Spiritual healing and uprooting fear

When I was a little girl, my mother paid me a penny for every dandelion I dug from our yard, providing it had the long root attached. I learned early that if you just lop off the top of a weed, the root grows a new plant.

This could be likened to the mental work of treating disease through Christian Science, the law of God. In order to be successful, it is necessary to uproot fear. When fear is uncovered, and we learn that there's no basis for it because God, good, is all, we can cast out fear, which is always a factor in disease.

Today people throughout the world are experiencing healing through spiritual means. These healings are positive proof of God's ever-present redeeming power and His reliable care. But when fear develops in our thinking, and discouragement suggests we lack adequate understanding to practice Christian healing, this is the time to stand firm for our God-given dominion. Our power of healing comes from God, who is our all-loving creator. St. John tells us in the Bible that we are now the sons of God (see I John 3:2).
