Master Key week 21 – They were right all the time!

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.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part XX

Finally, Wednesday morning February 17th 2016, I got it – I had read my BPB, DMPOurdeepestfearisnotthat, 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!

ThecaveyoufeartoenterAfter 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.”

Master Key Week 14 – Harmony Within

“I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure……
……I will try, and try, and try again.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” – The Scroll marked III

“The conscious and subconscious are but two phases of action in connection with one mind. The relation of the subconscious to the conscious is quite analogous to that existing between a weather vane and the atmosphere.
Just as the least pressure of the atmosphere causes an action on the part of the weather vane, so does the least thought entertained by the conscious mind produce within your subconscious mind action in exact proportion to the depth of feeling characterizing the thought and the intensity with which the thought is indulged.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part XIV introduction

“29. If you wish harmonious conditions in your life, you must develop an harmonious mental attitude.
30. Your world without will be a reflection of your world within.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part XIV 

Scroll III in the book by Og Mandino is all about persistence and not giving in to outer circumstances but to push on in the face of adversity and never, ever give in or give up.
And this is good, actually I would like to say it´s more than good – it´s great!

Especially as we know what persistence really is and how we can easily and joyfully create this habit in our lives though the first progression the Master Key Experience provided us with!

On the other hand every scholar of the Master Key System knows the importance of words and even more our choice of focus and that´s were I can see a potential challenge in Scroll III.

What is produced in our subconscious mind when reading about “toil and endure”?

Is there harmony within when thinking about “avoid despair”?

Or “try and try and try again”?

How does this relate to Haanels words in the introduction of Part XIII?

“Let me illustrate. Thought results in action, if your thought is constructive and harmonious, the result will be good; if your thought is destructive or inharmonious, the result will be evil.
There is therefore but one law, one principle, on cause, one Source of Power, and good and evil are simply words which have been coined to indicate the result of our action, or our compliance or non-compliance with this law. 
The importance of this is well illustrated in the lives of Emerson and Carlyle. Emerson loved the good and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony, Carlyle hated the bad, and his life was a record of perpetual discord and inharmony.
Here we have two grand men, each intent upon achieving the same ideal, but one makes use of constructive thought and is therefore in harmony with Natural Law, the other makes use of destructive thought and therefore brings upon himself discord of every kind and character.”

Well, I´ve been confronted with a really challenging situation in my personal life this past week and I´m so grateful for knowing not only how to handle any difficulty (by utilizing the laws of the mind) but especially to know what I am and what is the relation between me and the situation.
Without getting into details I thank the Master Key Experience for being equipped to live through a tough situation, that earlier would have taken weeks or even months to overcome, in mere days.

And that did not happen by focusing on avoiding those feelings, it happened by focusing on what would be the highest good for all involved. So far it worked awesomely well!

So, in the words of Master Yoda:

I start to think that if I feel I have to “try”, “avoid despair”, “toil” and “endure” – I really need to stop, feel and think before acting.
And then ask myself a few questions:

  • What am I focusing on? And what is the probable outcome of that focus?
  • Is that the outcome I´m looking for? The one I want?
  • What do I want? Really?
  • And how can I accomplish what I want without going through all the trying, toiling, enduring and despairing?

Can it be done?

That depends of course…

As said in the famous quote appointed to Henry Ford:

“If You think You can or think You can´t, You´re right!”

Believe!!! Do it now!!!

Marvelous Master Mind

While going through the MasterKeyExperience we are all encouraged to form a MMA (MasterMindAlliance) for ourselves and our Definiteness of Purpose along the lines with Napoleon Hills definition:
HillMastermindAllianceScroll
Everyone says that we often value things when we lost them and being on Cyprus now just a few days without my Marvelous Maria really makes that clear for me. As much as I appreciate and respect her wish to visit her father and family, I miss her presence more than I would have imagined.2015-07-17 13.37.41
And there it came to me, in the SIT this morning, we have the perfect MMA configured already, we just need to formally form it together!
Napoleon Hill writes in ”Outwitting the Devil” Chapter 12:
Q Which class of associates has the greatest influence upon one?
A One’s partner in marriage and in the home and one’s associates
in his occupation. After that come close friends and
acquaintances. Casual acquaintances and strangers have but
little influence on one.

It just makes sense to chose one or more of the people closest to us for our Master Mind!

