Educational & Specialized Kinesiology Instructor / Practitioner - IntegratingChildhoodReflexes.com - for Autism, SPD, PTSD, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Performance Anxiety - creating new freedom in the lives of children, seniors and performers. I see clients when I travel to teach in communities across Canada. I also work with clients via Skype. As a Performer (chamber music, opera, oratorio, orchestral harp), Teacher (harp / singer) & Performance Coach, I was invited to teach part of the University of Toronto's "Advanced Studies in Performance" for the University's Graduate students in Music Performance, prior to moving back to the West Coast. I've created a workshop for singers, called "Switched on Singing - the Power of Voice" which I've presented at the International Brain Gym Gathering as well as for community choirs and professional singers across Canada. I've always included kinesiology techniques in my personal performance preparations, as well as in my music teaching. It's wonderful seeing a young performer who had been terrified of auditions prior to our session, come away with a small comprimario role and understudying the leading female role for one of Canada's largest theatre companies. The work is amazing and I delight in seeing my students and clients shine their light upon the world's stages.

Masterkeywendyht – Week 20 – Peace, Love & Joy Always All Ways

Aloha!  It’s been a few weeks since my last post, yet I’ve been reading and commenting on blogs that I’ve been following since the beginning of the 2015-16 programme.  Such wonderful changes I’ve been witnessing in each of you!!

I’ve managed to download a copy of The Master Keys and will look at the official Chapter 20 later this week.  In the meantime, I’ve read OG’s Scroll VI and once again was taken aback by the language.  I’ve spent the last 24 years attempting to get to a place where Peace, Joy and Love can prevail, including in my language. Scroll VI definitely needs a re-write for me.  When I’m ill, I will work harder just is not logical.  For me, it’s important that one pays attention to one’s health and, when necessary, take a wee break, so that one does not get sick – or, if illness strikes, take a break so that you can then come back to double your efforts “in a healthy state!”

So, in place of the rather Yang language regarding the “opposites” found in OG’s Scroll VI, I went searching and now peacefully offer up some quotes from Book  3 of Neale Donald Walsch’s “Conversations with God” book – in particular, the information about emotions and the polarity between emotions.

As we’ve heard all along the MKMMA programme, love and fear are opposites.

Walsch’s book states that there are “5 natural emotions: grief, anger, envy, fear, and love…yet love and fear are the basis of all emotions.  The other three of the five natural emotions are outgrowths of these two.”

“Ultimately, all thoughts are sponsored by love or fear.  This is the great polarity.  This is the primal duality.  All thoughts, ideas, concepts, understandings, decisions, choices, and actions are based in one of these.
And, in the end, there is really only one.
Love.
In truth, love is all there is.  Even fear is an outgrowth of love, and when used effectively, expresses love.”

A question is raised:  Does the parent who saves the child from being killed in traffic express fear, or love?
The answer is obviously, both…”Fear for the child’s life, and love – enough to risk one’s own life to save the child.”

The Conversation continues…”Precisely.  And here we see that fear in its highest form becomes love…is love…expressed as fear.
Similarly, moving up the scale of natural emotions, grief, anger, and envy are all some form of fear, which, in turn, is some form of love….
The problem comes in when any of the five natural emotions become distorted.”

Later on, discussing the difference between

– strength and power,
– separation vs. unity, and
– lies vs. truth,

Walsch’s conversation with God describes the transition from humans originally living in a matriarchal society to living in a patriarchal society.  It is put forward that…
“Power comes from inner strength.  Inner strength does not come from raw power.  In this, most of the wold has it backwards.
“Power without inner strength is an illusion.  Inner strength without unity is a lie.
A lie that has not served the [human] race, but that has nevertheless deeply embedded itself into your race consciousness.  For you think that inner strength comes from individuality and from separateness, and that is simply not so.  Separation from God and from each other is the cause of all your dysfunction and suffering.  Still, separation continues to masquerade as strength, and your politics, your economics, and even your religions have perpetuated the lie.
This lie is the genesis of all wars and all the class struggles that lead to war; of all animosity between races and genders, and all power struggles that lead to animosity…”

“I tell you this:  Heal te rift between you , end the illusion of separation, and you shall be delivered back to the source of your inner strength.  That is where you will find true power.  The power to do anything.  The power to be anything.  The power to have anything.  For the power to create is derived from the inner strength that is produced through unity…
“Stop thinking of yourself as separate, and all the true power that comes from the inner strength of unity is yours – as a worldwide society, and as an individual part of that whole – to wield as you wish.”

