Words, Words, Words, Words!
"The Truth makes you free." Emma Curtis Hopkins
This whole New Thought philosophy is about WORDS.
I want you to try this experiment with me. Think of a concern you have.
First, look down at your naval… notice how you feel in your body. Breathe.
Now look straight ahead, not into the computer but perhaps off to one side, think of this same concern. Notice how you feel. Breathe.
I invite you to look up at about 45˚, think again of this concern. Even raise your arms into the air… breathe. Notice how you feel in your body.
Did you noticed any difference?
Emma Curtis Hopkins says, You are looking for freedom of some sort. The fact that you are searching for freedom is evidence that you do not know Truth. “The Truth makes you free.”
When we are downward gazing we are enmeshed in the world of affairs. We are located in our experiences, that which has already happened, and stuck in the reality of form, that which has already been created. This is a limitation.
But there is a Source of all creation and it isn’t in the world of form. It is beyond. It is much greater!! Look up! There is a field of possibility waiting for our recognition, waiting for our request, waiting for us to clear the way for Its arrival.
Science of Mind is a New Thought teaching. My teacher, Dr. Kenn Gordon said, “If we want a new experience we have to change and get a New Thought!” I didn’t realized the name of our philosophy was so literal. But it is!
Like attracts like. If you keep on thinking what you have always been thinking, you are going to keep on getting what you always have been getting.
WORDS are important!! Words are the evidence of our thinking.
When working with a practitioner we are asked what we want, so I ask you, “What do you want?” This is the first step to freedom. Knowing exactly what you want. Do you know what you want? Well if so, get out a pen and write it down!
Most people actually don’t have a clue. What ever happened to that clear minded child who knew, “That toy is mine. She took it from me!” So go back to that attitude and get clear and specific.
Once you are clear and specific, ask yourself why don’t you have it? What is the thought, or the word that expresses the thought, that is in the way of you having it now? Uncovering this word of error diminishes the power it has in your life. Awareness is the first step of change.
Next step is to ask questions like these only inserting your word of error; Is the Universe ever afraid? Is the Universe failing? Is the Source of all Life against me?
Now that you have your word of error, what is the TRUTH? Look up and tell the Universe, using your own words THE TRUTH! There is never fear in a Universe that is whole and complete everywhere. This One Life continues to expand, grow, and unfold daily in miracles. Life is for life, everywhere, and the connectivity of all is evidenced.
I am prepping for a new class series using the Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity by Edwene Gaines. Edwene says it is our job to ask. She claims the Universe can’t give us the “kingdom” if we don’t ask. We must get clear about what we want and form the right words to ask.
I thought I would do a search in the Science of Mind for “word” and found 447 matches. Like this one, “My Word is a Word of Power, for I know that it is the Word of the Great God within me. ”My Word shall accomplish and prosper, and shall do good unto all who call upon my name. ”My Word is a tower of strength and cannot be denied. ”It is complete and perfect here and now. “My word is the word of the One Life, All Good.”
We speak words. We have words in our head. Our life is modelled around all the words we use and don’t use. Words, words, words…
Many of us use affirmations to assist us in creating an experience. If our affirmations aren’t working it is because we have a word or error in the way.
I noticed as we search for our new property, I stop myself from getting excited. I use doubt and limiting ideas to block the joy of possibility.
I am afraid of disappointment. This is my word of error. There is no disappointment in a Universe of perfection that is Omnipotent. How could there be?
What is my want? I want a new beautiful nature property for our Centre. Give to me this perfect spot for us to land, expand, and do our great work. A home for our yurts, retreats, events, workshops, meetings and classes and so much more.
I LOOK UP and rehearse: The disappointment is a story in my mind. There is no mistake in the One Powerful Life. There is only the rich unfolding Life that warps and weaves its perfection everywhere. The perfect property awaits my arrival. I know it!
TREATMENT by Ernest Holmes
“I am a centre in the Divine Mind, a point of Conscious Life, Truth and action. My affairs are divinely guided and guarded into right action, into correct results. Everything I do, say or think, is stimulated by the Truth. There is power in this word that I speak, because it is of the Truth and it is the Truth. There is perfect and continuous right action in my life and my affairs. All belief in wrong action is dispelled and made negative. Right action alone has power and right action is power, and Power is the One... the Living Infinite Spirit. This Spirit animates everything that I do, say or think. Ideas come to me daily and these ideas are divine ideas. They direct me and sustain me without effort. I am continuously directed. I am compelled to do the right thing at the right time, to say the right word at the right time, to follow the right course at all times.”
For this I am grateful, and so it is…
