One step at a time
I have found comfort this week in reading other MKE members blogs. More than ever,I found that we are all on this journey together. I am not the only one who has struggles recently with life’s challenges. I am thankful I am traveling with an incredible group of people.
I reflect on OG’s writing in scroll marked 3.
“ Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult. I will persist until I succeed.”
There is my key for the day ahead, one step at a time, developing persistence for success.
Words struggle to form in my mind for this weeks blog. It has been one of the hardest weeks of my life as I go through the challenge of my parents failing health and very difficult decisions. I have heard the saying “ the only way through is through” . I applied that many times this week. So where am I going with this line of thought, I have to ask myself? I am grateful. I am grateful for the habit MKE has taught me. I am grateful for the second scroll teaching me how to greet each day with love. I am grateful to be able to assign my chosen meaning to any event that comes my way. I am grateful I can change my negative thoughts to positive ones at will.
The foundations and practice that I have done with MKE has been my calming element for my thoughts all week long. I am most grateful for the doors that God has opened this week for my parents and the people that where in place to see things through. Thank you to all and to MKE.
I great this day with love in my heart.
Would it be nice to have a reset button for your thoughts?
The Master Key Experience has provided just that. I have been gifted the owners manual to my brain. One of the many pieces of the Master Keys is the Seven Laws of the Mind. I would like to touch on one of those laws. The Law of Substitution which is:
“We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.“
Whenever a negative thought comes to mind during my day I just tell my self “hit the reset button” . I then replace that thought with a positive one. I am so grateful for this new skill. My days go smoother and I am more at peace than I have ever been.
Week eight of this journey is continuing to shift my realities. I learn something new every week while I am on this new path. The universe is moving around me. I am paying attention. I am grateful for the growth and the new challenges I have had a chance to respond to lately. I am not the same person I was when started eight weeks ago and I am thrilled at the person I am becoming. There is no turning back now. I continue on this journey enthusiastically.
This week has been another adventure filled week with advancing my new blueprint. All of the pieces are drilling in my new blueprint. The current challenge of the week with the Mental diet has been prepared for and linked previously with no objections, the law of giving, the law of forgiveness, and scroll 2. While trying to keep negative thoughts out I have found triggers that push the negative thoughts to the surface. Now that I am aware of those triggers I can prepare myself even more to reroute my thinking in those moments. For example, driving is a trigger for my negative thoughts. So to prepare myself, before I get in the car I raise my awareness up an extra notch to shift those negative thoughts away. I also apply the heightened awareness to other triggers. Discovering the negative bias is eye opening over the past few weeks. I am happy for this new awareness and am thrilled to become a more positive person who can redirect and control my thoughts. I have been more at peace than I could have imagined in my previous state of being.
This week I had an interesting reveal. I found an additional key to unlocking feeling when I was envisioning my future. I keep my feelings in check and internal and have struggled to attach feeling to my future success. Well it happened for a brief instance. I felt the overwhelming joy of myself celebrating success. As I was returning home in my car I was thinking of my Press Release. Along with those thoughts I happened to be playing a song from Moana soundtrack. The song help transport me to Palauea Beach in Maui. A few short years from now as my wife and I celebrate our independence. The thrill I felt as she kicked her feet in the water was incredible. I had achieved my dream and we where celebrating. I was at peace and I had kept my promise. I want to bottle that feeling up to have every day. Then I returned to the present with a lump in my throat and a sense of awe. My belief in the possibility was more real than ever. The work that I have been putting into this journey is chipping away at the old blueprint. The old blueprint is weakening and the new blueprint is taking its place. I am so happy and grateful. I am excited for what’s to come in this process.
Challenging and fun week
Week 5 of MKMME continues to challenge and produce results. This week the challenge of being the observer and having no opinions has been added. I found that I am very opinionated. I never realized how much of the conversations I engage in are mostly a back and forth of opinions, in an effort to disagree or agree. I am enjoying the role of observer and the peace that not giving an opinion is providing me. Becoming a better listener is rewarding, and I am grateful for that improvement. My brain has less to deal with and that has a welcome freeing affect giving me peace and more room for other thoughts.
