AFFLUENT



A person does not suddenly become affluent because she sits around and thinks,”I am a multi-millionaire.”  But when she thinks affluently she does begin to demonstrate prosperity. 
–Ernest Holmes

I accept that I am affluent. My very being is flowing with the energy of Life.  This affluent energy is flowing through me and out to everyone I come into contact with and then back to me.  I am connecting affluently with Spirit.  I am healthy, wealthy and wise.  I am affluent!

AFFIRMATION



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

Today, I affirm Life.  I affirm prosperity and abundance for all living creatures.  I say yes to my good, today.  My affirmation is that “All is Well”.  I am in agreement with nature; I go with the flow, and I say “Yes!”

ACCOMPLISH



The practice of Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us with the conscious knowledge that “The law of the Lord is perfect” (psalms 19:7) And we must believe this to be a fact.  IN SO FAR AS OUR THOUGHT IS IN ACCORD WITH THIS PERFECT LAW, IT WILL ACCOMPLISH AND NOTHING CAN HINDER IT.—Ernest Holmes

I love to accomplish things.  While I am working on my artwork or my marketing, I feel good when I can make little check marks next to the tasks that I accomplish on my list.  But when I look within myself and I cultivate patience or forgiveness, then I am accomplishing something very precious indeed.

ACCEPTANCE



If one were to make a complete mental picture of himself as he would like to be, filling in all the details of his desires and trying to accept the whole thing as a present reality he would soon demonstrate that the control of affairs is from within out and not from without; the cause being that whatever exists as a mental picture in Mind must tend to and finally does take form if the Picture is really believed in and embodied.

At this moment, I accept myself just the way I am.  I love and accept myself even if I am afraid at times.  I accept all of the abundance and vitality that is mine today.  I am affluent in Life.  I am full of intelligence, wisdom and Love.  I have all the money I need.  I am surrounded by loving people because I attract the love that I am.  I accept my big, beautiful Life as is.

ABUNDANCE



Thoughts of lack manifest as limitation.  Thoughts of abundance manifest as success and happiness.  Failure and success are but two ends of one stick.—Ernest Holmes

The universe is always abundant.  There is always enough of everything for everyone.  The abundance of the Universe is available to me at all times, as I am able to accept it.  When I allow my good to flow into my life, then I have abundance.  Whatever I give out, I get back!

ABSOLUTE

 

Such is the power of right thinking that it cancels and erases everything unlike itself.  It answers every question, solves all problems, is the solution to every difficulty.  It is like the Sunlight of Eternal Truth bursting through the clouds of obscurity and bathing all life in a celestial glory.  It is the Absolute with which we are dealing and nothing less.—Ernest Holmes

Absolute is for sure; it’s something I can depend on; there is no doubt about it.  Life on earth is full of variety and uncertainty; sometimes turmoil and violence, as well as beauty and loveliness.  But, if I practice nonjudgement, I can tap into the absolute power of Spirit.  I can choose the energy which goes beyond appearances to the peace of the Absolute.

ABILITY



We cannot demonstrate beyond our ability to mentally embody an idea.  The argument is between our experience, what the world believes, and what we are convinced is the Truth.
–Ernest Holmes

I have ability.  I am able.  Just by my being alive, I have the ability to breathe.  I could make a very long list of the things I have the ability to do just because I am alive; things like seeing, hearing, walking and talking.  On TV I saw a young woman who had MS and could not move her body much at all.  She attended university classes, wrote wonderful poetry and earned a 4.0 grade point average.  This inspiring person has the ability to not only overcome but to find a place deep within her that can see beyond appearances to her true self.

YES!



Subjectivity is entirely receptive…It can take our thoughts only the way we think them…If I say, “I am unhappy”…the subconscious mind says, “Yes, you are unhappy.”  --Ernest Holmes

More and more often I allow myself to move forward rather than back.  I say “yes” to myself and I give myself permission to live life more fully and in a bigger way.  I say “yes” to Life Itself.

WORTHINESS



…we must not have fear for the future…”I see that the future is bright with promise.  It beckons me forward into a more complete realization of my own worth and my rightful place in the Universe.”  --Ernest Holmes

I am worthy because I love myself.  I am kind to myself and I allow myself to accept and to have good people and good things in my life.  I allow myself to accept the peace of the Universe.  I am worthy of God’s Love, because I allow the Light of the Universe to flow through me and express as me.  I surrender to worthiness.

WORTH



I see that the future is bright with promise.  It beckons me forward into a more complete realization of my own worth and my rightful place in the Universe.  –Ernest Holmes

If my sense of worth is dependant on the situation I find myself in, then it is a false sense of worth.  My real worthiness is independent of circumstances.

WORK



A treatment is a spiritual entity in the mental world and is equipped with power and volition—as much power and volition as there is faith in it, given to it by the mind of the one using it—and operating through he Law, It knows exactly how to work and what methods to use and just how to use them.—Ernest Holmes

Work is so important to having a good life but play is equally essential to happiness.

WORD



Everything I do say or think is stimulated by the Truth.  There is power in this word that I speak, because it is of the Truth and it is the Truth. –Ernest Holmes

My word is my vehicle for expression and for creating what I want in life.

WONDERFUL



…some of the teachers of olden times used to instruct their pupils to cross their hands over their chests and say, “Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful me!”  –Ernest Holmes

Having a wonderful day is always a decision I make in each and every moment.

