10 Spiritual Mind Treatment Examples

Following are 10 examples of Spiritual Mind Treatments / Affirmative Prayers developed from The Science of Mind.

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Health

I know that is only one eternal Force, one Mind that moves through all creation as powerful, loving, joyful energy. It is the wind that whistles through the trees, it is the stream that caresses rocks as it flows, it is all that my senses can fathom, and so much more. Without this powerful creative Force, I could not be writing this or reading this now.

Because this Oneness is everywhere present, I am one with That. I am one with the infinite web of life and am connected with it All. I know that my body is an aspect and expression of the eternal One Mind, knowing Itself as my body.

Since my body is Spirit, God, expressing, it has all of the attributes, the eternal Essence of that Energetic Force. Therefore, my body swims in the ocean of oneness, the energetic force of Divine Love and manifests radiant health in every cell. I know that my body has powerful strength and stamina. Through its powerful immune system it overcomes anything other than Love. Harmonious energy moves through my body and fills every cell.

I am so thankful for living through this powerful, radiantly healthy, beautiful body and all that it provides for my life here on this plane of Reality. I am thankful knowing this truth and how it manifests as radiant health always. I release this powerful word into the Law of Manifestation, knowing that it is already done.

And so it is!

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Wealth & Prosperity

God Is! Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient. Infinite, Indivisible, Absolute. One Life, One Love, One Light. All that is, is God.

This One Life is What I Am! It is an immediate Presence, and Experience that flows in, as, through and around me. This Life is RICH!

At the center of my own consciousness, I recognize this Divine Presence inspiring, sustaining, and guiding me. The absolute clarity of my focus chooses from infinite opportunities and possibilities as I desire to express my financial abundance. The thoughts I think come from the Source Energy and can be realized in my reality. I choose that which is for my highest and best. I am a good steward of my money, demonstrating wise use of it. My life is filled with all that it needs, when I need it, for as long as I need it. I give freely of my gifts and talents, being of service to those who ask. I am opulently compensated for my gifts and talent. My good flows to me and through me with the current of wellbeing that comes from my core.

Right here and now, I allow and receive this abundance with grace and appreciation. My gratitude joyfully expresses within every cell.

With complete faith and trust in the Universal Law that always says “YES!” I release these words and know that they reflect Truth. Law always manifests Truth, and I open my heart and arms wide to receive in this now moment.

And so it is!

Spiritual Mind Treatment for General Well-Being

God, Spirit, One Divine Source, One Divine Force. It is all there was, is and yet to be.

Knowing God is all there is I know that I am made of this same Divine Energy. I am Spirit made manifest. All that I think, say, and do is Spirit.

Because we are one, I know that all of creation is made of this same divine, loving energy. Because I am Spirit and Spirit is love, I know I am love. Because I am Spirit and Spirit is abundance, I know I am abundant. Because I am Spirit and Spirit is perfect health, I know I am healthy, whole and complete. Because I am Spirit and Spirit is peace, I know my life is filled with peace. Because I am Spirit, and Spirit is beautiful, I know, sense and feel my inner beauty.

I give gratitude for this day, for the many blessings in my life, for those I see and for those I don’t. I give gratitude for remembering who I am and whose I am. So I release these words into the universe knowing I am truly blessed.

And so it is!

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Relationships

There is one Divine Presence in the Universe and I am aware of this Love flowing through me at all times. I live today with the knowledge that I create my life’s experiences from the thoughts I think and beliefs I have. Therefore, I guide these thoughts towards Love and Acceptance of life’s gifts and see opportunities for growth in every situation.

My relationships are fulfilling and loving. I give unconditionally to everyone I meet and form lasting friendships and harmony in my life. I love what I do every day and make sure I bless all of the happenings of the day. I see everything from a higher prospective and see only God in and through everything.

For this I am truly grateful and release these words into the Intelligence that permeates all. I feel at peace and have perfect relationships manifested in my life immediately.

And So It Is.

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Oneness

As I recognize the Divine Power and presence in the Universe as One. The Oneness of the Universe expresses through and as every fiber of every being as Love, Light, Joy, Peace and Oneness.

All beings are God knowing God in this moment and every moment. As I know the Oneness of the Universe expressing through and as every being, I know this Oneness through and as me and through and as each of us. The abundance of the universe is expressing itself here and now through all of us as infinite prosperity in all things.

