Dr. Holmes writes on pg 154 of the Science of Mind:

“Every day and every hour we are meeting the eternal realities of life, and in such degree as we co-operate with these eternal realities in love, in peace, in wisdom, and in joy – believing and receiving – we are automatically blessed.”

All of Life is telling us to open up to a greater realization of that Eternal Reality we call God. How do we do that? Religious Science gives us the great tools of Spiritual Mind Treatment, meditation, visualization, affirmations, etc., and we can use these tools to work with the answer that Dr. Holmes gave us in the above statement … Believing and Receiving.

To see Dr. Holmes himself saying one of his most famous sayings, click on this link:

Dr. Holmes truly believed this statement and was open to receiving the benefits of this statement being firmly established in mind. Because of this, we have our wonderful teaching, and many examples of how it works for all.

Believing means we can no longer tell the stories we’ve been using to excuse our lack and limitation. So many of us suffer from some degree of plomitus – “Poor Little Ole Me. We unconsciously tell our stories every chance we get – not realizing that in our repetitions, the Universal Law is acting upon them, thereby making our stories even more real!

Receiving means trusting. Being willing to trust the Power that is greater than we are, and acting as if our desires have already been met.

So simple, yet not exactly easy! Today decide to set a part of your mind aside to act as your witness. Affirm that every time you launch into the latest rendition of your “story” something happens to gently and easily remind you that that story is no longer your Truth. Treat to open your mind, your heart and your whole being to receive more good, more God, in your life today!!

Joyful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


I recognize the Presence of Universal Power in my life right now. This Power is an emanation of Divine Life, and I am an expression of this Life. This Power works through spiritual Law and is unconditionally loving. It works for me by working through me, as me!

As I speak my word, the whole Universe is behind it. I declare I express physical, emotional and mental health. All the areas of my life reflect this Divine health. No longer are my finances, my work, my relationships, or my health affected by the stories I used to tell. Those stories no longer have any power. There is only One Power, and that Power is God. I believe and receive.

Gratefully I acknowledge my life as Divine Life made manifest. I celebrate the blessings in and of my life. I celebrate knowing that as I accept the Greater Good in my life, I do it not only for myself, but for everyone. I release this Treatment, knowing it is already so, and so it is.
