WEEK 24 READY TO FLY

This is our last week of our incredible Journey to the Center of our Soul. For me this has been the beginning of a massive unlayering of years and years and years of unconscious thinking, false beliefs, old habitual patterns of keeping myself stuck in the void.  Week by week layer by layer revealed more and more layers of questions, confusion,  fear and  frustration as I pushed on deeper and deeper .

I’m not sure exactly when I started realizing it but  the deeper I got I gradually stopped feeling heavy and confused and began feeling lighter and lighter.   Somewhere in the last 4 months or so  I began to understand that there is an untapped power in me and what was even more exciting was I was beginning to see how I could actually learn to access it.

Although this is the last official week of the course it us just the beginning, as Mark says, it is a commencement, launching us into our new beginning.  I have a long way to go but I really feel very secure with the tools I  have learned to use to keep unlayering and chipping away at the cement revealing my wings.  I’ve always had wings now I’m finally ready to fly.

in deepest Gratitude to Mark, Davene and the entire staff and class of 2015 from the depths of my soul I thank you

WEEK 23 Gratefully Soaring to Greatness

As we get closer to the end of this incredible journey that is the MASTERKEY MASTERMIND ALLIANCE I  feel so GRATEFUL for all of the amazing new things I have learned, experienced and discovered about myself and WHY I do what I do  The MOST magnificent and EMPOWERING thing though is I have also learned HOW to change those bad habits and create new ways of thinking and being in the world.  My life has been forever changed for the better in countless wonderful, joyful  and inspiring ways thanks to this amazing course.

The BEST thing is this……IT IS ONLY THE BEGINNING !!!  I feel extremely well equipped to face any challenge that may come my way …in fact I embrace the challenges as well as the victories.   I have never felt this way before!   It is so FREEING knowing I have the tools to CREATE whatever I want.  Granted the tools are new to me and I do not know how to use them all YET but as I pick them up and turn them over and try them out I get more and more proficient at using them and in knowing which tools work best in different situations.

I must admit, however, I am a bit apprehensive about leaving the nest of this excpetional learning environment and at the same time I KNOW I am ready to fly. As my old blueprint continues to rear its ugly head  I may falter now and then but I will not fall, nor will I fail. I have a lifeline  ..and that is YOU, my magnificent MasterMind family working together supporting and encouragiong each other as we learn to harness our power, soar to greatness and help everyone we encounter do the same.

Peace be the Journey my friends.

It is 2:14 p.m. on Thursday and my journey begins! When I post this I will be on my way to silence. In silence we discover the power that we have within. I will return on Sunday and will expand on the experience! I’m loving everything about MKMMA and am uber excited about embarking on this adventure – tuning out the external distractions of the world and tuning into me!

I will surely update on my experience when I return.

Peace be with you. Stay tuned ….

WEEK 22A.

I have been thinking a lot about my DMP this week.  Although  I am excited about it, I am not OVER THE MOON really in sync and crazy happy to get at it every morning.  something is missing … In my sit today it came to me.  My head and my conscious mind is totally involved but my heart has not bought into it. I realized today that what I have been focusing on is the HOW I’m going to make it all happen.  I have been diligently immersed in the vehicle I believe will get me to my ideal life instead of just dreaming big and letting the universe figure out the how.

I decided this morning to read all 4 smart goals and listen…before reading the next one……what I discovered was I felt such joy,enthusiasm and light-hearted when I read the first two.  What surprised me was how I felt reading the other two … the ones related to the “How” of getting to my bliss….I felt very low energy and heavy hearted. What an eye opener that was for me!

Changing  those 2 smart goals to things that immediately light me up and bring me feelings of ecstacy was HUGE!!  I went from half committed to full tilt boogie in an hour!

I am eternally grateful to be on this journey with all of you and especially grateful for Mark, Davene and the entire MKMMA team.

To my brilliant and amazing guide and friend…Lydia  I thank you from the depths of my soul for your honesty, your  insights, your joyful spirit,  your patience and sincerity and most of all your unconditional friendship.  I feel so blessed to have you in my life.

In Gratitude

Linda

WEEK 22 WHO WILL I FIND IN THE SILENCE

This week in our MKMMA journey we are being challenged to do a 48 hour marathon of silence. Our usual routine of meditating 15 to 30 minutes a day has become a welcomed habit for me now.  I find such peace in those moments and often great insights come of it.  I have enjoyed it immensly.

Why then, I wonder, do I feel rather hesitant to accept the challenge of a 48 hour period of being alone with myself and my thoughts.  I have heard it said that our true intrinsic power can only be found in the silence. That who I really am is found just on the other side of my self impossed veil of forgetfulness.  I have forgotten who I am and why I am  here.  I have forgotten the gifts I have to offer  and my unique way of being of service, I have lost my power.

