A recent experience made a deep impression on me. My upper front teeth were separated by a space of about an eighth of an inch. I remarked to a friend that I should like to have an outstanding proof that would convince me that matter is not substance. At the same time I memorized a few words from a poem which brought out the thought that an understanding of God dissolves the sense of separateness. I repeated these lines to myself for a few days, and when I was led to look at the teeth, I saw to my amazement that the sense of separateness had indeed dissolved. The teeth had come together.

I was healed of the cigarette habit at a time when I was smoking more than thirty cigarettes a day. My first efforts were unavailing because people around me smoked, and the odor of smoke was so tantalizing that I could not resist the temptation. I explained this to the practitioner and had an instantaneous healing.

I have been healed of sick headaches. I remember one occasion on which I had been in bed for two days, unable to eat and scarcely able to lift my head, when the words came to me, "Arise, and work, and sing." I managed to go into the next room, where there was ironing to be done, but each time I pushed the iron over the board, it seemed as if it were the last time I could make the effort. Then I realized I was not being obedient. The third command had been to sing. I began singing a hymn, and before I had sung it through three times, every vestige of illness had vanished and I felt perfectly normal.
