MKMMA Experience – Week 2
Here is a little something about me. The only place I ever really wanted to visit when I was very young was Hawaii. I can remember enjoying to get to do a project on it in school and also helping my son do a project on Hawaii. I , like many in the 50s and 60s, was in love with Elvis Presley, who starred in Blue Hawaii. I got to go to experience my dream and travelled to 3 of the Hawaiian Islands a few years after I was married and loved it!
I have been on a journey of spiritual discovery and road to better health for some time now, and I can’t help but think that now I am taking a course based from Kauai. How much more exotic and fascinating for me. I can’t help but wonder if there is some significance??
This is my second blog with the MKMMA and I can hardly believe what I have already learned and experienced! As Mark says, “You can teach an old dog new tricks”, LOL.
For our second draft of our Definite Major Purpose, (the dreams of what we want to be and accomplish) we had to add in two ‘Personal Pivotal Needs’. Mark J had us write out a list of seven needs with our left hand, so mine was hardly fit to read, but I chose two quite quickly, that I felt I needed. He then had us close our eyes for a few minutes and then circle two needs as rapidly as we could. I circled two other needs? Interestingly enough ones that I thought I already had a pretty good handle on. So I can only deduce that my conscious mind picked two needs and my subconscious the other two needs. Wondering if anyone else in the course had experienced this phenomenon, I put the question under our ‘alliance’ section and found out I was not the only one that had this experience. I am sure this mystery and answers will unfold as the course progresses.
We also had to write out a couple of promise cards, one saying that we would finish a particular chore, by a particular day. We had to draw a blue rectangle on the card and then were told to notice how many blue rectangles we saw during the week. Notice anything about my blog?
This week’s lesson requirements seemed a little easier in terms of my being more organized and I am looking forward to hearing and seeing what is in store for next week. I hear weeks 4/5 will be pivotal weeks for ‘aha’ moments, so I am really looking forward to more exciting changes.
If the first week of this course was a surfing wipe-out experience, I now feel like I am starting to get my balance and hope to be gliding along the waves, confident and carefree very shortly!
