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!
Who would have thought that by completing some of the assignments of the Master Key that I would get a better sleep and sleep longer? I certainly didn’t. This was a big surprise for me. I am certain it is due to my new nightly ritual of reading before bed and not watching TV. The funny thing is, that I look forward to the reading even if I am tired and I don’t miss the TV at night, at all. I think that because I am no longer hearing all the terrible things going on the in world my mind is calmer and I sleep better.
I also find myself waking up in the morning and wanting to get to my first assignment of the day – reading. I look forward to the new habit of reading my assignments first thing in the morning instead of getting on the computer. This is huge for me. For years the first thing I did in the morning was get something to drink and then get on the computer, check out Facebook, play a few games, check emails, check out Facebook again, play a few more games. Now I read. It is true that if you do something often enough, you will begin to enjoy it more, and then look forward to repeating it again and again. Replacing bad habits with good habits is a work in progress for me.
I am blown away by the information we receive from the MKMMA! Not only are we given valuable information and personal assignments from the webinars but we also have additional “how to” webinars about how to write blogs, how to use social media like Twitter, and many other topics. Just one of these things would be amazing but we also get personal guides to help us on our journey of discovery.
What is also amazing that we will be getting all this and more for the next 6 months. I don’t know of any other program that gives so much to participants. I look forward to seeing how this is going to change me and my life as I know it.
This is week one of the Master Key Mastermind Alliance. I think it is going to be quite the ride!
I have so many emotions as I begin to experience this mastermind that range from excitement to fear. I am excited because this program promises to help me through a process to the path of self-discovery. At the end of the course I should theoretically, be a changed woman, all for the best of course.
Then negative Nellie comes into my mind. What if I fail? What if I don’t have what it takes to make these changes? Do I really want to make the changes suggested? Apparently I will be held accountable to make the changes I say I am going to make. That scares me. I always keep promises I make to others, although not always that good at keeping promises to myself. This will mean I have to do what I say I am going to do.
I will also have to give up an old friend of mine called Procrastination. We are very close friends and I often let her call the shots and make the decisions on what I am going to do and not do. It will be very difficult to give up this friend because she makes things so easy for me. Often times, however, when I let her take over I end up feeling guilty that I let her have her way. I won’t miss the guilt.
The first challenge I have to cope with is my bedtime ritual. For decades, my husband and I have watched the news on TV when we go to bed and fall asleep to the sounds of The National. I have been advised that I have some reading to do before bed, which will take about an hour. After completing the reading I am not to engage in any digital devices – computer, smartphone or TV. Solution: I go to bed and read with my ear plugs in and then go to sleep with my sleep mask on. I, therefore, do not see the TV nor hear the TV,
The good news is that I will have a tremendous amount of support from the MKMMA team. We will have weekly webinars and I will have a personal guide to help me through the 6 month long process. All I have to do is follow the instructions.
