Week 11 has been filled with personal insight and has felt like the most erratic week I have had in following every discipline religiously. It has been consistently up and down, nothing done perfectly. Even so, the changes in how I am now feeling and acting from when I first began the course are becoming more and more noticeable.
The directive from the Master Key Lesson to focus on “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them” and to remember Nature is lavishly wasteful and effusive is gradually permeating my world view in so many small and precious ways. Ideas for books are coming to me from simple actions like cleaning out my email box. The “I will persist” phrase is becoming an enjoyable mantra instead of feeling heavy. I have found myself leaving my Greatest Salesman book out on my desk at work instead of keeping it under wraps. Creating relationships with people I meet is becoming easy and true no matter how brief the encounter. Sharing about MKMMA is becoming as natural as breathing. This course which started out as a covert activity is more and more public, more a part of my way of being.
My granddaughter Al’aura is in kindergarten and is just beginning to read and write. She is practicing her letters every day. Two or three times per week, I make lunches for the kids and send them with my husband as he carts everyone to school. Always a Word for the Day accompanies their lunch bags, often written hastily on the outside of the brown paper bag with a black Sharpie.
My prayer has been that my husband and I really make a difference in the lives of our grandchildren.
Today I came home and found a drawing done by Al’aura which was her own version of a cartoon I had drawn for her around the verb ‘Run’. My version – a simple rendition of a famous Walt Disney cartoon from the 1930’s – has Mickey Mouse holding a fist full of flowers running after Minnie Mouse calling out Wait! My figure is drawn in black with Mickey sporting Red shoes and White mittens.
As I organized a stack of papers on the children’s drawing table I found a small colorful 4” x 4” cartoon rendering of my drawing. In this illustration Mickey and Minnie flank an ‘Al’aura Stick Figure’ identifiable by the Pink mittens drawn on her own image, also sporting Red shoes, with the words Wait – Wait – printed above their heads.
Such a small thing, and yet I got how BIG it is. An often quoted idiom states that “Imitation is the highest form of flattery.” Many people take issue with that statement yet imitation, trying on new ideas for size, taking on new behaviors – practicing. That is one way we learn and grow. As I am growing so is she.
One more thing – when I looked at Al’aura’s drawing again I saw that not only had she inserted herself smack dab in the middle of the picture, but Minnie was holding the flowers in her hand – drawn just exactly as I had drawn them in Mickey’s hand… And, both Mickey and Minnie are beaming Mouse ear to Mouse ear! It is accomplished. Al’aura had seen the prize and taken it to the finish line. “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.” That is Universal Mind at work.
The Law of Growth – Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

The Law of Subconscious – As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24/7 to manifest demand ~ accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.
