A great “aha” moment this week, for which I am truly grateful to everyone in the MKMMA, as you’re all part of my MKMMA journey!
From our MK Lesson 15-20, we learned (again) that “if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are exact…because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success.”
Words. Hmmmm. Well, OG’s writing style in Scroll 3 didn’t quite sit well with me, so I resolved to re-write any challenging passages in future scrolls. Soooooo, my mini Scroll 4 reads:
“I am nature’s greatest miracle
– rare and valuable
– with infinite potential
I am a sister to all – yet I am a unique creature.
I proclaim my uniqueness and the uniqueness of my services in the market place.
The miracle of my birth I extend beyond my birth,
[as I become…
“…the grandest version of the greatest vision I’ve ever had about myself.” (quote: Conversations with God, N.D. Walsch]
I am here on earth for a purpose
– to grow into a mountain
– not to shrink to a grain of sand.
I see all discouragements as great opportunities and I emerge victorious.”
[You could stop reading now if you’d like the short version of this blog – but then you wouldn’t know what the aha was ;-))]
And the aha?
The 5th last paragraph of Scroll 4:
“No beast, no plant, no wind, no rain, no rock, no lake had the same beginning as I, for I was conceived in love and brought forth with a purpose. In the past I have not considered this fact but it will henceforth shape and guide my life.”
Just a little challenge here, as I was not conceived in love. In fact, my mother tried to commit suicide by putting her head in a gas oven when she discovered she was pregnant with me. This is for information only – because this gets much more exciting very soon 😉
How to make sense of this little stumbling block? I looked to Haanel’s writing.
In MK Lesson 15-7, we learn that “All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth.” Do you see the connection with OG above? This is HUGE!!!
And 15-8 continues “That we reap what we sow is mathematically exact. We gain permanent strength exactly to the extent of the effort required to overcome difficulties.”
And, in MK 15-26: “…the all-important truth that a thought containing principle is vital and therefore contains life and consequently takes root, and eventually but surely and certainly displaces the negative thoughts, which by their very nature can contain no vitality, is one which seems to have been overlooked.”
15-27: “But this is a fact which will enable you to destroy every manner of discord, lack and limitation.”
15-28: “There can be no question but that he who ‘is wise enough to understand’ will readily recognize that the creative power of thought places an invincible weapon in his hands and makes him a master of destiny.”
So, those of you who happened to read my week 14 blog realize that I had the Fear / Paralysis Reflex (FPR for short) re-emerge over the holidays. You’ll notice I did not make the FPR “possessive!” The FPR emerges in utero at 5 weeks and, if all goes well, merges into the Moro (infant “startle”) reflex at about 12 weeks in utero. However, if there’s trauma in utero (gas oven, no pilot light = toxins = trauma), the FPR may not develop and become fully inhibited – in which case the FPR and Moro Reflexes can run like a pair of sub-programmes, triggering other primitive and postural reflexes throughout one’s life.
And because the FPR is a “withdrawal” reflex that emerges at the embryonic stage rather than at the fetal stage, the way the cells “protect” the embryo is to coat the cells with a hard protein covering. While these proteins “protect” the embryo, they also make it difficult for the cells to take in nutrients or expel toxins. Not an ideal situation.
The Fear/Paralysis Reflex is very often present in people who are hyper-shy, hyper-sensitive, have experienced trauma (whiplash, PTSD, stroke, illness) as well as in children Autism / Asperger’s, Sensory Processing Disorders, ADHD, Balance/Coordination challenges, all the Dys’s (dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, etc.), memory challenges, anxiety, etc.
Now, one of my challenges in my business has been to “choose a niche market” – you can see that there are MANY possibilities!!! Choosing “just one” niche was soooo difficult IN THE PAST. BUT TODAY, I GET IT!
Going back to OG’s 5th last paragraph: I was “brought forth with a purpose. In the past I have not considered this fact but it will henceforth shape and guide my life.” But what purpose?
We know that our best work reflects our life’s journey. Well, there have been a lot of traumas in my life and I think I got bogged down in the variety of these traumas and so my thinking was clouded.
With a little help from Haanel – the Intro to Part 15 – the LIGHT BULB WENT ON when, when he described the experiments with parasites that developed wings when their food/water source disappeared:
“Experiments such as these indicate that Omniscience as well as Omnipotence is omnipresent and that the tiniest living thing can take advantage of it in an emergency.”
Therefore, an “tiny” embryo experiencing an emergency in utero goes into “withdrawal” – and it’s a tad tricky to put yourself out in the world if you are being ruled by a Fear/Paralysis Reflex…hence my being attracted to the MKMMA programme!! Now, I know that at 64 years of age, I may find that the FPR resurfaces on occasion – yet doing my “work” has allowed peace and calm to become part of my life. This was something I’ve spent almost 65 years attempting to find.
What I now see clearly, is that my “niche market” is very specific – I serve people whose lives have been or are still affected by the Fear / Paralysis Reflex. Simple. One niche. Maybe a few different marketing campaigns down the road – yet it’s a clear area of focus for my business. That’s a huge relief, as it’s been a stumbling block in every business training I’ve ever taken!!! Thank goodness for our DMP’s. That gave me so much to work with. And today’s “ahah” has created a deeper understanding of how I choose to move forward in my work and in my life from now on.
And, finally, since we know the Law of Attraction is also the Law of Love, I would like to share with you the fact that, although I had never bonded with my natural mother (indeed I told her to leave my life when I was 9 years old), it was while I was teaching one of my classes on Integrating Childhood Reflexes (not the name of a modality) that I spontaneously, and for the first time in my life, felt a surge of love for my mother! And along with that came an understanding of how stressful her life must have been for her to have attempted to gas herself.
What an insight! What a gift! What a miracle that I obviously chose to put in sufficient effort as an embryo in order to “…gain permanent strength exactly to the extent of the effort required to overcome difficulties” and so be able to extend the miracle of my birth beyond today … to my Purpose.
Mahalo, from the bottom of my heart, to all of you who are part of this wondrous MKMMA journey!
