3 MKMMA – Week 25 – To live with Regret … or not

article-2486890-16673F38000005DC-750_306x465“It's your funeral”, they said, as I announced the decision to do something awesome (and scared even me a little…).  Something that would not only build a future for me and ‘generations to come' – but it just might let be a little bit LEGENDARY (at least in my little corner of the world).

“What will your parents think of you, giving it all up for…that…”

“How will you ever recover, giving it all up like that, ….if it doesn't work?!?”

“Your kids will never forgive you for taking them away from their friends – right in the middle of, well… everything!”

“Is your wife on board with this mid-life crisis of yours?”


 

We've heard it all before right? At least once or twice…AT LEAST.

And we – all the MKMMA-ers left in here – have actually LISTENED before, maybe even TAKEN that unasked for and well-intentioned mis-direction…

But one thing we have learned to bring up when we need a kick in the pants is that NARC on our side – here, take a little peek at mine if you have no idea what that is:

“There I am, lying in that light blue, cotton “night-gown” (slightly ajar in the rear…) – unable to speak, maybe even unable to move quite right…but fully AWARE of everything going on around me.

Crappy thing is? I'm not even 50!! Damn it – I had 60..70 YEARS ahead of me… and now?  All my dreams – that I had kept polished and ‘out there' where I could look at them, (day)Dream about them…maybe even talk about that mythical SOME-DAY when they wouldn't be “on a shelf” or “in my head” any longer…

Yeah, those dreams…

REALLY go all out on that 25th Anniversary…

Being able to gift your kids the Wedding of their dreams,

…help them move into their first house (and not by carrying boxes!)

Fly half-way round the planet on your next birthday – just because…

Take your kids to LUNCH…in a different state! (and not just the one next door)

hell – you know it's in there…being able to DO NOTHING for a couple of days because you felt like it (and not worry about ANY freaking bills..)

pi1

But .. I listened once too often to the MUST'NTs

one time too many to the DON'Ts

And here I am – in this lonely bed, trapped inside my very own head.  No way to say even one…more… “I Love You”

No way to hug that little one at the foot of your bed…

I heard every word of the NEVER HAVE's… and now I certainly know what it's like … to be among the WON'Ts…


 

But thank you Lord, and Mark, and Davene… all you guys who taught us to train our minds, to think upon not just the MIGHT's or if the “WHAT IF'S”, but to do the hardest work of all…that of getting out of our own way and really vizualising the DREAMs.

563259_10151504564265109_186222545108_23634084_1358628207_n1Guys – if you're reading this and that glimpse into my NARC-side hit's a little too close to home? You have GOT to come with on the next trip – take the hero's journey with us:

Join the MKMMA … NOW! so you don't regret another decision in your life…

‘Cause if you listen close to me….

ANYTHING can happen…

ANYTHING – CAN – BE!

 

 

1 Week #24- Guiding the Way

lighthouse 1All throughout the Master Key Experience, I have wanted to share it with everyone.  Who wouldn't benefit from what we have learned.  Everyone should follow their dreams and discover their authentic self.  Not everyone will be ready for this journey, but I want to help those who are.  I know one Compassway I can do this is to direct them to the launch in September, but that seems so far away.  I want to be able to help them right now.

As I was reading Master Key 24, these passages impacted me and showed me that all though they cannot begin the Master Key experience until this fall, because we are ALL linked through the Universal, I can help them be draw to self discovery, their dreams, and the course.

Master Key 24:13 – If you desire to help someone, to destroy some for of lack, limitation or error, the correct method is not to think of the person whom you wish to help; the intention to help them is entirely sufficient, as this puts you in mental touch with the person.  Then drive out of your own mind any belief of lack, limitation, disease, danger, difficulty, or whatever the difficulty might be.  As soon as you have succeeded in doing this the result will have been accomplished, and the person will be free.

Master Key 24:27- The difficulty with which you have to contend is to realize that mind is not individual.  It is omnipresent.  It exists everywhere.  In other words, there is no place where it is not.  It is therefore Universal.

And by understanding the following truths and having the intention to help others be lead to these truths, I can help lead them to their own Heroes Journey.

Master Key 24:15- All thought is a form of energy, a rate of vibration, but a thought of the Truth is the highest rate of vibration known and consequently destroys every form of error in exactly the same way that light destroys the darkness; no form of error can exist when the “Truth” appears, so that your entire mental work consists of coming into an understanding of the Truth.  This will enable you to overcome every form of lack, limitation, or disease of any kind.

