Week 20 – Fear or Faith?

“Fear is a powerful form of thought. It paralyzes the nerve centers, thus affecting
the circulation of the blood.
This, in turn, paralyzes the muscular system, so that fear affects the entire being,
body, brain and nerve, physical, mental, and muscular.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XIX

This start of the Master Key nineteenth chapter made me think of this piece from Pink Floyd´s famous album “The Wall”.

What is it that causes fear to be so common?

Everybody knows that we´re only born with two fears:

  1. Fear of LOUD NOICES
  2. Fear of FALLING

So one must conclude that every other fear is learned behavior….

Where did we learn it?

media-imputs-fear-snark

Might it be that all the media input we receive everyday does actually NOT mirror the true state of this world?
That the human population is bombarded with negative images and messages just because they sell?
Or is it actually a way to control the population by paralyzing it through fear?

I leave it to You to chose the degree of conspiracy here….

You don´t need an enormous amount of critical thinking, though, to see that some counter measures are definitely potentially helpful!

Here are a few good ones to start:

We can all find the solution to living a life of FAITH and PURPOSE in our own thought, Haanel puts it into writing beautifully:

17. You may know that thought constantly, eternally is taking form, is forever seeking expression, or you may not, but the fact remains that if your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finance as lack and limitation, and in discordant conditions in your environment.
18. All wealth is the offspring of power; possessions are of value only as they confer power. Events are significant only as they affect power; all things represent certain forms and degrees of power.
19. A knowledge of cause and effect as shown by the laws governing steam, electricity, chemical affinity and gravitation enables men to plan courageously and to execute fearlessly. These laws are called Natural Laws, because they govern the physical world, but all power is not physical power; there is also mental power, and there is moral and spiritual power.
………
23. This power is superior because it exists on a higher plane, because it has enabled man to discover the law by which these wonderful forces of Nature could be harnessed and made to do the work of hundreds and thousands of men. It has enabled man to discover laws whereby time and space have been annihilated, and the law of gravitation overcome.
24. Thought is the vital force or energy which is being developed and which has produced such startling results in the last half century as to bring about a world which would be absolutely inconceivable to a man existing only 50 or 25 years ago. If such results have been secured by organizing these mental powerhouses in 50 years, what may not be expected in another 50 years?
25. The substance from which all things are created is infinite in quantity; we know that light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second, and we know that there are stars so remote that it takes light 2,000 years to reach us, and we know that such stars exist in all parts of the heaven; we know, too, that this light comes in waves, so that if the ether on which these waves travel was not continuous the light would fail to reach us; we can then only come to the conclusion that this substance, or ether, or raw material, is universally present.

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!

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?”

Week 14 – New Years Resolutions vs. Real Change

So, it´s that time of the year again… End of one year and soon the beginning of a new, at least according to our western concept of the calendar.

What is it that makes this time of the year so special in relation to change for so many people in our society?
What  is the real difference between January 1st and, let´s say, November 11th?
Is there even any real difference or just a perceived one?

Anyone in for a resolution this year? What will it be this time?

  • Eat healthy?
  • Loose weight?
  • Quit smoking?
  • Start training?

Lots of possibilities so…..  Will it work out?

Everyone know most New Years Resolutions don´t get realized – we might (and, believe me, I´ve been there and done that in past years…) hang in there for a few weeks or month and then “something” happens….we get of track and never seem to get on it again….until next New Year!

So, how come?

By making a resolution we basically start a war against ourselves, a war against chemical addiction that has been in place for years, maybe even decades! A war we have no chance of winning!

“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 Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

So, our New Year Resolution is the equivalent of trying to change the atmosphere by manipulating a weather vane – and that, I´m sure we can agree on, can never work!

Real change has it´s origin in the world within – a thought that´s coupled with feeling creates a certain belief that causes a specific action that produces a result.

