I am so excited to be on this Master Key journey for liberty and true health. I can say that this is the exact, right time in my life, that MKMMA would cross my path. I know and have met my “Other self” many times through out my life, and have had amazing life changing effects starting at a very young age. As a 7 yr. old child my favorite hobby was writing to movie stars to tell them my dreams of performing. Over the years I amassed a huge collection of autographed pics and hand written letters from the favorites I grew up watching from Carol Burnett to Debbie Reynolds to name a couple of my very first pictures to arrive in the mail. Years later I would meet almost all of the stars I had written to with no effort by my conscious self and with each having their own unique story. I believe it was my first experience I can remember w/ causes and effects and the law of attraction.
In 1974 I was the only 12-year-old I knew, that had his mother take him to the movie, “The Exorcist” and of course I couldn’t tell any of my friends at the time, because I felt like my mom might get turned into child services. Ten years later at 22 years old (30 years ago), I met Linda Blair when she was invited to my house for a BBQ, after my roommate had spent the day with her as a guide at Universal Studios opening in Orlando, FL.. We met and connected immediately and have been friends since. I just celebrated Linda’s last birthday with her on her trip to Portland last January and then she invited me to my first comic con where she was signing autographs. As her VIP guest for many events over the years and spending time with my old friend is always a blast! MMMM… law of attraction?
In 1993 I started managing a cafe for Debbie Reynolds in Vegas where I was prompted by my new friend, boss and stage mother at the time Debbie, to create my own act. I started performing with Debbie Reynolds and Rip Taylor on stage for an audience of Debbie’s fans and always many celebrities I had written to and watched on TV . It was a dream come true for me, being able to sing and perform with a legend. MMMM… law of attraction? Oh and years before I worked at Walt Disney World where I met Carol Burnett!!
In 1995 my partner was diagnosed with a life threatening illness and I spent the next 2 years taking care of him until he died in my arms in 1997. I went back to work full-time for a year, only to start having a hard time walking. I was sent from one doctor to another to be told I had something I didn’t have until 2000 came and I was completely paralyzed and become unable to do normal functions like walk and eat on my own. I was the only one who believed I would recover. I had reoccurring dream I was in a gorgeous old theatre and I was walking up the stairs to the balcony and as I walked I would fall down to my knees, get up, continue walking, over and over again. I spent 16 months paralyzed until I found my hero doctor in Detroit, Dr. Alex Tselis who took one look at my medical records and me slumped over in wheelchair and let me know immediately he knew I had been misdiagnosed and he needed to run some tests to confirm it, but thought he had a treatment for me. He was correct and after diagnosis of CIDP, my treatment began and within four days of first treatment I was able to take my first steps in almost two years. I spent many months in physical therapy and I did have some permanent damage but so be it! I give thanks everyday for finding Dr. Tselis and being able to recover from paralysis. I was still in therapy when I decided I wanted to move to Portland, Oregon because one of my sisters lived here at the time and she told me I would love it here. I can only tell you that when my feet hit the ground after flying here for a visit in 2001, which my first flight was scheduled for September 11th and was canceled and rescheduled as that horrible nightmare of 911 occurred for all of America.
I promise I have always gone through bad times with a smile on my face and happiness in my heart, just to make it another day. I can remember the feeling of my “other self” and just pure positive causes within and I feel closer now to getting back to that person and totally being stronger and happier than I have been for years.
When I listened to last Sunday’s class and Mark talked about giving your best I had some doubts flash through my mind, when at the same time I know how much fun this class is and how it feels so right to me, and at that exact moment Mark decides to use Karate Kid as a metaphor and boom I knew MKMMA was meant to be! When I worked for Debbie I met Pat Morita ( Mr. Miyagi) and we became buddies. He and his wife came into cafe every Sunday for dinner. He always called me Danielson!! Wow, what an honor…He knew I would start performing with Debbie in our new show “Jazz and Jokes” in cafe I managed and he arrived for the very first show to watch and give me support! He was a wonderful man and miss him a lot. RIP Pat!!
If that wasn’t enough convincing for me, one of the next lines Mark gives is the blue light is flashing Kmart shoppers. When I was on tennis scholarship in Florida playing at Lake -Sumter College in Leesburg, FL. in 1981 I worked as the very first male cashier at the Kmart there and I quickly was promoted to checkout supervisor, also first male checkout supervisor, where I did daily Blue light specials…also the first male to do blue light specials in this store.
It’s events like these in my life that prove to me the Law of Attraction and that my “Other self” is for real. I am not talking about that “Other self” that performed in Vegas. Something far bigger and more important is the World within effecting my World without. My big moments with my “Other self” have always coincided with synchronistic events and I have many amazing stories to prove there is no such thing as coincidence. I hold all of them inside myself, as proof there is something so much bigger that we have access to, through the law of attraction and cause and effect. I live the proof everyday…
