– By Rev. John W. Adams
Emmet Fox, a very enlightened Divine Science minister and author, wrote:
“Your health, and the harmony of your whole life, will depend entirely on the extent to which you identify yourself in thought with your real self, Pneuma. The Bible tells us that God has made man in His own image and likeness, and that is true, but of course it refers to Pneuma. The limited man that we know could not possibly be the image and likeness of God. Pneuma is the child of God and the offspring is always of the same species as the parent. Pneuma is at one with God, that is to say in heaven.”
Where is heaven? Heaven is here, all around us, right where we are. If we are Pneuma and now living in heaven, why do we experience inharmony and sickness? Because we are not aware of our true identity and allow all sorts of erroneous thoughts and feelings to be entertained in our minds. We have a tendency to treat illness as real when it, in truth, only seems real. When we identify with our real self, Pneuma, we know that we are spiritual beings with the same attributes as God, Life, Love, Wisdom, Intelligence, Substance, Perfection.
The golden key to health and wholeness; to healing, is to identify with, claim and affirm our oneness with all that God is while wisely refraining from anything less than the perfection we are as Pneuma.
I have found the following truth statements, which I have declared hundreds of times, to be especially effective. Use them for yourself and you will also.
I am Pneuma, divine spirit, my Real Self. I cannot be sick, hurt or afraid. I am Pneuma, divine spirit, my Real Self. I am birthless, deathless, ageless.
Allow yourself to accept this Truth. Even better, allow yourself to FEEL the joy and reality of it in your mind and body. Do this enough and you will be amazed how much better you feel and how much healthier you are! – Lovingly, Rev. John
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly. – Isaiah 58:8

Wealth Through Giving
-By Rev. Tina Brown
“By the act of giving, you open the way for the things within your reach to appear quickly. These things have been wanting to come to you all the time but were blocked by your lack of giving. There was no free channel through which they could appear. Your giving opens and frees the channel.” – Catherine Ponder
There is the legend of a vagabond who begged for bread at a rich man’s home. The wanderer was given food and a small, wooden chest. The rich man told the beggar that it would provide for his needs for the rest of his life, for it contained the riches of the universe. Although he possessed the chest, the beggar was unable to open it. One day, hungry and disgusted with his life, the man determined that he would no longer look to others for his livelihood. With this thought, the box opened and within it there was bread, water, and one gold coin. Each day thereafter the man looked to the box to provide for him, and he was supplied for seven days. On the eighth day, the box would not open. Over the course of time, the man learned to look to God as his source, and the box opened and supplied his needs for seven years, but then it would not open again. Although the man was curious about the remaining treasures in the box, he was not concerned, for he had discovered his source. Early one evening, he noticed a family before the charred ruins of their house. The wanderer, now a man rich in Spirit, desired to help them, and with this thought the box opened. Inside was a note with this inscription: Give the family the box. Tell them that with its contents they can rebuild not only their house, but their lives.
There are Four Key Ideas that are a Wealth of Knowledge in demonstrating a consciousness of plenty and creating prosperity in one’s life.
- In demonstrating prosperity, we mustn’t be of the consciousness of taking, but instead, be a conscious giver in life. It is a mistake to believe that a prosperity or wealth consciousness is demonstrated by getting that which we desire to manifest. Prosperity is not the new job or bigger and better thing that we have achieved. This is a false perception and merely the manifestation of a “giving consciousness”. Prosperity is manifested through giving. When this Spiritual Law is realized in your consciousness, everything changes: Your perspective, faith and the level of abundance you attract into your life.
- Giving is not dependent upon what you have or do not have. When you are a giver in life, you receive the greatest blessings for you gain an expanded awareness that will provide for your every need.
- Giving opens the door for you to become aware of your Spiritual Nature and your Values. Giving depends upon this spiritual understanding.
- When you give, you gain a consciousness of the principle of giving and receiving, this is the Spiritual Law of Circulation, the principle that provides for your every need.
Some people mistakenly believe that giving is loss, that by giving they have less. When you reach a level of spiritual understanding, you realize that most people have prosperity backwards and you may have done the same. Establishing a life of wealth and abundant good, requires a consciousness of prosperity. Prosperity is giving. When you understand this, you give your attention to giving rather than receiving and in return you always receive more. Give what you want to receive and keep on giving it. (Adapted from: Even Mystics Have Bills to Pay by Jim Rosemergy)
“Always when there seems to be delay, confusion, or a block between you and you’re good, that block lies within you, and not in some outside circumstance or personality. When you give under divine guidance, you dissolve the block and open a channel for your good. Then nothing can stop its manifestation in your life!” – Catherine Ponder
Giving in the right consciousness, ALWAYS brings more than what is given. Spiritual understanding calls for you to put aside your “need” to determine how to receive what you consider to be the blessings of life. Spirit calls you to discover ways to give, because giving is prosperity in demonstration. It is a vital key to living life prosperously. The greater the giving consciousness, the more you receive in all areas of your life. Blessings of God’s Abundant Good, Rev. Tina

Book & Prayers Bring Turnaround! – Since receiving and reading your book, *Power Words for Prosperous Living! so many good things have happened. I took two affirmations from the book, and faithfully used them every day. I am free from the past and from all lack and limitation. I am now surging forward into my life of prosperity and success. I left Boston and drove alone all the way to Phoenix, with no problems. I had a job offer before I left, but it was only for 12 hours per week, so I prayed for more hours and kept using these affirmations. Thankfully, I was asked to work nearly 40 hours per week. I have used the affirmations for several weeks and have gone from feeling very depressed to feeling wonderful! I love my new job and I’m out-of-debt. Thank you for your prayers. Please keep praying with me. I am enclosing my tithe in support of your wonderful ministry. – P. M. in Arizona
