March 28, 2008 & Affirmations

The following is from H. Emile Cady, written in the early 1900's ... with modifications:
Our affirming God mind working both to will and to do, makes us will only the good; and God, the very Divine in us, does the works, hence there can be no failure. Whatsoever we fully commit to the Divine to do, and affirm it is done, we shall see accomplished. These, then, are the four comprehensive affirmations:
First: God is life, love, intelligence, substance, omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence.
Second: I am an expression or manifestation of God, and every moment Its life, love, wisdom, power, flow into and through me. I am one with god, and am governed by Its law.
Third: I am Spirit, perfect, holy, harmonious. Nothing can hurt me or make me sick or afraid, for Spirit is God, and God cannot be sick or hurt or afraid. I manifest my real self through this body now.
Fourth: God works with me to will and to do whatsoever It wishes me to do, and God cannot fail.
Instruction: Commit these affirmations to memory, so that you can repeat them in the silence of your own mind in any place and at any time. Strangely, they will act to deliver you out of the greatest external distresses, places where no human help avails. It is as though the moment you assert emphatically your oneness with God, Supreme Spirit, there is instantly set into motion all the power of omnipotent love to rush to your rescue. And when It has undertaken to work for you, you can cease from external ways and means, and boldly claim: "It is done; I have the desires of my heart."

March 27, 2008 & Treatment for Health

This treatment was written by Jessie, in Toronto. She is a 2nd Year Student with the on-line Science of Mind Class:
Treatment for Health
God is Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent. God is Mind. God is Imagination.
I and God are One. I am part of God as a wave is part of the ocean. I Am made in the image of God and therefore I Am everything that God is. My security lies in the fact that I AM Mind and I Am Imagination. What I image is what I create in my outer world. My senses confirm what I have created through my inner world but rest assured, it can be changed. My changed thoughts can change my outer world. This is my security. This is principle and can be duplicated. I choose to accept full responsibility for my personal world.
My desires are God's desires. I desire perfect health. My inner world is my ultimate reality. Life is easy. Life is effortless. Perfect health comes to me and it comes without struggle. I close my eyes and picture myself in perfect health. I feel strong and vibrant. My body is renewing itself at the atomic and cellular level. The perfect blueprint is embedded in the DNA and my recognition of my Oneness with God brings this renewal to life. All things are possible with God. All things are natural with God. So called miracles and the supernatural are only words for those who do not understand principle and the ultimate reality of life. I am made in the image of God and God creates with His Word and thus I create with my word and my recognition of truth. I expect perfect health for this is God's will for me. My will and God's will are one and the same. I can only desire good for God can only desire good. Although all my senses may deny this truth, I will keep on affirming the truth and it will become my outer reality. As within, so without. My body is in perfect harmony... perfect symmetry... perfectly functional in every way. I am perfect in body and spirit for I am in God and God is in me. What I recognize in my inner world will be recognized in my outer world, and of this I am sure.
I am thankful that I can see perfection. I am thankful that I am secure in this perfect Law that gives me freedom. I am thankful that I am at peace knowing that this principle works in all things and my perfection of health is included in these all things. I am thankful that nothing is too hard for God. I am thankful that it is possible to heal all things for in reality all is God and all is Mind. I am thankful that I have been endowed with imagination and that I can picture perfect health and can feel all the feelings of perfect health.I am thankful for knowing these truths and understanding their simplicity. I am thankful for knowing that I am everything that God is.
I release these thoughts and these words knowing that the process has begun. I release these words knowing that the Law is at work and I can rest in this knowing. I release these affirmations knowing that all things will be attracted to me in the perfect time and in the perfect way to unveil my perfect health.

Keep the faith!

March 26, 2008 & Thankful Heart

I rejoice and give thanks that I have achieved the awareness of thankfulness. Knowing that God is always right where I am, within and without, I know that everything that comes to me, comes to me for my highest and greatest Good. I give thanks for every opportunity that comes to me to strengthen my relationship of Oneness with the Divine. I know and believe that everything is a reflection of my very own consciousness and so I accept that I have the power and the opportunity to change my world each and every moment, one thought at a time. My belief and acceptance that God is All there Is, keeps me motivated to rise in consciousness to a greater and grander acceptance of Good. I know and believe that I have an affluent consciousness, devoid of lack and limitation. I know that abundance is the Truth and poverty is but a sad illusion of separation from God, the Good. I feel blessed. I am blessed. I am thankful. And I rejoice that this is so. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

March 25, 2008 & All Is Well

All is well in my life now. I have confidence that this is so, for I know that God is supporting me in my highest Good right here where I am. I realize that there is no separation from me and God. As the wave is always connected to the ocean, I am always connected with God. I am secure in my knowing that the Presence of God is forever with me, for God Is Life Itself ... and I am a part of Life. I believe and accept for myself a greater joy in living. I believe and accept for myself loving companionship and harmonious relationships. I now forgive my self and all others, knowing that each person that I contact is but a reflection of me. I accept that consciousness is always shifting ... lifting me up to my highest level in all things. I accept the best that my consciousness providesfor me, and I know that as I am grateful for that which is mine today, I open a space in my consciousness to accept an even greater measure of Good tomorrow. As I seek the Truth, I know that more and more Good unfolds in my life. I am grateful for Life, for God, and for this beautiful, abundant Universe in which I live, move, and have my Being. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

March 24, 2008 & Divine Abundance

This treatment was written by Dr. Robert H. Bitzer, founder of the Hollywood Church of Religious Science. Dr. Bitzer paid for this church located on the famous Sunset Boulevard within eight years. From his consciousness of Principle and Abundance, when he made his transition, the church was fully paid for with an excess of $3m dollars in assets. His book, "Collected Essays of Robert H. Bitzer," is available on
". . . . I am become rich, I have found me out substance." - Hosea 12:8
I KNOW that money has no power over me because I am that which creates money. I have the power to give myself wealth or to withhold wealth. I am opulent, abundant. This awareness is my true prosperity and my never failing security. I am one with limitless substance which is God.

Substance which is God cannot be denied, because God could never be poor nor limited. I know that I, too, am the consciousness of that which God is. There is nothing in me that could cause me to be aware of limitation or permit any condition of lack. I am conscious of the limitless abundance which is God.
I live opulently because I know that all that the Father hath belongs to me. I am the prosperous life which God is. I live in that conviction of prosperous being. My consciousness is quickened so that the awareness of opulence and wealth is vitalized. I know my prosperous, abundant self finds its complete fulfillment. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

March 23, 2008 & Easter

I Am the resurrection and the life. I know and accept that "I Am" is the name of God ... and this "I Am" is within me. No one can choose for me, for no one can say "I Am" for me. As I realize that "I Am" is the Power of the Infinite in the midst-of-me, I know that I can use this Power to bring forth the Good results in my life that I choose to experience. Today, I am choosing a greater experience of love, happiness, and joy. I am choosing success and prosperity with an overflow of abundance to share and to spare. I am choosing to remain faithful to God, Infinite Spirit. And I am choosing to know and to know that I know, that there is never a separation from my Good, for the "I Am" within me is my eternal connection with God. I realize that my life is reflecting a greater experience of my acceptance of more and more Good. I am deeply grateful and thankful for the Good that I have experienced today and the Good that is unfolding into my life for the days to come. I know, without doubting, that health, happiness, and love have been resurrected in my life now. And so it is.

Keep the faith!
