What I am liking the most about the Master Key is that it\’s giving me a framework for diligent effort toward concepts that I have understood and practiced on some level my whole life, but never really read about on paper.
I may not be the most typcial case, #1 I married my high school sweetheart and I just reminded him last night that I remember a feeling of actual energy that connected us at the first party we were at together. We have remained connected since 1993 and now have 3 kids, living in NYC (soon to be the Upper Delaware Scenic Area in NY State!). And #2 I was also just telling a friend this story this week who has known me for 15 years and didn\’t realize this: my original parents were divorced when I was 8 years old (but stayed in close proximity and I visited with my dad every weekend), each underwent personal transformation–after my mom got remarried and then found her way, and my dad quit drinking cold turkey–they were remarried to each other again when I was in 9th grade, 6 years after the divorce!
This Master Key experience for me is about piecing all of these things together and trying to understand what are the pivotal experienes that have made me who I am. I have always been able to think something really intentionally and then make it happen. There are at least 5 big times in my life I can recall this–that will be for a future post!
Side note: tons of conicidences continue to happen. This morning I was walking to meet a friend and thought to myself that I wished I had grabbed a tissue for my pocket, I look down not 1 minute later and there is a neatly rolled up piece of paper towel in the middle of the sidewalk. Not that I was desperate enough to pick it up, but I have to say that\’s the most immediate manifestation I have ever realized!
But for now, what I find interesting is that just prior to starting Master Key, I signed up to be a trainer for my MLM team\’s Wednesday Wisdom talks. We had to choose topics, mine is tonight, and I kid you not, I chose this topic: \”Setting Good Intention: Goals & Manifesting what we want in Life & Business\”.
This is crazy for me to read right now, but I just found the email I wrote on Sept 13th:
I\’m in Grand Rapids airport heading home!!
I would love to talk about setting intention for a goal and manifesting what we want in life and business. The 3rd week or 4th week in October are good for me if that works.
THANK YOU & much LOVE!!
Then I just searched in my inbox and it was a Sept 19th email from Mark J. that got me to watch the intro videos. This was his subject line: I\’m Calling You Out… and Up [Especially Skeptics] and he started out saying he was just getting back in after walking the dogs.
And the rest is history as it currently unfolds!
To backtrack on the timeline a bit more, this is what I now think inspired my email to Brooke for my training topic (though honestly I never thought about talking to anyone about the power I was seeing take shape from mental function): The Shaklee Global Conference in Atlanta was Aug 9-13 and had the theme \”Breakthrough\”; we had an amazing group board breaking with Brian Biro. Knowing we were heading into a powerful experience, as my husband, kids and I were driving into Atlanta on Aug 9th, I drew a picture of the country place we were aiming for. Having already seen a few places but nothing having \”clicked\” yet, we wrote down what the main items were: 50+ acres, house, barn, shop, pool. I never showed it to my husband, but then it was Aug 26th that we saw the house and property that we are now in the process of buying. It has 66 acres, a renovated farm house, garage, shop, pool and 4 more outbuildings. When I showed my husband on August 26th the picture that I had drawn Aug 9th as we were heading into Atlanta, he thought I had just drawn it, and didn\’t realize it was our joint vision that we wrote down two weeks before. The dream is taking shape!
These are my most favorite Master Key concepts so far:
2. Golden Buddah methaphor
3. What you are shouts so loud I can hardly hear you!
4. On the Hero\’s Journey, we are heralded into the unknown
And from Haanel, 4:13 this week: Wow! \”…many men and women have found to their sorrow that it is easier to control a kingdom than to control themselves.\” It really strikes me and another conincidence? 413 is my birthday and lucky number!
The 15-minute sit is so powerful and it\’s my new homework for everyone I meet who wants to make change in their life, or just be happier.
Thank you all for reading!
p.s. Just left the house with my kids to buy an ice cream from the Mister Tasty truck with their piggy bank coin savings, and as I was saying we were heading out for ice cream, our very sweet older neighbor Lucy was at the elevator, heard me and handed the kids 3 fudge ice pops! Then as we left the building, the bag of coins spilled and the ice cream truck drove away. We wouldn\’t have made it to the the truck in time, but Lucy intervened to provide what we were seeking at just the right moment.
