MKMMA Week 17HJ: Birthday Wishes from Og

Today is my birthday!!!!  I turn 29 today.

I may have said this one or ten times, but this is the THIRD time I’ve taken this course, and this part NEVER gets old.  I got all teary eyed yesterday.  The scroll that we have been reading for a month says, “I am nature’s greatest miracle.” It goes on for four pages about how wonderful I am, and I wasn’t always so easy to believe such wonderful things about myself.  But this Third time around, things are really sinking in.  And the last night of reading it out LOUD and thinking about the day I was born….*TEAR.

Every time I take this class, I have a growth spurt.  This time is no exception.

In my heart, my birthday is a time to reflect about where I am in life.  And this year, I am TERRIBLY PROUD of where I am.  More so than in years passed, hands down.  I’m pretty sure that has reflected in my behavior this year.  Everyone knows I am excited about my birthday, and everyone knows I’m looking forward to it.  How?  I told them! I want to Celebrate!  I’m doing pretty well!  I’m HAPPY TO BE ALIVE!!!  **Thank you for my Happiness Progression**

I feel so good about where I am in life, but I say that with a grateful and humble heart, because I have Mountains to CLIMB in my future ventures, and I don’t take the work for granted.  It has taken a lot of work to get to this point.  BUT IT’S WORTH IT EVERY STEP OF THE WAY, ISN’T IT?  To be able to look at yourself and think, “I’m a better version of my past self!”  Now, “better” depends on the person and what’s important to them, but most importantly Growth is OCCURRING, which is BEAUTIFUL, because Growth is the ESSENCE OF life!  I feel truly alive watching myself become a better version of myself because Growth is my moral imperative.  <– That’s in my DMP 😉

My current Quest of Growth is my brain; sculpting it, directing it, and controlling what I think about, because my thoughts create my reality!

I want to GIVE you all a GIFT for my birthday.  I want to share with you something that is helping me get where I want to be.  I’m listening to it every day for thirty days, Starting yesterday.  I’ve already listened to it maybe 40 times since the first time I heard it.  It is the best BRAIN FOOD SNACK.  If this were a food snack it would have 30g of Protein, 2 healthy fats, and no carbs, and taste like chocolate frosting (DELICIOUS).

Enjoy friends.

I am so blessed!  I love you all.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Where’s the cake? 

  

MKMMA Week 17 : the Greatest Gift

  
The Greatest Gift 
There are a few reasons/GIFTS/Blessings that could easily stand alone, and be such a benefit to my life that I would wholly recommend the Master Key Experience. I want to tell you about Betty and the gift the MKMMA gave me, the gift of forgiveness. 
Betty and I work together.  
First I heard of her was her employees saying something negative I’m sure, like disgruntled employees will do. The first time I saw her she looked MEAN, and I’m sure I sent out all kinds of nasty vibes. So I made my mind up that Betty was bad news. 

Well, Betty and I ended up working closely with one another, and while I was always polite and respectful, something about her bothered me deeply. I felt she was ingenuine, which is equivalent to violating a sacred vow in my code of honor and ethics. She reminded me of my mother. I. Did. Not. Love. Her.  

I realized how much my distaste for her had grown, when she did something I didn’t agree with and I felt my anger go through the roof. I was truly bothered by her actions. 
 I was throwing out MAJOR judgment.  
So about a month ago, in MKMMA class, we’re talking about the seven laws of the mind and the law of forgiveness comes up. Mark helps us clear the channel; he recites a wonderful blessing and your journey of forgiveness for whomever you need to forgive, it happens there.  

I picked Betty.  

