Have you ever had those moments when your mind is chattering so much it seems to be taking up all the real estate in your brain? That’s when your vitality and inspiration often go into foreclosure.
Are you raining on your own parade? No matter how evolved or enlightened we are, there are times when the spark of enthusiasm just doesn’t seem to be forthcoming. Enthusiasm is contagious and it delights in having playmates. When met with apathy, enthusiasm can diminish and dissolve into disappointment. These are the times we have to reach much deeper, to the depths of our soul, followed by a conscious choice to be renewed, re-inspired and refueled with enthusiasm.
Enthusiasm is a divine state of mind. The Greek words en-theos, mean in God. Feeling enthusiastic is having God inside of us. That’s inspiring! Why not greet life’s challenges with inspiration instead of desperation? Everything always gets better, that’s a given. After a good rain, the sun shines. Something within you knows the right thing to do, the right choice to make. You are filled with goodness, courage, strength and brilliance that is still untouched. We are here on earth for about a nano-second. Why not make the best of it, one thought at a time? Constructive thoughts produce constructive results.
Be kind to yourself! Maintain an attitude of gratitude. Being thankful brings us right back to enthusiasm. Make a list of all the things you are grateful for and watch them multiply!!

I am one with the one mind, the one life and the one power. This is the power of good and it is within and all around every part of my being; it is limitless, eternal, supreme and far-reaching in its action. I see the good in all people. My complete acceptance and recognition of this truth re-enforces my consciousness of perfect clarity, in loving relationships, radiant health, consistent happiness, ever-increasing wealth and creative self-expression.
I am successfully prospered in all my ways. I am a cheerful giver and a grateful receiver. I consciously accept the responsibility and sacred privilege of actively expressing my creative abilities, talents and skills as a function of my divine authority. I am certain that my consciousness of loving peace causes me to act in harmonious and constructive ways and others to do the same. Constructive thoughts produce constructive results.
With gratitude, absolute trust and invincible faith, I declare this word as sound and complete in the law. With a joyous expectancy, I graciously release this with peace and confidence, knowing, feeling, believing and embodying the complete fulfillment as a perfect demonstration in my life now, and so It Is!
I am one with all that is. I am wholeness expressed as God-Being everywhere present. I am complete in the realization that an active power of divine energy is in, through and around me directing all of my actions. Everything in my life aligns with this pattern of Truth and dissolves all fear. I am illumined and sustained by the everlasting spark of Truth.
My whole being is the out-picturing of a loving, healthy and harmonious attitude of divine passion. This journey of life is tempered to every expression, every action and every form of intelligence.

