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.

This excellent home study course, first printed in 1951 and republished and expanded by the author's wife in 1971, is a clear, forceful presentation of how the Science of Mind works through scientific prayer treatment. The author provides an excellent pedagogical approach throughout, with helpful study questions at the conclusion of each chapter. Dr. Bailes actually shares the secrets behind his own healing of diabeties over a 4 year period. You can heal yourself and speed the healing of others through application of these principles. Contents include: Your Mind and How It Works, Thought and Its Power, The Focus of Attention, Why Man's Mind is Creative, The Sense of Authority, The Technique of Treatment, Treatment for Special Conditions, Practical Aids in Treatment, The Healing Consciousness. This text, along with his best-seller YOUR MIND CAN HEAL YOU (1941), work hand-in-hand to raise your consciousness and clear your vision, making you an effective, spiritually alive individual. Your money will be well-spent!

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!

30 of 34 people found the following review helpful By Robert H. Nunnally Jr. on January 28, 2001
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.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
