RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for September 12, 2010 

                                          "Constantly affirm, feel, and believe that God multiplies your good exceedingly.  You will be enriched every moment of the day spiritually, mentally, intellectually, financially, and socially.  There is no end to the glory of man for his daily living.  Watch the wonders that will happen as you impress these truths on your subconscious mind.  You will experience a glorious future." - Joseph Murphy, Ph.D., D.D. "Think Yourself Rich" 

      Affirming our good silently or out loud using words that have meaning and feeling for us, has been demonstrated over and over again to be effective in drawing a greater good into the lives of countless numbers of people.  But, our mind must be prepared for our words just as the soil must be prepared for the seed that is planted to grow into an abundant harvest.  This week I am continuing with the 5-Steps of Prayer-Treatment; 1
) Recognition, 2) Unity/Identification, 3) Realization/Declaration, 4) Thanksgiving/Acceptance, 5) Release.  Last week I wrote about "Unity/Identification" and the week before, "Recognition" these messages are included on the 2010 Archive page.  This week, I will cover, "Realization/Declaration" ... the 3rd Step in the mental process of Prayer-Treatment.

     As we understand that our prayers are not to convince G-d of anything, but to convince ourselves ... it is best to ask ourselves these four questions before we begin to write or speak our "realization or declaration" statements:
           1) Do I really want this?
           2) Do I feel worthy and capable of having this?
           3) How do I feel when I believe I don't have it?
           4) How do I feel when I believe I have it?  

       These four questions can trigger in our mind a connection to our great capacity to have faith in our self and our inherent ability to realize more good in our lives.  If we take the time each day to write down what we want to experience, we will find that ideas come to us that guide us to realize these experiences.  By writing these things down we are impressing our subconscious mind that we are choosing to experience these things.  When we write or speak our treatments, we can include these ideas in our declaration statements and get the mental equivalent of experiencing them in our mind.  It is very important that we realize the power that is resident within our mind to accept ideas and expand upon them until they become part of who we are.  Once we have accepted whatever it is that we are choosing to experience in our mind, our thought atmosphere actually changes to reflect this greater consciousness of having.

     Dr. Frank Richelieu writes of this in his book, "The Art of Being Your Self": 
"When you claim your good, you forget your mistakes.  When you claim your good, you forget the injuries and hurts you have received.  You forget the disappointments you have experienced.  Why?  Because you cannot really claim your good in this new day and at the same time be overwhelmed with memories of the past.  You can't look in two different directions at the same time.  You carry over into this new day only those things that are going to be an asset to you in this new beginning."

     When we declare our good we feel better mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually ... for we are aligning ourselves, in mind, with the All-Good, G-d. 
The Master Mind Jesus stated: "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."  This "kingdom of God" is the good that we dwell on mentally ... and the "righteousness" ... that is, right thinking directed towards the good, draws all things to us and we can "declare" this as the truth for us every day.  Going back to the first of the four questions:  "Do I really want this?" ... we can ask our self if the thing that we desire will express a greater love of life through us ... not through the thing, but through us?  It is important that we have this realization, for the Spirit is always seeking to express more love through us and so the things that we desire to have, to be, or to do, must express a greater love from within us.  Are we ready to love more? ... to give more? ... if the answers to these two questions is "YES" ... then we are ready to receive more.

     Dr. Ernest Holmes wrote the following words for Prayer-Treatment Step #3, "Realization/Declaration": 
"This word I speak is for me, about me, is the truth of me. There is nothing in my mind, or the mind of another, that can deny it. Its action and fulfillment cannot be delayed, deferred, or hindered. I know, affirm, and declare that Divine Intelligence, the Mind of God, now guides and directs my every thought, my every action. I know what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. Every good idea I have carries with it the knowledge of the ways and means for its achievement. I am vigorous and whole. I possess the vitality of the Infinite. I am strong and well. God's Life is my life, now. His strength is my strength. His power is my power. My whole being is renewed, invigorated, made alive. There is peace, a Divine harmonious, dynamic, creative action at the center of my being. Every breath I draw, every beat of my heart, is the perfect rhythmic action of Life Itself. The expression of the One Perfect Life in me as me is now perfectly maintaining every atom, cell, and organ of my body. My body is a Divine idea in the Mind of God and no thing, no situation or condition can prevent Its full and complete expression in and as me. God created my body, knows how to maintain it, to remove what doesn't belong, and to rebuild it. This is occurring right now. Without reservation I know I now manifest and experience in all fullness and completeness God's perfect idea of me, and in all respects, every action, function, and structure of my body now conforms to it. There is perfect assimilation, circulation, and elimination. All that I am is one with the One Perfect Life. All the joy there is, all the happiness, all the beauty are now mine. I am born of the Spirit. I am in the Spirit. I am the Spirit made manifest."


Keep the faith!
