MENTOR :: MOTIVATOR :: MOTHER ::
When my daughter was 17 she was in a near fatal car accident. I remember it like it was yesterday even though it was in 2004. It was a rainy night and I had been trying to reach her on her cell phone. Her fried came over and picked her up just as I was getting home from work. They were going into the mountains and she would be home later. The rains came and I attempted to call her over and over again, each time the call went into her voice mail. Finally the phone rang and I anticipated it was her giving some excuse of why she was late and it was the hospital emergency room trauma center in Boulder. They had brought her in via ambulance after a car accident. The hospital was about 30 minutes away and I remember the serial drive my husband and I took to the hospital. They would not tell us anything over the phone, they just told us to drive safe and get there as quick as possible. I can still feel the emotion of it all as I write this.
This quote in the MKS -- Part Eleven read "A very distressing situation came into my life, which could not have been the result of my thought, as I certainly never entertained any thought which could have such a result." Interesting enough, before I knew about the power of our thoughts and our language I had little respect for what was coming out of my mouth, much less what it was doing to me and the people around me. Every time my daughter walked out the door I said, "Don't get in a car accident." While we are only as good as what we know, I honestly did not know. I was planting this into her thought process. We make choices determined by our experiences and our thoughts and what we know. I do not blame myself for her accident, however, I do take responsibility for what I think about and what comes out of my mouth.
My daughter did survive, and as I have mentioned in previous blogs she recently had a beautiful healthy daughter.
About a year later the local newspaper wrote an article about the accident.
There were so many miracles that happened that day. For one, someone actually saw the vehicle go off the road and immediately called 911. It just so happened the volunteer fire department was having a meeting and they were only minutes away. My daughter and her friend were in the worst shape and were taken to the trauma center. The other two were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The young man in the vehicle broke his neck and was paralyzed from the neck down, my daughter had sustained a traumatic brain injury, along with a shattered orbital, her jaw was broken in two places and she had several skull fractures. The first night the doctors politely told us we would have to see what the morning would bring. The local newspaper wrote that the blond girl would probably not make it through the night. Thank God we did not see that until the next day and she has survived the night. Come to find out she had been submerged in the Thompson River and her body was 1 degree above hypothermia. The doctors believed that is what kept her brain from swelling and saved her life. Another miracle.
As the reporter continued interviewing the two accident victims, some very interesting comments came out of it. My daughter, who was a model and actor at the time had no regrets. Even though she would be dealing with residuals from the accident for years to come. The young man, who was now partially paralyzed and had spent months in the hospital said, "He had always had a great fear of becoming paralyzed." He also said, "I was on a bad path in my life and this straightened him out." Both have gone on and have created wonderful lives for themselves.
"Because the thoughts you hold in your mind determine what happens in your life, it's vital to assume conscious responsibility for your subconscious thoughts." Charles Hannel (I am not sure if this is exact because I had to possibly modify it to fit on my Twitter account)
What I have learned, be careful what you think about, be careful what you talk about "We fail to remember that like attracts like in the mental world, and that the though which we entertain brings to us certain friendships, championships of a particular kind, and these in turn bring about conditions and environment, which in turn are responsible for the conditions of which we complain." -- MKS
The photo above is our son, we learn so much from our kids. When he was little he wrote in his journal he wanted to b 6'5". His dad was almost 6'1". Not sure where he got 6'5" from but it was a goal for him. He told us numerous times he would be 6'5". We believed he believed it, but I have to admit my husband and I didn't know if he would get that tall. He kept growing, and we kept watching him in aww! Today he is . . . are you ready . . . nearly 6'7"!! We are not sure how it happened, but it did.
In week 14 of the Master Key Experience we were given several movies to watch that were examples of the "Hero's Journey." We were asked to pick two of the movies and watch them. Most of them I had never seen before, during the webinar several people shared about the movies they had watched without giving anything away. I decided to watch Mully and Rudy!
I watched Mully first but I am going to share my experience with Rudy first.
After watching Rudy for a bit much of it seemed very familiar to me and much of it I was sure I had never seen. I am notorious for falling asleep during movies so I was not. Or I was just remembering the trailer for the movie. His tenacity and persistence was incredible. He told everyone what he was doing so they could watch, and watch they did. They watched him try, and try again. They lived each ounce of disappointment and failure, in his eyes. They judged him along the way. And, his dream of playing football for ND continued. One obstacle after another, but he kept going. As the season was about to end and he started to feel his dream was slipping away, the team he had given his all to stepped up and helped him reach his dream.
He was never afraid to tell anyone what he was going to do, not matter what. And, because he told people about his dream and asked people to help he built a community around him that supported him and became a part of his "Hero's Journey."
