“...for with God all things are possible.”   Mark 10:27 

                                                I Set My Intentions 

I recognize the One Power and Presence expressing in, through, and as me in this sacred unity of consciousness, I resound with Spirit and It shows up in my life as wisdom and right action.  I Am that I Am.  I am a beloved of the Beloved.  Spirit is in and all around me now and always.  I am surrounded by Divine love and connect to the embrace of God. 

I wisely set my intentions, allowing nothing to disturb or distract me from giving my undivided attention to my purpose.  I am led by Spirit to easily accomplish all things necessary for the fulfillment of my desires.  Knowing each time I focus my attention, I create a new beginning. I am confident new and wonderful ways of living appear as present realities in my life.  In clarity of purpose, I keep my focus on my highest priorities as I intelligently and peacefully move in the direction of my goals, accepting them as already completed in the absolute realm of Divine Mind.  Any challenges are transformed into wonderful blessings.  I experience joy, fun and I am inspired to move forward.  When I feel out of alignment with Spirit I prayer and drop in the creative vortex.   I let go of any past beliefs that may have held me back by letting them simply fall away.  I am filled with the energetic vibration of the Oneness of God which gives me strength, courage and determination to march forward toward my divine purpose.  I hear the still, small voice whispering It’s wisdom and guidance to me with each step.  I am never alone for I know my angels, guides and teachers are there when I ask for assistance. 

Grateful this Truth exists for me, I wisely set my priorities and my vision for an inspired life this year of 2012.  Spirit moves me toward the people, places and opportunities that create incredible, dazzling outcomes.  I release these words of truth into the Infinite Law of the Universe.  I feel it and I claim it now as done.  And so it is.  Amen

The heart is the thousand-stringed instrument that can only be tuned with love.” Hafiz 

I Celebrate the Holidays in Joy

I affirm the Presence of the One Universal Mind, the Creator.  Spirit is the essence and the energy that expresses through all there is and all that will ever be.  I know I am forever united with this One, and It is expressing through me right here and now. 

As the holiday season unfolds, I take time to turn within.  I let go of the busyness of my daily activities.  I am calm and relaxed.  I center and listen in silence and stillness.  I choose to enjoy and relish each day of the holidays.  I live in the now moment.  I have ample time to accomplish all I need to do, for this is Divine time.  My focus is on maintaining a higher consciousness.  This is a time for celebrating all humanity and recognizing that every person is a gift from God; each on is special and unique.  In this beautiful season, I honor unity and diversity.  I hold goodwill toward all in this season of love. 

With deep gratitude, peace, love and joy, I release my word to the universal law, knowing it is returned to me multiplied.  I give thanks and feel the gratitude for all my blessings.  It is done.  And so it is.  Amen

“I am that place through which God flows”  - Joel Goldsmith, Practicing the Presence 

I Am a Channel for God 

God, the Living Spirit Almighty, is the supreme author of Good, I am created in God’s image and I am a channel through which God flows.  The Spirit of God in me, as me is one with the Spirit of God in All. 

The world in which I live is a place where beauty, peace, love, joy, and prosperity freely flow and are in perfect circulation.  Flowing unimpeded through me, good takes shape as the answer to every prayer and the solution to any challenge I encounter.  Its increase prospers me and inspires my soul to open to my unconditional blessings that are always present.  I let go of the past and anything that is not serving me and simply focus on the present moment.  I frequently am aware of my good and give thanks for its omnipresent activity in every area of my life.  At home, at work, and at play, every endeavor is stamped with the seal of Divine approval.  Life itself supports all I do as I am a vibrational match to Divine good.  I embody unconditional love and acceptance for myself as I am One with Divine expression. Deeply aware of my responsibility as a vessel of Divine expression, I offer my prayer of unconditional love to all beings, knowing that as I send out this wave of love it comes back to me embracing me richly and fully.  In gratitude, I release my word to the Law, joyful in the knowledge that I am a place through which God flows.  It is done. And so it is.  Amen

We should daily train our thought to recognize the Spirit in everything we do, say, or think” 

Ernest Holmes, the Science of Mind 

                      My Faith is Strong

There is One Presence and Power in the Universe, God, the all-loving, all-giving One.  I unite in consciousness with the Divine and affirm that I live, move, and have my being where only good exists.  Today, I see wholeness expressing in every aspect of my life.  I cherish the good that flows to me from Spirit and let it expand into my life.  I feel alive and know I am guided, directed, inspired, and blessed by the Divine regardless of the outer circumstances.  I affirm and know the Truth that God is my Source, which appears in myriad ways-perfect health, prosperity, creativity, loving relationships, and more. I let go of and negativity with a deep unabiding faith that The Divine loves and supports me.  In the stillness, I listen for Spirit’s guidance and I am filled with confidence as I move forward in my life journey.  Being open and receptive to the inspiration of the Beloved, my faith is strong and revitalized.  I know I am one with the One, I joyously experience the wholeness of life.  I claim and accept the light and love of God within me. With gratitude, I release this word to the Law, knowing it is the Truth of my being now and always.  And so it is.  Amen

Happy Thanksgiving to All

 

“If ever we find ourselves at odd with peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”  -Mother Teresa

I Accept and Bless Myself and Others

 

God is the infinite creator and I am one with that source, Divine love and creativity.  I am a beloved of the Beloved. I am another way love is happening on the planet. 

