"No matter what the affliction, Love's the prescription."
The word treatment is usually applied to a prayer that is made for some specific purpose, as distinct from a general prayer, which is really a visit with God. You must remember that a treatment is a definite practical action, having a definite object and a definite beginning and end. It is in fact a surgical operation on the soul.
Let us suppose that you decide to heal a certain difficulty by prayer. You know that your difficulty must be caused by some negative thought charged with fear and located in the subconscious mind. You therefore turn to God, and remind yourself of His goodness, His limitless power, and His care for you. As you work the fear will begin to dissolve, and the awareness of the Truth corrects the erroneous beliefs themselves.
Thank God for the healing that you believe will come--and then you keep your thought off the matter until you feel led, after an interval, to treat again.
He send his word, and healed them... (Psalm 107:20) –Around the Year With Emmet Fox, October 16
WHAT IS "SEEKING THE KINGDOM?"
Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).
The principle that Jesus expressed in these words is the basic law that underlies all answer to prayer. Many people know that in theory but are confused about putting it into practice. They think. "I will ignore this problem and think about God instead." Here there is a subtle mistake; because they are really thinking of their problem as existing in one place, of God as existing in another, and of themselves as going in thought from the first place to the second place. This, of course, is by implication to reaffirm the existence of the problem in its own place, and such a belief will not heal.
What we have to do is to seek the Kingdom in the very place where the trouble seems to be. We have to know that in Truth and reality it is not there, because God is there. When we succeed in doing this, the difficulty disappears. –Around the Year With Emmet Fox, October 17
MENTAL DRUDGERY IS NOT PRAYER
Expect more from your prayers. The power of your prayer depends upon the amount of faith that you yourself have in it. To pray in the spirit that "even if this prayer does not do any good at least it cannot do any harm," is not, really, to pray at all.
Have enough faith in the love of God to believe that a short heartfelt prayer is just as good as a long one. To long a session of prayer usually means that in your heart you really doubt the love of God, and think that a great deal of effort and toil will be necessary to move Him. Pray quietyl and sincerely for a reasonable time--and then leave the matter, expecting success.
O Lord, thou art my God: I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things: thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth (Isiah 25:1) –Around the Year With Emmet Fox, October 18
If you want health, then claim everyday that God is your health, that Divine Life brings well-being to every part of your body. If you want prosperity, claim everyday that God is your prosperity & the giver of every good gift. If you want peace & harmony, claim everyday that God brings you peace & all things work for good to them that love God. Whatever it is you wish to bring into your life, stake your claim to it. –Emmet Fox, Stake Your Claim
In treating, we must TURN ENTIRELY AWAY FROM THE CONDITION. Disease and limitation are neither person, place, or thing. Turn entirely from the condition, or limited situation, to its opposite, to the realization of health, happiness, and harmony. Spiritual treatment starts with Perfect God, Perfect Man, and Perfect Being, which statement consciously removes any belief which denies such manifestation. –Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind
You need to know God as health and health as normal. You have to decide that you are going to be well. Once you make that decision and really mean it, the spiritual forces in your mind and body go to work. Health is a yes system and disease is a no system. Life responds to affirmative thinking. It flows where the channels are open, and affirmative thinking opens the channels. Life created you out of Itself that you might enjoy the experience of living in health and well-being. –Raymond Charles Barker, The Power of Decision

I ATTUNE TO WHOLENESS AND EXPRESS PERFECT HEALTH.
Guided by Spirit, I make healthy choices when it comes to eating and exercise. I care for myself with regular visits to medical professionals. I am mindful of my speech and refrain from any discouraging self-talk. I align every part of my being with Truth principles. As I do so, healing at all levels is not merely likely but inevitable. I am one with God—healed, whole, and healthy.
I will take sickness away from among you.—Exodus 23:25

I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your kindred friend Mrs. Lancaster. It is through Gods Grace that we are blessed with people like her when we need them the most. Gods timing is just impeccable I have to say.
I received your books, thank you so much. I'm even more excited to be running the Dublin Marathon now that I have a reason Way Bigger then myself.....to finish!!! You should be receiving my creative gesture in payment for my book, today or tomorrow at the latest.
I have to share the Funniest Thing with you. I have been a runner for most of my life but not a huge marathon runner. Dublin will be my second. However, my first marathon was NYC in 1996!!! Imagine that!!
Thank you again Darrell for sharing your vibrant Joy, and Jubilant Spirit with me.
May God's Live and Light shine brightly on your day today!!! Ed too!!!

