COLOR

Let us not forget that there is inherent necessity for warmth and color. The Universe is more than an inexorable Law of Cause and Effect. Personality cannot emerge from a principle which does not contain the inherent possibility of personality. --Ernest Holmes

Color brings so much pleasure to my life. Color is beauty; I love it. My favorites are purple, fuchsia, Magenta, turquoise, black. But this would not be possible without all of the colors of the rainbow. It’s the different combinations of colors, rather than one single color at a time that gives us so much beauty. They all work together.

CLEAR

God is All. There is but One Power, Intelligence and Consciousness in the Universe, but One Presence.

This is a good way to clear your consciousness. We can readily see what it does: it induces a clear concept of Reality, which must reproduce Itself. This process of clear thinking, if carried out every day, will heal.—Ernest Holmes

Life is a journey on a path. While walking on this path, if there are obstacles, I must clear the way. If I understand this each step is easier.

CLEAN

Not what we eat or drink, but what we think, defiles. The issues of life are from within. If a man is clean in his mind, then is he clean indeed. We must keep the mental house free from any thought which contradicts the truth of being. –Ernest Holmes

I feel good when I keep my mental house clean first and then and my physical house clean. I feel good when I take a bath and my hair is all shiny and smooth. I love it when my home is in order and all the dishes are washed clean and put away. There must be something to the saying, “cleanliness is next to Godliness!”

CLARITY

This inner thought content is the sole medium between the Absolute and the relative, between causes and conditions.

When this inner thought is clarified, that is, when it knows the truth, it will reinstate the outer man in peace, poise, health and happiness. –Ernest Holmes

When I think clearly, then I have clarity. When I have clarity, then I can move forward in a more authentic way, and achieve results that work for me and for the world.

CLARIFY

Infinite Spirit Complete Essence of Life is now my life. That which is animated by Perfect Spirit of Life must express or be like that which animates it. My thought now rests in contemplation of my real self and that clarified thought makes easy the way for the operation of the Life Essence through me. –Ernest Holmes

If there is something I do not understand, I ask to clarify it. I ask questions, I read, I seek to know the Truth.

CLAIM

When we are willing to lose a personal sense of responsibility; when we let go of the thought of isolation and claim a real unity with God, then we lose the personal and find the Universal. But remember, as the greater always includes the lesser so the Universal always includes the personal, which is a personification of Itself. –Ernest Holmes

I claim my good at this moment. I look for the positive in Life and I claim this point of view. I look for all of the beauty in myself and others. This makes me feel happy and I claim it as mine.

CIRCULATION

Back of what we call the human body, there must be a Divine Body. It is not necessary to visualize this spiritual body, but we should sense body as a spiritual idea, that the flow and circulation of life through it is complete. It is not inhibited…not congested. –Ernest Holmes

I give and I receive. What I give out I get back. When I get something, then I consciously give something back. This is the law of circulation.

CIRCLE

God is in us as we are in God—the same essence, the degree apparently different. The one finite and the other Infinite, and since the Infinite cannot come from the finite, it follows that the finite must come from the Infinite—a little circle within the big circle.

I love the circle because it symbolizes wholeness and oneness. A circle is a line that is unbroken. A hug is like a circle!

CHOICE

If we observe any scientific discovery, we shall see that this is the way it works. Some man’s mind discovers the law or principle, governing the science; this is the way of Love of personal volition, of choice—this is the spontaneous element in the universe. –Ernest Holmes

I always have choice. I can choose love or I can choose fear. I can choose to move forward or to be stuck in past beliefs. I make the choice for stepping out with love!

CHILD

Then spoke the child:

“I am come to bring peace.

I am the child of joy, and

To all who will, I give life.

I am formed of happiness.

I am come from the eternal stillness.

Quietness and confidence are mine.

In the heart of the Father I have lived forever.”

--Ernest Holmes

I am kind to my inner child. I take care of this precious child within me—I’m her mom. I do not allow her to be destructive. I encourage her to be creative, which is her nature!