It’s interesting that when we were told to memorize that we are “whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” I just couldn’t do it – nope, not once!!!  I was completely mind boggled.  Here was I, a classical singer who learned and memorized (and learned the staging for) the lead role in an opera in 7 days and performed it live the next day – and I couldn’t memorize 7 words!!!

I knew that I was struggling with the words “strong” and “powerful” and NOW I realize that I was coming from that patriarchal world where strength is “individual strength and power over others.”  As someone who’s been abused in various ways from my early childhood onward, I knew I’d given up my power to my abusers…be they class mates or family members…and I certainly did not want to feel that I was meant to wield that kind of strength and power over others.  Quite an “ah-ha!!”

Nevertheless, my sentence is now  “I am whole and perfect, encouraging and empowering of others, peaceful and loving, happy and harmonious.”

Such a journey – even from outside the programme ;-))

The week before everyone went on their “3 days of silence” exercise, I’d spent 7 days and then 3 days in silence!  My husband was away on a  business trip, so  with no Seamus (dog) to keep me company, I simply turned off the the computer, which I use for business, for listening to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (even though I’m Canadian and live in British Columbia), and for watching Knowledge Network (BC’s version of PBS) and Youtube.  I Loved the SILENCE 🙂  My hubby was home for 2 days before going away for another 3 days, so that was a good introduction to living with another thinking, speaking human being, before having yet another respite in Silence for 3 more days ;-))  I wish everyone great delight in their Silence!

Great things are happening for me!   I’ve just made a new connection who has given me guidance as to how I can best approach the Chief of the Sheshalh Nation about co-creating an Emotional Healing Centre for Survivors of Residential Schools, which is my DMP (Definite Major Purpose).  I’ve been reading their website and recognize that it’s important to make that centre a place for training other consultants and instructors, as well as for individual and group healing sessions.  That just feels so RIGHT!

And, while I’m not financially able to travel to Houston, TX this Thursday to take the 2 day Level 3 Teacher Training for the Rhythmic Movement Training Int’l programme on Integrating Childhood Reflexes, I know that something better will come of this.  I’m actually still open to miracles, even at this late date, as it would be wonderful to be able to be a level 3 instructor for Canada – the exchange rate does make it expensive to bring an American or an Australian Level 3 instructor  😉

Also, people have begun to refer their friends who have chronic pain – both emotional and physical – to me for Skype sessions across the globe!  And, somehow (hmmm, perhaps due to MKMMA training??) I’m finding it so much easier to talk to others about my work.  As a result, I’m finding some very key people in our small string of communities along the Sunshine Coast of BC for whom I’m providing some sessions for Fibromyalgia, MS, Autism, Alzheimer’s, severe learning challenges, Dyspraxia, and more.  And, I have people coming down from the Yukon Territory to take my SIPS Kinesiology Level 1 class at the end of the month and SIPS 1&2 in late May – and there may be a couple of others joining us too.  All this, right here on the Sunshine Coast!!!

I feel so blessed to be doing my work from home and also in other spaces on the Sunshine Coast.  Please know I’m drawing inspiration from all of you with much gratitude!  And, needless to say, I’m greeting each day, each of you, and everyone I meet each day with love in my heart.  I am in the flow!!  Great things are happening!  I am whole and perfect, encouraging and empowering of others, peaceful and loving, happy and harmonious!

