“Responsibility” MKMMA Wk 24

cropped-bridge-family-photo.jpg

It is somewhat surreal to be sitting her writing my last blog post for this MKE course. If I had to choose one word to describe what I have taken away from this experience over the past 6 months, it would be “Responsibility.” What I mean by this is that I have a full awareness and understanding that I am 100% responsible for the state of my current existence and I also have the ability to change my circumstances by changing my thought life. It the creative power of thought supercedes physical manifestation, then it stands to reason that each and every one of us is ultimately responsible for our reality, since we are the only one that can choose what we are going to think about.

I have also learned the universal law that what we think about expands. If I think about the things I used to be afraid of, like not having enough money, or the debt that needs to be paid, unfortunately I am just attracting more circumstances that make my thoughts become reality. To eliminate the fear of lack, I need to cultivate thoughts of abundance.

Love is the greatest law. By simply having the mindset, “I will greet this day with love in my heart,” and silently greeting everyone I encounter with, “I love you,” changes the whole tone of the day. love_heart_hdtv_1080p-wide

I learned how powerful the emotion of gratitude is. During the majority of the course, we set aside a few minutes each day to reflect on three new things to be grateful for every day. Considering the Law of Attraction, by focusing on what we are grateful for, rather than what we are lacking, we set in motion the law of attraction which brings about more to be grateful for.

This next one is really quite mind-blowing; 100% of our decisions are made by our subconscious, which is composed of over 34 billion cells working 24/7 to manifest our beliefs. So, what are we letting into our minds? I have learned to be a diligent “Watchman at the Gate” to protect my mind from toxic material and take care to focus the majority of my thoughts on my goals and dreams, rather than dwelling on undesirable circumstances. I think my favorite revelation in this is that we do not need to focus on how we are going to accomplish something, only the object of our desire. The how will appear, and that is the job of our subconscious, that never sleeps, constantly working to manifest what we program it to do.

I have learned to thoroughly enjoy total solitude and quiet time. I believe there are invention rooms in Heaven, and for those of us that are awake and aware, those ideas will be released to conscious and capable minds that take the time to connect with the Universal Consciousness, or what I believe to be the Mind of Christ.

Most importantly, I have created a Definite Major Purpose. I have discovered so much about who I am and why I am here over the past six months, all while carrying my second baby, which is due to meet us in about two weeks. I have been given such a gift with the wisdom and knowledge I have gleaned from this course that I have the privilege of passing on to my kids from the beginning of their precious little lives. One thing I am sure to do each and every night when I tuck my little one in is after bedtime prayers, I always ask him about his day and what his favorite things was that day. I am teaching him gratitude and shaping his subconscious focus on what he is grateful for each night as he drifts off to sleep. He is only 2 and 1/2 and already in the habit of sharing his favorite part of the day even if I hadn’t gotten around to asking him yet.

I have shared only a small sampling of how this course has impacted my life. I believe the more people who invest their time and effort into this Master Key Experience, the better world we will live in. Please stay tuned for more information on how you can experience this life-changing course for yourself. Thank you to those of you who have supported and encouraged me through this journey. We will always have a special connection.

“Living With a DMP.” MKMMA Wk 23

purpose

It’s pretty awesome that we were able to have a little escape to Colorado last week and I accomplished just as much in my business on vacation as a typical week at home. When you are living from a Definite Major Purpose, I believe that you automatically attract people who need what you have to offer, particularly when your focus is just on how you can be of service to others.

My son Brandt made a new friend with a little girl who happened to be the daughter of the spa manager where we were staying. We wound up connecting and discussing her financial and wellness goals, exchanged information, and are now in communication about how we can work together to help her reach her goals.

There was another couple that were soaking in the same pool that we were and I noticed she had a European accent. I was just being friendly and asked where she was from. She said Germany, which is really cool, because my Dad’s whole ancestry is based in Germany. We enjoyed a very interesting conversation about politics, food sources, GMOs, and spirituality and surprisingly we are in agreement on all of those sensitive topics. We also exchanged information and she is now a customer of mine as well. Her name is Gabriele. Her and her husband live on five acres in Lake George, CO. They come to the hot springs once a week, and we just happened to cross paths in a brief 20 minute window that will likely grow into a unique friendship.

 

purpose quoteBefore creating a DMP statement, life had meaning, but was not much more than a series of random events and encounters. Now, I see from the place of the observer and I understand that I am creating my reality each and every day. I believe that the people I encounter are there to teach me something or to learn something from me. I feel so blessed to be one of the few that have gained the wisdom and knowledge the MKE course has provided. I want to thank Mark for answering the call of his true purpose and Davene for coming along side and pursuing the creation of this course. I am looking forward to collaborating with Davene and her MasterMind Team to awaken more people to their Divine Calling.

