Week#21 I AM Lorelei my Future Self…

 

So I begin my Story at the beginning…My Naming Day!

9:00am Saturday June 12th 1965

My Dad was a seaman (I say was, as he has now left the planet on another adventure) and I being his first daughter of course he was going to name me after a Mermaid 🙂

Lorelei

This video below is sung by one of my favorite Australian Artists Mike Seymour from the Band ‘Hunters and Collectors’ with his daughter Hannah…

So what has this all got to do with my future self?

I believe your naming day is a very special time as whom ever names you has a reason, from liking that name, being a family name passed down through the generations, to it having a certain meaning OR memory for them and then later on for you too unless you change it 🙂

From this time forth so many things are going to happen, you are going to learn habits some good, some bad but just about everyone you come into contact with will leave an impression OR habit with you…

Pretty full on and straight out of the gates before you can even speak you will communicate with gestures and sounds, whomever is attending to those needs will respond differently to each, as you begin to grow and understand more, more habits will be introduced, like not touching something HOT as it will burn you in most instances ‘fear’ is used this way, later its the ‘if you do that then this will happen’ guilt is used and so on and so on…Parents do what ever it takes to teach YOU good habits, morals etc.  But they are only working with the knowledge they have and what they were taught and passed down from whichever generation whom taught them to this, sometimes some really bad habits…

So when I take a look at myself NOW and then close my eyes and see myself in the FUTURE are we the same? What is different? What do I have to do to merge into the ME of my future?

#1: Learn some New Skills

#2: Become FRIENDS with my Future Self: chat, enjoy, love, create and just BE.

#3: Ditch everyone else’s habits and then grow and nurture my OWN.

#4: Make some Decisions and take Action

So What Does MY Future Self Look Like?

Bliss-Filled Glowing Orb of Shining Light…

WTF does that mean and what do you do to make that happen?

It means to JUST BE ME! The positive, optimistic,  Joy-Filled Being that I AM spreading my Light!

Greeting each day with LOVE in my Heart. Persisting and Succeeding. Being Nature’s Greatest Miracle. Living Each Day as if it is My Last. Being the Master of My Emotions. Laughing at the World. Acting NOW! Asking and Receiving. Giving and Being In Service…

…And before I know it…I AM my Future Self Living My Dream!

Week Twenty: Putting on my Wonder Women pants and Striking a Pose

WONDER WOMEN…her PANTS

&

Madonna’s STRIKE A POSE

il_340x270.672571128_sujj

I have stepped up to that plate you know the one everyone talks about “stepping up to”

I have been feeling uncomfortable in my own skin for over 3months now, what is causing this? I finally got clarity on Sunday Evening, a phone call from a treasured friend and everything was presented.

As I was reading my daily BPB (blue print builder) with ENTHUSiasm I would get to the line…”I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice therefore, I engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it effects” and I was feeling that something I was doing was just not in balance with this statement…

Well all has been revealed…so my above statement about Wonder Women, her pants and Striking a Pose was for ME to jump Into my fear pants n all and take on a big corporation, challenge them to justify some changes that were made and give me what I purchased OR a refund for said purchases, I have never done anything like this on my own, putting the info together, and then sending a letter which I blessed with loving kindness, sent my Angels in to talk with their Angels…

STRIKE a POSE! What is that?

So there is a way to make us feel more confident, less fear-filled and take action, be it reading in front of a classroom filled with children, going to a job interview, doing a life presentation, meeting on an airplane what ever you are a wee bit scared to do…

SHARE SHARE SHARE

Its about body language…take a look around you at your children, your partner, your work associates, team members, friends, people you look up to and see how they stand OR sit…Are they hunched over closed in on themselves OR are they straight and open?

Even if you feel scared you can “fake it till you make it”

Put yourself into a POWER POSE this is standing OR sitting straight and tall with arms either wide open above your head OR hands held stead fast to your hips, elbows facing out…hold this for 2minutes WOW you are going to feel totally Power-filled! You can visualize like I do my Wonder Women pants mine aren’t red, white n blue though mine are gold and sparkly, my niece sent them to me, she must of known I was going to need them this week ?

Then “Do It Now” what ever you were scared to do…Do it!  Go check it out!   See how it makes you FEEL and what does your body look like now?   I would love some comments posted on your experience…

So how did I feel?

