MKMMA Week 14 – Harmony

This week’s lesson was about Harmony.

In order for the Law of Growth to bring you positive results – what you have outlined in your Definite Major Purpose – your thoughts must be positive.  You must constantly use the Law of Substitution to remove any negative thought and replace it with a positive thought.

Haanel makes it clear that if you remove your attention from negative conditions they will eventually (although not immediately!) disappear, but if you continue to focus on the negative (which so many people unfortunately do) then the negative grows.

So we need that clear and precise DMP always in the forefront, and that’s why we read it three times a day!  And even when we are not reading that or another part of our program, our thoughts must be harmonious.

Instead of a personal video, this week I thought I would share some images of things that help me keep harmony in my thoughts!  I hope they bring a smile to your face!

MKMMA Week 13 – Persistence and Action

I ended week 12, before the broadcast Sunday night, by dropping a desk drawer on my foot!  I bruised my big toe and I think I actually might have broken the next one.  Luckily I thought to put arnica ointment on right away and the swelling wasn’t too bad.

The drawer actually came loose because the track came apart.  My husband needed some hardware and time to fix it, so for a few days we left it on the floor.  On Monday night, I did one last email check before bed and was very sleepy.  Not paying close attention, I managed to run my shin (of the same leg) right into the corner of the drawer and put a nasty gash in my leg.

Now, most people would say this all was a very good excuse to not exercise for the rest of


the week.  But…that persistence scroll is stuck in my head! So Tuesday morning, when I had planned to exercise, I decided to try it.  And it was OK!  I love my new DVDs (The Firm Express) so much I just got into it and exercised for 50 minutes, including high-impact moves and even calf raises (up on my toes.)

Knowledge of Power, Courage to Dare, Faith to Do

The week 13 lesson talks of giving before we get (Emerson’s Law) and uses as an example that a person wishing to gain strength must first give that strength (in exercise) for the muscles to gain strength.  My body won’t change if I uses excuses!  And neither will my mind.

I’ve been stretching outside my comfort zone, reconnecting with people I haven’t seen in up to 20 years, calling people, sharing the business with friends.  Another thing week 13 makes clear again, which was mentioned in a previous week, is that it’s not up to me how the Universe will manifest my desires.  I am shown the path and then I must take it, comfortable or not, if I want my Definite Major Purpose to unfold!

The sitting exercises of weeks 12 and 13 bring us deeper into the realization of our power to create limitless possibilities.

I feel my courage and faith growing; do you?

By the way, the drawer is fixed 🙂

MKMMA Week 12 – Love Makes the Law of Attraction Work!

7 Laws are at work in the mind

One of our assignments for week 12 is to study the 7 Laws of the Mind.

Two in particular struck me as things I need to work on more.

The Law of Relaxation is challenging for me! I have improved at relaxing my mind during the morning meditation, but once my day gets going it seems like my mind never relaxes!  So I’m working on that, taking a few moments here and there to reflect quietly on my direction.

The Law of Dual Thought is the other one that struck home.  There is a feeling attached to every idea, and we are free to choose that feeling! Week 12 of the Master Keys says “Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.”  So if we attach love to our thoughts, we put the Law of Growth into overdrive!

So when you greet each day with love in your heart, remember to add that love to your thoughts, visions, intentions – whatever you “put out there”, do it with Love!

MKMMA Week 11 – Believe Before You Receive

“Whatsoever things ye desire..believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.”

Week 11 of the Master Keys teaches us that we must first believe our desires have already been fulfilled – the accomplishment follows the belief.

I have always struggled with this concept – until I got immersed in the MKMMA class!  When I got over the odd feeling of reading my Definite Major Purpose stated in the present tense and just read it, 3 times a day, the belief began to come.  And then the actions needed to bring my DMP into manifestation began to become clear.  Not comfortable, mind you!  But clear all the same.

The other absolutely awesome point made in the week 11 assignment is this: “notice that there is no limitation, ‘Whatsoever things’ is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us is our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is not a shadow, but a substance, ‘the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.'”

