APPRECIATION


The only news we have of Heaven has come through the consciousness of men, and to those few who have penetrated the veil of illusion and entered the realms of deeper reality, we owe a debt that cannot be paid in any other terms than those of appreciation and thanksgiving.

I appreciate myself. I am so happy to be alive. I appreciate my family and friends, the food I eat, the clothes I wear. I appreciate the work I do. When I practice appreciation, my life works and I feel good.

APPLICATION

We should be able to look at a wrong condition with the knowledge that we can change it. The realization that we have this ability must be gained by the application of our knowledge.

–Ernest Holmes

I have read hundreds of books and taken numerous classes and workshops about personal and spiritual growth over the years. Now, after all of the time gathering information and filling in the empty spaces of ignorance, I am learning to apply what I have learned. I have gone from having concepts in my head, to having love in my heart. The application of all of the information seems so simple when it all comes down to Love and Kindness.

ANSWER


Every problem is primarily mental, and the answer to all problems will be found in Spiritual Realization. –Ernest Holmes

Spirit always answers me. I ask a question, I listen, I hear the answer. It may not always be what I want to hear, but it will be what I need to hear. The answer is always for my greatest and highest good. I take comfort in knowing this.

ANIMATE

Man’s mind should swing from inspiration to action, from contemplation to accomplishment, from prayer to performance. This would be a well balanced existence, the spirit fires the soul with energy and understanding; the soul, which is the subjective mentality, vitalizes the body and animates all that we do.—Ernest Holmes

There are certain things in life that I am attracted to. Some people, some activities, are fun for me. I like to make art, draw, sew, make pictures with fabric, paint, and sew beads, buttons. I like other people who are into are quilts and fabric. My life is animated in this way. I come to life when I have the opportunity to practice creativity.

ANGEL

If we seek the Divine in men, we shall find it, and be entertaining angels unawares.

—Ernest Holmes

When I was a child I was taught that I had a guardian angel who watched over me and guided me along life’s journey. I was given a picture of a beautiful person with wings. Now that I am grown up and I look back on my life and I think of grandmothers, teachers, doctors, friends and family who have been there for me when I needed help and guidance. My art has been such a gift to me, too. I do truly have a guardian angel.

ALWAYS

These are the tools of thought with which a practitioner works. Where does he do his work? IN HIS OWN MIND. Never anywhere else. Always in his own thought. A practitioner never tries to get away from the mind within. --Ernest Holmes

Spirit always says “yes”. If I am thinking positive thoughts, then my life tends to go in a positive direction. If I am thinking negative thoughts, then my life will tend to go in a negative direction. I am responsible for whatever happens in my life, because Spirit always says “yes”!

ALONE

No (wo)man ever walks life’s road alone; there is ever Another who walks with (her) him; this is (her)his inner Self, the undying Reality, which (her) his personality but poorly emulates. Let us learn to be still and let the Truth speak through us; to be still and know that the inner light shines. –Ernest Holmes

I can’t ever really be alone because Spirit is always with me. But, since I do have a unique individual body by the name of Therese May, I can only have my own human experience. I can share this experience with others but there is always a part of it that is only mine. I choose to accept my individuality!

ALLOW

Now you are ready to prove your principle by allowing the Life to flow through the thing that you are working on or for. Do not will or try to compel things to happen Things happen by an immutable law and you do not need to energize the essence of being; It is already big with power. All you need do is to realize this fact, and then let it be done unto you or unto that for which you are working. L-E-T is a big word and an important one. By taking thought you do not add one cubit to Reality, but you do allow (let_ Reality to manifest in the thing you are doing. Ernest Holmes

My creative juices are within me and I allow them to flow. When I am drawing a design for a new quilt, I close my eyes and quiet my thoughts. I allow the images to come to the surface of my awareness and then I let my hand draw the shapes on the paper. As I open the doorway to the new work of art, I allow myself to be used by Spirit in forming the finished art quilt.

ALLIANCE

Most of us seek the cause in the effect and unknowingly put the cart before the horse, not realizing that the flower is already in the seed, and that effects must follow causes. There can be no true alliance apart, from life and no good apart from a unity with the whole. Ernest Holmes

I am a member of the Alliance for American Quits, where hundreds of quilters stories have been collected and can be read at click here. This alliance or coming together of powerful quilt members makes it possible for quilts, an important part of our heritage in this country to be preserved. When people join forces to attain a specific goal the resulting energy can be very healing.

ALL-EMBRACING


Unless there were a unifying Principle of life existing as One all-embracing Mind in which everyone lives and everything subsists, then we could not recognize each other. Indeed, we could not be conscious of living in the same world. This Mind in which we live is at all times independent of any individual action on our part. We are in It and It flows through us, but It is always more than we are.

I embrace myself; I embrace all of my life the way I am and the way it is, as is. I embrace and accept everything about me, positive and negative, all of my faults and all of the good stuff, too. I embrace the situations and circumstances of the world and all of the people in my life. Everything is Spirit and Spirit is All-Embracing.

ALIGNMENT


I love the intuitive writing of Sara Lewis!


Prayer is not an act of overcoming God’s reluctance; but should be an active acceptance of His highest willingness. Through prayer we recognize a spiritual law; that has always existed, and put ourselves in alignment with it. –Ernest Holmes

This day, I align myself, my Spirit with Universal Peace, Love, Intelligence, Beauty, Health and Joy. I feel great in every way, because I choose to agree with Spirit. I choose to accept that Spirit is working on my behalf and on the behalf of all people and all Life. I choose to let go of past negative patterns or anything that is no longer needed. I accept my alignment with spirit.

