Week 12: Created in His Image

inorganicflora1

In the past couple of weeks there has definitely been a compounding effect and a shift in my thoughts. My mind and heart; my soil has been prepared for new seeds of growth.

In the Master Keys week 12 Haanel states, ” The mind cannot comprehend an entirely new idea until a corresponding vibratory  brain cell has been prepared to receive it. This explains why it is so difficult for us to receive or appreciate an entirely new idea; we have no brain cell capable of receiving it; we are therefore incredulous; we do not believe it.”  One must prepare and till and nourish the soil so that a seed can then be planted and germinate.

Several little spiritual “ah-has” this week have come over and over again. The power and divine inspiration of the creation of myself, my children, this amazing beautiful earth and all its creations! Each was thought of and created in such intricate detail. Down to the most delicate flower everything created in what Haanel calls “Mathematical exactitude”. Is our own body, mind, spirit any different? In Genesis 1:27 it reads ” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him;male and female created He them.” I was…you were…created in the image of God!!!

As a mother of two I have more greatly understand the power of creation but my mind has been blown away as I have realized our creative abilities are NOT just about being physically procreative but being mentally creative; designing beauty in our most amazing asset, our minds!  Was it not God who created every living thing on the earth? The detail of thought and design that must have gone into each and every thing and his crowning one, man, created in His image. Would He not give that same creative process to His children?

Master Keys lesson 12, ” Now realize your unity with Omnipotence; get into touch with this power, come into a deep and vital understanding, appreciation and realization of the fact that your ability to think is your ability to act upon the Universal Mind and bring it into manifestation, realize it will meet any and every requirement…” My relationship with my creator, My Heavenly Father is growing and multiplying.  That same power that He created the earth and the heavens with already is within me, within you!

Genesis 9:7 God speaks to His children, “And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply;bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.”

“Therein” is the mind, the growth of abundance in the world within.

“He who desires wisdom, power, or permanent success of any kind will find it only within.”

Week 11: Faith is Dead Without Works and Persistence!

brain-image-2

So many thoughts….so many connections….400 billion neurological messages are zooming through my brain telling me it is true.

I feel the shift.  I am changed.  My testimony of things long known is strengthened. I am enlightened.

James 2:15 ” Yea, a man may say, I will show thee I have faith without works; but I say, show me thy faith without works, and I will show thee my faith by my works.”

Faith is an action and goes hand in hand with personal confidence in my works and persistence!

400 billion more neurological messages fire..this time they stay together. LIGHT BULB!

I have faith and confidence because of my persistence. How do I have persistence?

  • Burning desire
  • Plan of action
  • Immerse myself in positivity and eliminate the voices that chisel away at my gold, putting layers and layers of cement on my TRUE SELF
  • Join and align with like-minded people.  There is an old saying, “misery loves company”…guess what abundance loves company too! Even better, I create a deeper relationship with my greater self, the one that God sees and knows.

But wait there’s moooooooooooore!

Yes another 400 billion neurological messengers stake their claim…my claim…it is mine!

Mark 11:24 ” Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

Little preface here…two verses previously…Jesus says, “Have faith in God.” He continues to then speak that those who have faith may tell a mountain to be removed and cast into the sea and it can be accomplished.  But ONLY  those who do not doubt in his heart…and he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Limitations and doubts…..the voices…all the noise, noise, noise!

They are created by our thoughts….thoughts which come from a place that were not created by the Omnipotent, the Divine.

I choose faith…knowing it takes persistence, practice, work, more practice and more work.

Is it worth it?

PURE BLISS!

Week 10: Believe!

Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

  -Roald Dahl

Believe

This time of year is magical for me! Christmas lights everywhere seem to sparkle and shine telling the miracle of Christ’s birth and life. Red and green are everywhere, both are now a couple of my favorite colors. It is as if the whole world is exploding with joy and love.  With small children the magic manifests itself even more. The awe of a small child walking into the living room with the Christmas tree gleaming.  The squeals of laughter as you daughter finds out that, Fridgy the family elf, has gone zip lining with dental floss again in the living room.   There is a joy that as I mentioned last week, “makes one’s heart grow”.

 So why was I so sad? A few experiences manifested themselves to be challenging but I love challenges! So why was I so down? At every turn it was as if I had to deflect another thought of inability as a mother or wife.  Questioning what my real purpose was in life and if I could really accomplish my goals.  The adversary is a cunning voice that manipulates and twists things till there is no juice of life left. For a couple of days I felt as if I was running away from a dark storm chasing me, always on my heels. 

Then an epiphany! In the darkness all it takes is one star, one light to shine to find your way.  Then the light grows.

I almost started chanting “I do believe in fairies, I do, I do”, over and over. “I do believe in me, I do, I do!”  I need to believe!  Just like little “H” who is so sure every morning that Fridgy will have performed his next adventurous feat of epic Christmas proportions. She believes with every fiber and every curl on her cute little head that Santa will know that she needed to make some edits to her list and that she didn’t need to write another letter.

What happens to us as adults? As a child so innocent and pure, resilient like a bouncy ball to falling, unscathed by doubts and fears. Today I am like a child on Christmas morning every day of the year. I shout from the roof no more as a doubting Thomas….I believe!

“So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist…I will persist. I will win.”

I BELIEVE!

Week 9: Perhaps our thoughts mean a little bit more!

This week brought a strong realization and awareness of the negativity that can invade one’s mind if one lets it.  This week also brought a wave of love as if I were the Grinch who stole Christmas and brought it back. As in Whoville they say, “The Grinch’s heart grew three sizes that day.”

