Last year was a crazy year, but we have a feeling this year will be YOUR best year ever!
Despite a universally challenging 2020 year for all, there have been so many blessings – if we take the time to stop and look.
Consider the challenges of the past year, through a different lens – the circumstances or situations that may have caused pain at the time but pushed you to evolve and grow, built resilience, forged progress, and, as a result, ultimately blessed your life. Find the blessing, be the blessing, and your life will be blessed.
As we head into the New Year and this entirely new world, we all find ourselves in, we want to give you the opportunity to grow even more and create whatever it is you truly desire – the life you were made for.
If you are like most people, you are thinking about your goals and resolutions for 2021. Maybe you want to get healthy? Maybe you want to earn some additional income? Maybe you are looking for a new opportunity? Whatever you are looking for read this.
Biggest takeaway from 2020 is: Change happens and those who adapt fast will make it. That is the true meaning of survival of the fittest.
We believe survival in 2021 and beyond requires training from the Master Key System. We really enjoyed the Master Key System reading this week. There is so much substance in Part 15.
There is so much I can link to the readings this week. Here are a few examples.
- The Master Key System Part Fifteen tells us more about the law under which we live.
- It explains that these laws operate to our advantage.
- That all conditions and experiences that come to us are for our benefit.
- That we gain strength in proportion to the effort expended, and that
- Our happiness is best attained through a conscious cooperation with natural laws.
My Master Key System exercise this week was to concentrate on Insight. And to focus my thought on the fact that to have a knowledge of the creative power of thought does not mean to possess the art of thinking. See: (4) How to use the Science of Mind, Ernest Holmes ( Excellent Book ) – YouTube
LAWS FOR PERSONAL CHANGE
The Power of Natural Laws:
The Master Key System tells me the laws under which I live are designed solely for my advantage. These laws are immutable. I cannot escape from their operation.
Difficulties, in harmonies, and obstacles in my life, indicate that I am either refusing to give away what I no longer need or I am refusing to accept what I require.
The Master Key System tells me I cannot obtain what I lack if I tenaciously cling to what I have. The Master Key System tells me I am able to consciously control my conditions as I come to sense the purpose of what I attract.
The Master Key System tells me I am able to extract from each experience only what I require for my further growth. Nothing may reach me except what is necessary for my growth.
All conditions and experiences that come to me do so for my benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until I absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth.
The Master Key System tells me my highest happiness will be best attained through my understanding of, and conscious cooperation with natural laws. It is therefore essential that my emotions be controlled and guided by my intellect and reason. The law of attraction, or the law of love, are one and the same. They will bring the necessary material for my growth and maturity.
The Power of Words and Affirmations: The Master Key System tells me thoughts also impact what I manifest in my life. It can be argued that the real power lies in my words. It is my words that provide a bold affirmation of my innermost thoughts.
Words are a confirmation to the world of how we see others, our lives and ourselves.
The Master Key System tells me the Law of Words provides: the first form which thought will find is language, or words. This Law determines the importance of words. Words are the first manifestation of thought — the vessels in which thought is carried. They take hold of the ether and by setting it in motion reproduce the thought to others in the form of sound.
Thought may lead to action of any kind, but whatever the action, it is simply the thought attempting to express itself in visible form. It is evident, therefore, that if I wish desirable conditions, I have to entertain only desirable thoughts.
This leads to the inevitable conclusion that if I wish to express abundance in my life, I have to think abundance only, and as words are only thoughts taking form. I must be especially careful to use nothing but constructive and harmonious language. When my thoughts finally crystallized into objective forms they will prove to be in my advantage.
The Law of Visualization: To successfully use Visualization and the Law of Attraction, you need to communicate your desire to the unconscious mind.
This can be done through visualizing the circumstance or event you want to attract. Do this regularly enough and in the right way, and your subconscious mind will get busy finding ways to make it a reality and bring it about.
The Master Key System tells me I cannot escape from the pictures I incessantly photograph on my mind. This photography of conceptions is exactly what is being done to me by my use of words.
The Master Key System tells me I manifest more and more life as my thought becomes clarified and takes higher planes. I have to use word pictures that are clearly defined.
