The How of Mind-healing
In speaking to an audience at Tremont Temple in Boston in 1885, Mrs. Eddy dealt with questions regarding her discovery of Christian Science. She stated the questions and then answered them. One key question was, "How is the healing done in Christian Science?" Miscellaneous Writings, p. 96;
Those turning to Science for healing often ask this question, "How is the healing done?" What they are really asking is: "How can I demonstrate the healing power of this teaching? How can I use it effectively in my own life?" The Bible and the writings of Mrs. Eddy make the how of Mind-healing understandable and demonstrable. And those investigating this interesting and rewarding subject soon find it is certainly not a form of mind control or faith healing. Mrs. Eddy began her answer to the question quoted by correcting the view that Christian Science healing is any kind of thought transference. On the contrary, it is true Mind-healing; it is the action of the divine Mind on human thinking and living. It differs radically from thought control or mind cure, both of which look to the human mind to correct itself or to extricate itself from its own mistakes and troubles.
Mrs. Eddy understood how the divine Mind heals human thinking and bodies. She clearly explains this when she discusses some of the instantaneous physical healings she brought about through her understanding of the infinite God as recognizing no disease. She says, "Certain self-proved propositions pour into my waiting thought in connection with these experiences; and here is one such conviction: that an acknowledgment of the perfection of the infinite Unseen confers a power nothing else can." She continues, "An incontestable point in divine Science is, that because God is All, a realization of this fact dispels even the sense or consciousness of sin, and brings us nearer to God, bringing out the highest phenomena of the All-Mind."
