Week 7: Proof I’m a more self-directed thinker

I was traveling this week to Las Vegas to attend a personal development the training and visit one of my nephew’s who moved to Vegas 2 years ago. It was great visiting with my nephew Spencer and we went with his parents to see “America’s Got Talent” Live show including the 4 Finalists who performed. I was in awe watching two kids do what they love, their heart’s desire, one sing and the other a ventriloquist (who can also sing…Wow!!) It was a fantastic reminder that when we are young and before the cement starts to harden we are in full awareness of our gifts and talents, no judgement, no self consciousness. We are living our Dharma.

While in Vegas I attended a 3 day personal development training centered on “Your Story”…the parallels to the Master Keys and Hero’s Journey were popping out at me…the linkages I was making put a smile on my face. Those linkages are proof of my growth and my awareness is heightened. There were times during the training that the speaker said some things I didn’t exactly agree with. Before the Master Keys, I would have aid to myself..the speaker is the expert, I better listen to them and adjust my thinking. But now, after competing the MK course, I have a new approach. I listen to the speaker, with an open mind, knowing my watchman at the gate is on duty and will serve me the best to match my hearts desire. I allow what resonates with me to enter my mind and I leave the rest. I am in harmony. I respect the speaker and there is no judgement. In the past, sometimes I thought the speaker might not like me anymore if I did not agree with them on a certain topic….copy of a copy yikes!!! Now I know this is “incorrect thinking” as Hannel would say. I am experiencing proof to myself that I am progressing on my journey to be a more self-directed thinker. Cheers to me. =)

Week 6: Progress, elation DMP

Wow!!! I use this word often and this year it has a whole new meaning. Working thru your own cement is a adventure in itself, no doubt. I continue to knock off some stubborn peaches here and there and also am away when a new piece makes an attempt to harden. This year serving as a Guide, I am so thankful for this unique perspective. Witnessing someone realizing they knocked off a chunk of their own cement is so amazing!!! To witness the elation in their voice, the child-like smile grinning from ear to ear, the pride they feel in themselves…..Wow!! True self discovery is so awesome and an honor to witness.

Several members of my tribe have come to a point where their DMP is “released” meeting the DMP criteria of present tense, SMART goals, PPNs, full of emotion, etc. After weeks of wrestling, frustration, revisions, struggle, work, members are now elated that they pressed on and now that the fog has lifted and they have knocked off a significant amount of cement, they are re-energized and can dream again. These dreams are now captured in their DMP and they are overjoyed. That also know they have the power to adjust their DMP as needed as they continue knock off any cement they didn’t realize they had at the time and  fine tune their ideal reality.  Wow!! This is really happening. Members are experiencing excitement and a new type of “fear”….am I really this powerful? that I can decide what I want, create the demand, focus on it (magnifying glass), and Subby will manifest it? Is it really that easy? The journey continues…Wow!!

Week 5: Doing my part: Be an Encourager b/c People are on their own journey

As I have mentioned, this is the first time I am a serving as a Guide for the Master Key Course. We are in Week 5 and are really getting into the heart of the course. I am witnessing such growth in members and also struggles. Members wrestling with their old blueprints. Feeling the frustration of wanting to make changes but for “some reason” they hesitate or give into procrastination. As a Guide, I love to encourage people and cheer them on. I am also learning and have realized I need to be mindful to not “help” too much; “The Best Influence is No Influence”. I can’t do someone’s homework for them…and if I do its a disservice to them because when the test come (life) I’m not here, they need to develop the skills to take the next step. The greatest gift we can give ourselves is self-discovery. Going ourselves patience and grace to work through the cement, knock it off, wrestle with old and new ideas, decide what is valuable to keep and what to let go of once and for all. My heart goes out to every member who is willingly to do the work, struggle, wrestle, press on even when its messy, and continue to answer the call of your heart. The MKE community is a safe place where people feel they can be vulnerable enough to take such a magnificent, eye opening journey. Cheers to everyone!

Week 4: You Blinded Me with Science

This week we learn more details about the workings of the brain, the peptides, and how our blueprint is part of a neuro-net: “thoughts that fire together, wire together”. And that our cells are addicted to peptides to meet our most dominant thoughts. I was blown away last year when I watched the 20 minute video and I have watched it at least 5 more times since. I come from a science background and the brain/body/mind truly amazes me- we are all miracles!! The physical body is so complicated but at the same time performs with ease when we are in alignment with health and well being. To first become aware of what I was addicted to was scary, but at the same time I was so intrigued. After much thought, I came to the conclusion that I was addicted to achievement, and even more I got an extra hit when a challenge was hard….but I still accomplished it. Somewhere as a child, I heard “Work hard and you will be successful” “Burn the midnight oil” and “Cheaters take the easy way out”…Yikes!!!! I am addicted to things being hard and never taking the easy way (even if it would be more efficient!!) Nothing like stacking the deck against myself before I ever start to play the game.

I can say today I have made significant progress in creating my new blueprint, but it is still a work in progress. All my school years from middle school to Master’s I was successful and had high achievement , but at what cost? It was hard, I worked my butt off, stayed up late, lost lots of sleep, felt stressed out, but did get the peptide hit in the end. Looking back, if I had a different connection to peptides I could have achieved the same high level and enjoyed the process more. Such as “People who do what they love, practice, enjoy life , have fun, and get healthy rest/exercise/nutrition Thrive and are very successful!!”  Wow!! What a different approach….thank goodness I have discovered that I have the gift to choose what I am addicted to…and so do you. Choose wisely friend!

