RESOLVE


Take the mentality away from a body and it becomes a corpse.  Having no conscious intelligence, it at once begins to disintegrate and to resolve into the Universal Substance or unformed matter, from which it came.—Ernest Holmes

I can resolve anything, any problem with love and forgiveness.

RENEWAL


Perfect trust in God within is the secret of relaxation, rest and renewal.  ---Ernest Holmes

It’s a great thing to take a vacation and go to the mountains or to the beach.  When you come home again you can experience a sense of renewal.

REMEDY


If the visible effect in our lives is not what it should be, if we are unhappy, sick and poverty stricken, we know the remedy.  The Truth is always the remedy, and the Truth is that the law of liberty is the only real law.  When we reverse the process of thought the effect will be reversed. 
--Ernest Holmes

There is always a remedy for anything that can seemingly go wrong, and that remedy is to love and bless each and every person or situation, knowing that all is well and unfolding perfectly at all times.

RELIANCE


One should never allow himself to think of, or talk about, limitation or poverty.  Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.  The more spiritual the thought, the higher its manifestation.  Spiritual thought means an absolute belief in and reliance upon, Truth.  This is both natural and normal.—Ernest Holmes

Obviously, I can’t do everything for myself and by myself; we are all here together and we help one another.  But I like the feeling of Self-Reliance when I have a moment when I know that I completely and unconditionally Love Myself with or without the approval of others.

RELIABLE


…when a psychic exercises the spirit prophecy, because he is getting his own subjective contact with the condition and simply interpreting what comes to him; but this is the logical, deductive, conclusive power of his subjective thought—seeing a thing completed by first seeing a tendency to set in motion and computing the time it will take to complete it. There are but few, however, who possess any reliable spirit of prophecy.  –Ernest Holmes

If I say I will do something, then I will do it.  I also am free to say “no, I will not do this.”  If I say I will do something and then the situation changes or I realize that the thing does not serve me then I bow out.  I allow myself to change my mind.  I am reliable to myself first and then to others.

RELEASE


It is necessary that we release all thoughts—as well as things—that clutter up our lives.  We are reminded that there is something resembling the divine in the intelligence and fearlessness of the organs of our body, in the way they take that which is necessary to their sustenance and well-being, and release that which is not needed. ---Ernest Holmes

I love the feeling of release when I finally let go of things that I thought were important.

RELAX


Hold steadfastly to the thought that all of life is in a state of eternal flow.  Relax your thought and allow the free flow of the Life Essence in and through you, and your body will respond it Its healing activity. ---Ernest Holmes

It feels so good to forget all of the burdens of life and relax into the Reality of Life.

RELATIONSHIP


All men seek some relationship to the Universal Mind, the Over-Soul or the Eternal Spirit, which we call God.  And Life reveals itself to whoever is receptive to it.  –Ernest Holmes

It is so important to connect with other people.  No One is alone.  Nothing ever happens without relationship.  We are all one.

RECOGNITION


The mechanical laws of nature are set and immutable, but the spontaneous recognition of these laws gives us the power to bring them into practical use in everyday life and experience.
--Ernest Holmes

Lately, I have been getting a lot of recognition for my artwork and this feels good.  It feels good because I have created my life to have this happen.  I have asked for what I wanted and I am worthy of receiving this recognition of my talent.

RECEPTIVE


All men seek some relationship to the Universal Mind, the Over-Soul or the Eternal Spirit, which we call God.  And Life reveals itself to whoever is receptive to it.  –Ernest Holmes

I am open and receptive to more and more prosperity abundance, love and joy!

RECEIVE


God is Intelligent Mind and Spirit, and there is a direct response from this Universal Intelligence to our intelligence.  If we ask for bread, we shall not receive a stone.  But we are told we must ask believing, if we are to receive.  –Ernest Holmes

I feel good when I allow myself to receive the wonderful Life Energy of the Universe.

REALIZATION


The realization that good is Universal, and that as much good as any individual is able to incorporate in his life is his to use, is what constitutes the Science of Mind and Spirit.
--Ernest Holmes

Sometimes, I notice how small and insignificant I am –when I am in touch with my body.  Today I was walking in the forest and I had a small realization of my larger Self.

REALITY


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.  –Ernest Holmes

Reality is simply what is.  Part of reality is what the circumstances appear to be, but the greater reality has to do with Principle.

RADIANCE


As the Christ awakens, the divine spark--shot from central fires of the Universal Flame—is able to warm other souls by the radiance of its own self-unfoldment.  –Ernest Holmes

When I focus on accepting my good life right here and right now, then there is radiance about me that I feel and that others notice.

