Why some people heal FAST and others struggle (and how to become one of the fast self-healers)

By May 6, 2019Healing

Have you ever wondered why some people heal really fast? Maybe you have a friend or follow an athlete who gets injured and is back in the game super fast.

Are you one of those people who heal fast? Do you resonate with what I share in this video? If so, please comment below. I’d love to hear your thoughts, and if you have encouragement for someone struggling definitely share your wisdom.

I’ve been in private practice working with people in pain since 2008. I’ve seen a lot during that time, and there has been one consistent theme that became more and more obvious to me as the years passed.

The people who get out of pain fast all have one thing in common: They are in INTEGRITY with themselves mind/body/spirit.

They are not perfect people. They are not lucky or special or kissed by god, any more than you.

Integrity takes courage.

Integrity takes commitment.

Integrity requires that you pay attention and not coast through life.

Integrity requires PRESENCE.

Integrity is personal development or personal growth in action.

Integrity means you are living in alignment with your HIGHEST values. Your external behavior matches your internal behavior. You speak your truth. You are in the right career for you, the right relationship, you’re living in the right town or country.

It’s important to keep in mind that this changes throughout our lives. What worked for us within a relationship or in a career a year ago may not now. We must allow our lives to reflect our evolution throughout life to remain in integrity.

Why does this play a role in pain?

Physical pain that has a purely physical root cause is EASY to eliminate.

People of integrity experience pain or injury, but the cause is physical rather than psychological or existing in the nervous system at the subconscious level. So when an effective physical solution is used, they get out of pain fast.

People who are OUT of integrity somewhere on the mind/spirit side will likely struggle to get out of pain. Perhaps, deep inside, you believe life is suffering. Then in a weird way – if you’re in pain – you’re actually in integrity with yourself! However, your conscious mind probably doesn’t believe life is suffering and pain is the way to go. So the first step in creating integrity is bringing into CONSCIOUSNESS anything living in your subconscious that could be manifesting as pain.

Please check out my videos on nervous system patterns, releasing emotion from the body and the psychology of pain to dive deeper and learn more. This is a HUGE topic, and one I will return to over and over.

For now – please share an aha by commenting below! And if you’re feeling brave, share whether you believe you’re in integrity or not. And if not, what could you do to get into integrity? I read every comment and I promise to come talk to you!

  • Elisha…Excellent. Yes!!! I agree 100%.

    And, although I know, live, and teach these same concepts, and principles, I have rarely linked what you call “integrity” (I call it “alignment” and I believe we’re talking about the same thing) to the sorts of physical pain you’re talking about here. But, of course, you’re right. No doubt.

    It’s just that people aren’t coming to me for physical pain relief and I don’t usually (my bad there) get it to that subject with them. They come to me more for everyday personal/life’s problem solving, everyday business problem solving, and things like business, personal, and self-growth aimed towards achieving your life’s purpose, reaching your full potential, and improving your life and lifestyle.

    But, you’ve reminded me to at least ask about physical pain/trauma too. Because we know that we’re all individually holistic in the sense that everything in and about us is connected. And that life and lives and the Earth and the Universe are all holistically connected, too. So thank you for sharing this and for knocking me over the head to remember to at least ask and talk to my clients, friends, family – whoever – about their physical goings-on, too. It’s so important and all related to your “integrity”/my “alignment.” Beautifully done. As always.

    And, what you’re calling “integrity,” (which I love the way and will probably steal….whoops, I mean borrow… from you from time-to-time, I call “alignment.” I’m pretty sure we’re talking about the same thing.

    Good for thought. I feel in integrity with my belief in my partner, and that his occasional raged will diminish as the planetary vibrations rise. I am attempting to learn not to be effected, though each time, about every 6 weeks, I decide to leave. My excuse I haven’t the m and,?orbthe energy due to pain to get out and look for somewhere else.

    Love this Elisha 💜 so true. I’ve been good at pretending everything was fine since early childhood and that continued into adulthood of course. Even in severe pain, I’d put on my happy-smiley face to others. It’s like now my body won’t let me NOT live in integrity and, to the point of your video, I’m finally getting better!! So grateful for you and your insights 🙏🏻🦋

  • Karen Ngatai says:

    This totally resonates with me… thank you for reaffirming my belief in the need for holistic well being & what a call “inner peace” ✨

  • Sasha says:

    I really appreciate you sharing this theory on one’s pain correlated to one’s lack of integrity or not being honest with oneself. So fascinating. I’ve wondered this a lot in general in my research and through my own healing journey! Mine has been mostly emotional- from time to time I get bodily pain…but I’ve slowly gotten better and better about speaking about certain things out loud or journaling. I do get reoccurring pain in my hands and my elbows. Your fascia release video on biceps and forearms has truly been a huge game changer and I am so grateful for this. The only problem is it often comes back. I am still not sure what trauma this pain is rooted from but i think it will reveal itself eventually especially with your extra encouragement you deliver in this video! Thanks Alisha! Absolutely love and appreciate your work and presence!

    • Hi Sasha – I’m glad this feels helpful to you, and the fascia release also! Regarding the hand and elbow pain – sometimes it’s about hitting the exact right spot in your forearms or brachialis or biceps fascia. You could be of off by a quarter inch and not get the result you’re after, so take the time to hunt around and make sure you’ve found THE best spots! And if that doesn’t do it – go upstream. Chest, deltoids, SCMs and scalenes (you can search the blog for those). Thank you for sharing!

        Elisha – thanks for this, especially the loving challenge to those of us in camp 2 to get really honest about living out-of-integrity with ourselves and in our lives. Like you, I’ve been a really good pretender, but my body knows better. What you shared from your personal experience about realizing you were utterly traumatized resonates deeply and boosts my courage and determination to look inside with compassionate, frank honesty and admit what’s up. I also just watched you video on Releasing the Past to Make Room for a New You (2/15/19) and wow, does it complement this one … my heart is full of gratitude to you.

        • You’re so welcome Sally! Thank you for sharing how it’s impacting you. I think the important thing is to realize we’re all messy, no one is perfect, we all make mistakes and the healthiest way through it all is just that radical candor with ourselves, forgiving ourselves and making new choices in the NOW. Love you!

          • Sally says:

            We’re all messy and imperfect — that’s the beauty of being human. You’re right about the importance of radical candor, balanced with self-compassion and self-forgiveness. Love this Elisha and love you too.
