I was born and raised mostly in Minnesota, the youngest of 5 girls. I never went onto college as my sisters did, because the only two things I had ever wanted to do was work with horses or pursue music and I figured I would not need a conventional education for either of those. I received an opportunity for the horse training within a few days of graduating from high school, so I left home at an early age and pursued this for many years. Horribly misguided by people I worked for in the horse industry, I eventually became disillusioned and moved on, never looking back. I then went into music, which was my second love and was an aspiring singer/songwriter part time for another 10 years while I worked administrative jobs on the side. This also went to the wayside when it did not take me where I wanted to go. These days I am married and currently live in Colorado with my husband, two dogs Suki and Stanley and a mustang gelding named Paiute.
In looking back on my life I could never understand why I would get so close to reaching my dreams and goals, but then watch them slip away as easily as they had come. As a young horse trainer , I had two separate and great opportunities to work for a former world champion rodeo star and another for a well known horseman and trainer in CA. I rejected both of these opportunities , because my head was not in the right place to accept them. I had unknowingly manifested both opportunities and without realizing what I had done, was unable to keep them. The same thing happened in the music industry. I had the experience of recording demos in both Austin Texas and Nashville at separate times, and I was given the opportunity to be represented by a few producers in Nashville as well, both eventually going nowhere. These hit and miss opportunities that never really got off the ground, soon became an up and down journey that I went through for several years, until I started studying Universal Laws of Manifestation and The Master Key System.
Early on, when I first started studying laws of positive and negative attraction I felt inspired, but was barely scratching the surface. Telling someone to simply think positively is not going to leave a lasting impression, so I fell back into my old ways of finding opportunity and losing opportunity. Years later, I dove back into it again, but I was still not quite “getting it”. I had so many questions and felt things were missing in some of the teachings about how manifestation and getting in sync with Universal Laws of Attraction worked. With the music and horses falling to the wayside, I thought I was going to be stuck working mindless admin jobs for the rest of my life. I eventually found The Master Key System written by Charles Haanel and that’s when things really came together for me. His explanation of why Universal and Natural Laws of Attraction work by bringing science and spirituality together, instead of separating them as we have been taught, really made a lot of sense to me. The questions were answered and the holes were filled in. It was the connection of science and spirituality that made this information a little different than the others. Nothing I had read, heard or seen had gone quite this deep before.
I started to use The Master Key System and saw that opportunities were coming to me a lot more easily than in the past and I was able to keep them. Through years of trial and error and in using these principles, I launched my first successful small business as an equine massage therapist. I had more clients than I knew what to do with and had gained a decent reputation for my work. I have found physical comfort and a quality of life after dealing with chronic pain for years. I have found self acceptance, self worth and self awareness, all because of The Master Key principles. I have continued to use these principles for every part of my life, both physically and mentally. I am a lifetime student and a true believer of these wonderful methods.
