Psychic gravity

This has been an interesting week. I’ve gotten a lot done, and I’m on track to accomplish my goals for the week. Being that the Master Key Experience is done for the year I feel as if I can relax a bit, but I’m still reading and studying. This has sort of become my life.

I didn’t actually understand the reading we’re doing this month from Haanel the last time I read it (which was last year at this time). I was so busy getting ready to go to Hawaii and all (which I’m not going to do this year) that it was all more or less a blur. This chapter is so packed full of concepts that I still don’t feel as if I really get it, but I did want to talk about one phrase he uses: psychic gravity.

I pondered that one for a while there, and I think what he means is just like regular gravity, which pulls objects together, this is the mental pulling together of like-minded people.

This is fairly encouraging, because one of the things I’ve struggled with is not feeling part of anything. Even in the Master Key Experience, I still feel like the outsider. It’s been that way all of my life, and I’m looking forward to the time when this part of it begins to work for me, because I know that my future self has lots of friends. People that want to call and be in my life, and that are just like-minded people. That have the same goals and dreams, and want to work with me, as opposed to what I’ve had, which has felt more like pulling teeth.

So I’m not really worried about when it’ll happen.

I hope all of you are well and getting excited about the next Master Key session in September. I hope to see all of you there.

Changes

As I alluded to last week, changes are happening in my household. As much as I love my husband, the loss of quiet time at my computer during my prime working hours in the morning (he’s up before I am) is taking some getting used to. But even more than that, I’m finding changes going on inside me too.

This week, I failed to meet a Definite Major Purpose (DMP) goal. It was, as you might have guessed, a financial goal. I’m really trying to figure out why, because we manifest our own reality. The closest I’ve gotten so far is that as I mentioned my goal, in my mind I pictured what I would do, how I would juggle things, if I didn’t make it. I did notice it many times and corrected myself. But my old money blueprint of “here we go and fail again” has still worked against me in this area.

I realized I needed to circumvent my old blueprint entirely, make it irrelevant. So I removed all the financial stuff from my DMP. If I truly get what I want, money won’t be an issue.

I’ve also realized that while my Personal Pivotal Needs (PPNs) are True Health and Legacy, Autonomy is rising up as a close third. I thought it was Liberty, but one of my main goals for getting money is the freedom to do what I want. And that’s more important to me than how much I have in my bank account. How do I know that? Because even though my online businesses allow me to run them anywhere, I’m still feeling weighed down by them. I have deadlines, obligations, expectations put on me. And I’m not getting anywhere near the return I thought I would when I began them.

changesSo here I am, yet again, trying to figure out if this is just me being flighty or whether I really should sell these and move on.

Since one of them is deeply tied into my DMP, something I’ve publicly announced I’m going to do, I have to ask myself why I’m feeling this way. There are some simple things I can do to make these more profitable. I know what I need to do. I’m not doing it. Why? Is it my old self-sabotaging blueprint again? Am I afraid of whatever breakthrough I’m going to make if I persist? Or am I just clinging to a dead horse no one else wants out of fear of doing what I really should be doing?

When you’re in this place, it seems dark. It seems overwhelming. But we know what that means. The real trick is knowing which way to go, what changes to make. But like that seed in the dark, we are given a major clue. I just need to follow it.

Week 20: failure is impossible

This week has been interesting so far: I’ve been able to accomplish quite a bit. But I’ve had my share of what seemed like failure along the way, too, just like anyone else.

This week, though, I was reading Part 20 of The Master Keys, and Haanel said something which struck me (he’s referring to our subconscious mind):

Our failures are a result of the operation of exactly the same principle; the principle is unchangeable; its operation is exact, there is no deviation; if we think lack, limitation, discord, we shall find their fruits on every hand; if we think poverty, unhappiness or disease, the thought messengers will carry the summons as readily as any other kinds of thought and the result will be just as certain. If we fear a coming calamity, we shall be able to say with Job, “the thing I feared has come upon me”…

And I thought:

Where is the failure here?

The “calamity”, as Haanel puts it, is neither a failure of the subconscious mind nor a failure of the law of attraction, is it? They both worked, just as if you jump off of the roof, you can’t say it was a failure that you hit the ground.

