7 days continuously without negative thoughts; for real

Attempting to go about my daily day without negative thoughts has brought about an awareness in me that I did not realize.  WOW!  Damn!  I didn’t realize how much negativity I spew out.  I’m lucky to have made an hour and that’s usually if I’m at home lol and it’s just me.  If a negative thought lingers for more than 7 sec I have to restart and start all over again.  I didn’t realize that being frustrated from standing in a short line  and it was taking longer than it should, my opinion, because the clerk is slow, or being cut off while driving, calling the driver a jerk where negative, it just seemed such a normal response.  I didn’t realize frustration was negativity.  Let me tell you I was so disappointed in my self to realize I was more negative than I thought.  I did not get a chance to watch this Sundays webinar and I just watched it, before I wrote this blog.  Mark J. told us it’s not our fault it’s a 100 years of heredity that we are predisposition to think negatively.  Hope it doesn’t take me 100 years to go 7 days without a negative thought,  lol.  To be honest I didn’t start the diet until Thursday after I read Emmet Fox 7 day Diet on Tuesday he instructed to try it when you are ready, so I started it Thursday.  Was I ready to find out how much negativity there is all around me and by me?   The negativity around me didn’t surprise me, being so negative myself did.  So now that the cat is out of the bag and to be honest this week I’ve been living the sin of the desert, which means I’ve been not giving my full effort this week.  Its times to dig in and be the best positive person that I  can be, by practicing the law of substitution more than I have been with the 7 day mental diet.

I want to be able to look in the mirror every night and ask Norina, if she did her best today?  And with enthusiasm say yes, “yes I frigging did Norina”!  I will practice, practice, practice to accomplish 7 consecutive days of no negative thoughts or opinions, verbally or mentally!   I always keep my promises Norina Lelii

Today I begin a new life

I will greet this day with love in my heart.  This is the second week on The Greatest Salesman in the World Scroll II and we had to carry over 1 sentence from Scroll I and place on top of scroll II. Today I begin a new life is my sentence. I was going to use another sentence but on the last day of the read, I chose this instead and I had not read what the first line in scroll II was yet until after I wrote that.   My heart has not been open to love for quite some time now, and I’ve been saying to my self that its time to open it again, so it seems appropriate that I’ve changed my mind and used that line, instead of I swallow the seed of success.  Today I begin a new life, I will greet this day with love in my heart.  I’m ready for my journey of love and I’m ready to give more of it once again.

Peace to all Norina

Be kind to yourself and others and don’t forget give more

Master Keys Week 6 Awareness, Focus and Pratice

Practice makes perfect

Week 6 finds me a little off my game, physically and mentally.  Monday had me thinking of quitting just for a brief moment but I used one of the 7 Laws of the Mind.  The Law of Dual Thought and immediately thought out loud and said,” Norina Lelii you are not giving up on yourself get that thought out of your head.” and bam it was gone!  Hasn’t been back since.  Also in the same day as I was putting the dishes away a though crossed my mind, “do a sit” so I put down what I was doing and did a sit, I actually listened  to myself for a change.  The first thing that popped in to my thoughts was an opportunity that was brought to me and I’m not sure if I want to go that route and I even imagined getting my family together to it, but I think I need another sit on it.   I’ve been practicing bringing  all 7 Laws of  the Mind in to my life. Some are conscious efforts like the Law of Substitution when a negative thoughts enter your mind you try to think of something pleasant instead it seems to be happening naturally. I’m not perfect but is a great start and I’m proud of that.  I’m definitely noticing that I’m more relaxed and less stressed. Not all the time but I’m definitely improving on it.  Since I’m practicing I’ve got that covered even when I don’t realize that I am doing it.  I’m manifesting and linking with my shapes and doing my lessons and sits so I can see my self growing.  I’m even sitting with Law of Forgiveness and I believe in time that I will eventually be able to forgive all.  This week started off if it could go wrong it did.  With me I swear it’s a full moon thing.  Little things where happening and then I fell off a ladder but on the  positive side to that was, if my car was not parked in the garage area, one I would have broken my screen door and two I could have done more damage to an old beat up back.  In stead I got banked up but I stood up and bounced off the car instead of falling backwards and smashing my head. I took care of myself didn’t go for any pharmacy drugs and used CBD oil instead.  If I wasn’t on a new healthy lifestyle I would be in more pain and my recovery would take longer.  So I’m grateful for that.  I’m grateful in that I can see myself getting healthy not just my weight, every sit before I start my lesson I ask my mind to relax and release the pain, per Davene suggestions.

