Christian Science Healing

A Christian Science healing is an unsurpassed experience. Often it at once results in a freedom so complete that what seemed inharmony now is remembered only as a dream or is happily forgotten. In other words, man's divine right of freedom is glimpsed, and for a time at least thought rests in the sunshine of harmonious reality. At this time the actuality of man's perfection may be clearer to the awakened thought. The experience brings with it a feeling of happy exaltation, a holy joy, which many witness to as "the peace of God, which passeth all understanding." A Christian Science treatment brings blessedness. James writes, "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." The affirming and reaffirming of the truth cannot fail to correct mortal mind's erroneous conclusions, and to make harmonious spiritual facts clearer to human consciousness, so giving it new hope and peace.

When awakened from an unpleasant dream, the individual is naturally happy to find that the experience was not real, and soon forgetting the dream he enjoys his freedom, no longer believing himself unhappy, sick, or terrified. What is it that awakens him to realize his freedom in the place of fear? In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 494) Mary Baker writes, "Reason, rightly directed, serves to correct the error of corporeal sense; but sin, sickness, and death will seem real (even as the experiences of the sleeping dream seem real) until the Science of man's eternal harmony breaks their illusion with the unbroken reality of scientific being."
