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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

PRACTICE



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

I practice bringing my awareness back to the present moment.  My mind wants to think about what happened yesterday, or what I want to do tomorrow, but I practice centering in the NOW.