The Power and Law of Thought provides: The law of mind action (thoughts held in mind produce after their kind) certainly operates 100 percent of the time at the level of the mind. Whatever we think about with emotion will affect our mental state and create our reality
The Master Key System tells me it is with words I must express my thoughts. If I am to make use of higher forms of truth, I may use only such thoughts as has been carefully and intelligently selected by me with my purpose in view.
This wonderful power of clothing thoughts in the form of words is what differentiates man from the rest of the animal kingdom.
The fact I have been enabled to come into communion with the greatest writers and thinkers of all time, and the combined record which we possess today is therefore the expression of Universal Thought as it has been seeking to take form in the mind of Man.
Universal Thought has for its goal the creation of form. Individual thought is likewise forever attempting to express itself in form. The word is a thought form. A sentence is a combination of thought forms.
If I wish my ideal to be beautiful or strong, I must use exact words. They must be put together carefully. Accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of thinking.
Words are thoughts and are therefore an invisible and invincible power which will finally objectify themselves in the form I give them.
- The beauty of the word consists in the beauty of the thought.
- The power of the word consists in the power of the thought.
- The power of the thought consists in its vitality.
The Power and Law of Truth
The Master Key System tells me about the Laws of Truths and that they are Absolute Laws. Something that works constantly on its own or is established to be consistently constant.
The Master Key System tells me the Law of Truth relates to the real truth behind my existence on this planet earth. There was total darkness which existed before the creation of this Universe. God created light, the sun, the stars, and the moon. Then God created Man and Woman as a manifest of His love.
To identify truth is to try what you are learning in the Master Key System and see the cause and effect in your life. This means, if someone you know claims to know the truth about, for example, God, then you try the things they suggest about God in your own life. See if it really works. If so then there IS truth in what you have learned.
- There is a principle of Mathematics, but none of error.
- There is a principle of health, but none of disease.
- There is a principle of truth, but none of dishonesty.
- There is a principle of light, but none of darkness.
- There is a principle of abundance, but none of poverty.
How shall we know that this is true? Because if we apply the principle of Mathematics correctly, we shall be certain of our results.
- Where there is health there will be no disease.
- If we know the Truth we cannot be deceived by error. If we let in light there can be no darkness, and where there is abundance there can be no poverty.
There can be no question but that he who “is wise enough to understand” will readily recognize that the creative power of thought places an invincible weapon in his hands and makes him a master of destiny.
The Power and Law of Compensation states “You get back what you give to others”. The Law of Compensation is another restatement of the Law of Sowing and Reaping. It says that you will always be compensated for your efforts and for your contribution, whatever it is, however much or however little.
The Master Key System tells me the Law of Compensation basically states that you will be compensated for your actions. Similar to the Law of Cause and Effect, what you do, affects what you get. What you sow, so shall you reap. But this is not about money.
The Law of Compensation is as simple as it gets. You get what you give, positive or negative. When you understand that you are directly compensated for everything you do, it will start to put more weight behind the things that you do daily and will reward you in ways you could previously only dream of.
The Law of Compensation is when you are compensated for your deeds. It weaves into your life when through the Law of Cause and Effect. When compensation pays its dues, blessings arrive. Compensation can come in many forms such as money, gifts, people, new jobs, and experiences.
We find that we can get only what we give. If we pledge ourselves to a certain action, we must be prepared to assume the responsibility for the development of that action.
The Master Key System tells me Insight is absolutely essential for the development of any great achievement. With it we may enter, explore, and possess any mental field.
Insight must be exercised so that the thought which I entertain contains no mental, moral, or physical germ which I do not wish objectified in my life.
Insight is a faculty of the mind whereby I am enabled to examine facts and conditions at long range. It enables me to understand the difficulties, as well as the possibilities, in my undertakings.
Insight enables me to be prepared for the obstacles which I meet. I can overcome them before they have any opportunity of causing difficulty.
Insight enables me to plan to advantage and turn my thought and attention in the right direction, instead of into channels which can yield no possible return.
Insight is a product of the world within me and is developed in the Silence, by my concentration.
FOUR TECHNIQUES FOR PERSONAL CHANGE
: MKE Technique for Change
One of the tools the Master Key Experience introduced me to in week 13 was called NARC. It stands for Neurological Associative Reactive Conditioning, a way to change beliefs and behaviors.
