week 24 grateful

Reading Haanel 24 this week made me become aware of all the wonderful things and exercises we have done these past months in awakening our future self.

i have learned to look and become the observer of myself and it has opened my eyes to the truth of things in life 🙂

24-5. When you come to know that every form of disease, sickness, lack and limitation are simply the result of wrong thinking, you will have come to know “the Truth which shall make you free.” You will see how mountains may be removed. If these mountains consist only of doubt, fear, distrust or other forms of discouragement, they are none the less real, and they need not only to be removed but to be “cast into the sea.”

24-6. Your real work consists in convincing yourself of the truth of these statements. When you have succeeded in doing this you will have no difficulty in thinking the truth, and as has been shown, the truth contains a vital principle and will manifest itself.

the way we look or think about our lives shall determine the outcome of the story/ life!

this is really amazing to have learned this through this course and i am more then ready to apply this knowledge in my life and the life surrounding. because i know now the meaning of life: ‘ find your gift!’ and the purpose of life: ‘give it away!’

24-18. The absolute truth is that the “I” is perfect and complete; the real “I” is spiritual and can therefore never be less than perfect; it can never have any lack, limitation, or disease. The flash of genius does not have origin in the molecular motion of the brain; it is inspired by the ego, the spiritual “I” which is one with the Universal Mind, and it is our ability to recognize this Unity which is the cause of all inspiration, all genius. These results are far reaching and have effect upon generations yet to come; they are the pillars of fire which mark the path that millions follow.

24-19. Truth is not the result of logical training or of experimentation, or even of observation; it is the product of a developed consciousness. Truth within a Caesar, manifests in a Caesar’s deportment, in his life and his action; his influence upon social forms and progress. Your life and your actions and your influence in the world will depend upon the degree of truth which you are enabled to perceive, for truth will not manifest in creeds, but in conduct.

i give myself the permission to be whole perfect strong powerful loving harmonious and happy. because i know that the absolute truth is that the I is perfect and complete. It gives me such a jolt of energy reading paragraf 18. its like in the part from adaptation we saw. we do things and don’t know always why but they can effect generations to come so that they can thrive and live!

i am grateful to be part of this movement

i am grateful for the things i have learned

i am grateful to see now more and more the truth

i am grateful to become my future self

i am grateful to have written my DMP

i am grateful for the support i got these past months

i am grateful for the nice blogs i read

i am grateful for the masterkey

i am grateful to be able to love you all

week 23: use your imagination!

Let me start with a great quote from someone i really admire. ‘logic brings you from A-B imagination takes you every were’ this famous qoute from Albert Einstein popped up a couple of times this week in the Franklin makeover exercise! And it became very clear to me that this is for me the most important activity in my Life! Using my imagination, thinking out of the box and creating a new reality daily for myself and the ones i love so much.

Focussing on imagination this last week, changed my point of view i had on the course and how i can become more self directed with the insights i learned from it! The deeper i dive the more i becomes clear that i myself am responsible for al the things that happen in my life. This insight helped direct the thoughts and ideas more and more. during the sits in the mornings i now see my whole day in front of me. I walk trough my entire day and image how it will all turn out in detail. Every step i take is there in great detail and full color.

I imagine myself how great it feels to achieve the things i planned for that day and how these plans turn out just like i wanted them to turn out. i even see different outcomes if i make other choices and don’t see them as set backs but as opportunities! And you know what this last week it was like all the things i ‘imagined’ during my morning Sit worked out just as i planned them!

Hannel points this wonderfully out in part 23

23-4 The forces of life are volatile; they are composed of our thoughts and ideals and these in turn are molded into form; our problem is to keep an open mind, to constantly reach out for the new, to recognize opportunity, to be interested in the race rather than the goal, for the pleasure is in the pursuit rather than the possession.

keeping an open mind is maybe the most important step in the whole Mkma Course. the more is started to discover on my journey, the more apparent this became! Let go of fear and open your heart and eyes to what is begind our fears and worries! Its al light and love!

23-9. The average person is entirely innocent of any deep thinking; he accepts the ideas of others, and repeats them, in very much the same way as a parrot; this is readily seen when we understand the method which is used to form public opinion, and this docile attitude on the part of a large majority who seem perfectly willing to let a few persons do all their thinking for them is what enables a few men in a great many countries to usurp all the avenues of power and hold the millions in subjection. Creative thinking requires attention.

Yes attention for the details and many possibilities behind those details is very important during the proces of creative thinking, the daily sits made that very clear for me! Directing our minds like Og states: ‘ weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts. Is what we should al learn our children, but i guess children do this instinctively, it is the outside world and the grown ups that start to limit these gifts of thinking out of the box.

