Week 5 – Name it, Claim it!
It’s yours for the taking.
I mentioned briefly last week how I am changing every ‘we’ to ‘I’ and ‘your’ to ‘my’ as I read through each verse of the MasterKey this time around. WOW!!! It is like pouring oil on the flame of my Conscious mind. Everything is becoming so profound and clear in a way that I am struggling to describe. Just try it yourself.
‘The subconscious can and will solve any problem for
us me if we I know how to direct it. The subconscious processes are always at work; the only question is, are we am I to be simply a passive recipient s of this activity, or are we am I to consciously direct the work? Shall we I have a vision of the destination to be reached, the dangers to be avoided, or shall we I simply drift?’ (Haanel 5:2)
Haanel goes on to explain how the life I am living today is a result of my past thinking, and my future will be the result of what I am thinking today. We have already established that we live in an attraction based Universe, therefore logic tells me it is imperative to ensure the thoughts I have are positive, happy and focused on what I want my ideal life to look like. If I focus on things I do not want, I will only attract more of what I do not want. Like a beautiful garden needs tending to eliminate weeds and allow its beauty to be seen, so my mind also needs a mental house clean to rid it of negativity and allow positive thoughts to grow. This is achieved through Sitting everyday in silence for 15 – 30 minutes, ensuring I only allow my mind to listen to and read positive uplifting things, and using my ability to imagine in my minds eye my ideal life.
Verse 14 talks about a fine estate awaiting me if I am prepared to claim it. What does this mean?……… This is a metaphor for the power and beauty of my mind, with which I have the ability to think, imagine and create my ideal life. We all have a mind, and most people dream, but few claim their thoughts, take possession of them, focus their energy and claim their ideal life for themselves. Eventually, if left unchecked, their mind and dreams become so overgrown with metaphorical thistles and weeds of negativity that their True Self with its original dream is almost unrecognisable. They did not claim their power, desire their ideal with all their heart, assert their conscious mind, claim dominion over their subconscious and take possession of their thoughts.
‘In the domain of the mind and spirit, in the domain of practical power, such an estate is
yours mine. You are I am the heir! You I can assert your my heirship and possess, and use this rich inheritance. Power over circumstances is one of the fruits, health, harmony and prosperity are assets upon its balance sheet. If offers you me poise and peace. It costs you me only the labor of studying and harvesting its great resources. It demands no sacrifice, except the loss of your my limitations, your my servitudes, your my weakness. It clothes you me with self-honor, and puts a scepter in your my hands.’ (Haanel 5:15)
What will you do? It is both daunting and freeing when you finally accept you are 100% responsible for the life you are living today. My physical body and some character traits are due to family heredity, but my beliefs and life are the result of my own, individual thoughts. I have attracted everything into my life through my feelings, which are vibrational frequencies generated by my power to think and focus. Positive thoughts vibrate at a higher frequency than negative thoughts. It’s actually so simple when you think about it, but to master the subconscious mind takes practice and applied effort.
Those who I have come into possession of this inheritance are and shall be never quite the same again. They I have come into possession of a sense of power hitherto undreamed of. They I can never again be timid, weak, vacillating, or fearful. They are I am indissolubly connected with Omnipotence. Something in them me has been aroused; they I have suddenly discovered that they I possess a tremendous latent ability of which they were I was heretofore entirely unconscious.’ (Haanel 5:24)
