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.

no-tv

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.

 

 

Week 5: Giving, Enough Said

giving-1Giving:  to cause or allow (someone or something) to have (something, especially something abstract); provide or supply with (Definition from Google).  I love this.  I mean how often do we think about how we can get something, or what do we need to get, or I need more (Fill in the blank)?  Countless times right?  Well the new paradigm (not new, but new to many), is giving, or giving more than I receive.

What a concept!  Give more to get more.

Haanel says, ” This power is from within, but we cannot receive it unless we give it.  Use is the condition upon which we hold this inheritance.  We are each of us but the channel through wiich the Omnipotent power is being differentiated into form;  unless we give, the channel is obstructed and we can receive no more.  This is true on every plane of exitence and in every field of endeavor and all walks of life  The more we give, the more we get. ..The financier who wishes to make money must use of the money he has, for only by using it can he get more.”

So our power, is only ours as long as we are giving it.  What?!  Giving my power away?  No giving, giving of your time, giving of you resources, giving a smile, a gift, whatever it may be.

I am reminded at this time in history with the elections coming up soon of all that people want to hold onto;  their opinions, their righteousness, their dignity, their point of view, and in the process there comes anger, hate and even violence.  You do not have to look far to feel the angst.  What if for one minute we gave each other the gift of understanding, listening for no good reason, just a gift.

Living without giving opinions is challenging, especially at this time. Someone today accused me of living in a bubble.  I suppose if living in a bubble where I want to spread only love and understanding and keep my opinions to myself then this bubble I wish to stay in. You know the old saying, “Opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one.”

So today I choose to give more than I receive, and I am starting with love and understanding. So to all of my followers and to all the people full of angst, and everyone else, I hope you can let in and allow this swoosh of love and understanding to penetrate straight through to your heart and that it provides at the very least a moment of warmth and understanding for humanity.

So if that means I live in a bubble, then let it be.

 

Week 4 I did it!

Life is a journey for sure!

Since I began this leg of my journey in the last four weeks, life has gotten really interesting.  There is life, death, sickness and health.  I have felt it, I have connected to it, and I have realized that it is just life lifing.  It really is extraordinary for me to have discovered, once again really, that life just keeps lifing and I get to say how it will go for me.

I have felt the connection of being one.  I have felt the feelings, the sadness, the anger of people around me. I feel it as they are mine.  It has been unsettling.  Not bad, just unsettling.  Learning to separate from the I am sad, I am unsettled, I am (fill in the blank) has been powerful. I can have these feelings and not be impacted by these feelings, not take them in, not let them overtake me.

I know there are powers much bigger than myself which is awesome and thank goodness really because if I am what I have to depend on then, yikes…but then again, what is the “I” that I depend on?  I have looked at this “I” in the past to really discover that there really is no “I”.  I mean if you were to cut me open, but please don’t, you would not find some little me inside, please trust me.    There would not be Georgiana the business owner, or Georgiana the woman, or Georgiana the sister, or Aunt, or friend or any other way in which I say that “I” am inside of me.  But “I” has real power.   The “I” that is Universal power that when connected anything is possible.

So that is really great news right?!  That means we are never just stuck with anything there is no fixed way that you are.   Haanel says in the Master Keys, “When you say “I think” the “I” tells the mind what it shall think; when you say “I go” the “I” tells the physical body where it shall go; the real nature of this “I” is spiritual, and is the source of the real power which comes to men and women when they come into a realization of their true nature.”

So discovering my true nature as  human being connected as one to the Universal Mind, when “I” connect I can create and achieve anything.  Not only can I create anything but this is where all the magic happens.  When I give up that I “know” what is possible or not for me and my life the magic is gone, but when I just give it up, and trust, and listen, and connect to the real power within all of us, the Universal Mind, God, Krishna, Jesus, whatever resonates with you, magic and what we call miracles happen.

The only caveat here, when I say magic and miracles it also makes me think of I had nothing to do with it.  But I did.  I let go, I connected, I created, I trusted and I did the work that was shown on the path for me to take.  So I know I cannot just sit and connect and create, but I must also and always take action.  I once heard someone say there is action in attraction.  So I say if you can dream it, trust, listen and take inspired action, anything is possible.

It is interesting as I have known all this for a long time, and have even dipped my toe in practicing this many times.  But the “I” that “knows” (and is cynical and resigned) would take over and stop the action.  By trusting, diving in deep, and playing full-out, 100% all the time, does make incremental and sometimes huge jumps in reality.

So I continue to let go, to trust and take inspired actions!  As the saying goes, “The future is so bright I gotta wear shades.”  Let my dreams come to reality!

 

 

Week 3 Is it really OK to celebrate?

Week 3 Is it really OK to celebrate?

“It is the best of times and the worst of time.”  Charles Dickens wrote in the Tale of Two Cities.  This is how it feels right now.  With friends with Cancer, people dying and the uncertainty that life is, since being so connected to one mind I feel that I have been feeling a little more impacted by this than I actually thought.

It is my birthday on Saturday and I have been in a celebratory mode, with dinners and plans for getting together with friends, yet I wonder, with all that goes on, is it really OK to celebrate.  I mean I know that life is meant to be celebrated and enthusiasm and excitement is  what we put into all of our readings.  But this week has been challenging.

On one hand things are completely different, and on the other things are completely the same.  I know, how can that be?  People get sick, people die, and we always move on and get through it and mostly I believe we can learn so much about ourselves in the process. It is, that is life is, one big lesson.

In Part 3 of the Master Key, Haanel says, “Eliminate, therefore, any possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be.”  Well I want my friends to not have cancer, and for my father in law to not have died.  Yet, there does not seem to be anything I can do about that and that is how I want them to be!  So now what?

Well for me, I had to sink into my body and listen to the wisdom of the Universe and here is what I heard.  “You cannot do anything about certain circumstances, and feeling helpless will make you sad, even angry.  But finding the joy in every moment no matter the circumstances is your opportunity to make your life and those around you more beautiful.”

So there is my lesson.  Joy!

What will the next lesson be?  Who knows.  But what I do know is that I will be bringing joy to it.