When I read this, I realized that there is no such thing as failure when it comes to the law of attraction, just as there is no failure when it comes to the law of gravity. It will work every time. What actually happens depends on the choices you make.

I was going to title this week’s blog post as “staying positive in a negative world”. But it seems to me that all over the world, people are doing exactly what Haanel mentioned above: thinking lack, limitation, and discord. And then they wonder why this is manifested in their lives. It’s simply because they don’t understand the law.failure

Now it seems a bit silly if you really compare it to the law of gravity: who in their right minds would jump off of the roof and expect not to hit the ground?

But it’s just that lag time between the thought and the manifestation which makes it so vital to understand all this. If you have been negative, you have time to start changing your thoughts so as to modify or even change the result that is coming for you as inevitably as the ground.

Like the aphids, we can grow wings.

Haanel later adds:

Every time you think you start a train of causation which will create a condition in strict accordance with the quality of the thought which originated it. Thought which is in harmony with the Universal Mind will result in corresponding conditions. Thought which is destructive or discordant will produce corresponding results. You may use thought constructively or destructively, but the immutable law will not allow you to plant a thought of one kind and reap the fruit of another.

That’s the whole point of the Master Key Experience, in my view (should I dare to state an opinion here 😉 ) – getting us off the tracks for “the thing I feared has come upon me” and onto the tracks of the things we want in our lives.

You have to stop thinking of failure in order to succeed.

I don’t know about you but two years ago that would have seemed impossible to me.

You might be thinking right now, “What do I do then? Am I doomed? I don’t want to fail! I don’t want bad stuff to happen because of my thoughts … but I feel powerless to control them.”

No! You’re not doomed! The first thing you need to realize is that you are not powerless. You can begin the way we all began in the Master Key Experience: by being an observer.

Watch your thoughts. Don’t judge them, don’t say “this thought is good/bad”. Don’t beat yourself up about them. Just watch them.

Watching your thoughts is much easier than changing them, but although it’s still pretty hard to do consistently, it’s the most important first step you can take.

I’m here to tell you that you can do it. If I can do it, anyone can. 🙂

There’s this booklet called The 7 Day Mental Diet which was written back in 1935 (not a particularly pleasant time in history, if you recall) to help people with watching their thoughts, and with actually changing them! If you’d like a copy, fill out the form that pops out when you scroll down and I’ll send it to you.

Week 13: Effects and causes

This week, Haanel talks more about causes and effects: more specifically, that each of the effects we see around us, from natural to man-made, have a particular cause. Once we find the cause, we can create the effect for ourselves whenever we want.

For example: people have observed birds flying, leaves floating, and so on, since the beginning of humanity, and for thousands of years people spent their lives trying to create the effect without understanding the cause. As far as I can tell, even the Wright brothers more or less stumbled upon the effect, and so we have airplanes. But once we learned the cause (aerodynamics) we could create the effect of flying whenever we wanted to!

I think it’s the same way with the other effects in our lives. We see how our lives are, and we spend our lives trying to create situations which we think are good, without really understanding the cause of either why we are here now or why someone who has what we want got that.

(many times, we don’t really even know what we want in the first place, but that’s another matter)

We may stumble upon it, and many often do. When we understand the cause, though, we’ll be able to create that effect whenever we like.

During the first part of the class (and some people are still struggling with the question) we asked: what do you want? That is the effect.

But what is the cause? That is what we need to figure out.

(This reminds me a bit of our battleship exercise.)

Haanel talks about belief, about the Universal Mind, about how our thoughts become the cause which creates literal effects in our existence. Not supernatural. Not mystical. Real effects from a real cause: your thoughts.

(If the thoughts you create inside your own head are not real, then what is?)

Anyone who’s tried to guide their thoughts (aka the 7 day mental diet) has learned how difficult it is at first. Just like anyone else who’s trying to create an effect, it takes some doing. Things (whether a positive mental attitude or a skyscraper) do not just jump into existence because you wish they would.

So now the task is to examine the effects we want then go back to see what the cause might be for this. Haanel gives us a clue:

The athlete may read books and lessons on physical training all his life, but unless he begins to give out strength by actual work he will never receive any strength; he will eventually get exactly what he gives; but he will have to give it first. It is exactly the same with us; we will get exactly what we give, but we shall have to give it first. It will then return to us many fold, and the giving is simply a mental process, because thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect.

