Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 23 – Don’t Be Chicken

Slap in the faceIn this week’s Master Key Master Mind Alliance conference call, Davene Januszewski recalled a conversation that she had with Mark Januszewski in a coffee shop.  She said that Mark made the following statement to her, “You’ve been infected by the subcultures you run in, and they’ve been effected by society.”  This was like the truth slapped me in the face to me when I heard it.

Most of us do become infected by the groups that we run with.  Our parent’s, our friend’s, teacher’s, the media, and so on, give us their opinions, or rules, that we must follow in order to be normal, and most people seem to conform easily – infected.  Only then are we considered a member of our society.

But what happens if we don’t conform.  If we don’t believe, what they believe. People get weird right?  Davene also said, “They need you to conform to validate their choices.”  Another slap in the face!

When we live our lives, dictated by social norms, we become copies, of copies, of copies, which is something else that Davene stated.  Man!  So many slaps in the face, I think my head is going to fall off.

The rare people that decide to think for themselves are usually though of as weird, or freaks, or idiots, you name it.  People look at them and think that they have some kind of mental illness because they are not like everyone else, like the rest of society; however, those “freaks”, tend to be the true thinkers that can cause positive change in our society, in our world.  Walt Disney, Bill Gates, Roger Bannister, Nicola Tesla, were all thought to be a little crazy, or eccentric, with their “radical thoughts”, and ideas, but what did they accomplish by not conforming?  Well, you know.

This reminds me of a story that goes hand in hand with this.  It goes something like this.

At the edge of a forest, by a small farm, an newly hatched eagle had fallen out of a nest, but it safely landed in the grass.  The farmer happened to walk by and he saw it.  Thinking that it was one of his chicks, he took it and put it in the chicken coop (subcultures/society).

MKMMAThis little eagle grew up doing what the chickens did, and believing that he was a chicken.  He clucked like a chicken, he scratched at the ground like a chicken, and he even tried his hand at crowing like a rooster.  

In addition, the eagle, who had the ability to fly, in fact he had the ability to soar very high in the sky, never got more than a couple of feet off the ground his entire life.  The eagle lived an OK life, but he never realized, his true potential.

Are you an eagle living as a chicken, among chickens?

I know this, because of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance, my eyes have been opened.  I know I have unlimited potential, and I am no longer willing to live the life of a chicken.  I will think for myself, and really truly think because, thinking and prayer is the doorway to God, our omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent creator.

I will also be weary about who I listen to, and not come to conclusions so quickly based on what other people say.  I’ll think, and act, like an eagle, and soar high in the sky.

Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 22a – I Have to Wear Shades

Changes - MKMMAThinking back over the past several months, I can see huge changes in my life thanks to the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.  These changes are due to the fact that Mark and Davene Januszewski, and Trish, have taught us how to properly use our minds to create a better outcome for ourselves.

Not only have we learned how to be happier people, but we have also learned to love others, unconditionally.  We have learned also, that we can manifest anything in our lives, and that we do this with laser focused concentration on the thing that we want.  This laser focus, in our quiet time (15 minutes or more), allows us to connect with the omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent creator, and for me, that’s my God of the Bible.

Connect with God - Master Key System

This, in fact, is what I’ve gotten most of from the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.  I have learned how to truly connect with God.  Just this one aspect of the MKMMA, to me, is the most important thing, because of my Christian faith.  A direct connection with God; Awesome!

I know that there are many other lessons within the Master Key Master Mind Alliance course that I don’t have the time to recap here; otherwise, you’d be reading a small book, and not a blog post.  Many people have had breakthroughs different from mine.  I have read some of them, and I am so happy for their successes.

MKMMA - Leaving the NestI am sad that the Master Key Master Mind Alliance is winding down, in fact, there are only a couple of weeks left in the course.  I am kind of emotional person as it is, so when it ends, I will feel some sorrow, and I will miss the conference calls, and the lessons taught by Mark, Davene, and Trish.  I look at it this way though, a parent raises a child up until it’s time for them to leave the nest (home), and then they are on their way to fail or succeed.

It will soon be time to leave the nest, but what we have been given is a strong, solid foundation, that most people walking this earth have never even been offered, so if we continue in the ways that we’ve been taught in the MKMMA, we will be creating remarkable lives for ourselves.  Although the MKMMA is almost over, I look forward to reviewing everything starting from week one of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.  I’m excited to see the things that I may have missed along the way, and for the additional growth I will have.

Shades - Master Key SystemIt’s almost over, yes, but that’s just the MKMMA course.  Our lives will continue, and now we know how to create a secure, bright future.  In fact, for the first time in a long time I feel like my future is so bright, I have to wear shades.

Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 22 – I’m a Live Wire

This week, in Charles Haanel’s, Master Key System, I read the following:

3. This is because the Infinite Mind, which is the source from which all things proceed, is one and indivisible, and each individual is a channel whereby this Eternal Energy is being manifested. Our ability to think is our ability to act upon this Universal Substance, and what we think is what is created or produced in the objective world.

