Survive! I must Survive!

You don't have to keep the pace to Survive


Lights, Camera, Action Can I keep this pace in which we live? Hardly a breath, no time for thoughts, must keep going, doing, and in constant motion?

The inner mind a constant jabber?

Watch more than surviveOur creator, God created us just this way… To capture all that is going on around.

The colors, the patterns, the smell, the movement, the light, the shadow..

 are captured in the blink of an eye. Saved for use, whenever needed.

How then do we learn to pause, to ponder, to observe, and to use this gift?

I took

  • pushing,
  • forcing,
  • doing,
  • moving,
  • perfecting
  • driving for results… and traded it for …

Survive! Live! Dance!

    • beauty,
    • reflection,
    • a laugh,
    • a smile, and
    • an unfoldment of life … at it’s perfect pace.

3 Ways I Found

Silence, quietly pondering, sitting – DAILY –

Survive! In Silencesometimes a battle, but ever vigilant.

Treasured time.

Time for reflection,

renewal, inspiration and especially personal revelation. I love the pause, the break, the breath, the visualization, the courage, the balance, the beauty that leaves a wake of hope, of peace and love.

Observing, directing my thoughts, my focus, analyzing and trusting.

Survive! Step back and Observe

Reborn by asking?  Finding answers… Revitalized with understanding.  Stepping back so eyes can see clearly, not perfectly, but clearly.

Exercising agency; gaining personal power.

Learning, opening … ever the student, ever the disciple.

My mind surviving in it’s honored place atop the gift of a body.


Fear recognized and cherished then vanishes.  Habits observed,  those that serve are welcomed and those that don’t are not and with effort changed.

Responsibility accepted for everyday happenings. Survive! Be defenseless

And sometimes…tears. Defenseless in all situations, I apology often. On my knees in praise and joy for life just the way it is. Successes celebrated! Smiles abound!


This is more than Survival..This is Truly Living…Full, Vibrant, Vulnerable

The Life I live everyday! Bright! Peaceful! Full! Scary! Wonderful!

You can, too!  Join Me…

1 Way to Be Happy and Self Empowered

Share Button

I was asked this question today….


Happy bubbles up from deep inside me. JOY! Love!

Happy is what would grow from my planted heart! May I explain…?

2014, just 2 short years ago…my answer would have been much different. Worried and anxious. Tired and weary. Wondering how I could possibly go on let alone succeed. The weight of the world rested heavily on my shoulders.

A year, well actually, 6 months later I felt different…Heck, I was different!

images-300Honestly…Change…That makes all the difference! I had changed! Now, I’ve had plenty of people look at me with…well like this

No Longer did I give my control to someone else’s negative, pessimistic comments! I felt Empowered…Self-Empowered!  Let me wet your appetite just a bit.

I took charge, did the work and changed!

I can just hear the skeptics…That’s it? That’s all you had to do…decide to change and voila, poof, abracadabra  you’re different? Well, not so… not so!

I learned about the Master Key System from a video featuring Mark J..

I didn’t have any money to buy the system, but then I heard Mark say, “You can’t buy this. We award scholarships and the process starts in Sept”  September! I thought but it’s July! I want this NOW!  I got on image-26-2.24.11the waiting list. I even tried to get on the list again…just to be sure, but I got a message that said, “You’ve already applied for this list” So I waited and waited. I told some other people about it; they got on the list, too. September seemed a long way off.

When the application process started, I was so excited that I told some more people about it. They applied, too! And then………much to my delight……….. I got accepted! We ALL did! The list closed quickly!

When the program started, Oh Wow! I met Debbie face to face. No more excuses, No more victim, No more just existing in life! It was work! I learned so many skills and so much Truth. I had so many ‘AhHa’s!’ I applied what I learned. I found that I thought differently. I expressed myself better. I was a better observer. I gave up some old bad habits for New Found Habits. These habits brought happiness and joy!

When you follow through with commitments you have made to others and to yourself, there is a confidence that emerges. This empowers you to try again and even if you fail. You get up, brush yourself off and start again! When you start again and again you develop a trust in yourself. I just kept on Failing My Way to Success!

So, if it’s OK…I promised to Share with you 1 of my New Found Habits.

 I ALWAYS keep my Promises 

This is a phrase that resounds throughout the Master Key Experience. I found that when I kept my promises I was Happier and more productive. Start  small…pick a small simple task, not one that absolutely has to be done…like say, take out the trash, but one like take the donations to the Good Will by_(pick a date-1 week from now)write it down, read it EVERYDAY, Accomplish it and Celebrate! Do this every week. It’s been 2 years…I’m still doing this! I look at it daily! AND I trust that I will do what I say!

Be Happy NOW

Be Happy Now

Seems pretty easy…HUH?  Some nights I’d be up until midnight making sure I had the task completed…But I did It and I empowered myself to Succeed!

Give it a Try?  What have you got to loose?

What to do Now Upon Commencement…

How could something so loud and blindingly bright
Fill my soul with this incredibly, amazing delight??