Or as Mark J likes to say: give more, get more.

This is more like a clue-bat: an athlete who just sat around reading books about training but never did any would be ridiculed!

But we say we want wealth yet are fearful, greedy, and stingy; say we want happiness but are mean to others, or think of unhappy things all day; say we want health but do and think things we know are unhealthy. And so we get what we think about.

You see, the law of attraction is no different from any other law. It works 100% of the time. You can’t get away from it any more than you can get away from the law of gravity. You reap what you sow.

Right now is a good time of year to think about these things, because while you may be sure of the effect you want, if you don’t understand the cause then you probably won’t get that effect.

Week 9: the seed must be love

I hope all of you have had a good week. Here in the US we have been celebrating our Thanksgiving holiday, which is full of good food (most of which I make in our household, although this year one of my sons helped me make the pies), seeing friends and family, and relaxing.

It’s mostly about love, which is what I want to talk about today.


I didn’t really know what to do my blog on this week, yet several interesting things happened which subby brought together for me this morning on my sit:

  • I’ve had several wonderful emails: Master Key members thanking me for being their guide and friends who are reading my novel telling me how much they like it.
  • My daughter bought me a DVD copy of Bicentennial Man as an early Christmas present, a movie we only had in VHS.
  • After dinner was served, my kids picked to watch V for Vendetta

But let’s back up. There are certain premises I’m basing what I’m about to say on:no coincidences

  1. that every thing which happens or is has a cause. Things don’t just appear. There are no magic wands.
  2. that just as a seed will only sprout into the plant which corresponds to it, a particular cause will produce a particular effect. If you throw a ball up, gravity will bring it down. If you plant pumpkin seeds, you get pumpkins, not daisies or sweet potatoes or turnips.

The truly interesting thing about all these events this week is that they were about love.


I have to admit that I judge people on whether they like Bicentennal Man. I feel it is the most underrated Robin Williams movie out there; it’s the only one I can bear to watch even now, a year after his death.

If you’re not familiar with it, the movie is about a human spirit trapped inside a robot, who spends his entire life trying to deal with a world who sees him as “a household appliance”. He wants recognition as a person. He wants respect. He wants love. And when he falls in love, he helps millions of other people while trying to save the woman he loves from death.


You see, when you plant love, you reap much more than what you sow.

We all see the results in the news of planting hate or fear.

V for Vendetta has many interesting characters in it, but the main two people I really feel the movie is about are V and Inspector Finch.

V says some things I find quite interesting. When he’s trying to help Evey through her mini-breakdown:

See, at first I thought it was hate, too. Hate was all I knew, it built my world, it imprisoned me, taught me how to eat, how to drink, how to breathe. I thought I’d die with all my hate in my veins. But then something happened.

When she begs him not to go through with his plan, that they could run away together, he says, “I can’t.” Why?

It’s because of what he says at the very end:

For 20 years, I sought only this day. Nothing else existed… until I saw you. Then everything changed.

V never comes out and says it, but I think that he knew that if he ran away with her, not only would she never be safe, but he would betray all those people he had called to be there that night.

It was no longer about hate. It was about love.

And then we come to Inspector Finch, who I believe is the most interesting man in the show. Why? Because he was on that panel! He was at the highest place possible in that society yet his love for the truth brought him to where he could no longer ignore what was going on. Without that transformation the ending could never have happened.


What does any of this have to do with the Master Key Experience? Everything. Because when you plant love, when you reach down into your soul with those roots of yours and find what you love, what drives you, what you were born to do, then sacrifice (which a TON of people in the class are still having trouble with) becomes obvious. You know what you’d be willing to give up in order to get what you want. You know exactly what you need to do, to change, to let go of, in order to get it.

So if you’re still struggling with what your sacrifice is, it seems to me that either you haven’t thought the matter through or your motivation isn’t love. Your DMP is still about the cement: the hate, the fear, the whatever the world outside has told you that you should want. Because when the seed is love, the plant is strong and beautiful, and nothing can stand in its way.

Why I’m becoming a guide

Well, it’s one of many reasons, but it’s the most compelling reason for me tonight.

~~ deep and heavy stuff coming; if you’re not in a good place you may want to skip this one ~~

There’s something that’s been bothering me for the past week or so … well, more than that, ever since my silence.

