Week 9 Thanksgiving – Gratitude


We just celebrated a National holiday – THANKSGIVING! What does that mean to you? To me it means being Thankful every day for all that we have, not just the day set aside to gather with family and have a big meal.

I have soooooooooooo much to be thankful for that it would take so many pages to name them all. I’ll just name a few right now – freedom to worship Jesus Christ, as my Lord & Savior and the Grace He graciously gives to me , my Supportive Eli ( my husband), my children, grandchildren (8) and my great granddaughter who was born 2 days before Thanksgiving and slept through dinner. What blessings to be thankful for.

Mark J put out a challenge to all of us about Gratitude during the week where we are to list 3 different things we are grateful for during the next 90 days with no repeats. I accepted the challenge and started a journal listing them. What an experience. One high on my list is the Master Key Mastermind Alliance has opened my mind, my heart and eyes to things I had not thought about, felt or seen.

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” William Arthur Ward

Master Key 9: 27. Man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the question is, how are we to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones? At first we can’t keep the evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from entertaining them. The only way to do this is to forget them – which means, get something for them. This is where the ready-made affirmation comes into play. “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy”

What a week! Blessings to all my Mastermind Family on your continued journey.

Week 10 – Master Key Experience

Week 10 – Master Key Experience

This post is almost too late since we are in Week 11, but as the saying goes, “Better late than never”. I fell off the wagon last week when it came to following through with the exercises. I had out of town guests and was preparing house and food for my family’s Christmas get together.

Each year since our mother passed, my brothers and sisters (5 out of 9 left) and our families get together to celebrate Christmas and I was the host this year. We had a great time sharing food, memories and gifts with love. There were 47 in attendance and everyone had a great time.

Things have settled down for me and I am happy to say I’m back active again with my exercises, readings, and sits.

Since starting the MKMMA journey, it’s obvious that I have grown a lot but feel there are some hurdles I still need to overcome. I am praying that all the exercises we are doing will manifest into some changes I have been seeking and am frustrated with my inability to make happen.

In reading the Master Key a few times this past week this section caught my attention: 10-11. The law is that Thought is an active vital form of dynamic energy which has the power to correlate with its object and bring it out of the invisible substance from which all things are created into the visible or objective world. This is the law by which, and through which all things come into manifestation; it is the Master Key by which you are admitted into the Secret Place of the Most High and are ”given dominion over all things.” With an understanding of this law you may “decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee.”

We must continue to study and observe the Law and function in harmony with the law.

Week 8 – The Seven Day Mental Diet

The weight loss diets I never stuck with very long because of the various foods and preparation were more of a hassle than help. Plus I didn’t like fixing 2 meals at each meal time because my husband wouldn’t eat the diet food.

The diet I’m talking about today is the Seven Day Mental Diet that I started as part of the MKMMA. It is one that is more challenging than anything I’ve tried. It is one where we are to control our thoughts and not allow any negative mental thoughts come into our head. Emmett Fox, in his great work, the Seven Day Mental Diet, indicates that we must not dwell on any negative thought, and if we do, we must restart the diet in a few days. A negative thought is any thought of failure, disappointment, or trouble; any thought of criticism, or spite, or jealousy, or condemnation of others, or self-condemnation; any thought of sickness or accident; or, in short, any kind of limitation or pessimistic thinking. Wow! No wonder it will take an abundance of prayer, training and practice, practice and more practice.

We must train ourselves in the habit of thought selection and thought control to carry us through when we are preoccupied or off our guard as well as when we are attending to business. Negative thoughts drift into our minds of their own accord all day long but do not matter as long as we do not entertain them.

When we master the Seven Day Mental Diet, we have changed our mind and our conditions have changed also. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds.

I am looking forward to this change. “I can be what I will to be”.


The Master Key

As I read this week’s Master Key, I realized that I have not been doing the necessary steps in manifesting my dream of the past few years.

Work is necessary – labor, hard mental labor, the kind of effort which so few are willing to put forth.

I did the first step – Idealization, the most important step, because it is the plan on which you are going to build. You are to picture in your mind what you want; you are sowing the seed.

7- 7. Then comes the process of Visualization. You must see the picture more and more complete, see the detail, and, as the details begin to unfold the ways and means for bringing it into manifestation will develop. One thing will lead to another. Thought will lead to action, action will develop methods, methods will develop friends, and friends will bring about circumstances, and, finally, the third step, or Materialization, will have been accomplished.

I now see in just seven weeks of the MKMMA course, that I didn’t have the correct thoughts to take the action to develop methods to materialize my dream and am in the process of doing the correct things. I was trying to build it from the world without rather than the world within.

7-13. Clearness and accuracy are obtained only by repeatedly having the image in mind. Each repeated action renders the image more clear and accurate than the preceding, and in proportion to the clearness and accuracy of the image will the outward manifestation be. You must build it firmly and securely in your mental world within, before it can take form in the world without, and you can build nothing of value, even in the mental world unless you have the proper material. When you have the material you can build anything you wish, but make sure of your material.

