Week 24 – Living True To My Nature

Our Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) webinar on Sunday was AMAZING! Mark J. brought up that self-directed thinkers live true to their nature. Mark then brought up the scripture of bearing false witness and related it to the false witness we bear on ourselves when we don’t live true to our nature.  Haanel  writes about the Universal Mind as being indivisible from us,  recognizing that “we live and move and have our being“ and are one with God. Mark J. then hit the nail on it’s head when he said  that our nature is God’s nature and God is love.  Therefore our true nature is love.  So when we act out of our masks instead of our true nature of love, we are bearing false witness on ourselves. Wow!

Week 23 – Thought as Creative Activity

What a week this has been with the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA).  In lesson 23, Haanel states, “We have found that thought is the creative activity behind every constructive enterprise. We can therefore give nothing of more practical value than our thought.“ Haanel then states in 23.1, “ The money consciousness is an attitude of mind; it is the open door to the arteries of commerce. It is the receptive attitude. Desire is the attractive force which sets the current in motion and furious the great obstacle by which the current stopped or completely reversed, turned away from us.

Week 22a – Enthusiasm & Managing Emotions

This week with the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA), we continued with lesson 22, added a new character traits, and continued Scroll VI from Og Mandino’s classic The Greatest Salesman in the World.  The combination was truly awesome for the experiential insights  I received.

Week 22 – Decisiveness

arrow-945268__340The character trait that I worked on this week in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) was DECISIVENESS.   Interestingly, I found three different definitions for DECISIVENESS.  Dictionary.com gave two definitions, “1.  The ability to make decisions quickly and effectively. 2. The conclusive nature of an issue that has been settled or a result that has been produced.” Merriam-Webster’s  definition of decisiveness was, “firm or unwavering adherence to one’s purpose.”

Week 21 – Specialized Knowledge

For Week 21 of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) I focused on the character habit of “Specialized Knowledge”. As a counselor I am always sharpening the saw, looking for ways to improve my knowledge and the techniques used in working with clients.  Recently I came across a company that offers high-quality natural supplements that meet pharmaceutical standards; they are called nutraceuticals. I’ve been using these products for several months now and I’ve been very impressed with them as I am starting to have increased energy and I am losing weight and inches off my body.

Week 19 – Fake It & Become It

Week 19’s webinar included the Ted Talk from Amy Cuddy, a social scientist, on “Your body language may shape who you are”.  I immediately saw the benefit that her two minutes-a-day body posture change make on my life and feelings as well as my clients lives and feelings. Cuddy was using the concept of nonverbal body language. There is plenty of peer reviewed evidence that supports that people make judgments on about others based upon nonverbal body postures and facial expressions. By extending this concept beyond how other people think and feel about us, Cuddy viewed how our nonverbal body language makes us feel. Why this is important is because we are talking about our thoughts, our feelings, and the bio-chemical reactions including our hormones that occur from our thoughts and our feelings. If we can easily make a shift in our nonverbal expressions that change how we think and feel about ourselves, then the choices we make, and behaviors and actions we do can also change.

Week 17HJ – Pretending Not to Know

Today’s #MKMMA webinar threw us a curve ball as we are are not moving on to lesson 18.  We are revisiting several previous lessons as well as contemplating this week on a game changing question. The question is, “what am I pretending not to know?“  In some ways the question is like a stomach punch because it really hits home to areas of my life that I let the old blueprint of fear, low self-esteem, or physical challenges prevent me from doing the actions that will create a different life and future than I have right now.

Week 17 – Character & Consciousness

This week in the Master Keys, Haanel writes about man having “dominion over all things” through our Mind. In 17:10 Haanel writes, “ spiritual truth is there for the controlling factor; it is this which will enable you to grow out of limited attainment and reach a point where you will be able to translate modes of thought into character and consciousness.“ With the concept of spiritual truth we come into it alignment of spiritual and physical laws, with spiritual laws being of a higher order then physical laws.
