Resisting pain making it persists. I want to feel my pain no matter how hard it is!I had a half headache and cold yesterday and moreover I was feeling so nauseated that I had to wake up and throw up!
But at one point I said to myself “You had to stop fighting pain ,feel it”
And I felt it deeply with every fiber in my being and I felt that it still hurts but it doesn’t bother me anymore ,it was like Okay I can handle that and I fell asleep after that
Pain stands for “Pay Attention inside Now” ,if you kept denying,ignoring and suppressing your pain ,guess what? It will keep hurting you like hell and get the best of you but once you stop all the resistance and fighting and embrace it ,something dramatic happens ,it stops to be pain but merely a “physical sensation”
I played this game with myself ,I said “what does this pain inside me feel like?!” And I tried to come up with analogy to best describe it
I found out the more clearer and accurate to describe what it feels like ,the more it helped to handle it even coming up with something weird or funny helps Alot
Becoz if you didnt name your pain and put it in a box,so to speak,it consumes and overwhelms you
It is like this is so huge ,i cannot even begin to describe what is it doing to me
Narrow it down as much as possible and say to yourself “I can handle it” and let your body heals you
I always let taking medications my last option becoz I want to be stronger than my pain and I want to find out the why of it all ,what is my body trying to tell me?
May be I need more sleep or rest or anything else
Deal with the root cause and not the symptom
Whether your pain is physical or emotional ,feel it,embrace it and find the root cause of why you feel this way
This is true healing and you will find yourself more lighter and healthier
