How Can You Use Pain For Your Benefit?

By Inna Segal

Pain is defined in the dictionary as a symptom of some physical hurt or disorder, emotional distress; a fundamental feeling that people try to avoid, annoyance: something or someone that causes trouble; a source of unhappiness.

People experience many different types of pain. I have heard several times from my clients that they are far more able to handle the physical pain then the mental or emotional pain. However, it does not matter what pain we are presented with, whether it be emotional distress, avoidance, depression, lack or loss of someone who was close to us or spiritual disconnection; there is an opportunity for transformation.

Whatever pain we have, especially the one that keeps re-occurring, is trying to teach us about ourselves. This pain is there to bring our awareness to the areas in our lives which we have been either avoiding or suppressing.

For many people, their pain becomes a catalyst for change. After all, the majority of people would say that they prefer pleasure over pain. This means that when they feel good they often don't have a lot of motivation to grow, question and explore.

I have many clients who tell me that they will read spiritual books or books on health when they are facing challenges and abandon them when they feel good. I know that I would not have become involved in healing if I was not experiencing excruciating pain. I like to share with others, that there was no where to go but within. No one could tell me what was going on and I knew that unless I found the answers within I would not be able to heal. As it turned out I discovered more than I could imagine. Not only did I learn how to heal myself but I also stumbled upon a large aspect of my life's work and passion.

When I am teaching Intuitive Healing courses, I encourage people to check in with their body and discover what they can learn from each experience. Thus, life becomes richer and more whole. While sometimes Western Medicine, which can be valuable, encourages us to blindly rely on tablets and someone else's judgment to heal, intuitive healing allows our bodies own wisdom and intuitive ability to come forth. It encourages the body to heal naturally by releasing the dense energy which blocks connection.

Think of it this way. When you feel connected to someone or something, you can communicate, listen and take action easier, quicker and more effectively then if you feel blocked, angry or disconnected. Your body, mind and spirit are the same. When there is disconnection, there is a blockage and a rift in communication. This creates pain and disorder in your experience of life because the messages are not getting through.

This means we need to pay attention and connect while at the same time discern what we buy into from others.

Everything in your body is connected, whatever you see, hear, sense and experience either helps the body to connect and run smoother or to put the breaks on and create havoc. For example, a woman who keeps hearing that after 35 she is getting too old to have children will often create aging or degeneration in her ovaries. Just as someone who has a fear of what will happen in the future will create degeneration in their eyes. If you think that someone you work with gives you headaches, you will eventually create headaches. Of-course these examples are simple and obvious but the mind/body/spirit is simple and will give us what we keep affirming.

The only way we can become empowered and learn from pain is by being aware, paying attention and developing a communication with our inner self. You would be surprised how many realizations and insights you will receive if you simply tune in, pay attention and ask.

A simple exercise you can do is: write down in which areas you are experiencing pain or blockage. Then start to explore how this physical or emotional pain is connected to what you say, what you think, what you feel and what you believe.

The first step to pain relief is to recognize what is causing you pain on different levels. For example, I had a client who had intense back pain to the point where she could not walk. When I tuned into her energy I felt like this was an emotional problem. The doctors told her that she would need surgery. When I questioned her about what was happening at home, she told me that people in her family, in particular her sister were taking advantage of her and she was taking responsibility for everything and everyone. This weight was so heavy it was literally breaking her back.

When I suggested that she may stop and tell her family that they had to take care of themselves, she told me that she did not think it would change anything. However, the next week she came into my office walking without any trouble, free of pain. She shared with me that initially she ignored my advice and the pain got worse, but a few days later she decided to give it a try. At the end of the day her back felt a lot better. Within a few days she could walk without pain.

Once you are aware of what is causing you pain, you can take action. You can either

"Start to view this problem in a different way

"Learn the lesson from it

"Take action to change it - changing thinking, behavior, clearing energy, healing

"Start communicating differently
