Scripture, Denial and Affirmation Read – Luke 4:1-13 Scripture : “Beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Spirit (Jude 1:20).” Denial : “I will not tear myself down.” Affirmation : “I consciously choose to build my self-image, self esteem, and self-worth.” Building consciousness through scripture, denials, and affirmations  is a daily spiritual practice that develops your soul (mind, emotions,  intellect, will) over time. Scripture is the Timeless Truth that has been spoken, recorded, written, and translated over time. Denials  renounce that which you do not desire. They do not deny the  existence of external factors, but they deny their power over you (I  John 4:4). Affirmations are the individualization of the truth. It is  powerfully speaking the good desires of your heart. Jesus’ experience in the wilderness is a perfect example of the use  of scripture, denials, and affirmations. Each time his lower level of  consciousness, his devil, presented

How To Build Consciousness

 How to Build Consciousness  Read – Psalm 139:7-12  Scripture: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence (Psalm 139:7)?”  Denial: “I cannot hide from God. I cannot run from myself.”  Affirmation: “I AM responsible for my own consciousness.”  According to Charles Fillmore, the cofounder of the Unity Movement, “God is the everywhere evenly present, Spirit of Absolute Good.” Consciousness is our awareness of God. There are three different types of consciousness: individual, corporate, and collective. The individual consciousness is our individual awareness of God. The corporate consciousness is a group’s awareness of God (family, community, local assembly, business, school, city, state, country). The collective consciousness is the combined God awareness of every individual and group on the earth. As an individual at any given moment, we can speak from the super consciousness, the sense consciousness, or the subconsciousness. The super-consciousness
 My Words Have Power! Read – Matthew 12:31-37 Denial: “I release and let go of negative words.” Scripture: “Like the rain falling down from heaven, so will my word flow from my mouth: it will not return to me void, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper and fulfill the purpose for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).” Affirmation: “What I say about me is more powerful than what  anyone else says about me.”  There is power in the spoken word. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21).” Just as I AM that I AM created the heavens and the earth through words, we as I AMs in the earth create our world through our words. “By faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God (Hebrews 11:3).” As creators, if we are not satisfied with the harvest that our words have produced, then we have the power to change our words and create something different. When we speak, we enter the spiritual realm
My Body Scripture: “That which is born of flesh is flesh and that which is  born of spirit is spirit (John 3:6).”  Denial: “My body is not limited to that which is from the crown of  my head to the soles my feet.”  Affirmation: “My body is anything that manifests in the physical  realm.”  “ Read – John 3:1-8 I remember as a young child learning my body parts and singing songs about my body. As a single dad, I stayed home with my twin daughters for the first two years of their lives until they were able to name their body parts. I used the same songs that I learned as a child to teach them about their bodies. One was “Head and shoulders, knees and toes.” Another one that stands out is the Hokey Pokey. You put your left-  in. You take your left-hand out. You put your right-hand in, and you shake it all about. You do the hokey pokey, and you turn yourself  around. That's what it's all about...hokey pokey.” In middle school, I learned even more about my
Soul’s Unfoldment Read – Isaiah 53:1-12 Scripture: “ And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, here am I; send me (Isaiah 6:8).” Denial : “I do not compare my soul’s journey to anyone else’s journey.” Affirmation : “I believe in the Kingdom Principles.” One of the popular phrases in the Kingdom Vernacular is “everyone is doing what they need to do for their soul’s unfoldment.” This helps us to realize that each person is on a unique love journey and wholeness path. The events and experiences of their lives are for their soul’s unf oldment. The soul ’s unfoldment is the process of becoming, healing, growing, and developing so the Divine Purpose can be fulfilled. There is a Divine Purpose for each of our l
 Identity Read – John 4:4-26 Scripture: “God is Spirit and they that worship God must worship  God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).” Denial: “Nothing can separate me from God.”  Affirmation: “I AM a spiritual being.” Talking to the Woman at the Well, Jesus gave a very vivid one-word  description of God, the I AM that I AM, by saying, “God is Spirit.”  Distinguishing God from human beings who are both human and  divine, Jesus, the Christ, identifies God as Spirit, completely divine.  Spirit does not have flesh and bones (I Corinthians 15:50). Spirit  transcends time and space. Human beings are spiritual beings. Our  humanity comes from Mother Earth. God formed humanity from the  dust of the earth (Genesis 2:7). Our spirituality comes from the  breath of life that God breathed into our nostrils (Ezekiel 37:10,  James 2:26). God is a threefold being. Father, Son, Holy Spirit or Mind, Idea and  Expression. Humanity which is made in the image and likeness of  God are spirit, soul, and bo
                                                          Co-Creators with God Read – Genesis 1:1-31 Denial: “No one else can create my experiences.” Scripture: “Through faith we understand that the heavens and the earth were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear (Hebrews 11:3).” Affirmation: “I AM co-creating with God the life that I desire and deserve.”  After creating the heavens and the earth in mind, God began to speak those things that God saw in the “mind’s eye” into existence. God did not just aimlessly speak those creative words, “Let there be...” but God believed with full assurance in the words that God was speaking (Genesis 1:3). God demonstrated faith when God spoke the words, “Let there be light.” God knew that the mental concept of light was going to become a reality. God trusted the light to move from the invisible place of mind to the physical plane of the earth. Just as God framed the heavens and the earth thr
