The Master Key Mastermind Alliance Dreams Aloud – Do you? (Week 5)

When did saying our wishes out loud become a bad thing?

Blow Out Bday Candles

Probably, right around the time we started to talk at our birthday parties.  Our parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles would say, “Blow out your candles!!  Make a wish!”  Sure, it took a few more birthday parties to understand what a wish was, but once we got the hang of it, we wanted to wish all the time.  Our dreams and wishes excited us!!!  We wanted to shout from the roof tops!!!  While the room filled with smoke, smiles spread across our faces just as our lips parted to share these amazing ideas with our beloved family members.  Then came the inevitable, “SSSSHHHHHH!!!!!  Wait, don’t tell us your wish!!!  If you do, then it will never come true!!!”  Our smile would fade, a look of confusion would furrow our brow, and then came the explanation – “Well, see.  You want your dream to come true, right?  So, if you tell us, it won’t come true.  Understand?  You have to keep it close to your heart, tell no one, and then it will come true.  Won’t that be great?!  So, don’t tell anyone, okay?  Good.”

Mum becomes the word…

Kid in ShockJust when you thought you had it all figured out, your cousins and friends pounce on you all covered in cake crumbs and beg you, “What did you wish for?  For my birthday, I wished for a super duper amazing toy, and I never got it.  I never told anyone, and it didn’t come true.  Come on, you can tell me.  I won’t tell!  Sooooo, what did you wish for?”

What do you mean it didn’t come true? So, we share our birthday wish in a sheepish whisper.  In turn, maybe we get nods of approval or occasionally we are tormented for our silly choices.  Either way, they were our cherished dreams shared with enthusiasm figuring they would someday come true.  As we grow older, we find if someone had simply overheard us they may have been able to go to the store.  By keeping mum, we blew out our candles, shielded our dreams, and never received the assistance, love, and support to make our birthday wishes come true.  So, was it all worth it?  Was that the right advice or encouragement we needed in our youthful exuberance?

Shout it from the roof tops!!!!


ScreamingMy head is full of Napoleon Hill of Think and Grow Rich, Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World, and Charles Haanel’s book The Master Key System.  Everything tells me to SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!!!  The more we keep quiet and to ourselves, the less time our subconscious ever gets to manifest our desires into reality.  There’s an old saying that we only use 10% of our brains.  What if that’s because our subconscious rules the other 90%?  By talking aloud and speaking with enthusiasm, we move our wishes into an area of our mind where dreams really do come true.  Wouldn’t that be worth it?

Putting it Out There…WITH ENTHUSIASM!!!!

Our Master Key Mastermind Alliance has been asked to dream aloud through press releases.  (Go ahead and check out mine!!)  The ‘guide’ for our adventure, Mark J, kindly went first, but we’ve been asked to take some of our inner most desires and make them public for all to see, read, comment on, and otherwise put it out into cyberspace with enthusiasm!!!!  The days of keeping mum are over.  Through love, support, guidance, humility, encouragement, and lots of personal courage, we can achieve everything we wished for on our birthday every year for the rest of our lives.  What do you want?  Say it out loud!  Scream it from the rooftops!!  Watch it come true in unexpected ways as you share with others!!!

wow…you nailed it!
all those years of keeping our innermost wants and desires SECRET! and of course, if we MENTIONED them, then… what…ridicule? scorn? oh…that will NEVER HAPPEN…so we withdraw to…just ok!

The more we keep quiet and to ourselves, the less time our subconscious ever gets to manifest our desires into reality.

By talking aloud and speaking with enthusiasm, we move our wishes into an area of our mind where dreams really do come true. Wouldn’t that be worth it?
I’m with you! Let’s shout to the roof tops. the more we manifest the better for all! yahoo! Let’s manifest the heck out of the rest of our lives and help others do the same. oops…sneaking in MY pivotal need into YOUR post. my bad. Guess it is REALLY true…when it is pivotal, we know it in our gut…(er…was that Solar Plexus?)

hugs to you!
happy manifesting!


    Mary Beth, I can read your enthusiasm from here!!! Awesome to see you “get it”. 🙂 Just keep that in mind the next time you are at a birthday party. Give your dreams to get your dreams! — Marea

Excellent post! Love the illustrations you utilized to break up the post.

    Julie, Thanks! We’re now the Observers, and it’s interesting to see the norms of our life which end up being questioned. See you on the MKMMA path!


Oh My Gosh, Marea, completely forgot about that – blow out the candles and make a wish but don’t tell anyone. Awesome observation. Love the pictures you use as well.

LOL, spot on! I have argued this in my head at so many birthday parties. Your post reminded me of my confusion around this at my brother’s birthday party, he must have been about 3 or 4 and I was 5 or 6. I haven’t thought about that for years, I think it was the photos you put with it – the 2nd one was powerful, for me. Thanks for the reminder, great thoughts!


    I’m glad the photos are linking with the content, but it’s really cool that they’re taking you to your own memories. does an amazing job at having downloadable photos. They’re my go-to spot for my blog when using real life photos. Three cheers to screaming your birthday wishes out loud!!!

I always wondered where that theory came from too. Why did we have to keep that wish a sectret. I asked my mom what she asked for on her last birthday and she said she couldn’t tell me because then it wouldn’t come true. I laughed and was thinking… no. I was trying to figure out what to get you for your birthday and if you would just TELL me, then I would know what to get you for Christmas!

We miss 100% of the shots we DON”T take.

My Dad used to tell me we couldn’t have anything we asked for. If we asked to go out to dinner or to have a certain toy, the answer was always no and if we asked “why” it was because we asked for it. Once in a while, we would get gifts but only when we weren’t asking for them. That always made me wonder too.

Shout it from the rooftops is right! I’m off to my rooftop.