Mahalo, Wendy Humphreys Tebbutt (wendyht)

masterkeywendyht – WEEK 19 – Parallel Ideas Whose Time Have Come

Aloha.  I’ve posted, in earlier blogs, some positive inspirational quotes from Ghandi that offered ideas that were parallel to the ideas of  the MKMMA programme.  As I’m working from outside the MKMMA programme, I’d like to quote some words of wisdom from Abraham-Hicks which I’m finding very inspiring and quite parallel with the Haanel and Og writings.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I have…

DAILY QUOTE – 15 feb 2016
When you continue to ask the question, you continue to practice the vibration of the question, which is different than the vibration of the answer. But when you quiet your mind, so that you are no longer keeping the question active, then the answer can come to you. Because you are not holding yourself in the tension of the unanswered question.
—Abraham
Excerpted from: Orlando, FL on January 11, 2014

What we focus on, we become, through the Law of Attraction.  I found this Daily Quote to be quite profound.  And, of course, it speaks to the power of the “daily SIT!”

DAILY QUOTE – 16 feb 2016
Meditation is a powerful tool. If we were standing in your physical shoes, we would meditate on a regular basis for the sweet relief of a quiet mind. There is no better way of stopping the momentum of something unwanted, and to allow the momentum of something wanted, than to meditate—other than getting a full night’s sleep.
—Abraham
Excerpted from: Orlando, FL on January 11, 2014

For me, this is about meeting challenges – and last week, I believe I commented on someone’s blog post that my new fun way to face a challenge is as follows:
Take the CH of ‘challenge’ and the OP of ‘opportunity’ and give a nice karate CHOP to the challenge – toss the pieces down the garbage chute (E. Fox’s idea).  I’ve been mulling this idea over in my mind and have now added the following:
Then, I move my arms into a sphere above my head and sing R Murray Schafer’s “O Sun Father, Light of the World.  I come to you.  I sing to you.  My spirit soars.  I am One With You.”  This may be done aloud or silently – and because it uses my voice, which is part of my being and my soul; and my arms; and music; and a Hero’s Stance (forehead back & arms raised as in “surrender to the wolf” – perhaps representing “detachment” from the HOW of manifesting the opportunity or one’s DMP); it’s a pretty powerful way to effect change in the moment.    And, of course, there’s more on the “daily SIT!”

DAILY QUOTE – 17 feb 2016
When you wake up in the morning, the cells of your body have pushed the reset button. And if you don’t reintroduce negative beliefs that you have about your body or about your ability, as soon as you wake up—then you have a fresh start.
—Abraham
Excerpted from: Orlando, FL on January 11, 2014

Again, it’s what we focus our thoughts on that we attract into our life.  This idea of a fresh start reminds me of what I say to singing students…that it’s important to feel “buoyant” and “scintillating” in order to have the energy to sing.  I talk about this in terms of helping students “place” their voice in the “mask of the face.”  Most students will, under stress, resort to placing their singing  voice where they would in speech.  In the English language, that tends to mean coming from the “surgical mask” rather than from the (ideal) “party mask!”  The party mask is up in the area of the sinuses – where the voice can actually resonate well and without effort.  Substitute negative and positive thoughts/beliefs for the surgical and party masks.  And how can one transition from the surgical mask up to the party mask?  Think of bouncing on a trampoline!  It takes only one bounce to take you up into the “party mask” – in a heart beat!  It’s impossible to stay heavy or dull when you’re bouncing on a trampoline…it’s pure joy!

DAILY QUOTE – 18 feb 2016
**When you are exploring contrast, we want you to remind yourself: I am not doing something wrong standing in this contrasting place. I am doing something leading edge. I am doing something more refining. I am doing something more specific. I am not standing in a wrong place. I am standing in a right place.
—Abraham
Excerpted from: Orlando, FL on January 11, 2014

In other blogs, I’ve mentioned that for years I’d said that “I always seemed to be in the right place at the wrong time.”  For me, this is about knowing that the Law of Substitution takes us to a “right place” – with a single “CHOP!”

DAILY QUOTE – 19 feb 2016
Of course, you are enjoying your personal desires and preferences, because that’s what you signed on for. You said, “I will focus into a physical body! I will explore! I will be inspired to improvement—constant, never-ending, personal improvement and expansion! And once I have identified a desire, I will focus purely in a non-resisted way, upon it. I will not let old beliefs deny my new desire.
—Abraham
Excerpted from: Boca Raton, FL on January 18, 2014

Is that not the core of the MKMMA programme?  Being inspired to improve oneself constantly – even after your 26 weeks in the programme.  And to identify a desire – one’s DMP (Definite Major Purpose) – and focus all energies towards one’s DMP, allowing all challenges and negative thoughts or beliefs to fall away…allowing the cement to fall away in order to reveal the golden Buddha that is at the heart of each of us.

