The Silence of the Lamps (W9)

Repost from 26 November 2019

That’s not a typo. As much as I love Jodi Foster’s character in the movie ‘the silence of the lambs’, I want to talk about lamps.

Not just any lamp, but the lamp within.

We all have one. Like a magical Aladdin’s Lamp, only better!

We have found that the Universal substance is “All Health,” “All Substance” and “All Love” and that the mechanism of attachment whereby we can consciously connect with this Infinite supply is in our method of thinking. To think correctly is therefore to enter into the “Secret Place of the Most High.” What shall we think? If we know this we shall have found the proper mechanism of attachment which will relate us to “Whatsoever things we desire.” This mechanism may seem very simple when I give it to you, but read on; you will find that it is in reality the “Master-Key,” the “Alladin’s lamp,” if you please; you will find that it is the foundation, the imperative condition, the absolute law of well-doing, which means, well-being. (Haanel, Master Key 9.4 & 9.5)

Unlike the genies who grant you only three wishes, the “genie” in the inner lamp that we have access to sets NO boundaries on your wishes. None!

It’s not about quantum. – Unlimited!

It’s about quality.

If our predominant mental attitude is one of power, courage, kindliness and sympathy, we shall find that our environment will reflect conditions in correspondence with these thoughts.

Haanel (Master Key System, 9.30)

If you polish your lamp with a dirty cloth, the lamp won’t shine.
Find your very best piece of cloth, woven from the highest quality of threads you can imagine.

Imagine. – Key word!
Visualise your desires. Focus, see it with your mind’s eye.

 Every success has been accomplished by persistent concentration upon the object in view.

Haanel (Master Key System, 9.34)

It’s Thanksgiving week in the USA so there won’t be a Master Key webinar on Sunday. Will we miss it? Certainly! Meanwhile, we get to keep doing our exercises that improve our positive mental attitude; to polish our lamps …. in silence.


Here are some other fine folks who are polishing their lamps within:

I Hope You Dance! (W8)

Repost from 12. November 2019.

Here’s what I wrote during my first year in the Master Key Experience, Week 8:

I keep saying that “this is the best week” of the Master Key Experience.

Well, what can I do after Sunday’s webinar but repeat myself? And then… reading Lesson 8 of the Master Key System. Oh, my friggin’ goodness! This IS the best week!

“The law of attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions, environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual, characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think once in a while (…) BUT your predominant mental attitude is what counts.” (Haanel, 8.18)

Let me repeat that:

Your predominant mental attitude is what counts.

And – you get to choose your own mental attitude, as we have found out by DOING the exercises from the previous weeks of this mental attitude-altering, life-altering course!

Therefore, my dear fellow students, please allow me to present this song as a gift for you. The lyrics are in the video:

I HOPE YOU DANCE!

I really hope you will.
Promise me you will!
‘Cos I know that you always keep your promises.

With Love,
Bibi

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Fast Forward to 2020:

Now that I look back at my blog posts from last year, I am reminded of all the positive changes in my own mental attitude -and it happened in just a matter of weeks. Multiple years of therapy in the past had not helped me much (not permanently anyway), but this course made all the difference – and it happened FAST! No wonder I want everyone in the whole world to take this course!

I know that this course, or experience, is different for everyone. What one individual gets out of this course is different from everyone else, our goals are also very different, and whether you reach those goals depends on a few factors: The amount of mental luggage (aka cement) when joining this course is, perhaps, one – our willingness to be brutally honest with ourselves and stop blaming others is certainly another. Having said that – remember that YOU are perfect the way you are at your point in your own journey! Perfectly perfect, perhaps not complete. Be kind to yourself. Love yourself for who you are and where you are right now.

I know that I have a long journey ahead of me still before I truly am, 100 % of the time, the person I intend to become. But I also know that I CAN be that person when I continue to be persistent with a clear ideal as my goal. Without a goal, how else will I know which path to choose when I come to a fork in the road? Every single choice I make is at a fork in the road. Whether it’s a choice in what I think, feel, say, or do – it is nothing more than a choice between one path or the other. I can choose the path that leads to my ideal goal, or I can choose to take a detour down a different path…. It is always a choice.

I do not ALWAYS choose the path that leads to my ideal goal, but I am getting better at it. When my first year at the Master Key Experience ended in March 2020, I kept doing the mental exerises every single day, and I still do, because I know first hand that they WORK. One step at a time, one minor change at a time, the compounding effect will get me where I want to be – and to WHO I want to be.

Why do you think Mark & Davene, who have been teaching this course for a decade, still do the very same exercises they teach their students?