23-10. The power of attention is called concentration; this power is directed by the will; for this reason we must refuse to concentrate or think of anything except the things we desire. Many are constantly concentrating upon sorrow, loss and discord of every kind; as thought is creative it necessarily follows that this concentration inevitable leads to more loss, more sorrow and more discord. How could it be otherwise? On the other hand, when we meet with success, gain, or any other desirable condition, we naturally concentrate upon the effects of these things and thereby create more, and so it follows that much leads to more.

Thank you for reading and i love you all!

Week 22a: eternally grateful to Expand and Grow.

IMG_2186

Being Self directed and more then ready for the great adventure i am in, i feel so much gratitude for all the. Thank you Mkmma for giving me the oppurtunity for learning met to handle the greatest key in life. This Key will open up many doors for me and my soul. Everything i ever hoped for is opening up to me like a flower that awakens in the morning sun.

Learning to master my emotions is maybe one of the greatest and interesting exercises i ever did till today. The more and longer i sit and dive into lesson 22 of Haanel the more i feel and become aware of how we are living in a world that is so externally focused. Our world is a place where we let our emotions run freely without thinking about the consequences for ourselves and others. For years i tried to change these external forces without any big results and most of the time i ended up more frustrated and tired. I am so grateful i found the Mkmma and the many insights it has brought me!

22-5. It is through the law of vibration that the mind exercises this control over the body. We know that every mental action is a vibration, and we know that all form is simply a mode of motion, a rate of vibration. Therefore, any given vibration immediately modifies every atom in the body, every life cell is affected and an entire chemical change is made in every group of life cells.

22-6. Everything in the Universe is what it is by virtue of its rate of vibration. Change the rate of vibration and you change the nature, quality and form. The vast panorama of nature, both visible and invisible, is being constantly changed by simply changing the rate of vibration, and as thought is a vibration we can also exercise this power. We can change the vibration and thus produce any condition which we desire to manifest in our bodies.

The more i focused on the above sentences during my sits, the more is started to get in tune with the sound of the universe. I learned that if you resist and refuse to listen the harder and louder it sounds but the moment that i start to listen to this sound/ vibration the more i get in tune/ harmony with it.

And the sounds or vibrations starts to get softer and softer until i am completely surrounded by a warm glow and i see things more clearly. I can see my past self do the things i once did. Its Like a movie playing right in front of my eyes, i could have these moments earlier before the Mkmma, but now i have more control over these movies. I can rewind, zoom and focus on details in the stories i see without getting overwhelmed by the feelings that were once attached to them. yes learning to control my emotions and get more out of these past moments and really learn from them. Yes i feel so happy and grateful to be alive an having the honor to have all these emotions without getting overwhelmed by them.

This is maybe the greatest gift from the Mkmma as we are becoming more and more self directed and getting more control over our own life, it struck me how powerful we all are! I want to share this story with everyone i meet!

22-13. The way to health is founded on the law of vibration, which is the basis of all science, and this law is brought into operation by the mind, the “world within.” It is a matter of individual effort and practice. Our world of power is within; if we are wise we shall not waste time and effort in trying to deal with effects as we find them in the “world without,” which is only an external, a reflection.

Discovering this world within is so wonderful and mind blowing. All that we need is right inside us :). I see my old self disappear and see my future self appear!

i love you all!

Week 22: welcome to the biggest journey in the world!

This week it struck me like lightning how al the things we are doing until this point is so beautiful connected to each other. How Og and Haanel and Emerson are teling us the same story over and over again and all the holy books from over the world are telling us exactly the same!

Our study about Fear, anger, Gilt, hurt feelings and Unworthiness looked very strange to me in the beginning but now since the new scroll from OG and Haanel is see now the greater plans Mkmma had with these exercises.

and when i saw Dr strange this week, a Marvel production, it all fell together like a big jigsaw puzzle

 

i will post more the coming days!

i love you all!

Week 21:pleasing personality

 

This week in the franklin makeover i had a focus on Pleasing personality.

images-3

So what to look for exactly? and am i a pleasing personality and how do i become or be a more pleasing personality?

If i let my ego talk i would say: yes of course i am very pleasing, i make people laugh and i like people around me. But is this really the truth and is there a way to grow even more this way?

