I recently was thinking about being accepted or excepted. You see, over the last few months, the cement had started piling up on me. In searching for the reasons I was letting the cement build up I turned to my Master Key Experience Staff for suggestions. We talked about being Accepted by other people.
I then wrote out an affirmation on 3 index cards. “I am Excepted as I am.” Reading the cards for a week before I realized that I had spelled the word incorrectly. I then wrote another set of 3 index cards. “I am Accepted as I am.”
What was Subby (my subconscious) trying to tell me? Reading “Excepted” daily and thinking “Accepted.” It was definitely telling me to pay attention to what I was asking for – being accepted or excepted.
• Accepted: generally approved; usually regarded as normal, right, etc.:
• Excepted: not included in the category or group specified.
• Accept and except are frequently confused, but they are totally different words. Accept (pronounced [ak-sept]) is a transitive verb meaning to willingly receive, allow, or approve of something or someone. Except (pronounced [ek-sept] is mainly used as a preposition meaning “excluding” or “apart from.”
Going through the Master Key Experience last year, I learned that what you tell Subby should be clear and concise. It doesn’t make mistakes.
Lessons Around Being Accepted or Excepted
1. You can’t control other people. Not even in the slightest, and it is a complete waste to ever assume you can. Control your mouth. Control how you treat people. Control your attitude. Guard your heart and keep it genuine. Keep showing up and let that be enough.
2. Other people aren’t you. They don’t think like you or feel like you. Their experiences belong to them alone. They approach situations differently, and their outlook is nothing like yours. Don’t expect them to handle things exactly like you do. They aren’t you. They’re them. Do your best to love them for it.
3. Some people are never going to like you, and there isn’t necessarily a rhyme or reason. Your life will improve significantly as soon as you learn this.
4. Sometimes you’re the bad guy. Sometimes you’re the one acting foolish. Sometimes you’re the one with the toxic trait or two. Check your own heart. Clean out the junk and grow from it. Apologize, and now that you’ve learned—take that wisdom, do better next time, stay humble, and give others an awful lot of grace along the way.
5. There is a purpose to it all. There is beauty everywhere. That failed friendship will teach you how to do the next one better. That heartache will remind you to be gentle with other people. That loneliness will help you appreciate connection when you do find it—and you will find it. Not every season lasts forever, but every season does produce something precious eventually, even if it’s just a fresh perspective.

We should not be looking for others’ approval of being accepted or being an exception to them. Just look for what you like or love best and “Do It Now!”
It is often true that conditions of fear, worry, poverty, disease, inharmony and evils of all kinds dominate us by reason of false suggestions accepted by the unguarded subconscious mind. All this the trained conscious mind can entirely prevent by its vigilant protective action. It may properly be called “the watchman at the gate” of the great subconscious domain.The Master Key System Haanel, 2:14
