Back to Basics – The Magic of the Mind
This month we will examine True Spirituality. Using Ernest Holmes’ books, This Thing Called You and Living the Science of Mind, we will focus on the basics of the Science of Mind teachings and examine the Law of Mind which responds to our thoughts, faith, and convictions.
Week #1 – February 4: Discovering the Science of Mind
Lesson: There is one power in the Universe that flows in and through all things. This power is invisible, but we know it is there. This power is called by many different names (God, Spirit, etc.). We look at ways to see this invisible power in action…in nature (birds – migration), in science (sun and moon, and biology (thirst and fatigue).

Activities: Intuition Cards, sharing a Spiritual Mind Treatment, and drawing the Science of Mind symbol
Affirmation: I am aware of my Spiritual Power every moment and allow it to divinely guide my actions.
Week #2 – February 11: Spirituality
Lesson: The One power is in all people. Everyone we see is a reflection of God. We are completely made of spirit, but we are not all of spirit. Everyone else in the world is also spirit. We will make distinctions between spirituality and superstition and between inherited thought patterns and divinely created thoughts.
Reading/Viewing: This Thing Called You – pages 36, 46, and 47; Spirit Science – Evolution video
Activities: Waterdrops, and Cards for Humanity game
Affirmation: I have confidence in the Supreme Good and allow it to flow through me, blessing everything and everyone I contact.
Week #3 – February 18: Thinking and Creating Affirmatively
Lesson: We create our life based upon our thoughts, words and actions. There is a law that is at work that makes things happen. Everything we see that was created, started with someone’s thoughts. God made things we see reflect abundance (stars & sand), creation (seed to tree), and circulation/cycles (seasons and water cycle).

Affirmation: I choose to live each moment, fully aware that my life is the Life of God.
Week #4 – February 25: Transformation Through Gratitude
Lesson: When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. God is only good. Our thoughts, words and actions can be aligned with God or not. We have the choice.
