It is with deep gratitude that I share the following testimony of a healing that occurred a number of years ago. There was an abnormal issue of blood that had continued for some time. There was also pain and some swelling. I called a Christian Science practitioner and told her of the situation. She agreed to pray for me and then asked me why I would believe in such a condition when it was no part of my real being as the spiritual idea of God.

This question startled me and aroused me to become more receptive to the healing Christ, Truth. I did not have to accept the condition. I saw that my true identity is not in what is called a mortal body but is a spiritual idea, made in the image and likeness of God, as is recorded in the first chapter of Genesis, verses 26 and 27. I realized that I was totally separate from the whole claim of a physical difficulty and that the truth of God was present. As Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy states (p. 14), "Entirely separate from the belief and dream of material living, is the Life divine, revealing spiritual understanding and the consciousness of man's dominion over the whole earth." God had given me dominion, and I had to use it.

The result was that shortly after I hung up the telephone something came away from the body, and within a half-hour all bleeding stopped. I was able to resume normal activity and care for the family. Many years have passed since this, to me, most remarkable healing, and I am grateful to be able to share it.
