Are You in Denial? Or Are You Denying A Wrong Idea?

Share it Please
Sometimes a person is very clear about the truth of their spiritual nature. Other times, they may need a little help to get back to what they know is true, but seem to have lost track of. There are two methods of giving a Spiritual Mind Treatment (affirmative prayer) that can help restore a person. The first is a series of direct statements of spiritual truths. Making these statements in your prayer creates a sense of harmony and has the effect of reconnecting us to our spiritual truth.

When a person needs a little more help getting back to clarity, the second method of treatment can be used. In this method, we are reasoning our way back to clarity by refuting ideas that are incorrect.
In this week’s assigned reading, Dr. Ernest Holmes, the founder of our movement, writes that in this entire process, the one praying deals with nothing but their own thought. Their affirmations, denials, and realizations take place at the center of their own consciousness, and they never attempt to project them. In prayer, we make no attempt to concentrate or force. Rather, we try to get back to the spiritual truth of our being.

Warm regards,

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
