The truth will set us free. Ain’t it cool to know that being pegged as left-brain or right-brain learner was all a load of crap?
All those CD peddling guru’s trying to make us feel inferior…telling us we could learn to liberate our ‘submissive right side’ if we’d buy their bullshit?
The $2000 to $10,000 weekends, the books, the lectures…..the webcasts……all designed to make us feel ….less than…..stunted…..like we’d never reach our potential……unless we get ‘in touch’ with the right side……and to do that we’d have to ante up.
And the little tests and optical illusions they show us …..to help us ‘confirm’ we were sterile on the right side….”helping us” prove to ourselves there really is something wrong with us……and ‘for the low-low price of $XX I can help you become complete, put you in touch with your feelings and higher self’
Ain’t it cool to know you are NOT incomplete? Phew, what I relief…..I was soooooooooooooo worried that I was incomplete 🙂
Like God didn’t quite finish me?
That the creator, somehow, forgot to put something in there?
As Haanel points out….and common sense endorses…..the ‘mechanism’ is perfect…..the operator may need to sharpen his/her skills to leverage this flawless mechanism, our ability to think, create and manifest what we want…..but the mechanism works perfectly. I am the one, as The Fabulous Davene pointed out last week……I….we…..have proved this over and over…..I am the one who created the roadblocks ….I am the one who created the conditions…..and I am the one who is responsible for everything in my life.
The 7 Laws of the mind coupled with the exercises do not change the mechanism they just teach us how to use it better….to be a better operator.
My mechanism works perfectly……so does everyone elses.
THE SWEET SPOT
Fink’s research on left brain – right brain proves both sides are needed. The ‘sweet spot’ is hit when a brain takes a thought or data and via the corpus callosum [the thick bundle of nerve fibres that forms the main connection between the cerebral hemispheres] the two sides combine and complement one another.
Do people have a ‘preferred style’ …..left, data based…..or right, concept based…they are more receptive to gathering? Yes.
Are we exclusively one way or the other? No.
The ‘sweet spot’ is hit when the transferring of information, from one hemisphere to the other, is fluid and fast…..letting us leverage the incredible potential and power…..of a Master Mind…..creating a Master Mind Alliance between the 2 hemispheres if you will…..
We can facilitate this with exercise, the Law of Growth and truth.
Letting go of the myth that we are exclusively one side [L-R], or the other….because we took the time to discover the truth that both sides are needed to unerstand and apply life’s lessons…..is step one.
It’s easy to ‘let go’ when you know the truth.
What do we do with this truth to manifest our desires?
EXERCISE & LAW OF GROWTH
9 weeks to get to 1 simple, irrefutable law…..the Law of Growth.
What we think about grows.
With all the distractions of life……old blue-prints and our celluar addiction to peptides that reinforce the old blueprint….we gotta exercise…..and in a way so different that our subconscious does not recognize….so it is easy to establish a new habit.
And it would sure help if these exercises were designed in such a manner that it they would facilitate rapid interaction between the left and right side….in other words….they were designed to hit the sweet spot…….
And it sure would help if they also ‘pinged’ the 7 ways people learn.
And it sure would be fantastic if the exercises worked equally well for both ‘preferred [L-R] processing styles.
Well, together we have.
WANT TO GO FASTER WITH LESS EFFORT?
Easy to do…..work the exercises in ‘combinations.’
What does that mean?
I’ll show you a few…..
We’d love to hear in the members area combinations you’ve discovered
OK,OK….. I get that you may think my idea about using the River of Dreams and some of the verses symbolically is a little much…..or overused ……or that I have an obsession with Billy Joel’s tune……but, I don’t.
As I started working the Master Key System……by myself…..and getting my mind bent, or bent back……I got a little freaked out and The River of Dreams was, a particular line, the tipping point.
BEGINNING AT THE BEGINNING
The best way to tell the story is to turn the clock back. Failing in networking for the 6th time, [I’d failed 5 times in the 80’s and it was 1993 before I took another shot], when, at 3:00 AM I reached for “Think and Grow Rich.” Eventually, learning this is a skill based business and applying the principles to my networking business under the “Think and Grow Rich” umbrella…..led to some successes and I got the idea to learn more about Hill, its author. That research about Hill led me to Haanel’s Master Key System. That was in 1993, early 1994…….
Billy Joel’s Grammy Award winning River of Dreams broke in 1993.
BILLY AND THE BREAKTHROUGH
So, like a lot of folks, I feel like I am having a breakdown. It was not until years later that “What the Bleep Do We Know?” was released and Haanel’s ideas became scientifically documented…..I future students could be informed that they were not going through a ‘breakdown’ but rather a breakthrough…..that is breaking their cells addiction, a chemical addiction to peptides.