“For when an act becomes easy through constant repetition it becomes a pleasure to perform, and if it is a pleasure to perform it is man’s nature to perform it often. When I perform it often, it becomes a habit and I become its slave and since it is a good habit, this is my will.” (from Scroll I, The Greatest Salesman in the World)

The mental exercises we learn is this course can be compared to building muscles – once you have’em, you can’t stop exercising and expect the muscles to stay strong, let alone expect them to grow…

So I keep going to the gym. The mind gym, that is. It’s not “just exercises” anymore- it’s a way of life. It’s a way of being. Just like ALL habits are, good and bad alike. Choose good habits and the bad ones vanish. It’s that simple. Persistent Practise Prouduces Perfect Presentations.

Here are some other fine folks who keep going to the mind gym:

Love & Forgive (W7)

Repost from 13 November 2019

Here’s what I wrote during my first year with the Master Key Experience, Week 7:

Mental Diet

Can I go 7 days without a negative thought lingering in my mind for more than 7 seconds before I substitute it for an uplifting, excited or any other positive thought? Of course I can! How do I know? Because I’m practising, and we all know that everything becomes easy with practise.

Forgiveness

Practise and love. Forgiveness and faith. I think that reading Scroll II of the Greatest Salesman in the Wold every day will make it easier to forgive. If we find it hard to forgive someone, maybe it’s easier to forgive their Golden Buddha within. When we resent someone for something they did in the past, we keep reliving that moment over and over again. The word ‘resent’ comes from French ressentir (to feel), from Latin re + sentīre (re-feel), so by not forgiving we repeat the feeling and just end up hurting ourselves. Not forgiving someone is like drinking poison and hoping the other person will die, when, in fact, resentment is like a cancer in our soul.

When we forgive, it does not mean that whatever someone did was OK. When we forgive, we do not thereby give them permission to do it again, nor do we say that their behaviour didn’t hurt us. It did! Their behaviour was wrong, but we can still forgive the person who did it. Wouldn’t you want the same grace if you did somethig wrong? “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.”

You don’t have to tell the person that you forgave them (which is why we can also forgive people who have died), you forgive for your own sake – and when we forgive, we cut the negative chain that has bound us to that person. We set ourselves free. The more we forgive, the more we are forgiven (Emerson’s law of “Give more, get more”).

Autosuggestion

This week I recorded my entire DMP (Definite Major Purpose) in my native language (Norwegian). The song playing in the background is ‘Love is all around’, instrumental version, which I found on Youtube. I played it on my PC while recording my voice on my phone, using a free dictaphone app. Easy-peasy! I started the recording by saying, ‘I greet this day with love in my heart’ and at the end I sang the refrain of the background song – to my past, present and future self, “You know I love you, I always will. My mind’s made up by the way that I feel. There’s no beginning, there’ll be no end, ‘cos on my love you can depend!”  I’ve sung that song a gazillion times before, but never to myself. Holy WOW!!

Keep Walking

Since I can’t walk more than 10-15 meters on a good day, I applied for a parking permit for the disabled a few months ago. I received a letter back this week; application declined. My reaction? Rejoice! Why? Because I’m not going to need it. My goal is to be able to walk by May 2020, and I celebrate as if it has already happened! Just watch this space in the months to come!

Keep walking …

Fast forward to 2020:

By January I could walk 100 meters without crutches, by May 1 kilometre without breaks, and I have since been on a few 4 kilometres hikes – although with a few seconds breaks now and then to rest my legs, but hey – I CAN WALK!! When I saw a specialist on my condition in July, he said that he couldn’t explain how this improvement had happened since the last time he saw me (July 2019) and he added, “Whatever you are doing, keep doing it!”

And I am, ‘cos I always keep my promises.

Here are some other fine folks who keep their promises:

W6 – I’m in Shape!

Here’s what I wrote for week 6 in my first year through the Master Key Experience:

Jokingly, I have always said, “I’m in shape. Round is a shape!”

But that’s not the kind of shape I’m talking about. I am surrounded by shapes of blue rectangles, red circles, green triangles, and yellow squares – all over the house, in my car, on the outside of my MKE ring binders, yup, all over the place. And I’m lovin’ it!

My darling made the shapes out of wood for me.

After the webinar on Sunday night, I stayed up till the wee morning hours to fill in my two PPNs and two main SMART goals inside the shapes. I also found some photos I wanted to include on my “Movie Poster” aka Dreamboard. It felt great finding those photos, I was living my dream and visualising it. I FELT it!!