Well…I did it, it took me several hours to get all of the information needed, document it all, get the letter sorted then mail it…I FELT FRIKEN AWESOME and when it was all done and completed I feel GOOD about my decision made.  Some more concrete just feel off!

CONCERETE? yeah concrete but that’s another story…

Another Confirmation that all is well is that my VIRTUE this week is DECISIVENESS how kool is that?

Week#19 Stepping Out of the System and Giving

This week I am sharing a story my good friend BRONY RUSSELL sent me about this AMAZing couple from Melbourne – Australia.

Maria and Allan. THEY ARE TOTALLY LIVING THE #MasterKeyExperience they know that their lives are all about service, giving without reciprocity, they are living the 7 Laws of the Mind and believe in the Universe supplying everything they need to survive: food and shelter, they Love are Peace-filled and Happy without a care in the world…

NOW this is TRULY LIVING in the World without FEAR…Giving and Receiving 🙂   

Meet Maria and Allan from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

12719381_1282918971723176_1712118697235240711_o
We have been traveling without money for over twenty years. In 93 we gave everything away and began our journey.That year I gave my home to the person who wanted it. Allan gave all his possessions to the Steiner school he worked at. Giving gives such joy. You must be prepared to let go, attachment you don’t need.

We travelled without any money for about two and a half years until the government caught up with us. They got stressed because we hadn’t applied for our pensions. We lived with no money, we walked until we were offered shelter, we fasted until we were fed. Traveling with just one bag with two pair of knickers and two T-shirts was a challenge, but it never ever stopped me from trusting. This is okay, this is what i’m meant to be doing.In the end we gave in and took our pensions. We never use that pension, we give it all away, I don’t have a need for it. They say we must, so we do what they like and they’re happy. Everything I have is given to me, because I give. But I don’t give expecting, I just give.

We would be asked to give workshops and personal sessions around the world. We never told them we’d work for no money beforehand. We allowed them to give. In the end we would say: It’s all yours. If you can, look for a project that deserves it. Maybe it’s a family in need, whatever you find from your heart, help them. This was Polish money, it was Indian money, it didn’t matter where we were, it belonged to those people, not to us. We didn’t need it.

It makes my heart sing when somebody says: I am awake, I have woken up. Everybody would like you to stay asleep, to not realize who you are. You’ve given yourselves the opportunity to find out who you are, without being in the mundane nine to five, pay your bills system. You are free now, and your decisions come from your heart, not from your head. That’s what makes it beautiful.

Our seed for change? Find still time, by that I mean be in your own company and listen. Don’t expect messages to come in a particular way. Believe in You, for nobody knows You better than You. Do a little mantra every day: I believe in me, I love and trust myself. Every day, a thousand times if you like. The more you say it, the more it becomes a way of being. It’s simple, it’s so damn simple. We can only do it with love, with violence it’s been tried and it doesn’t work.

Week#18 ‘To be OR not to be’ Hamlet by William Shakespeare

Act3, Scene1, Spoken by Hamlet By William Shakespeare
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause—there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of dispriz’d love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action
.
What the heck does that all mean? I would love to hear what YOU think it means YOUR translation not some experts!  I’m leaving it at that for now…

So as a Guide it is interesting to see who in the #MKMMA Tribe make it to the end of the course and on the way to Their Bliss. And for what reason do they complete it?

…In herald of the call OR just complete because they are stubborn and wont quit no matter what, even though they are not committed 100%.

Who makes the DECISION then hunkers down and does ALL the work!   Who walks down that ‘yellow brick road’ one step at a time AND who goes ‘falling down the hole to follow that white rabbit’

Are YOU fighting to not fall asleep in the field of poppies? Then hiding in the haunted forest from the flying monkeys? OR are YOU playing riddles with the Cheshire cat as he teaches you all about where you are at this time OR are YOU completely lost in the maze with the Queens guard hunting you down?

Then before YOU know it you have met some others along the “yellow brick road” looking for courage, a heart and some brains (knowledge) hmmm this looks a bit like a Master Mind Alliance here…Everyone doing their part on their own journeys but helping each other along the way, through the bad parts with a simple thing as a “bucket of water” and in the good times as they each realize it was all ‘within themselves’ after all.

