Pain can show up physically, emotionally and even as numbness, stuckness or a not-flow in certain creative endeavors.

Though pain feels anywhere from brick-wall-like to a sinking feeling to a little irritation, practices exist to face it with a bit more lightness (and even humor). The practices that truly bring greater freedom include a conscious integration of the body, mind and spirit. In some ways, the integration of these aspects of you involve a leap of faith to come down to earth. Reconciling the different parts of you isn’t always easy but it is the pathway to create a life that you love.

Freedom is not about being perfect, nor is it about erasing all pain at once. Being present for conscious integration allows space for you to have:
greater comfort with your journey to feeling better
more permission to transform pain into growth
commitment to deepen into lasting change

Presence is you being the witness and you choosing to receive outside support as is helpful for you.

We’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

  • I find that when I am in pain I am usually holding someone else’s energy. Thank goodness I have tools to release energy and return it to that person. Sometimes I forget though, or I am too caught up in the pain to remember that I have tools at all!

    • Right on Alison!! We can’t process other people’s energy so it does end up sitting as pain in our space. I too am so grateful for my ability to become aware of energy and release what isn’t mine to fix or heal!

    I have really been looking at and working with how much of my energy and effort it takes to resist and hold back love and avoid pain. Really how much space for creativity and to hear guidance and receive when I actually am courageous enough to embrace and go through the pain, releasing it (and how much less and shorter it is than my fear of it was). I am surprised at how much there is so much more to joy and energy to work from once I free up that block.
