Week 24 MKMMA Continue the Journey

Wow I cannot believe it.  It has been 24 weeks in the MKMMA journey. It has gone by so fast.  We have learned so much about the brain, the subconscious, how to write and visualize our Definite Major Purpose and much more.  Mark J and Davene have given us so many exercises to continue to practice well into the future.  We have commencement on Sunday but that does not mean it is the end.  I will continue the exercises, continue the silent sit and meditate and definitely revisit the lessons that we have already embraced.  And there are still additional scrolls in the Greatest Salesman in the World to study.

I want to thank Mark J, Davene, Trish, and all of the team, and my wonderful guide Beth who stuck with me throughout all the weeks helping me visualize and emotionalize my DMP.  This course has opened my eyes to so many possibilities.  Providing a mastermind alliance is so very helpful.  Reading how others experienced the course was very inspiring.

In last Sunday’s webinar Mark J and Davene played a video that was also very inspiring.  It talked about a brain app.  You might want to check it out.  You may have something that is nagging at you that you can’t quite figure out and this video just may help.

You also might think about experiencing the next MKMMA course and see what your future could be, it is well worth the time and journey.  I am glad that I never stopped believing in this course and continued with the exercises as each day just gets better and better.

I hope that your days just get better and better too.

Week 23 MKMMA Law of Least Effort

This week one of the things we were instructed to do was to create four more index cards and on one of the index cards we were to write “Laws of Least Effort: Having accepted things as they are, I will take Responsibility for my situation and for all those events I see as problems.  I know that taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation (and this includes myself).  I also know that every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit”.

This week in the Franklin makeover my action was “getting organized”.  As the paragraph above points out “having accepted things as they are, I will take Responsibility” and boy did I need to accept my office the way it was and it was definitely take responsibility for the disarray it was in.  I had piles everywhere.  Talk about distracting.  I don’t know about you, but for me it had gotten to the point that I could not really think in my office.  I had a system, yep this went into this pile and that went into that pile and so on.  Until it got to a point that when I went to look for something that I thought was in a certain pile and it wasn’t and I could not find it, I knew I had to buckle down and get organized.

So I went about going through each pile and filing each sheet of paper into manila folders and then into the file cabinet.  I am still on that task as this is not a one hour or even one day accomplishment.  Boy oh boy did I need to get organized.  And nope I did not find that piece of paper that started this chore (oops we now call chores services).  And I love that.  As I am getting my office organized I am actually being of service to my family, myself, and my business.  Once my office is organized and I keep on top of things and I am consistent and responsible in putting everything in its place daily I will have more time for my family, myself and my business.

“I also know that every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit”.  And the greater benefit in getting organized is definitely less stress, the ability to think straight and most importantly having more time for my family. I am no longer wasting time searching and searching for something in piles as I now know where it is filed.

Time for my family, time for myself, time for friends, time for my meditation, and time for my business – it can’t get any better than that.

I am perfect, whole, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, happy, healthy and organized.

 

Happy Days!

 

Week 22A Am I ready to be self directed

This week was a break week and there was no webinar.  This week was also our first week to be self directed getting ready to spread our wings and leave the nest.  There are only three weeks left in this amazing journey with the MKMMA course.  That does not mean we are done.  No way.

This is just the beginning.  We will continue to learn and grow as there will be three more scrolls to read in the Greatest Salesman in the World after the course is done.  And I am sure Mark J and Davene will have other fantastic ideas for us to continue our journey.

I was a little nervous for this week.  What shall I do?  The first thing that I did was to sit in silence and contemplate all that is happening and then decided to go back and read all of the scrolls and some of the masterkeys.  It is amazing how my understanding is different now then it was in the beginning of the course.  There are parts that I see now that I did not see in the beginning.  I think that happens in whatever we do.  As we grow we see things differently or see things that we did not notice before.

I also continued to notice random acts of kindness and courage.  While in the grocery store there was a family with four children I would say all under the age of 12 and the oldest was doing a great job helping her mom with her younger siblings.  She seemed to enjoy her role as the older sister and was having fun with them.  It was beautiful to see.

I watched a father in the park teach his son to ride his bike without the training wheels for the first time.  The child was scared, but tried anyway.  He fell off the bike twice before succeeding and he was so excited when he succeeded.  He did not care that he fell off.  He did not care that he scraped his knee.  He was just so excited and proud that he finally rode his two wheel bike by himself.  I congratulated him and gave him a high five.  He just laughed and went back to ride his bike.

