Week 20 – Power of Thought

I have heard the saying, “If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you’d never think a negative thought again…”

What we think, we become. Our thoughts have energy. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. right… I get it… or do I? How many times do I have to hear something to get so tired of it that I say I understand it… and I kind of do. But if I REALLY think about it, I mean CONCENTRATE on it, do I get it more?

yes

So that is where I am with this power of thought thing. I’ve read books on quantum physics, quantum mechanics, the zeno effect… blah, blah, that’s amazing!, blah…. I’ve been to energy readings with psychics, and I’ve experienced some AMAZING evidence. What happens when I sit and just THINK about these pieces of evidence is incredible. My little brain goes to new places and opens new doors of possibility. Possibility. Now I need to see the evidence. I don’t want small evidence either… I want BIG evidence. I want OMG!! evidence… I’m going to keep sitting, thinking, and practicing. The Seven Laws of the Mind… that’s a BIG deal.

Week 19 – Fear and Concentration

Fear is such an amazing motivator. But what do you do when you have committed to stay out of fear? Where is the motivation generated? Greed? Lust? Hunger? Envy? Pride? Wrath? Without it (motivation) we end up in sloth… WOW! Heavy topic.

So if we swing to the opposite side of the playground we have Charity, Chastity, Temperance, Kindness, Humility, Forgiveness, Diligence…

Geez, when I look at it like THAT… no WONDER fear is such a great motivator!! LOL!!

Taking the time to concentrate and REALLY focus on what is going on and the direction I want to be going is a REAL challenge. My mind tends to wander. The focused concentration turns into time-wasting fantasy. Bring it back. Re-direct. The conscious mind is a BEAST to tame… and then it happens… it goes down the perfect path and vision comes together and everything synchronizes.

 

WOW!!

 

DO IT AGAIN!!

Week 18 – Law of Attraction and the Power to Create

Concentrate on your power to create; seek insight, perception. When you finish a computer program you can run a test to see if the processor goes through all of the steps that are in the design. I need that for my brain. I need to know if I am presently sending the proper messages. I understand this takes practice. I understand this takes patience. I am fine with that. I just want to know if I am sending the right signals. I am continuing to send these signals and seeing what transpires. I just don’t want to get 6 months down the road and find out that I have a message backwards and I suddenly turn into a vegetarian (not that vegetarians are bad people, it’s just not what I want for me)! I don’t want to WASTE time. AND I want to get MOVING!!

Week 17 HJ

Wow, so much good stuff!

This week my virtue is Taking Initiative. I see this all over the place, which is reassuring because I chose it as one of my weaker attributes. Once the thought of the virtue is in my head I see it EVERYWHERE. It’s WAY worse than the new car syndrome… The exercise is so illuminating. I really see how just being aware of a thing makes it so apparent. It REALLY gets me fired up to take more control of the random thoughts generated in my subconscious mind.

The Hero’s Journey is our current/next lesson. I THINK there is a LOT to be learned here and I hope I grasp it and put into action the steps necessary to have an AMAZING journey. I suppose in THEORY I am already on an amazing journey and I just don’t see fit as such yet. I am expecting EPIC transformation. I am NOT satisfied with piddly diddly (that’s right I said it… PIDDLY DIDDLY… they are going to have to put a warning label on THIS post) advances in my life. I am going for EPIC!! (Yeah, I need some kind of bigger font there… not enough emphasis)

 

Week 17 – Concentration

“Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical values; the average person has no conception of the meaning of concentration. … Momentary enthusiasm is of no value; it is only with unbounded self-confidence that the goal is reached.”

 

Right?! So the real trick that we hear OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER again is to IMAGINE with EMOTION. BELIEVE that we are there. I love the seven laws of the mind at play here and again probably the most important and often overlooked is the law of the subconscious:

As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand  –  accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

So getting the subconscious onboard is OBVIOUSLY important… I think maybe that is my issue, my subconscious mind is a paranoid insomniac. I mean we KNOW that the subconscious never sleeps, but MY subconscious thinks that EVERYONE is out to get it! Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t gunning for you! I am sticking with this program. One of us is going to crack and since I am getting rest at night it HAS to be my subconscious… EVERYONE knows that sleep deprivation is bad for you. PLUS!!! I have this AWESOME new affirmation:

I give myself permission to be happy and to allow my subconscious mind to positively affect my world.

Week 16 – 13 Virtues

What a GREAT assignment. Sort these 13 virtues from personal weakest to strongest and then spend a week focusing on noticing each one. Week one was NOT so very strong. <sad face>

I chose decisiveness, and it was easily (conveniently) forgotten. Week 2 I HAD to have a better plan so I whipped this up in photoshop and printed it on a 3X5 card:IMG_9443.jpg

It’s a little battered from riding around in my pocket, but every time I pulled out my phone (which is a LOT) I was reminded… It’s working!! (I included a PDF in case you want to print one up yourself…) I just keep tally marks every time I see or participate in a kindness… WOOHOO… Perhaps this exercise tells me I need to get out of the house more.  <shocked face>

AND… bonus points, when the week is over I can drop it into my pile of flash cards!!

Week 15 – Cool Runnings

Focus Daniel San… oh wait, wrong movie.

While I enjoyed Disney’s version of the story, further research reveals the lack of reality. Bummer, but understandable. I did get behind the characters in the film and enjoyed the dedication and focus that they portrayed. It was a good model for real life… I think.

Week 14 – It’s like buying a new car!

The Seven Laws of the Mind….

LAW OF SUBSTITUTION

We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind  don’t resist it but instead turn from it and think about something else instead.

 LAW OF RELAXATION

Mental effort defeats itself – It’s the exact opposite of physical effort. A relaxed, calm state of mind is the only access to Infinite Intelligence.

LAW OF PRACTICE

Practice. With practice of the correct things, we improve the other 6 Laws of the mind.

LAW OF FORGIVENESS

To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel.

LAW OF DUAL THOUGHT

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

LAW OF SUBCONSCIOUS

As soon as the subconscious accepts an idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest that demand – accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

LAW OF GROWTH

Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

The mission was to read and memorize these laws… Okay. Then the weird stuff… I started associating these ideas all over the place and my wife started coming to me with examples that SHE was finding… Once I saw it, I can’t stop seeing it!!

 

 

Week 13 – Gratitude Cards

Once again we are handed an activity that I GET. I have heard it. I have read it. I have recommended it. I have never done it… consistently… over a long period of time. I am so grateful that I have committed to this course and surrendered to the process as it is laid out by the Fabulous Januszewskis… They could join a circus and be the Fabulous Flying Januszewskis… I digress. This whole Master Key Experience has been activity on top of activity that I have been introduced to and agreed that COULD work, I’ve just never slowed my life down enough to participate… and have it spoon-fed to me. A question that I am now asking myself on a semi-regular basis is, “Is this habit good for me?” I am SUPER excited to see the BREAKTHROUGH moment in my life. It HAS to happen soon. With all of the positiveness flowing into my brain and all of the FOCUS flowing through my magnifying glass of purpose… you people in the front row might get a little splash back… I’m just sayin’. It’s going to be like Gallagher’s hammer on soft fruit!