  I knew I needed to forgive her for whatever she (didn’t) do that upset me so much. And I remember thinking “Good Lord how am I going to do this?” And the answer was so simple:

Love. Her. 
Sooo I started. I rehearsed in my brain and I prayed about it and thought about how to love her. I thought nice things about her and just thought “Forgiveness. Love her. I love you.” And really focused on it when we interacted.  
Oh and I forgot to mention, Betty was not nice to me. She didn’t like me at all. I felt she was always giving me impossible or insulting tasks and eye contact with me looked painful for her.
Well I’ll be damned, if the minute that I started loving her, she softened. I loved her more, she loved me more. I cannot believe on the kind and wonderful person (Betty) I was missing out on, because of preconceived notions, and the kind of energy I was putting out. No more.
I am so blessed by this healed wound in my life. No one should evoke so much negative emotion from me. That’s my scar. That’s my responsibility. So I will forgive and love, and I am truly blessed, because she was forgiving and loving in return.  
And my gift is the current status of our relationship. She invited me to eat lunch the other day and it was lovely! 
I am so blessed by her, and by the encouragement and support I had in initiating this change. 
I mean the MKE here.
 It was well planned out, because prior to this lecture, for a month already I’ve been reciting “I greet this day with love in my heart.” And “I know a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success.” The MKE helped me lay the groundwork for this forgiveness. They helped me clear and open my creative channel, and I keep it that way with a positive mental diet.  
Anyway, I could go on and on. But that GIFT, The gift of forgiveness, is one of the many benefits in my life from the Master Key Experience, and one of the greatest gifts of my life. It has made me, ME of ALL people…MORE loving!!! If anyone even thought that would be possible! It showed me How TO BE more loving. 
THANK YOU!
Mahalo!

Week 16: Watch what Kindness Does…

  
My favorite consequence of this class…Is it the class? It’s what we do in the class.  

Week 16 was the week of kindness, and it was heart and eye opening.  
We had an assignment: Be kind and notice others being kind. 

We had already laid the groundwork for this assignment. If I was ever not feeling kind for some reason I’d think, “love them. Be kind, love everybody.” Thank you Scroll 2 of The Greatest Salesman by Og Mandino. “I greet this day with love in my heart.”

I am a different person.  

Gifts.

“I promise to bring a gift wherever I go.”

A smile is a gift! So I smile at everyone.
I’m at work and looking for ways to be of service…with a smile!

“Hi! I’m happy to help you over here!”

Be of service.
I actually got an email from a coworker, someone higher up, and the subject said “Thank you.” She said I was “a ray of sunshine.” 

Yes. 

She called me a ray of sunshine.

I am wearing my heart on my sleeve, loving humanity, and I know it’s effecting people. 

Have you ever walked in to a room with love on your heart and on your mind? 

Just do that, and start smiling. 

 No, they won’t think you’re crazy. They might wonder where your joy comes from.  

But watch. Do it.

People relax. People are relieved by it, and those who want to, will smile back.

Where I go now, I can bring the energy. I bring the joy. I bring the love. And it is a fantastic feeling.  

People want to feel good. They want to be happy and it’s like my joy and love gives them permission to do the same!

It’s amazing. I know Mark and Dave have shared,

“When we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.” 

I get it. It’s true. 

And all of a sudden I am filled up, because I realize that I Have been SHINING MY LIGHT!

And as it states in my DMP, “I feel truly ALiVE when I observe myself being a better version of myself, because GRoWTH is my moral imperative. Progress is my fuel in life!”

I’ve always wanted to shine my light! And I see now I have been!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!

Happy Dance! 

This ability to love others and be kind and be of service and see how dramatically it effects people, this might be my favorite gift I’ve received so far in life. A gift to me, that just by carrying love in my heart for others, I can lift their spirits, even if just for a moment.

Love is the ultimate healer.  

Thank you MKMMA and all my members who did the kindness week. I felt it.

Thank you God and the Universe for this class. Thank you for the gift you’ve given to me, and to us all.
Thanks for allowing me to share with you all! I love you! 

MKMMA Week 15: I AM on my Hero’s Journey!

It just hit me yesterday.I moved two weeks ago and ever since I’ve felt unsettled and all over the place. I wasn’t keeping up with things and I wished I could be more positive and loving to myself. I’d been thinking about that for a couple of days.  

And then it hit me.

