Unnatural bleeding stopped

One morning I discovered some unnatural bleeding. It had been over 15 years since I had gone through menopause, so the first thing to address was fear. I knew that this “False Evidence Appearing Real,” as I had come to think of fear, was not true of my spiritual identity as the perfect reflection of my Maker. Christian Science reveals that God, Spirit, governs all the functions of His creation harmoniously, and as a spiritual expression of God, my true identity was not governed by blood or any other material element. 

I realized that because each of us is, in truth, the image and likeness of God, I could claim this spiritual fact in my consciousness, and my body would conform by expressing normality. This line of thinking helped lessen the fear, and the situation did not worsen, though it did continue.

The next morning there seemed to be no change, and we were to leave for an extended visit to help with our infant grandchildren in another state. I called a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful treatment. She related a recent experience she’d had at a friend’s dock early one morning. A heavy mist hung over the water, but when the wind came up, the mist totally disappeared. She likened this to divine Spirit moving upon the “waters” of thought to dispel the “mist” of false belief. Before we hung up, she pointed out that the physical evidence of a problem was an illusion with no basis in spiritual reality, so it must disappear.
