Imagine that your body is in a state of constant stress and it feels as if it’s a constant battle each day? Your body will then only allow you to keep experiencing the signals needed for survival.
As long as you are in a protected or defended state, your body won’t release the other stored experiences. This then, creates tension throughout your body as more and more emotions and events accumulate.
The body will compensate and adapt until it can no longer do so and then eventually, it will snap. You’ve heard the expression of the straw that broke the camel’s back? That how some people end up in my office. They bend over to put their socks on and their back gives out on them. It was not simply that one event. Our bodies are meant to have flexibility and range of movement....putting our socks on alone should not cause that kind of pain.
People Don’t Mind Pain
Can you think of a situation in which someone could experience pain and be happy about it? What about a mother who is about to give birth? They are in pain and yet they know that there will be a good outcome for the pain.
I had a friend who suddenly developed a virus in her brain. She ended up paralyzed from neck down and couldn’t feel anything. One day, she felt excruciating pain in her toe and she was ecstatic and overjoyed. It meant that she could feel again.
For a lighter example, have you ever been to the gym and the next day was so sore from your workout and also feeling great?
These examples show that it is not simply about the pain. People do not mind being in pain! People mind having pain and being fearful of it!
