Wrong Focus – Master Key Experience – Week 2

It’s something about the 2nd week when they tell you to be enthusiastic, be emotional and shout your DMP on the subway. The thought of sharing my innermost desires with someone who doesn’t know me intimately is difficult. A complete stranger with my 30 second introduction why would I tell you such a thing? I ask myself; Are you embarrassed to have such a dream, or is it so big and elaborate that you can’t even believe it yourself?

Week 2 was a quiet week for me. My main focus was my DMP; nailing my Personal Pivotal Needs (PPN) This year they’ve changed from Autonomy and True Health to Helping Others and Recognition for Creative Expression. They tie in perfectly with my Definite Major Purpose (DMP). I am continuing to focus on true health for myself, then I get the opportunity to help others in my community find wholeness and I get recognized for my creative gifts. I feel so confident about this DMP and I’d shout it on a subway… lol! I almost had a Dr. Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham moment there! I’m possible. It’s possible; Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. Very smart!! I’m excited to share Let’s Leave a Legacy with the world.

Proverbs 13:22: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”

I am the gratefullest!

The Power Within – Master Key Experience – Week 1

“You need not acquire this power. You already have it. But you want to understand it, you want to use it; you want to control it; you wants to impregnate yourself with it, so that you can go forward and carry the world before you.”

The Master Keys chose me a few years ago and I’ve been seeking that power within since then. I already believed it the Bible tells me I am special and I am here for purpose… but doesn’t tell me how to obtain that power within.


Tools for success include belief in yourself and the system being taught, consistency (be the student) and become so confident to share your greatest secret dream that seems to haunt you.

“Failure no longer will be my payment for struggle. Just as nature made no provision for my body to tolerate pain neither hasn’t made any provision for my life to suffer failure. Failure, like pain, is alien to my life. In the past I accepted it as I accepted pain. Now I reject it and I am prepared for wisdom and principles which will guide me out of the shadows into the sunlight of wealth, position, and happiness far beyond my most extravagant dreams until even the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides will seem no more than my just reward.”

In Scroll I from the Greatest Salesman in the World it promised that failure will no longer be my payment for struggle. So I am learning to reject failure and accept that success is my destiny. By accepting success my reward is as great as the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides. If you’re into Greek mythology, that apple tree is guarded, yet we obtain access to all of its great reward. Therefore, I won’t stop until I’ve received that belongs to me.

Week Nine Master Key Experience-I am thankful!

On November 18th I felt as if I received the worst news. My orthopedic surgeon’s nurse called, I listened patiently as she explains that due to high COVID19 numbers that all elective surgeries that requiring an overnight stay have been canceled… in awe I just listened, very disappointed… I was 6 days away from what I considered to be a life transforming surgery. I was getting hip replaced.

Did I mention to you guys that I’m 400 plus pounds, with osteoarthritis in both hips, no cartridge between my joints, the left one is the worst, that one has bone spurs and the left leg is 2 inches shorter than the right, so my bodies out of alignment… also did I mention that this has been going on for 5 plus years? I’m 49 years old on a walker. THIS SURGERY ISN’T ELECTIVE! To me it was a must have.

All the people who heard that it was delayed; in some way shape or form said that it was for my good. The crowd couldn’t be wrong, right?

Me on the inside I was screaming, and crying, giving folks the middle finger in my head and writing hypothetical letters in my head to Allina… Dear Allina Hospitals, you do understand that this surgery isn’t elective and so on and so forth… to say the least, I didn’t agree with those opinions.

I am so grateful for my master mind alliance that keeps lifting my arms in victory! I felt so defeated, weak and in despair. I called out for help and they rescued me. I didn’t do anything to deserve it. I was reminded by a friend from this week’s lesson that, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.” And from Scroll 2 that, “I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh; rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation. Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I will uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer. Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth.”

I still struggle with the fact that my surgery was postponed, but I am getting better. My surgery has been rescheduled for December 21st. I’m using the law of substitution to overcome my mental hurdles and working to focus on loving me as is! Thank you to my master mind alliance, you are innumerable and if I tried to name you all I’d miss someone. All I can do it pay it forward; the love, the appreciation and gratitude. With all of the love surrounding me I feel undeserving of it all, yet I drink it in.

How fitting to be so thankful on a day so many call Thanksgiving Day!

