MKE Week 15 How Words Express Our Thoughts That Lead To Action

Haanel 15:13-14

“Thought may lead to action of any kind, but whatever the action, it is simply the thought attempting to express itself in visible form.  It is evident that if we wish desirable conditions, we can afford to entertain only desirable thoughts.”

“If we wish to express abundance in our lives, we can afford to think abundance only, and as words are only thoughts taking form, we must be especially careful to use nothing but constructive and harmonious language, which when finally crystallized into objective forms, will prove to our advantage.”

Can we entertain only desirable thoughts all the time?  Constructive words that will lead to harmonious language?  How would we begin to make changes to achieve such an advantage?

One of the seven laws of the mind is the Law of Substitution.   We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.  If a negative thought enters your mind, think about any fond memory or other pleasant thought.  Jesus said, “Resist not evil” meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.

This one law of the mind has made an amazing difference in my life.  I watch carefully what I say to others and especially myself.  It takes practice on my part to first recognize what I am saying and then carefully reframe the thought into positive language.

As a result of making some progress in this area of my life, I have found greater peace and harmony.  The effort is paying off in the area of relationships.  It is important for me to love myself thru the process as it is difficult to make this change that has been around for many years.

Learning to entertain only desirable thoughts has many advantages.  I do enjoy the outcome of choosing wisely what I will say and it does show up in my actions to others.

Blessings, Love and Harmony,





Week 9 Affirm The Good

Our readings this week have been encouraging and up lifting, fitting of Thanksgiving.

Hannel states “Man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the question is, how are we going to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones? At first we can’t keep the evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from entertaining them. This is where a ready-made affirmation comes into play. When a thought of anger, jealousy, fear or worry creeps in, just start your affirmation.” Frederick Andrews comments “For myself, I never could find any help in denials, Affirm the good, and the bad will vanish.”

This affirmation has been very helpful for me “I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWERFUL, LOVING, HARMONIOUS, AND HAPPY”. I have used it often at night when the worry “bug” strikes. With practice and determination, that “bug” goes away from me. As I practice this when anger creeps in, or fear tries to steal from me, or jealousy disrupts my flow of good, great relief follows and I become stronger. To know the truth is to connect myself with a power which is irresistible and will sweep away every kind of discord, inharmony, doubt or error of any kind, because the Truth is mighty and will prevail. This is my desire for you, that as I affirm this for myself, I am also affirming it for you.

I am, Thankful for each one of you.

Week 22 A Control Our Thoughts


It seems as though each day in my life there is a reason to control my thoughts.  For me this can be a struggle especially when I see injustices happening to children in our family.  So each day I use the seven laws of the mind to control and redirect my thoughts.  I will share these laws with you, knowing how much they have helped me keep my balance and remain in peace.


We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.  If a negative thought enters your mind – try to think about higher power or God instead.  If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought.  The Master Teacher said, “resist not evil” meaning don’t resist it but instead turn from it and think about something else instead.


Mental effort defeats itself-It’s the exact opposite of physical effort. A relaxed calm state of mind is the only doorway to mental progress.  Relaxation of thought is the only access to infinite intelligence.


Practice makes perfect.  The 5 Ps- Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance.  Our bewilderment of Magnificence in others, upon further inspection we find is really just practice.  With practice of the correct things, we improve on the other 6 laws of the mind.


To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel.  There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister justified or not, exists.

2015-03-05_1147LAW OF DUAL THOUGHT

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling.  We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.


As soon as the subconscious accepts an idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7 to manifest that demand-accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.


Whatever we think about grows.  What we forget atrophies.

As I have leveraged  these Seven Laws of the Mind, I have found a renewed purpose in life, and a profound peace.

May these laws assist you in finding your peace.


Week 16 What Is The Great Business Of Life?

20141214_114645THINKING….Because thought is spiritual and therefore creative.  To consciously control thought is therefore to control circumstances, conditions, environment and destiny. 

This week in the Master Key we are logging KINDNESSES in our Master Mind Group. Kindnesses others do for me and kindnesses I do for others, seen or unseen.

The “aah ha” moment was when I realized I needed to be kind to myself. Until today (we started Monday)  I had not looked at the kindnesses I have been doing for myself.  How I treat myself.  Here is where my thoughts control so much more than I could ever have come to understand in the past.   Those words that we speak to ourselves. The good ones and the not so good ones.  Yes, that annoying self talk.

One of the seven laws of the mind is the law of substitution.  As I substitute negative thought for a fond memory or another pleasant thought, the negative is blotted out.  It takes hard work to get that self talk into submission, but I am making improvements each day.

I have created a stack of index cards that remind me of all the good things I have accomplished in my life. (one good thing for each card) Each day I add 3 new grateful statements to that stack of cards.  I want to be kind to myself and to others each day.  As Haanel, tells us “as we control our thoughts we can control our circumstances and conditions”.  I use my cards as “flash cards” each day to plant positive thoughts.

In the news the whole month of  January is  getting back in shape by losing weight…new resolution for the new year.  I don’t know about you but I really do not like to lose anything, my keys, my car in the huge parking lot or my belongings.  So why would I want to lose weight? Good question.  Perhaps the words need to be different to cause the real effect I expect to achieve.  Maybe think this over a little bit before I launch the objective.  What is the source of all evil?  Destructive thinking.

The business of life is to control thought and that brings about good circumstances and conditions.

I can be what I will to be