Mahalo for being here, for growing as a person.

Have Courage…be Brilliant…SHINE!

Yours in Gratitude, Light & Love, Peace & Joy

masterkeywendyht – WEEK 18 – I’m In The Flow

I’ve so enjoyed reading and commenting on everyone’s blog posts – I’m learning so much just from doing that activity 🙂

Some of the MKMMA members wondered if I’d be OK or be able to keep up the work when being outside the alliance.  I seem to be IN THE FLOW, so my thanks for all of your caring concerns 🙂

I’m realizing that I required time to work on the logistics of my business – of creating the documents I would send to online or live clients.  Since stepping out MKMMA, I’ve been receiving  enquiries for online sessions  and I’m feeling very good about them.  They’re a win-win situation in that people can work from the comfort of their home, rather than driving long distances – or me having to drive long distances and take a 40 minute ferry and basically leaving home 3 hours before the beginning of a first session or the beginning of a class!

How else am I in the flow?

1. I read, comment on, and am inspired by mkmma blogs every day.
2. I’ve created the time for my daily “sit” – something I had not accomplished while I was still active within the MKMMA.  I had a really great sit after working on a neighbour’s little dog last night after the turkey dinner our neighbour made for my  hubby and I as a “thank you” for our computer / specialized kinesiology services.  While the “chef” and my husband continued working on the computer crash, dog and I sat together on the floor after his session and I took advantage of the quiet to do a lovely long meditate.  It was heavenly!!
3. With having travelled by plane a lot this past Fall, luggage weight was an issue, so I folded everything up to become that “functional bookmark” (such a great idea, Mark J).  I had slipped into my old blueprint a bit when unpacking, so my “pages” were not always filed away the binder right away.  There’s now a place for my MKMMA material, so that makes me very happy 🙂
4. I’m doing my own brain – body – sensory – motor integration exercises every day, which was something I’d found harder and harder to find time to do while in MKMMA.  Since that my actual “work” too, that had become a big stressor for me.  I use Mark’s “Do it NOW!” when doing the reflex integration activities that are the ones I most need and least like to do ;-))
5. I’m trading online sessions with a colleague who has several of the modalities I have in my practice, so that’s very beneficial.  She was delighted with her session today – and saw for the first time how our work can be done via Skype or Facetime 🙂  Lots of sharing went on, too, so I’m thrilled to be receiving my first Facetime session with her on Wednesday this week.
6. I’ve gone back to MKMMA basics and am happily adding music to my “Do it NOW!” and “I’m in the FLOW” (the latter is to the tune of  “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” :-))  What FUN!
7. I’ve found old newspaper clippings I’d saved which, together with new articles, have given me ideas for how to make contact with the Sheshalh Nation regarding my DMP of creating a Centre for Emotional Healing – for the survivors of the Residential Schools.  Many articles from the web have also appeared and I can see how these articles will help inform how I approach the Sheshalh people.  Someone’s blog also mentioned the difference between healing the Traumatic Experience and healing the Traumatic Belief that arose from the Traumatic Experience.  Whoever wrote that – Mahalo!  That may have changed the way I approach working with PTSD clients!
8. And, I’ve decided to return to my week 1 Virtue on my Franklin activity – organization.  That was one of the main reasons I felt I had to step away from the MKMMA, with only 9 weeks to go.  Yet, that was 9 more weeks in which my husband would have to wait for our home to begin to be decluttered.  Last evening, in my “sit” beside my “dog client” (who had been a buddy of my dog, Seamus, who had to be put to sleep 4 months ago yesterday), I realized that ever since we buried Seamus under his favourite tree in the front garden, I’d been burying my hubby and I with clutter.  So, ORGANIZATION it is for the next month, one youthful step at a time 😉  And I’ve decided that “I greet this day with LOVE in my heart” and “Looking for, seeing, giving and receiving KINDNESS” are always going to be paired with my current Franklin Virtue – and that the Virtue will be experienced for 2-4 weeks at a time.  With the Logic brain being the happy brain and the Gestalt brain being the Sad brain – and with my early preference for Gestalt brain activities – the Sad view of life were the habit.  I’m planning to immerse myself in these Virtues for longer than one week, so that I can really incorporate them easily within my continued 7 day (positive) mental diet.
9. I’ve been saying for years that I’ll get to bring harp playing into my life again.  2 of my students are now at a level of playing where we can play harp ensemble works.  We’ve had 2 such harp ensemble afternoons thus far.  This coming Friday, my students are taking me out for lunch to celebrate my 65th birthday and then we’re going to spend the afternoon playing harp together.  How beautiful is that?

