There is only one Universal Mind that is all powerful, all-knowing, and always present.

“The universal Mind contains all knowledge. It is the potential ultimate of all things. To it, all things are possible.” — Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, Chapter III What It Does

There is only one Universal Mind that is all powerful, all-knowing, and always present. It is the Source of all goodness and all possibilities. I know that I am the divine essence of the One and Source flows through me, in me and as me.

I relax in the knowing that Spirit is unlimited and therefore, I am unlimited. I creatively express myself in my work, life, relationships, health, and prosperity. I remember my limitlessness and focus on what I desire.

I am grateful for the abundance in all areas of my life, for all that I am, and for all that is. I release these words with complete trust and faith in the law of Mind, knowing that it is already done and so it is. I create possibilities in all areas of my life with ease and grace.

— Alice Elliott R.Sc.P.

There is one Source of all that is, the source of everyone and everything.

“Each one of us is an outlet to God and an inlet to God.” — Ernest Holmes

There is one Source of all that is, the source of everyone and everything. It is always available and ever present. I am one with this eternal Spirit and It flows through me, in me and as me.

I create what I want in my life by remembering that I am connected at all times to God. I see the God in others and see them with the eyes of Love. What I send out returns to me abundantly–love, health, and prosperity. I know that God is limitless and so am I.

I am grateful for my life, health, relationships, and wealth. I release these words with complete confidence in the law of Mind, knowing that it is already done and so it is.

I know that God flows from me, to me, and through me.

— Alice Elliott R.Sc.P.

In this moment, I realize that I have the power to choose my life.

In this moment, I realize that I have the power to choose my life. As a conscious thinker, in tune and in alignment with the Divine Power that is the be-all and end-all of all creation, I consciously choose to use this power for good in my life and in the lives of all that I touch.

In every moment, I am consciously aware that I am both the inlet and the outlet of this Divine Love and it manifests itself in me, as me, and through me. Today I choose to stand up and be counted to let myself and all others in my life know the Truth of who I really am. I stand on principle and let that principle reveal itself through my body of affairs. I let the prosperity of the universe flow through me and show its opulence to whoever has eyes to see! I declare that health is my divine birthright and it shows up as a body, mind and spirit that is forever honouring the life that I have been blessed in creating! I am forever grateful for the love and peace in my life that shows itself in my relationship at home, at work and wherever I am, for wherever I am God is! I am so blessed today with an abundance of creative thoughts that flow through this ever expanding and never ending moment that I call life! And life is good!

Today and from this day forward I accept all good in my life with an excitement and expectancy of the ever present, all knowing and all powerful presence of Spirit in my life! As I write, read, speak or hear this treatment I know that it is manifest as my life right now so I release it knowing it is already so!

And so it is.

I know that there is an Infinite Power which infuses and fills me with Its presence now and always.


“Your clarity, tranquility, and power lie within the ‘now’! The present is the timeless, spaceless dimension of eternity. Reclaim your power! Live and flow in the present moment!” — Healing Ancient Wounds: The Renegade’s Wisdom, John F. Barnes, PT page 261 (2010)


I know that there is an Infinite Power which infuses and fills me with Its presence now and always. That amazing Power is in all of creation, and is the energy that fills each cell of my body, and the spaces between. I am connected at all times, feeling that sense of centred presence as I speak these words which I know to be absolutely true. I know that the present moment is all there is. I know that as I get absolutely clear about this fact, Spirit moves in a way in my life that surprises and excites me. I release all those old messages of the past that no longer serve, and I relax into that place of true connection with Spirit, which only occurs in the present moment. Energy flows through me easily and with each one I meet. As I move into each day, I do it with an eager anticipation, realizing there is only NOW. For this and so many blessings in my life, I am indeed grateful. I release this prayer treatment, in confidence that it is already done.

And So it is.


I claim my power in the present moment. I choose to live in the flow with grace.

There is One Infinite Presence of Absolute Love that is the origin of everything that exists, seen and unseen.

“Let us never forget that everyone is a centre in the Consciousness of God, and no one is more important than another.” — Ernest Holmes

There is One Infinite Presence of Absolute Love that is the origin of everything that exists, seen and unseen. I know that my being is an emanation of this Infinite Presence and my true nature is Pure Love.

Since this Source also emanates in, as and through everyone I meet, in every encounter, my choices and actions are befitting a rendezvous with the Divine. I see through the eyes of Divine Love, and I respond with love. I choose to make the most positive possible interpretation of other people’s behavior and they feel the kindness and compassion emanating from me. Only love flows forth from me and only love returns to me, creating life experiences that are a delightful reflection of the Consciousness of God. I feel both reverence and excitement for the opportunity to grow and expand in my capacity to be a pure, hollow vessel through which love pours Itself fully.

With great awe and gratitude for the beautiful colour, texture and richness that is reflected in my journey as I awaken more fully to the Divine Presence, I relax and allow Spirit to play in my life. And it is done most magnificently!

— Rev Pat Brideaux

One - One Presence - One Power - One Infinite Being and Self Existent Cause

Ernest Holmes. Discover a Richer Life, Complied and Edited by Willis Kinnear (2010) Penguin Group, p.55.