Power of thought

Lesson 6.21 Hannel says, ” So with the power of thought; let power be dissipated by scattering the thought from one object to another, and no result is apparent; but focus this power through attention or concentration on any single purpose for any length of time and nothing becomes impossible.  This is where I’m having a hardship in that I can’t see where I want my future to be I’m having a hard time focusing on the happiness I desire, I wonder if it’s because when at times when I felt truly happy it was short-lived.  I have a beginning of what I want to happen and with whom but then I lose focus and my mind wonders and im at the beginning again.  Have to sit on this block and push through it.

EXERCISE

The week 6 sit exercise was to look at a picture for at least 10 mins and try to capture that image in your mind with a mental image of the picture. Before I did the sit Hannel suggested pick a single object and concentrate our attention on a definite purpose for 10 minutes, he said you cannot do it, that your mind would wander a dozen times and you would have to keep bringing your thought back to the original purpose.  Haha of course he was right.  Lol.  I had no problem capturing a mental picture and when I wasn’t sitting I was able to capture a mental picture of a coworker who I have not seen in over 25 years.  I don’t know why  she popped in to my mind but it was crazy how I could see the color of her shirt the expressions she would make with her eyes and that big smile she had.  I could even see the color lipstick she was wearing. It was a bizarre occurrence.  I’m sure there will be a link somewhere in the future.

In conclusion I know I have a lot of work to do on my self, it’s not going to happen over night and that’s ok with me. Look how long it took me to get this point, not over night! What matters is that I’m learning, I’m living, I’m growing and I’m not lonely in this quest for a new way of life.  Even though we live all around the world we all have one thing in common, we want change.  MKE found us for a reason.  We are all damaged, in some form or another, we all handle it in different ways, we all want the same thing to chip away at our cement and anytime we find that link or push though that mental block of fear more pieces fall to our feet and glimmers of gold squeak out. We want to have faith and believe that we will find what we truly desire and treat it with the respect and love that we deserve.  We all want our Gold to shine through not just glimmers of it.

Bedtime Ritual

I looked in the mirror after I read the poem I can honestly say I’m at 85 to 90% of what I’m doing but I’m getting better I’m still here trying.  I looked in the mirror and repeated I love myself.   I can’t wait until I feel the power of those words.

Love to all and believing in all of us finding our Golden Buddha’s

Peace and blessings Norina

Week 5 Master Key Praticing Letting Go

Practicing cleaning of my mind of past hurts, betrayals, and negativity 

I’ve been reading Master Keys lesson week 5 since Monday and it wasn’t until Thursday evening when I finished reading Emerson essay on Compensation that it hit me. Until I let go of my past traumas and forgive those who took away my childhood innocence that the change and growth I seek will continue as they are static.  If I forgive them than I can forgive me, 2 halves of a whole. It seems by just trying to forget and not working through it and letting go has not worked in my life.  This year beginning in January flashbacks that I have pushed back have come to the forefront and ones that have not come in years also want their way out. I’ve never spoken of this, it’s been my experience alone for 49 years and I know now, that until I release these negative thoughts from my mind and put the past behind me, that I will not be able to control my mind and find that power withen.  In Emerson’s essay this is where I had my aha moment.  “Nothing can work me damage except myself; the harm that I sustain I carry about with me, and never am a real sufferer but by my own fault.”  After I read the essay I proceeded with the daily reading of Hannel and when I got to 5.12 mental, moral and physical cleanliness are absolutely indispensable if we are to make progress of any kind.  That connection between the two for me, made me more aware of what I need to do.  Until I clean my mind of all my circumstances in my past, that I will never be able to bring my desire to realization.  I might have the keys in hand but I won’t be able to be heir and take possession of the fine abundant estate that is waiting for me.  My mind and spirit will only be half of each other and not the whole it needs to be.

