Master Key Mastermind – Week 11

December 6, 2021 tp December 12, 2021

This week’s lesson talks about the idea that what we desire we are to believe it has already been fulfilled and its manifestation will occur. The exercise has us concentrate on that idea as expressed in the Bible quotation, “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.”

That appears to be the reasoning behind the exercise of writing a press release, a look back from the future after our desire has been realized. So many of the exercises in the MKE are to give extra energy to the habits that are forming. This is all for my benefit, so why is my old blueprint resisting so much?

Master Key Mastermind – Week 10

November 29, 2021 to December 5, 2021

There was no regular Sunday webinar this week. It was the Sunday at the end of Thanksgiving weekend. I have been working on this post for two weeks. It is overdue and making later posts overdue. I have had a mental block or writer’s block of some sort.

A new scroll, scroll 3, has begun. Its main point is persistence. One of the main principles of success is to persist until success is achieved. Thomas Edison embodied this principle as an inventor. “I have not failed 10,000 times, “ he said, “I’ve successfully found 10,000 ways that will not work.” I remember as a little girl my mother praising my perseverance. Somewhere along the way, I stopped persevering so much. I’m not sure how or why, exactly, but I am motivated to restore that (good) habit. And scroll 1 says that good habits are the secret to success .

In lesson ten, Haanel again mentions “Master Key.” Here it is the the law that brings all things into manifestation. That thought has the power to correlate with its object and bring it into the visible world.

Master Key Mastermind – Week 9

November 22, 2021 to November 28, 2021

In lesson nine Haanel writes that there are only three things to be desired – health, wealth and love – and the way to find them or bring them into your life is to visualize them. Visualization is the Master Key to manifesting one’s desires.

As with any skill, visualization is mastered through practice and repetition. It is a result of the imagination. The more details that one can imagine and incorporate into the visualization, the more powerful it is and the more likely it is to become a physical reality.

Two of the three desires are my personal pivotal needs (PPNs) for the Master Key Experience and are part of my definite major purpose (DMP). They are interconnected and overlap because our lives are not compartmentalized into just health, just wealth and just love. So, some of the images on the movie poster help me to visualize multiple desires simultaneously.

I love the idea of combinations of modes of learning! It is fun to think of different ways to combine the different learning methods together.

Master Key Mastermind – Week 8

November 15, 2021 to November 21, 2021

I am still working on that seven day mental diet. One can’t expect to turn a large ship on a dime. I live in a major urban area and find one of the hardest parts of the day to banish negative thoughts is my commute to and from work. Many of the drivers, cyclists and pedestrians here do not seem to know the basic rules of the road. That increases the level of alertness needed for even a short trip. The stories I could tell of the outrageous “stunts” I have observed. Anyway, I find myself thinking many negative thoughts on my way to and from work. I have had more difficulty finding a positive thought to replace the negative thought in these situations.

The MKE readings and habits have helped to replace many negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Over time I have noticed a gradual shift in my general outlook. I expect this trend to continue, especially as my desires become manifest.

Master Key Mastermind – Week 7

November 8, 2021 to November 14, 2021

“It is the thoughts you allow yourself to think, the subjects that you allow your mind to dwell upon, which make you and your surroundings what they are.” – Emmet Fox

I have come across this idea before in the form of using positive affirmations to enact positive changes in one’s life. However, those instances were not as thorough as the Master Key Experience is. The bombardment of one’s subconscious from every direction and every form of stimulation leaves the subconscious no choice whatsoever but to implement one’s heartfelt desire.

I have experienced the opposite of what Emmet Fox proposes – a negative environment caused by negative thoughts – and so I do believe that what he proposes is also true. I am determined to accomplish what he calls a “seven day mental diet.” Besides our minds being programmed for millenia to recall negative experiences in order to survive, my life has been shaped by negative experiences. Although I don’t focus on them, they have affected in a fundamental way how I live my life and how I perceive the world. This will be a challenge. I enjoy challenges.

Master Key Mastermind – Week 6

November 1, 2021 to November 7, 2021


It’s all about connections, connections of seemingly unrelated items. Connecting shapes and colors to certain goals. And then creating different versions of one’s goals – a long, detailed one, a shorter one with just highlights, one looking back from the future at the goals accomplished, and one that is mostly in visual form on a poster. Placing copies of those versions in places where one spends time and sees them.


