1: Everyday Miracles
"Anyone who doesn't believe in
miracles isn't a realist."
Why does a seemingly capricious
deity answer prayers for some people and not for others? Why do
some prayers remain unfulfilled? Is our technique of prayer
ineffectual? Are we praying amiss?
Some people who attempt to pray
give up in defeat, concluding that prayer does not work for them.
They assume that only the fortunate few, perhaps those with extreme
purity in their hearts, or excessive faith in their souls, can pray
successfully. But God seems to lend a deaf ear to ordinary
As a child I tried to pray and
hoped God would respond. But it seemed the more I prayed, the more
God refused to listen. I came to the conclusion that either God
does not exist, or else I am not worthy for God to acknowledge me.
This childhood experience was so disheartening that I totally lost
touch with how accessible God can be.
It was not until 1986, when I
learned a powerful method called "Scientific Prayer," that I
realized that anyone who can learn a few simple principles is
capable of praying successfully and getting startling
Even though many people are not
getting winning results from prayer, there are millions who have
used a proven prayer technique that is effective, practical, and
highly successful. By reading this book, you will learn and
practice this extraordinary method.
This book offers a unique process
of Scientific Prayer that will help you get the positive outcome
you are seeking. This system is based on the teachings of "New
Thought," which is, in turn, the foundation of the human potential
New Thought teachings were
developed by such illumined souls as Ernest Holmes (1887-1960),
founder of Church of Religious Science and author of The Science of
Mind, and Charles (1854-1948) and Myrtle (1845-1931) Fillmore,
co-founders of the Unity Church.
New Thought, a nonsectarian philosophy, proposes that all causes
are internal forces, and all difficulties can be overcome by
metaphysical means, such as prayer and affirmation. "Spiritual Mind
Treatment," in which mind is considered primary and causative, is
the principal method of healing used in New Thought.
Although prayer and affirmation
have become increasingly popular, many people do not know how to
pray effectively. They read books or attend churches that inspire
them to pray, yet they do not know how to put the words together
that comprise a powerful, masterful prayer. While many people have
studied principles of prayer and affirmation, they have not
received basic training in the art of prayer.
This unique book offers a new,
systematic approach to prayer. It helps anyone create miracles in
daily life through a simple nine-step Scientific Prayer method.
This system offers a source of inner strength and self-confidence
unavailable in other teachings.
Although this book addresses the
need to develop prayer power, it does not assume prior experience
in the field. Anyone can easily comprehend and apply these simple
methods that can be used in everyday life. These field-proven
techniques have been tested and verified by millions of people from
all backgrounds and religions, who have experienced significant

Grace Suzuki, a teacher from San Francisco says,

no matter who we happen to be with. This is a wonderful sense of

Doina Barkhaus, teacher from Phoenix, Arizona

Shumsky's 'Expect Miracles' workshop, I would have had to attend
church for 100 years. Upon awakening the next morning, I was so
much lighter! I had let go of all my religious conditioning-my
preconceived notions of what God is. I was lifted to a new level. I
realized, I AM a divine being! I AM a part of God, and it's okay to
say that. I realized how limiting my life has been, and I'm ready
to cut through! I know what to pray for, what the block is, and
what to do. I am ready to let it go. A lot of obstacles were

WHY I WROTE THIS
I have practiced spiritual
disciplines since 1967, when I learned to meditate. My first
spiritual mentor was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, enlightened master from
India, guru of the Beatles and Deepak Chopra, and founder of
Transcendental Meditation. In 1970, on the banks of the Ganges
River in India, Maharishi personally trained me to be a meditation
teacher. I lived in his ashrams (learning institutions) in secluded
areas, including the Himalayas of India and the Swiss Alps, for
twenty-two years, and I served on his personal staff for seven of
Under Maharishi's tutelage, I used to meditate up to twenty hours
a day. I would go into my room and not emerge for eight weeks at a
time. Meals were left outside my door. I sometimes observed silence
and did not utter a word for four months at a time. I fasted for up
to two months at a time. I practiced total celibacy. I was in
introvert, and that is definitely an understatement.
After spending twenty-two years
with my eyes closed, I had a profound realization. Even though I
was fortunate to enjoy amazing spiritual experiences in daily
meditation, I was not expressing spirituality in my outer
personality. Exceedingly arrogant, I believed my guru was the only
guru, his teaching was the only way to realize God, and his
disciples were superior human beings on a higher mission. No one
could tell me anything-I knew it all. Little did I know how little
Happily, I was introduced to a
wonderful New Thought teaching in San Diego-Teaching of Intuitional
Metaphysics, founded by Dr. Peter Meyer, co-author of Being a
Christ! Dr. Meyer's techniques helped me attain direct
communication with the "still small voice" of God within and to use
the power of the spoken word in prayer in order to heal others and
I began teaching Divine Revelation® seminars, and students had
such miraculous experiences that I was inspired to offer these
seminars in print. Divine Revelation was the first book published.
