THANK YOU & GOOD BYE

As I have been writing thank you notes for my birthday gifts my heart is overflowing with gratitude, including this MKMMA Program!  Learning to stay positive, not give opinions, believing in my own majesty and being nature’s great miracle, as well as getting in touch with my unique gifts and purpose are definitely worth being grateful for!

The beautiful people I have met, learned about through their blogs as they have opened up their hearts and minds as we traveled together on this journey, and heard share on our webinars have been wonderful gifts as well!  My MasterMind Partner is a Special Gift!  Our gifted leaders have been sent to us by the Universe as another very special present that kept leading us to more and more unique and rich resources.  Thank you once again!

I even learned some technology resources-not nearly as many as I wanted or needed-but nevertheless, many more than I ever thought I would.  Usually, if I had a technology problem in the past, I would just scream my ex-husband’s name and he would come running and rescue me.  When I got divorced, I lost that benefit along with more than I want to mention!  Now I think of Emerson and Self Reliance and am doing much better in many areas.

Since I now Know that I Know, the Truth is mine by going into The Silence, by going to The Sit.  I have been a long- time meditater, but with a different mindset.  Also, visualization with Belief brings the Miracles promised…Stay Positive and Grateful.  These are my Gifts…Thank you and Good Bye Dear Ones.

Love and Blessings to All

Transformation…Reclamation…not Aging?

My birthday was the 21st and this past week with all of the emphasis on it taking more effort to be a failure than to be a success and being my True Self and really living with the Laws of Least Effort brought me to that day ready to start a new year a different person!

The question I am asking…or answering?…is who is this person?  I definitely am different as a result of MKMMA and all the work that I/we have done and am still doing/will keep doing.

If time doesn’t really exist, then my body may be aging, but the spiritual “I” is not.  In many ways I feel I have reclaimed many parts of myself that were either lying dormant, being ignored or discounted because of multiple traumas happening simultaneously.  Now the answer to that question, “what am I pretending not to know”, may have been the trigger that caused the cascade, if we are in fact the reason for what happens in our lives?  Certainly the divorce part, hard to believe it brought on the car accident, but my reaction times, etc. can all be factors.  All the complicating factors from injuries, law suits that followed that and resulting in my losing my professional career, etc. did not leave my world in harmony at all!  Instead, nightmare of negativity and conflict reigned supreme!  Fight and flight is what I did and kept doing for too long.

The suggestion to destroy your old life so you start a new is what I am doing.  My belief in the Master Key concepts is complete and this past week I felt the calm acceptance of Least Effort of everything.  I remember the gifts I have and am ready to take them out into the world.

Haanel 23:10 “The power of attention is called concentration; this power is directed by the will; for this reason we must refuse to concentrate or think of anything except the things we desire.  On the other hand, when we meet with success, gain, or any other desirable condition, we naturally concentrate upon the effects of these things and thereby create more, and so it follows that much leads to more.”

We know the more we give the more we get and since we are all connected, the energy flow is never ending!  Plug in and juice up!

#WEEK 22a — JANET ANDREWS

 Coming Out of The Silence!

My two days were not total silence and weren’t full days away from home, but they were the best I could manage for now.  However, they gave me a real taste for more!

I am alone most of the time anyway and since I have a health problem that, for now, makes it not wise for me to be away too far, I chose to go across the street to a pool next to Biscayne Bay.  That way I could sit on comfy lounge chairs and look at the water, sky and skyline of Miami Beach and everyone was gone to work, so I had the place to myself!  After a few hours however, the renovation on the highrise apartment building across the parking lot did start bothering me.  Day 2 I chose to go over after 5PM.

Interestingly enough, some of my biggest revelations came within the first 3 hours of just sitting looking at the sky and water.  After that I became more convinced of my DMP and wanted to meditate and reread all of Haanel, most of my underlined parts anyway.  It, the readings,  all seemed to fall into place in my mind then.

I thought back over my life and how so many times things had worked out exactly the way it is described in the book when I would think about what I wanted in my life and then it would manifest:  people, situations, opportunities (including ones I didn’t, but should have taken), trips and homes.