- Basically, it is a technique where you link pain to your old beliefs and behaviors that are holding you back (the old blueprint).
- Conversely you link immediate pleasure with your new preferred behaviors. Essentially, we are utilizing the Law of Dual Thought. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.
What we do in this Master Key journey is decide what we really want, our Definite Major Purpose.
Then we attached strong emotion to our Definite Major Purpose so that it becomes our strong “why”.
Now linking enormous pleasure to the experience of attaining our Definite Major Purpose increases the momentum of its manifestation.
On the other hand, we can also ask, “what will it cost me not to change?”
Then link pain to all the reasons. Make the pain of not changing so real, so intense, so immediate that you cannot put off taking that action any longer.
If that is not enough then focus on how it would affect your loved ones, your children, or other people you care about. For many of us that is the stronger pull.
: Another technique is to “interrupt” limiting behaviors or beliefs.
If you notice a behavior that you would like to change, then think of some ways you can interrupt that belief or behavior. The wilder and more outlandish it is, the better.
You need to implement immediately when you notice the limiting belief or behavior with the crazy one.
It must be something that will cause you lots of pain (i.e., makes you feel ashamed when you do it) so you do not have to do it more than a few times to break that belief or behavior.
: Equally important technique for change is to create some new empowering habits which we have doing in the Master Key journey.
We have taken control and created new habits instead of allowing the unconscious habits to take over.
Conclusion: NARC is a reminder to link pleasure to all the new habits. Reward yourself for every small improvement so that your nervous system will associate pleasure with change. Congratulate yourself for implementing every new habit. Positively reinforce every time you produce the behavior you are looking for.
: Another technique is the Franklin Makeover
Week 15 was the week of the beginning of the “Franklin Makeover.” This week’s assignment for MKMMA members is the Franklin Makeover created by none other than Benjamin Franklin.
In the “Franklin Makeover” we categorized a list of 13 virtues in descending order with the virtues needing the most improvement at the top.
Master Key Experience’s Virtues Exercise
13 Virtues M T W Th F S S
- Specialized Knowledge
- Well Organized
- Taking Initiative
- Pleasing Personality
- See God in Others
Recognize, Relate Assimilate, Apply Identify, Magnify, Multiple
Awareness is the beginning of Change Instruction:
- For the virtue you want to develop the most put it in the top spot on your spread sheet.
- Focus on that virtue for one week
- Multiple Choices
- Focus on this virtue all day
- Law of Growth-What you Focus on Grows
- Law of Substitution-Your Focus Though Substitutes and Old Thought
- Your 13 Week Payoff-You will See the Virtues in Yourself
On the top of my “Franklin Makeover” list, I had the virtue of Self-Control.
Using the list of Virtues provided, I listed them in order of what I required the most improvement. Then I listed Kindness.
So, #1 on my list is Self-Control. I require exercising more self-control in certain areas of my life, so I am focusing on self-control for the first week. By focusing on self-control for a week, I am able to identify, magnify and multiply my awareness and therefore effect change.
During week #2, which is Kindness Week, I will be posting acts of kindness either given or received into my Kindness.
This is being done to see the Law of Growth in action…” whatever I think about grows and what I forget atrophies without exception”.
Here is my Virtue list:
#3 – Specialized Knowledge
#4 – Well-Organized
#5 – Discipline
#6 – Persistence
#7 – Courage
#8 – Taking Initiative
#9 – Pleasing Personality
#10 – Imagination
#11 – Enthusiasm
#12 – Decisiveness
#13 – See God in Others – Our members focus on seeing God in others for the final week
Master Key System Week 15 Conclusion
The Master Key System exercise for this week, concentrates on the Laws and Insight.
I was able to:
- Let my thought dwell on the fact that knowledge does not apply itself.
- My actions are not governed by knowledge, but by custom, precedent and habit and action.
- The only way I can get myself to apply knowledge is by a determined conscious effort.
- That knowledge unused passes from my mind. And that the value of the information is in the application of the principle.
- I am to do these things until I gain sufficient insight to formulate a Definite Program for applying this principle to my own particular problems.
This exercise made me think of my Definite Major Purpose (DMP) and why it needed multiple revisions. This also made me think of the importance of the words written down on the bottom of my Service Card. “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious and happy.”