‘People with pleasing personalities make other people feel good about themselves. They keep a positive point of view and demonstrate flexibility and patience. They treat people fairly and with respect.
and they also tend to be good listeners and conversationalists. They handle situations well and share their opinion in an agreeable manner. People with pleasing personalities typically like people and interacting with others.’

quote-you-should-be-a-pleasing-personality-instead-of-thinking-about-how-you-should-be-pleased-nirmala-srivastava-53-45-42`

Pleasing personalities don’t come falling out of the skie, no you should become a pleasing personality and then the law of attraction would come into place and let these people come to you. Instead of looking for this outside of myself i started looking within for this first, am i this and how can i grow to become a more pleasing person? Asking these questions gave me the insights and brought me closer to the above insight! The law of giving and receiving is action! the more pleasing i become the more i see and attract these pleasing personalities.

the above quote from Normala Srivastava really hits it. Don’t think how i should be pleased but think how to please others, be kind to them and be grateful for them being here with me.

and reading haanel this week showed me more of this law of attraction

21. 10 From this science we learn that every thought creates an impression on the brain, that these impressions create mental tendencies, and these tendencies create character, ability and purpose, and that the combined action of character, ability and purpose determines the experiences with which we shall meet in life.

21.11 These experiences come to us through the Law of Attraction; through the action of this law we meet in the world without the experiences which correspond to our world within.

21.12 The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that “like attracts like”, consequently the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as correspond to its nature.

i like reading Haanel and doing these sits they really make my day. Yes i had a couple of strange weeks behind me where i got confronted with my old blueprint and habits. but the most beautiful thin came to me. I have learned to see these old habits and i have learned to  take care of it without any hustle or struggle. It has become a new habit to see things happen in my life and take the right steps to take care of them.

I have really grown towards a better self! and i am allready looking forward to a new week towards the end of these Mkmma sessions. And i made already a decision to start this course again next year!

I love you all!!

Week 20: Discipline

I had some bumps in the road these past couple of weeks. But the movie Hector and the search for happiness gave me a jolt of energy which brought me back on track.

i have learned so much these past few weeks and what i really missed was a moment where i could just stand still and look at where i am now. What has changed over these past few months and is it really what i hoped for.

So i took this into my sit this weekend and i ended up with a great insight. the moment i try to stand still and look at the things at what had changed took me back to scroll 5, i have  the change to life today not tomorrow or yesterday but now. I should let go of the past and just be me… Now in this instant. why should i try to stand still and gaze backwards…

and suddenly i saw my self sitting in my chair and i was zooming out and i soon saw the city i was in and Europe and before i knew it i was flying around the sun. And our sun was flying around in the great universe , as i was zooming out even more i realized the thing i asked in the first place: ‘please let me stand still’ was suddenly a very strange question. in this great universe everything is constantly moving around why should i even try to stand still for a millisecond, it is just not logic from this point of view…

So i returned to earth back to the place i was sitting in my chair and i dove into my own body. I saw the texture of my skin and the hair moving as i was breating in and out. and as i used my magnifying glass i went deeper, under my skin. I discovered that my organs and lungs and heart were constantly moving, i went even deeper and now saw my cells which in their turn were also constantly busy and moving around and in those cells even more life and movement. So i realized that instead of asking myself the question of standing still to reflect and look back. I should rather be busy looking at the now and what is happening now and how beautiful and temporarily this all is. Yes this insight brought me closer to Og’s scroll 5.

O what a journey this is living in the now is so powerful and magnificent! I can be what i will to be!

 

I love you all!

 

 

 

Week 19: Courage

By change we started this week with a pose exercise which was by change related to my Franklin makeover word: “Courage”. Our hero’s Journey is taking more form. the hero’s pose is also in our daily readings:

‘I lift my arms with thanks for this priceless gift of a day..’ (from the greatest salesman in the world, Og Mandino)

Well i don’t believe in change any more because i know that it is all there for a reason. It takes courage to admit that, yes this course shows us our own responsibility in the way our life unfolds in front of us. And it shows us that we can change our lives if we really want to. So we should, instead of being sad for the things that didn’t work out or look back at the things we did wrong yesterday look at this day and live life to its full potential today. the tools for achieving this are in my hands… Yes it takes courage to admit that we sometimes need help or insight from someone to get us on the right track.

It takes Courage to become the person you intend to become. And it takes courage to admit that you have to up your efforts to keep that steady growth. It takes courage to take things in your own hands and start doing what is needed to be done.

But then the question pops up in my head: ‘What am i to do when i become this person?’  When will i know that i am this person? Will i one day come in the room as the other person? Magically transformed, from one moment to the other, into the future self?

