Animal Magnetism

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    A paragraph from the 1886 19th Edition of Science and Health, p. 9:

    “The first edition of “Science and Health” was published in 1875. Various books on Mind-cure have since been issued, in imitation of mine; but they are more or less incorrect. They regard the human mind as a healing agent, whereas this mind is not a factor of the Principle of Mental Science. The name Mind-cure is conferred upon Hypnotism and Animal Magnetism. These methods are set forth as scientific, when they are far from scientific.

    Animal Magnetism, for instance, is simply the transfer of the thoughts of one erring mind to another, not an influx of the eternal Mind.” (Emphasis added on last sentence:)