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be. — Abraham Lincoln

One – One Presence – One Power – One Infinite Being and Self Existent Cause – One Source of all life and all true happiness. This Divine Presence flows generously and freely through all of Its creation, uplifting, sustaining and nurturing the highest possibility for all. I am already One with this Infinite, Unlimited Possibility and I allow my conscious awareness of It to expand ever outward embracing all of life.

I intend to be happy. I choose to be happy. My happiness is a natural response to knowing that God is the only creative power in my life and that everything that occurs is orchestrated exquisitely by a Power and Presence of Pure Love for the highest good of all and my greatest experience of Joy and Authentic Empowerment. I feel delight bubble up within me as I remember that I am already a beloved emanation of the Divine and that there is nothing that I need to do to be completely worthy of being supported and cherished. My life unfolds with ease and grace and my capacity to delight in the journey and dance with the Divine continues to expand in amazing ways.

I surrender these ideas into the Law, knowing that they are made manifest through Divine right action and that I easily accept and receive with heartfelt gratitude for the magnificence that unfolds. And so it is.

— Rev. Pat Brideaux

The Stream of Life that runs through all of creation pours itself into all aspects of my being.

“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day,
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measure.” — Rabindranath Tagore

The Stream of Life that runs through all of creation pours itself into all aspects of my being. I am solely derived of, immersed in and saturated with that which delights in experiencing and expressing through and by means of me.

The Life Stream constantly and consistently renews, relaxes, revitalizes, and regenerates all aspects of my being. I live in a state of Divine well-being…a picture of absolute health, wellness flexibility and vitality, experiencing comfort in body, mind and total life experience. I dance with delight as I function at optimum efficiency now. I am blessed with a beautiful body and a beautiful mind both are infused with the healing light and love of the I Am. The stream of life that created all that is freely runs through and by means of me…I feel it, sense it, know it intimately and I remember it. I dance to It’s delightful melody embracing and embodying all of the peaceful qualities of the I Am in my own life. I live in absolute rhythmic harmony with the heartbeat of the Universe, I am in tune with the concert of all of creation…I am at peace.

I am so truly grateful to embody my own perfection as I release this with a grateful faith-filled and open heart. It is so and so it is.

— Audrey-May Colwell

As I relax into this moment I open my mind and heart to the divine presence within me knowing there is only one.

“It’s not about getting out of the way it’s about getting into the flow.” Victoria Castle

As I relax into this moment I open my mind and heart to the divine presence within me knowing there is only one. I breathe deeply into this one presence and feel my whole body relax as I step into the flow of all life. I know I am one with this presence and I feel its loving embrace as I go about my day. I am one with all life, with the plants and trees with the animals and birds and with each and every person I meet. My life is filled to overflowing with love as my relationships with my family and friends are loving and supportive. I attract only the right and perfect people to my life as I set my intention to fill my life with love and harmony. I know I am always in the right place at the right time with the right people. My life is filed with joy as I spend my time with loving friends and family. My body is filled with love therefore it moves with ease and grace. Every cell, organ bone and system is healthy and fills me with vitality. I see abundance everywhere and therefore I know it is present in my life and I always have enough to spare and to share. I appreciate and I am filled with gratitude for all that is present in my life, for my health, my wealth, my relationships and my magnificence as I stand in my power and show the world who I really am. With loving gratitude for all that I am and for all I am yet to become I release my words into the law of mind knowing they are already so. And so it is.

Vicki Packard
Vicki Pickard


Making the decision to become a practitioner was one of the best decisions of my life, aside from marrying my soulmate 12 years ago.  I have always been a bit of ‘spiritual mutt’, as my background was the United Church, and truly I can still feel called at times to my Christian roots.  I have explored various spiritual practices, and find this philosophy fits best for me — as I really do believe our thoughts do impact our reality.  Twenty-five years ago, I made a significant career change &#8212 choosing to become a registered nurse.  That decision has taken me on an interesting journey, and my current practice is in mental health.  I am grateful to have a wonderful husband, fantastic children, stepchildren, and grandchildren.  My journey has had challenges &#8212 and I have always known and felt my connection with Spirit.  It is a privilege to be a practitioner at CSL, Metro.

Joy Sinclair


Joy brings to this teaching an understanding of the traditional practises of her Aboriginal community, and the interconnectedness of all life. She celebrates the blending of her traditional spiritual knowledge and practises with the life changing “New Thought” teachings of Ernest Holmes. She finds the words of Ernest Holmes echoes the teachings of the Elders, and that they meet on the common ground of shared beliefs and values of life’s meaning and purpose; self-worth, respect, integrity, authenticity, compassion and empathy. Joy happily offers spiritual care to individuals interested in receiving support during times of celebration and change. In support of daily spiritual practise, she offers prayer treatment service, weekly meditation support and when called, being present in community during life honouring’s. She willingly shares her intimate involvement with the natural world and traditional spiritual practises and knows for each of us, the importance of holding true to being in relationship with a higher and greater, more transcendent reality, as a living Spirit. Living a profoundly healing spiritual life is the focus of Joy’s spiritual journey as a Practitioner.
