My husband I were gazing out at the landscape around our new home. From our bedroom, it is as if we live at the top of the world. We can see the different mountain ranges of Kaua`i. We sit amidst the tall trees and are snuggled among citrus trees that are abundant. We looked at each other, and both asked, almost at the same time, “How did we get here?”
Just a little over a month ago, we were told we had to leave our home of 4.5 years because it was selling. We were amidst a race consciousness on the Island that warned us that finding a home to rent or buy was next to impossible. “How did we get here?” It seemed like a miracle “Ta-Da!”
However, we knew deep down inside us the Truth of the matter. We got here through faith, trust and knowing. We got here because we KNEW that anything else was impossible. This was the only possibility, and that possibility was that we would have a beautiful home to live in and from which to do our work. We kept our minds straight through the use of Spiritual Mind Treatment.
Yes, there is a modality of healing that we use in the Science of Mind philosophy. It is called “Spiritual Mind Treatment.” I’ve even written a book about it: “This Thing Called Treatment.” It’s a powerful method of making contact with the Creative Force within ourselves. It is a way to direct our mind in the direction of our desire to live fully and happily.
Spiritual Mind Treatment is not magical, although it might seem magical. It is scientific and you can get results when you are practiced in it. It doesn’t mean that your life won’t be challenged. It doesn’t mean you won’t have a life without trouble. It is merely here to change your perspective and beliefs, and by doing so, change your experience of everything you encounter on this earth plane. It puts you in charge of your mind because you find your place within the ONE MIND that is the Center of everything.
There is no mystery to it, nor is there a secret in how to use it, although it might be the best kept secret. However, right now, I’m letting you know it is right here for you. Simple directions:
Find a quiet place. This is necessary in the beginning, but eventually, you’ll get to where you can bring yourself to Center anywhere. Take a few deep breaths until you feel Centered.
Step One – Recognize that there is only one Power. It is called by many things, but its REAL name is LOVE. Acknowledge that Love is all there is. It’s not hard to do this because it is the Truth. Love is all there is. We might call it God or Good or Buddha or Allah; but, it is Love. Sit with this until you feel it. The more you do, the easier it will become. It’s your True Nature, which brings me to:
Step Two – Identification. This is a matter of accepting yourself as that Love. There is no separation between you and the Energy of Love or Good or God. It breathes you and replenishes every cell in your body in every moment. It is your Spirit. It is your eternal self. You are Spirit beyond all matter. Accept this as your Truth so you can move on to:
Step Three – Realization. Now is the time to allow yourself to claim your life in whatever way you desire. You are abundant. You are joy. You are health. You are clarity and peace. Claim that you are living your life to the fullest in any way that is right for you. Divine right action is always in place in your life.
Step Four – The only way to demonstration or living the life of your dreams is through Gratitude. You are grateful because everything is already here present. You do not have to search for it. It’s here, so you can be grateful before you even see it. Gratitude releases your feelings into the Universe so that you are only drawing back that for which you are grateful.
Step Five – Yes, you now have to let go. The Universe of your being has ways and means of drawing everything to you; however, you have to let go. This takes faith and trust. Just let go and allow the good to flow. You’ll know what steps to take, but let the “how’s” go to the Universe.
Have fun experimenting with Spiritual Mind Treatment. I know it works because I’ve been using it for over 20 years. Again, it’s not magic, it’s scientific. It changes your brain and when your brain changes, your life changes.
It isn’t a easy-bake oven. It takes time to cultivate your mind and grow the life you want. It takes willingness to let go of old beliefs that stifle you and hold you back. However, with practice and repetition, you will succeed. When the change happens, it will seem like a miracle. That’s why I called this blog “Ta-Da!” It is a miracle in the sense that you’ve surrendered to something greater than your ego and worldly-centered thinking. You’ve let go and surrendered and allowed the True You to move through you and move your life in a definite direction. More to come…
