As such, it is my great pleasure to offer spiritual methods to individuals who wish to make positive changes in their lives. I make my articles available through social media, the web, and various spiritual publications. I focus my research on spiritual methods for overcoming the myriad challenges life throws at us on a daily basis. In addition, I facilitate workshops and lecture at various spiritual.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Principles Underlying Your Spiritual Practice?

My practice is based on the principles of New Thought which the unity of all life. Intentions and ideas flow through a field of consciousness, which actually affects and creates the world around us. This idea is common to most major religions and is supported by the teachings of psychology and quantum physics. The secret to living a successful life is to consciously choose positive and productive thoughts. Put another way, “As you think, so you become.”

What is Affirmative Prayer?

Affirmative Prayer is based on a Spiritual Law that states what a person truly believes in their conscious and subconscious minds (not what they wish for or imagine) is what is made manifest in their daily lives. These conditions can be good or bad in nature, which is insignificant in the application of the Law – simply because thoughts combined with strongly held beliefs and feelings become things. If someone wishes to change their circumstances, then they must change their position in, and use of, this Law. A Practitioner is trained to uncover false beliefs and replace them with spiritual truths of a positive, loving, and true nature. Affirmative Prayer and its benefits are available to everyone at all times.

The change of consciousness occurs within a person’s mind, not without – although the changes are demonstrated outwardly after the inner consciousness has been changed. Affirmative Prayer is not praying to or begging a man, a deity, or God to grant favor.

What else can you tell me about Licensed Practitioners?

A Licensed Practitioner is a fiercely loving and accepting person who has dedicated himself or herself to a life of spiritual service. We are bound by a high code of ethics to be truthful, loving, and respectful of a client’s privacy. We seek to demonstrate the power of spiritual realization in everyday affairs and we believe in Divine Guidance. Practitioners can be found holding vigil and providing prayer during and after service at hundreds of Centers for Spiritual Living celebrations around the world.
