MKE – Week 8 My Compass

Week 8 I’m loving the Master Key Experience!

This week I added onto my Dream Board, Completed recordings, and followed the program everyday.  There weren’t any big events for me this week – no trips, no medical issues for either of us, but I misplaced my Compass!

This wasn’t the only little glitch thrown my way, I was actually locked out of this Blogsite, but was able to solve that challenge so quickly and easily that by this time, I have all but forgotten it.

However, the compass I’ve been wearing gone, was an interesting experience.  It was almost like I was lost without it.  I searched every where imaginable, and could only think I took it off somewhere else in the house.  I searched under the cushions at the place I normally sit to read, beside my bed on, in under the nightstand, all around my kitchen sink window.  Where could it be?

I substituted wearing a bracelet that I had placed the compass on several times, and this served to remind me what direction I was going!  However it was still a nagging omission to be without the actual compass!

How could this habit have become so quickly ingrained?  Now it became even more a habit to wear the compass, because it is now in my brain.  Maybe in the future it will be unnecessary to actually wear it, because my imagination will carry it, and keep me aimed correctly!

As always, I’m sure there’s much more to report, but my focus this week centered around my compass!

This may be my first late post!

I found my compass.

Want to find yours? 

 

 

 

MKE – Week 7

This has been the most amazing time and yet I feel as though I’ve gone backwards at the same time really moving forward!

I’m enjoying the mental cleanse immensely and believe I’ve kept my outlook as a neutral observer easily.  There have been some frustrating moments, but I seem to be catching them in time!   I am absolutely thrilled at seeming to have a lot more time than ever before.  I’m enjoying the pace of the study!

Thinking is what I seem to be doing all the time, yet things everywhere are neater and my “service list” accomplished is really making me feel terrific!  Meanwhile, I’ve never taken much interest in music!  Sure I took the basic piano lessons for a number of years as a child, so I’m grateful to be able to read music, but I would not be able to identify a key from its sound and I cannot easily tell the lyrics when sung.

Consequently I had to think a great deal about the kind of music I enjoy.  Clearly the Gospel music of Elvis is worth listing.  So my background of my audio clip contains this song of Praise:

I’ve found the search may not be what I thought it was — I feel content and competent.  I feel freedom to pursue my dreams and yet still tweaking to be sure.  Can I be a contributor, a part of something large? I can easily do this.  I am still discovering it!

The sounds everywhere are something i notice more.  Early today, it was raining softly when I went outside.  The tiny misty drops made a glorious sound that seemed amplified when the drops hit trees which have not yet lost their leaves for winter!

I’m so delighted we have variety!

More to follow!

 

MKE – Week 6

I want to share my excitement as I show you this picture of our cabin located about an hour away from our home.  We’re going to fix it up to have a welcoming and relaxing weekend place! The inside is a blank slate — one room with a partial wall in the wrong place.  So, like a fresh canvas, we will make our new creation!

Our Cabin – Before…

We’ll have a lot of fun working on this place to make it inviting and cozy and comfortable.  The area is absolutely gorgeous.  I imagine coming here to relax and take photos, take walks, and sketch after we finish the project!

Meanwhile its a great exercise working on the floor plan we want!  Later the steps will be picking out all the materials that will make this place a fun place to relax.

Light coming through the umbrella of trees.

What does this have to do with week 6?  It’s just a little piece of my vision board!  I’m very excited about the possibilities!  It’s not a wish, not a dream, but it is becoming a plan!

 

MKE – Week 5

What a week!   We had out of town guests, so my study routine was kicked a little bit.  I adapted as much as I could, but missed some of the training and also got a little bit off schedule.

For me, however, I can say I am celebrating the “service” card!  I’m jumping up and down excited that I’m getting these things done.  It makes me feel like anything is possible, and I suppose that is the intention!

As I will next work on my first revision of my work in progress “Press Release,”  I am thinking about all kinds of additional things to add into my vision of life.  That zest to live is within me.  I feel it!  My usually inactive body has come to life.  I’m tired when I fall into bed at night, but I sleep so soundly.  Life has become amazing!

Thanks MKE!   This is great.  Anyone else feeling like that as week 5 comes to an end?

We drove our guests out to a remote place we have in the Woods of West Virginia.  You can see the bright sunny sky and the color of the season!  I love the shadows and bright areas.  I took pictures of things I’d like to sketch or paint.  Our colors are present and the path ahead is there because someone has gone before us.

Deep breath, relax and be there in the moment.  My mind was racing to all the “things” I needed to be doing, but then I thought, Relax. Enjoy it!  Breathe in breathe out.  Be there.  See the beauty and be thankful!

I had a great time!

