I can’t believe our Master Key Experience has already come to an end.
I looked back to my very first blog of Week One to see if I noticed a difference between the Stefanie from September 2022 to now. Here is part of what I wrote for week one:
“Who am I, really?
It seems that all my life I was either hiding in the denial of a hurtful childhood, or being told who to be and what to do, that I never stopped to BREATHE and be STILL long enough to discover myself.
What do I want?
What do I stand for?
What am I good at?
What am I passionate about?
I didn’t know. I became so good at being a chameleon, blending in to any situation yet feeling like I didn’t belong anyway…..but now I finally have the quiet time for self-reflection and discovery; to reveal the Golden child within and find my true purpose.
I am full of hope and grateful to be a part of this Master Key Experience.”
I have to say the most life-changing part of the past 24 weeks was the weekend of solitude and silence. So many memories that surfaced, ideas that were born, and an acknowledgement of what I am good at, what I am called to do (in other words, my dharma.)
I have never felt so free. To learn and believe that my outside world was and is caused by my inner world has been revolutionary…To accept, take responsibility, and remain defenseless…I am free to be me without apologies.
Prior to MKE, I was an over thinker, easily anxious and worried, with a dash of bitterness and resentment from my past. Now, my mind is still often on overdrive, but it’s focused on what I WANT, not on what I don’t want. It’s focused on being calm and cheerful, doing things in a certain way with a happy knack with no more RUSH. And most of all, my mind and heart are filled with GRATITUDE AND LOVE with a better understanding of how we are all connected in this wonderful universe.
I have found my tribe of like-minded people who want more out of life, want to serve, and most importantly—unplug from the machine and be the true, authentic selves we were designed by God to be. I am so grateful for my new friends.
I have seen more changes in Jake and myself in six months than I have in our entire lifetime and look forward to continuing this journey and discovering more changes to come. Happiness is not found at the end of a journey….it IS the journey. A journey that will continue for the rest of my life.
So, I guess this is not the end of our Master Key Experience after all….it is just the beginning as we all continue into the abyss and back to the surface on our Hero’s Journey.
Let us all commence…..
Hi Stephanie. So grateful to have met you. Your reflections are beautiful and I look forward to continuing to connect with you. And as you put it, yes, this is and ending of sorts, or it is mostly the beginning as we continue diving into the MKE and masterminding 💞

How wonderful, Stefanie! Thank you for sharing part of your transformation with us. How special that you have done this hand in hand with your partner!
I’m glad that you chose to copy your first blog into this one. Don’t ever forget where you started, so during the time you feel you’re not making progress, you can see how very far you’ve come!
Stefanie, it’s truly a pleasure and an honor to be the first to comment on this absolutely amazing blog! You’ve managed to put into words just about everything the #MKE program was designed to give a person! If a blog is to be chosen as Week 24’s creme de la creme, you’ve got my vote! In the realm of “get er dun,” you’ve earned all caps for FINISHING STRONG! Bam, bam, and even more bam!!! 🙂
So beautiful and so true. Just the beginning…
