What is pain and why do YOU have it?
Pain has many faces.
Pain can have its roots in the physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual aspects of your be-ing.
Yet, pain can be your greatest ally when it comes to your own natural healing!
The body is designed to heal its self given the proper environment. However, part of the problem is we have never been taught how to care for and provide a nourishing environment for our bodies to flourish.
Pain is present as the bodies natural way of communicating with you.
Pain has a unique language all unto its self and it is unique to you, individually!
When there is an imbalance somewhere within the body, mind or spirit that goes unheard, the body will communicate to you that something is off.
One might experience a host of “symptoms” such as, headaches, digestive issues, feeling tired, sluggish or even overwhelmed, to just name a few. Yet, for many these messages go unheard. Instead, through conditioning, we reach for a bottle of pills to “fix” what ails us. Only complicating matters by continually Silencing the pain.
What if, instead of silencing the bodies natural means of communication you try something new? What if, for the sake of your own healing you become proactive in the state of your own health and begin to open the lines of communication?
It’s one of the oldest and most natural means of taking back control of your own state of well-being.
When pain is present, your attention is required. Learn to go into that quiet place of silence within.
It’s easy to reach, just Breathe!
What pain is trying to tell you
Draw your attention down into that small place just below your naval and breathe again. Then raise your breath up into your solar plexus right above the naval. Breathe in a deep breath and focus your attention on the naval.
Now that you’ve found your place of silence within, call to your pain!
Yes, give it a voice.
You might ask questions like:
- Why are you here in my (fill in the location of the pain)?
- What message do you have for me?
- What am I to learn from the pain?
- Is there something I am holding on to that is asking to be released?
- If you could speak with me like one person speaking to another, what would you say to me?
- What do you need/want from me?
Or create your own questions to ask of your pain… next, and this is THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE… you LISTEN to what your pain has to share with you.
Now, it may sound or seem like something outside of your everyday norm and it just might be — but, if this pain has been with you for any length of time or if you have not yet felt any relief no matter what you’ve tried, then what have you got to lose beside your PAIN!!!
Open your Self to the vastness of possibilities that surround you.
Open to tuning into your own body’s language and have fun exploring the messages that come forth.
Pain can become your greatest ally and friend or it can remain your worst nightmare, why not allow pain to become your greatest healer?