I am unsettled. I am uncomfortable. I’m working overtime to cover expenses. I’m about 5-10lbs heavier than I’d like to be but I’m not in a place to give 100% to my diet so I’m not ready to start. Oh. And I turn 29 on Jan 31.
All these things about my circumstances would almost make one think I wasn’t doing well, overall.  
And then it hit me.
Moving was the first step of my Hero’s Journey. I am doing GREAT overall! I’ve taken the leap! I feel good about where and in whom I’ve placed my faith. I am inching forward, one step at a time, and I continue to do so.  

  
I am so grateful. I’m so grateful for all my challenges and all my blessings, for they are one and the same! Thank you for the ability to intentionally create and thank you for the choice to choose our intentions. This makes us the writer and director and star of our own movie and that is a blessing, a true GIFT. 
I am uncomfortable as far as everything is NEW: routines, house, roommate, commute, part of town, etc. BUT I am actually counting WHERE I AM IN LIFE Right now as a WIN. I have ventured out on my own to create the life I want.

  If I’m looking at progress, I also believe I’ve done a great job. I had the funds available to do the move, when it was time. It barely affected my work, I think I defaulted to a black wardrobe 2 days in a row, may have looked a bit rough but nothing major.  

It didn’t BREAK ME! A major life change like this I don’t think I’ve ever handled so well, with as little unnecessary emotional turmoil and the most positive mental attitude I’ve ever had. Granted, this transition has felt divinely inspired: the timing, the roomie, the house. Not only did it fall into place beautifully, I have been overwhelmed by the loving generosity and support of family and friends.  
Peoples generosity has been inspiring! I mean, I am in serious gratitude and detriment to a certain couple who GAVE me a mattress and boxspring! I asked to borrow their air mattress and they GAVE me a mattress and boxspring. What a Blessing!!
Anyway, it seems such a loving thing to do, so graciously and generously help others, giving of your own. It makes me feel so loved when people are SO generous! 

 Well, My roommate is always SO generous! She is always saying I’m welcome to this or that and is so gracious about it all. She even bought my favorite flavor of Ramen noodles!!!? Who does that?! 

My roomie does, that’s who. 

I am so blessed!!!
So anyway, there is no recoil. Things are shaken up a bit but I know slowly and surely they will fall in to place. It will take time and consistency. And in the meantime, I have a life to create! It’s time to dig in deeper on the exercises! Be more excited and create something more exciting! It will be HARMONIOUS!!!
Ok, time to get to work. I love you all. And remember you are Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious, and Happy!!!

MKMMA Week 14: The Herald is Calling, I Hear Her.

  
I

feel that familiar call. It’s in the wind. I feel it like that good feeling when you breathe in cold air, so clean and crisp it fills your lungs. 
It’s time. 

It’s a call to be better, to do more. 

It’s time to step up.  
I am on a mission, and it’s as if I’ve woken from a dream where I wasn’t doing everything I could to reach my goals, so closer to a nightmare than a dream.  
Nevertheless, there is no satisfaction until I have pursued the opportunities given to me to their fullest..
Now is the time to make a plan to accomplish this. What steps do I need to take, what habits do I need to adopt as a service to my future self? And more so, what is it that the future should look like? Does the future look different than I originally thought? 
I go to my special writing spot, and my song comes on the radio. 
“I’m free to be the greatest, I’m alive.”
With this I offer to you, I’m back to the drawing board. To revisit my DMP and make sure I am being true to my heart and soul. It’s worth the time to make sure, obviously. 
God bless, I love you, thanks for reading.

week 13: I have an Earnest heart and desire…

to be in harmony.

  I have an earnest heart and desire to be in harmony with my MKMMA peers. I want to apologize for falling behind.  As I heard on the week 15 webinar, there are some going through personal traumas that are still keeping up with their blogs.  I have no excuse! Only an earnest desire to get in be in harmony with my peers. 

So here is my week 13 blog.  I’ve found myself in a rut and now I will proceed to dig my way out. I refuse to quit. But there is no giving less than 110% either.  Now is the time, so I put in the work.  

I’ll start with an attitude of gratitude, recognizing where the MKMMA has made a HUGE positive difference in my life.

I am in the process of a major life change.  