So I am reading the Master Key and doing my 15-30 minutes of sitting still and unknowingly breaking a chemical addiction …..and knowing in my heart, really knowing, this the material was dead-center prefect…..but it was not working for me. Maybe it was, which is why Master-minding is so crucial…..but I knew something was amiss.
I remember this so vividly. I am driving down Route 1 to Boston and thinking about what I am hanging on to so tightly that I cannot create the changes needed to manifest the life I wanted.
BANG…..Billy’s singing River of Dreams and I hear it.
“I must be lookin’ for somthin’
taken out of my soul
somthin’ I’d never lose
somethin’ somebody stole’
Tears running down my face…..the socio-educational-govermental-parental influences had not only set absurd standards, made me self conscious…..and influenced me so much without my knowledge that I realized the truth of my being had been stolen.
The insane standards that advertisers, entertainment and the other previously mentioned influences had created impossible standards for things like beauty, normal, lifestyle etc……and my reality was drawn from that …and worse…..’how to act’…….geez…..
I pulled out my DMP and read it with all my heart…..at the top of my lungs. I was no longer doing ‘exercises’ I creating a new life. Now.
I was elated all day…..a feeling I have never had before and one that has never, 16+ years later diminished.
I realized I had been keeping a lot of what I was doing cloaked.
I LET IT ALL HANG OUT
I moved the dreamboard into the living room and made another one for my makeshift office. A few days later I made a third one….to replace the one I had taken out of the office.
I really did not care what other’s feelings were about stuff I had around my house. I began reading my short version of my DMP while standing in line for coffee or checking out at the grocery store.
I was not acting, being brave or behaving in a ‘fake-it-till-you-make-it’ manner.
Excited about what I knew was going to happen with my mind and my outer world…..I let it all hang out.
What did I ‘let all hang out?’
The joyful spirit I came to this world with……childlike enthusiasim……and I totally abandon the insipid idea that maturity meant, in essence, giving up that glorious spirit….to ‘fit in.’
We are taught to ‘conform’ ……to ‘grow up’…..to ‘get realistic’……..what a crock of bullshit.
Shortly after this breakthrough……I came across this little ditty…
“Sing like no one is listening…….dance like no one is watching…..and love like you’ve never been hurt”
This amazing optimist, excited optimist, lives within all of us…….and deals with adversity knowing that the seed for equal or greater value lies within the adversity…..
So…..let it out baby, let it out……we don’t have to go get it, we can’t buy it and even though it was stolen, anyone of us can reclaim it instantly…….
Throw your heart into it baby……as Jimminy Cricket sang…..”if your heart is in your dream……no request is too extreme”
And when you go to the guy or the gal in the glass…..do what this kid does……You should be excited to see yourself !
As soon as you have a negative thought, held for more than 7 seconds…..we gotta start over…..and keep starting over until we get 7 days put together, back-to-back, with a single negative thought.
A tall order? No……just kidding…..Yes.
Massive payoff? Yes…yes..YES
Abandoning negative thoughts for 7 days, all negative thought seems easy when we first hear it. We really believe ourselves to be positive people. After all, we’re sure we picked the correct company to work with…..we have a dream…..and all we want to do is help other people dream and teach them what to do so they can have their dream.
We get that by helping others get what they want and need…..we’ll get a lot more than what we want and need.
We are so damn nice 🙂
Negative thoughts…….naw, not us.
Yeah, I know….we think…..I may have a negative thought here or there…..but this is going to be a piece of cake.
So we all woke up Monday morning thinking this was going to be easy….after all…..we are in the dream-selling, helping others business…..we’re postive. Most of us forgot we were even supposed to do it….it’s so easy….and it’s easy to forget easy things….
That was about, say, 7:00 AM. By 9:00, those who are ‘observers’ of our own behavior had restarted the mental diet 10 – 20 times.
Is this really me? Am I negative? I’m not negative….OK, I had a negative thought in the coffee shop…..and 5 or 6 in the car….then I got a call from my spouse and stuff went wrong with the washer & dryer ….but I am not being negative….I am not negative…..these are just ‘normal’ reactions to life.
The facts are….they are negative thoughts…..all of them. So, because we know the only way to change the blue-print, create a new reality …..is honest observation and modification.
Does this make me negative? As a person?
See, that is a negative thought….the trick is to be a non-judgemental observer and modify our thought through practice.
Stimulus-Response is how most people look at life…..coming off Newton’s Law that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
While it is true in physics…..it is not true in the mind…….the world of matter and the world of mind….that is the laws that govern them….are opposite.
Master Key students who are emerging as Master….know that in the mind …..it is …..
CHOICE or NO CHOICE
The videos introducing the class and the material in the class make it clear that the subconscious makes the decisions…..unless we create a new reality, we default to the old, ingrained response.
