Multiple minds? Or one Mind?

From the July 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Many years ago, while working as a Christian Science practitioner on a case that wasn’t moving quickly toward healing, I felt sure that the clarification of one point in the metaphysical laws that underlie healing held the key to progress: “How does what I am knowing, affirming, praying, here, reach and impact the person asking for help through prayer over there?” 

I called and asked a colleague, a fellow practitioner, and she replied by asking me two questions: “How many minds are there? How many consciousnesses?”

I said, “Stop. Say no more.” Off like a shot, I knew how to pray more effectively. I needed to start from the right premise.