Repeatedly reading and speaking some of these versions every day, while visualizing and imprinting the images in one’s mind. Repeating the messages to one’s subconscious mind. The exercises are repeated every day. Reading the master key lesson and doing the exercise contained in it. Reading the scroll three times; once aloud. Reading the blueprint builder aloud. Reading the definite major purpose, in its different forms.

Master Key Mastermind – Week 5

October 25, 2021, to October 31, 2021

This week has been a real challenge. I’m supposed to write a press release based on my definite major purpose (DMP) except my definite major purpose is nowhere near being acceptable to the powers that be. At the rate of one turnaround a week, it might not ever be ready. I am trying to make the requested revisions, but I am not a wordsmith. Words are not my thing. That could be a problem considering that “…accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success.”

Already the DMP has morphed from an ideal vision of one’s life to a set of S.M.A.R.T. goals. Are these goals supposed to be short-term or long-term? Are they supposed to be achievable in the time frame of the Master Key Experience? What if my vision of my ideal life or the set of goals it has become is not achievable in six months?

Am I supposed to provide intentions or methods for the subconscious mind? Isn’t the subconscious mind supposed to figure out the methods necessary to achieve the intentions? I keep being asked for more details. I provide them and am told there must be more details. What kind of details? I am not trying to be difficult. I just don’t understand what they are asking for. The format being used is not really a two-way communication format, which adds to my frustration.

Master Key Mastermind – Week 4

October 18, 2021 to October 24, 2021

This week has been something of a rollercoaster ride. First, I thought I was making progress on my definite major purpose (DMP). However, this week it was critiqued by a substitute guide and essentially sent me back to square one. Should I continue to tweak what I have or completely rewrite it? Part of this week’s exercise is to “mentally let go of all adverse conditions, such as hatred, anger, worry, jealousy, envy, sorrow, trouble or disappointment of any kind.” So, I will let go of the negative feelings I have about that response and then determine the answer to my question.

The rest of the repetitions and readings are going fine. The materials and ideas are continuing to sink in to my subconscious mind and affect my outward actions. I am making sure to do everything I have promised. This builds and reinforces the concept of manifestation of my thoughts.

Master Key Mastermind – Week 3

October 11, 2021 to October 17, 2021

The repeated tasks are continuing to impress upon my subcounscious mnd. This week a new minor task was chosen for the “chore” card. I learned from last week to find a very easy chore to complete and I finished it on Monday. I continued to read the chore after I finished it and felt good that I had completed it. A summary of my current goals must be added to the other card. It is becoming more of a routine to do the daily readings and the other required tasks of the program.

The Master Key lesson for this week talks about the physical connection between the conscious and subconscious minds. How the vagus nerve runs from the brain to the solar plexus and connects the two. The term “solar plexus” comes from the Latin words ‘solaris’ and ‘plectere’ which mean “of or from the sun” and “to braid,” respectively. The name came about because of the appearance of the radial network of nerves seems like the rays of the sun. The solar plexus is also likened to the sun because it radiates energy. The exercise for this week continues to build upon the exercises of the previous weeks. It adds relaxation to keeping still, quiet and inhibiting one’s thoughts. Relaxation enables the solar plexus to function optimally.

The other significant addition this week was the association of S.M.A.R.T. goals to my life goals. S.M.A.R.T. stands for smart, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely. So, this week saw a pretty significant rewrite of my goals since they weren’t in SMART form. And I needed to focus them into two specific areas that are important to me at this time. As a character in an old TV show used to say, “I love it when a plan comes together!”

Master Key Mastermind – Week 2

October 4, 2021 to October 10, 2021

In the second week the repetitive tasks from the first week continue and new tasks are added. As I am continuing to read the passages two or three times a day, they are beginning to become familiar. I am sure they are beginning to embed themselves in my subconscious. This week two index cards were added to the items to be repeatedly read or acknowledged. One has a minor task that I promise to complete sometime during the week. The other card has a command on it that I repeat 25 times twice a day.

The Master Key lessons include exercises. The first week’s exercise was to sit still for 15-30 minutes. One could let their mind wander. This was to develop control over one’s body. This week’s exercise builds upon last week’s. One is to remain still and inhibit all thought. This is to develop control over one’s thoughts. Initially for most people, this will only be possible for a few moments because most people have a continuous stream of 50,000 to 70,000 conscious thoughts per day. Whew!

While I am committed to this program, it has been challenging to complete all of the tasks required. Part of this is my subconscious mind resisting change. My conscious mind wants this change to happen. So, I will continue to complete the tasks as best I can. I am looking forward to changing my subconscious mind’s default assumptions.