An Abraham-Hicks inspirational quote for 15 February 2016, which is very MKMMA, and which I shared with one of my clients today, read:

“When you continue to ask the question, you continue to practice the vibration of the question, which is different than the vibration of the answer. But when you quiet your mind, so that you are no longer keeping the question active, then the answer can come to you. Because you are not holding yourself in the tension of the unanswered question.”

Mahalo to the person i MKMMA who introduced me to the Abraham-Hicks website.  And, Mahalo to everyone for your inspirational blog posts and Tweets this week.  I’ve learned so much and I am most grateful.  I trust you’ll enjoy the A-H (ah 🙂 quote above as a show of my love and gratitude to everyone in the MKMMA.

Yours in Gratitude, Light & Love, Peace & Joy

Week 17c – wendyht – still blogging & following my blogging buddies in MKMMA

Aloha everyone.  I’ve had people Tweet me and they seemed so concerned because I’d left the programme.  Since 102 people were “following” my blog posts, I thought I would write an extra blog this week – to hopefully put your minds at rest re my “overwhelm” and my decision to step out of the programme.  Leaving you, my blog buddies, was the most difficult part of stepping out of the programme, because you felt like a “family of choice” for me.  That was a huge thing for me, as “family” had always been a stressful word for me.  So, I trust that the following will give you some re-assurance…

 

Since my work – actually my “life’s work” – is brain-body-sensory-motor integration, I do have a consultant/instructor’s understanding of my “overwhelm.”  Putting that understanding together with the fact that my business must now support the household, and having had a trauma occur over Christmas, and noticing that my own brain integraton was not where it was before the trauma, it really was necessary for me to step away from being “active” in the MKMMA programme at a less than optimal level.

I recognized that it was important for me to do some of my own brain-body-sensory-motor integration work on myself, to overcome the effects of the trauma, and so to begin creating ways for my business to flourish NOW.

I’m still “doing” MKMMA – I’m still using the tools I have from MKMMA – from outside the programme for now.  I’m simply doing the work slower and more thoroughly for my brain/nervous system, and more meaningfully and “honestly” for my self-esteem.  I am a very conscientious person, though less of a perfectionist as a result of MKMMA, and I took Mark’s words to heart about it being more honourable to step away now rather than to continue on while giving less that 100% to the programme.

Mark is very wise.  I’m now doing my brain integration work for myself and with the assistance of my hubby, on a daily basis.  I’m working with my DMP to create work, locally, with First Nations people traumatized by the Residential School system, and creating a second DMP for my client work via Skype and webinars.

There was much trauma in the first 30 years of my, now 65 year old, life – so if I feel a need to sit with certain components or chapters of the MKMMA programme, in order to get the good of its teachings, then that is what I am now allowing myself to do.  My school years, even as a B average student, were characterized by terror as the school system did not teach in a way that honoured, served or even recognized my learning style.  No one knew how terrified I was.  I hid it well.  So, for me, this stepping away from the “structure” of MKMMA is to actually allow myself the time to really DO the MKMMA work at a pace that HONOURS MY LEARNING STYLE and so to actually be able to REAP the BENEFITS of the MKMMA work.  My old blueprint would have carried on blindly, feeling buffeted about by life, the programme, and my confusion.  That had to stop if I truly was to get the good of this programme.  I can always re-apply  in September, with the habits of the cards, the poster, the compass, the sits already ingrained as part of my life.  I’ve been the Hare all my life.  I’m now allowing my Turtle self to emerge and enjoy the journey…in True Health and Inner Calm.

