Strengthening Beliefs, Building Backbone
WEEK 16 SUMMARY
Rev. Ike’s Secrets For Health, Joy and Prosperity,
For You: Science Of Living Study Guide
Do you notice how the media keeps us jumping for the next ‘whatever’? Currently the focus is on a perceived gasoline shortage. As the public panics and prepares to get ahead of the gas lines, gas prices escalate, and the perceived shortfall turns into a real thing. What we know as awakened spiritual beings is that there is no scarcity. The universe is abundant and generous. We must learn to discern the Truth behind the appearance, to walk – and drive – in faith, not fear. Notice when you fall prey to false ideas being perpetrated and how it makes you feel. Notice when your energy rises and when it plummets. Most of all, decide what you are going to do about those fluctuations. Bottom line, you are always at choice.
Chapters 33 and 34 continue to build on Rev. Ike’s lessons we have previously studied, and that is just fine with the steady group of 16 or more who continue participating week after week! Why? Because until we are consistently demonstrating these spiritual principles in our personal lives, we realize there is more to know and to do.
This study-practice is neither boring nor laborious, as proved last week when we played bingo using the main points from our reading. ASC, Inc. has always been about having fun with social activities while also learning and growing.
Chapter 33 – FEED YOUR MIND RIGHT IDEAS
Key Spiritual Principle
Your subconscious mind accepts whatever ideas you feed it and brings them into your experience.
You are always feeding on something, either consciously or subconsciously. Junk in . . . junk out! You need mental nutrition, which comes from speaking “good, positive, loving words of health, happiness, love, success, and prosperity.” Rev. Ike reminds us that you can’t eat good food once a month and expect to be healthy . . .
He says, “You must continually and constantly feed your mind only good thoughts, positive thoughts . . . Digest all the positive teachings I give you until they become a part of you.” You are to exercise your mind daily with these techniques. At the end of this chapter he provides specific beneficial techniques and affirmative treatments.
Chapter 34 – FOUR STEPS TO GET WHAT YOU WANT
Key Spiritual Principle
You have within you the Infinite Power of God to bring into existence whatever good you want to be, to do, and to have.
Study and meditate upon each and every step, each and every day.
Step 1 DECIDE . . . VISIONING
Step 2 BELIEVE . . . PRAYING
Step 3 SEE . . . VISUALIZATION
Step 4 FEEL . . . HEART-CENTERED/
FULL SENSORY EMBODIMENT
Each of these steps individually involve a complete process of engagement in order to manifest that which you desire. Rev. Ike provides a detailed discussion of each. When you are ready to commit to the process seriously and consistently, there is nothing you cannot be, do, or have. For more understanding about visualization, refer to Rev. Michael Beckwith’s Youtube video https://youtu.be/7VXPhbc2-LY
Thank you, God-in-me!”
