MK Week 2 – ooh ooh
Just wanted to share this
It is just amazing how much more you get from reading the MasterKey each time you go through it. A picture came to my mind today as I sat contemplating this last week and thinking about Haanel’s words in Chapter 2. Even though the image in my mind is not new, it struck me in a new, deeper way today than anytime previously.
‘Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is a concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power. This is the power which is being used by those who do not believe in the virtue of poverty, or the beauty of self-denial. They perceive that this is the talk of weaklings.’ (Haanel:intro)
Think about this little picture.
What is it that is preventing the Lion from getting out of the cage?
Most people automatically assume the obvious, it’s the bars of course! But I challenge you to think a little deeper. Is it really the bars? When you change the way you look at things the things you look at change. (W Dyer)
What happens to your thinking if we draw the image again a little differently? We still have the same number of bars, but now the Lion is FREE to leave the cage. Ut-oh………. could our old limiting beliefs and misinterpretation of the scenario have been blinding our subconscious mind to the real barrier!!?? It is not the bars that are holding the Lion prisoner at all but the space between the bars!!!!! Place the bars differently and we get a different outcome.
We all create mental bars in our mind that make us feel trapped. That hold us back from being our true self. What mental bars have you created in your own mind that are preventing you from the freedom you seek?
FEAR? POVERTY? DISEASE? INHARMONY? SELF DOUBT? WORRY? OPINION OF OTHERS? I could go on!!
‘It is often true that conditions of fear, worry, poverty, disease, inharmony and evils of all kinds dominate us by reason of false suggestions accepted by the unguarded subconscious mind. All this the trained conscious mind can entirely prevent by its vigilant protective action. It may properly be called “the watchman at the gate” of the great subconscious domain.’ (Haanel 2:14)
Fear of failure can stop us stepping out. Looking at your current bank balance can stop us trying. Focusing on aches, pains and sickness can limit our efforts. Being out of harmony with our true desires, and doubting our ability to achieve them can stop us making a decision to DO IT NOW. Worrying about all the things that might go wrong, or listening to the negative opinion of others can create barriers in our minds that paralyse us.
Know that these are all false bars that we use as excuses to procrastinate and languish in our comfort zone. Listen to your own heart. Your Subconscious Mind communicates with you all the time. It never stops. If your subconscious mind stopped you would not be alive! My featured blogger this week overcame her fear of blogging. Small steps taken in the right direction will move you towards your goal. Bravo Charity. Where will she be in 6 months? I can’t wait to find out. 🙂 You can follow her blog HERE.
‘The value of the subconscious is enormous; it inspires us; it warns us; it furnishes us with names and facts from the storehouse of memory. It directs out thoughts, tastes, and accomplishes tasks so intricate that no conscious mind, even it if had the power, has the capacity for.’ (Haanel 1:7)
In silence focus your mind and mentally move those bars to one side. Find something to LOVE in every day, focus on the RICHES in your life, think about all the parts of your body and life that are HEALTHY. Listen to your heart and feel HARMONY within, BELIEVE in YOUR SELF, have CONFIDENCE that the Universe would not put a desire in your heart without giving you the means of accomplishing it. And finally, ignore the blinkered opinions of those who can not feel what you feel and follow YOUR TRUTH. Set the courageous lion in you free and be the BEST YOU ever. It’s time to ROAR! You’re a Champion!
