MKMMA 2017 – Week 6 – “onward and upward”

Week 6 – 23.  It is, however, through attention that you will finally be able to overcome obstacles of any kind that appear in your path onward and upward, and the only way to acquire this wonderful power is by practice — practice makes perfect, in this as in anything else.

I remember as a kid whenever we experienced obstacles or challenging situations my Dad would always turn things around by saying ‘onward and upward’, which I realize as an adult was basically his way of saying “suck it up, buttercup”, or “put on your big-girl pants”, etc.  Thinking back there were so many ‘sayings’ that my parents used in our upbringing that were so very poignant.  Most of which I didn’t give much thought of until my adult years, actually the last hand-full of years as I pass through the ‘middle years’ of my life.  So much wisdom our elders have to share and yet we mostly dismiss it all as ‘noise’.  How sad!

PPPPP – Persistent Practice Produces Perfect Presentations.  Doing it daily!!

MKMMA 2017 – Week 5 – Keeping my ‘head’ in “The Game”

This has been a ‘challenging’ week (and the past few months)!

No Opinions…

Observation of others with a new found ‘compassion/empathy’!

Not sure that makes sense…Let me explain.  When my Mother was alive she often complained about her feet and ankles (and legs) continuously giving her pain.  I never had a real understanding of her ‘difficulty’ in this area until I have recently experienced what I believe to be a similar ‘condition’.  Although there has been no real diagnosis (for me…so far) as there wasn’t for her, I can now empathize even more as to what she must have gone through for all those years. Chronic pain is something a lot of people deal with day in and day out.  I can now understand how ‘debilitating’ it can be in so many ways.   Keeping my mind ‘focused’ and ‘clear’ during this time has been very ‘challenging’!  Thank goodness for the MKMMA or I don’t know how I would have managed.

Still looking for answers to medical issues, but I know that the support I get from my fellow MKMMA’ers and close family members and friends help me tremendously!

MKMMA 2017 – Week 4 – To Blog or not to Blog!? No question!!

It’s very, very late at the moment…however…

Although it is not a “requirement” for a lifetime member, I have committed to posting a Blog each week this time through the course.  Some weeks it’s easier to do than others.  This is one of those “others” 🙂

I really don’t know what to write about, so I’m simply going to say (again possibly) how grateful I am to have lifetime access to this program…Unbelievable!!!!  I cannot imagine my life without it!  “Challenges” that arise from time to time don’t have near the same impact as they would without the ‘foundation’ and mental conditioning that this course provides.  Thank you Mark and Davene!

Until next week…Good Night!!

🙂

 

MKMMA 2017 – Week 3 – Relax and let go!!

“31.  Tension leads to mental unrest and abnormal mental activity of the mind; it produces worry, care, fear and anxiety.  Relaxation is therefore an absolute necessity in order to allow the mental faculties to exercise the greatest freedom.”

I have to say I really enjoyed this week’s lesson!!  I think this ‘run through’ of all the lessons has been even more enlightening!

“Let it go, Let it go…” (musical notes)

I’ve found myself stopping what I’m doing and taking deep breaths this week (outside of the sits), and just relaxing my muscles and ‘letting go’.  What a great exercise to reduce stress!  In doing so, I realize the level of stress I experience throughout the day, just over little, insignificant things.  I won’t go into my personal ailments, but I’m sure some of them are directly related to the ‘weight’ I carry on my shoulders.  Some stress we do bring on ourselves, like renovating our home, for instance, as is the current situation for me.  Knowing that the end result of these renovations will be so ‘worth it’ is my absolute focus.  Also, I have to say that I am very grateful that I have the means to undergo such a project.  Perhaps the previous edition of my DMP has something to do with this! 🙂

Really enjoying this session and feel that I am compounding the benefits from the previous two I’ve participated in.  And to think this is only the third week!  I’m ‘stoked’ about what the future holds!

Bring on week 4!!

 

MKMMA 2017 – Week 2 – Resisting the “Gravitational Pull”

It has been extremely challenging this week not to be drawn in to all the constant inundation of media reports surrounding the incident in Las Vegas on Sunday night.  Tragic as it was, I really had to ‘guard’ myself from being ‘pulled into’ all the repeated news coverage.  Even though I have chosen to not regularly listen to the radio or watch television, it was really hard not to hear repeated information just being out in public.  I remember one person commenting that they refused to look at a picture of the gunman, but instead focused on the faces of the victims.

Other than that, I have found The Master Key, Part Two to be a very enjoyable read this week.  So, so true in so many ways.  Especially in 28, where it states, “…and this law is the “Law of Attraction,” which is that Mind is creative, and will automatically correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.”

I must finalize my DMP as I truly understand this to be a very important part of this whole process.  I’ll be writing that on my “chore” card this week!

MKMMA 2017 – Week 1 – Here we go, again!

As I sit down to type this blog I can’t help but feel like I’ve been ‘here’ before.  As true as that may be I realize that the “here” is a different place now than where “here” was 2 years ago, when I first took this course.  The main reason I feel that way is that “I” am different than I was when I started it back in 2015.  So, although I’m not where I ‘want’ to be, yet, I’m nowhere near where I was back then.  {Hopefully that makes sense…it does to me anyways, lol!}

Looking forward to ‘leaps and bounds’ this time through, as the foundation was laid the first time.

Feeling very grateful to be a part of this opportunity to grow and change!

 

 

Week 24 – The End? …or simply the Beginning?

The final “official” Blog post with the Master Key Experience…WOW, how far I’ve come!!

Although I would not give myself an “A” grade in the course, I am certainly very proud of myself for still being here.  A committment that was made waaaay back nearly six months ago…and…”I always keep my promises, Jan Ellis !!”  🙂

This week there has been a lot of focus on the life of my late Mother-In-Law, Jean Ellis.  We ‘celebrated’ her life with Prayers and a Catholic Funeral Mass and Internment at a Cemetery.  As time was spent preparing for all of this I have come to really realize what a wonderful person she was!!  Participating in writing her eulogy, with her husband and 5 (of 6) surviving children was a touching experience.  Talking of memories we all recalled of her and the great woman and Mother she was.  I can truly say that (from my perspective) her life had real ‘Purpose’ and she gave and received a tremendous amount of LOVE.  So here I am searching for the “meaning of life” and it has been right here all along…..LOVE!!  Just give (and receive) LOVE…Truly and from the heart!!

Can’t tell you how long it took to get through that paragraph!  Her death is still very ‘fresh’.  In fact today I had a “Mom – moment” and talked about making a print of a recent photo and giving it to her to pass on to another family member.  I had to stop myself…and then ‘broke down’ for a bit.  You see she was the central “hub” of the family.  A real time of adjustment is ahead for all of us!

Back to the course…

Anyone and everyone who has the opportunity to participate in the MKE would be crazy not to. That IS my opinion, and, yes I AM an expert…lol !!  I learned that some people actually take it more that once.  When I first heard about this I thought it was very strange and somehow ‘unnecessary’, but the more I think about it at the end here, it sounds like a great idea!  I think that I would be even more committed to the exercises and would strive for a ‘letter grade’ much closer to an “A”.

All in all I’d have to say this has been an amazing “Journey of Self Discovery” and I do love the “Gal In The Glass” more and more each day!!

I’ve only just begun!!