There are two ways

Master Key 24:17- To train the mind to see the Truth only is to express true conditions only, our ability to do this will be an indication as to the progress we are making.

Master Key 24:19 …Your life and your actions and you r influence in the world will depend upon the degree of truth which you are enabled to perceive, for the truth will not manifest in creeds, but in conduct.

The thoughts that wire together fire together.  This principle is one of the first we learned in the course. Since the Universal is omnipresent and omniscient,  we can channel these thoughts through the Universal to others.  So, until I can get people to actually apply for the MKE, I will recommend, share my experience, and praise this course.  I will also work with my subconscious and the Universal and help those who are open to it, to be drawn to reach for their dreams and seek self discovery.

2 MKMMA – Week 24 – Skidding into the end… Hair on Fire!!

hotel-windsor-melbourne-afternoon-tea-cakes-2-534x800

The Total Perspective Vortex derives its picture of the whole Universe on the principle of extrapolated matter analyses. To explain — since every piece of matter in the Universe is in some way affected by every other piece of matter in the Universe, it is in theory possible to extrapolate the whole of creation — every sun, every planet, their orbits, their composition and their economic and social history from, say, one small piece of fairy cake.

What does it all mean?!

As we enter into the last few weeks of the MKMMA course, I was reflecting on what essential bits of -core- knowledge I saw as the major take-aways? What was it that I devoted 6 months of my life – and quite a few near sleepless ones to boot – to LEARN??

It has most certainly been an education on many fronts:

  • I discovered that I do actually have the discipline to make it all the way through the course
  • But … I do not, currently, have the discipline – or at least the complete belief in myself – necessary to perform beyond (my) expectations in the course
  • There is a LOT more depth to the philosophy in the course than the ‘Simple P.M.A.' espoused by success Guru's
  • It's actually enjoyable – and extremely “mini-vacation like- relaxing to catch more than one ‘Sit' in a day
  • And probably the biggest thing – the thing I would tell prospective future students?  It -ALL- freakin' -MATTERS-  So do yourself a favor, take SMALL STEPS toward the changes- but make sure you do EVERYTHING you are recommended to do!

And really, when I think on it there really are only a very few “guiding” principles

  • Do what you say you are going to do
  • Dream Big – and visualize every. single. facet.    as if it were already an accomplished fact of life
  • The Index Cards (and everything that goes along with them) – matter more than you will probably know until AFTER the course is done… so make sure you develop it as a habit of your OWN early on.

That's about it for tonight guys…again see those top five bullet points… especially number two.

It is not an easy course to participate in fully – but I guarantee you

It's worth every last sacrifice to do it right!featured_solong-e1413494064617

1 Week# 23-Life’s Journey

StonesLooking back over the last 6 months, it is amazing to see the journey I have begun.  I can remember waking up at 2:00 a.m. and taking three hours to apply and set up the blog for this course.  I was so excited and anxious I was not fast enough and wouldn't make it in. I remember the excitement and anticipation while I waited to find out  if I had made it in to the course.  I did not even fully comprehend what was in store, but I just NEEDED to make it in. I remember the joy I felt when I found out I had been accepted as well as my husband, Dad and two friends.  Not only was I going to be able to take this journey;  I got to start it with a master mind group.

journey

At the beginning, I will admit, I did not like myself.  In fact it was close to hate.  Six months later, I can easily look in the mirror and honestly say ” I love you Leanne Overlander.”  I no longer had those limiting beliefs about myself.  If that was all that I gleaned from this experience, that in itself would be huge. I am grateful there is so much more and I would not be surprised if months from now I will discover some other improvements I do not recognize yet.Life's Journey

At the beginning, I felt like my life was a whirlwind spinning out of control. I had so many task and no direction.  I was just drifting.  Most of my time and effort went to others; homeschooling my kids and being a dance mom (no, it is nothing like the TV show, which I have never actually seen as we don't have TV hook up).  I am extremely proud of my children and of my daughter's  being in competition dance.  I get to watch them follow their dreams.  Life's JourneyI have put my dreams and desires on the back burner for so long, I did not even know who I was and what I wanted.  Through this experience, I have discovered some of my dreams and a purpose for my life. I know this is only the beginning and things will morph and grow as I knock off more of the cement.  The butterfly is still metamorphosing and has yet to fully emerge from her cocoon.  That is why I plan to continue to finish reading Og's scrolls and start reading the Master Keys from the beginning.  I look forward to the classes start again in the fall.

life is not a journey

4 MKMMA – Week 23 – A return to the Beginning…

greatiamOur ability to Visualize for ourselves an abundant Life is the greatest Talent we have. Second to that is our awareness – and therefore our ability to – choose what feelings are related to the experiences (and thoughts) we encounter on a regular basis in our daily lives.

