Comparisons

Its been a whirlwind of a week while I spent time at my national conference in Las Vegas. It was a wonderful few days filled with many accolades to those well deserving of many awards. Not just awards for how much money they made, but also awards of character. Some of these fellow Wine Guides set goals and really rocked them! As I continued with my sits each day, I enjoyed being in the moment. I watched the faces of those whose names were announced and also the faces of those whose names were not. I saw much happiness. I saw some sadness too.

I could sense a difference in my emotions from that of some of my fellow wine sisters and brothers. Their expression of disappointment was obvious. I overheard some say, “I wish I could do that”. Others feeling frustrated that they “can’t do that because (insert some reason).”

I began to feel comfort within myself. I did not feel the same way as them. Why?, I questioned. The answer is clear. Throughout this journey these past few months I have learned not to compare myself to others. I am not them and they, not me. I do not know what their journey has been like and they don’t know mine. I do believe that we are all natures miracle❤️. I am where I am, and I don’t ever want to go back to where I was. Peace with myself has finally arrived and it feels wonderful. I have been able to feel true joy for others by not comparing myself to them.

I ask that you try to stop comparing yourself to others. Let go of judgements. Be free and be joyful❤️

Peace and Joy🍷❤️

FINALE or JUST BEGINNING

The day has come when we, who have completed a promise made 26 weeks ago, have dread. Yes, I said dread. Why? Until these final weeks, many of us did not realize how far we had come. We did not yet understand that the weeks of putting ourselves out there, working on our dreams, feeling and controlling our emotions had already prepared us for this day.

Celebrate! We are now self-directed thinkers thanks to the MKE and we are realizing our ability to put our own thoughts into action to manifest all that we desire. “You had it all along”, Glenda the good witch once said to Dorothy. “All you have to do is close your eyes and think about” where you want to be! Yes it is possible and using the practices we have put into play will always be with us.

MKE was not a course that you simply read or listen to. It is one of action. The harder you work, the more successful you will be. And we worked HARD!

Congrats to all of you and I know that we will cross in this journey again.

Peace and love in your heart ❤️

Accumulation – Week 22&22a

Throughout these weeks we have read and heard over and over again, “what idea you plant is the start of the future you”.  The years of germs entering my thoughts and leading to a less than productive crop ate away so much of my life that now in my later years, I find that time is of the essence….or is it?

Now, living in the present and not being stuck in the past or thinking about the future, I know that I am allowed and able to change my life through my thoughts.  “I live this day as if it is my last.” I write my major purpose in life and revise it over and over with the growth I have experienced through the MKE.  I am aware of those things which make me happy and make me feel that I have purpose.  I can identify my feelings, something I have never done before.  I have direction and am the captain of my own boat.

These 22 weeks of journey to the hero I am, has been a total accumulation of much work.  Work I thought I could not complete, but did.  Ideas that were a bit strange to me, but became sensible.  Those people who frustrated me and who I couldn’t possibly love, were greeted with love in my heart. It has not been an easy road for I had to really dig deep, bring up some uncomfortable feelings, sit silently, and work hard.  My actions became filled with love and with that love I did not feel effort any longer. Life became much easier and more fulfilling.

So what good did this all do?  This accumulation has guided me to finish the next part of my life in love, in helping others, in being happy, in wealth, and in understanding.  This accumulation and journey is only a beginning to the new, future me.  Positive things have already begun to happen.  I make decisions which leads to positivity, and I am happy!  My true self knows what I want.  My deepest desires are coming to be.  I am nature’s greatest miracle!  Join my journey in Life after Life.

Peace and love in your heart,

Denise

I WOKE UP TODAY -Week 21

It’s obvious that I woke up today as I would not be writing this piece. This phrase has much more meaning however.

As we dig deeper into forming our own thoughts and discovering our magnificent self, week 21 has left me with a new look on life. Being in the moment of today allows me to slow down, to look at what is around me, to revel in the awesomeness of creation.

As I walked through the Museum of Science in California, discovery consumed me. It was everywhere. How many times had I read about our visits into space, the discovery of flying, the principles of movement, the living creatures of our planet, and the ability of mankind to create these wonders? Today was different. I was taking my time, reading, feeling, understanding, and thinking about those who had passed and how wonderful they must have felt to leave a legacy behind. Their contributions to humankind made me feel more fulfilled. I woke up.

I believe that we are all here for a reason. That our thoughts are wondrous and our actions lead to the most amazing discoveries. I used to say, I can do that tomorrow. I would let the fear of what others would think stop me. I realize now that today I must do my best in order to leave that which I was intended for behind. Today is all I have. I do not know if I shall awake tomorrow. I have wasted too many days sleeping but I will not think of yesterday for today is all I have.

Imagine if we ALL did our best today. If we awoke with an idea or made a discovery which benefits all of humankind. If we let our worries go…..for our past we can not change and we do not know what our future holds. Be in your moment TODAY and watch what will happen. Wake up and leave a legacy.