Reading Haanel and Og, doing new exercises and writhing out gratitude cards showed us so many times that real change and transformation come from within and it grows and gets form by applying this knowledge daily. Gradually i am becoming this future self and when one day someone comes by and asks you how you got to this point and how it is possible that you are such a happy knack you must be ready to accept that you have become that future self. But don’t wait until that day because there is a lot of work to be done…

back to Courage…

You can trace the word courage back to the french word courage where cour or coeur means hearth. So for me Courage is also a quest for the hearth and love. And love overcomes all and makes it all right. Come closer to your hearth and really start to listen to it. Yes it takes courage to become the person i intend to become and now i know a great secret of life for when you let your hearth speak things will start to change for you. Gradually and exponentially !

Be courage! Feel Courage! See Courage!

i love you all 🙂

week 18: Self-Control

So why did i put Self-control on week 5 in the Franklin Makeover? That’s a question i asked myself this week. Because now i realize what is behind this word. As i found out that this is maybe the basis of everything we do as a species on this earth. Yes the ability to be in control over what we do and how we act determines our life in a very profound way.

So what is behind this Self-control? so i started surfing the net and this brought me to some key elements behind this word.

5 important pillars of Self-control

exerciseselfcontrol

Balance maybe for the most import challenge these past few weeks was searching for balance. Al the new exciting things happening arround me and the Mkmma course where a bit of an challenge! How do i keep up with al the requirements and still find space for my relation, work, research, music and making art?

I found  in the fact that these requirements are not really requirements but actually choices we can make or don’t make. This was very straight forward in the new scroll we started to read this week.

I will live this day as if it is my last 

I have but one life and life is naught but a measurement of time. When i waste on i destroy the other. If i waste today I destroy the last page of my life. There fore, each hour of this day will I cherish for it can never return. (Og, greatest salesman scroll V) 

this goes way back to scroll I

I lose not a day from these readings for that day cannot be retrieved nor can i substitute another for it. I must not, I can not break this habit of daily reading from these scrolls… (Og, greatest salesman scroll I) 

So yes Self controls first pilar is very important find balance in your daily tasks and work. I mange this because of this idea about the choice i have and the permission i give me each day to work make these daily habits a reality each day since 18 weeks now!

Calmness is just around the corner after the balance i (re)found in my work and life. Its like it just comes natural to me if manage the daily routines and reflect on the day if feel calmness setting in like a warm blanket folding around me.

Determination is growing everyday since the beginning of this course. And again Og made me look at this in totally different way in scroll IV

…and now i know a great secret of life for i perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise. I am no longer fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open. I look beyond the cloth and i am not deceived… (Og, greatest salesman, scroll IV) 

that whatever goes wrong i my life i must be determined to go on because everything is a change to grow. and let me tell you i am very determined!

Confidence another important Pilar under the house of self control. I told myself the past few weeks, every time i had doubts or if i didn’t know what would happen next, that is should trust the system ( mkmma and the I or my future self). the more i did this the bigger the outcome was! so the more confident is became the more started to work out the way i wanted this to be!

and maybe this last Pilar is a bit tricky: Will Power or Willingness. I found this interesting Ted X about willingness. and i found it worked well with the peptides we talked about the last few weeks/ months.

this week was a focus on self-control but again in this franklin make over i realized that this word and the underlying importance of this word will not only shape this week but it shapes all the things we do every day every minute of our life!

As it is stated in the video the secret of self control is to give up control to be in control!

I love you all!!

 

 

week 17a decisiveness

1.
having the power or quality of deciding; putting an end to controversy; crucial or most important:
Your argument was the decisive one.
2.
characterized by or displaying no or little hesitation; resolute; determined:
The general was known for his decisive manner.
3.
indisputable; definite:
a decisive defeat.
4.
unsurpassable; commanding:
a decisive lead in the voting.

So make this week decisive week where i don’t hold back and i can be honest with myself.

So take a decisive stand so that it becomes clear to myself that i am here to grow into a mountain and not to become a grain of sand.

So go and be decisive this week so that you can look at yourself in the mirror and say: ‘ here I am and the Father and I are one!

For once be decisive and take a whatever step is necessary for yourself so that you can give more to and get more from the people around you.

Not only for yourself but for everyone close to you, far from you. Be decisive! take this responsibility and be sure that there will nobody else but yourself at the end to judge you. Take a real good look at yourself and truly say to that person i love you! Did you feel it? Did you see it? That sparkle in your eyes when you really ment it standing in front of the mirror, stating does beautiful words ‘ I LOVE YOU’. Did you look yourself dead in the eyes for as long as it was needed to see your self as the marvelous and greatest miracle?

Be decisive here in this moment!

Don’t hold back and reflect on the things that happend these last few weeks. Start to look around and see the profound changes in your life. Give yourself the permission to see it!