“Last Minute Getaway.” MKMMA Wk 22

 

 

My personal pivotal needs are liberty and true health, so it was quite a blessing, like I stated in last weeks post, to discover what was making me so sick was a simple and controllable adjustment. The inflammation that was causing so much pain in my back was about 30% better within 48 hours. One of the first things that occurred to me as I started feeling better is that we hadn’t yet planned a little getaway before the new baby arrives. I had been in such a fog, I didn’t realize how quickly my travel window was closing in.

Fast and furious, we called on a travel agent that was referred to me by a good friend. I really wanted to get away to some sun and sandy beaches after being cooped up in the frozen Minnesota tundra for the long, gray winter, but quickly realized we had missed our window and it was going to cost us $1000/day just for airfare and lodging. Plan B was a quick visit to Castle Rock, CO, the town we had just moved from in June, visit a few good friends and head up to the mountain hot springs for a few days. Since we couldn’t get the warm, tropical air and beach, at least we could still get the Colorado sunshine with cool air and the warm soothing waters of the hot springs.

 

We stayed with our good friends The Varney’s three houses down from our old house on Storm Cloud Way. Sunday we visited our old church and got to reconnect with many of the special people that had played a significant role in shaping our lives during the three years we lived there. I was so overwhelmed with emotion and love. I should have known to wear waterproof mascara that day.

It was so therapeutic and peaceful to drive through the picturesque Rocky Mountains. We arrived at the hot springs spa at about 3:00 in the afternoon, got settled and made our way down to the warm pools. Oh my gosh, there is something so magical about stepping from super cool air into warm, soothing water. And when you are surrounded by snow-capped mountains, it is even better. The next morning my husband Dan brought Brandt down for breakfast. I joined them for a quick breakfast, and decided I would take a morning soak in the hot springs while they finished up. I had the warm pool to myself. It was so cold, but the sun was shining and it was so quiet. I looked up the mountain side to see a family of deer frolicking down the mountain together. In that moment, I had such a feeling of total well-being and freedom. We had an amazing time and came back rejuvenated and reconnected, ready to start this next exciting chapter as a family of four!

“Divine Appointment.” MKMMA Wk 21

I was so thankful to have recently discovered that the extreme pain I was experiencing in my back , along with the ongoing nausea and fatigue was all linked to a pregnancy induced lactose sensitivity. Hallelujah! With roughly 6 weeks to go before delivery and a constant pain level of a 9 or a 10, I was really nervous about how I was going to manage, so when I found out milk sugars were to blame for how lousy I was feeling it was such a huge sense of relief that I could make such a simple adjustment. Within 48 hours I could tell the inflammation was down. Now, two weeks later, I feel like a new person. It was all in the same time frame that I became aware of how much genetically modified wheat and produce I had been consuming too and the noticeable correlation between the inflammation in my back and the consumption of non-organic wheat. organic-vs-crap-food

I was about ready to purchase a 4′ x 4′ garden tower, so I could start growing all of my own fresh produce without breaking the bank, and hoping to condense that amount of time I would need to spend in the grocery store with a newborn and a 2 1/2 year old. So, I was out running errands and needed to stop in the grocery store for some apples and spinach. I searched all over without finding the organic spinach. I asked the cashier, who offered to go find it for me and naturally wound up in a conversation about the difference between organic spinach and spinach that had been sprayed with pesticides. They remarked about the noticeable difference between the two. The man behind me in line joined the conversation and remarked about how grocery stores in general weren’t doing very well to support locally grown organic produce. It turns out, his daughter is an organic farmer and her farm is located within 10 miles of my house!

He walked me down to his jewelry store down the way and got me her card. I have an appointment to meet her and discuss ideas about creating more awareness about the importance of eating locally grown food. I can purchase 19 weeks worth of fresh organic local produce picked from the ground the same day for only $350! Divine appointments are so inspiring! I was in exactly the right place at the right time, which just confirms I am walking in my Definite Major Purpose of Liberty and True Health! And I feel better now at almost 37 weeks pregnant than I have for the past 8 1/2 months!

“Give More, Get More.” MKMMA Wk 20

give

“Give more, get more” is a phrase that we have probably heard hundreds of times over the past six months. It is one of the main themes of this MKMMA course. Today was one of those days I didn’t have much to give. I was tired after a long day of travel, the laundry and dishes were piled up, and it looked like a tornado of toys had blown through my house. My little boy also had gotten crazy with the markers and had carried his artistic talent all over the hard wood floors as well as his face, arms, and legs. For any of you stay at home mom’s out there, you know “those days” where nap time can’t come soon enough. It never did come today, but thanks to my awesome neighbors, I got a one hour break while my little guy got to play with their cat and bunny next door while I got my follow-up done.

In my last post I talked about GMO’s and how strongly I feel that it is unethical to package foods to appear healthy, while they contain many potentially harmful ingredients and toxins. One thing I have noticed over the past few weeks, is that I am finding myself in these conversations with people just sharing the truth and giving the awareness to others that I have recently acquired myself. Most of the time, people are so appreciative that someone would take the time to share the truth with them.

