Do you BELIEVE you can heal? Do you believe you deserve health? Adventure? Feeling at home in your body?
While I definitely believe pain is part of life, and this will always be true (until we outgrow the need for pain to learn and evolve) that doesn’t mean staying in pain your whole life. Pain is an opportunity to dig deep and find out what you’re made of.
If you’re currently struggling with pain, the #1 most important ingredient for you to heal faster is the unwavering belief that you can and WILL.
I’m not suggesting you bulldoze over your fears and try to mind over matter this. What I’m suggesting is that you get really honest with yourself. I can’t tell you how many people want their pain to go away, but at the same time their mind is made up that they’ve “tried everything” and “nothing has worked.” This is always an indication to me that something else is going on.
Your body might actually be trying to alert you to a subconscious (or conscious) belief that is creating a less than ideal life situation for you. If you don’t believe you can heal, then chances are you also don’t believe you can feel good. Why?
Most often this comes down to patterns that were created in childhood. Your nervous system is running a loop of fear and danger, believing danger is ever-present – which means you need to be on high alert, rather than relaxed, confident, trusting.
The solution here can be complex and individual, but the first step is admitting the truth.
Try journaling about this, talk to a trusted friend or find someone (a professional) who understand the psychology of pain. I believe you can heal! I believe there are no limits to how GOOD you can feel. I also believe your body is reflecting to you something critical that needs to change IN ORDER for you to heal and feel good.