 

 

MKE– Week 4 More

I felt compelled to write just a little snippet more to my previous Week 4 post…

After I read some of other people’s words on the week last evening, I awoke with an incredible sadness, feeling like I might be dropped out of this group for my failure to communicate deep feelings.  My inadequacy feeling overcame me for a little while.  (And as you might guess, all the little things the could go wrong, did.)  But then I took a little time out.  My observation was that my own post seemed so shallow, as though written by one of my young grandchildren.  My mind wandered.  But then, I thought, this is not something I have practiced.  I cannot expect to immediately be exceptional doing something that I’ve never done before.  Oh sure, you can see my first post here was the major part of a decade ago.  How many posts were that?  So I’m totally delighted that the blogging I always wanted to do is a REQUIREMENT here!   With practice, I will surely get better!  Maybe I’ll develop style.  Maybe I’ll develop fascinating content.   Maybe I’ll send a powerful message.  I can be what I will to be!

Now it is time to focus on some beauty.  Now it is time to do what I said I would do.

I always keep my promises.  Breathe in, breathe out.

MKE Week 4 — Who am I Lord?

Who am I   (Click/listen)

As I sit here to write out this post, I’m filled with the awe that some of the ideas of my youth are being stirred in the MKE readings!  I got so busy! Life went on day by day.  I thought I was stopping to smell the roses, maybe not! (And what is busy?)

I’m suggestible and always keep myself away from really bad influence as I know how much the power of suggestion impacts me.  So at least I have given myself some measure of protection.  In fact, some might say I live in a bubble!  Meanwhile here come thoughts that I’ve also stuffed to the background:  Someday, I will paint again.  Someday, I’d like to see Australia.  Someday, I will learn more about therapy animals and visit in nursing homes.  Someday, I will become a larger political contributor!  Someday, I will be a better grandmother.  Someday I will be the one who shows everyone appreciation.  Someday, someday!  Someday is NOW.

Who am I?  Am I the smile? Am I the twinkling eyes?  Am I the one who does or the one who waits for life?   “I” am coming into focus.

I am making decisions to simplify the things in my life and add more people.  I am closing out the noise and opening up ideas.  I am feeling much gratitude for this experience and want everyone who is a part of this group to feel its blessing.  My eyes are open to possibilities!

“I”‘m evolving!  We’re evolving!

Week 1 – Thank you to the Universe for this invitation! I will do my best.

I’m thrilled to be here!  Over many years I’ve heard from friends about how great it is to participate in a Master Key group.  Consequently with this opportunity before me, I jumped at that chance.

It has been a crazy week getting oriented so far this week, and overwhelming to get a grasp on everything I should be doing.  In fact, I wanted to use my own blogsite, and listed it in my application and not this one.  It is something I started years ago and never finished.

So if that’s any indicator, my big present for doing this project will be to achieve completion!  I want very much to learn how to blog, and to actually DO IT!  There are other things I’ve been studying, and like this, I get a nice start, understand the overview, and then …      I am changing that now.

So words phrases such as would have , or should have are banished as of now.  I am a person who does what she says! I love being here and want to stay!

Week 2 Master Key part 2

I hope I’m changing -ever-so-slightly as I am continuing my training and study!

It’s a great and yet challenging experience.

Week 2.  In the middle of the week I recalled something out of my childhood experience.  We lived for a while in a multi family home with 3 or 4 apartments.  The family upstairs was really crowded in and their kitchen and living room spaces were small.

Even though I was only around 10 years old, I knew distinctly that the woman was so looking forward to having a new larger home.  She was the most messy person I had met to that time.  He counter tops and furniture tops were all loaded with piles of things, and papers, magazines, all kinds of “stuff.”

I knew that she expected that when they move that would all go away and be better.

This week as I pondered my own plans for improvement, and my habit changing, I wondered how that worked out for her!  Did the miracle occur when they moved?  I’m sure I visited them in the new home at least once, but I cannot recall whether or not the clutter was cleared.

For me clearing the clutter is going to be something I’ll be so pleased to accomplish!

 

Week 3 – The Master Key Experience

There’s  appreciation sitting still. Allow every muscle in your body to tune in and relax!  Move from the ends of each toe up through every inch of feet, legs, and body.  Feel the energy rush in to replace tiredness.  That is total exhilaration.

Other actions are filled with stress and tension mounts with trying and trying!   Try to find things, try to do things.  Try is a negative word!  So replace it:  Instead work toward a goal, feel good about each step and each accomplishment.  Relax!

Speed Reading Seminar, it is a wow experience with extra tidbits applicable to all of life– as well as this program.

Stretching and feeling pulled and pushed !  It’s fun, a battle, it’s hard, it’s easy!  Maybe better to be, like the healthy violet leaning slightly toward the light.  Be and grow.