My heart is still with you all – supporting you all – and I’m able to take the time to hold each and everyone of you in my heart as I read your blog posts.  Mahalo for all I have learned, and will continue to learn, from each of you…my blog buddies and Lorelei my wondrous, luminous MKMMA guide.

Yours in Gratitude, Light & Love, Peace & Joy Always – All Ways – wendyht

Moving on to Scroll V – 5 feb 2016

Because Mark said we would “love” Scroll V, I opened my GS with excitement to read  Scroll V; yet, I immediately felt a need to re-write and create a “precis” of Og’s Scroll V.

As part of my work, I teach people to be mindful of their language and to do their very best to release the need to use words that may imply stress or effort (negative effort, as opposed to diligent work).  I had begun to feel challenged by Og’s language in Scroll III and then more so in Scroll IV…to the point where I wrote my first precis of an Og Scroll.  I was reeling from the Scroll 5 language!  Still, knowing that this was written a good while ago, I chose to continue to seek the kernal (or should I say “gold” nugget) of Og’s teaching in this new Scroll.  With respect, here is my precis of Scroll V, which I will read several times a day.

I greet this sunrise with cries of joy and lift up mine arms in gratitude for this gift of a new day. Each hour of this day I do cherish, for its value is beyond price. Today, I lift up a friend in need…acting in faith and confidence…empowering and encouraging her to reach her full potential…while proving my own love for all humanity and extending the miracle of my birth to the last hour and last minute of this day. I promise to make this the best day of my life…savouring fully my ability to effect powerful and positive change in this world every minute of every hour of this glorious day.

MASTERKEYWENDYHT – BLOG – WEEK 17 HERO’S JOURNEY – signing off “in Honour”

I’m trusting that my signing off is from Grief rather than from Denial. In any case, I’ve been unable to get myself caught up to the point where I can actually be experiencing the MKMMA programme 100% on a daily basis. So, I’m signing off, as Mark said, “in Honour.”

I plan to go back to the beginning of our MKMMA material and work through the material at a pace that I can handle while also spearheading “Integrating Childhood Reflexes” (particularly the integration of the Fear/Paralysis Reflex) to Canada and beyond.

I would like to thank Mark J, the Fabulous Davene, Trish, the wonderful guides and our Digital Connections team, LindaSue88 for introducing me to the MKMMA programme in September, AND each and every one of the members of the MKMMA for your wisdom, your willingness to share with others, your inspiration, your creativity, for making this programme so wonderful…and for the 102 of you who have followed my blog. Please know that I’ll continue to send you much love and encouragement for your journey to the end of the 2015-16 MKMMA programme.

For me, the programme simply developed too quickly at a time when I was completely exhausted from my travels across Canada teaching and doing private sessions over the Fall. I did my best – yet did not maintain 100% once the additional activities were added.  So, a special thank you to my wonderful guide, Lorelei, who this past week gave me some great suggestions for how to find a way to get back on track with the programme. I’ll use her wisdom when I get to the point of adding all the extra activities – which was where I stumbled.

I’ll miss the experience of the Alliance – reading everyone’s comments, questions and blogs – you’ve been incredibly inspiring for me.  I feel that if I’m truly to experience the MKMMA programme fully, it’s better that I sign off from the 2015-16 session in honour, now. I know I can I find and use my creativity for the extra activities if I simply slow down so I can smell the roses while I work my way through the programme on my own this time. And, if I’m accepted back into the programme next September, I feel this additional work on my own will make all the difference to the way I work through the 2016-17 programme.

Blessings and Mahalo to one and all.

Yours in Gratitude, Light & Love Wendy Humphreys Tebbutt

MASTERKEYWENDYHT – WEEK 17 – BLOG – CONCENTRATING ON THE REALITIES OF LIFE

In the introduction to Lesson 17, Haanel tells us that, “The student who masters the contents of Part 17…will be interested in causes, rather than effects. He will concentrate on the realities of life, and will then not be disappointed in the results.”

In the Sunday webinar, the following pairs of words were discussed. I thought I’d add some Haanel and Og quotes to the words to make more connections for myself and others.

