THE RADIANT I AM • (A Self-Healing)
by Emma Curtis Hopkins
The listening disciple becomes a preaching apostle. Standing at the Center of
Being and looking outward over the world, instruction is received from every quarter.
But who hath told himself that all the objects he beholds and all their movements also
are but projections of his own judgment? He seems always to be a learner and a
seeker till at the center of his consciousness the fact is suddenly proclaimed that he
himself produced the world as it appears.
Then he no longer listens to information from without; he authorizes from
himself what he would see and hear and touch; even what he would know.
I have been a listening disciple. I have let people and objects and activities
come toward me and impinge upon me till I have been over piled and mountain covered
with thoughts. But now I know that I AM at my own Center, authority over and
through my universe, and I shall ordain my twelve disciples, or my twelve powers, to
spread my Original Nature abroad till from me to the utmost stretches all is my Divine
It is the teaching that all is Spirit, and matter is not obedient shadow-picturing
thereof, which is the final subtle message toward me that makes me see that I AM
what I AM and alter not. Spirit is the gentle Mother doctrine among the doctrines of the
world—gentle but inexorable. She brings to exposure the Man Child, my I AM—who
shall rule all nations with a rod of iron. The iron that is strongest is magnetic. It rules
in the earth by holding all the particles together. It rules in the sun. It rules in all the
spheres. They roll because of the magnet. So all my being has moved because of my
I AM. So all my universe shall wheel to my ordination.
This is my ministry. I am glad to give myself to my Self and to give all my world
to my Self and let my Self do in judgment twelve works upon the earth.
This is my ministry. I have heard all I shall ever hear. I know all I shall ever
know. I now make my Self known.
I make my Self known by speaking, thinking, writing and living the word of my
Self—my I AM. I reign from sea to sea and from the river to the uttermost parts of the
earth. I reign by my knowledge of my own I AM and its last name. The name of my I
AM in the last days of the manifestation of a universe, which I made by not speaking
from my Central Point, is Jesus Christ. The I AM in me is Jesus Christ. I speak boldly
of my Self to the world in which I walk. I think from my Self forward over its surface
through all its substance. I write what I know and I write what I AM, and what I write is
the fibre of all things. They shall feel themselves knitting into transfigured
embodiments by my written words. “Write what thou hearest and give it unto the
churches.” (Rev. 1:11)
I live as a breath of life forward and back through the universe. I AM the conduct
of my world. What I do it does. Conducting from my Center, I satisfy my world with
what I AM. My world can find no flaw in Me. I can find no flaw in my Self. Because I
live at my Center, ye live also. My rod of iron is my being what I AM and knowing it.
“We give Thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, because Thou hast taken to
Thyself Thy great power and hast reigned_” These that are thankful are my powers. I
AM Lord God Almighty to my own powers.
I AM power of Life to the universe. Because I live, all that hath form or name
shall live. There shall be no death nor fear of death throughout the boundaries of
eternal spaces from this day forth forever. That which proceeds forth from Me is Life
and the power of Life forever. As I breathe, the creatures of the sea and air and sands
rise up refreshed and there is no power against their life and no ending of their life
forever from this day forth.
I AM the unending, irresistible Life of the world. I think this—I speak this—I write
this—I live this. This is my ministry which I AM. “Let us give ourselves to the ministry
of the Word.” (Acts 6:4)
I AM the power of Health to the universe. Because I AM holy at my Center, I
make whole wherever I decree. I AM authority. There shall be happy, joyous, free,
fearless Health through this universe from this day. All that have name and shape
shall this day lift up their heads with new refreshment. The elixirs of a fadeless healing
shall steal through them. There shall be no disease or sickness from this day of the
Lord onward. “The inhabitants shall not say, ‘I am sick.’ Anymore.” (Isaiah 33:24)
I AM the unending, irresistible, beautiful Health of the whole universe. I, its
Center, shed my Health abroad. This is my stopless ministry.
I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM the power of strength to the universe. Because I AM unalterable, I AM
omnipotence. I minister myself abroad. All that have shape or name feel stealing
through them a reviving strength from this day which nothing shall ever interfere with. I
strengthen wherever I decree. I AM Authority. There shall be lifting up and strong
godliness throughout all mysteries of height and depth and plain and valley from this
day onward. There shall no faintness seize upon anything. There shall no weakness
touch anything. There shall no feebleness be heard of forever and forever. The
prophecy is fulfilled in me which reads, “When men are cast down, thou shalt say,
there is lifting up.” (Job 22:29)
I AM the Strength of the universe. This is my ministry. Strength that proceeds
from me is irresistible, unending. I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this. I
AM a tower whose radiance is elixir for infinity.
I AM the power of Support to the universe. Everything that hath shape or name
is upborne and prospered in all its ways from this day on. There shall be no lack or
disappointed effort. All shall rise and have self-respect from this day on. I from my
Center AM a radiance of up bearing sustainment through all this universe. There shall
be no poverty, no lack, no want from this day forth.
I AM the sufficiency of my universe. It is my decree. The elixir of bounty, of
prospering effort, spreads forth from me. This is my irresistible, unending ministry. I
think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM a tower whose radiance sheds abroad Protection for infinite kingdoms.
That which speeds forth as my radiance is the Holy Spirit of Revelation. I AM the
unending peaceable defense of the whole universe. By Me all that have name or
shape are safe and secure running, or walking, or flying forever. They shall not fear.
