Success in life hinges on your ability to control your thinking so it works for you not against you. Start by practicing stillness.
Whatever your present circumstances, you will start to experience small miracles as you do the Master Key meditations.
An important part of the Master Key wisdom is to show kindness and helpfulness to those around you. This goes hand in hand with time you spend in your meditations.
You will start to see small miracles right away. They may come as people reaching out to you with invitations and opportunities, and your interactions becoming more harmonious. New ideas and insights will bubble to the surface.
The Universal Intelligence is “on your side.” These small miracles come when you are on the path to a higher, harmonious consciousness.
You will find out that the way to get on this path is by resting your body, mind, ego, and self, rather than battling the array of circumstances that confront you on the physical plane.
The Second Meditation
Be comfortable and still for at least 15 minutes each day. Sometimes it takes more than 15 minutes to quiet your unruly mind, so it is best to chose a time of day when you don’t feel rushed because of other obligations. Do your meditation at a time when you can sit and wait until your racing brain finally catches up to your intention to sit quietly in the present stillness and invite the Abundant Universe to reveal itself to you.
Be motionless and release the tension in every muscle. The breathe may be deep or shallow, or both — whatever helps you relax. Then gain control of your wandering thoughts by focusing on the “screen” in front of your closed eyes.
When you are thus seated and trying to clear your mind, remember you are following the example of two great spiritual leaders. Buddha sat silently under the Bhodi tree until enlightenment came upon him. And Jesus said he was not asking people to do anything difficult, but to simply “Enter into my rest.” Be thankful for this wisdom passed down to you about the path to enlightenment. Allow yourself to rest.
Once you start doing this and see the results, you will wonder why you put it off. You will be pleasantly surprised. Source is eager to channel the creative force through you when you are willing and diligent with your exercises. You will be rewarded with many times more benefits than the effort you put in.
Are you getting what you desire from life? Are people who need your services coming along and providing opportunities you need to meet your goals? If not, consider this. Desire is important, but it must be activated by focused attitude and action. Desire alone is futile.
Mixed signals you broadcast will return mixed results. Unruly thinking scatters the power you need to make your desires real.
The Master Key Exercises
The Master Key provides gentle mental exercises that slowly strengthen your thinking muscles so you can stay focused and achieve your goals. When you proceed slowly and methodically, the benefits are sure to follow because of the Universal law of Cause and Effect.
Repetition is Your Friend
Like playing an instrument, learning a language, or riding a bicycle, the only way to mastery is by willing yourself to practice regularly. Do the Master Key exercises repeatedly so they become second nature.
When you work out, your muscles become powerful. You do not create the muscles. That part is done for you by the sympathetic nervous system which acts on instructions sent through the cerebro-spinal nervous system by your conscious mind. It is the same with exercises that focus your thought and strengthen your mind.
Desire alone will not cause your muscles to grow stronger. All you can do is repeat the movement. Mixed signals scatter the will to put in the effort required.
Source is eager to channel creative Sacred Power through willing beings. Repeating the Master Key exercises will result in more benefits than the effort you put in. So, even when the exercises seem difficult or next to impossible, keep trying so you can reap the benefits.
The Second Meditation
Get comfortable and sit completely still for at least 15 minutes.Relax every tense muscle. Now you will attempt to gain control of the random thoughts that constantly run through your brain. With eyes closed, focus on a spot in front of your face and observe what you “see”. Stay in that frame of mind as long as possible. Most people find this difficult to do for more than a few seconds. Keep trying until you are able to hold your mind in the present moment longer than you have before.
Your thoughts are vibrations that radiate out of you into the unseen Universe and attract more of the same, like a magnet.
You have a very useful tool inside you and it’s free. It is the will to direct your thoughts. Use this will power wisely and you will reap rewards in your daily life.
When you realize you have the tool, it is your choice to harness it and start creating the life you want. Your thoughts are continually creating your reality, so learn to use the tool to create what you want.
Look around. Everything in the human built environment started with a thought that was put into creative action.
Thoughts are the germs of creation and activity. What are you creating? What are you thinking about? What are you allowing yourself to dwell on?
How to Renew Your Mind
When somebody decides to become a doctor, mechanic, farmer, musician, or anything in this life, they start learning how to think like other doctors, mechanics, farmers, and musicians. And they must train their bodies to align with those thoughts by repeating certain activities that turn into skills. You can only become what you think about.
It’s the same with the predominate mental attitude you would like to have. You are always becoming what you think and practice.
There are only so many hours in the day, so use them wisely to think yourself into becoming what you want to be. The first step is to practice being in the mental present.
The Second Meditation
Nobody said it is easy for a newbie to control his thinking, anymore than it is easy for a baby to walk. The practice of intentionally sitting still and completely relaxing your body is the first step to learning how to use the tools in your mind. Close your eyes and relax the muscles of your face, jaws, shoulders, stomach, and anywhere else you gather tension. Now, add the second step. With eyes still closed, focus your mind out beyond your face, just beyond your eyelids. See how long you can “look” at this space before drifting off into a daydream. When you realize that you’ve drifted, don’t give up. Take inventory of your body. Relax anything that has tensed up from your thinking, and focus on the spot beyond your eyelids again. Keep doing this for at least 15 minutes. Practice this every day for a week.
