Vivian Hanawalt
Everyone should read this book. The content of Dr. Venice Bloodworth's teaching reflect both the findings of modern psychology and the principles taught hundreds of years ago by Jesus of Nazareth. She referred to the subject matter of her teachings and writings as Spiritual Psychology, and said that her goal was to help humanity by explaining to people that they can THINK themselves into actually being well, happy, prosperous and beautiful. This book will give you a golden return if you study it ...more

I read this at least 25 years ago - the teachings of Jesus meets modern psychology. Blew my mind at the time. Recommended to me by a very hip nun.

I had never heard of Dr. Bloodworth until having stumbled upon, or perhaps I was led to?, “Key to Yourself” and after recently having read several less than stellar books in this genre, I was very pleasantly surprised with “Key to Yourself.” Although her name may not be as recognized as Ernest Holmes, Joseph Murphy , or Neville Goddard, Dr. Venice J. Bloodworth has produced a very readable and empowering book.

From what I can ascertain, “Key to Yourself” was originally published in 1952, toward

I read this book as a library borrow about 9 years ago. Since then I have bought three copies because I keep giving them away. This book changed my life and was the start of the life journey I am on still. My gratitude to the author and encouragement to all who wish to read this book. You will benefit on every level.

The only thing I learned from experience that this book seemed to lack was the emphasis on how crucially important FEELINGS are in the process of manifestation. That's the one thing The Secret had over this one. It really emphasized the importance of feelings. ...more

Extremely powerful, although I started to get the idea that the author was saying the same thing over and over again in many different ways, I think because the basic idea is so simple, but I think simple is good..

Bloodworth was so a head of her time, a 1950's woman with a personal understanding of what thoughts can do to our bodies and how to find the true essence of who we are. This book is a simple read with so much depth. ...more

Awesome spiritual discovery. Shaped a lot of who I am today. One of the mandatory ones, IMO.

Best book of 2019. Hands down.
This is one of the books recommended in You've Got to Read This Book. I've just started. It is much like The Secret (although written back in the 1950's) but has more substance, I think. ...more
This book and the Wayne Dyer one are very similar.

I like how she kind of kept religion out of it more.

Was easy to read and comprehend.

I’ve read many books on thinking positively but this book explained it in such a way that all the others never quite managed. From this book I realized not only the power of my conscious thoughts, but that of my subconscious thoughts, and those are the ones that matter the most. Although I’m now generally a positive thinker, this book has had me forming habits whose results I’m seeing. It’s basically helped do a somewhat reprogramming of my mind. I don’t even know how to properly explain it, it ...more

This book is an awesome read for those who are into personal growth. You can get it with a meditation CD in the back of the book too. I have read it several times, and each time I get something new from it.

The only thing that doesn't make this book a five star is when she says that evil isn't real. Everything else was amazing and very helpful. ...more

“Hold all men in mind as being healthy, happy, and prosperous. When you do this you are helping others and sowing good for yourself. Always send out thoughts of love and service. They will come back to you laden with their kind.” 3 likes
“Man is the highest expression of individual life, because he thinks. We sometimes blame God for our misfortune, but the fact remains that we are entirely responsible for our success or failure, happiness or misery. Man makes himself, creates his own personality, character and circumstances.
Destiny is fixed by subconscious action; you are not the slave of circumstance, but the creator of your own destiny. We attract to ourselves only that which corresponds to our subconscious impressions, and you can always make a new start and create new conditions by changing your subconscious impressions.
If you have thought failure, think success; replace
sick thoughts with thoughts of health. If there is any reason for unhappiness, resolutely put it out of your mind, for LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE, and the more you think of discordant conditions, the more such conditions will manifest for you. CONCENTRATE ON WHAT YOU WANT. When you do think you are impressing that desire on your subconscious mind; NEVER let your thoughts dwell on what you DO NOT WANT.”
