Living Everyday
Wonder-- Body


To affirm is to declare that something is 100 percent true, and to stand in that truth — even in the face of all evidence to the contrary.  Affirmations are positive statements of intention that direct your focus to what you want to experience.

I make it a point to practice self-care. I make an appointment with myself.

Science of Mind Magazine

Properly known as “Science of Mind Magazine: Guide for Spiritual Living”, a metaphysical magazine publication that has been around since 1927 by Dr. Ernest Holmes. The magazine inspires readers to create happier, richer and more satisfying lives by using spiritual principles. This monthly publication has 40,000 subscribers around the world and a Facebook following of more than 400,000. It is available at Barnes & Noble and independent bookstores and comes in print and digital formats. It is published by Centers for Spiritual Living, which is headquartered in Golden, Colorado. 

Holmes developed a universal philosophy and tools for spiritual living that profoundly resonate to this day. His work provides us with a personal spiritual path, an understanding of our relationship with the Universe, and a connected and joyful approach to daily living.

Please call the office 575-523-4847 (HUGS)
if you are interested in Sacred Service.
We are now sponsoring park clean up at Apodaca Park located at 801 E Madrid in Las Cruces.  Previously, we had a stretch of Valley Drive near Avenida de Mesilla, but due to safety concerns, the city no longer has clean up crews working road ways. They now have us clean up parks and path ways. CSL chose to take on Apodaca Park and we look forward to working with folks to provide Sacred Service by helping keep this park clean. Contact the office at 575-523-4847 (HUGS) to participate or email Amy Rohr, our member who has agreed to spearhead this project, at the office email address,