I saved Mully for last because of it's incredible power of faith and asking. Here was a man that by all accounts had reached tremendous success and was probably envied by many. When he realized how far he had come and how far away he was from his purpose he realized he was not where God wanted him to be. I truly believe he had two "Hero's Journeys" because without the first one he could not have understood how to accomplish the second one. When he asked God, it was perfectly clear he could do it, he did not know how, he was given the answer and his unwavering faith in God delivered him into his "Definite Major Purpose." And, just like Rudy, no one could understand what he was doing and why he was doing it and expressed they thought he was crazy. His "Hero's Journey" was of faith and the power of asking .
As I continue this journey I realize that I am not playing it big enough, more than once I have been told I have so much more I have and each time I have backed down. However this is no my future self and I am so excited to meet her!
I always keep my promises.
As we completed Week 10 of the MKE more and more I see what my thoughts have created, AND, I am more aware of what other people's thoughts have created in their life!! I have been an observer of language for a long time, and now I am not much more aware of my language, which I continue to work on, I am listening even more intently to others.
I am realizing how many people are talking about fear, they are living their life in fear and they want others to live in fear too. Which for me, means they are not living their life at all. Some are not in fear for themselves but for everyone around them, and they are barley living. Their language is along the lines of, "I wish I could, but, I can't." "I would love to join you but, I can't." They are viciously not living through someone else.
So, my question is are we perpetuating the fear. Is there a ripple effect that is taking place, and if we truly embrace the "law of attraction" and we are not living our truth because our thoughts are of fear, fear of judgement, fear of being accused of not caring, (when we do) then what type of life are we creating?
Have we actually manifesting the experiences, are we stuck in this or can we change it?! Can our thoughts remove the fear of what is going on, can we choose not to participate in the general publics thought process, can we really manifest health among the world? We know the "laws" work, we know because they are scientifically proven, they are truth! We know that!!
10:10 Even so, a thought is dropped into the invisible substance of the Universal Mind, that substance from which all things are created, and as it takes root, the law of growth begins to take effect and we find that conditions and environment are but the objective form of our thought. "MKS"
Fear is perpetuating fear. The ripple effect is real! Look at what our minds have created!
10:20 It will be exactly the same with you, if you entertain thoughts which are not in accordance with the infinite and cannot therefore be polarized; there is no circuit, you are isolated, the thoughts cling to you, harass you, worry you and finally bring about disease and possibly death; the physician may not diagnose the case exactly in this way, he may give it some fancy name which has been manufactured for the various ills which are the result of wrong thinking, but the case is the same nevertheless. "MKS"
MKS -- Master Key System - Charles T. Haanel
Mind blowing for sure!! Each week I continue to put the pieces together. It is alike a huge puzzle that I have not actually seen the picture of the puzzle. Each week I start to understand how last week fits into the this week. It is so exciting and eye opening.
Substitute constructive thought for destructive thought!! (Part of Week 8) Really, why did I not think of this before! I do have s strong word I use when a thought tries to get into my brain and I do not want it there. I say the word "impervious." When someone says something rude or something that use to be (many of the negative thoughts are gone and in many cases I don't even remember what they were, I say to my self I am impervious and the thought stops. What I did not realize in many cases I would substitute a constructive thought about the destructive thought. Being more aware of this is really exciting. Now in Week 9 I am actually replacing my destructive thought with "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy." Boom! I have also shared this affirmation with several people I know.
My character is not a thing of chance, I have been working on this for years. When I do or say something that is out of character for me it weighs on me, I have learned to give myself grace. I am careful what I say. Our words have a ripple effect on the people around us and the world around us. Much of what I have learned over the years has created incredible relationships for me with my son and daughter, and for my husband and me. I do have a lot of love in my life and tremendous friendships. This is all because I learned to say "Thank you" when I am complemented and I studied and realized the importance of gratitude, forgiveness, and respect. I believe "respect" is the reason my husband and I have been married for 37 years and that we enjoy each others company everyday . . . and my goal to bring home all of my pie!
Chaos vs Cosmos! For some reason this phrase really hit me. I know people who live in complete chaos and that use to be me. You would not believe the things that were happing in my life because I was not present to my surroundings. I was rushing from one thought to the next and never really appreciating anything good I had in my life. I was constantly wining and pointing the finger at everyone for everything that was happening. It was the banks fault I was over drawn, it was the guys fault that stopped to quickly and I ran into his bumper... this happened 3 times! There are way too many things to list here, and besides I am not that person anymore however, (you are experiencing my future self) now it is easy for me to recognize the chaos in someone else's life. I see how the laws can create chaos if not used correctly.
