About pain

Spiritual meaning of pain

The Universal Intelligence teaches that physical pain occurs to let us know that we are in emotional or spiritual pain, and that we have unrecognized or unresolved issues. Also, for some who are unable to express their emotional needs, telling others that they are feeling physical pain is the only way to get some much-needed attention (even if it’s not for the right reason).

 

Spiritual component of the different types of pain

Dull ache – Longing to be comforted. Unresolved emotional/spiritual pain and/or sorrow. Holding onto false, hurtful beliefs

Sharp, stabbing – Signal to show that one just had a negative thought, attitude or emotion (e.g. anger, envy, judgment, etc.)

Stiffness – Rigid thinking and unwilling to look at other options or make any changes

Meditation and the fine art of asking questions

sense-2326348_960_720

Problem

Many people give up on meditating, claiming that they never receive answers to their questions.

Analysis

This can happen if:

  • The wording is confusing
  • Several questions are asked in the same breath, along with every possible answer to each of them
  • No question is asked, just making a statement and waiting for the Universe to agree or disagree

Solution

Try to think like a reporter and:

  • Consider exactly what information we want
  • Write out or type the question
  • No need to explain why we want to know
  • Use as few words as possible and use simple, clear, straightforward phrasing
  • Ask one question at a time and wait for the answer before moving on to the next question

Our spiritual diet

spoon-2426623_960_720

Our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, beliefs and desires form our spiritual diet. We may not hear them, but make no mistake – they are incredibly powerful. “Eating” the same old thoughts every single day produces the same old reality every day … and we wonder why nothing ever seems to change.

We have the power to change ourselves. We have the power to change the world.

Here’s a sample of some common thought patterns that can all be changed:

Change ourselves – change the world

butterflies-1271450_960_720

The problem is not that we don’t know how to be good people … it’s that we find ways to justify our choosing not to be. We do this, and so, of course, our leaders do too. We cannot expect them to behave righteously if we ourselves are unwilling to do so; that would be hypocritical of us.

An end to war, poverty and starvation will not be possible so long as greed for power, money and influence are tolerated, admired and rewarded.

We have a long way to go, and waiting to change until our leaders do so is futile. The profound changes that are needed must start at grass roots level or we will be doomed to endlessly repeat history’s tragedies, on an ever-greater scale.

Healthcare

All this talk about health care in the United States has given me a new appreciation for Tommy Douglas. Mr. Douglas was a Canadian politician who worked for publicly funded health coverage for all Canadians.

Thanks largely to his vision, health care in Canada is a right. This right is not without cost; it is paid for with tax dollars.

Our system is not perfect by any means, but is a work-in-process. I believe that as more people resolve their inner child issues, the high incidence of chronic diseases will decrease thereby reducing reliance on medicine to fix our ills. Think of the billions of dollars and needless suffering of patients (and their loved ones) that could be spared.

Using our words

speech-bubbles-305824_960_720

Why is violence as a form of expression acceptable? Whatever happened to using our words to express our displeasure with someone or something? Are we lazy? Or ignorant? Or terrified? Or hopeless that we’ll be heard? Do we feel justified in treating others as less than human? (Shades of political regimes built on the low self-esteem of its leaders.)

How can we expect young children to express themselves verbally rather than violently, if we fail to model that behaviour in front of them (the height of hypocrisy)? Yet society begins with children.

Praying or meditating for world peace is pointless, so long as violence is a viable option. For it to become a reality, we must use our words instead of striking out in violence. Society will eventually change, but until violence has been outlawed, a strong defense will be necessary.

Changing society is in our hands – it begins with us.

Spiritual component of Spite

anger-477044_960_720

Spite is an act of harming self in the hope that the one(s) who hurt us will notice and then feel guilty for what they did.

Sounds like: “I refuse to enjoy life or be successful because of the way you treated me”.

Spiritual effects of the pattern: Choosing to live one’s life in misery or deprivation; returning a cherished gift to the giver; thoughts of suicide or abandonment.

Physical effects of the pattern: Heart/lung issues, high cholesterol, digestive or nose problems, sinusitis.

How to change the pattern: Visit Section 3 of my website and learn to meditate to find the root cause of the behaviour. No fees. No ads. No membership. Ever.