After making my Movie Poster, I printed out a few A4 sized ones to keep in my MKE ring binders and hung up a few at strategic places around the house, one is also glued to the back of my written DMP. I printed out a couple of index card sized Movie Poster as well – one is now a bookmark in the Greatest Salesman in the World (so I see it at least 3 x daily), the other one is in my pencil case (where the blue, red, green and yellow markers are), and I’m using a photo of my Movie Poster as the background on my PC screen and mobile phone.

Another thing I loved about this week’s webinar was the part about seeing our future self as our very best friend! YESSSS! Love that! This previous procrastinator NEEDED to hear that!! I’m done expecting my future self to clean up after my present self!


I have changed so much already, compared to where I was when we started 6 weeks ago. If you read my Week 1 blog post, you know that I was not at a good place when I joined this course… but now? Holy macaroni, I’m so exited and happy! I also have an optimism about my future that I have never been even remotely close to having before.

Sure, I still fall now and then – but I get back up! Sometimes I’m worried that there was an assignment or exercise I forgot or that there was something I misunderstood, but I remind myself that it’s all good …. and that a relaxed mind is vital, no, crucial! Take a deep breath … and repeat: PEACE be the journey

—-

Fast forward to 2020:


Every since I heard Davene talk about how she put palmtrees around her and Mark’s flat to bring their DMP to life, I have filled my house with “my DMP in 3D” – such as donkey figurines to remind me of my farm haven for donkeys and other animals, my tea cup has a donkey on it, I’ve bought clothes with donkey prints, I have photos on the wall and fridge of the four donkeys I adopted via The Donkey Sanctuary, and I’ve met several donkeys in person as well, AND – last week I got a donkey tattoo on my arm! 😀 (I already have a tattoo of the compass and shapes on the other).

Yesterday I made a book cover to bring one of my children’s book to life, printed it out and glued it onto a book so it looks real:

I had to make the cover a little taller than my design to fit on the book

Seeing my book cover on an actual book feels fantastic!! I have placed it standing up so I see it when I’m working on my books. I’m illustrating my children’s books with my own drawings, but I won’t show anyone these illustrations until the books are published – the first one before August 2021. For the sake of the “DMP in 3D” book cover, I made it by editing some free cliparts. I love playing with Photoshop like this!


In what ways have YOU brought your DMP to life? I’d love to hear in the comments below.

MKE W5 – No Opinion!

How come we humans tend to believe that our opinions are so important? Not only do we believe our opinions are important, we might even believe that we KNOW something – even if our opinion is really just a belief based on nothing other than more beliefs!

It’s Week 5 of the Master Key Experience and one of the exercises presented to our new members is to not have an opinion. On anything, unless you are an expert on the matter AND you are asked for your opinion. Otherwise, NO OPINION.

Period.

Give it a try and see how many seconds YOU can go without having an opinion… Don’t worry – practise makes perfect.

A Matter Of Perspective


I’d like to share a situation from my own 1st year through the Master Key Experience. Some friends and I were having a meal together when one of them asked us about our opinion on something that had been on the news, which I had not seen because I do not watch the news (most people get very opinionated when I say that, by the way). I said I knew nothing about it, why it happened, and what the consequences might or might not be. “Oh, but surely you must have an opinion!”, my friend said (his voice was raised by now). I stood my ground and told him that I wouldn’t have an opinion about something I knew zero about.

To my surprise, my friend got very upset with me, so I asked him why my opinion mattered so much. “Because you must take a stand!”, he exclaimed. When I asked him the importance of me taking a stand, he said it was in order for me to know how to vote next time… So I asked, “How come all those people who do watch the news and form an opinion and take a stand vote so differently? How come they don’t all vote the same as you?”

The look on my friend’s face sealed the end of that discussion.

Check out this video: Everything is a Remix, which explains how all our opinions are made.

Have a good, non-opinionated life everyone!

MKE W3 – I am Changing!

“Should there be anything ‘too good to be true’ in the Master Key Experience, I believe it anyway – for I have nothing to lose, but everything to gain!”

I’m really glad that I blogged every single week when I first did the Master Key Experience. It’s been very interesting looking at my blog posts from that year, seeing where I was at in my life and how much I struggled in the beginning…. But I paddled through and it was ALL worth it!!

Here’s what I wrote during Week 3 back then, with the headline “I am Changing!”

This week, I’ve made a promise to myself:

“Should there be anything ‘too good to be true’ in the Master Key Experience, I believe it anyway – for I have nothing to lose, but everything to gain!”
– And I always keep my promises.

My old blueprint is being re-written. Small changes, perhaps, but changes nevertheless! This being only the 3rd week out of 6 MONTHS all together, I can’t stop but wondering which changes I will make in the months to come! But let me not haste, but rather celebrate the changes I have noticed.

