Transform Your Pain by Rina Thibault
How do you deal with chronic pain? Are you suffering every day? Do you find yourself not enjoying your life as much as you would? Do you find yourself a slave to your pain? Chronic pain has a huge impact on our well-being. It interferes with our sleep, mood, and appetite. It changes how we act towards others. The #1 reason we have a hard time healing from pain is because we’ve allowed pain to be significant in our lives. We begin to embody the pain and it becomes a part of our character; to be without it is losing a sense of who we are. We are so certain that pain is permanent.
On a biological level, pain happens via nociceptors. They send messages to the brain, warning of changes in the body. The feelings of pain come from the brain and not the damaged area.
How can we overcome this?
First, be aware of the place of pain. Where is this space that pain resides in our body? Is it in the low back? Or Neck? Or is it more of a perception? What are the cover-ups we are using? What kind of excuses that we use to avoid change? When we begin to understand excuses then you can begin to uncover the causes of pain. Is it fear or laziness? This might be something you don’t want to admit to.
Second, you have to understand what happens when you don’t follow through with change. Not making a commitment to change impacts negatively on yourself and others. It has an impact on your results, family, friends and psychologically.
Third, re-evaluate your level and desire to change. What steps can you take from here? You can now begin to transform the causes. There are only 2 things you can change: how you feel and your behavior. Your feelings and actions come from your desire to meet your needs. But do you know what you need?
