Considered by many to be one of the fathers of modern Metaphysics, Ernest Holmes, best known for his seminal text, The Science of Mind, is gaining in popularity with a new generation of mystics and metaphysicians. Creative Mind, originally published in 1919, is a foundational text upon which popular modern Law of Attraction books and films like The Secret and the texts of Esther and Jerry Hicks have been built. Grounded in spirituality, not materialism, Holmes has profoundly impacted thousands of individuals on the path of spiritual evolution, focused on manifesting their own life experiences.
In the beginning, there was Spirit (or God), and all of life as we know it today was created through Spirit. We are spiritual beings, created from Spirit, endowed with the same creative abilities and impulses to manifest our own experiences. How this process works, explains Holmes, is not important. What is important is to understand that the thoughts and feelings about what you want will attract back to you inspiration, experiences, and people who will bring about the physical manifestation of those thoughts.
Holmes encourages everyone to take responsibility for their own lives, to acknowledge and accept that you are part of the one Infinite Mind of God, and understand that we are all dealing with only one power. That power works to attract to us what we think about, both those things we want and the experiences that we do not want. Therefore, he suggests, why give any thought or energy whatsoever to those things we do not want? We are unlimited in our power to create. Yet so many live in fear and suffering because they have forgotten that they are Divine in nature, denying they are part of the one Creative Mind.
Holmes explains that through our own thoughts, we enter into the realm of Universal Consciousness and the realization of truth and love. So many have learned to live their lives based on what others think and expect. This exterior control of life must be transformed through spiritual evolution to a life lived in complete confidence that the Universe will respond with what is truly wanted in life. Therefore, one must guard carefully against allowing negative thoughts or feelings of lack or fear into one's experience, for the Universe has no other choice but to reflect back in physical manifestation those thoughts.
Affirmations are powerful tools in the healing of ourselves and others, according to Holmes. Anyone who wishes to conduct healing treatments must first focus on healing himself. Whether focusing on emotional or physical healing or seeking financial and spiritual prosperity and abundance, one must take the time consider thoughts as seeds, planted in the Divine Mind of universality and left to grow into physical manifestation.
Whereas many modern teachings on the Law of Attraction have focused on materialism, attracting money and possessions, Holmes's teachings are based in spirituality and love, helping others and being kind, and experiencing the prosperity (material and otherwise) as the natural byproduct of living an authentic, Divine life. Creative Mind is truly an inspiring work of modern New Thought and Metaphysics.
