Kim O’Connor. M.Div.
In Science of Mind when we are learning spiritual principle, and specifically the form of prayer that we use here- spiritual mind treatment we immediately learn to turn from the appearance to the Truth. My goal is to live in a constant state of surrender although I admit and accept that this is not meant to be the human condition 100% of the time. I believe every challenge is an opportunity to heal, and it is with this mindset that I approach working with my clients.
Gratitude is rarely our default position, yet it is one of the most important things in life- because gratitude brings with it a heightened sense of joy and wonder, feeding our sense of purpose.
I have found that when we feed our sense of purpose; we enter into a silent collaboration with the Divine, opening the proverbial door to limitless opportunity and transformation.
I believe that thoughts become things and that I create my reality. I take full responsibility for all of it. It is a beautiful life when I walk with the inner knowing that I am perfectly aligned with Spirit, and when I forget that truth, I have a strong support system around me that remind me, if need be, that it is still a beautiful life. This is my intention for my clients.
In Science of Mind when we are learning spiritual principles and the method of spiritual mind treatment we immediately learn to turn from the appearance to the Truth.
I am referring to the practice of the use of “God Qualities.”
We look at what we want to release (in this case addiction)
Look at its polar opposite (or God Quality)
Begin to affirm the God Quality (in this case, Omnipresence) in thought, word and action,
Recognizing the Spiritual Truth-which is that Omnipresence (Source) is already, always has been, always will be, inherent within us.
We don’t affirm this once or twice, but again and again and again. Creating a shift in the subconscious mind which will lead to the new pattern of thought, which in this case is, God and I are One.
In this way, we begin to replace the sense of dependence on the substance which is outside of ourselves and instead begin to rely on Source, which is within- right at the center of our being.
A Metaphysical Interpretation:
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”Bible, Matthew 6:24
“No one can stand in both the light and the darkness, for either he will stand in the darkness and cannot see or he will stand in the light and see clearly.
But I say to you, he who stands in the dark may not know he is lost, because he cannot see. So, do not decide for yourself where to stand. For you may think you stand on the path of righteous (right thinking) when your feet are surely lost.” Bible
Ask for the Light and let it lead you without questioning where it takes you.
“Remember that until you see all the world within the Light, you may be lost, letting the darkness lead your way.”—The Holy Spirit’s Interpretation of the New Testament- A Course in Understanding and Acceptance, Foundation for the Holy Spirit.
I hear your voice, I see your beauty and I am so grateful for this time spent together.
My Ministry’s focus is Recovery from Addictions, the focus being not on one specific addiction, such as alcoholism, but on ALL addictions.
This is because I believe ALL addictions while different, stem from the same cause, which is a sense of separation from Source.
There is a saying that is attributed to Aristotle which I absolutely love and the saying is, “Nature abhors a vacuum.”
When this premise is applied in the life of an addict, healing does indeed occur, demonstrating beyond anything we could ever imagine, as Spirit is wont to do.
