Headaches gone

People who are unfamiliar with Christian Science sometimes wonder how it applies to pain. The answer is that Christian Science is not about managing or suffering through pain, but about seeing pain as unreal to God, something God would never send or permit, and therefore no more than a mental impression to us—one that can be healed completely and quickly.

The healing of severe headaches, which I experienced some time ago, showed me how prayer can bring pain to a complete stop. I had one of these headaches a few times a year for about a decade. I learned early on that they would not go away on their own. I couldn’t sleep them off or relax or eat something to make them go away. But I could pray and heal them. While I dreaded the headaches and usually went through a short time of moaning and complaining when they came on, I was learning and proving that healing would always come, and that I could stop pain.

Each experience was different. The stories and lessons learned are many. I would like to share two incidents.
