Over many years my clients usually have come to me for one of two reasons. The first is wanting to know the future and hoping for a pain free journey,the other is wanting to leave a painful past or present behind.
What I have discovered is that our pain body, whether it be conscious or unconscious within us is running both our waking and sleeping lives! It is screaming out for our attention every moment of everyday and creates such symptoms as anxiety,panic,depression and physical illness.It is possibly the most avoided emotion in our society.
We have all sorts of tricks and ways to numb it, avoid it or convince our way out of it!
If only we could realise that in fact, pain is a divine messenger that is looking for acknowledgement of its existence and that it loves us so much it will not leave us until we receive its gift! And the gift my friends is that its job is to alarm us to when we are disconnected from the core of our Being, which is Love.
So how do you acknowledge your pain body?
Firstly through your deepest desire and intention to transform it. Then find a quiet space and become still (sitting is best at it keeps you more alert) then the more you relax, begin to talk to your pain body or even physical body. Listen with no expectation of what might appear, then begin to direct your breathing in and out of where you are beginning to feel anxiety or discomfort. Keep breathing slowly and deeply and if the sensation moves then take your breathe to that region. Continue this until either emotion begins to well and release or you feel a shift.
Giving gratitude and love to your pain body is the only way to truly release it for good.This has been proven to me every time I have taken a soul into their pain.
So love your pain and be aware of when you are making decisions based on fear of future pain. See a clear intention of Love running through all of your experiences and know in fact that pain is a beautiful gift that when open is Love.