Week 3: Marco…..Polo

I am 46 years young and I can remember a time BEFORE we had microwaves, ESPN, the Internet, smartphones, Facebook, or GPS. Years from now I believe this era will be described as the great information age, where technology sped up at such a high rate that we didn’t realize at first how much we were being bombarded with information overload. It takes some time for all the shininess to wear off and what remains/endures are tools that add value and the rest fades away, just like the natural market place. I don’t claim to be an early adopter on all the latest gadgets out there, I usually keep my cell phone for several years, but I do embrace new technology where it makes sense to me and adds value.

Enter the Marco Polo app. Wow!!!! To use a cliche “truly a game changer.” This is the first year the App has been part of the MK course. This video walk-talkie type app has made it so much easier and more effective to meet someone new and get to know them faster, stay in touch more easily, and feel connected. How amazing that the cool gadgets I saw in the Jetson’s cartoon are now reality! As a Guide, I am using Marco Polo to introduce myself to my Tribe and its a way for members to introduce themselves and get to know each other. It’s fast, easy, and captures more of the real you…we can see you and hear the emotions in your voice. When I first started to use it, just like any human learning something new, it was unfamiliar and a bit awkward. But with just a few practice videos…it was a snap! Technology at its best- adding value and no additional cost!!! It blow me away that I can communicate with members al over the U.S, in South Africa, Sweden, Ireland, England, and Trinidad/Tobago for no additional charge beyond my typical cell phone plan. What?! No extra charge?? No fees?? Technology does have some amazing benefits!! And on a more personal note, I feel I have become more use to using the app, my TRUE self continues to shine. I continue to get better and better using it, I am less self conscious about how I look or exactly what I am saying. Yahoo!!! Marco…..Polo….Marco….Polo…..Marco….Polo. If you have not had a chance to check out this App, I invite you to treat yourself to some fun and effective technology! And did I mention the app is Free! While nothing will ever replace the human touch, the Marco Polo app is a cool way to leverage technology to nurture your connections with people.

Week 2: Such an Honor

It is truly such an honor and privilege to read another person’s Definite Major Purpose (DMP). I am very grateful for the experience.

As a Guide, I know giving objective feedback on DMPs is one of our primary roles. Over the summer we received in-depth training and practiced and practiced breaking down DMPs. I understood how critical this piece of the course is to members and how your DMP is central to all the exercises in the course. With the DMP breakdown training I received, I felt very prepared going into the start of the course. I anticipated I would be in awe reading my tribe members’ DMP. Coming from a background in athletics (fast-pitch softball, field hockey, basketball, kickball, ping-pong, dodgeball, hide and seek =), I always enjoyed practice because I knew that’s where I fine-tuned my skills. When it came to “Game time” I felt prepared and confident….and the emotions were at an even higher level. I related my experience to reading/providing feedback for DMPs. This wasn’t practice anymore…this is “the Game, the real Deal, member’s dreams and future realities!!” To say I was emotionally moved just doesn’t really capture the impact this role has had on me.

It is truly an honor and privilege to read a members DMP. Prior to reading/proving any feedback, I ask for Divine Guidance to be a channel and provide feedback that is in direct alignment with Universal Truth. I credit The Fabulous Davene for this approach, she provided this teaching during the Guide training. Reading first draft DMPs sends me right back to where I was a year ago; having no idea what I really wanted. And even if I did how would it become a reality? Looking back as I started the MKE course for the first time, I am grateful for my struggles along the way. The struggles are making me a better Guide, I have been down a similar path before. Yes, everyone is on their unique journey, but as a Guide I can use my experience to ask members questions so they can discover their own unique journey and cheer them on through their amazing adventure.

Week 1: So Excited to Begin

Wow!! I am so excited that the Master Key Course has begun. I always enjoy a fresh start, whether it was the first day of school, the first day of vacation, the beginning of the month, or the start of a new year.  I completed the Master Key Course last year as a 1st time member. (Sept. 2016- March 2016) And now I am starting the 2017 session as a Lifetime member and 1st time Guide. Wow!! Looking back one year ago and how much growth I have experienced from the MK experience is truly amazing.

To say I experienced some breakthroughs is a bit of an understatement in my mind. It’s tough to describe in words the transformations I experienced throughout the course.

Just to name a few:

  • Becoming aware of cement I needed to knock off- who knew I had so much?!
  • Learning what is means to be a self-directed thinker; giving myself grace as I practice and practice
  • Realizing it had been a long time since I asked myself “What do I want?” and giving myself permission to think about it and actually write it down.
  • Because I learned how to direct my thoughts, I had the confidence to step into the unknown and embrace my Hero’s Journey. I am thrilled to report I graduated from my successful 22-year corporate career in the Biotech industry on April 28, 2017 just as it was written in my DMP. WOW!!
  • I flew to Paris solo (way out of my comfort zone) to attend a training on Network Marketing skills that Davene and Mark J were teaching. I can say with confidence that without the Master Keys in my blood, I would not have taken such a bold move. The trip was fantastic and my confidence in myself soared. I really am beginning to embrace the adventure and mystery of Life, open to all the possibilities, and realizing there really are no limits, except the ones I place on myself….and now why would I do that anymore? =)

The MK course made such an impact on me I applied and took the training to become a Guide, and here I am now guiding a tribe of members as they start their unique journey. When it comes to being a Guide, “The best influence is No Influence” in terms of what people should THINK. That part must be found in the realm of self discovery. I continue to remind myself of this. Focus on asking members questions and allowing them to experience their own self discoveries. This is the 3rd time I’ve said WOW!!!!! and it won’t be my last. I am full of gratitude and appreciation for my Master Key experience. Sending hugs and love to the entire MKE community!
