Everyone talks to themselves all of the time. We talk to ourselves with silent words, sometimes we verbalize them, sometimes the things we say to ourselves have been said so many times that they have become a feeling, or a mental image like a memory that keeps reoccurring. The longer we think a thought, the more likely it is to have become automatic and the truer it seems. It seems, too, that people tend to speak to themselves in predominantly negative ways; that is, until they wake up to what is going on and retrain themselves to speak kindlier. This class is designed to help you become aware of your affirmations in thought, words, action, and feelings.
No Required Reading.

He was the author of the Ernest Holmes Study Guide in the Science of Mind magazine for many years. He was ordained in May 1996 and graduated as a Sonoma County Law Enforcement Chaplain in April 1999. In 2003, he was awarded an honorary Doctoral Degree in Divinity from Holmes Institute.
