I’ve been trying to figure out when it was really over. Was it the last time we spoke? Or could I already tell, from the very beginning, when we started acting unlike ourselves. Depending on which answer seems right to me that day, I can either feel a little better or worse about it all.

I wish you’d give me a chance … forgive you. Because I already went through the phase of being hurt, being angry, and even thought I hated you for awhile.

But the more I read what the Bible teaches about those who hurt us, the more I realize I really want to forgive you. It’s okay if you hurt me. I know that it was never really about me anyway. You have your own demons to fight.

“If you only love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good only to those who are good to you.....what credit is that to you?” Luke 6:32

The Master Key System CHAPTER TWO


1. Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is a concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power.

2. The outward and changeable has been termed the "conscious mind." or the "objective mind." Perceiving and operating through the five physical senses, the conscious mind deals with the impressions and objects of the outward life. It has the faculty of discrimination, carrying with it the responsibility of choice. It has the power of reasoning --whether inductive, deductive, analytical,  or syllogistic. Not only can it impress other minds, but it can direct the subconscious mind. In this way the conscious mind becomes the responsible ruler and guardian of the subconscious mind. It is this high function which can completely reverse conditions of your life.

3. The interior power is called the "subconscious mind" or the "objective mind." The value of the subconscious is enormous; it inspires us; it warns us; it furnishes us with names, facts and scenes from the storehouse of memory. It directs our thoughts, tastes, and accomplishes tasks so intricate that no conscious mind, even if it had the power, has the capacity for. We can walk at will; we can raise the arm whenever we choose to do so; we can give our attention through eye or ear to any subject at pleasure.  The subconscious mind perceives by intuition. Hence, its processes are rapid. It does not wait for the slow methods of conscious reasoning. In fact, it can not employ them. The subconscious mind never sleeps, never rests, any more than does your heart, or your blood. The subconscious mind is the seat of our principles and our aspirations. It is the fount of our artistic and altruistic ideals.

4. If we compare these two sets of action, the one decreed by the will of the moment, and the other proceeding in majestic, rhythmic course, subject to no vacillation, but constant at every moment, we stand in awe of the latter, and ask to have the mystery explained.

5. It is often true that conditions of fear, worry, poverty, disease, inharmony and evils of all kinds dominate us by reason of false suggestions accepted by the unguarded subconscious mind. All this the trained conscious mind can entirely prevent by its vigilant protective action. It may properly be called "watchman at the gate" of the great subconscious domain. The subconscious mind cannot argue controversially. Hence, if it has accepted wrong suggestions, the sure method of overcoming them is by the use of a strong counter suggestion, frequently repeated, which the mind must accept, thus eventually forming new and healthy habits of thought and life, for the subconscious is the seat of habit. That which we do over and over becomes mechanical; it is no longer an act of judgement, but has worn its deep grooves in the subconscious mind.

6. In conclusion, we find that there is a vast difference between simply thinking, and directing our thought consciously, systematically, and constructively; when we do this we place our mind in harmony with the Universal Mind, we come in tune with the Infinite, we set in operation the mightiest force in existence.


Take the same room, the same chair, and the same position, if possible. Be perfectly still as before, but inhibit all thought; this will give you control over all thoughts of care, worry and fear, and will enable you to entertain only the kind of thoughts you desire.

The Master Key System by Charles Haanel (summarized) CHAPTER ONE


Some men seem to attract success, power, wealth, attainment, with very little conscious effort; others conquer with great difficulty; still others fail altogether to reach their ambitions, desires and ideals. Why is this so? Why should some men realize their ambitions easily, others with difficulty, and still others not at all? The cause cannot be physical, else the most perfect men, physically, would be the most successful. The difference, therefore, must be mental - must be in the mind; hence mind must be the creative force, must constitute the sole difference between men. It is mind, therefore, which overcomes environment and every other obstacle in the path of men.

1. There is a world within --a world of thought and feeling and power; of light and life and beauty and, although invisible, its forces are mighty. The world within is governed by mind. Harmony in the world within means the ability to control our thoughts, and to determine for ourselves how any experience is to affect us. The world within is the practical world in which men and women of power generate courage, hope, enthusiasm, confidence, trust and faith, by which they are given the fine intelligence to see the vision and the practical skill to make the vision real. We are related to the world within by the subconscious mind. 

2. The world without is a reflection of the world within. We are related to the world without by the objective mind. It is therefore through the objective mind, by wrong thinking, that we are related to all destructive forces. 

3. Every thought therefore is a cause and every condition an effect; for this reason it is absolutely essential that you control your thoughts so as to bring forth only desirable conditions. Most men try to change effects by working with effects. They fail to see that this is simply changing one form of distress for another. To remove discord, we must remove the cause, and this cause can only be found in the world within. All growth is from within. This is evident in all nature. 

Select a room where you can be alone and undisturbed; sit erect, comfortably, but do not lounge; let your thoughts roam where they will but be perfectly still from fifteen minutes to half an hour; continue this for three or four days or for one week until you secure full control of your physical being.

I don't want a llama

Here is a short story from this little book I am reading called Notes from the Universe:

You wouldn't believe the stuff people think they want. Just the other day someone was asking for a llama. Nothing wrong with llamas, I have a few myself, but the llama he wants is supposed to help him with his business; schlepping stuff over mountains, they're good for that. 

Now, why do you suppose he didn't just ask for a pickup truck? Trust me, he could've asked for a pickup truck, and he'd have been a lot happier. 

So ....I'm off to the bazaar. In the meantime, should you need anything, please be sure to ask for what you really want. 

I was just thinking about my relationship with someone I used to be close with, and this story came to mind. This person has put very little effort to remain a part of my life and sometimes I think I STILL want them around. It is like God revealing himself to me and asking me to choose the one person I want in my life, and I am still ignorantly choosing the "llama."

But I'm starting to see the error in asking for something too small or even unworthy of myself because honestly that is the truth. You would think the person I would desperately want in my life would be just so incredibly  awesome, but no I am asking the Universe to give me a llama.

It's funny just thinking about it, but it's a good lesson to know and keep in mind --think long and hard about the things you are wishing/hoping/praying for to make sure that you are asking for what you REALLY want.

Hello world :)

Hello world :)

Maybe I've decided to start writing again (we'll see) and since my way of thinking has changed this past year, I have hidden all my old posts mainly since some of the topics were just a bit nagging and depressing. I only kept my last blog just because it was the most recent thing I had written, but I do have to say --I honestly don't remember why I felt so strongly about my "soul dying" and I'm thankful for that :D

If I haven't already told you in real life, I will tell you here --I have been reading LOTS of information on positive thinking to the point of obsession. But a healthy obsession, I would say. I've just been getting it from everywhere --Joyce Meyer (I love you sooo much), books like the Secret, books on the topic written nearly 100+ years ago, the Bible, etc. It is amazing how these teachings are connected and all have the same message, simply put:


So be conscious of your thoughts for they are shaping your life every day! Anyway, hope to write again. Thank you so much for taking the time to read & comment. Muah!