What we choose to do with these Talents is our Gift back to God and the Universal flow of all experience.

Will we return to the Flow of time merely a record of our passage? We read an obituary every day now as part of our Course with the MKMMA – and from these we can gather that a great many Servants leave this world with naught but a flicker of embers as their light goes out.

Perhaps we shall leave a greater legacy  – something that we are remembered by a few for having accomplished – or perhaps we will leave Children behind who – if we are Good Servant Leaders – may remember us to the next generation.  Every once in a great while we read an Obit of such a person – typically longer due to generations left behind – and an occasional scholarship, grant, or impact on community.

What we purport to strive for in our hearts is to be that Servant, who is able to return Ten Fold to the Master, and multiples back to the tapestry of Life we will ultimately leave behind…  Do we leave a fingerprint in the flow of eternity for others to look back and mold their future greatness upon?  Are we able to truly come to the end our life and have NO REGRETS?

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 (the Challenge?) is to use it intelligently and produce only desirable results.  MK : 22 – 7

 

31525_20130222_180220_life_lesson_02Our Visualization of Future plans – which create our Present thoughts – become the texture, quality, brilliance and value of the Reality we term “our Life”. And when we reach the end of this adventure, and the Master comes to check on us – will we be deemed a “Good and Faithful Servant” in regards to the Talent we were given dominion over?

We have been allotted an unknown amount of time in this reality – 70 years? 10 years? 1??  During which we constantly find our physical bodies able to push past perceived finite limits, yet we allow our minds – unfettered by such simple physical restrictions – to constantly reign in what would otherwise create Deep, Rich pattern in the Tapestry…

Take your Dreams out for a spin today – live one small thing AS IF your dreams had already come to pass… and while you are there, in that moment – drink it in and VISUALIZE how much more it will be when it truly enters your life.  For if you can live that one small thing NOW in your life as it is, you can live it ALL – one small action, fed by amazing thought is all it takes EVERY day.

Will you make today the BEST day of your life? Will you leave a mark on the world – in ANY significant way today?

Help a stranger…

Teach a child…

Build you business bigger than even you can dream…

Love your spouse…children…parent… self… as if tomorrow will never come.

Hearty Breakfast Skillet

Breakfast skillet

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  The term breakfast comes from break and fast.  We are breaking a 8 or more hour fast and our body is looking for a
good amount of nourishment to get the day started off on the right foot.  Perhaps you have heard the famous health quote:

Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.

eat_breakfast_like_a_king

 Since we have fasted overnight and our body is running on reserves, to have optimum health and to prevent fat storage we need to make sure we get enough calories first thing in the morning.  Skipping breakfast is not the way to lose or maintain your weight.  Anytime your body feels like it is not getting adequate nourishment, it begins to store fat instead of burning it.  Done repetitively and the body goes into survival mode and will store the fat even if you do supply it with enough nutrients.  So skipping meals will actually make losing weight harder.

Also, if we don't get the right nutrients in the morning it can affect our moods all day.  Hangry can become a real thing if you skip a meal.

In modern society, where everything is about convenience and fast pace, we have lost the morning ritual of a hearty breakfast.  Most people are running out the door having coffee and a sugary cereal or doughnut because they are grab and go.  This can cause severe blood sugar spikes and Skip a mealdrops, which will not help you have the fuel and energy to make it through the day.  It really doesn't take that much longer to have a warm breakfast if you take the time to think ahead.  In this recipe, all of the vegetables can be cut and even sauted the night before so that all you need to do is throw it all in a pan and reheat it and add some scrambled eggs.  With a little forethought, you can have a satisfying breakfast that your body will thank you for all day long.

3 Week #22a -Self Reliance

The Road Less taken

 

In our journey in the Master Key Master Mind Experience we have learned to think for ourselves and to go for our dreams.  We have learned the importance of the word within, and thus self reliance.  In the end, only you will be there at all times for yourself, so we must learn to be self reliant.Man jump through the gap. Element of design.

In our readings for this week, we are asked to read Emerson's Self Reliance.  In this he states

” Whosoever would be a man must be a nonconformist.”

“I am ashamed to think how easily we capitulate to badges and names, to large societies and dead institutions.  Every decent and well-spoken individual affects and sways me more than is right.”

“The objection to conforming to usages that have become dead to you is, that it scatters your force. It loses your time and blurs the impression of your character.”

“A Man must consider what a blind-man's bluff is this game of conformity.”

