Visualize a ray of the infinite light flowing into you from behind, through your medulla oblongata (at the base of the brain). Let it flow into your body and activate everything you do and say.

God, remember, is in all things the real Doer. Meditating on this thought will help you to realize its truth. Feel the divine ray flowing into and through your body. Concentrate especially on the forward flow of that energy to the point of superconscious awareness between the eyebrows. Then imagine it flowing out to the world through the spiritual eye, blessings others, blessing your surroundings, blessing the whole world.

Then affirm deeply: “Thou, Lord, art the Doer. Energize, and, through energy, magnetize everything that I say and do.”
