“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.”
The Master Key says “To think correctly, accurately, we must know the Truth”.
The truth is…
I am whole
I am perfect
I am strong
I am powerful
I am loving
I am harmonious
I am happy
I wonder when I first lost my tendency to imagine and dream big?
I suspect it was around 4th grade when school finally forced me to turn my attention to logic, reason and facts as I spent more and more time and brain power in “reality”, and less in imagination.
When I lost my imagination, I lost the ability to see myself as someone bigger, better, deeper than I am today. I lost sight of my gift.
Today, I use the amazing power of my imagination to push through boundaries and challenges that seem insurmountable, to believe in my dreams and face my fears head on and to live a life beyond limits.
Today, I use the amazing power of my imagination to replace existing beliefs deep within my subconscious mind, to be inspired to act and behave in new ways to fulfill that end.
Today, I fly.
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
It’s amazing how far off course we can get when we’re not watching our steps. We just wake up one day and wonder, “Where the heck am I and how did I get so far off my intended path?”
Let’s take a minute and travel back in time to 1978 … this is the time when I first opened my eyes to life as an adult. I just finished reading Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain and the possibilities were endless. My desires were strong and the chaos of life had not yet stripped away my clear vision of what a healthy, happy life should be.
One day I went down to the local park and I was dreaming of the future. I started thinking of what my possible life might be 5 years into the future. This daydreaming turned into some real goal setting and I was on my way to creating the first of many “5-year plans”.
But there was one small problem … when I was dreaming that day in the park I left out some very important details. I never factored in my major definite purpose (DMP’s) or my personal pivotal needs (PPN’s). Because of that small “oops”, I have been like a ship without a sail, drifting through life without a compass … I needed to find True North.
“Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship.” – Omar N. Bradley
As I was working through the Master Keys Chapter 7 on visualization this week, I realized my major miscalculation … “Make the mental image; make it clear, distinct, perfect; hold it firmly; the ways and means will develop; supply will follow the demand; you will be led to do the right things at the right time and in the right way. Earnest Desire (feeling) will bring about Confident Expectation (thought), and this in turn must be reinforced by Firm Demand (will).”
Time to reset the sail.
Today I take personal responsibility to work through the resistance of old habits and to let my dreams become my reality. No longer will I look in the mirror to see a stranger. I am here to share my gift with the world. I accept.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never Excuse yourself. – Henry Ward Beecher
“In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure. Thus, the first law I will obey, which precedeth all others is – I will form good habits and become their slave.” – Og Mandino
It’s really that simple.
Conventional wisdom says you should always have a backup in case you can’t do what you set out to do. But sometimes, the best motivation can be to get rid of any safety net and leave yourself no choice apart from achieving your goals.
Carry on, warrior!
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” Lao Tzu
The journey begins with the first step and I already face my biggest challenges … to follow the formula, to accept guidance, to be patient and consistent…to become a student. Today I surrender to the Master Key Formula.
The journey “feels” different … I am ready to shatter the glass house and to truly live a life of passion and freedom. I’m ready to say goodbye to my fears and self-doubt, to strip down to my true self and embrace the beauty of my life and all that surrounds me.
Here are some things I am going to do as I take my first steps …
- Live a life of purpose and passion. Making life-shattering advances in who you are is hard work! Expect to encounter many obstacles. Clear purpose coupled with electrifying passion will make an easier journey.
- Live a life of magic. Believe in your dreams. Know deep down that your dreams are worth pursuing! Master visualizing your dreams in minute detail…where are you, what are you doing, what are you wearing, what color are your shoes, what does the air you breath smell like, are your hands sweating, what do the lights look like, who is sitting on your right … dream in Technicolor splendor and believe in the magic.
- Take the first step. Taking the first step is probably the scariest and most difficult thing to do when pursuing your dreams. If you take the first step, you might fall and that is scary. There will be many obstacles and even more landmines no matter what path you take. All of them will be there to challenge you and to derail you from your journey. Do not get distracted! Do not ask why! Stay focused, do the work …hold true to your vision and become unstoppable!
Carry on, warrior!
