Sore throat and fever cured

It was dark and very early in the morning when I woke up. My first response to swallowing was “Ow.” The second was a mental picture, a label, and a worry that there was a long process ahead with some pain involved—I thought I had been through something similar before. All of this presented itself to my consciousness in less than a moment. 

I lay there under the covers, not wanting to swallow, but realizing I couldn’t just “tough it out.” It was cold in the room and I didn’t want to leave the bed, but just trying to go back to sleep wasn’t going to cut it. I immediately turned to God. 

I calmly acknowledged the allness of God, good, and the allness of spiritual reality, claiming that there is no action, reaction, connection, effect, or place outside of wholly encompassing Spirit. “I am in Spirit. There is only spiritual reality. There is nothing else.” It was simple and clear thinking. This wasn’t just some ideal statement of inspiring words or a process of trying to find the right idea to destroy the symptoms. The divine Science of Christianity is not an alternative health-care system—it is the truth.