Acceptance is a powerful word for it implies a willingness to listen and be open.  I am willing to let go of judgment.  Therefore I willingly listen to the different views of others without having to embrace them, I accept people of different faiths, cultures and beliefs within my family, workplace or spiritual community.  Each person is the essence of God-divinely created and divinely guided.  I accept and bless myself and others with unconditional regard and unconditional love.  I let go of self judgment of any past mistakes or perceived shortcomings.  I give myself the freedom to make mistakes, to have a unique point of view and to continue to learn and grow as a spiritual being bringing the Oneness of God into my consciousness.  With this acceptance of myself and others, I embrace differences and celebrate the uniqueness, gifts and talents of each individual.  I seek to understand and I accept and bless my family and friends during this season of Gratitude.  I hold a space of love knowing I call upon Divine wisdom to guide me.  I act in wise ways with love and understanding.  I see the light of God within all I meet. 

I am grateful for this realization and I am filled with a sense of peace and clarity.  Love is always the answer I seek.  My heart is filled with love.  I know I am held and adored always by pure Spirit.  I release this prayer into the Infinite Law and simply allow it to be.  It is done.  And so it is.  Amen

"Before me is a clear path and I proceed." - Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker, "Richer Living"

     I Am Guided by God

God is Infinite Source.  The Perfect Light of God shines brightly and illuminates my pathway.  The Omnipresence of It’s brilliance radiates throughout all creation.  This light glows from my innermost being, for the light of Spirit comes from Infinite Source and shines in me as me.  I am guided by this Divine light.

In this moment, I feel the light of pure Spirit.  I know It inspires my decisions and actions to move forward powerfully.  Any confusion, uncertainty or procrastination is gone.  I am motivated and launch into productive, enjoyable activities that are joyful and prosperous leading to success.  My accomplishments are illuminated and I am inspired to create with this influx of creativity for I am propelled by Spirit and guided by Divine love.  I put my emotional issues and negative beliefs and worn out habits aside and simply let God have Its way with me.  This vibrational high road is based on spiritual principle and targets my soul’s purpose.  All good things are attracted to me.  My health and wholeness radiate my inner light and I am transformed.  Abundance and prosperity shine with amazing resources, opportunities and people to support my heart’s desires.  Love flows into all my relationships and illumines all I meet.

My truth is revealed with grace and ease and I follow the guidance of my inner wisdom.  God's perfect work is made manifest by means of me, and I am blessed.  I am filled with a sense of gratitude which attracts and expands the flow of good to me. I release my word into the Law for I know these words have power and grace.  It is done.  And so it is.  Amen.

"The value we must place on and in ourselves must rise from an awareness of ourselves as being important to God for Its expression."   -Ernest Holmes

I Completely Love and Honor Myself

God is Source.  God is the Infinite Love in which all things live, move, and have their being.  I am an individualized expression of the Divine essence.  I am a place where God expresses Itself.

My consciousness expands with the ideas that I am a beloved of the Creator and a Beholder of the perfection of God. I commit to loving and honoring myself and acknowledging my unique and powerful gifts.  My relationships are reflections of unconditional love and mutual respect.  The Truth of my being is that I am one with all that is seen and unseen.  The giving and loving-kindness of Spirit governs every area of my life expression.  Infinite Intelligence prospers and enriches my inner and outer world of affairs.  I live in harmony with the Oneness of Spirit and experience the mystical realm of opulence and bliss.   As I focus on the indwelling Presence of God, my awareness of love deepens, and my heart is filled with happiness, warmth, and a connection to all.  I bask in appreciation and realization of God within as the center of my existence.

With a deep sense of gratitude, I reflect on my interdependence with God, the living Spirit Almighty, and declare my own divinity.  I Am that I Am, I Am what Thou Art.  My word is now released to the Law of Mind, and I know with trust and faith it is fulfilled.  It is done easily and effortlessly. And so it is.  Amen

"To the open-mind all things are possible because all ideas are available."  -Raymond Charles Barker

 All Things Are Possible

God is the Source and Intelligence creating perfect life and operating in wholeness, infinite potential, and possibility.  This Creative Intelligence is alive in me, constantly working in harmony with my thinking, bringing forth a reality that matches the spiritual consciousness I hold as Truth.