Those who Master themselves with the Master Keys and the exercises…..create a different vision. By holding the vision, peppering the subconscious with it through our childlike [not childish] exercise….we create a demand….which in turn finds the supply.
Stone & Hill’s formula require a Definite of Purpose & Positive Mental Attitude……so as bury this new reality into the frontal lobe….one of the demands becomes a PMA…..and the supply of a PMA is available if we access. We cannot ……decide to not be negative…..we need to ‘fast’…..and since the Laws of the mind prohibit dismissing a thought…..we must not think about ‘not being negative’ but instead being positive.
By using the Law of Substitution …..thinking of something else……when a negative thought comes into your mind. Think about God….think about your dreams…..think about a pleasant moment with your kids, your husband…….your wife….
WHY THIS WORKS
It is not possible to hold 2 thoughts at the same time….while thoughts move at a blinding speed the truth is we cannot hold 2 thoughts at the same moment.
So if we substitute a good thought ….mind control…..the negative thought atrohies……..Don’t try to dismiss the negative thought or feel negative about having a negative thought…..Substitute a great thought instead….
Mental effort defeats itself…..so don’t press…but use the Law of Relaxation, which we learned in chapters 3 & 4…..negative impluse shows up, Relax the mind, like you do every time you sit….Law of Relaxation and move to a pleasant thought…..Law of Substitution.
BE THE OBSERVER
It is not Stimulus-Response for Master Key Masters like us…..it is Stimulus-CHOICE-Rresponse
If we are observer’s of our behavior, we can ‘see it coming’, a negative thought…..and CHOOSE to Relax and Substitute.
I couldn’t think about other things…..like the ones I suggested, God, memory with kids…..but what I could think of was Davene laughing after getting spun around and somersaulted by a wave at Polihale ….and feel the joy of it all……everytime a negative thought tried to enter, I would go to the beach and in my mind re-experience that elegant moment…..and it became a habit and the diet went better everyday.
MY MENTAL DIET PILL What I did make a small picture of this day…..put it on an index card [think about all the good stuff going on mentally with index cards…good feeling #1…..] put a shape and goal on it and everytime I sensed a negative may be coming I pulled it out of my shirt pocket and used the law of substitution ……..and thought about that day so often that I could get my mind there in a nano-second……effortlessly
There is an old saying……’He can’t see the forest through the trees’ …….and this week I want to make sure that is not happening for any of us.
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again……the Key to the Vault that your dreams are stored in……..is this:::::> The Whole is Greater than the Sum of the Parts.
What does that mean, really?
While we’re busy putting the parts together let’s remember that those parts working together ……on your subconscious to construct a new reality……are greater in the total effect than the parts are.
While the parts make up the whole and each and every one is important to create the whole…..it is the whole experience, not the parts, where the treasure actually exists.
So what the hell does this have to do with forests and trees?
While we systematically put the parts in place, [index cards, color coding, shapes, etc.]…..call them the ‘trees’……don’t lose sight of the forest itself and, more importantly, the splendor that is taking place.
The distance we’ve each traveled from whence we began is astounding for each individual and incomprehensible collectively.
I see the courage, change and the effort in the Press Releases when I compare them to the first Definite of Purpose you sent over.
The distance you’ve each come times the courage you each keep displaying is more than inspiring……it is humbling.
The Fabulous Davene and myself are both in awe and often moved to tears.
Don’t get so hung up on what to do with the shapes, color coding etc., that you miss the forest focusing on the trees [the parts].
UNRAVELING::::>I JUST GO TOO FAST SOMETIMES
Conversations with many of you this week and lots of emails as let us know that on the Week 5 call some folks were a little uncertain about what to do with the shapes we’ve asked you to print out and display in various places……..and …….how all that links in the colors, PPNs, DMPs and Press Release…..and some folks are so worried about ‘getting it right’ that they are a little stuck.
I think, if you feel a little tangled up…..I can quickly unravel it with this video……I promise to get slow.
This video below……will unravel any entanglements of thoughts you may have….
Please take this suggestion …… go back over your first DMPs….and enjoy how far you have come…..read 5 weeks of progress on a few blogs…….and you’ll find change, guts, courage and desire…..in essence you’ll see greatness…….and……..this is really important……you cannot see ANYTHING in others that does not already exist within you.
So the splendor I was referring to was of course the action. Each and every one of you has taken action…..you’re not on the sidelines…..you are creating a new reality [the forest] but the real beauty is found within the fact you are moving and improving a greater distance and amount everyday towards the person you want to become……just like is says in your blueprint builder.
This is tough stuff, looking within and we’re all underfire……and the grace and calm you each display daily leave The Fabulous Davene stunned and me bewildered.
