The Successful Warrior Is The Average Woman, With Laser-Like Focus
Yay!!! I’m back redoing the Master Key System class. I participated in this program in 2014 and it was life altering. This is the end of my first week and I’m ending it on a blissful note.
My homework required me that sit perfectly still for fifteen minutes. Perfectly Still. If my nose itched, I could not scratch it … I had to sit completely still. Now I normally meditate each morning so sitting still is not a novel concept for me. However on my first morning doing this exercise (which I’ve done before) every challenge that could arise …. did. My nose did itch, my eyes became dry and scratchy, I was interrupted, I had an urge to use the bathroom and my monkey mind was usually active.
As I sat and calmly observe myself , I rendered no judgement. I took no action. I did not talk to myself. I just observed myself from outside of myself.
To remove distress you must remove the cause and the cause is always within.
And the itch was forgotten. My eyelids lid open and close effortlessly. My uninvited guest mumbled, “oh so you’re not talking” and walked away and my bladder stopped accepting signals from my brain. And I was reminded of two things, one – I had truly gained control over my physical body. Because even though I have not done this exercise in quite a while …. I slid into it effortlessly.
According to the Master Key System, if you cannot control your body you will never control your mind. Well guess what? …. Big Grin coming on …. I can control my body. Whoo Hoo!!!
And secondly, the initial issues I experienced at the beginning of my sit were all my doings. Yup, I had to take responsibility. To be honest I had thoughts running through my head of things that could go wrong while I was sitting quietly. What came to mind was an experience I had from my first master mind session. When I mentioned to someone what was required of me, she proceeded to tell me of all the things that would prevent her from accomplishing such a feat … in detail. So even though my conscious mind said … so she’s a loser, what does that have to do with me? …. my subconscious adsorbed her belief system and aligned it with my doubts. And voila, I created the perfect sh*t storm for myself.