Here is a seed of thought for you to consider.
The Life Force is always recreating everything in the universe, including you. It is the Power that keeps everything from scattering into a trillion chaotic pieces, and it is everything. It is good for you to get in tune with it.
The Force is everywhere on all dimensions and realities into infinity for ever. It is a vibrating energy that keeps you breathing, and it is the breath itself.
It animates every atom of your body, and it is the atoms themselves.
Good things happen when you sit still and acknowledge the amazing power that’s holding you together. Like water that rushes into any small channel available, the Force naturally flows to and through people who want to get in tune with it.
Create a tiny channel in your being by thinking about the Life Force inside you. It wants to express itself through you. It is pure light, life, and love. It will make the channel bigger, just like water.
The Force is your birthright. It gives you life and will bring abundance too, depending on the degree that you create space for it. It wants to express itself through you.
Make time each day to focus on being a willing channel for the Force. The small seeds you plant by going inward and focusing your mind on the Force will bloom and grow in your life. It is the same Power that makes nature abundant.
Continue to take 15 minutes a day to still your body and relax every muscle. Appreciate the Sacred Force that is in you, and that is you. Stay relaxed and appreciative. You will see that good things start to click into place.
It is true that you have power at your fingertips that most people completely ignore. Learn how to use it, and you will find your hopes and dreams being fulfilled. The power is there freely for everyone and anyone to use. When you realize how fantastic it is, you might wonder why you waited so long to appreciate it.
You Operate in Two Worlds
To harness the power, you have to know yourself better. Your body seems solid and your mind seems to be encased in it. But neither one is true. Your body is matter, which is energy. And your thoughts are energy. Energy vibrates. Your entire being is vibrating energy.
You are very familiar with the solid person. Taking time each day to sit quietly and be in awe of your vibrating energy will open your mind and improve your outlook.
The First Meditation
Sit comfortably still for 15 minutes or more in the Egyptian style, feet flat on the ground, hands on lap. Relax every muscle, release every tension. Let your thoughts wander, but bring them back to consciously relaxing your body. Breathe deep or shallow — whatever helps you relax. Consider that you are not really solid, but that you are vibrating energy.
The subconscious mind is at your service 24 hours a day, without you being aware of it — like a computer operating system that responds to your commands
You have two minds, two modes of thought active within you. In fact, it is more specific to say that you are these two minds, not that you “have” them.
Subconscious At Your Service
The two minds are the conscious and the subconscious.
Your conscious mind is focused on making sense out of what you see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. It comes to conclusions about these things. If action is required, your subconscious mind carries it out.
The subconscious mind receives your conscious thoughts and responds to them with lightening-fast precision. It is a servant that responds to orders.
Think of how fast you pull your hand away from a hot flame. Luckily, you don’t have to explain to your body how to spark the electro-chemical reactions that engage all the nerves and muscles that pull your hand away. Your subconscious mind coordinates the entire complicated process for you.
The subconscious mind is at your service 24 hours a day, without you being aware of it — like a computer operating system working in the background, it is programmed to respond to inputs. That is its job. It receives input from your five senses and feeds responses back to your body.
It also receives inputs to your thoughts and emotions and responds to them just as efficiently.
Continue the first meditation of stilling your body. Get comfortable and sit still. Do an inventory of the various body parts. Are you holding tension in them? Tell the tension to release. Realize that releasing tension is an act of our two minds working together in perfect harmony.
Do you want the power to succeed? Good news! You were born with it.
I find it easier to focus during meditation when I dwell on a few passages from the Master Key beforehand. Most people who try to read that book say it is meaningless. Strange because it really helps me. That’s why I’m going to share basic ideas from it and hope they will inspire you too.
Do you want the power to succeed? Good news! You were born with it. You just need to discover how to tune in and make it work for you.
You will think of reasons why you should ignore this suggestion: It doesn’t make sense. You don’t believe it. It’s not the right time or place. Do yourself a favor and check it out anyway.
The exercises will seem difficult at first. But keep trying. You will get rewards before you even get good at it. You will see little “miracles” at first, and they will increase as you keep going.
To bring health, wealth, happiness, security into your life you need to switch on the health, wealth, happiness consciousness. What does that mean, you ask? Should I lie to myself?
It just means your mode of thought determines your reality. Scattered thoughts cause scattered results. The Master Key show you how to focus . There is no better way to spend your time.
The first step is train your body to relax when you tell it to. Today, sit still for at least 15 minutes. Think about the various parts of your body and release tension in any spot where it gathers as you become aware of it. This simple exercise is the first step of learning how to activate the power within to attract the good things into your life.
As you understand how to plug into your power and direct it, you will gain momentum day by day, and gain confidence.