Mr Hill continues:
Q Why does one’s partner in marriage have so great an influence
upon one’s mind?
A Because the relationship of marriage brings people under
the influence of spiritual forces of such weight that they
become dominating forces of the mind.
My wife is also my best friend, my accountability partner, my inspiration and the love of my life and while I miss her when she´s gone, at the same time I´m just overflowing with gratitude having her in my life.
Maria, You´re amazing and You inspire me daily – even when You don´t think You do – life is always lighter with You around!
I love You and look forward to spend the rest of our lives on track with our individual and common plans and purposes!
And to everyone reading this I wish You find Your marvelous MMA!

Week 23 – Emotions and health!

So, for technical reasons this is gonna be a quite short post – my MacBook fell to the floor last night and the screen stopped working…
I connected a projector and can sit looking at the wall instead of a screen, let´s say its a tad uncomfortable for the neck.

On the other hand I´m impressed with my calmness in the situation, once more it´s a pleasure to observe how my reactions have changed.

Especially considering this weeks theme in the MK, Haanel describes how our thoughts and emotions affect our health.

“7. We are all using this power every minute. The trouble is most of us are using it unconsciously and thus producing undesirable results. The problem is to use it intelligently and produce only desirable results. This should not be difficult, because we all have had sufficient experience to know what produces pleasant vibration in the body, and we also know the causes which produce the unpleasant and disagreeable sensations.
8. All that is necessary is to consult our own experience. When our thought has been uplifted, progressive, constructive, courageous, noble, kind or in any other way desirable, we have set in motion vibrations which brought about certain results. When our thought has been filled with envy, hatred, jealousy, criticism or any of the other thousand and one forms of discord, certain vibrations were set in motion which brought about certain other results of a different nature, and each of these rates of vibration, if kept up, crystallized in form. In the first case the result was mental, moral and physical health, and in the second case discord, inharmony and disease.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXII

Reading this it gets really obvious how a positive mental attitude does is not only good for business, it can literally be considered Life Saving!
Try the Mental Diet for Yourself and find out – just fill out the form to the right!

“13. The way to health is founded on the law of vibration, which is the basis of all science, and this law is brought into operation by the mind, the “world within.” It is a matter of individual effort and practice. Our world of power is within; if we are wise we shall not waste time and effort in trying to deal with effects as we find them in the “world without,” which is only an external, a reflection.
14. We shall always find the cause in the “world within”; by changing the cause, we change the effect.
15. Every cell in your body is intelligent and will respond to your direction. The cells are all creators and will create the exact pattern which you give them.
16. Therefore, when perfect images are placed before the subjective, the creative energies will build a perfect body.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXII

Week 19 – Stimulus – Choice – Response

So, I just the other day got seriously hit pretty hard by an experience leading to an insight that made me really ponder how far all this work has already got me!

My wife, the Marvelous Maria, and I were flying back to Larnaca from Stockholm and the flight schedule made us chose to stay one night in Athens rather than landing at 2AM in the morning, found a really nice hotel down at the waterfront and got a decent room, went for an early dinner and after the usual evening drill I went to bed at around 10.20PM.
In hindsight I know I had heard the guy in the next room for some time already, I just didn´t react being focused on he things at hand. Lying in bed I heard every word he said on the phone, he was literally yelling and seemed pretty upset about something.
Whatever, I just wrapped a towel around my waist, knocked at his door and asked him kindly to keep it down a little. Thinking that would do it I went back to bed and after a while it started all over again…
That guy got back on the phone, I got out of bed, same towel around the waist, knocking at the same door that got opened by the same guy telling me he´s not yelling at all but speaking in a normal tone of voice and not willing to keep it down for us to be able to sleep.

Drumroll….

Well, I just backed of, went down to the lobby and asked the guy at the reception to either go talk to my neighbor or give us another room – which he did (give us another room that is).

So, now what´s so special about this story (except me losing my self consciousness enough to move around “dressed” in a towel…)?

Not much, except that the person I was just months ago would have been provoked by the room neighbors behavior, picked up the glove and gotten into a loud and ugly argument (or worse)…
I was actually surprised that I didn´t even had to think about walking away, my ego didn´t even surface telling me that I was “right” and should “stand my ground” or some other BS that would have gotten me in trouble before!
My purpose was clear, I wanted us to be able to sleep undisturbed, and subconsciously I chose the fastest route to the accomplishment of this purpose!

Another (louder) DRUMROLL…

Just as the Master Key Experience taught me to!!!

This whole thing really works, isn´t that COOL???

