I am blessed as a Son of God.

1. 1Today we will begin to assert some of the happy things to which you are entitled, being what you are. 2No long practice periods are required today, but very frequent short ones are nec­essary. 3Once every ten minutes would be highly desirable, and you are urged to attempt this schedule and to adhere to it when­ever possible. 4If you forget, try again. 5If there are long interruptions, try again. 6Whenever you remember, try again.

2. 1You need not close your eyes for the exercise periods, although you will probably find it more helpful if you do. 2However, you may be in a number of situations during the day when closing your eyes would not be feasible. 3Do not miss a practice period because of this. 4You can practice quite well under any circumstances, if you really want to.

3. 1Today’s exercises take little time and no effort. 2Repeat the idea for today, and then add several of the attributes you associate with being a Son of God, applying them to yourself. 3One prac­tice period might, for example, consist of the following:

4I am blessed as a Son of God.
5I am happy, peaceful, loving and contented.

6Another might take this form:

7I am blessed as a Son of God.
8I am calm, quiet, assured and confident.

9If only a brief period is available, merely telling yourself that you are blessed as a Son of God will do.
