If you’re wondering how to be a more effective healer, conquer material sense.
Mary Baker Eddy, an expert on how to heal through prayer, wrote in her textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,
“I hope, dear reader, I am leading you into the understanding of your divine rights, your heaven-bestowed harmony, — that, as you read, you see there is no cause (outside of erring, mortal, material sense which is not power) able to make you sick or sinful; and I hope that you are conquering this false sense.”
(Science and Health, p. 253).
Conquer material sense! It’s the path to healing.
Material sense is a material view of things. Instead of seeing home, it sees a house. Instead of seeing boundless supply, it sees lack. Instead of seeing health, it sees disease. Instead of seeing beauty and order, it sees ugliness and chaos. Material sense is a limited, constricted, finite view of God’s infinite, unlimited and glorious universe of unending good and eternal life.
You conquer material sense by employing spiritual sense. Spiritual sense is your ability to discern God’s presence, see God’s reality and experience God’s goodness.
We all have spiritual sense. It’s the way God made us. You have spiritual sense. You have a very good, strong and keen spiritual sense!
Be sure to use your spiritual sense all day today. Don’t let it go. It’s the best, happiest and healthiest place your thinking could possibly be.
When you are aware of spiritual reality, you are conquering material sense. You are not letting it influence your decisions or affect your experience. You will be happier, healthier and better off.
Conquer material sense by relying upon spiritual sense. Healing will come easier for you.