Let the heart go freely, learn to listen to it and give yourself the permission to feel complete, to be full of joy, to be whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy

Yes give yourself the permission to be in control of your own life…

just give yourself the permission to be decisive!

Dare to ask: Is this really happening now?

Are we to believe that we create our own future through the choices we make each day? Small steps each day sums up to the long distance you already travelled in your life. Dare to look at this road and see it as it really is, a road full of changes and opportunities. As Og States every misfortune in your life is an opportunity in disguise. Allow yourself to dwell on this profound idea: each step you take takes you somewhere in your life whether it is good or bad. Don’t be afraid of the misfortunes you will encounter, no just the opposite, be grateful and see them as real opportunities to grow into the person you are intend/ entiteld to become.

Don’t be afraid of this adventure its going to blow your mind, it is, when you are ready for it, going to be the greatest discovery of yourself. It is the greatest gift you will give yourself, Believe and you shall receive!

Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now!

Getting louder and louder!

Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now!

Yes This is Decisiveness in al its glory!

Don’t wait another day to act! Do it Now!

It sounds familiar doesn’t  it? The voice that has been talking to you all those years is now very close! Open your eyes and look closely what do you see?

It is your future self reaching out and trying to shake hands with you. Do you feel it to? the point of no return, yes the point where we reach our own threshold. Our hero’s journey unfolding an new pathway each day, each glorieus day in this life we live.

I love you all!!!

Week 17: Persistence

This week in the franklin make over: Persistence on the menu! and again i got swept away by this exercise, just by learning to focus on these words and what is behind these words makes me to see and feel more what is happening around me in the world without but more important also in the world within.

per·sist·ence

/pərˈsistəns/

noun

Defined: 1. firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. 2. the continued or prolonged existence of something.

What exactly does this word mean? Persistence is the ability to being able to stick with something. When you are persistent you can’t stop, you have to keep trying no matter how hard it gets!

“Persistence is incredibly important. Persistence proves to the person you’re trying to reach that you’re passionate about something, that you really want something.” -Norah O’Donnell

“Negative thinking patterns can be immensely deceptive and persuasive, and change is rarely easy. But with patience and persistence, I believe that nearly all individuals suffering from depression can improve and experience a sense of joy and self-esteem once again.” -David D. Burns

So Persistence for me this week was a good choice, there is are so many things happening in my life these last weeks that i had to adjust and find ways to keep up with my exercises and work i had. The persistence week showed me that i had use NARC even more. And i must say looking for persistence kept me on track! it was just needed it i guess. Great what this Franklin make over does to me!

quote-by-being-persistent-you-re-demonstrating-faith-persistence-is-simply-another-word-for-earl-nightingale-121-63-03

going back to Og scroll III opened my eyes even more!

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet succes hides behind the next bend in the road. Never do i know how close it lies unless I turn the corner. Always do i take another step. If that is of no avail i take another, and yet another. In thruth, one step at the time is not to difficult. 

I persist until I succeed.

O yeah big wake up call for myself! Yes there are a lot of things happening at this moment but it is also the moment to act upon them, because i still have to take a lot of steps before they are really a reality! and it is apparent in Haanel 17

17-28 You may be pursuing the symbols of power, instead of power itself. You may be pursuing fame instead of honor, riches instead of wealth, position instead of servitude, in either event you will find that they turn to ashes just as you overtake them.

17-29 Preamture wealth or position cannot be retained because it has not been earned, we get only what we give, and those who try to get without giving always find that the law of compenstation is relentless bringing about an exact equilibrium.

Yes the above shows me what i did wrong in the past and what now learning. I still have to give it may full attention and work hard to get where these opportunities or new routes will lead me. Well actually it is I that lead the way from now on not some other force or change. I am learning to overcome things and intuition is a great friend in my story. Intuition has been around for so long i can remember although i did not always saw it at that moment.

Persistence everywhere!

persistence-progress

17-12 the mind may place the ideal a little to high and fall short of the mark; it may attempt to soar on untrained wings and instead of flying, fall to earth, but that is no reason for not making another attempt. 

The past few days i felt like i was falling behind a bit and indeed why should i not make another attempt. If my sit wasn’t that good in the morning who is telling me not to try it again later on? Or if i forget a read or didn’t had time to finish strong one day does that mean is should not make another attempt the next day? You get where i am aiming at more persistence in my life. and every day i am growing to become the mountain and not the grain of sand!

17-13 Weakness is only the barrier to mental attainment, attribute your weakness to physical limitations or mental uncertainties and try again; ease and perfection are gained by repetition. 

Yes I persist, I win

whit each new step i grow

see you guys on the other side of finish line 🙂

 

You are all whole perfect strong powerful loving harmonious and happy!