In the past, before MKE, a life change like this would have been (has been) extremely disruptive, like, it was all I could do to keep myself together with something like this going on. I’d struggle to get to work on time, or maybe struggle financially. 

First thing, this transition symbolizes that I am truly believe I deserve to have what I want: Major positive step! 

Not only that, I am making a major transition now, and I’m keeping it together, somehow, miraculously!  People in my life have stepped in and offered their support, in every way I could ever need. I have prayed to maintain a calm and collected state of mind, for the smoothest transition possible.  That is a very different blueprint from the old overly-emotional me.  

The Universe has provided everything I could possibly need.

I am BLESSED. 

 But then again, I am nature’s greatest miracle! 😉
I feel gratitude radiate like warm sun on my skin, I am SO blessed!  

I told my tribe I was struggling a bit, and working my way out of a rut. So? So then, someone messages me, offering support and accountability as I climb my way out of this rut. I am so blessed!

 I know there is no quitting. There’s no going back. I am buckling down because quitting is NOT an option. 

 This class, this Master Key Journey, has continued to IMPROVE my INNER STABILITY AND FOUNDATION, I am so grateful. So grateful.  

The next blog won’t be far behind!

Thank you for reading and feeding my earnest desire!!

Love you all and see you soon!
Alicia 

Week 12: STILL persisting….

I am a week behind in blogging. This is my blog for Week 12, and Week 13 is due by tomorrow at midnight. But that’s ok! At least I’m getting it done now. 

I do not want to let Christmas be an excuse to slack off on trying to create my new, wonderful, & fabulous life! Alicia 6 months from now, Alicia 18 months from now, she is counting on me! 
Truth be told, I’ve been prioritizing Christmas things for one function or another, basically trying to keep up with everything. Lately I’ve been getting things done the night before or the day of said function, but not sooner for some reason?! 
Like I told you earlier, I’ve been putting off blogging, and putting off blogging, probably because I didn’t want to reflect on the fact I’d not been prioritizing the exercises!

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been nonstop busy, productive even! I’ve made potatoes for this party, and fudge for friends and family, and had to get a present for this party, and all the usual beef stroganoff. I could have Prioritized blogging and I didn’t. I let it go for a whole week, multiple opportunities. 

I’ve been doing GOOD things, but not what is going to add the most VALUE to my life in the long run. 

I am sharing this so you’ll know the signs!!! If you start to notice these, reign it back in! Get on a webinar. Listen to Ch. 13 or ALL of the master key audios. Just remember, Quitting ISN’T an Option! To quit is to Perish.  

I want to thank Sarah and Luc for guest speaking on the Webinar for Week 13. There were so many messages on that webcast that I needed to hear!   

This journey is not an easy one, that’s a large part why so few do it. It’s not easy! Sarah and Luc both paralleled it to SCALING a MOUNTAIN so it’s OK if it has been challenging so far! 
 GOOD NEWS FLASH: It about to be EFFORTLESS for me, because I have developed the habit of persistence. With four tiny habits, I am persistent in manifesting my dreams.  

I make a persistence to do list.  

A small list to make sure I’m hitting each of the four habits every day.  

MMA + DMP + PMA + WPOA 

I do NOT have the energy to slack off and then give myself a first class lashing because I broke my promises. I am not interested in that at all, it sounds dreadful, and I know from experience it is! 

So I’m going to give it a rest. It is the 22nd and there is still much to execute.  

Every day I make it a priority to do all mental exercises, the entire working plan of action, and be a vigilant guardsmen consuming only good brain food.  

Give more get more! It is worth it!!!

I do not default. I stay on guard. Give more, get more. Just like, “be the change you wish to see in the world”, how about “be the change you wish to see in yourself”. 

I imagine the life of my future self, and that wonderful life is created by my great habits! 

One of the things I decided about my future life is that I would feel incredibly loved. That is a feeling I could always use more of, and why not generate that for myself? So, with the Law of Dual Thought, I associate the completion of a mental exercise with feeling cared for, nurtured, and deeply loved by my past self. It also promotes those feelings for me toward my future self, because I love me and I want her to be whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy!
