Saint Germain, Volume III Discourse I:
When you say, and feel "I AM," you release the spring of Eternal, Everlasting Life, to flow on Its way unmolested. In other words, you open wide the door to Its natural flow. When you say "I AM not," you shut the door in the face of this Mighty Energy.
The student, endeavoring to understand and apply these mighty yet simple Laws, must stand guard more strictly over his thought and expression, in word or otherwise; for every time you say "I AM not," "I cannot," "I have not," you are, whether knowingly or unknowingly, throttling that "Great Presence" within you. This is just as tangible, as if you placed your hands about the throat of an outer form, only with the outer form, your thought governing the hand, you can release it at any time; but when you make a declaration, using the words "I AM not," you set in motion Mighty, Limitless Energy, that continues to act, unless it is recalled and the imperfection consumed and transmuted.
I plead with you, dear ones, everywhere, do not continue to use these wrong expressions, thinking that in some hocus-pocus way, you may slide past reaping the result: IT SIMPLY CANNOT BE DONE.
It is not, dear student, a matter of belief on your part, whether you accept these Truths or not, but they are The Law, proven through long centuries of experience, and are placed before you for your Freedom.
Awaken to the fact that your thought and feeling in the past have built - created - the inharmony of your world today.
STOP! I say to you, giving power to the outer conditions, persons, places, or things and in the Name of God, every time you find yourself starting to say, "I AM sick," "I AM broke," "I AM not feeling well," instantly reverse this fatal condition to your progress; and declare silently, with all the intensity of your being, - "I AM" - which is all health, opulence, Perfection, happiness, peace, and the power to recognize Perfection in yourself and everywhere else.
