In Religious Science circles, a ‘demonstration’ is the manifestation of a spiritual mind treatment, or in layman’s terms: an answered prayer.
A significant portion of this blog will be dedicated to cataloging and documenting the demonstrations that I have experienced, and on occasion the demonstrations of others. Some are fun, some are awe-inspiring and others will make you walk around with your mouth open for a while. Such is the power of “this Thing Itself” as Ernest Holmes referred to it in his seminal work, ‘The Science of Mind‘.
Dr. Holmes often said, “There’s a power for Good in the universe – and you can use It!”
Spiritual Mind Treatment, or affirmative scientific prayer, is the way we access that power.
