Let’s talk about PAIN … What is pain really trying to tell you?
Have you noticed that your body constantly communicates to you, telling you how it feels and what it needs? Pain is, in essence, the frustration of your body screaming for you to finally listen when you haven't been paying attention to how you feel. Physical discomfort is the most effective way of getting your attention!
The thing about pain … it rivets your attention and demands to be heard! Explore how your body talks to you
Years ago I broke my leg in a horseback riding accident, and had to spend time convalescing. It was the most excruciating pain I had ever experienced.
After weeks of on-going pain and discomfort, I noticed how tired and despondent I began to feel. I had already been enduring months of deeply disturbing conflict, sabotage and resistance within my family, and a community project in which I was deeply vested, and now the physical pain seemed more than I could bear
Pain had disrupted my ability to sleep, to enjoy simple pleasures, to make good judgments, and to concentrate on work. Through continually tensing myself to resist the pain, it had also disrupted the functions of my entire body
Months after the accident I attended an empowerment workshop and had to fill out a detailed questionnaire about my life, my family, and my past. Painful memories were forced into mind. The more detailed the questions and information I had to provide, the more tired, achey and despondent I became. It even took effort to breathe and to concentrate
I began to notice some startling similarities to how I physically felt after breaking my leg. It felt identical to the tiredness and despondency that had overwhelmed me after experiencing physical pain for so long
That’s when I realized the broken leg was actually a symptom of my own unexpressed deep emotional despair and frustration. Pain was the consequence of unresolved intense negative feelings, resentment, and frustration about a situation I could not change or fix
There are 7 psychological causes of pain:
ANGER ~ RESISTANCE ~ GRIEF ~ RESENTMENT ~ REJECTION ~ UNFORGIVENESS ~ SELF PUNISHMENT
When any of these negative emotions are maintained as a state of mind for extended periods, the ongoing release of harmful neuropeptides will result in degeneration, inflammation and pain. Negative emotions are meant to be felt for short bursts of 90 seconds. Negative feelings alert you to something that needs your immediate attention and resolution in order to achieve either justice, security, respect, belonging, self esteem, personal growth, or serenity. You either determine what you need to do to rectify the situation, or determine that there is nothing that can be resolved and let it go or walk away
After 90 seconds, it becomes voluntary to continue to feel a negative emotion, to rehash your feelings, possible solutions and possible challenges. Negative emotions hang on when your personal value system (personal life rules) causes you to make false judgments about yourself, people, and situations that prevent you from achieving a satisfactory resolution. Negative feelings distort your perspective and get in the way of letting things flow through your life to dissolve naturally. You take it personally when others hurt or harm you, instead of understanding that, just like you, they are just seeking their own happiness and aren't aware of the harm they have caused
Accidents or injuries really aren't random accident. They result from emotional pain weakening a particular area of your body. A body that is out of balance will be more subject to injury at its weak spots. For example, stress causes a build-up of adrenaline in the neck and shoulder area. You may be under low level stress for a long time, and think you are handling it. Suddenly, you have a car accident. Stress has already weakened the neck area. The sudden fear and trauma of an auto accident sends even more adrenaline to the neck and shoulders, resulting in pain and inflammation in that area--what is known as 'whiplash' injury
Or, you may regularly lift heavy objects in your job without a problem. But, lately you have been having marital discord and not feeling supported by your spouse. The corresponding neuropeptides that result from feeling emotionally unsupported tend to gravitate to the lower spine. You lift something well within your range of strength, but suddenly rupture a disc in your lumbar vertebrae, or develop a hernia
Everyone carries emotional baggage to varying degrees--painful childhood memories, grief over the loss of a loved one, the devastation of a marriage or relationship break up, the trauma of physical or sexual violation. Who hasn't suffered rejection, betrayal, hardship, failure, shame, longing, guilt, injustice, loss of self-esteem, or sorrow at some time?
It's easier to believe there is a way around experiencing sorrow, that you can avoid pain and lose nothing of the fullness and joy of living. But, it takes a lot more energy and body resources to store anguish than it does to confront it
Emotional avoidance creates physical avoidance, which causes you to lose your physical connection to your body. That’s why you instinctively convert emotional suffering from fear, anger, guilt, loneliness, rejection, and helplessness into physical pain. Or you emotionally shut down and become depressed
Pain makes you acutely aware of your body and your physicality. Pain keeps you from disowning or ignoring the part of you that you want to reject. See our transformative self-healing essences to help alleviate pain
But, harbouring negative feelings for any length of time is no different than taking poison. Damaging neuropeptides are released in your body in response to negative feelings such as anger, resentment, bitterness, sorrow, self pity, loneliness, anxiety, stress, stubbornness, resistance to change, and fear. Enlightened Feelings living essence fusions can help to dissolve and overwrite negative feelings, cancelling out the harmful negative neuropeptide release to allow you to feel lighter, happier and unencumbered by your past.

It's easy to see why opioids become addictive. They provide blissful escape from physical pain, which allows you to escape suppressed emotional pain
But, opioids don't resolve emotional pain. They simply mask it. When you stop using pain-killers, you are left wide open to face your emotional pain again. And so the addiction loop continues ...
That is one of the reasons why addiction is so hard to treat successfully, and why it often indicates a deeper problem. According to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, “novel pain treatments based on the targeting of neuropeptide action are going to replace - or, at least, complement - the current use of opiate drugs, leading to increased efficacy and reduced adverse effects, in the not-too-distant future.” (published 2010) That is exactly what our living flower essences have been doing—since 2012!