Lesson 4:12
12 Unless you do this, you had better not start at all, because modern psychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are forming the habit of failure; absolute, ignominious failure. If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall; if you make up your mind to do something, doit; let nothing, no one, interfere; the “I” in you has determined, the thing is settled; the die is cast, there is no longer any argument.

This week in Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World, what stood out to me is that I am a slave to good habits and,

As the words of these scrolls are consumed by my mysterious mind I am awakening, each morning with a vitality I have never known before. My vigor has increased, my enthusiasm has risen, my desires to meet the world has overcame every fear I once knew at sunrise, and I am happier than I ever believed it possible in this world of strife and sorrow.

Failure no longer be my payment for struggle. Just as nature made no provision for my body to tolerate pain neither has it made any provision for my life to suffer failure. Failure, like pain, is alien to my life. In the past I accepted it as I accepted pain. Now I reject it and I am prepared for wisdom and principles which will guide me out of the shadows into the sunlight of wealth, position, and happiness far beyond my most extravagant dreams until even the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides will seem no more than my just reward.

I am moving forward staying focused and developing good habits.

Master Key Experience Week 3 – Take 3!

“I don’t know what’s in you. You’ll have to find that out for yourself. But I do know one thing: you’ll never find it in the safety of this room. I tried that all my life. It doesn’t work. There’s a whole world out there. And you’ll have to begin by letting people see who you really are.”

Dorothy said to The Wiz

So, I was watching The Wiz with Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. It was the end of the movie after Dorothy tells the Scarecrow, the Lion and the Tinman that everything they needed was already within them. Then she sings a beautiful song about believing in yourself. Michael Jackson the Scarecrow asks Diana Ross who’s playing Dorothy… what about you Dorothy? “You’ll never get home”… then Glenda the Good Witch of the South shows up played by Lena Horne, and told her that she had it in her all along… Dorothy said, home, inside me, I don’t understand. Glenda, told her home is a knowing… then she sings a beautiful song about believing in yourself and knowing your rights… and she tells her to click her heels together 3 times… that’s when The Wiz played by Richard Pryor approaches Dorothy and she tells him the quote above, I’ll paraphrase, “I knew what was in them, I don’t know what’s in you, but what I do know, get out of your comfort zone, I stayed there my whole life, there’s a whole world out there let people see who you really are.”

It’s so very true. I had backed myself back into a corner, but when I began to focus my intentions on what I wanted the whole universe is working on my behalf. In this week’s lesson #27 I am learning that, “The finite cannot inform the Infinite. You are simply to say what you desire, not how you are to obtain it.” From my Self-Confidence Formula #5, “…I succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people, I induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I cause others to believe in me, because I believe in them, and in myself.”

I have been able to encourage people to help me towards my goals of true health just through my enthusiasm and stamina to keep pushing towards my goals. If you read any of my other blogs you know that I’m dealing with some hip issues. I am so excited to say that I am scheduled for hip replacement surgery on November 24th. I have so many things to be thankful for and the Master Key Experience is one of the things, I am so grateful for my Dharma manifesting in my life. Thanks to everyone on the 2020 team.

I always keep my promises!

Week 2 Master KeyExperience – I Got Scared

I literally closed my mouth… I was afraid…
I’ve got so much potential… I felt like the pulled back arrow on the bow for so long, just sitting there waiting for something to happen. For so long I have been hiding in the shadows, standing on the wall, like a fly on the wall watching and observing, thinking to myself when will it be my time. What should feel great to me is causing me anxiety making me want to run. It’s been more than 5 years now; my level of pain increased gradually over time and today I can hardly walk, I need a double hip replacement, my left hip is bone on bone, I have a BMI over 60%, I’m home bound and mainly leave the house for doctors appointments. IF THAT AIN’T A REASON TO START TALKING!!! I’ve been backed into a corner and I’m coming out fighting.

This is Master Key Experience Week 2 – Take 3. I’ve been living with my approved DMP (Definite Major Purpose) for one year. One of my PPN’s (Pivotal Personal Needs) is True Health. When I say,

“Today, I live the reality of true health. I am invigorated walking for 30 minutes daily. Hydrating myself with 64 ounces of water per day and enjoying an alkaline based meal plan. I united my mind, body and spirit with yoga. Consistently, by November 30, 2020. As I practice my new habits, I am more confident, standing tall, full of life and joy.”

I imagine being able to walk with enjoyment for 30 minutes and not having to pay for it, in extreme pain for the next 3 days recovering. I see myself well hydrated and healthy eating properly and being active.