Imagine you wake up everyone morning with a full pie, you most favorite pie, this is appropriate since it is Thanksgiving and I love pumpkin pie, especially my husbands pumpkin pie! He makes the best. Each encounter during the day you have the choice to give a pice of your pie away! Someone cuts you off on the way to work, you get upset and say a few words and whoops, there goes a piece of your pie. The goal is to keep all your pie and bring it home to your loved ones. If you give it away all day to an employee you made you mad, or your boss says something you didn't like there goes another piece of your pie. We have a saying when someone comes home and they say that had a bad day, we ask them if they gave their pie away. And, if they are in a bad mood of course they gave all their pie away and they have nothing left for those they truly love. Using this example and the pie metaphor has kept me from having a lot of really bad days. I always want to save as much pie as I can for my family.
The mental diet, I believe is a life time example of how to live a truly happy life! While, it was apparent to me during the mental diet I could do a much better job. I am still working on my 7 days straight, I am embracing it every day! Thank you for this exercise. I feel I have master much and still have a lot to learn.
I have had to start over daily because of my negative thoughts. The great thing is that most of the negative thoughts I use to have about myself I have worked really hard on those over the years. However, the subby is in charge and I realize while I consciously I am not saying them to myself subby is really the one in control and the bad habits are deep seaded in there. I am recognizing how may new habits I have acquired over the years and a real recent one is to floss 2-3 times a day. So far I am doing great and I am starting to feel the nudge when I don't do it. The subby is still there trying to convince me I don't have to do it and it is okay if I don't do it. Just like all my other tasks during the MKE!
I get it now, I am starting to understand the method to the madness!!
My DMP is really starting to come together and with the help from my guide I am starting to feel the energy when I ready it. It makes me smile when I read my press release. I have added a few images to my "Movie Trailer Board" and I am feeling there energy there too.
As you can imagine (I am a yellow) I love doing the activities that include the 3x5 cards, the posters and coloring for sure!
I always keep my promises!
I realized that last week was a blur! I had started on my Movie poster and never finished it, I was late with my DMP and I did not do my blog. I went back and realized how far behind I was and while I did not want to quit I gave myself grace. And, then I remembered on one of the MasterMind calls someone else was feeling overwhelmed and trying to catch up . . . "Do what you can and start right now!"
I am seriously loving all of this and I have realized that I have to really prioritize here. I have more than full time job, I have a Network Marketing team that is growing. My current job is demanding and many days it turns into a 12 hour day. I feel like I am managing a lot in my Network Marketing team that I have been growing for nearly 10 years. I make a decent income and I know I can make more.
I currently have little time to spend with my husband during the week and it is easy for me be distracted on the weekends getting to spend time with him. I am realizing I need to work smarter through the week so I can spend the weekend with him . As you can see from my movie poster that my husband and I have been able to travel quite a bit for business and for pleasure. I want to continue to do that. We have purchased our new camper and truck and have been to many places already this past summer. We have already booked several trips for next year. I want more time to travel and be with my husband and for me to be able to do that I have to understand what I really should be doing in my business. I have signed up for Simple6 Master Mind and if you are in Network Marketing I highly recommend you do it too . . . and I would hurry because it starts this week (Nov. 10) and it is FREE!! https://simple6masterclass.com/
Joe Rogan Experience
Joe Rogan caught up with my husband and me in Austin while we were traveling around the country in our camper. He was very intrigued about how we were able to make money and even support organizations that are fighting human trafficking, serving our Veterans, and supporting families of children who want to play hockey and asked us to share all the amazing places we have visited in our beautiful country!
Joe: So Marianne how is that you and your husband are able to travel the country?
Marianne: I have earned a residual income with my network marketing business that has allowed me to travel around the country with my husband and serve the people we meet along the way with their health and even their income. What makes what I do so unique is that the products that I represent really work and the people I serve get terrific results and they share with the people they meet along the way.
Joe: Tell me more about the camper you live in and the truck you pull it with.
Marianne: Joe, I am glad you asked about our camper. We searched for 3 years to find the camper we wanted that would provide us the most comfort in the smallest space. It has all the technology you could ask for including a WiFi extender and a solar panel. But, the truck is the most impressive with twin turbo engines, pretty loaded Ford F150 and you can’t even tell the camper is back there, especially when going up a hill.
Joe: What are some of the amazing places you have been?
Marianne: We travel to different locations, usually every few weeks, and we make a plan to travel for a a month or two at a time depending where we are going. We have traveled down the West Coast visiting Washington, and the Redwood Forest. We have also traveled down the East Coast through Maine and down to Florida. Because of my business being worldwide, as you can imagine, we have lots of friends in the United States and occasionally we head to an airport and take off to Australia, New Zealand, and Scotland to see Loch Ness! We have seen Gettysburg and toured Manassas National Battlefield Park and Yorktown Battlefield Colonial National Park. My husband and I have become a bit of history buffs.
Joe: What words would you use to best describe the life you have created for you and your husband?
