There is a way to relate to the energy of pain that is far more effective than resistance and blame – one that increases our abilities and gives clear meaning to our experience.
“Once one has committed to wholeness, all that is not that will step forward to be healed” says the Mystic.
Whether your own experience is with physical, emotional or psychic pain, you can learn new skills and open to insights that offer a clear framework for transformation. If that sounds too esoteric, just think of an ice cube melting into a puddle of water. It is not a mystery because we can observe and understand it.
All energy that is frozen in time and space can be refreshed with the warmth of new light, and that includes pain.
The gift of pain is insight, and we shift the paradigm of mindless pain relief to one of keeping the baby while throwing out the bath water when we explore the nature of insight and what we know without knowing. In this way we come away with new and powerful insights for yourself and the world around you.
This is the essence of trauma therapy no matter how big or how small the event. No one is left out of the grace of relief – it’s built into the framework as part of your energetic anatomy.
With the subject of pain we are called to explore our own resistance to change, to truth and to power.
The Saint Francis Serenity Prayer is a guide for entering the territory:
God grant me the courage to change what I can, the serenity to accept what I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Blessings to all –