WISHES



We are surrounded by an Infinite Possibility.  It is goodness, Life, Law and Reason.  In expressing Itself through us, It becomes more fully conscious of Its own being.  Therefore, It wishes to express through us.  As It passes into our being, It automatically becomes the law of our lives.  –Ernest Holmes

My wishes are in my heart for everyone and everything to be seen as a blessing and for the world to be healed one step and one person at a time.

WISE



The Karmic Law is not Kismet.  It is not fate but cause and effect.  It is a taskmaster to the Universe; a servant to the wise.  –Ernest Holmes

I am wise to embrace my life just the way it is and just the way it is not.

WISDOM



Should all the wisdom of the Universe be poured over us, we should yet receive only that which we are ready to understand.  This is why some draw one type of knowledge and some another, and all from the same source—the Source of all knowledge.—Ernest Holmes

Wisdom is knowing when to move forward and when to wait.  Wisdom is knowing when to share and when to remain silent.  It is spending money in a balanced way and eating food in a balanced way.  It is making the right choices in life for the greatest and highest good of all concerned.

WILLINGNESS



The practice of the Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us, with the conscious knowledge that “The Law of the Lord is perfect.”—Ernest Holmes

There is an order in the Universe and I do not always know what that order looks like because it does not always match what I think it should look like.  So, with the idea of willingness, I allow myself to be open to a new way of thinking.  I allow myself to be guided and directed by a power greater than my own.  I allow myself to trust the Universe.  I am WILLING to move forward, even though I can only see a few steps in front of me.

WILL



We do not will things to be done; things are brought into being, not by will, but by the power of the self-assertive Truth.  –Ernest Holmes

The will of the Universe is my will. Knowing this is true, if I really listen to my heart, then I will choose to cooperate and follow my guidance.

WHOLENESS



…believing that there is an Infinite Law of the Spirit, or Law of Life, which tends to multiply our gifts, because in so doing It multiplies Its own experience, Its own pleasure, Its own fruition; we may assume that spiritual man is already a success, is already supplied with everything that he needs.  The potential of all things exists in the Universal Wholeness.—Ernest Holmes

Wholeness is when there is nothing missing.  Nothing can ever be missing from the Universe.  Where would it go?  If the Universe is all there is and infinite, then nothing can be missing and therefore the Universe is whole.  That is Wholeness!

WHOLE



If we are really One with the Whole, we must be One with the Law of the Whole, as well as One with the Spirit of the Whole. ---Ernest Holmes

At this moment, I am perfect, whole and complete. When it seems as if I have 100 projects unfinished and my life feels chaotic; I can go within and connect with my Spirit, which is whole right here and right now.

WELL



If the body is to be permanently well, the soul or subjective life must be in poise; the mind peaceful and happy.  –Ernest Holmes

No matter what my condition is; whether I might be experiencing a headache or flu, there is always that part of me that remains untouched, free and well.

WELCOME



Anything that obeys the One, conforms to the One, believes only in the One, and comes only through the consciousness of the One is perfectly welcome but ANYTHING OTHER THAN THAT CANNOT COME.—Ernest Holmes

I know that I am deeply loved and supported by the Universe.  I am always welcome to begin again in each new moment.

WATER



Our thought, in its externalization, will reach its own level, just as water reaches its own level by its own weight and without effort.  –Ernest Holmes

Water is so good to drink.  My body is over 90% water.  There is no life without water.  Water is clear so I like to equate it with clarity.  Clarity is so important to a good life too!

WARMTH



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…In each one of us, to each one of us, through each one of us, something is personalized…--Ernest Holmes

As I continue to create an atmosphere of success, love and creativity, the warmth of my heart grows and grows.

VOICE



We may stumble, but always there is that Eternal Voice, forever whispering within our ear, that thing which causes the eternal quest, that thing which forever sings and sings.—Ernest Holmes

Each time I speak, write, draw, make a quilt or exhibit my work, my voice is heard.

VITALITY



There is a 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

When I let my ego float away, that is when I feel vitality.  When I am doing what I love, that is when I feel vitally alive.  I feel wonderfully vital when I decide for love; when I am willing to set aside my judgments about situations or people and I go home to love.

VISUALIZE



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…--Ernest Holmes

As I visualize all of my needs met at all times, I know that this includes everyone and everything being a blessing to me and I am a blessing to the world!

Friday, October 4, 2013

VISION



As we bring ourselves to a greater vision, we induce a greater concept and therefore demonstrate more in our experience.  –Ernest Holmes

My big vision is peace on earth.  My own personal vision is to be at peace and to continue to create a loving atmosphere wherever I go and with whomever I meet.  My vision is for creativity and balance for all.

VIRTUE



Each man is rewarded not for virtue but through virtue.  –Ernest Holmes

I like to think of developing good habits as a virtue.  When I have habits and routines to follow every day, I feel good about myself. Productive habits are virtues to me.

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

VIEWPOINT



The will holds attention to the mental viewpoint until the creative power has time to work through the law of unfoldment.  –Ernest Holmes

Anytime I want to, I can change my viewpoint.  If I find myself thinking something negative, I acknowledge it, I drop it, and I move on to a more positive viewpoint.

VICTORY



The Spirit knows no past and is not affected by the belief in any way.  The past is swallowed up in the victory of a perfect present, which is filled with love and protection.  –Ernest Holmes

Today, I celebrate victory in each and every aspect of my life.  I release the old idea of “victim” and I replace it with victory.