Hello Darrell and Ed,
My name is Cheri Knight and i am a big fan of your wonderful show. Since I started listening i have also gotten my husband and daughter listening. I look forward to hearing each new episode and have gone back and listened to most of your past shows. You guys are great and I love your message. Thank you for what you do. We live in Louisville Kentucky but are currently visiting our son and daughter in law in Santa Monica. Just wondering since we are close by if there was any way we could meet up with you guys and maybe have coffee or something. I understand you have busy lives but just could not be this close by and not reach out. Looking forward to your next episode. So grateful to have found you on Unity online radio.
Thanks for your continued inspiration.
It was so nice talking with you and really looking forward to meeting up with you and Darrell. You ask about my family. My husband is Mike, our son is Bryce and his wife is Rubie. Our daughter who lives in Nashville, Tennessee is Rachel. Last but not least our 13 year old well loved Yorkie is Riley.
We love you Darrell and Ed!

I'm taking a pause in my day to send you this story as a prayer of gratitude :) So many funniest thing moments happen all the time as a result of applying the practices the light and real way you share them but I am overdue on sharing with you and a THANKS!
I've attached a picture that I normally wouldn't share (bc yikes!) to illustrate how GRUMPY I was this morning getting my passport/visa photo taken. I woke up late and tired and was stressing to get this pic and head to the Chinese consulate in SF for my visa. I had so much fear around being late, it taking too long and the invested fears of 'what if I don't have the right things, what if they don't like me, what if there's some weird rule I don't know?!' (all the while knowing that thoughts like that don't help)
I popped on an archived show of yours on my commute because I knew I would create hell if I kept thinking that way. You brightened my day, helped me see things differently and be brave to stick with the positive thoughts. Boy did it help!
I got to the consulate (think chaotic DMV but everyone is speaking Chinese), took a number and sat on the floor to fill out my application, not really understanding the process. I was number 176 and they were on number 50, but I was still grateful to be there and my hopes were high. A man walked up and gave me his number 87! (AT LEAST an hour time saver!). I got in line (now that I qualified) and the guard came up to (only) me, asking what my number was. He moved me UP the line to the proper place for #87, saving me even more time!
I'd love your support in sending prayers to those two wonderful angels who supported me today. I am grateful that I realigned my thoughts to even attract support like that!
Thank you again for all that you do and share! Oh, and I just finished your 18 day meditation and it has helped SO much! I often think 'ooo, I sense chaos here that I think I can't control BUT I can. I choose peace here'
Lots of love!

I TYPE IN CAPS CAUSE IT'S EASIER. I'M A LAZY TYPIST AND MY HANDS AREN'T SO GREAT. SO, I'M NOT YELLING AT YOU.
READ YOUR ARTICLE ON THE GOD BOX AND THOUGHT LORI AND YOU WOULD FIND THIS INTERESTING. ABOUT 27 YEARS AGO I WAS TIRED OF DATING, HAD STOPPED IT ENTIRELY. JUST COULDN'T STAND THE HASSLE ANYMORE. SO ONE NIGHT IN BED, AFTER SAYING MY PRAYERS, I SPOKE TO THE MAN UPSTAIRS, ASKING HIM TO TAKE CARE OF THIS FOR ME. I ASKED FOR JUST A DECENT, LOVING, CARING MAN TO COME MY WAY. I ALSO TOLD HIM IF I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO GET ONE THAT WAS FINE TOO. I CLOSED BY SAYING I WAS GIVING IT UP TO HIM AND WAS DONE THINKING ABOUT IT ANYMORE. AND I REALLY DID FORGET ABOUT IT. ABOUT A MONTH LATER HE BROUGHT NICK INTO MY LIFE!
I WAS TELLING THIS STORY TO A FRIEND WHO I KNEW WOULD TRY THIS AND SHE DID. IT ONLY TOOK 3 WEEKS. SHE'S VERY HAPPILY MARRIED!
JUST THOUGHT YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON, AND WORKING WELL, FOR MORE YEARS THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. THE TRICK IS TO GENUINELY GIVE IT TO HIM AND NEVER THINK ABOUT IT AGAIN. HE WILL DO WHAT'S BEST FOR US!
HOPE ALL IS WELL. SEEMS LIKE YOU TWO ARE VERY HAPPY, WHICH MAKES ME VERY HAPPY!

Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM
for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, 'Please wake me at 5:00 AM.' He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM.. Wake up.'