“5. This puts us in an entirely new relation to our environment, opening up
possibilities previously undreamed of, and this by an orderly sequence of law which
is naturally involved in our new mental attitude.
6. Mind is creative and the principle upon which this 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 fountain of
all energy and substance, the individual is simply the channel for the distribution of
this energy. The individual is the means by which the Universal produces the
various combinations which result in the formation of phenomena.”
Charles Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

To create a different result we need to start with the thought and attach the feelings that build the belief supporting the action that needs to be taken to produce the desired result.
And that starts with deciding on a desired outcome, igniting this desire with feeling and thereby deliberately chose the belief that will lead to the action necessary to get the desired outcome.

“In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the differences of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure. Thus, the first law I will obey, which precedeth all others is – I will form good habits and become their slave.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, The Scroll marked I

“26. But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you
cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend
twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of
negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of
fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.
27. If you enter into the discipline necessary to bring about a radical change in your
life, you must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full
consideration, and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision.
28. This discipline, this change of thought, this mental attitude will not only bring
you the material things which are necessary for your highest and best welfare, but
will bring health and harmonious conditions generally.
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 Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

This brings us to the question why so many people live lives with resolutions and no real change and for me this was a two step process.

  1. I honestly didn´t know better
  2. I was not willing (yet) to put in the work – frankly, real change is hard work…

“I will never consider defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools. 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 ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.
I will persist until I succeed.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, The Scroll marked III

“I persist until I succeed!”

No room for a bail out here, backdoor closed, bridges burned…
No retreat, no surrender – I persist and I win!

“24. Yet there are many who are not ready to enter into the discipline necessary to
think correctly, even though it is evident that wrong thinking has brought failure.”
Charles Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

Week 13 – Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year!

Never before have these words rang as true with me as this year, never did they resonate so thoroughly with the center of my being, my heart and my soul!

“1. It has been the tendency, and, as might be proved, a necessity for science to
seek the explanation of everyday facts by a generalization of those others which
are less frequent and form the exception. Thus does the eruption of the volcano
manifest the heat which is continually at work in the interior of the earth and to
which the latter owes much of her configuration.
2. Thus does the lightning reveal a subtle power constantly busy to produce
changes in the inorganic world, and, as dead languages now seldom heard were
once ruling among the nations, so does a giant tooth in Siberia, or a fossil in the
depth of the earth, not only bear record of the evolution of past ages, but thereby
explains to us the origin of the hills and valleys which we inhabit today.
3. In this way a generalization of facts which are rare, strange, or form the
exception, has been the magnetic needle guiding to all the discoveries of inductive
science.
4. This method is founded upon reason and experience and thereby destroyed
superstition, precedent and conventionality.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 13

Now in the 13th week of the Master Key Experience I can look back and see why I feel that way and the answer lies in the “Law of Growth” faithfully applied and expressed in a POA (plan of action) executed daily and in the other techniques we´ve learned throughout this course.

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!

Skärmklipp 2014-12-25 18.50.39

“Part Thirteen which follows tells why the dreams of the dreamer come true. It explains the law of causation by which dreamers, inventors, authors, financiers, bring about the realization of their desires.
It explains the law by which the thing 
pictured upon our mind eventually becomes our own.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 13 Intro

So, dreams come true, and at some point during the last three or so months (and, frankly, I don´t think it happened at a single occasion)  this fact really took hold of me and permeated my being to the degree that I know that I know that I know this system works.
Not just for others but for me….

“18. What, then, is the proper method of procedure? What are we to think in orderEmerson_destined
to secure what we really desire? What you and I desire, what we all desire, what
every one is seeking, is Happiness and Harmony. If we can be truly happy we shall
have everything the world can give. If we are happy ourselves we can make others
happy.
19. But we cannot be happy unless we have, health, strength, congenial friends,
pleasant environment, sufficient supply, not only to take care of our necessities but
to provide for those comforts and luxuries to which we are entitled.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 13

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!