My meditations were more lengthy and deep!  I don’t think I have ever felt so connected to my Higher Power as I did on the second day.  When there is no time clock, the Spirit moves.

My second day ended because my daughter had been gone on a ski trip and I hadn’t told her about the days of silence before she left.  So she returned and called me.  I had decided that I wouldn’t worry her by not answering the end of the second day, so that is when I stopped.

All-in-all it was a very rich experience that I found myself wanting to repeat very soon.  In fact, in many little ways I was wanting silence in my life for a whole week after that in places where I would usually have sound, like classical music first thing in the morning-silence-or to have a meditation tape to go to sleep at night-silence-eating-silence!

I am calling some of this time now more mindfulness.

See Your Way to Perfect Health

I was so fascinated by the Master Key readings for this week that instructed us to “Make a mental image of physical perfection, hold it in the mind until it is absorbed by the consciousness.”  “Many have eliminated chronic ailments in a few weeks by this method, and thousands have overcome and destroyed all manner of ordinary physical disturbances by this method in a few days, sometimes in a few minutes.”

I have no trouble believing this…I have stopped an asthma attack in the middle of it by starting to meditate seriously.  However, I am used to meditating…I hadn’t just started as a novice, but someone had suggested that it could help, and to my amazement, it certainly did!  In fact, I have not had an asthma problem for 2 1/2 years.  Several other health issues I have been able to overcome through this “power of positive thinking and prayer”!

The visualizing perfect health makes so much sense since we do “remake” our bodies cell-wise within a short amount of time as we were told, so the power of our minds can be put to use if we just BELIEVE.  I have been interested in health and psychology all my adult life, so these readings are very welcome and reinforcing and coming at a much needed time…surprising?

My poor mother suffered from, it seemed, an unlimited number of illness, surgeries, congenital and hereditary health problems.  Many brought on by poor health habits as well and extremely hard work.  I did not want my life to be a repeat of hers, so I focused on exercise, healthy food and a healthy lifestyle, but can’t avoid heredity.  Education and psychology helps immensely, plus MKMMA!

Visualization of Perfect Health is now a regular habit along with the other wonderful ones we have learned!  Thank you Master Keys.

#WEEK 21 — JANET ANDREWS

THINK BIG …AND BE PERSISTENT

We don’t serve ourselves or Our Maker well by Playing Small!  How often have we heard that, and then Week #21 Haanel tells us the same thing!  Then the word I was working on observing in everyone this week, but saw dramatically in myself, and even got numerous comments from friends about me, was “Persistence”.  Put the two together and you have the MKMMA Program!

Interestingly enough in my life I have thought and produced Big…and then…also interestingly enough as well, found a way to destroy it.  That is if we believe we are responsible for our outside world…and we do…right?

So, before now, of course I believed it was always “somebody or something”else.  So making a run at this time I know better.

Things are not manifesting in my life as I had expected at this point.  Many wonderful things have happened, but many obstacles and difficulties have happened as well.  The Program has helped me deal with them instead of cave-in, but I don’t have the successes to point to that I was envisioning for this point in the Program and my goals.

Staying positive, continuing to visualize, doing as much of the Program activities as possible and Believing is how I choose to show my Proud Persistent Nature so I will Rise Big Again!

LOVE AND BLESSINGS TO ALL

#WEEK 20 — JANET ANDREWS

Courage to Recognize Real Spiritual Power

“The Spirit of You is… You; without the spirit you would be nothing.”  “The one and only condition of spiritual power is use or recognition.” “It is this power which will enable you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully.”

This past week the characteristic that I have been observing, searching for and actually feeling in myself has been courage!  The real courage I am seeking is using this Spiritual Power!  In our sits we concentrated on the fact that   ‘”In him we live and move and have our being” is literally and scientifically exact.! That you ARE because HE IS, that if He is Omnipresent He must be in you.  That if He is all in all you must be in Him! That He is Spirit and you are made in “His Image and Likeness” ‘

I believe all of this and have most all of my life.  Applying this in a powerful way to bring my DMP into fulfillment is what my Hero’s journey is all about!  Visualizing, breathing in the “Pranic Energy”, realizing the inspiration from within keeps me going when the many obstacles threaten defeat.

