The central practice for active spiritual living is affirmative prayer or what we call Spiritual Mind Treatment. Affirmative prayer is like giving a treatment to your consciousness – you can think of it as a spa treatment if you consciousness needs to be awakened or up-lifted. You can think of it like taking a pill or medical treatment (which is why it’s called Spiritual Mind Treatment) in that you heal a wounded or false belief and restore yourself to your natural wholeness. This form of prayer is designed to build spiritual awareness and create belief. Spiritual Mind Treatment is our directive practice in which we understand and use the Creative Process and the Universal Law and Principles to co-create our lives with the Divine Oneness.
A spiritual mind treatment is an active process whereby you remember the truth about the Divine Reality, some specific quality of the Universal Life Force and Presence, and you step by step show yourself how and why you can believe that this Divine Reality is in fact the truth about any situation, experience or person upon which you focus your awareness and intention. Spiritual Mind Treatment is the art and science of using the Universal Law, the Creative Process, to consciously co-create your reality. This type of affirmative prayer is a formula through which you build an ironclad case in your own mind about why you can know that what you believe to be true actually is true. This induces immediate belief, plants the seed of the idea deep into your subjective (subconscious) mind where the Law is operating to create your world of experience and affairs.
This form of prayer doesn’t try to do anything to God, doesn’t beg, plead, bargain or ask for anything. Spiritual mind treatment is based on the understanding that the Universe is already providing us with everything we could every need or want. The potential and cause for all our good is already always available in Spirit. All we have to do is re-align ourselves with that Divine Presence in and as us. In doing so we immediately reveal the Truth of Being in consciousness, setting a powerful new Cause in motion, and the Law of Cause and Effect, must now create the corresponding effect in physical reality.
Next blog I’ll go over the 5 steps of this formula – called the 5 steps of Spiritual Mind Treatment.