VISION & ACTION
17-3 “…true conceptions are only secured by spiritual insight [which] requires a quickening of the vibrations of the Mind, and is only secured when the mind is continuously concentrated in a given direction.”
17-13 “…ease and perfection are gained by repetition.” [Action]
17-25 “…fundamentally the subconscious is omnipotent; there is no limit to the things that can be done when it is given the power to act.”

HARMONY & FOCUS / CONCENTRATION & COURAGE
Only when we become so identified with the object of our thought that we are conscious of nothing else are we truly concentrating. And, as we concentrate, invisible forces are set in motion which irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence with our thought.
17-25 “Your degree of success is determined by the nature of your desire. If the nature of your desire is in harmony with Natural Law or the Universal Mind, it will gradually emancipate the mind and give you invincible courage.”

VIRTUE & ABUNDANCE
17-19 “Many of the sturdy and substantial virtues are developed in commercial employment; the mind is steadied and directed; it becomes efficient. The principal necessity is the strengthening of the mind so that it rises superior to the distractions and wayward impulses of instinctive life and thus successfully overcomes in the conflict between the higher and lower self.”
17-30 “…the man who has found the true source of power…is no longer interested in its [symbols of power] shams or pretensions.”

PURPOSE & IDEAL
17-27 “…A definite purpose sets causes in motion which go out in the invisible world and find the material necessary to serve your purpose.”
17-37 “Always concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact; this is…the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about the necessary relation, which eventually manifest in form.”

and Haanel also spoke of DESIRE & CONCENTRATION
17-6 “…you should be so interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon.”
17-7 “All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind…it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own.”

One other thing really spoke to me in the Sunday webinar – in the section on The Makeover and Observation – and that was “effortlessly drawing out our unique gifts” AND “knowing it’s a simple shift in focus within” that makes this effortlessness possible.   Brilliant!

Mark also let us know that, from past MKMMA experience, the difference between the people who manifested things easily and those who struggled to manifest was permission.

So, I give myself permission to powerfully manifest my Definite Major Purpose with ease, compassion and love, NOW. And, I’m sending out thoughts of success for each and every one of you to manifest your DMPs in a manner that is for your highest good and for the highest good of All That Is.   Mahalo.

MASTERKEYWENDYHT – WEEK 16 – BLOG – SUCCESS IS CONTINGENT UPON HAVING A HIGHER IDEAL FOR WHICH WE ARE WILLING TO STRIVE

Haanel explains that capital is an effect, not a cause; a servant, not a master; a means, not an end…and that the true value of wealth consists not in its utility but in its exchange, whereby our ideals may be realized.

We’re told that wealth should never be desired as an end, but rather as a means of accomplishing an end…and that success is contingent upon having a higher ideal for which we are willing to strive.

In 16-8, we’re told that the power to create depends entirely upon spiritual power and that there are 3 steps involved here: idealization, visualization and materialization. An example of someone who has manifested millions of dollars in his business admitted that the secret to his success was his power to see a thing in its completeness.

I’ve sometimes been a bit puzzled by what seems to be a dichotomy in terms of Haanel’s suggestions for visualizing.

For example, in previous chapters, Haanel encouraged us to be very specific in our visualizations…yet, in 16-28, he tells us that the process for creating change is simply to hold the ideal in mind, until our vision has been made real – giving no thought to persons, places or things, because these have no place in the absolute. He says the environment we desire will contain everything necessary, and that the right persons and the right things will come at the right time and in the right place. And this will happen naturally, as we realize our spiritual nature and our unity with the Universal Mind.  In the past, my Old Blueprint used to say I was in the right place at the wrong time.  No need to dwell on this.  However, I think the Universal Mind decided to show me that my New Blueprint is definitely int he right place at the RIGHT time!!!

In my blog last week, I had finally realized that I did actually have a single focus to my work: Assisting people in integrating their childhood reflexes, particularly the Fear/Paralysis Reflex, even though this can be retained in many different segments of the population. Well, within 15 hours of posting my blog, someone emailed me from another continent to ask if I could work with adults one-on-one and via skype. I was able to say “Yes” and we’ve begun the process of working together.

