It is Thursday night November 12, 2020. Sunday started week 7 of the Master Key Experience. This is the latest in the week that I have written my blog post. The reason for this is I have fallen a little behind in getting my work done every day. It is nothing drastic but just a little troubling. We did not add a lot extra this week but for some reason it just seems a little harder to complete everything. I know that I am not the only one so at least I am not beating myself up too much. The group support during the week on Marco Polo is very helpful. It makes it easier to see others are struggling a little bit too. The encouragement to just keep pushing forward and do the best we can is great. So I feel that this is just a little bump in the road on the journey. I know I am not going to give up and quit so it is time to just suck it up a little and enjoy the struggle.
One thing we did add this week is the 7 day diet. This is going for 7 days straight with no negative thoughts. Well not no negative thoughts because that is just going to happen and you can’t stop a thought from popping in your head. The key is to be aware of the negative thought and replacing it with something else that is not negative in less than 7 seconds. It the negative thought last more than 7 seconds you have to start over at day one. If you have a negative thought and you physically do something like yelling at someone, flipping someone off or anything else you have to start over. This is very hard to do. The first thing that is hard is actually realizing that you are having the negative thought. I find this is harder to do than I thought it would be. Then you have to replace the thought with something else. The combination is hard because you have less than 7 seconds. I sometimes realize the negative thought but it is too late to have time to replace it. So I am getting better at it but I have yet to make it through a single day yet. Lots of starting over. So I continue to work on early awareness of the negative thoughts so I will have time to replace it in less than 7 seconds. I’m not sure how long it will take to make it though 1 full day let alone 7 days in a row. What I do know it that to make it through 7 days without negative thoughts about myself, others, my current situation or anything else will be amazing. So the goal is to make through 7 days and make it a part of everyday of your life. It may take awhile but it will be so worth the effort. Right now I can only imagine it. However I will get there and probably find it is even better than I imagine it to be. So the journey continues.
We are continuing on with all of our readings, affirmations and I continue to try to get my DMP right. I am sure that the current bump in the road I am experiencing this week will be over next week and I will get this blog out a little earlier in the week. If not that’s okay because I know that progress is not always a straight line and you sometimes learn more from the struggles find along your journey. I know I am on a great journey. So I will get over this bump.
