What is Affirmative Prayer Treatment and how does it affect me?

 (from How to Speak Science of Mind by Dennis Merritt Jones, DD)

"In Science of Mind®, a "Treatment" (also know as a Spiritual Mind Treatment) is simply an affirmative prayer stated in a systematic manner (or formula). It usually has five steps that guide you or the person performing the treatment through a logical flow of statements that reinforce our unity with God. An example of a simplified Treatment might be:

uses a five-step affirmative prayer called spiritual mind treatment. The five steps are:

1. Recognition— I know that God is All there is.
2. Unification— I know I am one with God, in Spirit, Mind and Body.
3. Declaration— I know that the good I seek already exists in the mind of God.
4. Thanksgiving— Knowing I am one with God and that the gift has already been made, I claim and accept my good, giving great thanks for it.
5. Release— I now release this prayer unto the Universe, knowing it is done, as I believ. I let go and let God. And so it is. Amen.

"A Spiritual Mind Treatment does not cause change to any physical conditions initially. It does however change the consciousness of the one being treated. BEcause we all exist in the one mind of God, what is known as the truth in the consciousness of the one doing the trement, elevates an awareness in the experience of the one being treated."

There is no beseeching to or urge to compel an outside entity in spiritual mind treatment.  As founder Ernest Holmes states:

Effective mental treatment is propelled by a consciousness of love and a realization that the Creative spirit is always at work....A treatment should be given in a calm, expectant manner and with a deep inner conviction of its reality, without any fear or any sense that the human mind must make it effective. The work is effective because the Law is always in operation.