Knowing we are Nature’s greatest miracles and that our uniqueness is a gift to the world is part of the positive thinking that is required daily to stay connected as that channel we are to the Universal Mind.

I cannot pretend not to know that fatigue, illness, failures, hurt feelings, and disappointments are the tools that expand determination, courage, renewed faith, meditation on health and forgiveness.  The grist in my mill that produces silky smooth wheat that feeds my Spiritual Power!

#WEEK 19 — JANET ANDREWS

I AM…???

The problem and/or the solution; the question and/or the answer; person programmed by society or the self-determined Hero; nature’s greatest treasure and/or “the red-headed daughter” that was supposed to be “the red-headed son” that cost my Dad the day I was born $10 he lost to his military buddies he bet $1 each even though he is blonde and my mother had black hair!

After watching the fantastic movie “I AM” I have been pondering those questions and more while also relishing the marvelous concept of our being so connected to everyone and everything in this world!  I have believed this before watching the movie, but had the concept reawakened and reinforced!  I also am more aware that much of my lack of personal connections (not digital) is contributing to certain “issues” I am struggling with.  Being a BLUE and an extravert, my energy level is drained by not being in close personal contact with other humans.  Grocery shopping or riding the bus doesn’t count!  Being online or on the phone doesn’t do it for me either. Neither does seeing a doctor or riding in medical transport vehicles with people who most all speak Spanish, including the driver!

I want to speed up the time frame for the volunteering portion of my DMP…then I will have a regular schedule for being in personal contact with people I will care very much about.  No wonder the consulting/training part of my career was so successful.  When I lived in my “beloved Reston, VA”, the success of that planned community was based upon homes, shopping areas and recreational facilities all built around little villages. No strip plazas, long rows of homes or pools, tennis courts or small lakes separate from each other.  They were all clustered in villages that contained a little of each connected by pathways and common wooded areas making neighborhoods dotted with play areas so that my kids could even walk to school through the woods and over little bridges that crossed viaducts for draining away rain water…it was beautiful!  Streets ended in cul de sacs that made great soccer fields.  The idea was to have people of all ages, nationalities, religions and income levels be able to live together.  It was not perfect for sure, but it was the first economically successful planned community…the ideal!  27 best years of my life.  My 3 offspring are living highly productive lives of service with a wide variety of friends from all walks and nationalities of life for which I am very grateful.

My faith in my connection to my Higher Power, the Universal Mind, and the importance of my positive thoughts used with the powerful intent available to me with the tools from this Program answers for me what I AM!

ONWARD AND UPWARD

#WEEK 18 — JANET ANDREWS

CRASH…but NOT BURN

This is the week that “for all good reasons I could give you” I completely blew “it seemed” all the things I had learned in The Program and for one day I was the worst version of my “old self”!  It wasn’t pretty or nice…and I was feeling crushed, but I really wasn’t found out?

The next day I summoned all the techniques at my disposal, forgave myself because I had not had my materials, phone, or computer available because I was in the hospital for a couple of days, and started reading Og’s Scroll V!  It was like it had been written just for me: “I will waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortune’s, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart, for why should I throw good after bad?..Can I relive the errors of yesterday and right them? Can I call back the wounds and make them whole?…NO Yesterday is buried forever and I will think of it no more.” “I will live today as if it is my last.”

Writing notes, sending e-mail cards, praying, meditating, watching sunsets along the Bay after walking and getting back into my rituals as much as I could while still getting groceries and the other requirements of life helped.  So did my Guide and sharing and readings in the Alliance.  In the past, my “old self” would have gone into weeks of depressive, negative self-talk and added to my damaging family relationships that are so important.  Instead, healing is taking place.