“This conformity makes them not false in few particulars, authors of a few lies, but false in all particulars.”

Emerson was very against conformity.  He believed that to conform, man lost who he really was and his purpose in life.  He said that man became a lie when he conformed.  As we have learned in previous master keys lessons, truth keeps us in harmony with the Universal.  So if we conform and lie then we cannot be in harmony with the Universal and cannot reach our dreams.  So go against the flow, be true to YOU.sheeple

Steve Jobs

I believe everything happens for a reason.  There are many things that have happened in my life prior to MKMMA that I believe prepared me to be ready for the Herald's call when the MKMMA launched.  Things which made me feel like I was weird, or different and I now realize I was not conforming and being true to the inner me.  I had to endure being the “Black Sheep” of the family, losing friends, and feeling alienated.  Some of the things that caused this were  that we don't celebrate Christmas with decorations and gifts; believing we should celebrate Christ's birth everyday, home birth of 3 of my 4 children, home schooling my kids, and not vaccinating them ( they are the healthiest kids I know; never been to a doctor for being sick).  In the end I stuck to my convictions and I am a happier person having been true to myself.  And the funny thing is that what I was so nonconformist in then is coming to be more widthe ones who are crazyely accepted now.  Go figure I was a head of the times 🙂

Stay true to your world with in and your dreams, stay strong with your beliefs and convictions, and learn to trust in your self.  The rewards are worth the struggles you may have to endure along the way.

2 MKMMA – Week 22 – What goes around – Comes around…

lego_venice__06

Ahhhh…. Venice, Piazzo San Marco. What I wouldn't give for this to be part of my reality…right now.

You have to realize, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged.  Many of them are so inert, so helplessly dependent on the System that they will fight to protect it.

Makes for a great movie line… the drama…then phrasing in such a way as to sound ‘wise'…

Unfortunately it is so FREAKIN' true most of us will never know the full extent of it's meaning…

Another favorite movie phrase: “I see plans, within plans…you must share with us

I know I've said it before in my posts – but I think it bears repeating especially as this previous week's Master Key does with a new wrinkle on the same message… maybe this time someone new will see it?

51fSaLU8AML._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

There.  We all feel better now right?

I do.  But it took me a while to come to terms with the truth of that statement.

OK…ok, ok, ok.  Technically the Master Keys really only teach us the latter half of that … our world IS a lie.  It just happens to be the warm, fuzzy, COMFORTABLE lie that we have opted for.

But the MKMMA is pushing us to stretch outside our comfort zones – to be more than the vision we have of ourselves, and to become what we ENvision ourselves to be.

…let us remember that every thought produces an impression on the mind; every impression is a seed which will sink into the subconscious and form a tendency; the tendency will be to attract other similar thoughts and before we know it we shall have a crop which must be harvested.  MK 22:2

…the question is, what are we thinking, what are we creating, what is the harvest to be? MK 22:3

 

Reflecting on the concepts taught in the MKMMA, and with particular attention to the Master Keys themselves, the realization that everything in our lives – every effect we are currently experiencing – is the result of our past perceptions should bring unbounded joy and expectation for an abundant future. While, at the same time, it reveals the above statement to be absolutely true.

Let's say that, for some of us, our current lives are perhaps a “blue square” – all hard edges and less than happy goings on.

Our perceptions – based on layer after layer, and year after year,of interpreting the activity around us – tell us that this IS our life.

Because of our parents, our upbringing, the opportunities we had – or didn't have, the foods we ate, the school we went to, the friends we had (or, again.. didn't have)….

All of these things we have come to believe are directly responsible for the Life we have right now.

At this very moment.

Others of us are living a life in the “golden circle” – from the outside at least – everything is flowing smoothly, there's a glow about everything and …

Because of our parents, our upbringing, the opportunities we had – or didn't have, the foods we ate, the school we went to, the friends we had (or, again.. didn't have)….

All of these things we have come to believe are directly responsible for the Life we have right now.

At this very moment.

But what if, as the Master Keys tell us…

Everything in the Universe is what it is by virtue of its rate of vibration. Change the rate of vibration and you change the nature, quality and form. The vast panorama of nature, both visible and invisible, is being constantly changed by simply changing the rate of vibration, and as thought is a vibration we can also exercise this power. We can change the vibration and thus produce any condition which we desire to manifest in our bodies. MK 22:6

appearances

We are the individualization of the Universal Intelligence…and our perceptions, without the wisdom imparted through the MKMMA encourage a failure to realize that our lives are so much more than a flat, two-dimensional “blue square” or “golden circle”.

