The Understanding of Physical Pain

I always get frustrated when there are campaigns to find cures for particular diseases. It’s very frustrating because common sense dictates that the raise in dis-ease of the body would directly relate to the amount of toxins that the body is ingesting. Anything that is experienced by the senses needs to be processed by the body.

With my hands on work, I have experienced  how emotional toxins cause physical pain. Doctors call it fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a systemic illness that has no known cure. Doctors are only able to lessen symptoms. It is categorized as excruciating trigger points of pain in the body.

I know from experience that fibromyalgia is an overload of emotional as well as physical toxins in the body. People need to find a way to release the emotional pain that the body is storing as stagnant energy. A way to help yourself is by thinking of the body as an ever fluid river of energy. Visualize pouring pure clean energy into the body through the top of the head.  See it washing through.

Reiki is a form of washing the energy out. The facilitator is using their hands as  a way to draw energy through their hands, magnifying it, and infusing healing energy back into the body. Some people don’t like the Reiki experience. They get agitated instead of relieved. That is because before they can handle more energy they need to remove the stagnant emotional energy that is causing dis-ease.

One day, a client came to me with excruciating pain so unbearable that she couldn’t be touched. I sat next to her and said very matter of factly that she was gang raped in a past life. She just looked at me. It took a moment for me to realize that it wasn’t a past life but this one that she had been violently violated in. As soon as that realization hung in the air between us, I started to cry uncontrollably her tears. She comforted me as I emoted what she wasn’t able to.

It was a secret she had held in the body for many years. After it was released in our session, her physical pain was greatly alleviated.

I had this happen enough times to convince me that emotional pain translates into physical pain eventually if not dealt with. If someone is having physical pain, they need to deal with their emotional issues and clean up their environment as a way of helping themselves. These are a few things that I tell my clients to help them deal with their pain symptoms:

  • Remove yourself from toxic relationships.
  • Turn off the news. Our bodies weren’t meant to filter the onslaught of negative images that bombard us when we watch television.
  • Stop partaking in gossip. Listening to others’ problems.
  • Limit the use of computers and other electrical appliances. They emit low level of electromagnetic radiation.  Taking kelp can help the effects of this.
  • Wear cotton and other natural breathable materials whenever possible. This gives the body a better chance to breathe.
  • Take perfumes out of our home and environment.
  • Take walks in nature, barefoot when possible. Trees  have a magnetic healing property. They draw the negative energy  out of the body into the earth.
  • Listen to uplifting music. Music is fluid like your energy system. Listen to the music that you listened to when you were at a healthy point in your life and let it remind your body what it felt to be good.
  • Be Creative. When we’re creative, our energy is fluid. Pick up an old hobby that you have dropped. It may be helpful in restoring your health.

Take time each day to reflect on positive things and to be grateful for life’s little blessings. It is a physical law as unbending as the law of gravity; that positive attracts more positive. So the more that we acknowledge the good things in our life, the more we facilitate more of the same gushing toward us.

As a doctor, I’ve always insisted that my patients include emotional healing with any chronic condition. Sometimes even acute accidents can be traced back to an emotional or spiritual imbalance. Reiki, BEST and other energy techniques can be magical to draw a “stuck” emotional issue out of the body and leave room for healing to happen. Good blogpost about this, thanks for writing. Those experiencing the symptoms of Fibromyalgia certainly need a team, and this is a huge part of it.

This article was so beautiful. I immediately felt calmed and lifted by just reading your voice. You have a powerful energy for good. I did not realize that trees have that power — or at least, I’d say I didn’t realize it consciously. I am always drawn to trees, hugging them, sitting with my back against them, reaching out to touch a branch or a leaf. And I walk barefoot in the garden whenever I can. Several of the items on your list of suggestions I was already doing… and I feel inspired to do more.

Thank you. 🙂

Great article !
myself i did experience physical pain several times in my life , i did always fight it with my mind & some natural remedies , one of my doctors taught that i am using a kind of yoga , we should lesson to our body and watch his limits of combating pain , that time the person knows the level of his sickness , & it does not mean lot of pain dangerously sick , there are some kind of illness who are silent, this is for me catastrophic more than other painful maladies !

I am so thrilled to hear your love and attunement with trees. They are so wonderful in the way they “walk” their purpose. I am happy if I assisted in soothing you in any way. That is my intent. I also try to help others realize their truth through the audio membership that I Offer. Isn’t it wonderful to recognize truth when it is brought to the forefront?
I am pleased to now know you. Sending you Love and Light.

Thank you for your endorsement. It is greatly appreciated. I admire you assisting your patients to take into account the intangibles in matters of their health. They are fortunate to have found you.
In Love and Light,

I am able to perceive other’s pain so I know it has some visability. My intent is to educate others to a greater sensitivity so that they can limit their own dis-ease as much as possible. Thank you for your thoughtful comment.
With Love and Light!

Right on with this post! Thanks for sharing this with people who may not understand the emotional result of holding in their emotions. This is what I see parents do to their kids without realizing it. By the age of 6, most children have already learned how to hold in their breath, b/c of something that has stifled their emotional release. Thank you!

Oops, physical result of holding in their emotions…LOL

Thanks for sharing Tara. It is a very valid point. A good technique that a parent can do is to help their children decipher their emotions. Unless they are able to process what they are experiencing and categorize it as pain, sadness, fear and even positive emotions of Love and happiness, then emotions get into one big category and it is a confused mess. I believe that is why adults attract dysfunctional relationships. Because the Love they are seeking is mixed up in their dictionary of emotions with fear, pain, loss, drams etc.
Hmmm. I might just have to write a blog post about this.
