Today we are a couple days short of the two month mark when we embarked on the journey with the Master Key Mastermind Alliance. Sometimes it has been challenging, sometimes it has been fun other times we may have wanted to give up because when one is working to improve oneself lots of work is involved. It is not something that we can hand over to a friend or partner and say please assist me in completing this task. Every individual must do the work, whether it is the SIT in for 15 minutes, a great time of stillness which at times can be very difficult if we are experiencing any challenges in our life. Reading the Master Key assigned for each week, the Blueprint builder, our Definite Major Purpose (DMP), The Seven Laws, The 7 day Mental Diet and of course Og Mandino the Greatest Salesman in the World.
All of these readings and assignments have collectively assisted all of us to become more aware, be an observer, give less opinions no that is not the assignment, give no opinions that’s difficult when all of us are very opinionated and the most demanding one of them all no negative thinking, oops I apologize, I did not hear you, may I ask you to repeat the last few words no negative thoughts, what do you mean?
Here is Emmet Fox definition “a negative thought is any thought of criticism, or spite, or jealousy, or condemnation of others, or self-condemnation; any thought of sickness or accident; or in short any kind of limitation or pessimistic thinking. Any thought that is not positive and constructive in character, whether it concerns you yourself or anyone else is a negative thought.”
Fox even clarifies for us that we do not need to classify whether the thought is negative or positive because our heart would speak the truth even if our brain says otherwise. He is aware the thoughts would come but do not let them take up residence, think another thought.
Why have I chosen to reiterate all of this to you? We in MKMMA know what we have been doing but there are people who will read this blog and need an explanation as to why I choose to include my personal plight. Yes I have always felt there is a bigger lesson in all of this reading and meditating. A couple of days ago I questioned myself, what is the one thing that has happened for you that is noteworthy? Thinking. Yes I did the 7 day mental diet years ago, yes I knew what a negative thought was but, did I tell you be careful of your environment, they all tell us in the readings yet I allowed myself to be coerced in to a situation a few years ago (story will be revealed later in a book) and it has rubbed me of the previous lessons learned so I needed to relearn them and become a stronger and wiser person.
The end of September 2013 I woke up with severe chest pains, I thought it was my heart. Rushed myself to the ER, the doctor had the same thought it could be my heart. Further tests revealed that it was not my heart, thank goodness, but pneumonia. One year later and I was still not myself. Why? What’s going on? Each day I felt worse. There were days I thought I would never make it.
I re-read Louise Hay book during that health challenge, This is her explanation.
Pneumonia: Probable cause: Deperate. Tired of life. Emotional wounds that are not allowed to heal.
New thought pattern: I freely take in Divine ideas that are filled with the breath and the intelligence of life. This is a new moment.
Yes, I read the words but I did not change my thinking, hence the reason I delayed my healing for over one year.
Three weeks ago, I received the best gift from MKMMA. I was not expecting this gift but there it was, my body was now healthy and whole. The mental work, the thoughts all combined to heal my body and my mind when I was not even focusing on it. What an unbelievable by product, the gift of health. Thanks to Markj, his fabulous wife Davene and the other guides and experts who are challenging us and working with us to strive for better. I am grateful and hopeful that each person who is in MKMMA would receive unexpected gifts. I encourage everyone to experience the Master Key Mastermind Alliance. Be all that you were created to be. Be blessed.
