of the moment and my actions will help me forget all else”  CONCENTRATION.

I will no longer be fooled by the garments of my discouragements, heartaches, problems and illness.  I have a  mind to see and feel and understand that these are sincere gifts from God.  I grow as I remove the layers and see the beauty in each experience.

It’s a wonderful life.

Hugs.

Week 17 – True to my word?

This is really hard now.  I have been and still am late on submitting my  blog.  It is eating at me big time! I always keep my promises!!  Well I didn’t and it feels bad.

The longer I let it go the worse everything seems to get.  I remember when I started this journey how important it was to keep my promises to myself.  Mark suggested making only small promises to ourselves that we were in control of and to do it.   I did this and felt so great about keeping them all.  It built up so well and then at week 16 I jumped all in and paid for a hosted blog and AWeber.  I was really going to get super duper engaged. Then a strange thing happened.  My old blueprint seemed to move in.  I forgot my new access codes and my life got really busy witty sensitive commitments. My MKMMA work slipped and then  I got more and more frustrated with myself that I wasn’t completing my work.  My promises to myself got lost in the stress of all I had to do. And here I am back in my old pattern of beating myself up because I just haven’t had the energy to do it all.  Excuses, excuses… Running away…

Here it is into week 18 and 2:30 in the morning and again I can’t sleep.  So instead of tossing and turning I went downstairs,  got my computer and persevered through finding the access to my blog.  And here I am spilling my disappointment with myself.  Haanel and Hill ring in my ears. OK so I fell down,  It doesn’t mean I can’t get up.  So here I am getting up. Literally and figuratively. I made a promise to my mastermind group yesterday that I would do one blog to catch up.  And I almost didn’t keep my word.  It wasn’t going to happen.  My spirit would die another little bit if I didn’t get up and Do It Now!   Thank you MMA peeps.  I love you!  Hugs :)

Today I am better.  I completed a blog.  And thankfully I feel I can sleep.  3;15 am.  zzzzzzzz

 

 

Week 15 God created miracles – you and me!

Prov 4:23 TEV:  Be careful how you think, your life is shaped by your thoughts.

Haanel: 15:13  …we can afford to entertain only desirable thoughts     15:14 …as words are thoughts taking form, we must be especially careful to use nothing but constructive and harmonious language…     15:!6  It is with words that we must express our thoughts, …         15:18 This wonderful POWER of clothing thoughts in the form of words…

Og Scroll IV: I am nature’s greatest miracle.  I will concentrate my energy (thoughts) on the challenge of the moment and my actions will help me forget all else.

Emerson’s Law of Compensation and Hill”s The Greatest Secret quotes are to be added later.

The life we create is above all material circumstance, it is about our thinking HABITS.  We were given a mind like no other creature and the life we have created to this moment is merely fodder for growth.   Every obstacle as Og writes is just an opportunity for us to learn and grow our character one moment at a time.

Habits and Temptation: All temptation begins in our mind. It has been programmed into us for sometimes decades.  Even someone well meaning said “blah, blah, blah” and we subconsciously internalized this as our reality. When a temptation/habit is presented that confirms our thinking of who we are it is easy and our natural instinct to go down that road.  New programming/thinking constantly reinforced by our MKMMA trying is the road to change.

My mind is my greatest asset and the KEY to the future I want.  ” An unmanaged mind leads to tension.  A managed mind leads to tranquility.  AN unmanaged mind leads to conflict.  A managed mind leads to confidence.  An unmanaged mind ads to stress.  When you don’t try to control your mind and the way  you direct your thoughts, you will have an enormous amount of stress in your life.  But a managed mind leads to strength, security and serenity.”  Rick Warren

Haanel 15:4 Growth is attained through an exchange of the old (difficulties, inharmonious and obstacles) for the new (opportunity, harmony, ease and flow of life)

Constantly, diligently working on keeping my thoughts positive and focused on what I want my life to be.  It is WORK.  Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance – My mantra…

Lots of Love and Big Huge Hugs.

Week 14 Persistence Plus…Right thinking,

Focus, Discipline, Passion, Determination, Good Habits, Love in Our Hearts…

I have always loved the study of the mind and success.  Reading about it has brought clarity but then it is the above qualities in consistent action that is the kicker.  Looking into anyone’s lasting truly successful life story we find all these qualities. They start out thinking right and then go about getting what they think about.  And they ride through the bumps along the way.  Discouragement, being mocked, life circumstances, doubt creeping in are all facts of life.  It is how we deal with them that defines a truly successful person.

October Sky and Cool Runnings were terrific inspiring examples of aspiration beyond reality – A few kids building a rocket and at the creation of a Jamaican Bob Sled team in the Olympics.

A few of the points that were made very clear to me are that each person had a very clear definiteness of purpose and determination to learn whatever it took to get what he dreamed.

They followed through when mocked.  Some took a break from their dream when faced with family circumstances and/or pressure to conform to what Dad or their community thought their reality should be.  It took an Influencer and Encourager to believe in them so they could  revive the mental power and courage to think for themselves and listen to that passionate voice within.  They studied and Practiced Perfectly.  They took each defeat as a learning experience and went the next step. They visualized the end result and always thought their dream was possible.

I loved these movies.  They are really good choices for where we are in our MKMMA hero’s journey.  I am looking forward to Rudy and Door to Door.

Key notes from Haanel’s Master Key Part 14

25. Thought is the only reality; conditions are but the outward manifestations; as the thought changes, all outward or material conditions must change in order to be in harmony with their creator, which is thought.

