MKE Week 24 – Spring Planting – What Will You Harvest?

Spring is here. My husband had already planted kale seeds and today he came in to tell me that we now have baby kale starting to grow. There have been years when we planted seeds and for one reason or another, they never came up. I love having fresh kale to add to my protein shakes in the morning as well as enjoying it in salads. It all starts with a seed and now I will move to a different kind of seed – spiritual seeds.

Over the last 27 weeks, I have been learning to look at my thoughts in a different light. The Master Key Experience is unique in that it is a self-discovery course versus a self-help course.

We were given exercises that at first seemed wacky. I now realize they were ways to get us really engaged with ourselves and send those signals to our brains to create new pathways.

Even though I said the course is self-discovery, it is not self-centered. We were encouraged to write three gratitude’s each day on a three by five card and make stacks that we would flip through regularly. What great reminders these are of our abundant blessings. We also incorporated kindness by looking for it and showing it. All these things are the sprinkling of spiritual seeds every day.

The Master Key, Part Twenty-Two

In Part Twenty-two you will find that thoughts are spiritual seeds, which, when planted in the subconscious mind, tend to sprout and grow, but unfortunately the fruit is frequently not to our liking.  Charles Haanel, Master Key System

In my last blog, I mentioned that our thinking is like starting a train of causation. It made me think about times when we heard that a train car had to be pushed back into the yard for repair. Also, when train tracks are in disrepair, the train cannot proceed properly or safely.

We might have to do something similar with our thoughts. We could start to picture a train whistle blowing to say “Stop” Choose a different route. How do we do that when we have a habit of entertaining negative thoughts? Here is one example from Haanel.

2.  If the state of our health is not all that could be desired, let us examine our method of thinking; let us remember that every thought produces an impression on the mind; every impression is a seed which will sink into the subconscious and form a tendency; the tendency will be to attract other similar thoughts and before we know it we shall have a crop which must be harvested.

3. If these thoughts contain disease germs, the harvest will be sickness, decay, weakness, and failure; the question is, what are we thinking, what are we creating, what is the harvest to be?

4. If there is any physical condition which it is necessary to change, the law governing visualization will be found effective. Make a mental image of physical perfection, hold it in the mind until it is absorbed by the consciousness. Many have eliminated chronic ailments in a few weeks by this method, and thousands have overcome and destroyed all manner of ordinary physical disturbances by this method in a few days, sometimes in a few minutes.”
The Master Key System, Charles Haanel, 22:2-4

This is a stretch to get my head around. States of health can also include mental, emotional, and spiritual. I feel like a baby when it comes to learning how to control my thoughts, but I am making progress, and I am so much more aware.

During the class we learned about the Seven Laws of the Mind. I will mention two of them here.

1.Law of Substitution: We cannot think about two things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind ~ try to think about God instead. If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought. Jesus, the Master Teacher, said, “Resist not evil” ~ meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.
2. Law of Growth: Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

On Amazon, you can find the book “The Seven Laws of The Mind: Master Your Mind Master Your Life” by Mark Januszewski and Lori Enrico. It is an informative read and the exercises in it help you apply the laws. I started with the Kindle version and now I have both.

I referenced a sunflower in my blog last week. They grow big and tall from a seed, then they produce a beautiful flower full of seeds that will be used in a multitude of ways. Also, I love the glorious way sunflowers follow the sun every day.

I realize that each of us can be like that. Striving to be our best unique self, sharing that with others to bless and serve without expectation of reciprocity. Leaning on Jesus, the Master Teacher – the Son and His Spirit (our ever-present gift)!

Wishing you bountiful blessings as you plant your seeds!

You can find more great content here:

  • It has been an honor getting to know you Pat and cheering you on along your Hero’s journey. You are a beautiful soul and shine your light like the amazing sunflower!

  • That was so sweet. Spring is beautiful as you see flowers bloom and your kale is growing. I like how you mentioned the seeds of sunflowers use their seeds in multiple ways as we all plant our own seeds to grow within for a magnificent life.

  • Hey Pat, you are certainly not a baby anymore. You so exemplify the law of giving. That you get what you give. You give so much to the community and your work with the material that you will get what you desire as you as you continue to be conscious of your involution(spiritual def), planting the seed in the creative mind and having that seed evolve with mathematical certainty.

  • Your comment was so beautifully written – Thanks very much. This blogging piece has been an adventure for me as I’m quite a white personality- expressing feeling takes thought and extra effort.

  • Hi Patricia, I too, use the law of substitution on many places in my life. I have found scripture to be an excellent source of positive substitutions when the negative attempts to overtake me. God is faithful. It’s been a blessing to me to read your posts weekly this year.

  • Patricia, I really enjoyed your blog. I liked it so much I read it twice! I liked how you wrote the baby kale were sprouting from the seeds you planted and then talked about thoughts being spiritual seeds. You wrote how what we think about grows and affects our health and outlook on life. There were so many gems you wrote about from the Law of Substitution and Law of Growth to the sunflower following the sun, etc. You definitely put a lot of thought while writing your blog and I’m grateful I took the time to read what you were sharing with the MKE community. Thanks so much for sharing!