My mind is open and receptive, surrounded by and immersed in limitless God-ideas.  I choose this expanded awareness, trusting completely in results unfolding from my spiritual nature.  All things as possible for me as Spirit provides every idea and opportunity necessary to fulfill my self-expression.  Any limiting beliefs evaporate, for I know nothing is withheld from me as I recognize my God nature.  I have complete faith in the I Am connection within me feeling It flow in, as and through me.  It is unfolding as every activity taking place in all of my life's experience.

I accept this realization with gratitude and joy, secure in knowing I am living an inspired life filled with Divine insights and revelations.  My life reflects this consciousness as I embrace the wonderful possibilities and outcomes now.  My heart is filled with love and deep thanksgiving for this thing called life.  It is done. And so it is.  Amen.

From the October 2011 Science of Mind magazine the daily guide for Oct. 23, 2011 by Ernest Holmes  Celebrating 50 years     

 

I Receive Because I Ask in Faith

"Verily, Verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Beloved in my name, the Divine will give it to you."  John 16:23

"Ask and ye shall receive" is one of the most wonderful statements ever uttered.  It implies that there is a Power which can and will honor your request.  But it is only as you let go of the lesser that you can take hold of the greater, only as you drop confusion that you can entertain peace, only as you transcend doubt and fear that you can be lifted up to the hilltops of the inner Life.  In asking, you must identify yourself with the greatness of the Spirit.  Permit your consciousness, through faith, to rise to a greater and broader realization of that Divine Presence which is always delivering Itself to you.

Affirmations

Through the quiet contemplation of the omniaction of Spirit, I learn to look quietly and calmly upon every false condition, seeing through it to the other side, to the invisible;e Reality which molds conditions and recreates all of my affairs after a more nearly divine pattern.  I know that my word transmutes every energy into constructive action, producing health, harmony, happiness, and success.  I maintain my position as a divine being here and now.  I know that in this consciousness of Reality is the supply for my every need-physical, mental, or spiritual-and I accept that supply in deepest gratitude.  As I am filled with Reality, I permit It to flow into my world of thought and action, knowing that It brings peace, harmony, and order all around me.  There arises within me limitless faith in the unconquerable Presence, the perfect Law, and divine action.  And so it is.  -Ernest Holmes

This week I am using a daily guide from the October 2011 Science of Mind magazine to celebrate the magazines eighty-fourth anniversary.  It is written by the Science of Mind founder Ernest Holmes.  Enjoy!

"For as the Father/Beloved hath life in himself; so hath He given to the Son/Daughter to have life in himself/Itself... John 5:26

My Word Accomplishes

You are either attracting or repelling according to your mental attitudes.  You are either identifying yourself with lack or with abundance, with love and friendship or with indifference.  You cannot keep from attracting into your experience that which corresponds to the sum total of your states of consciousness.  This law of attraction and repulsion works automatically.  It is like the law of reflection-the reflection corresponds to the object held before a mirror.  Life is a mirror peopled with the forms of your own acceptance.

How careful, then, you should be to guard your thoughts, not only seeing to it that you keep them free from doubt and fear-accepting only the good-but, equally, you should consciously repel every thought which denies that good.

Affirmations

I know that my word penetrates any unbelief in my mind, casts out fear, removes doubt, clears away obstacles, permitting that which is enduring, perfect, and true to be realized.  I have complete faith and acceptance that all the statements I make will be carried out as I have believed.  I do everything with a sense of reliance upon the Law of Good; therefore, I know that my word shall not return unto me void.  I accept this word and rejoice in it.  I expect complete and perfect results from it.  -Ernest Holmes

Prayer From Rev. Maryum

God is the perfection of all, I am one with that divine essence, that purity, and that loving sweet vibration, I claim and know that as I repeat any affirmative statement it is changing my unconscious and conscious mind.  I know every negative condition from the past is gone.  I refuse to see it or to think about it.  I think of the joy and successful moments in my life instead.  Yesterday is gone and today is the beginning of a bright and exciting future.  Today is God's day and I simply allow God to move and have its way as my life.  Today I am feeling the vibration of bright hope and promise and I attract infinite possibilities to me.  It is mine and I accept it now.  I am alive, awake and aware that Spirit is my source and I am grateful for this truth.  I see evidence of the grace of God in my life.  I am so blessed.  I release my word into the Law. It is done.  And so it is.  Amen.  - Rev. Maryum Morse
