Master Key Weeks 19-22 EXCUSES

Excuses- they are not hard to come up with…I was just swamped with crap, I just could not find the time, my dog ate my papers, I stubbed my toe and it was killing me… … …

I did a 4hr period of silence and feel that I am on my way back to taking care of me. Working on me. Working for me. Working with me.

I can’t believe I have let my blog posts slide. I feel the pressure. Will they kick me out? OMG! but I’ve continued with my daily readings and sits, my cards and shapes. Stop this nonsense Dorothy, you are doing the best you can. (or is that just subby telling me it’s OK to quite)

NO- I’m not quitting- get up, get back on that horse, raise those arms high in victory!!!

And then there is OG. Scroll V

I live this day as if it is my last. I waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortunes, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart.”

I hear-by PROMISE to keep my PROMISES and I always keep my PROMISES!

Master Key- Week 18- Flowing Gratitudes

Gratitudes. Assignment: write 3 new/different Gratitudes a day on your index cards then add them to your pile and read the cards daily.

I’ve heard and read that doing this exercise will take you to greater heights. I’ve tried it on and off over the years but have never been consistent until it was assigned in this course.

In the beginning I was a tiny bit skeptical. That’s a lot of things to be grateful for.  I didn’t think I could come up with that many. Still, I knew I had to be persistent and do what was assigned if I truly wanted to change my life.

What I discovered was: along with writing out the cards and reading them I caught myself verbalizing what I was grateful for out loud, to friends and people of service that I was working with. It just started to flow without even making a conscious effort to do so.

Friends would put on a big smile and tell me how much they appreciated me. The service workers would go beyond what was asked, which put a big smile on my face. I saw sincere gifts being given and received.

Kinda makes my day Great!

Have you found any difference in your life since writing out these Gratitude cards?

I’d love to hear about them.

I always keep my promises.

 

Master Keys 17B- B-AWARE-The Hero’s Journey is EVERYWHERE!

Seems like everywhere I turn, everything I see, everything I hear can be related to The Hero’s Journey.

What a great reminder for me. Yep, I’m on my own HJ like so many others on this planet. The other day I went to the movies to see “The Greatest Show”. WOW! I wanted to get out of my seat and cheer, with enthusiasm, for the storyline. From the concept to the alliances, on to the success, downfall and faith I saw myself playing that game, and what an exciting game it is.

Somedays I walk around thinking the Master Keys are just another gimmick. I’ve fallen for more than my share of gimmicks. Then something miraculous happens and all I can do is smile, give thanks, and renew my faith in this program and most importantly, myself.

Back to the movie: The music has some fabulous foot stompin music and as an X-Tap Dancer it really moves me.  Very motivational and very moving…like Rocky running up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum.  Makes you want to get up and MOVE!

I love music. I play it 24/7. So I purchased the sound track and haven”t stopped listening to it.  I have a 4hr. drive one day a week and it keeps me awake and alive. Yesterday I was groovin down the 405, 6 lanes of traffic heading south of Los Angeles, when one of the songs I’ve heard at least 500 times already started. I know the words now and started to sing along when all of a sudden I was choking up, tears running down my face, couldn’t breath. What the heck… The song is called “From Now On”.  Just a sample of some of the lyrics:     Click here to listen

From now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights
From now on
What’s waited till tomorrow starts tonight
Tonight
Let this promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on

Chorus

And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again!
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again!
The chorus is what got to me. I found myself with my hand over my heart sobbing.  I KNOW I’ve been looking for HOME for some time. Home is where my heart is. I’ve been getting messages from the most interesting places.
I am grateful that The Master Keys are taking me forward to where I belong, HOME!. My authentic self.
Living and Loving LIFE!
I promise to hold tight and not off  this amazing journey!
I always keep my promises.

Master Key- Week 17

I dislike missing a Sunday meeting.

I was doing a show this past weekend and was unable to get on the webinar Sunday.

Even though I have continued on with my sits, cards, Makeover, etc. I was anxiously waiting for the replay on Thursday. These webinars really set the tone for my week and not being able to hear them until they are posted makes me a little crazy. I’m so grateful that hey are posted at all and really appreciate the MKMMA for all their hard work in providing us exactly what we need to grow.

The Kindness I experienced at the show was amazing. People were coming out of the woodwork with kindness. I bought coffee, on set up day, for the exhibitors in my row  and the kindness continued for the rest of the show. Every morning someone bought coffee for all of us.

