DAILY TRANSFORMATIONAL NUGGETS FOR THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT: 30 Days of Faith, Hope, Prayer, and Gratitude – Day 8 “Treatments”
Today’s Body Connection: The word treatment means action and management. When I think of body treatments what comes to mind is healing and recovery. Whether we are already physically active or just beginning our practice, we must remember our healing treatments and management. Stretching the body before and after every workout is key. Taking time to see your massage therapist allows you to activate deep recovery during your period of the physical transformation. A weekly healing session with your holistic practitioner takes you to a deeper level of physical, mental, and spiritual empowerment. Yes, we must work hard, but we must heal even harder. One of the most successful practices to repair the body is meditation. If we constantly breakdown the body without equally nurturing it, we will never know wholeness.
Meditative Thought: I attended The University of Transformational Studies and Leadership at the Agape International Spiritual Center, where we study a form of prayer called Affirmative Prayer; It’s also known as prayer treatments or mind treatments.” I am asked quite frequently what is the difference between prayer and a prayer treatment. The easiest way to differentiate between the two is to remember that prayer treatment is a prayer, but not every prayer is a treatment. Ernest Holmes says a treatment is when you acknowledge the Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence of God and recognize man’s unity with spirit. During Affirmative Prayer, there are specific steps a spiritual practitioner conducts, 6 step in all: Gratitude, Recognition of God, Unification of the One, Realization of the truth, Thanksgiving, and Release. Each step aligns the mind and body, with the Divine. Today dive into your prayer practice so that you may know your authentic self.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, acknowledge the Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence power of God in your prayer time. Speak a word about the greatness of the Universe.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I recognize the omnipresence of God. Amen