I see the MKMMA as the proper material I am using- The Master Key, Og Mandino’s principles, my DMP and the exercises that we are doing. “I can be what I will to be.”

MKMMA – WEEK 6 The Master Key and Love Schroll

Week 6 has passed and I have learned so much in such a short time about our mind that I never gave a thought about.  Each week we have been given new exercises and readings to help us change from “within” on our journey of the Master Key Mastermind Alliance.

The Master Key is teaching us about the greatest piece of mechanism which has ever come into existence, the brain of man. “ A mechanism whereby you may create for yourself Health, Strength, Success, Prosperity or any other condition which you desire.“  Charles Haanel. Each week as we read the Master Key daily, we have an exercise of sitting quietly for 15-30 minutes to help us practice the learning of how to focus and control our mind so that we can program our subconscious minds with conscious thoughts.

6-19. Attention or concentration is probably; the most important essential in the development of mind culture.  The possibilities of attention when properly directed are so startling that they would hardly appear credible to the uninitiated.  The cultivation of attention is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful man or woman, and is the very highest personal accomplishment which can be acquired.  Charles Haanel

6-26 It is by such exercises  as the ones above that you will finally be able to control your mental moods, your attitudes, your consciousness.  Charles Haanel

We also started reading Scroll II in “The Greatest Salesman in the World” which is on Love.  “I will greet this day with love in my heart”.  What a statement to start the day with that can help us have a joyful day.  Can you imagine what our world would be like if EVERYONE started their day with this statement and repeat throughout the day?  This scroll reminds us of all the things LOVE will do for us.  We just need to practice, practice and practice every day  saying  “I love you” silently until  we have our subconscious mind programmed with love and it flows naturally like the wind blows.

1 Corinthians 13 is all about love…Love is patient, Love is kind, Love never fails.  If we do not have Love, we have nothing.  God is Love.  We love because He first loved us.

I seen the connection between the Master Key and Scroll II this week. This week with the increase in our focus we were preparing the soil for the planting of the seed next week.  I look forward with eagerness to engage in the next steps necessary to accomplish my new self.

I always keep my promises.

Blessings to all!


Well I learned a lesson this week. Always save your Blog in word before posting on your Masterkey website. I wrote my blog yesterday, pasted to my wordpress site, hit publish immediately, seen the message it had posted and clicked on view message which I did and then it vanished. I tried finding it later in evening and can’t find it even today.  My internet Microsoft keeps giving me the message that my website can’t be found.   So here I am writing another blog.

My “sits” have been hard this week. I have thought of everything except what I was supposed to meditate on with the exception of one night I after a successful “sit”, I dreamt walking on stage as I wrote about in my Press Release.  I did that wrong also.   I wrote it in story form rather than interview style so I am editing it.

A “thank you to Jesus” and my commitment to MKMMA,  I have been doing other assignments and keeping up with them.

I look forward to reading the next scroll for 30 days as I did with the first one and continuing with my new habit that will bring me happiness and success  “Good habits are the key to all success ” as stated by Og

I see the importance of all the assignments we have been doing and how they are all wired together  Our new assignment of repeating “I CAN BE WHAT I WILL TO BE” really connected to the Blue Print Builder for me and find it very easy to repeat many times a day.

The NO  OPINION assignment this week was hard for me when I talked with my daughter as she is always doing/saying things that upset me, and I then express my opinion.  This is a big area I need patience and work on.

Five weeks have gone by already and I am  eagerly looking forward to the next 21 to see the new me.  I have done things out of my comfort zone which have helped me very much needed I look forward to new things that will stretch me more.  I have noticed changes in me and have had comments from others about changes they can see.

Until next week,  “I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES”.

WEEK 4 – Master Key Mastermind Alliance

WEEK 4 – Master Keys Mastermind Alliance Experience

This week’s reading of the Master Key was an “eye opener” for me.

4-4. When you say “I think” the “I” tells the mind what it shall think; when you say “I go” the “I” tells the physical body where it shall go; the real nature of this “I” is spiritual, and is the source of the real power which comes to men and women when they come into a realization of their true nature.

4-5. The greatest and most marvelous power which this “I” has been given is the power to think, but few people know how to think constructively, or correctly, consequently they achieve only indifferent results.  Most people allow their thoughts to dwell on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind.  When a mind becomes mature, it understands that the germ of defeat is in every selfish thought.

 Thus, I will make use of one of the strongest affirmations which I can use for the purpose of strengthening the will and realizing my power to accomplish – “ I can be what I will to be.”

I promise to make use of this affirmation continuously until it becomes a part of me; a good habit.

 4-14.  But when you have learned to control yourself you will have found the ”World Within” which controls the world without; you will have become irresistible; men and things will respond to your every wish without any apparent effort on your part.

4-15 This is not so strange or impossible as it may appear when you remember that the “World Within” is controlled by the “I” and that this “I” is a part or one with the Infinite “I” which is the Universal Energy or Spirit, usually called God. WOW!

I have watched all of the MKMMA replays this week which helped to focus more on the exercises which are part of the ground work for building the foundation upon which I am building my new life.

I promise to continue with this journey and give it 100% .

I always keep my promises. Lois
