Week 13 – A quote of Haanel

spiritual practice

 

For this week I like to share with you a quote of Haanel from chapter 13 of the Master Key System.

 

“23. Thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore creative, but make no mistake, thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed; and herein is the difference between idle thinking, which is simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically unlimited achievement.” Continue reading

Week 12 – Having fun

having-fun1

 

I was so looking forward to this week’s webinar. As following the MKMMA the second time I was waiting for this webinar to come, because I really really enjoyed a certain exercise last year. For me this exercise was very inspirational last year. This exercise is as following: speak out loud your one sentence DMP (definite major purpose) to yourself during 50 minutes, while looking in a mirrow. Last year I even did this exercise a second time, but then with an affirmation instead of the one sentence DMP.  Continue reading

Week 11 – Unexpected help

This week I recieved unexpected help to keep up with some parts of the MKMMA from people who don’t know what the MKMMA is about. How cool is that? I liked it very much.

The part I want to share with you is the following. I got some help to be more attentive about the Law of Giving and Recieving. What happened? One person heared me talking to another person saying “I want to wish you a nice day”. In Dutch it’s a very common way to say something like that. But when saying that I want to wish someone a nice day but I don’t actually wish the other person a nice day. I want to, but I don’t wish it to him/her. Is that a way to give the hope for joy, affluence, kindness and love, aka one of the Laws of Giving and Recieving? Nooo, it isn’t. By simply adjusting, or better said, leaving out some words my intention becomes a real wish. It made me realize (again) several things. 

1) It just simply takes a small change to have a big impact.

2) Some habits are so common, so it’s good to stay open and attentive to how you express something. 

3) In a broader perspective: I thought about saying “I want to” a bit and came to the conclusion that when you say “I want to”, but not doing it, is like saying something with a hidden “but”. Because “do you want to do it” or “are you doing it”? In my personal example I mentioned above there’s no “hidden” but; it was a habit I wasn’t aware of. But with new year just around the corner – when you look at resolutions people make a lot of them start with “I want to…..”. With saying this and not doing it, they kinda express a hidden “but”. F.e. I want to quit smoking, eat healthier, lose weight etc. Do you hear the “but”? “But” I don’t have the discipline, time, money, etc. You don’t have to say the but, but it’s still there. And do you also see that by doing so you’re telling your subconscious that this “want to” is something you want to achieve in the future and because of that postponing the need to do something about it right now? Your subby sees your future self as a complete stranger. So no need for your subby to help you to realize the targets you’ve set. Not something you want either.

So my lesson of today is don’t use this  “want to” anymore and you help yourself and people around you in many positive ways.

Have a great day!
With love,

Week 10 – Focus on the now

butterfly

 

“Constructive thought must necessarily be creative, but creative thoughts must be harmonious, and this eliminates all destructive or competitive thoughts” (Lesson 10 /sentence 21  – from the Masterkey System by Haanel)

 

Last week, week 10, it was a though week so to say. It was a bumpy ride. But hey, I am back and I want to focus on the good in my life. For me it helps to sit still, feel my body and notice all is okay. In the now I feel the connection with my heart, with a higher sence. In the now everything is okay.

 

So let’s concentrate on the good, on the now and on constructive thoughts…

 

Have a great day!

 

With love,

Week 9 – Step by step

Oprah-Winfrey-Running-Quotes

 

Although this post is a belated one, week 9 was a week of taking steps. In my DMP of last year I wrote a goal concerning running, running 5 kilometers in 30 minutes before a certain date. I wasn’t a runner at all, but I wanted to do something more physical concerning my health. So I thought it was a good idea to start running. For some reason I didn’t start with running at all during last years course. It wasn’t a coincidence that during this past summer I came across a certain running program which sounded very well and they started in September, almost at the same time of this years MKMMA program. This running program was a program for absolute beginners, building up from 20 minutes walking to 30 minutes running in 12 weeks. As being an absolute beginner, this was a “fit”, so I decided to join this program. And off I went with this running program. During those weeks I noticed that I shouldn’t look ahead to the weeks to come too much, but literally just start one training, and when completed take the next one, etc. And I have to say, I have been very loyal to the program, never skipped a training, also when the weather wasn’t that good, and even rescheduled my work schedule, so that I was able to do all the 3 trainings in the week. Last week on the second training in the week we have completed the 30 minutes run. It was great fun to do and for me a great accomplishment. I am very proud of myself I completed it. The next goal running 5 kilometers within 30 minutes is very nearby now. All it takes is taking step by step and follow through. With this in mind I continue this course…

 

Have a great day,

Chantal

Week 8 – Changing stimulus….

positive thoughts

 

The past week I wasn’t as faithful to all the exercises as I should be. I didn’t do all the readings and most of all I missed the sits. Some other assignments for the MKMMA and actions to fulfill my DMP are going very well and when I say very well, I definitely mean very well, but some other stuff, hmm not that good. Also on Wednesday I slipped with how I reacted towards another person in a conversation. In short I didn’t react with love towards the other person. Not that I became angry or upset, that wasn’t the case, but it was a different kind of not acting with love. Afterwards I regretted it deeply, and I was surprised by myself I had done it, but the ego part showed up faster than I thought. So I thought about it what went wrong and I noticed that my shield of love wasn’t that strong that day. I have noticed on other days that when I truly send love towards every person I encounter (with perhaps a slip here and there) the ego isn’t talking that much. She keeps quit much more, not needing to give an opinion and sending love. So a beautiful lesson for me here what to do on a day to day basis.