The only limits to what we can achieve are the limits we make up in our own mind.  So let’s NOT limit ourselves! Let’s stop listening to the limiting beliefs of other people and boldly state our wildest dreams and desires in our DMP as if they already exist in our lives.  Do it with feeling, with GUSTO.  Speak it into reality.  GO FOR IT!

Just like Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz” your heart’s desire is no further away than your own

There are no limits to where you can go!

back yard.  In fact it’s way closer than that – in your own mind.  From week 7: “construct it in your imagination; it will have to be there before it will ever appear anywhere else.


If you’ve been resisting, and listening to negative people (you know, those people who claim they are “being realistic”) then I have three words for you, a favorite line from a song by The Eagles:

MKMMA Week 10 – Persistently Holding the Vision

We were asked to post the four shape/color combinations all over to keep our Definite Major Purpose in mind, and were also encouraged to notice these colors and shapes all around us.  Persistently holding our visions in mind will eventually bring them into reality.

My favorite is the green triangle, but I had noticed it difficult to find outside of the shapes papers and my index cards.  I see pine trees, and can imagine “cutting out” a triangle from the corner of green rectangular signs.  I kept looking for more green triangles because it represents liberty to me and is linked to our dream house in the country.  We actually bought the plans several years ago, just never built the house.  Knowing what the plans are makes the dream house very real in my visions.  There is a drawing of the finished house on my dream board!

Anyway something funny happened this week.  I just found out that Weight Watchers came out with a new plan.  I am a lifetime member, having lost 40 pounds about 10 years ago.  I found a few of those pounds again and I want to remove them, plus my curiosity over what was changed nagged at me.  So I stopped in and got the new material.

Guess what is ALL OVER the new program books?  LIME GREEN TRIANGLES! All of the other color/shape combinations are there too, but just incidentally.  The green triangles represent the new category called “power foods” which are foods that are both filling and healthy.  So throughout the food lists and recipes for the new program you see green triangles everywhere!

I love it!  Maintaining a healthy weight has always improved my feeling of liberty.  It makes me confident in any clothing style and in any situation.  It makes me happy to run into people who haven’t seen me in a while.  It makes me feel free.  So green triangles are all over my life right now and I love it!

I need this kick-start for my weight just as I need the MKMMA to kick-start my network marketing efforts.  I’m getting back in gear!

My favorite line from Week 10: “when the law becomes fully operative, you will find that the things you seek are seeking you.”

MKMMA Week 9 – Who Am “I”?

One With The Universe

We’ve been learning for several weeks from the Master Keys that “I” is spiritual, and connected to the Universal “wholeness.”

The Universal power is Omniscient (all-knowing), Omnipresent (all around us and within us), and Omnipotent (all-powerful.)

So the new affirmation, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy” is a statement of FACT when you consider who “I” really am!  And YOU as well!

We also learned in this week’s lesson that we must know the truth and base our actions on truth to get the results we want.  How do we know the truth:  “…truth is the vital principle of the Universal Mind and is Omnipresent.”  The above affirmation “is in strict accordance with the Truth, and when truth appears every form of error or discord must necessarily disappear.”

So why do I feel so powerless and disharmonious at times?

Operator Error!! (lol – old computer term.)

In order to manifest the life and circumstances we desire, we need to first create it in our imagination as a visualization.  Next, we must concentrate on the visualization consistently for a period of time.  The bad news is, while this mechanism works perfectly, sometimes the operator doesn’t!  “Sometimes the operator is inexperieced or inefficient…”  The good news is, we can fix this with practice.  “…but practice and determination will overcome this defect.”

This is why we added the promise this week to our card, that visualizing our new reality is a daily habit.  This is also why we continue working with the law of substitution to replace any negative thought immediately with a positive thought and vision.  This is the “mental diet” and we have our “diet pill” index card, the “I can be what I will to be” affirmation, and now this newest affirmation.  We have an awesome bag of “tools” to help us accept the truth and reject the old blueprints which are NOT true!

With diligent effort and practice we can create the results we desire.  And all of the exercises in the Master Keys as well as the other exercises Mark and Davene have created work together to help us learn.  What a rush!

Remember the Law of Growth: Whatever we think about grows!  So keep building the positive visualizations and keep rejecting the old negative thoughts and feelings.