4. The result of this discovery is nothing less than marvelous, and means that mind is extraordinary in quality, limitless in quantity, and contains possibilities without number. To become conscious of this power is to become a ”live wire”; it has the same effect as placing an ordinary wire in contact with a wire that is charged. The Universal is the live wire. It carries power sufficient to meet every situation which may arise in the life of every individual. When the individual mind touches the Universal Mind it receives all the power it requires. This is the world within. All science recognizes the reality of this world, and all power is contingent upon our recognition of this world.

I believe that the Universal Mind is God.  So, God “…is the source from which all things proceed…”, and, “Our ability to think is our ability to act upon this Universal Substance…” (our 15 plus minutes sitting quietly, and connecting with God).  In case you didn’t get it, in our quiet time, is when we connect with God, and tap into His power.

In addition, Haanel says, “To become conscious of this power is to become a ‘live wire’, it has the same effect as placing an ordinary wire in contact with a wire that is charged.” This brought an image to my mind.

Imagine if you would, all the devices in your home that run on electricity.  Like people, they all have a purpose, they were created for something specific.  A can opener cannot play music.  An electric shaver can’t illuminate a room.  They all have something that they are specifically made to do, and the thing that powers them is electricity.

We, as human beings, work the same way.  We are all different, and made for very specific things. Consider Mother Theresa, Michael Jordan, Abraham Lincoln, and Bill Gates.  They all have specific talents; they were each created for a specific purpose.

Once the devices in your home are plugged in to the power source, BAM, they carry out what they were created to do.  The can opener opens cans.  The electric shaver shaves a face.  The light illuminates the room, and so on.

We, in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance, have our purpose, and we now know how to connect to our source of power (in our quiet time).  Now that we can connect directly to Universal Mind (God), we are prepared to serve our purpose whether it’s rescuing dogs, working with the elderly, being the greatest mom, or what have you.  We are directly connected to our power source, and that’s when the magic happens.  Miraculous, and astounding things now happen in our lives.  Things that we never thought possible, nor that we could foresee.

I thank God for his Divinity, and for allowing us, His creations access to His unlimited power.  Also, I’m thankful that in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance, we are learning to plug in to Him.

Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 21 – There’s Power in Prayer

(First off, I’d like to apologize to those of you who frequent my blog, as I was late getting this posted.  I was actually on a cruise with the boss… Uh, I mean my wife, so I got to it as soon as I could.  Thanks for stopping by, and here you go.)  :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MKMMA memeSometimes, and I’m assuming that it’s the same for most people, I don’t completely grasp a concept like I thought I did, but then I hear an analogy, example, or story that puts it all into perspective. This happened to me while studying the Master Key System this week. In the introduction to chapter 21, Haanel writes the following:

 

In paragraph 8 you will find that everything which we hold in our consciousness for any length of time becomes impressed upon our subconsciousness and so becomes a pattern which the creative energy will wave into our life and environment. This is the secret of the wonderful power of prayer.

And in paragraph 8, Haanel wrote:

8. When we realize these facts concerning mind we understand how we may bring ourselves any condition by creating the corresponding conditions in our consciousness, because everything which is held for any length of time in the consciousness, eventually becomes impressed upon the subconscious and thus becomes a pattern which the creative energy will wave into the life and environment of the individual.

Master Key System - Power of PrayerThis helped me to realize that my prayers have not been laser focused, like the rays of the sun shining through a magnifying glass and creating heat, hot enough to start a fire (energy).  Yes, I pray to God (Our omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent creator), in Jesus’ name; however, something in those sentences made me come to the realization that just “praying” a few words, which usually takes me about 3 – 5 minutes is not how to pray.  The key is focus, and concentration.

In the Bible, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, it says, “Pray without ceasing.”

I thus realized that I prayed briefly, and not commonly with fervor, as I should.  This is where God’s power lies.

In addition, in Philippians 4:6, it states, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

That means that you need to ask, and pray, with focus and concentration, on the things you desire.  Which leads me to another thought if I may.  The Bible is filled with thought about love, and kindness, and the Master Key Master Mind Alliance is in agreement with His (God’s) teaching.  In fact, my favorite affirmation that we say on a daily basis goes like this:

I promise to keep these four promises.

I promise that wherever I go I bring a gift.  I may bring a compliment, trinket, prayer, flower, but I promise I will give something to every person I encounter.

I promise to be a grateful receiver of the gifts that surround me, noticing nature, kindness, smiles and compliments, which I gladly receive with at “thank you”.

I promise to give the hope for joy, affluence, kindness and love, consciously with every encounter, regardless of brevity.

I promise to give without expectation of reciprocity from the channels I enrich, because I know I am in the dynamic flow of giving and receiving.

I always keep my promises,

Edward Rubi

kindnessThis affirmation speaks of love, kindness, and giving.  It’s exercises like this, that Mark Januszewski has us do in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance that shows me how different this is than any other “self development” course I’ve taken.  Mark and Davene have created something special, that is making me a better Christian, and improving other people lives in different ways.  I thank God that He led me to this course, because it has made our relationship stronger.

Lastly, and this is like icing on the cake in this post.  Here is a video of Mark J, showing people in Kauai, Hawaii some love, on behalf of the 200 + members of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.  Thank you Mark, Davene, and Trish the Dish too, for all you do. This is a life changer for those that have remained devout.
