The Truth About Pain

Updated on May 8, 2011

With so many people suffering from pain, it's easy to look for relief through medication. The problem is that pain relief often comes by letting go of pent up emotions that have no where else to go than into the muscles, the organs, and the bones.

Ask any doctor, for instance, about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CTS) or Fibromyalgia. They will tell you that the only class of drugs that seem to treat these conditions are anti-depressants.

This truth clearly reinforces that while the pain is very real and very painful, it is emotionally based.

So what is a person suffering from extreme pain to do?

The most important thing you can do is to actively forgive yourself for the failures or mistakes you've made in your life.

The second most important thing you can do is to actively forgive other for the things they've done to you! Speaking from experience, my step dad was a real jerk to my mother. I endured years of mental and physical abuse under his rule.

But you know what? I forgave him. As a result, I prevented dis-ease from talking hold of my body. I prevented him from "winning" or retaining control over my emotions.

So, start forgiving those who have done you wrong, and pay attention to your pain levels!

I also encourage dancing and yelling (aka singing really loudly) as a way of purging pent up emotions from your body. You don't need to be a good dancer or singer. And no one even needs to be around when you do it! The point is to giving your body permission to let go of the negative manifestation of the negative or super stressful event you've endured in your life.

Try it today and let me know how you feel!

I'll bet that not only will you feel better but you'll burn calories too. While you're at it, pour yourself into providing comfort and empathy to others. This is a great way to keep life in perspective and to remind yourself that while you might have it bad, others have it even worse.
