Finding the source of pain part 1 - Making the decision
There are many causes of pain in the body.
Most people never stop to think about what
could be causing their pain problem. This
could be the result of fear, but more often
than not, it is the result of laziness and pride.
Did You Think That
Your Doctor Had All
Most people that have an ongoing pain problem,
have done everything their conventional
practitioners have advised. They’ve taken all the
toxic drugs they’ve prescribed; and, in some cases,
have had multiple surgeries, to no avail. After they
have faithfully followed medical advice; they find
that this advice has failed them and they still have
pain. Their doctors have run out of answers, and
begin to insult them by treating them like they are
crazy, or like the pain is all in their minds.
1. Why am I afraid to find the source?
2. How far am I willing to go to get relief?
3. Am I willing to make changes in my
lifestyle if necessary?
4. Does my philosophy cause me pain and
if so, am I willing to change it?
Why Are Those
1. Before you waste both time and money, you might as well be
honest with yourself.
2. Most people are too set in their ways and life’s conveniences to
make the necessary changes to eliminate their pain problem.
3. Some people use their pain to stroke their ego and an
obsessive need for attention.
4. What may be required, even in discovering the source of the
pain; may shake your philosophy to the core; and you have to
decide if you are truly open to receive that and get healing.
5. You have to stop being lazy and recognize that your health is
within your control. It is not the responsibility of any doctor or
health care provider, but solely your responsibility.
What Is Required?
Finding the source of your pain takes time and
determination. It requires you to step outside the
box of what you know, and venture into unknown
territories, and untested waters. It requires a
commitment. It takes unconventional measures,
and being open to some things you’ve never heard
before, never thought about or considered before,
or never experienced previously. It may require an
ongoing commitment for maintenance. You can’t
be willing to settle. You cannot set limitations.
Why Is Laziness &
Pride An Issue?
1. They are part of the first 7 that must be dealt with.
2. Pride is at the core of every destructive behavior
3. Laziness gives us an excuse not to do our
homework or to actively seek answers.
4. In finding answers, one has to look at the whole
person and the place to start is the spirit.
5. If you are spiritually blinded you will not see with
clarity; you will miss something an important piece of
the puzzle that is causing the pain.
When I’m Committed,
What Is Next?
The first thing that is needed is a self examination.
Assess your lifestyle to see what may be causing
a blockage. What is causing you stress? When
you think about certain things, do you feel pain?
Take some time to just sit alone, without any
media; but maybe some soothing music, and
Thinking Is Hard Work
Most people rush through life, and never
stop and take time to simply think because:
1. They claim they are too busy
• They really are afraid to be alone
2. They claim they don’t have time
• They are afraid of what they might
discover about themselves
The Place To Start
If you don’t stop to think, you cannot begin to find
the source, because it is always hidden in your past.
It is hidden even in things you never ever
contemplated. If you have had an injury, there was a
previous condition of the muscles that predicated
the measure of the impact your body suffered as a
result of the injury, and was the catalyst that dictated
the level of your injury. You must remember your
history because your body, your very cells carry
these memories that need to be unlocked.
Document Your Pain History
Get a notebook or diary. If necessary, work
your way backwards. Write the most recent
pain problems or injury, and continue back in
time from that point, filling in the blanks on
every period in your life. Write down any pain
you may have experienced, no matter how
insignificant it may seem. Also, add any
relevant traumatic or stress-filled events of the
same time period. Are any patterns emerging?
Health & Pain History
If you had your health records from every hospital, doctor
and/or care or treatment center in every town or city you’ve ever
been in, you might be able to put some pieces together.
However, most of us don’t have access to all that information.
Nevertheless, those medical records will not have any
information on the pain or sickness for which no medical
treatment was sought. But your body remembers. This is why
you must look within. Look at each pain problem as it came up.
What were you experiencing at the time? What were you doing?
Was there a major event in that timeframe? Was the pain
something you felt over a period of time, but thought was
insignificant? For example: When you told your mom about
knee pain as a teen, was it addressed or dismissed? Could that
pain then be related to the torn meniscus injury you suffered
years later as an athlete?
