The Golden Key

The Golden Key is one of the simplest problem solving methods in existence. I learned it 20 years ago from a unity minister. Emmett Fox wrote it the 1930s and it’s a simple but powerful formula.  I’m going to include a video of someone narrating his essay and a link to the a copy of the original written essay, but first a little background.  Emmett Fox was a New Thought minister of the Divine Science church in New York City. His writings are still relevant today. He gives good practical advice and “alchemical” processes to improve life. His writings are Christian in nature and reference the bible, but you can gain a lot even if you don’t follow that philosophy.  For instance, The Golden Key is to stop thinking about your problem and think about God instead.  You can easily change this into thinking about the universe or love instead, so try to look past the language and find the gift in his message.  Every time the problem pops into your mind, stop and focus on God, or whatever positive thing you’ve chosen to focus on, that’s all there is to it.  You just have to do it every time you think of the problem until it is gone.  The problem gets no air time in your brain.  If worrying about your problems would solve them, they’d already be solved. Try this instead.

Heres the youtube video:

And here is the Orginal Golden Key Essay.

My grandfather has used The Golden Key many times to find lost items, as have I.  Have you used the Golden Key or a simuliar technique in your life? I’d love to hear about it. To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of February. I’ll put everyone’s name in and choose a winner to be announced here around February 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner. If you like my Facebook page in the box on the right side, I’ll put your name in twice.

Love and Alchemy,


  • Great advice! Thanks for sharing, Michelle!

  • Hello Michelle. This is wonderful. I have been thinking about this subject for the past couple days. I was thinking about a quote from the Bhavagad Gita where Krisna tells Arjuna to lay down all dharmas (duties) and seek me and only me. Once again I love this post.

      Thanks. Truth is truth, no matter where you find it. As Einstein said we can’t solve our problems with the same thinking that created them. Thanks for your comment.
