5 Things to Remember When Your Pain Levels Are Jacked Up

1. Nothing in life is stagnant — especially you.

Molecules are bouncing around all the time. Access that energy and participate in it — actively encouraging the shape-shifting to move in the direction of healing. Keep in mind that old cells are dying and new cells are being born in your body, every second. Get in the driver’s seat and instruct the new cells to pattern themselves on healthy, happy cells. Lead the takeover in your body.

2. Devotion and persistence pay off.

A drop of water can erode a mountain over time. So can your dedication to healing transform your body. When your thoughts veer onto a negative track, discipline yourself to bring them back to healing and transformation. Visualize yourself well. If that’s too overwhelming, visualize a part of yourself well. As 1970s band Journey says, “Don’t stop believing.”

3. The body knows how to heal, and your body wants to heal.

Your body may have been thrown out of whack and may need some help getting its groove back. You may need an injection of other people’s loving energy or good nutrntion or safe massages or some other method to help get your body back in alignment. Keep looking for your portal to wellness. Your body is waiting.

4. You never know what’s around the corner.

True, putting yourself “out there” is far more challenging when you’re in agony. But the more you can work your edge and make yourself available to the magic of the Universe, the more chance you’ll turn a corner and be surprised by a solution you never could have imagined.

5. There are people who care.

You may be surrounded by assholes at the moment, but there are people out there who do truly care and who may be able to help you. Keep looking — on the internet, in books, on CDs, at Meetup groups, in pain patient support groups, at religious services, or wherever else you feel inspired to conduct your search. Don’t settle for substandard care — from healthcare practitioners, friends, or family. Keep looking until you find healthy love.

Hey Loolwa,
I certainly agree that having hope is certainly important.  It’s easy to get wrapped up in a funk, especially when your body is sending signals that it’s not well.  For me, recalling these swings (from flare to wellness) really helps to remind me there’s hope for a better day.
