- The First Step is called
Recognition. It is the
acknowledgement of Spirit, God,
It, or Universal Mind.
- Second is Unification.
It is the recognition that you
are an expression of this Spirit
or Infinite Intelligence.
- Third Step is Realization
or Declaration. It is the
- Fourth step is Denial.
It is the denial that anything
can oppose your affirmation.
- Fifth Step is
Reaffirmation. You reaffirm
the expectations of your prayer.
- The Sixth Step is Thanks
or Gratitude. You give
thanks for your knowing, for
understanding of your
relationship to Spirit, which is
Love. This to me is the biggie.
If we are always in gratitude,
all else is provided.
- Seventh Step is Release.
We release the treatment to the
universe, to God, to do its
with Steps listed

Below are phrases from “Creative
Thought Magazine” to help us form a
prayer or affirmation using terms
and ideas consistent with those used
by participants in Religious Science
and meta-physics. They may be of
help to you in forming an
affirmation and putting your
thoughts into a cohesive order.
It can sometimes seem difficult
to come up with a comfortable flow
to the affirmative prayer that
you’re making while keeping it
positive, as you would want it to
be. It comes with practice,
- Acknowledge the Infinite
-The One Mind is perfect and
-God is the source of all there
-There is only one God, One
Light that shines on all things
-God, the only Power and
Presence in my life
-I acknowledge the Divine
Source, and Universal Energy
-With the Unchangeable One as my
only Source, I build my world
- You: As an expression of
- Spirit acting thru me as me is
perfect in form and essence
- As and individualization of
God (this affirmation) is mine
by divine inheritance
-I am God’s Light in my world
-My true nature, being God (or
an individualization of God) is
to give to the world
-I lift up m consciousness to
bless the Divine Source that
supplies my world infinitely
-I am Its (God’s) individualized
expression. The Divine and I are
- The Affirmation: you
declare or claim (whatever
you’re affirming) for self
Health, money, goodness,
relationship, work, abundance:
those things you want
realistically for yourself or
others now or for the future.
(Not to be confused with asking
to be a rocket scientist without
getting the education
first, i.e., unrealistic goals)
-I am the conduit for that which
I am seeking
- Release the Negative
-I release any old patterns or
behaviors that no longer serve
-by rejecting any negative
patterns in consciousness
-No person, place or thing can
limit my (experience)
-I release fear and doubt
- I change my thinking to change
- Reaffirm your beliefs
- Give Thanks (with
truth, harmony, joy, happiness,
-by acknowledging your oneness
-by accepting God’s gifts into
-welcoming this good into your
-I am thankful for my life as it
is now ( and will be)
-I celebrate the truth of my
being; my spirit soars with love
- Release your prayer by
-by allowing it to unfold in my
-accepting the gifts of Spirit
-I know when I release my word,
it is done.
-I release my word with complete
confidence in the Law of Mind
-I am Its timeless expression
-In gratitude I am free to live
a rich, full life right here and
-I create this first in my mind,
align with Universal Law, and
await its manifestation
with cheerful expectancy.
-I release my word, setting my
intention into Law
And, if you like, end your
affirmation affirmatively with:
-And so it is.
Below is an
example of prayer with the steps
Recognition of Spirit:
As I know there is one Divine
Unifying our relationship with
And that I am one with that
Source of all that exists
I know that I am perfect health
Deny the negative or releasing
That there is no thing, no dis-ease,
nothing which can limit my health.
My past is,
just that, my past, and I let it go
Knowing that perfect health is
I give thanks for knowing this
Release of prayer to law:
And release this treatment to the
Laws of the Universe, knowing it is
done, right here and now.
And so it is.
Below is another example of an
affirmative prayer without the steps
Spirit, the One Light and Infinite
source of all things,
So am I as Its light in my world,
I reinforce my right, as an
expression of the One Light, for my
perfect health and spiritual growth.
My daily abundance overflows in
direct proportion to the love I
I release from my path all negative
thought and action,
And give thanks for the knowledge
that my relationship with Spirit
will fill my life with continued
abundance and perfect health.
As I release my word into the Law, I
know that it is already so.
And so it is.
