Master Key Week 11 – Speaking Truth

8 Comments

We are working so hard on the world within,  working to literally change our brains. I have come to appreciate the importance of what I tell myself, and the words I keep repeating to myself. Something that would be insignificant to one person might not be at all insignificant to someone else. Even with all that we have learned, I still don’t think we fully realize how carefully our  subconscious listens to what we say.

For example, the affirmation “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, etc.” just didn’t feel right. Finally, I realized why. I reflected on the concept of the DMP. It is supposed to be something we feel we are called to do. For me, the following change made everything fall into place, and feel right for me. What was bothering me might not seem important to anyone else, but it made a big difference in how I felt repeating that affirmation. Suddenly, it was easy, and I was ‘in the flow’.

I was not comfortable saying “I am perfect” In the Judaeo-Christian tradition, there is only One who is perfect. I once knew a man who collected priceless Persian carpets. He had been told that the people weaving the carpets would deliberately create a small flaw in the carpet, so it  would not be perfect. Again,  in their tradition,  there is only One who is perfect.  I now say: “For what God has called me to do, I am whole perfect, strong, etc. I know that is true, so I can comfortably and confidently affirm it.

I first started to be aware of how carefully the subconscious listens  when I was trying to learn techniques for guided relaxation and meditation. My teacher gave me the following image. You are walking toward a beautiful beach in the  Caribbean. The sun is shinning on the  blue water where all kinds of  colorful little fish are swimming all around. You must go down a set of stairs to reach this beach. With each step down the stairs, you feel yourself becoming more relaxed.

I tried everything to reach that fantastic point where you are in the image and all the beautiful things start happening. Nothing was working. Then I realized why. My subconscious was resisting. It knew I could not go on that beach when the sun was shinning brightly because I would have a bad sunburn in thirty seconds!

So, we changed the image so that I was walking in a deeply wooded forest where the trees filtered the sun so that only soft light came through. That image was successful because my subconscious knew I was safe there. I could relax.

I am supposed to be retired, but I really just changed jobs. We recently moved from CA to FL, where we're restoring a fixer upper that is turning into our dream house, and I'm also in the process of writing a series of children's books.

  4. Thank you for sharing. I, too, got caught up on that word “perfect”. This week I share in my blog my own struggle with that word and getting a reminder that I am only human. I approached it from a definition standpoint but, reading your blog, I also relate to the struggle with the word stemming from my Christianity and knowing that I am not perfect. As you’ve stated, only One is perfect. I like that you found a way to bridge your faith and the affirmation; affirming that we are all that God intended for us to be and through Him we can be “whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!” Thank you!

  7. I loved your post. How real is our struggle in regards to see ourselves as “perfect” in the Judaeo-Christian tradition.
    I love the way you now say your affirmations: “For what God has called me to do, I am whole perfect, strong…

    And you are absolutely right, we know that is true, so now you (and I) can comfortably and confidently affirm it.
    Great work!