All is Spirit expressing here and now through and as each of us as Peace, love and joy. All is Spirit now. I know as we experience peace in every area of our lives, that peace is expressing through and as every being and Mother Earth now. All is God and all is Peace for and as each of us. I know it is so.

In gratitude and thanksgiving, I lovingly release these words to the law knowing it is so and done Now.

And so it is.

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Awakening To Possibilities

Today as we awake to the possibilities which open before us, we realize that Spirit has been on the move all the time we slept. The Creative Intelligence has been making all things new as the night unfolded. Our bodies recreated in its image and likeness, our hearts beating to its rhythm, our minds renewed with its knowing. Not for one millisecond has Spirit stopped being the Source and activity that is all Life.

And so we claim our divine inheritance this day. We say YES to the renewing power that is moving in, as and by means of us right now. We say YES to greater love and deeper peace and higher knowing and fiercer spirituality and full vitality. We allow ourselves to be what Spirit has in mind and to express that boundless possibility every minute that we are on the move today.

We take it to the streets in gratitude, with open minds, loving hearts, fat wallets, beautiful bodies and joyful expression. In great gratitude we accept our ultimate destiny now. Life is GOOD, and so it reveals itself today.

And so it is.

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Awareness of the Allness of God

As I greet this day, I allow my awareness of the Allness of God to awaken every cell of my body. Each one tingles in response to my knowing that God … the One Mind, The Life … is equally present everywhere. I am one with and inseparable from all the Love, all the Divine Energy, all the Power, all the Joy, all the Compassion, all the Abundance, all the Wisdom, all the Intelligence … all the myriad other attributes of God. I immerse myself in the awareness that I am alive AS Spirit. I know it. I feel it. I know that it is true of me and true of each and every one of my beloved colleagues. I now speak my word from that place of absolute union … I speak on behalf of all of us. Wisdom-Wealth-Wellness and our Ultimate Destiny.

I now open to recognizing God’s Highest Divine Idea unfolding as my day today. I know that every thought, every word, every action aligns me more completely with that Ideal. My thoughts are clear, energized, energizing and orderly. My words impart my thoughts clearly, honestly, effectively and compassionately. My actions are simple, efficient and effective. I relax in the knowing that all that is to be done by me today is assured of completion. My accomplishments are achieved with ease and grace. I am joy-filled!

I am so indescribably grateful for this knowing that I live and move effortlessly again remembering I am alive as Spirit.

I release these words knowing that they have come to me from that One Source to which I now release them.

I know the Truth that I have spoken is already the Truth of my being that of each and everyone of my beloved colleagues.

And so it is!

Spiritual Mind Treatment for a Great Day

There is, in this infinite and wondrous moment in time, a Divine Idea of Light that enfolds me completely. I breathe into that lightness … into that life-ness … into that joy unfolding, and stand fulfilled, right where I am. I am one with all that is, as I look around and see only the good and very good. I look within and behold the beloved that I am, in all glory and purpose.

I contemplate my day in this serene and expectant attitude. In the know that every aspect of the grand and glorious life are seeking to support and fulfill into manifestation every aspect of clear intention of my life now.

It is with complete confidence that I move throughout my day, experiencing great joy, fulfillment and a sense of satisfaction. Every interaction and relationship adds to the deeper understanding of life and how I can be more available in my support of myself and others in every way. My interchanges are clear, direct and loving. My day is filled with shared laughter. I climb to new heights as I follow my heart’s desires. I am eternally grateful for the experiences I have and the people I meet. I delight in the celebrations I am part of, and help create.

I release these words into Law, accepting the abundant possibilities of this day to be a day of wonder, joy and fulfillment in all ways.

And so it is.

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Peace of Mind

Truth lives forevermore at the center of my being. I know that the faith that walked over the troubled waters of human experience two thousand years ago is at the very center of my own being.

I know that the inner calm that stilled the tempest is accessible to me today. I know that the Truth within me is always triumphant.

In gratitude and thanksgiving, I lovingly release these words to the law knowing it is so and done Now.

And so it is.

Spiritual Mind Treatment for Freedom from Worry

I refuse to worry about anything. I have complete confidence that the God who is always with me is able and willing to direct everything I do, to control my affairs, to lead me into the pathway of peace and happiness.