I had an amazing show. I sold more jewelry at this show than I ever have and I must contribute it to the fact that I am in a different headspace, all because of this course.

Since the show I’ve been given so many ideas, in my sits and out of the blue, on how to create more of what people desire that will enhance all our lives.

Can’t wait to try them out at the next show!

We are all natures greatest miracle and each of us has so much to offer.

Thanks MKMMA for providing this knowledge of remembrance. We came into this world with this knowledge…sometimes we just forget.

I always keep my promises!

 

 

Master Key- Week 16

You can feel it, sense it coming, there’s nothing you can do..oh my, have I created this through my thoughts? How can I stop this?

OK, ok…so I’ve been thinking this one particular thought for over three years. Yep, 3 years. It has always been incased in anger with a lack of self respect.

I took this part time job as a favor. Little did I know at the time it would engulf my life. I allowed it to become a time and a half job and I gave up my dream to be the best jewelry designer on the planet.

After the first 18 months I began saying “I just need a break”. “This is too much”, etc. I said those words on a daily basis to everyone that asked me how my job was.  Within 4 months I was in a head-on car accident. Walked away with a shattered wrist. Got that break I needed. Did I put 2 and 2 together? Nope, I brought a friend on to help do the job until I recovered. They quit after six months. We are no longer friends. The job was just too demanding. They thought I was crazy.

I continued on for another two years yearning at times for the simple life of creating and traveling. The money was too good to let go of. The more I made the more I spent. I got a new car and paid it off in 2 years. I took a larger apartment, bought more beads for when I had time to design jewelry…all while saying “I hate this job and I’m going to quit.”

Well, this week I was trying to justify why I haven’t quit by saying “I’m not a quitter”. In reality I gave up all respect for myself, the company and my co-workers about a year ago but kept keeping-on, just  for the money.

For the past few months the writing has been on the wall in bright bold letters. Jobs were being cut. I was in denial. My departments budget went from 2 million to 300k. Some people will have to go. “Not me…I helped start this department”. I’ll make it easy on them and only work 3 days a week, and on and on and on…

Tuesday I received the dreaded phone call. “Your services are no long required. Thanks for all you’ve done, this is not about you, we love you.”

I was totally surprised at my reaction. I was OK with it, remember…I was asking for it for 3 years.

I’m back in the jewelry business and I set up for a show today that will run through the weekend. I applied to this show in September 2017. Something told me I needed to do this show.

Sometimes the lesson takes a long time to get.

Thanks to the Master Keys I am feeling hopeful for my future. This journey, going forward, is about me and my DMP.  As I look at my movie poster I am excited to finally get back on my path.

Master Key- Week 14

Going Down Deep…to Rise Above It

I’ve watched Cool Runnings many times for the entertainment factor. In fact I tend to not “get” the real messages from movies so discussing them after viewing with friends has always been almost embarrassing for me. I avoid it like the plague.
Cool Runnings
Four young Jamaican men collaborate to be the first Jamaican Bobsled team after three of them fell during the 100-meter sprint Olympic try-outs.
Derice had been training for this moment all his life. He was confident he would be heading to the Summer Games.
Yul Brenner wanted to qualify just to get off the island.
Junior was sowing his oats because he didn’t want the life his father planned for him.
Sanka, well Sanka was the refreshing, glass is half full type of guy who was a loyal friend of Derice.

The Definite Major Purpose(DMP) for Derice, Yul and Junior in the beginning was to qualify for the Olympic Games. When they fell during the trials Derice did not give up. His determination and persistence turned into forming the first Jamaican Bobsled Team.
Positive Mental Attitude(PMA): was evident in many places. What got my attention was when Irv, their coach, started talking about the condition of their sled and Derice said “shish- she’s beautiful”
Against all opposition from the locals, Junior’s father, their government and the Olympic Officials they were determined to make it.
Plan of Action(POA): get Irv to be their coach. He would know where to go to get them to Canada. It was aligning with him that was the most important step. Once they did they were on their way overcoming all obstacles that got in their way.
Master Mind Alliance was their collaboration with each other and Irv to make their dream come true.
For Yul to support Junior during the crisis with his father was cool. Using the mirror exercise he helped him see that he was a “proud, powerful, bad ass mother who won’t take no crap from nobody.”
Loved the music, especially “Rise Above It”. A feel good, up beat tune that will help me remember who I am.

Hope you enjoy it:  RISE ABOVE IT
