Problem-Solving Affirmations - Think on the Answer, Not on the Problem!

— by Rev. Ike





The reason why we have problems is because we've meditated too much on the problem rather than the answer. Now as long as you give your attention to your problem, you're going to have your problem.

Get In An Answer State of Mind!

You've got to learn how to be spiritually indifferent toward a problem and get in an answer state of mind.

All of you, who are interested in the answer, just say this affirmation out loud now:

I am interested in the answer.

I now practice spiritual indifference toward the problem.

And I accept the answer.

And that's what you'll have to do.

What is Spiritual Indifference?

Give up thinking about the problem, and give all of your attention to the idea of the answer.

You — the conscious mind, the intellect — may not know exactly in what form that answer may come. But just entertain the idea of the answer.

And the problem, just like an old dog that doesn't get attention, will go off and not come back.

Just like an old dog that hangs around the back porch, so that you'd throw him a bone every once in awhile. If you didn't throw old Rover a bone kind of regularly, he'd go on off somewhere else where somebody else would throw him a bone.

Are You Holding on
Tight to Your Problem?

So it is with your problem. And some of you, you not only throw your problems bones, you throw them steaks and filet mignon. You give your problem all of your attention.

And it's no use to pray and ask God to take it away, because some of you, even when you ask God to take it away, you're holding on tight!

You've still got your problem. It still won't go because you're holding on to it.

And you see, that's the Law of Mind. Whatever you pay attention to, whatever you are fascinated by — that's what you get! That's what some call the law of attraction!

Your prayers have to be in harmony with the Law of Mind. You see, some religious people don't understand that. They haven't been taught about the Law of Mind.

Attention is Destiny

Know this, the Cosmic Law of Mind cannot be changed. "As a man thinks, so is he."

If a man thinks problems, a man is going to have problems.

I don't care how you pray. If you stay in a problem state, you're going to have problems, and the only way that you're going to get an answer is to get in an answer state of mind.

So let's do that now. If you have some situation in life that you want solved, simply open your mind now to the answer.

Open your hands, open your arms and say out loud and with feeling:

"I open my heart and mind to the answer now."

And just begin to think on the answer. Visualize the answer happening. Imagine that your problem is already solved. Picture it in your mind and feel the feelings of relief and joy that your problem is already solved.

Stop Thinking and
Talking About Your Problems

Open your heart, open your mind, open your ears, and open your eyes to the answer. And if you still have a problem, you know you have some more opening of the ears and eyes to do.

And if you'll open your mind to the answer now and identify yourself with the answer now, and not with the problem, whatever answer you need, will just happen.

The reason why we have problems is because we've just meditated so much on the problem rather than the answer.

Now affirm the following
out loud and with feeling:

I am interested in the answer.

I now practice spiritual indifference toward the problem.

I open my heart and mind to the perfect answer.

Right now perfect answers are happening in my life concerning everyone and everything.

I see the answer.

I feel the answer.

And I accept the answer.

Thank you, Father.

I rejoice because of it.

All right. Now that's the end of problems. Don't talk any more about your problems. Think on the answer!
