Affirmative Prayer is a form of prayer that is focused on a positive outcome rather than a negative situation or condition. At the Center for Spiritual Living Greater Pittsburgh, we practice a form of Affirmative Prayer called Spiritual Mind Treatment.
Spiritual Mind Treatment raises our awareness so that we see, feel, and know our oneness with the Divine. The Treatment process reframes the statements in the mind and shifts our consciousness to affirm our true nature and make us open and available to accept the Good that is already present in our life.
For example, a person who is experiencing some form of illness would focus the Affirmative Prayer (or have a Practitioner do it for them) on the desired state of perfect health and affirm this desired intention “as if it has already happened” rather than identifying with the illness and then asking God for help to eliminate it.
A Practitioner is a person licensed through Centers for Spiritual Living who supports individuals in making changes and experiencing healing in their lives and consciousness. Spiritual Mind Treatment is used to accomplish this healing in consciousness.
Practitioners are trained to shift consciousness on behalf of the individual. They have the understanding to recognize one’s unity with Spirit and to declare the spiritual Truth about any condition or situation. Their purpose is to facilitate a deepening awareness of a loving presence and inner peace for all who call upon them for support.
