Family Pet Healed   Leave a comment

The members of the Christian Science community in Canberra share their experiences and thoughts on Christian Science:

One morning recently one of our cats appeared to be quite unwell.  When I checked him I noticed that his face was extremely swollen and he had a deep open cut above one eye.  He showed signs of being in pain and was quite distressed.  This cat is quite a wild creature; he does not permit us to handle him and taking him to the vet wasn’t really an option. 

In our family we are used to solving problems through prayer so I knew that this situation needed clear prayerful thinking.  For me prayer is not a matter of asking God for help but of affirming spiritual truths relating to the situation.  In this situation I made a point of looking away from the disturbing material picture and I held firmly to the idea that this dear kitty was in truth a spiritual idea, and a spiritual idea cannot be injured.  I also reminded myself of the several healings he had experienced previously. 

In Christian Science we are taught to hold to the spiritual truths despite the material evidence.  If we understand and trust these truths that we are claiming then the physical situation adjusts. Holding on to the spiritual truth about this kitty helped me to stop worrying about him and to trust his care to divine Mind.  I thought on these ideas until I felt a sense of peace. 

Within the hour he was up and around and behaving normally.  All signs of swelling had gone and the cut above his eye was healed to the point that I couldn’t even tell where it had been.  He had no further ramifications from this incident.
