What’s the best way to feel renewed? Thomas (Tim) Mitchinson, a colleague and a writer, who focuses on the relationship between thought, spirituality, health and trends in that field, gives us much food for thought on this topic. Tim writes: Continue Reading
SPECIAL UPDATE: Before we get to today’s blog, I’d like to draw your attention to this Daily Lift referencing spiritual thoughts following the election.
Is spirituality the core of our existence? My colleague Keith Wommack of Texas speaks to the child-like thought in all of us when he points out the importance of gaining an understanding of our children’s spirituality and our own. Here is Keith’s recent post.
Is it possible to take a different approach than using medication for people being cared for in a medical setting?
That’s the question I had to ask myself when my mother was admitted to a memory loss facility.Continue Reading
My colleague Tim Mitchinson is a health blogger from Illinois, who like many of us here in Southern California looks for effective ways to maintain good health. He writes about the health benefits gained when thought is attuned to the divine, an effective replacement for supplements.Continue Reading
The slogan “We care, but God heals” that my colleague from Nigeria, Mojisola Solanke, writes about in her blog piqued my interest. Is this recognition of a power beyond the medical found here in Southern California?Continue Reading

Do’s and don’ts to regain the joy of life.
1) Stop being critical. Criticism closes your eyes to the good that has always been yours. Critical states of thought lead to critical mistakes, as well as cause critical states of the body.
2) Stop keeping score. It is not what others do but how much divine goodness you express that will ultimately satisfy you.
3) Stop trying to prove you are right. Instead of telling others you are right and they are wrong, live what is right and your life will begin to sparkle.
4) Start forgiving. Forgiveness means starting over with love. It wipes the slate clean. Forgive yourself and others. Forgiving others is about your peace of mind, not about absolving someone else’s responsibility for wrongdoing.
5) Be grateful. Be grateful for everything good in your relationships and in your home. Gratitude completes the circuit in healing. It awakens you to the magnitude of your divine life. Pain and gratitude are incompatible.
6) Be honest. Honesty allows you to be at peace, even in the middle of unrest. It keeps you strong. “Honesty is spiritual power. Dishonesty is human weakness, which forfeits divine help.” (Mary Baker Eddy – Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures)

There is just one game left, the Super Bowl. The regular season of the NFL (National Football League) is complete. It was a special year. The Green Bay Packers flirted with a perfect season. Tim Tebow’s faith and dramatic comebacks stole many a headline. The Houston Texans even won their first playoff game. Yet, the New England Patriots and the New York Giants will now decide which team is the best of the best at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on February 5.
I am a fan of the game. Although I spend more time watching games than I should admit, I spend even more helping to heal the pain and suffering of others. Therefore, it quickly caught my attention when Dallas Cowboys’ safety, Gerald Sensabaugh, recently said, “Pain is just mental.”Continue Reading

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to discuss Christian Science with a newspaper editor. After hearing about the religious organization and the system of spiritual health care, she said, “Since Christian Science is weird, it –.” The editor stopped mid-sentence, looked at me, and said, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to call Christian Science weird. I’m so sorry.”
After the editor apologized several more times, I said, “Forget about it. It’s okay,” and we went back to our pleasant discussion.Continue Reading

Skill, knowledge, and experience are a must for any successful health care provider. Good bedside manners, compassion, as well proficiency in communication are also valued commodities in doctors, nurses, and health practitioners.
Now consider humility. Not usually high on the list of admired professional attributes, humility is vital to healing according to Doug Smith, a consultant with over 25 years of experience as a counselor, therapist, and health care administrator. He is the author of several books, including Spiritual Healing. Speaking before a group of health professionals at the Third Annual Medical-Spirituality Conference in Dayton last week, Smith thinks a little humility training is in order.Continue Reading
A guest post written by John Belote
The global financial crisis added a new term to our lexicon, a “Black Swan” event, to describe “an event or occurrence that deviates beyond what is normally expected of a situation and that would be extremely difficult to predict”. These typically random and unexpected events might describe other items in the news: the tragedy in Japan, mass uprisings in the MENA countries, terrorism, extreme weather, and a volcanic eruption that temporarily closed airspace over Europe.
If it seems Black Swans are circling these days, we can look for safety in a spiritual sense of existence. The characters in both the Old and New Testament demonstrated through reliance on God deliverance from many perilous conditions, which appeared as miracles. Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, discovered a divine Principle and cause behind the many miracles recorded in the Bible, and devoted her life to giving the world that discovery.Continue Reading
