Week 22: Mind Matter

img_53569. We can understand, then, something of the power which the mind possesses over the body. – Haanel

Throughout the course of my childhood I recall always being advised by my mother that “life’s success” was 99% ‘mind over matter’.  

Curiously, there was never any mention – nor did I ever  give any thought to the absence of (or, whereabouts)  of the elusive 1%.  Instead, I remember thinking, at the time, how silly the saying, for (I reasoned), if I chose to not study it would reflect  poorly upon my test results ie  if I relied solely on my belief of attainment of success (mind over matter), without studying, that I would be moderately delusional to expect a favourable grade!

Whilst on the right track in terms of understanding how powerful our mind can be –  for my mother there was a high state of subconscious ‘lack’ attached to much in the path of this mantra, or mindset, in that she subconsciously believed that ‘life’ should pose many unnecessary struggles.

Let me just say, some 30 (plus) years down the track l, as a result of this masterkey experience : that, right there, is a doozy!

I understand, now,  my mother was trying to instill various forms of strength and stickability into our ‘mindset survival armour’ but she did so with loaded-limiting belief and subconscious negativity.. and this was not her fault, but, due merely to the fact that she was essentially her own cement buddha : through her own choices, decisions and circumstances influenced by others … and I get it … it was her journey!

I feel no judgment, no pain, no regret (noooo emotion) attached to the recognition and true understanding of this.

I also feel immense gratitude for I recognise and appreciate how much that same mantra, absorbed by me in an entirely different perspective, has anchored my mental strength and personal determination to being resilient – to never giving up – to always looking for the silver linkng in the cloud, from always recharting myself to my inner compass.

One big week of ahaaaaaaah epiphanies this week, dear reader – mahalo xx

Week 21: Thought. The World Within.

Have you ever stopped to think – or reflect – why it is, that for some people, life can be in a seemingly constant ‘rinse, repeat‘ cycle of frustrating sameness – be itdeemed good or bad…. whereas, for others, life is a constant journey of delicious discovery, marvellous wonder, exhilarating exploration and enthuuuuusiastic experience?

I’m not sure if you’re a lot, or just a little, like me .. maybe that is irrelevant and I am just pondering aloud, online, wanting to make myself feel okay about thinking this?  I guess I put that question out there to gauge if, perhaps, I am like other people, because this thought-scenario has crossed my mind, at various times – not just recently, as a result of the masterkey experience, but before, during the course of a number of years during my lifetime.

Have you ever crossed paths with, or know of, a select individual who is, literally, seemingly, coaxed or colluded, into haphazardly repeating the same day over and over, throughout the course of their life – with the exact same precise outcomes playing out each and every time; and yet with the expectation of a potentially different outcome?

It is curious that my understanding and growth, from the lessons of this masterkey course, have caused me to consider, and reflect upon, whether these individuals (and yes, I am hugely cognisant that I know more than just one person seemingly like this) are so compellingly subconsciously addicted to this felt-known cycle that they blindly continue to subject themselves to varying degrees of self-sabotage through patterns of negative self-talk, thoughts, action and behaviour.  Does their anticipation of matters, events or goals going awry, or not to plan, connect, collude and align with their subconscious visualising less than desirous outcomes, and; do those thoughts and visualisations become manifested through their marred perception of their reality?    Holy Moses!  That was a freak to transcribe!

I mean, I get that everyone, or most people, face personal battles – or challenges – and that this is part of the process we call ‘life’.  I get that we all, or most people – at least, have choices and decisions to make which influence pathways in which they can then move forward or, for that matter, sideways, backwards or stay fixed ..and unmoving.  If, even, in  the process of staying fixed and unmoving, they are still in motion, in a manner of speaking, they are a cycle of circling nothingness – say what?!   .. because if everything is energy, and if energy is always a constant, then our energy to stay fixed and unmoving is still energy spent and so then, in a sense, the energy remains in motion.

 

 

img_5356And that’s where I’ve been at folks, third person observations rambling inside my conscious awakened mind.

Is my purpose from the masterkey experience to be a connector, linking others to the masterkey experience, or to continue heightening my own personal cognitive recognition and understanding (thus impacting, bilaterally, but passively), in both a conscious and present manner, for both my personal and business life, for the benefit of my connection to others?  Or, is this for me to facilitate – and just be – the non-influential presence for others seeking to pursue self-direction personally further, rather than enhancing my own personal course.  Deep? Delusional? Distracted? Disjointed?  I sense all of these D’s are dancing in my rainbow at the moment.

(No, it’s not naughty o’clock and I’m not quaffing champers, just letting my mind fly freely as my fingers attempt to convey the mental narrative that is this collation of wordspew lol; and, whilst I am sure I understand what I am saying, I am not entirely convinced I am conveying this accurately.  That said, you are most welcome to pen your thoughts and share in this alliance of our collaborative journey xx)

 

 

 

Week 20: Defining Silence. I Am.

In Part 20 of The Master Key, Haanel writes:
9.  But perception will come only in the Silence; this seems to be the condition required for all great purposes. You are a visualising entity. Imagination is your workshop. It is here that your ideal is to be visualised.

 

I am certain, dear reader, at one time or another, like most people, you have been met with the phrase, ‘the silence was deafening’ …well, in recent times this phrase has resonated anew, for me, and that is with the perception and understanding that has aligned in my headspace, as a result of the masterkey journey, and experience, which we have jointly embarked upon: I realised  the silence, is, in actuality, defining .. of mindful intuitive clarity, of manifestation of that visualisation into known existence and felt reality.

silence-loud

The value of the sit, my supreme inner requirement for the imperativeness of the sit (and my physical, spiritual and mental demand for my compliance with the now daily sit): the significance of the pivotal role the sit plays in my daily visualisation and manifestation is not lost on me!

