Self-help, self-healing, self-wholeness, self-love
By my self-help, self-healing, self-wholeness and self-love, I am
always positive. Being positive means that I take charge of my
thought, take charge of my attitude, take charge of my action and take
charge of the world I create about me.
Take Charge Of My Thought
I take charge of my thought by determining I am master of my
thought. If I am master of my thinking I live in an aura of positive
thought; I keep every thought in the realm of expectation and
I remembered that every thought I think individually is vitally
important. If I laugh at sad jokes, or enjoy shoddy stories, or
delight in unhappiness to another, then I can expect that type of
thinking to multiply in my life and my experiences. Be it ever so
small and seemingly unimportant, any thought entertained in my
consciousness manifests in my life.
I know the principle. I know the Law of cause and effect. I know
that my thought, however trivial it may appear to be, bears fruit.
The grown son of a daughter of a dear friend of my mother's was
experiencing ill health. Mother asked me to treat for him. She said
the entire healing ministry was treating for him as well as healing
ministries of many other religious groups. I told mother I did not
need to hear that others were treating for his wholeness, for that
could make me be less effective.
However, I treated for the boy who was living away from home. I
spoke my word: I am whole and perfect. John, I see you whole and
As I did this, I felt a confidence and assurance that the boy was
whole and perfect. Mother asked that I write and call the young man
and talk with him as a caring minister. She did not need to tell me
that, I was only too happy to fulfill her expectation of me.
My thought was John is whole and perfect even as I am. I
wrote him, a positive letter stating this truth. I called him several
days later after he received the letter and spoke with him. He asked
me to instantly come to visit him at his home. I drove to his house
affirming the truth I knew for him.
When the door opened, there was John standing there full of health
and vigor. He reached out, wrapped his arms around my neck and gave me
whooping big hug. He fairly shouted into my face: I am whole and
perfect. I know it was YOUR treatment that did it. I know. I know. I
Naturally, I was delighted for his happiness. I was confident in my
treatment since from the first, I saw myself whole and perfect and
then I knew anything I thought of would also be whole and perfect—and
so he is.
Who did the healing? The many healing agencies? The many ministers
and practitioners who were called in to effectually work on his
wholeness? No, it was I. Of this, I must always be sure. My thought is
the healing agency. For whatever I think in my thought manifests as a
reality in my world and the world of my creation. That is the why the
Law of cause and effect functions.
Am I overzealous of the healing power? Hardly. However, whenever I
think my thought and place my word into motion, results happen. All of
the other agencies may have done their work perfectly also. If I do
not believe it is my thought, my word that heals, than I am false to
myself and an ineffective practitioner and minister.
I am an effective practitioner. I am an effective minister.
Take Charge Of My Attitude
I take charge of my attitude under all circumstances. Often a
condition prevails that makes me see something contrary to the
wholeness, which it is my nature to be. When this happens I
immediately speak positively to myself saying: I am the creator of my
world. I determine what I see in my world and I alone make this
decision. I see beauty, purity, wholeness and truth. I am in charge of
It would be so easy to run like a scared dog with my tail between
my legs, but this is not a privilege I give myself. I must take
control. I must be master of my attitude. Being master of my attitude
I stand firm, announce the truth—within myself—and abide by this
truth to its evidential conclusion.
One of my students said to me the other day: I need money. I
have done the courses of the University of Healing. I know the
principle. I know it SHOULD work, but I need money. Why do I not have
enough money to live comfortably?
I could only answer her: You are independently wealthy. You have
all the money at your fingertips that anyone else has. You will reveal
this money in your bank account when, and only when, you are in charge
of your attitude—one pointedly in charge of your every thought about
your desires. When you can live in the consciousness of wealth, you
will have more money than you have ever dreamed.
She moaned: That is easy for you to say. You are rich. You have
everything you want. You live abundantly.
Yes, I confirmed, I am abundant. I am independently wealthy.
Every desire I have to serve our students around the world floods into
the UNI and I am lovingly blessed. You too will be blessed when you
remain consistent to your dream.
Abundance was not always expressed in my life. There was a time
when money was scarce. However, regardless of any appearance, my
attitude remained firm that I am independently wealthy. And so it is.
Let it be for you in this same light.
My student opened her eyes to the blessings she already
experienced. In the process she changed her attitude about personal
wealth. The next time I saw her she was exceedingly comfortable
financially—plus in health, relationships enjoying every desire of
Take Charge Of My Action
I take charge of my action—it is so easy to live in the world
mentally and forget to take charge of my mannerisms, my habitual way
of doing things, of how I appear to my world and myself. What is my
response to things I see, things I hear, things I know and things I
think about? Do I critique everything based on a positive attitude,
positive thoughts and positive actions? If I do not I am missing a
vital clue to living in a positive world, living in a positive world
of my creation.
Recently one of the men operating a company working on campus told
me his mother was ill. He did not know our philosophy. He heard we
were into "healing" and he asked that we pray for his
mother. I replied that we would be happy to see his mother whole and
perfect right now. A few days later he spoke to me again. He said, I
have been watching you. You are not trying to promote your teaching on
me. In fact, I do not know what you teach. You all live such happy
lives as I see you here and this tells me there must be something good
in what you teach.
Can you tell me something about what you teach?
I told him, with his employees closely listening to our
conversation, I teach my students one thing: Be yourself and have
fun. I tell them, Go out and live what YOU believe and your actions
will speak so loudly of who and what you are, the entire world will
follow you and delight in knowing you more and more.
Yes, he answered. Immediately he and his fellow workers asked
for copies of the GIST so they could learn what to practice. Actions
speak loudly and importantly.
Take Charge Of My Word
I take charge of my word and as I do I live in a miracle world. I
let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be
acceptable in MY sight and I am happy.
It would be so easy to be sympathetic of people and their problems.
It would be so human to be caring and loving from the relative point
of view and therein be acceptable to and by all of humanity. This sort
of thing is not being positive. To be positive I must speak the truth
and stand by the principle of the Law of cause and effect. If I am
sympathetic to another I put the cause in motion for their unhappiness
to continue. I condone whatever it is they are experiencing. In doing
this type of caring I am part of the problem and definitely not part
of the solution.
When at all times my words are positive and unconditionally loving,
seeing myself and all in my world experiencing the highest and best I
can know for them, then and then alone am I being a blessing in their
world, speaking my word of infinite love for them. I am now the
solution to their seeking and finding a positive joy filled life.
