Years ago I was asked to do this exercise and I´ll tell You my results in a second or two – just, please let me ask You to try it for Yourself!
It´s very easy – just complete the following sentence with what first comes to Your mind:
It doesn´t matter what I do, it´s still never……………!
Most people fill out the blank with either “enough” or “good enough”, meaning we are conditioned to feel inferior about ourselves in either a quantitative or qualitative way!
In my case it was both…OUCH!!!
Going through the Master Key Experience significantly helped and I even tried to tell myself that I had overcome those feelings (interesting way of lying to myself to avoid responsibility) and used affirmations daily to influence my subconscious yet I still had this gnawing feeling of having to do, perform and produce in order to really be worthy.
And it didn´t matter what I heard from other people, how much praise I received or how many times I succeeded.
My recent divorce brought the issue back to surface and I was forced to deal with it for real, problem was: I had no idea how…
I, who normally sleep very well, have experienced real problems sleeping for weeks. Falling asleep in the evening was ok (after staying up until I was really tired…) yet then I woke up after 3-4 hours unable to go back to sleep.
To sleep a full night was only possible after over consumption of alcohol and that´s just not sustainable even if I must admit it has happened (how else would I know 😉 )
After 5-6 weeks of this I got the idea during a Sit to contact my friend and fellow MK guide, Cassandra O´Neal, who is an amazing Pranic Healing Master and taught me some techniques to deal with my sleep issues.
And then it happened:
“8. When you begin to perceive that the essence of the Universal is within yourself — is you — you begin to do things; you begin to feel your power; it is the fuel which fires the imagination; which lights the torch of inspiration; which gives vitality to thought; which enables you to connect with all the invisible forces of the Universe. It is this power which will enable you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully.
9. But perception will come only in the Silence; this seems to be the condition required for all great purposes. You are a visualizing entity. Imagination is your workshop. It is here that your ideal is to be visualized.
14. To become inspired means to get out of the beaten path, out of the rut, because extraordinary results require extraordinary means. When we come into a recognition of the Unity of all things and that the source of all power is within, we tap the source of inspiration.
15. Inspiration is the art of imbibing, the art of self-realization; the art of adjusting the individual mind to that of the Universal Mind; the art of attaching the proper mechanism to the source of all power; the art of differentiating the formless into form; the art of becoming a channel for the flow of Infinite Wisdom; the art of visualizing perfection; the art of realizing the omnipresence of Omnipotence.”

Finally, Wednesday morning February 17th 2016, I got it – I had read my BPB, DMP, POA, the Law of Giving, this months Scroll and this weeks Haanel chapter and I was preparing for my Sit as I was suddenly overflown with a feeling of being at peace with myself and the world, finding myself at the perfect time and space, experiencing a oneness with the universe and the incomparably comforting sensation of being exactly what and who I´m supposed to be.
The following Sit was amazing as every Sit since – a feeling of immense connection, understanding and peace that lingers on through the day!
And most important to me, I don´t need to fight myself anymore, the struggle is gone, the wolfs stopped fighting and I´m moving in the direction I want with ease.
In the evening when Maria stopped by to see the cats and have a meal with us, I experienced a sense of peace and detachement from the hurts and an immense feeling of gratitude for all the good memories I gained throughout our relationship. Amazing!
After all these years on the journey of self discovery and development I found that when I finally took a good look at myself I did not find what I expected.
I actually was surprised by not finding the inadequate and inferior being I still suspected to encounter 😉
Needless to say I´ve not been walking around in a constant state of bliss since, things happen and I admit to a tendency to forget over and over what I saw in myself that moment.
Still there´s a feeling of lightness, peace and joy, like somebody lifted a heavy, moist blanket from my life that I didn´t even know I was carrying around.
And, as I return to the real state of light, love and bliss with ease, the guy in the glass is developing into a good old friend!
I just love this weeks exercise from Haanel and would like to share it with You here:
“31. For your exercise this week, go into the Silence and concentrate on the fact that “In him we live and move and have our being” is literally and scientifically exact! That you ARE because He IS, that if He is Omnipresent He must be in you. That if He is all in all you must be in Him! That He is Spirit and you are made in “His image and likeness” and that the only difference between His spirit and your spirit is one of degree, that a part must be the same in kind and quality as the whole. When you can realize this clearly you will have found the secret of the creative power of thought, you will have found the origin of both good and evil, you will have found the secret of the wonderful power of concentration, you will have found the key to the solution of every problem whether physical, financial, or environmental.”
Thank You for taking the time reading this post, please let me know Your thoughts by leaving a comment below and share this with friends and loved ones who might benefit!
Mahalo, I appreciate You!!!
