Science of Mind
What is Science of Mind?
‘Science of Mind’ is a spiritual philosophy for the modern man and woman. It is based on the Truth which arises in every culture in the form of science, philosophy, and religion. In today’s language, we view religion as a source of wisdom for revealing the Truth about the seemingly unknown forces that shape our universe. This enables us to participate in our own lives as a co-creator with the Divine. Dia Lynn received her doctorate degree in Religious Studies by creating a 10-week program for Pacific Coast Church teaching anatomy and physiology to metaphysicians and coordinating chakras with metaphysical equivalents and Qigong TCM theory.
‘Church of Religious Science’ is the term used for the organization as founded by Dr. Ernest Holmes. Recently two branches have united and are referring to their religious organizations as ‘Centers for Spiritual Living’ which are located throughout the U.S. The term ‘Science of Mind’ refers to the theological philosophy as explained in Dr. Holmes classic text The Science of Mind – A Philosophy, A Faith, A Way of Life. The practice of “Spiritual Mind Treatment” is the practical use of divine mind through the minds of the practitioners who are trained and certified to offer this mental healing service.

A Statement of Science of Mind’s Core Principles
What We Believe
We believe in God, the living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute, and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation but is not absorbed by Its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God.
We believe in the incarnation of the Spirit in US, and that all PEOPLE are incarnations of the One Spirit.
We believe in the eternality, the immortality, and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding.
We believe that HEAVEN is within us and that we experience IT to the degree that we become conscious of It.
We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.
We believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God. We believe that God is personal to all who feel this indwelling Presence.
We believe in the direct revelation of Truth through our intuitive and spiritual nature, and that ANYONE may become a revealer of Truth who lives in close contact with the indwelling God.
We believe that the Universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a Universal Mind, which is the Law of God; and that we are surrounded by this Creative Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought and acts upon it.
We believe in the healing of the sick through the power of this Mind.
We believe in the control of conditions through the power of this Mind.
We believe in the eternal Goodness, the eternal Loving-kindness, and the eternal Givingness of Life to all.
We believe in our own soul, our own spirit, and our own destiny; for we understand that OUR LIFE is God.

The circle is an ancient symbol representing the wholeness of the universe. The three attributes of the universe: spirit, soul and body(the Religious Science “trinity”), are distinguished by the horizontal lines. The “v” represents the universal creative process, meaning it is used both by God and humankind.
