The Exist Poem

Just about all of the assignments for the Spiritual Practices class were to do spiritual mind treatments for our prayer partner, a classmate. I'll keep his issues and concerns private, as well as those I did for other friends. This, however, is my final project for the class, a poem. I think it summarizes pretty well how I was feeling during the class!

Divine Right Relationship

Another class I took before I started my practitioner training was Spiritual Practices. We learned about affirmative prayer, meditation, visioning, and journaling. We had prayer partners in class to practice doing spiritual mind treatments for others. Our week two assignment was to write a spiritual mind treatment on a current condition we would like to change. I wrote a treatment to release past attachments and attract a new romantic relationship. Feel free to use as is or adapt for your own purposes!

Realizing My Full Potential

In week seven of the Self Mastery class, we read "Some Elements of Commitment" in our student workbook. The four elements are:

  • My Principle-Centeredness. The foundation of faith that undergirds my human life and values, and validates WHO I AM. My Centeredness in Principle provides inner strength and stability in all I do. 
  • My Purpose. What I am in the world for. My faith-based sense of mission and direction. The thrust of my life. My Purpose gives basic meaning to my life. 
  • My Finite Objectives. My work. The finite ways in which I express my faith in my Purpose. My Objectives define the actions needed to implement my Purpose and bring my Vision into realization. 
  • My Vision. My capacity to see ultimate, archetypal possibilities in my Purpose and move toward making them real. My vision is my potential for creativity in living. 

Our assignment was to pick one of the elements of commitment that needed the most strengthening and write a spiritual mind treatment addressing it. I chose My Purpose and to some extent My Vision. I focused on the sense of unworthiness that up until that point had been keeping me from my mastery.

Releasing the Need to Please

This is a treatment addressing how I was before I discovered Science of Mind, living in denial of my human potential and spiritual needs. This assignment was for week six of the Self Mastery class. Feel free to use as is or adapt for your own use!

Spiritual Mind Treatment

My need to please is preventing me from reaching my full human potential, preventing me from being true to myself.

I Am Love and Absolutely Worth Loving

In week five of the Self Mastery class, our assignment was to write a spiritual mind treatment for an issue that came up while reviewing the chapter on 'Freeing Myself and Others to Love.' Here is mine. Feel free to use it or adapt it if it resonates with you!

Spiritual Mind Treatment

Fear of abandonment makes me reluctant to trust in love relationships. It is difficult to believe that I am worth loving.

My Presence Is a Gift

In week four of Self-Mastery class our assignment was to read the following piece by Paul Williams from Remember Your Essence and write a thought paper: 

          Your Essence

          Picture a burning log, like in a fireplace, a hearth. 

          Now see it as if it were floating in the air a few feet in front of you, 
          and notice that there are two elements here: the log, and the fire 
          that clings to it. 

          Now move this image of a burning object into your body, so that you 
          can feel it like a warm, comforting glow inside your chest. 

          This burning log is real, and it exists inside you.

Restoring Myself to Wholeness

My assignment during week two of Self-Mastery class involved a spiritual mind treatment for the issue that came up for me while we were doing some heart work (our more uplifting term for 'homework') on Wholeness. I had not been taking very good care of myself. Time to love myself more. 

If this treatment resonates with you, feel free to adapt it for yourself.