That was a pretty fast manifestation by the Universal Mind, so I’m definitely taking this as a sign that I’m on the right track here 😉 And this is definitely something I’m willing and happy to strive for – to bring to the information about the Fear/Paralysis Reflex to the world and to assist people in overcoming the challenges related to it.

Og Mandino’s writing in this month’s Scroll 4 states that we are here for a purpose; that we’re all brothers and sisters, yet we are each of us unique and that we are to proclaim this uniqueness when speaking of my services in the marketplace. It’s interesting that I often find myself encouraging my clients to recognize their Oneness with All That Is and also their uniqueness as an individual. Now, I realize that I will be letting them know that we are ALL Nature’s greatest miracle – that we are ALL rare and valuable – with infinite potential – each and every one of us.

I’m now envisioning all MKMMA members allowing our uniqueness to shine wherever we are, whatever our purpose for humanity. Mahalo for sharing this MKMMA journey.

Yours in Gratitude, Light & Love wendyht

MASTERKEYWENDYHT – WEEK 15 BLOG – Extending the Miracle of my birth beyond today-to my Purpose

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,
beyond today

[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!

MASTERKEYWENDYHT – WEEK 14 – BLOG – Thought Is The Only Reality

In Lesson 14, we learn there is “mind in every atom of the body,” called the negative or subconscious mind – subconscious because “it acts without our conscious knowledge.” And, “we have found that this subconscious mind is responsive to the will of the conscious mind.”

We see that “things in themselves have no origin, permanency, or reality” and since things “are produced by thought, they can be erased by thought.”

Haanel also says that we find that “every man is the reflection of the thought he has entertained during his lifetime.” He continues with “the objective world is controlled by an unseen power… the Infinite or Universal Mind” and that the “subconscious mind [is] the connecting link between the Universal Mind and the conscious mind.” And while “the conscious mind can consciously suggest thoughts which the subconscious mind will put into action…no limit can be placed upon its activities.”

Paragraph 24 states, “Yet there are many who are not ready to enter into the discipline necessary to think correctly, even though it is evident that wrong thinking has brought failure.”

Paragraph 25 then continues,”Thought is the only reality; conditions are but the outward manifestations; [and] as the thought changes, all outward or material conditions must change in order to be in harmony with their creator, which is thought.”

And yet, we are told that “the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable.”

And, most importantly, “If you enter into the discipline necessary to bring about a radical change in your life, you must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full consideration, and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision.”

“If you wish harmonious conditions in your life, you must develop an harmonious mental attitude”…so that…”Your world without will be a reflection of your world within.” Yet this will happen only if “you will be conscious of nothing but harmony.”

Our Christmas holiday went not at all as we would have consciously planned. Given that I forgot to put up any energetic boundaries prior to the visit, perhaps things were simply a painful reflection of the thoughts I entertained from previous Christmas seasons.  I went into Fear Paralysis Reflex mode for the 5 days over Christmas, yet I’m seeing now that the situation gave me the opportunity to speak my need that, in future, I would no longer put myself in that same situation. I believe we all deserve to have at least a peaceful Christmas and that the best way to accomplish this, in future, will be for me to remain home while my husband visits with his family.  A Fear Paralysis Reflex does love solitude, so this will not be a hardship. And THIS will allow me to “be conscious of nothing but harmony” – a wonderful way to end the old year and powerfully envision the new year.

We are told that “we learn by doing” and that “reading these lessons will get you nowhere. It is in the practical application that the value consists.”

I think that working with the MKMMA material, I felt empowered to find this practical solution to a very uncomfortable situation. I feel much more relaxed now – and I’m writing my blog at an English Country Dance evening on New Year’s Eve as a way of enjoying a social visit with our friends in Victoria. I’ll be able to get this into wordpress as soon as we return to our friends’ home and still make the midnight (Hawaii time) deadline.
George Mathew Adams suggests one “Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view.”

And, so, I promise to develop an harmonious mental attitude so that my “world without” will be a reflection of my “world within.” I further promise to create this by “being conscious of nothing but harmony” and by admitting only helpful, positive things into my mind and into my world.

With that, I wish you all Blwyddyn Newydd Dda (Welsh for “Happy New Year”) and I promise to assist in creating harmony for us all in MKMMA during 2016 and beyond. And I always keep my promises.