This week brought very REAL feelings and a greater understanding that as Haanal states in Master Key Part Nine, “Character is not a thing of chance, but it is the result of continued effort…If you are self-conscious, or over anxious, or harassed by thoughts of fear remember that…two things cannot exist in the same place at the same time.” Those thoughts are debilitating and robbing yourself of living water, shriveling up the blossoms of positive thought denying your mind the nourishment that it needs to bring to pass the desires that you are seeking. In Master Key Part Nine again, “man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the question is, how are we going to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones?”  First, the law of substitution a natural law that is in effect whether we believe it or not. “We cannot think about two things at the same time”. It is not always easy to replace thoughts of fear and discouragement but for me a greater understanding of second, the Law of Growth brings enlightenment. “What we think about grows and what we forget about atrophies”. What we focus on expands in our minds, hearts and our physical environment.

” I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving harmonious and happy!”

I choose to eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness and cynicism and develop a love for all humanity because a negative attitude towards others can never bring me success or the things that I desire in my life.  Some may think…”I am just having a bad day and it’s okay to feel crummy tomorrow will be better.” I testify that those destructive thoughts whether about yourself or others will bring more of that negativity to you.They expand and every time a negative thought comes you are literally PUSHING AWAY the things that you want, deep down inside the deepest crevices of your heart.

I choose to put up my shield of love and allow my to heart grow….

“Never do I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I share it and it grows and warms the earth.”    The Greatest Salesman in the World

As the Grinch realized, an act of courage and love is much stronger than an act of bitterness and hate and maybe, just maybe, we will all realize that our thoughts perhaps mean a little bit more!

Inspire and create and cheers to abundant living!

Week 8: Turn it off and turn it up!

This week has been a journey! Sunday afternoon Mark J encouraged us to turn off the TV and imagine more. I accepted that challenge along with my husband and miss “H”. We all decided that we were going to turn off the TV and turn up the heat this week by increasing our enthusiasm! At first I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to get everything done during little “M”s nap with another one by my side. This time is her chill time and my go time.  The normal routine consisted of “H” watching a movie and me working, tweeting, sharing, practicing and training. So this week miss “H” has been a much-needed side kick.  We created her very own movie poster/dream board and I ended up spending an afternoon in an imaginary land in a red, blue, green and yellow tent reading books with my sweet daughter. I learned that miss “H” wants to be an artist when she grows up and that she knows she can be the best artist because “she can be what she wills to be!”

It isn’t necessarily that what we were watching was a poor choice of media, but that I need more time to un plug and turn up the brain  juices and so does my family. I have had free time to visualize my goals and there is an even greater amount of positive energy and love in my home. Even when I am not home I am affected by it. Sitting in traffic yesterday, I knew I was going to be late for an appointment. It was dark and up ahead  all I could see was a sea of red brake lights.  For a brief moment I wanted to wine and stress and then I realized that I was seeing red-liberty! I saw an ocean of liberty ahead of me and all was right in my world.

So, here’s the deal. We have a fabulous TV and we love to watch movies as a family on it and have popcorn, pajama parties in our front room while watching a princess movie of course.  BUT less time in front of it means more imagination and dreaming for my family.  I knew there had to be a reason why Grandpa used to call the TV, a “boob tube”. My thoughts tell my story and my story tells my life. That is something that I want to decide for myself AND NOT something Hollywood decides for me.

Week 7: Throw out the Trash

Don't be a grouch...just get rid of it!

Don’t be a grouch…just get rid of it!

So I have to laugh.  Second time writing this blog post.  I thought I saved my most recent draft…all I needed to do was proof read and I guess I didn’t.  Needed to do some updates and had to restart the computer and after dinner no blog post!  This is a perfect example of shifting, changing throwing out the negative and realizing that it doesn’t serve us! For about 3 seconds I wanted to be a Grouch but I knew better. As Emmet Fox states in The 7 Day Mental Diet ” The condition of my life tomorrow, and the next week, and next year, will be entirely conditioned by the thoughts and feelings which I choose to entertain…”

I choose what I feed my body, mind and soul every second of every day.  Do I really want to feed it trash?  I am not just speaking of food or praiseworthy movies, books and music, which would most definitely be included, but I am speaking down to the inner most thoughts and feelings even the ones that we don’t express. I choose my thoughts each day which I then cannot choose the consequence. Thoughts create a causative effect.  I can not have negative thoughts, negative words, negative emotions and expect to have positive things in my life.  This goes against natural laws by which we are all privy too. If something smells like rotten fish than look inward.  I am absolutely blown away every week! I am learning this stuff and what’s even more amazing is that there is a remembrance as if I have known it once before. If I want a different outcome than something has to change and that something is inside my mind. This week I have started a 7 day mental diet of nothing but prime nourishment.  The first two days were really quite phenomenal.  I felt on fire and then day three came.  I felt like every turn every movement there was a negative thought trying to draw me in, draw my attention before then closing a garbage lid on top of me as if trying to trap me forever in a stinking pile of trash.  I would not let it….at every turn I would defend and redirect my thoughts to that of God and positive memories, experiences and affirmations.  I was so exhausted by the end of the day.  I craved to have what Og Mandino says about a shield that deflects hate and anger, ” It will become stronger and more protective with use until one day I will cast it aside and walk unencumbered among all manners of men…” I wanted to have that feeling of strength and courage.

So day 1 once again starting over on my journey of 7 consecutive days of pure aspiring truth!  Amazing! As I greet each day with love I grow stronger.  I cannot fail for failing only comes when one gives up.  I can not, I will not give up.  “I will greet each day with love in my heart. And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart.” -Og Mandino
