Week 9: Is this for real?

I was hanging out with a good friend yesterday telling her about all the cool things that are happening, and in the same breathe I was telling her how maybe it was just too good to be true.  WHAT?!

One of the things that I have on my vision board is to be in a loving relationship with a man who is also a successful Entrepreneur.  So I began by getting myself out there, right to meet someone you have to start, so I did just that.  Within a week I met this extraordinary man who adores me, is also a successful Entrepreneur and wants to give me the moon.  But instead of leaning into that I had created this, and that the “hard” work I have been doing to create my life is paying off, I went to “This can’t be real!”

My girlfriend said to me, “Why don’t you stand in his creation now, and allow yourself to enjoy and reap the rewards of your creation.”

Now that was an “aha”!  I could just settle in and enjoy this man who adores me, the very thing that I have dreamt about, wrote about, and talked about.

What I have been realizing is that in the background of creating all this was the doubt that it could or would ever be realized.  I have spent a lot of my life creating vision boards, writing futures, creating goals, and all the other stuff one can do.  But with the this proobably won’t or can’t happen has always been lurking in the background.

mind-powerfulSo now with turning things over to my subconscious as Og Mandino says in his book The Greatest Salesman in the World, “that mysterious source that never sleeps, which creates my dreams, and often makes me act in ways I do not comprehend” , I have been able to release the ideas, thoughts or assumptions that this kind of stuff was just not in the cards for me.

So I havbelive-ite realized that magic is happening!  This is real!  I can now see that I do believe it and the future that I want, or something better is going to happen.  I can have what I want and more.

So I have a lot to be grateful for at this time, well always, but having a “knowing” that as Hill says “Whatever my mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve” I am delighted in the possibilities.

Week 8: Fantastic!

Well what a week!  A challenge of no TV for a week.  Here I thought I did not watch much TV, but take it away and I realize just how much time I spend sitting in front of it, wasting time, not even really conscious.

So I just realized just how not present I spend a lot of my time and I call it relaxing.  But When I consciously relaxed, I not only relaxed but I did things that I really enjoy that move me forward to where I really want to be.  I have readjusted my life, in a good way, but it is different.

The beginning of it was exhausting.  I worked from dawn til I finally went to bed.  I did not know how to relax.  I got a lot done, but man was I beat.  So then I thought by the third day I must discover and create a new way, a way of consciously relaxing and being present.

So as I moved through the week I began to notice something.  That I was noticing things, The little things like how this tree in front of my window seems to sway in a way that is soothing, comfortable and very organic.  So then maybe that is what life is all about.  You go with the flow while standing strong, grounded in the earth.

I then started a new journey, a ritual of sorts.  I got grounded every morning.  I created my intention for the day.  I had my schedule, but I got to allow life to happen.  To notice how life just moves you.  But here is the big thing,  if I just move with life organically, I do not resist it, it is soothing and comfortable.

So it really is only in the resistance of  what is happening in my life where it can get uncomfortable and difficult.

So although I will go back to watching TV, it will now be intentional.  Who knows what I will discover from creating my life from an intentional space all the time.

Week 7: What can you see?

 

“Through the ages man has believed in an invisible power, through which and by which all things have been created and continually being created.” says  Haanel.

It goes to reason really.  I mean if you look around your life there are things, situations, even people that you have been dreaming up for a long time.  Some of those things may have seemed like they magically appeared, I know I have many of those.  But when I think of this invisible power, I personally have many names in which I call it, I can look back in my life when I was creating all kinds of exciting things and life was fun, I was happy, things seem to be going great.  Yet, there have also been times when things just plain sucked.

When I look back on those times when life sucked, I can honestly say that what was getting created was more suckiness.  It was all that consumed my thoughts, even my actions, and who I was being.  When I closed my eyes I could not invision anything that even remotely seemed positive or even possible, it was strictly worry, stress, and horrible thoughts of not being enough, or worthy.

Now thinking back on that time, knowing that I did have a say I can see that what I went to work on was invisioning, visualizing, writing about, talking about a future that I really wanted.  I turned things around.  I created in my beliefs, in my actions, in my invisioning of life.  I stopped allowing the negative thoughts to stay stuck with me.

Now it was not over night that things started showing up, but one thing for sure is I immediately started feeling hopeful, even happy.  Over a matter of several months of visualizing, and managing my self-talk, as well as gossip and negative thinking, talking and acting, my life changed.  My business picked up, I moved into a great new place, I started losing weight.  The best part of all of it at that time was it seemed like magic.  It was not hard, and although there was effort, it was not difficult.

I now am so grateful for the invisible power through which and by which all things have been and will continue to be created and re-created.  I continue to visualize, to dream, to create positive “vibes” where ever I go.  I love my life and the opportunities that lie ahead.  After all with the invisible power on my side, well, anything is possible.

 

Week 6: It’s Subtle, but oh boy!

subconscious-mind

 

Six weeks in and I can feel it.  I wake up every morning with a vitality I have not known, well not in a long time anyway and I am happier than I remember being in a long time as well.  There is only one explanation and that is something  as Og says, “seeps into my other mind, that mysterious source which never sleeps, which creates my dreams, and often makes me act in ways I do not comprehend”.

Listen I know a lot about this stuff, I have studied, I have read, I have done seminar, webinars, and every other kind “nar” there is, but without the persistent actions that allow for this, what seems like magical stuff, to seep in, it is just really great information and I have a lot of that.

I think the biggest benefit is to realize that you can’t just read it in a book, or watch it on a screen, or listen to a message, it takes practice.  Not just one day, or even two days, it takes persistent committed action, over and over and over again.

I know there is a lot of information out there, but really how many times do you read the book, that by the way may even have the actions to take included, and you just read through and then set it down and then later wonder why nothing seems to be making a difference.  For me it was all the time!  I have an extensive library, I love books, I even feel smart just being around books.  But, the one thing I have not done is to take my time and study, and digest the information in any book in which I am reading.  Now this is not to say that I have not gleaned some awesome information over the last several decades of reading, but to see the difference that studying, and allowing the material to seep into my mysterious mind has on me, I cannot imagine I will ever read a book in the same way.

The information here in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance is all information that a lot of people know, but interesting enough, few people do.  So I think it is time that we learned this lesson, that doing what we have always done is not going to get us any different results.  Albert Einstein said it best, “Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results is the definition of insanity.”  Yet here we are, we do not have the life we want, we know what to do and we do not do it, or we are not effective at what we need to do, yet we do nothing about it, and on and on it goes, the insanity continues as Einstein would say.

So now we know right?  Well yes, but it goes even beyond knowing, because knowing does not always make a difference, clearly, see the example above, we keep doing things that don’t work.  But the biggest impact we can have on our lives is to experience the difference that doing things as they were meant to be done has on our lives.  I know that as I sat down last night to read my final collection of things we read, I really did not feel like it.  My mind was saying, no one will know, it’s just this one time, and blah, blah, blah.  But this time was different!  I just had to look back at my day, and remembering my experiencing the joy and happiness, and remembering the things I have moved forward in a way that has not moved for months, my mind then said, “DO IT NOW!”

I am delighted in my experience of myself.  I have a knowing that what I am creating for the next year will indeed come true.  It is on its way now.  My job is to keep doing the work for my “subby” to have a clear picture to be able to deliver the perfect things to show up.
