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 use 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.

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!

DIVINE



The divine Plan is one of Freedom; bondage is not god-ordained.  Freedom is the birthright of every living soul.  –Ernest Holmes

To be creative is to be Divine.  I accept my creativity and my Divinity as my source.

DIVERSITY



Multiculturalism, the ideology of including people of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds.

I see a beautiful pattern with contrast, light and shadow; a complete variety of colors of the spectrum.  There are shapes and sizes of shapes and different shapes and colors of shapes with shading.  There are points of view—good and bad, puzzle parts making up a complete picture, patches of a quilt, parts of a body, musical notes, up and down, songs with many feelings, happy, sad, in between, cultures, languages, animals, plants, people, insects minerals, earth, air, fire, water, mountains, valleys, intelligence, personality characteristics, all taking shape, four seasons.

DISCOVERY



Man never creates; he discovers and uses.  Through this method all sciences are evolved.  We live in a Universe of Law, through which runs a spirit of self-knowing Intelligence.  “All’s Love, yet all is Law,” mused Robert Browning.—Ernest Holmes

There are many things I do not know.  I know this, so when I learn something new, I feel a sense of accomplishment.  I have discovered something.  If I set my intention to learn something new every day, then I give myself the gift of discovery every day!  What a wonderful way to live.

DISCOVER



There can be no reason given as to why the Truth is true.  We do not create laws and principles, but discover and make use of them.  –Ernest Holmes

I am discovering new aspects of myself every day.  I am seeing that I am always moving forward with new ideas.  I see that “This is It” over and over again.  I see that there are lots of new ideas and that there is always “the way it is right now”.  I have a combination of stillness and movement.

DISCERNMENT



Through spiritual discernment, we see that we have within us a power which is greater than anything we shall ever contact; a power that can overcome every obstacle in our experience and set us safe, satisfied, and at peace, healed and prosperous in a new light and a new life.  “If God be for us who can be against us?”—Ernest Holmes

As I focus on my work and what needs to be done by me, I act with discernment.  I choose carefully and I stay on course.

DILIGENCE



Solomon is accredited with many words of wisdom, none of which are more appropriate just here than his admonition: “Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life”.
(4:23)—Ernest Holmes

I pay attention to what needs to happen for me to get the job done.  On a daily basis, I stay focused on the projects I am working on with certain specific goals in mind.  I work with diligence, steadily and one step at a time my creative work progresses in the direction it is going and is completed in the time allotted.

DETERMINATION



A steadfast determination to attain some purpose, the letting go of all that opposes it, a complete reliance upon the Law of good, and an unqualified trust in Spirit—this is true fasting and real prayer.—Ernest Holmes

Success takes determination, creativity, faith and persistence.

DESTINY



Whatever we think, act, believe in, feel, visualize, vision, image read and talk about—in fact all processes which affect or impress us at all—are going into the subjective state of our thought, which is our individualized use of Universal Mind.  Whatever goes into the subjective state of our thought tends to return again as some condition.  So we and we alone control our destiny.
--Ernest Holmes

My destiny is Freedom, Love, total Abundance, Peace, Harmony, and Balance.

DESIRE



The word that we speak is the law of our lives, and nothing hinders its operation but ourselves.  We may use this creative word for whatever purpose we desire, and this word becomes the law unto the thing for which it was spoken.  –Ernest Holmes

I desire all good for myself and others.  I release anything that no longer serves me.  My only real desire is for wellness and healing at this moment.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

DEMONSTRATE

How much can one demonstrate?  Just what one can believe.  How much can we see, how much can we accept, how much can we find in our consciousness that is no longer repudiated by our denials?  Whatever that is, THAT MUCH WE CAN HAVE. Ernest Holmes

I demonstrate my art quilt techniques so that people can see how I do my work and if they are artists, then can be inspired to apply the ideas to what they do in their art.

DELIVER



Man will deliver himself from sickness and trouble in exact proportion to his discovery of himself and his true relationship to the whole. –Ernest Holmes

When I am working on a commission art quilt for someone and together we agree on a date of completion; and delivery, then I know what I need to do to deliver the completed beautiful work of art on time.

Sunday, November 25, 2012

DECLARE



Anyone can heal who believes that he can and who will take the time to set that belief in motion through the Law.  To daily see the perfect man, and to daily declare for his objective appearance, is correct mental practice and will heal.  –Ernest Holmes

I declare my prosperity and abundance right here and right now.  I am prosperous because I declare that I am prosperous.

DECISIVENESS



The all-powerful Mind of the Indwelling Christ in me dissolves and dissipates from my mind all belief in indecision, anxiety, depression and discouragement, for I dwell in the realm of peace. 
--Ernest Holmes

In order to move on, I consider each item and I say, “yes” or I say, “no”.  I let go of the items that are not essential and I focus on what is important.  I am decisive and my business is efficient.

Friday, November 23, 2012

DECIDE



If we have the mental equivalent of a commodious home, roomy, light, cheery, and an income in keeping with it; if we are able to build in mind the kind of home we wish, and there is nothing in our subjective thought which denies this, then we shall be able to decide and demonstrate for ourself the kind of home we desire.

I decide to love myself and I decide to trust the Universe is taking care of my needs. I decide to let go of anything that no longer serves me and I decide to allow myself to receive love.

DAWN

The Christ triumphs over death and the grave breaking through the tomb of human limitation into the dawn of eternal expansion.  –Ernest Holmes

Dawn is the beginning of the day.  The sun is coming up and warming our part of the planet.  When a new idea dawns on me, that idea is a beginning.  Each moment of my life is a new beginning, a new dawn.  In each moment, each dawn, I can release the old and begin again, fresh.

CREATIVITY



Behind the individual is the Universal, which has no limits.  In this concept alone lies the possibility of eternal and endless expansion.  Everyone is Universal on the subjective side of life, and individual only at the point of conscious perception.  The riddle is solved, and we all use the creative power of the Universal Mind every time we use our own mind.

Something within me has ideas.  Something within me finds solutions.  Something within me answers a need.  Something within me knows what to do next.  I can also use my creativity destructively.  Today, I choose to use the powerful tool of creativity in a positive, constructive way.  Making artwork is a beautiful way to use it.

CREATIVE



Within us, then, there is a creative field, which we call the subjective mind; around us there is a creative field which we call Subjective.  One is universal and the other is individual. But in reality, they are one.  There is one mental Law in the Universe, and where we use it, it becomes our law because we have individualized it.—Ernest Holmes

I am creative by nature.  The trick to being creative is to put the creativity to good use.

CREAGEOUS



God’s Creative Power of Mind is right here.  We have as much of this power as we believe in and embody.  –Ernest Holmes

I have the courage to express and share my creativity.  I listen to my inner voice and I proceed to move forward, one moment at a time doing whatever Spirit moves me to do or say.  I write down all of my ideas.  I prioritize them and I express them one at a time in the precious present moment.  I tap into my Spiritual Creativity and I spontaneously express the work that is mine to do.  I am Creageous!
