Week 22a I can be
What I will to be
This week is another interim week on the MKMMA, meaning we have no webinar and the choice to re-read which ever chapters from the Master Keys we choose in order to ensure we become self directed students. I decided to just open my now ‘huge’ folder randomly each day and read which ever chapter appeared. It just so happened that on a couple of occasions I found myself reading Chapter 8 which is all about the importance of Imagination! Funny that…… seeing as the idea for my new business is to reconnect people with their creative imagination! 🙂
“…the cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal out of which your future will emerge.” (Haanel 8:6)
“Imagination is the light by which we can penetrate new worlds of thought and experience.” (Haanel 8:8)
“Imagination is a plastic power, molding the things of sense into new forms and ideals.” (Haanel 8:10)
“Imagination is the constructive form of thought which must precede every constructive form of action.” (Haanel 8:11)
Well, hit me with a brick why don’t you!!!! I feel the message coming through loud and clear is that I am on the right path. My whole life has been one of imagination and creativity of some description and my passion to share it and help others reconnect with their creative spirit is gaining momentum. In Part 2 of last weeks post I mentioned I had signed up for a short teleseminar course in running workshops. I spent today sitting in the same country lane as last week filling in the worksheet which really helped me focus on what I want to achieve, my ideal client and what I want clients and myself to gain.
“Successful men make it their business to hold ideals of the conditions which they wish to realise. They constantly hold in mind the next step necessary to the ideal for which they are striving. Thoughts are the material with which they build, and the imagination is their mental workshop. Mind is the ever-moving force with which they secure the persons and circumstances necessary to build their success structure, and imagination is the matrix in which all great things are fashioned.” (Haanel 8:24)
In my silent time today, for some reason my mind was drawn to the idea of our birth and the miracle of the human being. “I am nature’s greatest miracle.” (Mandino)
If the miracle journey of our conception into human form is so magnificently and masterfully woven, is it not right that we honour ourselves and the Universe by becoming the person we were created to be? Haanel tells us that the strongest affirmation we can use is “I can be what I will to be.” (4:9)
This affirmation has been churning over in my mind all week. If you place the emphasis on a different word in the sentence each time you say it it becomes more and more amazing. I found my mind even rearranging the words to create more meaning.