AGREEMENT















What is creativity?

The cosmic engine is started but man guides it in his own life. It goes for him in the direction in which it is driven. This driving is not by force but by agreement, unification and acquiescence. Ernest Holmes

There is an order to the Universe and Life is unfolding according to this order, just like a flower, opening into greater beauty. I make an agreement with myself and with the Universe to stay in agreement. I agree with Life!

AFFLUENT
















For Power Patch Patterns click here

A person does not suddenly become affluent because she sits around and thinks,”I am a multi-millionaire.” But when she thinks affluently she does begin to demonstrate prosperity.

–Ernest Holmes

I accept that I am affluent. My very being is flowing with the energy of Life. This affluent energy is flowing through me and out to everyone I come into contact with. I am connecting affluently with Spirit. I am healthy, wealthy and wise. I am affluent!

AFFIRMATION




















For tips on Painting and Embellishing on Fabric click here.

Practice is a definite statement in mind, a positive affirmation. It is an active, conscious, aggressive mental movement and in such degree as it embodies an idea—and there is no longer anything in our minds which denies the idea—it will take form because it now becomes a part of the law and order of the Universe in which we live. –Ernest Holmes

Today, I affirm Life. I affirm prosperity and abundance for all living creatures. I say yes to my good, today. My affirmation is that “All is Well”. I am in agreement with nature; I go with the flow, and I say “Yes!”

ACCOMPLISH


For a list of inspirational books click here

The practice of Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us with the conscious knowledge that “The law of the Lord is perfect” (psalms 19:7) And we must believe this to be a fact. IN SO FAR AS OUR THOUGHT IS IN ACCORD WITH THIS PERFECT LAW, IT WILL ACCOMPLISH AND NOTHING CAN HINDER IT.—Ernest Holmes

I love to accomplish things. While I am working on my artwork or my marketing, I feel good when I can make little check marks next to the tasks that I accomplish on my list. But when I look within myself and I cultivate patience or forgiveness, then I am accomplishing something very precious indeed.

ACCEPTANCE




















To read the inspirational story about how I started making Power Patches, click here

If one were to make a complete mental picture of himself as he would like to be, filling in all the details of his desires and trying to accept the whole thing as a present reality he would soon demonstrate that the control of affairs is from within out and not from without; the cause being that whatever exists as a mental picture in Mind must tend to and finally does take form ft the Picture is really believed in and embodied.

At this moment, I accept myself just the way I am. I love and accept myself even if I am afraid at times. I accept all of the abundance and vitality that is mine today. I am affluent in Life. I am full of intelligence, wisdom and Love. I have all the money I need. I am surrounded by loving people because I attract the love that I am. I accept my big, beautiful Life as is.

ABSOLUTE

I have always loved to draw and have found it to be very soothing. Most of my art quilts have begun with making an image with drawing. I also believe very strongly in practicing having a positive outlook on life!

Such is the power of right thinking that it cancels and erases everything unlike itself. It answers every question, solves all problems, is the solution to every difficulty. It is like the Sunlight of Eternal Truth bursting through the clouds of obscurity and bathing all life in a celestial glory. It is the Absolute with which we are dealing and nothing less.—Ernest Holmes

Absolute is for sure; it’s something I can depend on; there is no doubt about it. Life on earth is full of variety and uncertainty; sometimes turmoil and violence, as well as beauty and loveliness. But, if I practice nonjudgement, I can tap into the absolute power of Spirit. I can choose the energy which goes beyond appearances to the peace of the Absolute.

ABILITY
















We cannot demonstrate beyond our ability to mentally embody an idea. The argument is between our experience, what the world believes, and what we are convinced is the Truth.

–Ernest Holmes

I have ability. I am able. Just by my being alive, I have the ability to breathe. I could make a very long list of the things I have the ability to do just because I am alive; things like seeing, hearing, walking and talking. On TV I saw a young woman who had MS and could not move her body much at all. She attended university classes, wrote wonderful poetry and earned a 4.0 grade point average. This inspiring person has the ability to not only overcome but to find a place deep within her that can see beyond appearances to her true self.

ABUNDANCE


Thoughts of lack manifest as limitation. Thoughts of abundance manifest as success and happiness. Failure and success are but two ends of one stick.—Ernest Holmes

The universe is always abundant. There is always enough of everything for everyone. The abundance of the Universe is available to me at all times, as I am able to accept it. When I allow my good to flow into my life, then I have abundance. Whatever I give out, I get back!

OPPORTUNITY






My opportunities are unlimited. There is a Divine urge to express….I have only to open the portals of my soul and accept that which is ready to express through me. Today I fling these portals wide; today I am the instrument through which life flows. Ernest Holmes

This day, I have the opportunity I need. In this present moment, I center myself in Divine Love. I release the patterns of the past. I look into my heart space and I listen. My opportunity is right in front of me. I already have it. As I go forward, I take action. I let go of resistance and I seize the day!

embellished panel















This is an 8.5x11 embellished panel I made so that I could scan it into my computer and then print the image on fabric, which I then used in one of my quilts. It was fun and I got to use old earrings and lots of paint, buttons and polymer clay.
