“Sometimes the most difficult people to help are our loved ones – simply because we have too many preconceived ideas about them. Throw all of those preconceived ideas out of your mind. Let go of them. Don’t even think of your loved ones as male or female. Instead, declare, “This is the living Christ.” You want only that type of relationship. Declare with complete authority, “You are the living Christ. I see the living Christ in you. The living Christ relationship between the two of us is filled with love and only love.” Prayers such as those for your loved ones will make your days fantastic. It will be a new experience that is an expression of joy like you’ve never felt before.”