And, yes I am harmonious and I am happy – more now then I can remember I ever was before!
Probably there was a time during childhood, before the “concrete” and the “river of dreams” had worked there wicked magic, when I was in that natural, innocent state of innate happiness and harmony that is the birthright of everyone of us!
Then I lost “it”, as so many of us do, and it took all these years to rediscover that state to the degree I am at today, knowing that there´s nothing to fear, that there´s only good, that everything I can possibly want is possible to achieve. 

“23. Thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore creative, but make no mistake,
thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and
constructively directed; and herein is the difference between idle thinking, which is
simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically
unlimited achievement.
Emerson_what lies24. We have found that everything we get comes to us by the Law of Attraction. A
happy thought cannot exist in an unhappy consciousness; therefore the
consciousness must change, and, as the consciousness changes, all conditions
necessary to meet the changed consciousness must gradually change, in order to
meet the requirements of the new situation.
25. In creating a Mental Image or an Ideal, we are projecting a thought into the
Universal Substance from which all things are created. This Universal Substance is
Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. Are we to inform the Omniscient as to
the proper channel to be used to materialize our demand? Can the finite advise the
Infinite? This is the cause of failure; of every failure. We recognize the
Omnipresence of the Universal Substance, but we fail to appreciate the fact that
this substance is not only Omnipresent, but is Omnipotent and Omniscient, and
consequently will set causes in motion concerning which we may be entirely
ignorant.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 13

And that´s about what I´ve done these last few weeks and months, by following the instructions I´ve bombarded my subconscious mind, from every conceivably angle, with what I want!!!

No wonder this is a Merry Christmas!!!
It´s also a very Harmonious and Happy Christmas!!!

Week 11 – Change

“It is well, however, to remember that while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect in turn becomes a cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create still other causes; so that when you put the law of attraction into operation you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part 11

I´ve always had important knowledge come kind of backwards into my life, often I experienced something new and then later learned what it ment by reading about something similar or hearing it brought up in conversation.
Now I´m in this remarkable place of being honored with changing one of my PPN´s and I´ve had the feeling that this would be necessary for quite a while now and even discussed it with my guide as well as Mark this past weekend.
Since I first did the PPN exercise with Go90Grow in spring 2012 I´ve had not a shadow of a doubt the the oxygen of my soul consists of “Liberty” and “Autonomy”.
Just these last few weeks I started feeling less connected to the latter…

Monday morning it hit me:

“1. Inductive reasoning is the process of the objective mind by which we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the common factor that gives rise to them all.  2. Induction proceeds by comparison of facts; it is this method of studying nature which has resulted in the discovery of a reign of law which has marked an epoch in human progress.
3. It is the dividing line between superstition and intelligence; it has eliminated the elements of uncertainty and caprice from men’s lives and substituted law, reason, and certitude.
4. It is the “Watchman at the Gate” mentioned in a former lesson.
5. When, by virtue of this principle, the world to which the senses were accustomed had been revolutionized; when the sun had been arrested in his course, the apparently flat earth had been shaped into a ball and set whirling around him; when the inert matter had been resolved into active elements, and the universe presented itself wherever we directed the telescope and microscope, full of force, motion and life; we are constrained to ask by what possible means the delicate forms of organization in the midst of it are kept in order and repair.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part 11

So, lets look at Autonomy
Merriam-Webster (fittingly enough “An Encyclopaedia Brittanica Company”) says:

  1. the quality or state of being self-governingespecially :  the right of self-government
  2. self-directing freedom and especially moral independence
  3. a self-governing state
  4. the quality or state of being independent, free, and self-directing
  5. independence from the organism as a whole in the capacity of a part for growth, reactivity, or responsiveness

The blue parts would refer to an individual and here are the good news hidden…

Since we moved to Cyprus over a year ago I have appropriated that sort of freedom and independence for myself.

