about

This book contains a series of healing affirmations and metaphysical self-treatments written in the latter part of the 19th Century by ex-student of Mary Baker Eddy, and independent Christian Science teacher and practitioner, Ursula Gestefeld. 

Ursula Gestefeld, along with Emma Curtis Hopkins, were once trusted lieutenants in Mary Baker Eddy's Christian Science movement, but reacted against her authoritarian possessiveness and broke with her to became teachers of men and women who later founded movements of considerable extent and influence that have collectively been considered as New Thought groups. 

Gestefeld is probably best known for her novel, The Woman Who Dares, a protest against the hypocrisy of marriage. The work portrayed a male-dominated society that used all means-legal, political, economic and religious-to enforce women's sexual subservience to men. 

By the turn of the century, Gestefeld had expanded her mental health theories to include material wealth. She was a frequent speaker in metaphysical movement congresses, served as member of the Executive Committee of the Metaphysical League, and was present at the formation of the International New Thought Alliance in London in 1914, and continued to write and lecture throughout the 1910s.