I free myself from every sense of condemnation, either against myself or others. I lose every sense of animosity. I now understand that there is a Principle and a Presence in every person gradually drawing them into the kingdom of good. I know that the kingdom of heaven is at hand, and I am resolved to enter into this kingdom, to possess it, and to let it possess me. Worry is a thing of the past, and I am free, peaceful, and at rest.

In calm trust, I let it be so.

And so it is.

Creative Ideas

Creative Ideas: A Spiritual Compass for Personal Expression by Ernest Holmes with Julia Cameron.

Creative Ideas is just as inspirational and insightful today as when it was first published over 30 years ago.

Those familiar with Ernest Holmes’ writings and The Science of Mind principles that he espoused will enjoy the long anticipated reunion with some of their favorite passages; those who are new to them will delight in the discovery of these classics of New Thought.

All readers will find Holmes’ meditations to be practical, insightful, and more than satisfying food for the hungry soul.

Buy Creative Ideas on amazon.

Julia Cameron writes in her Foreword:

It was more than 20 years ago composer Billy May handed me a copy of these pages. “They’ll change your life,” he said, a knowing twinkle. He was absolutely right. I felt the prayers stretch and unthink my mind the way a good long walk does when you finally get out of the house. I think that spiritually a lot of us live in the house of our own ideas, our limited thinking, and so much time indoors keeps us from enjoying the arched azure bowl of the sky – not to mention the grandeur and loftiness of our own true natures. Homes saw all of this.

The Artist’s Way Is Grounded On These Bedrock Principles

I’ve used these prayers write books compose music. Holmes makes The Great Creator accessible as a power within all of us. I have used these prayers for comfort at times of death and his courage in times of personal challenge – physical, financial, creative. I have found them a comfort in loss and an alchemist’s formula for making gold in the dross of disappointment. My book of creative recovery The Artist’s Way is grounded on these bedrock principles. For me, Holmes is the modest master, the spiritual magician who transforms trouble into that magical creature, Opportunity. Holmes’ optimism, like the Sacred Unicorn, is rare and real and exquisite.

“Creative Ideas hands us the keys to the kingdom. We are wealthy and beautiful beyond our dreams. This tiny book of prayers will open your heart to its natural generosity toward life. We are each far more than we imagine, and becoming that “more” is what these small prayers will bring about.”

Matthew Fox, PhD writes:

“These prayers ennoble the soul and enable one’s work in the world as well, drawing as they do on deep sources of Scriptural wisdom and the quiet insight of a great heart, that of Ernest Holmes. They awaken us and empower us to put joy before sorrow and affirmation ahead of negativity and truth before denial. Great medicine for our times!”

According to Jean Houston, PhD:

“Ernest Holmes was one of the first to direct us to what is to be found in the vast ecology of inner space . . . He shows us how to be active and creative citizens in a Universe and Innerverse richer than all previous imaginings.”

Ernest Shurtleff Holmes

Ernest Shurtleff Holmes was one of the foremost spiritual teachers of the 20th center. Holmes blended the best of Eastern and Western spiritual philosophies, psychology, and science into the transformational ideas known as the The Science of Mind.

Ernest Holmes

Dr. Ernest Holmes was a mystic who found God in the silence. Going within and experiencing God in the deepest part of himself was his spiritual practice.

His spirituality was reflected in his living; he believed he was one with God, and he experienced that oneness in all that he did.

As important as the mystical experience was to Dr. Holmes, he also believed that religion had to be applied to everyday life problems, as an integral part of the walk of faith. Wholeness involved the Presence, yes, but also the Power — the two faces of the dual nature of God.

Dr. Holmes developed the The Science of Mind philosophy to reflect his twin beliefs that the inner experience of God gave entry to the Power of God and that changing the way we think about our conditions causes the Power of the Universe to change those conditions to make our lives better.

Science of Mind identifies the spiritual principles that apply equally to everyone in every situation, and it teaches us how to use them for our advantage.

Spiritual Mind Treatment

He formulated a specific type of prayer, known as Spiritual Mind Treatment, that has positively changed the lives of millions.

Religious Science Movement

Ernest Shurtleff Holmes the founder of the Religious Science movement and the Church of Religious Science.

Inspiring Books

Basing his techniques for living a free and full life on sacred wisdom—from the ancient to the modern—Ernest Holmes outlines these ideas in a collection of inspiring books. Written with simplicity and clarity, these books provide the means for every reader to live a more satisfying life.
