Dizziness healed, balance restored

Last December, as I hung up the telephone from my last conference call before closing my home office for the holidays, I stood up at my desk and felt a strange dizziness. At first, I thought that I had just stood up too fast and that the feeling would pass. But it did not pass, and I found I could not walk anywhere without holding on to a wall. It felt as if I were in a carnival fun house, only this was not fun. 

When the dizziness continued the following day, fear crept into my thought, so I called a Christian Science practitioner for treatment through prayer. She read to me a passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures where the author, Mary Baker Eddy, refers to Christ Jesus’ raising of Lazarus from death and asks, “Who dares to doubt this consummate test of the power and willingness of divine Mind to hold man forever intact in his perfect state, and to govern man’s entire action?” (pp. 493–494). 

It was comforting to think about the restoration of Lazarus and to realize that divine Mind, God, was also holding me forever intact in my perfect state. The fear started to dissipate, and I felt the love and support in the practitioner’s words as she agreed to pray with me.