I am eternally grateful to know, “With God all things are possible.” I believe this is the absolute Truth with no exception or limitation of any kind. I am in harmonious agreement with the heartbeat of God that guides me to freely express my passion with confidence and calm assurance.
This word is already established in Universal Intelligence as a clear and steadfast demonstration, I give thanks and let it be, and so it is!
The Science of Mind (often referred to as the “Textbook”) is the definitive treatise written by Ernest Holmes about the teachings of Science of Mind. In January each year, in Science of Mind Centers throughout the world, ministers talk about the basic principles of Science of Mind, which are covered in the first 4 chapters of the Textbook. To learn more about the principles of Science of Mind, listen to Rev. Pam’s January 2011 Talks about the first 4 chapters of The Science of Mind at www.somspiritualcenterla.org/education/what-is-science-of-mind. The Talks are in English and Spanish.
I give thanks for Divine Intelligence that guides and directs my every step to live life actively, wisely and fully in the present moment. I release all fear, known or unknown, and consciously choose to live each moment with absolute and complete faith. I always have ample time and energy to complete each task promptly, completely and effortlessly.
Spirit works through me in now time. I am always prompt and ready for new experiences. Every thought, word and action is motivated from on high and takes place on time, in time, at the right time and every time. There are no delays and no belief in procrastination. I believe in the all-sustaining power of good that governs my life here and now.
Opportunities present themselves at the perfect time and propel me forward with ease, wisdom and understanding. Every demonstration is immediate and successfully completed.
Now is the appointed time! I give thanks for instantaneous right action governing this word, I release it, let it be and so it is!!
I am one with the limitless, eternal and supreme power of Divine Mind. Its action responds to me in perfect order, balance and harmony. This realization has transformed my life into a constant joyful, loving and prosperous experience. I am heir to the kingdom and willingly accept its over flowing abundance of good.
I am the Divine Principle being the self as whole, complete and perfect. Consciousness is the only power and it always brings forth a continuous flow of potent fulfillment through every action. My union with Infinite Presence grounds me in peace, centers me in grace and directs the manifestation of my divine purpose.
I am the embodiment of spirit’s richness. Accepting this absolute truth, my wisdom expands and dissolves any thought, feeling or belief that is unhealthy in body, mind or spirit. All my good moves toward me and increases good everywhere. I accept it and expect it and joyously welcome it with an open heart and mind.
I accept this word and the power of it as the law of my life. It now activates right and perfect action in all of my affairs. In gratitude, I let it be, I accept it to be so now, and so it is!
I am the full expression of Divine Intelligence. I accept the responsibility of its perfect activity in, through and around me. I am the consciousness of pure receptivity; my experiences are always a blessing. I am that which I am conscious of being.
I stand on the stable ground of faith. Faith is my fortune, my conviction and my reality; no person, place or condition can oppose the power of my practical faith. My success is dependent on nothing outside of myself, but on my consciousness of consistent faith. I keep myself focused on the Promised Land and my faith deepens.
I release everything in my life that is not enriching and empowering. I invest every moment in spiritual conviction and unwavering faith. The more faith I have, the more faith I have.
I give thanks for the complete fulfillment of this Truth. I embody it, accept it, know it and believe it with absolute invincible faith, I let it be, and so it is!
It has been said that we don’t get what we want, we get what we expect! If we ask for a lot, but actually expect a little, we will get the little. Our progress is based on our idea of increase. You can change your idea (thinking) about it, and quickly prove to yourself that it is done unto you as you believe.
People grow old because they don’t expect to increase anything, except years.
There is no reason to lose one’s enthusiasm about progressing, growing, increasing while — at the same time — feeling vibrant and alive. When you expect more to happen, you will begin to attract more. Be sure that what you are expecting is truly what you want. Many people are very good at expecting the worst to happen — and it does. Don’t you think the opposite could also happen? The question to ask yourself is: What AM I thinking?
Habitual negative thinking can be cured by replacing it with a new habit of positive thinking. Each thought builds a new consciousness. Repetition is the key. Here are some affirmations to say that will replace old worn out negative thinking:
I AM VIBRANT HEALTH.
I AM PEACEFUL AND CALM.
I AM LOVE.
I AM WEALTH.
I AM UNDERSTANDING.
I AM APPRECIATED.
I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL THAT I HAVE.
I AM POWERFUL.
I EXPRESS MYSELF FREELY AND AM CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD.
ALL THE GOOD I AM SEEKING IS SEEKING ME.
I EXPECT THE BEST AND THE BEST ALWAYS HAPPENS!

Right now, in this moment, I am one with only God’s presence. There are no false Gods before me. I accept one power, God power, as the guiding light of my life. Unified with this power, I am always abundantly supported by this infinite intelligence.
Prosperous living is my natural state. I call forth the full functioning power of spirit to instantly produce and out-picture affluence, abundance and prosperity. I think wealth and feel wealthy. I am anchored in the consciousness of great richness and attract the likeness of that richness in all people, places and things. Spirit knows no stinginess, covertness, ignorance or laziness. I appreciate and graciously accept its ever-increasing generosity.
I am forever grateful for the continuing flow of Divine supply and expanding goodness in all of my experiences. I am never needy nor greedy. I willingly participate and contribute to the circulation of God’s supply in every way I can. There is always plenty to share and plenty to spare by Divine law.
I joyfully accept the embodiment and manifestation of this absolute Truth, as prosperity is the law of my life. With an abundance of gratitude I release it and let it be, and so it is!
Ernest Holmes suggests that we declare this at least one hundred times a day. It is fun to memorize and say in the shower, in traffic, or anytime you are waiting. It is a perfect re-programming tool, to replace mind chatter, judgement, self-criticism, and self-condemnation.
It is Spirit’s Power Ball!! Make it fun and be sure and share it! Here you go!!
Good and more good is mine.
An ever-increasing good is mine.
There is no limit to the good which is mine.
Everywhere I go I see this good, I feel it,
I experience it.
It crowds itself against me, flows through me, expresses itself in me,
and multiplies itself around me NOW, and so it is!!
