These economic times are stirring great anxiety among many; and at Enrichment.com, we wish to share the thought that it is more important now than ever to remember that the Universe is infinitely abundant, which it surely is, and that as individuals we can connect in mindset and consciousness with this Infinite Spirit of Abundance. Science of Mind teaches that out-loud "treatments" - statements of affirmation as to what one hopes for as that which is already real - leads to a connection with the Allgiving Source - and combined with creative action, results in manifestation from the higher plane of consciousness to this material plane.
The late Dr. Holmes, the founder of Science of Mind, would counsel us not to give in to fear, for fear closes opportunities for prosperity - but rather through intention to stay positive, optimistic and open to receiving the blessings of abundance. Another great New Thought teacher, Elizabeth Scovel Shinn, offered one of many treatments in this area, such as, "I draw upon the abundance of the Spheres my immediate and endless supply." It is important to follow treatment with action, and to be open to new vocational and entrepreneurial possibilities, if needs be.
The following "Treatment for Supply" by Dr. Ernest Holmes, is our offering to you at this time. You can practice this treatment on a daily basis, or construct your own. It is important to believe that what you are saying is real and true. Treat every day, for days, weeks and months if necessary. Let your consciousness become at-one with the Infinite Source and Spirit of Abundance. Treat not only for yourself, but include your well-wishes for everyone, for ultimately we are all indivualized expressions of the same One Spirit. We are all connected. Dr. Holmes' book, "Science of Mind" is available in Enrichment Recommends through Amazon.com. Elizabeth Scovel Shinn's book, "The Writings of Elizabeth Scovel Shinn" is also offered there; as is a new book, "Soul Currency: Inner Wealth for Fulfillment and Abundance" by Ernest Chu. You will also find a free download of Wallace Wattles' book, "The Science of Getting Rich" on the lower right hand column of the Enrichment home page. - Editor
TREATMENT FOR SUPPLY
by Dr. Ernest Holmes
A treatment after this manner should prove the law of abundance in the life of those who use such statements, and believe in them:
"I am surrounded by pure Spirit, by God, the Living Spirit. My thought is God thought, and it is the law unto that thing where unto it is spoken. Everything that I do shall be a success. I am led, guided and inspired by the Living Spirit of Love and of right action. I am compelled to move in the right direction and to always know what to do, where, and how to do it.
"I am surrounded by right action. I am filled with the consciousness of right action. Right action is success in all that I undertake to do. I am successful in all my undertakings, and I am compensated for all my efforts. I am surrounded by Substance, which is always taking the form of supply and always manifesting Itself to me in the form of whatever my need may be at the time.
"I always have an abundance of money and an abundance of whatever it takes to make life happy and opulent. There is a continuous movement toward me of supply, of money, of all that I need to express the fullest life, happiness and action.
"I have an inner understanding of my place in the Universe. I know that it is unique. The Divine has not incarnated in anyone else in just the same individual way that It has in me. I am unique and forever individualized. Therefore, I do not need to imitate anyone or to long for the good that belongs to another. All good is now mine and is now manifest in my experience. I do not compete with anyone, for I am and remain forever myself. This self is united with all selves, but is always an individual and a unique self.
"There is that in me which all people recognize as worth while and desirable, and everyone whom I meet loves this self of mine and recognizes its worth. I draw all toward me and those whom I can benefit and those who can benefit me are irresistibly drawn toward me. I do not strain, will or coerce. I know. The Truth makes me free from the fear of poverty or bondage, and emancipates me from the thought of limitation. I see that money, like everything else that is desirable, must be a spiritual idea, and I know that I have this idea right in my mind at this moment, I shall always have this idea of abundance. It is mine and I take it.
"The opportunity for self-expression and compensation is always open to me and I am at all times compelled to know, accept and operate upon this opportunity. I have abundance because I am abundance. "All that the Father hath is mine."
And So It Is.
