Week C16 – Faith vs Fear
Love is all you need!
After the last two weeks of mounting frustrations (see Week C14 and Week C15) and becoming aware of a slip in my positive thinking, this week I stepped up my game, dug a little deeper and turned the corner on my path to bliss. I also tuned into the Deepak Chopra global mediation on Sunday which was great and I am following the extended 21 days of meditation on Grace which I’m finding so calming and relaxing. Focus, gratitude and awareness have been evident this week.
‘Your emotions will invariably seek to express themselves in action. The emotion of love will therefore seek expression in demonstrations of loving service.’ (Haanel 27:1)
My week began with a great meeting Monday morning with a lovely new friend and finished in the evening with a new lady starting piano lessons with me to fulfil one of her childhood ambitions. Tuesday began with teaching a fun saxophone lesson to another new friend and mentor also taking the time to fulfil a dream, followed by a Skype meeting with a fabulous MasterKey member from Canada – isn’t technology just amazing! In the evening I received a couple of heartfelt testimonials from members of a local business club for my teaching and mentoring skills, with the comment that I was totally underselling myself and my Gifted Life Creative Personal Development Course, and how I was already helping change lives.
Wednesday saw another Skype call with another MasterKey member and also one of my 3 regular weekly calls with my fabulous Mastermind partner Konstantina. Thursday I attended a ladies in business lunch for the first time and made more positive connections with people and in the evening I ran the third week of seven of my current Gifted Life course. Friday I faced one of my biggest mental and physical challenges, conquering the fear of heights by completing the Go Ape course with my family. …..I did it! One very happy and relieved bunny!
‘As all conditions are thought creations and therefore entirely mental, disease and lack are simply mental conditions in which the person fails to perceive the truth; as soon as the error is removed, the condition is removed.’ (Haanel 24:8)
How do life’s experiences turn around so dramatically from frustration, fear and negativity to joy, courage and positivity? Through the power of thought! One thing that I have heard time and time again over the last couple of years is ‘words don’t teach’. It is only experience that really teaches and my own experiences this week have helped me to understand on a new level how powerful my own thoughts really are. If like attracts like, then doesn’t it makes sense to focus on faith and love?
‘Hold in mind the condition desired; affirm it as an already existing fact. This indicates the value of a powerful affirmation. By constant repetition it becomes a part of ourselves. We are actually changing ourselves; are making ourselves what we want to be.'(Haanel 9:intro)
‘Here we have a vision of the law, (Law of Attraction), we see “cause and effect”, we see that thought necessarily precedes and determines action. If we are wise, we shall come into a realization of the tremendous fact that no arbitrary condition can exist for a moment, and that human experience is the result of an orderly and harmonious sequence.’ (Haanel 16:10) – (my words added in brackets)
What holds most of us back from achieving the things we desire in life is fear. By becoming the observer of my own life, paying attention to how I feel, and using the tools from the MasterKey Experience I am changing my life. It is the most exciting journey ever and I am overcoming fears and replacing them with faith in my Self, finding strength, courage and Self belief in ways I never imagined. And the adventure continues! 🙂 ….. Come on and let your feelings show!