I look forward to my outings.  I look forward to noticing random acts of kindness, courage and providing random acts of kindness myself.

What did you notice today?  With all of the negative news on the television and radio it is great to stray a little bit and notice the positive and love in the world.

Happy Days!

 

 

Week 22 MKMMA Focus

We don’t normally get much rain in the Phoenix area, but this year and last we have had a very nice share of  rain and with the rain come weeds and grass growing in of all places it was not meant to be, my desert lawn area.  I have not been able to keep up with it so this week I took the time to get caught up.  I pulled weeds, trimmed bushes, used the weed wacker to cut down the grass and that was my full focus for a few hours. So what does this have to do with my MKMMA experience?

Once I was finished and the yard was looking good again I went about the rest of my day.

It was quite interesting for me.  For the rest of the day and the next each time I closed my eyes what I saw was green grass and weeds.  I could see them in detail.  The length of the blades of grass, how green they were, the shape of the blades, each weed that I pulled and the color of the weed.  Wow. Why would my mind and memory go there immediately when I closed my eyes?  I realized that because for a few hours that is all I focused on.

Each week we have assignments to complete to help reprogram our brains for a better future and a better self.  We read out DMP (Definite Major Purpose), our movie poster, the blueprint builder, flash our gratitude index cards, notice random acts of kindness, write one mini sentence of something positive from each day, a little bit of exercise each day, read the Greatest Salesman in the world assigned scroll, the masterkey, sit in silence for 15 minutes, concentrate on our dream board, etc.

This week we were asked to unplug for a few hours.  No phone, no internet, no TV, no radio you get the picture.  Just relax and enjoy the things around you.  Let your mind wonder.  No multi tasking, but just enjoying the time.  We all need to unplug at times.

I realized that if I could see in my mind each detail of the grass and weeds by just focusing on them for a few hours what could happen if I unplugged and focused on each area of my dream board and visualizing my DMP, playing my movie poster in my mind what my mind would see when I closed my eyes.  I would see my DMP and movie poster as it is happening now.

You are what you think about all day long.  The world within (our minds) creates the world without (our current life experiences).  I am comfortable with the way my life is right now, but not excited with it.  I like what my DMP focuses on and so as hard as it might be, I will unplug even for just a little bit to focus on my future self and future life and see it vividly.

Are you happy with the way your life is currently or just comfortable with it?  I am very happy with the MKMMA experience and what is it teaching me.  My future self looks very bright.

 

 

Week 21 MKMMA Everything is a miracle

I wasn’t sure what I was going to blog about this week.  I really couldn’t think of anything then I thought about this past Sunday’s webinar.  Davene, Mark and Trish all spoke about miracles.

Albert Einstein said “There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.  Einstein chose everything is a miracle.

What do you believe – nothing is a miracle or everything is a miracle?

My first thought was why only two choices?  What about some things are miracles and some are not miracles?  Really everything is a miracle?

As I listened to the webinar I realized that Davene was correct.  If we think miracles are only huge fireworks of biblical proportions we are missing out.  Davene talked about thinking of miracles as an action. Recognizing them in everyone and everywhere.

I don’t know about you, but my life is hectic. So many things to do everyday.  I am always thinking about what do I have to do next and missing out on noticing all the miracles around me daily.  Until the MKMMA course I was like that.  Now I stop and smell the roses.  But I still did not think about everything being a miracle.  Wow how amazing.  Miracles all around us everyday, everywhere.  Recognizing miracles.

As Davene talked about miracles as the art and act of recognition, I became aware of all the wonder all around us.

If everything is a miracle then you are nature’s greatest miracle and I am nature’s greatest miracle.  The sun rising in the morning, the moon rising in the evening, the stars, and the planets; the birth of a baby, their first steps, their first words; learning to ride a bike or drive a car.  What happens when we plant a seed?  We see a new plant sprout from the ground to become a plant.

What miracles to you recognize?  Love, a smile, a tear?  Things you might not think of as a miracle, but just some common occurrence is really a miracle.

Now I see miracles everyday all around me.