I think a chip has fallen off my Buddha

In conclusion I know what I need to do and after reading 7 Laws of the Mind,  I must continue to practice cleaning my mind, sitting still and stop the negativity from entering my thoughts and if they do replace them with a pleasant happy thought.  I must forgive everyone and anyone who has caused me harm or injustice.  Until I do, I will not grow I will not have access to the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresence Creator.  I know this is a process, it’s one that I will continue.  I’m so glad Master Keys found me and I have the belief and faith that I will conquer my demons with practice.  I will gain control of my thoughts and take possession of that estate and have an abundance of heath and liberty.  Thanks to the Creator who blessed me with an open mind for that has been constant in my life always.   I always keep my promises Norina Lelii

It’s amazing how all these readings link together and everyone sees what they need to to start the crumbling of the cement. I look forward to reading other blogs on week 5

PEACE Norina

Masterkey Experience Lessons 2-3 Week 3

Lesson 2 Our difficulties are largely due to confused ideas and ignorance of our true interest. 

That statement by Haanel, could not be any more truer in my life.  I was a medical assistant working in a OB/GYN practice and I was underpaid, over worked, stressed unappreciated and getting frustrated. Decided in 2003 to return back to school since I had an associate degree in science half the battle was done, right?  Nope, my sciences were not transferable because 5 yrs lapsed. No worries money wasn’t an issue work was paying for it, so I began with all my Science courses, I had no social life but It was a small sacrifice to pay.  Here is the kicker, I never wanted to be a nurse, yes I loved my patients at work. I enjoy helping people always did, that’s what I did best but Nursing was not it for me no desire what so ever. Better money and appreciation from my bosses is what I wanted. (Ego). My patients appreciated me, I knew that, they always told me and thanked me for caring about their welfare they where the reason I stayed. January 2008 one class away from applying to Nursing schools.  Bam!  I’m struck from behind while I was trying to merge on a highway without a merging lane. That put me on a path of chronic pain. See I was telling my conscious mind that I didn’t want to be a nurse, had no desire for it and given a false impression to my subconscious mind.  My subconscious knew my objective to be false and put in to action to take me off my wrong path.  After years I realized that accident happened for a reason but it wasn’t until Master Keys lesson 2 that it showed me it was because my conscious mind was out of harmony with my subconscious mind.  It brought it all together for me.

2.17  Haanel wrote, receiving any suggestions as true, the subconscious mind at once proceeds to act there on in the whole domain of its tremendous field of work.  The conscious mind can suggest either truth or error.  If the latter, it is at the cost of wide – reaching peril to the whole being.

Wow! My ego and misalignment of my harmony cost me 10 years of chronic pain and depression. Never again will I force my conscious mind to do what I don’t want. From here on out I will tell my conscious mind what I want my objective to be and bring my subconscious the truth and find my power within.

Our exercise in lesson 2 was to be perfectly still and inhibit thought. The purpose is to give you control over all thoughts of care, worry, fear and will enable you to entertain only the kind of thoughts you desire. At first try it didn’t take long for the thoughts to rush in tried 3 more times and finally with the help of an image of a brick wall and a message written on it, no thoughts allowed it helped me get to a little over a minute f no thoughts.  Last week I was practicing shoving away negative thoughts from my mind but this week when the negative thoughts would sneak in they were replaced with what I wanted instead.

Lesson 3

3.17 Haanel says, it is our attitude of mind toward life which determines the experience with which we are to meet; if we expect nothing, we shall have nothing; if we demand much, we shall receive the greater portion.

Now I know why loyalty was never returned to me, and I always would question why, when I have  always been loyal to my friends.  Growing up I quest I was tired of being disappointed  that I decided to never expect anything from anyone. That way I would never be disappointed by anyone. Damn that explains a lot!  Seems like I ended up disappointing my self all these years.  No crying over spilt milk. I’m here to move forward.

These past 2 weeks I have been putting in to practice of putting my self in the present, not complaining about things as they are and controlling my negative thoughts.  Learning to understand that my thoughts and  feelings that I put out in to the Universe are what come back to me and seeing that my attitude, negativity, fear, judgements is why I been feeling so lost and disconnected from people and life. I’ve been wanting to change I just didn’t know how. Now I do! It’s true what they say power is knowledge!

I’m moving forward and even though I’m discovery I’ve been sabotaging myself I’m not mad or angry with myself.  I’m just glad I’m learning a new way and I’m starting to live a new life.  I’m also glad that I am an open minded individual and I like to think outside the box.

I always keep my promises!

Thanks for reading my blog and have an awesome week!  Peace Norina

Please be kind to one another it’s not hard to open a door for some one or tell some one they have a nice smile.  Being kind has no boundaries!
