About donnicholes

I was born and raised in Mexico. Moved to the US at age 14. Started a business, bought a home, got married and had my first child at 19 years of age. Not something I recommend that anyone do. I have been in business for myself or managed other businesses all my life. I have had some really good successes in business and I have had some not so good. In reflecting back, I am grateful for all the experiences I have had, as they have taught me much. I always told myself since I was in High School, that I would not wait until I was old and retired, to enjoy my life. I am a private pilot, very proficient snow and water skier, absolutely love Scuba Diving, so much I became and instructor at one point. I have traveled all over the world, and this wonderful country. I see myself as active and enjoying all life has to offer, right up until my last breath on this amazing planet. I always keep my promises. Don Nicholes

Week 17 Master Key Class 2018/2019

My awareness this week reading 17, is that there is a fine line between concentrating to hard on something, trying to force the thoughts or ideas, and just being those thoughts and ideas. Trying to hard defeats the purpose. I need to just be the thought, be the idea, live the thought or idea. Don’t try to have it, just be it. Now all the exercises we are learning, are simple little was to just be our definite major purpose. Live our definite major purpose.

6. Concentration is much misunderstood; there seems to be an idea of effort or activity associated with it,when just the contrary is necessary. The greatness of an actor lies in the fact that he forgets himself in the portrayal of his character, becoming so identified with it, that the audience is swayed by the realism of the performance. This will give you a good idea of true concentration; you should be so interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon.

You can not have until you can be. Be the thing you want to be.

Second this week, was thinking about intuition, I should never second guess it, and I have  begun to celebrate it with joy and gratitude. I want it to visit often. The more it comes the smoother things seem to go. I am more and more aware of it.

23. Intuition arrives at conclusions without the aid of experience or memory. Intuition often solves problems that are beyond the grasp of the reasoning power. Intuition often comes with a suddenness that is startling; it reveals the truth for which we are searching, so directly that it seems to come from a higher power. Intuition can be cultivated and developed; in order to do this it must be recognized and appreciated; if the intuitive visitor is given a royal welcome when he comes, he will come again; the more cordial the welcome the more frequent his visits will become, but if he is ignored or neglected he will make his visits few and far apart.

I always keep my promises.

Week 16 Master Key Class 2018/2019

This week it has become clear that how we feel about anything, is the biggest determining factor, as to what will manifest or show up in our life. Feeling brings life or vitality to what ever we are thinking. When I really grasp the thought I can choose how I want to feel about something, and that will bring about, wither it is good or bad, depending again on how I choose to feel about it. It becomes even more clear how important it is to be aware of not only what we are thinking, but how we are feeling about it. So again it feels great to catch the negative thoughts coming in. Stopping and choosing to think how ever I wish to think.

All this week, when something happens, I hear something, or someone says something to me that is not to my benefit, for my purpose. I say quietly to myself, I am Whole, I am Perfect, I am Strong, I am Powerful, I am Loving, I am Harmonious, I am Happy. Then I repeat that over and over, I will say it backwards and forwards and really think about what each word means to me. This has been an amazing week, the things that are showing up, unexpectedly, (well I should not say unexpectedly) as when I am choosing my thoughts, with feeling, because that is what is.

I always keep my promises.

Week 15 Master Key Class 2018/2019

It has become very obvious this week that knowledge does not apply itself. Knowing all that we are reading and learning, requires a  concentrated, purposeful application for it to come into fruition. We are getting exactly what we have given. Just that awareness alone, helps me to consciously be choosing thoughts that are conducive to what I want. So as my day goes, I catch myself more and more, when something that is not in harmony with my purpose. I stop and repeat to myself. I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy.

I am Whole, because I am part of the whole. I am Perfect, because, I was made first class, by first class, and I go first class. I am Strong, because I choose my thoughts, always in harmony with my purpose. I am Powerful, because, I am one and the same as the Infinite, Omniscient, and Omnipresent. I am Loving, because I choose love. I am Harmonious, because the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, and I am a part of the whole. I am Happy, because I choose to be happy. Happy Happy Joy Joy.

I always keep my promises.

Week 14 Master Key Class 2018/2019

This week makes me think of. When you girdle a tree, it takes some time before the tree begins to dry up and die, then eventually decompose and disappear. Relating that to our thoughts and the “Mental Diet” choosing what and how we want to think about anything. Knowing that our old blueprint is mostly, all the things we don’t want, because of our lack of knowledge or understanding how things really work and the old conditioning. Then becoming aware of the reality that thought is the only reality, the things around us are just the result of thought. It is a huge shift in our thinking to really, really grasp that thought as, most of our past has been based on the opposite being reality. So back to my  first comment about girdling a tree it takes time, how important it is to really choose our thoughts and not waiver or be wishy washy, but focus, real focus on what we want, as if it already has come into the physical world. It has to dominate our thoughts and then act as if. All this takes me to the big Aha moment, when Jason Prachnowitsch, shared about “The Aggregation of Marginal Gains” all I have to do is think about, I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy. I know that day by day, I am becoming more aware of my thoughts and choosing the good ones, I am incrementally, manifesting my true self and allowing it to blossom.

