Pain vs Harm

Have you ever had someone ask you not to hurt yourself?  You may have the best of intentions and yet somehow it often happens.  A misstep, a slip, or even just misjudging where the edge of something is suddenly rearranges the priorities of your day.  Hopefully, it’s a momentary event, mixed more with surprise than actual pain.  My work involves understanding how we attract those situations to us, and how we evaluate pain vs harm.

Perhaps, it would be best to define pain and harm first.  What are they?  Pain, literally, is a sensation your body uses to inform you that there is actual or potential for damage to the tissues of your body.  That means, your body will actually sometimes scare you into not doing something because it’s afraid you might hurt yourself!  If you’ve ever been stretching and encountered pain unexpectedly, you may have experienced this.  Harm, then is when damage actually occurs.  Harm, also, is an inference to negativity vs positive, damage vs healing.  In other words, it may hurt to tear off a scab but if it allows the infection beneath to be cleansed then it likely has not been harmful.  If, on the other hand, you twist your own arm behind your back just to see how much pain you can handle, you are actually harming yourself.

Unfortunately, most of your life isn’t spent in such straightforward situations.  As a human, you have both a conscious and a subconscious mind.  Your consciousness only has a tiny amount of control over the energy exuded by you as an entity.  This is why I often remind people that the Universe is never not listening.  It hears you when you think about not wanting to harm yourself, but it also hears you when you think about your likes, your dislikes, your worries, your concerns and every other thought.   

What it comes down to, then, is understanding that you are always attracting to you the reality which you best understand.  For individuals who have suffered tremendously, they understand on a very conscious level, issues of safety and security that penetrate all the way to their core.  It has never failed to amaze me how we can end up twisted in knots (physically, mentally and even spiritually) simply trying to avoid pain.  You can literally harm yourself avoiding pain.

There is a wonderful side of this equation, then.  As a Healer, I get to work with the most amazing people.  Together, we delve into the pains, the lives and the experiences and we find the patterns of choice, of mindset and even of illness.  In understanding you find possibility to do things in ways that heal instead of harm.  In awareness you find the choice of action.  In opening up to yourself, you are given the ability to become the greatest possibilities of being yourself.

I hope this gives you a moment of thought.  No matter what your situation, there is always a place to begin or enhance your healing.  I would be honored to work with you!

Perspective creates choice

Have you ever had a time when you felt completely overwhelmed?  Most of us have.  Some people spend most of their lives feeling this way.  You see, Overwhelm is one of the emotional family of Fear and Fear is a bully!  The beautiful thing about bullies is that they are predictable.

Overwhelm  loves to blow everything out of perspective, so that you are practically forced to focus only on what it wants you to.  Therefore, the defense against overwhelm is to allow your focus to move and change!  You pick what you want to look at, where you want your mind to center.  This is one of the wonderful places where understanding that the body, mind and spirit are interconnected can be so amazingly helpful.

Imagine, for a moment, that you are feeling overwhelmed about your day.  It’s morning, you are lying in bed and what you have on your schedule suddenly looms over you like a mugger getting ready to club you!  Unfortunately, far to many of us have been there, and the answer is never really allowed to involve pulling the covers over your head and fall back to sleep.  This time, you decide to take matters into your own hands.  You take a couple of deliberate breaths.  You take a few minutes and focus completely on the body, leaving the mind almost out of the equation.  In the bed, you stretch, gentle stretches designed to bring blood flow to the muscles and awaken them with care.  By the time you are done with your stretching, you are standing up and out of bed.  Autopilot may have begun to kick in and you may already find your morning routine.  Here’s the kicker…

How do you feel?  Somewhere in among the physical routines, your mental patterns reset.  You found something else to focus on and it allowed the tide of overwhelm to pass over you and be gone.  

Emotions are tricky things, and they have valid lessons and information for you.  Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t want you to ignore your emotions.  I don’t want you to suppress your emotions.  I do want you to remember that you can choose how and when to work with them.  You are a capable person and you have extraordinary instincts.  You have the capacity to understand yourself in deep and meaningful ways.

Life is relative to your perspective.  Give yourself a chance to change the focus and create the life and the health you deserve. 

We all need help on our Healing Journeys.  I would be honored to be a part of yours!

Body manifestations…

What would you say if I asked you what the connection was between experience and manifestation?  For many, it seems a rather confusing question.  After all, you may not realize that you have a lifetime’s experience manifesting reality!

Your body is an amazing creation, one that naturally takes in what is going on in your mind and in your spirit and uploads it in to the programs of your body.  Don’t believe me?  Every time you speak, you have manifested a thought into this world!  Every time you move, you have manifested force into this world.  Every time you take a thought and make it an action, you have manifested change into this world!

Perhaps a better question would be, how can you make better control what you manifest in your life!  Most of us have goals and dreams, things that we want to possess or to experience.  You probably have a perfect vacation stored somewhere deep in your mind.  You may even conceived of your ideal house or safe-haven.  Whatever you do, whoever you are, your goals and dreams are specific to you.  Your manifestations are just as much a product of what you dream about as what you worry about.  Unfortunately, most of us spend far more time worrying about the negative and therefore we attract that energetically into our lives!  

Now, take a moment and think about the various pains and discomforts of your body.  What if all of those signals are messages waiting for you to understand that the body is talking to you?  What if your body has been trying to let you know where it’s manifesting the pain and the sadness and the confusion.  Why would it do that?  Well, if it doesn’t tell you what’s going on in there, you can’t consciously affect change! Think about your personal issues.  Ask yourself how you feel emotionally about one of them.  Let it get beyond the first answer.  You may be sick and tired of being sick and tired, but why did your body attract a situation where you needed to be sick and tired?  Perhaps you haven’t been taking care of yourself and your body is trying to protect what little resources you have left.  Perhaps your boundaries have been over-run and your body is trying to make more and more buffer (fat cells) or armor (stiffness) to keep you safe.

Every experience in your life is written into your body.  Chronic health concerns, whether they are mental, emotional, physical or spiritual often have a link with old experiences which need healing.  When you take the time to pay attention to what you are manifesting, you can take control and choose joy, health and happiness.

For those of you who are excited about trying a new approach to your health and your life, I invite you to schedule a session today!

Light’s Blessings to you all,
