Theme: Unlock the Power!

2017 Step Out in Faith

Abracadabra! … April is the month for inner reflection. April is the month for releasing limits. April is the month for transformation. So, like the magician waving his wand and proclaiming something unbelievable is happening, we get to create something new in our lives!

But you may not know there are several theories about the origin of the word “abracadabra.” The scholars are not in agreement, but some believe it is  an adaptation from either an Aramaic or Hebrew phrase that had a meaning similar to “I create as I speak.” In Science of Mind, we know when we speak our word we are using The Creative Process to transform our thoughts into our experience.

Our book of the month, The New Master Key System by Charles Haanel, is a powerful update of his classic New Thought book. The original book was written more than 100 years ago and reading it is like a review of everything I’ve read by Ernest Holmes, Thomas Troward, Florence Scovill Shinn, Ralph Waldo Emerson and so many others.

We also honor the Easter season this month. This time of the year always reminds me that our humanity and our divinity are interdependent. And when I tap in to the traditions of different faiths and cultures I see the continuous theme of rebirth.

So this month is all about the teaching and the tools we can use to unlock the power of thought in our lives. Each one of us gets to imagine the future we would most like to have. Each one of us has the power to shift our consciousness – and our lives – from darkness to light. Each one of us gets to choose or change our beliefs. And each one of us can transform ourselves in whatever ways are necessary to lead meaningful and successful lives.

Charles Haanel wrote: “The condition precedent to every right action is right thinking.” So this month we get to focus on how to understand and use our mental capabilities to create lives we love. Let’s Unlock the Power of mental thought as we Step Out in Faith together this month.

Book of the Month

The New Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel

The New Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel was originally published in 1912, over a century ago. One would think that the material in it has been superseded by more contemporary stuff, but to conclude such would be an error of magnitude. The New Master Key System is a brilliant presentation about life, the power of positive and creative thinking, and moreover, and possibly most importantly, that with training and discipline, ANYONE can control their circumstances and make their dreams come true.