Marianne: I started out with Autonomy and Liberty! I created a life of freedom to come and go as I please and a way to bring my husband with me by earning an income that allowed me to pay off our camper and our truck to give us financial freedom. It gave us choices about when and where we wanted to live. We made our home base in Longmont, Colorado because both our kids and their families live there. We plan to make a new home base once it makes sense to move. We travel around the country visiting family.
Joe: I heard that you and your husband like to give back. What does that look like for you and Ken and why did you pick the particular organizations to support?
Marianne: As you know, Joe, human trafficking has grown over the years and has basically been ignored as we focused on other so called distractions in this country. It breaks my heart that thousands of children are taken every year never to be returned to their family’s along with teenagers and young adults. Most of the people involved have been above reproach until now. We also support Homeless Veterans who have been forgotten. We support an organization that builds tiny homes for Veterans and they have programs to get them back on their feet, address their needs to get them back into society. And, we also support families who have children who want to play hockey and are not able to afford the programs. Hockey is very expensive and when we were struggling financially there was an organization that supported our son so he could play hockey. We have given back many different ways over the years by volunteering our time and now we are able to support them financially. My life is about serving the people I meet and giving back to organizations that are close to my heart. I want to thank you, Joe, for letting me share our story of freedom and giving back.
God Bless you and your audience!
Joe: Marianne it has been an honor to spend time with you today and thank you for all you are doing to support and serve others!
What does service mean to you? Back in the day, before I started my journey, I didn't really get the "Give More Get More." This week we studied Ralph Waldo Emerson's Compensation. What does Karma really mean in your life? What does it really mean when someone says an "eye for an eye, tit for tat, and all the other cliches we hear. I'll tell you want it means, you better watch what you do, pay attention to what you say, and understand how you want to show up in the universe?
This week we were not suppose to share our opinions! I had no idea I was so opinionated!! No, I'm serious. I even attempted to consider my opinions to be beliefs and therefore they were not really opinions. I had extensive conversations with friends and myself about the definition of opinions. I lost the battle and had a rough week with this task.
Back in the day when someone gave me a complement I would immediately figure out a way to discount it. If someone complemented me on an outfit I was wearing I would immediately point out how it wasn't that nice, it was cheap, someone gave it to me, etc. One day a friend of mine told me to say "Thank You," and leave it at that. I struggled with it for months, I did not know how to receive! Not a complements, moneys, (always felt like it was not deserved), presents, and it went on and on. I was not grateful and always looking for a way to be undeserving! Sound familiar? However, I was constantly giving to people, not because I expected anything in return, because I wanted to give and keep on giving. However, then the thank you came, or a gift for something I did I felt unworthy of it. Now I look back and think how messed up that was.
How could I expect to get and keep anything if I could not actually receive anything! Today, my life has abundance and I keep learning everyday. Once again the Master Key Master Mind Alliance has blown me away with the readings of "The Master Key" and "Ralph Waldo Emerson" Compensation.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I always keep my promises.
This is my 4th week in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance and I am finally feeling like I am figuring out the process. I am definitely a yellow. I am constantly in the process of organizing and figuring which pen I am going to write my next note with. LOL
I am loving the 3x5 postcards and using the color pencils. I am using the 3x5 cards for a lot of note taking and master minding for my self. Now I have the cards all over my desk vs the sticky notes.
I am starting to feel tied to my DMP. In the past I was not good at writing goals and giving them dates to be accomplished by. I have manifested quite a bit over the past several years and have learned a lot! I really appreciate the process of writing our DMPs and it gives me time to write notes during the week. I am also getting the hang of doing all the reading. I am an Audible girl for sure.
I bought "The Master Key" several years ago and honestly I started reading it and was overwhelmed by the actual process. I read the book "Tapping The Source" Using the Master Key System for Abundance and Happiness" which was easier for me to handle along with many other books about the "Law Of Attraction", I have been drawn to the Master Key Master Mind Alliance because I believe this will tie everything together I have studied, not to mention I love Mark and Davene!
This is my granddaughter, Kirxianna Sno Lynn. This photo was taken today! She is 18 months old. Before she was born my husband and I were looking at moving out of state and we had been traveling to other states to figure out where we wanted to go. When our daughter told us she was having a baby and that we couldn't leave... we decided to stay in Colorado for the time being. As you can imagine everything was in motion, things were falling into place and all of a sudden I had to change my manifesting on dime. We bought a brand new townhome that was being built and moved into it last August. In March we purchased a small camper to and truck so we can travel around the country. Colorado continues to to be our home for now We are so excited for Christmas. Our son and his fiancé just moved to Loveland, Colorado. We all live less than 45 minutes from each other.
My next step is my husband to have a choice on or before June 1st, 2021. There I said it out loud! Thank you MKMMA!!
We never know what to expect in life... sometimes the darkest moments become the brightest moments. Like you, I have had a life of ups and downs and at certain points in my life I wasn't sure if I could go get much further down.
