Pain can mean many things to different people, but on the most basic level, pain is simply a way for your body to give you warning signals and to communicate to you. But what is the pain trying to tell you? We’ll get to that soon enough. For now, remember that keeping an open mind and changing the way you look at something can have an affect on how you feel about it.
How often have you yourself or seen others try to wish a pain away? Some people try to mask pain by taking medications or have had treatments or procedures done to relieve their pain. They may have even been able to cut their pain out of them by having surgery and removing it from their body. Others might have even become so acquainted with their pain that they accept it as a part of their daily life.
Imagine that you had knee pain that has been bothering you for a few years. One day, on a walk, you stumbled upon a magical lamp and out came a genie to grant you one wish. What would you probably ask for? Would be it, “What is my purpose here? or How do I help this world? Probably not, most likely, it would be “How do I get rid of my knee pain?”. Of all the possible questions you could ask! In my office, we start working together on regulating the physical aspects of a person i.e. through life force, before we move to the emotional, mental and spiritual levels. There’s a difference in consciousness between pain and suffering and spiritual awakening. The gap can be closed quickly though most often it is easier to accept a gradual shift.
Often, when people come in for an initial consultation with me, they say “If only I could get rid of my bad blank (back, neck, shoulder, etc), everything would be ok.” The truth is, even if you managed to have surgery and cut out a part of you, you’d still be missing information that your body is trying to tell you. You’d also be missing a part of the whole you.
There have been some great studies on organ transplant recipients that have demonstrated emotions and experiences being stored in various parts of the body. Paul Pearsall is a neuropsychologist who writes about the physical heart containing memories that belonged to it’s original person. There have been many cases where after undergoing a heart transplant, the recipient has had personality changes that can be traced back to the hearts original owner. This demonstrates that each part of your body contains information about you.
It is time to pay attention to the messages coming from your body.
