This is my second time through the MKE (Master Key Experience). There is so much information that has been covered so far, but for me, the whole point of this experience is to grasp the concept that thought is the cause and circumstances are the effect. When this idea is coupled with the fact that 90% of our actions are determined by our subconscious mind, it is just fascinating to me. Think about it. 90% of our actions and decisions are pre-programmed by our subconscious mind. So who is doing the programming? The thing is, we have total control over what we allow to go in to our mind and what we choose to believe about ourselves. If you’re reading this and already a part of the MKE, you have probably already done this, but if you’re not then I have a challenge for you. Observe your thoughts, and what you say. What are you believing about yourself, and what are you speaking over yourself for that matter? “I am so sick and tired of….?” Yep, you most certainly are. “I can’t….I’m not good at…..” It seems to me as I talk with people, that everyone has their own set of struggles, but they feel like the struggles are happening to them, and when are they going to get a breakthrough?
I have been in that position myself. Now I know the truth, that what I think about expands, so what am I thinking about? What am I focusing on? JOY. I spent the better part of 3 years of my life suffering from severe depression and anxiety. I know now, that I was laser focused on everything that was wrong. Now I am reawakened to the truth, that ultimately I have all the power within me to change my current circumstances, just by what I am thinking. Joy is the opposite of despair, so joy is what I want to attract and expand in my life. Every morning, I play a song by For King and Country called…you got it…JOY. https://youtu.be/E-r7ogDaaEQ
“I choose Joy. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of night. Oh with you by my side, I’m stepping into the Light.”
Isn’t it empowering that we can program ourselves to be who we want to be by the power of our own thinking?!? So, the first line of my purpose statement is this: “I awake each morning energized, joyful, and full of life.”
In this past week, I have had two encounters with women that are suffering from depression and deep sadness. I feel so blessed that I was given the opportunity to share some of this truth with each of them, that I know will have a positive lasting effect on their lives going forward. I believe these encounters were both manifestations of another one of my purpose statements. “The light of Jesus shines through me and I have a positive effect on every person I encounter.”