As Og Mandino writes in scroll IV “I am nature’s greatest miracle.  No beast, no plant, no wind, no rain, no rock, no lake had the same beginning as I, for I was conceived in love and brought forth with a purpose.  In the past I have not considered this fact but it will henceforth shape and guide my life”.

I am nature’s greatest miracle and so are you.  Notice the miracles all around you and you will have a great day.

 

 

 

Week 20 MKMMA Train our brains

I did not think about this before Trish mentioned it in the last webinar.  As we are learning and practicing the flash cards, the sit, the shapes, the linking of shapes and colors, the dream board, our DMP, movie poster, reading the scrolls, the master keys, the guy/gal in the glass and new assignments in the next weeks, I kept linking all of this to my current DMP and PPN’s.  But as this class is coming to an end in the next few weeks these exercises do not end.  Our learning continues. Our DMP continues to grow, evolve, and change.  We are training our brains.

As I achieve parts of my current DMP, I will add others.  I will have a thought in which I will create a plan and then execute that plan.  The sit for 15 minutes is helping with this.  As you sit in silence the subconscious goes to work and revelations happen.  Then we continue by adding to the index cards and flashing through them.  We don’t stop at the end of the class.  Our futures are what we can imagine and work towards.

One of the exercises to help us continue and not get off track is a mastermind.  I have an amazing mastermind with my very close friend and she will definitely keep me on track.

These two questions are part of my flash cards, but if I seem to forget about these two questions my mastermind friend is right there with a smile and a reminder.

 

  • What am I pretending not to know?
  • What would the person I intend to become do next?

I have not had an aha moment yet, but I know that it is manifesting.  As I train my brain with all of the MKMMA exercises and masterminding I know that my DMP is just around the corner.

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.

Happy Days!

 

Week 19 MKMMA Grateful for everything good and bad

One of our assignments for the past couple of weeks was to read one or more obituaries everyday.  Quite interesting.  You learn quite a bit about the person from reading their obituary.  All about the person’s family, his interests, his occupations, and his life.

Two questions Mark J asked us to ask ourselves as we read the obituaries.

 

  • Do you think that person would like to change place with you for one more day?

 

  • Who can you let know how grateful you are in your presence today?

Great questions. I would believe that most would like to change places for one more day.  Maybe to hug their kids just one more time, or hug their spouse just one more time or maybe help a friend just one more time.

Why not do all those things while we are still here on this earth.  I think that a hug, or a smile, or a helping hand may make their day.

Do you think by reading one or more obituaries everyday would put things into perspective?  I know that it does for me.

Og Mandino writes in Scroll V I will beat upon my heart with gratitude as I consider all who greeted yesterday’s sunrise who are no longer with the living today.  I am indeed a fortunate man and today’s hours are but a bonus, underserved.  Why have I been allowed to live this extra day when others far better than I, have departed?  Is it that they have accomplished their purpose while mine is yet to be achieved?  Is this another opportunity for me to become the man I know I can be?  Is there a purpose in nature?  Is this my day to excel?

By reading one obituary each day reminds me how fleeting life can be.  Don’t waste the day.  Be grateful for something and someone each and every day.

During the last webinar Mark J talks about how gratitude is a cause, it is not an effect.  Being in a state of gratitude causes more things that in turn create more gratitude.  Gratitude like kindness is contagious.  Give more, get more.

Mark J also talks about giving thanks for everything whether good or bad.  Give thanks.  As I am listening to Mark I am saying to myself, yea right. Give thanks for all the bad things that have come into my life along with the good.  It is definitely easier to give thanks for the good things.  He talked about giving thanks for bankrupsy and health issues and any thing that can you think of.  Wow.

Mark explains it this way.  Gratitude is a cause not an effect and it instantly blocks out fear and establishes faith and creativity comes from faith not fear.  Bad things are going to happen whether we give thanks for them or not so why not be thankful and learn from those experiences.  Be grateful for tough things and good things as the law of growth.

You never know where each experience will lead you on your journey.

I am grateful for the sun shining down today, for the stars in the sky at night, my mother’s unconditional love, my son and daughter’s hugs, my husband, avoiding a car accident by just turning into the gas station instead of going straight, breast cancer in 2004 and conquering cancer.

Be grateful for everything big or small, bad things and good things.  Where will these experiences and gratitude take you?  It could be wonderful.

Happy days!
