Affirmative Prayer, Spiritual Mind Treatment, from The Science of Mind is not about convincing God to do something for us. It is becoming aware of the God presence within us.
During the process of Affirmative Prayer we come to the realization that within the universe there is one Infinite, Universal Presence that permeates everything, and therefore this Presence, being everywhere, has to be right within us, as well.
With this attitude of mind we reach an acceptance of new possibilities in life, we are able to ‘see’, ‘feel’ and speak of the good we desire as already ours. Then we let the universe work its magic.
The 5 Steps of Affirmative Prayer / Spiritual Mind Treatment
The Science of Mind provides us with 5 steps to use when using Affirmative Prayer / Spiritual Mind Treatment.
- RECOGNITION (God Is)
Recognize God as the ultimate, limitless Presence and Power in the universe. God is all there is.
- UNIFICATION (I AM)
After recognizing God as the ultimate Presence and Power in and through everything, you now accept that you and God are one. You know God acts through you, as you, in you, and in all life. I am one with God, now.
- DECLARATION / REALIZATION (I Accept; I Affirm)
Already knowing that you are part of God, you realize without doubt or reservation that the good you desire to experience is now taking form through God’s Power. I know my desire is complete and I accept.
- THANKSGIVING / ACCEPTANCE (I Give Thanks)
Having clearly stated and affirmed what you want to experience, you thankfully accept that the good you desire is yours right now. I accept and give thanks for this good right here and now.
- RELEASE (I Let Go and Let God)
After thankfully accepting your good as already accomplished, you release your prayer to the activity of the Universal Law of Mind, completely freeing yourself of concern. I let go and let God. I release this truth in total belief that it is done.
At the end of every Spiritual Mind Treatment, we say the words “And so it is.”
These words let us release our treatment out of our hands with total conviction that we BELIEVE and KNOW that what we desire is already done through the Power of God.
