Week 17 HJ – Hero’s Journey

imageThe Journey continues…what journey? The Hero’s Journey. This is a picture of a summary of Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth. You can’t read the words unless you zoom in. You can google it and read the words, but i might just summarize it as it applies to me.

It really encourages me to know you are reading this. I write to you. Last week I was really sick. And I was still able to persist with the group and work.  This week my virtual was “courage”. I made sure that my affirmation card “I am WHOLE ! PERFECT! STRONG! POWERFUL! LOVING! HARMONIOUS! And HAPPY!!!” Was repeated in my pile of cards.

This pictures was share with me earlier last week. Visuals are really becoming part of my mind. Becoming very comfortable in my being.

I am definitely on my own Hero’s Journey.  My memory bring me to the bible event of Jonah and the whale, which is an excellent example of transformation with resistance. Through this MKMMA program, I definitely can identify my life as is. Asking the question “there must be more than this?”. Which is the reason why I made a commitment to this 30 week program.  We wrote DMPs…definite main purpose statement for ourselves.. I really dove deep inside me to realize I needed to define me.

Julia in Montana, is a radiant, confident woman of indestructible faith, highly honored and respected, helpful to others, and in-service through her writings and talks…. This is a one sentence of my DMP. There is a longer 300 word DMP.

MKMMA realizes and is very conscious of not influencing me on my journey.  They know that there will be some resistance. ENCOURAGEMENT was a huge benefit I received from fellow alliance members, through the online alliance porthole, Facebook posts, tweets, phone calls, tribal calls and even blog comments.

Thank you again for reading my blog and following me. 17 weeks is a long time, but I can see the progression and learning curve…we are all moving at our own pace.

I am at the point of facing my fears. I am equipped and prepared for this stage.  I am on the Mental Diet. I keep the 7 Laws on the Mind on my cards.

One of the encouraging notes I got from my guide was “I am water moving a mountain”. It humbled me knowing that it will take time and not happen over night, over a week…. It will happen when it happens.

(sorry, not ready to share my fear yet, but I assure you I am facing it.) I know that my growth and experience will be beneficial when I am a guide for MKMMA and Go90Grow.

Thank you for reading, Julia.

Here are the Seven Laws of the Mind, the practice of which is a great way to develop specialized knowledge. This list was given to us. I forgot who penned this list originally, so I’ll give the credit to the program. I didn’t write this up myself.

LAW OF SUBSTITUTION

We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind – try to think about Source/Universe/Higher Power/God instead.  If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought. The Master Teacher, said, “Resist not evil” – meaning don’t resist it but instead turn from it and think about something else instead.

LAW OF RELAXATION

Mental effort defeats itself – exactly the opposite of physical effort. A relaxed, calm state of mind, is the only doorway to progress mentally. Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence. (This is why our SIT is so important).

LAW OF PRACTICE

Practice makes perfect. The 5Ps – Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance. Our bewilderment of magnificence in others, upon further inspection you’ll find most of it is practice, the rest of it is work. With practice of the correct things, we improve – on the other 6 Laws of the mind.

LAW OF FORGIVENESS

To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.

LAW OF DUAL THOUGHT

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

LAW OF SUBCONSCIOUS

As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand – accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

LAW OF GROWTH

Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

…….770 words…the most I’ve written, however the 7 Laws did take up some of the count.

Week 17… Subby works 24-7

I just posted on my blog page another Alliance member’s blog. I liked it that  I wanted to share it. I do realize this was all taught to us via Digital Connections, but applying it for me is the difficult part.

Welcome, hello….I am so glad you are here reading my post. I greatly appreciate the comments of encouragement and also helpful tidbits and ideas. The beginning of the course, I wrote to myself, and maybe to whoever reads.  But I never knew. No one wrote comments. But then I didn’t know how to review my comments in the back area. Week 17, and we are being more aligned. With the massive energy generated with our Week of Kindness…it certainly helped me focus and channel my learning curve, and apply. Do It Now.

Then it hit me…fever and chills and headache and everything. YUCK. Just after Sunday mass, I was able to post my kindness observed before the webinar. How exciting it was to participate and “blow Mark away” by passing his given expectations. (Next year will grow exponentially). I realized the momentum that was generated working together for one single purpose. I can apply this to myself, and my family, and others around me.

But this week, I have to be grateful to my fellow Alliance members who reached out to me. They didn’t know I was sick in bed and very weak. They didn’t know my circumstances, but they were able to help me and I in return helped them. I was unable to be present on the webinar. Yet, I got connected and on Wednesday, my guide had a phone call which I missed too…but through Facebook, she updated me and our group worked together, atleast for my own benefit, I got many “get well” wishes. Being sick for me is stuck in bed and sleeping as if  I never had to get up. Getting up hurts every bone and muscle in my body. Having only liquids because foods made my stomach ache with dissatisfaction.

Sooooo…my subby went to work. I dreamed my cards, I dreamed my vision board, My figures floated around…circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles.  Colors of red, blue, green and yellow..danced around the place.  The gal in the glass smiled at me. My cards spread over the whole room then floated to the ceiling. Music was in the background, I couldn’t tell what it was but it was comforting. I heard my voice reading Og Mandino’s scrolls to me.

