Spiritual Practices

Spiritual Mind Treatment, also known as Affirmative Prayer.
Science of Mind uses a five-step process.

Based on the understanding that one’s mind and beliefs creates one’s reality.
1. Recognition – know that God is all there is.
2. Unification – know that you are one as God.
3. Declaration – state your word for the circumstance you want to manifest.
4. Thanksgiving – give thanks for your word being acted upon by the Law of mind.
5. Release – “And so it is!”

In Spiritual Mind Treatments, we move into the consciousness of knowing, and
seeing ourselves as perfect. We are not subject to our old patterns of thought and
belief, but aware there is a divine pattern already existing within.

“Treatment in its proper content, is the time, process, and method necessary to the changing
and redirecting of our thought, clearing the thinking of negation, doubt, and fear,
causing us to perceive the ever presence of God.”
~ Ernest Holmes

In The Science of Mind, Ernest Holmes defines meditation as:
The recognition of the Father within, the certainty of our Oneness with the Whole, the immediate
availability of the Power and Wisdom resulting from this Oneness. Such communion with God brings
harmony into our lives and affairs, establishes the law of health and prosperity, and makes us a light
to all who cross our pathway.
Many methods of meditation exist, such as chanting, following the breath, using a mantra,
contemplation, listening to the silence. The results are: deeper inner peace, greater clarity, and more
profound connection to the unity of all life.

Involves going within, either alone or in a group, and listening for the highest outcome for any
activity, organization, project, or union. Visioning can include a guided meditation where the
facilitator asks questions such as, “What is the highest unfolding for [this project, organization, etc.]?”

“What do I need to release to bring this vision into manifestation?” “What do I need to embrace?”
Then participants can journal all that comes to them—words, images, ideas—during the meditation
and share the answers with others.
