Recently, I got this pain in my right shoulder blade. It was debilitating. I couldn’t even get out of bed without my back spasming. This was a recurrent pain, so as usual, I tried to ignore it, and get on with business. I hoped it would go away on its own. Of course, it did not. It was trying to send me a message and until I got that message, it wouldn’t leave.
I decided to spend a few meditation sessions in the morning (I meditate for 30 minutes every morning as soon as I wake up) on talking to the pain and asking it why it keeps on coming up again and again. Sounds odd, right? I know, I thought it sounded weird as well. But I was getting sick and tired of being so healthy in other ways, but having this debilitating pain every few months.
Why does it come up again and again?
What is it trying to bring into my life?
Every Pain Has A Message Stored Within
I believe every pain that we experience in our life, physical, or psychological, has a message stored within. Nothing in this universe is random. Everything happens for a reason. Everything!!!
But as busy, stressed out beings, we mostly don’t take the time to step back. We need to ask our pain what it is trying to tell us.
It seems like an odd thing to do, but it is the same as asking our heart what is our truest desire, or asking our mind what it wants for dinner. The questioning of our different selves happens all the time, but some forms are more common than others.
My Conversation With My Pain
So I decided to sit down and chat with my pain. I really leaned into the pain, observing it, merging with it, speaking to it, soothing it, and asking it questions. It was one of the most interesting experiences of my life.
It was as if the pain had taken on a personality of its own, and had come up to talk to me as if it were face-to-face. It formed a physical shape, and merged with my mind to have deep conversations. I got some really interesting thoughts from it, that I used to completely overhaul my life.
It told me how it came up every time I was being inauthentic to my heart, and killing my inner child’s desires and wishes. It tried to warn me through the pain to stop trekking on the path I was, and to take a step back.
Seriously, guys, if you have never done this meditation before, I absolutely recommend it to you.
A Pain Meditation Created For You
I created this pain meditation because I wanted you to experience the joy and abundance and learning that I gained from my conversation with my pain.
I have really learned that I am so ignorant in all matters, especially of the heart. Although, I can think, and form rational thoughts, I don’t really know what I want to do with my life until I ask my heart.
But having been brought up in a very rational family, all of my heart-centred activities were thrown to the side and laughed at. I don’t want to do that to my inner child anymore.
Hopefully, you will be able to use this meditation to connect deeper with your own pain and figure out what is the deeper message that it is trying to get to you. We can get so much wisdom if we just lean into our pain and listen to it, rather than running away from it. Our typical responses won’t work in this new world.
It is time to throw off the reins and step into the new world with fervour and intent.
