A few facts about Phillip

Things can seem bleak when we see all the kinds of suffering going on in the world, perhaps even among our family members or neighbors. But sometimes these very circumstances spur individuals to find new ways to help and heal.

Phillip Hockley is a practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker. After sustaining a debilitating injury which was diagnosed as rendering him permanently disabled, Hockley began investigating ways to improve his situation.  Along the course of his search, he attended a lecture on Christian Science.

‘During that lecture,’ he says, ‘I found something that was indeed life-transforming. Christian Science gave me a new view of God that I’d not had before: a view of God as Love itself, divine Love that loved me fully. I also discovered that this loving God was not the source of my troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. My life began to improve quickly and I became a healthy man.’

Now Hockley speaks on Christian Science, introducing the core principles to audiences all over the world. In this talk, Hockley will draw on concepts from the Bible, especially Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, as well as explanations from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the textbook of Christian Science written by Mary Baker Eddy.

After the difference Christian Science made in his own life, Phillip Hockley knew he needed to share it with others dealing with similar mindsets of discouragement.  ‘From that moment on I knew I had found something very special and could hardly wait to explain this experience to others—this ability to love and be loved by God,’ he says.  Now, he maintains a healing ministry and is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

 

 

Christian Science Journal – Healing through coming to Christ

Healing Through Coming To ChristSue A. Spotts wrote an article from August 1992 that was recently shared on the Christian Science Journal website titled, Healing through coming to Christ. The article focuses on our connection with Christ:

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to have met Christ Jesus or to have been able to go to him for healing?

How would we approach this holiest of all men, the Son of God? Tentatively perhaps, not knowing quite what to expect—unsure of what might be required of us by the gospel he was proclaiming. Or we might see ourselves as coming to the Master with a bright sense of hope that not only would our bodies be restored but our thinking and our lives would also be touched by his healing prayer. Still others of us might imagine what unutterable humility we would feel in the presence of his spirituality, what a distance we would sense between our own meager expression of goodness and the sheer radiance of his light and love…

Christian Science Journal – Consistency in healing practice

Consistency In Healing PracticeDeWitt John wrote an article originally published in June 1982 that was recently shared again on the Christian Science Journal website titled, Consistency in healing practice. The article focuses on the consistencies seen through Christian Science and is worth a read:

One of the outstanding characteristics of Christian Science is its consistency—in metaphysical teachings, method of practice, and ethical standard. This consistency rests on unqualified acceptance of the omnipotence and goodness of God, divine Principle, as the only creator and source of man’s being.

To illustrate: If we start with the foundational truth that God, the creator of all that exists, is infinite Mind, this leads in Science to the logical conclusion that all that really is created is Mind’s manifestation, and hence divinely mental. And from the basic fact that the all-creating God is Spirit, not matter, flows the conclusion that all is in reality spiritual, not material…

Maryann McKay published an article on the Christian Science Monitor website today about a healing during a Wednesday night church service. She writes:

I was traveling for work and was scheduled to be on the road for nine weeks straight with almost no time off. The strenuous schedule left little time for rest. A month in, I was exhausted and coughing a great deal. Swallowing and speaking were very painful. I prayed earnestly about this as I had learned to do in Christian Science, but while there was improvement, the symptoms continued. I struggled to keep up with the work and travel. I felt alone, separated from God, and in need of spiritual inspiration, reassurance, and, most of all, healing…

Rowanne Karapogosian shared an article this week on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Singer healed of lost voice. The article focuses on  God’s Love:

I have been a student of Christian Science my whole life, and I have had countless healings through my understanding of Christian Science and through the prayers of Christian Science practitioners.

I received one early proof of God’s love for His children when I was in tenth grade. I was a member of my high school’s madrigal singers choir, and we received an invitation for two of our singers to audition for a large, semiprofessional performance group. Three of us raised our hands: a senior, a junior, and a sophomore—me. Our teacher said that the two oldest students could audition and that only if the director had time to take a third, could I audition.

Join Christian Science lecturer and healer, Phillip Hockley for his talk on “A new view of God and its effect on well-being”, Thursday, April 4th at 7:30pm at the Museum of Biblical Art.

From Phillip Hockley…
“Although humble beginnings and hard knocks taught me the value of being honest and hard working, for oneself and others, it did not last long into adult life. Rapid success in business and a hard-partying lifestyle led to an increasing sense of inner emptiness and led into a pathway of drink and drugs.

In the early 1990s a fall that badly injured the spine started a seven year downward spiral of ill health. By 1999, after trying every alternative and spiritual healing method, without any cure, I was registered as physically handicapped.

During those years of physical decline, I researched many religions and forms of spirituality, eventually focusing my time on mindfulness practices. This helped me be aware of the painful body without reacting with fear. Thus, by remaining equanimous, I could choose to be happy instead of fearful.

This attitude of “broken body—happy mind” was present at the time I felt very strongly attracted to attend my first ever Christian Science lecture—against my own best judgment at the time!

What happened to me at that lecture was truly transformational. Not only was I healed of all my diseases at that event but also, more importantly, I was healed of my hardness towards the message of the Bible—telling us of God’s great love for each one of us. Christian Science explains the Bible promises so clearly. To me, the greatest of the promises is that we can all feel and live with this divine love, a heavenly love, here and now.

From that moment on I knew I had found something very special and could hardly wait to explain this experience to others—this ability to love and be loved by God.
I had gone to the lecture with no expectations but I left with no limitations.

There’s no question that I was jubilant about the way my life was being transformed. But what impressed me the most was finding out that these kinds of breakthroughs aren’t one-time, personal miracles. God’s love is available to everyone, and there’s even a textbook on Christian Science healing that explains the power of God’s love in our lives: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

…what I’ll share in my lecture, is that the perspective of God and reality that Christian Science opens up is one that offers freedom from whatever in our lives seems painful, debilitating, or limiting. I’ll talk about a 19th-century woman, Mary Baker Eddy, who, after a life-threatening injury, discovered this new view of God for herself and went on to explain her discovery and its Bible-based principles in her book Science and Health. And I’ll share how that discovery is still relevant to our lives today because of what it reveals about God’s great love for each of us and its powerful, life-transforming effects.”
