About the Author
Dr. Ernest Holmes(1887-1960) is known to millions as a great leader and teacher; and to even more as the author of many inspirational books and tapes, such as Creative Mind, This Thing Called Life, and The Science of Mind. A teacher, writer, and lecturer; Dr. Holmes founded the Science of Mind philosophy in 1927, and regularly appeared on television and radio. His signature saying, "There is a power greater than you in the universe, and you can use it," became well known over the years. By taking a clear and simple approach in researching the wisdom of the ages from many disciplines, Ernest Holmes developed a practical, spiritual approach to living an abundant life and created the Science of Mind. Since early 1900's, the Science of Mind Textbook has been the cornerstone to Religious Science churches around the world.

One great concept from this book is that he says there is only ONE treatment. If people treat or affirm and have not got a result, that means they have not completed the treatment. A treatment then can be seen as whatever it takes (1 short session, 1 long session, or several sessions over a few days) to make a demonstration. It is because the mind may hold a past idea that needs to be neutralized, and depending on how strong the past hypnosis was, and how strong the practitioner's current new thought is, this determines how effective the treatment is.
I have learned that at times when i persist with a treatment for say more than 15 minutes, that thought will start to intensify and a feeling of joy and knowing will come to me. It is a feeling of absolute knowing that the demonstration is already done, eventho you may not see it yet. That is what Ernest described as the feeling of certainty one gets.
A must read book for anyone who would like to demonstrate.
What I tell them usually shocks them. I tell them that they are already using this Power. And they look at me with a scowl on their face, "No I'm not. My life is a mess. I'm in a bad relationship. I hate my job. I drive a 1973 AMC Gremlin and I have .73 cents in my 401k..."
And I just smile at them, "Wow. You're really powerful. Look at all these things you created. You're amazing. Why don't you create some more garbage while you're at it..."
What I am trying to tell these people (and you) is that we are always using this thing we call, for lack of a better term, Mind Power. In Truth, all there is, is Mind. What we want to do is to learn how to use this Power consciously and deliberately and this wonderful little book by Ernest Holmes can really cut through a lot of the misconceptions that people have about the Law of Attraction.
It's not about holding thoughts or trying to get this Power to work. It is recognizing that the Law of Mind knows how to create. You don't need to know how, just like you don't need to know how an acorn becomes an oak tree, you just need to know that it works and it works every time.
The thing I really like about Ernest Holmes is that he just throws out these amazing thoughts that almost leave you breathless because they are not only so philosophically sound but they are also quite beautiful. He says,
"One practicing this science (the Law of Attraction) is always endeavoring to conform his thinking to a spiritual ideal. He must train himself to be aware of the Divine Spirit at the center of his life. His arguments, statements, affirmations or denials are arranged to disclose the reality of this Spiritual Presence, to make It real, to feel It. There is a Spiritual logic higher than the intellect. Every person has an intuition about this and unconsciously senses its reality. In practice one consciously guides the intellect to this spiritual perception..."
That just blows me away and that's just one of the many paragraphs that I have underlined four times. Every time I read this book or even look at it briefly before a meditation or before I start my prayerwork, I am blown away by how closely Ernest Holmes listened to Inner Self...his Higher Self...his God Self.
I believe that the Law of Attraction is not to just be used for material things, but for a deeper understanding that we are Spiritual Beings now. It's one thing to manifest an unexpected $100 or get a new car, but it's quite another thing to know that you are an inlet as well as an outlet to all there is in God. And once you know that, feel that, be that you will always attract abundant situations and experiences because you will no longer be praying for abundance, YOU WILL BE ABUNDANCE, which, by the way, is who you already are on a Spiritual Level of things.
This book reminds us that we are never praying to God to change as much as we are praying to change our own minds about who and what we truly are.
We really don't need anything. I know you are saying, "But...but...but..." and believe me, I, too, have at times, a serious case of the "big buts", but when I really am clear and aligned with my Source (God) I can fully appreciate and understand what Jesus meant when he said, "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all things will be added unto you..."
Not a Kingdom that's in the afterlife, but a Kingdom that is within you now...that place within you that knows Its Eternal Nature now and isn't now the accepted time to live an abundant and joyful life in EVERY aspect of your being?
This is a book full of great reminders that Life is good and the only thing that stands in our way is our thought about it and what thought has done, thought can undo. You have the Power now to change because you are the Power made beautifully manifest.
Peace and Blessings,

My first taste of the truth or "Good Orderly Direction" came from Emett
fox. Ernest Holmes is his apparent mentor. Knowledge always comes to the seeker and Holmes is simplicity at its best. A simple and direct map to the right road to follow. Ask and you shall recieve.
If you have read Holmes in the past, I highly recommend this book for your collection. IMO, it's a must have. :)
