Healing is a Revelation With Edward Viljoen


This month we are focusing on the idea that there is an inherent wholeness in creation, and that when we become aware of this wholeness, we experience a shift in our world. As students of New Thought, our assignment is to become clear in our thinking about this inherent perfection, using whatever process leads us to accept it with confidence.

Our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes, writes that the form we use to get clear in our thinking is not as important as feeling, accepting, and knowing this wholeness.
This month, then, we are practicing seeing the world, our bodies, and our affairs, through the filter of wholeness. It may not be easy, but it is worthwhile. To uncover the hidden perfection, we systematically remove obstructions of thought which deny the Holy Presence. 
What kind of thoughts are competing for your attention these days? Is your thinking helping you to become confident about the original goodness of Reality?

How to Start a Spiritual Chain Reaction


Dr. Ernest Holmes writes in Living the Science of Mind, on page 239, that no one lives entirely by themselves. We are all individual parts of humanity, and whether we realize it or not, we are influencing those around us. The awareness of this connection, rightly used, brings to mind the possibility of each of us being an agent of blessing for the other.

Dr. Holmes writes, “One of the most remarkable evidences of how this silent Spiritual Force works was exhibited in the life of the late Mahatma Gandhi as he sat quietly before perhaps a million people. In these great public meetings a combined atmosphere of confidence and faith was created which they called darshan, which means the united Spiritual Force of a great multitude of people. Vincent Sheehan, who wrote a book about Gandhi titled Lead Kindly Light, said that he had felt this spiritual realization so completely that it was as though he had bathed in some refreshing stream of life.”

Our enthusiasm for life is contagious. Our courage spills from our hearts and creates confidence in those around us. When we are all “prayed up” our sense of spiritual alignment reaches into the people around us with reassurance. Ought we not, then, be diligent about the kind of influence we are bringing to bear on life?

Your Spiritual Bank Account. Video with Edward Viljoen

Financial advisors often recommend that individuals and families develop the habit of contributing to a prudent cash reserve, so that when needed, withdrawals may be made for unexpected expenses. No one is required to make regular deposits to such an account, but it sure does make things easier if a person is able to do so!

Similarly, think of developing a spiritual account, so that when unexpected change or stress crops up in life, you have a prudent reserve of confidence, love, and trust to draw upon. Again, no one must do this, but it sure makes things easier.

Our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes, in Living the Science of Mind, says that we make deposits by first spending time with ourselves straightening out the little animosities that cause stress and deplete us. In so doing, we generate a consciousness of loving kindness, and create a reserve that we can draw upon for ourselves and others when needed.

Your Invisible Power - A Hidden Spiritual Resource

It has been said that humanity draws upon only a small percentage of its real spiritual capacity. Imagine that! Like an iceberg submerged beneath the surface of the ocean, your spiritual capacity lies hidden from view. Or think of your spiritual life as a tree, the roots of which are drawing upon an invisible source for nourishment and life. Our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes says that “our roots are in the Mind of God. Our individuality, everything that we are and do, is an effect of our invisible forces—forces which continually draw on the Infinite. But in our ignorance, we limit the flow of Divine Power into our lives.”

The way to use more of our invisible forces is to begin having a better opinion of ourselves, and a better self-talk habit. Nurturing an optimistic and affirmative inner dialogue is one of the quickest ways I know of to release more of what our spiritual force can achieve.

Dr. Holmes adds, as a gentle warning, “And there is one more thing we certainly should not forget to add: The higher forces of life always work constructively. When we use them constructively, there seems no limit to their possibility. But the moment we begin to use them destructively, they appear to block themselves.”

How are you using your mind to access and channel your invisible forces?

Best regards,

Dr. Edward Viljoen, the author of The Power of Meditation, speaks at The Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa
