Spiritual mind treatment is a scientific form of affirmative prayer that under- lies the teachings of Science of Mind. It shifts your mind so that your life manifests that which you desire.
If you’re faced with a situation you would like to change, you can use spiritual mind treatment to define and claim what you want. We call that your “Good.” Before engaging in the steps outlined here, you might want to be still and clearly imagine what it is you want. Come right out and say it.
This helps you clarify and focus your thinking. For example, say, “This is a treatment for the success of my new project or a wealthy mindset,” or “This is a treatment for perfect health for myself or another person.”
The simplest method of treatment is divided into 5 steps:
Recognition, Unification, Realization, Thanksgiving and Release.
First, recognize the infinite Spirit of God. For example, remember that God is the infinite Spirit that is in and through all things, that God is all powerful and wise, that God is the perfect source of everything — perfect health, prosperity, happiness, harmony, intelligence, energy. Remember that God is a loving presence and ever available. When you begin to feel good, you have recognized God. This step is as much about feeling God’s presence as it is about intellectually listing qualities.
The next step is to unify with the presence of God. You have already listed and felt the char- acteristics of God. Now remind yourself that you are a part of God and that you, too, have all the qualities of the Infinite Spirit. Your real spiritual self is perfect in every way, even if you face a situation that requires change.
Now imagine how you will feel when you receive what you want. Feel how wonderful it is to realize your dreams. Feel the experiences as though they are happening to you right now. Build mental pic- tures and intensify the thrill and confidence of knowing that you have mastery over all your problems. The goal of this step is to build the strongest possible feeling of already having what you want. The stronger the feeling, the stronger the treatment.
If a friend invites you along for a weekend trip, you are thankful, in advance, to know you’re going, even if the trip isn’t happening immediately. It’s the same in treatment. Know that the omnipotent Spirit is already creating whatever you have treated for — and feel happy, excited and grateful.
You have recognized God and unified with God. You have realized your desire as if it were hap- pening now. You’ve given thanks. Now let it go. Release it to the infinite power and intelligence of God’s law. Release the treatment, secure in the knowledge that your desire is already assured. Be confident, and go about your day.
Use these five steps to make your life — and the lives of others — happier, more fulfilled and aligned with Divine love and order.
God is the Source, You are the Cause.
I promise you that God/ the Universe/The One Verse guiding you, will never let you down, but know the power works to and THROUGH YOU… your part is Listening and Acting on the inspiration you receive.
Your part is to allow the Imagination and Intuition of the One to flow to and through you. Expect it , and then move in synch with it.
If you can perceive the Desire with in as a picture on the screen of your mind, you can hold it in your hand.
But what does DESIRE actually mean?
Desire means Deo Sire ( God Birthed ), so this meaning confirms everything we need to know, so that we have the confidence to step out and trust God, who is the one guiding this experience.
If God is giving birth to something as you, then let it come forth. Despite what the evidence of the senses say and despite what your family or friends opinions are, and despite what your bank account says or the economy says, God is saying something to you and this is YOUR life.
Listening to the voice of God within, is YOUR solution!
God never asks if you can afford to do something, because the provision has already been made.
Today, decide to walk by faith not by sight. Decide to step out and accept the greatness handed to you, because today, is your day and it is a good day!
Look with fresh eyes to see the vision within you?
The Daffodil Garden Principle
We parked in a small lot adjoining a little stone church. From our vantage point at the top of the mountain, we could see beyond us, in the mist, the crests of the San Bernardino hills, they seemed like dark, humped backs of a herd of elephants. Far below us the fog-shrouded valleys, hills, and flatlands which stretched away into the desert.
On the far side of the church, I saw a pine-needle-covered path, with towering evergreens, manzanita bushes and an inconspicuous sign, “Daffodil Garden.”
We each took a child’s hand, and I followed Carolyn, my friend, down the path as it wound through the trees. The hills sloped away from the side of the path in irregular dips, folds, and valleys, like a billowing skirt.
Live oaks, mountain laurel & sage bushes clustered in the folds, blanketed by the misty air.
We turned a corner on the path, and I looked outward.
Before us lay the most glorious sight, unexpectedly and completely splendid. It looked as though someone had taken a great vat of gold and poured it down over the mountain peak and slopes where it had run into every crevice and over every rise. Even in the mist-filled air, the mountainside was radiant, clothed in massive drifts and waterfalls of daffodils. The flowers were planted in majestic, swirling patterns, great ribbons and swaths of deep orange, white, lemon yellow, salmon pink, saffron, and butter yellow.
Each different-colored variety. I learned later that there were more than thirty-five varieties of daffodils in the vast display. It was planted as a group so that it swirled and flowed like its own river with its own unique hues.
In the center of this dazzling display of gold, a great cascade of purple grape hyacinth flowed down like a waterfall of blossoms framed in its own rock-lined basins. There were several resting stations, paved with stone and furnished with Victorian wooden benches and great tubs of coral and carmine tulips. As though this were not magnificence enough, Mother Nature had to add her own grace note — above the daffodils, a flock of bluebirds flitted and darted, flashing their brilliant sapphire color with breasts of magenta red. As they dance in the air, they were like jewels above the glowing daffodils.
The brilliance of the daffodils was like the glow of the brightest sunlit day.
Five acres of flowers stood before us! I asked Carolyn, "who has done this?” I was overflowing with gratitude that she had brought me here, even against my resistance. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
“Who?” I asked again, almost speechless with wonder, “And how, and why, and when?”
“It’s just one woman,” Carolyn answered. “She lives on the property. That’s her home.” Carolyn pointed to a well-kept A-frame house that looked small and modest in the midst of all that glory.
We walked up to the house, my mind buzzing with questions. On the patio, we saw a poster.
"Answers to the Questions I Know You Are Asking”.
The first answer was a simple one. “50,000 bulbs”. The second answer was, “One at a time, by one woman, two hands, two feet, and a little brain.”
The third answer was, “Began in 1958.”
There it was. The Daffodil Garden Principle.
Yesterday I broke a crystal vase that was important to me.
It was given to me by someone I love, and I was really upset with my clumsiness.
My husband, seeing my distress, was soothing and calm, and said, “Let me see what I can do with this.” While I continued to rant at myself, he quietly took the pieces away, worked his magic and made it like new again.
When he brought it back to me his face was filled with sweetness, and it occurred to me that this repaired vase was a gift of love.
I began thinking about all the ways he shows me he loves me. Words are nice, but his actions speak volumes, and I’m so very blessed to have him in my life.
I then thought of a woman I know who complains that her husband and children don’t love her.
She says they never say it, and she feels that nobody cares. However, when I look at her family, I realize that there is a lot of love being given. She just doesn’t recognize it so doesn’t know how to receive it.
When her husband goes to work, so that she can do what she wants, which is stay home and raise the children, that’s a gift of love. When her adolescent son offers to pick up something at the store so she won’t have to pack up the smaller kids to go out, that is his way of telling her he loves her.
Love is all around us, but we’re often like my friend who expects it to come in a specific form. When it doesn’t, we miss it and feel unhappy & unloved.
May be we can reflect on being aware of ALL the ways people show us love, and being happy to receive it in whatever form it’s given.
Let's be noticing that happiness & love is within us and all around us.
