MKE – Week 12 – Affirmations

Affirmations

If you told me 3 months ago I would be using affirmations I would not have believed you. Now if you tell me that in 12 months time I will have stopped using affirmations I will not believe you.

Mark very cleverly started us off weeks ago with a simple ‘Do it now’ affirmation then progressed to ‘I can be what I will to be’. These we have been repeating daily and finding them creeping into our daily routines. Often when a negative situation is developing they are useful as the Law of Substitution keeps us sane and on track. It is impossible to indulge in self pity when you are repeating ‘I can be what I will to be’ in your head, who would ever will to be pitiful or sad?

A 50 Minute Affirmation Marathon

This week Mark hit the course attendees with a 50 minute affirmation marathon in front of a mirror. No warnings he just came out with it on a live webinar used the ‘Do it now’ affirmation a couple of times and said see you in 50 minutes. Back in September 2015 I would have said he was nuts but now understanding the 7 laws of the mind I know it’s a good idea so I did it again. Maybe you think I’m nuts while reading this, I can understand your thinking but trust me this stuff works.

The 50 minute affirmation was a short sentence encompassing our DMP’s (Definite Major Purpose). We prepared this short DMP last week and knew it would form part of the webinar. It’s great having a DMP but for it to work you need to feel it to your core and live in it as often as you can by attaching thoughts and feelings to it. Meditations, reading it and affirming it are all helping this to work. Repeating this sentence for 50 minutes was a challenge to start but so worth the effort. It started feeling odd then progressed to being more fun. This allowed me to change the tone and energy of it a few times and this felt quite emotional at times as my DMP is going to be a fantastic life for my family and I to live in.

Thank you Mark and the MKMMA team for guiding us without influencing. The self discovery is fantastic and giving this whole course meaning. It’s no surprise that many successful people from decades ago rate this book so highly, it truly has the power to change a life for the better.

MKE – Week 9 – Substitution

We have been using substitution with great effect for some time now. It is not possible to hold both good and bad thoughts in mind at the same time. This gives us the option to see a bad thought or opinion coming and substitute it with a positive.

From Part Nine of The Master Key it is said;

  • Character is not a thing of chance, but it is the result of continued effort. If you are timid, vacillating, self-conscious, or if you are over-anxious or harassed by thoughts of fear or impending danger, remember that is axiomatic that ‘two things cannot exist in the same place at the same time.’
Taking control of our thoughts will allow us to control our character and this is where we can grow in whatever way we require. Knowing that we are in control is a good start but seeing the new thoughts making a new you is even better. Further on in Part Nine it is said;
  • The positive thought will destroy the negative as certainly as light destroys darkness, and the results will be just as effectual.
We have been working on a 7 day mental diet as part of our course within the MKMMA. This is something that anyone can do and it really helps you keep your thoughts in check and become an observer. I can send a link to the 7 Day Diet to anyone who requests it in the comments. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to feel the benefits of challenging our positivity.
One quick note on embarking on a course of substituting thoughts, the payoff is great so it seems reasonable that the effort required will also be great. This is predominantly in the early stages and as time goes on it does become easier and more natural. A good start is to limit the rubbish being thrown at you by those who are addicted to bad news. This will mean shutting down a lot of Facebook and definitely not watching the news on TV or reading the papers. Become the observer and recognise why these sources feed on the negative addictions then you can put them to one side. Definitely don’t get involved in sharing posts which propagate hate, fear and political propaganda otherwise you are part of the problem not the solution.