CHERISH

1. To hold dear; treat with affection and tenderness. 2. To keep fondly in mind; entertain: cherish a memory. –American Heritage Dictionary

As I think of my family and friends and all of the experiences I have had in life, I take it all into my heart and I cherish it all. I imaging big loving arms around my life and everyone I have come into contact with just HUGGING everyone and everything, cherishing it forever.

CHEER

Thoughts of dishonesty and suspicion make the eyes shifty. Thoughts of fear, desolation, and hopelessness make the eyes lusterless. The eyes brighten with friendliness and good cheer, when animated by the light of love, joy, faith or noble purpose. –Ernest Holmes

When I sing a little song to a loved one, it has a way of cheering them up.

CHARITY

“It is done unto you as you believe.” Thoughts of failure, limitation or poverty are negative and must be counted out of our lives for all time. God has given us a Power and we must use It. We can do more toward saving the world by proving this law than all that charity has ever given to it.

--Ernest Holmes

I mostly think of charity as helping those who are less fortunate than I am by donating money or other material goods. In my heart I can practice charity by thinking kind thoughts and with simple acts of kindness.

CHANGE

…any form which is not of the original harmony is subject to change. The Original Spirit is Harmony. It is Beauty and Truth and everything that goes with Ultimate Reality. The Universe is not divided against Itself. –Ernest Holmes

I accept change as a part of life. Nothing on earth ever stays the same. It’s all constantly changing forms. If times are really good, I may tend to not want anything to change—I want things to stay really good! But I can change my mind! I can allow events and people to flow right along. I can keep my good feeling by making the decision that loving me is more important than any outside occurrence.

CHANCE

We should…see that the world of multiplicity is deep-rooted in a Universe of Unity; that nothing happens by chance; that we live under a government of Law—from the vast planetary system to a garden of roses;…Through cosmic activities and in human destinies, we behold the vast objective panorama of invisible, but adequate, subjective causes. –Ernest Holmes

A chance and an opportunity are the same. Each moment is a chance to slow down and focus on the present. Each moment is a chance to begin again no matter what has happened in the past. Each moment is a chance to have the best possible life.

CERTAIN

Before we attempt to improve our conditions, before we proceed further on the subject of healing

It is necessary that we be certain in our own minds that thought is creative, as upon this basis our entire superstructure rests. –Ernest Holmes

I have faith in the power of the Universe and in the Power of my own thought. I know that Goddess is in charge of my life and that I am cared for. I do not always know exactly what will happen next but I am certain that all is well.

CENTER

SPIRIT IS ALL. –the Center and Circumference of everything that exists—both manifest and unmanifest. It has no enemies, no differences, no otherness, no apartness, no separation from itself. –Ernest Holmes

The more I center myself in Spirit, the better my life gets. If I get distracted with things that are negative or not important, I notice this, because I won’t be quite as happy, or I might feel tense in my body. I can then bring myself back to center by breathing and thinking loving thoughts.

CELEBRATE

To observe (a day or event) with ceremonies of respect, festivity, or rejoicing.

--The American Heritage dictionary

I love life, so I celebrate. I like to do creative things with color, paint, fabric, embellishments like buttons and beads, yarn and lots of different textures. I love my home and my family and my friends. I celebrate all of these things by getting fully involved and trusting the process to unfold naturally. I create value and I enjoy.

CAUSE

Thoughts are things, they have the power to objectify themselves; thought lays hold of Causation and forms real Substance… Thoughts of sickness can make a man sick, and thoughts of health can heal him. –Ernest Holmes

I am cause in my life rather than effect. I choose to take charge and to create what I want in a loving way that is for the good of me and others. I let go of any old beliefs that make me a “victim”; I let go and I allow myself to be CAUSE.

CARING

The root definition of cured is “cared for.” If we say that a disease is incurable, we are saying that it is not sensitive to care. As long as any cell is alive it is sensitive to care, which means that as long as a person is alive, the cells of the body respond to care.—Ernest Holmes

I care about my life. When I have the appearance of a problem, I sit back and take a breath. I let go of judgments about good, bad, right or wrong. I make a decision to respond with a caring attitude. I care about what happens; therefore I step forward in a positive manner.