You see, I feel like someone who has the cure for everything. Because this stuff here, the MKMMA, this IS the cure for everything. But it’s just like someone running around saying “I have the cure for everything”, especially when their own life isn’t perfect. No one believes it.

A friend of mine died today. I didn’t get the chance to tell my friend about how we manifest our lives, our illnesses, our troubles, and how we can heal ourselves. I don’t know what was going on in her life, why she became so ill, why she died so young from a disease that took her way too fast, abnormally fast, but today, she is dead.

And I can’t help but feel like what if I had shared this blog with her? What if I had told her about the MKMMA when I was considering it and she would have done this course? Would any of this have helped?

But I didn’t think to tell her and of course we’re on Facebook together and she probably saw my blog posts and didn’t read them. Or maybe with the way Facebook is she never saw them. And who knows? Maybe it really just was her time. But tonight I’m having a problem with that.

I am trying to accept this moment as it is, because the universe is as it should be. I can’t blame myself, and I surely can’t blame her. What good would it do? She has moved on, and maybe that’s all she really wanted, deep down. How could I blame someone for that? I never got to know her well enough to really know one way or the other what she really wanted, and that is another thing I regret, not being in her life enough to know she was dying until she was dying.

I feel sort of hesitant to share these things, because I don’t want to cause anyone pain, and I sort of wish I knew how to turn comments off, because I can just see the comments coming. I really am not blaming anyone, even a little bit — not her, not me, not anyone. But the law of attraction is a law just like the law of gravity. We attract what we intently focus on, and bring it into manifestation. She didn’t seem like someone who worried about her health, but I don’t know. If the law of attraction happened instantly like falling out of a ten story window I think people would believe it more. You wouldn’t blame someone for falling out of a window. But if you knew they might fall and didn’t do anything to warn them …?

If I can help someone, anyone, even just one person, it will be worth spending the time on this and putting my energy into guiding others through this course. Because honestly I don’t want to see any of my friends (or anyone else) manifest their own untimely deaths, whether consciously or unconsciously.

So I feel compelled to support this program in any way I can; it would be like having water in the desert, seeing people dying, and not telling them where it was. I am truly grateful that Mark and Davene trust me enough to allow me to help in this way.

 

 

Press release

At Home With Patricia Loofbourrowfuture me

June 16, 2021 — I’m here with Dr. Patricia Loofbourrow, author of the popular steampunk noir “Red Dog Conspiracy” series, the most recent of which has made the New York Times bestseller list.

A cheerful and animated woman with dark reddish-brown hair, slim, elegantly dressed, and radiating health, she made me feel instantly at home.

It’s a lovely day here — sunny, but not too hot or humid.

We’re sitting here on the front porch of her immaculate home, which she calls “her favorite place in the world” (amazing, since she’s traveled quite extensively) next to her koi pond, which is surrounded with what looks like a kind of grass with some really interesting seed heads and flowers to it … but which Dr. Loofbourrow (who insists I call her Patty) tells me is wild garlic!

Th8b8763d20cd5dfa036452d2ffcbb707fe waterfall runs beside us as we talk, and there’s a light breeze — an absolutely perfect day. The smell of mint is in the air, and frogs sing in the background. There is an impressive view of the harbor from her front porch.

Interviewer: When I first read that you called yourself a “Renaissance woman”, at first I thought, “Wow! That takes a lot of moxy!” But then I looked at your resume … a family physician who taught other physicians out in California is impressive enough, but then you’ve won awards in weaving, photography, art, dance …

PL (gestures around her, with a twinkle in her eye): Don’t forget my gardens!

I: … yes! You won the city contest again this year! What is this …IMG_2272

PL (beaming): Four times in a row now. Next week I will be hosting a garden tour. It’s one day a year, but it’s fun to show off all my plants. (grins)

I: Your gardens are gorgeous. And you designed them yourself?

PL: Yep. (beaming) I got some help with the big stuff, like the hardscape, but I did everything else myself.

I: And your garden website … what do you have there …?

PL: We have over a million unique visitors a month. My edible front yard contest started on the first and we have over 500 entries already. That’s just one of my sites, though. I have several others.

I: I’m going to have to come back one day and hear about all this.

PL: I would love to have you!

