THE EIGHT STEPS INTO DIVINE MIND CONSCIOUSNESS
1. I SURRENDER
I admit that I cannot manifest my highest good or successfully meet life’s challenges with my intelligence and human efforts alone. I need the help of my Divine Nature.
2. I BELIEVE
I believe that by listening to and following my Divine Nature’s voice of peace, wisdom, and love within me, my Divine Nature significantly raises my consciousness and transforms my life for my highest good.
3. I AM READY TO BE CHANGED
I realize that distress and discontent in my life result when I listen to my ego's false messages of lack, fear and separation--messages based on error thinking, error beliefs and error attitudes. I am ready to have my Divine Nature overrule my ego so I live in peace, wisdom and love.
4. I DECIDE TO BE CHANGED
I make a decision and fully surrender my will and my life to my Divine Nature, allowing It to change me at depth.
5. I FORGIVE
I see the perfection in all my past thoughts and actions, even those I may have seen as mistakes and shortcomings. I also see the perfection, light and innocence in anyone whom I may have thought has harmed me, for I know my True Self, my Divine Nature cannot be harmed in any way.
6. I ASK
Speaking from the voice of my Divine Nature, I now make known my specific requests, asking my Prayer Partners' support in knowing my Divine Nature is responding to my requests in the right and perfect ways and time for my highest good.
7. I GIVE THANKS
I give thanks for all the blessings I have already received, for the blessings I am certain are yet to come, and for the grace and inspiration that I am continually receiving that blesses my life at its very core. I give thanks my Divine Nature is perfectly responding to my requests and I feel this gratitude in every cell and atom of my being knowing that my requests are already fulfilled.
8. I DEDICATE MY LIFE
I now have a covenant in which it is agreed that my Divine Nature is my Source and my consciousness of my Divine Nature is continually supplying me with an abundance of all things necessary to live a successful and happy life. I dedicate myself to be of maximum service to all creation; to live in a manner that sets the highest example for others; and to remain open and responsive to Divine guidance and will. I go forth radiating feelings of enthusiasm, excitement and expectancy. I am at peace.