We will soon be developing a list to expose the opportunity of the Master Key Experience to our contacts. I am really looking forward to sharing something that has been so valuable to my personal growth and development, but also to create a platform where I can share the truth and information that I come across that can educate people and bring awareness to these important topics that can affect our well-being. I haven’t been able to give all that much so far, but the intention is still there.

This is where the day took an amazing positive turn…I finally mustered up the energy to load up my little guy and head to the grocery store at 4:30 this afternoon. I thought I was only going to pick up a few essentials for my daily juicing, but ended up with a cart full of all organic groceries and a gift for the hostess of my baby shower. I sent my son over to ride the horse. As I was unloading my cart, he came over crying, because the horse wasn’t there. It looked like the manager standing next to me in line and I asked him where the horse went. He told me it was in for repairs, as I reached for the sucker and sticker jars to soothe my disappointed toddler. At the same time, he proceeded to tell me giving-quote-churchillhe noticed all of my organic choices and had chosen me to be the recipient of free groceries today courtesy of Coborn’s Grocery Store in Delano. $127 worth of free totally organic groceries. Wow! I feel so blessed to be sharing this story as I relax and reflect this evening before enjoying my baby shower in the morning. It is so much fun to be “in the flow of giving and receiving.”

“Awareness.” MKMMA Week 19

 

GMO produce

Awareness is such a powerful thing. Ovet the past several weeks I have learned more about the food industry than I ever wanted to know. Ignorance can be bliss, but in this case, I am so grateful to have learned what I now know. Coming from 10 years in the weight loss and wellness industry, I was absolutely stunned at some of the things I have recently been made aware of.

I was just recently certified in a new weight loss bootcamp program, so naturally I was really excited about it and it came up in a casual conversation with the dad of a little boy that befriended my little boy at a play center near my home. I was just explaining how sophisticated and eye-opening the information was I was learning. Then he asked me a brilliant question,” What do you think the one thing is that people are doing with thier diet that, where they think they are doing something right, but it’s hurting them.” I really had to stop and think about that for a few minutes, but then the answer was crystal clear. GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisims). I never realized that approximately 75% of the produce found in main stream grocery stores is sourced from commercial farms that grow GMO crops.

I just think the idea that someone is trying to be budget conscious and purchase fresh produce in an attempt to feed their family a healthy diet, when they are likely getting a product that “looks” healthy, but is contaminated with toxic pesticide residues, devoid of much of the nutrient content it should have, and highly likely to contribute to genetic mutations at the cellular level is horrific. I personally believe this level of deception is on par with the fall of man in the garden of eden. The fact that the USDA, FDA know full well the danger of these foods and protect the producers, because it puts more money in their pocket, while private organic farmers have to jump through hoops to provide wholesome, nutrient rich produce just makes me ill. genetically-modified-foods-gmos-linked-to-intestinal-permeability-allergiesAll I can say is that I am proud to be a part of this growing MKMMA organization, and that a portion of the money I have donated to further this program is going toward fighting this totally corrupt practice.

Are GMOs safe?

Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. In the U.S., the government has approved GMOs based on studies conducted by the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale. Increasingly, Americans are taking matters into their own hands and choosing to opt out of the GMO experiment. [www.nongmoproject.org]GMOFormulaBaby-forweb.jpeg

There is so much more I could say on this topic, but I will save it for another post.

Until next time,

“I Will Persist.” MKMMA Week 18

persistence

Well, here I am, back to my blog site after a very long four weeks of difficult circumstances that have risen up in an attempt to derail me from staying the course. The emotional and physical challenges have been quite intense, but I feel good sitting here writing, like I am climbing out of a deep pit that I fell into. When I look back on this past month, I am so thankful, first of all, that I know I am on the other side of it and I didn’t give up. I have a tendency to be harder on myself than anyone else is. I am sure many of you can relate. I met with my doctor last week and he reassured me that I had every right to be feeling the way I was. Let me paint the picture for you. Couple the stress of a major move from a buzzing city in Colorado where it is sunny 95% of the time to a small country town in Minnesota where it is gray and frigid cold 95% of the time with starting a new business when you are pregnant and the full-time mom of a busy, too smart for his own good toddler, no satisfactory childcare openings, and no gyms within a 20 minute radius that offer childcare for moms. Let me tell you what you get: anger, sadness, anxiety, stress, severe low back pain, guilt, sleeplessness, nausea, despair, frustration to name a few.

I was laying in bed awake one night last week and I came across a video clip by Lisa Bevere: Girls With Swords I choose to believe that I am on the right path and that there is major victory ahead. I believe that the enemy is intimidated about who I am becoming and who I might be.  I am so thankful for the faith I have been able to hold onto through this, the support of my husband and family, and the true friends that have come along side me to lift me up through some tough times.

If you are reading this and going experiencing some of the difficult emotions I have described, be of good cheer. You are on the right track. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Declare that you are a hero and claim your victory.