  • 2014-12-07 14.09.57I plan my days as I please (and not to far ahead) with no need to report to or confer with anyone in that regard except by my own choice as in case with my wife
  • There´s no place I need to show up at a certain time I haven´t deliberately chosen myself
  • I accept the full responsibility for my choices and live my life governed by integrity and moral values

So what basically bugged me for weeks was the feeling of striving for something that was already part of my life.
Just imagine for a moment, if You will, the power of the human mind and the material we´re working with here!

In the late spring of 2012 I was struggling in NWM, frustrated with my life and just starting getting really serious with a woman I didn´t feel worthy of at the time.
I stumbled onto Go90Grow, started with “Think&Grow Rich”, defined my PPN´s and started working on my DMP. Got my first draft rejected (yes, seriously, and rightly so – it was awful) by the Fabulous Davene, rewrote it quite a few times and finally got it straightened out enough to make it work.

Fast forward just 2,5 short years and I already incorporated one of my PPN´s into my every dayfollowbliss life, I´m married to that woman (my Marvelous Maria), we´re happier than ever and experience this Master Key together. My business is growing and I enjoy a degree of self esteem, peace of mind and faith towards my future that I never thought possible at that day in 2012 when I typed in my CC details.

Yet, I must have had this picture in my mind. And as murky, fuzzy and indefinite it was at times, still the benevolent laws of the universe amplified it to the extent that I now live it:

“18. We are first to believe that our desire has already been fulfilled, its
accomplishment will then follow. This is a concise direction for making use of the
creative power of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective mind, the
particular thing which we desire as an already existing fact.
19. We are thus thinking on the plane of the absolute and eliminating all
consideration of conditions or limitation and are planting a seed which, if left
undisturbed, will finally germinate into external fruition.
20. To review: Inductive reasoning is the process of the objective mind, by which
we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the
common factor that gives rise to them all. We see people in every civilized country
on the globe, securing results by some process which they do not seem to
understand themselves, and to which they usually attach more or less mystery. Our
reason is given to us for the purpose of ascertaining the law by which these results
are accomplished.
21. The operation of this thought process is seen in those fortunate natures that
possess everything that others must acquire by toil, who never have a struggle with
conscience because they always act correctly, and can never conduct themselves
otherwise than with tact, learn everything easily, complete everything they begin
with a happy knack, live in eternal harmony with themselves, without ever
reflecting much what they do, or ever experiencing difficulty or toil.
22. The fruit of this thought is, as it were, a gift of the gods, but a gift which few as
yet realize, appreciate, or understand. The recognition of the marvelous power
which is possessed by the mind under proper conditions and the fact that this
power can be utilized, directed, and made available for the solution of every human
problem is of transcendental importance.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part 11

And I´m immensely grateful being able to help a few people refining their DMP´s, returning the favor Dave did me back then and be of service to others who have their own journey in front of them.

Which again lets me experience before I learn, my new PPN “legacy”, has been growing increasingly more important in me. I´m honored and humbled to re-think, re-feel and re-write my DMP to embrace the change in me and how this affects my future self. Skärmklipp 2014-12-10 23.43.57
As a yellow my natural notion is to rush into this task and it just fills me with awe how brilliantly orchestrated this experience is as
I´d already planned a solo hike this coming weekend which now presents itself us the perfect opportunity to give this act of service to my future self the attention it needs.

Mahalo for taking the time to read this post, I appreciate You!

Week 8 – Visualizzzzze

visualizationThe second step in converting a thought or idea into reality is, according to Haanel,  visualization.
Of course this step is preceded by idealization, creating the idea of what I want to achieve, and followed by materialization, the natural result of visualization. In my understanding meaning that the image I hold in my mind does, if strong and emotionalized enough, fire signals in my subconscious mind that in turn trigger actions that effortlessly bring forth the desired results.

“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.”
Charles Haanel “The Master Key System” Part 8, Introduction

So the visualization process is important, even vitally important, to create the blueprint and inject the necessary emotions that stimulate the subconscious to attract the desired outcome. In other words, deciding what I want is not even close to enough, I need to SEE it and FEEL it to put the Law of Attraction to work for me.