“It rejuvenates me and causes my heart to well up with joy to be near my loved ones. The delight of watching my family grow and thrive is priceless.”

I’m very satisfied with my own company. I believe there is a time and a place for it all. To be with my loved ones is important and it’s part of true health.

“I am accompanied by my husband. I lean securely on him knowing he loves, protects and provides for me and our home. As his good thing; I reciprocate love, affection and turn our house into a home before September 29, 2021.”

Being loved and reciprocating love is true health.

“I bask in the liberty of knowing I live peacefully in my 3 bedroom home on a large piece of land in Gainsville, Florida; with a beautiful garden and an abundance of fruit trees before September 29, 2021.”

Having a healthy home is part of true health.

Master Key Experience – Week 1

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 has been an emotional day. My Pivotal Personal Needs are true health and legacy. I’m going through something I’d otherwise keep to myself. What I am about to share is regarding true health. I was told I little over 90 days ago that I need a double hip replacement… Fantastic! I thought I was going to get a cortisone shot for pain and keep it moving… Nope, not at all! They said, it’s bone on bone and there’s bone spurs, a shot would hurt more than it helps and by the way, to get approved for the surgery you need to get your BMI down to about 40% to get approved for the surgery… That’s anywhere from 75 to 100 pounds. For those of you without bone on bone action, how easy is it to get that amount of weight off? So the next idea is the do weight loss surgery… my BMI is about 60% so I qualify for a surgery, now it’s about the compliance guidelines, checking off lists… Perfect! Doctor Dock said, 5 months give or take for approval… Phenomenal! I know I’m to blame, that things got this bad. Tomorrow, September 30th I followup with ortho to see what I have to do to get approved for surgery… in 90 days I lost a total of 3 pounds.

It has been an emotional day… I know I didn’t get the news I desired today and I can live with it.

The following day, September 30th I went to see my orthopedic doctor Doctor Anderson, the man who would preform the surgery. We sit down to talk. Discussing my hip, my weight and his greatest concern. He looked my x-rays and said my hip should have been replaced 5 years ago, he said he doesn’t require a certain BMI percentage and his greatest concern was my risk of infection is higher due to my size… somehow after yesterday’s report I he might say the same… yet with compassion he said; I don’t know how you get up everyday and move around with how bad you hip is… honestly if you scheduled it for tomorrow I’d do it… I told him to give me a month to take as much as possible or to get my body as healthy as possible in 30 days… the excitement, the shock and awe of it all! I’m so grateful for my team who has worked with me toward true health… my physical therapist told me to follow-up as instructed… I was told one I get this surgery the majority of pain I deal with on a daily basis will be gone… my heart is willing up with joy and I prepare.

Master Key Experience – Week 7

To be totally honest, this week started out challenging.  On Sunday I missed the webinar; I didn’t get the link.

I have been moving through different emotions; I am excited about my DMP and manifesting my darma.  I really questioned my emotions.  I wrote down my dreams in under 400 words.  I understand everything that we are doing in this course.  I am learning to plant a seed, and leaving it undisturbed, so that it can germinate and grow.  A new and good habit has been born, for when an act becomes easy through constant repetition it becomes a pleasure to preform and if it is a pleasure to preform it is man’s nature to perform it often.


Master Key Experience – Week 6 – My DMP was approved

When I started this course I was super excited, seems that I’ve been a dreamer for a lifetime, but the Master Key Experience is helping me become the Alchemist that I have always been.

So when it came down to writing my DMP I had my two PPN’s that helped me with some of my points of view.  At first they were true health and autonomy.  It covered many of my desires and with the second revision it was changed to true health and legacy.  After revision 5, it was approved.

As I was reading one day a word in my DMP caused discomfort.  I wrote, “I am surrounded by friends and family.”  It made me feel crowded; I don’t like feeling claustrophobia.  I changed it to, “I am continually near loved ones.”  There are other places I edited to make it flow easily; like ebb in flow.

Master Key Experience – Week 5 – A Week of Silence

Finding my voice…

Having to read my DMP out loud around others is revealing.  Telling anyone who is in earshot some of my most intimate desires.

I almost went a week with out doing my service cars, reading or anything.  My house has been full and has been for a while now.  I found the confidence to speak me DMP out loud so that I can complete my daily service cards and everything else.

It felt really good to share my ideas and receive the support from family.
