From: THE SILENCE What It Is How To Use It
Select one or more of the affirmations or formulas below to hold in
thought while in the Silence. You may change or vary these as you
Soul is health, spirit is health, God is health, I am
health. Since there is but one mind, there is but one
mentality. This mind and mentality is God; God is health. I
"I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious
and happy and what I am myself I desire for everyone else."
"I am filled with the abundant, intelligent, ever-present life of
Spirit. It flows through me freely, cleansing, healing, purifying
and vitalizing every part. I am one with this life and in it I am
every whit whole."
"The all-powerful Christ Mind in me dissolves and dissipates
every adverse thought. My body is the pure and Holy Temple of
the Living God, and every organ and every function is now
in Divine Order and Harmony."
All the organs of my body are functioning normally and I am
well, whole and complete.
All is mind, all is God, all is universal energy. I am part
of creative force and I am health, abundance, joy and peace.
I am filled, I am thrilled with Life Eternal and I radiate
that life within to me and without to all.
Every experience of my life has been for my good and I am
happy in living.
God is Spirit. I (use your own name) am life. Life Spirit is
now flowing through me freely and I am well, whole and
"Be still and know that I am God."
USE THE FOLLOWING AS A BASIS FOR YOUR MEDITATION AS YOU DEMONSTRATE
HEALTH. OF COURSE, YOU MAY USE OTHER THOUGHTS PROVIDED THEY ARE
CONSTRUCTIVE HEALTH THOUGHTS.
You may practice the Silence sitting, reclining, or in bed.
There is no better way to learn how to relax than by going into the
Silence. Are you tense? Let go. Relax.
Then direct the mind to go from one part of the body to another. Take a
deep breath between each change of your consciousness. Be sure to use
the diaphragmatic or abdominal breathing--breathing through the
nostrils, mouth closed until the muscles of the abdomen expand.
The best time to hold the Silence is as you retire at night, and just
as you awaken in the morning. But you should hold your thought at
least three times a day, without stress or strain, without doubt or
worry, passive in mind and body--perfectly relaxed.
Hold the Silence or thought upon retiring at night, awakening in the
morning, and at noon day. Of course, you may take any other time that
is convenient. You may concentrate on the roadway, street car, home or
office, but it is well, if possible, to have one room for your Silence.
Most people in that way will build up stronger vibrations. At noon now
there are all over the world thousands of others holding Silence so
that there is a great combined mental force working together at one
time for success, health, prosperity and happiness, and we therefore
get the benefit of this great vibration.
The more often you hold the Silence without stress or strain, as a
rule, the quicker may be the demonstration.
The real part of me is Spirit, not matter. I believe that this body of
mine is a Tabernacle for the Spirit. The real "I am" within me is
therefore Spirit. The real "me" is Spirit.
This Spirit is the God Spirit. This is what Jesus meant when in the
fourteenth chapter of John and again in the seventeenth chapter of the
same Gospel, speaking to His Disciples He referred to "I in you, you in
Me and We in God."
My Spirit is a part of the God Spirit. God is health, God is
perfection, God is abundance, God is harmonious. Therefore, the real "I
am" is God; the real "I am" is health, perfection, abundance and
When I am sick I know that it is the material of me that is sick, not
the God Spirit; it is my _physical_ being which is out of harmony, it
is this Tabernacle of which Paul speaks, housing my spirit, which gives
me pain and suffering. The real "me" is not sick, it is _my body_.
For centuries we have held to a wrong idea of life. We have thought
that life is material; but life is spiritual, it is the invisible
within me which is eternal, which is God. Many still believe that life
is material and matter, instead of mind and spirit. I no longer hold
that conception. I believe that all is mind and Spirit.
Just here is where the healing methods of drugs and the scientist's
explanation of life is so limited. Not until we recognize that life is
really a thing of spirit--not matter but mind--not material but
spiritual--do we come into an understanding of Truth.
Jesus said, "God is Spirit," and on different occasions told His
Disciples that this Spirit was within them as well as within Himself.
Therefore, this same Spirit is within me and this same Spirit is the
God Spirit of health, abundance, happiness, harmony and perfection.
God is all health, all abundance, all harmony, peace and perfection.
Therefore the God Spirit within me is the same. I am sick in body; not
in mind, not in Spirit.
Inasmuch as I cannot conceive of God being sick neither can I conceive
of my Spirit being sick. My spirit is health, perfection and harmony.
My body may not be well, but since mind is all, since this material is
subject to the spiritual, since matter is subject to mind, I believe
and affirm that my health does not depend upon matter but upon the God
Spirit within me. It depends not upon the material but the spiritual,
upon the God mind within.
Just as wood when made into a violin and properly tuned, will give
forth harmony, so my body, though made in the material, when properly
tuned by mind will give forth harmonious living, perfect health.
As the tree standing in the forest may be made into the violin music
box of harmony, so my body, the material in the forest of matter, may
be put in tune, become harmonious and be raised to perfection by the
Master Musician, God--His mind within me.
God is all health. No one could conceive of God as being sick. I can
visualize only the eternal spirit of the Infinite Father. Perfection
existing in everything and I being a child in Spirit, am well, whole
and complete in Spirit. My real "I am" is well.
Science now asserts that matter is composed of twelve octaves, just as
in music. My body is the composite of these twelve octaves. Science
also says that every cell atom, every electron in my body is
This spirit of mine is housed in the Tabernacle of the body which is
composed of millions and millions of cells, all of which having
intelligence respond in my body according to the way I think. Every
word I entertain, every thought I hold, influences everyone of the
millions of cells making up this Tabernacle.
My body is made whole and complete physically. That is, all the cells
of my body are made over new every eleven months. The body I have today
is not the body I had eleven months ago. I get a new body every eleven
months and my body is today what my thinking was yesterday, the day
before that and the months before that. My body in the future depends
upon my thinking in the future. I am what I think I am.
When I affirm that I am well, whole and complete; that I am perfect,
harmonious and strong, I am suggesting to every atom in my body
perfection and every atom in turn begins to make my body over, new in
health and and in perfection.
I may or I may not have to wait for the element of time to make over
every cell. That may be done spontaneously and instantly. There is no
limitation to the power of God so I shall not set a time limit for my
healing, knowing that all things are possible with the Father. I affirm
that now I have that which I desire. I know that now the Spirit of
divine health is surging through me, touching and reaching every atom
of my body and that now the God Spirit within me is perfect and that
Spirit makes my body perfect.
"Man is a Spiritual Being. Man expresses himself mentally and manifests
himself physically. The One Life animates all that exists. Harmony of
existence depends upon the polarities of the three aspects of life. The
mind is at ease when open to the inflow of the Spirit. It is discordant
when it follows sensory impressions. The body is healthy when
responsive to the direction of the spiritualized mind. It becomes
diseased when it accepts the physical as its guide. One achieves mental
ease and physical health through his mental polarity. If open to the
physical and closed to the spiritual, discord will prevail. If open to
the spiritual and closed to the physical, he lives the One Life, in
mental ease and physical health. I open my mind to the inflow of the
Spirit. I place my body under the control of my spiritualized mind. I
feel the One Life animate my mind and my body. I AM a Spiritual Being.
I AM Perfect Health!"