OR do YOU go from small to BIG, you end up at some crazy tea party  alice-in-wonderland-party-tea-party

 

 

 

…then race into a maze where a trial for the knave of heart’s, who stole some tarts is being held, which by the way you think is ridiculous so you tell everyone, who then are all offended and the Queen orders “off with her head”.

il_570xN.305814060

…All the while following the white rabbit … images-1

Then you wake up still where you were before you fell down the rabbit hole…

So where are you on Your Journey so far?

Are You Working with a Master Mind Alliance, trial by trial working it out, getting it done! Dragons – 0 You – 25+, realizing YOU already have what you need to achieve WITHIN you. If you reach out to those around you, contribute and accept their assistance, then you can do great things, which you wouldn’t do on your own.

OR are YOU going crazy round and round up and down, STILL finding yourself in the same place with the same thoughts as where you begun when you wake up outside the Rabbit Hole?

“I cant tell you right now what the moral of that is, but I shall remember it in a bit” “Perhaps it hasn’t one” Alice ventured to remark.“Tut, tut, child!” said the Queen. “Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find itAlice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll

 YES people its YOUR DECISION are you walking down the Yellow Brick Road step by step to Your Bliss?

OR falling down the Rabbit Hole into the safe known?

Week#17HJ The Art of Dying

The Art of Dying…

…dedicated to my Dad Milton David Dann 26.10.1932 – 04.12.2008

OUR Vices

Our Old Habits and Beliefs…

We are built to cling to life, unless that instinct is withered in us through long suffering, extreme altruism or despair, and so when we read about the deaths of other people, we are moved partly because we start imagining our own: the pain of leaving the people we love, and their confusion at our departure. Or we think of the helplessness of watching someone we love slipping beyond our reach. The notion of death is so mysterious and enormous that, in many cases, it seems easier just to lock it away, although it has a way of escaping and sneaking up on our peripheral vision. By Jenny McCartney

The Mythical Phoenix

My Image of Death is liken to the Phoenix…A story my Dad used to read to me as a child about a glorious bird who had wings of vibrant colour that could fly higher than any other bird who when died would burst into flames and be re-born out of its ashes..How magical is that?

As I grew up from a child into a kidult, I then likened the phoenix to a way of ridding oneself of anything I did not want in my life anymore, I would preform Phoenix Fire Rituals I would do this in different ways…by writing all I wanted gone on the sides of a candle then lighting the candle and burning it till it was all melted, by writing on pieces of paper all my fears, worries anything I wanted to transmute into the positive and throw them into a fire…I would then see them in my mind reforming into the positive I wanted to manifest. Then now as an adult I am able to visualize myself bursting into flames and being re-born, re-invented ready to begin a new day…I am grateful to my Dad for introducing this Wonder-filled bird into my live so young R.I.P Daddy xxx

The Death Ritual…

…how it is performed in so many different ways in different countries, below in this picture is the celebration of the ‘Day of the Dead’ in Spanish…”Día de Muertos”  It is a time when families get together at the burial sites of ancestors passed to pray, remember and celebrate their lives and to support their spiritual journey…

Death-Ritual-1

One of my favorite authors Paulo Coelho writes a whole chapter on the Death Ritual in the Pilgrimage This is one book I make sure I re-read every year

“Still, being fragile creatures, humans always try to hide from themselves the certainty that they will die. They do not see that it is death itself that motivates them to do the best things in their lives. They are afraid to step into the dark, afraid of the unknown, and their only way of conquering that fear is to ignore the fact that their days are numbered. They do not see that with an awareness of death, they would be able to be even more daring, to go much further in their daily conquests, because then they would have nothing to lose- for death itself is inevitable.”
― Paulo Coelho The Pilgrimage

“Death is our constant companion, and it is death that gives each person’s life its true meaning.”

OUR Virtues

We are our own Hero’s and we will overcome any obstacles (dragons) that get in our way to achieve what ever we want in our lives…

and then there is Og Mandino…Scroll V

“I live this day as if it is my last. And what shall I do with this last precious day which remains in my keeping? First I will seal up the container of life so that not one drop spills itself upon the sand. I will waste not a moment mourning yesterdays misfortunes, yesterdays defeats, yesterdays aches of the heart, for why should I through good after bad?….”

To finish with a song…Die trying

YES we will Die Trying because we want to ‘Live Our Dream’ and Death is just another step into that journey…
