MKE Week 20 – Time to Break a Few Eggs

This week’s webinar and Haneel lesson really hit home (and I feel like I say this every week, but hey, it’s true!)

I’ve been thinking all week of how to use the emotions that keep us in our comfort zones to expand and use them for my good and my growth. For the most part of this MKE, I thought my lack of self worth was what was holding me back, but this week I realized that it is more fear than anything else.

“Fear of what?” I kept asking myself.

What is fear anyway? F.alse E.vidence. A.ppearing R.eal. And if I am living each day as if it is my last, what the heck do I have to be afraid of?

Then it dawned on me…it’s the fear of losing security.

The security of a steady pay from my full time job.
The security of my house, which I rent from my uncle who is more like a father to me and on whom I can always rely.
The security of family close by.
The security of routine and knowing what to expect day in and day out (though I CLAIM I hate it and want adventure, I realize boring routine is still a source of security for me.)

For most of my daughters’ lives I was a single mom, so I guess this need for security was to provide and protect them. But they are all young ladies now, so there are no more excuses.

MKE has given me the whole recipe of what I need to do to re-write my blueprint and achieve my God-given purpose. But like Mark said in this week’s webinar, no matter how much I read the recipe it won’t do “squa-doosh” if I don’t break a few eggs and start doing the action steps.

Lesson 20 in Haanel’s Master Key System talks about how the divine, universal mind is within us. We are made in God’s image. As a Christian this is not news to me, but one line hit me hard…

“You may have all the wealth in Christendom, but unless you recognize it and make use of it, it will have no value; so with your spiritual wealth; unless you recognize it and use it, it will have no value. The one and only condition of spiritual power is use or recognition.”

Charles Haanel, The Master Key System, 20:2

I know I have the spirit of God within me, so why am I not using it more to fulfill my purpose? To benefit the lives of others? To be of service? It’s selfish of me to possess such a wonderful power and keep it hidden. It also shows a lack of trust. All I need to do is to take at least one tiny step for God to step in and continue the momentum…open wide the gates.

Time to put on my apron and get my hands dirty. As Julia Child said, “ The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”

You can find more great content here:

  • Thank you Terri! The deeper I go into the MKE lessons the more God’s works are revealed to me. We can’t wait to meet you too! Would love to mastermind!

  • Thanks for sharing these terrific insights and the questions that we all ask ourselves from time to time. And way to. include “squa-doosh”!

  • Great Blog! I too, like security, so I can really relate to that. I think that is essential for ‘us moms, especially when we have to raise a family.”

    Another interesting thing that struck me as well, the deeper we get into Haanel he gets deeper into the spiritual belief that runs parallel to mine. You mentioned the quote, “God lives in us.” Haanel touches on deep concepts I can’t talk about with most of my church peers.

    BTW, Jake is in my tribe and I have enjoyed his comments on Marco Polo. Look forward to meeting with you both in Kauai.

  • This is one of my favourite lessons in the whole MKE – I’m so glad you gained these insights! Keep your what-the-hell attitude:)

  • Very insightful Stefanie. I appreciate reading abut your thought process and you sharing all the various questions you are asking yourself. Bravo on engaging in your unique Hero’s journey! enjoy cracking those eggs! You (and God/universe) got this!
