Week 17: I decide.

Interesting week. I would not be surprised that once I will be looking back at the whole course in a few months, that week 17 will have turned out as somehow the ‘key-week’.


Every week so far has brought me fantastic insights and material to work with, and many break-throughs have happened, on different levels and in many different ‘shapes’.

But this week seems to bring me really right down to ‘my core’, because of my ‘Franklin-Make-over-quality-of-the-week’: decisiveness.

Not that I was so un-decisive before, well, that is: not that I was so un-decisive before in the outer world.Β OK, granted, there too some further development of this specific quality certainly was welcome, but I was not exactly the ‘just let it all happen and go with whatever wind comes where-ever it takes you in what ever way.’

No, it’s in the inner realm that my work is done. And I thank my ‘subby’ for this wonderful ‘coincidental order’ Β and timing of all the qualities that it picked…..starting with ‘my sweet persistence’ as I wrote earlier, and aligned with the kindness-week last week that took that theme even further. And so this week it’s ‘decisiveness’ that is being held under the magnifying glass, and I am SO grateful that I had the chance to first further deepen the ‘being kind to myself’ (as in persisting kindly also, yes, still going on with that one too….), because with ‘decisiveness’ I again stumble on a quality that so far has been associated and executed mainly in the ‘harsh’, not very self-respecting way, by dear Ol’Selfie.

But so now I could immediately tune into another ‘kind’ πŸ™‚ of this quality.

And because of that — other than of course seeing it all around me, no problem with that, actually it struck me already two weeks ago, during the first week of the make-over, that you can see whatever quality in whatever ‘event’ or ‘thing’ or ‘behavior’ if you look for it, even the exact same event looked at with a different focus will give you exactly the quality you are looking for — but, so: because of tuning immediately inward on my search for ‘developing decisiveness’, I went even deeper than I anticipated.

So I was not even simply (or only) looking to be more decisive, to take more decisions, to make them easier and in a more gentle way or for better (= more kind, gentle) reasons, but already on day one I stumbled on what seems to be ‘my Key’ in this whole story. ‘This whole story’ being the MasterKey-course, but also being: my Life, Me.


Because I suddenly realized that this is what I need to do, and I’m applying it persistently:

I decide what I think. At all times. In all circumstances.

Yes, I am what I think, and so now I really ‘think’ what I will to be, and what I already am, in essence.

AND: I decide to apply, and I decide how I feel.

So: I do that, now. πŸ™‚

This realization gave me instantly a HUGE feeling of ‘being home’, being in control (in the right way), of a calm, relaxed state of mind, of being safe. AND: being RESPONSABLE.

There it is, there I have it: My Power. My true, innate Power, and access to it.

No more distractions, no more scattered mind. When I notice myself drifting, I gently (yesyes πŸ˜‰ ) bring myself back, to ‘profound wellbeing‘. Yes, I allow myself to think what I choose to think, inspired by Futur’Selfie.

And yepla, all the rest falls into it’s place: the substituting, the dual-thought-stuff, the practicing and so on, and especially all the affirmations, …..

Hallelujah. πŸ™‚

It’s is very interesting and inspiring to see how your focus on decisiveness brought you to a better control of your thoughts and emotions…There is an old saying which says that all roads lead to Rome…Yes, but only if we have the courage to walk and keep going, and that’s what you do, so congratulations and thanks for the inspiration!

    Dominica Eyckmans

    oh thanks, Luc! Yes, it’s a very interesting yet CHALLENGING road, that’s for sure….. but my future me leaves me no choice….. πŸ™‚ …. so step by step, OK, I fall, but get back up, gently persisting, and every step more decisive.
    And feeling my inner strength growing with every step I take. And yeeha, also my physical strength and performance!!


Hi Dominica, you have a knack of “nailing it”. So simple, and as always profound. The “work” you do on your inner self is amazing. Congratulations on your discovery,

    Dominica Eyckmans

    thanks dear friend! I hope it was a bit more ‘easy’ to read….? πŸ˜‰ I had your comment about that in mind while writing… did help me to get to a more ‘crisp’ formulation of my ‘inner realm’, I think…..

Chiara Capello

I love this post! So clear and profound…I like the way you combine kindness and decisiveness. A key week for me too. Thank you.

Marj Bernstrom

wooHoo!! Time to reward yourself and celebrate!! Love the definiteness in your “voice”!!

    Dominica Eyckmans

    yessss πŸ™‚ and funny, I am working on my voice very intensely these days…. my singing-voice I mean…. it’s getting ‘a new ring to it’…… πŸ™‚ ….

Hello Dominica! Well done! Isn’t it an AHA moment?
Same timing for me! Week 17 is a key week for me as well. I sent a message to Mark and Davene to explain how calm, strong and purposeful I felt. How surprised I am of being where I am now! I would have not imagined that 6 months ago.

    Dominica Eyckmans

    ooops I thought I responded to this, but it seems gone…?
    anyway, thanks for reading and replying πŸ™‚
    and yes even if it is still ‘hard’ (but nice!!) work to get my mind ‘mine’ πŸ˜‰ constantly, it definitely pays off πŸ™‚
    practice-practice-practice πŸ™‚

Hallelujah and happy feelings abound for you my friend as you have already chosen and used the key πŸ™‚ Inspirational, heart felt and a powerful permission you have granted and shared πŸ™‚