Wise ones have told us true power is not in the things we possess.  Our true power is in every positive thought,every courageous act, every moment of awe and wonder, every random act of kindness, every gift of the heart, our prayers, a helping hand,  encouraging comment , a smile.

It is in facing fear, it is an elusive knowingness that lives just beyond our comfort zone.  I can feel my power in that empty space in moments of sadness or despair. At some level I know it exists but it is elusive …where is it?   Do I just need to step over the threshold of pretending not to know my own greatness.  Deep inside me I know I do not  have to cross a chasm or leap off a cliff into the abyss to find it.

I just have to take one small step through the gossimer veil and it is mine.

That step can only be taken in the silence.  It is a thought away.  Who will I find in the silence?

WEEK 21 SHIFT HAPPENS

I am at a loss for words this week because there are so many things happening in my mind that there are no words for.  They are new awarenesses, feelings, ideas, pictures, thoughts, imaginings, awe, wonder, excitement, anticipation, lightness, confusion, hope, joy, peace, sadness, loss,  safe, unsafe, lost, found, whole, perfect, love, ecstacy, harmony, disharmony, questions, answers more questions  and on and on……I feel like I am growing and learning and changing and yet at the core I am still just me.  Maybe that is all I need to know I have always been  and always will be my unique self….the difference now is I am discovering the me inside the me I thought I was.  In this moment what I know for sure is  the more I shift the finer I become and this shifting is eternal.

I think I understand what Mark means when he says “Peace Be The Journey”

I am so grateful to be among such inspiring and amazing people on this Hero’s  Journey.

WEEK 20 WHAT A TRIP !

These past few days in MKMMA we have been reading about the inner power that exists in us all and how important it is to recognize our power within and that the only way to recognize it is in the Silence.  To still the senses, relax the muscles, cultivate repose.and eventually you will feel that sense of power within and that this inner power that we all have lies dormant in us and is of no valule to us unless we can recognize it and use it. I have been diligently practising this for weeks but have not really felt anything very powerful inside.

We have learned  that recognizing that power is the secret of all inspiration and that by thinking we can we can become conscious of that power but it has to be correct scientific thinking.

So if my reality is not one of joy, peace and abundance it is simply because the majority of my thoughts have not been of joy, peace and abundance.  “OK, ya, I already knew that.”

The natural law of the Universe is that our thoughts create our experience and  this law is unchangeable and works whether you know about it or not. “Ya, ok I knew that too”.

We have also learned that an intellectual understanding of this will be of no value until emotions are brought into action.  A thought without emotion is cold.  The combination of thought and feeling is required in order to recognize and use our  power within. “Ok, I hear the words but what does that really mean?”

Previously I really did think  I was thinking as I was reading these lessons but until this week I reallize that most of the time I was just reading the words and understanding them intellectually but felt no real emotion.  This week I have been focusing on truly thinking about what Haanel has to say in lesson 20 and what it means to me.  I focused on every word and thought hard about what it means and as I kept reading and really thinking I came to find so much more meaning in every  incredible phrase.

Then, what really surprised me, was that my emotions began to just flow naturally the more the words and messages sunk in, the more emotional I became !  I was very overwhelmed with the power of the written words and the emotions I was feeling …it was AWESOME!….”Ok, now this is a  TRIP… I’m really, liking this”!

This experience was HUGE ! Is this what it means to begin to recognize my power within? I felt so inspired and excited and extatic, it hit me that  I was reading and FEELING and accepting these incredibly powerful thoughts and those thoughts made me FEEL such joy, peace and abundance.

So I thought if READING such thoughts made me FEEL that way then how would THINKING those kinds of thoughts daily make me FEEL?.  Being that focused in every moment and making all my  thoughts that vital and powerful and positive would be amazing !  Why would I not put as much energy and laser focus into ensuring my everyday thoughts made me feel joyful , peaceful and abundant?

This physical and emotional  gut reaction I had has significantly changed my idea of what “Thinking Positivley ” really is…it isn’t about just thinking positive thoughts…there is no value at all in just saying positive words to yourself over and over and over ad nauseum in hopes of changing your reality. That doesn’t work.

We  have read and been told a  GAZILLION  times that you need to have FEELING  AND THOUGHT TOGETHER to create any changes in your life  but I guess I needed to hear it a Gazillion and one times.  I get now that  the magic happens ONLY when you are truly emotionally connected to those positive thoughts. I really didn’t know what “emotionally connected”  truly felt like until now.  It is a huge breakthrough for me!

WHAT A TRIP !
