About the Author

Dr. Frederick Bailes (1889-1970) of Los Angeles, Calif. was among the most popular and important teachers of the Science of Mind. Dr. Bailes served with Science of Mind founder Ernest Holmes as Assistant Dean of the Science of Mind Institute in Los Angeles. He also headed the largest Science of Mind church of its day. In addition, Dr. Bailes was an accomplished metaphysical healer, having healed himself of a so-called incurable disease, using the very technique Treatment that he explains in these Lessons. The Science of Mind philosophy, says Dr. Frederick Bailes, is not a few psychological tricks; it is a life to be lived.

Format: Paperback
Bailes was an early Church of Religious Science minister. This book is a well-written explanation of Science of Mind ideas, less a "tome" than Ernest Holmes "Science of Mind", which was the foundation work for lectures and meetings from which the church more or less evolved. Although Science of Mind writers tend more to argue for their ideas than to really "evangelize a faith", this work has the slightest flavor of an evangelical work. The reader should not worry that it is off-putting, however. It is readable and its ideas are easy to access. If you wish to understand new thought ideas and an argument for their practical application, this is a good place to start. You may not be a convert (I am not), but you can find a good bit to understand what these Californians were doing, and how it links up with the entire new thought movement.

This book is one to read and study over a 12 week period as the author suggests. It contains 12 lessons in learning how to manifest things in one's life while becoming the person you want to be. A mind-blowing book!

Well written and fairly easy to grasp. Dr. Frederick Bailes covers this in bite size steps and the short quiz at the end of each chapter clarifies - if you don't quite understand all that he has written.

Highly recommended for students of Metaphysics!

This book should be mandatory. If we were taught this at a young age we'd all be living in paradise. Such a simple read, mind blowing, and so truthful it speaks to your soul and your soul speaks back.

The concepts presented are easy to understand. Thoughts that may be new to the reader are given with many analogies, thus helping one to grasp the more complex nature of the material. This book can be either studied alone or in a group. It may be more beneficial in a group setting so that all can share their particular perspective which is really many voices saying the same thing in different ways.

Frederick Bailes is a fine teacher of the Science Of Mind philosophy of metaphysics, which can be reduced to these two statements from SOM founder Ernest Holmes:

“It is done unto you as you believe.” and “When the time has come that nothing goes forth from you other than which you would be glad to have in return, then you will have reached your heaven.”

( Otherwise known as the Law Of Mind, and The Law Of Attraction, the cosmic laws that bind the ignorant, but free the wise)

Bailes, in this book, and in all of his others, expertly guides you into utilizing those two great spiritual laws. Bailes shows you how to enjoy the fruitage of a spiritualized consciousness,- the greatest gift of all.

All of Baile’s books are must reads for metaphysicians.

Highly recommended.
