I am fascinated and motivated, throughout my work, to assist my clients in understanding the purpose and healing of emotional “pain”. Eckhart Tolle says, “There is such a thing as old emotional pain living inside you. It is an accumulation of painful life experience that was not fully faced and accepted in the moment it arose. It leaves behind an energy form of emotional pain. It comes together with other energy forms from other instances, and so, after some years, you have a “pain body”, an energy entity consisting of old emotion.” In a nutshell, the pain body is a physical and nonphysical repository of all painful experiences, beliefs, limitations and traumas you have experienced in this lifetime.
All ancient medicines understood that the pain body exists within the cellular structure of the body/mind, as well as the energetic fields within the nervous system. The denser the pain body the more heaviness exists within our emotional reactions and the more physical pain, up to and including dis-ease, happens with the body. I have come to understand that the pain body is an internal “GPS” system, providing highly intelligent feedback about the roots of the original trauma suffered by my clients. Following emotional feedback, and healing the original trauma or unresolved pain, allows me to assist the client to restore states of wholeness and ease. I see pain as a portal to potential, not as the enemy, but the natural and organic feedback system that our innate intelligence uses to support our healing, our evolution and growth.
Pain is not easy, nor something we would choose for ourselves and those we love, but, my life has proven to me that my own pain has been my greatest teacher, healer and most trusted ally in living a life beyond my wildest childhood dreams! Pain is not your address, nor the permanent place where we live and identify ourselves; it is a door to repressed potentials and true liberation from dysfunctional patterns of living. Leverage your pain and catapult yourself to new vistas of living! The only way out is through!
