From the November 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IN JULY 2009, I attended my Christian Science association, which was held in Chicago's Sheraton Gateway Hotel. We had an inspiring morning session, followed by a lunch break.

I returned to the afternoon session anticipating an even more enlightening time with our speaker. Right after I sat down, however, I was seized with severe chest pains. This had never occurred before, and I was afraid I might be having a heart attack. I was in the process of laying my head down on the table in front of me when the speaker began talking on the topic, "Breaking the Dream." I understood this phrase to mean that Truth wakens us from believing in the reality of error of any kind, because God, Good, never made it. It's a lie about us.

While I don't remember the speaker's exact words, I know that the pain ceased immediately. All I could say was, "Thank you, God. I am healed!" For the rest of the afternoon, I listened to the address and was completely free.

Since then, I've had no return of the problem.
