Pain-mind over matter ?? How
much control do you have over your
it come from and why?
A different way
to look at pain.
How much control do you have over your pain?
Many of us learn and think from traditional
teachings. Pain is one of those teachings. WE
learn at very young ages to ‘tune’ pain out. I see
people saying to their kids “ shake it off, oh
that cant hurt that bad, there is no crying in
baseball”. We learn so very young to
decrease or turn off how we perceive the early
signs of problems, IE: soreness, minor aches,
etc. Pain is the bodies LAST
defense/reminder that there is a problem. Before
pain, our body send many signals that it is not
functioning at it’s
peak. Most people do not even recognize
these signs. Now don’t beat your self up if this
is you…there is hope. You can start paying
attention TODAY to those minor signs/symptoms.
There is another ‘thought’ about pain.
I am re-listening to a book by Louise Hay-the
power is within you…chock full of great in. The
old premise—what we think we manifest. This
includes pain. Many people ‘stuff’ our
feelings-meaning we do not deal with them. Some
ignore feelings, some were not taught how to
express feelings, sometimes it was unsafe to
express feelings, and many others.
The basic idea is that when we do not
express/deal with our feelings-they have to go
somewhere—that is usually into the body. If
you have a chronic pain-it is suggested you have
unresolved emotional feelings. Many of these
are from our past ..childhood or certain years
during our life. I highly recommend reading
this book (or listening as I do when in my car),
this is life changing when we deal with our
feelings/emotions and thoughts. People are
naturally negative so being positive is work on a
daily basis ..but SO worth it if you want a happy
and healthy life. Thought go through our minds
regularly ..be aware of them and what they are
creating in your life is a first step.
I am sure you have heard of affirmations
..have you realized that every thought you think
is actually an affirmation? I had not
recognized this myself until recently. So my
question to you is—What are you thinking daily? Do
they lead you to a good day/life? Do you deal with
your thoughts/emotions or stuff them?
If you have pain-you might take a look at
what emotions/feelings you are or have been
