Is Life But a Dream?
Have you ever experienced that big sensation of wonder at how amazing your present circumstances seem?
You find yourself in a dreamy place; enjoying the company of pleasant people; sharing a meal of the most succulent qualities; laughing, loving, experiencing with all your senses. But then… you wake up.
It was so amazing, you do your darnedest to try to be still and fall asleep to go back. But alas, it isn’t to be.
Well, I am Awake!
ALL the things are coming together incredibly and I am WIDE AWAKE! I feel the feelings one may imagine someone would feel upon learning they have won the lottery, yet what I have found cannot be lost! So how did this happen? Chapter 3 of the Master Key System lays it all out concisely, and with experience I can attest that it works!
Step 1: Releasing Fear
In Chapter 3 of the Master Key System, Haanel states that the one archenemy of the Solar Plexus is fear. After all, non-resistant thought expands the Solar Plexus; resistant thought contracts it.
As we all know acting from a state of fear grants for ourselves a most non-expansive place from which to work. It requires extra unnecessary effort and results in meager outcomes at best.
The subconscious mind works from the Solar Plexus. It is automatic, doing what it is directed to do. And yet it is intelligent, creative and responsive to the conscious mind.
If the “watchmen at the gate”, which we learned last week is the conscious mind that directs the subconscious acts from a state of fear, then the subconscious is going to be impaired by the conscious acceptance of fear. As Haanel states,
“When fear is effectually and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and life!”
Step 2: Seeing What You Want
It is true! Our attitude of mind directly determines the experiences with which we shall meet. It is quite easy to see this demonstrated as our present year lends us plenty of opportunity to see our world from a wide spectrum of perspectives. Some view the world from a contracted space: if the right people were in office or if my kids weren’t stuck at home, or if businesses did (or didn’t!) force requirements on customers or if I was already independently wealthy.
ALL of these things are beyond our control on one hand, but are incredibly within our control simultaneously. How? By choosing the expansive perspective from which to view life!
“…if we expect nothing, we shall have nothing; if we demand much, we shall receive the greater portion.”
Look at the world through the filter of what you wish to grow more of in your life!
Step 3: Leaving the Methods, the HOW, to the Great Expert!
Haanel clearly states within the Master Key,
“…it is well to remember that it is not necessary to outline the method by which the subconscious will produce the results you desire.”
Indeed! The finite cannot inform the infinite, though we surely try, don’t we? We are simply to identify what we truly want; not how we are to obtain it.
The subconscious is the individual creative life force that is one with the universe. Once we relinquish the need to sort out our own ideas of how a thing is going to happen, watch out world! Ask me how I know!
Better yet, subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss a post, because I’m going to be sharing this amazing journey as I am experiencing it in future posts. And believe me; I tried it the contracted, limited, hard way first, so you do not need to!
For now, trust me: release the need to know how all that you want is going to come to you. Your job is just to desire it with a specific and clear mental picture as your focus!
