Healed of flu symptoms and abdominal pain

After going to bed one night, I began to experience sudden and overwhelming symptoms of the flu, which seemed to be prevalent in my community. Then my nose started to bleed, and on top of that I felt a nagging and persistent aching pain in my abdomen.

Whoa! What’s going on here? I thought. I lay as still as I could and focused on turning thought away from the body and to God. I had learned in an authorized course of instruction in Christian Science healing, called Christian Science Primary class instruction, that physical problems are the manifestation of aggressive mental suggestions. 

I also knew that the kingdom of God reigns in man—the real spiritual man—and that this includes me. And I knew that my individual embodiment of Godlike spiritual qualities was the reality of my being, and that my identity was spiritual and had nothing to do with matter.
