Week 9 Master Key Experience: Health, Wealth and Love

Haanel says, “The three things which all mankind desires and which are necessary for his highest expression and complete development are Health, Wealth and Love.”

Wealth is something that is be measured differently by different people depending on their circumstances.  For the Syrian refugees, wealth may be simply enough to pay for a safe place to live, clothes to wear and food on the table in a country free from war.  Many of us in the Western world view wealth as something that allows us take part in activities that make us happy.  We might like to buy expensive gifts, live in elaborate houses with the best of furniture, go on lavish vacations and eat out at the best restaurants. For some of us, wealth is somewhere between the 2 extremes.

What is Wealth, however, without good health?  Regardless of which of the above scenarios you find yourself in, health issues can rule your life.  Steve Jobs had wealth but I am certain he would have traded all of it for good health.  Unfortunately some people are unfortunate to be lacking in health and wealth.  Those of us who have their basic financial needs met and do not suffer from major illness should be grateful every day for what we have.

imageSo what if we had Wealth and Health and didn’t have Love in our lives?  I would think that would be the most devastating of all scenarios.  Many can survive lack of money and even good health if they are feeling the love of family and friends.

It is said that visualization of what we want helps us get what we want.  We attract to ourselves that which we think about most.  The answer then is to visualize the health we want the wealth that is appropriate for us and of course, love.

In order to get more love in our lives we have to give more to get more.  We have to get rid of all the negative thoughts about others and replace those thoughts with positive ones.  We can find the good in all if we look hard enough.  Love can be shown in the simplest of ways.  A compliment, doing something for others, hugs. This is what I am practicing this week and it makes me feel fantastic.

An example of a simple act of love is when I told my pharmacist that she had beautiful eyes.  She said I made her day.  If we all went about showing love to others, what a wonderful world this would be!

A powerful affirmation which can work on attracting health, wealth and love is one Haanel suggests, “I’m whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.”  This has become my daily affirmation because that is what I want in my life and for those around me.

Let’s all try to give more love to all around us and make this world a better place.

Week 8 Masterkey Experience My Two Friends

I have 2 friends, I will just call them Nellie and Penny.  They are very different.  If you ask Penny “How are you today?” she will answer with a smile, saying, “Great!  And you?” If you ask Nellie the same question, you will get “Could be better.”

Penny sees the positive in everything around her, the weather, her life, her children, her husband, her friends.  Nellie on the other hand, is full of complaints.  It is too hot or too cold, her husband is home too much or he is never home.  Penny is grateful for everything in her life, Nellie can’t think of anything to be grateful for. Penny tells me I am smart and that I always do my best.  Nellie tells me I never do anything right and that I shouldn’t even try.  Penny tells me I can be whatever I want to be; Nellie tells me I can’t succeed at anything and I shouldn’t even try.

Penny and Nellie don’t get along very well.  Whatever Penny says, Nellie finds fault with it.  Penny tries to get Nellie to focus on the more positive things in life and sometimes she succeeds, sometimes Nellie brings Penny down to her level.

0022I really don’t like Nellie very much and I think it is time to kick her to the curb.  I much prefer to have Penny around, and I know everyone else in my life feels the same way. The problem with my two friends is that they both live in my mind.  I know that according to the Seven Laws of the Mind, “We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.” I am concentrating on keeping Positive Penny alive and well in my mind and I am ignoring Negative Nellie and replacing her with Penny.  It might not seem like an easy thing to accomplish but I am sure with the help of Penny, I will get it done.

happy-flowers (1)I have given up TV and computer games for a week. I have also severely limited my Facebook time.  This has not been as difficult as I had thought.  The end result is that I have more time to spend on the things I really want to do and always thought I didn’t have time for. Positive Penny has helped me stay on track.

Week 7 Master Key Experience – Believe

A couple of weeks ago on one of the webinars, Davene talked about how uncanny it was to receive a parcel with a wooden sign that said “Believe” after Mark started signing his name Believe, Mark J.  It showed us how the universe works in mysteries ways.

Last week we had to go to Winnipeg for 2 appointments, one on Wednesday evening, one Thursday morning.  It is about a 3 hour drive one way so we stayed overnight on Wednesday.  I did all my reading assignments Wednesday reading to myself and reading out loud. Thursday morning time slipped away from me and I didn’t get any of my readings done.  We went to my morning appointment and then went shopping before we headed for home.

All morning I thought about the fact that I still hadn’t got my any of my assignments done.  I fretted about it and I wondered if it mattered.  I wondered if any of our assignments mattered.  Did any of this make sense?  Does it work?  Why am I doing this?

On the way home I wanted to stop at a particular restaurant for lunch, but my husband saw another restaurant and suggested we eat there, which was fine with me.  As soon as we walked into the restaurant I saw the sign on top of the dessert display case.  In big letters about a foot tall was the word BELIEVE.  How uncanny was that?

What I took away with this message is that everything  we are doing in the Master Key Experience is for our benefit.  Any time I start to feel discouraged, I think about that sign.  I have a picture of it on my poster so that I can remember to believe in the process.

This week’s assignment appeared to be a bit of a technical challenge for me. I was to record my Definite Major Purpose in life along with some other affirmations.  I was to record it over music, but I had a challenge with time.  I felt that maybe this was one assignment I might miss. Then I remembered the episode from last week, which gave me the motivation to find another solution.  I found a recording app for my iPhone called “Recorder” then searched the internet for Baroque music.  I found Moonlight Sonata, which I have always enjoyed, and it was the full version at 15 minutes.  It was perfect.  I was able to pause the recording when the music was about to stop and then replay the music and record.  I am very happy with the end result.

All you have to do is believe!

 

Week 6 Love and Opinions

In week 6, I am concentrating on loving everyone. I am also still concentrating on limiting or  eliminating my opinion on things and others.  Both are a work in progress and perhaps will be a work in progress for a lifetime.

086When I look at the generations of my family – my children my grandchildren and great grandchildren there is a vast difference between the amount of opinions given and received based on the generation they belong to. I also notice that opinions are varied and there are more of them  in the older generations. I watch the great grandchildren play and smile and laugh and give their love freely to others.  They just want to love and be loved.  I also notice that they don’t have so many opinions, unless it is that some vegetables taste yucky.

I think it is with age that we develop more and more opinions and not necessarily always the good ones. It appears that maybe our mind narrows and we have difficulty keeping up with the times, times which can be scary with all the new newfangled things out there like technology. I think part of the problem is  probably because of the vast amount of experience the older generations have;  and then I am reminded by Mandino that, “The value of experience is overrated usually by old men who nod wisely and speak stupidly.” Perhaps experience is not always our best friend th (6)and perhaps we should look towards the younger generations who have little or no opinions and lots of love to give and receive.

I want to be like a child again.  I have a lot of work to do!
