I just listened to a short and emotional, beautiful rendition of what Spiritual Mind Treatment means to Rev. Dr. Petra of CSL Dallas. LINK
In this time of crisis, this is my go to place also. I have used this scientific method of prayer for over 20 years, and never have I needed it more than now. But what is it and why does it work? Dr. Petra expresses her deep emotional feelings about it and yet it is hard to grasp what she is talking about if you haven’t experienced this powerful process.
There is a definition that Dr. Ernest Holmes, who conceived and created this process, wrote, “Spiritual Mind Treatment is the art, the act, and the science of consciously inducing thought within the Universal Subjectivity for the purpose of demonstrating that we are surrounded by a Creative Medium which responds to us through the law of correspondence. In its more simple meaning, treatment is the time, process and method necessary to the changing of our thought. Treatment is clearing the thought of negation, of doubt and fear and causing it to perceive the ever-presence of God.”
This is a heady definition and appeals to the intellect, but still does not bridge the head to the heart. The only way to experience Spiritual Mind Treatment is to begin to use it. No matter who you are, where you are in your spiritual development, or what your religious belief, Spiritual Mind Treatment moves energy in the direction that you give it, as you fill it with your emotion and passion for that direction.
Everything comes from thought and thoughts are contagious. We live in one Mind, Universal Subjectivity, the Field, the Creative Medium. Every moment we are creating ripples of thought. The most powerful ones, the ones filled with the most emotion and feeling are the ones that are taking form. However, nothing is static and everything is always moving. It is fluid, it is energy. It takes form and than leaves the form it takes.
In Spiritual Mind Treatment, we recognize the Power and Presence of the Divine moving through us. We are so moved by this Presence that we can feel it as our very breath. From this place of oneness, then we begin to give direction to our thoughts that are immediately shifting and changing energy and recreating and neutralizing those things which we no longer want to experience. Spiritual Mind Treatment is the Law of Mind moving through us for Good with a specific purpose. It doesn’t outline the outcome, but it does embrace the feeling of the outcome. Just like Jesus spoke his word and the cripple man walked, so does Spiritual Mind Treatment release us from those things which bind us, and place us in a whole new world of freedom.
When we speak with conviction, definiteness and surrender to the innermost God, the Field/Law responds. As Dr. Joe Dispenza would say, “our intention sends the thought out; emotion brings the experience back.” This is Spiritual Mind Treatment; however, it is more than sending an intention out. It is an active, direct and powerful force that changes consciousness.
I cannot think of a better time than now in the middle of this COVID 19 crisis to use Spiritual Mind Treatment. It will greatly assist us to center, move out of fear and actually take an active role in changing our consciousness. As we change our consciousness, we cannot help but change the consciousness of an entire planet. “One alone in Consciousness (Spiritual Mind Treatment) with the Infinite constitutes a complete majority.”
