In class one day someone told me they felt affirmations didn’t work. Gently I told them “If you feel they don’t work, then they are working by not working.” What we focus on is what we attract into our experience.
Another student felt that when they were saying affirmations, or even the “realization” step of Spiritual Mind Treatment, they were lying. In Truth, they were not lying about the spiritual prototype they are creating with their thoughts, however, their desire to stay in integrity in the material world was working against them.
Then this morning I received an e-mail newsletter from Marty Marsh, author of The Law of Attraction for Everyday Living in which he included a three step process from a chapter called “Fire Your Desire”:
The first step is to declare what you want, using the words “I am in the process of _____” at the beginning … for instance, if one is Treating, Affirming or Intending for more money in their lives they would say:
"I am in the process of attracting all actions, thoughts, situations and experiences necessary to have all the money I need and want.
(Adding “I am in the process of …” would help the one that was uncomfortable about “lying.” Being creative, we are always in the process of something!)
The second step is to complete these sentences: (my examples follow)
• I love it when... I can pay my bills with ease
• I love knowing... I always have more than enough.
• I love how it feels... to never worry about money.
• I love the thought of... being able give away money.
• I get excited at the thought... of recognizing the Source within me
• I get excited when I picture...myself debt-free!
• I love seeing myself...as a financially independent person.
(This step would help the student who was feeling it didn’t work to get focused on what they wanted to feel.)
The third step is to take the thoughts and feelings and put it all together:
"I am delighted and grateful the Law of Attraction is creating and orchestrating all that needs to happen so I always have enough money for everything I want and need."
Marty Marsh says it is all about raising the vibration, which to me, is about raising our consciousness. There are so many delightful methods to play with in this wonderfully infinite field of creativity we reside in. Playing with Marsh’s process this morning reminded me of an even simpler one, created by the late
Divine Mind is now assisting me in attaining and maintaining the consciousness of …… having more than enough money for everything I want and need!
I personally like the simplicity of the last statement. I can trust Divine Mind to include the thoughts and feelings necessary. After all It is infinitely intelligent!!

SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
There is only One Life – a Light that resides within me and all things. It is Power Itself. It is constantly attracting to Itself all It needs to express Itself as us, through our thoughts and feelings.
Therefore I now declare I am ready to step into a greater expression of this One Life. I let my Light shine so brightly that all who see me have a deeper awareness of their own Truth. As I attract more and more good into my life, I realize it has been there all along. All I had to do was open my heart and mind to It and It appeared.
Divine Mind is always assisting me in attaining the consciousness of highest good and greatest joy, in many different forms. I am so grateful I know this, and now, not only do I know it, but I have embodied it, and it is a part of me. Whether my good is in the form of money, health, love, creativity, inner peace, or all of them together, I know I am always in the process of creation, and this is good, very good.
I release these words to Spiritual Law, knowing they are done. And so It is.