Ahh, the magic of repeating!! Little did I know that the repeating of “Do it Now!” 25 x, twice a day could cause such an impact!! (If I have been a master of anything before, I’ve been a master of procrastination). But lo and behold – I now DO stuff and I want to be a Master of ‘Doing it Now!’

I am much more aware when I hear myself complain, and I am getting better at stopping myself in the tracks. Same goes for stopping my own negative self-talk and whenever I feel, think, or say anything that is nothing more than my old blueprint’s pessimistic B.S.! Admittedly, I am not a master at stopping it yet – but I am improving!

Another change I’m seeing is what I choose to feed my mind. I used to binge watch all kinds of brain-dead series on various streaming platforms, but now I find myself wanting to fill my mind with educational and uplifting stuff such as “You are the Placebo” with Joe Dispenza (which I highly recommend!), and other relevant videos on YouTube – relevant and in line with the teachings of the Master Key Experience.

My conscious mind is The Watchman of the Gate; whatever my conscious mind is thinking of, my subconscious will be influenced by. Period.

Relax

MKE W2 – I Have Faith!

I’m really glad that I blogged every single week when I first did the Master Key Experience. It’s been very interesting looking at my blog posts from that year, seeing where I was at in my life and how much I struggled in the beginning…. But I paddled through and it was ALL worth it!!

Here’s what I wrote during Week 2 back then, with the headline “I Have Faith!”

I am starting to get a better picture of what it’s all about…. and I have faith that the MKE process works, if I do the work. And I will. I AM!

This week I’m really focused on finding my purpose and desires and I will tweak my written DMP accordingly (Definite Major Purpose). I want to make sure my habits are supportive of those desires – my desires. Not anyone else’s – and not what I’ve previously thought that I “ought to” desire.

My two PPN’s are ‘True Health’ and ‘Recognition for Creative Expression’. The latter need has always been there, on many occasions also fulfilled, whereas True Health isn’t something I have prioritised over the years… and the result is obvious. Suffice it to say that my health NEEDS to be a priority, or I’ll never reach any of my goals…

My mental/emotional health has been in crumbles after I “hit the wall” with a bang one year ago. I am confident that the MKE will not only speed up the mental and emotional healing process, but also be much better (understatement of the year) than anything else I have ever tried in order to overcome the issues that have been a part of my life and held me back for as long as I can remember – such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and what have you …

If my physical and mental health weren’t in such urgent need of improvement, I might have picked a different PPN. (Edit 2020: After reaching my most important health goals within a matter of months I thanked my PPN of ‘True Health’ for helping me get there and then picked a different PPN in its place – namely Autonomy. True Health is happening for me anyway, and I really wanted to embrace my need for Autonomy, and learn to clearly communicate my personal boundaries).

During MKE Week 1, I felt overwhelmed and I had doubts. As I write this, Week 2 has just begun but I feel so much better already! Sure, there is a lot of work and it takes me hours every day. I guess I read and write slowly. But that’s OK – for now I have faith that the MKE can indeed teach me to turn my life around, and I am willing to do the work. It’s the best time-investment I can do!

Here’s a photo of a card I made a few years ago (the text is a rubber stamp). I will keep this quote as a reminder this week: “Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen”. ‘Cos it is! 🙂

I have lots of faith,
and I promise to use it wisely.

I always keep my promises.
Bibi L.

=============================================

Fast forward to October 2020:
I am forever grateful for the work that my past self put into her journey with the Master Key Experience. I thank my past self for my current health, my well being, my present life! I’m so proud of what my past self managed to do, and how far she came in a matter of months because she did ALL of the exercises and practised her new habits, every day! My past self was pretty awesome if you ask me, and I should know 😉

W1 B – Looking back on my own first week

I can still remember what it was like to be a first-time student at the Master Key Experience. When reading the blog post I had written during my very first week, it’s also a reminder of how much I have learned and grown since then.

Personal growth is a life-long process. I still have some “stuff” to work on (don’t we all?), but because of the MKE I have found the tools that really do work when I am willing to use them and take charge of my life. No more excuses, no more blaming and pointing fingers at others. My life is MY responsibility. Period! This fact is no longer scary to me, as it was back then. On the contrary – it’s empowering!

This is what I wrote
when I was a new student:

Master Key Experience, Week 1

This record of my journey will and must be honest. I am done pretending to be what I am not, done pretending to be happy and/or excited when I’m not. If I am to chip off all those layers of cement that hides the gold underneath, I must be honest and not pretend that I have chipped off more than I actually have …

So far? About 2 grams worth of cement. Hey, it’s a start!

