Week 1 ~ Getting It

clock

It is a sentiment that I have heard on and off throughout my life: “life is what you make of it” or “you can create the life you desire” or “you are the master of your destiny/reality”…. But as so many things that I have recently become aware of, I am finding that intellect or concept does not replace actually “getting it” or realizing the true impact of a belief.  My first awareness of this came when I examined the fact that my father left when I was 3 years old and I made an unconscious decision that his leaving meant I was unlovable. Now intellectually I know this is not true, yet this deep held believe kept me from ever getting really close to someone resulting in a lot of failed relationships. It wasn’t until I got the impact of that believe in my life that things shifted. My believing that I was unlovable meant that I couldn’t even allow my mother to love me and anyone that tried to love me was doomed before they stated.

When I got the impact of this belief my life flashed before me and I witnessed all of the lost love that had been available to me that I was not able to accept, all the years of feeling alone and lonely, yearning for the one thing we all need to thrive in life, LOVE.

Once I understood the impact (not just the concept) I was able to shift that belief and open my heart.

The reprograming for new, better habits will come from reading, (as prescribed) Og Mandino’s The Greatest Sales Man in the World. Although it seems tedious I will not treat this exercise lightly for I know that only with repetition are new habits formed.

For the life I desire is filled with abundance, joy, laughter and freedom which will replace scarcity and lack while fear and worry will be replaced with courage and faith. Yes, I can create the life I desire and I begin by designing a new blueprint for my life. The comes from reprogramming my subconscious and I will do this using the teachings in the Master Keys.

Haanel writes in Lesson 1 of the Master Keys:

2.  Mind is creative, and conditions, environment and all experiences in life are the result of our habitual or predominant mental attitude.

 Beliefs are just thought that we keep thinking and thoughts that we keep thinking turn into habits. Like my habit of not being lovable. What other habits are not serving me?  Haanel continues …

 3.  The attitude of mind necessarily depends upon what we think. Therefore, the secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends upon our method of thinking.

 So the key is to break the old habit and replace it with a new one. The secret to change, deep, powerful, everlasting change is to change your world within, to write a new blueprint directing conscience mind to influence subconscious mind, by imprinting habits and beliefs that are in-tune with conscience desires.

As I venture into this journey of reprogramming my subconscious mind with MKMMA it is prudent that I keep reminding myself that knowing is not enough. I pride myself in being well read, open minded and intelligent but concept is not the same as “getting it”. This is a program about “getting it”.

Haanel:

 38.  All growth is from within. This is evident in all nature. Every plant, every animal, every human is a living testimony to this great law, and the error of the ages is in looking for strength or power from without.

So it is not about me making things happen around me, it is about creating new habits within me, Habit that will direct my world within to manifest the world without.
