Healed of Headaches   2 comments

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

My heart is full of gratitude to God for His constant care and the teachings of the Holy Bible together with a greater awareness of who I am really as taught through the writings of Mary Baker Eddy.  Mrs Eddy shared her ideas with the world through the teachings of Christian Science which she discovered through a personal healing in the year 1866.

She explains that through a better understanding of God we can have healing experiences as promised by our Wayshower, Jesus Christ. He reminded us that with God all things are possible and that the wonderful works which he did were available to all and not restricted to any time in human history.

I would like to share how I was healed of headaches early in my study of Christian Science.  At this time of my life I was working in a job which put me constantly attending to the public and expected to be always bright, smiling and attentive to the needs of others.

Sometimes this was a challenge as I was bothered by headaches.  One particular day as I went about my business I asked myself if I thought that God could have a headache. I already knew a bit about God, His goodness and purity, His all-power and presence, and His constant love for His children, His ideas, totally inseparable from the Creator. God, the author of man, could not have a headache.

Next question – well, could I, as one of those children,  possibly have a headache?  Answer, totally impossible!  I could have only what God gave me and that was all good, so no headache in that goodness. The throbbing vanished immediately, and for all time. The healing was immediate and remained permanent.

Over the intervening years, which are many, I have not had another headache.  I cannot say that the temptation has not tapped on the door of my consciousness, but it is briskly dismissed because I know that this suggestion has been dealt with and I do not need to cover that old ground again.  To use the words of Jesus, “Get thee behind me, Satan” (Matt 4:10).  Satan is a Hebrew word signifying an adversary, an enemy, an accuser. Sometimes I would simply declare: I don’t do headaches.

As I write about this experience I also recall another proof of the completeness of the healing many years later.  I was working in an office at the time, and as people went home from work they walked past my desk as they stepped into the lift.  On this particular day as one of the ladies left she said she couldn’t wait to go home as she had such a terrible headache.  I mentally cried out, “There is no such thing as a headache” God does not have them or give them, so they cannot exist.

A very short time later the lift returned and this same lady stepped out of the lift and asked, “Did you pray for me?  By the time I got to ground level the headache had gone” The office was four floors above ground level. This person knew that I prayed about things, but as I recall I just smiled and said “no such thing as a headache”.

  1. That’s a good line: I don’t do headaches. Just ‘fill in the blank’ for the headache:
    I don’t do {Blank}…..headache; migraine; stomach ache; cramps; angst; argument etc.

  2. Bless you for sharing – it’s been a very long time since I dealt with the daily headache – no need to go there again –
    I love “don’t do headaches”.
