EXPECTANCY

We should work, not with anxiety but with expectancy; not by coercion but with conviction; not through compulsion but in a state of conscious recognition and receptivity. –Ernest Holmes

I look forward to my next project and my next art piece with great expectancy. I look forward to my next day, my next hour, and my next minute with expectancy; because I know that something good is always happening for me and for everyone.

Expect the best!

EXPANSION

Behind the individual is the Universal, which has no limits. In this concept alone lies the possibility of eternal and endless expansion. –Ernest Holmes

The Universe is constantly expanding and so is my mind. The expansion of my thinking is what allows me to have creative ideas and to do things in new ways. I see the world in a different way in terms of solutions rather than problems. I have an expanded point of view.

EXPANDING

…since we cannot encompass Infinity, we shall always be expanding and always enlarging our capacity to know and to experience.—Ernest Holmes

My mind is constantly growing and expanding into greater awareness of Love, Peace, Harmony, Balance and Creativity. I am going with the flow!

I always do the best I can do, with the abilities I have at any given time. I do an excellent job of being Therese May. An excellent example of this is that, if I make a mistake, I immediately forgive myself. This is an excellent way of loving myself!

EVOLUTION

It has been written that the Truth shall make us free, provided we know the Truth, and we note that the evolution of man’s consciousness brings with it the acquisition of new powers and higher possibilities. –Ernest Holmes

My life is always evolving and moving. I am forever making the next choice or decision and doing the next task, making the next stroke on a drawing, assembling the next art quilt and exhibiting in the next exhibit; meeting the next collector and settling in to watch a favorite TV program with my sweetheart. My life is an organism involved with evolution, one day at a time.

EVERYTHING

Everything comes from Intelligence. There is nothing but Unity; there is nothing but freedom; there is nothing but completeness; there is nothing but totality.—Ernest Holmes

Everything means everything—that is all inclusive; including all that is. Everything—all inclusive is wholeness.

ETERNITY

Man must be created out of the stuff of Eternity, if he is to have real being.—Ernest Holmes

All is now; the past is now; the future is now. Whatever I am thinking, I am thinking it right at this moment. This present moment is forever. This present moment is eternity

ESTEEM

(noun) the condition of being honored (esteemed or respected or well regarded); “it is held in esteem”; “a man who has earned high regard” www.elook.org

ESSENCE

This Original Life is Infinite. It is good. It is filled with peace. It is of the essence of purity. It is the ultimate of intelligence. It is power. It is Law. It is Life. It is in us. In that inner sanctuary of our own nature, hidden perhaps from objective gaze, “nestles the seed, perfection.”

–Ernest Holmes

I listen to my heart and I realize that my essence is Spirit. I look around me and I see that I am surrounded with the expression of who I am-- my essence, spirit. I am grateful!

EQUALITY

We must know that the all-Powerful spirit is ever available and ever equal to the healing of any discordant condition of body, mind or affairs, but we must never look outside ourselves to find this spirit, since It is indwelling. –Ernest Holmes

We are all created in equality. In the past I sometimes compared myself to others when I was feeling that I was not good enough. Each person is individual and unique. I am perfect and complete in my own way. I love myself the way I am and I absolutely enjoy the unique life I have been given. I accept my good life in equality and peace.

EQUAL

Limitation is not in Principle nor in Law, but only in the individual us we make of Principle.

Our individual use of It can only equal our individual capacity to understand It, to embody It.

—Ernest Holmes

My artwork is different and unique from all the other art in the world as I am different and unique. Some may compare and say that one is better or worse than another. To really truly feel good about my work I need to stay clear of “better or worse”. I love my work. In the eyes of spirit all art is equal. Each artist is a gift to all.

ENTHUSIASM

ALWAYS EXPECT THE GOOD. Have enthusiasm and, above all, have a consciousness of love—a radiant feeling flowing through your consciousness at all times. Treat yourself until you have an inner sense of unity with all Good. ---Ernest Holmes

I express my enthusiasm by quietly accepting and receiving Goddess’s work into my heart. I am enthusiastic about life. I Love Life Today!

ENOUGH

(Adjective) enough to meet a purpose; “an adequate income”; “the food was adequate”; “a decent wage”; “enough food”; “food enough” -- www.elook.org

When I am feeling really healthy and happy and everything I already have is OK, and what I am doing is satisfying me, and I accept myself as I am; that is what “enough” is!