They shall not be attacked. They shall not be hurt. The days of hurting have flown
away. The dreams of danger are past. Things wake as my mighty elixirs spread
through them borne on the streams of my word, my thought, my writings, my life
breaths. They rouse themselves. They are safe forevermore. “They shall not hurt or
kill (destroy) in all my holy mountain.” (Isaiah 11:9)
I AM the security of the infinite stretches and of the near creations. “Peace,
peace to them that are afar off and to them that are near.” (Eph. 2:17) This is my
ministry. I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM the power of Mind to my universe. Even the stones shed a message
intelligible to all other shapes and names because of my being the intelligence of all
things shedding my nature forth without stopping. No foolishness or ignorance shall
ever shame anything visible or invisible from this day on forever. Its Presence is its
wisdom. Its Presence is its information. An elixir of intelligence is on its stopless
march from me at my Center forever through all the reaches of space and formulation.
I decree intelligence. I decree Mind. I think and all the universe thinks divinely like
Me. My Mind is not as the former mind which could change or stop. It is the Jesus
Christ Mind whose word shall not pass away.
I AM a tower whose radiance is unending Wisdom through all things. This is my
ministry, My Logos. I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM the radiant Logos in Mind.
I AM the power of Speech to my universe. My tongue is its tongue. What I say,
it says from its smallest atom to its gigantic formulation. My Central Name is my
tongue of radiance. All that speak, speak of the I AM. One tongue only shall speak.
Its language no man or stone did hear nor could ever hear till I should speak from my
Center. I now speak what I speak from my Jesus Christ Name. So atoms and angels
speak a new heaven and a new earth into their own view, empowered by my tongue
with its elixirs of fire. I speak and the universe utters itself.
I AM a tower whose radiance sheds eloquent Speech through atoms and man.
This is my ministry. I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM the power of Writing—Recording—Witnessing of Jesus Christ and the
Name folded within the gates of that Name. What I write the world writes. I fix my
hallowed glory with my fingers and all things fix themselves to go no more away from
their home forever. The Written Word is the haven of man and of beast. I AM the
inspiring pen of the world. I shall find my inspiration everywhere. Nothing unlike my
writing lives. All except my inspirations vanish. I AM from my Center the fixing and
transfixing pen. I shall not faint or fail to fix my glory everywhere. I AM man’s
inspiration with his pen and I inspire all things to record me as I AM.
I AM a tower whose radiance is the inspiration to pen itself in its divinity in every
shape and name through infinity. I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM the power of Song—Joyous Song that steals in unquenchable smiling
through the universe. I AM the Eternal Smile. As I shed my Self through the atoms
and through the globes, they sing. I AM the joyous song, unquenchable, un-hinderable
forever. No other sound but singing, no other voice but joy is heard from this day forth.
I AM the inspiring joy of my world forever. This is my ministry. I think this—I
speak this—I write this—I live this. There is joy beyond ecstasy. I AM that joy.
I AM the power of Skill for all things. From me there steals forever a quick touch
of skillfulness through all fingers. No child needs to be schooled, no bird needs a
teacher, no angel needs a helper. All can do their part and they can do what they will
to do. There is no incompetency or need of learning from this day on forever,
I AM a tower whose radiance is a skill-inspiring elixir, stopless-eternal. This is
my ministry. I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM the power of Beauty and Judgment. From my poised place I AM the poise
of the ages of men. I judge, and my judgment is what all things go by. They judge like
me. I set the features of things into balance and this is their beauty. I balance the
atoms that flow in the skin and its balance is its beauty. I set the inner parts into
harmony by being the central judgment of eternal facts.
I decree and there is no injustice. Nothing falls into mistake. Nothing is unjust.
The scales of my judgment are the scales in the hearts of all men. They will not fail to
use these scales. And thus order and beauty reign from Pole Star to Southern Cross
and from right-hand to left of the worlds beyond worlds. “He shall not faint or fail till He
hath established judgment in the earth_” (Jer. 23:5)
I AM a scale whose rods are the beams of unbreakable right. My judgment is right judgment. As I judge, so it is.
All the poise that I AM I radiate through all the universe and all things feel the joy
of adjustment. This is my ministry. This is my nature.
I think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this.
I AM the power of Heaven to every atom and to every archangel. From my
Jesus Christ Center of Being I shed Heaven through the spaces. All things breathe of
my radiance. I shed my Self abroad in unending beauty; Heaven breaks in the heart
and on the vision from me to all things, through all things. The old heaven and earth
sink away into forgotten dreams because I have found mySelf, because I know mySelf
Self, because I AM mySelf. I have taken up the authority I had from before the worlds
were spun on the ethers of time.
I decree Heaven and Heaven it is. My will is done on earth and it is all Heaven.
My Kingdom is come and it is the new land of delight that steals on the vision and
reaches the senses of all things. Nothing like the dreams of earth, nothing like the
motions of matter ever reaches my universe. As silently as a moonbeam lights on a
mountain, so silently has Heaven stolen on the gazes of all the creations of infinity.
I AM a tower whose elixirs of radiance reveal the visions of Heaven to the senses
of man. From my Jesus Christ center I AM Heaven from this day forth to all the
universe. This is my stopless, everlasting ministry. I do this. I AM this. My Name is a
folding gate that opens and there is no sound. My Name is Jesus Christ, and in that
Name I AM the Heaven of all this universe.
Its meaning is its influence. I AM its meaning, its influence, its heavenliness. I
think this—I speak this—I write this—I live this. I AM what I Am. I do what I AM by
knowing mySelf as Jesus Christ the Heaven-sending Center of Being, the Heaven sending