I always keep my promises.

Week 13 Master Key Class 2018/2019

Reading in week 13.

22, “he will eventually get exactly what he gives;

but he will have to give it first. It is exactly the same with us; we will get exactly what we give, but we shall

have to give it first. It will then return to us many fold, and the giving is simply a mental process, because

thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health

or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect.”

This weeks reading brings a whole new meaning to the saying. “If you help enough other people get what they want, you will never lack for anything in your life.”  So thinking about it and hearing Mark talk about when he was wanting to take the MKMMA to Europe, and did not know how to get it into that market. He focused on Clause & Luc’s DMP’s, read them daily, really thought about them manifesting their DMP’s, saw them happening for them. His thoughts help set into motion the causes that brought about the conditions, that were their DMP’s. What came back to him was the way to open up that market, even though I do not think that is what he was expecting or why he was doing that. He truly was giving with out expectation of reciprocity, and what came back to him was what he was wanting. I hope this is making sense.

What I take from it, is to give my thoughts to another persons wants, or needs, see them getting what they want. Is giving good, thoughts of love, health, prosperity. Giving with out expectation of reciprocity. Setting into motion those causes, can only bring back the same. The Universe does what it does. What you give is what you get.

I always keep my promises.

Week 12 Master Key Class 2018/2019

Another interesting week. As many times as I have heard Mark and Davene say do not beat yourself up, focus on what you did right, dig deep, keep going, celebrate what you did right, no matter how big or small you perceive it to be. It was this week that it really hit my awareness how negative I really have been. At the end of the day, instead of thinking of all the things I did right, I was thinking about all the things I did not get done or messed up on. Sandy would ask me at the end of the day how my day was and I would reply with all the things I did not get done, or ???

The red pencil syndrome is very insidious. The exercise with writing on the 3 X 5 cards all the things we have done right, really pointed that out. We do way more things right than wrong. If that were not so, we would most likely not be alive.

I get excited when I become aware of what I am doing or thinking because that is the moment that I can choose. I choose the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force, called the law of attraction.

I always keep my promises.

Week 11 Master Key Class 2018/2019

I had the joy of spending the weekend with the Doctor who created the amazing products we have to share with the world. Actually, when I said the Doctor created it, he shared his passion with me this week end and that is what I wanted to share here and how it relates to the Master Keys.

What is coming to him, is the result of his knowing that he was able to create products that truly help people, unlike the greed and control driven pharmaceutical industry. What I witnessed in him was a pure heart, humble, loving and truly caring, with out regard to compensation, giving with out expectation of reciprocity.

So, the thought occurred to me, reflecting on the principles we learn in the Master Key’s. There is a mass of people in this country that just want to take a pill or get shot, or and instant fix for whatever is ailing them. As that mass of thought goes out into the universe, could it be that the manifestation of it, is something like what the Doctor had come to him. About 3 months ago he woke up in the middle of the night, went to his bathroom mirror and wrote down a formula that had come to him. He took a picture of it and went to his lab. What came of it is a completely plant based all-natural pain cream. 100% of the 100’s of people we have tried it on, have had an almost instant relief of their pain, and it seems to last for up to about 18 hours.

What I witnessed is a man that is living his Darma, his Passion, he wakes up everyday with a happy knack, living in harmony with himself, and not thinking much of what he does. Everything that is coming to him, to me is clearly coming from his thinking.

 

 

  1. The operation of this thought process is seen in those fortunate natures that possess everything that

others must acquire by toil, who never have a struggle with conscience because they always act correctly,

and can never conduct themselves otherwise than with tact, learn everything easily, complete everything

they begin with a happy knack, live in eternal harmony with themselves, without ever reflecting much what

they do, or ever experiencing difficulty or toil.

  1. The fruit of this thought is, as it were, a gift of the gods, but a gift which few as yet realize, appreciate,

or understand. The recognition of the marvelous power which is possessed by the mind under proper

conditions and the fact that this power can be utilized, directed, and made available for the solution of

every human problem is of transcendental importance.

 

We are all connected, and the world is perfect for it’s current stage of development.

I always keep my promises.