Of course I knew that already (that it works, I mean), this was just the first time I was really blown away, before there have been subtle things like not worrying or getting upset about small things.
This time, for me, it was major – my subconscious mind actually reacted in a way that was diametrically opposed to how I would have reacted before and, more important, there was no conscious choice involved!!!
None was necessary and that´s what blows me away!!!

And so this experience at the hotel inspired some soul searching, it made me actually acknowledge how many positive changes I have made throughout this course so far – and there are still nine more weeks to go.
I will not get into details here, this is starting to become pretty lengthy as it is, let me just say that so much that was once hard is becoming easy, life has lost it´s roughness and become so much smoother, and I´m happier, more harmonious than before – most importantly I love myself, my life and the people in it, have gained knowledge of my power, developed the courage to dare and the faith to do!
Do what?
Nothing special – just live MY life, the life of my SELF – uncolored by anything but the desire in my heart to be the best I can be!
In what?
In service, to find the core of what I´m best suited to do and to execute those tasks with excellence!
Would You?

That´s how powerful this course is, guys and gals, and I wish it upon each and everyone I know – if You´re not in this time, the next launch is late September and You just need to leave Your name and email at the end of this post to get on the list for early notification.

And, it´s a pay-it-forward scholarship – You´re in the course for a buck!
Why not try it out???

So, let´s end this with some favorite parts of this weeks readings:

“11. It is the recognition of the self as an individualization of this Universal Intelligence that enables the individual to control those forms of intelligence which have not yet reached this level of self-recognition; they do not know that this Universal Intelligence permeates all things ready to be called into action; they do not know that it is responsive to every demand, and they are therefore in bondage to the law of their own being.
12. Thought is creative and the principle on which the law is based is sound and legitimate and is inherent in the nature of things; but this creative power does not originate in the individual, but in the universal, which is the source and foundation of all energy and substance; the individual is simply the channel for the distribution of this energy.
13. The individual is simply the means by which the universal produces the various combinations which result in the formation of phenomena, which depends upon the law of vibration, whereby various rates of rapidity of motion in the primary substance form new substances only in certain exact numerical ratios.
……
20. So with understanding; men are continually making progress in the methods which they use to come into communication with the Universal Mind and its infinite possibilities.
21. The Universal Mind manifests itself in the objective, through the principle of attraction that each atom has for every other atom, in infinite degrees of intensity.
22. It is by this principle of combining and attracting that things are brought together. This principle is of universal application and is the sole means whereby the purpose of existence is carried into effect.
……
28. The Universal Mind is static Mind or Substance in equilibrium. It is differentiated into form by our power to think. Thought is the dynamic phase of mind.
29. Power depends upon consciousness of power; unless we use it, we shall lose it, and unless we are conscious of it, we cannot use it.
30. The use of this power depends upon attention; the degree of attention determines our capacity for the acquirement of knowledge which is another name for power.
31. Attention has been held to be the distinguishing mark of genius. The cultivation of attention depends upon practice.
32. The incentive of attention is interest; the greater the interest, the greater the attention; the greater the attention, the greater the interest, action and reaction; begin by paying attention; before long you will have aroused interest; this interest will attract more attention, and this attention will produce more interest, and so on. This practice will enable you to cultivate the power of attention.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XVIII

For me it all, once more, boils down to Love because it´s very easy to be interested in something we love. And interest leads to attention which brings the object of our interest into our lives through manifestation!

To Believe or not to Believe

Week 16 – To Believe or not to Believe…

Kindness

This week we´re focusing on kindness in the Master Key Experience, kindness that we observe around us and also our own kindness to others.
The effects are remarkable, already after a few days I felt more harmonious, happy and content with my life!
Of course it seems obvious now that this resource for happiness was always there for the taking, I just did not consider it until suggested in the MK.
I hadn´t thought of it, it was not part of my beliefs which leads us to the main topic of this post….
I remember a question I read many years ago in a blog post by Randy Gage:

“Does this belief serve me?”

As my life at the time was far from where I wanted it to be, I know the answer was: NO!!!

Challenges:

  1. I didn´t know what belief didn´t serve me…belief3
  2. I didn´t know what belief would serve me…
  3. If I had I woulnd´t have known how to change it…

That´s kinda defines the term tough luck…

Years later I took the Go90Grow course and in the “Think & Grow Rich” part of it I learned how a THOUGHT charged by FEELING create a BELIEF that causes an ACTION which produces a RESULT

BLUEPRINT

So this brought up as many questions as there were given answers:

  1. What results do I strive for?
  2. What actions are necessary to perform to produce those results?
  3. What beliefs do I need to create that will trigger the necessary actions?
  4. What feelings need to charge my thoughts?
  5. What thoughts do I need to entertain?

