Dr. Carol Zaehn of Prayer That Works writes: The same way people go to a physician to receive a medical treatment, one can visit a spiritual adviser and receive a spiritual mind treatment. Based on the understanding that one’s mind and beliefs create one’s reality, the treatment process re-frames the statements in the mind to create a new reality.
In the early 20th century, Dr. Ernest Holmes brought forth his timeless book on The Science of Mind, an in-depth commpendium of how the individual mind interfaces with universal principles of manifestation to take one’s thoughts and carry them into form. A hundred years ago, it was a radical idea. Now, metaphysical (beyond the physical) ideas are widely accepted and embraced as well as scientifically proven.
Treatment is the tool of manifesting from beyond the physical, from beyond what you are currently experiencing in time and space. No longer is a person “doomed” to live with just those things he/she can see, hear, taste, smell and touch and the outer circumstances of one’s life. What is now known is that a person lives with those things and ideas he can think and believe in his mind and in his heart. He lives with thoughts and beliefs within himself, and those thoughts can be consciously chosen. You can choose what you want to think and believe. The power to choose is yours.
There is an old expression that says “as above, so below” and “as within, so without”. That is how it is with treatment – whatever you believe within, you project out into form. Treatment is the process of shifting your perception within so that what you are projecting outwardly becomes more harmonious and uplifting. When the shift inside is based on timeless spiritual principles, the change on the outside is in accordance with anyone’s definition of God, Life , Truth, Nature, Love, Wholeness. All spiritual paths support goodness, compassion, a loving and giving nature, abundance, kindness and the revelation of God’s grace in the world. That is the objective of treatment, and it is effective because it refocuses the mind to these higher qualities and then projects them out into the world instead of the limited, contracted and negative thoughts one was previously using.
That means that a person can choose kindness over meanness, for himself or for his boss. It means a wife can choose harmony in her marriage where before there may have been conflict. It means you can choose healing for yourself when you’ve been diagnosed with a serious disorder and expect to be healed.