In the past, of an evening, arriving home from a day at work, I used to love kicking off my heels and peeling off stockings and walking out of our home and grounding myself .. feeling the cool of the soft grass beneath my feet; my daughter, Georgia, and I would do this together (except she’d kick off her school shoes and socks), and we’d talk about our day, gaze at the early evening stars and cement what I would make for dinner .. always we’d cook with colour lol ..it was part of our daily routine, feeling the energy from the ground beneath our feet.

In the same way as I, in the past, would fulfil my own personal craving for walking on sandy beaches or floating in the ocean .. letting my  body, mind and soul reconnect with nature, realigning my energy with that of the Mother Nature; it is curious that since implementing the daily sit, (as part of the requirements of the masterkey course), that I find myself experiencing the same level of universal synergetic connectivity – I feel more intertwined with the person I am meant to be and grateful for the calming peace and strength I feel as a result.  I Am. Defining. My Future Reality.once-was

 

 

Week 18: I Got Nothin’.

Front of mind:
“I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.”

9 of the past 7 days have been crazy-overloaded-busy!!  Getting this post written and submitted, has been the hardest.

And. That Is When I Reminded Myself.

it’s all  A-O-K.

I Am. Nature’s Greatest Miracle.

Week 17: I Am. Courage.

 ‘I am Nature’s greatest miracle and I give myself Permission to be so.’

courage-permission

From my perspective, this week – at least, was an interesting one .. so to speak.

 If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.
I bore witness to continued acts of kindness (both direct and indirect, personal and impersonal) and, upon reflection, I also bestowed acts of kindness upon an unsuspecting recipient – myself!   Yep (!), you read correctly – I bestowed acts of kindness upon myself (by myself, for myself) in the broader form of courage. Personal Courage. Protective Courage. Nourishing and Nurturing Courage. The kind that makes you step back and think for better or worse, I am doing the right thing for me HERE and NOW!  (it is the stuff that makes your primal self sit up straight and pay full attention – the proverbial drawing of the line in the sand; if you will.).

Guess what else? IT FELT GREAT!!!!

Edifying myself through the decisions I have consciously made in pursuit of my dream – honouring myself, as the hero of my journey, that was my lesson for this week : my beliefs and actions are my sole soul responsibility : I choose not to carry the burden of how others may interpret my decisions – I can be what I will to be.courage-disney

And so I leave you to ponder and reflect :

The mind may place the ideal a little too high and fall short of the mark; it may attempt to soar on untrained wings and instead of flying, fall to earth; but that is no reason for not making another attempt.

Wishing you all a week filled with amazing courage, of incredible insight and of healthful help .. as the true hero of your own journey  xx

Honour the Goddess Within … and remember: I Am. Courage.

Week 16: Kindness. Share Your Light.

Try A Little Kindness

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he’s sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and say, you’re going the wrong way
You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets
Don’t walk around the down and out
Lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day
Will help someone along their way
You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll

If you’re a kid of the 70s .. or a parent from that era, you may just have started humming or singing out aloud … to help you along, Try A Little Kindness .. check out the absolutely kick-arse riff 3/4 of the way through !  

your-light

Whether a little or a lot ..  when you give kindness you are consciously positioning yourself to be of service, and in service, to another : and that, my friends, is a true blessing for you are positively charging your energy flow and, as a by-product, elevating your personal zen.  A harmonious exchange occurs when you consciously connect to another person, through a mindful act of kindness, organically heightening your personal bliss!

Being part of an active global alliance focussed on conscious kindness was quite something else .. in fact, it was it and a bit to read the ever-occurring acts of kindness witnessed, observed and received from within the collective group; the impact of which left me with an overwhelming sense of gratitude in my fellow man – for the energy, frequency and vibration of like-minded individuals intent on stretching themselves and becoming the Hero of their Own Journey, and, synergistically, being a Hero for Another #Powerful xxoo

energy-frequency-and-vibration

The overriding concensus, as shared among my fellow participants of the Masterkey course experience, is that with the growing awareness of each act of kindness which each one of us was exposed to (either personally, or vicariously), the more acts and expressions of kindness we all became interconnected with and, resultingly, we were blessed with the grace of enjoying and participating in this cognitive, collective movement of energy 🙂

Grateful to have been a part of this most incredible awakening of collaborative universal awesomeness!

Week 15: There Is Value in All Rarity.

Difficulties, inharmonies, and obstacles, indicate that we are either refusing to give out what we no longer need, or refusing to accept what we require.

I am rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore, I am valuable.  
I have unlimited potential. 

Release from longheld misperceptions and thought – understanding that unlimited potential was always within and, more significantly, that one is worthy of receiving: I am grateful for this realisation and the power of my understanding and acceptance is true freedom from previous constraints.thinkgrowprosper

7.   All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth.

It is curious, to me, that the life challenges which continue to emerge (in all of their varied manner and form), do so until the lesson is learnt?!!    Talk about repeat patterning right?!

8.   That we reap what we sow is mathematically exact. img_3258
We gain permanent strength exactly to the extent of the effort required to overcome difficulties.

You reap what you sow : ain’t that the truth?!!  I think I am like most people when I suggest that this is a universal truth .. interestingly, that just like a boomerang, when thrown with definiteness of purpose, what we sow is what we will reap.  May we throw our boomerangs with conscious pure intent.

And nature knows not defeat. Eventually, she emerges victorious and so will I, and with each victory the next struggle becomes less difficult.