ENLIGHTENMENT

…the evolution of the individual—the unfoldment of personality, the enlightenment of the soul, the illumination of the spirit—can come only to the degree that the individual himself purposes to let Life operate through him. –Ernest Holmes

When I learn more about how to love myself and to love others at the same time, I progress to a larger state of enlightenment.

ENLIGHTENED

Divinity is in its expression through our humanity. Consequently, an enlightened soul understands the meaning of sympathy… --Ernest Holmes

The more I practice thinking positive thoughts and doing things that create healing and happiness for myself and others, the more relaxed and enlightened I become.

ENJOYMENT

There can be no real enjoyment of life until we see that everything is animated by Spirit, and as we see that things are thus animated we are beholding the real Universe.--Ernest Holmes

Because the energy of the Universe is flowing through me and healing every cell of my body, everything I think, say and do is giving me immense enjoyment!

ENERGY

There is a Universal Mind, Spirit, Intelligence that is the origin of everything; It is first Cause. It is God. This Universal Life and energy finds an outlet in and through all that is energized, and through everything that lives. –Ernest Holmes

The energy of the Universe is my energy right here and now. I am going with the flow and I am feeling free and easy.

EFFORTLESS

All manifestation of Life is from an invisible to a visible plane, through a silent effortless process of spiritual realization. –Ernest Holmes

I trust in my guidance and I follow its path, one step at a time. I let go of any resistance to the idea of moving forward and my life becomes more and more effortless as I accept the direction in which I am going.

EFFECTIVE

The divine Incarnation is inherent in our nature. We are immersed in an Infinite Knowingness. The question is, how much of this Reality are we going to express in our own lives? The direct approach is always the best and the most effective. –Ernest Holmes

When I set my intention to produce something, to finish a project, then I am being effective and making a difference. Today, I set my intention to do what is really right for me. I feel effective in this way. I keep my work organized so that I remember everything I need to do. I make a list and check off each task that I finish. In this way I am effective; but I trust the Universe to take care of the details which gives me peace of mind.

ECSTASY

Does the Urge which impels people to express, care whether a man kneels in ecstasy or lies drunk in the gutter? We are dealing with Law, and it follows that since we are dealing with Law It will bring back to us the result of the forces which we set in motion through it. –Ernest Holmes

In the 1960’s I read a book about Michelangelo called “The Agony and the Ecstasy.” This title reminds me that here on earth we perceive things by comparing. This world is full of opposites. The only way to really feel peace is to rise above the conflict and judgment and feel the Peace of Goddess. I can think of many times in my life when I felt so happy because I received some kind of big recognition or award. I was “the chosen one.” I felt ecstatic. I thought that some people really loved me. But, then when I was not the chosen one, I felt that I was unloved. For me to be in ecstasy, I must love myself unconditionally with or without the approval of others.

EARTH

…the combined intelligence of the race could not create the life of a plant yet the Intelligence in the creative soil of the earth will produce as many for us as we ask when we plant the seed of that which we wish to have created. –Ernest Holmes

I am a spiritual Being and at the same time I am an integral part of this Earth.

DYNAMIC

Physicians of highest repute are assiduously betaking themselves to a serious study of mental phenomena and mental processes. They are realizing the incredible possibilities of dominion resident in the dynamic forces of the mental realm. –Ernest Holmes

I listen to my guidance and respond by moving forward to create order and dynamic freedom.

DREAM

Freedom of will means the ability to do, say and think as one wishes; to express life as one personally desires, to be able to merely to think and dream of freedom would not be liberty.

--Ernest Holmes

My dream is true already; it is the present reality. My present reality is my healing reality and is my dream come true.

DOMINION

When we fear and resist the weather we chill, not from the winds and rain, but from our own coldness of heart. We should claim our dominion and power in spirit. Spirit is not subject to heat or cold. –Ernest Holmes

I take care of all of the wonderful things that I have—my home my healthy body; I care about and respect all of the great people in my life; I appreciate my creativity and my artwork. I have dominion over my life in this way. I am the boss of me!

DIVINITY

In mental healing, the spiritual practitioner should sense everyone as a Divine Being, thus causing an awakening of the Divinity which is latent in all people. –Ernest Holmes

Divinity is that which heals me of any of my pettiness, self pity, or thinking that I am someone special. In truth, I am Divine. I am the Light of the World. I am a Divine Being. My practice is to remember this and to tell myself that I am filled with Divine Love and Divine Light at all times. I am filled with Divinity and I am Divinity!
