Happy Thanksgiving

I am one with the Divine Presence and Power that is operating in and through me at all times. It is not some power, it is all power existing everywhere for every one to use. This power is a power for good and I have absolute faith in its guidance, wisdom and direction.

I stand in gratitude for the clarity and insight that each and every experience brings into my life. I am forever strengthened by the light and wisdom of Spirit’s eternal gift of grace that empowers me to persevere. I see every situation as an opportunity for greater expansion and fuller expression. I gratefully accept the fullness of life and I appreciate the abundance of openhearted and deep friendships that allow my journey to be so much sweeter.

I rejoice and give thanks for the use of a limitless Creative Power that meets every demand according to my understanding and belief. I accept, claim and affirm that my mind is a Center of Divine operation which transcends anything that I have ever experienced in the past. With a thankful heart and joyous enthusiasm, I now let this be, and so it is.

The Inseparability of Love and Forgiveness – November 23, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Gratitude: An Unconditional Quality of Consciousness.

There is a profound reason why the practice of spiritual mind treatment includes the step of thanksgiving: it reminds us that all that we need to wake up to our true nature and live the life divine has already been given to us by our Creator Source. The topic on November 23, 2014 was The Inseparability of Love and Forgiveness. The question is not about whether we ourselves or someone whom we perceive as having slighted us are worthy of forgiveness. The question is about whether or not we have the abundance of love to forgive both ourselves and others. When we withhold forgiveness, we withhold love. As the adage goes, “To err is human, to forgive is divine.” The more readily we forgive, the more we express the Divine Love within us.

Clarity of Thought

[An excerpt from The Art of Living by Ernest Holmes]

When you examine your thought, you will find it is made up of contradicting beliefs. In one moment you may be filled with faith, with enthusiasm for life, and the next moment a sense of depression may sweep over you. This shows that the thought patterns oppose each other. Mental instability and uncertainty follow. Your job is to clarify this whole field of thought and to learn to live affirmatively. Make a daily habit of using the following affirmations:

I am surrounded by an Infinite Intelligence which reacts to my thought.

I realize that the creative power of this Divine Intelligence is with me now, and I know that I am using this Power and that my word, operating through It, will cause It to bring into my experience the good which I desire. (Mention some specific good and accept is as an already established fact.)

Believing in divine guidance, I know that my mind is continuously impressed with images of right action.

I know that everything in my life is controlled by the action of Truth and Love.

I am led, guided and inspired by the living Spirit.

I am compelled to move in the right direction, always to know what to do and how to do it.

I know that inwardly I am spiritually perfect, I have complete happiness, and I experience an abundance of good. Happiness and success rightfully belong to me.

I am successful in all my undertakings. (Again consciously accept the good you desire.)

The Empowering Grace of Perseverance – November 16, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Gratitude: An Unconditional Quality of Consciousness.

There is a profound reason why the practice of spiritual mind treatment includes the step of thanksgiving: it reminds us that all that we need to wake up to our true nature and live the life divine has already been given to us by our Creator Source. The topic on November 16, 2014 was The Empowering Grace of Perseverance. Webster’s Dictionary tells us that perseverance is remaining steadfast “in a course of action in spite of difficulties, obstacles, opposition, or discouragement; a continued patient effort.” Our commitment to persevere in our spiritual practices despite any appearances of setbacks, derailments, or distractions is supported by an assisting Grace that empowers us to keep on keeping on. Let us all bend a knee of gratitude in the knowledge that we are not now nor ever will be walking the journey alone.

Perseverance

I am the perfect expression of love and wisdom, which unifies me with the presence, power and mind of the Divine. There is just one
all knowing Mind and its power maintains and sustains me. I am one with the Infinite Intelligence that operates in and as everyone and everything.

I am poised for a positive course of action. Every avenue is open and ready to receive and to reveal new and wonderful possibilities. As I persevere, I perceive the infiniteness of life and see the perfect creative ideas unfolding. Realizing that there is that within me that is finding its full and complete expression, discouragement is impossible. I meet each thing as it comes and stay steadfast in my purpose. There is no place for limitation or contradiction in the Divine Plan. My place in life is part of the Divine Plan and my life expression is included in that plan. I see myself as the limitless expression of God. For all of this, I am
truly grateful and so it is!

Appreciation – An Aerodynamic Energy of the Heart – November 9, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Gratitude: An Unconditional Quality of Consciousness.

There is a profound reason why the practice of spiritual mind treatment includes the step of thanksgiving: it reminds us that all that we need to wake up to our true nature and live the life divine has already been given to us by our Creator Source. The topic on November 9, 2014 was Appreciation – An Aerodynamic Energy of the Heart. Authentic appreciation gives our heart wings. These wings fly us directly to our Source that unconditionally pours itself into our lives through our loved ones, our spiritual practices and community, through all Life in its myriad expressions. Even in the face of challenges, appreciation for the clarity and gifts appreciation delivers brings healing. When appreciation arises in our hearts, prayer is the result, which is why it has been said that “Thank you” is the most complete prayer.

The Value of Appreciation

I am the expression of Infinite creative power.
As I sing praises of appreciation, adversity disappears and I am filled with a spirit of gladness.
Praise is faith and belief in action.
“Thank you” is my prayer of power that connects me to my creator.
I generously give and graciously receive.
I am praise-worthy.
I love and value myself.
Singing praises of appreciation brings more and more good that is worth praising.
I have complete faith in the Law as my silent partner.
My thoughts create my experience and I keep my thoughts uplifted always.
I am enriched by letting the action of God move through me.
I accept each experience as a blessing of great value.
I believe that the Divine Plan has included me in its expression.
I am eternally grateful for the courage to look beyond appearances and move forward with clarity, confidence and conviction.
I willingly trust life and maintain an attitude of gratitude.
I deeply appreciate the motivating power of unwavering faith and acceptance, which successfully expresses my greatest potential.
I experience an increasing good beyond my fondest imagination.
I appreciate myself and everyone in my life.
I give thanks in advance, knowing and believing that every endeavor is effortless, powerfully positive and is accomplished successfully as a blessing. So it is!

The Paradox of Gratitude – November 2, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Gratitude: An Unconditional Quality of Consciousness.

There is a profound reason why the practice of spiritual mind treatment includes the step of thanksgiving: it reminds us that all that we need to wake up to our true nature and live the life divine has already been given to us by our Creator Source. The topic on November 2, 2014 was The Paradox of Gratitude. As we survey the contents of our lives, we notice there are those things for which we are grateful and those which we would prefer to be different than they are. And therein lies the paradox. When it comes to creating our gratitude list, we automatically look outward and count “things” to be grateful for, rather than turning inward and being grateful for the simple fact that we have this precious human incarnation just as it is and just as we are in the present moment.