And that helped a lot!

So where do I go with this?Always do_

Well, there is probably as many answers to that question as there are people reading this blog post. Everyone has, or at least should have, different answers to the questions above and that goes for the last one as well.

The reason for that is that we have to DECIDE!!!

Decide what we want! What we need to do to get it! What we have to give up! What we are willing to give up to reach our dream! Decide what feelings we want to feel, what emotions we want to experience!

Remember: DMP + PMA + WPOA + MMA

And then… Determine what is the  discrepancy between where we are and where we want to be!

“The difference between my current reality and my vision is defined by the gap between the person I am and the person I am becoming!”

And the gap can only be closed by thoughts, which means we are in total control of closing it!!!

“17. Therefore, to control thought is to control circumstances, conditions,
environment, and destiny.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 16

Screenshot 2014-01-11 23.08.47

So lets go about that:

“18. How then are we to control thought; what is the process? To think is to create a
thought, but the result of the thought will depend upon its form, its quality and its
vitality.
19. The form will depend upon the mental images from which it emanates; this will
depend upon the depth of the impression, the predominance of the idea, the clarity
of the vision, the boldness of the image.
20. The quality depends upon its substance, and this depends upon the material of
which the mind is composed; if this material has been woven from thoughts of
vigor, strength, courage, determination, the thought will possess these qualities.
21. And finally, the vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is
impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life,
it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything
necessary for its complete development.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 16

So let us connect back to “belief”:

Skärmklipp 2015-01-17 00.12.50
(click on the pic for expanded view)

What this tells us is that the word stems from the verb “leubh”: to care, desire, like, love(!)

So do You LOVE Your DMP???

Of course You do!!!

And that´s all it takes, remember:
a THOUGHT charged by FEELING create a BELIEF that causes an ACTION which produces a RESULT

Week 15 – Creature or Creator?

“I am a unique creature of nature.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, Scroll 4

What if we change a few characters in that sentence?

“I am a unique creator of nature.”

A) Is this a typo in the book?
B) Did Mandino make a misstake?
C) Is it intended? To make the reader think?
D) None of the above?

Your answer is as good as mine!

Lets look at some additional information:

“11. It is love which imparts vitality to thought and thus enables it to germinate. The
law of attraction, or the law of love, for they are one and the same, will bring to it
the necessary material for its growth and maturity.”….

….”20. We know that the Universal Thought has for its goal the creation of form, and
we know that the individual thought is likewise forever attempting to express itself
in form, and we know that the word is a thought form, and a sentence is a
combination of thought forms, therefore, if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or
strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be
created are exact, that they are put together carefully, because accuracy in building
words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a
passport to success.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 15

In my understanding the combined meaning of point 11 and 20 is that we attract what we love by the process of thinking, consciously or unconsciously, of the things we love and wrap these thoughts in words that form the bricks of our temple of creation!

OMG, this is how important out habitual thoughts really are – am I happy for the mental diet, the flashcards, shapes, my DMP, POA etc…

“Life gives no one immunity against adversity, but life gives to everyone the power of positive thought, which is sufficient to master all circumstances of adversity and convert them into benefits. The individual is left with the privilege of using or neglecting to use his prerogative right to think his way through all adversities. Every individual is forced either to use his thought power for the attainment of definite, positive ends, or by neglect or design use this power for the attainment of negative ends. There can be no compromise, no refusal to use the mind.”
Napoleon Hill, “Outwitting the Devil”

“8. This, then, is the way we are consistently creating and recreating ourselves; we are today the result of our past thinking, and we shall be what we are thinking today, the Law of Attraction is bringing to us, not the things we should like, or the things we wish for, or the things some one else has, but it brings us “our own,” the things which we have created by our thought processes, whether consciously or unconsciously. Unfortunately, many of us are creating these things unconsciously.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 5

I could probably quote us all to boredom here and I hope You´re ok with me presuming You get the point.
We are creators of nature as well as creatures of nature and with that we are creators of us creatures of nature.

You, I and everyone else on this planet is unique, unexchangeable and irreplaceable!  

“…for why should the miracle which produced me end with my birth? Why can I not extend that miracle to my deeds of today?”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, Scroll 4
