Within the MKE Course, there is a 3 session fun Finding Your Purpose mini-course. For those contemplating the 2019 Master Key Master Mind Alliance Course, I am advocating these 3 sessions are offered much earlier.
They are workshoppy where we blend our creative minds with our heart’s true desires to find pearls of wisdom from within the core of our being.
Within a few minutes, I had two piles of cards, like rapid brainstorming of qualities in me or that I admired in others, and fulfilling positive emotions. What we needed to do was use different combinations from the two piles.
I took up a suggestion after the webby where we could ask others to tell us what they see as my best positive quality. I went through my phone list and contacted a few people.
What I would like to share is my brother John’s response to my text.
What’s important to mention is that we haven’t ever been close. John is six years younger than I and we rarely communicated and our intimate connections even rarer, perhaps 2 to 3 times in our 60 and 65 years. Last June after being away for 20 years I returned to my hometown, Adelaide in South Australia. Not much had changed in our face-to-face meetings. Within, I kept judging his opinions and inwardly I felt these as cutting remarks.
In his responsive text, John wrote:
“I thought the way you talked to Nicolette (new mother of an 18-week baby daughter, Lily) was lovely—it was you at your best—you were interested, enthusiastic, engaging—all up you showed you were ‘charming’—I really like it. It made me feel so happy you came along.”
86 y.o. great grandmother Olga holding 18-week old baby great-granddaughter, Lily
What was truly great in the moments that Olga, who has Alzheimers, shared with Lily was that she came truly alive, speaking with exaggerated facial expressions and joyful tones. Love overcomes all boundaries!
Miracle or not, I had never heard John talk to me in this way ever! So, what happened? As Julius Sumner Miller so passionately asked, “Why is it so?”
Outside of MKE, I would say first that everything is connected. Inside of MKE there is the world without and the world within. The world without is where we see effects which have their cause in the world within. The world within is governed by our habitual disposition or the way we think, feel and believe, where we might say driven by our ego or conscious part of our self.
The world without is created by our subby, the subconscious because it is the greatest genie that has ever lived. It cannot discern truth from lies, which part of any statement we make we want and which we do not. It is a mechanism if you will, that takes everything in as a demand and works incessantly 24/7 using unlimited power to manifest whatever it has been told. It doesn’t have feelings. It’s just like a poor man’s ‘super robot.’
Okay, subby “You work for me. I’m in charge.” But are you? How much of what we think is a genuinely ours? Oftentimes it is a learned, borrowing from impressions that we take in unconsciously during one or many of our life experiences. But subby is the greatest of all servants. It doesn’t need any prompting. It just does what it is asked. Exactly what you ask.
So we better be conscious of what we are asking or telling ourselves, whenever we speak and with every one of the 70,000 thoughts a day that we have. We are the creators of our own destiny. Not by saying so, but by constant repetition, directed willpower, and liberating visualisation.
My world without in the prelude to the text from my brother, was my behaviour of judging, expecting criticism, allowing the criticism in, to hurt me, feel a victim and on and on it goes…
How did that lifetime victim/poor me cycle change? Why did my brother share his intimate thoughts with me on Monday? I may have given him the opportunity by sending a text for a one word or phrase answer to a positive quality, but his response went deeper, opening up a vein of communication that had remained closed.
If our genie or subby controls the happenings of the world without, then we who are Alladins must control the world within, only directing subby with thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that create growth we truly desire.
Here is the thing. There is not one definitive action I took that I can say “It was this one or that one.” What I can say is that with pure intent good things happen. Here are some key ingredients that I concocted (acted on in good faith) to create my magical gift from my loving brother.
- By reading the second scroll of The Greatest Salesman “I greet this day with love in my heart,” three times a day.
- By affirming “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.”
- By looking into the mirror and saying “I love you.”
- By visualising the person I intend to be for 30 minutes each day.
One piece of advice I decided to take up was to affirm for other people and I did affirm for my brother that “John is whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.”
I am a grateful receiver.
