Freed from excessive menopausal bleeding

A time when I learned more about my true nature as God’s child occurred when I was experiencing excessive monthly bleeding during menopause. I was very fearful because I had nursed my mother when she had similar symptoms. She passed on during that time from other causes, but I had connected the two in my thought.

As is my practice in the face of any challenge, I turned to prayer in Christian Science. I sought to gain a clearer understanding of what the truth about my spiritual being really is, since I knew my identity had been created by God, and that everything about me, including all of my functions, are governed by Him. I knew a loving Father-Mother had not made me or any woman to suffer. A comforting, loving divine Parent would never cause or allow harm to His children, so I knew this condition was not coming from God. I claimed for myself the fact that He had created me in His image, perfect, free, and innocent—not as a mortal subject to the belief of a curse, as in the allegory of Adam and Eve in Genesis (see chap. 3:9–19 ).
