Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 20 – Welcome to the Comfort Dome

Something that The Fabulous Davene mentioned in this week’s webinar really stuck in my head.  She mentioned that we don’t “step out” of our comfort zone, but we “expand” our comfort zone.

Master Key Master Mind Alliance - ThinkingWhen I heard this, I got an image in my mind.  I imagined a dome surrounding me, where I felt safe.  Inside this dome, nothing could hurt me.  Inside this dome, this comfort zone, is where I felt safest.

Around my dome, I saw fire.  I could not tell where this fire started, or where this fire began.  It was just all around my dome.  I could see it, and I knew that it could hurt me, but I also knew that I was safe inside my comfort zone (dome).  
I then imagined stepping out of my comfort zone.  When I did, I felt searing pain, my flesh was burning, and I was able to look down and see my charred skin, blistering, and turning black.  From normal, to bright red, to blistering, to charred, is how I saw my skin, but I was able to run back into my comfort zone, then I was safe, like nothing ever happened.
I knew that something better waited for me on the other side of that fire, and I found that I had a burning desire to get to what was on the other side of the fire.  The burn, of my desire, was hotter than the fire outside of my comfort zone, and I knew that I had to get there.
MKMMA - Comfort Zone
So instead of stepping out into the fire that was so excruciating, I decided to push on the walls of the dome I was in to try to expand my comfort zone.  I soon found that the boundaries that once restricted my, and kept me within a zone that I couldn’t escape, started to stretch, and expand.
I pushed my boundaries.  I pushed and pushed, and slowly, but surely, expanded my comfort zone, although I felt the heat from the fire outside, I knew what I wanted lay just on the other side of the fire, and I knew that I had to expand my boundaries, to get past it.
Soon, my boundaries became so large, that I broke through that fire.  I saw, as I suspected, just on the other side of the fire, my heart’s desire, my definite major purpose in life.  The person that I intended to become, was waiting there for me, not “outside” of my comfort zone, but it was now within my comfort zone, after pushing hard to expand, and then include the things that were truly important to me.

Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 19 – Connected to God

During each week of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance, there there are a variety of things that we can blog about, and this week is no exception.  This week; however, I would like to discuss something that has happened to me during the MKMMA journey, that I am so elated about.  Something that was totally unexpected, but so very welcomed in my life, and that’s my relationship with God.

MKMMA - The sitOne of the things that we do on a daily basis is sit, and think for at least 15 minutes at a time.  The Master Keys System actually gives us specific things to think about while we have our “15 minute sit”.  For example, one week, we were instructed to think about, imagine if you will, your favorite flower.  We were to sit for 15 minutes and visualize, in our minds, planting the seed, watering it, caring for it, and placing it in where it will get direct sunlight.  We were then to imagine the seed bursting into a living thing.  We saw the roots penetrating the earth, and imagined them shooting out in all directions.  We saw the stem shooting out of the earth, reaching for the sunshine.  You get the idea.  We saw this, one of God’s creations grow, from a seed, to His magnificent creation.

I had never really sat quietly for any length of time, but we have been sitting now, quietly for several months.  I used to struggle with it, but now I enjoy it, and I never thought that I would “enjoy” sitting and thinking.

Thinking has caused me to connect with God in a more powerful way.  In the Master Key System, Haanel writes that thinking is the only way to connect with the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent creator.  To me, that’s God, and I have to say that I have been guilty of just throwing out a prayer, not on a regular basis mind you, that had little substance if any.

Connection to God - MKMMA

Now, when I open my Bible, I have a strong feeling of a connection to God.  I understand now, that in my quiet time with my Lord, is when the magic happens.  When I read the words in my Bible, I know that it is God speaking to me, and what He says in His Word (The Bible), are His promises to His people (me and you), and there’s nothing more powerful than that.

I am grateful, first of all to God for creating us.  I’m grateful for the Bible, and God’s word. I’m grateful for the Master Key System, and I’m grateful for Mark and Davene Januszewski, for putting the Master Key Master Mind Alliance together.  This has strengthened, and created a stronger connection to Christ for me, and there’s nothing more important than that.

Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 18 – THE Ultimate Question

Master Key Master Mind Alliance - QuestionAt some point during this Master Key Master Mind Alliance course, the power of words was discussed, and I thought that I comprehended the magnitude of the case they presented.  This week; however, we were asked to write out a specific phrase on ten of our index cards.  The words of this phrase permeated my mind, as if my brain was a dry sponge, soaking up the power of the sentence.  The phrase is powerful.

What would the person I intend to become do next?”

That single phrase has been driving me this past week, and I don’t think a single waking hour has gone by that I have not brought that phrase to mind.  It has driven me to do things that I may have previously put aside to do later.  It drives me now, not only to do the things that I know I need to do for our MKMMA course, but also to do little things that I know are easy to do, but also easy not to do, and would advance my life’s Definite Major Purpose.

Think about it.  We all have dreams and aspirations.  We all think about what we would like to have more of and less of in our lives, but sometimes we don’t take the steps to get where we intend to be.

Now I have a challenge for you.  I dare you, in fact, I double dog dare you.  Imagine the person, that you intend to be, with all the dreams and aspirations included.  Now ask yourself the question that can change everything for you…

“What would the person that I intend to become do next?”

Then take that action, and really see yourself becoming that person.  After you have done this, if you would be so kind as to please come back and leave a comment as to how it has effected the things you do on a daily basis, I would really appreciate it.
