The simplest and shortest Spiritual Mind Treatment
- There is only One Power
- I am one with that Power
- I know it is
Let’s try again
- I RECOGNIZE there is only one Power (Mind, Field, Energy, God, you choose the word that resonate with you)
- I UNIFY myself with that Power, I am one with it
- I REALIZE that this is the only and absolute truth ( I realize that in the Mind I am Health, I am Abundant etc…what you want to treat for)
- I give THANKS for knowing that Truth
- I RELEASE these words into the Mind knowing their power and that it is already done, and so it is
What is Spiritual Mind Treatment
Historical context of Spiritual Mind treatment
Finally the long explanation
Dr. Ernest Holmes, who developed the technique called Spiritual Mind Treatment defines it as follows:
Treatment is the art, the act, and the science of consciously inducing thought within the Universal Subjectivity (which is in us as subconscious mind) for the purpose of demonstrating (answered prayer) and that we are surrounded by a Creative Medium which responds to us through a law of correspondence.
In its more simple meaning, treatment is the time, process and method necessary to changing our thought (both conscious and subconscious).
Treatment as an art form which develops a concept within the mind of those who use it, by establishing a belief through the inspiration of the indwelling Spirit of Life, that It desires to give us whatever we require, be it health, wealth, love or happiness.
The science of treatment is realizing there is a law involved, a principle of how Life as Mind works and unfolds, and that we understand the mechanics of this law. Thus, we can specialize it to bring forth the desired purpose for which the treatment (often called affirmative prayer) is being set into motion for that specific good.
Anyone, at any age or any faith can give an effective spiritual mind treatment. The law, which is impersonal as to who may choose to use it, will work for one and for all. The method of operation of this law in comprised of five easy steps. They are Recognition, Unification, Realization, Thanksgiving and Release.
The Recognition step allows the one praying to affirm that, above all, there is only One Life and that Life is God. This step celebrates all that God is â€“ the infinite, awe-inspiring nature of Life.
The Unification step allows the one praying to affirm their oneness with God. It is this awareness that all that is Godâ€™s nature is our nature and that the creative process of the Law is the creative process we may direct for our benefit.
The Realization step allows the one praying to release from their consciousness any limiting thoughts which are not in alignment with oneness with God, and to accept, claim and declare the new and empowering thoughts aligned with God’s nature that is impressed upon the Law.
The Thanksgiving step allows the one praying to fully accept and feel the fulfillment of receiving that which is given us by God. It acknowledges that prayer is answered by way of realizing that God gives us what we desire.
The Release step affirms the faith of the one praying that the Law acts upon the thoughts impressed upon it. The one praying can let go of any need to will or concentrate since they have changed the thought which is acted upon by Law which responds with mathematical certainty and reliability.
Treatment as affirmative prayer requires a degree of understanding of how and why prayer works. This is the key to demonstrating answered prayer and every person should employ its method of operation, for this is how it works and is waiting on all people to work it!