26. But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps  backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.

27. If you enter into the discipline necessary bring about a radical change in your life, you must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full consideration, and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision…

30.  Your world without will be a reflection of your world within.

“Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view.”  George Mathew Adams

Harmony and Peace.

Week 13 Christmas and Forever

I love my family.  I am blessed with a family that are loving, kind and generous in many ways.  They live  on one coast and I on the other and my commitment is to visit at least once a year.  Expensive and challenging.  I want to see them and be with them and love them. And this year it is a Christmas visit.  First in New Brunswick and then Florida.  Awesome.  My home in Vancouver seems so far away when I am here.

My resolve each visit is to stay on track with my other commitments while away. However I invariably fall off on the rails in doing the things I promised myself I would keep up. You know what I am talking about?…the exercise and eating habits, and the MKMMA routines I really, really enjoy.  I thought I was getting stronger in my habits and persistence.  I am and there is still a lot to be done.  The inner diet is much needed now after being away for 2 weeks.

It is a great awareness to see how quickly the old patterns/ blueprints/self talk seeps in when I am not constantly infusing this new learned wisdom into my subby.

The 50 minute exercise is great.  Although I haven’t made it 50 min.  I am better doing the out loud exercises when I am alone and that hasn’t been happening lately.  Remembering what you said Mark & Davene “If we think of struggle that is what we create”  And I am choosing to live in the ease and flow of joyfully creating my life!

I have finally been able to listen to Week 12 in full and I am just getting to the cards. I can already see the value in having them handy.  It is wonderful to remember all the great things I have done and experienced.  It’s a fantastic reminder of a life well lived. And getting better, more focused and intentional.

Do it now!

I can be what I will to be!

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

Ask and you shall receive!   Believe!

I always keep my promises!

Much love to all that read this.  Hugs.

I hope to see you in April :)

My mantra

Week 11 The cone exercise hit my funny bone

The cone exercise was so funny for me.  I could draw the box, the circle and then the cone without much effort to begin with.  Albeit the ends were a bit fuzzy and as I changed the colors it became even more unclear.

Then I noticed my thoughts were interfering with my concentration and focus.

“There’s no cone there” “Are you nuts” “What are you thinking-it’s a white wall!”  I started to laugh and laugh hard at what my monkey mind was doing. Then of course everything disappeared and it has been challenging getting it back.  That monkey mind keeps taunting me and I keep laughing out loud at it… maybe I really am nuts :)

Anyway, I enjoyed the awareness and laughter.  Next time will be better and on and off it has been.  However I have never been able to get that initial clarity back.  Meantime I will hold the cone in my sub and it will make me smile.

Too fun!  I love this exercise.

Week 10 Mental Diet! DC! :-) :-(

Well, well, well…

Honesty is the best policy-right?  I fell of the rails for a bit.

Life has just gotten out of hand and I am in the process of healing it in.  I need to say NO! I mean really need to say NO.  I have been feeling overwhelm these past couple weeks and have reached the breaking point. I will need to disappoint some people so I can keep healthy.  Since I am a people pleaser this is work.  Does anyone think I need a new mindset right now? :)  I fully admit it.

I was doing so amazingly well the first 8 weeks. ALL my exercises plus were all done and I was feeling on top of the world.  I still am a happy person, however at the moment a very busy person.

I went gusto into creating this life I have planned and have implemented soon many activities to move me forward.  At this point I believe a little less gusto would serve me better.  And I do have an excellent mastermind partner.  He’s doing way better than I am.  Improvement is near.

Loving the course and exercises and reading however… I have not had a chance to review my DC s webinar’s.  Will do that asap.  Hopefully I can stay on board until I get there.

Love and Hugs to all of you.

Who wants to keep you in the dark?

This is a cause I support wholeheartedly!  We must PERSIST in getting this info known.

Maybe there are other MKMMAers that are interested in this info too.  I was shocked!  Monsanto is well known for GMO. But Smuckers ?  Land o Lakes?

Who wants to keep you in the dark?

Oregon and Colorado had ballot initiatives to require mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Junk food and chemical corporations are spending million$ to fight these laws to prevent you from knowing whether or not your food contains GMOs. Sadly, the right-to-know people were outspent and the initiatives failed in Colorado but as of this writing the Oregon vote is too close to call. Who are the companies fighting to prevent you from knowing if foods are GMO? Below is a list and a breakdown of what they spent in Colorado and Oregon respectively. (1)

Colorado/Oregon

Monsanto: $4.7/$4.8 million
DuPont/Pioneer (Oregon only): $3.04 million
Pepsi: $1.65/$1.4 million
Coca-Cola: $1.1/$.7 million
Kraft Foods: $1.03/$.87 million
General Mills: $820,000/$695,000
The Hershey Co.: $380,000/$320,000
J.M. Smucker Co.: $345,000/$295,000
Dow Agrosciences, a Dow Chemical Company: $300,000/$368,000
Kellogg Co.: $250,000/$250,000
Conagra Foods: $250,000/$250,000
Flowers Food Inc. (Oregon only): $250,000
Smithfield Foods (Oregon only): $200,000
Land O’Lakes (Oregon only): $760,000

There is presently a boycott of the above companies as they try to prevent you from knowing if your food contains GMOs. Please join it.

Week 9 My Wage – Jessie Rittenhouse 1918

The original MKMMAer ?  :)

Poem from 1918 by Jessie B. Rittenhouse.

“My Wage”

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.
