The Hero’s Journey. Where are you? If you’ve made it this far in the Master Key Experience, you’ve answered the call, you’ve received Supernatural Aid through studying the material; and, most importantly, the sit. Coming this far has also introduced you to the Threshold Guardian who has thrown up obstacles at transitional points in your story, to make sure you are worthy of passing the threshold. You are wise and see the presence of the Guardian as evidence that you are progressing. You’ve vanquished the Guardian thus far, because, dear member, you are still here -you ARE worthy of the life you envision!
Along the way, you’ve found helpers – your Tribe, your Mastermind partners, your Guide, and yourself – again in the sit. You’ve met and listened to your Mentors – Mark, Davene, Dayna and Derek as they have challenged you week after week with exercises, repetitions, progressions, and wisdom as those who have gone before you.
You’ve overcome temptation to be here. It came in many forms – negative self-talk, maybe negative comments or actions of friends and loved ones. Of course, every Sunday for weeks, and weeks and weeks might make your NFL-loving partner miffed because you don’t watch the game. Time zone differences may make it hard, and you’d be tempted to quit. You’ve put up with peptide tantrums, and the kicking and screaming of your old habits. The ever-present old blueprint nagging at you to “come back to where life was easy!” before the MKMMA. But you knew that six months was a short time to commit to changing the rest of your life. You knew going back and laying the cement back on the shiny places you’ve uncovered was not what you wanted to do! You’ve come too far!
Have you hit the abyss yet? If not, you will. Getting through the Abyss is the point of no return. Going through death and rebirth into the new life you deserve has no “exit” door. Many get discouraged here and give up. Don’t be that person! Get through the Abyss and be transformed into your new self. Through Atonement – the reconciliation, the overcoming of what has come before – you will come to a place of peace with your old self, thank her for having gotten you this far, bless her and move on to embrace your new life. Having learned much, you will return having been changed, you fully embrace your new life, and bless the world by living it and sharing your gifts!