Lessons learned, however, is how quickly I can get off track when put in high stress situations and don’t use/remember what I have been learning, work on/have at my readiness!  My thoughts are mine and what I choose to assign to them are also mine.  The same is true about recovery.  The thoughts and feelings about my “old self” emerging and how I have a choice to stay that way or decide to return to my “new self” because I believe that is more my true identity now and how I intend to continue to live my life is key!  Progress not Perfection is my motto.  The Law of Growth.

In the past I would become very successful and then do something to sabotage it…never understanding why.  Now I think I do.  It wasn’t congruent with how I saw myself.  I would achieve according to my desires and goals, but unworthy I guess?  I was very good at consulting and helping my clients become enormously successful because I could see the gifts they had and helped them develop.  They always referred to me as a “miracle worker”!  I just chose my clients carefully.  Now this Program is teaching me “the way” to apply it to myself I think.

There is so much work I want to accomplish with my DMP I can’t let failure be an option.  I have skirted death too many times that I know my Higher Power is not done with me either.  Reading these obits makes me want to leave one that the key points describe in my DMP, so …

#WEEK 17HJ — JANET ANDREWS

ANSWERING THE HERALD’S CALL

I have always been radical!  As Bob Procter said in a video on Joseph Ebel’s blog, people who are radical are mentally strong.  Now that I didn’t realize.  To have lived through what I have I should have realized it?  So this week finally facing some things I was pretending not to know, I gave myself permission to answer the Herald’s Call!

Is it also a coincidence that I decided on a new network marketing company to immerse myself in that seems to fit so well in so many areas?  My housing situation has given me an option at least.  My Vision is crystal clear and my faith is strong, so I believe my energy level will pick up as medical issues are resolved.

As I continue to do the activities of the Program to the best of my abilities and use the inspiration from my Fellow Travelers, the journey is becoming more peaceful!  As I look back over my life and see the difficulties that I used to frame as negative, Og has reverberated this month as opportunities…aha!  Now I see how they are in fact the actual canvas that provides the backdrop for my Vision.  What makes me so very Unique to do what and why I am so passionate about making it happen.  Why my “brushes with death” were just that…I still have work to do!!!

Being seen as radical by those closest to me made me want to have them understand…but now that is OK, no more.  I am marching to my own drummer and, actually always have; and when I look back over my life, I can see some really wonderful things that have happened because I did.  So why stop now?  My mind can and will overcome with the help of the Universal Mind  and my MKMMA Family!

#WEEK 17 — JANET ANDREWS

STAY CALM & BELIEVE

“Every obstacle is just an opportunity for us to learn and grow our character one moment at a time!” Og Mandino

I made a card with that quote on it and have been carrying it around with me all week along with the card from Earl Nightengale’s tape.  Sometimes it feels like I’m overdosing on character building experiences lately? Lol  Earl  says to just stay calm and keep believing, so that is what I have been focusing my thinking on.  I get so much from reading everyone’s blogs and the Alliances.

The characteristic that I chose to work on this week was “Special Knowledge”.  It really didn’t have much significance for me and now I am not sure why I put it so high on my list?  Continuing with kindnesses was much more valuable.  What I have noticed about how the Program has helped the most this past week when confronted with so many challenges was that I would have panicked and lost hope, but instead I stayed with the behaviors as much as possible, although I did get behind, and found comfort and answers and hope!

I do believe “I am not on this earth by chance.  I am here for a purpose…”  Og tells us!  I also believe, “ask and it shall be given you”.  Last week I missed being hit by a car by inches as I started to look out in front of our little local bus to see if any traffic was coming so I could cross the street.  A car sped past as the bus driver blared on his horn causing me to leap back out of its way just in time! “It was not my day,” as my two military sons are fond of saying!  God still has work for me to do.

As Mark challenged us in the webinar Sunday, I am working on giving myself “Permission” to have the life I am intended to have in spite of the obstacles I meet along the way that continue to build my character to be what it needs to be to “strain my potential until it cries for mercy” as I bring my DMP into fulfillment!

Love and Blessings My Dear Friends on This Journey
