Have you ever had an experience where you are stretching your body (like in yoga), or you are having a chiropractic adjustment and you suddenly feel as if an emotional dam has burst and it all pours out of you at once?
Often times just past the pain threshold or a bodily position that has felt like a wall you never push past, lies an invaluable opportunity. The chance to release stored emotion and energy that you have likely been holding on to for a long time. This type of holding on of the non-physical is the most common condition that manifests physical conditions like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, frozen shoulder etc…
As counter intuitive as it may feel at the time of suffering, the most direct route to being free of the physical symptoms you are experiencing is to go into that pain and have an internal conversation with it. To develop a new, different way of relating to it. As opposed to regarding it as unwanted, not welcome, and inconvenient; greet it internally as a welcomed guest that you actually hold compassion for. While being welcoming and compassionate to the pain barrier you have finally physically pushed into, declare to the universe and yourself that you surrender, let go of controlling that part of your body.
When you truly surrender and let go of control in the area of your body where you are experiencing physical pain, and when you welcome it lovingly, that is when the dam will break and all the emotional poison you are holding on to that is causing the condition will pour out. Yes, this might be intense, you may cry, shake, feel fear and/anxious; that’s OK. Feel it all, acknowledge it all as it moves through you and let it go simultaneously, -don’t hold on to it any longer.
Life is not just happiness and roses. When you can embrace both sides of life your body will respond accordingly. ❤