Reality wakes me up… I am tired. My body is hotter than ever. How long will this last? I get up to prepare dinner, as that is the motherly thing to do. My son is feeling sick too, he spikes a temperature. Good ol’ ginger chicken soup with rice…does the soothing trick. I have no sense of time.

One alliance member read to me our sit for the week. Concentrate on my object until it is identified. “Concentrate on an ideal as an already existing fact”… I am still reading the words of Haanel as words. Not all 17 chapters hit me like a brick wall the week I read them..except for now..sick and weak sleeping is mostly what my week has been… Chapter 7. Visualization was in my thoughts.  7-62 “by holding the image or picture in mind, we can gradually but surely bring the thing nearer to us. We can be what we will to be”… Interesting. My lack of confidence of my progress had to be forced upon by being sick in bed lethargic, with only the bed, sink, toilet and shower as my comfort. It sunk in…the subby got it. I believe I have created a good habit. Downside is that I can not recite, but that is next.

Day 5 of this sicko… I am focusing on health for sure.

Week 16…. Faith and Trust and Gratitude

Thank you for reading my blog. I am very grateful for the commitment everyone is taking for their personal journey.  I am grateful that you took the time to spend with me and my thoughts.  My reflection for tonight is…”To pursue the heart of God and bring blessings to others.”

16 Weeks ago I participated in MKMMA on total blind faith.  I was exposed to Go90Grow, and took the opportunity to further my experience with MKMMA. I did not watch the 3 promoting videos. I just knew it was good for me and my business.  Mark J kept telling us to have Faith and to Trust the process.  Little did I know that my desire was to truly reveal the Golden Buddha within me. I thought it was to “make gold..money”  YES. I am finding gold. The gold in me. I followed and did the assignments.

This week’s assignment on Kindness was a magnet to many experiences. Sharing our experiences and actions in the Alliance stirred more frequent visits to the Alliance area, and I enjoyed reading the many comments. It does generate an energy of positive actions.  My environment and surroundings needs more Kindness.  I realize it can begin with me, and it can multiply and radiate.  An old piece of cement was found and disgarded. When good is happening around me, bad enters in.  This has happened many times to me, but with my new found habits, I have been able to recognize the bad and take control of the situation before it got out of hand.  I am grateful for the Alliance for within the Alliance I was able for find support and comfort when I had difficulty.  Dream Stealers are difficult to be around, but with Og Mandino’s Scroll IV… “I place my uniqueness on display in the marketplace” and I no longer will let them change me to conform.

Words of encouragement was “I am water eroding the mountain”. It is amazing how much the momentum of the class has created such an impact in my life.

I still hesitate in writing, but I will write. I will share with you.

I spent more time on twitter. I am liking to write small clips, but usually I share a slippit of wisdom.

Week 15…. The Scroll Marked IV

It is a new month and I have started reading the next scroll.
I am nature’s greatest miracle. This is how it begins.I am a unique creature of nature. I am rare, and there is value in all rarity: therefore, I am valuable….
I will concentrate my energy on the challenge of the moment.
..

Reading this scroll 3 times a day challenges me to take action and DO IT NOW.
I am an excellent writer. I am courageous. I am taking the initiative to take action.

(Still writing in short sentence form)

I am getting encouragement from the alliance. Write as in answering a question. The question is… what is your reflection on Og Mandino’s Scroll IV?

My answer is that it is making me think. Reading it 3 times a day and concluding by reading it aloud… I am not taking it lightly… the subby is hearing the words. Is this resistence or is it affirmation? I’ve rewritten them onto my cards are gratitudes.  I am very grateful. I don’t give myself credit, and through these steps I have been given permission to acknowledge my accomplishments.

I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunies in disguise.

There is so much truth to the first video we were shown…the Golden Buddha… I am grateful that my progression is at my pace. I fear writing words from what we are learning. I’ve written about this before. I am grateful for MKMMA using “Hero’s Journey” because it really is a journey. A path that we all are on, yet we travel on our own BUT not ALONE.

I close my evening with reading “The Girl in the Glass”… and I refuse to cheat. So the question is…what movie did you watch and what did you think? My answer is…RUDY. I watched Rudy alone because my family did not want to watch it. I meet Rudy Ruettiger many years ago. He was the guest speaker. He’s story told by him is totally inspirational, he spoke with such compassion, and enthusiasm. His story is amazing. He had his dream, and he made the decision to fulfill his dream to play football for Notre Dame. It was brought to his attention that he got alot more than just playing football, he got a good education, he worked hard… this is what stuck out for me. He took the steps he needed to get to his dream, but he could not have done it alone, there was someone along the path that helped him. He gained the respect of everyone he worked with. He gave 100%. He knew his weakness and he was able to overcome them, with help. 1. a place to sleep 2. a job to earn money 3. a tutor that help recognize how best to learn 4. team players who respected his position 5. School spirit/ student body.. that knew who he was his senior year.

Question…Are you following the Alliance? Answer…Yes, I have read many blogs and am grateful for those who share blogs for others to read. Sharing blogs is definitely beneficial for me, I learn different writing styles. My style is still under cement. I am unique, and I write to encourage others to find the Buddha within themselves. I write to grow.

(This was a struggle… 2 hours. What did I do?… I wrote, and I hit the backspace key many times. I suppose I need to choose the audience who is reading my blog. For now, it is for me, and for those who are following my journey…Thanks for reading.)