We are multi-faceted, multi-dimensional beings, created in the image of God – the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent frequency from which all things are not only created – but exist within a constant state of change influenced by the power of Thought.

1 Week 22: Frequencies and Mastering Your Emotions

 

MInd wave powerWeak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts.- Og Scroll VI

Years ago, when I heard discussion about frequencies and vibrations, I thought it was hokey.  I am a very strong Christian despite not attending a Church.  At that time in my life, I couldn't see the theory of frequencies coinciding with my Christianity.

Then a couple of years ago, I attended a Regional Training Event for the network marketing company my husband and I are building.  One of the trainer's message was about frequencies.  He explained that higher frequencies were associated with the emotions of love, happiness, success, and wealth.  Whereas hate. fear, depression, poverty, and anger were associated with lower frequencies.emotional scale

My mind must have been ripe and open to receive the information this time.  It made so much sense to me and was explained in a way that it could coincide with my faith.  I left that training event believing that could become more successful by changing my frequencies to higher ones.  I just didn't know how.  I did have a better understanding of things hat had happened in my life that seamed odd.  Thins like my husband and I coming up with the same thought when we were not even in a conversation together, or the time a song was on the radio and ad the same precise moment we snapped our fingers to the pause in the music.  It was not really a “snapping” point in the song and it was so strange to have done the same thing at the exact same time.  After the training, I realized that we were on the same frequency.  Little did I know at the time, it was being one with the Universal.

Master Key 22:5 It is through the law of vibration the the mind exercises this control over the body.  We know that every mental action is vibration, and we know that all form is simply a mode of motion, a rate of vibration.  There fore, any given vibration immediately modifies every atom in the body, every life cell is affected and an entire chemical change is made in every group of life cells.

Then my Master Key Experience began and my perspective evolved again.  We learn that all matter has vibration (frequencies).  We have been learning how to control our thoughts and emotions and now I know “how-to” use the frequencies.

Master Key 22:6-7- Everything in the Universe is what it is by virtue of its rate of vibration.  Change the rate of vibration and you change the nature, quality  and form.  The vast panorama of nature, both visible and invisible, is being constantly change by simply changing the rate of vibration, and as thought is a vibration we can also exercise this power.  We can change the vibration and thus produce any condition which we desire to manifest in our bodies.

We are all using this power every minute.  The trouble is most of us are using it unconscionably and thus producing undesirably results,  The problem is to use it intelligently and produce only desirable results.

It is all in our controlling our thoughts which determines the frequencies we are projecting out into the world. In Og's Scroll VI, he gives us guidelines on how to use the Law of Substitution to change our thinking to bring us into harmony with the Universal and also to obtain those higher frequencies which equate with health, happiness and success.  They are as follows:

If I feel depressed I will sing.

If I feel sad I will laugh.

If I feel ill I will double my labor.

If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.

If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.

If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.

If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.

If I feel incompetent I will remember past success.

If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.

We draw towards us forces, events, resources, and people which match our frequencies (feelings and thoughts). The happier we are the higher the frequencies we attract. Our emotions are carriers of our projected thoughts.  This months reading of Scroll VI focuses on controlling out emotions.  When we control our emotions, we control our thoughts and thereby our frequencies.  This allows us to attract like frequencies and can bring about abundance and our deepest desires.

Today I will be master of my emotions.

Gluten Free Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Iced Oatmeal CookiesWhat do you do on a cold, blustery winter day when there is not enough snow to go out and play in it?  Here in our household, you bake.   It warms up the house not only by the use of the oven,but also with the smells drifting from the kitchen. My fifteen year old daughter loves to bake and loves to try varies recipes she finds on pinterest.  She found this recipe from Mother Thyme on pinterest and decided modified it to be gluten free. Oatmeal cookies are a timeless classic and these continue satisfy the taste buds.  Everyone in the family loved them. Who wouldn't?  Most people like oatmeal cookies.  A mixture of mild sweetness and spice that will calm any craving.  AS luck would have it, she was making these as I was trying to decide what to bring for my BNI meeting as the birthday treat for this month.  Since I am gluten free, I bring the treats every month so most of us can enjoy them.  It is really difficult to address all food allergies.  They were a hit. I did not hear a negative comment about them. So I am sharing with all of you so you too can enjoy these delicious treats with a cup of warm cocoa, co fee, or tea.  The wonderful thing about these cookies, is that they are light and can be eaten anytime of the year.  They will go equally well with a glass of lemonade or iced tea as they do with warm drinks.  A treat to be enjoyed all year round.
