3 ways to Stay In Pain

Number One – “Ignore the pain”:

Pain is always a message that something is wrong.

If everything is OK structurally with your body then there is something in your life that needs addressing.

However, what we tend to do is mask the message with Pain killers and carry on with life.

Of course there is a place for Pain Relief medication, but should it be part of your daily routine for the rest of your life?

I suggest, using Pain as a message from your unconscious that something in your life is not how you want it to be!

Number Two – “Keep doing the same thing”:

If you want a different result then you are going to have to take a different approach.

If you are in Chronic Pain then keep looking for different options / alternative therapies, until you find something that works for you.

Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results” – Albeit Einstein

Number Three – “Put yourself last”:

This is a great way to stay in Pain!

Often we put others needs before our own.

But in reality to be in a good position to help others, we must first be well and healthy ourselves.

So invest in your health!

It is so easy to make excuses e.g. lack of time or money.

However, we are talking about our health, the most precious gift!

Everything is affected by health, so prioritise it above everything.

Tony Robbins Quote

Time doesn’t heal shit!

Personally I believe that the saying ‘time is the greatest healer’ is a total myth.

The truth is that time does not heal, but taking action and working through stuff does!

To prove my point, I recently read a case study about a 76 year old woman who was having hypnosis for anxiety.

The skilled hypnosis gently regressed the lady back to the start of her problems, where she was just 4 years old, being abused by a family member.

Suddenly the lady became overwhelmed with intense emotion and felt how she would have as a 4yr old.

This lady had never experienced these emotions as a girl; she had instead frozen them and locked them deep into her unconscious mind and went through life, avoiding certain situations and having unexplained physical symptoms.

So time did not make a single bit of difference to this lady’s healing of her trauma!

As children we often don’t have the resources to deal with and work through extreme negative emotions. However, as adults we have a responsibility towards our own health and well-being.

As the famous psychotherapist Nathaniel Branden said:

The first step toward change is awareness, the second step is acceptance.

Moving forward I invite you to speak to your loved ones, friends, colleagues or even a stranger about something that is bothering you . . . .

Because guess what?

Life’s too short to carry around unnecessary baggage.

Try it, I guarantee you will feel lighter.