IMG_0323Flowers vivid, bright, wild and bold
Sewn into a quilt that is now quite old.
Once not so loved because of the print
So garish and loud to look you must – squint!

It inspired the creativity of my kiddies around
As forts and castles emerge from anything found
It protected many imaginary soldiers from harm
Enveloped them, so they could snuggle and warm

Washed and dried and folded today
Flooded with memories from just yesterday
A treasure for me to wrap, drag and play
My grandchildren now left, who’d come to stay.

Violet Larsson Olpin

Right before Grandma lost her sight

Fabric picked just for me by my Grandma GG
With eyes which were quite Unable to See
Mom and her sisters stitched it with such care
Through so many washings it shows little wear

Gratitude and Love for a Grandma so dear
Who often would whisper so soft in my ear…
While visiting, she’d pat the couch, come and sit
“Life is so Beautiful, You Just Keep Working at It”!

A change of thought has come over me
Recognition of sorts – Things I just wouldn’t see
How could something so loud and blindingly bright
Fill my soul with this incredibly, amazing delight?

Well? I just didn’t know that my negative view
Made such a difference in just how I construe
Thought is the creative activity behind any endeavor
I like this New me – Positive Now and Forever!


We’re at completion Again…So many of you have asked me what is it that you do in the Master Keys? What’s it all about?

It’s Change – – well … let me be more precise.

It’s about using these …

  • 7 Laws of the Mind – Forgiveness, Suggestion, Practice, Relaxation, Dual Thought, Subconscious, Growth.
  • Law of Least Effort – I use Acceptance in recognizing that situations are, I take Responsibility for my actions, I practice Defenselessness
  • Master Key System – How to train your mind…literally to create your world
  • Emerson’s Law of Compensation – Give More to Get More
  • Franklin Makeover – Click for a Free Link  “…a bold project to arrive at moral perfection”
  • Emmet Fox’s 7 Day Mental Diet – Learning to remove Negative thoughts within 7 seconds!

… to create this – I know have and, more importantly, implement the tools to live my ideal life in this world, Now!images-56

Take a look back at the list above. These sources have been around for a Century or more…I had never heard of them! Never!

It’s ultimately a course that puts you on a path to discovery, and then you work hard and learn to Always Keep YOUR Promises and find successes all along the way!

The Journey…It’s how you view what’s placed on your path. We all have paths! We put stuff on it. Sometimes others add stuff. What do you do with it? Where do hard things take you? Learn to find JOY! In All things.pablo

And Remember!  Commencement means you are just beginning!

Week 21 MasterKeys – Old Threads are Unraveling

Share Button

Telas“The old threads are unraveling,
Get your needles ready.
We are stitching a new quilt
of humanity.
Bring your old t-shirts, worn out jeans, scarves,
antique gowns, aprons,
old pockets of plenty
who haveOld jeans held Earth’s treasures,
stones, feathers, leaves,
love notes on paper.
Each stitch
A mindful meditation.
Each piece of material
A story.

The more color the better,
so call in the tribes. Threads of browns, whites,reds, oranges
Women from all nations12717231_1063644887025568_5741927553245821690_n
start stitching.
Let’s recycle the hate, the abuse,
the fear, the judgment.
Turn it over, wash it clean, ring it out to dry.

It’s a revolution
of recycled wears.
Threads of greens, blues, purples
Colorful thread
of peace, kindness, respect, compassion
are being stitched
from one continent to the next
over forests, oceans, mountains.
The work is hard
Your fingers may bleed.
But each cloth stitched together

Brings together a community.
A world, our future world
Under one colorful quilt.
The new quilt of humanity.”

~Julia Myers

This Poem says it all!

I’m unraveling my old to make a “new quilt of humanity” within myself, one of peace, tranquility and harmony!

Week #18 – Le’Go – 1 Necessary Step

Share Button

I’ve got a few blogs I’d like you to see…this one is powerfully written, by a friend of mine.Lego-in-the-sand-227x300lego-figure-from-minecraft-found-on-the-beach-220x300

Dawn Andersen

“There are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear. From love flows happiness, contentment, peace, and joy. From fear comes anger, hate, anxiety and guilt. It’s true that there are only two primary emotions, love and fear. But it’s more accurate to say that there is only love or fear, for we cannot feel these two emotions together, at exactly the same time. They’re opposites. If we’re in fear, we are not in a place of love. When we’re in a place of love, we cannot be in a place of fear.” Elisabeth Ross

We often live in a state of fear and it keeps us frozen in our path unable to progress! But through the Master Key Experienced, I’ve learned some skills…so necessary to succeed in moving past fear…

“Like attracts like…mental vibrations respond ONLY to the extent of their vibratory harmony…he who gives his heart in his work is certain to meet with u bounded success. He will give and continually give; and the more he gives, the more he will receive.” Law of Attraction aka the Law of Love!

Love is the key – the #1 necessary step to overcome Fear…just Le’Go! Ok?