I: But tell me about your books. What is steampunk noir?

PL: Oh! At first I was like, “Which books? I’ve written so many.”

I (laughing): Yes, you have … your edible landscaping books, your other novels … but let’s talk about the Red Dog series.

PL (laughing): Okay, you got me …. (serious) Well, I don’t know if you’re old enough to remember the noir films of the 1940’s and 50’s … (laughing) … I remember seeing some of them on TV when I was a kid in the 60’s.

I (looking at her notes): My God, you’re 58? (blinking) You look 40!

PL: I’ll be 59 in August … I guess I picked my grandparents well (laughs) … and I cut out a lot of stress — did you know my hair used to be white?

I: You’re kidding, right?

PL (laughs): I’ll show you the photos …

I: I’d love to see them.

PL: Sure! (smiles) But getting back to the original question about steampunk noir … okay, noir is a film genre — you remember the old private eye and detective stories? The femme fatale, the anti-hero solving cases in the corrupt underbelly of society, and so on … well, I wanted to flip the gender, first of all, and then since I’ve always loved steampunk …

I: … can you explain a little about that?

PL: Oh, steampunk is Victorian retrofuturism … what would happen if the Victorian era of steam engines, zeppelins, corsets and top hats had never ended, and we used that fine craftsmanship aesthetic today, or even in the future.

I: Sounds a bit utopian.

PL: There were a lot of things wrong with that era as well, especially as it played out in America’s Gilded Age. Throw in the issues of Prohibition — which almost did start in the 1890’s — including Mafia-style cabals of family bosses fighting over territory, and that’s where my books begin.

I: Your books are so complex … and you’re publishing close to a book a year! … and you have so much else going on in your life … where do you find the time to do all of this? The energy? (flops back in her chair) You’re making me feel lazy!

PL: I took this course back in 2014 called the Master Key Mastermind Alliance …

I (leans forward): I’ve heard of this!

PL (nods): … and I learned to focus on the things I really want, as well as to let my subconscious mind do most of the heavy lifting. I’m all about fun, anyway — in my mind, if something’s not fun you probably need to reevaluate things … delegate, change direction, whatever needs doing …

I (nodding): Makes sense. But —

PL: … plus I let others into my life instead of trying to do it all myself.

As a bit of an aside, during the interview we had at least ten people either call or drop by, and while her assistants took the calls, Dr. Loofbourrow greeted the visitors as if they were the dearest of friends, and some stayed and sat watching during the interview.

I: … I don’t understand what you just said about the subconscious mind.

PL (leans forward): Well, did you know that your conscious mind uses 2000 connections a second, whereas your subconscious mind uses over 4 billion?

I (shocked): Billion? With a “B”?

PL: Yes. Billion with a “B”. That’s why you can do things like drive a car while you’re talking to other people, singing, or eating. You’re using your subconscious mind to drive, because you’ve done it for so long it becomes automatic. So, bottom line is if you’re doing things just using your conscious mind, you’re really very limited in what you can do, just like you have to think about driving a car or playing a piano when you first learn, and it takes a lot of energy.

But to be able to do useful things with your subconscious mind, you have to put in the time to train the parts of your mind to work together.

I: And you certainly have …

PL (grinning): Thanks.

I: What do you see in your future?226363main_2001_station_t_full

PL (becoming quite animated): You’ll never guess what happened! Okay, this shows the Law of Attraction perfectly. I was contacted the other day by a private space agency that wants me to consult on edible gardens for a space habitat that they’re in the process of building.

I: Wow!

PL: (talks to her assistant, who brings her a copy of Og Mandino’s “The Greatest Salesman In The World”, which has several folded papers in it, takes one out, and unfolds it.) I first wrote this in 2015, and you see that it says that in 2021 I would become a consultant for a private space firm.

I: (stares in shock)

PL (laughs): You act like you’re surprised! I told you that it’s a law, just like the law of gravity.

I: Wow … incredible.

PL: Ha! I’ll send you the link to my blog, where I post about this interview! I had to write that in 2014!

I (stunned): Wow … mind blowing! (checks her watch) We are way past being out of time. So what’s next for Ms. Jacqui? Will she uncover the mystery of who’s behind the Red Dog Gang?

PL (laughs): You gotta wait for the next book!