QUESTION


Therefore, our belief sets the limit to our demonstration of a Principle which of Itself, is without limit.  It is ready to fill everything, because It is Infinite.  So, it is not a question of Its willingness, nor of Its ability.  It is entirely a question of our own receptivity.  –Ernest Holmes

I am at peace when I have no question.  I am already doing what I want to be doing and I already have what I want.  When I practice an attitude of Gratitude, I have no question.

PURPOSE


All nature waits on man’s recognition of and cooperation with her laws, and is always ready to obey his will; but man must use Nature’s forces in accordance with her laws, and in cooperation with her purpose—which is goodness, truth, and beauty—if he wishes to attain self-mastery. 
--Ernest Holmes

What is my real purpose in Life?  I have a gift for creating beautiful art quilts.  This is a wonderful tool of self-expression, sharing and healing and I am so greatful for this.  My purpose is to use this tool to overcome fear and to just BE!

PURE


Pure Spirit exists at the center of all form. Of itself, It is formless but It is ever giving birth to form.  The forms come and go but It goes on forever.  –Ernest Holmes

As I let go of anything I no longer need, I know that I get closer and closer to being pure of heart.

Monday, March 12, 2012

PROVIDE


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.  We cannot demonstrate beyond our ability to provide a mental equivalent of our desire. 
--Ernest Holmes

As long as I am alive and present here on earth, the Universe will provide for me.  As long as I am conscious and aware of the infinite possibilities and opportunities within each moment, I am provided for.

PROVE


As a matter of fact, we only know as much as we can prove by actual demonstration.  That which we cannot prove may, or may not, be true but that which we can prove certainly must be, and is, the truth.  –Ernest Holmes

If I get really quiet and listen to my heart, I get step by step guidance to live one day at a time, one hour at a time, and one moment at a time.  I create the art that is natural to me.  I have nothing to prove to anyone else because I am being the perfect me.

PROTECTION


The armor of God suggests protection to those who believe in and trust the law of Good.
--Ernest Holmes

I enjoy all the protection I will ever need when I stay living in the present moment.

PROSPERITY


If one wishes to demonstrate prosperity, he must first have a consciousness of prosperity…--Ernest Holmes

I plant the seeds. I allow them to bear fruit.  This is my prosperity.  I cultivate my garden. I appreciate each and every stage of my garden’s growth.  My garden grows and prospers.  I am a gardener of prosperity.

PROMISE


“Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  This is a promise we have all proven, in a degree.  Could we but comprehend the full significance of Spiritual Substance, we should be forever freed from all congestive thoughts—selfishness, greed, undue acquisitiveness—all of which have been called the waste products of the mind. Understanding this, it naturally follows we should be freed from their effects.  –Ernest Holmes

I promise myself to stay focused and to stay on track to reach my goals.

PROGRESS


The Infinite Mind, then, imparts Itself to the finite, through the act of incarnation.  The progress of the human race is a result of that process whereby Intelligence passes, by successive degrees of incarnation, through evolution, into the human mind.  –Ernest Holmes

I am always a work in progress.  My life is a continuous unfolding of creativity.

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

PRODUCTIVE


There is vitality in our communion with the Infinite, which is productive of the highest good.  As fire warms the body, as food strengthens us, as sunshine raises our spirits, so there is a subtle transfusion of some invisible force in such communion, weaving itself into the very warp and woof of our own mentalities.  –Ernest Holmes

I am having a productive day when I communicate and create.

PRINCIPLE


We are so used to the thought that if we mix certain colors we get certain other colors that we do not realize we are dealing with a principle.  We know that whoever blends these particular colors will get the same result but we do not know why; THE WISEST MAN LIVING DOES NOT KNOW WHY!

I let go of all appearances of the way I think things should be and I live by the principle that Life is unfolding perfectly, with Spirit in charge.

PRESENCE


…the medium is a Universal simultaneous Presence and in this Presence all live; and that whatever is known at one point in It is known at all points, instantly!

The presence of Life is everywhere. Anytime, any place, I can experience the presence because it is within me.

Saturday, March 3, 2012

PRECIOUS


The most precious thing a man possesses is his own individuality; indeed, this is the only thing he really has, or is.  For one instant to allow any outside influence to enter or control this individuality is a crime against his real self.  –Ernest Holmes

Each and every moment is precious, especially this one right now.

Friday, March 2, 2012

PRAYER

The answer to prayer is in the prayer.  But what is a prayer?  A prayer is a movement of thought, within the mind of the one praying, along a definite line of meditation; that is, for a specific purpose.  –Ernest Holmes

I use affirmative prayer, which means that I affirm my abundance by declaring that I already have it.

PRAISE


When faith touches a certain point in our consciousness, and the light of spiritual understanding dawns upon us, we glorify the good.  If we have been outwardly blind, our sight is restored.  We should praise our vision.  The clearness of spiritual vision should be reflected through our eyes.
--Ernest Holmes

I practice bringing my awareness back to what is good right now.  I look for the good things in Life and I praise them.
