No one really likes to experience pain or fear. And emotions or feelings like anxiety, sadness, loneliness, boredom, and other similar “friends,” as I like to call them, are not our favorite either, right?
So why are they all here? Have you ever given it a thought?
I have a friend that cannot stand going to get a massage and have the massage therapist press a little too hard. She can’t stand it. For me on the other hand, if the massage therapist is not pressing deeply, I don’t feel that I got a massage.
Pain, fear, and other friends are here to teach us something about ourselves. Whether we like it or not, they show up in our lives, physically and emotionally. We do not consciously invite pain, but we definitely invite pain subconsciously. And we do that so we can pay attention to certain things our physical and emotional body is signaling to us and so we can heal.
“Everything is energy and energy is everything.” I didn’t invent this phrase and my research shows that Albert Einstein was not even the first one to come up with this conclusion.
I’m not going to get into the science or philosophy behind this notion; I’ll assume that you and I are on the same page about this idea.
It was only in 2011 that I woke up fully realized through my own personal pain, how energy had played out in my life. How through this pain I was presently going through made this statement so true, that everything is energy and energy is everything.
When Your Desire To Heal Is

When You Surrendered Enough,
When The Time Is The Perfect Time For You
– Solutions Will Show Up.
If you are a religious person, you may pray. If you are a spiritual person, you may pray. If you believe in God, but do not follow any specific dogma, you may pray as well.
If you cannot relate to any of the above, then prayer may not be a part of your life and if it’s not, then know, that no matter where your beliefs or practices lie, prayer is a tool that is available to you at anytime, too.
I am not a religious person. I grew up in a Jewish home, not a religious home, but a home where we respected and followed tradition. My father was a holocaust survivor and he was the youngest of 8 siblings. His siblings as well as their children and my grandparents, all perished in the terror of Nazi Germany.
My father did grow up in a religious home in Czechoslovakia, but after the horrors he went through, he had his issues with God. He may have been angry at God; I’m not sure because he never really spoke about this. Yet with those issues and the pain he carried, I saw him following certain rituals to honor his father, to commemorate him, and remember where he came from.
Take a moment and be honest with yourself. When you wake up every morning, how do you find yourself? Besides knowing that you are alive?
If you are not feeling happy and grateful to wake up, then this article could make a positive shift in not only your life, but your health and your happiness, too.
Experiencing Gratitude On A Daily Basis
Is A Key Ingredient For A Happy And Healthy Life.
You Cannot Be Ungrateful
And Also Be Happy At The Same Time.
There is one thing that we human beings cannot survive without, it’s water. If you are reading my blog-article then you are fortunate enough to have clean and running water at home, yet you may find yourself taking water for granted.
In this 16-part series from pain to freedom articles, I chose to bring up the issue of water consumption as one of the steps to freedom.
I have a family member who doesn’t drink water AT ALL!! He has many physical ailments: he is diabetic, he had a heart attack at age 45, he takes a bunch of medications, his lungs are not functioning well (he used to be a smoker), he is very stressed, he yells a lot, and he probably has other things that I’m not aware of as well.
How can one expect to heal without allowing his/her body to cleanse and rejuvenate?
Many people do not like water; they think it’s boring or flavorless. I can relate as I didn’t drink as much water as I’m drinking nowadays. But after learning so much about health, nutrition, healing, toxins, and so forth, it is hard for me to drink anything else these days, but water.
When I’m in pain or have a problem where I don’t know where to turn, the first thing I do is to turn inwards. It’s not just that “they” say that we have all the answers within, but we really do. And even though we don’t always know how to access these answers, it doesn’t mean that they are not there.
I hear people say that it is hard for them to go within; to sit quietly and listen. I totally get that. I remember my trip to India when I was 26 years old; I was not yet awakened to my spiritual journey and walked by a temple where people were silent for 10 to 30 days at a time.
Back then I thought it was the most bizarre thing a person could do. I judged it and laughed at it. Years later, after I climbed my own spiritual ladder, I understood why people chose to enter into silence and what they may have discovered there.
I have had difficulty in the past holding onto a vision. I let what I see, what my eyes are telling me, dictate my reality but that only brought the same unwanted reality. I’ve learned (the hard way) that when we want something, especially during the moment we are experiencing a pain, an ache, or a discomfort it can be very challenging to hold that vision. Yet we must.
Because the moment we let that vision go, something else will take its place. That’s because where there is an empty space, we tend to fill it with something, so if there is no vision, guess what we’ll be filling it with? Exactly, whatever is currently going on in our life at that moment.
When You Hold Your Dream Long Enough Without Interrupting It, Guess What’s Going To Happen?
We, humans, are creatures of habit. We tend to repeat the same old ways of being. The way we think, the way we speak, the way we engage and interact, the way we take care of ourselves or don’t…
One of the reasons we are “the same old same” is because we may have never taken the time to clarify what we want.
Positive Thinking is not a cliché although it sounds like a fairy tale and not something that is really doable in everyday life. There are great benefits to your health and well being when you do train yourself to think in a positive way. I know it sounds nice when you read it, and you may already find your brain saying: “Yea, right, easier said than done.” But that’s not positive thinking, and by thinking like that, you are preventing great things from coming into your life and improving it, on many different levels.
Negative Thoughts Are Negative Emotions
and Positive Thoughts Are Positive Emotions.
I’ve seen both in my own personal life and in my work with clients. Over and over again, people look for answers for their ailments. They go from one doctor to another, from one therapist to another, and engage with different practitioners. They try this and that diet, different supplements, exercises, and other remedies. Even though they learn a lot and they progress; the results they are seeking are not showing up in a way that they really feel they are healed, that they are free.
The reason why many people don’t get the results they are happy with is because…
They are looking at their (physical or emotional) problem, symptomatically – not from a holistic point of view. Yes, diet, exercise, sleep, and releasing toxins are all great and VERY important, but many times it’s not enough. And I personally know people, who are really good at all of the above; yet they are suffering from pains, from depression, from allergies, they are not making money, and their relationships are suffering.
