Week 19: Power. Strike A Pose.

The Land Downunder Has Played Host to a HEATWAVE of Considerable  Consequence .. Impacting My Capacity for Action, Function + Thought.


So I gave myself permission, yes permission  .. to just ‘get by’ and survive until I could thrive! I found myself challenged to think, deeply – or otherwise,  on anything other than staying as cool as possible, ensuring my loves were as cool as possible, sufficiently hydrated and coping.   Like most Aussies I love sunshine, blue skies, white sandy beaches and all of the other wonders of our beautiful Country, but its been so hot here that the only things to appeal have been the out-of-the-way waterholes for swimming .. and even they have been so overcrowded due to everyone-under-the Aussie-sun wanting to achieve the same respite.   There are days when your innate inner energy carries you through and then there are days when you just find your out of order sign and just run with it!


Anyhoo…. getting back to my state of play from Week 19 .. and its relevance to me during the experience and process that is the Masterkey  ..and all that!

18.  All wealth is the offspring of power; possessions are of value only as they confer power.  Events are significant only as they affect power; all things represent certain forms and degrees of power.
19. A knowledge of cause and effect as shown by the laws governing steam, electricity, chemical affinity and gravitation enables men to plan courageously and to execute fearlessly. These laws are called Natural Laws, because they govern the physical world, but all power is not physical power; there is also mental power, and there is moral and spiritual power.

20. What are our schools, our universities, but mental powerhouses, places where mental power is being developed?


I have become mindfully conscious of power .. as an observer ..in the way that it plays out in daily interactions and how it is influenced, both forcefully and organically, as a result of the interfacing and presence of others; alongside of their perception of and reaction to displays of power.   For the most part, physical power and prowess are obvious to the naked eye though for quite some time now  I have observed acts of moral, spiritual and mental power being practised and transactioned. I have felt it, keenly within myself, and, in a corner of my mind, mentally noted each interaction I have succumbed, submitted or subscribed to – be it through my own actions or those of others.

In August of 2015 I removed my two young sons, Isaac and Eli, from the mainstream education system and pursued our entry into the world of homeschooling.  It required of me great personal courage and mental power to defy the threatening manner of the School Principal but I had the spiritual and moral power to do what I knew I must in order to honour my sons through their learning journey.   I was mocked within the school community, of which I had been a highly active member; I was ridiculed among the teaching staff, of which I had been a highly contributing volunteer for many extension lessons within both of my sons classes and I was questioned, under the guise of concern – in the form of good intent – by the mothers who had known me from kinder through to preparatory and foundation years.  I realised that rowing a boat against the tide of conventionality wasn’t always going to see me catch the wave I wished for, but that if I was disciplined in my pursuit, I could realise my intended destination.

Homeschooling our sons has given us a wonderful opportunity to connect with each other, and the broader homeschooling community, beneficially linking us with others aligned with the same focus on offering tailor-made, purposeful learning opportunities edifying the uniqueness of the learning styles of our children.  It is when my sons are laughing and looking to learn matter so obtuse and complex in concept that I am assured that our journey is the right one for us!  My wish for my sons to be self-directed thinkers can only happen if I allow them the freedom to think, to question, to ponder .. and to facilitate ways in which their discoveries can be acquiesced!

OMG I masterkeyed my babies… without even realising it at the time!!



I choose to dance to the music and the tunes playing in my life.
I will continue to strike the pose  and be, in, my power.

  1. No doubt wherever the heat comes from – the sun or the school system – you are a survivor Fiona! Kudos to you for instilling the tenets of the MKE in your precious boys. Teaching them to be self-directed thinkers at their young age is fantastic!

    1. Jonathan, thankyou xx it has been a curious experience – the rigid, dismissive, judgemental arrogance of the mainstream community and the welcoming, non-judgemental, nurturing environment and attitude that has been, predominantly, our experience with fellow homeschoolers (all of whom work off a varied range of educational protocols and philosophies) .. eyes wide open to a future which edifies my children and advances their opportunities to thrive whilst learning xx 🙂

    1. Thankyou kind John xx they were a ‘mob’ alright .. funny thing, I used to drive into the carpark and think ‘not my people, not my tribe’ …. curious if my thoughts shaped my energy and jnfouenced exchange, but I was never authentically drawn or inspired to connect, at a personal ‘ real ‘ level, with a single solitary soul.
