My Sleepover – Saved!   Leave a comment

P1030965 (4)

I was around my friend’s house for a sleepover and suddenly felt very sick, so I ran into the bathroom. My friend knocked on the door and asked if she could get me anything. I asked her to get my cellphone. My mum always supported me to pray, whenever I had a difficulty, and encouraged me to talk to the Christian Science practitioner who had prayed for me before. So before calling my mum, I decided to call this practitioner. I knew it wasn’t right that my sleepover be wrecked. I took a stand and decided that this sickness was like a “sneaky snake” trying to make me believe something bad was true about me.

I rang the practitioner and she told me that I was at one with God, and God was my friend. A friend would never hurt me. So God could never let me be hurt. I hung up the phone, and sat there thinking about what she had said. I thought about how I was the “reflection of perfection,” which was something my mum always says.

How a Change of Consciousness brings Healing   Leave a comment

Read how this writer experienced healing of sudden and overwhelming symptoms of the flu, nose bleed and abdominal pain when she “focused on turning thought away from the body and to God.”

She shares: ” I have always loved Mary Baker Eddy’s description in her book Unity of Good of how Christ Jesus healed: “He demanded a change of consciousness and evidence, and effected this change through the higher laws of God” (p. 11). If Jesus could do this, then I could too. He said so.

P1050228 (2)

I continued to demand a change of  consciousness and evidence. The change in consciousness involved exchanging mortal thinking and belief in material laws for the divine laws of Spirit—ever present and all-powerful. The change in evidence was natural as I acknowledged the truth of perfect Mind and perfect reflection, “perfect God and perfect man” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 259). The so-called body must be governed by the Mind that governs man. It has no alternative.”

How a seagull taught me to ‘see more’   Leave a comment

Psalm 139: “If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me” (verses 9, 10).

” And so it was through a simple seagull that I learned more of God. I learned that God’s love comes in infinite shapes. I learned that whatever seems to limit, confine, or diminish us in any way cannot be true—because it is not divinely authorized. I learned that Love will find us wherever we are, and remains with us as we gain our freedom.”

“Seagulls are a common sight on Cape Cod, where I used to live. They frequent the beaches, parking lots, campgrounds—they are everywhere! And still, their grace and beauty, their ease in flight as they pass over the ocean, always impresses me. I love them.

While driving home from work one evening a number of years ago, I saw a seagull on the side of the road, dragging one wing, struggling to fly. I found a safe place to pull over and scooped him up, reassuring him that I was there to help. He was frightened, and being a wild creature, did not take to being confined in my truck—but as I wrapped him in my sweater to hold his wing in place, he quieted. I brought him to my farm, where a multitude of animals awaited their evening feeding.

Having worked at a veterinary hospital as a nurse for many years, I knew how to tape up his wing. This I did, and placed him in a small hay shed with fresh water and some tuna fish. We called him Seymour, because that is what a bird can do from its vantage point in the sky: see more!…….”

The question of time and healing   1 comment

$ dreamstime_11095603“Now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped. Don’t put it off” 

The Message: (II Corinthians 6:2, Eugene Peterson). 

“What truly matters—what in fact is absolutely necessary—is a change of thought from materiality to spiritual Truth. And though this mental and spiritual transformation may take diligent as well as patient prayer, it never requires time.

We’re always thinking. And although at times it might take persistence to yield material thoughts for those that are more spiritual, it certainly requires no more time to think a true, spiritual thought than to entertain a false, limiting, or material one. Every moment we have a choice about what we allow ourselves to mentally entertain. So the question for us becomes, What are we paying attention to—what are we seeing, acknowledging, and accepting as real, powerful, and true here and now?…..

The Faith that Heals   Leave a comment

shutterstock_3216200.

This recording is of the readings on the topic, The Faith that Heals, that formed part of the Wednesday Testimony Meeting at the Christian Science Church in Canberra this week (12 July 2017).

The readings are from the The Bible – King James Version and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

 

 … the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; … (The Bible – James 5: 15)

your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. (The Bible – I Corinthians 2: 5)

The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, — a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p1: 1-4)

A Testimony Meeting is held every Wednesday at 6.00 pm.  A new topic is introduced each week and members of the congregation are encouraged to share their own thoughts on this topic and to tell how they have been helped and healed by spiritualising thought.