“12. A builder cannot build a structure of any kind until he has first received the creative-visualization-for-art
plans from the architect, and the architect must get them from his imagination.
13. The Captain of Industry cannot build a giant corporation which may coordinate
hundreds of smaller corporations and thousands of employees, and utilize millions
of dollars of capital until he has first created the entire work in his imagination.
Objects in the material world are as clay in the potter’s hand; it is in the Master
Mind that the real things are created, and it is by the use of the imagination that
the work is done. In order to cultivate the imagination it must be exercised.
Exercise is necessary to cultivate mental muscle as well as physical muscle. It must
be supplied with nourishment or it cannot grow.”
Charles Haanel “The Master Key System” Part 8

And this is where I have gotten myself into trubbel, deep trubbel….

I cannot remember that I ever had a visual imagination, that I could willingly produce pictures in my mind of anything. Honestly I struggled hard with the photography exercise a few weeks ago, studying a picture of my Marvelous Maria from our wedding day and then finding myself utterly unable to see the picture of my beloved in my mind just seconds after I closed my eyes.
Without further contemplation I jumped to the conclusion that the gift of visualizing in my mind just wasn´t part of my talents and accepted that.

Well, this week taught me otherwise…

“15. Constructive imagination means mental labor, by some considered to be the
hardest kind of labor, but, if so, it yields the greatest returns, for all the great
things in life have come to men and women who had the capacity to think, to
imagine, and to make their dreams come true.”
Charles Haanel “The Master Key System” Part 8

So I just didn´t work hard enough to develop the faculty of visualization. Yet…

And even more concerning, I actually dug myself an ever deeper hole of “non-visualization-capacity” by accepting the difficulty as a permanent part of my make up.

“16. When you have become thoroughly conscious of the fact that Mind is the only
creative principle, that it is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, and that you
can consciously come into harmony with this Omnipotence through your power of
thought, you will have taken a long step in the right direction.
17. The next step is to place yourself in position to receive this power. As it is
Omnipresent, it must be within you. We know that this is so because we know that
all power is from within, but it must be developed, unfolded, cultivated; in order to
do this we must be receptive, and this receptivity is acquired just as physical
strength is gained, by exercise.
18. The law of attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions,
environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual,
characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think once in a while
when you are in church, or have just read a good book, BUT your predominant
mental attitude is what counts.”
Charles Haanel “The Master Key System” Part 8

When this hit me during one of the sits early this week (yes, my mind wandered away from the battleship) I felt just an incredible relief.
I had created this limitation and I could therefore remove it from myself.
I got strongly reminded of this quote by Henry Ford.

I'm Possible
Also I got reminded of Mark J´s take om the word “impossible” that impacted me so strongly at last years Go90Grow live event in Kauai, and that I somehow put aside in just this situation.

 

 

 

Needless to say my ability to visualization and use my imagination took a quantum leap upwards due to this insight and my decision to stop limiting myself and instead use positive affirmations before sitting. Telling myself that I´m a master of visualization has proved helpful and really improved the clarity of the images in my mind.

I´m fascinated by the power of the old blueprint in this regard, working so hard to survive by doing it´s worst to hold me back. Telling me lies that were so easy to believe, just because I heard them so many times.
The capacity to observe these processes in my mind and being able to voluntarily change the unconscious ideas and consciously choose the ideals I want to hold in my mind fills me with gratefulness.
The material of this course, the design and the wonderful service provided by the staff and guides has already made an immensely valuable progress in my life!

A few days ago my good friend Liselott, who went through the MK last year, asked me what the main take home was for me so far.
Without hesitating I answered that I just don´t sweat the small stuff anymore the way I used to – and that in it self is just wonderful!

So, until next week and beyond, build beautiful images in Your mind, be all that You will to beand greet this day with love in Your heart!

I sure will!