I am certain that it is indeed possible to get it all off. Gram by gram, till tons of cement have been turned into dust. [Edit: What is the cement I’m referring to? Check out the video in this post]

I am optimistic. I have done my homework every day, and I have particularly enjoyed reading Scroll 1 in The Greatest Salesman in the World. As for Haanel’s Master Key System, Part One … there are things I don’t understand how can be, things I do not believe (yet?), but I do read it every day and I am open-minded (I think!). It will all make sense later. Right?

It all feels a bit overwhelming right now; repeatedly reading in a foreign language (I am Norwegian, btw). I have an OK grasp of the English language, but – and I believe this is an important but – working with my own mind in a language that is not my own feels … superficial, I s’pose. Language is such an important part of our identity, and when I communicate in English I really don’t FEEL the words. Having said that, I guess I just have to trust that the words will find a path on their own into my heart, into my core and – yay – into my subconsciousness!

I sent in the 1st draft of my DMP the other day and got a revision back, one which I found most interesting and I trust my guide’s inputs on how to improve my DMP.

I AM grateful to be on this journey. I truly am! I just struggle with a few things, that’s all …

That’s it for now. Thank you for your time.

Keep up the good work, all you golden nuggets out there! ♥

Optimistically yours,
Bibi

——————————————————


Fast forward to today: Now that I’m a guide at the Master Key Experience, it means that the first week is very different for me than when I was a student – but this is what they have in common: It’s exciting! Receiving the first draft of the new members’ DMP (Definite Major Purpose) and thereby getting a glimpse into their dreams and goals has been wonderful. I take their DMPs very seriously and do my very best to guide them along in the process. Writing a really good DMP might take weeks, even months. During my first year, I refined my own more times than I can even remember – and in the process, I found more gold inside myself, under all that cement! This process cannot be rushed. Give it time …. Give yourself time.

The first week for guides is also busy with a lot of work, and it can feel overwhelming at times. The main difference is what I DO when I’m feeling overwhelmed. The old me would try to escape by watching TV for a few hours. The present me takes a long “SIT” – my place in silence where I relax on a deeper level than ever before. A relaxed mind is crucial and I must take care of my own needs before I can be of any help to others. A relaxed, calm state of mind is the only doorway to progress mentally.

My #1 advice to new students: Relax and trust the process …

I promise to follow my own advice.

Many of our new members have posted their very first blog posts this week!

W1 A – Reblogging: Resistance

Hey, Master Key Experience friends! Check out this fantastic blog post by one of our new members. Stacy had some resistance before joining the course but asked herself, “If not, when?” – such a timely question!

She writes:


“This is the beginning of a journey. My journey. It started with a LOT of resistance.

A very good friend of mine took a class a year ago and had told me about it, but I had no interest in it for myself. She shared a few things about it over the course of the year, and she was extremely excited about it. I watched and enjoyed her excitement, but it still wasn’t for me. I also watched her transform and blossom. I still wasn’t convinced.

A new session of the class was about to begin, and my friend wanted me to consider signing up. My first reaction was still “Nah, it’s not for me”. I had no intention of taking the course. But, it was always in the back of my mind. “What if?” What if I could finally figure out what I wanted to do with my life? What if I finally find that thing I feel like I’m missing to finally figure out the meaning of life? What if my life could be better than it’s ever been?

After struggling with all those What If thoughts for a few weeks, I decided to go for it. I did the initial sign up, but had to fill out an application. There were all kinds of things in that application that caused me to hit the brakes hard. I was okay with most of it, but there were a couple things on that application that made me say “Oh, hell no!”. This blog was one of them. As you can see, I got over that hurdle also. It didn’t come easy or quickly. That question, “What If?” was still there, and it’s what pushed me forward. I had one more hurdle, another “hell no” from me, and after another struggle, it came down to this: If not now, when? I’m 55 years old. I have no idea what I want to do with my life. I work for an amazing company, but it doesn’t feel like the right fit. I feel like there is something else I was meant to do. I just don’t know what it is. How long am I going to wait to figure it out? I’m not getting any younger. Time’s running out. If not now, when? How much more time am I going to waste?

The first class of the Master Key Experience starts tomorrow. After about 10 days of putting in my application, there is no longer any resistance. I can’t expect things to change if I keep doing the same thing. I can’t move forward if I stay where I am. It’s time to take a chance and move forward. I’m excited about the possibilities. Maybe I will find my true purpose on this earth, maybe it will be associated with my hobby, maybe it will be working with teens, or maybe I will learn something that will show me I really do fit in the job I have now. Who knows, but I’m excited to find out.”