 

I also thought about how I could stay positive in all situations. In general I call myself a positive person, I tend to look for possibilities and solutions, understanding that each person has his/her own perspective on things instead of looking at problems. But hey, as being a human 😉 I have my “bloopers” on not being positive….. So I went to our backoffice, which has lot’s of information and where we can mastermind with other participants, the staff and guides, to post how I did on being positive. Was it coincidence or was it the universe showing me what to do? I think the latter. I saw a beautiful tip from a guide reacting to another persons post. She said to celebrate for staying positive several times a day. Huray! Yes, of course. Let’s celebrate every hour when I stay positive!! So far so good. I can do that. That rang a bell, because of something I spoke about with my own guide, Claes, some weeks ago. Celebrating, this is a great plan…………….. I thought……. Yep, I thought….

The next day I noticed that I didn’t have an awareness on celebrating my achievement for staying positive. Hmm, this asks for another solution….. Mark told us in the webinar of week 8 how we can change the input to get a different reaction. Instead of having a non-supportive input and changing how you react on it, you arrange your outer world in a way that you get supportive input, so that you get a positive response, so absolutely no need to change your response. It’s a beautiful shortcut to changing habits. In short it’s called “changing the stimulus to get a different response”. So here is what I did. I planned on my digital agenda in my iPhone on every hour inbetween 7 AM and 10 PM on weekdays (and some adjusted timing in the weekend) an appointment with notification that I have stayed positive and to celebrate it, including some nice emoticons. My agenda is now completely full with appointments. LOL. It really looks funny. And…….. drumroll drumroll drumroll. It works like a charm. When I am at home, I hear the bleeps on two devices (with a second interval) and then I immediately get a big smile on my face, and get the song “Celebrate good times” from Kool & The Gang in my head. Wooohooo. Also seeing the notification (pop up) gives me a big smile. And when (occasionally) I had a “restart” in the past hour because of having a negative thought, I celebrate for being positive again. I totally L O V E it. So I continue to do so. And I am gonna make more arrangements in my direct environment so that I get even more positive outcome. Looking forward to achieve much more! I can do it!!

 

 be the best person of you

 

Have a great week!

 

With love,

Week 7 – Love, only love

keep love in your heart

 

With the recent horrifying events in Paris just a blink of an eye away, I’m writing this post. As living in the south of The Netherlands Paris is just a couple of hours driving from here. Lot’s of people are worried, and are expressing their concerns on different (social) media and also a lot of prayers and positive thoughts are sent to the survivors and the families of the victims. At the same time I realize that in so many other countries in the world wars are going on, on a day to day basis, and lot’s of people are being suppressed or are fearing for their lives because of their believes, religion or other reasons. The exploding attention for what happened in Paris and the very little attention to what happens in other parts of the world is very contradictory. I have no answer how to solve this. The only thing I can do – as I think about it –  is, act with as much love as possible in all the things I do and towards other people I meet.

 

Talking about love and the “interaction” with other people who are aggressive or disrespectful towards others, I had an experience which made me contemplate on ways of “expressing love”. Earlier this week on Wednesday I had a conversation with someone who was upset about something. The situation this person was in, was a difficult one and while she was talking I was sending love silently towards her, because I understood it wasn’t easy for her. At one point in this conversation though she started to get more upset and she started saying some things towards me I didn’t like at all (I couldn’t help her with her question and she discovered that someone who would have taken care of something, didn’t do that, so her situation got worse). I noticed I had to say “stop” to her behavior towards me, not because I got angry of got upset myself, but because of my love for myself. I felt it was disrespectful to my being to let those words in and I gave her calmly and with love in my voice the option to continue the conversation in a respectful way. She choose otherwise. So this made me think this past week more profoundly about expressing love in relationship to setting boundaries, as we are reading now scroll II of The Greatest Salesman, which is all about love.

 

I wondered whether or not setting boundaries was an act of love towards the other person or not. And if those two aspects are connected to each other or not. I noticed setting boundaries can be down with love, so in that case it is for me an act of love. So yes, there is a connection. And perhaps it also is an act of love towards the other person. I leave that question open, because I cannot judge for the other person. If setting boundaries is done in an angry way, it has a totally different energy. It has more to do with fear. But isn’t fear in a way coming from the want of love too, and sort of an expression of missing or losing love. A coin has two sides, but it represents the same thing, one side is very clearly to see, the opposite side has a more hidden message. As they say, there is something positive in every negative aspect. There is no light without darkness and no darkness without light. You can choose though how and what you express. 

For the bigger, aggressive events that are happening in the world right now, the blessing of what is happening is very very hard to find. And I have to dig really really deep to see positive aspects of it. I don’t see the other side of the coin yet. I have to say, I am still looking…

But let’s share love in all the ways we possibly can. Let us create a ripple-effect of love! That’s the least we can do. ❤️❤️

 

a blessing in bad things

 

 

With love,