Peace and love be in your heart ❤️

Your Legacy – Week 19, 20

I suppose it is not ironic that “It’s a Wonderful Life” is my favorite Christmas movie and that Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  I know how corny that sounds but you can ask any of my family and they will tell you that I own a copy of that movie(even though I do not have a DVD player), and I have to watch it every Christmas as well as throughout the year, and I go crazy decorating for the holiday.  For those of you who don’t know this movie, its about a man who believes that, when his life is turned upside down, no one would have missed him if he had never been born and that the world would be a better place without him. It is a must see movie!

As my years pass me by more quickly now, I ponder on how my life has mattered to others. As Clarence (the angel who got his wings) would tell you, “nothing would be here if it weren’t for your birth”.  You are the miracle that breathes life into so many others lives.  So then, what will be my legacy when I have left this mortal world?

As part of our assignment these past few weeks, I have been reading an obituary daily.  I try to imagine what that person’s life was like for them.  What they would have given for just one more day.  What kind of power did that persSon hold and what thoughts did they have?  What legacy did they leave behind?

Appearances are deceptive and no matter how one’s life appears to others, their true being is only as real as their thoughts that manifested it.  We therefore create what we think about and our definite purpose in life only comes to be through our thoughts and our action upon those thoughts.  The actions you take predetermines the condition, evil or good.  If the thought is manifested for the benefit of humanity, the result is good.  If the thought is manifested in a destructive manner, the result is evil.

Was the person in the obituary a good person or an evil one?  Was he/she able to embrace the differences of mankind, identify his/her virtues and gifts?  Did he/she keep his/her promises, was he/she determined and persistent, did he/she have many friends? Did he/she overcome fear and take initiative, was he/she a considerate man/woman, did he/she always do his/her best, did he/she observe the miracles all around him/her, did he/she work hard and plan for the future, did he/she live his life with a purpose?  What would he/she have done next if he/she had only one more day?

I placed my name into this obituary, not in a morbid sense, but in a way that I could answer my own questions.  How many answers did I have for myself? How many years are left for me to make a difference in another person’s life?   I figure I have about 30 Christmas’ left (I used Christmas because it is my favorite time of the year).  What thoughts and actions must I manifest to leave a legacy of goodness?

Try substituting your name.  How many years of your special time of the year do you have left?  What are you going to do next?

 

May you have Peace and Love in your heart!

Week 18 – Pay Attention

As a young child, our parents often told us to “pay attention”.  After all, we have an entire world to learn about!  How often is it that we had difficulty paying attention?  For me, I was paying attention to many things at the same time.  My curious mind was always active.  Those years leading to adulthood had many thoughts squashed.  The world no longer was my adventure.  I would need to focus more on what was necessary to “grow up”.

Through the insight and teachings of the Master Key, I have learned that thought manifests in abundance that which is brought into operation through the law of attraction.  The power of thought (great attention) brings about the equivalent of that thought.  Thought brings together that which you create.  Thoughts of abundance will respond only to similar thoughts and that thought of affluence within is the secret to attraction for affluence without.  The more you give the more you will receive.

In 18:32, it is explained that the incentive of attention is interest and that the greater the interest, the greater the attention. By paying attention, you arouse interest which attracts more attention, producing more interest and so on.  The law of attraction and the law of attention combine to produce the manifestation of your thoughts.

Find what interests you, be attentive to your world around you and within you.  Pay attention to the sounds of nature, the colors in front of you, the beauty in your partner’s face, the innocence of a toddler. Learn about the world while paying attention.  As you practice attention, you will produce more interest, which will increase attention and so on.  You will then cultivate the power of attention which ignites you within, sows the seeds of your thoughts, and manifests your desires.

May peace and love be in your heart always.

I Need A Hero – Week 17HJ

Who is your favorite hero? Its funny that I have been asked that several times growing up and often had a hard time identifying someone. I was not a big fan of the cartoon Hero. Years later, I would identify my mom, a four time cancer survivor. Then again, my grandmother, who often gave of herself and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. But I never really thought of myself to be a Hero.

In a million years I never thought I could be a transformer, have strength to fight demons, sacrifice myself for the greater good of others, find powers I never knew I had within. I am a Hero and this hero’s journey is leading me down the path of self discovery. By becoming my authentic self, I am now of service to others. I effect the lives of others around me, personally and professionally, and find myself wanting to help others more and more. I have fought my past blueprint and have won leaving it to burn in the flames of Hell. I am no longer disappointed but am grateful for all things in my life, past and present, for I now see that these opportunities are for me to discover my harmony within. They are the realities of which I have the power to choose the course. I am no longer in the wake but sailing for further adventures. I have rescued myself and accept the call for I was conceived in love and I will not stop with mediocracy.

You were conceived in love and brought to this life to live your own purpose, a service driven purpose. You were born a perfect expression of nature’s greatest miracle. Who’s your favorite Hero? Perhaps join in my journey and discover who it is!

Peace and love be in your heart always
